Reaching the Arab World for Christ

From an organisation working in the Arab world, our visiting speaker shared with us the work among the Muslim community, both in Northern Ireland and abroad. 

He reminded us of the great privilege of hearing the Gospel at almost every turn, with so many Bible believing churches in this land. He then turned our attention to the Arab world, where so few have heard the glorious news of Christ Jesus and His sacrifice for the sins of many.

But God is at work. Many are fleeing from their towns and cities to find refuge in other lands - countries in which the Lord has a presence. Believers in Jesus Christ are faithfully proclaiming the Gospel and Arab men and women are coming to put their trust in Him.

There is a rise in Atheism, among the Islamic community, with families turning their backs on the Muslim faith. This is a great opportunity for the work of God. We were told of a website which reports that 60,000 individuals in the Arab world have downloaded the complete Bible for personal reading. The same website has had over 3,000 stories of Muslim people coming to know Christ. God is at work!

Speaking of the Lord Jesus Christ to normal Muslim people is, in many ways, easier than reaching the native population of Northern Ireland. Muslim people accept that Jesus Christ lived. They believe that He was born of a virgin, He lived a perfect life and He performed miracles. Sadly, however, they do not believe that He is the Son of God, nor do they accept that He died on the cross for the sins of the world.

Muslim people are approachable. Let's not allow media perception to dictate whether or not we speak to them. Muslims need the Lord, and Christ has given us a responsibility to share the Gospel of Christ with the unsaved.

The Lord is bringing Muslim people to us. In our work and in school, we will be faced with a growing number of opportunities to speak with people from the Arab world. Let's show the love of God with them and share how Christ has transformed us. Share with them the Word of God, and pray that they too will come to know Him and obtain eternal life in Him.

Luke Barker - Feasting on the Word (Part I)

Luke Barker joined us for the first of our two-part series on 'Feasting on the Word'. Beginning at Hebrews 4:12, Luke impressed upon the young people the authority of Scripture, reminding them that preachers, teachers, commentaries and books can all be flawed, but the truth of God's Word never fails.

The Bible is never out-of-date. The truths contained within its pages apply as much today as they ever did. As we read in Isaiah 40:8, "the grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever"Yet while the truth of God is secure, it can be twisted and manipulated by those with malicious intent. When Scripture is made complex, it is often a sign that we are being deceived by an argument of man. Be wise, beware, and ensure that you are comparing what you are being told with what Scripture truly teaches.

We have to also be wise about the translation we use. Luke gave an example of the Ethiopian eunuch, who asked Philip what hindered him to be baptised. Philip's answer "if thou believest thou mayest" makes it clear that there is a criteria to being baptised. Sadly, in some versions/translations of the Bible, this criteria is removed.

Take the Bible literally. When God describes a creation which occurred over 6 days, then it literally happened in 6 days. Yes, Scripture sometimes uses symbols to describe something that is happening, or will happen. However, when it does this, the verses around it will often make it clear that symbols are being used. In a similar way, the Bible also becomes its own dictionary, with the context fully explaining what the complicated word or phrase actually means.

As we come to study God's word we should pray for help. He has given us the Holy Spirit, if we are saved, to guide us into all truth and show us hidden depths from His word. James 1:5 reminds us that the wisdom of God is freely given to those who ask.

If reading God's Word could be considered as eating, the Bible must then be thought of as a complete meal. Take the entirety of Scripture, beginning with the first page right through to the last. Establish the habit of reading Scripture daily, a small portion at a time, from Genesis to Revelation. Only then will we become grounded in the Bible, and become strong and established in both word and doctrine.

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 1:1-3

Standing Out from Day One (2 Timothy 3)

An excellent crowd joined us, many for the very first time, for our opening meeting of this new season. We also had the pleasure of welcoming Danny Roberts, no stranger to us, who appropriately considered the need to stand out for Christ from day one.

He began by considering the general opposition of society to Christians. The vast majority of people with whom we share our school, university and workplaces with are not sympathetic to the truth contained in the Bible. So how can we, as Christians, continue to stand strong and speak out for Christ in the environment in which He has placed us?

It won't be easy. As we know from 2 Timothy chapter 3, the days that we live in are inherently evil. Christians, therefore, cannot expect to get an easy ride from those who do not believe. In school particularly, the expectation to conform, to 'fit-in', is very high. Yet choosing, as many do, not to take a stand at the first opportunity we open ourselves up to many and mighty temptations.

We will face trials. We are different. God, in saving us from the punishment of sin, has made us different, and so we know that we will be targeted by some. But this is where we must call upon the weapons that God has given us. We must pray, bringing the challenges of each day to Him and seeking His strength and guidance to face them. Constant communication with God, through Christ, will strengthen our relationship with Him and give us the power of God upon our lives.

It is important to remember, however, that we are weak in ourselves. Yes, with God's strength we can do mighty things, but how often do we try to step out in our strength? It is then that we will fail. The great men of God failed, and we will fail. Peter, when quizzed about his relationship with Christ, profusely denied that he even knew Him. Peter failed - and he knew it! And surely that was it for Peter, his witness had been destroyed, his opportunity to serve Christ had been lost. Likewise, when we fail, it seems like any hope of us being a strong witness for the Lord has gone forever. But that just isn't the case. 

Our salvation, and subsequently our usefulness for the Lord, is not reliant on our good deeds. Not at all. It is, rather, entirely dependent on what He has already done for us. God knows our failings and has forgiven us our shortcomings. He knows we will fail Him, but He has promised to give us new and fresh strength every morning to step out once again for Him.

Peter, in denying the Lord, deserved to be seen as failure in his work for God. The Bible, however, records a very different outcome. Preaching on the Day of Pentecost, in Acts 2, Peter was given the joy of seeing thousands of individuals putting their trust in the Lord. God had a mighty plan for the man that we would have labelled a failure, and God has mighty plans for us.

As difficult as it will be, and regardless of how often we fail, we have a responsibility to stand up and live for Christ. Many of the people we share a bus, classroom or office with, will never have read a Bible. But they will read our actions. They will listen to our words and they will watch how we react in various circumstances. Yes, it is a challenge, but it is also a privilege. The God of heaven, the Creator of the universe, has given us a job to do. What a pleasure to be able to serve the King of kings!

When we think of what God has done for us, sending His only Son, Christ Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins, it is a small thing for Him to expect us to do for Him. Let us all stand strong for Christ, and show Him how much we love Him and how thankful we are for Him choosing to save us.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were an offering far too small.
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Men and Women of Faith: JOSEPH

Joining us for the first time as a speaker, Adrian Reid, a former member of the Youth Fellowship, began by recalling the wonderful blessings he experienced during his time at Listooder and encouraging the young people to commit to the meetings and to be found under the word of God and among Christian friends.

Turning us then to Romans 8, Adrian read verse 28: 'And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose'. Of all the people in Scripture, and specifically among those mentioned in Hebrews 11, Adrian believes that no-one's life relates more to this verse than the life of Joseph.

Joseph had a troubled life, particularly in his early years when he received a lot of abuse from his brothers. This abuse culminated in the selling of Joseph to slave-traders, who subsequently sold him on to Egypt as a slave. Yet even in these circumstances, Joseph, who loved the Lord, served his heavenly Master with all that he had. Working for a man called Potiphar, Joseph worked to the honour and glory of God.

In Genesis 39, we read of an event that would have a destructive effect on that working relationship, and would challenge the principle of Romans 8:28, that all things work together for good to them that love God.

Joseph's employer knew that he loved God, and the Lord subsequently blessed the house and home of Potiphar because of the Godly life of Joseph. Do our friends, family, or co-workers know that we love the Lord? Our influence, if we are truly living for our Saviour, can be a blessing and a benefit to those around us - even those that are unsaved.

In verse 7, the wife of Potiphar, set her eyes on Joseph and insisted that he sleep with her. Joseph was presented by a temptation to sin. Each of us, as Believers of Christ, will be tempted on a daily basis. The question is, how will we respond to this temptation? Joseph refused to yield. Knowing it was a sin, Joseph explained his principles and responsibilities to God. He explained that he was answerable to a higher authority.

Potiphar's wife put the temptation before Joseph on a daily basis. Temptation will come upon us again and again, yet our response must remain the same. Joseph refused to yield, even physically running away from the site of the temptation, from Potiphar's wife (verse 12) - he got himself out of the place where he was tempted. We should never be afraid to run away from the temptation of the evil one. Of course, in our sinful nature we do not have the strength to resist the sin. We must seek the strength of God, who has promised that when temptation comes, He will always provide a way of escape and give us the strength to take it.

The temptations we face will be subtle. It will seem like a minor thing at the start, but can build and build, coming upon us day after day, until it engrosses all of our thoughts. We must take the advice of the Lord Jesus Christ to be watchful, and pray, lest we enter into temptation.

The temptation will be striking. Sin will rarely seem 'ugly'. The sins of this world have an appeal, and will be desirable to us. Don't be fooled. As beautiful as the temptation may seem, and as Potiphar's wife undoubtedly was, it will bring no lasting pleasure to our lives. Rather it will destroy us. Seek the things that bring lasting joy - seek the things of God.

The temptation will be sustained. Just as with Joseph's temptation, the challenge will not end the first time you say no. The devil will come at us again and again. Seek God's help every day. Put on the armour of God (Ephesians 6) that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the evil one.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 5:8-11

What Does It Mean To Be A Disciple

Ross Greer turned us to Romans chapter 12 to consider what it means for a Christian to be a disciple. As a disciple of Jesus Christ, He should expect to be given our all. We are to be a 'living sacrifice' to God, thinking not of our own hopes, dreams and desires, but taking His desires as our own. Romans 12 exhorts the members of the church to serve the Lord. Age is of no importance, nor is overall ability. Each of us have been given gifts and talents, and it is in line with those gifts that we should serve our God. For example, if we have the gift of kindness, we should gladly show that kindness to others in the name of the Lord. If the gift of teaching, we must teach diligently in the name of the Lord.

In 1 Corinthians 6, Paul reminds the Believers of what many of them had been saved from - specifically listing many vile sins. However, in verse 11 he speaks about God has done for them and for each us who are saved. No more are we 'branded' by the sins of the past, we have been fully washed and cleansed from all sin by the blood of Christ. We have been sanctified - set apart from this world by God, for service to Him. And we have been justified, set free by a God who promises never again to remember our sin. He has given us the gift of the Holy Spirit, a new 'branding' - a permanent imprint upon our lives, the evidence that we belong to Him forever.

When we become disciples of God, we become His property. The Bible reminds us that we are 'bought with a price', purchased for God by the death of His Son on Calvary. It is therefore only right that we desire to glorify the Lord, not only with our mind and our spirit, but also with our bodies. That means controlling the sinful desires, the flesh, within us. Ross made the analogy of owning two wolves and choosing to feed one rather than the other. The wolf you choose to feed will grow to be large and strong, dominating the other one which will grow weaker and weaker. We must choose, before God, whether to 'feed' the fleshly desires of our hearts, or feed the Spirit of God within us. If we continue to feed the flesh, we allow it to grow strong and dominate our lives. If, however, we feed the Spirit, immersing ourselves in the Word of God, and seeking to do His will, the fleshly desires will grow weaker and will have less control over our lives.

Asking what we were motivated by, Ross proposed that the desire and motivation of the world can be summed up in pleasure, prosperity, power and position. Is that what drives us? As believers, we should have one motivation and that is to please God. As Romans 12 puts it, doing the will of God is our 'reasonable service' - it is the least that we owe Him for what He has done for us.

Finally, being a disciple of Christ means we must be crucified with Him to the world - our connection to this earth must die as Christ died. In saving us, He eternally separated us from this world and unto good works - unto discipleship. Although we have responsibility to live our lives in a Godly manner upon this earth, it is not our home. We must set our affection and attention of the things of God and not be distracted by the world around us. It is then that we will realise the true extent of being a disciple of Jesus Christ.

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Colossians 3:1

The Testimony of Rebecca Hutton

Rebecca shared how she had been taught the Scriptures from a very young age. She came to Christ early in life, realising that she was a sinner and needed to be saved. Understandably there was not a drastic change in her life, but as Rebecca puts it 'nothing was ever the same again'. Her name was written in the Lamb's Book of Life. Her name was forever written in heaven.

Despite continuing in the teaching she had received, Rebecca soon found herself falling short in her communion with God, failing to read the Bible as she once did. It was at this time she came across Psalm 73, where verse 2 states: 'as for me, my feet were almost gone'. This resonated with her present state, but as she read on she came to verse 23: 'Nevertheless I am continually with thee'.

This reminder was a help and a comfort to Rebecca as she sought to return to a closer relationship with the Lord. In doing so, she began to understand the great responsibility that God have given to her to live her life as a testimony for Him. Both among saved and unsaved friends, Rebecca has since endeavoured not only to live her life in accordance to God's Word, but to serve Him and actively take opportunities to proclaim the Gospel.

So, Heaven… what’s it really like?

Citing it as a subject that 'thrills his heart', Paul Foster began his study on the Heavenly Home by turning to Luke chapter 10, where we read of Christ telling his disciples to rejoice that their names were written in Heaven.

Just as a sprinter, lining up to begin a race, keeps his eye solidly on the finish line. Regardless of how the race is progressing, whether we feel weak and tired, or positive and enthusiastic, we, as Believers, must continue looking towards the finish - setting our minds, our affections and our attention on Heaven.  

So what is Heaven? Firstly, it is a physical 'place' (John 14:2). It is real. It is a place where God's presence, His holiness and His splendour are revealed without measure or limitation.

Turning to Revelation 21, Paul then asked what is it like? If, as many believe, the passage outlines a physical city, then it is a perfect cube of 1,400 miles x 1,400 miles x 1,400 miles. In terms of the ground-surface area alone, that is greater than 23 times the surface area of the United Kingdom! Now add the 1,400 miles of vertical space... it is huge.

The walls in heaven are also explained - gems and precious stones of blue, yellow, green, red and pink. They are beautiful and they are big - the thickness of 17 Volkswagen Polo cars placed end-to-end.

There are some who believe that, rather than speaking of a literal city, the portion in Revelation 21 speaks figuratively of the church - the people of God, returning to earth with Christ. If this is the case, the chapter paints a wonderful picture of sheer quantity of people, from every nation on earth, washed in the blood of Jesus Christ and clothed in the majesty and beauty of the Lamb.

Heaven is a holy place, a holy city - a place absent from sin. Every day on this earth brings a measure of sadness as we witness the lying, cheating, bitterness, anger, lust and perversion all around us. We see jealousy, selfishness, God's name not being glorified, instead dragged through the gutters. We see our own temper, envy, lust and selfish desires. But there is no sin in Heaven. What a joy, what a thrill! God will banish all existence and appearance of sin from our lives, He will wipe every tear from eyes and will give us a song of joy.

But what will we do there? Television commercials would have us believe that lie around, relaxing in the clouds on some sort of never ending lunch-break. Yet in Scripture we read that Heaven is a place of activity. There will be the continual song of praise to the Lord, a multitude from every nation, standing before the throne of God - 'great and marvellous are thy works!'. Singing, not with the voice we have now, but with a perfect voice. Not praising the God we have not seen, but standing face-to-face with the one who has saved us by His blood, upheld us through the trials of life and comforted us with His infinite love. How we will sing!

We will sing, but we will also serve. Just like the good servants in the Bible, who received the 'well done' of God and told to enter into 'the joy of the Lord' - we will have fullness of joy in Heaven as we serve the Master forever.

And we will rest. From the beginning of time, God gave one day in seven to rest our bodies from the weariness of the week. This day was given as a token of what was to come - perfect rest in Christ. In Heaven we will enjoy the glorious benefits of rest forever. We will bask in the glory of His perfect holiness, and enjoy the restoration it brings.

Paul closed by reminding the young people that, just as Heaven is a real place and one to be sought for, so Hell is also very real. Not one of us knows what a day may bring forth, and so we must turn to Christ for salvation to secure our citizenship in the heavenly city. 

You only get to run one race. Where is your finish line?

The Armour of God: Live Demo

With the assistance of our own Ross Greer, kitted out head-to-toe in full Roman armour, Luke Barker introduced the topic by explaining the need for Christians to be equipped with the resources that God offers. One of those is the Armour of God.

Luke began by asking the question: who is our enemy? The world is our enemy, distracting us from focusing our attention on God with the bright lights and entertainment it offers. We are our own enemy: our inner, sinful desires are not toward God, and so need to be overcome. The devil is our enemy: as the enemy of God, the devil will try to bring down anyone who sets out to live for Christ.

The passage in Ephesians 6, which in detail cover the six parts of the armour of God (demonstrated throughout by Ross), also stresses the importance of watching (being constantly aware of the enemy) and praying (being in constant communication with God).

There are only two sides which we can be on, and that is either the Army of God or the Army of Satan. All those who have placed their trust in Christ for Salvation are on the side of God. All those who have not, regardless of how good-living, religious or open they may be, are on the side of Satan.

Luke proposed that those who are on the side of Satan have 'armour' also. Instead of the Helmet of Salvation, it the Helmet of False Hope. The Arm of Flesh instead of the Sword of the Spirit. A Breastplate of Selfrighteousness, not Righteousness. The Belt of Truth is replaced with False Teaching. They wave around a Shield of Unbelief and walk in the Shoes of a False Message. As Christians, an understanding of this can be a very useful tool when trying to reach the lost for Christ. 

So, to the armour...

THE BELT OF TRUTH
The belt held everything together and avoided everything else from going out of control. It was to keep the shame and decency of the soldier intact. In the same way a Christian requires the truth of God to keep their integrity and maintain their testimony. The truth comes from the Word of God, and just as a solider must diligently fasten the belt, so a believer must diligently read the word of God.

THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
The top part of the body of a Roman soldier was protected, front and back, by the breastplate. His vital organs were protected from the attack of the enemy. Our vital organs, in the spiritual sense, the functions by which we have life, are protected by righteousness. The righteousness of Christ has been imputed to every believer, covering the sinful heart of man with the precious protecting blood of Christ.

FEET SHOD WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE
The sandals of a soldier were not a fashion accessory, but a practical, always-ready, resource to protect their feet from the rough footing of the journey. If wet, they would dry off quickly. If dirty, cleaned without hassle. They were always ready. In a similar way we, as Christians, must be always ready with the message of the Gospel and be prepared to answer questions regarding our faith.

THE SHIELD OF FAITH
The shield added further protection to the body of the soldier, in particular protecting him from the 'darts' or arrows of the enemy. Although it is important to be aware that the devil will relentlessly attack us, we have no need to fear. The faith that God has given, that free gift, cannot be breached by the firey darts of the evil one.

THE HELMET OF SALVATION
A natural protection for the head, ultimately protecting the brain from injury. So the helmet of salvation protects the wisdom, knowledge and discernment that God has given to us. In Ephesians 6, the helmet is described as the hope of Salvation. The hope is an assurance of the knowledge that we are saved. It is the assurance that we belong to God, and no-one can take that away from us.

THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
The Roman sword was shorter than we may have imagines, allowing for quick and close combat. The battle against the enemies of God is a very real one and can, at times, feel very close. The sword of the spirit, the Word of God, is not for defense, but for attack. It should be our tool of choice when we feel the presence of evil in our lives. We must therefore know it, learn it, and be ready to fight back with it. In the same way, the Roman solider stepped forward with his sword always by his side - ready.

--------------------------------------------------

Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please Him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

2 Timothy 2:3-4

Sharing the Gospel with the World

Samuel Adams returned to Listooder to provide the young people with an update on the work of Revival Movement Association, formerly Every Home Crusade. With 5 tonnes of literature produced daily, just outside Kinallen in Northern Ireland, Revival Movement distributes Gospel literature across the world. 

Distributing the literature to churches and Gospel workers entirely free of charge, the phenomenal output of the work could be summed up in the following statistics:

1,371 tonnes used last year
75 million pieces of literature
8.2 million copies of St. John's Gospel
170 countries
95 languages

This week alone, shipments of literature were sent to Uganda, Nigeria, Belgium, Cameroon, Guyana, Sierra-Leone, Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Samuel often travels himself to some of the countries to meet with the local workers and establish their literature needs. In a recent trip to the Philippines, Samuel visited schools, in conjunction with a Child Evangelism Fellowship worker in the area, and distributed Gospel litertaure and some New Testaments to the children.

As a largely Roman Catholic country, the Philippines can be a difficult region to 'evangelise' among the men and women. However, there have been many examples of churches which have been setup to reach these folks, whose curiosity was sparked when their children received literature and teaching from the Word of God.

During the same trip, Samuel also had the opportunity to meet with many local pastors, some having travelled over 5 hours to receive the literature and Scripture material that Samuel had brought with him. Later on, they gained access to a prison where guards, prisoners and visitors received Gospel content.

Nigeria, a country of 200 million people, was the destination of a further trip for Samuel in recent months, during which he attended a conference of 40,000 pastors. The conference may present an opportunity for Revival Movement Association to assist these pastors in the future. The need is great, and there is a strong desire among the evangelical church leaders for sound, Biblical literature.

Please pray for the work of Revival Movement Association as they seek to meet the needs of Christian workers across the world. In many countries, there is a hunger for God's Word. Do we have a hunger for the Word of God? Do we have a hunger for God Himself? Pray that God would give you a desire for Him, and that He would use you, in some small way, to help meet the needs of any who are seeking for Him.

Decrypting Cyber-Bullying

In an ever-changing world of technological advancements, young people are rarely ever 'offline'. The online world is exciting, engaging, educational and full of opportunities to connect with others - but it is a world that is fraught with danger. Colin Tinsley joins us at Listooder to raise awareness of Cyber-Bullying, looking specifically at what we can learn from the Scriptures.

Turning to Psalm 36, Colin began by looking at the destructive influence of bullying, both in-person and online. Bullying destroys the lives of many people, both young and old. It is a demonstration of the grip the devil has on this world, and of the evil forces at work in the lives of those in darkness. Many young people, in despair and without hope, have taken their own lives as a result of bullying.

But what does the Bible have to say about the matter? Many of the great characters of Scripture were subjected to bullying. David on the run from King Saul, Joseph sold into slavery by his own brothers, Paul who was bruised and beaten on many occasions for the sake of the Lord. Christians are not immune to bullying. It is a personal attack from the devil, acted out in the lives of our peers, and others around us. As we read in Psalm 36:1, there is no fear of God in their eyes. They are in darkness, and believe that they are free to treat others how they choose.

The cyber-bully 'flattereth himself in his own eyes'. They are so puffed up with themselves, fed by the lies of the devil, that they fail to see or consider the feelings of others and consequences of their actions.

Proverbs chapter 6 reminds us of God's hatred for the acts of cyber-bullies. A lying tongue, a proud look, a heart devising wicked imaginations, a false witness and feet that are swift to run to mischief. Are not these the traits of a bully? God despises these things, and God despises the spiteful actions of those seeking to disrupt and destroy the lives of others. As believers, it is important to be aware of these attributes. They are the product of the devil. Do we take care not to demonstrate these traits, and succumb to the evil communications of others? Stop and think about the words we use, the messages we send, the comments we leave. Be sober, be vigilant and beware.

Just as with all sin, God despises bullying. Yet God loves the bully. Even those who have seemingly given into the wiles of Satan can be won for Christ. Pray for them, take any opportunities to speak for Christ and believe the words of 1 John 4:4, which reminds us: 'greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world'. God has power over all, and God is on our side.

If you are struggling with bullying yourself, bring it to the Lord. Speak to others about it, and seek out Christian help. The Lord understands. Read about how God intervened in the lives of those in the Bible who also suffered. The same God, the same Lord, Jesus Christ, will never change. He will always care for His own, and He does care. Bring it to Him, and let Him bring comfort, support and resolution.
