And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously. ( Isaiah 24:21-23)
Isaiah saw the day of the LORD, the final intervention of the Most High into the affairs of men in this world. The Earth is violently shaken, the earth reels as a drunkard, the city of proud defiance is brought down.It is the day of visitation for the sins that have piled to heaven. The proud and arrogant tremble in their homes, at least, the few who remain alive.
Out of the rubble, a song arises, “Glory to the Righteous One” for there is a remnant of those who had turned to God in humble faith, confessing and forsaking their sins, in a world which scoffed at the notion of repentance.
The Kings of the earth and their rulers, the experts, the wise of the Age, and the great, accomplished men of the earth, the very people who steered the culture over the abyss, are gathered together to give account for their sins;
And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. ( Revelation 19:18-20)
We are told that not only will the human architects which shaped his defective and God rejecting culture be arrested, But the very Evil Spirits that empowered and inspired them also will be rounded up on that day, for their final trial and punishment before the Most High God and the Lamb.
The “Host of the High Ones” whom Isaiah saw, are the very spiritual entities Paul referred to in the sixth chapter of Ephesians, when he told us that we are “wrestling against Prinipalities, Powers, and rulers of the darkness of this age, spiritual wickedness in High places”.( Ephesians 6:10-18)
It is becoming increasingly obvious, that our cultural elite, the so called opinion shapers, teachers, educators, leadership in the major fields of Law, Medicine, Education, entertainment, and yes, even religion, including apostate Christianity, are increasingly being steeped in the Occult. Many of them are openly serving dark powers and some of them are Satanists.
As the Apostle John tells us, “The whole world lies in the Wicked One”.
A Prime example of a chief cultural leader showing signs of intercourse with the Dark World, is Bill Gates, the richest man on the planet and one of the most influential. His employment of Marina Abrimovich as one of the spokesperson for Microsoft speaks volumes.
Abrimovich is an open witch and occultist. She does performance art with blood, and has banquets featuring food formed and shaped to look like human body parts, so that the rich and famous can pretend to cannibalism.
I am beginning to see what the Prophets and Apostles warned about is true, the Powerful in this world are often led by evil Spirits. Isaiah prophesied against Lucifer as the one who “weakens the Nations”.
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!
How has Lucifer weakened the nations? Evil Spirits have come from him to deceive and persuade many Kings and leaders to self destructive decisions on behalf of the Nations. Rasputin comes to mind.
“Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.” (Revelation 16:13-14)
Evil Spirits undermine whole nations, using destructive philosophies, such as Humanism, Postmodernism, Existentialism, Nihilism and Relativism. Like opportunistic diseases, these philosophies have flowed into the Judeo Christian West, in the Vacuum left by the great defection from Christianity, which has been ocurring in the US and the West in general for the past 100 years.
These “Hosts from on High”, are revealed in scripture such as Daniel, who reveals the “Prince of Persia ” and the “Prince of Grecia”, fallen ‘princes’ who actually resisted Gabriel the Angelic messenger,
Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia….But I shall now return to fight against the prince of Persia; so I am going forth, and behold, the prince of Greece is about to come. ( Daniel 10:12-20)
These are the Principalities and rulers of “spiritual wickedness in High Places,” Which Paul the Apostle spoke of in Ephesians. They have been deceiving and manipulating nations and leaders for all of these centuries, to turn men away from God, and His Holy will, But Isaiah saw them rounded up , arrested, and thrown into the (bottomless pit).
The Judgment and sentencing of the demonic hierarchy will be the first official business of the Kingdom of God in the Dawning of the New Day.
