TW: Colorado Massacre; Reader ‘Demonic’ Possession?

Barack Obama Speaking on Telephone About the Massacre with Mayor of Aurora, Colorado


The latest LCG TW News & Prophecy has the following:

Theater terror in Denver.
Last Friday morning at the midnight opening of the latest Batman movie, a lone gunman burst into a packed theater in the Denver, Colorado suburb of Aurora, set off a smoke bomb and tear gas, and began firing his weapon into the crowd (Good Morning America , July 20, 2012). Survivors recalled the terrifying confusion and panic of those trapped inside the theater. Twelve people were killed and many more injured before the 24-year-old man ceased his rampage (ibid.). Authorities report the apparently deranged gunman claimed to be the villain in the Batman movie, and acted very oddly during his questioning and court appearance (Good Morning America , July 25, 2012).

In response to the shooting, “All over the nation, gun-sellers are reporting big increases in sales in the wake of the Colorado movie-theater shootings” (, July 25, 2012). People are buying weapons out of fear and a desire to protect themselves and their families.

This event in Aurora is tragic and heart-rending. True Christians should always view such tragedies with deep sadness and a greater desire for God’s Kingdom to come soon! God expects His people to “sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within” the land (Ezekiel 9:4).

But we should also expect such events to occur with increasing frequency as the end of the age approaches. God warned ancient Israel and her modern descendants that “…I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart,” because of their sins (Leviticus 26:14-16).

We live in a God-rejecting age when the ways that lead to peace, God’s laws, are no longer honored or obeyed. And as a result, we experience the consequences of rejecting Him. God speed the day when this powerful prophecy is fulfilled: “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4).

I quoted the following scriptures when I initially posted about this:

23 ‘Make a chain,
For the land is filled with crimes of blood,
And the city is full of violence.
24 Therefore I will bring the worst of the Gentiles,
And they will possess their houses;
I will cause the pomp of the strong to cease,
And their holy places shall be defiled.
25 Destruction comes;
They will seek peace, but there shall be none. (Ezekiel 7:23-25)

America will be consumed by violence, though the final amount will come from external, primarily Gentile, sources, as the above teaches. Abortion, frequent support of war, violent sports, etc. all identify the USA now.

A reader, and regular supplier of news items, sent the following, which I am posting in its entirety:

NOTE: Per the book “Switching Time“, which documented the woman with 17 demons, the victim has no memory of events when a demon takes over. The Colorado shooter now claims the same symptoms, indicating it may well have been a demon…
“Routinely, she “loses” parts of her day, finding herself in places she doesn’t remember going to or being told about conversations she doesn’t remember having.”

“When Karen Overhill entered psychiatrist Richard Baer’s office in 1989, she complained of memory loss, and physical pain and depression. There were whole parts of her day unaccounted for, and she’d often find herself in places she didn’t remember going.”

Colorado shooting: James Holmes claims he can’t remember killings

The 24-year-old repeatedly asked prison guards “Why am I here?” and said he had no recollection of the killings during a midnight premiere of the new Batman film, according to the New York Daily News.

Now, while I will not declare that the woman who allegedly had 17 demons for sure had that many (or any at all), she very well may have.  And as I wrote earlier this week, the Colorado shooter was at least influenced by Satan, and may also have been demonically-possessed (see Was the Colorado Shooter Demonically-Influenced?).

The death and destruction were unnecessary and many lives were hurt by what the shooter did.
