Do I really have to introduce what I am going to write about in this article? Not really. I think we know the drill when it comes to Erano.
"You may ask: If Jesus was already punished by God, how did this deception of his spread throughout the world?
“When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.”
Luke 9:1-2 (NIV)
“he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases” - Jesus gave his disciples his power, the very same power he got from Satan. This same power was transferred to the religions from Jesus’ apostles and disciples.
“sent them out to preach the kingdom of God” - And this “god” whom the disciples had preached is none other than “Jesus” as Satan’s power was already with him."
The God proclaimed in the context of Luke 9 is the Father, the first person of the Trinity, And who are the members of the Trinity? Father, Son and Spirit. With the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, the disciples drive out demons. There isn't a false god being proclaimed in the context and Erano has not demonstrated that point forcefully, Nor have his followers.
"You may notice how the deception had become greater from Satan to Jesus. In Satan’s time (in the Garden of Eden), he only overturned one law of God. In the case of Jesus,to show that he truly worships Satan, he should execute or achieve an even greater deception than what Satan had done. Jesus overturned the Ten Commandments of God, thus carrying out a much greater deception than Satan. However, both their deceptions are nothing compared to what the apostles and religions had done. They had made humanity worship and revere the brutally punished Jesus as god!"
I have already pointed out previously that Jesus did NOT overturn the Law, HE FULFILLED THE LAW. Read the following:
I have demonstrated elsewhere that Jesus DID NOT worship Satan and no 2 Samuel 7:14 is NOT argument against Jesus:
Sigh, How can people put up with reading repetitious material such as Erano's I'll never know. Most material of his I can just link to another article due to either addressing it or adding additional material sometimes if Erano repeats a point and adds more to it.
"There is no greater deception than to make humanity believe that a man who was brutally punished (and even cried out before he died, complaining to his “god”, why was he forsaken) as a god? This is why the religions today had all this wealth and power because they are the ones who continued
Jesus’ deception and thus continue worshiping Satan. They deserve the splendor and authority that Satan had promised to Jesus before."
Just read the previous articles above, I needn't repeat myself here.
As for Revelation 12:9, it is speaking of the devil and the evil angels who sided with him. In fact just reading on from Revelation 12-14, you will find the saints are the ones who are oppressed by the devil and the beast. But let's take a look at Erano's points to refute him and drive my point home.
"Now that we have known how the deception of Satan which Jesus had preached had been spread all over the world, we may now understand the following verse:
The great dragon was hurled down - that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan,
who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Revelation 12:9 (NIV)
“who leads the whole world astray.“- indeed the whole world was led astray by Satan through Jesus, the apostles and religions
"was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him." - Who are the angels of Satan? They are the religions! They are the ones who continued the deception of the apostles about Jesus! This means Jesus is no longer the enemy as he had long been dead. He already paid the price of his failure and his wrongdoing through his brutal death. It is now the religions as they are the ones who are still propagating the deception of Satan!
With all that we have just read about Jesus being the offspring of Satan and as revealed to us by God in the scriptures through His real prophet like Moses, Teacher Evangelista, we can now understand this truth:
That the BATTLE that God spoke about long ago in the book of Genesis between the offspring of the woman and that of the Serpent (or Satan) is now about to happen IN OUR TIME."
The angels mentioned are the angels who betrayed God and followed Satan, NOT the apostles themselves and in the same context of Revelation, JESUS IS ALIVE AND IS THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, WHICH IS A TITLE THAT BELONGS TO YHWH ALONE!!! Read this article on the subject of the Alpha and Omega:
"When Jesus failed, will God let the serpent’s head or Satan’s deception remain and not be crushed as He said in Genesis 3:15?
11so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty,
But will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
Isaiah 55:11 (NIV)
No! It says" it will not return empty”- This means God will not allow His purpose to come to naught. He will choose another man who will accomplish His purpose of making His Name known thus crushing the head of the serpent or destroying the deception of Satan. This time, not by a Jew or descendant of David, as Jesus was the last from David’s lineage.
It will be a Gentile or a non-Jew whom He will now send to make His Name known."
WHERE DID JESUS FAIL? It's not there in the NT. ERANO IS LYING TO YOU!! Anyway Genesis 3:15 has been addressed here:
The abuse of 1 Kings 8:41-43 and also the claim it's talking about the prophet like Moses has already been covered in my first article response to Erano:
"“the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem” – why is it mentioned here as “New Jerusalem”?
Maestro Evangelista says: God will not change His promise that His Name will be placed in Jerusalem, so wherever His Name is proclaimed, that place will be called the “New Jerusalem.”
If the prophet like Moses, whom God had sent to speak in His Name comes from an Island country in the East, it follows that God's Name will be proclaimed in the same country.
In what distant land will the prophet like Moses, who will proclaim the Name of God, come from?
They raise their voices, they shout for joy; from the west they acclaim the LORD's majesty. Therefore in the east give glory to the LORD; exalt the name of the LORD, the God of Israel, in the islands of the sea.
Isaiah 24:14-15 (NIV)
It is written that the real true Name of God will be glorified in the East, in the Islands of the sea. This is because the man (whom God chose as His prophet like Moses to reveal His Name), comes from the island country in the East- the Philippines
When King Solomon said “when he comes and prays toward this temple,” - it does not mean that the chosen one will go to present day Jerusalem as there is a “new Jerusalem”. It only means that when the foreigner or the prophet like Moses appears he will lead everyone on how to truly worship God by calling on God’s true Name."
The context of Isaiah 24 is NOT talking about a prophet from the Philippines, it is referring to the Gentile nations coming to praise the God of Israel and worship him forever, specifically referring to the semitic nations surrounding Israel and then eventually the world. Gentiles from both east and west are praising God, eventually all, all who believe that is, worship him forever. There is nothing about a future prophet from the east, nothing about him coming from the Philippines. 1 Kings 8:41-43 has already been addressed.
More objections shall be addressed in another article.
