Oh most gracious Father, this is the day that you have made and we rejoice in it. Thank you for life, provisions, strength, and guidance and for all your benefits of Salvation through Jesus Christ. Thank you for your mercy and grace in giving us an opportunity to dwell with you forever and never know pain and suffering again. Praise and Honor to You dear Lord!
Revelation 12 says: “Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”
In Mark 3:24, Jesus said “If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.” Satan is not imaginary; he isn’t something people dreamed up just to try to explain the existence of evil. Satan is real, and the Bible makes it clear that he is a powerful (and evil) spiritual being who is absolutely opposed to God and His goodness.”
Devoted followers of Satan’s kingdom are the angels who fell during his rebellion, and the hearts of unregenerate men. The unregenerate men or women are those who reject God’s plan of Salvation through Jesus Christ. Satan’s domain or kingdom is the system that denies the Creator yet praises the things He created. Satan’s kingdom focuses upon hindering the plan of God and manipulating as many Souls as possible to Eternal separation from God.
John 1:12-13 explains, “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
