(Entr'acte) Why Write About Lucifer?

(Entr'acte) Why Write About Lucifer?
[ Prior Chapter | Contents | Next Chapter ]

    Because we've taken the time to examine angels and demons in this book, I now wonder how many pretend mystics will accuse this ministry of angel worship. As ridiculous as that sounds, there are numerous false prophets using this same logic by calling seedliners "devil worshippers" because we dare mention that a literal Satan appears in scripture. Scripturally, one must bow down and worship a deity to be serving another "god" (Exodus 20:5 & Deuteronomy 5:9), all else is a healthy examination of the scriptures. The Word of God is Truth (John 17:17), therefore beware of those who spend more time attacking the sanctity of the scriptures, they have the power to save all of Israel without any of man's spurious "interpretations." Those who write off the reality of a literal Satan or other angelic beings do so by dismissing over a quarter of the entire Bible. Naturally, false prophets wish to take the place of God like their father Satan so they instead desire to teach co-dependence upon their "deeper meanings" as if the Word is fallible (Revelation 19:13). It's my prayer that this book - Satan-el - will further splinter the various "no-devil doctrines" that have misled well-meaning Christians in today's apostasy. As of late, some have accepted the judeo-Christian "no devil" doctrine teaching others this damnable heresy even refusing to repent for their dishonest actions. Any attack on the infallibility of scripture is an assault on Christ Himself as Christians know nothing of the morality of God outside of its pages.

    The fact that Lucifer is Satan is undeniable because a mere man couldn't fall from heaven (Isaiah 14:12) as no man has seen God (John 1:18). Furthermore, the teaching of angels is important because Jesus tells us “As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:37-39). Christians should not only be on guard against "the fallen" but those who interject dogma designed to guard Satan and his demons!

    Some Identity pastors pretend to preach the Mosaic law but also refuse the stoning of false prophets (like themselves) or they allow women to teach men the scriptures because they ignore the teachings of Paul in his own epistles (I Timothy 2:11-13). The numerous miracles and actions ascribed to angels in the Bible are downright impossible to be fulfilled by simple man and the fact that such false prophets are among us is nothing new (II Peter 2:1). Undoubtedly, a pastor could preach indefinitely on the reality of angels as found in the scriptures. Their authenticity is so strong that throughout history there have even been numerous cults dedicated to the worship of angels causing Yahweh to strictly prohibit such activities in His Law. Still, certain men who've “crept in unawares” (Jude 1:4) have made it their position to discredit the established teachings of Christian Identity, the Bible and similar doctrines accepted by the Messiah Himself. Until they're silenced this ministry will continue! It's practically laughable that some false prophets spend so much time attempting to discredit what's plainly written in the Word of God. It's almost like they wish to leave large volumes of literature that testifies to their own blindness and ignorance hoping that other misguided souls will follow suit. There are many mysteries in the Bible which can lead to a deeper understanding of the spirit world but perhaps no mystery so confusing as to why so-called Christians deny it's ability to save all of Israel even when taken at face value.

    It's my prayer that this book helps to establish God's Kingdom on earth and touches those who require assistance against the imposters working against us. In today's apostasy there are plentiful imposters that deny the reality of cherubs and perhaps more importantly, demons and fallen angels like Lucifer. One can't call themselves "identity" if they can't even detect the enemy of the authentic Israel people. Some say such pretenders have good intentions but I feel their attacks on foundational truths are calculated. It's essentially easy to spot a large amount of these deceitful Bible teachers, they usually ramble on about their own "contributions" to the Christian movement or pointlessly gab about nonsense while never really discussing the Word of God. The enemy is never content to be a "low man on the totem pole" so they will usually rise to higher positions that offer them added power over legitimate believers and greater control over what information is presented.

    False prophets often attack the truthful under the guise of "Christian civility" meaning that if you don't accept their jewish belief that Satan is your own flesh (yeẓer ha-ra) than you're being unnecessarily uncivil. To dismiss the reality of angels is to write off the Bible as it's plainly written. Again, the scripture means exactly what it says and has the ability to save God's Israel people during every era, with or without man's long-winded explanations. If the scripture says there's demons or devils then they are factual. Seemingly, it matters little to the deceived Christian how many scriptural proofs you provide them with regarding the Biblical concepts of heavenly cherubim or evil spirits. As a little leaven leavens the whole lump (Galatians 5:9), so too those that accept the belief that they themselves are Satan are in a continual cycle of being off-track. The good thing is such pitiful critters are bound under us because Christ gave us the victory through His sacrifice (I Corinthians 15:57). The "no-devil" belief is relatively new - and foreign - to Christian Identity. It's designed by the enemies of God to shatter the Body of Christ by those who openly hold to "teachings of Balaam" and play upon man's intellect. In the Biblical narrative, the dumb ass or "mute donkey" had more wisdom than Balaam until Yahweh opened his eyes giving him the ability to see what was always in plain sight. Such is the way that those who deny the existence of literal angels and demons should be handled - only Jesus Christ can give one eyes to see.

    Those who are unable to read the Bible as it's plainly written shouldn't even be attempting to teach others the scriptures because it draws others away into the dangerous practice of spiritualizing away unembellished concepts. Be on guard against those who say that Jesus didn't mean exactly what He taught or that the scripture needs to be "deciphered" by them alone. There's no private interpretation in Yahweh's eternal Word (II Peter 1:20) yet false doctrines are seemingly born every day, most likely born of man's own ignorance, emotionalism or failure to read. The Bible is our measure of standard concerning all doctrine (II Timothy 3:16) and is also the Christian's "weapon" against false prophets who twist Yah's guidelines (Ephesians 6:17). This same Word has the ability to save God's covenant people in every generation without Bible "instructors." The Word of God is flawless (Hebrews 4:12). Let's all be sure to battle against those who teach contrary to God's undying Word and only encourage those who seek to prove its faultlessness for the elected Israel people. My main intention with this large volume is to show the double-mindedness of makeshift "pastors" that push their false belief that Satan and angels aren't factual. Such insects are unstable in all their ways (James 1:8) and their denial of the supernatural realm frequently leads others into dismissing the resurrection or heaven itself. Ironically, such teachings are the creeds of Sadducees (Acts 23:8) which Christ taught so adamantly against during His ministry.

    We must all be on guard against dishonest teachers that twist the Word of God. Angels and demons are real, heaven and hell are factual and the Bible is correct in every regard. Either man stands as the liar he is as confirmed in scripture (Romans 3:4) or the ceaseless Word of God is truth as Christ teaches (John 17:17). It always boils down to man going his own way as a "god" of his own making or following the King of Kings Jesus Christ who knows what's best for His creation. Let's not fall into the trap of following extra-Biblical tripe put forth by godless men that will never see the Kingdom. War for Christ! Amen.
