The most important thing for us is to go to heaven. That’s why we must lead a specific and certain life of faith. Our life seems to go on for a long time, but nobody knows when death will come upon us. We have to prepare for salvation before we die. We shouldn’t shrink back in the faith, even though the devil persistently tries to keep us away from our faith and to kill us through our sinful desires. We must guard our souls through knowing the devils’ scheme. We must live a life of concrete and certain faith because God will judge us according to the Bible.
Our country is under the wrath of God because it is full of suicide, abortion and sexual sins and the government is planning to approve homosexuality. Now, we have to repent of our sins on our knees for ourselves and for this country.
Lucifer was created by God, but became arrogant so he challenged God. As a result, God had the fallen angel, Lucifer, thrown into eternal darkness as punishment. When Adam and Eve were disobedient to God by eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil that God had forbidden them to eat, saying “ You will surely die if you eat it.”, God drove them out of the garden of Eden. Likewise, when you disobey God, you will be punished in accordance with the Law of God, even if you are an angel or loved by God.
At the moment you commit sins, you are God’s enemy since sin comes from the devil and Satan. You’re making a mistake if you think that repentance just gets rid of your guilty conscience after you commit sins. You must decide never to commit the same sins ever again while showing a broken spirit.
The wages of sins is death no matter how serious the sins are. (Romand 6:23) People will be punished in hell for their sins forever. Therefore, we must overcome the sins which are disobedience, greed, murder, lying and witchcraft working in us to the point of death. We don’t give the devil a foothold when we escape our flesh’s desire and hold on to the blood of Jesus.
As we see the Last Day approaching, we must pray to see the spiritual world directly with more spiritual knowledge and discerning of spirits and thus get the victory by the power of the Holy Spirit.
