Why would John say that the reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work, if the devil isn't real, as some believe, or insignificant? People in general tend to shy away from speaking about the enemy of God, and thus, our enemy too. Yet, scripture speaks about him often and calls him by a number of names, which I will go into in this blog. Satan, also known as the devil, and his first name prior to his fall, Lucifer, has blinded the minds of many believers and non-believers alike by diluting just how much he impacts and oppresses people. He is the instigator of man's downfall and the one who slandered God, tempted Eve and succeeded in getting both Adam and Eve to disobey God. He's addressed as the cunning serpent in the 3rd chapter of Genesis, immediately after we learn about the creation of the world! After Jesus Christ spent 40 days in the wilderness fasting, Satan came to tempt Him when He was in a weakened physical state. When Jesus was predicting His death, Peter tried to convince him otherwise, yet Jesus recognized this as Satan speaking through Peter trying to deny prophecy and said, "Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns." Matthew 16:23. And the betrayal of Jesus Christ - who was actually betraying Him? James 1:13 tells us - "During supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him.." Doesn't that tell you something about his relevance to our story? So why ignore this key character when he is behind the destruction of the world, and most importantly, consumed by the desire to destroy our relationship with God Almighty, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit?
I'd like to add here that I'm not writing this so as to glorify Satan or to fixate on him. Quite the contrary. By recognizing him, as Jesus did and tells us to, we are able to resist and rebuke him and glorify God! By understanding how the enemy works we are wise to his ways and can nip temptation in the bud before he implants lies, like parasites, in our minds, which become difficult to overcome if we don't recognize the source of the lies deceiving us and leading us away from eternal life with God.
"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." Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)
Another reason I'm writing this is so that we can truly recognize that it's not flesh and blood that we wrestle against, but rather demonic forces working through people, knowingly or unknowingly, to upset and rattle our cages. It's also important that we better understand how and why the enemy comes against us. More on that later. However, the main reasons are to destroy our relationship with God and to get us to commit sin. Pride, selfishness, vanity, lying, anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, rage and lack of self-control are just the tip of the iceberg and the things the enemy baits us into, which become legal ground for him to accuse us before God.
For now, I want to address who Satan is by outlining the many names he's known by. Before I do this, I'd like to add that ignoring Satan doesn't mean he's ignoring you. Before I gave my life to Jesus Christ I was a New Age practitioner. 25 years of my life was spent in this false new age religion. I was fully invested in it and raised my 4 children with this worldview too. For 21 years of those 25 years I was a channel, channeling ascended masters who are demons posing as "good guys" (read my related blog) and practiced as a astrologer for the last 10 years of my career. I was also about to complete my doctorate in metaphysics. This gives you an idea of how heavily invested I was. I spoke at international conferences in London, Dublin and Canada about the Divine Feminine and also traveled to 34 countries promoting and teaching what these impostors were teaching me, which was Satanic to the core. Yet, at the time I didn't realize this, until the Lord revealed the truth to me in June 2016, the first of three parts of revelation He gave me in my conviction process. Many new agers refuse to speak about negative forces, as they call it, and get quite defensive, denying it's existence or believing that if you don't entertain it, it won't affect you. This is based on the erroneous Law of Attraction belief, which is also a misleading doctrine getting many people into hot water without realizing it. I will blog about this topic soon too. Focus on God and what He's doing in our lives, not on the enemy, however, knowing what the enemy does to distract us is wise. Now, back to the purpose of this blog.
"Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down." Revelation 12:10 (NIV)
Many believers in Jesus Christ argue that because we are saved the enemy cannot come against us. This is not entirely true. He might not be able to possess a believer, but he can certainly oppress, attack, influence and accuse them. The Book of Revelation speaks about what is to come, therefore, Revelation 12:10 tells us that until Jesus Christ returns the accuser, Satan, accuses us day and night. He is holding us ransom for our daily sin and accusing us before God! Including the unrepented sins of our forefathers, which is known as bloodline curses. Thus, he has legal ground to do this! I am the granddaughter of a 33 degree Freemason who renounced Freemasonry and became a Christian in the Pentecostal faith before his death, however, I witnessed members of my family, both believers and non-believers, myself included, suffer under the curses of his practices. In my current position I witness many other people, most of them believers in Jesus Christ, buckle under these curses because of what their living bloodline and ancestors got up to. If we do not know who the enemy is and how he operates in our lives, how can we resist him and recognize him as the sin crouching at our door seeking to devour us? "Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour!" Peter 5:8
So, who is Satan and what are his many names as stated in scripture?
1. Lucifer "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!
For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation.
On the farthest 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)
In these verses we see pride being at the heart of the matter. Thus, we know that pride is driven by our enemy. It was pride in Lucifer's heart that got him kicked out of heaven and became God's eternal enemy and, therefore, ours as believers, too. These verses tell us that Lucifer weakens the nations because of a prideful heart, something that is at the core of new age religions and the world as a whole. New Age religion teaches us we can be gods and become Christ. (Because of my new age background, I refer to this religion mostly, however, there are many others. Perhaps you will easily identify what they are.) Satanism and Luciferiansim obviously purport this extensively. A prideful heart is dangerous. The principality Leviathan rules pride, spreads gossip, slanders, lies and causes division amongst God's people and works hand-in-hand with the Jezebel principality. We must also grasp the truth that what is IN OUR HEARTS is what God sees and judges us on, like He did Lucifer. In the image below we can clearly see that the Leviathan principality comprises of the characteristics of Lucifer.
Remember, scripture tell us that we wrestle not against human people but the wickedness in high places. This wickedness creeps into people's hearts influencing the mind and therefore, controlling the emotions and will.
In Isaiah this creature is called the "day star." This has the idea of "bearer of light." This name, translated into Latin, is Lucifer. This was the name of Satan before his fall.
"How you are fallen from heaven, O day-star, son of the morning! how you are cut down to the ground, that did lay low the nations!" (Isaiah 14:12).
The true "day star" and "bearer of light" is the Lord Jesus Himself.
"It is I, Jesus, who sent My angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star."(Revelation 22:16).
Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the true light, not Lucifer as Luciferians teach, as did Helena Blavatsky the founder of Theosophy. "The true light, (Jesus Christ), which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world." (John 1:9).
2. Son Of The Morning "How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! (Isaiah 14:12).
This verse tells us what Lucifer was referred to before his fall - son of the morning - and how far he had fallen from grace in God's eyes. Based on the verses we've already covered in Isaiah 14:12-14, again we see that God abhors pride and and a devious heart, one filled with self-exaltation, selfishness and self-serving ambition. These attributes weaken a nation and keep people fixated on themselves rather than on God and serving others. Jesus Christ came to serve and set a blueprint for us to follow - service. Lucifer/Satan focuses on self-service. Self-absorbed behaviour is an open door for the enemy to mess with the mind and hence, will and emotions. Looking out for ourselves and self-interest is not something Jesus taught. That is Luciferian doctrine. Aleister Crowley, a renown Satanist, taught "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law." The demon, who calls himself Kuthumi/Kuthumi-Agrippa, whom I channeled for 21 years used to use this phrase saying: "do what thou wilt, but harm none." He preached it umpteen times. same lie, laced with a dash of truth - harm none.
3. The Anointed Cherub
‘You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: carnelian, chrysolite and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared. You were the anointed cherub that covered: and I set you, so that you were upon the holy mountain of God; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire (Ezekiel 28:12-14).
Lucifer was also called the "anointed cherub." He was God's prized angel, perfect, whom He'd put in charge of other angels, he was beautiful and super-talented. However, his vanity got the better of him and he rebelled.
Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings. (Ezekiel 14:17)
In the verse above there is no mistaking vanity, along with pride, corrupted Lucifer's perfect wisdom and God cast him out of heaven to the earth, and through Jesus Christ made a spectacle of him before kings. God cast him to earth, not any other planet, although Lucifer is associated with the planet Venus because it too is referred to as the morning star. However, it doesn't state this specifically in scripture. We can, although, confidently deduce that vanity and pride corrupt wisdom leading to an inflated, self-righteous and self-absorbed ego. When we focus too much on ourselves, our looks, intellect and being a "know-it-all," we are corrupt in God's eyes. This kind of behaviour is fueled by Lucifer/Satan. Our body is to be treated like a temple, but without God being at the centre of our lives it slips into vanity insanity and there's no room for the Lord. The love of self then becomes vain idolatry. Self-love is a big self-idolizing New Age dangling carrot leading spiritually lost and broken-hearted people into ignorant sin. When we are focused on the Lord and His love, we feel loved and don't need self-love to be healed, reformed and confident. When we are confident in the Lord, we see how ridiculous self-obsessed self-love is and how it is satanic to the core. When we are filled with God's Holy Spirit we don't hate ourselves, we are happy and at peace with ourselves because we have the love of God dwelling in us. If you hate yourself, you need to re-look your relationship with the Lord.
4. The Devil/The Tempter
The devil is one of the most popular names for this personage and temptation is synonymous with both the devil and Satan.
"Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil (Matthew 4:1).
Many believe the devil to be a red guy with horns, fangs and a fork. He generally does not appear to people as such simply because he can get more done and more out of people if he appears/poses as an "angel of light," - a pretty or handsome face and often someone offering peace and solutions. I'm not saying that good looking people are animated by the devil. Beauty is one of his masks! How often have you heard "The devil wears Prada"? It doesn't mean to say that because something or someone is beautiful, wealthy and "sophisticated" they or the situation is "safe." The devil tempts us with all sorts of things, usually beautiful things, or things that edify the flesh - the natural (material) world.
Luke 4:5 tells us "And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time." After Jesus spent 40 days fasting in the wilderness and was hungry the devil tempted Him. One of the things he tempted Jesus with was that he offered Jesus the world, why? Because he could. He is god of this world, meaning he rules over the natural world and as a result keeps people focused on the world - seeking pleasure, recognition, acceptance, fame and fortune, or at least a smoother ride financially. God blesses us with wealth, good health and safety. But if God is not a part of our lives, if there is no faith in what Jesus Christ did for us, then wealth is provided from Satan's treasury, not God's. This is a huge difference.
Satan, aka the devil is the tempter and wants to lead us into sin. When we sin he is delighted. When we break God's spiritual laws he is glorified. "The tempter came and said to Him, 'If You are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.'" (Matthew 4:3). The devil wants us to be tempted and for us to see God as tempting us. God tests us, He NEVER tempts us. When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone." James 1:13. Thus if you are being tempted to have an affair, steal, lie, be disloyal, gossip or not forgive someone, for example, you can bet your bottom dollar that the tempter, the devil, is in the house. Satan is the one who tempts people to sin. He wants to bring out the worst in each of us.
5. The Accuser/The Slanderer
According to Wikipedia, the original Hebrew term sâtan (Hebrew: שָּׂטָן) is a generic noun meaning "accuser" or "adversary", which is used throughout the Hebrew Bible to refer to ordinary human adversaries, as well as a specific supernatural entity. The word is derived from a verb meaning primarily "to obstruct, oppose". It also means "slanderer." Satan is called this because he slanders both God and humanity. In the Garden of Eden, he slandered God's character. "And the woman said to the serpent, "From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; and the serpent said to the woman, "You surely shall not die! "For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil" (Genesis 3:2,4,5). Satan was accusing God of being a liar! He was slandering Him to Eve and placing doubt in her mind as to who God is.
Satan now accuses believers. He will take anything he can accuse us of and slander us, and often gets people to slander one another. We see in Revelation 12:10 that this is in fact true. "Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down." Satan is a legalist and will accuse us of all kinds of things before God because if he has legal ground he can. Because Satan knows scripture inside out and in fact better than most people do, it is so easy for him to control the mind, will and emotions of people, thus the soul. We have to be super vigilant when it comes to our behaviour because our behaviour is what the enemy, Satan, uses against us in order to bring accusations against us in God's court of law. When there is a legal case against us, the enemy has the legal right to oppress and attack our lives and that of our family. How does he do this? Romans 1:29-31 explains this perfectly "being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful;" as does 2 Corinthians 12:20 "For I am afraid that perhaps when I come I may find you to be not what I wish and may be found by you to be not what you wish; that perhaps there will be strife, jealousy, angry tempers, disputes, slanders, gossip, arrogance, disturbances;" and Mark 7:21-23 "For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. "All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man."
These few verses, and there are many others, make it clear what the tendencies are in our sinful human character that Satan uses to get us to slander and accuse one another, and sin, period. He does this because these are the things God warns us against, and because we have been warned not to behave in this manner, and then we do, bam, Satan can open a legal case against us and accuse us before God - this is what I am referring to as daily sin, be it in thought or deed. This is why repentance and calling upon the blood of Jesus to speak in our defense is one of the most important things we are to do when it comes to being truly set free and being able to shut the mouth of the accuser. True repentance is a complete change of heart, not just an admission of guilt and then continue accusing and slandering our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as non-believers. If we are tempted to behave in ways these verses suggest, then Satan is at work and leading us into temptation. As stated above, we can see clearly the enemy's strategy to get us to transgress and fall prey to sin. The verses in the picture above also state clearly how things will be in the end times season - all sinful behaviour which the enemy can use to accuse. The Lord's prayer, Matthew 6:13 says "and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." Jesus gave us the Lord's prayer as the standard prayer to pray. Why would Jesus tell us to pray this if the evil one didn't attempt to tempt or come against us daily?
6. Ruler Of Demons
This evil personage is called the ruler of the demons. Satan is the head of evil and at the heart of all evil. Extremely sly and devious. Ephesians 6:12 tells us "For we wrestle not with flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." This is telling us that there are evil rulers, powers and principalities that are wicked and that come against us, the church and the world in general. These demonic forces have ranks of authority and work through governments, groups, institutions, organizations and individuals. There are a number of principalities, however the Jezebel spirit/principality, along with Antichrist, Leviathan, Death and Hell are the main powers under Satan that do his dirty work for him. The Jezebel principality destroys churches, marriages and open's people up to the spirit of homosexuality and sexual immorality, amongst many other things. I suggest you do some research on her to get a better idea of her demonic influence.
"But the Pharisees said, "By the ruler of the demons He drives out demons" (Matthew 9:34).
Here we can see clearly that scripture has written account of the fact that man has been very much aware of the presence and works of demons. In the New Testament one of Jesus Christ's main functions was driving out demons. In the verse above, Jesus Christ was being accused of being the ruler of demons because He was driving demons out of people. This was a very serious accusation and Jesus warned them that they were on dangerous ground and that accusing God's Holy Spirit of doing anything demonic was in fact an unforgivable sin. This we know as blaspheming the the Holy Spirit. Satan knows this to be true and will try and bait people today to do the same thing resulting in permanent eternal separation from God.
"And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come." Matthew 12:31-32 (NIV)
Based on these verses we can see why Satan and his demons go to every length possible in their (limited) power to get us to blaspheme the Holy Spirit. One of the ways to do this is to fill us with fear regarding demons, and then when we see the Holy Spirit working to deliver people from demonic forces, because of fear, label the deliverance a demonic act. Or, by placing so much fear in people regarding Satan and demons that we fear Satan more than God and deny the Holy Spirit by thinking that we need magical talismans, elaborate rituals, sacrifices, enchantments and spells for protection. I have personally witnessed a family under demonic attack and when the Lord answered their prayers and our paths crossed, I presented the good news about Jesus Christ and how HE CAN AND WILL deliver and protect them. However, due to the enemy blinding their minds and the husband wanting tangible proof that Jesus is real, the opportunity for salvation and deliverance was rejected and what I was telling him about Jesus Christ he chose to deny. This man had tried many ungodly ways of getting help for his wife which had been "sold" to him as Godly protection. Because of their lack of long-term success, when the real deal, Jesus Christ, was presented AS AN ANSWER TO HIS PRAYERS, the Lord was denied because there was no physical proof that faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to go. Satan got his way keeping this family in bondage. The husband is a practicing channel/clairvoyant. Demonic doorways are open and Satan has licence to possess his wife, and even more so now that he denied Jesus Christ. We continue to pray for this family that their minds and hearts will be pierced by the grace of God and be saved.
NO demonic force is more powerful than God and the blood of Jesus Christ IS our ONLY TRUE defense. When we are in a solid relationship with Jesus Christ these forces cannot devour us because Jesus Christ has already defeated them by what He did on the cross for us. Without a relationship with Jesus Christ and not understanding what He did on the cross for us leads people into fearing demons more that our Creator. I absolutely agree that not everything that goes wrong in our lives is Satan or demons. However, if we don't know the love, mercy, grace and laws of the Lord, we can get baited by the enemy and make mistakes that can cost us big time. Nothing but the blood of Jesus Christ can save and deliver us from evil. Demons flee in the presence of Jesus. Just take a look at the story of the gang of demons called Legion.
They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes. When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!” For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!” Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” “My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.” And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area. A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned. Mark 5:1-11 (NIV) Read all the way to verse 20 for the full story.
Jesus was sent as our Saviour and Deliverer. He delivers us from demonic forces. No amount of white light bubbles, violet flames, chanting, mantras, crystals or praying to false gods and fallen angels will save us! Even demons recognize who Jesus Christ is, so I trust that you can see why Satan does not want people to know Jesus Christ or the power in His blood and what He did on the cross for us. With this knowledge and FAITH in Jesus Christ we can drive out demons and we can stand upon the truth that Satan and his army of demonic forces are ALREADY defeated. Satan is a big bully and a liar, using intimidation and lies to keep people oppressed, possessed and in fear. Satan is a worm and the day will come when people will look upon him and will be flabbergasted that he could create so much fear and suffering. "Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate: “Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, the man who made the world a wilderness, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?” Isaiah 14:16-17 (NIV) Don't be ignorant about this person Satan. He's a created being and is doomed to eternal damnation. He will NEVER be forgiven for what he did and has done, as well as what he will do when the Antichrist comes into power on earth in the not too distant future. Ignorance is NOT bliss. Another satanic lie!
Satan is known as Beelzebul, which means "lord of the flies," or "lord of dung." But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, "It is only by Beelzebul, the ruler of the demons, that this fellow casts out the demons" (Matthew 12:24).
8. The Evil One
Satan is also called the "evil one," as is stated in the Lord's prayer given to us by Jesus Christ. "and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." Matthew 6:13 "When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in the heart; this is what was sown on the path (Matthew 13:19).
He is the enemy of humanity. "and the enemy who sowed them is the Devil, and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels (Matthew 13:39).
10. Liar/Father of Lies
Jesus made it clear that Satan is always a liar. He is the originator of lies. Liar, therefore, is an appropriate title.
"You are of your father the Devil . . . there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own nature: for he is a liar, and the father thereof (John 8:44)."
This is confirmation that Satan will lie to us every time in order to convince us that God doesn't love us or that we are so bad we will not be saved. Other than blaspheming the Holy Spirit as we've already covered, when we come to Jesus Christ, repent, change our ways and renounce all evil and demonic behaviour we are saved and He remembers our sin no more. We are made new in Him.
"For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more." Hebrews 8:12 (NIV)
Satan also loves to whisper lies in our ears about other people leading to slander, judgement, blame and bearing false testimony against those who are faithful to the Lord. Satan wants to cause division in the body of Christ, not unity, nor union with God. Be careful what you believe about others, investigate before you accuse or you could find yourself with egg on your face. Many people calling themselves Christians fall into this trap. It is hugely unfortunate to see and experience how the enemy uses lies and slander to create scenarios that lead to pain and suffering, which inevitably results in believers and non-believers thinking that because of this abominable human behaviour, Jesus Christ is the same. Remember, Satan is a liar and will create all kinds of lies and destructive scenarios to lead people AWAY from God. Don't base your judgement of Jesus Christ on the behaviour of humans who are easily influenced by the liar Satan. Don't renounce and reject a relationship with Jesus Christ based on what a church, pastor or "Christian" has done or said to you. That's Satan, NOT Jesus Christ harming or betraying you.
You are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning (John 8:44).
This fallen angel is also a murderer. He seeks to kill, steal and destroy. God wants us to live a long life, be fruitful and increase in number. He wants us to experience joy and success. Although we are told in scripture that living in this world is hard and we will encounter many hardships, we are also told that if we have faith in Jesus Christ He will give us peace and get us through whatever comes against us. This murderer wants to kill our dreams and the destiny God created us to fulfill. He wants to kill God's people and enforce misery and fear, which he gets right if we don't have a relationship with the Lord. Satan is leading hundreds of thousands of people to hell by promoting the lie which has resulted in governments across the world making abortion legal, as an example. This is just one way he is spreading his agenda. Abortion has nothing to do with women's rights and having a say over our bodies! It is murder, period!
Contraception is also a murderous act, because God told us to "be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.." Genesis 1:28 (NIV). People will argue and say that it's ignorant and foolish to have children if you can't afford to feed and educate them. Quite the contrary, it's ignorant and foolish to not have a relationship with Jesus Christ and fail to stand on His promise to provide and protect! If we are close to Him and TRUST and BELIEVE in Him, He ALWAYS provides. This I have witnessed first hand in my own life and through God's mercy and grace, been given revelation that this is absolute truth according to His word. Contraception is playing God. It's affirming that we as humans cannot provide in our own power. BUT God does! Margaret Sanger is the murderous eugenicist who founded contraception. Do your own research on her. She hated black people and abhorred large families. The murderer, Satan, is all over this and I firmly believe is the one who filled her mind with his ideas. They were certainly not inspired by God. Think again about what your beliefs about abortion and contraception are and what they are rooted in. God PROMISES to provide for us!
12. Ruler/God Of This World/God Of This Age
Satan is the ruler of this world in the sense that the world is still characterized by sin. He is the god of this present age and is responsible for keeping billions of people blind and spiritually dead. Jesus said, "I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over Me." John 14:30. (NIV) Jesus Christ is STATING here that Satan has NO power over Him. This is not a flitting remark. It is truth! 2 Corinthians 4:4 says, "Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God." This too confirms that if we have our mind set on what the world wants, does to us, expects and provides we are lost and don't understand God's word. This is what Satan wants! He wants us so fixated on achievement, competition, self-centred success, looks, ideals, the world and its/our issues that we lose sight of what God has said about him and the trappings of the world. Therefore, I also believe through personal experience that you can't argue the word of God if you don't truly know it/Him. If you've never read the bible and basing your beliefs and attitudes on hearsay about who and what God is, you're being deceived by the god/ruler of this world and at a massive disadvantage.
If you have come from a Christian upbringing and have renounced Christianity, then I also believe that the enemy has deceived you and broken your heart leading you to believe that because of what the world has done to you, and because of legalistic religion twisting the Word of God, you have been baited into apostasy. I fell into the new age satanic religion because of such legalistic religion. I was deceived, blinded by the enemy and oh so wrong about God! Thank God He never gave up on me even when I'd given up on Him. Yet, in my darkest hour He saved me and revealed to me the truth of who He TRULY is, and still continues to this day. Regardless of what anyone says against Him, I will NEVER change my mind about who He is and what He does for us, especially what He has done for me and my family. I have walked without Him and don't ever want to experience that separation and spiritual death ever again! Satan used to rule my world, but now I live in the Word of Jesus Christ and dwell in the house of the Holy Spirit. Being raised from the spiritually dead is worth more than all the money and temporary pleasure in this world!
This title also suggests that he is the major influence over our world. Scripture teaches that the whole world is in his power. "We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in the evil one." 1 John 5:19. Aleister Crowley, a famous Satanist, alongside another well known Satanist, Anton LaVey, continuously promoted fixating on the world, it's pleasures and seeking illumination and self gratification. The lure of instant gratification, philosophy and intellectual rhetoric are used to deceive and bait people constantly. They boasted about their Satanic lifestyles and were at the centre of many secular rock bands/music in the 60's, 70's and 80's. Again, I invite you to do your own research on this. This is still the case in Hollywood and the music industry as a whole, including fashion, however, it's now under a different name, but still the same demonic rulership.
13. Angel Of Light
"And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve." 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 (NIV)
Satan appears as an angel of light as do his demonic minions whom I refer to as the New Age Mafia. This I believe to be the biggest deception leading people to eternal death in the New World Order New Age religion. I can confidently say this because I was deceived by the whole "angel of light" lie for 25 years! The New Age religion is the fastest growing religion right now, promoted by the New World Order agenda. These false doctrines and lies have seeped into churches, and the hearts and homes of Christians, not to mention how many lost souls seeking God have been deceived and fallen into Satan's "angel of light" and one world religion web also known as unity consciousness. Unity consciousness and the unity of false and demonic religions has NOTHING to do with union with God.
The kundalini spirit is another huge deception posing as something "of the light." This is in fact the false holy spirit and an eastern based religious cult worldview rife not only among new agers, Buddhists and Hindu's, but is also very active in churches manifesting in uncontrollable laughter, body contortions, uncontrollable jumping around, writhing on the floor, spasms and body tics, as well as hissing, howling, screeching, making animal noises and spitting. Don't be deceived. This demonic spirit also becomes active through yoga practices, especially kundalini yoga. Meditation involving connecting with "light beings" is another trap and opens people up to infiltration by this false holy spirit. Ascended Masters, (fallen) angels and false archangels, gods, goddesses and star beings are all part of the New Age Mafia promoting humanism and unity consciousness, fake bliss, fake love and fake peace. This IS a trap. Aleister Crowley promoted this too. These beings are the dead Nephilim spirits spoken of in Genesis 6:4 who were destroyed in the flood and now seeking to inhabit bodies. Reiki, DNA upgrades, new age initiations, lightbody upgrades, chakra balancing, aura balancing and reading, crystal healing, NLP, and any other modality taught under the new age umbrella is a demonic process placing ignorant souls in bondage. Stay away from it. Also avoid getting involved in the Disclosure movement promoting the intervention of benevolent star beings and the release of free technology that will "save" us. May I remind you that Satan copycats God and will take what God meant for good and twist it to suit his agenda and mislead people. God, however, takes what the enemy meant for evil and uses it for good, so don't go into fear. Better yet, don't fall for the new age and new world order lies! Jesus Christ is the ONLY one who can, does and will save us.
The idea behind Belial is "vileness." This name, occurring very frequently in the Old Testament, has the sense of "worthlessness" (compare 2 Samuel 23:6 margin); accordingly in such phrases as "sons of Belial" (Judges 20:13; 1 Samuel 10:27, etc.), "men of Belial" (1 Samuel 30:22; 1 Kings 21:13, etc.), which the English Revised Version usually retains, the American Standard Revised Version more correctly renders, "base fellows" (so "daughter of Belial" 1 Samuel 1:16, "wicked woman"). There is here no suggestion of a proper name. Afterward, however, "Belial" became a proper name for Satan, or for Antichrist (thus frequently in the Jewish Apocalyptic writings, e.g. in XII the Priestly Code (P), Book Jubilees, Asc Isa, Sib Or). In this sense Paul used the word in 2 Corinthians 6:15, "What concord hath Christ with Belial?" (Beliar). Bousset thinks that Paul's "man of sin" in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, where some authorities read "man of lawlessness," is a translation of this term. The sense at least is similar. https://www.biblestudytools.com/dictionary/belial/
15. Ruler Of The Authority Of The Air
He is the authority over this present, evil world-system. "In which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient." Ephesians 2:2. Satan is said to rule the airwaves and the first and second heavens. The second heaven is what is referred to as the astral plane, the plane in which many demonic forces reside. As the ruler of the authority of the air many believe he rules through technology - social media, the worldwide web and many dangerous warfare technologies, like 5G and cellphone satellite signals. This could be the reason why so many people are addicted to their phones, idolizing them and themselves - selfies etc. Idolatry, in other words, putting anything ahead of God by making it more important than God in our lives is a sin.
16. Adversary/Roaring Lion
This being stands in opposition to everything holy. The word "Satan" means adversary, and he's also likened to a lion who goes about seeking it's prey. "Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour." 1 Peter 5:8.
17. Apollyon And Abaddon
He is called Apollyon and Abaddon. "They have as king over them the angel of the pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon. Revelation 9:11. I find it interesting that this verse is 9:11. Makes you think about who was in fact behind the 9:11 terrorist attacks. I take this as confirmation that it was a Satanic act of blood/human sacrifice of major proportions.
The idea behind these terms is "destroyer." Satan has been filled with hatred against God from the beginning, and has attempted to destroy every good thing that God has done.
Satan is called the dragon. I recently watched a YouTube video by "Revelations of Jesus Christ" regarding the Corona Virus, and in it is a clip of a guy speaking about how China/Japan etc. worship the dragon and connect this to a big part of the reason the virus started in China. Take a look for yourself. There is a Part 2 too. Be warned some graphics are not advised for sensitive viewers. "And the great dragon was cast down, the old serpent, he that is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world; he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him." Revelation 12:9. The term dragon is associated with those who oppose God.
19. Old Serpent
He is also known as the old serpent. This reminds us of the Garden of Eden when Satan came to Adam and Eve in the form of a serpent. It speaks of his cunning.
20. Deceiver Of The Whole World
This fallen angel deceives the unbelieving world. In Revelation 12:9 we read he is referred to as the deceiver of the whole world. In other parts of scripture we learn that two thirds of the world will be deceived by Satan/The Antichrist. Although I used to think that is what is to come, I realize that two thirds have already been deceived. If the leaders of man-made demonic religions continue to get their way with Pope Francis propagating this agenda, the numbers add up. Deception is what this being is all about - Satan is the master deceiver, and I firmly believe Pope Francis is a false prophet and not to be trusted. He has shown his true colours many a time. I also had a dream where this fact was revealed to me. It was one of three dreams I had three nights in a row about Satan. You do the research regarding the Pope and decide for yourself.
"For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear." 2 Timothy 4:3.
I'm going to end it here as I am sure you now have loads of confirmation or, new revelation regarding who this personage is and how he rules this world. I trust that what I have shared here has been insightful and revealed some things perhaps you were wondering about, and that hopefully it has also closed some doors of temptation that were enticing you to have a taste of his demonic new age religion or at least, break some dangerous new age worldviews that you might have adopted. May our Living God Almighty lead you and continue to fill you with the revelation of His truth, mercy, love and grace. Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. He has already defeated the enemy and he (Satan) knows it. His days are numbered. Remain faithful to the Lord as He is to you. Death is defeated, the King is alive and He is coming soon!
