The war on Judeo-Christianity   Began in heaven.

Isaiah 14:12-19 (KJV) 12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. 16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; 17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? 18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. 19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.

Ezekiel 28:14-19 (KJV) 14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

Thus the war against God started in heaven when the anointed angel of God, that oversaw all God had created using his free will to rebel against God,  Taking 1/3 of the angles with him.  called fallen angels or demons,

Therefore, this war started before Judaism was founded and continues on earth. consider the following genealogies.

Our investigation must start with the understanding of the term dispensation.

The word DISPENSATION comes from the "Greek word [Oikonoma] and means administration. stewardship. Managing of a household or estate. Consider Luke 16:2-4; 1 Cor. 9:17; Ephes. 3:2: Col. 1:25

God never changes the way to Him, which is by grace through faith, in His promised seed of the woman, Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephes. 2: 8-9

The Scriptures only define Belief, Faith, and Love, by action not words, that mankind uses to deceive himself and others. 

God has given mankind different ways to demonstrate that faith in Him at different times.  These are times or different dispensations of God's grace. "That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:" Ephes. 1:10

Let us now look at the different times and ways (Dispensations) God gave to demonstrate faith in Him.  Note: Dates given are those used by Bible scholar Frank R Klassen and used in the Chronological Bible by Edward Reese when ? is shown are approximate.

Dispensations of the Grace of God. 

1. THE DISPENSATION OF Innocence Gen. 2:7-S to 3:24 Time 3976 - 3972 B.C. ? The origin of the human race when God made Adam and Eve and placed them in the garden of Eden. Gen. 1:26-28; 2:21-25 They were innocent: knowing only what God had said, and ignorant of evil having a moral nature and no tendency to sin.

RESPONSIBILITY = Opportunity to show faith in God.  To care for the garden, and accept God's sovereign authority as their creator by obeying God's command not to eat the fruit of the one forbidden tree. "And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die." Gen. 2:15-17 

We should notice the name of that tree "the knowledge of good and evil" Did they already have that knowledge? Notice the knowledge of good that they had. They were in a perfect environment. Adam had dominion over all God had made for him. Gen.1:26 To eat of every tree in the garden [but the one that was forbidden] They had a perfect relationship and fellowship with their God. A God given command for their protection from that deadly tree. Remember: the knowledge of evil was given them! "for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" Thus the tree was poisonous to them, and they knew it. The choice between Gods will, and their will, was theirs to make. 

FAILURE They ate of the forbidden tree, disregarding the authority and wisdom of God,. for that of their own,

Note: their attempt to lay the blame on someone else Gen. 3:9-13  Eve was deceived by Satan, Adam deliberately disobeyed, Choosing fellowship with his wife above that with God.

That sin of using the free will, to put God second in their lives, is the sin of pride, it is the sin nature often called the flesh, that is passed on to all his posterity. Consider: 2 Cor. 11:3 and 1 Tim. 2:4; Rom. 5: 14-19

JUDGEMENT The curse and death Gen 3: 7- 19  Expulsion from the garden and the presence of God. Gen. 3:20-24 

Notice the beginning of Jesus� credentials as the seed of promise Gen. 3: 15 

 

God's righteous judgment abounded by His grace, giving Adam and Eve and their descendents another chance to prove their trust in God as they await the coming saviour.

Speaking of God's grace: Consider His putting the knowledge of His warfare with Satan and the coming saviour in the sky in hieroglyphics [picture writing] for all to see.  Genesis 1:16-18 "And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. [17] And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, [18] And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. Psalm 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Psalm 19:1-6 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.[2] Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. [3] There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. [4] Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, [5] Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. [6] His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. Psalm 8:3-4 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; [4] What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?"

All of which is spoken of, it is the hieroglyphics [Picture writing] known by all the ancient civilizations, until it was perverted by Nimrod's wife Semiramis a priestess in their mystery Babylonian cult religion, to astrology.  

Consider the knowledge of this spoken of by Job, the oldest book in the Bible. Job 9:9-10 "Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. [10] Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.  Job 26:13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.  The greatest marvel of all was Job's declaration . . . Job 19:25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:" Praise God He is a faithful creator that put the gospel in the heavens for all to see and understand even before He made man. For there was no other preacher than God before Noah, Amen.   

Did you know a system for hieroglyphs in the skies known as constellations was exhumed among the remains of Assyrians and Chaldeans. The same things have been found among primitive peoples antedating the founding of Babel. Some of the same kind of forms and designs were found on tablets in cuneiform in writings before Moses time. Studies of ancient peoples understanding of constellations in their religious elements in old civilizations such as Iranian or Mithras, Aryans, Bactrians, Indians, Medes, Persians, Chaldeans, Hindoos, Chinese, Egyptian, Romans, and Greeks, long before Jewish and Christian writings. Investigators came to the same basic conclusion. That God preached His Gospel (Bible) in the stars, for all to understand and put their hope and faith in Him.

This was spoken of in  2 Kings 23:5 "And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven."

Consider the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:17-20 " For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. [18] For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; [19] Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. [20] For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Let us praise our faithful God [chapter 2]         

                                                   
The long life of the Patriarchs was the means of retaining the knowledge of God among men, creation,  Eden and the fall of man the working of Satan. Also a record of the promised seed of God that would defeat Satan and redeem man to his original place with God.

His promise of a redeemer to all the generations after the flood as they enter the next dispensation. As the waters of the flood cut off the direct line of Cain The sin nature acquired from Adam was passed on through Noah to all his descendants after the flood. Remember they took wives from the line of Cain amplifying the bent to sin, especially the lines of Ham and Japeth which fathered the heathen gentile nations. Nimrod had became the father of the cults and mystery religions, astrology, witchcraft, etc.

Think about the manifold wisdom and grace of God in preserving the history of creation and man, and his relationship with God. Both his fall and promised redemption, in and to man and in the sky.  You can learn more on this war in heaven between God and Satan in the book written by Joseph A Seiss called "The Gospel in the Stars"  

 

2. THE DISPENSATION OF CONSCIENCE Gen. 4 to 8:12  ? The history from Adam to Noah.  Time 3972 - 2318 B.C. ? 1656 yrs.

RESPONSIBILITY = Opportunity to show faith in God.   To do good and make blood sacrifice in remembrance of the cost of God's promised redemption. through the seed of the woman. Gen. 4:4 . Consider: John 1:29; Rev. 13:8

FAILURE Adam's first son Cain murdered his brother Abel. Gen 4:1-16 Man's progressive wickedness Gen. 6:5-6, 11-12 during this time two family lines emerged, continuing the war against God by Satan on earth.

1. The line of Cain Adam's 2nd son Gen. 4:1 is the line that chose to leave God and go their own way. From this line came  the first murder and one that built first city. A line that did not look to God or His promise.  It is from this line that the war with God continues.

Enoch Gen. 4:17 the eldest so of Cain  Built a city named after himself.
Irad Gen. 4:18 a descendent of Cain.
Mehujael Gen. 4:18 a descendent of Methusael                                                                                                                                                                        Lamech Gen. 4:18 -22 ---- first polygamist, had two wives  1. Adah had two sons  Jabal and Jubal.  2. Zillah had a son Tubal-cain, a daughter Naamah.  This line referred to as the Sons of men, 
 
2. The line of Seth Adam's 3rd son Gen 4:25  The line from which the seed of promise was to come, and be fulfilled, referred to as the son's of God. Gen. 6:1-2 and took them wives of the Sons of men,

Enos Gen. 4:26 -5:6-10  Then men began to call upon the name of the Lord. (prayer)  
Cainan Gen. 5:9 -14,  Luke 3:38  An ancestor of Christ   
Mahalaleel Gen. 5:12 - 17   
Jared Gen.. 5:15-20 An ancestor of Christ.    
Enoch Gen. 5:1 8-23 First person taken up alive to heaven.
Methuselah  Lived longer than any other man recorded Gen. 5:21-27 
                                                                                       Lamech Gen. 5:26-31 an ancestor of Christ  Luke 3:36 


Noah Gen. 5:28-32 Perfect in his generation during a time of moral darkness, and had 3 sons. Shem Ham  Japheth . They took wives from the line of Cain referred to as the "daughters of men" Gen. 6:1-7

JUDGEMENT  The universal flood. Gen. 6:7-13 destroying every living thing except Noah's family in the ark, and the creatures that God sent into the arch Gen. 6:17-22, to 8:12  Note: The ark of God built by Noah at God's command was a type of Christ, who saves all in Him from the judgment of God on sin.

Also note: Enoch was translated and all of the previous godly line of Seth had died leaving only Noah and his descendants. Noah�s family was in the ark before the judgment  which is a picture of God taking His church out before the Great Tribulation judgments on the inhabitants of this earth.

Let us regroup and get the picture, of the war between Satan and God on earth.

ADAM & EVE have passed their sin nature (Satan's seed) to all their; descendants.  Each having to make the choice between God's way or their own way, and receive the consequences' their choice brought.

The consequence of rejecting God was the flood. 2319 - 2318 BC

                 

The FLOOD cut off Cain's direct line but sins of fathers pass to  new generations    Ex.20:1-5, 34:7 cf 11 Chr. .22:3-4   So that after the flood the war continued between the one true living God in heaven, and Satan and his Anti-Christ on earth. It is a testing period to authenticate the true believers in the God of heaven.  It is seen in the buildup of nations, after the flood.

The line of Seth and his decedents followed God and had faith in Gods promised seed. Gen. 3:15,  Father of the Semitic division Gen, 5:32

It is interesting to note that Abraham's father TERAH was a n idol maker,  weather a compromising so called believer as today's "politically correct" for their acceptance and prosperity I do not know. One thing is sure it demonstrates God's grace in His choosing Abraham as the propagator of His seed of promise.  Abram / Abraham Father of the Hebrews / Israelites  Gen.11:26 - 12;1-3, 17:1- 19  ABRAHAM'S  Birth and call to the land given by God to him for the people, to call their own. Gen. 11:26,  12:1-9, 13:12-18.

Abraham had two sons, The first one by Hagar,(Sarah's Egyptian maid) had Ishmael.  He received a divine promise that he would beget twelve princes and become a great nation. Gen. 16:11-16, 17:18-26, 25:9-17, 28:9, 36:3,  Founder of the tribal family called Ishmaclites, sometimes referred to as Midianites.  Gen. 37:25-28  It is from this family that the great war with God continues on earth today.

It is from Noah's second son Ham and his third son Japheth. whose decedents would follow the sins of Cain, along with Cush from whom the pagan nations and the Antichrist would come.  Consider how the genealogies show the origins of nations came this way.    

Ham the father of the HAMITIC DIVISION Gen. 5;32, Gen. 10:6   2319 - 1967 BC

Father of CUSH  and his decedents amplified the sins of Cain  Consider NIMROD Founder of Babylonian Empire,  Babel-Erech-Accad & Calneh all the land  of Shinar (Iraq) including Nineveh in Asshur   (Assyria) Rehoboth - Calah -Ressen Babel-Erech-Accad &Calneh  All the land of Shinar (Iraq)including Nineveh in Asshur (Assyria) Rehoboth - Calah - Ressen Nimrod's motive for building the tower   2344 - 2188 BC      was to unify all men through religion, of which he was the head as a "priest king" becoming the "Father of cults." Nimrod's wife, Semmamis (or Semiramis) was a priestess. Considered herself to be the mother of God, as she proclaimed her son Tammuz, to be the promised God & saviour of their world. She became the mother of cults and the Mystery Babylonian Religion which is still alive under the guise of Roman Catholicism. (See "Babylon the Mystery Religion" by Ralph Woodrow       

CUSH   Father of  Babylonians,  Ethiopians,  Italians,  French,  Germans,  English

MIZRAIM  Father of Egyptians,  Philistines

PHUT  Father of Libyans,  Moors,  Africans

CANAAN  Father of Canaanites

ELAM  Father of Persians

ASSHUR  Father of Assyrians

LUD  Father of Lydians

ARAM  Father of Armenians

 

JAPHETH  is the father of the Japhetic Division Gen. 5:12, Gen. 10:2

GOMER  Father of Gauls,  Belts

MAGOG  Father of Turks,  Huns

MADAI  Father of Medes

JAVAN  Father of Greeks,  Spaniards,  Portuguese

TUBAL  Father of Tartans

MESHECH  Father of Russians

TIRAS  Father of Thracians

Now let us think back to Abrahams second son ISAAC, was born by Sarah ( Gen.17:19 ) as a miracle of God's grace.  Through which His promise of a coming seed of redemption, (Gen. 3:15)  would come It would also verify God's promise to Abram Gen. 12:1-4  Furthermore, the heritage of Isaac will demonstrate the promise of God to Abraham (Gen.17:1-19, 26:1-6)  

SHEM Father of Semitic family of human race                                 
ARAPHAXAD  Father of the Israelites.   

EBER (First Hebrew) 

It is of interest to note that the war with God is being carried out between the descendants of Ishmael and Isaac in the middle east today. Therefore, the war between God and the false God Satan and his Anti-Christ goes on today. Consider  John 2:22-26 (KJV) 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. 24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. 26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.

Also Consider  1 John 5:1-14 (KJV)  1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. 4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. 9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. 10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. 11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

That war will continue till Satan and his Anti-Christ attack Israel at Armageddon Rev.16:16, 19:11- 20:3 when they will be put into the pit of hell for 1000 years. After that, Christ and all that have followed Him will rule God's  perfect rule on earth for that 1000 years, without temptation, taking away all of mans excuses for his sin. 

Then Christ will have His final judgment of Satan and his followers, hell will be empted, and all sent to eternal damnation in the lake of fire. Rev. 20:7-15

The great war with Satan has ended in heaven and on earth forever.

Noiice it is Not by the UN or the USA that this war which focuses in the Midle East will end, but by Christ. Rev Chapter 20-22

As to Israel it is of interest to note, the land given Moses and Abraham is the same land reaffirmed by God to Israel in the 6 day war of 1971.  Consider then who is pressuring Israel to give up its God given land for "PEACE"

To see the world progress against the Judeo-Christian God and America see Islam is growing over Europe and America by looking at  Provocative Articles then Questions and Answers, then lookat link in April .

 In the light of that fact, consider that what God said at the dedication of the temple is applicable today. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) 14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways then  will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.   God is waiting for us to repent our not turning from our sins, and leting Him live His way in our lives,  Then we can ask God bless America, not before.

Now go do what is right in the eyes of the Lord and may your decisions bring you the promise Romans 8:28 " And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
Your friend in Christ Warren T. Smith
