Want to find a quick way to clinical insanity? Delve
into the occult.
The world has got some very strange and very people living in
it. The more this millennium rolls on the more we see freakish
behavior by people. Here is a story about a knife wielding
suspect who wrote satanic symbols on the victims walls. Netflix
is running a new series that is a dark
prequel to the Sabrina the teenage witch show. They are
also making a series called 'American
Jesus' based on a 12 year old boy who thinks he is Jesus
In India a 14 year old girl had 9 needles removed from her
throat in some
bizarre occult ritual. Another act of crazy in India? The
bodies of five members of a family were found locked
in wardrobe, suitcase and the fridge. They are not sure
what happened and while the story makes no mention of the
occult, the aspect of some kind of madness is clearly
indicated. Did you know that Tarot cards were making a
comeback? Yes, they are. The occult
is the new cool with many young people.
In Arkansas, satanists
erected a statute to Baphomet right in front of the State
Capitol Building. Yes, as Hal Lindsey's timeless book was
titled, 'Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth' could not have
been more right. The world says they don't believe in God,
but many are sure believing in Satan. These are strange and
wicked times and more and more our world is filled with strange
and wicked people. Why are these things happening? One key
reason is that the Church more and more has forsaken the basics
of the Gospel and turned themselves into social and or political
clubs. The spiritual power that makes the Church so
unique has been replaced with a business plan and a talking
paper provided by political action committee.
These days there is enormous confusion and uncertainty. People
are looking for answers and the Church just cannot or will not
provide them. Many turn to nihilism, others to pleasures still
others to the occult and the devil. Things like erecting such a
statute of some idol with a pentagram right in front of a state
capitol. These things will only bring a curse upon a nation that
has enjoyed a high status in our world and such extreme
abundance and blessings from God. The things going on in
America and even in our world, they are the big middle finger in
God's face. Be assured of this, God has indeed taken notice
particularly in a nation like ours that has enjoyed so much of
the Lord bounty.
People don't know God. No, they don't and they think they
can just keep on mocking and blaspheming him and that he is
either asleep or does not care. The simple fact is and it is
a fact is that when Ancient Israel did the exact same
things, set up idols and evil temples and began to rebel against
God and sacrificed their children, he did not lower the boom
right away. He waited and waited. He gave the people plenty of
time to repent. Why? Because when God moves against such evil,
the bodies will pile up in the street unburied, the cities will
be burned and those left? They will wish they had died because
of what awaits them.

exactly what he was going to do and why and then he told

They didn't listen.
The pride of people today is real - no less real than the
pride of the people of Israel in those days. They had the pride
in the presence of the Temple. Today Christians have pride in
the presence of the Church. They think God will not lower the
boom because we have some people who go to a building they call
a Church. Here is what the prophet of those days said about
The word that came to
Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
Stand in the gate of the LORD'S house, and proclaim
there this word, and say, Hear the word of the
all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship
the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel,
Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause
you to dwell in this place. Trust ye not in lying words,

of this nation is real and today the American people revel
not in God's goodness, but more and more in their own
wickedness, unbelief, apostasy, pleasures and yes
abominations. Shall God not recompense a nation such as
this? When Israel sinned against God he sent them prophets
over many years to warn them of their sins and what he was
going to do. The Lord was patient and waited. But one day he
stopped waiting and acted.
He then let loose his fury. Here is how the prophet lays out
some of what he saw after the Lord dealt with the beloved
city of God, Jerusalem.
How hath the Lord
covered the daughter of Zion with a
cloud in his anger, and cast down from heaven unto
the earth the beauty of Israel, and remembered not his
footstool in the day of his anger! The Lord hath
up all the habitations of Jacob, and hath not pitied:
he hath thrown down in his wrath the strong holds of the
daughter of Judah; he hath brought them down to the

We Americans think we are so great, we have all these
wonder weapons that are used on children and the poorest of the
poor. We sell them and even help others use them. Yes, we
sacrifice children to the war gods of the Pentagon who have found
a way to turn the blood of children into DoD dollars. Even today,
there is a new atrocity in Yemen where many
children were killed in a US supported Saudi Airstrike. This
was no mistake, this airstrike was on a refugee
camp. They knew exactly who they were hitting. What is this?
Nothing more than a variation on a theme child sacrifice. Killing
children. America is right there beside the killers arming
them, giving them all manner of support, including joining
in the Strikes. America is very good at killing, the
statistics on it. Here is where people miss the boat.
You see, the devil is not interested in the methodology of his
goals, only that they are reached and his goal is to kill the kids
and blame as many others as possible in the process. He knows that
God is not going to sit still for the abominations for long. The
key here is that God is merciful and will allow mankind to change
course, repent and stop doing evil. This is where the role of the
prophet and today, the more courageous variety of pastors comes
in. Some are telling it like it is on the abortion issue. But most
fall silent on the war crimes issue. They don't want to deal with
that form of it. In short, killing dark skinned kids in Yemen is
OK, killing kids here in the womb in the US is not. I hate to put
it so bluntly, but that is the moral compass they are operating
from, as though God cares less about kids with dark skin than
others and the victims are any less dead.
God hates child killing. Killing the innocent is something that
will guarantee you place on God's 'wrath and fury' list -
if a person, people or system does not repent of it.
But these are all things that occultists have pushed for. From
Mdme. Blavlatsy, and Margret Sanger - killing kids and
following after the dark gods of the occult. The devil used these
women (and others) to start a massive movement in America...
toward the satanic 'left hand path'. That is where she has been
heading ever since. But let me tell you something that many folks
don't want to deal with. Satanism, and occultism will often lead a
person to the kinds of crimes listed above. It can and does drive
people insane. Look at Charles Manson. These days people do their
best to downplay the occult connections of him, but check
this out, in his own words.
No, occultism is the road to the devil and the devil has no love
for any son of man. Dabble in that stuff and you are very likely
going to lose your mind and then your soul.
But amateurs who dabble in Tarot cards, Astrology and Wicca, they
don't realize that those things are just the lure, the 'dangling
carrot' to draw people deeper into the things of satan.
Our Lord warned the Church at Thyatira about the 'depths of Satan'
(Rev 2:24). Smyrna dwelt where
Satan's seat was (Rev 2:13a)
and where he dwelled (Rev 2:13b).
We Christians here in America more and more need to be ready to
deal with what those Churches had to deal with because more and
more, our nation is becoming a place where Satan's Seat is. We
have decked ourselves out in white robes seeming to be so good and
righteous, but behind the cloth are all manner of corruption,
violence, bloodshed deceits and perversions. We are just
considerably more adept at draping our evil in a cloak of good.
Mind you, I don't like having to say these things. I take NO
PLEASURE in saying them, but this is what not just our
nation, where the whole world is heading. No one marks it
because there is no respect nor fear of God. Just the lust for
'more'. More money, a bigger this, a more luxurious that. Everyone
is pushing to get more or to get someone else to do what they want
- this is what America's political system has degenerated to. It
is all about - 320 million little 'think they are gods'
trying to tell everyone else what to read, who to see, what to
buy, what to eat, how much of this you can use and whom you should
like and who you should hate. Rather than listening to the
admonitions of the Lord they listen to just about any pied piper
with a Cable News show or large Facebook following to tell them
the new political, economic or spiritual fad.
This is one reason why our nation is stuck on stupid, our Churches
are dying and impotent and the world is in a state of rising
tensions. No one listens to God anymore or takes his counsel. They
have their myriad of secular counselors, consultants, advisors and
analysts whose advice must never
refer to God or call the nation to repentance. Can't do that...
nope... you could lose your access to the White House, the Senate,
or other government agency if you did. But preach the gospel of
Margret Sanger, and doors open for you in government. Strange
things have been going on in Government since the end of WWII. Very
strange (read that link with the greatest of
care). But this one I
think most of you will find of great interest. This one
My point here is not to denigrate the dead. I don't do that here,
but to show you that for many long years, the occult and
occultists have had a lot of influence within our secretive
federal agencies. Their presence and influence is not a
'conspiracy theory' but an established fact that not even the
those who are dead can deny... they often simply did not
deny those ties! Our government has been under assault
for a long, long time and you know what? The evil is only now
beginning to be so rank it's nearly impossible to miss.
Then there is the connection of the occult with sex. Yes, sex is a
big thing in the occult as it was during the days of Ancient
Israel. They had their sex orgies under their pagan gods as well
and deeply angered the Lord. Henry
Mankow has a great piece here on the occult sex connection,
it's not long and hits the main points. You want to know why our
society is sex obsessed, porn is making billions of dollars and
pop stars make their living showing as much skin and talking
filthy to their audiences? The devil, that's why.
Yes, there is a plan to destroy the moral fiber of America and
yes, the devil is behind it and no, there really are not that many
real, true and blood bought saints who know how to pray, wage
spiritual warfare and do... DO as God commands. Lots of
nominal Christians, very few true disciples. Lot's of religious
loudmouths, very few whose life shines forth the light of the
gospel. This is one reason why the occult is rising. The Church is
not holy and often is engaged in some of the worse kinds of sins.
Look at what is happening in the Catholic Church today.
Brothers, I write these things to you today because our nation and
our world is falling right into the devil's grasp. People are
going to run with reckless abandon when they are told to worship
the image of the beast and take mark. There will be little
revulsion.. especially if people know they can't buy or sell
without that mark and not taking it will get you killed. Advertise
as the new cool, hip or Android App and they are likely to crash
the internet with people trying to get it.
This generation is probably going to be the antichrist generation
and the doorway many will take to get there will be through the
