The Devil Made Me Do It! Part 30: “The Robin Hood Conspiracy!”

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!”)

For those of us who grew up on stories like Robin Hood, the carehttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Robin_shoots_with_sir_Guy_by_Louis_Rhead_1912.pngfree renegade life of Robin and his, ‘merry band of marauders’, has held a special place in our hearts!

.

After all, what could hold a greater magical fascination than to live in those enchanting days, eating and drinking and laughing and joking while taking from the rich and giving to the poor?

.

What a carefree life they must have lived, above the law of the land and beyond its reach!

TAKING FROM THE RICH, GIVING TO THE POOR?

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Four_Yeomen_Have_Merry_Sport_with_a_Stout_Miller.PNG

.

And taking from the rich and giving to the poor!

.

Such a noble cause! Right?

.

“No”, you say?

.

Well, you’re correct, of course! Yes, as Christians, we understand that it’s not right to steal, even from the rich! And even if it were legal to do this, it still doesn’t square with the Bible!

.

No, all such acts of humanitarianism should emanate from the love and self-sacrificing generosity of the heart!

.

To feel sorry for the poor is one thing.

.

But to demand others to give their hard-earned money to relieve those poor is quite another thing!

.

That may be the way socialist governments operate, but not Christians!

LUCIFER, THE GOD OF THIS WORLD

.

But there is another aspect to Robin Hood which must be addressed. And today’s devotional will http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGpresent a very big concept about how this fallen world operates, and how it deceives earth’s inhabitants.

.

You see, long ago, Lucifer, the fallen rebel angel of Heaven was cast down to this earth and allowed to mold this world into his very own selfish image. And as this website has often pointed out, the God of Heaven has given Lucifer various names and titles, such as “the god of this world”, as well as the “prince of this world” (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4, John 12:31 & 14:30 & 16:11)

.

Most people, are oblivious to this truth. And even a great percentage of the Christian community do not fully understand this truth.

.

Nevertheless, even though people do not believe this fact, doesn’t make this fact any less true! After all, this unseen rebel angel and his fellow fallen angels can do their deceptions and destruction far more easily if nobody believes they really exist.

THIS ANTICHRIST WORLD-SYSTEM

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGNow, one of the ongoing projects of this master-deceiver was (and is) to create a world-system in which earth’s inhabitants are molded into his fallen image, thereby securing them solidly under his control and rulership.

.

And as the Bible says concerning the people of this world…“And they (the world) worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast (the world-system): and they worshipped the beast (the world-system), saying, Who is like unto the beast (the world-system)? who is able to make war with him?” Revelation 13:4 (parenthetical comments by this website Editor)

ROBIN HOOD:  CHEAP IMITATION OF JESUS & HIS FOLLOWERS

.

.

Now just what does that quaint and charming book, Robin Hood (and movies), have to do with Satan, “the god of this world”?

.

Well, Christians are not to be “ignorant of his devices”, as 2nd Corinthians 2:11 admonishes us! We are to be savvy about this world, and not to be the least bit naive or unlearned.

.

Robin Hood is actually a very cleverly written counterfeit of the Bible! Just look at how Jesus led His own disciples about during His earthly ministry. Can’t we see the similarity between these two groups? Yes, just like the mythical character, Santa Clause, is a counterfeit of God, so also, Robin Hood and his followers was made to take the place of Jesus and His followers!

A WORLD FULL OF CLEVER COUNTERFEITS!

.

But the story of Robin Hood is just one of many counterfeits which the Devil has invented to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Luther95theses.jpgobscure the truth! There are perhaps thousands or even millions of close counterfeits which Satan has invented over time, or raised up in centuries past, to erase, confuse, or obscure the truth. Why, even some of the great Christian Reformers have had their own testimony almost completely erased by counterfeits bearing their signature.

.

For instance, when the name, Martin Luther is mentioned, most people no longer know who he was! And this is incredible since God dramatically changed the entire course of history through the ministry of Luther. But Satan greatly buried Luther’s accomplishments in the minds of Mankind.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

Proverbs 29:29

.

Well, the Good News is that this is still the day in which any and every man, woman, and child can renounce this evil world (in the quietness of their own heart).

.

And those who do throw off Satan’s counterfeit regime, can begin a spiritual sojourn out of this world of confusion and climb the pathway of truth, which leads to life-everlasting!

.

And one day soon, all who did make this end-time exodus will enter into the long-awaited Promised Land of joy unspeakable, which God has waiting for all the Heaven-bound Pilgrims who likewise made that sojourn, throughout history!

LOCATING THE ARCHER

.

“He hath bent his bow, and set me as a mark for the arrow. He hath caused the arrows of His quiver to enter into my reins. I was a derision to all my people; and their song all the day.” Lamentations 3:12-14

.

Orion travels through the night skies, starting about late September in the pre-dawn hours. This 1st office which Orion holds, as an Archer, is fairly easy to see. His bow is pointed and bent as if ready to shoot his arrows.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Orion_IAU.svg

.

But why astronomers have never noticed this Dragon to his left, is truly a puzzle! It’s so obvious; at least his crocodile mouth is obvious. (Perhaps God is sending the message that Satan (the real Dragon) is so obviously real, and yet so few in this world are ready to recognize him.)

.

This Archer-Orion corresponds to the 1st Horseman of Revelation, Chapter 6, speaking of a rider with a bow who goes out conquering. 

.

And so this article is dedicated to show just what Orion the Archer is speaking of, in Scripture, and how this all relates to you and me. So read on and observe…
