Understanding Deception in the Bible! Satan Sacrifices His Pawn Osama Bin Laden in the Chess Game of Life! Part 5
(Ver 1.2) This is now Part 5 in a series of very advanced Bible lessons on the Bible concepts of deception. Today’s lesson will be a little bit different than the normal, but yet it will challenge you to think about some things that you may have never thought of before about deception. I have taught you a lot of new and very different things found in the Bible about deception and I pray that you have taken the time to read everything about this subject that I have posted. If not, please go back and start reading this series with the first lesson “Part 1” so that you do not miss anything important that I have said. In the news a few days ago late at night a special report broke into the regular programming with a news bulletin that informed us “Osama Bin Laden was killed”. I listened to these reports for nearly an hour and then the President of the United States came on and gave us the official announcement that it was true. I do not know about you, but when I see things this significant happen in the world I look at them from a spiritual perspective and try to figure out why this occurred right now at this exact point in time. You see I personally do not believe that anything in the world occurs by chance or accident. Nor do I believe that God causes things to occur to fulfill His will or purpose. Based upon my knowledge of the Bible, I believe there are multiple factors involved in everything that transpires on the earth and most of them are either human or demonic initiated rather than those events which are the occasional work of divine intervention. God will intervene when people pray and ask Him to intervene. However, we know from the prayer that Jesus taught His disciples that God’s will is not done on the earth unless we pray and ask for His will to be done (Luke 11:2). This prayer also asks for the kingdom of God to come, so we know the kingdom of God was not already present when Jesus taught the disciples this prayer. If you disagree with those statements, you should learn how to read and see what God says in the Bible before you demonstrate your ignorance and write me a comment about how I’m wrong. The Bible goes on and tells us in 2 Corinthians 4:4 that Satan is the god of this world which implies that God is not the God of this world system. Please understand that God rules in His Kingdom, but we are not living in His Kingdom right now. Maybe you do not understand what I am saying. If you are a Christian, you have the Kingdom of God inside of you, but this is not what you are walking around in physically in the world. God is a Spirit and His kingdom is an internal spiritual Kingdom. If God rules in your heart, then you can show people in the world the Kingdom of God in demonstration, but they cannot see it otherwise. There is also the factor that God says that whatever a man sows, that is what he will reap (Gal 6:7). So when things occur in this world suddenly you need to look at what seeds were sown to cause the things that we are observing to spring up. I know for a fact that Ben Laden sowed seeds of death and I know he reaped death back this week. These are just a few of the factors that cause things to happen in this world. Do you understand these factors?
I personally believe that Adam was created to be the god of this world in the beginning. Then Adam sinned and allowed Satan to come in and now Satan is the god of this world system (2 Cor 4:4). People are the cause of all of the manifested evil in the world as we can clearly see from the life of Osama Bin Laden. But we are also told something else that is very important for us to know and to understand in the Bible. God tells us in the Bible that people are not our problem. Wow, that is not what I saw on TV this week. We had a nation of people rejoicing at the death of a person who was nothing but just a man. I also saw the President’s approval rating that was dropping, suddenly rise through the roof because the U.S. killed a man. There were people in the streets of N.Y. and Washington D.C. that were clearly overjoyed that an evil man was killed. Take a look at this Bible verse and you please tell me what it says:
Eph 6:12 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.
What does this verse say? Doesn’t God tell us that people are not our problem? If we are in a spiritual battle as this verse implies, we need to understand who the enemy is. Osama Bin Laden is not the enemy since clearly he was flesh and blood. It is the spirit that controlled Osama Bin Laden that is our problem. Guess what is going to happen now? Since we just killed the U.S. number one natural enemy, Satan is going to promote another man to become the new number one. Terrorism has not ceased just because someone died. Satan is the terrorist maker and he is still alive and well on the planet. God clearly tells us there is nothing new under the sun, the thing that has been is the thing that shall be again (Ecc 1:9). Therefore, please do not be lulled into a false sense of security simply because one natural enemy was killed. You can look down through history and see that there have been many evil men who have killed people in the world. Every time an Adolf Hitler is killed a new man is raised up to become another of the same types of evil initiators. Do you understand this? Why does this happen? It is because the same spirit will cause another man to be deceived into doing what the preceding one failed to finish.
The Holy Spirit woke me up early the morning after Ben Laden’s death in order to explain what is happening in the world and since God is smarter than me, I listened to what He was saying. I am going to tell you what He said to me and you can choose to believe it or reject it, I personally do not care which one you choose. God explained to me that our life and the world that we live in are like a spiritual Chess Game. If you have never played the game of chess, you will probably not have a clue what I am about to tell you, but I’ll try to explain it so that you can gain the overall concepts. Chess is a warfare game between two opposing sides, which is played on a board of 64 squares. Sound familiar? The Bible is divided into two opposing sides, God and Satan. Each side in the chess game has 16 different game pieces. One side is usually 16 black pieces and the other side is usually 16 white pieces. But, this is not a racial game, just two colors that are opposites. It really is a traditional good vs. evil type of game. One side is you and the other side is the evil enemy trying to kill you. You are faced with the challenge of defending your pieces while simultaneously attacking your enemy to take his pieces. Does any of this sound familiar like in the war on terror that the U.S. has been fighting for the last 10 years? In the game of chess each game piece has a rank and an order of value associated with them. A pawn is the least valuable piece and the King is the most valuable. You can lose every piece that you have except the King and survive. However, power is another factor and the queen is the most powerful piece on the board and the pawn is the least powerful. There is one unique factor of the game that a pawn can become a queen if it is moved to the extreme farthest square that it can move to. The game of chess is a thinking game of strategy based upon a battle of wits. Therefore, chess is a mental game usually for very intelligent people. Which I do not claim to be one, since I never achieved to the level of a Grand Master in this game. The more you understand about chess warfare the better chess opponent you can become. Chess game players are usually rated based upon their win and loss record. The higher you rating, the better a player you are viewed to be. That was a very quick synopsis of an extremely complex game, but I am not here to teach you about chess today. I am only here to tell you about just one strategy found in a chess master’s execution library that God says happened this week on the news. Many times a Chess Master will use a deception technique called “sacrifice” that will allow his opponent to take one of his pieces, but usually this act of sacrifice is a hidden ploy to gain a future advantage. In other words one side sacrifices one piece now to gain a greater advantage in the future part of the game that has not yet occurred. Did you understand this concept? It is a very advanced technique of deception and it requires extreme intelligence, forethought and planning. In other words the Chess Master may have looked foolish for giving up a key piece right now, but as you watch the game develop you will see the strategy take place and the advantage will change.
You see this is exactly what Satan did this week with his pawn “Bin Laden”. Satan gave up one key piece of his current game plan to gain a greater advantage in the future. Keep in mind Satan has more than one game piece in play at any given time. Satan is using a strategy play here with the sacrifice of Ben Laden. You can tell this by the fact that if suddenly after 10 years of not being able to find Ben Laden we are now able to miraculously find him there was something that transpired to cause it to happen. People like to think that it was the U.S. intelligence ability and that proves our superiority, but this is not the case. Yes the killing of Osama was based upon intelligence work, but who let the information out to them? I personally believe it was Satan and that this was not an accident. If you can see the power of this play you will not fall into the deception that is being presented like many have already done. If you do not understand chess very well then you may not be able to understand what I just said.
What does the world seek after more than anything? Those in the world are seeking after peace. However, Satan will never fully give anyone full peace, only the deception of peace will be presented. People in Washington D.C., in New York and other parts of the U.S. have been jumping on a false security of new found peace and victory and this is what Satan is after. The majority of the U.S. population is suddenly more united and feeling good about the world’s situation. It is funny that nothing technically changed from a week ago, except that one man was killed but the attitude of accomplishment has promoted a single man back into political prominence and dominance. Because there is a coming presidential election next year, Satan desires even Christians to feel like we have the correct man in this U.S. office. You see after the elimination of America’s number one enemy this week, our president Obama went from a non-re-electable man to become a favorite front runner with a very high popular opinion. My personal opinion of the president has not changed, but I am not deceived like many others. I did not vote for the man in last election and I would not vote for him in the next either. You see Jesus said you will know them by their fruits and whenever a man promotes abortions and homosexuality they are not a Christian or a Christ follower. That is just the way it is, even if you do not like it. Jesus said “Why call me Lord and do not the things that I say”. Our president claims to be a Christian, yet his actions prove him as being far from it.
Be not deceived from the things that are external that mean little to nothing in the world. Open the spiritual eyes of your understanding to see the high cost spiritual chess game of life that is being played out behind the scenes. First, start by recognizing who the real enemy is in the world. Satan is the only enemy that you should be focused on. Then the Bible tells us to submit ourselves unto God and to resist the devil and he will flee from us. Then begin to see and understand the world events more clearly in the light of God’s Word which also implies that you know God’s Word. If you do not know and understand Bible prophecy, like the book of Revelation, you are an easy candidate for deception. As long as there is a Satan in the world, we will have evil taking place around us and it will get worse as we go and not better. Take a look at this next Bible verse and pay attention to the warning given:
Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Once you begin to realize that Satan knows that his time is very short, you will soon see that his rage and anger will increase and he will move into desperation mode trying to kill everyone that he can take with him. But in order to do this he is going to have to raise to power the people in the world that he needs to support his plan. Satan does not want a Christian to be President of the most powerful nation of the world. Satan will use any form of deception that is necessary to accomplish his plan. There is a man of sin coming to the earth and he could be here already. This man is called the antichrist in the Bible and he will oppose God, Jesus, the Bible and Christians and will do everything in his power to disrupt the plan of God from happening. Satan will cause the antichrist to rise to power using these deceptive strategies that I have just taught you about in this series. Deception will cause a false sense of accomplishment and a feeling of new found safety to come on people and this will cause them to look to a man on the earth to solve their problems. I saw this attitude when people elected Obama the first time. They saw him as a savior and exalted him based upon no accomplishments, just words. Now people are doing it again, they have rallied around a president because they think he accomplished something when in reality he has done nothing to solve the root cause of the problem. Satan would not have allowed Obama to find Ben Laden if there was not something else on the agenda. There would have been no accomplishment for anyone to see if there was no dead evil man for the world to witness this week.
Ok, do not get me wrong. I am not saying Obama is the antichrist, I do not know that and I would be crazy to try to speculate who the antichrist is right now. I personally do not believe people will know who the antichrist is until it is too late. But I do believe that we can look for certain clues based upon the Word of God. The antichrist will come in like a man of peace looking like the world’s savior and this should be your first clue of warning. So far this sounds a lot like Obama who was given the Noble Peace prize while never establishing any peace. It just may be an amazing coincidence I don’t really know, unless God says something we will not know. There are other factors, that also point against Obama and one of them is the prophecy in Daniel that seems to say the antichrist will be a homosexual. Obviously if Obama is a homosexual he has us all fooled with a wife and two daughters. So take into account every prophecy and not just some of them. If you have not read my series on the “Antichrist” I would recommend that you do that. I am not technically finished with that series, but since I lost my computer hard drive a week ago I will have to start over on it.
So should the U.S. be in a war on terror? I personally believe that the U.S. had no choice but to enter this fight. So I am not saying that we should have turned the other cheek and not done anything against Ben Laden the terrorists who attacked us. I am not saying Christians should be passive. Nor am I saying we should not defend ourselves. Since there are evil men in the world and the only thing that gets their attention is physical force and power, I believe both of these, need to be demonstrated. That is until Jesus shows up in the clouds and then things will certainly change and that will get their attention all right. No I believe in guns! I believe in using them when necessary! But, I am also saddened to think a man is in hell right now and he has no opportunity to get out. Eternity is a concept and proposition that we cannot really comprehend. Being eternally punished just because you were tricked into believing a lie is a concept that many Christians do not want to believe that a loving God could do. Yet the Bible clearly tells us that the path to destruction is very wide and there are many who go there. This is exactly why I teach like I do. I am plain and direct and I tell it like it is regardless of what it costs me, so that somebody may be able to see it and learn the truth.
When you begin to understand that deception is Satan’s only weapon against you, then you begin to understand you need to learn this subject extensively. If people go to hell because they have been deceived you better make sure you know the truth and that you are not being deceived into this same eternal state that Ben Laden has found himself in. Today’s lesson is a complex small part of the subject of deception but yet it is so powerful that I felt you needed to read about it and to understand it clearly. A sacrifice of one evil man for the promotion of another evil man is how the antichrist will come into power. I believe this with all of my heart. How else would the entire world fall into the rapid deception of following a man, unless they could see him to be the answer to their deepest problems? If a man’s popularity can rise dramatically simply because he killed an evil man, to me that is a sign of a clear act of hidden deception. Since Satan is still the god of this world, we must realize then who is causing these types of things to occur and then figure out why. If you want to believe they are caused by God, you can do that and be wrong. If you want to believe they are just a coincidence, then you can do that and still be wrong again. Please understand and learn to see things with your spiritual eyes and then perceive them with the spirit inside you. Be sensitive to hear the voice of God and He will direct you to know the truth.
I began to learn the game of chess as a kid in 7th grade and I never mastered it. However, I obviously learned enough for God to teach me something from it. When I learned this game, a man named Bobby Fisher was the world champion chess master. I remember reading about his games that he played in the pater and trying to learn the moves that he made and the try to understand why. These concepts apply to Bible study and God if you understand them. The more you know the more God can use to speak to you about. It is a simple concept that God knows everything and we are just kids in His eyes. Learn everything you can from God’s word but then use what you know to understand God, Satan and the world around you. Thanks for taking the time to read my unusual Bible study and for listening to the words of God that He spoke in my heart this week. Until next time, may God bless you and keep you until next time.
