The Devil Made Me Do It! Part 13: “Revelation 11:18: Why Are The Nations Angry?”

To read Part 1, go here…Today’s Devotional – October 13th (The Devil Made Me Do It!)

“And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come,

and the time of the dead, that they should be judged,

and that Thou shouldest give reward

unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints,

and them that fear Thy name, small and great;

and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Revelation 11:18

.

.

.

 

 

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

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Flip_Wilson_-_1970.jpg

And this was merely mocking Christians, who were seemingly obsessed with pointing the finger at the Devil, as being the real cause of the world’s problems.

 

.

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

“THE NATIONS WERE ANGRY”

.

Right now, multitudes in this world are stirred up into a frenzied mob, the likes of which the world never before witnessed!

And this is not just confined to any one nation. No, this is an ever-increasing world-wide phenomenon!

.

And this is an end-time fulfillment of Revelation 11:18…“And the nations were angry, and Thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged…

THE BLAME GAME

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpg

Now the general consensus in this rather atheistic world is to blame all this anger and hatred on mere humans as being the cause.

.

The finger-pointing has never been so great!

.

The proverbial blame-game is now being played on a pandemic level!

“SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES”

.

But the Bible reveals the true source of the world’s troubles…“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

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

.

Here is revealed that our great worldwide crisis is actually the work of evil angels headed up by, “the god of this world”, Lucifer, who was long ago given the title of the “Devil” and “Satan”. (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4)

.

Yes, it is no mere coincidence that all this worldwide agitation is now occurring!

.

Satan and his armies of evil angels are currently whipping up the world’s inhabitants into a frenzied mob on many fronts!

“THE SPIRIT…IN THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE”

.

Listen once again to Ephesians…“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

.

Here is another incredible revelation which pulls back the curtains, so to speak, and exposes the true source of agitation among the inhabitants of Satan’s kingdom of this world.

.

Truth-be-told, the spirit of Antichrist is merely the spirit of, “the prince of the power of the air”, which, “now works in the children of disobedience”, as Ephesians 2:2 reveals!

.

Yes, the spirit of Antichrist is the spirit that indwells the people of this fallen world, filling their hearts with rage.

.

And as a puppet-master pulls the strings of his puppets, so too, Satan orchestrates every unconverted heart to do his bidding.  

.

“THE MAN THAT MADE THE EARTH TO TREMBLE?”

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGAnd listen to this next passage from Isaiah, regarding Lucifer…“They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee (Lucifer), and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?” Isaiah 14:16, 17 

.

Here again is further confirmation that Lucifer is the true source of power and inspiration behind the world’s current crisis.

.

He is the one who “made the earth to tremble and did shake the kingdoms”!

“THAT OLD SERPENT…SATAN”

Revelation 20:2

.

Now, is all this crazy mob-frenzy and murderous thuggery going to continue on to the very end?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Brown_tree_snake_Boiga_irregularis_2_USGS_Photograph.jpg.

Not necessarily. Satan, for his own deceptive purposes, may just back off for a time, and return the world to some level of peace. We just cannot predict the actions of such an evil genius like Satan, whose I.Q. may be a thousand times higher than any human!

.

Satan had long ago devised his plan of attack for these last days. And we are not ignorant that Satan moves like a side-winding serpent, never in a straight direction!

.

And so, this serpent-like deceiver can switch directions any time he wishes, bringing about unexpected societal paradigm shifts!

“GO INTO THE CLEFTS OF THE ROCKS”

.

Well, the Good News is that “But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:” Romans 5:20.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpg

.

Yes, as this world crisis continues to escalate, God has prepared a place of safety for His people during these fearful last events…“In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?” Isaiah 2:20-22

.

Yes, Isaiah prophesy’s here about these last moments of time when God’s people will take refuge during God’s great judgments being poured out upon the Earth.

“HIDE THYSELF…UNTIL THE INDIGNATION BE OVERPAST”

.

Yes, God has provided a hiding place for His trusting children, in the ragged Rocks of His Word.

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

.

And Isaiah 26:20, 21 counsels us to, “Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity:”

.

Here is a further confirmation that God’s people have a place of refuge during the coming crisis (which is already beginning). 

.

.

.

.

.

But the Bible makes clear exactly where are these chambers of refuge.

.

Listen to the Psalms…

“For in the time of trouble

He shall hide me in His pavilion:

in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me;

He shall set me up upon a Rock. 

And now shall mine head be lifted up

above mine enemies round about me…

Thou art my hiding place;

Thou shalt preserve me from trouble;

Thou shalt compass me about

with songs of deliverance. Selah.”

Psalm 27:5, 6 & 32:7

.

.

.

.

May God’s people now take refuge in, “the secret of His tabernacle.”

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).
