When All Hell Breaks Loose

NOTE FROM JAN: The rising tide of evil is staggering and no one documents that better than Jill Martin Rische, the daughter of the late Dr. Walter Martin.  Jill has authored this issue of our twice-a-month e-newsletter. She ends on a positive note. The devil is a defeated foe!

Why is it that humans never learn from history? The vast majority don't know or care about it, and so we are condemned to repeat it. 

Today, we live in a Twilight Zone America, where the Leave it to Beaver neighbors of the 1950s have been replaced with nasty men in dresses, filling in for Mrs. Cleaver at the public library. We don't care about the days when biology was scientific fact. We don't remember when reputations mattered -- so now we have drag queens -- some of them with occultic-themed costumes and some of them sex offenders -- as the new stars of Storytime for modern-day children.

Occult-themed drag queen story hour

Mr. Rogers' Friendly Neighborhood is No More
The level of evil aimed at innocent children is off the charts and it doesn't seem to faze people one bit. A recent social media scare warned about MoMo, the bird woman, who might pop up unexpectedly in children's videos spouting violent suggestions and challenging young viewers to harm family, friends, and themselves.

Alarming media and celebrity warnings flew across the airwaves, urging parents to keep an eye on their child's G-rated videos. It was a national response to an unconfirmed rumor, given by voices that remain silent as newborns are terminated outside of the womb. This is the insanity of a fallen world.

Welcome to the Fall of America
So many know nothing about how great civilizations fall. They don't connect the historical fact that the rejection of God ALWAYS leads to the rise of evil. Today, we turn on our TVs or computers and see the glorification of everything vile that crushed ancient Israel and Rome -- everything awful that destroyed seventeenth century France and twentieth century Germany.

But the lure of secret power is irresistible and though far weaker than the power of God, they choose it, "Being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart" (Eph 4:18). Where the occult thrives, there is no hope -- malevolent evil always breeds despair. Today, clinical depression is a way of life in America and a billion-dollar drug industry sedates us, but cannot stop suicide rates from climbing.

Witchcraft Soars
Who could have guessed that the twenty-first century would bring a witchcraft boom? Its biggest cheerleaders are the media, who glorify it as a GOOD practice when all the evidence of history tells us it has always been evil. How do you fight a media blitz raving about Superbowls, super model wives and their cute little habit of closet witchcraft?

Patriot Quarterback, Tom Brady, thought he was doing something good when he shared special moments with his wife, Gisele, in an interview after his fifth Superbowl victory.  

"You know I've learned a lot from my wife over the years. She always makes a little altar for me at the game, because she just wills it so much. She put together a little altar for me that I can bring with pictures of my kids, and I have these little special stones and healing stones and protection stones, and she has me wear this necklace, and take these drops she makes, and I say all these mantras, and I stopped questioning her a long time ago."

Tom _ Gisele Brady
Tom Brady and wife

Although Brady never used the word witch, every practice he mentioned has always been part of witchcraft. And so we see -- as front page news -- the worldwide image of two gorgeous human beings with a family of small children, relying on the potions, spell-casting, and soothsaying of a wife and mother consumed by the power of the occult.

What Would Sam Walton Think?
Who could have imagined that the family-friendly Walmart empire would have turned to absolute darkness? This link takes you to the online ordering option where you can request just about anything of an occult nature you might like! 

A popular Walmart product: Satanic goat head jewelry

Pentagrams, Masonic imagery, Baphomet on every item imaginable, and more, are proudly displayed!  Everything you can think of celebrates the devil in Walmart! Next time you stroll down their aisles, think twice before handing big dollars over to them. 

Christian Witches?
As if the Brady's propaganda were not enough, the "Christian Witch" (an oxymoron if ever there was one) has arrived on the American scene. This is their redefinition of witchcraft -- a new and improved label -- since the Bible clearly teaches that all witchcraft is evil.

But it is nothing new for Satan to present himself as an angel of light. Valerie Love, an ex-Jehovah's Witness-turned-Christian-witch is simply marching to the same ancient drum. She believes in white witchcraft just like the Brady's, even though biblically and historically, there is no such thing as a good witch.

She has a "mystery school" as well. She says she is doing these things "for those who love Christ and the craft." The "craft" would be witchcraft. There is a reason the Bible speaks of end-time strong delusion and this woman will lead many astray.

Evil Waxes Worse and Worse But We Are Not Without Hope
A famous writer once said, "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." He wrote this about a world he loved -- a country that was peaceful and secure, until the people rejected God. At the start of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln wrote that Americans turned their backs on God, and all hell broke loose.

This is the pattern of history and we are in the middle of a new storm -- perhaps the final one. But God shows His love toward us, that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). Our hope is in His unfailing love. We must be salt and light in a very dark place, giving Him all the glory. The power of the occult is strong, but it is far weaker than God's power and it fears US.

When it seems like all hell is breaking loose, how wonderful to know that this world is not our home. We have an eternity of incredible joy to look forward to a new heaven and a new earth. What will it be like? The lion will lie down with the lamb, there will be no more tears, no suffering, no evil people, no Satan and no death.

Dr. Kurt Koch, a twentieth century Lutheran pastor and 40-year warrior against the occult, puts it all into perspective. "Satan and all the hosts of darkness are a defeated foe. The triumphant theme of the New Testament is that 'Jesus has disarmed the principalities and powers and made a public example of them, triumphing over them'" (Col. 2:15).

Also, be reminded, that an occult explosion is another sign of the lateness of the hour. The Bible references this in many places in a last days' context  (II Timothy 3:13; Rev. 9:21).  

We know how the book ends...and we win! "Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Cor. 15:57).
