Last evening we watched the movie again – Joyeux Noel – about the Christmas truce in 1914 during World War I. Let me just say that it should be mandatory for every human being that draws breath and certainly for every Christian. It was a peek into the real reason we are on this earth – to be a blessing for mankind by following the Spirit of God – and NOT the spirit of the father of LIES!
From a year ago - Joyeux Noel! Let's all celebrate the Birth of the PRINCE of PEACE! - CL
contains an entire study which reveals the utter
stupidity of mankind EVIL
which rules us – and especially the last 100+ years.
We are reaping NOW what we and our predecessors have sown – can we see it? Will we even look? Willful blindness is a deliberate act!
From a month ago - Are We Governed by Humans? - another study requiring serious intellectual curiosity and persistent effort – showing that Satan acts through his human instruments!
As I repeatedly state – a mentor is NOT a casual reader – a mentor is a reader, learner and TEACHER. We are not dealing with a lazy enemy - "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." (1 Peter 5:8)
This grave warning concerning the devil was given not only to young Christians, easily subject to temptations, but also to "the elders which are among you" (v. 1). It often seems, in fact, that Satan's greatest victories are won when he can cause the fall of a Christian leader, thereby not only destroying that leader's influence for Christ, but also giving "great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme" (2 Samuel 12:14). The devil is a roaring lion, but he doesn't come as such. If he did, the intended victim would flee.
He is, above all, the one "which deceiveth the whole world" (Revelation 12:9), "transformed into an angel of light" (2 Corinthians 11:14). As he did with Mother Eve, the "subtle" one will insidiously appeal to our pride, or our aesthetic sense, or our appetite, or our desire for material things.
At this time, celebrate the birth of our Savior and King, as you continuously fight the battle against the evil around us, knowing full well that Jesus Christ has enabled us to GIT’ER DONE!
Christianity is NOT a spectator sport – JOYEUX NOEL!
VIDEO – I dare you to watch this!
