The Chilling Fact

…what if I could remove any inhibitions from speculation? ?


 

chilling fact

I can’t say I’ve ever written about current events, but sometimes you just have to share secrets. There are times in life when doubt controls, but what if I could remove any inhibitions from speculation? What if hypothetically was actual? What if – Satan lives? Oh, not just in the minds of many but in a laptop or a computer. Think not?? Think again! My editor, Anne, has always been very happy to edit and post my messages for the world to read. EXCEPT NOW!!!!

After weighing on my heart for many months, the thought of Satan ruining our faithful foundations of life… well… I thought it is time to exploit that Satan is very much alive. And if you doubt me, ask Anne! She fought Friday for four hours trying to post my blog, “As Satan Caves”. Satan fought her tooth and nail by moving his picture and writings around the screen. He was trying deprive her the privilege of exploiting his undermining in our world today. I gave her the secret words to remove him from her laptop.

On Saturday, a message from a new Christian, whose concerns are the same, spoke to a pastor about my exact writings contents. Anne began responding to her with a heartfelt answer. And voila – GONE! Yes! Her response vanished! But not just her response but also the email I received. Hours later, her response and email reappeared.

I think I touched a nerve. No, not Anne’s but Satan’s being! In my mission to exploit the truth, God is so real. Satan remains trying to rule our very way of life. I, for one, stays close to God in prayer as Satan obviously knows I’m affecting his intentions. Rejoicing — I’m making a difference!

Control yourselves. Be on your guard. Your enemy the devil is like a roaring lion. He prowls around looking for someone to chew up and swallow. Stand up to him. Stand firm in what you believe. All over the world you know that your brothers and sisters are going through the same kind of suffering. (1 Peter 5: 8-9)

He may wrestle against you, fighting against your progress in Christ (Ephesians 6:12)

He may try to cripple your effectiveness through confusion, discouragement, and despair (2 Corinthians 4:8-9).

Loyalty vs. Respect

So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them…..


I sat on a bench watching two teams play. It was so cold my posterior froze to the wooden board of a bench. Bundled against the elements, facing the virtues of nature’s wrath. I could hardly predict the outcome. The teams fought hard, made some good plays and scored some points; but they walked away with arms wrapped around the opposing players. It was the only thing heartwarming on that bitter, brutal Sunday afternoon. The fans, too, huddled their way out of the bleachers. It didn’t matter whose side you were on. Just fighting to stay warm was worth its weight.

As we walked away, it wasn’t so much about who won or who lost. It was the sportsmanship displayed. “Loyalty ( strongly supporting each other) and respect (ability to admire someone for the abilities and achievements) goes a long way when two oppose one another”, I said to the father of one of boys on the opposing team. He smiled, shook my hand and said ” Good game!”. I guess he understood. Happy to be warm from the frigid winter winds, my heart steadily pumped 98.3 degree blood in this minus zero body.

I think about that game every now and then and the camaraderie we felt. I almost wish for a reunion of sorts; call it the coldest respect loyaltygame in Hades!!! But as I stop and tap my pencil eraser on the tabletop, I’ve come to want the same with everyone I know. It’s not just a wife or child but the guy I’m walking out of a stadium with as well. Loyalty and respect go hand and hand; you can’t have one without the other. My heart pales for those that try to live eliminating one or the other. Should I tear into the heartless as they rejoice with the absence of loyalty?  That surely is not respectful.

So tomorrow comes. Will things change? Will God intervene? Will you have patience and understanding? Can you allow the loyalty from love abound? And what about respect? Do you have the same on the scale for a janitor as you do for our Lord? I wonder….
