In 2013, three radical organizers created a Black-centered political will and movement called “Black Lives Matter.” They are Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.
A little background on them is that Patrisse Cullors went to her first protest at the age of seventeen. Alicia Garza, a lesbian, is a member of Astraea which is an LBGTQ organization. The meaning of the word Astraea is “star maiden,” who, in Greek mythology, was a Greek Goddess.

I find it quite telling there are 13 guiding principles for this organization. When one considers the number 13 and its occult significance, it becomes clear this cult is into the dark arts.
Black Lives Matter is a spiritual movement, says co-founder Patrisse Cullors. Cullors has stated, when discussing the role of spirituality and prayer in the Black Lives Matter movement during a program by the Fowler Museum at UCLA, that the practice of calling out the names of victims they advocate during protests and demonstration is a way to invoke their spirits. “It is literally almost resurrecting a spirit so they can work through us to get the work that we need to get done,” said Cullors. Cullors touched on West African traditions that center on remembering ancestors.
Much of the coverage of the Black Lives Matter movement focuses only on its political and social objectives; but something that people don’t know which is in plain sight, is that Black Lives Matter is a deeply spiritual movement that is steeped in the occult. All three of the founders and many of the leaders of each 16 chapters of Black Lives Matter are devout worshipers of ancient African paganism, which is rooted in witchcraft and divination. It is similar to voodoo where they call up the dead spirits. Realistically we can call them witches, invoking anarchy and revolution with their chanting.
Chanting is an iterative speaking or singing of words or sounds, often primarily one or two pitches, called reciting tones. Chanting has been used as a spiritual practice that Africans, Hawaiians, Native Americans, Assyrians and Aboriginal cultures have used for centuries. It is not of God.
Chants consist of a great deal of repetition of musical subphrases, such as the chant they use “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.” This is to incite violence against our men in blue. Also they chant “We are ready! We coming!” over and over to rally their followers to violence.
The Bible says in Matthew 6:7:
“But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen: for they think that they shall be heard for their speaking.”
In Ephesians 5:6:
“Let no main deceiveth you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.”
Do we think this organization is of God? Emphatically no! It is time for us as Christians to put on the full armor of God.
As a side note, George Soros has given the Black Lives Matter organization $33 million dollars this year. This should tell us a lot.
