WORSHIP GOD: " Psalm 2 and Proverbs 1:7 reminded me of the wonderful worship song "Holy is the Lord" by Chris Tomlin. Enjoy! "

Thank you for sharing the music video. I love watching those. " Holy Is The Lord " is a great worship song and Chris Tomlin is one of my favorite Christian contemporary music artists. I was blessed to attend one of his concerts.


COMMENTS FROM YOU AND QUESTIONS OF THE DAY: What is your reaction to reading about The Fall in Genesis today? Is it painful to read about The Fall after reading about The Creation yesterday? If Satan was able to deceive Adam & Eve back then, do you think he still deceives people today? What is our remedy from the lies and deception Satan might throw our way? Do you believe reading and studying God's Word on a daily basis might be one remedy? What are some other remedies? (prayer, going to church, being in a small community group with others, etc.?) Do you believe Jesus has saved us from The Fall?..."

I am reminded that Satan is the father of lies. It is not painful for me to read about The Fall though I have certainly had my share of pain in my lifetime because of it. None of us are safe from spiritual deception apart from the God-given spiritual discernment that comes from the Word of God and the wisdom imparted to us by the Spirit of the Lord. Satan is still deceiving people and leading multitudes to Hell with the same old lies today and yet people continue to believe them because they love the lie rather than the truth of God. Whether we like it or not we are engaged in spiritual warfare. The Word of God and prayer is part of that spiritual armour that God has provided us for our protection ( Ephesians 6:17-18 ) and we should avail ourselves of it. I thank my Redeemer the Lord Jesus Christ for saving me and bringing me out of the spiritual darkness of this world and into His marvelous Light. I know that one day, perhaps soon, He is coming back to restore all things. Praise the Lord!

" And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. "

- Revelation 12:9-11 ( kjv )
