MASSACRE IN AURORA, CO 07/23/12 |

Over this last weekend, people were murdered at a movie theater in Aurora, CO.
What causes that? Demons. What are demons? Demons are fallen angels that rebelled against God when Satan did. Demons get into people and make them do crazy things, unless those people are God-fearing people, such as Christians. Christians are far more likely to resist demons than unbelievers in God.
The young man was studying for a PhD. He was studying "How people behave." People behave in many ways. But a course like that would no doubt list various different aberrant behaviors, such as mass murderers.
The young man apparently was having trouble finding work. College students generally could use a little extra financial income. Our present economy makes jobs hard to find.
Graduate studies in human behavior would no doubt include the subject of mass murderers. I don't know which of the mass murderers caught Mr. Holmes' attention, but somewhere along the line, he probably identified with one or more of them. But if Holmes had been a God-fearing man, he would have rejected being a murderer himself, for it is written, "No murderer has eternal life abiding in him."
But since Holmes wasn't God-fearing, he was attracted to the notion of being a mass murderer. Perhaps we ought to be more careful who we teach about aberrant behavior at colleges and universities.
At the time he chose to embrace the notion of being a mass murderer, a demon became closely involved with Holmes, and probably entered into him. Perhaps Holmes wanted notoriety, like the murderer who shot the Congresswoman in Tucson.
Many of the weirdo criminals have also been involved in using pornography. Porn opens the door to demons. Jesus cast demons out of people in the Bible. There was the Gadarene demoniac who had a legion of demons that Jesus cast out.
If a person is not God-fearing, then when life's pressures come, he's liable to yield to demons and do crazy things.
Christians have the authority to cast demons out of people (Luke 10:19), but as Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin has taught, demons can't be cast out of someone who wants to keep their demons.
The Bible says, "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." Our nation was originally founded on Judeo-Christian principles, but in recent years and decades, we've let sex perversion become acceptable in our nation. It was apparently sex perversion that brought down the Roman Empire. Why would Americans think it won't bring our nation down?
It was in the news recently that a retiring Congressman recently got married. Was it to a nice lady? No, it was to a man. God is very much against that. 1 Cor. 6:9,10 says gays can't go to heaven ("the effeminate"). People who don’t go to heaven do go to a fiery hell. Romans chapter 1 also speaks against homosexuality. The great kings of Israel in the Old Testament drove out the Sodomites.
When a nation espouses behavior that God has forbidden, events such as the recent Aurora massacre will follow. The nation could, of course, return to fearing God and serving Him, and choosing the things that please him. But if the nation chooses to disregard God, then more massacres will occur.
