“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).
The Lord deemed it important enough to warn us of our enemy, the devil, and his legions of demons. Often we think that the evil happening around us is inflicted on us by other people. That may be true at times. But when the attack is so blatantly evil, and its purpose is to undermine the Word of God and the Lord Himself, we can be sure that this originates from “spiritual wickedness in high places.”
There is an organization called “Freedom from Religion.” They are bent on removing anything from the Word of God which is displayed on public property. I’ve said many times in my articles that it amazes me that these people who claim that there is no God, are so adamant about the removal of Words from our Holy Bible; and in the next breath they brazenly assert that God is a myth. Why would a myth upset them? I’ll tell you why. They are not atheists at all. They are God haters and Satanists. Why else would there be a push to place the horrifying statues of their depiction of Satan right next to the Ten Commandments?
THE ORIGIN OF LUCIFER
Most of these God haters consider Satan, whom they refer to as Lucifer, their god. To them he is the enlightened one – the original rebel, to whom they elevate and give their worship. The Wiccans and Pagans on the earth, all look to their Lucifer for wisdom and knowledge.
Now I have been reading that the Luciferians are claiming that their god was in existence before the God and Creator of the Universe! They are taking their cues from their leader, Lucifer who is by nature a liar.
Another description that the Word gives of Satan/Lucifer is a deceiver and author of confusion. He certainly lives up to the names given to him by our
Father. The name “Satan” means adversary or opponent in Hebrew. He was aptly named by our Lord.
So, as my title asks – why erect statues of satan if a person has no belief in God? Think about it. Most atheists will tell you that we live, we die and we are buried; no afterlife. It is so obvious that this is not truly in their hearts. They hate our God and their worship of the evil one speaks volumes of that hatred.
OKLAHOMA: A SPIRITUAL BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL
From News Channel 4 in Oklahoma:
OKLAHOMA CITY – After the decision by the Oklahoma Supreme Court to remove the Ten Commandments Monument outside the state Capitol, the Satanic Temple is now looking for another home for its Baphomet monument.
In 2012, Rep. Mike Ritze paid for the installation of a Ten Commandments Monument at the Oklahoma State Capitol’s front lawn.
Since he paid for the Commandments himself, it was classified as a donation and was allowed to be placed on government property.
After the Ten Commandments Monument was placed at the Oklahoma Capitol, the Satanic Temple announced that it wanted to donate a public monument to “complement and contrast” the monument on the grounds.
The proposed Baphomet monument features the devil in goat form.
“We decided to go with that because it is a fairly traditional character,” said Lucien Greaves, with The Satanic Temple. “It also offers a lap that visitors can come to sit on, have their picture taken with.”
When the Ten Commandments Monument was destroyed last year, the Satanic Temple said it would stop its plans of building a statue if the monument was not rebuilt.
Rep. Ritze decided to replace the monument, which meant the Satanic Temple would continue to fight for placement at the Capitol.
Earlier this week, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled that the Ten Commandments Monument must be removed from the state Capitol.
Since it will no longer be in place, the Satanic Temple is now forced to look for a new home for Baphomet. 
GEORGIA GUIDE STONES AND THE SATANIC TEN COMMANDMENTS
In 1980, in Elbert County, GA, an ominous granite statue was erected, It is called the Georgia Guide Stones. It has been called America’s Stonehenge. On this structure is carved 10 commandments. These commandments are certainly not the ones received by Moses on the mountain by the Hand of God.
I believe that the commandments on the Georgia Guide Stones is straight from Satan, and will be the commandments of the Antichrist.
Here they are:
1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely—improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule Passion—Faith—Tradition—and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth—beauty—love—seeking harmony with the infinite.
10. Be not a cancer on the earth—Leave room for nature—Leave room for nature.
Do I really need to add commentary here about these commandments?
To any child of the Living God, it should be so clear that these words come straight from the mouth of the enemy of our souls. He has become brazen as never before.
He is set for battle, and perhaps has deluded even himself into thinking that he
will, in the end, defeat Almighty God.
Brethren, we know the truth from the Word of God. But many unbelievers are
mesmerized and deluded by Satan and his arrogance. The Strong Delusion is
being sent by God Himself.
“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 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. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2: 7-12).
We are close to the end. It really does not take a Bible scholar to discern this. Just know that all of these things, though disconcerting, must happen to fulfill His Word. He is with us. Stay strong always in Him.
God tells us all through His Word to “Fear not” and at this late hour, we must remember to trust in Him. Cling to Him and His Holy Word. All truth is found there.
See you soon at the Wedding!
