Major Prophets in the Old Testament

The World Should Have Seen This Coming

For well over 1000 years the world has wondered about what is generally referred to as, “the mark of the beast.” What is it? If nothing else the term has evolved over the years. One thing has been consistent over the past 1000 years. The world has turned to science as its interpreter. That, “mark,” had evolved from tattoos, to fashion, jewelry, computers, names deciphered by Roman Numerals, to microchips, and a number of other best guesses keeping up with the advance sciences the world has to offer. Why so many guesses? And why has mankind continued to rely on science as its interpreter and god?

Thousands of years before mankind began applying their best guesses upon that mark, God had Ezekiel record the reason why Satan was banished from Heaven.

Your conduct was perfect from the day you were created until you began to do evil. You were busy buying and selling, and this led you to violence and sin. So I forced you to leave my holy mountain, and the angel who guarded you drove you away from the sparkling gems. (Ezekiel 28:15-16 GNB).

For lack of a better term, all we had to do is follow the money. In plain words Ezekiel tells us, Satan introduced his system of buying and selling in Heaven. Money was never part of God’s system. But God allowed Satan to try his system of buying and selling in Heaven for a time. Until that system showed how corrupt it is. Satan refused to give up his system. He insisted his system of buying and selling allowed superior angels to elevate themselves above others.

How can that system of money work in Heaven where everything is created by God and equally shared? It was God’s wish to provide every need for His created beings. But that was not good enough for Satan who wanted more. Yes, your wisdom has made you very rich, and your riches have made you very proud. (Ezekiel 28:5 NLTse).

Pride controlled Satan’s thoughts and actions. He promised to elevate the angels who supported him. His only goal was to elevate himself. “Son of man, give the prince of Tyre this message from the Sovereign LORD: “In your great pride you claim, ‘I am a god! I sit on a divine throne in the heart of the sea.’ But you are only a man and not a god, though you boast that you are a god. “Son of man, sing this funeral song for the king of Tyre. Give him this message from the Sovereign LORD: “You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and exquisite in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God. Your clothing was adorned with every precious stone– red carnelian, pale-green peridot, white moonstone, blue-green beryl, onyx, green jasper, blue lapis lazuli, turquoise, and emerald– all beautifully crafted for you and set in the finest gold. They were given to you on the day you were created. I ordained and anointed you as the mighty angelic guardian. You had access to the holy mountain of God and walked among the stones of fire. “You were blameless in all you did from the day you were created until the day evil was found in you. (Ezekiel 28:2 NLTse), (Ezekiel 28:12-15 NLTse).

Satan was allowed to walk this earth to spread his ideas so the Universe could see once and for all where those concepts would lead. We’ve seen how Satan’s agents took what was given to them. Like Satan, his agents never had enough. We see it in the Bible. Nebuchadnezzar was given the world. God gave Nebuchadnezzar the world, until he placed all the credit upon himself. As he looked out across the city, he said, ‘Look at this great city of Babylon! By my own mighty power, I have built this beautiful city as my royal residence to display my majestic splendor.’ “While these words were still in his mouth, a voice called down from heaven, ‘O King Nebuchadnezzar, this message is for you! You are no longer ruler of this kingdom. (Daniel 4:30-31 NLTse). Satan introduced that thought.

The same exact thing happened with Hitler, who set his eyes on conquering the world. Stalin, Lenin, and others followed the exact same route. Riches were for the few on top, and everything is never enough.

A few years ago the world had millionaires. Then billionaires. Today we have trillionaires who are not satisfied. It never seems to be enough for them. Today we see billion dollar companies backing of all things, the overthrow of the United States government including the end of capitalism, and a full submission to communist ideas. Do we really believe politicians will end free enterprise and replace it with a marxist society? We only need to look at how some communist countries are run. A few like Po Pot closed down factories and went to an agricultural society. Millions stared to death or were assassinated in the process. Socialists like Hitler took over hundreds of companies while allowing a few choice companies to operate as if nothing had changed. Except for granting multi-million dollar military contracts. All paid for by taxpayers. We can see that is the concept discussed in backroom meetings today.

Pride has been embraced in many forms throughout the world. Pride in home ownership, pride in fashion, lawns, wealth, and materials. But pride has taken a dangerous turn in many forms. One of which is boasted as gay pride. Few people stand against one’s sexual orientation. They live with the motto of, “you live your life the way you want, allow me live my life the way I want.” As with the devil and his followers, equality is never enough for radicals in the gay community. After winning gay rights in many parts of this world, radicals felt a deep need to push their agenda. They want the right to teach their life styles on others. They claim they cannot feel secure until their lifestyles are taught in schools. They claim they cannot feel whole unless everyone practices their life styles. Like dictators of the past, they possess a deep seeded need to force their beliefs upon the world.

It may seem like a rather strange union between communists and the gay community. Since 1917 communism in some forms has embraced homosexuality as allies.

This shouldn’t surprise people. Although Hitler and Stalin outlawed homosexual activities, others rallied and sometimes participated in the acts. The fear Stalin had was that homosexuals were often pedophiles. Which is still true today. But most modern dictators choose to overlook that analysis and embrace the homosexual life style as a way of advancing their numbers. Which we see today.

Protests in Poland leading up to the 2020 presidential election included demands to legalize pedophilia, free those in prison, and allow minors to undergo sex change operations. Much of this is now bubbling to the surface here in the US. The majority of radical protesters arrested reveal long arrest records for pedophilia. Radical groups are joined by radical members of the gay community. District attorneys on the far left have released pedophiles no matter what the circumstance of their charges were.

This combination of lust for money, power, and freedom to perform every sexual practice without restraint is the foundation of the far left movement today. Why is this so profound today? The Bible contains one explanation covering a few short verses.

When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:19-21 NLTse).

There has been way too much speculation on the mark of the beast to take an objective open view showing how the Bible has always explained what the mark of the beast is and exactly when it can be seen. But here we will follow through a few key verses to show how turning a single page reveals the mark of the beast.

Then another angel, who had power to destroy with fire, came from the altar. He shouted to the angel with the sharp sickle, “Swing your sickle now to gather the clusters of grapes from the vines of the earth, for they are ripe for judgment.” So the angel swung his sickle over the earth and loaded the grapes into the great winepress of God’s wrath. The grapes were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress in a stream about 180 miles long and as high as a horse’s bridle. (Revelation 14:18-20 NLTse).

In essence, this is a simple process of following the story to the end of the chapter where the end of the judgment process is clearly described. Almost every religion believes in a judgment process. There are over a dozen major Christian beliefs on the judgment process. But here is what the Bible says about that judgment process and what happens immediately after the judgment process draws to a close. Turn the page and the Bible tells us exactly what will happen next.

Then I saw in heaven another marvelous event of great significance. Seven angels were holding the seven last plagues, which would bring God’s wrath to completion. (Revelation 15:1 NLTse).

Immediately after the judgment process in Heaven ends, another event follows. That event is the seven last plagues. The first plague explains what the mark of the beast actually is.

Then I heard a mighty voice from the Temple say to the seven angels, “Go your ways and pour out on the earth the seven bowls containing God’s wrath.” So the first angel left the Temple and poured out his bowl on the earth, and horrible, malignant sores broke out on everyone who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his statue. (Revelation 16:1-2 NLTse).

For the first time the entire world can see who is saved and who is lost. Before the world ends, every person alive on the earth at that time will know if they are saved or lost. People will see the difference and know the difference. There will be no doubt in anyone’s mind.

We need to share this information today because it is the the only warning this world will ever receive about the judgment of the living in. Before Satan and his angels could be tossed out of Heaven, Satan’s followers had to be judged. God’s angels had to know who stayed in Heaven and who had to go. Somehow Satan’s followers were identified. Satan’s followers were marked with the original mark of the beast.

When we follow political news around the world today, we see something rather unexpected and bizarre. We see radial and moderate communists coming out of the closet. We see them protesting in the streets, making speeches, revealing their goals and demands, we see them openly censoring people, the media, and every opinion that is not inline with their agenda. We are seeing things happening we never expected to see. We see an ex-vice president running for president who barely won the nomination from an open communist. We see an ex-vice president publicly embrace socialist concepts and ideals. We see his running mate who forged a political carried from the bodies of aborted babies. And is proud of the deaths she is responsible for. We see a wannabe vice president who associates with and protects satanists, and claims she is a woman of faith. We see people who started multi-billion dollar businesses from their parents garage with the belief, billions of dollars is never enough. We see groups of people easily controlled, easily manipulated into believing, everything bad that happened in their lives was someone’s fault, but they bear no responsibility for their own actions. We see the devil’s influence over lives coming to the surface.

We can look back over history in the Bible and beyond what the Bible has recorded. We can pick any date in time and see the same implications. People were always driven by pride and greed. Some always blamed short comings on others. But today seems different. Today seems more open. As if some unseen force has united radical factions who never seemed to get along suddenly join forces as if this was planned in basements or secret meetings throughout the world. No one can deny the actions we see today are coordinated, planned, and executed with near military precision. When we take a step back to look at the full picture we can see people, leaders, and organizations behind the mess this world is in today and the battles that lie ahead. But for years, we all knew there was little chance all those radical factions would ever unite. They never trusted one another. They never agreed on major topics. Their overall plan was to reduce many of those factions to rubble. But something united those factions. Something brought radical factions together for a time. No one could have pulled that off without being clearly identified. No one except the devil.

When we look at what we see today, no one can deny the fact, it is getting easier to tell the difference between those who will be saved and those who will be lost for eternity. There still remains a host of gray areas. No one should ever judge another. That is a Christian attitude still shared by many. But that basic attitude is being eroded. Chipped away with every news story, and every new, unexpected event we see unfold in 2020.

The left intentionally targets actions to provoke conservatives into violent reactions. As we watch those events unfold, we can’t help but be surprised at how restrained most people are. It enrages some to see their statues toppled and monuments desecrated. People see their churches burned, their saints disgraced, their priests and pastors murdered for what they teach, and endure calls to abolish their history. The left pushes from every imaginable direction. The left threatens civil war, social disobedience, blames conservatives for every imaginable problem, and pushes at Christians like poking a tiger in a cage. But there is no response, no retaliation. Step back and witness God’s power over His people telling them to wait. God is reminding people, “vengeance is the LORD’s.” World wide, people grasp onto that promise and believe it.

When we take an objective look at both sides we see nothing short of a supernatural, unseen intervention. We see people being restrained from acts of vengeance on a divine level. We also acts beyond normal protests, actions go beyond that of attracting attention to a situation. We see devilish actions perpetrated in attempts to provoke physical responses. But retaliation has been restrained. We see God’s hand on his people and the devil moving his pawns around, willing to sacrifice as many as necessary to gain what? What are the devil’s plans at this point? We know the outcome. At the end of those last seven plagues the devil gathers his army under one banner.

“Look, I will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me, who keep their clothing ready so they will not have to walk around naked and ashamed.” And the demonic spirits gathered all the rulers and their armies to a place with the Hebrew name Armageddon. Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air. And a mighty shout came from the throne in the Temple, saying, “It is finished!” (Revelation 16:15-17 NLTse).

Today we can see the armies gathering. When we look at communist countries, not one trusts the other. Every single one of them is either prepared to defend themselves against other communist threats, or preparing to conquer other countries. There is no trust among communist. Not when world conquest flows through their veins. But for some reason we see normally warring, untrusting factions gathering in the streets to over throw the US government and other democratic governments throughout the world. Exactly what united those forces at this time? It could be none other than the devil himself. Known for working in the shadows for over 6000 years.

Major Prophets in the Old Testament

To Walk in Enoch’s Footsteps

After being under house arrest for over a month, what do you have to show for it? What have you learned from this experience? Have you been listening to what God has been trying to teach you?

We wake up to what? Turn on the TV and the airwaves are jammed with celebrities and other people telling you how they entertain themselves. Celebrities who have made millions of dollars from entertaining this world. They can teach you how to be as self centered as themselves. But where does that get you when you don’t have the money they have? The news tells you how many people have been infected and how many people died. Death sums up this world. In the world today there is no escaping death, sickness, misery, and isolation. Is that what money brings, or does money free you from death, sickness, and isolation? Today we all have one thing in common, isolation. Why not learn to use that isolation to your advantage?

My study of the Bible has taught me how to escape this world for a moment, a few minutes, and maybe an hour. To place myself in a special place where birds are singing. A place where I can appreciate the peace, quite, and solitude. A place where I can be with God and hear His voice much like Enoch did. What has your study of the scripture taught you?

No one can really describe Heaven or God’s throne. Human words will never be adequate. You first have to realize why God always uses symbols in dreams and visions. That is the key that opens the door to understanding. Then you can begin to learn to communicate in the language of Heaven.

For generations humans have been trying to explain God’s symbols. That has been a total failure. Symbols are explained in the Bible. Symbols are explained in the stories they are found. Many times in the same chapter. Keep in mind, stories in the Bible often go on for a number of chapters. Some books in the Bible are one long story. You first have to recognize the beginning and end of a story before you can hope to learn how to find the interpretation to symbols used in that story. Learning to read the Bible is nothing more than paying attention to the literary arrangement of the books in the Bible. How each story is constructed. When you see the construction and layout of each story, understanding becomes as simple as looking at a blueprint or looking at a full picture instead of trying to imagine the scene in a picture by examining only a small, isolated segment of that picture. Everyone knows that in their heart. But the way the world teaches understanding is contrary to true understanding and infinite knowledge. No one can ever explain scripture from a view point based on this world or human understanding. That is like trying to explain peace in the middle of a war.

We are in a constant state of war in this world. The first son born to Adam and Eve killed his younger brother. The brother he was supposed to care and watch over. The first son born in this world was totally caught up in this world of sin and lost sight of Heaven. That is a lesson this world should have never forgotten. But the world was destined to rally into the the world Cain forged in his imagination. Heaven was gone. Paradise was lost. Working the fields was time spent blaming God for those loses. Cain never gave a moment of thought to how his father turned his back on God and accepted the advise of his wife and the devil who influenced her. Blame was placed on the Creator, and the truth has been ignored since the beginning of mankind.

Things would have been different if Cain gave thanks to God for the little things in life. The earth, the ground he dug in, and the seeds he planted. Thanks for the sunlight and water God provided to nourish the seed. Thanks for the minerals in the ground that helped the plants grow. God created the perfect system. Unseen elements worked in conjunction with one another to produce food. God placed little unseen factories inside each seed to combine water, sunlight, minerals from the soil, and carbon dioxide to produce fibers. God gave each seed the knowledge to place each molecule in perfect strands to produce a wide variety of elements to carry nutrients, add strength and stability, and yet sway in the wind. Each seed had the ability to produce and multiply cells with specific tasks. Some gather sunlight. Other cells gather water. Some cells knew how to separate carbon dioxide from the air and send those atoms to the right place where other cells did the task of combining the right amount of water, carbon dioxide, and the right minerals to produce the cells the plant needed to grow. Other cells carried those cells to the right place and laid them all in perfect order. This happens millions of times a day in every plant. God placed all of that knowledge in each seed and every cell that seed produces. All of those cells work in a perfect harmony with no other leader, commander, or individual other than God. God’s little factories are unseen, but they still work. Every cell in every living plant and creature has a role and fulfills that role without question. That was until Eve decided to question God. Then Adam questioned God. And that habit was passed onto Cain. Who passed it onto the rest of mankind.

Everyone knows what happened to Enoch. And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. (Genesis 5:21-24 KJV).

The Bible doesn’t fill in a whole lot of details about Enoch, but we have to remember, the Bible communicates in symbols. What does Enoch’s son represent? In human terms, a father and son relationship represent a relationship with God. What does it mean to walk with God. As usual, we need a Hebrew dictionary. When we look at the Hebrew word for walk, it encompasses much more than the English standard definition. It means to walk beside, exercise, grow along side, and a host of other words and terms that help to define a relationship. We know for certain Enoch walked along side God and they conversed. They had discussions. Enoch got to know God and of course God knew Enoch. Since that series of short stories in the Bible fails to disclose other encounters with God at that time, we have to look at the actual picture it paints for us. Enoch’s meeting with God were exclusive. Enoch had to get away from the world to meet with God. They didn’t meet in public places for a cup of coffee, or at the village square for everyone to see. No one recorded such a meeting and the Bible paints a picture of one man walking with God. Only one man left this planet to be with God in Heaven. Enoch got away from this world and meet God in secluded places. That is what we need to do. That is the first step to walking in Enoch’s footsteps and meeting with God like he did.

Imagine yourself in a secluded spot. Or better yet, get in a secluded area away from this world. Separate yourself from this world and prepare to meet your Creator. Listen to the birds. In the city you are more than likely to hear crows. Scavengers that remind you of this world and distract you. In the wilderness you can hear, feel, and see God’s creation. You can smell the scents God placed in this world for you to enjoy. You can see how birds, animals, and insects interact with nature. You can see how God provides for them even in a world of sin. You can feel the sunlight, soft breezes, and hear the leaves rustle in the wind. A symbol Jesus once used to describe the Holy Spirit. Now you are in God’s world. Or something close to His original creation. The main thing is to avoid and eliminate every distraction so you can walk with God. Now you are following in Enoch’s footsteps.

What do you hear? What do you see? Remember, God communicates in symbols. Is God giving you a promise or a warning? When I went into that secluded world I saw a house and somehow knew that house would unfold and reveal something. The roof had a dividing line where it would separate. I needed ropes to pull the house down from the top of the roof and I knew the house was designed to rotate along the walls to fold down and reveal what was inside. It was a team effort to pull the one side of that house down. Inside was a nasty looking old man, green in complexion from the lack of a healthy diet. He was fat with a long distorted chin, thin pale lips, inset eyes, super skinny long hands and fingers with long wicked looking finger nails. His left hand reached over to mounds of cockroaches he scooped up and piled into his mouth. The man was fake news. He fed off people with no common sense, only a primitive drive to survive and please themselves. No matter how many he ate, his food supply was not exhausted.

Most Christians seem to believe there will be an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the last days. According to Peter, that outpouring began on Pentecost and has continued ever since.

But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel: “And it shall be in the last days, says God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. And in those days I will pour out My Spirit upon My slaves and My slave women, and they shall prophesy. And I will give wonders in the heaven above, and miracles on the earth below, blood and fire and vapor of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before that great and glorious Day of the Lord. And it shall be that everyone who shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

And hearing this, they were stabbed in the heart, and said to Peter and to the other apostles, Men, brothers, what shall we do? Then Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ to remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all those afar off, as many as the Lord our God shall call. (Acts 2:16-21, 37-39 MKJV)

The Bible never talks about an outpouring then a withdraw of the Holy Spirit. That is a man made concept started by those who joined forces with the one who placed himself above God and refused to listen to the Holy Spirit. Those who considered themselves wiser than God. Teachers who do not believe God cannot understand modern society.

The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord GOD: “Because your heart is proud, and you have said, ‘I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods, in the heart of the seas,’ yet you are but a man, and no god, though you consider yourself as wise as a god– you are indeed wiser than Daniel; no secret is hidden from you; by your wisdom and your understanding you have gotten wealth for yourself, and have gathered gold and silver into your treasuries; by your great wisdom in trade you have increased your wealth, and your heart has become proud in your wealth– therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Because you consider yourself as wise as a god, therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon you, the most terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom and defile your splendor. They shall thrust you down into the Pit, and you shall die the death of the slain in the heart of the seas. Will you still say, ‘I am a god,’ in the presence of those who slay you, though you are but a man, and no god, in the hands of those who wound you? You shall die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of foreigners; for I have spoken, says the Lord GOD.” (Ezekiel 28:1-10 RSVA).

I’ve lost count of the Christian churches who insist the church and its committees have taken the place of the Holy Spirit. Jesus told us, “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you. “A little while, and you will see me no more; again a little while, and you will see me.” (John 16:13-16 RSVA). According to Jesus, the Spirit will guide us. The Spirit is all truth. Jesus never mentioned any person, church, or committee. That is all man made lies designed to distract and control people.

This world is filled with distractions. Satan introduced those distractions in Heaven and was thrown out of Heaven because he thought his trade system was better than God’s.

I ordained and anointed you as the mighty angelic guardian. You had access to the holy mountain of God and walked among the stones of fire. “You were blameless in all you did from the day you were created until the day evil was found in you. Your rich commerce led you to violence, and you sinned. So I banished you in disgrace from the mountain of God. I expelled you, O mighty guardian, from your place among the stones of fire. Your heart was filled with pride because of all your beauty. Your wisdom was corrupted by your love of splendor. So I threw you to the ground and exposed you to the curious gaze of kings. You defiled your sanctuaries with your many sins and your dishonest trade. So I brought fire out from within you, and it consumed you. I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching. All who knew you are appalled at your fate. You have come to a terrible end, and you will exist no more.” (Ezekiel 28:14-19 NLTse).

Look at all the distractions we face today that are tied to money. Fake news is a prime example. Fake news is based on lies. Lies attract the attention of masses of people. Those lies do nothing but waste time and make tons of money for the website owner. I saw one fake news website with over 60 ads. No one knows for sure how much those sites make. Google, the leading ad service provider publishes one set of rates for average websites, but has a totally different pay scale for mega sites with thousands of views a day.

Advertisers bid for ad space on a website. The more views the website has, the higher price they demand for ad space. Many of those sites receive $20-$30 for every 1000 views. Whenever someone opens one of those sites, it counts as one visit or hit. For every viewer the website is paid 2.5 cents per ad. With 60 ads, the website is paid $1.50 for every visit, or every page viewed. Visit 4 pages on that site and you put $6 in the pocket of the website owner. People share the strangest stories. The greater the lie, the more the story is shared. Everyone who shares that story on social media puts at least $15.00 in the devils pocket. Share that fake news story on social media, 10 people view that story, and each one of them places $1.50 in the pockets of the devil. Not only that, but everyone who shares fake news adds to the devil’s plan to distract people and waste time.

Fake news may be the largest distraction the devil uses today. Fake news covers religious sites that hit the Internet with an endless stream of guesses at prophecies that do nothing but steal time from personal study and persuade innocent sheep some group or qualified person has some special gift to do their studies for them. If one of those fake news religious sites actually had one minute of contact with the Holy Spirit, they would be publishing stories about their contact with the Holy Spirit and telling people how the Holy Spirit communicates with this world. They would also be teaching people how to study scripture on their own. The Holy Spirit would teach them how to use scripture to show God exists, and is in control of this world.

Fake new distracts people with false stories along political lines. Artificial intelligence has been introduced to computer systems for nearly a generation. Since about 2011 artificial intelligence has been used to market products via the Internet.

Companies are using systems that employ data-mining algorithms that analyze the customer database, giving further insight into the customer. This information may refer to socio-economic characteristics, earlier interactions with the customer, and information about the purchase history of the customer.[15] Various systems have been designed to give organizations control over their data. Automation tools allow the system to monitor the performance of campaigns, making regular adjustments to the campaigns to improve response rates and to provide campaign performance tracking.

Artificial Intelligence has been integrated into news and media sites to track viewers, analyze viewers habits, and post news stones designed to attract their attention. A story is written, added to the artificial intelligence program and the computer customizes the story for the individual viewer. News sites love to use artificial intelligence to reconfigure political stories and offer articles designed for the taste of each particular viewer. Not only are ads designed to lure viewers, so is the news you read.

Turn on the TV and their broadcasts are designed around distractions during this stay at home order. TV stations flood the airwaves with every idea to entertain yourself. Stories on how famous people cope with being shut ins. And of course the latest movies and other distractions. The devil doesn’t want you to have a moment to yourself. Not when you can watch news about the latest protests. Protests designed around regaining the worldly definition of freedom. A brand of freedom the devil invented in Heaven and was banished to this world to experiment with. Well how has that experiment been working?

The devil believes angels, and all of God’s creation can obtain a higher level if God loosened up a few laws. The devil believes in a system where competition brings out the best in God’s creation and the most able beings will display a higher level of intelligence and understanding if given the opportunity. Those individuals will display their leadership and organizational skills and help shape a society above and beyond what God created. In this world we call the devil’s idea the monetary system. This world runs on money. Everything in this world relies on money. When this virus hit, the world was faced with two major concerns, death and money. Plans were simultaneously initiated to solve both issues, contain and cure the virus, and prop up the economy. Think of this. The virus and the economy were both Satan’s invention. Within hours the Internet and media shifted all the attention off God and placed all the attention on that virus and the economy. The devil did exactly what he wanted to do, place all the attention on himself. Not that there was a lot of attention on God before that virus hit. But when it did hit, the devil was able to control the attention of even the most devoted Christian.

The devil has been investing in other distractions. Spaceship sightings, super sized meteors threatening this world, a thousand conspiracy rumors, and all of those one world government and mark of the beast stories. All lies. All distractions invested by the devil and his agents to take attention off God and place it where? On the people running to be the first to use lies to find fame and fortune.

One of the most threatening distractions the world faces today is the political promise of making lives easier with more equality and freedom for all. We have come to know those ideals are socialism. The promises of a free and equal society with a central government that ensures all people are a part of one common class. The devil is rather sly. On one hand the devil is promising the very society he despised in Heaven. In Heaven everyone is equal. God provides everything. Food, clothing, homes, and more. The devil knows the Spirit is trying to reach people by teaching them about Heaven. So the devil distorts a few of the facts and offers his own personal brand of social equality. The proof is in what the devil actually offers and has delivered. World history is filled with promises of an advanced society based on total equality. We have to look at who the devil recruited to establish those societies. Hitler,Lennon, Marx, Poe Pot, and others made promises of an advanced society where everyone is equal. Look at what those people delivered. As soon as they were in power, each of those leaders set out on a mission of genocide. Next to viruses, socialism in all its forms is responsible for killing more people than anything else in this world. Well wars may be responsible for more deaths.
