John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world; now will the ruler of this world be cast out.

1 John 5:19 We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.

2 Corinthians 2:4 In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Ephesians 6:11-12 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

This is what we are up against…

The documentary Satan: Angels, Fallen Angels & Demons starts at Mount Hermon in Israel where according to the Book of Enoch two hundred (200) Fallen Angels made entrance to earth. These Fallen Angels (under Satan, Azazel, and others) played little gods and kings with mankind. It was this entrance of the Fallen Angels covered in both Genesis 6 and Enoch 6 that gave birth (it is believed) to the many “Fallen Angel” accounts of the Greeks, the Romans, etc…. in their mythologies. Satan: Angels, Fallen Angels and Demons focuses on the first ritual and Satanic / Luciferian human sacrifice site ~ at the base of Mount Hermon. At Mount Hermon there is a cave called “Pan’s Cave”. It is here were Luciferian ceremonies took place, at the very spot where the fallen angels are believed to have made entrance.

 

Acts 26:18 …to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me…

What the Hell…Lake of Fire

Posted in Hell, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 5, 2015 by paulthepoke

The term “Lake of Fire” does not occur in the Bible until Revelation 19. The phrase is noted four times. One other time, the lake is referred as a place which burns with fire. Revelation 21:8b “…their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Matthew 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;” –Jesus

Man was never intended for eternal fire. The Lake of Fire was created for Satan and fallen angels.

lake-of-fire1

Revelation 20:10b and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. The Lake of Fire is the destination of eternal torment and judgment.

The Lake of Fire stinks. The place has to smell like rotten eggs or bad flatulence. It is burning Sulphur.

Revelation 19:20 And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.

The Lake of Fire is a physical place on Earth as described by the Bible. The antichrist, a real person on Earth, will be thrown alive into the Lake of Fire. The false prophet, a real person, will be thrown alive into the Lake of Fire. The antichrist and false prophet will be escorted to the lake by Jesus Himself.

These two people (antichrist and false prophet) get to spend 1,000 years in the fiery lake all to themselves. They will have company later. Satan has a 1,000 year time out in the abyss guarded by an angel (Revelation 20:1-3). Believers in Christ who perish during the tribulation will be resurrected to rule and reign with Christ on Earth during the Millennial Kingdom. Those who were in opposition to Christ during the tribulation, well…Revelation 20:5 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection.

Satan will be released one last time after his 1,000 year jail sentence. He will not be rehabilitated or changed for the betterment of society. He will not learn any hard lessons. Satan started as a deceiver in the Garden of Eden and he ends as a deceiver of humanity. Both times humanity has the best of earthly environmental conditions. Yet, humanity is deceived. Despite 1,000 years of Christ’s leadership, a great physical environment, untold riches and resources, the serpent leads a revolt of humanity against Jesus Christ. In the end, the created beings declare war on God the Son. The result…Revelation 20:10 And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

Everyone who has ever lived will come before the Judge. It does not matter how rich or poor or lot in life. It does not matter how or where one died. All will be judged according to their deeds. Revelation 20:14-15 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Per God, below is the resume and criteria for admission to the Lake of Fire …

Revelation 21:8 “But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

To those who want nothing to do with God, you get your wish.

Antichrist, The Beast, Part 2

Posted in Antichrist/Beast, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2015 by paulthepoke

Revelation 13:1 And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names.

Who is the dragon? That is answered in Revelation 12:9. And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Chapter 12 of Revelation discusses how the Satan and his angels have been ejected from Heaven to Earth. He is described as having great wrath or thumos in the Greek. Per Strong’s Concordance, thumos means: passion, angry, heat, anger forthwith boiling up and soon subsiding again; glow, ardour, the wine of passion, inflaming wine (which either drives the drinker mad or kills him with its strength). This anger is modified as great or megas (used of intensity and its degrees: with great effort, of the affections and emotions of the mind, of natural events powerfully affecting the senses: violent, mighty, strong) in the Greek. To say Satan is not happy is an understatement. The focus of his angst will be Israel.

Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea… From where does the beast or antichrist emerge? Is he Jewish or gentile? This is a topic of great debate. There are reasonable presentations suggesting he is Jewish. Our eternal salvation is not dependent on this issue. Bible believing people can respectfully disagree.

This blog’s position: The antichrist is a gentile.

The antichrist is the last leader of the times of the Gentiles. In today’s world (January 2015), would the United Nations allow a Jewish man to be Secretary General? Would the Muslim world be agreeable to this idea? Stranger things have happened. Jerusalem, Israel is going to be pummeled prior to the return of Christ. Of those Jews who are not killed, the antichrist will try to disperse the Jews again from Israel. He wants to purge Israel of  their people. Luke 21:24 …and they will fall by the edge of the sword, and will be led captive into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

Historically, Gentiles have lead invasions of Israel. Gentiles persecute the Jews. Look at the leaders who have done this in the past: Nebuchadnezzar (Babylon), Tiglath-Pileser (Assyria), Antiochus Epiphanes (Greek King, Seleucid Empire), also Nero and the Romans. Would a Jewish leader of a foreign army launch an invasion of Israel?

In the Bible, the sea is equated with gentile nations. There are examples in the Old Testament and New Testament.

Isaiah 17:12 Alas, the uproar of many peoples who roar like the roaring of the seas, and the rumbling of nations who rush on like the rumbling of mighty waters!

Ezekiel 26:3 therefore thus says the Lord GOD, ‘Behold, I am against you, O Tyre (Lebanon), and I will bring up many nations against you, as the sea brings up its waves…

Luke 21:25 There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves.

A primary key to understanding and interpreting Revelation 13:1 is given later in Revelation 17. In regards to the beast coming out of the seaRevelation 17:15 And he said to me, “The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.

Eventually, a Jewish man will descend from Heaven. And He will rule. Acts 1:11 They (angels) also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”

Isaiah 6:6-7 Mercy, Grace, Forgiveness, the Old Testament

Posted in Isaiah with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 25, 2012 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 6:6-7 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven.” 

The events above are taking place in the presence of God in the throne room of Heaven. The concept of burning coal from the altar in front of God in Heaven is consistent with the Aaronic ordinances given in Leviticus 16:12 “He shall take a firepan full of coals of fire from upon the altar before the LORD and two handfuls of finely ground sweet incense, and bring it inside the veil. What is done on earth is a picture of Heaven. This brings meaning to the phrase, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”.

your iniquity is taken away… The Hebrew word for iniquity is ‘avon. As defined by Strong’s Concordance it means: perversity, depravity, iniquity, guilt or punishment/consequence of iniquity.

Burning coal is a symbol of cleansing. Fire purifies. Sin is taken away and removed in the presence of God. This is the Old Testament. Critics have often stated that removal and forgiveness of sin are New Testament ideas. Critics will say the God of the Old Testament is a mean ogre who is cruel and punishing, ready to crush with His thumb. There are many examples of mercy, grace, and forgiveness of sin in the Old Testament. These are Biblical concepts from beginning to end.

Psalm 32:1-2 How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered! How blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit! These verses were written by David. He is clearly a man who had committed a transgression or two (murder, lust, adultery) in the events surrounding Bathsheba. He understood that God was merciful and gracious when it came to sin. In Psalm 32:5, David confessed his sins, and then You forgave my sins.

Psalm 51 is written with David’s adultery being at the forefront and focus of the Psalm. David knows he is guilty and he has sinned against God. David is in despair and desperate. Verse 1 Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; according to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.  He also knows God can take care of his short comings. Verse 7,9 Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities. There is plea bargaining and begging. David is playing “Let’s Make a Deal”. Verse 14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation…

Critics will argue Isaiah was written after Jesus’ death and resurrection to fit and fulfill prophecy and doctrine. Unfortunately for the critic, Isaiah was copied in the Greek translation of the Old Testament, the Septuagint, approximately 330 years before the birth of Christ (Israel My Glory, November/December 2012, p. 8). Isaiah 53 foreshadows Jesus’ work on the cross. Verse 5-6, 11b, 12b But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their iniquities. Because He poured out Himself to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet He Himself bore the sin of many, and interceded for the transgressors.

God has always been and will always be merciful, gracious, and forgiving.

Isaiah 6:3-4 Angels and Worship

Posted in Isaiah with tags , , , , , , on November 11, 2012 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 6:3-4 And one called out to another and said, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.” And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke. 

Note the consistency from the Old Testament to the New Testament. Angels are making the same proclamation of “Holy, Holy, Holy” in the throne room of Heaven in Revelation 4:8b …and day and night they do not cease to say, “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is THE LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME.” 

We know from the text that angels are able to speak and communicate. They can be understood by humans. They can at the least speak Hebrew.

Angels worship God. Nehemiah 9:6b …You give life to all of them and the heavenly host bows down before You. “Host” or tsaba’ in the Hebrew can refer to an army or angels. The host is worshiping God. The Hebrew word for bow down is shachah. According to Strong’s Concordance, it means: to bow down, prostrate oneself before superior in homage, before God in worship.

Angels worship Christ. Hebrews 1:6 And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, “AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM.”The Him is Jesus and He is the firstborn in a matter of rank.

God’s angels are obedient to Him. Psalm 103:20 Bless the LORD, you His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His word, obeying the voice of His word!

Psalm 148:2 Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts!

Angels do not accept worship. John had bowed to an angel in the previous verse. He was promptly corrected by the angel. Revelation 22:9 But he said to me, “Do not do that. I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brethren the prophets and of those who heed the words of this book. Worship God.”

We, humans, are not to worship or pray to angels. The apostle Paul says it is pointless. Why pray to an angel when you can communicate directly with the God of the universe? Colossians 2:18 Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind… The point is to focus on Christ.

Angel Info

Posted in Creation, Isaiah with tags , , , , , , , on November 4, 2012 by paulthepoke

What does the Bible have to say about Angels? God’s word does not give an account about how angels were created. The Bible does not say when angels were created. But we do know that angels were created before the universe and humanity. Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy? The context of this verse is a line of questioning directed to Job by God. Job is being asked if he was present prior to the creation of the world. God is explaining to Job that He laid the foundation and measured it out. Then God informs Job that the “morning stars” and the “sons of God” observed this event, sang, and shouted. “Sons of God” is an idiomatic expression for angels in the Old Testament. “Morning stars” is a term for angels. These beings saw God create the earth.

We do know that God, specifically Christ, created the angels in Colossians 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.

Jesus tells us that angels are immortal and they do not marry in Luke 20:35-36. He is comparing angels to resurrected humanity. But those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; for they cannot even die anymore, because they are like angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.

There are two groups of angels, the elect and those fallen. There are the angels who follow Christ as noted in 1 Timothy 5:21 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of His chosen angels, to maintain these principles without bias, doing nothing in a spirit of partiality.

The fallen angels are those who are evil and follow Satan. Of the fallen angels, there are two groups. Some of the fallen are incarcerated. 2 Peter 2:4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment… Some of the fallen angels are currently loose and free. Jesus encounters these demons in Luke 8:30 And Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion”; for many demons had entered him.

Man will ultimately judge angels. The Apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 6:3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?

Humanity was not created to go to a fiery end. Man was originally created perfect and eternal. Hell was designed for fallen angels. Jesus Himself tells us in Matthew 25:41 “Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels.

Isaiah 6:2 Seraphim in the Throne Room

Posted in Isaiah with tags , , , on October 28, 2012 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 6:2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

This passage is one of the better verses in the Bible to physically describe what a seraph looks like. The Hebrew word is seraph. Seraphim is the plural form of the word. According to Strong’s Concordance, the word isdefined asserpent, fiery serpent, poisonous serpent (fiery from burning effect of poison). The word literally means burning one.

There are other terms for angels in the Bible. They include: sons of God, holy ones, morning stars, cherubim, ministering spirits, and watchers.

The creature has six wings. One interesting note is the part of the verse in reference to covering his feet. Some scholars have suggested this is an idiomatic reference to genitals. Revelation 4 does mention creatures with six wings in the throne room of Heaven. Revelation 4:8 And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within. Previous verses in Revelation indicate the faces of the creatures are different from each other.

The word seraph can also be translated as a poisonous snake. See Numbers 21:6 The LORD sent fiery serpents (seraph) among the people and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. A second example is Deuteronomy 8:15. “He led you through the great and terrible wilderness, with its fiery serpents (seraph) and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water; He brought water for you out of the rock of flint.

In Isaiah 14:29, seraph is translated as a flying snake. “Do not rejoice, O Philistia, all of you, because the rod that struck you is broken; for from the serpent’s root a viper will come out, and its fruit will be a flying serpent (seraph).

The Hebrew word for angel is malak in the Old Testament. Malak defined means: messenger, representative, angel, the theophanic angel or the Angel of the Lord.

The Greek word for angel is aggelos in the New Testament. Aggelos defined means: a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, an angel, a messenger from God.
