Who is the true witness? I ask who really is the true witness
I was on a stroll and sight seeing the other day, while discussing about the various things and places as we went through them with my child who was on the walk with me, we were interrupted by an elderly woman (she was one of two) who wanted to know if I would like to have a little publication they were both carrying in bulk with them.
I looked at what she was talking about and I kindly rejected it with a smile, she insisted that it would benefit me that it is about God and she went further to ask me if I believed in God, I answered in the affirmative that I am a Christian and I believe in God almighty and His Lordship over the heavens and the Earth, but that I have so much Christian literature to read at home and I would not like to accept what she was about to offer me because I would not read it. She introduced them as ‘witnesses’.
I was about to move on, when she stopped me in my tracks with the statement”Do you know that there are two gods?” I cried out in utter disbelief, ‘What’! She said ‘yes, believe it or not’, immediatly, I added, I believe that God almighty is the creator of the heavens and the Earth and He alone is in charge of His world, all others are beneath Him.
She replied me agitatedly that she did not dispute, Jehovah as one but the second (wait for it folks!) is s-a-t-a-n (JESUS IS LORD!!!!!), I KNEW IMMEDIATELY WHAT I WAS DEALING WITH, I said, lady I know of a truth and fact that there is no other except the almighty God who created the heavens and the earth and NONE other can equate himself with Him.
I continued by calmly explaining that satan used to be an angel who became big headed and extremely disobedient and was cast down into the Earth and is referred to as ‘the prince of this world’ committing atrocities, but time is running out on him soon it will be judgment day, at this point, she patted me on the back and said sarcastically, WELL DONE, YOU KNOW YOUR BIBLE WELL.
Suddenly her accomplice (the other one who had kept quiet all this while and actually stood a little way off) interrupted (or tried to come to the aid of her colleague) by trying to explain what the lady meant, whilst the older lady was already getting irritated with me and arguing that there are various versions of the Bible and some lost the true meanings in the translations, now I had heard enough, I just rounded it up by saying with a smile, The Bible is the true word of God and it has everything we need to know about Him in it and I have no reason to doubt, rather I have unshakeable faith in it.
I smiled at them, bid them a good day and took my leave. My child who was dazed by the statement about there being two gods questioned me about it immediately the opportunity presented itself.
I took time to explain about various doctrines going about in the world and what the Bible already prepares us for as Christians especially during this period in time, I went further to explain the work of certain ‘agents’ out there trying to convince (confuse, more like it) God’s children, that is why Jesus enjoins us to WATCH AND PRAY, THAT OUR ADVERSARY, THE DEVIL IS GOING ABOUT LOOKING FOR WHOM TO DEVOUR.
The word of God is our ONLY power tool, we must be prepared so that we do not get TOSSED ABOUT BY EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE because it has been prophesied that at some point in time, EVEN THE VERY ELECT SHALL BE DECEIVED
The enemy we have today is one that changes to fit into his environment like the chameleon (that is why, you find so many in the church who manifest some VERRRRY strange behavior patterns and they have been Christians for ages!), he has mutated over time from generation to generation he has metamorphosed into a very subtle thieving destructive killer, main aim: to take us ALL to hell with him, because he knows his judgement already but you and I still have a chance and he is very jealous about that.
So let us not perish unnecessarily because of lack of knowledge. Beware and allow your spirit man to be in charge more than your flesh in everything that you do
