And America's fast approaching downfall...
(Isaiah 14:12-15 King James) 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!
(13) 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:
(14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
I WILL, I WILL, I WILL, I WILL, I WILL
And sin entered the universe. Where there’s a will….there’s a way, to go straight to hell:
(15) Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
The 5 (number of death) ‘I WILL's’ that Lucifer said in his heart, after he was given a throne and sent to a place far, far away, on a tiny orb somewhere out past the middle of the candy bar galaxy, out in the backwoods of the universe….WAAAAAAY DOWN (not an Elvis song) there on an insignificant rock, or so Satan thought, (The Kingdom of God and of Heaven are located on earth- Luke 11:2 KJ - Satan wanted to leave earth not knowing that the Kingdom was going to be here, not up there etc.) where one particular Cherub did not care to rule. He was sent to a piece of dust (earth) compared to other unimaginable ✨️ stellar places to rule over in the unfathomable universe, the sizes, distances across, and grandeur that made His new governmental abode seem like just the tip of a needle in comparison. But this, however, was where Lucifer, the “anointed cherub that covereth” i.e., Lucifer the Cherub was allowed to cover the very throne of God with his wings….his wings that he also used (Ezekiel 10:16 KJ) to mount up from the earth with etc.,…was the ‘humble’ place that God gave Lucifer to rule over.
…….the place where Lucifer (light bearer) committed iniquity and brought sin and rebellion against God into existence:
(Ezekiel 28:14 KJ) 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.
(15) Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
…….”till iniquity was found in thee.”
Satan's 5 ‘I’ (middle letter of ‘sin’) will's was the beginning of sin in the universe.
Eve and Adam did not commit the first sin. There was a problem in Houston on the earth before Adam and Eve were created:
(Genesis 1:1 KJ) In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
(2) And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
….and the earth was without form and void;
Why was that?
In (Luke 10 KJ) when the Lord Jesus had sent 70 people to go before Him into places that He was going to go, they came back saying that the devils were subject to them through Jesus’ name. The Lord Jesus responded:
(Luke 10:18 KJ) And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
….”fall from heaven.”
What happened to the earth when God cast Satan down to it “as lightning”?
(Genesis 1:2 KJ) And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
…”without form, and void;”
But that is not how God initially made the earth, i.e. “without form, and void;” God actually told us this, obviously anticipating many erroneous books and teachings that would be written and spoken on the matter, that said He did create the earth an empty and void orb. Hear closely how God said He did not and did create the earth:
(Isaiah 45:18 KJ) For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
…”he created it not in vain,”
…”he formed it to be inhabited:”
That word “vain” above is ‘tohuw’ in the Hebrew; it is the very same word for “without form” in (Gen 1:2 KJ). God is saying here that He did NOT create the earth “without form”. Genesis 1:2 also says the earth was “void”. The word “void” there means: empty, undistingushable ruin. Here again, that is not how God said that He created the earth. In (Isaiah 45:18), again:
…he formed it to be inhabited
There are two other references in the Scriptures to “without form” and “void”. Both are prophetical concerning what God will do in the end. The first concerns what God will do in His wrath to the land of Esau, Jacob's brother:
(Isaiah 34:11 KJ) But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.
…”confusion” = “without form” in (Genesis 1:2 KJ)
…”emptiness” "= “void” in (Genesis 1:2 KJ)
The other reference to “without form” and “void” is referencing what God will do to the earth in His wrath at the end in the 7 year tribulation:
(Jeremiah 4:23 KJ) I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.
This time, unlike in (Gen 1:1 KJ) when God first created the earth perfectly, of course, God WILL (that word Satan used 5 times), make the earth without form and void. (Jeremiah 4:23 KJ) is future, (Gen 1:1,2 KJ) is past tense.
Lucifer had inhabited the highest place a creature of God could and was allowed to inhabit, above the throne of God covering over it with his wings. But at some point in eternity past God sent Lucifer on a ‘HUMILITY’ mission, to a place in space called 🌎 ; and earth did not resemble in any way whatsoever the eminent place of privilege that he ‘had’ in holding the ‘high….VERY, VERY, HIGH, position above the throne of God. On the earth and eyes lifted up (…ENTER PRIDE) in the direction of his former high place, Satan (adversary) came up with a plan to become the one ALL answered to:
I will ascend (i.e., “alah” ) 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:
….where all the angelic creation gave account to God of their doings in their governmental positions in the heavens - see: Job (the book).
I will ascend above the heights (i.e , “bamah” ) of the clouds:
……Interestingly, the word for “lightning” in the Old Testament is “Baraq”…., in light of the fact that the Lord Jesus beheld Satan as lightning 🌩 fall from heaven.
I will be like the most high.
PRIDE = your heart being lifted up, which is what Satan's heart became:
(Ezekiel 28:17 KJ) 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.
These 5 I WILL'S are the beginning of something (PRIDE) that America is exalting and worshipping today, loudly and clearly, fists clinched and raised up there at God Almighty, and shouting:
WE ‘WILL’ ENGAGE IN THE ABOMINATIONS OF HOMOSEXUALITY, TRANSGENDERISM, DRAG QUEENS, SEXUALIZING CHILDREN
WE ‘WILL’ KILL UNBORN HUMAN BEINGS
….Where there's a will….. 🔥
America, God has destroyed with fire and sulphur from heaven, people and cities for doing these things.
(Genesis 19:24 KJ) Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
(25) And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
Pride, as Satan DEMONstrated, is the chief sin in forsaking the Lord God; it is the chief sin of apostasy. It is THE place where man, either cannot, or soon will not be able, to be convicted in his heart of his sins against God and then be able to turn away from his rebellion and towards God and His Son Jesus Christ for salvation. Homosexuality and killing babies is that last place of defiance before God's wrath is poured out on those who would be rebels against God. In fact, at some point, God will impose the worst judgment of all on those who insist on committing rebellion against Him. He ‘gives them up’ to those immoral perversions where they will be doomed to eternity in hell for not forsaking (1 Cor 6:9 KJ). We are, obviously, seeing this all over America now:
(Rom 1:24 King James) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
(25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
(26) For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
(27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
(28) And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
…God also gave them up
…God gave them up
…God gave them over
God gave them up and over to what?
(Romans 1:32 KJ) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
The truth of it is this: If you hate God and demonstrate that by committing what God calls abominations, you are filled with PRIDE, that which America celebrates and exalts, and that which will destroy individuals and nations that engage in it. The reality is this: if God is not your God, then PRIDE is your God, as seen in the American Idol tender embrace of sexual perversions and the murder of human beings, unborn or born.
(Proverbs 8:36 KJ) But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
(Proverbs 16:18 KJ) Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
(Luke 16:15 KJ) And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
….”that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.”
In sum: America, return, humbly and on bended knee, to the Lord Jesus Christ. Make the month of June HUMILITY month, not PRIDE month. Why?
(Psalms 9:17 KJ) The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
Sound familiar? Turn on the news…….
(Revelation 22:21 KJ) The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
