The enemy hates and aims at...
1. Jesus Christ, yes the God-man, such a beautiful Person!
2. The Holy Angels -- I say holy cuz there's a lot of perverted ones and He is that way to the max. A third of em rebelled and fell. No savin' em ever -- they are whack forever and know they'll fry in hell. That place was made for them, not originally made for people though sadly many opt to go there. And God can't make them or anyone.. not go there.
3. The Nation of Israel, yes, the Jewish people are part of God's plan (so check out all the promises He made to them).
4. The spiritually reborn Christian (Are you a real one? Yeah you come number four -- but listen, you indeed are God’s friends so stay close. He loves you and wants to use you with your gifts! Christ lives inside of real Christians. Why? Cuz they repented, trusted and invited Him in. See John 1:12-13, and chapter 3). Again, is that you--are you a believer? If ya have trials, tests or come under spiritual attack, don't be discouraged.. cuz greater is He that is inside of you than your fallen-angel-enemies in this sin-cursed world. If God be for you, who can be against you--the Lord will win, beloved!
5. Then, he just wants to wipe out all humans who were made in the image of God (yup, though many via neglect or ignorance or rejecting Jesus have literally made themselves enemies of God. We all have limited time to respond to the real Gospel--life here is short). Yes, these listed above are the enemy's aim, and in that order. Kill people slow or fast, that's his lust and goal, but he likes to faster over slower. Look around and tell me how he's doing. .Kind of different now.. I love the people in this world. God helps this saved sinner (me) love sinners and saints. Need Him to. Sure, when Jesus comes inside He helps you loathe what you used to love (the Bible, prayer, church time, real Christians) and love what you used to loathe -- the sometimes pleasure Bowl sin that's yes, fun for a season.
Do you feel like you’ve gone so far, like way too far.. that Christ’s love can’t catch up to you?Have you been cussin' gobs, a drag to be around, and filled with anxiety or fear? Jesus is our rest and tells us.. ~ Matthew 11:29-30
~ James 3:6
So small, the tongue, yet so potentially destructive.
