I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 6

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 Will Be Like the Most High, Part 5

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.

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 4

However, if we look seriously at the whole timeline of events from Creation until now, or at least since the time of Christ until now, what has been the one constant that is to absorb Christians? What one thing are all Christians to be involved in regardless of how good or bad the times are in society? If you answered “the Great Commission,” you would be 100% correct. This should be every Christian’s main push. It is our true calling, our main calling, not our secondary calling.

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 3

So why did God allow Satan to do all of this only to stop him from completing his mission? Was God afraid that He was inevitably too weak to deal with Satan? Let’s not be absurd. There are only two reasons why God “delayed” the inevitable here. First, the nation of Israel had not yet been created. From the nation of Israel would come to Messiah/Savior of humanity for those who would trust in Him through faith. It was only after God the Son came in human flesh as Savior to live a life of sinless perfection and die a sinner’s death only to rise again because death could not hold Him, would Satan be allowed to bring His Isaiah 14 promises to fruition in earnest. Second, God wanted to ensure that Satan had every opportunity to bring his whispered goals to fruition, but they would be done in God’s time.

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 2

What can we expect in this world and what should we see unfolding, not only in our lifetime, but up until and including the end of the coming Tribulation period? If God is going to allow Satan the opportunities he needs to attempt to bring his promises to fruition, how will that appear to us? Will we see it happening? Will it affect the world and our lives? What changes might we see in global society as Satan is allowed to bring the needed change to this world so that he can ascend, if you will, to become absolute ruler?

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 1

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.

Satan’s Attempt to Be Like the Most High God, Part 2

The problem of course is that, while some choose to believe that Paul’s reference to the “man of sin” is a metaphor that refers to the Christian and the fact that our body is now the temple of the Holy Spirit, this stretches the credulity of the text itself. They believe that the “man of sin” is an appellation for the spiritual man created by the Holy Spirit. They do not see Paul’s words as being literal, but merely figurative. Unfortunately, there is nothing in the text that supports this. Paul seems to be clearly pointing ahead to a time still in front of us when a man will walk onto the scene and will surrender himself to Satan. Satan will then give him his authority and enabling (supernaturally). This man will be known as the Antichrist, or “man of sin.” Paul’s use of the singular here is very important. He is speaking of ONE specific individual.

Satan’s Attempt to Be Like the Most High God

I believe since then, Satan has been busy attempting to rebuild a Tower of Babel, but not in the physical sense. I believe Satan has spent thousands of years bringing people together as “one” in thought, religion, government, and societal structure. This will make it much easier for him to completely indwell one coming individual who will be offered the same thing Jesus was offered in Matthew 4. There, Jesus was offered all the kingdoms of the world if only He would bow down to Satan and worship him alone. We know that Jesus rejected without consideration Satan’s temptation. We also know according to 2 Thessalonians 2, the coming “man of sin” (which is not a metaphor), will likely face the same temptation and, unlike Jesus, will succumb to Satan. At that point, Satan will supernaturally endow this coming “man of sin” with all of Satan’s ability. We learn this in Revelation 13:3-4, which states, “And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast.”

Public Decorum Is Gone like the Dinosaur

We gave up cable over a year ago and good riddance. We have Internet only and use that to watch television, choosing only the programs we want to watch and without commercial interruptions. Most are old TV shows and old movies. I rarely watch sports anymore either, unless it’s college ball. Most of what’s on is simply part of the Hollywood cesspool. Hollywood works hard to foster new “norms” that it can foist onto society through television, movies, video games, and music. It’s all done on purpose.

Today’s Prophet Doesn’t Like Criticism

Wouldn’t it be great if all Christians were far more concerned about submitting to Jesus, allowing Him to live His life in and through them as opposed to looking under every rock and bush for the latest new “sign” that will signal the return of Jesus? Fewer and fewer Christians today seem interested in reading God’s Word for spiritual growth. Too many want to live the exciting, adventurous life of the New Testament Christian where one miracle leads to another.
