In Eden, approximately 6,000 years ago, a line was drawn in the sand of time. The diabolical antagonist, the seed of the serpent, possessed an implacable and boundless hatred toward the God-protagonist, the seed of the woman. The two camps came into being as a result of disobedience by our first parents to a simple command. The irony of it all, is that they possessed everything God had offered—immortality, peace, harmony, intimacy with their Creator and with each other in marriage, stewards of a vast storehouse of natural resources and companionship amongst all of God’s creatures. God had blessed our first parents with a moral conscience and then given them a simple command to follow. Instead of embracing, acknowledging, and accepting what Providence had declared, they played God and CHOSE right and wrong.
Since that time man’s free-will has been the bane of the gospel of Jesus Christ—bruising the heel of Jesus' followers. This conflict continues. There are no prisoners-of-war. There are NO INNOCENT VICTIMS. There are no innocents in hell! Lest you forget, there are only two camps; however, one has already been declared the Victor. Seconds before giving up the ghost, Jesus Christ proclaimed from Calvary to the present, “It is finished.” Three and a half years await his people Israel. Two witnesses stand ready to proclaim Messiah to his people . . . And 144,000 sealed, Jewish evangelists are among Christ’s army. Why wait? Enlist now. Soldier for the Victor not the vanquished.

Outside of the Bible's objective, historical witness, who has wrested the narrative away from the truth? Man and Satan, of course. The battle for what people believe, how they conduct their lives, what history records, the role of education, and eventually a person's spiritual well-being, are all profoundly influenced by information disclosed in the public square, which in turn shapes a culture's identity.
II Corinthians 10:4-6
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
This verse states two important points. First, God's thoughts in the believer, are not carnal. These spiritual, and therefore eternal thoughts, possess the capacity to neutralize, oppose and replace the negative wicked thoughts and imaginings of Satan and men. This captivation of evil thoughts occurs when we put on the mind of Christ, being filled with the Spirit. Secondly, when Godly obedience is observed and practiced, the saint will be ready to revenge all disobedience.
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The single greatest threat that emerged from the garden of Eden affecting man’s eternal relationship with his Creator, was the belief that man could become God. This sin is known as man’s free-will. The apostle Paul devoted an entire book, Galatians, on the sinister leaven of this pernicious doctrine of man. In Galatians 1:8, 9 repeating himself twice in rapid-fire succession, Paul went so far as to say, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” It will be noted that the four elements assuring the subversion of the gospel are:
And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
The present conflict in America is nothing new. It has been raging for more than 6,000 years. It is much more than an information war involving cyber warfare. It involves more than reducing the world’s population by a significant number. This will be a demographic tsunami of unimaginable proportions, the likes of which have not been experienced since the flood of Noah. When all is said and done, it goes even further than changing God’s human design and uniqueness of every individual on this planet, namely trans-humanism.
Its goal is to send as many people to hell as possible. I won’t ask you to believe me . . . Just look at history. Not only was this grim truth revealed in the message and time Jesus delivered it to the world, but how that message has been packaged, namely through religious collectivism. It is the single greatest threat we face--a man made Luciferian, globalist cabal.
Finally, the spoils in this conflict are the souls of men, of which Jesus Christ himself said no price or comparison could be made. In order to understand this eternal conflict one has to go back to the beginning, to one of the most ancient documents we possess, where it all started, in the divine theater revealed from the inspired scriptures as given in Genesis 1-3.
The conflict, starting in Eden, involved our parents, Adam and Eve. In Genesis 3 the inerrant scriptures record that our parents fell to the lie of Satan. What was that lie? The lie was that they could become God. Also known as the heresy of man’s free-will, this established man rather than God as the guide of man’s soul. This is in contrast to acknowledging God’s self-evident truths and his consistent laws within nature. In Eden therefore, our first parents were confronted with choosing which laws they would obey OR acknowledging God’s established laws. The root of all rebellion lay within self and the elevation of man as God. Its fruit: fear, accursedness, along with spiritual and physical death. The liberty of man’s soul lay in acknowledging truth. Its fruit : assurance, blessedness, along with spiritual and physical life.
The longer I study the Bible (46 years), the more I realize how much bad Bible teaching there is. This is no less true of the origin of Satan, his character and his fallen angels. In Revelation 12:4 a profound truth emerges according to the CONTEXT. It says a rebellion of 1/3rd of the angelic host and Satan, as well as their heavenly expulsion, did not occur until after Jesus' incarnation or birth. This explains the New Testament's sudden appearance and explosion of demonic activity on earth, while in the Old Testament it is virtually absent. Also, according to Jude 6 we learn that the rebel angels that fell are held "in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day."
