2 Corinthians 4:4 (KJV) In whom the god G2316 of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2 Corinthians 4:4 (New Living Translation) Satan, who is the god G2316 of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
Yahusha (Jesus) is speaking in these next verses
John 14:30 (New Living Translation) “I don’t have much more time to talk to you, because the ruler of this world approaches. He has no power over me, 31 but I will do what the Father requires of me, so that the world will know that I love the Father. Come, let’s be going.
John 14:30 (KJV) Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
god-G2316-θεόςtheós, theh'-os; of uncertain affinity; a deity, especially (with G3588) the supreme Divinity; figuratively, a magistrate; by Hebraism, very:—X exceeding, God, god(-ly, -ward)
Prince/Ruler-G758-ἄρχωνárchōn, ar'-khone; present participle of G757; a first (in rank or power):—chief (ruler), magistrate, prince, ruler.
Definition of archon

Definiton of Magistrate : an official entrusted with administration of the laws: such as a : a principal official exercising governmental powers over a major political unit (such as a nation) b : a local official exercising administrative and often judicial functions c : a local judiciary official having limited original jurisdiction (see jurisdiction sense 1) especially in criminal cases
But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes G758 of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.
God: H430- אֱלֹהִים ʼĕlôhîym, el-o-heem'; plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:—angels, × exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), × (very) great, judges, × mighty.
And God H430 said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
** H3050-יָהּYâhh, yaw; contraction for H3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name:—Jah, the Lord, most vehement. Compare names in '-iah,' '-jah.'
And the LORD H3068 God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
As you can see the Definitions and the Words for God are different when comparing them. Elohiym means of The Lord God, angels, magistrates... This is Very important because we Must understand that when the word God is used, It may not Always mean The Lord God Almighty.
We know that there are fallen angels/demons that are in this world.
And the angels which kept not their first estate, G746 but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
First Estate-G746-ἀρχήarchḗ, ar-khay'; from G756; (properly abstract) a commencement, or (concretely) chief (in various applications of order, time, place, or rank):—beginning, corner, (at the, the) first (estate), magistrate, power, principality, principle, rule
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons H1121 of God H430 saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
For a better understanding we look at Enoch
Azazel: In the Dead Sea Scrolls, the name Azazel occurs in the line 6 of 4Q203, The Book of Giants, which is a part of the Enochic literature found at Qumran. According to the Book of Enoch, which brings Azazel into connection with the Biblical story of the fall of the angels, located on Mount Hermon, a gathering-place of demons of old,Azazel is one of the leaders of the rebellious Watchers in the time preceding the Flood; he taught men the art of warfare, of making swords, knives, shields, and coats of mail, and women[clarification needed] the art of deception by ornamenting the body, dyeing the hair, and painting the face and the eyebrows, and also revealed to the people the secrets of witchcraft and corrupted their manners, leading them into wickedness and impurity until at last he was, at Yahweh's command, bound hand and foot by the archangel Raphael and chained to the rough and jagged rocks of [Ha] Dudael (= Beth Ḥadudo), where he is to abide in utter darkness until the great Day of Judgment, when he will be cast into the fire to be consumed forever. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azazel
Enoch Chapter 8:1-9 And Azâzêl taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures. 2. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjâzâ taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, Armârôs the resolving of enchantments, Barâqîjâl, (taught) astrology, Kôkabêl the constellations, Ezêqêêl the knowledge of the clouds, , and Sariêl the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven http://www.israel-a-history-of.com/book-of-enoch.html
Enoch 69:6-7 And the name of the third is Gadreel; this is the one that showed all the deadly blows to the sons of men. And he led astray Eve. And he showed the weapons of death to the children of men, the shield and the breastplate, and the sword for slaughter, and all the weapons of death to the sons of men. https://bookofenochreferences.wordpress.com/2014/05/07/the-book-of-enoch-chapter-69/

We Must do All we can to withstand the temptations of Satan and that begins with Understanding Who's World this is now and why It must be Destroyed. Many people steer clear of Revelation and You Should Not because Everything that is Going to Occur, The Bible Has Warned you about from Genesis up to Revelation Chapter 1 when Things kick off. Even in Enoch, Yasher, Jubilees, Tobit and other books taken out speak of the destruction of this world in more detail and ties everything together. Do not continue to walk blind by the Principalities of this earth age. That will get you killed.
