Sunday, April 7, 2002

He is no longer Abram; Abram means the father of high places.

His home town Ur was the center for the worship of the moon God also called Allah.

It is another Jesus, not the Jesus of the Bible, 2CO 11:4.

They teach about the spirit, but not the Holy Spirit from God, 2CO 11:4.

They talk about the gospel, but it is not the gospel of the Bible, GAL 1:6.

You must never look at the personality but the content of the message.

From the middle of the Tribulation period and for the rest of his existence, Satan has to stay on the earth.

He has the greatest mind that any creature has ever had - only one mind is more intelligent than his which is made available to creatures, “the mind of Christ,” 1CO 2:16, PHI 2:5.

REV 12:9 “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”

REV 13:14 - he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform.

REV 18:23 - he deceives the world by using a very popular church in Rome.

REV 19:20 - he deceives those who had received the mark of the beast.

REV 20:3 and threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he should not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time.

Nations = divine institution number 4, nationalism.

Nationalism is the belief that nations will benefit from acting independently rather than collectively, emphasizing national rather than international goals.

The first great attack on nationalism came with the tower of Babel, the first United Nations organization.

1. He divided them by race. 2. Geographically. 3. Linguistically.

“I will ascend into heaven” = the third heaven where God is, 2CO 12:2.

“I will raise my throne or exalt my throne above the stars of God” = the angels, JOB 38:7, Jud 13, REV 12:3-4; stars are angels.

“I will sit on the mount of the assembly in the recesses of the north” = rulership over the government of the earth, ISA 2:1-4.

Clouds represent the divine presence of God or His glory. Jehovah appeared in cloud, EXO 16:10. Jehovah rides upon cloud, PSA 104:3.

In spite of the universal impressions that Satan is unlike God he is much like God outwardly.

JOB 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God [angels] came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them.

JOB 1:7 And the Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”

REV 12:10 - Satan is called “the accuser of our brethren who accuses them before our God day and night.”
