This title of this entry is the very reason that one should understand that if you follow the prosperity gospel or philosophy, that you are wrong in doing so; that if you say you are walking the path to God, but do not have any trials while walking the Path that you are not threatening Satan in any way with your spiritual journey, and that you are not refining yourself for God’s Kingdom.
As we look at the lives of the many saints and prophets that walked before us, they lived earthly lives that were quite the contrary to what would be defined as “rich” in nature, by earthly parameters. In fact, Jesus Christ, Himself, was persecuted on this earth, since the time of His Conception, till His Last Breath on this Earth. If we look at Moses though being brought up in the royal courts of Egypt, in order to follow God’s Call for Him, He had to give up all earthly riches to follow it. God will call the earthly social outcasts to do His Work, as that we had seen in Noah and Mary Magdalene. He will call both the intellectual and those that lost their way while walking on this earth to His Kingdom, as that seen in the lives of St. Paul who persecuted Christians, and St. Luke who was a Physician. He would even take Mother Mary as a child servant of His, to bring on to this earth the Savior of the World, Jesus Christ Himself; where for being pregnant before marriage could have subjected her to be stoned to death.
Satan’s Final War Plan is against the Holy Remnant of this generation. He will try to distract humanity off of the path of God’s Eternal Kingdom, by manipulating the earthly circumstance of God’s Holy Remnant, just like He did with the many people that walked before us. This is why God states that His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them. If we have truly understood this, then we would understand, how temporary the ways of this world are, and see them with the same worthless value as God does. We are to value God’s Creations, because they come from God, not because of what they provide for us. However, evil wants you to become so dependent on them, so that you will begin to define yourself by earthly means and parameters, so that you will forget the value and worth God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) has for you. He had so much value for Humanity that He sent His Son, to walk amongst us, so that He can understand what we go through, and to become the Sacrificial Lamb, who shed His Blood to give Humanity the chance to reconnect back to the Creator, and provide protection through His Blood Covering, from Evil. We are in a spiritual war, and God requires us to find our strength through Him, in order to take the stand against evil, through Him and the Blood Covering of Jesus Christ. Evil will try to throw every earthly suffering at us, in order for us to grow angry, frustrated, and apathetic towards God the Father. However, through the understanding of the promises of God, the Father, just like the Prophet Job, to the point of losing his family, all earthly riches, food, clothing, and shelter, He clung on to God’s Promises. Just like the Disciples of Jesus Christ, they all spread the Gospels of God’s Kingdom, to all the corners of the earth, to the point of being persecuted and murdered. This is why through the modern day saints, that they were recognized by their God’s inspired souls, but appeared to be the poorest and lonelinest, in the earthly sense, but in their souls, they felt as if they were the richest.
Satan wants to keep hurling his attacks against God’s Holy Remnant, in order to get the fight out o them, to fight against him, spiritually. It is only through the Blood Covering of Jesus Christ, and the strength of God, the Father and the Holy Spirit that we can defeat Satan and his demons. God, takes on our enemies as His Own. He takes on our sins and struggles, as His Own. Did not Jesus Christ show us this, as he walked on this earth? God’s Remnant is what Satan hates, envies, and reviles. Because they remind him and his demons, of what they lost; of what they can never have again….and that is to stand in the very presence of God, the Father of Creation. He was defeated on the Cross, through Jesus Christ, His Son; and those that have found the true meaning of what Jesus Christ did at the Cross, will have defeated him and his demons once again…over and over again.
We must be vigilant through spending time in the Holy Scriptures, and spending time in prayer with God, the Father. A praying member of the Holy Remnant, is the most dangerous thing to Satan and his demons, because they are tapping into the direct connection that God, the Father of Creation, has with them. Such people are CHOOSING to defy the trials, temptations, and the deception of Satan and his demons, through the strength through which Jesus Christ provided by shedding His Blood on the Cross at Calvary.
So Brothers and Sisters, keep marching on. Keep steadfast in prayer and in the Holy Scriptures. Pray for not only for yourself, but also for all those in your life. Satan hates it when you do not act selfish, and act selfless because that is one of the things that got him kicked out by God, the Father, from His Kingdom. Love unconditionally, rather than conditionally. And forgive, because we are commanded to do so, not because it helps you to heal. See how Satan tries to twist God’s Words? We are to forgive because we are to love unconditionally; not to help heal ourselves. This selfless act, can become selfish….so be weary of worldly interpretations of Holy Scriptures. Pick up of your spiritual tools, and discern the deception of evil.
