Last Days, part 6: Can Demons Manifest Physically? - Pastor David




.



The transformation of Angels into our physical dimension is apparently so common that the Holy Spirit says through the writer of the Book of Hebrews, "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares"
Hebrews 13:2. However, can demons also manifest or transform themsleves into our physical dimension?

Last Days, part 5: Satan's Allowed Latitude - Pastor David

Since Satan is the ruler of this World, God allows him a certain degree of latitude of action which most Christians do not fully appreciate. NON-believers of Christ are taken captive by the devil AT HIS WILL. 2 Timothy 2:26. Please watch this very important video message

Last Days, Part 4: The sons of God - Pastor David




.



Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
Job 1:6-7.

"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 6:2.

"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 1:6.

"For if God spared not the ANGELS that sinned, but cast them down to hell (Tartarus), and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly."
2 Peter 2:4-5

"But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
Matthew 24:37.

Last Days, Part 2: The Satanic Conspiracy - Pastor David

Most people would not recognize Satan if he had them by the throat. The reality is that in the local Christian assemblies spiritual warfare is not taught. I cannot overemphasize to you the reality of satanic influence that is being exerted today, a reality that is consistently being overlooked and/or played down by preachers who are supposed to know better.

Tower of Babel: Biblical History of Babylon and First Attempt to Breach The Firmament - Pastor David




.



Babylon has become of great interest to both religious and secular students and journalists. For Bible students, the subject of Babylon remains of great interest due to its prevalence in Biblical history and prophecy. The Tower of Babel, which I believe was man's, Satan-fueled, rebellious first effort to reach and try to break through the Firmament to attack God.

Babylon is mentioned 286 times in the Bible of which 12 usages are found in the NT, six of those in the book of Revelation. The word “Babel” is used twice – Genesis 10:10 and Genesis 11:9. Most of these references are referring to the massive and beautiful city of the Neo-Babylonian period (625-539 BC). With its “Hanging Gardens” and massive walls it has been regarded as one of the “Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.” The Greek historian Herodotus (484-425 BC) reported upon visiting the site that its splendour surpassed any city of the known world.

It was also the capital of the 18th century BC King Hammurabi, and was known throughout history as a great center of culture and religion. It was Nebuchadnezzar II (605-562 BC) who brought Babylon to its glory as it was called “The Palace of Heaven and Earth, the Seat of Kingship.” In Daniel 4:30 Nebuchadnezzar boasted “Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?”

Ancient Babylon covered an area of 1000 acres making it the largest city of the ancient world, some 15% larger than Ninevah. It had 1179 temples and a population of over 100,000 but could easily have handled over 250,000 people. The famous “Ishtar Gate” was 70 feet high and its arched opening 15 feet wide. Babylon’s most significant temple was Esagila (“the temple that raises its head”) and was supposedly the home of the god Marduk. According to cuneiform documents the temple was surrounded by an enclosure of about 1410 feet by 720 feet and housed over 50 other temples and shrines. Interesting comment by Jeremiah (50:38): “it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols.” Over 6000 figures (idols) were uncovered in the excavations of ancient Babylon and over 10 major altars. There were 180 open-air shrines for Ishtar and 200 identifiable places for other deities.

Adjacent to the temple of Esagila was the tower or ziggurat named Etemenanki called “the foundation house of heaven and earth.” It measured about 300 feet square at the base and rose in seven stages to a height of 300 feet. It could very well have been reconstructed and RESTORED from the original, (which was MUCH larger), “Tower of Babel” mentioned in Genesis 11. The Babylonians believed it was built by the gods, which of course the Word of God sets us straight on in Genesis 11:5.

NOTICE FIVE THINGS ABOUT THE BIBLICAL ORIGIN OF THIS CITY:
1) IT WAS A RESULT OF AN ATTEMPT TO ESTABLISH A KINGDOM THAT WOULD REBEL AGAINST GOD’S AUTHORITY – Genesis 10:8-10. a) The PERSON behind this effort – “Nimrod” His name means “to revolt” or “to rebel” His wife:”Semiramis” – the first high priestess of the Babylonian mystery religion. b) The POWER which he exercised – “mighty one in the earth” and “a mighty hunter before (or, RATHER against) the LORD.” c) The PROJECT he undertook – “and the beginning of his kingdom was Babel”

2) IT WAS A REBELLION AGAINST THE COMMAND OF THE LORD – Genesis 9:1; 11:4 confirm with Deut. 1:26, “but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God”

3) IT WAS A REVOLT AGAINST THE WORSHIP OF THE LORD – Genesis 11:4, “let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven” – confirm with Genesis 4:3-5; 8:20-21. (Note: 24 ziggurats have remains still standing in the Mesopotamian valley.

4) IT WAS A RESPONSE ROOTED IN PRIDE AND THE GLORIFICATION OF MAN – Genesis 11:4, “let us make us a name”

5) IT WAS A REMINDER OF GOD’S CONTROL AND SOVEREIGNTY OVER ALL THE EVENTS OF HUMAN HISTORY – Genesis 11:5-8 confirm with Psalm 103:19; 135:6; Daniel 2:21 A) It reminds us of God’s knowledge of all that humanity does – Genesis 11:5, “the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.” B) It reminds us of God’s majesty – “let US go down” C) It reminds us of God’s power – Genesis 11:7, “confound their language that they may not understand one another’s speech. D) It reminds us of God’s purposes – Genesis 11:8-9, “so the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth”

Last Days, part 1 - Pastor David

Confusion abounds today concerning demons and the occult powers of darkness due to a lack of serious Bible Study. The Word of God is the only authoritative "text-book" on this subject, we need, in order to gain a true understanding on things of this nature. ALL other sources of information have their origins in the Pit and must be handled with the utmost of care.

Who are the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11? SUPER EXTRA - Pastor David

.

"And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

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 11:9-13

"And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will."
