Satan always uses an intermediary agent, a "middleman.".

Wednesday, January 21, 2004

He now has his third demon assault army made up of the remnants of the first and second demon assault armies.

His goal is to have the return of Christ without any Jew left alive.

To be “swept away” - aor-act-subj - poieo = to do, make, manufacture;
to cause.

Causative active voice - Satan as the subject performs the action of the verb through intermediary means.

He used the serpent to get to the woman in the Garden. Then he used the woman to get to the man, GEN 3:1-5.

Satan used Cain as an intermediary agent to kill a godly man, his brother Abel, GEN 4:8.

Satan used fear as an intermediary agent to get Abraham to lie about the fact that Sarah was his wife, GEN 12:13.

GEN 12:13 “Please say that you are my sister so that it may go well with me because of you, and that I may live on account of you.”

He used the old pity-party excuse of self-justification when Isaac, Abraham’s son, committed the same sin as his father and willfully lied and told the men of Gerah that Rebekah was not his wife but his sister, GEN 26:7.

Satan used love and sex as an intermediary agent to get to Samson, who had a lust for prostitutes and then finally for a ravishing woman named Delilah.

Satan used boredom as an intermediary agent to get David to sin with Bathsheba when he should have been at work leading the Israeli army to victory.

He used a lust for an excessive luxurious lifestyle against Solomon, 1KI 4:22-23.

Satan used Korah, Dathan and Abiram to attack Moses and try to discredit his authority.

JUD 1:8 Yet in the same manner these men, also by dreaming, defile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile angelic majesties.

Satan used Korah, Dathan and Abiram who promised 250 princes of Israel a personal promotion if they would turn on Moses.

Satan used the sin of jealousy to cause Joseph’s brothers to sell him into slavery.

He used the lust for promotion, power and recognition to turn Absalom, David’s son against David.

Delilah was promised promotion for betraying Samson, JDG 16:5, for eleven hundred pieces of silver.

Satan used a love for money as an intermediary agent to Balaam to curse the Jews, Deu 23.

For money Achan brought defeat on Israel’s army and death to himself and to his family, Jos 7.

For money Delilah betrayed Samson and ultimately slaughtered thousands.

For money Ananias and Sapphira became the first hypocrites in the church and God executed them as a testimony against their misuse of money and deceit.

For money, Judas betrayed and sold out Jesus!

1. To bring Israel to the point where she has lost control of her own destiny, like a person swept away in a flood and drowned.

2. To destroy Israel, so that Israel has no future.

They will maintain control of their lives in this crisis and they will continue to make decisions from a position of strength, and for those reasons, they will be able to survive.

They are alive in the midst of the flood but they can see the whole picture.

PHI 1:21 if I live, it is for Christ, likewise dying is profit.

DAN 3:25-26 “Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of God. They came out of the midst of the fire and the fire had no effect on their bodies nor was the hair of their head burnt, nor were their trousers damaged, nor had the smell of fire {even} come upon them.

The analogy of the flood or the rapids refers to the wind blowing from one direction and then another.

Those who advance through P.M.A. of B.D. will continue in the greatest adversity to have a personal sense of destiny, to maintain control of their own lives, and continue to make good decisions from a position of strength.
