The DAY I knew ISRAEL was going to be in TROUBLE

 

Judges 21:25

King James Version

25 In those days there was no king in Israel: 

every man did that which was right in his own eyes.


I used to love reading about world events when I was in high school.

But for the longest time, nothing makes sense in the world anymore.

It's been war, and more war.

It's been greed, and more greed.

It's been vanity, and more vanity.

It's been deception, and more deception.

So, I didn't follow world events too closely after that.

You can imagine my great surprise when alarm bells rang loudly in my heart.

I was alerted to Israel's troubles about seven months ago.

PARTICULARLY when her fighter pilots refused to train.

And all I could say was, "Oh boy...there goes Israel's air defense".

She'll be a sitting duck.

They're leaving themselves wide open.

Uh-oh.

Then more infighting in the Knesset and high courts.

All that infighting weakened this strong country.

After these last two days' horrific events in southern Israel, I could only turn back to those observations of mine seven months ago.

That's why I wrote a series of March 2023 articles on it.

Trouble at "home" will invite trouble from outside your home.

The principle remains the same.

In any home.

In any country.

In any community.

In any individual.

Those who don't love you bide their time.

Looking for chinks in your armor.

Then they zero in.


But GOD loves Israel.

She is the "apple of His eye".

Her future has been prophesied.

But she must wake up to the LORD.

And be saved, from everything.

And everyone.

Including herself.

The CHRISTIAN's battle

 

Matthew 5:8

King James Version

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: 

for they shall see God.


Is it easy being born again?

What challenges us the most?

It's always been about one thing.

The battle a true Christian faces.

The battle against hypocrisy.

PERFECTION is the path.

Hypocrisy has no place in it.

That's the stumblingblock we face.

We can get so easily tripped by the enemy.

Especially if he detects pride in us.

Still, we must be blameless before the LORD.

Philippians 2:15

King James Version

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, 

the sons of God, 

without rebuke, 

in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, 

among whom ye shine as lights in the world;


For the enemy waits in ambush.

1 Peter 5:8-9

King James Version

8 Be sober, 

be vigilant; 

because your adversary the devil, 

as a roaring lion, 

walketh about, 

seeking whom he may devour:

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, 

knowing that the same afflictions 

are accomplished in your brethren

 that are in the world.


Constantly condemning us before GOD.

Revelation 12:10

King James Version

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, 

Now is come salvation, 

and strength, 

and the kingdom of our God, 

and the power of his Christ: 

for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, 

which accused them before our God 

day and night.


Slyly setting traps for us.

Genesis 3:1

King James Version

3 Now the serpent was more subtil 

than any beast of the field 

which the Lord God had made. 

And he said unto the woman, 

Yea, hath God said, 

Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?


But we have JESUS.

John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation: 

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.


Perfection is possible.

Matthew 19:26

King James Version

26 But Jesus beheld them, 

and said unto them, 

With men this is impossible; 

but with God all things are possible.


For it is the LORD's command.

Matthew 5:48

King James Version

48 Be ye therefore perfect, 

even as your Father which is in heaven 

is perfect.


And because believers are "sons of God".

John 1:12

King James Version

12 But as many as received him, 

to them gave he power to become the sons of God, 

even to them that believe on his name:


And "children of light".

1 Thessalonians 5:5-6

King James Version

5 Ye are all the children of light, 

and the children of the day: 

we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; 

but let us watch and be sober.


GOD has given His children many gifts.

2 Timothy 1:7

King James Version

7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; 

but of power, 

and of love, 

and of a sound mind.


We can be perfect.

Through the GRACE of GOD.

Through the TEACHINGS of JESUS.

Through the GUIDANCE of the HOLY SPIRIT.


Holiness is perfection.

Because it has no hypocrisy.

That's the mark of a true born again.

The true believer in CHRIST.

Who lives by His WORD.

Where evil CANNOT roost

 

1 Chronicles 29:11

King James Version

11 Thine, O Lord is the greatness, and the power, 

and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: 

for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; 

thine is the kingdom, O Lord, 

and thou art exalted as head above all.


It has become a fearful world.

Many don't know who to trust.

Many don't know what to believe in.

But born agains do.

We know Who to trust.

JESUS, and JESUS alone.


He is LIGHT.

John 8:12

King James Version

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, 

saying, 

I am the light of the world: 

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, 

but shall have the light of life.


He is LOVE.

1 John 4:7-10

King James Version

7 Beloved, let us love one another: 

for love is of God; 

and every one that loveth is born of God, 

and knoweth God.

8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; 

for God is love.

9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, 

because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, 

that we might live through him.

10 Herein is love, 

not that we loved God, 

but that he loved us, 

and sent his Son 

to be the propitiation for our sins.


He is LIFE.

John 11:25-26

King James Version

25 Jesus said unto her, 

I am the resurrection, 

and the life: 

he that believeth in me, 

though he were dead, yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me 

shall never die. 

Believest thou this?


In contrast, the enemy is darkness, hatred, and death.

The EXACT opposite of Who JESUS Is.

So, if you don't want evil to have a place in you, pray to be born again.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


That SPIRIT may teach you the ways of JESUS.

John 14:26

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.


John 15:26

King James Version

26 But when the Comforter is come, 

whom I will send unto you from the Father, 

even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, 

he shall testify of me:


John 16:13-14

King James Version

13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, 

he will guide you into all truth: 

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me: 

for he shall receive of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.


Is it any wonder devils flee from the LORD's presence?

James 2:19

King James Version

19 Thou believest that there is one God; 

thou doest well: 

the devils also believe, 

and tremble.


You know what you have to do:

James 4:7

King James Version

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. 

Resist the devil, 

and he will flee from you.

Satan as SORCERER

 

Revelation 12:9

King James Version

9 And the great dragon was cast out, 

that old serpent, 

called the Devil, and Satan, 

which deceiveth the whole world: 

he was cast out into the earth, 

and his angels were cast out with him.


Of course, he'll balk at the idea.

"Me, a sorcerer?"

"I'm more than that!"

For his pride is great.

Still, he's a sorcerer.

It's been said, a sorcerer doesn't destroy you.

He lets you destroy yourself.

Tantamount to saying, "you won't even know what hit you".

Isn't Satan that way?

Crafty, cunning, cruel?

Manipulating us constantly?

Towards our own destruction?

Tempting us non-stop?

Playing with our minds.

Toying with our emotions?

Fueling our desires?

Pitting one person against another?

Beware the fallen one.

JESUS differentiated His followers, from those who are not:

John 8:42-45

King James Version

42 Jesus said unto them, 

If God were your Father, ye would love me: 

for I proceeded forth and came from God; 

neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

43 Why do ye not understand my speech? 

even because ye cannot hear my word.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, 

and the lusts of your father ye will do. 

He was a murderer from the beginning, 

and abode not in the truth, 

because there is no truth in him. 

When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: 

for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, 

ye believe me not.


Scripture has much to say about this sorcerer, and soul-destroyer:

Isaiah 14:12-14

King James Version

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!

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, 

I will ascend into heaven, 

I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: 

I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, 

in the sides of the north:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; 

I will be like the most High.


Notice the ego:

I will ascend into heaven, 

I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: 

I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, 

in the sides of the north:

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; 

I will be like the most High.


His future?

Isaiah 14:15

King James Version

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, 

to the sides of the pit.


Look how the Bible describes this cherub:

Ezekiel 28:12

King James Version

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

King James Version

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 wast created.


Ezekiel 28:14

King James Version

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 28:15-16

King James Version

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways 

from the day that thou wast created, 

till iniquity was found in thee.

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

King James Version

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 28:18-19

King James Version

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.

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.


Guard against the deceiver:

2 Corinthians 4:4

King James Version

4 In whom the god of this world 

hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, 

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, 

who is the image of God, 

should shine unto them.


2 Corinthians 11:14

King James Version

14 And no marvel; 

for Satan himself is transformed 

into an angel of light.


Ephesians 2:2-3

King James Version

2 Wherein in time past ye walked 

according to the course of this world, 

according to the prince of the power of the air, 

the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation 

in times past in the lusts of our flesh, 

fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; 

and were by nature the children of wrath, 

even as others.


Ephesians 6:11-12

King James Version

11 Put on the whole armour of God, 

that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, 

against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness in high places.


1 Peter 5:8

King James Version

8 Be sober, 

be vigilant; 

because your adversary the devil, 

as a roaring lion, walketh about, 

seeking whom he may devour:


Revelation 12:12

King James Version

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, 

and ye that dwell in them. 

Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! 

for the devil is come down unto you, 

having great wrath, 

because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.


Put on the FULL armor of GOD.

GUARD against the crafty one.

We are at war with the fallen ones.

Spirit of DEMONS

 

The LORD JESUS prophesied:

Mark 13:22

King James Version

22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, 

and shall shew signs and wonders, 

to seduce, 

if it were possible, 

even the elect.


What ails humanity?

Why do we do what we do?

Why are there wars, crime, greed, vanity, envy?

Surely, we have the spirit of demons in us.

It is spiritual warfare, after all.

We battle with the "unseen".

The unseen uses the "seen" -- humans.

These verses tell us how the world is:

2 Timothy 3:1-7

King James Version

3 This know also, 

that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, 

covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, 

disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, 

false accusers, incontinent, fierce, 

despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, 

lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, 

but denying the power thereof: 

from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, 

and lead captive silly women laden with sins, 

led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, 

and never able to come 

to the knowledge of the truth.


If we don't believe there are demons, or spirit of demons influencing us, let Scripture tell us:

Leviticus 19:31

King James Version

31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, 

neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: 

I am the Lord your God.


Leviticus 20:6-7

King James Version

6 And the soul that turneth 

after such as have familiar spirits, 

and after wizards, 

to go a whoring after them, 

I will even set my face against that soul, 

and will cut him off from among his people.

7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, 

and be ye holy: 

for I am the Lord your God.


Deuteronomy 18:9-14

King James Version

9 When thou art come into the land 

which the Lord thy God giveth thee, 

thou shalt not learn to do 

after the abominations of those nations.

10 There shall not be found among you any one 

that maketh his son or his daughter 

to pass through the fire, 

or that useth divination, 

or an observer of times, 

or an enchanter, 

or a witch.

11 Or a charmer, 

or a consulter with familiar spirits, 

or a wizard, 

or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things 

are an abomination unto the Lord: 

and because of these abominations 

the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

14 For these nations, 

which thou shalt possess,

hearkened unto observers of times, 

and unto diviners: 

but as for thee, 

the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.


Ezekiel 13:17-18

King James Version

17 Likewise, thou son of man, 

set thy face against the daughters of thy people, 

which prophesy out of their own heart; 

and prophesy thou against them,

18 And say, 

Thus saith the Lord God; 

Woe to the women that sew pillows to all armholes, 

and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature 

to hunt souls! 

Will ye hunt the souls of my people, 

and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?


Matthew 8:28-34

King James Version

28 And when he was come to the other side 

into the country of the Gergesenes, 

there met him two possessed with devils, 

coming out of the tombs, 

exceeding fierce, 

so that no man might pass by that way.

29 And, behold, 

they cried out, saying, 

What have we to do with thee, Jesus, 

thou Son of God? 

art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

30 And there was a good way off from them 

an herd of many swine feeding.

31 So the devils besought him, saying, 

If thou cast us out, 

suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.

32 And he said unto them, 

Go. 

And when they were come out, 

they went into the herd of swine: 

and, behold, 

the whole herd of swine ran violently down 

a steep place into the sea, 

and perished in the waters.

33 And they that kept them fled, 

and went their ways into the city, 

and told every thing, 

and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils.

34 And, behold, 

the whole city came out to meet Jesus: 

and when they saw him, 

they besought him that he would depart 

out of their coasts.


Matthew 12:43-45

King James Version

43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man,

he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, 

and findeth none.

44 Then he saith, 

I will return into my house from whence I came out; 

and when he is come, 

he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

45 Then goeth he, 

and taketh with himself seven other spirits 

more wicked than himself, 

and they enter in and dwell there: 

and the last state of that man is worse than the first. 

Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.


Matthew 16:21-23

King James Version

21 From that time forth began Jesus 

to shew unto his disciples, 

how that he must go unto Jerusalem, 

and suffer many things 

of the elders and chief priests and scribes, 

and be killed, 

and be raised again the third day.

22 Then Peter took him, 

and began to rebuke him, saying, 

Be it far from thee, Lord: 

this shall not be unto thee.

23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, 

Get thee behind me, Satan: 

thou art an offence unto me: 

for thou savourest not the things that be of God, 

but those that be of men.


Luke 13:11-13

King James Version

11 And, behold, there was a woman 

which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years,

and was bowed together, 

and could in no wise lift up herself.

12 And when Jesus saw her, 

he called her to him, and said unto her, 

Woman, 

thou art loosed from thine infirmity.

13 And he laid his hands on her: 

and immediately she was made straight, 

and glorified God.


John 5:1-15

King James Version

5 After this there was a feast of the Jews; 

and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, 

which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, 

having five porches.

3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, 

of blind, halt, withered, 

waiting for the moving of the water.

4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, 

and troubled the water: 

whosoever then first 

after the troubling of the water stepped in 

was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

5 And a certain man was there, 

which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lie, 

and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, 

he saith unto him, 

Wilt thou be made whole?

7 The impotent man answered him, 

Sir, I have no man, 

when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: 

but while I am coming, 

another steppeth down before me.

8 Jesus saith unto him, 

Rise, 

take up thy bed, 

and walk.

9 And immediately the man was made whole, 

and took up his bed, 

and walked: 

and on the same day was the sabbath.

10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured, 

It is the sabbath day: 

it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.

11 He answered them, 

He that made me whole, 

the same said unto me, 

Take up thy bed, and walk.

12 Then asked they him, 

What man is that which said unto thee, 

Take up thy bed, and walk?

13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: 

for Jesus had conveyed himself away,

 a multitude being in that place.

14 Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple,

 and said unto him, 

Behold, 

thou art made whole: 

sin no more, 

lest a worse thing come unto thee.

15 The man departed, 

and told the Jews that it was Jesus, 

which had made him whole.


John 8:44-45

King James Version

44 Ye are of your father the devil, 

and the lusts of your father ye will do. 

He was a murderer from the beginning, 

and abode not in the truth, 

because there is no truth in him. 

When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: 

for he is a liar, and the father of it.

45 And because I tell you the truth, 

ye believe me not.


John 10:10

King James Version

10 The thief cometh not, 

but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: 

I am come that they might have life, 

and that they might have it more abundantly.


Acts 8:5-8

King James Version

5 Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, 

and preached Christ unto them.

6 And the people with one accord 

gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, 

hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.

7 For unclean spirits,

crying with loud voice, 

came out of many that were possessed with them: 

and many taken with palsies, 

and that were lame, 

were healed.

8 And there was great joy in that city.


Acts 8:9-13

King James Version

9 But there was a certain man, 

called Simon, 

which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, 

and bewitched the people of Samaria, 

giving out that himself was some great one:

10 To whom they all gave heed, 

from the least to the greatest, saying, 

This man is the great power of God.

11 And to him they had regard, 

because that of long time 

he had bewitched them with sorceries.

12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things 

concerning the kingdom of God, 

and the name of Jesus Christ, 

they were baptized, 

both men and women.

13 Then Simon himself believed also: 

and when he was baptized, 

he continued with Philip, 

and wondered, 

beholding the miracles and signs 

which were done.


Acts 19:11-20

King James Version

11 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:

12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick 

handkerchiefs or aprons, 

and the diseases departed from them, 

and the evil spirits went out of them.

13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, 

exorcists, 

took upon them to call over them 

which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, 

saying, 

We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, 

a Jew, 

and chief of the priests, which did so.

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, 

Jesus I know, 

and Paul I know; 

but who are ye?

16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was 

leaped on them, 

and overcame them, 

and prevailed against them, 

so that they fled out of that house 

naked and wounded.

17 And this was known to all 

the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus;

and fear fell on them all, 

and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.

18 And many that believed came, 

and confessed, 

and shewed their deeds.

19 Many of them also which used curious arts 

brought their books together, 

and burned them before all men: 

and they counted the price of them, 

and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.

20 So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.


2 Corinthians 6:14-18

King James Version

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: 

for what fellowship hath righteousness 

with unrighteousness? 

and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial?

 or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

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.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, 

and be ye separate, saith the Lord, 

and touch not the unclean thing; 

and I will receive you.

18 And will be a Father unto you, 

and ye shall be my sons and daughters, 

saith the Lord Almighty.


2 Corinthians 11:13-15

King James Version

13 For such are false apostles, 

deceitful workers, 

transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

14 And no marvel; 

for Satan himself is transformed 

into an angel of light.

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.


Ephesians 2:1-3

King James Version

2 And you hath he quickened, 

who were dead in trespasses and sins;

2 Wherein in time past ye walked 

according to the course of this world, 

according to the prince of the power of the air, 

the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation 

in times past in the lusts of our flesh, 

fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; 

and were by nature the children of wrath, 

even as others.


Ephesians 5:1-8

King James Version

5 Be ye therefore followers of God, 

as dear children;

2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, 

and hath given himself for us an offering

 and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

3 But fornication, 

and all uncleanness, 

or covetousness, 

let it not be once named among you, 

as becometh saints;

4 Neither filthiness, 

nor foolish talking, 

nor jesting, 

which are not convenient: 

but rather giving of thanks.

5 For this ye know, 

that no whoremonger, 

nor unclean person, 

nor covetous man, who is an idolater, 

hath any inheritance 

in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: 

for because of these things cometh the wrath of God 

upon the children of disobedience.

7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, 

but now are ye light in the Lord: 

walk as children of light:


2 Thessalonians 2:6-12

King James Version

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.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, 

that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned 

who believed not the truth, 

but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


1 Timothy 4:1-3

King James Version

4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, 

that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, 

giving heed to seducing spirits, 

and doctrines of devils;

2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; 

having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

3 Forbidding to marry, 

and commanding to abstain from meats, 

which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving 

of them which believe and know the truth.


1 Peter 5:8-9

King James Version

8 Be sober, 

be vigilant; 

because your adversary the devil, 

as a roaring lion, 

walketh about, 

seeking whom he may devour:

9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, 

knowing that the same afflictions 

are accomplished in your brethren 

that are in the world.


1 John 4:1-6

King James Version

4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, 

but try the spirits whether they are of God: 

because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: 

Every spirit that confesseth 

that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3 And every spirit that confesseth not 

that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: 

and this is that spirit of antichrist, 

whereof ye have heard that it should come; 

and even now already is it in the world.

4 Ye are of God, little children, 

and have overcome them: 

because greater is he that is in you, 

than he that is in the world.

5 They are of the world: 

therefore speak they of the world, 

and the world heareth them.

6 We are of God: 

he that knoweth God heareth us; 

he that is not of God heareth not us. 

Hereby know we the spirit of truth, 

and the spirit of error.


Revelation 16:12-14

King James Version

12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial 

upon the great river Euphrates; 

and the water thereof was dried up, 

that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs 

come out of the mouth of the dragon, 

and out of the mouth of the beast, 

and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

14 For they are the spirits of devils, 

working miracles, 

which go forth unto the kings of the earth 

and of the whole world, 

to gather them to the battle 

of that great day of God Almighty.


Revelation 18:1-5

King James Version

18 And after these things 

I saw another angel come down from heaven, 

having great power; 

and the earth was lightened with his glory.

2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, 

saying, 

Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, 

and is become the habitation of devils, 

and the hold of every foul spirit, 

and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

3 For all nations have drunk 

of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, 

and the kings of the earth 

have committed fornication with her, 

and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich 

through the abundance of her delicacies.

4 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.


Revelation 22:14-15

King James Version

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, 

that they may have right to the tree of life, 

and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, 

and sorcerers, 

and whoremongers, 

and murderers, 

and idolaters, 

and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
