We're going to cover something astonishing! Though we have read Scriptures how many times, and we never thought that it would come to what we're going to talk about today.

Rev. 12:9—there are quite a few things that are here for us, and we know what it says. We read it and we're convinced as to what it says. But how are we going to respond when it is actually true?

In other words, how are we going to respond when we're living in this time that Satan is deceiving the whole world. Of course, there are various degrees of being deceived.

Revelation 12:9: "And the great dragon was cast out, the ancient serpent who is called the Devil and Satan, who is deceiving… [present tense participle meaning ongoing] …the whole world…"

That's why there's so much trouble in the world, because it is more deceived than ever before, and in places that we didn't think it would happen.

"…he was cast down to the earth, and his angels were cast down with him" (v 9).

There's going to be war in heaven; that hasn't happen, yet. But what I want to bring out today is that Satan is manifesting himself to the world directly! He's still using all the deceived people and all the deceived organizations and all of that. But he's revealing himself now to the world. Lot's of times we say:

  • What is happening?
  • Why don't they know?
  • How come they don't know any better?

One of the reasons is that very few people know the extent of deception:

  • in the churches
  • in government
  • in education

1-John 5—Here's where we find ourselves, very similar to the time when Apostolic Age was coming to a close. What happened right after John died? Around came all of the proto-Catholics with, all of their

  • false doctrines
  • infant baptism
  • born again
  • Sunday-keeping

All of that came step-by-step after John died!

1-John 5:19: "We know… [this is us] …that we are of God, and that the whole world…"

That ties in with Rev. 12:9, that he's deceiving the whole world. We will see that he has lots of help in doing it.

"…the whole world lies in the power of the wicked one" (v 19).

That's what's happening today to a higher degree than it's ever happened in our lifetime. Satan has so many tools to work with that were never there in ages past. He has a lot of helpers, and as we're going to see, he has a lot of believers who worship him and are now coming out into the open! There will be virtually very little to stop them. So, here's how he works:

Ephesians 2:1: "Now, you were dead in trespasses and sins… [that the way the whole world is right now] …in which you walked in times past according to the course of this world…" (vs 1-2).

If the world is being deceived, if the world is in the power of the wicked one, guess what's going on? Here it is:

"…according to the prince of the power of the air…" (v 2). Jesus called Satan the ruler of this world! (John 15)!

"…the spirit that is now working within… [right into the minds of people as never before] …the children of disobedience" (v 2).

Everyone who disobeys God has been influenced outwardly—some directly possessed—against God. Some to a large degree, some in a smaller degree.

Verse 3: "Among whom also we all once had our conduct in the lusts of our flesh…"

I was astonished at how much television and Internet, and everything to do digitally that is purely satanic! Everything on TikTok is pure satanism! The Chinese know how to program people's minds more than any other nation on earth. What did they do during the Korean War? They took our American prisoners and brainwashed them! They know how to do it better than any other nation.

There are others, at the same time, working for Satan. You can identify them because they never tell the truth.

"…doing the things willed by the flesh and by the mind… [Lots of good ideas; where did that come from?] …and were by nature the children of wrath, even as the rest of the world" (v 3).

Let's see some other things concerning Satan the devil and see how Satan works. That's why when we repent and we receive the Holy Spirit, we receive the Holy Spirit of Truth. One of the main things that is to do for us is to understand lies and to get rid of the lies within us having our minds renewed with the Spirit of the Truth!

This will put us in direct conflict with the world! There's no way around it!

2-Corinthians 4:1: "Therefore, having this ministry, according as we have received mercy, we are not fainthearted." God doesn't want us to be:

  • fainthearted
  • depressed
  • discouraged
  • down

because things are wicked and evil in the world! They are and they're going to get worse.

Do you think that the liberals in San Francisco—when they started to allow sin, drugs, homelessness—that it would get as bad as it is today? In Los Angeles? Chicago? Portland? Seattle? St. Louis? Baltimore? New York City? If you take down those cities, how much of America have you conquered? No one has thought of that!

Verse 2: "For we have personally renounced the hidden things of dishonest gain, not walking in cunning craftiness, nor handling the Word of God deceitfully…"

That's the sin of the Christianity of this world, handling the Word of God deceitfully!Granted, there may be some out there who are trying—we will see that there are a few—to do some things that are right, which will have a partial effect.

"…but by manifestation of the Truth, we are commending ourselves to every man's conscience before God. But if our Gospel is hidden…" (vs 2-3).

This is what we're up against in the world. Satan the devil being what he is.

"…it is hidden to those who are perishing; in whom the god of this age…" (vs 3-4)—or world!

It says 'theos' the same word as God. So that tells you the power that Satan has.

"…has blinded the minds of those who do not believe, lest the Light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, Who is the image of God, should shine unto them" (v 4).

Here's the key that retains the Truth in everything that we do. We can't do it in pretense, we can't do it in a deceitful way.

Verse 5: "For we do not preach our own selves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake."

Let's see what was happening, and we're going to find a great manifestation of that, that has already started.

2-Corinthians 11:3: "But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness…"

He's going to come with some powerful arguments. Look at one of the most tragic things that have been promulgated, that have been upheld by government, education, by law is gender affirmation operations. I've got a book called Irrepairable, and what they are doing is pure evil! How did that happen? Satan deceived those who participate in it. How did that happen? Because our Constitution is not what we thought it was! Our Constitution can only work if the people are honest and believe in God.

You can't have every man doing his own thing if his own thing is evil and if you don't get rid of it. You read in the Old Testament what God says to do with sexual perverts. What does He say needs to be done? They must suffer the penalty of death! God knows that when it develops and grows like mold that the whole society will become like Sodom and Gomorrah.

That's why He said—unless they repent—they die! People will say that that's harsh. Okay, we'll look at what they are already doing right now with satanism. Pure identified named satanism coming out in the open as never before! It all began right here:

"…so your minds might be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For indeed, if someone comes preaching another Jesus, whom we did not preach, or you receive a different spirit…" (vs 3-4).

There are demon spirits coming that are from Satan the devil. It's almost like this: the greater the degree of sin in a group of people, God releases demons out of prison.

When it gets really bad, we see there in Rev. 8-9 that the abyss is opened! What comes out? Demons! Millions of them!

"…a different spirit, which you did not receive, or a different gospel…" (v 4).

  • Is not Sunday-keeping a different gospel?
  • Is not all the pagan holidays a different gospel?
  • Is not going to heaven a different gospel?
  • Is not just faith and grace with no Law a different gospel?

On top of that, they have the Word of God with them so they know what to do! But they won't do it!

"…which you did not accept, you put up with it as something good" (v 4).

Whenever you put up with sin, Satan comes along this way:

Verse 13: "For such are false apostles… [there's a lot of them] …deceitful workers…"

You will see on one of the Church At Home segments {} about what real repentance is. There's a Protestant preacher there who says that you don't have to worry about what you do because the Law has been done away. If there is no Law there is no sin, so you can't sin! Right out in the open!

"…deceitful workers who are transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And it is no marvel, for Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore, it is no great thing if his servants also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness—whose end shall be according to their works" (vs 13-15).

  • What do we have today?
  • What am I getting at?
  • Where is this coming to?

Right now they're trying to bring this in force into the world, this whole one-world system. They may have so much resistance that they may have to change how they're going to approach doing it. That is they must bring in the pope. The pope will accept all religions.

Remember what we read with the immerging church? They said that you don't have to preach Christ to them, because they're already saved.

Revelation 13:2: "And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, and his feet like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion; and the dragon gave him his power, and his throne and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it were slain to death, but his deadly wound was healed; and the whole earth was amazed and followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon…" (2-4)—Satan!

Do they openly worship Satan today? Openly as never before!

There has been some pushing back of SatanCon2023. What is that? That's a great convention of satanist, who worship Satan and follow Satan! They're going to meet in Boston and they're going to have the 'Hexennacht,' which is the witches' day; in Boston!

Christian 'prayer warriors' raise alarm over Boston's SatanCon 2023: 'Using the supernatural' {}

SatanCon 2023, which is scheduled April 28-30 in Boston, marks The Satanic Temple's [TST] 10-year anniversary, according to its website. The theme of the gathering is "Hexennacht in Boston," translated from German for "Witches' Night," which marks the ancient pagan holiday of May Eve.

They are dedicating Satan's Temple in Boston. When they have that gathering, the mayor of Boston is going to make them wear masks. I don't see what good that's going to do, because their germs are not physical, but spiritual.

Satanic Temple Opens Clinic for "Religious Abortions" Named After Catholic Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito's Mother

Look at that idol (shown in article). A goat! I wonder why Azazel is a goat? Satan openly proclaims himself as a goat, and his name is Baphomat:

The Baphomat statue is seen in the conversion room at the Satanic Temple in Salem, Massachusetts

That's where they supposedly killed a lot of witches!

The Devil Goes Down to New Mexico

The Satanic Temple isn't just promoting the killing of unborn babies in abortions anymore….

I'll read it later, but the IRS has recognized them as a legitimate religious organization

…It's actually killing them through a new "religious" abortion practice they have opened in New Mexico.

They have setup an abortion clinic! What did the decision on Roe vs Wade do? It didn't outlaw abortion, it sent it back to the states! New Mexico upholds abortion. Guess who is going to facilitate that? The Satanic Temple!

…The satanic group will officially launch a new "religious medical services arm"…

Religion! What is the weakness of the Constitution in America? Freedom of any religion you want! That violates the Laws of God! The reason that He said that you are not to have other religions and other gods is because God knows that Satan will bring it to this.

TST Health, to begin doing abortions. The Satanic Temple believes aborting unborn babies is a religious "ritual" and compares it to communion or baptism for Christians.

The question becomes: What do they do with these bodies of these babies that are aborted. Everybody better take a look at the Mayan civilization with human sacrifice, devil worship… By the way, the picture of their main god is not an Indian, he's an African. His name in the Bible is called Nimrod! Human sacrifice on a scale unimagined by us.

  • Will they take the blood of the infant and drink it in a ritual ceremony to Satan?
  • What will they do?

Once you go down the path of sin, it gets worse and worse and worse until you are totally absorbed by Satan!

They have a teleconference so one can get a prescription for abortion pills, or they can come to their clinic.

"The Samuel Alito's Mom's Satanic Abortion Clinic" in New Mexico will offer abortion drugs to women ages 17 and up who are up to 11 weeks of pregnancy. The FDA does not recommend abortion drugs after 10 weeks.

According to a press release from the group, "anyone in New Mexico seeking to perform The Satanic Temple's abortion ritual will be able to receive free online medical services."

Licensed medical workers will screen patients during a virtual appointment, and then prescribe abortion drugs through pharmacies that will mail them in "a discreet package," the group said. Women will be charged a pharmacy fee of about $90, it continued. The satanic group also set up a 24-hour abortion hotline.

This is what they claim!

The Satanic Temple claims to have 700,000 members internationally, and it is a recognized religion by the IRS.

  • How are you going to get rid of that? You're not!
  • What's going to happen? There's going to be a confrontation of those who don't want it, which has already taken place!

But there's also going to be a lot of people sucked right up into that and controlled by Satan!

The satanic group claims killing unborn babies in abortions is a religious ritual, and restricting it violates its "fundamental tenets," according to an article on Glenn Beck's website….

What are they going to do when it gets to the Supreme Court? They're making lawsuits everywhere to setup these satanic abortions clinics!

The supposed religion claims to have "seven fundamental tenets," including one that teaches, "One's body is inviolable, subject to one's own will alone." In its lawsuits, the group claims abortion restrictions and bans violate this teaching as well as an "abortion ritual" that its members perform.

What will the Supreme Court do?

It likens the "ritual" slaughter of unborn babies…

What sort of ritual do they do?

…to communion or baptism for Christians. In 2020, it even raffled off an abortion to raise money for its lawsuits.

 "Their willingness to flaunt the practice of ending innocent human life as a ritualistic sacrifice shows how New Mexico public officials have cooperated with this evil by turning the state into the thriving taxpayer-funded abortion capital of the Southwest and even America," Martinez said.

The Satanic Temple claims to have 700,000 members…

Do you think that they're going to put that down? No!

'Satanic Temple' Joins Planned Parenthood in Pro-Abortion Crusade

The Satanic Temple is deeply involved in abortion advocacy. Breitbart once described its work as a "pro-abortion crusade to come to the aid of America's largest abortion provider," Planned Parenthood.

They're going to join up together. One satanic group now joining with Satan himself, openly! That's an amazing thing!

It has filed multiple lawsuits in different states to overturn pro-life laws…

So, there's a battle coming between pro-lifers and the satanists! Remember the letter I wrote when Roe vs Wade was turned over. Everyone was hailing what a victory. I said, 'No! That was only one battle! Now you have 50!' At that time I knew nothing of this!

…Though its attempts thus far have failed. Other recent lawsuits include a challenge to the Texas heartbeat law, which pro-life advocates say has saved at least 20,000 unborn babies' lives thus far.

The satanic group also is pushing its beliefs on young children. Recently, the group began opening clubs in elementary schools.

  • Guess what they are approving in elementary schools? Satan Clubs after school!
  • What will that lead to?

Earlier this month you probably saw this on television. Did you see where they took down the statue of Teddy Roosevelt and put up a statue of a female goddess. She had coming out of her head two horns that look like serpents. The satanists got that there.

New York City Erects Satanic Statue on City Courthouse to Promote Abortion

They erected a golden statue to abortion on top of a city courthouse. Many described as a naked woman with horns as demonic and satanic.

Where will all this go? Let's look at a couple of other things here.

Timothy 2:25: "In meekness correcting those who set themselves in opposition; if perhaps God may grant them repentance unto acknowledging of the Truth."

That's if people are reasonable! Once you get on Satan's side, you're no longer reasonable.

Verse 26: "And that they may wake up and escape from the devil's snare, who have been taken captive by him to do his will.

I'm bringing all of this up, and we're saying, 'Oh, this is terrible, bad, evil, rotten!' It is, without a doubt! But who are they going to come after in the final analysis? They'll come after us! We need to be strong in the Lord!

Let's see that Satan is after ministers, after brethren, and read Rev. 2 & 3, Satan is involved with all the problems of the seven churches.

1-Pet. 5—Peter wrote this to the elders for them in what they need to do; but this applies to everyone:

1-Peter 5:6: "Be humbled, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that He may exalt you in due time; casting all your cares upon Him, because He cares for you" (vs 5-7).

So, in the midst of all of this evil, though it's depressing, though it will tend to take you down, don't let it do it!

Verse 8: "Be sober! Be vigilant!…."—meaning to do in a dedicated, repeated way as on guard, as Roger brought out in his message: Be One Guard and Watch. Be vigilant, don't let down!

"…For your adversary the devil is prowling about as a roaring lion, seeking anyone he may devour" (v 8).

Think about it today, he's after the kids in school. Think about what they're going to grow up to be. They have all of this sexualization education beginning in kindergarten and all the way through. So, by the time they graduate from high school they're nothing but sexual animals who don't have thought because their minds are all messed up because of Satan the devil!

Verse 9: "Whom resist, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are being fulfilled among your brethren who are in the world."

James 4:6: "But He gives greater grace. This is the reason it says, 'God sets Himself against the proud, but He gives grace to the humble.' Therefore, submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you" (vs 6-7).

How do you do that? If evil thoughts come into your mind, rebuke them in your mind in the name of Christ! Find out what the source of it is and where it comes from and don't let it continue. If there are demons in people and they can't be cast out, you have to stay away from them, no way around it. Here's the other thing we need to do"

Verse 8: "Draw near to God…" How? Through study and prayer! God is talking to us through His Word; these are the words of God to us today.

  • Who would have thought, who would have thought?
  • How far back do we go?
  • I'm 62 years from baptism!

I would never have thought that satanism would come out in the open with their own temples, being endorsed by the IRS as a legal religion. That they would be granted license of human sacrifice through abortion. That's why we need to draw near to God!

"…and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded! Be grieved and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into grieving, and your joy into mourning. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you" (vs 8-10).

That's the lesson for us today. Satan has the world almost—not quite—completely in his control. He's had the religionists for a long time. What are they going to do with all religions. They're so watered down that they're going to agree to help solve the problems of the world by coming together so there can be a one-world government. You wait! It's coming!

This pope may die, so we will have to wait and see what the next pope will be. Europe has not risen to a point of power, yet; but it will! When we see the King of the North and the King of the South we better all stay close to God, because all hell is going to break loose!There's going to be plenty of things that are going to happen, because Satan will be out there:

  • in full power
  • in full glory
  • in full control

Satan will control all of those who have the mark of the beast!

Remember what I wrote about with transhumanism. They'll put a chip in your brain and you'll be smarter. Don't you think that all of these dumb people growing now want to be smarter? Give me a chip and so I'll be smarter!

But they never tell you what's programmed into the chip to control you: your thoughts and your actions! They want to get  digital currency, which is coming, so they will know:

  • who you are
  • where you are
  • what you buy
  • what you don't buy

The digital currency unfolded will be the last step for the mark of the beast!

How bad will it get? We don't know! But we better be prepared for whatever comes so that we can always be faithful to God. If they come and get us and take us, that's happened before and it will happen again! That's prophesied.

That's why we need to understand that we need to stay close to God. Just like we're admonished here: Draw near to God!
