TRUTHS THAT ARE HURTING CHRISTIANS
am witnessing today so many people with probably good intentions
speaking and writing, in blogs and social web pages, half truths that
it has really come to a place where God is telling me to speak up. I will deal with
in the next paragraphs, one of these which might be the worst half truth of all.
worry God is in control”.
This half truth is doing so much damage to the body of Christ and
helping Satan’s plans for this world. This statement allows people to
stay in denial, lay their weapons down and not take the actions needed
in their live’s and in lives of others around them and in the world
believe in the sovereignty of God,
He is Creator of all, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient and the
authority over all living, spiritual and the physical realm. So when
the Bible says that Satan is the "god of this world," it is not saying
that he, Satan, has ultimate authority. It is conveying the idea that
Satan rules over the unbelieving world in a specific way. In the case
of 2 Corinthians 4:4, the unbeliever follows Satan’s agenda. This
is not to say that he, Satan, has complete authority of the world; only
God has this authority. But it does mean that God has allowed Satan to
operate in this world, within certain limits which God has set for him
and has allowed Satan to operate with wiles (purpose) that Satan has

the control of our world to man in the Garden of Eden and Satan robbed
it from man and added it to the authority he already had and God will
not interfere with man’s free will and take the authority back. Satan
even had the audacity to offer the control to Jesus in the wilderness.
People think because of Calvary
that Satan was annihilated and his authority was completely taken away.
All the verses below will prove that Satan is the ruler of this world
and this present age, and only the Bride, the Chosen and the Elect has
the authority in Jesus’ Name and the protection that Calvary offers.
The Christian who is in disobedience to God and the people who not
Christians, who are worldly, are all under the authority of Satan.
(God’s definition of a believer) are no longer under the rule of Satan (Colossians 1:13).Unbelievers,
on the other hand, are caught "in the snare of the devil" (2 Timothy
2:26), lie in the "power of the evil one" (1 John 5:19), and are in
bondage to Satan (Ephesians 2:2).
God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill
the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over
the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the
