Satanism, Devil Worship, False Prophets And Exorcisms A Booming Business

"Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto himThat ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled .... as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (Anti-Christ); Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."  2Thess.2:1-4
As the world grows nearer to the return of Jesus Christ, "in the air", to catch away His followers, we also grow nearer to the Counterfeit Christ, the Anti-Christ's arrival on the world stage, as a Savior of the world, to take charge of the billions of souls who will be left behind. His arrival and seven year reign, the Tribulation Period, will begin almost simultaneously to the Rapture ... departure of all Christian influence from the earth as Christ's Bride, His true believers from thousands of local, visible congregations and cemeteries are resurrected and Raptured, caught away into heaven with Christ. "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that when he shall appear, we
shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." 1 John 3:2

When the rapture of all Born Again Christians takes place, and there is not one Christian left on earth, God's Holy Spirit, who lived and worked and witnessed through those Christians is then also gone from the earth with them.

"And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the wayAnd then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming." 2 Thess. 2:6-8.  This speaks of the only thing which "withholds" or holds back the power of Satan on earth during this Church Age Dispensation, and that is the Holy Spirit of God within every true Christian, and in Christ's true Churches. When His Church's are gone, the Spirit Of Christ is gone also. "Then shall that Wicked one (Anti-Christ) be revealed" and take control of the New World Order which the thousands of Anti-Christ's heralders, who have the spirit of anti-Christ have been building called "Globalism". So, in the first phase of Christ's Second Coming, his coming will be "in the air" to gather up his believers, as described in 1 Thess.4:16-17 ... "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air ....." The second phase of His Second Coming will be seven years later, after "Jacob's Trouble" the Tribulation, during which the Jews will awaken to Jesus as their prophesied Messiah. "Christ" is the Greek word for the Hebrew word "Messiah". "And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn." Zech.12:10.
"For, lo, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah (Nazi Holocaust), saith the Lord: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it (1948 Israel restored as a nation). And these are the words that the Lord spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus saith the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of a woman in travail .... Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble (7 yr. Tribulation Period), but he shall be saved out of it." Jer.30:3-7. The 7 years of Tribulation is the final 7 years of 490 years of God's final dealing with Israel, which He paused in its 483rd year when He withdrew His hand from Israel upon their rejection of Christ, their Messiah. At that time God turned from the physical nation of Israel to the spiritual nation of His Christian believers, and established His church..."...upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." That happened in Matt.16:18, and then He said to the Jews ..."Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof." Matt.21:43. It was at this point that Christ's Bible Preaching, Christ honoring churches received the work of "The Kingdom of God" and became the spiritual, Salvation Nation commissioned to carry the Gospel of Christ to the ends of the world. This blog, "Salvation Nation" is a participant in that assignment.
But now we are approaching the end of the dispensation of the Church Age. End times prophecies are rapidly being fulfilled, thousands of little anti-Christs with the "spirit of Anti-Christ" are frantically preparing the way for his revealing upon the world stage. Satan is "... going to and fro in the earth, and ... walking up and down in it." Job.2:2. Sin is sweeping across the world like a tidal wave of destruction. The whole world is in turmoil politically, financially and spiritually.
False prophets abound. Prisons are full. Education is Anti-Christian. Leadership is corrupt. The whole thing is out of control and ripe for a global leader who will perform miracles and promise peace, equality, health, wealth and safety."They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peacepeacewhen there is no peace." Jer.6:14.
Demon possession, in anticipation of the rise of a world leader masked in an appearance of love for the people, benevolence, supreme intelligence, hope and change, will begin to stir within vulnerable souls, anxious to take control. And whether real demon possession, pretended demon possession, or suspected demon possession, the results are similar, more openness to the Devil and his demons. Strangely, the Catholic church has suddenly had an explosion of demon
possession or demon oppression or demon obsession (hysteria). The Holy Spirit is still "holding back" these "powers of darkness", Eph.6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." But they see their time is coming when the Holy 
Spirit will be taken away with Christians in the Rapture, and they are jerking their chain like a mad dog.

Here is an example, arising at the heart of Catholicism, of what will precede the rise of Anti-Christ and the Rapture of Christians. Real or not, this will spread around the world.

Report: As Satanism Grows, Italy Experiencing a ‘Boom’ in Exorcisms

From BreitBart Newsletter


The number of exorcisms has been rising sharply in Italy, with some 500,000 Italians requesting an exorcism each year and not nearly enough exorcists to meet the rising demand, according to recent reports. The archdiocese of Milan in northern Italy has doubled the number of its exorcists, while an exorcism hotline has been launched in Rome, but those in the field claim it isn’t nearly enough.

Rome’s most famous exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth (pictured), died last month and his successor, Father Vincenzo Taraborelli, says that he cannot keep up with the daily requests for liberation from demonic influence. “Padre Vincenzo,” as he is known, handles some 30 “clients” a day, and is calling on the Church to appoint more priests as exorcists to share in the mission of satanic deliverance.

“There are only nine of us left and many more are needed,” he said. “We need other priests like me to meet the needs of so many families.”

Last month, an Italian documentary on exorcism called “Liberami” won the award for “best film” in the Venice Horizons category at this year’s Venice Film Festival, drawing still more attention to this rapidly growing industry.

In her film, director Federica Di Giacomo’s explores the exorcism efforts of Father Cataldo, a veteran exorcist in Sicily who is sought out in increasing numbers by Catholics who suspect they may be tormented or possessed by the devil.

Just south of Rome, in the diocese of Frosinone, exorcist Father Ildebrando Di Fulvio receives a constant stream of people asking for help “countering the strength of the devil” in the Cistercian abbey where he works.

Though quick to admit that many people who believe they are possessed are actually suffering from chronic depression or other mental illnesses, Di Fulvio says that the devil’s main advantage is “convincing people he doesn’t exist.”

Di Fulvio says that there are a number of external signs that can help distinguish between someone under the influence of Satan from someone who is mentally ill. Such signs include “a deformed facial expression; a cavernous voice; spitting out food or metallic objects they never ingested; speaking in archaic languages they don’t know consciously like Hebrew, ancient Greek, Latin, and Aramaic; an unnatural physical strength they don’t normally possess; and violent reactions to deliverance prayers and holy water.”

The priest also noted that often people become possessed after participating in séances or Satanic masses, or after joining Satanic sects and cults.

Father Aldo Buonaiuto, an exorcist in the northeastern Catholic diocese of Fabriano-Matelica, shares Di Fulvio’s concerns. According to the priest, some 10 million Italians have consulted wizards, witches, fortune tellers, and astrologers at least once in their lives.

“Most of them are charlatans who dupe desperate customers, but among them are some Satanists,” he said.

As “tools of the trade,” every exorcist carries a crucifix and holy water, and there are established deliverance prayers and rites used for the exorcism itself.

“Exorcisms aren’t for the faint of heart and patients must go through a spiritual journey first,” says Buonaiuto. “The first step is speaking with family members and psychiatrists to identify whether it’s a medical issue or not.”

There Is No Harmless Fire

"And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell." James 3:6, the Lord's half brother, said that...

It is commonly whispered by the compulsive liar
Evil surmising..."Where there's smoke there's fire"
A hint of suspicion drug up from the mire
And sped all around like a jilted lover's ire.
To drag down and hurt is as devilish a desire
As a drug pusher's dope or a prostitute's hire.
Gossip is a seller and if you are a buyer
You may buy a spark but pay much higher.
For a spark is a forest fire awaiting a defyer
To ignite a pine straw and burn a forest entire.
So think before you handle that little 220 wire
Which has bolts of volts but no smoke does require
Cause you can bet your boots... there lies a fire.
Now if you touch it and become a sky flyer
Let's hope there awaits you a heavenly choir
Singing your song... "There is no harmless fire". 
Yes, I said that... Rayburn Blair

Faith Only Works When Mixed With Love

"... Faith which worketh by love." Galatians 5:6

The Sandpiper
by Robert Peterson
She was six years old when I first met her on the beach near where I live.  

I drive to this beach, a distance of three or four miles, whenever the world begins to close in on me.  She was building a sand castle or something 
 and looked up, her eyes as blue as the sea.  

"Hello," she said. 
I answered with a nod, not really in the mood to bother with a small child.  

"I'm building," she said.  

"I see that.  What is it?"  I asked, not really caring.    "Oh, I don't know, I just like the feel of sand."  
That sounds good, I thought, and slipped off my shoes. 

A sandpiper glided by.   
"That's a joy," the child said.  
"It's a what?"  
"It's a joy.  My mama says sandpipers come to bring us joy."   

The bird went gliding down the beach.  Good-bye joy, I muttered to myself,  hello pain, and turned to walk on.  I was depressed, my life seemed completely out of balance.  

"What's your name?"  She wouldn't give up.  

"Robert," I answered.  "I'm Robert Peterson."  
"Mine's Wendy... I'm six."  
"Hi, Wendy."   
She giggled.  "You're funny," she said.   
In spite of my gloom, I laughed too and walked on.   
Her musical giggle followed me.  

"Come again, Mr.. P," she called.  "We'll have another happy day."  
The next few days consisted of a group of unruly Boy Scouts, PTA meetings, and an ailing mother.  The sun was shining one morning as I took my hands out of the dishwater.  I need a sandpiper, I said to myself, gathering up my coat.   
The ever-changing balm of the seashore awaited me..  The breeze was chilly but I strode along, trying to recapture the serenity I needed.   
"Hello, Mr. P," she said.  "Do you want to play?"   
"What did you have in mind?" I asked, with a twinge of annoyance.   
"I don't know.  You say."   
"How about charades?"  I asked sarcastically.   
The tinkling laughter burst forth again.  "I don't know what that is."   
"Then let's just walk."   
Looking at her, I noticed the delicate fairness of her face.  
"Where do you live?" I asked.  
"Over there."  She pointed toward a row of summer cottages.   
Strange, I thought, in winter.   
"Where do you go to school?"  
"I don't go to school.  Mommy says we're on vacation"   
She chattered little girl talk as we strolled up the beach, but my mind was on other things.  When I left for home, Wendy said it had been a happy day.  Feeling surprisingly better, I smiled at her and agreed.  

Three weeks later, I rushed to my beach in a state of near panic.  I was in no mood to even greet Wendy.  I thought I saw her mother on the porch and felt like demanding she keep her child at home. 

"Look, if you don't mind," I said crossly when Wendy caught up with me, "I'd rather be alone today."  She seemed unusually pale and out of breath.  
"Why?" she asked.   
I turned to her and shouted, "Because my mother died!" and thought, My God, why was I saying this to a little child?   
"Oh," she said quietly, "then this is a bad day."   
"Yes," I said, "and yesterday and the day before and -- oh, go away!"   
"Did it hurt?" she inquired.  
"Did what hurt?" I was exasperated with her, with myself.
"When she died?" 
"Of course it hurt!" I snapped, misunderstanding, 
wrapped up in myself.  I strode off. 

A month or so after that, when I next went to the beach, she wasn't there. 
 Feeling guilty, ashamed, and admitting to myself I missed her, I went up to the cottage after my walk and knocked at the door.  A drawn looking young woman with honey-colored hair opened the door.   

"Hello," I said, "I'm Robert Peterson.  I missed your little girl today and wondered where she was." 

"Oh yes, Mr. Peterson, please come in.  Wendy spoke of you so much. 
 I'm afraid I allowed her to bother you.  If she was a nuisance, please, accept my apologies."   

"Not at all! she's a delightful child."  I said, suddenly realizing
 that I meant what I had just said.   

"Wendy died last week, Mr. Peterson.  She had leukemia
Maybe she didn't tell you."   

Struck dumb, I groped for a chair.  I had to catch my breath. 

"She loved this beach, so when she asked to come, we couldn't say no. 
 She seemed so much better here and had a lot of what she called happy days. But the last few weeks, she declined rapidly..." Her voice faltered, "She left something for you, if only I can find it.  Could you wait a moment while I look?"   

I nodded stupidly, my mind racing for something to say to this lovely young woman.  She handed me a smeared envelope with "MR. P" printed in bold childish letters..  Inside was a drawing in bright crayon hues -- a yellow beach, a blue sea, and a brown bird.  Underneath was carefully printed: 


Tears welled up in my eyes, and a heart that had almost forgotten to love opened wide.  I took Wendy's mother in my arms.  "I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry," I uttered over and over, and we wept together.  The precious little picture is framed now and hangs in my study.  Six words -- one for each year of her life -- that speak to me of harmony, courage, and undemanding love. 

A gift from a child with sea blue eyes and hair the color of sand 
 -- who taught me the gift of love.    

NOTE: This is a true story sent out by Robert Peterson.  It happened over 20 years ago and the incident changed his life forever.  It serves as a reminder to all of us that we need to take time to enjoy living and life and each other.
 The price of hating other human beings is loving oneself less.  

Life is so complicated, the hustle and bustle of everyday traumas can make us lose focus about what is truly important
 or what is only a momentary setback or crisis..  

This week, be sure to give your loved ones an extra hug, and by all means, take a moment... even if it is only ten seconds, to stop and smell the roses. 

This comes from someone's heart, and is read by many and now I share it with you.. 

May God Bless everyone who receives this!  There are NO coincidences! 

Everything that happens to us happens for a reason.  Never brush aside anyone as insignificant.  Who knows what they can teach us? 

I wish for you, a sandpiper.

  "If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us."
1 John 4:12
