Conservative Christian writer Cliff Kincaid reported that his courageous Catholic priest, "....Father Larry Swink, delivered a homily on Sunday that I told him would make headlines. In the toughest sermon I have ever heard from a pulpit, he attacked the Obama Administration as evil, even demonic, and warned of religious persecution ahead..." (Catholic Church Rejects Surrender Terms From Obama, gopusa.com, 1/30/2012) Another term for the demonic, or spirit of the antichrist, is "egregore." Egregore derives from the Greek word, á¼Î³ÏÎ®Î³Î¿ÏÎ¿Î¹ (egrá¸—goroi), meaning "watchers," which appears in the Septuagint translation of the Book of Lamentations, as well as the Book of Jubilees and the Book of Enoch.
In Le Grand Arcane ("The Great Mystery", 1868) Eliphas Levi, French occult author and ceremonial magician, identifies egregore with the tradition concerning the fallen angels...the fathers of the nephilim. Levi describes them as "terrible beings" that "crush us" without pity.
Using Paul's definition, egregore are 'powers and principalities.' Collectively, they are the spirit of antichrist---Satan's legion of fallen angels and disembodied demons (the nephilim).
The antichrists of the twentieth century came from the Soviet Union---an Eastern Othodox nation---in the form of Marxist materialist-pagan revolutionaries, and from Germany---a Protestant nation---in the form of occult pagan Nazis.
In both nations, the Spirit of God had departed, allowing the spirit of antichrist to take control. Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar, explains what occurred by pointing out that when the Spirit of God departed from King Saul another spirit (egregore) took control upon which Saul fell into madness. His mind fueled with hatred of David and obsessed with the need to murder him, Saul used the full force of the nation's resources and its' army to hunt down and kill David.
Considered by many to be an apocalyptic prophet for foretelling both the rise of a godless Tower of Babel in Russia and the subsequent murder of millions, like Mangalwadi, Fyodor Dostoevsky attributes all that happened there to demonic powers.
"Demons" is the third of his four great murder novels, which also include: Crime and Punishment (published 1866), The Idiot (published 1868) and The Brothers Karamazov (published 1880). The novel Demons accurately applies New Testament texts from Luke's gospel and Revelation on the demonic to Russian political extremism and the foundations of Russian communism. ( http://www.fyodordostoevsky.com/essays/d-chisholm.html )
The central theme of "Demons" is built around a conception of evil and the demonic appearing in Russia with the arrival of supposedly rational, secular ideas (i.e., scientism, materialism, socialism, communism, nihilism, atheism) from Western Europe. The ideas turn out to be demons. After throughly analyzing the supposedly rational ideas, Dostoevsky saw two things at the foundation of them all: the death of God and the face of the devil. Dostoevsky therefore envisages the evil spirits coming to the Russians as foreign secular ideas that are imported by secular revolutionaries---haters of God.
"Demons" opens with Luke 8: 32 - 36, which serves as the cornerstone for the entire novel. In the form of voice-ideas (ideas that speak into minds), evil spirits have entered into a herd of swine - God-hating revolutionaries. The revolutionaries have either already drowned (murdered each other, committed suicide, become insane, etc) or will do so in the future after having murdered the innocent, thereby condemning themselves to eternal damnation.
There are two types of demonic possession, individual and collective (society wide). Though "Demons" describes both, its' emphasis is on collective possession. Collective possession is the egregore of group-think, of group-madness.
To all who are spiritually awake, it is plain that a spirit of madness, of group-think, hate and restlessness is moving over and across our nation, emptying out orthodox churches as it twists, distorts, and inverts our nation. In contemporary America 2+2=5, bad is good, but evil is better.
An irresistable spirit of restlessness empties orthodox Churches by manuvering Christians away from the "scientifically-illiterate" "unfashionably fundamental" faith of the fathers and out into a fast-moving current flowing toward fashionable 'seeker-sensitive' 'emergent' and 'contemporary' churches that serve as stepping-stones to an arising universal One Faith of the One Spirit.

Vishal Mangalwadi warns that America could produce the antichrist in the 21st century. If Americans do not return to the Bible and orthodox faith, with "the Bible as the cultural authority â€“ having influence over the Congress, over the courts, over the universities â€“ if that does not happen, then the antichrist in the 21st century will come from America."
