The evil that is in the world
As a Pastor, I would like to write about the evil that is in the world. I do not understand how people are so blinded to evil and its origins. The bible cannot be understood if it is read literally. The bible is understood when the types, shadows, allegories, figures are properly seen through spiritual understanding. 
Genesis is the book of beginnings, therefore if evil comes from a creature other than the human beings God created, then that would be recorded in the book of the beginnings. Our scholars of "fiction and imagination", make up their own Genesis for the devil. They conclude that God should have added something in the book of beginnings, so they inject the devil falling from heaven before Eden. Make no mistake, God missed nothing and the devil can be seen in Genesis clearly.

The evil in this world - Adam's nature
This is a continuation on the thought of Adams nature. More explicitly the serpent part of that nature. 
The serpent was that poisonous thought which comes from the heart and lies concerning the known truth. That produces rebellion and resentments. The serpent is the contrary thought that comes from within out of the heart (Mat 7:21). 
I would like to point out that Jesus dealt with this in two particular places. 
John 3:13-14
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

Evil in the world - last segment (Part 1 of 2)
The book of revelation will reveal what happened in the early church as well as what is to come in the future. The book of revelation is not a book which can be read like a newspaper. Its words must be seen as carrying greater meaning than the literal. The 12th chapter of the book of revelation is what the scholars of fiction and imagination use to perpetrate the idea of a devil kicked out of heaven before the book of beginnings was written. They conclude simply that God did not give us everything he should have in the book of beginnings; that he purposely left out the devil falling from heaven, so he could reveal it to us in the book of revelations. This is simply not true. The book of revelations has nothing to do with the period before the creation. This will readily be seen when the true meaning is unfolded before us. I love the King James Version of the bible because it so clearly reveals the path of the serpent from the Garden of Eden to the end of the age.

Evil in the world - last segment (Part 2 of 2)
The furnace of fire.
Vs. 42 of Mt. 13 is speaking of the furnace God has created which burns up holiness and sanctification. Without the church and true doctrine it cannot be gone through. The furnace of fire is the age in which we live. It was typified in Egypt. When God sent the children of Israel into Egypt for 400 years it was to burn off some of their sinfulness and iniquity.

  1. BAPTISM
    BAPTISM
    The proper "mode" or method of baptism is important, too. The word baptism comes from a Greek word, baptizo, which means "to dip, plunge, immerse, or be overwhelmed." It is clear from this definition that the word baptism means "immersion." Only by immersion can one be identified with Jesus Christ in burial.
  2. SERVICE
    SERVICE
    It is a church where God is experienced, anointed and powerful preaching and teaching is received, worship is celebrated, friendships are cultivated, and prayer is practiced.
  3. PRAYER
    PRAYER
    Prayer is practice in many different forms, from kneeling in the pew or at the altar to the laying on of hands by the ministry. We believe in the power of prayer.
  4. CHOIR
    CHOIR
    We have many different groups in our church, from the adult choir to the praise teams. All with the same mind set, to glorify God and help His people into worship. Anointed singing and playing make the difference and experience you'll never forget.

  7. ONE
    ONE
    We believe that Jesus is the one and only living God. [1Ti 3:16 KJV] 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
