2-21-2013- DIALOGUE BETWEEN SATAN AND DEATH


I HEARD DEATH AND SATAN, AS THEY DISPUTED, WHICH WAS THE MORE POWERFUL AMONG MEN....DEATH SHOWED HIS POWER, THAT HE CONQUERS ALL; SATAN SHOWED HIS GUILE, THAT HE MAKES ALL TO SIN.

  • DEATH: TO YOU O EVIL ONE, NO ONE LISTENS EXCEPT HE THAT WILLS; TO ME HE THAT WILLS AND HE THAT WILLS NOT, EVEN TO ME THEY COME.
  • SATAN: YOUR'S O DEATH, IS BUT THE FORCE OF TYRANNY; MINE ARE TRAPS AND NETS OF SUBTLETY.
  • DEATH: HEAR O EVIL ONE, THAT WHO SO IS SUBTLE BREAKS OFF YOUR YOKE: BUT NONE THERE IS THAT IS ABLE TO ESCAPE MY YOKE.
  • SATAN: YOU DEATH, ON HIM THAT IS SICK TESTS YOUR MIGHT: BUT I OVER THEM THAT ARE WELL, AM EXCEEDINGLY POWERFUL.
  • DEATH: THE EVIL ONE PREVAILS NOT OVER ALL THOSE THAT REVILE HIM: BUT FOR ME, HE THAT HAS CURSED ME AND HE THAT CURSES ME, COMES INTO MY HANDS.
  • SATAN: YOU DEATH, FROM GOD HAS GOTTEN YOUR MIGHT: I ALONE BY NO ONE AM I HELPED, WHEN I LEAD MEN TO SIN
  • DEATH: ON DEATH THERE ARE MANY THAT CALL, AS ON A KIND POWER: ON YOU O EVIL ONE, NONE HAS CALLED, OR CALLS.
  • SATAN: FOR YOU O DEATH, THEY HATE YOUR NAME AND ALSO YOUR WORK: MY NAME THEY HATE, BUT MY DELIGHTS, THEY GREATLY LOVE.
  • DEATH: TO BITTERNESS OF TEETH IS TURNED, THIS YOUR SWEETNESS: PENITENCE OF SOUL , CLEAVES EVER TO YOUR LUSTS.
  • SATAN: HELL IS HATED BECAUSE IN HER IS NO REPENTANCE: A PIT THAT SWALLOWS AND CLOSES ON ALL MOVEMENTS.
  • DEATH: HELL IS A GULF WHEREIN WHOSOEVER FALLS, SHALL RISE AGAIN: SIN IS HATED BECAUSE IT CUTS OFF THE HOPE OF MAN.
  • SATAN: THOUGH I DISLIKE PENITENTS, I GIVE PLACE FOR REPENTANCE: YOU CUT OFF HOPE FROM THE SINNER, WHO DIES IN HIS SIN.
DEATH: IT WAS OF YOU THAT AT FIRST HIS HOPE WAS CUT OFF: FOR HE WHO YOU HAVE NOT CAUSED TO SIN, DIES HAPPILY.


BLESSES IS GOD WHO RAISED AGAINST EACH OTHER, THOSE CURSED SERVANTS: THAT WE MIGHT SEE THEM AS THEY HAVE SEEN US AND MOCKED AT US. THIS THAT WE HAVE SEEN OF THEM IS A PLEDGE, MY BRETHREN: OF WHAT WE SHALL SEE OF THEM HEREAFTER, WHEN WE RISE AGAIN.
