29. ACKNOWLEDGE THE THREAT OF THE DEVIL, LEST, IN ‘IGNORANCE OF his DEVICES’ FALL PREY TO THE DIET he WANT YOU TO EAT.
2 Corinthians 2:11 (KJV)
11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
Some think it is Christian paranoia to acknowledge the work of devils in satanic abuse in this world. Those who do not recognize the threat are not evil, nor corrupt, but are naive, ill trained in discipleship, and therefore vulnerable to being deceived. It is difficult to avoid a wrong diet, to not be partaking of the devil’s lies, to not be victimized by one’s ignorance on the subject, if they do not know there is a devious plan of devils going on in this world.
There is, according to the Bible, a ‘narrow way’ and a ‘broad way’. One leads to life, the other to death. So, if we believe in those two ways, we are not ‘paranoid’, we are in the truth of God. We need not be in fear and torment, for ‘greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world. There are many deceived by the ‘broad way’, and ‘few’ find the ‘narrow way’, so it is vital we are alert.
Matthew 7:13-14 (KJV)
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Deuteronomy 30:15 (KJV)
15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
1 Kings 18:21 (KJV)
21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
Matthew 25:46 (KJV)
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
John 5:28-29 (KJV)
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
Galatians 6:7-8 (KJV)
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
so, if the paranoid are those who """you are either with them or against them. You are either part of the solution or part of the problem""" then He is calling God to be 'paranoid'...
God gives us one choice... resurrection of life, and calls the other one choice evil..
punishment or life eternal.. follow God or follow baal... there is a choice between the two and God calls us to His choice for us... and we can accept it or not...
I am not paranoid... God is not either. The critics of those who recognize the satanic abuse, are way off in definition of paranoid.
1 John 4:4-6 (KJV)
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
