[23]  Satan is the ruler of this system of things

3 years after Adam sinned and was thrown out of the garden, Satan was given secular rulership over mankind in return for his firstborn angelic rights by Michael who had agreed to ransom Adam and been given a 6,000 year headlease over Adam. and all of his begotten children - see U17. Paul says...

14 Nevertheless, death ruled as king from Adam down to Moses, even over those who had not sinned after the likeness of the transgression by Adam, who bears a resemblance to him that was to come (Romans 5).

17 For if by the trespass of the one [man] death ruled as king through that one, much more will those who receive the abundance of the undeserved kindness and of the free gift of righteousness rule as kings in life through the one [person], Jesus Christ (Romans 5).

Death is Satan's name since he brought it about. Jesus is called 'the life', and Satan is called 'the death', or perhaps just plain 'death' to his friends. So he ruled from Adam down to Moses over everyone because of the trespass of the one man Adam and more particularly due to the greater bowl of soup deal - see U17.. God himself ruled the Jews as Caesar once they agreed to obey the Law Covenant (which was both secular and sacred). Satan continued to rule mankind until the end of his 6,000 year lease on 2012Nisan14. Then he had a further extension in rulership for 2,000 days of Mark5 to payback his 1st century eviction and then a further extension for Jesus' miracle ministry which gave him another 1266 days (the length of the period wherein Jesus exercised Kingdom power in Satan's system from the first miracle at Cana on 29Heshvan29 to Pentecost on 33Sivan5)

There is no point in have such authority unless you can wield it with a global perspective. Satan has been trying to create that perspective through the earthly spying agencies. But their vision is very limited when compared to the ark from which heavenly mountain/administration one can see all the kingdoms of the earth in an instant of time...

8 Again the Devil took him along to an unusually high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory, (Matthew 4 NWT)
5 So he brought him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in an instant of time; (Luke 4 NWT)

He is referred to in scripture as the God of this system of things...

3 If, now, the good news we declare is in fact veiled, it is veiled among those who are perishing,
4 among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, that the illumination of the glorious good news about the Christ, who is the image of God, might not shine through (2 Corinthians 4).
He is 'the ruler of the world' for Jesus said, just before he died:

30 I shall not speak much with you anymore, for the ruler of the world is coming. And he has no hold on me (John 14).

Satan had no hold of Jesus because Jesus was non adamic and Satan's sublease was over Adam. But this ruler will be chucked out:

31 Now there is a judging of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out (John 12).

In fact he is locked up for most of the kingdom of God, as we shall see below. 

So the end of the world, is the end of his world, not the end of the planet. It is the end of his system of things which is the current system of things, a system which started at the founding of the world. The founding of the world was the agreement by Jesus to ransom Adam after his trespass. For that agreement gave man a future that Satan had tried to deny us. This was the start of the 7th creative day of Genesis, when God rested from his creative works:

3 For we who have exercised faith do enter into the rest, just as he has said: So I swore in my anger, They shall not enter into my rest, although his works were finished from the founding of the world [on 3993Nisan14].
4 For in one place he has said of the seventh day as follows: And God rested on the seventh day from all his works,
5 and again in this place: They shall not enter into my rest (Hebrews 4).

God's last creative act was to make some clothes for Adam and Eve at the time of their sin. Actually it took him 3 days to zap their genes and transform them from non adamic ageless to adamic ageing from 3993Nisan14-3993Nisan15, following the pattern of the death and resurrection of the Christ, the last Adam. 

21 And Jehovah God proceeded to make long garments of skin for Adam and for his wife and to clothe them (Genesis 3).

This scripture is literally true, God did make them both clothes. But it also has a greater meaning, a cryptic meaning, a Times crossword meaning, as we have seen in I15. So Adam's sin was the founding of the World, the beginning of the current system of things. And the God of this system of things, the secular ruler of this world, is Satan, whose name is death. This is how Satan was able to offer all the kingdoms of the world to Jesus, if he would perform one act of worship to him:

5 So he brought him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the inhabited earth in an instant of time.
6 And the Devil said to him: I will give you all this authority and the glory of them, because it has been delivered to me, and to whomever I wish I give it.
7 You, therefore, if you do an act of worship before me, it will all be yours.
8 In reply Jesus said to him: It is written, It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service (Luke 4).

Jesus did not say, who are you kidding? You do not own any kingdoms! He knew that Satan did have these kingdoms to give, because he gave them to him for 6,000 years in return for Satan's firstborn angelic rights - see U27. He also knew that Satan had the practice of giving them to various people. But Jesus was not interested in status, or in the glory of men, and he certainly did not want to be first lieutenant to a lying murderer whom he himself had empowered. 

It is of course a huge realisation that Satan is the God of this system of things and the ruler of the world. And we appreciate that if this concept is new to the reader it may cause some serious consternation. But remember that Satan can only act within prescribed limits set by God. God is the referee here, and Satan is just a very dirty team captain, he is not the head of FIFA (although some might disagree). But he does have a lot of supporters. 

God only allows Satan's continued existence and authority in order that we can learn from him without having ourselves to become like him. But nonetheless the world is the Titanic and Satan is the captain, and Sin is the iceberg, but Jesus is the lifeboat. However in his case it will not be the rich ones who get in first, whilst the poor are locked in below, in fact quite the reverse. Anyone and everyone who wants to get in and be saved will be, and the rich, because they falsely believe that they have got it made already, will, in general find it harder to leave their comfort zone. They can be trapped by their own physical success. Come on guys, wake up!!  In fact the scripture says

19 We know we originate with God, but the whole world is lying in the [power of the] wicked one (1 John 5).

Here is all the divine authority of Satan and the Dragon...

1254 day ministry payback (29Heshvan29 to 33Sivan5 less 33Nisan14-16 and 33Iyyar25-Sivan5) runs from 2015Chislev20 to 2019Sivan14 - 1254 days.

2012Nisan15 and 2022Shebat15 are great Sabbaths marking the end of Satan's 6,000 year lease and the end of the Dragon's 42 month lease over Adam.

Jesus paid back Satan's 2000 day heavenly eviction the minute Satan's lease expired. He repaid it from 2012Nisan16 to 2017Heshvan6. But he did not payback the loss of Caesarship during his ministry, immediately. He first took 48 months as Caesar to Adam and Cain in order to resurrect his people Abrahamically and then Isaaically (as Caesar to Abraham). He had to do that in order for true churches to continue to exist. Because we could only work as Adam for 6,000 years from 3989Sivan6 BC, no more. Then at the Isaaic Passover on 2016Sivan14, whilst he was Caesar to Abraham (a role he did not relinquish) he executed LW Abraham and converted us to become LW Isaac on 2016Sivan16. Jesus has to be Caesar to Adam or to Abraham in order to resurrect him (or he can gene zap us on the 14th and we automatically receive a standing resurrection on the 16th?). Caesars to Adam are appointed/installed at 1NC type (weekly interposing Sabbath) first fruits/Pentecost. Caesars to Cain, Abraham and Isaaic are appointed/installed at Zoar (festival interposing Sabbath) first fruits/Pentecost19.

15Satan's 6,000 year lease from 3989Nisan17 BC ended on 2012Nisan14 AD. Then we had the 2000 day possession payback period from 2012Nisan16 to 2017Heshvan6, then the 8 month war of Revelation12:7 to 2018Tammuz14, the heavenly demonic Passover. Then 4 months of Revelation 12:8 of no place being found for them in heaven to 2018Heshvan24 (So the demon possession ends on 2024Tammuz14, 30+2000 days later, 12x of Mark 13:32 after 2012Tammuz14, the start of Cainian conversion). Then 30 days down Jacob's ladder to 2018Chislev24 (whereas the 3rd Holy Spirit descends from 2018Heshvan17 of Genesis 7:11 to 2018Chislev17 to police them). Then a further 2000 pigs of Mark5 from 2018Heshvan21 to 2024Tammuz14, the end of demon possession.

The long sword of the one upon the 4th horse of the apocalypse runs from 2023Shebat22 to 2024Nisan20, the last day of Hebrew winter as regards WMDs. The ride ends on 2024Iyyar14, the absolute end of non salvation covenant Adam and non salvation covenant Cain. The long sword coming out of the mouth of the one upon the white horse of Revelation19 runs for the 132x of Revelation19:21 from 2024Ab2, the burning of the beast, to 2024Chislev14, the 1st death Passover, the absolute end of entry into the first death, the absolute end of Adam and Cain.  
Death (Satan2) must ride the 4th horse and that ride begins on 2023Shebat22. So death (Satan2) must still be here on 2023Shebat22. He should be the rider for the entire ride until the end of the flood and then until the end of unsaved Adam and Cain. Because the demons have incited the sexual immorality which is predicted by Leviticus18 to cause the land to vomit us out. Land vomit is lava.

22 And you shall not lie with a male as one lies with a woman; it [is] a perversion.
23 And you shall not give your semen with any animal, for uncleanness with it. And a woman shall not stand before an animal to lie down with it; it [is] a [shameful] mixing.
24 Do not defile yourself with all these, for with all these the nations have been defiled, which I [am] casting out before you;
25 and the land is defiled, and I will visit its iniquity on it; and the land is vomiting out [those] living [in it];
26 and you, you shall keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not do [any] of all these disgusting acts; [neither] the native nor the alien who is staying in your midst.
27 For the men of the land who [are] before you have done all these disgusting things, and the land is defiled.
28 [Do not do these] lest the land vomit you out for your defiling it, as it has vomited out the nation that [was] before you. (Leviticus 18 GLT)

Likewise in the judicial example of Sodom and Gomorrah of Genesis19 is explained by Jude...

6 And the angels that did not keep their original position but forsook their own proper dwelling place he has reserved with eternal bonds under dense darkness for the judgment of the great day.
7 So too Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities about them, after they in the same manner as the foregoing ones [the demons of verse6] had committed fornication excessively and gone out after flesh for unnatural use, are placed before [us] as a [warning] example by undergoing the judicial punishment of age-lasting fire (Jude 1 NWT).

And explained by Peter...

5 and he did not hold back from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with 7 others when he brought a deluge upon a world of ungodly people;
6 and by reducing the cities Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them, setting a pattern for ungodly persons of things to come; (2 Peter 2 NWT)

It is the descended demons who are causing the woke cult and the genital mutilation of minors for the sexual and financial gratification of perverted adults. The lesson of Genesis19 and Leviticus18 and Jude and 2Peter2 is that perversion brings lava. It is that simple. Climate change does not bring lava. Perversion especially of innocent children will bring it. For all the men of the city from boy to old man were trying to have sex with the two angelically possessed men staying with Lot.

4 Before they could lie down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, surrounded the house, from boy to old man, all the people in one mob.
5 And they kept calling out to Lot and saying to him: Where are the men who came in to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have intercourse with them. (Genesis 19 NWT).

3 demons to each pig denotes 3 demonic fulfilments of the 2,000 days of possession, making a total of 6,000 days of demon possession, a legion of days. One in the first century and 2 in the 21st (the payback and the possession)15.
