POWERS AND PRINCIPALITIES
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Hesus of the West and Crishna of the East), the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the Knowledge of him:
The eyes of your Understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.
AND WHAT IS THE EXCEEDING GREATNESS OF HIS POWER to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty Power.
Which he wrought in Christ when he raised him from the dead (according to Paul's gospel), and set him at his own Right Hand in the Heavenly places.
Far above all Principality, and Power, and Might, and Dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.
And hath put all things UNDER HIS FEET, and gave him to be THE HEAD over all things to the church,
WHICH IS HIS BODY, THE FULNESS OF HIM THAT FILLETH ALL IN ALL...(Ephesians 1:17-23).
And I saw a Beast rise up out of the sea...Revelation, chapter 13; Isaiah, chapters 13 and 14; Malachi, chapter 4 (KJV)
And you hath he quickened, who were dead in tresspass and sins;
Wherein in time past we walked according to the course of this world, ACCORDING TO THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.
Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh (James, chapter 4 and 5), fulfilling the desires of the flesh AND OF THE MIND; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others...
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
That in ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus...(Ephesians 2:1-13).
Let EVERY SOUL be subject to the Higher Powers. FOR THERE IS NO POWER BUT OF GOD: the Powers that be (both East and West) are ordained of God.
Whosoever therefore resisteth the Power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive unto themselves damnation (destruction).
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the Power? do that which is good (walk in the precepts and teachings of Christ), and thou shalt have praise of the same.
For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid, for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is a minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil...(Romans 13:1-4).
For by him were all things created, THAT ARE IN HEAVEN (beyond our comprehension) AND THAT ARE IN EARTH (within the field of our own natural perceptions), VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE, whether they be Thrones, or Dominions, or Principalities, or Powers, all things were created by him, and for him...(Colossians 1:12-20).
And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven (out of the East) with his mighty angels,
In Flaming Fire taking vengeance on them that know not God (on them that say they do, but do not...Hebrews 6:4-11; 2 Peter 2; the Book of Jude), and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the Presence of the Lord, and from the Glory of His Power;
When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and be admired in all them that believe because our testimony among you was believed in that day...(2 Thessalonians 1:6-10; Isaiah 66:15-18).
"An evident sign that thou mayest understand when the end of all things (the end of this age and the beginning of the next) is coming on earth. When the Swords in the Star-lit sky appear by night toward dusk (in America) and toward dawn (in the East). This is the consummation of war, which God, whose dwelling in heaven is bringing to pass..." The Sibylline Oracle III.796.
The Ten Sefirot (Spheres) of the Tree of Life
And he made the Stars also...(Genesis 1:14).
Is not God in the height of the heaven? AND BEHOLD THE HEIGHT OF THE STARS, HOW HIGH THEY ARE!
And thou sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through the Dark Cloud?
Thick clouds are a covering to him, that he seeth not; and he walketh in the Circuit of the heaven.
Hast thou marked the old way which men have trodden?
Which were cut down out of time, WHOSE FOUNDATION WAS OVERFLOWN WITH A FLOOD (by the judgment wars of Noah's time...Revelation 17:15):
Which said unto God, Depart from us, and what can the Almighty do to them...(Job 22:12-17).
When I consider the heavens, the Sun, the Moon, the Stars...(Psalm 8:1-9; Jeremiah 31:35,36).
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations; AND JERUSALEM SHALL BE TRODDEN DOWN OF THE GENTILES, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
And there shall be signs in the Sun (Christianity), and in the Moon (Judaism), and in the Stars (the powers of the East); and upon earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a Cloud with power and glory.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh...(Luke 21:24-36; Hebrews 12:25-29).
