Daily Topic for June 19, 2012
Since Christ is everything the Father is, He has power over every spiritual power and authority. This is very good news to the peoples of East Asia like the E people who have cowered before spirit beings! Jesus alone has power over these gods that aren’t gods. But it will take faith that Jesus has the power. Where will this faith come from?
Pray for the power of Christ over all spirit beings to be clearly demonstrated to the unreached people groups of East Asia.
Imagine having a name that sounds like a letter. Yet, in China there is a tiny flower in God’s garden of humanity called the “E” people. They number only 41,500, and most of them live in China’s Guangxi Province.
A missionary doctor who died in 1927 lamented about the E: “Men and women are toiling without a Bible, without a Sunday, without a prayer, without songs of praise. They have rulers without justice, homes without peace, marriage without sanctity, young men and women without ideals, little children without purity or innocence, mothers without wisdom or self-control, poverty without relief or sympathy, sickness without skillful help or tender care, sorrow and crime without remedy, and worst of all, death without Christ.”
Today the situation is not much different; Operation China tells us that there are no believers among them.
Let us remember that we do not struggle against flesh and blood. It is our duty to pray against the deception that veils the hearts and minds of the E. Jesus has been given all authority over heaven and earth and scripture says that what we bind on earth is bound in heaven in His name.
Pray that deception will be bound and cast down in the hearts of the E people. Pray that workers will be called to the E to tell them of the good news, and their released souls will accept the gift of salvation with great joy.
