Mark Tan submitted the following article on Agora which we feel is a call to prayer for Singapore. May the LORD grant all intercessors wisdom and discernment on how to pray.
Article by Mark Tan
Dear brothers and sisters,
I am writing here in hope of getting this message out fast and quick to as many Christians there are in Singapore.
This is very urgent because I think our nation will soon be plunge into the greatest darkness that we have yet experienced and this is a time that we must get together and fight this spiritual battle for the life and soul of Singapore.
You must have seen how all our newspapers have come together to support homosexual lifestyles. How can this possibly happen? I believe what happened was not natural but that Satan has come all out against us, especially after we have been weakened by all the SARS situation and the econimic downturn.
My name is Mark Tan. I was once a homosexual. However, God gave me new life and hope during a deliverance service about two months ago. I felt renewed. I repented of my sin. I could feel the demon of homosexuality leave me when I claimed Jesus as my Lord and Saviour! Halleluyah!
But I must tell you my story so that you will believe.
When I was a homosexual, I was very keen in spiritual matters. However, I was made to believe that the Church has no more relevance by my homosexual friends. I joined in a group of people who are gay pagans.
This group that I belonged to meets in a house at Holland Village about once a month for potluck and pagan services. It is lead by an expatriate man called "G.H.". Most of the services we attended consists of pagan prayers. We would gather around in a circle around a pentagon with candles burning, incense burning, bowls of water to symbolise the elements of the earth. We will then call on various gods and goddesses from all the different religions (except Christianity) and then we will pray for various things such as world peace.
However, when we celebrated the solstice last year (around Christmas) "G.H." told us that we must now concentrate our prayers on political leaders so that we can have gay rights. He also said that all the gay and non-gay pagan groups will be doing the same thing every month from the beginning of this year. There are about 12 gay covens in Singapore.
I went to one this year at around February and that was the last coven meeting that I attended. During this meeting, different gods and goddesses were invoked to give wisdom and understanding to our political leaders. They were asked to fill them with their spirits and guide them in their decisions. At the end of the meetings, we joined hands and were asked to generate auras of lovingkindness then imagine this aura surrounding our government leaders.
I now understand all these and see what these are. We were actually asking evil spirits to possess our country!
Please. I beg you. Take this seriously. Send this message to all your friends and pastors. Make sure everybody is informed. This is a critical time in our life before God judges and punishes us for our filth!
