The Enemy’s Plan from the Beginning has always been: to steal, kill and destroy God’s Children, God’s Family, and their inheritance.
Thankfully, God also has always had a plan. A perfect plan, to bless those would bless His Children and to curse those who would curse His children. In this way people naturally filtered themselves into one of the two the channels that they truly wanted to flow in (Blessings, or Curses). All the while God’s Teaching model would spread across the earth and become available across the nations. That men and women in every nation would be able to confirm and personally testify to the Word of God bringing blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I came that they may have life,
and have it abundantly.”
John 10:10 (NASB)
Many Lies Exist.
Where do ALL Lies Come From? What Purpose do they serve?
ALL Core Lies are Directed
and Designed to Harm:
1) Our relationship with God
2) Our relationships with One Another.
It’s been that way since the very beginning.
Genesis 3:1-5; 4:1-14, 19-24
In the first appearance of The Enemy in God’s Word, in Genesis 3, we see the devil’s power of deception, temptation, division, and destruction happening in full swing. The first attack is upon man’s relationship with God. In this attack the purpose was to steal the inheritance of God to Adam, away from Adam. Adam and Eve, like Esau later, sold their eternal birthright for a bribe of just one bite of the forbidden fruit. In one swift more, the whole of mankind became servants of Satan rather than servants of God.
How do I know this?
Because it is clearly defined in the Word of God. We become slaves to the one we obey, either slaves to righteousness, resulting in Eternal Life, or slaves to unrighteousness, or sin, resulting in eternal damnation. That is the Number One most important choice we have to make in this life. Nothing is more important than that. And, Yes. This entire website is designed and written with this goal in mind. That you and everyone you know and meet will have a clear understanding of this most important choice and will make that choice with all the wisdom and discernment they can muster based on the evidence they have to make such a monumental choice.
John 8:34-35 (NIV)
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.
Murder, First Time:
In the Second Appearance, in Genesis 4, we see Satan executing his power of deception to bring about the first, and the second, man on man murder. This attack keep these men from loving their eternal brothers. Due to the lies of Satan these men’s hearts and minds became corrupted and defiled and vacant of the Truth, that they were all brothers with one Eternal Father.
No. These men wanted kingdom’s and lands, and cows, and stuff for themselves. Sharing? Giving? Serving? That was for weaklings, and fools not strong enough, nor wise, nor cunning enough to plan to Steal, Kill, and Destroy.
Satan found two weak links in the Family of God: ADAM’S first generation son, Cain, and Lamech, Cain’s fifth generation son. Satan capitalized his opportunity to turn Cain, one disgruntled, discouraged, disconnected, disappointed false worshipper into a tool for the Kingdom of Darkness.
Satan pointed his evil hearted fool and tool, Cain, towards his enemy target of goodness, kindness, wisdom, contentment, and obedience in Worship of YHWH, a forever enemy of the Darkness that would do much damage to Satan’s Plans to infect the world with his particular virus of hatred and rebellion to God.
Of course we know the outcome, Cain finished the job by killing his own brother for absolutely no wrong done by Abel to his brother Cain (do you see a prophetic pattern emerging?), but only because of the Spirit of Jealousy, Envy, Hatred, Rejection, Malice, and Homocide that attacked Cain on a daily basis and wouldn’t let him go, until Cain fully obeyed his evil masters’ will–the murder of Adam’s Holy Son, the Pure brother, the Righteous faithful worshipper of YHWH, who offers an acceptable sacrifice unto YHWH, and was accepted by YHWH (while Cain was rejected for offering an unacceptable offering–which was the cause and impetus for spirit of envy and lies and demonic anger and hatred to be able to grab a hold of Cain) the brother of kindness and Truth, Abel–who is obviously a type of Christ, and the very first martyr in the History of Mankind, and is mentioned by Yeshua, for the blood of Abel’s testimony speaks loudly, even today.
Matthew 23:35-36 (NIV) 35 And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36 Truly I tell you, all this will come on this generation.
Here the blood of Abel is even being compared to the blood of Jesus:
Hebrews 12:23-24 (NIV) You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.
Have there been other martyrs? You bet. In every generation. This is an observable, reliable, predictable, repeatable pattern that continues to fulfill and confirm the Word of God in every generation, even to this very day.
My Friend: If you are looking for dominant 100% verifiable facts and patterns that the Word of God to prove it as True Today, as it has been in every generation, you don’t have to look far.
Does this pattern and prophecy picture firmly verify and confirm the Word of God? Yes it does!
Murder, Second Time:
Then in Genesis, Satan strikes a third time:
Lamech: a man who murder’s his neighbor for wounding him in a fight. And the sin of murder and violence and retribution continues to grow, and multiply, unchecked even until the Days of Noah, to the point that God was sorry that He had made man on the earth. Thankfully for us, Noah found favor in God’s sight, and made a way of Salvation through the Cleansing of the Sins of the World through the washing of water upon the whole face of the planet.
And as we know now, this is just a small taste, or foreshadowing of the Judgement to Come, that will not be with water this second time, but will be with fire. And we have already had a tiny preview of the event where today resides the lowest place on the surface of the earth, approximately 1,400 feet below sea level, The Current Dead Sea, used to be one of the most fertile and green verdant valleys on the Earth–where Sodom and Gomorrah once resided, but no more having been consumed by the fire and brimstone of the LORD–YHWH.
Satan has not deviated from His plan to steal, kill, and destroy from the very beginning. And you can quickly verify this reality by doing a quick survey of history in every century from the very beginning, they have always been wars and rumors of wars, even when there was plenty of land, plenty of resources and plenty of water and food for all to live happy, fulfilled, and contented lives, if only the spirit of lying was not received by the people who lived on the earth.
This same demonic pattern has been active and present in every murder since the very first one committed by Cain.
Murder in Abundance, and then Destruction:
Genesis 6:5-8 (NIV)
5 The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the LORD said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them. ” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
In short this is the very plan of Satan for everyone of God’s children, that we would either become a victim of murder, or a perpetrator of murder. Or that we would become so wicked and evil that God Himself would step in a pass the judgement of death and destruction due to the uncontrollable, irredeemable level of wickedness and malice infecting the hearts of men.
Yes. Yes. I know God is patient. God is Kind, and His Merciful, but He is also Just! And there comes a time when even God says: “Enough is Enough!”
God confronted the Whole World in Noah’s Day and said, “Enough!”
God confronted Sodom and Gomorrah in Abraham’s Day and said, “Enough!”
God is going to confront the Whole World again in the Day of His Two Witnesses, and then after 1000 year reign in the Valley of Armageddon. God is going to say twice more, “Enough!”
And this the Evil will be completely over. It will be judged and condemned as it should be.
All those who voted for Satan and his dark world will be cast into Satan’s Lake.
All those who voted and followed after God with all their hearts, all the soul, all their mind, and loved God with all their strength will be invited into God intimate HOME, FAMILY, KINGDOM, forever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever, and ever!
Genesis 4:17-24 (NIV) 17 Cain 1) made love to his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch. Cain was then building a city, and he named it after his son 2) Enoch. 18 To Enoch was born Irad, and 3 Irad was the father of Mehujael, and 4) Mehujael was the father of Methushael, and Methushael was the father of 5) Lamech.
19 Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah. 20 Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents and raise livestock. 21 His brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play stringed instruments and pipes. 22 Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged all kinds of tools out of bronze and iron. Tubal-Cain’s sister was Naamah.
23 Lamech said to his wives,
“Adah and Zillah, listen to me;
wives of Lamech, hear my words.
I have killed a man for wounding me,
a young man for injuring me.
24 If Cain is avenged seven times,
then Lamech seventy-seven times. ”
