Satan is the great deceiver, the prince of this world, deceiving ALL them who dwell on the earth by means of miracles, power, signs and lying wonders. Think not that you have not been deceived by the god of this world; who has blinded our minds with the wisdom of his evil.
And Satan showed Jesus ALL the kingdoms of this world, and the glory of them, and said unto him, "ALL these things I will give thee, if thou will fall down and worship me." (Matthew 4:8-9)
We ALL wrestle against the ruler of the darkness of this evil world, sometimes walking according to the prince of the power of the air; the WHOLE world lying in wickedness. As Satan says in Isaiah 45:5-7, "I am the LORD, THERE IS NONE ELSE; I form the light, and I create the darkness; I make peace, and I CREATE EVIL: I the LORD do ALL these things." Reading Mark 10:18, "And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God."
Now reading Revelation 12:9, in part, we see that Satan has many names, that he can appear in many forms; after all, this is his world; "the great Dragon, that old Serpent called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the WHOLE world." You see, Satan can appear as the Dragon, Beast, LORD God, Satan, Angel of Light, Devil, even God (because no one has ever seen God) and as the Serpent in the Garden of Eden, etcetera. He can also enter into people, like Judas, and make them do his bidding; or fill them with demons to torment them like the man obsessed by Legion.
Satan, LORD God and the Serpent in the Garden of Eden were all one and the same: a great deception. You see, Satan brought his followers into the trap to help thwart the efforts of the Fallen angels who want to return home. And so God sends his messengers to correct things and provide an opportunity for the fallen angels who want to return home, so they can return home.
The play in the Garden of Eden was all a very clever deception arranged by Satan for a purpose.
We see in Genesis 3:14-15, that Eve has been unchaste with the Serpent. And LORD God says, "I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed." Eve had intercourse with the Serpent. Reading 1John 3:12, "Cain who was of that wicked one, slew his brother because his works were evil and Abel's were righteous."
LORD God knows that if he rejects Cain's offering, that Cain will slay righteous Abel and prevent Abel's bloodline from multiplying, thus closing off communication with God and any hopes of the fallen angels returning home. But God being ALL Knowing and ALL Powerful, this was not to be.
So Cain offered up the ultimate sacrifice to LORD God, that of his younger brother Abel. But wait, the LORD God does not punish Cain, "an eye for an eye," but instead, sends Cain out into the world, protected, to raise a Family unto Satan. Cain was the seed of Satan, whereas Abel was the seed of God. And that is why we read in Genesis 4:25, Eve saying, "For God (not LORD God), hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew - Seth."
And Satan said unto Cain; I will make you fruitful, and multiply your seed, and establish my covenant with you: and you shall chase my enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword; and I will set my tabernacle among you, and my soul shall not abhor you; and I will walk among you, and will be your God, and you shall be my people. But, if you will not hearken unto me, and will not do ALL my commandments, and if you shall despise my statues, or if your soul abhor my judgments, and you break our covenant, I will appoint terror over you that shall consume your heart (soul), and I will set my face against you, and break the pride of your power, and rob you of your children, and your highways shall be desolate, and you shall be slain. (2Corinthians 13:11 "Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.")
And so the LORD God puts a "mark" on Cain, so that any one who finds him will not kill him, the same "mark" of the Beast (Satan) in Revelation 13:17, whereby the Family of Satan are recognized and run the finances of this world. (Ephesians 3:14-15, "For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named.") Copy breeds familiarity; so Satan tries to copy as much of the design of Heaven as possible.
Since the beginning, Satan has had a great appetite for blood, especially that of the "little ones": as modern history testifies with the blood of innocents; and as Biblical history testifies with child sacrifice to Moloch (2Kings 23:10; Leviticus 18:21, 20:3-5; Jeremiah 19:4-5; Amos 5:26).
Reading Jude 1:11, "Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and run greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perish in the gainsaying of Core." And reading Acts 7:43, "Ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them." Take heed you devils: reading Matthew 23:35, "That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar, unto the innocent man you bled-out on the cross, and every one in between, and since then."
Reading Matthew 9:13, Jesus says, "I will have mercy, not sacrifice: if you had known what this means, I will have mercy not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless." (Matthew 12:7) Satan has chased after the bloodline of Seth down through the ages; from Seth to Enoch, Noah, Job, Daniel, Abraham, Moses, Isaac, David, Levi, Joseph and Jesus and everyone in between; trying to destroy the bloodline while God sends his messenges to save them. LORD God was trying to drown Noah, God saved him. Job is an excellent account of Satan trying to break a man. Daniel was to be eaten by lions; God saved him. Abraham was offering up his child when God intervened. Satan is constantly trying to wipe God off the planet to hold the fallen angels in his Trap, But God so loves ALL the fallen angels that he sent his only begotten son to deliver the "good news."
From the beginning of time, and ALL around the world, no matter which civilization you research, and even today, Satan has had and has his followers performing "blood sacrifice" unto him: this is Satan's covenant.
All religions are of Satan; if this is true, then at one point or another they were ALL involved in blood sacrifice; and yes history proves this, and it continues today, unaware by most involved in religion. Deny it if you wish but members of your religion are shedding blood. Just because you denounce them, THEY are still of your religion: "you are your brother's keeper".
Satan clothed Adam & Eve with "the skins of animals," which required blood shedding. Abel was deceived into offering a blood sacrifice to LORD God; and the Cain was manipulated into offering his brother as a blood sacrifice. Satan's religons require blood (Psalms 16:4 and 1Kings 18:26-28). Then there is the blood of circumcision in Exodus 4:24-26; and in Exodus 12:1-51, they were told to put blood on the doors, to be passed over, as Satan slay ALL the first born male children in Egypt. Reading Hebrews 9:18-23, we see that Satan requires Israel to sanctify things under the old covenant with blood: and in Hebrews 9:7 and Leviticus 16:1-34, Satan required a high priest before him, once a year, with blood. Then there was Herod murdering ALL the children, 2 years and younger, while trying to kill Jesus, an innocent child, and then later sacrificed as an innocent man. (STOP THE KILLING! There is no justifiable cause.)
Reading Luke 2:42-43, "and when Jesus was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast." And as Jesus approached the city, he could hear an unusual sound emanating from behind the walls, a noise like a baby crying. It was the collective screaming of animals being sacrificed; the drainage ditches and pavement of the city running red; over 500,000 people would be there for the "Feast of the Passover," sacrificing thousands of animals in a senseless blood frenzy.
Jesus put an end to this blood sacrifice by "offering up himself" (Hebrews 7:27); that animal sacrifice is a sin (Hebrews 9:25-26). Reading 1Corinthians 5:8, "Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth." "To love God with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." (Mark 12:33) And to Jesus, the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain." (Hebrews 12:24-26)
Satan sinned from the beginning, and for this purpose was the son of God manifest, that Jesus might reveal the evil works of Satan, thereby destroying the works of Satan; and making a show of them openly, he spoiled Satan's principalities and powers, triumphing over them. (1John 3:8 an Col 2:15)
God wants to remove us from this dominion of darkness, and transfer us back into His Kingdom. (Col 1:13) And to this end, the true gospel of the kingdom is being preached in all the world, for a witness unto all nations, marking the beginning of the end times. And the devil, Satan, has come down, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time, as the end of days and the beginning of sorrows is here. And Satan is going to create such a great tribulation, such as has not been seen since the beginning of the world, to this time: but for the "elects sake" those days will be shortened and the bloodline will be saved.
One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
