In the midst of all that is good and pure…EVIL ENTERS!!!
“And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he (dragon) was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down- that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Therefore rejoice, you heavens
and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
because he knows that his time is short.”
Revelation 12: 7-9, 12
We are not alone! The story we are in is not as safe as we think it is! The villian has arrived! We need to be more aware of the unseen! It is dangerous!
WATCH OUT!!! We have an evil angel lurking after us!
He was at God’s right hand, an anointed guardian cherub who “was blameless in his ways until wickedness was found in him!” (Ezekiel 28: 15)
He wanted it ALL! (and still does!)
He wants to BE God!
He wants everything to be about him!! (sound familiar?)
He was thrown out of heaven and is “filled with fury”!
He knows he is on a fixed time limit!
He wants to take as many as possible with him into eternal damnation!!
So, WATCH OUT, he is on a mission for our soul!!
Are you SCARED? You should be!!
Do you feel HOPELESS against him?? We don’t have to be!
Because Satan, Lucifer, has already been DEFEATED!!! Alleluia!!!!!
God’s got our back! Let us be careful NOT to turn our back on Him!!!!!!!
Should we still be ALERT? ALWAYS!!!!
Should we BE PREPARED? We better be!
Our Heavenly Father gives us all the tools- Eph.6: 13-18, Putting on the full Armor of God!
Our Savior, we come to You in prayer, not only because we love being in Your Presence, but also because being in communion with You gives us STRENGTH against the evil one!!
We are bombarded by the ways of the world, the way they are so enticing and the way they sneak into our everyday lives that we can easily forget Your Ways and how much better they are for us!
