Amos Part 6
Amos 6:1 “Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria.”
Amos 6:2 “Pass ye unto Calneh, and see; and from thence go ye to Hamath the great: then go down to Gath of the Philistines: be they better than these kingdoms? Or their border greater than your border.”
Samaria (Strong’s 8111) watch-station; (from the active participle of Strong’s 8104) to hedge about (as with thorns), i.e. guard; generally to protect, attend.
Calneh (Strong’s 3641) of a foreign derivative Calneh or Calno, a place in the Assyrian empire;
Hamath (Strong’s 2574) walled; a place in Syria, Chamath; (From same as Strong’s 2346) to join; a wall of protection.
Gath (Strong’s 1661) Gath, a Philistine city, (from same as Strong’s 1660) a wine-press (or vat for holding grapes in pressing them; (probably from Strong’s 5059 in the sense of treading out grapes); to thrum, i.e. beat a tune with the fingers; especially to play on a stringed instrument; hence to make music.
Philistines (Strong’s 6430) a Pelishite or inhabitant of Pelesheth; (partial from Strong’s 6429) rolling, i.e. migratory, a region of Syria; (from Strong’s 6428) to roll (in dust); roll (wallow) self;
We are back here again Amos. The warning here from God is to the house of Judah and trust in the nation of Samaria, meaning watch station. God is warning that He took down Calneh, an Assyrian empire, Hamath, meaning walled and to Gath, meaning wine press of the Philistines, meaning migratory, a region of Syria, the base means to roll in dust. The Lord is telling them I took down these nations have been overthrown by Babylon by God’s hand, so what do you think will happen to you! God warned the house of Judah and the people in Jerusalem that they would be taken into captivity by the king of Babylon, God’s servant, for seventy years in Jeremiah 25:12. Let’s look at the history of these countries and see their beginnings here:
Genesis 10:1 “Now these are THE GENERATIONS OF THE SONS OF NOAH, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.”
Genesis 10:6 “And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.”
Genesis 10:7 “And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah, and Sabtechah: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.”
Genesis 10:8 “And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.”
Genesis 10:9 “He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, “Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.”
mighty (Strong’s 1368) powerful; by implication warrior, tyrant champion, giant; (same as Strong’s 1397) properly a valiant man or warrior; a person, mighty; (from Strong’s 1396) to be strong; by implication to prevail, act insolently or disrespectful, be stronger or valiant.
After Noah’s flood we see the offspring of Ham, which included Canaan who Noah cursed because he was the result of Ham lying with his mother, as in Genesis 9:21-25. So Nimrod is the son of Cush, Ham’s son. He was a mighty, meaning a giant or valiant man and disrespectful, before the Lord and we are told this twice for emphasis. Nimrod possibly could be the offspring of the fallen angels, as he was a mighty, meaning a champion tyrant or giant, hunter. This tells us after the flood the fallen angels going after the daughters of Adam, or Noah’s family, the only descendants of Adam left on earth. So the reason for Noah’s flood was that the fallen angels instead of being born of women the flesh, they took the daughters of Adam here:
Genesis 6:1 “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,”
Genesis 6:2 “That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.”
Genesis 6:3 “And the LORD said, “My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”
Genesis 6:4 “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” men
Genesis 6:9 “THESE are THE GENERATIONS OF NOAH: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.”
man (Strong’s 120) ruddy, i.e. a human being (an individual or the species, mankind); (from Strong’s 119 to show blood (in the face), i.e. flush or turn rosy, to be dyed, made ruddy.
giants (Strong’s 5303) properly a feller, i.e. a bully or tyrant; giant.
mighty (Strong’s 1368) powerful; by implication warrior, tyrant champion, giant; (same as Strong’s 1397) properly a valiant man or warrior; a person, mighty; (from Strong’s 1396) to be strong; by implication to prevail, act insolently or disrespectful, be stronger or valiant.
perfect (Strong’s 8549) entire, integrity, truth, without blemish, without spot, (from Strong’s 8552) to complete.
generations (Strong’s 8435) descent, i.e. family; (from Strong’s 3205) to bear young; causative to beget; medical to act as midwife; to show lineage.
This was before the flood and the sons of God, the angels, saw the daughters of men, or Adam as man means those ruddy complexion peoples or that showed blood in face. Then God puts a time limit on man’s lifespan to 120 years. So then we see there were giants, or fellers as in fallen angels, and mighty men, or giants or champions, renown men. Then we see why God spared Noah and his family. They were perfect in their generations, or they had no blemish or without spot in their bloodlines, or did not mix with these fallen angels. This was Satan’s second attempt to try and destroy that Seed, Christ that was to come through the woman, Eve, as in Genesis 3:15. We see then here these fallen angels did this in order to disrupt God’s plan of Salvation, and giants or hybrids were produced, and the reason for the God to have the flood to get rid of this. They brought information to try and destroy the fact that each soul was to come to earth and be born innocent through their mother’s womb. Instead these fallen angels, with Satan as their leader told them to go after Adam’s family as here:
Jude 1:6 “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
Jude 1:14 “And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, “Behold, the LORD cometh with ten thousands of His saints,”
Jude 1:15 “To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds with they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
estate (Strong’s 3588) the definite article, the, this that, it, and (from Strong’s 4012) through (all over), i.e. around; figurative with respect to; subject or occasion or superlative point; locality, circuit, matter, circumstance or period; (from base of Strong’s 4008) to pierce; through, i.e. across, farther or other side, over.
habitation (Strong’s 3613) a residence, habitation, house; (from a presumed derivative Strong’s 3611) to occupy a house, i.e. reside (figurative inhabit, remain, inhere); to cohabit, dwell; (from Strong’s 3624) a dwelling; by implication a family; home, household, temple.
These fallen angels did not keep their first estate, meaning their circumstance or period, as they were in heaven and they came to earth, disobeying God and not waiting until they were born of women. Rather they took wives of Adam’s daughters trying to destroy that Seed, Christ, to come through Adam’s bloodline. Then we see Enoch, Noah’s ancestor was warning these fallen angels that the LORD will come with ten thousands of His saints, as we know Jesus will at the end of this earth age, as in Revelation 19:14 with His armies coming at the seventh trumpet here:
Revelation 11:13 “And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.”
Revelation 11:14 “The second woe is past; and behold, the third woe cometh quickly.”
Revelation 11:15 “And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of this world are become the kingdoms of our LORD, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.”
So right at the end of the earth age when Satan is reigning for his short five month reign as in Revelation 9:5 and 9:10, during that same hour, the hour of temptation as in Revelation 3:10, we see the location Jerusalem as Jesus told us in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21, not one stone would stand as this is where Satan will have his headquarters for his one world kingdom, while playing Jesus or God. Then we see here seven thousand men, these are the fallen angels of Jude 1:6 that are held in everlasting chains for judgment for that day. At this point God will destroy them or they will perish, but their names are not listed in the Word. Only Satan, the son of perdition of II Thessalonians 2:3-4, is their leader as in Revelation 17:12-13. Satan then God will put back in chains until the end of the thousand years to test the majority of people living on earth today in this generation of the fig tree of Mark 13:28, as in Revelation 20:7 to test them. The roles of false prophet and the one world kingdom Satan will have at the end of this earth age will be destroyed at Jesus’s return as in Revelation 19:20, but Satan will be put back in chains as in Revelation 20:1-3, probably by Michael and his angels as in Revelation 12:7-9 as he is the archangel holding Satan at God’s command. Now let’s see here where Enoch warned:
Genesis 5:21 “And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:”
Genesis 5:22 “And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:”
Genesis 5:23 “And all the day of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:”
Genesis 5:24 “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.”
Enoch is one of three people in the Word of God that was translated, or did die a physical death. We see here because he walked with God, God took him and he was not. We understand why as he warned the world against mixing with the fallen angels. Now let’s go back to the tower of Babel in which Nimrod, Ham’s grandson through his son Cush. So we know that Ham by his actions, went against God by lying with Noah’s wife, or his own mother, as in Genesis 9:21-25 by getting Noah drunk. Noah cursed Canaan, the offspring of this relation, not God, but we see that Ham rebels. Now let’s learn about what happened at the tower of Babel, Babel meaning confusion, in which Satan is behind all confusion and deception here:
Genesis 10:10 “And the beginning of the kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.”
This location, Calneh, was part of the group of the kingdom of Babel in which God destroyed the tower here:
Genesis 11:1 “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.”
Genesis 11:2 “And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.”
Genesis 11:3 “And they said one to another, “Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.”
Genesis 11:4 “And they said, “Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.”
Genesis 11:5 “And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.”
Genesis 11:6 “And the LORD said, “Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”
Genesis 11:7 “Go to, let Us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”
Genesis 11:8 “So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.”
Genesis 11:9 “Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”
Shinar (Strong’s 8152) Shinar; a plain in Babylon.
Babel (Strong’s 894) confusion; Babel; (from Strong’s 895) Babylon.
whole (Strong’s 854) nearness, near, with, by, among, and (from Strong’s 3605) the whole; hence all, any, every;
earth (Strong’s 776) to be firm; (the earth (at large, or sportively a land), common, country, nations, world.
name (Strong’s 8034) an appellation or act of calling by a name, or a geographical name, as a mark or memorial of individuality; by implication honor, authority, character, renown, report; (perhaps from Strong’s 7760 through idea of definite and conspicuous position) to put, commit, disguise, mark, name.
So we see here that Calneh, as we reading in Amos 6:2 was the beginning of the kingdom of Babel, or there were all united. At this time the whole earth, meaning the whole and the earth can mean earth or even land or country, were of the same language. The subject is the family and Noah and his offspring, not the sixth day creation of Genesis 1:26-31 that Cain took a wife from as in Genesis 4:16-17, from Nod, east of Eden. So Cain’s wife is not from Adam’s family, as Cain is the offspring of the serpent, as in Genesis 3:15 and Jesus tells us this in John 8:44. Cain has a separate geneology in Genesis Chapter 4 separate from Adam, as he is not of Adam. Then these people of Babel thought let us build a city or a tower for if God ever wanted to flood the earth again they could get to heaven. In other words, they are trying to build their own salvation. They wanted to make a name or a mark or memorial, and the base can even mean to disguise like a code name as they all spoke the same language. Then the LORD saw what they were up to, and change their language so this Nimrod which we read in Genesis 10:9-10 a mighty, or tyrant champion giant, hunter was the leader of these rebellious people of Adam that spoke one language. In other words, they knew God’s Word as they, the peoples of Adam. Then this Nimrod or any other of the fallen angels offspring would have had the information from the first earth age, as God had the flood on earth to destroy those fallen angels’ offspring of Genesis 6:1-5 as God’s plan of salvation was to bring that woman’s Seed, Jesus, as in Genesis 3:15 for man to have the opportunity of salvation by being born innocent of woman in the flesh. God then changed the language so they could not share this information that Nimrod the leader of this Babel could have had from the first earth age, as he was one of those mighty, or giant, hunters, or fallen angel offspring. The people then were scattered making it even more difficult for them to repeat their evil plans. God told us He would never have another whole world flood and would send a rainbow giving us His sign as in Genesis 9:12-13. As we know in Revelation 12:4 here:
Revelation 12:4 “And his tail drew the third part of stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.”
Revelation 12:5 “And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up into God, and to His throne.”
Satan drew one third of the stars, God’s people or the angels as in Revelation 1:20, and then cast them to earth to be born innocent in the flesh. Then the dragon, Satan as in Revelation 12:9, tried to devour her child, Jesus, the woman’s Seed of Genesis 3:15, right in the beginning in the Garden of Eden. Then we know through Adam’s line the man child, Jesus, did come and destroyed the power of death, or the devil, as in Hebrews 2:14, and Jesus sitting on the throne with God as in Psalms 110:1. Now we see that angels and humans can eat the same food as here:
Psalms 78:23 “Though He had commanded the clouds from above, And opened the doors of heaven,”
Psalms 78:24 “And had rained down manna upon them to eat, And had given them of the corn of heaven.”
Psalms 78:25 “Man did eat angels’ food: He sent them meat to the full.”
This was the people of Israel with Moses going through the wilderness when God lead them from Pharoah protecting them and covering them, God rained down manna, or angels’ food, the corn of heaven. This tells us that the same food would sustain an angelic body as well as man’s. Remember we are created in the exact image in the spiritual or celestial body as we have both a celestial and terrestrial body as here:
I Corinthians 15:40 “There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.”
I Corinthians 15:49 “And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.”
I Corinthians 15:50 “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”
I Corinthians 15:52 “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
I Corinthians 15:53 “For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
I Corinthians 15:54 “So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
We have an earthly body that we eat organic material and then when we pass on as in Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 our body goes back to the earth when we pass away. We have the celestial body as well that we put on and it is the same image as the earth body. The reason our body changes when we die is that flesh and blood cannot get into the kingdom of God, or heaven wherever God is, for judgment. Then we see a onetime occurrence. At the end of this earth age at Jesus’s return, Who comes right after Satan at the last trumpet of Revelation or Revelation 11:15, all flesh will change into spiritual bodies. So if you are living in the flesh and someone is telling you that Jesus is here, don’t believe them as this is antichrist, or instead of Christ in the Greek, or Satan. So all people whether they love God or not, we all go to Him for judgment for HE is the One and only Judge as in II Timothy 4:1:
II Timothy 4:1 “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, Who shall judge the quick and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom;”
So the Lord Jesus Christ will judge at His return, but those that have gone to Heavenly Father go directly to Him for His judgment. The point our flesh and spiritual bodies are identical as in Ezekiel 44 here:
Ezekiel 44:15 “But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of My sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come near to Me to minister unto Me, and they shall stand before Me to offer unto Me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord GOD:”
Ezekiel 44:16 “They shall enter into My sanctuary, and they shall come near to My table, to minister unto Me, and they shall keep My charge.”
Ezekiel 44:24 “And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to My judgments: and they shall keep My laws and My statutes in all Mine assemblies; and they shall hallow My sabbaths.”
Ezekiel 44:25 “And they shall come at no dead person to defile themselves: but for father, or for mother, or for son, or for daughter, for brother, or for sister that hath had no husband, they may defile themselves.”
Zadok (Strong’s 6659) just; (from Strong’s 6663) to be right (in a moral or forensic sense); cleanse, clear self, just, righteous.
These Zadok, or just, as they did not worship Satan in this earth age or in the first age, and listened to God’s Word. They are not special people as God is not a respecter of person as in Acts 10:34, but by their actions they are justified. They will take care of God’s holy things in His sanctuary and stand up in judgment based on God’s Word and the Sabbaths. Then why we came here, they can go to their family members that are dead, meaning spiritually, for this is in the thousand years as in Revelation Chapter 20, that will end up worshipping Satan in this age, but then have liable to die souls in the Lord’s Day, or the thousand day period after this one. Let’s go here and find out what happened when God created mankind:
Genesis 1:26 “And God said, “Let us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.”
Genesis 1:28 “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
Genesis 1:29 “And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
Genesis 2:1 “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.”
Genesis 2:2 “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.”
Genesis 2:7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”
created (Strong’s 1254) to create; (qualified) to cut down (a wood), select, feed (as formative process).
formed (Strong’s 3335) to mould into a form; especially a potter, figurative to determine (i.e. form a resolution); (probably identical to Strong’s 3334 through the squeezing into shape); to press, i.e. be narrow; figurative be in distress, be straightened (in straits).
man (Strong’s 120) ruddy, i.e. a human being (an individual or the species, mankind); (from Strong’s 119 to show blood (in the face), i.e. flush or turn rosy, to be dyed, made ruddy.
We were created as we were in the spiritual bodies. God says let us make in Our image, meaning as God and the angels. Remember Son of Man, Jesus, is included here so our flesh bodies look just like our spiritual. To create means to cut down as wood, that’s why so many times in the Word of God the word tree is used Genesis 2:16-17 is used for man. Man then has the intelligence over all life on the earth, the animals, insects, fish and so on. God created them all and it was very good. Then after the seventh day, the LORD God formed, meaning to shape into form as a clay pot, and the base means to straighten, this specific man of Genesis 2:7. Adam was the man that showed blood in his face or had a ruddy complexion. This man had a special purpose to bring forth that Seed, the woman’s seed, of Genesis 3:15, Christ to come to give all mankind the straight path to follow and have the opportunity for eternal life. Now back to the fallen angels, let’s go here in the Word and see here this offspring of the fallen angels and man was Goliath, of Gath also as we read in Amos 6:2. Let’s go here:
I Samuel 17:4 “And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.”
champion (Strong’s 1143) a double interval, i.e. the space between two armies; (Dual of Strong’s 996) a distinction or between.
Goliath (Strong’s 1555) exile; (perhaps from Strong’s 1540) to denude (especially in a disgraceful sense); by implication to exile (captives being usually stripped); to reveal; to uncover or reveal.
This giant or champion, Goliath, meaning exile or reveal or uncover. This giant from Gath, a Philistine city, meaning winepress. Just as Satan uncovered the truth leaving Adam and Eve not innocent in the Garden, the base is Goliath’s name. This offspring of the fallen angels as his height was (Six cubits (21 inches =cubit x 6 = 126 and a span= 10.5 inches –total height = 136.5 inches or 11.38 feet). He was not a normal human man, but mixed with the fallen angels. Also, we have a symbol here for Satan who will sit in God’s spot claiming to be God as in II Thessalonians 2:3-4 and Isaiah Chapter 14. We are to look to the Word of God for examples for our admonition or our warning as here:
I Corinthians 10:11 “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”
So just as this giant, this offspring of the fallen angels trying to destroy that woman’s Seed, Christ to come, as in Genesis 3:15, Satan will sit on God’s seat trying to be God and he will deceive the entire world. His number also is six, six and six, as here Goliath giving us an example for antichrist, or Satan, with the number six all over him as here:
Revelation 13:18 “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
count (Strong’s 5585) to use pebbles in enumeration or to count with; to compute; (from Strong’s 5586) a pebble (as worn smooth by handling), i.e. (by implication of use as a counter or ballot) a verdict (of acquittal) or ticket (of admission); a vote, stone, voice.
So this one world system Satan will come as God or Christ looking just like Him, he has the two horns of the lamb, but speaks as a dragon, as it is Satan. He will then make it so the financial system is under him. Those that have the mark of the beast, or his one world system, will be able to buy or sell. In other words, all people in the flesh on earth at this time will have to use Satan’s system as there will be no other government on earth for he is posing as king of kings and lord of lords. To have wisdom is to understand the number, first off, 666, six hundred threescore and six. This is referring to the sixth trumpet, sixth vial and sixth seal all when Satan appears, just as Christ will appear at the 7th trumpet, vial, and seal. The count, means a stone as used for counting is worn smooth over time, we can compute way back to the Garden of Eden, Satan who tried to destroy that woman’s Seed, Christ, as here:
Genesis 3:13 “And the LORD God said unto the woman, “What is this that thou hast done?” And the woman said, “The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.”
Genesis 3:14 “And the LORD God said unto the serpent, “Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:”
Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her Seed; It shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.”
beguiled (Strong’s 5377) to lead astray, i.e. (mentally) to delude, or (morally) to seduce, beguile, deceive, greatly, or utterly.
seed (Strong’s 2233) seed, figuratively fruit, plant, sowing-time, posterity, child, (from Strong’s 2232) to sow, to disseminate, plant, fructify, bear, conceive seed, set with, sow or yield.
Eve tells God that the serpent, Satan as in Revelation 12:9, beguiled, or seduced her, and then God gives His judgment that the devil will have the lowest degradation from a high ranking cherubim that was supposed to cover, or protect God’s throne as in Ezekiel 28. Then God puts that enmity or war between the woman’s Seed, Jesus, and the serpent’s seed, Cain, the devils child or offspring. Today we know the first part of the prophesy fulfilled when Jesus’s heel bruised by the sons of Cain, or Kenites, yelling crucify Him as in Mark 15:13. Then Satan’s head will perish after the Lord’s Day, or the thousand years end as in Revelation 20:10. Let’s go to Ezekiel 28 and learn about what happened in the first earth age to Satan, prince of Tyrus, as Tyre was that small rock nation next to Israel, the commerce center or world trade center. God uses this symbolism as this is how Satan deceived on third of God’s People as in Revelation 12:4 here:
Ezekiel 28:1 “The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,”
Ezekiel 28:2 “Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, ‘I am a GOD, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas;’ yet thou art a man, and not GOD. though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:”
Ezekiel 28:3 “Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:”
Ezekiel 28:4 “With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:”
Ezekiel 28:5 “By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:”
Ezekiel 28:6 “Therefore’ thus saith the Lord GOD; ‘Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;”
Ezekiel 28:7 “Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.”
Ezekiel 28:8 “They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas,”
Ezekiel 28:9 “Wilt thou yet say before Him That slayeth thee, “I am God?’ but thou shalt be a man, and no GOD, in the hand of Him That slayeth thee.”
Ezekiel 28:10 “Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken if, saith the Lord GOD,’”
Tyrus (Strong’s 6685) a fast; (from Strong’s 6684) to cover over (the mouth), i.e. to fast.
God is speaking to Satan here called the prince of Tyrus, or Tyre, meaning to fast or cover over the mouth. Satan is about lies and deception cover over God’s Word and the truth of His Word. Also Tyrus or Tyre at this time was the commerce center of the world. It was like New York City the world trade center and the geography is rocks right near Israel. So Satan then here God is reminding us was proud, or got full of himself, and thought he could be God and be in the middle of the seas, as in Revelation 17:15, are the people, and sit like he was God! Then God tells us that Satan is wiser than Daniel, and we know in Daniel 1:20 Daniel and his three companions, Shadrach, Meschech and Abed-nego, are ten times wiser than the religious people of king Nebuchadnezzar’s, king of Babylon’s, people. Just think we use maybe one tenth of our brain’s capacity in the flesh, so Daniel and these three having total recall of what happened before this earth age. Just a thought. Then Satan here even wiser than that and God says there is nothing that the people could hide from Satan because of this, as a serpent he studies his prey watching every move and how to get to us. Then because Satan thought he was God, God sentences him to be thrown down before foreigners, or not the nation of Israel, and brought down to the pit and in front of everyone. This is the most degrading type of death we will see why because of Satan’s role before his fall. Then God says, will you say that you are God when this happens? God responds no way because you are just a man, and NOT God, in God’s hand as in Revelation 20:10 when this happens. Then Satan, prince of Tyre or lies as God’s Word is covered over with lies by Satan, will die an uncircumcised, or unclean death, in front of the nations. Then we go on here to learn about what role Satan had here:
Ezekiel 28:12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, ‘Thus saith the Lord GOD; “Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty,”
Ezekiel 28:13 “Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou was created.”
Ezekiel 28:14 “Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.”
Ezekiel 28:15 “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.”
Ezekiel 28:16 “By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.”
Ezekiel 28:17 “Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.”
Ezekiel 28:18 “Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.”
Ezekiel 28:19 “All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.’’”
Again, God is saying sing this sad song, or lamentation, to Satan, king of Tyrus or Tyre this time. Now his role is elevated to king. God will Satan to test those that listened to Satan in the first earth age, the one third of God’s stars, or angels God’s people in the spiritual bodies as in Revelation 12:4. The Lord GOD made him the sum, the full pattern, full of wisdom and beautiful. His job was in the garden of God, right at God’s altar, covered with every precious stone, so a high ranking role of the anointed cherub that covered, or protected God’s throne. He was at God’s altar, the holy mountain of God. Satan was perfect in his ways when GOD created him, until sin was in him. Satan then wanted to have power and he got it through his traffic or commerce, giving people whatever they wanted as long as they worshipped him, as in Isaiah 14:13-14. Because of his perfection in God’s creation of him, Satan was very prideful and thought he could be God and played God. Then because of not worshipping God and worshipping himself and taking one third of God’s people as in Revelation 12:4, God sentences Satan. God will put a fire in the midst, or middle, of Satan, and then brought down to ashes before those that see him. In others words, he will perish and be no more, for ashes are nothing. This happens after the Lord’s Day, for remember one day is as one thousand as in II Peter 3:8, so after the one thousand years after this age ends, Satan will perish as in Revelation 20:10. God has to use Satan to correct His people in the flesh in the earth age, and then the majority that the number is as the sand of the sea, or many people, at the end of the thousand years as Revelation 20:7-9. So Satan is that son of perdition of II Thessalonians 2:3-4, as there is no other son by name in the word sentenced to perish, and the fallen angels of Jude 1:6 are not named, but will perish at Jesus’s return as Revelation 11:13. Let’s go on in Amos:
Amos 6:3 “Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near;”
Amos 6:4 “That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;”
Amos 6:5 “That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David;”
chant (Strong’s 6527) to scatter words, i.e. prate, chatter (or hum), chant
That evil day we know for us today when Satan will sit where he ought not in God’s spot as in II Thessalonians 2:3-4.
The people then right before they were taken captive by the king of Babylon, thought they had it made. They were living the high life, and rich in the world. They chant, or hum, in their worship, which is an abomination to God, which is nothing but babble or confusion. God is intelligent, His Word very straightforward. So any religion today that tells you to chant is not of God nor of His Word. Now let’s go on:
Amos 6:6 “That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.”
God had told them ahead of time the house of Judah and Jerusalem would be going into captivity under the king of Babylon as in Jeremiah:
Jeremiah 25:8 “Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; ‘Because ye have not heart My words,”
Jeremiah 25:9 “Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the LORD, and Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations.”
Jeremiah 25:10 “Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of the gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle.”
Jeremiah 25:12 “And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.”
God told them ahead of time, because you do not listen to My Word, you will go under King Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon for seventy years, His servant, telling us God is in control of even the enemy. The people still as in Amos 6:6 were playing religion, drank wine in bowls, and anointed themselves as if they would not go into captivity like Joseph, the house of Israel. This gives us an example for our generation of the fig tree of Mark 13:28, that our generation will not pass until all the events as in Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21 that Jesus told us ahead of time happen. We have this seventy year example, so today now our generation has been 64 years in place May, 2012. Let’s go here and see what the people were saying when God told them they would be held captive by Babylon here:
Jeremiah 6:11 “Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of the young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days.”
Jeremiah 6:12 “And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out My hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD.”
Jeremiah 6:13 “For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even the priest every one dealeth falsely.”
Jeremiah 6:14 “They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of My People slightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace;’ when there is no peace.”
The LORD full of fury because they would not listen to Him. All people, men and women and children, and elderly people. Their homes, lands and wives would be taken captive. All the prophets or teachers and the priests that dealt falsely that did not stick to God’s Word, and taught men’s traditions. These priests teaching the people, or the daughter symbolic of mother Israel, saying there would be peace, but we know in history today they were taken into captivity. Just like when Satan comes he will come in peaceably, as Jesus told us when you hear rumours of wars, the end is not yet:
Matthew 24:1 “And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and His disciples came to Him for to shew Him the buildings of the temple.”
Matthew 24:2 “And Jesus said unto them, “See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
Matthew 24:3 “And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when shall these things be and what shall be the sign of Thy coming and of the end of the world?”
Matthew 24:4 “And Jesus answered and said unto them, “Take heed that no man deceive you.”
Matthew 24:5 “For many shall come in My name, saying, ‘I am Christ;’ and shall deceive many.”
Matthew 24:6 “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”
Mathew 24:7 ‘For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”
world (Strong’s 165) properly an age; by extension perpetuity (also past); by implication the world; specifically (Jewish) A Messianic period (present or future);
pestilences (Strong’s 3061) a plague (literally the disease, or figuratively a pest); pestilence
The location is the mount of Olives at the temple in Jerusalem. Jesus tells them not one stone will be left at that temple at His return as in Zechariah 14:4 His feet will hit that temple, as II Thessalonians 2:3-4, Satan, the son of perdition, will sit on God’s seat claiming to be God! Then the subject is the return of Christ and the end of this world, the age, as world means the Messianic period, or an extension of perpetuity or time. The next age then, the Lord’s Day, the thousand years after Jesus returns to earth in which all flesh will change as I Corinthians 15:52 as flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God as it is another dimension. The first thing Jesus says do not let man deceived you. Many will come in His Name, meaning Christians, and one, Satan, will come claiming to be Christ. We know from I Corinthians 15:52 if you are in the flesh, Jesus is not here, for Satan must come before Jesus. Now Jesus teaches when you hear of wars and rumors of war, the end is not yet. The opposite of war is peace and that is how Satan will acquire his kingdom. Remember Satan is playing the lamb but speaks as a dragon, Satan as in Revelation 12:9, and this is in Revelation 13:11. Then we have been seeing wars going and famines, pestilences and earthquakes in divers, or places that never have earthquakes. Take a look around you today God is giving us so many signs. The point is Satan comes in peaceably just like those that thought they would not be going into captivity, the world will think Jesus has come, but it Satan disguised as an angel of light here:
II Corinthians 11:1 “Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.”
II Corinthians 11:2 “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.”
II Corinthians 11:3 “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”
II Corinthians 11:14 “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”
II Corinthians 11:15 “Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
beguiled (Strong’s 1818) to seduce wholly, beguile, deceive; (from Strong’s 1537) from, out, completion, and (from Strong’s 538) to cheat, i.e. delude or to mislead the mind or judgment of the mind, deceive.
transformed (Strong’s 3345) to transfigure or disguise; figuratively to apply (by accommodation); (from Strong’s 3326) accompaniment, amid, proximity, and from (derivative of Strong’s 4976) a figure, condition, external condition.
Just like Eve we know was wholly seduced by Satan and Cain was the serpent seed, as we just read in Genesis 3:15, we are to be a chaste spiritual virgin to Christ. Then it will be no marvel that when Satan comes before Christ, he will be transformed, meaning disguised, as an angel of light, along with the fallen angels that come as ministers of righteousness. Remember Satan will be playing Jesus, so possibly they’ll be calling themselves the disciples as we know there will be ten kings under him as here in:
Revelation 17:1 “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, “Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters.”
Revelation 17:2 “’With whom the kings of the earth, have committed fornication, and the inhabiters of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
Revelation 17:3 “So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”
Revelation 17:4 “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:”
Revelation 17:5 “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”
revelation (Strong’s 602 disclosure; appearing, coming, lighten, manifestation, be revealed, revelation; (from Strong’s 601) to take off the cover, i.e. disclose, reveal; (from Strong’s 575) off, away, separation, departure, cessation, completion reversal), and (from Strong’s 2525) to place down (permanently), i.e. to designate, constitute, convoy, appoint.
wilderness (Strong’s 2048) lonesome, waste, desert, desolate, solitary;
mystery (Strong’s 3466) a secret or “mystery” (to shut the mouth) (through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites).
Babylon (Strong’s 897) (literally or figuratively as a type of tyranny); (from Hebrew Strong’s 894) confusion; Babel (i.e. Babylon); (from Strong’s 1101) to overflow; to mix; to fodder, mingle;
We see then that this great whore, Babylon, or confusion, is the mother of all harlots, as this is the city, Jerusalem, that Satan will have his one world kingdom sitting on. The word mystery here means to initiate into religion through the idea of silence. Some churches and places of worship do this today so beware God’s Word is out in the open and there is nothing hidden. That’s why the Book of Revelation means to take off the cover or to reveal. So when someone teaches you don’t need to understand Revelation as you will be raptured or fly away, don’t believe them as God’s Word in Ezekiel 13:18-20 God is against those that teach His people to fly covering their outstretched arms for handfuls of barley, or for the money! Now let’s see who the ten horns are here God explaining to us so no room for error:
Revelation 17:12 “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.”
Revelation 17:13 “These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”
Revelation 17:14 “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”
Here we see that the ten kings that come down with Satan as well as the fallen angels of Revelation 12:7-9 at God’s command they are kicked out in our very near future, they are the ten horns. They have one mind and give their power to Satan, as they are under him. Now let’s finish it up here:
Amos 6:7 “Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed.”
Then God telling them again that they will go into captivity, just as today in our generation all flesh living at the time that Satan comes during that hour of temptation, but the elect, the seventy representing the 7000 of I Kings 19:18 those that withstood Satan in the first age as in Luke 10:17-20 Jesus tells them to rejoice as their names are written in heaven, meaning they have been judged by their previous actions, or have been judged. They have power over all enemies in Jesus’s Name as it is His ability, not our own, that is the authority as here:
Luke 10:17 “And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, “Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name.”
Luke 10:18 “And He said unto them, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.”
Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Luke 10:20 “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”
Luke 10:21 “In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, “I thank Thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in Thy sight.”
Again, the seventy representing the 7000 of Israel that did not bow a knee to Baal, or Satan, in the first earth age are judged as in Revelation 19:7-8 as they are referred to as Wife, not Bride, as they are married spiritually or judged. God can go into their lives as they have no free will, for this reason. Then we see as in Revelation 12:7-9 Satan falling from heaven as when at God’s command Michael and his angels kick out Satan onto earth for that short season, the five months as Revelation 9:5 here:
Revelation 12:7 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,”
Revelation 12:8 “And prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven.”
Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world, and his angels were cast out with him.”
We see some of Satan’s roles and names. When this takes in our very near future, Satan’s reign begins and remember we will be in flesh bodies at this time as we change at the last trumpet or Revelation 11:15 the seventh trumpet of Revelation when Jesus appears after Satan. Again, God is testing His children on earth to see if they will choose God or Satan. Have they read His Word of God with understanding or not. That’s it. Now let’s finish this here:
Amos 6:8 “The Lord GOD hath sworn by Himself, saith the LORD the God of Hosts, I abhor the excellency of Jacob, and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein.”
Amos 6:9 “And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.”
Amos 6:10 “And a man’s uncle shall take him up, and he that burneth him, to bring out the bones out of the house, and shall say unto him that is by the sides of the house, ‘Is there yet any with thee?’ and he shall say, ‘No.’ Then shall he say, ‘Hold thy tongue: for we may not mention of the name of the LORD.’”
The Lord GOD has sworn by Himself, so there is no higher oath, the LORD the God of Hosts, or Armies. Remember we are at war here and to put on the entire Word of God, as in Ephesians Chapter 6, so we are prepared when Satan comes deceiving the entire world and he will be successful as we know in Revelation 20:8. Then we see here God telling Jacob, or the natural seed of Israel, He hates their palaces as the people went away from God’s Word. They wanted a man king, instead of listening to the King of kings, and Lord of lords, and His Word. Then God shows that not one person will escape that captivity and it will be hard to even mention the Lord’s Name for remember they went under the rulership of King Nebuchadnezzar. We know in Daniel that Shadrach, Meschech and Abed-nego were delivered into the fiery furnace as they would not worship the king of Babylon, but the Son of God was right there with them and not one hair was singed or their clothing did not smell of smoke as in Daniel Chapter 3. This being an example for us when Satan the antichrist, or instead-of Christ, disguised as an angel of light, will deliver up God’s elect to those synagogues of Satan as in Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 and in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. Look at the world today here in the United States. We are laughed at or mocked if God’s Name is mentioned or His Word, especially in government when our country was founded on the Word of God! Now finishing here in:
Amos 6:11 “For, behold, the LORD commandeth, and He will smite the great house with breaches, and the little house with clefts.”
Amos 6:12 “Shall horses run upon the rock? Will one plow there with oxen? for ye have turned judgment into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into hemlock:”
Amos 6:13 “Ye which rejoice in a thing of nought, which say, ‘Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength?’”
Amos 6:14 “But, “behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith the LORD the God of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hemath unto the river of the wilderness.”
hemlock (Strong’s 3939) to curse; wormwood (regarded as poisonous, and therefore accursed.
Hemath (Strong’s 2574) walled; Chamath, a place in Syria; (from the same as Strong’s 2346) to join, a wall of protection
Then the LORD commands that all the religious houses will be affected. These false idol houses of worship did not listen to God’s Word, just as today so many so called churches that are so far away from God’s Word, their judgment is gall and righteousness is hemlock, meaning wormwood. Then God promises the house of Israel will have the nation, Babylon, taking them captive and starting in Hemath, a walled Syrian city. God showing them that they are not covered or protected, especially to us today spiritually. If our house of worship, where God’s Word is supposed to be taught, we are not protected if we stray from His Word, and will end up captive by the king of Babylon, Satan, who is the one behind all confusion, or Babel, the root of the word Babylon. Satan is that Wormwood as here:
Revelation 8:10 “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;”
Revelation 8:11 “And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”
wormwood (Strong’s 894) wormwood (as a type of bitterness, i.e. calamity, disaster)
All judgment and righteousness or what should be taught in God’s Word will turn to gall or wormwood. We see here that Satan that star, Lucifer, as in Isaiah Chapter 14:
Isaiah 14:12 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”
Lucifer (Strong’s 1966) the morning-star; Lucifer; (from Strong’s 1984 in sense of brightness) to be clear, to shine, to make a show, to boast, foolish; to rave; to celebrate; to stultify or irresponsible and of unsound mind)
Lucifer, which means morning star and the root to boast or rave will be playing Jesus. Satan will show off doing miracles and bringing lighting or fire from heaven as in Revelation 13:13. We know Jesus is the bright morning Star of Revelation 22:
Revelation 22:13 “I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
He is the Alpha and Omega, the first letter of the Greek alphabet and the Omega, or last letter of the Greek Alphabet. The New Testament written in the Greek language so translation to English I am the A to the Z in English. He is the Beginning as in:
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
It’s as simple as that. IF the Word is God, then why don’t we read about Him and find out what He is telling us! Then Jesus goes on:
Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates of the city.”
Revelation 22:15 “For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
Revelation 22:16 “I Jesus have sent Mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches, I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright and morning Star.”
Be blessed and know and do His commandments, meaning His Word. Those that teach otherwise are dogs, or enemies, or sorcerers, manmade religions, and murderers, as they are murderers of souls, not flesh. Then Jesus says I am the Root and the Offspring of David and the bright and morning Star. There is nobody as Him, and Satan is going to say and play that he is Jesus is God. Read God’s Word, do it and be saved. IF not you will end up spiritually in bed with Satan. Ask God for His help. He loves you for even thinking of trying and so do I! Keep in the Word!
Thank you dear God for your Word!
