My Dad had a theory that all the high up people in this world of great fame, fortune, and influence acheived their status by compromising their beliefs and actually selling their souls to the devil to gain their power.
Although this might sound ludicrous to some people, it's really not too far-fetched if you believe the Bible. For it is there we read about Satan as the "god of this world " in 2 Corinthians 4:4: "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."
We are further warned in the Bible in Ephesians 6:11-12, that the Devil is the ruler of this world, when we read: "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
And what about Satan talking to Jesus in Luke 4:6, when he says, "And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it."
These verses show that even though Jesus Christ is more powerful than the Devil, Jesus has allowed Satan to be the ruler of this world until he returns again at the battle of Armageddon.
If this be the case, then wouldn't it stand to reason that the easiest way to rise through the ranks and rise to a position of power in this world would be to SELL YOUR SOUL TO THE DEVIL?
Of course, this would only be true if you believe in the DEVIL, and some people, who claim to be educated and therefore smarter than everyone else claim there is no God or Devil. But if there is a God, then there must be a Devil! (That's just simple logic!)
With this in mind, why don't you study history and see if the highest, most powerful people in the world are believers in God and the Bible. Usually they are not. At least, they "claim" not to be. However, the majority of them do believe in God, but instead of calling him Jehovah, or Lord, or Adonai, they call their God LUCIFER, and they believe he is the one true God, and the creator of all things. In fact, they even call him The Great Architect of the Universe. (See Masononic teachings for more).
With this in mind, could it be that the most powerful people throughout the centuries have been worshippers of Lucifer? It's more than possible, it's a historical fact, which has been proven on many occasions. (Just look at the history of the world, and the great persecution against the true God's people, the Jews and the Christians).
Let's just look at the power hungry in our day for an example. Those in power now all seem to hold heavily to the teaching of "Social Justice" and "Socialism." Where do they get their ideas? The majority of them were taught them in Secular schools. And most of them in power today follow communistic prinicples. Their favorite book appears to be one by a man named Saul Alinsky, entitled, "Rules for Radicals."
One doesn't have to go very far into that book to see the Satanic influence, and the worship of Lucifer. In fact, you don't even have to go much further than the first page! For there we read Saul Alinksy's dedication to guess who? None other than the Devil! Read it for yourself below:
Sounds a lot like what the Bible says, doesn't it? For there, we find Satan rebelling against what's RIGHT, and becoming REPROBATE, and then founding his own kingdom. How does he build his kingdom? With RADICALS!
This is just one of a million examples. But one thing is certain. It is more than just coincidence that through the history of mankind, the cruel, powerful leaders have all had one thing in common, they've all paid homage to Satan, and followed in his footsteps. One must stop and think, "Did they have to sell their souls to the Devil to get into their positions of power?"
Take Hitler for example. He claims he heard voices, and that they helped him throughout his lifetime to raise to power. Could that have been demons--the tool of Satan to bring about his kingdom and put into power whomsoever he will?
It's a known fact that Hitler and his cronies all dabbled in the Occult, which is nothing short of "Witchcraft" or "consorting with the Devil."
As one studies other rulers throughout the centuries and millenia, it's not hard to find worship of idols (which the Bible connects with the worship of demons), witchcraft, conjurations, astrology, and more, which the Bible is very much against!
Luciferianism is no joke. It is powerful, and if one is willing to sell themselves to the worship of Lucifer, it is certain they can easily multiply unto themselves power, wealth, fame, and prestige. But at what cost? Sadly that cost is their own soul. And the Bible question still sums it up nicely:
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? (Mark 8:36)
