'Never before has evil had such a stage and such a microphone': "Even the secular press gives the devil his due, as reports of violence driven by occult beliefs are sweeping the global media. In Mexico, a restaurant worker was reportedly tortured to death as part of a Satanic ritual....

    "Thus, mainstream media outlets are proclaiming the global 'comeback' of exorcism and spiritual warfare as Christians try to combat a perceived rise in occult practices. And experts warn demonic influence is real, and not to be taken lightly.

    “'It is incorrect to say that Satan or demons have authority to kill human beings,' said Payne (the author). Jesus Christ alone ultimately holds the keys to life and death. ... The Word of God clearly states that the Last Days would experience an outpouring of demonic activity and influence, even affecting the church and the perversion of contextual biblical doctrine.” See Spiritual Warfare: Reviving Witchcraft

Colorado middle schools and high schools have started allowing atheists and Satanists to distribute their literature.... As of Apr. 19, the petition has managed to gather 104,700 signatures for the call to have the Satanic black mass in Oklahoma canceled.... Among the literature handed out to the Colorado students is a coloring book titled 'The Satanic Children's Big Book of Activities,' created by The Satanic Temple."

(Slow to open) Satanism as a new political movement in America: "Did you know that when Barack Obama began his presidency with his mother-in-law inviting a voodoo priestess to perform a Santeria ceremony in the White House?

Warning for Parents. Don’t Call Charlie: "A new challenge game is going viral. It’s about connecting with a dead spirit from Mexico named 'Charlie.' Fueled by thousands of videos from young people supposedly showing 'contact,' the game is played by placing two pencils in the shape of a cross on a piece of paper with the words 'yes' and 'no.' Those present then repeat the phrase, “Charlie, Charlie can we play?” in order to make contact with the demon.

     "If 'Charlie' is there, the pencils are said to move toward his answer. If 'present,' then questions of any kind are asked…and answered. To end the game, players say, 'Charlie, Charlie can we stop?'

     "If you are ever invited to play this game, don’t. In fact, flee the entire situation. Don’t even be present as an observer. If you are a parent that catches even the slightest whiff of this in your child’s life, do quick intervention. Because it’s... the occult. The word 'occult' just means that which is hidden, or secret, beyond the range of ordinary human knowledge or below the surface of normal life. ...a reference to those practices which link up, intentionally or not, with the hidden, or secret, world of Satan and his demons."

The Occult.  Are Over Half of Evangelicals Wrong About Satan? "Mention of Satan has disappeared from most Evangelical churches' doctrinal statements.... Today, the majority of Evangelicals believe that Satan is not a living being, but merely, at most, a symbol of evil or an impersonal force. These developments bespeak a woeful, widespread ignorance of what the Bible says about Satan, the active enemy of every believer. From beginning to end, the Bible makes plain the facts of Satan's personal existence as a created being, and his immense power and influence in the present world."

    "In his fallen state Satan is still subject to God, but he is the chief enemy of God, manifesting unremitting hatred toward God, His Word, and the person and work of Christ. Satan is also the chief adversary of mankind, and continually seeks to afflict mankind and seduce men toward every kind of evil. He especially wages war against believers in Christ. Satan's ultimate defeat was pronounced by God after he deceived our first parents into sin; it was secured at the cross by Christ, and will be consummated when Satan is cast into the Lake of Fire for eternity."

Films like the recent blockbuster hit 'Ouija,' ghost-hunting 'reality' TV shows, and even the Harry Potter books have made magic mainstream...

    "In late October, the International Association of Exorcists held a conference on the impact of the occult and Satanism. Valter Cascioli, a spokesman for the 300-member organization, warned of an "extraordinary increase in demonic activity," citing how Satanic groups are “constantly increasing." For exorcists, this means their jobs are in high demand." See Spiritual Warfare: Reviving Witchcraft


What Could Soon Be Given To Unsuspecting Florida School Kids Will Outrage Lots Of Parents: "Recently, Western Journalism told you about the Bible-bashing booklet that will soon be handed out to Florida high school students by an atheist organization — a publication whose front cover depicts a lecherous, cartoon Bible sexually assaulting a screaming woman.

Pagan Unity Festival Brings 'Devil-Worship' Into the Light: "Here’s what I learned about Paganism after spending a day at the Pagan Unity Festival in Burns, Tenn.: Paganism... is an umbrella term... There are Druids, who believe in the Celtic pantheon and have a deep reverence for the environment. There are Ásatrúar [I never heard that word in Norway], whose pantheon consists of the Norse gods....

     "There are Wiccans, who themselves can be divided into several different categories; some invoke pantheons ranging from Egyptian to Greco-Roman, while some Wiccans pay sole tribute to Diana. Then there are eclectic Pagans, who borrow elements from other Pagan sects...

Occult.  Satanism in America Today - Part 1: "I suffered at least two attempts on my life for my Christian witness.... Had they successfully abducted me, I would have been hauled to the infamous satanist caverns of the Smoky Mountains, to be nailed to a cross and sacrificed to 'teach me a little lesson' (as my father’s former high priest admitted to me as I interviewed him) for daring to stand against satanism in those mountains...

     "There are many fine Christians living in this region as well.... Please pray for the many lost youth in that pagan mecca of America’s southeast, Asheville, NC. The battle is always raging… the power of satan, or the power of the Living God through Jesus Christ, their only hope....

     "I can never forget my years of working among and interviewing these young people, and hearing of their tragic experiences of being raised in multi-generational occult households throughout this region.... Yes, vampirism is also found in the mountains of NC [North Carolina ]and TN [ Tennessee ]." See Spiritual Warfare: Reviving Witchcraft


Occult.  Satanism in America Today - Part 2: "...some of these precious children were then sold to homosexual households out of state. They were forced into satanist covens. They were even sacrificed. Or sold to pedophiles in that region as well.

     "A friend, former CIA, admitted that the DHHS in that area was the most satanist-infiltrated agency there. When one Christian family I was assisting, tried to rescue such children from the corrupt hands of the satanists with the DSS there, they came under horrific attack. … As he later recounted to me, John Bruce threw himself out of the vehicle and rolled down an embankment in the dark. They could not find him, and so shot up his vehicle and then fled....

     "...they warned me, “This kind of thing is much more common in these parts than most people think. And don’t even trust the police you think are working with you…because many of them ARE SATANISTS....

     "Unlike so many naive Christians, even these younger satanists know exactly what is to come under martial law. ... If these people are NOT reached for Jesus Christ now, they will certainly be used for Satan’s dark purposes THEN.... Oh, God, have mercy on their eternal souls!

Harvard Will Host 'Reenactment' of Satanic Mass: “To us, the Black Mass is an amalgamation that developed through time based on witch-hunting fears and later adopted by some as a declaration of personal Independence against what they felt to be the stifling authority of the church, said Greaves.

      "...during the Black Mass reenactment, representatives of The Satanic Temple will provide narration on the academic and historical aspects of a Satanic Mass. ....

     "Harvard University was launched in 1639 through a financial gift from the Protestant clergyman John Harvard. In its early decades, Harvard trained many Protestant ministers who went on to serve the various Christian churches of New England.

Skull & Bones plan gives Jerusalem Holy Sites to Vatican: "The decades old globalist plot to 'internationalize' the Israeli capital city Jerusalem was first proposed in the 1947 partition plan at the UN (itself a brainchild of Rockefeller), but was flatly rejected by the Arabs....

     "The British secret society, known as 'The Group' or just plain 'US', was founded at Oxford University, much as The Order was founded at Yale, but without the Masonic mumbo jumbo. As we noted in Memorandum Five, the Group operates in a series of concentric circles and like The Order consists of old line families allied with private merchant bankers, known in the U. S. as investment bankers." See Antony Sutton - Skull & Bones
