King James Version
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
We know that our fight is not against flesh and blood but in the heavenly places. The spiritual and the demonic realm that exists inter-dimensionally and which has the ability to affect the lives of people here on earth. The world, by its virtue of being in such a diluted and fallen state, has become desensitized through its broad acceptance of sin in which it fails to recognize the works of the devil that have begun to manifest in plain sight of all of us to see.
Amidst the unexpected( but believed by many to have been orchestrated) crisis and the added distraction of the riots in the streets of major American cities and around the world, a silent movement has been continuing to grow. This movement has existed in a pattern of waves alongside the natural expansion of societies, nations, and peoples and personifies the prime example of the nature of mankind and of its unbridled and sinful quality that has legitimized Satan’s hold on humanity.
Research conducted by EzraProject.info over the last five years has found that the worship of Satan in contemporary societies around the globe has not only multiplied but intensified in its efforts. Exposure to the occult has transpired through the broad array of media outlets who, over the last 60+ years, has produced articles, tv programs, films, and even complete collections and magazine editions which have been dedicated to the in-depth illustration and introduction to the world of satanism, as well as humanism and the interest of ancient cultures and tribes(many of whom are very much alive)that embrace ancestral and idol worship. The aforementioned is in reference to manuscripts that disclose the nature of such worship and its practices rather than those coming from an anthropological standpoint. Although those do offer great evidence of the existence of events depicted in the biblical narrative through supportive information they document in regards to the worship of idols and historical events.
Magazines such as TIME, have published hard copy editions as early as 1968, which still exist today on their website for online viewing in their archives that expound on the personal lives and experiences of satanist. These cataloged issues demonstrate a timeline of this dark movement and depict a seemingly curious and harmless portrayal of satanic and Wiccan covens that emerged in and around the decades after WWII. One of the most notable is the story of The Satanic Temple which came on the scene in the mid to late nineteen-sixties in America. They tell a story of individuals who chose by their own volition to reject any sense of God’s righteousness, uniting instead to come into agreement and under covenant with satan. In doing so, not only do they remove themselves from under the protection of God but have spiritually contaminated themselves, engaging in spiritual and at times physical immorality in order to garner control, power and wealth. While they may not at first be aware, most who continue this path do so in full knowledge of the nature of what they are committing to. Their deception is so profound that it is possible to say that they are unaware that upon dying physically they will exist in hell. But their understanding of the subject is marred and rarely do they exhibit any concern regarding their immortal soul.
It is also important to note for the reader, that most who embrace this demonic doctrine come from various walks of life and rarely resemble anything society and culture has ever deemed repulsive. This reflection of course is based on the temperament of the culture respectively to the trends and fashion of their day. Let us not be deceived into thinking that the great falling away described in the Bible should happen under extreme transformation, but rather a subtle build-up of events that will bring us to the crushing of the tribulation. It is under the guise of acceptance of the abhorrent rather than God that the world will lose the remembrance of the laws, covenants, and statutes given us, ultimately accepting what is ungodly and even the antichrist himself.
These sects and covens, because of what they deceitfully promise to obtain tend to attract individuals in the higher rungs of power, and although not everyone who is successful is associated with them, there are many within their ranks who do belong to the aristocracy and those who are in positions of power.
1My son, do not forget my law,
But let your heart keep my commands;
2For length of days and long life
And peace they will add to you.
3Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart,
4And so find favor and [a]high esteem
In the sight of God and man.
5Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall [b]direct your paths
It should not be of any surprise then that these individuals would be the kind people who support the notion that we must change and evolve, becoming enlightened, not through a transformation as a result of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit within us, but rather seeking from within ourselves understanding and knowledge that has led to the open practice of the worship of the devil, much like homosexuality and promiscuity which were once rejected and frowned upon but now are found commonplace. Each presents a challenge to the church as a collective in that they have infiltrated almost all if not all areas of society either physically or ideologically and have been at the forefront of many of the socio-political movements in this country and abroad.
Because most of their focus is on the dismantling of the divine order of God( the removal of the patriarchy as many who are opposed to God do express) they are telling us what they really desire. That being the removal of the fathers from the home and the removal of God from our societies, communities, and countries. To blur the lines between what is ordained by God (men) to have authority to yield power over creation and to worship God. To invert all that is a symbol of this authority and masculinity and transforming it into a mockery of the headship of God. In everything, they do they emphasize the “feminine ” identity as defined by the world and the worship of the feminine, something that links back to the fall of Eve in the garden. From there on everything tied to the worship of idols and entities is always represented by the effigy of the woman. Who although being deceived and beguiled, asserted herself over Adam to accept the fruit of the tree of the knowledge and good and evil. Here we see the description of the tree and its fruit for what it really represents, the devil and the fruits of the devil are that which is in the form of temptation, sin, deed, doubt, and thought and its aftermath.
For which God warned saying that on that day they would surely die. Much was lost then, Adam relinquished his authority over the earth and in his act of submission to eve’s request disobeyed God and handed over his authority over all that God gave him to both yield control over and that which he was blessed with to the devil himself. Here, the rebellion of Eve is one that places the identity of the woman in jeopardy, having been chosen by the devil to destroy the image of God, the man. Is the Devil female? Not exactly, the characteristics are often represented as both male and female, androgynous. A distortion and an abomination, but pay attention as you will see that all that is being used to champion the causes of the devil seem to take on feminine identity.
They detest this order because the devil understands that when each man is under full submission to God, each household is in alignment with the blessing of God and His protection. When these things happen in accordance with the will of God, God makes big changes to occur within the family, the church, and the country. This is a side of spiritual warfare that is often ignored because the enemy has blinded people to thing that he simply isn’t real. So much so that the church itself is complacent to the point that it allows for institutions of government to take over the chores placed on it by God. When you have this kind of environment in which the widow and orphan are now wards of the state and reliant on the state-run institutions to help fill their needs is when agendas such as the promotion of homosexuality, transgenderism, and even socialism are inculcated in schools and at times at the youngest grades. They make sure that the influence of the church is minimized and go to great lengths through regulation and legal standards to keep it from fulfilling its purpose.
it is in this particular set of circumstances in which the worshipers of Satan have found their opportunity to further create destruction in the institution of marriage and family, both who are a powerful representation of the commitment and depths of what our relationship with God should mirror.
James 1:15 Context
12Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. 13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. 16Do not err, my beloved brethren. 17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. 18Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

The Bible has given illustrations like the one listed above to get us to understand that the further mankind pulls away from God in disobedience, and in untactful pursuit of its own impulses the more mankind is plagued with suffering, strife, and death. At its core is pride, the ancient rebellion of Satan himself.
