Demonic principalities exist whether anyone can believe that. What sets them in motion is another thing. And yes weather can influence behavior because there is a lack of values , boundaries and moral standards which can influence behavior no matter what season it really is!
I don’t think anyone can strongly draw that line of demarcation that crime is only committed in the summer because it is then we have to ask what happens in warmer climates versus what happens here in the Midwest when the weather is fickle even during its seasonal months of Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall…. But I do understand the weather responses! And I also believe that we are saying the same thing but in a different way!
The ” Greek” word for arche means “chief ” or “ruler”. A spirit of murder is in Chicago and other areas. Whether its cold or hot. Violence is still on the rise. Gangs have ” powerfully” been in Chicago even before I was conceived…
Chicago had gangsters and a lot of mob influence. So, you have to question what ” “Principality” influence a city like Chicago? Money, Greed and a lot of Pride. And I can connect all three. The “LOVE” of money is the ROOT OF ALL EVIL.
Violence has cost us lot of money and to certain industries it pays lots of money! We have gangs fighting over territory that they don’t even own …more or less pay taxes on! Sounds stupid? Yet, that influence is in the atmosphere. Everyone wants to be rich and die trying…Remember … Seed time and Harvest time…There is an influence!
Money and Greed instigate all this craziness. So know that the craziness continues we are grasping at straws to stop it. What’s in your house, communities or now days your places of worship? The blame game really needs to stop! We are only dealing with surface issues and not the root of the problems. Harboring, aid or abed-ding criminals isn’t going to help the cause nor more than blaming the police seems to be the option lately! The Police isn’t going to substitute what need to influenced in our homes in a positive light. We can’t re-raise a positive community until the myths are debunked. Blaming folks seems to be a safe rebuttal for many who are too afraid to tell it like it is… ignoring the truth isn’t going to fix the problem but balloon the lies!
People know who is selling, drugs, guns or anything illegally in their home on your blocks, in our communities! Sadly, I hear this all the time… My child wasn’t in a gang but evidence sometimes expose that he or she hung around questionable individuals! Where are the parents of the Barometric demons? It’s always the innocent that get caught up in the cross fires! No one wants to see their family, friend or loved ones killed. But there must be a common ground to move forward and challenge this plague!
How do we stop it? First Pray… and then let’s get busy and reexamine why it all went wrong. Lets deal with the truth of the dysfunction that flows in our communities with an open and honest dialogue! Understand that an influence is empowering the atmosphere. Good, bad or indifferent. Many Community Leaders and Activists” play dirty pool and fail to address the foolishness that runs rampant in the community. We can’t fix any problems until we first look the lies about ourselves in the face! Loose the attitude of who will lead us and learn to take dominion over one place at a time!
Staying in a violent neighborhood doesn’t teach one to relax but take on the attitude “killed or be killed”. It has served beneficial to whom? Ask a child that is afraid to go to school what they prefer to do? Moving isn’t always an option for poor people! And it’s up to us to stop it!
Unfortunately, many people spend a lot of time in church and refuse to educate themselves on what is really happening and why God has given us the bible in the first place. Where is the church… REALLY??? God created the church to be the place to get our marching orders and our fueling station for keeping the balance. And the results today, is because something has went terribly awry! Even the church has yet to cleanse its improprieties. So the church losing spiritual momentum…every time their sins are in-justly admonished.
When morals and the standards have decreased. Having a moral compass is one thing but what any fail to say is that all of us have dropped the ball on this one! Our society has starting breaking down the dynamics of having a strong Father and family influence.
No one wants to even address this new generation with angry children because of lack of parenting skills. Being in poverty is a better reason to strive to do better. I understand the oppression and the economical trip wires of not advancing people, especially when the system is set up for the poor to fail!
Even in my faith, I don’t bother explaining God. But I know the church was designed with a purpose in mind! I am suppose to allow “my witness” overshadow what I am speaking or teaching about. The moral standards of some churches is in the gutter. Gutter mentality is… As long as it isn’t happening to you, personally or private agendas, self serving or… people don’t care!
Why say we believe in God and fail to understand when something is making a “principle” in your home, city, state or community? Having numerous children out-of-wedlock isn’t going catapult you favorably when you are already facing the crisis of being poor. Lack of education is a seed… and we reap the harvest of ignorance on every level everyday. If you can’t go to college there is still library cards! Until one can learn to do better its no excuse to stop learning. Whatever psychological reason people come up with… Seed time and Harvest time… It’s a “principle” that is always working! Do the best we can with what you have!
We tend to stand clear when we have to “defend” our faith. I wont argue with those who don’t have a clear understanding about powers and rulers of darkness. As much as people sit in church it has become no more than a ritual and religion. Today I see a lot of lethargic Christians who fail to understand what they claim to follow. There is a way that seems right to “man” but not of God.
Many say they believe in God but can’t grasp that evil spirits do exist. How they come to be is another story in itself. What is there to debate? If weather influences us it doesn’t have to make murder and mayhem, it’s about choices and what is more valuable to us!
Seemingly systematically in Urban America it happens… Warm weather bring bad attitudes. Yes, I do understand both sides of those who believes that a lack of values is why we have it in the first place. I also understand that other crimes might be more susceptible in the winter. I honestly believe that crime can go up at any given moment. September 11… Happened before the Fall. We have to be clear and concise when we paint a broad brush of our reality as a Christian versus what the world can’t comprehend.
Barometric Demons…Remember .. BEELZEBUB…mean LORD OF THE FLIES… You ask. What are flies attracted to more than anything? I will let you answer.
Generational curse are passed along, so is the Spirit of murder. Do the research! Whatever the strong influence that is what human behavior has a tendency to grasp. I am a personal believer …garbage in, garbage out. Seed time and Harvest time!
There is a season of sowing and a season of reaping. Although it might be grasp in the physical remember a spiritual principle and concept is still working. It’s what is dominant or influenced.
Alcoholism, drug addictions, domestic violence,… These things are planted. I have seen physical diseases skip and show up many years later. Until someone is educated on how to stop it. Not having standards isn’t the formula for building a strong family! Ignorance has taken a front seats in some single parenting homes. Why people get offended with this statement? Our children need to be valued. Screwed up parents have messed up children.
Children need Fathers to step up and be Fathers! Women have to stop allowing seeds to be planted inside of them and strong cultivating skills of just saying NO… I will preserve my body for that right someone. All situations don’t fit all. I am just merely giving another perspective on how violence is destroying this nation because we are not grasping that there are some serious missing components in human nature today!
Tragically a lot of people have fallen victims to the erroneous system but merely looking the other way! What we don’t confront will confront us… No matter what the weather is… We need boundaries… and get back to that strong basis of being a family and staying a family! Mistakes are things that we didn’t foresee… Excuses are what many are making why this violence can’t be tackled. Before you respond…Ask yourselves honestly what are we failing to do collectively instead of attacking one another? How much “media attention” do we need before we actually… execute on what will work. We can’t fight until we unify! We might not all agree but I think we can find a common goal and a common ground!
We can’t get dispel the lies until the pride gets checked first, egos need to cease and desist. We have an epidemic on our hands! And we must take “Authority” over these self-induced negative influences… By recognizing we can’t add to the foolishness by looking the other and vying for the most popular. There will be no more heroes until we can get this violence under control! Too many lives are being lost. While many major or minor situations!
The summer is coming … and if I “decide” to march the streets of Chicago this year … It will be with a greater purpose and a plan of action! I close with this…Remember the Children of Israel walked around in a complete circle because of a lack of understanding and direction. I know it might get tedious but its a shorter journey with the wisdom of God and all our gifts put together for the sole purpose of serving and protecting others with our prayers, faith, action and positive influences!
