Present Day Nations And Demons
In the vast array of Countries in our world, all have principalities and powers ruling over them. Each area has its own dictator or leader in the heavenlies. We see this in (Dan.10:13) “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.” The word prince here means ruler. So, we see from this verse that there are principalities that rule over certain areas.
They have many demons under them. (Mark 5:9) “And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.” a legion, a body of soldiers whose number differed at different times, and in the time of Augustus seems to have consisted of 6826 men (i.e. 6100 foot soldiers, and 726 horsemen) So, in these two verses we see that there are organizations among demons much like our military. And just like the military, they are extremely driven and disciplined individuals.
In Singapore, heathen worshippers must pay respect to Pa. The spiritual ruler over the area before anyone is able to worship any other pagan deities. In Tibet, demonic power has had complete rule for ages. Demons desire worship. They will appear to be a god, but, in fact, it is a demonic spirit masquerading as a god. Many heathen priests even admit that a spirit inhabits their idols.
This is where bloodless self mutilation practices such as Thaipusam are practiced. Worshippers will puncture themselves with large hooks as a way to pay homage to “Cali”, the chief goddess. Others just puncture themselves with as many pins as they can. Yet, no blood can be found. The barbaric self-mutilation practices that go on in this city are highly demonic. All that are ensnared in it are unaware of what they are really worshipping.
Known as “cities of devils” The chief priests of demon worship, black magic and spiritism have their headquarters here. Doctor’s of witchcraft congregate and work from here.
In many heathen temples around the world, you can see stone carvings of grotesque figures that boggle the imagination. Such figures are probably correct in describing what these entities look like. In China, there is the dragon throne which has a throne covered in serpent type dragons. Many worshippers in the temple have reported seeing serpent spirits while worshipping. The dragons that are depicted all over China is probably a good picture of what actually abides over that country. It is my opinion that it is a dragon type principality. There is most likely more than one.
Cities And Alien Entities
Demons it seems are fiercely territorial. They seek to dominate any territory whether it is a nation, city, animal, object, or a person. They seek ownership.
Pergamos: (Rev.2:12-17) “And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam,
who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”
It seems from this passage as also in (Dan.10:13) which we saw earlier, that demons set up their thrones and rule over certain areas. In this case the city of Pergamos. Balaam, was the central character in an amalgam of Israelite traditions found in the Book of Numbers. Hired by Balak, king of Moab, to curse the Hebrews encamped in the Jordan valley, Balaam could only bless them. Later,
Balaam seduced the Israelites to commit evil, an act for which he was killed. It seems this was going on in Pergamos and God was angry over it. There were people within their congregation engaged in idol worship and eating things sacrificed to idols. God was warning this church to repent or He would come to fight against them. Any fight against God is a loss for those who oppose Him.
This seems to be a city given over to idol worship. This is a city that was active in emperor worship as well as to Zeus. This indicates a centralization of demon power in certain cities. Some cities are more prone to demonization than others. Demons have greater strength in such domains. Here we see two areas where they rule. 1) Where Satan dwells (V.13) 2)
Where his seat is (V.13) This speaks of a headquarters from where Satan operates from, and a throne from where he gives orders. This of course could also include a ruling principality as well. Just as there was a Principality over Persia in (Dan.10:13), so is Satan the head over this particular area, and he has set up a throne there.
In the Roman empire, there were ten kingdoms. The chief was of course in Rome where Caesar dwelled. But, there were ten kings total. It seems that demonic kingdoms are the same way. Having a similar structure and organization.
(Rev.18:2) “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” Babylon was destroyed for it’s witchcraft. The world’s witchcraft was born there. This is a city totally given over to witchcraft and sorcery. (Dan.10:20) “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.” There were many demonic princes over this city. It took 21 days of fasting and prayer to break it down.
Sodom And Gomorrah
These cities were given over to a very specific transgression. Sodomy. It became so dominant was obligated to destroy it. San Francisco is a modern day version of this city. Every form of homosexuality can be traced to a rebellious spirit of some sort. (ISam.15:23)
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.” Another reason why God destroyed it, for their rebellion. San Francisco is the same way. Maybe an earthquake will totally destroy it one day. It is clear from the actions of the homosexual individuals living there what kind of Principality resides over that city.
Named for a female goddess named Cali. Her image at the great temple depicts her tongue sticking out six in. wide x 8 in. long. She demands blood. Goat sacrifices are common at the foot of this idol. Calcutta is shackled with a spirit of oppression.
There is much corruption in this city and sin in all areas of life. It is also a center for world government. Property Crime ranks the highest in this city. With Aggravated Assault being number two. This is what is known as spiritual mapping. If you look at the statistics to certain crimes and activities in a certain city or area, you can determine the dominant spirit in an area. Demons infest this city.
Every city has its spirits ruling there. The dominant sin often indicates the dominant devil. In New York and L.A., demon domination is at a grand scale. Filth, lust, murder, greed and much more are among the many onslaughts of the enemy.
The reason Satan’s power is so strong in the big cities like Washington, New York, Chicago, and L.A. is because they are full of soothsayers, crystal gazers, fortune-tellers spiritist mediums and cults of all kinds. Where more demonic practices occur, more demonic manifestations will result. Then, you will have more crime and demonized individuals wreaking havoc on mankind.
