” And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (Genesis 2:9,2:7).
My son gave me a funny collection of clay fish. It was in commemoration of a kiting vacation where Lake Isabella’s water was low and many dead carp, dotted the sand bars. One larger fish at the top seemed to be gobbling up the smaller fish. But what if that last fish was not being eaten, but, what we see is really a “fin” of fish, that could swim upstream, to destroy the BIG FISH, not by might, nor by power by the Holy Spirit?
Today’s HEADLINES, includes the Battle Between God and not god in Israel. There are little fish who are choosing and proposing, to self destruct by suicide or martyrdom. Can we kill “sin?” In judging men and women, of being “sinful,” the bigger problem is the devil. One could be led to think, “we can destroy sin, ” if we kill enough “men, women and children.”
You see Lucifer tempts us to think we can destroy God! Satan can employ us to work for
him, in creating rebellion against God, and His Holy Spirit, who truly dislikes war! We cannot fight the source of sin…it is in Lucifer and his angels! Conflict between God and not god, seeks a resolution, do we want Lucifer and his evil angels to die or continue to tempt us to destroy? “Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? (I Corinthians 6:3). Michael or Lucifer? A vote for God is a vote for Him to destroy Lucifer and his angels! That is why calling on the the name of our Lord, convinces God, to end this Battle between good and evil.
He has heard your cries! He has declared He is wiser, stronger, more powerful than any god, and in using His Name, you are empowered to defend His Kingdom!
A Disciple of Jesus Christ, Ellen White, suggested Gods Commandments and punishments for disobedience, would be strongly studied in the End Times. Justice will prevail! My father went into World War II as a noncombatant, Conscientious Objector, working in a field hospital. His friend Desmond Doss, was also a Conscientious Objector with the Medics, and received the Purple Heart Medal, for saving lives by entering the war zone, and pulling out his comrades. And after all, that is what being a Christian is all about! Saving lives!
