Startling, but Exciting Revelations about the World we Live in. Part Five of Six: Propaganda
by Jack Vorster
3/11/2011 / Christian Living
We are born, we live for a period of time and then we die. For the duration of the period that we live our lifestyles are founded on nothing more than the information we have absorbed. This information can be grouped into two categories, namely, propaganda and truth. Unfortunately, the former is the one that dominates and forms the basis for our individual beliefs and that of the entire world.
The question is where does the propaganda (the means of establishing a doctrine or practice) emanate from? Not to be confused with formal education, which is based on truth and prepares us for our careers, propaganda usually applies to the presentation of unproven ideas or theories and imparting it as fact. In effect, it purports to give currency to a lie with the intention of propagating such lie until it is believed by the masses. And there is solid purpose behind it.
It is not possible for any human being to conjure up such untruths without the assistance of spiritual forces, as already made clear in PART FOUR of this article. Human beings have become literal puppets on a string to these spiritual entities. So if you hear someone say, "Belief in a God is for gullible, uninformed dummies who have never heard of science and are simply looking for a crutch in life", then know that such a statement is not a sign of dumbness, but rather a clear indication that such a person has fallen under the spell of wickedness in high places. Where did it all begin?
Satanel - meaning, "angel of God" - was the very first and most powerful Angel created by God. Satanel was also known as the morning star, as "Lucifer," meaning "the light bearer."
He was described (in Ezekiel 28:12-17) as follows:
A model of perfection; full of wisdom and perfect in beauty; every precious stone adorned him; anointed and ordained as a guardian cherub; had his presence on the holy mount of God; blameless in his ways until wickedness was found in him; he became filled with violence and sinned; was driven out in disgrace from the mount of God and expelled; became proud because of his beauty; his wisdom became corrupted because of his splendour; and he was thrown to the Earth.
He declared, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High." (Isaiah 14)
God changed his name to Satan, meaning "angel of Hell". The Earth's atmosphere became the area of his activity as well as that of a third of all the angels he had influenced to rebel against God.
Before Adam was created, Satan took charge of the Earth and the generations of social orders of creatures that existed at that time. He corrupted these creatures, causing perversions among them and also systematically destroyed the Earth. It is believed by many Bible scholars that the corrupted creatures of that era form part of the huge army of disembodied spirits known as demons at work in the world today under the command of Satan.
As a result, that particular world was destroyed by God, leaving it completely submerged under water and in utter darkness and chaos. The Bible seems to indicate that the Earth was also turned upside down, which offers an explanation for the fossilized remains of creatures deeply imbedded and found at the poles.
The very first verse of the Bible reads, "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." This was the world that Satan corrupted, causing God to destroy it and all the creatures in it.
The second verse of the Bible describes the state of the Earth AFTER this total destruction. "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." It was then that the RECREATION of the Earth began in order to prepare it for that brand new species called MAN, which was created by God in His image and after His likeness.
Throughout the Bible reference is made to the existence of social orders in the world prior to Adam, but in-depth details are omitted. One can only assume that the reason for this is because former eras of life on this planet are of no concern to the new world and the new creatures within it. I suppose it can be likened to demolishing a building in order to build a new one on the same site. The history of the demolished building and its former occupants will not play a role in the future of the new building and its purposes at all.
(In the next part, PART SIX, I will go into just a little detail as to why Satan and evil spirits were left to ply their influence on the Earth and the new creatures within it.)
God then gave man total dominion over the Earth. Along with this guardianship He gave man only one law to keep that of obedience. Man was to live forever in a perfect world free of sicknesses and diseases and strife. We were to live for God's pleasure and to have fellowship with Him.
And then came the very first act of propaganda in the recreated world. Satan knew that if he could cause Adam to break that law he would be in a position to control man and, therefore, dominion over the Earth and its inhabitants would become his. He would then be free to bring about destruction and death to this new God-like creature and the world assigned to it.
The first line of propaganda went as follows: "And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." They believed him, ate of the fruit and died to God. They've been their own gods ever since.
I think we are all familiar with what happened. Man suffered spiritual death, meaning that he became spiritually separated and without further fellowship with God. Man and the whole Earth became cursed as a result of Satan's hand of interference.
Physical death became a reality for man. Ever since that day Satan has been in control of the minds of men and the Earth, causing death and destruction to both. Evolution, science, unbelief and blasphemy are at the forefront of his propaganda. And man is swallowing it hook, line and sinker causing him to say, "There is no God. We are our own gods. It's Hollywood or bust. Let's make merry. Let's make war. Let's steal, kill and destroy. Today we live, tomorrow we die."
Today, what man thinks he thinks, is not necessarily his own "thinks".
(You are still waiting for those wings to fly like an eagle. My apologies. You will definitely receive them in PART SIX, which will be the FINAL part.)
