These past two years have been extremely difficult for me. I won't go into detail about my testimony but I would like to address the fact that my brother who I was really close to was murdered two years ago, a year later my grandma (who was also my best friend and biggest supporter) was diagnosed with cancer passed away two weeks ago. I feel like I'm drowning and I can't breathe. My grandma loved Jesus with all her heart, and despite her circumstances she kept her faith that God would bring her through her illness. My grandma prayed for me everyday and night, and as though now I have no one praying for me. I feel lost, and robbed of love, because my grandma and brother were two people who selflessly loved me and always put how I felt before their own feelings. As my grandma lay in hospice three weeks ago she tried to comfort me as I was crying, even though she couldn't even eat, her whole body was swollen and the cancer was overtaking her body. I recently done something really stupid, and no I'm not using my difficult life as an excuse, but it would really mean a lot to me if I could have someone (it doesn't have to two, three, four or many) just one strong believer to pray for my deliverance from sinful ways, and to be guarded and protected.
He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. - John 8:44 We have to remember that Satan is the father of lies. He is a murderer from the beginning and dwells in falsehood. He never wants the glory to go to Jesus Christ but rather twists the truth and deceives those in the Lord’s work to take glory to themselves. Satan is also the master counterfeiter who has been deceiving God’s people since the beginning. He spoke to Eve and deceived her by twisting the truth of God saying, “Has God indeed said?” Such twisting of the truth is his normal activity. Since the earliest days of the apostles, even with our Lord himself, there were deceivers and false brethren present: those who secretly come into God’s flock for personal gain and to infiltrate the liberty of the believers, betrayers, deceivers, false brethren, false prophets, and those desiring preeminence among the saints (3 John 1:9). Diotrephes and one's like him did not seek honour in the church as much as sought his own truth, his own way and seperated himself from the doctrines of the Apostles and all the other Churches. He was stubborn to think he was right and all others were wrong. A false teacher is always who is in admidst but then seeks to draw people "out of" towards themselves. Just like satan, these false teachers do not have, "the truth in them." One key to understand the working of God versus Satan in a meeting of believers is the emphasis put on the Son of God. Those that worship, honor, and glorify the Holy Spirit more than Jesus Christ are not led by the Holy Spirit to do that. The Holy Spirit will always honor Jesus Christ; thus the true working of the Spirit can be distinguished in measure. The Scripture states: “He shall not speak of himself” (John 16:13). All early Church creed statements always elevate the work of the cross and the incarnation of the Son of God. In the end times, there will be an influx of those in the Church teaching doctrines of demons to deceive even the elect of God. There will be many false teachers who claim to be of the truth but are not. The most dangerous weapon against the Church is not persecution, but deception. One key feature of these deceptions is that there is something new offered, when rather we should be seeking to believe the truth that is old and that which the Church has held to from the beginning.
Greetings all... This article shows us the common misconception we have of Satan. Does he really live in Hell? What does the Satan do? Does Satan visit the Heavens? http://rocketchristian.com/heres-1-thing-most-of-us-dont-know-about-satan/ Share with us what are your common misconception you have about the Satan! When I was younger, I thought Satan only comes out at night and devour children.
While reading a novella, "Ancient of Days: End of Perfection," about the fall of the Watchers or angels before the flood, I became interested in the famous quote of Jesus: “I see Satan already fallen like lightning from heaven...” The question that remains now is when did this occur? Before the creation of man, immediately before the flood or way after?
Well, this is concerning, not! I'm an atheist, this guy is a christian, but I think most people here will agree he's kind of crazy too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyEZpGmpVPE Note: I've met the artist this person is speaking about.
