The Puppetmaster Rules!

One of the most misunderstood doctrines of the word of God is the teaching that is found in the Bible concerning families. God shows us and demonstrates to us that there is really only one physical family of man. The family of man is the one that we all belong to - the human family. All mankind has descended from the union between Adam and Eve. Then later in the history of man God had to bring His judgment upon man by the worldwide flood spoken of in Genesis. This flood destroyed all mankind except Noah and his family. The entire human family is descended from the eight human beings saved by the ark which Noah built. There is no truth to the non-biblical teaching of "different races of people." The lie of "different races of people" is a teaching that has been used for oppression and control for generations. Even 'Christians' have accepted this lie and have helped to perpetuate it. This comes from a basic misunderstanding of the word of God. People who don't allow God's word to mature and maintain their world view are susceptible to many false teachings. We see this in the many false cults and false teachers in our world. They develop and teach their little pet doctrines ignoring the whole counsel of the word of God. They refuse to study the word of God correctly, relying upon outside sources, written and spoken, to feed them their pabulum of deceit and lies.

God's word teaches us clearly that we have one physical father and mother – Adam and Eve.
Genesis 3:20 And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
Now if Eve 'was the mother of all living' then obviously Adam was the father of all living.
1 Corinthians 15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Acts 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

Even if you don't understand all the teachings of those past few verses you should be able to see that the teaching of the Bible is clear-we are all physical descendants of Adam and Eve, and then through the family of Noah. Therefore, we are all part of the family of man physically. Some have swerved into this truth when certain groups of people call themselves "brothers in arms" for example. Some say, "Am I my brother's keeper?" using a portion of the Bible to try to teach their understanding of our relationship to each other.

Some say, "Hey, man, how you doing, my brother?" to someone that they just met, claiming relationship based upon a certain color of skin or ethnicity. It is true that we are all related and therefore are brothers and sisters physically. I sometimes use this truth in my teachings on the subject of creation and evolution. The nonsense of "different races of people" stems from the evolutionary lie.

However, there is another great truth taught in the word of God-there is a spiritual part of man that must be born again.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

The great majority of mankind has no concept of this truth. We see this in the constant effort to make man feel and look good in the sight of others. In the advertising world everything is predicated upon trying to reach the physical appearance of men and women. Where is the desire to reach the spirit of man? It is virtually not found anywhere in our schools, our politics, our society at any level. It is as if the spirit of man does not exist. But, that is not the teaching of the word of God. Jesus was always trying to reach the soul and spirit of man. His words were full of great spiritual truths which His listeners often misunderstood.

John 9:39-41 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.
In this portion of scripture Jesus reproves the religious leaders of the day because of their spiritual blindness. They were not willing to even consider the spiritual side of the matter. In Peter's writings God reproves man for being willingly ignorant of the truth of God's word concerning the subject of special creation by the word of God.
2 Peter 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

However, there is another great truth concerning families. There are two great spiritual families in this world, God's family and Satan's family. The amazing ability of Satan to disguise and distort this truth has led to some of the most incredible lies being told in every arena of life. The Bible is clear – you are either part of the Devil's family or part of God's family.

Ephesians 2:1-3 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
1 Chronicles 17:9 Also I will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste them any more, as at the beginning,
Isaiah 57:4 Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood,
Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
Colossians 3:5-7 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
1 John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

As you can see, hopefully, the Bible teaches quite clearly that there are two families of people in this world-the children of the devil, and the children of God. How does on enter each of these families? By Birth.

We are automatically born into the family of man physically and spiritually. We must be born again to enter into God's spiritual family.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
The kingdom of God is a spiritual kingdom which can only be entered upon the new birth, or as Jesus states, Ye must be born again.

We are often confronted with groups of people doing or being involved in what has become known as "conspiracy theories."

From Wikipedia:
A secret society is a social organization which requires its members to conceal certain activities—such as rites of initiation or club ceremonies—from outsiders. Members may be required to conceal or deny their membership, and are often sworn to hold the society's secrets by an oath. The term "secret society" is often used to describe fraternal organizations that may have secret ceremonies, but is also commonly applied to organizations ranging from the common and innocuous (collegiate fraternities) to mythical organizations described in conspiracy theories as immensely powerful, with self-serving financial or political agendas, global reach, and often satanic beliefs.

The Bilderbergers, the Skull and Bones Society, the KKK, the New World Order, etc., etc., etc., There is literally an alphabet soup of these secret societies with each one having an agenda that is remarkably similar. This has led folks to propose a man sourced plethora of "conspiracy theories." There was even an entertaining movie made some years ago entitled, "Conspiracy Theory."

I will state without hesitation and with great confidence, There is no man made conspiracy. The reason that there are similarities between these multitudes of secret societies is because of their common father and source-the devil. He orchestrates, directs and controls the lost spiritual world of mankind. He has legions of helpers as we can see from the teachings of the Bible.
Ephesians 2:2-3 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Mark 5:9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

Hence, the graphic that adorns the top of this article. Certainly politicians are definitely being manipulated by their spiritual father, but every aspect of our society today is being manipulated by this spiritual 'daddy.' The Bible uses many different names for this real person; Apollyon, Satan, the Devil, Beelzebub, the god of this world, prince of the power of the air, etc., etc. Most of these names are unknown to the "children of this world." The episode found in Mark 5 speaks of a man who was demon possessed which is the case with many of the devil's children, but not all. Most are just manipulated or influenced to do his will. Mankind has three major spiritual enemies, the world, the flesh and the devil. The devil uses these spiritual enemies of man to accomplish his will. This little pamphlet is an attempt to reveal some tactics used by the master deceiver and trickster.

He is what I call, "The Puppetmaster." This is term that has been used for years to describe one who makes and controls puppets. I think that this is an apt description of the activities of the Devil himself. He knows the intimate activities of mankind, and he uses men and women to manipulate and destroy what is good and right and decent in our world. One of his names, Abaddon or Apollyon, means destroyer.
Revelation 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

There is nothing good about the activities of the destroyer. He causes pain, disease, destruction and even death. We can be thankful that, although he is powerful and has a great army helping him, he is not omnipotent. God is the only all powerful person in the universe, and the devil is subject to God's will.
Job 1:12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.

The only way to escape being controlled or manipulated by this evil genius and his legion of helpers is to be born again.
John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Then you move from Satan's family and you become part of God's family. Have you been born again? Has there been a time in your life when you have repented of your sins and trusted Jesus Christ the Lord as your personal Saviour? If not, why not leave the Devil's family and join the family of God?

Who's Your Daddy?
