12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12 NASV)
In this verse from Ephesians, the Apostle Paul told believers that our enemy is not flesh and blood or people, but rather our real enemy is spiritual, evil spirits and demons.
Though it may be difficult at times to make that separation, it is important that we do.
With that understanding, several Christians attended SatanCon held in Boston, MA on April 28-30, 2023. Sponsored by the Satanic Temple, the event was billed as the world’s ‘largest satanic gathering,’ The Christian Post reports.
The believers, who were members of numerous Christian organizations, were there to share the love of Jesus with those who were attending the satanic convention.
In an interview with CP, Lynn MacAskill, a regional leader for Intercessors for America, said:
“Numerous Christians from several teams did minister to SatanCon attendees though, with some great stories, so seeds were definitely sown. God really did move as we were able to be in the venue. Everyone was peaceful and polite, and we felt God gave us specific prayer assignments, especially on Sunday, that were powerful.”
MacAskill added that in their interactions with attendees, it was obvious that many had experienced rejection and hurt in previous interactions with the church.
There were also unconfirmed reports that some of SatanCon’s attendees may even have accepted Christ.

Satanists made headlines for tearing up a Bible and other antics at their “SatanCon 2023” event in Boston, Massachusetts, over the weekend, but popular worship leader and author Sean Feucht said something far more inspirational unfolded around the event: souls were saved.
Feucht told CBN’s Faithwire there Is an “amazing community of ministries and a network of churches” and other leaders who coordinate evangelistic outreaches in the area.
“I know this, because every year, for many years in a row, we would bring teams to the largest gathering of witches that happens in Salem … called ‘Haunted Happenings,'” he said. “And so we always bring worship teams in, and we bring evangelists in, and we see God do amazing things.”
Feucht said these same groups came together to mobilize an effort around “SatanCon 2023,” with 250 evangelists hitting the streets in eight different sections around the gathering.
“They prayed for hundreds of people,” Feucht said. “They were ministering and worshiping and … almost a hundred people gave their life to Jesus, confessed Him his Lord. It’s just so powerful and amazing.”
Watch him explain the incredible story.
