Its very interesting that when God created the table of nations, he fixed the borders of the nations according to the number of the sons of God. Who are these sons no one really knows, but they are in the category called the hosts of heaven.
The nations were given to these sons according to their number as their inheritance, but the Lords inheritance, which he gave himself were the children of Israel.
Its really interesting on how the nations are ruled and governed by supernatural beings, which are called the sons of God, who were allotted the nations for their inheritance.
Its a great profound mystery, that after the flood, God gave all of humanity, except the little nation of Israel, over to the hosts of heaven, who the bible calls the sons of God? Who are these sons, are they the fallen principalities and powers of this age, of which Paul speaks about?
Very little is written on these mysteries. One has to dig deep to get ones head around these mysteries. One needs to be a dedicated student of the scriptures to start to understand these gems of revelation, which are hidden throughout the bible.
It is a pain staking task for one to draw out these deep things. How very few today really have an apprehension of these biblical truths.
Gods full revelation regarding his salvation history with man is only revealed in the bible.
I think the great problem with the so called prophetic movement of today is, they don’t understand their bibles. The crazy stuff they come up with has no scriptural support.
There are so many today getting fooled because of their lack of understanding on what the bible really teaches. Gods full revelation regarding his redemption plan is only found in the bible. If what we say and teach have no scriptural support, then we need to keep our mouths closed.
It takes a lot of work, and hours upon hours, year by year of drawing things out in our studies of the scriptures.
If one is lazy in his studies of the bible, then one will get into all kinds of confusion, which we already are seeing today.
There is no other revelation given, but what is written in scripture regarding the salvation history of God.
The holy spirit always camps out at the bible. If our so called revelations have no biblical support, then one needs to ask oneself, maybe what I’m hearing is false?
And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven. Deuteronomy 4:19
When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, when he divided mankind, he fixed the borders of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God. Deuteronomy 32:8
For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. “The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any of the peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples, but because the Lord loved you and kept the oath which He swore to your forefathers, the Lord brought you out by a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Deuteronomy 7: 6-8
These gods who inherited the nations, who are the rulers of this present age, are they the fallen ones of creation? Were they fallen before God divided up the nations for their inheritance? Did they fall after?
These are deep mysteries, which are very hard to understand. Paul does have a bit to say about it in Romans.
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: Romans 1: 19-26
Paul seems to make the statement that because of all the evil things, which were taking place with humanity, God gave them over to these gods of the nations?
Was this a judgment of God against the sin of man? Then does this mean that the nations were given over to the fallen hosts of heaven because of their sin and rebellion?
Are the nations now living under the consequences of their rebellion against God?
What is the biblical revelation, which the bible teaches, for the reclaiming of the nations?
I believe that everything God has done through Christ is only revealed in the revelation of the Cross of Calvary. When one sees the truth of Christ and him crucified, then one sees true reality.
