The Deadliest Temptation: The Summit of Pride

 

 “Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” (Mt.4:8-10)

 

    Here we see Satan’s deadliest temptation – Pride. The sin of pride which appeals to man’s lust for political power and glory. Satan took Jesus to the top of an exceedingly high Mt. (the summit) in order to give him the feeling of being the king of the mountain.  To give him the feeling of pride and exaltation and loftiness and high-mindedness and lifted up. Jesus was shown all the power and glories of the world’s kingdoms as a “passing-in-review” before his eyes of the sum total of worldly honor. Satan offered him all the power and glory of being Emperor of the World and ruling over the whole world. The summit of political power.

 

   I’ll make you president of the U.S. and you can have ‘summit’ talks with world leaders. Two thousand journalists will report every word you speak and color TV will carry your image worldwide. I’ll put you on the highest political mountain top of the world. I will use all my satanic power to get you elected as president of the U.S., the highest and most powerful office on the face of the earth. It will be the summit of world power and glory – the top of the mountain - the top of the world. Just sidestep Calvary and worship me. After you become President you can take the army and destroy the republic and become an emperor.

 

   Satan saved his deadliest and favorite temptation for last –the sin that caused his fall – the first sin in the universe - the sin of pride. The angel Lucifer became Satan the devil because of pride. In (Is.14:12-15) speaking about Lucifer who is behind the King of Babylon – 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. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”  I will – I will – I will. PrIde – the big I. The center of prIde and sIn is the big I of self. Jesus humbled himself to His death on the cross and said not my will but thine be done. It is written in (Mt.23:12) “And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased: and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.” All Christ-rejecters deliberately hold on to sin and the big I of self-will. They refuse to repent of sin, turn away from their wicked ways and turn to Christ for salvation.

 

   Jesus said “no thanks” to Satan’s temptation of earthly summit glory by sidestepping the cross. But at the end of the great tribulation wrath of God, Jesus will return as King of Kings and World Emperor. It says in (Rev.11:15) “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” Jesus will rule over the whole earth forever as the final world emperor. And he will rule from the mountain top of Mt. Zion in Jerusalem which will be the summit of the whole earth. “And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem” (Is.2:2,3). He shall be paramount ruler of earth forever.

   But presidents Clinton and Bush said to Satan, I’ll take it. I want the summit of power and glory and fame and wealth. And one day soon the Antichrist beast will say yes also. I want the Presidency – I want the summit and from there, as ruler of BabylonUSA, I can rule the world, I can be the paramount one. Hear God’s word about Antichrist, the most proud one. “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” – (2 Thes.2:4). “And the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority” – (Rev.13:2).

   The whole world worships the beast and they worship the devil in him and this is exactly what Christ turned down on the mountain top.

 

   Antichrist, the false pseudo-Christ, will be at the top of the world political power and glory and when he has his “summit talks” he’ll be all alone. He will not share his glory of being worshipped with anyone else. He exalts himself above all people and above all Gods. This will be the last emperor worship on earth spawned by Satan.

 

   But he will only rule over this earth for a short time of a few years. And then Jesus comes back as King of Kings with his army from heaven and crushes Antichrist at the battle of Armageddon – (Rev.19). And he throws the Antichrist beast and his False Prophet into the lake of fire.

 

   As God’s Bible Watchman I’m blowing the trumpet and sounding the alarm about Arnold Schwarzenegger. After checking carefully over the Web about this wicked man, God has prompted me to speak out a little about him right now. He has many attributes of Antichrist and there is no doubt in my mind that he is an antichrist but whether or not he is the Antichrist, only time will tell. (I expect to be raptured up before he is revealed). But I want you to watch him closely the next few years.

 

 

In his film ‘Pumping Iron’ Arnold is shown posing triumphantly on a mountain to the sound of an anthem-like chorus, “Everybody wants to live forever.” Arnold’s image is that of a god enshrined on Mt. Olympus. The message is clear: Arnold is triumphant on the mountaintop. He also said “Of me being a king and standing on top of a mountain and there was no room left for anybody else up there, OK? Just for me.” Now there is a very, very proud man. He was born in Austria like Hitler and his father was a Nazi.

 

   He is now Governor of California and is posed to run for president. But in order to do that, he must change the supreme law of our land – the Constitution. It limits the presidency to people born in the U.S. “No person except a natural-born citizen shall be eligible to the office of president” – (Article 2). It is written of the beast in (Dan.7:25) that he will “Think to change times and law.”  He also said – “I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for ‘great things.’ People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in anyway. I hope it never will.” It is written of the beast in (Dan.7:8,20) and (Rev.13:5) “There was given unto him a mouth speaking great things.” In his Gov. of California acceptance speech on Oct.8, 2003 he said, “I believe in the people of California and I know that together we can do ‘great things.’

 

   He also said “At that point, I didn’t think about the money. I thought about the fame, about just being the greatest. I was dreaming of being some dictator of a country or some savior like Jesus. Just to be recognized.” Arnold is said to be a bodybuilding beast. One of their books is called ‘Building the Perfect Beast.’ Many of his movies are about beasts like “Predator.” In the movie “End of Days” Arnold meets Satan in N.Y. Satan takes over a man’s body so he can impregnate a virgin named Christ-ine, thereby producing Antichrist. With time running out, Satan possesses Arnold’s body.

 

   Antichrist’s empire shall be “Strong as iron” – (Dan.2:40-42). And Arnold is strong from pumping iron. He could very well become the ‘strongman’ dictator beast of the great tribulation. O saint of God do not underestimate the consequences for the U.S. and the world if the most proud beast-man Schwarzenegger is unleashed as the president of the U.S. Empire. And if the constitution is amended – Especially watch him.

 

   How any Christian could possible vote for a wicked man like him is beyond my comprehension. People just don’t care about character anymore, they have no shame. When you walk in his mansion he has a very large portrait of himself in the hallway totally naked and he posed for magazines and in his movies totally naked also. He brags about his sexual sins and it’s in print. He fornicates like a beast. He should be called “The Fornicator” along with “The Gropinator.” He’s the symbol of fornicating Hollywood Babylon-USA. He supports the fornicating sodomites in California. Soon God will force U.S. to drink of the wine of the wrath of our fornication.

 

   He’s a movie idol whose image is seen worldwide and who is idolized by millions. He’s also a Roman Catholic religious idolator himself. Both the secular idolatry of Hollywood and the Catholic religious idolatry could be combined together to produce the walking-talking image of Arnold-beast that will be worshipped worldwide. His false prophet could very well be the pope. The secular superpower of the U.S. emperor and the religious superpower of the Catholic Church combine together to give the world the last emperor worship ever – the worship of the emperor beast and his image. Both are filled with fornication – both physical fornication and spiritual fornication, which is idolatry. I can’t help but thinks of Paramount Studios in Hollywood with their symbol of a mountain top with Paramount written over the summit. Paramount means – (Superior to all others – a supreme ruler). Los Angeles, the city of fallen angels, where the devil’s idol-stars rule and live like royalty and pollute the whole world with their idolatry and fornication could produce the Paramount ruler of the earth – the Beast. “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed”  (Rev.13:15).

  

   Have you humbled yourself at the foot of the cross and turned from your wicked ways and turned to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation? Ye must be born again. Receive eternal life in Christ. “For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.6:23).

 

Watch out for the deadliest sin of all – pride

Don’t be proud – Be saved. Amen and Amen.
