“The Rest of the Story”

GustaveDoreParadiseLostSatanProfile

There used to be a radio commentator, Paul Harvey, who had a sign off of “…and now you know the rest of the story”.

There have been prior posts on the fact that what is happening around us is evil fruit from the myth of evolution.

When it is fully accepted that the historical account in Genesis is the correct history of the world, and not evolution, then it must also be accepted that satan, who was thrown out of heaven after he attempted a coup for the throne of God, was cast down to the earth and has been wreaking havoc ever since.  If satan couldn’t get to God, he would try to get to God’s man, Adam, which he did.

Revelation 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

 

The heavens  rejoiced to get rid of satan but woe to those who live in the earth.

Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

 

Jesus taught, while he was on earth, that there are those who yield to satan, who carry out the evil suggestions that the devil gives them for the earth.

John 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

 

Jesus defeated satan at the cross and ultimately that will be evident. The reason it is still not evident is that Jesus turned around and gave the keys of the kingdom, which He had won through His victory on the cross, to the Church. It is up to the Church to enforce that defeat until Jesus actually fully comes back in His Second Coming.

While the Lord God has all authority and power, He works through His ways.

Psalm 115:16 The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

 

Jesus came to earth to solve the problem that was created on earth at the Fall in the Garden of Eden.  There is a jurisdiction that exists on the earth that God set up; he gave the earth to the children of men, and so for God to work in this realm he requires the cooperation of mankind, or in the case of Jesus, came to earth Himself to operate on this earthly realm in order to solve an earthly problem.  God sovereignly created the earth, but then turned it over to mankind, at least until the appointed time of the Second Coming.

There is a prophetic word that Jesus will return at the Second Coming; many people of many denominations are aware of that.  But that in itself is a legal event, so to speak, when Jesus will sovereignly again be on the earth.  Until then, if we hope to have the help of God, we have to find out how to relate to Him and do things His way.  God is not going to “pop in” (at least until the appointed time) to solve things on the earth that he gave mankind the responsibility and ability to take dominion over through the keys of the kingdom that Jesus won at the cross and gave to mankind to use in his name, on his behalf, as his ambassadors.

Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

 

God has always worked through people. Being God, he can sovereignly do anything. He has chosen to work through people on this earth through their obedience to His Voice, and through their prayers and through learning His ways and walking in them.   God is not a vending machine.  He requires obedience to His Will and ways.

From election fraud, to the Federal Reserve, to open borders, to drugs, to pedophilia, to transgenderism…all the evils of this present world which are contrary to “traditional values”, which values have traditionally been based on the Bible, satan is inspiring, and also inspiring people still under his control to enact a tyranny where the rule of the world is under satan. Satan lost that attempt for dominion in heaven and has since been trying to create it in the earth. His power is the power of bluff and the fact that no one, or not enough, collectively stand against what he is doing, in the name of Jesus.

The facts, the truth, belong with the Christians and conservatives, but the world overall has been in a state of sleep. There is some awakening due to the massive suffering and a questioning of why it is happening and the cause.

Ultimately, the cause is satanic power which works through people who are willing to yield to the power for power, profit, promotion, fear of man, blackmail, bribery, greed, corruption, lack of morals, lack of ethics, and lust.

Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
