Satyr

September 10, 2018

       But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there, Isaiah 13:21.

 

       If a person is inclined to believe every word of a King James Bible (as I am), then they must be prepared to believe that satyrs will exist in the Millennium.  This is one of the words that critics of the King James Bible love to point out as silly and an obviously poor translation.  What would it mean if there really were satyrs living in the wilderness where Babylon now sits, and there was a reservation for them and other creatures beside the lake of fire?  

       And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.  It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.  But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.  They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.  And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.  The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest, Isaiah 34:10-14.

        One of the Lord's description of men is that they are inventors of evil things (Romans 1:30).  Men have long experimented with bestiality and tried to pervert science in order to bring forth half human and half animal hybrids.  There are references in the Nuremberg Trials to Nazi doctors trying to bring forth such creatures and using hapless female victims for their unspeakable crimes against nature. 

       We live in an age where genes and DNA are toyed with.  A little research on the internet will reveal that embryos have been created in labs that are half human and half chicken.  Whether or not such a creature would be viable at birth is not the issue here.  The issue is that unaccountable men have reached the ability to create mutant hybrids that only a generation ago seemed like bizarre science fiction.  Your bible tells you that they will succeed in crossing goats with men.  It also tells you that God will pity those creatures and make a reservation for them.  

       Imagine for a moment the torment of being half goat and half human.  The yearning to go speak to a group of pretty young girls in a park would be there, or the thought of going to run and play with young men would be there, but the grotesqueness of your person and the real draw of bestial inclinations would forever alienate you from both goat and man.  Could God save such a creature, or would it need saving?  Perhaps that would explain      I John 5:4, For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith  

          The satyr is a picture of the believer prior to receiving his new body.  He has two natures that contradict one another.  Just as the satyr has a nature that would live as a goat, the believer is stuck with his old adamic nature.  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members, Romans 7:23.   That same believer is indwelt with the divine nature. Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust, II Peter 1:4.   

          There has never before been a creature like a Christian.  Two distinct and contrary natures war within him seeking to have control. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?  Surely the Christian is a new creature.  In this life we know the Lord's pity. Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy, James 5:11.   Much can be learned from believing every word in a King James Bible.
