The Champion is seated above, and He watches the sides as they fight. One side is fighting for the freedom of the descendents of Earth. Earth is an oceanic and soilful planet that is strategically situated in the solar system known as Universe. The creatures that live on this habitable planet are human, all of them together, humanity. Unknown to these humans, they have two conflicting militia fighting over them at all times, the forces are Good and Bad.
Good is arrayed in white, while Bad is arrayed in black. Good shines as the sun, while bad is darker than night. It should be unmistakable which side is which.
Bad is constantly at odds with Good. Bad distorts all that Good stands for, things like love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Good has received intelligence from the Champion, the true King of Earth and Universe, His name, Jesus Christ.
Bad has received orders from Jesus Christâ€™s archenemy; Badâ€™s intelligence comes from the devil. Bad has become highly skilled in utilizing the secret weapon devised by their leader, in a never-ending pursuit to overcome Good. This weapon goes undetected by many of the humans on Earth. If the humans ever saw Bad for what it really is, they would never concede to that side.
Good, sent out from the rooftops of Earth to all humans, has caused Bad to cringe in horror since the birth of the entire Universe. When Bad realized that the humans could side with Good, a way had to be contrived to make Good appear Bad. Thatâ€™s when their leader thought of a destructive weapon, and Bad has been using it against Good quite successfully for many ages. The secret weapon that Bad uses in the conspiracy to take over Earth is tolerance.
One would think that tolerance is good, and tolerance can be a good thing, but it can be a bad thing as well. Tolerance has been used successfully by Bad for many ages in foiling Goodâ€™s plans for Earth.
Whenever Good speaks out against Bad, tolerance is ready to intervene. Tolerance somehow has convinced the humans to accept things that are bad for them, things like sexual immorality, lustful pleasures, idolatry, demonic activities, hostility, anger, jealousy, selfishness, and drunkenness.
Whenever Good exposes toleranceâ€™s blunder that accepting such deadly activities is an acceptable way to live, it is Good, not Bad, that appears bad to the humans. This deception is the secret to the success of this unconventional weapon, and it has won over many humans, causing them to live on the side of Bad.
The noble King Jesus Christ has, in reality, already won the battle between Good and Bad, and He is sitting down right now, at the right hand of His Father in heaven. He is watching and He is praying for all of the humans to come over to Goodâ€™s side.
He is about to return to Earth, and when He does, He will reveal what is really Good, and what is really Bad; and then it will be clear to all, but until that day comes, Good must press on in the face of tolerance. Good must be ceaselessly communicated to all of Earthâ€™s inhabitants, so that they will all see Good as good, and Bad as bad, and be able to choose the right side.
