Satan’s influence is growing rapidly in the private as well as the public  sphere and especially in our government and Hollywood. Satan, through his followers are incrementally taking control of our country, as a whole. I am concentrating on our country for a very good reason. It is, or should I say was the most powerful nation in the last few centuries since the British Empire.

 The Soviet Union or “The Evil Empire” as described by Ronald Reagan, has increased its influence for decades knowing that they could not win a head-on confrontation, known as “MAD” (mutually assured destruction) so they have infiltrated our society through the influence of home-grown socialistic communism and marxism.They have been rising through the ranks in our government and  influencing those in control. The community organizing efforts that  have been secretly planning their own ways of subverting our constitution, have been exposed for pressuring  the banking industry to give loans to the poor who could not pay it back and contributed to the housing collapse that we are currently suffering from. It was also government officials who through “Fanny May and Freddy Mack” pressured banks to do the same. It was through these measures primarily that caused our banking industry  to collapse and require the 700 Billion dollar “Banking Bailout” that was approved by George Bush before he left office. Most of that money was never used for that purpose and I understand that something like 350 billion of that money is being held for use as a political slush fund. This also included the government officials on the U.S. Senate “Banking Committee” who acted to change the ways that they had traditionally operated and played a big role in the housing collapse. Our President is a prime example of what the community organizers can carry out. This has been exposed to some degree and the largest organization  that had operated and had even influenced elections through voter fraud and strong-arm tactics at the polls has been de-funded and are being forced to close and reorganize because of all of the fraudulent tactics that they got caught doing! They will reappear  in a different form with the same people running things. Even at the polling places, the new black panthers were caught  intimidating  voters and were allowed to get away with it in certain areas during a previous election.

Now you might ask: what does this have to do with “Satan and Spiritual Danger”? It has everything to do with the “Spiritual Battle In Heavenly Places” that the Bible refers to and the increase in evil that will take place “In The Last Days”. We have been in the last days at least since Christ was resurrected and the birth of the Church at Pentecost occurred. I am using modern-day examples of the spiritual battle that is taking place in our own back yard!

There was a time when the practices of those involved in various aspects of the occult were kept secret to a great degree but it is all out in the open now! The “church of Satan” is a prime example along with the “new age movement” which has given a rebirth to many of the very old wicked practices. Witchcraft is out in the open operating under the name “wicca” and others as well. Witches are proud of their “craft” and publicly operate, but the most evil aspects are still kept secret. Animal and even human sacrifices take place. It is my understanding that there are covens that never report births because they are going to use the babies as human sacrifices. Yes, there is a great increase of Evil in our midst today! Those in hollywood are heavily into the occult and have  television programs or series about the related topics from time to time. Abortion has become a household term because it has become so common. The value of life has been greatly diminished. More than 50 million babies have been disposed of for the sake of convenience. If people would only open their eyes to all of this and the Body of Christ would wake up to this great increase of wickedness and pray their hearts out for  the revival of the Church and actually get involved in this battle for the minds and souls of our youth then we could at least put a dent in this evil uprising. I write about Satan and the spirit world because I have personally seen Satan and demons beginning when I was 18 and have seen great evil in the human population and this awareness, especially as a Christian, has been unavoidable. I believe that my ability to see all the evil that I have seen is due to a spiritual gift called “Spiritual Discernment” or “Discerning of Spirits”. Please pray for holiness  in the “Body of Christ” and against this onslaught of evil or we as a nation will not last much longer!Prayer is just the beginning! We all who name the name of Christ need to have “the intestinal fortitude” AKA, guts to personally get involved, along with prayer, and write to our public officials and at least try to put some pressure on them to not only say what they think that you want for them to say, but also actually do what is right and what is  best for our country and our world, as a whole! You can be sure that Satan and his demons are at work behind the scenes, in the spiritual world pleased that we,”mankind” do so little as Christians and as Americans in general, to fight this battle! How can we ever win a spiritual battle unless we personally get involved with great enthusiasm!

In the Name of Christ.

Now back to the “Gifts of The Spirit”. Each “true believer” receives at least one spiritual gift and these are available in the books of 1st Corinthians chapters 12, and 14, 1st Peter chapter 4, Ephesians chapter 4, Romans chapter 1, and of course in the book of Acts which describes the coming of The Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

Today is a time like no other in the history of the Earth. The battle is raging for the hearts, minds, and souls of our children. The enemy of all mankind has conceived all manner of traps, snares, and deceptions to keep or prevent as many human beings from knowing the Truth which is God’s Truth and no other. The battle is on Earth yet the primary players are in another realm or dimension. This takes an incredible amount of “Spiritual Discernment” as well as caution when defending against an invisible enemy who hates all of humanity because we are created in the image of God and God is their primary enemy. That which makes it even more difficult to understand is that the battle has already been won by “The Word of God”, when He died on the cross and paid the sin debt for all who will believe a simple yet astonishing truth. “We are “Saved By Faith”. All other religions are in one form or another, “works based” in their understanding of what is “good” and what is needed for atonement, of one sort or another.

The description of this spiritual battle in the Bible has proven to be absolutely true. I know this from personal experience yet  it has taken decades for me to even begin to understand why I have seen and experienced all that I have. I finally turned to the Bible after God personally stepped into my life at the age of 30. There was a long interval where I was like a ship without a rudder because I received Christ as my Savior at the age of 6 and for a variety of reasons why,  it took a long time for me to look to “The Book” for some answers. I was under Satans attacks for most of my life through great suffering and this kept me from being the soldier in the battle that God had planned for my life! I am now in “The Word” daily and have been doing so as much as possible for more than 20 years. It is now like daily food that is every bit as important as food for the body. The better the nutrition for the body then the healthier will be the body, and it is the same for our soul and spirit! Without daily feeding on God’s word, we become not only malnourished but leave ourselves open to attack by “the enemy”. This does not mean that we are not attacked daily any way, it means that we are better prepared to resist the attacks. I have found that for me it is necessary to listen to the audio Bible daily if possible and also listen every evening to as many of my favorite Bible expositors as possible.  Since I live alone it is possible for me to spend most of my waking hours filling my mind with God’s truths. It is something like an immunization. The enemy still tries to get a foot-hold in my life but when his attacks happen, I know why and do not turn and run but stand my ground, with the addition of spiritual armor from God and I can even use the LORD’s offensive  weapon which is God’s Word! The Spiritual Warfare today is raging as much as ever in our country and world and we all need to turn from these worldly persuits as much as possible and turn to The Holy Spirit of Christ to empower us with the filling of The Spirit and the strength to remove the worldliness from our lives so that we can focus on the truly important aspects of this battle. As long as we are distracted by the worldly things like television, sports, personal pursuits such as seeking the pleasures of this life then we are almost useless to the Lord’s work that He has established for each of us personally. We are to have a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, and without that relationship then there is little evidence that we are even saved! The Bibe says that we are known by our fruits! These fruits are evidence of our spiritual condition! Are you really saved! If so then we need to show these fruits, first to our Lord in love, worship, praise, thankfulness and by truly adoring Him! If these “Fruits of The Spirit” are evident to the Lord then they will be evident to other “true believers” as well! Before we can truly fight this “spiritual battle”, we need to get right with God and put on the “spiritual armor” of God that is enumerated in God’s word.

 The Church today has gotten soft and we are not much of a threat to Satan!  A sure way of knowing that we are “right with God” and “In the battle” in a way that really counts is when we are under attack by Satan! If we are not a threat then Satan is going to focus his attacks on those who are truly a threat!  Are you suffering under Satanic attick? If not, then that is a sure sign that you are not in the battle, and possibly not even saved!
