AA CO - FOUNDERS WERE NOT CHRISTIANS

AA SYMBOL - SATANIC

NOTE: Sadly, many Christians still defend this methodology and don't seem to understand that it conflicts with the scriptures. Once again, having a form of godliness but denying its power.

By John Lanagan
Posted: 05/20/2008

It is a fearful thing, leaving AA. The Big Book (the AA “bible”) states, “We thought we could find an easier, softer way. But we could not.”[1] Because this passage of AA “scripture” is taken literally, alcoholics rarely look elsewhere for help. Christians continue to jam their God, the Ancient of Days, into AA’s chameleon theology.

“Do not participate in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead even expose them.” (Ephesians 5:11-12)

It is not just fear that keeps us bound to this all-gods religion. The 12 Step experience becomes an idol—long-term involvement almost always results in a transference of faith. Bluntly stated, when it comes to sobriety, many Christians end up with more faith in the power of the 12 Step program than in Jesus Christ.

This idol worship is by no means limited to those in AA, but applies to many in “Christian 12 Step” groups.

This transference of faith is subtle, gradual, and frequently inevitable. The result is that sobriety without the 12 Step program will not even be considered. Biblical wisdom, given by concerned and caring believers, is rejected.

For many years Christians have justified their involvement by pointing to numerous books that claim AA and the 12 Steps are Christian in origin. If this is true, then obviously AA’s cofounders had to have been Christians. Indeed, this belief is also a primary rationalization for remaining in the AA religion.

Did AA cofounders Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith follow Christ? Many believe Dr. Bob to have been a student of the Word and dedicated to the Faith. To a great degree this assumption stems from the writing of Dick B., author of ‘Anne Smith’s Journal,’ and numerous other works.

Dr. Bob certainly did read the Bible. Yet, as Susan Cheever states, “Bob began every morning with meditation and prayer and twenty minutes of Bible study. Like Bill, Bob believed in paranormal possibility and the two men spent time ‘spooking,’ invoking spirits of the dead.”[2]

Early AA member Tom Powers saw the AA cofounders firsthand as they engaged in spiritualistic practices the Lord detests. (Deuteronomy 18:10-12) “Now, these people, Bill and Bob, believed vigorously and aggressively. They were working away at the spiritualism; it was not just a hobby.”[3]

It is not well known that Dr. Bob was a Mason. Suspended in 1934, he gained reinstatement after being sober for some years.[4] According to John Weldon, “The truth is that Masonry is a distinct religion that espouses teachings incompatible with Christian faith in the areas of God, salvation, and other important doctrines.”[5]

Interestingly, the description of the Mason god, the Great Architect, is similar to the higher power worshiped in Alcoholics Anonymous. Masonic researcher Carl H. Claudy notes, “Masonry does not specify any god or creed; she requires merely that you believe in some Deity, give him what name you will…. A belief in God is essential to a Mason but…any God will do…”[6]

Alcoholics Anonymous teaches the “higher power” could be a doorknob, a spirit, a fruit salad, the universe, the Dallas Cowboys (when they are winning), a new age version of Jesus, or anything else. Like the Masons, it doesn’t matter what god you believe in—only that you believe in something.

It seems that someone as allegedly devout and well versed in the Bible as Dr. Bob would stay far away from spiritualism and the Masonic organization. He most emphatically did not. Equally perplexing is Dr. Bob’s enthusiasm for Emmet Fox’s sweet-sounding but heretical book, ‘The Sermon on the Mount.’[7]

This is no minor point, since this book denies that Jesus Christ is Savior. The book was used as a teaching tool by Alcoholics Anonymous before the Big Book was written. In ‘The Sermon on the Mount,’ author Emmet Fox states there is no such thing as original sin; that the account of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden is not intended as literal history; that Jesus never walked on the water. He writes, “The ‘Plan of Salvation’ which figured so prominently in the evangelical sermons of a past generation is as completely unknown to the Bible as it is to the Koran.”[8]

Fox instructs, “In the Bible the term ‘Christ’ is not identical with Jesus, the individual. It is a technical term that may be briefly defined as the Absolute Spiritual Truth about anything.”[9] Clearly Emmet Fox, dead for decades, would have made an ideal guest on one of Oprah Winfrey’s New Spirituality shows.

Fox was an eloquent adherent of the New Thought religion. This belief system teaches that our thoughts determine our reality, and that we too can learn to tap into the same divine power that Jesus the man harnessed.

As scholars Anderson and Whitehouse note, “New Thoughters are fond of such affirmations as… ‘The Christ in me salutes the Christ in you.’ Rather than viewing Jesus as the first and last member of the Christ family, many New Thoughters believe that Christ is a title that we can all earn by following Jesus’ example.”[10]

‘The Sermon on the Mount’ is based on Fox’s heretical interpretation of Scripture. So why would Bible-believing Christians have anything to do with such a book?

Would a Christian cofounder of AA really participate in using it as a teaching tool? Or place such heresy in the hands of another alcoholic? AA cofounder Dr. Bob Smith did just this.

In a recorded 1954 interview, early AA member Dorothy S.M. reminisced, “The first thing Bob did was get me Emmet Fox’s ‘Sermon on the Mount.’”[11] Dorothy then recalled how it went with the alcoholics who wanted help: “As soon as the men in the hospital, as soon as their eyes could focus, they got to ‘The Sermon on the Mount.’”[12]

Archie T., the founder of Detroit AA, stayed with Dr. Bob and Anne Smith for more than ten months. He became sober in September of 1938. Archie T. recollected, “In Akron I was turned over to Dr. Bob and his wife. …I spent Labor Day in the hospital reading Emmet Fox’s ‘Sermon on the Mount,’ and it changed my life.”[13]

Documenting the AA history of Archie T., Detroit Archivist Cliff M. verifies, “He says he got his AA direct from one of the founders. Archie read Emmet Fox’s ‘Sermon on the Mount,’ and he said it changed his life.”[14]

It is interesting that, after many months with the Smiths, having “got his AA direct from one of the founders,” Archie T. emerged not as a Bible believing Christian, but in agreement with Emmet Fox’s New Thought theology.

Was Dr. Bob a Bible believing Christian? The Bible says, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.” (1 John 4:1-3)

Some have tried to explain early AA’s enthusiasm for various New Thought books simply because the people were, well, voracious readers. But Emmet Fox’s ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ was used to teach.

People who believe along New Thought lines often read genuinely Christian literature, as well as the Bible. They simply filter, or interpret, according to their New Thought understanding. Emmet Fox himself had no objection to his followers reading diverse spiritual books, or attending churches, or listening to speakers if it proved helpful. He warned, however, that loyalty should be to one’s own “Indwelling Christ.”[15]

This theological “filtering” may well be what Dr. Bob himself did as he read the Bible and Christian literature. Like Emmet Fox and others, Dr. Bob may simply have interpreted the Bible through a New Thought understanding, or variant thereof. Fox valued the Bible, calling it “an inexhaustible reservoir of Spiritual Truth.”[16] Dr. Bob valued it as well.

Such esoteric interpretation of the Bible—while denying the Salvation of Christ—is not confined to New Thought; it is practiced by Unity, and the Swedenborgians, each with their own anti-Biblical understanding of the Word of God.

Dr. Bob’s pursuit of spiritualism, Masonic membership, and promotion of Fox’s heretical book do not seem indicative of a deep, Bible-believing faith. Certainly he spoke highly of the Bible. But a New Thoughter who gives Jesus verbal accolades or discusses Scripture can sound quite similar to a born again Christian.

After reading the Emmet Fox book, I emailed the following question to Mel B., author of the well-researched ‘New Wine.’ Mel B. is an authority on Emmet Fox and a man who personally knew Bill Wilson:

Quote:
“Hey Mel, I’ve been reading Fox’s ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ and what he is saying (I think) was that Jesus is just a man who understood the principle laid out in the book and had power through them. He says “Christ” is not Jesus but a title (for Absolute Spiritual Truth.) So I am inclined to think that Dr. Bob, both when he referred to the Bible, and when he spoke of Jesus, saw things along the lines of what Fox taught. Do you think this is possible?”[17]

Mel emailed this reply:

Quote:
“Hi John, Yes, I think Dr. Bob thought that way about Jesus. Bill certainly did. In my view, this takes nothing away from Jesus and makes his teaching more relevant. Dr. Bob also emphasized The Sermon On The Mount, 1 Corinthians 13, and the Book of James as being particularly important to us.”[18]
Important as general spiritual principles, perhaps, but not as words from the God of the Bible.

Author Glen C. notes that Dr. Bob’s AA homegroup (roughly between 1939-1940) emphasized the following passages in the Bible: ‘Sermon on the Mount’ (Matthew 5-7), the letter of James, 1 Corinthians 13, and Psalms 23 and 91. These “were especially useful for AA purposes because none of them required the newcomer to believe in the divinity of Christ or that Salvation could be found only by praying to Jesus.”[19] (Emphasis mine)

Some years ago Dick B., after convincing thousands that AA’s 12 Steps are Christian in origin, wrote, “You may, as I did for quite some time, fail to appreciate or study the effect on AA ‘theology’ of the ideas of William James, Ralph Waldo Trine, Emmet Fox, and others.”[20]

Having admitted Emmet Fox’s heretical influence, this author should not have written one more book about AA’s alleged Christian origin.

Dick B.’s latest book is ‘The Conversion of Bill W.,’ a sadly misleading title considering everything AA cofounder Bill Wilson was involved in. In experiments in the 1950s, hoping alcoholics could be helped by LSD, Bill Wilson stated, “It is a generally acknowledged fact in spiritual development that ego reduction makes the influx of God’s grace possible. If, therefore, under LSD we can have a temporary reduction, so we can better see where we are going—well, that might be of some help. The goal might become clearer.”[21]

Call me legalistic, but LSD to facilitate “the influx of God’s grace” doesn’t sound all that Biblical.

Wilson’s explanation for choosing the triangle within the circle as AA’s symbol is equally pagan. In ‘Alcoholics Anonymous Comes Of Age,’ he writes, “That we have chosen this symbol is perhaps no mere accident. The priests and seers of antiquity regarded the circle enclosing the triangle as a means of warding off spirits of evil, and AA’s circle of Recovery, Unity, and Service has certainly meant all that to us and much more.”[22]

He also “felt it would be unwise to have an allegiance to any one religious sect. He felt AA’s usefulness was worldwide, and contained spiritual principles that members of any and every religion could accept, including the Eastern religions.”[23]

Somewhere, somehow, we must examine the 12 Step program in light of Scripture. We must take Paul’s admonitions about a false gospel seriously. (Galatians 1:6-9) We are being offered a wonderful mission field, if only we can understand neither AA nor the 12 Steps are from Jesus Christ.

It is also time we stop accepting that one or both AA cofounders were Christians. Clearly, they were not.

THE LORD DELIVERED ME
June 6, 2008

Friday of the Ninth Week in Ordinary Time
Reading
2 Tm 3:10-17

You have followed my teaching, way of life,
purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, persecutions,
and sufferings, such as happened to me
in Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra,
persecutions that I endured.
Yet from all these things the Lord delivered me.
In fact, all who want to live religiously in Christ Jesus
will be persecuted.
But wicked people and charlatans will go from bad to worse,
deceivers and deceived.
But you, remain faithful to what you have learned and believed,
because you know from whom you learned it,
and that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures,
which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation
through faith in Christ Jesus.
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching,
for refutation, for correction,
and for training in righteousness,
so that one who belongs to God may be competent,
equipped for every good work.

Responsorial Psalm
119:157, 160, 161, 165, 166, 168

R. (165a) O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.
Though my persecutors and my foes are many,
I turn not away from your decrees.
R. O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.
Permanence is your word’s chief trait;
each of your just ordinances is everlasting.
R. O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.
Princes persecute me without cause
but my heart stands in awe of your word.
R. O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.
Those who love your law have great peace,
and for them there is no stumbling block.
R. O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.
I wait for your salvation, O LORD,
and your commands I fulfill.
R. O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.
I keep your precepts and your decrees,
for all my ways are before you.
R. O Lord, great peace have they who love your law.

Gospel
Mk 12:35-37

As Jesus was teaching in the temple area he said,
“How do the scribes claim that the Christ is the son of David?
David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, said:
The Lord said to my lord,
‘Sit at my right hand
until I place your enemies under your feet.’
David himself calls him ‘lord’;
so how is he his son?”
The great crowd heard this with delight.

I, MICKY, AM THE HOLY ONE OF GOD.

ACTS 26:18 to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and
a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'

I, MICKY, AM THE TRUTH & BEAUTY THAT SURROUNDS THE LORD.

SATAN

GEN 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the
LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not
eat from any tree in the garden'?"

4 "You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman.

5 "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you
will be like God, knowing good and evil."

14 So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this,
"Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will
crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.

15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your
offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel."

1SA 16:14 Now the Spirit of the LORD had departed from Saul, and an evil
spirit from the LORD tormented him.

2SA 23:6 But evil men are all to be cast aside like thorns, which are not
gathered with the hand.

7 Whoever touches thorns uses a tool of iron or the shaft of a spear; they
are burned up where they lie."

1KI 22:22 "'By what means?' the LORD asked. "'I will go out and be a lying
spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,' he said. "'You will succeed in
enticing him,' said the LORD. 'Go and do it.'

1CH 21:1 Satan rose up against Israel and incited David to take a census
of Israel.

JOB 1:6 One day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and
Satan also came with them.

7 The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the
LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it."

9 "Does Job fear God for nothing?" Satan replied.

10 "Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything
he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and
herds are spread throughout the land.

11 But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will
surely curse you to your face."

12 The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, everything he has is in your
hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger." Then Satan went out
from the presence of the LORD.

2:3 Then the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job?
There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who
fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you
incited me against him to ruin him without any reason."

4 "Skin for skin!" Satan replied. "A man will give all he has for his own
life.

5 But stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will
surely curse you to your face."

6 The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, he is in your hands; but you
must spare his life."

7 So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and afflicted Job with
painful sores from the soles of his feet to the top of his head.

9:24 When a land falls into the hands of the wicked, he blindfolds its
judges. If it is not he, then who is it?

PSA 109:6 Appoint an evil man to oppose him; let an accuser stand at his
right hand.

ZEC 3:1 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel
of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him.

2 The LORD said to Satan, "The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD, who has
chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from
the fire?"

MAT 4:1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by
the devil.

2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.

3 The tempter came to him and said, "If you are the Son of God, tell these
stones to become bread."

4 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but
on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'"

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the
highest point of the temple.

6 "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. For it is
written: "'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift
you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a
stone.'"

7 Jesus answered him, "It is also written: 'Do not put the Lord your God
to the test.'"

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the
kingdoms of the world and their splendor.

9 "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship
me."

10 Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship
the Lord your God, and serve him only.'"

11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

12:24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, "It is only by
Beelzebub, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons."

29 "Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man's house and carry off his
possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can rob his
house.

43 "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places
seeking rest and does not find it.

13:19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not
understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his
heart. This is the seed sown along the path.

30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the
harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned;
then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'"

38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the
kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one,

39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the
age, and the harvesters are angels.

16:18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my
church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

25:41 "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are
cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

MAR 3:22 And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said,
"He is possessed by Beelzebub! By the prince of demons he is driving out
demons."

23 So Jesus called them and spoke to them in parables: "How can Satan
drive out Satan?

24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

26 And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end
has come.

LUK 4:2 where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing
during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry.

6 And he said to him, "I will give you all their authority and splendor,
for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to.

10:18 He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.

11:15 But some of them said, "By Beelzebub, the prince of demons, he is
driving out demons."

21 "When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions
are safe.

22 But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the
armor in which the man trusted and divides up the spoils.

13:16 Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has
kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from
what bound her?"

22:31 "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.

53 Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a
hand on me. But this is your hour--when darkness reigns."

JOH 8:38 I am telling you what I have seen in the Father's presence, and
you do what you have heard from your father."

41 You are doing the things your own father does." "We are not
illegitimate children," they protested. "The only Father we have is God
himself."

44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your
father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the
truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native
language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

12:31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this
world will be driven out.

13:2 The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted
Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus.

27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. "What you are
about to do, do quickly," Jesus told him,

14:30 I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world
is coming. He has no hold on me,

16:11 and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now
stands condemned.

ACT 5:3 Then Peter said, "Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your
heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some
of the money you received for the land?

13:10 "You are a child of the devil and an enemy of everything that is
right! You are full of all kinds of deceit and trickery. Will you never
stop perverting the right ways of the Lord?

26:18 to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from
the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and
a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'

ROM 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The
grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

1CO 7:5 Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time,
so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so
that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

2CO 2:11 in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware
of his schemes.

4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they
cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image
of God.

6:15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer
have in common with an unbeliever?

11:3 But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's
cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure
devotion to Christ.

14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.

15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of
righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.

12:7 To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly
great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of
Satan, to torment me.

EPH 2:2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world
and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work
in those who are disobedient.

4:27 and do not give the devil a foothold.

6:11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against
the devil's schemes.

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the
rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil
comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done
everything, to stand.

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with
the breastplate of righteousness in place,

15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel
of peace.

16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you
can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

COL 1:13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought
us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,

2:15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public
spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

1TH 2:18 For we wanted to come to you--certainly I, Paul, did, again and
again--but Satan stopped us.

3:5 For this reason, when I could stand it no longer, I sent to find out
about your faith. I was afraid that in some way the tempter might have
tempted you and our efforts might have been useless.

2TH 2:9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work
of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders,

1TI 1:20 Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over
to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.

3:6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall
under the same judgment as the devil.

7 He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not
fall into disgrace and into the devil's trap.

5:15 Some have in fact already turned away to follow Satan.

2TI 2:26 and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap
of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

HEB 2:14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their
humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of
death--that is, the devil--

JAM 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will
flee from you.

1PE 5:8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around
like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your
brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

2PE 2:4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to
hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment;

1JO 2:13 I write to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from
the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the
evil one. I write to you, dear children, because you have known the Father.

3:8 He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been
sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to
destroy the devil's work.

10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of
the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God;
nor is anyone who does not love his brother.

12 Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his
brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and
his brother's were righteous.

5:18 We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who
was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him.

JUD 1:6 And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but
abandoned their own home--these he has kept in darkness, bound with
everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.

9 But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil
about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring a slanderous accusation
against him, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"

REV 2:9 I know your afflictions and your poverty--yet you are rich! I know
the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue
of Satan.

10 Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil
will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution
for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you
the crown of life.

13 I know where you live--where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true
to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, even in the days of
Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city--where
Satan lives.

24 Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her
teaching and have not learned Satan's so-called deep secrets (I will not
impose any other burden on you):

3:9 I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be
Jews though they are not, but are liars--I will make them come and fall
down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.

9:11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in
Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.

12:3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with
seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads.

9 The great dragon was hurled down--that ancient serpent called the devil,
or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and
his angels with him.

10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have come the salvation
and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ.
For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and
night, has been hurled down.

11 They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their
testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.

12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to
the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled
with fury, because he knows that his time is short."

20:1 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the
Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain.

2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan,
and bound him for a thousand years.

3 He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep
him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended.
After that, he must be set free for a short time.

4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to
judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their
testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped
the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or
their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were
ended.) This is the first resurrection.

6 Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The
second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of
Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.

7 When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison

8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth-
-Gog and Magog--to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand
on the seashore.

9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of
God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and
devoured them.

10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning
sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be
tormented day and night for ever and ever.

I, MICKY, AM THE HOLY ONE OF GOD.
