God's Divine Council - The Unseen Realm - Michael Heiser Video Seminar

Recently, we have been watching Hebrew Scholar, Dr. Michael Heiser at a great, very eye opening, thought provoking seminar. We also have one of his books called "Unseen Realm" which is the topic of the seminar below. It took him 15 years to write this book, spurred on by reading Psalm 82. As a believer myself for 30 years, I realize how much I read past verses, not digging deeper into what they really mean. With the resources available these days, and thanks to the Dead Sea Scrolls (the Biblical texts), they have been able to grasp the Bible's Words even better. Translating Greek/Hebrew into English definitely can weaken the meaning if no translated accurately. Michael has an incredible insight an heart's desire to explain the meaning of the supernatural realm and Biblical text on the deepest level I have ever heard. His words for some can be controversial,because we have been taught basic Bible doctrines based on human tradition and thought. The best thing to do is watch/read what he has to say and you will gain insight that many of us have never had or considered before.

I have been one of those Christians who believed it was wrong to read extra biblical texts like Enoch, Book of the Giants, and Jasher. Yet these books are referred to in the Bible. No, they are not official canonized Scripture. But they were written and they are used because they have useful information. Again if you want to know more, I suggest listening to the seminar below and/or read his book.
It will change the way you read God's Word.

Here are some verses Michael mentions to help sho God's divine council.

He doesn't need a council, He actually doesn't need anything or anyone to help. He can make decisions Himself, Why does He have a Divine council and the supernatural beings? The supernatural beings are sons of god (small "g". His supernatural family existed before creation on earth.  He likes family, His
[Psa 82:1-8 ESV] 1 A Psalm of Asaph. God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment: 2 "How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah 3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. 4 Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked." 5 They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. 6 I said, "You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; 7 nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince." 8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!
[1Ki 22:19-24 ESV] 19 And Micaiah said, "Therefore hear the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing beside him on his right hand and on his left; 20 and the LORD said, 'Who will entice Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?' And one said one thing, and another said another. 21 Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD, saying, 'I will entice him.' 22 And the LORD said to him, 'By what means?' And he said, 'I will go out, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.' And he said, 'You are to entice him, and you shall succeed; go out and do so.' 23 Now therefore behold, the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets; the LORD has declared disaster for you." 24 Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near and struck Micaiah on the cheek and said, "How did the Spirit of the LORD go from me to speak to you?"

We are children of the free woman...

[Gal 4:19-31 NLT] 19 Oh, my dear children! I feel as if I'm going through labor pains for you again, and they will continue until Christ is fully developed in your lives. 20 I wish I were with you right now so I could change my tone. But at this distance I don't know how else to help you. 21 Tell me, you who want to live under the law, do you know what the law actually says? 22 The Scriptures say that Abraham had two sons, one from his slave wife and one from his freeborn wife. 23 The son of the slave wife was born in a human attempt to bring about the fulfillment of God's promise. But the son of the freeborn wife was born as God's own fulfillment of his promise. 24 These two women serve as an illustration of God's two covenants. The first woman, Hagar, represents Mount Sinai where people received the law that enslaved them. 25 And now Jerusalem is just like Mount Sinai in Arabia, because she and her children live in slavery to the law. 26 But the other woman, Sarah, represents the heavenly Jerusalem. She is the free woman, and she is our mother. 27 As Isaiah said, "Rejoice, O childless woman, you who have never given birth! Break into a joyful shout, you who have never been in labor! For the desolate woman now has more children than the woman who lives with her husband!" 28 And you, dear brothers and sisters, are children of the promise, just like Isaac. 29 But you are now being persecuted by those who want you to keep the law, just as Ishmael, the child born by human effort, persecuted Isaac, the child born by the power of the Spirit. 30 But what do the Scriptures say about that? "Get rid of the slave and her son, for the son of the slave woman will not share the inheritance with the free woman's son." 31 So, dear brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman; we are children of the free woman.

Russ Dizdar Speaks in Knoxville: Shatter The Darkness Video Conference

No, this is not a light hearted subject but nonetheless, it's a very important one for all believers or interested parties to know about. Why? Because we aren't taught about it in most churches yet, it isa very real strategy of our enemy. Satanic ritual abuse is something we have researched for a long time now. No matter how much we hear, it still is difficult to grasp as a reality. But the trusted sources and God's Word are all we need to trust it is true. The more we know, the Christians can pray for these victims of heinous violations against them. Some are purposefully bred t become these victims, some are snatched and some sacrificed. Only the world of those who worship Lucifer in whatever form that may be, consider this horrific behaviour part of what they need to do to fulfill whatever twisted concept they believe in.

Russ Dizdar from Shatter The Darkness (click here)  and click here for Shatter the Darkness - is a favourite Christian speaker who lives what he says. This message was given a year ago and I  watched it 3 times in one day while I worked on my projects at home. Very eye opening, very powerful! Words we may not want to hear, but should hear. 
Watch Here if you wish.

The bulk of contemporary churches these days are not speaking about the spiritual warfare, the creation of programmed individuals, Satanic super soldiers, the Black Awakening,  Satanic Ritual abuse, mind control, the infiltration of churches by these coven members with the intent of causing the destruction of Christian churches and even Christians. And most horrific of all, we don't hear about the numbers of children being used for unimaginable purposes. I know these topics sound foreign to most of us. We didn't know any of this until recent years. But it feels like it is our duty to share what we learn and leave the choice to listen is up to whoever is meant to hear.

But those who die in the LORD will live; their bodies will rise again!

It always helps to encourage one another with God's Word. As each day passes, we are closer to eternity. We can know why we are here and have assurance of salvation. Just wanted to share the following passages to remind myself and those who want to hear.

[2Co 4:3-11 NLT] 3 If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. 4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. 5 You see, we don't go around preaching about ourselves. We preach that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we ourselves are your servants for Jesus' sake. 6 For God, who said, "Let there be light in the darkness," has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. 8 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. 9 We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 10 Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies. 11 Yes, we live under constant danger of death because we serve Jesus, so that the life of Jesus will be evident in our dying bodies.

 [2Co 4:14-18 NLT] 14 We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus, will also raise us with Jesus and present us to himself together with you. 15 All of this is for your benefit. And as God's grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory. 16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don't look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

[Heb 9:27 KJV] 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
[Jhn 14:1-6 NLT] 1 "Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2 There is more than enough room in my Father's home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 4 And you know the way to where I am going." 5 "No, we don't know, Lord," Thomas said. "We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?" 6 Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

[Isa 26:3-5, 9, 19-21 NLT] 3 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! 4 Trust in the LORD always, for the LORD GOD is the eternal Rock. 5 He humbles the proud and brings down the arrogant city. He brings it down to the dust. ... 

[Isa 26:3-5, 9, 19-21 NLT]
9 All night long I search for you; in the morning I earnestly seek for God. For only when you come to judge the earth will people learn what is right. ... 19 But those who die in the LORD will live; their bodies will rise again! Those who sleep in the earth will rise up and sing for joy! For your life-giving light will fall like dew on your people in the place of the dead! 20 Go home, my people, and lock your doors! Hide yourselves for a little while until the LORD's anger has passed. 21 Look! The LORD is coming from heaven to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will no longer hide those who have been killed. They will be brought out for all to see.

[Phl 3: 20-21 NLT]  20 But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. 21 He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.

[Jhn 3:13-21, 27-28 NLT] 13 No one has ever gone to heaven and returned. But the Son of Man has come down from heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life. 16 "For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. 18 "There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God's one and only Son. 19 And the judgment is based on this fact: God's light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. 20 All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. 21 But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants." ... 27 John replied, "No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven. 28 You yourselves know how plainly I told you, 'I am not the Messiah. I am only here to prepare the way for him.'

[Heb 9:27-28 NLT] 27 And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment, 28 so also Christ died once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.

[Jhn 5:21-22, 24 NLT] 21 For just as the Father gives life to those he raises from the dead, so the Son gives life to anyone he wants. 22 In addition, the Father judges no one. Instead, he has given the Son absolute authority to judge, ... 24 "I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.

[Mat 10:26-31 NLT] 26 "But don't be afraid of those who threaten you. For the time is coming when everything that is covered will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all. 27 What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear! 28 "Don't be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 What is the price of two sparrows--one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. 30 And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. 31 So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.

[Phl 1:21-25 NLT] 21 For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better. 22 But if I live, I can do more fruitful work for Christ. So I really don't know which is better. 23 I'm torn between two desires: I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me. 24 But for your sakes, it is better that I continue to live. 25 Knowing this, I am convinced that I will remain alive so I can continue to help all of you grow and experience the joy of your faith.
