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.
There are ideologies & principles that have been incorporated into this country in the past 50 or 60 years that are not only opposite of the PPOG but are a direct assault on God Himself, yet many people…. including Bels go right along with the flow.
Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden'?”
Gen 3:1- the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said – immediately Satan ignores the Lord Jesus Christ in his first statement.
Yĕhovah 'elohiym (Lord God)
Satan recognizes a supreme being but he does not recognize the Savior. This has been his policy since the beginning. Satan is the author of all religious systems. The systems that minimize the Lord Jesus Christ or have removed Him altogether.
Subtlety and twisted scripture have been a method and game plan for Satan and his army from the start. Possession and influence are also tools he chose very early in his career.
Satan has to gently begin to undermine God and in doing so he likes to maintain a façade of innocence or purity. Satan and his fallen angels have mastered the art of emotional stimulation.
Gen 3:4 The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
The next phase is a bolder step to bring us to a place where we doubt if God has been honest or fair with us. Then the last step is to offer independence from God because we now have begun to believe God is unjust.
2Pet 2:1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.
2Joh 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.
Teaching Christ as Lord & Savior and the saving work of the Cross is imperative!
Gen 3:23 therefore the LORD God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden He stationed the cherubim and the flaming sword which turned every direction to guard the way to the tree of life.
The Elect Angels and the positive Bels have similarities in that they both are operating within the commission God has called them.
Several analogies are obvious between Elect Angels & Bels.
2Tim 2:3 Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.4 No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.
Saul Alinsky was a community organizer and author, one of his most popular books was- RULES FOR RADICALS. He passed away in 1972 but not before he & his wife Irene had a profound effect on young progressive, liberals across the country.
8 steps to dismantle and control society. Cloward & Piven strategy;
1) Control Healthcare
2) Increase poverty levels to create dependence on Government.
3) Keep debt at higher levels within the society to push poverty.
4) Gun control, citizen should not be able to rise up against government.
5) Incorporate welfare systems that entangle the majority of households, to create more dependence.
6) Education should be controlled to manipulate young minds before they reach adulthood.
7) Religion needs to be regulated so as not to have belief in God gain momentum in schools or Government settings.
8) Create and maintain class warfare to keep division between poor and wealthy, it creates great support for over taxing the rich.
Gen 6:2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.
beni ha Elohim (Sons of God). This word is invariably, without exception, used for angels, never men— Gen 6:2, Job 1:6; Job 2:1, Job 38:7
2Pet 2:4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;
Jud 1:6 And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day,
Jud 1:7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange (heteros)flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.
After the sexual contact of fallen angels and women, that is noted in Gen 6 it appears God put a stop to this activity when the flood wiped the earth clean.
