The Daily Word of Righteousness

Preparing the Army of God, #15

Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. (Mark 1:24)

Hell is terrified of the Godhead. You can be sure the fallen angels and demons will use all their wisdom to attempt to insure that the churches do everything except look in humility and simplicity to the Lord Jesus Christ to come and show us what to do.

There is a multitude of voices in the land today. Schemes for saving the lost are being advanced among God's people. The voice of Christ seldom is heard.

However, when Jesus does speak a word or two, it is then that works of eternal value are accomplished. All else is Babylon, the efforts of well-intentioned (and sometimes not so well-intentioned) people to build a tower to Heaven.

The terror of the Holy Spirit indeed has fallen on the realm of Satan. The evil spirits understand well (although they will keep on clinging to people until the last moment possible) that the hour is at hand for the Holy Spirit to heal the sick, cast out devils, raise the dead, and announce the soon coming of the Lord Jesus from Heaven.

They understand also that when Jesus returns, all rebellious and sinful spirits will be forced out of the earth.

Therefore their efforts are one last abandoned revelry before they are cast into the fires that give no light. They are spitefully determined to take with them into the darkness every human being whom they can deceive—especially people who have at one time professed to be believers in Christ.

Knowing that the "inhabitants of the land faint" because of us we are to boldly follow the Lord Jesus and do exactly what He commands. He is leading us toward dominion over all the works of God's hands.

The earth and its people belong to Christ and to those who are coheirs with Christ. Satan and his angels have no claim to the earth or to its inhabitants. The rebellious angels left their appointed places in Heaven. They chose to bring their rebellion into the material realm and to make human beings their slaves. God has permitted them to do this because He is utilizing their sinful works among people for His own His plans and purposes.

Now it is time for Christ with and in His Body to drive the rebellious spirits from the material realm into the spirit realm in which they were created, of which they are a part and in which they lawfully belong.

The wicked spirits will never be allowed back into the light of God's Presence. Rather, they have been assigned to the Lake of Fire for eternity. Theirs is a fearful fate. This is what God has decided and His decision will never be revoked.

Adam was created from the earth. Human beings were created in the earth, they are a part of the earth, and they rightfully and lawfully belong in the earth.

When we die physically we are required to enter the spirit realm because our body is our link to the earth. Our body will be raised from the dead at the coming of the Lord from Heaven. Our spirit and soul will return with Jesus from paradise. Then we shall be able to live once more on the earth.

To be continued.
