The Alarming Rise of Satanic Spiritual Warfare Against Families
It is the dream of every dedicated Christian: A core group of at least two dozen worshipers and several newcomers of all ages, from children to senior citizens, all coming together to attend Church and all on a Friday evening! This dream turns into a nightmare when you discover that it is the Greater Church of Lucifer and it’s part of an influential new wave of Satanic activity worldwide.
Satanic activity tends to come and go in waves, with mostly hereditary Satanists carrying the tradition forward in secret during quieter times. With each new surge they seem to get more sophisticated but also become more blatantly obvious about what they are doing. This time the various covens and lodges are organizing. They are combining forces on a level not seen in generations and if we don’t act fast, they may be here to stay. If these are truly the End Times, as many of us believe, the mainstream tolerance of Luciferianism is the final stage that allows for the rise of the Antichrist.
The opening scenario is not fictional. The Greater Church of Lucifer is very real [Their website is http://greaterchurchoflucifer.org/ ] and has regular meetings in major urban centres around the world including Brazil, Canada, New Zealand and Norway to name a few however the majority seem to be right here in the USA. The Greater Church of Lucifer is an aggressively spreading upstart which has already recruited multiple influential and charismatic leaders. Similarly, the New York based Satanic Temple is a new kid on the block but has been receiving national attention through its controversial publicity stunts aimed at ridiculing Christianity while giving the impression of fighting for civil rights.
Both groups are gaining the ear of not only a new generation but also now attracting an older crowd. Many of these are former hippies that have been involved in occult practices for decades and are being swept up in the energy of the new Satanism. The adult children of hippies have been raised in the occult and are sometimes found to join their parents in exploring Satanism and bringing the grandkids along for the ride.

Some people are lured into these groups by the thought of participating in a cause but damn their souls in the process. It may seem like fun and games to some but to those at the top it is very serious. Keep in mind that some people joining these groups are well meaning people. Others will simply be acting out rebellion. It is important that we understand this when we witness to them.
The latest assault on Christian families comes again from The Satanic Temple, who seek to distribute Satanic literature to our children in school. This includes an activity book for very young children. The activities mix a spoonful of sugar with the poison of devil worship and even go so far as to have children draw an upside down Satanist star in a circle in a connect-the-dots game.
In addition, the well established Satanic organizations such as the Church of Satan founded in the 1960’s and its offshoot group The Temple of Set [Set being the Egyptian name of Satan] are seeing a resurgence in membership. There are other less well known groups that have small but loyal followings. These older groups have often been around long enough to get legal recognition as religious institutions!
Despite their differences and past disputes, these established organizations have been seen working hand-in-hand with one another as well as with the newer groups. See for example the International Left Hand Path Conference recently held in Indianapolis, Indiana featuring Church of Satan media representative Corvis Nocturnum alongside some of the newer groups. The event photographer Jake Block is a well known Elder from the Sect of the Horned God! http://lefthandpathcon.wordpress.com/photos-by-jake-block
Here in the USA many experts point to the increasing saturation of occult themes in popular culture. Former Satanist turned Christian author Jeff Harshbarger states, “Our society is submerged in the occult; Harry Potter has filled the minds of our children for a decade and vampirism meets our teens with the illusions of grandeur. Witchcraft went mainstream decades ago, and Wicca is its offspring, ‘Christian’ witchcraft is on the up-rise and new age spirituality fills the church pews” – http://www.christianpost.com/news/american-society-submerged-in-the-occult-says-ex-satanist-91503
As mentioned before, while many of these groups are based in the USA, this is a global phenomenon. A Canadian publication recently published an article titled, “Catholics call for more exorcists to fight rise of Satanism.” – http://o.canada.com/news/catholics-call-for-more-exorcists-to-fight-rise-of-satanism
Here are a few excerpts:
“The six-day meeting in Rome aims to train about 200 Roman Catholic priests from more than 30 countries in how to cast evil out from people who believe themselves to be in thrall to the Devil.”
“About 250 priests were trained as exorcists in Italy, but many more were needed, the conference organizers claimed.”
“Demonic possession manifests itself in people babbling in foreign languages, shaking uncontrollably and vomiting nails, pieces of metal and shards of glass, according to those who believe in the phenomenon.”
So we see that even the Roman Catholic Church is strengthening their forces against the latest surge of occultism and satanic practices around the world. If you have found all of this unsettling, you may want to brace yourself. It has become so bad in South Africa that authorities in Johannesburg have been forced to create an Occult Crimes division of the police which has received almost 80 reports in just three months. From the article http://www.iol.co.za/news/crime-courts/rise-in-satanic-crimes-among-black-youth-1.1653647
“Occult-related crimes are increasing, especially in black areas where boys and girls are promised fame and riches.”
He said his unit had recently received calls from parents who had told investigators their children were drinking blood.
“It’s all over Gauteng. It pops up, goes down and then appears again.”
Let us gather all of our loved ones to pray to our Lord Jesus Christ that we are able to stem and reverse the tide of Luciferianism here in the United States before it reaches that level, and let us pray for the Christians of South Africa that they may endure such a hostile environment. Christ Jesus, may it strengthen their faith and ours and prepare us all for the spiritual battle already upon us. In Jesus’ name we pray.
If this is the final lead-up to Armageddon, it is imperative that we save as many souls as possible, starting with your own! Renew your commitment to Jesus. The scriptures assure us that Christ will come as a thief in the night, taking us all unaware for none of us shall know the day or the hour except for God Himself. Therefore if you haven’t been saved, do not hesitate to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour! If not, you may have an eternity to think about your mistake.
