In today’s scripture text it talks about Lucifer’s fall! “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” Howbeit, it is in the context of the fall of the king of Babylon. In the Book of Daniel, it clearly portrays the king of Babylon as the character of the anti-Christ. In essence, it’s as if when you see the anti-Christ you are seeing Satan! The popular consensus is that Lucifer fell and is Satan, likewise Satan will fall again through the anti-Christ and be cast into the Lake of Fire. This is similar to when Christ Jesus said that when you see Him, you see the Father, and that we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit. Satan wants to be like the One True God, the anti-Christ is his son, and the 666 cleaving to human flesh is his version of his spirit living in us! Since the deception in the Garden of Eden, Satan wants us to believe that we can be wise as God, and control our destiny through the knowledge of good and evil, and entices us to obey him through the pleasures of the flesh, pleasures of the eyes, and our ego. That deception brought disobedience to the True God, brought spiritual death, gave sin dominion over our behavior, and gives rise to the system of the anti-Christ.
It is only by God’s plan of redemption, through his Son Christ Jesus, that we can be reconciled to a right relationship with the Spirit of God. Christ Jesus gave His life on the Cross to put our sin in remission, which defeats Satan, the anti-Christ, and the 666 for whosoever will believe in Him.
This scripture verse is very interesting, “For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” The Bible paints a very clear picture of the nature of the antichrist, and the modern god of knowledge and information is phenomenal in it’s distribution through the flesh. Many people speculate that the satellite system in space, the second heaven, is a tool that is instrumental in ushering in the system of the anti-Christ. It is the second heaven by thinking of it this way;- all the way up to the blue sky is the first heaven, higher up is the second heaven where are all the stars, and the third heaven is even higher where is the Kingdom of God. Satan rules the airways, the first two heavens, but not the Kingdom of God. It’s clear that the modern god of knowledge is not talking about the Living God, nor the Message of the Cross of Christ, nor of the presence of the Holy Spirit. It is safe to say that this type of modern technology is of Satan and is a tool of the anti-Christ within the flesh of humanity. Through this technology of knowledge and information, the anti-Christ exalts his throne above the stars of heaven, and sits within the congregation of the people, in the sides of the north (the north seems to be the brain, but not to dismiss an earthly kingdom as well).
We should always store up treasure in our heart that surpasses the first two heavens and we will receive from God who lives in the Third Heaven. Because of what Christ Jesus did for us on the Cross, He makes intercession for us at the Throne of God. We don’t rely on phenomenal knowledge and information because that comes from the first two heavens, and the airways are the territories of Satan and the anti-Christ who will be thrown down into Hell. The Spirit of Christ, the Holy Spirit, lives in us to give us victory over the world, the flesh, and Satan.
“Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?” After the Great Tribulation, imagine being able to see the anti-Christ after he is cast down and defeated by Christ Jesus! Everyone saying, “Look isn’t that the one who caused the ten kingdoms of the New World Order to tremble, that utterly destroyed the cities at the Battle of Armageddon, and that held people into bondage with his 666?” The day of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ will give us that day! It will be a wonderful day of rejoicing for those who accept the atonement of sin that Christ Jesus made for us on the Cross. There is no amount of the knowledge of good and evil that will cause us not to need the Spirit of the Living God. Knowledge and information does not redeem our spirit and soul, only the remission of sin through what Christ Jesus did for us on the Cross can do that. The Holy Spirit lives through our spirit, not through carnal knowledge and information. Technology can reach to the first and second heavens, but the All-Powerful, All-Knowing, and Ever-Present nature of God goes far above that into the Third Heaven.
All the kings of the nations lie in their graves in the glory given to them by those who brought them to power. But the anti-Christ is cast out of his grave, doesn’t even have a resting place, he is like a detestable off shoot with blood-soaked clothing. The anti-Christ is like someone killed in battle and then heaved into a pit of stones, and just like a carcass being trampled on. He will not be joined with the kings who have received honor in burial, because he has destroyed the kingdoms of the land, and killed his own people who obeyed him. The seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.
Praise God! We do not have to bow down and worship the Beast, the anti-Christ and the 666! We can come to the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ who has already won the battle. At the Cross of Christ, we have the remission of sin and the presence of the Holy Spirit to help us through the difficult days leading up to the Great Tribulation. The spirit of the anti-Christ becomes more intense day by day! We die to ourselves as Christ died on the Cross and we take up our Cross everyday to follow Christ Jesus. Our sinful nature is buried just like Christ was buried for three days. And we will be resurrected with a new glorified body even as Christ Jesus was risen from the dead in a physical glorified body. “It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:” 1 Corinthians 15:43
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcass trodden under feet. Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.” Isaiah 14:12-20 King James Version (KJV)
