The Origin of the Counterfeit

 Scripture: Revelation 4 v 1:

"After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me which said, come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter."

John sees a door opening in Heaven which means he is having a strong vision of God's Kingdom, and he hears a voice like the sound of a trumpet saying Come up here. (The first time I heard the audible voice of God I thought it sounded like a megaphone!).

John is caught up to Heaven and sees a throne with One sitting upon it with a glowing rainbow round it. Around the Throne were 24 elders sitting on seats.  This is Jesus together with the 12 patriarchs of the tribes of Israel and the 12 Apostles of the Lamb. John would have seen himself seated there in Spirit.  The Lord Jesus is about to show him the true future for mankind.

When satan fell from Heaven he set up his own kingdom with himself on the throne, and 24 elders. His New Age symbol of the fake 5 coloured rainbow is around his throne. The 24 elders are ruling demons that are the 12 signs of the Zodiac and the 12 months of the year, which are the names of Roman gods.  So if you are into astrology satan is in control of your life and future. The Lord's comment on this can be found in Isaiah 47 v 13:

"Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee." I can actually hear His voice saying these words, heavy with sarcasm and anger; knowing that the diviners cannot save anyone.

Satan cannot originate anything he always takes and twists what God declares as truth to control us if we let him. He twists Godly Prophecy into divination and fortune telling; Miracles into Magic; Love into Lust; Faith into fear; truth into lies. His kingdom is a complete counterfeit of Heaven and very deadly to humans. There are many devious twists and turns that only Jesus knows how to navigate for us so follow Him closely!

When you go to a fortune-teller or psychic medium for knowledge about your life and future you start a fire that will burn you. Their knowledge comes from the one who has sworn to destroy every human being. He got it so right after Adam and Eve were turned by his lying words, that God had to send a flood to wipe them out.

Your visit to the occult world of divination starts a chain reaction that puts demons in charge of every false prophecy they utter. The demons make that bad news happen to prove that the psychic had it right. Someone in your family will die this year is a common false prophecy that satan loves to fulfil. From African witchdoctors to gypsy caravans and crystal balls the results are the same. If you have ever been snared by their words, repent and break that curse through the name of Jesus.  

Prayer: Heavenly Father, when we disobey Your Word and seek idols and fortune tellers to enlighten us we fall into serious problems. You alone know the future and we should only seek this knowledge from you. Please forgive us and break every lying prophecy over our lives.  In Jesus' name. Amen.
