In case you're wondering if evil is real, perhaps, you need to read the sample introduction of "The Alabaster Angel".
I wrote that "story" and submitted it to Amazon on 30 November 2019.
Strangely enough, those were the days covid was spreading in China.
Of course, I had no idea, as I was writing feverishly, all 22 books on spiritual warfare, in a span of 36 days. It seems I had to finish everything, days before the year ended.
How I did that, only the Holy Spirit of God knows.
In that book above, you will see for yourself how far, and wide, darkness has spread.
Sure, I depicted it as fiction, but sometimes, fiction is more real.
For me, it was real, for it was shown to me in my dreams, on many instances.
Even in my waking time, soon after the first dream -- in a mall, of all places -- the angels showed up in a different "form".
A Catholic nun once wrote a book on angels, saying the warrior angels are so HUGE, we only reach up to their knees.
I can believe that for, oftentimes, in the midst of storms, I can somehow feel a battle "raging" on.
Very aptly, I discovered SCRIPTURE verse today, speaking on the nature of angels:
15 Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up:
16 It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying,
17 Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?
18 Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly:
19 How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?
Job 4:15-19 (King James Version)
That passing and image was so similar to a dream I once had of them, which inspired "The Alabaster Angel".
True angels of God are not to be worshiped, as you shall see on this verse:
8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
Revelation 22:8-9 (KJV)
As you can imagine, that which wishes to be worshiped, is not of the LORD.
And yes, there is the "pretender" to the throne.
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
Isaiah 14:12-17 (KJV)
Evil is real.
It has spread alarmingly everywhere they can be found.
They are here to take us away from the LORD.
They are here to mock the LORD.
Thus, you have to make a stand for yourself.
Are you for, or against God?
Are your human needs more important, than your soul?
Are you having a tough battle with the destroyer, and his minions?
Let Jesus have the last WORD:
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Matthew 4:8-10 (KJV)
I know I wrote an article, "The Destroyer's Devices", last night, but this piece you're reading now, wished to be written early this morning.
