Don't be a bigger fool than satan

 

 

Based on the title of this sermon, I believe satan to be a fool. If I did not, I would not have said, Don't be a bigger fool than him. So, I will answer your obvious questions of What makes satan a fool? and What does one have to do to be a bigger fool than satan? 

To answer the 1st question, I must address who satan is by telling you:

  • His linage and physical make up. (Isaiah 6:2-3, Ephesians 6:12, Psalms 104:4, Hebrews 1:7, Ezekiel 10:14, 28:11-14)
  • His power. (Job 2:7, Daniel 10:13, Ephesians 2: 2, Hebrews 2:14-15, I Corinthians 15: 54-57)
  • His rank among angels. {Ezekiel 28:14}
  • His mistake(s). {Ezekiel 28:15, Isaiah 14:12-15, Romans 16:20 }
  • His final fall and defeat. (Revelation 12:7-9, Revelation 19: 11-21, Revelation 20:1-3, Revelation 20:7-11 )
  • And how all of this makes him a fool and maybe someone you know. (1 Corinthians 15:54-57, Zechariah 3:1-2, Romans 16:20, Revelation 21:1-4)

Then, based on both the Word & common sense; I'll explain how not to be and do worst that him, satan.

Isaiah 6: 2-3.

2 Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 And they were calling to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory." 

Ezekiel 1:13-14.

13In the midst of the living creatures there was what looked like burning coals of fire, like torches moving to and fro among the living creatures; the fire was bright and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14And the living creatures darted back and forth like a flash of lightning.

On National Geographics I learned that we have 400 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy and that most galaxies have the same amount of stars or more. I learned that the Hubble telescope was recently pointed in one direction and discovered 175,000 thousand galaxies that we did not know of. Now, if you multiply 400 billion (the average amount of stars in every galaxy) times 175,000 (known galaxies in one direction of outer space), that equals 70,000,000,000,000,000 stars. I bring this up to glorify Gods power, by acknowledging that He created at the very least, this many angels in an instant. He knew them all by name. Yes. He named them before He made them. Then, this is the connection I'm making; He placed a star in the heavens to represent each angel. Wow. Like humans, God made more than just one type or race. And God placed the angels in several of His vision of what choirs are. His choirs are the Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels and (common) Angels. Then He, according to His standards, gave rank and authority to each angel He created. And out of these countless angels, one was in the top two choirs of the most powerful, splendid, beautiful, awe-inspiring and most intellectual angels. This angel was both a Seraphim and Cherubim.

Seraphim: On each side of the throne stood mysterious guardians, each supplied with six wings: two to bear them up, two veiling their faces, and two covering their feet, now naked, as became priestly service in the presence of the Almighty. His highest servants, they were there to minister to Him and proclaim His glory, each calling to the other: "Holy, holy, holy, Yahweh of hosts; all the earth is full of His glory. Their number is considerable, as they appear around the heavenly throne in a double choir and the volume of their chorus is such that the sound shakes the foundations of the palace. They are distinct from the cherubim who carry or veil God and show the presence of His glory in the earthly sanctuary, whilst the seraphim stand before God as ministering servants in the heavenly court. The name is oftentimes derived from the Hebrew verb saraph ("to consume with fire").

Cherubim: Cherubim means the Seat of the Glory of God and is interpreted: Fulness of Knowledge. Though we realize that cherubim are exalted heavenly powers and virtues; yet if thou wilt, thou too shalt be one of the cherubim. For if cherubim means, Seat of God, remember what the Scripture says: The soul of the just is the Seat of Wisdom.

Psalm 104:4.

4 He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants.

Hebrews 1:7.

7 In speaking of the angels he says, "He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire."

Isaiah 14:12.

12 What a comedown this, O Babylon! Daystar! Son of Dawn!


Ezekiel 10:14. 

14 Each of the cherubim had four faces: One face was that of a cherub, the second the face of a man, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.

Isaiah 6: 2-3.

2 Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 And they were calling to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory."

Ezekiel 1:13-14.

13In the midst of the living creatures there was what looked like burning coals of fire, like torches moving to and fro among the living creatures; the fire was bright and out of the fire went forth lightning. 14And the living creatures darted back and forth like a flash of lightning

Ezekiel 28:11-13.

11 The word of the LORD came to me: 12 "Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: " 'You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared. 

This angel had a body that shined like a star. And just like the sun, this angels body was a smokeless flame of fire. As a cherubim, this angel could flash back and forth like strikes of lightning. He had multiple appearances and faces. God called this angel the model of perfection. This angel was in Eden before Adam. Precious stones were made in advanced for him.

Ephesians 2:2.

2 In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God].

And as well as being a Seraphim and Cherubim, this angel was also in a choir known as the Powers. The Powers are the maintainers of all cosmic order and equilibrium. This is why this angel was called the prince of the Powers of the air. 

Ezekiel 28:14.

14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones.

Then, God placed this angel as the protector of His throne. As the leader of the choir(s) or angelic order, this angel also had rank over the Archangels or rulers of the stellar order.

Ezekiel 28:15-16.

15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you. 16 Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.

Isaiah 14:13-15.

13 You said in your heart, "I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. 14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High."  15 But you are brought down to the grave, to the depths of the pit.

Romans 16:20. 

20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

Depending on your view of the Trinity, this angel was the 2nd or 4th highest being in creation at that time. Powers, knowledge and wisdom were 2nd only to the Trinity. This angels authority was 2nd only to the Trinity. This angel was the 1st multi-racial being. This angel was part Seraphim and Cherubim. This angel was so wealthy; it had precious stones made just for it. This angel had its own colors and attire. This angel answered only to God and just as God; all the angels answered to this one angel. This angel was allowed in places that others were not. But that was not enough for this angel. It wanted God to serve it. Then, this angels life changed 180 degrees in an instant by ticking off God.

Revelation 12:7-9.

7And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9The great dragon was hurled down that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

Revelation 20:1-3.

 1And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. 2He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.

Revelation 20:7-1.1

 7When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison 8and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth "Gog and Magog" to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. 9They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

The Word tells us that not only did God defeat this angel but so did Prince Michael three times, already. Jesus defeat of this angel was without throwing a punch. After the Rapture and Armageddon, this angel will be placed in prison for 1,000 years. And then it will be set free. However, this fool starts where it left off. And this is now a death wish. Whats so crazy to me is that even though all of creation knows who and what this angel does not represent; countless saints who made the Book of Life, will rebel against God and follow this angels death wish. Yes, there will be folks who will allow this fool to fool them with some sweet talk. Whats even more astonishing, is that all of those saints who will rebel against God; will have read the bible, seen the video playback of this angels defeat and during their life; chose the only Living God as their master. 

1 Corinthians 15:54-5.7 

54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory." 55"Where, O death, is your victory?   Where, O death, is your sting?" 56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 7But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Zechariah 3:1-2. 

1 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. 2 The LORD said to Satan, "The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?"

Romans 16:20.

20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

Revelation 21:1-4

1Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

Therefore, I feel that to get saved, stay saved, get written in the Book of Life, make the Rapture, partake in Armageddon, view those to get tossed in the lake of fire, live with Jesus for 1,000 years, one decade/year/week/day/hour/minute/second to knowing what is going to take place and then still follow this angel in his last rebellion against God; makes you a bigger fool than that angel is. So, not only now but after the Rapture, after Armageddon, after the Millennium and after the revealing of the new Earth and Heaven and during all stages of Eternity; stay close to and be faithful to God.
