Hobbit Truth-Warriors in Sauron's American Mirkwood

"In this postmodern age many think that no one can know Truth. It is true that we cannot know truth if there is no revelation from God."  – Vishal Mangalwadi

Dr. Vishal Mangalwadi (1949---), founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement, is an Indian philosopher and social reformer.   He has lectured in over 40 countries and published seventeen books including "The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization!"  Mangalwadi's Revelation Movement exists to re-establish the cultural authority of VERITAS (Truth) because God has revealed Truth in scripture and God has given man the mind and clues to help us discover what He has concealed. Proverbs 25:2.  (RevelationMovement.com)

In a message entitled "The Kingdom of Darkness Encircles North America," Vishal writes that his third visit to North America opened his eyes to the magnitude and power of a massive force of darkness facing the faithful.  Because darkness has deeply penetrated much of the body of the church it is hard to estimate how much essential theology and how many churches in North America have been lost.  

Nevertheless, there are truth-warriors determinedly digging in their heels against the darkness rapidly encompassing both the church and North America.  Vishal compared these truth-warriors to Jedi knights and the Hobbits of middle earth who carried the day against Sauron:

"When Luke Skywalker joined the Star Wars saga, he had no idea that he was a Jedi. Nor did the tiny, motley crew that teamed up with him know what they were up against. To mix metaphors, they were little Hobbits, unaware of the importance of their mission."

The Return of Sauron’s Kingdom of Darkness

 During the “Fading Years,” many things of “beauty and wonder remained on earth…” but also many things of “evil and dread.” Then all things began to change.  A living darkness crept slowly through Greenwood the Great, and fear walked there in shadowy glades.  Then the name of the forest was changed to Mirkwood, for the “nightshade lay deep there,” and few dared pass through.  Whence the evil came few could tell,

"...and it was long ere even the Wise could discover it.  It was the shadow of Sauron and the sign of his return...and all folk feared the Sorcerer of Dol Guldur, and yet they knew not at first how great was their peril."   (The Silmarillion, J.R.R. Tolkien, p. 299)  

Sauron’s Kingdom of Darkness is visible in both the devastating loss of God's revealed Truth, moral law and norms in our culturally desolate, increasingly lawless secular-atheist society as well as in the failure of Americans, within and without the whole body of the Christian Church, to restrain their own corrupt passions. (James 1:14-15)  

Devilish depravity in the guise of special rights and privileges such as free phones, free gas, free housing, and free condoms together with the myth of evolution as scientific fact, perverse sex-education for tots and teens, same-sex and kundalini-Holy Spirit equality, the lie of global warming, paganized Christianity and a long list of destructive freedoms such as unfettered killing as 'choice,' and ‘gay’ marriage and pornography and sodomy as Constitutionally guaranteed rights.   All of this depravity and more has become dictatorial both outside of the Church, where Sauron's 'secular' servants of sin demand all others give up their God-given rights in gratification of depraved desires, and within, where Sauron’s 'Christian' servants of sin sweep away the essentials of the faith to make room for mindless, self-centered values resulting in lawless churches:

Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness. You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin. No one who abides in Him sins; no one who sins has seen Him or knows Him. Little children, make sure no one deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous; the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother. (1 John 3:4-10)

Lawless churches are nothing more than Sauron's social clubs for his servants of sin where they,

“…exercise no discernment, enforce no standards, and teach more pop psychology than timeless truth. Naturally, lawless churches are populated with lawless Christians, the greatest absurdity of them all. “What fellowship have righteousness and lawlessness?” 1 Corinthians 6:14 (How can I walk North and South at the same time? Lawless Christians", Dan Popp, Renew America, Mar. 10, 2012)

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian who counseled and delivered thousands of people suffering from demonic bondage in its various forms throughout the world argues that sin cuts a person off from God. Sin opens the door to Sauron, meaning to demonic oppression and possession seen in relation to psychological distortions having the following predominant characteristics: narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature, violent temper, belligerence, meanness, abnormal sexuality, blasphemous thoughts and rebellious, bigoted attitudes toward Christ and God, conscious atheism, and destructive, murderous rages. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

Cutting Edge Ministries David Bay identifies the ‘values’ of the lawless as Satanic, and adds that lawless Americans at every level of society, both in and out of the church, have embraced Satanic values with no conscious awareness that they have done so.  When a people believe in nothing higher than 'self,' they make personal selfishness, intellectual arrogance, irrational feelings, lying, covetousness, physical lust, hate and envy their gods.  The elevation of these Satanic values produces in them other strong desires: for power over others, for the amassing of material possessions and the acquisition of privilege, status, star-power, and wealth as well as powerful sexual urges that must be satisfied at any cost, no matter who or what might be harmed.  (Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan, Bay, Cutting Edge Ministries)

The Christian church is the only element in society with the moral authority and the availing remedy to counteract such manifest evil, but much of America's Christian church has been compromised, thereby rendered impotent.   Having compromised and conformed itself in one way or another to our paganized culture and dictates of the scientism/evolution crowd it is no longer salt and light, thus on the fast track to being spewed out.

Malachi Martin, author of "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," briefly outlines the spiritually desolate condition and resulting consequences of the compromising church:

"Among the general population of Catholics and Christians of other denominations, large numbers of people no longer learn even so basic a prayer as the Our Father.   In churches and parochial schools alike, the subject of Hell is avoided, as one Midwestern priest put it, in order not to put people on a 'guilt trip.'  The idea of sin is likewise avoided, according to the same source, in order not to do 'irreparable damage to what has been taught for the past fifteen years." (P. xvi)

Fearing rejection by our paganized culture and scientistic/evolutionary establishment, compromising churches refuse to contaminate what is termed the 'rational' and ‘scientific’ with the essentials of the faith necessary both for salvation and for the recognition of evil.  And without the grace that is born of true faith,

 "....Satan does what he does best---he ceases to exist in the eyes of those who do not see." (ibid)

Consequently, a favorable climate exists for the occurrence of demonic oppression and possession among the general population:

"Possession among the general population is so clear that it is attested to daily by competent social and psychological experts, who for the most part, appear to have no 'religious bias.'  Our cultural desolation---a kind of agony of aimlessness coupled with a dominant self-interest---is documented for us in the disintegration of our families.  In the break-up of our educational system.  In the disappearance of publicly accepted norms of decency in language, dress and behavior.  In the lives of our youth, everywhere deformed by stunning violence and sudden death, by teenage pregnancy; by drug and alcohol addiction; by disease; by suicide; by fear." And whether spoken or acted out without explanation, the dominant question of the deformed generation is, "What can you do for me?  What can my parents, my friends, my acquaintances, my enemies, my government, my country, do for me?" (pp. xiii-xiv)

Overshadowing secular-atheist America is a malevolent, living darkness sweeping virtually unseen in and through our society and compromising churches. 

Dr. Carl Raschke, Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver, concurs.  His chilling book “Painted Black” takes you through the minds of the deviant and murderous and then explores the growing evil sweeping through our hometowns.  He concludes that the decadence, pornography, heavy metal music, drug culture, fantasy role-playing games, cruelty, mass murders, criminality, the ‘new religions’ and upsurge in overt Satanism in American culture have certain social and spiritual ties that bind them together, revealing that they are part of a similar dark spiritual genus enabled by mystification of the most corrupt passions and secular values:

Satanism is but the spiritual Frankenstein created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God.” (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West — Part 6, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

America's spiritual Frankenstein bears a striking similarity to the pre-flood Frankenstein of Noah's time:

"Barbarism is that which prevailed from the days of Adam down through ten generations to the time of Noah. It is called barbarism because of the fact that in those times men had no ruling authority or mutual accord, but every man was independent and a law unto himself after the dictates of his own will." (John of Damascus, "The Fount of Knowledge," cited in Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 131)

Sauron’s Kingdom of Darkness has slowly crept into and changed all things in the West and America.  Within its' living shadow barbarians situated within our government, media, entertainment, military, law enforcement, academia, and compromised church work their destructive magic while fell beasts and shapes of dread openly hunt the spiritually blind in the shadowy glades of the American Mirkwood.  

Please pray that our Lord will cleanse, revive and fortify His church and build up a force for spiritual and cultural resistance and renewal.   America desperately needs an army of courageous, selfless Hobbits: faithful male and female truth-warriors who will stand and fight the forces of darkness for both the soul of America and individual souls, who with  eyes wide-shut are blind to the infernal darkness closing in on them.

New Age Spirituality, Carl Jung, Abraxas, and Baphomet

It is no exaggeration to say that the highly respected psychologist, Dr. Carl Jung, is the Father of Neo-Gnosticism and the New Age movement, which is why Dr. Jeffrey Satinover comments that, 

"One of the most powerful modern forms of Gnosticism is without question Jungian psychology, both within or without the Church". (Satinover, The Empty Self, p. 27)   

 This being the case and because of his great influence in propagating gnostic philosophy and morals in churches and synagogues,  

"...Jung deserves a closer look.  The moral relativism that released upon us the sexual revolution is rooted in an outlook of which (Jung) is the most brilliant contemporary expositor." Jung "blended psychological reductionism with gnostic spirituality to produce a modern variant of mystical, pagan polytheism in which the multiple ‘images of the instincts’ (his ‘archetypes’) are worshipped as gods." (Satinover, Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth, p. 238)   

 Though many Christians mistakenly embrace Carl Jung the truth is that he rejected Jesus Christ in favor of the gnostic god Abraxas. Like all Gnostic magicians ancient and modern, Jung sought to combine good with evil and male with female, thus for Jung it was regrettable that Christ in his goodness and maleness lacked a shadowy feminized side, and God the Father, who is the Light, lacked darkness. 

In his 1916 book, "The Seven Sermons to the Dead," the heavily demonized Jung, whose familiar spirit Philemon appeared to him as an old man with the horns of a bull and the wings of a fisher, called Abraxas a god higher than the Christian God  that combines all opposites into one Being. He said that Abraxas is a polymorphous world spirit, a coiled knot of winged serpents which permeates the very fabric of existence.  

 Two primary characteristics of ancient and modern pagan Gnostic ideology revolve around two ideas.  The first is that this world is a horrible mistake.  The world and our bodies are places of suffering and evil that should never have existed.  The second is that the Creator God of Scripture is the malevolent being responsible for both this evil world and our evil bodies while the winged serpent Satan is the enlightener and liberator of man. 

 Abraxas comes from ancient Egypt and Greece and is associated with the earliest beginnings of Gnosticism, which according to the Jewish Encyclopedia originated in ancient Chaldea with the Jews during their Babylonian exile.  It was then that certain Jews invented the mystical Babylonian Kabbalah which they modeled on the Babylonian Mystery Religion, the mother of all mystery religions throughout the history of the world.   According to modern occult Mason Albert Pike, 

"The Kabbalah is the key to the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists." (Morals and Dogma, p. 626) 

 The Gnostic Holy Book of the Great Invisible Spirit teaches that Abraxas is an Aeon dwelling with other Aeons of the Pleroma.   Pleroma generally refers to the totality of divine powers contained within and emanating (evolving) as energies from the Realm of Light (Ein Sof of the Kabbalah).   

 In  "The Dictionary of Mind and Spirit" (1991), we learn that for the second-century Alexandrian Gnostic Basilides, Abraxas was the Supreme Being or Realm of Light from which emanated the following energies: Mind, Understanding, Wisdom, Power and a whole succession of powers, principalities and Aeons.  Basilides believed there were 365 Aeons, all of them personifications of the energies emanating from the Supreme Being.  The first of these Aeons was Christ, or Nous.    

 According to ancient Gnostic texts, Abraxas is the astral serpent (Satan) on the tree who gives the illumination of both good and evil to Adam and Eve whose eyes were then opened. The powerful occult symbol, the Oroboros (snake biting its' tail), signifies Abraxas, the king worm who rules this world. Abraxas is the maker of good and evil rolled into one persona described by the  Gnostic Basilides as "the greatest God" (De vir. ill. 21), "the highest God" (Dial. adv. Lucif. 23), "the Almighty God" (Comm. in Amos iii. 9), and "the Lord the Creator" (Comm. in Nah. i. 11). 

In modern Gnostic accounts such as the popular movie "The Matrix," Abraxas is the Cosmic Mind, a mysterious Divine One Substance, an "immeasurable light which is pure, holy and immaculate." (Apocryphon of John)  On the other hand, the Holy Trinity is represented by the evil Machine Overlords.  (Wake up! Gnosticism and Buddhism in The Matrix, Frances Flannery-Daily and Rachel Wagner, Journal of Religion and Film) 

 Gnostic accounts generally demote the Holy Trinity to one of the lesser Aeons and portray Him as an evil, malformed, ignorant deity sometimes called Yaldabaoth who mistakenly believes he is the only god.  Although traditions vary, Yaldabaoth is said to have breathed the divine spark of his mother Sophia (another Aeon)  into the human being (Apoc. of John) resulting in the human dilemma: man is not fallen and in need of a Savior but rather a divine spark trapped by Yaldabaoth in an evil material body in a false world of matter. The astral Pleroma is his true home but he is in exile. 

Rather than Yaldabaoth, modern Gnostic Transhumanists  such as Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association together with like-minded physicists suggest that the Holy Trinity is an evil alien supercomputer. In this account, the world we live in is a computer simulation in the minds of Robotic Overlords who are using humanity as playthings.  This is the "scientific" theory put forward by Bostrom and a number of physicists whose Gnostic account of the evil alien supercomputer is reminiscent of entities depicted in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey: 

 "It is perhaps a ripe coincidence, that the Coptic word for simulation found in Gnostic texts is hal, recalling HAL the rebellious computer in Kubrick's 2001." (3) 

 In Bostroms account, the Holy Trinity is the expression of an ego-driven consciousness, the evil Lord Archon –  a counterfeit spirit (Apoc. John III, 36:17) who has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent human beings from remembering that they are divine spirits whose real home is the Gnostic Pleroma. 

 Celebrated by the Satanic Temple as well as by Masons and Wiccans, the devilish goat-headed Baphomet, known as the phallic god Pan, the ancient hermaphrodite god of nature, is another representation of the Gnostic Abraxas. As Pan, the goat-headed deity is the first principle or essence of nature while in astrology, 

 "...Pan...is also equated with Satan and life...in its base aspects." (J.E. Cirlot, A Dictionary of Symbols, 1971) 

 In a Presentation at Norwood Lodge No. 90 in 1991, Master Mason Eugene Plawiuk revealed the Chaldean pedigree of Baphomet and its close connection to astrology's elemental spirits in 'Liber Capricornus: the Symbolism of the Goat.' Plawiuk explains that the goat is known to all of us through, 

 "....the ancient science of Astrology first developed by the Chaldeans, or as they are commonly known; Babylonians. The Goat symbolizes male fertility (and is represented by) the astrological sign of Capricorn...In fact the...Babylonians who gave us this symbol of Capricorn and the science of Astrology were the first Temple Builders, and the goat for them symbolized the essence of the Temple or Lodge...According to a research monograph on the Dionysian Artificers and Early Masonry edited by Manly P. Hall, the symbolism of the goat relates to the prechristian God Pan, Dionysius. The Goat-God was accepted by the later Greek Mystery Schools as the symbol of the Temple Builders." (Presentation at Norwood Lodge No. 90, A.F. &A.M.G.R.A., Sept. 3, 1991, Masonic World) 

 Today's New Age or what Dr. Peter Jones describes as neo-Gnostic pagan spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Neale Donald Walsh, and many other contemporary mediums (including Carl Jung) some of them occupyingpositions at the UN.  The Lord however, strongly condemns all forms of Spiritism: 

"anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord."   Deuteronomy 18: 10-12

Satan is the great deceiver (Rev. 12:9). He uses his servants of deception to manipulate, confuse, and mislead (Ephesians 4:14), and one of his most important servants, the evangelical apostate Alice Bailey (1880-1949) is a major architect of today's rapidly spreading, morally relative, transgender embracing serpent-powered neo-Gnostic New Age movement, a spiritual juggernaut effecting a counter-conversion of consciousness that closes the soul to Jesus Christ while opening it to powers of darkness. 

According to Bailey's contemporary apostles, a master 'Plan' telepathically revealed to Bailey for the coming New Age millennium can be traced back to the fall of Lucifer and his angels from heaven. Bailey's demon-master, the Tibetan, described the revolt of the angels against the Holy God as part of the "divine plan of evolution," by which angels,  

"descended from their sinless and free state of existence in order to develop full divine awareness on earth." (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 224) 

In this total reversal and inversion of the Revealed Word of God, the Fall of man was really an evolutionary ascent to liberating knowledge by which man's eyes were opened to good (Satan) and evil (the Holy God). Thus Helena Blavatsky, another important servant of Satan and architect of New Age spirituality concluded that it is but natural to view Satan, the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, 

"... the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it was he who was the 'Harbinger of Light,' bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah...Indeed, (mankind) was taught wisdom and the hidden knowledge by the 'Fallen Angel." (ibid, pp. 224-225) 

 As man's benefactor, Lucifer continues to assist man's evolution. In the words of the apostate evangelical, now New Age theologian David Spangler, a disciple of both Blavatsky and Bailey, Lucifer is 'the angel of man's evolution' and all who seek entry to the NWO must submit to the Luciferian initiation. 

 Satan's servants are out in the open today. They have successfully initiated a devastating assault upon the whole body of the Christian church and by extension, upon Western and American society in ways that to previous generations would have seemed unthinkable. 

 Therefore, "Put you on the armor of God that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil." Ephesians 6:11   and remember that ""Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." (1 John 4:4)

Demonic Darkness: Why Godless America is Insane

In "The Body Politic is Queer," Dr. Peter Jones, Director of truthXchange and Adjunct professor of Westminster Seminary CA, writes that the Supreme Court's Obergefell v. Wade decision represents an historic moment for the United States:

"The Declaration of Independence, declaring that rights and laws are endowed by the Creator, has been rendered meaningless by a fake redefining of marriage, with no reference to the Creator or to any objective standards. The charade is over. This decision indicates that what has been happening for some time is finally here for all to see: the USA is clearly a “godless nation.” Let public figures supporting this decision no longer say or sing: “God bless America.” or “Amazing Grace.” It is just as worthless as their view of marriage."  (truthxchange, Jun. 26, 2015)

America is clearly a godless nation, and according to Father Gary Thomas, pastor at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Saratoga, Calif., and the exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose,

When faith becomes thin and Satan and agents of Satan move in, there are going to be effects...” (Does the US Need a Nationwide Exorcism?  Patti Armstrong, ncregister.com, 7/10/15)

One of the primary effects to befall a godless society like America is demonic subjection. According to Dr. Kurt Koch, (1913-1987) a highly respected German minister who pastored, counseled and delivered more than twenty thousand people suffering from demonic subjection in its various forms and manifestations throughout the world, there are many underlying causes of demonic subjection.

 Dr. Koch delineates some of the leading ones:

If a person blatantly lives a life of sin and persistently resists the Spirit of God and remains completely unrepentant, or if a person carries the sin of murder or abortion on his conscience, or has committed perjury or practical incest, if he has cursed his fellow men or blasphemed against the cross or against Christ, the Holy Spirit, or God, then he will have laid himself open to the devil’s attacks.  Every curse is in fact a cry to the devil, and can for this reason lead a person into bondage.” (Occult Bondage, 138)

Demonic subjection will also befall those who persistently engage in one of America's vastly popular past times: psycho-spiritual techniques such as channeling, tantric yoga, Kundalini yoga, centering techniques, visualizing/dreaming, positive imaging, trance music, brain-altering drugs, heavy metal and drugs, necromancy, magic, and witchcraft.  The same danger pertains to use of occult devices such as Ouija and Enneagram together with any of the other occultisms spreading like wildfire over America and into the whole body of the sleeping Christian Church.

One of the first things to become subject to demonic influence is a person’s thoughts and feelings:

This often results in a complete attitude of indifference to any spiritual influence, and to an open rejection of any belief in God.  The Word of God loses its power to speak, and God’s promises become meaningless.  The person finds he can only entertain evil thoughts in his mind and ideas which are opposed to God.  He is gripped with a passion for lying and impure thoughts.  Indeed, the desire to lie so fills him that he does so unconsciously. In spite of feeling no remorse for his sins, he will be plagued with a continuous feeling of restlessness, with a lack of peace, and depressive moods.”  (Occult Bondage, p. 140)

In the following examples, Dr. Koch outlines some other conditions denoting demonic subjection that with every day becomes increasingly descriptive of American culture:

1.Warped, distorted character; narcissism, hard egoism, uncongenial dark nature

2. Extreme passions; abnormal sexuality, violent temper, fits of rage, belligerence, tendencies to addiction, meanness, kleptomania

3. Compulsive thoughts of suicide and murder; anxiety states, persecution complexes

4. Demonic possession: confusion, delusion; destructive, murderous urges; fits of mania, tendency to violence, inhabitation by demons, conscious atheism, simulated piety, blasphemous thoughts, words and acts and bigoted attitude against Christ and God. (Occult ABC, Koch, pp. 266-282)

In "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," (1992) Malachi Martin presents five cases of possession expressing important elements and basic attitudes characterizing the demonic subjection and possession overtaking America’s godless postmodern society. In the possessed person these elements and attitudes are pushed to a very narrow and frightening extreme. Martin summarizes these elements and attitudes in the following points:

1.Moral imbecility: All sense suddenly seems like nonsense; nothing is ever right.  For example:

"Fresh off the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage, Democrats in California have introduced a bill that would ban the words “husband” and “wife” from being used in federal law because they are “gendered terms” and discriminate against gay people."  (redrocktribune.com, July 10, 2015)

"New Bible Translation “Queen James Bible” Eliminates “Homosexuality As Sin” Because It Insults Gays"  (conservativepost.com)

"The Queen James Bible, also known as the Gay Bible, is a new assault on biblical orthodoxy and sexual purity."  (CARM, Matt Slick) 

2. Hopelessness, death and suicide confirmed as the only hope

3. Death, cruelty and contempt are normal:

"Gay Man Files $70M Suit Against Bible Publishers Over ‘Homosexual’ Verses" (TPNN, July 10, 2015) 

4. Moral relativism and/or subjectivism: the depraved insistence that there is no essential difference between good and evil; male and female; all 'truth' and 'moral' values are subject to one's personal preference.  Scientifically enlightened America is drowning in subjectivism:

"En-darkened" modernists claim scientific neutrality as a general operating assumption. Two applications of modernist thought evidence this: evolution (anti-creation account/relentless change/relativism), an inverted exegesis that deconstructs and reduces man in the spiritual image of the Trinity to evolved ape, and deconstructionism (destructive criticism/critical theory). Along with evolution, deconstructionism is a form of relativism or nihilism that for more than eighty years has been spilling into and contaminating our moral and culture sustaining institutions from seminaries and Biblical scholarship to academia, law, media, arts, and politics, thence our minds, individually and collectively." (Scientific neutrality, biblical deconstruction and modernist Christians in a man-centered universe, Linda Kimball, Renew America, May 19, 2015) 

5. Empiricism: The supernatural and miraculous must be resolved in 'natural' or rational and empirically verifiable scientific explanations

6. Naturalism: There can be no relevance for the modern person in anything that cannot be rationally understood and no 'truth' important beyond what is this-worldly or natural.

7. Androgyny: There are multiple and ever-expanding 'genders' and expressions of 'love'

8. Fatal confusion between spirit (mind, will) and psyche (soul). Of this Martin said, "If everything (of) spirit can be made to seem a product merely of human psyche...then love can be made to seem only a chemical interaction, and love's paradigm is killed."

9. Confusion: One basic note of possession is confusion of truth with lie, good with evil, supernatural with natural. Confusion, or satanic inversion, is a primary weapon of evil said Martin.

In "Three Characteristics of the Diabolical, and how they are Manifest in the Modern World," Msgr. Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington provides three more elements and attitudes characteristic of demonic subjection in our God-less society:

1. Love of Nudity:

"This is clearly manifest at several levels. First there is the widespread tendency of immodest dress..."fashions" (that) reveal more than is reasonable and generally have, as their intent to draw attention to aspects of the body that are private and reserved for sexual union in marriage. Too many in our culture see little problem parading about in various stages of undress, wearing clothing that are more intended to disclose and call attention to, than to conceal the private areas of the body. This love of disclosure and titillation is surely an aspect of the Evil One's love of nudity, and he has surely spread his obsession to many in the modern West".

2. Pornography: 

 "Though nothing new in this fallen world, has surely reached epidemic proportions via the Internet. Any psychotherapist, counselor or priest will tell you that addiction to pornography is a huge problem among people today. Pornographic sites on the Internet outpace all others tenfold. Multimillion Americans are viewing enormous amounts of pornography and the "industry" is growing exponentially. What was once hidden away in adult bookstores is now one click away on the Internet. And the thought that browsing habits are easily discoverable matters little to the addicts of this latest form of slavery. Many are on a steep slope downward into ever more deviant forms of porn. Many end up at illegal sites before they even know what has happened to them, and the FBI is knocking on their door. Satan's love of nudity has possessed many!"

3. The overall sexualization of culture also ties in to Satan's love of nudity: 

 "We sexualize women to sell products. We even sexualize children. Our sitcoms chatter endlessly about sex in a very teenage and immature sort of way. We are, collectively, goofy and immature about sex, and our culture giggles like horny teenagers obsessed with something we don't really understand. Yes, Satan loves nudity, and everything that goes with it."

4.  Confusion or satanic inversion is a prime weapon of evil:

"And then of course there is the utter confusion that celebrates homosexual activity. What Scripture calls gravely sinful, disordered, and contrary to nature (= ðáñὰ öýóéí – para physin – Rom 1:26) many in our culture now openly celebrate. And those afflicted as such, openly identify themselves with what tempts them:

"Under another housing option, Wesleyan’s Office of Residential Life invites gender-confused students who identify themselves under the umbrella of one or more of the 15 alternative sexualities to join a house embracing everyone but heterosexuals. This campus residence is called “Open House,” which welcomes each of the 15 groups represented by the acrostic “LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM.” For those not in-tune with many of the invented “gender identities,” LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM individuals represent the following groups (in order): lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, flexual, asexual, genderf***, polyamorous, bondage/disciple, dominance/submission, and sadism/masochism." (Wesleyan Univ. pulls men-only frats, pushes housing for 15 ‘sexualities,' Michael F. Haverluck, OneNewsNow.com,  Friday, February 27, 2015)  

"Rather than lament the difficulty and trial of such affliction and offer love, support and truth that they may live celibately, (as all the unmarried are called to do), our sex saturated culture, blinded and darkened by its own wild lust, affirms and encourages them to indulge what can only bring further harm to them, and others, for it is of the darkness and contrary to nature. They have exchanged the truth of God for a lie... Romans 1:25"   (blog.adw.org, Apr. 8, 2013)

Homosexual activity is of the darkness, yet while our White House and increasing numbers of Americans tolerate and celebrate it, our children, military, and society in particular are paying the price:

It appears that the DOD has serious problemswith male-on-male sexual assaults that men are not reporting and the Pentagon doesn’t want to talk about,” said ElaineDonnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness. She noted that only 2 percent of assailants are women." (Victims of sex assaults in military are mostly men, Rowan Scarborough, washingtontimes.com, May 20, 2013)

"Forcible sodomy of men and rape of women is certainly causally connected to completed and attempted suicides. Yet, despite the high rates of male and female rape and forcible sodomy, the CDP report dodges the prominent role of both sexual abuse and pornography - that is, how-to sex abuse manuals and videos - in fueling the lust and contempt that spawns both offender sexual abuse and victim suicidal ideation."

"The Little Black Book - Queer in the 21st Century," an extremely depraved and disgusting "how-to" booklet "was distributed to hundreds of kids (middle school age and up) at Brookline High School, Brookline, MA, on April 30, 2005. It was written by the Boston-based AIDS Action Committee, with help  from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Boston Public Health Commission. The event that day was designed for children and their teachers across Massachusetts, organized by the "Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network" (GLSEN).  This is the group that runs "Gay-Straight Alliance" clubs in public schools across the country. You must ask yourself: What kind of person would write this? What kind of person would give it to kids?"  (massresistance.org)     

According to ancient Rabbinical literature, God finally destroyed the demonically subjected pre-flood world when evil had come to its fullness with men marrying other men and animals, and women marrying other women.  Now God is Judging our godless, sexual dystopia.  Thus our increasingly insane, lawless, pornographic, homo-sexualized, disunited, satanically inverted sexual dystopia has passed into a state of confusion and stupefaction as it implodes under the powerfully destructive effects of demonic subjection at every level of society.

Hellish Beings, NDEs and UFO Encounters: The Spirit World Moving Closer to Our Own

"I was confronted by a red light, exceedingly bright...I was aware that this light was responsible for the government of the universe." ("What I Saw When I was Dead," atheist A.J. Ayer)

"Whenever I stopped pushing on his chest in order to adjust the pacemaker, the heart would stop and Charlie's eyes would roll up. He again would sputter, turn blue and begin to convulse. I reached over and started him up again. But this time, he was screaming the words, "Don't stop! I'm in hell! I'm in hell!" (To Hell and Back,  Maurice Rawlings, M.D.)

In his bestseller, "Life After Death: The Evidence," author Dinesh D'Souza presents a logically reasoned, scientifically based case that the evidence for life after death greatly outweighs atheistic claims to the contrary. D'Souza notes that throughout the world today Near Death Experiences (NDEs) are acknowledged to be a global phenomenon that provide strong support for life after death. Indeed said D'Souza,a 2005 survey of American doctors,

"...showed that 59 percent now believe in some form of afterlife, a much higher percentage than is found in other scientific professions. Possibly their encounter with patients who have had near death experiences is partly responsible for this. I doubt they learned it in medical school." (pp. 64-65)

It isn't just NDEs that have revived interest in unseen intelligences and the afterlife but increasing cases of possession and UFO encounters with beings calling themselves Space Brothers, Council of Nine, Semjase and Ashtar.

World-renowned UFOlogist and archaeologist Dr. Clifford Wilson is but one of many researchers who have pointed out how an entity calling itself "Ashtar" keeps popping up in UFO accounts.   Apart from Semjase (Samlazaz, Semjaza), who has been posing as a modern space-brother, Ashtar keeps appearing in UFO literature as well as ancient texts.  John Keel, one of the world's most published and highly respected UFOlogists also noted this.   Highlighting the element of deception he wrote:
 
"Thousands of mediums, psychics, and UFO contactees have been receiving mountains of messages from "Ashtar" in recent years.... Ashtar is not a new arrival.    Variations of this name, such as Astaroth, Ashar, Asharoth, etc. appear in demonological literature throughout history, both in the Orient and Occident.   Mr. Ashtar had been around a very long time, posing as assorted gods and demons and now, in the modern phase, as another glorious spaceman."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 290)

In ancient Babylon, Astoreth (Inanna, Ashtar, Ishtar, Istar, Semiramis, Milcom, Cybele, Astarte, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite) was the androgynous consort of Anu, the supreme sky god.  

According to Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their devotion to Istar,

“... who herself had ‘transformed their masculinity into femininity.'”  (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Jones, truthxchange)

Who are Semjaza and Ashtar/Istar?

According to ANE Scholar Dr. Michael Heiser, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University, Semjaza and Ashtar are fallen, wicked Watchers, serpentine Seraphim,

"There are "good" serpentine beings (seraphim) who guard God's throne (so Isaiah 6's seraphim), and there are fallen, wicked serpentine beings (seraphim) who rebelled against the Most High at various times, and who became the pagan gods of the other nations."   (Michael Heiser, "Serpentine/Reptillian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

Ex-evolutionist turned young earth creationist, Dr. Gary Bates turned to the Book of Enoch for identification of Semjaza.  Not only does the Book of Jude 14-15 refer to the book of Enoch but is an exact rendering of Enoch, chapter 1:9.   Moreover, Enoch 6-7 identifies Semjaza as a ringleader of the 200 Watchers who descended Mount Hermon in the pre-flood world:

"Come, let us choose wives from among the children of men and beget us children."  And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: "I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin."  And they all answered him and said: "Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations upon it.  And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon....And these are the names of their leaders: Samlazaz (Shemihazah)... Araklba, Rameel, Kokablel, Tamlel, Ramlel, Danel, Ezeqeel, Baraqijal, Asael (Azazel), Armaros, Batarel, Ananel, Zaqlel, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Jomjael, Sariel."  (Alien Intrusion, Bates, p. 398)

The Watchers taught men forbidden knowledge such as enchantments, sorcery, incantations, the science of magic transformism (change or evolution of one kind into another kind), astrology, science of constellations, and the smiting of the embryo in the womb (abortion), that it may pass away.  They also taught men how  to make weapons of war.  

The Spirit World Moving Closer

"Sorry, but your soul just died." (naturalist Tom Wolfe, cited in The Spiritual Brain: A Neuroscientist's Case for the Existence of the Soul, Beauregard and O'Leary, p. 4)

With breathtaking speed, Americans led into forgetfulness of their own souls are emerging from a cocoon of spiritual deadness induced by scientific materialism and evolution into a frightening occult spiritual reality including NDEs and evil spirits long known about by ancient pagans and early Christians.  

With regard to the state of the soul upon the death of its' body, as well as its state during Near Death Experiences and out-of-body-experiences attained by way of certain drugs, transcendental meditation or other psycho-spiritual techniques early Church Father St. Augustine taught that when a soul separates itself from its' body,

"the man himself who is in such a state, though it be in spirit only, not in body, yet sees himself so like to his own body that he cannot discern any difference whatever." (City of God, Book XXI, 10)

In his treatise, "The Divination of Demons" Augustine explains why men, when "in body" are unable to perceive demons and angels:

"The nature of demons is such that, though the sense perception belonging to the aerial body, (spirits) readily surpass the perception possessed by earthly bodies, and in speed too, because of the superior mobility of the aerial body, they incomparably excel not only the movements of men and of beasts but even the flight of birds. Endowed with these two faculties (keenness of perception and speed of movement) they foretell and declare many things that they have recognized far in advance. At this, because of the sluggishness of earthly perception, men wonder." Because evil spirits have existed from the beginning they, "have gained a far greater experience in events than accrues to men because of the brief span of their lives."  Thus, "demons not only foretell many things that will occur, but also perform many miraculous acts." (Chapter 3, Divination of Demons)

Though men cannot perceive evil spirits, they are there, said Church Father Cassian in his "Conferences." According to Cassian:

"Such a multitude of evil spirits fills this air which is spread out between heaven and earth and in which they fly in disturbance and not idly, that the Divine Providence for our benefit has hidden and removed them from the gaze of men; otherwise, from fear of their attack, or of the frightful spectacle of the faces into which they are transformed and changed by their own will...men would be struck with unbearable terror and ready for collapse..." (The Soul After Death, Fr. Seraphim Rose, pp. 29-30)

It is during "out of body experiences" that the soul of man can fully perceive aerial spirits. The most commonly reported encounters are with a wonderful being of light experienced as some kind of personal being filled with warmth and love to whom the out-of-body soul is drawn by a kind of magnetic attraction. Often the experience includes many other apparitions, including other people. Church Father Gregory the Great describes these encounters in his Dialogues:

"It frequently happens that a soul on the point of death recognizes those with whom it is to share the same eternal dwelling for equal blame or reward."   To the righteous, "it often happens that the saints of heaven appear (and) with the vision of the heavenly company before their minds, they die without experiencing any fear or agony." (Dialogues, IV, 12)

In his book on the Holy Spirit, Church Father Basil the Great states the heavenly powers only appear,

 "...to those who are worthy, in the form of their own bodies." (Works of St. Basil, cited in The Soul After Death, p. 23)

Jesus Christ Himself affirms that to the worthy appear the heavenly powers:

"And it came to pass that the begger died, and that he was carried away by the angels into Abraham's bosom." Luke 16:22

There is nothing vague about the heavenly powers. They do not appear as "beings of light" but rather have a human appearance. By contrast, the being of light frequently encountered during out-of-body-experiences and NDEs has no visible form and does not conduct the soul anywhere. The being of light merely engages the soul in dialogue and shows flashbacks of one's past life. But then Satan can in fact fashion himself into an angel of light. (II Cor. 11:14)

In his 1975 book, "Life After Death," Dr. Raymond Moody reported on 150 cases of people who experienced NDEs. What made these cases incredible was that most of these people had similar if not virtually identical experiences. With regard to the being of light Dr. Moody and other investigators wondered if it was an evil spirit but then dismissed the possibility because it was not in harmony with the wonderful results the apparition produces.

Ex-atheist Dr. Maurice Rawlings, a cardiologist, resuscitated many people who had been clinically dead. After accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, Rawlings dismissed Moody's contention on the basis of his own terrifying experiences with some of his patients.  These frightening experiences taught him that contrary to the most-published accounts of NDE encounters with a being filled with warmth and love,  some NDE's are absolutely terrifying. In these hellish encounters, the out-of-body soul meets with grotesque beings,

"....who may be lurking in the shadows or along a burning lake of fire. The horrors defy description..." Even some "regular church members" have been shocked to find themselves experiencing hellish, "manifestations of imps and grotesque giants, of a descent into blackness and a fiery heat, of a pit and an ocean of fire." (Beyond Death's Door, Rawlings, pp. 63-64, 103-110)

 German actor Curt Jürgen's experienced a horrifying feeling that life was ebbing away from him.  After this he felt powerful sensations of dread as everything suddenly turned a glowing red.  Then he saw twisted faces grimacing as they stared down at him.  He tried to defend himself but,

"... could no longer shut out the frightful truth: beyond the faces dominating this fiery world were faces of the damned. I had a feeling of despair....the sensation of horror was so great it choked me. Obviously I was in Hell itself (and then suddenly) the black silhouette of a human figure began to draw near...a woman...with lipless mouth and in her eyes an expression that sent icy shudders down my back. She stretched out her arms...and pulled me by an irresistible force (into) a world filled with....sounds of lamentation....I asked the figure...who she was. A voice answered: "I am death." (German actor Curt Jürgen's, To Hell and Back, pp. 76-77)

Dr.  Rawlings was convinced that upon death all humans either enter heaven or hell. In a video hosted by Rawlings, he investigates life after death and his experiences with patients that actually saw 'the other side':

Dr. Carl Raschke is an internationally known writer and academic who for the past decade has been researching and explaining the effects of postmodern Christianity and its global significance. He notes with alarm America's downward spiral into the madness of demonic spirituality. He points out that the decadence, pornography, mass murders, criminality, the 'new religions,' and Satanism in American culture have certain social and spiritual ties that bind them together, revealing that they are part of a similar spiritual genus. In "Satanism and the Devolution of the 'New Religions,' Raschke notes that Satanism is so widespread today that there are even U.S. military personnel who are members of secretive Satanist groups.

Raschke concludes that the post-Christian West is experiencing an upsurge in satanic manifestations because it is a social order attempting to " sustain itself without God." (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West, Part 6, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)

Unless we are mistaken...the twentieth century...is to witness a gigantic conflict of spirits...More serious and fiercer than ever before, the conflict is between the old and the new worldview." Herman Bavinck, Christian theologian, 1901

It is only within the context of Western and American apostasy into will-to-power, science as the only acceptable knowledge, relativism, pagan evolutionary idolatry and postmodernism that today's dramatic increase in satanic spirituality and worldly encounters can be understood and it is Church Father Gregory the Great who makes clear just what is going on and why. After describing various visions and after death experiences in his Dialogues, Gregory remarks,

"the spiritual world is moving closer to us, manifesting itself through visions and revelations...As the present world approaches its end, the world of eternity looms nearer..."

Gregory adds that through these visions and revelations, which in our own time are much more common and widespread than they were in his, we see the truths of the future life imperfectly because the light is still "dim and pale, like the light of the sun in the early hours of the day just before dawn."

In other words, during Gregory's time mankind was being provided clear proof that the Holy Triune God exists as does the supernatural realm, holy angels, demons, and hell  and that life does not end with the death of the body. Moreover, there really is an eternal soul that survives the death of its' body and is in fact more conscious and alive after it is released from its' body.

At no time in the history of mankind has possession, UFO encounters, NDEs and other 'out-of-body-experiences' been a worldwide phenomenon such that secular investigators have taken notice. Gregory saw that the spiritual realm was even then approaching. The marked increase of such phenomena in our own time is a sign of its extreme nearness and therefore signals the approaching end of this world.

The 20th Century: Beginning of the Aeon of Horus, Reign of God-Men, and End of the Christian God

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites...We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end... The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?”   O’Brien, in 1984, by George Orwell

The symbol of the Party or Big Brother is the pagan magician, a demonized man-god who has acquired powerful psychic powers and gnosis through actualization of the cosmic World Soul within his own brain.  Thus he creates his own world and meaning in every living moment out of his own divine consciousness.   In other words, since the substance of God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos including the unconscious mind of man, then by means of self-induced trance states, brain-altering drugs, transcendental meditation and other Magic Ways, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls matter because he controls mind. The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man.

This way of thinking is captured by Orwell in his book, "Nineteen Eighty-Four" in which negation of the physical world is an integral part of the social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his tyrannical Party.  At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that in the end the Party would announce that two and two made five and,

"...you would have to believe it.  It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later; the logic of their position demanded it.  Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy." ("The New Spirituality and its Hallmarks, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 30:4-31:1, 2007, p. 19)

God-men are legion today. They have successfully initiated a devastating assault upon the whole body of the Christian church and by extension, upon Western and American society in ways that to previous generations would have seemed unthinkable.      A few examples of Western and Eastern god-men are Auguste Comte, Nietzsche, Karl Marx, sundry Indian god-men (i.e., Rajneesh. Muktananda, Sri Chinmoy), Teilhard de Chardin,  L. Ron Hubbard and Aleisiter Crowley .  Each god-man either established a natural religion of scientism (Comte), scientific Communism (Marx), scientific and evolutionary "New Christianity" (Teilhard) or powerful cults that have drawn and continue to draw souls to their doom since each demonized god-man is a harvester of souls for the kingdom of the Evil One.  

Aleister Crowley: Founder of Thelema

Thelema is an Eastern influenced occult spiritual philosophy of pantheist monism developed by Crowley,  a 20th century British writer, ceremonial magician and Satanist.  Pantheist monism asserts the divine-human link:

 "All is ultimately One.  This doctrine is fundamental to mysticism, both eastern and western.  God, man, and the universe are fundamentally one.  The Creator-creature distinction, so crucial to orthodox Judaism and Christianity, is specifically denied.  The so-called 'spark of divinity' in each man supposedly leads all men back into oneness with God (the Universal Force)....The body, the mind, the soul are one within the physical forces...In each entity there is that portion which is a part of the Universal Force...God is impersonal; only man is truly personal.  This is (a) central theme of monist systems.  Man is the personal agent of the impersonal God."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 207)  
 
Within the system of pagan and pantheist monism, God is an evolutionary Force or Energy to be managed, a power to be tapped by initiates and enlightened god-men.  This impersonal Force that supposedly drives the universe's evolutionary destiny was referred to centuries ago in the European magical tradition as the divine Mens, or Mind.  It was cosmic in scope and through careful study and practice (occult or magic science) the magician could control and channel its' power.   The ultimate goal was to acquire powerful psychic powers and gnosis through recreation or actualization of the cosmic Mens within the human mind. (1)
 
In the main, Thelema is based upon a spiritual encounter that Crowley and his wife had in Egypt in 1904 with a spirit calling itself Aiwass.  According to Crowley, Aiwass contacted him and dictated a text known as The Book of the Law or Liber AL vel Legis, which outlined the principles of Thelema.
 
The Thelemic pantheon focuses primarily on a trinity of horned deities adapted from ancient Egyptian pantheist monism who are the three speakers of The Book of the Law: Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The three speakers predicted that the 20th century would mark the ending of the Christian God and Christian theism and the beginning of the Aeon of Horus, an age of apostasy into pantheist monism, creative destruction, force and fire wrought by demonized god-men and their masses of disciples--- a self-absorbed, destructive generation, the followers of a new ethical code, an anti-morality summed up as, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law."  
 
In "Our Savage God: The Perverse Use of Eastern Thought," R.C. Zaehner, Spalding professor of comparative religion of Oxford, discusses the monistic (collectivist/oneness) goals of Hinduism and Buddhism and how the Satanist Aleister Crowley applied monistic philosophy to his own ends.  Crowley, said Zaehner, belonged to an age-old monistic tradition which saw the Eternal (Supreme Soul, Void, Abyss, Quantum Vacuum) as the ultimate unity in which all opposites were reconciled, including God with man, man with woman, woman with man, good with evil. (2)
 
Zaehner also discusses Crowley's attainment of Buddhist "enlightenment," the results of which were "revised" by his spirit guide "Aiwass."   Having assisted Crowley to go beyond good and evil, Aiwass now taught him indulgence.   Aiwass, Crowley's "Holy Guardian Angel," taught "him that absolute bliss could only be attained by enjoying the good things of this world to the full---riches, power, and above all sex, the earthly counterpart of the transcendent union of the opposite." (ibid)
 
As a result, Crowley partook of tantric kundalini sex-magic rites ostensibly for "spiritual" ends.  His "Ordo Templi Orientalis" (Order of the Oriental Temple or O.T.O.) became a branch of Western Tantra.  Indeed, Crowley seems to have been the principal agent responsible for introducing the perversion of Eastern sex magic to the West.  In a text entitled "Yoga: Immortality and Freedom," the yoga authority and University of Chicago professor Mircea Eliade discusses the amoral orientation of Tantra:
 
"The tantric texts frequently repeat the saying, "By the same acts that cause some men to burn in hell....the yogin gains his eternal salvation."....This...is the foundation stone of the Yoga expounded by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita (XVIII, 17).  "He who has no feeling of egoism, and whose mind is not tainted, even though he kills (all) these people, kills not, is not fettered (by the action)."  "And the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad (V,14, 8) had already said: "One who knows this, although he commits very much evil, consumes it all and becomes clean and pure, ageless and immortal."  (ibid, p. 112) 
 
 In addition to his spirit-guide Aiwass, another important mentor of Crowley's was Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher who declared the death of the Christian God and called himself the Anti-Christ:
 
"The greatest recent event – that 'God is dead,' that the belief in the Christian God has ceased to be believable – is even now beginning to cast its first shadows over Europe; however, few really understood " what has really happened here, "and what must collapse now that this belief has been undermined – all that was built upon it, leaned on it, grew into it; for example, our whole European morality." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 433) 
 
Nietzsche argued for the nonexistence of the Christian God as follows:
 
"I will now disprove the existence of all gods. If there were gods, how could I bear not to be a god? Consequently, there are no gods." (3)
 
Each major book of Nietzsche's is, in a different way, an attack on the Christian God and Christian faith. The central axis of Nietzsche's philosophy is always the same---he is as centered on Jesus Christ as Augustine was, only he centered on Christ as his enemy. 
 
With "Ecce Homo" Nietzsche willingly embraces lies and dark fantasy while in "The Genealogy of Morals" he claims that Biblical morality was invented by the "weak," meaning the Jews and then the Christians, to weaken the strong. Thus sheep convinced wolves to act like sheep, and this is unnatural, argued the Anti-Christ who embraced lies and dark fantasy such as "‘Whoever must be a creator always annihilates’ (4)
 
Creation and destruction are as inseparable to Aiwass as to Nietzsche's spirit guide Zarathustra: the creator must always destroy. Thus it follows that a new world order is always preceded by the destruction of the old, hated order:

"The man who breaks… tables of values, the breaker, the lawbreaker; …he is the creator."(Nietzsche)
 
One of the central ideas taught by Zarathustra is that since ‘self’ is self-evolved then Zarathustra's disciple must take responsibility for who he is, for creating himself and his own laws. The implication of this idea is that the old ‘self’ must be destroyed in order to make way for the new ‘self’:

You must wish to consume yourself in your own flame: how could you wish to become new unless you had first become ashes!’ (Nietzsche)
 
The aftermath of the destruction of "self" is insanity (demonization) followed by possession. This is experienced by power yogis when kundalini current finally reaches full voltage with the result that the so-called Soul of the Universe supposedly occupies the body but is in fact an ancient evil spirit residing in the body of the 'god-man:'

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity.  The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)."   Finally it happened---Explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated.  Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels."   "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..."   (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45) 
 
In "Beyond Good and Evil" the Anti-Christ presents his "Master morality," the anti-morality summarized by Crowley as "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." What this means is that since demonized God-hating liars have conceptually "murdered" the Holy Triune God and sealed up heaven, Masters have a natural right to do whatever they please, for everything is permissible. Whatever a Master commands becomes good from the mere fact that the Master wills it:

"Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”   ('Paedophilia is natural and normal for males,' Andrew Gilligan, telegraph.co.uk, Jul 2014)
 
"The Twilight of the Idols" explores the consequences of the murder of the Christian God. With His death is liberation from the supernatural Mind, Authority and Will that has transcended the mind and will of man who is now god and decrees the death of eternally existing Truth, Moral Absolutes, sin and agape love. With the murder of the Triune God, there will no longer be a heaven for the sheep since all of these "idols" will die now that loveless men have murdered the Holy God the Father Almighty.
 
Who will replace the murdered Triune God? The demonized Superman, the new Master of the Universe. Nietzsche's masterpiece, "Thus Spake Zarathustra," celebrates this new god. Nietzsche called Zarathustra the new anti-Gospel and told the world to "throw away all other books; you have my Zarathustra."
 
Among contemporary intelligentsia and global 'god-men' (trans-humanists and practitioners of the Magic Way) intent upon ushering in a worldwide Scientific Dictatorship, a sustainable green pagan heaven on earth created by Masters for Masters, two of the most widely-read and acclaimed thinkers today are the sadistic murderer, the Marquis de Sade, and Friedrich Nietzsche, the Anti-Christ. Many twentieth century totalitarians were disciples of Nietzsche, including America's green Progressive Left and Hitler.
 
In "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," William Shirer recounts Hitler's frequent sojourns to the Nietzsche museum in Weimar. Commenting on Hitler's veneration for Nietzsche, Shirer writes:
 
"There was some ground for this appropriation of Nietzsche as one of the originators of the Nazi Weltanschauung. Had not the philosopher thundered against democracy and parliaments, preached the will to power, praised war and proclaimed the coming of the master race and the superman--and in the most telling aphorisms? (Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, 1959)
 
Though Nietzsche harshly criticized socialism, his evolutionary thinking and monist (collectivist) political and social thoughts also harmonized well with Marxism.
 
In "Nietzsche: A Precursor to Hitler?" researcher Phillip D. Collins writes that in addition to the continuity of pagan political and social thought that pervaded totalitarian socialism, Nietzsche also provided a religious component. The infamous declaration, "God is dead," is but a segue for the introduction of a new Babylonian god merged with mystical Eastern pantheism. This god of evolutionary forces has had, and continues to have, numerous manifestations, as is evidenced by the following delineation by W. Warren Wagar:
 
"Nineteenth-and early twentieth-century thought teems with time-bound emergent deities. Scores of thinkers preached some sort of faith in what is potential in time, in place of the traditional Christian and mystical faith in a power outside of time. Hegel's Weltgeist, Comte's Humanite, Spencer's organismic humanity inevitably improving itself by the laws of evolution, Nietzsche's doctrine of superhumanity, the conception of a finite God given currency by J.S. Mill, Hastings Rashdall, and William James, the vitalism of Bergson and Shaw, the emergent evolutionism of Samuel Alexander and Lloyd Morgan, the theories of divine immanence in the liberal movement in Protestant theology, and du Nouy's telefinalism--all are exhibits in evidence of the influence chiefly of evolutionary thinking, both before and after Darwin, in Western intellectual history. The faith of progress itself--especially the idea of progress as built into the evolutionary scheme of things--is in every way the psychological equivalent of religion. (Wagar, 106 -07)"
 
Nietzsche's self-evolved Superman was but one more link in an ideational chain connecting  Luciferian revolutionaries such as Hegel, Comte, Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Crowley, and contemporary New World Order Masters of the Universe. The central theme is a green religious faith in humanity's evolutionary ascent towards godhood. Collins writes that this is by no means new:
 
"This doctrine of transformism dates back nearly 6,000 years, finding its crucible in Mesopotamia. It was the religious doctrine promulgated by the ancient Babylonian and Egyptian Mystery cults."

Masonic scholar W.L. Wilmshurst verifies this contention:
 
"This--the evolution of man into superman--was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries" (Wilmshurst, W.L. The Meaning of Masonry. New York: Gramercy, 1980)
 
Nietzsche's Superman represents the pinnacle of biological and spiritual evolution. At the apex of the anti-creation, anti-human evolutionary process, Superman would "overcome" his own fleshly humanity---his mortality, his conscience, human weaknesses and limitations. Just as this post-human condition represented godhood for ancient Mystery Religion initiates, so it represents godhood for Nietzsche, Hitler, Crowley, inner circle Masons, contemporary Transhumanists, Spiritual Transhumanists, occult New Agers and their apostate New Christian counterparts who are even now rewriting the Bible so it will reflect evolutionary and pagan thinking.
 
Inherent in this ancient anti-creation, anti-human belief are Nietzsche's Western pagan, Eastern pantheist, and neo-Gnostic teachings that the fall of soul into the material realm was either inexplicable or explained as punishment. At any rate it was a plunge from being as one with or an aspect of the Divine Substance into the material realm of distinctions, or binary. The Fall then is not into sin as a result of disobedience but rather into matter. Salvation means either reabsorption into the Divine Substance or attainment of godhood by way of an evolutionary process controlled by illumined adepts.
 
Nietzsche's version of gnosis resulting from his mystical encounter with Zarathustra, as with Crowley, is the demonic "transvaluation of values" and the enthronement of divinized-self as the final anti-Christ, anti-moral, anti-tradition, authority while earth becomes the divine kingdom of the totalitarian demonized Masters of the Universe.
 
In a larger context, this means that the absolute freedom (license) increasingly exercised by contemporary Western and American god-men and their masses of followers in the name of scientism, evolution, moral relativism, absolute equality, open-minded tolerance and man-made rights (i.e., "gay" marriage, pedophilia) is actually the destructive license which perverts the true meaning and purpose of morally-principled freedom. Absolute freedom enslaves god-men and their followers to their dark side, or sin nature, thus leading them into the anarchy of concupiscence and self-gratification issuing in hate, paranoia, violence, and murder.
 
The 19th century apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky foresaw the devastating consequences of absolute freedom that would usher in planetary spiritual socialism during the age of demonized god-men.
 
Out of the surfeit of arrogant conceit, self-indulgence, violence, hate, envy and murder exacerbated by blasphemy and unbelief said Dostoevsky, will emerge a new man, a miserable man anxious to be saved from himself and the madness of others, hence ready to surrender his absolute freedom for safety, earthly bread, peace, a soothed conscience and a modicum of comfort derived from sin sanctified by his Masters. (Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 179)
 
Demonized god-men and their followers will progress from the tyranny of sin and evil spirits to the tyranny of the Anti-Christ, the psychopath par excellence, for out of the shattered,
 
"... spiritual and social order emerges the new ethic of absolute submission to absolute power." (ibid)
 
And so begins the final chapter of man during the terrible reign of demonized god-men.

Demonic Darkness: America's Invisible Wave of Evil

Today many intellectuals and modern theologians slavishly follow after whatever passes for current trends in scientific and evolutionary theory, thus they believe the Genesis account ex nihilo, the supernatural, the fall, miracles, the Resurrection of Christ, hell, angels, demons and possession are out dated concepts.  Despite this, in 1967 Mortimer J. Adler, the guiding genius behind The Encyclopedia Britannica and Great Books of the Western World, predicted that belief in a spiritual reality would not only return but be considered orthodox science.  His prediction has come true, for today, Eastern-oriented occult pantheism (evolutionary New Age cosmic humanism (1) and esoteric neo-pagan materialism (evolutionary secular humanism) have nearly merged, making it difficult to distinguish one from the other.

Over the past three hundred years, the Western Christian tradition has slowly but steadily been eclipsed, first by scientific evolutionary materialism, now by Eastern-oriented scientific cosmic humanism which has infused and spiritualized the former, transforming it into an agency for the transmission of the naturalistic structure of the evolving universe of matter and psychic energy and other revelations from fallen angels and evil spirits.  This legion of disembodied beings call themselves everything from Transcended Masters to Maitreya, Semjase, the Council of Nine, Space Brothers and ancient Ennead of Egypt together with evil spirits going by such names as god, christ and jesus.  All of this has led Martin Lloyd-Jones to declare:

"The modern world, and especially the history of the present century, can only be understood in terms of the unusual activity of the devil and the "principalities and powers" of darkness...In a world of collapsing institutions, moral chaos, and increasing violence, never was it more important to trace the hand of the "prince of the power of the air."  If we cannot discern the chief cause of our ills, how can we hope to cure them?"  The Christian Warfare

In the space of a few short decades occult New Age spirituality (2) has made profound inroads. Its upsurge manifests itself in the form of everything from obsession with the paranormal, channeling cults, ghost-hunting, necromancy, light-bearers, spirit guides (3), goddess worship, shamanism, transcendental meditation and visualization (4), 'new' contemplative or centering prayer (5), the enneagram (6), labyrinth walking (7), yoga (8), Wicca (9), revitalized Norse paganism, transformational festivals (10), vampires (11), Ouija boards (12), poltergeists (13), the proliferation of 'new' religions and Lucifer as the Angel of Light:

"Medium and psychic Sylvia Browne admits there are dark entities that choose from the beginning to be this way, but she denies the devil. According to Browne, God sent Lucifer down to watch over people when God saw they had chosen "the dark side." According to Browne, "Lucifer is neither dark nor fallen. He wasn't rejected by God or banished from the light."  (The Dark Side: Beyond Good and Evil, Marcia Montenegro, Christian Answers for the New Age)

The hugely popular "new" contemplative or centering prayer (5) is a hybrid drawn from prayer practices of the Christian contemplative heritage fused with Eastern mysticism. The hybrid version, 

"...originated in St Joseph's Abbey, a Trappist monastery in Spencer, Massachusetts. During the twenty years (1961-1981) when Keating was abbot, St Joseph's held dialogues with Buddhist and Hindu representatives, and a Zen master gave a week-long retreat to the monks. A former Trappist monk who had become a Transcendental Meditation teacher also gave a session to the monks. ....Centering prayer is essentially a form of self-hypnosis. It makes use of a "mantra," a word repeated over and over to focus the mind while striving by one's will to go deep within oneself. The effects are a hypnotic-like state..." (The Danger of Centering Prayer, Rev. John D. Dreher, Catholic Education Resource Center) 

In the foreword to Philip St. Romains book, "Kundalini Energy and Christian Spirituality," Keating acknowledges that kundalini energy is the focus of the "new" Christian contemplative prayer. He states:

"Since this energy [kundalini] is also at work today in numerous persons who are devoting themselves to contemplative prayer, this book is an important contribution to the renewal of the Christian contemplative tradition. It will be a great consolation to those who have experienced physical symptoms arising from the awakening of kundalini in the course of their spiritual journey ... Most spiritual disciplines world-wide insist on some kind of serious discipline before techniques of awakening kundalini are communicated. In Christian tradition ... the regular practice of the stages of Christian prayer ... contemplation are the essential disciplines..."  (Kundalini Energy (Serpent Power) Same as Contemplative Silence, lighthousetrailsresearch)   

Psychical researcher J.D. Pearce-Higgins, vice chairman of the Churches Fellowship for Psychical and Spiritual Studies (Great Britain) writes of the hazards of Ouija board (11) use and automatic writing:

"These apparently simple methods of attempting contact...are extremely dangerous. (People will become) obsessed or possessed by some...damaging spirit who has got control of them and won't let go.  They are compelled to go on with automatic writing---at all hours of day and night (and) may begin to hear...voices telling them to do stupid and filthy things; they are no longer master in the house of their own minds and souls."  (The Coming Darkness, John Ankerberg & John Weldon, pp. 129-130)

From England to Australia and New Zealand, from South America to E. Europe, Canada and the United States, occult  spirituality is quickly becoming the West’s dominant orthodoxy, leading America’s mainstream media to report:

Neopaganism Growing Quickly: Numbers Roughly Double Every 18 Months in United States, Canada, and Europe.” (Denver Post, June 26, 2008; How Evil Works, David Kupelian, p. 115)

Sorcery Sells, and the Young are Buying” Atlanta Journal-Constitution, June 10, 2007 (ibid)

“Wicca is Believed to be One of the Fastest-Growing Religions Among High School and College Students” National Public Radio, May 13, 2004 (ibid)

In his book, “America’s Schools: The Battleground for Freedom,” Allen Quist warns:

New Age religion is now aggressively being taught in our nation’s public schools.” A model curriculum has been developed that “is clearly centered on pantheism.” “Much of what passes for environmental education and multiculturalism is really indoctrination in pantheistic/New Age theology. The ACLU and other similar organizations have no objections to (pantheistic indoctrination). It is only Christianity that these organizations object to.” (p. 51)

Today millions of Westerners are risking everything to seek the occult world and its' alluring power.  In “One or Two?" Dr. Peter Jones, Director of truthXchange and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary California writes that a wide variety of occult spirituality is now available.  There is something for everyone:

"A Course in Miracles, Alchemy, American Indian Quest, Ancient Mythology, Arkashic Record, Aryuvedic Medicine, Astrology, Bahai'i Unity, Buddhism, Buddhist/Christian Dialogue, Chakras, Channeling, Christian Monastic Mysticism, Crystals, Divination, Dream work, Druidism, Eastern Meditation, Eckankar (soul travel), Ecofeminism, Enneagram, EST, Feng Shui, Gnosticism (ancient and modern), Goddess worship, Hare Krishna, Hermeticism, Higher Self, Hinduism, Holism, Human Potential Movement, Hypnosis, I Ching, Iridology, Jungian Transpersonal Psychology, Kabbalah, Karma, Mandalas, Mantras, Mind-altering drugs, Parapsychology, Past Life Regressions, Reiki, Re-incarnation, Religious syncretism, Rolfing, Sacred Technologies, Santeria, Scientology, Shamanism, Sufism, T'ai Chi, Tantrism, Tarot Cards, Teilhardism, Therapeutic Touch, Tikkun, Transcendental Meditation, Ufology, Urantia Book, Visualization, Wicca, Yoga, Zen."  (pp. 40-41)

It is well documented that perversions, murder, possession and other evils, including human sacrifice, occur in Western witchcraft, Satanism and Eastern mysticism (e.g., tantric yoga) as well as pagan and pantheist occult religion in general.  In his "Occultism, Witchcraft and Cultural Fashions," the noted cultural anthropologist Mircea Eliade of the University of Chicago refers to the interconnections between European witchcraft and Hindu Tantric yoga.  He argues that

"even a rapid perusal of the Hindu and Tibetan documents" reveals the connection: "As a matter of fact, all the features associated with European witches are---with the exception of Satan and the Sabbath---claimed also by Indo-Tibetan yogis and magicians.  They too are supposed to fly through the air, render themselves invisible, kill at a distance, master demons and ghosts, and so on.  Moreover, some of (them) boast that they break all the religious taboos and social rules; that they practice human sacrifice, cannibalism, and all manner of orgies, including incestuous intercourse, and that they eat excrement, nauseating animals, and devour human corpses.  In other words, they proudly claim all the crimes and horrible ceremonies cited ad nauseum in the western European witch trials."  (Psychic Forces, Chapter 22, "The Occult History of Parapsychology," Clifford Wilson and John Weldon, pp. 341-49)

The very popular Tantra Kundalini yoga is based on the occultic chakra system which teaches that a universal evolutionary energy (Kundalini Shakti, the Supreme Power; serpent power) coiled at the base of the spine flows through human beings and through all of creation, uniting everything above and everything below, thus acknowledging divinity in all things and all people. Through strenuous yoga and other occult techniques outlined in ancient and modern texts, Kundalini Shakti uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the human body.  During so-called kundalini arousal, which may last for months or even years, protracted insanity and/or demonization must be endured.  In the words of power yogi Muktananda:

"I was assailed by all sorts of perverse and defiling emotions....my breathing (became) disturbed...my abdomen would swell with air...my mind was sick with fear (my) thoughts became confused, meaningless.   My limbs and body got hotter and hotter....Then I felt a searing pain...I wanted to run away, but my legs were locked tight in the lotus posture.....Then...a moonlike sphere...came floating in (it) struck against my eyes and...passed inside me...I was terrified (but) still locked in the lotus posture (with) my head forced down and glued to the ground....I started to make a sound like a camel, which alternated with the roaring of a tiger (I went) completely insane (and jumped and hopped) like a frog (while) my limbs (shook) violently. (Later) I learned that this was a Hatha Yoga process effected by the Goddess Kundalini in order for Her to move up through the spinal column into the sahasrana (upper psychic center.)"  (Play of Consciousness, Swami Muktananda, pp. 75-81, 84-85, 88-89)  

With continued practice, surrender, and preparation, one day the kundalini current will reach full voltage and there will no longer be 'anybody home' but an unholy spirit residing in an empty shell of a body:

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity.  The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)."   Finally it happened---explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated.  Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels."   "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..."   (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45) 

Like "new" contemplative prayer and other occultisms, yoga does not liberate; it enslaves and binds.  It does not enlighten but brings confusion and insanity.  It makes people immune to redemption through Christ,

"Yoga does not open the door for the Holy Spirit, but for spiritist spirits."  (Occult ABC: Exposing Occult Practices and Ideologies, Kurt E. Koch, p. 259)

Occult (Demonic) Bondage

According to Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987), a noted German theologian and minister with extensive personal experience in counseling and delivering thousands of people held in occult bondage, modern theologians who follow current scientific trends would be shocked by how many of the so-called scientists and intellectuals they slavishly follow have turned to occultism and spiritism (sorcery) and become demonized as a result.  Be they scientist or otherwise, all who trespass into Satan's domain by committing sins of sorcery will be harassed by the powers of darkness, irrespective of whether they take the step consciously or unconsciously.   Every sin of sorcery (occultism) cuts a person off from the Holy God and opens the door to demonic bondage.  Any person who serves the devil (occult), will receive the devil's wages (Exod. 7:11-12; Lev. 19: 26, 32; Zech. 12:2; Mal. 3:5; Acts 8:16; Acts 16:16; 1 Sam. 28; 2 Chron. 10:13-14; Isaiah 2:6; 8:19; Jer. 27:9, 10; Gal. 5:20; 2 Tim. 3:8; Rev. 21:8; Rev. 22:15).   Thus when a person abandons the Holy Triune God through sins of sorcery, he abandons his inner person (mind, will, conscience) at the same time as seen in relation to psychological disturbances having the following predominant characteristics:

(1) Warped, distorted character: hard-edged egoism; uncongenial, dark nature.

(2) Extreme passions: hard-edged egoism, abnormal sexuality (sodomy, lesbianism, sadomasochism, bestiality, pedophilia, pederasty, zoophiles); violent temper, belligerence; tendencies to addiction; meanness and kleptomania; compulsive lying.

(3) Emotional disturbances; compulsive thoughts of murder and suicide, anxiety states.

(4) Possession with destructive urges, fits of mania; tendency to violent acts and crime

(5) Insanity.

(6) Bigoted attitude against Christ and God; conscious atheism; simulated piety; indifference to God’s word and to prayer; blasphemous thoughts; religious delusions.

The ultimate goal of fallen angels and evil spirits is degradation and desecration of mans' inner person, the spiritual part of him created in the image of the Holy God. So what are systematically defaced and desecrated are the mind, will, conscience and sense of good and evil. 

Demonic Darkness: America’s Invisible Wave of Evil

Carl A. Raschke is Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Denver specializing in Continental philosophy and the philosophy and theory of religion.  He is also America’s leading authority on subcultures of demonic darkness.  In his fully-documented work, “Painted Black” he puts together a terrifying puzzle to reveal the chilling facts and cases behind an invisible wave of evil working through the minds of children and adults and subsequently sweeping over and across our nation outwardly manifest in an alarming epidemic of violence and madness that Western therapeutic science explains away as hallucinations, genetic influences and chemical disturbances.   Such a posture, said Raschke, hinges on the most incredible delusion that the "symbol of the Devil does not at all mean what the symbol of the Devil has always meant…” (Painted Black, p.404).

According to Rashcke, demonic bondage does not always manifest itself in a will to do evil:

Many of today’s young satanists (are characterized) by a metaphysics of exhaustion and despair.  A culture of despair becomes ever easier pickings for the…child pornographers (and the) professional (satanic) terrorists themselves.  Satanism has already yielded a climate of fear in middle-class quarters where fear had never flourished before.” (p. 406)

A culture of “exhaustion and despair” also welcomes demonized perverse 'sex-educators' (14) and professional satanic terrorists like the 9/11 murderers and ISIS.

Where occult bondage manifests itself in a will to do evil it is seen in the recent Dark Knight movie murders (15) and in the following chilling account:

In a chilling 911 call, Texas teen Jake Evans spent 20 minutes calmly recounting how he shot and killed his mother and sister, calling himself “evil.” (Texas Teen Tells 911 It Was Weird to Kill His Mother and Sister, abcnews, Oct. 5, 2012)

It’s weird,” an even-voiced Evans told the 911 dispatcher. “I wasn’t even really angry with them. It just kind of happened. I’ve been kind of planning on killing for a while now.”  “I’ll never forget this. My sister, she came down the stairs and she was screaming and I was telling her that I’m sorry but to just hold still–that, you know, I was just going to make it go away,” he said. “But she just kept on freaking out, but finally she fell down, and I got her in the head about, probably, three times.” “Just to let you know, I hate the feeling of killing someone. I’m going to be messed up,” he told the operator." “I’m really worried about nightmares and stuff like that. Are there any type of medications for that and stuff?”

America's secularized culture is a spiritual vacuum into which innumerable dark psychic forces have flooded.  Most of the present destructive generation is sick, lawless, narcissistic, and undisciplined.   America, the dying leader of the world, bleeds from thousands of self-inflicted wounds as she marches toward her own destruction to the beat of unseen drummers.  

The clearest answer to the evil conditions of our times is found in the Bible.   We are living in the Last Days.  The final pages of history are now being read.  Our time,

"...can only be understood aright in the light of the prophetic word.  Satan is mobilizing all his forces for an all-out attack.  The demonic world has entered the final lap....To fail, therefore, to take our stand at the foot of the cross, to fail to build our house upon the Rock, is to be swept away by the turmoil of the End-Times.  We are living in days of a demonic nature!"  (Demonology Past and Present, Kurt E. Koch, p. 37)
