The Struggle

Keeping faith in God, now that’s the real struggle. And is it the fault of God that we have a problem with faith? For we have proven time and time again that we have very little. And it is a shame really. For Jesus said that if we had faith the size of a mustard seed, we could move mountains. Ah, but, right from the start, we couldn’t even have faith that God wanted the best for us. I mean, all we knew was God, and His glory, and His love for us, but in a few short sentences, the serpent was able to wipe that away, and get us to do the one thing God told us not to. And we gave in because without God there to assure us of His intent, we were VERY quick to lose faith in it. And now, it is magnified because of our removal from Him. And in the world you are born in because of our actions, you are not even told that in reality, you are not really separated. Quite the opposite really, for He put a little of Himself in each one of us. Now, there are those who will tell you, but they are men. And if you are paying attention in your life, you learn that you can’t really trust all of them to tell you the truth. For you see, we are like we always have been, and we have our own agendas. And you will find sadly, that there are very few men , and women of course, who do things just for the benefit of others. They always move to secure their own way first, and will very seldom do things that will put them in peril just to help save another. And man has come to take care of himself first. So, as he sees you struggle, he will very seldom move to help you unless he knows you will win, or he will benefit in some clear way therefore making it worth it for him. But now, if you find yourself in true peril, and it seems you will go down in flames, you will very rarely find one to fight with you, even if the fight you are trying to win is a good noble fight. You see, man has not learned to stand for what he believes in, just in nobility alone. But he is running out of time to decide what he will fight for. Now, luckily for us, there have been great men who stood alone when no one would stand with them. And when their cause was great enough, and their faith in it also, they prevailed. And those who saw them and witnessed it, have come to know that when a man believes in something noble and just, and stands in the way of those who would destroy it for ther own gains, he rarely seems to stand alone. He will gain unwavering strength, that he did not have at the beginning of the fight. And as his enemies become weary of the fight in the face of his stamina, his allies will grow as they gain faith in the cause, and the man that fights for it. And then there will be the legend, of a great man that stood against all odds when no one else would, and won. And if the cause is great enough, even if he is lost to the battle, others will take his place in honor of him, and continue the fight.
Now we have had the example of such a man. And he has decided to set his struggle against the strongest enemy. And we have all heard of the first round in his fight. But, since we weren’t there, we have to go on faith. Faith that our fellow man has not lied to us about the story. Now fortunately here, the man was so great, that those for, and against him, have written about his struggle to change man’s way of thinking. And so, we know that he was, and what he battled against, and how he battled against his enemy. But now, WHO he really was, and who he battled for, well, the propagandist are still working on you on that. And so, his enemies say~ “He was a great man that said great things, but that is all. And he should be admired for that and nothing more, that he was a great man, and possibly a prophet of God.” But now, his followers say, “He is the Messiah, who saved us to God, by shedding his blood, and covering our sins with it in the sight of God. And he would save all those who would believe in him, for those that would not, do not except the salvation. But because his love is so great for us, he will even give them a chance. For he knows the struggle that is life, and he knows the enemies that move against you. He also knows that your real enemies cannot defeat you, and that there best weapons are nothing more than distractions that are used to occupy your time, and remove you from the true battle.
In our life, we will have many struggles, but they are all really part of one great battle. The struggle to be all that we can, and are meant to be. To be like God. And in this quest, we are confronted, indeed brought into battle by, our great adversary, Satan. But he comes to us as Lucifer, the lightbarer, the first angel created by God. He was created to be our teacher. And so, as we contimplate this, we have to know that God knows all, and made no mistakes in His creations. And so as God created Lucifer, and He loved what He created, knowing fully what he was, and what he would be. And as we think about it, we have to come to the realization that Lucifer, the great Satan, has indeed been our teacher. And we have listened to him. And so, we must ask ourselves, why would God create a being, matched only by Himself in power and greatness, if He knew he would be against us. Not only that, but he never warned Adam and Eve to be weary of the snake. He gave them the one rule, and told them that if they ate the fruit of the tree, they would die. And he let the snake into the garden, knowing what he would do. Now, we have already went over that all Adam and Eve had to do was listen to God. And that would have seemed an easy task. But, as we see now, the easiest task will become the greatest struggle without God.
Now again, why? Why did God put us in this situation? He knew us, and He knew Lucifer, and so He knew what would happen. Was this a test? I say no. We may not have known what we were doing, but God did. And He, knowing all things knew what we will do in any situation. Now, at the time, we were with God, and He was our teacher. And all that He taught us was good. Now unfortunately, good was not only all there was for us to learn. And the proof that God wanted us to learn all things, not only good, comes in the fact that He created a teacher for us, other than Himself, even though we were created to be with Him. So, if He were testing us, we have a hint that He already knew the outcome of the test, and we would indeed fail it. But as we have also went over before, how would we appreciate the good God taught us, without seeing and learning the alternatives to the good. And see, there, God can’t help us. He will show us nothing bad. No, we have to come upon it ourself. And so there, we have a different teacher. And so since Satan will do all that God will not, what better teacher to have in learning the alternatives to good. And so good is usually straight forward and simple. But it is disquised and hidden by the bad, that is always dressed up as the better way.
Now so, we have went for what we were told was the better way. And we have chosen it even though God had told us not to. So, in essence, we have chosen to struggle. And we have declared our reason for it was to be like God. So we must now come to fully understand the struggle, and know that in essence it is a war. A war between good and bad, right and wrong. And since knowing the difference is the key, we have an enemy that is apt at making right seem wrong, and wrong seem right. And he and his allies, which are many, are best at deception. He is so good at it as a matter of fact, and we have been away from our God so long, he can even trick you into believing that he is God. And he has made the struggle complex and seemingly unwinable. But God knows who you are, and what you are capable of, for He made you. And as I said before, He knows what you will do. But He wants you to know, and find out what you are truly made of. See, if you look at it that way, not knowing the outcome as God does, it will seem that God made a terrible gamble. Because in this war, He has chosen, indeed made us, for the pupose of winning the battle. And so far, we have lost every skirmish. We have slipped into enemy hands, and he has had his way with us. And many of us will now stand with the enemy, and he seems to be gaining the upper hand. But you see, we humans are like that. We like to let our enemy fully show himself, and what he is capable of. And we can see who of us will fall away, and how far the enemy will go. But just as he thinks he has us, and he is at the top of the mountain, that is when we show our full strength, and will begin to tear him down. For as the enemy rises in strength, so does his pride and his lack of respect for his enemy.
Our enemies are at that place. They have placed one at the top of the mountain, and are ready to show their full hand. They have no respect for you or God. But they have forgotten also that God has placed Himself among us, and fights with us. He has thrown His lot in with us, however it may turn out. And Satan has so far, exposed only our weaknesses. But I have been given to set him straight. He has exposed our weaknesses, and shown us to be lacking. But I will now show him our strength, and he will again come to know it. Our love for God! You see, he gave up on God, and turned against Him. And he has shown God that he can get men to turn against Him as he had. But, not all men! And God just wants to know someone stands with Him. Even in the face of death. Even when it seems all may be lost. Just someone who will stand by his side no matter what. Even if they think they could never live up to what God wants them to be, they would still stand with Him, and trust in Him that He is the way. God has such men. And they have been working on the enemy while looking as thought they are not a threat. And God has given them certain strengths and abilities. And they have been among the enemy, and now know him fully. And so God has told me to tell those men, that it is time. It is time to show the enemies of God, that it is them who have been led into the trap. It is time to expose what is truly going on in this world. It is time to reveal how deep the conspiracy against God really is, and how far the enemy has gone to hide himself from you. And when I am done, you will know the real enemies of God. What their weapons are, and what they have been fighting to achieve. And it will be up to you to move against it, or join the enemy camp. But either way, the battle lines must be drawn. And in my next post, I will draw them out clearly. And I will say this to you: In the art of war, sometimes it’s the soldier you don’t see, that is fighting the biggest battle.
