The Duality of the Scripture
Page 3

THE CHURCH OF GOD

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)

THE 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)

THE TWELVE 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.

THE FALSE 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)

THAT GREAT 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.

THAT GREAT 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.

JESUS CHRIST, IS THE LION OF JUDAH

Revelation 5:5-And 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.

THE DEVIL, 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 Thessalonians 2:3-5).

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.
