NEWT GINGRICH AS TRUMP'S RUNNING MATE? GOD FORBID!

TO MY READERS:

THE FOLLOWING WAS WRITTEN FOR MY READERS IN 2011 WHEN NEWT GINGRICH WAS THEN SEEKING THE PRESIDENCY.  I AM HEARING FROM TOO MANY SOURCES THAT DONALD TRUMP MAY WELL NAME GINGRICH AS HIS RUNNING MATE THIS YEAR 2016.  I AM THEREFORE REPRINTING IT AND I HOPE TO GET SOMETHING OFF TO NEWSWITHVIEWS TONIGHT AS WELL.

STAY IN TUNED AND IN PRAYER!

NEWT GINGRICH, THE NEW AGE, GLOBAL CIVIL SOCIETY AND GLOBAL GOVERNANCE


By Attorney Constance Cumbey
REPRINTED FROM May 13, 2011NewsWithViews.com


Newt Gingrich has just announced he plans to run for President in 2012. And a whole bunch of undiscerning “Conservatives” and “Christians” might just well back him. The entire affair will be to the utter delight of New Age strategists and global planners who well consider Newt Gingrich an indispensable part of their apparatus.
Recently resigned State Department official Dr. Anne-Marie Slaughter believes that the “New World Order” of which she is an unashamed proponent is already well in place. It is a network of networks, per Slaughter. It is composed of equivalent globalized governmental layers from all levels of government from the executive to the legislative and judiciary and down through various levels of bureaucracies including regulatory commissions sharing information and planning “model legislation” together. All levels also interact with “Non-governmental organizations” (NGO’s). Business is tied together by “The UN Global Compact.” Perhaps nobly, more aptly scarily is this obviously global fascistic goal as stated by former UN General Kofi Annan, of “shared values and principles, which give a human face to the global market.” (emphasis added). All corporate participants are expected to pledge allegiance to the principles of “diversity” and “fighting climate change” (defined at least at present as “global warming.)
Query: What “shared values”? What “shared principles”? Also, the “banking crisis” artificially generated or otherwise, has led to calls for “a new financial architecture for the 21st Century. (Slaughter, A NEW WORLD ORDER, p. 20).
Now, just how does NEWT GINGRICH, fit into the increasing momentum of the global governance agenda? He was, bluntly, an “early adopter.” In 1996 before he left Congress in scandal, he was putting together incredibly linked global governance networks. According to Anne-Marie Slaughter’s 2004 Princeton University Press book, A NEW WORLD ORDER:
“When Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, he was convinced that parliamentary networks would give domestic legislators a new role in foreign policy. In 1996 he sent a letter to his Russian counterpart, Gennadyy Seleznyov, to create a forum made up of members of U.S. and Russian legislatures to discuss issues of defense, foreign policy, energy, and the environment on a regular basis. The result was the U.S. Congress-Russian Duma Study Group.”
Newt Gingrich did this at the “legislative level.” His very good friend and New Age buddy, Al Gore, did likewise at the executive level. According to Anne-Slaughter, “The [Gore’s]commission created a special channel to advance not only common political objectives but also to enhance each politician’s political position at home.” (emphasis added) (Slaughter, A NEW WORLD ORDER, p. 114)
Wading deeper and deeper into global government (ooops, governance) territories, Newt Gingrich created “the Twenty-First Century International Legislators Network.” This, per Slaughter, he “launched in 1996.” It was “sponsored” by the U.S. Congressional Institute. This was to be “a global web of legislators.”
If Gingrich were talking, which he undoubtedly non-stop is, he would probably say it was “to strengthen democracy around the world.” Knowing the New Age agenda as I do, I would say that was neither probable nor possible. Considering that one of Newt Gingrich’s more recent books is entitled A CONTRACT WITH THE EARTH, Earth Charter ramifications are abundantly clear.
I opened my personal file on Newt Gingrich in 1982 after reading articles about him in Marilyn Ferguson’s LEADING EDGE BULLETIN. She wrote of the brave Georgian Congressman, Newt Gingrich, who was working so hard to advance the New Age agenda. I continued to follow his exploits through his insensitive serving of divorce papers on his first wife Jackie as she was recovering from cancer surgery; his remarriage to his aide Marianne; his affair while married to Marianne to the woman now his wife. In 1989, I was contacted by one of his former aides and campaign managers, a man known as “Chip.” This was the same close observer and former aide quoted in the press as saying that no matter how much good he did for the world, he could never do enough good to offset the evil he had caused by supporting Newt Gingrich’s original election campaign. The “Christian” Gingrich wrote Chip that his daily practice of Taoism helped him make his daily decisions in Congress.
Others have noted what they, undoubtedly not knowing Gingrich’s past history, of Mark Satin’s embrace of him:
"[Newt] Gingrich's influence in the third way movement [has] brought on kudos from the likes of New Age 'philosopher' Mark Satin [who has] identified Gingrich as a top 'decentralist / globally responsible' [thinker]. An interesting paradox, that fits the odd decentralism of the Third Way. . . . Beyond that, Mr. Satin . . . is not the kind of man you expect to be praising [Gingrich]." -- Steve Farrell & Diane Alden, "Third Way Contract," Independent American Party [website], c. January 2005”

Newt Gingrich wrote in many of his official bio’s for conservative causes that he taught history.  In actuality, it was in the New Age full employment program of “Environmental Studies.” In the mid 1980s, Mark Satin, author of NEW AGE POLITICS and NEW OPTIONS newsletter gave “Internationalist” rankings for Congressmen. Heading the list with the best “internationalist” voting records in Congress were Newt Gingrich and Marcy Kaptur, a Congresswoman from Toledo, Ohio.

An interesting analysis of Newt Gingrich appeared in a 1986 edition of the Los Angeles Times. It noted how he was most likely a left leaner, but learned that the right got the votes. Ergo, he suddenly veered course to the right. That analysis troubles me more than the Alvin Toffler, Heidi Toffler, Environmental Studies analyses which are a red flag of New Age danger in and of themselves.. It suggests a man who is more amoral than immoral. Such a person to my way of thinking is most dangerous of all – he does nothing from conviction or reason, but does all from a analysis of personal advantage.
Another astute Gingrich observer was writer Steve Farrell. You can read his 2001 analysis by clicking the link here. Excerpting in part, we read:
On November 11, 1994, still bubbling and cocksure over the Republican takeover of both Houses, his coming coronation as Speaker of the House, and his annointing as King of the Republican Revolution, Gingrich couldn't resist exploiting the moment to put in a free plug for something he so devoutly believed in. . . . "The core of our Contract," and the solution for those "trying to figure out how to put me in a box," he said, could be found in a book by futurist Alvin Toffler called "The Third Way;" to which he added: "I am a conservative futurist ." (1)  . . . 
Futurism, as already alluded to, is one and the same with the Third Way or Third Wave, but for brevity sake, Webster's Dictionary gives us another take on this subject.   . . . 

"Futurism: Study of, and interest in, forecasting or anticipating the future, or theorizing on how to impose controls on events." (2)


Or in other words, a head in the clouds political philosophy, complete with theories and forecasts, which envisions the use of force to insure those theories and forecasts come to past.

It would not be a stretch to call it communism with economic vision, for that is what the futurists of the Third Way call it. But, what then, is a conservative futurist? If we believe Newt Gingrich, it is in person, a post 1994 Republican. And it is in policy, the Contract With America, the go along, get along policies of a party who for the next six year "caved" under Clinton, and the faith-based subsidies, public private partnership, fast track hopes, and bipartisan spirit of today’s Compassionate Conservativism movement - the latter of which had its start in the legislation and underlying principles of that same Gingrich Contract...”

Perhaps Newt Gingrich is not a New Ager, but saw political advantage at the time as portraying himself in certain circles as one. As dangerous as an ideologue of any strip potentially is, I would prefer one to a self-centered narcissist. Perhaps an ideologue could be converted. A narcissist could only be reinforced. While we are all sinners in need of saving by Grace, I fear we have somebody in public life who lacks both conviction and shame.

May the Lord help us all!Germany once put somebody in office that bragged that if one repeated a lie often enough and loud enough, people would believe it. Too many people do. I fear that the USA may well be on the verge of doing the same vis a vis Newt Gingrich. As far as the Christians not seeing through Newt Gingrich, this is what I have to say to them. “If you couldn’t see through Rev. Moon (“Lord of the Second Advent) and you couldn’t see through Paul N. Temple (Institute of Noetic Sciences co-founder active with the Prayer Breakfast Network of Douglas Coe), then I can hardly expect you to see through Newt Gingrich!

Once again, Constance?
Christine has co-opted your blog as her own.
That is what is going on here.
 
If Gingrich is not VP he very well might be Secretary of State.
 
I would be justly fearful of Gingrich even as Dog Catcher! His first campaign manager "Chip" once said in an interview that he (Chip) could never do enough good in the world to compensate fore the evil he had done to it by helping Newt Gingrich be elected to Congress. Newt wrote many letters to Chip and his family about how his daily practice of Taoism helped him make his daily decisions in Congress. I opened my file on Newt Gingrich in 1982 or 1983 (can't currently accurately recall which year) when he was the front page story in Marilyn Ferguson's LEADING EDGE BULLETIN about the brave Georgian Congressman doing so very much to advance the New Age agenda. Also, Mark Satin gave him and a woman congressman named "Marcy" perfect scores on "decentralist, globalist issues", i.e. New Age issues. They had the ONLY perfect such scores in Congress, even beating New Age Congressmen Claiborne Pell and Dennis Kucinich.

Interesting commentary on Newt. When he was in office, I thought he was a conservative Republican. Glad to know you've done this research on him. I wonder then, about Sean Hannity (Roman Catholic) and his views now, since he has been a close friend of Newt. I try and keep abreast on many things. My concern is to maintain a true biblical worldview in all of life, but there is too much, sometimes, to keep up with, and much of it is so depressing. Evil seems to need no rest. But, the God of the bible is in control.

Dear Constance,

Radio talk show host and John Carrie's worst nightmare Howie Carr drove a stake through the heart of Newt Gingrich this afternoon by playing archived comments by Newt Gingrich speaking in support of Climate Change as he stood side by side with Nancy Pelosi. Howie Carr, who was previously on the fence about Gingrich is now CURED!!! Anyone else need to be "vaccinated???" LOL

Venezuela Puts Nation’s Limited Food Supply Under Military Control

http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2016/07/13/venezuela-deploys-army-keep-people-limited-food-supply/
 
I can't help notice that whenever talk of global governance pops up, there seems to be numerable connections to the Soviet Union, Russia, or communism. From Constance's article, there's this quote from Anne-Marie Slaughter:

"When Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, he was convinced that parliamentary networks would give domestic legislators a new role in foreign policy. In 1996 he sent a letter to his Russian counterpart, Gennadyy Seleznyov, to create a forum made up of members of U.S. and Russian legislatures to discuss issues of defense, foreign policy, energy, and the environment on a regular basis. The result was the U.S. Congress-Russian Duma Study Group."

In reference to Nancy Pelosi in Susanna's comment, Pelosi certainly is a big actor in the "Red-Green Show" (not to be confused with the hilarious Canadian show of the same name). Red-Green as in Watermelons, as in green on the outside and red on the inside.

She helped fund Gorbachev's start over here in the Presidio, as he set up his "Gorbachev Foundation". Gorbachev, still a "red", also went green with many different projects he helped initiate or was involved in, like Green Cross International.

According to the following article, Newt was one of the invitees to the 1994 ('95?) "State of the World Forum", where Gorbachev and Maurice Strong introduced their draft of the Earth Charter, which I would consider one of the central documents of the modern New Age movement.

http://www.kenraggio.com/KRPN-Gorbachev-PresidiumtoPresidio.htm

(Lots of good references in the above article.)

They are all green peas in a pod, trying to push their green "sustainable development" agenda on us all. The vehicle they have chosen for it is global governance via the socialist worldwide revolution. What better vehicle to use to destroy the current world so as to build a "new and better" one?

Because of the brainwashing and re-education successes they've had through our public education system and colleges and universities, the stage is set. Like we used to sing back in the 70s in our youth group: "It only takes a spark, to get a fire going...."

I really think once things really get going, it will seem like a switch was thrown, it will be that fast. I don't even think it's *necessary* for a crisis to occur, but like they say, never let a good crisis go to waste, so you never know.

 
"I really think once things really get going, it will seem like a switch was thrown, it will be that fast. I don't even think it's *necessary* for a crisis to occur, but like they say, never let a good crisis go to waste, so you never know."

I think you are right on the money in your post. Just a few bumps in the road to go and that thing is gonna drive 8:36 PM.
 
Well, Trump is a New Ager, since when asked if he asked God for forgiveness, Trump said NO, but he believes in the Power of Positive Thinking. And he was saying the author of the Power of Positive Thinking was someone he looked up to tremendously (I am paraphrasing).
Trump=New Age Oprah Style Christian.
 
France is highly likely to leave the EU. Tonight the French President announced that the military reserves will guard the borders. This action is to try to pre-empt the right wing from winning at the polls in order to isolate France.
 
here's what I think: France and some eastern edge EU countries and Denmark with leave EU. Also Greece. The Czech Republic, which has refused to take in refugees will probably leave also. Romania and Greece and Serbia will join up with the Russian connected economic thing I forget the name.

Closet Nazi elements will exploit the jihadi refugee problem having moved the German and French and other countries towards the far right. Any EU army is going
to essentially be a German army and some other countries. The Nazi element in the Ukraine and Lithuana and Latvia is going to get more up front and exploit issues from WW 2.
 
The 8:36 PM comment above was mine... forgot to put my name in.

 
Marko, 8:36 PM

As you know, I have pointed out on numerous occasions that socialism is the political arm of the New Age Movement whose pseudo-theology is Gnostic with a particular emphasis on the perennialist philosophy.

Perennialism views each of the world's religious traditions as sharing a single, universal truth on which foundation all religious knowledge and doctrine has grown. In other words, according to perennialism, all religious roads equally lead to the "one universal truth." Ergo "one religion is as good as any other."

Perennialism is compatible with collectivism and is itself a form of philosophical collectivism insofar as it is the complete denial of the unique, objective truth of any individual religion and its rights - expecially authentic Christianity and Orthodox Judaism.

Politically speaking, Collectivism is not a collection of individuals; It is the complete denial of the individual and that individual's rights as an individual.

The collectivist "multiculturalism" that has led to so many problems in Europe and elsewhere is a complete denial of the validity of any individual particular culture and its rights to preserve and nurture itself as an individual particular culture.

Regarding "utopian socialism"

One key difference between utopian socialists and other socialists (including most anarchists) is that utopian socialists generally do not believe any form of class struggle or political revolution is necessary for socialism to emerge. Utopians believe that people of all classes can voluntarily adopt their plan for society if it is presented convincingly. They feel their form of cooperative socialism can be established among like-minded people within the existing society, and that their small communities can demonstrate the feasibility of their plan for society.

Constance,

Thank you for retrieving my comment. :-)
 
Constance,

As I mentioned earlier, Radio talk show host Howie Carr who is also a columnist for the Boston Herald (not to be confused with the more liberal Boston Globe) more or less drove a stake through the heart of Newt Gingrich as VP after a member of his "Greek chorus" dug up a video ( which I posted above ) showing the love seat schmooze-fest between Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi as they sounded the alarm in unison about Global Warming.

That is what did it for Howie who previously favored Gingrich and was lukewarm about Mike Pence!!!! Now, a more enlightened Howie Carr is down on Gingrich and A-OK with Mike Pence for VP.


Viva YouTube!!! LOL


 

HOW THE COUP IN TURKEY ENDANGERS THE U.S.
July 15, 2016
http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/world/article89937372.html


 
Turkey will now become FOP,(Friends Of Putin) in my opinion.
NATO and the EU have been dragging their feet in embracing the Turks.
 
youtube has several live news feeds going on, put turkey coup live in the search box of youtube itself.
 
According to Greta Van Sustern, the coup has ended. The Turks can expect a huge crackdown by Erdogan who was already leaning in an extreme authoritarian non-secular, anti-democratic direction.

The coup reportedly caught the Obama administration completely off guard.

According to another report Erdogan claims that this coup was orchestrated by an imam living in exile in Pennsylvania!!!

Dorothy Margraff did a lot of research on Fethullah Gulen and his charter schools that have popped up all over the place here in the United States.

Stay tuned.
 
There will be a massive flow of refugees into Europe from Turkey whatever the outcome of the coup. This spells the end of Europe as we know it. Get ready for the new, smaller version.
 
The following Christian Science Monitor article is from 2013. As the article points out, Gulen is a Sufi. Sufism has been the exoteric religious face in the West of the TRADITIONALIST SCHOOL which embraces the philosophy of perennialism.
Gulen was partly influenced by Rene Guenon who was a gnostic "bishop," a convert to Sufism and one of the co-founders of the TRADITIONALIST SCHOOL.

Gulen's operation appears very consistent with the classic New Age / New World Religion agenda. One of his influential branches is the NIAGARA FOUNDATION. On its advisory board appears the President of Rochester College. That is local to us here in Oakland County, Michigan where I live. Rochester College is owned and operated by the Church of Christ.

Constance
 
Dorothy Margraf's inputs here on Gulen would be most appreciated. If anybody is talking with her recently, maybe she would like to submit an article and I'll publish it on this website and we could talk with her on next Saturday's radio program re same. Maybe Susanna could touch base with her.

we are real close to WW 3 and the western media isn't dealing with it.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLk1VsXH-m8 personally I think the situation with the Spratly islands could be resolved better by instead of yes vs. no with let China have the Spratlys they already put work on, and the water around it and a connecting water link to the mainland with easement across that for other shipping. the Hague's decision against them is being ignored by them because they aren't a signer on the treaty involved. such media involvement as happens just is phrased to encourage people to support any warhawk congress elements.

Here's another blog post about the Pokemon phenomenon:

http://erikadawson.com/is-pokemon-safe-children-christian-perspective/

I spoke with Bill Jones, who works at Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana. He and his wife train missionaries there at the college, themselves having been missionaries to France for many years.

He also currently teaches a course that anyone is free to take (not just Bethel students) called "Breaking Free 101", where the tactics of the enemy's strongholds in our lives are exposed, and opportunities are given to turn those strongholds over to Jesus. Many people find freedom in Jesus while taking the course. It's pretty amazing!

Anyway, he knows the Dawsons very well (they are Bethel's "officially sponsored" missionary couple), and also Bautista who is mentioned in the post, and says that he agrees 100% with what the blog post says. I found it quite interesting, but not surprising, because of all the stories like it that I heard while taking the Breaking Free class.

 

Pokemon: What is it?

Update 7/16/2016: The original CARM article on Pokémon was written in 2007. Recently, Pokémon has experienced a resurgence. In fact, it is now the number one viewed article on CARM. My daughter who, I just found out, plays Pokemon Go, told me it's fun and that there are no occultic overtones associated with it. So, downloaded the mobile phone app version of Pokémon and my daughter and I played it for 1/2 hour. So far, nothing occultic has surfaced in the new version. I'm going to continue my research.

Original Article: 10/18/2007

Pokemon, which is short for "pocket monster," has become a phenomenal success in America among children. There are cartoons and even a movie based upon the Pokemon characters. Almost every child in America is familiar with this fad and owns some form of Pokemon paraphernalia. But, what is Pokemon?

Pokemon was created by Nintendo in Japan in 1996. It is a role-playing game involving cards, Nintendo Game Boy, and TV cartoons. The cards have pictures of different Pokemon on them, more than 150 so far. The Pokemon are supposed to be "monsters" that have special powers and share the world with humans. The idea of the game is to have the children learn how to collect as many Pokemon as possible, train them, and use them against other people's Pokemon by invoking the various abilities of each Pokemon creature. Pokemon can evolve and pass through various levels, 100 being the highest. Colored energy cards are sometimes used to aid the Pokemon.


 
Pokémon (continued) . . .

There are four basic types of cards.
1.Basic Pokemon cards which depict creatures that fight for you against other people's Pokemon.
2.Evolution cards depict Pokemon that are able to evolve into more powerful creatures.
3.Energy cards are united with other cards to give the Pokemon more energy needed in carrying out the trainer's orders.
4.Trainer cards are cards used one time and then discarded.

There are different types or categories of Pokemon: Bug, Fighting, Fire, Flying, Dragon, Electric, Ghost, Grass, Ground, Ice, Normal, Poison, Psychic, Rock, and Water. Within each type are several different Pokemon, each possessing various abilities. See the chart at the web link below.

Within the game, evolution is taught repeatedly. There are special stones (Fire, Leaf, Moon, Thunder, and Water) that can be used to force some Pokemon to evolve into more powerful creatures. Of course, after normal development in skill learning, various Pokemon often evolve on their own.

Is Pokemon Dangerous?

Is Pokemon dangerous? Potentially, yes it is. It conditions the child who plays the game into accepting occult and evolutionary principles. Haunter can hypnotize, eat a person's dreams, and drain their energy. Abra reads minds. Kadabra emits negative energy that harms others. Gastly induces sleep. Gengar laughs at peoples' fright. Nidoran uses poison. The Psychic type of Pokemon are among the strongest in the game. Charmander, Haunter, Ivysaur, Kadabra, and many more evolve. The children are taught to use these creatures to do their will by invoking colored energy cards, fights, and commands. Much of it is reminiscent of occult and eastern mysticism.

The Bible says to "Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov. 22:6).1 2 Chron. 33:6 says, "And he made his sons pass through the fire in the valley of Ben-hinnom; and he practiced witchcraft, used divination, practiced sorcery, and dealt with mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, provoking Him to anger."

I do not see how allowing children to play with games that encourage fighting, reading of minds, use of poison, mimicry, taunting, teleportation, hypnosis, and evolution can be a good thing. This is not training a child to righteousness, it is accepting the occult and secular evolution. Is this what we, as Christians, want our children to meditate on? Of course not.

If children are conditioned to accept these things in youth, then they will be more likely to accept these ideas in adulthood. This leads people away from God's word and truth, not toward it. This is dangerous to a person's eternal destiny.

More Information
•On the Pokemon rules website it states, "Carry your Pokmon with you, and you're ready for anything! You've got the power in your hands, so use it!"
•One observer of children playing the game said the children would afterwards mimic the game by summoning the Pokemon to attack others. This is occultic.
•Pokemon are summoned to do battle and to protect. This is equivalent to sorcery.
•Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water are frequent elemental themes found in Pagan religions, witchcraft, and Wicca, and are used heavily in Pokemon.

The spiritual side of the world is real. There are spiritual elements and demonic forces at work, whose purpose is to lead astray and destroy:


"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places," (Eph. 6:12).

The enemy is powerful and cunning. The only light we have is the Bible, and we need to follow it and not give ourselves or our children into the hands of those who would introduce occultic principles in a role-playing game. Again, the Bible says...


"But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons," (1 Tim. 4:1).

There is nothing wrong with children having fun and using their imaginations, but when that fun involves the occult it is dangerous. As Christians, we should be very concerned about what our children are involved in since they can be so easily influenced. They don't need the influence of the occult or evolutionary theory to help them towards Christ. They need the truth.

You are over-reacting

Addendum - two months later:

This article has generated some interesting responses. I've been called delusional, bigoted, paranoid, and one who contributes to the decline of society because of my intolerant comments about an innocent and fun child's game. One mother, who claimed to be a Christian, emailed me with heavy complaints and accusations and sought to justify her actions in encouraging her children to watch Pokemon. Well, that is her prerogative.

Have I changed my opinion? Not at all. Am I delusional, bigoted, paranoid, and a contributor to social decay? I certainly hope not. And from what I see in God's word and from what I have seen in Pokemon, I still stand on what I have said.

I expect people to not like it when their comfort zone is rattled, when I don't tote the secular line and salute to "harmless children's games," even when they teach occultism. By the way, I told the Christian mother that the Lord will hold her accountable for how her children are raised. I asked her if she wants to continue to encourage her children to play with cards that teach casting spells, evolution, and controlling forces to do your bidding. She emailed me back and called me some names.

Others have simply assumed a non-Christian perspective and made judgments about me and this article from their non-Christian point of view. That isn't a problem. They are entitled to their opinions, as am I.

Is Pokemon good? I don't think so. Does it contribute to impressionable children accepting occult ideas? Yes, it does.

firstly, though you mention sorcery, you barely touch on what I see as a central issue here, that these things supposedly live in the world with you and you can harness them and the word used is "summon" them. this is conjuring spirits and having familiar spirits. that instead of sellilng your soul you have managed to dominate and badger them into your service is irrelevant. you are still trafficking with such things. And anything they do for you is going to be contaminated. psychic time bombs so to speak can be left. suppose for instance you use a dominated demon of lower rank you can put in a bottle and beat over the head with names of God to get it to get some books free your kid needs for school these will of course have been stolen from somewhere. aside from the moral and spiritual issue of theft, that thing will likely leave some imprint psychically on the materials that can lead your kid astray.

it is not for nothing that the Bible says we should seek to YHWH Who gives good gifts WITHOUT A CURSE ATTACHED. or something like that.

now, the gog magog war primarily is in Revelation after the Second Coming of Christ, but there is no reason a preliminary form couldn't play out now days.

and the situation regarding erdogan in Turkey looks like it could lead to that. you will note that the ethnic groups described and locations people come from to make war on Israel, in Ezekiel 38, include almost no Arabs.

While browsing internet sites of a term paper writing service, read mindful all of the material on their custom writing service. All these organizations claim that they only employ non-ESLs as part of their teams. Certainly their content would be skillfully created also, evaluate the language employed. If you find any grammatical blunders in the premises of their websites, lower them out from your list.
