The Global Faith Institutes has come under fierce attack and we would ask you to join us in praying for the work of the Institute and for Dr. Mark Christian and his family.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:11, “Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of Me.”
The greatest encouragement in that verse is the affirmation that we at Global Faith Institute are, indeed, doing God’s work, and for that reason, we are being persecuted. We stand strong and united in our resolve to continue being a witness to the Muslim of the life-changing redemption offered by Jesus Christ.
Over the recent weekend, our Facebook page came under a virulent attack in an organized effort from several individuals intent upon smearing our name and mission. Leaving one-star reviews and using rhetoric like “hateful bigots” and “intolerant liars” and “violent anti-Muslim group” caused many of our supporters to rally and reach out to the “reviewers.” By reaching out with Scripture and love, many of those posting hateful comments reacted in anger and revealed that they were Satanists, atheists, agnostics, and one young lady said she was putting a spell on a GFI supporter. Their admissions were revelatory and affirmed our belief that the assault had less to do with their supposed support of Islam and more to do with their hatred of Christianity.
Ephesians 6: 11-17 is our creed as we continue to bring light to a very dark world. “Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm, therefore, having girded your loins with Truth, and having put on the breastplate of Righteousness, and having shod your feet with the Preparation of the Gospel of Peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of Faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one. And take up the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
God’s word tells us that where two or more are gathered in agreement in prayer, He will be among us. We humbly request that our supporters encircle this ministry with your prayers so that our work may continue unhindered.Tags: Christianity, Dr. Mark Christian, Education, Family, Global Faith Institue, Gospel of Peace, prayer
