The Angelic Conflict – Part 7 Outline
The Angelic Conflict – Part 7 –
ISA 14:12 “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations!”
JOB 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them.
JOB 1:7 And the Lord said to Satan, “From where do you come?” Then Satan answered the Lord and said, “From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”
REV 12:10 the accuser of our brethren who accuses them before our God day and night.
star = heylel = shining one or the shining star.
His real title is “star of the morning,” his glorious heavenly identification before his fall.
REV 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star.”
REV 2:26 And he who overcomes, and he who keeps My assignments until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations;
REV 2:27 and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father;
REV 2:28-29 and I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
Receiving the order of the morning star is the highest manifestation of glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ in the Church age.
(1) The uniform of glory worn over the resurrection body, REV 3:4-5.
(2) The name of the winner appears on the honors list and he is presented in the court of heaven during the Tribulation on earth, REV 3:5.
(3) A new order of knighthood and eternal order of chivalry will be added to the believer’s name in the Lamb’s book of life forever, REV 2:17.
(4) The winner will rule with Christ during the Millennium, REV 3:21.
(5) The winner’s name is recorded in the permanent historical record section in heaven because of his invisible historical impact during the Church-age, REV 3:12.
(6) The winner receives his own coat of arms of glory, REV 3:12.
(7) The winner has special privileges related to the tree of life, the gazebo of the garden, called the Paradise of God, REV 2:7,14.
Nationalism is the belief that nations will benefit from acting independently rather than collectively, emphasizing national rather than international goals.
Behind every earthly power there is a satanic power lurking, seeking to control and dominate for the glory of that rebel angel who declared war against God, Satan himself.
ISA 14:13 But you said in your heart, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north.”
The element in sin which makes it “exceeding sinful,” is the sin of independence, or the choosing of our will over God’s will, ROM 7:13.
Anything done outside of the will of God becomes a form of evil in the sense of being independent from God.
Independence from God makes even the good we produce evil.
JOH 8:44 “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies.”
“I will ascend into heaven” is a reference to the third heaven where God is, 2CO 12:2.
The majority of believers are much more occupied with their own life and their own will than the will of God.
1CO 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
2CO 5:15 and He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.
ROM 6:19 Just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification.
ROM 12:1 I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
