In Satan’s End Times World: God is a Master Counterprogrammer

GOD'S WORD: A battleground between God and the enemies of God for centuries.

counterprogramming

In broadcast programming, counterprogramming is the practice of offering television programs to attract an audience from another television station airing a major event. It is also referred when programmers offer something different from the rival’s program as an alternative, to increase the audience size.

Satan (the devil) is the prince of this world.

Satan has also been called the “prince of the power of the air.”

“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
–John 12:31

“Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”
–John 14:30

“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience”
–Ephesians 2:2

As the prince of the world, Satan controls the world’s authorities, media and publications.

As the prince of the power of the air, Satan controls all of the world’s broadcasting.

Satan controls the governments of man.

Satan controls the Corporate Media (Satan’s Mouthpiece).

Satan controls the education system.

Satan controls science and its sidekick, medicine.

Satan controls  finance, money and business.

Satan controls the fashion and style worlds.

These spheres are IN ADDITION to Satan calling the shots for the workers of iniquity (the witches, sorcerers, pagans, wizards, idol worshipers, as well as those with more mundane pursuits and occupations) and all of the schemes of man run by the workers of iniquity.

With all of this worldly control–and this control becomes more unified, more rigid and more complete as man approaches the climax of history (the return of Jesus Christ)–Satan ALMOST has a lock on what the world thinks, what the world believes and what the world feels is important and true.

SO, with practically the entire world, as well as the resources of the world, in Satan’s hands, how does knowledge of God and His Son, Jesus Christ, survive?

The answer?

God is an exceptional counterprogrammer.

God uses TWO main tools to counter the deceptions and lies of Satan: His Word–which is the ONLY source of truth in the world–and His Holy Spirit–as is contained in His followers, who have their testimony of what God and His Son, Jesus Christ, has done for them. His believers also preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the “power of God unto salvation.

God’s Word is the truth.

“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
–John 17:17

And God’s Holy Spirit will lead His followers into all truth.

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
–John 16:13

With only these two small, but powerful, assets (the Word of God and the few Spirit-guided believers), the kingdom of heaven has stood against all of the schemes and wiles of the devil–as well as all of Satan’s workers and their trickery–for thousands of years.

How is this possible?

FOR SURE Satan is a tricky fellow.

BUT God knows all things, past, present and future.

FOR SURE Satan is a master deceiver.

BUT those few believers have the Holy Spirit of God to guide them into ALL truth.

FOR SURE Satan has all of the authorities of the world AND controls the edifice of the world.

BUT God is a master counterprogrammer–and God’s exceptional counterprogramming has kept the kingdom of heaven afloat for thousands of years.

Regardless of all the advantages Satan may control in the end times world.

DOES the reader feel he was more “in tune” with God and what the Bible said when he was younger?

DOES the reader have any thoughts as to why this might be?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
