Why is there Sin and Suffering?


Who was the first sinner?
"He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil". 1.John 3:8
        
How did the devil (Satan) come to this world?
"And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven". Luke 10:18
        
What kind of being was Satan?
"Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee". Ezekiel 28:14,15
Note:  The "cherub that covereth" is a description of the angel that stood next to the throne of God in heaven (Psalm 80:1). This angel was created perfect and was the most honored of all created beings, until he made himself into a devil by trying to set his own will above the will of God.

What contributed to Satan's fall and rebellion in heaven?
"Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee". Ezekiel 28:17
       
What was Lucifer's ambition?
"How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High". Isaiah 14:12-14
Note: Lucifer was Satan's name before his fall.
        
What happened in heaven after Satan rebelled?
"And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels. And prevailed not neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him". Revelation 12:7-9

To whom did Satan turn with deception after he was expelled from heaven?
"Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat". Genesis 3:1-6
        
What territory does Satan now claim as a result of man's fall?
"And the devil, taking him up into a high mountain, showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it". Luke 4:5,6
        
How does Satan exercise tyranny over mankind?
"So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown". Job 2:7
"And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed... ?" Luke 13:16
        
Why is Satan increasing his efforts to ruin mankind?
"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night". "Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time". Revelation 12:10, 12
        
How did Jesus earn the right to finally destroy the devil?
"He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil". 1.John 3:8
"Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil". Hebrews 2:14
        
How will God ultimately destroy the devil?
"By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more". Ezekiel 28:16-19

We don't know what is going on in this world because we have no clue
as to who the Illuminati are and what they have in mind for you and me:
global power elite Lucifer Rising global power elite
You can't defeat the enemy if you don't know who it is. We simply cannot see
the adversary because our senses have been blinded. In other words, most of us
are programmed to pull the strings for those who enslave us. Solution - read if you have
time, because at school they don't teach how to guard our freedom, neither do they teach
who our enemy is. Read, read Lucifer Rising  by Philip Jones  you owe it  to your family and
children. Stay close to God who made this nation great, not to the Angel of Light (Lucifer) who has
lately gained the ascendancy, who claims to bring peace and love and all sorts of new technologies.
The adherents of this movement believe that peace & love are constantly increasing but in reality we
are getting deeper into wars and hatred every day. False hope abounds, it keeps us pacified, that's
what the enemy wants. Rumors, lies and disinformation are being used to completely subdue us.
We are being told that the cabal of tyrants presently dominating the world is losing on all fronts,
and that soon they will be overcome and arrested, with the good guys (white dragon society,
and other hidden, but powerful groups) taking over and making the world a better place.
Not only that, but a perfect world is envisioned, where everybody has work to make a
decent living, where everybody is happy. Again, these are lies and disinformation
giving us false hope to keep us pacified and peaceful while the cabal of tyrants
is busy putting on the finishing touches to make their oppressive one world
government become reality, at which point most everybody will finally
wake up, to realize that the dreaded New World Order has arrived.
