It is easier for Satan to control and manage fallen angels than human beings. Due to the intricate requirements that full-scale deception and seduction entail as well as the limits that God Himself sets on Satan where it comes to His elect, Satan’s job is not as easy as we might expect. Moreover, due to our multiplicity of social and ethnic groupings, as a species, human beings have countless conflicting desires and agendas. Therefore, issues of self-interest lead to clashing wills in our everyday struggle to uplift all kinds of opposing agendas. To further interfere with Satan’s overall agenda, the demons themselves have different areas of responsibility that often conflict with other groups of demons.
Take the abortion issue as a simple example. Under the domain of the spirit of death known in scripture as “the death angel”, there are fallen angels who specialize in killing fetuses. Yet on the opposite side are demons who use anti-abortion zealots to bomb clinics. So one military company of demons lines up against another evil spirit company with a clashing agenda on two opposing sides–those who kill for “pro-choice” and pro-lifers who kill by assaulting pro-abortionists. In any major issue, there will be demons opposing each other on several sides of the equation, as they attempt to kill, steal and destroy.
So Satan’s army is often at odds with each other over priorities and targets of spiritual warfare. The Lord Jesus revealed that from the days of John the Baptist, Satan’s kingdom suffered violence, as his demonic forces became divided against themselves. Charismatic interpretations have suggested that God’s kingdom suffered violence, but actually it is Satan’s kingdom that suffered violence with the preaching of repentance. From that point on, Satan has failed to unify his own spiritual forces.
So who are “the violent who take it by force?” We suspect that “the violent” are the strongest in the battle, whether they be God’s or Satan’s demons. We can comprehend the nature of a spiritual battle by studying Daniel Chapter 10. An angel was bringing an answer to prayer to Daniel, when he was delayedby opposing demons. The angel declared to Daniel, “The prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me for 21 days,and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia.” So Jesus declared that from the preaching of John the Baptist, the violence between angelic beings would increase.
In the midst of spiritual militarism, Satan has reserved the Ascended Masters— the devil’s final “big guns,”— cosmic beings of great power and intelligence. In this regard, Satan’s final stand before he is thrown into the lake of fire is to mobilize his highest ranking generals to organize and rule the world before the return of Jesus Christ of Nazareth—in his final effort to prove that the world does not need the real Jesus.
As the Master of Masters, Maitreya is Satan’s top “endtime general” whose job is to bring order to the chaos of this planet by establishing a regime based on brotherhood. This is Maitreya’s “rap.” Through Benjamin Creme and others, Maitreya’s motives seem too pure and unselfish to be connected to Satan, and there lies the power behind the deception. Not only the lost of the world but even some of the elect will not suspect that the elimination of racism, poverty, starvation, unity, and sharing for the common good could possibly have its roots underlying Satan’s ultimate agenda. With this kind of positive rhetoric, the devil is portrayed in the mystery of Maitreya as “the least likely culprit.”
