Be Not Ignorant of Satan

 In 2015 I had a dream in the night in my head while on my bed, and behold, I saw a young Jewish family on a bright beautiful morning, in which all the males wore yarmulkes, taking pictures. Then as I lifted my eyes I saw a huge armada of spaceships in low earth orbit in which one very tall commander dressed in silver armor with six huge horns that wrapped around from the back of his head, his face shining like the sun in full strength, stood atop one of the ships looking through a pair of binoculars at the earth.

Brethren – this past year it seems as if Satan the devil has ramped up his attacks on us! I am being horrendously personally attacked by Satan – and he is using others in my life to do so. We, brethren, have a desperate fight on our hands. Satan the devil is our sworn enemy – as well as those he uses to torment us. He is obsessively working to eliminate us from the LORD God’s family. We must learn to recognize our enemies and expose their tactics.

We are living in a worsening world! As an example - every day multiple thousands of illegal immigrants are crossing our southern border – changing the United States of America drastically in diversity, becoming more polarized politically, and growing less and less Christian. And don’t let the mainstream media fool you – these illegal immigrants are not “assimilating” into American traditions and culture. And, for the lack of a better term, I mean – Jeffersonian democracy.

According to Larry Mead, Professor of Politics and Public Policy at New York University, “What research shows quite clearly and it also confirms … the poor [immigrants] are not bohemians seeking to live out a liberated life in the midst of an uptight society. No. They actually have very orthodox values, and the central problem in poverty research is to explain how their actual lifestyle can differ so greatly from the values which they themselves affirm, including marriage, including obeying the law, the things that their actual culture, their way of life, violates.” That was of course, before the panel turned the discussion racial. 1 He also has stated, “The immigration debate has ignored effects on American culture. The United States has become a multicultural society, which is good, but rapid immigration threatens to turn it into a mainly Latin American and Asian country. That would undermine the individualist culture, derived from Europe, that is essential to American world leadership.” 2

Not to mention – this world is saturated with an avalanche of fake news and false information. Confusion abounds! People the world over are frustrated and perplexed. This is not the design of the LORD God’s world! No, in fact, the LORD God is not the author of confusion – 1 Corinthians 14:33. But, Satan the devil is – and the LORD God warns us not to be ignorant of his devices – 2 Corinthians 2:11.

Certainly, before the LORD God opened our minds to the living Word of God, the Truth of God, and the Plan of God, we might have thought that Satan the devil and his minions had merely “progressed from a belief in magic [and I might add, darkness, ignorance, and superstitions] as a means of controlling [mankind’s] environment to religious beliefs, which propitiated” their gods, goddesses, and spirits. 3 Brethren, even today, we tend to gravely discount the terrifying reality of Satan the devil, and his demons – and he is quick to take advantage of this.

Satan the devil is REAL!

There is a myth that has been spread throughout the world – that Satan doesn’t exist. “How can people seriously believe in the devil? The year is 2015, not 1315. And yet, the fact remains that tens of millions of Americans continue to believe that there is a magical, wicked, evil—oh, and smart—being out there doing magical, wicked, evil deeds and presiding over a fiery realm, where demons crawl and witches cackle. Oh, wait. No cackling witches. Just demons, right?” - Phil Zuckerman Ph.D. 4 This kind of thinking not only facilitates Satan’s devious work, but it also gives him a perverted “cackle.”

Something that Satan understands and the majority of humanity does not – is that seemingly insignificant human beings (in terms of the majestic vastness of the universe) on this relatively small planet have the potential, the glorious and merciful opportunity, to become God! While he, “brilliant and beautiful” will be “destroyed” forever. Satan is thus desperately trying to destroy all men!

Now, who would Satan the devil and his minions rather destroy!? An ignorant child in Africa, Asia, or South America!? No, brethren – it’s us! Our eternal destruction is his ultimate goal – because the LORD God has promised us that we will be the firstfruits of the God family – which at this time consists of God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ! We MUST come to realize and understand, brethren, that we who are being called now do not get another chance!

As Jerusalem is being surrounded by her enemies and we are drawing nearer to our Lord Jesus Christ’s return, Satan the devil and his imps will apply even more pressure – “ … ‘Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time’” – Revelation 12:12. Satan the devil will soon bolster his Mother Church – and his daughter churches – with great signs in the sight of all men! – cf. Revelation 13:11-14. “’ For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect’” – Matthew 24:24. “’ See, I have told you beforehand.’” Implying that you, brethren, won’t be deceived because you will know the TRUTH. Jesus Christ is claiming that in the end-time there would be people who say they represent Jesus Christ – and they don’t! They are lying! They’re false prophets! There IS a GRAVE DANGER! I know from experience of the grave danger of temptation which can and will (if you allow it) ensnare you into this world – into the false doctrine of even reincarnation – into forbidden fellowship or false worship. Or, in thinking that the LORD God is not answering your prayer. Also, sadly, there is one in our very midst, THAT’S EVEN HARDER TO RESIST – the impulse to listen to a professed BROTHER OR SISTER – who begins to say to you “You will not surely die.” One who – as Paul says – preaches any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you. One who proclaims to you, “Cain is Satan’s son.” Or, “Adam was a hermaphrodite.” Or, “angels had sex.”

Surrounded By Enemies

Imagine yourself in an African game reserve. Lions, cheetahs, and leopards are prowling all around you. In the darkest of nights, the calling hyenas, and the roar of a lioness! They are hungry!

Brethren – we are like one in an African game reserve surrounded by lions, cheetahs, and leopards – vulnerable to Satan the devil, and his imps! But, we are not alone! Our Lord Jesus Christ has assured us, “ … ‘ lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’” “’ Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you with My righteous right hand’” – Isaiah 41:10.

Oftentimes these lions, cheetahs, and leopards are family members, friends – or your mothers-in-law boyfriend! Our LORD God warns us, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” – 1 Peter 5:8. Do you heed this Scripture!? Or, do you think that your family member, friend, or mothers-in-law boyfriend surely isn’t being INFLUENCED TO ATTACK YOU by an evil powerful spirit!? DO YOU BELIEVE THE LORD GOD!? We had better – our very salvation depends upon it!

Many of us have wrongly assumed that the only battle we have in life is with ourselves – with the works of the flesh (cf. Galatians 5:19-21). But this is not true. The apostle Paul also states that we should “put on the whole armor of God, that [we] may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12) For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this age, AGAINST SPIRITUAL HOSTS OF WICKEDNESS in the heavenly places” – Ephesians 6:10-12. Satan the devil is the deceiver of this age – not the Church of Jesus Christ! Satan, our mortal and spiritual enemy, knows every facet and nuance of human nature – and exploits it!

To Arms! To Arms! Take Up the Shield of Faith!

Let us, however, not resort to the level of those Satan the devil uses and influences! Let us not hate, clench our fists, and lash out. Let us also not just roll over and let our enemies take advantage and abuse us. Our LORD God has not created and then called us, brethren, to merely be a target for Satan’s fiery darts! Our loving Father and Elder Brother have not given Satan the devil and his imps complete freedom to do whatever their heart desires.

Minister Michael C. Garrett –
“Are you thinking about others, or are you thinking about yourself!? Very simple formula. And I think it was a very accurate formula. … Turn to Philippians chapter 4 – there’s a wonderful passage about peace. Verse 4 – “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” – and we, sometimes, as the people of God, forget to rejoice! We get so concerned and heavy laden with all of the news of the world, and maybe individual problems, situations within our families and friends, work, and bank accounts, and all the things that we start to worry about. But we should always keep in mind that in the end The Anchor Holds, Jesus Christ is there, and He will be with us!”
The apostle Paul gave us another wonderful passage. Ephesians chapter 4, about three verses. We can, sadly, “grieve the Spirit.” Verse 30 – “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, …” – We’ve always seen this to mean – don’t squeeze the Spirit of God out of you! I don’t think God takes His Spirit from you. Because we’re told, the gifts and the repentance of God are without repentance. He doesn’t take away His Spirit, but I think we – as human beings – have the capability to simply drive God out of our minds, and out of our presence. Verse 31 – “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. 32) And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” – and think about the times we’ve been told – if you are not willing to extend mercy, mercy will not be shown to you! If you are not willing to forgive, forgiveness will not be extended to you by God. It’s said over and over, just plain as can be!

Notice that in 1st Peter 5:8, the apostle Peter wrote under inspiration, “the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he MAY devour.” And, whom MAY Satan the adversary devour? Can he devour you!? It’s an IMPORTANT question!

We can certainly know who he MAY devour by knowing who he cannot devour. “We know that whosoever is BORN OF GOD sinneth not; but he that is BEGOTTEN OF GOD keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not” – 1 John 5:18, KJV. That wicked one (Satan the devil) CANNOT TOUCH A BEGOTTEN CHILD OF GOD who “KEEPS HIMSELF”! In other words, IF WE ARE VIGILANT AND WATCHFUL!

Are you able to believe this guarantee from JESUS CHRIST THE MAGNIFICENT ONE!? The LORD God states that Satan the devil cannot even touch us – so long as we “keep ourselves.” If we are vigilant and sincerely dedicated to our Lord Jesus Christ. But, if we let our guard down and do not “keep ourselves” then Satan the devil will have an opportunity to devour us.

The apostle Paul warns not to “give place to the devil.” – Ephesians 4:27. In other words, don’t give Satan the devil and his imps an inch. Our enemy will use any means – any open opportunity – by which he can take advantage of us. An example in the Book of Job shows us that Satan the devil will attack our very character and will try to dislodge our integrity and faithfulness to the LORD God – cf. Job 1:6-11.

The LORD God’s loving mercy and grace have blessed us with ample spiritual ammunition to ward off Satan the devil and his imps. But, we MUST utilize this spiritual ammunition! Our enemies have many devices they use and we must know them – and expose them.

Satan the devil “loves” Sin

You have heard us say – we unapologetically and boldly say the old adage, “Love the sinner, hate the sin” – and we hold to this. But, Satan the devil, and his demons are diametrically the opposite. They hate the sinner, but love the sin! Satan is the personification of all sin! Therefore, every single sin we commit is like crawling into a dark tunnel and finding yourself inside the mind of the evil one – Satan the devil! “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. …” – 1 John 3:8. As we harbor a sin, Satan establishes an effective base of operations within us for expanding his evil and vile influence. The longer any sin remains festering within us, the harder it becomes to eject Satan the devil out of our minds.

This is not an analogy of the movie “Being John Malkovich.” This is reality! The LORD God tells us, brethren, that every time we are disobedient, Satan the devil’s spirit “worketh” in us! – cf. Ephesians 2:2.

Forgive and Forget Sins

Do you find it difficult to forgive and forget sins – either those you have committed and have sincerely and heartfelt repented of, or sins committed against you!? “’ For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15) But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses’” – Matthew 6:14-15. When you sin and you immediately go to Father God and our Lord Jesus Christ and sincerely repent and ask for forgiveness – do you then forget that sin!? Do you forgive yourself!? When a person trespasses against you – do you ask Father God and our Lord Jesus Christ to forgive that person for their trespass against you!? Do you – like the LORD God – then forget that sin that they trespassed against you!?

“For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; 12) As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us” – Psalm 103:11-12.

Or, do you continue to dredge up and remember the transgression – the sin!? When you see or hear that person who trespassed against you, do you immediately allow that trespass to spark in your mind? Does your unforgiveness of sin taint your attitude toward that person? The LORD God remembers our sins no more – “’ I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins’” – Isaiah 43:25.

Brethren, when we continue to rehash and harp on the bygone sins of others – we are not punishing that person – we are merely damaging ourselves and opening ourselves up to Satan the devil.

Sadly, we tend to forget what we should remember and remember what we should forget. Every sin, trespass, and grudge that we forgive and forget, another door is shut for any demonical influence in our mind! Let it be for your own sake that you forgive and forget transgressions against you.

Again, I am not saying – just roll over and let our enemies take advantage and abuse us. No, like Deputy Barney Fife so often said, “Nip it in the bud!” But we must forgive and forget – for our own sake. For the sake of salvation.

Be Not Discouraged!

We are always affected by those who trespass against us. Physically or emotionally. When severe personal tribulations close in on us, let us not be disheartened, discouraged, or dismayed. The apostle Paul knew and understood that the discouragements resulting from tribulations laid the groundwork for the “tempter” to tempt us.

“Therefore, when we could no longer endure it, we thought it good to be left in Athens alone, 2) and sent Timothy, our brother and minister of God, and our fellow laborer IN THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST, to establish you and encourage you concerning your faith, 3) that no one should be shaken by these afflictions; for you yourselves know that we are appointed to this.” In other words, we are appointed to have tribulations! In fact, he states just this – “For, in fact, we told you before when we were with you that we would suffer tribulation, just as it happened, and you know.

For THIS REASON, when I could no longer endure it, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter had tempted you, and our labor might be in vain” – 1 Thessalonians 3:1-5.

This is reminiscent of James 1:2-4 – “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials [tribulations], 3) knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” Tribulations help us develop perseverance, endurance, and spiritual maturity.

We are commanded to live by faith – Romans 1:17. The worse the trial – the tribulation – the greater the potential for the development of faith. A faith that can remove mountains if need be – metaphorically speaking. Let us not allow Satan the devil to have any opening by becoming disheartened, discouraged, or dismayed by a trial. Rather, ask Father God and our Lord Jesus Christ to grant you even more of Their faith.

This morning in thought and meditation upon the living words of God I came to see and understand that the tribulation that I am going through is not as important as I think it is. I asked Father God and our Lord Jesus to take this burden from me (the burden of thinking and feeling that this tribulation is weightier than it actually is – the sky is not falling. It was just an acorn!). To replace any or all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking with love, mercy, forgiveness, and wisdom.

“And above all things have fervent love for one another, for ‘love will cover a multitude of sins.’” – 1 Peter 4:8. As well as – trespasses.

Be Not Self-Righteous

Pride can make a person become condescending and self-righteous so that he sees himself as greater than he actually is. Lucifer was prideful and he became SELF-RIGHTEOUS! Thinking himself greater than our Lord Jesus Christ! It’s easier for prostitutes or even Sabbath-breakers to acknowledge their sins than even a self-righteous individual. A self-righteous person – by definition – does not normally recognize their sins.

The wonderful Book of Job (pronounced jōb) is within God’s living word to teach us the lesson of self-righteousness. Because Job, in his heart, had said, “I am pure, without transgression; I am innocent, and there is no iniquity in me. Yet He [the LORD God] finds occasions against me, He counts me as His enemy.’” – Job 33:8-10.

The prophet Job was righteous in his own eyes. Have you ever accused the LORD God and felt that They dealt with you unfairly!? Perhaps you did not outwardly sin with your lips (Job 2:10), but inwardly you sinned in your heart with feelings of bitterness and resentfulness toward the LORD God – maybe for Them not immediately taking care of the tribulation!? A trial or tribulation that maybe you caused yourself. Let us be reminded of the words of the apostle Paul to the Philippians – “Yet the things that were gain to me, these things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. 8) But then truly, I count all things to be loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord; for Whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as dung; that I may gain Christ” – Philippians 3:7-8, NET. We, brethren, should be of the same mindset. Sadly, a great many are self-righteous individuals who exude an air of self-confidence and self-satisfaction – say, in their ability to go to a church every Sunday! “For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God” – Romans 10:3.

As I noted in our online PDF booklet “Does God Exist?” ─ of a female Lutheran LGBTQ+ preacher who was exhibiting self-righteousness – self-righteous people tend not to be alone. She vehemently invited the young man who challenged her back to her lair – surely so that she would have a Legion behind her. All with the same general belief! To console, sympathize, encourage, and sustain each other in their self-righteousness – just as their father Satan the devil has always done.

Be Not Accusatory!

Have you ever thought why a particular individual who has trespassed against you is still doing just fine!? You, of course, “knew” that he or she had trespassed against you - is the LORD God blind!? Certainly not! “Why isn’t the LORD God punishing that person?”

Do not despise the riches of the LORD God’s goodness, patience, self-control, and tolerance. But rather know “that the goodness of God leads you to repentance.”

Sadly, some judge others – especially those in the Church of Jesus Christ. Often, when we feel that when a member of His Church stumbles, our status rises. But, in fact, we all suffer – cf. 1st Corinthians 12:26.

We are warned, “ … you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; …” – Romans 2:1. Now understand – “’ Judge not, that you be not judged’” does not mean that we can never tell whether or not something is a sin. As an example (and was pointed out recently by Minister Guy LaMar) –
“Godly people care about their form of dress. Within the military and most corporate offices require a dress code of respectability – so should people who come before the LORD God in Church.

As an example: A true Christian woman should dress classy and respectable. Through the years, I’ve personally seen young girls come to Church dressed like a street walker. They don’t care that they are there to honor the LORD God. They don’t care that they are dishonoring the name that they claim to bear. It’s all based upon their own vanity. It’s all about self-pleasure, as opposed to dressing to HONOR the LORD God.

1st Timothy 2:9-10 – “in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves IN MODEST APPAREL, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair (and DREADLOCKS is a good example) or gold or pearls or costly clothing (which is a lot of what you witness in a great many of these worldly churches), 10) but, which is PROPER for women professing godliness, with good works.”
And, of course, a great many women attacked him for this!

Brethren, “’ Judge not’” means do not impute motives, do not malign an underlying attitude, do not condemn. Only the LORD God can look within someone’s heart (cf. 1st Samuel 16:7). Only the LORD God can pass that judgment or that condemnation.

Too often some question the sincerity, the intent, or even the conversion of someone in the Church of Jesus Christ. Just like most of the splinter groups of the Church of God proudly claim that they are the members of “the Philadelphia era,” many never fail to give themselves any benefit of the doubt. Not properly understanding what our Lord Jesus Christ is saying here, in this Book of prophecy – talking about the end-time! The Book of Revelation is a Book which was only to be understood in the end-time. And now that we’re in, or rather near, the end-time, it’s starting to be understood. And chapters 2 & 3 – although He’s talking about an earlier group of people, the former, it’s also a prophecy about the latter. About the latter days. This is an end-time prophecy. There are aspects of all seven churches within the whole of the body of Christ. So, when you point at a “Laodicean” (as an example) you’re pointing three fingers back at yourself! – “There is ONE BODY and ONE SPIRIT, just as you were called in ONE HOPE of your calling; 5) ONE LORD, ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM; 6) ONE GOD and FATHER of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all” – Ephesians 4:4-6.

Satan the devil certainly hysterically gloats on his throne when one church proudly announces that it is they – and only they – that are of “the Philadelphia era”! Our enemies – Satan the devil and his imps – are busy accusing the brethren day and night before the LORD God! In fact, one of Satan the devil’s titles is “The Accuser of Our Brethren”!

Gird Up Your Loin With Jesus Christ!

Brethren, the LORD our God does not leave us defenseless. Our mighty Lord Jesus THE MAGNIFICENT goes beyond just telling us what not to do – He also instructs us what we should be doing to thwart Satan the devil and his devices. He has not given us “a spirit of fear” or ignorance, “but of power and of love and of A SOUND MIND” – 1 Timothy 1:7.

The apostle Paul goes over this with us in Ephesians 4 –

“if indeed you have been taught BY HIM, as the truth is IN JESUS: 22) that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23) and BE RENEWED IN THE SPIRIT OF YOUR MIND, 24) and that you PUT ON THE NEW MAN which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

25) Therefore, PUTTING AWAY LYING [which includes putting away FALSE RELIGIONS AND BELIEFS], ‘Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,’ for we are members of one another. 26) ‘Be angry, and do not sin’ : do not let the sun go down on your wrath 27) nor give place to the devil. 28) Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. 29) LET NO CORRUPT WORD [or even FALSE DOCTRINE, or GOSSIP] proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.”

And again – Ephesians 4:30 – “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by [which] you were sealed for the day of redemption.”

Here is an all-encompassing method for counteracting Satan the devil and his imps! How is a way we can use God’s Holy Spirit? Well, God’s Spirit does not make one do anything – does not coerce; rather it leads and oversees and suggests thoughts in our minds. This constantly occurs within the minds of God’s begotten children! We should never ignore these suggestions but rather proceed to carry out what God’s Spirit suggests to us – not giving place to Satan the devil.

Finally, my brethren – turning to Ephesians 6 – describes our defenses against Satan’s kingdom.

“Put on the WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD” and “take up the WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD” “so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

1) “Put on” and “take up” are both active processes. We must consciously every day wholeheartedly do our part.

2) We NEED the “whole” armor of God.” Nothing less than the full protection of God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ!

3) “to stand against the wiles of the devil.” We have no alternative but to stand and fight. Running away from a roaring lion will only be worse. It’s important to remain threatening to Satan the devil and his imps while your loin is girded with the WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD!

“above all, taking the SHIELD OF FAITH with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one” – Ephesians 6:10-16.

What are his fiery darts!? Well, they may come in various guises – persecutions, false accusations, and tribulations. But, brethren, so long as we have THE SHIELD OF FAITH – “FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST” – Satan’s fiery darts will only bounce off!

“THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT” is an awesome offensive weapon, the sword here being the living WORD OF GOD (Ephesians 6:17). In any situation, any temptation, threat, or tribulation, a blitzkrieg offensive attack with the living WORD OF GOD will irrevocably turn the tide of the war. In each of three recorded attacks by Satan the devil against our Lord Jesus Christ, He quoted Scripture! – Matthew 4:1-11. The IMMEDIATE counterattack of the most opportune Scriptures stopped Satan the devil cold! And, our Lord Jesus Christ promises us that the appropriate areas of His living word will come to our minds in times of need –

’ But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils [even including religious councils] and scourge you in their synagogues [even in their churches]. 18) You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony [a witness] to them and to the Gentiles. 19) But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you’” – Matthew 10:16-20.

We must, brethren, continuously read and study God’s living word, diligently building up our Scriptural vocabulary and understanding.

Finally – we see how to integrate and vivify all the pieces of God’s armor into one strong team –

“praying ALWAYS with all prayer and supplication IN THE SPIRIT, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints─” – Ephesians 6:18.

Brethren, this work of JESUS CHRIST is trumpeting the glorious and powerful return of our Savior, Master, and Elder Brother to take the kingdoms of this world away from Satan the devil! And this work of JESUS CHRIST helps reveal the ‘mysteries’ of God’ and the very fact that every person – past, present, and future – can qualify to become God!

Let us continue this living work of the Eternal God while it is still day. Because night is coming when no one can work – John 9:4; Amos 8:11-12.

For as long as the saints of God are in this world – there is light! – Matthew 5:14. When all the saints of God are resurrected upon the blowing of the SEVENTH TRUMP – there will no longer be light in the world!

“THEREFORE submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8) Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. …” – James 4:7, 8. □
