"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world." —1st Peter 5:8-9

       The inspired Word of God teaches that Satan is the god of this world, and his primary function is to blind humanity from the truth of the Gospel, “lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” The Devil is a monster, who wants as many people as possible to spend eternity burning with him in Hell. John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Satan is a nefarious being, that is, extremely wicked.

The Scriptures call Satan our “adversary,” our enemy. 1st Peter 5:7-8, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” The Devil walketh about, seeking victims, so he can devour our life and happiness. Satan will rob you of everything you hold near and dear in this life. Sin thrills and then it kills. Sin fascinates and then it assassinates. Thomas Guthrie said, “Never fear to suffer; but, oh, fear to sin! If you must choose between them, prefer the greatest suffering to the smallest sin.” I bought a helpful little book years ago by Dr. Curtis Hutson titled, Punch Lines, which is filled with hundreds of helpful quotes for preachers to use in their sermons. Here's some quotes from the book about the Devil...

Satan is to be avoided as a lion; dreaded as a serpent; but he must be feared as “an angel of light”!

“The Devil did not tempt Adam and Eve to steal, to lie, to kill, to commit adultery; he tempted them to live independent of God.” —Dr. Bob Jones Sr.

“Satan can build a wall around us, and often does, but he can never put a lid on it! SO KEEP LOOKING UP!

Why, the very spelling of the Devil's name shows what he is—Devil, evil, vile, ill, hell! —Pastor Charles Spurgeon

The Holy Bible teaches that the Devil is presently DECEIVING the whole world. Satan is deceiving people in many ways. We read in Daniel 8:25 that the Antichrist “BY PEACE SHALL DESTROY MANY.” Satan is peacefully setting up his demonic New World Order, the 7th king (world power) of Revelation 17:10. The 8th king will be the Antichrist, who rises up from the 7th. What brute force communism failed to accomplish during World War I and World War II, Luciferians are accomplishing today peacefully through deceptive world trade agreements, the ungodly United Nations, oppressive World Banks, et cetera. The world is being deceived in many ways...

Revelation 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

Revelation 13:14, “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth.”

Revelation 20:10, “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

Revelation 19:20, “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast.”

THE DEVIL IS A BEAUTIFUL LIAR!!! These are but a few Scriptures teaching that the Devil DECEIVES mankind. I could write a book of the various ways in which the masses are being DECEIVED today worldwide.

Americans in particular have been woefully deceived in so many ways. The bogus lies of Evolution are a massive fraud. God pity all the brainwashed children riding on the public fool bus each day! The Federal Reserve Banking system is a massive fraud, intended to rob hardworking Americans of their wealth. Since the year 1913, when the Federal Reserve Act was passed under shady circumstances (over a quiet Christmas weekend while most members of congress were absent), the American people have been victimized by the ungodly, thieving, international banking cartel. THEY ARE OPPRESSORS AND GREEDY TYRANTS, THE PERPETRATORS OF ALL MAJOR WARS (FOR FINANCIAL PROFIT)!!! You can learn all about this horror in Commander William Guy Carr's insightful book titled, “PAWNS IN THE GAME.” One way that Satan is DECEIVING the world is through the diabolical United Nations...

“The U.N. has become a trap. Let’s go it alone.” —U.S. Senator Robert Taft

“Until my dying day, I will regret signing the United Nations Charter.” —U.S. Senator Patrick McCarran

“The time has come to recognize the United Nations for the anti-American, anti-freedom organization that it has become. The time has come for us to cut off all financial help, withdraw as a member, and ask the United Nations to find a headquarters location outside the United States that is more in keeping with the philosophy of the majority of voting members, someplace like Moscow or Peking.” —U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater

“Unless the U.N. is completely reorganized without the Communist nations in it, we should get out of it.” —former President Herbert Hoover

The world has been DECEIVED by Luciferians concerning the truth behind World Wars I and II (and now we're being led into World War III). The masses were deceitfully led into ALL major wars, which over the past two centuries have claimed the lives of over 200,000,000 people. Power can become a dangerous thing!!! Although the higher powers are ordained by God (Romans 13:1-10), Satan exploits these “higher” powers for his own agendas. The Bible refers to such exploitation as “spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12b). Satan uses all power that is “delivered” unto him by God, to DECEIVE the world, to BLIND the masses from the truth of the Gospel. Luke 4:6, “And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.” Satan gives “power” to those whom He chooses to give it, but ultimately ALL power comes only from God.

“We need to stop reading books about the Bible and read THE BIBLE!”
Pastor Steven Anderson, from the helpful sermon titled, “FABLES AND FAKE HISTORY.”

Luciferianism is Synonymous With Communism, Zionism and Marxism

The Devil has DECEIVED the world into supporting the New World Order (NWO). Tragically, the churches are also being sucked into this woeful deception. Satan is a crafty liar. Satan is such a powerful personality that he was successfully able to lead one-third of the angels away from their Creator (Revelation 12:4). This is one reason why I believe in an Old Earth principle (aka, Gap Principle). Satan (the “serpent” according to Revelation 20:2) was already present in the Garden of Eden. Where did Satan come from? Obviously he was already present upon the earth, which suggests that one-third of the angels rebelled with Lucifer prior to Adam and Eve.

In fact, I believe that Jeremiah 4:23-26 refers to the time when God destroyed the earth, a pre-Adamic creation, because of Lucifer's rebellion, which rendered the earth to the chaotic condition of Genesis 1:2. Jeremiah 4:23, “I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light.” This sure sounds like Genesis 1:2a, “And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.” For this reason, and dozens more, I believe that the Holy Bible clearly teaches an Old Earth, but a young human race.

The average Christian is woefully naive of THE TRUTH. Satan is the god of this world. The Bible plainly teaches that in 2nd Corinthians 4:4. Yet, most believers don't know Satan's methods. Commander William Guy Carr (1895-1959) makes the following statements in his eye-opening book, PAWNS IN THE GAME...

Very few people seem to appreciate that Lucifer is the brightest and most intelligent of the heavenly host and, because he is a pure spirit, he is indestructible. The Scriptures tell us his power is such that he caused one-third of the most intelligent of the heavenly host to defect from God, and join him, because he claimed God's Plan for the rule of the universe is weak and impractical because it is based on the premise that lesser beings can be taught to know, love, and wish to serve Him voluntarily out of respect for His own infinite perfections. The Luciferian ideology states might is right. It claims beings of proven superior intelligence have the right to rule those less gifted because the masses don't know what is best for them. The Luciferian ideology is what we call totalitarianism today.

The Old Testament is simply the history of how Satan became prince of the world, and caused our first parents to defect from God. It relates how the synagogue of Satan was established on this earth, it tells how it has worked since to prevent God's Plan for the rule of the universe being established on this earth. Christ came to earth when the conspiracy reached the stage that, to use His own Words, Satan controlled all those in high places. He exposed the synagogue of Satan (Rev. 2:9;3:9); he denounced those who belonged to it as sons of the Devil (Lucifer), whom He castigated as the father of lies (John 8:44) and the prince of deceit (2nd Cor. 11:14). He was specific in His statement that those who comprised the synagogue of Satan were those who called themselves Jews, but were not, and did lie (Rev. 2:9; 3:9). He identified the Money-Changers (Bankers), the Scribes, and the Pharisees as the Illuminati of His day.

Page X in PAWNS IN THE GAME brings the conspiracy up to date...

In 1774 "An Act of God" placed the Bavarian government in possession of evidence which proved the existence of the continuing Luciferian conspiracy.  Adam Weishaupt, a Jesuit trained professor of canon law, defected from Christianity, and embraced the Luciferian ideology while teaching in Ingoldstadt University.  In 1770 the money lenders (who had recently organized the House of Rothschild), retrained him to revise and modernize the age-old 'protocols' designed to give the synagogue of Satan ultimate world domination so they can impose Luciferian ideology upon what remains of the Human Race, after the final social cataclysm, by use of Satanic despotism.  Weishaupt completed his task May 1st, 1776.

The plan required the destruction of ALL existing governments and religions.  This objective was to be reached by dividing the masses, whom he termed Goyim (meaning human cattle) into opposing camps.

When darkness is brought into the light, it loses its power!

It is no coincidence that Americans are deliberately kept divided on every issue. Our nation is divided politically between Republican and Democrat. We are divided between Protestant and Roman Catholic. We are a house divided on the abortion issue, same-sex perversion, the Evolution hoax, having literally hundreds of English Bible versions to choose from, et cetera. Our churches are divided over the meaning of repentance, the Gospel, the timing of Christ's return, and many others doctrines. The biggest battle of the ages is over the inspiration of God's Holy Word. THE KING JAMES BIBLE IS INSPIRED!!!!!!!

The quote below is from a minister who exposes Judaism (false Jewry) for the Christ-hating religion it truly is. Consider the following information from Pastor Gordon Winrod. (Please note that I love Jewish people and this is not a negative reflection upon the Jewish people themselves; but rather, a refutation of the counterfeit Jewish religion of Judaism, counterfeit present-day Israel and the counterfeit Antichrist messiah they are awaiting) ...

"Judaism does not know Jesus Christ. Judaism hates Jesus Christ. When St. Paul was in Judaism, before he was converted to Christianity, he hated Jesus Christ and persecuted Christians and Christianity."

Paul said: "You have heard of my earlier career in Judaism - how furiously I persecuted the Church of God, and made havoc of it; and how in devotion to Judaism I out-stripped many men of may own age among my people, being far more zealous than they for the tradition of my forefathers." (Gal. 1:13, 14, Weymouth Translation)

While in Judaism, Paul persecuted Christians because of his intense hatred for Christians and because of his conformity to the tradition of the fathers. This shows that the tradition of teachings of Judaism are filled with hate for Christians.

Few people know of this because they do not carefully read their Scriptures and because of the great pains which Jews have take to deceive the Christians. Care has been exerted by the Jews to hide their ECONOMIC-POLITICAL conspiracy for complete world domination UNDER high sounding words that have a "RELIGIOUS" ring in the ears of Christians.

The Jews use such "religious" sounding words as "the Jewish faith," "the Jewish religion," "Jewish spiritual values," "Jewish religious doctrines," and like phrases which deceive and lead the unlearned into total equanimity.

Behind this mask of religiosity stands a complete plan for world government, world power, world conquest, a Jewish kingdom of this world, and the destruction of Christianity.

SOURCE: REV. GORDON WINROD, his book, "The Keys to Christian Understanding," pages 114-115.

Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. Don't believe the giant lie that Christ-rejecting Jews are God's chosen people. They are not! Biblically, God's promise to bless Israel is CONDITIONAL. Exodus 19:5, “Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine.” IF YE WILL OBEY! IF YE WILL OBEY! IF YE WILL OBEY! Don't miss that! People read over that and ignore this Scripture. IF YE WILL OBEY! The Jews not only disobeyed God, but murdered their Messiah. In the Bible, the promises of God always followed through a LINE OF FAITH, and never through a Jewish biological line. The churches are filled with LIES today, one of those lies being that biological Jews are God's people. Romans 2:28-29, “For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.”

The Luciferian elite fully understand that they have complete control over the people, just so long as they can keep us A HOUSE DIVIDED AMONGST OURSELVES. Matthew 12:25, “And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.” Americans are our own worst enemies!!!

Lucifer is the Devil, Satan, Serpent, the Dragon

Revelation 20:2, “And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.”

The Holy Bible has much to say about who Satan is, his methods and how we can defend ourselves against him. James 4:7, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” God knows the Devil better than anyone, because He created him, and the Lord tells us to resist Satan and he'll go away. The Devil roams about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1st Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” If the Devil can't devour you in a certain amount of time, he'll move on to someone else. Satan even gave up on tempting the Lord, the greatest target of them all. Matthew 4:10-11, “Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.”

We read in Isaiah 14:12-17, "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?"

The Devil is a malevolent being, who seeks only to hurt and destroy people's lives. Again, this is what 1st Peter 5:8 tells us, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." The Greek word for "devour" means "to make disappear"; hence, Satan wants to either kill you or render you useless for God. 

Notice carefully what the Word of God says concerning Lucifer (Satan)... One day Satan will be cast into the pit of Hell, and we will all see his true colors, i.e., who he really is. The Bible says that we shall look "narrowly" (picture someone squinting their eyes in disbelief). We are all going to surprised when we all see just how little of a weasel, pipsqueak, wimp, and good for nothing liar ... that Satan really is. We will say in disbelief ...

"...Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms...?"

Satan is a Master Liar and Con-artist!

Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. The churches are filled today with sincere religious people, who are merely playing church for all the wrong reasons, foolishly deceived into thinking that they are pleasing God by their own human effort to serve Jesus Christ. We read about this unsaved group in Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Oh, Satan comes to the world as a roaring lion, speaking swelling words of pride, making many promises; BUT, he is a LIAR, and the father of all liars (John 8:44). Here is a lesson on lying ... now pay attention class:

There's a dark magic in boldly lying, in telling a big lie – repeatedly, with a straight face and with confidence and authority.

One of the greatest liars of the last century – Adolph Hitler – taught that the bigger the lie, the more believable it was.

During WWII, the U.S. government's Office of Strategic Services – a precursor to today's CIA – assessed Hitler's methods this way:

"His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it. "(emphasis added)

In his 1925 autobiography "Mein Kampf," Hitler – who actually did lie his country into war, and a whole lot more – explained with remarkable insight the fantastic power of lying:

… [I]n the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes. ...

Let's bring this explanation down to earth with another example: Suppose, right before an election, one candidate accuses his opponent of immoral or illegal behavior. Even if the charges are totally false, and even if the accused answers the charges credibly and effectively, "the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it." Which means, no matter how effectively the accused candidate answers the charges, some people will still believe he's guilty, and many others will still retain varying degrees of doubt and uncertainty regarding the accused, who may well lose the election due to the cloud hanging over his head. This, as Hitler said, is the magic of lying that "is known to all expert liars in this world …" -SOURCE (World Net Daily--Why politicians lie, and why we believe them--April 10, 2006)

What I have just shared with you should cause you to start thinking, and asking many more questions. The average person is woefully ignorant concerning the truth about so many things. 

Here are some thought-provoking truths about the Devil...

Satan is to be avoided as a lion; dreaded as a serpent; but he must be feared as “an angel of light”!

“The Devil did not tempt Adam and Eve to steal, to lie, to kill, to commit adultery; he tempted them to live independent of God.” —Dr. Bob Jones Sr.

“Satan can build a wall around us, and often does, but he can never put a lid on it! SO KEEP LOOKING UP!

Why, the very spelling of the Devil's name shows what he is—Devil, evil, vile, ill, hell! —Pastor Charles Spurgeon

SOURCE: “Punch Lines,” page 37 (here's a partial version of the book on Google)

Don't Let Satan Deceive You and Steal Your Innocence!

2nd Timothy 2:24-26, “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance [metanoia] to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”


Notice carefully that we find the true meaning of repentance unto salvation here in 2nd Timothy 2:25. Repentance is “ACKNOWLEDGING OF THE TRUTH,” that is, it is the admission that I am as guilty a sinner as God hath declared me to be in His holy Word. This is exactly what Dr. Harry Ironside (1876-1951) correctly taught. You won't find anything in the Bible about “repenting from sin” or “turning from sin” to be saved. Biblical repentance (metanoia) is a “change of mind,” which as you just learned compels a man to ACKNOWLEDGE THE TRUTH.

This truth is confirmed when we read Romans 3:19 concerning the PURPOSE of God's law in the Old Testament, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” God says that we are guilty sinners! When a person REPENTS concerning salvation, they stop boasting of their own goodness and their own “many wonderful works” (Matthew 7:21-23), and instead they acknowledge THE TRUTH that they are a hopeless sinner that CANNOT SAVE THEM SELF. The law BRINGS US to Jesus Christ to be saved (Galatians 3:24-26) by faith in the gospel (1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

Having laid the foundation of what Biblical repentance means, please do not be deceived by the plethora of corrupt ministers who falsely teach that repentance means making full surrender to Christ, forsaking the sinful world, turning over a new leaf, ceasing from sinful bad habits and turning away from a lifestyle of sin as PREREQUISITES to placing one's childlike faith in Christ's death upon the cross for our sins, His burial, and His miraculous resurrection from the dead three days later.


2nd Timothy 2:24-26, “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance [metanoia] to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”

I love the holy Bible. We learn in 2nd Timothy 2:24-26 that THE DEVIL takes people CAPTIVE at his will. This refers to unsaved people who have never been born-again by the Holy Spirit of God. 1st Corinthians 2:14 teaches that the NATURAL MAN, that is, the unsaved person, cannot grasp or understand spiritual things, such as is the Word of God in the Bible. By the way, the Bible does not merely contain the Word of God; but rather, THE BIBLE IS THE WORD OF GOD!!! I believe this Bible to be the preserved and inspired KING JAMES BIBLE (not the corrupt “New” King James Bible). The 1611 King James Bible, and it's subsequent revisions (not re-translations) is the only Bible that still upholds Jesus Christ's deity, Godhead and preeminence.

Lions use their roar as a device to intimidate their victims, and it is very effective. Just as the “Great Oz,” in The Wizard of Oz movie (1939), who fabricated a false scary image to intimidate others, so does Satan try to intimidate us; BUT, he is just a little coward behind the curtain. Satan is a wimp, a low-life thug, who will do anything in his power to corrupt and destroy. Jesus warned us in John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy...” The Word of God has nothing good to say about Satan! 

The context of 2nd Timothy 2:24-26 is DOCTRINE. Satan takes even more people captive through doctrinal error and deception, than he does through immoral sex, booze, drug abuse and many forms of wickedness. Sin is always a trap. A person may sin again and again and nothing seemingly bad happens, but sin ALWAYS has a price, one way or another. Ecclesiastes 8:12, “Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him.” It may seem like Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones, and a million other wicked sinners have outmaneuvered the wages of sin, having enjoyed their lives to the fullest without paying for their sins; but the Bible says their day is coming! Psalms 50:22, “Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.” Psalms 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” No one ever gets away with sin. Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”

The worst threat to the world is not homosexuality, abortion or drug abuse; but rather, the doctrines of devils being taught in nearly every institution, religion and organization on earth. YOU ARE A SINNER! Unless you receive Christ's payment for your sins by His precious blood, you will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire!!! Nearly every religion corrupts the simplicity of salvation by teaching Lordship Salvation (partial faith in Christ), works salvation, baptismal regeneration, sacramental salvation and other form of self-righteousness. The Bible teaches in Romans 4:5 that A MAN'S FAITH IS COUNTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS!

Notice also in 2nd Timothy 2:24 that the Lord doesn't want us getting into heated debates, fighting over doctrine and unprofitable debates that shed more heat than light. This does not mean that we should be pacifists and remain silent when we see doctrinal error. God forbid! Ephesians 5:11 commands us to refute (Greek: elencho, to expose) all of Satan's works of darkness. Titus 1:10-13 commands us to SHARPLY REBUKE false prophets! You can twist the Bible to justify nearly ANYTHING if you're willing to take individual Scripture passages out of context. Taking a Bible verse out of context creates a pretext, that is, the basis for a false doctrine. The correct way to study and dissect (rightly divide) the Bible is by comparing Scripture with Scripture. If any particular interpretation doesn't agree with all the other Scriptures in the Bible, then you know it is an inaccurate interpretation.

Satan often tries to intimidate people with lies! We should NEVER compromise our moral standards! Many mothers have woefully made the decision to have their child murdered in an abortion, due to the intimidating pressure exerted upon them, and lies told, by a Planned Parenthood (Herodhood) counselor. Many young women have allowed themselves to be sexually defiled, by the intimidating lies of an evil man, who promised her rainbows; BUT, instead delivered heartache, betrayal, and loneliness. The deceiver comes to the young woman, just like the Devil, saying ... “If you really love me, then you'll let me go all the way.” No, if you really love someone, then you will respect the sacredness of the bed (Hebrews 13:4) and wait for God's timing.

The unsaved world lives like the Devil. In the sinful world, married people live like they're single, and single people live like they're married. Marriage is like a fireplace. A fireplace is beautiful as long as you keep the fire where it belongs, but if the fire gets outside of the fireplace it'll burn your house down! Likewise, sex is the fire in a marriage. If you get that fire outside of your marriage, it'll burn your life up! Satan wants to ruin your life. The surest way to destroy a teenager's life is to get them involved in premarital sex and the girl's pregnant before they even finish highschool.

I get letters from witches, homosexuals, and others, all the time, who state, "If you really love people, then you won't preach against their sins." However, nothing could be further from the truth. It is because I love people that I do preach the Word of God, contend for the faith, and defend the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word. Hell is real, the consequences of sin are severe, and people need to be warned.

The man who truly loves a woman, will not try to intimidate and pressure her to commit immorality. Sex is only acceptable within the God-given bounds of marriage! All premarital or extramarital sex is sinful. God wants a lifetime commitment between a man and a woman before they have sex. The godless world promotes one-night stands, shacking up, and even legal prostitution in places like Nevada. It is an abomination unto God, and the work of Satan. Don't ever let Satan intimidate you into doing anything wrong.

The Catholic Church is massive, boasting a membership of over 1,000,000,000 people. This intimidates many people. Surely so many people couldn't be wrong? The Pope, and the archbishops, and others, speak in Latin--as if they know something we all don't. They dress in their extravagant religious garb, and perform all sorts of ceremonies--as if they are truly God's servants. Tragically, people are far more afraid of these imposters, than they are of God Almighty. Many people follow Catholicism because they are afraid to die, and they sincerely believe that the Pope must be right. But I tell you my friend ... The Pope is a dope and he has no hope! The Pope is the vicar of Hell, NOT Heaven! I say this, not to be unkind; but because I speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15). Don't you let those Satanic infidels deceive you into Hell.

Satan is An Evil Spirit, Not the Holy Spirit

Any spirit that is not the Holy Spirit is a familiar spirit (demon). There are only two sources of spiritual power: God and Satan. All power which Satan posses was given to him by God (Luke 4:6). It is interesting that Ephesians 2:2 calls the Devil THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR. All of the evils being broadcast through television, wireless internet, mass communication and radio pass THROUGH THE AIR.

Satan is a spirit and; therefore, has the power of spiritual influence upon mankind, who is also a spirit (but encompassed within a fleshly body). This is the great danger in worldly movies, video games, music, and other avenues through which Satan's spirit WILL influence us. Many young people, who saw no harm in listening to rock-n-roll music, one day found themselves living in all sorts of sexual sins (which is the underlying foundation of rock music). Rock 'N' Roll is a religion of immoral sex, substance abuse and fleshly sensual music. Satan is extremely deceitful, and will always sugarcoat his maggot-infested delights. Satan will always show you the neon lights of Las Vegas; BUT, he won't show you the victims suffering from venereal disease, the victims who commit suicide, the victims who gamble their home away, or the female victims who lose their soul and dignity to immorality. A godly woman wouldn't allow her virtue to be defiled for all the wealth, fame, pleasures or power in the world. Such godly women are becoming very hard to find nowadays. Thank God for praying mamas! We are living in some dark times! My friend, there is a high price for low living!!!

Satan is a spirit, and his destructive spirit is prevalent in Hollywood, rock n' roll music, television, Walt Disney, the newsmedia, video games, country music, contemporary Christian music, the Godless public school system, the lies of Evolution, heathen universities, modern corrupt Bibles, the Jesus' Papers, The Da Vinci Code, Oprah Winfrey, Sylvia Browne, John Edward, feminism, Dr. Phil, most religion, et cetera. Satan is always good for nothing, and up to something. We can escape Satan's attacks, if we will do as the Bible instructs us, that is, RESIST STEDFAST IN THE FAITH. 1st Peter 5:9, “Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” This means we need to be grounded solid in the Word of God. Accurate Biblical interpretation is known as “sound doctrine.” Satan wants to sift (beat to a pulp) every believer as wheat, just as Jesus told Peter (Luke 22:31). Jesus Warned Peter Satan Wanted Him, To Sift Him As Wheat (a picture's worth 1,000 words). We would be wise to live for God. The alternative is to become enslaved by the consequences of sin (John 8:34). 

Many people, rotting behind prison bars, are learning this truth the hard way.  Many women, who aborted their own flesh and blood years ago, are now tearfully regretting the abortion.  Many parents, who abused their children, now have to feel the guilt every time they see their adult children, and the grandkids.  Many people, who indulged in immoral sexual pleasures, are now taking drugs for the rest of their life to combat herpes (which has no cure).  Others have AIDS, to which there is also no cure.  Oh how the Devil lies to people, promising rainbows; but, delivering misery, emotional pain, and loss of health.  The biggest lies, are the most believable

If you want to identify Satan in the world, then you must look for his spirit (Ephesians 2:2).

Satan Always Appears as a Good Guy, But He is a Lying Murderer!

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." -2nd Corinthians 11:13-14

Contrary to all the images of Satan having horns, a pitchfork, and a tail; Satan appears as an angel of God. This is critically important to understanding the Word of God, and demonism. Now the Bible does make mention a pitchfork with three hooks used by the priests of Satan, which is likely where the idea of a devil with a pitchfork comes from...

1st Samuel 2:12-13, “Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD. And the priests' custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand.”

Albeit, we learn in 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15 that Satan TRANSFORMS himself into an ANGEL OF LIGHT to trick people. Satan is a deceiver, intending to hurt you in every way he can. The only will of Satan for your life is to prevent you from obeying God. Satan has single people living like they're married, and married people living like they're single, turning everything backwards. The Devil is a monster!!! Never trust the Devil or the Devil's crowd!

Ironically, most people in the world today are following Satanic deceptions, which APPEAR as being of God; but they are of the Devil. One such organization is Planned Parenthood, which appears to be helping women; but, they are mass-murderers according to the Bible. 

Another Satanic organization is the Catholic Church--which bows to idols, venerates (worships) dead saints, idolizes Mary, prays vain repetitions, teaches works salvation, and blasphemously teaches that their priests have the power to forgive sin. The world is filled with such demonic false religions, who are leading the masses into Hell. Islam is another damnable organization, who denies Jesus Christ. Don't believe the lie, not for one second—that Muslims and Christians worship the SAME God. No, we don't! The Korah clearly states in, The Women 4.171, that God has NO Son. In sharp contrast, John 3:16 in the Word of God declares that God DOES have a Son, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The Koran even goes as far as to claim that Jesus never died, nor was He crucified (The Women, 4.157).  Clearly, Islam and Christianity are DIAMETRICALLY opposed.  Yet, the Devil comes to us through MANY false prophets today, even President George W. Bush, who falsely claims that Christians and Muslims worship the SAME God.  Allah is a pagan god, who has no son.  Jesus Christ is Almighty God (John 10:33; Revelation 1:8), the second Person of the Godhead (John 1:1-3,10; Matthew 28:19-20), the Christ (Luke 2:11), and He is the Son of God (John 3:16)!  1st John 4:14 declares, "And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world."  What are you Muslims talking about?

Have you believed a lie?  The world is saturated with false religions, Satanic lies, demonic deceptions, doctrines of devils, and all deceivableness of unrighteousness.  The answer friend, is the Truth!  We read in 2nd Thessalonians 2:9-10, "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

What a powerful Scripture! Do you love the truth? Or do you aimlessly follow the traditions of Catholicism, the damnable heresies of the Seventh-Day Adventists, the cursed doctrines of the Mormons, the devilish teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses, the blasphemies of Orthodox Catholicism, the Satanic lies of Scientology, the Amish cult, the hellish beliefs of Buddhism, the lies of Hinduism, the Luciferian occult of Freemasonry, or the damnable doctrines of Lordship Salvation and Eternal Insecurity?  What do you believe?  I believe that the Bible is God's Word, and is the Final Authority!

Ways For a Christian To Be Influenced by Satan

Now to be sure, no born-again believer can be demon possessed, because the believer's BODY is the temple of the Holy Spirit of God (1st Corinthians 3:16-17). 1st John 4:4-5, “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. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.” Although a believer cannot be possessed by a devil (demon), a believer CAN BE influenced by demons.

Here's three things that can open doors to demonic influence:

    • Immoral Sex (Mary Magdalene was a former prostitute, from whom Jesus cast out seven devils)
    • A Wrong Spirit (Peter tried to hinder Jesus from dying on the cross, for which Jesus told him, “Get thee behind me Satan!”)
    • Substance Abuse (Consider Lot's incest with his daughters while he was drunk, impregnating them both)
    • Worldly Music (when Moses came down from the mount, the Hebrews were dancing naked to Rock music “noise”)

  2. FALSE BIBLES (One of the biggest deceptions in the churches today are satanic Bible versions. Oh, how Satan is a beautiful liar! If I were the Devil I'd do exactly what he has been doing since 1881, publishing hundreds of counterfeit Bible versions. Did you know that there is only one LITERAL word-for-word translation of the Bible today in English? That is the beloved KING JAMES BIBLE!!! I have dedicated the rest of my earthly life to proclaiming the inspiration of the King James Bible, and fighting against the satanic Alexandrian versions which are destroying the churches!!! ALL of the modern Bible PERversions attack the deity of Jesus, pervert the plan of salvation, teach wrong repentance and horribly corrupt many doctrines.)

  3. FALSE PROPHETS (Paul asked the Galatian believers who had “bewitched” them? Galatians 3:1-2, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? The apostle Paul only wanted to know how the Galatians got saved—Did you do the works of the LAW; or did you place your faith (trust) in the Gospel when you heard it preached? The former is damnation, the latter is salvation. Here we clearly see the clarity and simplicity of THE GOSPEL. We are saved the moment we BELIEVE the Gospel message. It is that simple to be born-again!!!!!!!

  4. FALSE TEACHINGS (1st Timothy 4:1, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”). The Bible calls forbidding to marry and abstaining from eating meats “DOCTRINES OF DEVILS” (1st Timothy 4:1-3). The PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) group who ban eating meat and the vegetarian movement are unbiblical, as taught in 1st Timothy 4:1-3. If you choose not to eat meat for health reasons, that's ok; but if you criticize others for eating meat, or say that it is wrong, you have a devil in you! The Roman Catholic church forbids eating certain meats on Friday, which is a doctrine of devils the Bible says. There are MANY false doctrines in the churches today; such as, Zionism (manmade Israel) and a Young Earth heresy. I have noticed that 99% of church congregations these days merely follow whatever their pastor(s) teaches, without doing their own research, which is not noble at all. Acts 17:11, “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” You're a fool if you don't go home and verify what your pastor tells you from the pulpit, because he could be very wrong, and even send you to Hell.

How To Expose and Fight Against Satan!

Although Satan appears as the good guy, the sure way to expose him every time without fail, is with the Light of God's Word—the Holy Bible. The best way to expose the darkness, is to shine the Lamp of God's Word upon it. This is why the world walks in darkness, because they shine everything EXCEPT the Word of God upon the works of Satan. The reason why is found in John 3:20, "For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." And also in 1st John 5:19, "And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness."

My son recently witnessed to a Catholic man, who refused to get saved. My son came to me later, frustrated, and told me that no matter what he said, the Catholic man would twist the Bible to justify his misconceptions of the truth. I told my son that many people are stubborn, and no matter what we show them, even if we can PROVE our position, they still won't believe. Why? Because people love their religious traditions (Mark 7:6-13). Catholics are some of the hardest people in the world to win to Jesus Christ, because the Catholic religion is extremely materialistic (which appeals to those who have no faith in God). From the cradle to the casket, Catholicism has a ritual. Every Catholic is wholeheartedly trusting in their religion to save them; but, they are all Hellbound in their sins, without Christ.

I could write a lengthy book concerning Satan—a literal individual being who hates God, and tries to destroy everything dear to God. Satan is not your friend, and neither are those who follow Satan in this world. Tragically, most of Satan's followers are religious people. Yes, it is crazy; but, it is nevertheless true! The Antichrist is coming, and he will appear as a dynamic, charming and powerful political leader, and the masses will love him. Satan will influence and control him entirely. The coming “MAN OF SIN,” the “BEAST” (or “ANTICHRIST”) will worship the “GOD OF FORCES” (New Age religious philosophy)... Daniel 11:38, “But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.” Thankfully, the true Church, the Body of Christ, will be removed from the world before the Antichrist appears (2nd Thessalonians 2:7). MOST religious people will NOT be taken at the Rapture, because (as I mentioned) most people have religion without truth, and churchianity without Christianity. That is, they are not saved, so they will be LEFT BEHIND.

Are you saved my friend? That is, have you ever been born again? You can KNOW 100% beyond any shadow of a doubt that your name is written in Heaven in the Lamb's Book of Life. If you don't KNOW that you are saved, something is very wrong. I KNOW that I am born-again, having an eternal home in Heaven. I KNOW that I presently have eternal life, and that I have the indwelling Holy Spirit living inside of me. 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” Thank God for His blessed Holy Spirit!!!!!!!

A Happy Christian Is A Strong Christian; A Sad Christian Is A Weak Christian!
The Devil Hates Christians Who Are Happy!
Pastor Danny Castle, "UNCLEAN SPIRITS"

1st Corinthians 1:18, “For the preaching of the cross is to them that
perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

“But I do believe we see the setting of a stage today, when action will begin when the Church is removed from this earth. Now the reason the date's not given here is that the Church is dateless, nameless, timeless. You see, we are heavenly people—have no name, but some of you folk thought it was Baptist, and some others of you thought that the name of the Church was Presbyterian, and even some of you thought it was Methodist, and some of you thought it was Independent; but I have news for you, the Church has no name!”
