Our nation is under attack! Jarring social changes and frightening geopolitical events pummel our sensibilities like waves endlessly breaking upon the shore. Life’s been getting a whole lot crazier with each passing year. And now, an election season fraught with epic consequences is bearing down upon us all.
What exactly is going on behind the scenes that’s causing so much confusion?
Satan has a five-part plan to disrupt and destroy the United States of America and other Western societies. Allen Parr of Allen Parr Ministries and host of the hit YouTube channel The BEAT joined me on Prophetic Perspectives to reveal Satan’s insidious plan.
#1 – Breaking Down Families
The breaking down of families isn’t something necessarily new, but currently there are a whole lot of woke organizations out there that have been fighting for evil under the banners of feminist rights and many other anti-family positions. Clearly, a war on the traditional nuclear family is being waged. As a result, divorce rates climb ever higher, even among Christians. We have more and more people giving up on their marriages. The Enemy knows that people are stronger together than apart, so Satan has made a concerted effort to tear apart the foundational structure of our society — the nuclear family.
Jesus in Matthew 19:1-10 reiterates what was written in Malachi 2:16, “For the Lord God of Israel says that He hates divorce, for it covers one’s garment with violence.” Satan absolutely hates the nuclear family because the family establishes the very foundation for a just and godly society.
As the family goes, so society goes. The Enemy knows this truth, and so he creates conflict and discord within the home for the purpose of causing families to break up. Divorce creates a significantly negative effect on children of broken homes, often causing young adults to prefer to just live together in sin or wait to get married much later in life, sometimes well past their child-rearing years.
If Satan can split children off from a nurturing family structure, then they become far more vulnerable to temptation. That’s the number one tactic in Satan’s strategy to destroy the foundations of a nation.
#2 – Abortion
If you cannot break a family, then eliminate it before it ever begins. Americans have aborted 63 million babies since 1973 when the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion. China has aborted 300 million babies in that time! Even with the overturning of Roe v. Wade, the death toll due to abortion in the US and across the globe is both shocking and genocidal.
God abhors abortion! Let’s call abortion what it truly is — murder. God in Exodus 20:13 commands, “you shalt not murder,” which is the Sixth Commandment.
The Enemy has been trying to normalize murder through abortion. Same as the homosexual agenda, Satan has been working to minimize this sin as not being a big deal. He’ll cloak murder under the auspices of a women’s right to choose, or that an unborn baby isn’t really life yet and so, abortion isn’t really murder. Satan works to place doubts in people’s minds to desensitize them to what is really happening, which when it comes to abortion, is most definitely murder in God’s eyes.
#3 – Confusion Over Sexual Identity
The third tactic Satan has been using to attack our nation, especially targeting the newest generation, is by causing great confusion over one’s gender and sexual identity. It seems like now more than ever our youth have become terribly confused about something as simple as their own gender.
In interviews on college campuses, when students are asked how many genders there are, some amazingly responded with “infinite,” and some just make up numbers because they simply have no idea. Job applications are offering the choices of “Male,” “Female,” and “Other.” Gender is also being removed from birth certificates. The Enemy is doing a job on our youth by getting them confused over the biological identity to which they were born.
And yet, the Bible declares there are only two genders. Genesis 1:27 states, “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” This verse clearly does not say “male, female, fluid, and so on” It states that God created two genders and only two genders.
Not only has confusion over gender and sexual identity been running rampant, but gargantuan efforts have been made to create sexual preference confusion as well. The LGBTQ+ agenda is being pushed on almost every television program that is available to watch. It’s blatantly obvious that the Media is strenuously attempting to normalize the homosexual agenda with regular characters that are same-sex couples or by extolling characters who are inclined to be same-sex attracted. “Family friendly” entertainment companies such as Disney and shockingly even some of our public school teachers work hard to normalize sexuality, even as young as the tender elementary ages.
We are watching in horror as the Enemy weaves into the fabric of our country the normalization of extra-marital sexuality, which is something God has clearly defined as sin (Lev. 18:22; 20:13; Rom. 1:24-27; 1 Cor. 6:9-10; 1 Tim. 1:9-10). In his insidious effort, Satan has particularly been targeting the minds of our newest generation to lead them into bondage to lust and confusion and so separate them from their Creator’s good and perfect will.
#4 – Emotional Disorders
We are living in a time when many kids suffer from low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. Children are being prescribed massive amounts of medication to deal with these emotional conditions.
And yet, our Lord Jesus says in John 10:10, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy,” but that “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” Our Creator cherishes each and every one of His creations made in His image, but Satan steals their identity away from them with Evolution and other Humanist philosophies. This tragically has resulted in a generation that sees life as pointless and concludes that its existence is meaningless.
#5 – Division
The last component of Satan’s five-part plan to destroy America involves tribalism. The Enemy attacks our nation by fomenting division. Americans are so divided right now! You cannot go on social media and have a discussion without endless arguing and strife. Social media has become one of the main tools in Satan’s insidious work toward sowing discord and division throughout our society.
Three different ways Satan causes division: race, politics, and denominationalism. Obviously, there has been a whole lot of racial tension in our country, especially since the Floyd police incident and the subsequent riots of 2020. The Enemy has been using Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality to sow discord and divide people along ethnic lines.
Politics, especially in an election year, are always divisive. Christians are called to vote for biblical values, which often puts them at odds with family and friends. Each side of the political aisle acts as if their vote determines the eternal existence of the nation, and whose hype creates even greater discord and division.
Denominations are also well known for arguing and fussing over various doctrines and other ecclesiastical subjects, instead of keeping the focus on Jesus Christ and the primary doctrines. Sadly, Christians don’t often get along very well with each other. It’s rather a sad blight on the Church. Christians should all be on the same team, and yet we’ve long been letting denominationalism break us apart. Christians don’t even realize that denominationalism is being used as a tool of the Devil to create discord within the Church.
These five key tactics are employed by Satan to wreak havoc for the purpose of eventually destroying our society. Now that we know what Satan’s five-part plan is, we can counter it. Christians remain called to continue to be “salt and light” in this fallen world. We stand for righteousness in an increasingly dark era. And, as we wait for the return of Jesus Christ, we continue to share the Gospel, all the way up until the King of Kings’ glorious return to conquer Satan and his minions of evil.

The downfall of America began when the will of man began to be exerted over the Person of God and His Scriptures through the courts of man rather than the courts of Almighty God through His Living Word. I lived through the days of the sexual/drug revolution, and the removal of prayer and the Bible from school and public squares. I remember the push to legalize birth control and I remember Roe v Wade legalizing the murder of babies which very much affected my sensibilities as a young person. Prior to that came no-fault divorce, in my day divorce was very difficult to get and I knew no one who was divorced personally, families were intact. The theory of Evolution was beginning to make its rounds at schools not long after the takeover of the public schools and young minds by the US government began, (Jimmy Carter) and the local cities and towns across America could not determine what their children were taught anymore. Sodomy became legal, then came the removal of the Ten Commandments from every public square and arena, then marriage instituted by God Himself came under attack, I witnessed the rainbow which depicted God’s promise of never destroying the earth again by water hijacked by sodomites who renamed themselves LBGTQ. Then I witnessed the Defense of Marriage Act struck down and then began the era of insanity of Gay marriage and the White House’s approval of it by being covered with lights of God’s hijacked rainbow. But, the demented minds could not stop there, we now have the idea that male and female is not true and that people are now called it and whatever else the sinful mind can come up with. Pedophiles are trying to legalize marriage with children in the same way sodomites did and they are infiltrating elementary schools with ideas that are incredibly harmful to the child. Will it get better in America, NO, too much has transpired and history shows no world power ever remained due to excesses of sin and debauchery. I am afraid for the United States and its people who once were a beacon of light to the rest of the world because of God’s Word and His Laws, that they now have cast His Word and Laws behind their backs. God will not remain silent forever, the use of His Rainbow as a sign of perversion will reap severe consequences, in an ironic twist they won’t be drowned, they will be burned up, but unfortunately for them that is still not their end according to Revelation 20. He promises to judge those who are delighting in perverting His Laws and His Word. He is coming soon and the time is near for the Church to be removed for what is about to come on this earth. There is not much time left to repent.
Compelling summary of our nation’s moral decline!
Thank you Monica! You have articulated the fall of America well. We as Christians are commanded to carry out the Great Commission and push back against the plague of immorality. When confronted with the Woke agenda we know that the Lord Jesus will return and victoriously defeat the wickedness of Satan being accepted by those whose eyes are concealed with darkness.
My prayer is to be all that God wants me to be in the midst of this barrage upon our Christian values, May my eyes be set on things above and not upon the earth; to be loving and disheartened when I see and hear people oppose the things the Lord has commanded; and to love them with unconditional love that only comes from God and have no fear in sharing the truth of the Gospel in a hostile environment.
God Bless you for sharing your most relevant comments.
Very well said. Praise God we won’t be in this mess much longer!
You are so right on and I was born in 1959,so I saw all that you did. We are in a sad place. Our God was so good to America, we were kept safe for the most part as a nation, while other countries were under great distress and oppression. How did we repay our Lord for all that He gave us? I think that this nation is in for a soon rude awakening.
Very well said, Monica. So many lucid points. Every pastor in every pulpit should be preaching the many points you have made. And for those Christians that do not belong to an organized church but recognize Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, no church can say it any better! Thanks for lighting the way!
Well said Monica.
You are totally on point, Monica. You summed it up perfectly. All we can do at this point is pray for the rapid return of our Lord Jesus Christ. I fear our country is too far gone.
Truly, we are on the same path ahead of yourselves here in New Zealand.
It’s tragic isn’t it. Here in the states I’ve always thought of New Zealand as potentially the last bastion of sanity in an otherwise chaotic world. (Well, the whole Middle Earth thing too, but that’s another discussion!) So seeing the news down there lately is disheartening. Keep the faith, Colin. Better days are coming.
As we attempt to fulfill The Great Commission to go Teach make disciples ,Baptise by Immersion and teach the Law of Yeshua . We find people see no need for Rabbi Yeshua ( Jesus ) the Messiah. God gave is the cure for Society and our individual lives . The Perfect Ten Commandments . If we use The Law to convect the hearts of people then they will see a need for a saviour and be ready to accept Gods saving grace . So many people think Salvation is Unconditional …. If this is the case then everyone is saved wheather they believe or repent or not . Of course this is not the case . Salvation is Conditional . Not by works of man . But Conditions . Belief – Repent – Confess – Immersion .see Acts 2:38 Mark 16:16 Romans 6:4
Rabbi Yeshua is The King of Israel and Lord of all. John 1:49 .
Shalom. Baruch HaShem B’Shem Yeshua
Satan uses all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders to deceive and draw a following. He wants to destroy everything that God made that is good. Only Christ’s word and sovereignty, his promises and his salvation through him can save mankind.
2 Thessalonians 2:9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
The Lord saves. God is Good. Psalm 11:7 God created a good world in the beginning but it fell because of man’s sin. Romans 5:12. Someday God will recreate the world and it will be good again. Revelation 21:1. God is stronger than evil, Matthew 13:41. God uses both good and evil for his good purposes. Genesis 50:20 and Romans 8:28.
The Bible reveals a God who hates all evil and will one day do away with it completely and forever. Revelation 20: 10-15.
We need to stay in scripture and get our wisdom from the Lord. It’s no time to relent to evil.
(Satan’s Five part plan to destroy America.) Thanks to Lamb & Lion. Forwarned is Forearmed.
Great read! Totally agree! Thank you for your valuable work!
I am now 93 and I had a strong Calvinistic upbringing in the Netherlands.We were a joyous family of 6 children with much laughter and much Bible teaching and we always went to church on Sundays and once I grew up I learned about quiet times with the Lord as a daily need. As soon as my husband went to work after breakfast, I would have my Quiet time. One hour each day, including Sundays. I had married a man from South Africa and emigrated there after the war and with the rich Huegenot background of the much maligned s.African people ( they were politically not right, but very good in many ways )
I am now blessed with 7 grand-children and 10 great grand-children. Some not one year old yet.They are all receiving Christian upbringings as a priority at schools and social life in the US and in Australia.
I am so grateful to the Lord for His Love and protection and the infilling of His Spirit. It is what this world needs, and I foresee a time when Jesus comes back to this earth and many . many millions around this world will become Christians, for Christ is Victor and He has accomplished His Victory for us, for all eternity.
He is our Savior.
I would suggest that emotional disorders, and especially anxiety, are more of a reality of being human than strictly a tool of Satan. Rather than being caused by the effects of naturalistic philosophies and an evolutionary worldview, I suspect anxiety and emotional disorders are a result of our fallen condition, effecting not only young people, (who are much more open to talk about it for sure) but people of any age. We fear change, loss, political parties we disagree with, loss of health and and many other threats to what makes us comfortable and safe. And regardless, I hope we all agree that we are instead called to seek for our comfort in Christ and make the eternal kingdom our real home. When we make this world and it’s troubles our home, we will experience anxiety since there is no way to hold onto anything in this temporary place.
You need to add the genetic modifying injection changing our God-given DNA. This has been the greatest global deception ever and unfortunately many chose trust in man over God.
Our failure to support Israel could also condemn us.
Thank you for that great, but sad summary of our nation. Lord, have mercy on this nation! We need to wake up! There is a diminished need of God in this nation because we have so very much! We are too comfortable and we take too much for granted! “I would have
despaired unless I had believed in the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord, Be strong and let your heart take courage. Wait on the Lord” Psalm 27:13-14
Come, Lord Jesus! You are our only Hope!
Concerning Sexual Identity: I think we re seeing a national rebellion from the verse of Mark 10:6: “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.”
There is an embracing of evolution coupled with an attitude of, “If God said it, then let’s rebel against it and whatever He said concerning how we got her especially male and female, let’s fight it.
I also think of Job 38:35 coupled with Daniel 12:1-4 and so many others that you well cover along with so many others verses of the 70th week and the worldwide drift to it…first a limb, then a slouch, then a trot…now a mad dash.

Jesus Christ will not come back to “Reign” on the Earth until after the Church is raptured and the Antichrist rules for Seven years. This is God’s dealing with Israel. One thing tear the Church apart and will cause many to be left behind [this is not a reference to Time LeHaye’s heresy] willl be teaching and the Church believing the NAR [New Apostolic Reformation] that is sweeping the church and leading God’s people astray. Read I Thess 4-18 and II Thess Chapter 2. The Church is what holds back the Antichrist. The true Church will be gone. The NAR people and liars and unbelievers will not make it. The Rapture must take place which will end the Church Age and Turn to Israel. Those in the Church Age who truly follow Christ will be gone- until the 7 years are ended.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie,
2Th 2:12 so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.
