It makes no difference to this bible study, however for the sake of those who mistakenly believe that an effort against “democracy” is an effort against “our country,” it must be understood that America was never set up as a democracy, but decidedly as a Republic (“. . . and to the Republic for which it stands. . . .”). Democracy is mob rule. As it has been pointed out before, “Democracy is two wolves and a chicken sitting down to vote on what’s for dinner.” In any case, regardless of what America is, was, or should be in your opinion, the country is finished. That alone should tell you everything you need to know about the possibilities for any nation that rejects the living God, regardless of its political claims or persuasions. The word of the Lord and the legacy of history tell it all.

Nimrod, On the Plain of Shinar (Observe how much we’re given here into the minds of Satan and his children.)

Genesis 10:8-10 “. . . Nimrod . . . began to be a mighty one . . . in the land of Shinar.”

11:1-9 “And they said, Go to, let us build us a city [1] and a tower [2], whose top may reach unto heaven [3]; and let us make us a name [4], lest we be scattered abroad [5] upon the face of the whole earth.”

(1) Hebrews 13:14 “For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.”

(11:8-10 “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: for he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.”)

(Revelation 21:10-14 “And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God. . . .”)

(2) 2nd Samuel 22:3 “The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is . . . my high tower, and my refuge. . . .” [numerous]

(3) Isaiah 14:12-14 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

[Satan is the head of the kingdom builders. His stock in trade is arrogance, pride, willfulness, glorifying of self and of flesh (a perfect and complete description of modern America.)]

Matthew 23:12 “And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.”

John 10:1 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.”

[Politics, religion, mob rule, and conspiracies all seek some other way, and are the standard operating procedure on planet earth!]

Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”

[Why would you have to build a kingdom when you could be given one worth having?]

(4) 2nd Samuel 7:23 “And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name. . . ?”

Isaiah 56:1-8 “. . . I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.”

[You don’t have to “make a name” for yourself.]

(5) Hebrews 11:12-16 “These all . . . confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. . . . wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.”

[Why would you have to build a city when one is prepared for you?]

(Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.”)

Acts 8:1-4 “Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.”

(The world belongs to Satan. We’re the foreign disease invading and irritating the body under his control! We’re the cancer cells, in the world’s opinion! The worst thing a doctor can do with cancer is to cut into it to get rid of it: he just spreads millions of cancer cells all throughout the body of the person he’s “trying to cure.”

[You might want to read Acts 8:1-4 again.]

Most American Christians simply refuse to believe that Satan, as the “god of this world”, automatically heads the government of this country; that the country belongs to him not to the people (Hebrews 11:16); and that it is completely run by men who are not remotely Christian (although they may for convenience sake, claim to be so):

And the devil . . . shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world. . . . And . . . said unto him, All this power will I give thee . . . for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. [Luke 4:6]

QUESTION: If you believe this verse, but never thought about this verse before, what have you learned?

QUESTION: To whom and to what sort of people would you think that Satan would give power over his kingdom? To somebody like you, or your friends?

[I have observed in Americans (Maybe it’s true of everybody.) a strong aversion to belief in conspiracies, and an unwillingness to ponder wickedness or Satanic infiltration in connection with whatever is “ours” – “our” political party, “our” country, “our” government, “our” church, “our” beliefs, “our” world. I don’t know if this is part of our flesh, or it is instilled by Satan through our training, but it is real. On the other hand, if you believe Luke 4:6, you have to believe in a vast world wide conspiracy, even if you knew nothing about the details of how it works.]

2nd Timothy 3:13 “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”

[While these evil men are seducing and deceiving others, they convince them that there is no conspiracy and that things are not getting “worse”! The problem for you is that, in America, all these people are voting, so that if it’s true that “Your vote counts.”, then you’re screwed, because there’s a lot more of “them.”

Revelation 19:20 “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”

[This is how it ends for the people who do the deceiving, but in the mean time, they are the ones in control of how people think.] (The Leroy Romero syndrome – voting for Hilary because “I think she’ll make a good president.”

Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Proverbs 23:4-7 “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.”

[“In God We Trust”????? (on the dollar bill.) “One nation under God”???? What God? the God of the bible or “the god of this world”?]

2nd Corinthians 4:1-11 (4) “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not. . . .”

Isaiah 6:1-4 “In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.”

Revelation 17:14 “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.”

QUESTION: Will you be voting for your king?

19:16 “And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Revelation 22:20 “He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
