Why Are Satan and Demons Allowed to Produce Miracles? Part 2

I find it fascinating that God did not prohibit Satan and his minions from doing what they do naturally in their realm, here in this natural realm. Instead, God simply forbade the Israelites (and Christians as later reiterated in the NT in numerous places) to avoid going there. The door was never to be opened to that realm. Why not? Because those spiritual beings have no good intentions for humanity at all. Their goal is to help Satan bring his promises of Isaiah 14 to fruition, where he will become complete and total ruler of this world and make himself “like the Most High,” (Isaiah 14:14), for a very brief period of time. It all comes down to that, which, in my opinion, is the very reason he makes initial contact with Eve in the first place.

Why Are Satan and Demons Allowed to Produce Miracles? Part 1

We see throughout the Old and New Testaments these examples of what Satan is capable of doing. Again, I’d like to emphasize that anything he does, he does only with God’s permission, but clearly, he is a very powerful being and the fact that he exists mainly in the spiritual dimension gives him the power to bring about what we call miracles, but for him, they are simply part of his natural ability. I also think that this is why Christians should not chase after miracles per se, because in doing so, our emotions will often catch us up so that we will become so myopic that we will accept miracles from any source, believing that only God would provide what we deem the “miracles” to His children. This is absolutely incorrect thinking and the fact that God has forbidden any connection with the occult or dark arts is proof that alleged miracles can come not just from God, but from Satan and his demons as well. Satan exists in the supernatural realm, therefore it is reasonable to conclude that performing what we call miracles are natural for him. However, he is always kept in check by God.

Push-back Against Socialism

What we’re seeing in America is the result of the Elite forcing their plan onto society. They want things in upheaval as they move America toward Socialism. The more upheaval, the better, because it makes it difficult for people to concentrate on any one thing in society. This upheaval allows the Elite to bring their goals and ambitions to fruition because there is so much going on in society that acts as either a catalyst for their goals or distracts people from noticing them. It’s a form of Hegelian Dialectic at work and certainly, part of the reason all this is happening is so that people will eventually demand the government keep society safe. The government will be willing to do this by seriously curtailing and then outlawing personal gun ownership.

Sameness is the New Word for Socialism

This is why the arguments are being made that we must have “compassion” on those who have peanut allergies or who identify as female, though biologically male (or visa versa). There is also a push that parents of young children should no longer read to them, but should wait until their children get to school. The argument is that since many parents cannot (or simply don’t) read to their young children, the parents who do read to theirs are creating a situation in which their children are ahead of the game. This creates an unfair situation for those children whose parents, for one reason or another, do not read to their kids. This is an “unfair advantage” against those children. Society is being told that we must now reduce ourselves to the lowest common denominator. What’s next, the eradication of all competitive sports? That’s actually been in the works for a while.

It’s Just Becoming Weird, Isn’t It?

The last few weeks, my soul has grown weary. I find myself simply saddened at the chosen fate of too many today. They cannot listen to reason because they simply cannot reason. They are spiritually dead in their sins and cannot extricate themselves. Instead of being able to make good and right decisions, they continue to make decisions that place them deeper and deeper inside the lies that surround them and guide them along. Those lies, seen as truth, continue to guide them away from God in Christ.

Does Neil Postman Offer Us a Solution?

Postman notes that by the time the average American reaches 40 years of age, he/she will have seen “well over one million television commercials in his or her lifetime, and has close to another million to go before the first Social Security check arrives. Every program on television has a “sponsor,” a company that pays hundreds of thousands of dollars (or even millions, depending upon the program), to advertise their product during that show’s broadcast. Because of that, things have become very one-sided. While Postman does not condemn capitalism, he certainly understands that some of these corporations have become so large, they are their own monopolies and because of that, can and do dictate to society and even to our government how things are to be done. This, he says, has destroyed public discourse as it is supposed to be. He even notes that because of commercials, people began to stop using prepositions and that began in the 1950’s. It’s even worse today. This has been done through substituting images for claims related to a product. It’s not even talking. It’s merely a progression of images with a bed of pleasant music underneath.

What’s Up With ISIS and Who Created Them?

There are numerous opinions as to how ISIS came into being, who is supplying them with weapons and how they are funded. Opinions range from the CIA (USA) created ISIS and weapons of mass destruction were illegally sent to ISIS groups in Syria under cover of the upheaval during Qaddafi’s overthrow in Libya, to the Saudi Arabians created and continue to fund the terrorist organization. There are other possibilities as well. Among so-called conspiracy theorists and theories, ISIS was created, weaponized, funded, and directed by the most powerful cabal in the world, the Elite (also known by numerous other names).
