To be identified with a loser is to become a loser.

JER 4:22 “For My people are foolish, They know Me not; They are stupid children, And they have no understanding. They are shrewd to do evil, But to do good they do not know.”

1. Disembodied spirits.
2. Demons with bodies,
Rev 9.

LUK 3:14 – they are not content with their wages.
2CO 12:10 – they are not content when they are going through undeserved suffering.
PHI 4:11-12 – they are not content with adversity or prosperity.
1TI 6:6 – they are not content with living the spiritual life.
1TI 6:8 – they are not content with food and clothing.
HEB 13:5 – they are not content with what they have.

True contentment is the power of getting out of any situation all there is in it.

The secret of contentment is knowing how to enjoy what you have, and to be able to lose all desire for things beyond your reach.

Contentment makes a poor man rich; discontentment makes a rich man poor.

JER 49:16 “The arrogance of your heart has deceived you,”

Satan only has a short time before the Second Advent, three and a half years.

Satan will be imprisoned in the Abyss for one thousand years,
REV 20:1-3.

Then he will be given his freedom for a short time, and he will start a conspiracy on earth, the Gog revolution, and again he will be cast into a lake of fire, REV 20:7-9.

The fallen angels will be thrown directly into the lake of fire at the Second Advent, MAT 25:41. The baptism of fire – “Depart from me ye cursed ones into eternal fire, which is prepared for the Devil and his angels.”

No creature can challenge the creator and ever win.

No creature, who sides with another creature, who challenges the creator, can ever win.

To be identified with a loser is to become a loser.

Fallen angels have joined Satan in his challenge of the Creator, therefore, they must share the fate of Satan,MAT 25:41.

Those members of the human race who reject the saving work of Christ on the cross, have joined Satan and the fallen angels in challenging the Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ.

1. Happiness is not having what you want, it is wanting what you have or being at a place of contentment.

3. All of us attain the greatest success and happiness possible in this life whenever we use our capacities to their greatest extent.
4. There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.

5. You will never realize how happy you are until you go through certain problems and find out that your happiness has not been taken away.
6. Happiness is not a reward for doing something, it is a consequence.Aor-act-ind – akouo = to hear, to listen; it means that the one who is listening or hearing is teachable.

7. We tend to forget that true happiness does not come as a result of getting something we do not have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
8. It is not the place, nor the condition, but the mind alone that can make anyone happy or miserable.
