1. The Spiritual
World is the domain of God, angels, and demons. It is
eternal (2 Cor 4:18).
2. The Temporal World is the domain of creation. It
of Satan and Man
1. God created all things, including the
Heavens and the Earth, angels, man, plants, and animals.
2. God controls all creation (ref. Control Room in
3. God has a purpose and plan for all of creation.
4. The angels were created to serve God and manage creation
(Heb 1:14; Ps 103:20, 21).
a. Angels are arranged in
hierarchies with assigned functions and tasks (ref. Col
b. Satan was the archangel over the
other angels (Ezek 28:14).
5. Satan rejected his creation. He wanted to replace
the Angel of the Lord as the ruler of creation (Isa 14:13,
14). He rebelled and took a third of the angels with him.
6. Satan and the Fallen Angels were judged and sentenced to
the Lake of Fire (Matt 25:41). Satan appealed and God
granted an appeal trial.
7. Man was created to resolve the appeal.
8. Man was created perfect, without sin; but Satan succeeded
in getting the first man and woman to sin, and Satan became their
ruler, and the ruler of the world.
9. The Lord gave the first man and woman a choice of where
they would like to spend eternity – with Him or Satan. They
chose the Lord and received Eternal Life (Gen 1:21).
However, they would continue to live on Earth in Satan's world in
sin until death, and the Lord would have to pay for their sins.
1. Children were born in the human race in sin
and spiritual death, and upon reaching the age of accountability,
each one was given a choice of Salvation or Hades. Those who
chose Salvation were witnesses for God, and those who chose the
default of Hades were witnesses for Satan.
2. As human history unfolded God called out the descendants
of Abraham, the Jews, to be His witnesses and be custodians of His
Word (Gen 12:1, 2, 3). Satan hated the Jews and sought to
3. Jesus Christ came to Earth as perfect humanity, and Satan
had him crucified. Before He died He paid for the sins of
the world to provide Salvation for all mankind (Titus 2:11).
God resurrected Jesus Christ and promoted Him to "King of kings
and Lord of lords" (Rom 6:4; 8:11; Rev 19:16).
4. After Christ's ascension God called out the Church to be
the Royal Family of Christ since the Jews had rejected Him.
5. The Royal Family will rule with Christ in the Millennium;
so, Satan's time is short.
Just as Satan hates Jesus Christ, he hates the Church and seeks to
destroy it. He quickly took over the Roman Catholic Church
with the Prostitute of Babylon, and he continues to oppose
evangelical churches and seeks to neutralize Christians.
7. As the ruler of the world, Satan has deployed a Cosmic
System with a vast army of demons to control institutions and the
lives of people. He controls schools, businesses, sports,
entertainment, and churches. Demons actively influence
everyone's life every day.
8. Satan and his demons are spirits. They operate in
the Spiritual World unseen by people in the Temporal World.
Note, the danger of looking at these creatures is that they are
tricksters (real smoke and mirrors) and can appear in every
9. Satan enters the life of a young child as Baal (1 Cor
7:14). The child also has demons from its parents passed
down through the generations under the Four Generation
Curse (Ex 20:5; Jer 7:18). God deploys Guardian Angels
(Ps 91:11) for the child to protect it and afford the opportunity
of reaching the age of accountability (Matt 18:10). Both
Elect Angels and demons are in the child's life, but worldly
thinking is the norm. By the age of seven the child will be
thoroughly indoctrinated in the devil's world and brainwashed in
the Temporal World. The only hope of recovery is Salvation
upon reaching the age of accountability and years learning Bible
10. Marriage is a Divine Institution that can only function
effectively when sanctified (1 Cor 7:14). The man and woman
must at least forsake all others, but there is much more,
including sanctification from sin (1 Thess 4:3-5; Heb 13:4).
This requires Christians filled with the Holy Spirit. Even
so, the invisible Baal and other family demons are still in the
life from childhood (Jer 7:18; Eph 2:2, 3). Until these
demons are overcome, there will not be harmony in love and
intimacy. Intimate relations are driven by angels and
demons. They are the spice of romance (Song 4:16).
11. Family is a Divine Institution for raising
children. However, unless the parents have recovered from
the Four Generation Curse, the children will be under the
curse. Family demons are passed down to them. For a
child under Baal and in the fourth generation, life can be
hell. Every day demons will invade the family and stir up
discontent. The only hope is to get the family to Church and
12. Schools are institutions for educating children.
However, Satan runs schools through the Prostitute of
Babylon. The children are under the power of Baal and family
curses, and the teachers are under the power of the demon of the
Prostitute of Babylon. The secular subjects taught in
schools will not help against these curses. Even if the
child learns the lessons, the mere act of going to school is an
invitation to demon influence and indoctrination into Satan's
13. Business is a legitimate institution under the Laws of
Establishment. Business is necessary for making a living and
buying goods and services. However, Satan runs businesses
and commerce under the Prostitute of Babylon (Rev 18:9-13).
Both employees and customers are under the spell of Jezebel.
14. Sports contests are thrilling because angels and demons
drive athletes to perform sensational plays. The Prostitute
of Babylon also influences sports, but God decrees the winners and
15. Entertainment can be the work of Elect Angels or
demons. The glory of entertainment comes from angels and
demons. They write the songs, music, scripts and empower the
actors and entertainers.
16. Churches are the only hope of recovery from sin, evil,
and the Cosmic System. Yet, Grace-oriented, dispensational
churches that accurately teach the Word are rare. Churches
have the kinds of problems listed in Revelation 2 and 3.
Satan attacks the Church as the Prostitute of Babylon. He
attacks both pastor and congregation. Pastors are usually
not Spiritually Mature in the first place, but even if they are
many in the congregations under Satan's power are unteachable
(Matt 13:3-4). Both pastors and congregations are under the
power of angels and demons. The Holy Spirit is supposed to
be the teacher, but a person under demon influence quenches
and grieves the Holy Spirit.
1. God is in charge of creation, but angels
and demons make it happen. Angels and demons run the show in
the Spiritual World. They herald events, schedule them, and
make them happen. People do not get a vote. It is not
a volitional issue. However, people are still responsible
for their actions. If a demon puts them to sleep at the
wheel, they are still responsible.
2. God controls creation, but He uses angels to manage
it. They can cause earthquakes, volcanoes, and weather,
rain, snow, and storms. They also manage people, animals,
plants, and the environment.
3. Matter and energy are made from spirit by the Holy
Spirit, and life is made by the Spirit of Life from the Holy
Spirit. All created things whether animate or inanimate
operate at frequencies of Spiritual Light. God and angels
control created things with Spiritual Light (Ezek 28:14).
Angels and demons interfere with Spiritual Light in the body to
cause sickness and disease. For example, Satan causes
cancer, which is known to have a specific light frequency.
4. God controls creation with angels. Angels control
geology and life forms, including man. God directs the
behavior of man through angels. Man is a created being and
under the power of God and his angels or Satan and his
demons. Man is a slave of God and Elect Angels (Lk 1:38; Col
4:12; Rev 7:3) or Satan and demons (Eph 2:2; 2 Tim 2:26; Rev
13:16; 14:9; 20:4).
5. Angels and demons in the Spiritual World direct the lives
of man. They herald events and schedule all
relationships. They direct behavior, such as actions,
reactions, walking, sitting, travel, eating, drinking, and bodily
functions down to the cellular level, digestion, and
metabolism. They even influence the drivers of cars to obey
their commands implicitly. If angels and demons did not
direct the drivers of cars, then the driver would have no contact
with the Cosmic System and be holy sanctified (without sin), and
that is absurd.
6. Angels and demons implement Divine Punishment to cause
and cure every known sickness, disease, bodily ailment and
infirmity. For example, they cause and cure blindness (Gen
19:11; Acts 13:11), deafness (Lk 1:19-20), and pestilence (1 Chron
7. Morality is not an issue in the Spiritual World or even
in the Spiritual Life. This does not condone
immorality. Morality is an issue, however, for society in
the Temporal World. The issue in the Spiritual World is
relationships. The relationships are with God, angels, and
demons, which are all spiritual. Relationships with people
(and their souls) are in the Temporal World.
8. There is a spiritual side of the angelic control of
physical things. Poltergeist demons can make wooden rafters
crack audibly at precisely the right time to herald the arrival of
a demon or a person with a demon. Angels and demons can also
interfere with electrical signals and transmission lines.
They can control stresses and strains in materials to ensure their
failure at precisely the right time. These things are
specified in the Plan of God for creation, but angels and demons
make them happen. This is miraculous. Nothing
happens by accident in the Spiritual World. Everything is
1. God gives the believer a New Spiritual Life
at Salvation (Rom 6:4; 7:6; 2 Cor 5:17; Gal 6:15; Eph 4:23-24; Col
2. Living the New Life requires Spiritual growth and
Sanctification through daily metabolization, testing, and
application of Bible Doctrine. It requires dying to the old
temporal life (Matt 16:25).
3. The New Life comes from a Divine Plan that includes every
minute detail of life in relation to God, angels, demons, people,
and the world.
4. The new believer comes into the Christian life as a
worldly, sinful, slave of Satan with roots that sink deep into the
devil's world. He is under the Four Generation Curse from
5. Coming out of the old life requires a long process of
Sanctification (Rom 6:19, 22; 1 Thess 4:4, 7).
The believer must be separated from the devil's world and become
spiritually strong enough to live his New Life in fellowship with
God (Heb 12:14).
6. The old life of sin and slavery to the Old Sin Nature
must be rejected (Rom 6:11-14; 1 Jn 2:15). The sins of the
old life went to the cross and were crucified (Rom 6:6; Gal 2:20).
7. New Life Testing: God delivers a person over into
His Plan for testing (1 Cor 10:13), and the angels and demons make
a. During testing God decides whether
angels or demons have the upper hand, but both are at work in the
b. Satan may be allowed to tempt, but the
Elect Angels are standing guard (Ps 91:11-12; Matt 18:10).
8. Recovery from the Four Generation Curse: The Four
Generation Curse must be overcome by testing to free from deep
roots of family iniquity. God delivers a person into the
iniquities of the family down to the third and fourth generations
(Ex 20:5; 34:7). The iniquities were the result of demon
a. Angels and demons make it happen.
b. The same angels and demons may be in
the family for many generations.
9. Spiritual Warfare: In the Spiritual Life Satan is
allowed to tempt and to attack the believer. The struggles
with Satan to throw him off are called Spiritual Warfare.
a. God opens the door for Satan to attack
the believer (Job 1:8-12).
b. The believer must recognize the attack
(Divine viewpoint) and resist (1 Pet 5:8-9; Jas 4:7; Rev 12:11).
c. The Lord will empower the believer to
withstand the attack (Ps 23:4).
d. When the test is passed, the believer
will be promoted (Jas 4:6, 10).
10. Walking in the Light/Darkness: The New Spiritual
Life requires walking in the Light and staying out of darkness.
a. God provides the Light (1 Jn 1:7), and
Satan and his demons counterattack with darkness.
b. Satanic attacks of darkness can affect
neurological circuits and cause temporary blind spots that affect
vision, hearing, or the sensory and motor cortex, e.g. strokes and
c. Satanic attacks can affect the soul
and cause many psychological problems, e.g.:
- Mental Attitude Sins
- Dissociation, denial,
- Anxiety, depression,
bipolar disorder, schizophrenia.
- Personality and identity
d. The person in the Light has Capacity
for Life and Love and Happiness (Isa 40:31).
e. The person in darkness is under the
power of Satan and subject to the punishment of God.
Punishment for the believer is relentless all the way to the
- Rebound and apply
doctrine (1 Jn 1:9). "Do not be overcome with evil, but
overcome evil with Good" (Rom 12:21).
- The stream of
consciousness must be functioning as evidenced by Faith, Hope, and
g. Those who walk in darkness do the
desires of Satan (Jn 8:44; 1 Tim 6:10; 1 Jn 2:16).
1. The ultimate objective of the
Spiritual Life is Spiritual Rapport with God (ref.
Rom 12:2). Spiritual Rapport means being in harmony
with God. It means having Divine Viewpoint, understanding
what God is doing, what He is communicating. It means seeing
the Light, being in tune with God, and maintaining a Love
relationship with Him.
2. When Job reached Spiritual Rapport after he passed the
test, God communicated with him through creation. Job
understood what God was communicating by Divine Revelation of the
animals and the constellations. Job did not have rapport
with God when Satan was punishing him. Job was under great
suffering, and God would not help him, but after Job passed the
test, God returned with Love, Happiness, Peace, and Blessing, and
Job was promoted to the new maturity level of Spiritual Rapport.
3. The state of Spiritual Rapport can occur along the way in
the Spiritual Life, but the maturity level of Spiritual Rapport is
a promotion from God after passing His special testing. For
Abraham the test was being willing to sacrifice his son
Isaac. For Job it was suffering from Satan, for Elijah it
was the attack of Jezebel, and for David it was the Absalom
4. Satan's Cosmic System is a barrier that prevents rapport
with God. His Cosmic System is a super sophisticated system
to keep a person from trusting in God. To reach Spiritual
Rapport requires breaking through the Cosmic System barrier and
then maintaining a command post (Edification Complex of the Soul) in the soul
in the Filling of the Holy Spirit. This is accomplished by
Divine testing, which usually involves Spiritual Warfare with
5. Testing for Spiritual Rapport leaves a person isolated
against the Cosmic System all alone, like walking through the
death shadowed valley (Ps 23:4). Friends are all still
slaves to the Cosmic System, as with Job and his friends.
a. As with Job the old life is lost (Matt
b. The grain of wheat must die in order
to produce Divine Good (Jn 12:24-25).
6. Satan is allowed to attack, influence, and interfere with
the believer seeking Spiritual Rapport with God.
7. God is always in control. He opens the door for
Satan and his demons to attack the believer, as He did with Job.
8. Satanic access to the believer often comes through
relationships with other people who are already Satan's slaves.
a. In the Spiritual Realm relationships
with people are relationships with their angels or demons.
b. Satan was acting through Jezebel when
she tried to kill Elijah, who had to journey to the Mountain of
God to achieve Spiritual Rapport.
9. The relationship with Satan and his demons can be
debilitating and deadly. Satan's attacks are
spiritual. They affect the spiritual body and result in all
manner of physical and psychological problems as well as spiritual
10. Promises for enduring the testing and reaching Spiritual
a. The promise of Capacity for Life,
strength, and endurance (Isa 40:31).
- Spiritual Rapport is
freedom from the Cosmic System.
- Spiritual Rapport is
access to the power of God.
- Spiritual Rapport provides
Spiritual endurance and freedom from Spiritual Fatigue induced by the Cosmic
b. The promise of Capacity for Love (1 Jn
2:5; 4:12, 17, 18), Light (1 Jn 1:7; Eph 5:8), Peace (Jn 14:27;
16:33; Nu 6:26; Phil 4:7), Happiness (Jn. 15:11; 1Jn 1:4; Rom.
12:12; 14:17; 15:13; Gal 5:22; Heb 12:2), Rapport ((Rom 15:29; Eph
1:23; 3:19; 4:13).
c. The promise of Wisdom, understanding,
epignosis, Righteousness (Eph 1:18).
