Satan Calls it Quits by Steve Payne

Author says: what if if Satan called it quits? Please note that the opinions expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the author(s).

In 2914,

During his preceding thousand-year imprisonment, the true repentance of the punished had entered his damned soul. And wisdom also - he had in fact experienced something of a revelation. Because in casting him out of heaven forever, yet asserting that repentance was the true path to redemption, he correctly discerned that Yahweh had inadvertently created a paradox of forgiveness.

"And no matter where I roam
I will find my way back home
I will always return to the Lord" ~Van Morrison
In 1914, Jesus took control of the heavenly kingdom and the Morning Star was loosed from his prison. Therein lie his opportunity to have his status in heaven restored. And like many sinners given just one last, final chance to redeem themselves, he seized it with both hands.

In the starkest possible, apocalyptic terms, humanity was forewarned "woe to the earth because Satan comes down with great wrath, knowing his time is short". However that year did not usher in an age of violence such as no other, instead quite the reverse.

Finding humanity on the very brink of catastrophy, the pity, and yes, repentance, that once made him the mightiest of the Host of Angels, stirred once again in his sinful heart. Because something was missing from this harsh world, and that was love. And so for the first time in millenia, the Morning Star once again called the warring nations to prayer, exhorting them to love thy neighbour, yelling his holy name from the roof-tops of the World, praise God, praise God almighty for this precious gift of life. The Morning Star that used to rise early had arisen, once again.

Author says we usher in the christmas period by sincerely wishing peace, brotherhood and friendship to the readers of Today in Alternate History. Not the potter, but the potter's clay. To view guest historian's comments on this post please visit the Today in Alternate History web site.

Imagine what would be, if history had occurred a bit differently. Who says it didn't, somewhere? These fictional news items explore that possibility. Possibilities such as America becoming a Marxist superpower, aliens influencing human history in the 18th century and Teddy Roosevelt winning his 3rd term as president abound in this interesting fictional blog.
