Who Rules ?
I found a chart on the internet that states that Satan is the ruler of this planet along with the "fallen angels", it also mentions that the three main religions and the nation states are just developed by Satan to control the human beings.
This might be true in one case, if God doesn't exist. The conspiracy of Satan and his descendants (the Jinn beings) is detailed in the scriptures and yes indeed the religions and the nation states maybe his tools to control us, however there is no god except God.
Only God rules, He has no partners in His kingship, not Satan, Muhammad, Jesus nor the saints.
The evil doers may impress you with their wealth, and power, in reality they are powerless, they can't even control themselves and that's why Satan controls them.
What will distinguish the real elite from the fake elite is this simple conviction, do you think Satan or his evil followers are actually ruling the world? do you think their money or power can go against God's will?
God created them, their money, their posts and all what they are or have, how could we be that ignorant to think for a minute that they can harm us without God's permission? they will harm none but the guilty who forget God and righteousness, and follow their sinful lusts.
Will you be a winner or a loser? You have the answer, just ask yourself, "what occupies my mind most of the time?", if it is anything or anyone other than God, then you better repent and shift your center back to God before it's too late.
[13:16] Say, "Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth?" Say, "GOD." Say, "Why then do you set up besides Him masters who do not possess any power to benefit or harm even themselves?" Say, "Is the blind the same as the seer? Is darkness the same as the light?" Have they found idols besides GOD who created creations similar to His creations, to the point of not distinguishing the two creations? Say, "GOD is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Supreme."
The apparent control of Satan over this dominion was meant for one reason, to distinguish the blind from the seers, the blind bought the idea that Satan rules, as for the seers, they Know that only God rules and thus they will be the ultimate victors.
The illusion of Satan's rule will end very soon beginning with a big event, God willing, on 11.9.2005, for now it's time for God's kingdom to take over.
