Let That Dragon’s Head Roll!

Friends,

“The dragon’s head was severed! We stood in victory and cheered. But –wait?! As we stared in horror, the grotesque beast moved! –and as it began to clamor to its feet, three –no five!– heads were growing in the place of the one we’d just chopped off! ‘Grab your Swords!’ somebody yelled, and we were at it again! –slicing the air with sounds of speed and conviction…”

Isn’t that the way it is, Warrior for Christ? We think we’ve slain that Dragon of Deception that attempted to slither into our soul, but lo! –several more just raise their ugly heads to attack! And –incessantly!

When will it end? When will we get relief? There’s ONE true path to Heaven; yet we find that thousands of paths invite us there!

So, someone muses, “What to believe…? Hmmm… The Bible says that all these other ways lead to one final place: Destruction.

And the Bible says there are TWO destinations…

So, let’s see… MANY paths… And not ONE destination… TWO.

TWO?! Oh, dear… Someone told me that the destination of ALL paths lead to ONE place –that being, Heaven. Yea, I don’t know how that makes sense, but it’s a good belief, an easy belief, a belief of tolerance. Tolerance is good, right? Even the tolerance of error. …Well… Right?”

Isn’t this how many, in this era of postmodernism, reason themselves into deception and lies? They believe: “Truth is relative and it matters not if one’s truth is actually error and gets one killed or maimed or ruined or sick or hurt or lost or destroyed or damned (but there’s no damnation anyway, even for rapists, murderers, etc), because… they at least sincerely believed their truth to be true.”

Huh? The statement isn’t even rational. But, they applaud it like it is, nonetheless.

What astonishes me further, is not that the worldly people swallow this philosophy, this “god” called “Sincerity”, but that masses of so-called “Bible-believing Christians” do. Many now admit, that though they themselves trust Jesus as their Savior, those who are committed to finding God through other religions or practices, will ALSO be embraced by Jesus. Their reasoning? –“Because they were sincere in their search.”

No. The Kingdom of Light allows for only ONE path to the Destination of Reward (Heaven). Jesus says in John 14:6 that He, Jesus, is the ONLY way to God. In John 10:9 Jesus states that He is the ONLY gate to salvation. Acts 4:12 says that there is absolutely NO other name, but the name of Jesus, on which to call for salvation. And that salvation, (the escape from God’s wrath against all who are disobedient (Eph. 5:6) and against sin and all who cause it –Matt. 13:41,42), as Jesus says in Luke 13:2,3 must include repentance.

Furthermore, in Matt. 7:14 Jesus explains that the gate is small and the road narrow that leads to eternal life, and that actually only a very FEW find it. This is in complete opposition to what the world, including most of the “Christian world” are now chanting. They insist that MANY will be brought into the Kingdom of Heaven. But according to the Bible, they are dead wrong.

The Kingdom of Darkness allows for ALL the other paths, promising deceptively the same destination. “Take your pick,” its ruler coos, “Yes, the path of least resistance, if you like. Ease… Oh, the path of fame? How about power? Yes, there’s the path of lust-indulgence. Wealth? –Sure. It’s your choice. Yes, choose your Self –your importance, your pleasure… Yes, yes. Yes! ‘All this I will give you… IF you will bow down and worship me.'” (Matt. 4:9)

Beware, Soldier and Servant of the Most High! Beware, Foolish Wanderer! The grotesque dragon –disguised as “an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14)– is actually “that ancient serpent, the Deceiver of Nations.” (See Rev.12:9/ 13:14/ 20:2,3,8 & John 8:44 & 2 Cor. 4:4 & 2 Thes. 2:10.)

Follow him and you will NOT be traveling the one and only path of TRUE light. The false light may shine bright and beautiful for a while, but it is a mirage that will soon pale and dim… until its victim is walking in pitch black darkness –LOST, ALONE, and AFRAID… only to hear that creepy little chuckle that only a cooing, luring dragon can make… –right before he sinks his teeth in for the final fatal bite!

“Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.” (1 Cor. 10:12) “Be self-controlled and ALERT. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. [Who will he tear apart and eat? It will be those who don’t take the advice of this verse:] Resist him, standing FIRM IN THE FAITH…” (1 Peter 5:8,9) And the only way to do that, is to study, know, and consistently restudy The Truth.

So grab that “sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God… [and] put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” (Eph. 6:17,11) “For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword…” (Heb. 4:12) for “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of this world. On the contrary, they have DIVINE POWER to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” (2 Cor. 10:4,5)

Do it, Warrior! Slay that Deceptive Dragon in your mind! –In your life! Do it for yourself and your family! Shout in his ugly ear, “The Blood of Jesus ransoms us!” Raise the banner of the Word! Get up and fight –in none other than the power of the Holy Spirit –the Spirit of the True and Only God!

Okay. Done. Well, –until the next head grows. Then chop! Again. –And again. –And again. –And all the way until Jesus comes! Yes! We will never give up! –We will ALWAYS keep swinging that Sword!

Okay, Friends…
Be strong.
And alert.
Love,
Rachel
