Jesus Christ came to 'Set US Free' from the chains of sin and the lies of the enemy; He came to open the prison to them that are bound and even though His Kingdom is 'NOT' of this world; His LIGHT and TRUTH is setting hundreds of millions free from the spiritual darkness that the 'Prince of this World' has blinded most human souls with !!! GOD ALMIGHTY most certainly did 'NOT' abandoned us human beings to be finished off by Satan and multitudes of fallen Angels and demons; Jesus Christ sent us thee most powerful force in all the three Heavens and in this entire Universe : THE HOLY SPIRIT for greater is He that is in us, that he that is in the world !!!
- Luke 4 : 18 and Isaiah 61 : 1 & John 18 : 38 and Acts 1 : 8
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. - Book of Revelation 21 : 7
Yes, GOD created Adam and Eve you me and billions+ of human beings on the very same planet that He had temporarily thrown thee most : wicked, rebellious and outright unholy fallen Angels in all of this Universe !!! Yes, life may seem unfair 'BUT' GOD is still good !!! This imperfect vessel of GOD does 'NOT' understand every single reason of why GOD chose to sovereignly do 'this and that' but i trust that GOD has very good reasons and i Bless His Holy name !!! GOD could most certainly could have wiped out Satan; all the Fallen Angels, demons and all the rebellious human beings from this planet long ago and from existence itself if He so sovereignly would have chosen to, 'BUT' in His great mercy He saw something worth redeeming in this rebellious planet, for even before even the foundation of the world the Lamb of GOD had been slain so that whosoever calleth upon the name of the LORD in repentence would be saved !!! While Jesus Christ already totally defeated Satan at the Cross of Calvary; GOD still expects you & me to fight the 'Good Fight' to be 'Faithful Servants' & to endure until the end, for only those who endure until the end shall be saved -Matthew 24 : 13
Once upon a time and a very, very long time ago in eternity past 'BEFORE' GOD ever created planet earth and time itself began on this planet; before men invented calendars and clocks and even before the very 'Foundation of this World' ( Revelation 13 : 8 ) GOD enjoyed a great communion and fellowship with myriads upon myriads ( fancy synonym for 'millions upon millions' * ) of all different types of Angels !!! ( Seraphims, Archangels, Cherubims, Angels etc...) Theologians have classified 9 different ranks of Angels; -Ephesians 6 : 12 & Colossians 1 : 16*) that GOD created before He created human beings in the Garden of Eden via Adam and Eve. This student of Theology knows that Angels preceded Adam and Eve; eons upon eons in 'eternity past' very simply because they most certainly were 'NOT' created alongside of Adam in the Garden of Eden, nor were they created on this planet and in our time period in eternity because the Book of Job reveals to us that they were celebrating outside of earth time before our understanding of a 24 hour day even began ! ( it is the insignificant opinion and observation that WE humans are all WRONG about how time in ETERNITY works !!! This servant of Jesus Christ believes in Genesis account of 6 days of creation 'BUT' it is rather obvious that the 3rd Heaven was already long in existence before GOD Almighty created 'light and life' down here in these parts of His heavens, some believers are teaching that absolutely NOTHING existed before Genesis 1, and inferring that GOD and His Angels were existing in the darkness of intergalactic space beforehand !!! )
This student of Bible Prophecy and Theology writes today's 'ARTICLE' not so much to glorify the enemy of our soul 'BUT' to expose his 'MANY' limitations !!! Satan is a created being just like us; he is 'NO' god and according to all the Holy Scriptures the Biblical evidence seems to indicate that Lucifer's rebellion did 'NOT' take place in the 3rd Heaven; the Book of Isaiah confirms to us that Lucifer desired to ascend into that 3rd part of Heaven ( Isaiah 14 : 13 ) 'BUT' GOD would have none of that !!!
Satan should most certainly 'NOT' be underestimated by any believer; before you and I were even born on planet earth; Lucifer was able to DECEIVE 'millions upon millions' of Angels who had a very much higher IQ than you and me !!! Here on earth, Satan managed to deceive the very first human inhabitants of this planet and according to the Book of Revelation he too successfully manages to DECEIVE the vast majority of 'BILLIONS' of human beings during the Tribulation period !!!
This weeks article is part of a series that this student of Bible Prophecy has been researching for many years, many great servants of GOD that have preceded us have left us great insights of the 'Spiritual World' that we inhabit and this student of theology is just trying to put another single piece into that giant 'LIKE' Jigsaw Puzzle to try and better understand where we human beings all are in eternity. It is not that the Holy Scriptures themselves don't already reveal to us the reality of the great 'Spiritual World' that we human beings inhabit its that it is imperative that all believers understand that Satan is getting ready to launch his final DECEPTIVE and DEMONIC 'Signs and Wonders'
upon most of the unsuspecting world in these end times and we should all be cautioned that 'NOT' all 'Signs and Wonders' are from GOD nor from His HOLY SPIRIT !!!
Like we stated many years ago if you have been reading our articles, it is rather obvious and evident that GOD in His sovereignty chose to create Adam and Eve amidst and in the middle of an ongoing war between Satan; the Fallen Angels and Michael and the majority of Angels that are still very loyal and obedient to GOD who did 'NOT' rebel against their creator !!!...This 'Puny human being' with his little brain in "NO" way claims any special revelation on this topic 'BUT' it just seems rather obvious to him that GOD could of very easily have created us 'later on in eternity' when all the WAR between Satan and Michael was all over; GOD was absolutely under 'NO' time constraints !!! Yes, GOD our CREATOR in His sovereignty chose to create us and put us in the very same planet where Satan and a 3rd part of the Fallen Angels had been 'Temporarily' cast down into before they are fully thrown into the everlasting fire that is being prepared for the devil and his unholy Angels ( Matthew 25 : 41 )
Satan has been perfecting his great deception through the ages 'BUT' without any doubt he has greatly deceived the vast majority of human beings through 'False Religious Systems' that do not teach nor require anyone to be 'BORN AGAIN' religions such as : Buddhism, Islam and Roman Catholicism; which claim billions+ of followers and adherents and according to the Book of Revelation; Satan is going to be allowed to deceive/ test yet more billions of humans that will be born during the Millenium too !!! According to population experts, the population of this planet 200 years ago was only one billion; in 200 years the population of this planet has grown to 7+ billion; if we consider these figures around 20+ billion human beings could easily be born during the Millenium; thus making even the end of the Millenium when Satan will loosed once more even more a bigger DECEPTION of human souls than even during the Great Tribulation !!! ( Revelation 20 : 7 )
This born again believer in Jesus Christ is 'NOT' one who believes that there is a demon behind every rock; as a mature believer I know that Satan can 'NOT' be everywhere at once like GOD our OMNIPRESENT Creator !!! Additionally, i'm not into the study of demons nor is this student of Theology here to magnify the wickedness of all the Fallen Angels !!! In any 'WAR' it is imperative that one study the enemy and what one is up against; we human beings were created in the middle of a war zone and whether one chooses to or not to believe in the Holy Bible and in the existence of Satan and all his evil the 'Blunt Truth' is that something very unholy inhabits this planet alongside us human beings !!! We are most definitely 'NOT' an experiment of GOD, nor were we created to be like 'Bait' for Satan and all the Fallen Angel's down here with us !!! GOD very obviously set up many, many rules against what Satan can and can 'NOT' do to us human beings. We know 'Biblically Speaking' that GOD has a 'supernatural hedge' around those who fear and honor His name ( Job 1 : 10 ) and we also know that GOD has assigned Angels around all those who fear Him !!! ( Psalm 34 : 7 and Matthew 18 : 10 )
Satan deceives most of the : Wall Street brokers, the International Bankers and all those who worship Mammon that the accumulation of wealth is the purpose of life, he deceives most famous artists into believing that Fame is the ultimate high, he deceives most ambitious politicians into believing that 'the end justifies the means' as they seek political power at all costs; he whispers in their ears do unto others before they do unto you !!! Satan deceives the biologist and the microbiologist into believing that every living thing evolved out of a 'Big Bang' despite the evidence that very complex design 'shouts and screams' of a great engineer and designer : GOD !!! Satan deceives over 3+ billion hard core Buddhists, Muslims and Roman Catholics into believing that religious rituals can make us right with our Creator; while the HOLY BIBLE teaches otherwise; that 'ONLY' through JESUS CHRIST can anyone go to the Father !!!
When the Communists took power in Russia and in China they virtually outlawed all religion and indoctrinated in their mandatory governmental schools that men had basically created GOD. The Communist Party and leadership in both the Soviet Union, China and North Korea ( just to give some key examples*) in reality became the new 'god of the people.' !!! Communists claim that 'Religion is the Opium of the People' but when they took over in Russia and China it is estimated that over 100+ million people died because of their political purges and man-made famines !!! John Lennon's 'IMAGINE' has proven false in this 'Fallen Planet' Communists attempted to produce a world where no social classes existed yet the overwhelming historical evidence indicates that they themselves soon began to distance themselves from the majority of the populace, the Communist Members of both the Soviet Union and China began very early on to 'ENJOY' privileges that most of their 'COMRADES' most certainly did 'NOT' !!! ( Like access to special stores, party favors, better residences, vacations etc...)
Sometimes this believer feels that all of this is somewhat unfair and that he ( we all too ) was kind of like 'pushed out of an airplane' with just a parachute and forced to survive on this Fallen Planet replete with : Death, Demons, Fallen Angels, numerous diseases and Satan himself !!! "BUT" as a mature Christian this unworthy servant of Jesus Christ acknowledges that GOD our CREATOR in His sovereignty does as He pleases and that one day HE is going to more than make it all to all of us who BELIEVED in His WORD and in His only begotten son : YESHUA : JESUS CHRIST !!!
As this servant of GOD studies the Fall of Satan; it is becoming somewhat obvious that for Satan to have deceive 'One Third' of the Angelic hosts it must have taken him a very long time; and 'IF' history is any guide it appears that just like GOD has allowed Satan some 7000 human earth years to deceive billions of human beings; GOD also allowed an extended period of time in eternity ( Pre-earth Time*) for Satan's rebellion to totally run its course from the 2nd Heaven to this heaven !!! ( Most Theologians agree that it appears that Satan was 'NOT' able to deceive much higher in rank Angels than him like a Seraphim; Lucifer himself was a Cherubim according to the Book of Isaiah*)
This born again believer does 'NOT' believe that the Holy Scriptures are mere ancient 'Hebrew Fables' full of ancient symbolisms; like most University Literature Professors would like you to believe !!! Mario Romano personally believes that 'SATAN' is all too real and is as real as the HOLY BIBLE reveals to us all !!! It is 'ONLY' by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT that we are able to overcome all the wiles of the devil and his unholy agents; GOD established unbreakable spiritual rules and laws that 'NOT' even Satan nor anyone of his fallen angels are allowed to break and if and should they try they will be greatly punished like the Fallen Angels who are locked up in special prisons ( Jude 1:6 ) Satan and the Fallen Angels are like in some type of 'PROBATION' period here on planet earth, Satan still has some limited access to GOD ( Revelation 12 : 10 and Job 2 : 1 ) there is no question that planet earth is like some type of an 'Alcatraz Prison Planet' to Satan and all the Fallen Angels 'BUT' in Satan's case there is no redemption; the destruction and deception that Satan has inflicted in two heavens is amazing; Lucifer used his GOD given talents and abilities for evil & he single handedly created & perfected the lie ! ( John 8: 44 )
By : Mario Romano, "NO" other book on planet earth; 'Secular or Religious' in nature EXPOSES Satan as does the HOLY BIBLE inspired by GOD our CREATOR !!! This servant of Jesus Christ has 'ONLY' been able to overcome to this day only by the grace of GOD and by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT !!! It is only by : obedience, prayer, fasting, living in holiness and the indwelling of the HOLY SPIRIT that we are able to OVERCOME all that the enemy and accuser of our souls attacks us with !!! This servant of Jesus Christ has learned 'NOT' to complain, sometimes we think we have it 'BAD' but when I read and study of what the enemy of our soul did to Job and the unholy things that he still does to many unsuspecting people who have 'NO' 'Spiritual Protection' because they don't abide in the WORD of GOD; Mario has learned to give thanks DESPITE the temporary challenges of this temporary world !!! GOD our CREATOR is very, very good; He only asks for obedience more so than sacrifices ***
