Why is the truth hidden? One main reason is so that satan doesn’t know who he is. Satan is a power (Eph 6:12 (KJV)) not a self-aware being. If he were then this question could not be answered:
“Why didn’t/doesn’t/wouldn’t Satan read the bible the way that the world does and just NOT do what is predicted of him and make God and the bible a liar?”.
Satan was loosed (Rev 20:7 (KJV)) when he became more powerful than the dragon, represented by communist China, a people that believe that man has control of his own destiny and no need of God. Satan was loosed when he became more powerful than the beast, represented by Russia, the nation that sold its birthright (like Esau) to lead the world to God and salvation. Satan was loosed when he became more evil than the false prophet, represented by the Roman Catholic church that does more evil in the name of God than ever before. Satan was loosed in August of 1945 (Rev 13:13 (KJV)). Yes satan does NOT know who he is:
A demon is an evil thought i.e. a lie.
A devil is a person that carries out that evil i.e. a liar.
Satan is the POWER that these devils have i.e. the father of lies (John 8:44 (KJV) U.S.A. “in God we trust” and “one nation under God”.
To believe that this nation (the most powerful nation that has ever been U.S.A.) is not prophesied in the bible, or is just a foot note, is to be naïve or blind. Seven times civilization has risen to a major power. Seven times it has been destroyed by God (Rev 20:2-3 (KJV)) and today being the eighth (Rev 17:11 (KJV)).
Some men would count the users of this phrase, “when I get around to it” as slackers, and so would God. Most teach that these verses mean that God has no concept of time, 8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness…2 Peter 3:8-9 (KJV).
They couldn’t be farther from the truth. God did not say “when I get around to it” no, he has a timetable and his elect know this.
The world needs to quit reading the bible like a novel and seek the truth that is hidden in the stories, fables, and symbolism.

My youtube video is a little dry. I am not a movie maker but the video is not for entertainment it is for those that truly seek and want the truth. So please watch it all the way through and read all cited scripture.
May God have mercy on his children. Amen.
