The American Wisdom Series

Presents the Tell it like it is! series of studies:

This is Pamphlet #9054,

The real But Satan comes to earth first and he (Satan) will claim he is God.
Will you endure until the end (wait) for the real Christ, or will He (Jesus) find you worshiping Satan when He
(Jesus) returns!
Do you know how to tell the difference?
Are you sure!

Caution to students of God;s Word - Please remember two things when using our American Wisdom Series studies:
#1. Our commentary is not God's Word. It is only our interpretation or understanding of "His Word" and even though we try our best to be accurate we may or may not be correct. #2. The King James translation, or any other translation, of the original Hebrew text has some words which were given different translations at different places probably because of the interpreters preconceived ideas of what they think God meant to say. For example: According to the notes in the "Drake's Annotated Reference Bible" the Hebrew word hayah in the KJV is Trans. (became) 67 times, (becamest or came to pass) 505 times, (become) 66 times, and (come to pass) 131 times, but for some reason in Genesis 1:2 it is translated (was)! That sure changes the way a person perceives the original creation of the earth, doesn't it?  Gen. 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, ... Having said that, let us continue with our "studies". These studies contain knowledge, we believe, you must have to fully and accurately unlock and understand the Word of God. 
May the Holy Spirit be your only guiding light. Sincerely, John Rhine

Revelation 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:13-14
[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. [14] He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Without the leading by the Holy Spirit, there is no understanding of the truths, for all the truth of the Scriptures are revealed to us by God's Spirit.

 Now here is our study:

The real But Satan comes to earth first and he (Satan) will claim he is God.
Will you endure until the end (wait) for the real Christ, or will He (Jesus) find you worshiping Satan when He
(Jesus) returns!
Do you know how to tell the difference?
Are you sure!
Ezekiel tells us all about Satan and who he is is, and how he looks, the 28th chapter of his book.
Ezekiel 28:11

Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

[12] 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.

We know that Tyrus means "rock" with a small "r" and the king of Tyrus refers to Satan who we already learned wanted to be "king", like our Rock, who is Jesus Christ. But as it is written in Deuteronomy chapter 32, which is the Song of Moses referred to in Rev. 15 that the overcomers will be singing at the return of Christ, this "little rock" is NOT our Rock: Deut. 32:31 "For their rock is not as our Rock..."

However, this "rock" was once a very honored and esteemed individual by our Father and all of His children too! That would include you and me. There is no mention of Satan having a little red suit and a pitchfork, is there? He is very handsome and very charismatic, a real charmer.

[13] Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God;
This verse documents that we are not talking about the literal human king of Tyre. This is all about Satan. This next part of the verse is very insightful if you have eyes to see and are familiar with God's Word.
[13 ... continued] 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.
First we see that Satan was created just like every other son of God. But, we see that a "workmanship" was also prepared for him. What in the world is that? Here's the definition of the Hebrew word "workmanship".
mela'kah, mel-aw-kaw', Hebrew 4399; from the same as Hebrew 4397 (mal'ak); properly deputyship, i.e. ministry; generally employment (never servile) or work (abstract or concrete); also property (as the result of labor) :- business, + cattle, + industrious, occupation, (+ -pied), + officer, thing (made), use, (manner of) work ([-man], -manship).
Lucifer was given a very important DUTY or POSITION. Do you know what it was? It may surprise some! Notice in verse 13 that "every precious stone" adorned him. This simply means that Satan WORE the "Breastplate of a Priest of God", a very high position indeed! That's right, and verse 14 will show he was "anointed" to this position by our Father. You see, these stones listed in verse 13 are EXACTLY the same stones that the Levitical priests of Israel wore. Let's read the description of the priest's breastplate so we know for sure. (You can compare stone for stone if you like.)
Exodus 28:17-21
And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones: the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the first row.

[18] And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.

[19] And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

Note to the deeper scholar: This entire third row is missing from Ezekiel 28:13 in Hebrew, but it is supplied in the Septuagint.
[20] And the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be set in gold in their inclosings.
So what do these stones represent?
[21] And the stones shall be with the names of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet; every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve tribes.
So we now understand that this "morning star", Lucifer, was a high priest of God even over the children of God. Think about it!

Do you really think this man Lucifer/Satan will have any problem convincing un-knowledgeable proclaiming Christians, that he is indeed God!

If you value "Eternal Life" You had better get to studying everything Jesus taught us in His Bible!

 Jesus said, in 
Mark 13:23 

But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things

All things that He foretold us includes how to tell the difference between Himself and the highly esteemed archangel priest (Satan, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil) who is full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty that hast been in Eden the garden of God where he first started to deceive flesh and blood man. (Eve and Adam)

He told Paul in: 1 Cor. 15:44 how we will know for sure if it is He, Himself, or if it is Satan that you are seeing here on earth! 

What happens to our bodies at the last trump?

Would you like to know a secret or mystery?

The apostle Paul is about to show us one.

In 1 Cor. 15 (read the entire chapter) Paul explains that you have two bodies, a flesh body and a spiritual body.

1 Cor. 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
There is a natural (flesh) body,
and there is a spiritual body.

He's talking about you and me.

When our flesh body dies we are changed into our spiritual body
and go to be with the Lord.

Absent from the body, present with the Lord.

This is basic Christianity 101.

Now for the mystery!  Paul is speaking...

1 Cor. 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery;
Pay close attention here! This is a mystery (Gk.= musterion, secret or mystery) to most people.
We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
Here's how Dr. Moffat translates it:
1 Cor. 15:51 Here is a secret truth for you: not all of us are to die, but all of us are to be changed -
Hold that thought for a moment...
"not all of us are going to die,
but all of us are to be changed".

Question - Changed to what?

Answer - To our spiritual bodies!

When and how are we going to be changed?

We return to the King's James translation:

[52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
What happens at the last trump,
which is the seventh and final trump,
since there are only seven?

Jesus Christ returns and we "who are alive and remain" are INSTANTLY,
in the twinkling of an eye,
changed from our flesh body to our spiritual body.

Not after Christ has been here awhile,
but instantly at the sound of the trump!

Now, we learned in study (Live Link) to- #1452 that the son of perdition,
Satan, the spurious messiah, comes FIRST,
at the six trump.

Do you know what that means?

You guessed it!

If you are still in the flesh,
if you still bleed when pricked with a pin,
then Jesus Christ hasn't returned.

Or, do you see grandma, sitting over there in her rocking chair. If she appears to be older than you, you are still in your flesh and blood body. Christ has not yet returned!

Now you know the secret!

Never forget it!
You will still be in the flesh when Satan shows up here on earth, claiming to be Christ, i.e. during the tribulation but will be changed instantly into your spirit body the moment Christ really returns!

I repeat,
If you still bleed when pricked with a pin you are still in the flesh,
meaning, the real Jesus Christ still hasn't returned.

The real

Don't be fooled,
 Your eternal life depends on it!

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals. 
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
