The Spiritual Darkness Of Black Panther And Why Believers And Followers Of Jesus Should Not Watch It

The Spiritual Darkness Of Black Panther And Why Believers And Followers Of Jesus Should Not Watch It Blog Post Banner Image

The spiritual darkness of Black Panther and why believers and followers of Jesus should not watch it.

Black Panther: The Afro-futuristic Modern Movie everyone is raving and waving about. 

The pressure, adverts and promotions to watch the movie is escalating with various positive and brilliant reviews from all quarters. Black Panther is breaking world records, stunning and delighting movie goers.

Forbes has this to say about the Black Panther Movie, “The fact that Black Panther has gone toe-to-toe with mega-blockbusters like The Last Jedi and Jurassic World is even more impressive considering that, despite existing within the MCU, it’s still the first in its series.” 

Ryan Coogler‘s masterful superhero drama is unlike any other, featuring outstanding acting, breathtaking art direction, fascinating royal intrigue, memorable action sequences, and surprising depth. It’s that depth — of character, of storyline, of relevancy — that makes Black Panther shine. Writes Sandie Angulo Chen of Common Sense Media.

Despite such glorious reviews, I will however not be one of those watching Black Panther. I’m an ordinary woman who loves Jesus and not a celebrity so you don’t have to take what I write seriously but before you stop reading, I beg you to at least give me the chance to tell you why I feel strongly that believers in Jesus like me should resist the temptation to watch this Movie.

Even the name itself is telling. Black Panther is the name given to supposed black colored big Cats like Leopards and Jaguars but there is a disturbing way, I can’t stop thinking of serpents every time someone mentions this movie. Maybe because it makes me think of Leopard snakes which remind me of folks who breed snakes for leisure and the recent drama in Nigeria where a snake is purported to have eaten 36 Million Naira which is about 99, 000 US Dollars from an office building.

But I’m digressing, so back to Black Panther the Movie:

There is the nagging thought that there was once a far left political party called Black Panther Party, founded in 1966 in Oakland, California USA by Bobby Seale and Huey Newton whose ideologies were Communism, Anti-fascism, Anti-imperialism, Marxism-Leninism, Revolutionary Socialism.

As if to confirm my suspicions, further reading of Sandie Angulo’s review of the Movie reveals two interesting facts.

a. One of the Characters in the supposed fictional movie visits Oakland, California where the Black Panther party was founded. Oh what a coincidence right? Unfortunately I don’t believe in coincidences. 

“After a folktale-like prologue that recounts the history of the fictional African nation of Wakanda, BLACK PANTHER opens with a flashback to 1992, when a younger T’Chaka (Atandwa Kani) makes a surprise visit to Oakland, California, to confront a rogue Wakandan spy. Back in the present, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) is preparing for his coronation day, which includes a potential challenge — through ritual combat — from any of Wakanda’s five tribes, as well as a sacred ceremony in which he officially becomes the nation’s Black Panther” Sandie Angulo Chen

b. Ritual combat? Sacred Ceremonies? What kind of rituals and sacred ceremonies are these? Do they align with the Bible? Are they Holy ceremonies or is the movie just trying to take us back to ancient and ancestral spirits and dangerous gods and goddesses? 

I don’t think these ritual ceremonies are pleasing to God as he is particular and takes idolatry very seriously. Despite what the Liberal media is hiding in plain sight and refusing to say openly, this movie is very spiritual. And it aligns strongly with the dark forces. 

15 “Take careful heed to yourselves, for you saw no form when the Lord spoke to you at Horeb out of the midst of the fire, 

16 lest you act corruptly and make for yourselves a carved image in the form of any figure: the likeness of male or female, 

17 the likeness of any animal that is on the earth or the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the air, 

18 the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground or the likeness of any fish that is in the water beneath the earth. 19 And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them, which the Lord your God has given to all the peoples under the whole heaven as a heritage.

Deuteronomy 4:15-19

“The cultural critic Mark Dery galvanized a generation of artists and intellectuals when he argued during the 1990s that African-Americans whose histories had been obscured by slavery and racism were in danger of being written out of the future as well — unless they engaged the areas of art, literature and technology through which that future was being envisioned.” The New York Times writes about the Black Panther Movie. 

I disagree with the New York Times. I think if we continue with these kind of exaggerations we are in danger of becoming Hypocrites. As Africans keep dwelling on their slavery and refusing to focus on anyone else except their plight, they are in danger of turning racist if they haven’t already.

For 430 years, the Jews were slaves in Egypt which is found in the African continent but seldom do you hear Jews complain and dwell on those horrific years of oppression and hard labor in Africa. Instead they choose to honor their God and celebrate their deliverance from slavery. But not Africans. Africans despite being freed from slavery are still finding ways to play Martyr.

40 The time that the Israelites lived in Egypt was 430 years. 41 At the end of 430 years, on that same day, all the Lord’s divisions went out from the land of Egypt. 42 It was a night of vigil in honor of the Lord, because He would bring them out of the land of Egypt. This same night is in honor of the Lord, a night vigil for all the Israelites throughout their generations. Exodus 12:40-42

Marvel Studios has certainly done a lot of work to out do their competitors as we see with the High grossing figures but there is something very telling about the dark origins of the Black Panther as revealed by Time in this statement.

“After the Obama era, perhaps none of this should feel groundbreaking. But it does. In the midst of a regressive cultural and political moment fueled in part by the white-nativist movement, the very existence of Black Panther feels like resistance. Its themes challenge institutional bias, its characters take unsubtle digs at oppressors, and its narrative includes prismatic perspectives on black life and tradition. The fact that Black Panther is excellent only helps.”  Time

Oh! So it’s a rebellion after all. I thought this was all just entertainment, laughter and Popcorn.

And a resistance? Are they using a movie to stage a coup of sorts?

I guess what the dark forces need to realize is that Rebellion is as the sin of Divination and Witchcraft. It’s this sin among others that got Saul rejected as King. Are they thus subtly telling us they are encouraging rebellion, divination, witchcraft and idolatry with this movie?

 23 For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and defiance is like wickedness and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,

He has rejected you as king. 1 Samuel 15:23

However the cherry for me was this Interview by Gal-dem titled: “Black Panther and Re-Imagining Africa: An Interview with Lupita And Danai. Lupita’s word were very eye opening and telling about the real motives behind this movie and why everyone is being encouraged to go watch it.

“Women in positions of power, it’s just demystifying a whole lot of things that is really going to change the way children see themselves, in the back of their heads, it doesn’t have to be a direct effect, but it’s the reconditioning of the subconscious mind and that’s where real change comes.” Lupita Nyong’o

1. So the dark forces want to recondition the minds of children at an early age? They want to fill their young minds with Hollywood, war, violence, indecency, disrespect, fornication, idolatry, witchcraft, sorcery, witchcraft etc. Reminds me of the adage of “catch them while they are still young.” 

Look how much damage the emergence of Harry Potter did to young minds. Harry Potter caused a major shift in the Spiritual and gave a lot of ammunition to the dark forces. Now, Black Panther promises to do that and even much worse if believers in Jesus stay asleep and refuse to open their eyes.

If you think I’m being too extreme, do a research on the number of drug addicts and what age group they lie in and then align that to the emergence of Harry Potter. 

And honestly If this movie depicts a version of the future, with no Jesus in it, then I want no part in it. 

I can certainly understand why the Bible encourages believers to train their children in the ways of God as early as possible and to feed them on his laws and word.

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

2. “Women in Positions of Power”. 

While I believe in the special role women play, their abilities, power and the amazing things they are capable of, (I explore some of these themes in my series on Scandalous women in the Bible), I feel like Lupita’s words are speaking of a non-biblical kind of power and energy. The negative, radical, demonic kind of female power and energy that Feminism is advocating and pushing to destroy families.

“Everything you see in this film is deliberate and it’s taken from actual cultures around the continent and so this is a showcasing of those and paying homage to that culture and celebrating it, we’re seeing it in the drawing of beauty and wealth.” Lupita Nyong’o

a. Everything is deliberate and intentional. Of course it is. Do the dark forces ever do anything ignorantly? 

In fact truth is most believers are lazy and so they live in ignorance and forsake knowledge. But this is not so with the dark forces. The dark forces feed on knowledge. That is how the devil tried tempting Jesus in the wilderness. By using knowledge of the word. That is how Lucifer was able to accuse Job in front of God and ask God for permission to torture Job.

It’s high time believers started real knowledge and they stop wasting time living ignorantly. Hosea 4;6 comes to mind.

6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. Hosea 4:6

b. Her statement saying it’s deliberate just screams Informed Spiritual consent and Implied Spiritual consent. They want to control your mind. It’s an agenda they are pushing but they still need your permission and money to push that agenda. How convenient.

Signs In The Skies, Moon And Stars – Super Blue Blood Moon – Harbingers Of The End Times

Signs In The Skies, Moon And Stars - Super Blue Blood Moon - Harbingers Of The End Times Blog Post Banner Image

Signs In The Skies, Moon And Stars – Super Blue Blood Moon – Harbingers Of The End Times.

I don’t believe in Astrology, reading palms and other practices of reading the stars and planets to determine destines, foretell the future etc but I do believe in the Bible and the word of God.

I believe when the good book caution’s us to be alert and awake so that the Bridegroom finds us prepared and ready at his coming.

Every week seems to come with it’s own signs of the end times with cosmological, astronomical, political, social and other signs.

A few days back, I wrote on the Various Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions that shook the Earth. A few weeks before that, I reported on Hurricanes, Fires, Winter storms, Epidemics and other signs many people were oblivious to.

As the rest of the world anxiously waits to watch the Super Blue Blood Moon that hasn’t occurred in 152 years (Last happened March 31, 1866), all I can think of are these Bible Scriptures.

25 “Then there will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and there will be anguish on the earth among nations bewildered by the roaring sea and waves. 

26 People will faint from fear and expectation of the things that are coming on the world, because the celestial powers will be shaken. 

27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 

28 But when these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near!”

Luke 21:25-28

12 Then I saw Him open the sixth seal. A violent earthquake occurred; the sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair; the entire moon became like blood; 13 the stars of heaven fell to the earth as a fig tree drops its unripe figs when shaken by a high wind;

Revelation 6:12-13

The Super Blue Blood Moon simply put is:

– Super-moon: The Moon’s Closet point to Earth.

– Blue Moon: When two full moons occur twice in a moon, the second full moon is defined a Blue Moon.

– Blood Moon: A total lunar Eclipse which makes the moon look red.

Various Earthquakes And Volcanic Eruptions In A Space Of Days – Harbingers Of The End Times

Various Earthquakes And Volcanic Eruptions In A Space Of Days - Harbingers Of The End Times Blog Post Banner Image

Various Earthquakes And Volcanic Eruptions In A Space Of Days – Harbingers Of The End Times.

In a space of less than a week, various places in the world have experienced earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.  As the days go on, it feels like Cosmology keeps going through a sort of metarmophosis daily. 

A few days back, I did write an article speaking on hurricanes, fires, winter storms, earth quakes, epidemics as being signs of the end times and various Bible verses to accompany the article.

Well, the latest Earthquakes and Volcanoes are just more Harbingers signaling the times.

As we watch these often disturbing events, I hope we can take comfort in the knowledge that Jesus is in control and we need not fear.

The Bible does talk about the last days and what will happen;

17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,

That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;

Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,

Your young men shall see visions,

Your old men shall dream dreams.

18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants

I will pour out My Spirit in those days;

And they shall prophesy.

19 I will show wonders in heaven above

And signs in the earth beneath:

Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness,

And the moon into blood,

Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.

21 And it shall come to pass

That whoever calls on the name of the Lord

Shall be saved.’

Acts 2:17-21

Below, I have collected some of the latest cosmological occurrences and what the major news outlets are saying about the events.

Fiery Philippine Volcano Mount Mayon Forces 56,000 People to Evacuate

“The Philippines’ most active volcano spewed fountains of red-hot lava and massive ash plumes Tuesday in a dazzling but dangerous eruption that has sent 56,000 villagers to shelter in evacuation centers.

Lava fountains gushed 700 meters, or about 2,300 feet, above Mount Mayon’s crater and ash plumes rose up to 3 kilometers at night and at least twice Tuesday, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology. An explosive eruption Monday was the most powerful since the volcano started acting up more than a week ago.”

Mayon Volcano Alert Raised to Level Four: ‘Intense Unrest’

“Mayon sits about 500 kilometres southwest from the capital of Manila. It’s the most active volcano in the Philippines, although it’s been relatively calm since its last major eruption in 2009. In 2013, a freak explosion at the summit killed five climbers, including three Germans, one Spaniard and a Filipino tour guide. Despite the tragedy, the alert level remained at 0.

On January 13 this year the cone began releasing clouds of ash, prompting the evacuation of surrounding areas. More than 24,000 people have since been relocated.”

I recently wrote an article titled, “Who do you dress for?” After writing the article, I shared it with one of my friends. Her first response after reading my piece was, “Hannah, where do you expect Christian Women to get fashionable clothes from? Everything being produced these days is designed to cater to secular tastes. Yes, I want to dress appropriately in a way that please’s God but I also want to look trendy, fashionable and stylish while doing it. I don’t want to be know as the ‘frumpy Christian woman’ who has a boring sense of style.”

I heartily laughed at her comments. And it was her comments that led me on search for fashionable, classy, trendy, stylish, clothes for Christian and godly women. I believe Christian Women can be fashionable, trendy, stylish and decent all at once. One doesn’t need to show their thighs, buttocks, breasts, cleavage etc to look attractive, classy, elegant, chic and smart.

This is going to be a series where I write on Asian Inspired designs, African Inspired designs, European and Western Inspired designs, Accessories, Shoes and anything else to show that the Christian women of our times, no matter their age can dress fashionably and still please God at the same time. You don’t need to give in to secular influences to look great. If you missed some of the articles in this series, you can catch up by clicking the links below.

I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; 9 in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, 10 but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works.

Hurricanes, Fires, Winter Storms, Earth Quakes, Epidemics – Signs People Don’t See And Bible Prophecies – Harbingers Of The End Times.

In recent times, our world has been plagued with many disasters. The news keeps flowing in from all over the world. There is no place in the world that has not suffered one calamity or another. The intensity and frequency of these events keeps increasing and intensifying. 

Many people have not taken much heed to these Harbingers and signs of our times. Wickedness has intensified. Sin and Idol worship is glorified. Righteousness is frowned upon. Godly living is considered outdated.

Some of the things people do in the dark are unutterable and abominable.

Many people have been told the lie that Heaven and Hell are not real. Unfortunately so many people have accepted this deception and been led astray. Living life recklessly because they don’t believe there is an afterlife.

These are signs of the End times as prophesied in the Bible and yet many people can’t these signs and harbingers because they are blinded by sin and iniquity.

Despite these happenings in the world, we can live with hope and be comforted that where ever we might live, however bad the situation might be, Jesus has us covered and protected. We only need trust him and listen to his Holy Spirit.

The Prophet Hosea said:

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6

And Prophet Ezekiel adds:

This is the declaration of the Lord God.
9 I will trouble the hearts of many peoples,
when I bring about your destruction
among the nations,
in countries you do not know.

Ezekiel 32:8-9

I pray that people can finally wake up to the realities of the days. I pray that the Lord will give Knowledge to those who lack it so that they are not ignorant. I pray that people can turn to God and make their robes clean so that when Jesus Christ comes, he will find a clean church that has been washed in his blood and is living righteously. I pray people turn away from shameful and sinful acts. I pray for renewal and conversion of souls. I pray People receive Jesus.

Disease Epidemics and Outbreaks

10 Are there yet the treasures of wickedness
In the house of the wicked,
And the short measure that is an abomination?
11 Shall I count pure those with the wicked scales,
And with the bag of deceitful weights?
12 For her rich men are full of violence,
Her inhabitants have spoken lies,
And their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
13 “Therefore I will also make you sick by striking you,
By making you desolate because of your sins.
14 You shall eat, but not be satisfied;
Hunger shall be in your midst.
You may carry some away, but shall not save them;
And what you do rescue I will give over to the sword.

Micah 6:10-14

This is the declaration of the Lord of Hosts.

Malnutrition

15 ‘So it shall be a reproach, a taunt, a lesson, and an astonishment to the nations that are all around you, when I execute judgments among you in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I, the Lord, have spoken. 16 When I send against them the terrible arrows of famine which shall be for destruction, which I will send to destroy you, I will increase the famine upon you and cut off your supply of bread. 17 So I will send against you famine and wild beasts, and they will bereave you. Pestilence and blood shall pass through you, and I will bring the sword against you. I, the Lord, have spoken.’ ”

Ezekiel 5:15-17

Earth Quakes

10 The earth quakes before them,
The heavens tremble;
The sun and moon grow dark,

Is Hollywood A House Of Chaos And Curses – Harbingers Of The End Times.



The Devil’s Playground is crushing fast and falling hard. The Dominoes seem to be falling at an alarming rate. The speed at which scandals seem to be coming out of the Movie and especially Hollywood empire makes me very curious.Barely a week goes by without someone losing or a big secret leaking out. 


Some of the secrets, decades old. In fact of late some of the stories doing the rounds sound like stuff taken out of movie scripts. Is what we are seeing reality or are we all starring in a big movie? The latest and really dizzying season seems to have started and massively accelerated about the time the Playboy Kingpin Hugh Hefner passed away. It’s sad that he died because any life lost is a terrible occurrence.  


But he also sold many souls to the devil through the utterly carnal material he offered for years that corrupted the minds of many men and women. When he had just died, I quickly wondered whether he had got any crowns from the devil for all the work he did or the ungodly empire he run for years.I can only pray that on his death bed, he denounced the devil and accepted Jesus as Lord and saviour. 


Anyhow as I was curiously thinking of crowns I just as quickly realized that any worldly deeds done that are not in accordance with the will and the word of God are never worth any riches, fame or anything the devil will ever give anyone because Jesus asks one of the most important questions anyone will ever ask. 

What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 

Matthew 16:26


A few days back while discussing the Harvey Weinstein drama and the spiritual implications of the various allegations levied against him, a dear friend asked me some deep and thoughtful questions I couldn’t understand at first. 


1. Is Harvey Weinstein simply a bait to catch someone bigger?

2. Is his story a coverup for something even more devious and sinister in the Kingdom of the devil. However as the days go on, I’m now certainly starting to get her. 


According to her, she felt like Harvey Weinstein was taking the fall for someone even higher up the ranks in the devil’s kingdom. And now, I’m certainly starting to understand her point. I mean why would almost everyone suddenly turn on him? The very same people who benefitted from his weakness and sin the most for years. The same people who knew and yet supported and abetted his habits instead of helping him quit? Unless of course they were all members of the same House. 


As I contemplated his story as it unfolded, it felt more and more like the Mafia was turning on one of it’s own members and the more I thought about it, the more curious I became. And now, barely a month since I had that conversation with my friend, another big scandal has broken out in the movie world. Indeed the Devil’s kingdom is turning on itself as Jesus said in these Poignant verses. 


Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? 27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. 29 “Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house. 

Matthew 12:25-29


Saga after saga after saga is haunting the Movie world and  Hollywood. People seriously need to give their lives to Jesus before it’s too late. We need to repent and turn back to the Lord before he comes back. And let no one make any mistake. Jesus will come back. The same way he went. The scriptures say so and the Bible Scriptures are true and very valid.


Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. 

Matthew 24:30


Anyhow so folks went and dug up 30+ year old dirt on Kevin Spacey. But this life is not easy! 30+ whole years? Who keeps a grudge that long only waiting for the right moment to destroy you and everything you have built for years? The devil of course. It’s only the devil who never forgets sin and waits for an opportune moment to accuse people before God. The devil lives on accusations and Apostle John wrote this about him in revelations.


Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have come the salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down. 

Revelation 12:10


Jesus offers healing, forgiveness and redemption but the devil keeps score and doesn’t forgive. I’m not Justifying Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, Jeremy Piven or anyone’s carnal and ungodly actions, behavior or lifestyle. However what these stories and unfolding drama teach us is that the Kingdom of Satan which has been hugely supported by the movie and television industry is destroying itself. The spiritual battle is waging and the invisible forces are battling hard. 


Many celebrities are going to come under fire. I mean in a space of hours, after the Kevin Spacey stories leaked, Jeremy Piven’s story also found it’s way onto social media and very quickly to the press which doesn’t spare any time in dissemination. For so long many of these movies, series, dramas, produced by Hollywood, Nollywood, Bollywood and other production houses have led many innocent people away from God into living unrighteous and ungodly lives. 


Movies and Television have become a powerful tool in which the devil ensnares people’s minds, souls, spirits, hearts and bodies. I know some people will say that Kevin Spacey will bounce back like Ellen Degeneres did when she first came out many years ago.Maybe he will. Maybe he won’t. I don’t know.That is not my call. But I’m certain of one thing though.


God detests sexual immorality of any kind.Yes our world today glorifies sex and immorality but the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has never changed his mind about sexual purity and living lives of Holiness. In the Old testament, the Books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy offer great insights into these truths. Further more in the New Testament, Apostle Paul writes this.


Run from sexual immorality! “Every sin a person can commit is outside the body.” On the contrary, the person who is sexually immoral sins against his own body. 19 Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20


I can only pray that this situation that has hit the lives of Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein and Jeremy Piven will not destroy their souls but that it will help them to come to a knowledge of the one true God who is able to heal us of all sin and is able to help us manage addictions and forgive us all our sins. When we seek him and truly repent, the Lord is willing and eager to cleanse us of all unrighteousness. The Psalmist beautifully puts it this way.


He will not always chide:
neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins;
nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heaven is high above the earth,
so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west,
so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pitieth his children,
so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.
14 For he knoweth our frame;
he remembereth that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass:
as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone;
and the place thereof shall know it no more.
17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him,
and his righteousness unto children’s children; 

Psalms 103:9-17


Believers also need to remember and understand that before anything manifests in the physical realm, it first starts in the spiritual realm.  Many believers have been praying for a spiritual revival.Many have been fasting and begging God to heal our land of the wickedness and sexual sin that has plunged it for decades. God seems to be answering though not in the ways that many people expect. 


Therefore these are my questions: 

1. Who is next on the List? I feel just like there is hierarchy in any any earthly Kingdom, the Kingdom of the devil also has hierarchy. 

2. What lead a member of the Kingdom of Satan who has been massively rewarded to be disgraced and made to lose everything? – Is it when he/her disobeys the devil? – Is it when the devil gets tired of using him/her? – Is it when they hear the voice of God to come to Jesus Christ?
