WHY DID GOD HIGHLY EXALT JESUS?

SPELLING EDITED


WHY DID GOD HIGHLY EXALT JESUS?


When we read Philippians 2:8-11, we can clearly see that the Son of MAN, Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED by Almighty God the Father. But have you ever asked yourself WHY?


Please read Philippians 2:8-11.


“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross

9.  WHEREFORE (Or for this very REASON of the Son of MAN, Jesus, becoming obedient to the WILL of God to suffer and die on the cross for the sins of the people)

God also has HIGHLY EXALTED him, and GIVEN him a NAME which is above every name:

10.  That AT the NAME of Jesus (Speaking of Jesus’ NEW NAME that God gave to Jesus AFTER the cross) every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 

11.  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ IS LORD, TO the glory OF God the Father.”


Now we know that Jesus was given a NEW NAME by Almighty God AFTER the cross because Jesus himself tells us this in the Book of Revelation.


Please read Revelation 3:12.


Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my NEW NAME.”


In Revelation 3:21 Jesus says that whosever overcomes EVEN as he has overcome will be granted to sit on his Father’s throne with him.


Revelation 3:21.


To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”


So Jesus was being TESTED as well. And as the JOY set before Jesus to ENDURE the cross, God promised to HIGHLY EXALT the Son of man, Jesus, and give him a NEW NAME. This NEW NAME of Jesus is also prophecied in the Book of Isaiah.


Please read Isaiah 62:1-5.


“For Zion's sake (Speaking of the church) will I (Yahweh) not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I (Yahweh) will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burns. (The LITERAL translation says, until HE shall come forth as brightness and righteousness of HER and SALVATION of HER as torch he shall CONSUME. Speaking of both Zion, the church or church age, and the children of Israel during the Millennium. Jesus is coming as flaming FIRE to deliver the children of Israel DURING the WRATH of God. And right before Jesus executes the wrath of God the Rapture of the church will occur and the saints IN Jesus Christ will be rewarded with eternal life to rule and reign with Jesus during the Millennium)

2.  And the Gentiles shall see YOUR righteousness, (Speaking of God’s Messiah’s righteousness. And the Gentiles is referring to those left alive of the nations AFTER the wrath of God who will seek Jesus during the Millennium) and all kings YOUR glory: (Speaking of God’s Messiah’s glory which God glorified him with AFTER the cross. And all the kings is speaking of the glorified saints who will be made kings and priests unto God during the Millennium to SHARE in the glory of Jesus as JOINT HEIRS of salvation) and YOU shall be called by a NEW NAME, which the mouth of the LORD shall NAME

3.  YOU (Speaking of God’s now glorified Messiah) shall also be a crown of glory IN the hand OF the LORD, and a royal diadem IN the hand OF YOUR God

4.  YOU shall no more be termed Forsaken; (Remember that the Jews considered Jesus forsaken and smitten of God. And even Jesus asked his Father, Why have you forsaken me. But God set a JOY before the Son of man, Jesus, to endure the cross. See Hebrews 12:2) neither shall YOUR land any more be termed Desolate: (Jesus will INHERIT the whole earth INCLUDING inheriting the PEOPLE. And in the world to come, Jesus, under the power and the authority of his NEW NAME that Yahweh GAVE to him after the cross, will rule and reign FOR Yahweh for 1000 years)

but YOU shall be called Hephzibah, (Meaning my delight)  and YOUR land Beulah: (Meaning to be master or to have dominion. It also means to marry or to be a wife) FOR (Or BECAUSE) the LORD delightes in YOU, and YOUR land shall be married

5.  For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall YOUR sons marry YOU: and as the BRIDEGROOM rejoices over the bride, so shall YOUR God rejoice over YOU.”


So again, almost all Christians have heard or read in Philippians 2:8-11 that Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED and GIVEN a NAME above every other name. But have you ever asked yourself WHY? Why did God promise the Son of MAN, Jesus, that he would INHERIT the world to come?

Let us read through Hebrews 1:2-4 and further on in this study I will explain its TRUE meaning, according to the WHOLE word of God.


Hebrews 1:1-4.


God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets

2. Has in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he has appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 

3.  Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high

4.  Being made so much better than the angels, as he has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 


Again, I will explain the TRUE meaning of the entire chapter of Hebrews 1:1-14 further on in this study. But for now, let us read Ephesians 2:6,7. For you see, Ephesians 2:6,7 along with many other verses give us the TRUE meaning of Hebrews chapter 1. And as we read Ephesians, as well as the other passages of Scripture, please notice that I have highlighted all the words and pronouns that refer back to Almighty God the Father in orange and all the words and pronouns that refer back to Jesus is yellow.


Ephesians 2:6,7.


 “And (Almighty God the Father) has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places IN Christ Jesus

7.  THAT (Or so that) in the ages to come he (Referring to Almighty God the Father) might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”


So then, through of BECAUSE OF the obedience of the Son of MAN< Jesus to do the WILL OF his God and Father, Yahweh has raised up to sit in heavenly places WITH Jesus BECAUSE we BELIEVE in his Son Jesus as the atonement of our sin. Another thing that I want you to focus on is the ages to come being in the plural. I will explain more about the ages to come shortly. But first, let us read some more verse that speaks of our inheritance being joint-heirs with Jesus and the things that God has prepared for those who love God.


1 Corinthians 2:9.


“But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him.”


God has revealed SOME of those things to us in his word. But I am quite sure God has much more prepared for his NEW CREATION of new creatures of righteousness created IN his Son Jesus Christ. Let us continue.


Please read James 1:12-18.


“Blessed is the man that endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love him

13.  Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man: 

14.  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 

15.  Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death. 

16.  Do not err, my beloved brethren

17.  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 

18.  Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.” 


It is all about the TRIAL. Satan and the fallen angels are on TRIAL. And God created mankind to PROVE that what he creates is PERFECT and NOT FLAWED as he has wrongly been accused of creating Lucifer imperfect. And thus Lucifer is BLAMING God for him rebelling against God to make war with God.

So then, in order to CLEAR God’s name from being defamed by Lucifer and the fallen angels, God said to the Elohim, Let us make man in our image. You see my dear brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ, God had a PLAN to both clear his name and to REPLACE Lucifer with his Messiah. So God created mankind a little LOWER than the angels as a TEST to prove to Lucifer and the fallen angels that he is JUSTIFIED to destroy them in the lake of fire. For you see, if an inferior species could live WITHOUT sin, then God would be JUST to destroy Satan and the fallen angels which are SUPERIOR to human beings. And that is why God said, Let no man say that he is tempted or TESTED by God because it is the ENEMY of God who tempts mankind to sin. God’s TEST is to PROVE that an INFERIOR species of beings TO the angels could live without sin. And when God said to the Elohim, Let US make man in OUR image God HID a PROPHECY of his yet future Messiah whom we, as Christians, know to be Jesus. You see, Jesus read Genesis 1:26,27 and he KNEW that God was speaking to HIM to become the firstfruits of God’s New creation to become the AUTHOR and the finisher of our faith so that we could ALSO become the firstfruits of God.

Another question that many Christians have asked is why does God allow Satan to tempt us? It is because it is all a part of God so great a PLAN of salvation. Almighty God the Father is the only WISE God and he laid a SNARE to trap Satan. For you see, had Satan known God’s PLAN of salvation then he would NOT have crucified the Lord of glory. For you see, by crucifying Yahweh’s Messiah, Satan put a noose around his own neck. God kept his plan of salvation a SECRET from BEFORE the FOUNDATION of the world.


Please read Matthew 13:35.


All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: 

35.  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been KEPT SECRET from the FOUNDATION of the WORLD.”


Now, almost all Christians, including myself, have always understood in times past that the phrase “the FOUNDATION of the WORLD” means from the beginning of the CREATION of the EARTH in eternity past. But in the last few years God has been revealing to me, and I trust that God is revealing to many other Christians as well, that the phrase “the FOUNDATION of the WORLD” is referring to the DETHRONING of Lucifer from being the god of this present AGE or world SYSTEM, as in, the governing of the world SYSTEM. The meaning of the word “world” does NOT always mean the Earth. 

Also, the Greek word translated as “foundation” also means to CAST DOWN. And when you look deeper, the meaning of the root word means to dethrone the TENANT of the SYSTEM referring to Satan being cast down from his throne as being the god of this world’s system. Please read the study “WHAT DOES THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD TRULY MEAN?” But for now, here is a short excerpt from that study.


God DETHRONED Lucifer during the FOUNDATION of the WORLD. What I mean by this is that God BEGAN the dethroning of Lucifer when during the restoration of the earth after becoming void during the WAR in heaven. But God kept his dethroning of Satan a SECRET from his enemy. If you look up the phrase “the FOUNDATION of the WORLD in the King James Version of the Bible you will find it ten times. And all ten times the SAME Greek word “katabole” Strong’s #2602 that is translated as FOUNDATION is used.

 

Here is the meaning of this Greek word “katabole”.

 

G2602

καταβολή

katabolē

kat-ab-ol-ay'

From G2598; a deposition, that is, founding; figuratively conception: - conceive, foundation.

Total KJV occurrences: 11

 

The word deposition or to depose means to remove by force, to overthrow, to unseat, to remove, and to DETHRONE. And when we look up the root word “kataballo” Strong’s # 1598 we can see that it means to throw down or to cast down.

 

G2598

καταβάλλω

kataballō

kat-ab-al'-lo

From G2596 and G906; to throw down: - cast down, lay.

Total KJV occurrences: 3

 

So then, the FOUNDATION of the WORLD speaks of the DETHRONING of Lucifer and the RE-CREATING or the RESTORATION of the earth around 6,000 years ago and NOT the original creation of the heavens and the earth by Yahweh in eternity past. 

You see dear children of God, the earth itself could be millions or even billions of years old. But mankind was created only around 6000 years ago. Please see the study “DOES GOD HAVE A 7000 YEAR PLAN OF SALVATION?”

So then, the phrase “In the BEGINNING” in John 1:1 is referring to the beginning of the creation of MANKIND and the DETHRONING of Lucifer. The dethroning of Lucifer, now called Satan, began right BEFORE the creation of Adam and Eve. 

Sometime between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2, Lucifer rule and reigned on the throne that Almighty God gave to him to be a God or the TENANT of the Earth during what Bible Scholars call the Luciferian Age. Remember that the HUMANS had NOT YET been created. So BEFORE the creation of mankind, Lucifer ruled over another species of beings that were humanoid in appearance but they were NOT the same species of humans that BEGAN with the creation of Adam and Eve. 

My point right now is that the DETHRONING of Lucifer from the throne that Almighty God himself GAVE to Lucifer as the TENANT of the earth began after Lucifer made WAR with God to try to take over God’s throne. And the WHOLE plan of Almighty God is to REPLACE Lucifer with his TRIUMPHANT Messiah, our Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ.

 

So with this in mind, let us now read Hebrews 1:1-14 to see its TRUE meaning in the LIGHT of the Son of MAN, Jesus, OBTAINING a NAME more excellent than the angels to JUDGE the fallen angels and to REPLACE Lucifer as the TENANT of the Earth. For you see, it is prophesied in that God’s Messiah would be called the God of the whole Earth.

 

Hebrews 1:1-14.

 

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 

2.  Has in these last days spoken unto us BY his Son, (And this means that during the Old Testament times, God did NOT speak to us BY his Son manifesting himself as an angel. In other words, Almighty God BEGAN for the very FIRST time to speak to people BY way of his Son in these last days which started when the ANOINTED Son of MAN, Jesus, BEGAN his ministry to speak to us BY his Son) whom he has appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; (Before I explain this last clause in verse 2, I want you to take note as to who is giving the INHERITANCE and to who will RECEIVE the INHERITANCE. And then I want you to THING about WHY would an Almighty God INHERIT the ages to come FROM Almighty God? The TRUTH of the matter is that the Engish word “THINGS” is NOT in the original Greek text. And this verse truly means that Jesus will be given PEOPLE. Please see Isaiah 43:4.  Since you were precious in my sight, you have been honorable, and I have loved you: therefore will I give men for you, and people for your life.” So the verse should read that Almighty God the Father has APPOINTED the Son of MAN, Jesus, to be HEIR of THE ALL. And THE ALL is speaking of the ALL who whosever BELIEVES in Jesus as the atonement for their sins. And the rest of the last clause in verse 2, “by whom ALSO he made the worlds”, means BECAUSE OF whom HE prepares the AGES to come” This last clause could also be translated as FOR whom HE also prepares the AGES.” Please read the LITERAL translation which says, “On last ones of the days these talks to us is Son whom HE places TENANT of ALL through whom [Or FOR whom] HE MAKES the eons” [Or the AGES to come] Please notice that the LITERAL translation is in the future tense of the worlds being made by Almighty God FOR his Son and his sons who will INHERIT the worlds to come)

3.  Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, (Keep in mind that the CONTEXT is speaking of the HIGHLY EXALTED Son of MAN, Jesus, who was GLORIFIED by Almighty God AFTER the cross and resurrection. In other words, Jesus BECAME the EXPRESS IMAGE of God AFTER the cross) and upholding all things (Again, the English word “THINGS” is NOT in the original Greek text, So the TRUE meaning of this verse is that Jesus is upholding THE ALL of whosever BELIEVE in him) by the word of his power, (Or by the word Jesus spoke as his TRUE GOSPEL which was confirmed and established) WHEN he had by himself (Meaning of his OWN free will laid down his own life on the cross) purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; (By being HIGHLY EXALTED and granted to sit on his God and Father’s right hand BY Almighty God, the Majesty in high)

4.  Being made so much better than the angels, as he has BY inheritance obtained a more excellent NAME than they. (Speaking of the Son of MAN, Jesus being HIGHLY EXALTED by the Father and GIVEN his NEW NAME by Almighty God the Father that is higher than any other name except for Yahweh)

5.  For unto which of the angels said he at any time, You are my Son, THIS DAY have I begotten you? And again, I WILL BE to him a Father, and he SHALL BE to me a Son

6.  And again, when he brings in the first begotten (Speaking of the Son of MAN, Jesus, who became the first begotten from the dead to become the firstborn of many brethren and the firstborn of every creature to be made in the IMAGE of God) into the world, (Speaking of the SECOND coming of Jesus) he says, And let all the angels of God worship him. 

7.  And of the angels he says, Who makes his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. 

8.  But unto the Son he says, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your kingdom. (Speaking of the Millennium or the 1000 year reign of the now HGHLY EXALTED Son of MAN, Jesus, as the Lord of the Sabbath while Yahweh takes his seventh 1000 year long day of rest)

9.  You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; THEREFORE God, even YOUR God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness ABOVE your fellows. (Or above your BRETHREN who will rule and reign WITH you. Now before we read the next verse, I want you to THINK for yourself. There are FOUR categories of beings that are discussed in Hebrews chapter 1. #1. There is Almighty God the Father. #2. There is his Son who INHERITS the world to come FROM Almighty God the Father who is also the God OF his Son, Jesus. #3. There are the angels who are NOW made LOWER than the highly exalted Son of MAN, Jesus. #4. Then there are the faithful Christians called THE ALL for whom the worlds to come, God MAKES. Now up to this point, a COMPARISON is being made BETWEEN Jesus and the angels. BUT in the NEXT verse is a COMPARISON between Almighty God the Father AND his SON.)

10.  And, YOU, Lord, (Or and YOU Yahweh, my God, and my Father) in the beginning have laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of YOUR hands

11.  They shall perish, but YOU remain, and they all shall wax old as does a garment; 

12.  And as a vesture shall YOU fold them up, and they shall be changed: but YOU are the same, and YOUR years shall not fail. (And then the writer of Hebrews go BACK to comparing God’s SON with the ANGELS in the NEXT verse. Every writer in the New Testament always gives the GLORY TO the Father. And Hebrews 1:10-12 is giving the GLORY to the FATHER as the ONE who is doing the WORK of providing mankind with a Savior. The phrase “laid the FOUNDATION of the earth” is referring to 6000 years ago and NOT the CREATION of the earth in eternity past. Jesus is the ONLY FOUNDATION that is laid. And in the mind and PLAN of God, his LAMB was SLAIN BEFORE the FOUNDATION of the world. It is Yahweh who PERFORMS the zeal of his spoken word of PROPHECY to bring it to pass.)

13.  But to which of the angels said he (Speaking of Yahweh the Father who devised HIS plan of salvation to highly EXALT his FIRSTBORN Son BEFORE the FOUNDATION of the world SYSTEM 6000 years ago and NOT in eternity past before the ANGELS were even created) at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool

14.  Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”

 

The writer of Hebrews is making it absolutely CLEAR that Jesus is NOT and ANGEL, Jesus was NEVER and ANGEL and Jesus will never BE an ANGEL. The writer of Hebrews is also making it absolutely CLEAR that Almighty God the Father is the God OF his Son, Jesus, in the verses right BEFORE Hebrews 1:10-12. And, therefore, the writer of Hebrews never INTENDED his word to be wrongly interpreted in Hebrew 1:10-12 as referring to God’s Son, Jesus.

And that is the TRUE meaning of Hebrews 1:1-14. The ONE TRUE and ONLY God who ALONE is the ALMIGHTY God cannot have another God OVER him and Jesus has his God and Father OVER him. Therefore, to ME< it is IMPOSSIBLE for Jesus to BE Yahweh HIMSELF.

BUT it is NOT impossible for Jesus’ NEW NAME that was GIVEN to the Son of MAN, Jesus AFTER the cross to also be Yahweh, the NAME above every other NAME so THAT every knee will bow TO that NAME TO the GLORY OF the Father.

And THAT is the REASON why the Son of MAN, Jesus was HIGHLY EXALTED by his God and Father. And that is WHY God’s Messiah NEEDED to be a MAN. For you see it was BY a MAN that sin came into the world and it is by a MAN that the RESURRECTION came.

 

Please read Romans 5:19.

 

“For as by ONE man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of ONE (Speaking of the Son of MAN, Jesus) shall many be made righteous.”

 

Jesus said that he CAME OUT FROM God and that he CAME FORTH from the Father in John 16:27,28. But nowhere did Jesus ever say that he IS the Father or that he IS Almighty God himself. Every verse that is used to TRY and prove that the phrase “SON OF God” MUST mean that Jesus IS the ONE TRUE and only Almighty God, Yahweh HIMSELF has ANOTHER meaning that AGREES with every single verse in the Bible and does NOT contradict our God-given LOGIC. So I implore all my Trinitarian and Oneness brothers and sister in of Lord Jesus Christ, along with the Jehovah’s Witness and the Mormons, to read all the studies listed under the two headings >>>A LIST OF STUDIES ON THE TRINITY!<<<<, and >>>IS THE ONENESS DOCTRINE BIBLICAL?<<<

But for now, here are a few more verses of Scripture that teach us that God is in the process of DETRHONING Lucifer because of his rebellion to make WAR with God.


 

Lucifer being dethroned

 

Ezekiel 21:25-30.


“And you, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, WHEN iniquity shall have an END, (Now, we know that Satan is a wicked prince. And we know that Satan will be destroyed in the lake of fire WHEN God ahs but a COMPLETE END to sin in the final Day of Judgment at the END of the Millennium, The the wicked prince here is referring to Satan who will be DETHRONED, according to this PROPHECY)

26  Thus says the Lord GOD (TO this profane wicked prince); Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: (Speaking of the DAY WHEN sin will come to an END at the END of the Millennium) this shall not be the same: (Meaning the old prince of Israel will NOT be the SAME as God’s NEW Prince whom he appoints as HEIR to rule the kingdom of Israel) EXALT him that is low, and abase him that is high. 

27.  I (Yahweh) will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: (Speaking of the VERDICT given by Lucifer defaming God’s name. Basically, God was about to destroy Lucifer and his army of the fallen angels before God ever created man 6000 years ago and Satan falsely accused God that he had no right to destroy him because God created him profane and wicked. So it is all God’s fault, according to Satan’s LIE. So if God were to go ahead and destroy Satan right then and there 6000 years ago then all the GOOD angels would have wondered if Lucifer’s accusation was true. So God devised a PLAN to SNARE Satan with his OWN words and thereby CLEAR his defamed name) and it shall be no more until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him. (In other words, 6000 years ago, God dethrone Lucifer from being the God of the whole earth. And then when Adam sinned, Lucifer STOLE what was GIVEN to man to have DOMINION over the earth. And then, when the Son of MAN, Jesus became obedient even unto death on the cross his God and Father highly EXALTED him and GAVE the Son of MAN back the dominion of the earth giving him the authority to JUDGE. BUT Satan refuses to give up the dominion over the earth without a FIGHT. And that is WHY Satan is presently called the god of this world. Or more precisely, the god of this SYSTEM because Satan is NOT our God who BELIEVE in his SON, Jesus as the atonement for our sins)

28  And you, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus says the Lord GOD concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say you, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume because of the glittering: 

29.  Whiles they see vanity unto you, whiles they divine a lie unto you, to bring you upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, WHEN their iniquity shall have an END. (This is speaking of the DAY of the slaughter of the WICKED by Jesus who is coming AGAIN to execute the WRATH of Almighty God. Remember that the DAY of the Lord vengeance is as a 1000 years. This means that the sins of Christians will come to an END before the 1000 year reign of Jesus. And the sins of the children of Israel will come to an END and the END of the 1000 year reign of Jesus)

30.  Shall I cause it to return into his sheath? I will judge you in the place where you were created, in the land of your nativity.” 


Now, to ME, verse 30 is speaking of the nativity of Lucifer who BECAME God’s enemy to be called Satan. For you see, the name Satan means adversary or enemy and Lucifer was not always God’s enemy. Lucifer once ruled the earth being GIVEN that authority BY his creator. So since God prophesies that he will destroy this profane wicked prince in the PLACE where God CREATED him then I would have to say that the PLACE that God created Lucifer was right here on the earth way before God ever created the HUMANS some 6000 years ago. And since Lucifer is also called the king of Babylon in Isaiah 14:4 then I would have to say that the LAND of Lucifer’s NATIVITY is the LAND of Babylon. And since great city Babylon is an ANALOGY of the whole system, then I would have to say the king of Babylon in Isaiah 14:4 is an analogy of this present world from the time of Adam’s fall to the Second coming of Jesus. For you see, that is WHEN Satan will be BOUND in the bottomless pit for 1000 years during the reign of Jesus as the God of the whole earth.

Now let us read some verses that teach us that God has laid some SNARES to trap Lucifer or Satan so that God can justify to his GOOD angels that he has every right to destroy Lucifer and the fallen angels. Basically, God is collecting evidence to CONVICT Lucifer and the fallen angels to destruction in the lake of fire.


Please read Isaiah 24:18-23.


“And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: (Revelation 20 teaches us that Satan will be bound in the bottomless PIT for 1000 years. And then at the END of the 1000 years, Satan will be let loose OUT OF the bottomless pit for a short time. And during that short time, Satan will go about the earth DECEIVING the nations to make WAR against God’s people, the children of Israel. And then the second half of God’s wrath will be poured out on Satan, his army of fallen angels called the high ones here in Isaiah 24 and all the wicked humans of the nations that will be deceived by Satan at that time) for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. 

19.  The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. 

20.  The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. 

21.  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high and the kings of the earth upon the earth. (Remember that BOTH halves of God’s WRATH are being prophecied in these verse in much the same way that BOTH the first and second comings of Jesus are prophecied in the same passage of Scripture. In other words, the heavens will be shaken at the second coming of Jesus BEFORE the 1000 year reign of Jesus. And the heavens will pass away with a great noise and melt with fervent heat at the END of the 1000 year reign of Jesus. And that is WHY Peter warned us to NOT be IGNORANT of this ONE thing that a day is as a 1000 years and a 1000 years is as a day. So the DAY of the Lord is a 1000 year long day. The first half of the WRATH of God is poured out right BEFORE the Millennium and the last half of the WARTH od God is poured out right after the Millenium. The HOUR of judgment in Revelation 3:3,10 and Revelation 14:7 is called a HALF HOUR in the seventh seal. See Revelation 8:1)

22.  And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. (Speaking of AFTER the 1000 years has ended they will be let loose for a little season of for a short time as God’s TRAP to prove that they are the CAUSE of man’s sin. And thus the cause of their own sin of rebelling against God before mankind was ever created)

23.  Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, WHEN the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.” 


Now keep in mind that Yahweh will be reigning THROUGH the HIGHLY EXALTED Son of MAN who he himself MADE to be both Lord and Christ. Jesus will be ruling FOR Yahweh in his NAME being GIVEN his NEW NAME, the very SAME name of his God and Father, the NAME Yahweh. And every knee will bow to the NAME of Jesus, speaking of Jesus’ NEW NAME, TO the GLORY OF God the FATHER.

Now we can see pretty much the same thing being prophesied in Jeremiah 28:40-43 that we just read in Isaiah 24:


Jeremiah 48:40-43.


“For thus says the LORD; Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread his wings over Moab. (To ME this is the AIR strike prophecied in Revelation 16:15-21 that Jesus will execute during his execution the WRATH of God upon the Islam Muslim nations for making WAR against his people Israel)

41.  Kerioth is taken, and the strongholds are surprised, and the mighty men's hearts in Moab at that day shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs. 

42.  And Moab shall be destroyed from being a people because he has magnified himself against the LORD

43.  Fear, and the pit, and the snare, shall be upon you, O inhabitant of Moab, says the LORD. 

44.  He that flees from the FEAR (Referring to running a hiding from God as oppose to REPENTING and SURRENDERING TO Jesus by calling upon the true name of the Lord which is NOT Allah) shall fall into the pit; and he that gets up out of the pit shall be taken in the snare: (Again, referring to Satan ascending up out of the pit at the end of the Millennium) for I will bring upon it, even upon Moab, the year of their visitation, says the LORD.”


Jeremiah tells us a little more in chapter 50 about the SNARE or TRAP that Yahweh has laid for Satan.


Jeremiah 50:24.  


I have laid a snare for you, and you are also taken O Babylon, and you were not aware: you are found, (GUILTY as charged) and also caught, (IN you LIE against me by BLAMING me for creating you FLAWED) because you have striven against the LORD.”


Now we know that Satan is the ACCUSER of the brethren who accuses us before God for SINNING But there is a prophecy in Jeremiah 50:20 of a DAY in which the accuser of the brethren will SEEK to find sin among God’s people and NO sin will be found.


Jeremiah 50:20.


“In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve.”


God reserves a crown of life for WHOSOEVER of any of mankind who BELIEVES in his SON, Jesus, as the atonement for their sins. Let us read one more passage of Scripture that prophesies Lucifer being DETHRONED and CUT DOWN in order to be REPLACED by his Messiah to rule as the God of the whole earth.


Please read Ezekiel 17:19-24.


“Therefore thus says the Lord GOD; As I live, surely mine oath that he has despised, and my covenant that he hath broken, even it will I recompense upon his own head. (God said to the Elohim, Let us make man in our image a little lower and inferior to you angels as a TEST to PROVE that even an INFERIOR species of being can live without sin. But Lucifer CHEATED and broke that covenant with God by INTERFERRING with God’s TEST by TRICKING man to sin. And because of Lucifer INTERFERRING with God’s TEST to clear his name of being BLAMED that it was all his fault that Luficfer made war with him, God set a TRAP to catch Satan in his OWN lie)

20.  And I will spread my net upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare, and I will bring him to Babylon and will plead with him there for his trespass that he has trespassed against me. (Keep in mind that many prophecies have a DUAL fulfillment and that God HIDES that second fulfillment) 

21.  And all his fugitives with all his bands shall fall by the sword, and they that remain shall be scattered toward all winds: and you shall know that I the LORD have spoken it. 

22.  Thus says the Lord GOD; I will also take of the highest branch of the high cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the top of his young twigs a tender one, and will plant it upon a high mountain and eminent: (This is speaking of the parable of the two eagles and the fir tree that starts in verse 1. Basically, there are two eagles and the first eagle represents Lucifer that is the PROFANE wicked prince of Israel and the second eagle is Jesus who will REPLACE Lucifer. And Jesus will be a GOOD prince over Israel. And Yahweh the Father is the one doing the WORK to bring all this to pass. The TENDER ONE is speaking of Jesus coming out of the lineage of the children of Israel)

23.  In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it: and it (The TENDER ONE) shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof shall they dwell. 

24.  And all the trees of the field shall know that I the LORD have brought down the high tree, have EXALTED the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the LORD have spoken and have done it.”


In other words, Almighty God, Yahweh, the Father, HIGHLY EXALTED the Son of MAN, Jesus, to REPLACE Lucifer as the God of the whole earth. For you see, God’s Messiahs is prophesied to be CALLED a MIGHTY God in Isaiah 9:6,7 and he shall be CALLED the God of the whole earth in Isaiah 54:5. In Isaiah 54:5 we can CLEARLY see TWO separate beings. One being is already called Yahweh of the host who is ALREADY the God of the whole earth AND the entire UNIVERSE as well. BUT the other being is PROPHESIED to BE called the God of the whole earth and NOT the God of heaven and earth.


Isaiah 54:5.


“For your Maker is your husband; (Let US make man in OUR image speaking of Yahweh AND his Messiah, the Son of MAN, Jesus. Then the rest of this verse IDENTIFIES the TWO makers of the children of Isreal into the IMAGE of God and his Messiah, Jesus) the LORD of hosts is his name; AND your Redeemer (The TENDER ONE) the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.”


Thanks for reading and may God bless you richly as you seek the truth of the WHOLE word of Almighty God. Below is a list of in-depth Bible studies that will have all the Scriptures showing that the BEGINNING in John 1:1 is NOT speaking of THE beginning in eternity past when Yahweh ALONE and BY HIMSELF created the universe. But rather, the beginning in John 1:1 is referring to the beginning 6000 years ago at the FOUNDATION of the earth which is the RE-CREATING of the earth after the destruction of the earth during the WAR in heaven to cast Lucifer out of the third heaven and confine him to the earth’s atmosphere.

“DOES GOD HAVE A 7000 YEAR PLAN OF SALVATION?”


“WHEN DID JESUS BECOME GOD’S ETERNAL SON?”


“WHAT DOES THE FIRSTBORN OF EVERY CREATURE TRULY MEAN?”


“UNDERSTANDING WHY?”


“THE WAR IN HEAVEN---REVELATION 12!”


“WHO IS LUCIFER---IS LUCIFER SATAN?”


And always remember to NOT judge a matte until you hear the WHOLE matter. Proverbs 18:13.
