BLESSED BY GOD IN SATAN'S WORLD: How All Things Are Working for Your Good

 All of us will go through difficult times that we may not fully understand. The apostle Paul wrote, "in the last days difficult times will come." (2 Tim. 3:1) Those difficulties are part of the human imperfection (Rom. 5:12) and living in a fallen world that is ruled by Satan (2 Cor. 4:3-4). But when we find ourselves in such a place, it's crucial that we realize God has given us a way out. (1 Cor. 10:13) Edward Andrews writes that if we remain steadfast in our faith and apply God's Word correctly when we go through difficult times, we will not only grow spiritually, but we will see how all things work together for our good. Through practical applications and scriptural insight, BLESSED IN SATAN'S WORLD focuses on how to draw closer to God (Jam. 4:4) and trusting in God when life may not seem to make sense.

The flower on the book cover represents the idea that one can be blessed by God EVEN IN a fallen world that has Satan as it's ruler and even while they are in the fallen flesh. The dark image of the cover represents just how surrounded we are (i.e., the flower) by Satanic influence and the independent spirit of the unbelievers.

 Some Bible writers (e.g., Apostle Paul) revealed to their readers that there is an ongoing conflict between the Christian, with one side being the fallen, sinful flesh. In this revelation, the Bible writers use such expressions as "the inner man," "our inner man," and comparable expressions. At Romans 2:14-15, Paul speaks of us saying, "The law is written on their hearts." Because man and woman were made in the image and likeness of God, they were given a moral nature that was in harmony with God. This moral nature produces a mental power or ability such as reason and conscience. Even though, we are imperfect, we retain a measure of this moral nature that is in harmony with God's moral standards. This moral nature operates in "the inner man," as a law, a moral law.

However, because of our fallen condition, there is also 'the law of sin, which is in our members.' This 'law in our members of our body, wages a war against the law of our mind and can make us a prisoner of the law of sin.'―Romans 6:12; 7:22, 23

Nevertheless, not all is lost, because Paul also tells us that we can 'be renewed in the spirit of our minds.' (Eph. 4:23) We can 'put off the old person with its practices and have put on the new person. We will then be renewed in knowledge according to the image of our Creator.' We will be transformed by the renewing of our mind, so that we may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.'―Colossians 3:9-10; Romans 12:2

We are 'baptized into Christ Jesus we are baptized into his death. Our old self is crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. Nevertheless, while we are in an imperfect condition, the law of God is in our inner being, but in our members, is another law waging war against the law of my mind and making us captive to the law of sin that dwells in our members. While we serve the law of God with our mind, with our flesh we serve the law of sin.' (Rom. 6:3-7; 7:21-25) The premise of this book is quite simple, how do we take off the old person and put on new person? In addition, what must we do, to keep on sustaining that new person?
