When I sit down to write, what appears on the screen isn’t always what I intended. I didn’t intend to make that personal connection to the Ukrainian genocide yesterday, and it was a bit of a surprise to me to see that connection appear in my writing.
The problem is that this parallel with the Holodomor is real. It has happened before, and it will happen again. And YOU are the target.
You must believe it.

True Evil Exists and YOU Are the Target
The problem is that we have a hard time truly understanding the kind of evil that would murder tens and hundreds of millions of people. We can’t even grasp the possibility of this. It’s too vast. It’s too big. So, it’s just…
…a number on a page.
Concerning the Ukrainian Genocide, Stalin is reported to have said:
“If only one man dies of hunger, that is a tragedy. If millions die, that’s only statistics.”
Joseph Stalin knew that he could plan the genocide of millions upon millions, and it wouldn’t matter – because after a certain point, they’re just numbers on a page.
We just cannot conceive of this level of evil. It’s too much for us. And, the truly evil understand our dilemma very, very well and have based their success on it.
When Jesus was concluding the parable of the ‘unjust steward’, He said this:
…for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. – Luke 16:8b
A good person CANNOT understand true evil. There’s something inside of you that cannot imagine doing what Stalin did. You’re completely and utterly repulsed by it, and you don’t even want to think about it.
I have spent a long, long time considering the insanity of true evil, and even I struggle to believe the truth of these things. My wife can tell you that I’ve spent a lot of time raging at the complete insanity of the evil that is happening. How can anyone be so thoroughly vile?
How is this even possible?
The problem is that it’s not just possible, it’s being planned. And, YOU are the target.
YOU are the Target!
I do not understand the conflict between God and Satan. I really don’t. I don’t even understand why Satan could do something so insane as to oppose God in the first place. LA Marzulli refers to it as The Cosmic Chess Match, and that sounds like a good name for it. Unfortunately, most of the pieces on God’s side of the board don’t understand the enemy.
Here’s Sun Tzu‘s comment about knowing the enemy:
If you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle. – The Art of War, Chapter 3
I know that Sun Tzu is NOT a prophet of God, and his rules of war are not the Bible. But, his words are still true.
Do you know our enemy?
Do you even know yourself?
The problem is that most of us do not know our enemy. We don’t even know that we HAVE an enemy – let alone having the understanding of who he is and what he’s like. Worse, deep down, we don’t believe God’s description of how vile and evil our enemy is.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. – John 10:10
You must understand how implacable and evil our enemy is. His desire is to steal everything, kill everyone and then destroy what’s left. And, our churches have failed in their to duty to help us understand that.
They have also failed in their duty to help us understand our sinfulness and show us how vulnerable we are to sin.
When was the last time your pastor talked about how vulnerable to sin, you are?
When was the last time your pastor even mentioned the WORD sin?
Is it any wonder that, in the words of Sun Tzu, we are imperiled in EVERY battle?
So, let me tell you right here, right now, that you have an enemy that wants to destroy everything you have – and your soul. He wants to corrupt every connection with God that you have. He wants to infect himself into every part of your life…
…he wants to kill you.
Do you get that?
The problem is that I don’t know if we have enough time for you to get it before Satan’s plans sweep you away. You may just have to find someone who does understand what Satan is up to… and then do what he tells you to do.
Don’t wait to understand what’s happening. There’s no time for that. Just get to safety, and try to figure it all out later.
Planned Financial Collapse
Remember what FDR said:
In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way. – Franklin D. Roosevelt
Don’t worry about understanding that. Just understand that a financial collapse is on its way, and it is aimed at destroying everything that you have.
This is planned, and it is truly evil.
Are you ready for this?
