The Position of Wrestling and Resting (Series 3)


If we are talking about warfare, many think it is all about fighting Satan. Eternity does not have time for Satan as we do. The kingdom of darkness is not the kingdom of Satan. Satan is a servant in the kingdom of darkness; the kingdom of darkness has been in existence before the fall of Lucifer.

Darkness is different from Satan; Satan is just a fallen angel who fell from light to darkness. There are four mighty authorities in the kingdom of darkness that is still higher than Satan.

And they are:

1. Darkness

2. Hell

3. Death

4. Iniquity

Permit me to tell you that the Satan disturbing the whole world is a messenger to these four authorities and thrones of darkness. These four personalities are in existence before Lucifer; darkness has been in existence before the fall of Lucifer.

Death has been in existence before the fall of Satan. Christ did not come to earth from heaven to fight Satan; it is an insult for Christ the Word to become flesh because of Satan. When God wanted to send satan out of heaven, angel Michael led the war, not Christ.

Lucifer is in equal ranking with angels, so it is an angel that will be sent to fight him. For you to know that Satan is too small, compare to what Jesus will leave heaven for and becoming to fight for us. In the book of Revelation, the Bible says that it is only one angel that was sent to bound Satan and drag him to the endless pit.

See revelation 20 vs. 1 to 3:

KJV: And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

2 KJV: And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

3 KJV: 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, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season

Please re-read that Bible verse; I can't imagine that it was just one angel sent to handle the same Satan deceiving the whole world.  One angel was sent to arrest the enemy deceiving over seven billion people on earth. I laugh in Chinese

For you to know that Jesus cannot be wasting transport money from heaven to earth to come and be fighting Satan. So, Jesus did not see Satan as part of the enemy he came to fight.  There are higher enemies called hell, darkness, and iniquity, and death that Jesus came to war against, not Satan.

Satan is the least in the picture of Jesus. He became light to fight darkness; He died on the cross to conquer death for us. He traveled to hell after his death for three days to fight hell. He also became sin to fight sin.

Mind you, the Bible does not say he became a sinner. The book of 2 Corinthians 5 vs. 21 says he became sin. That shows us that sin is a personality. To become a sinner is different from becoming sin.

21 KJV: 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 (See 2 Corinthians 5:21).

That is why Jesus said, oh death, where is your victory and hade where is your power (See 1 Corinthians 15:55); Jesus is not talking to hade (hell) as the location; He is talking with them as personality. He did not say, Satan, where is your Victory.

Satan is in trouble in this series; I will expose him; you will see him like a nylon bag. It is baby Christians that fight and frightening when Satan roar; he is an empty barren, full of wisdom, but empty of power; Satan only relies on the power of hell and death to attack.

God did not create Lucifer with power; he was an angel in charge of music, so power was not part of his creature's material.  When he fell, he did not fall with any power from heave; he only fell with wisdom. The scripture never used power to describe Satan. he is a deceiver; he relies on hell and death to manifest any power.

That is why just one angel was sent to bind him in the book of Revelation 20 vs. 1-3. That is, Satan is not the major focus of Christ; if you can understand his deceptive weapon and know his device, you have overcome Satan.

So, there are higher enemies that the mature in Christ are wrestling with; Paul called them the wicked rulers in the heavenly, He did not say wicked ruler, but he says rulers that are they are more than one (See Ephesians 6:12).

The gate of hell is there; Jesus did not say Satan will not prevail over the Church. He did not say the gate of Satan will not prevail over the Church, but he said the gate of hell (See Matthew 16:18). That is, the gate of Satan is different from the gate of hell.

Hell is a powerful personality that Christ has to come from heaven to fight. The heart of man is a gate to the throne of hell. There are personalities of flesh and blood who have made themselves the gate of hell.

Where darkness, iniquity, hell, and death are doing, meeting Satan himself bows because he is the messenger to those four personalities over this earth. The serpent opens the door for iniquity to come to earth, then iniquity (sin) opens the door for death to come, while death opens the door for darkness to come to earth. The main focus of the earth is not Satan but darkness.

See Genesis 1 vs. 2:

2 KJV: And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

The main concern of the kingdom of God is darkness; the end product of Satan's appearances anywhere is to open the door for darkness to come. Go and study the scripture very well; hell, darkness, death was mentioned on many occasions both in the old testament and new testament than the word Satan.

Use Bible search to confirm this on your phone; hell and death always move together. Satan appeared in the garden of Eden and open the gate of sin (iniquity) to enter the earth, and for good 4,000 years, we never see him on the scene again.

His major assignment is to be opening the gate of this earth for darkness, sin, and death to come upon the earth. After Satan (the old serpent) used deceptive weapons to open the gate of the earth for hell and sin, we begin to see the activity of darkness, sin, and death on earth.

See the book of Genesis 4 vs. 7:

7 KJV: If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

Some version said sin knocks at your door. Not Satan knocks at your door; not demon knocked at your door. But sin knocked at your door, the same sin that was found in Lucifer in heaven that interrupted the order of heaven has also found himself on earth.  Who is sin? Some said Sin is breaking the law, ...I laughed... Activities of it are only revealed by law.

Fornication is not a sin; fornication is just one of the activities or fruit of sin. Sin is not an action; sin is not active; by action and activities, you can know his presence, but sin is an ancient personality that has been existing before the fall of Lucifer.

So, the concern of the kingdom of God is not Satan at all. Satan is just a messenger. He opens the gate of the earth for sin to come, and sin opens the gate for death, and death opens the gate of darkness and darkness covered the earth, and gross darkness covers the people for good 4,000 years (Isaiah 60 vs. 1-2).

Suddenly the light came again in the form of Christ and dwelled among man, and after 4,000 years, we saw the serpent again coming to do Christ what he did in the garden of Eden. He was sent again by hell and death to Christ, but he failed.

Can you now see why Satan was not mentioned like darkness, hell, and death in the old testament? The word hell was mentioned over 31 times in the old testament, the world darkness was mentioned 142 times in 47 Bible verses in the old testament, and Satan was only mentioned not up to 5 times, we saw in Genesis as deceiver on earth once, and we saw him in heaven in the book of Job and the book of Zachariah with Joshua, the high priest.

His major assignment is to open the door for sin, darkness, and death to come into the earth. If the hell was sin, death, and darkness to come into any church or family, they send the deceiver the old serpent to use deceptive tool to open the door for sin to enter and once since enters the wages of sin is death, if you are a worker of iniquity, you will surely be paid the salary of death said by Daddy Enoch Adeboye in some few days open heaven. So, when Jesus came, his focus is darkness, hell, sin, and death. See what Jesus said:

18. I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death (Rev 1:18).

Look at the concern of Jesus, hell, and death. Who are these two personalities? Jesus said I have the keys of hell and death. He did not say I have the key to hell or key to death, but He said I have the keys of hell; the key of hell is different from key to hell.

Key in the realm of the spirit means a mystery, a secret knowledge that becomes knowledge once it is unveiled. So, knowledge is key in the realm of the spirit. So, when Jesus said I have the keys of hell and death, what he was saying is that I have the secret of hell and death.

Jesus can't have the knowledge of hell, and I will be ignorant of hell; Jesus can't have the key of death, and I will be ignorant of death. Has it now occurred to you that it is not in the assignment of Jesus to fight Satan for us?

He came to fight darkness, hell, sin, and death. It is our assignment to fight Satan, and if you don't understand this, you will be claiming I am seated with Christ, yet the devil will be attacking you full time. You sleep, and a sister came to have sex with you in a dream, and you wake up seeing sperm on your body, and you begin to claim you are seated with Christ.

For it to come to your dream alone is an insult to your knowledge of the new creature's reality. For you to know that there is more to all we know. Jesus said He has the key of hell, and for years I could not know the mystery of hell. Deep things must be unfolded.
