CEC Canada’s Introductory speech part 2: What are the most effective words that Satan has used in the past to deceive man, whereby he inadvertently would end up deceiving the whole world?.
Once more, my name is Jacob Friesen, The most important statement I made in the Introductory speech was in reference to 1seeing through the eyes of God, the topic for today can truly only be identified by God himself. Why, because it comes out of an invisible world which man with the naked eye cannot see. Although 2spirits can possess man and or take on 3the forms of man they cannot be seen by the naked eye, 4they can be known and identified, however, only by those who have the 5ability to discern between good and evil; Can this be learned, the answer is yes: it is a matter of exercising our senses, that is, sharpening them in the understanding and application of God’s word that will empower us to discern between good and evil. There are good spirits and there are evil spirits, we know the 6good spirits as God’s holy angels and as ministering spirits, and 7evil spirits as Satan’s angels as his devils. Satan is 8the god of this world, 9the people that do not know God are his, he is known as a liar, and the father of lies, 10.his work has been identified, it is, he came to steal and to destroy, he uses 11deception through the use of wicked people to keep others from following God, it says if he could he would deceive the very elect.. To do so he offers them 12alternatives that he knows will keep them trapped; Because he knows that people have been given a natural instinct to worship, an instinct that is very difficult to break, he tries to use this instinct to his advantage, he did so with Christ, the very Son of God whom the Father sent to defeat the Devil and to reconcile man back unto God. Christ 13alone has the power and the authority to take back from Devil what belongs to God and to keep it in trust for the Father until the last day 13awhen the Son and all that was put under his authority will be returned to the one who gave that authority, so that God may be all in all. Listen to what the Son has to say regarding his relationship with those whom the Father has given to him: John 10: 1 – 42, v27. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28. And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish; neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. It is 14a spiritual love bond that runs deeper and stronger then any bond man has ever come to know;
What are the most effective words that Satan has used in the past to deceive man, whereby he inadvertently would end up deceiving the whole world? the answer is, because 15man is made to worship it makes sense that it would be worshipping false gods. The first Question then should be, Who were the first false gods he came up with? Here is the shocker, it was our first parents, Adam and Eve, it all happened in the Garden of Eden, here is the account: Genesis chapter three gives us the full history: Let me say this first, Satan stands accused of having deceived the whole world, this then is the beginning that would open the door for man the offspring of Adam to come into the world as gods having the knowledge of both good and evil, this is then identifies the forbidden fruit as the knowledge of good and evil. Genesis chapter 3: (King James Version)
1. Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, has God said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2. And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3. But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.
4. And the serpent said unto the woman, You shall not surely die: 5. For God does know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
God’s makes an announcement:
22. And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 23. Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from where he was taken.
God protects the way to the tree of life and the tree of life:
24. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.
The next shocker: Adam the moment he fell recognized his fallen state; He knew both God and His good, however he did not know evil, not until after his fall: The other side of the coin is man ever since has come into this world without the knowledge of God and his Good leaving him to live by the 16dictates of his flesh, a 17life of toil and suffering until day he returns to dust from which he came.
The big question is, What did Satan do to have man trust him and his lie rather then his God and His good? Adam’s wife Eve gave this answer to God: Genesis 3: 13. And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
What does it mean to be beguiled? Satan known as the Deceiver and a seducer, deceived Eve by putting her belief into doubt and seduced her by leading her to believe that she could be as god: To seduce means to plant a seed, a seed that begins life the moment it has found its resting place, no different then the sperm of man in the womb of a woman. As a baby is the fruit of the seed, so this world is the fruit of the seed Satan seduced Eve with, she is called the mother of all living: Satan is also known as 18the Tempter, the first work under this name that we know of is when he had Eve tempt Adam and he did eat: Ever since, Adam the man who was 19given charge to look after God’s creation stands blamed as the one who brought sin and death into the world, the Apostle Paul moved by the Holy Spirit wrote Romans 5:12. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Having taken Adam’s 20authority from him, and having gained the whole world, the question now is what has he done and what will he do to keep the world from turning back to the one and Living God 21who made man for himself and for his pleasure. The most devastating thing he accomplished is 22to deceive whole nations by representing himself as an angel of light and thereby deceiving and seducing leaders to lead whole nations astray, how did he do this, by giving them their own demonic gods to worship. Here is a list of those nations and people, and it most be said, the spirits of these gods have not stopped working, they are working harder then ever to keep men from knowing the one true and living God, this time 23by keeping them blind so that they cannot see the glorious gospel of Christ, who came to seek and to save the lost. Here is a list of those nations and people: all the gods of Egypt Ex. 12: 12, gods of the Amorites Judg. 6: 10, the gods of Syria, Judg 10: 6, the gods of Sidon, Judg 10: 6, the gods of Moab, Judg 10: 6. the gods of the children of Ammon, Judg 10: 6. the gods of the Philistines, the gods of Hamath, 2 Kings 18: 34, Sepharvaim, 2 Kings 18: 34, the gods of Edom, 2 Chr. 25: 20, the gods of Damacus, 2 Chr. 28: 23, Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, 1 Kings 11: 5, Diana the goddess of Ephesus, Acts 19: 24 – 28, 35. This spirit is not dead, counseling experience tells me that the spirit of the Goddess of Diana is alive and well and working, of all the gods and goddesses Diana is the one that is getting the attention of many today, this evil spirit is a seduceress par-non, rumor mills tell us that this spirit is working harder then ever to be raised to take the position of the queen of heaven, Whether true or false - http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?read=19716 there is no queen of heaven and never will be, not Diana nor Mary, it is at best a demonic spirit, regarding Mary she is a saint of God, she is in heaven with 24her Lord, her Son, whom we know as 25the Son of man, as 26the Son of God, as 27God the Son, as 28the Lord Jesus Christ, and last as 29the sent one 30who came to seek and save the lost and 31to take back that which was lost: Adam’s authority. Satan and his angels have been 32condemned, their sentence has been 33identified, their 34reward has been established, it is to be in eternal torment in a lake of fire and brimstone, and so will all that do not turn from him unto the one and true living God. Revelations 20: 10 – 15.
Another devastating effort of Satan is being an 35angel of light using 36false teachers to trap many by bringing them to believe in his lies: Most prevalent and most effective in this is his use of 37false religions; God warns us and says: Matthew 7:15. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Beware means keeping an eye out for so that we do not get trapped: As it is today with the internet and the right of being able to use it freely, Christian watchmen are busy keeping an eye on things, especially so on the work that Satan is doing to cripple the Church and to make it ineffective and powerless by the use of false teachers; God has given us amble warnings and so we surely are without excuse, the biggest warning are these words – if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect – coming from Matthew 24: 24. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
To the elect God says, 2 Corinthians 6: 1 – 18, v17. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing: and I will receive you. Again to the elect God says, Ephesians 5: 1 – 33, v6. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience, and v11. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
God has allowed the world to communicate its ways, I have one question for you, do you believe that God can use parts of your past to his benefit, don’t say no, the life of Israel is a past life then is put before for us for our learning: The biggest movers of knowledge is the internet today, no one can dispute that, in fact we have been specifically told that 33knowledge would be on the increase, surely today it has reached a peak so immense that we can never absorb it all, what we can do however is spread the knowledge that God says will be preached across the whole world before he returns, the internet has made this possible on a massive scale, God is used to doing things with a big bang, so why fear, with that we give to the world a collection of false religions which we found yes on the internet, here is what we did to find it, we put on the search engine these words ‘False religions of the world, and here is what we got: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/false_religions.htm 31 organizations are listed and exposed, we admit, this is not the work of CEC Canada, and so you need to confirm what is said in this document before believing and using the information: Personally I was content with what God had to say to me, have nothing to do with them. Now I must say, in order to be able to do this it would be important that I understand what God’s word was telling me. This would indeed mean to study his word, and so we are instructed in order to be approved of him 2 Timothy 2:15. Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
There is much more, but the intent is not to send you on a witch hunt, we know that sooner or later you like all of us have will be confronted by this enemy of God, we also know how important it is to know what God has said we ought to do to stop this character in his tracks. With this then we give to you what all ought to do when the enemy comes to steal, kill, and to destroy a child of God: The Apostle Peter moved by the Holy Spirit wrote – 1. Peter 5: 6. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7. Casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you. 8. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: 9. Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10. But the God of all grace, who has called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that you have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.
Now that was on a personal level, there is a vast difference between the personal and service level, for in the service level we are often literally in hand combat with him, to win here is what we must give ourselves to – Ephesians 6: 10. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15. And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16. Above all, taking the shield of faith, where with you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18. Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19. And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel. The writer James writes: 4: 7. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. We are not to run from him, if we do he will get us from the back, for he sees this as a weakness and that is all he needs to come again and again to attack us: Being afraid of him can be a huge problem, he enjoys keeping us from performing the way we know we should; 39V for Victory is ours, and should be so in every battle that we will ever encounter for we have God on our side.
A prayer that God the Holy Spirit has given to me is this, it applies to every possible ill gotten thought that comes to make us doubt, fear, and to be confused, first let this settle in your heart and take it to heart, when this happens the Holy Spirit knows what we have need of and will always ask only for the things we need and no more, the Father says what he has us ask for he will also freely give, in this case protection from the attacks of the evil one: Heavenly Father, these thoughts that are coming against me are not from you, send your enemy away, and let me walk in peace with Jesus as we obey your every command, in his Most High and Holy Name I pray, Amen. Advice, never, never, leave God out of the equation, God tells us 40the battle is not yours but his. The following is a powerful set of words that must register deep in your heart as a foundational one to strengthen your performance in a battle of any kind: 2: Timothy 1: 7. For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind, (the power of the Holy Spirit, the love of the Father, and the sound mind of Christ.) A good record to read is found in 2 Chronicles chapter 20: 1 – 37 it centers around these words, v15 ---be not afraid nor be dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.
Christ Jesus taught us how to pray Matthew 6: 9. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11. Give us this day our daily bread. 12. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. (The battle indeed belongs the God.)
Up to now let it be clear we are talking to adults, we would not be talking to children in the same language you have experience so far: What CEC Canada will do with children from and early age is 41to teach and to train them in the knowledge of 42the truth which comes from our Master Jesus Christ who says I am the way the truth and the life so that in the end they will become 43instruments of righteousness in the hands of God by which 44he reconciles the lost back unto himself. They will know 45the first principles of the doctrines of Christ and will be able to move from them towards perfection, making it possible for them to do such things as dealing with ill gotten thoughts and too, with the fruit that comes from ill gotten thoughts:
Now for you as adults lets look at the fruit of ill gotten thoughts by looking at this present world:
Satan’s – you shall be as gods – the fruit - this world separated from God doing what it thinks is right : today’s secular humanism.
Karl Marx’s – you shall have freedom – absolute power – the fruit – the power of the gun – assassinations. http://www.gmu.edu/departments/economics/bcaplan/museum/entry.htm.
Darwin – there is no God –– there is no intelligent design - evolution, the survival of the fittest – the fruit – the death of the unwanted.
To come up with a closing statement we have this to say, there is much more to open your eyes so that you can see how the devil has managed and is managing his affairs, from what we can see he is busy steeping humanity in the cloak called 46secular humanism which is at best a philosophy that rejects God in preparation for his 47final defiant act as the Antichrist, it is his attempt to take the seat of God as God, over his handy work. The tell tale signs that this time period is near even upon us can readily be seen and heard of, these signs tell us that the order of things are taking shape even as we speak: Hitler wanted to rule the world, he used the words “Deutschland uber alles” to his advantage, true or false, that’s what we were led to believe, the words although not new today are 48“New world order” 49.Globalization was no accident, it had to happen to make the new world order happen: Gobalization is being established under the acceptable guise of global peace and harmony.
All of this tells us that he is busy in the development of a 50one world government and a 51one world belief system which will allow him to sit as God over man. We already know that it will begin with a 52false peace and end up with 53the battle of Armageddon, a war designed by God to deal with his enemies; Their fate is a lake of fire that burns with fire and brimstone. How will this effect God’s people, 54our consolation is we won’t be here when it happens.
Now we ask you, that you remember what the writer to the Hebrews wrote, 1: 1. Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2. Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. We know the principles of the doctrine of Christ and we know of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment, it is between these two where we are commanded to work as 55workers together with Christ in his 56Heavenly calling, which is to seek and to save the lost.
