Prince of the power of the air
And no wonder, even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.2Corinthians 11:14
King James Version (KJV)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
The serpent was more clever than all the wild animals the LORD God had made. He asked the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must never eat the fruit of any tree in the garden'?"
2 The woman answered the snake, "We're allowed to eat the fruit from any tree in the garden 3 except the tree in the middle of the garden. God said, 'You must never eat it or touch it. If you do, you will die!'" 4"You certainly won't die!" the snake told the woman. 5 God knows that when you eat it your eyes will be opened. You'll be like God, knowing good and evil." 6 The woman saw that the tree had fruit that was good to eat, nice to look at, and desirable for making someone wise. Notice the serpent was tempting Eve with "Knowledge & Wisdom"
When one absorbs "the things of the world" it is not the things that will harm them but the spirit attached and the system it belongs to. The Hebrew word for Serpent is "nacash" it means enchanter, whisperer of incantations, to cast spell" It was the lie "Did God really say, 'You must never eat the fruit of any tree in the garden'? That she received that gave entrance, thus permission for his demonic power to alter her truth! For we know God gave permission to eat from all but the tree of 'good & evil."

Too many believe this "Spiritual Battle" is not real and experiential in their lives. They give mental assent and intellectual "amen!" to this reality but can not "cast out devils" operate in the gifts where God's supernatural divine power manifested, takes their faith, from their mind into actual practical use in saving souls from the "fire" and pulling down 'stronghold's" in their own minds that hinder further spiritual growth and anointing.
1And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2Wherein in time past ye the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
" walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air," in other words as Satan controlled your heart and mind by the lies and deceptive spirits of his that had abode in and comprised your thought life, kept you captive and dead to God in sin. John writes repeatedly of "the prince of this world" (12:31; 14:30; 16:11). In his Epistle he describes him as "he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4)and matches against him the Spirit of truth who indwells believers. "The whole world," John says, "lieth in the evil one" (5:19). He is the rebellious 'cosmocrator', world ruler-a word which, however, appears only once, used in the plural of his lieutenants, the "world rulers of this darkness" (Eph. 6:12).
This WORLD "Cosmos" is according to the Prince of the Power of the Air...Satan's. The Bible opens with God's creation of the heavens and the earth. It does not say that he created the world in the sense that we are discussing it now. Through the Bible the meaning of "the world" undergoes a development, and it is only in the New. Testament (though perhaps to a lesser extent already in the Psalms and some of the Prophets) that "the world" comes to have its full spiritual significance. We can readily see the reason for this development. Before the Fall of man, the world existed only in the sense of the earth, the people on the earth, and the things on the earth. As yet there was no cosmos, no "world," in the sense of a constituted order. With the Fall, however, Satan brought on to this earth the order which he himself had conceived, and with that began the world system of which we are speaking. Originally our physical earth had no connection with "the world" in this sense of a Satanic system, nor indeed had man; but Satan took advantage of man's sin, and of the door this threw open to him, to introduce into the earth the organization which he had set himself to establish. From that point of time this earth was in "the world," and man was in "the world." So we may say that before the Fall there was an earth; after the Fall there was a "world"; at the Lord's return there will be a kingdom. Just as the world belongs to Satan, so the Kingdom belongs to our Lord Jesus. Moreover it is this Kingdom that displaces and that will displace the world. When the "Stone not made with hands" shatters man's proud image, then the kingdom of this world will "become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ" (Dan. 2:44, 45; Rev. 11:15).
Politics, education, literature, science, art, law, commerce, music-such are the things that constitute the cosmos, and these are things that we meet daily. Subtract them and the world as a coherent system ceases to be. In studying the history of mankind we have to acknowledge marked progress in each of these departments. The question however is: In what direction is this "progress" tending? What is the ultimate goal of all this development? At the end, John tells us, antichrist will arise and will set up his own kingdom in this world (1 John 2:18, 22; 4:3; 2 John 7; Rev. 13). That is the direction of this world's advance. Satan is utilizing the material world, the men of the world, the things that are in the world, to head everything up eventually in the kingdom of antichrist. At that hour the world system will have reached its zenith; and at that hour every unit of it will be revealed to be anti-Christian.
And we have arrived! The internet is this COSMOS condensed, and full of Spiritual Wickedness as never before!
There is No Time & SPACE in the SPIRITUAL REALM!
What you are reading , studying, watching and listening to brings every spirit involved into your life!
1 John 4:1-6
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. 4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
Very important! "he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error."
John is referring to hearing THE APOSTLES DOCTRINE!
When engaging in bible debate concerning truth, do not get pulled in by these spirits that will not hear Truth! Titus 3: 9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. 10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
Stop trying to "win these demons" they will WIN YOU! You will not have the "Covering of the Word" if you continue going after these familiar spirits.
Titus 3:10 A man that is an heretick [141 hairetikos] after the first and second admonition reject; Give them Biblical admonition twice...your done!
“And outside are fornicators, murderers, idol worshipers, the defiled, sorcerers and all seers and workers of lies.”
