One day two Bible school students came to me bristling in self righteous anger and bursting with accusation against another student.
I invited them to sit down and to tell me their concerns.
They stated that one of the students, an older woman was working witchcraft against them by sending invisible messages to their brains.
Okay…This was going to be a long day.
They were referring to the woman written about in the article EXCOMMUNICATED.
“Let me get this right. That woman is sending invisible messages to your brains?’
“She is sending the messages to both of your brains at the same time?”
Now these two young women were mothers and housewives. They had decided to come to our ministry and become students in our multi media Bible school.
Although they had not been Christians long, they were very enthusiastic and helpful in giving of their time and talents. God’s wisdom and grace was really needed for this one!
First of all, the accused woman was not well liked. She had been an abused wife an also abused as a child. Tragically, she had never been healed of these life experiences. Everybody became victim to her depression.
Many people were already susupicious of her and now these two girls are making a strange and outlandish accusation against her-ONE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD BE HAPPY TO BELIEVE!
We had to nip this in the bud. We had to get to the bottom of the situation.
I asked the girls what Bible school courses they were taking.
The replied that they were taking Demonology.
They were new Christians. I knew that they were way over their heads to begin with. You would not give a new born baby a huge piece of meat. Babes begin on milk until they are able to eat solids.
Two new Christians taking such a powerful course was bound to confuse them.
They needed a beginner's course. How about the Proverbs? That is an excellent study for new Christians.
Although they wanted to take their accusation to the Church, they were convinced to just pray, wait and believe.
I did not believe the accusation. I knew the womans problems, but even if it was true, we have the victory over all things in Jesus Christ. Colossians 2:15 And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
We prayed and spoke peace over the situation. Then we prayed for the woman accused and they were sent on their way.
We first partake the milk of the word, and as we grow we take on stronger meat.
(And although we take on stronger foods as we mature, we always use a little milk as we prepare our food!)
As Christians the young women needed milk first to get grounded and settled before taking on the stronger, deeper things of the spirit.
Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
