Mr. Kunle Aluko was a blessing to this work.
The venue of the meeting is located at the bottom of the ocean. It is nearly three thousand miles below sea, right beneath an impassable angle. Shooting out from the water in pyramid formations are massively positioned rocks, which appear organised to form dreadful alleys. Standing at one end of one of the alleys and looking through this corridor of darkness, you could have a faint view of illumination at the opposite end. It isn’t so bright because of the constant haze, which is characteristic of this environment. Uninhabited by man or animal, fishes are as though removed from water on approaching this Triangle. The location is Wimunda Triangle.
Underneath this scenery is a mighty city and a gigantic citadel stands proudly at the centre of this city of activities. Spirits are busy, visiting human agents are busy too. Businesses are transacted as anywhere else in the human world. Right in the middle of the city and deliberately located beneath the Wimunda Triangle is the Citadel of Iniquity, and there is an imposing edifice built up to represent this Citadel. Inside the building, in a conference room, are five demons. It is not the usual conference setting. It is very close to a natural gallery.
Satan has just walked in amidst pin-drop silence. He is strangely disposed today, as always. He comes in with an air around him. You may understand it to be pride. He carries on as if he controls the world and you’d think he created it. He is of a stern disposition. He is neatly dressed and could pass for a model. A typical gentleman, he is a serious business executive in a blue-black blazer, finely lapelled and centered with gold studs large enough to represent buttons.
Except for the sound coming from his shoes, the air around this finely dressed gentleman is romantic but intimidating. In his hand is a flat portable briefcase, which turns out to be a laptop as he places it on a stool by his throne. On this computer is connected a satellite internet facility which allows him a view of the universe at a glance, and at the touch of a button. A technology he improved upon since taking the Messiah to the pinnacle of the temple in that epic temptation, twenty centuries ago.
Seated to his left and right before him, are the highest officers of his kingdom. They are Controlling Spirits and Spiritual Powers in charge of high places. These Spirits are given power to control man’s imaginations, thoughts and actions. They are five in number, excluding Satan himself, whose inclusion makes them six, one of the numbers of Satan.
The scene opens at a Council of Satan Meeting (CSM). Principalities and Powers are in attendance. Demons and other lesser spirits are not allowed within earshot. Outside the meeting room, there are fierce looking guards with no intention to yield ground.
Their form and shape portray very handsomely built beings. With appearances resembling well-proportioned giant athletes, they appear perfect in design. They are of light coloration, bronze and somewhat like beautiful polished brass. Their uniform is similar to what you’d think the Roman soldiers in the olden days wore. Their helmet, is a coloured metal. A plate-like object extending down from the head-piece between the eyes serve as their nose cover. On the back of their helmets are shield-like ledges extending at an angle from ear lobe to ear lobe around the back of the neck. This shield serves as neck cover and protector, while it allows for maximum movement of the head.
At the top of their helmets are ridge-rows of coarse hair-like material. There is a chest cover on the upper portion of their bodies that is held in place by straps which loop over their shoulders, crossing down behind them and passing under their arms, and well reattached to their chest cover near the waist. Except for the crossing straps, their backs remain bare.
The garment on the lower portion of their bodies resembles a skirt of pleated metal-like material with one pleat being dull in colour and the other bright. Their skirts end at the knee. Around their waist is a wide belt. On each side of their belts are hosters containing some sort of objects. Their boots are constructed of the same material as the rest of the uniform, only that they are tougher. The front of their legs are covered from the knee down with the back of their legs opened except for straps that wind around and connects the back to the front of their boots. The boots totally enclose their feet. Their arms are completely bare.
Inside the Citadel, the principal demons who are Council Members give reports of their various departments and jurisdictions about this global arena. It’s 2.00am on Saturday morning.
Satan: King of the Kingdom of Darkness
Abaddon: High officer of the Kingdom in charge of war and conflict.
Affliction: High Officer of the Kingdom in control of untimely human death.
Temptation: Human Affairs Officer of the Kingdom
Wickedness: Head of Elementary Spirits, Witches and Wizards, Water Spirits and all petty Spirits.
Hell Warder: Warder-General in charge of hell.
FIRST REPORT: Abaddon
Satan: Reports have reached me that there is drought in the kingdom. Demons are hungry. Do you want them to eat my fingers?
Abaddon: Your highness. It’s blood money that has lost its value. The blood of the guilty is not as valuable as the blood of the innocent. Your highness, you know yourself how difficult it is to spill innocent blood. We gain more casualties than we gain blood.
Satan: I don’t care. Even if you lose fifty legions, spill more innocent blood and get more unsaved souls. I don’t have to tell you what to do. If you have casualties and you lose men, recruit water agents and witches to donate members of their unsuspecting families for blood money. There has to be food in my kingdom.
Abaddon: We beg your pardon your highness.
Satan: Beg yourselves. You’re weak and senseless. You lack initiative and you infuriate me with your sluggishness. With all the resources available to you, you can’t maintain constant supply of human parts and products. What have you been doing with the enforcement you requested and got approval for?
Abaddon: I’ve been working closely with Mass Destruction and he is designing Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). He has so far developed atomic bombs, nuclear weapons and lethal gas. He is only waiting to spread the technology across the globe, so everyone will have access before action. Your highness, you know we’ve only applied two of them in Miroshima and Mirak. You alone can give us the power and order to use them. We can’t stand those God’s angels who are watching to ensure they remain unused.
Satan: You talk nonsense too often. Just listen to yourself (Satan mimicking), “We can’t stand those God’s angels.” Just go ahead and use them. Don’t give silly and useless excuses. Let me know your global situation report.
Abaddon: I’ve been working with Pride, Lust and Violence to spread wars in most of Acrifa, Satmerica and particularly, in the Centreast. Injustice and Poverty have been doing a great work in Acrifa to ensure that their leaders remain insensitive to their subjects’ well being, thereby provoking confrontations.
Satan: What about Notmerica and Euron? You haven’t done anything serious since 1945. The succeeding cold conflict between Notmerica and Masia was a good strategy but died a sudden death. You wasted my time with what you claimed would end the world and humanity.
Abaddon: Your highness, you too know that the more developed continents are better influenced into wars by Pride and Greed. I’ve been working lately with these Spirits using commerce to cause conflict. Mirak is a good bait. And of course, if there isn’t peace in Centreast, there can’t be peace in Notmerica and Euron.
Satan: There you go again with your strategy of rubbish. You’re applying old known tricks again. What came out of Miganistan? How about Nebanon and Zietnam? You waste my time and resources and yet you claim wisdom.
Abaddon: Much of our focus has shifted to Acrifa and Centreast since the end of the cold conflict between Northmerica and Masia. Your highness can attest to the fact that there have been wars, human casualties, rapes, child abuse, confusion and killings in those places more than anywhere else on earth.
Satan: So, how do you intend to consolidate?
Abaddon: We’re trying to consolidate in Westacrifa and Centacrifa. We’re hoping to make it spread. Although, we are having slight resistance from those Christians, we reckon they won’t be able to withstand us for much longer. We are consolidating by causing them distraction through their immediate and extended families. We are also distracting them with worldly cares and concerns. As for Centreast, we’ve completely consolidated. Intolerance, Unforgiveness and Violence have done their jobs well and have infact built their Headquarters at Centreast, so that extreme terrorism is fast becoming commonplace.
Satan: You haven’t pleased me yet. You haven’t realised that it is the head that controls the body. If the head leads the body to drown, the body will swell.
Abaddon: I don’t pretend not to understand you your highness. I get your meaning. We’ve made sure that Acrifa as a whole is governed by bad leaders. We’ve not only given them bad leaders, we blind the leaders to the pains of the people and we make them live in false worlds by building beautiful mansions and fortresses and by ensuring that they surround themselves with sycophants. Their policies have remained largely antipeople.
Satan: Have you noticed that a few Acrifan leaders are spearheading peace moves? You ought to have nailed them since.
Abaddon: Yes, your highness. We’re working to cause dissatisfaction and tribal conflicts within their territories. Once we cause division, there is bound to be conflict and the leaders will have no choice but to mind their internal problems.
Satan: But the leaders appear undaunted.
Abaddon: I know Nairarise is one of them. The Christians in that region are very stubborn. Their leader is an acclaimed born again. This hasn’t made things easy at all. As for the Christians, they are praying more for their leaders who have consequently evolved less self-centered sub regional policies in order to help their sub-regions out of conflict.
Satan: Have you considered exploring religion as a Weapon of Internal Distraction (WID)?
Abaddon: Things have been quiet for now. You can’t apply religion too often. If you do, security within religious enclaves will never relax and we’ll lose that strategy forever. But we are making sure the leaders of religion-sensitive areas make promises they don’t keep. Promises of normalcy and peace. Once security is relaxed and we see it so, we strike. It’s easy to do. We strike a little match in form of a rumour and a thousand people die in one fell swoop.
Satan: I’m not satisfied with armed robbery, violence, assassinations and murder situations generally. Cause those stupid people to go, steal, destroy and kill. I’m with them always.
Abaddon: We must weaken the police to do that. Besides, we’re trying to infiltrate the police with more bad eggs in order to create the necessary openings. We’re also redoubling efforts to maintain the chain of hired assassinations. The new approach is to enlist known ex-armed robbers in the Police Force.
Satan: You know that Acrifa is endowed with human and mineral resources. The magnitude is not known anywhere else in the world. Ensure there is uneven distribution of the resources. Incite division amongst them so they don’t get together in unity and rise up to eradicate poverty.
Abaddon: Intolerance and Illiteracy have relocated to regions where you have mineral resources. I suggest that Wickedness should reposition most of her spirits to major cities and state capitals, while I leave the more violent Spirits to invade the hinterlands and coastlines.
Satan: What have you done so far with the local chiefs?
Abaddon: They’ve been taken care of by Greed, Self-centeredness and Love of Money. These three demons need no re-enforcement; they’re maintaining their hold on the traditional rulers. We’re making sure the rulers lose control of their youths and by extension their communities.
Satan: There’s been relative calm in most capital cities of Acrifa. Move Contention and his spirits to distabilise the countries. You haven’t done much in this area. You remember there isn’t much time left. This generation must be wasted.
Abaddon: We’re really wasting lives. There’s an average of one hundred and seventy-five million pregnancies annually, and globally. Of the one hundred and seventy-five million, we achieve fifteen percent infant mortality rate. We are increasing the figure to twenty five percent in six months. Also, there are currently seventy-five million abortions yearly on the earth. We’re looking to increase it to hundred million by the end of the year. Abortion was one of the spirits you approved for my team at the last meeting. He’ll assist in this challenge. Immorality has Fornication and Adultery working in his team and they are a deadly trio. Presently, they ensure that zero point five billion illicit relationships get consummated every Saturday night across the earth. The result of which is at least ninety million conceptions, resulting in seventy-five million abortions.
Satan: How many medical prisoners do we have working to perpetrate this?
Abaddon: We have one point two million doctor agents working unwittingly with us to perform abortions worldwide. This is our easiest source of innocent blood supply, but it is limited.
Satan: Yes, we have limited supply, so you know it? We can’t depend on just seventy-five million abortions to maintain more than one-third of what used to be God’s angels. You’ve failed in sin and iniquity engineering. You must increase promiscuity. Enter the hearts of young men and women, do something promising. Get Immorality to work round the clock and round the globe with Fornication and Adultery. Make sure they overrun everywhere there is human life.
Abaddon: We’re looking into schools and universities to draw more blood and to capture unsaved souls through two major means, namely,
(ii) Cultism, gangsterism and ritual killings. Some of the students we can’t influence into immorality, we allow Pride and Rage to work closely with, and to ensure they are influenced into cultism . Unforgiveness and Vengeance are having a party on the students. Just that there are only a few organized cults within the universities. We’ve introduced cultism into secondary schools also. The problem we’re having yet is that the angels of God, namely Morality and Godly fear, are stationed in most secondary schools. When the students dismiss school, we enjoy little respite but it doesn’t last too long as the Angels end up waiting for them at home. They have a way of helping parents to instill godly fear in their children. There’s hope though. With Modernity and his cohorts, we can move ahead. I’ve briefed Laisser-Faire not to only focus his attention on the more developed world and on political matters, but to also move Parental-Compromise and Post-Modernism into homes in the less developed continents, thereby weakening matrimonial control over children.
Juvenile Delinquency is experimenting quite a number of things with the children. For instance, he has done a lot to see that vices perpetrated by adults are achieved with children. To make this possible, we’ve been working together to design ways of accomplishing our aim through television and games. This is a very effective medium. Laziness and Carelessness have taken care of most parents. They don’t understand that their children know deeper things than they know. You can’t also imagine what success we’ve had so far with the internet technology. Pornography has captured most children; they’re under our control and have learnt from the internet, as much as their parents may never know until they die. There isn’t any practical way of rescuing these children; they’re our captives. Parents have failed. But we shan’t relent. To measure the success of Affliction as it concerns sickness for instance, you only need to look at the population of patients in hospitals worldwide. In much the same way your highness, to measure our success in child crime and child moral breakdown; just look at how many juvenile prisons there are worldwide and check out their population. Also take a look at street violence and the number of kids involved. As for cultists, they’ve been given more reasons to kill their rivals. Only, I must admit, there aren’t as many cults on the earth. We’re hoping to spread and increase cults that promote direct Satan worship within the universities. When this is done, we’ll ensure that a number of students and lecturers are sacrificed as worship to your highness every quarter. The aim is to serialize and maintain killings at least four seasons in a year. And if we can get the cults to spread to all the universities, whoa! Then we’ll have quarterly feasts.
Satan: Give me a paper on this initiative and send it to me by evil-mail. You appear to be innovative but you annoy me with poor executions.
Abaddon: Your highness, you should personally commend our colleagues working in the clinics and hospitals, who are assisting us to achieve our goals. We’ve encouraged more of the human agents working with us to study medicine and nursing. A good number have done so and are either working for clinics, hospitals or maternities or have established theirs and contributing their own quota to the Central Blood Bank (CBB). They’ve demanded that we introduce the incentive of promoting them in rank within the Kingdom as a spur to increasing their quota. Some would like to be financially wealthy. Yet others want us to afflict their enemies, so that they’d be sent to colleagues’ clinics and hospitals that would give them access to inject them to death.
SECOND REPORT: Affliction
Satan: Affliction, you’ve been waiting for me to afflict you with my wrath. You’re my most sluggish officer in this Kingdom. Look how long it takes a man or woman to die of AIDS. Have you noticed that some people who got infected with HIV as teenagers are forty or fifty years old now? Just take a look
(Satan strikes his keyboard and promptly turns the laptop around for all to see.)
Affliction: Your highness, look what I’ve discovered about that. I heard two angels of God discussing the other day. One of them was Divine Health, and the other was Longsuffering; they were with Mercy and Grace on that evening. You remember Grace? The angel who worked with Jesus during His earthly ministry?
Satan: (Interjects). Stop giving me headache. Cease indulging in foolish history. Just give me the information.
Affliction: I am sorry my lord. Their discussion bordered on how God has preserved people with HIV, so they can repent before they pass away. They said God has also preserved them for His glory and that if they could exercise faith in Him, they could be healed. Beyond this, they said God would never allow any sickness that would be above their strength to overcome them even though they don’t survive them most times.
Satan: Who is in control here? (Satan is furious and raging. The other council members take a bow). God or myself? Do you want me to chain you up forever? Why do you seek to intimidate me? You are a bloody traitor.
Affliction: Not so my lord. My laboratory is working on releasing nothing less than eight to ten incurable diseases each year.
Satan: That’s still too small.
Affliction: We actually release more than that number annually. The Westernside have a way of finding solutions to most of them. Their preventive measures could be as high as ninety percent effective; so that we’re left with only a few major incurable ailments at the end of each year.
Satan: You can deceive humanity, not me.
Affliction: Not so my lord. AIDS is one of them. Others are Cancer, Diabetes, Stroke, Parkinson Disease, Heart Failure, SARS etc.
Satan: That’s been long ago.
Affliction: Yes, but, I introduced SARS and AIDS. Man can only manage them. They can’t cure them.
Satan: You need to be wise. Consult with Temptation. Let him work with you. Liaise with him to make men break God’s word and sin. This would create the necessary opening for greater affliction. It will even make the existing diseases more powerful. Learn the secret – sin makes sickness powerful, plenty of sins make sicknesses complicated and death to easily occur.
Affliction: We’ve achieved one success though. All of the newly introduced incurable diseases are now being released with contagious elements. Unlike cancer, diabetes, and most other incurable diseases, when you contract the newly released ones, you become a victim. As I mentioned earlier, SARS and AIDS have contagious elements.
I’m not trying to apportion blames, rather, I’m only highlighting our obstacles. More drugs are being manufactured to deal with diseases. I must report here that Christians are praying more and many of them have now started chewing Divine Health Tablets. One scripture reading a day keeps them healthy for at least one day. It’s also called Children’s Bread. This bread is baked in the word of God. God’s people have learnt to eat it very often.
Satan: Stupid fellow. If a wall cannot allow you passage, why not jump over it? Leave those Christians for sometime. Sooner or later they’ll forget themselves. Focus on and afflict the unbelieving.
Affliction: Many of the unbelievers are yet ignorant. But a few have learnt to eat from the crumbs that fall from God’s Children’s tables.
Satan: I see. You appear to need the services of Unbelief. You see, you need to take from men that which they hold fast to in order to break their guard. Those who hold fast to what they believe must be attacked by Unbelief. If it doesn’t work get False Doctrine to try aerial attacks. I’ll order Leviathan to release Unbelief and False Doctrine to you immediately after this meeting. You must commence work a.s.a.p. When men live long, they have more time to repent and rescue their souls from hell. I won’t condone it.
Affliction: Your highness, we haven’t relaxed at all. Look at world mortality rate. It has increased considerably and Acrifa is at an all-time high. It’s still relatively lower in the Westernside but we’ll introduce and increase incurable but only manageable diseases to the Westernside first, before it spreads to the Thirdside.
Satan: Make me happy some more.
Affliction: We’ve adopted a method. We wish to carry out rapid and intense attacks on family heads. We believe that when you strike a shepherd, his sheep will scatter. We’ve had some success in Acrifa. Fathers, and in a few cases mothers, don’t live up to age fifty before we afflict and knock them. This enables us to break up families and raise wayward children, who in turn fill the labour market, thereby increasing societal crime. A good setting for Abaddon you might say.
Satan: You appear to have concerned yourself with sicknesses only.
Affliction: Not so my lord. We’ve afflicted Acrifa and have overrun it entirely, irrevocably and hopelessly with poverty.
Satan: You boasted in a similar fashion during the regressive and depressive wars we fought over the Westernside. That project died prematurely. Look around today. Do they appear like they once suffered depression and recession?
Affliction: My lord. The magnitude of poverty we’ve unleashed on Acrifa is unprecedented. Greed and Selfishness have sent me some spirits to assist. We’ve ensured that their Poverty Alleviation Programmes are run by men and women that are controlled by Corruption, Greed and other spirits. LEPAD and ARB are make-belief Acrifa’s developmental initiatives. It’s to distract from more redemptive initiatives.
Poverty has positioned spirits in villages, towns and cities. Many of his men are in people’s homes. I can say for sure that eighty percent of homes in Acrifa are afflicted by Poverty. He’s not just residing in their homes and with the families; these spirits are transferred from generation to generation.
Greed and Selfishness are doing marvelously. They’ve performed creditably by ensuring that when God’s angels namely, Wealth and Health minister to humanity, Greed and Selfishness quickly intercept those benefits. Then, they put them in a few greedy and selfish heads to ensure that such blessings don’t spread.
Satan: Ummh! (He listens with more interest).
Affliction: I forgot to mention that Fake Drug is having a tough time presently. After doing so very well over the decades, he’s experiencing a hard time now. May be more strategically committed brainstorming will help him. Whatever, he has to be assisted. He’s worked so well to ensure that the afflicted remain helpless. I’ve suggested that he be more tactical by luring highly placed personalities into fake drugging. This will infiltrate and weaken the authorities. Although, right now, Fake Drug is very sick. He was severely wounded in the last battle over the coast of Acrifa; let’s hope he recovers quickly. Meanwhile, I’ve told Hard Drug to mind the duties left by Fake Drug, as well as his.
Satan: How about Hard Drug himself?
Affliction:: Hard Drug is losing steam in Acrifa and Centreast. He’s becoming less and less fashionable in these areas. Hard Drug finds Satmerica, Notmerica, and Euron better atmosphere to operate. Acrifa and Centreast are difficult terrains. Moral observance in Acrifa and Centreast is still very religious and medieval.
The new approach is this; Poverty is to withdraw his spirits from Satacrifa. This will boost Satacrifa’s economy, thereby allowing Economic Refugees from other parts of Acrifa to invade the country. While there, they’ll learn to use hard drugs by learning from the slaves of Drug Addiction and his legion. After some time, the Economic Refugees will return to their various countries and spread the vice.
Satan: Brilliant! Brilliant!! But don’t lose focus of sicknesses. And ensure you give equal attention to drug addiction, since it’s a good avenue for physical afflictions and moral and mental imbalances.
Affliction:: We are also trying to re-enact the feat we achieved not too long ago with Chicken Pox, Small Pox, Malaria, Dysentery, Tetanus and so forth. The difference is that instead of using micro-organisms as parasites or germs only in the spiritual realm, we are also using Demons and real Spirits to afflict people. They have instructions to afflict humanity with Cancer, Stroke, Ulcer, Diabetes, Parkinson and so forth, at will. These Parasidemons can’t be viewed through microscopes and no medicine can ever cure the ailments they represent, unless they exercise faith in God.
Satan: I see.
Affliction: Evil customs have become veritable tools in our hands against Acrifa. I mean female genital mutilation. This is a good and free source of human blood acquisition. Although the quantity is very little, it nonetheless is appreciable, given the fact that it is unsolicited. Custom and Tradition and their Spirits are losing ground to God’s angels, namely, Modernity and Civilisation. Evil Custom and Tradition have formed an alliance with Religion in order to deal with God’s angels of Modernity and Civilisation. If they can work together, it will be very difficult for humanity to be free from their bondage.
Ignorance has combined well with Custom and Tradition to make genital mutilation appear a decent and reasonable observance. Although, its practice has dwindled considerably, it still thrives at the grassroots and in some major Acrifan towns and cities.
Satan: You need to also broaden your focus on those Christians. When afflicting them, ensure that you afflict every area of their lives. Afflict their families, finances, faith and whatever else you can lay a hold on.
Affliction:: Barrenness is doing a good work. I have told him to station at least one spirit against every newlywed couple. The job is to ensure that newlyweds have problems with child bearing. When they fail to achieve this, they ought to ensure that those who eventually conceive are attacked throughout conception. So that out of every ten pregnancies, one or two children are killed at birth.
Satan: Prayerlessness should work closely with you.
Affliction: Thank you for getting the point. I mean, I bring many afflictions upon the righteous. But their Lord has been delivering them from all of them because of their prayers. It’s really important that I work with Prayerlessness. It’s also necessary to allow Prayerlessness to work with Abaddon. Because naturally, during conflicts and wars, men and women are given to prayers.
I believe I need Prayerlessness and Faithlessness in my patrol team. They’re to lead twenty four hours surveillance from pole to pole, over and across the equator, to and from the ends of the earth, wherever human life exist.
I hope I won’t be asking for too much if I request that Discouragement and Bitterness work with me also? Our duties are complementary. Sometime ago, when you and I went to the Distant East to afflict Job, you remember we left Discouragement and Regrets behind to work on Job’s philosophy. And we made them hide themselves inside Job’s friends. As for Bitterness, he made himself comfortable inside of Job’s wife.
Satan: This has been my concern really. I wanted to mention the need to work more with Discouragement, Bitterness and Impatience. God’s angels, namely, Long-Suffering and Endurance have overfed those Believers with the Fruits of the Spirit. If we don’t work well against their emotions, then we can’t get them to sin on impulse. You have my permission though. Your mission is important to my projects. Only make sure you guide against idleness.
Affliction: You wait and see. I’ll manifest as a great fight of affliction. I’ll move as a mighty burning furnace against those Believers. I’ll cripple their faith as I tried against Shadrach, and his brothers. Every time they listen to God’s word, I’ll plant thorns that will choke the word of God they hear, so that it doesn’t even germinate, let alone flourish. I’ll invade Christian homes with persecution, poverty and sickness, so that they will appear like cords around the homes, – binding cords of afflictions. I’ll tie persecution to poverty. I’ll tie bad luck to persecution and frustration to bad luck. I’ll tie discouragement to frustration and backsliding will do well to stick with discouragement in the lives of the Christians. So that as they are solving one problem, they are having another to deal with.
Satan: Do you remember what you did to the Hebrew children when they were in Egypt? What you haven’t mentioned yet is how you intend to make the Spirit of Burden to finish them off.
Afflictions: Yes, I remember the Hebrew children under Pharaoh in Egypt. I made them carry family burdens they couldn’t stand. While under burden, they were told to look for straws themselves and were expected to finish their normal daily jobs. As if that wasn’t enough, I made sure every male child was slaughtered. I made them build Rameses and then isolated them in Goshen. I made whips which I put in the hands of soldiers who flogged and rubbed in their afflictions. My lord, I’ll make them believe it is God that is afflicting them. I’ll make them regret the day they were born. They’ll think that affliction springs forth from the dust or that trouble springs up from the ground. That is, they’d think them natural, thereby making me untouchable and unnoticeable.
I’ve made a list of Christians who haven’t been visited by Evilday. Evilday has a computerised database on them already. Some Christians have redeemed the time set for their visitation by praying, thereby neutralising the evil cloud that Evilday placed over their homes. Evilday will repeat his visits. He’ll never give up. I have detailed Lightaffliction also to try and make incursions where us the tougher ones have failed for the moment.
Satan: You must strike their shepherds and pastors also.
Affliction: Don’t be bothered my lord. You see, the pastors are easier to deal with. They encourage others. But no one encourages them. Self-Righteousness is doing a marvelous job on them. They don’t voice their problems so that their followers don’t think of them as weak. You know they aren’t supposed to have problems; they are supposed to be above all problems.
We’ve already projected sicknesses against some of them. If they suffer personal problems they can’t solve, they aren’t likely to have enough faith and boldness to deal with the problems of their followers.
Satan: Oh wait a minute. What is that I hear? (Satan taps his laptop control button and observes in silence and with interest).
(There is the noise of commotion elsewhere. Satan must excuse himself from the Council Meeting. Others stare but must all wait; he zooms off towards the direction of the noise. He notices two angels of God contending with two demons over a soul. Satan joins in the altercation. Swords are drawn; the air is stiff and tense as lesser Spirits escape for dear live. The venue is at the entrance of a dark tunnel leading into hell).
Evil Escorts: Master, this soul is ours. He died a sinner even though he was a Christian. His sin was lustful thoughts. He loved lustful imaginations while on earth and he nurtured it.
Satan: Since this is so, why are you being challenged as if we stole the soul? Isn’t he rightfully ours? (Satan addresses God’s angels). Look here, you Intruders go and tell your God that this soul belongs to me and I worked hard for him. Go and work for yours.
Lost Soul: Don’t touch me like that. I’m a Christian. You can’t take me to hell. I don’t belong there.
Evil Escorts: When you get to hell, you won’t have the temerity to talk like you do now. (They address each other). Let’s take him in chains. Put a shackle on his legs.
Satan: Throw him into the fire.
Intruders: Stop! Don’t throw him in. You will pay dearly. You know better than to incur God’s wrath.
Satan: (Satan interjects). But the man was living with lust in his heart. Although, he was not committing the sin physically, he always imagined it.
Intruders: You’re right. God is not a man that He should lie.
Satan: If you know so, why then do you stop me from claiming my soul?
Intruders: He won’t go to hell.
Satan: This is unjust. I can as well walk into Heaven myself. Sin is sin. A sinner is a sinner.
Intruders: Neither will he come to Heaven.
Satan: You must be confused, both of you, and your God.
Intruders: Look down.
Satan: (Looks in the pointed direction). So?
Intruders: His wife is a woman of faith. She has prayed over her husband’s corpse for about eight hours now.
Satan: (He laughs in an ugly manner). When did lengthy prayers begin to raise the dead?
Intruders: God responds to the faith of importunate seekers.
Satan: I don’t get your meaning. (Turns to his Evil Escorts). Move this fellow immediately.
Intruders: (They quote a scripture). It is written. Satan believes in God and he trembles.
(Satan escapes by vanishing. He leaves a trail of smoke behind).
Intruders: (They break the chains off the man). Go and tell what great love you’ve experienced.
(The Intruders release him from the Evil Escorts. The Escorts are chained and taken captive.)
THIRD REPORT: Temptation
(Satan re-appears at the Council Meeting, he tries to look unruffled, but he is betrayed by his fury).
Satan: You see what I have just experienced out there? If Temptation doesn’t do his job well, all other Spirits won’t succeed at theirs. An average Christian is scared of Temptation and Temptation doesn’t even know it. The more righteous and serious a Christian is, the more he or she is to be tempted and tried. Temptation, you must draw close to those who draw near to God. I personally tempted Christ because He was so loved by God.
Temptation: I have six hundred Chief Spirits working in my team. I’ll dwell more on the activities of the Spirits that make up my inner circle. They’re the three Spirits in charge of Money, Women and Pride. I contend against the Word of God by myself. You know how sharp the Word of God can be. All my six hundred Chiefs have permanent scars, owing to the sharpness and cutting edge of the Word of God. Those Christians do not realise that the Word that appears to them so soothing; which they consider good news, is not only actual sword in the spirit realm against us, but also bad news. When they begin to quote it to our hearing, they remind us of our hopeless state and pending doom. They can be so tormenting my lord. Beyond being sharp as a sword, the Word of God is very quick. As soon as it touches the ground and before you know it, it has germinated. Once it drops on a man’s soul, it takes root and grows so fast. You’d need to spend sleepless nights unearthing the effect of the Word. I’ve stepped up efforts at dealing with the Christians who act promptly as soon as God speaks. It can be difficult to catch up with them the way they go. But it is a different thing with those who do not act promptly when God speaks to them. Once there is a delay, we try to make them disbelieve or forget what they heard.
Satan: I feel like throwing you into the furnace of fire before your time. You idiot. Why do you whine over your state? No wonder you have achieved so little over the centuries. If you could handle Christ properly immediately after His forty days fast, I needn’t have been involved. You failed to fell him; that’s why I came in. You were the one who made me fail because you put the wrong foot first. That’s why we’re having problems now. Tell me of your success and take care of your failures yourself. I want results and not your tales of woe.
Temptation: What I’ve tried to do is to see where the Word of God is active and powerful. It can be a very daunting move. But once I can identify the Word’s thriving areas, I move in to quell its effects. I have to work round the clock. Once the sower gets about sowing the good seed, I just watch him waste his time and as soon as he leaves, I move in to uproot his seed and replace it with mine. I use two methods. The first and most frequently used is internal temptation and the other is external temptation. A lot of times though, I employ both methods because they complement each other. Your worship, you remember that I advised you that we should try and tempt Christ using the internal temptation method, but you preferred the external method. You said that the internal style failed on Him from the time He started being accountable for His deeds up until then. I’ve since learnt that it is more effective to tempt people internally. The major advantage of this is that most times they don’t know they’re being tempted, so they play along.
This is the reason we’ve had great success with a number of atheist, those who don’t believe that either God or Satan exist.
Satan: You can’t be exonerated. Didn’t I use external temptation on the first woman Eve? I appeared in a bodily shape to her and spoke to her. Didn’t it pay off? I don’t have time for this whispering tempting method you call internal temptation. However, I demand results, whatever the method. How could you expect me to perform your duties? What excuses do you now give? Wasn’t Christ tempted in all things and in all manner using the internal method after the first one failed?
Temptation: The internal method has enabled us to chain men and women who don’t know or care about the Word of God. They don’t realise that the Word of God is a light that exposes our wiles, tricks, and schemings. Take a look at the Angel of God in charge of blessings. He has a burden of blessings meant for Christians who endure temptations but has not been able to unload the blessings. Many Christians cannot endure temptation. Once I put a little pressure they give up. When Christ came out victorious after we tempted Him, angels came to minister God’s blessings to Him.
That same Angels are laden with Crowns of Life, which God promised those who’ll overcome trials. The reason this is so your worship, is because we’ve had good success and we’ve performed our duties well. The Christians of today cannot even stand fiery trials, the like of which Shadrach and his Hebrew brothers withstood. It is effective enough to try them with Money. Many Christians will throw away their cloak of Christianity once you entice them with little money. As you well know, we have two categories of humans we tempt. They’re the Christians and the Unbelievers. Both categories are tempted generally and randomly. For the Christians, I’ve seen and considered it very effective to attach or assign spirits to each of them. There’s no Christian that isn’t being monitored or watched. These types of Spirits are known as Stumbling Blocks and Besetting Spirits. If you want to trap Christians, you must ensure you watch them carefully and once they are off-guard, you roll a stumbling block in their path.
Their duty is to cause the believers to stumble and to sin. They’ve been asked to manifest in various ways by capitalising on their weaknesses. Once a Christian has anger for instance as their weakness, a Stumbling Block and Besetting Spirit are detailed to ensure that he or she stumbles, falls and dies nurturing anger. I’m sure you remember what we did to Moses.
For some Christians it may be adultery or fornication. For others it may even be unforgiveness or the lack of faith in God.
Satan: Let me see the register of all the barren women in the world. (He receives it from Wickedness). There’s this particular woman that has been barren for twenty one years. Why is she still going on strong? She has prayed more than before in the last three months. To worsen my concern, six Angels from God have visited her twice within the three months. You’re the head of all Elementary Spirits. Ensure you monitor her and let me have a report. If she conceives, her testimony will shake the foundation of this Kingdom because of how celebrated her barrenness has been. You know she is very famous. Liaise with Prayerlessness, Affliction and Doubt to bring her down. You failed with Mummy Sarah, Father Abraham’s wife. Even though you did your best to push her into menopause. It was really the Spirit of Death that failed to perform his duties. He should have killed her before she was seventy years. And Father Abraham before he was eighty five years old. But he failed.
Affliction: (Affliction interjects). I saw two angels from God, Fruitfulness was one of them, the one who was in charge of the Garden of Eden before the fall of man, although the fall was really man’s emancipation. I saw him with Prosperity entering the Church of Redemptive Prayers (CRP) in Acrifa.
Satan: Which parish. Be specific. You know those Pests proliferate fast.
Affliction: Yes, Fruitfulness and Prosperity entered the parish at Marine Close. My worry is, I hope they haven’t come to visit and to bless any of the fifty of the eighty two families attending that branch?
Temptation: I’ve stricken them with Poverty who is stationed right on their businesses to drive away prospective customers. It is also stationed at their homes to prevent those Angels from intrusion. I observed all these as I was inspecting my regiment last week. Wickedness must investigate and gather intelligence on this Church of Redemptive Prayers.
(Satan turns to wickedness)
Satan: Let’s hear from wickedness now.
FOURTH REPORT: Wickedness
Wickedness: (Wickedness observes, as he begins his report). I can almost tell you here and now that those families will never be free from Poverty. I have locked their future and thrown the key away deep in the bottom of the Red Sea.
Satan: You fool. You sure haven’t heard about Holy Ghost Fire. You’d turn up here sooner than later with a roasted face. Idiot. I’ve told you to be pro-active.
Wickedness: You’re right my king, I’ll hold meetings with the spirits that have controlled those families for over two thousand years now and we shall look for ways to prevent Fruitfulness and Prosperity from delivering the blessings they brought from God.
Satan: What’s happening in the Blood Market (BM)?
Wickedness: A lot is happening now my king. Witches and Wizards are the leading duo at the floor of the Blood Exchange. They supply more of the most sought after blood groups. Most other blood groups are less sought after. The blood of armed robbers for instance, has flooded the Blood Market because no one is buying it. It is said that it has the propensity to make the recipients users weak in their spirit bodies. My Witches and Wizards are indomitable spirits and you know that they’re domesticated, although we have quite a lot of them working also on the highways. They’ve vowed to deal with those careless humans who drive through their covens. Some of them actually have their covens right on the highways. Such highways record higher accident rate weekly. The domestic witches and wizards have their activities as old as the time of the fall of man. They’ve mastered their skills well. As I said, they’ve taken over homes in the villages, towns and cities. Annually, we intend to recruit and initiate witch-children numbering one point five million on earth. This is an increase of twenty percent over what it used to be. It’s easier to deal with child witches than with adult witches. They don’t question authority. Sentimental and family attachments are not in their reckoning, because they are infants and are ignorant of the consequences of their actions. Even if they are told to bring their parents to be slaughtered and eaten, they’d probably ask whether you also require their brothers and sisters also.
Satan: Initiating them can be a very difficult task.
Wickedness: Once again, you’re correct my king. One easy way we do it however is to give the children cookies and sweets. They don’t usually refuse once they are alone and separate from their parents. This is the old method really, but it still works. The second method, which is just as old but more effective, is to do it when they are under conception. Careless and ignorant pregnant women have fallen victims to this trap.
The third method produces little result but is equally effective. Some of our members who are nannies and babysitters are helping to initiate babies. Parents come to drop babies with them from morning till late afternoon. Some of the toddlers are already attending our meetings.
They don’t contribute at meetings, but they observe. Many of the toddlers enjoy the company of Mermaid Spirits and as a result, a lot of them grow up enlisting as Marine Agents. By the time these toddlers grow to adulthood, the females amongst them would have had spiritual babies in the water without knowing this physically. As a matter of fact, by the time they become teenagers they’d have had two or three children in the aquatic realm.
Satan: Post-Modernism has been working with Promiscuity and Immorality, what do we have in this regard?
Wickedness: The Queen of the Coast has taken control of all the coastal areas on earth. You know that a lot of world capitals are located near the sea, which makes the movement of attractive ladies straight from under water very easy. We are now short of female spirits. We’ve requested for hermaphrodemons and demon amphibians, who can also change into beautiful girls to join us in this assault against men who have little self-control.
Satan: Move them against church leaders. I’ve told you to always aim to strike the shepherds, since doing this would naturally scatter their flock.
Wickedness: There are eight hundred and twenty eight thousand pastors under our control on the earth. The pastors have been involved at one time or the other in illicit relationships. They’ve had sex outside wedlock. Those who haven’t married are keeping secret girlfriends and boyfriends with whom they satisfy their sexual desires. We’ve put them in spiritual chains and they’re our spiritual prisoners. Yes our prisoners!!! We are also trying to set up pastors that are having one form of quarrel or the other with their wives. Spirits are working against them to make them toy with the idea of engagingin extramarital relationships.
Satan: The population of prostitutes is dwindling.
Wickedness: Notmerica, Atly and most of Acrifa are still under our control. Some of their leaders who campaign against prostitution are homosexuals, bisexuals or are patronising the prostitutes themselves. They’re only paying lip service. A lot of their cabinet members also patronise prostitutes under cover of the dark. When some of them travel out of station, they fling caution to the wind and go after professional prostitutes. Some of the eight hundred and twenty eight thousand pastors share the same hotels with the leaders I’m referring to when they travel out of station. Let’s now initiate our new convert as I end my session.
(They move into the initiation room. Satan and Wickedness discuss in whispers and the new Initiate looks on. Satan addresses the Initiate).
Satan: In this initiation you must shed blood, to do so, let me demonstrate what I mean to you and how to crush your victims.
(Satan waves his cloak around in his front, a basin of water and a mirror appear. He looks into the water, it doesn’t reflect his image. He then beckons on the Initiate to also come and look into the basin).
Initiate: I can see myself in there.
Satan:: Not only yourself. You can see whomever you wish to kill. Anyone you don’t like, you can see and eliminate.
Initiate: You mean I can kill just anybody.
Satan: Well, yes. Those Christians may prove a little difficult. But kill them if you can.
Initiate: I have a lot as enemies.
Satan: You have to be careful when you deal with them.
Initiate: Thanks for your care and concern.
Satan:: Not that I care. I don’t really; I’m only concerned about what trouble you might bring on this Kingdom.
Initiate: I see.
Satan: You have more to see. Now, call up any one you hate and wish dead.
Initiate: (In thoughts). This is an opportunity to destroy one of my neighbours. Her prayers have caused me nightmares.
Satan: We’re waiting.
Initiate: (Suddenly recovers herself). Oh let me call up Mrs. Nephi.
Satan: (As she does). Be ready to stab her as soon as her image appears on the water. Once you stab the reflection in the water, she will die physically wherever she is on earth. (Turns to an aid). Give her a dagger.
(The Initiate begins to yell)
Initiate: Mrs. Nephi! Mrs. Nephi!! Mrs. Nephi!!!
(Suddenly there is earthquake, thunder, fire and smoke occurring in quick succession. The basin is consumed. The place is engulfed by fire and confusion sets in. Satan makes a quick dash to safety. Other observers for dear live. The Initiate is dumbfounded. She doesn’t know whether to join her masters in their flight for cover or stay back and face this strange fire. While she remains undecided, she is hit and felled by a thunderbolt. It has been two days (by human calculation), since this incident. Satan is yet to return from his flight. He eventually does and comes in, talking tough).
Satan: Let this be the last time you’ll act foolishly. You’re hereby sentenced to seclusion. And you’ll have to starve for thirty three days starting from tomorrow. In addition, you’d be required to submit one of your offspring as sacrifice to atone for your foolish act.
Initiate: I beg for your pardon and for mercy your highness.
Satan: Mercy isn’t a word in the spirit realms. It’s an Angel’s. And that Angel doesn’t belong here. He’s of another Realm – heaven. You must serve your punishment. Stand aside and be ready to call up another enemy you wish dead.
Initiate: (The Initiate calls up a church goer. The victim doesn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, although, she is a regular church goer. She yells again)
Chechen! Chechen!! Chechen!!!
She appears in the water and the glass at once.
Satan: Strike the glass now!!
Initiate: She strikes.
Satan: Well done.
(Elsewhere, Chechen is taken ill. Her temperature rises and is promptly administered first aid. But she doesn’t respond. Chechen passes away. Her silver cord is broken. She dies).
(Back in the coven, the water basin turns to blood. A communion holds. Chechen’s blood is served. The blood of a victim must be used for this initiation; this time around it is the blood of Chechen. Only God knows whose turn it will be next time and it is inevitable).
(Satan addresses Hell Warder).
Satan: Tell me what’s been happening in hell?
(This warder is tall and has on a dark green military uniform and a black beret on his head).
FIFTH REPORT: Hell Warder
(Satan addresses hell Warder)
Satan: Tell me what’s been happening in hell?
(This warder is tall and has on a dark green military uniform and a black beret on his head).
Hell Warder: You promised that you’d help me to mend and restore the broken wings and bones of many of my most efficient demons. Many of them had their wings broken when they were resisted and tried to flee from Christians. Others had their wings clipped when the Sword of the Spirit was used against them. Yet others were bound and cast out by the Christians and as they fell, they landed on their backs, breaking their wings. Those that were bound were tied with strings so firmly that the strings broke their skins and cracked their bones beyond remedy. Today, many of them can’t fly any longer and they find it difficult to get to their duty posts. Some crippled demons have been left redundant. We’re still looking forward to your fulfilling this promise sir.
Satan: Physician, heal thyself.
Hell Warder: I don’t get your meaning.
Satan: You heard me. Move on to something else.
Hell Warder: I see. The Civil Engineering Department has a heavy task on its hands. Hell is now very congested. We’re trying to expand the place. There are over a hundred prisoners in each of the cells originally designed to take six prisoners.
Satan: When did you turn a humanist? Let those fellows cramp together and don’t moan over their comfort.
Hell Warder: Not so my commander. It is required that we expand, so that our work as warders will be easier. When we bring out prisoners for torment and torture, it’s sometimes difficult to reach many of them when it is their turn to be drilled. Beyond this, humanity has responded favourably to our temptations. They conduct themselves quite sinfully and when they die, you know that they must come here. How are we to welcome and receive them? They certainly can’t stand on top of one another. And because human needs have become insatiable, we’ve had to enlarge Hell several times since Greed would certainly bring them here anyway. Also, because they’ll do anything for the love of money, women and pride.
We are also looking to construct another bridge between Hell and what used to be Paradise. Since we took over Paradise from the time the patriarchs Abraham, David and the rest of them left with Christ. Passage to that section of Hell has been difficult for demons, especially the wounded ones who no longer can use their wings.
Satan: I have reports that the demons that have been cast out of the earth and from within men, women, animals and trees have also contributed to the congestion in Hell.
Hell Warder: That’s not untrue. Most of them are wounded and can’t be sent back to earth for combat immediately.
Satan: Replace them quickly. Release the same number of casualties we have back to earth. If you don’t replace them and Christians continue to bind and cast out demons, in a month’s time, we’d be short of combatants and then revival will take place. People will be liberated, socio-political problems will reduce, and peace will reign. Do something immediately!!!
Let the wounded demons look for men and women to possess. If they can’t achieve that, let them squat with the demons who have possessed people already and hang out with them, while looking out for other opportunities.
Hell Warder: What do we do about the wounded soldiers? Where do we keep them in the meantime? That is, until they can get men and women to possess
Satan: Threaten them!! I say Threaten them!!! Tell them if they don’t recover quickly, they’d be sent back to the hottest part of the earth’s wars. The forefront of the battle, where there are Christian crusades, camp meetings, revivals and conventions.
So much light is permeating hell through the earth’s crust. Inform the engineers of this observation. Absolute darkness must be maintained. Those prisoners didn’t do anything with the lights they had while alive and on earth. They don’t need any lights here in Hell.
Hell Warder: You are correct. The earth-cracks occur when a Christian dies and is buried in the earth. I really wonder why this allowed millions of people to escape, including King David. And those Christians can now talk to me anyhow, particularly the baby Christians amongst them. Christ disgraced me in front of my subjects; I will make his creatures hurt Him in return. I declare total war on humanity. The rage is on. Vengeance must be accomplished.
This happens, but it’s my observation that whenever a true Christian dies and the body is committed to earth, we usually know. I think it’s a kind of protest. It’s similar to the earth’s reaction when Jesus died on that day on the cross.
Satan: Are you saying that there isn’t solution to this problem? Are you such a defeatist?
Hell Warder: There’s no solution my commander.
Satan: I am worried about the number of people who now believe that there is Hell. If you can keep them ignorant, then it won’t be necessary for them to live their lives in such manner as to keep from coming to Hell.
Hell Warder: Oops! Well, recent statistics show that the number of men and women who believe that Hell exist has reduced by one hundred and twelve percent. We’re increasing the number of cults, churches, sects, societies and clubs that encourage the idea of the non-existence of Hell. They’ll believe there’s Hell only when they get here. Also, concerning Evil Escorts, we need more hands in the Department. As I earlier observed, the daily influx of humanity to Hell has increased owing to the improved activities of our colleagues. We’d need more Evil Escorts to force show-men and women the way into Hell.
Satan: I’m on a vindictive mission. You must increase the punishment on our Hell inmates. Vengeance, because I earned the authority and position I have over the earth. I struggled and paid heavily for it. My investments so far have not been worthwhile because of the foolishness of my Generals with respect to the death of Christ. If you people weren’t dumb you wouldn’t have crucified Him. That was the beginning of our woes. He died and came here and we had a party thinking that we had captured Him, only for you all to allow them to over- power you, and then, you
Hell Warder: Since Christ came here to take the keys of Hell and Death away, security situation has been very loose, so that anyone of God’s Angels can just come in here to punish errant demons.
Furthermore, the quantity of fuel required to keep the fires of Hell burning has to be increased. Human flesh performs better as fuel. Once dehydrated, they burn longer. We also need more worms to help us torture inmates. There aren’t enough demons available to torment them, increasing the worms will help tremendously. We want to ensure that there is no respite for the prisoners. This is your desire my Commander.
Satan: I’ll do just that. I’ve told you to increase the torment on those who were once preachers and backslided, those who preached against me and cast out my demons. Double the worms.
Hell Warder: The sections reserved for backslidden Christians are the hottest parts in Hell. This can be verified from the wailing and noise of despair coming from the tormented in that part of Hell.
Satan: Before we bring this meeting to a close, last week I directed you to release six hundred and sixty-six new demon spirits from Hell to earth weekly. You were required to induct them. Are you ready to present them now?
Hell Warder: Yes my Commander. They now await your order to bring them in here for commissioning.
(At the wave of his left hand, Satan collapses the walls surrounding the meeting room. The new walls reveal two doors just ahead and behind have been de-spirited in a matter of minutes as Satan continues to address them).
(Satan’s seat. The door ahead is massive. It slides to the left and to the right like the doors of an elevator. The door ahead has since opened and has revealed six hundred and sixty-six combatants. They do not have the looks you would expect; they are slim, attractive ladies and gentlemen. The clothes they have on are lovely and very expensive. The ladies appear like princesses and their male counterparts appear like princes. They’re of perfect demeanour and look too decent to associate with Satan).
(Satan’s appearance has since changed. No one noticed how or when it occurred, or when and how he turned his back on the six hundred and sixty-six selected combatants. Not even his Council Members know. Now dressed in a long robe and a dark cape to match, he emits an intense evil aura. The combatants take a bow. They cannot see the face of Satan. It is privilege enough to come into his presence. They chant, “Hail Satan, hail the boss”. Satan raises his hand to command a hush).
Satan: (After a long delicate silence, Satan speaks). I hate God. I hate all He stands for. I’m hungry for souls; we all are starving and thirsty for blood. You are my special strike force. You’ve been trained to upset God by overcoming His children. You are my sons and daughters. (Satan laughs wickedly and continues). Now, to remind you of my capabilities, I’m going to demonstrate what will happen to all of you if you do not obey me explicitly.
(Satan waves his arms ahead of him and the floor on which the combatants stand opens apart and they dropped into a hot pond of acid. The combatants’ flesh fall off. Satan’s laughter rends the air. He waves again and the acidic liquid instantly drains away. Large serpents emerge and swallow the helpless combatants one by one. They’re quickly vomited and left in very frail and unattractive looks).
These Spirits listen and obey me. We have one enemy we must all defeat, God with His Children. The best way to fight Him is to fight His children, by making them sin against Him. I did this to the generation that Moses brought out of Egypt. I frustrated God and He succeeded in taking only two people to the Promised Land. You are not allowed to be defeated. If you are defeated, I will make what you’ve just experienced perpetual. I am sending you on a suicide mission. Don’t surrender, if you do, don’t retreat or I’ll get you, deal with you and finish you off.
(Satan raises his hands again and draws a square in the air. Immediately, a massive movie screen unveils and on the screen is displayed pictures of common everyday places on earth. Satan points to the movie screen).
Go to these places, live and act like normal people. Deceive men and women and turn as many as you possibly can away from God. Invent sins and make men and women to commit them. Enter these nightclubs, stores, motels, hotels, bakeries, shops, banks, circuses, wedding ceremonies, churches, stadiums, disco clubs, restaurants, villages, cities, markets, shops, homes, government houses, highways, rivers and everywhere, unto the uttermost parts of the earth and do havoc upon humanity. You have no restrictions. Enter Heaven if you can, and fight!
I have given you all the power you need. You can change to a woman or a man. You can even change to an animal. You have the power to change to a plant or to disappear. You can look extremely beautiful or, if the occasion warrants, very old. You have no excuses whatsoever.
Above all, I want you to plunge humanity into a World War, through terrorism. Don’t just concentrate on spiritual terror. Make terror on humans a common occurrence. Increase death figures resulting from terrorism to tens and hundreds of people daily and ensure that your activities make newspaper headlines and breaking news on TV. Lure nations into wars by making them react against terrorists. This should eventually lead to a World War.
Do everything to discourage dialogue between governments and rebels, especially in the Third World countries; also between people of different religions. I make people’s nightmares realities. I don’t read news, I make news. I make tomorrow’s news today. I allow the very things that nations fear to come upon them. You must all emulate me. Now Depart!!!.
(Instantly, the ceiling above them slides open like a spread sheet. The combatants fly out swiftly unto the earth. Satan roars like a lion).
I am hurt. I am enraged. I must avenge and defeat God. He planned a coup against me. See my strike force, they will do my will, they won’t dare disobey me.
(The screen reveals the combatants as they are seen carrying out their commission. Satan laughs on. There is an earthquake, as he disappears in a puff of smoke, leaving his officers to bow in fear while the earth sleeps on, quite oblivious of this ageless brigandage).
Mary Baxter’s “Divine Revelation of Hell” and Howard O. Pittman’s “Demons -An Eyewitness Account” were helpful to this work.
