Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

 “Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Matt 28:18,19).

When Jesus was raised from the dead all power in heaven and in earth was given to Him. “Go ye therefore” shows that the same power and authority is given to us – although we appear to be insignificant to the world.

A missionary lady in Africa had a small fellowship of African souls. One day, as they were worshiping the Lord, a witch doctor entered the church and challenged her power. “I‘m going to perform a miracle,” he said, “If your Jesus can perform a greater miracle, I promise to become a Christian.” The missionary lady knew that Jesus had greater power and authority than all the demons put together. Her little congregation also encouraged her to take up the challenge and prove that Jesus had greater power and authority than the devil.

The witch doctor came up to the front and lay face down on the ground, and as he kept chanting something, his body started rising from the floor. The body rose almost up to the pulpit in the lying position. The missionary lady wondered what greater miracle she could do; in fact, she had never performed any miracle. But as she and the whole congregation were praying, the anointing of the Holy Spirit came upon her with power and authority. Stretching her hands towards the man she said, “In the Name of Jesus, get out, you demon!” Instantly, as if he had been shot, the witch doctor fell to the ground like a sack of potatoes. He could not even move his limbs till he accepted the Lord Jesus Christ.

Dear child of God, He that is in you is greater than he (the devil) that is in the world. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Our God will do great things for His glory.
