Through the example of His Son, Jesus Christ, God has given to us the spiritual tools that are needed to resist Satan and his demons, and to discern the deception of evil. What are these?
Take a look:
The Armor of God
A true understanding of these spiritual tools comes from a life full of earthly anguish and battles of the human heart and mind, and a soul that has had the Holy Spirit planted within it. This is so important to understand because God says His Ways are not of the world’s ways, but are beyond them. Jesus Christ showed us this through His Earthly Life and Death on the Cross, as the the Son of God. As a result, the Holy Bible has told us through many Scriptures, that God’s Faithful will suffer in the earthly sense, so that we die of the ways of this world, and detach ourselves from valuing them, and finding God’s Divine Laws of Love (ways of Unconditional Love, Mercy and Nonviolence) in the process of this earthly suffering, where such ways are unknown to the world. These tools are what Jesus Christ showed us, personally, while He roamed this earth, in how they can combat evil and its ways of deception from God’s Divine Love, a love that we were meant and created to inherit.
We are to become broken vessels, in order to refine the souls within, to detach ourselves from the world and its ways. Can a soul take within it a home, care, money, clothes, toys, technology, accomplishments, reputations? NO. It is the flesh that made mankind to sin, on that day in the Garden of Eden, when the Satan as the serpant tempted Adam and Eve. God, the Father of Creation, gave us a soul and a mind to overthink and overfeel the demands of the human body. Satan and his demons can only control what it can manipulate with the human body, in order to mislead the soul that God, the Father of Creation, gave us to guard, that is within. It is these spiritual tools that Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, that keep us in tune with what God, the Father dictates through His Divine Laws of Love, which are the ways to His Eternal Kingdom. It is what keeps such a soul that is bound towards His Eternal Kingdom, inline with God and His Ways. Satan and his demons will try to make you feel like an outcast you, and make you feel all alone for not following the world and its way, because you are leaving their jurisdiction in being able to control you off of the path towards the Eternal Kingdom.
Jesus Christ, as the Son of God, suffered in His Earthly Life and Death on the Cross, for the sake of God’s Love for Humanity. He did it to show us that He understands what we go through, while we roam this earth. He did it so that He can show us how to deal with the arrows of the evil one and his helpers, and to reconnect humanity to their direct link to God, the Father of Creation, which was once there, in the initial days of Adam and Eve. God never leaves His People clueless, or in the dark of His Ways. It is through the use of these spiritual tools that Jesus Christ, His Son, left humanity, that we are able to see them. It is through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, that they will know of them, and will have a window to God’s Eternal Wisdom. It is not a physical war that we, as humanity are in, it is a spiritual one. That is what controls the physical. If humanity values and is bound to the ways of this world, a world that God, the Father of Creation says His Ways are not a part of….a world to which His Son, Jesus Christ has shown a way of life that He, Himself did not conform to….this is what results in crimes against humanity that we see today…..world hunger, war, genocide, racial bias, etc. It is only through spiritual strength…not human strength, that we can achieve this….and we need to tap into the spiritual tools that Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu, Devum) left us, in His Life Example, and Death on the Cross, at Calvary.
As seekers on the path to God’s Eternal Kingdom, we must remember that God says His Ways do not conform to the world’s ways but are beyond them. So, if our lives focus and center around valuing the things of this world, we should seriously reconsider the path we are on, if we consider ourselves and God’s Children. The Life Example that Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) showed us while He roamed this earth, should show us what should be the focus of our lives, and how we should conduct ourselves. Granted because of our sinful human nature, this kind of a life is often very difficult for our weak human nature to conform to. Because of the sin introduced by Satan in the Garden of Eden, we are prone to going against the perfection to which God, the Father of Creation (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) created for us to be. This was Satan’s gameplan from the very beginning to make God’s most prized possessions to stray off of the path to the Eternal Kingdom, and to take away as many souls as he could from the Kingdom. He knew what he could never have again, and that is to sit in the Holy Presence of God, the Father of Creation, due to his sin, as Lucifer, of pride (of knowing that at one time he was God’s highest ranked angel), vanity (of thinking that he could be equal to God), and envy (of Humanity being God’s most prized creation, and possibly outranking him in the Eternal Kingdom); it ate him up so much that he took 1/3 of the angels from the Kingdom, and transformed into Satan.
We must remember that because we are called to be God’s Children, we will always be the target of Satan and his demons. This is why we will endure extreme trials in our lives. For those who are stronger in their Walks on the Path to the Eternal Kingdom, the trials will be more severe, and even at times, as we have seen with our brothers and sisters in parts of the East, to the point of death. Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu) showed us that we should uphold God’s Divine Laws of Love at all costs, even to the point of Death. Because even this earthly body can hold us captive to the sinful human nature. Those who are the path to God, sees right through the deception of evil, which are restricted to the ways of this world. Those who have understood Christ’s Mission on the Cross, know that there is something more than the ways of this world; and that they will be the victims of Satan’s envy.
So if you are “trial free” in your life; you should consider, is your spiritual journey truly on the right path? And if you have trials, you should consider, are they occurring because of your own choices or actions….or is it because of you truly following the path of the Divine Laws of Love, of the Eternal Kingdom. True, we are to be happy and at peace, but that is even during the chaos in the world; not because of earthly things, circumstances, and ways to bring such things to us. It means to unconditionally love, not to love based on the conditions of the circumstance, or to what is convenient. It is not greatness on this earth that we should be striving for, because God says His Ways are beyond the ways of this world. Satan will use any life circumstance and person, for his purpose, to take a Child of God off of the path of meeting Him, and entering into the Eternal Kingdom; because his realm is restricted to the ways of this world. He wants to bring so much affliction on God’s Children in order for them to get just as angry at God, as he has; for them to give up the path to the Eternal Kingdom, so that they will not enter it, just like he can never do again. He wants you to feel that lack of peace and pain, of never meeting God, the Father of Creation, just like he does. He wants you to become so tired and weary of following the path to the Eternal Kingdom (because it would require for one to go against what is easy, and to travel a path not followed by many). He wants you to forget about God’s Unconditional Love; and even for your to be too tired to take advantage of the direct link that Jesus Christ reestablished for Humanity by dying on the Cross, PRAYER. Satan destroyed it for a reason in the Garden of Eden (where Adam and Eve had a direct connection in communicating with God, with their sinless human nature); so that we will be lost forever; but Jesus Christ was able to connect us against through the shield He offered through the blood that He gave to cover our sins, if we chose to see what He did.
So, my brothers and sister, hold close guard over your souls. This is the one task that God gave us, once he breathed life into us. He gives us the choice everyday, for us to seek His Guidance in our daily lives, to help us protect our souls from being lost to the same Eternity that Satan and his demons have. We will have to endure earthly trials, and the closer we get in our paths, the more convicted we get in our walks to the Eternal Kingdom, the more sever our trials will get. Satan will not go after those that have already conformed to his ways; so no need for the trials. They are not a point of envy or a threat to his plan. He already has their souls. He wants to steal the souls that God already has called, and convicted to come to His Eternal Kingdom. We must put on the Armor of God everyday, and cover ourselves in the Shield of Protection that Jesus Christ (Yeshua, Yeshu Christu, Yeshuay) gave us through the shedding of His Blood on the Cross at Calvary, by being God’s Sacrificial Lamb, to save Humanity….so that we can discern the deception of evil, and reach the Eternal Kingdom.
Each day we wake up, we have a choice. This ability to choose was not given by anyone else, but by God, the Father of all Creation; through the gift of freewill. Yet many choose each day to become deaf to the wisdom God tries to give us everyday, through our daily life experiences, in both the good, and bad. It is this steadfast faith, that we, as Mankind, are able to separate ourselves from the ways of this world, and experience the true freedom, that God wants us to experience, through our freewill, in Him. This is what Jesus Christ showed us, on the Cross, at Calvary.
You see, the main tactic of evil, is to reshackle us to the world, to which Jesus Christ unshackled us from, through His Death on the Cross, at Calvary. Satan does this through fear; through indulgence of the materialistic things of this world; and even pride. Evil will try to break us down, to the point of getting frustrated, and even losing hope in God; to the point we blame Him, for the atrocities that exist in this world. The truth of the matter is, that we, as Mankind, always had the choice to choose for these things to exist, and to happen. God gives us this choice everyday. Since the beginning of time, there has always been this struggle between GOOD vs. EVIL. The question is, how many of us realize this. Or if we do take note of it, how many of us deliberately choose, out of our own selfish motives, to allow ourselves to fall prey to temptation. And there are moments in our lives, where we are all guilty of this.
When we live for the things of this world, that is when we lose our way from the Father of Creation. Jesus Christ, as His Son, showed us how we are to live our lives, in complete obedience to God. Through His Life Example, how we are to uphold God’s Laws of Divine Love, at all costs, even if it means death to our earthly body. Because with each day that goes by, we see a predominance of Violence, Pride, Lust and Greed. But if we look at Jesus Christ’s Life, we see a life, that showed all of His Disciples, that are only full of Nonviolence, Love, and Mercy…even till the very last breath. Love in its purest form is selfless and sacrificial in nature. It is meek, but never weak. Because of the Divine Source it comes from, it is confident, and strong, in the Truth it represents.
We must not fear anything else, but losing sight of what is Truth, in this world. Jesus Christ did not die, for only those that believed in Him; but to give all of Mankind the opportunity within the darkness in this world, to which Satan casted upon this world, to have the choice to see and accept the Truth or not.
WILL YOU CHOOSE LIGHT OVER DARKNESS, TODAY?
Any physical pain can not compare;
To the persecution of a heart dedicated to God, if you dare.
For the Enemy will try every trick in the book;
In discouraging a heart belonging to God, so that in his realm he can torture and cook.
People controlled by evil, will take a weakness of a good heart and multiply it times double;
While those with a heart grounded in God, take their weaknesses, and try to help them turn into rubble.
God’s people whose hearts and souls are pure in nature;
Are evil’s most prized possessions,that bring him on a false high stature.
The devil will try to instill fear into such hearts;
Convincing and trying to deceive with hypocrisy…while throwing darts.
Remember God asks for a repentant heart…with intentions that are pure;
For this is what will of your souls, cure.
Satan will try to make you feel guilty for your sin;
But remember God loves you so much as to sacrifice His Son…for Salvation…el fin.
God knows how easily we fall to the temptations of the devil…
Fall prey to all of his lies, twisted, and turned on a bevel.
Through the life of His Son, Jesus Christ;
God showed us how we are to live our lives…
To try to live in Ways of Love, Humbleness…repenting in strides…
Before God, setting aside all pride.
While God focuses on your strengths and unique traits;
Satan rubs salt on the wounds of your weaknesses…while with them to sin, he baits.
He will do all he can to deter you from God’s Plan for you;
In subtle ways to steal of your heart and soul too.
Guard it for God, at all costs;
So that your soul, to Satan, will not get lost.
A persecuted heart rooted in God’s Love;
Is treasured from Our Father Up Above…
And despised by the Prince of Darkness, ready to torture and shove.
Do not let fear to set in;
For that is what evil wants, so that such a heart falls to sin.
Remove such evil from your life;
So that a persecuted heart will not go through such great strife.
Jesus demonstrated with His Presence on this Earth;
That God’s Love will give birth…
To a heart that is persecuted but in His Eyes…has GREAT worth.
