(Ver 1.0) This Part 1 in a Bible lesson series concerning the Satanic Strategy and Plan Designed to attempt to take over full control of America and the Entire World. Hopefully you have studied the Bible enough to know that Satan is working hard on planet earth to create death and destruction (Jn 10:10). If you have ever read the book of Revelation, there are many references where Satan is displaying rage and fury while attempting to control everyone to be forced into receiving the mark of the beast. It is here on the earth where Satan rules the kingdom of darkness (Mat 12:26, Col 1:13). Satan is called the “god of this present world system” in 2 Corinthians 4:4. In this verse we are clearly informed that he has blinded the minds of every human that does not believe that Jesus is the Son of God sent into the world in the flesh to save them. In Revelation 12:9 this same spiritual enemy is said to have “deceived” the entire world with implied untruthful words spoken into our minds revealed to us in 2 Corinthians 10:5. Here in these two verses (2 Cor 4:4, Rev 12:9) we discover two major strategies for the Satanic agenda to take over the world that we need to become aware of. First, there is his goal in 1 Corinthians 4:4 that states Satan is causing significant human mental and spiritual blindness in the minds and hearts of humans so that they will not be able to receive God’s truth to get saved. For instance, if you don’t believe in Satan, demons, devils, spirits, angels, heaven, hell, God and Jesus then Satan has already caused a significant part of your mind to become veiled concerning spiritual realities of truth.
Then we can apply the light of Revelation 12:9 and 2 Corinthians 10:5 to begin to discover one significant way that Satan causes mental and spiritual blindness to occur. This inability to see and understand truth is accomplished by spreading enticing words of deception, temptation, distraction into our hearts to feed our carnal human natural desires enough to confuse us from seeing and receiving the truth. If Satan can deceive us in our mind with entertaining and distracting thoughts, then he has us on a wide pathway leading to our destruction (Mat 7:13). Therefore, God commands us in 2 Corinthians 10:5 to cast down every imagination and high thing (evil spirit) that attempts to exalt itself against the knowledge of God and bring into captivity every thought (G3540) to the obedience of Christ. There is a spiritual battle taking place in our mind almost every minute of the day for the supremacy of our thought life and beliefs.
INTRODUCTION TO THE REALITY OF A SATAN PLAN
I just gave you several verses in the opening which teach us Satan is operating with a planned agenda of evil. But, let’s begin this part of our subject introduction by reading one of the first direct reference to Satan in the Bible. We need to know that one of the first times Satan is mentioned in Bible book order is found in Genesis 3. However, that does not mean that this is the first time Satan was written about in the Bible. The Book of Job is the oldest known written book of the Bible and Satan was clearly written about in this book. Also note that in Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel we can find references written about Satan way after the Book of Job and the Law of Moses but these writings reveal Satan long before Adam ever existed on the earth. Therefore, understand my intended direction is only to go to the first recorded human relationship and interaction with Satan in Biblical book order. Genesis 3 contains God’s reference to Satan with direct human interaction and influence after creation of our present world system. We will begin our section reading in Genesis 3:1:
Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
I want to focus on only the first part of this verse. The Holy Spirit directs Moses to describe a being named the “serpent”. This is a symbolic title description for Satan. But Satan was hidden in a symbolic reference and we are not informed of the “true identity” of this being until reading about him again in Revelation 12. In Revelation 12:3 the Holy Spirit directed the Apostle John to record what appears to be a new symbolic being which was described to be the “great red dragon”. We could assume that this was a new living being that was described but, God provides us the revelation and symbolic definitions in Revelation 12:9 to teach us this larger symbolic dragon being is really the devil also called Satan. Then immediately in the same verse all this new information is then linked to the beginning to teach us that this dragon also represents the “old serpent” of Genesis 3. This is a God inspired revelation and definition and it teaches us significant truths about our enemy. The serpent, the dragon, the devil and Satan are all the same spiritual being using different titles, symbols, descriptions and names. This is just one way that God hides the truth in plain sight for us to search and find.
What we learn from these two symbolic representations (old serpent, great red dragon) is the existence of a major transformation across a span of time from the beginning of man’s history on the Earth until the near end of man’s existence in the present age. This change occurred over 6000 years and was from one much smaller old serpent symbolic version of Satan in the beginning (Genesis) who has now grown in significant implied size, power and ability becoming a great red dragon symbolic version of Satan by the end of man in Revelation. Wow, that is very important information to learn about your enemy.
Now, notice the Hebrew word H6175 that was translated in the KJV as “subtil” in Genesis 3:1. This word describes the symbolic serpent we found out to be Satan. This Hebrew word H6175 means “to be cunning or crafty”. This Hebrew word is describing an intelligent being that is very intentionally negative and evil towards humans from the very beginning of creation. Let me give you some synonyms from the English that relate to this description of Satan being subtle. Satan can synonymously be referred to as a being that is cunning, crafty, devious, sneaky, sly, tricky, calculating, shifty, wily and even mean.
These are not positive qualities and they describe the antithesis of the character of our God. However, all these negative descriptions characterize a spiritual being of high intelligence with the mental ability to devise a plan for a purposed goal and outcome of evil deception. In fact, if you continue to read Genesis 3 and other parts of the Bible, you will find that Satan accomplished his plan. For example, we learn of Satan’s success by reading in Luke 4:5-6 where Satan offers all of the kingdoms of this world as a temptation for Jesus if He would just worship him. In these verses Satan claimed all these world kingdoms were given to him. How can this be since, it was Adam that was given dominion of the earth in Genesis 1:26. This could only be true if there was a change of ownership that was transferred from Adam to Satan during this early history of man. Remember 2 Corinthians 4:4 still calls Satan the “god of this world” even after the LORD Jesus was raised from the dead and ascended into heaven. That sounds like Satan believes that he is in control of a large portion of this world to me. However, I do not believe Satan rules over Christians, but that is only if we submit to God and resist the devil (James 4:7) so that we don’t cooperate with Satan’s plan.
Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
There are significant number of people that teach and believe Satan either does not exist or is not a factor for us as Christians to be concerned about today as a saved believer in the cross, death, burial and resurrection of the LORD Jesus. However, that is not what the Bible reveals to us. Please read the context of this verse in Ephesians 6. God is revealing that Christians are in a spiritual battle with Satan and need to clothe themselves with His spiritual armor to be able to keep standing against his attacks. We learn from this that Satan is still attacking us. I included this verse in our lesson because it is written to the church and God informs us that Satan (the old serpent) who tricked Eve in Genesis is still implementing the same plan to try and trick Christians. The key word that needs to be understood is G3180 that is translated as “wiles” in this verse. “Wile” is defined as a devious or cunning strategy employed in manipulating or persuading someone to do what one wants them to do. This is a synonymous term for someone being “subtle”.
What does this sound like you? It should be obvious that Satan is implementing the same tricks today to deceive us as he did with Eve the first woman and Adam the first man. Now, factor in the knowledge of Revelation 12 where this old small symbolic Satan has become significantly greater in size with an implied increase in power, strength and ability and apply this to what he could be capable of doing today in the world. This knowledge should motivate us to want to learn more about this unseen being in order to not be misled like Eve was in the garden by his sneaky plan. If you do not think you can be tricked by this subtle Satan now because you are a saved Christian, I would strongly suggest that you read Paul’s warning to the saved Church:
2Co 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds (G3540) should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Wow, reading this should also cause us to want to learn about our enemy and his ability and plan to deceive every Christian if he is able to trick us into believing wrong. Look at the description and wording being given. God says the “serpent beguiled Eve”. Beguiled literally means seduced and deceived and this is exactly what Satan did and you can read it clearly in Genesis 3:13 by Eve’s own admission. We begin to learn how Satan accomplishes this deception by a God revelation given to Paul. Please, go back and read the verse again.
Did you notice where the trickery takes place in this verse in 2 Corinthians 11:3? According to the Holy Spirit Eve was tricked in her mind and Paul feared that those in the church that he was teaching would fall into the exact identical trap. Then notice this word translated as “minds” is a Greek Word that is translated as “devices” in 2 Corinthians 2:11. Let’s back up to the first time this Greek word is used in the New Testament to a verse written on the same subject in the same book to the same people in the church. Read about what this word was originally referring to:
2Co 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices (G3540).
Paul wrote extensively about this subject to the church at Corinth and told them that we should not be ignorant (meaning unaware, uninformed or unfamiliar) of Satan’s devices (G3540). This Greek word G3540 is used only 6 times in the entire New Testament with the majority found 5 times in this book. The Greek word G3540 which was translated as “devices” in this verse literally means “a perception”. One definition of the word “perception” is a way of regarding, understanding or interpreting information, and can also be referred to as a mental impression. We can easily learn that this is God speaking of a mental ability.
This Greek word G3540 comes from G3539 a word that means “to exercise the mind”. By implication this Greek word is speaking of the human mind’s ability to understand a subject. In fact, this Greek word was most often translated in the KJV Bible as “minds” in four N.T. verses where it was selected for use by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we have 4 times it was translated as “minds” and once as “devices” so far. But in the sixth verse where it is found in 2 Corinthians 10:5 the Greek word G3540 was specifically translated as a “thought” of the human mind. I quoted this verse in the opening paragraph of this lesson for this reason. Therefore, the word “devices” in 2 Corinthians 2:11 could very easily say “we are not ignorant of his thoughts or his mind” instead of “his devices”.
It appears to me from gaining this knowledge that Christians must become aware that we are engaged in a constant internal spiritual battle for the control of our mind and more specifically our thoughts. I believe that this thought war is one of Satan’s primary tactics used to deceive and distract a human. When he is successful, we will learn that it is even possible for him to eventually conquer and control them. It is critical to know, understand and discern that not every thought that we think in our mind comes from us. In fact, a thought can originate from several sources. First, there are our own personal thoughts and we can choose to think about anything we want. Then there are thoughts that come from the Spirit of God and these need to be recognized and embraced. But there are also thoughts that can come from other spiritual beings including good angels, bad angels, Satan, devils, demons, etc. How are you going to know the difference? You can’t unless you know the Bible.
Also note that Satan can use a thought and make it sound like it was something that came from us. Therefore, we can learn how Satan can be so tricky, cunning and subtle. Satan is not usually going to come into your mind and say, “This is Satan, go kill yourself”. No, he is smarter than that and will make us think “life is not worth living, I wish I was dead”. Wow, that makes us sound like we are the one that is crazy doesn’t it? Where do you think that human mental and emotional depression comes from? You could be feeling very depressed by Satan’s thoughts standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon and the thought just comes that says, “I should just jump and end it all now”.
Other thoughts from Satan might be “I was just born this way”, “I really love or I can’t live without alcohol, drugs, food, sex, etc., ….”, “I just can’t help myself”, “I am so ugly”, “I am so fat”, “I just can’t live without him or her”, “I can’t do anything right”, etc. Further, notice that 2 Corinthians 2:11 says that Satan can gain a significant advantage over any Christian through this mental distraction and deception process. Let’s review a verse that I mentioned earlier because it has the exact same Greek word that was translated as “devices”.
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds (G3540) of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
We learn from reading related subject study verses like this one in 2 Corinthians 4:4 that Satan possesses a very strong mental ability to utilize intelligent strategies against a human mind to cause people to see things that are not true to believe they are true and then see things that are true as though they are not true. That is what this verse says. People are taught the glorious Gospel Truth in church, TV, radio, by people in person and then Satan tricks them into not believing in Jesus as Savior and Messiah to be lost and go to hell. This is obviously his plan and strategy for every human. Let me give you some other English synonyms for the English word “devices” that we read about in 2 Corinthians 2:11. An enemy’s devises can be viewed as his ideas, thoughts, plan, plot, scheme, subversion, insurrection, rebellion, formulation, preparation and design used against humans. These words are all intentional activities attempting to cause a human to be tricked into becoming ineffective against Satan and ultimately completely controlled.
I believe firmly that Satan gives humans subtle thoughts to accomplish his evil plans. If people cooperate with these thoughts his plan is accomplished. I also want to teach that these thoughts are used in the minds other people, even Christians to turn against someone else to cause division, anger, strife, hatred and on and on until it reaches murder. Deception can come through Satan’s influence of another human speaking directly to them using their voice to speak to you. You can see this is also a very effective trick of our enemy. If Satan can capture the mind of someone that we look up to, respect, and want to listen to then we are given him an open door into our mind. This is happening today in many public schools, colleges and universities to our children. They are being fed intermixed poisonous lies with random truths as if they are all teaching only truths.
This is very important information to learn the strategy of your enemy and to know who your enemy is really. We all have a lot to learn.
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.
We can see clearly that Christians are not in a physical war with anyone on the earth. However, we should not be ignorant and should know that there are a lot of evil people on the planet doing a lot of mean things to other people and trying to deceive us. We learn from Ephesians 6:12 we are in warfare against, principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness and spiritual wickedness in heavenly places. This list is one reference to the existence of the spiritual rank of authority within Satan’s kingdom of darkness. It is for this reason, I said that thoughts to influence us personally to do evil or other people to do evil against us can come from all these different spiritual sources.
What I am attempting to teach is Satan is not stupid and in fact his mental ability is far beyond our natural human reasoning without renewing our minds (Rom 12:2) with God’s superior knowledge, understanding and wisdom to help us. Remember how old you are? Now, remember how old Satan is implied to be? He was just called “the old serpent” in Revelation 12. We also can calculate that Adam lived nearly 6000 years ago. Therefore, Satan has been deceiving humans for nearly 6000 years and you have just begun to learn how he operates. Who do you think is smarter? Unless we are in very close relationship with the Spirit of God and His Word, Satan is easily winning the battle in our mind.
Also remember that we further learn from 2 Corinthians 2:11 that Satan’s intellectual abilities can gain an “advantage” over a Christian because of their implied ignorance or lack of understanding of God’s Word. The term “advantage” simply means Satan has the winning edge in the battle. For example, in the sport of tennis if your opponent obtains “advantage” over you and then can win the next point they are legally awarded the game. This is a very interesting application to our mental war with the devil. We do not want to give Satan the advantage to set us up for defeat by agreeing with his mind and his thoughts. We want the advantage over him by eliminating our ignorance of his strategy. We only get this by gaining the knowledge of God’s Word and being led by His Spirit constantly. The moment we get back into the flesh we are most susceptible to defeat.
Being ignorant of our enemy is a very dangerous state of existence according to the Bible. In Hosea 4:6 God informs us “My people (including Christians) are destroyed for a lack of knowledge, because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you…”. If we do not make the effort to learn about our evil spiritual enemy, how his abilities can be used to deceive us or destroy us, how spiritual thoughts work to influence our choices, what Jesus has given to us, who we are in Christ and etc. then we are candidates to be easily conquered . Any wise military commander recognizes that the more they know and understands about their enemy they can use this to gain an advantage. Christians need to know the enemy’s tactics, their strengths, their weaknesses, their strategies and plans to operate against God’s children.
Believe it or not Christians are in a constant spiritual warfare with an unseen spiritual enemy (2 Cor 10:4, Eph 6:13-18). We know that Jesus has won the ultimate victory (Col 2:15), yet Satan is still exercising great influence over the planet and appears to be implementing an ultimate plan to try to take over the planet Earth and heaven completely. If Christians are not aware of Satan’s schemes, systems, organization, devices and plans there is little going to slow Satan from appearing to be very successful.
HOW SATAN IS IMPLEMENTING HIS PLAN TODAY
I have observed in the last 50+ years the moral decay of the USA and the world. All we need to do is to observe trends in the media, TV, movies, books and now the internet. What was once hidden secret sins, are now openly promoted and protected as a prideful normal and acceptable behavior. Evil has grown significantly more influential in numbers and ability within Satan’s kingdom of darkness. We have seen the rise of lawlessness and rebellious behavior in so many people, the increase of disloyalty, the surge of self-indulgencies with acceptance of legal drug abuse, alcoholism, gambling, lotteries and other habitual forms of Satanic control. These sins are filling up the cups of iniquity to an overflowing measure in our streets.
We have observed many Christians in the last 50+ years widely and passively allowing this evil plan to happen by not praying, speaking out or participating in voting or running for political offices of authority! One wise person said, “The only thing necessary for evil to prevail, is for the good people to do nothing”. Wow, this has been happening all over the world.
Here in the United States, the un-elected 9 members of the US. Supreme Court have been allowed to make laws that the US Constitution does not give them the right to enact. Only the US Congress and the elected officials in the states, the counties and the cities working for the people that voted for them, have the legal authority and the right to make any law. Therefore, if a law is enacted that is in opposition to the truth of God’s Word, we should be rapidly changing our lawmaker selection. These activist judges have changed the course of the United States and placed us on a pathway to destruction by forcing the acceptance of the Satanic agenda. Here are just a few examples:
- The allowance and acceptance to increase federal government power and control from unelected permanently hired bureaucrats.
- the forced elimination of God, prayer and the Bible from being taught to our children in public schools,
- the forced acceptance of murdering our children in the womb
- the forced acceptance of Godless marriages in every state removing the Biblical definition of a God defined true marriage between a man and a woman.
These are just 4 major examples of Satan’s plan that has already been implemented through US court rulings. There are more that have not been fully implemented yet that I did not mention. How can the votes of 5 unelected judges with no accountability to anyone, overrule God, the Bible, the will of the “majority” of the people and force them to accept the immoral ways of a minority of the people?
Through the years of recent history, we have observed the rapid moral decay of our elected government officials. Many of these people lie to our faces believing that we are stupid enough to accept their promises as truth. However, there are a lot of people today that do believe the lies. Notice, what is different about my Bible lesson from the other ways people are working today. I am not naming names of people and I am not accusing anyone specifically to be responsible for this other than Satan.
If you are unaware of the freedoms that we were originally given to us in the USA, then you are probably unaware of how these freedoms are slowly being removed as a basic human right. I am a very firm believer that Satan must take these rights away in order to gain the control of people. Here are some of the main rights that will vanish quickly if Christians do not pray and elect right people in the government.
- Freedom to speak (preach, teach) the Gospel in private or public including radio, TV, internet, books, CD’s, etc.
- Freedom to speak any conservative or Bible Truth in public or on the internet without consequences of being blocked or removed from the platform
- Freedom to speak anything that is not in agreement with the coming Satanic One World Government Agenda
- Freedom to stand for God’s definition of a normal marriage being between only one male in union with one female for life.
- Freedom to embrace the scientific truth of fact that human gender is determined from the contribution of the father’s sperm X or Y chromosome being joined with the X chromosome of the female egg contribution. An all XX is a female and an XY is a male. God and science teaches us that the human that was birthed does not determine this gender choice.
- Freedom to share about the Bible and Jesus to someone not a Christian
- Freedom to assemble peacefully in a Church or public setting
- Freedom to defend oneself from evil and the enemies in the world
- Presumed Innocence of all alleged charges and accusations
- Right to a fair trial for any alleged accusation before being found guilty
- Right to unbiased legal assistance
- Equal Justice under the Law for every alleged criminal act and not selected agendas items against those that are not in agreement with their beliefs
All these freedoms and others must be ended for the Satanic agenda to control every person on the earth. Then there are other agenda items that must be fully initiated in order to complete the control of every human:
- Planned Elimination of Absolute and Scientific Empirical Truth for the establishment of unfounded, untruthful and unprovable lies and theories, i.e. Evolution, etc.
- Planned Elimination of national sovereignty and national borders to accommodate a supposed greater one new world order of central global control strategy and solution
- Planned Elimination of all defensible firearms completely except in the government for power and control
- Planned Elimination of printed money and all coins to promote a supposed safer non-monetary electronic system of buying and selling
- Planned Elimination of all open and independent food sources, other than governmentally controlled sources
- Planned Elimination of private farms, businesses, manufacturing, etc., with the government owning and controlling every food producing area
- Panned Elimination of all power sources not approved and owned by the government
- Planned Elimination of all private and public non-approved transportation not owned and controlled by the government
Think about what it is that you freely enjoy today that allows you to be independent from the government and observe how this freedom is being eroded away from you through some proposed agenda and alleged issue. We have people today telling us we can’t eat beef because this is potentially causing greenhouse gases destroying our world. We have this same charge being used to say we all must give up our motorcycles, cars, trucks, buses and airplanes because they emit too many harmful gases and we are all going to die if we don’t.
There are also other Satanic Strategies that are on the agenda to be implemented and are happening right now in part in the USA and the entire world.
- Planned Control of approved, accepted language terms and words by forcing new corrected word definitions within every conversation. For example, it is no longer called “abortion” because it has been relabeled as “women’s healthcare” choices. This makes what was evil sound more tolerant and acceptable. We are also told we can’t call anyone a he, she, him or her only them or they so there is no longer any offensive gender reference attached to our descriptions.
- The planned Insulting, defaming and slandering of the good character of anyone that is not in agreement with the Satanic agenda is happening all over in the world
- Making it a crime to oppose the devious stated good purpose and plan of the wise government which will become punishable by jail, prison or even death is on the rise
- Most Satanic Governmental control strategies are based upon making the entire human population totally dependent upon them for their source of finances, their ability to spend their finances, their healthcare, their food supply and the ability to buy food and our dependence upon our protection from the evil people of the world to name a few.
There are literally many other Satanic Agenda items that can be observed happening now in our world and many of these are prophesied to happen in the Bible. That is what this Bible study series s going to attempt to address. If you did not read an item that you see happening in the present world and feel that it is very important to note, please leave us a comment and share it with others. Let’s look over just one example of Bible verses spoken by the LORD Jesus that concern this subject of what will be happening right before He returns, and we should be able to observe some of the specific things that I just listed. We will be reading in Luke 21 today for our introduction to the topic:
Mat 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Mat 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Mat 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
Mat 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Mat 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
These things that I underlined are just a few of the prophesied evils that Satan will initiate. Always remember these things are designed to replace faith with fear which can lead a good Christian to be deceived. Jesus starts the description of events with a warning for His followers not to be deceived. Jesus informs us that many false Christs and prophets will arise with deceiving messages. If a Christian does not know their Bible very well, they can easily be tricked. I pray that you will always verify anything that anyone teaches you by your own personal Bible study to verify that what is said is what God said and that includes anything you read from me.
I have observed a few of these false Christs and false prophets. They do exist. I can name two extreme religious leaders right off the top of my head. There was Jim Jones in Jamestown Guyana in 1978 who caused around 900 of his followers to drink poison and die and then there was David Koresh who claimed to be the last prophet living in Waco Texas in 1993 that caused many of his followers to die in fire while being assaulted by the government. If you are going to go to your death by following any physical man on the earth, you have been deceived. If you are going to be killed by following our LORD Jesus Christ, that is a totally different situation. Make sure you know who you are following and who is killing you. It should not be someone on the earth claiming to be your Christian leader, teacher, prophet or Messiah. If it is, that is Satan deceiving you.
Jesus in verse 6 says there will be wars and rumors of wars. In the last 100 years we have observed many wars. Most have ended and others appear to go on indefinitely. The current war on terror that the USA has been involved with is a type of never-ending war against evil. No matter how many evil terrorists we kill, the devil in those dead terrorists just go into new people and keep the evil going. We should understand what God said to us in Ephesian 6:12 “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but with principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and wickedness in high places”.
Jesus in verses 9 and 10 informs us of a rise to hatred and we can certainly observe this all over the globe. I have never seen it at this level in my lifetime and it appears to be increasing. I have seen groups better to be called “gangs” on the news, beat isolated people that were not attacking the gang but rather just standing to document and observe the acts. I have seen 8 or 10 people beating just one unarmed human being for no good reason. This is hatred being exalted to control and silence others that are observing.
Ok, I’m not going to go through every verse of Jesus’ statements in Matthew today in this lesson. I just wanted to give you a taste of what the Bible says about the times that we are living in. I pray that this interests you. I also pray that it does not cause you to fear what is happening. I also pray that it does not offend you like Jesus said it would when the severe persecution grows stronger as it is happening right now. In the next lesson in this series, if the Lord is willing, I plan to get into specific Satanic agenda items that can be observed from Bible occurrences, prophecies and by simply watching the news. The first subject planned is Satan’s Desire to Silence the Church believers. I can see this rising slowly ever since the 1950’s. I believe that Satan knows that he must silence the church or his plan will not succeed. If he can keep us from sharing our testimony with others, preaching the Gospel and praying for the situations going on in the government and the world today, he has won.
God Bless you and thank you for reading these Bible Study lessons. If you would share them with your friends on Social Media that would be a blessing to me and to them. Thank you for being a blessing. I love you and Jesus loves us all and He is coming very soon, believe it or not.
