"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:" 1 Peter 3:15 (KJV)
The Box of the Devil’s Fault
I see a spiritual laziness that I have never seen before; a lack of Godly leadership, I sense a lack of passion, no interest, I see a sense of conformity, a satisfaction, a compliance with the establishment that is sickening indeed. We have found our way out that releases us from any accountability or responsibility.
We blame the devil for everything. It is all the devil’s fault. Any problem, any challenge or any uncomfortable emotion is the devil’s fault. We don’t take responsibility for anything; we don’t speak about the need for repentance, we don’t seek God’s wisdom to resolve anything, we just place everything in the box of the devil’s fault.
People get mad, frustrated, angry and comfortable with an attitude of un-forgiveness. God’s people are choking with roots of bitterness. Bitterness is paralyzing growth and burning the possibility of any development of fruit.
We casually say things such as, “God will take care of me.” But we teach half-truths as we omit good stewardship; it is all about rejecting personal responsibility and blaming the devil for everything. We teach a grace that rejects truths. We teach forgiveness of sins without the need for repentance.
I burn the box of the devil’s fault in Jesus name and I say let conviction arise and let us prepare the way of the Lord. Let us be ready for the judgment of God that will start with us and in us. Let us prepare our hearts; let us get ready for the release of His Shekinah Glory that will manifest as the end-time harvest. Oh, may us become a bride without wrinkles and may us be ready for the coming of the Lord.
An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director.
While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog.
In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing. Angel is the author of two books, Hope for the divorcee: Forgiving and Moving Forward and 7 Banderas de Esperanza: La Bendición de Yokdzonot. In January 8th of 2020 Angel and his wife moved to Arizona.
