Ben Abbadan, Perdition’s Son

While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy Name: those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the Scripture might be fulfilled. ~ John 17:12 [King James Versionperdition.jpeg1

When I was with them, I guarded them by the power of Your Name, which You have given to Me; yes, I kept watch over them; and not one of them was destroyed [except the one meant for destruction, so that the Tanakh might be fulfilled] (Jewish Complete Bible).

Who or what is this ” son of perdition“?

  •  Perdition is translated as ‘destruction’ , ruin ,  a state of character and destiny, implied for all those who oppose nor choose Elohim Almighty God!
    • The son refers to the Hebrew concept of ben, son of beliya’al, son of hasatan, son of Satan.

  • Hell, or the realm of the dead, is “naked before him and destruction hath no covering” nor atonement per Job 26:6!
  • Beliyia’al : without profit, worthlessness, destruction, wickedness [ also evil, naughty, ungodly,wicked ], from beliy: nothing or destruction;
  • Ezekiel 31:15-18 speaks about the ‘torrents of beliyia’al‘ or the snares of death, cords of Sheol [hell]:
  • “I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him  down to Sh’ol with them that descend into the pit: and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water , shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth.” ~ Ezekiel 31:16

  • 2 Thessalonians 2:3 speaks of ” a man of lawlessness”, God’s apocalyptic enemy:

    • We are not to be deceived by anyone!

    …That ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God! ~ Philippians 1:27b, 28 [KJV]

    • The lost will be cast into lake of fire along with beast and false prophet:

    Revelation 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world…11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven , and goeth into perdition.” [KJV]perdition.jpeg4

    But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. ~1 Timothy 6:9

    • Our enemies are destroyed by the Author of Life:
    • Nevertheless, Yehovah your Elohim will give them over to you, sending one disaster after another upon them until they have been destroyed. He will hand their kings over to you, and you will wipe out their name from under heaven; none of them will be able to stand against you…”! ~ continue reading, Deuteronomy 7:23-24 [JCB]

      • We also can be destroyed by the Author of Life:
      • “I AM going to stretch out my hand over you and deliver you as plunder to the nations; I will cut you off from being a people and cause you to cease from being a nation; I will destroy you. Then you will know that I AM Yehovah!” ~ Yechezk’el- Ezekiel 25:7 [JCB]

    Praised be God, Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, who, in keeping with his great mercy, has cause us, through the resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah from the dead, to be born again to a living hope, to an inheritance that can not decay, spoil or fade, kept safe for you in heaven. ~ 1 Peter–Kefa 1:3,4 [JCB]

  • We will be raised incorruptible, 1Cor.15:42-44 :

So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: 43 It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

  •       ” I believe Judas perished in his flesh, hung himself, an anti-God choice; he as many who will not choose Messiah, will damn themselves, rather than allowing God to judge them” -quote from the web
  • Scriptures fulfilled as mentioned in John 17:12 are: Psalms 22, 45, 69 and Zechariah 11:12, 13.

    • look at the other translations like JCB, Jewish Complete Bible!
    • a son of perdition ~ ben who separates himself from Torah!
    • From I Saw the Light Ministries: ” The “son of perdition” ~ the Anti-Messiah, oppose all, be a god, sits in the Temple, proclaiming himself god! Some say Basher of Syria? from Alawi sect of Islam, they already worship him! they do “kiss” Jesus, perform communion, abominations….

    Bashar Assad can be a son of perdition, an antichrist. England and America may eventually be invaded. Take all of this into major Fasting and Prayer. Ask GOD what HE wants you to do. WHERE does GOD want you to be ? What preparations does HE want you to make?”


But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. ~ Hebrews 10:39 [KJV]

  • In Daniel 7 & 11, one who will magnify self above all, refers to the anti-messiah! “Finally when he pitches the tents of his palace between the seas and the mountain of the holy Glory, he will come to his end, with no one to help him [Daniel 11:45, JCB]
  • Our hope is this:

Many of those sleeping in the dust of the earth will awaken, some to everlasting life and some to everlasting shame and abhorrence. But those who can discern will shine like the brightness of heaven’s dome, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever [Daniel 12:2,3 JCB]

O the ongoing mercies of Yehovah, for surely none of us is righteous. But if we only believe in His Son, the Messiah Yeshua, we become sons of the Living God, and receive life eternal with Him.

Repent and receive the joy of salvation!

Look upon Him lifted up on the stake for you, and receive your healing.

Yeshua nailed the Serpent to that stake, ending the curse of death & sickness, granting us eternal life if we would only believe in Him who the Father sent.

Yehovah is our provision, our healing, our banner, our peace, our righteousness, our shepherd; He is there with you always!

Out of the Land of Silence

“If Yahweh hadn’t helped me, I would soon have dwelt in the land of silence.

When I said,  ‘My foot is slipping!’ Your grace, Yahweh, supported me.

When my cares within me are many, Your comforts

cheer me up. [Psalm 94:17-19]”!

How does one become a dweller in the land of silence?  How does it start?

“There is no matter that enters a man from outside, which is able to defile him, but it is what comes out of him that defiles the man [Marqos/ Mark 7:15]”.

“It is what comes out of a person”, [Yeshua] went on, “that makes him unclean. For from within, out of a person’s heart come forth wicked thoughts, sexual

Outside Satan

immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, slander, arrogance, foolishness…All these wicked things come from within, and they make the person unclean.”

A foot slips, anger, high conflict, toxic behaviors, toxic thoughts; stress, neglect, abuse, and maltreatment; more stress, sickness, anxieties, mood disorder.

No hope, crying, tormenting thoughts! Alcohol, weed, drugs to forget the pains.

Minor depression to major mood swings, poor judgement, poor impulse control, anti-social behavior, no sleep, chronic pains; mania, paranoia, social anxiety; horrors frozen in memory, intrusive thoughts, dreams and feelings; obsessions and compulsions; covert anger, thoughts which sustain toxic anger; destructive and self-defeating outbursts; self-destruction, including cutting!

A single demon can sow poison even into the multitudes! The accuser  seeks to destroy  through faulty thoughts or lies . He then steals  joy, peace, and contentment . A demon of accusation or bitterness is added to self-righteousness and one becomes a “demon” himself, marching not in victory in Yeshua but in: pride, self-righteousness, respectability, selfishness, ambition, unrighteous judgement, jealousy, envy…

The heart is crooked above all, and desperately sick – who shall know it? I Yahweh search the heart, I try the kidneys, and give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds [Yirmeyahu – Jeremiah 17:9,10].

The demonic weapons become not love, patience, long-suffering…no, these weapons become :intimidation, fault finding, accusation, gossip, slander, rejection, bitterness, lust, impatience, and unforgiveness.

The strategy of the enemy is to divide the house; locate any opening, exploit and make it larger. High-conflict, disorder , moods and thoughts toxic , anxieties and anger mount up, become a mountain not moving.  Soon, without change or help, a man can not remain home, and so leaves to live among  ‘the caves of the burial tombs’. No one can keep him even tied up, not even with a chain.

The evil spirits now in him gather strength. Once he had been chained for his good and that of the community. Now he snaps the chains on his hands and breaks the irons off his feet, and no one is strong enough to control him. Night and day he wanders among the land of silence, among the graves of the dead, and through the hills, howling like a animal and gashing himself with stones.

Meet the demoniac of Mark 5:1-5, Matthew 8:28-34, and Luke 8:26-39!

The solution is one!

The answer is found in Luke: Once swept clean  by the Stronger Man [see Luke 11:16-26], and filled with the Spirit of Yahweh, man’s enemies have no room in which to dwell, and leave for drier places, where the Word dwells not! They can return and if empty, bring 7 worse spirits with them!

  1. Stop ‘hosting’ the demon
  2. Stop agreeing with the demon which perverts the Word of Yahweh
  3. See the sin!
  4. Start professing the Word, using it as sword and shield : “He is my Defender”, “He is my shield”,  “Yahweh is Sovereign, He is in control”!
  5. Ask Yeshua to cleanse, purify, sanctify self.
  6. Have Yeshua heal all wounds
  7. Do not fear, have no anger; rather, armor self as in Ephesians 6:10-18
  8. Stand and fight, with faith, hope, and love. Let the shield grow, wisdom in Yahweh increase, climb from salvation to sanctification, in prayer and faithfulness!
  9. Climb the mountain of Elohim; the darts and arrows of the enemy decrease and penetrate less!
  10. Allow Yeshua to comfort every step of the Way!

Psalms 94:19 : When anxiety was great within me, Your comforts delighted my being.

20 But Yahweh is my defense, And my Elohim the

Rock of my refuge.

Yahweh through Yeshua the Messiah is our stronghold. He alone will cut off and cast down our enemies. Yeshua told Satan to step behind Him, for Satan’s thoughts are stumbling-blocks and not of Elohim [Mattithyahu – Matthew 16:23]! Yeshua is our STRONGerMAN who stands forward and behind us, leading us to victory in Him. He binds the enemy and cleans our house!

As in Psalms 91, IF we make our dwelling place  in the SECRET place of the Most High, we shall never dwell in a cemetery again!  Our desire daily should be to tarry under His shadow by the Light of Yeshua. Under His wings we take our refuge. His Word, the Truth, becomes our shield and armor.

Psalms 91:5 You are not afraid of the dread by night, of the arrow that flies by day, 6  of the pestilence that walks in darkness, of destruction that ravages at midday.

7 A thousand fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it does not come near you.

9 Because you have made Yahweh – my refuge, the Most High – your dwelling place,

10 NO evil befalls you, and a plague does not come near your tent…

The darts and arrows of the enemy fall at your side for He commands His messengers, the angels, concerning you [v.11] to guard you in all your ways!

So tread on that lion and cobra [v. 13], trample under foot the young lion and serpent!

14 “Because he clings to Me in love, therefore I deliver him; I exalt him, because he has known My Name.

15 “When he calls on Me, I answer him; I AM with him in distress; I deliver him and esteem him.

The Most High is asking, Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaints? Who feels hurt without cause? Who has redness of eyes? [Proverbs 23:29]

My son, give me your heart, and let your eyes watch My ways [v.26]!

Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves…[Yirmeyahu – Jeremiah 6:16]!

Bitten by a snake? Stung by an adder? Yahweh has come. Yahweh has called., and His hand is not too short to redeem. His power remains strong to deliver.

Yeshayahu – Our Yah Saves -Isaiah 50:4 ” The Master Yahweh has given Me the tongue of talmidim [disciples], that I should know to help the weary with a word. He wakes Me morning by morning, He wakes My ear to hear as talmidim.

5 The Master Yahweh has opened My ear, and I was not rebellious, nor dd I turn away.

6 I gave My back to those who struck Me, and My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard, I did not hide My face from humiliation and spitting.

9 See, the Master Yahweh helps Me…

10 Who among you is revering Yahweh, obeying the voice of His Servant, that has walked in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the Name of
