"Burden [warning] to Babylon and Israel."
This Bible Study is written by Roger Christopherson, and it's transcription/ location is provided by http://www.theseason.org
This chapter of Isaiah is about the fall of the Babylon of Revelation, and from it comes the raising of God's children. In this chapter we will see what happens to Satan himself through the Millennium years, and we will see how God will place Satan, who is the Assyrian, in his proper place. God restores His children by defeating Satan.
Isaiah 14:1 "For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob."
"Jacob" is the natural seed, and it includes all of the tribes of both the house of Judah and the house of Israel. God will choose all of the tribes, and this is made very clear in Revelation 21, and all will be allied with Christ. Then the kings and queens of the nations [Gentile nations] will all be allied with Christ. This is the time of the Millennium age, when all people on the face of the earth will worship Jesus Christ as the Messiah. Jesus Christ will establish His kingdom right here on earth, or where ever God is, there heaven is, and Jesus will rule His kingdom from mount Zion in Jerusalem. The "strangers" are the Gentiles, and God has a love for all of His children, Gentile as well as Jacob.
Isaiah 14:2 "And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the Lord for servants and handmaids: and they shall take captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors."
All the Gentile nation will assist the tribes in their re-establishing back in their own land. This is what is stated in Ezekiel 44, where God's elect, the Zadok, will reign and rule as part of their inheritance. Taking captive and making other servants is not as we consider it today in the age of the flesh. When you plant a seed of God's Word in the mind of another, and the Holy Spirit then works on that mind, you have taken that person captive in the service of the Lord. There is nothing wrong with this. We should all be proud to be servants and slaves in the service of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Because of your love for God you are taken prisoner, and that is how it should be. This is the slave and servant order that is talked about here.
Isaiah 14:3 "And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,"
The time that the Lord shall take away Babylon and confusion is on the day of the Lord. That is when the seventh trumpet sounds, and all evil rudiments are removed from the face of the earth. On that day all people living in the flesh will be changed instantly into their new incorruptible bodies, and with Satan removed to the pit, the Lord shall give true peace and rest. On this day, the firstfruits, the elect that refused to bow to Satan and take his name and number will receive their just reward, and the others who in ignorance fell to Satan the Antichrist will have to wait to the end of the thousand year period, and then be judged on the merits of their works. This is documented in Revelation 20:11-15.
Isaiah 14:4 "That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, "How hath the oppressor ceased? the golden city ceased!"
Again, this is the time when the Antichrist, who is Satan, is ruling on the earth just prior to Christ's return, and it is a warning to them that will take up with Satan's world order. The question here is; "How did it happen?"
On that first day of the Millennium age, the world will be surprised as to how weak the power structure of this world is. People will be surprised when they see how easily they were misled by Satan and His children, the Kenites. On that day you will see how poorly knit together the New World order was woven together, as it falls apart quickly. When Jesus Christ returns, and all the people can see clearly and understand God's Love for them, Satan's power will vanish.
Isaiah 14:5 "The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers."
God is promising you here that Satan's religious system is going to be broken and those ruling in his service will be brought down. It is God that shall do this, and not some military force of man. Friend, the good news is that it shall come to pass in our generation, and we know this by Jesus' own words in Matthew 24:32-34.
Matthew 24:32 "Now learn the parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:"
Matthew 24:33 "So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that summer is near: even at the doors."
Matthew 24:34 "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."
The end time generation started when that shoot was set forth, that fig tree which was planted in 1948 when the Jews returned to Palestine to set up their tiny nation of "Israel".
Isaiah 14:6 "He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth."
In other words, in the prior verse the Lord has broken the staff of the wicked one who is Satan.
Isaiah 14:7 "The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing."
We know that when Satan is cast out of heaven, as recorded in Revelation 12:7-9, there will be singing and silence in heaven. That singing and silence on earth will not come until the coming of the Lord, and the "day of the Lord". That day will be the final day of this earth age of the flesh, when Satan is cast into the pit.
Revelation 12:7 "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels."
Revelation 12:8 "And prevailed not, neither was there place found any more in heaven."
Revelation 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
It is at this time that the true peace comes to heaven.
Revelation 12:10 "And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night."
This then is the time of the woes to them that are on the earth for the five month period spoken of in Revelation 9.
Satan knows that he has but a short time before his confinement for the Millennium period. When this period of deception comes to a close, and the whole world has been deceived by him, Satan will be cast into the pit for the thousand year period.
Isaiah 14:8 "Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, `Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.' "
God is using trees as symbols to relate His message to us. When Jesus healed the blind man in Mark 8:22-26 many say that Jesus' statement made about trees walking shows that he was tired and disoriented.
Mark 8:24 "And he looked up, and said, "I see men as trees, walking."
Jesus statement here shows that He understood the prophetic utterances in relationship to trees symbolizing entities [people]. Jesus was referring to Ezekiel 31, a time when the house of Israel was starting to lean on Pharaoh king of Egypt. This Pharaoh is called "the Assyrian" in verse three, and in the Hebrew text, the word is "teashshur" and is nothing more then an old box tree, or cypress tree calling itself a cedar in Lebanon. The cedars were the strongest and longest living tree in the forest, and this is an example of how Satan will present himself when he returns.
Ezekiel 31:3 "Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs."
So we see that one of Satan's names is "the Assyrian" [box tree], and he is trying to disguise himself as a cedar, which he is not.
Ezekiel 31:7 "Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by great waters."
In other words, this old "teashshur" [Satan] is fallen down and in the abyss, and the people are happy because they are not being bothered by him.
Ezekiel 31:8 "The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty."
This verse tells us when Satan came to his greatness in this earth age. The "cedars of Lebanon" are always symbolic of God's children. God is pointing out that each type of tree is different that the others, in other words, the cedar is not like the oak, nor like the cypress. All the trees leaves fade and fall, but the evergreen [cedar] stands green and solid all year around. This symbolizes that when you are in Christ, your strength stands solid all the time. Satan was the most beautiful creature of all God's creation, and his description of his beauty is given to us in Ezekiel 28.
Ezekiel 31:9 "I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him."
"Eden" spoken of here is the "Garden of Eden"
Ezekiel 31:10 "Therefore thus saith the Lord God; `Because thou hast lifted up thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs , and his heart is lifted up in his height;"
God didn't raise or elevate Satan to his heights, but Satan lifted himself up to declare himself equal to God. This pinpoints the sin that caused Satan's fall, it is his pride; "his heart is lifted up in his height". This pride will cause the destruction of Satan following the Millennium age.
Ezekiel 31:11 "I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one of the heathen [nations]; he shall surely deal with him: I have driven him out for his wickedness."
This identifies Satan as just another man, a plain old box tree who is trying to present himself as something he is not. It was by his great beauty that he deceived the others from the garden of Eden to the time of Christ's return. It is through his deception of Eve in the garden, that Satan's son Cain was born, and we have had those Kenite children with us to this very day.
We will see in Isaiah 14 all the different names that Satan uses as he plays the different role of deceiving mankind as he tries to play being God.
Isaiah 14:9 "Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stireth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations."
"Hell" is Satan's grave, and the "dead" in the Hebrew text are the "Rephaim". While the Kenites are the offspring of Cain, the son born from the sexual union between Eve and Satan in the Garden of Eden, the "Raphaim" are the offspring of those fallen angels that came to earth to marry and breed with the daughters of men, as recorded in Genesis 6.
Genesis 6:1 "And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,"
Genesis 6:2 "That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose."
The progeny of the fallen angels with the daughters of Adam are called "Nephilim" [Ne-phil'-im], which means "fallen ones". They were the giants of old and were known by many other names such as "gibbor" meaning "heros", Hittites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Jebusites, and another of their names is "Rephaims". We will see later in Isaiah 26:14 that there is no resurrection for these Rephaims, for they are spiritually deceased, and that is why they are called "the dead".
In Genesis 14 we can tell that there was a second eruption of the Rephaim that took place after the flood of Noah's day, for these offspring were living in the days of Abraham, and were one of the five peoples that were part of Sodom and Gomorrha. We know that the Rephaim have no chance for eternal life, because in the book of Jude, they forfeited their eternal life when they left their place of habitation, and came to the daughter of men.
Jude 6 "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day."
Jude 7 "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha , and the cities about them, in like manner giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."
Their sin was their leaving their habitation. Now back to Isaiah 14:9. Satan used these fallen angels for his purposes, and when they were gone, he could care less about them. Satan will promote anyone to power that will give him praise, and after mankind bows to him, he knows he will have company when he goes to the fiery hell.
Isaiah 14:10 "All they shall speak and say unto thee, `Art thou also become weak as we; art thou become like unto us?"
"All they" which are the Rephaim, will say to Satan, `Art thou also become weak as we?' Of course Satan will become as the Rephaim, for he also has the sentence of death upon him.
Ezekiel 28:18 "Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee."
God is the consuming fire that will consume him and turn him to ashes at the end of the Millennium age. However God is allowing him to do a little more testing on the children of God, before that dooms day of Satan comes.
Isaiah 14:11 "Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee."
This is a statement, an idiom of degradation. it is a statement of death on a garbage heap with maggets devouring him. There could not be a stronger idiom for death, for the worms eat only what is dead. God is saying that when you give pomp to Satan that is what is going to happen to you.
Now we will see the enemy of God and His children that will cause this to happen to. God didn't create Satan to be evil, or any of the angels that fell to be His enemy. They became that way of their own accord.
Isaiah 14:12 "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!"
How did Satan, O Lucifer, weaken the nations? He set ten nation in charge and pulled them away from God, and then claimed to be God. Satan played the role of God for them. This name "Lucifer" in the Hebrew tongue means "morning star". It identifies Satan himself in the role that he will be playing when these events of the end times come to pass. This tells us that Satan will be identifying himself as the "morning star", and trying to pass himself off as Jesus Christ, and most Christians will believe him.
"O' Lucifer" in the Strong's Hebrew dictionary, is number 1966. "Heylel, hay-lale', from 1984, (in the sense of brightness); the morning star-lucifer." Lets go to # 1984; "Halal, haw-lal', a prime root, to be clear (orig. of sound, but usually of color), to make a show or to boast, thus to be clamorously foolish; to rave." This is why Satan is called the son of the morning, or the morning star.
Jesus Christ is the true morning star, and Satan is the fake that claims he is the morning star. In the manuscripts it identifies this Lucifer as the one that has fallen to the earth. Satan will in fact be residing here on earth, and not just his evil spirit as is amongst us today. He will be claiming to be the savior coming to rapture you out of here, and if you are looking for that rapture, Satan will provide exactly what you need to satisfied your religious traditions. Satan is coming to play God, and are you going to run to him when he comes?
Satan will claim to be everything that Christ ever said that He was, and those that are ignorant of the Word of God will be in trouble.
Satan will promise many things, and he will have his realm, the fallen angels, the Kenites, and all the false traditions and doctrines bring you to him. That is why you need to know the signs of our times, and the common sense to identify them when the come to pass.
Isaiah 14:13 "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:"
This is the "morning star" Lucifer that is speaking here. This is what Lucifer is thinking to himself. Lucifer is thinking that he is better then God and all his Children. The "sides of the north" is the throne of God. This will be right here on earth in Jerusalem, where Jesus will return and set up his eternal kingdom, however before Jesus' temple is built, Satan will set up his rule in the exact location.
Friend, if you do not have the warning from God as to how this earth age will end and the signs that lead up to this time, you will be delivered up to Satan and rejoice in your betrothal to him. You will not be part of the bride of Christ, but taken as Jesus warned in Matthew 24:19; "And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!"
This means that you became betrothed to the wrong husband, and taken at the sixth trumpet, and not the seventh.
Isaiah 14:14 "I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the MOST HIGH." This is still this fake morning star Lucifer talking.
The "clouds" are the congregation, those that call themselves Christians. Satan thinks himself to be better then "the MOST HIGH" who is our almighty Father. It is Lucifer that will be in the clouds saying I have come to rapture you away. Friend, you will witness Satan's return in your physical body, and see all the super miracles that God has placed at Satan's disposal, and it is to test you in the flesh.
When our Savior Jesus Christ returns, you will be changed instantly into your incorruptible body, and thus what ever you see and witness will be not in the flesh. This is why you should know that anyone that is claiming to be Christ and trying to get your worship while you are in the flesh, is a fake. This whole idea of a rapture, or snatching away of the saints before the seventh and last trump is a lie. This any moment doctrine is a doctrine of demons, and it came from a vision of a mentally ill woman, Margaret McDonald, in 1830, in Scotland. This "any moment doctrine" [called rapture] came to America by the Brethren denomination, and sold to the people through the teaching in several of the well known seminaries, who bought it hook line and sinker.
When Margaret McDonald came to her senses even she claimed it to be evil. Today it is accepted as truth, when in fact it is nothing but a cursed vision that will cause the downfall of most Christians living in this final generation. When Satan claims to be the Christ, the MOST HIGH GOD, most Christians will believe him for their traditions and pastors have taught them to accept him.
In I Thessalonians 4, Paul was writing a warning letter to the people on the subject of "Where are the dead?" What happens to your loved ones that have died in the flesh and been laid in the grave. The promoters of the rapture theory have taken this chapter four, and twisted the subject and the object to back up their "any moment doctrine".
Paul saw how that early church misread what he was saying, and quickly wrote a second letter to set the record straight as to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We know it was hurriedly because Timothy and Silas were still there. This second letter is called II Thessalonians, and in chapter two Paul speaks very simple as if he was talking to children. He says, I want to talk to you about our gathering back to the true Christ.
II Thessalonians 2:1 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,"
II Thessalonians 2:2 "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter, as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand."
II Thessalonians 2:3 "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,"
Paul is telling you and I that "the day of the Lord", of Jesus Christ's return to earth is not going to happen until the "son of perdition", who is Satan, has come to earth first. "By any means" includes the teaching of a pastor that is promoting this doctrines of demons, or the writings of men with high degrees, or even your family members that are sold on a fly-away theory.
II Thessalonians 2:4 "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
Jesus will not return to set up his kingdom until after Lucifer, who goes by the name of the devil, Satan, the son of perdition and many other name stands in the holy place in Jerusalem claiming to be God. This is exactly what Isaiah said in Isaiah 14:14. Satan, or Lucifer or what ever you desire to call him, will play the role of God on the side of the north which is on mount Zion. Paul goes on to remind them that when he was with them, he told them these things in detail.
II Thessalonians 2:7 "For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way."
This verse throws off many in their studies and understanding because they do not know what a transitive verb is in the Greek. That means that it must revert back to what the subject and object being carried are, to understand, "only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way." Satan must work his iniquity first before the true morning Star comes, and then Satan will be throne into the pit.
II Thessalonians 2:8 "And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming:" Satan is destroyed by the sword of Christ, that comes forth out of His mouth."
II Thessalonians 2:9 "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders."
Friend, you will see all the signs and lying wonders before you see the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and Revelations 9:5, 10 tells us that those works will be allowed to go on for five months. This alone turns the rapture doctrine into one of Satan's deceptive lies, and a doctrine of demons.
Isaiah 14:15 "Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit." After Satan has served his five months as the deceiver of the people, it is God that shall throw him into the pit."
Isaiah 14:16 "They that see thee shall shall narrowly look upon the, and consider thee, saying. "Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;"
These are all those people that considered themselves to be Christians and were part of the rapture doctrine that shall look upon Satan in the pit. They are going to see Satan there and think on what they have done, and how they have been deceived. Satan will play the role of man, the Son of God, and the entire earth will believe him and be deceived, all that is except God elect, and those sealed in their minds with the truth before Satan's coming. Today Satan is doing much of his work from the pulpits of churches that are deep in the traditions of men. Today the message going forth from most pulpits is based on man's traditions and not the Word of God.
Isaiah 14:17 "That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?"
This is what those Christians that were deceived by Satan will say when they see him in the pit. They will see that Satan is not God, but a created being just like them. Satan doesn't care about people, he only cares about himself, as he is taken up by his own pride.
Isaiah 14:18 "All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house."
This is to say, the kings of the earth at least had a proper burial. They were given honors and tribute for their positions. However this is saying that Satan will not have a decent burial. Why?
Isaiah 14:19 "But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet."
The "abominable branch" is "teashshur", got it?, just a plain old box cypress. Remember from Deuteronomy 32 that his stones [the Kenites] are not our stones [God's children].. The sword that cuts him down is none other then the Word of God that we are studying. We know this from Revelation 1:16.
Revelation 1:16 "And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength."
Isaiah 14:20 "Thou shalt not be jopined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned."
No one will join with Satan in burial because he will not have one. In other words, his seed will be cut off. This is in reference to the parable of the tares given in Matthew 13:38-43. Why? Matthew 13:38 "The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;"
We know these tares as the Kenites, the offspring of Cain, the son of Satan through Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Matthew 13:39 "The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels."
This identifies who the enemy of God is, and it tells us when the harvest will be. It will be at the end of this earth age of the flesh. We see that it will be the angels of God that gather up all of Satan's children, and not one of God's children will be lost at that time. It doesn't matter where you are, even in outer space, for God knows where each of his children is, and there will be a separation made when this earth age is over.
Matthew 13:40 "As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world [earth age]."
Matthew 13:41 "The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity:"
Matthew 13:42 "And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."
Even a Kenite when hearing the Word of God can become a child of God, and cease being a tare, when believing on Jesus name in repentance.
Isaiah 14:21 "Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities."
God is saying woe to those that build house on to house, and build their cities, why? because it brings the population together to breed disease, and violence. After the Millennium age this old world will be a very good place to live in. This time is outlined in detail in Revelation 21. Remember what Cain was from Genesis 4:17, he was the builder of cities.
Isaiah 14:22 "For I will rise up against them," saith the Lord of hosts, "and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew," saith the Lord."
There will be no more "son of the morning", and remnant known as "the Kenites" the progeny of Satan through Cain. God will remove all those that rebel against Him. God has a place for all of those that rise up against His Word.
Isaiah 14:23 "I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction," saith the Lord of hosts."
"The bittern" is a water foul, and "Besom" is a bush that brooms are made out of. This then is saying that rather then using a broom to sweep with, God is going to make His clean sweep of all those that rebel against him, and are evil with His spoken Word. At Christ's coming all evil elements or rudiments will be taken from the earth.
II Peter 3:12 "Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat:'
Those things that are melted away are the evil rudiments that are filling the world today, and it that which shall be done away with at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Notice that God lets there be no doubt as to who it is that does the destroying, it is Jesus Christ at His return to earth on the day of the Lord.
II Peter 3:13 "Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness."
II Peter 3:14 "Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of Him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
This is the hope and promise that we have in our salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 14:24 "The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, "Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:"
"The Lord of hosts" is our heavenly Father, and when He swears something it shall come to pass exactly as He declared it. We can count on it, and there is no need to doubt what God promises. What is going to happen in our generation will take place exactly as God has said through His prophets.
Isaiah 14:25 "That I will break the Assyrian in My land, and upon My mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders."
God's land is on mount Zion in Jerusalem, and as we read above the "Assyrian" is Satan. This is going to happen in the near future. Both Sargon and Sennacrieb were types for the Antichrist, but This name "Assyrian" was just one of the twelve titles given to the power that is called the "Antichrist". Some of the others were "The king of fierce countenance, the vile person, the son of perdition, The wicked one, the lawless one, Lucifer, son of the morning star, the king of Babylon", and so on.
Each name destribing one of the roles that Satan will play when he is here on earth deceiving all the people. This is given in the footnotes of Daniel 7:8 of your Companion Bible. When Christ's feet touch down on the mount of Olives [Zion} there will not be one stone left standing upon another of that temple that Satan will build to honor himself.
Isaiah 14:26 "This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations;"
God is saying that His hand is stretched out, and it is He that is in control of everthing that comes to pass. You can take comfort in the fact that what is written shall come to pass. Every one of His prophecies, even down to the completion of the new world order that we have today. Christ declared that it would come to pass in the generation of the fig tree, and the order has become a reality since that tiny nation Israel was established. In fact it was through the Belfour agreement of the United Nations that Israel became established. This is why Jesus declared that it is absolutely necessary for all Christians to learn the parable of the fig tree.
Matthew 24:32 "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:"
Matthew 24:33 "So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors."
Matthew 24:34 "Verily I say unto you, "This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."
When you learn the parable of the fig tree, and understand who the Kenites are, and by what means the function and carry out the work of Satan, all of the rest will come into focus.
Isaiah 14:27 "For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and His hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?"
When the Lord makes a statement as to what He shall bring to pass, there is no one that can disannul it from happening. Do you think that Satan, or the United Nations can change what God has declared? Of course it is foolish even to consider such a thing. If you really want trouble then go ahead and try. Friend, it is so much easier to abide in God's ways and receive His blessings then going the ways of the world. God's arm is stretched out, and He will allow you to go what ever ways you desire, even to destruction.
When you are trying to live in God's ways and it seems that God is punishing you, remember that God only corrects the ones that He loves. Be thankful for God's ways of correction, for through that correction you can also see His love for you. God's hand is out to you, and He is in complete control of all that happens. This is why it is important for you to let God know you love Him.
Isaiah 14:28 "In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden."
God has a special meaning for that year that Ahaz died. King Ahaz ruled for sixteen years, and what God is declaring and asking for is that you love Him. When you have gone as far as you think you can go, then that is the time to lean on Him. This king Ahaz did not do that, he did his leaning on the Philistines rather then turning to God. The Philistines were in no position to help king Ahaz, and God allowed the Assyrians to overtake him.
Satan is death [the Assyrian] and God will release Satan on the earth and it is important for us to know this and not run to the Philistines of our generation, and seek help where there is none to give. Now is the time and place to seek the help from where it can be given, from God's Word sealed in our minds, so when the Assyrian arrives we have our spiritual walls in place and have our protective armor on. That armor is the Word of God that allows us to know what is going to happen so that we will not be deceived. Watch out for the ones that you lean on.
Isaiah 14:29 "Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent."
The "cockatrice" is a viper or snake. Satan played the role of a "serpent" while tempting Eve to fall in the Garden of Eden. The fruit of that sexual union was Cain, and his children the Kenites. Today it is important to know how to identify the fruit of that cockatrice [Satan], for their mission is to lead you to their father Satan, who is coming very shortly in the role of the Antichrist, or instead of Christ.
The power of Satan is blanketing the earth today as the world is preparing for the coming of the false Messiah. Stop and consider the way that life is being degraded in our generation, when murders and violence is out of control, drugs are frying the brains of countless millions, and the moral standards of even the president and those in leadership roles are little more that that of a dog. It is time to keep your eyes open and identify those wicked thing that are done so that you are not smitten by Satan's deception and tricks upon his arrival.
Isaiah 14:30 "And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant."
first born of the poor" means "the poorest of the
poor" or better said 'humble before God". This verse
looks forward to the fulfillment by Messiah (verse 32) when He returns
at the seventh trump.
"Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times."
