How Satan's Human Accomplices Are Draining The Life Out Of Americans

        The Bible warns us that we should not be ignorant of Satan's devices, lest he should get an advantage over us (see 2 Corinthians 2:11).  In that light, and in the light of all that Satan is doing to destroy our beloved country, working through his human accomplices in government, the medical system, the banking system, the media, and so on, it is time we expose a major demonic device that us increasingly afflicting many people today -- vampirism.

One does not have to look very far to see that vampires and vampirism have become popular phenomena in modern society.  In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of television and internet movies plus major motion pictures that use vampires as their main theme in one form or another.  Perhaps one way to accurately describe this is "art imitating death." As a result of this, police departments and other law enforcement agencies are reporting a substantial rise in vampire cult activities.

Now is a crucial time to shine The revealing Light of Jesus Christ on Satan's wicked device of "vampirism" helping others realize the actual reality, the true nature, of this very destructive and seductive spiritual weapon in Satan's arsenal.  This is such a critical time for this Truth, while the popular portrayal of vampirism, the folklore, and the superstitions regarding it, are all part of Satan's deceptive scheme, his effective means by which he distracts people away from what "vampirism" truly is...  one of his most divisive, yet subtle, tools against humanity. 

The idea that a vampire is some colorful little character with fangs and a cape is as wrong as thinking that the devil runs around in a red suit carrying a pitchfork.  Make no mistake, vampirism is real and has infiltrated the United States government, medical system, media, treasury department, and more, using the physical bodies of Satan's human accomplices, for the sole purpose of "stealing, killing, and destroying" the lives of everyone that it possible can. 

So what is a vampire? Webster's dictionary defines a vampire as "an unscrupulous person who preys ruthlessly on others, as a blackmailer or usurer." Webster's also defines vampirism as "the act or practice of preying ruthlessly on other people." The LORD Jesus Christ defines it this way, "The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:... (John 10:10)." Therefore, according to The LORD, a vampire is surely, and simply, one kind of thief. 

Quite important to note is the context of The LORD's remarks.  In the second part of the verse He clearly contrasts the works of the thief, including the vampire, with His Own works, saying, "...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10)."  Jesus Christ brings Life that is abundant for those who want Him, who pursue and love Him.  Vampires, on the other hand, come to destroy the Abundant Life by stealing time and energy and, no matter how much they take, they are never satisfied.  We're seeing this unfold in America today.

A vampire is a human parasite, a human leech often-times influenced by a demonic accomplice.  They are focused solely on themselves to the point of depleting or draining the resources and life out of others to achieve or satisfy their own selfish objectives or cravings.  Another way of describing this is out-of-control selfishness.  A person who has succumbed to the spirit of vampirism would simply be one who is leading a misguided life of tearing down or using others in an attempt to exalt themselves.  We are dealing with wicked spirits seeking to fulfill the devil's mission, to steal, kill, and destroy the person who gives them place in their life.  And these same spirits attempt to use their victim to destroy anyone who becomes involved with that person.

While vampirism can involve both human and demonic activity, this is not always the case.  Unclean spirits must look for humans to influence, because that is how Satan's work of killing, stealing, and destroying is accomplished in the earth.  That is why the battle for the human soul is so brutal at times.  In order for a wicked spirit to gain legal access to the physical realm, it must first find and, through temptation, gain entrance into a willing host body in order to do Satan's bidding in the physical realm.

Observe the vast difference between a person who has been overtaken by a spirit of vampirism and someone who genuinely hungers for God.  People who truly hunger for God and have committed their lives to the process of daily being made One i-n Jesus Christ eventually enter the place where they "want" to die to their own selfish wants and desires in order to become an asset to those around them.  That is, they give away Life, the Life of Jesus Christ that is being newly-constructed in them by the working of The Holy Spirit.  Someone who is operating as a vampire, however, is always on the take, drawing the life out of those around them.

However contrary it is to natural thinking, the one who gives away Life grows, while the one who steals, kills, and destroys shrinks.  The lie about vampirism is that the vampire gets stronger by consuming the life of others, but, in truth, they are destroying themselves. 

"There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.  The liberal {generous} soul shall be made fat {deep, large, rich}: and he that waters shall be watered also himself (Proverb 11:24-25)."

We pray that your passion is to always become an asset, a giver of the Life of Jesus Christ, to everyone you come in contact with.  The Apostle Paul said, "I have showed you all things, how that so labouring you ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of The LORD Jesus Christ, how he said, It is more blessed to GIVE than to receive (Acts 20:35)."  So, if we stand in front of "the mirror of this message" and do NOT see our reflection in it, we'll recognize that we have truly been blinded to the Truth concerning this matter.  On the other hand, if we stand in front of "the mirror of this message" and we DO see our reflection, then we are well on our way to becoming Life-giving assets to those in the body of Jesus Christ and to Americans as a whole.

Right now, in the Name of Jesus Christ, call on The Holy Spirit and ask Him to meet with you in the pages of God's Holy written Word.  Begin reading slowly, pause periodically and listen.  Slowly read a bit more, pause, and listen.  Repeat this until you hear the sweetest sound of all, the wonder-full Voice of The Holy Spirit...  uploading to your spirit the things that God gives to Jesus Christ to relay to The Holy Spirit to give to you, personally.  Isaiah 40:31 tells us, "But they that wait upon The LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

God makes us a great promise in His written Word, "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 (2 Chronicles 7:14)."

If you have not yet invited Jesus Christ into your heart to be your Lord and Savior, now is the time!  Or, if you gave your heart to Jesus Christ at some time in the past, but have strayed away from Him, pray the following prayer, right now, right where you are.  Then, relax, and watch what God will do in your life.  "Father God, in the precious Name of Jesus Christ Who is The King over all kings and The LORD that is over all lords, I lay my life at Your Feet.  I come to You, and confess that I am a sinner, and I ask for You to please forgive me of all my sins--those that I know I have committed as well as those that I am not even aware I have committed.  Lord Jesus Christ, come into my heart and be my Lord and my Savior.  I lay my life, and everything in it before You and I ask that You and The wonder-full Holy Spirit begin the miraculous process of removing my old sinful nature and building Yourself in me.  I ask that You redeem the time that have wasted, and allow me the opportunity to become exactly what You had predestined me to be, from before the foundation of the earth.  I commit my life to You now, and thank You for receiving me as Your own.  In The wonder-full Name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen."


If you just prayed this prayer, we want to congratulate you for making the greatest decision that you can ever make!  By accepting Jesus Christ, or rededicating your life to Him, as your personal Lord and Savior, you have begun the wonder-full process of being made One i-n God, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit, and being grafted into God's Royal Family.

We would like to invite you to contact us so that we can send you information that will help you begin growing in your daily walk with The Holy Trinity.  We would encourage you to begin attending a Holy-Spirit-filled, Bible-believing church right away.  If you do not know of a good church in your area, first and foremost ask The Holy Spirit, in Jesus Christ's Name, to lead you to people who do know.  Some of the most wonderful times in our lives have occurred after asking The Holy Spirit to lead us to, or educate us, on how to locate good strong believers in Jesus Christ.  If you ask Him, He will do the same for you as well.

We advise you to begin reading your Bible daily, whether you understand it or not.  Always remember, God's written Word, The Holy Bible is like no other book that has ever been written!  Why? Because, though many use it as a text book, The Holy Bible is much more than that.  The Holy Bible has been preserved by God through the ages to be "a place of meeting" with The Holy Spirit.  When we find a quiet place, open our Bible, and ask The Holy Spirit, in Jesus Christ's Name, to meet with us in its pages, He comes and teaches us what God had in His heart when He gave each verse to His prophets to write down, as well as he can spring board off of any passage to speak to us, in real time, whatever God wants us to know or be comforted by at any given time, and in any situation in our lives. 

Early in our walk with God, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit, there are Bible teachers on television, on the internet, and on the radio that can help us begin to receive teaching and encouragement in the things of God right away.  Although informative, these programs are never to be a substitute for close relationships with people, Christian friends, who love, pursue, and walk with God, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit as a passionate lifestyle.

At times, your new journey of being made One i-n Jesus Christ will be difficult, you will be tempted to go back to your old way of living.  It is during times like those that knowing people who truly love Jesus Christ is crucially important.  There really IS strength in numbers! 

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12)."

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds)  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)."

We pray that all we have shared above will help you better realize what we are seeing happen to our beloved fellow-Americans right now, and why.  Always remember, "Though God has won the war for us already, there will be various skirmishes we will have to fight through along the way.  Be encouraged...  the BEST is yet to come!"
