  1. The battle between good and evil. Simply put, that is what the Bible is all about. The battle lines are drawn in the Garden of Eden. I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her Seed. Our Heavenly Father was pronouncing sentence on Satan. The war between good and evil began there, and it is highlighted throughout the Bible with battle after battle pitting the evil seed against the good Seed. Satan had to stop the good Seed from coming to fruition. In other words, the Devil had to stop Jesus Christ from being born, because he knew it meant his destruction if it came to pass. Of course, that Divine birth did take place and now our Beloved holds the keys between death and hell. Confused? Don't be, it's simple really. Satan had to stop Christ from being born and his attempts at making that happen are documented in many books of the Bible.This might be easier to understand with examples; let us look at Satan's 2nd attempt to destroy Jesus Christ, the good Seed. Cain killed his brother, Abel. Satan was successful in destroying the good Seed when Cain did this, and Seth had to be born to replace Abel. The Apostle John puts it this way: Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous. 1 John 3:12 Cain's works were evil and Abel's works were good. Got it? There are numerous, and I mean numerous examples of the Devil trying to destroy the righteous Seed line of Christ. Let me give you one more example. The righteous Seed line of Christ, through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was on shaky ground so our Father sent It to Egypt where It could recoup, refresh and replenish Itself for over 400 years. It worked, and we find Moses standing at the Red Sea with over one and a half million. Pharaoh was about to slaughter every last one of them until our Father turned the tables on him and killed all the Egyptians. We all know the story, but if Pharaoh had been successful the righteous Seed line of Christ would have been gone. Better said, the rightful Owner of the keys to death and hell would have stayed with Satan. What? Yes, when our Beloved went on the cross for us, He took those keys from Satan, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the Devil. And that's what the Holy Bible is all about. Of course, the Bible is about much more than that, instructions in righteousness, for instance. And I don't believe in long posts, so I'll just leave it at that. Thanks for listening. James.
  2. Stop it BCB, you are taking away all my excuses! Good post, it is obvious in Proverbs and other books that our Father does not think highly of the lazy.
  3. Hi BCB, you are right, and technology has made sin an easy trap to fall into. For instance, when I was a kid we had to sneak into my neighbor's basement to get a look at Sunshine magazine (a nudist magazine from the 50's). Now we only need to click a button to see the foulest things. Bless our Heavenly Father and our beloved Lord Jesus for Their forgiveness. It is Their wish that all would come to repentance and that none would have to perish.
  4. Thanks Becky! I'm just too dumb when it comes to these confounded machines. Gee, maybe I'm ready for a smartphone!
  5. Hi Deidre. Loved your answer to my post. I'm pretty dumb with computer though. I wanted to answer your post directly, but could not figure out which button to push for a direct reply. Can you help?
  6. Do you please God? You should want to, and if you are not pleasing Him, why not? This is something many of us go through life never thinking about, but in reality, it's why we are here. Read this scripture from the book of Revelation: Thou art worthy, O LORD, to receive glory, and honor and power: for Thou has created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and .were created. Revelation 4:11 Don't try to get out of it, He created us for His pleasure, and I'm willing to bet there are a whole bunch of us who are not very pleasing to Him. My advise? Change that. Sure, there are a number of reasons we are going through this flesh life, for instance, we are here to be tested. "This is a test . . . this is only a test." That said, do you think it would be easier to pass our tests if our Heavenly Father is pleased with us? Just saying, this is something to think about.
