Gotcha! Who's Got Whom?
I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:3 (NIV)
I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.
Matthew 10:16 (NKJV)
Exactly who's being gotten by whom? Are the wiles of the devil catching us? Repeatedly, our brave Captain warned us to be wary of Satan's devices. He's got lots of tricks up his silky sleeves.
Therein lies my concern for Christian kin. Because they're aggravated with the world, because they're disturbed by other Christians, because they're angry with the government, because they hate the way things are going...
Many are fighting the wrong enemy and taking aim at the wrong battlefields... which leaves them vulnerable to attack.
At the same time, saints can score the gotcha, by enforcing the victory Christ won:
1) The war against Satan and his legions. Jesus gave us His very Own power. Then Paul detailed our weapons and armor.
2) The campaign to free Satan's prisoners. Like me. Until three ladies fought for me. Repeatedly, they stormed hell's gates--and won.
