This past week has been as vicious attack of the devil as I have encountered in a long time. Of course it was all afflictions for the word’s sake. I’m pretty used to this. This came because of my teaching on Jeremiah 8. God’s purpose is to heal his daughters. In these passages we see the men have only healed the daughters of Zion slightly. It tells us here because a man has rejected God’s word and is covetous he does not heal the daughters of Zion. Even the prophets and priests deal falsely. (See verses 9 thru 11).
Men that rejected God’s word brought affliction to the Apostle Paul, just as it has brought affliction into my life also. Paul writes about the persecutions and afflictions which came unto him at Antioch, Iconium and Lystra. These three cities were in the region of Galatia. It has become clear to me the region of Galatia is where he speaks about his eyes being hindered by men who had troubled him.
I have received great affliction and persecution from God’s people in cities such as Dallas, Fort Worth, Tulsa, Joplin, South Bend, Houston, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Anaheim, twenty five years of television throughout the United States, ministering to Africa, speaking on short wave radio all over the world, on the internet for thirteen years, four years of live stream over the internet seven days a week. I am most grateful for the ministry that God has committed unto me. By the grace and mercy of God I’m beginning to overcome this. It took me five days to get healed up from this vicious attack of the devil, but I’m now on top of it. The last two days I have been overcoming some Native American spirits. God has most certainly sent me to the Native Americans with this gospel. I rejoice in the affliction and persecution, out of them all God has delivered me.
