The Holy War by John Bunyan


The Holy War by John Bunyan

The Holy War made by King Shaddai (El Shaddai is one of the Judaic names of God) upon Diabolus, to regain the metropolis of the World, or, the losing and taking again the town of Mansoul. Bunyan's Allegory tells the story of the town Mansoul Man's Soul . Although this town is perfect and bears the image of Shaddai (Almighty), it is deceived to rebel and throw off his gracious rule replacing it instead of the Rule of Diabolus. Although Mansoul has rejected the Kingship of Shaddai, he sends his Son Emmanuel to reclaim it.Allegory: In the City there were three esteemed men, who by admitting Diabolus to the City, lost their previous authority. The Eyes of Understanding , the Mayor are hidden from the light. Conscience , the Recorder, has become a Madman, at times sinning, but at other times condemning the Sin of the City. But worst of all is Lord Willbewill , whose desire has been completely changed from serving His True Lord to serving Diabolus. With the fall of these three, for Mansoul to turn back to Shaddai of their own will, is impossible. Salvation can only come by the victory of Emmanuel.The entire story is a masterpiece of Christian Literature, describing vividly the process of the Fall, Conversion, Fellowship with Emmanuel and many more intricate Doctrines.
