satanism

Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short. (Revelation 12:12)

There is an estimated 800 Satanic cults in the United States, along with over 600,000 followers. In a 1993 study that was created to evaluate ritual abuse found that in 2,292 alleged ritual abuse cases,15% of the perpetrators in adult cases and 30% of the perpetrators in child cases confessed to the abuse and were connected to a satanic cult or coven.  [Brown, Scheflin and Hammond (1998).”Memory, Trauma Treatment, And the Law” (W. W. Norton)]  The reality is, the growth in occult activity is on an increasing trend within our society, and to most we do not see it nor understand it when the signs around us begin to warn us that something dark and sinister is occurring – until it’s too late.

In a survey of 2,709 members of the American Psychological Association, it was found that 30 percent of these professionals had seen cases of ritual or religion-related abuse (Bottoms, Shaver & Goodman, 1991). Of those psychologists who have seen cases of ritual abuse, 93 percent believed that the reported harm took place and 93 percent believed that the alleged ritualism occurred. [“Ritual Abuse: A Review of Research” by Kathleen Coulborn Faller (1994)]

From cult ritual sacrifice in recent weeks (source) (source) to cult celebration and/or glorification (source) within the music industry as well as the film and television industry with such artists as Katy Perry and the movie OUIJA, it’s apparent that a subtle darkness for occult interest is making a rise just as it did in the 1970’s, where satanic themes permeated throughout Hollywood as well as the culture of its day. So just what is causing this increasing interest in the occult and satanism? I believe it’s because of the spirit of the age, the same spirit behind Nimrod, the same spirit behind Ahab, the same spirit behind the Babylonian’s, the same spirit behind Hitler as well as Stalin – the spirit of antichrist.

It was Anton LaVey and his satanic vision to bring about the first “church” of Satan on April 30th, 1966. It’s fitting that it was LaVey who used April 30th as the date to establish his “church” since April 30th (not Halloween) happens to be the most highest day on the occultist calendar which is called Walpurgis Night. Walpurgis is an ancient word taken from the German word Walpurgisnacht. In German folklore Walpurgisnacht is believed to be the night of a witches’ meeting on the Brocken, the highest peak in the Harz Mountains, a range of wooded hills in central Germany between the rivers Weser and Elbe. Walpurgis Night are observed across Europe in the Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Finland and Estonia. Needless to say, while most Christians take exception to Halloween (as they should) they fail to realize that one of the most darkest occult times and seasons in our calender year is in fact April 30th. Never forget that.

Satanism is not only expanding from the secret club of the stereotypical attributes once associated with those who participated in this underground mesh of occult worship and activity, it’s almost become commonplace within our community, although still not to a degree where name tags are given out declaring ones allegiance, but allegiance just the same is held by many, and the list of those who are apart of the “Satanic club” would be surprising to many who would desire to open up the pages of the membership rolls. Names of past membership include Jimmy Hendrix, Sammy Davis Jr., Elvis Presley, Jayne Mansfield, Kenneth Anger, Marilyn Manson, Richard Ramirez, and Liberace. But the list does not end there. Many popular Satanists today, or those who are closely associated with Satanism within the music industry are quite well known in this current generation, artists such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyonce’, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Madonna and Keisha.

But it doesn’t end with our popular artists, which there are many more, the growth of this secret order goes deeper, deeper into the political structure far beyond a group of disillusioned teenagers, it goes to the White House, the U.S. Senate, and the House of Representatives. It’s mark can be found in some of our most distinguished halls of education such as Harvard as well as Yale, raising up Presidential leadership, to even the military. The reach of this coven of darkness where membership is guided by fear and the promise of power, can even be traced to our religious institutions such as Mormonism, as well as Catholicism. Even the Vatican has its occult skeletons.

Men such as Jack Parsons (NASA founder) and even well known contributors to our news agencies such as Fox News with men such as military analyst and Fox News contributor Paul Vallely, a retired general, as a military affairs commentator. Vallely co-authored a tract with a Col. Michael Aquino, who was a practicing satanist. Mr. Aquino performed black magic ceremonies along with Vallely at the castle Wewelsburg castle  in Germany where Heinrich Himmler held rituals for his cult. The deep ties to occultism are widening, not closing in our neighborhood, our City and towns, our nation nor the world, it is screaming to the church “We are rising” and we best be listening.

All of this, the rampant growth in interest in genuine occultism, books, games, the rise of occult related murders, rapes and torture. Across the world the symbol of Satanism is placing itself at the center of man’s allegiance, the allegiance to self, which is one of the tenants of the church of Satan – the worship of self. So it’s not only reasonable to understand why high level artists and sports figures, musicians and playrights owe their allegiance to the devil, but also Government world leaders. Satanic symbols or numbers, animal sacrifices, grave robberies, ritualistic child abuse (some satanic groups require molestation of children for initiation), these are all aspects of a declaration of Satan declaring of his soon coming child, the man of sin, otherwise known as antichrist, is soon to be born upon this earth.

The word of God gives us a clear and ever present warning that says that in the last days, a form of wickedness will sweep the world, conditioning all who would listen and follow its core values to serve only one – the man of sin. Occult researcher and well known expert Gregory Reid states why this is all occurring in these last days, “I believe that the rise in satanic activity is the spiritual Equivalent of a demonic John the Baptist preparing the way for the antichrist in sacrificial blood.”  I echo this as well.

Everything we are seeing is the preparation of a time where one man, a creation of Satan himself, will arrive upon this world, bringing with him the necessary belief to discard the faith of almighty God, but lift himself up as God. Satanism is not only real, it’s growing at an alarming rate, it’s prophets are mediums, psychics such as John Edward, Theresa Caputo (Long Island Medium), and so many others, all are rising up in one accord, echoing of this coming dark Lord. The church needs to be aware of this and ready it’s rod of faith, using the sword of truth, for only the word of God, combined with the power of the Holy Spirit, will we defeat this power of darkness.

But a warning they are indeed sounding, so let me share with you the reader one comment from Paul Vallely, Satanist and Government official, ” We have but to reach out and seize this tool; and it can transform the world for us if we have but the courage and the integrity to guide civilization with it. If we do not accept Excalibur, then we relinquish our ability to inspire foreign cultures with our morality. If they then devise moralities unsatisfactory to us, we have no choice but to fight them on a more brutish level. And it should be: It is a term of attack and victory-not one of rationalization and coaxing and conciliation. The enemy may be offended by it; that is quite all right as long as he is defeated by it. A definition is offered: Mindwar is the deliberate, aggressive convincing of all participants in a war that we will win that war.”‘
