“Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of Peace shall be with you.” Philippians 4:9
What is the big deal about peace anyway? And how did Paul (the writer here) know I would get it? It’s not like a virus or something…or maybe it is. Wait, peace is contagious, really contagious! Wow, I think some of it just got in me! This is amazing!
It’s true. So true the Devil is trying to stop Peace from spreading. How do I know that?
Well here is a Memo from the Devil to his cohorts:
Attention: Angels of Evil,
“New evidence suggests that yes, peace is contagious. The condition happens suddenly and spreads quickly. Watch out for symptoms such as: restful gratitude, peaceful sighs of happiness, and a dangerous swelling of the Inner Man. Having studied and researched verses like Philippians 4:9 we’ve figured out how human’s contract this wistful bliss. They study the Apostle Paul who, as we know, had one of the most infectious cases in all the Grace Administration. He was known for random displays of healing, singing in prison, and spreading this condition abroad, even making it across all Asia Minor in less than two years!
We’ve tried for years to cure it and scorch the condition from existence by snaring people with respirators of fear, worry and doubt. Our research concludes that these keep all peace away. We have promoted phobias of germs and give out hand-sanitizer like candy. We keep people desperate with the fear of disease, financial ruin and failure. But fellow devil spirits and enemies of God; peace has penetrated our defenses again. Though we’ve tried to rid it of its grip, it has spread across the world through the internet. We’ve found that once people get a taste of the peace that passes understanding, they don’t go back to the fear and chaos we’ve wrought in the world. We’ve noticed a dangerous spike in peace when they study Romans – Thessalonians. It is running rampant through the homes of those who’ve memorized Philippians 4:7-9 because they stop thinking about our lies and fear and trade it for God and His truth. This must be stopped. Distract them with problems and circumstances. Throw fiery darts to keep them down. Get them prepping for dooms day!
Watch out for the people who are prepping for peace instead of for the doom we’ve so carefully cultivated. These are the people who arrogantly go on living the abundant life, and boldly declare God the Author of Peace. Euphoria is becoming rampant among them. The public’s trust in God’s source of peace and power is spreading too rapidly. Doom and fear is loosing its grip on the slippery salvation and they are teaching their children and educating their grandchildren about it. If you have ever served me in evil, you will go out and wreak havoc on the world like never before. Destroy the balance God produced with one wave of His gift of Holy Spirit. Talk people out of speaking in tongues and the other eight manifestations because peace is a fruit of the spirit and operating the gift of Holy Spirit takes out our forces for evil. We must control their behavior with the PC police. Make it un-cool to talk about God. Ban the Bible from as many countries as we can. Cause earthquakes, floods and watch out for those who know how to stop us with prayer and imprisionment. We don’t want to lose anymore of our side. We’re starting to dwindle in numbers so we must become more influential in the government, in healthcare, in banking, in the economy. Make them depend on us to supply their need instead of God supplying their need. Trap, confuse, cause strife and depression. Peace has gotten too strong and out of control. Go into the churches with error, don’t forget to leave some truth so they’ll believe it, but then take out all belief in the power. Once you’ve rid them of the power they can stop you from filling their church pews with cancer, problems and divorce. Divide, deceive, destroy their unity and then we shall conquer. Peace must be stopped.
The Father of Lies
P.S. Tomorrow we’ll discuss the dangerous weapon and potency of God’s love.
Now, read this memo from the Author of Peace.
“What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? [It is] God that justifieth.
Who [is] he that condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again,
who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
WHO shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
NAY! In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:31-39
God mentions “peace” four-hundred and twenty nine times in the Bible. He must want to prepare us for the onslaught. We should prepare for “peace” with the passion of a Doomsday Prepper.
God Bless You Today!
