Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020, came and went …
There is nowhere else in the world the Church is growing as fast as it is growing in Africa [see 2019 data here]. Yet for those who have been brought up there, members of the various tribes on the continent [tribes in Kenya], there is this shadowy world of witchcraft, never been exorcised even after several generations of Christianity/Catholicism.
@thewarourtime is second generation catholic from my father’s side and 3rd generation from mother’s side. My late mother’s sister a sister with these, a cousin of hers, I believe, a Catholic priest. Dad was in the seminary, wanting to be a priest, I wanted to be a priest, my son wants to be a priest. Yet growing up, there were these people out there wanting to do you harm, casting spells or doing witchcraft on articles of clothing, one’s possessions, money, etc. so that people were sickened, never were successful or amounted to anything, marriages ruined, etc. How it all worked out and who exactly were witchcraft’s malevolent agents, wrecking havoc, no one knew, yet its specter continually hangs over Africa’s children.
Until now …
In the Easter Mass we never had this year:
Death and life have contended
in that combat stupendous:
the Prince of life, who died,
Lucifer, lord all on his own over chaos and darkness but promising illusory lordship to his followers.
Beelzebub: The Devil in Primitive Africa. Structure exposed, being dismantled
Beelzebub was, because it is now being dismantled, the witchcraft structure that the Devil set up in Primitive Africa.
Matriarch passing on to duo of eldest daughter and youngest daughter, the latter acting as the seer, prophet.
Power over demons? He has never departed from this signature:
– child sacrifice. In this case, males are targetted
– sexual depravity. The genius of the plan, mom was a virgin bride!
To spare my mom, such a matriarch, and my sisters, won’t go into details here which immediate family members have.
All their waking hours and nights are to harming God’s creation and especially his children. Colleagues, friends, spouse, siblings, children, irrelevant.
The illusory reward: long-living widows respected in society – gives new meaning to black widow, Africans are black – surrounded seemingly by doting children and their children’s children.
Allah is the best of planners
I have a niece, a Muslim, she has the following as her WhatsApp Avatar:
In such a family that murders male children, and women rule over the survivors, God slipped in and raised his Melchisedech, the very one such a set up was erected to eliminate.
Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020, came and went …
They were unable to establish their kingdom of death. They are trying Melchisedech and arguing he is just one of them [cf. very last Star War: Palpatine and Rey, and for the latter to give in to her anger].
Victori spolia Since they couldn’t establish their kingdom by Sunday, April 12, 2020, it means they lost. Christus Vincit! That means their structures come down, one such structure in Africa is now exposed to be taken down.
CCC 2115 God can reveal the future to his prophets or to other saints. Still, a sound Christian attitude consists in putting oneself confidently into the hands of Providence for whatever concerns the future, and giving up all unhealthy curiosity about it. Improvidence, however, can constitute a lack of responsibility.
CCC 2116 All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future.48 Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.
CCC 2117 All practices of magic or sorcery, by which one attempts to tame occult powers, so as to place them at one’s service and have a supernatural power over others – even if this were for the sake of restoring their health – are gravely contrary to the virtue of religion. These practices are even more to be condemned when accompanied by the intention of harming someone, or when they have recourse to the intervention of demons. Wearing charms is also reprehensible. Spiritism often implies divination or magical practices; the Church for her part warns the faithful against it. Recourse to so-called traditional cures does not justify either the invocation of evil powers or the exploitation of another’s credulity.
My sisters, my aunties, lookers!
You are interested? Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
The stories of jinn have a basis in reality.
