God, why did you create satan? There is so much darkness in the world.
I did not create the enemy, child. He manifested himself into darkness. I only create pure and loving beings—children whom I love deeply and whom I want to love me in return.
Love must be given freely and not forced, and so, for my children to do this, I gave everyone free will. Angels and people alike. In this way only, can you choose to love me freely.
Greed and a desire to be better than everyone else, deserving above all others, turned him away from me. It saddens me still. In his greed for power, he chose darkness over light, anger and envy over love.
Only fools choose the darkness willingly, but the lost stumble blindly into the dark, and even the innocent make mistakes. These did not choose darkness freely but were tricked and coerced by the enemy. I fight for them every day, shining light so they may find the path again, sending angels to protect and aid them.
No, I did not create him. He fell into the pit of darkness of his own choosing. What I did was make a path, for all who choose it, to come to the light. In my love for you, I created a way back and through my Son’s death, the doorway to Heaven is revealed.
The enemy feeds on confusion and chaos and strives to fill the world with anger and hate. Their numbers have been growing, but he knows as do I that he can never win, for I have created a path for the lost to return to me.
Light will always win over darkness, and the enemy will fall in the last battle. That time is coming, but not yet. There is still time for the lost to return and the blind to see.
Stay in the light, my child, and we will be reunited once again. I love you and would never do anything to hurt you. I want my children to fulfill their purpose and be happy, to love and shine in all their glory.
Times are difficult, but you must be steadfast in your faith. Remember you house your spirit within you, not within a building. Nobody can steal your light from you unless you let them.
I love all my creations too much to hurt anyone; no, my child, I did not create the enemy; I create loving beings.
