I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would preserve our religious freedom and help our judges be wise as a serpent and innocent as doves in dealing with legal challenges from the Satanic Temple.

The Satanic Temple states that they do not worship Satan but the concept of rebellion. Many of the followers are intellectuals.  They state they do not believe in curses or of the Satan in the Bible.  They are deceived and are unknowingly misguided and are led to take stands against the ways of God. They are aggressively pushing for visibility and “rights” in civic life. Intercessors need to pray about these legal efforts to disrupt and destroy what religious freedom means in America.

From Law.com. The case involves a constitutional issue of first impression regarding whether the Satanic Temple should be allowed to lead the prayer that opens each Boston City Council session.

In a first-impression case over whether the Satanic Temple should be allowed to lead the prayer that begins each Boston City Council session, the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts has warned the religious organization against “distracting from the significance” of its otherwise “meaningful legal challenge with potentially broad effect….”

According to the court’s opinion, the Boston City Council begins each session with a prayer. Council members take turns choosing a guest speaker to deliver the invocation. Despite repeated requests for their turn to deliver the prayer, the Satanic Temple has never been invited.

The Satanic Temple challenged the constitutionality of the Boston City Council’s denial of their request to participate and the legislative prayer practice as violations of the establishment clause of the First Amendment, the free speech clause and free exercise clause of the First Amendment, the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment, and the free exercise clause of the Massachusetts Constitution….

On Oct. 22, 2021, the Satanic Temple served a subpoena on then-City Councilor Michelle Wu for a Nov. 2 deposition at their Salem, Massachusetts, location. Wu was the frontrunner in the mayoral race and Election Day was Nov. 2. The city responded that Wu would be unavailable to appear and offered to reschedule. The counsel for the Satanic Temple refused to reschedule the date.

In response, the city provided the Satanic Temple with a list of 47 other people “who might possess relevant information” and who would be “more convenient, less burdensome, and less expensive.” U.S. District Judge Angel Kelley of the District of Massachusetts questioned the motives of the Satanic Temple requesting a deposition of Wu only….

Kelley added, “it is exceptionally bad faith to intentionally notice deposition for a date and time when a party knows the deponent will be unavailable or greatly inconvenienced.” Kelley also took issue with Kezhaya’s explanatory letter to the court, in which he stated his responsibility to his client includes “a sworn duty to do anything short of breaking the law….”

2 Thess 3: 3 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.
3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

Father give your word free course in our nation and be glorified through it. Deliver us from wicked idolatrous men with evil schemes and keep our nation from evil. Thank you for hearing and answering our prayer.

Our founding fathers codified the ‘freedom of religion’ in the Bill of Rights, but unfortunately did not define their intent as being Christian denominational freedom, NOT the allowance of hate-filled false religions such as Islam and Satanism. Many are quoted in their available writings of condemning the Muslim religion as antithetical to Judeo-Christian values.

Please prayerfully consider the evidence of the above statement in these two essays:
1) https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2016/07/13/what-every-american-needs-to-know-about-the-quran-book-review/ AND:
2) https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2015/10/31/the-new-age-movement-the-fallen-serpents-old-lie/

Although we have and will continue to allow the free exercise of any and all religions, we as Biblical Christians need to be able to refute the blatant lies of darkness.
Father, we ask for Your Wisdom in standing against the pervasive error… in Jesus’ Name, AMEN.

First Samuel 15:23
Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.
Father God, I pray please forgive us for not recognizing sin for what it is. Please get rid of all rebellion in us and in our country and cause us to humbly turn away from anything that is not pleasing to You. Cause us to turn toward You and to seek to follow Your ways and to hunger and thirst after Righteousness. Empty us from all sin and fill us with You. Ohhh God, send us Revival I pray, in Jesus Name, Amen

Pennsylvania school board torpedoes After School Satan Club
Wednesday, April 20, 2022 | Tag Cloud Tags: News, Worthy News

(Worthy News) – Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania, put to vote the introduction of an After School Satan Club at Tuesday night’s meeting. The club, which was proposed and pushed by a parent at the school, was initially rejected by the principal.

However, the club was tabled for a probationary vote at the school board meeting Tuesday. The Satanic club was shot down with an 8-1 vote. There are currently four similar clubs operating in U.S. schools across the country, with regular attempts to expand.

“I never thought anything like this would come to the district… I don’t want my son to be exposed to anything of the sort,” parent Amy Wintermyer told local Fox 43. [ Source (Read More…) ]

John 8:44
“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: he is a liar, and the father of it.”

Brothers and sisters in christ, please consider that when a spokesperson for the satanic temple says they do not worship satan, they are most likely lying, because they serve the father of lies. They also describe their views as humanistic, in attempt to seem harmless. But humanism is satanism disguised as intellect. Humanism is the evil behind all genocides. Humanist “reverence for life“ puts forth the idea that all life is equally sacred. So, in extreme, humanism teaches that we are no better than the insects splattered against our windshields. Throughout history, this belief has led entire cultures to believe that opposing people-groups are subhuman, and justifiably exterminated. Take the worldwide culture of infanticide as an example.

Father of Jesus, we thank you for the Holy Spirit and we thank you for loving us. Thank you for accepting our love, and teaching us to love. Please open the eyes of our hearts in the body of Christ to see the depth and reality of the spiritual warfare at hand. Help us to see that this warfare is nothing new, and nothing to be scared of. Teach us to take on the easy yoke of Christ and be clothed with humility and the whole armor of God. Help us to understand our inheritance as your children, and to know that we are seated in heavenly places with Christ when we abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Abba Father we submit to you, and stand with you against the devil, and claim the victory of Christ over a defeated foe as he flees from us. Father, we worship You, honor You, we thank You, and love You,
In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

John 8
Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on My own, but He sent Me.
43Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you are unable to accept My message. 44You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies. 45But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me!

Dear Lord, would you prepare Lucien Greave to meet You? In his present condition, he is unable to accept Jesus Christ. He says he doesn’t worship the devil but in his opposition to You, he is doing just that. I pray Lucien will have a moment with The Messiah and he too will be overcome, repent and say, “I believe You are my Lord and My God!” I pray this is done openly for all to see and hear. I ask this in the Name of The Risen Christ, Amen.

This is one reason we need to be protesting the IRS granting “satanist churches” by whatever labels they may call themselves the status of 501c3 or or any other status that “legally recognizes” them as a “religious” organization.
If not protesting in the flesh, protest it in PRAYER (and possibly fastings).
How dare these spiritually uncircumcised come onto the land dedicated to God and try to claim equal standing with God or as God! DOWN with false religions–every knee must bow before the King of kings and the Lord of lords.

God’s Bible for us states this: “Neither give place to the devil.” It also says, “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” We must remember that Satan (Lucifer) was once created by God Himself, but “fell” when he espied to be God, (see Ezekiel 28 and Isaiah 14.

It would be a good idea to contact the people at UnderstandingTheThreat.Com
They could likely research this temple and assist with the case. This “temple” may not be a temple at all, but the UTT people would know how to research. The claims made, “Satanism is more about personal sovereignty, independence and freedom of will” – appear to be the same claims made by the Muslim Brotherhood and hundreds of affiliated organizations, when, indeed the Muslim Brotherhood is a Marxist terrorist organization and is not a religion at all as proved by the laws they swear to live by. Do not be fooled! Most Sincerely, Ann

Lucien Greaves is the cofounder of the satanic temple

“Greaves says he has received many death threats, and deliberately does not use his legal name to avoid threats to his family.”

“Greaves has publicly stated that he does not worship Satan nor do followers of The Satanic Temple. Instead, Greaves claims that Satanism is more about personal sovereignty, independence and freedom of will.”

This man, whatever his name, is Harvard educated and probably has enjoyed a good life. I have prayed for him but not recently. I will resume this effort.

https://biblehub.com/bsb/psalms/139.htm

Dear Father God, You created Lucien Greaves. You saw his body as it was being formed in his mothers’ womb. He cannot escape You. He cannot run from Your presence. You saw every one of his days before he lived his first. He represents devil worship but says, “not.” He seeks to have sovereignty, independence and free will. He seeks to control what he has absolutely no ability to understand in his present state. 🎵Have thine own way Lord, Have thine own way, You are the potter, he is the clay🎵 May the words of his mouth celebrate the One God, the Sovereign God, the One who Authored free will. May he praise Jesus Christ in prayer. Amen

A judge should throw the case out for lack of standing. Since they admit to not really believing in Satan, they are in fact atheists and any attempt to take one religion’s bad guy and turn him into their good guy is disingenuous. If they have a problem with any or all religion, they need to use their own atheism to make their case to the US population.

Let us pray now; that our national, state and local governments will open their eyes and stop compromising with the devil. The US is a Christian nation not a pagan nation and that our nations church’s stop compromising with the devil and it’s followers. The US Government was created by Godly leaders, so we can give reverence to a righteous and holy God. Satan is an enemy of God; therefore Satan is an enemy of mankind. The enemy only comes to kill, steal and destroy. That our nation stop holding hands with the serpent. God please wake up not only our leaders but our church leaders as well. Amen.

The Lord clearly had me to pray a simple prayer. If these people who are from the satanic temple are permitted to pray, then by the powerful blood Jesus, let another rise and offer a simple response.: “ I thank You Father for the blood of Your Son, Jesus; that we overcome by His blood and the word of our testimony. You surely don’t want anyone left out or deceived, God, so thank You now for canceling out every vain imagination that has risen up in judgment against You, and Your word. Thank You that it’s our spiritual heritage to condemn every negative word that rises up against Your own. After all Lord, You have the final say, and we know that every knee will bow to Jesus and every tongue will confess to God. Romans 14:11-12. So we take authority and do that just now, and bless You, for You are greater ! May our country turn from its wicked ways, and seek Your face, with all our hearts. Amen.”

    Exactly right- I agree..and.. intercessor in the comment above this one,-Deborah Brown also stated- the truth..in that we applyand pray the blood of Jesus over this situation.. if we are going to plead anything or pray anything-, and as Dale Brown has stated here- which I agree with 100%.. No Satanist should ever be considered as one who has constitutional rights. Our country is founded on God’s Word- the Bible.
    That is where our constitution emanates from.. This was not designed so that a devil worshiper could come to a forum and claim the same citizenship- or voting rights- as a normal citizen or a God-fearing citizen. So the simple answer here is they should be sent away with their hat in their hand.. Not considered to have any rights in anything having to do with a public forum or any type of Civic or civil function. In fact they should be incarcerated.

Witchcraft is exposing itself in the mainstream by trickery and misfeasance.

Father, we are so ignorant of the ways to deal with witchcraft but one thing you are teaching us. You are the one to take down the highest orders of spiritual wickedness in high places. Continue to teach us the way we should go in prayer, spiritual mapping and prayer strikes to attack the enemy’s feet as You remove his headship.

    Many satanists are Wiccans, who don’t profess to believe in the devil. But they DO believe in “the goddess”, or mother earth. So they most likely pray to her, even tho we believers know she doesn’t exist!! My next door neighbor is a young Wiccan, and I approach him with respect, planting seeds of the Gospel as the Holy Spirit leads. Just gave him Easter candy, with a note featuring John 3:16! Praying God waters seeds I’ve planted, according to the need!

    a man who was literally crushed to death with large rocks!
    And yes, there is a pretty heavy atmosphere over the city,
    since numerous occultists own shops and/or conduct spiritualist practices out in the open as well. Salem also has a rich maritime and historical past – inc. the largest hotel named after Nathaniel Hawthorne! So at least it has a real positive side – inc. much architectural beauty. But keep praying for the deliverance of Salem’s people!

I pray that laborer after laborer will cross their path via media, one-on-one, or any form of technology and share the true gospel of Jesus Christ with them. Holy Spirit please convict each of them. Let them see and embrace truth. By the authority of the name of Jesus, I command these demonic spirits in these people to expose themselves so everyone will see them for who they are and their mission is only to steal, kill, and destroy to include the satanic followers.

If the ‘court’ – which is now illegitimate – rules for these satanists to ‘pray’ – conjure up their demonic ‘prayers’ – then every council member has the right if not the duty to get up and walk out.

If the ‘court’ – which is now illegitimate – rules for these satanists to ‘pray’ – conjure up their demonic ‘prayers’ – then every council member has the right if not the duty to get up and walk out. Forcing on the council and taking time away from their agenda to get accomplished that evening completely removes their rights and those of the citizenry for the council to conduct their business as they see fit. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! WWG1WGA MAGA

If you are not worshipping the God of Abraham, the Creator of all of heaven & earth, then you are serving satan whether you want to admit it or not. Serving the enemy will buy you eternity in the lake of fire, along with him. It is not worth it. Seek the Lord while He may be found. You will find Him if you seek Him with your whole heart.

Do not ever allow your City or State fall into this issue. We have to keep the grace of God in America as we fall for all the wrong decisions in Government we will fall from the Grace of the Creator. It is well Known that Humans can not serve two Masters and giving up the one true God for the god of the underworld is not good for mankind. I don’t care if you don’t believe God does not exist, it is not up to anyone to Force the rest of the world into Sinful Submission when all the Satanic forces the have taken over a 1% of the population into choosing a god over Good. WQe are in a war with Principalities and only allowing Satan a foothold will doom this world into death forever. Satan is not the Creator, he is the created that has defiled his stature of an Angel that wanted to rule over God. Just like now we face a Government that wants to rule over all Men and will mill billions to get it done. These are the last days for Satan and his Demons and will be trying to take good Christians with them, they are the worst of creation that take God’s Laws below Mans law. Don’t fall for the trickery when under depression, Satan wants your soul and God is trying to save your soul. This Demonic world has fallen into a reversal of meanings, that Good is bad, and Bad is Good, we are so confused that Satan has convinced people that there are many pronouns and the genetics are being used against the DNA that God has given, Californication is the new name for California and all that are in California are Evil wether they want to admit it or not. Californication is full of sinful people and many are in our Government trying to put the rest of the world under the Power of Satan. DO NOT LET THEM WIN, your soul depends on wether you will stand with God and defeat Evil by fighting of Satans Delusions that are all around us.

Satan knows how to play the game.
This person says that he is just trying to incite rebellion. He does NOT worship Satan.
This is how the devil works. He does not come out directly and say what he is doing.
He just is very subtle and works in sneaky ways.
Do not let his tactics deceive you! He is out to destroy you and anyone he can!

Wanda Alger, pastor in Virginia, has prophetic dreams. Recently she dreamed of General Lee and the Civil War in Virginia. This war allowed 10, 000+ African slaves to cross over to the Union lines to safety.
Holy Spirit led Pastor Wanda and her husband to develop a teaching on hidden societies, particularly freemasonry which directed Lee during his lifetime and thus was a generational curse in that area of Virginia.
Another case recently came to light over the legality of a society with branches in several areas. The courts declared them a religion as they had “rituals”. The Grand Master down played this information and no more was heard about taxes and community regulations.
The Lord reminded me again how important it is to do your literal and Spiritual housecleaning every year at Passover. Cleaning out the “leven”. Freemasonry has many tentacles and its essential to be aware of children in their white shirts and black pants as well as the Satanists that want us to believe the lies. In this New Year of the spiritual calendar we are to ve prepared in season and out so we can deflect the unholy agendas of the enemy.

Be Blessed..

We come against all the powers that come against this Boston City Council and declare that “His intent was that now, through the CHURCH, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms, according to His eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. In Him and through FAITH in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.”We ask Father, that You would raise up believers with a confidence and power in the Holy Spirit to stand firm against the evil plans for this city. Your heart is that :none should perish”, so we ask that You would bring revelation THRUTH that would bring a saving knowledge of those who are coming against this City with an evil agenda. Father, You know and see the heart that leads this evil and we pray for a hedge of protection with the Blood of Jesus Christ, that no evil would prevail, but only Your plan and purposes go forth for the people of Boston. amen

I’ve had several confrontations with satanists since 1966 after I was born again that same year. One thing they are famous for is believing that lying is a virtue. Why would anyone, who claims they don’t believe in Satan, name their religious organization The Satanic Temple? That is an oxymoron. Why would they pray to someone, whom they don’t believe exists? That is another oxymoron.

When Barrack Obama took his oath of office in 2009, he did so standing upon the seat of Satan. A photo of this was published in Uncensored Magazine in New Zealand. Billy Graham was also in that photo with a look of total horror upon his face. That same issue also had 2 photos of Michelle Obama displaying satanic hand signals on the front cover of 2 US women’s magazines.

The Bible tells us to open the gates to the King of Glory. The opposite of this principle is also true. Obama opened the gates to the hordes of hell when he took his oath in 2009. What is now happening with The Satanic Temple is another step forward in their agenda.

If these people aren’t worshiping Satan, then who are they worshiping? Anyone not worshiping GOD – the one true GOD, our Lord and Savior of all – is worshiping a false god which I feel comes from Satan. I constantly pray against this evil and that people see the true GOD for all His goodness and glorious ways. Satan only wins if a person lets him. He is very devious, cunning, and deceptive. We must be strong, stand up for our Faith, and put our Armor of GOD on to protect us. I am not in favor of having this group preside over the prayer at the city council meeting.

I am sure that the Boston City Council has always opened every prayer to Almighty God in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ and has no intention of changing. God Himself started Democracy with these simple four words, “Let us reason together, ” saith the LORD.
The Satanic Temple people want everyone to believe that they do not follow Satan, but they are perfectly fine with his name in their group.
Satan’s people try to use our U.S. Constitution to prove their point instead of realizing that the People decide what kind of government they will be ruled by, or their Representatives, unless they decide to impeach someone.

Satanism.
I was but a teen (of 13) when I first encountered the wizardly world of witchcraft while dating a girl six months younger. She, and every female in her family (including aunts and cousins), was a practitioner of ‘good’ witchcraft. Two years later I met Anton Zandar Lavy at his unofficial “church” of Satan in California. He officially founded his “church” two years later (1969). Country was in chaos. Blacks marching for their civil rights. Hippies protesting the Vietnam War and America’s most infamous motorcycle club roaring across the country, but I didn’t actually begin practicing the arts of the occult until I was 17.
Things was hush-hush back then. So much so one “coven” hardly knew where other practitioners were, but nonetheless confronting the ‘norm’ (especially Christians) was the agenda. It was, of course, much easier to silence such groups back then.
I was aggressive and bold. Even got a job building a church in Virginia Beach in 1976. My first real face-to-face with a God whom I had sworn war upon. I was shocked that that encounter ended with my being saved.
My spiritual battles have been many over the years since . . . for the evil one doesn’t take kindly to his subjects defecting to the other side and for most of it the “Christians” I encountered usually shunned me after hearing my testimony. Perhaps it was because I still hung out with bikers (for I are one) but I really can’t say that for certain.
Pushing 70. Still a biker, although tis mostly just my wife and I when we ride, and still very much a believer in the God of mercy. Thankful He chose me to save and we fly our ministry patch on our riding vests proudly.
Prayers do help for the outcast angel Lucifer hates it, but to defeat this rapidly encroachment of these satanic believers will take EVERY Christian to rise up and join the fight. Otherwise . . . they will win.
They proclaim today’s satanist don’t worship the devil.
They are lying.
Because I know for a fact the evil one does NOT tolerate any that refuse to worship him and obey him.
I was bold and aggressive enough back in the 70’s to garner the attention of the sacrificed Lamb of God . . . so that he intervened to stop me.
I do not regret that intervention despite the many spiritual battles over the years for He has carried me through them all.
If you are conservative, Christian or not, they are coming for you.
There is a war going on.
Satanism, LGBTQ+++, humanists and others likened unto them are as aggressive as Putin is in Ukraine.
They won’t stop until they are defeated and make no mistake . . . all of those groups care not if the completely destroy this country of not so long as they win the war.
May our God bless us all as we fight.

False religion does not hesitate to use force. Satan tried this in the wilderness with Jesus, insisting that Jesus bow down and worship him. He didn’t, of course. Neither did He argue or debate. He simply declared, “It is written” (Matthew 4:4). He used the Word of God. That is why it is important for us to memorize passages in the Bible. Jesus used Scripture as a weapon against evil. It is God’s Word that has authority and the Holy Spirit power. Let the Scriptures become the heartbeat of your life. Thank you Daddy God, and Jesus. Amen.

Put on the Armour of God and then pray without ceasing , so that Satan is defeated and those being deceived can see clearly who it is that they need to be praying to.

The statement that these Satan worshipers “do not worship Satan but the spirit of rebellion” is almost completely laughable were it not a prime example of Satan’d deceptive nature.

Lord, Jesus. Save our children. We see Your enemy working relentlessly to steal the hearts of our children. We reject this in the name of Jesus. We stand on the authority of Jesus Christ as we cover our children with the power of protection You provide. Awaken the hearts and minds of parents, teachers, and politicians as they appear uninformed in this matter. Lord, for those who do see the battle for the souls of our children, strengthen their efforts to pray relentlessly in, and through Christ Jesus.

    Dr. Stephen Phinney
    April 23, 2022

    You are correct, Tony. However, any who does not worship Jesus Christ worships Satan – directly or inadvertently. As President Reagan noted back in his day, “Communism is the platform our enemy will use to steal America’s religious freedoms.” No truer words for this particular issue. Any leader who does NOT protect America’s freedoms is advancing another leader’s attempts to take them away. Once the God of the Hebrews has been removed from a nation, the nation will delude into the “god” of destruction.

During the Regan administration, I worked as a consultant to advise their administration regarding the rise of Satanism in local schools. While we delayed their objectives, they remained relentless in their efforts. Today, their influence is evident. Back in the day, we provided documentation on their strategy of converting school teachers into Satanist. Due to our work, my family was threatened to the point of needing federal agents to protect us for several years. I say all this to remind Christians this group is serious. They are relentless and have no plans to give up on their strategic efforts. In fact, this group is far more engaged in their efforts than most Christians are in their acts of spiritual warfare. I am blessed to see IFA and its members in stepping up to pray boldly in Christ. -Dr. Phinney

If they don’t believe in “satan”,then WHO are they “invoking/inviting” into the meeting? The word satan is a Hebrew word meaning ADVESARY. It is a VERB/action,not a Noun/name. So is the “satanic temple” an ADVESARIAL temple?

This is the direct and inevitable result of giving other ‘religions’ equal weight as Christianity.

Father we need your wisdom to answer this challenge from people who are called a Satanic Temple and claim to worship the concept of rebellion and want to pray for for the Boston City Council members when they open their sessions. If they pray, to whom are they praying, considering they call rebellion a concept, not a god? Father, give the Council your insight into this rebellious and bullying act of people who simply want to disrupt the smooth operation of government in Boston. Let us not be afraid of hearing the name of Satan, for according to your word, he must ask You before he can act against your saints, as with Job. Help the Council to be clear in their thinking and in their response when they refuse rebellion in their midst. Surely, we seek clarity and wisdom in government, not rebellion from the top down. Thank you Lord for hearing our requests and for answering our honest inquiry. In Yeshua’s name we pray, amen.
