Again, I agree with you whole heartedly. In fact, I believe it is later than most people think. The stuff that is out there today being passed off as Christianity has really concerned me lately.
Having just been brought back into the arms of faith,after a long hard battle,with despair,bitternes at the world,and myself (the last 9 years have not been easy ones ),but finding grace,and love, in a pit of despair,can be a healing process.
I thankyou for all those who do sincerely pray to Jesus,and trust that His Holy Spirit is powerful in its gentleness,as well as strength.
There have always been very deceiving, manipulative, powers that be that wish to take away the power of Jesus over the human soul.....before the first testament was even written.
I was once told,that the reason Lucifer ,and the others that followed him ,were cast out of heaven,was the following.
Lucifer would not bow down to God in the form of JESUS...and thought that because they were angels,they were superior to what they considered a "human" form of God...Jesus being one of the 3 figureheads in God ..the father..God..the son...God..the holy spirit.
Since that day..the WAR has been on so to speak....for both the destruction of mankind,and the salvation of mankind.
Ok..Imma gonna shuddup now.....But I would say..there are definate clear lines being drawn,and prayer is important,sincere prayer.
Lucifer is the prince of thieves, the great deceiver.
Does that mean a christian should fear him?
No..Jesus Has the power to fight evil with the love and grace he extends to us everyday....no matter how far down you are in the"pits" of a sinful life.
I apoligize if I sound too Christian, but quite frankly feel I shouldn't have to apologize for it at all...just grateful that I know which "crown" paid the price for me.
and tired of having to apologize for that belief, in the outside world.
