Exalt Oneself?

“You said in your heart,
‘I will ascend to heaven;
I will raise my throne
above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain.
I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High'” Isaiah 14:13-14*

If you have not seen the viral 7 minute video from Open Your Eyes (YouTube), it is a must see. Under siege yet again is the gospel and the Christ of God’s Word, our Saviour, who died for our sins, who said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6). In “new spirituality” movements He is being “replaced” with a Jesus idol. They are downsizing Him from God to just divine, “like you and I.” At least two new movies are coming out this year in the spirit of “The Secret.” One of them is “The Moses Code,” that apparently asks people to claim “I AM” for themselves. People are being urged to claim divinity and god-hood! And that, as God, they can speak anything into being!

It is shocking that anyone would want to repeat the self exalting claims of Satan and the coming antichrist!

“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for (that day will not come) until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshipped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4*

“The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place… nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all.” Daniel 11:36-37*

Love,
Rach

    Rachel, Great piece! Thanks for this. Little by little, God’s divinity is being diminished. I hope we are all paying attention. I’ll check out the video. Blessings…
