THE HOLY BIBLE - King James Version - БИБЛИЯ в Синодальном переводе

Under Attack!

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you

----------- THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE HEBREWS -----------------
== Chapter 2, Verse 18 ==
14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood,  he also 
   himself  likewise  took  part  of  the  same; that through death he might 
   destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
15 And  deliver  them  who  through  fear  of death  were all their lifetime
   subject to bondage.
16 For verily  he  took  not on  [him the nature  of] angels; but he took on 
   [him] the seed of Abraham.
17 Wherefore in  all  things  it  behoved  him to  be  made  like unto [his]
   brethren, that he might be a  merciful and faithful high priest in things
   [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour
   them that are tempted.

Jesus is our Savour!

Our savour Jesus Christ overcame the devil and has given us the whole armour of God so we may fight against evil. With the name of Jesus Christ each of us christians may rebuke Satan, who is messing up our lives and attacking everything, precious to us.

By alerting others about devil attacks you support your brothers and sisters in Christ - together it is easier for us to win, knowing that we are not alone, who has been tempted and attacked by Satan. The general attack overview on this page will warn you and remind you of devil's craftiness and that he is inventor of evil things. Your personal page contents the history of your resistance to devil and may give you a hint about his next dirty trick.

In THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE PHILIPPIANS (2:9-11) the apostle tells us about our weapon - the name of our Savour:
"9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth;
11 And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

Only with His name it is possible for us to cast out devil. As it is said in THE GENERAL EPISTLE OF JAMES (4:5-7):
"5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
"

Please do pray for your brothers and sisters, for everyone tempted of Satan and resisting the devil. The apostle James has written to us in THE GENERAL EPISTLE OF JAMES (5:16):
"Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."

Stablish our faith.

We hope that this site may help us to come together and to cast out devil. Let us stablish our faith in heavenly Father, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit - that is our salvation and our safe haven from devil's tricks. Let's recall what Paul has said to us in THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE EPHESIANS (6:13-18):
"13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
"

Pray to the LORD, so He blesses you and your ways! Remember, that only a good conscience, true and pure faith, coming from your heart and the name of Jesus Christ can protect you from the evil and devil's work.

Strip the deceits of the devil.

Start your day praying. Early in the morning your soul seeks the God and His word. An as you pray, the deceits of the devil will come obvious to you. And only knowing about those, you can resist them.

Via this site you can let people know about recent attack, which may possibly help other christians, warning them about potential danger.

On the main page of our site you may find the total information about the attacks - look closely, do you see the familiarities? May be, one of those attacks is going against you right now? Pray the LORD! For yourself, for your church, for your brothers and sisters, your relatives and friends, for all visitors of our site. Together, armed with the name of Jesus Christ, we can resist any attack and defeat the devil!

The history of this project.

It was my own experience which dictated me the idea of this site. While working on my project "The Bible for command line people" I have noticed that new attacks were happening almost every day. As I was getting closer to the successfull go-live date, Satan was attacking me more and more. The attacks were clearly visible to me and I understood that my christian project was annoying the devil much.

The attacks were so numerous, that I had to write them down to remember and to analyze my mistakes and weaknesses later. The attacks varied by their nature and origin. For example, just before I finished my project and when development has been completed, I have simultaneously lost internal hardrives on both computers and the source code has been accidentally deleted from my cloud storage. Those of you, who has been studiyng the probabilty theory, can calculate the chances of such events happening at the same time. In accordance with modern science, this was simply impossible.

Nevertheless, the project was not hurt. How was it possible? The answer is simple - I started praying immediately and prohibit the devil to mess up my project. And Satan has backed off. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you!

I am sure that some of my readers are smiling sceptically right now and my story sounds extremely childish to them. For those of you, my beloved readers, I would like to cite THE FIRST EPISTLE GENERAL OF PETER (2:1-3):
"1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord [is] gracious.
"

We can also read about this in THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SAINT MATTHEW (18:1-6):
"1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and [that] he were drowned in the depth of the sea."

I encourage my readers with wondering and critical minds to put aside their knowledge and scientific believes, approaching the word of God with purity and open heart, exactly as little children do.

Let's get back to the history of this website. All those events shown me clearly how important it was to know my own weaknesses - the devil seek his victory right there. And that was how the concept of this website was born - the place, where christians can warn each other of attacks and share their battle experience. How carefully and creatively devil masquerades its evil tricks! How hard it is to recognize them sometimes. I hope that my site can help you to uncover the devil's work and save you from falling into Satan's traps.

How does this site work?

It is very simple to operate this website.

  • New participant sends me an email and asks to register the new username. Please write me on email "denis" at the domain "read-and-think.org". Your email acts as your login. This is the only information, provided by you. We do not require nor keep any other personal data about you. Obviously, you have to realize that the IP address of your computer (or your provider or proxy server) will be recorded and kept in the logs of our webserver. However, this also happens every time you visit any other resource on the Internet.
  • In response to your email you will recieve the password. It is required only to access your personal page and for sending attack's data. The password will be send to you in email unencrypted, as open text - we do not keep any information about our users and do not take efforts to counceal it.
  • When visiting the website, you always will lend onto the page with general information. At the top of the page you will see the link "Under Attack!". Following that link, you can get onto the attack data entry page. From that form you can move on your personal page.
  • On the attack data entry page you can record the inforamtion about recent attack, selecting from one of the categories.
  • From the data entry form you will be transferred to your personal page, displaying your attack records and their analysis.
  • Getting back to the main page, you again can see the overall information about all attacks on all registered users.
  • For your personal page login we use digest authentication. This means that your password is transferred over the Internet and kept on our server encrypted. At the same time, the rest of the data (your email address, attack records etc.) are transferred as open text. Keep that in mind and use separate mailbox to keep your privacy.

    The design of this website.

    Answering the question about (missing) design of this website, I would like to remind you what is said in THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE EPHESIANS (2:17-18):
    "17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
    18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
    "

    You are seeing simple text in single column with minimal styles and completely without the tables for one reason - I remember that some of my users can not see and use screen readers. For this same reason I use the authentication dialog, embedded into webbrowsers and simplified elements of data entry form.

    The text separation with headings was specifically designed to simplify the navigation on the very long page - please use your screen reader "Headings list" and "Links list" dialogs.

    The reasearch of US National Cancer Institute, the recommendations of US Rehabilitation Act and W3C demonstrate that this webpage design provides maximum convenience for screen readers users.

    The website has been tested with:

  • JAWS v11;
  • Window-Eyes 7;
  • Orca 2.32;
  • Fangs.
  • If you are using the screen reader right now - please, let me know how I can improve my website to make your experience more pleasant and convenient.

  • The chart below represents the same data in a graphical form. Green color marks our wins over Satan, red color - our losses. The square of segments is proportional to total number of attacks in single category. The intensity of red color increases from the segments with minimum attacks to the segments with their maximum.

    Attacks pie chart.

    We would love to see only green color on this chart - let us put our efforts together and defeat devil by overwhelming force of our faith, deflecting Satan's burning arrows with great and reliable shield - the name of Our LORD Jesus Christ!

    Godspeed!


    The summary of all attacks on all registered users

    Each column of the histogram shows the number of attacks by year, month or day. The total height of each column equals to overall number of attacks for the given period of time. The victories always have green color and losses are always marked with red. The left quarter of each column shows overall proportion between victories and defeats over the period of time, represented by the column. The right quarter reflects the proportion of wins to losses for each type of attack. The horizontal red lines separate the segments in the central area, with heights, proportional to the total number of attack of one type.

    Under the plot area you can see the "tags cloud" - each attack name is written with the font size, proportional to that attack's total number over all bars. The horizontal ruler under each attack's tag shows the ratio between wins and losses for that particular attack type.
