is not an original force present at creation, there is no primary
principle representing evil. The Most High has never coexisted with a
consciousness that significantly influences his attitude. Doing evil is
an action that proceeds from free will,
it is the product of a choice that we manifest in words and deeds.
Here, we reject the pagan doctrine that evil on Earth emanates from the
gods or from a pre-existing divine force that has deteriorated in the
world and matter, diverting man from a natural purity. Neither has the
Creator instilled a weakness of his nature into man in his likeness,
but has given him a free spirit to create his future. The wise man
(homo sapiens) of Genesis is first of
all dust of the earth, that is, the fruit of the development and
perfection of nature in the hands of the One called I AM (Exodus 3:14-15), the God of
Moses and Jesus. He is perfectly righteous and good (1 John 4:8).
Deutéronomy 32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect, For all his ways are righteousness; A *God of faithfulness without deceit, Just and right is he.
If there is no evil in the
beginning, chaos, darkness, night, order, light and day are natural and unfinished conditions
of the heavens and the earth at the beginning of creation. The Eternal
works nature in its different states and manages to do something very good at the end of the first
chapter of the book of Genesis. If light comes out of darkness and life
comes out of chaos, evil inclination
will only appear later in the next episodes of the history of Man in
the symbolic garden of Eden. Indeed, the tree of the knowledge of good
and evil is the sign of responsibility in our lives and we must stop
saying that if God existed, the evil could not happen. Chaos
and life are before us, if we willfully disobey important principles of
the Creator and Father, it is not right to accuse him and become angry
with him because of misfortunes. The imperfections of nature should
also not be perceived as a presence of evil, man is intelligent to work
the imperfection (just like the Eternal with the darkness and chaos on
Earth) for the purpose of fulfillment. We can perfect the natural state
of things, avoid the natural disasters that have their reason to exist, then,
let us not build houses on the sand or next to a volcano.
The real evil in question is that which emanates from our ability to do good and evil.
Genesis 1:31 And God saw everything that he had made, and behold it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day.
Deutéronomy 30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil
Romans 5:13 for
until law sin was in the world; but sin is not put to account when
there is no law
Recognizing our imperfection is a renewal of our intelligence, a search for a positive, a transformation and evolution in creation. The child will learn by recognizing the words of his Father, the fault of the newborn child requires a correction in order to rectify and improve, the problem is above all when we get the uncircumcision of the heart, the persistence in error which is the strength of sin. In any case, once again, we cannot imagine an imperfect god who has transmitted his defects in creation to us, nor can we condemn demonic angelic spirits for the woes of the world. The theology developed on this site does not teach us the loss of a paradise lost to demonic forces and a battle of the gods of the Pantheons, the father's beliefs of atheism. We are responsible for our actions and the creation awaits the revelation of the sons of God, the men who are made similar to the Israeli Yeshua (Jesus), the glory of man in God: "Agora, Abba, glorify me with you of the glory that I had before the world was with you".
story of Jesus is not that of a god who came from heaven to fight
demonic creatures and save the world, Eternal did not send Superman.
Jesus is a man like us who will perfectly unite himself to the thought
of the Creator, the Father, according to the
of making man in his
image. The words of Christ awaken us to the spiritual life because he
reveals His Elohm and our Elohim, so that we may find our true
place in the eyes of the Most High, after the initial adam (first
mankind) has naturally fallen of his own accord into the garden (Eden) of culture. Here are Claude Tresmontant's
"And now glorify me...This text in no way teaches the pre-existence of the true Man united to the true God, contrary to what Origen of Alexandria and his disciples have imagined until today. This mythology of the pre-existence of Man united to God is rejected by Pope Leo, Letter to Julian, Bishop of Cos, 13 June 449: "But this, the Catholic intelligences and ears cannot bear... What, in the doctrine of Origen, has been rightly condemned... "this text, like the preceding 8, 58, means that Christ, in whom is realized the substantial union without mixture, without confusion, Council of Chalcedon, October 451 - from the newly created Man, to God the only uncreated, verus homo vero unitus is Deo -, it is he who is the finality of all creation, it is for him that all creation is on its way, it is towards him that it tends, like a woman who gives birth. He is the purpose, the completion, the fullness and the raison d'être of all creation. The physical Universe itself, from its earliest beginnings, tends towards him who is the alpha and omega of all creation. The glory of Christ is the goal and end of creation. This glory, which is the end of all creation, pre-exists the entire Universe, in the mind of God, since the whole history of creation tends towards this one end. And therefore Christ can speak of the glory that was his in the sight of God, or before the face of God, before the creation of the world."

repeat, the Bible does not want to teach us a doctrine of fallen gods
who destroy mankind, we are not in the middle of a battle between gods
of the Pantheon that existed before the creation of man. After this
short introduction on the origin of evil, let us look at the two
episodes advanced to falsely teach the fall of angels who became wicked
and rebellious in the Bible :
- In the second verse of the first chapter of Genesis, we can translate "And the earth became desolate and void" instead of "And the earth was desolate and void". According to one interpretation, angels would have rebelled against the Eternal long before the appearance of light, the decrease of water and the creation of plants, which is why the planet would have been becoming chaotic through their fault.
We can simply think that the Earth was chaotic and deserted because it naturally became like other planets, without the intervention of the spirit of the Eternal One who was going to move over the waters to give birth to creation through his wisdom and intelligence. In this case, the Earth became chaotic because it was not yet under the care of the Creator.
Psalms 107:35 He maketh the wilderness into a pool of water, and the dry land into water-springs
- The second place
mentioned to evoke the rebellion of the angel satan is in the story of
the Garden of Eden.
The serpent that tempted Eve would be an evil angel or an evil creature
that controls the serpent. Whether we take the text literally or
symbolically, we cannot imagine new protagonists to the story when
there is a search for someone responsible for the error committed: a
creature from heaven does not accuse Adam, who accuses Eve, who accuses
the serpent. Moreover, the text clearly writes that the serpent is a cunning animal of the
field that the Eternal had made,
so the animal was not an evil heavenly angel and we do not read any
case of possession. We are witnessing a dialogue between animal and
human thought, the serpent represents what is not spiritual and
celestial, on the contrary, it is very down-to-earth, cunning, lawless,
seeking its own interest by its instinct. The animal man who reasons
with the animal thought does
not manage to rise to the Eternal, to the spiritual life.
Genesis 3:1 And the serpent was more crafty than any animal of the field which Eternal Elohim had made. And it said to the woman, Is it even so, that God has said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
the symbolic book of Revelation, this ancient serpent reappears, it is
the animal system of thought that has fed on many men, so it appears more
powerful and fierce, in the form of a great red dragon. This chapter
does not teach that the evil angel satan is a dragon that has horns and
will fight with the help of his evil companions. The ancient serpent
that crawls in the dust and the flying dragon are both personifications
of adversity (from the Hebrew satan) in two different eras. Men,
including those in the religious and political spheres, are dragged
along by this system of disobedience to the creator and his creation
(destruction of the earth, wars, vials of wrath...). The woman
represents the believers who find themselves in the Desert to escape
him, the place is precious for the preservation and the birth of the
one who rises to God. My site is partly based on this image, looking
towards the Eternal in the assembly of the desert, camouflaged, coming
out of Babylon.
Revelation 12:1-6 And a great sign was seen in the heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; and being with child she cried, being in travail, and in pain to bring forth. And another sign was seen in the heaven: and behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems; the great red dragon stands before her, ready to devour her child and his tail draws the third part of the stars of the heaven; and he cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to bring forth, in order that when she brought forth he might devour her child. And she brought forth a male son, who shall shepherd all the nations with an iron rod; and her child was caught up to God and to his throne. when she is delivered she flees into the wilderness and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has there a place prepared of God, that they should nourish her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days.
Definition of satan and devil
Hebrew "satan" is a verb meaning "to oppose" and the Greek word
"diabolos", usually translated as devil, means "accuser". These two
words do not explicitly refer to a rebellious angel who has been
constantly trying to seduce men since the creation of the world. This supernatural and diabolical creature
does not exist, do you really think that a creature can say to
its own creator :
- "my creator, I'm going to destroy mankind to prove you wrong, even though you've already predicted that not all men will choose good and that I will perish with them". And then again:
- "I have lost against man Messiah Jesus, but I am truly a clever and stubborn wicked man against the creator, so I will make men sin again so that they may perish with me".
Exodus 32:32 And now, if thou wilt forgive their sin...but if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book that thou hast written.
Exodus 32:33 And Eternal said to Moses, Whoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book (Revelation 20:15)
be clear, we are not denying the
existence of "satan"
because we are questioning its definition and nature. The teaching of
Judaism and a small minority of Christians (independant Christians like us or the Christadelphian2 nomination) also does not accept the fables of the fallen angel
called "Lucifer" or the Muslim Jinn created by fire. Eternal is good
and the evil is linked to our evil deeds, we should not have a phobia of
invisible evil creatures walking around in our environment, especially
if we are righteous. Some churches have come to position believers at
the doors to cast out demons who would like to enter their prayer hall.
There have also been times when people have been drawn to faith through
fear! But the worst thing is to no longer make ourselves responsible
for abominable acts by claiming that an evil creature has come to
possess us entirely, as in the famous horror movie The Exorcist
directed by William Friedkin.
Isaiah 45:5 I am Eternal, and there is none else; there is no God beside me: I girded thee, and thou hast not known me;
Isaiah 45:6 that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the going down, that there is none beside me. I am Eternal, and there is none else;
Isaiah 45:7 forming the light and creating darkness, making peace and creating evil: I, YHWH, do all these things.
Then, who is
satan? Satan ("ha satan" in Hebrew)
is the adversary who opposes someone's will: a man, a messenger, a
group, an army, an ideology.
Satan does not escape the control of the Eternal, he is not able to fight tirelessly against the Almighty, as the false teaching of the book of Adam and the Koran with its jealous jinn. We also have the book of Enoch which tells of the sexual debauchery of celestial creatures with human women. Unfortunately, these explanations are the most commonly accepted in the Christian and Muslim world, as evidenced by the comments at the beginning of Genesis chapter 6. Jewish authors have mixed the pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible) with pagan commentaries and beliefs. If the errors of a text are too great, we can no longer consider it 'inspired'. Let us try to examine the scriptures as the Jews of Berea (Acts 17:11).
Numbers 22:22 And God's anger was kindled because he went; and the Angel of Eternal set himself in the way to withstand (satan) him. Now he was riding upon his ass...
And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the Eternal stood in the way for an adversary (satan) against him. Now he was riding upon his ass...
Matthew 16:21-23 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
1 King 22:19-23 And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the Eternal: I saw the Eternal sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left. And the Eternal said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the Eternal, and said, I will persuade him. And the Eternal said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Now therefore, behold, the Eternel hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the Eternel hath spoken evil concerning thee.
Bible uses many metaphors, personifications and symbols. Understanding
the literary style and context is essential to avoid being influenced
by false beliefs. In the above texts, have you noticed that satan is
not an evil being and that you have to interpret to believe this? The
chapters in Ezekiel and Isaiah are frequently advanced to prove the
existence of the bad angel satan, but closer examination shows that kings
and princes are symbolically described as heavenly things, stars. The
chapter of Ezekiel is a poem, a lament. Why not see in these chapters a
correspondence with the figure of Adam (Romans 5:14) who lived by the
precious stones and the tree of life? This king was great and powerful
as an angel from heaven.
- Ezechiel 28:11-19 Moreover the word of the Eternal came unto me, saying, Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord Eternal; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of god; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence , and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
- Isaiah 14:12-17 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
was a beautiful city and rich in commerce, the king spiritually
elevated himself as a god, forgetting the values and precepts of the
creator. The Eternal will severely correct the king who has corrupted
himself by reminding him that he is only a man. Metaphorically, we have
a god, a chief of angels, a shining star that falls from his glory,
from his pedestal! Eternal does not use a metaphor to make us literally
imagine the existence of a demonic archangel in a few lines of the
chapter, the context always refers to the same person, the king of
Tyre. Important figures are often compared to stars and vigilantes on
Earth, the king of Babylon in the Isaiah chapter was similar to a
"Lucifer" (shining star), an honorary title given to Yeshua (Jesus) in 2 Peter 1:19.
Genesis 37:8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
Genesis 37:8 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
Numbers 24:17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab...
Revelation 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
can be found everywhere in the Bible as long as we know that he is an
The spirit of adversity appears since creation in many forms and in
many situations. Satan is not an evil angel who falls several times
from heaven for different reasons : Genesis 1:2, Genesis 3:14:15, Genesis
6:1-3; 1 King 22, Isaiah 14, Ezekiel 28, Luke 10:18.
The myth of the flood that we mentioned earlier is also used to teach the fall of the angels, an evil army is said to have mated with women. In reality, Eternal regulates the order of the species, a man cannot give a progeny with an animal and a bull with a goat or a plant. The "sons of God" were men with the knowledge of the Eternal who knew the women of other peoples. They forsook the Eternal, the reasonable mind of the Creator, to indulge in abominations that Moses would put in writing in the law.
Genesis 6:1-5 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the Eternal said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
have seen that the Greek word for devil means "accuser", it is often
people and things that oppose (satan) to the Eternal to accuse (devil).
For example, the person who is condemned by the law for practicing evil
is in court, close to the figurative angel of death: "satan the
accuser". The terms "Satan" and "Devil" are therefore linked, as in Revelation 12:9 and 20:2.
Jesus-Messiah (Jesus the beloved and anointed of God) has the function of being the "Joker" for sinners. He is named "Advocate" in the Gospels, because he first shows the most beautiful face of the Father: grace, mercy, forgiveness, truth, love. The apostle Paul tells us that divine love forgives, it is this way that the Eternal One calls us through the envoys John and Jesus. Of course, we need a change in our inner being towards the Creator, a step of good conscience towards the Father which is expressed in the symbol of Baptism. The nation of Israel had in its law sanctions for transgressions, Christ is the gift that wipes off the slate of accusations (a just accusation is not evil in itself, the law is not evil) and defeats the accuser (those who want to use justice and this slate to condemn) of the court with a spirit that goes as far as "paying the price of his life to hope for the change of Man (sacrifice)". The day when evil and sin will no longer flourish in man, we will be able to say that the devil, the beast, the spirit of lies can no longer oppose and accuse us, they will be as if they were destroyed/tortured in the fire with the demons of our next chapter.
Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Demons and unclean spirit
satan and the devil generally refer to those who oppose someone, what
about the demons and unclean spirits of the scriptures? These are the
characteristics of the adversary (satan).
Demons are the vectors of adversity, the messengers (angels) of satan because of sin that emanate from evil. In our everyday language, they are the fruits of wickedness: adultery, lust, theft, idolatry, murder, lies. In the Bible, King Saul was troubled by such thoughts, he had an unclean spirit of jealousy (1 Samuel 16:14), he tried several times to kill David after being unfaithful to God as an anointed king. The god Mammon is also a demon, the idol of "Possession". Demons and unclean spirits are driven out by faith, repentance, fasting, and prayer that transform us.
Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
An other words, a demon is the evil inclination,
the producer of sin in the mind of an individual, we can also use the
terms "unclean spirits". The
demons in the Bible are:
- the false gods mentioned throughout the Hebrew texts, they are evil creations made by the mind and hand of man.
- our vices: murder, theft, idolatry...
- those who do not do the will of the Eternal and teach false beliefs: false teachings, false prophecies...
- the psychically and psychologically ill, whose origin is not always scientifically explained: dissociative personality disorders, schizophrenia...
- a personification or symbol of something or someone who opposes the creator in a parable.
- an angel or a powerful thought of bewilderment coming from the Eternal One who leads to error, especially on those who love lies and invoke spirits, the dead: illusion, appearance of a deceased person...
John 10:20 And many of them said, He (Jesus) hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
Matthew 11:18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.
2 Corinthians 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
9:32-33 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man
possessed with a devil (some of them did
not identify the illness in the same manner).
And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.
the Baptist had no disease and did no miracles, yet we see that he was
accused of having a demon, because of his unpleasant teaching. Jesus
was also accused in this way.
Paul was weakened by an angel of satan, he had to bear a disease or an injury coming from the hand of the Eternal, perhaps because of pride? I will then be told that if it is true that Jesus' contemporaries could express themselves in this way, it still does not prove that demons do not exist. The hypothesis is admissible and I will leave it to the readers to consider the other points that we will raise in this subject. Belief in demons has always haunted man, our dreams personify evil and we must interpret them well. The release of sick people locked up in psychiatric asylums would show us profiles that correspond to the unclean spirits and demons of the gospels. Today, our language is more rational and technical due to our scientific knowledge of diseases.
James 1:12-15 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Eternal hath promised to them that love him.
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
reader is also influenced by Greek thought and writings, remembering
that the words of Jesus were first spoken in Hebrew and Aramaic. The
translations and beliefs of the time have a significant impact on our
understanding of the text, some sentences are not always reproduced in
the accuracy of a prophet's speech. For example, no prophet announces
the projection of demons in a literal way, as seems to be true in the
Gospels (Isaiah 29:18-19; Isaiah
32:3-4; Isaiah 35:5-6; Luke 7:22).
We have other clues, it happens that the demon is directly identified
as a disease, it is the case of the Gospel of Matthew which speaks
clearly of a lunatic (Matthew 17:15; Mark 9:22; Luke 9:38-42).
If it is written that Jesus cast out demons from the sick, we can
understand it in the sense that sins and abnormalities of the body were
to be repaired. In neurology, it is explained that people heal
themselves by finding the origin of their illness; many doctors explain
this2. Reading the words of
Jesus Christ is a liberation, these words draw us towards the kingdom
Mark 1:34 And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him. (Matthew 12:16-21).
Micah 7:19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.
Exodus 4:11 And the Eternal said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the Eternal?
in our analysis, we cannot discard the intertextuality and
socio-cultural texture of a chapter in relation to the whole Bible,
the prophets and the writing reveal different grids and codes of
reading. The ten plagues of Egypt, the temptation of Jesus in the
desert and the miracles must be presented in a coherent integral vision
that must harmonize the apparent inconsistencies raised by our reading.
It is possible that the Ten Wounds of Egypt lasted approximately one
year, but we do not know, because we have a quick version of the facts
that were later transcribed in a few pages. The Temptation of Jesus in
the Desert is also a summary
of a piece of Jesus' life in the desert in a small passage of the
Bible. The Gospels also differ in the order of events and numbers,
because they are testimonies of different authors.
Psalms 78:1 Maschil of Asaph. Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
take the example of the temptation of Jeshua (Jesus) in the desert. In
this passage, we may have a dream that takes Jesus to a high mountain
(which does not exist) and he sees the glory that he could obtain by
accepting the mentality of the religious leaders and their false
teachings of the Jews (the Jewish satan). But Jesus' reaction to satan
will be healthy, he responds with the first commandment:
"Love the Eternal, before your glory". Let us also note that miracles are not reported exactly as it is written in our Greek texts, there are sometimes discrepancies in the order. Late additions may have embellished the text and revealed a different reading grid. For example, a man capable of destroying iron chains several times (Mark 5:4) is not possible, this addition allows another teaching: the demonic man represents Israel/Jacob chained by the Roman Empire because of his sins, who will deliver him from the iron bonds? Notice the name of the demons, they are called "Legion"! How can we not think of the Roman legions? Again, the conclusion we must draw is that listening and observing the words of the Eternal through the prophets and the Messiah will be a deliverance in our lives. The process of sanctification works miracles and removes the iron chains of sin to manifest the new man, the new creation in our evolution.
Leviticus 20:26 And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Eternal am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.
1Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
Hell, NDE and occultism
believers teach that the Creator is able to cast His own creature into
a place of eternal suffering. Wouldn't it be better to create nothing
than to know in advance that there is a horrible condemnation for
certain creatures? The creator is not a sadistic god, this kind
of eternal punishment is too severe and disproportionate on the scale
of judgment. We pay the price for our wickedness, but far be it from us
to teach eternal suffering in a fire, no matter how guilty we may be.
This false doctrine only gives a bad image of the Creator Father. In
the Bible, Hades and Gehenna are not places where the dead live, so
don't expect to meet a demonic angel pointing his pitchfork at you.
Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.
lake of fire in the Bible is like a chimney fire fuelled by logs, the
pieces of wood would be the wicked Man who burns himself, they do not
burn eternally in a fire that does not go out. We will try to
demonstrate that the symbol of eternal fire represents eternal death.
Jesus himself says that those who do not believe will perish, it is
good that they do not continue to live on Earth or in another
dimension. Ruin, punishment, sorrow and eternal torment are not endless
pains in hell, they are expressions that express judgment and defeat.
The two cities Sodom and Gomorrah that have suffered eternal pain or
destruction, let us not imagine them crying and burning continuously
with their inhabitants somewhere.
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
2Thessalonians 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Hebrew texts speak of "sheol" to refer to hell or hades, a place where
those who no longer live, their bodies have turned to dust in the
grave. While Gehenna or the lake of fire is reminiscent of the Valley
of Hinnon (Jeremiah 7:31),
a place where worms constantly appeared to feed on the rubbish. The
Eternal is just, he weighs our works; those who have willingly rejected
the Eternal will not suffer eternally, but they reap the fruits of
their works: not having their name written in the symbolic book of
life. The first and last book of the Bible contains many symbols, let
us be careful in our interpretations, understanding all the verses
literally is clearly an error to be avoided in order not to develop
beliefs contrary to the thought of the Most High (Deuteronomy 30:19).
Jesus spoke in parables, the images he gives us must be understood
correctly. The idea to remember is that separation from the Creator
Father because of evil is a misfortune.
Matthew 5:27-29 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
20:11-15 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from
whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no
place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
what about eminent death experience (EMI) testimonies? Here we enter an
alternative state of consciousness, the brain will react to strong
sensations that will mark the person during his or her life. We have a
mixture of the collective unconscious of dreams and a "consciousness
that becomes aware" of reality, more precisely of the importance of
life on a metaphysical level. Experience and culture will show
different visualizations of the experience depending on the person, but
we generally find the same projection, reflection and meaning are
relatively the same. In Europe, people evoke a tunnel that leads to a
soothing light, sometimes they observe or feel beings. The tunnel is
the sign of the spiritual path that man has to travel, the light at the
end of the tunnel is the positive goal to be achieved during life.
Beings can be people in our lives or known people who have accompanied
us in our ideas. Those who have experienced an IME often come out of it
upset because the experience naturally brings up the importance of spirituality in our lives.
We should not remain stuck on the images we have experienced, but move
forward in search of the good and the light of the Intelligent One who
calls all things to himself. For the small minority who have seen hell,
perhaps they should seek a teaching that revolves around the chains
they may have worn in their lives. We must also be careful because
there are false testimonies and false interpretations, voluntary and
involuntary, leading to false beliefs.
Our teaching and philosophy must be built on knowledge of scientific reality and logical reasoning.
Jeremiah 23:29 Am I a God at hand, saith the Eternel, and not a God afar off?
24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Eternal. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Eternal.
25 I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.
26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;
27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Eternal.
29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Eternal; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?
30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Eternal, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
Let's end this chapter by mentioning
sorcerers, healers and shamans. We can classify them in three groups:
- charlatans who can make you believe in things they themselves don't believe, they have no remorse for lying to you, they are greedy and notorious, Mammon is their god. Some may search for the slightest clue about you in order to know you better (through social networks for example) and boast of their divinatory capacity. Documentaries have been made on this fact.
- Specialists of the nature who mix their experiences and knowledge with beliefs (spiritism...). It is better to consult a doctor who relies on his knowledge of homeopathy, without telling you about his beliefs, than to visit a healer who offers you plants accompanied by useless magical rites that take you away from the Creator.
- People who have a natural sensitivity with the energy and waves that circulate around us, they are still not superhuman powers. For example, a small minority of people isolate themselves in nature to escape the waves. Others claim to soothe burns, whether they are believers or not. A Christian should not rush to judge and condemn a person.
Luc 8:43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
Colossians 4:14 Luke, the beloved physician, and Demas, greet you.
I'll leave three pieces of advice that I
think are indispensable:
- if it is the Eternal who really wants to heal you, he would do it directly, freely and not halfway.
- check the person's belief, does he explain to you that he has the supernatural power to heal by means of
- the bible forbids magic, summoning the dead, witchcraft and all divination games.
Eternal can send his angel or a confusing power to keep the person believing in what his conscience wants to believe.
2 Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Deuteronomy 13:1 If there arise among you a
prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Eternal your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Eternal your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
When thou art come into the land which the Eternal thy God giveth thee,
thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Eternal: and because of these abominations the Eternal thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Deuteronomy 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Eternal, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Eternal hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Summary table and
large majority of believers imagine that angels would have been
rebelled at the very beginning of creation. The first hypothesis, the
least known, can be found in verse 2 of the first book of Genesis: "the
gap theory, a rebellion in heaven". The refutation is simple, the
author did not forget to write a line or two about this event which
should be important, however, the text simply indicates that the planet
went through a chaotic and desert stage, a natural process that occurs
on other planets. The spirit of Eternal has covered the Earth to signal
that he will take care of it by bringing the indispensable elements for
The symbol of the serpent had been explained in 2014 in the last paragraph of the creation theme. To rephrase, the serpent is not an evil angel in the shape of a beast of the field, on the contrary, the text specifies that it is a cunning animal that G.od made. If Adam represents the human race (several men), the serpent also represents the race of the serpent, thus, the symbolic book of Genesis explains by divine coincidence a scientific fact: the legs of this reptile have considerably diminished in time through evolution. The human Anatomy shows that the brain is coiled up in the head, if we reason like the serpent, we lower ourselves to the animal and do not rise from the dust unto the creator. It is possible that the childbirth pain has increased too, it is one of the biggest natural pains for women.
sons of God are the men who knew and walked with the Eternal. The word
"nephilim" translated as "giants" are warriors similar to the man
this passage, demons are gods, idols of wood and stone that do not live
(Deuteronomy 28:64). We
This sentence explains that men have had evil thoughts. There are no wicked demonic creatures that fight against the creator and feel strong against him. It is frequent that the Eternal asks His army to seduce the unjust.
The Eternal sends evil spirits; these are not cases of possessions, but evil thoughts received in our minds by unfaithfulness. These evil thoughts torment man and can make him wicked (1 Samuel 18:10-11). Saul, who was responsible for his actions, was dominated by evil thoughts.
How many have invoked the spirits by holding hands around a table? This is a grave transgression of the commandments, Eternal does not want us to take care of this world. In the text, we may have the impression that the woman is shouting because she guessed that King Saul was her interlocutor, she may have suspected it by the fact that he had already been asked to see the prophet Samuel. I rather believe that her cry of surprise is linked to the miraculous appearance of a god (a vision coming from the Eternal) because in reality, she is unable to show prophets like Moses or Samuel.She understood that the Eternal was present with his anointed one (Saul) and that it might have been a trap, since the king had forbidden the practice. Once again, it is not an evil angel fighting against God who brings an image of Samuel.
Satan is going to oppose Israel and the king through the idea of making a census. An anger (2 Samuel 24:1) emanates from the Eternal, the people probably did something wrong so that the Eternal would begin to get annoyed and excite David to think this way. An evil angel calling himself satan is not the source of temptation, nor influence the desire to count. The people have first angered the Eternal who will oppose (satan) Israel and its king by exciting David to make a mistake.
Job chapter 1 and 2
the beginning of this book, the terrible and powerful angel satan of
religions walks quietly before presenting himself kindly before the
Almighty and his angels. How can we still defend a literal reading of
the text if the wicked satan has caused the destruction of man and the
Earth? And why would his demonic comrades be chained in Greek Tartarus
(a believer's interpretation) while he flies peacefully in the clouds?
Why not see it more logically as a personification of evil and a
spiritual teaching for the introduction to the book of Job?
Instead of seeing a specific demonic angel behind the fall of a great king, the metaphors appropriate to this man are part of the literary style of the Hebrew Bible texts. Read chapter II of this topic.
army from above that will be punished is not a band of wicked people
living somewhere high up in the sky. This is the beliefs and gods led by the false
priests of Israel and the Gentiles, they are located in the spheres
from above because they care for and dominate the spirituality of the
people and the king.
Isaiah 66:24 (Mark 9:44-49)
Fire and worms represent a final, constant destruction, with no return to life. It is not eternal suffering. In a garbage dump, we can find an ongoing presence of certain elements, if we throw in a pit the dead of a great war or disease (World wars, coronavirus, plague...), we could constantly see worms there. Let us note that the text says that the righteous observe corpses, they are therefore dead people, nothing moves continuously because of a suffering committed by worms that feed! The man has nothing immortal in him by nature, including the human messiah (1 Timothy 6:16, Matthew 10:28, Luke 23:46, and Hebrews 5:7). Eternel gives life or death, we do not live forever in the world of the dead (John 3:15; Job 24:20). Worms is the ignominy of the wicked for all times. The prophet Isaiah may have been thinking of the thousands of Assyrians consumed by death. At every worship, Sabbath and new moon, the memory of victory over the wicked came to mind through the places, the names of the dead leaders...
Tyre was as rich and beautiful as the garden of the gods, why see there an archangel named satan, the Eternal overthrows the great ones who become unjust and rise up to the stars of the sky to the point of taking themselves for gods? Is it not man (adam) who wanted to be "god" in the garden of God, without listening to the voice of Elohim ?
Unclean spirits are not invisible creatures that possess men, but men with unclean spirits (sorcerers, murderers, sick people...).
man had a mental illness (schizophrenia...) and had already come across
or heard about Jesus (verse 34). Healing is described as the coming out
of a demon (verse 35), this is the language and explanation of the
time. This year, I came across a person who was damaging cars in a
building parking lot, she was known by the locals who thought she was
crazy. When I approached this person to reason with her, she shouted at
me and ran away. The next morning, I learned that the person had come
back with a fire extinguisher in his hand and had been taken care of by
a medical team. A week later, this person was sitting quietly on a
bench in the parking
lot and she had recognized me, she tried to approach me
kindly with a question that didn't really make sense to me. Maybe she
medication. I think that's the kind of case that we find in the text,
it is not a bad ghost in him. It is possible to heal psychic illnesses,
perhaps the event recounted
is a summary of all the good that Jesus brought through healings and
Unquestionably, John the Baptist had no reason to be called "demon", but his teaching was considered "demonic madness". The same accusation is made against Jesus (John 10:20). We also have the case of Judas (Luke 22:3) and Peter (Mark 8:33) who opposed (satan) the will of the Eternal.
the demonic people did not have superhuman strength to destroy real
iron chains, we have given a symbolic meaning to this verse in chapter
III of our theme. Pigs were present in certain lands
because of the presence of the Romans and the nations. It is surprising
that demons ask to go into the bodies of unclean animals, whereas
believers imagine them walking around waiting to possess someone. It is
quite possible that this part with the hains is an additional teaching to explain
that the country and men were in the impurity (pig, unclean animal
according to the law). The falling of the demons in the pigs that fall
off the cliff into the water represents the purification of sins
through water baptism (verse 33). I also do not exclude the possibility
that the pigs literally threw themselves off the cliff, without demons inside the pigs.
Satan's adversary falls from heaven because sins (demons) are taken away by faith in the Eternal and Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:14). The sacred breath (holy spirit) brings a spiritual recovery of Man, satan and his envoys fall from the spiritual sphere (Ephesians 6:12). The evil that destroys thus loses its power, it is chained by those who become the sons of God in the image of the son.
child is not possessed by a demonic creature at the beginning of its
birth (Mark 9:21)! It is
The unclean spirit
We have a strong man similar to the demonic man who was chained in the desert by Jesus, the man is has a personality disorder such as schizophrenia. The Jews wanted to stand out as the woman who had the spirit of a python to guess the futur in Acts 16:16 and they put on a show with exorcisms, as is still happening in some Christian churches. Again, the sick man had probably heard about Jesus and Paul, perhaps two years before (Acts 19:10-13). The unclean spirit of this man asks the Jews who they are because they have no authority, they do not have the behavior and word of Jesus and Paul.
1 Corinthians 6:3
We will judge the angel
There is no evidence that this is a judgment on bad creatures fallen from the sky. The context evokes judgments for matters of daily life (verse 1).
If in this life Christians are already going to court to be judged by unbelievers, how can they judge in the world to come? Shame on them (verse 5)!
We become like the angels (Luke 20:34-36), even superior (Hebrews chapter 1 and 2 in its entirety) in union with the Messiah. In anticipation, the brethren of the Messiah are spiritually placed "on high in the heavenly places" (Ephesians 2:6), above other ministries, both human and angelic (1 Peter 1:12; Hebrews 2:2, Galatians 3:19). Therefore, man united with Christ obtains authority (Matthew 19:28), capable of solving the problems in the world to come among the angels. In addition, you can also read my commentary on the table for 2 Peter 2:4, we refute the various stories of fallen angels. Paul sought to sublimate the true identity of the Church.
2 Corinthians 4:4
The god of this century is not alive, he's not a demonic angel. We have other personifications, wealth with the god Mammon (Matthew 6:24) and procreation with the goddess Diana (Acts 17:29) whom the world worships. The intelligence of the Jews (the abode of the Jews in Revelation 2:9) and the Romans was blinded by the god of this world, the lie that kills the words of Christ and His companions. We must resist the devil (James 4:7, 1 Peter 5:8, 1 Thessalonians 2:15-17), the Darby Bible speaks of wickedness as one man: 1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the wicked one.
The gospel from an angel
Either the Eternal sends His angel to deceive, or a man will lie and make us believe that he has communicated with an angel from heaven (the Koran and the angel Gabriel or 1King 13:18). There is not an army of evil and rebellious angels who deceive men when they wish to do so with another gospel (Deuteronomy 13:1-3).
must fight against the religious system and false beliefs that
influence and manipulate us (Ephesians
2:6, Ephesians 3:10).
This is how the fight is spiritual, that is, up in the heavenly places.
The Greek word "epouranios" (above heaven) refers to spiritual
authorities, so let us not imagine, once again, demonic creatures in
Defeat him that had the power of the death, the Devil
In this verse, the Messiah must be human in nature (flesh and blood) to defeat "the devil". A God or an angel who transforms himself into a human being could not really come out victorious, it would no longer be the biblical story to transform natural adam into victorious adam. The man Jesus, therefore, had to be by nature a descendant of Adam.
The serpent in the book of Genesis (Genesis 3:1, Revelation 20:2) will lose to the accomplished man who united himself to God, the one who possesses the divine mind (the holy spirit) and the law in his heart. The animal thought (the devil/snake in the first line of the picture) accused us before G.od by writing on a slate the righteous penalties (Colossians 2:14) for a transgression of the Holy Law. Jesus defeats the devil, i.e. the serpent, the personification of evil thinking, the spirit of error.
Romans 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be defeats, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
to what is affirmed by some believers, the word 'spirit' frequently refers
to men, our spirituality is guarded or memorized by the Eternal for
or death (Acts 7:59, Luke 23:46,
Luke 1:47...). In this small
passage, Peter reminds us of Man's disobedience (Genesis 6:3). Enoch
and Noah never preached to fallen angels (heavenly creatures), but to
men! It was in a similar situation and spirit that Noah announced
(1Peter 1:10-11) the life in
God before destruction. In this text, Peter
compares the men of Genesis with the men of his time (verse 21), he is
not going to compare demonic creatures of heaven with men! The prison
symbolizes the dead man on the spiritual level who is heading towards
judgment (Revelation 20 11:15).
The book of Enoch contains a Jewish fable that prevents us from
understanding the beginning of chapter six of Genesis.
1 Peter 5:8
The adversary, the devil
We must identify who the adversary is, the disciple Judas was a devil because of his lack of faith and betrayal (John 6:70). This probably refers to the Jews and Romans in general who had rejected for a long time the faith of Yeshua, they roamed around the Christians like a lion and had to be "firm in the faith" (verse 9).
2 Peter 2:4
word "angel" means "messenger," and it can refer to a man or a prophet
such as John or Jesus (Malachi
3:1, Matthew 11:10).
These are not necessarily creatures from heaven. At the beginning of
the chapter, Peter refers to false prophets among the people (verses
1-3), and he will continue talking about men until verse 11.
are not creatures that forsake their own kind, but men who forsake the
power and divine authority (Luke
12:11) of the Eternal.
Michael is an angelic representation of the "people of God" in heaven, this angel has a name that means: "who is like God?". We know that the Messiah and the house of David are like God (Zechariah 12:8), so this is the battle between those who are like God and Satan, the false religious system and its rulers.
We believe in the adversary, the satan, but our définition is very
différente of the popular belief than a personal celestrial creature
who rebelled against the Creator in the days of old.
