UNGODLY FALSE BELIEFS
The lure of ungodly superstitious beliefs or the occult is almost always on the basis of acquiring knowledge or power. The New Age movement has returned as it has so many times before. It is NOT a sect, a religion, a single organization, a science or a philosophy. It stems from a yearning for an age of freedom from the evils afflicting the world. It is called a movement in order to indicate that it is a network of individuals and groups who share a world-view and a common desire to change the world. In the Christian world, this is known as Ungodly Superstitious Beliefs.
“See to it that no one captivate you with an empty, seductive philosophy according to human tradition, according to the elemental powers of the world and not according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8
Many in this movement are less inclined to obey external authority and they think of religion in a way that leads to the notion that the self is sacred and to an exaggerated idea of freedom and self-reliance. Faith in God is often abandoned, except perhaps as a tool for self advancement.
A society which has undergone a breakdown of faith in the Christian tradition leans on the unlimited progress of science and technology through knowledge. The New Age movement claims to be able to acquire this knowledge in an esoteric way through such methods as dream analysis or through the medium of a “spiritual master.”
For the New Age devotee, spirituality means the use of the powers of nature and of an imaginary cosmic “energy” to communicate with another world and to discover the fate of an individual, or to help to make the most of oneself.
The New Age does not believe in a God, does not believe in good or evil, has no room for judgment or blame, and holds that belief in evil is negative and causes only fear. It also fails to distinguish between God who created the universe and the universe He has created.
Examples of the titles of the New Age programs are listed below:
. Dreams: “Our Cosmic Connections,” · Focusing: Doorway to the body-life of spirit
· Reiki training
· Star in My Heart with Sophia and She is God
· Praying with Kabir
· Centering Prayer
· The Enneagram
· Dancing with the Cosmos
· Creation-Centred Spirituality
Christianity, on the other hand, is an invitation to look outwards and beyond, to the “new Advent” of the God who calls us to live in the dialogue of love.
God commands us to have nothing to do with anything that smacks of involvement with the spirit world through the use of mediums, séances, Ouija boards, horoscopes, tarot cards, channeling, etc. He considers all of these an abomination (Deuteronomy 18:9-12; Isaiah 8:19-20; Galatians 5:20; Revelation 21:8), and those who involve themselves in such things invite disaster.
In the old testament, God considered the occult practices of contacting the spirit world for wisdom or guidance for the future an abomination worthy of judgment in Moses’ time. Deuteronomy 18:9 12 Sometimes one can become possessed by starting to watch some sort of occult on television.
A TRUE STORY
In Chisasabi, Quebec at James Bay, a young native boy was completely possessed. His mother and father were holding on to him with both arms.
A minister who attempted to deliver him from his tormenter (an evil spirit) had problems in deliverance. Finally, he said, in the name of Jesus, tell me your name. No answer! Then afterward at the end of the evening, the boy blurted out, “Tupac forever!”. The evil spirit in him had to obey Jesus’ command to reveal his name. The father realized that the boy wore a Tupac or 2pac belt. When the belt was taken away, deliverance was successful. The rap singer, Tupac, who died prematurely, had been using satanic lyrics. The parents destroyed all the paraphernalia, which was kept in their child’s room or which was worn.
Do you not realize that everything that goes into a person from outside cannot defile, since it enters not the heart but the stomach and passes out into the latrine?” (Thus he declared all foods clean.) But what comes out of a person, that is what defiles. From within people, from their hearts, come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly. All these evils come from within and they defile.” Mark 7:18-23
Demons are found in one’s soul – which is one’s mind, will and emotions (such as the evil spirit of depression, fear, anxiety, panic, grief, mental illness, etc.), and also less known in their bodies (such as evil spirit of cancer, arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, etc., that is to say, unclean spirits often ultimately cause these conditions, which start with undue stress, etc.).
This then is a job for spiritual deliverance “in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.” 2 Corinthians 2:11 Remain united to Jesus and you will not be possessed by the evil one. More and more people these days are possessed because they get involved in demonic practices. If you turn to the evil one, then you have lost God’s help and you are opened to be oppressed by evil spirits. He chased away many of them: He just had to say, ‘Come out of him’ and the evil one was gone. Remain in Jesus and do not take part in the Occult.
If there was ever any involvement (however innocent), in Satanic activities, witchcraft, cults or occult activities they must be renounced. Typical prayer:
“Father, I denounce any bond, or agreement I ever made with Satan and the kingdom of darkness. I know there can be no valid contract with a liar and I renounce any words, oaths or pledges made to Satan and I choose to be totally free from them. I choose to be cleansed from any ties with Satan in Jesus Name. Amen.”
The Mark of the Beast?
Google the “number of the Beast” and you will get lots of Iron Maiden references and images (for those who are confused right now, they are a metal band that head songs by the name in the 80’s). Our fascination concerning this idea is amazing. The rest of the Google results are about microchips and tattoos. You hardly hear the important point.
This is about giving up or selling out when it comes to Jesus. You see, at the time John wrote this Revelation, there were believers being killed for their faith. These martyrs were usually given a choice, renounce Jesus and live, stick with Him and die with Him. If a believer did survive, they would be an outcast of sorts and it would be difficult, if not impossible to get a job because all the trade guilds would turn their backs on them. In other words – the devil has lots of pull in the world and will make it tough for God’s people to live for Him.
Even today, there is the threat of attack. How many temptations to compromise or give up on Jesus surround us? The mark could be a tattoo or other visible branding, but the point is that it is any totally visible sign or indication that someone has given up on Jesus to save his or her skin. Notice the places on the body the mark is placed are the place that are usually exposed and visible. Get the point? That’s the deal, denying Jesus – that’s the mark and let me tell you, it will be evident to all!
Father Melvin Doucette is a retired African missionary now living in Prince Edward Island, and he received this message recently: “There are many today who are possessed by evil spirits. This has happened because they refused to follow Me and instead they have been involved in all kinds of occult practices. If you get involved in New Age or in Wicca, you can be sure in time you will be possessed by the evil one. A priest can chase the evil one away but if the person is not converted, then the evil spirit will return with seven other evil spirits worst than the first one. Then their situation will be worst than ever. You who are involved in occult practices, I call you to leave this right away and return to Me and you will be liberated.”
Never to have anything to do with Satan. Never get involved in anything Satanic such as New Age, Wicca, Reiki, Ouija board, occultism or anything else that is not of Jesus Christ.
DELIVERANCE AND EXORCISM
Exorcism is exercised in case of possession, while deliverance deals with the influences that are not full possession. There are very few cases of possession as compared to ever pervading influence of different kinds of evil spirits affecting many people.
“The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the Lord your God has not permitted you to do so. The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.” Deuteronomy 18:9-15
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth” Philippians 2:10 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me”. Luke 4:18 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
These evil spirits are legalistic and they must be delivered in the Name of Jesus Christ by their function, otherwise the specific spirit would simply say “they are not talking to me” and they will stay.
WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DELIVER EVIL INFLUENCES A faithful Christian who is sinless: otherwise the evil spirits will just laugh at one’s sins.
The person being delivered does not have to be Christian. In fact, if you are a die-hard Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist or any other religion you are in for a big surprise. You will only know by trying it: you have every thing to gain and nothing to lose.
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Luke 10:19 “The one who does what is sinful is of the devil … The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.” 1 John 3:8 In the Name of Jesus Christ, you can take authority over all evil influences and break these influences over your life. This is accomplished together with one other Christian who is of God or is very close to God.
HOW DO YOU KNOW A DELIVERANCE HAS TAKEN PLACE?There is a definite sense of peace, which envelopes over the one being delivered. You definitely know something has happened.
Then comes Deliverance!!!
You may be wrapped up in a prickly blanket of sadness, you may be depressed, stressed or anxious, but it isn’t your fault.
You can help yourself more than anyone. The evil influence on you can be defeated through Jesus, the Source of strength. “Every knee will bend before Me” Romans 14:11 That includes all evil spirits influencing you.
To my friends who are Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon or Jehovah Witness:
To our knowledge, there is no one in your religious belief that can bind and deliver demonic spirits. There is a reason for this: demonic attacks are warded off in Jesus’ Name. It requires a bible oriented Christian to do the deliverance. You still can be delivered from your attacks, but it needs that all important Christian to command all evil spirits to go to Jesus Christ who will dispose of them according to His Will and to never return .
The person praying for deliverance must be free of sin otherwise the devil will just laugh.
Prayer of Deliverance
The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of … to go to the abyss.” This is said for each individual evil spirit.
The following prayer can be done together: the person to be delivered must also pray during “OUR PART“: “Come, Holy Spirit, Come” or “Come, Lord Jesus, Come” silently.
Your Christian friend will command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss) to be soon replaced with the Love and Blessing of the Lord: Free in Jesus
The void that that takes place brings a complete sense of peace, and you will now be free in Jesus.
(In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all evil spirits influencing you now, as you read this, to be quiet and not to give you any evil thoughts. This I command in the Name of Jesus.)
If you don’t believe this, try it and see for yourself. You will definitely know in three minutes that a physical change has taken place.
The person delivered must now thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total deliverance has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it. One must soak oneself in God’s love by reading the Bible: the short gospel of Luke for beginners and later the gospels of John.
The delivered person does not want to ever go back to the ever pervading influence of evil spirits. It is very important to connect with a Bible-oriented church.
This same prayer of deliverance can be used to exhort evil influences on members of your family by name in the same manner with you as the intercessor and with your prayerful Christian. They should be made aware of your prayer as a gentle mention that you have prayed for them so they can become more sensitized to God’s Love.
This prayer of deliverance can be printed, quartered and kept in your wallet.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I am clean living!” They whisper “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.”
- Christians don’t speak of this with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they are trying to be strong because they are really weak and need strength.
- Christians don’t brag of success, but they admit that they are failing and they need God to clean up the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect. Their flaws are far too visible but God believes they are worth it.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain and they have their share of headaches but they call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than thou. They are also simple sinners who receive God’s Unbelievable Grace.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will have begun. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to this Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading the Gospel according to Luke and then John: It is all about love and you will love it. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. Soaking yourself in the love of God defends you from attacks of the enemy.
