“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 ALSO SIT 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.” Isaiah 14:12-14
You know, it is such a hoot when the UN keeps accusing Israel of being the worst human rights violator in the known universe. I was having my morning coffee, listening to international news on the radio and one story was about a survivor of last years Rohingya atrocities.
Which had included beatings, gang rapes, village burning, and of course mass executions with people thrown in graves with acid to literally “burn the faces off the bodies” all of this PROVEN by a sim card from a survivors cell phone that he had smuggled wrapped in plastic and taped to his leg, when he fled from the horror.
If you need a glimpse of the true extent of these crimes and their true prevalence in the world, just check out some RELIABLE sources on the subject, Reuters has a site dedicated only to human rights violations and awareness.
So pardon me, while viewing the world as largely polluted and corrupted, perverse, and repulsive due to the proverbial stench of human trafficking, slave labor, oppressed women and enslaved children, chained and neglected, and never forget “laboratory” animals,and as I have said a million times, the list goes ON and ON…. so again, pardon me, if I find the accusations against Israel by the UN, in the NEXT news story I heard, just a trifle BIASED, to say the very least.
Actually my first thought was to roll around on the floor and laugh hysterically at the mere fact that two stories back to back, one of brutality beyond brutality and another of a country refusing settlements on their OWN GOD-GIVEN land and yet they were DEEMED the greater of the evil.
Kinda like… “Hello, Pots, are you seriously calling those kettles black?”
Also VERY reminiscent of the conversation between the Lord and Jeremiah.
Jeremiah 1:13 ” And the word of the Lord came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething (boiling) pot; and the face of it is toward the north.”
And we certainly have one set on the stove right now. And man, it is just about to boil completely over.
So back to WHY, and I really want to take this opportunity to ask a question to anyone who made be reading this with skepticism and debate as to the REALITY of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
If you question any of this, I want to challenge you, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH and ASK yourself a couple of questions.
Number one being WHY, WHY would the majority of the world’s countries be so vehemently AGAINST the TINY nation of Israel?
WHY would one people be so hated, so persecuted THROUGHOUT HISTORY?
WHY the accusations that THE well documented facts of the Holocaust NEVER EVEN TOOK PLACE?
WHY have leaders been even KNOWN to echo the VERY words of the Bible, with the statement that they wanted Israel WIPED FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH?
WHY? WHY has there ALWAYS been such turmoil and hatred aimed at one TINY little country?
Well, our answer is found in the above verses. Satan’s LAST attempt at an IMPOSSIBLE overthrow.
Revelation 12:7: ” And there was war IN heaven: Michael and his angels FOUGHT AGAINST the dragon (one of Lucifer’s many names), and the dragon fought and his angels, And PREVAILED NOT; NEITHER WAS THEIR PLACE (dwelling) found any more in heaven.
And the great dragon WAS CAST OUT, that old serpent, CALLED the Devil, and Satan, WHICH DECEIVED THE WHOLE WORLD: HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, and HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM.”
The reference to HIS angels, his demons that are STILL very active, are the third of the angels of heaven who chose to rebel against God, thus becoming demons on earth.
The Bible gives us many pictures of his attempted overthrow, he was very beautiful and was a protecting angel, one of the three arch angels, he was also the angelic worship leader, which his instruments actually CREATED inside his body.
But this great beauty brought him a great fall, he became filled with pride and self-will and no longer wished to serve and honor the very God who CREATED him, but in his arrogant pride felt that he should be worshiped above his own master.
As his MANY names listed above, he is The prince of the kingdoms of Persia, The Pharaoh, The Assyrian, The great cedar,(Daniel 10:3) (Ezekiel 28:12-19) (Ezekiel 31:3-18) and of course, Isaiah chapter 14, The bright star (angelic being) whom Jesus beheld him as lightning from their presence in heaven, as he was cast to earth (Luke 10:18) during that great war.
And as he is referenced so many ways in the Bible, you can see also the mirroring of his image in so many in THIS world, just as Jesus so often told those of his day, that they could not “hear” him because they WERE of THEIR father, the devil.
So as he was thrown from heaven he sought to control this earth and as Jesus referred to him as the “prince of THIS world” when the time came for his arrest, death, and sacrifice to establish absolute power over the devil, death, and hell.
Paul referred to him as the “god of THIS world” (2 Corinthians 4:4) as he spoke to those in the world who are spiritually blind and reject God’s truth because they have believed the lies of the devil.
And I do want to stress that he is NOT a prince nor is he a “god” but those who refuse and reject the truth are actually accepting him as such.
People often want to argue the point of his power BUT the truth is he is still a very powerful being, he WILL NEVER have the power of God!
But a human should never mistake him for an adversary that they can defeat, through their own strength (such as so-called “ghost busters” and paranormal researchers, and any wannabe exorcism specialists, such as those told of in Acts 19:13-16) ONLY THE TRUE God, The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, The I AM THAT I AM, Jehovah God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Ghost, have that power!
And we ONLY have power over the enemy and the works of darkness BECAUSE God dwells in us and HIS power works within us and our lives.
And if you see that differently, you can complain to me in person and I will give you scripture to prove this.
But the BIBLE warns us to “BE ON GUARD”, “BE DILIGENT” “BE SOBER” because OUR adversary walks about SEEKING whom he may devour” that is telling us to watch out for him and his snares.
And to argue otherwise is like saying to someone, “Hey, be careful when you leave your house because a wanted serial killer was spotted.” WITHOUT giving them a DESCRIPTION of that person and TELLING them the area that they should avoid.
It would be useless information to them.
So I said all that to get to this… He TRIED to overthrow the throne IN heaven.
He TRIED to make all the angels worship him.
He then TRIED to establish his kingdom on earth but Jesus overruled that plan with His resurrection.
The last place that he has in his ATTEMPT at his IMPOSSIBLE overthrow IS Jerusalem. Because God has CHOSEN Jerusalem as His special place (read part one to help understand this O Jerusalem….. “ROUND ABOUT” and NEW JERUSALEM will be the crowning jewel of FUTURE earthly reign of Jesus Christ. I hope to get into that, Lord’s will, when part 3 comes around.
But until then LOOK at this for what it is… as God said in the scriptures above, the enemy has “weakened the NATIONS” the latest accusations against Israel (they are but a drop in the bucket) are all leading the nations to that great and faithful day.
And we need to be aware of what is “cooking on the stove” and be especially AWARE of who is truly stirring that pot.
