I maintain that as God Bearers, living out God’s purpose does not exempt us from the forces of Resistance.
In our efforts towards continuation of creation, through advocating the Good News, and delivery of Social Justice initiatives here on earth, we will encounter all forms of Resistance.
As a proof text, the Psalmist asserts,
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord rescues them from them all.” – Ps. 34:19
Last Sunday I homed-in on some case studies, with a view to illustrate that God’s call is not dependent on our ‘performance’ but on his providence. As such we should not allow our weaknesses and deficiencies (Internal Resistance) to hold us back from fulfilling his purpose.
This Sunday I will advance my argument with a focus on External Resistance. In the course of my talk I will explore theological developments in our understanding of the Adversary (Satan).
This teaching will shed light on Jesus’ presentation of Satan, and the common misconception in the church today with the terms, blessings and curses.
Join us as we explore External Resistance
