HEARTS RIPE FOR HARVEST: THE HOLY SPIRIT CONFRONTS MAGIC
Galina Touches a Bible
In Turkmenistan, Galina invited Mahira, her friend, to visit her home, but was dismayed when Mahira arrived with a Bible. “This is an evil book. I cannot read it,” Galina said in alarm.
Mahira knew the Bible was a life-changing book, but realized the change was for the better and nothing for Galina to fear. Mahira wanted her friend to have the same hope she herself had found in Jesus Christ.
With a warm smile and a tone of assurance Mahira said, “Just pick it up, pick any page and just read.” Galina managed to read only two verses out loud when she was overcome with tears and ran to her bedroom.
The Power of Conviction
Mahira was dismayed. What had happened? Should she leave, wait, or follow Galina into her room?
The answer came quickly. Galina walked back into the main room and in her hands was a massive book full of magic spells. How amazing Galina feared the Bible, which offers her the Hope of Heaven, but was not afraid of dabbling in black magic. How Satan twists us up when we have no access to the Truth.
The Power of Salvation
“I repent of this magic. I ask God to forgive me for leaning on my magic to live,” Galina announced to Mahira. She went on to accept Jesus Christ as her Savior. Now Galina and Mahira are more than friends. They are sisters-in-Christ, Children of the Most High God.
We are amazed at how the Holy Spirit works. The Spirit used the two verses Galina read at random to convict her of her sinful nature and her need for a Savior. Isaiah 55:11 assures us, “so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
Mahira has been shepherded by one of home pastors GHM trains and mentors. Now this pastor will also shepherd Galina. The Kingdom will grow as these faithful servants minister to the lost lambs in The Middle East and Central Asia.
