■ Brief Summary
Showing how the devil (satan/Lucifer /Jezebel ref.Isaiah 14:12 KJV / Revelation 2:20, 2:22) and all his angels are no longer responsive, but are instead unresponsive and immobilised forevermore.
This is said as the Devil was once referred to as an ‘arrogant man’ (Habukkak 2:5 ESV), however is now a ‘mute’ / ‘lifeless stone’ (Habukkak 2:19 NASB2000/ESV) that is unresponsive and cannot even ‘teach’ (i.e. function with any authority) (ref. Habakkuk 2:19 ESV), which has been buried in a ‘burial’ (Isaiah 14:20 ESV) and is now on a ‘sickbed’ (ref. Revelation 2:20) in the [spiritual component] of the lake that burns with fire – as he has been judged, and is thus tormented in this way forever more (Revelation 20:10).
Revelation chapter 13 is also a further support which shows the devil is no longer responsive or functioning here – as it describes the time when he (dragon; ref. Revelation 13:2) gave authority over the ‘power of the air’ to men in government/rulership (beast; ref. Revelation 13:1-4). These men (beast) then gave authority to the new beast (new government/rulership structure – ‘second beast’; ref. Revelation 13:11-12), and it is here in this particular transfer of authority that the devil was not recorded as being involved in – he had already been buried in the lake that burns with fire, as a silent stone that cannot teach on a sickbed.
A believer is to peaceably obey local governments as per Romans 13:1-2 ESV and even Matthew 5:44 KJV – however they are not to align themselves to any worldly spiritual values or rights that worldly governments have (the power of the air). The reason for this is because if one does align themselves in a spiritual sense here, they are technically giving praise and worship to the devil (who is no longer functional here) as per Revelation 13:4. Those who align in a spiritual way with worldy government worship the devil. This is known as the mark of the beast (ref. Revelation 14:9) and recieving said mark (alignment ) results in torment (ref. Revelation 14:9-11). To a righteous person, this torment is wickedness, and this wickedness is of course sin (ref. Isaiah 9:18-19). The Scriptural advice here is to peaceably cease such spiritual alignment (Revelation 18:4), as it is a spiritually authoritative position that has originally come from a forbidden source – being the devil (ref. Revelation 13:2, 2 Corinthians 6:17).
The spiritual component of the lake that burns with fire is a place that mankind does not visit as they are punished in the physical component of the lake that burns with fire.
We know that mankind does not visit the spiritual side of the lake of fire, as fire was reserved for heaven and earth.
This fire represents judgement for spirits (heaven) and humans (earth), seperately (ref. 2 Peter 3:7).
We also see that other verses which instead speak of after the great judgement day (ref. Revelation 20:11-15), and the [spiritual] ‘end’ of the age/earth here throughout Scripture, speak of mankind burning in the lake of fire, on the earth as we are now here.
The verses which speak of post the end of the earth, tend to always refer to mankind as men/people etc. (Isaiah 9:18, 66:24, Revelation 20:14, Revelation 21:8) – as opposed to verses which refer to times before the end of the age, when death and Hades had not yet been thrown into the lake that burns with fire (ref. Revelation 20:14) – and these dead men were instead called spirits/gods (ref. 1 Samuel 28:11, 28:13).
This will also be confirmed as true by explaining other valuable and important topics which essentially all serve as proofs to each other;
■ The Devil And His Angels Used To Be Reachable And Responsive On Earth
■ The Devil And His Angels Were Judged, And Are Now No Longer Responsive, As They Are ‘Locked In’, Immobilised Forever.
■ The Dead Cannot Be Comminicated With Any More, Sinful Practices Such As Mediums And Necromancers Are Extinct
■ People Go Up, And Then Come Back Down. Believers In Christ Live Above Forever Though.
■ The Mark Of The Beast In Isaiah 14:17
■ G-d Nolonger Allows Outward Miracles Or Signs By His Holy Spirit, But Does Allow Believers To Become Born Again Here.
■ What Miracles And Spiritual Things Exist Today?
■ How Can You Be So Sure The End Has Been, And Christ (Messiah) Returned (Spiritually)?
The end result of this explanation is to show how we are currently in a very spiritually dry earth here, where sin is rampant – especially in private.
The devil, his angels and every biblically unclean spirit are all unresponsive and immobilised (Habukkak 2:19, Isaiah 14:20, Revelation 2:22) – and there are only a few vital spiritual inward miracles in existence, which pertain to believers being born again by believing in Christ (Messiah) (Ezekiel 36:26-27, 2 Corinthians 5:17, John 3:3).
There is also the spiritual phenomenon known as the ‘overwhelming scourge’ (also known as ‘…the power of the air…’ ref. Ephesians 2:2), which serves as a wicked force to believers and results in trials here (Isaiah 28:18 ESV, Romans 7:19-21, Ephesians 6:12).
