Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) there are some days when I address issues that people don't always think about. I'll be doing that, today.
We'll be discussing Satan. And, people who belong to him.
Gospelway.com posted an article that I think everyone needs to read. It is entitled, The Bible and the Occult: Witchcraft, Wizards, Wicca, Sorcery, Magic, Spiritualism, Paganism and Psychics: http://www.gospelway.com/religiousgroups/witchcraft.php.
Some people don't realize that celebrating Halloween is against God. But, it is.
Did I know this years ago? No. I didn't.
But, now... I do! And, have for a very long time.
How did I find out? I've been reading the Bible, that explains to us, about God... and about Satan, over and over again.
Thinking about this issue brought to mind John 8:42-47, "Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God."
To me, the most important thing about these Bible verses, is the fact that if you do not belong to God, you are of your father, the devil.
The devil, known as Satan, is the father of all unbelievers.
God's Word, the Bible clearly tells us that it is only us believers in Jesus, who belong to God.
How do you become a believer?
Trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31). That's how you become a believer. That's how you belong to God.
There's no other way.
This tells us that anyone who hasn't gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, belongs to Satan.
This applies, as I said... to all people who have not gained salvation through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Including Muslims.
Don't believe me?
Check out this link by grandmageri422.me, who has a blog entry of Absolute Truth from the Word of God entitled, The Truth About Islam: http://grandmageri422.me/2015/09/05/the-truth-about-islam-4/.
I hope you read it. For if you did, you'll see what the Qur'an actually says.
Hopefully, you'll accept things that I've said regarding Islam, in the past. And hopefully, you'll have better understanding of what is happening in various parts of the world. Like, in Paris.
Something that I recently saw on Facebook (FB), was a link to an article that truly upset me.
Charismanews.com posted an article entitled, Pastor Who Called Islam 'Satanic' Refuses to Run From Trial: http://www.charismanews.com/world/53189-pastor-who-called-islam-satanic-refuses-to-run-from-trial.
Because Pastor James McConnell has preached and taught Biblical truth, he is being persecuted.
Just as you will have read, he's due to be in court to stand trial, December 14 - 16th, in U.S.A.
My friend, please join me in prayer.
Pray for James McConnell.
He obviously belongs to God. And, is willing to do what we who belong to God, need to do.
Stand up for His Word, the Bible.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, I thank you for praying. May God bless you.
Until next time...
