About the Author
I love a good fight. When unjustly attacked, I have learned to seek the guidance and leadership 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 for
spiritual warfare, gleaned from the life and message of Jesus, especially
the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes, was on my heart even before I was
kidnapped by terrorists and held hostage under extreme conditions in 1983. Since then, thousands of missionaries,
pastors, and other Christians have been
kidnapped, murdered, or forced to flee from their places of ministry in rural
Colombia. Had these Christians known and understood this battle plan for spiritual warfare, they could have been victorious
instead of prematurely suffering defeat.
Many who did choose to remain
in the path of ever present danger have rallied around this message. A thriving
underground church is multiplying in a huge area
(about the size of North Korea) in the south and east of Columbia 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 in deepening Christian relationships, identify
the true church, and cleanse believers from corruption. This has been possible
because of the remnant that has been chosen to fight the good fight of faith.
