10 DAYS OF FASTING & PRAYING SATURDAY 19TH of SEPTEMBER – MONDAY 28TH of SEPTEMBER 2020
THEME: “TEN DAYS OF REPENTANCE SEEKING AFTER GOD”
DATE: SATURDAY 19th of Sep – MONDAY 28th of Sep (6am -6pm)
SCRIPTURE: Acts 3:19-20 “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before,”
Peter in one of the most powerful sermons given in the Bible commanded the people to “repent” (Greek for “metanoeō” to change one’s mind) and turn back (“turn back is the Greek word “epistrephō” meaning “to turn to” God). Only if they had a change of mind could they turn back to God, which would then allow their sins to be blotted out. If there is no change of mind and if there is no turning to God, there cannot be the forgiveness of sins. If you believe the church needs revival then it must start with us first, because only then can revival possibly spread to those around you in and in the church, then outward to the community and hopefully, reaching out to the lost if perhaps God grants them repentance because without repentance, there can be no revival and without revival, there can be no awakening of the large harvest of souls. Such a revival giving lost souls the chance for their sins to be forgiven and give eternal life for those who are presently separated from God by their sins (Isaiah 59:1-2). That’s what revival is all about precious saints.
Now just to digress a little, the Lord recently gave me a dream with an important message. In the dream I was given a scroll from a messenger from heaven and when I opened the scroll I read and heard an audible voice mention the date 26th of September 2020 Fall (Autumn). After hearing this voice, I immediately awoke from the dream and understood that this was for the United States of America. Then further instructions where given that I needed to call for 10 days corporate fasting and prayer during the days of Awe or more commonly know as the 10 Days of Repentance in the Hebrew calendar. There is a lot to repent of today within our nations with so many evil things being brought to the light within this hour and just to name a few abortion (killing of innocent unborn baby’s), human trafficking, paedophile syndicates, greed, murder, hatred (racism), rebellion, deception, lying, perversion etc and the list goes on. We are truly living in a time were the Prophet Isaiah spoke of in Isaiah 5:20 were people would say good is evil and evil is good. This September should be a time of coming back to God, as an individual, as a church and as a nation.
Now just so we understand the significance of the dream and the Jewish feasts connection, I thought it is important for us to understand the Jewish Feasts a little better before we get into the program. So, the first of the Fall (Autumn) Feasts on the Hebrew calendar is the Feast of Trumpets. The Hebrew people commonly refer to this feast as Rosh Hashanah, which literally means “head of the year.” It is the Jewish New Year’s Day and is celebrated on the first two days of their month Tishri.
During the Feast of Trumpets, God instructed “you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with the blast of trumpets, a holy convocation.” (Leviticus 23:24). Rosh Hashanah is also the first of a ten-day period during which God’s people enter into self-examination and repentance, known as the 10 Days of Awe, which conclude on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. It is a time to also forgive people of their debts and anyone that may of offended us. So to many Jewish people around the world it is a time for serious self-examination, a time to consider the sins of the previous year and repent before Yom Kippur which is the Day of Atonement.
During these Ten Days of Repentance, we will provide you with daily teachings and instructions to follow for each of the days. These devotional thoughts will hopefully be a blessing to you and help you draw closer to the Lord. We will also present a passage or two from the Bible for you to meditate upon, and allow the Lord to speak to you through His word during this important season of the year, as we the called out ones prepare in holiness for the snatching away of His bride.
During the 10 days, we will believe God for revival, miracles and breakthrough in our spiritual lives. Whether this is your first time fasting or you have done this many times, the result is always a closer connection with God and a stronger church family.
We are excited about the remaining of 2020 despite the troubles we have seen with our natural eyes, but remember Jesus said to be not troubled (Matthew 24:5). We are expectant of a mighty manifestation of the supernatural in our midst and upon the earth! As you enter this fast, release decrees and declarations that you will see the burdens of the beginning of this year fall from you and have a renewed vision and hope for the later part of 2020, no matter what the future holds Jesus is alive saints! He is still healing today and is still sitting on the throne!

What am I required to fast from?
We want to leave this decision up to you. We do not have any mandatory church-wide requirements for how you fast, but here are a few ideas:
When we choose not to eat or not to eat certain foods, we allow our physical bodies to hunger and to bring our desires into alignment with our spiritual need for God. There is a clarity in hearing from the Lord which comes when we fast and pray; making a small sacrifice to give up a “pleasure” or comfort to increase your spiritual sight and vision.
We are providing the following options for you to consider:
1. Food Fast
You fast from all foods from either 10pm-6pm (20 hours) or 6am-6pm (12 hours) each day with fluids allowed.
2. Partial Fast
You choose to eliminate certain things i.e. fizzy drinks; sweets/chocolates, bread, no red meat etc, but the rest of your diet remains mainly the same
3. Fruit and Veg
Eat fruit during the day, with liquids (tea/limited coffee, herbal drinks and water) with a veg meal in the evenings
4. Liquids only during day and veg meal for dinner
Drink water and herbal drinks during the day with a veg meal in the evenings.
Please consult your doctor if there are any medical concerns before you commence the fast.
During this time, we encourage you to turn off the TV, computer, video games, Facebook, twitter, Instagram, the Internet, and any other form of social media for a brief peri od of time. You may decide to fast from Facebook or some other form of media altogether or to limit your time to only 1-2 hours per week. When we do this, we create more time when we can read our Bible, pray, worship, and hear from God.
Search your heart in deciding what type of food fast you want to do. If you have never fasted, maybe start off with a partial fast and progress to a fruit and veg option for the last 3 days. Remember, the most important consideration in fasting is your motive. Why are you fasting?
What will we be praying about?
Check each day for the next 10 days there will theme topics, scriptures and prayers so you may follow corporately all together. We are trusting the Lord that this time of fasting and prayer will release a passion for His name within us – to cut off what belongs to a past seasons, to receive renewed hope and vision for our lives/ministries, to be conduits for signs, wonders and miracles and to fulfill the mandate of sharing the gospel to the ends of the earth! During this time of fasting, be intentional about your priorities. Set aside ample time to be alone with the Lord. The more time you spend with God, the more meaningful your fast will be. If you need an overview or suggestions on what you can do to make the most of the fast in terms of having a daily routine, use the below points:
Begin your day in praise and worship
Read the days program and meditate on God’s Word
Invite Holy Spirit to work in you
Take a short prayer walk
Spend time in intercessory prayer for the theme of the day
Make time for an unhurried time of “seeking God’s face”
If others are fasting with you, meet together for prayer
Avoid television or any other distraction that may affect your spiritual focus and watch the daily uploads to YouTube. You are welcome to watch Christian movies etc.
When possible, begin and end each day with your spouse, family or friend for a brief time of praise and thanksgiving to the Lord.
Please let us know you’ll be fasting & praying with us!
PRACTICAL TIPS FOR FASTING:
1. Avoid medical and even natural herbal drugs. However, if you are under medication, these should only be withdrawn upon the advice of your doctor. You may choose to just skip one meal a day to still be able to take all medications.
2. Limit your physical activity and exercise. If you have a workout routine, adjust it accordingly.
3. Rest as much as you can if needed be.
4. Maintain an attitude of prayer throughout the day. Intercede for your family, pastors, church, nation, missionaries & world missions, etc.
5. Drink plenty of clean water if you are joining the water fast.
6. As your body adjusts, be prepared for temporary bouts of physical weakness as well as a greater likelihood of impatience, irritability, and anxiety.
DAY 1 THEME: "THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS”
DATE: SATURDAY 19TH OF SEPTEMBER 2020
SCRIPTURE TEXT: Leviticus 23:24 “you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with the blast of trumpets, a holy convocation.”
Tonight, begins Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) which is the New Year celebration of Jewish people all over the earth. It is the Feast of Trumpets and starts 10 Days of Repentance and ends with Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement). Though these two Holidays are for the Jewish Peoples, we have chosen what Israelites call “The High and Holy Holidays” for our “10 Days of Prayer & Fasting” because of their prophetic nature. That is, in His first coming Christ fulfilled the first four Jewish Feasts (for instance The Passover when He died on the Cross for our sins and Pentecost when the Holy Spirit kicked off the Church Age ten days after Jesus Ascension into Heaven), but in His Second Coming He will fulfill the last three Jewish Feasts. Therefore, these “10 Days of Prayer & Fasting” are perfect timing for praying for the Second Coming of our Lord and Saviour!
Why is it important for a Christian believer to understand what is hidden in the old testament? The New Covenant message is the ultimate message that gets people saved and into heaven. But what do you do after when people have been saved? See there is a deep of study that can only come from the depth and study of the entire word of God. See the Old Testament is the New Testament concealed. The New Testament is the old Testament revealed.
The Apostle Paul suggests the importance of understanding and even experiencing the Jewish festivals in his letter to Timothy. He writes,
“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
I have found the above verses to be very helpful and practical in understanding the role of the festivals in the lives of believers in Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah.
In using the term Scripture, Paul is referring to the entirety of the Old Testament. Certainly, we can infer that this is also true of the New Testament, but specifically, Paul has the Hebrew Scriptures in mind. Remember he was a radical orthodox pharisee that was very well trained in the Torah (Old Testament), but He was radically converted. See every part of the Bible is useful to us in the process of growing to spiritual maturity and this would include the Jewish holidays, as they all see Christ Jesus ultimately one day fulfilling all at His second coming.
Paul is not suggesting that we must keep these festivals in any particular way, nor is he suggesting that we are under obligation to keep them! Rather, he tells us that every verse in every one of the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament is helpful and may be utilized for spiritual benefit. This would be true of the festivals outlined in Leviticus 23 and would include the three fall events: the New Year, the Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles. Therefore, learning more about these “feasts” is helpful for your spiritual journey. And for me, the emphases of the first two holidays on repentance and forgiveness creates a magnificent backdrop for understanding the work of Jesus the Messiah, who died that we might live. This time of fasting and prayer allows us to prioritise our relationship with the Lord at the start of the Hebrew calendar new year; releasing all that held us back, hurt or hindered us in 2020; freeing us up to enter this new Hebrew year hungry for the supernatural to increase in our lives and prepare for the rapture of the church.
His Word also declares “Be in awe and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted throughout the earth.” (Psalm 46:10) Whereas God is usually seeking us, during the 10 Days of Awe the Jewish believer will seek Him. It is as if the Father is saying to His children, “If you want to know Me, seek Me!” Therefore, I have decided it is a time for us to seek more of the Holy Spirit during this time, who in the one in charge of the sanctification process to prepare us for His coming. So, let’s go a little deeper the hebrew term Yamim Noraim or the עשרת ימי תשובה, (10 Days of Awe) refers not only to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, but the seven days in between. In 2020, Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Friday, Sept. 18 and ends at sundown on Sunday, Sept. 20.
This year Days of Awe 2020-2021/5781, on our calendar, these feasts are:
Sep 18 – Sep 19 – Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets)
Sep 19 – Sep 27 – 7 Days of Awe between
Sep 27 - Sep 28 – Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement)
Rosh Hashanah It is a time of inner renewal and divine atonement and is one of the High Holiday periods. The Days of Awe represent the climax of a longer process. Starting at the beginning of the previous month, called Elul, the shofar is traditionally sounded at the conclusion of the morning service. A ram’s horn that makes a trumpet-like sound, the shofar is intended as a wake-up call to prepare for the Tishrei holidays. One week before Rosh Hashanah, special petitionary prayers called Selichot are added to the ritual. Rosh Hashanah itself is also known as Yom Hadin or the Day of Judgment, on which God opens the Books of Life and Death, which are then sealed on Yom Kippur.
Shofar — Pronounced shoh-FAR or SHOH-far (rhymes with “so far”). The ram’s horn that is sounded during the month of Elul, on Rosh Hashanah, and at the end of Yom Kippur. It is mentioned numerous times in the Bible, in reference to its ceremonial use in the Temple and to its function as a signal-horn of war. On the Feast of Trumpets, it says In Leviticus 23:24 God commands his people to gather and to commemorate the decree with trumpet blasts. On the same front, the sound of a trumpet is also associated with the rapture, or the time Jesus will return for his bride (1 Corinthians 15:52). Once he returns, there will be a wedding feast of celebration. Revelation 19:9 says, “Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb”. He is preparing us to celebrate!
The Days of Awe are filled with wonder and worship, days of reflection, fasting, and prayer, days of solemnity and solace. These are days meant to set the tone for the beginning of the Jewish New Year even as they remind the faithful to reflect on what has gone before. So, during this time according to Jewish custom, God, in a sense, withdraws His presence in order to create a hunger in the hearts of His people so that they will abandon all else in pursuit of Him. In this season, we are commanded to celebrate the freedom, victory, healing, blessing, peace, and dominion that Christ our Redeemer provisioned for us by the atoning work of His cross – and a reminder of His soon-coming return.
The main thrust of our prayers will be in three areas today. First, that there will be UNITY in the Body of Christ. Our Lord prayed that we would be one as He and the Father are One (John 16:21). Second, that believers would gain greater maturity in Christ. The church is meant by God to equip us for good works in Jesus so that we might all come to unity through growing more and more into Christlikeness (Ephesians 4:11-16). Third, that the church might be getting ready for the rapture of the church and the Second Coming of our LORD. Worship is a wonderful way to do this, and also evangelizing. Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “The gospel must be preached to every nation and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14). So, our prayer targets each day will be 1.) For Ourselves to grow in Christ and in unity toward one another. 2.) For our city’s and families, because there are many lost around us that need to hear the gospel and be saved and our like-minded churches need to continue to work together to help all believers be “salt & light” here for Christ. 3.) For our Nations as the Pentecostal, Charismatic, Evangelical Churches etc desperately needs revival. 4.) For our world which needs to have greater peace. But only through Christ will that peace come, for He is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6-7). We need to pray that the Great Commission will be fulfilled in our lifetime (Matthew 28:18-20).
PRAYER FOCUS DAY 1:
Prayer for Ourselves: (1 John 5:13) “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. 14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.”
Prayer for your city: Matthew 5:13-16 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Pray for unity of the Spirit between family members, churches, and the desire to work together, so that the lost will be saved, and Christians would be “salt & light” here.
Prayer for our Nation: 2 Chronicles 7:14 “if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.” Pray that believers all over your nation and particularly within the United States of America would join in repentance and truly seek the face of God. Pray that the church would be revived and, as Christians starting to get it right with each other that the world would know we are Christians by our love for one another.
Prayer for our World: Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Pray that the gospel will be spread throughout the nations of the world and that “The Prince of Peace” would rule in the hearts of men, women, boys, and girls!
DAY 2 THEME: "SAINTS WE NEED MORE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT”
DATE: SUNDAY 20TH OF SEPTEMBER 2020
SCRIPTURE TEXT: Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
As this starts off day two of ten days of fasting and praying the weeks of awe, I want us to start off today by repenting of all known and unknown sins before the Lord. For according to 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
See it is the Holy Spirit that convicts us of sin (John 16:8), so ask the Holy Spirit now to reveal to you any area within your life that needs repenting and start to confess to the Lord with a broken heart and a contrite spirit (Psalm 51:17)
As you allow the blood of Jesus to wash you today from all unrighteousness, I want us to focus back on the today’s main scripture. Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Jesus was giving His disciples the very invitation to receive the power of God from on high. See Jesus knew the importance of the Holy Spirit, because without the Holy Spirit He could not do the mission before Him. (Acts 10:38)
So, if Jesus emphasised the importance of receiving the Holy Spirit, then why do we not hunger and thirst for the gift of the Spirit more today? Why do we not talk of it, pray for it, and preach concerning it? The Lord is more willing to give the Holy Spirit to all those who hunger and thirst for Him. He desires to give more of the Holy Spirit to all those that serve Him, just like good parents that reward their children with gifts. God desires to give you more and more of His Spirit each day.
Imagine we had ordinary men and women that were waiting in one place in one accord worship God with an expectation of something that they had never experienced before. But when the power of God came it transformed this ordinary people to do extraordinary tasks before them. The church of Jesus Christ was announced with a mighty rushing wind and a tornado of fire that would transform life’s forever. They became the people they became and led thousands to Christ, because they were filled with the Holy Spirit.
As I look back at my own introduction to the baptism of the Holy Spirit. I was at a charismatic long weekend with a group of youth that also did not know what to expect, but that weekend the Holy Spirit came down with fire. Where tongues of fire touched tongues of flesh and I started to speak in the heavenly language. Where gifts of prophecy, words of knowledge and visions were imparted. Where a new spiritual boldness was given to reach lost souls, where a new deep love for the God head and Holy Spirit formed. Yes, I was never the same for something compelled me to share this experience with others, so others could also come into the fullness of what the baptism of the Holy Spirit promises for all who ask and wait upon Him.
See at that time I started to pray for people and many also were being filled within the Holy Spirit and no matter where God was moving, I wanted to be there to experience more of the Holy Spirit. I also remember the persecution that came from the religious people around us, that could not understand this newfound love for God or speaking in an unknown language. But despite of the attacks from religious people the joy of the Lord always overcome the attacks. When you pray for people and they start to be healed of their sickness or delivered from their oppression; then you not only know God is with you, but that He will do what He says He will do in His Word. What about you? Do you need more of the Holy Spirit in your life? Then Cry out to Him to fill you starting from today.
Here Are Further Scriptures To Dwell Upon:
Paul once asked 12 men from Ephesus, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” (Acts 19:2, NLT). How would you answer? The Ephesian men said, “No, we have not even heard of the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 8:16—When the Holy Spirit comes among us, we will confess our sins and receive the gift of salvation through Jesus. We will have assurance of salvation because we are children of God.
Ezekiel 36:25-27—The presence of the Holy Spirit will give us a new mind and a new heart. We will have victory over our sins and see real character growth.
John 7:38, 39 and Galatians 5:22, 23—When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, the fruit of the Spirit—the character of God—will flow from us like rivers of living water.
Acts 4:13, 31—The abiding presence of the Holy Spirit will motivate and empower us to share the gospel with as many people as possible.
John 16:13—As the Spirit dwells in us, we will have a hunger and love for the Bible, and He will lead us into all truth. This truth is not just a technical understanding of facts but the very character of Christ, who is the Truth.
Romans 8:26, 27—As we pray in the Holy Spirit, we will have power in our prayers and will see many miraculous answers to prayer.
Jesus said there would be two groups of Christians just before His return (Matthew 25). “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.” (Matthew 25:). Five bridesmaids were foolish and had no oil (the presence of the Holy Spirit; see Zechariah 4:1-6) in reserve. These represent those who appear to be followers of Jesus but are not. They are religious but not spiritual. Thus Jesus said to them, “I don’t know you!” The five wise bridesmaids had plenty of oil. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and had a genuine relationship with Jesus. The disciples, in obedience to the command of Christ, remained in Jerusalem after His ascension. “They spent all of their time in the Temple, praising God” (Luke 24:53). When they were not in the temple, they were in the upper room. “They all met together and were constantly united in prayer, along with Mary the mother of Jesus, several other women, and the brothers of Jesus” (Acts 1:14, NLT). Ten days later they were all baptized in the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2), and 3,000 were converted in one day in that one place!

DAY 3 THEME: “EXPOSING SATANS AGENDA TO THE NATIONS”
DATE: MONDAY 21ST OF SEPTEMBER 2020
SCRIPTURE TEXT: Numbers 23:23 says, “Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!”
Luke 10:19 says, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
So, what is satan’s plan and agenda you might be saying? Anyone who seeks to have a CLOSE relationship with God through prayer and desire for greater intimacy with the Father through the finished work of the Son, Jesus — will become a prime target for satanic attacks. The Bible says that there is an enemy who is bent on destruction
John 10:10 The thief comes to kill, steal, and destroy… and will do whatever it takes to leave us discouraged, doubting and defeated Christians. In our “scientific” society where nothing you can’t see, feel, touch, taste or smell seems real, some scoff at the mention of a spiritual battle. The Bible, however, makes it clear: We have an “enemy the devil [who] prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
But Jesus promises that His followers can both survive and thrive through the battle: “I have come that they may have life and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
In most nations today become much more popular than it was say 30 years ago. Today, there is popular Satanic music, Satanic street gangs, an increase in Satanic worship, a more widespread use of the horoscope and study of the signs of the zodiac, and Satanic games that can be purchased. Despite this, many people do not take the occult seriously. They laugh off the notion of the Power of Evil as actually being a part of the "real" world in which we live.
I do believe that demonic influence is very real and that it constitutes a dangerous threat to our spiritual well-being. What is written here is, at best, a brief summary of a reality that I have no desire to spend much time exploring. My purpose is simply to give you enough knowledge to be able to at least suspect the presence of the occult and evil, so that you can avoid it completely.
Satan Has a Terrible Plan against Gods creation and to every believer of Christ Jesus. In the letter to the Ephesians (1:3-10), the apostle Paul tells us that God chose us in Jesus Christ before the world began. We are called to be holy and without sin in his sight. God called us to be his children through Jesus Christ. In Jesus and through his Blood we have been saved and our sins forgiven. This is how generous God our Father has been with us. And He has given us the wisdom to understand this mystery, this plan He revealed to us in Christ.
Now the kingdom of God is absolutely opposed to Satan's kingdom. Salvation in Jesus Christ presupposes our rejection of the kingdom of darkness. Our life, though, is a spiritual warfare. In the first letter of John.
1 John 5:18-20 “We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. 19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.”
Peter tells us two things. First of all we who are born of God and are protected by God, so that the Evil One cannot touch us. But he also tells us that the whole world is under the Evil One. See the Evil One can tempt us, but he cannot touch us directly unless we open the door for him. We should not fear Satan nor should we be constantly looking for him in the ordinary happenings of our life or under every rock as I like to put it. Do not concentrate on the Evil Spirits but fix your eyes and your faith upon Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We are saved by grace in faith of Jesus Christ alone. Through prayer and obedience and adherence to the Word of God in the Bible we are fuelled to finish the race He has started. He who started that good work in us shall be finished in Jesus Mighty Name!

Among many descriptive titles, the Devil is called the wicked one, adversary, father of lies. Fallen angels are called evil spirits, demons, unclean spirits. Together, their expressed activities include:
•Tempting (Matthew 4:1)
•Lying (John 8:44)
•Accusing (Zechariah 3:1)
•Corrupting (2 Peter 2:10-12) “and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of [a]dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord. 12 But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and
