SHADOWLAND—PART 6: The Powers Behind Shadowland’s Growing Body Count Lists

IMPORTANT EDITOR’S NOTE: Starting with natural events most people can comprehend but ultimately leading to the supra-natural, this online investigative series highlights just a hint of the groundwork covered in Dr. Thomas Horn’s upcoming expose, Shadowland (FROM DEFENDER PUBLISHING IN MARCH).

PART 1 / PART 2 / PART 3 / PART 4 / PART 5

In my upcoming book Shadowland I introduce the idea that murderous egregores (as Jesus defined them) or Satan’s legions by any other name can play a role in geopolitics and cultural phenomenon including America’s current descent into chaos, and this by design.

Years ago, I recall watching when for the first time in history Catholic authorities allowed network television to broadcast an exorcism. Permission was given to ABC’s “20/20” to cover the event, and on April 5, 1991 the ritual was televised. The extraordinary moment was a first for network programming, yet something about the show caused my thoughts to wander. In the past I had been involved with cases of exorcism (on two published accounts I and others actually witnessed ‘manifestations’ outside our understanding of physics), but now I questioned if perhaps we were missing something bigger—a comparison between what leads to individual possession and a wider cultural phenomenon known in fashionable theology as “geographical demonic strongholds.”

I soon questioned that if personal conduct was one route to opening doors to diabolical invasion on the individual level, might nations similarly come under siege to a larger “hive” of nefarious powers through collective behavioral or gestured invitation to evil by those having governing authority? Most adults are aware that if people who preside over legislative bodies sense public apathy, they may abandon their responsibility to govern for the good of the people and in worse case scenarios begin using their positions in power for their own elitist or even occultist aspirations. If this is allowed to continue via the public’s indifference and/or lawmakers turning a blind eye, the result can be, according to demonology and select case studies, the regional increase of evil supernaturalism.

To some believers, the origins of this phenomenon began in the distant past when “a fire in the minds” of angels caused Lucifer to exalt himself above the good of God’s Creation. The once glorified spirit was driven by an unequivocal thirst to rule, conquer, and dominate. His fall spawned similar lust among his followers, which continues today among human agents of dark authority who guard privileged “cause and effect” relationships between supernaturalism and the opportunity for wealth and lordship over societies.

The objectives of the occult masters and the very real forces they serve is typically unperceived by average citizens, yet according to sacred texts such a collaboration exists between unregenerate architects of society and fallen angels. If the electorate becomes bewitched of this truth, humans in league with demons can increase their control of the machine of municipal government through sophisticated networks of both visible and invisible principalities. This happens subconsciously or intentionally among those vulnerable to sinister activity.

Multitudes may never comprehend this fact, and that is why some cannot see beyond “flesh and blood” or hold as real the hungry ambitions of “principalities… powers… rulers of darkness… and spiritual wickedness in high places” (Eph. 6:12). Nevertheless a complete evaluation of recent American history must take into account not only the visible agents of government, but the significant interaction between spiritual and human personalities.

Among the great religions, there is belief that three sources of spiritual power affect nations: 1) divine influence, proceeding from the domain of God; 2) satanic influence, coming from the sphere of Satan; and 3) human influence. This third influence, being neutral, is available as a conduit for good or evil as it submits to divine or satanic control.

Throughout history, there have been governments and leaders that resisted evil and adhered to the statutes of God. These spoiled the strategies of corrupt minions, both visible and invisible, and made possible the blessing of those nations.

Conversely, there have been times in history when bureaucracy turned its back on higher law, opening the door for “evil angels” (Ps. 78:49) to pervade the direction of societies. These were times when darkness and/or Machiavellian trickery took root in the mindset of majorities, and systems of government and philosophy were influenced by fiendish unseen counterparts.



As an example, to the ancient city of Corinth, a city known for its pride, ostentation, and lasciviousness (which not only was tolerated, but consecrated through the worship of Venus), Paul said to the Church, “the god of this world [Satan] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not…” (2 Cor. 4:4).

Supernaturalism ruling from the air above Corinth “blinded” the perception of Corinthians until the latter were incapable of recognizing their moral and social decay.

It’s interesting that the Apostle would send this warning to the city of Corinth—a Greek prototype of America’s wealth, military strength, and great mental activity.[i] Outwardly, one would have thought these educated Gnostics were well equipped intellectually to understand the spiritual ramifications and social significance of their actions. Yet, Paul said their minds had been blinded by the god of this world. Their superior human knowledge, though impressive to intelligentsia, had not protected the Corinthians from the subtle influences filling the atmosphere around them.

It is within this unseen arena of malevolent rulers that some men are organized. Under dark influence, they become orchestrated within a great evil system (or empire) described in various passages as a satanic order. In more than thirty important biblical texts, the Greek New Testament employs the term kosmos, which describes this invisible organization or “government behind government” where human ego—separated from God—becomes hostile to the service of others while viewing mankind as personal commodities.

Emanating from this kosmos, “old ones” master the air in and around willing men’s minds. These deceiving spirits and their invisible cronies operate behind and within influential human colleagues, ordering the activities of entities under their command until every stage of earthly administrations can be influenced by their presence.

According to the Bible, it is this dominion that stands at odds with communities of the world. With vivid testimony to this, Satan offered Jesus all the power and glory of the governments of this world, saying, “All this power [control] will I give thee, and the glory of them [earthly cities]: for that is delivered unto me: and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine” (Luke 4:6-7).

Jesus declined the offer from the “prince of the powers of the air.”

Throughout history, other have not.

This is a picture of a global system average people never comprehend. If most could see through this veil into the invisible world inhabiting our planet, they would find a reality alive with good against evil, a place where the prize is the souls of men and where legions war for control of its cities and people. The end game for the darkest of these powers—together with their human counterparts—is to stand in the place of God, incarnated and ruling the nations with an iron fist.

I believe this is what we see unfolding now, and it ultimately will require human sacrifice to satisfy the personal and political ambitions of such spirits and men.

How do I know this?

I suspect examples of such have been ongoing for at least the past 50 years of American history and intentionally elevated in recent years as we near the time of the end. I will share some of these with you, and why such persons in particular were targeted.
