|"If a man
should conquer in battle a thousand and a thousand more, and another man should
conquer himself, his would be the greater victory, because the greatest of
victories is the victory over oneself; and neither the gods in heaven above nor
the demons down below can turn into defeat the victory of such a man." -
strategic-level spiritual warfare
"It was exhilarating, thrilling, reviving,
rewarding - everything an
warrior was made for!
Host of Heaven had waited so
long and had built up such fervor that when the signal finally came, they broke
over the crests of the mountains on every side like a violent,
shimmering ocean wave and
showered down like hail upon the dark cloud of demons in the valley, scattering
them like dust before the wind,
routing, battling, swinging, and pushing down, down, down toward the Aspen
Tal, at the crest of the wave, dove like
a hawk, his wings straight back, his
sword a needle of light at
the end of his outstretched arm.
His war cry could be heard
above all the tumult, and his sword was the first to strike.
They flew into the heart of the black
cloud, piercing the boiling thunderhead.
Swords of spirits

batting demons, mowing them down, flipping them sideways to meet other blades,
kicking and grabbing what hides he could find, cutting a widening swath,
gutting the cloud at its core." - Frank E. Perretti
spiritual warfare, popular in the Apostolic Culmination, often involves going
to the highest place in a city or region, like a mountain top, with attempts to
bind "territorial spirits," the "high-ranking demons" that rule over
specific geographical regions.
The idea is that -
if their demonic grip is broken -
then the people who live in that region will respond en masse to the
Word of God, and they will
be freed of evil strongholds of lust,
greed, envy, gluttony, sloth, pride and wrath.
Many fellowships have eagerly
adopted strategic-level spiritual warfare, believing it's the key to fulfilling
the "Great Commission" which will usher in the "Kingdom Age".
Adherents take part in showy ritualized ceremonies, where they seek to
directly confront territorial spirits by name.

with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that
the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace
unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done
purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish
to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance
occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational
religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no
tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a
perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of
the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
