Topic: Charade (08/14/08)

TITLE: Luciferian Charade
By Debbie Harris


Luciferian Charade

Is not every lie from the enemy
A Luciferian charade?
Each lie,
A carefully crafted mirage
Often embedded with the sparkle of one grain of truth
So bright that the gleaming truth brilliantly and subtly disguises
The lie into a gleam of light.
So subtle and deceptive is the lie,
Shrouded by the demonically produced light filled glare,
That it pleasantly lures and sinks the soul
Into a quicksand of excruciating sins and snares.
So alluring can be the lie
That the heart of flesh is re-energized
And the deceived soul languishes and flounders
In condemnation,
In destruction,
In despair
And then wonders why.
Has not the soul been captivated by the enemies lies disguised
As the lust of the flesh,
The pride of life,
And the lust of the eyes?

Is this not the ultimate Luciferian charade?
When darkness is presented as light
Or when light is presented as darkness?

Are these not modern day Luciferian Charades?
Prosperity gospel?
That my sin is too great for God.
That I am a good person.
That pleasure is more important than pain.
That all religions point to the same God.
That there are many ways to get to heaven without Jesus.
That I can starve away sin, guilt, & shame.
That I can throw up all the feelings of an anguished heart.
That I can cut away my feelings to cleanse my soul that is torn apart.
That life is meaningless.
That I live only once so I better get all I can.
That earth is the only heaven I will know.
That accumulating riches is more important than redeeming souls.
That the science of psychology has more mystical power than the
Redeeming, transforming, & illuminating power of the cross.
That the intellect tries to worship itself without giving glory to God.
That creativity is used to worship darkness rather than light.
Is not the biggest Luciferian charade
That the enemy of every soul, Satan
Transforms himself as the angel of light?
Is this not the ultimate masquerade?

O fellow brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ,
Sinners now saints,
Lost but now redeemed,
In darkness-but now in light,
Servants of the world but now servants of the cross,
May we be so filled with the riches of His Word,
May we be so enraptured and overwhelmed with His love for us,
May we be so illuminated by His light,
May we be so knowledgeable about our Father’s will,
That when our Savior asks this question of his blood bought saints
“When I come will I find faith upon the earth?”
That we can humbly and victoriously say,
“Yes Lord Jesus, because of your most blessed, holy, and inerrant word
My faith was not overcome by Luciferian charades!”

Strong! This is excellent. A good self-examination for every professing Christian. Your writing style is clear, easy to read, and to the point. More! Encore!
