The Difference Between God and the Devil

Differences between God and the Devil

Due to different religious beliefs and teachings all over the world, most people are not able to distinguish between God and Satan. As a result of this, most people have found themselves worshiping the devil without their knowledge. The following are the main differences between God and Satan

God is the creator of everything while Satan is a creature. According to Genesis chapter one, God created heaven and earth.Only his spirit was moving over the waters at the beginning. Lucifer was the servant of God and he was given the position of the chief musician (Ezekiel 28:1-16). Due to pride and rebellious, he wanted to take the place of God and this made God to cast him down to earth, and his name was changed to Satan.

All power and authority belong to God, but Satan only counterfeits this power. This is evidenced well through the creation story as God used word to create everything.He had the power to silence the water in the red sea as well as giving life to dead bones according to Ezekiel 37. On the other hand, Satan never gave life to anybody, he never performed any miracle and the miracle he did of turning rod to a snake, his snake was swallowed by God rod. According to Ephesians 1: 21, after Jesus resurrected God gave him power over all principalities and authority implying that Satan has no power or authority.

God is unchangeable and has a good plan towards man kind while the devil is wicked killer and destroyer. Revelation 22:13 the Bible records that God is alpha and omega meaning that he is the same today, yesterday and forever.God always has good plans for humankind to bring hope and bright future.Satan is the wicked spirit and he brings temptation to man.After God had created Adam and Eve, Satan in the form of snake appeared to them and through his lies, he lured them to sin thus separating them from God. In the book of Job chapter one to five, Satan also visited job and afflicted him with all sort of sicknesses leading to death of all his sons.

Satan works with demons and evil spirits and their destination is hell while God collaborates with Jesus and the holy spirit and heaven are his dwelling place. John 14:6 records that Jesus is the way the truth and life and no one can go to the father except through him. It further explains that Jesus went to prepare a place(Heaven) for righteous people. On the other hand, 2nd Peter 2:4 records that God did not spare Satan and his evil spirits after rebelling him and he have already cast them in hell.

Satan came to still and destroy (John 10:20-29) humanity while Jesus comes to save what devil had stolen. Jesus saved us from sin through dying on the cross and through his blood we are purified. Satan stills humankind through sinning thus separating them from God.( Roman 6:23) records wages of sin is death but fruit of righteousness is eternity.

Are You Going To Mars? Nephew Says He Wants To Be The First Plumber On Mars

Okay so first of all, never saw this coming in my lifetime. If you are living today then you are probably aware of the internet. If you are aware of the internet, I am sure you have a social profile and have been introduced to Elon Musk’s grand plan to colonize mars. If you haven’t, well my nephew has and now he is determined to be the first plumber to walk the red planet. He’s forward thinking, what can I say – he gets it from me. His company http://starplumbingcompany.com/ is destined to be the first LLC on mars, specializing in water heater repairs! In all seriousness, someone is going to need to be in charge of the plumbing. Think about it, out of all the plumbers in the world there are only a small handful who are even looking for an opportunity like this one. He is young and has been in the business for a while, why not shoot for the stars? Or a the closest planet.

I wonder what they have in mind for plumbing on Mars? I am guessing that it will be some kind of composting set up but maybe they will simply burn it off. The innovations to plumbing that will be made with our adventures to nearby planets will be nothing short of remarkable. This goes for all industries across the board. The new products will be marketed as “mars patented hot water heaters” and so forth. Supposedly Musk plans on having a colony on Mars before his death and honestly, I hope so! If my nephew is still in the plumbing business, and I am sure he will be, perhaps and can offer his skills on the red planet. A plumbers service fee for traveling thousands of miles should be at least $500 bucks an hour! All joking aside, my nephew is constantly talking about the mars mission, and I wish him the best of luck for pursuing his dreams.

What are your thoughts on Musk’s mission to Mars? Is this apart of God’s plan? Are we destined to be the space travelers Musk expects of us?

A lot of people in my community think it is absolutely ludicrous to think humans should be populated other planets, especially when there is so much work to be done. I have become quite fascinated with Elon Musk over the past few years and saw an interview where he was proposed the same objection. Paraphrasing what he said, basically the cost to explore the multi planetary mission is only a fraction of the cost of the US budget. He continues by saying it is smart to allow a fraction of the cost to be put towards the our future livelihood outside of planet Earth. He sees the mission as “insurance for our species to survive unpredicted incidents that could kill us all off”. I say fair game! He explains it so well that one cannot disagree with his reasoning other than harboring conflicting theological opinions.

If I can recall the bible doesn’t say anything about the manned departure from earth or anything close to it. And it certainly doesn’t state plumbers are not allowed to work on Mars!
