Many Americans support the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement because, we actually agree with the statement by which it is named. Of course, black lives matter!
But at its core, BLM is dark and evil.
The organization’s founders, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi are known as community organizers, but there’s more to the story…much more. You’ve likely seen or heard about the recently resurfaced 2015 interview wherein Cullors revealed its true underpinnings:
“We do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia, in particular, are trained organizers; we are trained Marxists.”
Karl Marx, the founder of Marxism, was a Satanist. In his poem Human Pride, he admitted his desire was not to improve the world, but to destroy it:
With disdain I will throw my gauntlet full in the face of the world,
And see the collapse of this pygmy giant whose fall will not stifle my ardor.
Then will I wander godlike and victorious through the ruins of the world
And, giving my words an active force, I will feel equal to the Creator.
Sound familiar? Oh, I don’t know… maybe a bit like Lucifer?
Not only are BLM’s founders trained in Marxism, an ideology with demonic roots, but its founders are actively operating in the demonic realm, here and now.
“Spirituality is at the center of BLM,” said Cullors during a June 13 Zoom call with Dr. Melina Abdullah, co-founder of BLM Los Angeles, as they discussed the methods by which they “practice traditions from West African places.”
“When we come out into the streets, and we pray – the first thing we do when we hear of a murder is we come out and we pray, we pour libation we built with community where the person’s life was stolen,” said Abdullah.
The term libation is, by definition, “the act of pouring a liquid as a sacrifice (as to a deity).”
As Abdullah described the act performed on the street, she added, “And it took almost a year for me to realize that this movement is much more than a racial and social justice movement. At its core, it’s a spiritual movement. Because we are literally standing on spilled blood. And you can’t pretend like that’s work – that’s just like some organizing work.”
Hebah Farrag, assistant director of research at the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture, examined one of Abdullah’s rituals. And she explained that as Abdullah was pouring libations on the ground, those present chanted “Asé.” She clarified that the Yoruba term is “often used by practitioners of Ifa, a faith and divination system that originated in West Africa” – occult practices. (Emphasis added.)
And Cullors did not argue with Farrag’s assessment, but she actually pointed to the article and its writer to help the viewers properly understand the spiritual foundation and practices of the BLM movement.
“It’s a very important practice,” said Cullors. “Hashtags are for us way more than a hashtag. It is literally, almost resurrecting spirits so they can work through us to get the work that we need to get done. I started to feel personally connected and responsible and accountable to them. Both from a deeply political place, but also from a deeply spiritual place.”
Abdulah explained that when they “say the names,” they “invoke that spirit, and then those spirits actually become present with you.”
“Maybe I’m sharing too much,” she said, “but we become very intimate with the spirits that we call on regularly.”
Abraham Hamilton, host of AFR’s The Hamilton Corner covered this story Tuesday and described the Ifa practices.
“They’re not doing what you think they’re doing,” he insisted. “You think they are just honoring people. They are conjuring up spirits!”
It is no surprise that BLM has also taken under its wings the LGBTQ cause – a movement that, by its very essence, is shaking its fist at the Creator.
BLM is an anti-God organization that, to many, is appearing as an “angel of light,” a benevolent cause. As of mid-August, 49% of registered voters support BLM according to Civiqs, an online survey research firm.
The compassion of many believers, including Christian leaders, is too often misdirected through support of BLM. And others are attracted to a different kind of lure – the bait of victimhood, a mindset that enslaves rather than liberates.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 5:6). All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
God has given us all that we need through His Word and His Spirit to love our neighbors. Love is not found in darkness. Love is found in light.
