Genesis 13:14-18 True Separation

"And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee. Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD."

Finally!!! We have Abram where G-d intended him to be, by himself. If you remember, back in Genesis 12:1, G-d told Abram to get out of his country, away from his family unto a land he would show him. However, Abram has done everything else but what G-d wanted him to do. Now we see Abram maturing to the point where he is ready to begin the next step in his relationship with G-d.

This is great example of how we respond to G-d. Instead of being where G-d wants you and me to be, we run the opposite direction. G-d wants us to be separated from the world and reliant on G-d alone. We need to ask ourselves on a daily basis, are we where G-d wants us to be?

Here we also have G-d, not only promising the land to Abram, but also to make Abram's seed more numerous than the dust of the earth. At first thought, you would think that Israel and all the Jews were his legacy. However, all the Jews from the beginning of time could not fulfill what G-d intends here. Fulfillment also includes the body of Christ. Also, Israel has never occupied the land is now showing Abram here.

In the future, we will see the Jews inhabit the land he is showing Abram. However, we will also see the complete seed of Abram, the Body of Christ, inhabit the new earth and the new Jerusalem.

Genesis 13:5-13 A Sign of Faith

And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together. And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram's cattle and the herdmen of Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land.

Even though both Abram and Lot lived a short time outside of G-ds will, they were children of G-d and were rewarded with riches. However, as we discussed back in Genesis 12, Abram was called out of Ur not his family. At that time, Abram lacked the faith to leave without his family. Now, we are seeing circumstances in Abram's life move him further in that direction. G-d wanted Abram to rely on G-d alone in order to build the faith that will build a nation.

And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.

We see a major leap of faith. Abram is not only willing to separate himself from the world, but also the rest of his family. Knowing that G-d will provide no matter what, Abram allows Lot to choose the best of the land for himself. However, as we will see, Lot is about to learn the grass isn't always greener on the other side lesson.

And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar. Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.

Lot must have been foaming at the mouth. He thought he was getting the best of both worlds. Notice he references the garden and Egypt. This shows Lot true nature and the way G-d feels about those who try to live with one foot with G-d and one foot in the world.

Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom. But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

I find it interesting that Abram ends up in a land whose name means to humble and subjegate oneself while worldly Lot ends up in a land whose name means scorched. To me, this shows that G-ds Word is always teaching us lessons on how he wants us to live our lives.

Genesis 13:1-4 Get Back...Get Back...Get Back To Where You Once Belong

"And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south. And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. And he went on his journeys from the south even to Bethel, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Hai; Unto the place of the altar, which he had make there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD."

Here we have Abram, Sarai and Lot returning from Eqypt, through the Negev, back to where they belong, Beth-El. Symbolically, we can say that they are returning from being in the world back to G-d and sometimes, it requires traveling through the Negev, the wilderness.

G-d knew that Abram would be faithful and return to him. Therefore, he rewarded him with great riches. G-d does the same with us. There will be times that we will run or play in the world but he knows which of his children will return. Those children will be rewarded with great riches...sometimes material...all the time spiritual.

As a side note, I find it interesting the words in which the Spirit uses. In verse one, instead of saying Abram, Sarai and Lot, he uses Abram, his wife, and Lot. A closer look at the Hebrew word, "ish-shaw', naw-sheem'", which is translated as wife reveals a message. "Ish-shaw', naw-sheem'", can also be translated as adulteress.

This shows that G-d didn't just wink at Abram transgression in Egypt but also holds Sarai accountable for adultery with Pharoah. The Haggadah and other secular sources reveal that this Pharoah was Ashwerosh or Auserra Apopi.

Whenever we play in the world, we are committing adultery. Anytime we put worldly things above G-d, he commit spiritual adultery. However, just as G-d forgave Abram and Sarai, we will forgive us of Spiritual adultery if we turn away from the world and turn to Beth-El, the House of G-d.

Genesis 12: 11-20 Why Did Abram Lie? Did He Lack Faith?

And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou [art] a fair woman to look upon: Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This [is] his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive. Say, I pray thee, thou [art] my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee. And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she [was] very fair.The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

In the past few verses, we see G-d speak to Abram, call him out of his ancestrial home, gave him a promise of a new life, land, and blessing and then show him the actual land. We then see Abram head to Egypt at the first sign of trouble.

Now we have Abram talking his beautiful wife into lying for him in case someone wanted to kill him for her.

Before we go any further, Egypt is seen as symbolic for the world. This, along with the past couple of verses, should peak our interest. So far, we have G-d revealing himself to Abram, calling him to be sanctified, separated from the world. We see G-d giving the promise and at the sign of trouble, he heads where? The world not G-d.

That is so typical of us humans. G-d proves himself everyday as long as we open our eyes. He is there. Why is it that in times of despondency, we turn our backs on the only one who can help us. It's a lack of faith. I sorry if that sounds harsh, but it's the truth.

We say we believe but head for the nearest tree at the first sign of rain. We need to continually rely on the promises of G-d. Was Abram faithless? No. He lacked the faith to get him through. As we will see, that will change.

I have a disagreement with a lot of people concerning faith. When we come to G-d through the Messiah, we gain the gift of the indwelling of G-d's Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit, we have the ability to be perfect b'nai Elohim. However, we lack the faith. We see the same here with Abram. He and Sarai rather run to the world instead of relying on the promises of G-d. He was an immature believer. Unfortunately, we all go through those growing pains. Even more unfortunately, some of us never grow out of it.

And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife. And Pharaoh called Abram, and said, What [is] this [that] thou hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she [was] thy wife? Why saidst thou, She [is] my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take [her], and go thy way. And Pharaoh commanded [his] men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

This blows me away. However, it does answer the questions many people have concerning others who call themselves Christian and appear to be evil. At first, Abram lied and now he's benefitting from it. Doesn't that seem so wrong? So evil? Secondly, It is such a bad testimony which will turn people away from G-d.

As in so many cases throughout our lives, we have to step back and separate the person from the actions. This is no different. Abram lacked enough faith to rely on G-d's promises but enough faith to believe and act intially on it.

Again, we are the same way. As we will see, Abram will grow in faith. That's what we have to do. G-d's is pleased when you believe in him and act upon it. However, it is necessary to grow continually. If we don't and we continually live in and rely on the world, we may still call him Lord, but don't be surprised if the Lord says, "Depart from me, I never knew you."

This would be such a tragedy because it's so easy....if we only rely on G-d and his promises.

Genesis 12:9-10 Abrams First Mistake and Ours?

And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south. And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine [was] grievous in the land.

G-d told Abram that he was going to make him a great nation, a great people, a blessing to all the earth. However, at the site of a little trouble, he hightails it out of the country. What's up with that? Did Abram think that G-d was messing with him, only to lead him to a place in order to die.

Why is it that everytime we have problems in our life, we attempt to run away? Didn't Abram believe G-d? Don't we believe G-d? Didn't G-d promise to take care of Abram? Aren't those same promises ours to claim?

Then why do we also turn our backs on G-d and attempt to remedy the problems in our lives ourselves. Do we not think G-d is capable?

Unfortunately, it's human nature. However, we need to rely on G-ds nature, not our own. But, most of the time, we don't. And when we don't and we fall flat on our faces, the most important thing to do turn to G-d in these troubled times in order that our faith in him is increased.

Abram does exactly that but not before he gets himself in trouble and leaves us a bad example to follow. That, my friends, is for the next entry. I leave you with something Y'shua told us in Matthew 6:26.

"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?"

G-d takes care of us, even if you don't believe it. It's all about faith. Believe it.

Genesis 12:7-8 Keeping Your Eye On The Big Picture.

And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

Abram has been traveling and it had to be pretty difficult up to now. However, as G-d does with us, Abram is stop and reminded of the promise. Abram responds like one with true faith. Abram builds an altar to G-d. We need to continually keep the altar of G-d first and foremost in our minds. The altar of G-d has been and always will be the way that reminds and leads us to G-d's side. The altar of G-d is the cross on which Y'shua was sacrificed for our sins.

As we journey with Abram and through our own lives, keep your eye on the cross, the altar of G-d.

And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.

Abram was reminded of the promise of the land. However, Y'shua tells us that not only did Abram see this promise but he saw the big picture of the promise, the coming of salvation through the Messiah and rejoiced in it.

Abraham, your father, was glad that he might see my day; and he saw, and did rejoice. John 8:56

We see an alusion to exactly that here. The first altar represents the first part of the promise, the promise of the land, being a great nation and a great people. The second altar refers to the second part of the promise, the promise of the whole earth will be blessed through Abraham by way of the Bethel, which means "House of G-d."

I find it very interesting that Bethel was assigned to the Benjamites(which is representative of Israel), but they did not possess it, and we find it taken by the children of Joseph(which is representative of the Messiah and those who follow him, the church).

Please, don't take this as the promise passing from Israel to the church. That is not supported by the Bible. However, you can take it as the church as the fulfillment of that promise.

Presently, the House of G-d is still calling out to the House of Israel and the House of the Gentiles. This is my calling. I feel that G-d is using me to reach out to the Jew and Gentiles. G-d desires for the the two houses to become one within the House of G-d under the leadership of the Messiah.

If you belong to a synagogue or church that does not actively reach out to both, then it's time for a serious self re-evaluation.

Genesis 12:4-6 ...And So Our Journey Begins.

So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.

As G-d commanded, Abram leaves his old life behind in order to start a new life. Two lessons we learn from here:

1. You are never too old to be called out to do G-d's work. Abram was 75 years old. Most of us want to sit back and enjoy the rest of our lives. Never rest until we go home.

2. Haran is the Hebrew word, "Charan", which means parched. If you are being called out by G-d, no matter where you are, no matter what you are doing or who you think you are, you are living in a parched or barren place. G-d wants you begin your journey from that parched place to come to the living water where you will never thirst again.

And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

Canaan is the Hebrew word Kenaw, which means "humiliation or to make humble". At first thought, you have to ask, "Why would G-d call Abram out of a parched or barren place and lead him first into a land which means, "humiliation or to make humble"? Sometimes, G-d has to break down the old person you are in order to recreate the new person sanctified and usable by G-d. This is the case, as we will see, with Abram.

And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

I love G-d's Word. Here, on the way from a barren life to the first lesson in a sanctified life, Abram passes through Sichem and Moreh which means "shoulder the burden" and "teaching". Isn't that the way G-d is? Even though Abram will shoulder the burden of this new life, G-d will teach him how to survive it.

That's the way you and I go through life. G-d tells us that it is not going to be easy to make it to the promise land but he will be there to help us shoulder the burden and continually teach us the way to get through the humbling times of humiliation.

Genesis 12:1-3 The Promise of Peace: The Calling of Abraham

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Here we have the calling of Abram, who is later renamed, by G-d, as Abraham, the father of the Judaic line. His wife is Sarai, who is also renamed as Sarah. I find it very interesting that G-d adds the Hebrew letter “hey” to their names. The letter “Hey” is symbolic of the breath of G-d. By the breath of G-d comes his Word which is the Messiah Y’shua and the father of the Messianic line is Abram or Abraham.

Also, anytime G-d calls anyone into service, he calls them to be sanctified, or separated from worldly influences. This is no different from you and me. Here he is telling Abram to get away from everything and come to G-d. Notice that it’s not a request. He is commanding Abram to come forth. If it was a request then he would have phrased it as an “If …Then” comment. If you come forth then I’ll will bless thee. No. He is telling Abram to come forth and he WILL bless him. The reason is that G-d has had a salvation plan for you and me from the beginning and now is going to continue through this man, Abram.

Notice that it is a command followed by a unconditional promise. It doesn’t matter what Abram does from here on out, G-d is going to follow through with his promise. Praise G-d. Aren’t you glad that G-d is that way. Once you place your faith and separated yourself from the world, G-d has promised you eternal life with him and there’s nothing you can do to separate yourself from G-d….unless you make a conscience decision to leave him. Abram is no different. As we will see, Abram will put his faith in G-d and will fall flat on his face many times before the end of his life. However, G-d will always be faithful and follow through with his promises.

In these verses, G-d promises to show him a land that he will give to Abram and his descendants and make it a great nation. This nation is what we know today as Israel. I love the part that G-d will bless the nation of Israel and make it a blessing to the whole world. This blessing came to us through the Messiah Y’shua which came out of Israel. It is amazing to sit back and look at how G-d’s plan has played out and continues to play out according to the scriptures. I do believe we are in for some exciting times ahead as G-d’s salvation plan comes to a head. I firmly believe and expected that we will see the coming of our Lord and Savior in his triumph return for his people within our lifetime.

Finally, notice in verse three that G-d will also bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel. To see this, all you have to do is look back on the past seventy years and see the supernatural protection of the nation of Israel. You might say that they don’t believe in the Messiah, Y’shua. That is true right now. However, as the scriptures tell us, they will come to recognize the Messiah in the end times and remember that this is an unconditional promise. It doesn’t matter what Israel does, G-d fulfills his promises not for Israel and anyone else but for his glory and name sake.

We, as the people of this world, must treat Israel with respect and friendship because they are blessed by G-d. Right now, there is a movement within the United States leadership to slowly distance themselves from Israel. This is a major mistake. I firmly believe that will lead to our downfall as a great nation. The United States, Great Britain, Canada, etc. have been blessed because they started are Christian nations and have supported the nation of Israel. Turning our backs on Israel will lead to judgement.

Today, I leave you with Psalm 122.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee. Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good. “

We should daily pray for peace in Jerusalem, Israel. If we do, we will prosper and we will see the coming of the Lord. For true peace will come only when Israel recognizes the true Messhiach which happens, according to the scriptures, just before G-d comes for his people.

Come Lord Y’shua Come.

Genesis 11:10-32: The Path To Our Savior?

These are the generations of Shem: Shem was a hundred years old, and begot Arphaxad two years after the flood: And Shem lived after he begot Arphaxad five hundred years, and begot sons and daughters. And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begot Salah: And Arphaxad lived after he begot Salah four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters. And Salah lived thirty years, and begot Eber: And Salah lived after he begot Eber four hundred and three years, and begot sons and daughters. And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begot Peleg: And Eber lived after he begot Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters. And Peleg lived thirty years, and begot Reu: And Peleg lived after he begot Reu two hundred and nine years, and begot sons and daughters. And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begot Serug: And Reu lived after he begot Serug two hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters. And Serug lived thirty years, and begot Nahor: And Serug lived after he begot Nahor two hundred years, and begot sons and daughters. And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begot Terah: And Nahor lived after he begot Terah a hundred and nineteen years, and begot sons and daughters. And Terah lived seventy years, and begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begot Lot. And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah. But Sarai was barren; she had no child. And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there. And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.

Here we have what appears to be another simple genealogy. However, as we have learned, nothing appears in the Scriptures without a reason. This section starts out as “The Generation of the Name” Shem means “the name”. In the Bible, there is only one name that is above all names and that is Y’shua.

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father. Philippians 2:9-11

If we take a look at the meanings of the names mentioned here, we find a prophecy pointing to our salvation.

Shem means "the name"
Arphaxad means "the healer and forgiver"
Salah means "will rise up"
Eber means "one that will allot to himself the anger"
Peleg means "bear it for the sect."
Reu means "friend and shepherd."
Serug means "this line"
Nahor means "become weak or die"
Terah means "as dirt(man)"
Abram means "the exalted father"
Nahor means "become weak or die"
Haran means "on the mountain"
Sarai means "the daughter or son (child) of the king"
Milcah means "the wife of the king"

Put into sentence form, it reads:

"The name of the healer and forgiver will rise up. One that will allot to himself the anger and bear it for the sect. The friend and shepherd from this line will become weak as dirt(man). The exalted father will become weak on the mountain for child of the king, for the wife of the king."

Here we have a prophesy that states that a healer and forgiver will rise up. One that will take on himself the anger or punishment from G-d for a group of people that holds to a certain belief. This forgiver will be their friend and shepherd and come from this line or genealogy. He will become weak or die as a man. (Another name for dirt is the Hebrew name, Adam, which means “man”). It also says that G-d will die on the mountain for his daughter or child (Church) and his wife(Israel).

In this prophesy, we find that the Messiah will be a man and G-d. This has to be confusing to some. However, we find that the Y'shua ha Meshiach was and is exacting that 100% man indwelled by 100% G-d for the sole purpose of supplying a perfect sacrifice required for our sins.

One must ask, “Is this prophesy just coincidence or strategically place by G-d for those of us that earnestly seek our order to point to the one who will save us?”

The answer is between you and G-d. Let his Spirit guide you.

Genesis 11:3-9 Tower of Babel

“And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top [may reach] unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people [is] one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.”

Most people, even some Christians, when confronted with the story of Babel, just smile and say it's just a fable. However, as a literalist, I firmly believe that the account is true. I also believe that before it's over, G-d will have the last word.

Also, there many external accounts of the tower of Babel such as the Jewish Historian Josephus, Alexander the Great and the Greek historian Herodotus. Most critics will say that the Herodotus and Alexander accounts are of a “square tower not the biblical round tower”.

This is a great example of where their bias' lay. Take another look at the actual biblical account above. There is no reference to the actual shape or size of the Tower of Babel. Therefore, our sunday school vision of a round tower is most likely incorrect. However, only time will tell.

As for the story of the Tower of Babel, it began with the first dictator, Nimrod, the grandson of Ham, the son of Noah, who excited mankind to confront and show contempt of God. Josephus tells us that Nimrod was a tyrant bent on “turning men from the fear of God” and getting them under his rule. Josephus also tells us that “...the multitude were very ready to follow the determination of Nimrod and to esteem it a piece of cowardice to submit to God”.

The Mishnah tells us that the Nimrod and those under his sphere of influence was jealous of G-d and his position in the “upper world”.

"God has no right to choose the upper world for Himself, and to leave the lower world to us; therefore we will build us a tower, with an idol on the top holding a sword, so that it may appear as if it intended to war with God" (Gen. R. xxxviii. 7; Tan., ed. Buber, Noah, xxvii. et seq.).

When God saw what they were doing he remembered his promise not to destroy by water. From a new testament perspective, we now know that G-d also was reserving fire for the final punishment. Therefore, he confused their language. That is why it is called the Tower of Babel.

As a side note, here are some interesting facts about the Tower of Babel.

1.Josephus said that the tower was wider than it was high, more like a mountain than a tower.

2.Professor J.E. Gordon, in his book, “Structures or why things don't fall down”, wrote, 'brick and stone weigh about 120 lb per cubic foot (2,000 kg per cubic metre) and the crushing strength of these materials is generally rather better than 6,000 lbf per square inch or 40 megapascals. Elementary arithmetic shows that a tower with parallel walls could have been built to a height of 2.1 km (1.3 mi) before the bricks at the bottom were crushed. However by making the walls taper towards the top they ... could well have been built to a height where the men of Shinnar would run short of oxygen and had difficulty in breathing before the brick walls crushed beneath their own dead weight."

3.The Book of Jubilees mentions the tower's height as being 5,433 cubits and 2 palms, or 2,484 m (8,149.606 ft).

Finally, with all things considered, the Tower of Babel, was most likely in the shape of a pyramid, similar to other large structures at that time, making it more than feasible. It should be noted that this is Babylon which has been the center of demonic and Satanic activity since day one. It will also be the center of Satan's short term earthly rule during the Great Tribulation. Once again and Praise G-d, G-d will have the final word on the subject.
