Atheist Denies Faith as Reality: A response to Satan…

A demonically-deceived atheist on FB stated: “Atheist and theist how do you define faith? Do you think faith is reasonable or reliable? I define faith as: the reason people give when they have no good reason to provide. So obviously, I do not find faith to be reasonable or reliable.”

A Christian response to Satan’s emissary…

Christian faith is observing the evidence in Nature i.e. the Universe, the Earth, the complex human genome, and coming to the conclusion that design is in-play; therefore, a Designer is mandated (Romans 1:18-32).

The honest seeker pursues the Name or identity of this Designer and notes that Evolution (historical science); Applied Science; Islam; Buddhism and a sundry of worldviews, ideologies, have no answer/no clue. The honest seeker then searches the pages of the most profound, best-selling Book in the history of mankind and finds that the Holy Bible/“Christianity is the only coherent worldview with corresponding truth that defines origin-meaning-morality-destiny and directly answers with logical consistency, empirical adequacy, experiential relevance.” (Ravi Zacharias)

As the avid seeker reads through Scripture, a change in attitude-worldview-understanding-faith begins to manifest and as the avid-seeker continues to read and study the Bible (2 Timothy 2:15), the original languages, they find Jesus Christ-Yeshua to be irrefutably God-Creator-Lord-Intercessor-Messiah-Truth-Judge (Philippians 2:8).

The avid-seeker, in faith, reaches out to God the Father and finds a whole new life in Jesus Christ and then something absolutely miraculous manifests; the avid-seeker finds that God the Holy Spirit has taken-up residence within them (Ephesians 1:13) and the World is seen from a radically new perspective…the old life of narcissism, insatiable lust, has passed away and everything has become new and vibrant and understandable…peace and contentment begin to manifest and joy is abundant as a resultant of faith (2 Corinthians 5:17; Romans 5:1). Though life’s challenges remain, the person possessing the Holy Spirit becomes more than victorious over the death and deception and challenges of this temporary life constrained by Time (Romans 8:37).

With Jesus as Lord, there is intuitive knowledge and awareness that all is well and contentment reigns supreme.

If one desires to know God, if one searches for God with their whole heart via faith, God will reveal himself to this person and God the Holy Spirit will enter their personal life and give them a new life that is infinitely superior to the life lived pursuing the desires of the flesh which leads to death of the body in sin and death of the soul in Hell (Jeremiah 29:12-14; John 14:23; Galatians 6:7-8).

Did Evolution Create God?

A demonically deceived atheist in a FB forum stated that “the human brain has evolved to believe in Gods.” Is this servant of Satan correct?

A response to Satan’s emissary…

God created the human brain to worship Him and commune with Him forever (Genesis 1:26-28). It is the fool of Darwin’s hoax and Satan’s deceit (Psalm 14:1; Proverbs 1:7) that suggests the human genome and our Universe is the product of Time + Chance + Matter (Colossians 2:8). Those who suggest evolution is the answer to life’s mysteries are either fools, brainwashed, mentally ill.

Every human being has a God-shaped vacuum in their spirit as they are created in the spiritual image of the Living God and nothing/no one will adequately fill that vacuum except a relationship with God the Father by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and the indwelling Holy Spirit. It is the spiritually ignorant and rebellious that seeks to fill that God-shaped vacuum with sexual immorality, narcotics, risk-taking, narcissism, hedonism, moral relativism, all of which suffer from “diminishing returns” and leave the self-deceived victim spiritually dead-empty-addicted-hurting-lost in confusion and self loathing, seeking self destruction. This is the resultant of compromise with Satan.

Human KIND is programmed to search for God as God has provided extant, empirical, irrefutable evidence for His existence, His reality, His power and dominion by what He has made in Nature and placed before our eyes both daily and nightly; therefore, anyone who foolishly denies what is before them in reality is a liar, is self-deceived and “without excuse” when they stand before Jesus Christ-Yeshua in the Judgment of the Condemned in Eternity (Romans 1:18-32).

Does Demonic Possession Exist Today?

A question was asked in a FB forum: “Do you think demonic possession exists today?”

Christian response to this intriguing question…

A brief history…

Lucifer’s (Satan-the Devil) deception was initiated in Eternity before the creation of Time (Ezekiel 28:11-19; Isaiah 14:12-15; Revelation 12:7-9) and Lucifer-Satan was removed from the Kingdom of God (Luke 10:18) as God chose to deal with this rebellious angel apart from the Kingdom in order to negate the destructiveness of sin within God’s Kingdom where nothing impure is permitted to enter (Revelation 21:27). As opposed to eradicating Lucifer and the rebellious angels (demons) who supported Lucifer in his coup de taut to usurp God’s authority, God the Son, Jesus Christ-Yeshua, was commissioned to take elements from the Spiritual World and fashion same into matter that is interactive within the Realm of Time (Hebrews 11:3) thereby creating all things that are visible and invisible and constraining this matter by the laws of physics-Time (Gospel of John 1; Colossians 1:15-18; Genesis 1). God the Father set-forth a Plan called “The Gospel” before the beginning of Time and this Plan was dedicated to destroying the works of Satan and redeeming all of creation by selfless love and sacrifice that God Himself would provide, alone (1 John 3:8; 2 Timothy 1:10).

God the Father deemed the extrication of Lucifer from the Kingdom as necessary in order to prevent additional destruction from iniquity and to maintain volitional love with the remaining angelic creation that was and is observing God’s response to sin – rebellion. God placed Lucifer-Satan and the rebellious angels-demons on the Earth and the cosmic struggle between Yeshua-Jesus v. Satan via mankind was first initiated in The Garden of Eden and that cosmic war continues to this very day as God is demonstrating to His faithful angelic creation the horror of sin and why same cannot be permitted to exist in the Kingdom of God (1 John 3:8; Genesis 3:15; Matthew 4:1-11; 1 Peter 1:12; Revelation 20:27). Though Yeshua was victorious over Lucifer-Satan via the Crucifixion, God is presently using Satan to separate the sheep from the goats, the wheat from the chaff, the faithful from the unfaithful, and Satan has been put on a short leash and is performing God’s will unaware (Matthew 3:12; Matthew 25:31-46; Colossians 2:13-15).

Examples of demonic possession and demonic persuasion in today’s World?

1) Every atheist-satanist-nihilist-naturalist that claims the facade of atheism-unbelief in our Creator is demonically possessed or heavily persuaded demonically as they seek the death of their body in sin and the death of their body-soul in Hell. Every atheist-unbeliever is a servant and emissary of Satan within the Realm of Time and does his bidding unaware (John 8:44; Ephesians 2:1-3; Romans 1:18-32).

2) Every human adult that advocates for the mutilation of babies in the womb does so by demonic persuasion or possession (John 8:44). Abortion is clearly murder as abortion is the taking of human life void due process and it is the father of murder, Satan, that inspires advocacy for the mutilation of children. God hates hands that shed innocent blood (Proverbs 6:17).

3) Every child and every adult that participates in or advocates for sexual perversion i.e. homosexuality – lesbianism – transsexualism – bisexuality – adultery – fornication – pedophilia does so at the behest of Satan or his demonic forces in the Spiritual World. Sexual immorality is not only sin against God’s Covenant of Marriage and holiness but sexual immorality is sin against one’s own body and without repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Lord for the mediation of sin, those who engage in sexual immorality will suffer death in Hell (1 Corinthians 6:9-20). Death and Hell; this is Satan’s desire for all of humanity via his deception (Genesis 3:13; Revelation 12:9).

4) Every incident of antisemitic behavior throughout the World is directly related to Satanic influence or demonic possession. Satan HATES the children of Israel and Christians. The Jewish-Israeli people are God’s chosen and they are God’s eschatological time-clock e.g. if anyone desires to know where our God is positioned concerning the destiny of Time, the World, Eternity and the 2nd-Advent of Messiah-Yeshua and His coming Millennial Reign upon the Earth, God the Father tells mankind to watch MY PEOPLE – the Children of Israel.

Subsequent to the fall of Jerusalem in 70AD, God’s time-clock concerning eschatological events was stopped until the reestablishment of the Nation of Israel in 1948 and the capture of Jerusalem by the Israeli armies in 1967 (Six-Day War). From that point forward, eschatology is moving at a rapid pace and Satan is aware of this truism and he is exceptionally busy in these last days (Revelation 12:12). Satan will stop at nothing to eradicate the children of Israel (Jacob) and nullify God’s promises to them via an everlasting Covenant (Jeremiah 32:38; Genesis 12:3). Ninety-thousand Christians were murdered as well in 2016 and Satan burns with anger at those redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ-Yeshua!

5) The destruction of the Biblical family unit through obsessions with sexual perversion/same-sex unions (LGBTQ); drug addiction; secularism; hedonism; environmentalism; sexually transmitted diseases; these are the work of Satan as Satan strategically desires the eradication of the Biblical family unit which is the bedrock of any sustainable society (Ephesians 6:4; Proverbs 22:6).

6) Satan’s most successful strategy in History has been the infusion of Darwinian Evolutionary Theory into public schools; Evolution being the most profound progenitor of atheistic thought in the history of mankind. Darwinism infused into public schools as early as 1963 is purely demonic as Satan has used men like Progressive, John Dewey (1900), President Woodrow Wilson to incrementally and methodically infuse historical revisionism, Darwinism, Socialism, into America’s mainstream via the brainwashing of millions of American youth via Darwin’s hoax i.e. Evolutionary Theory, the greatest lie ever told by science which is Satan’s attempt to negate the Genesis creation narrative and construct a naturalist, godless, moral-less, hedonistic, society of demonically possessed-persuaded atheists-hedonists-secularists-nihilists-moral relativists-naturalists which are found in overwhelming numbers within the modern-day Progressive-Socialist-Democrat Party of Satan in American politics.

Today, approximately one-half of the American populous radically advocates for the mutilation of babies in the womb; vile and vulgar sexual perversion destroying our posterity; socialism-communism which is the demonic construct of atheists-hedonists-the mentally ill seeking to destroy America’s Constitutional Republic. Satan is working overtime in America and in American politics and he’s gaining popularity via atheism-secularism-progressive socialism-naturalism/evolution!

7) Satan has visibly introduced himself to the World via the adulterous affair of the iconic Biblical figures of Abraham and Hagar manifesting in the illegitimate birth of Ishmael who is the father of the Ishmaelites who is the progenitor of the Arabic tribes who is the progenitor of Muhammad who is the progenitor of Islam. Satan laid claim to the Arabic Moon god – Allah and for 1400-yrs Satan-Allah has murdered-butchered some 270-million non-Muslims via the Islamic Caliphate.

Satan-Allah is at work around the World with an emphasis in America and American politics as he plans to destroy the Nation of Israel and the Israeli people which will be the initiation of a nuclear war in Jerusalem, Israel. Allah will ally with Iran-Russia-China-an Arab coalition to attack Jerusalem in the coming days and this will initiate the Apocalypse and the 2nd-Advent of Messiah-Yeshua and His Millennial Kingdom which will be headquartered in Jerusalem, Israel. MARANATHA!


Satan is alive and well and is more active today than during Noah’s or Lot’s generation and it is wise for every Christian to know their spiritual enemy i.e. Satan and Satan’s emissaries.

Jesus has warned you…

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Matthew 7:15-20 (NKJV)

The Holy Spirit has warned you…

“Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 (NASB)

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:10-17 (NASB)

Socialists-Sodomites-Abortionists-Atheists have no place in Government!

Socialists-Sodomites-Abortionists-Atheists have NO Place in American Government!

The 2020 Democrat-Socialist Platform is an embarrassment to God and common decency. The core tenets of America’s Constitutional Republic cannot be sustained when leadership espouses the works of Satan as public policy.  America’s Constitutional Republic, its founding documents, are based on freedom and liberty for the people and by the people. This freedom and liberty is under girded by the construction of a very limited federal government carefully enshrined and monitored by checks and balances and power that is divided among equal branches of government responsibility and government oversight through a representative democracy.

Our Founders knew that the success of a limited, non-intrusive, government that maximized the freedom of the American people depended wholly upon an overwhelming number of citizens possessing a heart that was redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ as Lord; hence, a Church on almost every street corner in early American municipalities. It is Jesus Christ as Lord and the indwelling Holy Spirit that would guide men and women to pursue personal lives dedicated to honoring the Word of God and living lives of dignity, morality, peace, ethics, love for God, love for family, love for country – Patriots. Our Founders knew that unless Jesus was Lord in the lives of the majority, there would be insufficient numbers of police-prosecutors-judges-penal institutions to maintain peace and order and domestic tranquility for the common welfare of the whole. Today, America no longer seeks the wisdom of Jesus Christ but America seeks the Satanic ideology of “moral relativism” via Socialists, Sodomites, Abortionists, Atheists; therefore, America is dying in apostasy because America has rejected Her first Love, Jesus Christ as Lord, Sustainer, King.


Socialism is the foundational positioning of the Progressive Socialist candidate vying for the White House in 2020. Socialism has failed in every instance it has been tried throughout history. Every socialist traitor running for public office and every socialist traitor that “claims” the title of American defecates on the grave of every man and woman whose has fought and died to defend America’s Constitutional Republic from the horrors of Leninism-Marxism.


Any man or woman lacking the willingness or moral capacity to understand basic human sexual physiology is not psychologically or morally fit for public office. Any man or woman willing to spit in the face of our Creator’s Covenant of Marriage between one-man/one-woman becoming one-flesh for life does not possess the moral capacity to lead a Nation whose very existence depends on obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ.


Any man or woman who espouses the mutilation of babies in the womb is a criminal, is morally bankrupt, psychologically ill and is unfit to hold any position of leadership in Government in any capacity as representing the people of the United States.


Any man or woman who lies to God, who lies to them self, who lies to their fellowman, concerning the necessity for our Creator is unfit for public office. Any man or woman lacking the cognitive acuity to discern design in our Universe thus mandating a Designer, is unfit for public office as a representative of the American people.


America has gone the way of Sodom and America will reap what She has sown and it will be America’s posterity that suffers to the greatest degree because America has rejected Her King, Jesus Christ, and sought the whore of infidelity, Satan.

Will God Save America from Progressive Socialism if the Faithful Pray?

Will God intercede on behalf of the faithful in America and save this once great Nation from death in Progressive-Socialism-Atheism?

Facebook Comment suggested: “Body of Christ in this nation after you have done this: [2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.] Then this coming election it will be up to you as to the destiny of this nation whether we be a nation of the god of this world or the only true God the father of Jesus Christ our Lord…”

A reminder to those who love Jesus Christ and seek to honor God the Father in these last days…

When citing God’s words concerning His promises, far too many forget that God’s Covenants were and are contingent upon His people’s “obedience.” (Deuteronomy 28) America is dying in apostasy because we have rejected our first love and the Founder, Sustainer, of our Constitutional Republic, Jesus Christ-Yeshua.

When America kicked Jesus out of our public schools in SCOTUS decisions like Engel v. Vitale (1962) and subsequently infused Darwin’s demonic theory of evolution into the minds of our posterity beginning in 1963, America began a path down a slippery slope of no return in rebellion to our God, Jesus Christ via Atheism-Naturalism-Secularism-Moral Relativism-Socialism.

Today, America is a bastion of vile and perverse Atheists, men and women who fight for the right to mutilate babies in the womb via Roe/73 with some 61-millions babies slaughtered since 1973 (Proverbs 6:17); men and women who fight to engage in every form of unconscionable sexual perversion and celebrate same in our streets and force same upon our children without shame…they have forgotten how to blush; men and women who are spiritually dead and historically ignorant and clamor for the infusion of Leninism-Socialism-Marxism in America; a demonic ideology responsible for the death of 100-million people in the previous 100-years.

God the Father has turned away from America in shame and brokenheartedness and taken His Gospel to other Nations who will honor and respect His Son, Jesus Christ, and His suffering/death for the remission of sin.

Don’t pray for America, pray for your children, your spouse, your extended family, that they indeed know Jesus as Lord because God’s wrath is at the door and America will rot from within in its immorality and shedding of innocent blood and die a horrific death in the bile of Atheism-Secularism-Progressive Socialism.

Atheism: The Insolent Child

Atheism: The Insolent Child – An Analogy

The radicalized, modern-day, Atheist is analogous to a seven-year-old narcissistic, spoiled, brattish, child whose aberrant desires/personal will is stymied by his loving father – a father who is consumed with love, care and concern for his child’s destiny; in response, the brattish child internalizes hatred and consuming anger for his father and denies his father’s authority and dominion over said child’s life.

This arrogant-foolish child, denying irrefutable evidence to the contrary, goes as far as to deny his father’s existence. This brattish child, in defiant pursuit of his aberrant lust, impugns his loving father’s character in the public square, on the playground of fools, seeking like-minded narcissistic brats to further impugn the character, authority, of their own father via salacious stories of ineptitude and impotency in order to justify their pursuit of carnality and sensuality void restraint of the moral law.

In Time, this brattish child and his demonic cohorts never mature emotionally or spiritually and their defiled body of flesh ultimately dies away and it’s at the moment of death that the insolent child realizes that he has forfeited the greatest love known to creation, the love of his precious father who has given his all for his wayward/prodigal child that never returned home where love, knowledge, wisdom, contentment, awaited patiently.

This is the simplistic overview of the façade of Atheism that is consuming the youth, Millennial’s and Gen-Z Generations, and spiritually-ignorant and spiritually-dead Boomer-generation in America and around the World in the 21st-Century.

Atheism does not exist except in the mind and soul of the sodomite, the child-mutilator, the Progressive-Socialist, the foolish self-intellectualized philosopher, logician, evolutionist, seeking to ingratiate their flesh in obsessive obedience to the will of Satan and his demonic minions. Atheism is Satan’s most subtle yet deadly tool that is effectively destroying America’s posterity and crumbling America’s foundation that was securely based on the bedrock of Jesus Christ as Lord for over 200-years.

Much like the brattish child at death, America will look back at this generation of Progressive-Socialist-Democrats and wonder how it was that the Patriots, those who truly love America, permitted godless child murderers, sodomites, atheistic socialists, to infiltrate our Government, the voting booth and destroy the greatest Nation God has given mankind i.e. The United States of America.

atheism - spoiled child screaming that daddy does not exist

Why was Jesus necessary?

Jesus was necessary because mankind, as a result of Adam’s sin/disobedience, fell under the curse of sin as children of Adam. Our sin created a chasm, a divide, between mankind and God because our God is perfect holiness, righteousness, justice, and God will not permit sin to dwell in His Kingdom and God will not permit sin to go unpunished and without judgment (Revelation 21:27; Ecclesiastes 12:14); therefore, without a Mediator for our sin, mankind has no hope of life in Eternity but only death in sin and death in Hell (Acts 4:12).

As a result of our sin, we enter the World spiritually dead (Ephesians 2:1; Colossians 2:13) and our bodies also die physiologically/physically because of sin (Romans 6:23; 1 Corinthians 15:22). God the Father, to indicate how serious sin actually is, mandated that ONLY sinless, perfect, blood would be acceptable as payment for sin (Leviticus 17:11); unfortunately, the blood of animals could NOT take away sin (Hebrews 10:4-6); therefore, God Himself left eternity and entered Time through the womb of a virgin (Philippians 2:8; Matthew 1:23). It was necessary that Jesus be born of a virgin in order to avoid the seed of Adam through Joseph, because it is the seed of Adam, the man, that transmits the sin-nature to all of mankind (1 Corinthians 15:22).

Jesus is the ONLY One who is both “sinless” and therefore “acceptable” to God the Father as a sacrifice for sin; for this reason, God gave His only Son to die in our place so that we could receive Jesus’ perfection, His righteousness over our life and by doing so, we can find forgiveness of sin and life in Eternity with God the Father (2 Corinthians 5:21). Without Jesus as our Lord and Mediator for sin, mankind has no hope of life in God’s Kingdom (John 8:24).

How can one receive forgiveness of sin and life in Eternity with God the Father?

It is by repenting of our sin (turning away from wilful sin) (Acts 17:30), believing in our heart, confessing with our mouth that Jesus is God who died to pay our sin-debt and that He was resurrected for our justification…it is by believing and confessing Jesus as our Lord that we find righteousness (a right standing) with God the Father through the forgiveness of sin (Romans 10:9-10; Romans 10:13; Acts 2:21). There is no other way to find forgiveness of sin and life with God the Father but through faith in Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior; no one else was qualified to pay the price for our sins but Jesus Christ, alone (John 14:6).
