This Easter Sunday, it’s time to tell the truth about the global war on Christianity (and the rise of Satanism)

Sunday, April 21, 2019 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) In case you haven’t heard, Christian churches are being bombed all over the world today by radical Islamic terrorists. In Sri Lanka alone, there are 207 Christians reported dead so far and 450+ injured in just one day. This is just days after the burning down of Notre Dame in France, a fire that the media has gone to desperate lengths to report was not set on purpose by Islamic terrorists. (They are now blaming a computer glitch, if you can believe that.)

Across the Middle East, in places like Syria, Christians are being persecuted by the hundreds of thousands. They are killed, tortured and run out of their own homes and countries. Even in places like the Philippines, Islamic terrorists have seized entire islands and targeted Christians for slaughter. As stated by The Gatestone Institute International Policy Council:

The new terrorism in the Philippines is not merely inspired by political or territorial grievances, real or imagined, but rather is imbued with intrinsic hate for the “other” — for the “infidel.” In May 2017, in the city of Marawi, a civilian bus was stopped by jihadis; when 9 passengers were discovered to be Christian — apparently because they were not able to quote the Koran — they were tied together and shot dead, execution style. The jihadis who took over Marawi during the uprising forced women into sex-slavery and ordered Christian men embrace Islam or be used as human shields against the Philippine Army.

In the United States, Christians are being systematically de-platformed off all social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, all of which are now dominated by Satanists who despise Christianity. At the same time, every single Democrat running for president in 2020 has a record of attacking Christianity and either directly or indirectly supporting the silencing of Christians and Christian principles.

Christianity is under attack like never before, all across our world. Yet the left-wing media pretends it isn’t happening. Instead, they claim it is gays, minorities or Muslims who are under attack, and that same media now essentially equates belief in God with “white supremacist” beliefs.

There is a global war on Christianity, and those who are waging it are quite literally the minions of Satan

It’s time to call out the satanists wherever they are found across society: Running universities, media organizations and deep state bureaucracies. Satanism is endemic in Hollywood and the music industry, and Netflix has even been overtaken by Satanism as is now abundantly clear with its hiring of Satanists as “consultants” for its popular “Sabrina” show that features a “teenage witch” who worships the devil to gain power in modern society.

As LifeSiteNews.com reports:

In [the Netflix show], the Sabrina character is called to sign her name in the Book of the Beast. There are demons. Evil spells. Orgies. The show is so satanic in its feel that the Satanic Temple itself is talking about taking legal action against the program for allegedly appropriating the copyrighted monument design of its goat deity Baphomet.

Family Research Council senior fellow Peter Sprigg agrees. “The dark, occult-ish elements in ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ provide reason enough for parents to keep their children, including teens, far away from this show,” Sprigg told Fox News. “The show has gone over the top in depicting an actual orgy on screen, and if they think having the teen participants keep their underwear on makes it all right, the writers and producers need to think again. This content is not appropriate for anyone, but especially not for the teen audience it targets.”

Beyond just Netflix, all the big tech giants are run by Satanists, too. Wikipedia, for example, relentlessly attacks Christianity (and natural medicine, by the way) while allowing pro-Satanism content to dominate its pages. It was founded by Jimmy Wales, a former “porn king” who uses the power of Wikipedia to bury his own past while allowing the platform to function as a smear engine for pastors, healers and journalists who promote GOOD instead of evil.

Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, is steeped in evil, demonstrating fascist tendencies in every decision he makes regarding the de-platforming of targeted channels. Those banned from Twitter include people who quote Mother Theresa or Bible scripture. Jack Dorsey personally oversees many of these bans, carrying out literal orders from Satan to silence those who share the word of God.

Jeff Bezos’ Amazon.com bans books and movies that tell people the truth about vaccines, America, God and more. But the same online retailer openly sells satanic books with chapters on “teenage Satanists” and “animal sacrifice.” As reported by Natural News:

Amazon is happily selling books that promote Satanism, including a book titled, “Satanism: A Beginner’s Guide to the Religious Worship of Satan and Demons Volume I: Philosophy,” published by “Devil’s Mark Publishing.” You can see the book at this Amazon.com link.

Google is also pro-Islam and anti-Christian, as is abundantly clear by Google’s celebration of Islamic holidays and its suppression of Christian websites, videos and content. The people who work at Google hate the very idea of God, with many of them (like Rey Kurzweil) believing that machines are God and hoping to one day merge with those machines by claiming to be able to upload their souls to computer chips (transhumanism).

According to all the dominant tech giants today, even the word “Christmas” is “hate speech.” All the tech giants use the Southern Poverty Law Center — an anti-Christian, left-wing hate group — as the arbiter of “hate.” And the SPLC hates God, Christianity and America.

Planned Parenthood, Satanism and the abortion industry

The entire abortion industry functions largely as a child sacrifice temple, allowing worshipers of Satanism to carry out demonic rituals under the cover of “women’s health.” Many Planned Parenthood workers are practicing Satanists, and they pray to Satan as part of their child murder rituals.

One Planned Parenthood director recently admitted to running “a Satanic pedophile ring.” As Newspunch.com reports:

A former Planned Parenthood director has admitted that the organization is really a front for a Satanic pedophile ring in which abortions are seen as ‘demonic rituals.’  In an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, Ramona Trevino revealed that staff members have quotas for abortions so that they can use the aborted fetuses for sick Satanic rituals.

The desire to murder babies in the name of Satan is so prevalent among Leftists / Democrats that the Governor of North Carolina just vetoed a bill that would require health care for babies born alive after failed abortions. You can almost hear Gov. Roy Cooper screaming, “Let them DIE!” as he licks his lips to lap up the blood of children murdered in the name of Satan.

A short list of the institutions which are now run by Satanists who despise God and Christ

Satanism has invaded and infected nearly every institution in modern society:

  • The Democrat party and ALL Democrats running for president.
  • Hollywood, Netflix, Amazon Prime and all of the dominant streaming content producers.
  • The pop culture music industry.
  • Amazon, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and all the tech giants.
  • Modern medicine, which feeds on baby parts while pushing vaccines that contain aborted human fetal tissue (turning every vaccine into a cannibalism blood ritual).
  • The Vatican and the Pope, who is a direct servant of Satan.
  • The LGBTQ activist community, which pushes pedophilia and the destruction of the Church because the Church teaches that homosexuality is unclean. (But don’t you dare mention the epidemic of anal cancer that’s spreading across the LGBT community like wildfire.)
  • Every level of government, from local city councils to the federal deep state in Washington D.C.
  • The children’s books industry, including the Harry Potter series.
  • The global banking cartels, which are all owned and run by pedophiles and child blood harvesters.
  • The institution of “science,” which has become fanatical in its push to vaccine children with the blood of other children. (Vaccines contain WI-38 and MRC-5 cell lines, which are derived from aborted human babies, as is admitted by this CDC official document).
  • Universities and public schools.
  • The open borders advocates who need the borders to stay open so they can continue to traffic human children who are used as sex slaves and child sacrifice rituals by wealthy Democrat donors (and other sickos, like tech elitists and science “skeptics” who push medical child abuse).

What you can do to stay informed and defend the Word of God

Too many churches in America are teaching watered-down scripture that’s afraid to teach the real word of God. If you want to hear a Christian pastor who isn’t afraid to discuss Revelation, the End Times and the attacks on Christianity, connect with Discover Ministries out of Australia, run by pastor Steve Cioccolanti.

Cioccolanti preaches what nearly all U.S. pastors are afraid to say.

His Brighteon video channel is found at this link.

There are also many courageous Christian video channels on Brighteon.com, the free speech alternative to YouTube.

Note to Cioccolanti’s staff: Please upload more videos to Brighteon.com so that we can share them.

Make no mistake: Modern human civilization has been overtaken by demonic forces who are at war with God and humanity. At least half the population has now been overtaken by demonic influence (probably much more) and are actively working to destroy human life (babies, etc.), individual liberty, national sovereignty, all white people, all Christians, etc. Every person who promotes infanticide and post-birth abortion, for example, is an actual demon in human form. They are quite literally no longer human. They are demons pretending to be human.

Watch my all-important Counterthink episode to learn the full truth about “demons in human form.”

Be prepared, both physically and spiritually. According to some, we have already entered “End Times” scenarios, and we are watching the rise of the demonic Left and soon, the Antichrist. This Antichrist will pretend to be a global messiah who promises to heal the world and end war and conflict. In truth, he is the embodiment of Lucifer, and he will deceive billions into following him as he leads humanity toward destruction.

Even most Christians will be fooled and will surrender their souls to his influence.

Watch for more signs of the emerging Mark of the Beast, the global persecution of Christians and the rise of global government. These are all signs that the end game is approaching. (Click to Source)

Mother Has Vision of Demons Choking Her Daughter at the Very Moment She Overdosed

KELLIE VAN GILDER/BGEA

Helpless. Alone.

Those are two feelings both Brooke and her mother shared during the height of Brooke’s heroin addiction.

Brooke, a straight-A student born in a wealthy churchgoing family, hated herself for losing control of her life. Her mother, a prominent psychologist of 30-some years, blamed herself.

Neither one saw this coming. Brooke grew up singing in church with her mother. She remembers accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at 6 years old. Meanwhile, her mother tried to look out for the best interest of her daughters.

But even the best-intentioned, God-centered parenting meets its match against the realities of everyday life. Brooke started taking Xanax for anxiety after some rough moments during her teenage years. In college, she applied herself equally to making good grades and partying and drinking. She was hospitalized 18 times for what appeared to her mother to be legitimate medical reasons such as pneumonia, bronchitis and kidney issues.

But everything changed after Brooke experienced complications delivering her daughter at age 22. She said the doctor prescribed Dilaudid, a hydromorphone so potent the U.S. National Library of Medicine cautions against letting the liquid form touch your bare skin or clothes. The site also suggests some patients will have to be weaned off the highly addictive opioid.

“That was the beginning of my opiate addiction,” Brooke said. “I was very over-prescribed. All types of pain pills for things that weren’t very serious.”

Additional pain pills weren’t hard to find at her job as a health care professional. She occasionally stole her patients’ medicines. Before she knew it, she was taking 300 milligrams of opioids a day (typically 10 pills of 30mg Roxicodone), and the nerves her opioid abuse had opened screamed at her for more every time the high wore off.

“It was all prescriptions, and then one day I couldn’t get them anymore. Someone told me heroin is the exact same as a pain pill so I said, ‘OK.'” I was addicted at this point. I couldn’t go a day without them or I’d get really sick.”

Think about the worst flu you’ve ever had. Times 100. That’s just a small taste of what opioid withdrawal is like, so heroin, an illegal opioid, seemed like the easiest way to prevent getting sick. At first she snorted it. She remained somewhat functional around her family and friends.

“Apparently I hid it very well, but once I started using the needle, my life got really out of control,” Brooke said.

An intravenous dose of heroin hits the user’s bloodstream immediately, bringing instant relief to all those fired-up nerves. But that little needle also delivered a seemingly unending dose of destruction. Brooke lost her job, her family, her daughter. Her family staged an intervention with her, and she agreed to go to rehab in December 2013.

“It was so surreal, like an out-of-body experience,” Brooke remembered, saying she weighed just 98 pounds then. Her liver was so taxed her skin had turned an ashy gray/green color. “But I was in such denial at that point.”

Her sense of entitlement didn’t do her any favors in rehab. She was kicked out after 10 days. Her mom swooped in, picked her up and took her to the next center. This continued nine more times to the tune of more than $100,000 until finally, her mother realized that she couldn’t fix it.

‘Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Done as a Mom’

During Brooke’s struggles, her mom, Robin, attended help meetings for herself in another town since she was too ashamed to find one locally. She started seeing things she needed to fix in her own life—learning boundaries, for instance, or quelling her desire to fix everything. But she never quit praying for her oldest daughter.

The hardest moment happened after Brooke’s final rehab stint failed. Brooke didn’t want to go back, and Robin couldn’t make her. Robin and Brooke’s dad, often split over how to handle her situation, agreed that Brooke couldn’t come to either of their homes.

“I had to get to that point, and it killed me,” Robin said. “I have this one picture of Jesus leaning over that cliff reaching for the one out of the 99. I prayed with that picture crying so many times that God would please help Brooke when I knew the drugs were running her. I was just waiting for that call [that Brooke fatally overdosed]. God, I know I shouldn’t say that, but I feel like I’m going to get that call, and if I get it, I know You’re going to help me, but I just don’t know if she’s going to live another day.

“And me having to lock my door and say, ‘You cannot come here,’ and not give her any money. She had no money, no food, and she was out there killing herself. I had to let go and give her totally to God so she could get well. That was the hardest thing I’ve ever done as a mom.”

Robin stayed in Brooke’s life during this time, though. It wasn’t unusual for her to visit her daughter at her hotel room with fast food and food cards, things she hoped wouldn’t be used to score more heroin.

“I would sit on the bed with her in her hotel and give her food cards to Burger King where she could walk to get food, and then I would go get in my car and I would cry uncontrollably for 30 minutes before leaving her, knowing I might not see her again.”

‘I Wanted to Just Not Wake Up’

Brooke knew in her heart she wanted to get clean, and she knew she couldn’t do it on her own. She didn’t know what to do. And she felt as though she had let everybody down. Turning to the church seemed out of the question because she was too embarrassed. She had become the person she never thought she’d be. She stole from her family. She was brought up on charges after someone overdosed at her house. She even used her then-boyfriend’s heroin in his hospital room while he recovered from a near-fatal overdose. This wasn’t the life she wanted, either, but she felt stuck.

“I knew the Lord, and that’s what made my addiction so miserable,” Brooke said. “It was just so miserable because I knew better.

“[My mom] commended me to the Lord, and I think I was already kind of dead in my family’s eyes because they had tried for years at the best treatment centers around, but nothing worked. I went to do a shot of heroin to kill myself. I knew how much I was used to doing, and I did like the whole needle. I wanted to just not wake up. I was so miserable and hated myself and felt like such a piece of trash.”

She woke up 24 hours later after some people found her and administered three doses of nalaxone, a nasal spray often called NARCAN that can reverse an overdose. This medicine is often carried and administered by law enforcement officials and emergency personnel, but in 2017, Walgreens and CVS were given the green light to sell it over the counter in 40-some states.

In Brooke’s case, a neighbor had the life-saving third dose that brought her back.

“When I woke up, I remember being in such darkness. It was like a black hole I was sucked in and just oppression and depression. It was like a spiritual fight right there.”

The battle wasn’t limited to Brooke’s area. That same morning she was revived, her mother was in church singing worship when she said she had a vision that demons were choking the life out of her daughter. Robin stopped singing.

“I literally said, ‘In Jesus’ name, get your hands off her. You’re not going to kill my daughter. She belongs to Jesus,”’ Robin said. “I said it several times. I said it emphatically but not really loud. I don’t know if anybody else heard me.”

‘You Can’t Do This Without Jesus’

Two days later, Brooke called her mom from jail. Her drug abuse had landed her behind bars for the sixth time, and the cold-turkey, flu-like detox was yet again unkind.

“God stopped me from going to jail a lot, but that was the only way that I was going to listen and cry out for Him,” Brooke said. “I was so miserable. It really gave me time to sober up and think about what am I doing?

“I made a commitment right then [after hearing her mom’s vision]: God, I’m doing this Your way.”

Brooke knew a quick rehab trip wasn’t the answer so she looked into the Gastonia’s Potters House near Charlotte, North Carolina, which she learned about from another inmate. Client Director Danielle Crowley, a graduate of the 18-month women’s rehabilitation facility, visited Brooke in jail.

“The first thing she said to me, she said, ‘You know you can’t do this without Jesus, right?'” Brooke said.

At the Potters House, the focus is all on Jesus. Newly admitted patients cannot have cellphones or visitors, and even their television access is limited. Director Cindy Marshall, who celebrated her 28th year of recovery this past February, started the Potters House in 2003 as a way to minister to women trying to start a clean life. During the last year, Marshall said the faith-based, nonprofit rehab has seen a 70 percent increase in applicants like Brooke who want to be free of opioid addiction.

At the Potters House, it’s not just about staying clean; it’s about living a brand-new life in Jesus. It’s about declaring God’s promises every day and living them out, spending time every day in God’s Word.

“This is a lifestyle,” Danielle said. “The goal isn’t to be sober. The goal is to change your life, to live a different life. It’s a completely different lifestyle. If you’re willing to go to a quarter of any length you were to get your drugs, then you’ll make it. If you’ll just put that much into it and surrender, you’ll make it.”

A Truly New Life

Brooke has been at the Potters House for about a year now. She’s learned who she is in Christ, and even though her 6-year-old self never could have seen this coming, she has a passion now for ministering to people, particularly women, dealing with addiction. During the week, Brooke and other residents at Potters House visit a local detox center in Gaston County, North Carolina, to share their testimonies and be an encouragement.

Meanwhile, her mother is learning to share more about her side of the struggle, and it’s clear she’s not alone. Tragically, three people she knows have lost loved ones to overdoses just within the last two years. Robin also has shared her story from the pulpit, talking with one North Carolina church recently.

“The stigma is to admit that your child is an addict or alcoholic,” Robin said. “You feel that it reflects on your parenting and that you had to do something wrong if all these other kids that are there are doing well, so it’s really hard to talk about it. And then I don’t want to break Brooke’s confidence and tell things that she doesn’t want to have told. Satan uses that feeling of shame.”

Brooke was consumed with shame during her opioid abuse, keeping her from the people who most wanted to help her. But now, there’s a radiance that seems to flow from Brooke when she talks about life today. Sitting in the Potters House this past February in a North Carolina hoodie, she couldn’t help but reiterate how grateful she was to be there, a new creation free from her heroin addiction.

“The only thing that’s bigger than addiction is Jesus,” Brooke said. “I can’t imagine living any other way now.”  (Click to Source)

The Devil, Demons and Democrats: JESUS PLEASE Come Get Us Soon!

ON IN DEMOCRATS AND DEMONS

abolish-ice-profits

They’ve done it now.

They are not even pretending to be sane. They figure “why bother?”  They are demanding things that only insane or possessed people would ask.

They want all prisons to be opened – let out everyone!  The Murderers,  the Pedophiles, the Terrorists and all other criminals. YES!  Let them ALL out into the streets to continue their barbaric deeds.

They want ALL borders to be abolished.  A country with NO BORDERS.  That means MS 13, ISIS, criminals of every race will have full access to our country.

Oh, wait ……WHAT country?

And it doesn’t end there.  They insist that all private-sector businesses be closed and be replaced by a government- run fascist economy to control everything.

From naturalnews.com

This is now the position of the Left. The party that once stood for civil liberties now stands for the complete invasion and overrunning of the United States of America. The Democrat platform is, essentially, the platform of war against America. Even more philosophically stated, it is actually a war with civilization. (If you think Democrats know how to run things, check out the current situation in Venezuela, run by the very same lunatics who are now calling for abolishing ICE in America…)

Democrats want to unleash a wave of violent criminals, murderers, rapists, child traffickers and illegals to sweep across your neighborhood and loot everything in sight

As part of the Democrats’ war against civilization, the New York Times has declared a full assault on the First Amendment, now claiming that when conservatives exercise free speech, it’s dangerous to society. Democrats are now even attacking Bernie Sanders for not being radical enough. He’s a radical socialist, but he’s too “moderate” for Leftists now, reports Breitbart.com, because he hasn’t yet called for open borders and the flooding of America with illegals.

Deranged liberal mobs spent the weekend staging marches nationwide, holding up “Abolish ICE” signs and tweeting out demands to end borders, shut down all prisons and have the government seize all private businesses in the name of “equality.”

By “abolish profit,” they mean the complete elimination of free market capitalism, privately-held businesses, and the entire private sector of the U.S. economy. To the Left, only government should have authority and control over society… and of course, they want to be the lunatics running that government.

Democrats are now synonymous with complete lawlessness and mass mental illness

Understand what you’re seeing here: Democrats are now synonymous with utter lawlessness. They want no borders, no prisons and ultimately no police. They push sanctuary cities to protect violent criminal illegals, and they actively seek to abolish even the most fundamental right of any sovereign nation: the right to protect your own border.

Democrats are actively trying to unleash mass criminal chaos across America. Because they can no longer win at the ballot box, they’re deliberately working to unleash a bloody civil war in the streets of America. They want total chaos. They want an end to anything resembling a civil society. They demand to either run the government with their fascist tyranny, or destroy the nation and start over.

Recognize what you’re really watching here: The complete de-masking (de-cloaking) of the true intent of the Democrat party, which is to abolish America and usher in a new Fascist police state regime run by left-wing tyrants. (That was their plan all along with the 2016 election, but the people overrode their evil plot and elected Trump to try to save America.)

This is why more and more people are walking away from the deranged Democrat party. A new movement called #walkaway is going viral across social media. Intelligent, informed people are leaving the Democrat party in droves because they realize Democrats are now radical left-wing lunatics and terrorists who openly desire rampant lawlessness and chaos.

If you value your life, liberty, property or even your job, join us in defeating the Democrats at every election from this day forward. Your very life depends on it. The future of human civilization on this planet depends on it. If the lunatic Leftists win, America collapses and the world plunges into a dark chapter of destitution, tyranny, mass starvation and collapse.

Brethren, if the insanity of the Left does prevail, we will be the criminals – we will be incarcerated.  Our crime will be that we are truth tellers.

And if we have to continue telling truth from jail cells – that’s what we will do.

That’s what Watchmen on the Wall  have to do. (Click to Source)

‘Witchcraft Is Very Real’: ‘Limbless Evangelist’ Nick Vujicic Responds to Fierce Reaction About Seeing Demons

03-18-2018
Billy Hallowell, Faithwire.com

Evangelist Nick Vujicic has tetra-amelia syndrome, a disorder that caused him to be born without limbs. But despite some major challenges, Vujicic and his Life Without Limbs ministry have reached millions of people across 68 countries — a feat he credits to God.

The inspirational Christian speaker, who recently published a new book titled, “Be the Hands and Feet,” shared his personal story during a recent appearance on “The Billy Hallowell Podcast” of overcoming depression to become a well-known force for the gospel.

He also discussed faith, life  — and his recent claims about an experience with spiritual forces that led to quite a bit of online discussion and debate.

“Being born and raised in a loving home in Australia to immigrant parents from Yugoslavia, I was the first disabled child to go into the mainstream school system of Victoria in Australia,” Vujicic said. “And in that, I had a great life, yet very deep struggles, and went into depression at age eight.”

He was plagued as a young man by tragic thoughts about his life and future — questions that led him to wonder what God was doing with his life.

“Looking ahead in my life, thinking am I ever going to be independent? Am I just a burden to my parents? I’m never going to get married. And not going to have any purpose in my life,” he said. “And when I went through that depression, it was hard because I heard about the loving God who loved me, yet made me this way or allowed me to be this way, and yet not given me a miracle to give me arms and legs miraculously.”

By age 10, Vujicic attempted to commit suicide in his bathtub and failed. It wasn’t until two years later that he was able to get out of his depression. Then, a few years later, he read John 9 in the Bible about a man who was born blind, and the story affected him profoundly.

“No one knew why he was born that way. Jesus said it was done so that the works of God will be revealed through him,” he continued. “And at age 15, God’s like, ‘Hey, you’ve been wanting me to give you my plan for your life? It’s not about that. It’s about Nick, do you trust me with the plan that I have, and not just give you a blueprint?’”

Everything clicked for Vujicic at that point and he proceeded to become a speaker by age 17. Before long, he was traveling the world with his story of overcoming the odds, all while inspiring young people to persist through their own challenges. His message has been shared by media outlets across the globe.

And as Faithwire previously reported, Vujicic sparked quite a bit of discussion after a Facebook Live back in January when he made some fascinating claims surrounding why he believes God is real.

“I can’t show you God, I can’t show you an angel, but one of the reasons why I’m not an atheist, and one of the reasons why I don’t believe science explains everything, is because I have seen miracles, and I’ve seen demons,” Vujicic said. “I’ve seen 10-foot-tall demons, 5-foot wide walk in through my San Francisco hotel room/ And I felt the demon’s presence, demonic presence, before the demon actually walked through the wall. And so when you understand that science can’t explain everything … there is a spiritual realm.”

The evangelist didn’t go much deeper into the story, but of course we asked him for more details, considering how much interest the story generated.

Vujicic said that people must realize that there is a spiritual realm and he shared some of his past experiences in more detail.

“I think the new generation of believers must start understanding that witchcraft is very real. All the stuff behind Harry Potter, ‘Oh, there’s another Christian bagging Harry Potter,’” he said. “No, I want you to understand that the enemy has its ways of blinding us.”

As for the San Francisco story, Vujicic described the demons’ massive size, and went on to share yet another similar story involving a recent Uber ride.

He said he felt that something wasn’t quite right when he was in the vehicle — a presence that he described as “spiritual demonic oppression.” Then, when he got out of the car he saw that the woman had Satanic-themed stickers in the front of the car. (Click to Source)

Idolatry, Demons, and Ecumenism

Whom can the faithful church of God legitimately partner with in ministry? That question has been a point of contention among professing Christians for the past 100 years. And that’s been illustrated by what is known as the ecumenical movement, the history of which we surveyed last week.

And the principal dogma of the ecumenical movement of the 20th century was that anyone who called themselves a Christian was to be regarded as a Christian. It didn’t matter if they were a theological liberal who denied the bodily resurrection of Christ or penal substitutionary atonement, or if they were a Roman Catholic who denied the Gospel of justification by faith alone. The important thing was that those who called themselves Christians, and held somewhat to a “Christian” view of morality, were able to unite together in order to show strength in numbers, and therefore to compete in the culture wars for larger societal influence. Whether it was religious liberty, the unborn child’s right to life, race relations, a free-market economy, or improving education—all good things!—winning the battle over these social issues became more important to these people than the doctrine that divided them. So they downplayed the importance of the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith in order to partner together on these issues.

Again, this is always done in the name of seizing influence, which, it is always assumed, is absolutely necessary for successful evangelism and for revival. It’s a fundamentally man-centered concept of salvation, because it supposes that unbelievers will be more likely to convert to Christianity if they see how popular, influential, and culturally relevant it is. The fruitlessness of this kind of thinking was illustrated in a classic interaction between a pro-ecumenical minister and Martyn Lloyd-Jones. The man believed the ecumenical movement to be a sign of hope for the future. He said, “But surely, when so many churches are coming together in a World Council of Churches, revival must be on the way.” Do you recognize the unspoken assumption? “If we can have worldwide movements and such large gatherings in the name of Christ, surely unbelievers will want to join us!” And Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ reply was just brilliant.  He said, “You seem to be arguing that if you succeed in bringing together a sufficient number of dead bodies they will come alive!” (G. N. M. Collins, “The Friend,” Chosen by God, 262–63).

Lloyd-Jones’ response reveals a different fundamental conviction about human nature and about what it means to be a Christian. Becoming a Christian isn’t joining a cultural movement. It’s not deciding to join a social club or some sort of fraternity. Becoming a Christian happens when a sinner who is spiritually dead is miraculously raised to spiritual life by God’s sovereign work of regeneration. A Christian is one whom God has made alive from the dead through the preaching of the one true Gospel of Christ. And those who are possessed of different fundamental convictions concerning the Gospel are not just “separated brethren;” they are the one spiritually alive and the other spiritually dead. And as Lloyd-Jones said, it doesn’t make a difference how many dead bodies you could gather into one place. What matters is whether God, by the Holy Spirit, breathes spiritual life into men and women by the preaching of the Gospel.

unity-300x223

That is the test of whether Christianity is advancing in the world. Not how big our churches can get, but whether sinners were united to Christ by faith in the Gospel, and thus had found forgiveness of sins in Him. And if that’s what mattered, then it is the height of folly to downplay the importance of the doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the only way of salvation, in service of a substance-less “unity.” There can be no genuine unity between those who have been saved from their sins through the Gospel, and those who yet remain enemies of that Gospel—no matter what people are willing to call themselves. And so there can be no partnership in ministry between believers and unbelievers, because there is such a radical difference between them. And history has shown us that when we water down fundamental doctrinal distinctives for the sake of a bigger “tent,” we lose the Gospel—the Evangel itself. And if you lose the Gospel, there is no ground for genuine unity.

And it’s precisely this issue that Paul takes up in 2 Corinthians 6:14–7:1:

“Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? 16Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.’ 17Therefore, ‘Come out from their midst and be separate,’ says the Lord. ‘And do not touch what is unclean; And I will welcome you. 18And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me,’ Says the Lord Almighty. 7:1Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

The apostolic instruction could not be clearer: because there is this radical, objective difference between believers and unbelievers at the most fundamental level, there can be no partnership between them in ministry.

The Idolatry of False Religion

Now, you can see this passage’s consistent emphasis on the theme of idolatry. Verse 16 asks, “What agreement has the temple of God with idols?” And the context of the Old Testament quotations to “Come out from their midst and be separate” and to “not touch what is unclean” (Isa 52:11) has to do with Israel’s separation from the idolatry of the pagan nations.

And Corinth is one of those pagan nations! When the Corinthian Christians came to Christ, they had to repudiate the Greco-Roman polytheistic system of idol worship. Like the Christians in the pagan city of Thessalonica, they had to “turn to God from idols to serve [the] living and true God” (1 Thess 1:9). And they did that. But their conversion to Christ didn’t remove them from a society where the worship of idols absolutely dominated everyday life. Holidays, festivals, celebrations—even the ideology and philosophy that dominated everyday conversation—was influenced by pagan temple worship. Idolatry was simply part of their culture, and as believers in Jesus, they had to do everything they could to guard against any syncretism, any blending of idolatrous worship with Christianity.

And the Apostle Paul knew that was a temptation for them, and so he addressed the issue of idolatry with the Corinthians in his previous letter to them. He devotes almost two entire chapters in 1 Corinthians (8 and 10) to instructing them how to live in a society dominated by idolatry without compromising commitment to Christ. And in those chapters he makes clear the absolute incompatibility between the worship of Christ and the worship of idols: “Do not be idolaters” (1 Cor 10:7); “Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry” (1 Cor 10:14); “Or do you not know that . . . idolaters . . . will [not] inherit the kingdom of God?” (1 Cor 6:9–10).

The Demonic Nature of Idolatry

He explains why in 1 Corinthians 10:16–22. Even though idols don’t exist and are no true gods at all, it’s not that there’s no spiritual component to idolatry. “No, but I say that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God” (1 Cor 10:20). You could imagine the Corinthians thinking, “Now Paul, you just said that an idol is nothing and sacrifices to idols are nothing. So we should be able to take part in those rituals, right? They aren’t true gods!” And Paul replies, “No. It’s true that they’re not true gods; there’s no such thing as any god but the true God. But those idols are demons.”

This is a startling point. Every false religion in the world is not just wrong. It is demonic. It is energized and powered by the kingdom of darkness that is ruled by Satan himself.

Paul says the gods of the pagans are demons. And, just as when we sit down at the Lord’s table to worship Christ we share in the body and blood of Christ, so also when idolaters sacrifice to their demonic gods they are partaking of fellowship with demons. And so Paul says, “I do not want you to become sharers in demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons!”

1-cor-1021-300x158

(1 Corinthians 10:20-21) In other words: You can’t participate in the worship of Christ while you continue to participate in the worship of demons. That’s just ridiculous! There is absolutely no fellowship or spiritual partnership between the people of God and the people of this world.

The Context of 2 Corinthians 6:14–7:1

Now, that was Paul’s concern throughout the letter of First Corinthians. But in SecondCorinthians there’s a bit of a different context. The Corinthians are still guarding themselves against the paganism of their surrounding culture, to be sure. But the pressing issue as Paul writes Second Corinthians isn’t so much the pressure of unbelieving paganism, but rather the corrupting doctrine of the Judaizing false apostles (2 Cor 11:13; cf. 11:4, 22). These were professing Christians who are claiming that faith in Christ was necessary, but not enough for salvation. If you’re really going to be saved, you also have to be circumcised, and observe the Mosaic ceremonies, too (cf. Acts 15:1).

And in order to make room for their false doctrine, these interlopers had done everything they could to undermine Paul’s integrity and credibility with the Corinthians—hurling accusation after accusation against him, and inciting a mutiny against Paul that prompted an unplanned, painful visit (cf. 2 Cor 2:1) as well as a tearful letter of severe reproof (cf. 2 Cor 2:4). And from 2 Corinthians, we learn that, through Paul’s severe letter, the majority the church saw these charlatans for what they were and reaffirmed their loyalty to Paul (2 Cor 2:5–11; 7:5–16). But there was still a significant minority who were deceived. So before visiting them again, Paul writes 2 Corinthians to affirm his love for the repentant majority, and to exhort the unrepentant minority to break fellowship with these false teachers and return to him and the unadulterated Gospel he preaches with their whole hearts.

And it’s worth mentioning that 2 Cor 6:14–7:1 comes sandwiched in between a twofold appeal for the Corinthians to open their hearts, be reconciled to Paul, and affirm their loyalty to the Gospel he preaches (2 Cor 6:11–13; 7:2–4). But because the heart of this relational crisis is a moral crisis, in between that twofold appeal for reconciliation, he calls them to separate from these false apostles.

Apostate “Christianity” is No Better than Paganism

Now, wait a minute. These false apostles are Judaizers. They’re professing Christians who were just saying that you needed to add a few religious ceremonial works to your faith in Christ for salvation. But this text is all about separating oneself from pagan idolatry. How does that work?

paul-writing-300x221

And that is the genius of this passage. Paul’s saying, “Do you remember my instruction from my previous letter concerning the necessity of your total break from the idolatry and the paganism of your culture? Do you remember how I explained how incongruous it is to be involved in a spiritual partnership with Christ and with demons? Well, my dear Corinthians, that’s not only true of the out-and-out heathen—of the pagan idolaters who deny Christ outright. It also applies even to professing Christian teachers who corrupt the Gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

“Because these false apostles teach you that salvation comes by faith in Christ plus religious ritualism, they preach another gospel which is really no gospel at all (Gal 1:6–9). And though they call Christ their God, He is another Jesus whom we have not preached (2 Cor 11:4), and therefore is nothing but a demon, right alongside the false gods of the Greco-Roman pantheon (1 Cor 10:20–21). They are idolaters! And just as much as you cannot have any spiritual partnership with the idols of the Gentiles, neither can you have any spiritual partnership with these heretics, who fashion a god into their own image and idolize a demon they call ‘Jesus.’ You must come out from them and be separate!”

What implications does this have for the philosophy and theology that undergirds the ecumenical movement?

It teaches us that simply calling yourself a Christian, or mentally assenting to the doctrine of the Trinity, or confessing faith in someone named “Jesus,” does not automatically make you a Christian.

It teaches us that there are people who will claim to “believe in Jesus,” who are nevertheless, as Paul calls them in this passage, unbelievers (2 Cor 6:14, 15).

It teaches us that there are people, like the Judaizers, who profess to be Christians but who are not Christians, because they’re not united to Christ through genuine faith in the Gospel—because they teach that faith alone in Christ’s work alone (though necessary) is not sufficient for salvation, but that we must add works of ceremonial and religious ritualism to “preserve and increase” our justification. The Judaizers required circumcision; today’s heretics require baptism, or penance, or door-knocking, or deeds of charity; but the Gospel of Christ is fatally undermined just the same.

And it teaches us, therefore, that if we compromise by making light of the fundamental doctrinal differences that do genuinely divide us, and if we unite together in ministry while we are not united in the Gospel—even in the name of combatting genuine social evils—we are guilty of the grossest kind of idolatry, and are no better than pagans.

Now, all of that (today and last Friday) was introduction. We’ll get to the text itself starting next week. (Click to Source)

Satan’s Favorite Christians Are The Ones Who Deny That He Exists

WALSH: Satan’s Favorite Christians Are The Ones Who Deny That He Exists

rock-2823831__480

There is no better evidence of Satan’s existence than the fact that so many Christians in this country deny it. We are a culture where even those who believe in the saving power of Christ do not necessarily believe that we actually need to be saved from anything. This is the Devil’s handiwork. By pretending he isn’t real, we show his fruits.

Surveys show that 30% of American Christians reject the idea of Hell. For Catholics, the number is almost 40%. It’s a smaller figure — 25% — for Protestants, but that’s deceptive because 40% of Protestants say they don’t believe in demonic possession. They may affirm “Hell” as some kind of abstract concept, but they clearly don’t accept that evil spirits are actively at work in our world.

This is not just a problem among average Christians. Plenty of pastors and church leaders have fostered this heresy either by refusing to ever acknowledge Hell or Satan in their preaching, or by outright denying them. Here’s one article from an apostate pastor named Timothy Tutt who labels the Devil “make believe.” Incredibly, in his defense of this position, he never so much as attempts to address the numerous New Testament passages which depict the Devil explicitly. He never even mentions them.

This form of heresy — easily the most damning heresy in the church today — is one that I noticed over and over again in the reaction to my infamous yoga column from yesterday. I don’t wish to reignite that debate, but I was troubled that so many of the responses I received were based not on a defense of yoga per se, but on an outright denial of the demonic. This email is pretty well representative of so many others I read:

Matt, I couldn’t care less about yoga one way or another but your talk about “evil spirits” and “demonic forces” is what drives people away from Christianity. I’m a Christian but I don’t live my life in fear of “Satan.” The only thing you have to believe in to be a Christian is Jesus Christ. The obsession that some of you fundies have with Hell and demons just makes us all look silly. Do you really think God would make Hell or allow people to be possessed by demons? Give me a break. Focus on telling people the Good News, not superstitions.

Whether you agree or disagree with me about yoga is not the point here. Argue against my opinion about the nature of the practice all you want, but a Christian simply must not argue against my position on the existence of evil and the fact that we can do things that may open us up to their influence. What troubled me is not that some Christians denied that yoga could have that effect; it’s that some denied that anything could have that effect. “Focus on the Good News instead,” they say.

But what Good News? You mean the Good News that Christ conquered evil and redeemed mankind? Well how can I proclaim Christ’s conquering if I don’t talk about the thing He conquered? That’s like trying to tell someone about WW2 without mentioning the Nazis. Not only do you demean the achievement of the Allied Forces, but you make the whole history of the war incomprehensible. You turn Normandy into a holiday in France and Dunkirk into a nice day at the beach.

We expect secular types to laugh at any discussion of demonic spirits. That’s what shallow people do when confronted with a concept they don’t understand. But the really terrifying thing is that millions of Christians will join them in their mockery. I’ve encountered this same attitude when discussing Tarot cards and psychics and Ouija Boards, etc. The problem is not simply that professed Believers will make some argument as to why Ouija Boards or whatever could be fine, but that they’ll scoff at the entire discussion as utter silliness.

“Pffft. You think there are actual demons who might possess you because you played a board game?”

Yes, I do. But you aren’t laughing about the board game. You’re laughing about the demons. If you took the threat of demons seriously, you would never be so flippant about it. One can only imagine these sorts of Christians rolling their eyes and snickering at Jesus as He tells them about His experiences with Satan in the wilderness.

“Pffft. You think you spoke to Satan who tempted you to turn stones into bread? Hilarious!”

In Scripture, the story is recounted just a chapter before the Sermon on the Mount, where Christ makes numerous references to “Gehenna” and “the evil one,” and warns that we may be “cut down and thrown into the fire.” The question of the Devil and Hell is not an ambiguous one in Scripture. We are given no room to question it. Read 1 Peter 5:8; 2 Peter 2:4; Luke 8:2; Luke 11:14; Leviticus 17:7; Genesis 3:1-7; Matthew 10:1, Matthew 12:22; Matthew 25:41; Mark 3:11; Mark 9:38; 1 Corinthians 10:20; James 2:19, Revelation 20:10.

Demons are discussed 63 times in the New Testament. Satan is cited over 30 times. Evil spirits are depicted operating within the world and, yes, entering into human beings and taking possession of them. One of the most terrible passages in the whole text is Christ’s interaction with the possessed man in Mark 5:

He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!” For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!”

Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”

“My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.”

Second runner up for most nightmarish Biblical verse is this warning from the First Letter of Peter: “The Devil prowls through the world like a lion, seeking someone to devour.”

We are cautioned not to be “participants with demons” (1 Cor 10:20), not to “drink the cup of demons” (1 Cor 10:21), and to be watchful for the “disguises” of Satan (2 Cor 11:14). And on and on. The Bible leaves absolutely no room for debate on this subject.

We have, in the end, only two honest options:

1) We can come to the conclusion that the Apostles, the Prophets, and Christ Himself were all a bunch of superstitious, hallucinating fools and liars. But if that is our opinion, then it makes no sense to continue calling ourselves Christians. The atheists are right and the entire thing is just a collection of ancient fables told by ignorant savages who didn’t understand that all human evil is really the result of mental illness.

2) We can accept that demons are real; they are legion; they are prowling through the world seeking to devour our souls, and our struggle truly is not against any Earthly force but against the “cosmic powers of darkness” (Ephesians 6:12). We can believe, and tremble at the thought, that actual supernatural beings are hovering around us and working around the clock to guide us away from the light and into destruction. We can feel helpless against these beings, who are stronger and smarter than we’ll ever be, and we can cling ever closer to God, who is our protection against the armies of Hell. We can take this threat seriously, and stop laughing about it like idiots and children, and we can take our faith seriously, because our faith is the only weapon we have and the only one we need.

Padre Pio once said that if all the devils took bodily form, they’d be so numerous as to blot out the Sun. This is a horrific thought. But the true Christian does not deny it just because it is scary. Instead he takes shelter in Christ, and he marches on forward.

Those are our two choices. Or we can settle on the comfortable and cowardly and irrational option which lies between the two. We can continue claiming Christianity, wearing it around like a fashion statement, while taking to heart only the bits and pieces that make us feel warm and snuggly inside. We can proclaim a Good that triumphed over a non-existent Evil, and a Christ who delivered us from the clutches of a make believe Devil. We can make a mockery of our faith in front of the entire world, and give a false sense of security to the very souls who are most in danger of eternal damnation.

Satan would be okay with option one, but he much prefers we choose this in-between route. Those who do become agents of Hell on Earth even as they deny the reality of Hell. They are dupes of Satan. His favorite Christians. And he hopes they never repent so that he can make their acquaintance in the afterlife. (Click to Source)

The Demonic Festival Plaguing Christians Prepares to Rear Its Ugly Head Worldwide

reuters-carnival-haiti

“Haiti is 30 percent Christian, but 100 percent vodou (Haitian voodoo).”

This is a statement I’ve heard several times through my years of working in Haiti. I’ve come to realize just how close to true this actually is. Because Christians in Haiti might not practice vodou, but they are certainly wary of the negative effects it can have on their communities. An example that comes to mind is a memory of my husband disposing of a snake as three (Christian) Haitian women screamed that he had killed a demon.

The negative effects of vodou are particularly visible as we near the Haitian celebration for Mardi Gras, called Kanaval. In Haiti, Kanaval goes for weeks preceding Lent. And while many Haitian Catholics and Protestants do use this time to prepare for the Lenten season, vodou practicers openly worship spirits during the Carnival parade, known as defile. They use it as a time to assert the dominance of vodou priests and priestesses, known as houngans and mambos, on the communities. Many vodou worshippers dress up as the spirits they are worshipping. Some dress as zombies, devils or the dead. The most dedicated vodou worshippers use this time to thank the spirits that they believe helped them gain their independence from France in 1803.

In this atmosphere one might see fights break out, curses cast, even lives lost. In 2015, Kanaval was cancelled after a performer in a parade was shocked by a high-voltage wire, leading to a stampede. Eighteen were killed and 78 more injured in the resulting chaos.

While Carnival or Mardi Gras events in other parts of the world seem like nothing but big, if hedonistic, parties, the darkness evident during Haiti’s celebration of Kanaval is so contrary to the light God gave the world through Jesus. Jesus brought life, not death and destruction. Going into this season of remembering his sacrifice should not be a time to fear, but a time to rejoice and celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. And yet Christians across Haiti live in fear of what could happen to them or their families during this turbulent time of the year.

The non-profit I work for in Haiti is called LiveBeyond. We are based in Thomazeau, the self-proclaimed “vodou capital of Haiti.” There are vodou training centers and vodou temples called peristil yo in many of the villages around us. But we know that while Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy, Jesus came to give abundant life (John 10:10). We evangelize in our community daily, preaching about the healing of Jesus and the joy that he brings. We celebrated over 100 baptisms last year, as well as countless weddings and baby dedications. We offer discipleship training to new believers and build up strong spiritual leaders in our area through teleconferencing. Each week we facilitate a call between Haitian pastors and ministers from the United States so that they can share counsel and pray together.

I ask you to join us and the other Christian non-profits across Haiti like But God Ministries and Hope for Haiti’s Children in praying for our Christian brothers and sisters who will face persecution during this turbulent season. With your support we can continue to assist our brothers and sisters in confronting the oppression and darkness of Haitian vodou with the consuming power of the kingdom of light. (Click to Source)

Wisconsin teen in ‘Slender Man’ stabbing sentenced to 25 years in mental health facility

Slender Man stabbing victim continues to recover from attack

Mother of Payton Leutner writes victim impact letter to judge as one of two girls responsible for attack is set to learn how long she’ll spend in a mental health facility.

One of two Wisconsin girls who attempted to kill a classmate in 2014 in an effort to please the fictional horror character “Slender Man” has been sentenced.

Anissa Weier, 16, was sentenced Thursday to 25 years in a mental health facility — the maximum punishment possible.

She pleaded guilty in August to being a party to attempted second-degree intentional homicide, but claimed she wasn’t responsible for her actions because she was mentally ill. A jury agreed with her a month later.

One of the two Wisconsin girls accused of stabbing a classmate, Payton Leuter, in 2014 to gain the favor of a horror character named Slender Man will soon learn how long she will spend in a mental health facility.

Waukesha County Circuit Judge Michael Bohren sentenced Weier to 25 years in a psychiatric institution, retroactive to the date of the crime — meaning she would be institutionalized until age 37.

Weier, along with Morgan Geyser, lured classmate Payton Leutner into a wooded park in Waukesha in 2014. Geyser stabbed Leutner 19 times while Weier encouraged her, investigators said.

Leutner crawled out of the woods and a bicyclist found her. All three girls were 12 years old at the time of the attack.

Leutner’s mother sent the judge a letter this week detailing that the 2014 attack “has defined our lives,” and that Leutner still fears for her life.

“She will struggle with the events of that day and physical and emotional scars it left for the rest of her life,” Leutner’s mother wrote.

Both Weier and Geyser told authorities they felt they had to kill Leutner to become Slender Man’s “proxies,” or servants, and protect their families from him.

Weier apologized before her sentencing, telling the court: “I do hold myself accountable for this and that I will do whatever I have to do to make sure I don’t get any sort of delusion or whatever again.”

“I want everybody involved to know I deeply regret everything that happened that day. I know that nothing I say is going to make this right and nothing I say is going to fix what I broke,” Weier said.

Weier’s attorney argued her client shouldn’t be hospitalized past her 25th birthday. She played a video in court in which her father claimed Weier has “grown mentally and physically” and added that “she knows what she did was wrong.”

Geyser, the girl who did the stabbing, pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree intentional homicide with the agreement that she isn’t criminally responsible and shouldn’t go to prison. She will be sentenced in February, and prosecutors have asked that she be given at least 40 years in a mental hospital.

“Slender Man” started with an online post in 2009, as a mysterious specter whose image people edit into everyday scenes of children at play. He is typically depicted as a spidery figure in a black suit with a featureless white face. He was regarded by his devotees as alternately a sinister force and an avenging angel. (Click to Source)

YEAR IN REVIEW: Ex-New Age Expert Exposes the Occult Themes Hidden in the Super Bowl

guitar-1015750__480

This article was published February 7th.

Steven Bancarz used to be enamored with the occult. He actively participated in astral projection, Christ-consciousness and more.

But now he’s out to expose the New Age and the presence of the occult in seemingly mundane events, like the Super Bowl.

Sunday night, the internet was abuzz with talk of Lady Gaga’s halftime show. While many people praised the performance, Bancarz saw something malicious beneath the surface.

He posted his analysis on Facebook:

Pentagrams lining the stage at the Superbowl halftime show. Cross-dressing men with makeup dancing on stage. Flames, black clothing, 666 hand signs over the eyes. Typical halftime show.

I have an honest question for non-Christian truthers and political conspiracy activists who are Facebook friends with me and are reading this status. Because I am confused and want to know what your worldview is.

(This may seem strange to some Christians who have not been exposed to this kind of material before).

If we can grant, for the sake of argument, that there is a class of Satanic/occultic elites who pull strings and run the show from the top down (as most I am referring to believe in some sense or another), we can obviously agree there must be something beyond the natural material world of atoms and molecules in order for Satanism, ritual sacrifice and occult practices to even be feasible and existent.

Whether we look at Bohemian Grove cremation ceremonies or blood sacrifice of animals (maybe even fetal/human), even non-Christian truthers acknowledge that such things are spiritual in nature and involve energetic/spiritual exchange between a human and a non-human entity. They aren’t doing these rituals for nobody.

We also agree that they inhabit the astral/etheric realm in some sense or another. There must be spiritual entities inhabiting this realm that are responding to the rituals and practices performed by these elites. We seem to be on the same page here, and most Christians would be surprised to believe that most New Agers believe in demons like these (although they might use a different word).

I could draw from a variety of New Age, political activist and alternative media sources attesting to the reality of these demonic spiritual entities in relation to Illuminati rituals.

I have some questions I would like some truthers and political activists to answer regarding the spiritual nature of Illuminati rituals.

1. In your worldview, where did these “demons” come from? They didn’t create themselves of course. What is their origin?

2. Are these “demons” operating chaotically in the etheric planes, or do they have a kind of organization and intended purpose?

3. Is it possible that there is a hierarchy of these entities, and perhaps, a governing or ruling authority that orchestrates and organizes this plan? Is it possible that there is a leader enforcing control and order over the demons in the spirit?

4. Why is it impossible, or improbable, that such a leader could have the name “Satan”, as dark occultists (Crowley), theosophists (Blavatsky), Jesus and others specifically call him?

5. If both demons and Satan exist, and we must grant their existence in order to believe in the reality of spiritual Satanic/occult rituals happening at a governmental level, how do we conquer them? What are the antidote and weapon of spiritual warfare we are to use against such entities in the world and in our own personal lives?

6. Why can’t Jesus (not “religion” or “the Catholic church”, but Jesus Himself) possibly be the one who has the power against such entities? What evidence or reason is there to believe that it is impossible that Jesus has the victory over these demonic powers? (Click to Source)

The danger of dark forces

Americans are being warned that the increasing popularity of New Age spiritualism and the growing interest in such things as mediums, séances, and “contact” with loved ones who have died are, in reality, the occult in operation.

dark-forces

“The Medium” – a TV show about a crime-solving psychic – ran for six seasons on NBC and CBS. A police chief in Rhode Island refers grieving people to a local psychic after he says he “connected” with his dead brother. There’s even a Wiccan church in New York’s Hudson Valley that’s gone public.

Christian apologist and educator Dr. Alex McFarland issues a message of warning to those who might be drawn to such things. “This is very, very dangerous – very dangerous indeed, because the Bible says that Satan masquerades as an angel of light, but he’s a deceiver and a destroyer,” he begins.

“There are dark forces – the Bible calls them demons – that have one thing on their agenda, and that’s the condemnation of souls: that people die without Christ, that people become ensnared in dark, demonic forces.”

As for those who are longing to talk to a deceased family member?

“People who are bereaved and … think that a medium can help them contact a departed loved one, they may get a message, they may hear a voice or something,” he states, “but I assure you, it is not, it is not their loved one.” (Click to Site)
