Devil’s “Kingdom”

The “kingdom of the devil” is actually a misnomer. It is never well organized because of the jealousy, ambition, self-interest and greed of those attracted to his agenda. It destroys, but cannot create. It collapses from its own contradictions. This is why when the devil claims to “rule from the rivers to the ends of the earth” what you behold on the pages of history are plagues, despair, war, chaos and conflict.

We are getting an interesting display of what the “devil’s kingdom” looks like in modern politics. A cacophany of discordant foolishness that results in destroying, not creating, dependency, not sufficiency, and anger, not peace.

These forces excite interest and attract attention.

Zion, on the other hand, is rather bland and disinteresting. No fighting. No conflict. No intrigue. No hostility. Just quiet cooperation and labor to provide sufficient and to spare.

Therefore Zion will hold little interest for most of the world. Too bland. Too simple. Too uninteresting for today’s headlines.

Ahh, if only we could control our compulsion for conflicts.
