What God did during the time of the prophets and apostles, He did in response to what pagan nations were doing, Derek Gilbert says. These pagan rituals even play a role in end-times prophecy, the author and SkyWatchTV host says. “Ezekiel prophesied a day when those spirits would be part of the war led by the entity coming from the mountain that Lucifer wants to establish his throne on, which is in Turkey,” Gilbert says.

The Great Inception: Satan’s Psyops from Eden to Armageddon, might be better named, The Mountains of the Bible: Where Yahweh Kicks the Stuffin’ Out of Little Gods. Yep, that alternate title is about right – although I could have used some different nouns about what got kicked. Nevertheless, Derek organizes his material around some of the most famous mountaintops in Scripture like Sinai, Carmel, Zaphon, and Zion. However, chapter by chapter, Derek walks us through a mountain of material on the gods (little “g” gods), that ancient peoples worshiped, as the backdrop to relate little-known facts that amplify what the Bible teaches. Along the way, much of what we were taught about the bible’s heroes (like Abraham, Moses, Joshua, and Elijah to name a few) falls victim to better scholarship put forth in the last decade or two by Middle Eastern and Semitic language scholars, like Dr. Michael Heiser, who Derek has hung out with a lot during the past six months or so. One example of what I’m talking about (I could have picked from a hundred or more provided in the book) comes from learning about the true geographical origin of… (READ MORE)
Most believers are familiar with the false god Baal, the idol Elijah faced down while King Ahab and Queen Jezebel ruled. But the principality traces further back in the Bible, to Exodus 14, author Derek Gilbert says. “Backing up 1500 years from the confrontation on Mount Hermon, the Red Sea crossing was a supernatural conflict, another smackdown if you will, in the supernatural realm between God and Baal. Now what was Baal doing in Egypt?” Gilbert says on The Jim Bakker Show. When Moses was leading the Israelites from Egypt, God commanded him to go back and camp on a mountain with “Baal” in the name. Why? Watch the video to see. (WATCH THE CLIP AT CHARISMA NOW!)

In the myth, even though Inanna married Dumuzi, she was happy to throw him under the bus when demons tried to drag her younger son, Lulal (Bad-Tibara’s patron god), down to the netherworld. At Inanna’s urging, the demons spared Lulal and took Dumuzi instead. Dumuzi’s sister pleaded for him, so Inanna agreed to allow her to take his place for half the year, thus making Dumuzi the first of many “dying and rising gods” in the ancient Near East. More than two thousand years later, one of the abominations God showed the prophet Ezekiel was women at the entrance of the north gate of the Temple weeping for Dumuzi, called Tammuz in the Bible.
