BEWARE, OR SATAN WILL WIN . . . . . . . . . .
Many people scoff at the "End Times" they hear about. Granted, there are false teachers and preachers who have taught over the centuries that the world "will end at this time, or end during the year such and such". We've heard it all it seems, and we still hear about it in the wake of so-called 2012 being "The End of the World". The truth is that only God knows when the world will end, not human beings, not even the angels nor Christ himself.
What is sad, is that people are falling for it. They don't see the subtle lies which are being told because Satan is an expert at deception. In fact, he gets first prize for it. No human being can trump Satan's deviousness, cruelty, intelligence and power no matter how hard they try. They may come close, but they'll never be the number one Father of Lies and the Champion of all Deceivers. Why? The answer is simple. Lucifer was once one of God's "right hand men", a high ranking lieutenant so to speak. He was beautiful looking, he was extremely intelligent, and ranked amongst God's most powerful angels. Angels are direct servants of God and are all above people. They are faster, more intelligent, and more powerful than humans, and they are already in Heaven serving God around his throne. Is it any wonder these angels are very exceptional?? What is really neat, is that those good angels in Heaven are often sent to help us. That's how much God loves us. He wants to give us a hand when we need it, and sometimes angels are sent to do that as well as people. It's his chosen means. But a fallen angel who goes rogue and brings followers down with him who hate God and hate the entire world and spreads that hate for generations to come, is very dangerous to us and the world.
And, none have come close to the depths that Satan has stooped. He made the mistake that many people have made today. He wanted more power, control over human beings, the entire world, and anything else he could have power over, just like the people today who worship money and possessions. They are arrogant, greedy, conceited, and show contempt for those who are "beneath them" or don't travel within their elite circles. These people have taken on the very characteristics of Satan himself, and Satan is ecstatic, because he knows that unless these people change their ways, they are going to suffer with him when they die. Satan figures if he is going to reign in Hell forever with his demons, he's going to take as many people down with him as he can. And so far he's doing a great job of it. I pray for those people everyday, that one day they will see what's happening before it's too late.
For those who scoff at the devil or God himself, just look around and take in what you see. The rich are getting richer by stealing from those who don't have anything to begin with, and the poorer are getting just that, POORER because of badly needed programs being cut. Not just welfare programs, but those who help elderly and disabled residents survive and get the care they need in nursing homes and hospitals. The need is growing larger everyday while the resources are being taken away until there won't be any room left to cut down more. It could affect my job where I work. I work in a nursing home as a housekeeper. I enjoy the residents, visitors and family members. I could lose that because of the cuts. But then, many of those with means will still tell me to "find another job". Sure, WHERE? There are no jobs out there. I would be in serious trouble if I lost the job I have now.
Well, these cuts and other needed programs are the result of Satan infiltrating the government, and he will stay in the government unless people drive him out, by going back to God himself. He's the only one who can save us all. And, only if the government does an about face and takes on the characteristics of God himself, grows a conscience and has compassion for those in need, will we have a chance to succeed. Not everyone is poor because it's "their fault". Everybody's situation is different. It's the mindset of some of the rich who say they don't "want to associate with THOSE people", because they are "beneath them", as if the poor are garbage instead of human beings who could use some guidance and advice from those in high places. Boy, do they have a shock coming. Show more compassion people, and be willing to help give people ideas to get out of poverty and other horrible situations instead of shooting them down. In other words, GO BEHIND THE SCENES AND FIND OUT WHAT'S HAPPENING FIRST BEFORE JUDGMENTS ABOUT THEM ARE MADE. You'll be surprised at what you really find at the end of all that. Not all screw the system. But the poor are treated as if they ALL do, and it's not right.
The fact that "Karma" exists is very true, AND in the bible too, although in other words, and in this case a major understatement. "What goes around comes around" tells me that there are consequences for doing wrong and other people wrong, and that we'll eventually get back what we give. When we give good, we get good. If we give bad, that will come back to us ten fold. God has promised that he will punish those who are greedy, who take the food out of the mouths of those who need it, and who constantly oppress the poor. One day they will be trampled, and their money and possessions and power will mean NOTHING, that includes evil people in the government. But as in the past and now, it's Satan's goal, to turn us all into these kinds of people. Well, he's not going to get me, and never will. The fact that people do this to others makes me sick. But, it won't last, and I have to remind myself of that.
As long as people have these attitudes towards people and situations, nothing will change. Satan influences behavior as well as other external factors. As long as we let Satan rule us, we are no better than the ones we constantly point fingers at and put people down. Believe it or not, there's alot of satisfaction in helping other people, even if it's just steering them in the right direction. Even giving a little of what we have can do much for somebody in need. But as long as Satan tells us to hold onto our money and talents with a tight fist, then we won't be any good to anyone or ourselves, and THAT would be a tragedy.
BEWARE, OR SATAN WILL WIN.
