(Ver 1.0) This is now “Part 6” in the Bible study series about one of the most important modern-day human experiences of evil revealed in the Bible, and potentially taking place in our world today. This lesson series is either very hated or very loved. But it is written in extreme love and has the potential to enlighten many that the devil would like to kill. Sharing this information from the Holy Spirit may cause the loss of friendships. People who you thought were friends may not want to be your friend anymore. It is truly amazing the level of deception the devil has been able to achieve, with his inspired manmade crisis.
Every serious student of the Bible should know that there is an evil devil, that was originally named Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12). He is first identified in the Bible, to be a symbolic moon, being called the “lesser light” in Genesis 1:16. This moon symbol represents the devil, and he is said to be the ruler of the darkness in Psalm 136:9, and Ephesians 6:12. Then in Genesis 3:1 we find this same spiritual dark creature being identified as a symbolic “serpent” that deceived mankind (1 Timothy 2:14). We are never officially introduced to who this evil created symbolic serpent was, until he is defined by God in Revelation 12:9. In the first verse of this chapter, there just so happens to be “a woman” seen in heaven, who is standing with her feet in victory over him. Here in this chapter 12, verse 9, he is called the “old serpent”, and the “great red dragon”, and he is officially connected, to be named as 1) the devil, and 2) Satan. This makes all of these symbolic descriptions, and names to be equivalent for the being named Lucifer and it connects the first three chapters of Genesis to the book of Revelation directly.
We can now see, some of the ancient serpent’s related symbols and literal names, that we need to help us understand this revelation from the Holy Spirit. This confirms the identity of the spiritual power that has been planning, initiating and controlling all of the evil that has been taking place in our world. We can see and learn from reading 1 Timothy 2:26, that it is the devil, also known as the serpent, that is tricking and trapping humans to work out his will, and plan of evil on the earth.
If you have not read this study series from the beginning, it would be recommended that you go and start reading at “Part 1” first. But if you would like the quick general overview of what we have learned presented in summary form, you may read this lesson in isolation.
Before we begin, please understand what is being stated today in this lesson. This lesson series revolves around information provided by God from the book of Revelation. There are endless views and opinions that are taught, spoken, and written about on the internet about this information. It is one of the most controversial books of the Bible because of the vast numbers of views available.
This is where you must make the book come alive to you personally, through your own intimate study. For example, there are good Christians that teach a pre-tribulation rapture. Others teach a mid-tribulation rapture, and still others teach a post-tribulation rapture. We can study and see how all of these views could be seen as true. It is possible that whatever someone believes is true to them, is what will happen to them. We can base this upon the words of Jesus when He said; “According to your faith, be it unto you” (Matthew 9:29). Jesus appears to set a precedent in this statement that it is however you believe, that will determine what He will do for, or to you”. But you judge for yourself.
Always, be led by the Holy Spirit, and allow His Spirit to witness to your spirit. It does not matter what is said, here or from any other ministry, if it disagrees with what God is showing you personally. It is entirely possible, that there are multiple dimensions of available views that could be all true simultaneously based upon what God wants to say to us each at that moment.
This message series is agreed with by many Christians that are aware, and awake, and Satan is attempting to silence us all. There are two main objectives of the enemy that must be accomplished in order to succeed in a global conquest. The two necessary steps for evil to succeed are to 1) control all of the information available to the public, and 2) silence all of the opposing truth. If the enemy is able to continue fulfilling this plot of evil, the true church of the LORD Jesus Christ will all be required to die spreading the truth. Are you ready for this to happen? It is prophesied to occur later in the book of Revelation.
There are still limited freedoms in select parts of the world. But these are slowly being taken away step by step with the fear-based driven and coordinated propaganda message of the devil. This message consists of the original planned release of an exaggerated “crown” plague death, and is now continued with the serpent’s never-ending wave of one variation after the other. These have all been designed by the serpent to control the population and force us into compliance to the agenda.
What is the serpent’s agenda? It is not for anyone’s good. The serpent is still the “god of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4), and he is not here to help you, or make you safe. He is only come into the world to deceive us all (Revelation 12:9) and to steal, kill and destroy us (John 10:10) through his deception. This means you must determine whose side you will desire to be with, God who wins, or Satan who has already lost (1 Kings 18:21).
ARE THERE COINCIDENCES IN THE BIBLE?
As you know, we have been studying the prophecies of the book of Revelation. We have focused upon key God given words in the verses found in largely chapters 1, 6, 9, 12, and 13. No one has claimed that we are living through any of these soon coming tribulation days, here now in 2021. But we should be able to see, that there are several potential prophesied patterns of future events that appear to be happening to the world and the church NOW! Hopefully, we should be able to agree that these events must be a surprise attack from the enemy serpent, trying to gain advantage over every Christian and our God.
Jesus gave us a basic pattern to NOT follow in life in John 16:3. In this verse Jesus said “Oh you hypocrites, you can discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the time”. Jesus had just spoken to people who could foretell the weather of tomorrow, by just looking at their evening sky today, and called them hypocrites. But these weather predicting people, could not discern where in God’s timeline they were, because they were missing the visible signs of the visitation of God in the flesh who was standing right in front of them. Wow, that was a very strong statement.
Do you realize we are living right before the time of the return of Jesus to the earth to catch away His church? I do not believe very many people have fully understood how soon this could be happening. Satan certainly understands the times we are in. This is why there is happening such a massive attempt at a global conquest that is taking place.
Many of the events that were written about almost 2000 years ago in Revelation, have a distinct and amazing pattern of things that we can see happening in front of our eyes. There are only two choices for a person’s response to comparing what is written, to what is happening.
First, many spiritually awake and aware Christians will definitely be able to see how there is an amazing match of Bible details to current world events. These people have the ability to discern between good and evil and recognize the hidden motives behind the word messages and the ruling demands to conform to.
For example, ask; who is trying to deceive you? Who is trying to hurt you? Who wants to kill you? Is it this website? Or could it be the governments of the world? What do we have to gain from our message of warning? What do the governments and businesses have to gain from their forced demands? If you do not know the answers to these, please pray and ask God to show you the truth. Only people who can hear from God and can see the truth, will be able to pray and stand against the devil to overcome the evil plans.
But second, there are a lot of people, and even Christians that believe that the events that are happening now are for the good of the entire world, to save us all from death. These are the people listening to and agreeing with the false Jezebel government and media platforms. Ask yourself does the Jezebel rulers gain anything from their messages? Does the false prophet news gain anything from giving out the Jezebel ruler message? Ask God to help keep you out of the deception that is occurring everywhere, and to open your eyes to see what is really happening in the spiritual dimension.
People who put their trust and confidence in their government to help them, to look out for their good, and to supply their needs, do not recognize that it is only God who is the source of anything good. Deceived people will passively accept anything that they are told to do by the rulers and the false-media, and will never resist the serpent’s witchcraft of deception.
Many will try to ignore these Bible and world event similarities completely. Many will try to explain away the patterned information, because of the deception that has overwhelmed them. Others will just claim these are simply a few coincidences, and they “all” do not really match what we are seeing.
But there are no Bible Hebrew words that can be defined as a “coincidence”. A coincidence is a concept that is just not easily found in the Hebrew Bible mindset or language. Believing in “coincidences” would violate Genesis 8:22, called God’s law of “seedtime and harvest”. In this verse God says things will occur in the future, because of the seeds that were planted in the past.
The Hebrew word H3588 is the basis of most human events that occurred in the Old Testament. This word is often translated as “because”. This word defines a causal connection of what is being stated now in a verse to what was found previously in the context. For example, in Genesis 3:14 God speaking to the serpent said “Because you have done this thing, cursed are you….”. As you can see God vocalizes a caused serpent curse, because of the evil deception that was found in his previous actions. This is just confirmation of the cause-and-effect relationships of Biblical events.
Also, there is God’s law of repeated patterns revealed to us in Ecclesiastes 1:10. In this verse God asks, “Is there anything new, no it has already been in old time”. This verse simply teaches us God potentially designs past or future repeated patterns to occur at other times.
Please go read these concepts, and study them for yourself to confirm that they are a very important factor for understanding everything in the Bible. What will occur in the future in the book of Revelation are things that have occurred somewhere already in a different place and time with different participants. These concepts simply teach us, God can use past patterns knowing that they will reoccur in the future. Knowing this we can see how Satan can also use patterns to get them to reoccur for his potential advantage. Finally, humans can also even act the same as before and repeat things that have happened or will happen in the future. Perhaps you have heard the saying those that do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.
What is a coincidence? According to one online dictionary, the word coincidence, can mean a series of accidental events that appear to be planned. This is why some will explain away the book of Revelation events as just an accidental reoccurrence in the world’s current “crown” plan-demic. People who do things like this do not understand God or the study of probability.
The more accurate fulfillments of what was written by God to occur in the future, the less likely there are any coincidences. Today we will review, at least 26 matches of world events to verses found in Revelation that are potentially happening today. If only half of these are occurring, it is mathematically impossible that what is happening now is just a coincidence to what God said would happen in the tribulation. Therefore, we must conclude that what is happening today is a plan of someone to potentially copy what was written in the Bible for 2000 years.
So let us go through a list of some of these potential comparisons that some will try to convince us are just flukes.
WORD OF GOD /
WORLD EVENT COMPARISONS
We are not going to go through every found event comparison. We will only look at the most direct matches that appear to be happening today. Please read them over and study all of these for yourself. Read the verse references. Look up the Greek words and definitions. Study to show yourself approved; a workman that needs not to be ashamed before God (2 Timothy 2:15).
|1||Revelation 12:9 the Genesis 3:1 ancient serpent, is identified to be the devil, Satan and has grown into a Great Red Dragon.||There is only one current world nation identified with the Great Red Dragon symbol, guess who? It was the nation that released the deadly pathogen on the world in 2019.|
|2||Revelation 12:9 The ancient serpent revealed to be Satan and serpents have “two fangs” filled with poisonous deadly substances to paralyze and kill victims.||“Two jab” remedies were the normal first solutions for a promised life of normalcy and the relief from the fear of death.|
|3||Revelation 12:9 The serpent is defined to be the source of all global deception. This represents a heart filled with poisonous words that are spread to the world.||The world’s governments, media, corporations, & entertainment, working together to deceive the entire world into a fear driven message to accept an unknown solution.|
|4||Revelation 12:9 The dragon is defined as a “fabulous serpent” indicating a beast of vast increased ability to deceive||Satan needed to only deceive two people originally, but is now attempting to deceive nearly 7+ billion people with another message of lies.|
|5||Acts 28:5 Paul was bitten by a beast with two fangs full of poison in his hand to kill him, while placing sticks on a fire. This is the same Greek word as the “beast” empowered by the serpent in Revelation 13:7.||Majority of the world’s initial solution fang dosages were a two marked injection system. People today are offered a chip fang mark in their hands to confirm their participation in the two-fang mark.|
|6||Revelation 13:15 All that do not worship the serpent’s beast are separated from the marked people on the earth by intentional death/murder (Revelation 20:4).||Threats of separation and quarantined isolation for everyone not participating in the mandated worship of the fang marks.|
|7||Revelation 13:16 Every human (100%), rich or poor, weak or powerful, free or slave, is required to take the “mark” of the beast.||Tyrannical world leaders are now requiring every human (100%), the young or old, the sick or healthy, and even those immune, to take jabbed “mark” in their body with an unknown substance.|
|8||Revelation 13:16 Marks received in right hand and foreheads. Right hand symbolizes source of power and authority, and forehead the position of freewill and free thought reasoning. This symbolizes Satan’s ultimate desire for all human control.||Jezebel rulers are removing human rights to choose, and controlling the narrative to produce mind control. There are several researchers that say the injected serum to save us will affect the human mind and abilities to function in the future.|
|9||Revelation 13:16 The serpent empowered beast, demands a forced mark, and taking this mark causes eternal spiritual death in hell (Revelation 14:11)||Forced and mandated marks demanded by world governments, ruling powers, with a yet to be determined benefit or known negative impacts?|
|10||Revelation 13:17 Refusal to take mark, results in the loss of the ability to buy or sell||Refusal to take today’s crown marks, are resulting in loss of employment, travel, freedoms, etc.|
|11||Revelation 13:17 taking the mark results in the ability to buy and sell freely in the global economy.||Many nations issue passports after taking the “fang marks” allowing “some” promised freedoms of movement and ability to buy and sell|
|12||Revelation 13 There is no mention of any personal expenses for taking the mark of the beast in the Bible, implying the marks are given out for free to all that will cooperate to take them. This further implies the government rulers are covering all of the costs.||It is interesting to see how the governments are the ones that are paying the costs for development and distribution of the experimental pathogen jabs. This makes them free for every one that is cooperative. Another matching coincidence?|
|13||Revelation 6:2 a rider on a white horse conquering the world looking like the return of Christ in Revelation 19:11. This clearly indicates a very prevalent deception is taking place by a false savior.||Almost every world power system (government, business, news, etc) is coordinating together to push one massive devious plot to save every human. This is a false & exaggerated message of propaganda for an agenda.|
|14||Revelation 6:2 a crown is given to the world ruler and is used to conquer the world as a part of the combined system.||A corona (latin crown) was released from the Great Red Dragon nation (Rev 12:9) and it was used to rapidly conquer the entire world (2020-2021)|
|15||Revelation 6:2 – a bow in the hand of a world conqueror, represents a device from which an arrow/dart is released and “shot” to spread a potential (toxic) poison, which is designed and intended to produce death.||Over 5 million people have reportedly been murdered by the intentional release of the crown pathogen. The acceptance of taking the solution “fang mark” in the U.S. has reportedly killed at least 17,000 so far, but the true numbers are vastly under reported and silenced.|
|16||Revelation 6:2 The conquest of the world is performed by the combined partnership of the controlling government rider, and the powerful horse instrument of war that is identified by them wearing a “white coat”.||Today, the powerful white coated Big-Pharma industry (that created the crown pathogen), has made billions of dollars from their “fang marks” solutions that are being forced upon all people by the powerful controlling government(s).|
|17||Revelation 6:2 The horse’s white color can present a perception of a peaceful world conquest, utilizing potentially unseen & unconventional weapons.||It should be very clear that the pathogen is a modern-day biological weapon, designed to create massive fear for the people’s cooperative willingness to take the forced free marks.|
|18||Revelation 6:2 The horse’s white coat, can also be called the horse’s “hide”. Combine this with the missing arrows would imply there is a vast potential for a hidden or deceptive purpose to what is happening in this world conquest.||Today we are experiencing a new version of an older pathogen. The solutions being spread to counter this global bio-attack is very new, unknown, has never been tried on human subjects. Because it is being forced upon every living human, it shows there is a massive hidden reason for its purpose.|
|19||Revelation 6:2 the rider has a bow in his hand, and is given a crown for his forehead. Both symbols confirm a Rev 13:16 conquest involving human mind control and loss of the ability for people to think or reason for themselves||There are hidden substances that are given in the fang mark injections called nano-technologies and graphene oxides which are very harmful toxins. Nano particles are designed for mind control. The GO is designed to kill everyone slowly. Go do the research for yourself.|
|20||Revelation 9:12 Scorpion like creatures released to torment humans with single stings in their tails.||White coat industry creates repeated booster stinger marks for each new version of the crown disease. Many nations are up to 4 marks, without any end in sight.|
|21||Revelation 9:18 1/3 of the world’s population is said to be murdered by the serpent’s plan||5+ million have been murdered so far by the crown disease and an unknown hidden number of people have died from the fang marks so far.|
|22||Revelation 9:20 God says there will be many people killed by a global plague||The crown pathogen was released by the Great Red Dragon nation, and represents a designed plan for a global conquest|
|23||Revelation 9:20 Those that have not been killed by the plague, do not repent for the “works of their hands” done in their occupational industry to cause it to occur||The white coated industry is furiously at work to rush to market an unproven, untested, solution product with unknown ingredients and unknown side effects and hidden consequences.|
|24||Revelation 9:21 those that are involved in the global holocaust do not repent of their “murders”||Globally over 5+ million have been murdered by the crown disease and the fang marks so far|
|25||Revelation 9:20 Those guilty of the worldwide murders also do not repent for their committed massive “thefts”||Billions of dollars have been funneled into the White Coat Industry profiting a few rich|
|26||Revelation 9:21 The committed global murderers are connected with the witchcraft of humans, which is the Greek word “pharmakeia” that we get pharmacies, pharmaceuticals, and pharmacists from, and these are defined as the acts of distributing poisonous (toxins).||This is the obvious climax to the clues. It is God’s deliberate mention of the white coated industry that needs to be watched very closely.|
Here we can read through a quick overview of at least 26 eerie “coincidences?”, found spread out in primarily the book of Revelation. These are not every parallel from Revelation to what is potentially happening in our world today. But it is amazing to see how all of these “coincidences?”, could have appeared in today’s false prophet news, if they chose to be honest.
It is interesting to learn, and know the layout of the book of Revelation. Many believe the book of Revelation is in complete chronological order. This would mean the current chapter’s events follow in sequence, after the events that were described before in the previous chapter’s events. But there is NO WAY this approach to interpretation can be understood to be completely true.
For example, chapter 11 describes events that take place in a time period of 42 months (Revelation 11:3), chapter 12 also describes a time period of events that occur in 42 months (Revelation 12:6). In fact, chapter 13 also describes events that are occurring in a time period of 42 months (Revelation 13:5). Adding these together we would get ten and a half years of the tribulation just in these 3 chapters and this would not include the other 19 chapters. Uh oh? That would be a major problem, because we should know the entire chapters from 4 to 18, takes place in a total of one week of years, called Daniel’s 70th week.
This knowledge simply teaches, there are significant overlaps in certain chapters occurring. This would be exactly like the first two chapters in the book of Genesis. Chapter 1 of Genesis was God’s world creation overview, and chapter two is just the specific end of the 6th day of man’s creation detailed account. This repeated pattern is definitely what is occurring in the book of Revelation.
For example, chapter 4 of Revelation, begins with the rapture, and initiates the events of the 7-year tribulation. Chapters 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10, appear to be sequential or chronological overviews of some of the events happening in both the spiritual realm, and the natural realms simultaneously. We know this by understanding there are 7 seals being opened in heaven in sequence, followed by 7 trumpets that are blown in heaven also in sequential order. Each heavenly event initiates events that occur on the earth.
This would imply to us, that chapters 4 through 10 occur within a potential 42-month time frame. But in chapters, 11, and 12, these appear to be specific details of certain specific places, people, and events, that also occur during the same 42-month events. Many good Bible teachers, call chapters like 11, and 12 parenthetical chapters.
Please just consider the possibilities of God writing a book using this format. And remember that we can find this technique found in the book of Genesis as a valid pattern for possible future books and chapters. If we can conclude this is at least possible, this may help allow our spiritual eyes, to see how many of these Revelation overlaps may correctly fit together. Let us start with Revelation 12, first.
If the church is caught up to heaven in Revelation 4:1 as believed by many thorough, and serious Bible teachers, Revelation 12:1 begins with a wonder “woman”, suddenly “appearing” in heaven. These two verses would certainly match together, to confirm the event of 4:1 as a type of rapture, that is potentially connecting with the event described in 12:1 of a spiritual woman suddenly appearing in heaven. If you can see it, great!
If you do not understand that the church is mentioned in the first 3 chapters and never again by the name “church” after Revelation 3, this should be your first clue. The omission of the name “church” (G1577, eklesia), from chapters 4 through 22, implies the formal organization of the body and bride of Christ upon the earth, has departed to be with Christ in the spirit realm. It is also very important to know that the church in Revelation 3:10 is promised to be kept from the adversities that will take place upon the people dwelling upon the earth. This clearly says at least some of the church will be gone during the tribulation.
Then if you don’t know the church is described to be a woman, a bride and wife, you should read verses like Matthew 9:15, Ephesians 5:31-32, and 2 Corinthians 11:2, just to list a few. It is very important to go and study these subjects. There are other lesson series that will help you learn these truths on this website, for example:
- Understanding Bible Covenants
- Revealing the Bride of Christ
- The True Identity of the Woman in Revelation 12
- Is the Rapture taught in the Bible?
Now look down to the end of chapter 12, where we find people that have either become Christ followers, or were not ready for the catching away, and were left on the earth during the tribulation. We can clearly read in Revelation 12:17, where the dragon is extremely wroth with the woman after being thrown down to the earth. He then makes war against her remaining remnant on the earth. Therefore, in this chapter 12, we first have the woman (the church), found in heaven, simultaneously with the remnant of the church on the earth. We know this woman is the church because these people keep God’s commandments, and have the testimony of Christ Jesus in verse 12:17. Let us please, not get distracted with the rest of the information in this chapter for this study.
Now review chapter 11 quickly, to see what the main subject found is? This chapter has to occur suddenly after the church disappears from the earth. We conclude this because, God brings down from heaven, 2 witnesses to preach and prophesy to the world from Jerusalem, for 42 months. Wow this just fits so well with the fact that the church has to have been taken out of the world and the preaching of the Gospel to the nations has suddenly ceased. God would logically send two witnesses, since He is still interested in saving all people from hell. This would confirm how the true saints, pastors, evangelists, missionaries, and the apostolic church members, were previously caught up to heaven. Do you see how this is fitting together, so well?
Now, consider some potential overlaps with the first verse in Revelation chapter 13, that describes in detail an event that may also fit to work together in the same overlapping timeframe. After the church is caught up into heaven, God reveals to us in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, how the “man of sin” will come to the earth to be revealed. Then, go and read Revelation 13:1. We have a “beast” which we found was a type of “serpent” who represents the origin of sin on the earth. This beast rises out of the sea. A sea is a symbolic representation for a mass of many people.
So, we have a sudden world ruler system powered by the serpent and/or the dragon, that has come upon the world seen, to rule it all. That is very interesting since this may correspond with the conquering rider, we can find in Revelation 6:2. God appears to be informing us that the mark of the beast may be a part of this world conquest for wielding power to conquer, and control all of the people in the world. This could possibly match the things that are occurring in Revelation 6:2, very well. Remember we saw a government who arose to sit upon a white coated horse of war. This government was given a “corona” / “crown” and had a “toxin” in his hand that will be used for his peaceful but deceptive, hidden weapon, global conquest.
Searching Revelation 13, there is no mention of any visible weapons being used to force people into taking the mark of the beast. Therefore, how are the people being threatened with death to cause them to want to take this mark of the beast? The answer is found in Revelation 13:5, the beast is given a mouth that is able to speak great things. This indicates there is great deception taking place, and the silencing of any opposing voices. That sounds a lot like the image we can read about in Revelation 6:2 of the white horse deceiving rider.
Another interesting point is found in Revelation 13:9. This verse says “Let him that has ears, hear”. This phrase occurs 7 times in Revelation chapters 2 and 3. But in these verses God says “let those that have ears, hear what the Spirit says to the churches”. This appears to be another clue to indicate the church should be gone when all of this is occurring, since the words “says to the churches” are omitted.
It is very interesting how in the world today, that people who are unmarked are being said to be the source of all death and we are told they will all die very soon. How can the healthy be the problem for what is being spread, simply because they have not been marked? This very clearly teaches us there is a deceptive hidden agenda for forcing people to take the mark.
This Bible lesson was just a quick list of a few possibilities, for looking at the book of Revelation. No one is claiming we are living through this Revelation time in 2021. But it should show us how all of these prophesied real events could be a parallel pattern to what the serpent is prematurely causing to happen to us now. These parallels could be called a pre-cursor type of dress rehearsal for the real coming big events. Or the serpent could be trying to redirect us away from God, like he did to the church in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2. In this example, there was a false message that was being spread by the serpent to the church that the day of the LORD, had already passed. Paul quickly refutes this false message in his letter. But this same pattern has been reinitiated in many churches today, where they are claiming we are living in the tribulation right now.
This admittedly was a very controversial subject to address from the Bible and the book of Revelation. Many asleep Christians will reject it as being completely not true. Others may see parts of it has happening but still trust their rulers to help save them. Hopefully, most Christians are awakening to discern the hidden spiritual motivations for what is happening to them.
For the people that are becoming awake, they can begin to see how there must be very evil spirits behind all of what is happening in the world. Who is causing the massive fears? More Christians should begin to ask these questions of God to give them more discernment. If all of this coordinated effort is God conducting His heavenly work of salvation, no one should resist it. But if God is not committing these evils, it must be orchestrated for the serpent’s dark agenda. Let us ask some questions:
- Is God a God of forced salvations?
- Is God a God of fear-based salvations?
The answers to both of these essential questions are NO. Therefore, nothing that is happening to produce death or fear in the world, can be of, or from God. God is not producing any massive fear. God is not forcing people to get saved from natural or spiritual death.
Thank you for reading this lesson. If you have any questions or comments, you are free to leave it in a comment. Always remember God loves you so very much. It is His immense goodness that will lead people to repentance. It will never be a message of force or fear that will save you. Jesus Christ, is the King of kings, and the Lord of lords and He is coming very soon.
***Please do not allow anything written here to produce fear in you. If you have taken the marks that were given out freely, or forced upon you, they will NOT send you to hell. But please understand that many believe they are designed to send you to heaven sooner than God wanted you to show up.
Thank you for your prayers and if you would like us to join you in agreeing with your prayers, please let us know. God Bless you all very much.
(Ver 1.0) This is Part 5 on the essential right NOW warning message series of Bible lessons from the LORD. We have been going through a series of Bible prophecy lessons learning from the patterns given of enemy “serpent” witchcraft tactics. Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 2:11, we should not be ignorant of Satan’s devices (schemes), yet many people are. In this verse God through Paul, says the ignorance of Christians gives Satan the advantage over them. This teaches us that whatever we don’t know, potentially allows Satan to deceive even the elect (Matthew 24:24). How many Christians have you seen that have become deceived by what is happening in the world today?
These studies have been mostly revealed, from the perspective of the book of Revelation. Today’s lesson will potentially be the climatic conclusion of the series. We will be focused on God’s definition of witchcraft and how God says this evil will affect people in the last of these last days. If you have not read this series from the beginning, it is highly recommended that you go back and start with “Part 1”.
It is important to note, that this lesson series, is not designed or intended to cause division or contention. But we are living in a time of tremendous polarization. It is like a line has been drawn in the sand by God, and people are being given the choice, do you want to stand with God in the Kingdom of Light, or do you want to choose the devil and stand with the kingdom of darkness? The middle ground fence balancers, are now being forced to make a choice. These two kingdom choices are becoming so very clear today. The darkness is becoming increasingly darker, and the Kingdom of God is increasing in brightness, daily.
We have been learning about a spiritual enemy who was originally identified as “Lucifer” (Isaiah 14:12), who was one of, if not the highest-ranking created angels in heaven. It is highly recommended that you read Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28, because these two chapters contain key information about the fall of this perfect created spiritual being.
God reveals to us in Genesis, about this fallen angel, as a symbolic “serpent”, that entered the garden of Eden, to tempt, and deceive God’s newly created man and woman on the earth (Genesis 3:1). We are informed this “serpent” was actually the adversary spiritual being we read about in Isaiah and Ezekiel, that was now identified, and named as “Satan”, and “the devil” in Revelation 12:9.
We have already read key verses from Genesis 3:1, and Revelation chapters 1, 6, 12, 13 and 19. In the last lesson we were focused upon a key verse we discovered contained a lot of hidden parallels to what we have been going through in the last 2+ years. A lot of people will try to say that these are just coincidental biased interpretations. But how well do they match? How many matches are enough to convince anyone to see what God wrote, and not us?
You should have seen in Revelation 6:2, an unknown and unnamed rider that is controlling a “white coated” horse having only a bow and a crown (Latin corona). These symbols, logically represent a type of king, prince or government ruler, that desires to deceive people into believing he is the coming Christ found returning to the earth in Revelation 19.
These symbols further imply that he is a ruler of a kingdom utilizing a peaceful conquest strategy, without the normal weapons of war. But we are taught in the verse that he remains committed upon conquering the world without violence through implied deception. This type of conquest appears to indicate a weaponry using a very unconventional type that could possibly make the rider look like a hero. This method of conquest could possibly win the hearts of the people for them to want to raise him to power as a replacement type of Christ. Clearly this would mean the presence of great deception taking place and probably great fear of some unseen motivation that causes a desire for an evil overseer.
Today we will be moving to chapter 9 of Revelation, because this also has a great number of parallels to what we have, and are still experiencing today. Let us begin to study what the Holy Spirit wants to teach us today.
A NEW PATTERN OF SCORPION POISON
We will now go and focus on some very new critical verses, and words of warning given to humans from God in the Bible. These words will help us to support what has been given to us so far from the Holy Spirit. Today, we will be led to read verses written in Revelation chapter 9. We are about to find a lot of information, that should be appearing in our newspapers and online news feeds. But for the evil reason of deception this information is being silenced by the Jezebel evil ruling system, and the false prophets.
We will only be going to go through selected verses found in the book of Revelation chapter 9, due to reader time constraints. We are NOT attempting to do an in-depth or comprehensive study of all of the information. We are primarily looking for parallel concepts that show what we may be experiencing now. These will all be possible repeatable patterns of current serpent attacks. We will start with verse 3:
Rev 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
Just like the dragon, and the serpent in Revelation 12 is not a literal physical dragon or serpent, the mention of locusts and scorpions are also not to be taken literally. We can determine this by where they came from. In the previous two verses, we find these symbols being released by unlocking them from the bottomless pit. This clearly indicates that they were spiritual beings that were confined to be released here to do an extraordinary, and special type of evil. Even though these symbols are not natural creatures, their natural features and qualities of each creature can reveal hidden unseen qualities of how the spiritual beings they represent are operating on the earth.
For example, a locust can be a consuming creature, eating up everything that comes across their path. These creatures are also swarming entities. This means they overwhelm the target of attack with so many of them they are practically unstoppable. But these are very special types of locusts because they are described to have the authority of a scorpion. Most know what a scorpion is in the natural.
But for those that do not know or understand what a scorpion is, we will give a quick overview. A scorpion is a type of insect with 8 legs, two front grabbing pinchers, and a long tail containing a poison injector stinger. Clearly this an ominous type of evil creature, that is being released upon the earth during these last days.
Do you remember in the last lesson the comparison between a serpent fang injection system, being two fangs causing two injections? Now in comparison a scorpion while being a similar poison injector system, is limited to only a single injector at a time. But still the delivery of a toxic mixture of poison that affects the nervous systems is identical. This if very interesting in the light of what we have been experiencing with our two-injection serpent mark system, that is followed up by one or more single booster marks. This is just an interesting coincidence to read about in the Bible. Whether it is happening now as a forerunner to the tribulation real event, you will need to decide for yourself. But wait to read the entire lesson before you make any rushed judgment.
Please just take a serious look, that this is at least the third time we have encountered the strongly implied usage of “poison” by GOD’s word choice selections. We have seen a “poisonous serpent”, and another greater “dragon fiery serpent” (Revelation 12:4), and both are related to have a poisonous 2 fang system in their mouth. Then we saw a rider in Revelation 6, on a white coated horse carrying a “toxon” that we get our words “toxin” and “toxic” from. This word choice is implying a poison tipped arrow system would be shot into the rider’s victims. Now we are observing a new type of poison injection system here in Revelation 9, that uses the symbol of “scorpions” and their tails.
This subject of poisonous injections, appears to be a very significant reoccurring theme found in the book of Revelation, and we are about to see the ultimate clue to how this poison delivery plan is attempting to be spread throughout the world as we continue.
INTRODUCTION TO POISON IN WITCHCRAFT
Let us please continue our Bible study on Serpent poison and witchcraft, by reading Revelation 9:20, and pay close attention to the God selected words and the main points, that are being emphasized with underlines.
Revelation 9:20 – And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
This verse, could be taken from today’s lead stories, and headline news, if the false prophets of the world were honest, and sincere enough to report on them. We notice first, God mentioning that there are people in the world that have not been killed by a “plague”. What is a plague? One dictionary defines this word as the spread of a “virulent infectious disease”. That certainly applies to what we have been experiencing.
Recently, there was a crown bio-weapon released from a red dragon worshipping nation, that was spread to the entire globe. This has been labeled by the false prophets to be a natural occurring “pandemic”. A pandemic is defined as a virulent epidemic, that crosses many national boundaries. This just so happens, to be an amazing example of an ingenious modern day evil strategy for a peaceful world conquest. This type of warfare can be easily won without firing one visible weapon. This type of warfare only needs a pathogen that is 120 nm in size. This cannot be observed with the natural human eye. Remember we learned about all of this type of technique with the rider of the white coated horse found in Revelation 6:2.
But, according to Strong’s definition a plague is not the only explanation of this Greek word. This word’s definition could also apply to what people have been taking, to try to cure the spread of a deadly plague like disease. This Greek word G4127 also means “a stroke”. What is a stroke? This word stroke is defined as “an act of striking the human skin with an instrument, or a weapon to potentially cause pain, bruising, and bleeding”. Certainly, this could describe a serpent fang or scorpion tail injection, could it not? This could be applied to be a way of potentially describing a person, that has taken several metal jabs in their arm with a sharp hollow injector, called a hypodermic needle.
Therefore, this Greek word G4127, can be 1) applied to be figuratively describing something as a widespread “calamity” as a possible virulent plague, or 2) equally as well as the application of a manmade instrument to produce a human pain using a stroked lacerations for the punctured release or access to human blood. It is used both of these ways in the New Testament. The disciples were beaten and wounded with stripes (weapon strokes) in the book of Acts (Acts 16:23-33), and plagues are used in the book of Revelation (Revelation 11:6, Revelation 16). This would appear to indicate that this Greek word, could have dual application and meaning to both types of plans that could cause human deaths in this chapter. Just read and study the whole chapter, and if you see it great, if you don’t, no worries. No one here, is forcing anyone to believe anything.
However, if you choose to view this information in Revelation, we must admit there is certainly something that will cause a major “calamity” in order for it to cause 1/3 of the world’s population to perish (Revelation 9:13). Any “disastrous event of this magnitude type would be marked to be clearly intentional for genocide. Did you know there are a lot of globalist people promoting a global warming narrative, that have called for a major population reduction? Isn’t that just another interesting coincidence? By releasing a cleverly designed bio-weapon, this would facilitate both the reduction in population and world conquest, simultaneously. Please, take another look at the beginning of this verse:
Revelation 9:20 – And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, …
Notice what verse 20 says next. “None” of those that have survived this massive “plague” of death, would repent for the “works of their hands”. God says these spiritual inspired evils are coming from the “works” of human hands. This Greek word G2041 that was translated as ‘works”, can be defined as a “job in a human occupational field”. Certainly, the white coated medical field and drug industry, would qualify to fit what God is speaking of. No one is making the claim everyone in this field is the devil, no that would be stupid if we thought that way. And we all should believe that there are many other people in other occupational fields, that could have jobs that also qualify to be cooperating with the evil agenda. However, please just, analyze the truths given to us by God’s Word and make your own personal determinations. To at least some there should be a seen connection to the white coated horse industry.
What type of occupational works do these people need to repent for? A need to repent implies that these surviving people are the ones that are working these evils. However, instead of repenting they choose to worship devils and idols of gold and silver, etc. Almost no one today, worships literal idols. No, these idols are symbolic modern-day items, like homes, possessions, powers, fortunes, and fame. However, this could be a strong potential reference and Bible description, of some people in the white coat industry. Do you remember what the Bible says in Mark? Let us stop and read a small part to refresh our memory:
Mark 5:25 – And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
Mark 5:26 – And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
Here God selects one woman’s medical condition to teach us what happens to a lot of people. Notice this woman has a medical condition with a blood issue. There are a lot of medical conditions and issues, that disturb or attack the human blood, and the “crown” disease, and its fang solution both work through the blood. Verse 26 informs us this woman suffered a lot of different things, like treatments, and even possible medicine potions that were given to her by physicians. Finally, notice this woman had to spend every bit of money she had to receive this painful treatment. Notice even though none of the things the physicians did to help the woman worked, they gladly took her money. Now go back and compare this information to what we just read in Revelation 9:20.
Whoever, God is speaking of in Revelation 9, they refuse to repent for the work they are doing to, or for someone, and obtaining and worshiping objects of wealth and possessions seems to be their god? This could describe a lot of people, but use the other clues that are given to us to figure out what can narrow the possibilities. I think we need to go to verse 21 next to learn what else these people do not repent for doing.
Revelation 9:21 – Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
In this verse, God is speaking of the same living people on the earth that are being used by the serpent Satan, to carry out his plan of evil depopulation and the control of humanity. We know already that in this chapter, 1/3 of the total world’s population are being killed through this phase of the evil plan. Using current (2021) population numbers, there are nearly 8 billion people living on the earth. This would indicate at least 2.5 billion people will be killed during these coming timed events. That qualifies as massive depopulation.
Now pay close attention to the next statement concerning the fruit of their works that are not being repented for. The very first word is “murders”. This Greek word G5408 literally means a “slaughter”. This is why the word “genocide” should rise up in our spirits. What happened in the 1940’s to the Jewish population in Europe and Asia?
A lot of our national and world history is being removed from children’s textbooks in classrooms. This world conquest event was a planned attempt by one man possessed by the serpent, to become the world’s ruler. He did this at first by coming to power in only one nation peacefully portraying himself to be like a savior. He used the same techniques that we can observe that are happening today. There was the immediate taking control of the national media and the silencing of every opposing voice of opposition to portray only one acceptable version of truth.
This very nefarious and evil man was named Adolf Hitler, and he rose to power in Germany. But soon he tried to exterminate every Jew off of the face of the planet. He implemented a “mark” system of population identification. They were slaughtered, shot, burned, drowned, gassed, and had medical experimental surgeries done to them without consent or anesthesia, and on and on we could go. There appears to be a lot of matching patterns found in this information that are being repeated now, and in the book of Revelation.
He also created a vast and powerful army that went to conquer nation after nation. Millions of people died during this time of history. But Adolf Hitler did not commit these murders by himself. He had a lot of people cooperating, tolerating, and committing these murders for him. It appears that God says this will be repeated in the coming tribulation also. But in actuality Satan could be trying to get it to reoccur and happen now.
We will briefly skip to the last word in the verse translated as “thefts”. This Greek word means to steal or take from someone something that is not rightfully or legally earned. We know from reading John 10:10, that Jesus declared; “the thief (Satan) only came to steal, kill and destroy”, and this describes the key strategic results of evil. Could this possibly be related to our verses in Mark 5, where the woman with the issue of blood gave all of her money to physicians?
Can you see how this woman in Mark 5, was potentially driven by fear to do what she did for 12 years? Can you potentially see how people could use their “plan-demic” to keep us in bondage to fear for the next 12 years? Can you potentially see how a lot of physicians, might become motivated to only help her knowing they have no cure, to only take her money? Again, not every Physician is this way. We all know the disciple Luke, who wrote the book of Luke and Acts, was a physician. So, if you are working in this profession and are not like those that do things to get rich for money, Praise the Lord. Let us now focus our attention on the pivotal phrase that needs our full attention.
MODERN SORCERER WITCHCRAFTS
Revelation 9:21 – Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
We have arrived at the most important clue in this entire Bible discussion and study. Our climatic word involves the revelation of our key subject of witchcraft. God says in verse 21 of Revelation 9, no one repented for any of their “sorceries”. What are “sorceries”? It is definitely NOT what you think, unless you already have studied this Greek word in your Bible. If Harry Potter is only what you think of when you see this word, you would be very wrong.
The Greek word translated as “sorceries” is G5331. This Greek word is transliterated as “pharmakeia”. This is one of the main Greek words that we get our English words: 1) Pharmacy, 2) Pharmacist, 3) Pharmacology, and 4) Pharmaceutical, from. Wow, this is the most major Bible clue we have come across in this study, and it helps us greatly narrow what is happening in many verses found in the book of Revelation. It is also an amazing parallel to the white coated horse being used by the rider to spread a deadly toxin to conquer the world.
The Strong’s concordance defines this word G5331 as “medication”, and mentions the “pharmacy” as the supplier source. The Thayer Bible dictionary defines this word as “the use or administering of a drug”. Thayer also defines this word to potentially represent, “poisoning” someone with a substance. It appears from this information that medicine can be used for either good or evil, depending upon the motivations of the one that is supplying it, or the one requesting it for a supply of some need or desire. But we must be led by the context of this word’s usage. It is being used and selected by God when describing people who refuse to repent for their thefts and murders during a plague event, containing global massive deaths. I pray eyes are opening, minds are understanding, and spirits are discerning the differences between good and evil applications and intentions for drugs. No legitimate usage of a good medicine, requires a mandate to force someone to take it. Ask yourself why is this occurring? Think by not taking the mandated “fang” marks, the only person they are hurting, is themselves, unless this mark means and does something else, that we are NOT being informed of?
Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
The Greek G5331 word, comes from G5332 transliterated as “pharmakeus”, and this word means a “drug”, as in a “spell giving potion”. This word also is applied to people that administer these magic potions called “pharmacists”, with extensions of implications to also be stretched to be called “sorcerers”, or “magician”. It is only used by the Holy Spirit in the above Revelation 21:8 verse. This verse very clearly states people who are participating in this group of like evil, will spend eternity in hell.
Both Greek words carry the implication to be the work of “magic” by “magicians”, called “pharmacists”. But these trained white coated individuals are only the distributors. Therefore, by extension we can apply these concepts to the modern people that are actually creating, and manufacturing these potions in mass for the mandated mark distribution. All of these white coated workers are casting potential spells upon people, by giving them human created treatments for some potential cure, or relief purposes, and in doing so, are obtaining a lot of money for their work. This is sounding more and more like the woman with the issue of blood in Mark.
It is also very noteworthy to see that the Greek word G5332, carries the meaning of a “poisoner”. If that does not match what a natural “serpent” does, I do not know how to convince anyone better. We have now increased our number of references to serpent “poisonous toxins” by one more, and there are potentially others that we will not cover in this lesson. But this one is major and real, and it has serious application to what we are living through right now.
Ok, these are some very hard and challenging clues to accept. The white coated industry field has potentially done a lot of great things for people in recent history. But like anything else good, when placed in the wrong hands, with the wrong motives, and wrong desires, it can easily be turned to do something very evil, so quickly. The white coated workers, have been viewed as a positive modern accomplishment, by the majority of humans. This trust is why so many humans are rushing to be given an untested and unproven, serpent fang injection into their arms. After all, all of us are being told that it is totally safe. We are being brainwashed to believe that we are only doing what is best to save everyone else around us? Right? If we cared about others, we would all participate blindly in full confidence they were all smarter than we are.
However, anything that comes from an end-time government does not appear to be doing anything good for their people, according to the Bible. Can you find Bible verses in Revelation or other places that teaches any government in the last days is working to save you? Here is the main challenge. Some man-made medicines do help some people if they are used perfectly. But no one knows of any man-made drug that has no potential side-effects. Every prescription or non-prescription drug has a warning label of potential deadly side effects, including death from an overdose. This should be obvious why the Bible says they are all potential poisons.
There are a lot of possible physical problems, caused because of evil attacks of intentional or unintentional drug usage, that cause chemical imbalances in the human blood, organs, and tissues. What we learn from drug usage, and misuses, is that there can be the potential for a drug to be designed to do someone evil. The worst-case scenario, would be to cause intentional death to occur to someone. Or a lesser evil case result, would be to get someone to be easily under the power, control, or authority of another to make them like a willing slave or servant.
We could literally talk for days about the positive and negative uses for drugs. But the motivation for creating every legitimate, and major drug, from a creator and manufacturer, appears to have become, a “greed” for money. We learn this fact, that any drug that is deemed useful to help people, after the patent has expired, it then becomes legal to be manufactured by generic medicine producing companies. Suddenly, all of these companies greatly reduce the cost for the drug because of the competition between the companies. Suddenly these types of drugs are not even considered as a solution for saving lives for a crisis situation. No, the only solutions are new patentable drugs that can make a company a lot of money.
Could it be this is why God said these people in Revelation 9, needed to repent for their idol worship of gold and silver objects? This at least implies the application of “greed” being a major factor for the plagues that occur even today. If big-pharma companies, did not make billions of dollars, would there have ever been a requirement to force people to be inoculated? It is hopefully becoming obvious how this information is coming to life to describe what is happening in our world right now.
I do not know of any of these white coated companies that are labels as a “non-profit” corporation. That makes them automatically in it for the “profit” of money. This is exactly why there are so “few” disease cures. If a disease is completely cured, there is no longer any future income to be made. Even the illegal drug makers, sell their products to make a lot of money. The more addicting a product is, the more profit they are bringing in.
We will conclude this lesson series with a reminder. Satan is a master deceiver. He has been deceiving angels and people, exponentially longer than you have been alive. If you believe you can never be deceived by him or anyone being used by him, you simply prove you are already deceived. There are just too many words of God written to people and Christians to warn us of this possibility of becoming deceived.
In these last days, there is such a massive global level of deception occurring. It has been planned and coordinated in the dark spirit realm. There is no way that people are clever enough to have perpetrated this level of coordinated global evil without dark spirit influence. It has crossed national boundaries, ethnic boundaries, racial boundaries, media and political party boundaries, even financial corporate giant boundaries and technology company boundaries.
Do you believe evil people are smarter than God? That should be an obvious answer of NO! Do you believe Satan, is smarter than God? That answers should also be an obvious NO! But why have these less intelligent beings, now appear to have defeated God’s people on the earth? That is what a lot of people believe based upon the current circumstances.
Is God a Liar? Is His Word True? These also better be obvious questions to answer correctly for you. God is not a liar. God’s Word is Absolutely True. Ok, let us ask some tougher questions. Does God’s Church bride lose to Satan? Is the Church of the Living God, defeated and go through the tribulation? This is where people with faith will stand strong, despite the circumstances and take their authority to end this global conquest plan. You are either with God, or you are fighting against Him. Which one is it? Join the battle to submit to God’s Lordship, and begin to resist the devil with the rest of us. Greater is He that is in US, than he that is in the world!
Be a strong believer, in victory and shun defeat. Resist the serpent agenda. Don’t cooperate with the serpent. Pray continually and praise God even more for His Powerful ability that can be trusted. Faith filled prayers, worship and praise should fill your homes, automobiles, work places, cities and nations.
Where will you place your faith? Will you trust the false prophet narrative? Will you trust the Jezebel ruling government leaders? Will you place your trust in the white coat horse industry to be your savior? Who is really being transparent with you? Who can you really trust? Will you base your faith on God and His WORD? Will you trust in Him, or take a fang mark? Will you trust your job for your supply, or your God? IT IS TIME TO CHOOSE A SIDE AND MAKE A STAND!
It is best to end with good news after hearing about all of the potential negative end time works of the enemy serpent. Christians have been given authority over the serpent and his scorpions, according to Luke 10:19. However, this delegated authority does not guarantee our safety or our victory over him. But it will work for us, if we believe it, and exercise it as a reigning king on the earth (Romans 5:17). According to Ephesians 6:12, we are not fighting against the people being used by the serpent to do his evil. It is always the spirits that influence and possess these people that we are in an unseen battle with. Please join in unity with all of the body of Christ, and come against these unseen spiritual workers of the world. Bind them according to Matthew 18:18 and stop their takeover of the world. In Romans 16:20 God prophesied He would bruise the serpent under our feet before we are raptured. Believe this is happening now!
Finally, if you are a Christian working in the White Coated industry, please accept our thanks and encouragement for your heart to help people live. This is what is needed today. It is an extreme blessing to go to someone that loves to be a blessing to people, and that will pray for us, as well as to help people get well. Thank you again for being led by the Spirit of God to make wise bold right choices to save lives.
If you are a worker in the Jezebel government and you know Jesus, it is time to take a stand for Him. Pray for those in authority over you and ask God to remove everyone that is not willing to repent and be saved. The same is true for the Jezebel false prophet propaganda networks. Pray for these people to have a laborer of God to be sent across their paths to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. If you are a Christians working with them, ask God to use you to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God’s end time harvest is taking place before He comes to take the church away. Time is becoming very short. Be led by the Spirit of God in every moment of the time we have left.
Thank you for taking the time to read and study the Bible with us. We love you all very much. Be blessed to be a blessing. Share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, with the world. If you do not know Jesus Christ as your personal LORD and Savior, now is the time to ask Him. There is a link that follows to help you make that choice in believing faith. God bless each and everyone. If you have a question, comment, or prayer request, please feel free to leave it in a comment, and as the LORD, leads us we will do our best to acknowledge it. Thank you again for your prayers and we will pray for you.
If you have not read the summary overview of the series, you may like to continue to “Part 6” now.
(Ver 1.1) This is now “Part 4” in one of the most demonically hated Bible study series ever published. If you have never seen any personal demon attacks, you have probably not done much to share the Gospel and Truth of Jesus Christ to the world. Satan has definitely manifested in so many new unexpected ways in the past few years, that it makes some wonder, is this the tribulation already? But since many believe like us, that the rapture occurs prior to the beginning of the tribulation, we should rather conclude that this is just Satan knowing his time is very short, and bringing a surprise attack against the body of Christ. But we will find that what is happening today was foretold to us in God’s Word.
We have been going through information found in the book of Revelation concerning a spiritual enemy identified by God as the “ancient serpent” in Revelation 12:9. This symbolic trespassing ancient serpent, was originally a spiritual being named Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12). He has apparently now grown into the “great dragon” in these last of the last days. We learn of this significant spiritual growth from Strong’s definition of a “dragon” (G1404), as being a “fabulous serpent”. We then see how God combined this word Greek word “drakon” (G1404) with the Greek word “megas” (G3174), that was translated as “great”. If you understand computer terms, you know a megabyte is 1 million bytes. This is how God is describing the original serpent in the garden of Eden’s growth. This would reveal that Satan has increased in ability to deceive the world significantly. If you have not read this Bible lesson series from the beginning, it is highly recommended that you go and begin with “PART 1”.
One comment that was received about the last lesson, needs to be addressed for everyone. The comment implied that the “mark of the beast” described in Revelation 13, would need to be a more obvious choice before anyone would be willingly participating in receiving it. Unfortunately, we do not find that concept in the Bible. Take for example, the consequences of natural and spiritual death for every human, in Genesis 3? The serpent never mentioned any of this to Eve. Instead, he presented a false diversionary narrative of humans becoming more like God. There are numerous examples exactly like this throughout the Bible.
Please understand, the devil knows the Bible probably better than you do. He has had many more years to read and study it to see his future. This is what scares him so much. If he can read about the mark of the beast in Revelation 13, and see what God foretold, he is going to use that information to try to trick you. If you are only looking for a very obvious “666” tattoo on your right hand or on your forehead, he is not going to use that on purpose. No, Satan is crafting new modern ways of accomplishing the same end results. These technologies are the only way, he will be able to try to control over 7 billion people to cause them not to be able to work, buy, or sell. This is exactly why this Bible study series is showing some new hidden Bible ways of ultimate modern deception.
No, the current plan-demic of evil, is one of the most masterful deceptions, that demonstrates the increased level of the serpent’s ability to deceive everyone on the planet simultaneously. Instead of fooling just two humans to participate in the serpent’s deception in Genesis 3, he must now get over seven billion people to want and desire to participate in his purpose to steal, kill and destroy us (John 10:10). Again, this is much easier when it is done with a false narrative of a created crisis, and the unfillable promises hiding disguised evils in the mandated solutions. The serpent is using the promises of life, safety, security, freedom, health, normalcy, and other words of deception to inspire people to want to participate with a great passion and desire. Too many people want their freedom from fear, when this can only come through believing in the Word of God. Do you know how to say this more clearly?
If you are trusting all of your doctors, physicians, hospitals to do what is right and best for you, you are deceived already. If you are trusting everyone in the government to do what is best for you, you are extremely deceived. If you are trusting even your church ministers, teachers and pastors to tell you everything you should be doing to help make the world a united safe place, you are a very deceived individual. The Word of God is the ONLY SOURCE of TRUTH that can be trusted fully, and completely! If you do not read and study your Bible every day, you are becoming an easy target to receive the serpent’s “mark”.
EVERY WORD OF GOD
IS AVAILABLE TO HELP US NOW
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
It is essential for every Christian to understand this basic fundamental of the Bible. If you read this opening verse, you find that the Bible is “quick”, and “powerful”. The word “quick” in modern translation is “alive” or “living”. In one translation it says “living” and “active”. In another it says “living” and “working”. In another translation it says “alive” and “full of power”.
This is an awesome claim of divine participation in every human life that desires to partake in the Word of God. This teaches us that these Words that were written thousands of years before, have valid life meanings, and applications to what is happening to each of us now. Many times, people are not looking for how these things can apply to contemporary circumstances, and they miss out on what God wanted to say to help them get through life. This is why God says in Hosea 4:6, my people are destroyed for not knowing my Word. Now notice what this next verse teaches us:
Ecclesiastes 1:9 – The thing that has been–it is what will be again, and that which has been done is that which will be done again; and there is nothing new under the sun. (AMP)
This is another essential reason why this Bible lesson about Revelation is important, even if you don’t see what is written here to be happening now. God establishes a concept of law in this verse. God reveals everything occurring in the dimension of human time, repeats. What happened before, will be what happens again, today or in the future and vice versa. This means what will happen in the prophecy of the future, could be what is happening right now. God is just saying very clearly, events reoccur, like today’s fashions of clothing probably has already happened at some time in some form. Maybe not exactly, but the pattern is so similar that it is identifiable to the trained eye. Wow! We pray this truth is coming alive in your spirit.
What is amazing about the Word of God, is that if we have a situation that we need God’s help with, we can stop and pray, and ask God to show us a verse that will help us. He can then direct you to a place in the Bible that was written “for” someone else, “to” someone else, “about” someone else, and it can be just the message that causes us understanding and hope for NOW! This is what God is doing through these lessons. He is providing us verses, that apply to our current situations, using verses that were intended for a soon coming timed event.
We are about to learn a pattern of a “serpent” rider on a white horse. What we are doing in this Bible series, is examining clues given to us in the book of Revelation. Not one clue is sufficient to understand what is said is a “right now” truth. This is the law of 2 or 3 witnesses that must be used to understand ALL truth (Deuteronomy 17:6, Hebrews 10:28). What we will find after going through all of the clues, should be a pattern of connected signs that at the very least, should help to guide us in the direction, that God wants us to go to learn the fullest form of truth.
Remember what Jesus said in John 8:32, “You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free”. This is why Satan silences the truth. As long as you are ignorant of what God has done for you, and given to you, you are an easy serpent captive prisoner. But don’t forget the verse before this one in John 8:31. Here Jesus said “If you continue in my Word, then are you my disciples indeed”. Please notice, there is “NO” assurance of being a disciple of Jesus, if you are not IN THE WORD.
AN INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW
In this Bible lesson, we will be focused upon a key verse in the sixth chapter of Revelation. God provides us a significant description of many of the events that will occur during the tribulation in the book of Revelation. This chapter 6, begins with a description of the Lamb of God in heaven, opening the first seal of a book, in verse 1. This heavenly action of the Lamb of God, causes a specific satanic serpent response on the earth. It is this exact scheduled response that appears to be prematurely thrown against us today. The serpent appears to be playing his cards before he is foretold to do so. This is actually a smart military move. It is like a surprise attack. Many military victories have occurred when the enemy was not expecting it. It would be like the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor and almost wiping out the entire naval force of the U.S. in WWII. But the serpent, like Japan has underestimated the knowledge, and power of God.
The book of Revelation is dominated with patterns, of sequences of sevens. First the tribulation lasts for 7 years, which is described to be the 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy concerning God’s dealings with the natural nation of Israel (Daniel 9:27). This time begins with the opening of a book sealed with 7 seals. Then comes the 7 trumpets. Then comes the terrible 7 bowl judgments. There is so much more that is mentioned that just cannot be studied here. All of this is not a part of this specific study on the subject of “Serpent Witchcraft”. No one should believe that any of this is happening as it is revealed for a future soon coming time.
But we are about to encounter a list of some of the most amazing “coincidences” possible with what is really happening in our world today. These are what some like to call, “Just so Happens” events. Seeing only one of these happening should not be sufficient evidence, to convince anyone that what is written in the Bible, could be the exact same as what we are experiencing. But combining all of these together, should begin to raise some significant concern, and awe with how God’s Word is so amazingly accurate and applicable for a right “NOW” warning to us all.
In Chapter 6 of Revelation, there are 4 horses listed with riders. These horses are primarily differentiated by the assigned color, and the rider’s qualities and descriptions. The order of mention of horse colors are 1) white, 2) red, 3) black, and 4) Pale (Green). It just so happens, that these 4 colors appear upon almost every Islamic nation flag. It is very interesting to learn how the events of the four horses, precisely correspond to the mention of events, described by Jesus in Matthew 24. Here is a list of references:
|Matthew 24||Revelation 6|
|A false Christ (v: 4-5)||White Horse (v: 1-2)|
|Wars (v: 6)||Red Horse – War (v: 3-4)|
|Famine (v: 7a)||Black Horse – Famine (v: 5-6)|
|Death (v: 7b, 8)||Pale Green Horse – (v: 7-8)|
This is an amazing set of parallels from two writers. But it confirms how the white horse rider must represent an antichrist figure.
It is important to understand that a horse was an animal mostly for war. We can learn this from a lot of verses, but we will only mention Revelation 19:11-19. In this passage, Jesus is described coming back to the earth riding a white horse, to make war against the beast we were learning about in the last Bible lesson. This return, is a very sharply contrasted entrance to Jerusalem, to when Jesus rode a donkey in John 12:15.
It is VERY IMPORTANT to know here in Revelation 6:2, this rider of the white horse, is NOT JESUS CHRIST. Most Bible scholars agree the rider we will be focused upon is antichrist. He is the serpent pretending to be Christ to trick people into believing a lie, to worship him. Let us begin by reading our key Bible verse:
Revelation 6:2 – And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
There are 32 English translation words found in this verse. But there are only 22 Greek words that make up these 32 English words. That does not sound like a lot, but it is amazing how much God can say in just a few words. God’s prophetical word selections are infinitely well thought out to bring His designed plan to pass, and demonstrate His great ability of foreknowledge. We will focus upon the rider first. We also view his intentions and motivations. Then we will look at his descriptive items. Finally, we will focus upon the horse symbol and the color white.
THE RIDER OF THE WHITE HORSE
Revelation 6:2 – And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
We are being introduced to a rider, described as sitting upon a white horse. As mentioned before this rider’s description appears to be imitating the return of Jesus Christ, as coming to the earth. In fact, the exact same Greek words (G3022 = white, & G2462 = horse), are written only in these two verses in the N.T. (Revelation 6:2, & Revelation 19:11). This appears to say, that this rider has a role of Christ in mind, as conquering LORD and Savior of humanity, and the warring judge of evil.
From this information we can only conclude one of two possible interpretations. Either both verses refer to the same rider, or they reflect the reality that they are two different riders, with one trying to take the appearance of the other. Since we know the rider in Revelation 19:11, can describe only Jesus Christ, this other rider in Revelation 6:2, must be a false-Christ actor or imitator. That would agree with 2 Thessalonians 2:4, where Paul wrote about the antichrist setting himself up to be God.
It is interesting to see from the descriptions of Revelation 6:2 and 19:4, that both horse rider’s intentions are to conquer the entire world. Which one do you believe succeeds? If you are having trouble figuring this out, the serpent is going to be thrown out of our world in Revelation 20:2. This would teach us that any of the serpent’s victories during the tribulation, will only be temporary.
Therefore, we should understand our described conquering rider in Revelation 6:2, “WILL” achieve significant world conquests, but only for less than 7 years. He will be doing this using his subtle tricks of deception. But this will be terminated when the LORD returns. OK, if this rider is the antichrist, we know this is the “serpent” that we were introduced to in the previous lessons.
We can learn the most in the Bible from what is directly written. But we can also learn from what is NOT mentioned in a verse. There is no mention of a name, or even a symbolic description of who this rider might be. This would appear to teach us, that this person or system of power, could be anyone we could meet in the world today. In other words, the rider will not be wearing a red suit, with horns, and a long-pointed tail, like people envision the devil to look.
This missing information can confirm to us, that this rider is not obviously evil to the casual uneducated observer. Therefore, this person could look exactly like a normal human. It could also be a group of eloquently speaking political figures. In Daniel chapter 7, God gives us another prophecy about this system consisting of 10 kings (called horns) and stating another little horn (the antichrist) would rise above them. We can see this repeated in Revelation 13, but we did not discuss it previously.
God could be warning us that no one will be able to tell who this person or system of individual rulers are, by their physical descriptions or photographs. They may all look, and sound very good to many, while being very evil minded inside to all. Notice that our rider, is not called a dragon, a serpent, a beast, or by any other distinguishing physical characteristic. Therefore, this is a God clue to teach us, that humans must NOT blindly trust anyone.
RIDER INTENTION TO CONQUER THE WORLD
Revelation 6:2 – And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on himhad a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Now notice what we have learned so far. There is someone taking the appearance to be like Jesus, who is riding a white horse of war. This person has their eyes upon conquering the entire world. But there is absolutely no mention of any weapons in hand to achieve this goal. Or is there? Let us confirm the rider system’s design is to conquer next.
We can confirm this with the Greek word G3528, that was translated as “conquering” and “conquer” in Revelation 6:2. This word literally means to “subdue” someone. It can also be translated as to “prevail” over someone, or “to get the victory” over someone. It occurs in the N.T. in 24 verses and the majority of the time it is translated in the form of the word to “overcome”, past or present tense.
Strategy is a key part of conquering. Therefore, let us look at this briefly in this section. Past world conquests have been attempted by many “want-to-be” rulers. Their conquering strategy has typically been to take the world piece by piece, over a drawn-out duration of significant time. There has been none that have conquered the entire planet, until possibly now. Uh oh!
Think of this modern fact about war. Things have certainly changed since Biblical warfare days, and God knew this. For example, if any obvious attack to conquer the world occurred, there could be some possible nations that would not willingly allow this to occur. With global nuclear proliferation of weapons, someone could possibly push the buttons, to destroy the attacking enemy, and in retaliation with them certainly being destroyed the same. This type of warfare leaves nothing to possess or control. This does not match this verse of Revelation 6:2. Clearly this would make a global nuclear conquest very unlikely.
Even if there was a conventional warfare that took place for global conquest, this could be a very long and drawn-out affair, and this certainly does not correspond with what Revelation 6:2 describes. If you read later in Revelation 6:4 you will find a “red horse” rider that does take peace from the earth. These wars cause significant deaths. What we learn from these facts, is the conquests taking place in verse 2, are not based upon nuclear or conventional warfare violence. We will speak more about this unconventional work of conquest, when we analyze the “bow”.
Let us analyze the Greek word translated as “went forth” that comes before the word “conquering”. It is important to note that this same Greek word G1831, is used in Matthew 2:6, to describe Jesus “coming into” the world, to be born in Bethlehem, to eventually become the Governor of Israel in Revelation 19-20. This was a quotation from Micah 5:2. It seems to indicate another paralleled comparison of plans, between God and the serpent. God brought forth the Christ to come to save and conquer and the serpent is counterfeiting this plan with his own. We need to actually look at all of the Strong’s definition of G1831, because this is very important to understand:
G1831- From G1537 and G2064; to issue (literally or figuratively): – come-(forth, out), depart (out of), escape, get out, go (abroad, away, forth, out, thence), proceed (forth), spread abroad.
This word definition teaches us that this world conquering system, was “sent-forth”, “departed-out”, “escaped”, and “spread-abroad”. This would at the least, imply this was an intentional planned world conquest, of whoever, or whatever it was that was being spread around the world. Uh oh?
Now see this information in the light of what we have learned about the current world pathogen, that suddenly, and unexpectantly “came forth” and was “spread-abroad” on our planet. A popular false prophet narrative, claimed it had just accidently “escaped” to spread from a wet market in the Great Red Dragon nation, to “go abroad”. But other more reliable sources of potential truth, have claimed there was a deliberate release where it was intentionally designed to be spread abroad to every nation of the world, for a potential purpose of globalization conquest.
Whatever happened (and God knows), this pathogen has crisscrossed the entire globe, over and over, going forth rapidly conquering the entire planet, exploiting human “fear”. This appears to be just one more “just so happen” accurate implied descriptions found in Revelation 6:2.
Ok, we are not done with our verse word analysis. Let us look at the word “to”, that precedes the word “conquer”. This is describing the horse, the rider and their intent. The Greek word G2443 that was translated as “to”, is defined as “intent”, “purpose”, or “planned result” for the rider and the horse. This simply confirms to us that this was, is, and will be, an intentional release for an intentional planned purpose and result. Right now, it appears that the serpent is winning, but fear not, because God is not done yet. What we have confirmed so far, is that when the rider of a white horse has gone forth into all of the world, their plan was only to conquer. Let us now move to the subject of the bow.
Revelation 6:2 – And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Here, is the problem with the rider of the white horse in Revelation 6:2. We can read clearly; his motivation is to conquer the world. Then we can only find a “bow”, that represents a part of an ancient projectile delivery system. This type of weapon is not likely to be used in modern times. Therefore, it must be symbolic or have a hidden meaning.
Let us briefly discuss how a “bow” works. This device is used for hunting, target practice, or ancient war. This would make it useful for at least three, or four purposes. One purpose would be for obtaining food. The next would be for just pleasure for increasing skill. The final would be for potential defense against an enemy, or for the evil intent of murder.
A bow works by creating, and releasing kinetic energy through the application of human strength, being combined with the designed device’s power and tension. Usually, a bow consists of a strong piece of line that is connected to the ends of a flexible object, like a piece of wood, or modern type of strong plastic material. By bending the bow portion and connecting the line to each end, it creates tension, that can be increased by pulling back upon the line. A projectile device called an arrow has a groove at the end that is inserted into the line, and then the line is pulled back to create the greater tension, until it is released by the holder of the bow. This “release” causes the kinetic flow of the arrow at a high speed away from the “bowman”, going through the “air” to cause the sharp tip of the arrow to enter into the desired target, either, animal, target, human being aimed at.
This is an amazing description of what we have been experiencing with the pathogen. We have had a ruling system, that released a pathogen that is transmitted by predominantly air, thus the demand for masks to stop the transmissions, etc. Now the plan has progressed (flowed forward), to include a dart injection solution of who knows what. This weapon choice of Revelation 6:2, has some vast symbolic implications being associated with it. But notice our white horse rider is not described to have any arrows directly. Therefore, these arrows could be implied.
This would seem to teach us, the rider is not the main one, that is delivering the arrow, dart, spear, or the needle to the people to cause fear from deaths. It looks like he is possibly just the one, that may be giving the peaceful orders for a hidden and mandated greater delivery system. We talked briefly about the factors of modern methods used to control people, in the last lesson. However, notice how similar the patterns of conquest are in Revelation 6:2, with what we have been going through in the world today with the pathogen.
The rider has NO “full” visible weapons for conquest. This teaches us at least two very important things we must know. First, this means this rider, is not conquering the globe with airplanes, submarines, armies, intercontinental ballistic missiles, etc. Second this teaches us, that his conquests methods are not normal and visible. Uh oh!
We can only find a “bow” in his hand, which is totally useless without arrows. What does the omission of sharp pointed projectiles tell us? This description makes this rider either the most stupid world conqueror on the planet, or one of the shrewdest, and most crafty unconventional and unexpected, evil beings we have ever encountered. We should probably vote for the second choice.
The “bow” is one of the most fascinating words found in this verse. What we should understand is that a bow represents only a “delivery” system for whatever will be “shot” from this device. Stop and think about what the Holy Spirit just said. Is it just another coincidence, that people get “shot” (pierced) with a sharp dart or arrow from a bow? If the “bow” is a figurative symbol, and not a literal item, then this could possibly change a lot of our views upon what could be figuratively “shot” into a human to control them. Let us take a look at this Greek word next translated as “bow”.
This Greek word G5115 translated as “bow”, only occurs here in this verse of the New Testament. There are no other verses to compare its application of usage, or its defined meanings. According to Thayer and Strong, this word means a bow. There is no other help that is given to us to understand it to be anything else. I read through nearly 30 different English translations of the Bible, and they were ALL translated as a “bow”. That consistency should almost scare us. It is very rare to see anything with 100% agreement, translated from the Word of God.
Perhaps the disagreement will come in only what the “bow” symbolically represents. Searching the internet for opinions, you can find a lot of people who do not have a clue what it is, and they guess. Therefore, let us only focus upon the transliterated Greek word to see what can be learned from this. The Greek letter sounds that can be transliterated into English represents the word “toxon”. This was God’s word choice for writing this verse and He knows everything about every word. This word choice will next become very amazing.
It just so happens, that from this Greek word, we get our English words “toxin” and “toxic”. Both of these describe and represent “poisonous” materials. According to the Online Etymology this word toxon, can also be associated to be the equivalent with the Latin words toxicus, meaning poisonous, and toxicum, meaning poison. It is also noteworthy, that this online resource speaks of a “toxon” (bow) being associated with the ancient practice of dipping the tips of arrows into poison, before shooting them into an enemy from a bow. Wow!
Here again is the problem with the rider of the white horse in Revelation 6:2. We can read clearly; his driving motivation is to conquer the world. And now we can see the possible implied usage of peaceful hidden “poisonous” substances, to accomplish this. And this is coming from a symbolic device that will produce a “shot” pierce mark to potentially kill people (maybe some slowly or others instantly). Notice, no one is making this up, this is what we can potentially see from this verse. Then remember this verse is alive and potentially trying to help us all see what we might need to know now.
Hopefully, you are seeing something potentially very useful to know about how this seated, “want to be world conqueror”, could be intending to spread his power, to conquer the world. The serpent could very well be using a modern bio-weapon of poison to cause death. This would again appear agreeable with how it was spread and swept the globe as an invisible peaceful conqueror. Has anyone ever seen the devil? So similar is this, with the pathogen named as a crown.
No one here is claiming this is what is happening, but each of us will have to judge the facts given to us by God, and let the peace of God rule our choices, or the lack of peace overrule what we do, and believe.
But, if this rider is a disguised conquering warrior, we must at least admit he is capable of doing anything very evil to achieve his peaceful goal. This logic would include an unseen type of bio-weapon that could bring him, or them power and control of the planet’s large population without causing massive destruction of physical assets. This would also imply a very large motivation of “greed” to own everything. We will see this possibility more confirmed, later in the Bible series, when we move to a different chapter of Revelation, the Lord be willing. Let us now move to the “crown” gift next.
THE CROWN GIFT
We can read in Revelation 6:2, where a crown gift is given to a potential one world, false Christ want to be ruler, for a possible coming system of global government. It is essential to notice, this crown was a “gift” given to the rider. It is at least, implied that this gift is given after he was seated and riding to conquer. Therefore, the crown source came from somewhere else. We can learn from reading in Revelation 13:2 that it was the “dragon” that gave the beast its power and authority. This appears to connect these two chapters together.
If you have been alive, and awake upon our planet for the last couple years, you have been introduced to a new word of fear by Satan’s design. Perhaps you have heard the word “corona” almost every day, being spoken constantly by the global false prophets. What does the word “corona” mean? This word has one definition of “being the area located at the top of the human head”. The coronal area extends from the front of the forehead moving around in a level circle to the back of the head. This would normally be where a hat, or a “crown” would sit upon the human head. For example, a “coronation” occurs when a prince is exalted to be king.
It is also very interesting to know that the word “corona”, is Latin and Spanish for a “crown”. Is this just another “amazing coincidence”? Are you keeping track of the number of coincidences we are observing? Did you know the Hebrew language does not have a word for “coincidences”? This would tend to teach us that God does not view things to be a coincidence. But you will have to judge for yourself, if you want to agree with the LORD, or not?
We should be able to see another pattern being repeated with this information, combining it with the previous section, about the bow. It should be becoming obvious we have both placements of the mark of the beast mentioned in this verse. The forehead would be where the crown could be placed, and the hand could be where a bow is held. This precisely matches the locations of the mark of the beast we read about in Revelation 13:16.
Now pay attention to where the governments of the world have focused upon to control their people. We have been forced fed a narrative for the need to wear a mask or face shield on our head, and constantly to wash her hands with sanitizer. Both of these requirements are in no way normal, or healthy. Nor do they stop the spread of what they claim is a severe priority. Now they are currently demanding a forced arrow “shot” participation from a type of bow.
Do you remember and understand the size of the crown pathogen? It is only 120 nm in size. The holes in a mask are over 100 times the size of that size. This would make it like stopping a mosquito with a chain link fence. Please say you do understand that comparison?
As we know a crown is one typical symbol for royalty, power, and authority. It is possible that this is the only thing that this word “crown” is referring to. But we should consider some other additional possible meanings, based upon what we read in Hebrews 4:12. Remember that it was this verse that describes the Word of God, to be a living active document, that is applicable to come alive to help us at every place, and time in our life. Why did the Lord direct us to this verse? This would also help to teach us to ask, how is what is written in Revelation 6:2 applicable, and useful for what is happening to us NOW!
Perhaps we can see the potential for a “toxin” being spread globally for world conquest? This “toxin” could be a combination of a man-made crown micro-weapon, that causes the alleged need for a new man-made serpent fang solution. Since no creator of this substance, clearly has fully tested it upon humans sufficiently, or will name all of the items that they contain, it should be more than a little concerning. We should all pay close attention to the fact that God chose these two words and put them together to describe a world conquest. Do you believe all of this is just a coincidence? How many coincidences does it take to make it real? Let us look at another potential coincidence with the color of the chosen horse.
THE WHITE HORSE
Revelation 6:2 – And I saw, and behold a white horse: and hethat sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
God could have chosen any colors to describe the 4 horses revealed in Revelation 6. But these were chosen to inform, teach and provide information for anyone that needed to know about what was happening, or was coming soon. Also think about this, perhaps the color of the horse is being selected by the evil rider, and not by God. This would be like God giving us the news warning, thousands of years before this selection would take place.
This should make the color “white” more than very important. We can believe God reported to us, this color to mean something that should be very recognizable and beneficial for us that are living at the time of the end. It could even have a meaning today, that has not ever been seen until recently.
The color white, can definitely be a symbolic message for peace or surrender. Anyone not wishing to fight, waves the white surrender flag to give up. This would appear to say, the rider takes the appearance of being very peaceful, while he is conquering. The color white is also a message of righteousness, purity, and cleanliness. For example, this would describe the clothing of the bride of Christ in Revelation 19:8. This would signify the evil intention of this ruler, is outwardly pure looking, while potentially being inwardly very evil.
But there is another current major world power system, that needs to be introduced, and addressed in this Bible study. Remember a horse represents a powerful system under the control of the government ruler rider. The rider must have the ability to steer the horse in the direction he wishes them to go. They typically do this by making laws and this steers the horse the way they wish it to turn. This describes the relationship with our next global horse industry.
This system has been around for a long time, but it has risen to become one of the most dominant modern influences in the last 100 years, for every human regardless of age. This industry was hopefully established as a good influence to our world to help hurting people, and many Christians worked in it. This industry worked together with governments to help get this beneficial help out. This industry was founded with a basic moral standard, and set of ethics and oaths, that profess they “will do their patient no harm”. They call this the Hippocratic oath. They normally swear this covenant before beginning to work in this field. However, greed has changed some powerful people in the upper management area, and even in the lower professional area of this good intended group, into another willing participating tool for deception. The Bible actually speaks about how this will be used to control people and we will hopefully, see this in the next lesson, the LORD be willing.
Governments have cooperated, and partnered with this industry extensively. This is done because this industry, is one of the largest political campaign contributors, and lobbyists that exists. It is also interesting that it is this industry that buys most of the advertisements to fund the false prophet voice platforms. Money is a clear factor for their intertwined, workings, power, and influence. The communicated narrative for these cooperative workings, has always been, for the perceived, “betterment of public safety, health, and for the prolonging of life expectancy”. Helping people to live longer and healthier lives, sounds really great, until it is turned into something else that is not for the narrative purpose still being claimed. This would appear to be what is happening in our world.
This is how deception works best. Create a history of good works, with respectable intentions of good, to ensure public safety, success, and to raise general public confidence to be high. Then create an intentional fear-based crisis, and then prepare a very similar sounding solution, that is totally new and different, but give it the exact same name of previous successes. Then mandate that the new untested solution must be taken, for all of the good of yourself, and your family, and your friends, and your co-workers, and the world.
Let’s analyze this industry a little deeper. Many of the current highest levels of professional workers in our subject industry, predominately wear professional white lab coats, like God’s first Revelation 6:2 white coated horse. Please understand the similarities. The horse being chosen by the rider, and described by the LORD, is clothed with a coat of white. The human professionals in this industry have been clothed in a coat of white as their own personal choice. Could this be foreknowledge?
This trend of wearing white lab coats only began in the late 1800’s. That is interesting since that is clearly in the category of the last of the last days. The main reasons given for wearing this white coat, 1) is their clean appearance, and 2) how this white coat causes their patients to feel positive about seeing them. In other words, it is for external perception, and not for the fact that they are actually pure and clean. It would seem to give people a greater confidence, and level of security, that these were the good guys that were taking care of them. Uh oh! This is still true for some of this industry, thank God!
Now for an emphasis upon some well-known disturbing information. Take note that the primary symbol for this industry, just so happens to be one or two venomous serpents on a pole. Wow, did God know all of this when He wrote the Bible? Of course, He did! He knew exactly who would wear white lab coats, and use the “serpent” idol as their symbol, after all they copied it from the Bible, and Moses in the book of Numbers.
Notice what God appears to teach us in Revelation 6:2. Here we can find an implied meaning, that it is the horse being ridden, that is increasing the power, and ability of the rider to conquer the world. In other words, if there were no white horse to ride, there would be a much different type of conquest. So there appears to be a direct cooperative partnership between whatever this horse represents (maybe this potential health industry), and the world government leader(s). Pay close attention to every horse being a different color, and every rider producing different results of evil. Also take note, no other rider is ever given a “crown”. Finally, notice that it is only this rider that conquers without the mention of evil things occurring. In other words, this makes it sound like a “peaceful” takeover. Doesn’t this sound like what we have been through recently?
Could it be the white coat animal that hands the “crown” (Latin corona) to the ruler to help with his conquests? Could it be the ruler using the toxin orders that help with this conquest? That is something very significant to begin to think about, and to see if that is really possible. There has been evidence revealed that it was the government (white horse rider) that funded the creation of the crown weapon, and white coated workers in the Great Red Dragon nation that developed, and released it. This implies that it was this cooperation between parts of the government (the rider) and the medical white horse under the influence of the “serpent”, that released it, that caused a global toxic evil to be spreading. It appears to have happened to eliminate an opposing President that was in office, who was not a part of their plan. There appears to be more of the Bible that is potentially happening now, then many currently fully comprehend.
We currently have a leadership of many, working and cooperating with a potential white-coat industry to produce acceptance of a “fang-mark”. The result of taking this, is an unproven, unknown and untested end. It has NOT been fully tested or fully authorized as safe by anyone other than the false prophets. No one but God and the manufacturers, knows all of the ingredients that are literally in these demanded arrow venoms. But if you are wise, you might go and search the patents and you may just find one ingredient just so happens to be a substance called “Luciferase”. Uh oh. What is that? This type of information is available if you search. You just can’t make this stuff up.
It is also more than just a coincidence that the majority of the fang mark solutions are two shots. How many fangs are in a serpent’s mouth? It just so happens that there are two injections in every natural serpent poison bite. Next there are coming booster shots that are being required for injection. We will see this happening in the next lesson, the Lord be willing.
How do so many people that are reporting to work every day to help save lives, want to participate in a fear driven propaganda serpent agenda? It is definitely called deception, but due to threats from employers, many are also being forced to participate or lose their jobs. We all do so very much appreciate the hard work of so many honest and good workers in this industry. There are a growing number of smart white coat industry workers, that have found ways to get out real working solutions for the weapon, without taking the “fang-mark”. These are people that still have a heart of compassion, and they are needed everywhere, if you are one of those people, we all pray for you to stay strong in the LORD.
We should have learned a lot of potential new information found in our Bibles, about things that could be currently happening in some form of a repetitious, or reoccurring pattern. Notice the photo at the beginning of this summary. A reader showed us this in a comment, and it was added to the lesson for confirmation. This was a photo created for a Genome Sequencing Lecture that is believed to have been held in the UK. This photo was a part of the company’s presentation discussing the pathogen crown sequencing discussion. Do you believe they knew what they had created, or was this just another coincidence? It appears to match a lot of the information that is contained within the Revelation 6:2 verse. Wow!
Many will call God and His Word, nothing but conspiracy theories, fiction and a book of misinformation. But, for those that want to see the truth, these can be eye opening words. We have been seeing a study of what just some of the book of Revelation, says will definitely happen in the end of this age. From what is happening now, it appears we are living very close to the time this could be happening next for real.
We have been introduced to a symbolic “serpent”, a spiritual being that has been around on the earth for at least 6000 years. We have seen a description of 4 types of “serpent” poisons that this evil being can use to deceive or kill people. We have seen the prophesied “mark of the serpent beast” in Revelation 13. We learned this was given with a hidden agenda and message. We learned that without this mark, people would not be able to work, buy, or sell. We have gone through only selected verses of Revelation, chapters 6, 12, & 13, so far.
In Revelation chapter 6, we were introduced to four horses of different colors, with our emphasis being on the first “white” horse. We should have learned this rider had intentions of globalization by world conquest. He appears to be a potential peaceful hero and world savior to be worshipped on the outside, but there is found the potential for a hidden toxin. This could possibly represent two poisons, the first being cleverly crafted words, and the other being a hidden poison control system created by a white coated powerful horse industry.
This should be a lot of information to cause many to begin to be awakened from the darkness that had covered their minds by the works of the serpent. We thank you all for taking the time to read and study the Bible with us. Please, ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you and guide you. Allow His guidance to rule your hearts and minds. At least understand, that it could have been the Holy Spirit to guide you to read this information. We have had so many testimonies from people that claimed this is what happened to them and we give God all of the glory for how He works.
Please, do not allow any of the words of this website, or the world false prophets, to place you into any fear. God is GOD, and there is no better source to trust in. Please discern our heart’s motivation and desire is to just help people to see something that they may not have seen or known before about God’s Word. We are not telling you that this is the only way to view these Bible verses. But we are saying these are all more than enough coincidences that should cause us all to pray for people in our world.
We love you all very much and will continue to pray for each of you. If you have a personal prayer request, you are welcome to leave it in the comments. If you have any questions, or comments, please feel free to share them. Remember God loves us all, and Jesus is Coming Soon. Be Ready!

(Ver 1.0) Today is a vital prophetic Bible study, on an essential current world topic. This Bible subject concerns one of the most important end-time warnings that God wants to reveal to humans. This plan of evil is revealing Satan’s strategy of coordinated deception, and his plans to try to control every human. This will be a highly explosive controversial subject that will certainly offend Satan, but could also potentially offend a lot of readers and even Christians. Therefore, be warned up front, if you do not consider yourself to be a spiritually awake and mature Christian, judge yourself to determine if you should continue reading. It is recommended that you read this lesson series from the beginning. If you have not read this, click on “Part 1” to go there first.
In this series we are talking about a nefarious prophesied planned tactic of human control from an ancient evil serpent. Today’s short Bible lesson, will only focus on the subject of the types of “serpents” that God reveals in the Bible. There will be four different types of “serpents” that will introduced. Two types of serpents will be totally natural, and the other two types of serpents, will be a potential combination of both spiritual and natural. We will hopefully, go over who or what they are, and introduce how they are effective to hurt, harm, or even kill people in this lesson.
Unless you have been living on a deserted island somewhere, you already are aware of something that is happening in the world that is “far” from good. Death has become the dominate topic of conversation. There appears to be a globally coordinated, and planned agenda to cause a one-world new ordered lifestyle, through fear driven words of deception, distortions, distractions, and biases. People today are intentionally being murdered, when they could have been quickly treated correctly, to live.
Please take note that this lesson will be taught using a lot of Biblical, spiritual terminology, representations and symbolism, to keep this message from being muzzled by Satan’s cooperative human IT workers of evil. I believe most mature Christians will understand it, and receive the spiritual message of warning from the LORD.
Let us go and study some of the key verses about who and what types of serpents, that are applicable for today’s plan of global deception.
#1- BIBLE OVERVIEW OF ENEMY SERPENTS
The first directly named mention of a serpent in the bible, occurs in Genesis 3:1, and this creature is defined to be Satan in Revelation 12:9 and 20:2. He is the main focus of this lesson series. But there are also other types of serpents, that are literal or figurative, that may be working with our main character to accomplish his great destructive evil.
There are at least four forms, or types of “serpents” mentioned in the Bible. These types represent natural, spiritual, and figurative patterns of serpents. There are spiritual serpents, and figurative serpents that are working together in the world today. Both of these categorized types of beings have amazing similarities and parallels. But it is important to know that they all represent sin, and evil. Let us quickly go through an introductory overview of these 4 types of evil.
First, there are the natural types of God created serpents, that slither, and slide along the ground. Christians today are not fighting these natural beasts in mass, as the children of Israel did in Numbers 21. However, this natural story of fiery serpents moving through the camp, to kill many people is a shadow of what is happening now in the world. Like Moses did by lifting up a serpent on a pole, to have people look on it to be delivered, is also what is available today. But people today are required to repent and look to Jesus on the cross for their spiritual salvation, and He is the only hope anyone has.
When, and where did these natural reptiles come from? Christians should believe the Bible, because God created the world, and He wrote the Bible, and He answers these questions. In Genesis 1:24, God begins day 6 of creation. At the beginning of day 6, God creates land animals of every kind. This would logically include any natural snake. Many people consider these creatures a physical enemy, which is very logical and wise. But God said He created these beings to help us to understand His greater unseen spiritual realities, in John 3:12.
Natural serpents are mentioned a few times in the Bible. But we will only be focusing upon one occurrence found in the Book of Acts for this lesson series. In Acts 28:4, the apostle Paul is shipwrecked on an island called Melita, where he is placing a pile of sticks on a fire. While feeding the fire, a venomous beast attaches itself to the hand of Paul. Everyone that watched this happen, looked upon Paul in amazement when he shook the beast off, and did not fall down dead. This is an amazing story that reveals more than you know right now. We will be talking more about this event, later in the series. Here are some little facts about poisonous and venomous natural serpents:
- A poisonous serpent or viper has specifically designed venom producing glands.
- Poisonous serpents have hollow long fang sharpened teeth that are used to inject the mouth gland’s poison into their victim.
- There are over 700 types of poisonous serpents in the world today.
- Over 250 serpents have the ability to kill a human with one bite.
- Serpents are globally prevalent. There are only about 6 nations on earth where snakes do not live.
- Many snake venoms contain neurotoxins that attack the nervous system, that is designed to immobilize and, or kill the victim.
- Sea snakes are some of the most venomous in the world.
- Snakes smell with their tongues.
- Venomous snakes usually have elliptical or slotted pupils in their eyes.
- Snakes are considered “cold blooded” animals.
- Most snakes have very keen eyesight and night vision.
Most of us know that natural serpents are real, widespread globally, dangerous, designed to kill or cause harm, and should not be ignored, and treated like they do not exist. Therefore, if we should not ignore natural dangerous serpents, we better not ignore a far more powerful spiritual poisonous serpent named Satan. All of these descriptive qualities of naturally created serpents, have parallels into the other spiritual, and figurative serpent types.
The next type of serpent mentioned in the Bible, is a spiritual being named Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12). This spiritual being is first referenced by God to be a symbolic serpent in Genesis 3:1, but his identity is not clearly revealed until Revelation 12:9. That fact causes these two books (the first, and the last), and these two chapters (3 and 9), to be very intimately connected. It also teaches us that this figurative serpent represents an unseen hidden enemy.
Revelation 12:9 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.
This symbolic serpent is our central figure of this Bible study, and he is also one of the secondary central themes of the entire Bible. He is identified in this verse, to have two names, and two figurative descriptive symbols. The two symbols are the “old serpent”, and “great dragon”. With these symbols is prefixed qualification of “old” and “great”. The two identifying names are the “Devil” and “Satan”. “Devil” means “false accuser”, and “Satan” also means “adversary accuser”. Both of these names identify Satan to be a masterful slanderer using words. He uses words of deception craftily, like casting a spell upon a victim.
Today there is a battle of words taking place. It is a key part of what is happening in the strategy of the serpent in our world. There is an evil side that is producing words of fear, division, hatred, and redefinition of evil being called good, and good being called evil (Isaiah 5:20), and the God side is attempting to just tell the truth in love (Ephesians 4:5). Christians are going to become deceived, if they do not learn to pay attention to the words they hear.
A lot of Christians believe we should not spend time studying this spiritual enemy, but obviously they have not been a Christian long enough to know how evil, powerful, and tricky this enemy can be:
2 Corinthians 2:11 – so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes. (NASB)
It should be obvious from reading the Word of God and from our human experiences, that Satan has schemes of evil to work against humans. Paul wrote that we should NOT be ignorant of these strategies, yet too many people are. Any wise military general understands, the more they know about how an enemy can operate against them, the more likely they are to overcome them. Let us just read about one key part of Satan’s ability to control humans:
2 Corinthians 4:4 – In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Satan has an uncanny ability to produce a shadow of darkness that overwhelms the human mind, causing people the inability to see the truth. God says there are people in the world that do not believe the truth about Jesus to be saved, just because of this ability. But even some Christians can experience this darkness to not see certain Bible truths. We learn from this verse, that this deception is occurring in the unseen human mind, by an unseen spiritual serpent god. Wow!
Therefore, the number one strategic way Satan figuratively poisons people, is by thought filled words of deception. We learn that Eve was deceived by the serpent in Genesis 3:13, by her own admission, she said she was deceived by the serpent. But then we learn in the New Testament that God claims she was only deceived in her thoughts:
2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Surely you can see that the modern church is being warned to control our thoughts. We learn from the Word of God, that any thought in our mind, could potentially come from Satan. Therefore, it must be evaluated by comparing it with the word of God in the Bible (2 Corinthians 10:5). This is your only guarantee that this thought is something that needs to be agreed with, spoken, or acted upon.
Then reading in a connecting verse in Revelation 12:9 we discover this same serpent, has deceived the entire world. Therefore, the words of the serpent represent poison, that causes spiritual death. Serpent words in Genesis left the entire world separated from God, spiritually dead. You have just been introduced to two types of poisons, in serpent types 1 and 2. A natural serpent has a natural poison substance in its mouth to kill people physically, and the spiritual serpent has poisonous words of deception in its mouth to spiritually kill people. Let us examine a new type of spirit serpent next.
Ok, now for the next prevalent type of “serpent” that is mentioned in the Bible. This type of serpent is a figurative representation of another spiritual being. Can you guess what type of being this can be? Yes, it could be angels, devils, demons and other unclean spirits, but those fall into the serpent type 2 category. No serpent type 3, could be any human you hear speaking to you. This is why, we better learn this lesson from the Bible and learn from God’s Word. Paul wrote in Romans 3:4 “…let God be true, and every man a liar…”. Let us review some verses that introduce this type of human serpent:
Psalm 140:1 – Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
Psalm 140:2 – Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
Psalm 140:3 – They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders’ poison is under their lips. Selah.
These verses describe a natural human being, that has an extremely evil heart. This would indicate this human is connected to be like the unseen spiritual serpent also named Satan. Notice in verse 3, God says this human has a sharp tongue like a serpent, and they have adders’ poison under their lips. These are clever symbolic representations of people who deceive, and hurt other humans, with their words, and actions.
Take a quick look at one other reference to how human words can be a deadly poisonous substance:
James 3:7 – For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
James 3:8 – But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
We find in verse 7 of James 3, that God speaks of humans being able to tame every kind of naturally created beast, including natural serpents (serpent type 1). But this natural reality, is being compared to an unruly spiritual evil full of deadly poison, called the human tongue. God is now teaching us how Satan is using the words of deceived humans, to deceive other humans. These types of humans can be just introducing us to false religions, Satanism, socialism, Marxism, communism, or atheism. And it could also be coming from anyone, including politicians. An injection of poisonous words, can be coming from any source, including your neighbor, a boss, the television, and the internet.
Currently in the world, there are literally billions of deceived people that have been buying into the untruths of Satan. These deceiving words are being spoken through people (like the false prophets), who have no real concept that they are being used by an evil spirit (Ephesians 2:2). It is amazing how a deceived person, can believe they are the one that is speaking the truth, and believe that those that are actually speaking truth are speaking the untruths (2 Corinthians 4:4). But God said this would happen, and warned us of it in Isaiah 5:20. In this verse God says “Woe to them that call evil, good and good, evil. Please let me give you another set of key verses that are very relevant to our subject of serpent witchcraft.
Act 13:6 – And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:
Act 13:7 – Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.
Act 13:8 – But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
Found here in the Bible, is an amazing parallel to what is happening in our modern times. Satan always repeats the same strategies and plans, just to new people. Ecclesiastes 1:10 says, “Is there anything we can say, this is new? No, it has been already in old time, before us”. This is a wise principle to know and apply. This makes Bible study exponentially more important in these times that we are living. The more we learn about what Satan was doing in the past, the more we can be prepared to know what could be happening now. In this passage we are about to be introduced to the ancient concept of witchcraft and magic, to see how it was used then, and how it can be repeated now and in the future.
Here in Acts 13, We can read, where Paul and Barnabas were going through the land preaching the Gospel of Jesus, when they came across a government ruler named Sergius Paulus. This man desired to hear the words of light and truth spoken from Paul. But there was opposition from a human, that was a false prophet, magician, and sorcerer named Barjesus. This evil man tried extensively to silence the truth. This man was attempting to sway the ruler away from hearing God’s words of truth to bring light, in order to keep him in Satan’s dominion of darkness (Acts 26:18). This is exactly what is happening today, but on a much larger scale. Here is what Paul said about this evil man:
Act 13:9 – Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,
Act 13:10 – And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
This is an accurate description of people that are doing the same in our world today. Notice the Greek word G1388 translated as “subtilty”, leads God’s descriptive terms. This word means, “a decoy”, “a trick bait”, or “a wile”. Wile is defined as a strategy to deceive in order to trap and ensnare a person into believing a lie. It is like placing a tasty piece of cheese on a trap, to get the mouse, to take the bait and die.
This is happening every day from the mouths of the modern false prophets, that we learned about in lesson 1. We can learn from this, that whatever a false prophet is claiming is the truth, is actually the opposite of the truth. In fact, whatever a false prophet accuses their enemy of doing, is what they are doing. The accusation is given just to distract the attention away from them.
The next Greek description is G4468, and it was translated as “mischief”. This Greek word is defined by Strong as “recklessness”. Recklessness can be defined as someone who gives little or no thought to the risk of danger. This would apply to any danger to themselves, as well as any danger to others. These types of people care very little about their safety, or about who else gets hurt. This could describe a terrorist suicide bomber. This is clearly a type of person that is deceived, and on their way to hell, and does not care how many others they take with them.
Now we get to the most important description of this type of individual. This man in Acts is called a “child of the devil”. Did you hear that? What is a child? One answer to what is a child, is a “seed” (Genesis 4:25). Who is the devil? We should all know, the answer to who is the devil, is he is the serpent (Revelation 12:9). Paul was calling him, “a seed of the serpent”. Where do we hear about this in the Bible for the first time? Perhaps you know it is Genesis 3:15. In this verse God is speaking directly to the “serpent”, as he says there will be enmity (hatred) between you and the woman, and between her seed and your seed. Wow, this is very important to understand.
Finally, notice the word description. to “pervert” the right way. This Greek word is G1294 and it means to “distort”. This could be exchanged with the synonym, to “twist” the true way to righteousness. God is saying there are people in the world that are intentionally, trying to turn you away from seeing the truth, to send you to hell with their lies and tricks. This is the antichrist spirit that has been working since Paul was preaching (2 John 1:7).
This type of serpent, being described is full of deceit, guile, subtilty, treachery, and great evil intentions. This type of serpent is a type of their serpent father’s pattern (Satan). This type of “serpent” uses words to deceive, and turn people in a direction they should not be in agreement with. Think of this type of person to be like a warlock or wizard magician that is casting a spell upon someone, they want to do harm to. This type of serpent is working with their father to bring magic, and witchcraft to the people of the world.
This type of serpent’s number one ways of deception; is to first distract from, or plainly silence the truth. This was like Barjesus, did to Paul. Then they will bring people hopeful words of hidden subtle poison. And they do this by hiding and disguising the lies with tasty labels that promote human flesh desires for relief from created threats of death, poverty, sickness, and etc. But whatever they are saying or doing, is actually leading people deeper into the problems that they claim they are being saved from.
Next, let us go through the fourth type of serpent, which is another figurative type to conclude this lesson.
Ok, there is a fourth type of figurative serpent, that is representative in the Bible. Serpent 4, characterizes any natural deadly type of poisonous substance. Like Satan and his seed sorcerers can use poisonous words to cause spiritual death, they also can use literal poison to intentionally cause physical death to humans. Satan is first interested in your spiritual death, but physical death becomes a greater priority after anyone becomes a Christian. But remember, Satan always wants to deceive you first.
Once a person is deceived, they can be used by Satan easily, to deceive or physically kill other people. Take for example, the late Jim Jones in 1978, who was a deceived cult preacher that killed a lot of his followers by giving them a deadly poison to drink. Here we had two types of poisons (one spiritual, and one natural) working together to kill a lot of people. This makes this type of spiritual and natural death, one of Satan’s greatest planned strategies, and we will be talking more about this in other lessons, because this is a repeated pattern of poisoning people by the evil one, and it is happening again today on a global scale.
Let us review a few examples of this type of physical poison in the Bible. In Exodus 15, God wrote of Moses and the children of Israel in the wilderness being very thirsty. They come upon a place named Marah, that had only bitter water. After Moses cast a tree branch into the water, it became sweet, and good to drink. It is implied, that drinking the bitter water would have been deadly. Fortunately for the children of Israel, Moses was a prophet of God that helped them, and not a Jim Jones that was trying to kill them.
In Mark 16:18, God informs us that if Christians drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them. In another place, in Revelation 8:10, we can read about a satanic star named Wormwood, that falls from heaven to the earth. This event of evil, poisons 1/3 of the drinkable waters in the world. This passage claims “many” people will die from this coming poisoning. This is just another example of the Jim Jones type of event, on a much larger scale. There are also other types of potential venomous substances, and poisoning methods, that can be given to people through massive deceptive tricks. We will address this subject more later in the series.
We have been discovering the Biblical subject of “serpents” and how they threaten the freedoms of human life with poisons of witchcraft. We have found that there were at least 4 types of serpents, that were introduced to us today in this lesson.
There was one type of naturally created serpent that depicts a warning pattern for the other types of figurative and symbolic serpents being given by God in His Holy Word. These naturally created serpents (type 1), are very subtle beings. They can appear not to be there and then suddenly strike without warning. Their poison can literally kill a human in a matter of minutes.
But there is also another type of natural serpent that was not mentioned. This type of natural serpent is very large and powerful. This serpent wraps around its victims, and then slowly squeezes until they are unable to breathe, and the victim dies from suffocation. People today have been dying this way in hospitals. Do you believe this is also related to the modern strategy of Satan? We will be talking more about this in the future, the Lord be willing.
The next more prevalent serpent type number 2 was Satan. This was God’s chosen description of Lucifer who deceived Eve with his tricky words in Genesis 3. Because of Adam’s willful rebellion, spiritual and physical death, both entered into the world. This resulted in the first mention of fear (Genesis 3:10). This enemy deception, caused man to become fearful of their creator God, and He was their only hope. This act of the subtle serpent, made the devil believe that he was in control, but it was through this God created concept of “death”, that literally caused Satan’s defeat (Hebrews 2:14).
The third type of serpent was humans that were called a child of the type 2 serpent, named Satan. According to the law of Genesis 1:12, every seed is produced from the source of its own kind. Therefore, these types of people are almost exact patterns of their father the devil. These humans have been deceived by Satan’s words, and are now controlled to be used to deceive other humans from joining God’s Kingdom. Most of these people do not have a clue that they are deceived, and they are being used for evil, or that Satan even exists. But there are a few top leaders that have worship practices to exalt Lucifer to the position that he desires in his evil heart. Too many deceived people today have fallen into a trap of greed for money and power. But their end is not a good one, and hell will be a place of greater torment for these.
The fourth type of serpent is figurative for a natural poison. It has the similar characteristics of the other three types of serpents, in a more deceptive packaged presentation. This type of poison can be demon inspired, and human developed, distributed, and attractively presented as something good, and beneficial for life. It can be even praised, and worshipped by many. To those that are deceived by the false prophet narratives, it can be easily given out for free, and eagerly and willingly desired to be taken. But to others that can see what is happening, it can be forced upon them with threats of losing some essential modern necessity of survival.
We are nearing the time of the end of the world. The previous days of compromised middle ground harmony between those good and evil, has been removed. Fence sitting Christianity has been torn down, and which side of the world you wish to stand in, has been set before us as a plain choice. God is bringing out prophets today, that are standing with Him, and saying:
1 Kings 18:21 – … How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him…
There has been a clear line drawn by God. Your choice to whose side, you are whole heartedly standing with, can, and will determine your eternal destiny in God’s kingdom, or the serpent’s kingdom in hell. But I do not want to end this lesson without giving people hope. Because God loves us so much, He has given us hope, that the serpent will not prevail in this plan against God’s church to overcome us.
According to the Word of God, we (the church) can overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus), and the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). We can also read when Jesus gave all Christians believers, His authority over all of the serpent types found in the Bible (Luke 10:19). We have been blessed by the LORD with an indwelling greater Spirit than he that is working in the world (1 John 4:4). But authority given over a serpent is useless, unless it is utilized and applied. Don’t allow the fear produced by a serpent plan, to cause motionlessness.
Thank you for spending the time to read and study the Word of God with us at agapegeek.com. We love you all, and pray God’s best for you. If you need prayer, please just leave us a message. It would be our privilege to pray for you. We also love whenever you pray for us. The serpent is an equal opportunity destroyer. He would love to kill us all, but our God has given us His blood to redeem us from Satan’s authority. Thank you, Jesus!
If you would like to continue reading in this Bible series, please continue with “Part 3” now.
(Ver 1.0) This is Part 1 in a series of lessons on the book of Revelation that reveals parallels with world current events. This lesson is a vital prophetic Bible study, on an essential current world topic. This Bible subject concerns one of the most important end-time warnings that God wants to reveal to humans. This plan of evil is revealing Satan’s strategy of coordinated deception, and his plans to try to control every human. Satan is attempting to tell us all lies as often, and from as many sources as possible, to get everyone to believe them. This has been so very successful to deceive too many people. This will be a highly explosive controversial series, that will certainly offend Satan, but could also potentially offend a lot of readers and even Christians. Therefore, be warned up front, if you do not consider yourself to be a spiritually awake and mature Christian, judge yourself to determine if you should continue reading.
If you would like to read the ending summary first, before continuing with the detail, you may go to “Part 6” and then return back to Part 1 to learn more details.
I believe the LORD wanted us to go in a new direction for this lesson series, to help as many people as possible. There are major eternal consequences for being deceived in these last days. Believing the wrong message, could shorten our lives on the earth, or even send us to hell. We will be talking about a nefarious prophesied planned tactic of human control from a serpent. If you have ever read the book of Revelation, you could be like a lot of people and wonder, what does all this mean, and how, and when can it possibly come to pass? The things that were prophesied, have never been possible to take place, in the way that they are stated in the Bible, until NOW. Because of the rapid advancement of technology, we can see so much happening all around us that matches what the prophets of 2000+ years ago wrote about.
God literally told the prophet Daniel, to seal up his book until the time of the end. God said this in Daniel 12:4, where it is written: “Many will run to and fro, and knowledge will increase”. How can words that were written thousands of years ago, and have not changed in the least little bit, suddenly have profound new meanings that no one has ever seen before? This is a very perplexing riddle, unless you understand the writer of the Bible knew the future, and He described things in the terms that only those living in the end-of-time could understand. This is why so much new revelation is coming forth about our times of the end.
For example, without the modern inventions of bullet trains, cars, and jet airplanes, the ability to move around the globe rapidly by people mentioned in Daniel 12:4, was not possible. In the same way, if not for the modern inventions of large-scale computers, servers, networks, laptops, tablets, smart phones, the internet, satellites, and fiber optics, the knowledge of the world increasing, and being passed around rapidly, would be extremely limited. Living in the information age causes us to better understand what was hidden in Daniel 12:4. This is one of the key principles for understanding any end-time prophecy.
Christians should have a great advantage of knowing more about the times, and seasons that we are living in, then the unsaved world. According to 1 Thessalonians 5:4, Christian should not be living in darkness so that the end of days should surprise us. Because we can read and study the Bible prophecies, we can use the foretold information about future events, come alive to us as we watch them occurring.
Currently there is a coordinated satanic plan of evil to overtake the world, that is being perpetrated globally, upon everyone simultaneously! Please take note that this lesson series will be taught using a lot of Biblical, spiritual terminology, representations and symbolism, to keep this message from being muzzled by Satan’s cooperative human IT workers of evil. I believe most mature Christians will understand it, and receive the spiritual message of warning from the LORD.
This website has had people try to shift our work for God by telling us, we should not be concerned with teaching what the Bible says about politics, money, medicine, or anything else that is potentially offensive to some. However, since God speaks about all of these subjects and more in His Word, we will continue to be like Peter and John in Acts 4:19; “Whether it be better to obey God or you, you judge”. As for our website, we will do our best to always obey God.
Let us move into today’s lesson, of the introduction to divine warnings to not be deceived.
#1 – END-TIME DECEPTION WARNING
Christians must become enlightened to the times, that we are living. We also must discern to see the plans of evil, and stand against them, in prayer utilizing the authority given to us by the LORD Jesus (Luke 10:19). Or we will fall into the tricks of our spiritual enemy, to become deceived. We must pray, and seek divine wisdom, revelation, discernment, help and guidance, to counter this severe evil attempt to deceive us. Jesus personally, listed first in His description of end time events, one great warning. In Matthew 24:4, Jesus said the following:
Matthew 24:4 – And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Why would Jesus make this His priority end-time warning, for His people? It would appear to say to us, that this will be Satan’s primary goal, and the basis of his strategy, to defeat us. How are people deceived? Most deception comes from subtle words. We can learn from reading in Romans 3 and James 3, how words can be poisonous to bring people harm and deceit.
We can go back and read about the first deceit in Genesis 3. This is where the ancient serpent tricked Eve with his subtle, and crafty poisonous words (1 Timothy 2:14). Genesis 3 was the first recording of human deception taking place. But reading Revelation 12:9, God declares the entire world will be deceived by this “serpent”, who has grown into the “Great Red Dragon”.
Revelation 12:9 – 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.
Here we have a very key definition given, to the true identity of the “serpent” of Genesis 3. This serpent is clearly defined to be the devil, also called Satan. This definition also clearly teaches us that the “serpent” was a symbolic name, since the “great dragon” is also a symbolic reference. This spirit being is said to be the source of the deception of all humans. Therefore, we know where the supply of deception seeds come from. But we must also understand that Satan uses two methods working together to deceive people. The first method of deception occurs in the human mind, as we read described in 2 Corinthians:
2 Corinthians 11:3 – But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
This is an essential God commentary on Genesis 3 about how Satan operated in the Garden of Eden. The Greek word translated as “beguiled” means “to seduce wholly”. In other words, to deceive completely. But it is the location, and method of this deceit that is important to understand. Paul wrote to the church about his concern, that how Satan tricked Eve in her mind, so he was operating in their minds with the exact same methods. Therefore, we understand that thoughts of temptation, and deception come from Satan. Be aware of this. If a thought does not align with the Word of God, cast it out of your mind (2 Corinthians 10:5), with a statement of “It is written” like Jesus did (Matthew 4:10). Now let us look at method 2 of Satanic deception:
Revelation 2:14 – But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
The second primary method of deception used by Satan, is to use easily deceived people, to deceive other people. We can read about this again in Revelation 2:14. This is another example of a “false prophet”, that was used to deceive the nation of Israel by Satan. In this example, Jesus is rebuking the church for falling into this trap of acting like a Balaam, who was a false prophet. This church doctrine was to introduce stumbling blocks, which represent temptations to be led away from serving God. This teaches us clearly, that even pastors in churches can become a “false prophet” to lead people away from God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Uh oh? We will be talking more about the subject of today’s false prophets as we continue. But let us review the concept of how this strategy works first.
How the Gospel was, and still is spread from one saved person sowing Good Seeds to save another unsaved person, is the exact same method of sowing evil seeds being used by Satan to deceive people. Jesus taught us this concept in the Parable of the wheat and tares (Matthew 13:24-30). Satan will deceive one person in their mind, and used this deceived person to spread the same message of lies to another. The growth potential of this tactic is exponential. This is the Satanic strategy happening today in the world. Satan has cleverly learned that by potentially silencing all other seeds of truth, his evils seeds become more believable. But this strategy will never stand up against the knowledge of God’s truth. Knowing God’s Truth will keep Satan from destroying you (Hosea 4:6). Let us get back into the foundational warning verse of this lesson.
In Matthew 24:4, Jesus starts with the word G991, that is translated as “take heed”. But that is not a sufficient meaning. This Greek word literally means, to open our eyes, to focus upon, and to become aware of something. This something being spoken of, is called “deception”. Remember in Genesis 3:7, God wrote the eyes of Adam and Eve were opened after the woman was deceived, and Adam intentionally rebelled. This statement would appear to teach us, Adam and Eve had their eyes shut, implying they never expected deception of an enemy to come into their garden. This would appear to teach us a pattern, that the Church should learn from.
- We must learn from the first human failure, to keep our eyes open.
- We must learn to expect deception to try to come and kill us.
- Then we must learn, that only agreeing with God’s Word of truth will keep us from falling for the poisonous lies from our enemy.
Some synonyms for “deception” are; a ruse, trickery, a con, dishonesty, fraudulence, and a scam. Other words that can be applied are being “two-faced”, “underhanded”, “false”, “fake”, and many others. Satanic deceptions are lies, that are mixed with selected bits of truths, and usually presented to be enticing. Deception is now happening, all around us. This deception is called a type of spiritual poisoning, because deception has crept into every realm of our society, and human influence, including the body of Christ in the church.
In the past, we thought we could trust our preachers. In the past, we thought we could trust our doctors. In the past, we thought we could trust our government leaders. In the past, we thought we could trust our high court judges. In the past, we thought we could trust our school teachers. In the past, we thought we could trust our news media. In the past, we thought we could trust our employers. In the past, we thought we could trust our family, and friends. In the past, we thought we could never lose our freedoms. But the majority of these people and qualities of normalcy, have been overrun (Ephesians 2:2) with a massive coordinated plan, and strategy of Satanic deception (Matthew 24:4), and redefinition of what is right, and good (Isaiah 5:20). But we need to learn to first trust God, learn His Words of Truth, and make them our FIRST priority. Begin everyday by asking God, “Show me what, I need to know to not be deceived today”.
There has been, and potentially will continue a strategy of Satan to bring a mass coordinated brain washing set of talking points to every human. This was intentionally designed and implemented to cause a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). This spirit of fear, has been ultimately designed, to produce the human desire, to give up our rights of freedom, and to willingly participate in the demonic take-over and control of our world. How many people do you know today, that are living in fear? I have heard this from too many people, it consumes them and it is because of a “fear of death”. Take a look at these verses:
Hebrews 2:14 – Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Hebrews 2:15 – And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Jesus Christ came into the world to destroy the power of death from Satan. He did this by participating in death and rising from the grave to conquer it. Yes, Satan is still trying to “kill” everyone with his “poison”, but that will only effect those that do not know the truth. Notice what fear does in verse 15. Fear places people into a state of willing lock-downed isolation of obedience, passivity, compliance and servitude. This lowers people made in the image and likeness of God, into a masked, faceless existence, with the removal of all basic human rights to freedom.
This satanic masterful strategy of mass exaggerations and lies, has caused so many people to just do anything that they are told, without any regard to consequences of their choices. This is the practice of human conditioning, assimilation, and acclimatization. Humans are being trained, and programmed, to blindly follow instructions like cloned identical robots, and to just automatically follow the ever-changing voice commands of alleged good sounding leaders. These people create a crisis. that fuels the flames of fear-based deception, to cause people to want to obey.
Did you know that this is what the Bible says, will happen in the future when the antichrist takes control of our world? God wrote about these future events almost 2000 years ago, and we can just now begin to understand how they can happen. We will get into these detailed strategies as we go forward in the Bible study series, if the Lord be willing.
We already read in the opening statements, about Jesus warning His people to not be deceived by any human, and that includes this website. Don’t believe anything we say. We are not God, and we didn’t write the Bible. Please, do your own work, to study and show yourself approvable to God (2 Timothy 2:15). Here is another warning verse, spoken from the lips of Jesus:
Matthew 24:11 – And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Jesus repeats His warning from verse 4, in Matthew 24:11 with the same emphasis, but being more specific with human beings that are deceived by “false prophets”. What exactly is a “false prophet”? Since God in the flesh specifically warns about this, we need to understand it.
God defines “false prophets” differently, then you might think. Many people, that have heard of “prophets”, believe they are someone that just speaks about something, that will come to pass in the future. Then if something said was not fulfilled in a time confirming their thoughts, they call them a false prophet. But that is not an accurate description. There are many examples from God in the Bible, where one of His prophets said something that did not come to pass. This was because people prayed, repented, and changed, and God said this made a difference.
God in 2 Peter 2:1, defines a false prophet and a false teacher, to be someone that denies the LORD Jesus. This definition is interesting because we can find instances like this in the Bible. For example, in Revelation 16:13, God prophesies that there will be a coming false prophet that will be empowered by Satan, and he will certainly deny the LORD Jesus. If you go study this topic you will find that this false prophet is taking people away from knowing God, and pointing them to serve the beast. That is how a false prophet works. But there are other examples of false prophets in the Bible.
If we read in 1 Kings 18:19, we learn a little bit about these types of evil false prophets. There was a very evil ruling queen named Jezebel, and she reigned over the people using fear. She made it her goal to kill off God’s real prophets to silence their words from being heard by the people of the nation. That sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Who is being silenced on the internet, news media, etc.? Then she replaced the real truth from God, with her message. She had at least 400 men, that ate at her table, and she called them her “prophets”. This teaches us a lot, about the subject of “false prophets”.
Here is what we learn in the Bible, about these types and patterns of people. These “false prophets” were sponsored, paid for, and bought by an evil government and ruler. Therefore, the poisonous message, that came from their mouth, agreed with the evil agenda of the Satan controlled ruler in the government. People of Israel, thought that they could trust prophets because of their past experiences with God. So, when the false prophets come with deception to bring them into serving the false god Baal, they are easily swayed away from their true God. Jezebel did a good job at silencing the God message, by silencing most of God’s servants. But God still had an Elijah that He was about to use, to turn the nation back to Him. All of these tactics of fear and silencing are being repeated today, just in new and different high-tech ways.
Deu 11:16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
The nation of Israel was warned by God not to be deceived to be turned, and driven to serve false gods to worship them. This is exactly what the “false prophets” of Jezebel did and they fell for the trap and trick of the enemy. God says to the church in 1 Corinthians 10:11, these mistakes committed by Israel, were written for our benefit to learn not to repeat, the same mistakes. Yet too many Christians have fallen into the trap of listening to today’s false prophets.
Who are today’s false prophets? We can still see today how people wholeheartedly believe what the false prophets in today’s world say to them. This causes people to be easily deceived. Who in today’s world, agrees with a one-sided extreme government position, and does not allow any other position or opinion to be told? Who in the world today are silencing every opposing opinion? Who in the government today claims God is not welcome in their House of Representatives, or their Senate? Who in the world are agreeable to the murders of innocent unborn children in their governor’s mansions and ruler houses? If you do not know the correct answer, you are probably deceived by them already.
These modern-day false prophets that are agreeable in mass with the Satanic agenda, and who are promoting his false narrative for the overthrow of civility, are called reporters, journalists, anchors, correspondents, news-casters, and editors, but I can think of some other words that are not so flattering. This is why I do not watch, or listen to the false prophet agenda, anymore. Please do not misunderstand. Not everyone in this industry is the devil. Many are good and legitimate, fair, truthful, and news minded types of people. But most of these are only found on limited platforms and have been completely removed from major social media.
In this lesson, we learned a lot of good information about the ancient serpent’s modern tactics of deception. These strategies of the devil are being implemented, and utilized using massive coordination, across many platforms of industry and governments. This should be one of the major things to pray against. Decree and declare for a spirit of confusion, to manifest in all of the enemies plans to take control of the world. Take authority over the devil’s plan to control the people of the world with his deceptive lies, and forbid it, in the name of Jesus. Bind the spirit of fear, and do not allow this evil spirit to enter your home, or your mind. True Christ followers, have full authority over the devil according to Luke 10:19.
This lesson series will be labeled as “d-i-s-i-n-f-o-r-m-a-t-i-o-n” by many of the false prophets, and their Jezebel rulers, and handlers. It will be labeled as “conspiracy theory” by many others. But please remember, Noah was a conspiracy theory preacher for 100 years, until it started to rain. Therefore, beware, and don’t believe anything that is written or spoken here, or anywhere else, unless you can verify it for yourself, in your own Bible study. Then hold fast to whatever you find to be the truth in His Word. Stand with God and His Word alone. Finally, please STOP LISTENING TO THE FALSE PROPHET agenda! This should be one of your priorities after reading your Bible. But do not cease to pray.
In the next lesson, the Lord be willing, we will be getting to how Satan is attempting to prepare us for more of his deception. There is a growing real hidden agenda of massive evil, that is not being told to us, by the mass of the fake and false prophets of Jezebel. But stand strong and look for the spirit of Elijah to arise again. There is about to come an Elijah moment of fire, and many will be surprised when they are consumed. This series will be going through key verses in the book of Revelation that show us what is happening in the world today to prepare us take the “mark” of the beast, that could be coming sooner than you think.
Thank you for taking the time to read this short lesson. There is an extensive effort being made to shorten the lessons on this website, for those who have time constraints in this crazy time. But please take note that one way that deception succeeds, is when no one has the time to read and study the Word of God. Thank you again for your prayers and encouragement. Hopefully, you will understand our heart of love to teach the Word of God to every nation. God Bless you and your family. We love you very much, and JESUS IS LORD, and is coming soon!
If you would like to continue reading in this Bible study series, please go to “Part 2” now.
(Ver 1.3) This is “Part 1” in a series of lessons on the subject of “Spiritual Warfare”. This is a new subject for me and a lesson designed for the benefit of those who have been attacked by Satan and do not understand why it has occurred or what to do about it to keep it from happeing again. Many new Christians are immediately attacked and persecuted because Satan wants to stop God’s Word from developing in their spirits and becoming mature and fruitful. New Christians are the most vulnerable and usually do not know what to do about this and do not generally understand why God even allows this to even happen to them. There are many complex factors involved in understanding this problem and I will attempt to at least give you an overview of what is happening in the spiritual realm and why it can occur and what you can do to overcome it.
Within any battle that we face it is always best to first recognize that we are in a battle. Not knowing that we are in spiritual battle is the number one reason why Christians do not fight the enemy. This is the basic fact that allows us to prepare and face this enemy that we cannot see with our physical eyes. Since we are born physical beings on this planet and we grow up dominated by our flesh realm senses we are forced to learn about the reality of spiritual things in order to become effective in this hidden unseen realm. Too often we find that our senses rule our world and guide our lives. If something hurts you physically you learn not to do that anymore. If something feels good or tastes good you learn to do that again. However there is an unseen part of you that is the real you and this being is your spirit inside your physical body. If you are a Christian this is where God resides also. The spirit world is more real than the natural world the Bible says. God tells us that the natural world is “temporary” and the things that are unseen in spiritual world are those that will be eternal (2 Cor 4:18). One of the first things that you need to understand is that we are in a spiritual battle and not a physical battle. People many times want to protest abortion clinics or homosexual events and act like this is doing some good. These people who are doing these ungodly things are just deceived individuals who are being guided by spiritual forces that are behind them. Therefore, your picket signs and protests are not doing anything to solve the real spiritual problem. It is like a doctor who is treating the symptoms and ignoring the cause of the disease. Your focus is on the wrong things.
2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
You can clearly see that God tells us that we are in a war. However God does not tell us that it is a physical war with guns and swords. We as Christians should be fighting this war differently than people in the world fight wars. This is the greatest deception that Satan has over many Christians, they are focused on external things and ignoring internal things. God tells us in this verse that “terrorism” is not our war as Christians. The United States has been in a war against terrorism for almost 10 years now. We will never win that war with guns. If you go and kill a few terrorist, there are soon 10 more to take their place. This is because of the spiritual forces that are backing them.
2Co 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;
God tells us that we have spiritual weapons of war at our disposal. However, God tells us that these weapons are clearly NOT physical weapons like guns. Your gun will not do you any good against a spiritual enemy that you cannot see. Satan has too many ways of fighting you supernaturally and no physical weapon will do you any good against these spiritual war techniques used by Satan. I recently heard about a man in the U.S. that was obtaining natural guns and weapons to help Jesus fight the devil when Jesus returns. This man’s ignorance of spiritual things will only make Christians appear as extremist fools to the world. Let me give you a scripture that informs us when this spiritual battle that I have been talking about begins.
Heb 10:32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
God tells us a key battle technique of Satan. Satan attacks you when you are the weakest and most vulnerable. Sometimes it appears to you to be seemingly overwhelming opposition and this is by design. Since new Christians do not understand why they are being attacked many times they give up and turn back to their old life styles and ways of thinking and then Satan has won. This verse in Hebrews tells us that a new Christian when first given “illumination” is attacked the hardest. This is when they are the weakest, simply because they do not know how to fight this enemy. Jesus tells us in Mark 4 that Satan comes immediately to steal the word of God from the hearts of people who have just heard the good news (gospel) of Jesus. By attacking them early and often with overwhelming force they are many times easily overcome. Mature Christians should be smart enough to know this and help new Christians overcome these attacks, but many Christians are too self-centered to see what is going on beyond their four walls. Ignorance is a Christian’s greatest weakness. Keep Christians ignorant and they will be no threat to Satan. Let’s research the spiritual weapons at our disposal in this battle that I mentioned earlier. I’ll begin with a verse Romans 13:
Rom 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
One of the other most important things to know is that there are two kingdoms of operation in our world today. This is the root of all spiritual battles that we face. There is the kingdom of darkness and the kingdom of light. These are the kingdoms of Satan and God respectively. As you can see God tells us in Romans 13:12 to put on the armor of light. Light is of the Day and darkness is of the night. I wrote a series of lessons on the subject of “Understanding Night and Day” and if you do not understand these spiritual kingdom concepts you should go and read them quickly. The weapons of Light are the spiritual weapons of our warfare being spoken of in this passage. It is important to realize that Christians are no longer within Satan’s kingdom of darkness, but yet we still war against this spiritual kingdom daily. When this transfer of spiritual kingdoms occurred was when you believed in Jesus Christ and confessed Him as your Lord as it stated in Romans 10:9-10. Because of the transfer of kingdoms we have a new ruler and Satan no longer rules our life unless we permit him or allow him to do so either intentionally or unintentionally. Being in the Kingdom of Light gives you new power over the kingdom of darkness. Light always conquers darkness in the natural realm but you need to learn how this works in the spiritual realm. We fight this kingdom of darkness in the spiritual realm by taking up God’s spiritual weapons of light which we will now get into in more depth:
Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
God again commands us (Christians) to put on His armor so that we can fight and win this spiritual battle that we are clearly in ALL together. I want you to go and read 1 John 1:5. This verse declares that God is Light and in Him is no darkness. Therefore when we put on God’s armor we are putting on the armor of Light. Do you understand this? Satan is the devil and the lord of the darkness that we are arrayed against and it is clearly not the people of this world that we fight against. However Satan does use people to get to us and we may talk about that in more depth in the future. This verse in Ephesians teaches s me why killing terrorist is not the complete answer to our evil problem in this world. You see God wiped out everyone in the world 4500 years ago in the flood of Noah except for 8 righteous people and because we still have Satan in the world, evil and wickedness is almost as great as it was in the days of Noah. However, do not make me out as a pacifist either. I believe that we must defend our country with guns and weapons at the same time that we use these spiritual weapons of God to attack the root causes of the problem. If you want to be a pacifist you will soon discover that evil doers will not be afraid of coming to your city to do you harm.
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.
Again God tells us very clearly that people are not the root cause of the evil problems that we face on the earth. God again tells us that the rulers of the darkness of this world are those that we are at spiritual war with. These are clearly spiritual enemies and not physical ones that we can perceive with our 5 senses. If you notice this verse says that we fight against the rulers of the darkness of this world. Those are simply Satan, his demons and the fallen angels that rule kingdom of darkness. I would also like you to notice the Greek word “powers”. This Greek word is G1849 and it literally means superhuman force or power. This is obviously not any natural or physical strength or power and must be considered to be a spiritual power of great ability. Not knowing that your spiritual enemy has any spiritual power is probably a good reason why Christian people are not fighting against him. If we keep reading in this chapter we find out what these spiritual weapons of light consist of that we are to put on to use against our spiritual enemy Satan:
Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness
The first weapon is the weapon of truth. This means you are at least required to learn the truth. Only by you knowing the truth, will you not be easily deceived. To know the truth is more involved than you just reading your Bible. It requires you studying the Bible and you digging into the deep things of God’s Word. You can very easily know some basic truths and not understand the more advanced things that will get you out of the jams that you are in right now. Learning always starts with reading, but study is necessary to gain understanding. Only by you gaining understanding can Satan never steal the truth that is in you. The next weapon on the list is called the “breastplate of Righteousness”. This first involves you knowing who you are in Christ. You need to go through your Bible and read the New Testament letters written to the church and see what you have and what you are in Christ. Christ is your Righteousness! It is only by His Righteousness that we have any righteousness. Go through the letters written to the church and learn and memorize the words that say “In Christ”, “In Whom” and similar words of association. This will help to identify your position and the free gifts of association being given to you as an heir of salvation.
Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Every weapon of our warfare if you haven’t noticed goes back to the Word of God in some form or fashion. God’s Words are always at the root of everything that we do, say and live. I think I said this already, but the spiritual battle is over the Word of God being resident in you. Look at this verse speaking of your feet. God says put the “Gospel of Peace” on your feet. The Bible tells me that God waits for His enemies to be made His footstool (Heb 1:13, Heb 10:13). Where are God’s feet in the earth today? These feet are in the Body of Christ who is the church and the spirit of God is within us. So if God is going to “bruise the head of the serpent Satan” with someone’s feet today, how is God going to do that?
Rom 16:20 And the God of Peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
This verse written to the Church informs us that it is our feet that God will use to bruise Satan’s head before Jesus returns for us. This implies we are to go out from this world as victorious. How is the God of Peace going to do this? Only by us putting the Gospel of Peace upon our feet will He do this. You can see that we are back to the Word of God again. The Gospel of Peace is certainly the Word of God being preached to the world. The message of salvation, the message of deliverance, the message of emotional and physical healing and the message of safety. These are key definitions of the Greek word “Sozo” (G2982) that is translated as “make whole”, “save”, “deliver” and “heal”.
Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
The next weapon in the Armor of Light is the shield of Faith. This is supposedly the most important weapon to defend off the satanic attacks. Faith is probably one of the top three subjects to study in the Bible in my opinion. But, what is Faith? Faith is based upon believing the Word of God. So we are again back to reading and studying the Bible. The Bible tells us that “Faith” comes by hearing and hearing comes by the Word of God” (Rom 10:17). When the devil attacks you God says you should be firmly grounded in the Word of God for all of your defensive armor of God. We can now look at the final two items found in the Armor of Light and one of these is the only offensive weapons we possess if you exclude the Gospel of Peace on our feet.
Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
To take the helmet of Salvation means to “receive” salvation which was freely given to us. I’ve aready told you the definition of “salvation” from the Greek. Again we are back to the basics of the Word of God. You heard the Gospel which was the Word of God preached for Salvation and you accepted it and believed the truth and now you are saved. Finally, the last weapon is called the Sword of the Spirit and this is plainly called the “Word of God”. You have to study the Bible to figure out what this means. Jesus said the “Words that I speak they are Spirit and they are Life” (John 6:63). So the words that Jesus spoke were the Sword of the Spirit from his mouth. In Revelation 1:16, 2:16, 19:15 and 19:21 Jesus is described as having a sword coming from His mouth that He uses to eliminate those that oppose Him in the end of the world. We can clearly understand that this symbolic sword represents the Words of God being spoken. To take the Sword of the Spirit in our armor means to speak what God has written in His book called the Bible. When you speak the Word of God your words carry the same power as if God spoke them. For example, if someone is coming against you in an attack, you could say “No weapon formed against me will prosper” (Isa 54:17). This is putting the Word of God in your mouth to counter what Satan is trying to do against you. You do not go up and say this to a human being, remember they are not your problem. You say this in the privacy of your home to Satan who is the root cause of the attack. Do you understand this?
Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
The very next verse in this context is also a key part to the successful spiritual fight that you are in. When immersing yourself in the Word of God you also pray the Word to get God’s wisdom and assistance on the matter you are facing. This next verse in Ephesians says “Praying Always”. That means never ceasing to pray. Pray when you study the Bible, and pray when you are not studying the Bible. There should not be a time during the day when you are not open to pray to God or open to hear from God. I have been doing a series of lesson on Angels and today I stopped that to answer a reader who was being attacked by Satan. But, there are multiple times in the Bible, where God sent angels only after people prayed. This means that if they had not prayed, there would have been no angels sent. I believe prayer is an essential part of your continuing relationship with God. This verse also places special emphasis on a particular type of prayer that is called “Praying in the Spirit”. This of course is not a popular subject in some churches in America and they have no clue what this even means. Some think it is just an extra praying with added emphasis, ability or time. However, this is not what it means. Praying in the Spirit is praying in tongues and if you have never done this you are missing out on one of the most powerful ways that God has to communicate through you the perfect will of God. You see God is smarter than you are and since you do not know everything and do not know how to pray perfectly in every situation that you face, God gives us a method that will never fail. You of course have the choice to not believe me and do it your way and remain at the level that you are at right now. However, if you want more of God and to know Him better, then ask Him to fill you with His Spirit and see if it does not radically change your life, like it did mine.
I guess that is enough for one day on how to counter the attacks of Satan. I know I did not cover everything in complete detail and I did not include everything that you should learn. However, I try to do the best that I can in the limited time and length format that I have. Please allow me to quickly recap the spiritual weapons of your warfare:
- The Belt of Truth (The Word of God is truth John 17:17)
- The Breastplate of Righteousness (Jesus the Word of God is our Righteousness)
- Gospel of Peace upon our feet (the Word of God given for our salvation)
- The Shield of Faith (Rom 10:17 Faith comes by hearing the Word of God, there get faith in God’s to build your shield).
- Helmet of Salvation (By grace ye are saved through faith Eph 2:8 again pointing us back to hearing God’s Word).
- Sword of the Spirit (plainly defined to be the Word of God).
- Praying in the Spirit.
Understanding that you are in a spiritual war is the first place that you need to arrive at. Understanding who your enemy is, is the next place to step up to. The next thing is for you to take up the armor of God that you has been given to you and make good use of it. The next thing that you should clearly understand is that the Battle is all about the Word of God. Satan is attacking you to take the Word of God from you. If he allows the Word of God to get in you, then you are an extremely dangerous person that can use this Word to come against him. Therefore, spiritual warfare is fought with spiritual weapons against a spiritual enemy. Finally praying is another key element to the spiritual fight that will allow you to be successful in life. I hope and pray that I have given someone out there some level of help in what they are facing in life today. It would be the greatest testimony of all if I can do that alone. God Bless!
(ver 1.7) This Part 1 in a series of Bible lessons about things that Satan does not want you know about him. Satan in the Bible is called by so many different names, titles, characteristics, symbols and descriptions. Each one of these that were given to us by God reveal Satan in a new way for us to learn from. For example, in Revelation 12:9 the name Satan is given to us and it is directly linked to be the symbolic “Great Red Dragon” in the book of Revelation. Satan is then further revealed as the “ancient serpent” in Genesis 3:1 in the same verse. Since Satan is called both the serpent in the garden in Genesis and now the Great Dragon in Revelation we learn from these two symbolic titles that he has gained significant power and strength. But maybe you did not know that and learned something brand new. In other places in the Bible Satan is also called the “deceiver” and the “father of lies” by God. If you wold like to see a more complete list of these Names, Titles, Descriptions and Symbols for Satan in the Bible you can go read that reference document and find those that I have been shown by God up until this point in time. Satan has had an explicit evil agenda in place ever since he deceived Eve and caused Adam to sin in the garden. Satan has implemented this plan based upon misconceptions and misdirection that diverts your attntion away from you finding or knowing the truth. There are a number of major things that Satan doesn’t want you to know about him. He tries very hard to keep these truths secret from you because they will cause you to think differently about your abilities and position in Christ Jesus. Today I’m going to tell you some of these guarded secrets that were revealed in the Bible for our benefit placed there by our wise and mighty God to help teach us the truth about our enemy.
1. Satan DOES NOT Want You To Know That He Exists
I know now as a Christian that Satan is a real spiritual being, but there was a time that I did not believe in his existence. Many people are in the exact same ignorant boat as I was when I did not believe in the existence of spiritual things. Unsaved people and even many new carnal Christians are generally very oblivious to spiritual realities, because they are consumed with natural things like drugs, alcohol, sex, money, power, fame, sports, food, music, and etc. Not only do most people in the kingdom of darkness not know that Satan, evil spirits, fallen angels and demons exist, they also do not understand that they themselves are also a spirit being that is simply living here on the earth in a natural physical body. Oh, sure there is a fascination in the world with the supernatural and spirits on TV, in movies and in video games. But these are generally put out by Satan as a distraction to the truth to keep people from finding out that he is real and to learn how he operates with them daily. Satan promotes these fictional TV shows, entertainments and activities to gain access into the minds of people to deceive them further from the truth. As long as you do not know that there is a real spiritual enemy in this world named Satan, you will never know that you need to resist him or fight against what he is doing in your life. We learn of the existence of Satan by reading the Bible and that is our only reliable source of any proof or evidence for his existence. If you do not believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God then you are in serious trouble looking for invalid sources of truth in the other books of the world. You can read about Satan’s existence and activities like in Mark 4:15, Luke 4:8, Luke 13:16 and Acts 26:18 to name only a few verses that teach of his existence. I pray that you learn to study this subject in order to learn that Satan does exist and that he is your enemy.
2. Satan DOES NOT Want You To Know How He Operates
Recently I wrote a Bible lesson on the subject Was There a Physical Talking Snake in the Garden of Eden that deceived Eve. If you read that lesson then you know that there was not a literal talking serpent in the garden. It is illegal for Satan to tempt people supernaturally and that is not how he generally operates because of the spiritual laws created by God. TV shows and movies that promote supernatural activity are created by Satan to be pure distractions to how he normally comes to us to operate. Satan uses, mostly mental thoughts, ideas and suggestions to influence and control your behavior. For example, if you have been having thoughts or ideas about suicide these are demonically inspired to try to get you to do what he is suggesting. The source of evil thoughts and these bad influential ideas are coming from Satan. Satan can even place strong desires within you to help guide you into doing wrong. These are very common ways of how spirit beings interact with any natural human being. I hope that you understand this because it will be the same for you.
The main emphasis from this section is to teach you to watch your thoughts. What I have been trying to say is that these evil thoughts in your mind to hurt someone are coming from Satan to attempt to get you do something that you shouldn’t. Have you ever considered how much people talk after a school shooting occurs about the factor of mental illness? Every crazy school shooter was caused by Satan’s barrage of evil thoughts to kill people. Every shooter was tormented by these thoughts until they finally gave into them. That is how Satan works and if you do not know this then you are at risk of the same. Satan comes to humans with thoughts of evil and these will always be very subtle attempts to control you to do what he wants you to do. I’ll say this again, every thought that you have is not from God or comes from your own mind. Let me give you a Bible verse that will help confirm this truth if you can see it:
2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Why would God tell a Christian to guard their thoughts if none of these came from Satan? That would not make any logical sense. Why does anyone guard something? Guarding the President is normally done to keep evil from coming near him to do him harm. This is the exact same concept that God is speaking of here in this verse. You see I once had a man leave me a comment on my Bible lesson about homosexuality and he said he had these thoughts for other boys and men since he was a young child and he said that this proved that God created him this way. I tried to tell him that these were Satan’ thoughts that were given to him to try to steer him away from the truth but he refused to listen to me. Any thought that is contrary to the Bible is from the devil. If you are standing on the top ledge of the Grand Canyon and you suddenly get the thought to jump off then it would be really stupid if you didn’t realize that this thought was from Satan and you did it and went to hell. Learn to do what God teaches about your negative thoughts of influence and cast them down.
3. Satan DOES NOT Want You to Know that He Can’t Be Everywhere At Once
In the Old Testament we have a greatly misunderstood book of the Bible called the Book of Job. I will not attempt to teach this book today, but I will draw out some valuable information that we can learn from it about Satan. In this story, Satan is said to appear before God in heaven. God asks Satan, where have you been? Right there that question teaches us an extremely critical fact about Satan. Perhaps you missed it? Satan’s reply to God was that he has been going to and fro across the earth and from walking up and down in it (Job 1:7). From the presence of God’s question and Satan’s reply we can learn so very much about our enemy. The first thing to learn is that Satan is not on the earth when he said this. The second thing to learn is that Satan is not everywhere all at once. In theological terms Satan is not omnipresent and cannot be everywhere at the same time like God can. If Satan has to travel from place to place on the earth then he can only be in one place at a time. That is interesting isn’t it? In the New Testament we get some further confirmation of this fact by reading:
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour;
You can see the same basic information being given to us in this verse. Satan is stalking about the earth looking for someone that he can attack. The statement implications being given to us is that he can’t attack everybody at the same time. You also see that he has to walk from place to place in order to seek for someone to attack. We can conclude from these two verses that Satan is not everywhere at once. Therefore Satan is NOT omnipresent like God is. Now having said all of that we don’t know how many demons and fallen angels that Satan has under his control. Revelation 12:4 tells us that 1/3 of the angels fell with him. But, we don’t know how many total angels there were to start with. From information found in Hebrews there seems to be a bunch of them and it calls their number innumerable. There is also a story in the Gospels where Jesus casts out a legion of demons from just one man. This shows us that one man can have hundreds of spirits in him at once. Therefore while the devil cannot be present with everyone at the same time, he can still send his demons to them and this makes him appear like he is everywhere at the same time. This is just some good information to learn about your enemy.
4. Satan DOES NOT Want You To Know That His Time Is Short
Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens and ye that dwell in them, Woe to the inhabitants 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.
This verse informs us that Satan is very angry with something or someone. Why? Because he knows his time is very short. Satan is aware of an end time. You did realize that, didn’t you? Many people in the world are oblivious that the end is near. They think everything has happened the same way from the beginning and everything will just continue on like this for ever (2 Peter 3:4). However, Satan and the demons are aware that their time is so very short. Here is a Bible verse that will help to see that the devils knew there was coming an end time even when Jesus was present on the earth:
Matthew 8:29 And behold, they cried out saying What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? are thou come hither to torment us before the time?
These are the words of the demons that possessed a man where Jesus was going. These demons exclaimed who exactly Jesus was. Why were they questioning Jesus’ right to be there? Then they ask him have you come to torment us before the time. What time are they talking about? It is amazing that these spiritual beings are aware that there is coming a time of torment. All of this occurs still today, men walk about clueless to the times and the seasons while Satan and his forces know that they are almost done.
5. Satan DOES NOT Want You To Know He Was Defeated
Colossians 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
We can see that Satan was defeated by what Jesus did on the cross. The blood of Jesus not only forgave our sins, it caused the defeat of Satan. The term spoiled is a military term when an army would take a city, they would take the wealth of the enemy and leave them with nothing of value. Genghis Kahn, Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Hitler, etc. we can go on and on, but the conquering army would always walk away with the wealth of those that were conquered. Here is an informative verse of scripture that also helps us to see what Jesus has done:
1 Corinthians 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
You see from this verse we can clearly see that Satan now has a major problem. Something that Jesus did, caused his status to change. Something that Jesus did in His death has doomed Satan and his followers and has set their destiny. Many Christians today have only seen a fraction of the things that Jesus accomplished on the cross. This is just another example of the fact that there are many things found in the Bible that we do not have the complete story on as of yet. We can make a broad conclusion, that based upon this verse that the death of Jesus Christ sealed Satan’s future.
So why if Satan was defeated, wasn’t he just thrown into the pit and that was the end of it? It is an interesting question, that most have never tried to answer. Satan has a right to be here as long as descendants of Adam have the right to be here. The world was given to Adam (Gen 1:26) and Adam gave it to Satan (Luke 4:5-6). So we in effect see a sub-lease being established. As long as Adam’s lease or time period is valid, Satan’s time period is valid. However, we also now know that this time period is now growing very short. If you have been reading my other Bible lesson you will already understand that the time period of human history was prophesied by God Genesis 1 to be approximately 6000 years. We can calculate that we are very, very close to the end of that time period right now. If you learned anything today, learn that Satan is a loser and if you are following him your time is very short to change your mind.
6. Satan DOES NOT Want You To Know That You Have Authority Over Him
Did you notice that earlier I quoted a scripture that said Satan was going about, seeking those who he could devour? Apparently he cannot come into your house and take everything from you unless you let him or permit him to do something to cause it to happen. If you could just find out what opens the door for the enemy to come in, I bet you would stop it. I don’t think I have a complete answer to that question, but I have seen at least part of the answer. We know sin, allows Satan access into our lives. Then in Hosea 4:6 it tells us that God’s people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge. So in effect we can see that ignorance or not knowing the right things, can allow Satan access into our lives. What else opens the door to the enemy? I believe that not knowing that you have been given authority over Satan will also allow him to come into your life to attempt to work his evil works. Here is what Jesus told us:
Luke 10:19 Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
If you don’t understand Biblical symbolism you will immediately get the wrong idea that you should be able to walk in a viper pit and not get bitten. But that is not what Jesus was talking about in this statement. Jesus is talking about the symbolic “serpent” that deceived Eve and that was literally Satan. The symbolic scorpions in this verse refers to the demons or evil spirits that are under Satan’s power. Understanding these symbolic references are essential to understanding the Bible correctly. Not everything in the Bible is literal. This verse tells us that Jesus gave us power over these evil spiritual forces. This word for “power” actually means “authority” or “legal jurisdiction” over these powers. The term translated as “power” of the enemy is a completely different Greek word that means “miraculous ability”. You learn from this verse that Satan still has ability to do some amazing things in the earth, but Jesus said I give you my authority over what he can do to you. You might not be able to stop what he does to your neighbor, but you can certainly stop what he does to you and your family. This spiritual authority must be exercised by your choice either during the attack or before the attack takes place. How do you do that? Maybe I’ll get into that in another lesson. Thanks for taking the time to read and study the Bible to learn about our enemy Satan. Share this spiritual knowledge with the poeple that you know and continue to walk in your new found knowledge from God. God Bless you!
If you would like to continue reading in this series, please go to “Part 2“.
(ver 2.6) This is “Part 1” in a series of advanced Bible lessons on the study of hidden spiritual subjects found in Genesis 3. In this lesson I am going to confront a popular misconception and misunderstanding found in the chapter. Was there a literal talking natural snake in the Garden of Eden? Did a naturally created snake approach, walk up to, or slither up to Adam and Eve and start a conversation with them to deceive them? I’m sure most of you have seen the paintings of the temptation, the naked man and woman holding an apple with the snake creature nearby. We’ve all heard this story taught this way in Sunday School as a child. However, is this what the Bible really says? Must we take every scripture, verse and word literally in the Bible? What if God intended the verse to hide a greater spiritual meaning? If so, then how would we know when to take something inspired by the most intelligent Spirit literally in the Bible and when to view it as only a symbolic reference, a figurative expression or even as a figure of speech? Please don’t misunderstand what I am saying. There are literal statements and stories in the Bible. The Genesis 3:1 account is a very true and real story of what actually happened during the fall of man. We just need to begin to understand what was actually given to us to read.
Too many Christians want to take everything written by God completely and totally as if the Bible was written in a school text book style with every truth obviously presented in a straightforward and plain ordered bullet point or numbered manner. But the problem is that the Bible is not a textbook and it contains many, many hidden mysteries, puzzles and concealed truths that are not self-evident on a surface only reading of the text. You can also find there are truths written on the same subject anywhere in the Bible from front to back, cover to cover, Genesis to Revelation. The Holy Bible is written in a multitude of literary styles by around 40 different men that were given the words by God to write for us to read, study and learn from. God purposely hid many of these truths, not from us, but for us to find (Prov 25:2). So here is the divine challenge, how does God encode secrets for someone to find without using a standard encryption system that makes the text totally useless? The government encrypts information to keep it out of the hands of other enemy governments. Web sites encrypt credit card and customer information to keep it out of the hands of hackers and criminals. What we can learn from this principle is that God obviously had an enemy that was trying to steal information and use it against us. Therefore, I believe based upon scripture that God has encoded within the natural text message a spiritual message within so that He could reveal it by His Spirit in us His people at the appropriate time, which I believe is now. I call this technique, God hiding the truth in plain sight.
THE CREATED SET CALLED BEASTS OF THE FIELD!
So the question remains was there a literal physical talking snake in the garden of Eden? I’ll have to tell you right now that there is absolutely no way based upon rightly understanding scriptures that I have found in the Bible that there was a physical talking snake in the garden. You can clearly see where I stand upon this issue so let’s find out why I am a firm believer in this. Here is what the beginning of Genesis 3:1 says to us, read it very carefully and then I’ll explain it.
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field that 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 am only going to be focusing on the first phrase of the verse in this Bible lesson. But I did give the entire verse to help avoid criticism from those that would like to criticize and find fault. Let’s begin by doing some close analysis of the exact wording or phrasing of this initial statement “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field that the Lord God had made”. You should be able to understand from reading the entire verse that the primary subject of the verse is a “serpent”. This Hebrew word is H5175 and does mean “a snake” in the literal definition and this is why people begin to believe that God is speaking of a literal talking snake in Genesis 3. This Hebrew word being translated as “serpent” is used 31 times in the Old Testament and is found in 28 verses with 5 references being found within 5 verses of Genesis 3. But let’s change the perspective in order to see the characteristics of this “serpent” being described by God and maybe this new knowledge will begin to change how we think.
Now observe that this “serpent” is stated to be more subtle than “any beast” of the field that the Lord God had created. I want to focus upon the Hebrew word H6175 which is translated as “subtle” in Genesis 3:1. The Hebrew word translated as subtle means “cunning” in an evil, negative or bad manner. The ESV and NASB versions of the Bible translated this word as “crafty”. The CEV Bible translated it as “sneaky”. The Young’s Literal Bible translate it as “subtile”. This Hebrew word is clearly represents an evil connotation being applied to this class of being labeled or named as the “serpent”. Right there that should raise some red flags in our minds to teach us something that is very important. How did God create every beast (living) animal on this planet? Didn’t God create the beast of the field and say that they were all “good” in Genesis 1:25 and “very good” in Genesis 1:31? Good is not evil and very good is definitely not anything that is bad. There were no evil connotations placed upon any of the created beings found in Genesis 1, so that is something brand new for us to consider and learn from. It would contradict with Genesis 1 if this was a created literal snake in the Garden of Eden. I hope and pray that you can see that but we also need to learn what else this verse is saying or should I say is not saying.
This is what the Holy Spirit said to me when I studied the verse and it changed my entire perspective dramatically when I saw it and fully understood it. I read this verse and suddenly the still small voice of the Holy Spirit asked me this question, “Did you notice that didn’t say ‘other‘?”. Almost immediately I knew what He was asking me because of divine revelation. When I studied Geometry in High School, I remember a part of the class dealt with the subject of mathematical “sets” and “set theory”. Do you understand what a “set” is? A set is a grouping of related items. Let me give you a more complete definition of a set. A set is “a well defined collection of distinct objects. The objects that make up a set (also known as the elements or members of a set) can be anything: numbers, people, letters of the alphabet, other sets, and so on.” Within mathematical sets you can also have subsets. Then you can have multiple sets with some common or overlapping members that are in more than one set. For example, a set could be Animals, under that set could be a subset of mammals, under that set could be a subset of birds, fish, land animals and on and on. Each set or subset is a grouping of related items. In other words every member of the set has the same characteristics and can be easily identified as belonging to the group. So why did I just spend so much time going through all of that math explanation and set theory overview? Do you see it? Was the primary noun serpent of this sentence a created beast of the field that the Lord God declared a member of the set of created beings of the field defined by God to be very good? I’d like to ask you a question and I want you to consider it with great thought. What would change if God would have added the word “other” to the verse? Read this modified verse with the word other added and observe what changes:
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any ‘OTHER’ beast of the field that the Lord God had made.
Now do you see it? What comprises the set “beasts of the field”? What are the members of that set? Beasts of the field would be the superset of all created animals, birds, reptiles, etc. Isn’t a natural and physical snake one of those beasts of the field that the Lord God has made? So what happens when you take out the word “other” like the verse really says. The logical conclusion has to be that the serpent was not a member of that category of the made or created creatures of the field. Let me teach it to you like this, if the adjective “any” is placed before the noun “Beasts” we have to conclude that there are no beasts omitted from this grouping. The Hebrew term (H3605) translated as the English word”Any” is an “all inclusive” statement that omits none of them. The Hebrew word translated as “Any” literally means “All” or “EVERY”. By God NOT putting the word “Other” after the word “any” we know concretely that the referenced “serpent” in the beginning of the statement was not a member of that set of created living creatures. In other words, there was no physical literal created talking snake based just upon the correct reading, understanding and interpretation of this verse. I hope and pray that you understand basic logic and math laws and how they apply to the correct interpretation of the Word of God. God is a highly intelligent being and has designed and implemented the Bible using Laws that we must follow in order to correctly understand what is written.
NATURAL OR SUPERNATURAL TEMPTATION?
So let’s find some other scriptures that help us to confirm what God has just taught you by the omission of the word “other”. Here is one verse that I know most don’t immediately associate with Genesis, but it is related even though you’ve never seen it or applied it to what we have just read in Genesis 3:1.
1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation overtaken you but such as is common to man:
What is God’s primary subject that is occurring in the beginning of Genesis 3? What is the initial theme of Genesis 3? Some say that Genesis 3 is about the fall of Man, but what happened before that. Before the fall there was a state of everything being created good without sin on the earth. Then Satan appears and does what? Of course we are talking about the “temptation” of Adam and Eve by the serpent or Satan, right? So what did God just teach us about the subject of human “temptation” in 1 Corinthians? This is another law or principle of correct Bible interpretation, the Bible always interprets itself. So you must go and search the Bible for related scriptures that help to explain what is written in the Old Testament.
In 1 Corinthians God says every time we (humans) are tempted by the enemy (Satan) it is a common human occurrence. The Greek word that was translated as “common to man” is G442 and it means “after the manner of men”. In other words any satanic temptation is one that is a natural temptation, meaning it is NOT a supernatural temptation. Did you realize that according to what God has just written in His word that it is illegal for Satan to tempt you supernaturally? What is a supernatural temptation? That would be any temptation that did not occur naturally by created design or created laws or any temptation of a non-created material substance or nature. Have you ever seen a talking snake? If you can find me one I would love to see it and this would provide the evidence to support a literal talking snake in the garden being the tempter. Seeing talking snakes in the past and today would make this type of temptation a common occurrence for man. However, I’ve been to many zoos and if there were any talking snakes, I didn’t see them. No you see a talking snake would be a supernatural temptation, a non-common human temptation occurrence and that would cause God’s word in 1 Corinthians 10:13 to become a lie. Since God does not lie I have to conclude there was still no literal talking snake in the garden.
We can therefore reason with great confidence that a talking snake being a tempter would be an illegal supernatural act and if Satan can’t tempt you this way, then he can’t tempt Eve that way either. This scripture is an example of a universal truth. In other words this scripture applies across the board to every person in the human race at any given time within human history. There are some scriptures that only apply to the natural nation of Israel; there are some scriptures that only apply to men; there are some that written to only women; there are some that are written only to the church and others that are written to other groups or sets of people. However, there are also those scriptures like this one that will apply to everyone equally. This is a verse that is in the Universal set of Truth. These represent spiritual laws and God enforces these. The Bible says God watches over His words to perform them and this would be an example.
HOW DOES SATAN TEMPT SOMEONE TODAY?
Have you ever been tempted by Satan? Sure you have whether you admit it or not. How did he come to you and try to tempt you? Did Satan have to manifest himself in the body of an animal to tempt you? Of course he didn’t. Satan when he comes he speaks in your mind, by using your thought life to tempt you to do something that you shouldn’t, or to say something you that you shouldn’t, or whatever. If Satan tempted you this way, then he tempted Eve this way also. Do you think we can find any scripture to confirm this? Of course we can if we look:
2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty , so your minds be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
It is amazing what the Bible says when you look for it, understand it and apply it to Genesis 3 interpretation correctly. You see this verse is written to the church and it said Eve was deceived by the serpent, because of his trickery. But did you notice how he did it? This temptation occurred in Eve’s mind and it was not carried out by a talking supernatural snake in the garden. How can we further confirm this? Ask yourself was there ever any mention in Genesis 3 of Adam hearing the snakes voice? If you read closely you will observe that God rebukes Adam for hearkening to the voice of his wife and never mentions the voice of the serpent to Adam. Was not Adam standing next to Eve in the garden? If there was a literal talking snake present then there would have been an audible voice for Adam to also hear. I really believe that Bible need to learn to read and see what is there and what is not there and quit adding tot he words to make them say something that they do not say. We have just learned from God’s commentary on the story of Genesis 3 that whatever Satan said to Eve was a thought in her mind and this caused her to be deceived. Satan is still the same subtle deceiver today and he works and operates in the exact same way that he has always worked. He tries to deceive you through the same avenues of your mind. This verse clearly warns the church to watch their thoughts in order to keep Satan from corrupting their minds. That is why we are instructed in the Bible in this way:
2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imagination and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
Apparently our minds are still the battle ground for the attacks of the enemy and we are responsible to police this mental realm and exercise our authority to keep the enemy out of there. Because preachers and teachers believe that Satan had to borrow the body of a physical snake in order to manifest himself in the earth, they think this is the only way he can communicate to you. We have clearly seen that this is not the case using the Bible. Eve was clearly deceived in her mind; you can also be deceived in your mind if you let him operate there. God tells us what to think on in the Bible, perhaps you should go and search for them and learn to keep only those things in your mind.
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF SATAN ENTERED AN ANIMAL’S BODY?
I think now would be a good time to introduce you to another set of scriptures that is certainly related to our subject study. If Satan had to borrow the body of a literal physical snake in order to manifest himself to Adam and Eve, what would happen if he actually did this? According to the Bible it is not a positive outcome for the natural snake. You can see in the Gospel where Jesus when He walked the face of the earth and came across a man who was possessed of devils in Matthew 8. The devils started to talk to Jesus and asked Jesus if they could go into the bodies of the herd of swine that were nearby. Jesus said Go! The devils went out of the men and went into the nearby natural animals. Then what happened to the animals?
Mat 8:32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.
Apparently animals are aware when evil spirits enter into them. Did you see this? The animals were driven mad and committed suicide. After the suicide the evil spirits had no living bodies to possess, so they went about looking for another human to deceive. Did you learn anything from this story? Did you see how it applies to Genesis 3:1? Yes it is confirmed that a spirit being can enter into a body of even a snake but we must conclude from what was just presented that the snake would not have been a willing participant to the possession. God gives us clues like this in the Bible and we are required to put the clues together in order to understand what is being said. What we have learned is that even animals have a sensitivity to spiritual beings. Sometimes I think that animals are more sensitive than many people about pending disasters. Cats and dogs can sense earthquakes before they happen. Animals around the coast line ran to higher ground before the tsunami killed so many people a few years ago. Do not assume or think that any animal will just allow a devil to come into them and use them without them knowing about it. This is just another reason I do not believe there was a physical talking snake in the garden.
IS THE SERPENT LITERAL OR SYMBOLIC?
Now there is a major problem being presented for those who want to take every scripture literally. You see the problem is that the serpent must be a purely symbolic reference for a spiritual being that was not directly named or identified in the book of Genesis at all. You see I have been talking like you already knew that they serpent was Satan throughout this Bible study, but I have offered no Biblical proof to confirm this fact. How do we know that the “serpent” was Satan and not a literal talking created snake? I state the serpent was Satan based upon where else the serpent is mentioned in scriptures. God gives us the definition of the serpent in the last book of the Bible. You do understand that God is the author of the entire Bible, don’t you? You do understand that God can give new information for the same subject found in Genesis wherever He desires to, don’t you? You see God uses a symbolic serpent to describe Satan in several places in the Bible but I will only give you two verses that identifies the serpents real name to us very clearly:
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, the 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.
Rev 20:2 And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years,
We can see from these verses in Revelation the true identity of the symbolic “old serpent” is revealed to us to be Satan, the deceiver. These verses also contain another symbolic reference and calls Satan the “great dragon”. Apparently Satan’s strength and ability has increased substantially as the symbolic dragon at the end to a level greater than he possessed at the beginning as the symbolic serpent. You can clearly see why God selected to use symbolic references in both places of the Bible. By comparing these two symbolic references we can gain additional information about this unseen spiritual enemy named Satan. What I am doing is attempting to teach you that God reveals the true identity of the symbolic “serpent” found in Genesis 3:1. You can see two times in Revelation 12:9 and Revelation 20:2 that the “serpent” is a symbolic reference for the devil called Satan. If the “serpent” is not literal here in these verses there is NO legitimate way for the “serpent” to be literal in Genesis either. So we just learned a valuable lesson, of why we can’t take everything in the Bible literally. We have also learned that we can’t study any book of the Bible independently in a vacuum. We must always use the Bible to interpret the Bible! We must see what God’s says about the subject we are studying in the Old Testament in the other places of the New Testament, because He always provides additional information, explanations and definitions that are critical for us to see in order to correctly understand what was being taught.
I have just given you at least 4 good reasons why the Bible says there was no literal physical talking snake in Genesis 3:1. These are not all of the reasons that I could have presented but there were enough reasons why I can say with great confidence that there was no physical talking snake in the Garden of Eden! I thank you for you time and comments. Be blessed in the Lord and continue in the pursuit of the knowledge of His Word. Until the next lesson please tell your friends about what you have learned from God.
