Repent O sinners

I was chatting with a friend and he brought up an interesting issue...

Devil knows who is Jesus.... They knew that He is the son of God..
(Refer to Matt 8:28-34, Mark 3:11, Mark 5:7, Luke 4:33-34 for the above statement)
In all those accounts in the bible, the devil was begging Jesus to spare their life.... What does this show us?? It only shows us that the devil is afraid of the Lord Jesus Christ, who has higher authority than them. Who can destroy them if He wants to... The fear of Christ is in the heart of the devil, hence, in some sense, fearing of doing things that is not right as afraid of being destroy by Him.

Looking from another point of view, doesn't a person knows what is written in the bible? Well, at least a general view of it... Yet chose not to believe in it... Doesn't that shows the similarity of the devil? The devil knows that Jesus is the son of God yet from time to time, he is there challenging God from doing evil. However, at the end of the story, devil should know better that God will always wins the battle as no one will gain victory from "fighting" with God. Even so, the difference between human and devil is... Human do not fear the Lord... Doesn't that make us worse than a devil? We still continue on doing what is wrong despite of the rules and regulation set by God..

What words can be used then to describe? Understatement...

Having head knowledge about God is never enough... Devil has that too, but God still said that the devil is evil instead of good... Always remember that faith without action is death... May I fear the Lord almighty and do what is right in His sight... Repent O sinner....
