SATANIC TEMPLE Offers Scholarships to High School Grads

If the reader has any doubts about who is causing the mass chaos in America, the title of this article should clarify the source of the insanity.

The headline I read just before this one was:

Churches Sue Governor Newsom for Banning In-home Bible Studies     <click to read Christianpost.com article


   

We’ve been told “No singing in church services.”  Actually, Governor Newsom is banning all indoor church services and now in-home Bible studies as well.  But he is encouraging “protests” in the streets, even though he knows that the so-called protests always escalate into riots. 

He has no problem with that.

I wonder if unbelieving neighbors in CA will turn in Christians if they hear worship songs coming from homes?  This is no joke, brethren. God haters relish the thought of bringing harm of any kind to Christians.

Satanic Temple offers scholarships to high school grads

SALEM, Mass. (AP) — The Satanic Temple is launching a college scholarship for high school students.

The Salem, Massachusetts-based group, which advocates for stricter separation of church and state, among other civil rights issues, said Tuesday that the $500 “Devil’s Advocate Scholarship” is open to any 2020 graduate.

To apply, students must answer one of two questions. One asks applicants to describe what they’ve done to promote the organization’s tenets and mission. The other asks them to describe a teacher who “crushed your spirit, undermined your self-confidence, and made you hate every minute you were forced to be in school.”

Malcolm Jarry, the organization’s co-founder said the scholarship aims to draw attention to the problems of compulsory education.

He said the Satanic Temple is opposed to mandatory schooling because it “violates students’ fundamental civil rights and ingrains obedience to unearned authority.”

The scholarships, Jarry said, “serve to reward those who embrace individualism, empathy, free-thought, and skepticism toward the oppressive institution they were forced to endure.”

The organization says applicants can respond in an essay, poem, film, or other creative medium.

Applications will be accepted until Aug. 31. Winners will be announced in September and their works will be displayed on the Satanic Temple’s website. source

Obviously, the offer of winning $500 for a scholarship is not really the point. The caveat is to recruit more followers for Satan. The devil watches the riots and killing in the streets; he knows that these vulnerable young minds are ripe for the picking.

We know that the people on the streets are unbelievers, but it is a different thing entirely for a person to pledge their allegiance to Satan.  Think about the coming Tribulation. Some during that time will become Tribulation Saints. Although they will be hunted down and beheaded by Antichrist, their souls will be in heaven when they die.

Those who worship Satan this side of Tribulation will most likely take the mark of the Beast gladly and swiftly. They will be sealing their fate to be cast into hell with Satan and his fallen angels for eternity.

The RAGE of the Evil one

One only has to look at our cities to have a glimpse of the explosive rage of Satan in these last days. Followers of Jesus know that the devil knows Scripture better than most people.

Remember when Satan tempted our Lord in the wilderness?

Luke 4:1-13

“And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.

 And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 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.  If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is  written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:  And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.”

Think of the audacity of Satan to tempt the Lord of Glory.  Satan knows exactly who Jesus is, yet that did not stop him from attempting to end our Lord’s mission here on earth.
 
 
If the evil one did this to the Son of God, certainly he will draw in as many souls as he can. He knows his time is short.
 
Brethren, if you have family or friends who are unbelievers, and they have been persuaded to join the demonic forces on the streets of our cities – show them this article.  If even one soul is brought back from believing the lies – isn’t that worth it?
 
This is not a time for shrinking back. If ever there was a time for Christians to be bold in their witness to the unbelieving world, it is now.
 
 
 
Shalom b’Yeshua
 
MARANATHA!!

Chapter 5

“I’m not sure the rest of us would agree with you,'” Tyce said, glancing toward Marial, who conversed with the others.
“What do you think, Tyce? Do you sense this…vanishing…will actually happen?”
Greyson paused to reflect on the network executive’s query.
“All I can say is that this one had a completely different feel…That is, it was more…eerie, I guess. It was more surreal than the others. More ethereal.”
“It has already gone wild on social media. Everyone in media and the government are after me to let them at you.”
“Well, don’t let them…at me.”
“No. Don’t worry. let’s just get on with filming the documentary. The suspense and intrigue will build. This was the best thing that could happen for the promotion of the series,” Bressnick said.
Greyson spoke in a somber tone after a few moments of silence. “If what I saw during this…if it actually happens…I’m not sure the documentary series, or anything else will matter too much.”

Marial looked out the helicopter’s window, seeing the Aegean sprawl 14,000 feet below. Spiney ridges of the small Cyclades chain protruded from the cobalt blueness like the humps of a gigantic sea serpent.
“Patmos is that larger one, there,” Tyce said loud enough to be heard over the thumping of the helicopter. He leaned near her to point to a large mass of gray jutting from the Aegean.
Marial looked out the window then at him.” Are you nervous, going back to where this all started?”
“Only thing I’m nervous about is that episode last night. I don’t know what it means…”
“The last one of the…episodes…didn’t happen. The bomb exploding off North Carolina’s coast. Maybe this one won’t come to pass.”
“But, the vision seemed to clarify why the bomb didn’t go off. The word Spared , that appeared after the scene of the people in prayer…The voice saying that their prayers were the reason…”
“Well, the people were praying in the vision last night, weren’t they” she said, leaning against his arm and laying her face against his shoulder.
Her warmth somehow calmed his uncertainty about the prediction –about the trip to the strange cavern where it all began.

Stravos’ broadly beaming smile greeted them when the huge blades stopped turning and they walked down the steps from the helicopter’s doorway.
“Mister Tyce!”
The small Greek waved to get Greyson’s attention.
Stravos grabbed the journalist’s hand and shook it vigorously with both hands.
“You have a good flight, yes?”
“Any flight in which you get back down safely is a good one,” Tyce said, returning the Greek’s smile.
Stravos smile widened even more, his attention turning to the woman at Greyson’s side when he was introduced to her.
“This is Marial Gunn,” he said while Marial put out her hand to take that of Stravos. “She will be working on the documentary with us.”
“She your woman?” Stravos said, continuing to smile and hold her hand.
“No,” Marial sighed in feigned disappointment. “Just his associate.”
“Ah! Yes…Welcome to Patmos,” Stravos said, seemingly oblivious to her words.
“The truck is here, as you see,” Stravos said, waving his hand at the big vehicle behind him. “This will carry all of your equipment. And, I have men who will move it up the mountain. They will work very cheap.”
Greyson put his arm around Stravos’ shoulders. “I worked it out so you and your men will be well paid for helping in everything we do while on Patmos. I’ll tell you all about it a little later.”
The Greek said nothing, but smiled while looking down while they walked and nodding his head, obviously pleased at what he heard.
“Have you been up to the cave yet?” Tyce said while they rode in Stravos’ van that moved along the rough road ahead of the truck.
“Yes. We have made certain the serpents are not there,” the Greek said, matter-of-factly.
Tyce laughed. “That’s good…That’s very good!”
“Yes, that is good,” Marial said with enthusiastic agreement.
Their amusement seemed lost on Stravos, who took it as compliment while concentrating on the road ahead…

Tyce sat on the stone of the flat stone below the larger slab of natural formation. He looked out the cave opening, down the mountainside to the long, gray-brown beach. The Aegean lay beyond for as far as could be visually determined.
He alternately, between times of looking at the Mediterranean vista, read the script held in his hands.
He would have to memorize only a small portion –for moments during the filming when the cameras were on him. The rest he would read as narrative to be the voice over for the many intriguing shots the film crews hoped to capture.
But, he reminded himself, he must always read the voice over portions with the same, conversational cadence and tone as when on camera.
“We’re about ready to do a test or two,” one of the crew said from near the small entrance to the upper cave room.
“I’m about ready, too,” Greyson responded, looking in the direction of the man. His eyes went automatically to the ledge above the cave opening. The ledge where the snake had latched onto his hand.
He shivered inwardly. It was a ledge that had been in his nightmares since…
“Tyce!”
Marial’s face appeared in the opening. There was anxiety in her voice.
“It’s happened!”
“What?…What’s happened,” he said, hurrying to duck, then follow her through the opening when she retreated.
“It’s Bressnick,” she said, handing him the satellite phone.
“Tyce Greyson,” he answered.
“Tyce. It’s actually happened! People…People everywhere…all over the world, apparently…”
“What? What happened?”
“They’ve disappeared…Vanished!”…
