Exposing Satan’s Plans Against You
Everything in this world breaks down and degenerates in time. Hot coffee turns cold, bodies get older and break down through time.
We live in a fallen world – fallen what what God created.
God now does not have full control over everything that happens here. He gave authority to man. Man was given dominion over the earth, but man gave it to the devil. Enter sickness, disease, death, pain, suffering.
Because you are made in God’s image – Satan hates you.
You want to see God in full control? Go to heaven – no hospitals, no prisons, no funeral homes.
Does God have an answer for a fallen world? Yes.
“And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening, life-giving Spirit. But is was not the spiritual life which came first, but the physical and then the spiritual.
The first man is of the earth, earthly minded; the second man is the Lord from heaven. Now those who are made of the dust are like him who was first made of the dust (earthly minded); and as is the Man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven (heavenly minded).” I Cor. 15:45-48 KJV/AMP
Board write out:
First Adam Last Adam
Had human nature Had Heavenly nature (God’s)
From earth From heaven
Made a living soul Living Spirit
Earthly minded Heavenly minded
When Adam fell (sinned) all of creation fell with him. Animals for the first time started eating animals, snakes bite people.
When Jesus comes back to earth

When Jesus comes back to earth to rule and is in charge the world will be different.
Between Gen. 1:1 and verse 2 a lot of time must have elapsed.
Gen. 1:1 In the beg G created h and e.
Gen. 1:2 The earth was without form and void (an empty waste) . . .
Why was it an empty wasteland? Something happened between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2.
Notice what God said to man after He created them.
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply, and REPLENISH THE EARTH, and subdue it . . .” Gen. 1:28
ill. If I ask you to replenish my coffee cup what am I asking? To re-fill it again. This hints that the earth was already filled with something or someone and God wants man to replenish it. What could it have been?
Angels: Various types
We know God created the angels, which are spirit beings that have celestial bodies.
Seraphim – Isaiah 6 perform priestly duties around God’s throne.
Arch Angels – Michael guards Israel (Daniel). Gabriel brings Good news (gospel) announces Jesus’ birth. Arch Angels are chief or leader angels.
Cherubs Cheribim is plural - are angels known for their power and beauty. Not fat naked babies. Guarded Eden after man removed. Ezekiel chapter 1. They move at speed of light and have 4 faces: Lion, ox, man, eagle. Some say 4 gospels are Mathew (Lion gospel), Mark (ox), Luke (man), John (eagle or heaven).
- They are guardians of God’s throne. God resided in Eden. They guarded Eden by removing Adam and Eve and standing guard not to re-enter.
Ezekiel prophesied to a earthly King of city of Tyre who was a personification of evil like Satan. In fact God describes Satan in this prophecy.
“You are full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering. Every precious stone was thy covering, the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes.
. You were the anointed cherub that covers. . . You were on the mountain of God. You were perfect in your ways until iniquity was found in you. Your heart was proud and lifted up because of your beauty . . . I cast you to the ground.” Ezekiel 28:12-17
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! . . .
For thou has said in thy heart

Rev. 12:4 says 1/3rd angels fell with Satan.
Satan was a high ranking angel named Lucifer in heaven that covered something. Law of first mention reveals cherubs guarded entrance to Eden. Guarding what? Maybe God’s throne? His kingdom righteousness? WE don’t know.
We know Moses told by God to make an ark with a mercy seat and two cherub angels on top.
Exodus 25:19-20 KJV.
Pic of mercy seat and ark
Inside this ark was the ten commandments written in stone.
God gave ten commandments twice!
First time given to Moses who in righteous anger threw down tablets and broke them when saw people in idolatry.
Second time God gave Moses ten commandments in Deuteronomy 10:1-4. This time put them in the ark under the mercy seat.
Once a year on Yom Kippur the HP sprinkles blood on mercy seat. Why did God tell Moses to put the law under the mercy seat?
He is saying to us, “I don’t want to see the law that men broke. I want to see the blood and have mercy.” Cherubim are angels that cover the mercy seat with the blood is sprinkled.
