But if our gospel be hid,

it is hid to them that are lost:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

In whom the god of this world

hath blinded the minds

of them which believe not,

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ,

who is the image of God,

should shine unto them.”

2nd Corinthians 4:3, 4

As this above verse reveals, Satan was long ago given the title: “The god of this World”. This great position came about when he deceived our first parents in the Garden of Eden.

A VERY HARD WORKER!

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

.

Now as we read the Bible, it becomes evident that Satan is very untiring, ambitious, hard-working, as well as wholeheartedly dedicated to his great purpose of attempting to overthrow Heaven as well as Heaven’s Jesus! And now that he has been cast out of Heaven for good, he especially goes after God’s people, deceiving them and accusing them before God.

DECEIVES THE WHOLE WORLD

.

.

But Satan deceives the whole world! And he has designed this world to be his kingdom of lies and deceptions…“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Revelation 12:9

.

And so, here we see that Satan deceives the whole world. And whether or not Satan has some limited form of omnipresence, the Bible does not say. But we do know that Satan’s fellow rebels were cast out together, and now work together to deceive the whole world.

.

Now, since Lucifer and his fellow evil angels are spirit-beings, they do not need sleep as do humans. And so these zealous Antichrist warriors work around the clock to carry on their warfare against the whole world…“for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:10

.

So this above verse reveals Satan’s 24-hours-per-day attack on God’s people!

SATAN HAS ERASED HIMSELF

.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpg

And yet this cunning warrior is so crafty he has erased himself out of existence. Oh no, he’s still around! But he has turned this world into an atheistic, unbelieving world. And so, Satan still works with relentless fervor and yet he operates from behind the scenes under the cloak of darkness and secrecy.

“NOT IGNORANT OF HIS DEVICES”

.

TV indoctrination

.

Now the Bible tells us…“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” 2nd Corinthians 2:11

.

OK, O Man of God! Both you and myself, we are not ignorant of Satan’s devices!

MAN GETS TOO MUCH CREDIT!

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

.

So, then, knowing all these things, just why are we Christians giving Man so much credit for Man’s so-called accomplishments? After all, here is Satan sitting on the throne of the kingdom of this world, having an I.Q. which far exceeds the greatest mind of any human!

SOME QUESTIONS TO ASK OUR SELF…Atomic Bomb Operation Castle - Romeo wikimedia public domain

.

So, having said all this, this devotional would like to ask the next series of questions…

.

For instance, if Satan’s I.Q. is astronomical, then did mere men really invent the atomic bomb, or did Satan?

.

Yes, did humans invent the A-bomb: humans with only an I.Q. of maybe 150? Or was it http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ISIL_Execution_of_man_September_2014.jpgthe, “god of this world”, who has an I.Q. of perhaps 1,000,000+?

.

And is this present-day Islamic Jihad really a man-contrived religious movement? Or is Lucifer, who has an unbelievable I.Q., really the master-mind?Gay Parade - Wikimedia - GNU Free Documentation License 

.

Is this present-day homosexual uprising the mere product of human desire? Or is, “the god of this world”, who has incredible power over unsaved humans, really behind all this?

.

Who really invents and manufactures new inventions? Do humans with an I.Q. of maybe https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Texting_closeup.jpg150 think up all this stuff? Or is the, “god of this world”, inventing all these things, who has an I.Q. of perhaps 1,000,000+?

.

Who really writes the songs? Do humans with an I.Q. of maybe 150? Or is it the, “god of this world”, who once was the master-musician of http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:NOMG01ThankGodForSatan.jpgHeaven?

.

Who really causes the great paradigm shifts around the world? Is it mere men who can just barely manage our own little lives, or is it, “the god of this world”, and all his hellish host of evil angels?

WHO REALLY RULES HERE?

.

And so, these are just a few questions that we must ask ourselves, knowing that, “the god of this world”, is hard at work, day and night, deceiving the world.

.

There are countless radio and television talk shows that all give credit to mere humans for all the various inventions, fashions, ideologies, political events, and etc..

SATAN IS A VERY HARD-WORKER

.

But what we do not realize or perhaps, ignore altogether, is that this world is under the rule of the invisible, “god of this world”, Lucifer. And in his jealous rage, he leaves nothing to chance! But along with his innumerable host of evil angels, his Antichrist spirit is, “that spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” Ephesians 2:2, 3, to accomplish his purpose, in which he, “deceives the whole world!” Revelation 12:9

.

Now, just using a little common sense, it doesn’t take a whole lot of intelligence to arrive at the obvious answer to these above questions.

.

.

GOD’S IN ULTIMATE CONTROL

.

.

Fortunately, Satan has to answer to Jehovah God for everything he does! And so, God doesn’t allow Satan to do just anything, unless it will be for the ultimate good of God’s people. And so we can rest confident that things haven’t got out of control…“And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and He (God) does according to His will in the army of Heaven, and among the inhabitants of the Earth: and none can stay His hand, or say unto Him, ‘What doest Thou?'” Daniel 4:35

.

This and other similar passages give us comfort, knowing that God is still in control!

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Let me not be ignorant of Satan’s devices, in his role as, “god of this world”. But let me be, “as wise as a serpent” in regards to just what is behind all the so-called creativity and genius of this world…

LOCATION OF THE REVELATION 12 DRAGON…

.

Wikipedia star-charts winter constellation in West

.

The Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. The Dragon’s tail-tip is Pleiades and the lower shaft of his tail is partly of Aries  and Pisces. Then with aid of a dark and starry night, you may begin to connect the mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are made of a few stars: the front legs partially of stars from Taurus . The back legs and rear fin are made of 6 stars from the Cetus Constellation.

.

BODY HARD TO SEE

.

The long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark, starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus .
