A chapter in the book A Soldier of Christ

Two Kingdoms

by Bicpen


A Prince roams the earth inviting the condemned,
his power is hypnotizing, just submit to him and all
will be well.  In his company you will find a strange delusion
revealed, that you are free, the world is at your beckoning call.

His seat of power is a place of wrath, he is
cruel at the very least. His messengers veiled angels
of light, surely that shows the darkness on which he rides.  His
custom is to give the heart's desire, sin and all it's worth;
he would willingly give a life for his cause, that
is why he seeks the lost.  Evil is a word that he
personifies, Hell is the place where this dark prince resides.

A King came to earth not condemned for he was
just. His power is one of mercy and righteousness.
In his company the heart rejoices, his love is
that weapon that breaks the chains of the devil's grip.

His Kingdom is one of the purest lights his knowledge is
truth. His life he gave for the liberty that presides,
his blood cleanses from a fallen race.  In his truth
man can stand against this evil prince, until in
Heaven he will know that blessed rest. When he comes
you will have peace forged in eternity, brought to
a place where we receive of that blessed Christ.

Therefore, the Kingdoms are at war. Many a soul knows this
spiritual truth. The warfare of the Prince is all that is
in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life; against it stands … “The Soldier of Christ.”

The King has called him to fight these great weapons
of destruction, by the word of truth, by the power of God;
by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on
the left. As the war rages you might find yourself wounded,
by God's grace I pray you will survive. In comfort I
remember the one that was spoken by Esaias the prophet;
saying, himself took our infirmities and bare our sickness.

Remember also that the Spirit likewise also helpeth
our infirmities, “… for we know not what we should pray for
as we ought: But the Spirit itself maketh intercession
for us with groaning's, which cannot be uttered.”
