The Doctrine Of The Kingdom Conflict, aka Angelic Conflict.

Why is there sin?

Why is their suffering?

If we have a God who is loving, why is it that we have to wait for someone to ask?

The Kingdom Conflict answers these kinds of questions.


God’s Rules


God will not violate the free will of men.


God is limited by the rules that He has established in the Kingdom Conflict.


The Kingdom Conflict is to kingdoms against each other with the human race acting as the mediators who will resolve the conflict.


Is God loving? Is God just? If God is loving then why does he cast his creatures into the lake a fire?


Satan makes these accusations. The kingdom of darkness makes these accusations.


We have a God Who will do whatever needs to be done in our lives but we have to have a free will that lines up with His plan.


Romans 8:28 All things work together for good


For the believer who does not love God things do not work together for good.


We have to come to a place to see the value of our free will lining up with God’s plan for our lives.


There is a tendency for mankind to try to blame God for the disasters of life.


Blame God… Blame God… Blame God… Blame God… Blame God…


We are products of our own decisions.


Law of Volitional Responsibility.


Blame God… Blame God… Blame God… Blame God… Blame God…


Galatians 6:7 reap what you sow


The kingdom of darkness wants humans to blame God for everything that goes wrong in their lives.


  1. Definition and Description


Kingdom Conflict, aka Angelic Conflict refers to a conflict that took place before the creation of Adam and Eve, before the creation of the human race.


It is not a conflict that took place between angels and angels but between two kingdoms.


Revelation 12:3-10


REV 12:3 And another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.


REV 12:4 And his tail *swept away a third of the stars of heaven, and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.


REV 12:5 And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to His throne.


REV 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness where she *had a place prepared by God, so that there she might be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.


REV 12:7   And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. And the dragon and his angels waged war,


REV 12:8 and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven.


REV 12:9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.



REV 12:10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying,   "Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night.


Satan and 1/3 of all angelic creatures against the Lord Jesus Christ and God and 2/3 of all angelic creatures.


A pre-Adamic race known as angels in which 1/3 were in opposition of God.


The world has been around for thousands of years.


Genesis 1:2-27

Is about the restoration of the earth not the creation.


The world was restored in 7 days, not created in 7 days.



Col. 1:16


Isa 45:7 Jesus Christ has created all things.


Isa 45:7


The Kingdom Conflict begin with the fall of satan and it continued until all angelic creatures had made a decision for or against God.


Angels were originally created higher than human beings.


Psalms 8:5-6

Hebrews 2:6-7

2 Peter 2:11


Through our union with Jesus Christ Church-Age believers only have been made superior to angels.


  1. As a result of the prehistoric conflict two categories of super creatures known as angels emerged.


The angels who chose for God are called the Holy Angels in Mark 8:38.

They are also called the Elect Angels in 1Tim 5:21.

The 1st group of angels are called Holy Angels and Elect Angels.


The 2nd group are the angels who chose for satan and are two types of angels.

1st  the angels that were chained up in Tartarus.

2nd type are the fallen angels who continue right here on earth, they are the ones who were cast out of heaven with satan in Rev 12:10.

These are the fallen angels who make this world a miserable place to live.


One of the things we are going to see in the Kingdom Conflict is once the rapture takes place satan realizes that he has been totally defeated, the appeal that he has given to God has been denied and he will be cast into the lake of fire. This is the tribulation period!


Church-age believers will not be here for the tribulation period, we will be raptured up.


  1. At the end of the prehistoric human race (before man was created) all fallen angels were judged and sentenced to the lake of fire, including satan.


Satan was sentenced by God and he appealed, which is why the human race was created.

Human history is going to be that which resolves the conflict.


Satan’s appeal will be denied.


Cults will teach that there is no hell, if you are involved with any teaching that claims there is no hell than you are involved with a cult.

The god of cults is satan himself, he is the leader of all cults and it is his line of deceptive thinking…


The justice and the righteousness of God has to have a place to put rebellious creatures or else justice is not justice and righteousness is not righteousness.


MAT 25:41 is something that takes place at the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ, this is not the rapture, this is the 2nd Advent.

MAT 25:41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;


MAT 25:41 is a reference to the “Baptism of Fire”.

This is a reference to the “Tribulational Unbelievers”.



Jesus Christ died in the year 30 A.D. at the day of Pentecost ACTS 2.

ACTS 2 began what is known as the “Church-Age”.


The Church age will consummate when the rapture takes place.

The Church-Age ends when the rapture takes place.


The Church-Age began at Pentecost and will end at the Rapture.

The Church-Age is also known as the Royal Family Of God.


Once the rapture takes place, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, until the 2nd advent, the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ we have a 7 year period, this 7 year period is called the Tribulational period.

During the Tribulation period satan takes over the world.


When Jesus Christ comes back at the 2nd Coming for 1000 years we have the Millennium, the Millennial Reign of Christ.

The Millennial Reign of Christ is known as a time of perfect environment.

Satan and all his angels are put in chains for these 1000 years.

During this time you will have a world that is minus satan and his demons (fallen angels).

During the Millennium we have a world that is without evil, and without religion.

Satan is the father of religion. Religion is from the devil.

The Royal Family of God, the Church-Age believers control the atmosphere.

Right now during the Church-Age we have Eph. 6:12.


EPH 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.


EPH 6:13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.



During these 1000 years we have perfect environment.

When the Millennial Reign starts it starts with believers only.

Everyone on earth is a believer.

Unbelievers are cast into the lake of fire during the “Baptism Of Fire”.



At the end of the Millennial Reign, in Revelation 20,  satan is actually lose for a little while and he tries to wage war, this is called the Gog and MaGog Revolution.



MAT 25:41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;


The word prepared is a perf/pass/part/ hetoimazō

The verb is in the perfect tense, the perfect tense tells us that the eternal fire “has already been prepared”.

It has already happened in the past.

This eternal fire was prepared for the devil and his angels.

God prepared salvation for people.


People will never go to hell for their sins, they will go to hell for one reason, and one reason only, because they rejected Jesus Christ.

JOH 3:18 "He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.


MAT 7:14 "For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.


MAT 25:41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels;


This preparation took place before human history.





GEN 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.


GEN 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.


GEN1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.


GEN 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.


GEN 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.


GEN 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.



GEN 1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.



DEU 32:4 "The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just; A God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright is He.


Hahyah = “was” -  the tense of this in the Hebrew is a “kal preterite” which means “it had become”.

The earth had become without form and void.


Angels need light to function.


Jeremiah 4:23-26


JER 4:23   I looked on the earth, and behold, it was formless and void; And to the heavens, and they had no light.


JER 4:24 I looked on the mountains, and behold, they were quaking, And all the hills moved to and fro.


JER 4:25 I looked, and behold, there was no man, And all the birds of the heavens had fled.


JER 4:26 I looked, and behold, the fruitful land was a wilderness, And all its cities were pulled down Before the Lord, before His fierce anger.


The name satan means an opponent in a law case, the name devil means an advisory in a court room.

Satan is the lawyer for the defense.

The “gap theory” answers many questions.

Between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2 we do not have any idea how many years have gone by.

Ezekiel 28 tells us of a time that satan was in the Garden of Eden worshiping God.


Long before the human race was created, all fallen angels were judged and sentenced.

The sentence was before human history.

The carrying out of the sentence happens at a different time.


REV 20:7   And when the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison,


REV 20:8 and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore.


REV 20:9 And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, and fire came down from heaven and devoured them.


REV 20:10 And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.


Human history has something very vital to do with the conflict.

The sentence is before human history, the carrying out of the sentence is after human history.


1CO 1:26   For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble;


1CO 1:27 but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,


1CO 1:28 and the base things of the world and the despised, God has chosen, the things that are not, that He might nullify the things that are,


1CO 1:29 that no man should boast before God.


EPH 3:10 in order that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.


Satan hates when a believer refuses to quit!

Satan hates when the believer recognizes God for His justice, His righteousness, and His love because you become a witness for God.




Job is our example of a witness for God!


What is your life going to be?

Your life has value!

Angels are observing your life.


The Angelic Conflict, Kingdom Conflict, is the reason why we are here!

You are here to glorify God!


In order to reveal the fairness of the divine judgement God created human history.


God took an inferior creation known as mankind and through His plan and His wisdom, He elevated them to become superior to the first creation known as angels.


The Names of Lucifer:

Hasatan means advisory or an opponent in a courtroom.


ROM 14:10 But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you regard your brother with contempt? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God.


The Names of Lucifer:

Hasatan means advisory or an opponent in a courtroom.


An advisory is one that contends or opposes or resist.


If you are not for Christ than you are against Christ.


There is a real purpose for my life and your life.

If your still breathing God has a plan for you!

What will you do in human history.


God has given you divine assets and divine power right now so that your life can be proof in the courtroom of heaven.

Consider the following before you begin your study:


If you are a born-again believer, you are commanded to be filled with the Spirit.


Be filled with the Spirit. (Eph 5:18b)




If we acknowledge [name and cite] our sins, He is faithful and righteous, with the result that He forgives us our sins [known sins] and purifies us from all unrighteousness [unknown sins]. (1Jo 1:9)


If you are an unbeliever, the issue is faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. You must be born again.


“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (Joh 3:3)




“Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved.” (Act 16:31)


The Word of God is meant to be taught according to isagogics (historical background), categories of doctrine (comparing scripture with scripture), and exegesis (the study of the original languages—Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek).


Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (Eph 3:20-21)



Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  (Phi 4:6-7)
