Please prepare for this article, by reading:

Who of us need to be told that Satan's greatest desire is to be worshiped? The worship he salivates most for, is the worship of Yhvh's Nation (1Pet. 2:9,10; Luke 22:31;  1Pet. 5:8;  2Cor. 2:11; 11:3,14; Rev.12:17). Satan's vicious appetite craves them, especially (Eph.6:12;  2Cor. 10:3,4,5; Rev.12:15; 16:13,14,15; 17:14; 19:11,14,8; 6:9,11; 12:10,11). 

How might the King of Deception strategize to accomplish his goal of stealing the worship due Yhvh, and sifting / sorting (tribulating) the Chosen Ones? The following illustration may help. 
In order to control the beliefs and actions of the Chosen, Satan would need to use all his worldly authority and power (1John 5:19; Luke 4:5-6) to deceive these ones into worshiping him. These would not do so intentionally, so they must be deceived into believing that they were worshiping God himself. 
This would require Satan to fabricate a counterfeit kingdom, with counterfeit representatives of that kingdom (Matt.7:15; 24:24-25). 
In order to be convincing, that counterfeit kingdom would need to appear to have all it's structure and followers seeming to be worshiping God according to the requirement of "spirit and truth" (John 4:24). It would need to appear that Christ were heading it (Eph.5:23,26; 1:21-23;  1Cor. 12:27,28; Col.1:18). For, those anointed with holy spirit, would accept nothing less. Yet, it can happen (Col.2:19; John 15:4,6;  2Cor. 11:3-4,12-13,20; Rev.2:20,5).
Satan would need to set up a fresh religion...."new and improved" in comparison to his legacy of brutality and persecution. That past spirit of dominance would need convincing camouflage. In order to be convincing, he would not only need a convincing counterfeit...he would also need to establish a sort of "whipping boy", to fulfill the prophecies about the Bible's foretold counterfeits, so that familiarity with those prophesies, would already seem fulfilled in some other way. Yes, a counterfeit to fulfill the foretold counterfeits. Otherwise the counterfeit of the genuine would remain suspect.
Yes, Satan would need to create a religion which is set apart from previous inferior "Christianities",  in order to present it as fulfilling the prophecies which genuinely pertain to the genuine arrival of God's Kingdom. 
Please consider this illustration...
Imagine that Satan wishes to steer the obedience and worship of the Chosen, to him. After gaining their trust and a degree of control, he wants to drown the Chosen in deep waters far from shore (Heb.2:1). First he must convince them to get on to a "ship" of faith, which he will later sink in a sea of lies (1Tim. 1:19). The ship must appear solid, safe, and unsinkable. History contains the reality of such an illustration.
The massive crowd of people claiming to be genuine worshipers of Yhvh around the world, can be compared to the Titanic. Deceived into boarding this ship, the majority of Chosen ones today are found within that Organization. It is a huge ship, which takes time to turn or hault. In order to change it's heading, it must make turns gradually. It must have a captain and crew under Satanic influence. Satan knows that turning the worship of God's people away from God, and toward him, will need to be done gradually in order not to provoke awareness of the changed direction, or to cause alarm. This stealthy tactic will aid in a smooth transition which few can discern. Once the gradual turn is made and the heading changed, such a huge momentum would be difficult and timely to halt.

Very gradually over the years; The Watchtower has been gradually turning the worship of "Jehovah's Witnesses", away from Yhvh. 
            (by means of "froglike" expressions 
             -for explanation, 
             see )
By gradually turning the Flock's obedience toward it's leaders and congregational representatives, and away from scripture. Should God's named people obey the doctrine's and directions of men, as equal to inspired scripture...or as greater than the authority of God's Word? 
Should they trust without testing and, if necessary, defend scriptural directives?
If they do that, then Satan will have accomplished the prize he seeks. 
This occurs when people stop testing what they are being offered (1John 4:1;  1Thess. 5:21), because they make assumptions about the source (Matt.24:4,5,24,25; 7:15; Luke 12:42). Jesus told us to test out the source of what we are offered (Matt.7:20). If we don't, we will be mislead.
Constant comparison to scripture, is what guides the genuine Christian. This testing must never end, nor can one afford to grow complacent...sleepy...assuming......letting down his guard in this matter (Luke 21:36,34-35; Matt.24:43; John 10:10).
God's Word of light, life and truth, must be what guides the genuine Christian.
If people obey any men, even those "taking the lead", before obeying scripture; this constitutes idolatry and spiritual captivity to slavery. Whoever we obey, we are their slave (Rom.6:16). Only God is to be served and obeyed (Matt.4:10; Acts 5:29; 4:19; Rom.3:4; Col.3:24).
If such men and their decrees are followed without question, the scriptures become impotent to direct God's people. Satan could then smoothly divert obedience toward him and his representatives, and away from what the scriptures actually say.

What do the scriptures actually say?
"Do not put your trust in Nobles, nor in the son of earthling man, to whom no salvation belongs." Psalm 146:3
"There is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man Christ Jesus" 1Tim. 2:5
"There is no salvation in anyone else, for there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved." Acts 4:12
"Do you not know that if you keep presenting yourselves to anyone as slaves to obey him, your are slaves of him because you obey him" Romans 6:16
"You were bought with a price. Stop becoming slaves of men" 1Cor. 7:23
"Slave for the Master, Christ" Col.3:24

Clearly, if we obey men in place of obeying Christ, we are serving the will of Satan, who wishes to turn us away from obedience due the Christ.

We cannot afford to assume which prophets are faithful. We must keep testing by God's Word. We must not be intimidated by a showy display of power or authority (1Cor. 4:7-8; Rev.9:3,10), into subjecting ourselves to matter what silent threat they brandish (John 9:22; 12:42; 16:2; Luke 21:12-13-14,15; Rev.6:9; 11:7; Matt.10:26;  2Pet. 3:10).
"But I am afraid that somehow, as the serpent seduced Eve by it's cunning, your minds might be corrupted away from the sincerity and the chastity that are due the Christ." 2Cor. 11:3
Brandishing power and authority, is not the way, nor the appearance, of the genuine faithful and discreet slave.
(2Cor. 4:1-3,4-6,7-9,10-12;  1Cor. 4:9-10,11-12,13)

Watchtower study articles, contain such cunning. Open your eyes wide for it, and do not be "corrupted away" toward the slaving and obedience to men rather than purity for Christ, the Father, and His Word.

Was a premature arrival of God's kingdom prophesied?

Keep in mind 2Thess. 2:1-4....
"Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God."

"the man of lawlessness...son of destruction...He lifts himself up over everyone who is a god** object of reverence 
            [Chosen Ones (Psalm 82:1,6; John 10:34-35; 
             Ex.7:1; 4:16,15; Matt.10:20)],...he sits down in the temple 
             of The God (Yhvh's temple priests - 1Cor. 3:16)...
             showing himself to be a god." (Eze.28:2,9)

By being named the "son of destruction" as Judas was 

            (an apostle used to betray Christ 
             over to the religious leaders 
             and into his death (John 17:12), 
this one would be an "inside man", 
used by Satan to dominate and trample the chosen ones 
in the time of the end (Acts 20:30;  1Tim. 4:1; Rev.16:14,13,15). 
In Rev. chapters 8&9, it speaks of an anointed one, "a star shining as a great lamp" (Rev.1:20,16; Phil.2:15; Dan.12:3-4; Rev.1:20; Zech.4:2; Matt.5:14; Rev.1:12; 2:1), who is given the key to Satan's abyss of deception (Rev.9:1; 13:15; 19:20).
That false prophet is a fallen "star" (Rev.8:10-11;  2Pet. 3:17;  Rev.2:5;  1Cor. 10:12; Mark 13:25; Isa.34:4; Matt.24:29; Rev.6:13) (Rev.13:11,14-15; 19:20 - John 20:22; Mark 13:14).

What does that fallen star empower and release against the Called Ones who are not yet sealed?
From that abyss, creatures crowned with authority come forth, possessing the sting of death to the unsealed chosen ones (Rev.9:1-3,5,10; 11:7; 13:1,7-8).
For a time, these agents under Satan will have success in preventing these invited from becoming sealed, just as the crew of the Titanic, lead the company under their charge, to their deaths. The final chosen will be prisoners of the abyss of deception and death, by means of it's agents...the fallen star (false prophet) and it's Gentile Beast that arises from that abyss. Those deceived by these agents of Satan's abyss, will also fall, and be trampled by those agents and their demonic expressions (Luke 21:24; Rev.13:10,8; 11:2)

Likely we have read Genesis 3:15 many times. Within our own minds; we have repeatedly been taught what the meaning of many Bible verses are. I hope today, to point out factual information which God gives us, by means of those verses.

Through His Word, the grace of God provides us with vital facts. We must not let go of any of them, while His spirit helps us to construct a clear image of Truth. Those facts are our touchstones, which guide us through the darkness (2Pet. 1:19)...until Satan's veil is removed from our eyes (1Pet. 2:9).
That veil is a constraint of thought. Satan knows how the human mind works. When we hear the same verses over and over, in association with the same interpretation; our minds grow numb and take for granted the meaning of those verses. We compartmentalize each interpretation, so that we are unable to construct the whole picture, which is only arrived at when truthful interpretations are assembled together. No solid fact should be omitted, and no proven lie should be included. If we strive to be guided by this reasoning, we will make progress in our understanding and accurate perception. 

I am going to ask you to think "outside the box", because that box of thought constraint, is by Satan's design. Please shake off the drowsy assumptions, for a fresh look at what God is actually telling us in the verses of His Word, and how those words apply to our own present day realities.

And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,

And you shall bruise His heel.

Who is Satan at war with?
Although we have heard this verse many times, it is forgotten while current interpretations are fabricated and accepted.
Fact #1.
Satan is at war with the "woman" and with her seed. Period.
Fact #2.
Satan is not passive in his enmity...he actively seeks to bruise the seed.

By what means does Satan attack the woman's seed? What are the weapons at his disposal?

 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,  against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

1Cor. 15:24,25 
Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet.

1John 5:19 
We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

Would you agree that Satan has the entire host of world powers at his disposal; which includes all authority and power within them? Can you see that all things of this world not under the headship of Christ, is under the power of Satan? I hope so. According to that fact, from which Country does he assert his rule? Does he not sit above every Nation and principality of this world? "The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one."
Jesus said
"So He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: “How can Satan cast out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.26 And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end." Mark 3:23-26

Does Satan know this? He is the greatest tactician of the world scene and the humanity within it. Of course he does.
Fact #3. Satan's throne is over the whole world since it's inception in Eden. He rules from, and over; all of it. His spiritual throne is not located in a particular country (such as a prominent Prophet teaches today).
Fact #4. Satan is in control over every aspect of the visible world.  

Any conflict, upheaval, or tumult we see within Satan's world, is a ruse. He will not "divide" his power to cause himself to fall. Satan is not at war with himself, seeking to divide up his power so that he "cannot stand". His only enemy are the woman's seed, remember? If we observe such divisions and tumult on the stage of the world scene, it is according to Satan's purpose and design. For what purpose? Do you remember fact #1 & 2?
Eph.6:12 made crystal clear, that he is using his world powers against the seed.

Fact #5. Satan is using all the nations under his worldly power, to "bruise" the woman's seed. 

How is Satan using his dominion over the Nations to harm the anointed today? 
History has shown Satan, that outright physical persecution has not thwarted the faith and faithfulness of God's faithful slaves. Remember, he needs a stealth deception to ensnare them (Rev.2:14,20; 17:2; Num.31:16;  2Pet. 2:15; Jude 1:11-12,10). 

How else can he use the worldly powers under his control?
He is maneuvering current events and developments to fabricate a counterfeit fulfillment of prophecy (physical signs of war, famine, pestilence, and earthquakes, etc.). Why? So that the "Woman's seed" does not perceive the spiritual interpretation of prophetic signs, which will equip them to contend with the real threats they now face.
Rev. 17:8 (CLICK on to read entire verse) tells us, that when this Beast of persecution re-emerges, it's new disguise causes it to go unrecognized. 
It seems to not exist anymore against the Chosen, Yet, it does.
Satan's deceptive power goes beyond the physical. This means he can do more than cause the physical distractions which deceive and kill. At Eph.6:12, it also called the woman's foes, "rulers of the darkness of this age". This is not a physical darkness, but a spiritual one. Yes...Satan also rules the spiritual climate of this world. He has spiritual power and influence. This too he uses against the woman's seed. He can bruise the seed with spiritual assault as well (Rev.12:15; 8:11). He rules the "darkness". Darkness is the opposite of the light. Light is truth. Darkness is deception. 
(John 3:21; 14:6; 8:12; 1:5; Psalm 43:3;  1John 1:6) 
It is Satan's goal to cause irreversible spiritual damage to prospective members of the woman's seed.  Physical damage is of no use (Rom.14:8; Mark 8:35; Matt.10:28). As long as the Chosen belong to God and hold fast to their testimony; they contribute to Satan's fall (Rev.12:10-11; Rev.2:25; 3:11; 12:17).
Satan can only succeed in subjecting the Chosen Seed to him, if he does it through religious deception, baited with a few truths (Jer.16:14-15,16-17,18; Hosea 9:7-8; 5:1; Ps.124:7; 25:15; Ec.9:12; Matt.13:47; Eze.13:21; Jer.31:11-12; Isa.48:20; Rev.18:4) 
(Col.2:8; Rev.13:10,7; Luke 21:24,22). 

Satan is "the angel of light" (2Cor. 11:14). Those who in the end, do prove themselves to be the "woman's seed", will have triumphed over Satan's deceptive darkness (although having been bruised/trampled/thrown down -Rev.12:4; Zech.13:9). Only God can redeem them from this Great Tribulation at Satan's hand (Matt.19:25-26; 24:22; Rev.7:10; Jer.31:11; Ps.18:17).

For each one Satan is able to deceive with his final stealth attack, he can throw down from their heavenly position 
(Eph.2:6; Heb.12:23; Phil.2:15; Rev.12:4;  2Pet. 3:17; Rev.2:5), 
swallow, and destroy. For every Chosen One who falls, and fails to remain standing before the throne of God; Satan has bought time for his worldly dominion to continue.

The most significant and relevant location of Satan's throne, is where his power sits over Yhvh's anointed ones. This is not a political or geographical place, but a religious "city" 
(Rev.2:13; 17:18).
This is where Satan rules above the "kings of the earth", who should belong to Jesus 
Rev.17:18; 9:11
(Rev.1:5; 5:10).

Fact #6. Satan uses all his world power to deceive the woman's seed into religious darkness and spiritual death.

Fact #7. Satan is not using all his power over all the nations, to provide the seed with an understanding of Truth.

Fact #8. World events are not truthful interpretation of scripture.

Everything that occurs within Satan's realm is a deception aimed at misleading the seed into darkness and death (John 8:44; 10:10). Jesus said that the truth is not in Satan. Neither is Truth to be found within the manifestations of Satan's power, nor in the unfolding activities of Satan's minions. Simply put, we will not find truth within the things over which Satan controls....least of all, truthful interpretation of Scripture and prophecy (2Cor. 6:14;  1John 1:6;  1Tim. 6:20). 
Only Holy Spirit combined with the Word of God, will shed light on the hidden things. (John 16:13; Gen.40:8; John 17:17; Heb.4:12; Luke 10:21;  1Cor. 2:6-8,10-12,13-14,15-16; Matt.13:11;  1Cor. 4:1; John 7:16-18; 12:49-50)
...not events in Satan's World!

Fact #9. Truth is only by means of God's Word and Spirit (John 4:24)

Satan is distracting, diverting, and misleading the seed away from the channel of true understanding. His tactics are powerful and effective (Rev.12:9,15,17; 13:7; Matt.24:5,24-25). He is sharing that power with human agents (Rev.13:2,5,8,11,14; 9:1,11). Why? Remember who his target is! It is not in order to undermine his own agents of worldly is "to deceive if possible, 
even the chosen ones."
How might events taking place in Satan's arena deceive the Chosen who have been granted insight by spirit? (1John 2:20,27)
Does Satan have the power and intelligence to fabricate a decoy...a counterfeit fulfillment of prophecy, in order to distract the seed away from a more hidden spiritual truth?
We have already proven his ability and intent.
We must not underestimate our adversary. He will use all his power and authority to mislead the seed. This includes current world events, as well as religious doctrine and messengers...all of which are under his command. (2Thess. 2:9-10;  1Tim. 4:1; Rev.16:13;  2Cor. 11:14)

When Jesus gave his slaves the Revelation of end time events (Rev.5:2,5,7; John 15:15; 16:15; Rev.1:1; 10:7-8), was it so that they could make wise stock investments?...or perhaps know which Nation to hide out in?...or simply to impress his kingdom partners with his worldly prediction savvy? No. 
At Rev.1:3, Jesus says that those who 
understand and obey the things written, as well as 
show faithfulness and endurance in declaring the opened seals of this scroll, 
will be blessed. 
Blessed how? Life, understanding, power, honor, vindication, and kingdom (Rev.2:7,11,17,26-27; 3:5,9,12,21). 
Would an understanding and interpretation of Satan's world lead to these things? No, but rather a faithfulness and endurance through all the deceptive tests about to befall all the chosen 
(Rev.2:2-3,9,19,24; 3:8,10-11; Luke 21:36). 
Does Jesus come to assist his brothers, by pointing to events in Satan's world, over which they have no control or accountability? No. He comes to show what will shortly take place, so that they are not deceived into idolatry and spiritual fornication, nor lulled into inactivity though a false declaration of peace. 
These are the precise threats mentioned above, which Satan's deceptions are bringing to bear. Jesus equips his faithful servants to identify Satan's tactics against them personally, so that they will not be deceived, and found naked and asleep. 
Jesus points to the source of this powerful end-time machination of Satan aimed at the Holy Ones. (Rev.2:2,9-10,13-15,20-22,24; 3:2-3,9,16-17,19). In order to keep the Chosen from recognizing Jesus' council, Satan has done his best to emulate a physical image of that council,
 within the world under his power. Any Chosen who are fooled by this decoy, 
will miss out on the life-saving reality of Jesus' actual message.

Fact #10. The revelations Jesus gives his slaves about the end of this world, is the information they need to prove insightful and faithful.

No, it is not a lack of recognition about current events in Satan's world which threatens the is a powerful deception which has over taken them through Satan's agents (Rev.2:16). Remember, those agents include the World of Nations as well as the religious climate which surrounds the chosen. This pervasive delusion has threatened their standing with Christ (Rev.2:4-5,14-15,20,22; 3:1-3,16,19). According to Jesus' counsel; the threat to the remnant is idolatry, spiritual fornication, and inactivity...not political unrest or financial collapse (Rev.2:4-5,14,16,21, etc.). Jesus also speaks of the source of this deception, as being present among them (Rev.2:2,9-10,13-15,20,22-23; 3:1,9) 

Jesus referred to those RELIGIOUS agents under Satan, 
as Satan's throne 

(Rev.2:2,9,13,20,23; 3:9; 9:11; 19:20; 13:15,7,10; 2:10). It is from these religious agents, that Satan rules over the Chosen Ones. No single worldly Nation has dominion over the anointed. The only "Gentiles" who have come to dominate the Chosen Ones, are religious in nature and power. Remember that the Chosen are politically and nationally neutral.
Satan does not rule them through the political powers of this world.

After Jesus gives this introduction to Revelation in Chapters 1-3, he begins in Chapter 4 to illustrate how these things will take place. His reasoning is not chaotic, in that he jumps to an unrelated subject. Rather, he then explains in symbolic detail, how and why the counsel given to the 7 Congregations becomes necessary. He paints a detailed scenario of the end, as it touches all his servants...good and bad...faithful and unfaithful; so that the 7 Congregation will have fair warning as to their impending judgment (Rev.1:3,11,19,20; 2:7,11,17,29; 3:1,5-6,8,12-13,20-22). Clearly, that judgment is not based upon Satan's world economy or political drama...but upon things which the Chosen can choose or reject...and prove what their own work is (1Cor. 3:13-14,18-19,20-21,23).

The rest of the book of Revelation gives fine detail as to the identities of these false "Jews" (Rev.2:2,9; 13:11) and fornicators (Rev.2:14,20-22; Rev.17:1-2; 18:3,9) among which the Chosen are dwelling (Rev.9:5-6,14; 11:7).
Satan's throne is given to the Wild Beast (Rev.13:2), and it is through IT that spiritual threats face the Chosen (Rev.13:7-8,9-10,14,16,17; Psalm 94:20-21; Jer.43:10-11; Rev.13:10).

In a very real spiritual sense, there will be signs in the "heavens" (Luke 21:25). 
Jesus, the face of Truth, is compared to the sun (Matt.17:2; Rev.1:16;  1Thess. 5:5;  2Cor. 4:6). He is the light of day (John 8:12; 11:9;  1Pet. 2:9;  2Pet. 1:19)...the morning star of dawn (Rev.22:16).
The moon is responsible to illuminate the night before the day arrives. We are told it turns to blood, just as the two witnesses are also killed (Rev.18:24; Joel 2:31; Acts 2:20; Rev.6:12; 11:7; 17:6). The stars are individual lamps which shine their own light as well...good as well as bad..."wheat" and "weeds"... (Matt.5:14; Rev.1:20; 8:10; 9:1; Dan.8:10; 12:3; Phil.2:15; Jer.31:31,35; Joel 2:10,31; 3:14-15; Matt.24:29; Heb.11:12,16; Jude 1:13; Rev.6:13; 12:4). 

The "heavenly bodies", are symbolic. Christ is the sun (Mal.4:2; Luke 1:78; Isa.60:1; Rev.22:16; Matt.17:2). The faithful of his Bride, who reflect his "light" (John 8:12; Matt.5:14) during the "night" (Rom.13:12; Mark 13:24; Isa.60:2), are the moon (Ps.89:37), who are in subjection to the mother covenant (Rev.12:1; Gal.4:24,26) and who are slain (moon to blood (Rev.6:9-11). The "stars" are individual prophets/messengers/angels (Rev.1:20; Dan.12:3; Phil.2:15) or the 12 apostles (Rev.12:1). All "stars" (apostles and prophets) are the foundational lights, of God's "Temple"/Congregations 
(Eph.2:20;  1Cor. 3:16; Rev.1:20).

Of these anointed stars, Satan will drag a symbolic third into a fallen condition (Rev.12:4) before they are refined through discipline, and rescued (Zech.13:9; Mal.3:3,2; Isa.10:22). The earth depends upon those sources of light, for life. We are seeing a spiritual fulfillment of the signs Jesus foretold...all due 
to the RELIGIOUS throne of Satan.


The central point of this article is to declare that 
Satan is using all his power and authority over this world, to mislead the Chosen Ones.
His tools are all his authority... religious, political, and commercial. His objective is to deceive the Chosen into believing that the fulfillment of prophecy lies in his Secular world; and that the fulfillment of the Kingdom prophecies about the FAITHFUL Chosen, are fulfilled within the Organization over which Satan has gained control (Isa.5:7; Jer.2:21; Rev.14:18-19).
Any Chosen that come to believe these lies, will not see past these physical things over which Satan has complete control and power. These Chosen will be mislead into thinking that there is no further spiritual interpretation. These will not discern the real message from their Master, which means their lives. They will be deceived into thinking that submission to the "Organization" is all the requirement Jesus expects of them. 
These are fatal mistakes! Why?
Because the real life-saving message Jesus has given to the Chosen, as well as all those who are guided by them, is not the DECOY interpretation they find in SATAN'S world!
Jesus' life-saving warnings have nothing to do with the secular nations.
The danger to the Chosen is not in the World of Politics or Business. Neither is the path to faithfulness.
If the Chosen also believe that submission to the "Organization" ("Watchtower Organization") is the same as submission to Christ, they will be guided by a deceptive wicked steward (Rev.8:10-11; Matt.24:48) who is backed by Satan (Rev.9:1), ....instead of their Leader and Head (Matt.23:10; Eph.1:22-23; Col.1:18).
They will be marked as slaves of the "Watchtower" / Wild Beast/Organization, and found guilty of idolatry and spiritual adultery (Rev.13:16,8),
by their returning Master and King (Rev.16:15).

My next two articles will describe the true fulfillment of Jesus' message to the Chosen Ones, as well as the real "sign of his presence, and of the conclusion of the system of things" Matt.24:3 
(which signs are NOT  being fulfilled in Satan's World of politics and commercialism).
That spiritual  interpretation is in harmony with all Jesus' kingdom and end-time illustrations, 
as well as in harmony with the book of Revelation.

If Satan were permitted to prevent the spiritually significant fulfillment of prophecy, he surely would. But these things stand decreed by the Word of God and the authority of His Christ. 
Satan's only recourse, 
is to use the power which he does have, 
to emulate a counterfeit decoy fulfillment, 
in the hopes that it will deceive the Chosen 
away from the true message from Christ.
