The Angelic Conflict – Part 48 –

Point 13. – The Angelic Observation and Opposition in Human History –

Elect angels rejoice over the salvation of one person, LUK 15:7,10.

In the dispensation of the Hypostatic Union, angels observed every part of the First Advent and incarnation of our Lord, 1TI 3:16.

In the Church-age, angels observe members of the royal family of God in their failure or success to execute and fulfill the PPOG, 1CO 4:9; EPH 3:10; 1TI 5:21; 1PE 1:12.

“spectacle” = theatron = a theater, a place for public shows, a play, a pace for the performance of dramatic representations.

EPH 3:10 in order that the multi-faceted wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.

1TI 5:21 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of His chosen angels, to maintain these principles without bias, doing nothing in a spirit of partiality.

1PE 1:12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven – things into which angels long to look.

long = epithumeo = to have a desire for something, to long for, to set the heart upon.

MAT 18:10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you, that their angels in heaven continually behold the face of My Father who is in heaven.”

LUK 16:22 “Now it came about that the poor man died and he was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom;

1CO 11:10 – angels observe the attitude that the woman has toward her husband and the symbol of authority that it represents.

judge = fut-act-ind – krino = to make decisions for, to conclude, to approve, to decree, to rule, to govern, to preside over with the power of giving judicial decisions.

Satan has organized a tremendous demon army to hinder Church-age believers from fulfilling the PPOG.

Fallen angels are organized to resist and oppose positive believers, EPH 6:12-17; JOB 1:6; 2:1-3; 1PE 5:8.

1PE 5:8 Be of sober spirit [attain S.S.E.], be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

1. To blind the minds of unbelievers so they won’t accept Christ.

2. Hinder believers’ function and execution of the PPOG, distract them in every way possible, and keep them from making Bible doctrine their number one priority.

a. Satan and his angels are the enemy of unbelievers, LUK 8:12; 2CO 4:3-4; 2TH 2:7-10; COL 2:8.

LUK 8:12 “And those beside the road are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, so that they may not believe and be saved.”

b. Satan and his angels are the enemy of the Church-age believer, 2CO 2:11; JAM 4:6-10; 1PE 5:6-9; 2CO 11:3; EPH 6:10-17.

JAM 4:7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

c. Satan and his angels are the enemy of the Church, REV 2:8-10, 12-13.

EPH 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

d. Satan and his angels are the enemy of Bible doctrine, MAT 13:19, 39.

e. Satan and his angels are the enemy of Israel, REV 12:13-15.

f. Satan and his angels are is the enemy of the dispensation of the Hypostatic Union, REV 12:4.

g. Satan and his angels are the enemy of nations, REV 12:9; REV 20:3, 8.

h. Satan and his angels are the chief antagonists of the extension of the angelic conflict into human history, Heb 1-2.

1JO 4:4 “Greater is he who is in you than he who is the world.”
