Remember the video that, for about a week, was all over the internet? People were proclaiming, “Share this video! Let’s bring Kony down!” (And if you don’t know about the KONY2012 video, hop over to Google and do a quick search. I’ll be here when you get back.)
Well people, all the facebook sharing in the world didn’t do much. Sure, people are now informed. Now they know about Joseph Kony and the LRA. And…now what? He’s still out there, hiding in the jungle, bringing terror to Africans.Personally, I’m still interested in this issue because Kony has been active in the area where I will be moving. It’s a bit more real than a facebook video to me. I really, really, want something to be done about Kony, and I’m not the only one.
I have an idea. Normal people like you and I can bring Kony down. If you are a Christian, you have the incredible power of the Holy Spirit dwelling within you. And the LORD has much more power than facebook, or KONY, or the U.S. Special Forces.
In a 2006 interview with the BBC, Kony said, “I don’t know the number [of spirits] but they speak to me. They load through me. They will tell us what is going to happen. They say ‘you, Mr. Joseph, tell your people that the enemy is planning to come and attack’.”
Does this raise a red flag to anyone else out there? Ephesians 6:12 says, ” For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” We just need to adjust our battle strategy, that’s all.
So here’s my idea: share the video. Share this blog. Share whatever info you have about Kony. But after you do (and before and during, too), pray against the evil spirits that dwell in Joseph Kony. Make it a regular topic in your prayer time that Satan will be debilitated and that Kony will be captured.
We can do this! My prayer is that Kony is captured and the LRA is disbanded before summer is over. Let’s all pray to that end.
