Recognizing the Dark Day before Us. We know where Hate originates. The demons that Jesus and the Apostles encountered did not grow old and die. They did not fly away to another planet. They have lived here a long time, learning what moves men to do the things they want to see and feel. Ephesians 6:12 because we have a struggle, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places. Remember, Jesus did not curse or hate those who were abusing him. He knew they did not understand why they hated him so much. They will be rewarded for their actions, just as all those imitating Jesus actions will.
