How is man reacting?:


kjv@Matthew:17 and kjv@Luke:9 places this event the day after the Transfiguration

Faithless generation is nearly always brought up in the context that Christ would only for so long be here with us as well as suffering us.

The nature of a evil spirit is not to cohabit with a hospitable host, it is always to destroy the host. Satan himself intends only to steal harm and destroy. Why we think any good would be intended or that we could just get along or that they seek to replace the goodness of God with a goodness of their own is completely unfounded given the scriptural evidence. The temptation is that they could lead us into being as gods not the reality, the reality is that they despise us and what we represent in their severed relationship to God; the plans God had for us are the original cause for their fall and damnation.

Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
