The devil understands the truth, as he knows that every person who rejects the word of God is under his control. You may project yourself differently to the people by giving them the impression that you are a child of God, but your number one enemy knows the truth, Satan knows all your true colours. He knows that every person who rejects Jesus and His word is under his influence, he is part of his kingdom of darkness. You are not part of the kingdom of light because of what you are saying with your own mouth, your heart reveals the true state of your spiritual leaning. If your heart still fights against the word of God, you are still ruled by the devil.
Unfortunately, everyone continued to sin, but God forgave time and time again, and always created a new covenant with them. God wanted his people to be happy forever, he wanted to erase the sin of the first human beings and all who came after them. This is God’s plan of salvation, and the path he walks with us is called salvation history. Through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, God made a new and promising covenant with his people that from that moment on, it
David was reassured of God’s plan and purpose for his life. According to Bernhard( qtd. in Deffinbaugh) “No single psalm has expressed more powerfully man’s prayer of confidence ‘out of the depths’ to the God whose purpose alone gives meaning to the span of life, from womb to tomb”( bible.org). David had a hard life from growing up a small shepherd boy to becoming a king filled with many trials he had to face and many enemies along the way. David has dealt with a lot of loss throughout his life among the many sins and ungodly acts he commented as king.
Imagine being a parent and watching your children suffer and die knowing you have the ability to save them. As a parent, you would do anything to save your children; even take their place in suffering. God watched humanity suffer and saved every person by taking their sins. Jesus suffered for humanity by the will of God as the ultimate sacrifice, through the crucifixion and resurrection He proved Gods word to be true. To understand why Jesus had to suffer for our sins it is important to realize that the result of the cross is ultimately forgiveness, or taking someone’s debt upon oneself.
Hucks guardians, Widow Douglas and Miss Watson, practice Christianity. Huck and Jim on the other hand, believe in superstition: they look for signs for answers rather than God. They look for bad signs in everything; if anything bad happened to them they 're sure to have a sign that was leading to it. Though their superstitions are silly, they do have reason to believe bad things will happen to them: they live in a world where nature is dangerous and people act with hatred. Huck has a realization that the Christian “good’’ isn 't really “good”; they believe Huck will be condemned to hell for saving Jim from slavery.
Despite the fact that he does not appear as a human figure, he controls the thoughts and actions of the Puritan society, serving as the ultimate threat. The Devil influences the villagers of Salem, Massachusetts by using their ongoing fear of him to manipulate their thoughts and actions in a manner to set himself in the highest position by the end of the Act 1. As the Puritans lean toward blaming the Devil for their misgivings and suspicions, he gains control of their thoughts. Ruth and Betty pretend to fall ill after Reverend Parris catches them in the forest with Tituba and other girls, partaking in what is considered to be witchcraft: an act that defies the laws of femininity in the Puritan society. Mrs. Putnam does not buy her daughter Ruth’s act; rather, she sees it as “‘the Devil’s touch”’ which “‘is heavier than sick”’ (13).
There is not a single truly perfect person in the world, but people do not always initially realize this. Humanity will consciously resist all evil coming their way, while the subconscious craves it. The devil in the story is the subconscious and innate desires of humanity because he reveals that, “Evil is the nature of mankind. Evil must be your only happiness. Welcome again, my children, to the communion of your race” (Hawthorne 8).
Like Judas he was a traitor because he made a promise but failed to maintain it. William Wharton represents the Devil, when introduced he was described as a “demon”. He gave himself the nickname “Wild Bill” which how big the ego he has for himself. Satan is also known for giving himself nicknames and being narcissistic. He
The song sung by the Israelites to praise God for their redemption from slavery reveals their obsession with conquest. Although they acknowledge God’s power, the nature of the song indicates a vast misunderstanding of their relationship with God. The song sung by the Israelites after their redemption from slavery reveals an obsession with conquest, and a disregard for the true nature of God. The Israelites talk excessively about how their enemies will be “gripped” by agony and fear of the Lord’s strength. The use of the word grip suggests that their enemies would be trapped and disempowered by their fear.
Not the liars, thieves, and murderers he already has them under his spell. Satan with take a deceiving look to move and manipulate. From the book of Matthew “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheets clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15). Some may say Satan is the master mover of human life, others may see God as the prime mover. Satan is a victim of his own
Puritan leaders, felt it was their job to convince the world that there was a God, and one of the ways in which they did this was showing how the Natives revealed the presence of the devil, in hopes that others will join their pure community out of fear. Throughout The Narrative Of The Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson, her prejudice terms describing the Natives clearly reflects how powerful and strong of an impact the Puritan exclusiveness of other belief systems has on a person. Prejudice terms as well as other terms were used such as, “savages”, “bloody heathens”, “merciless”, “infidels”, “ravenous beasts”, “black creatures”, “wolves”, etc. . For example, after Rowlandson was taken from her home in Lancaster, she mentions, “I had often before this said that if the Indians should come, I should choose rather to be killed by them than taken alive, but when it came to the trial my mind changed; their glittering weapons so daunted my spirit, that I chose rather to go along with those (as I may say) ravenous beasts,”.
