“… What are “myths”? They are simply repeats of old lifeless mythologies about lesser “gods” and “goddesses” that have never existed and never will, but they have 2 levels to them. The first level is that they are a demonic counterfeit to something God has made and aimed to get people to worship demons or something in the created world rather than worshipping the Creator (Romans 1:16-25). The second level is that they are a distraction for humans – an illusion of choice, as it were. Myths and legends are also used as a legend or fanciful tale about a living human that satan and his fellow demons wanted to make look great – even as a “god”. The whole topic of “gods” and worship of idols is because the demonically-driven leaders around us want to be worshipped and obeyed absolutely as though they are actual “gods” and “goddesses”. You see this going on way back to Nimrod (leader of the rebels against God in the building of the Tower of Babel), then the Egyptian pharaohs, then again with the Babylonian, Mede, Persian, Greek and Roman leaders, as well as the Arab leaders and the Vikings and European royalties, etc, etc. All royalty and high-level leaders who reject the Bible and refuse to submit to God, instead present themselves as “lesser gods”, and are then promoted and covered-for by their false prophets and prophetesses. Modern false prophets (and prophetesses) who cover for leaders who want to be worshipped and served as “gods” are: Joel Osteen, TD Jakes, Rick Warren, Joel Hunter, John MacArthur, John Piper, and Joyce Meyers, Beth Moore, Jennifer Rothschild, Paula White, etc. Part of what these false prophets play off of is like the Vatican Jesuit – Hitler. They pretend that this individual (an antichrist – opposes Christ) made it into a position of top-authority (on planet earth) and therefore they twist the Scripture that this individual has the “right” to rule “from God” – and then they misquote passages such as John 10:34 and mis-apply Romans 13 and 1st Peter chapters 2,3 and 5. But when they contradict God, God inspires people to stand against them (Matthew 11:4-19, 1 Corinthians 10:3-5, Ephesians 5:11-13, Eph. 6). Those who live upright can stand up to any evil with His authority, though these sin-led/demon-led people never acknowledge that. As satan rejects God’s authority – to their destruction and judgment, so do they. The rebellious and evil leaders who should fear God and do what’s right (and are not), show who they really are when they say the right words but then do evil. And when the righteous who know Jesus and the Bible claim those judgments against those evil leaders, the judgments and wrath of God catch up to those leaders and God will oppose them (Matthew 18:6) – according to His many promises on that subject. So, resist the evildoers and leaders, in speech/text and prayer….”
