CONSPIRACY

Then, all the boys were killed at the birth of Moses… Satan is desperate to prevent the birth of the Promised Seed… and he kills and he kills and he kills…

In Genesis 3:15 we read, “I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.”

By Genesis 6:4, we read, “The Nephilim were on the earth both in those days and afterward, when the sons of God came to the daughters of mankind, who bore children to them. They were the powerful men of old, the famous men.”

King James retains the literal translation that other versions change in Genesis 6:9, “These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.”

“Perfect in his generations”, is literal but because they do not understand what is being said here, other versions say things like “righteous among his contemporaries”. We will accept the literal translation here.

So, what is the conspiracy here? Let me put it in story form, so that you may understand. Satan has tempted Eve, Eve has brought in Adam and he has fallen as well. God catches up with Satan and curses him. Satan tempted Eve in an attempt to ruin the plan of God.

What is the Plan of God? To be surrounded, in Heaven, by people and Angels who, having had another choice, have chosen, of their own free will, to stick with God… In God’s Plan, everyone in Heaven is there because they love him and want to be there… This will be the joy of eternity.

If Adam and Eve were to disobey God, they would lose Heaven, but more importantly to Satan, God would lose Adam and Eve.

When Adam and Eve sinned, God cursed the already damned fallen angel, Satan. In that conversation, God lets out some information… “I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.” A coming human… One of the seed of the woman, is going to deal a fatal blow to Satan… This is frightening. Satan must come up with a plan.

In Genesis six, we see that plan put into action. The sons of God… the same sons of God we find, with Satan, in Heaven, in the Book of Job, fallen Angels… begin to pick out human women and make children with them. These children are the Nephilim, giants. These are the ones that later generations would call “gods”. These, being neither the seed of the woman nor the sons of God, were damned souls… for them, there was no redemption. When they died, their souls became the disembodied demons who wonder the world, seeking bodies to inhabit. These are the demons who begged to be incarnated in pigs rather than be returned to the realm of the dead, when Jesus chased them out of the demoniac… but I digress.

If the plan were successful, the seed of the woman would cease to exist… replaced by a damned race that could not inhabit God’s Heaven nor produce the dreaded seed that would mortally wound the Devil. It is a plan that almost succeeded.

This is where the exact, original phrase is important, “Noah was… perfect in his generations.” Noah was a godly and righteous man and that is important but that he was “perfect in his generations” is even more important. This means that Noah had no mixed blood in his veins… Not one ounce of the blood of the “sons of God”. Almost every living soul had become mixed but Noah was perfect in his generations… not generation but generations… Noah could pass on the seed of the woman that would destroy Satan.

And thus, the flood… All of Satan’s seed is destroyed but the Seed of the Woman is preserved…

Then, all the boys were killed at the birth of Moses.

And then, all the boys were killed at the birth of Jesus.

Satan is desperate to prevent the birth of the Promised Seed… and he kills and he kills and he kills.

But Jesus is born, so Satan kills him, but in killing him, he fulfills the Plan of God and brings on his own destruction…

So why is this important? Because this Election, these candidates, all that is happening here and around the world… all of it, is a part of the Devil’s plan to rule the world and defeat Jesus Christ at Armageddon… Satan sees Armageddon as his last chance to retain his position as god of this world and avoid Hell. Satan is desperate.

Do you think that the race between Donald and Hillary is just an accident? Just the way it worked out? No, it was planned… they were chosen and even if the Devil makes a mistake and the wrong one gets elected, he will be happy… either one will do his will.

THE KEY TO THE CONUNDRUM

Was Calvin predestined to be wrong? Did Wesley choose to be wrong? Was it the other way around?

There have been reports of a Ministerial Association meeting in an unnamed American city. It seems that, very early in the meeting, the conversation moved to predestination versus free will. It got so heated that they divided into two groups… on opposite sides of the room.

A Pastor, held up by a hospital visit, came in late. He approached the first group and asked if he could join them. “Why did you pick our group? asked a member of the group. “You were the closest to the door and there is an empty chair here.” replied the hapless Pastor. “You cannot join our group unless you were sent,” replied the leader of the group. “Go over there, they will take you.”

Approaching the other group, an Armenian spoke up, “Why are you coming over here? “They sent me” said the now frustrated Pastor. “Well go away,” the man said, “you cannot join our group except it be of your own free will!”

There are a hundred verses that seem to support predestination and election and a hundred more that support free will. If you insist on being in one corner or the other, you must emphasize one group of verses, while down playing or trying to explain away the others. Truth is, the Bible teaches a limited free will within the framework of predestination… both are true and neither cancels out the other.

There is a key verse that both Calvinists and Armenians hate with equal fervor:

“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29)

For as much as that verse is hated in both camps, it remains the key to the conundrum.
