How God Uses Evil to Perfect Us

Most Christians are painfully aware of the world system’s heavy thumb pinning them down with oppressive taxes, intrusive regulations, and the invisible chains of political correctness.

However, we as God’s children here on earth must understand how our Father has set up and ordered the operation of the world system. Code name for the world system: Mystery Babylon the Great.

The prophet Daniel, a captive in Babylon, is enlightened by God in a “night vision.” You know the story in chapter 2. King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream and could not remember it, much less its interpretation. Daniel’s vision not only gave the dream and interpretation for the king of that era, but also instructs us about the world system in our day.

First, we learn from Yahweh’s prophet that He is sovereign, for “wisdom and might” are His, and His name is blessed forever. He “changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings. He gives wisdom unto the wise and knowledge to them that know understanding. He reveals the deep and secret things. He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him.” It is through this that God “has made known…the king’s matter” (2: 20-23).

That is some weighty knowledge right there. We need to stop a moment and meditate on this. Sometimes we are all like butterflies flitting from flower to flower, sampling knowledge like nectar. We are so busy in this Information Age that we rarely pause to savor the knowledge.

What did Daniel learn from the night vision? He learned that God is sovereign; He can do anything He wants with His creation and creatures. God puts some of His human beings on thrones, and He overthrows some of those kings that He has ordained to rule over others. God does that. God is the source of all wisdom and might, and He gives wisdom and knowledge to some. He reveals secrets and mysteries—even the mysteries of what is taking place right now in this present evil world. He reveals secrets about His government and how the world system, which is Satan’s kingdom, interacts with His kingdom.

Some readers recoiled at “Satan’s kingdom.” But those are not my words; they are Christ’s words. “If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand?” (Luke 11: 18). Satan is the “god of this world” (2 Cor. 4: 4). Or could we say, “The king of this world system”? Satan is a little “k” king. And one of the things that we have just learned from Daniel is that Yahweh sets up kings, and He takes them down. Satan is one of the kings that our Father is taking down. But Satan is also one of the kings that God has set up.

The Revelation Contained in Daniel 2

The king’s dream and the interpretation thereof shows God setting up and removing Satan, the king of this world system. The dream’s interpretation shows “what shall be in the latter days” (Dan. 2: 28). “Thou, O king, saw and behold a great image” with a golden head, chest and arms of silver, with thighs of brass and iron legs. “Thou saw till that a stone was cut out without hands which smote the image…and the stone…became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.” All of these body parts represent world empires that will all come down in the latter days. The stone kingdom is the Kingdom of God headed by the Stone that the builders rejected.

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (2: 44).

God is in the process of setting up His kingdom and will bring down the world system and establish Christ as King upon the throne of the Kingdom of God. This is what it is all about.

But Why Must We Have a Satanic World System?

Many Christians do not understand that God creates evil. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil…Isa. 45: 7. He has a purpose for the trials and tribulations that we endure in this life—globally, nationally and personally. So we are not to think that our trials and hardships are a strange thing that is happening to us (I Peter 4: 12).

All this is explained in the parable of the tares in the field. The tares are the children of the devil in the earth, and we are to let them grow up with the wheat, the children of God. At harvest time God will gather up the evil ones (Matt. 13: 24-30, 36-43). But in the meantime, we need to understand that evil is part of His plan. I know; it is a tough one. But God said that His thoughts are not our thoughts, nor His ways our ways [For more on this, read the following: https://immortalityroad.wordpress.com/2011/01/07/parable-of-the-tares-in-the-field-exposing-the-rulers-of-the-darkness-of-this-world-part-i-conversations-with-the-seer/ This is in Chapter 35 of my new book The Royal Destiny of God’s Elect available free with free shipping to those who send me your mailing address to wayneman5@hotmail.com ].

Knowing that God is using Satan and the evilness in the world to perfect His children is a gigantic piece of knowledge that will open up the scriptures to us.

We simply must understand how our Father has set up and ordered the world system’s operations. God is sovereign and controls the darkness and the light for His own purpose. And that purpose is to reproduce Himself. This is the theme of the new book mentioned above.

Many get angry with the world system. They get mad at the school board, the teachers, the mayor and city council, the police and sheriff, and even state and federal officials. The anger and frustration is vain and ill-conceived. For all of these offices are part of the world system which has been ordained by our Father.

Of course, the world government is not righteous; it is not the Kingdom of God. However, when we resist their authority over us—that God has ordained—we are resisting God. “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves” (Rom. 13: 1-2 NIV). Paul understood God’s sovereignty and that He was in complete control.

He urges us to pay our taxes and “owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loves another has fulfilled the law” (13: 8). Christ said that He came not to destroy the law, but to fulfill it (Matt. 5: 17). He does that by sowing the seed of agape love into our hearts. And through His love in us, we no longer break the 10 Commandment Law (Rom. 13: 9-14).

Yet, some begin to despise the “powers that be,” and then it turns into the purple shroud of vengeance. And some young Christians become infected and are overcome in the spiritual struggle, not knowing how low they have fallen. And they have forgotten the admonition, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Rom. 12: 21). It is this overcoming evil that develops His love and forgiveness in our hearts. As we grow in agape love within, then Christ’s Spirit grows and matures in us, “until Christ be formed in us.”

We are the sons and daughters of God. We are destined to be exactly like Him. Hence, our Master’s words: “Love your enemies” and pray for them. For when a Christian gets caught up in condemning another, he forgets the truer lesson here. He forgets that God is the supreme Power. It is God who allows rulers in the world system to rule over us—for now. God has given the various rulers of the world system power to create debt, and they dictate how much we own and at what interest rate.

On a personal level, it works the same. When we don’t forgive our wife, husband, children, relatives, friends and neighbors for slighting us, then they rule over our spirit. Until we forgive, they are our master. But when we forgive, agape love develops in us, and we are one step closer to being like Christ.

God wants us to be like Him. “Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do,” Christ said. He spread love to his enemies as well as to His friends. He likened it to the Father raining down the life-giving showers of love upon the just and the unjust (Mt. 5: 43-48).

When we love and forgive all, we are fulfilling the Law by loving our neighbor as our selves. When we walk in this love, we awake out of a spiritual sleep. Paul likens this to throwing off the works of darkness” and putting on “the armor of light” (Rom. 13: 12). Flowing agape love to others becomes a shield that protects us from the arrows of deception hurled at us by the “god of this world.” However, the devil is not to be feared; he is just doing his sinister job. He has but a short time left. I think the devil still doesn’t know that he is helping us “go on unto perfection” (Heb. 6: 1).            Kenneth Wayne Hancock

God Hates Certain Things…AND Certain People

God hates certain things.  “These six things the LORD hates; yes seven are an abomination to Him.  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet swift running to evil, a false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren” (Proverbs 6: 16-19).  These are all, of course, attributes of evil people.

The word “hate” in Hebrew is sane, #H 8130.  This same word is used when God states, “I loved Jacob, and I hated Esau, and laid his…heritage waste…” (Malachi 1: 2-3).

In John 8: 44, the Savior calls the Pharisees the children of the devil. “Ye are of your father the devil,” Christ told them. Ironically, they were  the most religious people in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago.  They professed God, spoke about Him all the time, yet they were not His children. To the contrary, they had a different origin–different spiritual genes–a different generation from a different progenitor.

This theme of two completely different spiritual seeds is found back in the seed book–Genesis.  “Two nations are in thy womb and two manner of people,” Yahweh said to Rebekah, referring to Esau/Edom and Jacob/Israel.  God would later say, “Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated” (Gen. 25: 23; Rom. 9:13).  Interestingly, the descendants of Esau/Edom would convert in 125 B.C. to Judaism and become the Pharisees and chief priests and rulers that Christ would encounter a century later.  “They were again subdued by John Hyrcanus (c. 125 BC), who forcibly converted them to Judaism and incorporated them into the Jewish nation” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edom).

They took over Jerusalem religiously, politically and economically.  They were the ones who Christ rebuked when He told them, “You are of your father the devil.”  To this day, Esau strives through his offspring to get back the birthright that he sold in Genesis.  Esau’s children today are still masquerading as God’s chosen people, but their end is disastrous (the whole book of the prophet Obadiah).

The Spirit of God spoke of Esau’s demise through the prophet Malachi about 400 B.C., some 1,400 years after Esau and Jacob were born!  God has a long memory.  He evidently does not forget His own words.

Actually, all of us “spend our years as a tale that is told.”  It is all written in the Lamb’s book of life.  “Jacob have I loved,” God said of His true chosen people, who would be a company of many nations, the most blessed nations in the earth.  The modern day Israeli nation cannot fulfill the prophecies that both Jacob and Moses spoke over the twelve sons of Jacob in Genesis 49 and Deuteronomy 33.  There is no way because they are only one tiny desert nation, totally dependent on the United States of America for their survival, and have been for 65 years.  They are interlopers and are destined for a disastrous fall, according to the word of God.

“Ye serpents.  Ye generation of vipers!” were the words Christ pronounced upon them during His earthly ministry. Nothing has changed.  Past is prologue to the present and the future.  They are still in control of this world’s system, and they think that they have it all wrapped up.

But God has a secret weapon up His sleeve.  He will do “His strange work; and bring to pass His act, His strange act.”  It will be as in Mount Perazim and when God showed His wrath in the valley of Gibeon (Isa. 28: 21). And what happened to their enemies when God did this strange act?  “The LORD (Yahweh) cast down great stones from heaven upon them…and they died: they were more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword” (Joshua 10: 11-13). This anticipates the heavenly bodies of Revelation’s trumpets and vials of wrath when God puts an end to the present world system, Babylon the Great, at the end of the Tribulation Period.

And all of the “merchants of the earth” will mourn when that happens [Think international banking families who monopolize the world’s wealth as in Rev. 18: 11-19]. Then our Savior will return to set up His kingdom and rule right here on earth for 1,000 years of peace. That’s the ticket that His followers have purchased through the fellowship of His sufferings, as they “present their bodies a living sacrifice.”  Only their ticket into His kingdom is not just as spectators, but rather as His family of rulers in the earth–administrators and ambassadors, ruling with Him.      KWH

“Thy Will Be Done in Earth”–The Coming of the Sons of God

     God’s will is to present His Sons to the world at the end of this age.  It is His wish and purpose, and it will be accomplished “in earth as it is in heaven” (see The Will of God–His Wish and Desire at   https://immortalityroad.wordpress.com/2008/02/28/the-will-of-god-his-wish-his-desire/ ). 

     God’s will is His game plan.  He will win.  The Kingdom of Light will overtake and destroy the kingdom of darkness.  Like Gideon’s army, He will use human beings that are weak and powerless in their own eyes.  “Not many mighty” according to the flesh will He use.

     His will is to magify Himself in a body of many sons and daughters.  He is the Seed, and there will be a great harvest of “many sons unto glory.” 

     This is what the scriptures are all about–the overcoming of evil, which Yahweh created (Isa. 45:7), by humans who know they need Him to overcome the adversary the devil.

     Through this victory of good over evil, He will receive great glory as He helps His body of sons and daughters do this.  His name will be honored and glorified.  All will know that Yahshua means Yah Is the Savior.  And He shall enact what His very name means as He saves us from destruction in the latter days.  Yah will deliver us out of the ashes of a smoldering world system.

     Christ wanted us to think about this and pray to Yahweh with this understanding.  This is why  He included “the Father’s will” and how it is coming to pass in the earth as it is in heaven.

     But to comprehend His will, one must understand and believe pre-destination and pre-determination.  In short, they mean having a destiny lined out, determined, and known before it takes place. 

     Thus it is with the sons of God.  Being in in His heart, their destiny is all written out in  heaven before it takes place here on earth.  It is scripted.  The book of life has been penned in heaven.  He is the “Author …of our faith (Heb. 12:2).  

     Many will reject this truth because it is not politically correct.  It disagrees with the tenets of secular humanism, the sly opiate that dopes humans into thinking that because they exist, then they must be the center of the universe.  But “my thoughts are not your thoughts,” warns Yahweh.

     The apostle Paul knew that he was an apostle only  because God had willed it.  He starts many of his epistles saying that he is an apostle “by the will of God” (I Cor. 1:1; II Cor. 1:1; Eph. 1:1; Col. 1:1).  He understood that God had ordained and pre-determined him to be “conformed to the image of His Son.”

     Make no mistake about it.  God’s will includes Him purposing in Himself to insure that He multiplies Himself through many offspring. 

     We are “the called according to His purpose.  For whom he did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Rom. 8:28-29). 

     His will is His purpose in the earth, which is predicated on what He wrote down in the book written before the foundation of the world.  He chooses them because He knew them before, like  He did the prophet Jeremiah (1:5).  He gives these elect a destiny to become a son before they get here on earth. 

     These He calls and justifies through the cross experience.  They grow up spiritually until sanctified.  And finally, He glorifies them.  This process of spiritual growth is encripted in several key scriptural phrases that come in “threes”: “the blade, the ear, full corn in the ear;” “children, young men, fathers;” 30, 60, and 100 fold fruit (Mt. 13). 

     Christ spoke plainly about the Father’s will.  “And this is the will of Him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that He has given me, but raise them up at the last day.”  He promised us that He would raise us up at the last day!  He would raise up God’s sons; none would be left behind; none would be forgotten, whose names were written in the book of life.

     So, when we pray, Christ want us to have the Father’s will in mind about the coming of the sons of God, encapsulated by these words: “Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”  KWH

The Old Serpent Deceiveth the Whole World

    The whole world is deceived, according to the Bible.   “Satan deceives the whole world” (Rev. 12:9).  Satan not only deceives individuals, but has deceived whole nations (Rev. 20:3).  Consequently, leaning on this world system in any way for guidance, truth, or sustenance is futile and dangerous. 

    So, what are we to do?  We must examine ourselves in the light of the written word to see if we are really in the true faith of God.  We must “purge out the old leaven,” getting rid of old worldly concepts and ideas that Satan has used to deceive the people and nations of the world.

    Since the world and its nations are deceived, we can look at what they support and see what is suspect and needs to be gotten rid of.  For example, look at our holidays.  The world system supports Halloween among others, and all are blatantly pagan (  www.1911encyclopedia.org/Hallowe’en ).   

    You can have Hallowe’en in schools and yet your children cannot pray there.  You cannot teach creationism or intelligent design and yet, children are encouraged to celebrate Valentine’s Day, which was a Roman fertility and purification festival held on the very same day, February 14 ( “february.” Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary. MICRA, Inc. 02 Jul. 2008. <Dictionary.com http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/february> ). 

    Our government is deceived and corrupt.  It has left its first love-its Creator.  The original settlers, the Pilgrims, came here to “establish the kingdom of God nation in the earth.”  Now our government has become the servant of a cartel of rich international bankers. 

    Our Congress in 1913 created by law the Federal Reserve System.  It is not “federal” nor a reserve.  Its very name is a lie.  Nor is it “of the people, by the people, or for the people.”  “The Fed” is a private corporation with around 300 shareholders from the richest families of America.  It creates money out of nothing but wood fibers and ink.  Then it lends these created dollars. 

    Our government borrows trillions of these dollars and then it takes our hard-earned money as taxes just to pay the interest on that debt!  And who gets those billions?  The shareholders of the private corporation, the Federal Reserve Bank. 

    Because “the borrower is servant to the lender,” the U.S. government, as well as all governments, is a servant to the rich international bankers, who are running things on the world stage.  The presidents, premiers, prime ministers, congresses, and parliaments of this world are the lap dogs of these internationalists.

    And we the sheeple of this deceived world, drunk on our own self-importance, are being led down the shopping aisles, tempted to get more, buy more, and covet more material things–things that satiate our fleshly senses so that we cannot perceive what is killing us.

    The old serpent, the Devil, has definitely deceived the whole world.  The people are deceived because they don’t know what is going on.  And the nations are deceived because the leaders actually think they are going to get by with going to bed with the rich bankers.

    But a few will see through the lies and sin of this world system, and they will “come out” from it, and they will be separate.  They will be the vanguard of Yahweh’s Kingdom that’s coming soon.       Kenneth Wayne Hancock

“Our Father”–The Father of the Sons and Daughters of God

God is not everyone’s Father.  He is the Creator of all, but not Father of all.  I’m just saying; that’s what the English says.

Christ told the Pharisees, who were very religious, “You seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth…You are of your father the devil…a murderer from the beginning…a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:40:44).

We see, then, two spiritual fathers at work in the earth: “Our Father”  and “your father the devil.”  And to help the sons and daughters of God, Christ left us the salutation in His Blueprint Prayer, “Our Father” to distinguish our Father from their father.  (To read more on them and their father, see “Children of the Wicked One” under “Recent Posts”).

The words, “Our Father,” also signifies an engendering by God, begetting several spiritual offspring.

The LORD (Yahweh in the Hebrew), told the prophet Jeremiah, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee” (Jer. 1:4-5).  God knew Jeremiah before his earthly conception and gestation!  And God chose him and ordained him a prophet before he “came forth out of the womb.”  Jeremiah was “born from above”–begotten by God long before coming to earth.  Jeremiah was in the very heart of God–and so were we, His sons and daughters, before the time of our earthly, fleshly sojourn.

Our Father “has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world” (Eph. 1:4).  He knew us before and has pre-destinated us “to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Rom. 8:29).   He has given us a destiny to be like Christ before the world was ever founded.  This is nothing less that God’s purpose–reproducing Himself.

And so the cycle goes: seedtime and harvest.  God the husbandman has great patience waiting for His children to grow up until they are “conformed to the image of His Son.”  He will endure the “vessels fitted unto destruction” in order to create His “royal priesthood,” His ruling offspring.  This is our destiny, ordered for us by “our Father.”

For make no mistake.  Christ told it like it is.  He warned that in the last days, many will be deceived by false prophets and false teachers who lead the sheep through the wide and broad gate to destruction.  They are wolves in “sheep’s clothing.”  They show themselves as God’s spokesmen, but are really modern day Pharisees, whose father is not “our Father.”

And to the many who are deceived by them Christ warns: “Many will say to me, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:13-23).  They mouthed a bunch of half-truths but didn’t do the will of “our Father which is in heaven” (v. 21).

There is a lot in the phrase “Our Father, which art in heaven.”  We must begin to pray with the understanding of His words.  It is a great privilege to call Him “our Father.”  Not everyone truthfully can.   Kenneth Wayne Hancock

Parable of the Tares in the Field–Children of the Wicked One

Evil has a face–a human face.  Evil has arms and legs, but above all, a cunning mind and a devious heart.

Some faces of evil are obvious.  Those of Hitler, Stalin, Saddam Hussein and other tyrannical butchers come to mind.  But it’s the faces of evil that you pass on the street or see in restaurants or that sit in locked board rooms–those are the ones we must beware of.

And, oh, how our spiritual forefathers warned us of these evil ones.  The apostles and prophets and our Savior Himself warned us of them.

Who are they?  They are called the children of the devil,  “the children of the wicked one,” “false teachers, false prophets,” and rich men “heaping treasure together for the last days” (James 5:3), among many other names.

They are the “tares” in the “Parable of the Tares in the Field.”  We must remember that parables contain the mysteries of God.  Parables are used purposefully to teach God’s elect while hiding those same secrets from the multitudes.

Reading “The Parable of the Tares of the Field” (Matthew 13: 24-30, 37-44) is like viewing the true spiritual history of man through the eye of a satellite camera.  In it we see a landowner (the Son of man) who sows good seed (the children of the kingdom) in his field (the world).  But an enemy (the devil) came and sowed tares (the children of the wicked one) along side the good seed.

The servants notice the tares coming up with the wheat and asks the owner if they should pull up the tares.  He says to let them both grow together until the harvest (the end of the world), so that the good seed won’t get uprooted along with the tares.

And so the harvest comes and the reapers (the angels) put in the sickle.  The wheat (the children of God) are separated from the “children of the wicked one.”  The latter are then taken and destroyed.  The children of the Kingdom inherit all things with their Father.

Point: the wicked one has children; they are in our midst.  Some are common sociopaths without a conscience.  Others are more subtle, working diligently with other rich men for a “one world government.”  They are paving the way for the Anti-Christ to take over the New World Order.  They cry “peace, peace, when there is no peace.”

Peter warns of them in II Peter 2, saying that “while they promise the people liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption” (v. 19).  Jude devotes his whole letter as a warning to be aware of these “children of the wicked one.”  Moses wrote of these who give their hearts and souls to Satan as the seed of the serpent (Genesis 3:15).  Christ told the Pharisees, “You are of your father the devil” (John 8:44).

From Genesis to Revelation, they are there.  We must beware of them because evil strides the earth today.  And evil has a face–a human face.  KWH
