The Devil Made Me Do It! Part 28: “When The Devil Whispers ‘Murder!'”

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”

2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

But the horrifying fact is, the Devil does indeed cause the vast percentage of the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGworld’s inhabitants to do a great amount of things!

.

After all, Ephesians, Chapter 2 reveals a truth that practically nobody realizes or accepts! It is perhaps the most egregious truth in all of the Bible!

.

And this verse is, “…the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

.

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

INNER-VOICES

.

So just what did these three completely separate news stories all have in common with each other?

.

Well, it was later discovered that in each case, these persons all claimed to have heard an inner-voice directing them in what to do or in what to say. (In the case of the preacher, he freely revealed that he was spoken to by an unseen entity who gave him that prophecy.)

THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY?

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sigmund_Freud_LIFE.jpgAnd on a popular day-time television talk show, one of the hosts called a well-known political figure crazy because he believes that Jesus talks to him occasionally. “That’s the very definition of ‘insanity'”, she laughingly remarked.

.

And this kind of thinking should not surprise us.

.

After all, we’re living in a very atheistic society! And so, most people would agree that anyone hearing voices must have some sort of mental illness.

“AND HE HAD POWER TO GIVE LIFE UNTO THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST”

Revelation 13:15

.

So what’s going on? Was that TV talk show host correct? Are people who hear inner-voices merely crazy?

.

The fact is, that we are now living in a day in which thousands, even millions are claiming that they are hearing a voice which talks to them at times.

.

Is this some sort of mass insanity?

.

.

.

THE IMAGE GIVEN POWER TO SPEAK

.

And what does the Bible have to say about all this? After all, the Bible is filled with true historical accounts of God speaking to various persons on sundry occasions.

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

.

The fact is, we are  now living in the very day in which the Bible foretold the following…“And he (the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13) had power to give life unto the image of the (1st) beast, that the image of the (1st) beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the (1st) beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15

.

Here is foretold that the day would come in which an image would be given the power to speak.

MASS HIGH-TECH BRAINWASHING

.

And anyone familiar with this website probably knows that this talking-image has been identified as being the various high-tech electronic media such as television, Internet, radio.

.

Yes, Satan is now able to project his evil image through the airways, transferring that image into the homes and into the hearts of an ever-increasing percentage of the world’s inhabitants.

.

But this talking image of Revelation 13 is not limited to these devices alone. No, Satan has now been permitted to speak directly into the minds of men, women, and even children, leading unsuspecting millions to believe that it is God speaking to them. But it’s not God. It’s the Devil.

SATAN NOW PERMITTED TO SPEAK

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Norman_Bates.jpgAnd that mother was fully convinced that it was God telling her to do the unthinkable to her four precious children.

.

And that teenager who slaughtered his peers, reveals to police that it was a voice telling him to commit this heinous and horrific act.

.

And that evangelist freely acknowledges that the “Holy Spirit” was giving him that prophetic utterance.

ANY GOOD NEWS HERE?

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgWell, what’s the Good News in all this?

.

Well, this is still the day of Salvation. And if anyone is plagued by this false Holy Spirit or any other type of voice in their mind, there is deliverance. And those who are held captive in this web of sin are warned to flee to the mountains: the spiritual mountains of God’s holiness!

.

And through unceasing prayer and Bible contemplation and total consecration to Christ, that needy soul can be freed from the image that has been given power to speak.

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).
