    With the EXPONENTIAL growth in technology and media Satan is more powerful than ever in peddling his godless demonic kool-aid (John 8:44, Eph. 2:1, 6:12, 1 Peter 5:18) and mankind is more sold-out today than ever to do lawlessness and to hear his voice! Thank Almighty God that there are some websites and bloggers out there who give great political insight and news commentary of the day and that they also always include Almighty God's ETERNAL gospel and prophetic message of hope for our nation's dark hour! There was a time when things could be slightly turned around here in...

    Lucifer - the god of this world - uses his power of DEATH and FEAR to utterly manipulate this world and to cause tremendous fear to dominate Adam's fallen race as he seeks to impose his despotic self-willed agenda on all (Isa. 14:12-15, Rom. 5:12-21, Eph. 2:2-3, Heb. 2:14-15). He is a TERROR to all; in the angelic world and in this physical human world (Ezek. 28:19, Heb. 2:14-15, Rev. 12). He is a violent raging DRAGON, a roaring and powerful LION, a wise and crafty destroying and deceiving SERPENT, an ADVERSARY (i.e., Satan) and a slanderous character assassin (i.e.,...
  • NIV Quest Study Bible: Why Does God Allow Bad Things to Happen?

    No one knows the mind of God, except for God himself. He is infinite; we are finite. We are not entirely clueless about his character, however, because God speaks to us through his Word. According to the Bible, one reason bad things happen is because the whole world is under the control of the evil one (1 John 5:19). That’s why Jesus taught us to ask God to deliver us from the evil one when we pray (Matthew 6:13). Even in the Garden of Eden — in paradise, before Adam and Eve partook of the forbidden fruit — Satan was...

    An international organization of Catholic exorcists said Thursday that the existence of Satan as a real and personal being is a truth of Christian doctrine. “The real existence of the devil, as a personal subject who thinks and acts and has made the choice of rebellion against God, is a truth of faith that has always been part of Christian doctrine,” the International Association of Exorcists said in an Aug. 22 press release. The organization’s release came in response to recent remarks on the devil from Jesuit superior general Fr. Arturo Sosa, SJ, which the organization called “grave and...

    Everything you know about Satanism is wrong.At least that's what a new documentary about the Satanic Temple could be about to prove.Despite the similarity of the name, the Temple is different to The Church of Satan, established in 1966 by chat show circuit celebrity Anton Levey in San Francisco, California.Human sacrifice? Wrong. Blood drinking? Wrong. Black Mass? Well, sort of right.The Temple was founded in 2013 with a mission statement "to encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, reject tyrannical authority, advocate practical common sense and justice, and be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by...

    [Catholic Caucus] Why the Devil Hates the Blessed Virgin So Much (And Why You Should Love Her) Satan hates the Blessed Virgin Mary. In fact, he has been doing everything in his power to discourage devotion to her and instill hatred for her for two millennia. Have you ever noticed that it is Marian dogmas and devotions that stir the strongest reactions in those who reject the Church? Even some good Catholics are embarrassed by devotion to our Lady, and they feel we should not be too extreme in our veneration of her.Perhaps you, too, have wondered why the...

The Catholics met on the steps of Notre Dame Cathedral, about a five-minute walk from The Koven, where Ottawa’s Archbishop Terrence Prendergast and Auxiliary Bishop Guy Desrochers of Cornwall blessed them before they set out on their vigil, as reported in Catholicnewsworld.

    The foundational rupture in the tectonic plates of Western civilization is the breakage along the fault line of truth. The very concept of truth as we have known and inherited it is a Judeo-Christian concept. Germany became a post-Christian nation after its seminaries and universities rejected the Scriptures as God’s perfect, revealed truth. The United States has become a post-Christian nation after its best seminaries and universities—founded as teaching centers for the Word of God—rejected Scripture as God’s perfect, revealed truth. As American culture drifts further and further from anything Christian, the pressure to abandon the authority of the Bible...

    (Reuters) - A federal judge on Wednesday blocked Ohio from enforcing a new law that critics said would effectively ban most abortions in the state, starting as early as six weeks into pregnancy. U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett in Cincinnati issued a preliminary injunction against enforcing the “Heartbeat Protection Act,” saying it imposed an unconstitutional “undue burden” on a woman’s right to obtain a pre-viability abortion. The law was signed by Republican Governor Mike DeWine in April, following passage by the Republican-controlled state legislature, and was slated to take effect on July 11. It was designed to stop doctors from...

    SOLDOTNA, Alaska — A Satanic Temple member who won the right to open a regional Alaska government meeting declared “Hail Satan” during her first invocation, prompting about a dozen officials and attendees to walk out. Tuesday’s invocation that started the meeting of the Kenai Peninsula Borough also spurred a protest outside the southern Alaska borough’s administration building that drew 40 people, The Peninsula Clarion newspaper reported . Protesters held signs saying “reject Satan and his works” and “know Jesus and his love.” During her invocation, Satanic Temple member Iris Fontana said, “That which will not bend, must break, and that...

That hell contains human souls who have rejected God is established by the Lord in scripture and held by the Catholic faith since its beginning. “Jesus himself says to us, “Broad is the road that leads to destruction and many there are that go there,” said Westen. “And he said, “Narrow...

    Catholic historian: Satanic revolution against Church, Christian civilization is happening now ROME, Italy, May 16, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Renowned Church historian Roberto de Mattei told attendees of the 2019 Rome Life Forum today that they are living “in an anti-Christian era” but that they have a duty to hope and to work for the restoration of the Church amid the “globalization of chaos” carried out by those striving to erect the diabolical City of Man over and against the City of God. Professor De Mattei’s lecture, delivered in his native Italian, was titled “The Two Cities in History: Mysterium Iniquitias: From...

    In The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis suggested that we make two mistakes regarding the devil. One is to give him more authority than he deserves—then he can do what he wants. The other is to deny that he exists—then he can do what he wants. People today typically think of Satan as a symbol of evil, wearing red tights and a tail, the stuff of Saturday cartoons. He’s just as happy to be ignored as to be feared. But it’s impossible to ignore his work: broken hearts and homes, abuse, disease, and immorality. Even those who do not admit...

    Pope Francis has said that those who constantly criticise the Catholic church are “friends of the devil”. Speaking to pilgrims from southern Italy, the pontiff said that defects of the church needed to be denounced so they could be corrected, but that those who condemned “without love” were linked to the devil. “One cannot live a whole life accusing, accusing, accusing, the church,” he said. People who did, he said, were “the friends, cousins and relatives of the devil”. His remarks come as dozens of victims of clerical sexual abuse gathered in Rome ahead of an unprecedented Vatican summit on...

    Lucien Greaves, co-founder and chief spokesperson for The Satanic Temple, expressed fear that Republican Vice-President Mike Pence’s religious views unfairly favor good over evil. “Under our Constitution all religious views are protected from discriminatory laws and policies,” Greaves asserted. “Yet, we see the Vice-President of the United States repeatedly speaking out against evil, which is the core tenet of our faith.” “Worse, antipathy to our faith receives routine support from the brainwashed majority of Americans,” Greaves complained. “We are a minority in need of the protections from the hostility of the majority.

    The shade Cuomo chose was a putrid pink that could be called Luciferian pink, a color that comes with an acrid odor of sulphur. The devil wears pink and it is more than certain that political pinkos are among his most favored people. The devil—who crawls into the woodwork by pretending that he doesn’t exist—dons pink pussy caps as he does dust-ups behind the scenes, stuffs his cloven feet into pink stilettos, plants pink petunias where only roses should grow, and on Monday night was singularly honored when New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo had the One World Trade Center lit...
