This beautiful valley of Jezreel/Megiddo will never see an end-time battle

In defence of the sidelined God Jehovah, Creator of the Universe and Father of Humanity
For a bit of a background check it may be good
to first read the sub-menu Angels page.
There isn’t a great deal to say about this narcissistic messenger whose envy moved him to want to take over rather than to remain subordinate to Jehovah.
It did give substance, however, to his stupidity and an intelligence yet to be fully programmed for his assignment of serving and guiding humanity to complete the process of creation through the 7th day, while Jehovah ‘rested’ relative to any earth-related creative activity. This assignment was meant to terminate after 7000 years when he would have reported back to God about a job well done
The guilt merchants of religion have used these legitimate expressions of Jesus and the Apostles in their power grabbing blame-game to assert that everything outside the church/denomination that sprang from the original congregation of forgiven, anointed Jews, including Islam, is in the power of Satan who must of necessity be the God of everything and everyone outside of their clique.
It was Israel who were under the power of Satan while under the Law. Jesus made it very clear to their leaders, who was actually ruling and profoundly influencing them as they wickedly shepherded the flock of Jacob under their care.
John 8:44: Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and standeth not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.
Paul showed that Satan had become the God of Israel's age or epoch under the Law covenant:
2 Corinthians 4:4 in whose case the god of this world <165> has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
It was the God of their age or epoch under the law who had blinded those not believing that their Messiah and Redeemer had come and died for them as a Ransom. They desperately needed such a redemption, for their wicked sins against their law covenant.
That age was still continuing until the greatest tribulation ever to befall any people commenced at the Roman onslaught in 70 CE.
The sheep Jesus had to die for them as their second Passover and final atonement sacrifice to redeem them from their accrued sins against their law covenant:
Ephesians1:1-2 And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world <2889>, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
Sons of disobedience can only apply to those who failed to obey laws and regulations only they had to disobey.
John 12:31 "Now judgment is upon this world <2889>; now the ruler of this world <2889> shall be cast out.
When Jesus was saying these words, their world was soon to experience their hour of judgment in 70 CE.
Colossians 1:13 For He delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,
Though their God Jehovah had already redeemed them through Jesus' death and had now transferred the little flock of believing Jews to the kingdom of His beloved Son the disbelieving nation of unrepentant Israelites/Jews were yet to experience the full fury of Jehovah's continuing vengeance for many centuries beyond 70 CE.
2 Timothy 2:26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.
True, the law of enslavement (Galatians 4:22-25) was given by God at Mt Sinai, but the devotion of Israel changed into one accorded to beasts, humans and philosophies in continuing layers of transgressions until there was no way out for them to ecape total annihilation other than by Ransom.
1 John 5:19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world <2889>lies in the power of the evil one.
Here an assurance from God via John's quill that the forgiven little flock of Jews, later joined by complementing Gentile numbers, were now certainly in tune with Jehovah's purpose while continuing to run with His promises to their final and intended place in heaven as kings and priests.
Satan may have deceived mankind in the manner of having done the same to Eve, but he is not the God of the world of mankind, the inhabited earth <3625> he deceived the same manner as he has never become the God of Eve .
