90 - Imposter

Do you know what an imposter is? You know, someone who claims he's somebody he isn't, someone who masquerades as someone else, someone who lies about his identity claiming to be someone else? Just so we are clear on our terms, here is a dictionary definition of imposter:

Noun: One that assumes a false identity for the purpose of deception.

This is fascinating when we consider it in light of Lucifer the devil who got his arse kicked out of heaven.

Lucifer is not God. Lucifer is a created being, just like men, and we should think of him more in terms of being merely a human upgrade. He has intellect, he has emotion, he has personality, he has character, and he has ambition, just like men. When he was created, he was also given freedom of will, the freedom to choose, just like men. He chose disobedience and was consequently kicked out the backdoor of heaven among the dustbins.

Revelation 12:9
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Lucifer, being the seductive, beguiling, deceptive, lying, sneaky bastard type, tricked man out of the lordship of the earth and became the god of this world. Man gave Lucifer that authority, and he has the right to govern the world as he pleases. He really is the god of this world. Man gave him that authority and right back in Genesis. We see this also in Luke.

Luke 4:5-7
And the devil, taking him [Jesus Christ] up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered [given] unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.

If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.

I have no problem with this, none whatsoever. The devil is the god of this world. His position is legal, it's in order, and he has the right to govern as he pleases. The power and glory of the world is his to give to whoever he likes. Man gave that privilege to him back in Genesis. I have no problem with this at all.

However, I do have an issue with how he masquerades as my father. God is my father, I am his son, and I have issues with how Lucifer masquerades as my father when he is no such thing. He is just an angel who got his arse booted out of heaven. He is not my God, he is not my father, and he is certainly not my family. When he therefore claims to be God, and hides behind religious assholes who carry bibles, he is assuming a false identity for the purpose of deception. He is an imposter.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Now remember, Lucifer was the angel of light. He was perfect in beauty, he was full of wisdom, and he was perfect in all his ways.

Ezekiel 28:12-15
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; 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.

Have you any idea what the devil must have been like before his fall? Perfect in beauty? Full of wisdom? Perfect in all his ways? God does not use these words lightly in his word. Lucifer was perfect in beauty, he was full of wisdom, and he was perfect in all his ways from the day he was created. Can you imagine what it must have been like to be in his presence back then?

Well, I've news for you. Lucifer is still the devil.

As Lucifer, the angel of light, he knows how to move the hearts of men. He knows how to inspire. He knows how to impress. He knows how to show off in front of men and get their worship. He knows how to run families so men feel at home with him. He knows how to seduce men's hearts with the love of money. He knows all this because before his fall he was perfect in beauty, full of wisdom, and perfect in all his ways.

While Lucifer was thinking through his schemes for the earth before he was kicked out of heaven, he wasn't evil. He was perfect in beauty, full of wisdom, and perfect in all his ways. He really did believe he could run a better world than God. He really did believe he could give man a better life than God. He still does.

Content with food and clothing? He saw so much more than that. He envisioned wealth, mesmerising entertainment, castles, yachts and fast cars. He would be so generous, men would love him and worship him. There was so much more potential to life than simply having needs met and being content with paradise.

Lucifer wasn't evil while he thought all this stuff through. He was the angel of light, perfect in beauty, full of wisdom, and perfect in all his ways. The problem was he thought he knew better than God. Sounds just like a man, doesn't he? Look at him now. A liar, a thief and a murderer. Look at what he did to the Lord Jesus Christ.

It must really eat away at his heart when he realises what he has lost. No wonder he hates us. He knows what we have in Christ Jesus as children of the living God. He knows a thousand years of imprisonment followed by the lake of fire is the only future he has. He knows we have eternal life coming to us. His hatred for us is indescribable.

Revelation 12:17
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Well, I have some good news for God's people. We have more in Christ Jesus than Lucifer lost when he fell. Lucifer is just an angel, a created being, we are children of the living God. We are not just created beings, we are God's children by birth.

1 John 3:1,2
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

If God be for us, who can be against us? We need not be afraid of the world. Nor need we be afraid of death. Greater is he that is in us than he that is the world. God is on our side. Not even death can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Now do you begin to understand what God meant when he told us in Romans that we are more than conquerors through him who loved us? It's time to rise up as children of the living God, believe his word and walk by the spirit of the Christ in us.

Romans 8:14-19
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer [endure] with him, that we may be also glorified together.

For I reckon that the sufferings [the stuff we have to endure] of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

For the earnest expectation of the creature [creation] waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

With all this in mind, I have absolutely no issues whatsoever with the devil being the god of this world. I'm not exactly happy about it, but man gave him that authority and position back in Genesis so it's okay with me. I have no issues with him being a lying, thieving, murdering cunt either. He can be whoever he wants to be. He is the god of this world, after all, and he can run his world anyway he likes. I have no issues with men being groomed for a life of service to him through freemasonry, jesuitism, religion, bribery, money and power. The power and the glory of the world is his, it was given to him, and he can give it to whoever he likes. I have no issues with any of that.

However, God is my father, and the bible is my father's work. The bible is my father's word, and I do have issues with the devil hiding behind my father's work and masquerading as my father. The devil did not write the bible, he is not God, and he is certainly not my family. If he is such a wonderful god, he should quit hiding behind the bible in his shithole cathedrals pretending to be someone he isn't. He should quit masquerading as my father, pretending to teach the bible, deceiving men with what isn't his to deceive with. The world may be his, but the bible is not, and he has no rights to it. He may be the god of this world, but that doesn't give him any right to impersonate my father and portray himself as the true God.

If he is such a wonderful god, if he still believes he's so perfect in beauty, so full of wisdom, and so perfect in all his ways, he should come out of the shadows and show the world who he really is. Perfect in beauty? Full of wisdom? Perfect in all his ways? Whatever happened to all that? He can shove his shithole world.

Folks, the devil is just a disobedient impudent angel who got his arse kicked out of heaven. He is not God, he is an imposter. We are children of the living God, and greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world. Either God's word is true or it isn't. Make up your minds.

Didn't Jesus Christ do a damn good job of redeeming us. Thank you Lord.

1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
