The Enmity

This is a subsidiary post of The Cause of Persecution.

There is an enmity between good and evil.  Like light and darkness, they cannot coexist.  This enmity between good and evil permeates all of creation.  We cannot avoid it; we can only recognize where we stand with relation to it – and respond accordingly.

Thus, this enmity of which I am speaking is the enmity.  Jesus leads the forces of good; Satan leads the forces of evil.  Choose your master.

KEYSTONE VERSE

Genesis 3:15  –  “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed…”  –  This fundamental enmity is not caused by anything God does, but rather by who God is.  When you are with God, you bear the enmity directed toward Him.
