The Devil Made Me Do It! Part 21: “The Dumbing Down of Society About History”

To read the first part of this topic, go here…March 18 (The Devil Made Me Do It! Part 5: “Satan’s Army of Mockers!”)

.

.

.

.

.

 

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

SATAN, “THE GOD OF THIS WORLD”

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

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!

.

There have been several articles concerning “The Dumbing Down of Society” (click here to read).

.

And yet, today’s devotional will hone-in on the lack of history concerning the Church that society should be teaching, but does not.

INVISIBLE DEVIL STILL A VERY HARD WORKER!

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

But why should it be a surprise that society avoids Church history? After all, this planet is ruled over by “the god of this world”, Lucifer, that fallen, rebel angel! (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4)

.

And even though he keeps an extremely low profile, his evil works are very visible in every direction one looks!

HIGHER THOUGHT NOT VALUED SO MUCH

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:James_Bond_Themed_Prop_Hire.jpgBut in thttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tupac_graffiti_Rio_de_janeiro.jpgoday’s western societies, there is a dumbing down of the culture going on.

.

Oh yes, there are many scientific and technological discoveries.

.

But higher thought is rapidly devolving.

.

In the music world, the entertainment world, as well as general wisdom, are no longer excelling, but rather becoming more crude, with each passing year.

AMERICAN HISTORY NOW DE-EMPHASIZED

.

But even American history is no longer required, especially since it involves the Church coming here to escape the tyranny by the church-state beast of Europe during the Reformation years. And of course, because the founding fathers of this nation were Bible-based, our atheistic school-systems are totally averse to teaching any such “dangerous” events.

.

And so, just ask almost any young person the most basic questions concerning history, and most of time, chances are they don’t know what you are speaking of!

“THE SPIRIT OF ERROR…NOW WORKS IN THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE”

1st John 4:6 & Ephesians 2:2

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGWell, of course, all this ignorance is not merely the fault of our school systems. No, this is actually the evil workings of “the god of this world”, Lucifer, who controls what the societies of the world do and don’t do.

.

And let’s face it, young people who have been dumbed down in their knowledge of history are much easier to manipulate in any direction which his Satanic-Majesty wishes to lead them…“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” Hosea 4:6

.

Yes, as this above verse reveals, a lack of knowledge is a very dangerous thing!

Proverbs 25:25

.

Well, there is some very Good News! Yes, the call to come out of our ignorance goes out to any and all men, women, and children who desire to escape from this floating Devil’s Island prison-house, Planet Earth!

And those who desire with all their hearts to renounce this present world, and begin to live for the Promised Land which is soon to come, will want to remember this closing “great and precious promise”

.

“Through wisdom is an house builded;

and by understanding it is established:http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled

with all precious and pleasant riches.

A wise man is strong;

yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength.

For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war:

and in multitude of counsellors there is safety…

Thy testimonies also are my delight

and my counsellors”

Proverbs 24-3-6 & Psalm 119:24

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).
