4 Lets Get Dangerous Disneys Darkwing Duck

5 Warning: There will always be a tendency in Christendom to discount the supernatural regardless of the fact that Jesus was raised from the dead... I mean, think about it, RAISED FROM THE DEAD! OMG! The fact is that people have become desensitized to godliness, that true and vital spiritual relationship with both the Father and the Son and therefore, communication with the spirit world is more of an occult thing nowadays than something Christians do on a regular basis. (Major reasons: Manifestations stopped after the book of Acts (The gospel is the only power of God available to the churchman anymore), church on Sunday (We ve done our duty, let s go back to real living) and you can t learn anything new from the Bible (oh really?)) You can t know the players without a program in sports and it s the same in these sessions. The Bible will put you in touch with what is available in the spirit world and will give you some details with which you can better organize your life with them in mind. Your prayer life in particular.

6 Introduction We re not dealing with your mother s angels and demons this is what we were told In the beginning Lucifer, one of the top three (3) angels (archangels I was taught) in heaven (along with Michael and Gabriel), had a fight with God and was cast out of heaven and fell to the earth with a third of all the angels in heaven. He eventually became the serpent that we find in Genesis 3 and was the one that tempted Eve to eat the apple and eventually morphed into Satan (same guy we read about in Job who argues with God about making Job suffer and killing children). Ultimately this evil fallen angel tempts Jesus in the Gospels and Jesus responds and casts out many of the demons that Satan has in his army on earth. This spiritual entity is bothering Christians and non-christians alike even today as the Devil/ Satan. He is assisted by the aforementioned demons (usually this is equated with those third part of all the angels who fell initially) that possess people and cause aberrant behaviors such as those we saw in the movie The Exorcist.

7 Not your mother s angels and demons Is This our Ancient Foe?

8 Of course this is Michael the Archangel right?

9 Why all this flagrant perversion? A portion (only) of Raphael's Sistine Madonna (1512), but appears on greeting cards, coffee cups, wrapping paper, etc.

10 How can we fix this? Know thine ENEMY! What the hell is this? Medieval theology s spheres of angelic hierarchy (Cherubs, putti, angels, and cupids) Biblically it s sons of god, gods, angels, principalities, powers, mights, dominions, glories, cherubim (the real ones ), seraphim, and more. What s wrong with calling a spade a spade? Because the spiritual realm of the Bible is so otherworldly and downright scary for most people we (the Church) need to tone it down (think: sons of God in Genesis 6 were men). This (our ignorance of all things spiritual ; who they are, what they do and don t do, how we can tap in to the good stuff), is the reason we get our heads bashed in on a continual basis; why devils devastate individuals, families and countries.

11 So.A Brief history of Satan Not part of this teaching, but it didn t cost you anything The terms satan and devil, when used to designate God s Archenemy (as we know him in Christendom today), are not found in the Hebrew Scriptures (cf. - The satan is found in Numbers 22: 22, 32; 1 Samuel 29:4; 2 Samuel 19:23; 1 Kings 5:18; 1 Kings 11:14,23,25 1 Chr. 21:1; Job 1:6ff, 12; 2:1ff, 6f; Ps. 109:6; Zech. 3:1f and devil(s) (sometimes translated demons ) only in Lev. 17:7; Deut. 32:17; 2 Chr. 11:15; Ps. 106:37). At the time of the writing by the Hebrew prophets those terms did not mean what they mean to us today (i.e.- God s Evil Opponent: Satan - Matt. 4:10; 12:26; 16:23; Mk. 1:13; 3:23, 26; 4:15; 8:33; Lk. 4:8; 10:18; 11:18; 13:16; 22:3, 31; Jn. 13:27; Acts 5:3; 26:18; Rom. 16:20; 1 Co. 5:5; 7:5; 2 Co. 2:11; 11:14; 12:7; 1 Thess. 2:18; 2 Thess. 2:9; 1 Tim. 1:20; 5:15; Rev. 2:9, 13, 24; 3:9; 12:9; 20:2, 7). Christians know of the DEVIL/ SATAN (here capitalized as named entities) as the one who tempted the Messiah, the one whom Jesus foiled in so many ways (Colossians 2:15) and who oppresses Christians in any number of respects even today. Progressive Revelation is the key. Just as our picture of the Messiah grew as Scripture was written (over time), so the picture of Satan does. His real colors are eventually revealed.

12 The Campaign to Reverse the Curse After the Inter-testamental Period (approximately 400 BC to Jesus) God sends Gabriel to announce an Assault on a Kingdom Heavenly Host show up at the Birth (to the shepherds) The Divine Council Plow the road for Messiah (see Baptism and John s quotation from Isaiah 40) angels Minister to Jesus (see Temptation) Luke 4: 14 Jesus comes in the power of the spirit

13 Kingdom of God upon you (Luke 11:20) Jesus ministry (one year) the acceptable year of the Lord (Luke 4: and Isaiah 61: 1-3) June 7 th ; 27 C. E. in a synagogue in Nazareth, his home town.

14 Birth Announcer ment sent Gabriel (an angel messenger) and the announcement (wings or no wings; halo or no halo; archangel or just angel?) Luke 1:26-ff Note the context of this stuff: Son of the Highest (32); power of the Highest (35); John would be a prophet of the Highest (76) the Highest what? Daniel 9:21 Gabriel the man fly swiftly (Hebrew means to be weary cf NASB), but the man part is important. Book of Enoch (written in the Inter-testamental Period (circa B.C.) He becomes an archangel

15 The Annunciation in Art This certainly was the way it was.don t you think? Fra Angelico ( )

16 A hundred years later These guys are not in the story, but begin to show up in art. Giovanni Lanfranco ( )

17 And again another 100 years later Not really watching the scene are they? Duh, here they are again those crazy Italians and they re multiplying Paolo de Matteis ( )

18 Angels at his birth Were they singing.maybe Sweetly singing ore the plains? No, but look at EXACTLY what was said (Luke 2: 9-15) 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord (this is a DUDE! Just look him up ) came upon them (the shepherds), and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. Most of us know why this is said when spiritual entities show up it s our first inclination along with falling prostrate to the ground. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host (This is an ARMY no really, the Hebrew expression Lord of Hosts ) praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. 15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

19 Angels with the Shepherds Angel of the Lord??? A little more fierce But we certainly have a very fierce set of cherubs (maybe putti?) as your heavenly host Note the date after the Reformation began Govert Teunisz Flinck (1639)

20 Assignment Look up angel of the Lord and tell me whether a fat, fleshy, pink creature with wings or someone to be shall we say reckoned with What do Biblical cherubs look like? Hint: the Hebrew means to bless, but they had flaming swords at the entrance/ exit to the Garden. And if you think it s physical (only) place well do some rethinking.

21 Glory to God WHERE? In the highest (heaven); Get a map get an ANE (Ancient Near East) celestial worldview Remember what I ve been teaching?

22 Psalm 104:3 - Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind: Psalm 148:4 Genesis 1: 7-9 Exodus 20: 4 ANE Cosmic Geography The Big Picture Sheol/ Hades The Highest Third Heaven 2 Cor 12:2 Heaven #2 Genesis 1:8; sun, moon and stars in the firmament Heaven #1 2 Sam 21:10; Revelation 19:17 Tartaros in Denis Lamoureux s Evolutionary Creation: Bob s Notes

23 Jesus Baptism The Gospel writers (generally) quote what we know of as Isaiah 40:1-5. Most Christians think it was John who was making the highway straight for our God.not. A good key to research is to see what the original context is when someone is quoting Scripture, Isaiah 40:1-5 JV Isaiah 40:1 Comfort ye (plural), comfort ye (plural) my people, saith your God. 2 Speak (plural) ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry (plural) unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins. 3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye (plural) the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. The point here is that those whom God is addressing are His council members; those heavy hitters who make up the heavenly host (army). It is they whom God encouraged to plow the road (so to speak) for the Messiah.

24 Temptation in the Wilderness Desert Area (near Qumran and Masada) Baptism at Bethany beyond Jordan; wilderness probably on west side of the Dead Sea

25 Meet the Forker Temptation (in the Wilderness) 1. Matthew 4: Mark 1:12,13 3. Luke 4:1-13 Kingdoms of the world all these things I will give you Hmmm, sounds familiar I will ascend I will exalt I will sit I will be like the Most High

26 A Storm approaches 2 months (April and May; 27 C.E.) of travel and stage setting Meets Andrew and Peter (sea of Galilee) then Philip and Nathanael (Bethsaida) wedding in Cana (water to wine) mother, please, it s not my time yet goes to Capernaum (edge of the Sea of Galilee) back to Jerusalem, talks to Nicodemus he and his cousin (John) baptize in Judea Goes north to Sychar (women of Samaria at the well (Jacob s well? the hour cometh ); note that Samaritans are not really Jews back to Cana (heals man s sick son in Capernaum) his cousin is thrown into prison (lets add some mental pressure!!) back to Jerusalem for Pentecost and back to Galilee finally back to his home town Nazareth and goes to church (OK, OK, synagogue but seriously this was church to the Jews; synagogue is not a biblical thing it s a cultural thing )

27 Map of Jesus early travels

28 The Acceptable Year Luke 4: And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read (who reads in the synagogue? Guys in the front the leaders; Jesus was trained as a Pharisee (cf. - John 1:26)) 17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

29 Isaiah 61: The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

30 The End Times (that s all, folks ) Day of Vengeance of our God

31 the day of vengence of our God Isaiah 27:1 In that day (what day?), the LORD will punish with his sword, his fierce, great and powerful sword, Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; he will slay the monster (dragon) that is in the sea. -

32 Getting out of Dodge Jesus leaves his home town of Nazareth. Jesus moves out of his mother s house and goes to Capernaum (lives by the sea of Galilee) Calls his friends as Disciples (getting serious here) Over the next stretch of time (June to September, 27 CE) Jesus has many, many incidents with these foul, unclean, deaf and dumb spirits. He heals, he does miracles,etc.; it s a year of awesome activity. Mark 1:16-28 and Luke 4:13-5:11

33 Demonization Casting out Devils (still don t like the term demons even though it s a transliteration of the Greek term). Call them what they are Devils. Don t call them devil spirits (a mistake we may have gotten into in the past). It s not a Biblical term! Unclean spirits is. Also, possessed by (or vexed with or hath ) a devil (KJVism) is demonized in the Greek. daimonizomai {dahee-mon-id'-zom-ahee} daimo,nizomai

34 List of Confrontations Scriptures in the Gospels where Jesus confronted spirits, evil spirits, unclean spirits, foul spirits, deaf and dumb spirits, devils or a devil. 1. Matthew 4:24; 8:16, 28-34; 9:32-33; 10:1; 12:22; 15: 22; 17: Mark 1:23; 3:11, 5:2-20; 6:7; 7:2; 9: 17-25, 28; 16:9, 3. Luke 4:33, 41; 8:2-3,33; 9: 38-42; 10:17 (the 70); 11:14 4. John only one verse sort of says something; no direct dealings. Why?

35 Lions and Legion and Swine OMG! Let s look at one near Capernaum Matthew 8: 1-9: 1 (Read it ) Multitudes, leper, Centurion (not a Jew), Peter s mother-in-law, many demonized, healings, people mobbing him let s go to the other side of the sea oh, a Scribe (scholar) comes to him follow me, Calms the sea (now his people are freaking out) Country of the Gaderenes (verse 28-34) Goes home to Capernaum (all in a days work)

36 Lots of dealings with the Adversary (June through September, 27 C.E.) Crisscrossing the Sea of Galilee 1. Mark 4:35-5:1 - Calming the Sea (Mt. 8:18-27; Lk. 8:22-25) 2. Mark 5:20,21 3. Mark 6: Mark 6:45ff - Walking on Sea (Mt. 14: 22-33; Mk. 6:45-52; Jn. 6:16-21) 5. Mark 8:10 6. Mark 8:13

37 Walkin on the water Why? Let s look at Job 9:8; Psalm 89:9 and 93:4

38 Out of the frying pan and into the Fire September 20, 27 C.E. (Jesus turns 30 years of age) - End of December -3 more months! The Region of Tyre and Sidon: Areas promised to Israel, but inhabited by Gentiles (cf. Matt. 15: 21-28); Jesus wanted some peace and quiet (Mark 7:24), but devils Through the midst of the region of Decapolis (Mark 7: 31): Areas completely in habited by Romans. Feeding of the 4000 and lots of stuff Across the sea to west side: Confrontations and Teachings Across the sea to Bethsaida: Heals the Blind man To the region of Caesarea Philippi Hmmm

39 The Mount of Transfiguration Jesus In Your Face tour; complete with roadies (Peter, James and John) it was a true mountaintop experience. Going to his death in Jerusalem Why are these areas important in the spiritual scheme of things?

40 Mt Hermon: The Where of the Transfiguration

41 Walking 35 miles to make a statement to whom? Could it be.satan???

42 Gates of Hell (Matt. 16:18) Where is that? The Region of Caesarea Philippi (verse 13): What s the big deal? Dan: Wait a minute, why are they there? They weren t there in the book of Joshua Bashan (place of the serpent): What was it? Who was there in the Hebrew Scriptures? Og, king of Bashan (look him up) Panias: Greek god Pan Let s make one of the most controversial verses in the Bible even more controversial (verse 17) Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah; For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. (18) And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock (possibly Mount Hermon, not Jesus and certainly not Peter) I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

43 Areas given to the 12 Tribes After the Exodus (Book of Joshua)

44 Areas of the 12 Tribes (After the Book of Judges; 300 years later) Let s focus on the Tribe of Dan how d they get so far north? This was the center of Baal worship in the ANE

45 Transfiguration This was an announcement/ an achievement of sorts; that Jesus was coming to town (Going to Jerusalem Feast of Unleavened Bread). He was announcing to the principalities and powers that his coming demise would rock their spiritual world Moses and Elijah in a vision; God gives Jesus a pep talk before his suffering; This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

46 One final Shot: Sending out the 70 Luke 10: 1-24 In your face to the sons of God (70 nations) What does Jesus say about Satan falling Lucifer will fall in the day of the Lord (Isaiah 13, 14 and Revelation 12) Perspective about Devils and dealing with them (verse 20)
