Wickedness has taken over in the name of liberation and Democracy!!

Matthew 12:45 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
There have been many news articles in recent days about the declining situation is Iraq as well as other countries that have been “Democratized” by the Coalition forces. I have often thought of the above scripture and how it parallels the situation in Iraq, and can also pertain to Libya, Afghanistan, Egypt, Syria or anywhere else we have went in and removed the Evil Spirit in control. When good meaning people cast demons out of a person, or Dictators from countries, when they don’t know what they are doing, WILL make the end result worse then it was, as we now see is the situation in the Middle East.
Here are a few Headlines that are the catalyst for this writing;
- Most Of Iraq Has Fallen And Now Under Control Of Islamic Insurgents
- Iraq Battles Islamists in Saddam’s Hometown, 80 Miles From Baghdad
- Iraq crisis: Baghdad prepares for the worst as Islamist militants vow to capture the city
- It was better to live in Iraq under Saddam; The country has begun to slip into anarchy, but it wasn’t always like this. It used to be a much happier and safer place to live
Although this scripture pertains to a demon possessed person, and having those foul evil spirits cast out, it can pertain to a nation such is the case with Iraq at the present time. Let’s break this scripture down and compare it to Iraq and other countries we have supposedly “liberated”!
“ When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none”
The objective of an Evil Spirit, Demon, devils, or whatever you choose to label it, is to Possess or Inhabit either a Human or Animal. I will not address the animal possession at this time but there are examples in the Bible that confirm evil spirits can enter into an animal. Matthew 8:31 is an example of demons going into animals! There, they can try to cause as much havoc as they can to destroy a person with the end result being to keep them from God and the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. They know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and are terrified of that name and being cast out.
Matthew 8:28-32 And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.
Demons are not happy wandering around and are seeking rest by possessing someone. They are happy when they are causing pain and conflict, so when they get cast out of someone, they go looking around for someone else to possess.
Here is where the problem lies. If the space that those Demons occupied is NOT filled with the Spirit of God, The Holy Spirit, and that happens when a person is Born Again, that being He or She has realized He or She is a sinner, Repented of those sins and has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord Savior, those Demons WILL return!
Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
Meaning nothing has replaced them and they are free to return, which they will do as there is no hindrance or protection. That protection is the Holy Spirit and the fact the person is now a child of God.
“Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”
While wandering around he picks up some of his evil buddies and invites them to come back to his house and party seeing there is no one there now to keep them in line and, can do even more destruction and create more havoc! Can you see the parallel to the situation in Iraq? I am not saying that all was well in Iraq while Saddam was in control, But he did keep all of the Other Evil Devils some what in check. Incidentally, demons will fight each other and amongst themselves, Just as the Sunnis and Shiites fight each other when not joining together to fight Jihad against Jews and any other none Muslim!
There is a Military Style Hierarchy in the realm of Lucifer, (see Principalities, Powers and Spiritual wickedness in High places) and a very powerful Evil Prince (fallen angel) over that area of the World. The Prince of Persia which happens to be current Iran and in Bible days INCLUDED IRAQ!! In Daniel 10 we are given the account of Michael the Arch-Angel being hindered by the prince of Persia. That prince being in reference to a Principality or Power, a fallen angel under Lucifer’s command.
Daniel 10:12-13 and 20 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come.
In this case that first Evil Spirit would be Saddam Hussein being ousted, (cast out) from power by the Coalition forces lead by the United States. Saddam did not come back, and he can’t as he is being held in Hell awaiting the Great White Throne Judgment when at that time he will be cast into the lake of fire. Those Demons inhabiting Saddam left abruptly when he was hanged and went about “seeking rest”, and I am sure they, the demons, did not have to look long for a willing Muslim to possess!
Yes Saddam was a wicked evil man and in fact, (following from Wikipedia) Saddam Hussein considered himself to be the reincarnation of Nebuchadnezzar and had the inscription “To King Nebuchadnezzar in the reign of Saddam Hussein” inscribed on bricks inserted into the walls of the ancient city of Babylon during a reconstruction project he initiated; he named one of his Republican Guards divisions after Nebuchadnezzar.
Nebuchadnezzar was the King of Babylon. He had a dream that “disturb him deeply” (Daniel 2:1-3). He asked sorcerers, fortune tellers, and several other psychics at that time to interpret the dream for him. No one could interpret it for him besides Daniel. Daniel predicted that God was telling the king that he would be removed from his kingdom for 7 years because of his sins and he would live amongst the animals as an ox does. His dream did come true and Nebuchadnezzar believed himself that he was an ox. He ate grass and lived out of his element. In the 7th year of his delusional state his “reason returned” to him and he began to praise God.
Like the king, Saddam was removed from power and if you remember the news, pictures and video, he was hauled out of a hole in the ground looking like a skid row homeless drunkard! So I suppose Saddam’s wish to be like Nebuchadnezzar became reality. Enough on Saddam.
Since his ouster many factions have been trying to gain control. Just as scripture states that when the demons go out and then come back, it is worse then it was in the beginning. We are seeing the prophecy of this scripture coming to pass in Iraq and really in all of the Middle East. Bad guys are ousted and the ones that take their place are worse.
Look at the turmoil in Egypt. Look at what has happened in Libya. Look at Afghanistan. The Taliban although very evil and oppressive, pretty much had the poppy growing reduced to almost nothing. After the ousting, the US military moved in and it is now the number one cash crop being guarded and shipped into the U.S. on C-130 transports by the ton, and is being peddled by the very ones who went on a Liberation campaign! So here again we have a confirmation of it being worse after the First Evil was Cast Out. More wickedness moved right on in, in the name of liberation and Democracy!!
Which is better in your opinion. Saddam in Iraq, Gaddafi in Libya, or Assad in Syria or ISIS all over the middle East and in other countries murdering?
The only way for the situation to be resolved in the Middle East or anywhere around the world for that matter, is for men to turn from their wicked ways and turn to the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ. There are Principalities, Powers and Spiritual wickedness in High places that are at work directing mans actions in every part of the world. They are at work in government, they are at work in the entertainment industry, they are at work in the world financial system, and in Religion in particular.
The sad fact is Lucifer has gained a stronghold in what is considered Christianity. He is the author and leader of many Cult like denominations and beliefs. As I have stated in many of the articles I have written, True Christianity is a relationship with Jesus Christ and him alone. All other junk is just man-made religion.
Unfortunately the masses will not turn from their wicked ways and the battle of Armageddon will take place in the very near future. At that time all of the fighting and all of these Evil Spirits will be stopped. Until then we must do our best to tell people how the can be set free and have eternal life! You can be free here’s how.
