Understanding The Playbook of Cycles

Ecclesiastes 1:4-11

One generation passes away, and another generation comes;
But the earth abides forever.
The sun also rises, and the sun goes down,
And hastens to the place where it arose.
The wind goes toward the south,
And turns around to the north;
The wind whirls about continually,
And comes again on its circuit.
All the rivers run into the sea,
Yet the sea is not full;
To the place from which the rivers come,
There they return again.
All things are full of labor;
Man cannot express it.
The eye is not satisfied with seeing,
Nor the ear filled with hearing.
That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which it may be said,
“See, this is new”?
It has already been in ancient times before us.
There is no remembrance of former things,
Nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come
By those who will come after.

One generation passes away, and another comes. The new generation comes and they say “See, this is new.”

When in all actuality, what the new generation see as new happened in the previous generation or generations before.

How could this be?

First, the nature of man is consistent with satan. Second, when you die, the demons that used the last generation only bring about the same playbook as they search the world for people with certain preferences regarding sin.

Then the enticement comes. Enticement only come to those that have been observed to have inclinations to certain behavior patterns.

When you want to understand the movement of enemies, you watch them.

Demons are not your friends. They hate you with a very deep merciless passion. Demons are without compassion. Their only mission is to get you into hell by any means necessary.

And if you get out of the kingdom of darkness, those same demons that were assigned to you want another chance to get you back. And if they can’t get you back, they will think with minds of an assassin.

You’re assassination is planned. 11 of 12 apostles of the Lamb including the Lamb Himself, were assassinated.

Matthew 12:43-45

“When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.

Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.”

If you decide to walk away from the Lord, those same demons that had you before will make you worse than before.

The devil watched Adam and Eve to see which one was the weak one. It was determined that Eve would be the target. As a result of her inability to maintain the Scriptures, she was deceived.

As a result, the Lord confined all under sin.

The play in the playbook is clear.

1. Observe your target.

2. Once their desires become apparent, entice them.

3. If they’re drawn away, inundate them, lie to them.

4. Keep them overwhelmed with thoughts of how good it felt.

5. Promise them that it gets better every time.

6. Teach them to resist any attempts to change because you can’t do without it.

This is different but the cycle is about keeping you bound.

But on a different note, the cycle or racial attitudes is the same play. The devil knows that you get upset when another Black person gets killed.


George Floyd will not be the last racial killing.

We all say “This has got to stop.”

But if you were to look at this honestly, this will not stop.

You’re a pessimist. Nope. Has any political address or law stopped this?

Will any political solution stop this? Nope.

Just like mass shootings with firearms. Has any law stopped the shooting? “This has got to stop!!!!!”

I know only one way that violence will stop.

When Jesus said, “You must be born again,”

That’s how this stops. If every person get saved today, racism stops, evil stops. But we know that man is unwilling to let go of sin because man loves sin more than they love God.

So the next race killing will take place. The next shooting will take place. It doesn’t have to when man gives up its love for sin and gives their heart to the Lord.

The playbook of satan is the same.

The only way we break the cycle is when we’ve had enough of satan and sin.

Until then, the wheel in the cycle goes round and round, round and round……….

The Minister's Crucible is designed to inform the Body of Christ about the inner workings of the ministry. The word Crucible from Latin, is "crux" where we get the word "cross" from. It also means a "metal container" where metals and other substances are melted or are subjected to higher temperatures, put to the temperature test. The Lord Jesus said "If any man desires to follow after Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me." Let's take up our cross and follow Him.
