When you look out the window, how can you tell the wind is blowing? The trees moving gives evidence to the air movement you don’t see. Through Jesus life on Earth we discern that Bible Truth is revealed to individuals; along with all insight into reality a group of adversaries are also made known. The Apostle Paul stated that to the Ephesians: Because we have a struggle, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
Who is it that we must recognize? Who is it we must struggle with and where are they? Who are the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places? They are angels. Not the ones that you might think of. These angels are “wicked spirit forces” exercising their right to choose for themselves what is wrong and what is right. Those who have stayed in the realms of Heaven, allow Jehovah God to set acceptable moral values and conduct. These others have left the Heavens, yet reside in the heavenly or lofty places to men and must remain here until their final judgement of death. These angels once had the opportunity to live forever in the Heavens under the sovereignty of their creator, Almighty God Jehovah. For one reason or another that became undesirable to them, thus they rebelled and were evicted from Heaven and barred from associating with loyal angels and Almighty God Jehovah.
A Place of Eternal Torment
What torments these angels the most is that other loyal angels are still in Heaven and will live on long after these disgruntled ones are destroyed. According to Revelation chapter 7:14 some people on Earth have this opportunity too, Living for all eternity in the future, thus the angels confined here hate them for that. These wicked spirit creatures would have every life take a stand against God. Hoping Jehovah would stand all alone for righteousness, He would have to either destroy every conscious being or surrender to Satan’s rebellion. This is the Greatest Torment the Bible speaks of. It’s not a place, its knowing you are dying and out of God’s favor, while others, choosing to submit to Jehovah’s moral values, will live on indefinitely and enjoy a better life not yet experienced by men or women. Think of it, your neighbor is promised the best life you can imagine peace, health, security, joy and happiness forever, while you live a few short years and die! Revelation 21:3-8
The angels that the Bible foretells would be here today are referred to as Demons. They are active today, along with Satan the Devil in resisting Jehovah God’s efforts to teach people everywhere of the Bibles hope for mankind. Mtt. 24:14. How do they do that? The most profitable way is to lead them to believe they are Saved because they said they were sorry and God Loves them. Where people won’t believe that all religions lead to God, outright opposition by political or religious leaders is the preferred method. Where outright opposition is not available, by defamation and distraction can be used. The Russian Ban on Jehovah’s Witnesses is a good illustration of how demons influence men to do things that are not even reasonable or believable. Jehovah’s Witnesses are known worldwide for their door to door ministry, their non-involvement in politics and the military of any nation. Just as Jesus never assaulted anybody, Jehovah’s Witnesses strive to be peaceable with everyone. You would never imagine labeling them as Extremists, as in terror, yet that is what the Russian Leaders did. When groups of people do things that are not even reasonable there is good reason to believe they are being influenced by Satan and the other demons. You might ask “How were they influenced?”
Who Are Being Used By Them?
Who would benefit by a ban on Jehovah’s Witnesses? Who hates them the most? The government has no reason to hate them. The Witnesses are peaceable citizens that pay their taxes. They do not support one political party over another. Who suffers the most when the Witnesses are flourishing in a community? Who is the easiest for Satan and his demons to influence? In Russia it is the Orthodox Church. The Church treats Jehovah’s Witnesses as a rival business rather than fellow Christians encouraging more Bible reading and application as Jesus taught. Why are churches so easily swayed by demons? Because Satan uses the fleshly desires of men to create a worldwide counterfeit religious society that feeds on hype, glory, power, show, riches and money rather than on simple Bible truth and hope. The Bible describes this society as a harlot that sets atop the governments of the world, selling and trading her influence over the masses to those in power. Please read or listen to Revelation 18 and see what Jesus foretold would happen to this great society who have preyed on people’s desire to know God. See how they have influence over the nations by her spiritistic practices. vs 23 .See how they have bought the nicest things from merchants and businesses of the world. See how in one day Jehovah God will defame them and destroy them for defrauding generation after generation. The greatest fraud ever committed! And look where the demons are in verse 2.
What is it that makes them so reprehensible before Almighty God?
It is all the slanderous lies they have taught people about God Himself. One such teaching is Eternal Torment in a Fiery Hell. That makes God appear to be some kind of Monster, torturing people forever. The truth is so easy to explain as brought out in the Bible. In speaking about how people die, Psalms 146:4 states “His spirit goes out, he returns to the ground; on that very day his thoughts perish.” See Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10
The Bible states this over and over again. So why do churches tell you different? It goes back to the demons and their hatred for anyone who might gain what they lost, God’s Favor and the real Hope found in the Bible. The Bible was inspired by one God, there should be a oneness of thought and purpose from Genesis to Revelation. The Bible states that God cannot lie, because of this we can harmonize all the inspired scriptures and trust what the Bible says. The Bible explains that God created a son first, that son was born as Jesus. He then created many sons and the physical creation we see. The Bible explains how God would legally replace the perfect life Adam forfeited with the perfect man Jesus became. Book after book we learn Jehovah’s principles and how He will set Jesus up as His King of His Kingdom. That Kingdom is what will govern the Earth in the very near future. The Bible should be the Touchstone of every religion. Please read Titus 1:1-2 Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ according to the faith of God’s chosen ones and the accurate knowledge of the truth that is according to godly devotion 2 and is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago. Hebrews 6:18
The first one to ever lie was Satan the Devil as brought out at John 8:44 “ you are from your father the Devil, and you wish to do the desires of your father. That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie]”.
Going back to the point, God cannot lie. God influenced the writers of the Bible that it would be a Book of Truth. Satan was the First Liar. Satan, along with many demons influenced men and women to lie about God that the masses not actual come to know God, they worship the lie. The churches around the world teach doctrines that are made up by men thousands of years ago. These doctrines spin Bible verses to say what they want them to. Let’s look at one of those doctrines: The Hell fire Doctrine. Churches have taught that if you do not seek God’s forgiveness you will be tortured by God eternally in the flames of Hell. Collections go up when this brought out, however think about it, this would mean that the Bible has a lie in it at Psalms 146:4 where we read In That Day His Thoughts Do Perish. How can you be tormented without thought, thinking or brain activity? You Can’t.

By defamation and distraction
Many Christian churches say that when a loved one dies, God took them to Heaven. Would that move you to love God? What if it was your husband or wife, or what if it was your young child who had not lived long enough to have a relationship with God? Did God need your child so much that He forsook your thinking and feelings for your child and just ripped it away from you? Is that the God of Love you worship or does this bring up feelings of resentment? Many have slandered God by saying such untrue beliefs. The truth found in the Bible states that Jehovah is Righteous, always doing the right thing. Since it’s unreasonable to believe that Jehovah is just randomly choosing people to take to Heaven, these beliefs must come from some who want you to have bad thoughts of Him and Fear Him. That is how many religions work, they create a fear of God, an apprehension, and thus you need them as your liaison.
Some time after Jehovah God took the Hebrew descendants of Abraham to become teachers by example to the world they began to reason on His Holiness and man’s sinfulness. They wrongfully reasoned that Jehovah God is so Holy that we cannot and should not pronounce His Name. To do so would defame God Himself. The same thought was then applied to writing the Divine Name, so they would abbreviated it with the letters YHWH. By doing this, the way they spelled and pronounced the name was lost, leading men to say that since you do not know for sure how to pronounce it, you should not say it. However men that say such real limit God and His power. If Jehovah God was so powerful to inspire the Bible, He could correct the first men who starting pronouncing His Name Jehovah. The most important thing is for us to know this is His Personal Name. The name separates Him from all other beings. Jesus taught us to pray for the sanctity of his Father’s Name. Mtt.6:9,10. We must use that name and attribute all His Love, His Justice, His Power, His Righteousness to that name. Too, as he fore-knew we would use the His name, He warns us never to take up His name in a useless way. Just as your name and reputation states who you are, Jehovah represents Him, those who slander Him, as Satan, the demons, men and false teachings are doing, do not go unnoticed by Him. Isaiah 43:10-12
There is no end to the opportunity to become some notable person today, but how long will it last? Where are the rich men of history? Are they not all in the Grave? Where are the Powerful men of history? Are they not there too? Life is the most valuable of all the possessions a man may have, those in the grave can do nothing today. For six thousand years people have lived and died, Jehovah God promises us that everyone who Hopes in Him will not be disappointed. The Bible truthfully teaches that there is a Hope of Eternal Life in Paradise on Earth, How can you achieve that life? The Bible answers that question at John 17:3 This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.
Eternity does exist, be a part of it by taking in this Life Enabling Knowledge
There was a display of hate today in Charlottesville,VA. Satan and his demons are not limited to 1 tool that works. No, Satan has influential power over the 3 parts of the world; government,commerce and religion. People who are difficult to be swayed by Satan or his demons through one of these organizations, are then tempted by the works of the flesh. Galatians 5:19-21
How many lives are ruled by hate? Look at what is taking place in Syria. Before that Iraq, Rwanda,Bosnia-Herzegovina,Pol Pot in Cambodia,Nazi Holocaust…Satan uses Hate effectively.
Galatians 5:22-24 Speaks of the fruitage of God’s Spirit,meaning that if you are truthfully trying to follow Jesus example and praying to God for His Spirit to help you, these qualities are what you will willingly cultivate. The first one is LOVE, Love is the opposite of Hate. Out of Love for God and respect for the gift of Jesus Life Blood everyday we will strive to Love what God loves and Hate what He hates.
Jesus stated that the two greatest commandments are :He said to him: “‘You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and first commandment. 39 The second, like it, is this, ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments the whole Law hangs, and the Prophets. Mtt.22: 37-39
Tomorrow will bring a new day, soon Jehovah will send Jesus with many angels to separate people by the fruitage of their life. Jehovah Hopes that all of us will will be found showing Love for Him and our neighbors. Satan’s greatest hope is that everyone on Earth will hate Jehovah, hate Jesus,hate everyone else and take their stand with him and the demons. Matthew 25:31–46
In all the countries, governments, races, classes, organizations and groups on Earth Today, there is only 2 sides.
