Helaman - Chapter 2

Here's another example of Satan and his minions failing to support their own.  Kishkumen cooks up his evil plans and secret club and Gadianton takes over and gets all the credit.  Then, on another errand when found out, Satan doesn't bother to warn Kishkumen, he just seals his fate and gathers him up to hell.

I liked the initiative taken by the servant of Helaman.  It's nice when servants see what needs to be done and just step up and do it.  Don't you suspect that servant was prompted by the Spirit to protect the Lord's anointed?  I do.  The Lord does not fail to support His own.  This is not to say that bad things don't happen to good people; they do.  But, you can count on the Lord's purposes to be upheld and we are much more likely to be supported while carrying out what God has called us to do.  Then, when we've done all the Lord has asked of us, whether we live or die is of little lasting consequence.
