" For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places" (Eph. 6:12).
Those who are familiar with my writings know I don't usually mince words. The devil is always behind sugar-coated truth and a slimy tongue. Be sure of that.
Abortion, homosexuality and Islam are the greatest dangers facing America in the 21st century. Each of them has opened up portals of entry into our culture and way of life. These are ideologies that have infiltrated the minds of multitudes—shaped and fueled by the unprincipled mad media.
Abortion is not an opinion about what women have a right to do or not do with their bodies. That's the devil's facade to hide what it really is. Willful abortion is murder at any point of a woman's pregnancy. It's a demon just like the Old Testament god of Molech to whom people sacrificed babies. It's the same altar where many Americans now worship.
Think about it. Why are there abortion rights that have killed 60 million babies in the America alone? Blunt answer: mainly because of fornication and adultery.
There are some cases of rape and so forth, but that's a very small minority. Yet it's one of the main talking points of what people debate on. It's hogwash. Sexual immorality is the biggest reason we have abortions. People want sex without the commitment and covenant of marriage and responsibility of the consequences. In fact, what they say by their actions is "A baby will ruin my happiness, so kill it!" How much more demonic can it be?
But do you know what is fueling the increase of promiscuous sex and now pedophilia, as well as all sorts of perversion? One word. Pornography. If you shut down the billion-dollar industry of pornography, you will radically decrease sexual immorality and perversion on every level. Abortions will also decrease exponentially.
Pornography is another portal of entry for demonic access. These evils are all linked together. It's Satan's master plan and worldwide web.
How about homosexuality? I wrote an article over four years ago on homosexuality being a demon, and demons flew from every direction to attack my words. People were calling our ministry phone, writing nasty comments, sharing the article with right-wing watch groups and mocking it. They were fuming in venomous rage. That alone proves it was a demon because it's the very point that nearly everyone attacked.
People accused me of having no compassion, but guess what? I also received calls and messages from homosexuals who knew I was telling the truth and wanted help. My compassion was directed toward those.
Now, it's not only acceptable in our culture, but it's celebrated and legalized. What happened? Demons, through the agency of deceived people and lawmakers, pushed it through and legalized it. When they did, it opened up a larger portal of entry for the release of more demons and the rule of a principality in our nation.
As long as the majority of people want their demons God will let them have them because He honors the human agency of free will—a debased mind void of judgment will be their most terrible portion (Rom. 1:24-28). Eventually homosexuality will destroy the culture of a nation and bring down the judgment of God as it did in days of old. Wherever homosexuality is prevalent, and alas, made law, evil rules and reigns and anyone who fights it is preyed upon.
Now this one will make people angry. The mask to Islam is that it's a nice religion of peace. Much of the gullible populace has swallowed this lie—hook, line and sinker.
Have you ever read the Quran and the ideologies that are written therein?
The Quran says:
Muslims must not take infidels as friends (3:28).
Any religion other than Islam is unacceptable (3:85).
Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam (5:33).
Terrorize and behead those who believe in Scriptures other than the Quran (8:12).
Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels (8:60).
The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65).
When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5).
The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:29).
Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood (9:23).
According to its own holy book, this is a religion full of hate that believes it does God a service by killing all non-Muslims, especially Christians and Jews. Jesus warned us of such.
"They will put you out of the synagogues. Yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he is offering a service to God" (John 16:2).
Yes, some Muslims are good, peaceful Americans, but when push comes to shove, they will stand with their ideology.
The more people understand the entire Islamic strategy to kill and conquer, the more society will wake up to it, and the better it will be for America and its future. This religious war is filled with deliberately thought-out, methodical strategies to take over every nation Islam enters. It's called jihad. This dark Islamic strategy is so much bigger than the average person realizes. The big plan jihadis have devised for America is to destroy it from within.
Take note of the similarities between abortion, homosexuality, and Islam. Abortion is death to the most innocent. Homosexuality is death to the family, normal reproduction and the increase of confusion and perversion. Transgenderism came in right behind homosexuality to pile on more confusion, darkness, and death upon the human race. Finally, Islam declares death to all nations who do not worship their false god.
Death has gained great access into America. We are in a very serious and intense war. Satan is playing for keeps. It is time for every believer in Jesus Christ to enter this spiritual fight and stop living in denial. It's time for fire to erupt in the bellies of preachers and for their mouths to thunder truth and righteousness. Quit being passive and politically correct. In doing so, you are actually being an ally to the devil. It's time to rock the boat and demolish the strongholds in people's minds through not only heartfelt, fervent prayer, but through strong, straightforward preaching.
"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor. 10:4-5).
