Why The Devil Is ‘Unresponsive’ And ‘Immobilised’ Forever, How There Are No More Outward Miracles Here For Believers, And More… (Updated)
■ 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).
The Old Testament spoke of newness which could be had by believing the New – by believing in Messiah (Christ) who was given [as high priest in the order of Melchizadek (Psalm 110:4, 45:7)] for the [mediating (1 Timothy 2:5)] of the New covenant (Isaiah 42:6, 49:8, 2 Corinthians 5:17).
This article simply aims to list some of the blessings which are found in the New Covenant – one of the major blessings being everlasting life without end at resurrection.
Hebrews 10:5 references Psalm 40:6 – however, instead of saying ‘ear’ as the Psalm does, Hebrews says ‘body’.
Here the two verses are reconciled and explained in context to show that when Hebrews 10:5 says ‘body’, said body has the open ‘ear’ of Psalm 40:6.
The following explanation is intended to share how Hebrews 8:13 in no way says that a believer in Christ (Messiah) no longer observes the law of Moses.
Rather, in context we will see that it speaks of something else.
The word ‘covenant’ here refers to the way a person is to be found righteous.
A believer under the new covenant (Jeremiah 31:31, Isaiah 42:6, 49:8) is justified and ultimately saved by grace (Isaiah 53:11-12, Ephesians 2:8-9).
This grace means everlasting life without end, at ressurection (Isaiah 28:16, 28:18, 53:11-12).
A person is thus no longer destined for judgement under the old covenant and liable to eventually perish (Isaiah 28:22).
With this faith, a believer observes the Law of Moses (Torah);
Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.
Romans 3:31 ESV
In summary we will see that for a believer, the old covenant of righteousness by deeds is exchanged for the new covenant of complete righteousness by grace through faith (Philippians 3:9, Ephesians 2:8-9) which ultimately leads to everlasting life without end at resurrection.
This explanation aims to show that ‘the angel of the LORD’, is not necessarily the same angel in every instance.
Such would inturn mean that the incorrect man made doctrine known as the ‘trinity’ – which typically counts every instance of ‘angel of the LORD’ (especially in the Old Testament) as being a reference for it meaning it is Christ appearing – as incorrect.
This is intended to be done very briefly, by sharing the account of when Christ (Messiah) was born on the earth – and at the same time, the angel of the LORD appeared before some people with the glory of the LORD surrounding them all in another place.
Explaining how the ‘overwhelming scourge’ phenomenon mentioned in Isaiah 28:16, 28:18 is deeply linked with the ‘…evil I do not want is what I keep on doing…. it is sin living in me that does it…’ of Romans 7:19-20 ESV – in that it is those worldly people who wield spiritual wickedness of Ephesians 6:12, that are sinning and not a believer.
Here some Holy Scriptures from the Old and New Testaments will be shared, and some will also be explained with regard to;
■ Loving Enemies
■ G-d’s Discipline Is Good
■ Overcomming Sin and Trial
The purpose of this explanation, is to show how the New Testament (Brit Chadasha) was written in languages native to ancient Israel, and also Greek.
We know this as the annointed holy Jews who penned the New Testament, such as the apostle Paul, were multi-lingual and had to communicate with people of different languages – both verbally (Acts 17:22) and also with written letters and manuscripts (Galatians 6:11), outside of Israel.
This explanation aims to share Isaiah 42:6, 49:8, two fantastic verses which show us that the servant whom G-d sent is one man (Messiah/Christ) and therefore not a nation (many people).
These verses both state Messiah was ‘given’ as/for a [new] ‘covenant’ (ref. Jeremiah 31:31) for the many – in the sense that he is the High Priest in the order of Melchizadek (Psalm 110:4, 45:7) for the new covenant.
Showing how Matthew 27:46 indeed references the beginning of Psalm 22:1
‘…”My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”…’
(Psalm 22:1 NIV)
– however the recitation of the Psalm stops there, and the actual context of what is being communicated is found in Isaiah 49:4
‘…“I have labored in vain;… yet surely my right is with the LORD, and my recompense with my God.”’
(Isaiah 49:4 ESV)
– As only part of the people believed, Isaiah says ‘…laboured in vain…’ (ESV), and this communicates how Christ yearns for all people to be saved, and not just some – much like His Father’s will (1 Timothy 2:3-4, 2 Peter 3:9).
Isaiah also shows us how Christ (Messiah) also looked forward to being at the right hand of G-d above, again.
