Jesus made it very clear to his followers, both then as well as today, that to follow him was to take a path that leads to persecution and hardship, going against the crowd and having the world hate you, because you represent the "light" that Jesus is in the world, which in turn exposes the evil of the world system, ruled by Satan, the father of lies. Jesus said: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6) A choice now confronts every one of us, and it is most certainly NOT a choice between political parties or ideologies. It is a choice between good and evil, between Satan and the ruler of the Kingdom of Darkness, or Jesus and the ruler of the Kingdom of God. The pretenders, mostly the religious who belong to their churches or religious institutions, will not make it. Because one is not saved by their associations or belief systems. One is only saved by a person, who is The Way, The Truth, and The Life. Knowing about him is not good enough. Satan knows about him too, and that knowledge does not save him. Jesus is the vine, the life source, and as he stated in that upper room discourse, "apart from me you can do nothing." But together with him, we can do EVERYTHING! "If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you." Satan knows this, and he fears it. But are there enough true disciples of Jesus Christ who know his power left in the world to make Satan tremble? We're about to find out.
