During Reyes’ trial, the prosecution read letters to the court that Reyes wrote while imprisoned in which he said the Devil was watching him and directing him to act during the brutal murder.
“He was standing there, watching me and Victor,” the teen wrote in a letter read to jurors in that case. “It’s all good. It’s what the Devil asked for.”
The murder occurred after the three teens left a party allegedly to have consensual sex in the abandoned apartment complex. Cervantes’ blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit for an adult and the teens at the party were known to be drinking, smoking marijuana and taking the prescription drug Xanax.
At the apartment, Cervantes was then strangled with the belt, bludgeoned on the head and face with the porcelain lid from a toilet tank and stabbed with a small screwdriver. Her eyes were gouged out with the plastic rods from window blinds.
“Her eyes had been gouged out, while she was still alive,” Cooper said. “She was raped. She had an upside down cross carved into her stomach.”
This is what the people did in Elijah’s day:
25 Then Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “There are many of you, so you go first. Choose a bull and prepare it. Pray to your god, but don’t start the fire.”
26 So they took the bull that was given to them and prepared it. They prayed to Baal from morning until noon, shouting “Baal, answer us!” But there was no sound, and no one answered. They danced around the altar they had built.
27 At noon Elijah began to make fun of them. “Pray louder!” he said. “If Baal really is a god, maybe he is thinking, or busy, or traveling! Maybe he is sleeping so you will have to wake him!” 28 The prophets prayed louder, cutting themselves with swords and spears until their blood flowed, which was the way they worshiped. 29 The afternoon passed, and the prophets continued to act like this until it was time for the evening sacrifice. But no voice was heard; Baal did not answer, and no one paid attention (1 Kings 18:25-29).
Shedding blood was/is the way Satan is worshipped. You may have heard of the illuminati and the conspiracy dudes speak on blood sacrifices by the elite and they are correct in this. Solomon said, there is nothing new under the sun. The evil people of the days before Christ are the same evil people of today. Save yourself from them by running into the arms of Jesus.
Jesus died so that you would not have to sacrifice bull, goats, birds, and certainly not humans. He became the sacrificially lamb. Believe and trust in him. Be saved. Sinners will be judged and will not escape Gods wrath when it descends upon them swiftly.
Let’s make sure we are in the faith, by being faithful.
