Recently, I have been hearing a lot about the political situation in Thailand. I just wanted to make you guys aware of what is going on. There have been huge fights and protests happening in Bangkok. There are two groups the red shirts and the yellow shirts. The yellow shirts are in favor of the current prime minister and the red shirts are in support of a past prime minister Thaksin. Thaksin was taken out of office by a past military coup from a few years ago. The red shirts are mostly people from the country areas and the yellow shirts are from Bangkok and other large cities. So recently, the red shirts have been protesting for the return of Thaksin. These protests are huge 50,000 to 60,000 people converging on Bangkok by from all over Thailand.
The protests are seen as mainly peaceful, but there is a deep underline spiritual battle happening during these protests. Thailand is a very spiritual place and even politics are effected. During one of the protests the red shirts burned down the "Spirit house" that is in front of the main government building in Bangkok. This is a big deal because the Thais believe all the spirits that control that building live in that "spirit house". Almost everyone has a Spirit house in front of their home and/or business. Here is an example: This is where the spirits live and they must be kept happy so that things on their property go well. I believe there is real power in these spirits and if they are upset these spirits will hurt the Thai people, that is if they do not have the power of Jesus Christ to overcome these spirits.
SO that was a shocking development within itself. The next part of their protest was even more deeply shocking and spiritual. The thousands and thousands of red shirts decided to draw their own blood and pour it out in front of the government steps. Blood is such a significantly powerful in many religions especially in Christianity. To think of the sacrifices throughout the old testament and today being Good Friday. Christ's blood was poured out saved the souls of many!!!
Here is a picture of the Thai blood being collected and poured out.
The blood of the Thais has some power to...they poured out a deeply demonic occultic power to try to control the Thai government.
Pray against this power and the very real spiritual warfare in Thailand.
Pray for the Thai Church that they would separate themselves from any left over demonic worship that might be still effecting their lives.
Pray for the missionaries that they will be able to preach about the power in the Blood of Christ and in CHRIST ALONE!!!
