~ Throughout the Word of God, the Lord thoroughly explains to us the extensive ongoing battle between goodness and evil. The Word includes the wisdom and instruction for us to be in reflection to the wickedness of our own selves and the entire human race.
It is vital to have a great awareness to the works of evil for many reasons. The reality of a world with ‘free will’ includes the existence of evil, and therefore we’d want to know what we are up against. In an instant, evil spirits can powerfully but very subtly overcome us in such a way that we might not even recognize we have just been overcome by darkness.
The devil will gladly jump on board to enhance our wicked traits and ways, seducing us in such a way that we can ‘suddenly in an instant’ have a complete void to pursue the mission God has laid out for us in life.
Jesus is always there for us in all of life’s tribulations including with the wily ways of the devil.
The wickedness of mankind has to stay alert, focused at all times and prepared for attacks from evil spirits, ready to call out, “Jesus. Come to me, Jesus.”
John 13:2 And supper being ended, the devil now having put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him (Jesus).
