I’m doing a few things on this site, I’m trying to make it somewhat more fun and interactive. Secondly, I’m trying to get around to my Lenten book “review”, and now I am putting a word out there for my friend, Christie.
Christie’s pretty cool, and I know her through my interactions with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. She is going on a missions trip this summer to Sierra Leone, a small African nation north of Liberia, and South and West of Guinea. She will be heading up a new out-reach team supported through both the Evangelical Fellowship of Sierra Leone, and WorldVenture. I don’t know to much, and I cannot offer her much since I don’t pay with anything other than money. I’m not soliciting you for funds, don’t worry!
However, I’m on her weekly prayer request list, and I might be posting those requests up here starting sometime in June when her trip begins.
This time I want this site to be a bit more interactive for this post for two reasons: One, I feel like y’all need to be pulled out of the woodwork, and secondly I just finished a term paper and do not feel like typing in an overly formal manner.
How would you like to see Satan punished in the end times? Com’on get however foolish and silly, or as vengeful and righteous as you want.
I want to see him go like this (among other ways):
To orient you towards the passage, Anderson (in The Bondage Breaker) is discussing how we need to percieve the Accuser, as being defeated once and for all, and as Christ as our Advocate – and God as the Judge. This courtroom scene continues day and night for every child of God. Satan persists in pointing out our faults and weaknesses to God and demands that He zap us for being less than perfect (p 153). My reaction: Daddy, daddy, can I watch Satan get zapped by the BugZapper on Your front porch?! *zzzt!*
John 4:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 16:7-11 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not in me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
John 16:33 In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
John 18:30 It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
John 19:41-41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid. There laid they Jesus.
[Notice that the curse and Satan’s reign began in a garden, and ended in a garden?]
