"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." ~ Revelation 12:9. And verse 12: "Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time." ~KJV. Folks, this sounds simple enough, and it IS easily understandable! There is no hidden rhyme or reason lurking in this scripture. Is it any wonder for anyone with an average IQ that all the woes, stress, turmoil and wickedness on earth is out of control and WILL get much worse??? And the reason for it is: STD [Satan the Devil]. Roughly, the term 'Satan' means rebel or resister, and devil means slanderer or liar... and both fit the Wiley old snake in the grass [OR TREE]. Just as God has His faithful, servants on earth-- so does Satan. Paul goes on to say that we should not marvel that even many so-called 'leaders' of "Christian churches" are being hijacked by Satan's ministers-- appearing as "ministers of light." This is why I continue to beat my drum... explaining that we NEED to KNOW, read and study the Bible so that WE are not misled by these dark side ministers -- and I could name a few well known and popular, RICH, "pastors" who have pied pipered thousands of good people onto the highway to hell, and also said hurtful things about Israel--God's Chosen ones! See: Genesis 12:3. Even some of us Christians are being misled right now-- so skillful are Satan's people! Beware, dear friends. Now is not the time to sleep or party down.
FaceBook has many great sites where savvy, Spirit- filled Christians study and explain the deeper things revealed in God's Word, and I visit those places and comment from time to time. They will not let 'purpose driven' false prophets spill their evil lies at those chosen sites either, and I like that. Ignorance is one thing-- but after plenty of true enlightenment, council, and help from the group-- people have to admit that they don't have a solid foundation from the Bible... or leave the site if they persist in spreading lies and misinformation. I will share some of these sites later.
Well, I have taken a closer look at my Right front [passenger side] tire and concluded that the tread is too worn down to last this Winter, and so I aim to sell something I have to get the two front tires mounted, and quick. That one bad tire might make me land in a ditch, or what ever, and so I have a major priority now. 'Tis the season to travel safely, and tires are a top priority of mine, but I need $500 ! Ouch..but I want them all to match the new rear tires. It's now time to get the last minute chores, repairs done and get ready for some snow in WI. I wonder what kind of Winter we will have this year...Hmmmm.
I called the North Chicago VA about some meds today and they told me that all their computers have been down for a while-- and NOTHING IS MOVING! Well, isn't that a sorry state of affairs-- AGAIN! No back up system, and the disabled Veterans must go with out life saving medicine! And people want obama-care...LOL? Ha! Seems to me that everything the Gov't touch turns into a dog pile. Just my humble opinions, guys. But I have been watching and dealing with these dudes for the past 30 years and have not noticed much progress... sorry. And the beat goes on.
I intend to take a good friend to the local stores to buy some good Wisconsin CHEESE, and some for me too. A little cheese in your sandwich makes it taste good! I think that moderation is the key, but when I get to a certain point/ or weight, I just quit eating, to drop in weight.
I guess that I will retire early again to get some proper rest, and maybe I can get an early work out at the Gym in. If I can exercise/ and lift weights at the YMCA, I hope that my sore back will heal up and feel better. I love that whirl pool, sauna and steam bath too!! I see more 'older' folks at the Gym so I don't feel lonely... lol.
In revelation 16 John sees three unclean spirits come out of the false prophet, the beast and the dragon. Could the dragon be an extraterrestrial/ angel or even a physical embodiment of Satan himself?
