Jesus has overcome the world! This is our hope and our joy in this evil world! The devil has so many lies in the world. It's actually astounding. He's distracting us with tons of garbage, lies, false religions, false theories, etc...
But it's really no wonder, is it? We know this is the state the world will be in when Christ returns.
2 Thess 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, (POWER and SIGNS and LYING WONDERS) 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: (the lying wonders of Satan) 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
I call it Supernatural Dumbness...
The world is so distracted, and not just the world, but professing Christians seem to be caught up in it and forget to focus on God and His truth instead of these inconsequential matters.
Flat Earther conspiracy theory, for example:
If you're expecting some deep scientific arguments proving this one way or another, I'm happy to disappoint you...
In the grand scheme of things, does it really even matter if the earth is flat and somehow, magically, we've never found the edge and it seems round to us?
This is my point, entirely. No. It does not matter.
The devil tries to distract us and intrigue us with things like this.
In the furthering of the Kingdom of God, and preaching of the gospel, does that argument even matter one little tiny bit?
Satan has so many people distracted by this nonsense and so many other ridiculous things that keep us from just focusing on God and His plan of redemption and salvation, which is about to come to a close very soon!
Stop letting the devil win!!!
Focus on what matters. God.
Having said that, it is important to understand the distractions and what he is attempting to keep our eyes off of...
Satan has set the world up for it, so the world will think they're "aliens", or possibly some "evolved" creature. We know aliens are not Biblical, but devils are, and Satan has created this idea of aliens along with "evolution" so he can distract and obscure the truth when the trumpet blows.
We know that there are evil spirits and fallen angels, but that Satan is not one that was imprisoned at the time of the flood, and that he will take a third of the angels of heaven with him when he's cast to the earth at the time of the Antichrist (Rev 12), so it's likely that some of the angels are working with Satan now, and these are also in the world deceiving and lying and creating doubt and confusion along with these spirits which are the offspring of the fallen angels, which is what Satan does best.
Dan 10:13 shows that there are evil spirits that attempt to thwart the angels doing God's work.
NO, there are no aliens... they are evil spirits pretending to be aliens! They are attempting to fool us and confuse us!
I'm pretty certain that Satan has his demons pretending to be aliens to distract us and is likely even setting up the world for the Fifth Trumpet...
We know evil spirits can assume forms of men and other things from the Bible, and in Enoch 19 we read: And Uriel said to me: Here shall stand the angels who have connected themselves with women, and their spirits assuming many different forms...
So which is it? Creation or Evolution? Both?
The theory of evolution is just another distraction to turn people from the Truth and keep us thinking about ungodly things instead of focusing on God!
Like "Jews are everything evil and responsible for it all".
Satan hates the Jews because God chose Abraham to make a people for Himself. It doesn't matter that the Orthodox Jews are not Godly and are not God's people, he still hates them and wants us to hate them, and wants the world to blame them for everything and take our eyes off the real enemy... him... Satan...
The Jews who do not believe in Jesus are just as lost as the rest of the world. And Satan has false prophecies to deceive them, just like he does the rest of the world...
Common misunderstandings about modern Israel (in Rabbinic Judaism) and the Jews, and what the Jewish End Time prophecy expectations are.
How the Israeli/Jewish Feasts fit in Biblical Prophecy
Israel... should we love and honor Israel or hate it?
We should be just as concerned about the lost souls in Israel as we are in our own countries. They're no better or worse and deserve our love as much as any.
Some of his other lies and distractions:
A rapture that takes God's people out of the world before the Great Tribulation is a YUGE LIE from Satan
We can worship any god in any religion and still be saved, is another YUGE LIE from Satan
No works, no love for God, easy believism salvation, in another YUGE LIE from Satan
Myriads of false religions... from Satan
So is there any good news for the world in 2023? Sadly, no, it does not appear that anything will get better this year, and will likely get worse...
The devil has almost complete control of this world and his minions even tell us their plans ahead of time. They know we can't do anything about it.
With enough fear, hopelessness, and devastation in our lives, we will be clamoring for a savior...
And then he'll trot out his puppet avatar and take over the world, claiming to be god, and demanding to be worshiped as god.
The people who are responsible for doing his work, the "They", believe they'll be rewarded, but they don't understand that their god hates them, and he'll stab them in the back when he's done with them.
Satan is not some dumb evil spirit flitting about, lying and whispering in people's ears trying to get them to stumble.
He's a very powerful fallen angel that has infiltrated our societies and taken control of our governments and has almost complete control of this world!
2 Cor 4:4 says that Satan is the "god of this world" and that he's blinded the minds of those who don't believe in Jesus.
Satan has so many battle fronts going on... if you look around and think what you see is reality, think again. There is a major war going on in the spiritual realm and you're part of it one way or another. You're either one of satans pawns and you're cannon fodder, or you're a warrior for Christ. There's no middle ground. If you don't belong to God, you belong to the devil, and he hates you!
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
So, I'm sorry, but I don't have any good news for 2023, and we can even see what their plans are for the coming year and beyond...
Should we be focusing on the bad news? NO! This is just the world and we already know it's coming. We should not be surprised. We should be prepared!
We look for the Confirmation of the Covenant and the coming of the Lord, preparing for the Tribulation and teaching all who will listen about the coming days, preaching the glorious gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ!
My hope is that the Confirmation happens and the final seven years begins in 2025, but of course that remains to be seen.
Our hope is in the Lord Jesus and the promises of God! We know how it ends!
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
We must be prepared, watching and waiting lest we be caught naked with our proverbial pants down.
The way to do this, to be prepared, is to be full of the Holy Spirit, seeking Him daily, and praying without ceasing.
The power of God will manifest in us when we do so, and God will do miracles and keep us invisible to the enemy, providing a path for those who serve Him in the last days, so that they can instruct and help those who don't understand to come to the truth.
But, we must first OVERCOME! This is the key!
The POWER of God is Jesus Christ! His Name is Power!
What's next? What are we waiting for in prophecy?
Aliens are not Biblical, but devils are...
