This is a project that has been on my mind for over four and a half years– outlining all the Books of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. This series is not ment to be an exhaustive, indepth study of the Bible, but an overview of why each of the sixty-six Books were written, and to see the unfolding plan of God, from the creation of the universe, to the consummation of all things in the Book of Revelation. Now, the information put forth in the video, comes from my own personal studies, aided by the notes that i have taken down and collected over the last sixteen years, while listening to many conservative Bible teachers. This project would have been much more difficult, had it not been for the help of those teachers of the Word, so i must give credit to whom credit is due: Dr. J. Vernon McGee (Thru The Bible Radio), William MacDonald (Believers Bible Commentary), Dr. John Walvoord and Roy B. Zuck (Editors of The Bible Knowledge Commentary Series), Dr. David Brickner (Jews For Jesus), Dr. Randall Price, Dr. Charles Halff, Dave Hunt and T. A. McMahon (The Berean Call), Dr. Adrian Rogers, Dr. Ken Ham (Answers In Genesis), Dr. John Morris (Institute for Creation Research), Roger Oakland (Understand The Times) and Zola Levitt. It is my prayer that this series will be a blessing to all who listen, and that unbelievers will come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. God bless.
The Story of Lucifer’s Fall and St. Michael the Archangel and his faithful followers won a glorious victory. In reward for his zeal and fidelity, the holy Archangel Michael was made prince and commander-in-chief of all the heavenly legions.
The angels willingly and gratefully acknowledge his supremacy recognizing, after God (and the Virgin Mary), they owe to him their perseverance in grace and their eternal happiness. With loving submission they receive from him their various offices. They are attentive to his slightest wish, seeing in his commands and regulations the will of God.
PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
St. Michael receives the highest honor in the heavenly court. He also deserves high honor from us. After Our Lady, he was the first to recognize and adore the Word-made-flesh, and the first to be illumined by His grace.
The Church affirms that Satan was once a good angel and that he (and many other angels) freely chose to reject God. Their choice was final and definite. Satan has no chance of repentance.
This is because angels were given an extraordinary intellect, not clouded in any way. So Lucifer knew exactly what he was doing when he chose to rebel against God and he knew all the implications of it.
This rebellion was accomplished at the beginning of time, shortly after the creation of the angels, before the creation of men. This can be deduced simply by the fact that Satan was already present at the Garden of Eden.
Traditionally speaking, all of the angels in the world were created at one instance at the very beginning of creation. One theory that we are allowed to believe is that on the first day when God made “light,” the “light” He made was the angels (Gen. 1:3). This is further confirmed when God “divided the light from the darkness,” referring to the rebellion of the angels led by Lucifer (Gen. 1:4). This is brought forth by Saint Augustine in “City of God:”
For when God said, “Let there be light, and there was light,” if we are justified in understanding in this light the creation of the angels, then certainly they were created partakers of the eternal light which is the unchangeable Wisdom of God, by which all things were made, and whom we call the only-begotten Son of God; so that they, being illumined by the Light that created them, might themselves become light and be called “Day,” in participation of that unchangeable Light and Day which is the Word of God, by whom both themselves and all else were made. (Book 11, Chapter 9, emphasis added)
It makes logical sense as the “Sun” and “Moon” were not created until the fourth day!
The Weakest takes on the Strongest
What makes this battle at the beginning of creation even more interesting is the fact that Lucifer was created by God as a “Seraphim,” in the highest choir of angels, and St. Michael was an “Archangel,” one of the lowest choirs of angels.
In the “logic” of God’s divine Providence this makes perfect sense. God continually uses the “lowest,” “weakest,” and most “vulnerable” of this world to confound the “strongest.”
“God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong, God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are” (1 Corinthians 1:27-28 RSV).
When looking upon a crucifix, we see this played out in full force. God did not ride on his war-horse from Heaven to destroy death; He humiliated Himself and became a child, who then grew-up and was killed by men.
This is a great lesson for us all.
We must remember that we will never be able to defeat the influence of the devil or sin by sheer force. We can not think that somehow “we” will defeat Satan. God alone is our strength and it takes great humility to allow God full power over our lives. To use a phrase of St. John the Baptist,
“He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30).
Then and only then will we be victorious over the Evil One.
St. Michael is also the first apostle, because he was the first to announce the Savior to the angelic choirs. He is the first lieutenant of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for he was the first to lead the faithful servants of God to victory against the enemy.
Both in the Old and New Testaments, St. Michael is called the guardian angel of the People of God. The Fathers of the Church are united in teaching that St. Michael is the primary guardian angel and protector of the Catholic Church.
Innumerable spiritual and temporal blessings have been attributed to him from the earliest days of Christianity.
INVOKING THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD PRAYER FOR PROTECTION
Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.
I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.
I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.
Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.
May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.
With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.
Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, amen.

Can Modern Christianity Give Up Satan—and Evil?
By Mette Ivie Harrison
I grew up in a strictly religious household where we were taught that Satan was a literal force for evil in the world, that he was a former angel who rebelled against God and was thrust out of heaven, and that there were other spirits who followed after him and became demons. We prayed frequently for protection from Satan, heard stories about literal possession, and even talked about how to tell the difference between an angel and a demon if an incorporeal being appeared before us. This was all meant to protect us from evil and to help us always “choose the right.”
But when I was in my twenties and no longer part of my parents’ household, I began to question the idea that Satan was the reason that people chose badly. Was it really Satan’s fault that a friend of mine had been tempted to leave her marriage? Was it really Satan who told young women to wear scanty clothing or told young men to watch pornography? Wasn’t it sufficient to say that these people had simply chosen these things on their own? What was the purpose of talking about “Satan” except to stir up fear about an invisible force that could take power of us—or to explain away mental disorders that we surely now have better names for than possession? Maybe Satan wasn’t real, but I continued to think that “evil” was.
A friend of mine studied serial killers with a kind of obsession and insisted to me that certain people were born utterly without a conscience and that whether or not Satan was real, there was truly evil in the world. When I studied the horrors of the Holocaust in my graduate German career, it seemed impossible to deny that evil was real. Hitler and Himmler and Goering planned out such evil acts and then the men around them seemed eager enough to obey these terrible commands. This had to be evil. And what about the terror attacks that we as a country endured on 9/11? Surely those were acts of evil by people who wanted nothing more than to cause harm because their hearts had been turned to evil.
But the more I thought about it, the more I wondered even about the usefulness of the label “evil.” Even without the physical embodiment of evil in the person of Satan, the idea that evil can overtake people seems to eliminate at least a portion of the responsibility that we humans should be taking for our own actions and for their consequences. When we talk about Hitler or the Nazis being evil, it separates them from us, making it so that we do not think of our own choices as having the capacity to be as wrong. It also makes us see certain people as no longer quite human. I am not sure that this is a good thing for modern Christianity.
As a religious person who would like to see more good in the world, I cannot accept the idea that people ever completely lose the capacity to make decisions for themselves. Do they lose clear-sightedness? Yes. Do they choose selfishness? Yes. Do I think that people are sometimes so caught up in nationalistic rhetoric that they stop thinking for themselves and ignore the faint protestations of a better, moral self? Yes. But it happens on both sides. Even during World War II against the Nazis, the allies were as capable of making terrible moral decisions as the Germans were. It is not only the other side that works in propaganda, after all.
The more I reconsider the idea of “good” and “evil” in the framework of modern Christianity, the more I wonder if we are simply dividing the world into “good” and “evil” based on people who agree with our morals and those who don’t. This seems not only wrong, but destined to lead to continuing conflicts with cultures, religions, moralities, and governments that are not like ours. Doing so makes us feel good on a simplistic, knee jerk level. Doing so also makes us feel more secure in our sense of self and in our own moral compass and sometimes moral complexity can be very threatening to that sense of security.
But this is my question: does continuing to talk about “Satan” and “evil” make the world a better place? Does it actually contribute to the kind of better world that Christ tasks us with making in our own communities, through loving our enemies? When we say that those who oppose our views politically are “evil,” does that help us to choose unselfishness and self-sacrifice? When we talk about our own sins as times when we gave into the “temptations of Satan,” are we excusing ourselves in any way from doing the same thing again?
Maybe it’s time to stop talking about morality in such simplistic terms. What would happen if we gave up not only the idea of a personal embodiment of evil in the form of Satan, but also the idea of “good” and “evil” as forces beyond human control? What do we lose religiously if we simply accept that some people act selfishly and that others don’t, that some people are courageous even if we disagree with the morality they believe in? I think what we lose is the idea that our religion, our country, and our morality is the one approved by the only true God. But there is much to be gained on the other side in terms of expanding our own understanding and perhaps even seeing our own mistakes.
Just because I am ready to give up the idea of “evil,” I don’t think it means giving up on the idea of “good.” Surely pointing fingers at others instead of at ourselves is exactly what Christ meant when he talked about seeing the mote in another’s eye and not the beam in our own. Maybe if evil exists, it is only the refusal to examine our own assumptions about what is right when faced with the reality of the consequences of our actions. It isn’t somewhere outside of humanity. It’s in every single choice we make. And only when we accept that can we also allow that we can change, and choose good instead—no matter what we have done before.::::https://www.huffingtonpost.com/mette-ivie-harrison/can-modern-christianity-g_b_9218778.html
Do dogs go to heaven? | Bibleinfo.com
Posted on January 5, 2018 by curi56 spiritandanimal.wordpress.com
Do dogs go to heaven?
We love our pets—whether dogs, cats, birds etc—and often consider them to be members of the family. The topic of animals and pets going to heaven received extra attention when Pope Francis was mistakenly quoted as saying, “Paradise is open to all God’s creatures.” However, these words about pets were actually spoken by Pope Paul IV years earlier. The question still remains, do our dogs go to heaven when they die?
One of the most poignant stories in the Bible is the parable the prophet Nathan told to King David. The prophet told the king of a poor man and his pet lamb. He said, “The poor man had nothing, except one little ewe lamb which he had bought and nourished; and it grew up together with him and with his children. It ate of his own food and drank from his own cup and lay in his bosom; and it was like a daughter to him” (2 Samuel 12:3, NKJV). Because we love animals, often the question arises, “will our pets be in heaven?” However, the Bible is silent on this question. It neither confirms it nor denies it. Yet there are some points we can consider.
Everything created for God’s glory
God created everything—including animals—for His pleasure and His glory. The Bible says, “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created” (Revelation 4:11, NKJV). Human beings were specifically created for God’s glory. “Everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him; yes, I have made him” (Isaiah 43:7, NKJV). But the Bible speaks of even inanimate objects, such as the sun, moon, and stars, praising God (see Psalm 148:3). Of course, we know these objects cannot praise God in the same way we humans can. However, they praise God by shining. By carrying out the role God planned for them, they glorify their Creator.
Although all of God’s creation is for His glory and pleasure, human beings alone were created in God’s image. Animals were made from the same dust as humans and have the breath of life in them as we do, but God made men and women in His own image and entrusted them with the responsibility of overseeing, protecting, and enjoying the rest of His creation. “Then God said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’ And God said, ‘See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food;’ and it was so” (Genesis 1:26-30, NKJV). “The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to tend and keep it” (Genesis 2:15, NKJV).
Because humans can reason, we are able to make intelligent and moral decisions; animals cannot. God did not create animals with the ability to choose right or wrong, to accept or reject salvation. Only humans were given this ability to reason.
Genesis 2:8-9 (NKJV), “And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.”
God warned Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil—“for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” (Genesis 2:17, NKJV). Only humans have the ability to make moral decisions for or against God.
“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;” (Deuteronomy 30:19, NKJV)
Joshua 24:15 (ESV) And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
The plan of salvation is designed for human beings, not for animals. Since animals cannot reason and make moral decisions, they are not included in the salvation God has offered to humans. Jesus died to “save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21, NKJV). We are saved through our faith in Him. John 3:16 (KJV) says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should nor perish, but have everlasting life.” In order for one to be saved, one has to believe in Jesus. But animals cannot exercise saving faith in Jesus.
Will I see my dog in heaven?
Another way to ask this question is, “Will there be animals in heaven?” Yes. God’s original creation has been subjected to degradation and decay through sin, but it will be restored as it was in the beginning. The apostle Paul wrote, “For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God” (Romans 8:20, 21, NKJV). Although our sins have destroyed ourselves and nature, God will restore both. Just as animals were part of God’s untainted, original creation, so they will be part of the world and life when He restores everything new—without the corruption of sin and death.
Isaiah 11:6, “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.” (This sounds as if we will have pets in heaven, does it not?)
Isaiah 11:7-9, “The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea”
Isaiah 65:25, “The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent’s meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.”
We must not insist that God orders things according to our desires or understanding. Perhaps God may allow our beloved pets to be with us in heaven. Or He may choose to create a new pet for you. We must be willing to allow God to order things as He sees best—and trust that we will be happy with the situation in heaven. God says, “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind” (Isaiah 65:17, NKJV).
We may not know all the details of what God is preparing for us in heaven, but we do know that it will be far beyond anything we can imagine. It’s in the Bible, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him” (1 Corinthians 2:9, NKJV).
The best advice is for us is to love our pets and enjoy them while they are here with us—and trust God in everything for the future. He sees and knows all, and nothing is too hard for Him to do. God knows how much we love our pets and how much they mean to us. The Bible doesn’t directly address whether our pets will be with us in heaven, but we do know that God loves us and wants us to be happy. The Bible says, “No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11, NKJV). We can trust God that heaven will be a place filled with everything necessary for our happiness.

Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.
And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.
The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word.
The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.
The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.
The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.
The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.
They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.
The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.
There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.
In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.
When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.
They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.
Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.
From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.
Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.
And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.
The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.
And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.
Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.
