have now come to the subject of what the Apostle Paul referred to as
confusion exists with regards to the judgment of God. Many believers in
Jesus Christ simply do not
understand that the Bible does not teach one final judgment where all who
ever lived, saved and unsaved alike, will stand together before Him in
Bible clearly teaches that there is a series of no less than seven judgments
of God. Each individual judgment differs in respect to its time and its purpose.
It is unwise to fall into the religious trap of believing there is only one
judgment which will occur at one time for all people.
keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart
discerneth both time and judgment." (Ecclesiastes 8:5)
wise man and woman of God will not allow themselves to fall into the trap of
believing that there is one judgment for all people occurring at the end of
all time. A wise man and woman will go to the Word of God, bypassing
religion and the traditions of man, in order to see for themselves what the
written Word of God has to say about the multiple judgments of God and the timing of

on to perfection, or maturity, in Christ when one lacks knowledge of the
judgments of God.

of God in order to be motivated to live Godly lives, knowing there is such a

Him with sin. God is good but He can be severe, for our benefit, as
therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity;
but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in His goodness: otherwise thou
also shall be cut off." (Romans 11:22)
of the extremely unfortunate popularity of this horribly misinformed
Singaporean Preacher, sin still has its severe consequences.
New Testament Doctrine of Eternal
Judgment calls our attention to this unchanging Bible fact.
this lesson we will briefly cover the first five of the seven primary
Doctrines of Eternal Judgment.
Parts 2 and 3 of this study, we will cover in greater depth the Bema
Judgment Seat of Christ and the Great White Throne Judgment,
The Judgment of the Believer's Sins at Calvary
Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many..." (Hebrews 9:28)
Jesus Christ went to the Cross, He bore God's judgment for the sin of all humanity.
that moment in time, Holy God reached out to every generation of man - past,
present and future, gathering together every sin ever committed as a result
of Adam and Eve's original sin in the
Garden. God then allowed His Son, Jesus Christ, to bear His judgment
for each and every one of those sins.
sin ever committed, presently being committed or which will ever be
committed were hurled upon Jesus as He became a Sin Offering for humanity.
He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him
stricken, smitten of God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our
transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our
peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep
have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath
laid on Him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:4-6)
could be clearer? Speaking by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the
Prophet Isaiah, hundreds of years before Christ was judged for the sin of
humanity, prophesied that God would lay upon Him the iniquity of us all.
This would be the judgment for the sins of the world.
Christ Himself, just prior to going to the Cross, referred to His coming
passion as God's judgment upon the whole world.
is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast
out. And I, if I be lifted up from the
earth, will draw all men unto Me.
This He said, signifying what death He should die." (John
death Jesus was signifying He would die was the judgment of God for the sin
of the world.
this does not mean that everyone in the world is automatically
forgiven. Every individual must decide for themselves whether they
will believe and receive Christ's substitutionary judgment as their
must believe what Christ has done in order to receive the benefits of what
Christ has done.
God so loved the world, that He
only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish, but have everlasting life. For
God sent not His
Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him
might be saved. He
that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is
condemned already, because he hath not believed in the Name of the only
begotten Son of God." (John 3:16-18)
Jesus' emphasis on the importance of each and every individual believing for
themselves that He did indeed die as their Substitute in judgment. Jesus
specifically said, "Whosoever believeth in Him should not
are smart enough to do so, not only become right with God, but become a brand-new
creation in Christ.
actually become the very righteousness of God.
if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new ... For He hath made Him to be sin for us,
who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him."
(2 Corinthians 5:17,21)
forgiveness and His saving us have nothing to do with good works we have
done or our own self-righteousness. God forgiveness and His saving us,
by allowing Christ to be judged for us, have only to do with His
incomprehensibly great mercy.
by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He
saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;"
Jesus Christ went to the Cross, He bore God's judgment for the sin of all
humanity. All who accept God's mercy in Christ are spared the penalty and
the punishment of their sin.
The Believer's Daily Self-Judgment
saved and justified by faith in Christ's work at Calvary, Christians still
find themselves daily at war with sin and might not always win every battle.
There will be times when even the strongest believer in Jesus Christ can
stumble and fall.
Christian lifestyle is one of continually saying "No" to sin and
"Yes" to obedience to God's Word. This is why the Apostle John
admonishes believers to fight back and resist the pull of the world.
not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the
world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is
not of the Father, but is of the world." (1 John 2:15-16)
the Apostle John calls all believers to say "No" to sin. However,
it is a simple, realistic fact of life that although we are to constantly
strive for perfection, we are not always going to hit the bulls-eye.
Sometimes we are going to miss the mark of holy
living. When we do, we must judge ourselves as having sinned and seek
is what I refer to as the Believer's Daily Self-Judgment.
Are Consequences for Denying Self-Judgment
tremendous excesses had developed in the Church at Corinth, Paul sternly
was a problem with sexual sin in the Corinthian Church. There was a
problem with pride and competition amongst believers. There was also a
problem with selfishness and drunkenness manifesting itself at the Communion
table. Sadly, this sounds like many
modern Churches today.
problems had been occurring for some time and Paul warned them that refusing
to judge themselves in these areas was causing the judgment of God to come
upon them through the Laws of Sowing and
warned the Corinthians that the reason many of them were sick, and others
had even died, was because they were refusing to judge themselves daily when
it came to personal sin.
to what Paul had to say about the severe consequences for denying
he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation
himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For
this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep (have died). For if we
would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are
judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with
the world." (1Corinthians 11:29-32)
Corinthians were being controlled by carnality. They had failed to judge sin
as sin and repent. Therefore, they were suffering the consequences of their
His great love, and in order to bring them back on track, Holy
God was allowing the Corinthian Church to be judged through the Laws of
Sowing and Reaping. This was not to punish
them, but rather, it was to bring them back into fellowship with
in verse 31, Paul stated when we judge ourselves we can avoid the judgment
of God. This is a reference to the believer's daily self-judgment. When a
believer in the Lord Jesus Christ falls into sin, by judging themselves as
having fallen into sin and confessing that sin to the Father, they can avoid
the judgment of God and actually be cleansed of all unrighteousness.
we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to
cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)
something wonderful here that speaks of God's incomprehensible goodness and mercy.
Apostle said if we will do one thing when we sin, God will do four things in
one simple thing we must do is to confess, or repent.
That is called
four things God will do in response to our self-judgment is He will be
faithful to us, He will be just towards us, He will forgive us and He will
absolutely cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
is called mercy.
to what the Singaporean Hyper-Grace
Teacher insists, when we sin we are not "automatically forgiven"
without self-judgment, or repentance. You will not find that deceptively
dangerous doctrine in the Bible.
But what is found in the Bible is the fact
that when we judge ourselves and confess our sins, God is faithful and just
to forgive us and to cleanse us.
the power of the believer's daily self-judgment.
in mind, those who refuse to judge themselves and repent, whether through
stubborn human pride or by foolishly believing the Singaporean Hyper-Grace
Teacher's lie that self-judgment is not necessary, will indeed face the
chastisement and judgment of Holy God.
whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth [judges], and scourgeth every son whom He
receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for
what son is he whom the Father chasteneth not? But if ye be without
chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not
sons." (Hebrews 12:6-8)
if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do
mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live." (Romans 8:13)
when we do one thing and judge ourselves daily concerning sin, God will do
four things in response.

Gentiles who come out of the Tribulation Period will be either specially
rewarded or judged based upon their efforts in befriending Christ's Jewish
brothers and sisters during the horrors of the Tribulation Period.

of the Living Gentile Nations, Christ will be looking for those who helped
or hindered His brethren during that time.
Christ is the King of both the Jews and of the World. At the time of
the Judgment of the Living Gentile Nations, He will sit upon His Throne in
judgment over every Gentile who survived the Tribulation Period. The
basis for that judgment will be as follows.

seven-year period of time is also known as
"the time of Jacob's [Israel] trouble."
For that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of
Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it." (Jeremiah 30:7)
The Judgment of Living Israel
next judgment we will briefly mention is the Judgment of Living
Israel has come under many cycles of judgment over her 3,000 year rebellious
history of unbelief. However, there is still one final judgment which
will come upon Israel.
Christ's Body is removed from the Earth at what is commonly referred to as
the "Rapture" of the Church, the seven-year Period of Tribulation
Prophet Jeremiah referred to the seven-year Tribulation as "the time of
is a reference to Israel.
Tribulation Period is a time of final judgment for Israel. Let's look
at it again.
"Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of
Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of
Hosts, that I will
break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers
shall no more serve themselves of him: But
they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise
up unto them.
"Therefore fear thou not, O my
servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I
will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and
Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall
make him afraid. For I am with thee, saith
the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I
have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will
correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished."
the seven-year Tribulation Period of "Jacob's trouble" includes
four primary events.
Israel's actual seven-year period of Tribulation judgment through suffering.
The visible return of Jesus Christ at the end of "Jacob's
trouble." (Matthew 24:27-30)
The re-gathering of believing and unbelieving Israelites who survived the
seven-year period of
trouble." (Matthew 24:31; Ezekiel 20:34-35)
The final Judgment of the Nation of Israel. (Matthew 25:1-30; Ezekiel

horrific oppression of the anti-Christ they have ever

Bible says at that time they will turn to Jesus as their Messiah and all of
living Israel will be saved.
so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion
the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob." (Romans
have used this verse to teach that ultimately all of Israel shall be saved
whether they accept Christ as their Messiah or not. However, that is
not what the Apostle Paul is saying here.
is saying in the day Christ appears in Zion as their Deliverer, at the end
of "Jacob's trouble," all of living Israel who see Him will accept
Him and shall be saved.
Fountain of Blood Opens to the House of David
"In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to
the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness." (Zechariah 13:1)
Zechariah prophesies that Jesus, the Fountain
of Blood which was opened for the sins of the world, will finally be
accepted by the Nation of Israel.
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that his
[anti-Christ] burden shall be taken away
from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be
destroyed because of the [Christ's] anointing." (Isaiah 10:27)
a glorious day Israel's finally accepting Christ as their Messiah will be for all the people of
the world, both Jews and Gentiles!
the unbelief and rebellion of Israel resulted in the reconciling of the
Gentile world to God through Jesus, what rejoicing and blessing will come upon the
entire world as a result of Israel's ultimate faith and obedience.
"For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall
the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?" (Romans 11:15)
The Judgment of Satan, Formerly Lucifer, & Fallen Angels
Bible does not provide us with every detail of Almighty God's coming judgment
on Satan, fallen angels and demons. However, there is enough evidence in
Scripture to prove that it is indeed coming and to give us a general overview
of what shall occur.
Angels. The First of God's Living Creations
holy angels are the first of God's living creations that we know of. He
created them before He created the Earth and the universe built around the
When God created the
Earth and the rest of the universe it was so
overwhelmingly beautiful His holy angels, also known in Scripture as
"morning stars" and "sons of God," responded with singing and shouts of joy.
wast thou when I laid the foundation of the Earth? Declare, if thou hast
understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereon, if thou knowest? Or who
hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof
fastened? Or who laid the cornerstone thereof; when the morning stars sang
together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" (Job 38:4-7)
God's creation was complete, He put His angels in charge of it all, with
an angel named "Lucifer" as the leading angel. Lucifer was once known as "the
cherub that covereth."
A cherub is an angel and Lucifer was the head of
all angels until he crossed the line and stepped over into rebellion.
all occurred in what is called the "Pre-Adamic Age" before God
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. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast
created, til iniquity was found (occurred) in thee. By the multitude of thy
merchandise (slander) they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and
thou hast sinned:
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. Thine heart
was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason
of thy brightness (pride): I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee
before kings, that they may behold thee." (Ezekiel 28:14-17)
Attempted to Overthrow God's Throne
some point during the Pre-Adamic Age, Lucifer was able to convince one-third
of the angels to rebel with him against God's authority. (Revelation 12:4)
and his rebellious angels ascended from Earth to Heaven in an attempt to overthrow the Throne of
art thou fallen from Heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut
down to the ground, which did weaken the nations! 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: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most
High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to Hell, to the sides of the pit."
a result of Lucifer's attempted coup,
Most High God violently cast him and his fallen angels back down to Planet
Earth to be held in incarceration until their coming final judgment. Listen to
what Jesus said about this.
He said unto them, I beheld Satan (Lucifer) as lightning fall from Heaven." (Luke
judgment of God in casting back into the Earth the now fallen, sinful angels
resulted in a catastrophic destruction of the Earth's atmosphere and surface,
as well as the destruction of all Pre-Adamic vegetation and wildlife.
destruction occurred through a flood, but not Noah's Flood. Noah's Flood
would come thousands of years later during the Adamic Age.
Pre-Adamic flood is commonly referred to as "Lucifer's
Flood." The Prophet Jeremiah, as well as others, make clear
reference to it.
beheld the Earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens,
and they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and
all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the
birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a
wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of
the Lord, and by His fierce anger. For thus hath the Lord said, The whole
land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end." (Jeremiah
Perfect Creation Was Thrown into Confusion & Chaos
Earth, which had originally been created in beauty and organization by Holy God, now
became without form and void as floodwaters and darkness covered the Earth.
the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth. And the Earth was
(became) without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep,
and the Spirit of God moved (brooded) upon the face of the waters." (Genesis
Genesis 1:1 we see God created the Heaven and the Earth and this would have
been done to perfection. The Bible says God is not the author of confusion,
(1 Corinthians 14:33)
Genesis 1:2 we see the Earth became
"without form and void" and the Holy Spirit brooded over it.
verse actually says the Earth "was thrown into
confusion and chaos."
It is clear that something catastrophic and
destructive occurred between verses 1 and 2 of Genesis chapter one.
catastrophic flood with its destruction was the
result of Lucifer and fallen angels attempting to exalt Lucifer's
Kingdom over the Kingdom of Almighty God and being violently cast back down into the
Earth like great bolts of lightning.
The Earth had now become a
spiritual prison for fallen angels and their commander, Lucifer, whose name was later changed to
means "bringer of light" or "light-bearer" for he once
bore the very Glory of God.
means "to obstruct and oppose; to accuse; adversary."
appropriate name change, indeed, for a rebellious former high angel gone
name change to "Satan" is first revealed in the book of Job,
chapter one, verses six through twelve.
God Restored the Earth & Promised a Redeemer
Lucifer's Flood, approximately
six thousand years ago at the beginning of the Adamic Age, God restored the
Planet Earth and its atmosphere.
can read the Biblical account of the re-creation of the Heavens and Earth in
Genesis chapter one, verses three through thirty-one.
these verses are considered to be the narrative of God creating the Heavens
and the Earth, but this is incorrect.
can know this narrative is the account of God re-creating and restoring the
Heavens and the Earth because of something God said to Adam and Eve once He had finally
placed them in the Garden.
God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and
REPLENISH the Earth and subdue it." (Genesis 1:28a)
would not have told Adam and Eve to "replenish" the Earth had it not been
previously filled and built up only to be emptied and destroyed.
defines "replenish" as "to make full or complete again, as by
supplying what is lacking and used up." The Merriam Webster
Dictionary defines the verb "replenish" as "to fill or build
up something again; to fill with persons or animals; to fill up again."

of Planet Earth after its catastrophic destruction. A catastrophic
destruction which occurred as the result of Satan and fallen angels being
cast back down to Earth from Heaven.
its re-creation, Satan and fallen angels were allowed a
certain degree of freedom to roam the Earth and its atmosphere. To this day
they remain and continue to tempt and deceive all who are unaware of Christ's victory
Adam and Eve were created at the beginning of the Adamic Age, Satan and his
angels were already here in their fallen state. It was here, in the
re-created, renewed Earth, that Satan deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden.
As a result, Adam and
Eve ceased to be like God and sin had now corrupted God's human creation -
including all of their offspring for every generation to come.
this time Satan, fallen angels and demon powers have cast a veil of fear, unbelief,
rebellion, possession and oppression
across the peoples and the nations of the world. A veil which the
Lord Himself will ultimately come and remove.
He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all
people, and the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up
death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces;
and the rebuke of His people shall He take away from off all the Earth: for
the Lord hath spoken." (Isaiah 25:7-8)
prophesied to Satan that because of what he had done to Adam and Eve in the
Garden, he would be cursed, judged
and ultimately destroyed by a Redeemer Whom God would personally send.
the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art
cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly
shalt thou go, and dust shall thou eat all the days of thy life: and I will
put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; It
shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise His heel." (Genesis 3:15)
Destruction Return to the Earth
seventeen hundred years into the Adamic Age, and as a result of Adam and Eve's
sin, man's wickedness had become tremendously great.
result of man's wickedness, the Most High
God allowed the Earth to again be judged through what is known as Noah's
At the time of Noah's Flood, God was especially judging a specific
group of fallen angels for having sexual relations with the daughters of men
and producing giant offspring. The Earth was literally being overrun by these
giants which are called "Nephilim."
were giants in the Earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of
God (angels) came in unto the daughters of (human) men, and they bare children to them, the
same became mighty men (giants) which were of old, men of renown.
"And God saw that
the wickedness of man was great in the Earth, and that every imagination of
the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord
that He had made man on the Earth, and it grieved Him in His heart.
Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the Earth;
both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it
repenteth Me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the
Lord." (Genesis 6:4-8)
the time of God's allowed judgment through Noah's Flood, God imprisoned the fallen
angels who were having sexual relations with human women. This was obviously
to prevent them from repeating their wickedness with human women and
producing even more giant offspring.
believe the disembodied spirits of their giant offspring were imprisoned with
All fallen angels and demons are
not yet confined in Hell, only the spirits of the fallen angels who were
having sexual relations with human women and the disembodied spirits of the
giants they produced.
also believe these fallen angels, and the disembodied spirits of the giants
they produced, are the imprisoned spirits Jesus
preached to when He went into Hell.
Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the Just for the unjust, that He
might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but quickened by the
Spirit: by which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison; which
sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the
days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few that is eight souls
were saved by water." (2 Peter 3:18-20)

disembodied spirits of their giant offspring, He made perfectly clear to them exactly why, when,
where and how
they were going to be judged.
is further Scriptural evidence that the only fallen angels presently confined
to Hell are those who sinned with the daughters of human men.
if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to Hell, and
delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; and
spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person a preacher of
righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly ... the
Lord knoweth how to deliver the Godly out of temptations and to reserve the
unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished." (2 Peter 2:4-5,9)
"And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own
habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the
judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over
to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an
example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire." (Jude 6-7)
& Unchained Fallen Angels Are Presently Confined to Planet Earth
Satan and his unchained fallen angels who did not commit sexual sin with human
women are still incarcerated here on Planet Earth and within its atmosphere.
and fallen angels are allowed a certain degree of freedom of activity while
a matter of fact, the Apostle Paul
referred to Satan as the god (small "g") of this world.
if our Gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: in whom the god of
this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light
of the glorious Gospel of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto
them." (2 Corinthians 4:3-4)
Apostle Paul also referred to Satan as "the prince of the power of the
air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience."
Christ, Himself, repeatedly referred to Satan as "the prince of this
is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast
out." (John 12:31)
I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath
nothing in Me." (John 14:30)
titles, and others, signify that in many ways Satan rules over the ideas,
ideals, beliefs, opinions, hopes, dreams and views of the majority of the
people in the world.
titles also indicate that Satan's influence encompasses false religions,
man's philosophies and traditions, educational systems, political systems,
commerce and entertainment.
this is not to say that Satan is sovereign and rules over the world in its
alone is Sovereign.
these titles do reveal that Almighty God, according to His plans and
purposes, is presently allowing Satan and demon powers to operate in the
Earth within the specified boundaries He has set for them.
the Bible says that Satan has power over the world, it is important to keep
in mind that his dominion is over unbelievers only. Believers in Jesus
Christ are no longer under Satan's control. Believers in Jesus Christ have dominion
over Satan and demon powers. We will discuss this later.
keep in mind that only unbelievers and disobedient believers are caught in
Satan's trap and lie within his power.

is primarily the unsaved people of the world that Satan is "god"
of. Satan does not have absolute dominion in the Earth. He is
only able to rule over unbelievers and disobedient believers in Christ who
follow his agenda, consciously or unconsciously.
Anyone who is not
yielded to God through Christ and His Word is yielded to
Satan, the god of
this world, the prince of the power of the air.
Satan, fallen angels and demon powers are allowed freedom of activity and
presently rule this evil world, they know they are awaiting their final judgment in the
Lake of Fire.
Angels & Demons Know Their Coming Judgment & Destiny
times during Jesus' Earth Ministry demon spirits would recognize Him, crying
out, begging Him to not judge them before their appointed, promised time.
when He was come to the other side in the country of the Gergesenes, there
met Him two possessed with demons, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce
so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out saying,
What have we to do with Thee, Jesus, Thou Son of Man? Art Thou come hither to
torment us before the time?" (Matthew 8:28-29)
we have clear evidence of fallen angels and demon spirits knowing there is a
coming time when they will be judged for all Eternity.
angels and demon spirits seem to know better than most professing Christians
that God's judgments are
Christian's Daily Judgment of Satan, Fallen Angels & Demons
Jesus' Earth walk He faced both indirect and direct confrontation with
In Matthew's Gospel, chapter two, King Herod tried to deceive
the Wise Men into telling him where the baby Jesus was so he could kill
Him. He was unable to convince them to do so. As a result, King
Herod went into a rage and slew all the children two years old and under who
were living in Bethlehem and surrounding areas. (Matthew 2:1-16) This was an
indirect confrontation of Satanic powers upon Jesus when He was just a
thirty years later Jesus faced direct confrontation with Satanic powers
through the madman of Gadera. This man had
potentially thousands of demons abiding within him, all allowed in by one
ruling evil spirit. He came running at Jesus with rocks in his hands, hair
matted, naked and screaming. In eight simple words, "Come out of
the man thou unclean spirit," this insane man was instantly delivered by
the course of His life, Jesus the Master, our example in all things, faced
continual indirect and direct confrontation with Satanic powers.
believers in Jesus Christ will be indirectly attacked by Satan and demon
powers through demon-oppressed or possessed human beings. In some cases these
indirect attacks will come through unlearned Christians, family members,
friends and even strangers.
believers in Jesus Christ will also be directly confronted by Satan
and demons with the lust for food, money, sex, power and many other things.
indirect and direct attacks occur, the believer must use the Name of
and demanding Satan and demon powers to cease and desist
must not make the mistake of believing that only Jesus is able to put down demon spirits
in this Earth as they await judgment. Jesus delegated His authority
over Satan and demons to all believers in Him.
Listen to what He told His
disciples at the same time He told them that He witnessed His Father cast
Satan out of Heaven as a lightning bolt.
the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord even the demons are subject
unto us through Thy Name. And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning
fall from Heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and
scorpions (Satan and demons) and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing
shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not that the
(evil) spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice because your names are
written in Heaven." (Luke 10:17-20)
Jesus reveals to His disciples of all generations that He has delegated His
power over Satan and demons to them. He specifically said that He gives His
disciples power to tread on Satan and demons and that
the spirits must submit
to His disciples.
Bible reveals that when Jesus went into the bowels of the Earth for three
days, He defeated Satan and fallen angels, stripping them of authority over
[Jesus] having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a shew of them
openly, triumphing over them in it." (Colossians 2:15)
then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He [Jesus] also
Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He [Jesus] might
destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and delivered
them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to
bondage." (Hebrews 2:14-15)
Satan is the god of this world and the whole world is covered with his veil
of deception, believers in Jesus Christ have authority over him, fallen
angels and demons.
Living holy before God,
repenting immediately when one
stumbles and falls, and giving authoritative voice commands such as
"Satan and demon spirits assigned against me and mine, I bind you in Jesus'
Name!" will go a long way towards the believer living in victory over
The Dangerous Error of Warring with Satan & Demons
popular false teaching of "Spiritual Warfare" or "warring with
Satan and demons" seems to recycle back around to the Body of Christ
every twenty to twenty-five years. Satan never really comes up with anything
Solomon addressed the issue of "there's nothing new under the sun"
thousands of years ago.

that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there
anything whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of
old time, which was before us." (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Bible-illiterate as often as he does because he has found it to be quite
effective in hindering the believer's authority over him.

Christ has already done. There is simply the need to re-enforce
Christ's victory over Satan, fallen angels and demons through the use of His

and demon powers do not obey those who attempt to re-accomplish Christ's
utter defeat of them. They know the one attempting to do so is in ignorance
of God's Word, unbelief and not faith.
Authoritative voice commands such as

frequently in faith and expecting them to obey, will hold Satan and demons in check as they await their final

said Satan and fallen angels, although they are awaiting eternal judgment,
are presently judged in the lives of believers who know how to use their
Christian authority. Again, this is done by binding Satan and demon powers daily and
in the strong Name of Jesus.

the Devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this
world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you

Returns & Satan's Final Judgment Begins

False Prophet, fallen angels and demon powers will wreak tremendous havoc on
the Earth, particularly against the Nation of Israel and the Jewish

At that time Satan will be taken by force by an unnamed angel and
imprisoned in the Bottomless Pit for a thousand years.
I saw an angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit
and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old
serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, and
cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon
him, that he should deceive the nations no more, til the thousand years
should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season."
Bottomless Pit is the same one
mentioned in Revelation chapter nine, it is a great bottomless furnace
where light and oxygen are choked out by reason of tremendous volumes of
This pit is filled with demonic locusts and scorpions. The locusts are
shaped like horses prepared for battle. They have man-like faces and wear crowns
of a gold-like substance. They have hair as women's hair and their teeth are the teeth of
lions. They wear breastplates of iron and the sound of their wings is the sound
of horses and chariots running to battle. These demonic locusts have tails like scorpions with
great stingers within.
For the first time in his existence, Satan
will be subjected to personal torment and punishment in this Bottomless Pit.
Indeed, this will be for him a millennium of hellish, tormenting
conditions, which will make him very, very angry.
one can imagine, during his one thousand years of confinement, Satan's mind
will be obsessed with destructive thoughts and plans for what he will do to
deceive the nations of the world and to destroy Holy God when he is released for a short period at

will then make one final effort
to overthrow the nations of the world, Israel in particular and the very Throne of God.
when the thousand years are expired, Satan will be loosed out of his prison.
And he shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of
the Earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together in battle; the number of
whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the Earth,
encompassed the camp of the Saints about, and the Beloved City; and fire came
down from God out of Heaven and devoured them." (Revelation 20:7-9)

night forever and ever." (Revelation 20:10)

rebellion from his first attempted coup against the Throne of God to his last attempted
coup at the end of Christ's Millennial Reign.
Together they shall be tormented day and night forever.
Satan, the thief, whom Jesus said came to steal, to kill and to destroy, the
greatest murderer, deceiver and liar of all time, will be humiliated and tormented for
all of Eternity.

women who defied God, rejected His Laws, rejected human conscience or
rejected Jesus Christ.

from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his

same one who once made the Earth to tremble and the kingdoms to shake.

thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the
man who made the Earth to tremble, that did shake the kingdoms; That made the
world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the
house of his prisoners?" (Isaiah 14:15-17)

earlier, Satan is finally confined to the Lake of Fire.
Those who once feared him will find
themselves now amazed by his absolute powerlessness and total humiliation.
