The devil appears to be making a comeback within society as many people, especially the youth, are rejecting God while the expression of religion is being heavily suppressed. We are now seeing certain forms of entertainment and music making the fallen angel, Lucifer, into a rising star. The possession of the masses is very easy to achieve. It is evident today that what was once sacred is now becoming a profane exercise in suffering and oppression. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with author, Jay Dyer about FALLEN ANGEL RISING STAR –  A FIGHT FOR SATANIC RITE.





The other night when we were reporting about the Davos meeting, I was reminded of what World Economic Forum member Yuval Noah Harari said about God. He stated that “God is dead – it just takes a while to get rid of the body.” It has also been stated by Joseph Campbell that the best way to kill God is to ignore him.

Lately, news headlines and certain forms of entertainment and music have made the fallen angel Lucifer into a rising star and it appears that people are now threatened by people who wish to express or impose their religious beliefs on people, whether it be the devil or Jesus or something else.

A man inside the Mall of America last week was ordered by security guards to remove his t-shirt that read “Jesus is the only way” in a viral confrontation that has sparked online outrage.

The man’s bright yellow shirt read “Jesus saves” on the front and “Jesus is the only way” on the back with the “Coexist” symbol, which represents peace among different religions, crossed out.

Security guards told the man that other shoppers at the mall were complaining about how they were offended by the shirt.

“Jesus is associated with religion and it’s offending people,” one of the guards tells the man.

The man tries to reason with the guards, telling them that he didn’t speak or say anything to anyone — in terms of preaching.

He was removed from the mall for “preaching the gospel” on another occasion, he said in the video.

A spokesperson for the Mall of America said that one week prior to the t-shirt incident, the man was “issued a 24-hour trespass for soliciting guests.”

Mall policy forbids “picketing, demonstrating, soliciting, protesting or petitioning” on the premises.

The security guard said the man’s religious t-shirt still counted as soliciting even if he was not actively preaching.

“Again, sir, it is religious soliciting,” he told him in the video. “There is no soliciting allowed on mall property, which is private property.”

He added that people also said they were offended by the shirt.

The mall’s policy also disapproves of “apparel that has obscene language, obscene gestures or racial/religious/ethnic slurs that are likely to create a disturbance,” according to its website.

I’m giving you a couple of options,” the guard told the man, who was wearing a long-sleeved shirt underneath the T-shirt. “You can take your shirt off and you can go to Macy’s and you can do your shopping — or you could leave the mall. Those are your only options right now.”

However, the man was eventually allowed to keep his shirt on and go about his shopping, a spokesperson for the mall said.

‘” After a brief interaction, the guest was not required to change his shirt and was allowed to remain at the Mall,” the representative told the Daily Mail.

Many Christians said they were shocked to learn the video was taken in the US.

Again it is not just a freedom of speech issue it is a freedom of reach issue.

The bigger question is should the man sue the Mall of America for violating his first amendment rights? Is it a case of private property and rules of conduct? He really doesn’t have to shop in the store.

Finally, there is the question of whether or not people are intolerant of religious iconography in a public place — and as Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “God is dead in the marketplace.”

This argument has been bantered about in a lot of Christian discussions about persecution. However there may be a deeper context to the intolerance and that is we are at a point in time where religious views are changing and Gods of the past are being worshipped, Pagan religions are now appealing to young people and Satanism is fighting for legitimacy in this demon-haunted world.

The devil is now in demand in many ways these days,

The character of Lucifer and Satan has become a recurring role in a variety of films and TV shows lately, acting not only as a manifestation of our darker tastes but also as a projection of the fears of society in the modern day.

With such an influx of the Prince of Hell not occurring since the growth of the horror genre in the 60s and 70s, does this mean anything for our favorite forms of entertainment and should we get accustomed to his existence?

We are just a few weeks into 2023 and the accusations of Satanism and blasphemy have been thrown at Lady Gaga for the song Bloody Mary –which has been dubbed over the Dance scene in The Wednesday Addams TV show. The song was dubbed over the scene for Tik Tok,

The original song in the film was Goo Goo Muck by The Cramps.

But in Lady Gaga’s song, the lyrics are triggering accusations of promoting satanism,

The lyrics are:

I’ll dance, dance, dance

With my hands, hands, hands

Above my head, head, head

Like Jesus said.

Christian Tik Tok users have been saying that the song is blasphemous and promotes Satanism.

I suppose it does if you are into Cartoon Satanism. This certainly appears to be a reach — but I guess people are militant.

The Devil has become a prominent antagonist on our screens, featuring heavily in the chilling adventures of Sabrina, which was sued by the Satanic Temple for using a Baphomet statue, to American Horror Story: Apocalypse, which also was sued by the Church of Satan for misrepresenting its founder, Anton Lavey,

There is also the controversial cartoon Little Demon and an Old favorite Lucifer, which has somehow survived the cancellation of the series. It was later picked up by Netflix.

This is not the first time that the Devil has taken center stage in entertainment, however. Throughout the ’60s and ’70s, the horror genre rinsed Satan’s image for all it could, to strike up fear and indulgence in the cinema form.

With the domination of movies such as Rosemary’s Baby (1968), Which featured the Iconic Time Magazine Cover asking is God dead? The Exorcist (1973) and The Omen (1976), Satan had a starring role for a short while until he went back into hiding. The depiction within the horror genre tends to remain true to the typical image of the figure, with many of these films presenting him as an omnipresent force, that possesses, influences sin and sends his demon children to do his evil for him; all to the enjoyment of the audience.

It is like the line from Mel Brooks’s, Space Balls.. “Evil will always Triumph because Good is Dumb” or at least it is very entertaining.

But what kind of effect does it have and in the long run are people actually warming up to the prince of Darkness?

Well, it might–as Satanic sects are luring young people into their fold.

Young people are disillusioned with “outdated” and “dogmatic” traditional religions and are turning to Satanism as an “alternative” to “stuffy”, traditional faiths.

Satanic groups around the world claim that the opportunities Satanism offers people to engage in activism and campaign on issues such as gender and sexuality is part of the appeal for the younger members, particularly those who are increasingly less likely to declare themselves as Christian.

Christianity battles to appeal to younger generations and remains divided on the issue of gay marriage, with bishops preparing for a historic vote on the matter next month.

There has also been an uptick in other less traditional religions, with the number of pagans up from 56,620 to 73,733 – as well as a rise in the number of Animists – who believe that all natural things have a soul. They increased from 541 in 2011 to 802 in 2021.

Academics claim that this is indicative of a wider trend. Dr. David Robertson, senior lecturer in religious studies at The Open University, said: “The appeal of a lot of new religions, including Satanism, is that they offer a form of religion that directly addresses the social issues that matter more to the young people, especially their willingness to be activists.

“And not only do they offer an opportunity for this sort of stuff to actively challenge laws, but also to appeal to the activists among the young people.”

Professor Linda Woodhead, head of the department of theology and religious studies at King’s College London, added that Satanism “is a young person’s religion” but that “the bigger phenomenon we’re seeing is the incredible diversification of the religious and spiritual landscape”. “There’s now a lot of solitary exploration, particularly with the internet, and you can find anything to fit your particular identity, interests, values or beliefs.”

However, The Rev.Diarmaid MacCulloch, Emeritus Professor of the History of the Church at the University of Oxford, said: “I’d say that these are all symptoms of people who’ve been disappointed by other religions, or who may only know them superficially, and who are looking for a system of belief to make their own since our society encourages individual consumer choice and research.”

Contrary to the stereotypes, only a fringe minority of Satanists actually worship the devil. Instead, the religion’s fascination with Satan is more metaphorical, identifying with the figure of the rebel, as epitomized in the protagonist of John Milton’s 17th-century epic poem, Paradise Lost.

Satanists generally do not believe in a higher power, and instead revolve around a religion “of the self”, believing that it is up to individuals to define their own moral code, and to develop themselves as their own Godheads.

There is not much known about Theistic Satanism where the darker rituals like blood drinking and spirit cooking are ways of showing their devotion to a dark force– be it the devil or some other demonic entity.

Recently, archaeologists were called in after the remains of a concrete “altar” and a pagan metal plaque were discovered on Whinny Hill above St. Margaret’s Loch in Scotland.

The ornate metal plaque, which experts have confirmed to as likely to be pagan, was found embedded in the ground within a sod of turf cut in a triangle shape. It depicted two figures – a male figure with horns and a female figure in a surrender pose – set within a pentagram within a circle.

The pentagram is a recognized symbol of paganism and is also used in devil worship.

The second find was a concrete “altar” with display objects found next to the plinth. Both were buried beneath topsoil.

The two figures are the Horned God and the Goddess of Water.

The pentagram has long been associated with paganism. However, it is used by so many different groups – including many branches of paganism, as well as LaVeyan Satanism – that it is difficult to determine who might be responsible for these objects.

There are also a number of rune stones embedded in the concrete triangle around the plaque, as well as a number of small figures, one apparently of an angel.

The discovery is not some ancient artifact but something made of concrete — it is a pagan tradition to use natural objects like a stone for rituals.

This would indicate that rituals were performed and someone buried the artifact to hide the evidence.

I guess this is the New Age , the new normal and people wish to kill the past — but there is so much to learn before one chapter closes and another one opens in the devil’s playbook.

We have been told on various occasions that the gates of hell have opened. We have also been told that various black masses have been performed to conjure various demons from Asmodeus, Abyzou, Pazuzu, and Ahriman Angra Manyu.

I have been thinking that many people are cynical about the devil and the power that exists as you walk the left-hand path. However, the devil seems to be making a comeback and there is plenty of empirical evidence to suggest that perhaps the gates have been left ajar and the devil is putting on a remarkable show of evil and oppression.

The evidence for a dark order of demons working overtime is overwhelming. The dark command excels at obfuscation, masquerades, illusion, warped truth, confusion, false flags, committing crimes and letting patsies take the blame, calling evildoers good and the least evil bad, and setting others up.

We see Satan’s handy work when we hear of the various provocations, between police and the people they serve. We see the cryptocracy that is run by various Luciferian henchmen who resort to promising all manner of things which are sometimes but rarely delivered.

We can assume that the price of the soul is up for the highest bidder, We are now seeing that the tool of the threat of death is being used as a way for people to absolutely lose their humanity –and it is effective as many people are now rejecting faith — and replacing it with the worship of the elixir that has been provided by science.

There has to be a unified trust in something that promises a cure or more life. Even though we are seeing that even when it is given — there is still that chance that you will die.

Everyone dies — but we should not let its shadow tell us that hope is all but extinguished.

Demonic agents can masquerade as pious religious authorities. They are there to enter in the doors of churches and tarnish the foundations and cornerstones of any religious organization. The demonic agent is deviously cunning and straightforward. He can talk you into making something immoral keen to the intellect.

The themes of the enemy within the political spectrum and in the sacred realms of the various religions have often bred the suspicious 0phantoms that many gave labeled the fallen ones or the demons.

It begins to become more and more evident that we invite the demons and evil spirits into our world by not controlling our bloodletting, our xenophobia, 0our militant bullying, and our ever-increasing need to find a scapegoat.

The mind is a very fragile thing, it can be broken open and destructive thoughts can be placed into the collective consciousness or zeitgeist.

The possession of the masses is very easy to achieve.

It is evident today — and what was once sacred is now becoming a profane exercise in suffering and oppression.

    A song from the band Ghost that is titled Call me little sunshine is about Satan reaching out and offering companionship and help to those who need it. He promises to always be there for those who ask. Its a good example of Satan being popularized.

    Last night I had a more unusual dream than usual.

    I was in a room with a group of people, I seemed to know them but could not say who they were.

    A door to another room or closet opened, the people were spooked out, they said something scary in there.

    The dream sequence seemed to repeat, this time I was defiant.

    Out came a whatever in a WHITE hooded outfit like monks & grim reapers wore but white. Inside I could see what seemed to be a death’s head. ‘It’ wanted someone to grab on to.

    Something out of the Book Of Revelations.
