Why is Satan an ancient serpent/ ancient dragon?
Shalom, it is by the grace of our God that we saw the sun again today. Welcome to study together the word of God which is the food for our souls.
The Bible says in ..
Revelation 20: 1 “And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, THAT OLD SERPENT, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,”
Satan is known as the old serpent or old dragon … meaning he has lived for a long time, and he has lived as the ancient dragon/serpent ever since … And if you know anything that has been around for a long time, it must have enough experiences about life, for example, an old man man must know a lot than youngs. Older people are more knowledgeable than teenagers.
Because they have experienced so many things in their lives and have learned so much, they have learned from their mistakes and from the mistakes of other people … so they can never be compared to newborn babies or teenagers.
Likewise the devil is also known as the old serpent/ old dragon…
It means that he knows so many things about man … he has existed since Eden, he knows Adam in face, shape and character he has not forgotten, he knows Eve also … he knows Noah, and he was witnessing how the world was being destroyed by the flood … he was looking … He still remembers Abraham’s image and of Sarah … remembers where they had bothered him in their lives. He remembers Moses … and he still knows all of his character and knows his weaknesses. He has Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar’s face, and Elijah and he remembers their behavior … He also knows the Head of Life, Jesus Christ, remembers all the events from his birth until he was there in the wilderness to tempt him, and when he died and rose, he knows his power and the power he now has…etc
So satan knows people very well, he knows people and their behavior, he knows what they like, and what they don’t like … He has seen all the generations from Adam until now …
Just ask yourself until now you are under age of 70 probably and yet you can categorize some people’s behavior and some tribes so much that you probably even knew someone behavior even if he/she doesn’t speak a word.. you can group him/her even before going so far… Now if you who is under 60 years already know the societies and their habits … How much do you think the devil will know people? For he is from Eden until this day.
I want to tell you that he knows humans well … he knows where to hold captive children, both old and youngs… because man is the same One … to several people back in the past generations and he succeeded … He knows how to bring down the servants of God … because he has tried in the past and succeeded to others so he applies the same experience to people of all ages. He(ancient dragon) knows how to keep people away from praying, he know how to influence them not to seek God, because he has tried that way in the past and it worked. He has enough experience.
Unless you get right into Jesus, you will not defeat Satan in any way, he has more knowledge than you and me,
If you that you do not want the Lord Jesus and that you can prevent yourself from committing adultery without even being in Christ, I want to tell you the truth that you are wasting your time! One day you will commit it … people like you tried the same in the past and he(satan) had caught them, so you are not the first to think it or try it.
Again, If you say you can do good things or without being in Jesus … sister! Satan had already sought solution for people like you probably over 2000 years ago … you might think you are the first to try like that.. but satan has probably 10 million lists of people in the past generations who have tried to act like you out of Christ and he had overcome all of them.
So you who were born these days you cannot surpass the wisdom of the one that existed many years ago … (Do you not know why the devil is called the god of this world? Because he knows human affairs more than any other human being).
That is why the Lord Jesus told him that he is always thinking of what belongs to men and not of God. because he does not study God but study men and how to rule him. Go and read (Matthew 16:23).
So you will ask if the devil knows so much about human affairs, then who can escape? And overcome him?.
The answer is this; In addition to all the greatness of the human consciousness he has in his wisdom, there is one who is much older than him. This one is known as the ANCIENT OF DAYS.
Daniel 7:13 -14 “I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the ANCIENT OF DAYS, and they brought him near before him.
14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed”
Our Father knows us better than Satan knows us. The devil has the experience to bring us down but the wisdom that is with God has the ability to know his thoughts and intentions and plans, and to bring down his thoughts… whatever he wants to think about, we are in Christ already. we have the ability to know all his traps. The divine wisdom penetrates in us that gives us the ability to perceive and overcome all satanic thoughts.
But this wisdom is given only to those who believe in his beloved Son, Jesus Christ.
All others outside of Christ will never be able to defeat the ancient dragon who is the Devil. They will be led to the devil where he wants them to go., that is why a person who is not saved will never have peace, and will never overcome sin, or the will of the world. this is what he does… sometimes he plans to do this or that, but in the end it ends up being another thing … why? It is because he wants to direct himself and think he can succeed with his power and mind.
So if you are not saved, yet the hope of overcoming the ancient dragon is still available today, The Divine wisdom of God wants to enter into you today … do not listen to the devil who tells you in your mind now that you cannot be saved that you have so many sins and God will never forgive you …. he only uses his old tactics, so do not listen him … but you today deny him and make sure you deny him in action … Decide today to stop sinning, repent, stop going to night clubs, decide to stop gossip, decide to stop drunkenness and fornication and the Lord will love you … And the wonderful wisdom from the ANCIENT OF DAYS. (the LORD) our God, will come into thee, that may know his cunning and his tricks..
Proverbs 2:6 “For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.
9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
The Lord bless you.

Question: What did Jesus mean to say..,
“But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery”. (Matthew 5:32)
Answer: The word fornication as it appears in the dictionary, means “having sex with someone you are not yet married to” regardless of whether you are already in marriage or not. Unlike the word Adultery, which comes when a person engages in sexual intercourse with someone other than their partner? (I.e. the act of getting out of wedlock and having sex)
So we can say that the word fornication is a ‘’General’’ term referring to any sexual act that someone is performing in an unlawful manner that is outside of the lawful marriage..It also mean Adultery but adultery can not mean Fornication.
So when the Lord Jesus said there in (Matthew 5:32 and Matthew 19: 9), that I say unto you,
whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery.
He was primarily meaning an act of committing “adultery” by the couples, because the information that was discussed there was about people who are in a relationship of husband and wife.
Therefore, Fornication is a general term, apply to both married couples and non married couples. If someone who is not married, go and commit sexual intercourse to another person who is not married to, He has committed fornication rather than adultery.
So when the Bible said marriage should be respected by all, it really meant it. You can’t just get married and just do the things you want to do, going around and committing adultery thinking that once the marriage is already closed it cannot be broken. The bible says it can be broken in that case, and other couple can be free to get married to another person.
But it should also be noted that it was not a requirement that every act of infidelity be a reason for a man to leave his wife and marry another one. No, God hates divorce the Bible has emphasized that, and most of all, we have been taught to forgive, for even we sin against God in many ways, but he forgives us, why can’t you forgive your couple when caught her cheating?
So forgiveness is a very important basis for marriage to stand. And most of all marriage must be respected with all, knowing that he is the God who connected it. Let only death separate it, and not any man.
Question: After Cain killed his brother, we know from the bible he fled to the land of Nod. I want to know from there where did he get his wife?
If we read closely Genesis 5:1-5 (kjv), It says..
1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:
4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:
5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.
Now look again verse 4, it clearly suggests Adam begat sons and daughters. Now From one of those daughters, Cain picked his wife, but someone asked me a question: If so, does God allow siblings to marry each other?.
Yes, he allowed it to be so for sometime , but latter on he forbid, remember Even Eve was made from Adam’s rib, so if you consider it was sin for Cain to marry his sister, now what about Eve who was more than a sister to Adam, since she was made out of Adam’s rib..
See?, Without doubt we know for sure that Cain married one of his sister and not one of the Giant apes which was hidden in the forest as others would thought!
Who is the Holy Spirit?
Many people wonder who the Holy Spirit is? The simple answer is that, the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. God has the Spirit just as man has a spirit, no human being is without a spirit.
And the Bible says in Genesis 1:26 that man was created in the image and likeness of God. If it means that if a person has a spirit, then God has a spirit, and if a person has a soul, then God has a soul also. Because we are made in His image and likeness. And just as man has a body, so does God has a body.
And the Body of God is none other than that manifested at Calvary 2,000 years ago. That is the body of the Lord Jesus Christ, so Jesus Christ is God Himself manifested in the flesh. So he who saw Jesus saw God (John 14: 8-10)
1Timothy 3:16 “ And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”.
The one who is referred there is Jesus.
And so the spirit that was in the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ is the Spirit of God and is the HOLY SPIRIT Himself. We prove that in the book of…
Acts 16: 6 “Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.
8 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas”
Now you will ask if the Spirit of Jesus is the Holy Spirit how about when somewhere else where the Lord Jesus appears to be full of the Holy Spirit. And somewhere the Holy Spirit come down upon him?..how could it be possible?
The answer is that the Spirit of God is limitless as our human souls are limited, we humans God created our spirit to have boundaries in our flesh..Our spirits only operate inside our bodies. They have boundaries but not God’s Spirit.
Our spirits cannot work outside of our consciousness or our bodies. I cannot speak to you here and at the same time my spirit is in China. That is impossible for us humans, But it is possible for God. His spirit has the ability to be everywhere, which is why, you who are here in Tanzania will pray this time and someone in China will pray and someone in America will be worshiping God at the same time the Holy Spirit hears and serves them everyone individually. He has the power to be in heaven, and on earth in the Body of the Lord Jesus and at the same time in hell.
That’s why you’ll see he was in Christ, and yet he came down upon Christ like a dove, and was released upon us on the day of Pentecost like a wind.
That is the difference between the Spirit of God and the spirit of man. Our spirits are limited but the Spirit of Jesus is limitless.
And why is the Spirit of Jesus known as the Holy Spirit?
Because he is the Holy Spirit, that is the greatest and unique attribute of the Spirit of Jesus that he carries. He is holy and does not mix with filthiness.
And that is why the earliest proof of a person who received the Holy Spirit is holiness he manifests. When you have received the power of being a son of God, you become like JESUS.
Have you received it in your heart? if not yet, why? The Bible has said the promise is free and we are given it for free, to anyone who will believe.
Acts 2:39 ” For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call
The cost of receiving the Spirit is not money but just a decision! If you seek God diligently you will find him..His Word says so.
So the simplest way to find Him is to repent first: That means to stop sinning, then to be baptized in correct water baptism (John 3:23) and in the name of Jesus for the remission of sins according to Acts 2:38.. And the Holy Spirit will come into you, who will give you the power to become holy like He is Holy. He will also presents you with his Spiritual gifts. Only then will you receive the power to be his witness
Remember the Bible says that all who do not have the Holy Spirit are not His (Read Romans 8: 9), so it is our responsibility to seek the Holy Spirit diligently. Because you will never know God, or receive the power to overcome sin if you do not have the Holy Spirit in you.
The Lord bless you.
Love is the act of expressing the innermost feelings toward another person. It’s a feeling that shows either you are satisfied with them, or you have accepted them, or you want to have closer relationship with them.etc
This is love of husband and wife. Solomon had tried to explain about this kind of love. He said..
Song of Solomon 1:13-17 (KJV)
13 A bundle of myrrh is my well-beloved unto me; he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts.
14 My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi.
15 Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thou hast doves’ eyes.
16 Behold, thou art fair, my beloved, yea, pleasant: also our bed is green.
17 The beams of our house are cedar, and our rafters of fir.
One can not compare this love with the love of people like friends, parents or relatives,
2. The second kind of love is love which born from related things.Also Known as “PHILEO”.
This love arises from the particular relationships one person has with another person, whether it be a relative, or a friend, or a playmate, or a co-worker. It is a love that can not come if there is no closeness or some kind of benefit that one can get from one another,
Believers exercise the kind of love, We must love one another, the Bible tells us so (1 John 2: 9-10), it also tells us to love one another as brothers in the Lord, but this kind of love is not available only to believers, but also to unbelievers
As we read in.
Matthew 5:46-47 Kjv
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
Publicans care those who care them back, They Love who show love back, but those who don’t. They don’t also.
See, this love has not yet reached its own standard of genuine love..
3. The third kind of love is unconditional love.Also know as “Agape” (Godly love).
This is the love that Jesus Christ was speaking of, it is love that you love another person without any cause, it is superficial love, which does not count whether a person loves you back or not, whether he hates you or does not hate you, whether he speaks on you wrongly or correctly , if he has benefits to you, or he has not.
This love is what JESUS had for us, when the Bible says that He “loved us unto the end” (John 13: 1). it meant to say that He truly loved us not because we were saints, or because we were evil … or because he was seeking greatness from us, No he just loved us, the way we are, deep from his heart, to the point of giving his life for us.
And this kind of love is what the Lord wants each one of us to have, We know It’s hard to reach, especially when we see someone who hates us or speaks wrong of us that is the one we should love, there is some kind of hardship.
It doesn’t matter how much love we express to our husbands, or wives, or brothers or friends if we have not yet been able to reach this AGAPE love, before God we still have no love.
These are the qualities of Agape love.
1 Corinthians 13 :4-7 (KJV)
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
So, in order that you and I can achieve this kind of love, we must not wait for it like the two above, but we must cultivate it patiently, by not retaliating with evil, without gossiping others, etc
We should all pray that God will help all of us get into that point, because that’s where God Himself dwells, and that’s what is known as the greatest gift. With it you are more than any prophet, or any teacher, or any evangelist, or any apostle in the world. That love will bring you closer to God than any thing in this world.
God bless you.
Shalom, child of God
Today let’s study the Bible again together.
There are some who think that there is no salvation in the world! but I want to tell you that salvation is right here on earth. It begins here.
The Bible says as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the coming of the son of man, and as it was in the days of Lot, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man. So when we learn what things were going on shortly before these two events of the destruction of the world, we can understand clearly what will happen in the days of Christ’s second coming.
The only event we can learn before the Fire fell down to Sodom and Gomorrah is how people were saved … There are many events took place but today we’ll talk about this one.
The Bible says…
Genesis 19:12 “And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.
14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city;”
We read there, before the destruction, there was an urgent gospel passed… Lot was told to tell his brothersi in law and relatives to leave the city, because the city was going to be destroyed, and if his relatives believed him, everyone would be scared and run to tell their other relatives elsewhere… So in a short period of time so many people would be saved … if people had ears to hear the warnings and become God-fearing, even after the sentence was pronounced, there would still be room for salvation! But people ignored it and got destroyed by the fire.
And if you also consider the time of the Flood. Noah was not only one saved, but he was told to gather all his family together with him… Obviously he also went to tell them the same things as Lot… but it is possible that he also seemed to be playing before their eyes! No wonder he ended up going into the ark with his three sons and their wives, just as Lot and his two daughters!
Genesis 7: 1 “And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
5 And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.
6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. 7And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood”
Brother this little opportunity that God gives after judgment is pronounced is not about going to do good, no! it’s a chance to be saved and escape!!. Judgment is already pronounced.. it cannot be reversed. It must come just as it is pronounced!, It’s now a chance to escape the world and get into the ark, just as you are … It’s time to flee Sodom and Gomorrah… don’t go ask your father or mother’s permission. Should I supposed to be saved?..just flee..
Run away from sodomites as you are!… salvation starts from there you are in Sodom..because the judgment has been pronounced … Noah’s children didn’t need much holiness to get into the ark … they were not perfect and that’s why you see after coming out of the ark, Ham saw the nakedness of his Father … But they obeyed the gospel and so were saved! Only the last Noah’s Gospel saved them!. Remember brother/sister when the door of the ark is closed…then! there was no more time for God to listen to the prayers of the people… it is either you entered the ark and be saved or remain in the world and perish.
Once you enter the ark you are already saved! Even if the flood has not started yet!
And in the last days near the second coming of our Lord Jesus, there is a gospel that is being preached by the Holy Spirit, we cannot sit and ask God not to destroy the world!. He said the day of doom would come! No one can change that … And so there are only two options before us! Remain in the world to perish or enter the ark to live! THE ARK IS THE LORD JESUS.
If you want to be saved from destruction that is ahead of us, accept Jesus today, repent and go be baptized by immersion and in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, because the destruction is about to begin.
Again, are you saved? … Have you obeyed the gospel of the Holy Spirit that warns us to keep away from the world?..have you received the Holy ghost baptizim?
The Lord bless you

Despite having the Gospel of the Cross, which is the essence of every human being, there is another gospel also known as the Everlasting Gospel. This one is different from the gospel of cross.
The gospel of the cross itself declares salvation to man only, through one man called JESUS CHRIST our Lord. Any other gospel that claims to redeem man and does not place the Lord Jesus as the essence of the gospel itself, that gospel is void, because He alone is the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one will see God, except through him, the Bible says so (John 14: 6).
So, there are many gospels claiming that they can redeem man, but only one can save man! And that is the gospel through Jesus Christ, that’s what the Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 11:4 (KJV)
4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
See there? The Bible says there is another Jesus, another spirit and another gospel which were not preached by the apostles. Therefore, any gospel associated with the redemption of man should target JESUS CHRIST crucified as a major figure for salvation, him alone and not with someone else beside him.
But today we will briefly look at the Everlasting Gospel that was existed and spoken of in the Bible.
Revelation 14:6-7 (KJV)
6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
As its name “Eternal” proclaim, it means that it is the gospel that has existed even before man was created, which exist even now, and will continue to exist forever,
Remember the Gospel of the Cross had a beginning, and it will have an end someday, its beginning was at Calvary, and the end will be at the day of Rapture. After that there will be no place for redemption, because the door of grace will be closed at that time. What will remain is the same gospel that existed forever and ever.
Romans 10:13-15 (KJV)
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
you see there, there has to be somebody to preach it, in order for people to be saved. Unlike the everlasting Gospel. This gospel is not transmitted by preaching to anyone; It is God himself who puts it in a person, in a special area of the human heart called ” conscience”.
which everyone is born with. And it works to condemn all the evil ways that go against God’s will in man. And this Gospel is not existing only for mankind, it existed even for angels, because it is the everlasting one,
So any one who is born a human being, there is already something in him that will be witnessing the good and the bad things called concise?
without even being preached to, or reminded by anyone, for example, everyone knows that murder is wrong, whether he has the fear of God or has not. everyone knows that abuse is evil, regardless of whether the law said it or not, in his heart the conscience preaches to him that the act is wrong.
Likewise, it does not need to read the Bible to know that oppression is wrong, robbery is wrong, blasphemy, rape, corruption is wrong, all those crimes even if one has never heard of God, or anything called God will knows exactly what things are not right.
it also doesn’t need to go to biblical institutions to realize that having sex with your blood relative is wrong, as well as homosexuality is wrong; Now that’s what is called the everlasting Gospel, which God preaches in the human heart. And yes, in the last days that angel will come to reminder people, to fear God. But when those things begin to happen rapture has taken place already.
So do not think that those people who have not heard of Jesus (the Gospel of the Cross) anywhere, will not be condemned. No. They will be judged just like the rest of the gospel. The people of Noah’s day did not have the law God gave them as the people of Moses but they were judged, and that is why the Apostle Paul described these people as we read in ..
Romans 1:17-32 (KJV)
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 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;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 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. You have seen there brothers, the Bible says they know full well those who do such things deserve death but still do it.
That concise inside testify to them that what they are doing is wrong but they continue to do it,
What about you Who is in sin today? You are waiting for a preacher one day to prove for you from scripture smoking is sin? immorality is a sin? But your concise is telling you for sure what you are doing is wrong tells you completely what you are doing is wrong … know that judgment awaits you.
You who wear a short skirts, and walk half naked on the street you say God doesn’t look outside appearance, but your heart tells you for sure what you have weared is wrong but you ignore, you are wearing pants, wearing makeup, lipstick, and wearing a wig and here, the judgment is in the future sister! ,
you who gossip, you who are homosexual, you who practice abortion, you are an adulterer, you are an alcoholic, you are watching pornography, you are masturbating, you are worshiping idols of the dead saints. The judgement is awaiting you.
2 Corinthians 6:16 (KJV)
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
But the Bible goes on to say that as you keep your heart hard, there will come a time God will let you continue with your wickedness, because you have refused to obey the voice that speaks in you, until the day of judgment comes and you will go to hell !!
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;
So, God’s sister / sister sentence is not inevitable until you are out of the church, the only way is to surrender your life to the Lord Jesus who gave his life to save you.

The biggest war going on in the world today is the war between God’s side and Satan’s side. God seeks for the souls of men as well as Satan seeks out the souls of men. These two spirits have been opposing eacher other, all along since the world began to be inhabited by humans.
But after man fell God used all means by his Spirit to draw him back, and at last it was good to bring his beloved son JESUS CHRIST for one purpose! And that is reconciling us to God, that in him we may all be saved.
Likewise Satan, used all his means to drive a man away from the purpose of God and to draw him to his side, this war began from Eden, when Satan used the serpent to deceive Eve to get his first captive.
And after some period when he saw that God had brought a savior in flesh, JESUS CHRIST and drew many people to the Father, he also began to plan for a single person who would have the specific task of drawing people to him and going against the one God had chosen (ie JESUS CHRIST). Now this son of Satan is called the Antichrist.
Remember the first battle before Christ came was spirit to spirit (ie the Spirit of God against the spirit of the devil), but the last battle is MAN against man (ie JESUS CHRIST against the Antichrist).
When many Christians miss their goal, it is when they fail to understand who Jesus Christ is and who the Antichrist is. If you fail to understand who JESUS CHRIST is, you cannot understand who the Antichrist is.
These two individual are both recorded in the WORD of God(Holy Bible) in “,MYSTERIES”. It means to recognize them in fullness it require “THE REVELATION FROM THE SPIRIT OF GOD” otherwise it would be much difficult to know them in fullness. In short, let’s look at the mystery of JESUS CHRIST that has been hidden for a long time and even now some people is still hidden from their eyes.
THE MYSTERY OF JESUS CHRIST:
1 Timothy 3:16 ” And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory”.
If you read careful you will notice there is something that God kept secret, and it is a clear fact that Jesus Christ was GOD IN THE FLESH. That is the Spirit of God working in the flesh, but many did not know it and rejected and crucified him, and even today many do not know it.
For the Lord Jesus said, “John 5:43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not; if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. “
You see! the other Lord whom Jesus spoke of, that will come in his name and people receive him is the Antichrist himself … read again the following verse.
1 Corinthians 2: 6-8 ″ Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. “.
Even today people in their hearts regard JESUS CHRIST as ordinary individual as they did then, despising his words not by mouth but by deeds, but they do not know that they are rejecting and crucifying God Himself, the Lord of Glory though their deeds, Dear brother/sister the Lord Jesus shed his blood for our sins to atone for us and yet today you are playing with it?, it will come a time when this grace will no longer be there for you.
THE MYSTERY OF ANTICHRIST:
2 Thessalonians 2: 3 “ Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved”.
If you can read again verse 7, it talks about the mystery of iniquity that works in the world, and this mystery of apostasy works within the WICKED ONE(WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST HIMSELF) as the scripture mentions in verse 9, that “his work is a his own work of the devil ”. Just as the Mystery of Godliness was operating in JESUS CHRIST, and the act of Jesus was an expression of God’s own work. In the same way (Antichrist) the mystery of rebellion works in him and his action will be a reflection of Satan himself.
NOW WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST?
After the devil saw that he could not get many people who want to worship him directly as humans worship God, he decided to transform himself into an angel of Light (2Cor. 11:14), in order to trap those who showed a love for Light.
Remember that Satan does not fight with the people of this world(wicked people), not at all!…because he has caught them and are always in darkness, in his side…so he can not fight with people that works with him.
Therefore in order to gain those who follows the light, he must disguise himself as an angel of Light, so his servants must also disguise themselves as servants of light. This is where there is a fierce battle when the wolf comes in a sheep’s garment. So it requires the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to recognize the antichrist otherwise we will not know where our enemy is and how he works.
Brethren! there are many satanic and magical groups, such as freemason, rotary clubs, iluminati, ku klux klan, brotherhood, and so forth, this groups have been feared as if they were the headquarters of the devil, do not be deceived, these are the groups that the devil uses to lure non-Christians and a few Christians with not strong faith, because a true Christian who stand firmly cannot go to the witch doctor and the devil knows it, and he cannot join in any of those groups or shoot. The demon, or demon-to seek help, the devil knows perfectly well.. that is why he changed tactic on how to trap him… if he were to rely only on that path, he knows he would miss most of the Christians in the world. He realizes that a Christian in his place will meet God is in the church and that is where he follows the Christians.
Remember again, Satan works in secrecy, and that is why it is called the ” mystery of iniquity “. and it works within the Church of God when the devil wears sheep’s clothing, but on the inside he is a BLOOD KILLER (This is a secret), destroy the souls of people (true Christians) and send them to hell. He uses his cunning to make people think that they are worshiping God, while they are worshiping him. He goes into church and makes people feel that they are in the right way, but in the end it is hell,. And what he sends to hell in this way is far greater than even those other small means like magic, freemason etc. THIS IS WHEN CHRIST said ” BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS, WHICH COME TO YOU IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, BUT INWARDLY THEY ARE RAVENING WOLVES 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?”.
Brethren, the Lord has not warned us to beware of witches, wizards, or freemasonry, or spiritists.
After the devil secretly enters the church of God and for a long time, we see that he began by destroying the true teachings of God and introducing pagan doctrines like worship of the dead, worshiping three gods, adding books to the WORD of God, idolatry etc. the same devil bless alcohol in the church, and he twisting the Word of God by distorting the correct baptism of water, and the Holy Spirit baptising, he did so by killing spiritual gifts, infusing ungodly politics and titles, killing doctrines of divine healing, etc.
By doing so, he succeeded in creating his own church, a “dead one” with the same name as the original church but not, at that point people think that they are worshipping the true God knowing not that they are worshipping satan., The devil gave this name to his church and called it UNIVERSAL CHURCH, the Church of the World (Catholic Church).
And he (the devil) as the god of that church, he ordained his servants, and he held the highest position in that church, which is the very title of the Papacy (and that is the title of the Antichrist himself) standing on earth as Jesus Christ stood on God’s behalf on earth. We know throughout history that catholic church became his instrument to fight against the seed of God, it succeeded in killing over 68 million Christians, who tried to go against its pagan systems. And to this day the church continues to kill many people spiritually, thinking they worship God while they are worship Satan in that church. And it will come to kill many more during the time of great tribulation.
Thus the spirit of the antichrist rests in the position or seat OF THE POPE, so anyone who remains in that position will have met all criteria to be the Antichrist.
Today’s gospel, according to our time, is not just a gospel to draw people to Christ alone, because many have rejected Christ but do not know that they worship the devil without knowing it in their denominations thinking they are right.
Brother God has already pronounced a curse on the Catholic church and all denominations that do not live under the guidance of the Holy Spirit (for these together make up the mark of the beast). For a more in-depth understanding of the mark of the beast you can read our article titled “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.”
These are the words of the Lord himself.
Revelation 18: 4-5 ″ And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities “
The Lord warns us to come out (not by the feet but by the spirit. Come out of pagan doctrines which the Lord has condemned them that whomever associates with them will take part in all his organized plagues because they have participated in the shedding of the many blood of God’s saints.
God Bless you.
QUESTION: If God made His creatures perfect Where did Satan get that evil from? And Who created evil and wickedness?
ANSWER: Any good thing we see, until we know it is good, it is because there is something wrong that proves its goodness.
For example when you taste sugar until you know that sugar is sweet it is because you came across with something like salt before, or else you wouldn’t say sugar is sweeter……or when you see the light, until you know that this is light, it is because you have seen the dark and now how it looks light…
Nevertheless You would never new that this is a day if you have never seen the night before, you could never know that you are healthy if you have never been sick etc.
You can not judge foolishness if you haven’t known wisdom, one can be called gentle only because there is brute , until you know that there is a tall one it because there are shorts to compare with, you can not say this person is so meek while you haven’t seen an angry person, therefore the negative side is there to prove that positive exists, and everything is the same.. white-to-black, woman-to-man..etc
Now when God began to create His creatures, He created them all perfect, and allow them to taste goodness…But they would not known the goodness if there is no evil..thefore evil must also be there to prove the goodness.
The first group of createures to be created were angels, then follows humans…so from the beginning the angels were given ability to know good and evil in order to be complete.
Then, the angels knew now that in order for them to be holy as God they must hate unholy acts, in order to be good they must reject the evil of hating their fellow angels and their creator, in order to be honest then, they not to lie to one another etc.
Isaiah 45: 7 “I form the light, and create darkness; I have made amends, and have sought out evil; I am the Lord, who does all these things.
Lamentations 3:38 “Out of the mouth of the most High proceedeth not evil and good ”?
But later on things changed. Some angels, led by their father Satan, began to turn away from truth, and wanted to govern themselves, so they thought it is the best idea to choose evil to fulfill their fate, now instead of love they began to hate, they hated their fellow obedient angels, they also hated their creator who created them all, they began to lie, and began to destroy and fighting.
Then, when sin gained power in them, they lacked the glory of God, they became more wicked and wicked, and as the result were cast out of heaven from the God’s holy habitation.
So if you ask where the evil came from, know that evil and good were both created by God to fulfill a good purpose. But when those who turned away to love evil more than good they considered evils createres … So where did the devil got the wickedness? The answer is he was created with it.
Even now, whether you are a Christian or not, that knowledge of good and evil has been in you since Eden. It was God’s plan for evil to exist in a person for good purposes. Now it is up to you to choose one side, if you choose goodness then you will try to stay away from evil,and vice versa if you love evil then you will hate goodness.
John 3:19 “And this is the judgment; that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God”.
But we who are saved have loved the Light, that is why God’s judgment is not upon us … as Scripture says in Romans 8: 1.

Blessed be the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
When God wants to move his child from one level to another, he is like pushing him backwards so as to take him up to another level … Nature also teaches us, so that the Arrow to move more farther, it must be pulled back from the bow as hard as possible, it will go a little farther rather than if it would drawn a so softly, the same applies to spear, or catapult. So that everything to get that far, must be pushed back a bit. The harder you pull the further it goes.
After God saw Job’s perfection, how he fears him and refrains from evil … he saw that he deserved to be blessed twice more … and when it came time to bless him, he first brought him down and take away all he had…and he became like an arrow that has drawn backward ready to be released, And, we see later when Job was released he came to get things twice.
When God saw Daniel’s faithfulness in his Persian stewardship, he was placed in a position that he was very faithful, he never received bribes or give bribes … when it came time to elevate him, he had to be brought down first to the lowest level, to a point where he was taken to the lions’ den to be killed … it was like a bow that was pulled back, before it is released. And after the trials He became greater than all rulers of persia (Daniel 6:28).
When God saw Mordecai’s loyalty in the king’s gate as honest, that he is not corrupt, and in his place he was neither a hypocrite nor an evil-minded person with the king, his kind heart was perfect and when he wanted to lift him up … Mordecai had to be pulled down first, for we find that he was prepared for execution when his great enemy went and carved a tall pole 50 cubits high, to hang Mordecai with the king’s permission.
But God saved Mordecai and exalted him to the highest rank of Persian commanders. From the guard of King’s gate to the commander of the army … But he had to first be brought down to near death.
And there are many examples in the Bible where before the Lord lifts a person up from one level to the other…he is bringing him down first the lower position so as to go higher.
So don’t be afraid when you find out you have lost something that is important in your life, maybe a job or a property because of the rights you do … If you lose all you have or even you are at risk of losing even your Life, or your honor then know that the Lord loves you and he is about to lift you up. From your current position… at such step you are now do not give up, just trust the Lord, because he has seen your right and so wants to take you higher as he did to Daniel and Mordecai. But the method he will rise you is the same one he used for his servants in the Bible.
If you find yourself tied to a case that is fraudulent or unfair, if you feel bankrupt because you do not engage in smuggling and you have rejected illegal businesses … it should not bother you at all, you are in the period of being pulled down to the top. Only trust God!
If at first your things were going well .. but all of a sudden things turn upside down … you start create so many enemies because of your rightousness, such a point when you reach out do not hate anyone but know that you are to be promoted very soon. That is what God does when he wants to move his child from one level to another.
But if you lost everything because you were a prostitute, or because you were caught taking a bribe, or a corruption or because of something bad or imprisoned or bankrupt … Lord has chasten you to repent … he has done that to you so as to stop your theft, stop your fornication, stop your bribes, stop all evil things you do and turn to Him with all your heart and with all your soul. And after that, he will do the rest for you. But unless you repent, nothing will happen to benefit yoy. Because God did not bring you down to bring you up, like job…but he chastened you to fully repent!
But if you fear the Lord, and serve him, and honor him, and you are truly separated from the world, and suddenly those trials you must rejoice rather that becoming sad, because it is the time for you to be lifted up.
The Lord bless you.
