As I was sitting in church, yesterday, contemplating a great battle that was won almost two thousand years ago, I was struck yet again by character of God and His followers – as opposed to Satan and his followers. The Great High King of the Universe became a landless peasant, washed our feet, took upon Himself our sins and then died a sinner’s death… for His enemies.
When I sat there and thought about that, I was impressed by the difference between ourselves and those who follow Lucifer. We seek humility. They seek pride. We worship the God of Peace. They worship the god of war. We are called to love and die for our enemies. They are called to hate them. God calls us sheep. They are wolves.

Luciferians and Christians
I only started my study of the followers of Lucifer in the Summer of 2012. Until then, I thought of them as merely a loose bunch of degenerates working to further their own, private interests. But, all of that changed when I stumbled across unmistakeable signs of an organized worship of Lucifer.
Is there really a ‘church’ of Lucifer?
There really is, but it is a mirror image of the Christian Church. Luciferians worship in secret, while Christians worship in the open. They seek wealth, while we seek to give it away. They seek power in this world, while we have given up our own power – for a world to come. They perfect the power of death, while we perfect the power of Life.
It really is the difference between light and darkness, life and death.
Chinese Christian Example
Just ten days ago, I wrote about the numbers of Christians in China – that there were probably more true Christians in China than there were in America. With all that China has done to stamp out Christianity – and is still doing…
…how is it possible for there to be 100 million true Christians in China?
I can guarantee – with complete certainty – that the number of real Christians in America is nowhere near 100 million. Not that long ago someone remarked to me that the average American Christian is less moral and less honest than the average non-Christian, just 60 years ago.
So, how did the Chinese Christians thrive so dramatically?
They surrendered their lives to God in the midst of suffering and injustice. And, without firing a shot, they won a revolution. And, I find it ironic that Chinese pastors consider America to be in greater need of missionaries than their own country.
If you need a living and breathing example of how to defeat the Luciferians, THAT is quite an example. They were powerful in weakness. They had victory because they surrendered to God.
Here is what the Bible says about the war that we fight today:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. – Ephesians 6:12
This one also sticks in my mind:
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. – 2 Corinthians 10:3-6
If you think that we fight with physical weapons, you are sorely misguided – because this is a spiritual battle that can only be won …if you obey.
Paul is saying here that God is ready avenge us – but, not before we are obedient to Him.
Are you ready to obey God?
God will NOT fight your battles unless you have chosen obedience first.
If My People…
If you want to win the battle that stands before us… If you want victory on the battlefield… If you want freedom… …then this is what must happen:
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. – 2 Chronicles 7:14
If you call yourself a Christian, you have literally been named with the name of Christ. You are called by His name.
Therefore, you must:
- Humble yourself
- Pray and seek the face of God
- Turn from your wicked ways
- Ask God to forgive you.
He WILL forgive you, and He will lead the armies of heaven against our enemies – who are also His enemies. But… when you can… spare a thought of mercy for those enemies.
We were the enemies of God when He came to Earth, but He died for us, anyway. We WANT the enemies of liberty and justice to join us. We want the Luciferians to betray their god, and join with us, their enemy.
And yes, it DOES happen.
But, do you think that they’ll do that if we offer them a poisoned cup of ‘vengeance’?
Overcome Evil With Goodness
Far too many of us have given Christ a bad name by ‘fighting fire with fire’ – when we should have followed Paul’s advice:
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. – Romans 12:19
We all deserve vengeance, and we American Christians deserve it more than most, because of our rebellion against God. We have become like anyone else, and have forgotten the true power of God.
Did You Really Hear The Message Yesterday?
I hope that you went to a good church yesterday and heard a true message. God came and humbled Himself and became our servant. He washed our feet and loved us even while we hated Him.
And do not fool yourself. You hated Christ before you became His follower. We all hated Him. We were His enemies. Yet, He died for His enemies.
Are you ready to die for your enemy?
We were His enemy, but Christ died for us, anyway. And, in so doing, laid upon us the challenge to be like Himself:
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. – Luke 9:23-24
We are in the middle of a great war, but we are also near the end of it. And, it will end with victory. Unfortunately, you will not be a part of that victory, if you haven’t laid your life down for the sake of Christ – if you haven’t followed His example on the cross.
A huge choice lies before you. For a long time, people thought that they could muddle through by following a ‘middle path’, but the time where you could do that is over. The sides are forming up.
I know which side the Chinese Christians are on. I’m there too. We’re the sheep, and I know that very few of us are going to die of old age.
I know which side has the power, the pride and the anger. I know the sound of their growl and the feel of their bite. They’re willing to kill and looking forward to the chance.
However, there are those who have tried to stand in the middle. They’ve enjoyed the spectacle of the growl and the bite, but they hear the call of The Shepherd.
If you’re that person, the time has come to choose, and there are only two choices:
Pride, Vengeance and Power
– or –
Humility, Mercy and Sacrifice
You can’t have both.
Are you ready for this?
