Taking Sides Print E-mail

by: Bishop Samuel Smith

The war between light and darkness continues! It began when Lucifer rebelled against God and was cast out of Heaven. Since then he has caused havoc, misery and in general… "hell on earth." Satan's works are many, you need not look far to see his craftiness. His followers are dedicated and numerous. The struggle between right and wrong intensifies as we approach the finale of a fated generation.

Once, the Egyptian Pharoah seeking to destroy the child who would lead Israel out of his clutches, murdered all the Israelite boy children under the age of two. No wonder even now the enemy of mankind's soul salvation fights the "truth" that sets people free from sin!

Demon-driven Herod tried in vain to kill the Christ-child. Why should we be surprised when today, the devil stops at nothing to prevent souls from following Jesus Christ all the way?

The early Christian Church was persecuted, battered, and beaten. The New Testament saints and the generations that followed were burned, suffered, and bled; but, they never bent, never surrendered, and grew stronger with every trial. Should we be surprised that the 21st century church is attacked by the power of darkness? Likewise, the true church will overcome!

Recently, a noted advocate of iniquity publicly proclaimed the Bible to be "…old stories that should not be read through 'tainted glasses' of reverence." He continued, "…even young, intelligent, liberal ministers of our day are too smart to stick out their necks to defend the 'faith.' " Such taunting reminds us that the Pharoahs, Herods, and persecutors of our faith still abound! Darkness still bids for the minds and souls of billions. But remember, there are millions whose faith has survived the present tidal wave of educated doubt, licensed lust, and condoned carnality! We will “stick out our necks” for the “truth” clearly revealed in the Word of God! We believe the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Amen!

The children of light walk in good company. Abraham Lincoln said, "I believe the Bible is the best gift God has given to man. All the good from the Saviour of the world is communicated to us through this book."

George Washington said, "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."

Patrick Henry proclaimed, "The Bible is worth all other books which have been printed."

Andrew Jackson stated, "That book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests."

Daniel Webster said, "If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering; but if we neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity."

Compare these men of faith with the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Osama Bin Ladin, and Saddam Hussein. I'm sure you will agree that the "servants of light" have left a far greater legacy than have the "slaves of darkness."

You may be neither a Lincoln nor a Hitler, but neither is it possible for you to be neutral. For you are a living soul who will serve one master or the other, God or Satan! History reveals the fate of those who make a foolish choice.

Today the "Light of the World," Jesus Christ, is shining through darkness to open blinded eyes to Bible Faith. The Kingdom of God is recruiting Christian soldiers. Step forward while there is still time!

The battle rages, but we know who will be victorious in the end. Sin will be conquered and Satan and his "cronies" will descend to the Lake of Fire. The Lord in that day shall rule forever, and to His faithful soldiers of Light, he promises, "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne" (Revelation 3:21).
