This post is a follow up or continuation of the previous one on: “Why cleverly calculated evil acts and killings are not mere innocent acts of insanity or a mental disorder”, and it would be good to read that first if you haven’t done so already. According to the definition in the Webster English Dictionary the word “Observe” means: to take note of what’s happening, to pay attention to something, to watch carefully especially with attention to details or behavior for the purpose of arriving at a judgment, to come to realize or know through consideration of noted facts, or to expertly analyze a particular field.
“Observe” means to come to realize or know through consideration of noted facts, or to take note of what’s happening
That is what I did in the previous article or post. I invited all readers to check every scripture or book I listed in the article to prove to themselves that what was being discussed was recorded and accurate history. Starting from the very beginning of human creation I showed from the only historical and inspired Book from God himself, the Bible as to how and why we the human race got into this mess, how evil began, why it is increasing more so now than ever before. Why the world today is in so much turmoil and chaos, why so much human suffering, and who is behind it all – the conclusion leading to the great Manslayer, Satan the Devil along with his rebellious evil angels or demons.
Also how God was progressively preparing for the Messiah, Deliverer or Savior to be born that will be the one to put the Devil and his demons out of existence and restore human perfection and peace to this earth again. Every single detail about him was foretold and fulfilled up to our day, and just a few more yet to come in the near future. According to the sign he gave about conditions getting worst on earth this Messiah Jesus Christ is already ruling in God’s Kingdom and ready to put Satan and his demons out of existence.
This also means that the restoration work to human perfection and returning the Earth to its peaceful Paradise like conditions, will soon take place. But in the meantime we don’t know how many more terror attacks or mass shootings will take place before that comes. So there is the need to be always on guard, to be very observant where ever we go.
The motto is: If you see something, say something, I will add if you see or hear something run for your life, then say something!
Yes, always be prepared to run if you can. Even if think you can’t when scared it seems like God gives us wings attached to our feet. We fly on ground. I experienced this myself, last year on Labor Day I was standing in the crowd among thousands of people on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn New York looking at the West Indian Day Parade. I went more so for the enjoyment of the music which I love.
Suddenly I heard a gun shot, without thinking or trying to find out if it really was, I just started running in the direction away from the crowd. I was flying on my feet, and I didn’t stop until I was far away from that crowd. I even didn’t know where I was when I stopped running and had to find the nearest subway to get back home. Later that night I saw on the news several people had indeed gotten shot around the same area where I was standing. Some people just stuck around to see what was happening, putting themselves in danger to be hit by a stray bullet if not directly.
In this age of terror we have to always pay attention to anybody that even looks a bit strange, anything however small it might be such as an empty can or bottle just lying around on the floor or on a seat. People with unusual bags or hats or whatever they may be carrying. I learned again through personal experience that these days, even those we least expect could be dangerous.
What does the face of a killer looks like?
There is no way we can tell by the faces of people, who a killer could be. A lot of killers have turned out to be quite attractive and even innocent looking. Remember Satan and the demons were once good angels, no doubt beautiful when materialized in human bodies. Their becoming evil had nothing to do with their looks but their personalities, a corruption of their hearts.
So some people can be very good looking and still be possessed by evil or even develop an evil heart. About 5 years ago I had to run out to the grocery store two blocks away from where I lived because I needed something to add to my lunch I was preparing. I came down my elevator and when I opened the door into the building lobby, I saw a well dressed, clean shaven young man walking slowly toward the elevators.
I briefly greeted him as I was leaving, he responded with like and then asked me where the Super of the building was. Thinking he lived in the building, I told him probably in the basement since it was about 11:30 am in the morning and he is usually still working downstairs, and he calmly walked into the elevator. I noticed he was carrying a brown paper bag rolled up under his arm. I thought nothing about it because he looked like a regular young man with a bulgy newspaper in a bag under his arm and looking for the Super. Must be having problems with his apartment I thought. Twenty to thirty minutes when I came back home I couldn’t get into my building.
Who would have suspected that a man carrying an innocent brown paper bag under his arm was carrying a gun prepared to kill another human being?
It was surrounded by police cars, an ambulance and newspapers and TV news men. I was surprised but not knowing what was going on I tried to go into my building and was stopped by two police officers. “You can’t go in there Ma’am, a man was just shot dead and his body is still lying in front of the elevator. Until the body is removed no one is allowed to enter and come out of the building”. I was shocked, I saw the Super standing outside with everyone else and asked him exactly what happened.
He told me a man came down to the basement asking for another tenant’s apt# referring to him by name and as a friend, so he gave it to him. Then later discovered that this young man had killed the same guy from the apt. that was given to him. The same young man with the paper bag rolled up under his arm that I had talked to about thirty minutes earlier was the killer and had gotten away after shooting the other guy.
The brown bag he was carrying under his arm was hiding his gun that he used to shoot the guy. Even though it was obvious that he came there specifically to kill the guy that he knew, just imagine what could have happened if I had come down that elevator at the same time the guy he killed did.
The man whom he shot ran into the elevator from the third floor and the killer ran down the stairs and shot him as he exited the elevator, dying right in front of it, the same one I had exited myself a half hour earlier, and briefly talked to the killer not knowing what he was up to. Anyone else could have gotten shot if they had been exiting at the same time.
That incident had me shaken up for months after as the police detectives came to my apartment and questioned me about my conversation with this killer since they could see me talking to him from the surveillance cameras. Then I had to go down to the local precinct several times and tried to identify criminals from a group of mug shots of faces. It was just like what you see on the TV Show “Law & Order”. I couldn’t remember exactly every detail of his face since he looked like a nice young man, all I remembered was that he had long hair pulled back in a braid, with this brown bag under his arm.
So I never did find out if he was ever caught or not. I was looking over my shoulders for months after so afraid this guy would show up again and get me. My mother advised me to move somewhere else. Who would have thought that the brown paper bag under his arm was a gun prepared to kill another man in broad daylight at high noon? And I had come face to face with a cold blooded killer and didn’t know it. So I have learned to observe everything around me in these dangerous times ever since.
What should we do to survive if caught in a terror attack or a mass shooting?
But since Evil can strike anywhere at anytime we can be caught in a place when terrorism or a mass shooting occurs. Since we know now that Satan and his demons are aiming at killing masses of people at a time, whenever going to any event where there is going to be a crowd of people the authorities need to step up Police Protection. And all of us need to do as they ask us to do, keep our eyes, ears and sense of smell open. I will offer some of my own common sense suggestions, I didn’t get these from anywhere else, but just seem to be the wise things to do in case of danger.
It is always good to check out your environment beforehand where you could run in case there is a terrorist attack or a shooting. If in a open area among a crowd of people look around to see if there are any side alleys, walls that you could hide behind, buildings that you could run into and hide, or a road that leads to somewhere that you could get help. Run in a stooped over zigzag manner so that if anyone is shooting or throwing weapons from behind you it is easier for them to miss those that are running bent over and not in a straight line.
If indoors in your own home and you hear gun shots or shouting outdoors don’t poke your head out or stand in front of a window or door. Many people have gotten killed by stray bullets, trying to see what is going on outdoors. Stay far away from any doors or windows, if possible lie down on the floor, call the police, and stay low until they arrive to the crime scene and the shooting is over.
If you are in a closed in environment such as a theater, school, hotel, or religious meeting place, always familiarize yourself with the Exit places. Where could you run and hide if a terrorist should enter and start shooting? I know I develop the habit of mostly sitting in the back or somewhere in the middle where ever I go. And I always check out where the exit signs are. Know where they are located.
Take note also of other things in the building. Are there stairs leading to another area, to a basement, or the roof? Is there a door leading to another room that you could run inside and push others in and then lock behind you? What about the restrooms, could you run inside and pull others in with you so you save their lives also?
(Always look out for the welfare and survival of others, this will help save your own life) A real life experience that this works is during the Holocaust in Europe there were many Jehovah’s Witnesses in those Consecration camps, and the reason many of them survived and even helped some of the Jews survived those that they could, was by their physically sustaining, helping, protecting, hiding, covering over, and sharing whatever they had with each other.
In a theater or school, restaurant or any place where there are tables, chairs, or seats it is always good to fall to the ground on hands and knees and try to hide under the tables. In a theater or church get down on hands and knees between the seats and crawl carefully to the nearest exits. If no exits are nearby just lie flat between the seats until the police arrive.
It is very unlikely that the shooter will go from seat row to seat row and shoot people hiding on the floors between the seats. If children are with you protect them by keeping them under you covering them with your body, and tell them to be quite. Ofcourse, if you can crawl out of the building through the nearest exit once out, then run for your life away from the area. Even young children now in terrorist countries are learning to run from very young when terror strikes.
In most cases following your intuition can be the best protection
Sometimes when we get an intuition to not go somewhere it could be like an inner warning and a protection against danger. This is what saved some friends I knew from being killed in the World Trade Center on 9/11 years ago. All four girls living in different places all decided to stay home that day, they followed their intuition, not knowing that others had done the same thing. Only after the attack they found out that the others did not go to work that day and was saved. Another friend of mine was working in the first building on the 45th floor hit by the terrorist airplane.
She had no idea what was happening she thought the loud noise and shaking of the building was an earthquake and she just ran for the stairs. She was on the 45th floor and she flew down those stairs without stopping not once until she got out of the building. And that was the same building where most people lost their lives, probably because some of them didn’t run right away hanging around to find out what was going on.
That was the same reason so many people got killed in the Aurora Colorado killing, people thought the killer was part of the movie and didn’t run or try to hide right away. So many lives could have been saved had they all just hide on hands and knees behind those seats as suggested above. Be observant folks, as soon as you see anything different get moving out of danger.
Fear and anguish among people another sign of the times
Today there is so much fear because there seems to be no end to trouble somewhere in the world. Even in the USA there is the constant fear of another terror attack, or shooting. Right now there are mass mob uprisings in the Middle East and spreading to different countries. Do you know that the international fear and anguish in our generation is also foretold as the sign of the end of Satanic Rule?
In Luke chapter 21: verse 10 and 11 Jesus himself is talking about what to look for when God’s Kingdom starts ruling in Heaven, it reads: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom and there will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another pestilences and food shortages and there will be fearful sights…and verse 25, …”and on the earth anguish of nations not knowing the way out because of the roaring of the sea and its agitation,
verse 26..” while men become faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth for the powers of the heavens will be shaken”. Matthew 24:12 also speaks of the increasing of lawlessness. And Matthew 24:14: “And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.”
So the entire sign is being fulfilled in our day, proving that the end of Satanic Rule is very near. Jesus gave an illustration at: Luke 21:29 – 31: “Note the fig tree and all the other trees… when they are already in the bud, by observing it you know for yourselves that now the summer is near. In this way also when you see these things occurring, know that the Kingdom of God is near”.
In the previous post (“Why cleverly calculated evil acts and killings are not mere innocent acts of insanity or a mental disorder)” I showed from Revelation 12 why increased trouble started because of Satan and his demons being casted out of heaven down to this earth and the sea (the sea refers to the masses of restless humanity who become disturbed or agitated because of all the trouble that starts happening, resulting in loud mob protesting and lawlessness). It said in that scripture: “Woe for the earth and the sea” because the Devil has come down to you having great anger knowing he has a short period of time. His intention on killing the human race was partly successful when he stirred up the nations resulting in two mayor wars World War 1 and World War 11, where millions of people lost their lives.
These wars introduced different kinds of diseases, (pestilences), and ailments. Modern technology and war has also messed up the atmosphere, the air we breathe and the ground is polluted with all kinds of chemicals, and technological waste. Our food and water are not pure as they should be, which is weakening our immune system making us more susceptible to different kinds of diseases. Besides fear and anguish produce daily stresses contributing to the decline in human health and death. With the misuse of human blood and the increased sexual moral decline, other types of mental and sexual transmitted diseases came into existence. Satan sure has brought “Woe” for humankind.
Inspite of modern medical research there is still no cure for many of the mayor diseases, the foretold modern day pestilences contributing to the fear and anguish
No one can deny that our times are plaque by pestilences, inspite of modern medical research, there is still no cure for so many different kinds of diseases, and illnesses some of them still being studied by scientists with no definite cure yet in sight. Even though there might be some improvements in medical treatments, people are still dying from these pestilences, one of the biggest one is cancer which takes the lives of people from all races both young and old alike.
But as we get closer to the end the roaring and agitation of the sea (restless humanity) gets louder. The discontent among the “sea of humanity” is very apparent. The increasing of lawlessness is out of control as people all over the world rise up in mob rage resulting in chaotic rioting, protesting and violence in the streets. It doesn’t take too much of anything for people to go into a rage with resulting protest and violence.
Human governments or the ruling authorities sometimes spoken of as the heavens over us, are indeed shaken as they cannot control the rebellious crowd of protesters in different parts of the world. Pay attention folks, this is not the way humans were created to live. It is very plain to see that the masses of people are under the influence of Satan and the demons pushing them toward total destruction of each other. Two of his biggest deceptive, divisive and controlling powers are religion and politics, Worship and Rulership. All the turmoil in the world can be linked to these two things, and they are standing in the way of permanent peace.
Satan’s two most powerful deceptive and divisive Elements for controlling people and preventing worldwide Peace and Unity are Religion and Politics—Worship and Rulership
Remember the reason he opposed God in the first place was because he wanted worship, and rulership over the human race. He wanted to be like God, (read the previous post of Why cleverly calculated evil acts…) he is called in the Bible “The God of this system of things”, and “the Ruler of the world”.(2 Corinthians 4:4 and John 14:30). (I am encouraging all readers again to read all quoted scriptures throughout this post in their own Bibles to confirm this information as accurate to themselves. I am using the new World translation of the Bible in modern English language, you can use whatever version you have, the message is the same).
When he caused the first humans Adam and Eve to sin, Satan also challenged God’s right to rule and to be worshipped by his own children, human beings. So the Creator allowed time to pass for people to choose which is better, His Rule or Satans, while preparing to eventually settle the issue by means of his Kingdom.
We see the outcome today, nothing but religious and political confusion. Whether they claim to be Christian or none Christian, worshiping a Prophet, an image, atheist or evolutionist, all the world’s “religions” are under the control of the Devil and the demons. (Bible books of 1 Corinthians 10:20 and Luke 7:22). And the Worldwide Political Governments (spoken of in Revelation as the Wild Beast) got their power from the Dragon, which Revelation identified as the original Serpent, Satan the Devil. (Revelation 12:9). So Satan is the one who established all these conflicting religions and divided people up into different national governments. (Revelation 13: 4). This way he has power and gets worship from people all over the world.
The book of Revelation 18 speaks of all these religions as: Babylon the Great, the world empire of false religion. The most reprehensible are those claiming to worship God but proving false by their actions and teachings. They will all be destroyed in the last war, Armageddon. Revelation 18: verse 2 reads: “She has fallen, Babylon the Great has fallen, and she has become a dwelling place of demons and a lurking place of every unclean exhalation… “and in verse 4 and 5, our loving Creator God himself knowing that their are a lot of very righthearted and sincere people deceived by religion and trapped inside of her because of being baptized as enfants into most of these religions, something God or Jesus never instituted, is calling sincere people out of false religion: (continuing in verse 4 and 5):
“And I heard another voice out of heaven say: Get out of her my people if you do not want to share with her in her sins, and if you do not want to receive part of her plagues. For her sins have massed together clear up to heaven, and God has called her acts of injustice to mind… “and verse 8: “That is why in one day her plagues will come, death and mourning and famine, and she will be completely burned with fire because Jehovah God who judged her is strong”.
Even though all the nations represented by the United Nations will come to some kind of peaceful agreement proclaiming “Peace and Security” (Bible Book of 1 Thessalonians 5:3) it will not be for long, because the scriptures says this will be followed by “sudden destruction.” Revelation 18:8 mentioned above shows Babylon the Great destruction will be like in one day, suddenly.
And this book (Chapter 17) shows further how the very Political Governments according to God’s will, develop intense hatred for Babylon the Great, false religion (also called the harlot) and will suddenly turn on her and destroy her completely. (Revelations Chapter 13 to 19). This will be the beginning of the final war, the war of Armageddon, to be followed by the destruction of all Satan’s worldwide political systems, the two main elements standing in the way of world peace and unity.
Then finally the Source of Evil Satan and the demons will be captured by Jesus Christ and thrown into a abyss. This part of God inspired pre-written history is the only thing yet to be fulfilled before the Kingdom goes into action to restore obedient humans and Paradise again.
What can we do now to protect ourselves from the direct influence of Satanic or demonic control?
Since the Book of Revelation says Satan is misleading the entire inhabited earth and this would result in “Woe for the Earth” (Revelation 12: 9) then every single person on earth right now is open to his attacks. But we can protect ourselves from becoming possessed or directly under his control by refraining from any conduct that could bring us under such.
The Bible Book of Deuteronomy chapter 18: verse 10-12 gives us some of those practices that can bring a person under the direct possession by Satan or the demons. Such as: consulting fortune tellers, practicing divination and magic, casting of spells, consulting spirit mediums, astrology, Quigi boards, sorcerers, all kinds of spiritism, (voodoo) reading crystal balls, consulting and talking to the dead (in reality it’s the demons that talk back to you, not the dead person).
Also people can become under demonic control by taking hard drugs new ones being added every day that can kill people in a very short time. Some of these synthetic drugs the newest ones being “Smiles 2C-I”, and “25b-Nborne” instantly brings a person under demonic control and death follows shortly after. Teenagers are the victims so far. Please stay away from drugs young people. Remember our enemy wants us dead, this is one of his easiest way to kill you. Also being involved in false religions, becoming extremely interested in ghosts and the occult.
Being obsessed with evil, violence, watching and reading demonic or satanic books and movies, developing extreme hatred for other people (that is the real spirit of Satan, he hates people), being always angry and ready to fight, liars, all immoral sexual conduct including some mentioned in the previous post, such as sodomy, child molesters and all unnatural debased unclean and obscene conduct. In reality everything that God condemns is a protection from becoming controlled by Satan, since he approves and promotes just the opposite of what is right.
So learning all we can about our Creator, the true God Jehovah, developing love in our hearts for him and other people, doing good, learning the real reason why Jesus died for us and how he will use His Kingdom to adminster the benefits of his death for the healing of all peoples, is another great and the best protection from demonic possession, for where there is God’s spirit and Love it will conquer Evil. And this is what will determine whether we survive into the new world or not. It is our desire to do what is right, the willingness to learn and be obedient, faith and love for God and our fellowman.
And that is basically what true worship is all about. It is a way of life, not an institution. That was the only “religion” that was established in the Garden of Eden. Being obedient to the Creator, with no bunch of restricted laws, no religious rituals and sacrifices, no doctrines, no unnecessary burdens, no hellfire scare tactics, no false hopes, and no specific holidays to celebrate.
Even now Jesus sacrificial death already abolished all those laws, animal sacrifices, observation of specific days, and other rituals practiced under the law of Moses, the old law covenant which was a temporary law pointing to the Deliverer or Messiah. It was a burden because so much was needed for the forgiveness of sins of the people, it was given to sinful humans until the Messiah came and died.
He was the foretold “Lamb of God” that would take away the sins of the world instead of animal sacrifices. He replaced that old law covenant with all its burdensome animal sacrifices and requirements, with the New Covenant based on Love of God and Neighbor, which sums up the entire Ten commandments. This is what true worship was supposed to be, is now, and will be in Paradise, a way of life). Living a clean life, and the freedom to celebrate life everyday, no restrictions as to how kind, or loving, or joyful, or happy you want to be. This is the truth Jesus said would set us FREE!
The removal of Evil and peace restored to the earth soon to come
It is very unnatural and everyone knows that the human race wasn’t supposed to live like this. Being in constant fear and on alert to terror or killings is not normal. We were supposed to be a united human family, not being afraid of our own fellowman. Fortunately our Creator has already provided the means for saving obedient humans, and will not allow the entire human race to be killed by his enemy.
The war to capture the Devil and his demons will result in a lot of trouble on earth known as the war of Armageddon mentioned above. Once it is over then complete freedom and peace will follow for those who survived. Revelation 7:9 says a great crowd of people from every nation, race and walks of life will survive Armageddon. But it depends on what they do now, not on a physical hiding place.
We just can’t imagine how the earth and life will be when evil is removed, and peace restored. God’s Kingdom will go into action to restore the human race back to perfection. Everyday people will grow a little more perfect than the day before, instead of getting older and sicker, they will be getting younger and healthier. Even the dead will return to life and benefit from this restoration. Many survivors into that peaceful earth will be able to welcome former relatives whom died years ago back to Paradise.
Finally the promise of Paradise will be a reality just as it was meant to be and humans will experience complete freedom
Yes, finally the promise of Paradise will be a reality just as it was supposed to be before that angel became Satan and caused the first humans to sin. (read previous post: Why cleverly calculated evil acts and killings are not mere innocent act of insanity or a mental disorder) The promise given to faithful Abraham years ago that by means of his seed all nations of the earth will bless themselves (Genesis 22:18), will go into operation as Jesus Christ the promised Seed and Messiah along with his co-rulers making up the Kingdom of God go into full force in restoring the human race back to perfection and the Earth to a beautiful Paradise. And Abraham (and many of those faithful men of old) will be resurrected and see the fulfillment of that promise with his own eyes.
Here are some more scriptures that will be definitely fulfilled. Psalms 37:11 says: “The meek ones themselves will possess the earth and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.” and verse 29: “the righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will reside forever upon it”… Also Isaiah 33:24 says:”No resident will say I am sick”.
Revelation 21:1-4, verse 4 says how God will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”. Revelation 21:5 confirms these promises with the words: “These words are faithful and true.” So there is no “if’s, maybe or could be true” that God will restore humans back to perfection on a Paradise earth like it was in the beginning. It will happen! We have all the signs, pay attention folks! Also Jesus was real, that was the reason why he died, otherwise his death would be for nothing!
Finally all people will be free! Free from all fear, free from terrorist attacks and shootings, free from old age, sickness, diseases and death, free from demonic and satanic influence toward violence (they will be gone), free from all false religious teachings and influence, free from worry and stress. Then all humans who survived into that new world along with those resurrected to life could share in singing the phrase “Free at last, Peace at last. Thank God Almighty we have Peace and Freedom at last!” And that is a wonderful hope to look forward to.
