Volume 4, Issue 3 - May 2003 “I have set a watchman upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night. You that make mention of YHWH, keep not silence”. Isaiah 62:6
and weapons of mass corruption Daniel 12:4 “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased .”
to Daniel's decree, the
prophecies written about the nations that would rise to power [and increase in knowledge at the time-of-the-end] were hidden from previous generations… but, now have been revealed!! Twentieth century man's transportation, communications and [so-called] scientific revolution has thrown us headlong into a perpetual, spiraling cyclone of “medical experimentation” and “information warfare” (IW), firewalls and all, with no way out. Computer technicians, employed by the Defense Information Systems Agency (headed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation), stated that future conflicts won’t be won by shooting down the enemy’s aircraft but by shutting down its computers. A June 16, 2001 USA Today article indicated that they defend the U. S. military’s networks against hackers and computer attacks from other nations, but they also launch computer virus invasions that will bring down a foe’s communications networks, financial systems and power grids. But the U.S. and The Pentagon admit that they have been victimized as they have victimized other nations. The article made it apparent that, three (3) months before 9/11, foreign nations had been studying our communications networks, financial system and electrical power grids FOR YEARS!!
“A sound of battle is in the land, and of great destruction”. Jeremiah 50:22
In 1994, hackers broke into a computer at Griffith Air Force Base and also penetrated the Korean Atomic Research Institute, NASA, the Goddard Space Center and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. On Thanksgiving, the "Internet Liberation Front" wreaked havoc and mayhem for GE, IBM, Pipeline and others by hacking into their computer systems. In 1995, Defense Department computer files came under attack 250,000 times. About 65% of the attempts (162,500) were successful!!! By October 1999, a full scale investigation, code named Moonlight Mase, had been underway for almost a year. The operation began to investigate a major effort to pierce U.S. government and private sector computer networks. According to Reuters News, Michael Vatis, who heads the FBI-led National Infrastructure Protection Center (NIPC), informed the Judiciary Subcommittee on Technology and Terrorism that Moonlight Maze involved the NIPC, other federal agencies as well as international counterparts. He continued by verifying that intruders had stolen “unclassified but still sensitive information about essential defense technical research matters” AND the effort seems to have originated in Moscow [Russia]!!
“O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy The Watchman – The United Congregation of Israel
covetousness.” Jeremiah 51:13 Newsweek Magazine reported in the September 20 issue that the Moonlight Maze suspects were “crack cyberspooks from the Russian Academy of Sciences, a government supported organization that interacts with Russia’s top military labs”. The article went on to state that the cyber theft could have included classified U.S. naval codes and information on missile guidance systems. The Pentagon, however, denies that the theft involved classified information. Moscow also denies involvement and says the culprits are unknown.
Jeremiah 51:13 “O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness.” Newsweek Magazine reported in the September 20th issue that the Moonlight Maze suspects were “crack cyberspooks from the Russian Academy of Sciences, a government supported organization that interacts with Russia’s top military labs”. The internet was originally designed to be a network communications system for an international group of expert scientists sharing information and scientific research, but now internet airways are open to the general public. Since the Pentagon uses this same non-classified, unsecure commercial network in approximately 95% of its communications, no special effort had to be made to launch a cyber attack against the Pentagon. In the year 2000 alone, 413 intruders broke into U.S. Military networks; and the weapons used? …viruses! Computer viruses are about superiority of one nation over another!! In July 2001, The Code Red virus was released. The U.S. Government warned computer users worldwide to protect themselves against the malicious virus program. Ronald Dick, also a former head of the FBI's National Infrastructure Protection Centre (NIPC), said worms such as Code Red are enough to cause the meltdown of the internet because they spread across networks, like a worm, infecting new machines without computer users having to do anything at all. [They scan the internet looking for vulnerable computers and will automatically install itself once a target has been identified]. Right behind Code Red, on July 25, 2001, the W32/Nimda worm took advantage of back doors left behind by the Code Red worm. The Nimda virus quietly attacked Wall Street 2 months prior to 9/11, costing America $3 billion but, had it hit without 9/11 occurring on it’s heels, it would have been a huge news story]. A similar virus, W32/Slammer, was the one that brought down the U.S. banking and 911 systems spreading around the world in 10 minutes. The fastest spreading virus in history, it infected 90% of computer network servers in August 2001. The Code Red II worm was launched right behind Slammer in August (the same month).
Psalms 137:8 “O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us”. The USA Today article boasted of America’s defensive capabilities against against viruses as well as their formidable arsenal of offensive computer computer weapons called “Trojan horses” such as: • Logic bombs – Malicious codes that can be triggered on command. • Worms – Programs that reproduce themselves and cause networks to overload. overload.
• Sniffers – “Eavesdropping” pro-grams that can monitor and steal data in a network. network.
A Trojan horse is simply a virus program that purports to do one thing but does something else that you don’t know about. It has, so to speak, a public agenda that is harmless, and a private agenda that is not. One particular sub-category of trojans makes it possible for someone else to access your

1 Corinthians 3:19 “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness”.
All of their boasting [which was pre-911] was called into question by a PBS Frontline documentary entitled Cyber War. During the April 24, 2003 broad-cast, America’s vulnerability in “information warfare’ was completely laid bare. The issue of Cyber War began to command urgent attention following 9/11 when 54 scientists and a distinguished group of former national leaders and intelligence experts wrote an open letter to the President. They are quoted as saying, “The critical infrastructure of the United States, including electrical power, finance, telecommunications, healthcare, transportation, water, defense, and the internet are highly vulerable to cyber attacks”. The Department of Defense developed information warfare strategies that were used in the first Gulf War, Kosovo, Afghanistan AND most recently in the war with Iraq. Richard Clarke, former chairman of the White House Critical Infrastructure Protection Board said, “What we found on Al Qaeda computers was that members of Al Qaeda were [from outside the United States] doing reconnaissance in the United States on our critical infrastructure”. They’ve also studied U.S. building codes, and requirements as well as materials used in building structures. They’ve concluded that one target appears to be the country’s electric power grid and the exploitation of vulnerabilities in the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems that utility companies use to remotely monitor and control their operations. This can occur in less than 2 minutes, thus, leaving American cities in the dark. If it occurred, the very worst case scenario “could be the loss of power for six (6) months or more!” T and researched this activity it led to the discovery that other nations had already conducted 2 full years of computer probing and espionage undetected before being discovered. As the U.S. heightened it’s defense against computer attacks, hackers would improve the sophistication of their attacks; turning Cyber War into a perpetual game of cat and mouse. Ron Dick told Frontline the thing that keeps him awake at night is the thought of a physical attack on the U.S. combined with a Cyber attack that disrupts the ability of first responders to access 911 systems. Bible prophecy has described exactly this type of scenario at the beginning stages of the destruction of America…her shores are taken, her communications are down and there is chaos in the land…
Jeremiah 51:28-32 “Prepare against her the nations with the kings of the Medes (Russians)…And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of the LORD shall be performed against Babylon…The mighty men of Babylon have forborn to fight…their might hath failed; One post shall run to meet another, and one messenger to meet another, to shew the king of Babylon that his city is taken at one end, And that the passages are stopped, and the reeds they have burned with fire, and the men of war are affrighted”.

BEAM ME UP??!! 1 Corinthians 1:27 “God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise…and the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty..” Having none of the wisdom found in Job 39: 16-27, the leaders of this world give the impression that all their accomplishments in technology and science are done by their own [independent] means. Their eyes are fixed firmly on what they believe is the final destination of the righteous [heaven] instead of believing truth….that the reward of the just is STORED UP in heaven. While failing to concentrate on doing what should be done to achieve this reward, man continues his quest for knowledge and information to further his attempts to ‘chart his own course” if he can simply create the right technology to do it. Thus, Dr. Ronald Mallet, University of Connecticut professor, told the Boston Globe that his time machine can transport anything from an atom to a person by working on Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity. [It’s said that Einstein told several rabbis in New York City that he developed his formula for the atomic bomb via a rabbinical study of the Hebrew word for ‘light’ (ohr meaning divine light) in Gen 1:3 and maohr (meaning light that originates from divine light) in Gen 1:14]. But Prof. Mallet is not alone. According to CNN.com Australian university researchers in quantum optics say they have teleported a message in a laser beam using the same principles used in Star Trek. Using a process called “quantum entanglement” they teleported a radio signal contained in the laser beam of light from one place to another [traveling faster than the speed light]. While they are not ready to teleport “human matter”, the science world is ‘a buzz’ because the application is a breakthrough for the creation of completely unbreakable encryption codes for computer transactions and improved computer speeds in pinpointing and analyzing the trillions of atoms that make up a human being. Still stuck in the same “Tower of Babel” mentality, YHWH will once again use ‘the foolish’ to confound the ‘wise’ along with his so-called superior technology. Man shall be confounded, [through deception] by the same image he’ll create!
Psalms 64:8 “…O LORD, thou art our Father; we are the clay, and thou our Potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.” But does ‘man’ truly believe this is so? Dr. Vladimir Mironov of the Medical University of South Carolina and Thomas Boland of Clemson University have modified commonplace desktop printers to produce three-dimensional living tissue!! They have printed alternate layers of cell clumps and a super gel to build three-dimensional structures. The tissue printing work of Charleston and Clemson scientists, holds great promise for treating illness and growing organs for transplant, according to tissue engineers and other scientists across the country. The cells quickly grow in gel and adhere, then the gel can be washed away, leaving only living material behind. Johnson foresees diverse uses, such as fabrication of meat substitutes and development of foods.
Eccl 6:7 “All the labour of man is for his mouth, and yet the appetite is not filled”. [If we truly think about this verse, we will be faced with the admission that man does labor mostly for the appetites of the flesh]. Envisioned as ways to cure and even prevent disease by correcting ills at the gene and cell levels, tissue printing could lead to developing a beating heart in a laboratory, creating bio-artificial organs, according to Business 2.0 and The Charleston.Net News. Creating a pancreas [which restores lost function in diabetics] would be a
breakthrough, they say, since not enough pancreases are donated and the organ is difficult to transplant. Printing blood vessels would allow muscles to be grown and nourished outside the body, then transplanted. Bloodflow, which supplies nutrients and removes waste, demands three-dimensional living cells rather than two dimensional living cells that were grown in the past. Dr. Kelvin Brockbank, Senior Vice President of the Chicago-based Organ Recovery Systems and head of the company’s Charleston Research Center, says, “It’s definitely sound science”. He forecasts a bright economic future for the work in part because the National Institutes of Health is giving a big push to regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. He expects the federal government to take tissue printing to the next level of research, and then private companies to invest in potential products. Man has already heightened his wickedness to the ‘next level’, moving from [so-called] “co-creator” to attempts to “out-create the Creator’.
Romans 1:22-25 “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the
The Watchman – The United Congregation of Israel
incorruptible God [Elohim] into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen”.
THE “EVIL EYE” Prov 23:6-7 “Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee”. GOD [YHWH] exists!! With the words, "in the beginning God," we find the foundation of all existence. The Bible doesn't attempt to prove YHWH--- and He certainly does not have to prove it, but it declares HIS existence ..inspite of what we believe. Engineering, chemistry, information processing are labeled as “good for mankind”, but are running a rampant course right before our very eyes. It’s plain that the end result of scientific creations are often ‘created’ and utilized by those who are not using the “technology” --we’ve been allowed to know-- for the purpose of admiring his GREATNESS in creation. But they are used to out-run boundaries set by Him and out-live time controlled ONLY by Him… Scientists tell us that the delicate engineering of the eye's cornea and lens make the most advanced camera seem like a child's toy by comparison. The tiny rods and cones in the eye change light into electro-chemical impulses through processes the most sophisticated laboratory can't reproduce. And brain cells transform these electrical impulses into the miracle of perception---some--thing no high-tech computer can come close to doing. But, now [according to CNN.News], man has introduced the bionic eye!! It’s a miniature, hair-thin vision chip, just 2 millimeters across, containing 3,500 micro-photodiodes. It is implanted in the retina at the back of the eye – in six blind patients – and all claim they can see!! While this technology may actually benefit man …it’s not the technology that deserves the label of “evil” but the pur-pose in which the technology is used [THE EVIL BEHIND THE EYE] that labels man as having “the evil eye”. And in this case, it’s the technology behind the eye [chip implantations] that will be used in the near future to control man with the assistance of the master dictator, Satan. Isaiah 44:24 "Thus saith YHWH, thy Redeemer, and He that formed thee from the womb, I am YHWH that makes all things; THAT STRETCH-ETH FORTH THE HEAVENS ALONE; that spreadeth abroad the earth by Myself…" Driven by the desire to know-all, do-all, and see-all, since the “Days of Babel, [as so often pictured in the symbol of the all-seeing eye of Horus (Satan) that sits atop the pyramid], man attempts to probe the heavens even unto the third (3rd) heaven…should YHWH allow it. According to the BBC News, astronomy’s next “big thing” is the OWL [Over-Whelmingly Large] Telescope which has has drawn an international effort to make it happen. It‘s design includes a resolution 40 times greater and sensitivity several thousand times better than Hubble. Exceeding the performance of the Very Large Telescope (VTL) with technologies such as the Chandra X-Ray Telescope and the OWL, man forces his way beyond the boundaries in which he was given for habitation. Openly looking for another planet on which to live, [knowing that he has basically not kept his ‘first estate”, like Satan, having almost destroyed earth], he continues to intrude into YHWH’s heaven. Using the Chandra Observatory, NASA's new $1 billion X-ray telescope and technologies like the Chandra X-ray, man has detected a powerful black hole in our galaxy - and the dangerous star-eater is pulling Earth, the Sun and our entire Solar System toward it at more than 1 million miles per hour. Even if this is so, he fails to realize he cannot escape whatever course YHWH has destined for mankind to travel. Moreover, the secret things belong to YHWH. We will never discover those secrets, except He allows us to, no matter how large a telescope we design. But, instead of keeping YHWH laws that would preserve, not only man but the earth as well, man [through his own disobedience] needs another home. This is the same lesson Israel had to learn… being cast from our home, but the world has learned nothing from our sin. Deut 29:29 “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God [YHWH our Elohim]: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law”.

Gen 6:4 “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown”. Giants can easily be found in myths and legends, but they are also in historical and archeological records such as this actual impression of a giant footprint. In Creta-ceous limestone, not a plaster cast. it was chisled from a layer of limestone at the Cross Branch tributary of the Paluxy River, about three miles south of Glen Rose, Texas. More than just children's stories, giants appear to have been real people, living with close associations in real societies and even ruling ancient kingdoms. There is the giant of "Jack and the Beanstalk" [the fable] and but then there is the giant, Goliath, [biblical fact] who was only one of many giants the Bible speaks of. […And, owing to the "best seller in history” status of the Bible, Goliath is the most famous]. The human footprint above has been the source of controversy because humans were not supposed to have lived during the period of dinosaurs. [It damages the theories of Evolutionists who say it had to be carved [a fake], and not the evidence of an ancient human, because it is “too perfect.]” However, Dr. Carl Baugh, director of the Creation Evidence Museum in Glen Rose, had the stone cut across the heel and toes with a large diamond saw (see marks in the photo above), and proved that the stone, then mud, shows the strata inside the rock which actually curves with the impression. The footprint, made by a runner, is large (13 ”), but is not outside the range of modern man; [and is absolutely normal for one who may have never worn shoes]. The foot of basketball great Shaquille O’neal is slightly larger. O’neal wears a shoe size 23EEEE, whereas the man who made this ancient footprint would have only worn a 22EEE shoe. But many will tell you that this verse [Genesis 6:4, sons of God] actually refers to angels who left their first estate to choose wives from among mortal men, producing offspring…giants. Misunderstanding YHWH’s words, man has gone off on tangents, connecting this verse with this “fantastical fable” of demon copulation and even identifying giants as “alien visitors from other galaxies”. This suggestion of FALLEN angels presents a real problem because the scripture would NEVER refer to fallen angels as "sons of God". And certainly the text can't mean heavenly angels because they have not fallen and are always in perfect obedience to YHWH. They would never, therefore, perform such a wicked deed. Thus, the ONLY conclusion is that the text [Sons of God] refers simply to God's covenant people [the bloodline of Seth] intermarrying with pagan women from other tribes/nations. Intermarrying with other nations is something our people have done and still do to this day although commanded otherwise!] Deut 7:1-4 “When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and the Jebusites [African nations]…thou shalt make no covenant with them…Neither shalt thou make marriages with them…For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods…” The Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Brecksville, OH contains evidence of ‘earthly giants’ in the Serpent Mounds of Adams County. According to their Park News/Press Release of The National Park Service, U. S. Department of the Interior, “these effigies of Ohio’s prehistoric people may finally be giving up some of their secrets. Aided by technology, Brad Lepper, Curator of Archaeology for the Ohio Historical Society, has been on a quest to uncover the mounds secrets. Documented in the book, Red Earth, White Lies: Native Americans and the Myth of Scientific Fact by Vine Deloria, Jr. (Fulcrum Pub; ISBN: 1555913881; 1997) native Americans say ‘the mounds were there before them’. According to numerous old county and regional history books and records THROUGHOUT THE U.S., and in an 1883 article that appeared in the journal, Scientific American, the entire Ohio Valley was inhabited by men of unusual size. Joseph Henry, first secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, estimated that there were over 10,000 burial
The Watchman – The United Congregation of Israel
mounds [which is what the serpent mound is], but most were unfortunately destroyed by early pioneers. But the burial mound in Adams County, Ohio stretches across the meadow in the form of a serpent– [representations of one of TWO seeds (the wicked seed)] from which this nation/tribe came. Gen 4:1-2 “…Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep” [representing the Messiah and his Holy line] “but Cain was a tiller of the ground” [the wicked/natural man who, as Adam inherited the curse of toiling the ground as a penalty for his sin in the fall of mankind]. Large size is no evidence of demonic sexual encounters in producing children of gigantic size. The Watusi [African] tribe are modern-day giants, 7 to 8 ft tall. In fact, there are many giants in the Bible (other than Goliath) and history that cannot be explained with theories of angelic parenting. That notion originated from the influence of other sources such as “apostasy and paganism.” It’s true that "bene Elohim" (sons of God) refers to angels in various places in scripture: Job 1:6, 2:1; Psalm 29:1, 89:6, but the same phrase is also used to refer to believers, or those who are in God's Covenant line [The Holy people of YHWH: Deut 14:1, 32:5; Psalm 73:15; Hosea 1:10]. We must understand, it is clear in scripture that angels are SPIRITS (Heb 1:14). They have no physical bodies like humans, but can appear in the form of men. HOWEVER, the bible also so says angels neither marry nor are given in marriage – [Matt 22:30 (just as we aspire to be like them in the first resurrection], so who are we going to believe??!!. The Philistines [tribe of Goliath] appear to have been aware of the reputation of Israel's God [YHWH], since they referred to His victory in the Exodus over the Egyptians (1 Sam 6:6), and to the "gods" who had struck the Egyptians with the plagues (1Sam 4:8). Consistent with the time period of Egypt’s destruction, ancient historical records reflect great unrest amongst Egypt’s surrounding nations…including tribal migrations and collapsing economies. Egyptian [Hamitic or African], reliefs and writings as well as those Shemitic, have provided evidence that the early biblical Philistines appear to have migrated from Mesopotamia and later from the Aegean Sea. In Canaan, they were centered in and around Gerar, under a "king" and served pagan ‘gods’. Their names in Gen 26:26 (like Abimelek and Ahuzzath) appear to have been influenced by Shemitic culture into their African culture. Likewise, the Philistine’s paganism influenced Israel who also asked for a human king to be “like the nations”. [The "five lords of the Philistines" were among those nations that YHWH left to "test" Israel (Judg. 2:6-3:6). During the period 1150-1000 B.C., the Philistines were Israel's major adversaries. Shamgar was a judge who killed 600 of them with an oxgoad (Judg. 3:31)]. Their major conflict with Israel came against Samson (another judge of Israel). Despite Samson's less-than-exemplary character [a son of the holy seed falling for a daughter of men (Delilah of Hamitic descent)], YHWH used him for His own purposes against the Philistines, who were "ruling over" Israel at that time (Judg. 13:5; 14:4). Samson's two exploits (Judges 14:1-15:20 and 16:1-31), are each built around a cycle of offense and retaliation and climaxing with a mass destruction of Philistines. Despite their setbacks, they soon were engaged in oppressing Israel again. By the middle of the 11th century, we see them holding a decided military superiority over Israel that lasted for decades. Among other things, they maintained control of metalworking and weapons (1 Sam. 13:19-21). However, by the early 10th century B.C., the military and technological tide had shifted: the Philistines had been subdued, and blacksmiths from northern Palestine were producing carbonized iron (steel) while Philistine sites show no corresponding technological advances in historical records. Giants were first encountered when a party of spies was sent into Canaan to spy out the land (Num 13:28 & 33). David's first encounter with Giants was with Goliath, the Philistine champion, who challenged Israel to a one-on-one duel in the Elah valley west of Bethlehem (1 Sam 17) were he killed Goliath, and the Philistines were routed, retreating toward their cities of Gath and Ekron. David's fortunes rose in Israel as a result, and he had continuing success against the Philistines (1 Sam. 18:20-30; 19:8). They continued for many years as a threat, however. David twice fled to Philistine territory to escape Saul – (1 Sam 21:10-15; chaps. 27, 29). Saul died at the hands of the Philistines (1 Sam 31), and they desecrated his body: his head was cut off, his body exposed upon the wall of Beth-Shan, and his armor hung in the temple of the goddess Ashtoreth [Easter] - 1 Sam 31:8-10. David’s struggle continued against the Philistines even after he consolidated his power and took Jerusalem from the Jebusites. He defeated them in two separate encounters in the Rephaim valley, just west of Jerusalem and Bethlehem (2 Sam. 5:17-25). Likely later encounters, he succeeded in almost completely subjugating them, taking much of their territory (2 Sam. 8:1, 12). Later, he and his mighty men defeated them again -- along with four of their giants -- in several encounters (2 Sam. 21:15, 18-22).

2 Sam 21:19-22 “And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines…And there was a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant…And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea the brother of David slew him. These four were born to the giant in Gath…” In 1872, in The Historical Collections of Noble County Ohio, (pg 350-351), a mound was uncovered in which were found “the remains of three skeletons whose size would indicate they were AT LEAST eight (8) feet tall. But the remarkable feature was that the remains had double teeth in front as well as the back of the mouth in both upper and lower jaws”. Giants are a part of biblical history. Deut 3:11 “ For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof…” [approx 13 to 15 feet long].
NOTES FROM THE ELDER PRIEST YACHOV BEN ISRAEL
Eph 6:12 “…We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS in HIGH PLACES.”
From a spiritual perspective, the entire bible is one ‘GIANT’ historical story from, Gensis to Revelations, about a LIFE AND DEATH battle commonly known as The Great Controversy.
This is simply a battle for supremacy over YHWH’s Holy People! And to clinch a victory, the tactics Satan and his minions, [Fallen Angels] use, are by far, superior to any technology known to mankind. The scriptures tell us that angels are spirit-beings and rarely, if ever, manifest themselves in their true form, but upon appearing to humans usually appear in human form. Their ability to remain “unseen” is a great power over mortal men that has caused many to err, believing that Satan does not exist. Or, that once a person’s beliefs are rooted in the faith of the Messiah’s sacrifice, that Satan and his band can no longer attack us. False, indeed, is this perception. Satan uses many devices to snare mankind...false (gods) worship (Exo. 23:33, Psa 106:36); sinful agreements (Exo. 34:12); silver & gold (money/possessions - Deut 29:17); broken vows (Prov 20:25); scoffing/anger (Prov 29:8), and diverse lusts (1Tit 6:9).
But their most successful tactic lies in their ability to “deceive men through subtlety”. And once the deception has taken hold, fallen spirits will fortify their stronghold by temptation from other fallen spirits, thus holding that person in bondage to multiple “seducing and evil” spirits. Mary Magdalene had 7 devils before Yahshua cast them out!! Mark 16:9 “Now when Jesus [Yahshua] was risen early the first day of the week [Sunday], he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.”
Accusers of the brethren are not few!! They will pour false coloring on the words and acts of those who love truth because it is their motive to misrepresent believers to those who are inexperienced in the word. They will bring in insincere and unclean elements to cause confusion and chaos… remember Yahshua’s words, the wheat and the tares must grow up together. Satan prowls the earth night and day, seeking all whom he may devour. His purpose and his path are set. He will (by any means necessary) try to: Stop the promised redemption of YHWH’s holy people and all who cling to truth. Prevent humans from ever hearing or understanding the Good News Usurp the presence of the Holy Spirit within the body of true believers Neutralize, at all costs, the promised resurrection of the righteous dead. Utilize their confinement to earth [when they are finally and permanently cast out] to deceive as many as possible for as long as possible • And last but not least, attempt to usurp the complete authority of YHWH Elohim Most High as he (Satan) sits in the temple of Yah [in human form] and declares himself to be the god of all mankind and creation. • • • • •

make known, trying to understand things he did not intend for us to understand. It is the same reason that Lucifer lost his place in heaven. Dissatisfied because all was not revealed to him, nor was all given to him, he completely disregarded the position, beauty, wisdom, and power that was assigned to him. Those unwilling to accept ‘the plain truth’ are [at that very moment] operating in rebellion and walk in darkness. It’s the very place where fallen angels desire us to be, for then we become ‘consenting vessels’ to their wickedness. Walk not in darkness but come into His marvelous light! YHWH reigns supreme and the battle is won!!
