Army Sergeant Delivers Fiery Message About Spiritual Forces Behind the Paris Terror Attacks and the ‘Chaos Going on All Over the World’ Nov. 18, 2015 12:08pm Dave Urbanski theblaze.com
“…“ISIS and all these other things that are going on in the world, it’s just the enemy’s pawns and his temper tantrum. Why is he throwing a temper tantrum? Because he knows his time is short. He knows that he’s fighting a losing battle.”….
Rogers pointed to one main target of the Islamic State to show that the devil of the Bible is influencing them: “You look at ISIS, who they they hate? They hate Christians, they are going around putting Christians in cages, setting them on fire, cutting their heads off.”
He added that the devil “hates us … because we have the light and the fire of God inside of us” and that he targets those who “allow themselves to be used by him to carry out his anger … He’s roaming the earth like a lion, seeking who he can devour.”
Rogers added that the devil is using events like the Paris terror attacks, 9/11 and and the “chaos going on all over the world” to cause division and distraction.
“He is trying to come against us with fear,” Rogers said. “He is trying to come against us with division. That’s why you’ve got ISIS and Black Lives Matter and racism and all this mess going on in the world.”
But the sergeant turned his declaration to Jesus Christ: “There is nothing bigger and badder than the power of Christ. There is nothing bigger and badder than the Word of God.”
“When I see stuff going on in the news, I’m not going to get scared. I’m not going to panic,” he said while cautioning viewers about what the Bible says will happen in the future.
“Jesus is coming, you all better wake up,” Rogers said. “The signs of the times are very clear. He’s about to crack the sky any day, and I hope that you are ready.”

Is the Devil Real? jw.org
“The Bible’s answer
Yes, the Devil is real. He is “the ruler of the world,” a spirit creature who became wicked and rebelled against God. (John 14:30; Ephesians 6:11, 12) The Bible reveals the Devil’s personality through these names and descriptions:…”
In Hebrew, satan means adversary. The satan of the Old Testament is a description, not a proper name (and thus why I do not capitalize it here). This is a figure that works with God’s full permission, tempting believers to doubt their faith, separating the true believers from those who just pay lip service.
Muslims have two terms for their Satanic figure. The first is Iblis, which is his proper name (just as Christians use Satan or Lucifer). The second is shaitan, which is a noun or an adjective, describing any being that rebels against God. Ergo, there is one Iblis, and he is a shaitan, but there are other shaitans as well….
