Do you Understand that satan tried to give us over to The Messiah if He Would Worship him?
Are We his to Even Give to Anyone? Are we Even his At all? Do you Understand that satan thinks you are his an he is holding you Captive? We were All given over to satan in the beginning because we followed him in sin, but WE have been Redeemed by God Himself out of this realm satan rules. Now do you see why The Day of the Lord is Vengeance?
Please Ask God for Forgiveness. satan knows he has little time left.
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
