Terrorist Attack on the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001

The Master-Terrorist!
By Steven Lambert, ThD

2nd Plane Attack on the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001
"And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. And the dragon and his angels waged war, and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. ...Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he was only a short time." [Rev. 12:7-9,12]

The pictures above of the "9-1-1" terrorist attack on the World Trade Center accompanied my article, America Under Attack, that I wrote the day after the attack and published to this website.

The large scale backlash by viewers against the various TV news agencies' repeated showing of video and still-photographs of the actual attack demonstrated American aversion to and unfamiliarity with such catastrophic events. Understandably, America was traumatized...for a short time, to the point of paralysis...by the dastardly, demonic atrocity that played out right before our eyes on our television screens in our living rooms. The news coverage broadcast into our homes, the massive loss of life, the heinousness of it, made the attack real and personal to us all. In short order, Americans knew the motive of these barbarous acts was not the mere destruction of American buildings, or even the ruthless murder of thousands of Americans so unfortunate as to be inside those buildings. Rather, this was an assault on the American soul, the American heart, American society. These vile cowards targeted the three most prominent icons of freedom and the American way of life — the WTC, the financial epicenter of not only America but the world; the Pentagon, the military epicenter of the most powerful nation on the earth; and, either the Congressional Capitol Building or the White House in Washington, DC, the political epicenter of America and, by extension, the free world.

It doesn't take much understanding or cogitation to know that these senseless and brutal acts of primal evil were, to invoke one of the latest "buzz words" of American society — "hate-crimes" — hate-crimes of the highest order! That is the stark message the attack on the WTC photo graphically conveys — hate-filled hostility of a magnitude that wholly eludes the grasp of the sane human mind.

In the flood of investigative information instantly inundating TV screens around the globe, the entire world was informed almost immediately of four primary facts about these unspeakably heinous acts of massive mayhem and devastation: 1) that these three incidences were indeed and unquestionably acts of terrorism; 2) that they were concerted, coordinated, and preplanned; 3) that the perpetrators were eleven Muslim extremists, who had been living and even training for their assignment in the US; 4) that they were confirmed compatriots of Osama bin-Ladin, the known maniacal master-mind behind a plethora of prominent international terrorist plots transpiring over several decades. As our collective shock subsided, it became clear that main motivation behind these evil events was that age-old manufactory of malevolence...THE SPIRIT OF RELIGION!

Fade to black. Twelve months of mourning transpire.

Lights, camera, cue...October 2002, thirteen months later, another terrorist is on the loose, terrorizing and traumatizing America. This time it appears to be a solitary sniper, who at the time of this writing has randomly targeted thirteen totally innocent victims in the greater D.C. area. Ten are dead; two severely wounded. The pattern of macabre and misery perpetrated by this psychopathic maniac makes it obvious to authorities, and any thinking human, for that matter, that his motive must transcend mere murder. This demonized deviant has demonstrated in these thirteen brazen and calculated shootings his utter lack of basic human conscience and solicitude. Inarguably, this too is a "hate-crime" of the highest order! Whoever this madman turns out to be when he is finally caught and this horrible ordeal finally ends, as I believe it soon will, one thing you can rely on is that "religion" will be a major factor in the twisted rationale of this crazed assassin as well. Those of us who revere the written Word of God and the inward communication of the Spirit as our ultimate source of knowledge and understanding readily comprehend that nothing other than evil spirits of religion could possibly produce such an extreme intensity of hatred that a human being would be driven to deliberately, cunningly, and callously scheme and carry out the cold-blooded serial murders of innocent fellow human beings.

So, what we are facing as the common denominator of these two reigns of terror that attempt to bring the greatest nation on the earth to its knees and essentially hold it hostage is Satan's supreme device of evil — THE SPIRIT OF RELIGION! In both this case and the 9-11 Attack on America the religion through which this demon of religion was operating was ISLAM! As we know from the Bible, the Principality of Islam, referred to as the "Prince of Persia," is one of the most powerful and ferocious spirits in Satan's kingdom, so powerful and ferocious that it was able to deter and withstand the preincarnate Messiah for twenty-one days when He was sent to Daniel in response to his prayer and fasting (Dan. 10:13).

Editorial note (9:00 P.M., October 24, 2002): The above portion of this article was written between 3:00 and 5:00 PM on October 23, 2002. Before I can finish writing what I had intended to write, I am diverted by circumstances and an intense call to "prophetic prayer" by the Spirit. At around 6:00 P.M. the same evening, some sort of "movement" seems to begin to unfold in the "DC Beltway Sniper" case which ultimately ends in the 3:30 AM (10/24) arrest without incident of two individuals who authorities have now officially named as "suspects" in the Metro D.C. shootings and possibly another deadly shooting in Montgomery, AL. At the time of this writing, they have been arraigned on unrelated federal charges and will remain in custody awaiting further legal disposition. One of the individuals is John Allen Muhammad, pictured at left [Source: ATF Website].

On the backdrop of these events, and other imminent international events, I have been sensing a prompting by the Spirit to convey a series of prophetic messages to the remnant Church that Jesus is building. This message is a preamble of sorts to the next unknown number of messages that the Spirit will lead me to convey through this medium. While I cannot tell you at this writing the exact nature of the final messages, I can tell you that they will be about matters that the Spirit is telling me are absolutely vital to every believer's immediate as well as longer term future as it is shaped by impending national and international events.

I will not say much more in this message, except for the following, which I will develop further in the forthcoming messages. Satan, himself, is the master-terrorist whose undying three-fold motivation is to steal, kill, and destroy (Jn. 10:10)! It is his demonic cohorts that possess all terrorists and use them to carry out his diabolical deeds unto that three-fold central aim.

Satan is also the master-religionist. He is the inventor of all false religions, and he himself is the true object of worship of all the false religions of the world. You see, the stark reality is that the devil is the real "Wizard of Oz," who all along has been orchestrating all the evil of this world from behind the curtain that conceals the unseen spirit realm from the natural realm we operate in. In the time that is now upon us, God is wanting and calling every believer to utilize the Spirit-supplied courage of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah to peer behind the curtain and to witness for himself/herself the chief Wizard of Witchcraft, and to begin to "put on the full armor of God" as a mail of protection against the whiles of the wicked one, and to take up the spiritual "weapons of OUR warfare" and begin to utilize them offensively against the arch-enemy of God and His Creation, "the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world."
