Pride

Pride is a dangerous foe to humanity. It can literally drive the presence of God out of your life and cause Him to combat you. God is an exceptionally loving being as seen in John3:16 but He also has wrath. He has standards and a holy order that He will not have trampled on or people ignorant of.

A key characteristic of the enemy is Isaiah 14:12-13 – How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art though cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north

This behavior and ideal got Satan thrown out of heaven. Pride especially for a human being is in direct opposition of God.

James 4:6 – But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Surrender to God is important to pursue God and not have him resist you in the process.

Proverbs 16:18 – Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Get it? Fall as in Fallen Angel?

Please take head to the lesson to be learned from what Satan did. You cannot make it without God’s help in these last and wicked days.

John 3:16 God loves you immeasurably and gave His son so that you can have eternal life with Christ. Please run to him as he can provided a way of escape from this wicked world.
