Began in the Heart of Satan
An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
1 Samuel 15:23
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord,
he hath also rejected thee from being king.
Likewise when the Lord sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying, Go up and possess the land which I have given you; then ye rebelled against the commandment of the Lord your God, and ye believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice.
Ye have been rebellious against the Lord from the day that I knew you.
For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour.
In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them:
in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them,
and carried them all the days of old. But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit:
therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.
1 Cor. 10:11
Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples:
and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come.
