Prepping for the prince that shall come

Prepping for terrible times ahead, anticipated by the entire spectrum of those garnering goods and shelters in order to survive, saturates the many blogs that predict world-wide collapse into dystopia. This prepping includes many who are Christians –true believers in Jesus Christ for their Salvation.

This is the case, despite God’s prophetic Word plainly teaching that there is no preparation, apart from relying totally on God, alone, that can guarantee even a modicum of safety in that most horrendous time of history to come –the Tribulation. And believers of this age won’t endure that terrible time at any rate.

But this isn’t the prepping that is the subject of this commentary.

My thought is to address the preparations we can see being made by the minions, both demonic and human, of Ephesians 6: 12. The principalities and powers in high places which, unwittingly and unknowing, perhaps, in the case of the human minions, are preparing the way for human history’s most terrible tyrant.

And boy! Is that preparation ever  taking shape in ways and at speed which prophecy Watchers from the preTrib perspective find truly astonishing?!

As stated in previous attempts to cover what is happening with regard to things shaping up for the ending to this Church Age(Age of Grace,)I’m convinced that evil assaults on children constitutes a major signal of just how near the beginning of the Tribulation must be.      

Satan is preparing the hearts of fallen mankind to accept every form of wickedness in paving the road for his Antichrist’s regime to take power. The devil is more and more focusing his attack on the United States of America, because this nation is the last bastion of liberty in terms of human government. America also, despite speeding into anti-God behavior on practically every level of society and culture, still maintains the Light of God’s Salvation Message in which He Invites the world to accept His Grace Gift. –Thus the attack increases almost hour to hour.

One such report shows this as plainly as it can be shown, I believe. The once seemingly innocent Walt Disney productions, as I heard recently are banishing Prince Charming and is instead bringing in the prince of darkness. The following are a few excerpts of that report.

 “Little Demon,” a new animated show about a woman who mates with Satan and produces the Antichrist, is raising eyebrows and making cultural waves.

But amid the cacophony of frustrated retorts to the show — which airs on the Disney-owned network FXX and stars Danny DeVito as Satan — faith leaders and media experts are sounding some consequential theological and practical alarms for parents and children alike.

“I … can’t believe that this show exists,” Mike Signorelli, senior pastor of V1 Church in New York City, told CBN’s Faithwire. “I think if we could go back 30 years … everybody would universally be shocked and appalled.”

Disturbing Storylines

Signorelli isn’t exaggerating the situation, as the promotional language for “Little Demon” alone showcases the disturbing themes and images embedded in the show — violence, paganism, and satanic storylines cloaked in attempted comedy.

“Thirteen years after being impregnated by Satan, a reluctant mother, Laura, and her Antichrist daughter, Chrissy, attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware but are constantly thwarted by monstrous forces, including Satan, who yearns for custody of his daughter’s soul,” reads the show’s description.

Signorelli said “Little Demon” is the fulfillment of what happens when morals and ethics slowly erode and decay, sending culture on a slippery slope that tragically yields such a strange moment.

“What happens is, things incrementally change year over year to where you can accept what you would have never accepted in a previous generation,” he said. “As a Christian, I believe that the enemy is after our children. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but principalities powers and rulers in high places.”

Considering the purported paganistic themes in “Little Demon,” one of the quotes about the series that is circulating comes from actress Aubrey Plaza, who plays Laura.

“I love that we are normalizing paganism,” Plaza said while speaking about the show during an event this summer. “Laura is a pagan. She’s a witch. She’s jacked.”

(I can’t believe this show exists’: Network unleashes ‘Little Demon’ about woman mating with Satan, WND News Services, September 7, 2022 )

Lucifer and his minions are determined that America blocks the blueprint for the regime that will thwart Heaven’s prophetic Blueprint for mankind. So the assaults intensify. Demonic forces seem to be concentrating on demolishing the moral center of America, and seem to be successful to this point.

I remember placing the transcript of a warning issued by one of the nation’s top broadcast conscience-stimulating voices in my very first book –Storming Toward Armageddon—30 years or more ago. I will leave you with this once again. Paul Harvey’s prescience in delivering this stunning message and I believe delivering it for us at this moment, must have been Heaven-Directed.


If I were the devil … If I were the Prince of Darkness, I’d want to engulf the whole world in darkness. And I’d have a third of its real estate, and four-fifths of its population, but I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree — Thee.  So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first — I’d begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: ‘Do as you please.’

“To the young, I would whisper that ‘The Bible is a myth.’ I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what’s bad is good, and what’s good is ‘square.’ And the old, I would teach to pray, after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…’

“And then I’d get organized. I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

“If I were the devil I’d soon have families that war with themselves, churches at war with themselves, and nations at war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions — just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

“Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography — soon I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

“If I were the devil I’d take from those who have, and give to those who want until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.

And what do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would caution against extremes and hard work in Patriotism, in moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun, that what you see on the TV is the way to be. And thus, I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were the devil I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.

Paul Harvey, good day.”

    I have often said that humanity is being softened up to not only accept the coming Antichrist, but to actually welcome him with open arms.

    It has been and continues to be a multi-level approach, such as we see here:

    1) Corrupt the mainline church. First, neglect making its members Scripturally literate. After that, it’s easy to get them to accept the “doctrines of devils” and tell them what they want to hear, rather than what they NEED to hear. So instead of setting a standard that society should be encouraged to emulate, these neo-Laodicean churches will follow society right into the gutter making a universal moral inversion inevitable.
    2) Use fear to cause people to willingly give up their freedom. 9-11 produced the Patriot Act which began seriously compromising the freedom of every American, but the Covid-19 governmental overreach did more damage to individual liberty in formerly free countries than anything I’ve ever seen in my nearly 70 years of life.
    3) Addict people to something, be it drugs, booze, tech, etc.. The latter of which concerns me the most because I think it is the most widespread. For example, I go to the gym regularly and, more often than not, people get more exercise with their thumbs operating their smartphones than anything else,. These things get more action than the weights or the cardio machines. Surprisingly it is not just the young people, either. All ages are just generally addicted to these things, can hardly put them down! This certainly makes them more susceptible to accepting the technology that will one day enslave them by taking the mark of the beast.
    4) Keep people distracted. If you have them focused on just getting by day by day, they won’t see the really dangerous trends under the radar.
    5) Get to the kids. That’s what Hitler did with his Hitler Youth Program. That’s what’s going on now in the United States with the schools which are rapidly becoming left-wing propaganda factories.
    6) Divide and conquer. A divided kingdom or nation can’t survive. What does that say about what the polarization of any country will cause if not stopped?

    I’m sure there are a lot more examples, but this just shows us how bad it already appears to a guy that has been around for awhile.

  2. S.Z. says:

    There is nothing man creates that he does not eventually use for an evil purpose. When parents stopped going to church and the bible was taken out of schools we started on a downhill slide. We used to pray before lunch at school and stores were closed on Sunday and the streets were quiet. Sundays were different than the rest of the week. Parents taught respect for others, manners and young people had jobs after school. Filthy language wasn’t allowed in public with children and women around. Now it’s women and children that use the filthy language in public. There was no drug problem and the only homelessness was a few train hopper hobos. I am sick inside when I hear people that call themselves “progressive”. Believe me, there is nothing progressive about this current culture. It cannot embrace hell fast enough and worshipping the anti christ won’t even be questioned but instead celebrated. Undoubtedly the celebration will start in Hollywood.

    Hi Ed/Terry, Disney appears to be what we were warned of in the Bible, “beware of a wolf in sheep’s clothing! As you say . . . . . . . . . . .
    What happens is, things incrementally change year over year to where you can accept what you would have never accepted in a previous generation,” he said.
    “As a Christian, I believe that the enemy is after our children. We wrestle not against flesh and blood but principalities powers and rulers in high places.”
    Maybe this is the “clincher that seals the deal and God, says enough is enough”, not Ai, block chain tech, or the many other things we’ve seen become reality in our lifetime. He gave(as you’ve said in previous posts) stern warning to anyone who would harm these little innocent children. Not so innocent anymore as to the degree to which a child nowadays knows so much of the ways of the world!

    Walt Disney was known to have a dislike of Jews, or so I’ve read, but I never heard this until I was an adult. His theme parks and movies, i.e., Snow White , Bambi, etc were “innocent”, or so it seemed. But were they? This decadent deviation you speak about came about gradually, and from a company that modeled for its thought provoking images of things wondrous in a child’s imagination to leave impressions on innocent minds. We always believed if its Disney, it must be wholesome entertainment! Can’t think of a better way to “sneak” into a child’s mind and soul, if you will, ultimately corrupting their innocence to such a degree that they would never think anything Disney produces can be “bad”-this is brilliant in fact! These same children are now adults having children, so why wouldn’t they think its wholesome entertainment? You’ve said it , and I’ve heard it the Devil is incredibly crafty in his subtle nuances-tactics to kill, rob and destroy!

    One last thing–I distinctly remember listening the very day Paul Harvey broadcast, “if I were the Devil”. I listened to it on my parent’s AM car radio. I liked a station to hear music of the 60;s, and on it they carried Paul Harvey. It was broadcast roughly between 6 & 7pm every day. I must admit though it really didn’t make much of an impression on me then, at 11 or 12 years of age. Wow, does it ever now-and was he ever right. And who knew everything he speaks of was happening then even as it has increased exponentially in this current state of of the world around us-Jesus must be at “the door”, I think!

    • Ed Wood says:

      You are right, Dave.

      It’s the old “frog in the hot water” scenario. Put it in very hot water immediately and it’ll jump out. Put it in cool water and slowly raise the temperature and it’ll stay and end up getting cooked.

      Concerning Disney, twenty or so years ago I watched all of “Fantasia.” There came a very disturbing demonic sequence in it that I never saw get any press. Yet, even the “innocent” parts which were widely publicized had sorcery made to look benign, like with the dancing brooms. I never watched it again.

      I think that this film was made in the 1940’s so even that far back, it looked like it was already headed in the wrong direction.

      Now Disney has dropped all pretense and I don’t see the kind of outrage its current perverted policies would have provoked even ten years ago.

      Like you, I don’t think God will tolerate kids being exposed to this twisted culture much longer.

    My heart aches watching America fall for the ways of the devil. Satan is definitely working overtime. My strength is from God’s word plus being in worship service on Sundays and serving with other believers. BUT, Satan has wormed his way into another precious place of worship (and solace, for me and others) as the church I attend is being torn apart from within. The people are divided over a pastoral/elder dispute that’s been ongoing for 2+ years. After a special meeting yesterday, I believe many people will not return. I serve among many who have taken “a side”. I can’t take a side, but yesterday felt like sitting in a courtroom where one had to decide. It is so painful to see this happening. Over the many years that I’ve been a member, I’ve served in Sunday school and Awana, been in bible study groups, prayer groups, served at funerals, plus I now have been cleaning the church for this past year. I’m not racking up points here, but just sharing the involvement I’ve had and how I’m now at a loss because of what, I believe, is a pride and power struggle. And over the years I’ve been praying for my husband and adult daughter to return to a church. This strife does not help that matter one bit. But, I will still praise God and do know that He is in this storm, too. A side note… The last 2 Sundays there has been a class after worship service on the topic of Spiritual warfare. Not sure if we will have our teacher back next Sunday.
    Even so, leaning on God. Lisa

      I gave up on organized religion a long time ago, though I had once been very involved in my former church. Now, I am not suggesting that this is the course of action that you should take, but just wanted to share my experience. My denomination (Episcopal) ended up rolling over for the “doctrines of devils” giving a nod to homosexual behavior even among its clergy, the “many paths to God” lie, “mother Jesus” . . . well, you get the idea. I stuck it out for a few years hoping that at least in my own parish, people would stand up for the Bible. Didn’t happen.

      When I saw I was wasting my time, my mother and I got out. We tried a supposedly conservative Anglican church for a couple of years but as time passed, it was obvious its minister was antisemitic and didn’t believe most of the Bible himself. It ended with a very loud disagreement between him and me. After that, Mom and I had our own service every Sunday until her death. Perhaps this is something you could do, too. You might even get include a group of like-minded people to join you.

      Hang in there, Lisa, and remember – God is ALWAYS in charge!
