Striving to be as succinct as possible, know that this life is about preparation for life in Eternity as we’re all in a form of spiritual bootcamp and we’re designated and chosen players in the midst of an unfathomable struggle between good v. evil that was initiated “before the beginning of Time” in the Spiritual World…a Realm that surrounds us but does not permit our access due to the decaying flesh that constrains our eternal spirit created in the image of God. We are observing, within the Realm of Time, a war between our Creator and His nemesis, a rebellious cherub angel (Ezekiel 28:11-17), that infused sin into the Kingdom of God and initiated a coup d’état in the Kingdom that mandated the creation of matter, Time, this Universe, our genome. That rebellious cherub angel and his allies were extricated from the Kingdom and placed within the constraints of Time and physics upon this Earth. That war was declared “before the beginning of Time” (2 Timothy 1:9-10) through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and articulated first in Genesis 3:15 and the strategy used by God for victory is pictured in Genesis 3:21 and victory was announced 4k-years later at Golgotha with the words of our Messiah, “It is finished!”
This struggle between good v. evil and the restoration of all things by God is the reason the Son of God entered Time i.e. “to destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8b). Though Satan is a defeated foe, our struggle with his refuse remains valid as God uses Satan to separate the wheat from the chaff, the sheep from the goats, the redeemed from the rebellious. Those who are redeemed by faith in Jesus Christ and have received the Spirit of God possessing eyes to see and ears to hear can see this cosmic struggle manifesting before our eyes as we watch the armies of Allah-Satan/Islam and their hatred for the Nation of Israel and the redeemed of Jesus Christ, the Christian. The redeemed in Christ can see Satan at work in our Nation, America, in the hearts of those who advocate for the murder of babies in the womb via Roe v. Wade (1973) and espouse the defilement of God’s Covenant of Marriage via the debauchery of LGBTQ celebrated in our streets via Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) and we can see Satan at work through the deception of Darwin and Marx and Lenin as evidenced by the brainwashing of America’s youth in Evolution, Atheism, Communism, manifesting in a desperate desire to destroy the Christian foundation of America’s Constitutional Republic.
Our primary function or purpose in this life is to ally with our Creator, Jesus Christ, and come alongside Him in faith and obedience and war against the evil One until God the Father brings all things to a righteous conclusion in Judgment (Revelation 20:11-15). Those who trust in our Creator, Jesus Christ, as their Lord for the mediation of sin will find glory and honor and life in His Kingdom subsequent to the death of the body in Time and those who reject our Creator will die in their sin as an ally of Satan and they will ultimately die in Hell as our Holy God will not permit unrepentant sin to enter His Kingdom subsequent to the death of the body in Time (Revelation 21:27). This is “What is Life all about honestly?”
