Father, the darkness increases, but we will not be afraid. As You have said, greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. If you said it, we believe it. Equip us to fight for our young people. 
Reading Time: 7 minutes

Last month Boston was the site of a large “satanic” gathering. And after-school Satan clubs are now popping up at some government schools as a form of challenge to traditional Christian clubs. A few months ago, the New York Post reported that some 30 schoolgirls in Colombia were hospitalized for fainting, anxiety, and symptoms of hysteria after playing with ouija boards. Most recently, a church leader shared a warning on Facebook about a ouija board game called “The Holy Spirit Board,” whose players are alleged to be able to communicate directly with Jesus. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was angry, and I felt burdened with a greater resolve to intercede for our young people.

We are at war right now. There is a war in the spiritual realm being waged against families, and especially against young people. We can see the fruit of that war in the natural. We have much work to do, intercessors. Will you join me?

Sun Tzu’s The Art of War offers this principle: “If you know your enemy and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles.” That is a great rule for intercessors: Know your enemy!

Satan goes by many names, and we can learn much about his character from what the Bible calls him. In Matthew 4, he is the tempter. In John 8:44 he is the father of lies and a murderer from the outset. In Revelation 12:10 he is the accuser of the brethren. In Mark 3:22 he is called Beelzebub, the prince of demons. In Matthew 13:19 he is the evil one who comes to steal the seed that has been planted. In 1 Peter 5:8, the apostle calls him our adversary. He is the “god of this world” (see 2 Corinthians 4:4) and “the prince of the power of the air” (see Ephesians 2:2).

But two descriptions of Satan are particularly important just now:

And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14).

And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world — he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him (Revelation 12:9).

These two verses reveal his strategy and purpose: He masquerades as an angel of light to deceive. He is a great pretender, a counterfeit. He aims to get people to believe his lies so he can gain a stronghold in their souls, from which he can oppress them because he’s been given authority. His long-term goal is possession. He is not a creator or originator, and he hates those whom God loves.

The ‘Spirituality’/Darkness Connection

Satan perverts whatever is of the Lord, so perhaps the greatest counterfeit to Christianity is what many call “spirituality.” The truth is that such “spirituality” is demonic; it’s deceptive. Consider the following New Age buzzwords: “Manifesting” is a direct counterfeit to prayer; “astral projection” (out-of-body experience) is a demonic and dangerous counterfeit to what the Bible calls translation (transference from this world to the next); and burning sage to cleanse the air is not of God either. The Bible says the word of God, when studied and applied, cleanses us like water. Fortune-telling, tarot cards, horoscopes — all of these are divination, a demonic counterfeit to the gift of prophecy. Doing these things to attain “spirituality” only opens up your soul and your home to familiar spirits, and burning sage will not remove them — only repenting, renouncing, a physical house cleaning by removing those items, and inviting the Holy Spirit to fill the vacancy will do that.

All of the preceding are forms of Satan’s coming “as an angel of light.” Take that previously mentioned Holy Spirit Board: An unsuspecting child, possibly a Christian, may see it as a cute game. I mean, who doesn’t want to talk to Jesus, right? But it’s all a blatant lie of the devil: the ad, looks innocent enough — until you see the words talking board for seance. That is necromancy, and it is strictly forbidden for believers in the God of the Bible, along with divination and similar occult practices (see Deuteronomy 18:9–12). When I looked up information about this board to find out more, I found that ouija board is repackaged as spirit board or angel board — but Satan remains a phony “angel of light.” He is a liar!

Did you know that in New Age terms, “enlightenment” is the spiritual goal? This is a heightened sense of self-awareness and amounts to a sensitivity to the spiritual realm. That is iffy — people become more open to mystical experiences and false dreams and visions. This is falsely called a “spiritual awakening.” Do you see how the devil counterfeits everything God does? We desperately need a true awakening. Lord, our children and youth desperately need an awakening! Here’s how we can pray into what is going on.

Prayer Strategy for Our Children and Youth

There is a void in the human heart that was made for God, and many are seeking to fill that void, but they are looking in the wrong places. Satan is deceiving them.

  1. Pray that young people would come to know that they are loved by God, that He sees them, and that He has a purpose for their lives. Their true identity is as sons or daughters of the Most High, and He invites them into an intimate relationship with Himself through the Savior, His Son Jesus Christ (see Jeremiah 29:11).
  1. Pray for an opening of all eyes to see Satan for the liar he is (see Acts 26:18).
  2. Pray for the Gospel to be preached widely. The true Gospel has always been demonstrated by signs, wonders, and miracles. So, pray that the gifts of the Spirit would be made manifest in the churches again — but only through the true preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! That true power of God will silence all demonic counterfeits (see Mark 16:17–20).

 We Need a True Awakening

Pray for an outpouring of God’s Spirit for such a time as this. God has already been moving among our young people, so you can be sure the devil is at work attempting to cut off that movement to destroy them. But these young people are an end-time generation of Joshuas, and they are hungry for something that only God can give them (see Isaiah 44:3).

I have been grieved to hear about how many Christians burn sage and loosely practice “manifesting.” Remember that Satan’s key strategy is always to deceive. Sadly, many Christians have fallen victim to his wiles. He is the deceiver of the whole world. He is working overtime and on weekends and holidays to lead Christian believers astray. He is focused especially on the young — those whose minds are more open and impressionable. Look at those schoolgirls in Colombia who had been playing with ouija boards: Satan had no problem throwing them into fits of anxiety and psychosis and who knows what. His endgame is unchanged since the days of Eden. But Jesus exposed his plans: to steal, kill, and destroy.

Prayer Strategy for Believers

  1. Confess and repent. If you are a Christian but have had any occult involvement, first things first: Begin with confession and repentance. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). After confession comes repentance: turning away from what is wrong and resolving to stay free. Get rid of the likes of cards, crystals, sage, certain candles, idols, books — anything the Holy Spirit leads you to turn from (see Acts 19:19).
  1. Renounce anything that is not of God. This means that you call back any “rights” you have given to the devil through your participation in occultic activities. You are now rejecting what you once condoned (see 2 Timothy 2:19).
  2. Fill the vacancy. Remember that Satan is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. If you have kicked him out of your life, he may attempt to return, seeking reentry. So, once you have confessed, repented, renounced, and removed, you must then fill the spaces that have been vacated (see Matthew 12:43–45). Ask the Holy Spirit to expose any lies you have believed and to fill your mind and heart with the truth of God’s word instead. Consume that word until it becomes a living force inside of you. When Jesus battled Satan’s temptations in the wilderness, he countered the lies by repeatedly citing Scripture, which he prefaced each time with the words, “It is written … ”

If you are determined to see this generation rise up, let’s pray:

Father, we are burdened by the war being waged against our children and youth. Thank You for giving us this burden as a prayer assignment, because You care about what is happening to them. This generation does have a gift: They truly care about the things happening in the world, though Satan has often perverted that gift and blinded many minds. Nevertheless, they are seeking truth. They long for an awakening, Father, so do awaken their souls. We pray that many who are engaged in occult practices will see the real Jesus calling them to turn from evil and come to Him. We pray that no ouija boards will find their way into the schools, the toy stores, or the hands of our children. We call forth this generation as the Joshuas and Esthers You’ve created them to be. We refuse to stay silent and let Satan assault them any longer.

And Father, we pray for Your Church. Forgive us for our part in this. Forgive us for treating the occult casually and for failing to warn our children. Forgive the Church for shutting down the gifts of Your Spirit in the churches, especially the gift of discerning of spirits. Forgive us for minimizing the gift of deliverance. Lord, what we need here and now is deliverance, so let it begin in Your house. Things do look dark, but we are convinced that You are still at work through our intercession. Come and have Your way, Lord. We need You. You are victorious, and in You so are we. We’re praying from a place of victory through the finished work of the cross. In Jesus’ name we pray all this. Amen.

I just left a part time job in a public high school as a Library Asst. Thus was an office asst. job where I assisted the 2 Librarians there. I had no say in what books were ordered and placed on display in this school library. One of the main reasons I felt I needed to get out of there was because the books being ordered, and presented to students had an agenda behind them…to expose students to unbiblical story lines and plots that celebrated anti-Christian themes that would not inspire students to live Godly lives but to become familiar with lifestyles and ways of expressing themselves that would not honor God. The goal being to expose vulnerable young people to accept a life not given to them by their Creator. Pornographic writings, cursing throughout the writings in the books, and anti -God and anti- Biblical ways of living were rampant throughout much of the literature presented to them. It continued to grieve me greatly to check these books out to students as this was part of my job. I knew I could no longer be part of doing this. I did not want to affirm what was being given to these students to read.

We do need to pray for students to not be drawn to the lifestyles presented to them.

Father, I pray that your children will be spiritually alert at all times to fight against the strategies of satan that are trying to prevail especially over our young children. Holy Spirit we are relying on you to direct our steps, our speech, our behavior, etc. As we stay connected to you Father and obey you, we can’t lose because there is none greater and more powerful than you. We love you Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. We just give you all the honor, praise, and glory. In Jesus’ powerful and majestic name, Amen.

Great article. Thank you. I know most of what is written here and have repented for my past sins as well as current sins and have asked for the Lords protection and forgiveness. I thought I was on a spiritual path till I found Jesus. God Bless you for your work.

Satan Is Acknowledged By Jews As One Of G-D’s Higher Angels And Was Created By G-D To Test The Loyalties Of Individuals In Following The Will Of G-D.

Satan Is Even Permitted By G-D To Employ Deception In Order To Rigorously Test Us. Also, However, According To The Ancient Jewish Oral Tradition, Satan Is Never Allowed To Test An Individual With A Test Which Is Too Difficult For That Individual To Pass!!!!! Probably The Best Way To Pass These Tests Of Satan Is For Individuals To Prove To Satan That They Are Totally Loyal To The Will Of Hashem!!!!!

Yes, Satan Is The Great Deceiver, And Of Course He Tries To Trick His Victims Into Accepting The Most Defeatest Types Of Thinking; That They Must Fail, Because These Tests Are Too Difficult For Them To Pass. However, The Courage To Pass These Tests Is Available To All Individuals If Only They Just Try To Understand The Purpose Of These Tests And Then Use Their ‘Free Choice’ To Enlist Their Inner Strengths And Courage To Pass Them.

In Fact, When An Individual Does Successfully Pass These Tests, Satan Is Even Authorized By G-d To Reward These Individuals, Because These Individuals Have Shown Such Great Loyalty To Obeying G-D’s Will.

This Brings Us To The Story Of One Of The Most Famous Of All Of Satan’s Tests Of Loyalty To G-D’s Will. This Refers Specifically To The Story Of The ‘Binding Of Isaac’.

The Events Of This Story Are Not Only Recited Daily In Almost All Jewish Prayer Forums, But Are Also Featured As One Of The Main Highlights Of The Prayers On Both Rosh HaShana And Yom Kippur.

According To The Ancient Jewish Oral Tradition, When Issac Reached The Age Of Three Years Old And Was Weaned By Sarah, Abraham Was So Elated By This Milestone That He Wanted To Celebrate This Event By Inviting Many (32 Princes And Kings To Be Precise) Of The Most Powerful Distinguished Local Dignitaries In His Area To A Celebration Abraham Would Make And Through Which He Would Recognize And Give Thsnks For This Very Important Stage In Isaac’s Life.

In Heaven, The Angel’s Were Also Praising Abraham For His Great Loyalty To G-d, His Many Successes And His Very Good Fortune. In Fact, Abraham Was Rewarded By G-D So Greatly For His Previous Loyalty And Good Deeds, That Hashem Made Abraham The Richest Man In His Area.

If One Thinks Of The Wise Aphorism: Never Tempt Satan, This Type Of Praise Was All Satan Needed To Hear To Try To Destroy Abraham. According To The Ancient Jewish Oral Tradition, Upon Hearing All These Lavish Praises Of Abraham, Satan Immediately Went To G-D And Asked G-D What Was So Special About Abraham That He Deserved Such Great Praises And Blessings?

G-D Responded That Abraham Was One Of His Very Most Loyal Servants And That If There Was Anything That G-D Would Ask Abraham To Do, Abraham Would Faithfully Obey.

According To The Ancient Jewish Oral Tradition, Satan Then Asked G-D For Permission To Test G-D’s Trust In Abraham’s Righteousness, And G-D Gave Him Permission.

Satan Decided To First Test Abraham’s Righteousness By Dressing Up As A Very Poor Beggar And Visit This Party To Ask For Some Food While The Celebration Was Still In Progress.

Satan Was Greeted At The Opening Of The Tent By Several Of Abraham’s Servants. Abraham And Sarah Were Still Busy With The Other Guests And The Preparations, And So The Servants Decided To Take The Responsibility On Themselves And Not Bother Abraham And Sarah, And So Refused To Offer This Beggar Any Food Or Drink.

Since Servants Are Considered Agents Of Their Masters, Even If The Reasoning Of The Servants Was Incorrect In Not Offering The Beggar Any Food Or Drink, The Consequences Of Their Decision Fell To The Responsibility Of Abraham And Sarah.

After Having Been Refused Any Food Or Drink, Satan Immediately Returned To Heaven And Told G-d What Had Happened And That While Abraham Had Made A Feast For The Dignitaries, He Didn’t Even Offer A Single Special Thankgiving Sacrifice To Hashem?

G-D Knew That This Really Wasn’t Typical Of Abraham’s True Charitable Nature And So He Reiterated To Satan That G-D Still Considered Abraham To Be Among G-D’s Most Loyal And Faithful Servants.

Anything That G-D Would Ask Abraham To Do, G-D Believed That Abraham Would Always Faithfully Comply, Even To The Point That If Abraham Was Asked To Sacrifice His Son, If Asked To By G-D, He Would Do It!!!!!

Satan Then Asked G-D If G-D Would Allow Abraham To Be Tested By Satan To See If This Loyalty To G-D’s Will Were True, And G-D Agreed.

But What About Isaac????? The Ancient Jewish Oral Tradition Goes On To Explain That Later When Issac Was A Little Older He Was Playing In A Field With His Step Brother, Ishmael.

Ishmael Bragged To Isaac That Ishmael Was Braver Than Isaac Because Ishmael Allowed Himself To Be Circumcisized When He Was Thirteen Years Old, While Isaac Had No Say In The Matter Because He Was Just Eight Days Old When Isaac Was Circumsized.

Isaac Responded That If He, Isaac, Was Asked To Even Give His Entire Life Up For G-D, He Would Gladly Comply.

Satan Returned To G-D, Relayed These Comments, And Asked G-D To Allow Satan To Further Test Both Abraham And Isaac On These Matters. G-D Granted Satan’s Request And The ‘Akeidah’ Or ‘Binding Of Isaac Took Place When Isaac Reached 37 Years Old.

But How Do We know That Satan Was Still Directly Involved With This Test At The Binding Of Isaac?

Given All The Prior Events Building Up To The Binding Of Isaac, Who Else BUT Satan Could Have Logically Said The Following To Abraham:

“Just then an angel of G-D called to him out of Heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Yes, I’m listening.” “Don’t lay a hand on that boy! Don’t touch him! Now I know how fearlessly you fear God; you didn’t hesitate to place your son, your dear son, on the altar for me.” (Gen.22:11-12)

Maybe Even Satan’s Current Attempt To Deceive Prochoice Individuals Also Needs To Be Exposed Much More Rigorously, As In: It’s Just A Clump Of Cells, It’s Not Really Alive, It’s Not Really A Baby, My Body My Choice, It’s A Woman’s Right To Choose, Abortion Is Healthcare, Etc., Etc…

There Is Just One More Aspect Relative To All This That Is Also Extremely Important To Point Out. There Is A Relatively Obscure Jewish Custom Which Many People May Not Be Aware.

It Is When Someone Makes A Large Party And Invites Many People, Such As To A Wedding, Bar Or Bat Mitzvah, Etc., That A Poor Person: Jewish, Non-Jewish, Or Even A Homeless Stranger, Should Be Invited To Partake At The Meal Along With All The Other Guests, Even If The Invitation Is At The Very Last Minute.

Now You Know The Rest Of The Story And From Where This Custom Originated!!!!!

May The Messiah Please Come Speedily In All Our Days!!!!!

I’m in full agreement with your message this morning and agree in my spirit with your prayer. Reading in Proverbs just before reading this message, Prov. 9:1-12, Wisdom calls from the tops of the heights ….”Come eat of my food, turn in here and live.” But Prov. 9:13-18, Folly also calls to the naive & simple, “Come eat of my food, turn in here for stolen water is sweet….but the simple doesn’t know that the dead are there!”
As you masterfully pointed out, Folly (Satan really) is seeking the simple or naive. Praise God that He (Wisdom) is also seeking the simple & naive and shouting from the heights! Our God is greater than any counterfeit “Folly” that Satan can create. Our Prayers are warring against him. Thank you for your words. Richard

A spiritual Battle “ One Nation Under God” Father God, we thank you for your mercy and Grace.. We thank you for the blood that Jesus shed on the Cross for all our sins that was applied at Calvary. Many in America has rejected you! Many have broken Covenant with you and aligned them selves with the evilness of darkness which holds the name of Baal. There is bloodshed, violence, broken family homes, our churches sabotaged, our schools corrupted and much more. God our Savior is being hurt and sadden because we have placed worldly ideas in our mouths and hearts allowing an opening for Satan. God is grieved as He encounters destruction among us. Deuteronomy 18-10 says”Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God.” Our Father clearly tells us what is the correct thing to do, do we listen or obey? Satan has been trying for years to destroy this land- It is time we get up and fight with Authority and Gods power He gave us. In Daniel 10:13-20 the scriptures reveal that principalities of the darkness are many and Baal rules over America. The ouija board is repackaged as spirit board or angel board — “When I looked up information about this board to find out more, I found that ouija board is repackaged as spirit board or angel board — but Satan remains a phony “angel of light.” He is a liar!” When a person or people give place to the devil through perversion or shedding of blood like abortions then Satan has a right to rule or control with given opportunity this has happened in many state’s in America. Who are we standing with God or Satan? All of these lies and distractions is an attempt to take our focus away from God. “ Remember that Satan’s key strategy is always to deceive. Sadly, many Christians have fallen victim to his wiles. Holy Spirit open eyes to see and hearts to receive the words and proof that what God is presenting is an open door for salvation and repentance of sin. God is moving giving us prophetic words that are being fulfilled and deliverance’s from Baals strongholds.
Prayer is the answer as God exposes the plots and lies, the design to remove God, and our states and millions of illegals that are crossing our border to steal, kill and destroy American people. Father God we ask you to intervene by closing the borders, the pastors of some churches have a call to prayer for all of America and its people. You are a gracious God and know our prayers have saturated the heavens and earth so we ask in Yahweh name who is our healer. Restore our borders and Stop any more Illegals from coming over. God we also ask that the Administration of Biden, Obama be exposed so their evil control will be stopped forever and homes and families can be safe. In Jesus name we ask for this! Thank you God for deliverances.

we are losing the battle of the children because no christians are really not standing up to the real poison in the world and that is the catholic demonic church that claims to be christians. we need to fight that evil and stand up to them instead of partner with them. they are not of god in any way shape or form. this is the evil that needs to be addressed they are the ones stealing children through the governments they use the governments to steal the children. some hundreds of thousands of children go missing every year. this is the Catholic Church behind it all, they are pedofiles, they are murderers and they need to be called out as NOT BEING CHRISTIAN AT ALL. they have murdered in the name of Jesus for centuries. where are the christians coming up against them for their heresy.

    May 28, 2023

    End Times Productions on Youtube has a good video on the Catholic Church that will give greater understanding to what you are saying. There are many in the Church that are being fooled.

Genesis 3:15
And I will put enmity, Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.”
I thank you God our Father for your word which is true. And we are the seed descended from Eve. By your word we have full right and duty to execute the words of your judgment upon the deceiver. We by our prayer my impede his every move. Hobble the speed and performance of his every moment by our prayers call into being that which we do not see in the natural. We may bruise the heel of ‘satan’s feet, hobble every move, make painful his every plan. We thank you and bless you Father for so many plans, projects, and intents of the evil one are so openly displayed before us to catalyze our pray, raise our spirits to the battle and wrest the stolen sheep from the thief, break the chains of their bondage, return then to life and that eternal. Thank you Father for the power of your spirit and the wisdom of his discernment. That we may pray in the spirit at any time of the day and send damage, hinderance, bruising to the enemy. Exact a painful price upon the one who deceived Eve every time we should chance upon the thought of it. Bruise His Feet! Believers, begin. Your enemy parades before you openly. It is our time to call those things we have been promised to be. Amen

    Dear Lord, You have heard HJ’s prayer. I agree with each appeal. I pray HJ and the children he prays for, feel You near them…let them KNOW You are present. Please protect their hearts, keeping them tender toward You ALONE. Surround them with Your warring angels to keep them safe from the evil one and as they prosper, guide them, fill them and let HJ and these children be leaders, in conviction in truth. May they be leaders in their homes and schools. May they be safe in YOUR Hands. May Your response to our prayers be abundantly more than we ask or can imagine. I am praying in the Beautiful Name of Jesus, our Savior. Amen

May 27, 2023

This is why it’s so important to read God’s word daily and know His word. That way you can tell what’s a lie and what’s true. We need to fill ourselves with His word and meditate on it day and night. Give no room for the enemy to try to deceive.

Father God, You are Jehovah-tsidkenu, “The Lord Our Righteousness. I humble myself and pray, “May Your truth penetrate the darkness in our Nation and World.” You are the Holy One. Thank you, for Your Word that keeps Your children close to Jesus and to the Father’s Heart. Holy Spirit, have a free hand in delivering Believers who have tainted their walk due to divination. Lord, show us Your Glory! I decree: “The Glory of the later house is greater than the former,” II Chronicles 5:13. I declare: “The awe of God and the fear of God will be restored in our Nation. We, as Your Ekklesia, bind the demonic and loose the Name above ALL names, Jesus Christ.” Amen and amen.

Heavenly Father of light in a dark world, we know how stealthily Satan can be, and abortion touted as women’s healthcare is a perfect example of how he can manipulate us into thinking certain things through particular words, phrases, etc. Satan is a deceiver who wants us to believe that things are for our own good, when they are not. Please Lord… help us to seek Your face in all things by reading your Word, so we are not deceived and will be able to better discern what is of you and not from the Devil. Your Word is truth, but Satan would have us believe otherwise. Help us to be wise in our choices and not fall prey to any deception.

It’s in Your Holy Name that we pray these things for ourselves as well as for our brothers and sisters in Christ.

May the Lord will shine Light and Truth into the minds of youth who have been deceived and indoctrinated by the divisive CRT Critical Race Theory, and the Comprehensive Sex education, ruining the innocence of our children. May the Lord deliver our youth from the “woke” theology and gender dysphoria. May youth be taught how precious they are in the eyes of God, their Father.

Thank you for this informative and valuable post and warning. I have been a Christian over 50 years and yet I had bought some sage thinking it was a harmless way of purifying the air. So thank you for adding to my discernment and keeping me from making a bad and evil mistake.

These battles are best fought by taking the authority Jesus Himself gave us, to heal the sick, help the blind to see, (Physically AND Spiritually), cure lepers, and CAST OUT DEMONS.

Father God, we come to You, in the Power of the name Yeshua, by His Blood that made it all possible, using the authority He gave to us, we bind the demonic forces behind the trickery of the liar himself. We loose the younger generations from any grip the evil ones may have taken, without their realizing it. We ask You, Papa, to give parents the wisdom needed to raise spiritually protected children and youth in this evil time. We ask You to post Holy Angels around each child and youth, those raised in Christian homes and those not, and provide them with the information they need to be guarded and protected with Your Full Armor, beginning with full salvation and a filling of The Holy Spirit.
Forgive us… the Church, for failing to teach the importance of Holy Spirit being active in our lives once having received Yeshua as our Savior. He is the Best and Only protection we have and is why Yeshua left Holy Spirit here.
Guide the pastors behind the pulpits, embolden them to PREACH THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH… even when it is politically incorrect.
Help them to be informed of the traps satan has created for our children and youth and enable them to equip their flocks in how to war against it.
In The name of our Savior and our Lord, Yeshua ben Yehovah!

The fallen ones’ agenda has been the same for millennia… cause mankind to turn away from our Holy YHVH GOD~ and indulge in fruitless damning paganism. https://zionsgate.wordpress.com/2015/10/31/the-new-age-movement-the-fallen-serpents-old-lie/

ABBA Father, we intercede for all who are victims of demonic deception and have succumbed to the addictive lies of darkness. We ask that You would reveal Yourself to each and every one with Holy Spirit conviction of sin, righteousness, and judgment… with the Holy Fear of the LORD overwhelming their lives. May Your Grace, Mercy, and unfathomable Love be revealed to them in Power, in the Name of our LORD Jesus Christ, AMEN!

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for my granddaughter and for all the children in this country who are being badly afflicted by the wicked one. I pray for them all including my own granddaughter that You LORD GOD would please intervene and open their eyes to the Truth of Your Love. I pray Father that you would send your Holy Angels to each of them today and protect them from suicide. Your promise Lord Jesus is that if two of you agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask it shall be done for them of My Father in Heaven. My granddaughter needs to be saved and delivered LORD, as do so many other beautiful young people, please do that for her and for them all today that they may live to serve You and You alone. In Jesus Name, Amen.

O Heavenly Word, Only Begotten of the Father’s Might: help us stand against these Satanic games wherever we find them. Help us send away the “oui-ja” boards from the presence of innocent children! We declare that the name “ouija” is hereby changed to “non-nein”! In the Name of Jesus, amen

Father, the darkness increases, but we will not be afraid. As You have said, greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. If you said it, we believe it. Equip us to fight for our young people.

Satan, in Jesus’ holy name, you are rendered powerless. You are a liar, and only have as much power as God allows you to have. We give you absolutely NO power to kill, steal, or destroy today, in the mighty name of Jesus. May His Gospel be proclaimed, His precious blood be magnified, and Satan be put in his proper place- back in Hell where he belongs.

I disagree with the statement that “ ‘spirituality’ is demonic”…we’re all created in God’s image (spirit, soul, and body) and we all have a leaning towards things in the supernatural realm, whether it’s directed in the Kingdom of Heaven or the counterfeit kingdom of darkness…but spirituality is not necessarily “demonic”. As believers in Jesus we really need to be cautious about labeling so many things as “demonic”. God was here first and the enemy just counters and twists what belongs to the Lord (I.e. the rainbow)
Also, we actually CAN talk directly to Jesus, but we don’t need a board game to do that.
Just a couple thoughts.
We really need to meet people where they are with the gospel of Jesus. So many people are feeling powerless and just looking for love and acceptance in the wrong places.

    I agree with you Heidi, thank you for adding this clarification in such an insightful and loving way.

“Lord, what we need here and now is deliverance, so let it begin in Your house.” Gloria Robles

“Has this house, which bears My Name, become a den of robbers in your sight? Yes, I too have seen it, declares the LORD.” Jeremiah 7:11

Luke 19:37-47 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+19%3A37-47&version=CJB;NIV

When Jesus rode into Jerusalem the crowds loudly and joyfully exclaimed….
“Blessed is the King who is coming in the name of Adonai!”
“Shalom in heaven!”
“Glory in the highest places!”
…Jesus responded to the Pharisees request for rebuke, “I tell you that if they keep quiet, the stones will shout!”
…Jesus wept, “If you only knew today what is needed for shalom! But for now it is hidden from your sight….all because you did not recognize your opportunity when God offered it!”
…Then Jesus entered the Temple grounds and began driving out those doing business there, “The Tanakh says, ‘My House is to be a house of prayer,’ but you have made it into a den of robbers!”

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.

Dear Lord and God Almighty, we have always been obstinate and unruly but You died for us. I pray deliverance will begin in all the families who are deceived and corrupted. We know the enemy is like a roaring lion but he too was created and will always be under Your Authority. I pray this morning for peace in the lives of those under his influence, Your peace. I pray they will learn to be confident in You. Please Lord, deliver and save and end this attraction with finality. I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ, The Messiah, my Savior. Amen

Father, thank you for
Opening our eyes to the satanic activities going on around us!! Give us wisdom and revelation to watch for signs that our children are practicing or investigating these areas. Empower us to pray and give us courage to comfort our children in love and speak truth into them exposing the darkness. Help us love unconditionally for live never fails! Help us live in such power and joy that our faith is desirable to our children. We rebuke the devourer of our souls and call forth the Spirit of Love and Truth to overwhelm our children! Greater are You than any power that can pull them away! Let our children have a genuine encounter with the Living God who loves them and died for them! Raise up a generation who cling to you and unite in love to bring their friends into a life giving relationship with Jesus! Revive us and our children I pray in the powerful name of Jesus! Amen!

Father, I lift up every child, teen, counselor and server at any VBS, church camp and youth event of any kind to You.
Please pour out Your Spirit of Wisdom, Revelation and especially Your Love and the true definition of Love. Expose every counterfeit with Your Spirit of Truth and impart a dedication and determination for our children and grandchildren to walk faithfully with You and advance Your Kingdom. Endue them with Your power from on high and fill them with all the fruit of Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for our precious, blessed children and grandchildren!

Thank you for revealing the hidden things to us . Most parents have no idea these boards even exist. I will have our team of intercessors in prayer immediately over this lie! Satan is coming hard after our children, we must stand firm against him and refuse the industries that promote such harmful items. God is light and in Him we can bruise Satan under our feet.

I know many in the church who are into the Enneagram. I am opposed to it, myself. I would really appreciate your thoughts/stand.
Thank you.

    May 28, 2023

    Spencer Smith has videos on YouTube about what to watch out for in the churches and he mentions the
    Enneagram. His videos are titled “Third Adam” I believe he talks about them in numbers 2 and 3 of the series.

My novel, Receiving Grace, is based on true events of my youth. It starts with the Ouija & proceeds through the power of occult events. What seemed harmless became dangerous. The story is about all that is mentioned in this post. The removal of the tarot, crystal, books, sage, & candles led to reading the scriptures & understanding the gift of prophecy, not divination. I had to give up the power of knowing & infuse myself in the power of love. I embraced the Trinity. I wanted to reach teens today in the form of a mystery novel. Meanwhile it is adults who have embraced it. What scares me the most is how there are many who are empty of God in their hearts & don’t believe in the devil.

    Thank you for sharing about your life in your book. I pray that many who read this post will buy your book for their offspring and take heed to what you have written. Lord may it be a blessing to many and bring freedom to others, in Your precious name.

    I have a similar background, my mother did a seance with me at age 11, my Aunts are in the New Age movement.
    Another way satan has wormed his way into power is by convincing us (many of my friends) that even mentioning his name and talking about him gives him glory and power. We need to know our enemy and we need to be on the defensive. I have noticed that when this lie is followed my friends are always reacting in defense to his attacks. Lord, please give us, Your people, wisdom and discernment when it comes to fighting against our enemy the devil.

Hi! I would like to see pastors coming together by getting involved in raising monies to build Christian Private Schools across the world so that our young children can be taught the biblical way of living and not the way if the world. And this school should be privately funded by willing Christians around the world who does not mind to invest monies that will save our children from learning things that are demonic and goes against God’s Words. I will be willing to support in this cause.

    May 27, 2023

    And this sounds like a great idea! The problem I see is that there are over 40k different denominations of Christians. I don’t believe this is the way God intended. When we search scripture deeply, we can see how we have been deceived and are fighting in our own body over small things vs coming together in the body of Christ to be powerful for the kingdom plans and purposes. Just one example…the Sabbath. The first day of the week is Sunday. But the sabbath is from Friday night at sundown to the sundown of Saturday. Hashem has instructed us to keep the Sabbath holy. There are other examples of holy holidays that He has commanded his people to keep, for generations. A lot of modern Christian’s don’t revere the whole Bible and consider that the Old Testament “nailed the law to the cross”. It doesn’t say this anywhere in the Bible. I, personally, have had a revelation that we are ingrafted as believers and that our roots are Hebrew. That means it doesn’t matter what our “ancestry DNA” says about where we came from. Because by the Spirit and our expression of belief in Jesus we have been grafted in to the body. When we think WWJD…we should be thinking WWYD…because Yeshua was a Hebrew…not a modern day Christian who worships on pagan holidays like easter and xmas. I pray that people’s eyes would be open to the mass deception we have engaged in for centuries and we could return to our Hebrew roots and truly follow Yeshua. That is why I gave up xmas (no body even knows the exact time our savior was born…some think it was at the time of Sukkot) and easter(pagan goddess worship and child sacrifice painting eggs with their blood 😟). So now I do what Yeshua would do…culturally and historically he would have celebrated Hanukkah. Hanukkah is a great story and worth celebrating as it was when God restored the temple using the Macabbees. I pray other people would have the veil removed from their eyes and see the absolute truth that Hashem has made available to those who truly seek Him in spirit and in truth. Sending love and prayers!

The Ouija Board has a spirit that is NOT holy called Zozo. It is a vicious juvenile delinquent being that is a child murderer that will kill you. In other words it is a 13 year old demonic child murderer like Daemon Thorn in the Exorcist that says it is much more powerful than Jesus Christ which of course is a lie of this rebellious one.

May 27, 2023

Father, thanks that you are stronger. May your will will be done. In Jesus’ name, Amen

May 27, 2023

Abba, give us discernment so that when satan tries to come in that we know the Truth. He was subtle with Eve and she listened, give our children, youth, and young adults wisdom open their ears to hear Holy Spirit and their eyes to see Your angel armies there to defend them!
Thank You Father for Jesus which went to the cross but even more important He rose from the grave and gave us VICTORY!!! Let our children and grandchildren hear our prayers for them, let them know that there are prayers being prayed for them. In the mighty holy Name, the Name above all Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen

    Amen Amen and Amen

    Abba, Help us to be a better representation of Jesus to others through the Holy Spirit. My we have discernment and understanding, respect and compassion in all our ways. Give us more hearts to pray and desire to intercede for our young children and loved ones. May we all be led back to your heart in these days.

    Not only that but let us pray for those in opposition to us, those young children and people into divination and occultism- May they meet with God and Jesus in such a way they would be a “fire” starter for the one true God of Abraham Issac and Jacob- forsaking all their previous ways.

    In Jesus mighty name. Amen

Yes ago I was involved with studying card reading. Very much of the evil spirits. My God lead me to a church that was spirit filled and prayers in the spirit. My neighbors had been praying for me. I love being part of God’s perfect timing and prayers. Go to a church and get prayer. When I went to Walmart’s and Target, saw them supporting the gay lesbians lifestyle, I never went back. Prayers for business that are supporting evil. Disney wild be destroyed if they continue to supply evil against our kids and families. I have been thanking God for taking care of these evil spirits and kicking them out of our country. Amen

    May 27, 2023

    Praise God! Thank you for seeking after this author. We praise you for care about the individual. Please reach my loved ones: Jason and Lachlan. Turn them from evil and to your light. In Jesus’ name, Amen
