by Tim Taylor, July 8, 2020: There is a precept in war that says you ought to know your enemy. The principle of objective says it this way. The objective must be clearly defined. If it is not, casualties mount and defeat or stalemate is inevitable (see Developing Apostolic Strategy). The real enemy manifesting through BLM has not been identified by most. It is actually demons working through people. In fact, that's part of the strategy of their founders.
Consider this report by Religion News Service from June 15, 2020 in Black Lives Matter is "a spiritual movement," says co-founder Patrisse Cullors. The article says and note, I've added my own underlines;
Excerpt 1: Abdullah and Cullors touched on the practice of calling out the names of the victims that they advocate for in protests and demonstrations. It's kind of a way to invoke their spirits, Abdullah said.
Uplifting the names of victims goes beyond creating hashtags, Cullors said.
“It is literally almost resurrecting a spirit so they can work through us to get the work that we need to get done,” she said.
By highlighting their names, Cullors said she feels "personally connected and responsible and accountable to them, both from a deeply political place but also from a deeply spiritual place.”
Cullors touched on West African traditions that center on remembering ancestors.
As part of the ritual, people recited the names of "those taken by state violence before their time — ancestors now being called back to animate their own justice," Farrag wrote.
After each name, Abdullah poured libations on the ground as the group in return chanted "Asé." The Yoruba term is "often used by practitioners of Ifa, a faith and divination system that originated in West Africa," Farrag wrote.
Abdullah on Saturday said it took her almost a year before she realized Black Lives Matter was much more than a racial and social justice movement.
"At its core, it's a spiritual movement," she said.
Cullors said it became clear to her they needed "spiritual protection" ...
Bottomline, this practice invites demons to work through people in the Black Lives Matter organization. That in and of itself should make things abundantly clear who the real enemy is. by Tim Taylor, July 6, 2020:
