I have been using this name as a metaphor for what scripture calls the kingdoms of this world, the kingdom of darkness is another..... and the ruler of this world is Satan. Satan is the father of lies, the deceiver who blinds our eyes and his goal is to steal men's hearts, kill each one of us and literally destroy everything God has created.
Since everything that is, has been created by God, that gives Satan a lot of room to operate in and he stays very busy at it, dispensing his demonic hordes to do just that..... steal, kill and destroy. That is a big time war!
And we are in it, like it or not, agree with it or not...... just look around at our world where people cry for peace and there is no peace, we cry for love but end up with some pretty poor substitutes....maybe even think we are pretty good at it till the loved one offends us or upsets us in some way. Then one might just think earthquakes, tidal waves, hurricanes, tornadoes, mud slides, fires or any big or little whatever........how about global warming?
There is a way to see thru the Matrix.... see thru Satan's kingdom.....into another kingdom! Totally different. It is seen with the eyes of our heart and ..... it is a whole new world..... and a whole new ballgame.
It's called the Kingdom of God! Hope I see you tomorrow.
