  11. That man was also created as the champion of God in this great contest concerning the word God speaks.
  12.

  56. That the four words of Satan, “Did God indeed say,” covers every word God speaks in the thinking of “Christian” theology.
  57. That the greatest defiance in the church of what God speaks is the belief that the goal of the believer is to “go to heaven when you die.”
  58. That Satan is satisfied that God’s word should be fulfilled in heaven (it already is) so long as it is never fulfilled in the earth.

  72. That all human government stands in full defiance of Jesus Christ.
  73. That the final showdown upon this earth centers around two things Jesus said.  First, when He revealed the thoughts of the Jewish leaders who opposed Him, “Come, let us kill Him, that the inheritance will be ours.” Second, these words, “Love your enemies.”
  74. That the final issue on this earth is over the claim of the inheritance.
  75. That the Jewish people continue to reject the Messiah God sent them, claiming that the inheritance belongs to them separate from Jesus.
  76. That the head of the beast that was wounded unto death and now lives is the government of the modern nation of Israel.

  82. That the “false prophet” of Revelation 13 includes modern science and technology that is able to do wondrous things including the American infatuation with dropping fire from heaven upon the earth and consuming her alleged enemies in the flames of agony and violence.

  84. That the final mercy of God will be shown through His second witness as they love their enemies, love that consumes their enemies as fire, especially the mercy shown to those who claim that they are Jews but are of the synagogue of Satan. 
  85. That the mercy shown to those whom the whole world will understand in the end are least deserving of mercy will usher in the rule of Christ.

  87. That God’s second witness of Christ, in rising out of death, will defeat death forever.
  88. That the translation of the Greek word “aeon” into the Latin word “eternal” was a part of the great fall of the church into Roman darkness and apostasy from which she is not recovered.
