Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, But those who deal truthfully are His delight. Proverbs 12:22
Lying was first introduced by the father of lies in the courts of God’s Kingdom, disturbing the harmony of God’s Sovereignty throughout His realm.
(The Adversary in The Scripture’s is called and also known as the serpent, the dragon, father of lies, Satan, the devil, the first beast. (Revelation 12:9; 13:12)
This opposing angel as I am lead to believe, and you are welcome to agree or disagree, was called Lucifer the light bearer. He became jealous of our Lord God’s worship, of His praises and song that he (Lucifer) himself was in charge of, coveting His Maker’s glory, God’s throne. The created being, an angel of magnificent attributes, intellect, gifts of beauty (good looks), decked out with precious jewels, gift of music and instruments (prince of the air), in charge of the heavenly host, thousands upon thousands of angels, third in command, ‘son of the morning’, stood next to the Most High God, covering the Father’s thrown with his wings, was in envy not of what he already had but of what he didn’t. This envy gnawed at him till he ceased to be a created being of beauty on the inside (in his heart), to provocateur with evil intentions. His narcissistic mind was plotting how to achieve this. He devised a plan to upstart the flow of peace, order and love between subject and king. Becoming leader of a rebellion and an adversary. The insurgent succumbed to the urge of self, instigator to an insurrection of God’s authority. His method – lies and innuendos, he convinced himself this revolt was for the good of all. And his pride, his egotistical self got the better of him to evolve into willful incarnated sin.
How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground—mighty though you were against the nations of the world. Isaiah 14:12 TLB
Can you see how his rebellion, his insurrection gave birth to the Commandments.
The love of the heavenly courts were turned upside down with confusion. He insinuated God was unfair, unjust in delegating the purpose of each created being. A major change in the heavens was happening where doubt and fear quickly flourished.
God gave each of His created beings, ‘free will’. To think for themselves in harmony with His sovereignty. God is Omnipotent knowing what works best for all of creation. Everything is designed out of love and a purpose for everything. Everything working together. A partnership to grow and contribute our own uniqueness to the equation. Not out of jealousy, strife, discord, lies, rebellion, as the father of lies would have one believe. But out of love, respect, unity. God never intended this truth of evil to be realized, much less implemented. But our Sovereign Father knew in giving ‘free will’ to every created being, to freely love Him of their own accord, to engage in a relationship of mutual understanding not by force or tyranny, but respect of Who He Is.
To think on our own in this love, for He is love. All of us have purpose that is in harmony with His Spirit. This was skewed by satan who found himself coveting His Creator’s worship. He no longer wanted to initiate the worship of the Father and Sovereign but wanted it for himself. All the accolade, adoration rightly belonging to God he craved, lust for. He introduced doubt and discord among the angelic host making himself the leader of change that in his mind will give him the upper hand. His sense of improving things from the wisdom and truth already established. Anyone can see disharmony brings nothing but pain and alienation, separation, chaos and eventual death. This is evil, impersonating his perverted sense of agape love. He became Satan, anti- God, anti- God’s established kingdom.
Unfortunately both angel and man fell to his conning ways. Presenting his twisted view in a manner that would attract and deceive. Our Father didn’t create evil! Evil was found in Lucifer and in his cohorts he convinced to enlist. From the start of his initial envy, encouraging others to follow his warped sense of ‘righteousness’, lying about our Father’s so-called injustices that planted dismay in the mind and hearts of the angelical realm. His conning ways introduced fear. Love and peace were replaced with uneasiness, confusion, discord, (sound familiar). War was brewing in the heavenly courts where Satan roused one-third to side with him. God had to put a stop to this madness, giving him time to reflect or face consequences at the appointed time. Yet his ego couldn’t abandon what he craved. Our Heavenly Father couldn’t rightly destroy him there and then, for Satan would have been proven right (a martyr), to fear God, for expressing his ‘free will’ to resist. And so here we are in the latter stages of this universal drama.
Ephesians 6:12 NKJV 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.
In other words,
For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world.
Our Father and His infinite wisdom knew it had to be played out so the universe would see and know without a shadow of doubt, what satan’s plans really reveal/brings, what evil produces; ultimately his sense of righteousness brings death and destruction. The uprising of the heavenly realm was stopped and he was unclad of his station (not his powers), and cast down along with his cohorts. Although allowed visiting rights, in the hopes (in my opinion) he would change his ways. His self pride overruled him to pay visits only to accuse our brethren. This too will be dealt with at its appointed time.
The Father is Omniscient and with the Son (Jesus) had made a pact within themselves to save the human family from our own rebellion. Introduced by Satan, who was allowed to plant the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden. You’ll recall he could visit both the earth and God’s throne room, “…for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.” Revelation 12:10
God is still in charge but allowed him to test man’s heart. Yet, the tree was not enough, for our first parents stayed away from it.
He disguised himself as a serpent (the demon that he was possessed the snake’s soul), hanging around the one tree that was forbidden in Eden. Where he visited at his leisure finding a way to beguile Eve, finding her alone without Adam, he was able to twist the truth of God’s edict. Everyone knows that story of how evil entered our realm, how our first parents ate from the tree of knowledge and found themselves stripped of their heavenly splendor, of their innocence and naked. No longer immortal but mortal beings, subject to the edict pronounced upon biting the forbidden fruit. Severing the close relationship to the Creator Father, breaking our connections to freely converse with God, walk with Him, loosing their home- paradise. Causing a curse on the ground and themselves for their trespassing. Meanwhile the serpent/Satan laughing he got a way with ruling earth, (God’s jewel). Yet, God in His mercy also gave them/us a promise, her ‘seed would bruise the head of the serpent‘ (paraphrasing Gen 3:15). Satan convinced Eve and in turn Adam who knew better, yet fell. Satan has been doing this ever since, the con-artist, enticing men to forget our first love, our Sovereign Father any and every which way. He’s had centuries to perfect his craft of deception, twisting the truth of our Father’s love. Evil became part of our DNA. Our purity tinted and time issued, with six thousand years allotted to man to rule himself.
Our subconsciousness is inundated with subliminal messages nowadays. Anything that once was consider wrong is now right and the right is wrong to the point of confusion, intolerance, hatred. There was nothing but evil in the land in Noah’s time, that God was sorry He ever made man. He destroy the old world finding only Noah who trusted, believed in Him and through him his family. History is now repeating itself for the world is once again influence by evil. Where talking about God and His forgiveness, His love is wrong. Where using the word ‘repentance/repent’ can cause you your job. Hello! Someone please explain how this can be a bad influence… What a sorry and sad state we are in.
You can’t speak of God, but Lucifer and his works are taught in schools, are in our movies, television and so on. Lucifer is still a beautiful angel but his heart is evil, (don’t judge a book by its cover, his appearance might look angelic but he is far from being its true meaning). He’s portrayed as misunderstood, as the “morning star” who created everything [he cannot create he can only imitate], referred to in some circles as god. He’s depicted as baphomet, a heathen idol, a goat-man/woman image representing him, that’s displayed in varies areas, or a red devil with horns and a tail. People’s imagination is astounding! This is considered ok, but display the Nativity scene and all heck breaks out. There’s a double standard here too, they consider themselves a church/a religion, yet don’t abide by the same rules. We are so blinded by political correction that we miss the bigger picture. Satan who could careless about us humans, doesn’t want the best for people but uses them to further our demise. And this includes the ones who side with him. He could careless other than these misguided individuals helping his cause. He gives them the world if they bow and sell their soul to him (instant gratification). He plays, impersonates himself as an ‘angel of light’ when it suits him. In these last days, evil no longer has to hide behind shadows. It’s disguised in every type of entertainment, furthering our separation from the Father. Infesting our mind with lies and innuendos of half truths. For satan knows if you’re aware of God and His gift of forgiveness, His truth, you would change your mind and heart to the love of the Lord God. You would come to know the heart of the Father and the lies of this impostor.
Evil is so twisted that it’s out in the open enticing people, especially the young to side with him for he’s the ‘misunderstood one’. God is irrelevant, far away, non-existing in some circles, a tyrant with many rules. Therefore not being aware of His true understanding and wisdom, of His gift of redemption. All of it being a fairy tale nothing more. And the upstart is loving it. If he can get people to abandon God then his days are lengthen. God is pleading His case to the world, the end will come when the whole world knows about Him. Everyone has a choice. Satan’s last frontier now that he attacks the family is the young of society, and the gullibility of individuals not in commune with God fall to his crafty schemes.
the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:17
Pray for our children, for people to wake up to the realities already here and the soon coming ones. As in Noah’s day all was evil in the land so too, is appearing to be in our present time, (just as Scripture states). Unfortunately it will get much worst before the arrival of our rightful King. But i digress…
Lucifer was not privy to the agreement between Father and Son, the Heavenly Father God and Christ. Lucifer, became Satan, Satan literally means “adversary”. He’s anti – anything that is good and righteous in God’s eyes, meant for our well-being. His envy chose to rebel against all that is sacred to our Creator. All that runs smoothly, all that is opposite to God’s ordinances and judgement he delights in, all that gives life purpose. Lying to get his way, lying to manipulate the minds of individuals, crafty and cunning, twisting the truth to his advantage, advancing his agenda. (Sometimes I wonder who would he rule if he annihilates everybody..?.. himself and his cohorts would be the only ones left.) The fool is blinded by his own ambitions.
He was stripped of his home not his attributes (power), nor beauty, cast down to the lower heavens for his defection, taking a third of the angelic host with him. In which a small group of them even took it a step further in their outright onslaught in mingling and taking human wives (Genesis 3). Teaching the dark arts, their cunning ways.
Lucifer’s heavenly position of authority taken away, for his insurgency. The Adversary has taken himself the title of ruler of this world by taking Adam’s inheritance away from him. He made himself a destroyer of everything that’s good and righteous to God. Insinuating dishonesty, distortion, fabrications. Showing man the arts of war. Everything that unites us in love has been altered by this upstart, who thought God’s way was unjust. The morning star ceased to be and the adversary is at war, with God the Father, with the Lord Jesus Christ and by extension everyone, everything kinship with/to God and His Son.
Be careful—watch out for attacks from Satan, your great enemy. He prowls around like a hungry, roaring lion, looking for some victim to tear apart. 1 Peter 5:8
God is our Creator, He is love and compassion, honest/truthful, merciful and offering forgiveness, everything good. He is also true justice, everything will come out in the open at it’s appointed time. Although we are not privy to the entire story of Satan and his motley crew, of when it all began (in the heaven’s), for time is irrelevant to God. (Time came after the fall, when the first couple and us were stripped out of our immortality status.)
We’re given enough to know Satan and his ilk’s true nature. I believe they too, were given ample time to repent before being cast down/out of God’s kingdom and yet our Father still allowed satan visitation rights. God is fair in all His dealings, giving everyone of His created beings ample time to repent, and get to know Him. He reveals truth of the knowledge of good and evil now infested in our lives and what each can result in. Giving us the understanding of what each brings. And to those who seek Him, clarity is given in their search of Scripture’s treasures, thereby choosing rightly which road to take. Those who choose to follow Christ receive His Spirit/His power in our lives in communications (prayer), in discernment, in protection and help in times of trials. After the fall we inherited the spirit of unrighteousness, we find ourselves in a tug-of-war with ourselves on which spirit is stronger in us. We are known by the fruits we produce. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Matthew 7:20
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without hypocrisy. James 3:17
We’ve had many of God’s servants throughout the centuries, Prophets, Apostles, and even the Son Himself, tell us and warn us, there’s a better way to live in harmony and it begins with the grace of God. All known through His inspired Book that is our manual of truth. God’s way is not the world’s way. The law was given to show our transgressions. Satan has twisted to his advantage and our demise.
Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by trying to keep the Jewish laws? Of course not, for the Holy Spirit came upon you only after you heard about Christ and trusted him to save you. Galatians 3:2
Hence, the law couldn’t accomplish what the Spirit of God in Jesus’ death and resurrection gave us. Promising He would not leave us orphans but bestows once again His Spirit in us to understand His wisdom, power to keep the faith, endure and help in our trials with the will to spread the Good News. Courage to stop our transgressions including the lying that begins a chain of circumstance that go out of control, initiating worst outcomes. Jesus Christ is our hope and throughout history He’s been there guiding His people home, (both gentile and Jew).
Stop lying to each other; tell the truth, for we are parts of each other and when we lie to each other we are hurting ourselves. If you are angry, don’t sin by nursing your grudge. Don’t let the sun go down with you still angry—get over it quickly; for when you are angry, you give a mighty foothold to the devil. Ephesians 4:25-27 TLB
We all have a choice to make we cannot be lukewarm, (the message to the churches in Revelation 2 explains each stage we are in, in this earthly drama). One gives life while the other is death. The war is won over life and death and Jesus holds the keys to both. But satan is so blinded by his own ego that even though he knows he will be judge and found guilty, imprisoned for a thousand years (he knows the bible better then we do) doesn’t stop him. He actually thinks he can succeed with his deception. After his sentence, God will resurrect all the evil men that didn’t join Christ when He came to take His own home, (this is known as the second resurrection), to be sentence to death in hell. Judging has taken place by the saints reviewing the books in the thousand year spanned of his captivity. Satan will not give up but convince these evil ones to one final battle in war against Jesus and the saints. (Rev. 19-20). It doesn’t end well for them or the adversary.
Imperative you are found in the first resurrection, having the faith of the Gospel Jesus Christ and His commandments in our heart, where the second death can’t touch you. But experience eternal life with the Father and His Son our King, in the new heavens and the new earth that will replace this dying planet, when everything in prophecy will have been fulfilled in the latter stages of this drama. We are in this latter stage. Look around and see how history is repeating Noah’s time and getting ready for it’s final curtain call.
All starting with jealousy, covetousness, lying, and manipulation. Satan has had about 6000 years to perfect his craft of deception, of enticing not only a third of the angelic kingdom to his side, but also of getting humanity to like him, focusing our attention on worldly things, worshiping him indirectly by forgetting who really is in charge. His self-absorption lead to his soon demise. He knows his time is very close to being up. A god of war and all its implications is intensifying his wares on the children of God. Jesus told us hard times will come. People were lead to attacked Him and crucify Him, if they persecuted Him, they will persecute His elect, (paraph. John 15:20 ; all through the Scripture’s it warns us to be on guard). Be watchful and awake, praying always to be found without guilt, praying often for your needs, safety and for others.
The greatest deception is yet to come, a charismatic, good looking individual will pretend to be a savior coming to the rescue from all the chaos and destruction happening, he will supposedly have all the answers to the world’s dilemma. That even some of the elect will marvel and get carried away with this lie. The first three and a half years will be alluring, engaging, desirable. People will be fooled. Using/twisting man’s intellect to his advantage and showing signs and wonders like Abraham, Moses, Elijah, like Elisha, like the Son of God. Only he doesn’t have the Spirit of God in him, but of evil. The wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing will come out in the last three and a half years of the last seven years allotted, and show his true colors. People not knowing this impostor and his schemes, not up with the study of Scripture will fall. The deception will be so great it will even convince some of the elect/saints that Jesus has come. He is known as the Antichrist in Scripture, yet he comes as a shining light (a knight), healing the sick, etc. Satan is all about copying, he has no power to see the future or create. But he will copy Jesus, possessing this charismatic person. Many religions will fall for this disguise and cause true believers to die, thinking they’re doing God’s work. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. Matthew 24:24
And he [the Antichrist] exercises all the authority of the first beast [satan] in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived [imitating Jesus’ death and resurrection]. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast [could be AI robot], that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Revelation 13:12-17 NKJV
Be strong in your convictions, in your trust, wearing God’s armor. God will protect and empower you to stand tall, to be His lampstand in a world gone mad. Be prepare. If some of us are destine to be martyrs for His cause know we will be one of the saints crying in the courts of Heaven, And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Rev 6:10+ . Don’t be discourage if they kill the body, they can’t kill the soul that belongs to God.
Anything that is the opposite of God, anything that lures us away from God’s presence, anything that doesn’t produce good fruits is not from God but of the impostor. We are told to worship God above everything else. Our human form has the conscious of both the spirit of God and the spirit of evil in us. We choose who we follow by our actions, our mannerism, our behavior towards God and man. A battle wages in us that only the grace of God can conquer. In our repentance and acceptance of Christ we are given the power of the Holy Spirit to conquer this battle, along with His help to move forward in His Presence. I believe we will be going through this time of trouble, just like the centuries before us had their own. But this great battle God will equip His elect with the power of His Spirit. So do not loose faith in these trying times as hard as it may seem and especially in the one to come, but always focus and pray. Jesus has our backs!
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. John 14:26
For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” Luke 12:12
But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power to testify about me with great effect, to the people in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth, about my death and resurrection.” Acts 1:8
“Dear friends, don’t be afraid of these who want to murder you. They can only kill the body; they have no power over your souls. Luke 12:4
The Ancient of Days, God the Father is rightful Ruler of the Universe and has given Jesus the crown to rule the earth. He has decreed at the appointed time all evil will be dealt with. Evil will be destroy and Satan will be put in chains left alone for a thousand years in a desolated world to contemplate where his leadership has led him. Yet, his conceit-ness of his own ego won’t let himself be defeated even after the thousand years are over.
The universe through the centuries have seen what disobedience, self-absorption brings. Including all human believers who stayed faithful to our Creator will have had their bodies changed and those who died with God in their heart will have been resurrected. With Satan’s captivity and thousand year sentence, the faithful saints will be granted to investigate the books to see fellow beings (both angels and humanity), who chose the love of the world, chose to rebel and not repent. And know the reasons, all the missed opportunities given and rejected, dismissed. To know without a shadow of doubt why loved ones really stayed behind suffering God’s wrath and prove God’s righteousness is sound and His justice applicable. (Rev 20).
All of us have our own book, all things we have ever done and not done is recorded from birth to death. And why it’s important to get to know our Savior personally, repenting daily of our misdeeds for no one’s perfect. Seeking forgiveness and help to stay faithful. God is love and forgiving, not wanting anyone to perish. Jesus cleanses us and puts His Spirit, His mark on us. His faithful know His name and He knows ours for we’ve have established a relationship with Him. All who accepts His gift, to come to Him with heavy trials that weigh on us, because of temptations that lure us away from Him. Jesus has gone before us, He is our example. Urging us, Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Mat 11:29
For the faithful will see the books open and judge for themselves, to see how fair and just our Heavenly Father truly is. He wants no one to have Satan’s fate. Satan and his cohorts be them fallen angels or human beings have been deceived to believe the lie that God doesn’t really care. Don’t be among the living dead.
If we are not with Him we are in opposition, carrying our own guilt and sin ourselves into the Judgment Day’s courtroom. That day is also coming. Our life-book will expose these wrong doings instead of showing a blank pages – “forgiven” page. We decide which camp we follow using our free will to engage in the world’s follies or be counted worthy to enter God’s eternal Kingdom. The end of The Book ends well for those who trust, believe and follow Christ, forming a relationship with Him here and now is very advantageous to the here and now and to this end-time scenario.
We are in the valley of decisions to stand for self or God. Now is the acceptable hour. Heavier times are coming that WILL bring everyone to their knees. One group in praise and thanksgiving to be going home, the other to judgment and the hell of death. Choose wisely which group you prefer to be in for there is a choice. Although its been eschew there is no excuse. Jesus is truth, nature itself proves there is Someone in charge of it all. Archaeologist have proven the Bible is authentic, the prophecy have come and are coming to fruition are true. And if most of the Scripture’s is true than all of it is true and the inspiration of God. Our manual in these last days. Believe in Him. Repent and get right with God, time is running out.
He will give you the power to sustain you, to carry you through the trials, the strength to endure and soldier through, the trust you have will be a shining light in the storms ahead of us. Not to give up when times gets tough, that’s what satan wants. He makes you think you can’t go on, makes you think it’s impossible BUT that is a lie. There is power in the name of Jesus to help us through anything. Stay in His grace, stay with Him, as long as you have breath believe in His promises. It is a matter of life or death, choose wisely. For the enemy is out to get you away from knowing the Lord of lords and King of kings and His kingdom of true peace.
Thank you for visiting 🙂
God bless each one of us to discern truth not hide in the deception being perpetrated and manipulated as truth. Let us be united in the love that was from the beginning, from God the Father.
The above is what the Lord has put in my heart. I urge you to do your own homework, study your Bible and be watchful of the seasons, not be hypocrites in knowing the weather but not the times we are living in. We not only battle with flesh and blood but evil entities wanting our demised. It’s not a happy-stance like the entertainment industry have you believe. It’s there to entice you out of knowing God and His love for YOU. Your going to pay with your life in listening to the piper’s flute instead of God’s trumpet. We are made stronger then this, stronger to resist the temptations of evil through Jesus Christ alone. Run the good race til the end, don’t let anyone steal your crown! Be blessed! Be children of the Most High God, our Heavenly Father, Creator of the Universe. Be more like Jesus Christ His Son, who gave of Himself for us, showing us the way, truth and life, with Him we can conquer this con-artist, this enemy as He conquered. Jesus is leading the way back to Eden, the New Jerusalem. That is our true home.
Thank you for reading. The truth can be stranger than fiction.
Please take this in the spirit it was given. Again you are free to agree or disagree. If you disagree to some or all, plz let me know why with Scripture verses, please. I believe in the post tribulation rapture ( Mark 13 NKJV – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+13&version=NKJV ). If I’m wrong and the rapture occurs earlier great, but if not people will be disappointed, discouraged, disillusion. I trust and I believe God rescues and protects, empowers and strengthen His devoted children, He knows our names. He helped his trusted people from a flood, from the armies of Jericho, from the lion’s mouth, from the fiery fire, and so on. If He did it then He’ll do it at the appointed time in our lifetime as well. Our Lord IS coming for the days are as Noah’s time people are lovers of themselves not our Heavenly Father. Unless you personally know Him you will be no match for the intensity of evil/ deception that’s is practically here intensifying before our Lord’s return. We’re given a window to repent take advantage before it closes.
