Title: PAGANS ARE BRAGGING THAT LUCIFERIC SHOWS ARE CAUSING AN EXPLOSION OF YOUNG PEOPLE SEEKING TO BECOME WITCHES AND WIZARDS!
Subtitle: If Christians warn that TV, movies and books are causing people to want to go into the occult, we are extremely ridiculed. Yet, the Pagan Federation is now bragging that many people are coming into Witchcraft because of occult-based shows. Harry Potter defenders, are you listening?
NEWS BRIEF: "TV shows fuel children's interest in witchcraft", Ananova News, August, 2000, http://ananova.com/entertainment/story/television_children-entertainment-religion-paganism_926320.html
"The Pagan Federation is claiming that TV programmes Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Sabrina the Teenage Witch have fuelled a rapidly growing interest in witchcraft among children. The organisation says it deals with an average of 100 inquiries a month from youngsters who want to become witches, and claims it has occasionally been 'swamped' with calls. Media officer Andy Norfolk says the Federation is to appoint its first youth officer in September after receiving calls following recent articles about paganism in teenage magazines."
Isn't this amazing? After so many Christians are allowing themselves to be deluded about the effect such pagan shows have on the minds and hearts of youngsters, the Pagan Federation has just set the record straight. Many kids watching Satanism on television are drawn toward wanting to practice it in their lives.
Yet, too many parents -- Christian and otherwise -- allow themselves to be deluded by such apologists for this Satanic filth as Chuck Colson, Christianity Today, and to a lesser extent, Focus On The Family. These three organizations have been telling American Christian parents since November, 1999, that they can allow their children to read the latest Satanic craze, Harry Potter . Christian parents who complain that these books could cause kids to want to go into Satanism are ridiculed and skewered to the highest tall pole.
Yet, here we see the Pagan Federation bragging that just such a connection is very real, and is bringing many youngsters into Witchcraft. For every single child that calls in to inquire about how to become a witch or wizard, several times that many kids undoubtedly discover how to do it on their own.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Sabrina The Teenage Witch are very popular these days, and for a very good reason. You see, the Bible is correct in saying that man is inherently evil and will, therefore, be drawn into a love for, and practice of, evil.
Jeremiah 17:9 -- "The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly perverse and corrupt and severely, mortally sick! Who can know it [perceive, understand, and be acquainted with his own heart and mind]?" [Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Please read this Scripture over and over until the full enormity of man's sinful nature is imprinted indelibly on your heart. Men and women are inherently as evil as Adolf Hitler unless the Holy Spirit steps in to restrain the evil in an individual from going as far as that individual's normal nature would allow. Even Christians do not understand the wonderful degree to which God restrains evil, even in unsaved people, in order that His elect, His Born Again believers, might live normal lives.
One of the factors that will make the Tribulation Period so horrible is that God will remove His normal restraining influence among the unsaved, allowing their normal depraved natures to go as far into sin as they would like to go. I tell you, crime in public will soar so greatly that people will be afraid to go to the grocery store for fear of being murdered. All sorts of public crime and depraved acts will begin to occur, just as in the time of Sodom and Gomorrah. One of the factors in the Biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah that has always intrigued me is that the men of the city came to Lot's house to demand that he send the angels outside so they could have sex with them in public !! Why were these men not worried about being arrested by the police for having public sex? The answer is simple and yet profound: there were no laws against it in these two societies, since both cities had long ago accepted homosexuality as normal and healthy. When Jesus said that the situation in nations at the End of the Age was going to be like that of Sodom and Gomorrah [Luke 17:29-30], I am positive He was including the practice of homosexuality. Therefore, we should not be surprised to see the acceptance of homosexuality gaining official recognition in Public Schools, in our Judiciary, and in governmental institutions from sea to shining sea. Soon, public displays of both homosexual and heterosexual sex will be commonplace, and no one will be arrested.
Now, let us return to the subject of normal human depravity .
Psalm 14:2-3 -- "The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one." When God looked down from Heaven specifically to see if any person on earth was trying to do good, and to refrain from doing evil, He discovered that "ALL" had "gone aside", had "become filthy" together.
Such is the normal sinful nature of mankind.
Since the nature of people is inherently sinful, to a huge degree and depth, Satan can mightily appeal to man by creating a religion that is specifically designed to appeal directly to that depraved nature. Satanism and White Magic Luciferianism specifically appeals to this human depraved condition. Consider some quotes from The Satanic Bible.
The author, Anton LaVey, states: "... Satanic weddings consecrating the joys of the flesh ... lust rituals to help individuals attain their sex desires, destruction rituals to enable members of the Satanic church to triumph over enemies." [Introduction]
Can you see why people would naturally be attracted to an effective presentation of a religion that glorified such natural human desires? Now, consider these other statements that reveal how completely Satanism deliberately appeals to the natural, unregenerate, and thoroughly wicked mankind.
"Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!" [p. 25]
"Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek!" [Ibid.]
"Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!" [Ibid.]
"Hate your enemies with a whole heart, and if a man smite you on one cheek, SMASH him on the other!; smite him hip and thigh, for self-preservation is the highest law! He who turns the other cheek is a cowardly dog" [p. 33; Emphasis was in the original] Hate of other people is one of the most common fruits of the Satanic spirit; people find it easier to hate than to love, because true love means placing someone else's wellbeing above your own. People tend to be narcissic in their depraved nature.
"... make the most of life -- here and now! There is no heaven of glory bright, and no hell where sinners roast ... Here and now is our day of joy! Here and now is our opportunity! Choose ye this day, this hour, for no redeemer liveth! Say unto thine own heart, 'I am my own redeemer'." [Ibid.] The sinner resists with all his or her might the concept that they are so helpless spiritually that they need a Redeemer to save them from eternal punishment; this fact offends the proud and arrogant sensibility of the naturally wicked man.
"... the Satanist simply accepts the definition [of God] which suits him best. Man has always created his gods, rather than his gods creating him ... To the Satanist, 'God' -- by whatever name he is called, or by no name at all -- is seen as the balancing factor in nature, and as not being concerned with suffering. This powerful force which permeates and balances the universe is far too impersonal to care about the happiness or misery of flesh-and-blood creatures on this ball of dirt upon which we live." [p. 40]
This definition of God as a force fulfills one of the attributes of Antichrist. "But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces" [Daniel 11:38] This concept of an impersonal God too impersonal to care specifically about mankind appeals to the naturally wicked nature of man, because it fuels his natural hedonism, and leads directly to the concept, "Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die".
"The seven deadly sins of the Christian Church are: greed, pride, envy, anger, gluttony, lust, and sloth. Satanism advocates indulging in each of these 'sins' as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification." [p. 46; Emphasis added]
As you can see from these quotes, Satan has deliberately created a religion that appeals to the naturally wicked, depraved nature of man without Jesus Christ. Therefore, your child will find it more natural and comfortable to follow these values than to follow the values of the Bible. To allow your child to indulge in Harry Potter books is to feed the fire of this wicked and depraved nature. To allow your child to indulge in Rock Music is to further feed the fire. To allow your child to make close friends with other kids who are given over to this type of paganism is to further feed the fire; the greatest concentration of kids given over to Paganism is found in our Public Schools, aided and abetted by teachers and curricula designed to produce such paganism in the hearts of impressionable and naturally rebellious children.
The time will come when your child will have been completely turned cold to the matters of Jesus Christ. Exactly when your child will cross that line varies from child to child, but that line does exist in every child's mind and heart. Your job as a Christian parent is to protect your child from this kind of evil until the Holy Spirit works in their heart.
A SUPERNATURAL SPIRIT BLOWING UPON AN ENTIRE POPULATION
In Numbers 11:1-30, God promised the Elders of Israel that He would blow the same Holy Spirit upon the entire population of Israel that He had just blown upon them. Every revival in every land since the ministry of Jesus Christ has occurred because the Holy Spirit blew upon the people. When America was founded, the Holy Spirit of God had been working on the entire population of the American Colonies in what is called "The Great Awakening", beginning in the 1740's; when the Masonic leaders of our nation were attempting to found their occult "Great Atlantis" vision, they had to contend with the Spirit of God blowing upon the entire population, so they hid much of what they had done.
But, just as the Spirit of God blows upon an entire population at times, so can the lying, deceptive spirit of Satan, if God should allow it. When the Apostle Paul spoke of the Restrainer being lifted and taken out of the way so Antichrist could be revealed [2 Thessalonians 2:1-10], I am convinced that the spirit of Satan will rush right in to engulf the entire population of the world, leading them by "unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception".
This Satanic spirit is blowing upon the population of America, and the entire world, today. A quick perusal of the Movie Section of your newspaper and a quick walk down the aisle of the horror section in your video store will reveal this horrible fact. The spirit of Satan is blowing mightily upon the children of this land with "unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception". Harry Potter is a huge part of this Satanic spirit. Are you going to sit back and allow your child to be thus affected?
We need to not only take our children out of harm's way on this issue, but we need to hold them up daily in Intercessory Prayer to the Holy Spirit, praying a "Wall of Fire" [Zechariah 2:5] around their souls. The End of the Age is truly upon us; is your child going to be a spiritual casualty?
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
