CRUMB 0015 – WE HAVE AN ENEMY NOT TO BE IGNORED

“We have an arch enemy, called Satan, the devil, that is not to be ignored.

The Bible warns us by ascribing him to be the ‘god of this world’, trying to hide the truth of the Gospel by blinding the minds of people [2 Corinthians 4:3-4].

So he distorts it. He knows that the “truth of the gospel” saves us from going to hell.

Hell was created for the devil and his fallen angels, never for man.

Satan was the architect behind the crucifixion of Christ Jesus. He thought he had the victory, when he successfully got the Son of God to die that horrible death on the cross.

The Devil Had No Clue

The devil had no clue that Jesus would rise from the dead, ‘never’ to die again. He had no clue that this death, burial and resurrection would save a lost humanity. Little did he know, that was “God’s Master Plan” from the ages, which was hidden and “kept secret since the world began” [Romans 16:25].

Even the disciples closest to Jesus, while He was here on earth did not know it. [Luke 18:31-34, 9:44-45 & John 20:9]

If the devil had known this, he would have made sure that Christ Jesus did not go to the cross. The Bible tells us that, “had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory.” [1 Corinthians 2:8]

For if Jesus had not gone to the cross to die, get buried and rise again, then our faith in God, the Gospel message, the Bible and everything would be in vain.

So absolutely, God in His incredible Wisdom, ‘had’ to keep this hidden and secret, till revealed to Paul the apostle of the Gentiles in [1 Corinthians 15:1-4].

Outsmarted By GOD

So now the devil, called Satan, outsmarted by God, knows his days are numbered.

He knows his time is short and getting shorter with each passing day.

There is no ‘good news’ for him. There is no redemptive gospel for him. Jesus died only for the human race.

He knows that Jesus Christ could come at any moment to take his saved ones away with him. He is now working overtime to make sure you don’t get to hear the real truth of the Gospel, so that he can take you to ‘his’ hell with him.

Satan is unleashing every weapon he has in his armoury today, in a bid to stop the plan of God, to stop Jesus Christ from returning again.

He has no problem with men being deeply religious and philosophical. He knows very well that all the religions of the world put together, are powerless to save men.  So he is a great promoter of religion and philosophy. He knows that Jesus Christ is the “only way”.

The devil is real, he absolutely hates God and God’s creation, which is, you and me. And his ‘hatred’ for God and men is perfect. Satan operates very subtly through men he can cleverly trap, to do his bidding.

The Bible warns us that he can transform himself into an “angel of light” [2 Corinthians 11:14-15]. The ONLY way, we can be wiser than him, is by getting to know the real TRUTH of God’s Word, which is the Scriptures.

Making Sure What We Believe

We must make sure what we believe and know without any shadow of doubt, why we believe in what we believe.

All kinds of new fangled theories are coming out these days as deception is rampantly on the rise.

We need to be careful that we don’t get swallowed up, by every wind of doctrine!”

Studying the Scriptures is the key to know what the Bible tells us about life, about meaning, about sacredness, about our eternal destiny.

We must know what God teaches us, about the condition of human beings, even at the end of life.

The words of Jesus Christ, “Search the Scriptures” [John 5:39] and the great apostle Paul were, ”What saith the Scriptures?” [Romans 4:3 & 11:2].

“To keep our eyes on God is to keep our eyes on Scripture.”

About Joshua David Mukerji

A life filled with depravity, a conscience hardened and seared as with a hot iron, with eyes filled with tears on a road leading to nowhere, with an amputated spirit, devoid of any meaningful hope or purpose, moving on like a ship on a tumultuous sea without a sail, the author, from out of nowhere, has an encounter with a Living God that would radically change his life. With an infallible Hope imputed into his spirit, he moves on. Not claiming to have got there yet, but one thing he does: forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, he presses on with this Hope that will never fail. If you feel you somehow or in some way connect with any part of this, stick around. There are messages of True and Living Hope coming your way. You ‘will’ get there yet!!!
