Satan The Ruler Of This World?
Isaiah 30:9 For these people are stubborn rebels who refuse to pay any attention to the LORD's instructions. 10 …They say, "Don't tell us the truth. Tell us nice things. Tell us lies. 11 Forget all this gloom. We have heard more than enough about your 'Holy One of Israel.' We are tired of listening to what He has to say."
The Boston Globe had an article some time ago. It went something like this. If you hear some facts or information that your mind can’t handle you will usually attack the source and entrench yourself even more in your old position!
If you don't believe me see if you can handle this!
I can see this clearly as I discuss things about Jesus, or a coming judgment for each of us. There are also many examples that I can see here in America. The Bible tells us at this time, before the Second Coming of Jesus, God is allowing Satan to be in control of this world or ruler of this world. Jesus made these statements:
-John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.
-John 14:29 "And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe. 30 I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.
-John 16:11…of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
I’ve got some GOOD NEWS Jesus has overcome the world. He bought it back with His blood and He WILL judge Satan when He comes again. Before that is to happen the Bible from cover to cover speaks of a coming judgment of the earth! It tells us there will be a time at the end when Satan’s plan for a global government will happen! Satan has been working toward this goal for thousands of years and God will allow it. A global government or New World Order with Satan’s man in control ruling the nations is in our future.
Let’s get back to the Untied States. You can’t have a global government and a super power! Americans want their freedom.. Others want our military strength but they must destroy the structure of this nation. Look at what’s going on around you. Things are moving fast in our economy and a world going to war. We are being forced into a world government. In the background powerful men around the world are being used by Satan to force the world under one flag. They are bringing this nation to its knees. Government is not the answer in fact it’s the problem. This is a spiritual battle! There is no political solution for spiritual rebellion against God!!
It’s time to come to Jesus and put your hope and faith in Him. There is no quick fix for this world. We must get serious seeking God’s grace through Christ Jesus.
1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world — the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life — is not of the Father but is of the world.. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
