The Bible shows us that the true reason for this life is this; before the earth was created by God, He reined over the heavens and all the angels as He does now. Satan also call lucifer and the devil rebelled against God, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit. God being the Great Creator that he is used satan’s rebellion to create a better heaven. Earth is the location that He is using to allow total freedom of choices, thereby creating beings that are choosing Him and His Son over satan and any type of rebellion or rejection of God. The Bible even says that at the end of this creation the ones that were faithful will judge the angels. 1 Corinthians 6:3-4
You see lucifer wanted to be God and he rebelled with 1/3 of the angels. God created human beings and we have a choice to join satan’s rebellion or join his Sons Jesus. It’s that simple. By not joining Jesus you are taking a choice . When you say to yourself and others I just don’t believe in God or I don’t believe in Jesus you are being blinded by satan & his rebellion. There’s no in between you are either on God’s side under His Son and commander Jesus or you are in satan’s rebellion. Whose army will you be in.
If you say you are following the commander & chief Jesus are you reading His commandments? You can’t truly follow the commander in chief unless you are reading and living what he told you to do. Jesus told us to do much more than just hear about him. Hearing about Him does not in any way make you a Christian. Do you believe in him? Do you truly believe that He was God in the flesh and He truly died on the cross for your sins therefore paying the price of those sins for you? What do you do to show it? Believing takes much more then hearing and having knowledge of something. When you believe you take action. I heard someone say “Don’t tell me what you believe, I will hear what you say and see the things you do and I will tell you what you believe.
Here are the Bible verses to that shows that satan also call lucifer rebelled against God and His Son Jesus.
1. Christ said: Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
2. Ezekial we read Ezekiel 28:12-17 ..”`You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire,  turquoise and beryl.  Your settings and mountings  were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared. 14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. 15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you. 16 Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. 17 Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.
3. Isaiah 14:12-14 How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! 13 You said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain.  14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.”
4. And in Revelations we read…. Revelation 12:3-5 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
We have a choice to join satan’s rebellion or join his Sons Jesus Christ
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
To be a follower of Christ
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; …
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while. Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. …
John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
How to join Jesus Christ and His army against satan
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
When you ask Jesus to come into you, He performs what you doctor did for you when you were born in this life. Jesus smacks your spiritual behind and your spirit is born. Jesus is waiting with His arms open, all you have to do is ask Him to come into your life and then be willing to submit to His leading in your life and by studying His words of life in the New Testament.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
Ask Jesus to come into your life, and to forgive all your sins today. Repent means making a complete U Turn in your life. Find a church you like and get into fellowship with others who have joined the army of God under the leadership of Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
