If there is one person trying to sound the alarm on the upside-down world we live in and the spiritual forces trying to orchestrate the devil's kingdom on earth, it is Lance Wallnau.
With American culture swirling down the sewer system of morality, Wallnau shined light on two specific news stories that the mainstream media is doing everything they can to bury so that people remain in the dark to the spiritual warfare taking place in society.
The Vatican's 'Woke Pope'
One might think that a Catholic bishop taking part in the protests of the Los Angeles Dodgers honoring the anti-Catholic hate group, the Sister of Perpetual Indulgence, would earn praise from the Vatican.
Instead, Pope Francis has opened an investigation into the bishop for his participation in the protest.
The Vatican has initiated a formal investigation into the east Texas diocese led by Bishop Joseph Strickland, a controversial figure who has accused Pope Francis of undermining the Catholic faith.
Elizabeth Slaten, the communications director for the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, confirmed the investigation, known as an apostolic visitation, took place over several days recently. However, she did not provide further details regarding who conducted the visitation or its purpose.
According to Mercy Sister Sharon Euart, a canon lawyer and executive director of the Resource Center for Religious Institutes, an apostolic visitation is typically initiated by the Vatican to assess the ability of someone in a leadership position, such as a bishop, to govern effectively.
Bishop Strickland, appointed by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012, has gained a reputation as an outspoken figure who openly challenges Pope Francis' leadership and criticizes fellow bishops.
Strickland's public criticism of Pope Francis has not gone unnoticed. In a tweet on May 12, he questioned the pope's fidelity to the Catholic faith and distanced himself from a far-right Catholic podcaster who doubted Francis' legitimacy.
Strickland has also used his social media platform, with nearly 124,000 followers on Twitter, to spread anti-vaccine messages during the COVID pandemic and to undermine other bishops by supporting priests disciplined by those prelates.
Additionally, Strickland has taken strong partisan political positions, describing President Joe Biden, a Catholic who supports abortion rights, as an "evil president."
In 2020, he endorsed a controversial video by Fr. James Altman that claimed Catholics could not vote for Democrats in political elections.
Strickland later participated in a rally organized by supporters of former President Donald Trump, who sought to overturn Biden's election victory.
The visitation initiated by the Vatican raise's questions about the future of Bishop Strickland's leadership in the diocese.
While the purpose and outcome of the investigation remain undisclosed, the Vatican's involvement suggests a serious examination of Strickland's ability to govern effectively and maintain unity within the Catholic community.
Biden Administration Caught with 'White House Coke'
Officials have confirmed that a white powdery substance found in the West Wing of the White House recently was cocaine.
This confirmation comes after initial tests indicated the substance was illicit drugs, and additional testing was conducted.
The U.S. Secret Service spokesperson confirmed the findings. Speculation arose that the cocaine could have belonged to Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden's son, who has struggled with cocaine and crack addiction in the past and has been seen at the White House recently.
The Secret Service spokesperson, Anthony Guglielmi, stated that further evaluation and an investigation into how the cocaine entered the White House are still pending.
The substance was discovered in a small plastic baggie inside a cubby used by staff and guests, as informed by a source familiar with the investigation. The White House was temporarily evacuated after the discovery. Initially, officials reported that the cocaine was found in the library on the ground floor, but later sources clarified that it was in the West Wing holding area.
The cubby is commonly used by employees and visitors to store phones and personal items.

These two events are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the spiritual forces trying to manipulate the world today. Thankfully, Jesus has given His followers authority over the enemy as written in Luke 10:19: "Look, I give you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy. And nothing shall by any means hurt you."
The Word of God implores believers to seek and gain wisdom through the Word of God. By doing this, they will be empowered to see through the distractions of the enemy and overcome the tricks of the devil as taught in Ephesians 5:15-17: "See then that you walk carefully, not as fools, but as wise men, making the most of the time because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is."
