Demonic Attack: Hundreds of Bibles Burned Outside Church

This past Resurrection Sunday saw no shortage of attacks from Satan targeting the victory Jesus claimed over sin and death.

From nearly every leader in the Biden administration celebrating “Transgender Day of Visibility” to protests in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, spiritual warfare was at the forefront of this year’s Easter celebration.

Few were as blatant and as bold as what Pastor Greg Locke of Global Vision Bible Church woke up to on Sunday morning.

Reporting his findings in a Facebook post, Locke shared that his church’s security cameras had captured a man targeting his church and setting hundreds of Bibles ablaze:

“This morning at 6:00AM our security cameras caught a man dropping off a trailer in the middle of the intersection and blocking the road into our church. He then got out and set fire to an entire trailer full of Bibles right in front of our church.”

These attacks on God in America and around the world have become more and more blatant, thanks in part to leadership that does not hold those committing such acts accountable.

Thankfully, Locke reported that there was someone waiting at the church for the service to start who had driven a considerable distance, and thanks to her presence, police were notified quickly of the hate crime:

“There was a lady that had driven through the night to get to our church and she was in the parking lot and was able to get the police officers here quickly, but it was quite the scene to wake up to on my first morning back from Israel.”

The Wilson County Sheriff’s office reported that they believe the trailer full of Bibles was “intentionally set on fire.”

“To uphold the integrity of the ongoing investigation, other specific details cannot be provided at this time. However, we assure the community that further updates will be shared at the appropriate juncture,” the department said in a statement. “We appreciate the cooperation and understanding of the community during this period. The safety and security of our residents remain our utmost priority.”

But this is not the time for Christians to shy away from the spiritual attacks targeting them in America. No. This is the time to stand up firmly on the Word of God and resist the devil and his minions so that they may flee from us.

A Christian’s fight is with the “principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Eph. 6:12), and it is past time we take up the full armor of God and take the fight to the devil.

Join with one another in prayer, fasting and sharing of the gospel message. It is clear Satan does not want the knowledge of Jesus’ victory over the grave to get out, so we must shout it out to the masses even louder.{eoa}
