The presence of evil in this world

Sin and death are direct consequences of the disobedience of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  We inherited the consequences of their sin as the earth is a sinful place as a result of their disobedience. 

The Greek word for plans is inner intentions/inner thoughts.  What Satan does is he wants us to believe the lies of his inner intention/inner thoughts.  He came to mislead, create lies, to keep people in ignorance and to dominate, manipulate and intimidate God's people.  By choosing to live in ignorance and denial God's people are being destroyed by Satan as he infiltrates their lives unknowingly.  Satan wants to create doubt in your mind as he is the enemy of peace.  It is his intention to confuse you.  He runs his campaign by first starting to tempt you.  When he accomplishes that, the next step for his is to deceit you.  Once he deceived you he will start accusing you.  What you need to do is to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ and the Holy Spirit of God that indwells you, will guide you into the truth.  Ownership is never at stake but your daily victory is.

Eph. 6:12 "Our struggle is not against flesh and blood (people), but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."

PS:  Please pray for Sandy to be set free on Friday the 10th of February 2012.
