Daily Devotional, Year 2 – JULY 27

The False Prophet, Part 9: The Devil Owns The Fence!

To read Part 1 of this series, click here… “JANUARY 26 (The False Prophet, Part 1: Lying Eyes!)”

.

.

.

.

.

Robert Frost’s famous comment in one of his poems mused… “Good fences make good neighbors”.

.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mendingwall.JPG

Now as far as human wisdom goes, this is pretty good stuff! But perhaps Frost was speaking of more than just a literal fence. Maybe he was speaking about everyday situations in human relationships. 

.

Well, whatever he had in mind, it nevertheless is true in very many situations in everyday life

.

.

.

.

.

THE DEVIL OWNS THE FENCE!

. 

Well, there is another bit of human wisdom regarding a fence. Listen to this one… “There are many who don’t want to be in the Devil’s Kingdom, nor in God’s Kingdom. They just want to sit on the fence, and be neutral. But what they just don’t realize, is that the Devil owns the fence!”

.

In other words, there is just no neutral ground in this world. You’re either on one side or you’re on the other side: you’re either on Satan’s turf, or you’re on God’s turf! There’s no middle ground in this world…

.

Listen to the very words of Jesus… “He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad.” Matthew 12:30

.

Jesus makes it perfectly clear that there is not neutral ground: if you’re not gathering with Jesus, then you are scattering!

ONE OF SATAN’S GREATEST LIES!

.

But one of the greatest lies in this world is that you can live a nice secular life and just be a nice moral person, neither for Christ nor against Him. Just a fence-straddler, so to speak.

.

But to this, we would answer back, “The Devil owns the fence!”

BLASPHEMY AT THE INTERNET CAFE

.

72215Today, a nice lady was sitting with her daughter in an Internet cafe (the daughter being about 50 years old).

.

And they were having a nice conversation. And yet, the mother could often be heard taking the Lord’s name in vain in various ways.

http://is.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mynd:Troglodytes_troglodytes_-fence-8a.jpg

.

Well, the urge came to turn around and gently scold this otherwise nice lady about her language. But after thinking about it, it was decided not to interfere with her bad habit.

.

Actually, she was inadvertently doing God a service.

.

She was letting all those around her know just where she stands, as far as her relationship (or lack thereof) with God.

THE ANTICHRIST SPIRIT WITHIN

. 

But the real puzzling question is, why did she curse the Lord so often? Why did she use the name, “Jesus Christ!” as a curse word, maybe a dozen or two times in her short conversation?

.

Well, the answer is found in the following passage… “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.

.

Yes, there is a spirit within all humans. Either a person is filled with the “Spirit of Truth”, or with the “spirit of error”. (see 1st John 4:6)

.

The spirit of error of course is “the prince of the power of the air”, spoken of in the above verse from Ephesians 2:2.

.

.

SATAN WITHIN

.

And so, 1st John 4:6 and Ephesians 2:2 are speaking of the very same spirit.

.

Therefore, this seemingly moral lady is merely speaking the very sentiments of the spirit of Antichrist which is working within her!

.

And so, because Satan hates God, this “nice” woman likewise has the spirit of hatred of God within! 

.

Therefore, she has little problem using the Lord’s name in vain! Her blasphemy just rolled off her tongue like water! It was the Devil within who was actually doing the cursing!

.

.

.

.

.

SHOULD BE NO SPECULATION

. 

Now whether the spirit of error dwelling in a person is speaking of one of Satan’s fellow evil angels, or whether Satan himself has some sort of limited version of omni-presence in the children of men, the Bible does not make it clear.

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

.

We just are not told.

 

.

And so, it does no good to speculate one way or the other.

.

Nevertheless we just need to accept that Satan’s spirit of error does indeed work in the children of disobedience.

SATAN KEEPS THE LIE GOING

.

The bottom line to all this is, either you have the Holy Spirit working within you, or you have the spirit of the world working in you!

 

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpgThere is no third alternative! One or the other! And so, the “god of this world”, Satan makes sure to keep this lie going, that a person can be neutral. And one big way is to make sure that secular people don’t appear too evil.

.

And that’s where the following verse comes in… “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters…Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 1st Timothy 3:1, 2, 5.

AN ANGEL OF LIGHT

.

Yes, the people of the world have a form of godliness. But that form of godliness is given by the spirit of error within them. It is not born of the Holy Spirit.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Caf%C3%A9_de_Flore.jpg

Listen again… “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2nd Corinthians 11:14, 15. 

.

Now this above passage is not merely speaking of Antichrists IN the Church. No, it is speaking of any and every one who does not serve the Lord, throughout the entire world!

.

Remember what Jesus said…“He that is not with Me is against me; and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad.” Matthew 12:30.

NO SITTING ON THE FENCE

. 

Yes, all those seemingly nice people in the world are merely Antichrist deceivers, doing the work of their father, the Devil!

.

By their own “niceness” they are keeping up the lie of the Devil, that you can be fence-sitters, neither for Christ, nor against Him. But that’s all it is! Just a big fat lie!

.

The fact is, you’re either in the Devil’s kingdom, or in God’s kingdom!

.

One or the other!

.

No middle, neutral ground!

GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!

Proverbs 25:25

. 

Well, the Good News to all this is, that today is the day of Salvation!

.

Yes, if you or I discover that we are in the wrong army, we still can go AWOL! We can still defect, and become soldiers in the Lord’s army! We can change our residency, becoming citizens of Heaven, instead of citizens of Hell!

.

And once we do change residency, we will forever be lying down in the everlasting green pastures of the Lord!

.

And those green pastures just keep going on and on, for ever, and ever, and ever, and……

“Multitudes, multitudes in the ‘Valley of Decision’…

.

for the day of the Lord is near in the ‘Valley of Decision’.”

Valley of Decision w/names

.

“The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining… 

.

“The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem…

.

“And the heavens and the earth shall shake…

.

“But the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:1, 2

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid.

.

Then find the second pyramid to its right (south).

.

Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation.

.

These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

 

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP. They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

.

These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, these Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
