A Study of the End Times - Revelation PM
# 11 - The Four Horsemen 04/29/2018
From the moment that satan rebelled against God, he has tried to have complete rule on earth. Most of mankind followed him, whether through pride like Cain, carnality like Balaam, false religion like Nimrod, or outright rebellion like Korah, man as a whole have rejected God and fell right into satan’s plan.
But there has always been a sting in satan’s side, a fly in the ointment. In spite of his and his demon’s almost total control of the earth, there are always a few that follow God. Satan hates them and longs for the opportunity to rid the earth of the righteous.
Satan hates everything that belongs to God. He hated the Jews, he hates Christians and the Bible. He’s wanted total control from the beginning, but as long as there was a O.T. prophet warning of judgment from God or a N.T. preacher the Gospel or a grandma that taught her grandkids the Bible or a parent who tries to raise their kids to serve the Lord or some church that keeps preaching the Gospel, it drives him mad.
Satan has from the beginning wanted to be like God and worshipped like God. Isaiah 14:12-23.
So here we are in Revelation chapter six. The church has been called home, the host of guardian angels escorting us up through the ranks of demons that have been restrained by our presence. And with our departure, for a brief time, there is not a single believer on earth. No one who knows the Bible, no one is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, no one who knows the Lord.
