Well I am being asked to look at the 'Prince of the Air' in the bible due to the way that Christians tend to interpret it. The one time that the 'Prince of the power of the air' is mentioned is in Ephesians.
"And you hath he quickened, who were (spiritually) dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of the flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others".
George Lamsa, the Aramaic biblical scholar understood it as relating to earthly government leaders, in other words those that live in their heads rather than their hearts.
The passage mentions the POWER and the element of AIR, so is it to do with thought and mindsets? If my memory serves me well, in the Gospel of Peace, the Angel of Air is different to the Angel of Power.
In astrology, the element of AIR is to do with the mind. So the Prince of the Power of the Air represents a spirit that as the power to impact on the minds of the people to lead them astray. The air sign to do with communication is also gemini and that just happens to be my moon sign, and Rev 12 tells you that I have the moon under my feet.
The criteria for the impact is thus:
1. Spiritually dead
2. Trespasses against others
3. Transgresses the spiritual law e.g. sins
Now who would fit that criteria, who are prime examples of people like that? Rupert Murdoch and Newscorp. Who else? Obama, Gadaffi, the Prince of Persia, some musicians and song writers. Some film makers.
However, there were no newspapers in biblical times. So how did they get the news? In the book of Ester the scribes wrote the news and it was distributed by men on horseback.
Let us look at the element of air in the OT.
In the book of Exodus, Moses throws soot from the furnace into the air, and it harms those that are harming his people. Festering boils broke out on the people and animals. What color is soot? Black, what color is ink and newsprint? Black.
Where did they send the children in Victorian times? Up in the air, down the chimneys into the black soot. Do you remember the children's puppet 'Sooty'?
Funny, I was given the smell of fireworks earlier today and fireworks night in the UK is the 5th of November. Guy Fawkes night.
In the Proverbs, "Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions." Proverbs 18:2 As we know people do that on air all of the whole time, both on radio, TV, conference calls and video channels. Alex Jones and Charlie Veitch were perfect examples of the Prince of the Air. So it is also about live performances, live action, theatre and film modern day. Oh the drama......
Now Christ spoke about the birds of the air. 'Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?' Matthew 6:26
Those that stood against Paul "were shouting and throwing off their cloaks and flinging dust into the air". Just like Moses did to those that would not let his people go. So the Roman commander, (military) took Paul, he was flogged and interrogated. Does it remind you of the history of the plagues that happened in Egypt and Spain after the persecution of the Jewish people?
"Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave 1 Corinthians 9:25-27 In this passage they are striking their own bodies does it remind you of the Catholic Church? Goodness gracious me, whatever next. The Catholic Church was self-harming until current day.
"Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air." 1 Corinthians 14:9, clearly the air is to do with communication, how and where one communicates.
Its the difference between the arrow hitting the target and missing it, and the word for sin is said to have come from Greek Archery. Transgression of the spiritual law e.g the dharma in Buddhism and Hinduism.
In Greek philosophy it was to do with people that launched their arrows into the air to reach the bulls eye and those that missed the target transgressed the law. It was an analogy for those that didn't aim straight and stand upright.
Now we all know that the wind can impact on the flight of an arrow, and so can the one that is launching it. So can one cannot truly understand the passage that mentions the AIR, if one does not understand the power of the wind and where the wind is coming from.
You gladly put up with fools since you are so wise. In fact, you even put up with anyone who enslaves you or exploits you or takes advantage of you or puts on airs or slaps you in the face. 2 Corinthians 11:20 That's Paul speaking again. Now what did Christ say about the slaps in the face? If you embrace the scriptures then it is "Turn the other cheek". How many who claim to be Christians honestly do that?
However, would he ever allow a man to hit a woman? Certainly not, he took the men on when they were stoning a woman for adultery. His forgiveness and mercy did not allow the public or harm to come to any woman or man in distress.
So it is clear, that the media and communication industry are all part of the Prince of the Power of the Air because they do impact on where and how the wind blows.
Is that the devil as the Christians say it is? In my humble view, only if said media and communication industry lead the children astray, and plenty of religionists and the corporations have done that with their communication, including some Christians, Jews and Muslims. However, I have to add, that the energy of the analogy of the 'devil' does not exist in my reality. Although I do see Darth Vader when I see the riot police.
Now the fact that the last passage featured from Paul is chapter 11:20 is also divine providence, because 11 is the master number of duality and 20 is the number of judgement. Its like a boomerang back onto the Church, and the Corporations and on that which it was founded, straw.
So what did the Prophets predict about the straw?
"The hand of the LORD will rest on this mountain; but Moab will be trampled in their land as straw is trampled down in the manure."Isaiah 25:10
"You levy a straw tax on the poor and impose a tax on their grain. Therefore, though you have built stone mansions, you will not live in them; though you have planted lush vineyards, you will not drink their wine." Amos 5:11
Well there you have it folks, the tax man, the tax collectors, bankers, financial institutions, rich and wealthy.
"If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work." 1 Corinthians 3:11-13 In other words, no religious buildings were to be built for religious worship. In fact, nor was anything else meant to be built on straw e.g. religion. Christ also predicted what would happen to those that built their houses on sand, and how they would get washed away. What does sand relate to in spiritual symbology? The Middle East and pain.
As we know the wind is part of the elements and the bible does speak of the elemental spiritual forces.
Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: Colossians 2:20. Now that is about earthly reality and its realities. So dear Cameron, my people do not have to submit to you or your rules. The bible tells us so. No wonder they removed the bible from the courts it stands against them.
