Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Every Easter Makes Him More Nervous

Zooming out from planet Earth, and going to the Eternal Counsels of Time, we find Lucifer, the angel of light and a creation of God. He has the bright idea of mounting a rebellion along with 1/3 of the angels of Heaven against his Creator. (Ezekiel 28, Isaiah 14) Not being able to see the future can be such a handicap, for if he could have seen the future, he probably wouldn't have pulled that stunt. At this point, he is referred to as Satan and dwells upon the earth. It doesn't take him long to encounter Adam and Eve, also created of God, whom Satan tempted with knowledge much to God's chagrin:
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. (Gen 3:15)
So we see that Satan was not so successful trying to get mankind to join Team Hell, as God said in that verse, He would put us at odds with the Evil One, which is a good thing. He also tells the fallen angel that the seed of man will bruise his head (Jesus who took on flesh), while he will nip at mankind's heels. 



There is a reason why the Bible tells us to test the spirits for not every thing that seems like it is from God actually is. The discernment test is does this person/teacher say that Jesus came in the flesh? (I Pet 4:2) If Jesus came in the flesh and was that flesh was destroyed for the sin of man, then this is the bruising of Satan's head as promised. That is why every spirit that does not confess that Jesus came in the flesh is the spirit of antichrist. (I Pet. 4:3)

So as we Christians look up and wait expectantly for the imminent return of Christ, Satan bides his time in a nervous, thrashing dread. Starting wars, running banking cartels, drug "wars",  corrupting governments and who knows what all.. He's just being given enough rope to really hang himself, and one day it will all become clear.

This world will be a distant memory for the redeemed of God. All this striving will have long since ceased, and Satan will be in his pit as a sideshow attraction (Isaiah 14:16). Jesus Christ will be exalted and we cannot imagine how awesome it will be. Be sure to check out my Are you going to heaven videos if you have not yet repented and trusted Jesus Christ to your savior and Lord. I promise its not the same old fundy lines you've heard before. This is more important than all the prepping and election stuff, because all that is fixing to pass away, but your death is sure and eternity is forever. Easter is a great day to get right with God.
