Satan has not yet been cast out of heaven

Satan has not yet been cast out of heaven

But it could happen any day.

By Craig C. White

The Devil was once an attractive angel named Lucifer. It is evident that the Devil has fallen from his former more glorious estate. The name Lucifer means “morning star”. The name Satan means “adversary”. But Satan has not yet been cast out of heaven for good.

Ezekiel 28:14-17 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

In the previous verses God says that He will cast Satan out of heaven and also that He will cast him to the ground. After God throws Satan to the earth, Satan will be further humiliated so that earthly kings will look at his demise. This has not happened yet but it will happen when Jesus Christ returns at the end of the Tribulation period (Rev 20:2). By the way, the prophecy of Ezekiel 28 was written around 580 BC, so Satan had not yet been cast out of heaven at that point.

Satan still has access to God’s throne in order to accuse believers. In the book of Job Satan is seen traveling between heaven and earth. The book of Job is thought to be one of the oldest writings of the Old Testament.

Job 1:7-11 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. 8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

Satan is again seen accusing believers in Revelation 12:10. In Revelation Satan is cast out of Heaven. This event ushers in the kingdom of God.

Rev 12:9-10 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Satan is cast out for good sometime before the Tribulation period begins. In 2Thessalonians chapter 2 the Apostle Paul tells us that two events must happen before the Tribulation can begin. They are the casting out of heaven of Satan and the revealing of the Antichrist with Satanically enabled false signs and wonders.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.

2Th 2:9-10 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Yes “a falling away” is the casting out of heaven of Satan. In 2Thessalonians Paul isn’t giving us new details about the end time. In other words, he isn’t telling us that the Holy Spirit will be removed from earth or that the Church will fall away from faith. Instead Paul is referencing Old Testament prophecy. In 2Thessalonians 2:15 Paul tells Church age believers to rely on the Old Testament and also on Paul’s letters in order to determine which events precede the period of God’s wrath on earth known as the Tribulation..

2Th 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

Satan will be cast out of heaven to the earth. He will then empower the Antichrist to perform false miracles. Turkish President Erdogan is identifiable as the end time invader of Israel. In Ezekiel 38:1-3 he is called the “chief prince” of Turkey. So Erdogan is the Antichrist! He has already been proclaimed as the divine Mahdi of Islam using false miracles. After Satan falls we can expect to see satanic signs following. It is High Time to Awake!

Creation the universal language

Creation the universal language

Everybody understands that there is a God

By Craig C. White

The sky proclaims that a glorious God has made it. Its message requires no translation. Every language understands.

Psalm 19:1-3 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

Every person understands that God exists even if they don’t acknowledge him. The overwhelming proof of creation leaves no room for an excuse not to worship God.

Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

God created the heavens and the earth and all things in them.

Psalm 33:6-9 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. 8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.

Jesus is God. Jesus existed before he was born as a man. Jesus created all things.

John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Jesus Christ is God. He came into the world that he created. God came into the world as a man. The world rejected their creator. But to all who receive him he will give friendship and eternal life.

John 1:10-13 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

The people in the world that God made killed Jesus. But God raised Jesus alive from the dead. Death has been overcome by Jesus own death. Even after death, God has the power to give life. Jesus has the power to give you everlasting life.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

You already understand that God created the heavens and the earth. It’s time to acknowledge him. Believe that Jesus is God and be saved.

Erdogan warns of attack on Hamah

Erdogan warns of attack on Hamah

Every Christian should be watching Hamah

By Craig C. White

Turkish President Erdogan says he cannot stand by while Idlib is annihilated. That means that the Turkish Army will soon attack the Syrian Army in the adjoining Hamah province.

Erdogan has been playing Russia, the US and the EU against each other. Putin has stopped the Syrian Army’s advance on Idlib in exchange for Turkey buying Russian fighter jets. The Turkish Army along with their Al-Qaeda allies are gathered in Idlib ready to attack the Syrian Army in Hamah.

Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.

This is the scenario that Jeremiah 49:23 describes. Jeremiah says that when Hamah hears evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. This is the beginning of the end time events that lead to the return of Jesus Christ for the Rapture and Israel’s time of trouble.

Why do the Heathen Rage?

ragePhoto credit: Monasosh: During Egypt’s “Days of Rage”; The sign reads, “Down with Omar Suleiman, Israel man”. Omar Suleiman is Egypt’s top intelligence chief. He was appointed vice-president by Hosni Mubarak on January 29, 2011. Suleiman has an anti-Islamist view and is sympathetic toward Israel.

Why do the Heathen Rage?

Rebellion is refusing to humble oneself under the authority of God.

Psalm 2, Acts 4

by Craig C. White

Throughout the Middle East and northern Africa the nations are exercising their “Days of Rage”. It has been widely proclaimed by the media that the nations are fighting to establish democracy. While some hope for democracy; Rage is induced by a different impulse. King David illuminates this timely question. “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?”

Psa 2:1-12 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. 6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. 10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Why do the Heathen Rage? Let’s take this one verse at a time.

Psa 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

The LORD’s anointed is Jesus Christ. The baptism of Jesus and his anointing with the Holy Spirit is recorded in all four gospels. This anointing of the Holy Spirit and the witness of God’s own voice prove that Jesus is the Son of God. We also have the following report of an eye-witness, namely John the Baptist. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

Mar 1:9-11 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan. 10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: 11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Psa 2:3-5 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. 5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

Why do the Heathen Rage? Here is the answer to our question. The heathen declare they will remove any authority or accountability that God the father or his Son have over them. This is of course impossible. God laughs at their opposition. Created earthly powers cannot compare with his power. They are too far inferior. God is above everything and separate from his creation.

Rebellion is a certain type of sin. It is more insidious than sexual immorality or murder or theft. Rebellion is refusing to humble oneself under the authority of the one true God. The result of rebellion is everlasting punishment.

Joh 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

The nations rage in order to break accountability to God. This vain rage results in Israel’s sore distress. In “the day of the Lord”, God will break the yoke that the heathen has placed on the neck of Israel. Israel will no longer have to bend to international pressure to give up their land or defend their right to exist.

Jer 30:8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:

Psa 2:6-9 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

After the “heathen rage” God places Jesus upon his everlasting throne in Jerusalem and gives him great honor. All nations are put under the authority of Jesus Christ. They are his to rule and judge forever.

Psa 2:10-12 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

Kings, Presidents, Governors listen up! When Jesus is king on Earth; he will reign with an iron rod. He will not tolerate dissent. My advice is that you begin serving him now.

Who are the “heathen”? What does the original Hebrew term go’ee or goyim mean? “Goyim” is commonly translated as nations, heathen, or gentiles in the English Bible. According to “Strong’s Hebrew and Greek Dictionaries” the root of go’ee refers to a massing of people, nations, animals, or locusts etc.

go’ee, go’-ee

Apparently from the same root as H1465 (in the sense of massing); a foreign nation; hence a Gentile; also (figuratively) a troop of animals, or a flight of locusts: – Gentile, heathen, nation, people.

In Joel’s three short chapters, God warns Israel that a nation is coming against them who are like locusts. There are a lot of them and they leave a path of destruction. Babylon partly fulfilled this prophecy in 608-585 B.C. Babylon attacked Judah on three different occasions. Joel’s prophecy also refers to a future invasion just prior to “the great and the terrible day of the Lord” (Joel 1:15, 2:1, 2:31, 3:14). Palmerworm, locust, cankerworm, and caterpillar are all referring to types of locusts.

Joe 1:4 That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpiller eaten. 5 Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth. 6 For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.

The locusts look like horses with teeth of a lion!

Joe 2:4-5 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. 5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.

The description of the locusts in revelation is nearly identical to that in Joel.

Rev 9:7-11 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. 10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

So, according to the root definition of the Hebrew word “goyim” and the prophet Joel, the “heathen” will invade Israel like locusts.

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? “ After the death and resurrection of Jesus the apostles Peter and John remember King David’s question.

Act 4:25-28 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? 26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, 28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

In Acts 4 the heathen rage and put Jesus to death. Perhaps heathen today reason they can accomplish this again. They forget that Jesus Christ rose from the dead. God raised him up, because it was not possible that death could hold him (Acts 2:24).

Act 2:24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

Christ’s death does not satisfy King David’s prophecy. The heathen are raging again. This time God will place Jesus upon his everlasting throne in Jerusalem.

Psa 2:6-9 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

God asked the question, “Why do the heathen rage?”. Today the world is answering that question. They say that the heathen rage for democracy. Of course they are giving the wrong answer. God knew they would. He gave the question “Why do the Heathen Rage?” as a sign of the end times. The heathen are raging and we are very close to Christ’s coming for his church, the Great Tribulation, and most importantly the establishment of Jesus Christ’s kingdom on Earth.

4 pillars for understanding near time Bible prophecy

4 pillars for understanding near time Bible prophecy

Turkey, Turkey, Turkey, and Mosul

By Craig C. White

Here are four simple insights that will help you to recognize what is going on in the world today.

1. In Ezekiel chapter 38 the man named Magog is the “chief prince” or primary governor of Turkey. Magog along with his brothers Meshech and Tubal were princes over the provinces of Asia Minor or what we call Turkey today. Ezekiel chapter 38 tells us that the primary ruler of Turkey will lead an invasion into Israel. Ezekiel chapter 39 tells us that the primary ruler of Turkey will also lead the battle of Armageddon. The Antichrist leads the battle of Armageddon so the primary governor of Turkey is the Antichrist. Today Turkish President Erdogan claims that he is god. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist!

Eze 38:1-3 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

Read Magog Made Easy! https://hightimetoawake.com/magog-made-easy/

2. Isaiah 17:1 tells us that Damascus will be destroyed. Jeremiah 49:23 tells us that this invasion begins in Syria’s northwestern cities near the Turkish border. Turkey will invade Syria from the northwest and then march down to Damascus. Isaiah chapter 10 identifies the Antichrist as being similar to the ancient Assyrian kings because he will also invade Syria and then invade northern Israel. Turkish President Erdogan will destroy Damascus and then invade Israel.

Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.

Read The nations are disquieted over Syria. https://hightimetoawake.com/the-nations-are-disquieted-over-syria/

3. Daniel chapter 7 describes three Unions that will combine to form the next World Empire. These three Unions are 1) the European Union 2) the new Russian Union 3) a new Middle Eastern Union. The new Middle Eastern Union will be represented by a leopard. I think that after Turkey conquers Syria they will then install Muslim Brotherhood leadership there. Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran will be the first four nations to form this Union. These four nations are all located along the Euphrates River (Revelation 9:14).

Daniel 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.

Read The Leopard is Upon Us! https://hightimetoawake.com/the-leopard-is-upon-us/

4. The book of Nahum indicates that the city of Mosul will be flooded by water. Mosul is located in northern Iraq. The ruins of ancient Nineveh are located within its city limits. God destroyed ancient Nineveh with a flood of water. He will also destroy Mosul with a flood. Mosul is the hometown and headquarters of ISIS.

Nahum 1:8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.

Read The End of ISIS is near! https://hightimetoawake.com/the-end-of-isis-is-near/

To summarize; First Turkey will invade Syria from its northwestern border. Turkey will march down to Damascus and destroy the old city. Turkey will then form a new Middle Eastern Union. After Turkey destroys Damascus it will lead an invasion into Israel. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist! Also at some point soon ISIS will be flooded in Mosul.
