That’s right folks you, yes you, can be like God and it’s about time you embrace it.
That which satan does is a corrupted version of that which YHVH does. The manner whereby satan goes about doing things is to observe YVHV and, essentially, do the same but inside out, upside down and backwards.
Some have noted that satan has not had an original idea in millennia and the sad thing is that he has not had to as we keep falling for the same ol' thing; the original rebellion, the original deception, the original temptation, the original sin.
The same but different or copy but corrupt tactic seems to function well due to its reliance upon the premises of misinformation; a deception peppered with truth comes across as believable. Thus, satan’s appeal is to play upon truth, holiness, YHVH’s modus operandi but to lead it all towards the worship of himself; he even told Jesus, “worship me” (Matthew 4:9).
The original rebellion was when heyel (translated down through the ages and languages as lucifer) stated what is known as the five I wills:
“I will ascend to heaven;
I will raise my throne above the stars of God,
And I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north.
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High.” (Isaiah 14:13-14)
Having come up with the ideal of the ultimate usurpation, the luminescent heyel became the adversary satan (not a fallen angel but a fallen cherub) and sought to promulgate this very idea amongst humanity.
This has been accomplished via mystery schools, secret societies, the New Age movement, Atheism, witchcraft/Wicca, cults and occultism by any other name. As an example, consider Mormonism which has, as its primary doctrine, that humans can literally become gods; a religion which is considered mainstream Christianity (at least by pop-occulture) holds to the number one satanic doctrine (learn more about Mormonism here).
He thought to make himself like the Most High and approached Eve with this concept:
“Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, ‘Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?’ The woman said to the serpent, ‘From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’’ The serpent said to the woman, ‘You surely will not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’” (Genesis 3:3-5)
This serpent (for my study of the Hebrew word, see On satan, divination and metal) was not a reptile animal snake:
“great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world.” (Revelation 12:9)
Thus, satan’s own original rebellion became the original deception/temptation and thus, the original sin.
However, this has pertained to being like God so as to take the place of, replace, topple, receive the worship rightly pertaining to YHVH, etc. However, there is a right, good, righteous, holy manner whereby to be like God.
For example, Exodus 7:1 states:
“Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘See, I make you as God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet.’”
Wow, Moses was not only like God but made like God by God!!! Indeed, and a newly found manuscript has an extra statement which states:
“And when God saith thus to Moses, that he will be like God, then God turneth to satan and, clearing his throat, saith, ‘You hearing this, huh? Yeah, that’s right buddy; there’s a right way to be like Me—capiche?!?!”
Well, the translation is still being debated…okay, alright, sorry about that whole thing ;o)
The point being made here was elucidated by Jesus Himself:
“‘You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you maybe sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:43-48)
Thus, do not let satanic corruption keep you from being like YHVH in the manner which He calls you to be like Him.
