Ice Bucket Ritual, 9/4/14

Allow me to comment on this ice bucket challenge that is all the rage. First let me lay a foundation to what is going on here. It is vital that we understand how the devil works. He does not always come out all tooth and nails and show himself to be the vicious monster that he truly is. In fact he rarely if ever does. Indeed he is master illusion artist that is very adroit at crafting things that look good:

2 Corinthians 11:14 [Full Chapter]
... For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

We see this from the very beginning of the history of his deception of mankind in the garden of Eden. God had planted a tree and told Adam not to eat of it:

Genesis 2:16-17New King James Version (NKJV)
16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of GOOD and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

Satan deceived Eve and convinced her to eat of the fruit of the the tree of the knowledge of GOOD and evil:

Genesis 3:6New King James Version (NKJV)
6 So when the woman saw that the tree was GOOD for food, that it was PLEASANT to the eyes, and a tree DESIRABLE to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.

So we see that Satan used 'GOODNESS' as a means to deceive Eve and lead her and Adam astray and thereby to gain authority over all the earth and bring death and destruction into it. All the pain, war, and disease and death that has aver happened in the world has come because of this fateful decision by Adam and Eve. It happened when they ALLOWED themselves to be deceived by Sagtan pretending to offer something 'GOOD.'

We must learn to be wise and discerning about this way that the enemy works and not allow ourselves to be led into something that is a work of darkness just because it comes with a false cloak of 'goodness.'

The ice bucket challenge seems to be a 'good' thing at first glance because it purports to be a method of raising money to provide for seeking to help those with the awful disease of ALS. Truly all ALS sufferers need our compassion. But unfortunately there is an evil agenda at work in this fad.

The bathing of oneself in ice water is actually an old Satanic ritual practiced by the highest levels of the black 'art ' of Sanse voodoo. In our hemisphere Sanse is practice in Haiti and is likely rooted in ancient African witchcraft. Satanic cults like this have demonic rituals that members must pass through every time they are promoted to a higher level of power in the cult. The bathing of oneself in ice water is practiced as a Satanic baptism: a sealing of oneself for the purposes of Satan at the very highest levels of Sanse.

The real reason this ice bucket challenge was created was as to dupe people into inadvertently ritualizing themselves for Satan and opening themselves up to demonic activity in their lives. It is critical that everyone who has made the unwitting mistake of participating in this Satanic ritual understands that even though you meant well when you did it and were ignorant of the demonic agenda behind it(as will be true of 99% of all who do it), you have still opened a door in the spiritual realm for demons to invade your life. The fact that you did not know the truth does not insulate you from the damage that this ritual is designed to inflict:

Hosea 4:6
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge...

Please, if you or anyone you know has done this ice bucket challenge, pray and confess it as sin and ask God to forgive you, renounce any an all demonic activity associated with this ritual and ask for the blood of Jesus to cleanse you and protect you. Pray for the discernment you need to never be duped again like this because you can be sure that Satan will to try it again:

Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

God loves those with ALS and wants to heal them but he uses our prayers to do it. The best thing we can do for those who have or will have this disease is pray for their healing and that God protect those whom Satan would try to afflict with this disease in the future. Please agree with me in prayer:

Heavenly Father, we thank you that you are the Author of Life and that every truly good and pure thing comes from you. We know that ALS does not come from you but from the evil one and we pray you destroy this work of his and heal all who are suffering from this disease and protect all whom Satan is planning to attack with it. We pray you break off all generational curses on people's family lines that may leave them vulnerable to his attack of ALS. Thanks you Lord. Amen.

God bless you all.
