Satan stepping up war for souls
Clerical Whispers ^ | 1/10/14 | Clerical Whispers

"...The rise in demonic possession reports is a result of more people dabbling in black magic, paganism, Satanic rites and Ouija-board conjuring, often exploring "the dark arts" with the help of information readily found on the internet, the church said.

The increase in the number of priests being trained to tackle the phenomenon is also an effort by the church to sideline self-proclaimed exorcists, and is tacit recognition that belief in Satan, once regarded by progressives as an embarrassment, is still very much alive."

It wouldn’t surprise me to learn that pretty much all leftists are demon-possessed. Lord knows they have a great hatred for all things Christian.

You may not far off the mark. I live in a very liberal area of California. It’s bizarre, and frightening, to listen to liberals I know talk about Christianity. There is a deep rooted hatred towards us and they feel emboldened to voice their disdain. However, they will go out of their way to trivialize Islamic terrorism stating that we must understand muslim anger. It’s verbal gibberish when these liberals try to justify their justification to hate what is good and love what is evil. But scripture talks about these types of people in the end times.

This reminds me of the self proclaimed exorcists.... it’s the title of another active thread right now...

“Nigerian Pastor Tries to Walk on Water Like Jesus, Then Drowns in Front of His Congregation”

You do not self proclaim to be an exorcist.... It’s not a job or title one should seek. However when it is thrust upon you when you did not ask for it, assume it is His Will and go with the flow.

When I started doing it in the early 1990’s, it seemed like each dark spirit I encountered was higher and more powerful. I met the big bad guy one night, and turned to Michael and said, “There he is, you can get him.” To which Michael replied, “It’s not time yet.”

That is when I realized that God is in control, even in control of satan. God is using satan for a purpose and everything is unfolding exactly according to God’s plan. That night I stopped my war on satan’s minions and only deal with them when it appears to be a Divine Coincidence. (I define a “Coincidence” as an event where God chooses to remain anonymous.)

Recently I have noticed a big increase in the number of weeds wandering around and attaching to people.... The big economic and political turmoil ahead is being created by the “weeds” in order for them to hide in the emotional wheat field. Some of you may understand this.

wow. very well put. the gifts and power from God is not for self-glory, as those who try, learn the hard way. Plus I’m glad you put in perspective the order of things. Too many Christians fall trap to the worldly view that somehow Satan and God are just equal and opposite. Nothing is further from the truth.

Keep up the good work. (as in obedience when summoned and humility as your cloak.)

That is when I realized that God is in control, even in control of satan.

You might find this interesting:

..."The author of the book we are about to discuss is convinced that the trials endured by Antoine Gay had a divine purpose, or, as we should call it, a finality, similar to that shown in the case of Helene Poirier. As in the case of Bernadette Soubirous, this purpose might be seen as the intention of proving the existence of the supernatural in a world increasingly given to doubt and incredulity. In other words, the answer to the often quoted saying of Baudelaire: 'The Devil's deepest wile is to persuade us that he does not exist.' The trick could lead us into mortal danger. The Devil desires nothing better than to be free to act without being recognised. But God does not permit this. He is obliged, willy-nilly, to reveal himself. The facts we are about to repeat are a case in point..."

Satan has ALWAYS been around, working very hard. The fallen angel isn't with us any MORE or any LESS.
Exorcism has always and will always be needed because people are so fatally FLAWED. Humans DO make deals with the devil. Humans CAN be relied on to SO OFTEN take the "low road," the easy path.

Also, humans haven't changed ONE iota since Adam and Eve and all the cave dwellers. As Abraham Lincoln once said:
You can modify human behavior to some extent but you can't change human nature.

I’ve wondered how the UCC, UU or other liberal denominations deal with this? Since they seem to pride themselves on being welcoming and on being nonjudgmental...

Thank you, Scholastic Publishers, and your author who sold her soul to the Devil, for Harry Potter. America is experiencing a generation raised on the occult. Most grown-ups think the Potter books are fine because some of the wizards are good wizards. Seriously.

It sounds like God wants Satan to do what he is doing.

Is God enabling Satan? Satan is doing a lot of harm to the human race. Why would God allow, or even facilitate, that?

“Michael who, the Archangel?”

Yes, He is un-mistakable when He is present.

When I first met Him, I had no idea who He was as He introduced Himself as Mi Ki El, not Michael. The name was not familiar but the energy emanating from Him was familiar.

” Satan is doing a lot of harm to the human race. Why would God allow, or even facilitate, that? “

We have no room for God when we are full of ourselves. Thus the parable of not putting new wine in an old wineskin. You must get rid of the old to make room for the new. Satan is doing that for God

It’s kind of like tilling the field in order for the newly planted seeds to grow.

~ PRAYER ~

St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle
 Be our protection against the wickedness
and snares of the devil;
May God rebuke him, we  humbly pray,
 and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
 by the power of God,
 Cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.
 Amen
