Does wearing religious jewelry protect me?

The cross is loved and respected by millions of people around the world so much so that even The Encyclopædia Britannica calls the cross “the principal symbol of the Christian religion.”However interestingly enough, the Greek word generally translated “cross” is stau·rosʹ. It basically means “an upright pale or stake.” And then the Companion Bible points out: “[Stau·rosʹ] never means two pieces of timber placed across one another at any angle . . . There is nothing in the Greek of the [New Testament] even to imply two pieces of timber.”
In several texts, Bible writers use another word for the instrument of Jesus’ death. It is the Greek word xyʹlon. (Acts 5:30; 10:39; 13:29; Galatians 3:13; 1 Peter 2:24) This word simply means “timber” or “a stick, club, or tree.”
The apostle Paul says: “Christ purchased us, releasing us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse instead of us, because it is written: ‘Accursed is every man hung upon a stake [“a tree,” King James Version].’” (Galatians 3:13) Here Paul quotes Deuteronomy 21:22, 23, which clearly refers to a stake, (cross). Since such a means of execution made the person “a curse,” the question that arises “is it proper for Christians to decorate their homes with images of Christ on a cross or the cross as jewellery around the neck or simply the cross as a means of protection. That being said, there is debate as to whether or not it is appropriate—or even sinful—to wear religious jewelry like crosses and crucifixes. Christians did not begin wearing crosses around their necks until after crucifixion was no longer the primary source of capital punishment; therefore, it is not equivalent to a modern-day person wearing a miniature death chamber or a gun or knife around his neck, as some have suggested. Many looks at the cross as simply the instrument of death used to slay our beloved Saviour. It being suggested on social media that people who truly practice the Christianity of the Bible stand out as beacons of light in

Does satan have control over the weather?

The writers of the Bible claimed that God Yahweh personally controlled all aspects of the weather: rain, wind, clouds, hail, snow, ice, cold, storms, sunshine, drought, thunder, lightning (even precisely where it strikes, Job 36.32), earthquakes, and everything down to the growth of grass. They considered thunder to be the "voice" of Yahweh, coming from his "mouth" (Ps 18.Ps 29.). Lightning belonged to Yahweh; it was "his" (Job 37.Ps 97). Yahweh had storehouses up in the sky/heavens, where he kept water, winds, snow, and hail until he wanted to send them (Ps 135.; Deut 28.; Jer 10.). God personally created rainbows to remind himself not to drown all humans and other animals anymore (Gen 9.14-16). Biblical authors also believed that bad weather occurred because of sin, but that if a good man would pray, God would listen from the sky/heaven and send good weather (Deut 11.; 1 Kings 18.;
2 Chron 6.26-27).

Because some individuals do notice that natural disasters cause terrible suffering for millions and millions of people, regardless of religion or lack of religion, some modern believers will occasionally attribute natural disasters to the Satan character, in an attempt to shift blame from their god concept. However, the writers of the Bible did not believe such. Even in the book of Job, although the accuser ("the satan," one of "the sons of Elohim/God" who has free access to the heavenly court, ) asks to bring harm upon Job as a test, it is ultimately Elohim who controls the weather, for good or ill. The Bible says that God will rain upon the just and the unjust. People could be praying for the storm to pass by in one area, yet others could be praying also in areas that are hard hit. God can let bad weather hit one area yet keep it from hitting another area. For example, the storms we had in KZN The increasing number of natural disasters and terrible storms have many people wondering, who controls the weather, God or Satan?
