I was very perplexed by two things I noticed, one being the reference to "it", and other being the lack of capitalization we usually afford to Jesus
Christ as Divine. If you have found Him in your life, then I wonder at the ambiguity, for you would know Him as alive and a part of you, during any
point of life. It takes a certain care, and a connection, and a willingness to understand that our lives have worth when in tune again with God.
I also am aware that the occultic works very opposite in this sense, and encourages man/woman to develop pride, and ego, and self-worth to the point
of spiritual blindness. It trains people in the voluminous arts of self-deception, and while making them feel like kings and queens, seals away true
virtues from their desire, and insulates with a cozy, self-satisfied feeling instead. Anything is fair to partake in, or be a part of, and instead of
realizing that "our righteousness is as rags" before a forgiving God, take up self-serving causes and promote the individual growth as "one who is
becoming God". It's the very difference between heaven and hell.
Or, as put simply, The love of God, opposed to the love of self, and the love of the neighbour opposed to the love of the world. All worldly
temptations fall under the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and te pride of life - the three great temptations of Christ embodied these. We
are also promised that we will not be tempted beyond our means to resist, by God. He has blessed His words for our benefit, but too few take the time
to read them these hectic days!
We have authority over demons, in Jesus Christ, which is a long claim to hear, but a true one. My prayers are answered constantly, and not a day goes
by that I don't enjoy the perfect peace of God in mind and body
Faith and virtue are their own rewards.
