To understand the context of what is written below, it is essential to read the previous parts of this series. — Natan
Why are Satan and his demons so murderously opposed to the saints of Elohim? This is, in part, because Elohim also refers to his people as el and elohim or mighty ones. Yeshua confirms this when quoting this scripture in John 10:34–35 as he applies the term elohim to YHVH’s own saints.
God [elohim] stands in the congregation of the mighty [el]; He judges among the gods [elohim]. How long will you judge unjustly, and show partiality to the wicked? Selah. Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; free them from the hand of the wicked. They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are unstable. I said, “You are gods [elohim], and all of you are children of the Most High. But you shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.” Arise, O God [elohim], judge the earth; for You shall inherit all nations. (Ps 82:1–8)
This is an amazing truth! YHVH Elohim who created man in his very own image (Gen 1:26) wants his redeemed saints to become like him as children of Elohim (1 John 3:1–3; John 1:12), although they will never be equal to him (Isa 43:10–11; 41:4; 44:6–8). This is an honor and a position that he will not hand out willy-nilly to anyone and everyone who self-identify as “saints.” At this point, we most soberly consider the words of Yeshua in Matt 7:21–23.
Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Before YHVH confers upon his saints the gift of immortality as sons of Elohim, he will first test and judge his people—his righteous elohim who are part of his congregation—(“judgement begins first at the house of Elohim”; 1 Pet 4:17) to determine their level of righteousness (“the righteous are scarcely saved”; 1 Pet 4:18) to determine if they are worthy of the honor of being called “the sons of Elohim.” In the days prior to the second coming, he will even send his saints strong delusion to determine how loyal they are to his truth (2 Thess 2:11–12). Many so-called saints who haven’t placed a high enough value on YHVH’s truth will fall away spiritually (2 Thess 2:3) becoming victims to the deluding and lying signs and wonders of the spirit of lawlessness (or Torahlessness) of the satanic end times Man of Sin (2 Thess 2:5–10).
Elohim will use the idol-gods/elohim in the heart and minds of his people to rise up in judgment against his saints. That which they fear other than Elohim will be their testing point (Isa 66:4 cp. Jer 5:19 and 2 Thess 2:11, 2–12 for context). Will they fear, obey and trust Elohim and fear their idols more?
In the mean time, YHVH Elohim is currently knocking on the door of the house of the saints both collectively and individually to awake them out of their spiritual slumber in an effort to incite them to repent of their lukewarmness (Rev 3:20 and verses 14–21 for context). Those who refuse to awaken from their spiritual lethargy he will spank with the spiritual paddle of the demon-gods, false elohim through persecution and tribulation of the saints. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken (Heb 12:25–29). The Bible refers to this as the Great Tribulation (Matt 24:21; Rev 7:14 cp. 2:22). Many of these sleeping saints will repent and be spiritually refined and brought back to him “out of [the] great tribulation” of the last days (Rev 7:13–14).
As YHVH Elohim used the demon gods or elohim, evil Baal spirits of ancient Babylon in the past to punish his people for their spiritual lassitude and declension, he will use the demonic entities of Mystery Babylon the Great to do the same in the last days as a giant paddle applied to the collective posteriors of his lukewarm and backslidden saints. He will then brake the paddle of Babylon over his knee and destroy that antichrist system (Rev 18:2, 21), even as he raised up and then destroyed ancient Babylon in the past.
Even now, the evil spirits or demon-elohim are being loosed on this earth in these last days to bring about an antichrist world system and to torment and persecute YHVH’s saints who oppose this system and who will be the righteous elohim to replace the demonic and rebellious elohim.
We see the manifestation of these false demon elohim being loosed on the earth and manifested clearly in front of our eyes in the following areas:
- Antichrist spirit: Islam (a demonic spirit predicated on killing, stealing, destroying, lying and sexual perversion).
- Spirit of Torahlessness in the mainstream church and throughout our society.
- Deluding spirits of Bible teachers who are taking our focus off centrality of gospel message as Yeshua commanded his disciples to preach and as apostles carried forth.
- Spirit of anger among people in general.
- Spirit of sexual perversions—especially being foisted upon our young people.
- Spirit of pharmakeia (drugs) being mainstreamed and encouraged behind the scenes by big government to enslave the masses and turn them into easily controlled zombies and idiots, doped up an addicted druggies (through both prescription and illegal drugs), and vaccines and chemical additives to foods that poison and weaken people by turning healthy people into sickly people (e.g. vaccines, food additives, GMOs, geo-engineering or aerosol spraying, etc.)
- The blurring of lines between the genders, so that men are acting like and taking on the appearance and lifestyles of women and vice versa.
- The mindless addiction of many people to entertainment such as sports, video games, movies and music and all the ungodly filth that comes through these vehicles.
- The rise in the proliferation of witchcraft and satanism and eastern religious ideas lacing movies, music, education, entertainment.
- Pornography which is easily accessible and destroys lives, marriages and families.
- The sexualization of young children including imposing the perversions of homosexuality and transgenderism upon them through the influences of the education system and entertainment e.g. the film industry, YouTube, social media, contemporary music).
- The rise in global terrorism.
- The rise in big brother statism its control over the populace.
- The rice of the police state and government surveillance.
- The loss of privacy.
- The interconnectedness of big business and government elites to control the masses and to create a world wide Luciferian-oriented spiderweb over everyone in an effort to social engineer people toward their demonic vision of utopia on earth.
- And the list goes on and on as to Satan is tightening his evil noose around the collective neck of humanity.
What can the saints do in response to this tidal wave of evil that is sweeping across the planet and engulfing everything, or descending that is descending upon the earth like a giant, sticky spider web?
