One of the best videos I’ve seen on Christianity and Satan…it gets better as you listen; the subtleties are THERE, particularly for those of us who know church life. He goes to the Elders’ meetings “every Tuesday night,” cracked me up. And the line about Disney….so right. Excellent observations by THE DEVIL 🙂
Also, at Bible Study’s last day for the summer this week, women got up to talk about having Stage 4 lung cancer, and having lost a mother 24 hours ago, and getting lost in 20 degrees in the mountains and not getting picked up till the next day, etc etc…and how the Bible verses they’d learned and the prayers of our core groups lifted them up and made all these things more tolerable. The lady with lung cancer now has not cancer but another lung situation “I get ONE more Year!” so happily, she said, eyes shining with happiness and calm. The woman who lost her mother praised God for the comfort her mother had during her struggle with cancer, and how peacefully she passed, the hiker said her brother said, for the first time, how much he realized he loved her when they thought she might be gone, and her mother and she have become much closer since that ordeal.
It came to my mind, so strongly, how satan’s attempts to crush us get twisted around by Christians to praise God, rest in His comfort, INSPIRE OTHERS…quite unlike what the prince of darkness intends. I think that’s an important and powerful observation and I think it’s only due to what the Holy Spirit does in our lives to build faith, strengthen us, and alleviate fears. I love how we trip up evil plans!
“These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.” Revelation 17:14
“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.” Romans 16:20
Inspire someone with a story where you knew you’d overcome EVIL…..The greatest witness is changed lives.
Have a wonderful Sunday! (I highly recommend your church shows this either in a sermon, which ours did, or at any church meeting….it was well appreciated, I assure you)
