The SCOTUS decision gave three of these generals of Satan control over American lands.
(I referred to some of these in my Synod series last October and later--you may want to go back and look at those posts.)
The first evil demon "general" now in power is Asmodeus, homosexuality in men. The second and third, out of the five, are Lilith, the passive demon of homosexuality in women and Leviathan, the agressive one.
Two other generals are still not in control. One is Baal, the old God of the Canaanites, of whom I have written on this blog in the past.
The point Father Dan wanted to make was that these demons now have a foothold in our country and more and more demons, (there are millions), will gather in the States like flies. Father used the metaphor of flies to explain that once a general is in an area, the troops follow.
We are now living in a besieged land spiritually.
This is another reason why I want to set up a house of prayer, like a little area of troops behind enemy lines. And, why this country needs contemplative, intercessory prayer.
Father Dan said that we have to prepare ourselves for the coming onslaught of evil. (One reason for this blog).
Knowing one is living in a land under the rule and troops of evil spirits sobers one's thoughts and hopefully focuses one on becoming holy, and, may I add again, moving into some sort of community.
I add here the famous section from Daniel concerning the angels fighting. From the book of Daniel:
8 And I being left alone saw this great vision: and there remained no strength in me, and the appearance of my countenance was changed in me, and I fainted away, and retained no strength.
9 And I heard the voice of his words: and when I heard, I lay in a consternation, upon my face, and my face was close to the ground.
10 And behold a hand touched me, and lifted me up upon my knees, and upon the joints of my hands.
11 And he said to me: Daniel, thou man of desires, understand the words that I speak to thee, and stand upright: for I am sent now to thee. And when he had said this word to me, I stood trembling.
12 And he said to me: Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thy heart to understand, to afflict thyself in the sight of thy God, thy words have been heard: and I am come for thy words.
13 But the prince of the kingdom of the Persians resisted me one and twenty days: and behold Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, and I remained there by the king of the Persians.
14 But I am come to teach thee what things shall befall thy people in the latter days, for as yet the vision is for days.
Our Angels fight with demons. This is not news.
I shall continue this later....
