God delivered the world to the Devil (Luke 4)

    In an effort to befriend the world when the bible says not to, "know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?" "Come out from among them and be ye separate," today's carnal christians try to win friendship with the world with: "God doesn't torment people, the devil does," but countless scripture says the opposite, that he even deceives people to damn them: "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." (Bible)

    These christians care more about keeping the respect of the world, than they do about the damned's fate, not caring enough about them to tell them how angry God is with them, so they can be reconciled to God. The bible talks about lukewarm christians of the endtimes who make God sick: " So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;" This is currently every christian reading this article, calling their friendship with the world "sharing the love of Christ."

    They care more about keeping the world's respect and enjoying the pleasures of their spouse several times a day, than they do about the words of scripture, when Jesus constantly said "What saith the scripture?" and Paul said for Christian couples to "come apart with prayer and fasting" when sexually unrestrained. You're not living in ancient Israel in the old testament times where they could celebrate their sex lives; it is a bible-scoffing Satan's world (Luke 4) where people who don't befriend the world don't get mates, and here you are enjoying your's several times a day. God has delivered the world to the devil according to Luke ch 4, and Satan is called the "god of this world" in II Cor. 4:4: "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not;"

    So, those who sexually, romantically, or maritally benefit from Satan's world the most tend to have a more difficult time believing the negative truths of scripture because all it does is condemn them. As long as demons and Satanic powers can make people think everything is "all good" with the Satanic world, perhaps by pairing them up with a mate, he convincingly renders them incapable of accepting the negativity of scripture, when the truth is that they are so Satanically blessed and wicked, they cannot give it up in exchange for a future kingdom of righteousness where no one scoffs scripture. That's how the devil blinds the minds of men.

    "If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." Luke 14:26

    This world is damned.

      You have some truly good points there, sa282h.
      Although, not "every Christian reading" your article is in friendship with the world.....
      You're right,  the world is damned!
      But there's a Savior ready to make you and anyone who makes the right choice a child of His,  therefore no longer "of this world".
      Amen to the message of REPENTANCE following conviction!   I agree the world needs more Christians crying out that message, like John the Baptist did,  like Jesus did.

    I must say after that I see you as a poor little anal retentive full of fear and bulldust you have read after being indoctrinated in to religion.
    I find it hard to see a person here, you have just about buried yourself in your own ego.

    How the ungodly see REAL Christians:

    "we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day." - Paul, to Christians, 1 Cor 4:13 (bible)

    It is hard to see what truth is. There seems to be some truth in the original post..  BUT>> According to scripture; God did not deliver the world to Satan. The Hebrew nation was delivered unto the hands of the "Little Horn" for a time, times and half a time. That began when the Hebrew Nation was dispersed through out the rest of the world (138 AD) After that the FALSE  RELIGION was giver 42 months to Blaspheme the word of GOD.  It is written in scripture that during this time the wise will reject the teachings of the FALSE  RELIGION. That the people will call the things that are good; Bad. and the things that are bad they will call GOOD. If possible even the very elect will be fooled.
         What if  all of this started long long time ago????
       What really is TRUTH ????????  I believe in the God of Abraham and that  Jesus died for our sins.   God said to NOT  JUDGE THAT WE NOT BE JUDGED.  Too many Churches teach us to judge. We do not even have the right to judge ourselves.
         What IF  ???

    Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures.

    Read Luke 4, which I referred to several times. It teaches very plainly that God delivered the world to the Devil, who puts people in power:

    "[5] And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
    [6] And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
    [7] If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine."

          That was a very magical period in history.Jesus had just died and promised to return in their generation. That Hebrew nation ceased to exist as was foretold in prophesy. They had received the end of Days for their favor with God and had come to the end of days as a Nation.  Satan was bound for a thousand years some time after that to be loosed for a little season. The beast that was given 42 months to blaspheme has been doing just that for the past 1600 plus years and here we are????

      So your petty little god won't play unless he is worshiped? The biblical god is a psychopath! smile

        Indeed. To be FEARED. You never considered that a powerful, omniscient "psychopath" could be controlling reality? Who says this is impossible? Indeed it is the case.

        God allowed a man to put to death his own virgin daughter in exchange for God's help in battle. Virgin sacrifice, for gain!

        Read the Old Testament.

        Satanists are not 'psychotic' enough to come up with such rituals. They borrow them from the powerful hebrew God.

        A powerful fearful entity controls the fabric of our reality, and he is the Alpha and Omega, beginning and end.

        It's not hard to come to terms with this if you believe that God is righteous.

        And if you don't fear him enough to analyze his ways more carefully when he appears unrighteous, only to find out you were tricked and God is indeed righteous, then get ready for his judgment.

          If there was a god, it would be a god, not a psychopath!

            A psychopath cannot be deemed a God?

            I'm sorry, but I know who controls this reality.

              Deemed a god by who?
              higher consciousness is not considered neurotic or psychotic, and why would a god be worse than his subjects?
              The whole story is a pile!

    Uhhh.... big_smile  I see judgmental, elitist, people who twist scripture to justify hate and enable an attitude of indifference and malice towards those they are commanded to love and minister to. The very notion that an omnipotent God, who stands unopposed would grant a rebellious angel dominion over his most beloved creations, stands in defiance of God's love and gift of free will to man alone. This kind of backwards finger pointing and shifting of responsibility to the devil is man's greatest failure and folly. You are your own greatest adversary and source of temptation. You stand in opposition to God when you trumpet words and religions over substance and deed. You are the devil and anti-Christ, and man rules this earth. grow a backbone and assume some responsibility for your own actions for a change instead of blaming the worlds problems on a Devil, Adam was a chump that passed the buck. As a man he should have corrected Eve and made amends to God, but his ego got in the way and he sought power instead of integrity that was his sin. What kind of man disobeys his father then blames it on a talking snake and his wife?
