A BIBLICAL STUDY DEALING WITH GIANTS, ALIENS, ET'S, HYBRIDS, CRYPITIDS, CHIMERAS, AND DEMONIC DECEPTION ON A GLOBAL SCALE
PROLOGUE: LAYING THE GROUNDWORK
"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way."
"And he [Jesus] said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven."
(Luke 10:18 KJV)
"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."
(Isaiah 14:12-14 KJV)
"Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyre, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God ; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee."
(Ezekiel 28:12-17 KJV)
"And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born."
(Revelation 12:4 KJV)
The Word of God is a supernatural book penned by 40 different men spanning nearly 1600 years, all of whom were merely the amenuenses for the real author of scripture who is God the Holy Spirit - the third Person of the Triune Godhead. It is God Himself who is the author of scripture. The divine authorship and divine, supernatural preservation of the Holy Spirit inspired scriptures is why the Bible is inerrant, infallible, and immutable; the direct communication from the divine Godhead to His fallen creation - man.
Within the divinely inspired scriptures, Creator God reveals to fallen and sin-cursed man the story of His great "Plan of the Ages." Within the 66 books that make up the full and completed canon of scripture, God opens to us history past, history present, and history yet future for all creation.
Within holy writ is included God's introduction of Himself - the Trinity (the complete unity and diversity of the Godhead who within Himself, dwells the 3 Persons of the Triune Godhead: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) - the 3 separate and distinct Persons who together are ONE GOD (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 John 5:7).
Also recorded in scripture, is the history of all creation: the angelic realm, the creation of mankind, and the rebellion and defection of God's highest angelic being, Lucifer, Lucifer's insurrection that instigated the rebellion and defection of one third of the heavenly angelic host along with Satan (Isaiah 14:12-14; Ezekiel 28:12-18; Revelation 12:4).
Within scripture we are told of the creation of man: of mankind's rebellion and loss of his perfect relationship with God that was severed by Eve's deception and Adam's conscious rebellion.
We are told the story of sin, salvation, and the redemption of sin-cursed mankind (whereby the "Word became flesh and dwelt among" His own fallen creation, John 1:14), when the very God of Glory wrapped Himself in human skin and became the Father's "only begotten (only One of His kind, that's what 'only begotten' means) Son" who would Himself give His life as a ransom for the sins of the world (John 3:14-18), thus providing grace, mercy, and pardon for ALL who are willing to believe according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
Within scripture is recorded prophesies past and already fulfilled, prophesies being fulfilled now, as well as those which will be fulfilled shortly.
What scripture gives us is a glimpse into the great cosmic "war of the ages" between the omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent GOD OF ALL CREATION, and His once most beautiful, most powerful, most highly esteemed created angelic being who, through the "mystery of iniquity," rebelled against his Creator.
This millennia long cosmic war, between holy God and the unholy, rebellious adversary Satan is the great conflict of the ages that will climax with Satan's total and complete defeat and his yet-to-come consignment into the eternal Lake of Fire that God prepared for Satan the "great deceiver" and all of the unholy minions who followed him in the great rebellion of Heaven - the angelic rebellion that also fomented the rebellion of God's most beloved creation - man, thus necessitating God's direct intervention to save the eternal souls of mankind. This is the Conflict of the Ages that is recorded in scripture.
In this series, we want to go to the scriptures and through God's Word, shine the light of truth about the beginnig of this great warfare between Almighty God and Satan, the Great Rebel and Deceiver of Man. At the heart of the warfare, weighed in the balance is nothing less than the eternal destiny of the souls of mankind. The Bible tells the story, written in advance, of Paradise lost, the redemption of mankind, and the coming redemption of ALL creation that will end in Paradise regained and an eternal NEW creation wherein NO TAINT of sin will ever again dwell.
This series will spotlight the trail of the Serpent from Genesis through Revelation. Because of the subject matter, many things will of necessity be extremely dark and disturbing to learn; the acts and effects of evil and depravity are ALWAYS disturbing to us , as they SHOULD be. However, what we need to keep forefront in our minds is this: for the believer in Christ, the WORST that happens here is the only "hell" we will ever have to endure. Our salvation is secured and sealed in Christ and neither Satan, the entire horde of fallen angels, nor all the demons of the abyss put together can do one single thing to destroy our saved, sanctified, and eternally sealed spirits. In Christ, we are INVIOLATE!
We must keep always in the forefront of our minds the fact that what scripture also does is it tells us the END from the beginning, so we KNOW with absolute certainty that Satan, and every evil power and principality LOSES and will spend all eternity in the Lake of Fire. God has foreknown it. God has decreed the end from the beginning, and God HAS ALREADY WON the conflict of the ages. It was over the instant Jesus cried from the cross "It is FINISHED." (Isaiah 46:10; John 19:30).
What we want to accomplish with this series is to explore, educate, and show FROM SCRIPTURE, the truth of what has been hidden from most of the Church regarding Satan's diabolical plans and how they have been all throughout history, and are still even now being carried out. Our goals in collaborating for this series are threefold:
(1) to strengthen and encourage a battle weary Remnant Church to keep on contending for the faith with a renewed vigor
(2) to examine and expose the deep and depraved agenda of darkness with the light of scripture so that we can more effectively understand what Satan's tactics are and how he is carrying out his dark agenda so that we may recognize it, and
3) so that we may be able to more effectively WARN those who are being deceived both before and especially after the rapture when the blood bought Church is no longer here to be the "salt and light" to a world that will plunge into a darkness of depravity, debauchery and demonic deception the likes of which were not even prevelant in the days of Noah and Lot.
I had intended for this to be PART 1, but as I began writing, this ended up being just the PROLOGUE.
Lord willing now that the groundwork has been laid, we will begin with PART 1 tomorrow titled: THE NEPHILIM AND THE SEED OF THE SERPENT.
