Isaiah 14. 12-15 â€œHow you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer,Â son of the morning!
HowÂ you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13Â For you have said in your heart:
â€˜I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north
14Â I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.â€™
15Â Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.
Here we see the objective of Satan, the enemy of your mind, if we understand correctly, for this is why scripture says “the weapons of our warfare are mighty through God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. For it is here in your mind that Â Satan plants his kingdom. The counterfeit one like the real one. To “become like the most high”.
Paul calls him “the coming one” with all lying signs and wonders. Meaning a duplicate, a replica, a replacement, and a look alike, a mimicker and a wanna be. The one who is not yet but is coming. This one to sit in the place of God proclaiming Â to be God. And he dominates where? In your mind, our battle field, our Galgatha.
It is ‘the coming one” who is the replacement in the carnal mind of Him who is from the beginning. He who already was being “the same yesterday, today and forever” cannot become something later as though He is not because He already was and always will be. Hebrews 13.8
So here is the truth little flock. It is the carnal mind that is the enemy against God (Romans 8.7) who seeks another Jesus. For Satan who is defeated by the cross through the blood and the testimony of Jesus Christ as we appropriate this truth by faith like scripture says “Jesus came to defeat him who had power over death” And “the Son of God was manifest to destroy the works of the Devil”. Receiving this word as fact administered by the Holy Spirit it becomes your reality. This is your work of faith.
But the carnal mind being ignorant of this and unable to see Him who always is. The carnal mind allows Satan to insert his counterfeit kingdom in his mind, how? By rejecting the truth of the gospel and inserting another one.
Â It is the confession in 1st John that says; you have overcome the wicked one because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world”. This they reject.
John also teaches; every spirit (doctrine and teaching) that confesses (an expression of faith) that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,Â and every spirit (doctrine and teaching) that does not confess thatÂ Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God”.Â
It is every spirit, doctrine and teaching that does not believe that Jesus Christ already came in the flesh and defeated Satan Sin and Death, that is not of God. They preach of another victory by another Jesus at another coming. A Jesus who is not yet but will be, and they set their hope on that event for the objective to crown another coming one.
This one is satanic to the core, “for the Son of God came and did the works no one else could do” And He need not give an encore presentation called the 2nd coming to war again because you don’t believe… The Son of God has come in the flesh. He defeated His foes and returned to the Father.
1st John also says 2.14 I have written to you because you are strong and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked Â one”. But you don’t have that because you don’t believe the testimony of scripture. You think the next Jesus does that.
It is the second coming message that is spoon fed to the fold teaching that satan has power. And because of their ignorance of scripture and the power of God, they bring back to life and resurrect their own foe by rejecting Christ. The Victor came defeated and returned crowned in full Glory.
It is the spirit of anti-Christ, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience (disbelief) that refuse this truth, who Satan has dominion over. Meaning ,he set up his throne in that disbelieving mind exalting himself over the one who came. And God gave him permission.
Paul says “for this reason God sends forth a strong delusion, a mimicker, and an imitation, a replacement and a counterfeit, that they mayÂ believeÂ a lie… to those who have pleasure inÂ unrighteousness, those who reject the Christ of the cross and His victory, they get another coming one.
From John 16 It is the Spirit of God that comes and; 8.Â convicts the world (carnal mind) of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:Â 9Â of sin, because they do not believe in Me; (as the crowned victor of all foes)Â 10Â of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;Â (Proof He is the crowned victor)Â 11Â of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged”. So who does Jesus fight when He comes back?
You see Satan is publicly negated being stripped of all power at the cross, if you see him through the cross “having made a public spectacle” Col 2.15. But you don’t believe that either
If Jesus had anymore dealing with Satan, Sin, or Death He could not return to the Father. If Jesus has any more dealing with Satan Sin and Death He could not be seated in Glory. And it is those who reject the testimony the Father gave to the Son, who is crowned, seated in eternal Glory, who was restored the Glory, who never had not the Glory. (John 13.31+ and 17.22+ and 2 Cor 3.18 + 4.6)Â
This is the one they reject and we are given a choice saying “for this reason God sends a strong delusion”. Not an illusion but a devolved truth, a delusion.The obscured truth. Twisted scripture. The lie, the counterfeit, another (2nd) coming one, he who is not, but will be, he who must become as though he is not. He who said he would “sit among the congregation on the farthest sides of the north” being the upper regions of your mind? May I introduce to you the second coming Jesus? What a perfect lie. The another coming oneÂ whoseÂ coming is of satan and not from the Father. ButÂ the true Jesus has returned to the Father and it is this truth you reject for your own condemnation. (John 16.28) And rejecting the truth you receive the lie. “that they all may be condemned, who did not believe the truth but have pleasure in a lie. (2 Thes 2.9-12)
Anytime you reject the gift of eternal life offered through the cross by the power of the blood of Jesus Christ, and ascribe power and victory to another coming one, it is as if you reverse your spiritual polarity to drain you of the power of the cross and seat in power another Jesus. It is your unbelief in Christ as the victor now that opens the door in your heart and mind of another coming Jesus because you reject the victory of the blood for the future victory of another. “Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, so that he sits as God in the temple of God” and he uses the name Jesus. And the temple of God should be where? In your heart and mind. Within you (Luke 17.22)Â
You see the Pharisees made the same mistake as second coming seekers thinking the temple of God was physical when Jesus said “destroy this temple and I will raise it up in 3 days”. This too is another error of second coming jesus seekers who think a temple must be built on earth.. They don’t even know that satan rules on their throne now, keeping them from the kingdom of God now. They are taken captive to do his bidding. (2 Tim…) In that they error. They Glorify a second coming jesus, and it is this jesus that sits on their throne, being the determining factor on how they interpret all scripture to glorify that one in the future. It is Jesus who said that the Kingdom of God is within you” that the carnal mind rejects and trades it for a future physical one.Â
The whole idea that the temple must be built and to restart the animal sacrifices for sin for jesus to be happy to come back is a blatant slap in the face of the Christ of the cross. Or even if youÂ believeÂ thatÂ the antichrist will be seated for Jesus to come back to defeat him, you are equally rejecting the Christ of the cross. For “He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us Â into the kingdom of His Son. You do notÂ believeÂ this scripture. “For Christ has come in the flesh. Your Jesus is somewhere out there.
And this is theÂ spiritÂ of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. This spirit, doctrine and teaching from those “who were among us, but manifest that they were not of us” twist scripture to manifest the concept of another battling Jesus to overcome Satan, to cleanse the Jews from sin, and resurrect to reign on earth 1000 years. I mean jeesh, how many 2nd comings and resurrections are there? Confused? who caused that? Who authors confusion? Â
And to you who promulgate that stuff “let not many you be teachers knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment” If the kingdom of God is still at hand and many are pressing into it, but you preach of another kingdom and another Jesus at a distant point in time on earth and detain those who are trying to enter, what do you suppose your judgment will be?
The Kingdom of God is not only imminent. It is immediate for that is what “at hand” means in the Greek and is interpreted that way else where in scripture. So it can not mean 2000 plus years. So if John the Baptist was “the voice crying in the wilderness, speak to my people, make straight the way in the desert a highway to our God, for His Glory to be revealed”?. Why is it you ascribe the victory and the glory to a different event than John to crown another Jesus of a different battle and nullify the purpose of John the baptist and reject the testimony that “God has sent His Son into the world to save the world”. John 3.17. I mean you know what John 3.16
means but you jump over 3.17.
It is the victory of the gospel of the cross that is “the power of God unto salvation ” that we adorn and not another.
So was Christ the coming one For you, or do you seek another? Do you seek an encore presentation called the 2nd coming and deny the coming one who came like the one the Jews rejected?Â
Well did the prophet Isaiah say “these people honor Me with their mouth but their heart is far from Me” And well did the Christ say ” you are not entering the Kingdom and you are keeping out those trying to do so”
Repent for the Kingdom of God is still at hand.
