Yes, the Old Devils are at it again.
As the folk song in the above video says,
It’s true right now
like it was back then
The old devils
are at it again.
Yep. It’s that old Biblical maxim: As then, so again. In other words, there’s nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
It’s the story of this entire flesh earth age: It’s the devil and his children on this earth working to overthrow, enslave and ultimately destroy the children of God, and take their God-given riches and blessings from them in the process.
The old devils never stop in their ongoing quest to draw the multitudes of this world away from God, enslave them, and finally, divide up the world’s wealth between themselves.
Today, they’re working to own and control the entire world before the arrival of their father the devil with his fallen angels (Revelation 12:7-12).
COVID and the Great Reset
Indeed, the central banks of this world, with the U.S. Federal Reserve (i.e., the Fed) leading the way, have essentially become one, as a means of fulfilling their long-time self-appointed mission of becoming the global lenders and buyers of last resort.
Got a crashing stock market?
Don’t worry. The Fed and the U.S. Treasury will step in, and artificially suppress interest rates while funneling newly printed money hand-over-fist into the stock market, buying it all up before prices can crash.
This is why you see soaring stock markets reaching constant new highs, day after day, week after week, month after month. The Fed doesn’t care what price they pay to own it all. After all, they’re simply printing up the money to pay for it all, out of thin air.
This has sent the markets soaring, even in the face of the weakest world economy since the Great Depression. Nearly every day of the week the US stock market now reaches new highs.
Yet that would seem impossible under such abysmal economic conditions. After all, 95 million working age Americans are still out of work – the same number from back when Obama was president.
What’s more, 200,000 small and middle-class businesses – the true backbone of this country — have been lost permanently due to the COVID lockdowns (you can thank Mr. Trump, for that one; Obama was long gone when it happened).
And today, a year and a half into the phony COVID crisis, nearly a half million people a week are still signing up for first-time unemployment. Each and every week. Without fail.
- Household debt is at an all-time record high and continues to surge. People are borrowing just to live, or just to try to maintain their current lifestyles, digging ever-deepening financial holes for themselves they won’t be able to get out of.
- 40% of American households have a collective income of less than $50k/year. In other words, the middle class is rapidly disappearing, and is being replaced by a permanent serf class.
- A whopping 25% of the entire U.S. money supply has been minted in the last six months.
- There’s now more than 36 trillion paper dollars and coins in circulation worldwide, with tens of trillions more dollars that have been “printed” digitally (in other words, digits on a computer screen).
- America is now the largest debtor nation in the history of the world, with a central bank that continues to issue more and more debt, literally every single second of every single day.
Yes, the old devils are at it again. None of this is by accident. It’s all planned. Long-planned.
So, ask yourself: How can the stock market reach new daily and weekly highs under such abysmal economic conditions?
I already told you.
The Fed – which is the U.S. central bank — is inflating the U.S. money supply to the tune of tens of trillions of dollars, sending the value of the dollar plummeting (see DXY Index chart, below, which shows the value of the dollar crashing to abysmal lows).
And the old devils, in their roles as central bankers, are using those cheaper and cheaper U.S. dollars – which they generate out of thin air with the stroke of a few computer keys – to buy up the financial assets of world, through the various financial markets. In the end, they’ll own or control virtually everything.
This is why Klaus Schwab – executive chairman of the World Economic Forum – has stated that in the very near future:
“You’ll own nothing. And you’ll be happy.”
The Fed is even shuffling trillions of U.S. dollars to central banks worldwide, so those banks can do the same thing in their respective countries.
After all, the U.S. dollar is the world reserve currency.
So, wherever financial weaknesses are found in the world, the various central banks of the world can now step in and start propping up the price of assets by buying them with cheap, freshly minted U.S. dollars. Trillions and trillions of them. Courtesy of the U.S. Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury.
You see, the U.S. Treasury and the Fed have essentially been merged so these trillions of brand new U.S. dollars could be created, then spent to buy up the U.S. financial markets, and finally distributed to the central banks of the nations of this world, so they can do the same in their respective countries.
Look at the following chart showing the unbelievably sharp spike in the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet that began in 2020, simultaneous to the COVID crisis. This reflects the total number of financial assets the Fed has purchased, priced in dollars, since the COVID crisis began:
Take a good long look at that massive upward spike in the Fed’s accumulation of assets beginning in 2020. It marks an almost parabolic upward spike in accumulation of financial assets since the COVID crisis started.
This spike includes the $40 billion per month in mortgage-backed securities the Fed is buying, creating today’s massive hyper-bubble in real estate prices that have left most of the people of this nation unable to afford a new home.
Indeed, the steep spike in the chart above represents a doubling of Fed assets, from 4 million million dollars (that’s Fed-speak for 4 trillion dollars) in the beginning of 2020 to eight million million dollars (i.e., 8 trillion dollars) in assets owned by the Fed by the end of the year 2020.
Yes, all in just one year. They’re truly buying up the world, and adding those assets to their financial balance sheets.
But how can the old devils buy up the world, like that?
It’s simple. As I told you. They printed the money out of thin air and put it into circulation. Take a look at the Federal Reserve money supply chart, and pay particular attention to that huge and unprecedented spike in the M1 money supply that took place in 2020:
That gargantuan spike in money supply corresponds directly with the huge spike in asset accumulation by the Federal Reserve during the same time-period (see previous chart, “Total Assets of the Federal Reserve”), because the Fed is using the newly minted money to buy up the financial assets of the world.
And it also corresponds with the steep downward trajectory in the value of the U.S. dollar (see the DXY chart, earlier in this commentary), because newly printed money always dilutes the value of old money in circulation.
By the end of 2020 the U.S. money supply rocketed from 4,000 billion (i.e., four trillion) dollars, to 7,000 billion (i.e., seven trillion) dollars.
And as of April 2021, that money supply had soared to…drum roll, please…18 thousand billion (i.e., $18 trillion) dollars! Check it out in the following chart:
In other words, the U.S. money supply has nearly tripled from its 2020 ending level in just the first four months of 2021. This is unprecedented in U.S. history.
How the Old Devils Did It:
Money Velocity and the COVID Lockdowns
To make possible this money-printing free-for-all, so the Federal Reserve and the world central banks could start buying up the world, a near-total global shutdown was required.
Because the old devils knew that to print and distribute that much money, that quickly, and start buying assets around the world with it, would send global inflation soaring through the rooftops, with the prices of food, gas, housing and other goods and services skyrocketing beyond reach, and thus alerting the public to the takeover scam.
So, the old devils came up with a plan to first bring the global velocity of money in the economy to a screeching halt. It was the COVID plan.
You see, the velocity of money is basically a measurement of the amount of money chasing after goods and services in countries around the world. The old devils knew this velocity of money would first have to be curtailed, so afterwards they could issue trillions upon trillions in new dollars and send them into the economy, as they quietly and without fanfare worked to buy up the financial assets of the world.
Yes, when money velocity slows to a crawl — meaning not much money is actively being spent by consumers on goods and services — the economy essentially goes dormant. And new money can then be printed and distributed throughout the economy – relatively quickly — without triggering massive bouts of inflation in the near-term.
By instituting the global lockdowns under the fake COVID crisis, international trade between nations plummeted to some of the lowest levels in history. The old devils destroyed millions of businesses, worldwide. And they put hundreds of millions of folks out of work, collectively, worldwide.
And when folks are out of work, they do what? They stop spending money. Indeed, being out of work, they don’t have any money to spend on goods and services, except what might have been in their savings.
As a quick example, in good times, Americans spend some $10.7 trillion per year, shopping. This includes both necessities and non-necessities. On average, that’s a whopping $29 billion per day.
But lock the nation down…put nearly 200,000 small businesses completely out of business and 500,000 people per week onto the first-time unemployment rolls — and that $29 billion-per-day figure plummets dramatically. Think about it: Spending on tourism…gone. Spending on big-ticket items like cars, trucks, large household appliances…gone. Spending on dining out at restaurants…gone. Spending on overseas and domestic travel…gone. Spending on major sports events, music concerts, Broadway shows…movie theaters…gone. Spending on gambling and other forms of entertainment…gone. Spending on new clothing and other goods…gone
According to the Kansas City Fed, “Consumer spending patterns shifted considerably over the past year as the pandemic altered everyday life. Employment losses, changes in income, and restrictions on activities led consumers to spend less overall as well as modify the mix of goods and services they purchased. These shifts have, in turn, affected business performance and lowered overall economic activity in the broader U.S. economy.”
This broad slowdown in economic activity — which has taken place in every nation, worldwide — slows the velocity of money to a crawl, temporarily, so that price inflation doesn’t roar onto the scene, driving the prices of food, gas, and other goods and services through the roof, as the Fed cranks up the money presses to go on its global buying spree of financial assets using cheap, newly-printed U.S. dollars.
With the velocity of money slowed to a crawl thanks to the lockdowns and subsequent losses of hundreds of thousands of businesses and tens of millions of jobs, the Fed was then (and still is) free to print and distribute trillions of U.S. dollars worldwide, buying up everything in sight (in terms of financial instruments like stocks, bonds, mortgage-backed securities and much more), without triggering a torrent of inflation in the near-term.
Already, even with the lockdowns and massive job and business losses, price inflation is now at a 13 year high and is growing at the fastest pace in U.S. history. That’s how much money they’re printing.
Yet in spite of this frightening economic news, the Fed has ZERO intention of turning off their inflation-creation machine (i.e., the printing press) until they’re done buying up the world through the various central banks of the world.
By the time the hyper-inflationary crisis finally hits, the prices of goods and services will soar to such an extent the average middle-class family simply won’t be able to afford them. But by then, it will be too late to do anything about it. The global takeover will have been completed. The Fed and the central banks of the world will quite literally own it all.
And the people of the world will then have to turn to the old devils, imploring them for help.
And boy, will those old devils ever be happy to “help.” Yes. As long as you’re willing to go along with their plan, which is to say, for you to own nothing, and be happy about it. Then, they’ll be happy to take you firmly in to their bosoms via their collective political tentacles, and put you on the global financial dole — the so-called Universal Global Income — which means they’ll completely own and control you.
This makes those old devils, the central bankers, the real rulers of this world right now – not just in the U.S., but globally.
It also makes the central bankers – those old devils who run the show — Public Enemy #1, bar none. They’re the ones responsible for everything you’re seeing right now in this economy…in this nation’s politics…and in what’s going in the rest of the world.
They are in complete, 100% control. In fact, they ARE the new government of the United States of America. And their stranglehold is going to get a lot worse, moving forward. As a nation, we’re beyond the point of no return.
The Constitution is already dead. If it weren’t, our leaders would be following it. But it’s gone. No one follows it any longer. And the only reason you haven’t yet realized it is because they didn’t bother to hold a funeral.
If you don’t believe the Constitution is dead, ask yourself these questions:
Do I still have free speech?
Do I still have free movement?
Do we still have free choice?
Do we still have freedom of association?
The answer to the above questions is decidedly “No!”
- You’re publicly censored – and even banned — if you publicly speak your mind.
- Your freedom of movement is routinely restricted (year-round lockdowns, vaccine passports, stand six feet away from everyone else if you do get to go out, etc.).
- You’re punished – sometimes severely — if your mind-set is not in complete lockstep with the financial and pollical policies being instituted by the old devils.
- And you have no more free choice or freedom of association. If you’re a Christian cake decorator, for example, you can no longer choose to turn away a customer asking you to decorate a cake for a “gay wedding.” You have no choice but to associate with that person, even though the Bible says to wipe the dust off your feet and head the other direction. Yet, at the same time, if you choose to associate with, say, a conservative political group, or a church that teaches God’s truth without political correctness, and without fear or favor to any group, you’re publicly vilified as a “racist” or a “hater” or even as a “deplorable.”
In other words, the very freedoms our Constitution once guaranteed to us are now becoming verboten. And it’s getting worse and worse by the day. Don’t be under any illusion that it will get better. It never again will. The Constitution is essentially gone.
Shortly after the 9-11 terror attacks, when the Patriot Act was being debated regarding its Constitutionality, George Bush Jr. was quoted in the news as saying the Constitution is “Just a f–ing piece of paper.”
When that quote was reported, I honestly didn’t believe it. I thought it was fake news. I didn’t believe a sitting president – a self-professed “conservative” president who had sworn to uphold and protect the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic” — would say such a thing.
I now believe all politicians think of the U.S. Constitution as “just a f-ing piece of paper.”
You might think the politicians you voted for are still in charge of this country, and are working to turns things around.
But they’re not. Not in the least. They’re all just figureheads. They take their orders from the central bankers. They’ve all been bought and paid for. Every last one of them. (Yes, even your favorite politician – yes, the one who “can’t be bought”.) And these so-called “lawmakers” do exactly what they’re told, because they have no other choice.
If this wasn’t true, you’d know it, because heads would be rolling over the phony COVID crisis, with all of its deceptions, outright fraud and deceit – not to mention the massive numbers of unnecessary deaths, bordering on murder (think of the massive numbers of deaths in old folks homes, for example).
If our lawmakers were still in charge of this nation, the Congressional investigations would already be winding down. And the arrests would be taking place.
But our politicians have all been neutered. And the central bankers – the old devils who are behind the COVID crisis — have completely taken over. That was the real COVID plan. And it’s nowhere near over with, yet. They’re still busy buying up the world with freshly printed U.S. dollars.
New World Order?
You might think this sounds a lot like a “new world order.” Well, you’re right. It does. Because that’s exactly what it is. A burgeoning new world order, with the world’s central bankers — led by the U.S. Federal Reserve — in complete charge of it all.
But this banker-run world government is only temporary. That’s important to understand. The ultimate goal of the old devils is to crash the entire world financial system, and then usher in a brand spanking new financial and political system with the old devils at the helm, in total control and in total ownership of everything of value.
In other words, their goal is to own and control it all. Worldwide. Before their father the devil and his fallen angels arrive to this earth and crank up their phony one-world religious revival.
The old devils are simply prepping the world – getting it ready – for the arrival of their father the devil. They want total control before he gets here, so they can hand him the entire world on a silver platter as he walks in the door, so to speak.
As you’ll see when we take a quick look, below, at Ezekiel chapter 28, they’ve been working at this goal for a l-o-o-o-n-g time. Centuries. In fact, it’s been their purpose from the very beginning.
What you’re witnessing, ultimately, is the purposeful creation of a two-tiered global society composed of extreme “haves” and extreme “have nots, with the middle class vanishing before our very eyes.
Yes, there will be the ruling class. And there will be the serfs…slaves…on the government dole and under complete government control. But nothing in between.
Here’s your takeaway from all of this:
The U.S. dollar – which, please keep in mind, is also the world’s reserve currency — is a dying asset, by design. What you’ve just read, above, is the plan being followed by the old devils, in order to take over the world, then destroy the dying dollar in a hyper-inflationary blowoff and issue a new global digital currency in its place.
This will put the old devils in complete control of every aspect of your life. You’ve seen it already, in China, as the so-called “social credit system” in which you either do as the state says, or have all privileges (food, drink, travel, work, monthly financial allotment) revoked.
This is all part of the United Nations “sustainable development” agenda, aka Agenda 2030. Yes, the very governmental system in which you’ll ultimately “own nothing, and be happy.”
What’s more, you’ll be spied on and your life will be micromanaged for the duration of your time on this earth, from cradle-to-grave. Read about it with a critical eye, at the link in the above paragraph. Or google “Agenda 21” and “Agenda 2030.” And weep for our once-great nation and our world.
Yes, as the short poem in the above video states, “the world is run by the ones you cannot see” — i.e., those old devils, the central bankers — and everything else is just illusion, including the idea that you can “elect” your own leaders. Those days are long gone. The last election proved it.
What Does the Bible Say About It?
With all of that in mind, let’s take a quick look at Ezekiel chapter 28, and see if the Scripture backs up any of this information about the old devils and their drive to own it all, and control it all, at the expense of God’s children.
Please note that this chapter of Ezekiel is divided into two specific sections, one regarding the “prince of Tyrus,” and the other regarding the “king of Tyrus.”
And as you read these verses, please keep in mind that a “prince” is the son of a “king.”
In other words, if the “king of Tyrus” represents Satan in this chapter, then the “prince of Tyrus” represents Satan’s children the Kenites, which is to say, the offspring of Cain who rule this world from behind the scenes, while calling themselves “Jews” (Revelation 2:9 and 3:9).
It is they who seek to destroy the current world system, while buying up its assets with cheaper and cheaper U.S. dollars.
As Zionist author Maurice Samuel* states in his seminal book on Jewish supremacism, You Gentiles, the old devils will eventually own it all. They’ll do it by destroying the old order, and ushering in a new order. He states:
“We, Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever. Nothing that you do will meet our needs and demands. We will forever destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which is not in your nature to build.”
[*Maurice Samuel (1895–1972) was a Jewish author who focused much of his writings on Judaism and the Jewish role in history and society. A leading member of the Zionist Organization of America, he was widely celebrated in Jewish circles, and won many awards during his life, including the Anisfield-Wolf Award in 1943 for his book, The World of Sholom Aleichem; the award of The Saturday Review of Literature in 1944; the 1956 Stephen S. Wise Award; and the 1967 B’nai B’rith Jewish Heritage Award. In 1964 Brandeis University awarded Samuel an honorary degree, Doctor of Humane Letters. On the day of his death, in 1972, Samuel was to have been in Israel to receive the Manger Prize for Yiddish Literature, for which he had been nominated by Israeli President.]
So, today, we have to contend with the old devils – the Kenite “gods” of this world who control the four hidden dynasties of politics, economics, education and religion, and who pull the strings from behind-the-scenes as they prepare for the arrival of their father the devil by buying up the world with our own dying currency.
And soon, we’ll have to contend directly with the actual “god” of this world, Satan (II Corinthians 4:4), who comes to this earth as the false messiah, more commonly referred to by knowledgeable Christians as the antichrist, or the instead-of-Christ (i.e., the one who comes in Christ’s stead, pretending to be the savior of the world).
Ezekiel chapter 28 tells us about these two, separate, yet intimately-related, powers, and how they work. It explains that their goals are to own it all, which is to say, above all things they want a monopoly over the wealth of this world and its people.
The Prince of Tyrus: the Kenite “gods” of this World
Here’s what our heavenly Father’s Word has to say on this issue:
Eze 28:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
Eze 28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:
The “prince of Tyrus” represents the Kenite rulers of this world, who rule at the behest of their father the devil, until he arrives in his role as the false messiah. They think of themselves as little “gods.”
The place name “Tyrus” means “a rock.” Here’s from the Strong’s Concordance:
The same as H6864; a rock; Tsor, a place in Palestine: – Tyre, Tyrus.
While Tyrus was an actual geographical location (i.e., the rock island of Tyre, the celebrated commercial city of Phoenicia, on the coast of the Mediterranean near the land allotment of the Israelite tribe of Asher), this very same place-name can also refer metaphorically to Satan himself, the false rock we read of in Deuteronomy 32, where Moses writes, “For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.”
You see, as I started earlier, this “prince of Tyrus” metaphorically represents the descendants of Cain. Why? Because a “prince” is the son of king. And Satan, who thinks of himself as “king,” has children, through his first son, Cain, who see themselves as little divinities on this earth. They are our rulers, though often from behind-the-scenes. They are the old devils of this earth.
And in a sense, they are indeed little divinities, since they carry the genetics of the flesh, as well as the genetics of Satan himself due to his seduction of Eve in the garden.
Call them little demi-gods if you want.
But the truth is, as the Lord points out in a few more verses, they all die like men. And that’s because they are men, though they were sired by Satan himself, and seek to rule over all of God’s creation, as little divinities, until their father the devil arrives in his role as the false messiah to the world.
Eze 28:3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:
The Kenite rulers of this world — the old devils themselves — are extremely intelligent. They plan not years nor decades ahead, but instead, centuries.
And the fact that there is no secret that the people of this world can hide from the Kenite, should hint to you of the massive world-wide spy apparatus they run, as well.
Yes, every email you write, every tweet you make, every post on social media, every phone call you make is monitored, recorded and stored. Perhaps even every word you mutter in the supposed privacy and sanctity of your own home, particularly if you have “smart “systems” installed, such as Alexa.
The Kenites are on top of it all. It’s all about data collection. But to what end?
Eze 28:4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
Of course. Money. That’s the goal. They pile up the riches by manipulating entire markets. They’re involved in every sale…every financial transaction…every investment made.
Indeed, just as the money-changers of Christ’s time took a piece of every financial transaction made in the Temple of God, so today the Kenite powers take a piece of every financial transaction made anywhere in this world – small or large.
This is why investment market volatility is created. The more volatile the world financial markets are made to be, the more buying and selling will be done by the people.
You see, for every buyer, there’s a seller. And for every seller, there’s a buyer. And the Kenite takes their cut both ways – i.e., from both parties — every time a financial instrument of any kind is bought or sold. And there are millions of such transactions every single day. That’s why the huge banking enterprises owned by the old devils are also investment trading houses.
And this is why the old devils love to roil up the markets as often as possible. The more volatility they can stir up in the financial markets, the more buying and selling takes place in their trading houses.
When markets are calm and stable, folks tend to leave their money and investments alone. They save for that proverbial “rainy day.” They’re not constantly buying and selling, reacting to volatile market fluctuations.
But when markets are roiled up – i.e., when financial volatility is purposefully created – sellers begin to sell, and buyers begin to buy, and the Kenite middle-man takes his cut in every transaction. Thus, they use market volatility as a financial weapon to rob God’s children of their wealth and pile it all up for themselves.
Eze 28:5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:
The word “traffick” in this verse simply means “trade (as peddled.)” The Kenites are the great traders of the investment markets and peddlers of goods, of this world.
And as rock singer Tonio K points out in his masterful song, The Executioner’s Song, which is about Cain and his progeny who now rule over this world under the power of their father the devil:
“He sold things.
He sold TVs and CDs and fast cars and film stars and cocaine and word games and limited editions.
He sold images and information.
He sold arms and ammunition.
And almost everybody loved him. And almost everyone believed him.”
Yes, nothing is bought and sold in this old world, without the children of Cain profiting from the transaction, one way or another. We even blindly thank them for providing their “services” to us!
The book of Revelation refers to them as the “merchants of this earth.” As it’s written:
“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. (Rev 18:3)
But the old devils eventually get cocky in their greed and great wealth. As they monopolize more and more of the world’s wealth, they begin to believe that the accumulation of such great wealth points directly to their divinity.
But their flesh money lust and spiritual self-aggrandizement eventually becomes their undoing, as you’ll see.
Eze 28:6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;
In other words, they think of themselves as little divinities, destined to rule over the world under their father the devil, and scoop up its wealth for themselves.
Eze 28:7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.
Thankfully, the global rule of these old devils won’t last forever. God will see to it. Their demise is part and parcel of God’s Will.
Just as the Prince of Tyrus, historically speaking, was overthrown by foreign armies of the surrounding nations, so the Kenites of today will be overthrown as well, never to rise into power again. Only Christ and His angels are going to do it this time around, at the Second Advent. The destruction of the Kenite old devils is quite literally part of God’s Great Purpose for this earth.
Eze 28:8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.
Yes, when all is said and done, the unrepentant Kenites – those old devils known euphemistically in Ezekiel 28 as the “Prince of Tyrus” — will be tossed into the pit along with their father the devil, i.e., the King of Tyrus, to await their ultimate demise in the lake of fire (Numbers 24:22; Jude 1:4: Matthew 23:33-35; II Peter 2:1-3; II Peter 2:12-13; II Peter 2:17: Isaiah 14:21-23).
As it’s written:
“Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?” (Isaiah 14:9-10).
Yes, once in that pit together, they’ll ask old Satan, their father, “Have you become as weak as we are? Have you become like us (i.e., defeated and destined for death)?”
Eze 28:9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
Our heavenly Father asks the old devils, “Are you still going to call yourselves gods, when I can end your pathetic little lives with a single word? You will die like flesh men – violently and unmercifully — because you made yourselves out to be gods and you robbed My children blind.”
Eze 28:10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
Death and destruction the old devils have meted out to God’s children. And short of repentance, death and destruction they shall receive at the hands of God Almighty. That’s God’s final word on the situation.
Now, in the remainder of this chapter, we switch from the Prince of Tyrus (i.e., those “old devil” Kenite children of Satan) to the King of Tyrus, representing Satan himself, in his eventual direct rule over this world.
A Lament over the King of Tyre
Eze 28:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Eze 28:12 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.
Satan was the most beautiful of all of God’s creation. The phrase “sealest up the sum” means Satan was created in the full pattern. In other words, he was very god-like, both in beauty and splendor, and in power.
Eze 28:13 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.
Yes, the old King of Tyre was that same “tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (Genesis 2:9 and 2:17) that resided in the Garden of Eden. The same one that seduced mother Eve, producing her first-born child, Cain – the very first of the old devils.
What’s more, he wore the priest’s gemstones on his breastplate, meaning he acted as a “high priest” to God’s children. And he was gifted with the gift of music (i.e., “the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes”), leading some Christians to refer to Satan as the “chief musician of heaven.”
Eze 28:14 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.
The phrase “the anointed cherub that covereth” means he was one of the two extremely powerful angels that covered and protected God’s mercy seat in the first heaven age, before Satan’s rebellion.
Satan earned his position as “the anointed cherub that covereth.” God granted it to him.
Then, he became lustful of that mercy seat he watched over, and wanted to sit upon it, himself. He wanted to dole out judgment, like Christ. Not because he believed in justice. But instead, because he believed he could use that judgment seat to enrich and empower himself beyond all precedence.
Eze 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
In other words, Satan changed as he became more and more powerful. He started out “perfect in thy ways,” meaning he had unblemished integrity before the face of God. That’s why God promoted him to his position as a protector of the mercy seat.
But something triggered him to become iniquitous, which is to say, perverse and unrighteous. He became enamored with himself and with piling up wealth and destabilizing God’s kingdom as a means of working to take it for himself.
Eze 28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
The phrase “by the multitude of thy merchandise” should have been translated, “By the abundance of thy peddled trade.” In other words, business as usual.
And the word “violence” should have been translated “unjust gain.”
This alludes to the fact that Satan roils up the markets of the world until massive trade imbalances exist which, in turn, cause wars and other violence.
This, in turn, creates the profound market volatility that gives the old devils (Satan’s children on this earth) the ability to take their cut from every side of every transaction, thus piling up their wealth to the point that 1% of the people of this world own something like 90% of all money.
In fact, according to Oxfam International, the world’s richest 1% now own twice as much as the world’s bottom 90%.
Or, put another way, the world’s twenty-one hundred (yes, that’s 2,100) billionaires own more of the world’s wealth than the 4.6 billion people at the bottom of the global wealth pyramid.
Eze 28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
Satan’s splendorous beauty blinded him. He convinced himself that he was just as qualified to rule as God Almighty. But God doesn’t like it when He gives someone so much power and glory and blessings, only to have that person turn on Him, then turn a substantial portion of His children against Him (Revelation 12:3-4), and try to take over His kingdom.
So, this very mighty…very splendorous heavenly being…will be cast down to the earth and ultimately, at Christ’s Second Advent, stripped of his strength and beauty and wealth, and thrown into a deep pit where he will be laid before the very kings of this earth who served under his rule throughout history.
As it’s written in Isaiah 14:9-17:
“Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
“All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us? Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.
“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!
“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: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
“Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?”
I think you’ll agree that the old saying, “to gain the whole world, but lose your soul in the process” applies mightily here.
Eze 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
The term, “defiled thy sanctuaries” means profaned your holy places. In other words, Satan takes God out of the equation in the churches.
And how does he do this? As it’s written in the above verse, “by the multitude of thy iniquities,” which should have been translated “by the multitude of thy perversities.”
Yes, the old androgyne brought faggotry and other forms of perversion right into the churches, with the specific purpose of defiling the churches in God’s eyes – thereby forcing God to turn His back on them and remove His blessings and protection from them.
The term “by the iniquity of thy traffick” should have been translated “by the perversion of thy trade.”
In other words, Satan turned the churches over to the money-changers – those old devils, his children, who also run the central banks and other financial institutions of this world. He turned the churches into well-oiled wealth-robbing entities, just as the Jews had done in the temple, in Christ’s time.
Indeed, in Christ’s time, the Lord took a cat-of-nine-tails to the old devils, filled with glass shards, and whipped their backs with it, overturning their money tables in the process, and saying to them, “My house will be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves.”
And they brutally beat Him and hung Him on a cross for it.
But this next time around, it will be quite different. With them now guilty of Christ’s murder – indeed, of deicide – He will have no compunction about destroying the old devils when He returns. And destroying their father the devil along with them.
Old Satan will ultimately be brought “to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.” Which means he’ll be destroyed in the lake of fire (Revelation 20:10).
Eze 28:19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
“Never shalt thou be any more.” Satan will no longer exist, in the eternal age to come.
Instead, he will be destroyed in the lake of fire, along with the unrepentant Kenites, those old devils who presently run the world’s central banking institutions and who seek to take over the world financially and politically for their father the devil so he can come to this earth, triumphantly, in his role as the false messiah.
But Satan’s return to this old earth will be a short-lived one. We have God’s Word on it. In the end, the very thought of him will terrify folks, because they had no idea such a supremely powerful entity could be so handily defeated at the hands of the Lord Most High, Jesus Christ.
Yes, the same Holy One who overthrew their money tables and bloodied their backs with glass shards tied to the knots in a whip, will this time around fully destroy them, and their father the devil along with them.
You are witnessing the greatest transfer of wealth in world history. From the “hate nots” to the “haves.” And you haven’t seen anything, yet. It’s ongoing. And by the time Satan finally gets here, it will all be owned by the old devils, his children who do his bidding.
But when the Good Lord returns, it will all be over for them. For good. As the reggae singer Jimmy Cliff writes in one of his songs, John Crow, “Ev’ry road have a bend, ev’ry wicked have an end.”
And, so it will be. There will be no more old devils in the kingdom of the Lord, robbing and enslaving the people. No more oppression. No more tyranny. It’s all over for them. They just don’t realize it yet.
As it’s written of God’s game plan for the very end of this flesh age:
Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Rev 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
As it’s written, so it will come to pass. You can take it to the bank, because you have your Father’s Word on it.
The old devils will simply not be here to enjoy the rejuvenated earth and the eternity. Only the overcomers – those who remain faithful and true to Jesus Christ during Satan’s short reign on this earth – will enjoy the eternal age.
And that’s our Father’s Word on the subject. The old devils may well be at it again. It’s what they do. But they’re going down, in the end.
Post Script to This Commentary:
The video at the top of this Bible commentary is based on a folk song by William Elliott Whitmore called “Old Devils,” which can be found in his album, Animals in the Dark. (Yes, those animals.)
Whitmore is an Iowa farmer who sings songs about the human condition, particularly songs about authority figures who abuse their power, and the effects this abuse of power has on the multitudes of this world.
The chorus line which runs throughout this song is “The old devils are at it again.”
I think this modern-day folk song is quite appropriate to this short Bible commentary, because today, during the so-called COVID crisis, the “old devils” are indeed at it again, as I’ve documented throughout this commentary.
And by “old devils” I’m referring to the children of Satan himself, which is to say, the Kenites who came into this world surreptitiously, thanks to Satan’s seduction of Eve in the garden.
These old devils have been in operation ever since the time of the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. And over the long course of time, they’ve become our global masters and the global Builders of Cities, as well, ultimately leading up to the establishment of that worldwide “city” known as Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth.
Of course, that coming global “city” will not be completed until their father the devil arrives to this earth physically (Revelation 12:7-12) in his role as the false messiah (II Thessalonians 2:4 and Revelation 13:11-18).
The building of this worldwide “city” – which will be headquartered at Jerusalem as the capitol of the new world order — has always been their goal. But to achieve that goal, they first have to:
- Cripple the political, financial and industrial might of the western Christian nations.
- Rob God’s Christian people of their freedom and liberty so they can’t effectively fight back or otherwise intervene.
- Take over the world and its marketplaces by becoming the global lenders and buyers of last resort, using the printing press and the U.S. dollar to do so.
- Destroy the old global financial order, as a means of instituting a new global financial order in which “you will own nothing, and will be happy.”
You’re witnessing it playing out, now. Just as you’ll be witnessing it when the Good Lord returns, and destroys the rule of those old devils in one fell swoop, as so vividly described in Revelation chapter 18.
As it’s written, in this chapter that needs no interpretation:
Rev 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
Rev 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
Rev 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Rev 18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
Rev 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
Rev 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Rev 18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
Rev 18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
Rev 18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
You can read the rest of that important and eye-opening chapter for yourself, and through it, witness the destruction of the old devils and their system before it actually happens. As it’s written above, the old devils won’t get away with a thing. You have your Father’s Word on it.
For all of their profound and largely successful efforts in this flesh age, they simply will not exist in the eternal spiritual age to come. They’ll be done away with, along with their father the devil.
And that knowledge makes me sleep good and curled up tight each night. With a smile on my face. How about you?
