SATAN: the Supreme Commander of ISIS

IT MAKES SENSE TO ME

by Larry Peterson

At 12:30 p.m. on August 31, 1939, Adolf Hitler made a decision.  He issued the order that was to plunge the entire world into its bloodiest war ever:  This is the order that started World War II

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SUPREME COMMANDER OF THE
ARMED FORCES
MOST SECRET

Berlin, August 31, 1939: Directive No.1 for the Conduct of the War;
1) Now that all the political possibilities of disposing by peaceful
means of a situation which is intolerable for Germany are exhausted, I
have determined on a solution by force.
2) The attack on Poland is to be carried out;
Date of attack: September 1, 1939.
Time of attack:  4:45 a.m. *
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The order was signed by Hitler and for the next six years the world would experience an unimaginable evil  that would cause such brutality, carnage and death it gave a complete new meaning to a heretofore biblical word.  That word was Holocaust.  (I view the words Holocaust and Genocide as synonyms.)

During the 20th century Genocide(s) claimed the lives of tens of millions of people.  Joseph Stalin, the brutal Soviet dictator and our “ally” during World War II, probably killed more people than Hitler and his primary means of execution was starvation.  Yup, “old Joe” was quite the guy.  Between 1932 and 1933 alone, Stalin actually starved over 7,000,000 of his OWN people to death.  By the time he died he had killed 25,000,000 people.  Now we are in the 21st century. What has changed?   Genocide continues in the most brutal fashion.  From North Korea to the Middle East to the African continent, genocide is claiming the lives of men , women and children by the thousands.  And God help us all,  most of the current human butchery is done under the banner of virtue:  “Praise Allah”.   How sick and evil is that?

I just used the word evil.  When I use that word I am not simply referring to something morally wrong or harmful or basically wicked.  When I use the word evil I am referencing Satan, the devil himself.  He is known by other names such as Lucifer, Beelzebub, Asmodeus, Leviathan, etc.  I must be clear so make no mistake; I believe (as do millions more) that Satan does exist and that he is spreading his unending and incomparable vitriolic hatred all over the world.  He is also cunning enough to use modern day communication techniques to advertise his  demonocity.

I write under the masthead of  IT MAKES SENSE TO ME.   It follows that what I write does, in fact, “make sense to me”.  I am a Catholic man and my faith is part of my very being.  Much of that faith is reinforced by what is called  Natural Law.  Natural Law is part of who we are.  It is (in my opinion) part of our genetic makeup.  It cannot be seen or touched or examined under a microscope.  It cannot even be proven.  However, “common sense” tells us it does exist.

Natural Law is what we all, as human beings, know to be right or wrong.  Some of us call it “our conscience”.  An example of Natural Law at work is when a mother asks her small child, “Did you eat that cookie I left out for your sister?”  The child, with crumbs and chocolate on her face answers, “No, mommy.”  She knew it was wrong  to take that cookie so she made a choice.  She used her “free will”.  She answered , “No”.  That is Natural Law at work.

Angels are God’s creations just as people are.  The bible references angels in many places.  It also references the evil angels.  These are the angels that, upon the moment of their creation, were so filled with their beauty and grandeur, that they decided they were greater than God Himself.  In that moment they lost everything.  Every last ounce of hope that might have been was gone forever.  Unlike mankind, who lives and has many chances, in the angelic world, this could not be.  Filled with an unimaginable hatred and loathing and unable to attack God and the Good Angels, Satan and his followers have focused on the ones with free will, the ones filled with pride and envy, the human race.

Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Saddam Hussein and Pol Pot are high profile followers of Satan.  But there are countless millions more who these demons  have been able to recruit and induct into their evil army.  Just the other day we all saw one of Satan’s followers  behead James Foley, an American journalist.  For full effect the grizzly execution was performed on camera, for all the world to see, including the Foley family.

How evil is this angel known as Satan?  How evil are the angels that followed him into hell?  The depths of their  hatred for God and all that is Good is incomprehensible.  These creatures were the brightest and the highest among all  others.  Now they are lower than  the lowest sinner because even that sinner still has hope for redemption.  The “fallen angels”,  filled with their own enormous pride and bursting with envy, are silently screeching and wailing as they skulk around the world seeking new followers.  Sadly, they have been very successful.

One of Satan’s greatest pupils had great success early on in his morbid career.  His name was Adolf Hitler.  He destroyed  millions.  In the end he and his followers were relegated to the ash heap of history.  ISIS and all those that are following Satan will suffer the same fate.  The cost might be very high but they can never ever win their ignominious war against God.  And that is exactly what they are waging, a war against God.

By the way, the greatest weapon at our disposal in this war is PRAYER.  Here is one written by Pope Leo XIII back in 1884. The Holy Father’s purpose back then was to combat the “father of lies”.

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
b
y the Divine Power of God,
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Depravity in Oklahoma—The Ultimate Denigration of Catholicism: The "black mass"

IT MAKES SENSE TO ME

by Larry Peterson

We Catholics have a prayer which we recite and it is directed to St. Michael the Archangel.  Pope Leo XIII wrote this prayer back in 1886 and it was recited virtually every day at all Low Masses from that time until the late 1960s.  Then the  Vatican II reforms began to be implemented and the prayer was more or less discontinued although it was still recited at different liturgical functions.  St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI both encouraged  more recitation of this prayer and it is once again being recited more frequently  in many Catholic Churches.  Here is the prayer:

St. Michael the Archangel defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray: and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander around the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Why do we have such a prayer.  Many people do not even believe  in Satan or “evil spirits”. Many folks, including some Catholics, do not even believe in a place called “Hell”.  However, many people do and that includes those who “worship”  Hell’s leader, Satan  (he has other names too).  The Catholic Church declares that both Heaven and Hell do exist.  In fact, both places are mentioned in our profession of faith which is recited at Mass.

The point of all this is that the Mass, the most beautiful thing this side of heaven, is the very life, death and resurrection of Christ Himself.  Christ instituted and offered the First Mass on the First Holy Thursday at His Last Supper.  The Mass, with the ordained priest standing in Christ’s place,  has allowed  Christ’s redemptive victory to continue and  take place at every moment of every day somewhere on this planet ever since.  May I please ask, is there something wrong with that?  If you do not believe it or understand it, why do you care?  How can such a  beautiful thing about Love and Forgiveness offend you?

This magnificent gift that we Catholics embrace as Heaven sent  is going to be denigrated by Satanists who want to hold a “black mass” at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall on September 21.  (What is a “black mass”?  You can click on the link for detailed info.)  This abomination about to take place is nothing new.  Hatred for Christ and His Christian followers has been going on for centuries.  To prove that point, look what is happening at this very moment in the Middle East.  What is being done to our brother and sister Christians is horrendous and fills the definition of “crimes against humanity”.

So,  I must ask another question,  “Are you American Christian haters happy about Christian genocide?  Do you like what ISIS is doing to thousands of men, women and children?  Do you approve of what Hitler and his evil followers did to millions?  Why do you people want to mock us?   What do you get out of it?  You have even managed to get your hands on a “consecrated host” and supposedly have a convicted sex offender ready to do the honor of desecrating it.  Do you really hate us and what we believe so much?”

As far as I am concerned, you few people who have this twisted need to spit in the faces of well over one billion of us Catholics by dishonoring and desecrating the worship we hold so dear to our hearts, are reprehensible.  You have polluted your God given minds with Satan’s droppings.  I feel sorry for you.  However, I do have a bit of good news for all of you self-serving misanthropists.  We Catholics will be praying for you and we will be praying the very prayer that appears in this column.  In fact, millions of us will be doing so on Sunday, September 21.

Finally,  If you happen to hear an unusual knock  as your sex-pervert begins his desecration of our Blessed Lord, you might pay attention to it.   You have kidnapped  our Savior and  He is there  under the appearances of a small round piece of unleavened bread.  St. Michael will be the one knocking.  You still will have a chance to stop your nonsense.  God is Love and will always be ready to embrace you.  But that is your choice.  If you do not, you will NEVER get past St. Michael the Archangel and then,  God help you all.
