I was woken by the Holy Spirit in the early morning hours of December 14th and given a message as to why evil things happen in the world. I had no knowledge that just a few hours later a massacre would take place at the hands of Ryan Lanza in Newtown, Connecticut. After I learned of the killing spree that took the lives of 20 children and 6 adults, it became clear that I needed to address this issue on Sunday morning. It is impossible to walk away from this mass murder and act like it did not happen and therefore important for Christian leaders to speak out and give direction to people who are bewildered and filled with grief.

WAS THIS A CONSPIRACY?

Was the shooter part of a conspiracy? Yes, but not in the way most people would imagine. Ryan Lanza wasn’t part of a secret plot of the CIA but there most certainly was a conspiracy of evil that is directed by the Devil. Most people have been educated to reject any notion of conspiracy and label people who talk about it as “mentally unstable” but the Bible states there is a conspiracy in the spirit world that also manifests itself in the physical world and in a religious setting.

“There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.” (Ezekiel 22:25)

The purpose of this satanic conspiracy is to usher in a one-world government under the rule of Satan. The first such attempt was recorded in Genesis 11:1-9 in which God intervened and destroyed the tower they were trying to build, changed the world language into hundreds of different languages and scattered the people all over the world. While God obstructed that instance, He is going to allow Satan at the end of time to create a one-world government. (Revelation 13:1-18) This world government is going to be led by a man that will be empowered by Satan.  

“And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” (Revelation 13:2)

It might be that many people do not know the identity of the dragon, and for this reason I am going to show you where the Bible identifies this individual.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Revelation 12:9)

THERE MUST BE CHAOS

In order to bring in a world government Satan must create so much chaos that the people of the earth will beg for a strong world leader to step in and take over. The cry of the people will be that the world cannot continue to be divided into nations, instead, the world must become one to eliminate all wars and create economic stability. Satan will furnish his man under deception. He will not be introduced as a Satanist, instead, he will be introduced as a benign man who cares for people and genuinely wants to bring peace and stability to the world.

Two things need to happen in order for Satan to take over the world. First, there must be chaos, and secondly, people must be disarmed. Only two nations currently allow its law abiding citizens to bear arms, Switzerland and the United States. Since Switzerland is a small nation and does not have a lot of influence in the world, the focus of Satan is on the United States. The second amendment of the Constitution is a major roadblock for Satan, and the only way he can remove it is to create so much havoc and pain on the people, that they are willing to give up their rights.

GUN CONTROL

Satan must work through people who are loyal to him and willing to see the plan through even if the desired result doesn’t come in their lifetime. Such a group exists in the socialists/Marxist/communists. They disguise themselves as liberals and always talk about caring for the workers and the poor people. It is strange that the leaders among them do not come from a poor background, but are mostly from well-to-do families, with a multi-million dollar annual income.

Americans are freedom loving people and these leaders haven’t been able persuade the public to give up their guns. Therefore they must create chaos and whip the public into such a frenzy that it will give them the momentum to ban ownership of firearms.

This is nothing new and was carried out in Germany during the 1930’s. Before Hitler became a dictator, he was appointed Chancellor of Germany, and one of his first political moves was to strip the German people of their rights to own guns. He was able to take over the nation once he disarmed the people and armed his storm troopers.

Satan’s leadership on earth seeks to whip up the emotions of people and make them to think irrationally. Gun control is about disarming law abiding citizens! No criminal or terrorist is going to obey a gun control law. But when emotions run high, people do not think rationally and can be manipulated into giving up their firearms.

The governments in Europe have stripped law abiding citizens of the right to own guns while the criminals and terrorists have all the guns they want because they do not obey laws anyways.

Anders Breivik met no opposition when he started to shoot people on July 22, 2011 in Norway. Before armed police were able to arrive at the scene, he had murdered 77 young people and wounded 242 others. If there had been an armed citizen on the island where the killing took place, the death toll could have been significantly reduced. But the law abiding citizens did not have any guns.

MASS KILLERS

Over the last 20 years there have been a number of mass murders in the world, most of them occurring in the United States. It is not normal for a person to kill someone else. You could say it is ungodly, even demonic to go out and kill people. Ryan Lanza was not under the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the Newtown school shooting but was possessed by demonic powers. Thus it is logical to conclude that Satan is the controller of all the mass killers since he wants to inflict as much harm as possible. In order to have the maximum impact upon normal people, he will make sure that the murders are especially gruesome.

To possess people with his demons, Satan must first weaken the Church of Jesus Christ, which he has steadily done for the last 200 years. He has convinced pastors there are no such things as demon possession/oppression, it is just folklore.  The fact that the Bible teaches the opposite doesn’t matter since many pastors really don’t believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God.

Once the Devil had neutralized the Church, he started to destroy the minds of young people through vile movies and television programming, bloody and graphic video games, pornography, homosexuality and an immoral lifestyle.

Satan has laid a solid foundation for his work with the removal of Bible reading and prayer from public schools. Students are taught the atheistic theory of evolution which says we are nothing more than glorified apes. They are encouraged to fornicate and practice safe sex through the use of birth control. Is it any wonder we are raising hell children and are beginning to reap what we’ve sown?

Satan has a vast pool of people from whom to pick killers, and once he is done with them, the demons of suicide will take them out. As long as there are demon possessed people, there will also be mass killings until the day that people in the world are so traumatized that they willingly surrender to the “Man of Peace,” that the Bible calls the “Beast” or the “Antichrist.”

WHAT SHOULD CHRISTIANS DO?

In having identified mass killings as a spiritual problem, every pastor, evangelist and Sunday school teacher should wake up and call upon God to send us a revival which begins in the heart of each one of us. God is not going to start a revival among the sinners; He always starts in the church.

We need to repent for the way we have treated the Bible and for all the false teaching that we have allowed in our churches. Revival will never start with a group of people but with one person at a time.

Did you know that the death rate in the world is around 150,000 people per day? That means there will be 150k deaths in a 24 hour period. Where do you think they will end up? Most of them probably weren’t born again and will end up in hell.

You would wail in agony if you could stay at the entrance to hell for a day and see the throngs of people being led in chains by God’s angels to begin serving time for their rejection of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Are we crying in agony for these men, women, boys and girls entering a place of torment that one day will be moved to the Lake of Fire where they will face even more torment day and night forever? Did I grieve over the young children that were killed in Newtown and for their teachers who died with them? Yes, but I am grieving even deeper for the people who end up in hell with no hope of ever getting out.

WHAT IS A REVIVAL?

A revival is when you understand with your innermost being what it means to die and be eternally separated from God. If only you could hear the screams of men and women who just died, and as they step out of their bodies, angels will handcuff them and take them to hell. When they arrive in hell, screaming, sobbing and staring in unbelief at the huge line waiting to be processed into God’s jail, they will look at each other and say, “We were told there was no hell.”

As they slowly inch their way through the process line, imagine how they will curse their teachers, the court system, movie producers and the television commentators who lead them astray. But worse yet will be the lack of truth from the television evangelists and mega pastors who are also to be blamed for their fate. Others will cry out to Jesus, begging for mercy. There will many who will try to repent and dedicate their lives to Jesus, but instead of hearing the soft loving voice of Jesus, they hear the cold voices of the angels telling them that it is too late. Their time on earth is over and they are now condemned to eternal torment.

Are you saved? Have you been born again? Is your name written in the Book of Life? Do you trust in your own goodness to save you? If you have been saved, do you have compassion for those who are perishing? Do you weep over the sinners? The people on earth are depending upon Christians to tell them about Jesus. Are you living a holy life that stands out? Are you living a life that will convict people over their sins? The destiny of the lost is in the hands of God’s people.

“After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:1-2)

 


 

Are You Ready?
By Darl Dinger

 

Time as we know it
Is ending fast
Jesus said to us
Live this day as if it were your last.

Yes, live your life
For all the world to see
Live this last day
As you’re living for Me.

The end times are here
Devastation and woe
It is written in My Word
So that you would understand and know.

Earthquakes and floods
Fire and disease
What must I do
Before you bow your knees?

Your government tried to remove Me
From all of your lives
But it has only brought you
Struggle and strife.

My pastures are pure
Yes, they are clean
But only with the Spiritual eyes
Can they be seen.

My coming is soon
Make no mistake
Give me all of your love
And don’t always take.

I will remember you
In this desolate land
Always remember you are written
On the palm of My hand.

I will protect and comfort you
In your time of need.
If you will listen to Me
And My Word you will heed...

Love your brother
And sister, too
Be kind to the stranger
You know what to do.

Nothing is hidden
All will be seen
Whether you are gentle
Or whether you are mean.

Yes, live your life
In a loving way.
You don’t know
If this is your last day.
