“Someone reminded me this morning that we are in a spiritual battle like we have never before seen. As Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Satan is ramping up his control and fight, for he knows his time is short. One way he does this is by spreading Hatred. Hatred for everyone and everything! We must put on the full armor of God as Paul tells us in the later verses of Ephesians chapter 6. I also saw a title the other day, didn’t read the article so I can’t give credit but it said “Pray Satan back to Hell”, this is pretty close to our command, we are to pray non stop against this evil. That is even in the prayer our Lord gave us to pray. It ends with “lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” Some translations just say deliver us from evil, but this is so relevant in our daily lives. This is often a prayer that gets left behind. But we need to pray that prayer daily, if not minute by minute. And remember “He who is in us is stronger than he who is in the world.” If we don’t try to stop this HATRED Satan will win! I’ll be posting more on how Satan controls us. But for now, join me in prayer to try to stop the ties that Satan is gaining on the world. God Bless and Keep you.
(TheBlaze/AP) — A woman sought in the death of a man who was shoved in front of a subway train was picked up by police Saturday, after a passer-by noticed her on the street and called authorities.
31-year-old Erica Menendez was being questioned and has been charged with murder as a hate crime, according to prosecutors. She could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted.
46-year-old Sunando Sen, who was from India, ran a printing shop and was living in Queens before the fatal encounter. He died after a woman muttering to herself suddenly lunged forward and pushed him off an elevated platform and onto the tracks of the No. 7 train, which connects Manhattan and Queens.

It was unclear whether the woman had any prior connection to Sen. Witnesses told police the two hadn’t interacted on the platform as they waited for the train.
However, the New York Times has a number of other details:
A law enforcement official said that Ms. Menendez had “told the cops it was an act against Muslims,” and cited the Sept. 11 attacks. The victim,Sunando Sen, was born in India and, according to a roommate, was raised Hindu. [Emphasis added]
Queens DA Richard Brown related Menendez’s shocking explanation:
“I pushed a Muslim off the train tracks because I hate Hindus and Muslims ever since 2001 when they put down the Twin Towers I’ve been beating them up.”
The woman fled after the attack, but police released security camera video showing her running from the station. Investigators had been following up on tips from people who had seen the security video and were checking homeless shelters and psychiatric units in an attempt to identify her.
The attack was the second time this month that a man was pushed to his death in a city subway station. A homeless man was arrested in early December and accused of shoving a man in front of a train in Times Square.
But NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg urged New Yorkers not to put too much weight on the frightening events.
“It’s a very tragic case, but what we want to focus on today is the overall safety in New York,” Bloomberg told reporters Friday.
