Be Sober; Be Vigilant, Because Your Adversary the Devil, as a Roaring Lion, Walks About, Seeking Whom He May Devour-1 Peter 5:8

Seeking Someone to Devour
By Dr. Lindy Diffenbaugh, D.D.
It is true in so many ways, that those who populate the Earth in this day, walk in a deep spiritual slumber. They are surely awake to the reality that there is great financial lack on the Earth, that sickness and disease are real, and there seems to be no long-term solutions to these chronic disruptions because in fact, the majority of the government is not supporting those who elected them, nor are they working to restore the Goodness and Greatness of the Great Nation of America!
In fact, in the midst of all of the national neglect and chaos, the situation at home is compounded by the fact that our children are unruly, undisciplined, and by and large they are not doing well academically, or getting along with others at school or in the home environment etc., etc., etc.
While the parents of these children continually work 2-3 jobs to feed their kids, make house and car payments, and then they come home to cook and clean and bathe the kids; and as you can imagine, they genuinely struggle with the enormity of their lifestyle.
It is, very possible, in fact very probable, that if they did not have to work all day, and they often work at home through the evening hours, yet parents that adore thier children, would certainly take the time to indulge in the greater opportunity to spend time with their kids, help them with their homework, watch television with them, and pray with them before they go to bed. In other words they could give their children love, peace, and maybe even joy in their household!
These issues, and many more just like them, are evident and real in the lives of most people; in fact, such issues are continually staring “we the people” in the face, every day and every waking moment of their lives!
In the face of complications, obstacles, and disruptive intrusions, invading their lives, there are Few “Breakthrough Solutions” to grab hold of and remedy the periols of their life and situation! Unfortunately there are limited strategies, or even simple solutions offered, as to how to overcome the demands of their everyday lives, in the face of the above- mentioned debilitating issues.
Instead, they are looking at the trials ahead of them, and while they feel the stress, strain, and the resulting physical and emotional pain that overcomes them and tears their heart and soul into millions of pieces. In fact, they live it, they feel it, and they dread it when they lay their heads on the pillow at night, in an effort to get at least a little bit of restful sleep before they have to get up in the morning and do it all over again.
Unfortunately, the restful sleep, more often than not, does not usually materialize. Tossing and turning seems to be their lot throughout the night and, sometimes into the morning. Then what happens in the morning?
They have to get the kids out of bed, feed them breakfast, and get them ready for school! If that is not difficult enough, after they drop off the kids, they must report to work and present as “ready to go at it” workers while on the go.
Who Would You Think is Responsible For Such Pain and Chaos?
In fact, with all of the chaos that mentioned above, I believe that it is possible, in fact probable that Satan, himself has engineered the way for the above loss of control, that leads to the deficits that are, in many ways tragic and debilitating, that generally speaking, people do not believe in the Certain Reality That Satan is Real, and He is working in stealth fashion, to release such atrocities into their hearts, minds, lives, souls, and spirits.
We live in a day when folks love to chant, “The Devil Made Me Do It!”—yet their chant is nothing more than a joke that brings certain laughter to themselves and anyone else that might be listening!
Tragically, Most People Do Not Reckon With The Certain Truth That The Devil is Real, and Day After Day He Deceives Them, As He Prepares To Submerge Them Into The Burning Flames of Hell Fire and Damnation!
If, in fact, these fail to understand that when their life is over, it is, “eternally over.!” There will be no course correction; there will not be three doors to choose from in order to determine where they will end up at the end of their days. Likewise, Oprah Winfrey will not be standing at the Pearly Gates Declaring, You Go To Heaven and You God To Heaven, and You Go to Heaven!! It simply will not play out that way at all!
In fact I believe that it is Time for Every Living Member of Humanity to Begin to Reckon with the fact that, There is a God in Heaven Who Created Them and Who Loves Them, and in Fact He Wants To Meet Them In Heaven, and Speak the Words, “Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant! Now Enter Into The Fullness of My Glory!” Beyond That, The Only Other Choice that you Have is the Raging Flames of Eternal Hell Fire!
Choose You This Day Who You Will Serve!!!
