I wrote an entire book suggesting Obama’s role as Satan’s pawn, and prophecies not only describing him accurately but specifically naming him (using Hebrew in a biblical prophecy, and using Farsi in a Shiite prophecy in Iran.) I could easily see Turkey’s Erdogan under the same influence. And I often wonder why so many of Europe’s leaders simultaneously pursue policies of national suicide, which can only lead to collapse and WWIII as I describe in my recent book (Nostradamus and the Islamic Invasion of Europe.)
Dean Smith recently posted an interesting idea at the opentheword blog HERE – which I hadn’t thought about in a long time: that Satan puts demons into positions of power in the world to steer events away from Godly outcomes. This excerpt says it all:
“God dispatched an angel with the answer to Daniel’s prayer. When the angel [Gabriel] finally shows up, the angel says the “Prince of Persia” had thrown up road blocks hindering the delivery of the message for three weeks, but Michael the Arch angel was sent to help and the two broke through to deliver the message.
13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia. (Daniel 10:13 NASV)
…When I mentioned the Prince of Persia was a demonic angel that ruled the Kingdom of Persia (a principality and power mentioned by Paul in Ephesians,) I was shocked by the uproar this caused.
I was holding to the position, that Satan has ruling angels who are put over nations. Their goal is to try to influence secular politicians, judges and governments of every type to do Satan’s bidding…”
Many in the class were absolutely shocked that I was proposing a satanic hierarchy in the demonic realm…”
- Obviously, if the Archangel Gabriel could not overcome this leader of Persia in three weeks without the help of another archangel, then the leader of Persia was a very powerful spiritual being himself. Possibly a fallen angel, a demon.
Here is another thought provoking excerpt: “In Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness, Satan actually offered Jesus the nations of the world if Jesus worshiped him:
5 And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said to Him, “I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. (Luke 4:5-6 NASV)
Satan added the nations had been given to him and he could dispense them to whoever he wanted.
Notice that Jesus never challenged Satan’s ownership of the nations or his ability to give the nations over to whomever he wished.”
“…So this helps us understand what the Apostle Paul is referring to when he says that our real battle is not physical but spiritual:
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness…. (Ephesians 6:12 NASV)
