Who or what is behind groups like “Antifa” and “Black Lives Matter”? Why is violence and hatred characteristic of political extremists on BOTH sides.
Human beings live in an active spiritual war zone. All humans live on enemy held territory. How did this happen?
First, a quick word about “Dualism” so that you do not get confused. Dualism is the view that two equal but opposite intelligent, uncreated powers inhabit our universe and war against one another. In Dualism, one power is good and one equal power is bad. They have been opposed throughout eternity and neither has won. Here and there they have a loss and then a victory over the other. Some people choose the good power and some choose the evil. Though some untaught people believe that this is what Christianity believes, it does not. Dualism is completely foreign and contrary to biblical Christianity.
The biblical Christian knows that the two powers that war against one another are nowhere near equal. One is Creator. That would be God. The other is a created being. That would be satan or the devil (not the cultural devil of red union-suit, pitchfork. horns, and tail fame). Satan was created for a purpose which he chose to abandon. He is far below God in power, authority, and ability. He rebelled against God and drew other angelic powers after himself. They warred in heaven against God’s loyal powers.
The spirit-dimensional beings that fell in rebellion are now demons. Demonic powers are mainly disembodied, though they seek human habitation and animate some humans. Demonized humans are willingly and/or unknowingly used by these powers to wage war both on those who do not serve their cause and on those in fellowship with Christ.
Under the anointing of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle Paul wrote of these supernatural beings:
Ephesians 6:10–13 (ESV)
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Understand, the voices of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, CAIR, and those who foster division and who hate our nation serve demonic powers. Even though deceived people are the glove, spiritual beings are the hand in the glove. The real war is against spiritual forces. Only those who are equipped to wage war spiritually will be victorious. The majority of people are clueless. Most of them have allied with Satan. A few serve the true and only King. And they are equipped to stand against the demonic effectively.
Matthew 7:13–14 (ESV)
13 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
In the excellent 2012 movie, “Act of Valor,” one of the Navy Seals presents a toast to his Seal team as they are gathered informally around a fire the night before their deployment. He lifts his glass and says, “To all those who have been downrange. To us and those like us . . . damn few.”
Genuine followers of Jesus Christ, who understand their calling to displace demonic evil, have been “downrange” in the spiritual warfare. And we are precious few.
Many can talk or write about spiritual warfare and the demonic but some of us are veterans of the spiritual war. For us it’s not theory or doctrine.
I have seen the joy in the face of a woman who was delivered from a demon. Before her deliverance, the demonic spirit caused her eyes to roll back in her head and her body to go stiff as a plank. I have seen the result when I confronted a violent man bent on attacking me. In Jesus’ name, I commanded the violent spirit controlling him to be bound. He and his friend turned from me and couldn’t leave the scene fast enough. The terror of Christ filled them and overpowered that violent spirit animating them. I’ll never forget the look of fear on their faces. I remember the grateful thanks to Jesus of a couple in Brazil who had their lives and marriage set free from a local Macumba priestess who had overcome them by demonic power. We saw the living Jesus Christ not only set them free, but later deliver and save the priestess herself.
Like it or not, this warfare is real. And we believers have not only authority but the assignment and responsibility to confront and displace demonic powers by the authority of Christ. We are sons of the Kingdom—the “sons of God.”(Romans 8:14) We are with Jesus and we gather with him.
Luke 11:23 (ESV)
23 Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.
Revelation 6:15–17 (ESV)
15 Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, 16 calling to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?”
Christ, the Lamb of God, will destroy Satan and all the demons that currently traffic with humans. To destroy Satan and his powers is to destroy the spirit of murder and terror.
This is the war we fight. Our spiritual battle is not against people, but against the spirits that animate them and use them to champion evil until Christ returns. We have authority over these demonic beings only because Christ gave it to us (Luke 10.19). It is our assignment to crush them through intercession and the command of Christ as we stand in our authority to displace darkness and the demonic:
Luke 10:17–24, ESV
The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!” And he said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” Then turning to the disciples he said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”
Followers of Jesus, do not give up. Fight the good fight of the faith! You will be victorious! For nothing can succeed against the Church–the body of Christ. No weapon formed against us will prosper; all those who rise up against us will fall. We will sit enthroned with Christ to pass judgment on these spirit-beings–the enemies of all that is good, right, beautiful, and true–and send them to their final and ultimate eternal destruction in the Lake of Fire. In Christ we already have the victory!

I’m feeling the need to share from my heart and experience of spiritual reality.
If you are an Abortionist reading this post, please do not think that the following descriptions of what will happen to you are anything that I would wish for you. My wish for you is total deliverance and healing. I wish only to serve you by presenting the truth–as a reflective mirror might–of what you are doing to yourself and your family (assuming you have one and are not single).
Abortionism is not about politics, but about demonization and channeling. The mind that can wish harm, not only to the children of others but upon its own children is the mind inflamed by demonic, supernatural power. Simply put, abortionists either channel demons or are themselves in grave danger of severe demonization–the person in either condition will end up in need of deliverance, not only for themselves but possibly for their families as well. They’re choice to participate willingly in murder opens their souls and their children’s souls to demonization.
I assume that unless those who tear babies from wombs turn from their embrace of darkness, they will begin at some point to experience no longer being in control of the powerful, dark powers they have invited into their lives. Demonization spreads first into the practitioner’s own soul and then often spills over into her family’s, decimating relationships–until her own children experience a spiritual darkness paralleled to the darkness which took the lives away from other children. It’s about sowing and reaping. What you sow, you reap. This is a spiritual principle that NEVER fails.
Death, through you, was channeled to others. That’s why your children will experience nightmares, and unusual phobias. They are being exposed to something that neither they nor you will be able to control. Behavioral problems or severe emotional, mental challenges will begin to present front and center. And there is no natural cure or escape no matter which public health or mental health specialists you seek out. They will only be able to medicate the symptoms. But without spiritual deliverance, you and yours are at the mercy of deep darkness, bondage and oppression.
Spiritual repentance and deliverance of the abortionist will be the only hope for the abortionists family. Masked baby killers will have to turn to spiritual solutions for their own families. I beleive that will be the only way they will be willing to give up their lucrative and deluded roles in the killing clinics.
Abortionism is Satan’s attempt to eliminate, to wipe from existence God’s creation–humans. Humans are worthy of dignity because they are made in God’s image. They were Created, not knocked together by chance, lightning and mud carried on the backs of crystals. We are fearfully and wonderfully made.
Abortionists currently prefer to eliminate girls, but to them, any life worth living is worth taking, especialy when you consider how lucrative abortion is. Abortionists have given themselves over to darkness because of the things that they have opened themselves to. Their blood lust is second only to their lust for money and power over life.
The article at the Link below is another example of abortionism at its best. No one would believe what abortionism is at its worst.
How far has a culture unraveled morally when its mothers murder their own children? Again . . . I say . . . this is a spiritual issue.
But it is hugely economic as well. Too many are willing to earn a living in the death chambers fueled by the bloodlust of Planned Parenthood. And all this under the guise of “compassion” and “choice.” Choose LIFE rather than Eugenics.
We have to keep these baby-executions before people until everyone sees this holocaust for what it really is. Who in their right minds can ever excuse it? In the face of this ongoing horror, I cannot be silent when it comes across my screen.
That’s why I implore YOU to become an unashamed Abortion Abolitionist. Killing children for the sake of a woman’s comfort or an executioner’s income is NEVER right.
May God forgive the masked murderers who surround the young women who enter the murder mills. These clinics are the Treblinkas and Auschwitzs of our generation. May God grant in his great mercy the godly sorrow and repentance that may set some of them free to begin to see what they are doing. May they escape the Lake of Fire to which the spirits they channel are dragging them.

One night recently, my friend and I watched “Obsession: Radical Islam.” The DVD showed the intense hatred and focused malevolence aimed at the United States and other western countries by radical jihadists. This threat is a clear and present danger not only to our country and economy, but to our way of life. Jihadists plan to sweep the world into their net of radical Islam. They claim to accomplish this by murdering any non-Muslims and the Muslims they consider to be nominal. They also want to destroy Israel, along with all Jews wherever they are found. It was this particular emphasis that reminded me of the historic sweep of Hitler’s National Socialism. Same goals, different people and time. Same violent, demonic base, different geography.
Of course, this didn’t just spring to life. History has always witnessed to movements that cycle through time yet give birth to this anti-Semitism and spirit of vengeance. Jihad literally means “struggle.” Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf, translates literally—“My Struggle.” This is the “struggle” of Satan to overcome God, his ways, his people, his values, and his intents.
Satan has ALWAYS desired the death of human beings. The weird thing is, he doesn’t care which side they’re on. He destroys those who love the good. And he equally destroys those who embrace his evil—thus suicide warfare has always existed as well.
As recently as WWII the Japanese sent their kamikaze pilots against U.S. naval vessels in the Pacific. Vietnam saw little children, loaded with explosives, approach U.S. troops and civilians in South Vietnam. Now it’s radical jihadists sending children to their deaths. The men who have caused these children to hate are not only cowards; they have lost their souls and will be punished in the fires of hell after they have been sent into the outer darkness. They are weak ineffective vessels used by a spiritual enemy to deliver death and cause little ones to sin.
Jesus of Nazareth said:
17 . . . “Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.
–Luke 17:1–2 (ESV)
These demonized men hate women and children, because they hate themselves. Unless they repent and turn to God, they are beyond redemption. They are of their Father, the devil. He has been a murderer from the beginning. They are destined for destruction.
