Are we living in a shadow of evil?
It may sound like a rhetorical question, but let’s consider what the confrontation between Jesus and the scribes and Pharisees was all about. Following the Beatitudes, Jesus continues with the deeper meaning of the commandments, to explain the real intent of the law. “You have heard that it was said you shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment. But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be answerable to the Sanhedrin.” “You have heard that it was said, You shall not commit adultery. But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.: (Mt. 5: 21 - 22, 27 - 28).
Very direct statement to those who thought they were already in good standing with God since their adherence to the law was noteworthy. How far away from understanding the truth we are regarding our simplistic attitude about how quickly evil intent, let alone the actual falling into it.
During the mission of Jesus, he was able to confront the leaders of the law where they could not see the depth of their hypocrisy and were blinded by their own pride.
Let’s move ahead 2,000 years and make a list from A to Z where the same hypocrisy and mental intuition has crept into our society. Much of this you have already heard or read, but combining all of these evil corruptions the total destruction of our present society will jump out like a cannonball.
As young children, those like myself, remember the first thing we did before classes began was to stand, place our right hand over our hearts and recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America. Of course that was in the 1940’s where we were in a war with Japan and quickly with Germany as well. The voluntary pronouncement of our status as patriots went far and wide, as we saw our fathers enlisting in the armed forces to defend our rights and freedoms.
At some point, politicians representing the now far left decided God should not be mentioned in any public arena. It was swift and complete when the Pledge of Allegiance was removed. About the same time the Ten Commandments also was upsetting these left ringers and no public building would be allowed to display this original command given from God through Moses.
These are still vibrating within the minds of all God-fearing and worshiping Jews and Christians.
LIke the Jews in Germany and Poland, to name at least two nations, where the deep fears of the Third Reich threatened their very lives, becoming a sign of certain death. This led to the extermination of over 6 million Jews and perhaps Christian sympathizers as well.
Moving into our current situation we are looking at elementary school children facing more than one evil hitting our sense of rights to be ourselves. First, this whole scenario of teachers taking the right to teach children the evil content of sexuality from books that the parents are not allowed to view. Then, some cities are allowing hospitals to cooperate with schools and are operating on children to castrate boys, remove birthing organs from little girls, and overall change their attitude of normal procreation to the rule of government. Hello 1984!
If this wasn’t enough, there are publications now in print where pornagraphic material is being given to these same school age children as a way of indoctrinating them to a manner of living as devil worshipers and adhering to immoral sex as the status quo.
And the black masses are on the move. This has been around for a number of years and creates a paranoid view of seeing some people walk away with consecrated hosts, where some end up at these black masses where the hosts are desecrated. They may not believe in the Presence of Christ, but are certainly attacking God whom they will be punished in hell for their hatred and doing the mission of Satan.
By the way, each of the evils listed within this article are Satan related and the sad thing is how some have been drawn into this evil that can only send those without God’s mercy to hell.
Remember, God will not send one soul to hell. Those who end there are the manner that they chose by their free will to eternal death, from which there is no escape.
This shadow of evil is not a hyperbole, it is real, here, and just over our shoulders waiting for an opportunity to strike.
