What’s that you say? Muttering incantations. Feigning surprise at the power of “god” manifested in his life. Power from whom? A little “god.” The one who temporarily controls all that is in the world. Except for the ones marked by God because they are His children. The ones whose names are written in His Book of Life.
Pastor writes his own epitaph/books. Gee whizzz, the Wizard of Wickedness wants us to record his wiley, weird, wascally words to encourage the church body at large.
Weally?! “Just heard that for the very first time! I like that! Get that in your notes.”-Pastor Scott (referring to divine, instantaneous, wisdom dripping from his lips during sermon). You are strange Pastor. Offering up strange fire. Demonically inspired revelations which so closely mirror God’s word it seems almost angelic. Actually it is. An Angel of Light, sent to deceive. Even that Usurper himself, the prince of Darkness. Satan and his minions of manipulation. Wizards, warlocks, witches, wicked pastors, drivel-driven deacons, calloused captains, dumb dads, & man-pleasing moms. Sigh. Repent before the Man of Righteousness HIMSELF appears.
But God says, “And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord” (Leviticus 10:1-2). “And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village” (Luke 9:54-56). “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:13-14). “And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof” (Ezekiel 9:4). “For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned” (Matthew 12:37).
