CONTRAST…

Christ’s Kingdom: One hears with “inner” ears, sees with “inner” eyes, and walks by “faith”. One wears an “inner” beauty, experiences an “inner” witness, and testifies to a changed “heart”. One walks with an “invisible” God, talks with an “invisible” One, seeks an “invisible” Kingdom. And lives by “faith”. One walks with an eternal “hope” through an eternal “love” with an ever-present “Companion”. One “knows” an unmovable foundation, a security “unshifting”, an outside of time “Presence” in time. One walks with an eternal “family”, a bond “thicker than blood”, and a “companionship” much deeper than the surface. One walks with eyes “lifted up”, heart “extended”, open handed, waiting and expecting… Looking for the “promise

Satan’s kingdom: One hears with “outer” ears, sees with “outer” eyes, and walks by “sight”. One wears an “outer” beauty, experiences an “outer” witness, and testifies to a dark “heart”. One walks with an “invisible” Evil, talks with a Lying One, seeks a “visible” kingdom. And lives by “feelings”. One walks with eternal “deception” through an eternal “hate” with a never-present “Betrayer”. One “knows not” their false foundation, an insecurity “constantly shifting”, an outside of time “presence” with false intentions in time. One walks “without” a family, with the “Shedder” of blood, and a “companionship” much darker than the surface. One walks with eyes “looking in”, heart “withheld”, closed fisted, waiting and expecting…Looking to “deceive

These are the truths of the redeemed and unredeemed heart. We may not notice what is going on behind the scene. But there are invisible realities at work in both. The redeemed heart is ONLY good because of the blood of the cross. The unredeemed may “appear” as good on the surface. But deep down, in the secret place, it is pure evil and is capable of horrible things…left alone. JUST AS WE ALL WERE without grace and mercy, and now carrying a living hope by the Holy Spirit within us! So, LET US NOT MIX WITH OR CONFUSE THE TWO. However, let us always offer the reason for our hope. Since apart from the BLOOD there is no hope!
