House of God

The adversary of Christ

Is one who tries

To overthrow him

And take his seat

On the throne

That would be our ego

 

Who is ruling our house

Our mind or our spirit

Adversary

Art: Virgin Mary, artist unknown

Every story has a hero or heroine

And an adversary

And the story is written

Within a time and a place

 

And the story line is such that

Said hero or heroine

Must overcome the adversary

To save the world

 

Or maybe the story is such that

The hero must overcome

The adversary

To save the heroine

 

The Bible is such a story

The hero is Jesus Christ

And he came to save the world

To set us free from sin

The adversary

 

David slew Goliath with a stone

Daniel survived the lion’s den

And Christ overcame the world

 

We are either the hero

Or the adversary

 

If Christ is with us

Who can be against us

 

I John 4:5

“…because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

 

The Mind

Art: Immaculate Conception by Giovanni Bapttista Tiepolo

When the spirit

Puts her foot

On the head

Of the serpent

Game over

 

The mind is

A worthy adversary

A worthy opponent

But no match

For the spirit

 

Spirit trumps mind

She created the mind

 

Overcome the mind

Do not see it

As an obstacle

But as a stepping stone
