ATHEISM

.

 

One of Satan’s last great deceptions has been this ideology known as “Atheism”.

.

Yes, in spite of nature’s many witnesses to God’s creative power, Satan has somehow deceived the world into believing that all this beauty, wisdom, love, poetry, and law & order found throughout nature has been the result of some accidental cosmic explosion!

“OPPOSITIONS OF SCIENCE, FALSELY SO-CALLED”

.

But of course, Satan does not rest satisfied with this one great deception.

.

Another deception being thrust upon Mankind is the false science knohttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Human_stress.jpgwn as psychiatry.

.

Yes, over the past several hundred years, Satan has concocted and developed this clever opposition of, “science, falsely so-called”. 1st Timothy 6:20

.

And he has successfully convinced the vast multitudes (including the Christian community) that many people are suffering from a physical disease of the brain.

NEGATING THE TRUTH

.

Now just how does this false science help Satan to achieve his goal?

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Capricho_43,_El_sue%C3%B1o_de_la_raz%C3%B3n_produce_monstruos.jpg

Simple!

.

If Satan can convince the world that there is no such thing as devil possession and satanic harassment, then he has successfully negated the many Bible accounts concerning these things.

.

Because the Bible makes numerous references to people being harassed, and even possessed by evil spirits.

DEMONIC ACTIVITY IN SCRIPTURE

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ma%C3%AEtre_inconnu,_%C3%A9cole_flamande_-_David_jouant_de_la_Harpe_devant_Sa%C3%BCl.jpg

.

From the account of King Saul’s so-called “bi-polar” episodes, to the man possessed by multiple personalities, to the child who seemed to suffer from so-called “epilepsy” or perhaps from so-called “autism”, to the woman who had the power of divination, the Bible makes clear that these were all the direct result of demonic activity! (see 1st Samuel 16:23, Mark, 5:1-13, Mark 9:17-29, Acts 16:16)

PSYCHIATRY CHALLENGES BIBLE’S AUTHORITY

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

And in Satan’s on-going strategy of seemingly erasing himself out of existence, so also, this false science of psychiatry only further diminishes mankind’s belief in what the Bible reveals concerning Satan.

SOULS HELD IN BONDAGE

.

And also, those who are suffering from these so-called mental illnesses continue to be held in bondage, thinking they cannot overcome their hopeless condition.

Oh yes, by faithfully taking a certain pill, they find some degree of relief from their “malady”.

.

But in reality, it is only because Satan backs off from his mental oppression that these suffering souls return to some degree of sanity.

.

Thus, the pills get the credit for helping the demon-harassed person, when in truth, it was only because the evil angel backed off.

SATAN WAITS TO POUNCE

.

And yet, when such persons are tempted to throw away their medicine, Satan comes back with fury to thrust them into some form of crazy behavior, until they finally return to taking their pills.

THE SPIRIT OF FEAR

.

Listen to Paul in 2nd Timothy 1:7…“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

.

Here we see that fear is a spirit: Satan’s Antichrist spirit!

.

And much of so-called mental illness is based upon fear in one form or another.

POWER, LOVE, AND A SOUND MIND ALSO A SPIRIT

.

But this above verse from 2nd Timothy 1:7 also reveals that “power, love, and a sound mind”, are likewise a spirit: the Holy Spirit!

PERFECT PEACE!

.

Well, the prophet, Isaiah, makes the most wonderful revelation…“Thou (God) wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee!” Isaiah 26:3http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

.

Here we have the remedy for so-called mental illness: to keep one’s mind continually focused on Jesus!

.

Just think of it! Perfect peace!

PERFECT PEACE

.

Simple! Perfect peace is achieved by immersing one’s self in God’s Word throughout our day!mark on forhead

.

Listen to Psalm 1:2…“But his delight is in the law (Word) of the LORD; and in His law (God’s Word) doth he meditate day and night.”

.

Here it is! Here is the very simple remedy for so-called mental illness! To be fully immersed in God’s Word, from morning to night!

.

.

.

.

.

DON’T DISCARD “MEDICINE”

.

Now, one word of caution!

.800px-Straitjacket-rear wikipedia public domain

Satan would love nothing more than to cause some newer Christian with a history of so-called, mental illness, to throw away their “medication”, so that he can return and thrust them back into some insane episode!

.

And by so-doing, Christianity gets the proverbial “black-eye”.

.

.

SATAN WAITING TO POUNCE

.

The Christian must continue taking his or her “medication”, as theyhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg continue to grow in grace and knowledge of the Bible.

.

God has no problem with the Christian continuing on with “medication”.

.

What God is truly concerned with, is for that Christian to continue hiding God’s great and precious promises in the heart, learning to live by His Word on a daily basis.

.

Yes, God’s great desire for that Christian is to get his or her heavenly armor on, so that Satan can no longer harass them!

.

.

BECOME A SEASONED CHRISTIAN!

.

And then, after years of becoming a stable Christian, that now well-seasoned Christian may https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianandapollyon.jpgdecide to diminish or quit that “medicine” altogether, now confident that He or she can live intelligently according to God’s Word!

.

Of course, don’t be surprised if Satan comes as a false Holy Spirit, tempting you to throw away your “medication”, making it seem as though it is God who is testing your faith!

.

And then, Satan will mercilessly thrust you back into some form of insanity, thus further bolstering this false ideology of psychiatry!

.

KEEP GROWING!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg

But the fact is, the Christian can continue to live a complete and rewarding life in Christ, regardless that he or she continues on their “medication”.

.

Just keep growing in Christ’s Word!

.

That’s the important thing!

.

That’s the main thing!

.

That’s the only thing!

ATHEISM AND THE NUMBER “6”

.

And so, without going into a lengthy discussion, let’s just say that of all the 7 heads of Antichrist, the head which most closely aligns with atheism would logically be the 6th head. And why the 6th head? The Book of Revelation, Chapter 13 warns that the Antichrist Beast has a number of 666. And it describes this number as being the “number of a man”. The number “6” in Scripture has to do with “Man”. It is a number which reminds of the 6th Day of Creation; the day that Man was created. Man was created on the 6th day. And so, Mankind is very much connected with the number “6”

.

And since atheism is the religion which holds Mankind as the supreme ruler of Earth, then the number “6”, being the number of Man, seems to correspond to the 6th head of Antichrist, very well.

.

Now these ideas may not be “written in stone”, as they say. And nothing hinges upon, nor falls apart, with or without these theories. But sufficed to say, there is strong evidence that these concepts have biblical support.

.

And so, this 6th star in the Revelation 12 Dragon’s wave of water, would correspond to the 6th head of the Antichrist Beast. And as already said, “waves” in Scripture, represent the many false ideologies which Satan has flooded the world with, throughout time. So that is why Signs Of Heaven website believes that atheism was the 6th head of Antichrist.
