The devil and his demons offer a strange new world where good is evil and evil is good. Will you reject Satan's lies, or fall victim to his deceptions?
Long ago, the archangel Lucifer rebelled and became Satan, the "Adversary" of God. Ever since, this evil being has worked hard to destroy God's creation however he can. He wants you to accept his lies as your reality. Will you fall victim to his evil plans for your destruction?
Very few people understand the significance of the massive changes underway in our entire society. Not since the time of Sodom and Gomorrah have people generally been as confused in so many ways. This is especially so right now because of the massive misuse of technology. By gaining almost total control of the media, a very real Satan the Devil is able to "manipulate" the thinking, the attitudes and the actions of billions of human beings—especially the younger generation.
We who are now physically older and have had to suffer to learn many lessons of life should have learned not to jump on the bandwagon and go along with the latest sociological and psychological twists and turns orchestrated by Satan the Devil. For we have found—perhaps over decades—that many of these ideas simply do not work! When some confused young radio or TV announcer reads the prepared script saying that peoples' civil rights are being violated if perverted young men cannot "declare" themselves as women and get to use the women's restrooms and showers—alongside our young daughters and wives—we become upset because we know and deeply understand that these ideas are totally wrong. They simply "don't work" and they will not bring about good results at all!
But, as more billions of young people are brought under the influence of Satan the Devil in so many of these "modern" situations, it is obvious that Satan is gaining control of our society more thoroughly than ever because of the pervasive nature of our media. For Satan can literally "bombard" people with these wrong ideas through television, through radio, through newspapers, through the Internet and so many other forms of media that many are "tuned into" many times every day.
Almighty God knew that this would occur. So, He directly explained to the early Christians how they "once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience" (Ephesians 2:2).
The Bible makes it clear that Satan the Devil is a powerful cherub who rebelled against the Creator and is now allowed by God to be the "god of this age," who has "blinded [those] who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them" (2 Corinthians 4:3–4).
The very Son of God, Jesus Christ, fully realizing that He and the Father have nevertheless "allowed" Satan to assume that office for the time being, told His disciples just days before He died: "I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me" (John 14:30). In order to let mankind realize how far down we would go apart from God, the true God is allowing Satan the Devil to set up an entire "alternative universe" in the way people think about many aspects of life. This affects not only their thinking, but their actions as well.
Therefore, since Hollywood portrays the sexual relationship between a man and a woman—not as part of a binding commitment in marriage—but as a "plaything" to be enjoyed any way confused humans want to use it, Satan has destroyed the deep sense of respect men and women ought to have about sex and all that it involves. Satan has manipulated the carnal producers, writers and directors of Hollywood films and television programs to portray—over and over—young men and women simply "living together" in various situations. Often, Satan uses the "situation comedy" vehicle to make it seem more "fun"—and to make anyone who would oppose such licentious behavior seem dumb.
Satan is, indeed, very clever about this. He is able to manipulate the way young people think—and the way all of us think if we are not careful!
Next, Satan tries to "blur the lines" between how we are supposed to live and operate as males and females in a decent society. Satan is now going to the extreme of causing the "opinion makers" in Hollywood, in the media in general and even in politics to go along believing the idea that, somehow, men can "decide" to become women, women can "decide" to become men, and other kinds of absurd ideas. As reported on CNSnews.com (June 2, 2015):
"Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a 'mental disorder' that merits treatment, that sex change is 'biologically impossible,' and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.
"Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a 'disorder of "assumption'''—the notion that their maleness or femaleness is different than what nature assigned to them biologically.
"He also reported on a new study showing that the suicide rate among transgendered people who had reassignment surgery is 20 times higher than the suicide rate among non-transgender people."
Jesus Christ said, "by their fruits you will know them" (Matthew 7:20). The "fruits"—the results of the homosexual lifestyle—are absolutely awful!
Virtually all authorities acknowledge that the rate of premature death for practicing homosexuals is much higher than for heterosexuals. These confused individuals are simply cutting short their lifespan by their perverted behavior. Statistics indicate that they have far more emotional difficulties than normal people. And Dr. McHugh's comment about the death rate for transgender people being twenty times higher than normal people is staggering! Yet, under the influence of the invisible Satan the Devil, Hollywood, news reporters and even many of our legislators in Congress and elsewhere simply "go along" with this perverted lifestyle, and all kinds of other behaviors that bring suffering, anguish and premature death!
Why? Again, it is because of an invisible force that they simply do not understand. Since they have rejected the only true source of ultimate knowledge, the Bible, they are unwilling or unable to understand the fact that there is a real perverted spirit being heavily influencing every aspect of our present society. For Satan the Devil really is the "god" of this present age!
Somehow, Satan is able to make some women constantly "desire" to be like men. They are increasingly encouraged by each other, by the media and other forces to constantly push and shove themselves forward and try to do things for which they are not physically or emotionally prepared. So we have a few women virtually "hell bent" to push themselves into becoming Navy Seals, Army Rangers and other stressful military positions that require unusual strengths and ability, for which women are not naturally equipped.
All of this, of course, takes them out of the home and away from their husbands and their children. So, again, Satan is able in this way to upset the normal order of things, to hurt the family structure, and to push people into areas that are not normal and do not bring genuine and permanent happiness for the majority of society. Thousands of little children are deprived of their own "mommy" at home taking care of them—and rearing in a proper manner the next generation of human beings made in the image of God.
Another aspect of human existence Satan is attacking is the value of human life. Since sex is now a "fun thing"—to be enjoyed whether or not it produces "good fruit"—people are told that they do not need to "control" themselves in how they handle sex. Rather, they hear that they can go ahead and have children apart from wedlock, or whenever they want. No one tells them to stop! For this teaching of self-control would be a supposed "violation of women's rights"!
So, with this understanding, women are "free" to have illicit and careless sex, and then murder the little human being that is conceived as a result of their irresponsible actions. That murdered child is often also a woman—what about her "woman's rights"? As usual, Satan the Devil through the media—and even through false ministers who pose as ministers of Jesus Christ-—constantly encourages people to go ahead and "have their fun" and believe there will be no penalty involved. So, instead of being a mother, a woman becomes a murderess!
Again, countless articles and reports are coming out showing the deep psychological scars borne by thousands of these women, who were talked into this practice of child murder by so-called "authorities"! Such confused young women become willing victims to the perverted reasoning of psychologists, sociologists and others who tell them that a fetus—the beginnings of a human being in their own body—is not "human." They are told that somehow this is just a piece of garbage that they can "get rid of" and forget about the consequences.
Yet, if we learn that the Bible really is the "mind of God in print"—that it really is the very Word or Message proceeding from the Creator—then we need to understand God's will on this topic! According to your Bible, Almighty God spoke these words to Jeremiah: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations" (Jeremiah 1:5).
What if Jeremiah's mother had been taught that he was just "waste material" that could be thrown in the trash rather than one who had been "known" as a human being by the Creator and was already sanctified or "set apart" as a prophet of Almighty God?
Again, God inspired the Apostle Paul to describe how God "…separated me from my mother's womb and called me through His grace" (Galatians 1:15). Therefore, Almighty God chose and set apart the great apostle even from within his mother's womb. He was not thrown in a garbage can as someone's human refuse! Can we even begin to understand the wretchedness of our entire society when over 50 million innocent human beings have been murdered in this way because of our modern sin of abortion?
Often, we do not look "behind the curtain" and realize that some of these sins already mentioned are promulgated at least partly because of human greed and the desire to make money. How much more money can a doctor make by charging women hundreds of dollars to murder their babies? How much more money can the media make by promulgating the homosexual lifestyle rather than showing its evils and stopping it before it takes over our entire society?
It is vital for all of you readers to fully realize how often leaders in the media—especially in advertising and sales—shamelessly "leap" onto any modern trend they think will begin to take over society, and bring in profit! Not being aware of God—always leaving God out of the picture—they are willing to go along with virtually anything that Satan the Devil comes up with in his "Alternative Universe"! Yet for those of us who believe the Bible, God Almighty warns: "But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows" (1 Timothy 6:9–10).
Truly, when people fall into these temptations and lusts, their end will be—as the above scripture indicates—"destruction and perdition." Remember, it is not just "having" money that is evil, but the "love" of money, which becomes not "the" root, but a root of "all kinds of evil." God certainly knew what He was talking about, and we see this unfolding before our very eyes as so many major companies are quick to "boycott" the state of North Carolina for passing a law telling young men to go to the bathroom according to their genuine biological identity—not some "preferred" identity they come up with in order to use the women's restroom!
Yet, all of us need to think about the situation of our human lust and willingness to "compromise" in order to make money. For truly, money has become a major issue in modern times and people are willing to "sell themselves" to Satan the Devil in many ways in order to "get ahead" by making more money. What most people fail to realize is that the end of all of this is death.
Through "compromising" with the right way of life in the short run, people sometimes "seem" to get ahead and be happier. Yet God's laws are like the law of gravity. They always work. You will always suffer when you break the Ten Commandments! Therefore, God's inspired Word tells us: "There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death" (Proverbs 14:12). Even now, as I write this, more and more articles and informative pieces are coming out in the media describing various perversions that are continually "taking over" various parts of our present society—"Satan's Alternative Universe" as it has become! Even as I write this, I am looking at an article from a recent issue of the Christianity Today magazine—a basically respected and solid "mainstream" publication that does not indulge in outrageous claims or attacks. As author Hazel Torres describes:
"As defined by Christian author and academician Timothy George, sologamy 'is the marriage of someone to one's own self—the his- or herness of it is not relevant, although it seems to be mostly women who are doing it.'
"Although this weird 'marital arrangement' has purportedly been in existence for more than 20 years now, it has not gained much following—until recently….
"But since last year, at least four women have already married themselves to themselves—in lavish ceremonies that resemble marriage between a man and a man.
"Last January, the Houston Chronicle reported that Yasmin Eleby 'married herself at the Houston Museum of African American Culture … in a lavish ceremony with 10 bridesmaids in attendance, plus family and other guests on hand to celebrate the event' (February 3, 2016)."
All of the above is a reaffirmation of the Apostle Paul's warning about the philosophers and "great thinkers" of his day:
"For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting" (Romans 1:26–28).
Our present society—which is becoming "Satan's Alternative Universe"—is following the same pattern, as human beings do "not like to retain God in their knowledge." We are ending up with "debased" minds and an entire debased human society leading to suffering, anguish and premature death for increasing millions of people. It is all because people are not willing to believe that God is real. They are not willing to do what God clearly says in His inspired Word. So, God will soon intervene in human affairs as never before in history and send Christ back to this earth to establish a society where He will put His law within the hearts and minds of all human beings (Jeremiah 31:31–33).
This entire subject is so vast, my friends, that I am going to stop at this point. But, I plan to prepare an entire booklet about this vital subject, which we will announce later. I hope you will read and study this booklet to help you fully grasp the "mind of Satan" and how it is, in fact, taking over your society and the entire world around you.
May God help all of us who are willing to "wake up" and come out of this present society, which is certainly a modern "Babylon"! The Eternal God commands everyone who wants to have eternal life in His Kingdom: "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities" (Revelation 18:4–5).
