Your life is not a runaway train but a roller coaster. Sin is seizing control and trying to turn it into a merry-go-round. The devil shoots flaming darts to get you to do so. Flaming darts are fire stolen from the altar, pieces of truth used for evil. Flaming darts are the devil’s judgments. Faith is trust in God’s Judgment: Jesus Christ crucified and risen from the dead: The Truth, The Word of God, who is consuming Fire. You will not fear Satan’s judgments if you trust God’s Judgment. You will pass through death and shout, “What a ride!”
#38 in our series from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and #7 on warfare.
