How the Angelic Conflict relates to Israel. Part2.
Friday, October 4, 2002
The god of this world, Satan, is the promoter of all anti-Semitism and desires to wipe out Israel.
Angels = superior rational or intelligent creatures to mankind who have existed in the universe for an unknown period of time and have not died.
The angelic conflict began before the creation of the human race.
The revelation concerning the angelic conflict begins with the dateless period between the creation of the heavens and the earth in their perfect form, GEN 1:1, and the desolating judgments which ended that period, when the earth became waste and empty, GEN 1:2.
Nor is this the beginning of the angels because the angels were already around before God created the heavens and the earth, Job 38.
Turn to JOB 38:4
Turn to GEN 1:1
GEN 1:1 - the universe, the heavens and the earth, were originally created as the domain of the angels.
REV 12:4 And his tail swept away a third of the stars [angels] of heaven,
Without light or heat the raging waters of the deep froze into an ice pack and before the earth could be inhabited again, restoration would be necessary.
Formless and void = tohuw waabohuw
ISA 24:1 Behold, the Lord lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface, and scatters its inhabitants.
Turn to JER 4:23
GEN 1:2b “and the Spirit of God began to move over the surface of the waters.”
Mans occupancy on the earth came long after the creation of the earth.
Mans occupancy on planet earth did not last long before Adam and the woman fell, and then Satan became the ruler of the world.
He is an organizational genius with a great organization of demons, EPH 6:10-12.
He is the enemy of Bible doctrine. He is the enemy of the Church, the royal family. He is the enemy of Israel. He is the enemy of Christ.
The king of Tyre was one of the few individuals in human history who was possessed by Satan, just like the serpent in the garden and Judas Iscariot who betrayed our Lord.
Their bodies are not visible to the human race for the obvious reason of the danger of worshipping angels, COL 2:18.
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.
