Works of Satan: “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:44, 45
September 2016 – IRAQ – Islamic State militants have reportedly stitched four people’s mouth shut with wire simply because they were talking about military victories against the heinous terrorist group. According to Sputnik News, IS (also known as ISIS and ISIL) jihadis used metal wire to stitch the four victims’ mouths shut on Tuesday in the group’s Iraqi stronghold of Mosul because they were all involved in a conversation discussing the successes of the Iraqi Army in its offensive against IS.
“Four of our residents were discussing the success of the army in a casual conversation about politics, when another man suddenly joined in. He casually discussed with them the defeat of ISIS and offensive operations in Nineveh,” a Mosul resident, who chose to remain nameless due to fear of retaliation from IS, told Sputnik International. “Later, all four people were caught. Right where they were standing, their mouths were sewn up with metal wire.” The resident said the victims were then placed in an open trunk of a car and driven around the town to intimidate other residents and keep them from speaking about government victories. The source also explained that IS employs spies in the town who watch out for and report on residents who talk about the successes of the Armed Forces of Iraq. The source added that anyone who is caught discussing the “enemy” is subject to public punishment. –Christian Post (Left – The occult Tarot Death Card and the ISIS flag)
Satanism comes in many guises and hides in the cloak of many so called “religious entities,” including ISIS. The character of Satanism is all the same: lies, lust, and the insatiable blood lust for victims for violence, death, and the defilement of innocence. Even Pope Paul VI “alluded somberly that ‘the smoke of Satan has entered the Sanctuary (Vatican).’
ISIS slices youths in half with a chainsaw: Bloodthirsty Islamic State executioners have sliced nine youths in half with a chainsaw in a gruesome public execution, it has been claimed. The youngsters, thought to be in their teens, were accused of belonging to an anti-resistance faction, sources in Mosul reported. An ISIS sharia court reportedly stated that they should be tied to an iron pole in the center of Tal Afar Square in Mosul and then sliced in two with an electric chainsaw.
The source told Iraqi News: “ISIS fighters have executed nine youths of Mosul. The outfit accused that these youths belonged to an anti-ISIS resistance faction. The death sentence pronounced by ISIS sharia court stated that the men should be tied to an iron pole in the center of Tal Afar Square in Mosul and then sliced into two with an electric chainsaw.” –Mirror
ISIS turn streets into rivers of burning oil: Apocalyptic scenes as fleeing ISIS fighters bomb Iraqi town’s pipelines leaving rivers of oil and streets on fire. The Islamic militants are being pushed further and further back by Iraqi solders, but are leaving a trail of destruction as they retreat. Fleeing ISIS fighters tried to raze an Iraqi town to the ground by flooding the streets with oil and setting it alight. The murderous jihadists had been forced to retreat from Qayyara by Iraqi soldiers, in the latest US-backed push towards Mosul in the north of the country. But as they fled, ISIS bombed pipelines and set fire to nearby oil wells, creating an endless cloud of black smoke that blocked out the sun and left the town shrouded in darkness.
The Iraq military’s official Twitter account posted images of the aftermath, showing the streets of Qayyara flooded with black oil, some of them on fire. The apocalyptic scenes brought back imagery from the 1991 Persian Gulf War, when Iraqi military forces torched Kuwaiti oil wells while retreating from advancing coalition forces. Abdel Aziz Saleh, a 25-year-old Qayyara resident told Reuters: “They are suffocating us. The birds, the animals are black, the people are black. Gas rains down on us at night. Now the gas has reached the residential areas.” –Mirror
The rise of Satanism in America: In the US, explicitly satanic groups have begun drawing attention to themselves in the context of public governmental ceremonies. Just this month, a member of the so-called Satanic Temple was allowed to make an opening prayer to Lucifer at a local council meeting in Alaska. Assembly members stood around in a circle while the Satanist asked them to “embrace the Luciferian impulse to eat of the tree of knowledge.” She then ended the surreal prayer with the words, “Hail Satan.”
But it seems that Europe may also be heading in the wrong religious direction. In June, several European leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, were present at a bizarre ritual in connection with the opening of the world’s longest tunnel, the new Gotthard tunnel, in Switzerland this past June.The ceremony is performed by masked men dressed in grass costumes, fallen angels descending from the ceiling and a man with a goat’s head, whom the other performers in the ceremony appear to worship. The opening ritual has subsequently been interpreted as depicting satanic scenes from hell. More than one publication, and certainly more conspiracy theorists, slammed the dark performance “Satanic.”
According to The Pew Research Center, religious “nones”, a category that includes atheists, agnostics, and the “nothing in particular” group, make up 23 per cent of US adults, up from 16 per cent in 2007. This group is growing as a percentage of the US population. At the same time, they are becoming increasingly secular, Pew reports, “a trend that also makes the US public overall less religious,” according to surveys made as part of the Religious Landscape Study. But there is more to the story. To begin with, this group is not uniformly nonreligious. Most of them say they believe in God, and about a third says religion is at least somewhat important in their lives.
Seventy percent of those born between 1990 and 1996 with no religious affiliation say religion is not important in their lives. A similar share also report they seldom or never pray and 42 percent say they do not believe in God, according to the Pew study. Obviously, most of the “nones” do not reject faith in “something”, and this often means that they seek some form of spirituality outside a traditional affiliation. Like Satanists also do. But why would one use Satan, a spiritual entity, as figurehead if the aim of their struggle is rationality and freedom from religion? The perception of secular society as nonreligious is quite simply a delusion, as Lesslie Newbigin states in his book The Gospel in a Pluralist Society, in which he also points to a revival of ancient heathen religions, in opposition to Christianity. The paradox is that the religions that have attempted to embrace rationalism perish in modernity, while those that embrace the supernatural elements revive. –RT
We’re making choices we’ll live to regret: Everyone wants to be scared to death by the devil but no one wants to be loved to life by God. The Bible warned there would be a rise in Satanism right before the world ends: “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” 1 Timothy 4:1
Exorcists busier than ever due to rising interest in the occult: The devil must be busier than ever in the new millennium. Exorcism, the ancient rite of casting out Satan and his demons from the souls of the possessed, is thriving in America and was long before recent revelations that Mother Teresa underwent one and Pope John Paul II performed them. “It is a big phenomenon,” J. Gordon Melton, a Methodist minister who directs the Institute for the Study of American Religion, says of exorcisms in the United States. “There is a lot of exorcism going on.” What many might consider an archaic and obscure rite has been front-page news this year. Last week, the Archbishop of Calcutta, Henry Sebastian D’Souza, announced that he ordered an exorcism performed on Mother Teresa before she died in 1997. D’Souza said he thought the Nobel Peace Prize-winning nun possibly was being attacked by the devil, and asked a priest to exorcise it. Mother Teresa is not the only prominent Catholic figure linked to exorcism.
Italian media reported that Pope John Paul II attempted to exorcise evil spirits from a 19-year-old Italian woman last year, although the Vatican said he only blessed her. The Roman Catholic Church’s chief exorcist said the woman displayed superhuman strength, and that the pope’s efforts did not rid her of the hostile spirit. Closer to home, exorcism is increasingly widespread, experts say. –ABC News
