The Angelic Conflict – Part 6 Outline

The Angelic Conflict – Part 6 –

Point 3. – When and How the Angelic Conflict Began –

1. Satan’s fall in eternity past, EZE 28:15.

2. In the middle of the Tribulation, Satan is cast out of heaven, REV 12:9.

3. At the end of the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ, REV 20:10.

LUK 10:18 “I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.”

Satanas = to gossip, to malign, to slander and to accuse.

ISA 14:12 “star” = heylel = the shining one or the star.

Lucifer (Latin) = light bearer. It means the shining one, the translucent one, the simulating one.

Two Hebrew words for shining or for light being thrown out – – Heylel used for Satan. – Nachash used for the serpent, Gen 3.

2CO 11:14-15a And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness;

2CO 11:3 But I am afraid, lest as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds should be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.

2CO 11:4 For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.

You must never look at the personality of the messenger but the content of the message.

From the middle of the Tribulation period and for the rest of his existence, Satan has to stay on the earth.

Only one mind available to creatures is more intelligent than Satan’s and that is “the mind of Christ,” 1CO 2:16,PHI 2:5.

Satan deceives the whole world, REV 12:9. Satan deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform, REV 13:14.

He deceives the world by using a very popular church in Rome, REV 18:23. He deceives those who receive the mark of the beast, REV 19:20.

REV 20:3 and threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he should not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were completed; after these things he must be released for a short time.

Nations = divine institution # 4, nationalism. God’s order for the preservation of the human race is nationalism.

Nationalism = nations will benefit from acting independently rather than collectively, emphasizing national rather than international goals.

God Himself destroyed the first United Nations building, the tower of Babel. He divided nations racially, geographically, and linguistically.

“I will ascend into heaven” is a reference to the third heaven where God is, 2CO 12:2.

“I will raise my throne above the stars of God” – stars are angels, JOB 38:7; Jud 13, REV 12:3-4.

“I will sit on the mount of the assembly in the recesses of the north” = rulership over the government of the earth, ISA 2:1-4. (Messianic recognition.)

Clouds represent the divine presence of God or His glory. Jehovah appeared in cloud, EXO 16:10. Jehovah rides upon cloud, PSA 104:3.

Satan wants the glory which belongs to God alone. “I will make myself like the Most High.”
