Our Adversary

Lucifer was created by God as an intelligent, powerful and beautiful angel. His name refers to a bright morning star (Isaiah 14:12), a star that outshines all the others.  As an angel, Lucifer was already in God’s presence, so he had no need for salvation. Unlike humans, angels can only “opt out,” if you will.  And opt out he did.  Because of his status as the most exalted of angels, pride started to take root (Ezekiel 28:17), and he decided that God should be unseated so that he could be worshiped instead (Isaiah 14:14).   In this quest, he has been imitating and mocking God ever since, and using temptation and deception as his primary weapons against mankind.

Satan has blinded the minds of the unbelieving world (2 Corinthians 4:4).  Although he has no direct power over believers, he loves to trip them up with temptation.  New believers are especially easy prey for Satan, and when believers fall for his tricks and end up committing sometimes grievous sins, he sits back and smiles while the unbelieving world blasts Christians as being phony, hypocritical, etc.  He has no reason to target unbelievers with temptation because he already has them right where he wants them.  He does deceive the unbelieving masses daily however.  He loves to use half-truths and twist scripture just enough to completely change the meaning.  He has created countless false religions that are steadily growing in popularity, and he loves to make Christianity out to be the enemy.  He is incredibly clever.

Satan knows his time is short, and he is ramping up his agendas.  You can see it in practically every headline.  The stage is being set for the final battle between good and evil.  It’s time for each individual to make their eternal choice.

God bless,

Jill Harrison

LOCAL HOST FAMILIES for HIGH SCHOOL EXCHANGE STUDENTS

ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE), in cooperation with your community high school, is looking for local families to host boys and girls between the ages of 15 to 18 from a variety of countries: Norway, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Japan, to name a few.  ASSE students are enthusiastic and excited to experience American culture while they practice their English. They also love to share their own culture and language with their host families. Host families welcome these students into their family, not as a guest, but as a family member, giving everyone involved a rich cultural experience.   The exchange students have pocket money for personal expenses and full health, accident and liability insurance. ASSE students are selected based on academics and personality, and host families can choose their student from a wide variety of backgrounds, countries and personal interests.  To become an ASSE Host Family or to find out how to become involved with ASSE in your community, please call the ASSE Western Regional Office at 1-800-733-2773 or go to www.host.asse.com to begin your host family application. Students are eager to learn about their American host family, so begin the process of welcoming your new son or daughter today!  8/26
