but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness,
against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
The evil one has an unlimited number of lines attack. Some are just more insidious and evil than others.
We must be careful what we open on the internet.
For example, this past month my wife went to her computer in the morning, only to learn that a virus had completely blacked out her computer, wiping out all data. We have no idea how this happened, she is very careful. It took me a few hours to get it fixed, but only after reloading a new operating system and starting over.
This clearly shows the need for back-up, but also it exposes an ever present force:
How else can we explain the logic that would inspire someone to spend the time to create a virus that would attack and destroy millions of computers of people they have never even met? It’s EVIL.
But that is only one line of attack of the evil one. Recently, a friend forwarded a video clip to me that had been posted on the internet by the drug cartel in Mexico, on our border. The logic of my friend who sent me the clip, who is a hardened war veteran was that he wanted me to understand the depth of the problem on our border, and how near we are to evil. I only wish I did not watch that evil. The sight of men being beheaded with a chainsaw is now etched in my memory. I will not describe the remainder of the clip or the men who carried out their work with the casualness of a gardener trimming a tree.
The only thing I can say is: EVIL.
These poor victims were sons, husbands, and fathers to someone, and they were treated like less than garbage to be left for the vultures. And their only crime was to somehow cross evil incarnate.
This is not an isolated incident. Recently, when a policeman was sent to investigate the killing of an American jet skier in cold blood, on a Texas/Mexico border lake; the officer was killed and beheaded within a few short days. That ended the police investigation.
And last month police found a newswoman's decapitated body alongside the road in Nuevo Laredo, with a handwritten sign saying she was killed in retaliation for her postings on a social networking site providing the location of drug dealers. The sign read as follows: “I'm The Laredo Girl, and I'm here because of my reports, and yours," the message read. "For those who don't want to believe, this happened to me because of my actions, for believing in the army and the navy. Thank you for your attention, respectfully, Laredo Girl...ZZZZ. This poor woman was the eighth journalist murdered by the Mexican drug cartels this year.
Why is our government allowing for this evil cancer to continue to expand and operate unopposed? Our military could easily wipe this scum off the map in a matter of months. We should join forces with Mexico and exterminate this evil that is infecting the Mexican border. If we do not control our border and the evil that is pushing across ... in a short time they will have total control of both sides of the border.
Our politicians who refuse to deal with this problem should each be forced to live in Nuevo Laredo for a few months in order to get a clearer understanding of the depth of the problem that they are refusing to deal with. Perhaps President Obama, Eric Holder, and Janet Napolitano should be the first three to spend a few months down there with their families, in order to give them a clearer understanding.
Evil comes in many forms, some worse than others. Cancer would spread through our body in a way similar to my wife’s computer virus, if we allowed it. But no, if we discovered cancer in our body we will do whatever is needed to remove it quickly. What about the mental input into one's mind by evil forces that eventually controls their actions and thinking? This form of evil is stealth, very well hidden, silent but very deadly!
The evil result is accomplished in a short time period: normal people soon become crazed drug cartel killers with a chainsaw; or Iranian Muslims demanding that a Christian pastor be hanged simply because he questioned the fact that his two small children were being forced into the evil Iranian Islamic religious mind control school system.
How are these Islamic fanatics any different than those that flew the planes into the twin towers on 911; or the maniac with the chain saw? The same forces of evil are directing all of these killers.
And how is the Iranian Muslim Brotherhood any different than the ones our foolish government has had our troops fighting alongside in Libya and is also now working alongside in Egypt and other middle eastern countries? There is no difference. They all have the same end in sight … either they will rule; or they will behead the infidels. Those who have been brainwashed with this ideology are a political movement hiding behind a religion, and they should be treated as the enemies that they clearly have shown themselves to be.
Pray for this persecuted Iranian Christian Pastor, Yusef Nadarkhani and his family. He has done nothing beyond being a Christian, and his Muslim fanatical accusers have now convicted him to a sentence of death, and are plotting to kill him. His supposed crime is that he refused to renounce his faith in Christ, and embrace the Muslim religion. In many similar cases, I am told that if the execution is carried out, that the victims family is also murdered as well ... in this case, the pastor has a wife and two small children. Forward this post ... pressure must be brought on the Iranian government to reverse this act of evil. I wonder if the Iranians will ransom him off, like they did recently with the lost hikers who were captured along the Iranian border. These people are insane!
often contradict the wisdom of the world. Since we have been programmed by the world ... we have come to accept these worldly ideas as truth ... but when we consider God’s perspective ... we come to understand ... "the Lord's ways are not our ways"
Don't just read these writings ... meditate and pray over God's Word ... Listen to the Holy Spirit ... and be transformed by renewing your mind. He who died on our behalf wants you to ... allow the love of Christ to control you ... so that you might become ... the righteousness of God in Him.
