In my last article, titled Conversation with Jesus, I was able to share my conversations with Jesus over time through my journaling. Just as HE is real, so is Satan, and I‘d like to share some reality with you, (the readers), that may or may not have an impact. First, let me say that I am not an authority on evil or Satan himself, but I am knowledgeable in my faith, constantly studying spiritual warfare; grounded in the teachings of the Catholic Church, and willing to defend that faith if need be. I am always learning. So let’s begin…..
One of the greatest fallacies and greatest tricks that Satan has been able to pull off is convincing people that he does not exist. I can assure you he does. Recently, my husband and I went to see the movie “Nefarious” which means evil; this is also a demon’s name. If you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend it to all and everyone from perhaps sixteen and up. It’s not gory, there is no horror, of which many might be disappointed, and there is no foul language. Sounds boring? Trust me it’s not. It’s anything but. The premises is a prisoner who is possessed, and a psychiatrist who is an atheist. The psychiatrist must determine if this man, (and whoever the guy is that plays this character, should get an academy award, he’s that good), is possessed to make the determination if he (the prisoner) should face the electric chair.
Now that I’ve said all of that, let me share some interesting tidbits on Satan himself. First, people think God created Hell, but in fact, Hell is all the places where God is not. Look at the schools, where God has been taken out of, and the Satanic after-school programs flourishing in some states. It is a fact that every time we sin, we rebel against God, just as the angels did who were cast out of Heaven by God, because they refused to serve God, and were angered over mankind being made in the image of God and set above the angels of heaven.
But let’s put Satan in today’s presence. Satan uses pride against us. How? Instead of manipulating us, he just presents it and then gets out of the way, while he sits back and watches us destroy ourselves. The power, greed, me, me, attitude, has worked like a charm, not only within our schools, but even in our government. To wreak as much havoc upon each of us, through our history books, ie; Margaret Sanger for example, who wanted to destroy all babies in the womb through abortion, blacks, whites, and of course look at North Korea nowadays. Demons can tempt us through provocation. They can plant thoughts or arrange circumstances that make it more likely we’ll be stirred to pride or anger or lust or even despair.
Satan is real, he is very much among us with his legions trying to take as many souls away from our creator as possible. I used to have this saying on my car till it wore off:
iI you don’t like this country, leave and leave the gift of freedom behind, not take it with you., and if you don’t believe in Satan, no worries, he’s looking for another soul, as he will seep into our country little by little because God is no longer.
