Negative Chess - The Way God Plays It
HEADLINE: "For I created all forces, and there is none that resisteth me or that does not subject himself to me. For all subject themselves to my monarchy and labor for my sole rule," Secrets XXXIII:8.
Just how shrewd and super-sharp is your Father? That HEADLINE is astounding when you consider that evil spirits have tried very hard to resist God and work against His sole rule. Satan wanted to rule and devils do not consider themselves as having subjected themselves to God's rule. Now the question is "Are devils super-stupid buffoons so blind that they could not tell that they backed into the sphere of God's will? ... or is God so wise that He took advantage of devils' ignorance concerning His purposes and they unwittingly did His bidding while consciously attempting to resist smaller considerations within the greater scope of His total will? The answer to both parts of the question is, "Yes!" Our HEADLINE is very "unflattering" to devils' wisdom -- so unflattering that it flattens demonic pride, Job 5:12-16.
We have called your Father the Chess Master. And chess is played by MOVING INFLUENTIAL, OPPOSING PIECES square to square. Out of Himself He created all things that are. There was nothing else with which to create anything except His own "Self". All forces were made by Him very deliberately according to PLAN. The powers of darkness are "planned" tools used by God to provide contrast in His education process. The Creator created the first two negative powers, Satan and Babylon, with natures the very direct opposite of His nature and Mother Wisdom's nature. They are the progenitors of all the powers of darkness, all the negative or black chess pieces on the "earth-board". These oppose the "light pieces", the children of God. The bottomless pit encompasses the earth which is solid ground for us and like a mirage to demons. It is like a gigantic chessboard. Satan is a "would be" dark king on this board, and Babylon is a would be queen among the black pieces, although all of them prefer to think of themselves as "gods". However, a pile of horse manure in a farmer's field is better than that whole dark kingdom. These tiny monsters thought they were worthy opponents capable of engaging God to see who could out man-uever who and eliminate the other one's household. Other devils on military men are knights. Devils on ministers are bishops. Devils on judges are judges and those on lawyers are lawyers and so the roles of the various "dark pieces" go. These are the "principalities and powers of darkness" who wrestle us, Ephesians 6:12. They have dedicated themselves to controlling us and eliminating us, Wisdom of Solomon - Chapter 2.
Demonic nature and behavior make them patsies to the Chess Master. Not wanting to see or hear His plans (WORD) and strategies make them easy to defeat in this (chess) wargame. Also, Satan is a witting ally with God. His desire for worship is so great he was willing to undermine his household to be a "god" for a night. From the Books of Jubilee 10:7-12 (Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament) Satan (Mastema) asked God not to bind all his demons in the pit because he wanted to rule and control them in evil. In the Revelation we find devils worshipping Satan as a god, the very thing he desired, and he used God's power given to him to achieve that purpose by deceiving his progeny with the working of "miracles", Revelation 13:11-15, 4-8. As a deceitful ally in secret, Satan asks God for power to harm us in test situations (as with Job) as well as to prove to his children by demonstration that he is a "god". This deception works to God's advantage. By teaching newborn devils that there is no God above, devils are rendered more vulnerable to surprise and defeat as they attempt to move (men) light pieces from square to square (various places and activities to influence and affect other men). We have dealt with positive aspects of God's dealing with men. Our purpose in this letter will be confined as much as possible to how God defeats hordes of devils -- "badger skin veils" covering His human temples, Exodus 26:13-14, I Corinthians 6:19.
In addition to using Satan as an ally willing to undermine his own household to fulfill his lust for worship, allowing lies to fester for a while before overturning them works to God's advantage. In fairness, God offered salvation to devils born down here and not previously condemned with Satan and the first fallen devils. Even Jesus "preached salvation to the spirits in prison" ... to whosoever would believe among them, I Peter 3:18-20. Carefully consider John 8:21-26 and the remainder of that chapter. Jesus is talking to the devils on the people and to the people in the crowd. Devils were addressing him through the mouths of the people although those men were unaware that they were demonic slaves. Jesus' typical offer of salvation to devils previously not condemned can be found in John 8:40. There was a time limit set for offering salvation to uncondemned demons, Zephaniah 2:1-2, Luke 21:24. The rebuilding of Jerusalem signaled the end of that time. No previously uncondemned demon born down here accepted God's offer of salvation through belief in Christ. They preferred Satan because righteousness is not attractive to them. It is contrary to their nature. A blanket of lies spread over the earth and seeing Satan's demonstration of power was enough to make his offspring cheer for him and worship him as something great. Actually, it is God's will that no demon should be saved. And Satan's envy of the chances of his own progeny to inherit his property and his desire for worship through a deceitful use of God's power worked to fulfill God's desire -- that demons should fail and all of them should be lost. So Satan is actually an enemy to his own offspring.
Letting Demons Reign
God allows demons to reign knowing that they will provide the evil contrast PLAN-ed for our negative first-life experience, II Esdras 6:1-6, Secrets 49:4, Romans 8:18-22, Ecclesiastes 1:13. From Peter's vision we have learned men are sent down from heaven with certain "beastly" (negative) roles to play on the earth-stage, and then they are drawn back up where they came from, Acts 10:9-16,28, Psalm 49:20. Devils are instrumental in leading men into their god-given negative roles and scripts, Revelation 13:4-7. But always devils will be the ones controlling the evil works, John 9:4. In allowing devils to reign, the hand of one demon is turned against the other Revelation 6:4. We said that by destroying the men of God, by controlling preachers, and by preventing men from obeying God, devils wage war against Him. God does not always take all the stuff that demons dish out against His authority. Often God "returns a recompense on demons' heads" by allowing them to get revenge on one another, Joel 3:4-8, and by allowing the angels to influence and redirect the men devils control. Devils scheme against each other for control while new Watchers seeing demons for the first time "watch" to see who caused all the evil in their lives while they lived on earth, Hebrews 12:22-24, Malachi 3:18, Isaiah 14:16-17, Hebrews 12:1. As new "judges" observing Outer Court proceedings, they learn exactly how demons "manage" control. New demons born on our bodies have to be instructed by their parents in their technics for controlling men. This amounts to a legal confession. Like Chinese "acupuncture" they learn which nerves to strike for the desired physiological effect and which area of the brain to penetrate in affecting the mind.
Demons punish each other by killing the bodies their enemy demons possess. We said demons bare grudges and never forget or forgive offenses against them. Two human beings who do not know each other might be possessed by demons still angry over an incident that might have happened 300 years earlier. If either one can be heard and becomes chief demon, the body of the person their enemy demon is on might get killed. Random, "senseless" killings occur in man's world between people who are strangers to one another ... because of problems their demons have among themselves. In spiritual reality, one set of demons finally gets revenge for a 300 year old offense. Men call these incidents "pointless tragedies". Revenge and punishment in the kingdom of devils has an outward manifestation in the world of men.
Every devil wants to rule. Since there is no brotherly love among devils, those fortunate devils become kings of the nations, generals over armies, judges and magistrates over cities - using the human beings they possess. Often subterfuge, corruption, and assassination are means used to achieve authoritative and preeminent positions. To maintain control race, language, land barriers, and political philosophies are used to define and restrict their specific areas of domain. Wars occur when devils get expansionist ideas. These things must be transmitted in some way to the man they possess. In man's world we experience the outward manifestation as Hitler, Mein Kampf, and WWII for example. Punishment for violating demonic rules can be drastic. Groups of demons on a man can cast off a violator demon. If a man violates their rules which apply to human beings also, he can be jailed, fined, or in the extreme case, killed. If he is put to death, his controlling "crown of thorns" will be dumped back into the agony of the bottomless pit.
The name Babylon means "confusion", Genesis 11:9. By allowing demons to reign, "disorder" or Babylon reigns. She is seen in vision riding on the Beast or controlling the powers of darkness, Revelation 17:1-6, Isaiah 47:7-8,10. Devils are very vicious toward one another, Psalm 50:16-21. They may kill in the blink of an eye, Revelation 18:24, Isaiah 47:6. All demons on a man may not be heard. God controls which demons will be heard and when they will be heard by regulating our spiritual ears, Proverbs 20:12, Job 36:8-10. Demons can find out which one of them is being heard easily. For example, if we hear a song in our head and then start humming it, that devil singing the song knows he can be heard. If an evil remembrance occurs and we react to it or mention the incident to someone around us, that devil projecting the thought knows that he can be heard. All conspiracies have to be channeled through those devils who can be heard. Any plots and schemes that fall within the bounds of our god-given required negative experiences in our roles, devils will be able to accomplish against us. Evil plots and deeds outside our prescribed roles cannot be accomplished. Again our prescription is Secrets 49:4. All evils that men are involved in, devils have the responsibility to accomplish them. Power to imagine or originate evil thoughts and schemes is not part of our created nature. Demons must project the mental pictures and thought in our heads. READ Ezekiel 8. In this revelation the "temple" is man. The "image of jealousy" represents demons on us and in us. Pictures on the wall reflect their projection of thought-scenes in our minds (chambers of imagery). God controls which demon in a man's "crown of pride" will be allowed to rule, Isaiah 28:1. If a demon comes up with a scheme within the scope of our required negative experiences and if it is the proper time for it, that demon will find that he is being heard. ONLY GOD KNOWS what negative experiences He has chosen for us to undergo. For this reason, He "openly" takes responsibility for the evils we experience, but He is just and right to blame all devils and only devils for working their evil schemes using us, Isaiah 43:27-28, 45:6,7, 47:6,10, 12, Amos 3:6-7, Deuteronomy 32:39.
All our experiences are on a "time" schedule, and sometimes demons cannot figure out what is next for us. To keep us on schedule, God frequently gives us dreams about what will befall us. When we discuss these puzzling dreams with a family member or a friend, then demons know what they can do to us or what they can get us to do. So God will "cue" demons when they fail to figure what is next for us. I personally experienced this type of "chess-piece" control. Now I am very hesitant about discussing dreams, especially bad ones which devils discover they did not send. An example of motivating demons is when God Himself speaks to them and provokes an evil challenge! Job can tell you about that better than I can. If we repeat a demonic dream, the devil who gave it knows he can be heard. At any rate, the demon who can be heard can declare himself chief "roaring lion" among the "crown of pride", I Peter 5:8. So, God really controls to which places (squares) devils will be allowed to move us and which people we and the demons on us will be able to influence or affect because of those moves. If necessary, He will initiate, motivate, and provoke devils into providing the evil episodes required in our roles like a scientist doing an experiment. This is negative chess the way GOD MOVES THE BLACK PIECES. God also directs a demon's fall. He may allow a demon to land anywhere He pleases and on whoever or whatever flesh body He pleases. Those catching on to birds, fish, insects, and prey animals are in for a SHORT rest from falling. Certain demons with specific knowledge of truth can land on certain men to try them if God plans to use them in that way. The words of prophets that God sends may also be used to stimulate demons into negative activities or movements. They may move their human "light pieces" to reject the truth so they can avoid seeing it or hearing it, Isaiah 30:8-14. Concerning God's control of which devils and their human vessels are to reign, it is written, "that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth over it the basest of men (demons from Isaiah 28:1). He doeth according to His will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: NONE CAN STAY HIS HAND or say unto him, "What doest thou?", Daniel 4:17,35. Now consider how devils on the king of Assyria as "black-piece" kings tried to credit themselves with power for moving the people. "For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent; and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man. And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing or opened the mouth, or peeped" (because devils are invisible), Isaiah 10:13-14. But God will not allow even this much credit to go to devils when He is the Chess Master. He reproved those devils through the prophet Isaiah in 10:15, "Shall the ax boast itself against him that heweth therewith? or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself as if it were no wood." In Isaiah 10:16-20 God threatens those devils for crediting themselves and not acknowledging Him as the source of their power. King Nebuchadnezzar's demons got him in trouble by similar boastfulness until he learned that your Father controls MOVES OF THE BLACK PIECES ON THE WORLD CHESSBOARD! This regulation is deliberate because demons think fighting God is to destroy his children, Psalm 35:19-21,25. God employs devils to help regulate the flow of TIME (movement of His son/daughter pairs). Acts of fornication help roll TIME DOWN (increased birth rate) and their penchant to kill men helps wind TIME UP bringing the absolute END with fantastic speed. The key to God's use of demonic control was given to Ezra regarding demonic kingdom rule: "Hear thou eagle, I will talk with thee; The Most High saith to thee: art thou not it that remainest of the four beasts which I MADE TO REIGN in my world THAT THE END OF MY TIME (children) MIGHT COME through them?" II Esdras 11:38-39. Billions of years of earth's TIME have rolled by swiftly because devils failed to know "What is man that thou art mindful of him?" But one son/daughter (sun/moon) pair is ONE SPIRITUAL DAY, the equivalent of 1000 earthly years. Had it not been for sin, devils' STAY OF EXECUTION TIME could have been almost indefinite. Anger, bitterness, hatred, and revenge are bad traits of demons' nature which have worked against their best interest -- a prolonged stay of execution. But letting demons reign has worked to God's overall advantage. Men do not remain long in the womb of the earth! Hosea 13:13-14, Ecclesiastes 12:7, Revelation 18:24.
All that we have just discussed about TIME was revealed in two Old Testament ACTS in parabolic form. Interpretation by the spirit is required to see the hidden picture. When Israel did not subdue all their enemies in occupying the "promise land", those enemies, who represented devils, became "hewers of wood and drawers of water," where our bodies are those "trees of righteousness" that get hewn down, Joshua 9:16-27, Isaiah 61:3. The purpose of chopping down trees and "circumcising" stones is to build up the temple of heaven, I Kings 5:1-7,18, where our "bodies are the temple of God" and "lively stones," II Corinthians 6:16, and I Peter 2:5. Living parables, incidents in the daily lives of special people on stage, and word parables are "purple and scarlet clothes" in WORD form used to cover components of the "tent" -- actually done by angelic priests, the ARCHANGELS. See Numbers, chapter 4, especially verses 18-20 regarding the holy things contained in the WORD itself. Since the holy things are covered in the WORD, only God's "priest" can uncover them. And as we wrote previously, a priest of God ATONES as it is his DUTY placing all the sins of all people for all times on the heads of the powers of darkness, the scapegoats, Leviticus 16:20-22. And he is not ashamed of this duty, neither is he afraid to mention this to men or their controlling demons! He will certainly "comfort ye, comfort ye my people" as God asked, Isaiah 40:1-2. God did this in the beginning and had Satan cast into the bottomless pit. See Enoch 10. You are not a priest of God if you have not done this and cannot look upon humanity (even those in the act of sin) with the eyes and mind of our Father, Numbers 23:18-23, Acts 10:9-16,28. ALL MEN MUST BE SEEN IN YOUR EYES AS "FAULTLESS' ... IF YOU ARE A PRIEST OF THE MOST HIGH GOD! Now if you are an earthly priest, you will have earthly thoughts and earthly minded men will agree with you, John 3:31-32, I Corinthians 2:9-14. But the Chess-Master is the ATONER and He has His own BISHOPS and KINGS in squares on the earth-board. Demonic bishops, kings and hirelings do not and cannot atone for ALL.
Since viewing our Father as the SOLE Chess Master --- seemingly playing against Himself using "white pieces" and "black pieces" is new to you, how about broadening your horizons and increasing the number of "talents" at your disposal? The words of snake-bitten theologians who are moved to theological squares by demons have been used to block your pathway to greater light. Move their influence out of your mind and step up to a brighter square. "Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding", Proverbs 23:23. I have a proposal for you. Make an investment in your own "interest". In the past, you have paid tithes and offerings to churches and ministers who used it to blindfold your eyes and the eyes of others. Go to any Bible bookstore and order the references we use which contain light-keys you do not have. Do not let any "black-piece" (moving any "white piece") prevent you from doing so! God did not send the slanderers from DEMON GOG and MAGOG with their demagoguery, who continue to spew their darkness against those works, Ezekiel 38:14-19. "Shewbread" in those works is for God's priests only, and whomsoever they feed, Luke 6:3-4. ALL those dressed in "strange apparel" at our feast will be moved out, Isaiah 4:1-2, Zephaniah 1:8, Zechariah 3:1-4, Matthew 22:11-14. Please READ those texts! "Strange" apparel is your own covering of "graven images" (demons), the "black pieces" around you, if you let them influence you! Habakkuk 1:4.
Consider this: Ode of Solomon 39:1-5, "Great rivers (the WORDS of the four Archangels forming four branches of the River of Life, our Father) are the powers of the Lord: And they carry headlong those who despise Him: and entangle their paths. And they sweep away their fords, and catch their bodies and destroy their lives. For they are more swift than lightening and more rapid, and those who cross them in faith are not moved. And those who walk on them without blemish shall not be afraid." And from the Testament of Zebulun II:25, 26, "Observe, therefore, the waters and know WHEN THEY FLOW TOGETHER, they sweep along stones, trees, earth, and other things. But IF THEY ARE DIVIDED into many streams, the earth swalloweth them up and they vanish away." And Jesus said "If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth on me as the scripture hath said out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water," John 7:37-38. Those of us who know the real truth that ALL MEN ARE SAVED and that ALL MEN SHALL BE RECONCILED TO GOD are like many rivers running our separate way. We can be a POWERFUL FORCE on earth and WE CAN SET THE WORLD ON FIRE, if we flow together and create a single huge flood! We do not have to be "swallowed up by the earth" with the few people we reach on our mailing lists and confirming our light to the same few who enjoy attending group conferences. Ted and Helen Jones keep a listing of all who believe in the gospel of reconciliation. Those of you who are unfamiliar with them can write them at 1792 John Street, Thornhill, Ontario, Canada - L3T 1Y9. Ask for an updated copy of that list and if your group is not on it, you should get on it. They will need a copy of your literature on "reconciliation". You will find that we are many. But we have not been very visible or effective. How many people in the world know you exist or have heard of you and your views? False gospel pushers do a better job of reaching people than we do. Advertising in the news media is the best way to reach our brethren. In the past our "Free-will" ad was placed in the National Enquirer, The Star, and Midnight because those weeklies hang around places a long time, and they sell at all international airports. These newspapers have circulations in the millions. We advertised in the New York Times and other daily newspapers in major U.S. cities. For foreign newspaper advertising, I went through Regie International, Inc. and INTA Advertising, Inc. out of New York City. This is the way to reach "hedges and highways and compel men to enter in", Matthew 22:8-10. I cannot afford to do this any longer, but I am sure many of you can. I detest having the greatest truth available and cannot give it to humanity. If enough of you accept a common purpose of advertising broadly with the news that "all men are saved" and "God does not impute sin to men", you just might become BEAUTIFUL SHOES for angelic Hosts, Song of Solomon 7:1, Isaiah 52:7, 40:1,2, 66:1. Please be encouraged to do this for the sake of your Father's LOVE, Song of Solomon 8:6,7. He cared enough to entrust us with His real light. Why not show Him we can combat the Dragon's flood with a great flood of light? Dora Van Assen, Vince Hollander and Henry Buller, John Cheetham, John Braucht, Dora Hepler, Clark Travis, David Hulse, Phil Scranton, Barb Shawl, Elwin Roach, Jean Troupe, Lloyd Hibberd, Norene Nicholls, to name a few ... I implore you as "movers" let us not make small circles. Why sit on our own hands? Let us become "big wheels" for the Archangels' Chariot and carry the "good news" that each of us has to the newspapers in catchy, to-the-point, "ads" large enough to be noticed, Ode of Solomon 23:5-20. This can be expensive, but it is worth it. I would gladly spend for Him again, if I had the money. Greater love hath no man than to give his life. May the "Force" be with you, the Chess Master in these "star wars", Daniel 12:3.
Your Father rules and controls everything. He alone is sole ruler in Heaven and earth. Devils do submit and obey His will for them -- that is to be tools and provide the negative contrast in God's teaching methodology. As Chess Master devils are the "black pieces" who climb out of the pit to get on the earth-board. These then influence and work the negative experiences required for God's "light pieces". God will not allow devils even to take credit for their power of control He gave them. Devils have the duty of aiding the "movement" of the TIME CIRCUIT. They have to speed the motion or shorten time in their customary effective ways. God even influences which specific demons will be allowed to control by regulating the hearing of our spiritual ears. All negative "exercise" for any individual must be accomplished according to schedule. If devils cannot figure out our scripts, God may give us a dream "cue" personally or through a friend. If He has something special in mind, He might personally speak to demons Himself to motivate them into the appropriate action. It might require "removing the hedge" like it happened to Job. Knowing how God moves the "black pieces" can be helpful. Those devils who will not cooperate or go too far may be dumped back into the pit in the customary manner. Hopefully you can see why your Father must be "feared" by both man and devil, Revelation 15:3-4. He is the only ONE who really can "play" this wargame!
