WHERE IS THE DEVIL NOW

WHAT IS THE DEVIL DOING NOW ?

(Remember his other name is MAGOG and the name of his chief angel is  Gog)

MAGOG (SATAN), IS IN CAPTIVITY SINCE THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS

SATAN IS RULING FROM CAPTIVITY. HE IS DOING his destructive and deceiving work through his CHIEF demon whose name is Gog and his other demons-in the air- he is also using his children in this world -the unbelievers / the antichrist people . MAGOG is like the president and Gog the vice-president . When God raised Jesus from the dead he sent angel Michael to fight with the Devil, putting him in captivity. (Rev 12:7  Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.

Rev 12:8  But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.

Rev 12:9  The great dragon was hurled down–that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Rev 12:10  Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.  ).

Rev 20:7  When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison

Rev 20:8  and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth–Gog and Magog–and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.

WHERE IS SATAN IN CAPTIVITY?

Satan, his other name is MAGOG, is in the sea and from the sea Magog is sending out Gog and his demons to deceive the people that is why the world is in such a mess and that is why there are so many false religions/false gods !!! And THAT IS WHY IT IS SO DIFFICULT FOR THE CHRISTIAN TO STAY ON THE NARROW ROAD , in other words that it is why it is so difficult for a Christian to keep on living a righteous life after he/she has received Jesus as Savior !

THE DEVIL IS THE GOD OF THIS WORLD, he is ruling the world from the depths of the sea . ( Which sea ? …that I will tell you in another message )

Satan is ruling the world. ( While in captivity)

2Co 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

1Jn 5:19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.

Eph 2:2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.

WHO ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL? THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD OF THE BIBLE AND THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN JESUS AS SAVIOR, THOSE WHO HAVE NOT RECEIVE JESUS AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR. THE CHILDREN OF THE DEVIL ARE THE UNBELIEVERS,THE WICKED AND SINNERS. EVEN THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED JESUS AS SAVIOR BUT HAVE TURNED BACK AND LIVING A SINFUL LIFE AGAIN – THEY ARE THE UNRIGHTEOUS PEOPLE WHO ARE LOST AGAIN AND WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD .

1Jn2:18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.

1Jn2:22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist–denying the Father and the Son.

1Jn4:3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

2Jn1:7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

Mat 13:38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one,

Mat 13:39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.

2Jn1:7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

Joh 8:42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me.

Joh 8:43 Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say.

Joh 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

2Pe 2:21  It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Heb 6:4  It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit,

Heb 6:5  who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age

Heb 6:6  and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace. Eze 3:20  “Again, when a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block before them, they will die. Since you did not warn them, they will die for their sin. The righteous things that person did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.

Eze 3:21  But if you do warn the righteous person not to sin and they do not sin, they will surely live because they took warning, and you will have saved yourself.” Eze 18:20  The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them.

THE DEVIL HAS THREE COLORS

1)RED: Satan wants to give the impression that he is consuming fire ,

Rev12:3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.

BUT only God is : Heb12:29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”

2)WHITE

SATAN works through many of his children and even many pastors appear to be holy , but they are NOT !!! You also find this in other religions which appear to be religions of peace and righteousness, but it is not.

2Co11:14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 2Co 11:15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.

3) BLACK

The inside of Satan is darkness and the hearts of his children are filled with darkness

Act_26:18  to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ 2Co_6:14  Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? Luk22:53 Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour–when darkness reigns.”

THROUGH JESUS YOU COME FROM THE DARKNESS OF SATAN TO THE LIGHT, JESUS IS THE LIGHT

Act26:18 to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

Eph_5:8  For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light

Col1:13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,

Joh12:46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.

1Th5:5 You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.

THE ANTICHRIST – the children of the devil

1Jn2:18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.

1Jn2:22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist–denying the Father and the Son.

1Jn4:3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

2Jn1:7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

SOON MAGOG WILL BE RELEASED FROM HIS PRISON

Rev 20:7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison

Rev 20:8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth–Gog and Magog–and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.

Rev 20:9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them.

CHRISTIANS, WHEN SATAN will be Released , it is going to be hell in this world for 1260 days . Then Jesus will come to fetch the righteous Christians .

Mat24:21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now–and never to be equaled again.

Mat_24:29 “Immediately after the distress of those days “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’

Rev_20:4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT

Mat_10:15  Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.

Mat_11:22  But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you.

Mat_11:24  But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”

Mat_12:36  But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.

Rom_2:5  But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed.

2Pe_2:9  if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment.

2Pe_3:7  By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

1Jn_4:17  This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.

Jud_1:6  And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling–these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.

Mat_12:36  But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.

Heb_4:13  Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

1Pe_4:5  But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.

Rev 20:10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Rev 20:11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them.

Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.

Rev 20:13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done.

Rev 20:14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.

Rev 20:15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Rev_21:8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

REMEMBER , THE SECOND DEATH IS FINAL !! THE SECOND DEATH IS ETERNAL LIFE IN HELL – your spirit never dies !!

Mat_8:12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
Mat_13:42 They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat_13:50 and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat_22:13 “Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
Mat_24:51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat_25:30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Luk_13:28 “There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out.

Rev_14:11 And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.” Rev_20:10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
