The Dark Knight massacre reminds me of the Zombie Attack incident I shared last May 2012 (see Zombie in Miami)... It's another unusual case of delusion where a person thinks he is somebody else. Unlike other kind of possession, this type is the most dangerous because it aims to hurt others. The Exorcist type is about self-destruction while this type of neurological malfunctions is somewhat similar to a Poltergeist...
Medical science may want us to accept that these attack was an abnormalities on the person'd brain functions. People are sometimes afraid to associate everything to the spiritual when this kind of tragedy happens.
Fact is out of the hundreds or even millions of people who had watched Batman before, no one had ever claim he is Joker and then start shooting every body. Except this one guy. To blame it on any violent movies does not hold ground. Generally, a movie goer would identify himself with the heroes and heroine...so perhaps, it would have been correct if he claimed to be Batman?
Another point is, perhaps the movie industry should be more cautious in making movies... Yet, we've seen far greater brutally in Mel Gibson's Passion of Christ but received a more positive reactions to a person's feeling.
I'm just trying to equate the matter here, about subliminal influences here of movies or other media...For me, this is a personal crime, not associated to the movie at all, even if the killer directly claims it to be. The act is pure mind control and demonic possession. Or this could be another weaponized propaganda to push gun control? Is it orchestrated after all?
18 to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ --Acts 26:18 (ESV)
Christianity is not blind faith...it's not just following every spirits we feel but also investigating whether certain spiritual experiences is a genuine manifestation of the Holy Ghost.
How many times we've seen certain individual claiming to have received the Holy Spirit but were actually experiencing the works of "another" spirits. Remember also that, Satan is also called as angel of light so it's not unusual for him to sometimes do little good works but were actually for his evil purpose...
Ephesians 6:12 (ESV)
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Get in touch with reality...
When we hear these kind of incident, the media is quick to say that a person probably had mental illness, which is scientifically correct but one must not forget that the Prince of the Air is always on the look out for an opportunity to destroy mankind.
A believer must be able to differentiate what is from God and what is not.
Although we are told to get in touch to the Spiritual, we must also never detach ourselves with Reality.We are not yet there, we will one day, but not at the moment.
Testing the spirit requires logic, science, and reason. We need these elements to see if these spirits are from God or not. Contrary to popular belief; The Holy Bible is not against science, reason, and logic. The sad thing is, these powerful tools are used to distort Reality. Intellect should never be used to create gods nor to invent a system of morality.
What does the devil knew in the Garden of Eden, that Eve was not aware of?
Eve was not aware of her true nature…she’s not god or will ever be a god. She taught she can also evolve into a god if she ate the tree of knowledge. Knowledge is not enough to make man to become god. But that’s what New Age Religion is teaching us nowadays, that we can discover the god within us. The issue is already address right from the very beginning…in Eden man and woman learned it the hard way…that they can never be like God or even a minor gods, if there is such a thing.
Satan had been usurping that position of Godhead ever since…but was expelled immediately from heaven even just by the mere ambitions. It was the devil delusion to be god and that is how he tried to persuade one third of the angel on his side…now the esoteric agenda is telling us that if we center ourselves to the divine cosmic energy abundant in nature or in the whole universe we can achieve that state also of becoming part of God or be gods as well.
Do you think a government will survive if everyone think he or she is the President?
Esoteric agenda or Satanism is also trying to inculcate in our mind that all humans had an innate goodness in them therefore all we have to do, is be connected to that Spiritual “good” Self and we become Holy as well. No doubt, and I don’t disagree that we should be holy as God is holy…but to think that we can light the whole world in our own spark or understanding is a devilish manipulation. Discovering a person's divine nature, is not enough, or even near to make him a god.
We need Jesus as the only way. Not the guru way, not the Dalai Lama way, not thru fine tuning of chi or chakra….there is only one way. There is only one truth. There is only one life.
Most readers of this blog think that Satan and demons does not exist. If they do, it’s often believed that Satan is not that powerful to influence every aspect of our lives, religion and faith included.
J.W. Montgomery in Principalities and Powers, written after years of research into the existence of demons, concluded, "The problem involved in determining whether demon possession occurs and whether witchcraft works is absurdly simple. The documentation is overwhelming."
The visible manifestation of a devil is the human behavior. There are some humans who are very brutal that we sometime label their action as “inhuman” because they display character that surpasses even all the detestable thing an animal had ever done.
So where does this human cruelty came from? Some humans are so evil they self-destruct. Simple logic will tell us that these evil people are Demon possess. A reasonable atheist will have to agree that these people are evil. .
The Coming Anti-Christ
The Buddhists are looking for a Lord Maitreya (the fifth Buddha) to return. Some of the Jews are looking for a Messiah, and the Shiite Muslims are looking for Imman Madhi. The Hindus are expecting the Bodhisattva (Kalki) or Krishna.
Great expense and great plans are to be used to convince the world of his divinity. The Establishment media is ready to be used for promoting Lord Maitreya. A number of indicators seemed to indicated that the new messiah would have a Jewish Lineage of the House of David.
He will proclaim himself as the Sole Representative of God on Earth. He will destroy the barrier of religion and shall proclaim One world religion… it will seems to work for a time but in the end...
We must test every religious leader that proclaims salvations by being member with them…How do we measure them? Of course, thru the Word of God and as I’ve said, with the use of logic, science, and reasons. Anything that does not jive with The Bible should be scrutinized.
It’s not logical to believe in God and yet ignores the Bible. Yet, many believers are like that…They think the Bible is incomplete, mysterious and can’t be understood by ordinary church-goers. That’s ridiculous and sacrilegious…it’s like accusing God of being irresponsible…who have left us groping in the dark. Would a loving Father neglect to instruct us how to survive in this world? Would He intentionally confuse mankind?
Confusion does not come from God.
Galatians 5:19-21New International Version (NIV)
19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality,impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
REPENT! Be baptized in the name of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.
