The devil went down to Osama Bin Laden May 9, 2011

Yet another Uncle George Story from the man who is still seeking all the right answers to life's persistent questions. My momma always used to say, don't mix religion or politics with business, so I will just add, this is my own personal opinion and everybody has one.

The devil went down to Ben Laden. He was looking for a sole to steal. I believe with all my heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and that the The Lord is my Sheppard who can deliver us from evil or the evil one, the devil. I also believe the devil is real and is alive and well in the 21st century. I also believe the devil can tempt us and even let us hear his voice. You often hear testimony that criminals heard voices that made them commit crimes. I believe that the devil tempted Osama Bin Laden with a life of extreme wealth, world power, fields of marijuana, and wild sex with many women. Several of his friends and family broke off all contact because there was a turning point in his life. Some people believe that Osama Bin Laden was the devil in the flesh. I believe Bin Laden signed a contract with the devil. Others believe that they saw the devil’s face in the smoke at the World Trade Center. I believe they may have seen the devils signature.

I believe the Navy Seal Team 5 did Osama Bin Laden a huge favor. They put him out of his misery. They shoot horses don’t they? They shot him twice in the head and the chest. He died instantly. Sadly, I don’t think he had time to repent and ask forgiveness from the Lord. They did give him his last rights, but not too sure that did him any good with the Lord for forgiveness. But judgment is mine sayith the Lord. The Seal team saved Bin Laden from the shame and humiliation of a trail by a jury of his peers and a public hanging. They did him a favor by letting him escape his miserable life, which did not quiet end up like the devil promised. He spent 10 years of his life in isolation hiding from the rest of his family and the world, held captive within the prison of his own concrete tomb of a compound growing gray and old in near poverty conditions with a small TV playing with the remote control in a room filled with wires hanging from all the walls. He dared to venture out onto the rooftop for fresh air only a few times.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The devil temps us all. We all have our weaknesses. I have mine for sure. The devil tempted Jesus in the desert.

Matthew 4

Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness

1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[b]

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’[c]

7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’[d]

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’[e]

11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

We are all subject to being tempted by the devil. Resist the devil and he will flee.

<< James 4 >>
King James Version


1From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. 9Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. 10Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

11Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. 12There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

13Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. 16But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. 17Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
