Other than John the Baptist, who was the first person to recognize Jesus as the “Holy One of God”? Interestingly enough, it was a demon possessed man. James also said that even the devil believes in one God and trembles. Yet the devil is at war with God and His people.
The devil knows the Scriptures better than any of us and he has to know his time is running out. Prophecies are being fulfilled that will culminate in the return of Jesus Christ. The devil knows this and is getting desperate. Each passing day is one less day of his reign in this world, so he continually turns up the heat. Just watch the news, read social media. See the hatred, the divisiveness, the evil, the confusion.
Some people don’t know their gender or want to identify with the opposite. Free speech is tolerated unless you speak biblical truth and then you’re a hater. Your truth is your truth and my truth is my truth, unless my truth is Christian truth. Then I’m intolerant. Even some Christian pastors refuse to affirm that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.
Almost 1.5 billion babies murdered “legally” in the world since 1980. That’s BILLION. 1,500,000,000. That’s the entire population of China. Abortion is the very face of evil. But this post isn’t about abortion. It’s about spiritual warfare. And there is a direct correlation between the passing days and the intensity of evil perpetuated in our world.
There is a God and there is a devil. They know each other. There are 2 sides and only 2 sides. It looks like the devil is winning right now. But he won’t. The question is, what side are you on? It’s a shame that even the devil believes in God, yet His created beings reject Him.
