Dear Satan

Written by C R Hamilton

Continued from page 1

You only pick on people smaller than you or feeble minded, or sick. You pick on little children, old ladies, and handicapped people. You start vicious rumors and lies about people and withholdrepparttar truth and any compliments about them. You never give anyone a positive report, only evil lies. You are nosy and a gossip; you are confused about your sexuality and you do drugs. You abuse children and molest them; you also steal from people, especiallyrepparttar 127039 trusting ones, or little old ladies onrepparttar 127040 sly. I know you.

You hate happy people and love misery. You especially love money, teach about it, and ask for it allrepparttar 127041 time. You package God’s words and sale them for profit; you threaten people with curses and death and hell if they do not give. That is another reason I know you are no good. You lust after women who have no man and use and confuse them like you did Eve inrepparttar 127042 garden.

Nevertheless, when it comes to a true disciple or apostle of Christ, you had your last laugh when you tricked Judas. The rest of us know who you are. You go to church, pray, and testify inrepparttar 127043 isles; you sing inrepparttar 127044 choir and even preach inrepparttar 127045 pulpit. But I see you anywhere you are. You even haverepparttar 127046 nerve to call yourself an apostle. Saying you’ve been through this and you’ve been through that but you are lying your head off. You are afraid to suffer for Christ sake let alone even wanting to.

You look good and sound good but I know who you are. Soon I will let you know I know, face-to-face. I also know that you are afraid of me because I know and tellrepparttar 127047 truth and you hate me for that. So what, I’m letting everyone know. The main way I know you is because you have no love in you. I know love, God is love, and you are not. Love covers a multitude of sins and forgives them. You remind people of their sin everyday and never forgive them. Then you go and tell other people about someone else’s sins. That is where you slipped.

You went and told God that I was being bad and he looked at you and said “you are a liar, he is good”. So you went and told others that I was no good, you tried to twist God’s words so that they would be misunderstood. Many people believed you but that is OK, as long as God knows where my soul will end up. As for you and those you own See you all on Judgment Day.

Love, The Preacher

The Fear of Death

Written by C R Hamilton

Continued from page 1

Becauserepparttar fear of death is such a strong governing force ofrepparttar 127038 human mind,repparttar 127039 threat of death acts as an advantage to some. Hold a gun to an unarmed person’s head and ask them for anything of value to them, in most instances they will give it. Others value some things such as family, friends and even material substances torepparttar 127040 point of death. However, this takes courage and lots of love, and sometimes lust. Nevertheless, when a person’s life is threatened, they will submit torepparttar 127041 one holdingrepparttar 127042 gun. Crooks, drugs dealers, robbers, murderers, child molesters, rapist, even businesspeople, congress people, celebrities, andrepparttar 127043 average working Joe knows that if push comes to shove, a gun and a serious demeanor can give them temporary power over their victim.

Notice Hollywood movies. Ninety-nine percent ofrepparttar 127044 time,repparttar 127045 antagonist usesrepparttar 127046 threat of death to get what they want fromrepparttar 127047 victim. Be it gun point, knives, bombs, alien invasion, war, or withrepparttar 127048 bare hands, if death isrepparttar 127049 antagonist’s strategy forrepparttar 127050 victim or victims, it makes for a adventurous movie. The fear of death makesrepparttar 127051 plot. Death also makes good sad stories. Whenrepparttar 127052 main or supporting character is suddenly stricken with sickness and dies afterrepparttar 127053 audience grows fond ofrepparttar 127054 character, it makes a good story. If there were no death, Hollywood would have no purpose, neither would many crooks.

Eternal life is an option for those who desire to live a fearless life. Free fromrepparttar 127055 threat of death and of Hell. Trusting in God and His promise of a heavenly kingdom will destroyrepparttar 127056 fear. In fact, many believers of God desire death over life any day. That means that after they die (or their body dies) they will be with God. This mindset takes great faith, faith that what God promised is true and real. Those who have this type faith do not fear death but await it. When those close to them die, it is no great loss or sorrow because they know that of that person hadrepparttar 127057 same faith, then they are with God.

Do not fear death. Fear death only if there is no faith in God. If there is no faith in God then there should be any belief in Satan, and if there is no belief in Satan, then do not fear death because this means there is nothing afterward inrepparttar 127058 afterlife. But who can be sure that there is anything? The human mind hasrepparttar 127059 ability to imaginerepparttar 127060 unimaginable and many people have no control over that realm ofrepparttar 127061 mind. Therefore, ifrepparttar 127062 mind says “know” then realize that there is something greater thanrepparttar 127063 mind. Trust God and live.
