“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

.

.

.

.

.

 

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.

.

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

SATAN, “THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

But the horrifying fact is, the Devil does indeed cause the vast percentage of the world’s inhabitants to do a great amount of things!

. 

And today’s signature verse from Ephesians 2:2 reveals that Satan is indeed… “the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

.

And let’s face it! To admit that the entire world’s inhabitants are filled with this evil spirit is more than anybody is willing to accept, much less even admit!

Revelation 13:4 

.

At a huge gala celebratory extravaganza, one of Hollywood’s idols, gave thanks to Satan for inspiring him in his latest movie production… “Thank you Satan for inspiring me…”

.

Well, of course, the audience laughed and applauded.

“the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

Ephesians 2:2

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGAnd even though that movie mogul may (or may not) have been speaking in jest, he nevertheless was uttering a great and profound truth, which even many Christians are not aware of.

.

And that truth is found in such places as Ephesians 2:2…“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:”

.

Here we see that Satan (whom 2nd Corinthians 4:4 names as “the god of this world”), is the invisible power which comes through the air to cause this antichrist world to do his bidding in the affairs of life.

.

And Hollywood is no exception.

LUCIFER, “THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

Yes, Lucifer, in his role as “the god of this world”, no doubt is responsible for much or all of what comes out of Hollywood. After all, it would be the height of naivety to think that Satan and his vast armies merely sit by and allow we humans to achieve our own accomplishments.

.

No, Satan and his legion of unseen spirits probably have their fingers in most every thing that goes on in this world! As Ephesians 2:2 says, Satan is, “now working in the children of disobedience”. He’s a very hard-workin’ Devil! And so is his incredibly vast army of unseen evil angels!

TELEVISION, ‘THE IMAGE THAT SPEAKS’?

.

And concerning these last days, the Bible prophesied about an image that has the ability to speak and corrupt the world.

.

And of course, television fills the bill.

.

Yes, TV (and movies) is about as greatly the fulfillment of this Revelation 13 “False Prophet” as anything could possibly be!

.

.

.

.

.

.

“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:81st_Academy_Awards_Ceremony.JPG1st Timothy 1:15 

.

And so, yes, that Hollywood mogul was very correct to give thanks to Satan.

.

It’s just too bad he was possibly just trying to be funny!

.

And truth-be-told he needs the grace and mercy of God as greatly as any of the rest of us do!

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).
