The Devil comes into your life masquerading as an angel of light, throughout the years using your weaknesses he gains your loyalty. He knows the law very well and has learned to utilize it for his own selfish gain. He takes advantage of your friendship and manipulates full control over every aspect of your existence. He’s a prideful bully who’s unrighteous craft has you isolated and uncertain of everything, relying on him for guidance. And once you are no longer found useful to him he discards you, treacherously betrays your heart in order to further his Diotrephic agenda. He proceeds to take a healthy congregation and fabricate chaos and division. His native tongue is a lie, he does nothing but deceive and build disciples for his own preeminence, and those weak of spirit follow their new task master. He emboldens behavioural delinquencies, flattering the worldly minded he facilitates a recruited beast with 3 heads. He’s now the corrupt leader puppeteering his slaves into submission. He continues spreading malicious nonsense about the faithful, those he has used and abused. Not satisfied with that, he even refuses to welcome other believers who might expose him for who he truly is. He also stops those who want to do so and puts them out of the church. If you cannot be devoured he’ll spit you out. He loves power, control, money, and he’ll accuse you of everything he is found guilty of. His track record speaks for itself, leaving nothing but a trail of dismantle, depletion, division and sorrow. Breaking up families and shutting down any hope. He's a stumbling block.
The Devil has the world so why bother with it, his focus is among us, a wolf in sheep’s clothing. And though some Christians have been reading such spiritual threats in the Bible for decades, the moment comes and they can’t discern right from wrong.
This has been happening in the church for ages, and sadly will continue until the Day God sets justice for all who have been greatly sinned against. Take courage, brethren,...
For those who survive and heal from the oppressors venom, know this, God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you, and give relief to you who are troubled. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might.
Paul knew some of his brethren in Colossae were being deluded and taken captive by all sorts of persuasive deceptions, and so he instructed them what to do in order to protect themselves from such spiritual threats. Join us in this study of Colossians 2:4-8.
The kingdom of His beloved Son, the body, the church; was proclaimed in all creation. Join us in our studies this session as we journey Paul's pen within the minds of his brethren in Colossae.

In 1 Peter 3:21, we see the explicit inspired words of Peter the Apostle of Jesus the Christ. Was he teaching the Christians of the 1st Century that they were saved by "water?" What exactly did Peter mean within the context? This and more we explore in this exclusive LOCALS podcast session.
POLL question: "was Peter the Apostle married?"
