The Angelic Conflict – Part 20 Outline

The Angelic Conflict – Part 20 –

Point 6. – The Satanic Plan for Offensive Action in Human History – 

a. The genetic attack – Satan’s attempt to destroy true humanity by the sexual intercourse of angels with women producing a half-human half-angelic race. (GEN 6:1-13; 2Pe 2:4-5; 1PE 3:18-22; Jud 6)

b. The attack of demon possession, in which the demons occupy the bodies of unbelievers resulting in the following: Diseases – MAT 9:33; MAT 17:18; LUK 4:35.

Certain mental disorders, MAT 11:18; LUK 7:33. Divination, the operation of the phallic cult, and many other things.

c. The attack of demon influence against mankind = demons penetrate the soul and personality of both believers and unbelievers, 1TI 4:1.

d. The physical attack of demon armies during the Tribulation. 

(1) The first demon assault army stationed in the abyss, REV 9:1-12.

(2) The second demon assault army stationed under the Euphrates river, REV 9:12-21. (3) The third demon assault army stationed in heaven under the direct command of Satan, REV 12:7-17.

e. The satanic attack in the Gog and Magog revolution at the end of the Millennium. 

REV 9:12-13 The first woe is past; behold, two woes are still coming after these things. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

The golden altar is analogous to the golden altar of incense in the Tabernacle or the Temple; it represents the imprecatory prayers of the Tribulation saints, REV 6:9-12.

Imprecatory prayers invoke evil upon someone or a curse. They are legal and valid for other dispensations, but not for the Church-age.

PSA 58:6 “O God, shatter their teeth in their mouth” All trumpet judgments in the book of Revelation are administered in answer to the imprecatory prayers of Tribulational saints.

Satan’s demon assault armies attack, torture and destroy Satan’s human servants who have been carrying out his will faithfully in the cosmic system during the Tribulation period.

Just as Satan’s servants in the cosmic system tortured and killed Tribulational believers, so Satan’s angels reciprocate against his human servants in the same pattern.

The four horns of the golden altar which is before God remind us that all answers to prayers are related to our Lord’s sacrifice on the cross.

The voice is the voice of a cherub angel guarding the altar, REV 8:3.

REV 9:14 one commanding the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”

They will be restrained until the middle of the Tribulation period because the only demons permitted to operate on planet earth at the present time are disembodied spirits!

bound = pres-pass-part – deo = to bind, to put in prison, to incarcerate or imprison – “who have been incarcerated or imprisoned.”

These demon armies have bodies, weapon systems, uniforms, patches; they are a full military organization.

The demon generals have been put in prison for violating some type of principles in the angelic conflict.

The Euphrates river is 1700 miles long. It was the boundary between Israel (Palestinian covenant) and Gentile nations, GEN 15:18; JOS 1:4.

This river originates in the mountains of Armenia where Noah’s ark is said to be located, and it flows all the way to the Persian gulf.

The first order from the elect Cherub angel to the angel holding the sixth trumpet is to release the general officers, not to release the army!

There will only be one group that they cannot kill – certain demon possessed unbelievers will be exempted from their attack.

The Euphrates is one of the four rivers which flows from the Garden of Eden – a river of great significance!
