God has his plan but we have free will. We can do whatever we want. The outcome has already written but individually we can change our own destiny. Repent or not.

Proverbs 4The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. Colossians 1:16
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign forever and ever.

Satan. Gods kingdom is no part of this world. Jesus saves us from this world if we choose to follow him. Satan offered Jesus the knigdoms of this world & Jesus didn't accept.

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters. 1Cor10:26 "for the earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness." Isa 66:1 Heaven is My throne and earth is My footstool.

Ricky, In 2 Cor. notice the word god is lower case. Not capital as when refering to God the Father. Another example of this is with the word "lord" (lower case) used by many to address earthly men. And Lord (upper case) refers to God.

Checkout John 10:35 and Psalms 82:6.
2Corinthians 4:4 says, "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not;"
---Rickey on 6/27/06

Mike check out 2Corinthians 4:2-4.

Satan is the ruler of this world. He is the prince of darkness. But God is in control of what Satan does and how he does it. Because remember God told Satan what he could and couldn't do to David.
---Rebecca_D on 6/27/06

Of course the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof...yet the Lord God has given or allowed satan a certain degree of rule, just as God allows us a free will. remember Job, God allowed Satan to take Jobs family etc, but forbade him to take Jobs life. All is for God's own purpose and glory
---Christina on 6/27/06

Please remember Satan is still just an ANGEL. HE IS NOT A GOD!!!!!! So please do not even give him that title. Both God's angels and Satan's fallen angels are both in a spiritual battle today fighting for our souls. So please, in the future, do not even give Satan what he wants us to do, CALL HIM A GOD!
---Fred_S. on 6/27/06

uh ricky - hogwash. I don't know what you meant to say, but man nor satan will never be god of this world.
---mike on 6/27/06

rickey you stated 'He made Adam god of the earth in Genesis 1." then why if adam was you say 'a god' would He and his wife be so tempted when the serpent said you will be as gods knowing good and evil.
do you think all men are "gods"

It's like when someone rents an apartment. The landlord still owns it, but the tennant is living in it an can do what he/she wants according to the contract.
---Rickey on 6/26/06

Both. Satan is god of this world now, but God is still "landlord" or "Lord of this land". God is still in control according to what He has planned, but not in control of how the earth is being ran.

So David said the earth belongs to YHVH.

Paul says it belongs to Satan.

Who's right?
---Jack on 6/26/06

Nah, Jack, David didn't lie. The earth is still God's, but He made Adam god of the earth in Genesis 1. When Adam sinned, he made satan the god of this world.
---Rickey on 6/26/06

Mike, satan has had the power of tempting the carnal flesh in the mind with thoughts that aren,t spritual. Since jesus death and resurrection born again christians have the power to ward off satan through a life of thinking spiritually when confronted with any and all situations. since jesus satans power is really non existant,we as the saints just have to realize it and live it. Now the lost are suseptable to satans lies mopre because they are not aware of the truth of jesus.
---tom2 on 6/26/06

When Adam sinned he gave the "rights" to this world to Satan. Satan has been ruling earth since BUT..God is in control and the ending is in the book. Jesus regains control. Remember, a day is as a thousand to God. It's only a blink of his eye from the day he created the earth and gave dominion to Adam to Adam loosing dominion to Satan to Jesus returning and reclaiming all that is GOD's for eternity.

So, Rickey, does this mean that David lied when he wrote in the Psalter, "The earth is YHVH's and the fullness thereof?"
---Jack on 6/26/06
