The Devil Made Me Do It! Part 3: “Who Put The Bop In The Bop Shoo Bop?”

.

.

.

.

.

.Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

“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: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” Ephesians 2:2, 3

.

.

.

.

.

There was a popular saying back in the 70’s, which said in a mocking tone, “The Devil made me do it! The Devil made me do it!”

And this worldly saying, “The Devil made me do it! The Devil made me do it!”has had its affect on us for over four decades, making us ashamed to give any credit to Satan, for the evil in the world!

.

But the truth is, the Devil makes a whole lot of people do a whole lot of things in this, his satanic majesty’s kingdom, commonly referred to as “the World”!

WHO IS THAT MAN?

.

There was a popular little song back in the mid-Twentieth Century, that unknowingly asked a very profound question…

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Platters_performing.jpg

.

Listen… “Who put the bomp in the bomp bah bomp bah bomp?
Who put the ram in the rama lama ding dong?
Who put the bop in the bop shoo bop shoo bop?
Who put the dip in the dip da dip da dip?

.

Who was that man? I’d like to shake his hand
He made my baby fall in love with me…”

.

For those who are too young to remember this musical era, this song was praising the peculiar background singers who harmonized using `such nonsensical words in so many of the love ballads of that day!

And even though the composer of this song didn’t realize the profundity of what he was asking, it nevertheless brings us straight to the Bible for the answer…

THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRISThttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:People_on_Times_Square.jpg

.

Yes, just listen to what the Bible says about the spirit that indwells an unsaved person… “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 WORKS IN THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE” Ephesians 2:2

.

This above Bible verse is one of the most ignored passages in all of Scripture. Even most Christians refuse to believe its fearful implications!

BUT I’M NOT AN ANTICHRIST!

.

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 2:2http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anger_during_a_protest_by_David_Shankbone.jpg

.

You see, what this passage is implying, nay, what it is clearly teaching, is that the spirit of Antichrist is now working in the children of disobedience, wherever they are found, in the world and in the Church.

.

“What!?! You mean to tell me that I’m being indwelt by Satan!?!”

.

This is the common response by the world (and worldly Christians) to the assertion that they are indwelt by, “the prince of the power of the air. That spirit that now works in the children of disobedience”!

TWO SPIRITS IN THE WORLD

.

But the fact is, either I am indwelt by the Spirit of Truth or I am indwelt by the Spirit of Error

.

Listen… “and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world…They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, AND THE SPIRIT OF ERROR” 1st John 4:3-6

.

Yes, there is a Spirit of Truth, but also a Spirit of Error. And the Spirit of Error is merely a worldly spirit…. “They (Antichrists) are of the world, and the world hears them.”

.

SATAN, THE RULER OF THIS WORLD

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

.

Yes, this world is the kingdom of darkness, ruled over by the prince of darkness, the Devil. And those who live in this world are the loyal citizens of Satan’s kingdom!

.

Listen…“and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon (Satan)…” Revelation 13:3, 4

.

“You mean to tell me that I worship Satan!?!” No, I’m not telling you anything! I’m just relaying to you what God’s assessment of us is!

LUCIFER, THE WORLD’S GREATEST MUSICIAN!

.

Now, back to this little song, “Who Put The Bop In The Bop Shoo Bop?” What we do not consider is that Satan was a master musician in Heaven!

 

.

Yes, just listen to his musical abilities… “Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty…The workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth;” Ezekiel 28:12

.

This reference to “tabrets and pipes” is a reference to his musical abilities. And this other verse, as well…“Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols…How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!” Isaiah 14:11, 12

.

And so, these two passages make reference to Satan’s elaborate musical accomplishments: tabrets, pipes, violins. Lucifer was a veritable one-man-orchestra/choir!

LUCIFER: THE MAN BEHIND THE WORLD’S MUSIChttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Paradise_Lost_3.jpg

.

And so, why should we be surprised that Satan, “the god of this world” is intimately involved in the affairs of the world of music? After all, Satan is no slacker! He’s a very hard worker! And so it should be no surprise that he is working very hard, behind the scenes, in producing the music of this world!

FALLING IN LUST

.

And it must give Satan great pleasure to produce the highly sensualized music which is being churned out today around the world!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avril_Lavigne_high_mic,_Hammersmith_Apollo_(tint).jpg#/media/File:Avril_Lavigne_high_mic,_Hammersmith_Apollo_(tint).jpg

.

Satan exults whenever he can make young people fall into romance and lust, through one of his songs! And there is no shortage of sensual music today, both lyrically and musically. And much of today’s music is highly sexually-charged.

.

And not only are young people so susceptible to such music, but Satan greatly amplifies the romantic magnetism, that these teens are completely helpless as they are drawn into, and held captive in Satan’s web of sin and lust!

NOT GENUINE LOVEhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Depressionen.jpg

.

All we need to do is to look at the statistics to know that most romantic relationships are not genuine love.

.

True love is patient, gentle, forgiving, pure, and never gives up! But the mere fact that 9 out of 10 romantic relationships eventually dissolve, only confirms that these episodes were not true love, but something less! Something from beneath, and not from above!

“IS THIS THE MAN (LUCIFER) THAT  MADE THE NATIONS TO TREMBLE?”

.

So in answer to the burning question… “Just who was that man (who put the Bop in the Bop Shoo Bop?).”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

.

Simple, it was Lucifer, the god of this sinful, selfish, and lustful world in which we live, and in which we are now being held captive!

.

Yes, Lucifer, the great musician, fallen from Heaven, who writes these emotional and sensual songs which make young people fall into a rapturous euphoric romance with one-another, beyond their control!

.

Don’t forget that Satan is called, “The god of this world” 2nd Corinthians 4:4. And as such, he orchestrates much of what goes on here in this, his kingdom!

THE GOOD NEWS!

.

Now amidst these continuing bad reports of this world’s terminal condition, there exists some very Good News!

.

Yes, God is still calling all those who are ready and willing to make an Exodus out of this Babylon world! And praise God that the door of mercy is still ajar, waiting for the last group of ex-patriots of this condemned planet to come aboard the Ark of Salvation, which is about to leave this planet en-route to the Celestial City of God!

.

So why will ye die? Why not renounce this hopeless and dying planet, with all its sensual and lustful music? And why not rather come and live forever in a Land in which pure music and innocent laughter rings through the everlasting valleys and echoes against the eternal majestic hills?

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.” Rev. 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).
