True Word of Yah & Education; Part 1: Who's World is This??
You may be reading this title and go, Well didn't Yah ( God in English) Create everything? Or maybe you thinkg that it's His world and evil has taken over.
I want to offer you a new perspective. Something I was shown over the weekend and have been looking into since. If you read any of my posts, I use Strong's Concordnance to provide definitions of Hebrew or Greek words depending on Torah or New Testament. I do this so you can see the correct word that was used and translated into English. As you know, not all translations are correct. Hebrew and Greek mean different things than some English word and this is Very important to keep in mind when reading these next lessons. I will be using different Bible Translations as well and not just the Cepher of King James. So let's begin part 1.
Part 1: Who's World is This???
2 Corinthians 4:4 (KJV) In whom the god 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 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.
Reading this next part is where the tides turn from what you have been taught in churches and sunday schools. To get you to understand why Yahusha said satan is the god of this world you need to go back into Genesis 1 and break it down into the original Hebrew.
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (This is the same verse in all versions so no need to compare)
The beginning: H7225- רֵאשִׁית rêʼshîyth, ray-sheeth'; from the same as H7218; the first, in place, time, order or rank (specifically, a firstfruit):—beginning, chief(-est), first(-fruits, part, time), principal thing.
*****H7218- רֹאשׁ rôʼsh, roshe; from an unused root apparently meaning to shake; the head (as most easily shaken), whether literal or figurative (in many applications, of place, time, rank, etc.):—band, beginning, captain, chapiter, chief(-est place, man, things), company, end, × every (man), excellent, first, forefront, (be-)head, height, (on) high(-est part, (priest)), × lead, × poor, principal, ruler, sum, top.
Isaiah 14-14: “How you are fallen from heaven, O shining star, son of the morning! You have been thrown down to the earth, you who destroyed the nations of the world. 13 For you said to yourself, ‘I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north. 14 I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.’
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.
H410- אֵל ʼêl, ale; shortened from H352; strength; as adjective, mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity):—God (god), × goodly, × great, idol, might(-y one), power, strong. Compare names in '-el.'
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/
Created: H1254- בָּרָא bârâʼ, baw-raw'; a primitive root; (absolutely) to create; (qualified) to cut down (a wood), select, feed (as formative processes):—choose, create (creator), cut down, dispatch, do, make (fat).
The Heavens: H8064- שָׁמַיִם shâmayim, shaw-mah'-yim; dual of an unused singular שָׁמֶה shâmeh; from an unused root meaning to be lofty; the sky (as aloft; the dual perhaps alluding to the visible arch in which the clouds move, as well as to the higher ether where the celestial bodies revolve):—air, × astrologer, heaven(-s).
To be lofty means: a : elevated in character and spirit : noble lofty idealsb : elevated in status : superior the less lofty customers of the bar 2: having a haughty overbearing manner : supercilious She showed a lofty disregard for their objections.3a : rising to a great height : impressively high lofty mountains b : remote, esoteric

Astrology: archaic : astronomy 2: the divination of the supposed influences of the stars and planets on human affairs and terrestrial events by their positions and aspects
Ask yourself this question...Who worships the sun, moon and stars? Do you know why? Because their god used them in ways that were not pleasing to Yah. We are told Not to!!!
Answer: Egypt, Aztecs, Stonehenge...for example. To learn more follow this link http://www.reviewofreligions.org/2306/ancient-sun-worship/
Deuteronomy 4:19-20 And when you look up into the sky and see the sun, moon, and stars—all the forces of heaven—don’t be seduced into worshiping them. The Lord your God gave them to all the peoples of the earth. 20 Remember that the Lord rescued you from the iron-smelting furnace of Egypt in order to make you his very own people and his special possession, which is what you are today.
And the earth: H776 אֶרֶץ ʼerets, eh'-rets; from an unused root probably meaning to be firm; the earth (at large, or partitively a land):—× common, country, earth, field, ground, land, × natins, way, + wilderness, world.
To be firm means: a : securely or solidly fixed in place
his teeth were firm b : not weak or uncertain : vigorous
a firm handshake c : having a solid or compact structure that resists stress or pressure
firm apples 2a (1) : not subject to change or revision
a firm offer a firm date(2) : not subject to price weakness : steady
firm commodities b : not easily moved or disturbed : steadfast
The word Wilderness is important here as well. Natins means nations but wilderness means: H4057- מִדְבָּר midbâr, mid-bawr'; from H1696 in the sense of driving; a pasture (i.e. open field, whither cattle are driven); by implication, a desert; also speech (including its organs):—desert, south, speech, wilderness.
****H1696 means דָבַר dâbar, daw-bar'; a primitive root; perhaps properly, to arrange; but used figuratively (of words), to speak; rarely (in a destructive sense) to subdue:—answer, appoint, bid, command, commune, declare, destroy, give, name, promise, pronounce, rehearse, say, speak, be spokesman, subdue, talk, teach, tell, think, use (entreaties), utter, × well, × work.
So the wilderness in any part of Scripture is not just the wild as we may envision it but it means to be taught to subdue to teach. To lead to Pastor...get it your pastor is suppose to lead you back to Yah.
So in summary and I do hope your discernment is working: Yah is Always in control yet hasatan stated he wanted to replace Yah and do things better. He wanted to be like the Most High and he went to create this world. As you see, heaven means astronomy, not heaven in the since of where Yah's Kingdom is. Genesis 1:1 Never mentions Yah... not once.
