Acts 20:28-Take heed therefore unto
yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath
made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath
purchased with His own blood.
The word ‘church’ means, "a calling out, a
popular meeting, a religious congregation, Jewish synagogue or Christian
community of members on earth." (Strong’s #1577)
SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN
Revelation 2:9-I know thy
works, and tribulation, and poverty (but thou art rich), and I know
the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the
synagogue of Satan.
The word ‘synagogue’ means, "an assemblage
of person; specially a Jewish synagogue the meeting place; by analogy a
Christian church: congregation." (Strong’s #4864)
APOSTLES OF CHRIST
Matthew 10:2-4-Now the names of
the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called
Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee,
and John his brother; Philip, and Bartholomew;
Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of
Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon
the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
Here, we have the original twelve apostles, not
disguised as Satan’s apostles, but openly serving the Lord Jesus Christ.
APOSTLES OF SATAN
2 Corinthians 11:13-15-For
such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into
the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is
transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if
his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works.
The word ‘transforming’ in Greek means, "to
disguise." (Strong’s #3345)
CITY HOLY JERUSALEM
Revelation 21:10-And he
carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and
shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of
heaven from God.
CITY MIGHTY BABYLON
Revelation 18:10-Standing afar
off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city
Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come.
CHRIST, IS THE LION OF JUDAH
one of the elders saith unto me, weep not: behold, the Lion of the
tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and
loose the even seals thereof.
AS THE ROARING LION
1 Peter 5:8-Be sober, be
vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
JESUS, THE TRUE ROCK OF AGES
1 Corinthians 10:4-And did drink the same spiritual
drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and
that Rock was Christ (Numbers 20:7-11).
Written in the scripture are two rocks of opposing
forces: one Rock leads to eternal life, the other rock
leads to eternal death. Even our enemies are a witness to this truth. I
wonder how many Christians know it?
Deuteronomy 32:30-31-How should one chase a thousand,
And two put ten thousand to flight, Except their Rock had sold them, And
the LORD had shut them up? For their rock is not as our
Rock, Even our enemies themselves being judges.
If our enemies know that there are two rocks written
of in the scripture, than how come many Believers do not know this
truth? For this reason, many good Christians will stumble and fall over
this false rock thinking that it’s Jesus. Isaiah 8:11-15, 1 Peter
2:6-8, Isaiah 28:16-21. This prophecy concerning the false rock is
actually the lyrics to a song God commanded Moses to write as a witness
against New Testament Israel. Deuteronomy 31:14-22 is where God
gave Moses the command to write this great song. The actual writing of
the song did not occur until Deuteronomy 32:1-47. Your knowledge
of the lyrics to this song will give you the victory over the beast
system because the lyrics sing out Satan’s deception.
Revelation 15:2-3-And I saw as it were a sea of glass
mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the
beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his
name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And
they sing the song of Moses the servant of God.
SATAN, AS THE FALSE ROCK
Ezekiel 28:12-13-Son of man, take up a lamentation
upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou
hast been in Eden the garden of God.
This reference to the garden of Eden should not leave
any doubt in your mind as to who this lamentation is directed at because
Tyrus the earthly king was never in Eden, but Satan in his role as the
serpent was in Eden (Genesis 3:1).
The Hebrew word for ‘Tyrus’ is ‘Tsowr’
and it means, ‘a rock.’ (Strong’s #6865)
Before Satan’s fall from grace in heaven, he was an
anointed king. After his fall from grace, he was demoted to the prince
of this world. (Ezekiel 28:11 - Ezekiel 28:2 - John 12:31).
Ezekiel 28:2-Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou
hast said, I am a GOD, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the
seas, yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart
as the heart of God.
Satan’s prideful claim to be God and to sit in the
seat of God is found in two other places. (Isaiah 14:12-16 & 1
Ezekiel 28:14-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
The title of anointed cherub can only be used when
referring to an angelic entity, and not Tyrus, a human being, who God
used as an example to illustrate His point.
