Evil Favors Evil
Evil favors its own…at least until their usefulness is all used up. Then evil destroys its own. These are the only options evil understands. Chaos, deceit, destruction, death.
Interestingly, Jesus said this of the father of evil, that Satan comes only to steal, kill and destroy. All the children of Satan take after their father. So, if what is happening creates destruction, chaos and more evil, you know where it came from, and you know whose daddy it is that inspires people to act just like him.
It is stupid to imagine evil even remotely thinks in terms of justice, truth and law. Evil does as it will, because THAT is the law of evil.
It’s like evil to cause the problem and punish the innocent for the problem. Our only defense is Jesus, prayer, praise, scripture.
Jesus is our defender in times of trouble. When we fail to turn to him, evil sees it as a sign of you giving him permission to attack. After all, if the believer were really a believer, he would have instinctively and immediately turned to Jesus. This is what evil looks for. Even the tiniest betrayal of faith in Jesus is seen as a welcome mat for evil and his children.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for apart from Me, you can do nothing.”
