DEFINITELY a copycat

 


2 Timothy 3:5

King James Version

5 Having a form of godliness, 

but denying the power thereof: 

from such turn away.


I've been thinking about it for sometime.

Now, I won't pretend to have unraveled the mysteries of God, or of His fallen angel, but I will present to you my observations -- based on Scripture -- of how the deceiver (including the false prophet) seems to have copied the Lord.

Or, at least, tries to copy the Lord.

There seems to be a pattern.

Whatever the deceiver's intentions are, it's definitely not to honor the Lord.

He's doing the REVERSE, of all the Lord is.

Surely to spite?

Out of jealousy?

Out of malice?

In mockery?

Delusion?

And yes, to destroy man.

I will cite the instances, and the verses that pertain to the Lord's way, in contrast to the enemy's way.

Surely, the Holy Spirit of God called my attention to these.


MARK on the HAND and FOREHEAD.

The Lord's seal.

Exodus 13:9-10

King James Version

9 And it shall be for a sign unto thee 

upon thine hand, 

and for a memorial between thine eyes, 

that the Lord's law may be in thy mouth: 

for with a strong hand hath the Lord brought thee 

out of Egypt.

10 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance 

in his season from year to year.


Revelation 7:3-4

King James Version

3 Saying, 

Hurt not the earth, 

neither the sea, 

nor the trees, 

till we have sealed the servants of our God 

in their foreheads.

4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: 

and there were sealed 

an hundred and forty and four thousand 

of all the tribes of the children of Israel.


Revelation 9:3-4

King James Version

3 And there came out of the smoke 

locusts upon the earth

and unto them was given power, 

as the scorpions of the earth have power.

4 And it was commanded them 

that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, 

neither any green thing, 

neither any tree; 

but only those men 

which have not the seal of God 

in their foreheads.


The false prophet's mark.

Revelation 13:16-17

King James Version

16 And he causeth all, 

both small and great, 

rich and poor, 

free and bond, 

to receive a mark in their right hand, 

or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, 

save he that had the mark, 

or the name of the beast, 

or the number of his name.



KNOWLEDGE of SCRIPTURE.

Jesus respects the law.

Matthew 4:7

King James Version

7 Jesus said unto him

It is written again, 

Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.


The deceiver perverts the law.

Matthew 4:5-6

King James Version

5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, 

and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

6 And saith unto him, 

If thou be the Son of God, 

cast thyself down: 

for it is written, 

He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: 

and in their hands they shall bear thee up, 

lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.



THRONE of GOD.

The true throne of God.

Isaiah 6:1-4

King James Version

6 In the year that king Uzziah died 

I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, 

high and lifted up, 

and his train filled the temple.

2 Above it stood the seraphims: 

each one had six wings; 

with twain he covered his face, 

and with twain he covered his feet, 

and with twain he did fly.

3 And one cried unto another, 

and said, 

Holy, holy, holy, 

is the Lord of hosts: 

the whole earth is full of his glory.

4 And the posts of the door moved 

at the voice of him that cried, 

and the house was filled with smoke.


Revelation 4:1-2

King James Version

4 After this I looked, 

and, 

behold, 

a door was opened in heaven

and the first voice which I heard 

was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; 

which said, 

Come up hither, 

and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

2 And immediately I was in the spirit:

 and, behold, 

a throne was set in heaven, 

and one sat on the throne.


Revelation 4:9-11

King James Version

9 And when those beasts give glory and honour 

and thanks to him that sat on the throne, 

who liveth for ever and ever,

10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him 

that sat on the throne, 

and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, 

and cast their crowns before the throne, 

saying,

11 Thou art worthy, 

O Lord, 

to receive glory and honour and power: 

for thou hast created all things, 

and for thy pleasure they are and were created.


Pretender to the throne.

Isaiah 14:12-14

King James Version

12 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!

13 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:



The MOST HIGH.

The true God.

Psalm 47:2

King James Version

2 For the Lord most high is terrible; 

he is a great King over all the earth.


The jealous one.

Isaiah 14:14

King James Version

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; 

I will be like the most High.



PROPHET*.

John the Baptist.

Luke 1:14-17

King James Version

14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; 

and many shall rejoice at his birth.

15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, 

and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; 

and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, 

even from his mother's womb.

16 And many of the children of Israel 

shall he turn to the Lord their God.

17 And he shall go before him 

in the spirit and power of Elias, 

to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, 

and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; 

to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.


False prophet.

Revelation 13:11-15

King James Version

11 And I beheld another beast coming up 

out of the earth; 

and he had two horns like a lamb, 

and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power 

of the first beast before him, 

and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein 

to worship the first beast

whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, 

so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth 

in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth 

by the means of those miracles which he had power to do 

in the sight of the beast; 

saying to them that dwell on the earth, 

that they should make an image to the beast

which had the wound by a sword, 

and did live.

15 And he had power to give life 

unto the image of the beast, 

that the image of the beast should both speak, 

and cause that as many 

as would not worship the image of the beast 

should be killed.


*John the Baptist prepared the way for CHRIST.

The false prophet caused the earth to worship the beast -- the antichrist.
