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.
Those of us who have decided to walk the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, will know what I mean by the title of this entry. When God, the Father of Creation (Jehovah, Devum, Yahweh) has stated that His Ways are not of the world’s way but are beyond them, He truly meant that. This is what He showed us through the Life Example and Death of His Son, Jesus Christ (Yeshuay, Yeshu Christu, Yeshua). God, the Father of Creation, has called all of His Chosen Children, that are bound toward the path toward the Eternal Kingdom, to follow His Divine Laws of Love, ways of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy, at all costs, even to the point of an earthly death. Those that are bound to this path, know that our time on this earth is limited, in comparison to the eternity given to the souls that are deep within us, as humanity.That is what sets us apart from any of God, the Father’s creations….it is the soul that He has given us, to keep guard over. We know that there is more to life, than what we can see with our human eyes, hear with our human ears, smelling, tasting, and touching with our human nose, tongue, and our skin.
A heart that has been given the spark by God, and have truly seen and understood what Jesus Christ did on the Cross, on that day on Calvary, that spark will never die. That spark was put within such a heart because God, the Father, has seen fertile ground and a pure heart that He found worthy for the Holy Spirit to dwell within its soul. No matter how far Satan and his demons will try to throw such a heart and soul off the path towards the Eternal Kingdom, that spark will never die. Satan and his demons hate a heart and soul that hungers for God and His Divine Laws of Love. If you look at any saint, they all have had a life that was in the earthly sense considered that full of trial, devoid of earthly riches, and a soul that sticks out in the crowd. Such souls that are seek the Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation, will see that the ways of Jesus Christ, His Son, are ways that are not of this world, but are in accordance to the Divine Laws of Love, ways of the Eternal Kingdom. A Kingdom to which God has banned Satan and his demons, which is what makes such souls a target of his envy, for what he can never have again…..God’s Unconditional Love, Peace, and Joy, and to sit in the very throne room of the Most High. So if he can never have it again, none of humanity (God’s most prized creations) will ever see it or know of it.
However, that is the difference between those that are given the testimony within their hearts and souls. This testimony is what gives the human side of the heart and soul, the conviction to continue on with the supernatural path of the Eternal Kingdom of God, the Father of Creation. Despite the earthly circumstances that may surround such souls, God, continues to lead such souls that He set on Fire with the testimony that He had custom made for them, towards the Eternal Kingdom. However, just as He did for Job, and all of His Previous Saints that walked before us, God, never allows for evil to give us more than what we can handle. God, knows and trusts His Children such trials in order to refine their souls in the fires of the furnace, to the perfect diamonds that He created for them to be; to cut them off from the ways of this world, a world to which He states that His Ways are not a part of.
So through the trials, keep up the good fight. God sees it all, and will count every tear that is shed. He will count every drop of blood of His Innocent. He will count every sorrow, and see who caused them to you, on behalf of Satan and his demons, and will account for them on your behalf one day. Have faith that God, the Father loves you, just as Jesus Christ, His Son, showed us on that day on Calvary, on the Cross.
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.
