The Angelic Conflict – Part 1 Outline


The Angelic Conflict – Part 1 –

1TI 5:21 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus and of His chosen angels

Angels observe believers as a result of the angelic conflict.

pres/mid/ind – [Diamarturomai] = to solemnly warn, to solemnly charge someone

[enopion] = in the presence of God the Father, TLJC, and the elect angels 

Angels observe members of the Royal Family of God in their failure or success to execute and fulfill the predesigned plan of God.

1CO 4:9 we have become a spectacle [theatron] to to the world, both to angels and to men. 

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

1PE 1:12 – the angels desire and long to look into the doctrines Church-age believers learn. 

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.

Angels observe the attitude of respect a woman has toward her husband as a symbol of her love for him, 1CO 11:3-10.

Point 1. – Definition –

The angelic conflict is the result of prehistoric creatures being in opposition to God, which began with the fall of Satan and continued until all angelic creatures had made a decision for or against God.

It refers to two trials of Satan and the fallen angels, one in prehistoric times, the other during human history.

Point 2. – The Existence of Rational Creatures –

There are only two categories of rational creatures. The prehistorical category – angels, PSA 8:4-6; HEB 2:6,7;2PE 2:11.

PSA 8:4-5 What is man, that thou dost take thought of him? And the son of man, that thou dost care for him? Yet thou hast made him a little lower than the angels. HEB 2:7 Thou hast made him for a little while lower than the angels.

2PE 2:11 Whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord.

The first category of rational creatures is the superior category; angels are superior to mankind.

Angels were created in eternity past, before the creation of the human race, prehistoric times.

PSA 148:2-5 “Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts! Let them praise the name of the Lord, For He commanded and they were created.”

The second category of rational creatures is the historical category called human beings, mankind, or man.

We have in common with angels the structure of our souls; the two are very similar.

Satan is the most brilliant, most attractive, most personable creature who has ever lived.  He has the greatest personality that has ever existed in a creature.

His real name is Lucifer, the son of the morning, the anointed cherub!
