Angels of light

Beware of the angels of light that invade and inhabit your world and your soul. These are the evil beings that appear beautiful and attractive, but they only wish to devour you.

These angels prey upon the weak. Those who desire a world devoid of suffering are drawn to these false angels who promise a new age of glitter and joy but no substance. There is no effort to develop character, only illusion.

For others, the angels are the obvious deceits of power, sex, money or drugs.

But the most dangerous are the angels of light that dwell among the religious. If your religion is devoid of mercy, you are being seduced by a demon in disguise. Does your doctrine blind you? Do not be deceived.

Christ came to show us that life is always messy, always bloody – yours, mine, everybody’s. You are not guaranteed any special treatment or privilege if you follow him. On the contrary, you might end up being hated or persecuted or – depending on where you live – you might even be killed.

The Messianic promises are much greater than we realize. But to see them clearly we must get down from our spiritual high horse and sit at the Lord’s feet.

Do you judge the homosexual or the atheist? Do you condemn the adulterer, the addict or the criminal? Or do you present Christ to them?

True mercy understands others at their level. This miracle only occurs if we let God work in us and through us thus allowing our righteousness to exceed that of the scribes and pharisees (Matthew 5:20).

What is it that should outrage the Christian? That someone has never heard of the triumphant work of Jesus Christ upon the cross for all of mankind.

How well we transmit this message depends on knowing these keys to perfection: You are not better – you are forgiven. You are not exalted – you are loved.

Romans 3,24
