Title: A reason to pray
Post by: episkopos on January 09, 2014, 02:25:00 PM
When you do not pray, your life in this world will be governed purely by the god or controller of this world.   In the Bible, Satan is called the god of this world.

 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (2 Corinthians 4:4)

The god of this world is the ruler and governor of the events and circumstances in the world.  The god of this world, Satan, is therefore directing the affairs of this world.   

When you do not pray, you do not call on God to intervene in the life you are leading on this earth.  Whether you like it or not, the life you have on this earth is affected by the head of state of your country.

 In the same way, our lives on earth are greatly affected by the one who controls the kingdoms of the earth.  Almighty God expects you to invite Him to legally intervene in the events and circumstances of your life here. 

If there is no intervention, things will go a certain way.  In the book of Ecclesiastes, there is a prediction that all those born in a certain kingdom will be poor.

For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor. (Ecclesiastes 4:14)

Indeed, all those born in certain parts of the world are usually poor.  Unless there is some special intervention, if you live in certain countries you will be poor.   

Indeed, we all need the special intervention of the Lord because we are working and dwelling in a world ruled by a very wicked being.

How can you live in this world without calling on God to intervene and to step into your life under this terrible, wicked, fallen enemy of God? It is time to pray and commit yourself to God. 

It is time to deliver yourself out of the patterns and stereotypes which Satan has prepared for those who live in this world.
