‘The Prince of the Power of the
By Michael K. Haynes, Ph.D.
What is happening to America right now is not very complex at all. It can be nearly fully explained by only two verses of Scripture, Ephesians 2:2 and John 10:10. Let’s begin with Ephesians 2:2 which will introduce the Ultimate Oligarch.
“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the ‘prince’ of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”
The meaning of the word ‘prince’ in this passage is unquestionably broad in its interpretation. We can use the following words to lay the groundwork for its scope: Oligarch; Ruler; CEO; President; Chief Executive; Governor; Chancellor; and several other titles but you get the picture.
But first, please allow a little background to try and explain my understanding of the word ‘prince’. I played music for 8 years professionally before the Lord brought me into His Kingdom, so I know about the influence of music and its effect upon the listeners. My life changed dramatically when I was born again, and I surrendered to the Lord’s work in 1969 and began my formal training. After I finished seminary I served as the senior pastor of 4 multi-staff churches. During my third pastorate I wrote a book entitled, “The god of Rock: A Christian Perspective of Rock Music.” which became a national best seller and led me into a worldwide ministry. The word ‘god’ in the title was spelled with a little ‘g’, so I’m sure you know who that is.
The phrase "god of this world" in 2 Corinthians 4:4 indicates that Satan is this god who has blinded the minds of the disobedient and is the major influence on the ideals, opinions, goals, hopes and views of the majority of people. His influence also encompasses the world 's perspective, philosophy, education, business, governments and commerce.
Because of the book “The god of Rock” I was introduced to the ‘prince’ from a front row seat. I learned immediately where the fight was and how the Ultimate Oligarch and his assigned hordes had and would operate in my life. I have known his methods and tricks and what the God with a big G has allowed him to do for over 50 years. His numerous names can teach us much about who he is and how to deal with him and his demonic hosts.
Some of Satan’s Many Names
Abaddon - Hebrew name for Satan’s is meaning “Destruction”. “And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.” Revelation 9:11
Angel of light - “And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians
Apollyon - Greek name for Satan’s meaning is “Destroyer”. “And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.” Revelation 9:11
Beelzebub - “Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, ‘This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.’” Matthew 12:24
Devil - “He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8
Lucifer - "12 How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
Power of darkness - “13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13, 14
Thief“- The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
The Scripture has given him several more names…look them up and study his evil being so that you can be aware of his deceptive methods.
The meaning of the word ‘power’ in the Ephesians passage is authority. This identifies the power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience. ‘The power of the air’ relates to the jurisdiction of control or dominance of the airways where the Ultimate Oligarch resides. He is there to give orders, to rule, to dominate and to manage the airways in order to influence and direct the ‘children of disobedience’ on the earth who falsely believe that they are in charge of the airways.
When you think about it, most everything that is happening in our country right now comes to us through and over the airways. How does a Presidential rally get into our dens for us to see? For that matter, how does anyone or any event get into where we watch our devices? How does music get into our cars? How does the fake news come from where it is broadcast to wherever we see it or hear it? The airways, of course. I could even go so far as to say, how does a word come from your mouth to my ear. It travels through the air.
Stop and think! Contrary to what everyone seems to believe, GOOGLE, FACEBOOK, TWITTER, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, SOCIAL MEDIA and all the other Big Tech Institutions do not control the airways. Please go back to page one and read Ephesians 2:2 again. The Bible teaches us that the ‘prince of the power’of the airways is Satan. It is he that ultimately rules the airways. All of the fake information we see and hear comes from him. Satan is not only a liar, he IS a lie. There is no truth in his being. Whatever he says or does is complete deception. The meaning of deception is, “the a ct of causing someone to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid. We can have a better understanding of deception by looking at its synonyms: deceit; deceitfulness · duplicity · doubledealing · fraud ·
99.9 percent of the current stations and outlets send whatever information they are programed to present through the airways on the wings of the Ultimate Oligarch and FEAR! That is why so many people are now calling what they see and hear FAKE!
We live in a very unique time because this type of communication is extremely new. The first radio broadcast was sent over the airways in 1906. I was born in 1942 and vividly remember watching wrestling and snow on my parent’s first television while sitting on the floor with my friends in our living room when I was in grade school. I also vividly remember years later how hard our band tried to get a record deal so that we could have an airway expression to become successful. We all knew how people used to gather around the radio to listen to the Grand Ole Opry and hear the music of the popular players who had become stars. We also realized that without the airways we would always be locked into playing clubs and no one knowing who or where we were.
That’s the first passage to give us a more clear picture of what is going on.
The second of the two passages that will answer many of our questions about what is currently happening is found in the Gospel of John. One of the names of Satan that was mentioned in our look at Ephesians 2:2 was Thief.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy…” John 10:10
How Does the Thief Steal, Kill, and Destroy?
He steals by –
By getting our attention – this is the most simple way to see how the thief steals. When we are focused on something, all that has to happen is someone or something just gets our attention and turns our heads from what we are looking at.
Possessing our Minds – there are numerous ways to possess our minds. Fake media can dominate our thinking. We can certainly be possessed by music. And how about politics. Then there is the airways. TV; the Internet; Technology; Movies; all of these and more can seize and hold our mental ability.
He kills by --
Addiction – external stimuli has rendered countless numbers of addicts dead either by not living while alive, or not living at all.
Education – more minds than could ever be fathomed have been stolen and deadened by education.
Faulty relationships -- the death of dreams and goals of countless numbers and the loss of a loved one by death or seperation.
Worldly Goals -- seeking secular goals and failing to achieve them kills forward movement and thinking.
Believing lies -- causing us to be dismantled.
He destroys by –
Entrapping us – Once we are trapped, destruction is the final result.
Replacing the Truth – The people who have been destroyed are like the Oligarch himself. They’re being is nothing but a lie. Everything that comes out of their mouth and behavior is a lie. There is no truth in their everyday lives.
and Spiritually Detached
meaning is gone. The number two killer
in this country is SUICIDE. Self-destruction is something that those who are left behind seldom ever get over.
Following is a very short personal testimony.There is no doubt that evil is infiltrating our country like never before.This is not just happening in America, but all nations in all places are being overshadowed.The King of Kings is allowing the enemy of our souls to have the frightening freedom to attack everyone who draws breath, believers and non-believers alike.Biblical prophecy is leaning toward the Kings imminent return! The only thing that will deliver us from the enemy’s determination to kill us is the Son of God, Jesus Christ.It is through Him we are saved from eternal destruction.
I was saved in 1969 when I was a fireman in Paris, Texas.It was following a house fire when one of my fireman friends, named Rex, asked me if I had ever asked Jesus to come into my heart and save me from my sin. Rex knew that I was a club musician in addition to being a fireman. I told him not really.He asked me if I wanted to, and because of considerable prior conviction, I reluctantly said yes.He led me in the ‘sinners prayer’ and I felt my life change right on the spot.It was that simple.
When we prayed, upon Rex’s direction, I said, “Jesus, would you come into my heart and save me from my life of confusion and sin?”That was it!I felt His immediate answer.May I ask you the same question that Rex asked me.Have you ever asked Jesus to come into your heart and save you?If you sincerely do that right now, your life will never the same.
