(2006) How powerful is the leader of this world's affairs? Christ Jesus noted that Satan the Devil is the ruler of this world. He is the force whom people of every nation are being misguided by his unseen presence, to obey his thought injections to ignore what the Word warns concerning the Creator's Laws and the offer of undeserved kindness to those seeking the truth, and to blindly disregard the warning of impending cataclysmic destruction that the inhabitants of this world will soon face. John 14:30 "I will not talk with you much longer, because the ruler of the world is coming. He has no power over Me." Ephesians 2:2 "in which you previously walked according to this worldly age, according to the ruler of the atmospheric domain, the spirit now working in the disobedient."
Satan seeks to stay in power through his human confederates, but how much power does he truly hold over his ruling nations of this planet? Not to the degree he would like to have over them. Since he works through human minds by thought injections, his over all theoretic plan to prove to the Creator that he can successfully rule over and guide mankind is lacking in practice of doing so. The hearts of human rulers conjure up thoughts contrary even to Satan's prodding to do other things. This is because of Father Yahweh's divine intervention. Is Father injecting things that bring them closer to the holy side? Or, is Father doing as he did with Pharaoh during Moses service that was to lead the enslaved Israelites out of bondage to Egypt by hardening the hearts of world leaders? By Father's intervention, the world rulers fail to heed some of Satan's inspired thoughts, by taking a course contrary to what their tin god desired in action on their parts.
Behind the scenes during the time of the Exodus from Egypt, Satan tried emphatically to inject the Pharaoh away from chasing after the Israelites, but the Creator hardened Pharaoh's heart so that he would do as Father Yahweh wanted. Against Satan's better judgment Pharaoh listened to what he thought was his own reasoning: "Exodus 14:8
The LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued the Israelites, who were going out triumphantly." The action resulted in a great loss of his military: Exodus 14:23-28 "The Egyptians set out in pursuit—all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his horsemen—and went into the sea after them. Then during the morning watch, the LORD looked down on the Egyptian forces from the pillar of fire and cloud, and threw them into confusion. He caused their chariot wheels to swerve and made them drive with difficulty. "Let's get away from Israel," the Egyptians said, "because the LORD is fighting for them against Egypt!" Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may come back on the Egyptians, on their chariots and horsemen." So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea returned to its normal depth. While the Egyptians were trying to escape from it, the LORD overthrew them in the sea. The waters came back and covered the chariots and horsemen, the entire army of Pharaoh, that had gone after them into the sea. None of them survived."
Just as it happened back then, disregard for Satan's advice, the rulers of the world are being motivated by the Creator's thoughts to bring down Satan's empire so that none of them survive Christ's onslaught to free this planet for his future Kingdom, its subjects, and his Millennial rule. Father Yahweh hardens hearts to bring Her will to fruition and perform miracles that their tin god cannot perform: Exodus 10:1 "[ The Eighth Plague: Locusts ] Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his officials so that I may do these miraculous signs of Mine among them,"
So how is Father using Her power to alter the thinking of Satan's rulers in these end times? And what effect will it have in the coming months?
China is holding more than one trillion in U.S. currency debt. And even though China is presently benefitting from trade with the United States, she has a bur in her side over the Republic of Taiwan. The U.S. continues to commit herself in weapon sales to Taiwan. Because of this ongoing aid to that country, China will put aside profitable trade relations, seeking to devastate the U.S. economy by dumping the U.S. debt it holds on the world market. When this occurs, it will cause a sharp devaluation of the U.S. dollar, and there will be a loss of faith by the world community in the United States economy. Even though this would cause a loss to China on their investment as well, they feel their own economy can withstand the harm that would result from such an action in breaking the financial back of the United States. However, this action would affect only approximately 3 percent of the U.S. economy, but with other factors involved, such as the amounts of debt to finance the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, and the ever growing national disaster relief funds, the United States will feel the quake of such an action on China's part. Next, Father will motivate the leaders of OPEC to change and price oil in Euro Dollars. This will be because the confidence once felt in the U.S. will have taken a drastic change for the worse.
Things will then quickly advance to higher fuel prices. This will result in all tangible goods going up in price. The end result will be disgruntled nations of people enslaved in trying to make ends meet. There will be a backlash felt around the globe as people come to realize that hope for a brighter more secure future has become lost in governmental mishandling of world economics and foreign policies. Satan's worldwide empire will begin to crumble away as rioting and volatile conflicts erupt around the globe.
Satan sees all of these things about to give birth, yet he's powerless to get his world rulers in sinch. He seeks to do the opposite of what Father has laid forth in prophecy of the Word. In a last ditch effort to try and save his kingdom, he'll walk straight into Father's plan for the anti-Christ. Satan will take steps to try and rectify the world economy, but he'll fail miserably. Isaiah 17:12 "[ Judgment against the Nations ] Ah! The roar of many peoples— they roar like the roaring of the seas. The raging of the nations— they rage like the raging of mighty waters." Isaiah 5:30 "On that day they will roar over it, like the roaring of the sea. When one looks at the land, there will be darkness and distress; light will be obscured by clouds."
Proverbs 20:2 "A king's terrible wrath is like the roaring of a lion; anyone who provokes him endangers himself." Revelation 10:3 "and he cried out with a loud voice like a roaring lion. When he cried out, the seven thunders spoke with their voices." Isaiah 44:6 [ No God Other Than Yahweh ] This is what the LORD, the King of Israel and its Redeemer, the LORD of Hosts, says: I am the first and I am the last. There is no God but Me."
1 Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord's work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."
Genesis 22:17 "I will indeed bless you and make your offspring as numerous as the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your offspring will possess the gates of their enemies."
