  1. I just want to say that I Love what you all are doing. Thank you ever so much. I do want to address the picture in your Sunday School Lesson titled “The Temptation of CHRIST” though. I don’t believe that satan looks that way. I have known children who have been visited by demons and they do not look that way. They still come to us… that is, when they do come, as beautiful, bright beings and maybe one reason is because if they did come looking like that there would be no problem differentiating between the good angels and the demon angels? And you probably want to know how the children know these are demons? One little girl said she was in bed, late at night… when suddenly this most beautiful dazzling being that looked like an angel stood beside her bed. The angelic being told her that he was from GOD… that GOD had sent him. But… the little girl knew this was NOT an angel sent from GOD. How did she know? When the being first appeared, she was startled….scared/afraid. And she replied to this angel… “When someone in the BIBLE was afraid and were visited by GOD’s angel, they always told them, ‘Do not be afraid…. and you did not tell me that!’… and as soon as she said that, that being turned into some grotesque, ugly being… became dark… hissed… and disappeared. Even the BIBLE says… satan will come as an angel of light.
