The Devil Made Me Do It! Part 26: “Who Really Blew Up The Twin Towers?”

“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world,

according to the prince of the power of the air,

the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

Ephesians 2:2

.

.

.

.

.

 

Back in the 1970’s, a certain saying was popularized…“The Devil made me do it! The Devil made me do it!”

And this was merely mocking Christians, who were seemingly obsessed with pointing the finger at the Devil.

 

.

Then they could all laugh and mock the notion that Satan is a very active and powerful force controlling the people of this world, by laughingly saying…“The Devil made me do it! The Devil made me do it!”

SATAN, “THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

But the horrifying fact is, the Devil does indeed cause the vast percentage of the world’s inhabitants to do a great amount of things!

. 

And this above verse from Ephesians reveals that Satan is indeed… “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

.

And let’s face it! To admit that the entire world’s inhabitants are filled with this evil spirit is more than anybody is willing to accept, much less even admit!

SATAN, THE GREAT PUPPET-MASTER!

.

In the April 22 devotional (click here), the Devil, being called, “the god of this world” in 2nd Corinthians 4:4 was put forth as an evil puppet-master, controlling and orchestrating so much of the goings on in this world.

.

Oh yes, God is ultimately in control, and only permits Satan to work within the parameters which Bible prophecy lays out, concerning his workings of deception and evil. And Satan must get permission before he can do anything.

WORLDLY ROLE-MODELS?

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:UpstateNYerBut today’s devotional will attempt to hone in on the world, and who is really making things happen. After all, there is a real effort to put the blame on mere humans for what is happening around the world.

.

Take for example the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001.

.

Oh yes, we all know that terrorists did it. But many conspiracy theories surround that tragic event, as to just who was behind it, working in the shadows to make it happen. Some even blame the US government, others blame the Illuminati.  

.

But the Bible has something to say on just who is behind the wars and man-made calamities of this world.

“SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES”

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGListen…“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

.

Satan, “the god of this world” loves to erase himself out of visible existence. But make no mistake! This evil ruler is not just sitting idly by, merely watching the goings on all around him. No, just the opposite! Satan and his vast army of unseen spirit-beings are working around the clock, carefully orchestrating the events in the world, according to his master-plan.

“AND HE (GOD) DOES ACCORDING TO HIS WILL IN…EARTH”

Daniel 4:35

.

Oh yes, God is ultimately in control, and only allows Satan to work within the parameters which the Lord has laid down for him…“Surely the wrath of man shall praise Thee: the remainder of wrath shalt Thou restrain.” Psalm 76:10

.

Make no mistake! God is ultimately in control of man, but also over what Satan can and cannot do!

SATAN, THE TRUE ‘MOVER AND SHAKER OF THIS WORLD!’

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Paradise_Lost_3.jpgBut it is to this evil arch-deceiver’s advantage to create the illusion that humans are master-minding all the current events around the world. And so, he raises up various clandestine organizations and causes us to believe that a small group of men are behind such catastrophes as the 911 attacks.

.

And Satan remains hidden in the shadows. And humans get all the credit, and Satan gets none of the blame!

.

But no, we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the dark spiritual forces at work behind the scenes who are the actual “movers and shakers”.

FOR WITH ME (JESUS), YE CAN DO NOTHING!”

.

The only reason that the world is making all its discoveries and seemingly successful achievements is because the true orchestrators of this world are the higher unseen spiritual powers of both Heaven and Hell (this world) working behind the scenes and in the shadows making it all happen!

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

Well, the very Good (but rather scary) News is that this world has finally come down to its great climactic finale. The final scenes are just now beginning to take place.

.

And all who hear Heaven’s call can jump ship, so to speak, and get on-board the winning side.

.

And this Gospel ship is soon to set sail away from this dying planet and take us to the Promised Land of Milk and Honey in which we will be forever happy and forever young!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

7 HEADS, 10 HORNS, & 7 CROWNS OF THE DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Revelation 12:3 

.

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon Constellation up in the night sky does not.

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

But God has faithfully created the wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically composed of ten stars.

.

The main body of the wave has seven stars (#‘s, 1 thru 7). And the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars (#’s, 8, 9 & 10). So we have this 7 and 10 numbering. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).
