Over a week ago Burkina Faso was back in the news with the terrible and evil act of the slaughter of Sahlon, a village in the north. But that isn’t the whole news. This last week 400 delegates gathered for a 5 day National Mission Consultation to plan for the next 5 years to plant at least 1 church for 1,000 people or 1 church per village!
Whatever the enemy does the Kingdom does more!
At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the reports about Jesus, and he said to his attendants, ‘This is John the Baptist; he has risen from the dead! That is why miraculous powers are at work in him.’ (Matthew 14 v 1-2)
Imagine what King Herod was feeling?!
He was obviously wrong. But there was a part truth. The truth of continuity.
Herod removed John the Baptist but Jesus came.
Jesus died, raised and ascended but the Church was born.
The Church throughout the generations have seasons where it seems they lose ground but the Spirit comes again and breathes new life as He did on day one and the Church rises again.
It’s a kingdom principle.
The enemy will never stop the kingdom advancing.
Remove a worker and more will be raised up. God’s Kingdom is continuous.
Imagine how the King Herod’s of this world feel when they realise this?!
Nothing can stop the Kingdom of God.
