After a discussion between MattmanDude, CrazyOldTeenager, and myself, a short (but to the point) series of rules will now be coming into effect for this...
Basileus Basileon Basileuon Basileuonton. Translated as "king of kings, ruling over rulers"
Just a message from an old wanderer passing through.
Lot of information for new recruits packed into a mere article. Also has three medal of honor soundtracks to listen too while reading if you want. Enjoy.
Your new order of business now that you are a member of the Grand Army of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I am sorry if I acted like a dumb for asking this...
Actually why Satan wanted to do something that against our God? I didn't really read the Bible, so that's why I didn't really know.
Satan (aka Lucifier) was the highest, most well respected, and intelligent of the Angelic Host. He was the elite of the elite. A being of immense power and beauty. Basically God's right hand.
He was also entrusted with much in the Kingdom. God would often appoint those of the Angelic Host for tasks to be done or overseen. Everyone had a part to play, some more than others.
Eventually, Lucifer became lifted up in pride. The base of all sin within itself. He then wondered, with all his power and intelligence, could he not be like the Almighty? His influence was widespread. Over 1/3rd of the Angelic host threw in their lot with him. So there was war in the heavens. As one could wonder, the spiritual implications of this didn't do wonders for the creation.
His rebellion was shortly defeated, but not destroyed. Humanity was then tempted, and fell. Lucifer had dragged God's highest creation down with him. But, Humanity had chosen to go along with him.
Why had God allowed this one would wonder? Choice.
Whether one be Angel or Human, choice overrides.
God won't override choice, but he'll make a way for others to choose right.
Hence Jesus Christ. As for those who don't choose wisely, judgement.
It won't go on forever like this though.
Eventually, there will be the end game.
Moral of the story, sin blinds one. Once it takes root, it drives one to do that which ultimately results in the same outcome, yet believe different. Insanity in it's truest form.
I honestly think that Satan at one point will apologize and God will forgive him. I always thought like that because God has the power to exterminate him if He chooses, but He didn't. There's probably a long story behind this and we, humans, will never learn it until resurrection. First possible reason is because God loves His creatures, and second possible reason is because Satan may apologize at some point and God will forgive him. God himself will be our greatest source of news on that.
God knows everything, he's our father, our teacher and our best friend. I can trust Him, and I hope I will never distrust Him and His all mighty powerful kingdom.
Yes, but it's a matter of choice.
God won't violate that, if Satan is truly convinced he can win, which he probably is, than there's nothing further that can be done for Him.
Considering in the Bible it's said he will be thrown into the lake of fire forever and ever, my belief is that he is beyond redemption.
God will always forgive if one apologizes, that's a thing we know for sure. Don't you remember Jesus Christ's words before He died? There was another dude on a cross too, and before his fate, he apologized, and Jesus Christ told him that from now on he will be in paradise with Him.
There are countless of other stories in the bible about people who apologized and God forgave them, no matter what they did, no matter how "late" they were. God does not get "******", nor jealous, nor sad. He loves everyone, even the people that haven't apologized yet, so hate to tell you but you are wrong here.
Yes, that is very true about forgiveness.
But do remember, God has the gift of foreknowledge.
That, and if Satan weren't thrown into the Lake of Fire. Than that would mean God had broken His own word, therefore nullifying Him as God. Once the Lord says He's going to do something, that's final. Only times He's ever gone back on something He said He's going to do is when his people repented or pleaded with Him.
I'm not even counting the fact that there is currently no plan of redemption for the Angels. Christ died to redeem humanity, but he didn't die to redeem the Angels. So their sins, are stuck with them. Unlike mankind, all the Angels were made at the same time fully mature. They were fully conscious of what it was they were doing, when they did it. Knowing full well what the consequences would be, no excuses.
You are absolutely right.
So lets just said he was overjoyed?
He was very blessed, but let pride (sin) take root and cause him to go insane.
Insane in that he believed he could do better than God, even dethrone Him.
Knowing before, that such was simply impossible.
But yet, sin whispered in his ear otherwise.
So, sins are powerful enough to drive a "God" mad. Well at least I learnt something again thx
I always said the Evolution Theory is total crap although it holds some truth in part
I always said that we actually devolved not evolved and it's a lot to speak about here
And i also thought that this civilization now is the most backward and weak compared to the great ancient past , even more so compared with the archaic past
In my opinion i think it does not depend how much you live as much as it matters HOW you live and how good is your life
For instance people of Somalia would choose best they wouldn't have gotten born in the first place compared to people of Monaco for instance who'd wish to live for centuries
You know what i mean , i don't mean to offend anyone neither point out the difference between the rich and the poor but things are always this way though
I wouldn't wanna live a day more if my life would be complete pain and misery but i would wanna live forever if i'd have everything i ever wanted and live the way i always wanted
Just being honest you know
Death is a sweet release for some , gladly awaited and for others is a dreadful point in the future to be delayed at all costs
Also, i think it's not everything about being immortal but how unkillable you are as well
If i were to choose i'd choose a lifespan of at least 1000 years where i'd grow old after year 950 ( looking like 50 , 60 and so on respectively ) but also being very unkillable and of course a life where there would be little to no discomfort and little to no obstacle in what i'd wanna do
Must add that maybe they were living that long but they weren't alone neither in charge of anything.The Earth's fauna was not cute , small and furry like nowadays back then ( no puppies or brownies sorry ) and humans were not the rulers of Earth at all ( proves why God helped them step by step and babysitted them a lot in those days ) No , they were just the smallest minority fighting each day and night for survival ( and if Evolution is right it's gotta be right at this aspect only - the fight for survival and the survival of the fittest , most likely , at least to me )
I really cannot wait to see what the future will bring in the Afterlife
I'm not entirely sure why, but I wish the human lifespan was like it was back in the Bible Times. Although I don't yearn for it, it would be splendid to live over a millennium. The lifespan for humans at that time was between 500 - 1400 years (oldest at 969), ten times longer than now, which is at 49-89 years counting world wide life expectancies (122 being the oldest in modern record).
One theory relates it being towards our goods and produce resources being injected with artificial 'man-made' ingredients for environmental, weather and disease immunity, yet, the cost is health related penalties. Another theory comes from the death of Jesus and God cursing humans to live ten times shorter because of their terrible deeds. I'm all in with the first theory, for I believe that it is the most accurate out of all.
Yes, but that lifespan was during the very early days during Adam and Eve, after Noah's flood people were nearly down to what they are now. It's a shame people die so early now, imagine if your prime was in your 50's instead of 30's.
Even a extra 20 years of youth makes a difference.
Looking at it now, you can't help but realize how valuable life can be.
Yeah, and to think that Centenarians and Super-centenarians are just becoming fewer and fewer in number. The next moment one can blink may be their final breath before they pass away.
I don't know where Jesus, man's comments went but I took the liberty of finding the survey he posted that shows atheism's decline and the growth of religions world-wide.
TKAzA removed his comments and banned him.
Lot of people been being banned lately around moddb.
He would not get banned unless he's done something bad.
Some people just erase their profile and move out for good or return under another one
As for what he said , personally i'd disagree with what he said.
I think that atheism and anti-religious behaviour and mentality is on the rise instead , more so , a subtle , slow but sure propagation of satanism is happening under our eyes ( notice the signs and stuff they have in music videos these days ) which can be worrying for some , unbeknownst for others and of course good news for those aligned with these things.
For a christian like me it's simply the signs of the ages that happen in our times.
Pretty Much .
I'm a moderator here, when I saw his comments missing I hit "view deleted" and saw that it said they were deleted by TKAzA. Then visited his profile, he was banned.
If anything, it should be bad news for them. Their supposed increase in power is actually a sign of the Lords returning as told of in the Bible. People will be very wicked during these last days. But the righteous, will prevail over all of them, thanks to Christ. As for us, we just need to focus more on Christ and being good witnesses for him. In that we should not tarry.
And here i am finding myself at a crossroad with diverging paths.
It might be wrong or not what i thought , but i must confess.
Somewhat recently i just felt compelled to decide to join the Illuminati , they have a site and such and you can talk with them but i think that's a really bad idea.
So what do you people think about that ?
Are they followers of Christ ? Are they on the Good and Light side ? Would i betray Lord Jesus if i'd join them or apply ?
Not wanting to start a conspiracy type of discussion here but i mean it in the christian way.
If we follow Lord Jesus i assume once you stray from the path you are actually betraying Him and that means something very bad.
I just cannot fight strongly enough with this thought.
I love God and all His things but i feel extremely weak sometimes, unable to do the things i would really wanna do and the foreshight of a humble life in humility , trials and tribulation scare me.
I also crave power and control sometimes , i'm also really cruel sometimes and mean and harmful to people ( feelings wise i know how to harm your feelings )
The path of Good is really hard and weighs heavily on my shoulders and often times i ask myself or God , where's my reward ? when will i receive my reward for my faith and hardships of life ...and then evil tempts me again with thoughts of seizing power and control.
I would change so many things if i'd rule the world you know but then again all tyrants said that.
I really need some advices with this.
What does God say about these things ?
If i'm not making any sense then just don't mind me and ignore this.
Pheww ! Glad i gathered the courage to confess this stuff anyway. It makes me feel a tiny bit better.
As Christians, what we believe should be available to any and all. Groups like the Illuminati, I wouldn't advise joining them, it's like a cult. Once you get in, they often don't let you out, and they also try and control your life, don't even bother consulting the Word of God and what times they do is used to advance their agenda. The only one who should have authority like that over us is Jesus Christ and God's Word. A minister or preacher can never order you, only give God's Word.
Yay, Ive experienced that feeling.
It's a very dark feeling...
My best advice is too consult the word of God, especially on grace/forgiveness.
I find when reading God's word on this, it has a calming effect on me.
What i meant is serious Joshua.
I understand. No i don't want anyone to control me or my life.
Society is way too much of a control freak for people already.
I hate being controlled sometimes and i feel better in control.
I'd hate having to do things against my will or threatened or having to harm someone without having a choice to say no or not do it.
I'm bad at following orders , i'd be far better as a freelancer , a mercenary or a hero.
I like having my own code of conduct though , i make rules for myself , self-discipline is best if one can have it.
Thanks a lot for the support.
" No , i will not accept this defeat "
" I shall not faulter again ! "
And here's where i probably went a bit crazy too myself.
Thanks again for the advice but i feel like crap after i struggle with this thought , like it leaves me with a loss of energy.
What I said was also serious.
Sorry if you interpreted differently, I should have worded it better. But for me it is a very dark feeling. Kinda like a Sith from Star Wars or Dark Eldar from Warhammer.
You mentioned it well.
Is just me who didn't get it at first.
Wow that's a cool song Ringo Bingo.
Screw yeah !!
Sorry i think i wasn't supposed to like the song.
God ! i'm just sick of being a goody 2 shoes sometimes.
Sometimes i wanna be so evil and cruel and devilish !
Is it possible to work with evil without having to give your soul in return ?
Is it possible to be evil and remain on the side of Good too ?
I feel a very dark feeling too like the call of the Dark Side compelling me to renounce on the path of Good , embrace evil and then let go of all my anger towards complete destruction.
May God help me in these moments that come once in a while because i really don't feel well when this happens.
Never give up on Lord good christians !
The temptations are soo strong these days, they can make you go crazy.
May Our Lord from heavens be with you all !
Weren't supposed to like the song ?
It's ok,hell isn't for everyone.
I like metal and rock but i don't like Satan or evil neither hate them.
I like the realm of death not Hell.
Heaven isn't for everyone either although anyone is welcome to apply and strive to get there.
I thought you just gave me that song in completion to what i said before and not give it so i can enjoy it and being on the xtian group i thought it would be so nasty of me to show that i like a metal song.
Thanks for calling me insecure.
Damn straight, it's not for anyone at all.
If things were right, no one would be going there.
She seemed pretty insecure to me,says she wants peace and well being but then again explains how she is cruel,vile and sadistic,feeling guilty for liking a metal song.
That's not something one sees everyday...
But then again, most people aren't as open about how they really feel.
The human soul can be a very dark place sometimes.
Ultimately one can only have 1 master, you cannot have 2. It's up too you which path you take, but one leads to destruction and the other salvation. We all have our personal problems, struggles and eventual triumphs.
Don't give the enemy the satisfaction.
That even sounds like you care.
I'll remain serving Lord and that's it.
