LUCIFER: “The Awaiting Red Dragon and the First Christmas”–Ignorant Fisherman

The Awaiting Red Dragon and the First Christmas.

Long before the first nativity (First Christmas) ever took place it was well known by the god of this world (Gen. 3:14-15, Eph. 2:2-3, Rev. 12:4). Lucifer, - at his fall -ABSOLUTELY COMPREHENDED that he was ETERNALLY doomed. His violent rebellion against Almighty God’s ETERNAL sovereignty and RIGHTEOUSNESS was WELL planned and thought out(Isa. 14:12-15).

I truly believe that when Lucifer was created at the beginning of Almighty God’s creation and was given the chief position in the worship of the TRIUNE GOD that he truly loved and adored his Creator (Ezek. 28:12-15).

The heavenly worship which he conducted in that timeless past was one of majestic praise and glory. He inspired the countless angelic hosts and brought great praise and glory to Almighty God.

But as time went on Lucifer started to subjectively conceive a jealous and envious spirit against the very One whom was his sole object of love and devotion. He began looking at his created beauty and pride and rebellion began to consume him (Ezek. 28:12-15).

But as time went on Lucifer started to subjectively conceive a jealous and envious spirit against the very One whom was his sole object of love and devotion.

As time went on he became more and more consumed with power and finally acted on his godless delusional ambitions and fully crossed over the line of the ETERNAL established RIGHTEOUSNESS and SOVEREIGNTY of Almighty God(Isa, 14:12-15, Ezek. 28:15) into the full manifestation of godless evil and rebellion.

His new totalitarian mindset (the lust for total control) transgressed and undermined all that is Almighty God and His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS SOVEREIGNTY.

Lucifer then proceeded to seduced and convinced 1/3 of the angelic host to partake in his godless transgression and rebellion against all that is ETERNALLY ABSOLUTE and was cast out of the presence of Almighty God (Rev. 12:4).

He was exiled out of Almighty God’s heavenly kingdom of light and was cast out into the outer darkness of Almighty God's creation.

All the wonder of his CREATED beauty was as a beautifully cut diamond surrounded by a multitude of precious jewels (Ezek. 28:12-15). When he rebelled and abandoned the LIGHT of RIGHTEOUSNESS he became valueless and with out purpose. For WITHOUT the brilliance of HIS Creator’s DIVINE light of RIGHTEOUSNESS the wondrous jewels that he was became worthless and of no value.

What value are the most precious jewels of the world when they are left in the darkness?

As these exiled angelic beings began to exist in the darkness of their minds - which was outside Almighty God’s heavenly kingdom’s realm of light and reality - they became more subjectively godless, evil, lawless and hateful. As their rage and insanity grew to EXPONENTIAL levels they fully abandoned ALL reality and became more aggressive in their war against Almighty God. This demonic aggression would be fully exercised and expressed in the heart of Almighty God’s new physical and tangible creation, the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3).

It was not to long after God’s new creation (Gen. 1) was completed that Lucifer found his opportunity and sought to deceive and destroy Almighty God’s divine representative and ruler over His physical creation, Man (Gen. 2).

It was by the same subtle craftiness and deception which Lucifer applied to the angelic multitudes in the heavenly realm prior to this new creation that he would use on Man (John 8:44). Lucifer went forth in his vindictive vengeance and by his craftiness and subtle questioning deceived and led the woman to commit spiritual suicide (Gen. 3:1-6, 1 Tim. 2:14).

Lucifer knew that by the woman’s weaknesses he could bait and bring down Adam, thus corrupting and destroying Almighty God’s new creation and His sovereign representative (i.e., Man) and rule.

When Adam followed his wife’s transgression and openly disobeyed Almighty God’s commands, he also died spiritually and lost his dominion to Satan who became the ruler of this fallen world (Gen. 3, Rom. 5:12, 17, Luke 4:5-6, Eph. 2:2-3).

In the darkened minds of these fallen beings they truly believed that they had the power to still over through the ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY of Almighty God and establish Lucifer’s throne above the pinnacle of ETERNITY.

Lucifer had successfully destroyed Almighty God’s sovereign representative and rendered him useless for man’s ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS calling and purpose (Gen. 3:1-7, Rom. 5:12, 17). Lucifer and the fallen angelic host rejoiced greatly at the success of this great demonic coos!

Their revenge was complete… so they thought and their vindictive rage finally appeased. In the darkened minds of these fallen beings they truly believed that they had the power to still over through the ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY of Almighty God and establish Lucifer’s throne above the pinnacle of ETERNITY (Isa. 14:12-15).

Oh how deceived are those who dwell in darkness and feed on delusion and vanity (Prov. 8:36, Rom. 1:18-32, John 3:19-21)! As time would go on they would personally experience they were ETERNALLY no match for the OMNISCIENCE of Almighty God (Job 5:9, Isa. 40:28, 55:9, Rom. 11:33).


It was at this point in time – at Adam’s fall - that Almighty God revealed His plan of REDEMPTION which was planned from the ENDLESS ETERNAL EONS of ETERNITY PAST
(Gen. 3:14-15, 1 Peter 1:19-20, Rev. 13:9).

As Almighty God pronounced the judgment and revealed the consequences that would now follow Adam and Eve and their posterity through out their existence in time, He then revealed His plan for the ETERNAL salvation for man and the final means of the demise of Lucifer and his angelic demonic hosts (Gen. 3:15).

It would be through the Man, - the very one who Lucifer had deceived and murdered spiritually - that the Savior would come (Rom. 5:12-21, 1 Cor. 15:21)! This Offspring of Eve would redeem mankind from their fallen nature, godless transgressions and ETERNAL demise and then would finally assign Lucifer and his angels to the Lake of Fire FOREVER (Matt. 25:41, Rev. 19:11-21, 20:1-3, 10).

What looked like to Lucifer as a victorious coop over Almighty God the ETERNAL KING of GLORY when he murdered Adam and Eve had now become the very means and vessel of Lucifer’s ETERNAL demise and ruin (Rom. 5:6-21, 1 Cor. 15:21, Rev 1:18, 5). It would be by this far lesser creature (Man) than he, that Lucifer would find his final ETERNAL doom (John 1:1-3,14, Rom. 1:3-4, Phil. 2:6-11, Heb. 2:14-18, Rev. 5:5, 20:10).

What looked like to Lucifer as a victorious coop over Almighty God the ETERNAL KING of GLORY when he murdered Adam and Eve had now become the very means and vessel of Lucifer’s ETERNAL demise and ruin.

Since the Garden of Eden it has always been Satan and his demonic host’s sole desire and passion to destroy the line of the Messiah in whatever capacity and means possible (Rev. 12:4). Though Satan FULLY rejects the ETERNAL WORD of Almighty God, he believes what it states and uses Almighty God’s prophetic promises to seek to derail and destroy Almighty God’s prophetic promises from coming to be.

One cannot study and read the Word of God and its righteous testimonies and not see Satan’s hand at work in his perpetual effort to derail Almighty God’s plan and purposes for humanity at every chance (John 8:44, Eph. 6:12, Rev. 12:9).

He MUST... destroy the coming (1st and 2nd) of the Messiah to preserve himself and his host from ETERNAL damnation. He truly believes that it is in his power to over throw Almighty God and His ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY and become lord  and despot of His creation (physical and spiritual).

As a raging madman, Lucifer was hell bent on destroying Almighty God’s Promised One from being born. It has been since the Garden of Eden that he has been on this perpetual assassination mission and as we shall see, he was present and ready to destroy the babe of Bethlehem 2000 years ago(Rev. 12:4).


“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman (Israel) clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold agreat red dragon (Satan), having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

And his tail drew the third part of the stars (angels)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. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God and to his throne” (Rev. 12:1-5).

You see, Lucifer “the Dragon” was there on that first Christmas night when the Savior of the world was born (Rev. 12:4).

This violent raging Dragon knew exactly who this babe was and he could not afford to let this One who was the promised Savior from the Garden of Eden to exist (Gen. 3). He (the Messiah) had to be annihilated and destroyed.

Yet Almighty God and His ETERNAL SOVEREIGNTY kept this dragon a bay.

There is the account given in Scripture in which we see Satan's hand behind Herod’s violent decree two years later in which he sought to destroy every child in the city of David up to two years old (Matt. 2:12-21).

Lucifer throughout Jesus Messiah’s life sought countless attempts on Jesus’ life – but all to no avail - for it was not His time. Jesus must go to the Cross and fulfill His divine mission of REDEMPTION and nothing - not even the great red Dragon - could stop that from coming to be (Matt. 26:39, John 19:30, Heb. 10:4-14, Rev. 5:5-9).

God’s description of Lucifer as a violent raging dragon is for us to understand just who this horrific monster is. He is our fiercest enemy (2 Cor. 4:4, Heb. 2:14-15, 1 Peter 5:8, Rev. 12:11).

It is his sole desire - as in the Garden of Eden - to keep Almighty God’s creation and mankind doomed and under his tyrannical grasp for his own evil hyper narcissistic means (Heb. 2:14-15). You see, it is Lucifer's sole desire to receive the worship of Almighty God's creation - in heaven above and earth below - and to establish his kingdom of darkness FOREVER (Gen. 11, Isa. 14:12-15, Luke 4:5-6, Eph. 2:2-3,  Rev. 13).

Lucifer through out Jesus Messiah’s life sought countless attempts on Jesus’ life – all to no avail - for Jesus must go to the Cross and fulfill His divine mission of REDEMPTION.

2000 years ago in Bethlehem of Judea a godless world was about its own way, OBLIVIOUS to Almighty God’s wondrous love and OBLIVIOUS to the demonic murderer’s grand intentions to destroy the only hope for mankind's salvation (Isa. 53:6, John 1:10, 3:17-17).

As we enter into another Christmas season, how many people today are also oblivious to the continued raging spiritual war that is in full engagement all around us?

This great war is ever raging for the hearts, souls and minds of mankind and will climax at the Battle of Armageddon (Eph. 2:2-10, 6:12, Rev. 16:13-16).

The Dragon still is EVER seeking to devour, deceive and destroy while Almighty God the ETERNAL Creator is EVER seeking to REDEEM and SAVE (John 3:16-17)! No wonder the multitudes of angelic hosts rejoiced that night 2000 years ago when the Savior of mankind was born (Matt. 1:21, Luke 2:8-14, Rom. 5:17).

Almighty God gloriously fulfilled His promise to mankind in light of Satan’s continual opposition. My friend even now God has protected and kept us from the FULL WRATH of this raging dragon and has given ALL the opportunity to be delivered from this tyrannical monster, our fallen nature and the ETERNAL JUDGMENT of Almighty God on our transgressions against His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES (John 1:12, Acts 16:29-31, Eph. 2:2-10).

The Dragon still is seeking to devour, deceive and destroy while Almighty God the ETERNAL Creator is EVER seeking to redeem and save!

This Christmas season may you be sure that you truly know the Savior that Almighty God has provided for you. Lucifer the raging dragon is still seeking to destroy and devour as he did 2000 years ago on that first Christmas night but Almighty God is also seeking to deliver ALL who come to His promised Savior and Messiah. Oh beloved!

That is truly what Christmas is all about!


The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The Daily Question: "What should we learn from the life of Job?"–Got Questions

THE DAILY QUESTION

"What should we learn from the life of Job?"

Question: "What should we learn from the life of Job?"


Answer:
The life of Job is proof that man usually has no idea what God is doing behind the scenes in the life of each believer. All humans ask the question, "Why do bad things happen to good people?"

It is the age-old question, and one that is sometimes difficult to answer in human terms, but believers have an advantage because we know that God is always in control, and, no matter what happens, there are no coincidences—nothing happens by chance.

Job was such a man; he knew that God was on the throne and in total control, though he had no way of knowing why so many terrible tragedies were occurring in his life.


Job never lost his faith in God, even under the most heartbreaking circumstances that tested him to his core. It’s hard to imagine losing everything we own in one day—property, possessions, and even children. Most men would sink into depression and even become suicidal after such a nightmare; however, Job never wavered in his understanding that God was still in control.

Job’s three friends, on the other hand, instead of comforting him, gave him bad advice and even accused him of committing sins so grievous that God was punishing him by making his life miserable.

Job knew God well enough to know that He did not work that way; in fact, he had such an intimate, personal relationship with Him that he was able to make the statement, "Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; I will surely defend my ways to his face” (Job 13:15).


There is another lesson in the book of Job, and that concerns the bond between husband and wife. Satan declared war on Job, trying to prove that he was only faithful to God because God had blessed him. God allowed Satan to test Job’s faith, but He stopped him at the point of taking Job’s life (Job 1:12).

God declares that a husband and wife are “one flesh” (Genesis 2:24); therefore, because of this God-ordained bond, Satan was forbidden to take the life of Job’s wife, as well as that of Job.

She obviously did not have faith like that of Job, because her response to the calamity was to tell Job to “curse God and die!" (Job 2:9). Her faith did not spare her, but her marriage bond with Job did. She was considered the same flesh as her husband, so Satan could not take her life, either.


Job’s plight, from the death of his children and loss of his property to the physical torment he endured, plus the unending harangue of his so-called friends, still never caused his faith to waver. He knew who his Messiah was, he knew that He was a living Savior, and he knew that someday He would physically stand on Planet Earth (Job 19:25).

The spiritual depth of Job shows throughout his writings. He understood that man’s days are ordained (numbered), and they cannot be changed (Job 14:5).

Job described the experience of salvation as one in which men, destined to eternity in “the pit,” are ransomed and redeemed by a gracious God who shines His light on them (Job 33:23-30).


There are also many scientific and historical facts in the book of Job. He wrote that the earth is round long before it was proven to be so, referring to the “circuit of heaven” (Job 22:14). He spoke of dinosaurs, living not before man was created as secularists teach today, but living side-by-side with man, as stated inJob 40:15: "Now behold behemoth, which I made along with you; he eats grass like an ox” (KJV).


The book of Job gives us a glimpse behind the veil that separates earthly life from the heavenly. In the beginning of the book, we see that Satan and his fallen angels are still allowed free access to heaven, going in and out to the prescribed meetings that take place there. What is obvious from these accounts is that Satan is busy working his evil on Planet Earth, as recorded inJob 1:6-7.

Also, this account shows how Satan is “the accuser of the brethren,” which corresponds toRevelation 12:10, and it shows his arrogance and pride, as written inIsaiah 14:13-14.

It is amazing to see how Satan challenges God; he has no scruples about confronting the Most High God because he has no fear of Him. The account in Job clearly shows Satan as he truly is—haughty, pride-filled, and evil to the core.


Perhaps the greatest lesson we learn from the book of Job is that God does not have to answer to anyone for what He does or does not do. What we learn from Job’s experience is that we may never know the specific reason for suffering, but we must trust in our sovereign, holy, righteous God whose ways are perfect (Psalm 18:30). If God’s ways are “perfect,” then we can trust that whatever He does—and whatever He allows—is also perfect.

This may not seem possible to us, but our minds are not God’s mind. It is true that we can’t expect to understand His mind perfectly, as He reminds us “’For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ says the LORD. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts’” (Isaiah 55:8-9).

Nevertheless, our responsibility to God is to obey Him, to trust Him, and to submit to His will, whether we understand it or not. When we do, we will see more clearly the magnificence of our God and we will say, with Job, “My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you” (Job 42:5).

Tension at Temple Mount is escalating week by week

US Secretary of State John Kerry was meeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the third time in 24 hours on Friday for talks understood to be focused on security.

Kerry, who is seeking ways to drive forward stagnant peace talks, met twice with Netanyahu on Thursday for more than six hours of talks about potential security issues in any peace agreement. He also held a three-hour meeting on Thursday in Ramallah with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.

Early on Friday, Kerry met Israeli Finance Minister Yair Lapid at a Jerusalem hotel, after which he entered another round of talks with Netanyahu, officials said. The US diplomat was then expected to head straight to Ben Gurion airport near Tel Aviv where he would hold a news conference before flying home.

 

Lapid to Kerry:
Israelis, Palestinians want peace agreement

Finance Minister Yair Lapid met with US Secretary of State John Kerry Friday, telling him how he appreciated his efforts in the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations. "Despite the disagreements and potholes on the way, a peace agreement is what both sides want."

Lapid also thanked Kerry for the strong alliance Israel has with the Americans, and said that the final nuclear agreement with Iran must prevent Iran from obtaining military nuclear capabilities.

 

Yair Lapid received a copy of 'Eye to Eye' in Washington, DC on October 11.

 

Kerry:
Israel's security at the top of US agenda in Iran nuclear talks

The bond between the US and Israel is "unbreakable," and while there may be tactical differences between the two countries occasionally, the long term strategy for Israel's security and peace in the region is the same, US Secretary of State John Kerry said in Jerusalem Thursday.

Kerry's comments, following a meeting with Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu, came after a month of high-profile, public disagreement between Washington and Jerusalem both over the policy toward Iran, and the talks with the Palestinians. The two men, who both referred to the other as "my friend," took pains to present a common and amiable front.

 

 

US officials:
Kerry presenting security plan in
meetings with Israelis, Palestinians

Secretary of State John Kerry will present the outlines of a West Bank security plan in meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders this week, stepping up American involvement in hopes of reviving faltering Mideast peace efforts, U.S. officials said Wednesday.

 

The proposal will mark the first time that Kerry has directly intervened in the talks since they began in late July. By all accounts, the negotiations have made no progress, despite an April target date for reaching a deal.
