Brother Torben in The Hornet's Nest

This brother is under attack more or less constantly.  Why?  Because he is doing what the Bible tells us to do and when anyone (not just brother Torben) does these things (proclaim the full good news:  baptism, cast out demons, heal the sick, repentence etc) it hurts the enemy where it counts.  Thats right, it hurts the enemy bad.  The enemy is fine with people playing church all their life (that should tell us something) but he is not okay with doing exactly what the Lord spells out for us to do in the Bible.

To add to the fact that brother Torben is bringing the hurt to the enemy, he is doing it in a place (Chicago) that is a demonic stronghold.  When I heard he was headed to Chicago and Minneapolis I thought "wow the Lord is going right in to kick the hornets nest."  Their Minneapolis trip was cancelled and so far the enemy has thrown the kitchen sink at brother Torben.  He needs a miracle and this nobody who writes to you believes he will get one.  Why?  Torben was sent, he didn't just decide to cross America because it was the fun thing to do.  We are all foot soldiers in our Lord's army.  He is the General, we are the grunts.  He gives the orders, we salute and move out on those orders.  We have to understand this war goes all the way to the top.  It is Almighty God against Satan.  The only way possible brother Torben could not succeed is if he decided to throw his hands up in the air and give up.  This is not his fight, it is the Lord's fight.  If he gets run out of town while trying to do the Lord's will it would only be because thats what the Lord wanted. 

Our job is to do what we are told to do, period.  If the enemy throws the kitchen sink at us and is able to stop us, well, that is in the Lord's hands:

1 Thess 2:17But, brothers and sisters, when we were orphaned by being separated from you for a short time (in person, not in thought), out of our intense longing we made every effort to see you. 18For we wanted to come to you—certainly I, Paul, did, again and again—but Satan blocked our way. 19For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you? 20Indeed, you are our glory and joy.

This episode is not over so please pass this request along to prayer warriors you know to support brother Torben in fasting and prayers  that he may be able to do what the Lord sent him to do.

Glory to God

grace and peace
