Running Satan out of town
An interesting verse in 2 Corinthians 4:4 reads thus: "In
whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,
lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should
shine unto them."
This being, called the god of this world is known
elsewhere as the prince of this world and the prince of the power of
the air, and is in actuality a created being called Lucifer.
We read again of Lucifer in Isaiah 14:12-15: "How art thou
fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down
to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!"
Verse 13: "For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend
into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon
the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:"
Verse 14: "I will ascend above the heights of the clouds: I
will be like the most High."
It has been pointed out that people involved in Satanism and
witchcraft in most cases deny that Lucifer and Satan are the same being, as
Lucifer is worshipped as part of a dualistic godhead by such groups as the
Freemasons and the Mormons in the upper degrees. This of course is not known to
people involved in the lower degrees of these groups.
We hasten to point out that this particular scripture in
Isaiah 14 makes it clear that Lucifer is in no way God, for with his five I
wills it is clear that he is trying to take over from God.
Verse 15 also makes it clear: "Yet thou shalt be brought
down to hell, to the sides of the pit."
This could never happen to God or Jesus and therefore we
recognise that Lucifer and Satan are the same being, sometimes called the old
dragon, the devil and even that old serpent, in the book of Revelation 20:2.
An article taken from the NZ Herald, 4 January 2002,
"...Perhaps it was common in medieval Europe, but rarely in
the modern age do elected officials set out to exorcise Satan from an entire
But it has happened to the seaside town of Inglis, Florida,
and while some of its residents may feel closer to God, others are less
Caught in the controversy is mayor Carolyn Risher, who
thought she was helping everyone by telling the devil to get out of town.
She was fretting about teens taking drugs and having sex, and
about September 11.
First, she issued a proclamation on official letterhead: "Be
it known from this day forward that Satan, ruler of darkness, giver of evil,
destroyer of what is good and just, is now, nor ever again will be, a part of
this town of Inglis."
Then, with a local priest, she posted the proclamation on the
outskirts of town. That, Risher thought, would be that. Inglis, population 1400,
would be blessed only by God.
But Risher forgot that Government officials in the US are not
meant to mix religion and official business.
The American Civil Liberties Union says she has egregiously
violated this principle of separation of church and state, and is threatening to
Risher is unmoved by the furore.
She had been impelled to act after watching the twin towers
fall in New York, she said.
'We need to be ready to meet our maker. If our churches
band together and pray, our nation and our town can be a godly nation and a
godly town.'..." (emphasis added).
2 Chronicles 7:14, certainly seems to verify what she is
saying: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear
from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
It is therefore clear that President George Bush will need to
renounce his membership in the Skull and Bones Society, which is Luciferian in
its foundations, and take a strong stand as a born-again believer he claims to
be, and call his nation America, to do exactly what the Bible says.
At that point, let us pray that God will withhold His hand of
judgement, which He has promised that country through various of his servants
including one David Wilkerson in New York.
