We human beings have all been played, deceived, preyed upon, used, and abused in some fashion or another by a common enemy. Its purposed is to kill (murder), steal (what rightful belongs to you), and destroy (you before you grasped an understanding of his plot).
From the beginning of time, it was so and continues to this very day and has even increased his attacks for it knows what is about to happen and it is not good for him and his plans. The bad news is we all have allowed him to play us like a violin by leading us further and further into darkness where he rules. Where he has twisted(perverted every thing God has said and Jesus Christ has done) the truth to keep us from discovering and receiving the TRUTH; his kingdom or rule is based upon LIES for is the father of lies.
If he can keep us distracted, focused on money, careers, materialistic things, and our lusts; the stronger his grip (strongholds) becomes. Our thoughts, emotions, and choices are totally focused upon the dangling traps and snares he has set up personally for us.
We can see it with our own eyes today; how money (the have and have nots) is being used in every arena or industry to entice mankind and the hungry and thirst (pursuit to make more to buy more) has corrupt the minds of people.
We are seeing how hatred taught by generations and generations is still stealing, killing, and destroying the minds and bodies of people in this generation and effecting the one coming behind us. Only the LOVE of God can change the hearts and minds of the people and only then can effective strategies be designed to serve the good of mankind.
We see how mankind is worshiping other gods (fame, people who appear to be successful, and themselves) instead of the one and True God. The one who created this planet and everything in it including the human being whom he breathed HIS life into ( an empty shell of the body). A body he molded with his own hands that was wonderfully made with every system, cell, and bone that works together to maintain what he created. This enemy knows if he can control the soul (thoughts, emotions, and will) of the human being; it could destroy the body likewise. We can not complete our assignment or purpose without the body to carry us.
The plot of our common enemy is to keep us:
– blinded to the truth of the matter,
-so busy and distracted that we do not take the time to discover the truth, (everybody else is doing it so there can’t be anything wrong with it),
-keep us in bondage enslaved by his thoughts (strongholds, fears, and beliefs many passed from generation to generation) that we received and made our own,
-to destroy others to get to the pinnacle of the mountain to view the kingdoms that he owns and you will never arrive.
Herein is the deception, he points you toward what looks (false perceptions, delusions) like the way to greatness, peace, joy, happiness, and LOVE.
HOWEVER, the GOOD NEWS IS THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD. You do not have to stay in darkness, be blind, nor deceived. It is simply a choice (life or death) to reach out for help out of darkness. The darkness is in our soul (mind, emotions, and will) and the battlefield. For when we came out of our mother’s womb we were born into SIN without doing a single thing because the deed was already done.
SIN (missing the mark, unbelief, disobedience) was already here (Genesis 1-3) and the wages of it is death. But one does not have to die before their designated time, before they fulfill their assignment, or make their deposit that has been given by God before we were even born.
The enemy does not want you to receive your sight (light, revelation), discovery who you really are and what God has given every human being on this earth. So, he lies, plots, coverup and distracts with the busyness of the world, trying to keep the bills paid, providing for ours into exhaustion. So much so, we become:
-destructive (to ourselves and others),
-found chasing an illusion or question the meaning of life and your purpose on this earth.
Many have given up and have shut down (we see it by their words and behavior) for their is no empathy, compassion, or mercy. Pride and Fear has grown and has lead many further into darkness and selfishness but GOD through Jesus Christ can change the whole picture.
For HE is the ANSWER to the PROBLEM (sin). HE HAS ALREADY DEFEATED THE ENEMY. The common enemy to the people (every human being in the earth) does not want you to discover the ANSWER because he will have to release your MIND, EMOTIONS, and THE CHOICES YOU MAKE because of the Name of Jesus, the Blood he shed, power of HIS Word, and the Holy Spirit.
BUT GOD in his WORD (The Holy Bible) says CHOOSE this day who you will serve, who you will worship and according to your choice LIFE from God through Jesus Christ:
– you will receive the blessing, benefits, protection, wisdom, a plan of escape through and out of the trials and tribulation that we all have to go through in our journey in the Wilderness (this world) BUT we are never alone and he promised never to forsake us.
We make hundreds of decisions everyday however this will be one of the most important one you will ever make because it is between life or death (in this day spiritual or physical or both). It means salvation:
– from the wrath of God (wages of sin is death)
-healing (from broken hearts, destruction strategically plotted by the enemy, and
– deliverance from the lies and strongholds) .
CHOOSE THIS DAY WHO YOU WILL BELIEVE, WHO YOU WILL WORSHIP, WHO YOU WILL SERVE, WHO YOU WILL OBEY. DO IT TODAY, DO NOT PUT IT OFF. ASK AND REACH OUT FOR JESUS CHRIST WHO IS THE ANSWER (YOUR PERSONAL ANSWER), SAVIOR, HEALER AND DELIVERER.
DO NOT ALLOW THE ENEMY WHO IS ALREADY DEFEATED (A LIAR AND A LOSER) CONTINUE TO PLAY YOU (DECEIVE YOU) FOR HE IS NOT YOUR FRIEND, HE ACTUALLY HATES YOU BECAUSE GOD LOVES YOU AND ALREADY HAS A PLAN FOR EACH ONE OF US.
STOP, LISTEN, BELIEVE, RECEIVE, ASK FOR FORGIVENESS AND REPENT. HE WILL HEAR YOUR VOICE OF SINCERITY, HE WILL SHINE THE LIGHT INTO YOUR HEART AND THOUGHTS AND SHOW YOU THE WAY OUT OF DARKNESS.
MARK THIS DATE ON YOUR CALENDAR, FOR YOUR CHOICE WILL BE RECORDED IN HEAVEN. Don’t be played and don’t play anyone else for the Truth will set one free!!!
Study, search out the scriptures, speak the word out loud, believe what you hear (his Words), ask for direction and wisdom. Pray and Pray.. repent, repent, and allow the Holy Spirit to lead, teach, and reveal what you need to know right now.
Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.
And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1 Corinthians 15:33
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe Morein thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder,
And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
