Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson starred in the 1989 Batman movie. Michael Keaton played Bruce Wayne/Batman, and Jack Nicholson played Jack Napier/the Joker.
When Bruce Wayne was a child, his parents were robbed and murdered by a younger Jack Napier and his buddies. Napier didn’t murder young Wayne, but as he left the child standing in the street, he said to him, “Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?”
Those words have always stayed with me, and they grow stronger and louder every day that I look around and witness this country being destroyed by socialist thugs. In my opinion, we are so far gone there is no turning back. Satan has painted a masterpiece in the artwork of the damned.
For several years now, we have been dancing with the devil in the pale moonlight. He came to us, asked for our hand on the dance floor, and we readily obliged. This conniving genius of evil has filled our hearts with his own triune recipe of a god. We have eagerly accepted his god, and under the pale light of the moon, we dance to his music.
Strangely enough, Satan’s message hasn’t changed a bit. It is still the same ole claptrap he sold Eve in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:1-5).
He got her thinking of pleasing herself (humanism). Then he got her mind on things that could please her, in this case, the forbidden fruit (materialism). Lastly, he had her thinking of the pleasure the fruit would bring her (hedonism). There you have the triune god of hell: humanism (love of self), materialism (love of things) and hedonism (love of pleasure).
Is it any different today? It is the same old package. Satan even uses the same wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows. Nothing has changed.
We, the citizens of the United States of America (generally speaking of course), are for self, things and pleasure … humanism, materialism and hedonism. All we can think about is, “I want that because it will give me pleasure.” We carry armloads of pleasurers in the front door, while Satan hauls our freedoms out the back door.
Christianity is exactly the opposite. In Christianity (TRUE Christianity), we set our minds upon Jesus our Savior, not self. We accept His will, not things, to please us. Our pleasure comes in being obedient to His will.
With Satan’s triune god, all the focus is on us, things to please us, and our pleasure. With the triune God of Heaven, our focus is upon God … the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- God the Father gave His Son that we might be saved.
- God the Son paid our sin debt.
- God the Holy Spirit guides us to the Son and keeps those who believe.
The love of God grows within us, and we love our neighbor in turn. We begin taking our mind off us and thinking of others. We want others to know Christ.
- Humanism stokes the selfishness that already exists within us.
- Materialism gives us quick sugar highs and crushing disappointments.
- Hedonism gives us a pleasure that never satisfies.
If there is any wisdom at all, you must admit that we are a nation of selfish, materialistic, pleasure-seeking people. We just can’t seem to get enough of Satan’s “freedom” to do as we please.
Every sin known to man is prevalent in this country, boiling over into the lives of millions. Even the churches are not exempt. Most churches in this country are a blight upon humanity, and are just as infested with sin as the world they have allowed to come in.
I am reminded of King Belshazzar, whom God gave a message by writing it on the wall of his palace (Daniel 5). I wonder each day, “Is it today that God will say, “Enough?” He closed the curtain on King Belshazzar. Do we REALLY think we can get by with thumbing our nose at God?
There are perverse atrocities taking place in this country that I would have never dreamed in a thousand years would come to our shores. Yet, here we are. There are no longer just a few rotten apples in the bushel; nearly all the apples are rotten to the core.
Decent Americans are having the excrement from this triune god being shoved down their throats and told to like it. The world speaks of love but vomits out hate.
We are sheep being led to the slaughter, and most don’t even know it. They just keep dancing with the devil in the pale moonlight.
Satan is the god of this world, and his message has been infused into the hearts of all mankind, not just Eve. Satan’s religion has tickled the fancy of most in our society. They come out of the closets. They silence the pulpits. They murder the young. They open the restrooms. They use others to steal, kill and destroy in advancing their cause, but payday is coming. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon, and then they will run like scurrying roaches when the lights are turned on.
The masses in our land have given themselves over to the ideas of this triune god of the land. Selfishness, materialism and pleasure are at an all-time high. As long as their itch is scratched, they don’t care that their soul is being drawn away from the one true Trinity of Heaven.
I heard just a few minutes ago that the governor of California is mandating that churches not meet and there be no in-home Bible studies, but it’s still okay to riot, pillage and destroy.
Most of our leadership (political, religious, etc.) is so rotten they seem to have already sold their souls to the Devil. They have no true affection for anyone but themselves. Sadly, most of the populace don’t seem to care as long as they get something in return.
The Hallmark channel we thought would stay the course of decency has now stated it will provide homosexual entertainment. As Ruth Graham once said, “If God doesn’t judge America, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
The handwriting is on the wall. We must decide now whom we are going to follow. Do we dance with the devil in the pale moonlight, or do we walk hand in hand with the Lord Jesus Christ in the New Jerusalem?
