Question: I want to go and preach the Gospel in some regions of my country were people are involved in occult. I need your help and advice.

ANSWER #1

It is our duty as Christian to Preach the Gospel.

“Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20)

When Jesus send us to go and preach the Gospel, he provides not only the Word, but also the Holy Spirit so that our teaching and message will not be delivered with skillful words of human wisdom, but with convincing proof of the power of God's Spirit. Jesus said ‘But when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be filled with power, and you will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8)

This means that you don't need to fear the occult practices of your people. God has given you his Holy Spirit to help you work in victory. Read, believe and confess 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 The weapons we use in our fight are not the world's weapons but God's powerful weapons, which we use to destroy strongholds. We destroy false arguments; we pull down every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God; we take every thought captive and make it obey Christ.”

Remember that your mission is to preach the kingdom of God by announcing the Life of Jesus Christ, healing the sick and CASTING OUT DEMONS. (Matthew 10:1-8) And according to this message Jesus commissioned you with the power to cast out devils, to set the captives free, to heal the sick, to raise the dead, and nothing shall by any means harm you. Read Luke 10:1-20

Jesus is giving you another promise: "These miraculous signs will follow to those believing these things: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will be well." (Marc 16:17-18). Do not wait for miracles to start happening in your life before you go. Just go and miracles will follow. All these Scriptures are there to assure you that God has deposited something great within you.

Make sure that you are born again, filled with the Holy Spirit, washed and covered with the blood of Jesus. There is not sin or wrong motives in your heart.

In first John we read that: You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. (1John 4:4)

Like apostle Paul Jesus is sending you to go to these people Now stand up. I have appeared to you, because I have chosen you to be my servant. You are to tell others what you have learned about me and what I will show you later." The Lord also said, "I will protect you from the Jews and from the Gentiles that I am sending you to.  I want you to open their eyes, so that they will turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then their sins will be forgiven, and by faith in me they will become part of God's holy people." (Acts 22:16-18)

Salvation is very important and urgent. Take courage, Arise and Go IN THE NAME OF JESUS. God bless you.
