Brand HaSatan: A Public Relations Coup (Part 3)
The following is an imaginary story taking place very early in the history of mankind. It is the third meeting between haSatan and a public relations demon.
Spindoc: Please come in and sit down. We still need to finalise your image. You have mentioned that you want to be as Almighty. One of His attributes is that He is omipresent, that He is everywhere at every time. What we need is a campaign to convince simple Man that you are.
HaSatan: What do you suggest?
Spindoc: Leave this one with me. I will contact your propaganda department after this meeting. If we can arrange that every time one of your demons creates trouble, they whisper that it is you, simple Man will assume that you are everywhere.
HaSatan: If you can get the demons to whisper ‘The devil made me do it,’ or ‘I am always under attack from the devil,’ enough times, simple Man will start to repeat it and if he repeats it often enough, he is going to believe it is me all the time. I like it.
Spindoc: The second of the attributes of Almighty is that He is all-powerful. This is going to be a bit more of a problem. As I see it, we are going to have to lay down a more long term strategy. Do you remember the first meeting we had?
HaSatan: The one where we discussed developing multiple religions?
Spindoc: Yes, that is the one. How about it if we have many of them fighting one another, say two sides: one representing darkness and the other light? We may even have some of the polytheistic ones having two factions of equal strength constantly battling it out with no outright winner?
HaSatan: The poly…whatsit?
Spindoc: I can see that the third attribute of Almighty, His omniscience, His all-knowing, will be eve a greater challenge. A polytheistic religion is where there is more than one god. I have an idea. What if we have three major races of simple Man over many centuries having a pantheon similar to each other but we will give the gods names that are recognisable with their race.
HaSatan: I cannot see how this is going to help me with my lack of power?
Spindoc: It is not meant to give you more power, and nothing can diminish the power of Almighty. What it will do, it will plant in the minds of simple Man that there is a battle between two high deities that have similar powers. Simple Man will become used to thinking that you are as powerful as Almighty.
HaSatan: I get it now! It is not the truth that matters, so much as what simple Man thinks is the truth.
Spindoc: Now to that third attribute of all-knowing. What we may have to do is set up a system by where you have messenger-demons bringing you information. Over time, with the plans for the other two attributes bearing fruit, it will appear as though you know it all.
Do this scenario ring any bells in your conscience? If it does, then you may also have been brought up with the lies Almighty Yahuah does not care what happens to His children. Nothing can be further from the truth. Yahuah gave His one and only begotten Son as a substitute, to take the eternal punishment upon Himself, so that all people may be reconciled with Him. Does this sound like He does not care?
If you want to accept Father’s offer of salvation through Messiah Yahusha, you need to ask Him in prayer along these lines. Use your own words but they must be genuine as Father knows our very hearts and nothing is hidden from Him.
“Father, I am a sinner who needs forgiveness through your Son, Messiah Yahusha. Please forgive me of all my past sins as I accept that, Messiah Yahusha my Saviour, has taken upon Himself my punishment. By your Spirit, help me to live a life worthy of His sacrifice. Thank you, Father, for making this way back to you.”
Father, we thank you for the power of your Word and that Word was made flesh in Messiah Yahusha so that in believing in His Life, Death and Resurrection we may have eternal life with you.
Remember, the Judge looks into your heart, mind and future.
In other words, when you say a Believer’s prayer you had better mean it.
If you have honestly said such a prayer as these, and truly renounced the sin in your life and accepted Father’s salvation through Messiah Yahusha, then please drop us an e-mail at ATC to let us know. This not only builds up our faith, it offers an opportunity to prayfully support you. Even if you have Believing friends or family, we at ATC would be privileged to pray for you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The fear of Yahuah is to hate evil.
I hate pride, arrogance, the evil way, and the perverse mouth” (Prov. 8:13).
Our Saviour welcomes all His Family to join in this memorial. If you have accepted Messiah Yahusha as your Master and Saviour please take the next few moments to seek Father and to ensure that all is right between Him and you and between you and your Brothers and Sisters. If not, please put this right before continuing.
If you have not yet accepted Him into your life, then we encourage you to seek Him while it is still possible, as time is running out. When He returns or if you pass away then it will be too late. Please do not partake of the matzah and wine as in doing so, it gives thanks for the broken body (matzah) and shed blood (wine) for and a witness of salvation.
On the night of the Master’s betrayal, He took the matzah, blessed it and broke it saying ‘This is my Body broken for you; take and eat it as a memorial to Me.’
Bless the matzah saying: Blessed are you, O Yahuah our `Elohiym, King of the universe, who brings forth matzah from the earth.
Break and eat the matzah (sharing it if within a group setting):
After the meal He took the Cup of Blessing, blessed it saying ‘This is my Blood poured out for you for the remission of sins; take and drink it as a memorial to me.’
Bless the wine saying: Blessed are you, O Yahuah our `Elohiym, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.
Drink the wine (sharing it if within a group setting):
Thanksgiving prayer: Blessed are you, O Yahuah our `Elohiym, King of the universe, who gives us, in Yahusha, all that we will ever need. In your lovingkindness and mercy, you rebuild broken lives. You bless us, in Yahusha, with a perfect blessing. Ameyn.
Please note the up-and-coming special day.
8th. New Moon – 09/11/2018
Father willing, we will meet again next Shabbat.
“Y’varekh’kha Yahuah v’yishmerekha, (May Yahuah bless you and keep you) Ya’er Yahuah panav eleikha vichunekka, (May Yahuah make His face to shine upon you show you favour) Yissa Yahuah panav eleikha v’yasem l’kha (May Yahuah lift up His face toward you and shalom v’yasem l’kha shalom.” give you peace.)
