Have do you feel about the council of the gods!

Post by bibleman »

Brian Godawa and Dr. Michael S. Heiser have a lot to say about the council of the gods.

Psalm 82:1 (ESV) God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:

The fault in Bible complications is not with God or the Bible, but with men who refuse to believe what God says and think we have to interpret what He says in order to get the meaning. Dake Bible -Mark 11:17 note

Thanks for posting this video. I'm hoping to listen to it, soon.

I'm still digesting the idea of the Divine Council, but it does seem to be there in Scripture. At least I think so.


John 14:21 New King James Version
"He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him."

Thanks for posting this. It appears well thought out. He makes a point in the video that I think we often tend to forget and that is basically we are about running things with God. We were not created to do nothing. The universe requires work to "keep the lights on" and the earth will not remain renewed after its state is changed without the work required to sustain it - if you know what I mean +wink

I am not familiar with the guy teaching it, but then I don't involve myself with too many teachers out there. I thought most of it follows scripture closely and I did not see any overly glaring red flags while viewing it - maybe a couple minor things that might be questioned and addressed. His views seem to support scripture.

BTW, Bibleman, what is your opinion of this work?

This is a interesting Question how do i feel about it. When i study the bible i do not use my feeling but let the bible revel itself in context. If this understanding of the Hebrew language and first person world view is correct then it is the bible in context.

Well I certainly don't agree with every single point that is made by this author.

BUT there is a lot of truth in this divine council understanding. Such as Satan as a spiritual ruler, Fallen Spiritual Princes of the book of Daniel who are at war with the Angels of God, and the Watchers who dispense the decrees of nations who are to rise and fall, the Demons of the NT who exercise authority over the heats of men, that Jesus dealt with.

So it is like a lot of things as Brother Hagin said: "Be at least as smart as an old cow, eat the good grass and spit out the bad."

An interesting topic that needs more thought and study for sure.

Yeah, I didn't like that at all.

But sadly MOST of the Christian world (except the few of us who have been enlightened by the Bible as Dake pointed it out to us) believe that false teaching. I run into it in most every book I have and every believer I encounter.

A little more "small" bite size simple understanding of the divine council.

Only 6 minutes long, very understandable and I think will be most agreeable to the readers of this board.

Thanks for the response. That is pretty much my take as well. I watched his full lecture on Reversing Hermon I think it was called and really appreciated his content and how he came to his various views about things. He appears to be a studious individual which is more than one can say for a lot of folks out there teaching these days.

I have the Book of Enoch, but wished I could get my hands on 1, 2, and 3 Enoch. I really enjoyed the Book of Enoch years ago in my earlier studies.
