The Angelic Conflict – Part 15 Outline
The Angelic Conflict – Part 15 –
Cavalry = they have mobility and fire power. Military insignia = they think they are a victorious army. Their faces were like men – though they have greater intelligence and adaptability.
The connotation of attraction is the long hair of the woman; the connotation of destruction is the teeth of the lion, REV 9:8.
The teeth of lions indicates that behind the facade of beauty is the ruthless desire to destroy.
The appreciation of beauty demands humility. The distraction of beauty leads to arrogance, and arrogance means no capacity for love.
Is it character, integrity, honor, sensitivity or capacity for love? Or is it a facade covering 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.
REV 9:9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots, of many horses rushing to battle.
Before they hit they have already paralyzed their victims with fear. Fear switches you from mentality to emotion.
Emotion is a wonderful thing when it’s controlled by thought.
The demon army hits you with sound before they hit you with their weapon systems.
The victims of the attack are there, not because God made this happen, but because they made bad decisions from a position of weakness.
The greatest power you carry in your soul is a greater power than the attack of demons; it is your volition.
The removal of the restraining ministry of God the Holy Spirit is one of the characteristics of the Tribulation.
At the end of the Tribulation those in the cosmic system are vulnerable to something that has never occurred in all of history! No one has ever had so much physical violence from demons!
Today the attack against believers is the doctrine of demons – not physical pressure but mental pressure.
Abaddon is word that occurs quite often in the Old Testament – it is a synonym for Sheol or Hades.
Apollyon is very close to the Greek word for Apollo. Apollo next to Zeus was one of the top demons.
Apollo was one of the first champions of the angel of light principle; he was the champion of lucidity or intellectuality. Apollo represents the intellectual departure from God.
His name also was Phoebus which means “bright” or “pure,” and the view became that he was connected with the sun. Hebrew = destruction Greek = the exterminator.
Only one other fallen angel was probably on an equal basis with him – a prince called Beelzebub, Satan’s inside contact for deceitful things.
Beelzebub is the prince in charge of covert warfare against the human race.
Satan’s human deceivers include sorcerers, exorcists, so-called “divine healers,” and people involved in signs from Satan, including the actual reproduction of the gift of tongues.
Beelzebub is in charge of the eggastromuthos demons who, when they possess the body of an unbeliever, actually reproduce the gift of tongues as it occurred on the day of Pentecost and for forty years thereafter.
No one has been healed by a miracle by a person since 70 A.D. Beelzebub is the head of a great demon organization which practices miracles of healing.
Physiologically-induced illness is related to the functions of the body. Mentally-induced [psychosomatic] illness. Demon-induced illness!
Certain forms of demon possession cause illness, so when the victim goes to a so-called divine healer, Beelzebub orders the demons to withdraw which means an instant and real cure.
REV 9:12 The first woe is past; behold, two woes are still coming after these things.
