The Devil wants us angry, because anger blinds people to reason and deafens them to dialogue
The Devil wants us to react, because reaction is anger-driven and anger blinds
The Devil wants us to ‘justifiably’ hate, because hate is a reaction of anger, which blinds
The Devil wants us to believe what we choose to believe—he doesn’t care one bit if we believe him so long as our autonomous beliefs are in conflict with our neighbor’s
The Devil wants us to stand and fight for our tribe and to remember that our ‘side’ cannot be wrong—because to divide is to dominate, and divisions come from anger, reaction, hatred and our own autonomous truth
The Devil doesn’t want us love our enemies and neighbors or to lay down our lives for others—anger is a foothold that works his will, even when that anger is justified
The Devil wants us full of outrage and righteous indignation, focused on whatever offends our autonomous sensibilities—because under no circumstances does he want us to see the big picture: how he is orchestrating through angry people a global coup predicted in the Bible, where he will dominate, deceive, divide and then reunite the world under a abominable man who will enthrall the world by fostering anger, hatred and autonomous truth against those who ‘disagree’ with him
The Devil doesn’t want us to think, pray, reason and respond like Jesus to the world’s chaos
The Devil wants us to forget that anger is his foothold and lies are his vocabulary
The Devil wants us to forget that Jesus will return to Judge the world
The Devil is just warming up the engines of destruction
And God wants us to know this.
