The Spear of Destiny aka the Holy Lance, the spear that the roman centurion used to pierce Jesus in His side, is believed to hold a power to whomever possesses will have a supernatural power to rule the world. Adolf Hitler, as a traveling artist in Vienna, heard the guide at the Hofburg Palace Complex, that houses the Spear of Destiny, explain the power of the spear. Hitler became completely fascinated with it. He then spent countless hours in the Hofburg studying the occult and Eastern religions, and meditating over the spear. He learned that Constantine held the same spear when he conquered Rome in 312 AD, and that some other generals, kings and emperors had carried it as well. Those words changed Hitler's life.
Years later, when Hitler became the supreme dictator of Germany, he conquered Vienna without a shot being fired. The night the city fell, Hitler entered the Hofburg Complex, and upon removing the spear from its case, held it to his chest and was recorded to say, "I knew I held the world in my hands." He believed the spear's supernatural power, and in the same night decided to exterminate the Jews and Christians in Germany.
The unique aura in Germany gave a megalomaniac the opportunity to manipulate the most powerful nations of the world. Similarly, in America today the same aura exists, the New Age Movement, that encourages regular people who believe that there are gods and principalities whose truth is "the truth." There is an overriding misconception that we are powerful enough to rule our world. Be mindful of this subtle but arrogant and egotistical thinking that ignores the authority of God and the supremacy of Jesus Christ. We cannot do it our way. We must do it HIS way. Hitler believed that he was more powerful than God and it is the same arrogance that led him to his demise. It seems that the deeper we delve into the flesh and the world, we forget that God is incomparably more powerful than our own merits. We start thinking that we are invincible. We have to continue to be mindful of our place in this life. God is the ultimate ruler, leader, guide and finisher!
