1 Timothy 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in latter times some people will turn away from the faith. They will pay attention to spirits that deceive and to the teaching of demons.
1 Timothy 4:1 AMP But the [Holy] Spirit distinctly and expressly declares that in latter times some will turn away from the faith, giving attention to deluding and seducing spirits and doctrines that demons teach.
I walked around my neighborhood in a large city, I was amazed at how many homes did not display the U.S. flag. It was the 4th of July and there were only 4 flags displayed for blocks. The next day I heard that only 39% of Americans are happy they are Americans. The real statistic that was disturbing to me was that only 18% of 18–25-year-olds were proud to be an American. Some said that patriotism in America is considered a white thing and that America is not for anyone else. That is the education of our schools speaking. It is a lie, and it reinforces the idea that we are a racist country and because of that America should be dismantled.
Distortion, lies, deception, propaganda, and manipulation are all in play today. Without a true north moral compass, you are vulnerable to accepting all that is being said about America. In small towns, patriotism is alive and well. Parades, fireworks, fire trucks, flags, and hotdogs are all on full display in these communities. But, in my large metro community, we have no flags, no parades, and no fireworks to celebrate America’s Independence. Most of all the suburbs around our metropolitan city had all of the 4th of July activities … but not my city. Why bring up this topic and observation? Because it is another example of the robbing, stealing, and destruction that the devil is using to tear into America because he is a hater of God and all His influence in our world.
America has been in freefall for many decades, and it is now becoming more apparent to everyone that our country is at risk of losing its freedom, its Constitution, and the right to free speech. Recently, I was reading through the first two Chapters in the Book of Genesis where the creation story takes place. I realized that this narrative of creation is what is being challenged now in our society. People don’t want the restrictions of two genders, they must create their own versions … there are now 107 different sects of the gender debate. As non-binary people, we no longer need to be restricted to only two genders, yet without the two original genders, male and female, you will never create life. God made the genders to create, sustain, and maintain life here on earth, and without the sperm and the egg to create life, you will not maintain life on earth as God intended.
So, how does the doctrine of demons fit into all of this? The doctrine of demons is the narrative of what is happening in every American city. It begins by accusing and believing that America is only a white ideal, and all other people groups have no share in our history except for being the victims of the American way. Black Lives Matter (BLM) was not an organization for racial equality … it was and still is an organization to destroy the nuclear family and promote Marxism. This is the doctrine of demons. Our state governments have passed barbaric policies where we can have a baby go to full term and then simply allow it to die of starvation outside of the womb. In my opinion, there is no difference between the practice of abortion and the ovens of Auschwitz. No one yet has been able to clearly say these are different.
The doctrine of demons clearly has its most effective application in the way we think. People no longer think with a value on discernment or long-term effects, whether about the individual or about society. Look at the transgender movement/agenda where children who aren’t even eighteen years of age are encouraged to mutilate their bodies to become the other sex. Chromosomes can never be changed, so if you were born a woman, your basic human engineering will always be female. Science is completely ignored when we talk about the transgender movement … there is no discernment about the effects of gender transformation, but society, including our government officials, is not protecting people but encouraging this.
Most people don’t like when we identify anything that is happening in society as demonic, but that is what the Bible says will be the influencing factor in the last days. Recently, George Barna, Director of Research at ACU's Cultural Research Center, has stated that the Evangelical church is losing members, and the church has not recovered from the COVID-19 pandemic and the closing down of church life. The percentages of Americans are reading their Bibles less, and even abstaining from attending regular church services. The one thing that will keep us from accepting demon theology and practices is to fill our minds and hearts with God’s Word … it is the only thing that can help us fight against the spiritual decay in our country.
I write this blog today because what is happening to our country is not a coincidence. It is a targeted agenda from evil to rob, steal, and destroy God’s influence in our world. The doctrines of demons will infiltrate our government, our educational institutions, our entertainment, and our churches … nothing will be free from the influence of its teaching. Everything from racism, capitalism, white supremacy, sexual immorality, and the perversion of the sacred is all part of this scheme of evil. Most people today know our country is in trouble but they can’t figure out why and they struggle to blame some politician or party, but what I shared with you today is the reason. The doctrine of demons has been accepted and implemented in most sectors of society.
Our voices must be heard, and those voices must have a root base found in God’s Word. The gates of hell will not overcome His Word or those who practice it and believe in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Our great need is not more revelation from God … it is to have our will transformed by God to preach the revelation we have received, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and push back on the evil that prohibits it. Remember, you are living in the era when the Doctrine of Demons is ruling this present world. You must equip yourself to resist, based on the truth of God’s Word, and be determined not to retreat from this present age. It may be the last time God is granting a reprieve from His judgment so all will come to know the grace of God in Jesus Christ.
