Many have not a clue as to why the world is so wicked today, as if it is some normal thing. This is not how life was designed to be.
All around us, we see wars and rumours of wars, people protesting, economic chaos, the breakdown of the family structure, the promotion of self, a growing dependency on drugs and alcohol along with the rise of all kinds of sin. People are embracing evil over what is good. As the Bible says, the love of many shall grow cold. Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
So, why are we seeing these things increase at an alarming rate?
In order to find out, we must search the Scriptures for in them we will find the truth as mentioned in John 5:39. “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” John 17:17, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
The Word of God is the light unto our path in this dark, cold, sick, decadent and dying world that is full of sin. Psalms 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
If we want to know the truth, and live by the truth, we must stop turning to the world like the news industry, the so called preachers of the world today, the politicians and such. The only real truth we are going to find is from the Bible. So let us open up our Bibles and find some truth which will lead us to the knowledge of what is going on today.
There are many places in the Bible where we can start from that will bring us to the knowledge of the truth, but for those who are new to really reading their Bibles, we will start with some basics. Let us first find out why the world is in such chaos?
There is a worldwide agenda to bring us back to the days where the world was speaking one language or was of one accord. In Genesis 11:1-9, we read, “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top [may reach] unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people [is] one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”
And so, just like in time pass, Satan, the enemy of God and of man, was trying to build this world up to his liking and to serve his Satanic purposes and to, of course, above all things, so to be WORSHIPPED…..
Isaiah 14:12-15, “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”
We can even see in the NT where Satan even offered the world to the Son of God, Jesus Christ, if He would but bow down and worship him. Matthew 4:8-9, “Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and showeth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.”
This self exaltation and seeking for attention are evident today in the Satanic Hollywood industry, social gossipers, singers, other entertainers, and especially these so called preachers today and their prosperity message. They are glamorizing themselves and their followers are doing likewise. This all points to what Paul wrote about in 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
This is the same character that Satan holds to. This is the same character that he had in heaven and that he is causing the world to have today. This is why Satan has caused so much distress in the world. He is trying so hard to destroy anything that is good so to be worshipped. Again, he is so obsessed in wanting to be worshipped and by people partaking in this satanic character today, it is evident that they worship him rather than the loving Creator….If Satan can cause everyone to be puffed up, to look at themselves to be beautiful and lifted up in pride, thinking how great oneself is, then he has accomplished his work in every soul that clings to this form of Character because Satan knows that they will not make it to heaven then just as he was casted out for having it, just as the story goes in…
Ezekiel 28:11-19, “Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone [was] thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou [art] the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee [so]: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou [wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never [shalt] thou [be] any more.”
And so, to those who claim Satan is some ugly monster, it is not so. Satan was and is a beautiful Cherub angel who lost his right in the city of God for breaking His commandments and for trying to exalt himself above God. Arrogance and the desire to be worshipped took over him.
As Lucifer, Satan was next to Jesus in heaven, but he was not satisfied with it, he was not content and so he fell into iniquity (sin) and rebelled against God and then war broke out in heaven as it proclaims in Revelation 12:7-9, “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
The Bible even tells us how many of these angels sympathized with Satan and were cast out with him in Revelation 12:4, “And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.”
For many babes in Christ who perhaps do not understand this verse let us take a look at it little closer so to better understand the revelation in this verse. One golden rule that we need to always apply in the Word of GOD is that we are to know this first…..”Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.” 2 Peter 1:20.
We are not to give our own opinion as to what it means, but we are to allow the Word of God define it.
So what are stars? Stars in Bible prophecy are angels:
Revelation 1:16, 20, “The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.”
So it clearly says that the stars are represented as angels and Satan the dragon drew a third of them out of heaven. This same master plan of Satan that caused all these angels to fall is the same deception he is casting on the people of this world.
So what happened in heaven is continuing here on the earth according to Revelation 12:9. There is a Great Controversy between God and the devil; between good and evil, between obedience to God and disobedience to Him.
Sin or not to sin is the question? What is sin? Sin is the transgression of the law. 1 John 3:4. And those who want to continue to make excuses as to why they want to remain in the ranks of Satan and not repent will also be left outside the city of God when this war is over with and sin put to death once and for all. Romans 6:16, “Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”
2 Peter 2:4-9, “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast [them] down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth [person], a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned [them] with an overthrow, making [them] an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed [his] righteous soul from day to day with [their] unlawful deeds;) The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.”
And when is the Day of Judgment going to take place? After probation closes and the Judge of the universe pronounces, “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” Revelation 22:11.
Upon reading Revelation 16:12-16, the battle of Armageddon is not fought with tanks, airplanes, ships and such, but it is a war that has been waged on the law of God, a war between truth and error, a war between good and evil. Yes, Satan who is here on earth and cannot be seen at the moment is using the earthly nations and their weapons to serve his purpose in bringing together his NEW WORLD ORDER where he is trying to establish the one world government and the one world false religion that will bring the world to their knees to worship Satan on his counterfeit day of worship Sunday exaltation. What we are seeing before our eyes unfolding with martial law that will soon happen in America, and around the world, as we do see stages of the military practicing this maneuvers all over the news, is all preparation for Satan to gather the world under his rebellion against God and His children who will not bow to Satan and join his ranks against the government of God. All this that is happening in the world is for the sole purpose that Satan may be worshipped and to destroy the kingdom of God through the errors of this world and all her sinning against the God of heaven and earth. There is only but one who desirves to be worshipped and that is the God of Heaven and Earth, Elohim.
Exodus 20:8-11, “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of the LORD thy God: [in it] thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that [is] within thy gates: For [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them [is], and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”
And what God has blessed no one has the authority to change that. Not even God Himself will change it because He says in Malachi 3:6, “For I [am] the LORD, I change not…” It is sealed forever and we cannot reverse it. “Behold, I have received [commandment] to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.” Numbers 23:20.
Therefore, “Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.””And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.” Matthew 4:10; Mark 2:27-28. So until next time my brethren…..
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” Ephesians 6:10-18.
Revelation 14:12, “Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
