Satanic Diversions (Ephesians 5:13-21)

See the source image

On June 6th, 1944, the Allies by the United States, landed on five separate beaches of Normandy France. The D-Day invasion, although hard fought with high casualties among both Allied and German forces, was considered a success, The success was not without significant pre-military planning and one of the older military tricks in the books. Without these tactics, the D-Day invasion would certainly have been disastrous.

The tactics to which I am referring are the use of distraction and diversion.

Prior to the invasion, the Allied forces flooded German spy networks and eavesdroppers with information on an invasion force landing somewhere other than Normandy in the North and Calais in the South. Genuine Allied radio messages and media gave the impression that most of the invasion forces being stationed in Kent, gave the impression that the Allied invasion would occur at Calias.

In fact, the night before the D-Day invasion special forces dropped thousands of dummies, like paratroopers, to further the diversion of a Calias invasion point diverting attention from Allied warships massing in the North. Planes also dropped sheets of window foil to confuse German radar, as to another possible invasion location. By diverting the German’s attention, the distracted Germans were caught off guard and unprepared.

Why am I writing about WWII military tactics? Because Satan has been using DIVERSION to distract the Church for 2000 years and he has done it again, very effectively over the last two years.

While Christians worldwide have been agonizing over the risk of the Covid-19 virus and its variants, the potential for further Covid-19 restrictions, the safety of vaccines and possible mandates, and the massive amounts of true and false political and scientific information; we were distracted from an abominable massacre. Satan create a huge diversion to distract us so that our time, attention, ministry effort and prayer, would be devoted to what we considered an “existential threat” to personal civil liberties.

To be clear, those who truly follow the Lord Jesus Christ do not find “existential threats” all that distracting. When we live by faith in the promises of God afforded Christian… “absent from the body is present with the Lord” and “For me to live is Christ and to die is gain” and “For to you if has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake“; we do not allow ourselves to be panic attacked into distracted thinking (II Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:21, 29).

What is it that we missed? What is the abomination which took place over the last two years? Abortion is the leading cause of death for the second straight year and rising.

In a recent Christian Post article we read that while the world was worried about the death toll of Covid-19 and still is, over 42,600,000 children were butchered in the womb in 2020 (the 2021 total is not yet compiled). During that time Christians have been consumed in political fights concerning the virus, being called to prayer (at least in America) for protection from the virus, a return to civil liberties, and the election of political leaders more akin to our outlook. How many prayer rallies have been called for almost 1.5 million murdered babies in that same time period?

Consider how deceptive the delusion. In the United States alone there is a yearly average of 800,000 abortions. Even if we drop that number to the 2019 Calander year total of approximately 625,000, we arrive. By contrast Covid-19 has been reported to have taken over 845,000 lives in two years.

Recently the Centers for Disease Control admitted that 75% of the United States Covid deaths are among people who have four or more comorbidities. A comorbidity is the simultaneous presence of a serious diseases, which impacting the daily life of a person in adverse ways and exponentially increases the risk of early death.  This means that 75% of the 845,000 who died, did not die from covid; they died from having multiple pre-existing conditions that made them wildly unhealthy and more prone to death by diseases most others would survive.

When factoring out those who had 4 comorbidities or more, the 2-year death total in the U.S. is 211,250. When factoring that 75% in among world statistics it reduces the 5,500,000 number of deaths from Covid to 1,100,000. By way of comparison, if death aby abortion continues as it has the last two years (42.6 million in 2020 and 42.3 million in 2019), means upwards of 80,000,000 children will be wickedly and barbarously killed, in the same period.

What cause of death, ought to have a Christian appropriate Christian response?

Yes, all the death from Covid-19 is tragic and unnecessary, being it was intentionally released, but Covid-19 is satanic diversion, turning our attention to exploring worldly options to save our bacon. Satan has done with regard to how real or not abortion is too Christians over the years.

When is the last time you wept with burden over the exponentially outrageous death toll of abortion, in the last two years?

Consider this:

42,600,000 abortions world-wide in 2020 equates too…

  1. 116,712 dead unborn babies per day
  2. 4,863 dead unborn children per hour
  3. 81 dead unborn babies who fell pain per minute

A yearly average of 800,000 abortions in the United States equates too…

  1. 2191 murdered unborn babies per day
  2. 91 murdered unborn children per hour
  3. More than 1 unborn child slain per minute

Should we no weep, when regardless of what we are doing, every minute of our lives as many as 81 mothers choose to take the life of a child growing in their womb? Should we not grieve in repentance, at how easily we are distracted by silly diversions, which monopolize our attention and praying, when every minute of the day, the free-will choice given by God to live, is denied by cultures and societies of death? When is the last time you wept over the death of these little ones, or prayed for direction to reduce its massiveness where you live?

The problem of abortion is not just a last year problem. Abortion is a satanic middle finger at God, as men and woman in worship of Lucifer’s religion of “do what thou will”, destroy the image of God in those who cannot fight back or defend themselves.

Some will gloss over the sheer magnitude of the statistics, declaring we are living in the days before Christ’s return, which lends toward more wickedness and sexual immorality, therefore more abortions, as people believe “the lie” rather than the TRUTH. One may readily offer, we need to get more laws passed, but abortion, like Covid-19 restrictions and mandates, will never be taken care of through litigation.

The reason for this is the world system, controlled by Satan is about SELF. The teaching of this system is man is autonomous of God. Therefore, to a majority of men and woman, being made in the image of God is irrelevant. Being under a Darwinian notion, the world is a culture of the strong dominating the weak and anything infringing on “my truth” must be silenced, shut down or killed.

This is true of those who seek to kill and persecute Christians, suppress the truth in unrighteousness and those commit abortion. They have no love for God or life, because they do not know the Truth.

To abort a child for the purpose of getting rid of a “problem” infringing on the personal life plan the of mother and father, is to hold to “the lie”, which also keeps the wicked in high places; This is because abortion is a sacrifice to Satan and his plan of “Do what thou will”, which also makes billions for the butchers who perform these abominable acts.

Legislation will not fix abortion or the distraction of Covid-19, nor will violence against those who practice murder of the unborn or those who seek to suppress the truth in unrighteousness, through campaigns of false science or draconian restrictions.

Only bringing people to Christ will change the heart, where the heart and will are opened to the sacredness of life to the God who alone gives life. Being active in His Great Commandment and Great Commission will not end abortion or any other wickedness in the world (which will wax worse as we near Christ’s return), but it may bring more than a few to forgiveness and reconciliation with God.

How can we turn the tide, when Christian’s are so afraid of losing their right to go where they want and do what they want to do, that they can barely pray for their lost neighbors, let alone engage in giving the word of God to those who need their conscience awakened to God? The simple answer is we cannot, unless we turn our eyes away from satanic diversions, intended to stop the work of making disciples for Christ.

We had better wake up, because while we are looking at the diversion, Satan is busy making more hearts and minds calloused to life and intolerable towards those who live with resurrection life. To live without an awareness of or care concerning the death of 42,600,000 babies, will only grow the intolerability of the lost toward those who live in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Let us pray and speak up for the little ones, calling mothers and fathers to choose life and freedom in Christ. Let stop worrying about what we are losing in the way of rights and live free in Christ, regardless of who is against us, or what they can concoct to silence us. Then we will discern satanic distractions, and then empowered by the Holy Spirit we will make an eternal difference.

(Ephesians 5:13-21) But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:

“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God.

May God grant us wisdom and discernment, that we would never again fall to satanic diversions and that we may continually be attuned to the Holy Spirit, for the purpose of calling others out of darkness and into His marvelous light.

Abortion is leading cause of death worldwide for third year in a row
