Is God the Devil? Jehovah as the Lord of Darkness [Part II]
Jehovah is Satan?
The answer to this question may seem confusing when one uses faith to answer it, but the facts are clear. Satan is not a name, it is an adjective, it means "adversary".
Jehovah is not Satan, he is the Devil. Has not the devil been given permission to try to turn men away from God's way? Read the Old Testament and see if that is not exactly what Jehovah did. Until this day the Jews are persecuted. They did not conquer their "holy land", if God did promise something to anyone how difficult it would be for the promise to be fulfilled?
In John 14:30 Jesus says:
"I will not speak much more to you, for the prince of this world is near, and he has nothing in me."
Let's start there.
What is a prince? It is one that belongs to a family of sovereigns. It is a title of nobility. Prince is the king's son and heir to the throne and kingdom. Jesus states that before he incarnated the prince of this world already existed. This is Satan, who had previously appeared in the Bible in the Book of Job and the text that states that Satan is received by the god of the Old Testament, and not only confabulate but architect together, the book of Job can be seen as a bet at the expense of a man, Job himself. If Satan were the enemy of God, would he have such a dialogue?
Then who would Jehovah be?
God exists, the Supreme Creator, but he is not the only one. Of all creatures created by God one wanted to create something without having the authority of the Father. With this imperfect abortion this creature became the Demiurge, the Archon. The Demiurge seeing that he had created something in his dementia, concluded that he was also a Creator, equal to or superior to the Supreme Spirit, in the midst of his creation he crystallized what we call the physical world (the material world), and imprisoned spirits of light in physical bodies to create living beings, thus entitling himself the Lord, the God of this World. In 1 Corinthians 4: 4 this is just the title given to the Devil: God of this World! In Revelation 3: 5, another New Testament book, it is written that in battle with the Devil there will be winners and that "he who overcomes will be clothed in white robes, and I will not blot out his name from the book of life, and his name will be told to my Father, and his angels". This is because there is a great value in names to God, it is the identity of each being. If names were worthless, the Demiurge would not make Adam name everything he created. The names of the impure and defeated will be cast into oblivion. See the parable of the rich man and Lazarus told by Jesus, only the beggar Lazarus has a name, for the name of the rich man will never be remembered in eternity. Interestingly Jehovah is not even a name, it is the answer he gives to Moses, when he asks who the being is speaking to him, and the creature replied: "I am what I am".
