The Beatitudes – God’s Plan For Battle
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
I love a good fight. And when unjustly attacked I have learned to seek the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit and retaliate by Overcoming Evil With Good: There is a huge difference between a Peacemaker and a Pacifist!
This Battle Plan, gleaned from the life and message of Jesus, has been on my heart even before I was kidnapped by terrorists in 1983 and held hostage under extreme conditions. Since then, thousands of missionaries, pastors and Christians have been kidnapped, murdered or forced to flee from their places of ministry in rural Colombia.
Many of those who chose to remain in the path of ever present danger have rallied around this message. A thriving Underground Church is beginning to multiply in a huge area (about the size of North Korea) in the south and east of this country where Bibles, Church Buildings, Formal Ministry and even House Meetings have been prohibited for more than 25 years.
Severe Persecution in rural Colombia has actually served to bring real Christians together, identify the True Church and cleanse believers from corruption so that the Promises of God can be fulfilled.
