The Living and the Living Dead

A BUSY WORLD
WARNING: Stop reading the moment you feel offended or simply carry on reading regardless and forever hold your peace.
All over the world human beings are scurrying around like ants doing their daily thing. They are split into two groups, namely, the living and the living dead. If you have accepted a transfer from darkness into Light then you are amongst the living. If not, then you are amongst the living dead, that is, you are spiritually dead and groping around in the darkness that has you bound. "(God) who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love;" (Col 1:13)
The fact of these two groups is clearly depicted in Matt. 8:22. A certain man wanted to leave everything and follow Jesus and said that he would do so, but first wanted to bury his father. "But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead."
THE PICTURE OF DARKNESS
The whole world lies in darkness. It is an actual place. It is considered a kingdom the kingdom of darkness. This kingdom has an unseen control center at the helm of which is a spirit being called Satan. Under his command are millions upon millions of demon spirits that go out amongst the living dead humans with the task of keeping them in darkness and to act upon those who have been translated out of the power of darkness with all the means at their disposal.
Satan previously had access to Heaven, but we see that his access to Heaven was closed to him and the fact that he is the deceiver of the whole world. The kingdom of darkness also goes under the name of The City of Babylon, which is on the verge of merging with the physical world so that the whole earth becomes one with it in an unstoppable frenzy of evil. "And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him." (Rev. 12:9)
Satan actually offered the kingdom of darkness to Jesus, proving that this fallen angel was in control of it and its human subjects. "And he led him up, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, To thee will I give all this authority, and the glory of them: for it hath been delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship before me, it shall all be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, It is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." (Luke 4:5-8)
Jesus did not refute the devil's claim to having power over the world. The "kingdoms of the world" are all the nations of it and the authority (power) over it was "delivered" to Satan by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. In fact, Satan wrested it from Adam by an act of deceit.
So what are the activities of the living dead?
The whole world dances to the tune of Satan, not only musically to the beat of rock 'n roll, rap and heavy metal - underpinned by drugs and sensuality but also through mind control. Our thoughts are not always our own. Our minds are constantly bombarded by the words of demons who simply impart their suggestions to our spiritual minds to which they have free access. Bear in mind that we are spiritual beings with a physical covering that offers no resistance to other spirits, such as demons. We are spiritually blind and limited to physical interaction with fellow humans, but demons have no such limitations.
The entertainment industry what we see on our TV screens and in movie theatres is largely inspired by special demonic forces assigned to concentrate on delivering evil content for our daily consumption.
The minds of producers and scriptwriters are being orchestrated by a special contingent appointed by Satan to feed the world with strife, discord, promiscuity, blasphemy and "blueprints" for criminal activities. Soap operas, especially, are designed to brainwash human minds to the point of no return. These daily shows depict conflict, strife, jealousy, hatred, murder, revenge, fornication, wife-swopping and general godlessness as the norm for human society. All those involved in the execution of these movies and shows, including the actors, have taken ownership of what they do. That is why Satan awards them with Oscars and praise at the various ceremonies for their performances every year.
So blind are those that adhere to the system of the invisible kingdom of darkness that they do not know that it has stamped their lifestyle passports with visible ink, which spells "The American Dream". And all it stands for has been exported to every corner of the world so that it has become the motto amongst men, compliments of that spiritual city, "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
WE ARE WARNED
Yes, whether we believe it or not, we are living in the kingdom of darkness and we are being fed its fare 24/7. The living dead, being oblivious to the truth, love the darkness. "And this is the judgment, that the light is come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil." (John 3:19)
We are warned not to love the things of the world. "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the vain glory of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." (1John 2:15,16)
It is made explicitly clear that those who love the darkness are enemies of God. "Ye 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." (James 4:4)
But we need not remain in darkness. Jesus Christ, who translated us out of the power of darkness into His Kingdom of Light, said, "I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me may not abide in the darkness." (John 12:46)
ARE YOU SLEEPING?
The Rapture is imminent. The living are awake and are watching and waiting. The living dead are asleep and will be caught unawares.
No-one in their right mind should want to live on earth after the Rapture.
If you are still a member of the Living Dead, then you are fast asleep and you are about to become an unwilling actor in a reality horror movie played out all over the world with no escape.
You will be smack-bang in the middle of a holocaust tsunami with nowhere to run but straight into the clutches of terror, torture and death.
And the pit of hell awaits your arrival where your former American Dream aspirations turn into a reality nightmare of torment by the very demons that held you captive in the world of darkness while you were on earth. This will be your self-imposed destiny for eternity.
While you were on earth you were given the opportunity to choose between life and death. You loved darkness rather than the Light and you scoffed at the idea of the latter, dismissing it as a crutch for the intellectually-impaired. If you believed Darwin rather than God, then hell is the final evolution level where all fellow-monkeys will shriek and suffer together.
Make a move from darkness into the Light while you still have God-given breath in your body, which will place you in alert mode for the Rapture to come.
