The Angelic Conflict – Part 43 Outline

The Angelic Conflict – Part 43 –

Point 11. – How God is Glorified in the Angelic Conflict – 

How did the fall of Adam affect Satan in the angelic conflict?

Before the creation of the human race, God put a curse upon the earth when Lucifer and the fallen angels rebelled!

God had withdrawn from planet earth and left Satan and his followers to grieve over the chaotic mass of the earth.

Satan was utterly powerless with to do anything about the chaos which had come from a simple word of judgment from Almighty God.

The devastation of the universe was revealed in all of its chaos to Satan and all the fallen angels who had followed him!

Two separate battles are now being carried on: Satan against God in the invisible warfare, and man against God in human history.

Will Satan be able to organize mankind into a kingdom for himself?

Will man be able to organize himself, humanity, civilization, so that he can bring peace and order into his realm?

How far did man fall by his disobedience? Is it possible for him to climb back by himself to the heights which Adam knew before the rebellion?

Humanism says man did not fall, that he is on his way up.

“asps” = aspis = a small and most venomous serpent, the bite of which is fatal unless the part that was bitten is immediately cut away.

Some branches of Protestantism hold that though man fell, he still has the will to choose to go back up if he wishes to exercise it.

Man fell all the way into a pit described in the Scriptures as “death.”

1CO 2:14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.

JER 17:9 The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it? 

ISA 1:5-6 The whole head is sick, And the whole heart is faint. From the sole of the foot even to the head There is nothing sound in it.

God’s plan is for both creatures, angels and humans, to realize how helpless and hopeless they are without Him!

Scripture reveals, in the human realm as well as in the invisible war, that Satan can do nothing for fallen man, and that fallen man can do nothing for himself.

God, man, or the devil: the three possible sources of hope.

God permits the holocausts of human history in order to demonstrate to the universe that neither Satan nor man can do anything for themselves or for each other.
