“Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.
And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”
Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.”
All over the United States and around the world, political leaders and law enforcement officers are bowing down to radical extreme anti authority people.
It’s always been the goal of satan to get man to bow down to him. Man was created in the image of God according to Genesis 1:26-28. Man was never created to bow to another man or to any images of beasts.
satan has always been trying to get God to bow to him but the created will never make the Creator bow down. The clay has no power over the Potter.
What we’re seeing is man trying to show humility but it’s not about humility.
It’s about submission.
The current riots and protests have been laced with leaders compelling politicians and law enforcement to submit to their conditions.
This is alarming because with the COVID-19 lockdown was about man submitting to governmental authority, A killing took place, and now protesters are compelling government to bow down to them.
This isn’t about the free exercise of peaceful protests. This is about bowing down in worship to avoid further damage as a compelling threat.
“Then a herald cried aloud: “To you it is commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages, that at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, you shall fall down and worship the gold image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up; and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”
Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah were confronted with a compelling decree and defied the decree because to bow down to anyone but God is sure eternal punishment. The world’s hell is but for a moment, but God’s punishment of eternal banishment is forever.
We know how this ends. The Lord Jesus showed up, protected, they were pulled out with no harm. However, we see today that persecution will come with harm and death. But most importantly, the eternal reward for holding fast to the confession of our faith without wavering, is of great price before the Lord.
“So these governors and satraps thronged before the king, and said thus to him: “King Darius, live forever! All the governors of the kingdom, the administrators and satraps, the counselors and advisors, have consulted together to establish a royal statute and to make a firm decree, that whoever petitions any god or man for thirty days, except you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions. Now, O king, establish the decree and sign the writing, so that it cannot be changed, according to the law of the Medes and Persians, which does not alter.” Therefore King Darius signed the written decree.”
We all know the rest of the story.
Daniel wouldn’t bow. He was thrown into the lion’s den, and God kept him, validating Daniel’s justifiable act of defiance to never bow to another god.
Believers today must never denounce the Lord Jesus and bow to other gods no matter the threats and anger.
Believers that associate with BLM and other organizations have only one goal. To get you to bow and worship their gods. Many will say that there’s no idol gods, it’s perfectly fine to bow to show solidarity and humility.
Your knee wasn’t created by BLM or others.
God created your knees.
“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
All across the world, we see people bowing to these organizations and this is a direct desire of satan to receive worship. This came from heaven where there was a war, for which he and a third of the angels of heaven were forever cast down to the earth (see Revelation 12:3-4).
Isaiah 14:12-15 and Ezekiel 28:11-19 tells the story of what took place to fill in the blanks of the story of satan’s rebellion in heaven.
Slowly, as man races towards lawlessness, man will ultimately enter in a complete worship of satan. Incremental bowing will, MUST lead to ultimate bowing in worship to satan himself.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 shows that the devil will be in the temple. What temple? The rebuilt temple in Jerusalem receiving worship. So all of these things that we’re seeing today is conditioning people to bow in worship to satan.
All this will be accomplished with the threat of bodily harm and death.
Those of you that know professed believers that are marching and bowing with BLM, compel them to “…come out from among them and be separate, Says the Lord.”
Otherwise, should the Lord return and you not make it, satan will not let you off. You will be compelled to bow down and worship or face death. And should you denounce the Lord and worship the devil, you’re now an enemy of the cross.
But even worse. Banished to spend time in hell, and then after the Great White Throne Judgment, banished forever in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone where the smoke of your torment will ascend forever.
