In 2007 while praying and meditating on Christ`s Crucifixion i was taken to the foot of a tree, no one in sight, i was on top of a hill, to my right was a big tree nothing else around, i thought i was on another abduction, so a was ready to defend myself as always, there was a foot path in front of me so i started to move toward the path which was heading down to some smaller hills, the sky looked so dark and evil,as i took my first step i heard a voice, He said can you see?, i turned to my right and all i saw was the tree, so i walked toward the tree thinking someone was behind it, as i did that He spoke again,CAN YOU SEE HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU?It was coming from above me in the tree ...and i looked up at the tree, and i saw a man nailed to the tree , high above me, i felt overwhelmed and helpless to help Him, i just stared up watching My God Jesus the Christ in pain struggling , His face beaten so bad ,he didn't look human , i could not tell He had a face, His beard full of dry blood, the crown of thorns were piercing his head,His hands shaking in great pain contorting after a few moments, He bent His Head down to look at me, His eyes opened and He began to cry, His eyes began to look like two pools of water, In all His pain He was in He was crying for me,not Himself, a second later i was back in my room. i know what Love is because i saw the greatest LOVE IN THE UNIVERSE....Jesus said â€˜And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. In Jesusâ€™ prayer to the Father he prays for us, â€˜You should keep them from the evil oneâ€ (John 17:15-16). Satan is called the evil one. We are promised â€œwho will establish you and guard you from the evil oneâ€ (2 Thessalonians 3:3-4).
James 3:14-16: â€œdo not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.â€ This is what Satanâ€™s nature is like.
Jesus said in John 3:20, â€œFor everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.â€
Satan is in stealth mode as much as possible as he devises evil and hides in darkness trying not to be exposed by the light.
Ephesians 2:2-3 We once â€œwalked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,â€ This is the disobedience that Satan influences us in through our sinful nature until one is regenerated.
Satan is known as the enemy of our souls. He oppresses, he takes captives, he deceives, he lies; he kills and destroys-Peter calls him our adversary1 Peter 5:8. Jesus commends the church that â€œcannot bear those who are evilâ€ (Revelation 2:2). Satan is evil.
The Bible tells us to pray for those who do evil to us, but in this matter there is no redemption for Satan and his rebellious demons that are already sentenced waiting to be judged. In 1 John 3:8 we are told â€œfor this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.â€ Satan is to be â€œcursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: Matthew 25:41, as are all those who refuse Christ and follow his ways.
The devil hated Jesus and used everything at his disposal to prevent him from a successful mission. John 15:23 â€œHe who hates Me hates My Father also.â€
If God and Jesus hate sin and evil and Satan is the author of it, (and embodies it) then certainly we are justified to hate what God hates.
