Oh To Be Wise Meditations
I was walking in the cool of the day when I saw underneath the shade the head of a snake. Beautiful colored snake but was laying there on the ground in half. His tail was no where to be found only his head was left for the ants to come eat. One by one each ant came and were taking apart this once glorious snake. This made me think of the Enemy of our souls, the devil. He once was a son of the morning, a covering angel before Gods presence daily. Isaiah 14:12 says of the devil, How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, O Lucifer son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High. Instead, you will be brought down to the place of the dead, down to its lowest depths. Jesus says that he saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. For there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels. And the dragon lost the battle, and he and his angels were forced out of heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. The accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to earth the one who accuses them before our God day and night. And the dragon was angry at the woman and declared war against the rest of her children, all who keep God’s commandments and maintain their testimony for Jesus. Praise God! Jesus came to this world to destroy the works of the devil, that Serpent of Old. The plan of salvation was set before the foundations of world. The prophecy was: And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” Gen. 3:15 On the Cross Jesus was victorious cutting off the head of that Serpent of Old. That same tail that swept a third of the angels away and came against the Savior of the world still swings wide to deceive all people from every tribe nation and tongue. The Kingdom of Heaven is near and has already come. Yes, it has come at last— salvation and power and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. The reign of terror has been cut off and the Kingdom of God has stepped in power. Though the enemies tail is still out deceiving for one last great battle of the cosmos. The head of the snake is slowly being picked apart like the ants that eat a dead snake on the ground. Just like a head with a body is dead. So the kingdom of the enemy has been cut off and soon to be under our feet. As we sit and reign in Heavenly Places. Come LORD Come. Maranatha!
