Today a battle commences in Parliament when Mp’s Nadine Dorries and Frank Field put forward a vote for women to be allowed access to independent counselling on abortion. Already Nadine has become the target from a fierce militant opposition with insults and death threats t’boot.
At first I was surprised at how hostile these people were (mostly women) over what seemed a perfectly reasonable suggestion but then I came to realise that this was about a spiritual battle, rather than a battle against the flesh.
Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
There is a growing anti-Christian movement in the western world, in Australia the government wish to remove BC and AD from all history books within their schools!! Why?… to try to erase Christ from History! Should we be surprised maybe not, when Christ warned us that the world hated him first and therefore it will hate us too.
John 15:18 “If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first.
John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
As for us, we must continue to be a witness for Christ in this world no matter how bumpy it gets and remember that He has overcome the world!
