I know that people are making a huge deal out of this miniseries, but the book has been around since 1953. In reality, this is a sci-fi miniseries based on Clarke’s book and from what I have seen and read, there is nothing connected to the Bible except the imagery that makes Karellen appear to be like the devil in the way he looks. In the end, take away the aliens that look like Satan and what is left is a sci-fi tale that’s been told in many different times and in many different ways. Aliens come to earth because they want to take over earth for their own malevolent purposes. This has nothing to do with Satan’s purposes as revealed in Scripture. He has been slowly and consistently gaining more control of earth and its people because of his own purposes which culminate in attempting to keep Jesus from touching down physically on this planet when His time comes for His Second Coming.
It is impossible for the world to have one huge global system of governance without proper surveillance measures in place throughout. It’s not for our safety though, but for the convenience and safety of the elite.
Folks, you may be one who needs to find a balance between a Christian’s involvement in the political arena and evangelism. I would hope that you would err on the side of greater evangelism and less on politics. God’s plan is written in stone. It is unchangeable just as His plan to create Israel and bring forth from that nation a Messiah, a Savior was unchangeable. This Savior would make salvation available to all who would come, believing, trusting in the Name that stands alone, rising high above all others, “so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,” (Philippians 2:10).
I am convinced that Satan has been using ideologies like Dominionism to cause Christians to shift their focus away from spiritual needs to material needs. In the meantime though, Satan continues to redirect society away from God and God allows it. God does so because His highest purposes benefit from it. While I believe the church needs to “wake up,” it needs to do so with respect to the Great Commission and not any sense of “Dominionism” or “Reconstructionism” that is allegedly supposed to direct our steps.
If God is allowing Satan every opportunity to make himself “like” the Most High, it stands to reason then that God will allow His own Word to be fulfilled and that includes a time when Satan – through his spiritual “son” – will rule the earth during the final seven-year period, which ends with the physical return of Jesus.
In essence, what we will eventually learn is that while God offering salvation is most definitely something that brings tremendous glory to God, it is not His highest purpose. It is only part of His highest purpose. The overriding higher purpose of God has been to prove the entire universe and every creature within it that this so-called battle between “good” and “evil,” God vs. Satan is no battle at all. Not only that, but it will be forever written into the annals of future history into future eternity that sin was finally exhausted and still, God won. Sin actually will come to an end when Satan will have done everything he can to bring his own paltry, arrogant-driven promises to fruition.
The real tragedy here is that Antisemitism is still alive and well today. However, instead of a growing resistance against it, we see a full-on growth of it throughout the world. While on one side we have many in Arab countries who either downplay or outright deny that the Jewish holocaust ever occurred, the other side ignores that and simply does its best to paint Jews and the nation of Israel as the source of continued problems, not only throughout the Middle East, but the world itself.
It is the Rapture that is expectantly waited on by the powers of darkness. They know that once it occurs, the Holy Spirit will no longer have the invisible Church through which to work, to convict the world of sin and to call them to righteousness. At that point, Satan and his minions will have far greater leeway to work. They will not hesitate to use every dark art to their advantage as they race toward the culmination of human history in Armageddon. Satan actually believes he has a chance of “besting” God, but we know that Satan (via Antichrist) will be destroyed by a word from the mouth of our returning Jesus, during His Second Advent (2 Thessalonians 2:8).
