Know Your Enemy

Most people can recall specific moments in their lives which caused dramatic changes in their perception. Some of these memories are cherished and some we wish we could forget. I can easily recall two things that happened in my life which completely and irrevocably caused change. One was a car accident that gave me amnesia and removed all memories of my life before the age of 18. The other great event was when I came to the understanding that I, not the devil, was in control of my life. I am not diminishing the importance of how Father revealed his great, unconditional love to me, but I had to come to a place of accepting that the devil was a “lesser god.”

One might ask what I mean by “lesser god” and I would just say that my religion taught me that the devil was ‘out to get me.’ He would do ANYTHING to keep me from God and get my soul into Hell. Now, there will be some who agree with that thought and ask how anyone could believe differently. Yet, there will be some who laugh and say, “How silly, how could anyone believe that?” All I can say is that I lived the first 45 years of my life in fear of the devil and what he was doing to me. Yes, I knew that God was bigger and more powerful, but I was taught that the devil was almost as powerful as God and his one goal was to torment me, along with all mankind. After all, if we was able to defeat God’s plans for my life then he was “all powerful” in his own way. This is why I referred to the devil as a “lesser god.”

It is only when we rid ourselves of old religious mind-sets we are able to move into the abundance Jesus came to give. (John 10:10). It would befit one to not spend time and energy trying to disprove what is revealed in this months teaching. Instead, if you see the life you desire within the thoughts Stacy and I have shared, be noble and search the scripture with all readiness of mind to find what is true. (Acts 17:11) For, “You were once darkness, but now you are the light of the Lord, walk as children of the light, for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.” (Eph. 5:9-10)
