Doctrine of Satanic War Plan

Satan war plan is basically made of deception using the most devious forces in the entire universe. There are six categories of fallen angels (Ephesians 6:12)

* The rulers (archons) – the highest ranking (Abaddon and Beelzebub)
* The powers – demonic officials
* The world forces of darkness (kosmoskratoras) –those who possessed the leaders of the world (political, military, economic, and religious)
* The spiritual forces in heavenly places – those in the atmosphere, stellar universe and heaven
* The low-profile demons – who are doing all the dirty and messy jobs
(Ephesians 6:12)

1Pe 5:8  Be sober,3525 be vigilant;1127 because3754 your5216 adversary476 the devil,1228 as5613 a roaring5612 lion,3023 walketh about,4043 seeking2212 whom5101 he may devour:2666

Satan is a hunter, diligently waiting for his prey and skillful in making traps that effectively caught the undiscerning. He invites people to think evil, deceiving them in every angle while being free from any suspicion, and he wears down the saints. Satan wears down the saint by feeding the emotion with human viewpoint and satanic stuff in order to supersedes doctrinal though. The fall of every believer begins at the moment he substitute doctrine with human viewpoint.

While Satan is patiently in waiting for his attack, the believer must build his spiritual strength, hold his ground in grace. To hold your ground means to resist the devil by being firm in the faith (Eph. 6:11-13, I Peter 5:9), resisting him by faith (James 4:7-8) and submitting to God in genuine humility. When James says, cleanse your hands that refers to rebound.

Basic Principles Related to Spiritual Rules of Engagement

* You must have developed discipline to fight (spiritual and mental preparation)
* You must be prepared to fight (skill and training preparation)
* You must know yourself as warrior –you must know when to fight, when not to fight and when to be in offensive or defensive.
* You must know your enemy- his tactics, schemes, deception, pattern of thinking and vocabulary he use.
* You must be prepared for your enemy at all time. Surprise your enemy by being prepared to fight anywhere –anytime.
* You must know the value of unity of rank (Phil. 2:2-3) or subordination and team effort.

2Co 3:17  Now1161 the3588 Lord2962 is2076 that Spirit:4151 and1161 where3757 the3588 Spirit4151 of the Lord2962 is, there1563 is liberty.1657

“But” the strongest contrast in Greek point between the unbelieving Jews – who has veil over their mind (referring to negative volition toward Bible doctrine and God) and Church Age saints – whose veil over their mind were removed  (referring to positive volition toward Bible doctrine and God. The term “beholding” (katoptrizo) in relationship to the Word of God – means to look into a mirror to produce reflection

2Co 3:18  But1161 we2249 all,3956 with open343 face4383 beholding as in a glass2734 the3588 glory1391 of the Lord,2962 are changed3339 into the3588 same846 image1504 from575 glory1391 to1519 glory,1391 even as2509 by575 the Spirit4151 of the Lord.2962

The Shekinah glory indwells every Church age believer and therefore, the metabolized Word of God is needed to reflect His glory. The glory of God is reflected in the believer as the result of spiritual process where a sinful man by the grace of God is transformed first positionally then, experientially by means of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.

Hardness of the heart is the veil that covers the mind in order not to see the truth of God’s Word.

2 Cor. 3:15-16  But235 even unto2193 this day,4594 when2259 Moses3475 is read,314 the veil2571 is2749 upon1909 their846 heart.2588 Nevertheless1161 when2259, 302 it shall turn1994 to4314 the Lord,2962 the3588 veil2571 shall be taken away.4014  rd. “Removed” (katageo) means to put an end, implies permanent removal.

The term “turn” epistrepho means to turn with the result of converting faith in Christ into a workable and functional faith in reality of life. The term eleutheria which means true freedom or liberty in Christ points to 2 categories of freedom:

* Divine establishment freedom which comprise the entire human race
* Spiritual freedom which is available only inside the plan of God (John 8:32).

Where Satan wants to ascends, the Lord Jesus Christ volitionally descends. Satan being arrogantly devious failed to recognized the way to greatness in the spiritual realm is down not up. Behind every human power, there is satanic power. The devil is offering to anyone the power to control and dominate the human race.

Isa. 14:13-14

The original sin of Satan and Adam is independence from God. The issue is your will over God’s will. What is the evil behind independence from God? The operation of evil is the function of doing the will and the desire of the will (John 8:44).

* When Satan said, “I will ascend to heaven” he was occupied with self.
* When he said, “I will raise” he was saying “I will cause myself to rule above all the angels”.

Those angels who followed him did not understand that he wanted to make them his slaves. “Stars” in the Old Testament always refers to angelic beings (Jude 13). Being the prince of the power of the air (Eph. 2:2), the god of this world (2 Cor. 4:4), and the ruler of the world (John 14:30), Satan is allowed by God to accomplish a part of his goal.

However, the terrible condition of the world reflects the kind of ruler-ship he has. His self-righteous arrogance told him that he is not equal but above God. The modern day politicians are following his footsteps, while bragging about their accomplishment and success, they are sinking into the mire of their failures. Majority of believers are helping Satan to accomplish his full objective. “I will sit on the mount of assembly (human government) in the recesses of the north “points to the devious ambition of Satan to rule both those in heavens and those on earth. “ I will ascend above the heights of the clouds (divine presence). Satan wanted to take over the function of God. He wanted the all power, authority, though lacking the ability and capacity. He wanted the authority with the responsibility. “I will make myself like the most High” Satan wanted to become like God possessing His character, essence or attributes but he does not like His responsibility. He is not really interested to imitate or grab the character of God; all he wanted is His power and authority.

Satan is promoting the human good system (satanic policy of evil) because the creature gets the credit and all the glory. Satan does not care who gets the credit as long as it does not go to God. In the same way, Satan is advocating the evolution theory because man is made noticeable as closer to animals (creature) than to God (Creator).

Satan has to fake what he does not have. Everything that Satan has in the world is deception and illusion, none is reality. For this reason, Satan hates the believer’s residency, function and momentum inside the divine dynasphere, because from there the believer can imitate (follow) the mind of Christ (Gal. 4:19, Eph. 5:1).

Satan wanted the title the Most High among all the titles of God because it describes the possessor of heavens and earth. For many Satan is unlike God inwardly but much God outwardly. Satan does not have the ambition to become like Jehovah (Self-Existent One) but just to become the owner and ruler of heavens and earth. He has nothing to do with God’s character. While at the same time, his offer to man is “you will be like God” (Gen. 3:5). The five “I wills” of Satan expresses his desire for God’s power, authority, ruler-ship, glory and wealth.

Isaiah 42:8  I589 am the LORD:3068 that1931 is my name:8034 and my glory3519 will I not3808 give5414 to another,312 neither my praise8416 to graven images.6456

The point is that, God will not share His glory with anyone. Everything the creature receives is a courtesy of God’s grace. God respect human volition (freewill decision of the soul). As soon as you start doing things in your own way, God immediately step aside and letting you do it yourself.

Satan is promoting morality as spirituality because even he is capable of becoming moral. Morality is well accepted because everyone can be morally acceptable regardless of what immorality they are doing. You can be morally righteous in a short period of time. Morality no matter how noble is still immorality before God.

Satan promotes the rejection of dispensation because he wanted the Church Age believers to live in the principles of spirituality different from their own dispensation. Majority of believers today are practicing a different kind of spirituality that belongs to the Israel Old Testament.

2 Cor 11:3  But1161 I fear,5399 lest by any means,3381 as5613 the3588 serpent3789 beguiled1818 Eve2096 through1722 his848 subtlety,3834 so3779 your5216 minds3540 should be corrupted5351 from575 the3588 simplicity572 that3588 is in1519 Christ.5547

Satan has low tolerance of pain. The Lord Jesus Christ passed all the hardship required for majestic leadership. Satan is the original counterfeiter and conspirator who will never give in authority over him, making him the origin and author of rebellion in the world.

Isa 14:15  Yet389 thou shalt be brought down3381 to413 hell,7585 to413 the sides3411 of the pit.953

This is the third fall of Satan (Rev. 20:10),  to “thrust down” jaradh – going there apart form his own volition  is an act of turning against the Lord. This refers to those who volitionally went against God all throughout their lives and therefore will be thrown into hell against their volition. At that point, the captor will become captive, and his boasting that he can release the fallen angels in Tartarus  will failed. Tartarus is a prison with escape or release.

Satan is the enemy that brought evil, sin and chaos on the planet earth. He is the enemy of:

* All Israel –all form of anti-Semitism is satanic and from the devil’s ambition to eliminate the Jews, so that there will be no recipient of unconditional covenants therefore making God a liar.
* Every Church age believer – the royal family of God, the body of Christ (2 Cor. 2:11).
* All unbeliever of all time in all places (2 Cor. 4:3-4).
* Bible doctrine (Matthew 13:9) but friends of religious doctrines
* Hypostatic Union (Rev. 12:4)
* Human history (Hebrews 1-2)
* Nationalism and patriotism
* Marriage
* Family
* People he uses

Satan is pro-Semitism, pro good-works, pro legalism, pro ecumenism, pro internationalism – globalization, pro divorce, and pro rebellion – activism, pro evolution. In facing the enemy, our ultimate objective is to break the enemy’s resistance. There is nothing we can do to take away Satan from this world and the old sin nature will never leave us, but through the power and grace of God, you can break his resistance.

All warfare is based on deception. You are already deceived if you are thinking that:

* You cannot be deceived by Satan
* You are not being deceived
* You can easily defeat him
* You are not really his enemy
* You can deceive him
* You are wiser and smarter than him
* Your resources and skills made you victorious over Satan.

Three danger zones of deception in the cosmic system:

·        Self-deception (Col. 2:4, 1 Cor. 3:18) – you are the one deceiving yourself from unreality and illusion.

·        Cosmic deception (1 John 2:15)

·        Satanic deception

Everyday, we pass by God’s wonderful blessing for and everyday, we take hold of nasty and terrible things from Satan. The only reason for this stupid action is because we lack discernment. Discernment is the ability to make wise and distinct decisions that separate the believers fro the unbelievers. Satan is the master of illusion. The longest and greatest test falls under the area of unbelievers.

The essence of evil is independence of God. Anything that man does on his is evil. Man is designed to function dependently from God. Believers must be able to do three things:

* Recognize evil in no time
* Know how to deal with evil
* Know the solution to evil

The ability to recognize evil and applying immediately the solution from Bible doctrine is through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit and metabolized Bible doctrine in the soul. Evil is the satanic policy which originates from Satan, and its operation is always from Satan (John 8:44, 3:12) designed to trap man in satanic snares (2 Cor. 11:14).

It is impossible to discern divine good from evil apart from stored and operational Bible doctrine in the soul (Hebrews 5:14). All personal sins of all human beings were judged at the Cross, however evil is yet to be judged (2 Cor. 5:14-21). All the human good and divine good of the believer will face Bema judgment (1 cor. 3:11-15). This is the judgment of the believer’s work (1 Cor. 3:9-15, 4:5).

Eight categories of judgments:

* Judgment of the Cross – where all the sins of every human being were judged. Christ was judged as a substitute for every man.
* Judgment of self – believers are to judge themselves – this is rebound privileges. Confession is to God alone, privately, and without begging, condemning self or making promises to God.
* Judgment of the believers work in time
* Judgment of believers in time – through self-induced miseries and three types of discipline (week, intensive and maximum or sin unto death).
* Judgment of Israel – prior to their entry to the kingdom of God.
* Judgment of fire – also called Baptism of Fire, or the judgment of the nations that assemble to fight and destroy Israel.
* Judgment of the angels – the destiny of Satan and his demons.
* Judgment of the Great White Throne – the judgment of all unbelievers into the Lake of Fire for rejecting the grace plan the free of God
