Meet the demon assault led by Abaddon. Part 13.

EZE 28:12 “You had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.”
EZE 28:17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;”
Beauty + glamour = the arrogance in the Satanic revolt against God.
Sol 4:1 “How beautiful you are, my darling, How beautiful you are! Your eyes are like doves behind your veil; Your hair is like a flock of goats that have descended from Mount Gilead.”
One of the signs of a petty, narrow-minded society is to elevate beauty and reject the mentality of the soul.
The connotation of attraction is the long hair of the woman, the connotation of destruction is the teeth of the lion.
The teeth of lions indicates that behind the facade of beauty is the ruthless desire to destroy, another form of deception from Satan and his kingdom of darkness.
Long hair is the sign of revolt against the laws of divine establishment, 1CO 11:14-15.
The appreciation of beauty demands humility.
The distraction of beauty leads to arrogance and arrogance means no capacity for love.
The key is to know what is behind the beauty. Is it character, integrity, honor, sensitivity, or capacity for love?
Or is it a facade so that when contact is made, there is the teeth of the lion - the formula for torture?
The teeth of the lion represents power, cruelty, arrogance and torture.
The breastplates of iron in the ancient world were considered to be the best piece of defensive equipment.
The only defense against demons is from our fellowship with the Lord, and this is also true during the Tribulation period.
The first thing we note about the attack is that before they even hit they have already paralyzed their victims with fear.
Fear switches you from mentality to emotion.
Emotion is a wonderful thing when it is controlled by thought.
They hit you with sound before they hit you with their weapon systems.
Ever since GEN 3:8, fear caused Adam and the woman to hide themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden, because they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day.
GEN 3:10 - Adam said, “I heard the sound of Thee in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.”
JER 49:23 For they have heard bad news; They are disheartened. There is anxiety by the sea, It cannot be calmed.
The victims of this attack are there not because God made this happen, but because they made bad decisions from a position of weakness.
Bad decisions regarding the cosmic system and false doctrine result in demon influence on the believer and unbelievers and in some cases to the unbeliever, even demon possession.
The greatest power you carry in your soul is a greater power than the attack of demons, it is your volition.
In the Tribulation, the removal of the restraining ministry of God the Holy Spirit is one of the characteristics.
At the end of the Tribulation those in the cosmic system are vulnerable to something that has never occurred in all of history.
People saw Apollo, who was a demon. Zeus was a demon. Aries was a demon. Pan was a demon. They were seen by the people of the earth, PSA 96:5.
Today the attack against believers is the doctrine of demons. The attack today is not physical pressure; it is mental pressure.
We have seen the locust description - the audible attack, the noise which intimidates - now we see the scorpion description.
God never permits this to happen until the end of the Tribulation period, and the five months of torture without death is one of the great illustrations of the justice of God and the grace of God in giving them five months in which they can repent.
