And there was a Great War in Heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon (Lucifer), and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world. The devil was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Lucifer became Satan, and the fallen angels became Demons. Many ask, “Why didn’t God just destroy Satan?” The answer is, Sin had entered the world. Sin had entered into the very nature of man through Adams transgression (in Genesis, in the Garden of Eden, Adam ate of the forbidden tree, The Tree of Knowledge). For God to destroy Satan, he would also have had to destroy the man he loved. But God had a better way. He had a way of Redemption. And Christ the Redeemer was on His way!
Hell was not made for man. Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels. But those who do not receive Christ as their Lord and Savior will be sent to Hell, and have their part in the lake of fire. Satan is “the god of this world” he ” has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the Gospel of the Glory of Christ” ( 2 Corinthians 4;4)
One becomes a believer (Christian) by Faith. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10: 17). Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11: 1).
The one true living god convicts our heart. It is through faith we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Once we accept Jesus into our hearts, all things become new and the old is passed away. All our past sins are forgiven because Jesus died on the Cross-of Calvary and the blood he shed makes us pure as snow and holy before God the Father.
During your Christian Walk, each day Satan will attack you. He is a liar and deceiver. He will place doubts in your mind such as, “What makes you think you are saved, you know you want that alcohol or drugs, look at what you have done in the past and you think God is going to forgive you, you are just trash and totally worthless, etc”. Lost family members or past friends may make fun of you. Pray for your lost family members and find new Christian friends.
The Christian faith is about faith in the resurrected Jesus. Jesus of Nazareth, who lived historically on the earth 2000 years ago, made a definite impact on the people of Israel through his teaching and healing ministry. But it is his resurrection and continued intervention in the lives of His followers that has meant that today He has hundreds of millions who believe in Him and trust Him. Today the Holy Spirit is working all over the earth to reveal Jesus to people in different ways, primarily through the Scriptures of the Holy Bible as they are preached and read.
Answer the conviction that God has placed upon your heart. Have faith that there is one true living God, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, his death on the Cross Of Calvary, that he has been resurrected and now sits at the right hand of the Father in heaven. Believe that when Jesus stated hanging from the cross, “IT IS FINISHED”, that his blood cleansed us and made us holy unto God.
You can become a Christian and be given eternal life based upon a child-like faith. All you have to do is truly accept Jesus into your heart. Mean it with all sincerity. The following prayer will help you:
God, I know I am a sinner, and I do not deserve your love or forgiveness. But I know your only begotten son, Jesus, shed his blood and died on the cross for me. Jesus, I ask you into my heart now. I need you for I can’t make it on my own. I need for you to cleanse me and make me whole. I turn my heart and my life over to You. Lead me, guide me, and let me become a child of Yours Father God. Thank you for making me clean and whole. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Peace be unto you. Now that you have turned your life over to God, let the earthly things such as alcohol, drugs, prostitution, bad attitudes, hatred, wrath, lusts, and whatever else your demon may be, leave it at the alter. Don’t pick it back up. Let God handle it and guide you and lead you unto righteousness.
