Christ and Satan! Blessed and Cursed!
Oh to be blessed!
In the past when normal procedures such as praying to God, going to church and reading the Bible were fashionable (before science and humanism took over people's minds and souls), it was common knowledge that there were two dimensions to life - Good and evil, right and wrong, blessed and cursed!
Over the years I have been directly involved in this pattern of change, God revealed and demonstrated personally, how the world had and was transforming into a secular society!
It has become a worldwide pagan/religious/atheist/secular world which has rejected a creator God, the Son and the Holy Spirit and replaced this Holy Trinity with the false one (to be revealed very soon to the world). This false trinity consists of satan who sees himself as the future god (in the final battle) and he has his own son (the future beast-that claims to die and resurrect in the same manner as Yeshua). The false prophet who is to mimic the Holy Spirit, by performing miracles and providing gifts to satan's loyal subjects, is the third person of the unholy trinity(666). These three are written about in the Books of the Bible - Daniel, Isaiah,Ezekiel,Revelation and others.
This false trinity is already in existence but in a covert situation (hidden) soon however, the beast will come out into the open and publicly announce himself. This will occur in Israel on the Temple Mount!
Remember this as it is one of the next prophesies to take place either before or after the Rapture! Only God knows the time!
Satan remains hidden from the world at the moment, preferring to be out of sight while he works his plans behind the scenes. The beast is being prepared and soon to be revealed as the leader of the world and based on the similarities of Christ - the beast is someone who was here on earth in the flesh, who died, and will return in the form of a world leader (Yeshua was on earth in human form, he will return in a different form as the conqueror of the world.). But the prophet has been in existence, working publicly for a long time, however, he has not been formally ,specifically identified yet. He has acquired many loyal followers who tirelessly work for him and have been for decades through the various strains of New Age teachings, Toronto Blessing movements, Pensacola (prosperity movements), false religious cults, false/deceived churches and atheistic teachings. All of these workers have successfully created the worldwide apostasy in existence today!
Satan is a creation -he was created by God, therefore, although powerful he does not and never will match the power of the Almighty Creator God!
Satan has his own religion -his own chosen people, (he counterfeits everything God has and does! His own religion consists of all those who oppose the true God and His son - the True Messiah (Yeshua). Anyone who rejects the son is part of the antichrist movement! "Anyone who is against Christ is also against the father"
Satan's chosen people are of the lineage of Ham, (the cursed generation) who produced the following offspring: Ishmaelites, Arab nations (ancient) i.e. Cush, Canaan, Babylon, Assyria, Philistines and Modern equivalents are Syria, Iraq and Iran (Babylonia) Palestinians and all pagan nations (Canaan). These are all in opposition to Shem and Japheth (Shem, Ham and Japheth are all sons of Noah). Shem is the chosen nation -the Israelites (Jews) and the Japheth generation consist of the remaining people -a mix of believers and nonbelievers, and mix of nations. Satan's religious followers are those who claim to be religious and believer in one god,which appears to be the Creator God, but in fact their god is the false god of this world-SATAN!
Satan cannot create anything he can only expand on what has already been created, he is limited in that he is unable to do anything without God allowing it! However, God has allowed him freedom to test his people and to be part of the process of preparing and training God's people to become refined as gold, and ready to enter God's presence (see the book of Job). This refinement can only be achieved through an acceptance of His Son Christ Yeshua and through Yeshua's teachings on righteous living. Believers have to go through a refinement process to achieve the holiness and understanding of God's kingdom, hence throughout our walk we suffer troubles and difficulties, which help us to mature in our understanding.
No one can enter the Kingdom of God accept through Christ, that means that sinful humans become holy through the teachings of the Holy Spirit that prepare them through the Holy gifts such as Wisdom, discernment and righteousness. The Holy Spirit took over when Yeshua went back to be with His Father in Heaven. The Holy Spirit was sent in Yeshua's place to counsel believers, and to prepare them for God's Kingdom.
We have been taught for many years that satan's goal is to destroy believers. This is true, however, God protects those who are truly his people. However, those who 'claim' to be his but still have their feet in the world and those who sit on the fence and those who backslide,return, backslide and return, and those who practice wicked deeds yet claim to be followers of Christ, these people need to be refined, to be tested - to test whether they are truly for God and Yeshua or for satan.
WE ARE IN TESTING TIMES!
We are on the verge of a refinement period. Whereby people will be put through difficult events, to test their faith and endurance- this is not to bring about suffering for the sake of it but to produce strong, faithful and dedicated followers of Christ, ready for the spiritual battle to come and ready for when the Messiah returns to collects his people! It is a time of sifting the wheat from the chaff! The harvest is ripening! The potter is soon to finish his pots! He refines them into a perfect shape and makes every pot of his - HOLY! All the pots in Israel -The Holy Land -are HOLY! No unholy pots will be allowed to remain in the Holy Land. Zechariah 14: 20
Judgment on the unholy pots will be such that the false prophet who has deceived many with his false miracles and persuasive tongue, will be cast into the fiery pit of hell for ever! Followed by the beast who killed many believers and those who refused to accept his mark, who refused to follow him.
He kills many during the refining period- the period where many will be put to the test of faith- and "those who overcome will be saved and receive everlasting life!" Those who stand up in the name of Yeshua! Those who reject evil and satan's demands, even though it may cost their lives- they shall see God!
To conclude this message is a passage from 2 Samuel 23, The Last Words Spoken By King David.
" The Spirit of the Lord spoke through me; his word was on my tongue.
The God of Israel spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me; when one rules over men in righteousness, when he rules in the fear of God, he is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning, like the brightness after rain that brings the grass from the earth.
Is not my house right with God? Has he not made with me an everlasting covenant, arranged and secured in every part? Will he not bring to fruition my salvation and grant me my every desire?
But evil men are all to be cast aside like thorns, which are not gathered with the hand. Whoever touches thorns uses a tool of iron or the shaft of a spear; they are burned up where they lie.
I do not know why I wrote this hub except that I had intended to write about King David's last words, however, as always my typing fingers were guided to write the above. I hope it is a blessing to those who love God, Yeshua and the Holy Spirit, and truth. And let it be a curse to those who detest God, Yeshua, the Holy Spirit, and prefer lies!
Blessings be to you who are ready to give up your life for God! Blessed are you who are prepared to stand up for Truth! Blessed are you who speak out in Yeshua's name for His sake and the sake of Truth!
Cursed are those who say that God is a lie! Cursed are those who say that Yeshua was only a man! And cursed are those who say good is evil and evil is good!
Amen (so be it!)
Read Zechariah chapter 14 for further insight, also Revelation Chapter 12: 9 and 12:13,
Chapter 13 and Chapter 14:14-20 and Chapter 21 and Chapter 22.
May God bless you with his word!

Does salvation mean also eternal life? Is the word salvation misunderstood? Is eternal life different to salvation? If so, how does it differ? What is the implication or consequences of this?
