LISTEN IN TO A GRANDPA - GRANDSON CONVERSATION
By Frank E. Henrich June 6, 2010
is the root of evil?
I am so confused and you're so wise,
Sometimes people are so mean,
Oh! Gramps, I am so confused.
Well, Chris, I have had 79 years
Of living and this I have learned,
That we have to live with evil,
But Jesus will be our protector.
Gramps, is Satan alive
Are there demons & Satan worship?
Are ouija boards and tarot cards
All works of the evil one?
Chris, the first thing to recognize
Is God is spirit and the spirit
Dominates the physical world
Of life here on vibrant Earth.
like Adam, wanted to be a god,
Eating from the tree of good and evil,
Well, before Adam, some angels
Defied God and were also cast out.
These cast out angels are spirits
they want your denial of God,
They work to steal your eternal life
From our loving Creator God.
You say, how do they do this?
Chris, they scheme against you
Knowing your natural
They encourage you to sin.
So we must be on guard,
When we sin, confess it at once,
For God is mercyful and forgiving,
Restoring and strengthening us.
Chris, the first
thing to know
Is that we will never fully understand
Much about the spirit
While we are here on Earth.
It is a mystery beyond the limits
greatest thinking minds,
Though they try and fail to state
An understanding of creation.
But God is merciful to us,
He gave us the Bible to read,
Though it is not the words of the
That bless us, it’s the Holy Spirit.
Yes, the Holy Spirit enlightens
Those who read these timeless words,
And from it come words of wisdom
To handle the world and Satan.
But Chris, if that was not enough,
Jesus, promised us that He
Would send the Holy Spirit
To live in each of us, yes, you.
Gramps, are you telling me
That there is
a spirit world
Of good and bad spiritual arenas,
And I must find the good one?
are you telling me that
Satan will try to destroy my life,
And that I must lean on the Bible
And the Holy Spirit living in me?
Chris, that's what I have learned,
took me many years
To be able to discern
Good and evil as it comes.
But Chris, I am not proud,
I know it all,
For then I would be prideful
One of my weaknesses.
Just stay humble before God,
Thank Jesus for his redeeming grace,
Stay meek and ready to serve God,
for He will lead the way.
Chris, my grandmother Ella, your great-great grandmother would never say anything bad
about a person and was known for her restraint. So one day a friend asked her what good she could say about the
devil. She thought a while and then said, “He is a busy person.”

When the reality of the spirit world of good
and evil is known to us and we seek to follow you God. Come sweet redeemer Jesus to help us when our faith falters like it
did to Peter when he walked on the water. Jesus reached down to save Peter. Save us oh Lord for we seek to serve you
as did Peter.
Quote from Evelyn Underhill
“Here we are, little half-animal, half-spiritual creatures, mysteriously urged from within,
and enticed from without to communion with spiritual Reality (God). If and when we surrender to this craving and this attraction,
we enter thereby - though at first dimly - on a completely new life full of variety, of new joy, tension and pain, offering
an infinite opportunity of development to us. Such is the life of prayer as understood by the mystics, and as practiced with
greater or less completeness of surrender and reward by all real lovers of Christ.”
SCRIPTURES ON HOPE IN JESUS
5:11-21 11 And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 So whoever has
God's Son has life; whoever does not have his Son does not have life.
13 I write this to you who believe in the
Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life. 14 And we can be confident that he will listen to us whenever we ask
him for anything in line with his will. 15 And if we know he is listening when we make our requests, we can be sure that he
will give us what we ask for. 16 If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you
should pray, and God will give that person life. But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray
for those who commit it. 17 Every wrong is sin, but not all sin leads to death.
18 We know that those who have
become part of God's family do not make a practice of sinning, for God's Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot
get his hands on them. 19 We know that we are children of God and that the world around us is under the power and control
of the evil one. 20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true
God. And now we are in God because we are in his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life. 21 Dear
children, keep away from anything that might take God's place in your hearts. NLT
