Proverbs 8 4-8-18

There is a battle raging on planet Earth and we are the prize. If only we could grasp the seriousness of the situation!

On one side, we have God the Father and Creator:

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

With Him are the Son and the Spirit:

[2] Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

Revelation 3:14 To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation [Jesus].

Proverbs 8:30-31 Then I was the craftsman at his side. I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in his presence, [31] rejoicing in his whole world and delighting in mankind.

On the other side is Satan and his horde:

Zechariah 3:1 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan [theAccuser-see Job 1] standing at his right side to accuse him. [see Isaiah 14:1-23 for more information]

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

As we worship the LORD today, let us rejoice that we no longer stand accused; Jesus has freed us from sin and all things evil and has made us righteous in Him [2 Cor. 5:21] Now, it’s simply a matter of appropriating His holiness in our lives.

Best verse (passage):

Romans 8:1-2 Therefore, [there is now] NO CONDEMNATION for those who are in Christ Jesus, [2] because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
