“RESTORING THE MINDS OF MEN FOR JESUS” GLOBAL PROJECT
“And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down – that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: ‘…rejoice, you heavens…But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short’” – Revelation 12:7-12a, 12.
“…who leads the whole world astray…” speaks of satanic attacks on our world via demonic manipulations of the minds (and by extension, the deeds) of men globally toward evil! This definitely is the core of the matter concerning the present bizarre and chaotic condition of our world. This text of Scripture reveals the critical importance of the spiritual health of the mind to the actual quality and safety of life or its debasement and destruction – the devil knows this very well, and he has perfected strategies around this principle in order to plunder the realm of man. The key to this strategy of Satan lies in the fact that no one is anything outside of what goes on in his mind; as a man thinks in his heart, so he is (reasons, speaks, behaves etc Proverbs 23:7a; 6:18 KJV).
In our generation, as civilization progresses, billions of people all over the world are increasingly being influenced by evil one way or another in peculiar dimensions never experienced before.
Millions of people all over the world are learning to read and getting ‘educated’ in different kinds of toxic philosophies and ideologies, and what they read or get ‘educated’ in is vitally important because it is highly likely to determine or make them who they eventually become. Our world is in great turmoil, experiencing high level insecurity, violence, spiritual strives, decay and moral rottenness, political and economic instability etc because of what goes on (the ‘stuffs’) in the minds of men, and ‘who’ or ‘what’ controls these ‘stuffs’; the ‘one’ “…who leads the whole world astray…”!
Until men’s minds are penetrated, illuminated, renewed, transformed, and won over to God through Jesus, our world will know no peace; instead, it will get deeper and deeper into chaos and decay! This is because Jesus is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).
The word of God strongly counsels that our minds should be guarded with all diligence because out of it flows the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23). Therefore, the best form of ‘security’ is taking back (securing) the minds of men for Jesus globally (Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21).
It is quite disturbing that in recent times, like never before, the devil has been expanding the frontiers of his corruption, perversions and perdition in the minds of billions of people the world over. And through these human instruments, agents, collaborators or accomplices, he has stepped up frightening global subtle and overt campaigns, attacks, hostilities, rebuffs and refutations of the reality and relevance of God, true spirituality, as well as the authenticity and relevance of biblical Christianity and spiritual matters to modern society. It is a fierce war going on between the kingdom of God (the kingdom of Light and Truth), and the forces of hell (humanism, false religion, ‘perverted application’ of constitutions, science, technology, the social media, etc).
Because there is no vacuum in nature; if truth is silent, reticent or compromised at this critical period of human history, evil, false religion, corruption and wickedness will unleash their reign of terror on us all – far more than we are all seeing and experiencing right now all over the world (Proverbs 28:12)!
Presently, there are about 8 billion people on this planet. Of this population, about 2.1 billion are professing Christians of different denominations and ‘shades’ (only heaven knows how many out of this number are wholly committed to Christ and his Truth!). The majority rest comprises of the following :
- Avowed outright ‘anti-christs’,
- People who are aware of Jesus but indifferent to his salvation, and
- Those who have never heard about him
In this non-Christ believing majority lies the bulk of the potential ‘human army’ of evil. If the devil and his ‘armed forces’ get the upper hand in this battle, he will debase and unleash his long, well planned and coordinated global satanic terror on all; he will ravage and lay waste the entire landscape of our world! The Bible says he comes to steal, to kill and to destroy (John 10:10). By nature, Satan deceives, plunders and decapitates, and all of his activities certainly leads to spiritual, moral, and physical death.
There is no neutrality in this fierce conflict! But the “good news” is, as God’s children, together in the power of the Holy Spirit, the blood of the Lamb, our testimonies in the Word of God, and fervent prayer (James 5:16b-18; Revelation 12:11), we can push back the devil’s numerous evil frontiers and defeat the terrible, life-threatening global darkness he already generated and now speedily gathering demonic momentum.
Light will always disperse darkness. God’s unadulterated truth as revealed in the Bible is the Light. God helping us, we will embark on aggressive Valid Spiritual Truth (VST) mass education and enlightenment drive, by putting in the hands of as many people as possible from all works of life, all over the world, free copies of printed books, booklets, e-books, audio files, and other VST education resource materials, to help flood the minds of people with God’s authentic Light, that they may be free from the power of darkness .
Our approach to presenting God’s eternal Truth is not theological or academic. Rather, we present God’s immutable Truth in simple, direct, engaging, and practical ways, in the context of ‘ordinary’ day to day phenomena, within the context of the truth and authority of Scripture. The purpose of this is to ‘unveil’ and show (in an objective way) the Jesus ‘signature’, factor, or presence in everything, and consequently his absolute right of lordship over all, under the illuminating power of the Holy Spirit, with utmost sense of care and responsibility.
