Predestination
Page 2

The Greek definition for the word worlds in Hebrews 11:3 means, an age. (Strong’s #165)

Haven’t you always wondered that there was more to God’s word than you’ve been taught. Well, I invite all sincere seekers of truth to take this journey with me into the scripture to see if that’s true.

Ephesians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself.

There are two Greek words that translate foundation: one is themelios, the other is katabole. In Genesis 1:1, we have the ‘founding’ or ‘conception’ (themelios) of the first earth age, created in perfection before Satan’s rebellion. (Strong’s #2602) In Genesis 1:2 we find the earth covered in water formless and in ruin, the desolate state is the result of God ‘overthrowing’ or ‘casting down’ (katabole) Satan’s rebellion in that first earth age. (Strong’s #2598) If we, as Christians are going to be victorious against Satan’s political and religious system in this earth age then, we must learn from our past experience with this beast system because we faced it once before in heaven.

Revelation 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his head.

The word ‘wonder’ in Greek means, "a sign" (Strong’s #4592)

Here, a sign is given to us in heaven that shows the great red dragon as the religious leader and the multi-headed beast as the political system. This is the beast system that Satan used in heaven to deceive one third of God’s children in his rebellion (Revelation 12:4). My friend, if you don’t know how it started in the beginning, then you are in serious danger of being deceived by this same beast system in the end time. Satan is going use this political and religious system once again with one difference. In Satan’s rebellion in heaven, his power structure of deception consisted of seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. In this earth age Satan’s power is even more deceptive because of the three additional crowns he is given: seven heads, ten horns, and ten crowns.

Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
