Friedrich Nietzsche, the son of a Lutheran pastor, wrote a book called Antichrist. In it he called Christianity the one great curse, the one enormous, innermost perversion, the moral blemish of mankind. He said, “I regard Christianity as the most seductive lie that ever existed. I condemn it.” A young Austrian named Adolf Hitler, read Nietzsche’s books and was fascinated by them. He became a disciple of Nietzsche and his philosophy becoming the epitome of the title Antichrist and a foreshadow of the Antichrist to come. The result was The Third Reich, the Second World War, the Holocaust, and millions of people dying. Behind world history and the news are spiritual things; good and evil. What you do in the spiritual realm, what you believe and what you receive makes a difference. Hitler is evidence of that, going back to Nietzsche. So turn away from the ways of the enemy. Live as a child of light and you’ll prevail and crush the serpent under your feet. The enemy is real. But God is even more real!
Scripture: Eph. 5:8-9
TODAY’S MISSION – Today take the war you’re in more seriously. Reject and turn down anything of the evil one.

Strange connections. Friedrich Nietzsche wrote a book called “Thus Spake Zarathustra.” Richard Strauss wrote some music inspired by it (musicians will recognize the overtone symbolism in the theme), and this was eventually used in the film, “2001: A Space Odyssey.” That movie is a tribute to supposed human evolution, resulting in the appearance of the “star child.” “Antichrist” would be the appropriate description.February 17, 2017 at 6:58 pm #128536
Yes!!! What we consume in our mind and spirit matter very, very much. Satan gets that, big time. Sadly, billions of people on this earth do not. Lord, in Your mercy, please convict us when we are partaking of unclean water as we seek to quench that thirst that ultimately only You can quench. I am so often predisposed to settle for dirty water. Stir our longing for the living water that comes from You, and to be unwilling to settle for anything less. In Yeshua’s mighty name.
John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."
