NOTE:  Welcome to 2014, my friends!  Every blessing in Christ
for the new year. - Andrew Strom.

by David Wilkerson

Ask anyone who has been called by God to step out into some
new work of the Kingdom and that person will tell you that Satan
has come at him in a rage, hurling one affliction after another.

So it was in the life of Christ. As soon as Jesus had been baptized,
with the dove appearing and the voice from heaven declaring Him
the Lamb of God, Satan went to work. He knew he had only forty
days and nights to try to devour Jesus and stop His ministry (see
Matthew 4).

No sooner did Jesus declare Peter a rock of faith than Satan moved
in to sift the disciple, driving him to unbelief and betrayal (see Luke
22:21). Satan knew he had to act quickly in Peter´s life, before
Jesus´ words about the disciple could come to pass-but the
temptation ultimately failed!

I know what this kind of hellish attack is all about because it
happened to me when God gave me a fresh call to ministry! After
spending much time in prayer, I sensed God´s call to expand my
ministry by speaking to pastors around the world. (I was not
leaving the ministry of Times Square Church, or the ministry of
these written messages. I was only adding this occasional aspect
of ministry, by the direction of the Holy Spirit.)

I was planning to speak to gatherings of pastors in France, Romania,
Poland and the Balkans. No sooner had I scheduled this trip than
Satan moved in. Up to that point I had been at the peak of health
but suddenly I was struck down physically. Within a matter of hours
I became so weak I could hardly walk. I felt sharp, agonizing internal
pains and soon blotches appeared on my stomach.

A doctor friend told me I had shingles, a disease that comes from
the remains of childhood chickenpox. The devil seemed to be
laughing, saying, "So you´re taking on this new ministry, are you?
You won´t if I can help it!"

Yet, within weeks of my trip, all the sores disappeared. The Lord
raised me up and gave me new strength. It all was warfare from
hell! It has always been this way throughout my years in ministry.
Every new acceptance of a call from the Lord has been followed
by demonic attacks.
