Satan doesn’t come at a society as a whole; no, he attacks individuals whom he can capture that will influence other weak spirited souls and transform that society into something evil, removing individuals along the way in order to separate that society from God. As more and more societal influencers are captured by satan the larger his stronghold in the segment of society becomes. If we look around the American society we can see this as clearly as a we see our own face reflected in a mirror.
If we look around the world we can see this in action today. Those with eyes to see and ears to hear are witnessing the greatest world war in the history of the world. Yes, satan, throughout history, has been honing his skills and defeating small communities, small empires and nation states. If we look back in history we can see it littered with fallen societies that upon closer examination will bear the fruit from the seven judges described in the Book of Judges. You will find particular segments of a society become corrupt and then another and another and another until the society can not longer stand of it’s own accord and so it falls. Rome is the most well known of all the examples. Israel is a close second.
Academia, the arts, health, education, family, charity and government are consumed one-by-one, one individual, one person at at time. Most of us are familiar with the phrase “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” Well, Rome didn’t fall in a day either. It took decades to fall and several Emperor’s before all the roads no longer led to Rome.
America, the U.K., France, Italy, and so many other nations around the world are falling all at the same time. Why? These societies began falling decades ago when satan moved in and began attacking particular identities within the community. It is easier to eat an elephant one bite at time, or boil a frog while lounging in warm water, instead of attempting to swallow an elephant whole. If you place a frog in warm water it will not jump out and if you turn up the temperature slowly it will never jump out and sit there until it is boiled to death. This is what has been happening in the western world since the end of World War I. The very first step was taken in 1913 with the birth of the Federal Reserve System.
For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. ~1 Timothy 6:10 NASB95
Canaanites attack the people of Israel with the identity of the exhorter – exhort is to warn, advise and make urgent appeals.
In the opening chapter of the Book of Judges we learn that Joshua has died and the land the Lord had given him was turned over to several tribes (states). None of the leaders of these tribes kept, or even acknowledged, the Covenant the Lord had made for the land of Israel. Not one. They all ignored the warnings coming from the Angel of the Lord (Jesus), to tell them do not worship other gods, Baal, and do not follow the teachings of two female deities.
The second generation, having forgotten so completely, they never even recognized what the Lord had done for them. This generation would now be enslaved by any nation that comes against them – even to this day! That is a warning, that is an urgent appeal and is, literally, Godly advice. Do not separate from the promises of the Lord and begin to worship other gods; don’t do it.
But it came about when the judge died, that they would turn back and act more corruptly than their fathers, in following other gods to serve them and bow down to them; they did not abandon their practices or their stubborn ways. So the anger of the Lord burned against Israel, and He said, “Because this nation has transgressed My covenant which I commanded their fathers and has not listened to My voice, I also will no longer drive out before them any of the nations which Joshua left when he died, in order to test Israel by them, whether they will keep the way of the Lord to walk in it as their fathers did, or not.” So the Lord allowed those nations to remain, not driving them out quickly; and He did not give them into the hand of Joshua. ~ Judges 2:19-23 NASB95
Looking at our world today we see in 2015 German Chancellor, Angela Merkel invited millions of people, not just into Germany, but into all of Europe. These tribes, from all the nations, have now spread across Europe, with a few exceptions, and are now burning down the Cathedrals and churches of Jesus Christ. These tribes, from all nations, are also transforming the European nations they are invading. They are making them to bow down before another god. The people warned their so-called “leaders” about doing this. The people told their so-called “leaders” to stop the invasion. The leaders did not and have not listened. The nations of Europe are transforming into muslim states. It happens slowly – happening now – then quickly, – coming very, very soon. Sweden, among western nations, has one of the highest incidents of rape in the world. With more than 6,300 rapes bing reported in Sweden in 2021 alone, it doesn’t take much to see how large a problem this is for such a small nation.
So, when we separate from God, and begin worshipping other gods – pride, greed, lust, wrath (anger), gluttony, envy (jealousy) and sloth – God will stand by and allow our free-will to drive the ship. God will say to us, I am here but you keep turning away from Me. God will chase us down if we stray too far, but if we reject His out stretched hand…
Is it possible that we are seeing a global attack on society, through individuals, for the release of demons into the streets, into the school yards, into our homes and into our churches? If one is paying attention there can be only one answer.
Prayer corrects a lot of injustices and sets straight our life, which sets straight our family and the ripple effect from there is to effect the whole of the world. We can do this, we can stop this onslaught of evil at a moments notice. What we must do is notice it is happening. We must seek, first, the Kingdom of God. The moment has arrived, God’s people are the answer to the question.
