MORNINGTIME 2850
 
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished IN YOUR BRETHREN THAT ARE IN THE WORLD. But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5:6-11. The part of this verse that reads, "in your brethren that are in the world", can be read 2 ways. The first is, "in your Christian Brothers and Sisters who are also out there in the world", and the second is, "in your worldly family of human beings who are also under satanic attack". Either way, Satan is on the attack wanting to try to take back any Christian he can, AND attack unbelievers to try to be sure that they stay his and don't "fall" into the Hands of Christ. Satan is greedy, he isn't going to sit around and wait for "his" to die and go to Hell, no, he's on the attack against EVERYONE to get back, or keep, all he can, just so Christ can't have them. Here's the difference. Satan is on a leash and his attacks against Christians, those who Belong to Christ, only drives them closer TO Christ. This includes ALL "lost" sheep still coming TO Christ, and Christ will lose NONE of His. ALL LOST SHEEP WILL BE FOUND BY CHRIST! And Satan's attacks against his, the worldly goats who will never be saved, only drives them further from Christ and more into The World. Remember, BY THEIR OWN CHOICE, GOATS WILL NEVER BE SAVED. Everyone's "destiny" was already known by the Lord, long before time began. Our Job is to pray for and talk to EVERYONE, in Obedience to Christ, because we don't know who will, and who won't, be saved, and, Be Blessed.
