Satanists Demand Equal Time With Jesus as Antichrist Spirits Rise.

It’s hardly the abomination of desolation that Jesuswarned about when He taught about signs of the end times (Matt. 24:15). But it’s nevertheless a disturbing sign of how hard antichrist spirits are pushing to push Jesus out of our minds.

Oklahoma recently decided to allow a Ten Commandments monument on the state Capitol’s lawn. This is the type of thing that typically puts radical atheist activists up in arms, with billboards and lawsuits aimed at removing any reminder of God and His Son from the public square.

But the atheists haven’t launched an attack—at least not yet. Instead, other antichrist spirits are rising up, demanding equal time to celebrate their religions. Indeed, Satanists and Hindus want Oklahoma to erect statues for their false gods.

“A Satanist group has petitioned to have its monument, with an interactive display for children, put up alongside the Ten Commandments. And this week, the Hindu organization applied to have a monkey god statue placed on the Capitol grounds,” Reuters reports. “Socially conservative Christian groups fought for years to have the Ten Commandments displayed at the statehouse, and the monument went up in 2012.”

Oklahoma City lawyer David Slane put it rightly when he told Reuters the legislature essentially opened a Pandora’s box. As it turns out, if the state refuses to allow Satanists, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists—and God knows who else—to erect monuments on the property, they are violating the Equal Protection Clause.

I’d say it’s ironic how Satan is using legalism to push his antichrist agenda in Oklahoma’s government, but it’s more strategic than ironic. Oklahoma’s governing officials argue that they live in a largely Christian state with values and ideals that differ from Satanists. And that’s just why the antichrist spirits are circling. You won’t find antichrist spirits where Christ isn’t being preached, as the goal of the antichrist spirit is to replace Jesus, not merely have a statue next to His.

The antichrist spirit is rapidly rising in this hour, and you can expect to see more manifestations in the months and years ahead. The apostle John warned of this in his first epistle, noting, “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour” (1 John 2:18).

And again, “Every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world” (1 John 4:3). And again, “For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 1:7).

Before the Antichrist, Satan, comes on the scene, we will see more and more antichrist spirits rising to push Jesus out of the mainstream. Like John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus’ first coming, these demonic forerunners have been voices crying in the wilderness for years, preparing the way for Satan himself with deceiving agendas that target the confused, hurt and lost.

Indeed, the antichrist agenda will become bolder, and it will grow darker in the days again. But like I said last week, despite the doom and gloom, Jesus is still Lord. Our job is to let our light shine, speak the truth of the gospel in love, and keep our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, so that we can rescue people from the kingdom of darkness and escape the prophesied great falling awayamong the saints.

Beyonce Admits To Demon Possession While Embracing Satanic Imagery.


Do you allow your child to be influenced by her demonic music?

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” Ephesians 5:11

In these last days that we are living in, the powers of darkness and evil and beginning to openly emerge into our everyday lives. Take Beyonce’s performance at this year’s Super Bowl. It was filled to overflowing with satanic symbols and imagery, Illuminati hand signs, and sinister images created by her light show. But that was not the worst of it…

As you will see in this video, Beyonce freely admits being possessed by a spirit she calls Sasha Fierce, and mentions her time and again in interviews over the span of multiple years. Producers of this video,Good Fight Ministries have this to say about her:

“Beyonce is one of the hottest artists on the scene today. But as we’ll see, there is something sinister behind her success, as Beyonce even admits, and millions of fans are clueless as to who they are actually “worshiping.”

“I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am,” – Beyonce is pictured here wearing the classic goat’s head symbol used exclusively in Satan worship.

Parents, pay close attention to what your kids are listening to. Beyonce’s music will corrupt them and fill their heads with negative, sinister and confusing imagery. Beyonce freely admits to being possessed by her spirit guide, Sasha Fierce. So lets take her at her word, assume that she is possessed with a demon and working for Satan, and don’t let her and her music within 500 miles of  your children.

Satanists planning rally for Florida Gov. Rick Scott.


Florida Gov. Rick Scott has some unexpected, and likely unwanted, new support (Logo from Satanic Temple website/Scott …

Florida Gov. Rick Scott may have earned himself a new constituency, but the devil is in the details.

Local news site WPBF.com reported that a group of Satanists plans to hold a rally outside Scott’s office on Jan. 25 to support the governor’s signing of a bill that allows students to pray at school events.

“We’ve gotten such a response, it’s just impossible for me to know what that translates into,” Satanic Temple spokesman Lucien Greaves told WPBF, regarding how many will show up at the rally.

“You don’t build up your membership unless people know about you,” Greaves said in a separate interview with the Palm Beach Post. “So this allows us to get our message out in public. We’re hoping it will reduce the stigmatism.”

The Satanic Temple was launched in 2012 with what Greaves described as being “more or less an online community.”

The group’s website describes itself as being different from other, better-known Satanic organizations. Greaves said the rally is part of a larger ongoing effort at making the group’s beliefs more commonplace in mainstream discussions of religion and belief. From the website:

“Though we have far to go before public education leads to a mainstream embrace of our Satanic religion, we feel that our own public ‘coming out’ will go a long way toward raising the consciousness of the populace … and the social environment has never yet been better prepared for the welcoming of a new Satanic era.”

The group’s founder, Neil Bricke, is scheduled to speak at the rally.

“We feel it’s time for Satanists to come out and say exactly who we are,” Greaves said.

So, what does Scott think of the newly organized support?

“This is a great country. Everyone has a voice,” Gov. Scott’s press secretary wrote in an email toABCNews.com.

Why a Former Satanist Thanks God for Halloween.


Halloween
(Reuters/Lee Celano)

Whenever I think of Halloween, my memory immediately goes back to when I was in third grade. I wore a Batman costume. Remember when they made the mask out of the most inexpensive plastic manufactured and it was held on your head by a single rubber band stapled into place? The hole for you to breathe through had to be smaller than the eye of a needle. And, when you arrived at the front door to shout, “trick or treat,” you could only muster a muffled attempt at sound. Once I accomplished the goal of attaining the treat, I would lift the mask in order to examine my bounty, only to find that I literally dripped sweat. I spent most of my evening drying my face and wishing that more neighbors would give the cherished Snickers or M&M’s.

Now that I am all grown up, I’ve traded in my costume for a much more fulfilling Halloween experience; I no longer wear a mask while in costume! Oh yes, I still enjoy the festive occasion of visiting my neighbors in the attempt to attain those Snickers or M&M’s. And, I would say that I (almost) deserve the prized candy while donning my Goofy costume.

Goofy’s my favorite Disney character because he lives life simply and seems to enjoy himself so much. I know, you’re thinking that someone who’s goofy might not be the smartest in the pack, but you’ve got to admit, as one grows up, we have a real tendency to not allow ourselves to be goofy and enjoy life. So, I choose to wear my mask-less Goofy costume with the awesome hat with ears. I don’t even mind putting on a little make-up. But, only once a year will I wear make-up!

You may ask yourself, “Hey, why isn’t this guy taking Halloween more seriously? Doesn’t he know that it is evil?” Yes, I know. I used to be a Satanist. And, I used to take Halloween very seriously—so seriously that I believed the lies that are associated with Halloween.

Anton Szandor LaVey, the founder of the Satanic Church in 1966 and proclaimed author of The Satanic Bible was someone I used to listen to for “spiritual” growth. He stated that after one’s own birthday, the two major satanic holidays are Walpurgisnacht and Halloween. I literally took him at his word. But, how good is his word?

LaVey’s real name is Howard Stanton Levey, and he didn’t really even write The Satanic Bible. He came up with a much more theatrical name and plagiarized the works of Ragnar Redbeard, John Dee and Ayn Rand. (For more information on who LaVey really was, go to refugeministries.cc/blog.)

LaVey states what Halloween is in The Satanic Bible, but he never gave a reason for it being a major holiday. Nor did he ever give a method of observing such a major holiday for the Satanist. The Satanist who follows LaVey’s teachings is left without direction. One is left on his own. I bring all of this up about LaVey because I have read and heard too many Christians stating that Halloween is evil because they take LaVey at his word. I’ve learned my lesson. I no longer listen to Mr. Howard Stanton Levey.

So, what is Halloween all about? Many have heard unsubstantiated reports of Halloween beginning with the ancient Druids. Truth be told, we know very little about the Druids. We do know that ancient civilizations were prone to superstitions. And superstition from early pagan civilizations is primarily where we get the belief that the veil between the living and the dead is most thin on the eve of Oct. 31.

Because of this false belief, many pagans participated in condemning practices. We know this. We know that witches of old and today build bonfires for reasons that God Himself condemns. We know that “bobbing” for apples was used as a means of divination. Again, divination is a condemned practice in Deuteronomy 18:10. We know there are a lot of things going on at Halloween that we need not participate in, like the lies and superstitions about Halloween.

As a Christian, my life is to honor and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. And the way I do that is by knowing the truth. Jesus promised me that knowing the truth would set me free. The truth sets one free of lies. And lies, when acted upon, result in bondage. That’s exactly what occurs in pagan civilizations—both ancient and today. They do not have revealed truth. But the Christian does. We’re not left “in the dark” seeking hidden knowledge. God has revealed Himself in His Son and the Bible.

I simply love this verse and live its truth: “He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins” (Col. 1:13-14).

I’m not to be dominated by darkness—especially in my mindset. Satan is no more active on Halloween than any other day of the year, yet so many of us allow ourselves to be dominated by fear—for no reason.

Enjoy Halloween! How? By being free! I know that the theme of death surrounds the celebration of Halloween. I know that the activities of Halloween had pagan beginnings. I know that there are even criminally minded occultists that do very evil things on Halloween. But that doesn’t nullify the reality that we are not to be dominated by all of this. We can celebrate life instead of death. We can participate in activities without compromising our Christian faith.

Let me explain this one: Bobbing for apples may have been used as a means of divination, but when I bob, I’m not divining anything. I’m simply attempting to get an apple out of the water without drowning! I’m playing and enjoying myself—free from the pagan practice. And since there may be criminally minded occultists out there doing very evil things on Halloween, I as a Holy-Spirit-filled Christian, should be out there doing very godly things.

How are you going to celebrate Halloween? I plan to be Goofy, enjoy life, enjoy God and participate in a godly manner by sharing His love with the pagans.

Anne’s Answer to Abuse.


Surviving Abuse Christian Testimony.

Beginning in infancy, Anne experienced severe abuse while being used by family members in Satanic rituals. When creative attempts to escape reality failed to ease her pain, Anne decided on suicide. But a kind stranger on a crisis hotline introduced her to a ministry that eventually led her to a relationship with God. Anne found the answers to surviving abuse in the healing power of God’s love.

Anne’s true story is one of many uniquely featured testimonies from you, the members and visitors of this site. Each story reveals a life transformed by Christian faith.

Anne’s Answer to Abuse

From infancy on, I was ravaged by abuse — physical, sexual, emotional and spiritual. Some members of my mother’s family were practicing Satanists who used me in their rituals.

Survival Mode

When I was nine, my teacher was also into Satanism, and by the end of the school year with her I had lost all hope. I never dreamed about my future or marriage.  I lived daily in survival mode.

I learned early on how to deny my own experiences, rewrite them, or excuse them because “it must be my fault.”  I blanked-out months and even years of time.  My only comfort and escape came from my cat, my teddy bear and my books.  I read avidly to keep my mind off my own life.

Abuse kept me isolated and I had no friends.  The neighbors had to know things were bad at my house, but back then non-interference was just the way it was.

I Decided on Suicide

By age 18 pain and fear overwhelmed me. I had been watching people around me to see if anyone had any answers, but no one did. So,  finally I decided on suicide and planned my death.

As a last-ditch effort I called a crisis helpline. A kind stranger got me in touch with a group called Teen Challenge and two weeks later I began to go to their meetings. I gave God permission to help me, which is not the same thing as completely turning my life over to him. He accepted me where I was and began to pour out his love to me.

From Darkness to Daylight

My life changed dramatically for the better, a daylight from darkness difference.  I fell in love with Jesus Christand became a joyful “Jesus Freak” (circa 1971).

But I didn’t understand that God needed to deal with my past. I thought “being a new creation” meant the past was just gone.  I naively thought God had already done everything I needed.

I Needed Healing

I spent the next forty years running to God and running from God.  The ritual abuse I had endured left me with horrible pain, fear and deception about God, as well as many dysfunctional behaviors.  I needed physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing.

The stress wore me down and I was often ill or in pain.  I used prescription medicines wrongly and became an addict as I tried to medicate my feelings instead of my body. All of this happened while I tried to be a Christian wife and mother.

I caused my spouse and daughters so much trouble and pain. I never considered walking away from Christianity because I knew no one else had the answers to life’s questions.

Finding the Answer

In 2003 I finally came to the end of my own efforts and turned my whole life overto God’s care. After this I began to recover from my addiction to pain pills.

It’s been exactly four years since this process began.  I’m so grateful to God.  He has done more to change me and help me in these few years than in the 41 years since I met him. I finally stopped resisting and let him truly be my God.

Finding Peace

I now have real, lasting peace. The horrible deceptions I had about God are banished and I am able to trust him and experience his care and love.  Much of the hideous fear and emotional damage has been healed and God assures me there will be more healing.

I now live an honorable, functional Christian life. I can help others now.  God’s Word is a comfort and help to me. Psalms 139 is a favorite of mine.  In it God assures me that he made me, loves me and knows every day of my life before I live it. He helped me survive all the abuse by giving me creative mental escapes.

In the eyes of this world I was a total loser, a wreck.  But, God chose me and overcame everything, even my own self-destructiveness, to give me his love and a new life. Words are too limited to express accurately God’s greatness, compassion and creativity.

I am loved. I have a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11 NASB).

From Anne.

{ Day 64 }.


Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. Mark 4:15

Satan goes to great lengths to distort our concepts of God.

But because such distortions can serve his “interests” in our lives, Satan is willing to invest as much time and work as it takes to secure those vulnerable areas of our minds for his own purposes.

Those inaccurate, inadequate concepts place us in great peril.

To the degree that our ideas about God are lower than the truth of God, to that degree we are surely weakened and defeated.

In those places and upon the foundation of distorted truth Satan is able to gain ground and set up his strongholds in our lives.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

If there are inaccurate, distorted images of You within my life, Father, take them from me and reveal the truth of Your holiness.

Satan will have no stronghold in my life.

We dare not decide to ignore and just learn to live with the lies and misconceptions about God’s personality that have been planted in our minds.

Suspected Satanists Burn Teenager Alive.


 

 

Just days before Halloween, news reports of satanic rituals are making global headlines.

In what police suspect was part of a satanic ritual, an 18-year-old girl was burned alive in South Africa’s Johannesburg park.

Now in a coma, 75 percent of Kirsty Theologo’s body was burned in the incident.

Her lungs and throat were damaged, according to a report in The Star newspaper.

One boy cut the burning girl’s hand and held it over a Bible so the blood could soak it, the paper reported.

Another girl tried to put out the flames by rolling Theologo in the sand and sustained burns that landed her in the hospital.

The four men turned themselves in to police and are scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.

Meanwhile in Britain, authorities rescued at least 400 African children who were brought to the country often for use in blood rituals conducted by witch doctors, according to a report in the BBC earlier this month.

The report cited a cultural belief in the power of human blood in so-called juju rituals.

“Our experience tells us that traffickers can be anybody.

They can be people with power, people with money or people involved in witchcraft,” Christine Beddoe, director of the anti-trafficking charity Epcat U.K., told the BBC.

“Trafficking can involve witch doctors and other types of professionals in the community who are using those practices.”
