In part two
of the blast Satan Has a Plan, we discussed how this world and her systems are a virtual prison
for God's creation. The only way out is death! Much of mankind is actually happy with the world however, as her pleasures
make their bondage seem worthwhile. They may be hopelessly bound in addiction
for instance, but partying and an exciting nightlife make their bondage worth its grief in their minds and hearts. Man can be completely upside down in debt
, but content with the new home and fancy car
. People are in bondage
to jobs they hate just to keep their children in good schools. Unfortunately they are taught the world's knowledge
, learn to succeed in this society to end up in the same bondage themselves. It's all a part of Satan's plan to assimilate man into his culture
where he has control of their lives and they fall for it, have even helped it evolve! The world calls it, “living the dream
”! To those set free by truth they are “living a nightmare”! To Satan they are “living his plan
Ephesians 6:12 speaks of the world's supernatural citizens.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (they have much to do with human affairs).
1 And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters.
2 And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children' (a mixed species resulted).
8 And they have gone to the daughters of men upon the earth, and have slept with the women, and have defiled themselves, and revealed to them all kinds of sins.
9 And the women have borne giants (offspring of the rebellious angels, a cross between man and angels), and the whole earth has thereby been filled with blood and unrighteousness (all of creation was affected).
Enoch 15:8-12 now clarifies who the enemy mentioned in Ephesians 6 is.
8 And now the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling.
9 Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men, and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called.
10 As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth, which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling (as a side note, you can see man does not go to heaven either as is taught by so much of the church, they were created for earth and born here).
11 And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offenses (they need bodies to function through, so they possess man).
12 And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women because
they have proceeded from them.
1 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me (Jesus), because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor (tell the oppressed there is a way out); He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives (set free from the bondage of this world), and the opening of the prison to those who are bound (to this society and the world's systems);
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God (Satan will be chained in the abyss for all he has done and the wicked that live his lifestyle destroyed); to comfort all who mourn (there will be an end to this mess),
3 To console those who mourn in Zion (God's government), to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord (God refers to trees as beings. This helps explain the Tree of good and evil and the Tree of Life doesn't it), that He may be glorified.” (God had a plan to restore a race of mankind that will be His victory over the enemy!)
Jesus verified He was the fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy in Luke 4:17.
17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
He read the prophecy at Isaiah 61:1-3 and then …
20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
21 And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” (Christ was here and God's plan for restoration accelerated.)
6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both< b> man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
How very sad. Think about how it must have made God feel to watch His perfect children
become an altered species
, different from what He created them to be. Then He watched them build a world
He knew would corrupt their children and bring harm to the rest of His creation. Bottom line, a world was brought into being that replaced His Kingdom
. A world fashioned by evil spirits.
15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
Jesus, the Word of God
, allowed the enemy, the father of the lie
, to crucify Him, all a part of the plan of God
. Let the lie try to conquer the Truth! It can't happen
! He rose to an eternal life from the grave a new creature after the order of Melchizedek
to become the Father of a new race of people
! These Ones would die in His death at baptism
and rise through His resurrection in His image
and enter into His blood covenant
to become flesh of His flesh
, bone of His bone
! Not a part of the mixed race of man and angels, but hybrid seed
, no longer able to be corrupted by another species
. As Eve was taken from the side of Adam
so the church glorious
was birthed out of the side of the last Adam
through the living waters of truth and the blood of the covenant
. This, unknown to the enemy, was all planned before the foundation
of the world. All the I wills he decreed would come to nothing
! Man can now die in baptism to the altered race, resurrect a new creature and metamorphose through the knowledge of God
released in this end time to a new species! These form the body of Christ for Him to enforce His victory to earth
. The enemy sure wasn't planning on this! The control he has over man
is shattered! Sure, he can still cause circumstances, because man is in his world, but he cannot control the new species
themselves. Their life is in God, they are clothed in Christ, they are His body
Enoch explains in Enoch 69:11,
11 For men were created exactly like the angels, to the intent that they should continue pure and righteous, and death, which destroys everything, could not have taken hold of them: but through this their knowledge they are perishing, and throughthis power it is consuming me.
Hard to believe they traded the knowledge of a self-existing God
, His spoken Word
that sustains the universe
, for the twisted thinking
of a rebellious creature that God Himself fashioned without the ability to create anything. He is limited in every way
because of his unrighteous thinking and the twisted ideas that have evolved or progressed from it. You see God can speak things into being, so we could say He created all things through an oath
or His Word. Since He created all things, everything is governed by His sovereignty. Unlike Satan, unlike man, God cannot lie so His word will never come back void. All is preserved and nothing destroyed or out of harmony
that is governed by, and a part of, His oath. It is law
. If God says it, it is so! For instance, when God said, “Let there be light” there was! Within His oath is guaranteed love, joy, peace, health, happiness, complete shalom
. These wonderful promises
were spoken as blessings over God's children as well as all they were given dominion over so they will be! Satan, the fallen angels
, Adam and Eve stepped outside of the spoken word
, out of the oath, made their own futile ones and the history of man
, this world, and the rebellious angels are evidence of what happens when the created being breaks the law of God
, ignores His oath and believe in their own lies. So it is today.
II Thessalonians 2:10-12
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved (they believe in their own wisdom, trusted in their intellect based on the world's knowledge).
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,
12 that they all may be condemned (condemned means damned) who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Satan's oaths, his claims, his decrees are empty, barren, dead works, hollow in meaning and as stated before he is lacking or devoid of the creative ability to bring his oaths to fruition.
See God said in I Corinthians 1:19,
19 For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent (the enemy doesn't stand a chance).”
So all his plans and schemes are futile! God prophesied through Isaiah concerning the world's masterminds.
14 Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work among this people, a marvelous work and a wonder; for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.”
The world's knowledge will disappear from the minds of man. There will be no remembrance. Man as well as the spirits that oppose God and His people will lose in the end.
The world they masterminded to suit their lifestyles will therefore cease to exist also.
I John 2:17 says,
17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
II Peter 3:10
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth (world) and the works that are in it will be burned up.
Please understand the word “world” and the word “earth” are the same number in the Strongs dictionary, 8398 and 776. A better translation would have been world instead of earth in this scripture for continuity with other scriptures such as Ecclesiastes 1:4 and Psalm 104:5.
In closing, let us go back and read Isaiah 14:13-14 one more time.
13 For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’
That is the voice, the oath of the father of the lie! We now see he is the force responsible for everything evil that has happened to man? Do we see his plan? Do we understand his tactics? Do we see the need for us to cry out to God to set unsuspecting humanity free from the world and her mentors?
As our final scripture let us read Revelation 22:12-15.
12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. (whose Kingdom are you building?)
13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life (to be perfected as in the beginning), and may enter through the gates into the city (Sion and New Jerusalem).
15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie (Satan's best friends, his human family).
Yes, Satan has a plan, but so does our God!
