Yesterday, when I first posted this, I felt that a lot of this article may have crossed over to what “man” says and not necessarily what GOD says in his Holy Word.
This morning I received an email from a reader and I want to post it here. This was conformation that something was not quite right. Here is the email:
“Dear Geri, I fell into “taking territory back from the enemy of our soul” a number of years ago, and it didn’t take long to realize that Scripture has NO examples of the apostles doing this or anyone else doing it. We are called to BE witnesses and Salt and Light. The only thing that really matters right now is praying for the Salvation of souls and sharing the Gospel. I view “taking back territory” as a major time sink and a cunning trap to get true Christians not to spend as much time on winning souls. The earth is the Lord’s; He did Not relinquish it to satan. Much Love to you! And Thank you once again for posting all this info. Deb“
Brethren, I edited the original article to reflect what we as believers should do when confronted with Satan’s minions. If you want to see the original article, you can click on the link. But be assured that I agree 100% with the email from Deb. I was not being a Berean and for that I ask the readership’s forgiveness!
It is not an understatement to call this a battle of good and evil. It literally is. And on Friday, February 11, satanists from across the world will converge on Scottsdale, Arizona and for three days conduct rituals, services, celebrations, and more debauched and evil events. It’s SatanCon from February 11-13. The satanists chose to locate their conference in Scottsdale as a push back against the city for declining their request to deliver a satanic invocation before the Scottsdale City Council meeting.
The organizers of the satanic conference say that they want people to think of Satan when they think of Scottsdale. This gathering of satanic followers is more than just payback to Scottsdale. The Satanic church, with apparently over half a million members, is involved in civic activities such as pro-abortion lobbying—especially pushing back on the new pro-life legislation and sanctuary cities for the unborn in nearby Texas. The Satanic Temple After School Clubs meet in elementary and secondary schools across the nation. A new Satanic streaming service being introduced will increase the reach of their beliefs, rituals, and activities.
The SatanCon event is open also to the public, hoping to entice inquiring minds to open up to the products and activities in the SatanCon Marketplace. Visitors can also participate in the late-night “Impurity Ball” satanic ritual. No doubt there will be many people attending for the sake of spectacle and intrigue, and who may find that their curiosity comes at a price with the demonic activity summoned at an event such as this.
That is why we must pray.
Update: There are more satanic events that are popping up blatantly in our nation. There is an evil “cirque de solei” style circus making its way across the country, “Paranormal Cirque–a wicked performance of European style.” They have performances scheduled in Florida and Georgia according to their website as well as other American cities. Please be praying about this demonic roaming event which carries an R-rated warning and features Baphomet and other satanic symbols throughout.
We heard from several IFA intercessors who felt the lead of the Holy Spirit to share discernment about this SatanCon event with IFA. This is from Carol, an IFA intercessor:
There will be other groups there which could become confrontational, so pray for the love of Jesus to be shed abroad through our hearts and that peace would flow like a river from believers. Overcome evil with good.
On Saturday, maybe drive by and verbally confirm the dedication.
Brethren, this truly IS a war between GOOD and EVIL!
Remember that although we know that greater is HE who is in us than he that is in the world, that these are Rulers of Darkness are powerful.
“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).
REMEMBER to put on the full armor of God:
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” (Ephesians 6:10-18)
