Part 1: Rescued from a sneak attack. We first look at why there is so much evil in today’s world. Is the devil real? Many believe that evil is created by people making bad choices, and this leaves us vulnerable to being tricked by demons. Your host Terry Modica shares her story of how she was tricked into turning away from Christ by getting involved with the demons of the occult because she didn’t believe they existed.
Part 2: Exposé of the plans of Satan worshipers. Terry continues exposing why there is so much evil in today’s world and how it has gotten into the Church. She tells the story of meeting a Satanist high priest who converted to Christ and what she learned from him about the agenda and methods of satanic infiltration.
Part 3: Hidden Saints who defeat Satan. When we are not aware of what the Holy Spirit wants to do through us, Satan keeps other people from finding the kingdom of God. Pope Francis said, “There are terrible, terrible, terrible things in the world, and this is the devil’s work against God. But there are holy things, saintly things, great things that are the work of God. There are hidden saints.” When you were baptized, you became a saint. When we become who we truly are in Christ, we can defeat the devil easily. The Holy Spirit makes this possible. This episode includes prayers of renouncing what the devil has done in your life, freeing you to do what God created you to do.
Part 4: The devil’s snares in the Church. Pope Francis points out that “snares are one of the strategies of the devil.” What is a snare? How do good people unwittingly walk into snares and get trapped? Terry Modica shares the story of how the priest who was the first chaplain of Good News Ministries got ensnared by alcoholism and why this eventually destroyed his ministry. She then explains how snares are why the Church is suffering from bishops who have been perpetuating abuses, and why the Church in Germany is pulling away from the authority of the Vatican. Finally, she explains the most important help that God provides for escaping snares.
Part 5: Dealing with the devil in the Church. What is the devil doing now in the Church? And what can we do about it? In this episode, Terry Modica talks about the heresies and divisiveness of the German bishops and the Amazon Synod. We are at a crucial turning point in the Catholic Church. We each can make a difference! All the faithful are being called by the Holy Spirit to rebuke the devil and push him out of the Church. This episode explains how to do it.
Part 6: Make the devil flee from you. What are the tools for defeating demons that Jesus has placed in our hands? With the humble power of prayer, we can do much. The Sacraments give us supernatural graces that conquer the devil. Here’s how to free yourself from the ways the devil has been interfering in your life. Dare to be on the side of Christ so strongly that the devil flees from you.
