The TRUTH About Modern Day “Secular Therapy”, ETC.

Modern day “secular therapy” has us go to “psychiatrists” and “psychologists”. Many secular “experts” tell us that our “depression” and “anxiety” and “behavioral disorders” (especially in young children and teens) are caused by a “chemical imbalance of the brain” and that “medication” is the ONLY means by which to be “healed”. But is that RIGHT? Is it BIBLICALLY sound and ACCURATE? Or is it just one of MANY of the Devil’s LIES meant to once again HIDE US FROM THE COMPLETE 100% TRUTH OF ALMIGHTY GOD/JESUS? Let us examine.

When going to Amazon one day to search for some Christian end times resources, the Lord Jesus IMMEDIATELY compelled me to suddenly look at the actual user reviews for an ungodly book called: “The Satanic Bible”. And I said outloud in shock: “JESUS, ARE YOU FOR REAL ON THAT? YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS!”

But instead, the sad but calm/firm answer I got back from him was THIS: “Look at what they SAY…..the people who UPHOLD that ungodly book, that is…..it will help give you a really good insight into HOW the enemy deceives and the EXACT POINTS in people’s lives WHERE he’s deceiving them AT. You might just be surprised!”

And so, after spending some time in prayer and with much trepidation, I headed on over to see the user reviews! And MAN, WAS MY SOUL **GRIEVED** AND SADDENED, as I poured over the user reviews to try to figure out just WHAT these poor, deceived folks found so “enticing” about “Satan/Satanism”. I felt like my soul was about to vomit!

Nevertheless, ONE particular user review STOOD OUT AT ME! In fact, it was ONE sentence in particular IN that review that really JUMPED RIGHT OUT AT ME!

………”IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PSYCHOLOGY, YOU WILL BE SURPRISED, HOW CLOSE MANY ASPECTS OF THIS BOOK ARE TO WHAT THERAPISTS TEACH THEIR CLIENTS TO **IMPROVE THEIR LIVES!**…….”

Now, WOW…..that quote is QUITE TELLING, isn’t it, folks? But yet, it actually makes sense. Modern day “secular therapy” and all the colleges and universities (UNLESS it’s born-again CHRISTIAN therapists/psychiatrists) are all teaching a thing called “self-actualization”.

Basically, that means the promotion of SELF (and “selfies”, etc.) Or in other popular lingo, it means “Do You”, “be the person YOU want to be”, “follow YOUR dreams/desires”, etc., REGARDLESS of what Jesus or any “entity” thinks! In other words, put YOUR own needs above the needs of any and all others (especially Jesus!)

All that, ofcourse, is COMPLETELY CONTRARY to the words of Jesus Christ himself who in Luke 9:23 said: “…..If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me“. Now…….what does it mean to “take up one’s cross?”, some of you might be wondering. “Because certainly we can’t all be like Jesus, correct?”

Well, first of all, think of what all Jesus had to endure ON the cross (i.e. excruciating PAIN, sorrow, mocking, ridicule, laughter, being spat on, having a crown of thorns placed on his head, being stabbed in his side with a spear, his hands and feet NAILED to the cross, etc.) In other words, he had to suffer excruciating pain for OUR benefit (i.e. becoming the ATONEMENT for all of the sins of mankind). Therefore……what does it mean when WE “bear our cross” for Jesus? It means bearing our personal “CROSSES OF AFFLICTION” FOR the sake of Jesus and his gospel!

And no two people’s “crosses of affliction” are alike! Now…..is this a LITERAL cross we must nail ourselves to everyday? No, ofcourse not! It is a spiritual, emotional, physical, and psychological cross that we must metaphorically pick up and carry with us each and every single day of our lives! So for example, ONE person’s “daily cross” may be struggles with spiritual persecution for being a Christian, while ANOTHER person’s “daily cross” might be a struggle with a perpetual sin that they’re attempting to overcome (i.e. alcoholism, same sex attraction, etc.)

And EACH and every single day, each person must FIGHT that “cross” and OVERCOME that “cross of affliction”, if that makes any sense? So in other words, the person that suffers the “cross of spiritual persecution” must ENDURE that spiritual persecution and KEEP THE FAITH, each and every single day, NO MATTER WHAT! And the person struggling with the “cross of affliction” of alcoholism/same-sex attraction/etc. must FIGHT the temptations OF that “sin” (i.e. that “cross of affliction”) each and every single day of their lives! That’s what Jesus means when he says to “….take up his cross daily, and follow me” [reference: Luke 9:23]

Therefore, “self-actualization” and/or worship of SELF does absolutely NOTHING for Jesus or his gospel! In fact, those two ungodly practices actually cause us to DENY our “daily cross of affliction” and to DENY Jesus and his gospel! So think about that for a bit! Think about that the next time you step inside a SECULAR “therapist’s” office! But then again, in today’s fallen world, even a so-called CHRISTIAN therapist might accidentally (or sometimes purposely) lead you down the wrong path if you’re not careful! ESPECIALLY if they are not truly BORN AGAIN! (So just make sure that any so-called “Christian” therapist actually believes and follows the bible and isn’t just one of those *liberal/happy-go-lucky/lukewarm Christian* types).

Now….why does Jesus want us to DENY OURSELVES for him in this Earthly life? Think about what Jesus HIMSELF denied for US! When He came to the Earth as a newborn infant, he DENIED himself his divinity and RICHES! (True, he had the “rich gifts” from the 3 wise men…….but he was born into a POOR FAMILY!) He wasn’t even born in a proper inn but in a barn-type stable! Now think about that……..truly think about that for a minute! His whole entire earthly life, he was POOR!

For the 3 some years of his ministry on the Earth, he was a NOMAD! And though he performed miracles, etc., he STILL denied himself of his FULL divinity! And when he was tried and persecuted and nailed to the cross, he CONTINUED to deny himself his full divinity!

In fact, he denied himself EVERYTHING for US! He sacrificed HIMSELF completely for the forgiveness of OUR sins! He then gained victory over death, hell and the grave! He later ascended back up to heaven to be on the right hand side of God the Heavenly Father! THE UNIVERSE HAS KNOWN NO GREATER LOVE THAN THE LOVE THAT JESUS HAD **FOR MANKIND** WHEN HE SACRIFICED HIMSELF ON THE CROSS FOR FORGIVENESS OF MANKIND’S SINS!!! (NOTE: PLEASE READ JOHN 3:16).

Therefore, Jesus denied himself for US! Which is why WE NOW, must deny ourselves, in turn, for HIM and His everlasting gospel! Because we are to be likened onto HIM! For mankind was made in his image! (It says that in Genesis 1:27!) So in other words, we are to try to live our lives as much like Christ as possible. We should strive to serve others before ourselves. We should be slow to anger, quick to forgive, patient, loving, kind. We should honor and follow the 10 commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, etc.

Now, we’re all human, and we’re all going to fall short of the mark of righteousness sometimes. This is recorded in Romans 3:23 which states: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”.

So in other words, nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes from time to time. However, that shouldn’t give us a free license to sin! Some of today’s Christian therapists might mean well on the surface. But if they’re not born again or if they’re lukewarm or a “leftist liberal” that supports such things such as LGBT and abortion, it’s time for you to seek a NEW Christian therapist!

But then again, it begs of question: Why do we humans keep going to other people and the internet to try to solve our problems when we should instead be going to JESUS HIMSELF to solve all our problems? Isn’t JESUS HIMSELF the ULTIMATE HEALER? And doesn’t JESUS HIMSELF have all the answers to the questions or problems that we seek solutions for? Didn’t JESUS HIMSELF create the universe and the heavens? So how then is he going to scratch his head in confusion over how to help us deal with OUR problems? Answer: he won’t! Because doesn’t it stand to reason that if he created the universe and the heavens, that he certainly knows what he’s doing in OUR everyday lives (rather we know it or realize it or not?)

Another aspect I forgot to mention is “demonic influences” (i.e. Ephesians 6:12). They are MUCH more powerful and active than we think! Even just ONE alcoholic drink, ONE ungodly movie, ONE ungodly music song, ONE un-prescribed painkiller, ONE ungodly book (i.e. Harry Potter), ONE ungodly object in our homes such as Ouija board/tarot cards/carved idol could be enough to invite SEVERAL DEMONS into our hearts, homes, minds and SOULS!

So it’s really NO WONDER the majority of Americans today (as well as several people around the world) feel depressed, anxious, restless, unfulfilled, never happy, etc. It’s because of all the “demonic influences” that people have let into their lives! That’s the REAL reason for depression, anxiety, mood disorders, etc.! BUT SECULAR THERAPISTS WILL NEVER TELL YOU THAT! They’ll lie to you (many being “spiritually lost” themselves) and will say it’s because of a “chemical imbalance in the brain”. Okay, question, who or what CAUSED that so-called “chemical imbalance” in the FIRST PLACE? Any clues? Any guesses? Because it MOST CERTAINLY wasn’t Jesus or his RIGHTEOUS angels that did that!

And the fact that SATAN/DEMONS are responsible for ALL cases of restlessness/anxiety/SEVERE DEPRESSION……it almost sounds somewhat “odd”, “crazy” or “sensational” on the surface, doesn’t it? But yet, the demonic realm is REAL! Many famous movie stars have come out and ADMITTED they sold their soul to Satan and/or agreed to be *inhabited by demons* for money, fortune and fame! And they’re NOT kidding, folks! DEMONS ARE REAL! SATAN IS REAL! Don’t you DARE bet your soul otherwise!

================

Ofcourse, don’t get me started on how the bible constantly uses the words “he”, “him” and “his”. Because in nearly all of those cases, Jesus means females as well. If the bible translators were gonna be very technical about it, they could’ve written “his/hers”.

However, in light of today’s modern day “gender confusion” among the extreme LEFT here in America, I believe Jesus PURPOSELY had them translate the words AS “he”, “him” and “his” in order to avoid any future confusion that might’ve been caused with the modern day “transgender movement”. Because we have to remember that Jesus is an all-powerful, all-knowing God. He knew way ahead of time about the “transgender madness” that would soon take place in this fallen world!

I believe ANOTHER reason the bible tends towards male adjectives is because A) Jesus himself is MALE and all the prophets of Old (save for Anna and Deborah) were MALE! In other words, the message between the lines (all throughout the scriptures) is that modern day men (and women) need to be likened onto the prophets of God that (for the most part) did NOT rebel against God, in other words.

In other words, the whole of scripture is warning us NOT to commit the same ultimate sin that Adam and Eve did. Because IF we do {and in OUR modern day times, taking the Mark of the Beast is what I literally see as partaking of the modern-day version of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil}, the consequence won’t just be physical death but ETERNAL DEATH/CONDEMNATION as well. The reason that Adam & Eve “got off so easy” on their MAJOR TRANSGRESSION is because they were the VERY FIRST humans. They “almost” didn’t know any better.

But yet, MODERN DAY humans? We’ve had nearly 7,000? + years or more of human history and the scriptures and scriptural examples, not to mention the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross! Therefore, while Adam & Eve were forgiven for their “original sin” of partaking of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil, WE (i.e. modern day humans) will be WITHOUT EXCUSE if WE partake of OUR modern-day version of “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (i.e. The Mark of the Beast).

But going back to the modern day field of “psychiatry”. It “diagnosis” things and then “prescribes medication”. And the pharmaceutical industry is a HUGE part of it! They’re CONSTANTLY developing new “drugs” for things such as “heartburn”, “indigestion”, “depression”, “anxiety”, etc. They FUND studies that attempt to show the so-called “effectiveness” of their “new drugs”. And sadly, those “studies” seem to have very little oversight by the FDA, from what I’ve noticed.

So when you got this multi-BILLION dollar INDUSTRY that makes its money off of people being “sick” and/or “full of depression/anxiety”, you begin to understand how and why all these “meds” are over-prescribed and under-studied! Just follow the $$$$ signs! They don’t make their money by people getting better, folks! They make their money off of people being “sick” and “unhealthy!” Think about it, now! I really hate to say that but it’s the truth! Big Pharma is ONLY out to make money! And “secular therapists” (for the most part anyways, as a whole) are too, for that matter! It’s only the TRULY born-again Christian therapists who aren’t out to make money but to SAVE SOULS!

One word that keeps coming back to me over and over again is the word “pharmakeia”. Something about the word just perpetually HAUNTS MY SOUL (for some reason) and I don’t know why! But according to the following website: https://www.bibletools.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/Lexicon.show/ID/G5331/pharmakeia.htm, the word is a Greek word which means (in retrospect) “pharmacy” or “medicine”. It could also mean “sorcery” or “witchcraft”.

But again, it stands to reason! Just HOW MANY diseases, headaches and ailments (such as depression, heartburn, anxiety) are actually caused by DEMONIC SPIRITS? Probably more than we think! Jesus was able to cure people INSTANTLY! In most cases, he placed his hand on them and they were healed. Which makes perfect sense. At the mere sight of Jesus, demons TREMBLE! (“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble” – James 2:19).

But in TODAY’S WORLD, people are turning to MEDICINE (in and of itself) for all of their mental, emotional and physical ailments, INSTEAD of turning to Jesus Christ himself, whom they SHOULD be turning to! Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Today, we live in a such a “pill popping society”. “Oh, you got THIS? Take a pill” seems to be the prime societal attitude. Many people (even myself included, at times) are FORGETTING the fact that Jesus isn’t JUST Almighty God in the flesh, isn’t JUST the “atoning saviour” of ALL of mankind (those who choose to believe in and OBEY HIM, that is), but he’s also THE HEALER! For just how many times do we read about Jesus HEALING PEOPLE *INSTANTLY* in the New Testament? Answer: SEVERAL!

But again, lets us go back to the Lord’s Prayer. When the disciples were on the Mount of Olives with Jesus, they not only asked him about the signs of the end of times (i.e. the end of the age) but they also asked him about the proper way to “pray”. And Jesus’s response was THIS:

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen“. Matthew 6:6-13 {Note: Please remember that the very last lines of “For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever” were ADDED WORDS and the Lord’s DIRE WARNING to us about “adding words” in Revelation 22:18-19! That’s something we should all take VERY, VERY SERIOUSLY!!!!!)} 

Okay, now zero in on the words THY WILL BE DONE. What does that imply? It implies that WE (like Jesus) should be seeking the Heavenly Father’s will (DAILY), instead of our OWN WILL! Because when Satan rebelled against the Heavenly Father in Heaven, he wanted HIS will to be done, INSTEAD of the Heavenly Father’s will!

So that’s where you get all of this “Do YOU” and “Do What Thou Wilt” stuff. Because Satan (whose angry and knows he has but a short time – as per Revelation 12:12) wants to try to conform all of mankind to HIS ungodly image (Note: Please remember from Genesis 1:27 that we – biologically-born males and females) are made in the image of God and Satan HATES the image of God and thus, desperately wants to THWART IT!) So instead of focusing on the words in the Lord’s Prayer called “THY WILL be done”, Satan is more focused on “MY WILL be done”. Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

We’re SO concerned with what WE think, how WE feel, what WE want out of life (or even out of romantic love). Very, very few of us are concerned with what God the Heavenly Father wants or what Jesus wants! We’re ethnocentric, and egocentric! We think it’s all about US! “What should *I* buy on Amazon today? Where do *I* want to live, someday? How will such n’ such benefit ME? What about how *I* feel about such n’ such? What do *I* want out of life?”, etc. “I”, “I”, “I”, “I”, “I!” However, there’s just one problem with that. Jesus is 99.9% of the time NOT in the picture OF those “thoughts” and “plans!” Kind’ve sobering to think about, isn’t it, folks? 

Group therapy can be effective, yes. It’s always GOOD to know that we’re not the only ones going through something. However…..if Jesus Christ himself is NOT the center of that “group therapy”, then just what good will it do, in the long run? Think about it. 

However, organizations like AA and/or “12 step programs” (for the most part) have a Christian backing. Because think about it. Lets say, just for theoretical example, that the atheists were right and there was no God, etc. Well, WHAT then, would be the prime motivator for a person to stop drinking, etc.? If we were “all that there is”, purely theoretically speaking, then there would truly be no motivator to quit drinking (outside of friends and family, and even THAT would likely be “iffy”, in secular settings and with secular/nihilistic viewpoints). 

However, BECAUSE Jesus exists, there IS a powerful motivator for an alcoholic to stop drinking (outside of friends, coworkers and family). Secular group “talk therapy” would be the same way. If we were “all that there is”, people would just meet like-minded people who would then become depressed TOGETHER, instead of getting better. Therefore, it’s only *born-again* CHRISTIAN group “talk therapy” that will help a person TRULY get better. Do you see what I mean by this, folks?

Satan and “demonic spirits” are the ones causing people to drink, causing people to feel depressed and inadequate, causing people to have heartburn and anxiety, and causing people to “become addicted to opioids”.  That’s the BAD NEWS! However, the GOOD NEWS is that BECAUSE these things are caused by demonic spirits, a person is able to PRAY/REBUKE THEM AWAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS!

Though, like I said, demonic spirits need a “legal spiritual doorway” by which to enter! So again, I ask: What kind of music are you listening to? What kind of TV shows or movies are you watching? What kinds of video games are you playing? What kinds of friends or people are you keeping company with? What kinds of objects are you letting into your car, home, workplace? What kinds of “words” or “thoughts” are you MEDITATING ON? 

I just saw this video earlier today that claimed that “words are energy“. It’s well-worth the watch! And remember, we must SPEAK Christ’s words over ourselves DAILY! The words of Christ HAVE POWER

So that being said, have you felt depressed, stressed, full of anxiety over the present or future, etc? Turn to Jesus today IN PRAYER! Have the FAITH that he will HEAL YOU and then he will HEAL YOU! 

Speak OUTLOUD the following words and phrases in order to GIVE THEM POWER:

1). “Spirit of Depression, I demand you to DEPART, in the name of Jesus!”

2). “Spirit of Anxiety/Heartburn/etc., I demand you to LEAVE, in the name of Jesus!”

3). “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” – Isaiah 53:5

4). “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13

5). “And they OVERCAME HIM [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” – Revelation 12:11

6). “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” – John 10:28

7). “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” – Revelation 20:10

 

When You Feel Like Giving Up: How To Overcome

So have you ever gotten to that critical point in your spiritual walk with Jesus Christ where you “ALMOST” felt like giving up? Where you were just OVERWHELMED TO TEARS with all the stuff for Christ that you have to do in your day to day spiritual walk (note: only Jesus himself knows the particulars?) Where you just felt so HOPELESS, WEAK, POWERLESS? Where you were almost certain that if you were to die today, Jesus would likely NOT (at this point, anyways) welcome you into the eternal heavenly kingdom, someday?

Folks, we’ve ALL been there at some point or another. We’ve all gone through our “dark valleys of spiritual anxiety” from time to time. In fact, our spiritual walk with Christ hasn’t ALWAYS been easy. But folks, realize THIS: our spiritual walk with Christ wasn’t MEANT to be “easy”. For if it were “easy”, then EVERYONE would do it. But BECAUSE it’s hard and not easy, ONLY the Lord’s select few will make it through all the “trials and testings” (and later on receive ETERNAL REWARDS for doing so!)

Many Christians here in the year 2018 and on, say that they are now under a HUGE dark cloud of SPIRITUAL PERSECUTION……..spiritual persecution that’s the WORST SPIRITUAL PERSECUTION OF THEIR VERY ***LIVES!*** In other words, many Christians feel like it’s the WORST spiritual persecution that they have EVER, EVER experienced in ALL OF THEIR EXISTENCE! Basically, every temptation that they “could” be tempted with, many Christians now say they’re being tempted with.

There’s this sense of “spiritual heaviness” over many Christians these days. But I know that it IS a work of darkness brought on by Satan himself and the “demonic realm”. It is an executed attack by which the enemy (Satan) is attempting to throw poison fiery (spiritual) darts at EVERY born-again Christian (myself included) from EVERY which direction! However, I trust in Jesus as Lord & Savior! I have started to learn how to pray in the spirit and it’s VERY empowering!

Therefore, WHENEVER you start to feel hopeless, stressed, depressed, discouraged, full of anxiety/fear, etc., there’s SEVERAL things you need to do:

1). Realize that it’s a SPIRIT you’re dealing with, A DEMONIC SPIRIT and NOT so much a “feeling” or “emotion”, in and of itself.

2). Realize that you have POWER & AUTHORITY over such “unclean spirits” in the name of Jesus Christ!

3). Don’t be afraid to EXERCISE your power & authority against ALL unclean spirits! Say & loudly declare: “I am cleansed by the blood of the lamb slain from the foundation of the world. In the name of Jesus Christ, I REBUKE THEE!

4). Get rid of ALL demonic objects and/or “idols” in your home and car that might possibly be giving Satan/demons the “legal” spiritual right to “spiritually harass” you [Please Note that’s there’s a HUGE DIFFERENCE between spiritual “attack” and spiritual “harassment!”]

Spiritual harassment is defined as Spiritual PERSECUTION/TESTING. Such as, you lose your job, someone in your family dies, you get arrested for sharing the gospel, your bestfriend suddenly turns on you for no reason, etc. In other words, circumstances that are BEYOND your control! However, when you TRUST in Christ, you will have TOTAL CONTROL over the situation!

Spiritual attack, on the other hand, is an attack by Satan/demons in which you technically DO have control, at the onset. Let me explain. Whenever you WILLFULLY CHOOSE to have “idols” or “demonic objects” in your home (ouija boards, tarot cards, animal carvings/figurines, “Catholic statutes, etc.), that gives Satan/demons the “legal” spiritual right to “occupy your home/car” or wherever the demonic objects are.

And by HAVING the demonic objects in place (in your immediately vicinity, be it your car, home or workplace, etc), you are more or less GIVING Satan/demons LEGAL spiritual control of your “territory” and/or the LEGAL spiritual right to SPIRITUALLY ATTACK YOU! Because BEFORE you brought those things into your home, Satan/demons had no real power against you (the born-again Christian believer).

But AFTER you brought those cursed things into your home, you GAVE UP any initial power & authority you might’ve had over Satan and demons in the name of Jesus! That’s WHY you need to get rid of all those things! Get rid of all the demonic objects and IDOLS in your home, pray for Jesus to forgive you of having had such things in the first place and DON’T LOOK BACK! Because DEMONIC ATTACK is a REAL THING, FOLKS! In fact, I can provide SEVERAL examples:

You go into the bathroom and then your shower curtain rod falls suddenly and hits you on the back or head really, REALLY hard for NO REASON, or you see black shadows moving about your house or your radio or TV turns on all by itself or you feel something poking and prodding your feet or body at night when you’re trying to sleep or you have CONSTANT nightmares where demons are harassing you and controlling you, left, right and center, etc.etc.

Therefore, when one INITIALLY had control in the beginning (afterall, each person MAKES a choice to have said objects in their home/car/workplace to BEGIN with, do they not?), AS SOON AS they brought that demonic object into their car/home/workplace, that person GAVE OVER their control/their spiritual power and authority to the enemy (Satan/demons). Do you see where I’m going with this, folks?

Now…….that being said, what sorts of things classify as “demonic objects” and “idols”, you may ask? Let me list them:

  1. Tarot cards
  2. Ouija boards
  3. Incense
  4. Statues or carvings (doesn’t matter if they’re “Catholic” or not – a statue is a statue and a carving is a carving)
  5. Astrology materials
  6. Myths & Legends
  7. Occultic/New Age Artwork
  8. Dolls
  9. Black candles
  10. Anything that glorifies other “gods” other than Jesus Christ
  11. The Book of Mormon, the Qu’ran, The Talmud, etc.
  12. Music that doesn’t glorify Jesus Christ
  13. Movies that don’t glorify Jesus Christ
  14. Books that don’t glorify Jesus Christ
  15. Santa Claus and Easter bunny stuff
  16. Figurines
  17. Hallucinogenic drugs/drug materials
  18. Hard liquor
  19. Crystals
  20. Satanic video-games like World of Warcraft, etc.
  21. Posters of people, animals, places or things (Hint: even a “poster” of Jesus HIMSELF can be an “idol” according to the bible!)
  22. Abstract Artwork (especially with the Kundalini spiral, or “lightning” patterns, etc.)
  23. ETC.

Many Christians today, especially many Americans, let ALOT of ungodly things into their homes (ungodly movies, music, TV, video-games, etc.) and then turn around and wonder WHY the world, as well as their own emotional/psychological/spiritual well-being seems to be going to “HECK” in a hand-basket! Is it because 8 out of 10 homes are NOT keeping watch and NOT keeping “spiritual guard” over themselves, their homes and their families?

Why is it that many Christians today think they ONLY have to keep themselves on full spiritual guard while they’re at CHURCH? What about all the times when they’re NOT in church? Many Christians today report feeling depressed, disillusioned, hopeless, helpless, etc. But WHY is that, do you think? What part have WE, as born-again Christians (as a whole) played in this? Is it because we’re all (as a whole) unwittingly bringing things into our home that we shouldn’t, but yet, we’re so caught up in the things of this world (the lastest movie/TV shows/”technological gadgets”) that we’re not even SEEING spiritually clearly?

Many Christians haven’t read their bibles in a long time. And when they DO try to read it, they notice they feel extremely sleepy and can’t stay awake or something else comes up and distracts them. And many INTERNALIZE IT and blame THEMSELVES for it! But folks: it’s THE ENEMY that’s trying to make you NOT read your bibles! It’s THE ENEMY who wants YOU to feel stressed, depressed, hopeless, powerless, etc.! Just like it’s THE ENEMY who wants YOU to blame YOURSELF for HIS spiritual persecutions against you!

In fact, many Christians, if they were to investigate things further, and peel back all the spiritual layers (much like, peeling back layers of an onion), they’d discover that Satan and demons were the sole cause! They’d discover that Satan and demons were in fact themselves the original “driving force” that very first CONVINCED a person to buy that ungodly video-game or “idol” object to begin with! And then, when that object was brought into the home, Satan laughed with glee as he was then able to get a two-thronged spiritual control over the person!

Remember that last time you were about to do something really huge, something really miraculous for the Lord and Satan tried to stop you dead in your tracks or immediately distract you with something else? That wasn’t coincidence, folks! That was pure, outright, HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE!

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” – Ephesians 6:12

But now I want to get into the very HEART of tonight’s message: ALL of the spiritual persecution and/or harassment you’ve experienced BEFORE will be NOTHING like the spiritual persecution and/or harassment that will come from Revelation 13:7:

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations

So in other words, if YOU thought that the spiritual persecution and/or spiritual harassment you’ve suffered up until THIS point (8:00p.m. central standard time, USA, on 12/28/2018) was BAD, you haven’t seen NOTHING yet, folks!!!!!!!! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!! Because as “bad” as things are in the world and in society right now, things are going to get WORSE……..much, much worse! Now…..I know that’s kind’ve a buzzkill and probably not what most of you wanted to hear tonight but it’s the truth!

But lets unpack Revelation 13:7 a bit. What does the bible MEAN when it says power was “given him” to MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS? And who are the “saints”, by the way, according to the bible? The bible, in several passages (Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:2, Jude 1:3, 2 Corinthians 1:1, Ephesians 1:1, Colossians 1:26, Ephesians 2:19, etc.) declares that ALL born-again believers in Jesus are SAINTS!

Now………for the 2nd part of that passage…….What does it mean that power was “given him?” And furthermore, who’s the HIM that the bible is talking about? Answer: the HIM that they’re talking about is none other than THE ANTICHRIST and the reason that power is “given him” is because he HAS no power of his own volition! Whatever “limited power” he has is “green-lighted BORROWED POWER!” In other words, Satan’s “limited power” comes from power that he BORROWED from God the Heavenly Father! Because as we know, God the Heavenly Father is ALL POWERFUL & ALL KNOWING!

Folks, we’re getting really, really close to the fulfillment of Revelation chapter 13, I’m NOT EVEN KIDDING! We’ve got all the TECHNOLOGY in place, it’s just a question of WHEN that technology’s gonna be unleashed on all of mankind SIMULTANEOUSLY AT ONCE! And if you think you’ve ALREADY (as a born-again Christian) experienced the DIE-HARD SPIRITUAL PERSECUTION OF REVELATION 13:7, THINK AGAIN! Folks, we here in America haven’t even gotten CLOSE to the HIGH LEVELS of spiritual persecution that ALL born-again Christians in this country will soon face!

Christians in the Middle East and Asia are being rounded up, imprisoned, tortured and PUT TO DEATH for their faith in Christ! So let that be a preview to us ALL, here in America, and in Christianized Western nations! We in Westernized nations have this overall tendency to think it could NEVER, EVER happen to us………..the same horrible things that are now happening in the Middle East & Asia……….but folks, it’s ONLY a matter of time! Therefore, if you think any type of “persecution” you’re experiencing NOW is bad, JUST YOU WAIT!

Also as well: If you can’t handle what small-time persecutions you’re facing NOW, how will you EVER, EVER be able to handle all the LARGE-TIME PERSECUTIONS as the LITERAL TIME of Revelation 13:7 unfolds? It begs of question!

I KNOW it seems “scary” at the onset. Afterall, there’s always this fear of the unknown. But folks, you must NOT give up, not NOW, not EVER! Because remember: that’s just what Satan wants! Satan WANTS you to give up! Satan WANTS you to throw in the towel! Satan WANTS you to believe in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture so that when it doesn’t happen, you’ll lose faith and take The Mark of the Beast! (In fact, Matthew 24 indicates the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of a Pre-Tribulation rapture!) 

“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” – Matthew 24:13

I don’t know why but the Lord Jesus himself has just now (at this very moment) lead me to the parable of the sower! This can be found in Matthew chapter 13, verses 1-23!!!

Basically, in summary, there are 4 different types of “reactions” in one’s heart to a person’s hearing the gospel of salvation:

  • Type 1 – This is a person who hears the gospel being spoken but does NOT understand it. Therefore, because he does NOT understand it, (and my own spiritual take on this has always been that this person likely doesn’t even HAVE a desire to understand it, in their hearts, to begin with), that which they heard is quickly stolen away by the enemy, which is Satan!
  • Type 2 – This person receives the gospel with joy but has no “deep root” of faith within themselves………for when persecution strikes, they give up because they “can’t handle it” and/or “don’t understand why they’re being persecuted”
  • Type 3 – This person hears the word (the gospel), but the cares and riches of this world (i.e. materialism and greed) “choke” the word and this person becomes “unfruitful”
  • Type 4 – This person hears the word (the gospel) AND understands it (AND obeys it and obeys it WITH JOY)…….Therefore, because of this, he/she BEARS MUCH FRUIT!

Folks, what type of person are YOU? For if you’re type 1, 2, or 3, it’s time to re-evaluate and ask the Lord Jesus for some spiritual understanding while spiritual understanding may still be found! We’ve probably all, at some point, been a type 2 or type 3 or combination thereof. But it’s what we DID with that experience that matters. Did we LEARN something from it? I know I did. I’ve learned that not all the money and things in the world will satisfy for ONLY Jesus Christ and having a close spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ will satisfy!

In my much younger day, I didn’t really understand what “spiritual persecution” was all about. I used to think it was just God being “mad” at me, I didn’t know any better. And it’s quite easy to become a type 3 without even trying. For we live in a world and a society where “consumerism” is EVERYWHERE! Have we seen the latest movies or TV shows? Have we read the latest books? Have we bought the most up-to-date “technology?” The list goes on. In fact, as time goes on, it’s going to be harder and harder and harder to BE a type 4! And I really think that’s the message that Jesus wanted me to tell you all tonight!

And when you “feel” like giving up, just KNOW that it’s Satan trying to spiritually knock you down and KEEP you down and out of the count………..just KNOW that Satan’s using his demons to wreck HAVOC upon you! Are YOU going to let Satan and his demons win? Or are you going to let JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY – KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS win? 

Whenever you GET to that critical point where you’re thinking: Man! I just can’t TAKE this anymore! This is just…..TOO MUCH! I CAN’T….EVEN…..“, DON’T GIVE UP! Keep a diary or journal. WRITE ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE FEELING!! And then PRAY to Jesus Christ about WHAT you wrote! It works! MARK MY WORDS! Journaling my spiritual struggles has helped me IMMENSELY! Because it allowed me to go back, read what I wrote (from the outside looking in) and then REALIZE what the “trigger” was that LED me to feel occasionally “discouraged” in the FIRST PLACE! 

And lastly, I say a prayer for you:

“Jesus, if there’s anyone out there today who’s struggling with feelings of fear, doubt, stress, depression, anxiety, discouragement, despondency, etc., I pray that you LIFT THEM UP IN SPIRIT and ENCOURAGE THEM and GIVE THEM THE BOLD FAITH LIKE A LION, THE WISDOM OF A SERPENT AND THE GENTLENESS OF A DOVE! I pray that you ENLIGHTEN them to all the “tactics” of the enemy and give them the tools by which to OVERCOME the enemy! Amen”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

James 2:19 = Even the DEMONS *Believe & Tremble!*

James 2:19 “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble“.

The 2nd part of James 2:19 isn’t a passage that most Christians and/or church leaders talk about very often, if at all (or even do so much as think about). In fact, the VERY first time I read that passage at the tender age of 19-21, I was AWESTRUCK! The demons TREMBLE with FEAR at Jesus? F E A R? Why? I had thought at the time. Wouldn’t it make more technical sense for them to react to Jesus with ANGER, rather than FEAR?”

But let us look at two other bible passages in the bible which address this very issue!

Matthew 8:28-29 says: “And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, ‘What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?‘”

The Matthew 8:29 passage, in my further attempt at fully understanding the “demons’ fear of Jesus” back then, really got me to start questioning everything I “thought” I knew at that point about Satan and demons! Like, I KNEW that Satan and demons were ANGRY things! But little did I know, as per that passage and the 1st passage I listed, that they were FEARFUL, angry things! WHY? Because they KNOW that Jesus has the POWER to eternally judge them! 

Luke 8:28 further echos the sentiment: “When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, ‘What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me NOT!'”

When I originally read the Luke 8:28 passage back then, I sort’ve had this “human” mental imagery in my mind of a demon (using the man’s human body as a vessel) kneeling down on his knees in front of Jesus, putting both his hands up in a “I surrender” position and DESPERATELY PLEADING with Jesus to NOT be tormented!

And it was THAT mental imagery in my mind which served as a VERY POWERFUL force of spiritual understanding within my spirit! For just like a human person might hold both their hands up in a “I surrender, I don’t want any trouble” position if there was a gunman who was threatening their VERY LIFE, so did THE DEMON likely do in the presence of Jesus! WOW! PROFOUND!

So therefore, what can we gather from these 3 passages in the bible? Answer: DEMONS **FEAR** JESUS! That’s right…..out-right **FEAR HIM!** So it stands to reason: If DEMONS fear Jesus, how much more does SATAN fear Jesus? Answer: Likely a whole HECK of alot! Why? Because he simply KNOWS that he’s powerless against Him, amongst many other things! Which then even further stands to reason: If SATAN and DEMONS actually **FEAR JESUS**, (despite any major “anger issues” they might have AGAINST Jesus), then why should WE, as born-again Christians/Messianic Jewish-roots Christians FEAR **THEM?** It stands to reason!

There’s yet another bible passage that I’d like to share, which is Matthew 10:28 [New Testament, Book of Matthew, Verse 28] which states: “And fear NOT them which kill the body, but are NOT able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is ABLE to destroy BOTH soul and body in hell”.

In other words, don’t FEAR the spirits and/or the people that have the ability to “kill you” since they ONLY have “ability” to kill your BODY, ONLY but NOT your soul…..Instead, you should FEAR GOD/JESUS since ONLY GOD/JESUS has the power to “kill” both your BODY ***AND*** your soul in hell and/or the lake of fire! OUCH! Therefore, in hindsight, the Matthew 10:28 passage is telling us in NO uncertain terms whom/what we SHOULD and SHOULD **NOT** fear, in the “biblical sense!”

Too many Christians today FEAR! Rather it’s FEAR of “workplace issues”, FEAR of the future, etc. But what they oftentimes don’t realize (myself included, sometimes) is that SATAN AND DEMONS are the driving force BEHIND that “FEAR!” And as long as we don’t have any “idols” or “demonic objects” in our homes (ouija boards, tarot cards, New Age and/or metal music, carved images, witchcraft-themed movies, books, etc.), we have POWER & AUTHORITY in the name of Christ to REBUKE THAT DEMONIC SPIRIT/THOSE DEMONIC SPIRITS OF FEAR!

But yet, here’s the sad reality. As long as a “Christian” has demonic “objects” in their possession, OR consume them (such as movies and TV shows), Satan/demons have the LEGAL spiritual “right” to RULE OVER THEM (**UNTIL** said object is REMOVED or said consumption is FULLY REPENTED OF)! Sad but true! Many Christians today have demonic objects in their home and don’t even know it!

For example, many think that Harry Potter books or movies are “harmless!” And yet others at some point (myself included) attempted to “justify” their watching of “Witchcraft-themed shows” (like Salem for instance) telling themselves that they’re just spiritually educating themselves about the Enemy Satan, so they know how he “works” in the Kingdom of Darkness, etc.!

Folks, let me tell you something. I MYSELF made the mistake of watching some of the “Salem” TV series on Netflix (LONG BEFORE the Netflix BAN was needed on the part of many Christians!) And I even tried to justify it to myself, telling myself that it was somehow OK to watch the show, IF I was only doing it from a “get-myself-educated-on-the-schemes-and-workings-of-the-Devil” type of way!

But BOY WAS I MISTAKEN! Not long after I started watching the 1st episode, I had an “ungodly spirit” that invaded my home! A dark shadow! It oftentimes “slightly” shook the end of my bed at night while I was trying to sleep! It would follow me into the bathroom and would sometimes abruptly make the shower curtain rod fall on me whenever I tried to use the toilet or take a shower! It terrified my cat(s) at night and made them “growl” and “hiss” for absolutely no reason! I’d go out in the hallway and would see my cat(s) growling and hissing at “shadows that weren’t there!”

And at first, I’ll admit, I was in a bit of denial. I mean, you hear about invasion of demonic spirits in movies and on certain TV shows. But not ONCE as a Christian do you EVER think that it will come to YOUR house for something so small as watching a Witchcraft-themed TV show (even if only for “education of how the Enemy works” purposes!)

I honestly thought at the time that if the Lord Jesus KNEW MY heart and KNEW I wasn’t even “remotely” interested in Witchcraft, but that I only wanted to gain a better understanding of HOW the Enemy works, that I’d somehow be “OK” and that demonic spirits would NOT be allowed to enter into my home! But I was WRONG! After about a week or so of “the attacks” and attempting to rebuke the spirit in the name of Christ but getting no results, I asked it outloud one time during one of its “attacks”: “WHY DO YOU KEEP TORMENTING ME?”, and it hissed out (just like a snake) ONE word and one word ONLY: SALEM!”

And that’s when I knew it was the UNGODLY TV-show by that same name that was GIVING this “demonic spirit” the legal spiritual RIGHT to invade my home. And so then when I personally inquired to Jesus about WHY He had allowed this “dark, demonic spirit” to invade my home, and “attack me”, Jesus informed me that it was actually for my own benefit, so THAT I would learn the hard way the TOTAL SPIRITUAL DANGER that goes along with watching ANY type of program that has a “positive view” of Witchcraft in it! NO CHRISTIAN – MYSELF INCLUDED – SHOULD BE WATCHING **ANY** TYPE OF PROGRAM OR MOVIE LIKE THAT – **EVEN IF** IT’S ONLY TO “GET EDUCATED ON THE ENEMY!”

Thankfully, my experience eventually came to a “safe ending”. Once I realized just how SATANIC the show was, (and how it very likely portrayed ACTUAL SATANISM), I IMMEDIATELY stopped watching the Series, I prayed to Jesus for forgiveness, and vowed to never watch a single episode of THAT or any OTHER show LIKE that, EVER, EVER AGAIN! And just like that, the DEMONIC SPIRIT was GONE! No more “end of bed shaking” in the middle of the night, no more shower curtain rod violently falling on me in the bathroom, no more terrified growling & hissing cat(s) in the middle of the night, etc!

Now, I have to make an honest confession, here. Did I somewhat “fear” the “demonic spirit” that kept attacking me, while it was attacking me? At first, I did a little, yeah. Why? Because I didn’t know WHY it was there. I didn’t think at first that there was ANY reason FOR it to be there in my home! And see folks, that’s where ALOT of problems with our spiritual walk with Christ can come in…….when we DON’T have our “full spiritual thinking caps” on and in our “leisure time”: For THAT is the time when we are MOST vulnerable to falling victim to Satan’s devices and he KNOWS it!

Now, if “I”, a teacher of God’s Written Word, can fall that easily to something like that (telling myself that it was OK since I was ONLY watching it to gain more understanding of HOW the Enemy works against believers, etc.), how much easier would it be for a non-teacher of God’s Written Word to fall that easily for something like that? FOLKS, WE MUST REMAIN ON **FULL SPIRITUAL GUARD** AT **ALL TIMES** AND IN **ALL PLACES!”** (And believe me, that goes just as much for ME as it does for anyone else who’s a believer in Jesus!)

But I tell ya, folks: Two of Satan’s MOST BIGGEST spiritual battlegrounds against born-again Christians today is at home/among non-believing family members and THE WORKPLACE! Because if you’re working at a workplace where hardly NOBODY is a bible-believing, bible-adhering Christian, it’s going to get harder & harder to adhere to Christ and his gospel as the years roll by in SUCH a “place!” SO HOLD FAST TO THE FAITH!

The non-believers (or rather, the demonic spirits residing INSIDE the hearts, souls and MINDS of unbelievers) are constantly “testing you”, constantly “sizing you up”, and/or “waiting for you to FAIL!” And this could be manifested in any NUMBER of ways……..They or a manager might attempt to micromanage you, they might try to get you to participate in the “latest gossip”, they might tempt you to work on the sabbath or give you more work than they know that you can do at any one given time and then criticize you when you fail, etc.  

So folks, BE CAREFUL! BE ON YOUR FULL SPIRITUAL GUARD AT ALL TIMES! I can’t emphasize that ENOUGH!!!!!!!! Especially since these “unsaved coworkers” don’t yet even KNOW that they’re being spiritually deceived by demons in all of those things! So pray for them, pray for them, pray for them and don’t ever STOP praying for them folks, MARK MY WORDS! And pray for yourselves as well, since we all know it’s very easy to be “swayed” by coworkers. 

But going back to my main point: Satan/Demons FEAR the name of Jesus! Therefore, why should WE, as as born-again Christians, fear THEM? It stands to reason! For WHEN we fear Satan and/or demons, we are, in all actuality, fearing beings that FEAR JESUS! Now think about that. Truly sit back and think about that for awhile. Let that thought ruminate for a bit in your mind. Because if we FEAR demonic beings that FEAR JESUS, what does that say about US as so-called “born-again believers?”

If there’s ever a time in our lives when we fear Satan, fear demons and/or fear persecution, we’re doing it wrong! That means that something is missing in our spiritual “walk” with Christ! Because NO Christian with the correct, FULL spiritual armour is going to fear the Devil or Demons! (Not for ANY reason!) Instead, they will laugh in Satan’s or the demon’s face whenever they “make threats” and loudly and boldly proclaim: “I rebuke you in the name of Christ, now GO!” without any problems or hesitations! In fact, they will KNOW that they know that Christ has their back, no matter what and they need NOT fear!

Are YOU at the place in your life right now where you have ZERO fear of Satan, demons and/or the future? If not, WHY? And if not, what sorts of steps must you take to NOT be afraid anymore, in the name of Jesus? What it help you to know that Jesus HIMSELF was afraid in the Garden of Gethsemane when he KNEW he’d be facing “human death” for the first time?

And yet, even IN SPITE OF HIS FEAR, he STILL trusted the Heavenly Father? If Jesus could still trust the Heavenly Father during HIS time of trial & tribulation (and FEAR) on the Earth, then so can WE also trust Jesus (who OVERCAME death & the grave) during OUR times of trials and tribulations on the Earth, right folks? IT’S THAT SIMPLE!

Isaiah 41:10 proclaims: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness while John 16:33 states: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world“.

In other words, Jesus is telling us here that WHATEVER scary situation we might face in life (being fired from our jobs, a severe medical diagnosis, a death, a traumatic event, severe persecution, etc.), we do NOT need to worry since Jesus IS IN CONTROL OF IT ALL! He’s got the power of the UNIVERSE at his fingertips! He created the universe with just the mere sound of his VOICE!

Therefore, is He REALLY gonna create the universe with just the mere sound of his voice (“Let there be light”, etc.) and then scratch his head in confusion over how to help us deal with OUR life’s “treacherous situations?” OFCOURSE NOT! Jesus KNOWS what he’s doing, no matter what, so we got to remember that, folks! Even though I know sometimes that’s easier said than done. I know it’s “hard” to trust Christ in times of SEVERE TURMOIL in our lives! I know many Christians have the “why me” type questions whenever something bad happens. Just like I KNOW how hard it is to believe that Jesus is CONSTANTLY working things out for the BEST for us that are believers in HIM!

But one thing I DO know is THIS: Jesus is faithful and TRUE! And not once has he EVER, EVER, **EVER** let me down! NOT ONCE! He has ALWAYS and FOREVER been there for me! It is ME that hasn’t always been there for HIM the way I should at various small points in my life! But thankfully for me and for ALL of us, he is a loving and JUST God, who FORGIVES US FOR ALL OUR SINS! We might as feel at times as though Jesus has forgotten about us on this “Earth rock” down here, but believe me, he hasn’t! It’s US who forget HIM!

We as Christians (as a whole) tend to sometimes get slightly “lukewarm” in our faith at certain times in our lives! When severe persecution bears us down and makes us feel exhausted and drained of energy, temporarily giving up seems like the most EASIEST  & most CONVENIENT thing to do! But folks, we can NOT give up! Not NOW! Not EVER! ESPECIALLY IN THESE HERE LAST DAYS OF HUMAN HISTORY! WE ARE THE LAST GENERATION, FOLKS! https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2018/09/11/we-are-the-last-generation-biblical-proof/

We are the last “100% human species” on this Earth! By the time our children grow up into their 20’s, true 100% humans will be a thing of the past and “cyborgs” will be THE NORM! Quite sobering to think about, isn’t it folks? Yet Jesus says we do NOT need to fear for the future, our salvation is certain (provided we still believe, trust AND obey him and do NOT take The Mark of the Beast for ANY circumstances!)

Jesus Christ HIMSELF tells us in Luke 12:32 “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. So lets unpack this a bit. First off, Jesus is telling us NOT to fear. And then the 2nd part is even more beautiful than the 1st part; Jesus is telling us that God DELIGHTS in rewarding us “eternal life” in his “eternal heavenly kingdom”. Therefore, if we DELIGHT in the Lord Jesus AND in obeying him, then someday, the Heavenly Father will DELIGHT in US! What a splendid thought, folks! 

Also: If you have FEAR in ANY area of your life and/or spiritual walk with Christ, WRITE IT DOWN! Then read a scripture in the bible about Jesus overcoming demons, etc. Then go back and read your list and ask yourself if your “fear” is justified! My guess is that it WON’T be, in your mind or heart! However, if you’re STILL unsure rather your “fear” is justified or not, PRAY TO JESUS ABOUT IT! (The most easiest, yet, most OVERLOOKED solution to ANY problem we might have today – PRAYER!) And whatever person, thing or object you fear, fill in the blank with said person, object or thing in the prayer down below!

Pray the following: “Jesus, I fear ________. I’m not sure WHY I fear ______ but I do. I’m not sure what to do about ________. But I know that you DO know what to do about _________ and my FEAR of it! So please Jesus, help me overcome my fear of __________. And make it to the point where someday soon, I will LAUGH at my initial fear of ________ and will fully realize that Satan is a LIAR! Please help me realize that my fear of ________ comes from a DEMONIC SPIRIT and that in YOUR heavenly name, I have authority OVER said “spirit”.

P.S.: Please also reveal to me if there’s any demonic objects in my car or home that are “allowing” the spirit of FEAR to “fester” in my life/home/workplace and help me to GET RID of those objects, if so! Please help give me the necessary tools to get RID of the SPIRIT of FEAR and have it leaving me/my home/my workplace IN NO TIME! Please instead REPLACE the spirit of FEAR in my life with YOUR Holy Spirit, THE SPIRIT OF FAITH AND OF TRUTH! I say this in your heavenly name, Jesus! Amen!” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RISE OF THE MACHINES/ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, PART TWO

As the field of artificial intelligence is taking off at breakneck speed, and as there’s been much talk lately of “the real-life Skynet” possibly coming about in today’s world, [please remember that Skynet was the company that produced The Terminator in the Terminator movies with ARNOLD S.], I’m now kind’ve wondering rather or not it’s possible that Revelation 13:15 could actually be REFERRING to such an outcome….as in, the ULTIMATE “terminator of terminators”, who’s created by the Antichrist but who is indwelt by Satan himself. (When I was reading a portion of Revelation 13 the other day, that’s what IMMEDIATELY came to my mind).

For Revelation 13:15 says that the Antichrist will “create an image to the beast”. That, to me, sounds like some sort of “Skynet-esque” type creation. And then, the verse further goes on to say that the Antichrist will “give life to the image”, so that it will speak. Does that NOT sound like the field of robotics/artificial intelligence to YOU? Because we know that the Antichrist can’t make a NATURAL CREATION. Therefore, he has to make an ARTIFICIAL ONE. And then the verse further goes on to say: “and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed”. And THAT, to me, sounds like the “Terminator of all Terminators”.

In fact, I kind’ve envision it (the Revelation 13:15 outcome) as a human-like Android, but with “god-like” super-human strength. I DON’T think it’ll be a simple “hologram/holographic” like image since we already have those and they’re “no big deal”. We also already have “speaking Androids” (which are freaky, btw but STILL very “basic” at this point). But this particular “image”, I think, will have to be something EXCEPTIONAL…….something that’s possibly never been seen before by mankind……hence, its “allure”.

So perhaps it’ll be the MOST human-like Android EVER….Or it could just be some sort of speaking statue made of gold. All WE know from the bible is that the “image will SPEAK” and be very life-like! And since Satan’s goal is to DECEIVE MANY, the Antichrist will probably make the image look somewhat like Jesus or a “prophet”. So just imagine this for a second, folks! Just imagine a human-like Android walking the Earth in the VISUAL FORM of Jesus that preaches to people an UNBIBLICAL GOSPEL!

(And if it’s not an Android-ish Skynet-ish type thing, then perhaps it’ll be a “walking, talking golden statue of Jesus” that the Antichrist will “bring to life” in order to deceive many into thinking it’s the “biblical Jesus” when it’s NOT! OR….it could be a moving “Android” of the “Virgin Mary”, etc! DON’T BE DECEIVED, FOLKS!) 

Anyways, just some spiritual food for thought. I’m not saying that every other Christian out there has to agree with my interpretation but I was just pondering all this the other day as I started to think more deeply about artificial intelligence and its long-term “spiritual implications” upon mankind.

Revelation 13:16-17 further goes on to say: “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that NO MAN might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” [And in the bible, the word “man” means MANKIND, so that would include women & children as well].

So we know THREE things are gonna happen when the Antichrist comes on the scene. 1) He will create an “image” of the beast (which is Satan). And 2) He will give “life” to the image and make it “speak” and also that 3) ALL who refuse to worship the “image of the beast” or the “number of his name” will be KILLED.

So what can we gather from this? If we put two and two together, it would most certainly seem like taking the MARK of the beast and worshiping the LIVING IMAGE (Android?/Terminator-like thing?) of the beast are one and the same. For worshiping the “living/speaking image of the beast” seems to require taking his “Mark” at the same exact time.

But also at the same time, it’s also an ECONOMIC thing, for NO person on the Earth will be able to buy or sell without this “Mark”. And the book of Revelation warns that WHOMEVER takes this “Mark” will be DAMNED BY GOD FOR ETERNITY!

But one thing’s for certain: robots/artificial intelligence will DEFINITELY become smarter than humans someday, no doubt about it. The only question is, WHEN? Elon Musk’s solution is for us to “merge” with machines. Steven Hawking’s solution is for mankind to “attempt” to inhabit the cosmos. But Elon Musk’s idea chills me to the core when I think more in depthly about the Mark of the Beast and/or the image of the beast. As for Mr. Hawking’s idea? No matter WHERE you go or WHAT you do in the universe, you CAN’T run away from Jesus Christ, for he hails from EVERLASTING to EVERLASTING! From every single corner of the cosmos to the depths of the sea!

[As a side note, the bible says that the BIBLICAL Jesus is going to return to Earth from the clouds of heaven. So I DO think it’s highly possible that HAARP/Project Bluebeam will try to create a “false Jesus hologram in the clouds of the sky”, in order to try to deceive many! So….how can we distinguish between a so-called fake Jesus “‘hologram” in the sky and the REAL Jesus? The REAL Jesus will rapture up all his Christian saints! Therefore, if an “image” of Jesus is just sitting there in the clouds of they sky and NOT doing anything (i.e. NOT rapturing UP Christian saints into the clouds), you can pretty much KNOW it’s a false, hologramized “image” of Jesus!] 

Nevertheless, I was ALSO wondering the other day if any other Christians out there thought there might be a possible link between Revelation 13:15 and artificial intelligence. It’s certainly interesting to think about, especially in these here End Times that we’re currently living in. And the more I learn about artificial intelligence, the more I don’t like it and see it as a very “dark”, spiritual thing. It (A.I.) is no doubt being promoted in today’s world as a “good thing” (the “family-friend robot”, the “companion robot”, the “assistant robot”, etc.) but believe me, it’s not as “good” as it seems! There is a MUCH darker spiritual picture to the story here, folks!

They’ve now started to create the concept of “bionic insects and animals”, “sex robots”, etc! So then it’s like, okay, WHERE do they draw the line? When is too far, TOO far? Because for THEM, there likely IS no “too far!” It’s almost like some of the elite A.I. scientists of today are saying to themselves AND to the world: “No God, we can do better”. It’s quite chilling, actually.

In the following video, Pastor Billy Crone gives an excellent presentation of the LONG-TERM DANGERS OF A.I./RISE OF THE MACHINES:

 

 

Witchcraft: The Devil’s Den

Many people have probably seen the movies like “The Craft”, “Practical Magic”, “The Haunting”, “Wizard of Oz”, etc. But behind all the “innocent-looking” fun and games encounters something deeply more sinister. Truth be told, there IS no such thing as “white magic”.  ALL “magic” is of demonic origin.

Basically, in a nutshell, wicca/witchcraft is nothing more than worship of nature/”spirits” and those “spirits” are ANYTHING but “good”. Why? Because the HOLY angels of the Lord (the ones who DIDN’T rebel against God, that is) NEVER, NEVER communicate to the human race through “spells”, “tarot cards”, “nature altars”, “crystal balls”, “gemstones”, “Wiccan/Satanic/Pagan altars”, etc. It is specifically against their “heavenly code of conduct” to do so.

In fact, the ONLY type of “communication” a HOLY angel of the Lord is allowed to have with the human race is that which is meant to save the human from death/physical or spiritual harm OR to test a human’s character/relate an important message from the Lord. Anything else is suspect.

The bible says that Satan/The Devil can masquerade (disguise himself) as an “angel of light”. So then is it really any wonder that his “demon spirits” (the FALLEN ANGELS he controls) can do the SAME? 

The truth is, just about ANY true form of “Wicca” requires an individual to pray to someONE or SOMETHING. And we know from the bible that praying to ANYTHING other than the HEBREW Jesus Christ/Almighty Yeshua is actually praying to Satan/demons (like it or not). So although many Wiccans today CLAIM they don’t actually worship Satan, whenever they pray to “spirits” OTHER than the HEBREW Jesus Christ, they actually DO worship Satan/demons! 

In short, partaking of a “spell” or “incantation” is nothing short of CONJURING UP DEMONS (like it or not). And what’s more, Satan and demons did not create the universe and the heavens. Therefore, their “power” is NO MATCH to the Lord of the Bible’s/Almighty Yeshua’s/Jesus Christ’s power. For Satan and the demons can do NOTHING apart from the Lord’s power. Therefore, directly OR indirectly praying to/conjuring up Satan/demons in spells is FUTILE. And can cost a person their ETERNITY! So is it worth it, folks? Think about that one for awhile!

Wicca (much like Satanism) is a “progressive stages” religion. Meaning, in order to *further advance* oneself in “The Craft” and/or “The Dark Arts”, one must be willing to sacrifice more and more of themselves (and consequently, more of their SOULS in the process). And oftentimes, to reach the most HIGHEST stage in Wicca, one must essentially sell their soul (quite honestly).

Many people may “think” they’ll gain alot by following Satanism/Wicca, but consequently, they also have to give up alot, in the process. (And in Satanism, one often has to give up a family member or loved one in order to further progress. Just look at all the famous people who oddly got famous AFTER one of their friends or loved ones died. Need I say anything more?) 

Twenty years ago, “Wicca”, “Satanism” and “New Age” was still considered controversial and “weird” to most people. But now it’s become nearly mainstream/commonplace. Hollywood is like the Wiccan/Satanic COMMAND CENTER of the “New Age Movement” in today’s world. Like it or not, Witchcraft/Satanism is EVERYWHERE today…….

It’s in the movies and/or TV shows we watch, the books/magazines we read, the music we listen to, the videogames we play, the horoscopes we read, the “Christianized” Pagan holidays we celebrate, the board games we buy, etc. And human global society, as a whole, has now gotten SO used to it, that most people barely even notice it, anymore. 

I was just AMAZED at all the Satanic imagery I saw in the TV shows “Salem”, “American Horror Story, Season 3: Coven”, and “Game of Thrones”. For those who say “there’s no Satanism in Witchcraft”, explain to me why a “witch doctor” made the character Kalise EAT A HUMAN HEART to “cure her husband of his sickness” or whatever, why the TV witches of Salem “do Satanic blood rituals”, and why “American Horror Story, Season 3: Coven” combines MANY, MANY “Satanic elements” in their “witchcraft”.

But then again, that’s my entire point. Wicca IS an offshoot of Satanism and many times even COMBINES Satanism in their “elements” and “practices”. [And quite honestly, in MY opinion, both Satanism AND Witchcraft originated with Nimrod and Semiaris].  

After digging and doing some research, I’m astounded about just how TRUE to Satanism/Witchcraft these TV shows actually are. I’ll admit that at first I thought these TV shows were just being “overly dramatic” to gain more views and “sensationalizing” some of the stuff. But the shows are actually more “accurate” than what I had previously thought.

However, I’ve now come to the conclusion that the producers of “Salem” probably wanted the show to be FAR more “gory”/Satanically accurate but probably held back or “toned down” ALOT OF STUFF out of fear of offending people and/or “revealing too many secrets” about the “Dark Craft”. Because remember that many people that follow Witchcraft/The Occult like things to remain hidden. [Although many more TV shows today are becoming more bold and blatant in their “witcheries”]. 

What’s most troubling to me is the moral decay/demise of today’s younger generation. They’re honestly teaching Witchcraft in the schools under the “guise” of Education (Harry Potter, folks!) And all those parents who innocently write off “Harry Potter” as JUST ANOTHER BOOK/MOVIE SERIES, consider the follow photo (which says it all):

harry_potter_children_pentagram

Parents (and all Harry Potter/Wicca fans out there), let me tell you something……

What YOU think is THIS:  HarryPOA and nature worship

Is actually THIS: HORNS POSTER nature worship2 SATANIC, HARRY POTTER1

Witchcraft is most tempting to those who feel as though they have no control over their lives. For others, it’s just an innocent “curiosity” or “fascination”. Some may falsely think that the Lord of the bible is calling them to “Wicca” but trust me, there’s nothing good ABOUT it!

When I was 19-21 years old, I briefly dabbled in the study of Wicca, thinking that “white magic” was “good magic”. I was DECEIVED! And nearly payed for it WITH MY LIFE! For ONLY by the grace of Yeshua/Jesus Christ Almighty was I SAVED from following a path of Wicca (and the eternal spiritual destruction it entails, if a person DIES in the sin of following Wicca!)

I said it once and I’ll say it again! ALL MAGIC IS “BAD MAGIC” for ALL “magic” comes from demons! What the Lord Yeshua/Jesus Christ did in the bible wasn’t magic, it was SUPERNATURAL! Why? Because the Lord did NOT have to call upon any SPIRIT/SPIRITS to do his bidding FOR him, he did it of his own supernatural ability………he IS God, afterall……..

And for those of you folks out there that doubt that Wicca’s “much of a sin”, please prayerfully and humbly consider the following bible passages:

OLD TESTAMENT:

  • Leviticus 19:31
  • Exodus 22:18
  • Deuteronomy 18: 9-12
  • Leviticus 20:6
  • Isaiah 8:19
  • 2 Kings 21:6
  • Isaiah 19:3
  • Isaiah 47: 8-14
  • 1 Samuel 15:23
  • 1 Chronicles 10: 13-14
  • 2 Chronicle 33:6

NEW TESTAMENT:

  • Acts 19:19
  • Galatians 5:19-21
  • Revelation 21:8
  • Revelation 22:15
  • Acts 8:9

And please know this, folks: IF you are being drawn to Wicca/The Dark Arts/Satanism, you ARE under SEVERE DEMONIC ATTACK and I pray in the name of Almighty Yeshua that you will be FREED from such “attack”! In fact, I pray in the heavenly name of Almighty Yeshua that WHOMEVER reads this post and/or sees my Youtube video on the subject WILL be freed from the bounds of Satanism/Witchcraft and that the Lord of the Bible/Almighty Yeshua will set your soul free from the darkness and give your mind, heart, body and spirit a newfound love and hope and salvation in HIM and him alone, for ALL of eternity! Amen. 

Autism, ADHD, Depresison & School Shootings: What’s The Connection?

Though I have known about “autism” for years, what originally got me researching its “true origins” was an article awhile back in 2013 that attempted to tie in autism with ingredients that were being put into “child vaccines”.

Please remember awhile back how they (the CDC, big pharma, etc) were on what seemed like an “aggressive crusade” on making sure every single child got those vaccines (even if the PARENTS of said children rejected on religious grounds, etc.). And I don’t know but something about that just seemed a bit odd to me….as though there was another “secret agenda” on their parts….

But as as I sat around and thought about this for awhile, I happened to see a YouTube video of a girl named Carly who had SEVERE AUTISM. The article that accompanied the video said Carly couldn’t talk (either since she was born or since the age of 4 or something like that).

I watched the video of Carly very, very carefully (even slowed it down at certain parts) and I couldn’t help but notice that at certain parts of the video, she gives off demonic growls and smiles (as if it’s an actual scene out of the Exorcist movie!!!) 

[Note: at 0:47-0:48, 4:24-4:48, 5:30-5:31, 5:49-5:50 and ***7:06-7:19*** of the video down below, you can hear “demonic growls” coming from this girl with severe autism: (also: one of her therapists stated that she still has days where she’ll do things like “lock herself into a bathroom, strip down naked, and smear fecal matter across the walls”. If that right there doesn’t sound like classic demonic possession to you, compared with the “demonic growls” heard throughout the video, then I don’t know what does!)]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xsfNrG5Bnw

And that’s when I began to do my “research” on mental illnesses in general and came up with the theory that ALL forms of “autism” and “mental disturbances” are of DEMONIC NATURE and DEMONIC ORIGIN.

There’s some conspiracy theorists out there that think that they are putting strange chemicals in vaccines to MAKE children get “autism” or “mental disturbances” but what if it goes much deeper than that? What if it’s not chemicals they’re putting into the vaccines but actual demonic spirits (as in, conjuring dark spirits INTO the vaccines?) I don’t know, just a thought.

Most of my Christian friends would probably write me off as “crazy” but the more and more YouTube videos I’ve seen of “autistic children”, the more I’m convinced it’s not of biological origin but DARK SPIRITUAL/DEMON ORIGIN and I think anointing their head with olive oil and praying IN the name of Jesus Christ with all one’s might and WITH total 100% faith in their hearts that Jesus CAN and WILL cure that child/that person is the only way to CURE such people!

The media/etc. doesn’t want parents to know that because big pharma is big business, big money for these folks. I’m even now starting to wonder IN GENERAL how much of the field of “psychiatry” is even legit or if it’s all just a “pseudo field”, altogether.

A kid goes to the psychiatrist these days, they are prescribed “mind-altering drugs” (which, in some cases, has proven to be FATAL, if not to the kid in question, then to others around him/her). The kid (ESPECIALLY if they’re Christian) should INSTEAD be told: “you’re inflicted with the demonic spirits of fear, hatred, doubt, and anger. Pray to the Lord Jesus Christ and submit to His will. He CAN and He WILL take all these negative emotions away from you if you let Him!” Notice the difference there? One options alters their mind (and not always for the good, either) while the other option gives them TRUTH and HOPE.

In fact, all the school shooters had ONE thing in common that that the media hasn’t hit on: they were ALL on some sort of mind-altering drug prescribed by “psychiatrists”. It really makes a person wonder what’s actually in those drugs. Because those drugs (just like the vaccines) obviously have some sort of “demonic spirits” attached to them.

In fact, a most recent AP news article states the following (which proves my point):Spencer’s parents said he was on antidepressants and medication for attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder when he took a loaded .357 Magnum and unloaded .22 handgun to Harrison High School on Jan. 25, 2013″. [Source: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/montana-community-turns-away-teen-with-troubled-past/ar-BBhEHqP]. 

And not only that, but think about it. Oftentimes, the very side effects of antidepressants THEMSELVES actually INCREASES thoughts/feelings of anger/suicide, etc in depressive patients. WHY IS THIS? 😦 Has nobody ever stopped to wonder WHY THIS IS and exactly WHAT “substances” they’re TRULY giving out to our kids today, here in America? 

Hitler’s goal during WWII was more or less corruption of the youth (specifically, Christian youth). So are “demonic vaccines” and “demonic pills” really any different? The young people are tomorrow’s future. Drug them up, destroy them, corrupt them, and then you have a complete world without God and I think that’s what their ultimate goal is.

Like it or not, we live in a Luciferian society today and Satan has a heck of alot more people in his “army” than just fallen angels. Many people in our government, media, health industry are all about furthering the Luciferian agenda. So what better way to do that than to drug up our kids, give them demonic vaccines and put them through pro-homosexual-agenda schools? Think about it.

I’ve read COUNTLESS articles most recently about the media trying to make Christian PARENTS look like the bad guys because they now want to homeschool their kids and don’t want them subjected to vaccines/Common Core/pro-homosexual-agenda/pro-abortion/pro-Islam viewpoints in the schools. But again: it’s all about EROSION OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY FOR CHRISTIANS!

Bit by bit and little by little, they’re dumbing down the education our kids today here in America are receiving, and bringing in NEW thoughts and ideas that go AGAINST the bible! Look around you! See how SPOILED kids are these days! See how their parents now give them anything they want, practically! See how arrogant, prideful, disobedient and “self-entitled” they are! See how MISINFORMED they are about United States History, the TRUE religion of Islam (which is violent), etc.

And these young people today here in America are TOMORROW’S FUTURE, folks! What’s gonna happen, for example, when the “new generation” of air traffic controllers fall asleep on the job, are late for work or are too busy texting someone when they’re supposed to be watching all airplane traffic? Or how about one of your bills not being payed on time because the young person working there at said company was “too stoned” to know what they doing? Or worse yet……..what if there was a complete and almost-total shutdown of the economy someday (the transportation system, banks, gas companies, etc.) because all the young people (18-35) didn’t want to work?

This USED to be America. But now our once great country is slipping away……What have we BECOME?……..A land of sinners, perhaps. “But…….but……..I want to live in sin! MY enjoyment of sin is FAR more important than YOUR religious liberty!”, they oftentimes say. As Christians, we (for the most part) have passively let the liberals/CDC/Big Pharma/”psychiatrists”/LGBT Activists/Planned Parenthood run all over us (metaphorically & spiritually speaking). So it’s really no wonder that hardly no-one in this country respects Christians, anymore. Cause remember: “those who stand for nothing fall for anything”. Does that NOT describe our current world today? Especially this here American country?

Think of Christians as the nerdy kid with glasses and anti-Christians as the big bully. How much longer are we going to let the big bully terrorize us, metaphorically speaking? It’s time we took a stand, people! Don’t be afraid to be fired from your job if they fire you for your biblical beliefs! Don’t be afraid if people write you off as “crazy” for being “believers of The Book” (the bible). Don’t be afraid to blatantly disagree with homosexuality, Roman Catholicism, or Islam. Don’t be afraid when people persecute you and say all manner of things about you due to Jesus’s name……..

Don’t be afraid to share your testimony of Jesus with others! Don’t be afraid of all the LGBT Activists and their “agenda” against Christians and Christian businesses! Don’t be afraid to disagree with an Evolutionist! Don’t be afraid of non-Christians or any blatant threats they try to make against you! Cause remember Revelation 12:12 which states: “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time“.

But it’s not just a mere EROSION OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY that they want, folks! They want us in complete and total submission (rather we are “Christians” or not!) They want total MIND CONTROL over us! If they can’t get someone addicted to the latest music, TV programs or movies…….they’ll try to “medicate them”, instead. Just look at the SLEW of commercials lately for this medication or that medication…..

But see….that’s where the bible comes in……believing in the bible and its precepts somehow magically DEACTIVATES the “mind control programming” that they (the Luciferian society) tries to place on people through books, TV, music, movies, social media, popular culture, magazines, newspapers, “medications”, etc.

And that’s WHY they (the Luciferian society and all who represent them) HATE the bible and Jesus Christ so much! Have you EVER really stopped to wonder WHY that is……? WHY there is SO much hate for the bible and Jesus Christ Almighty today? Because he’s the only one IN THE UNIVERSE that can truly set a person free! And they HATE THAT! Jesus Christ interferes with THEIR “mind control” of people! He can set a person FREE from homosexuality, abortion, “self-entitlement”, materialism, and ALL manners of spiritual bondage/sin.

Every SINGLE human on this Earth (NO EXCEPTIONS) tries to fill that “hole in their heart” with SOMETHING (rather it’s Jesus Christ himself or some other person/thing). And what YOU decide to “fill your heart with” will affect you for the REST OF ETERNITY! The Luciferian establishment wants to make sure you choose Satan/sin/darkness (which later leads to ETERNAL CONDEMNATION IN THE FLAMES!) But Jesus Christ Almighty & his heavenly angels want you to choose HIM/righteousness (which later leads to ETERNAL PARADISE!) So what will YOU fill your mind/heart/body/spirit with? Choose wisely!

 

 

How Satan Destroys the Mind, Heart, Body, & Souls of People!

We’ve all probably seen movies like “The Exorcist”, “The Omen”, “The Unholy”, etc. But is that what the Devil’s REALLY like all the time, when he tempts or confronts humankind (rather religious or not) alike? Does he REALLY come full out with guns blazing all the time? Or is he more subtle in nature? Today, I submit to you that 9 times out of 10, he comes in a more subtle nature. He does NOT come out in such a way as to say “hi, I’m the devil and I’m here to deceive you, mhuahahahaha”.  He usually comes by way through the people and things that we are heavily influenced by (friends, family, coworkers, the music we listen to, the movies we watch, the videogames we play, etc.)

Now, does that mean he POSSESSES those people and those things? Sometimes he can and sometimes he will. But typically, he or his demons will speak his message THROUGH that person or THROUGH that movie or TV show or videogame. For example, maybe you have an Atheist friend that starts persecuting you for your faith (that’s the devil speaking through your friend). Or you have someone (a stranger or a coworker) come up and say a not so nice thing to/about you (again, the devil and his demons speaking through that person to try to make you feel bad about yourself).

Or perhaps your friends try to talk you into going to see some non-Christian movie (again, the devil speaking through your friends……as he knows you won’t listen to him directly, but maybe he can try to trick you through your friends, am I right?) Or you’ll just be sitting there reading your bible one day when all of a sudden, you just feel COMPLETELY hungry or COMPLETELY tired or the like. The spiritual attack on you by the devil is SO subtle that oftentimes, you don’t even see it happening. And that’s how the Devil rolls. Subtlety.  Because remember that his goal is to DECEIVE MANY. So how could he ever do that if he were to come full out with guns blazing, announcing who is from the get go? That would pretty much just defeat his purpose of deceiving many, now wouldn’t it?

But not only is he subtle, he is DETERMINED. He and his demons will STOP AT NOTHING until they get a humankind person to fall from grace. (And for the Jews that don’t already accept Jesus Christ as their Lord & Messiah, the Devil already gots a TWOFOLD HOLD on them, (for now), and I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will soon rescue such out of Satan’s hands. But for the Jews that already DO accept Jesus Christ as their Lord & Messiah, Satan and his demons have to try to fight TEN TIMES HARDER to try to get that person to fall).

Basically, Satan’s technique is like the “stratagem” used in the movie “Mean Girls” where a girl’s bestfriend secretly helps her seek revenge against a popular girl by writing out an agenda on a chalkboard of all the things they’d have to ruin in the girl’s life so they could effectively ruin the popular girl. That’s how Satan rolls. He takes out his spiritual chalkboard, sort’ve speak, writes out a spiritual agenda how to ruin each and every humankind’s soul (rather religious or not) — ESPECIALLY the souls of Jews and Christians — and then goes down the list:

1. “Their marriage is good for right now? Okay, lets bring in exhibit A (attractive woman) and exhibit B (attractive man) into their respective lives and see if we can’t shake things up a bit in their marriage”. And then, together with his demons, (who oftentimes believe it or not, can actually “inhabit” the bodies of “the other man” or “the other woman”), Satan works to wreck havoc on that marriage. And if the two people IN that marriage aren’t submitting themselves to Christ & the gospel, they’re “easy pickins” for The Devil and his demons to swoop right in and destroy that marriage.

2. Once that marriage is destroyed, (IF it is destroyed), Satan and his demons will consult with the divorce lawyers and try to make each parties focus be about MONEY! And then after the divorce, Satan will send in some NEW people in their lives since God hates remarriage! In fact, the bible says that remarriage is only possible/blessed if one of the spouses had died (or if there’s “adultery”). But today, we see people being married and remarried 3 or more times. Marriage has become such a “cheap institution” and we have Satan and his demons to thank for that! ;(

3. If a person is not married/single, Satan will just keep going down through the list until he can find something that’ll make that person fall. Maybe a person struggles with food, alcohol or drug addiction. Maybe they’re lonely & isolated. Maybe they struggle with the sin of lust (rather in a relationship or not). Or perhaps a person has a strained relationship with a friend, family member, or coworker. Whatever it is, Satan knows our weak spots and he knows where to hit us hard.

4. Once we fall and “get knocked down”, spiritually speaking, Satan and his demons TRY TO KEEP US THERE! And how do they try to keep us there? By making us feel OVERCOME with our feelings of doubt, fear, guilt, shame, lack of faith and fear over all the “sins” in our lives! There seems to be this constant spiritual chorus of “look what YOU did, look what YOU did, Jesus will never forgive you, NOW! You have no hope!” And that’s their way of trying to deceive us and trick us. Because the bible clearly says in Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”.

5. He and his demons are that small, still, subtle voice in our heads that say things like:

  •  “go ahead and buy that snack with trans fat, it’s not gonna effect your heart any”
  • “go ahead and kill yourself….Jesus won’t send you to hell for killing yourself”
  • “go ahead and cheat on your husband/wife (if married) or your boyfriend/girlfriend (if in a relationship), they DESERVE to be cheated on, God understands…really….”
  • “go ahead and relax for awhile….you don’t really NEED to read your bible EVERY single day to have a good spiritual relationship with the Lord, even every FEW days is fine”.
  • **it’s OKAY to be actively GAY and/or to live the GAY Lifestyle and to have/be in a homosexual marriage!**
  • “Muslims and Christians really DO worship the same God”.
  • “you’re fat, you’re ugly, you’re no good, you’re never gonna amount to anything”
  • “your kids HATE YOU”
  • “your _______ HATES YOU” (rather it be your mother, father, grandmother, husband, wife, neighbor, etc.)
  • “Jesus Christ hates you!”
  • “You’re too much of a sinner for Jesus Christ to accept! There’s NO HOPE for you! Jesus Christ will NEVER forgive you!”
  • “your life’s never gonna get better!”
  • “you have REASON to hate this person……they don’t deserve any forgiveness by YOU…so don’t give them the satisfaction of YOUR forgiveness!”
  • “The Rapture is a false doctrine”
  • “The Lord will unleash his wrath on his true church during the Tribulation”
  • “demons don’t exist/Satan doesn’t exist/Jesus Christ/God doesn’t exist”
  • “there IS no such thing as hell”
  • “the lake of fire is not for eternity”
  • “you’ll NEVER be able to overcome your sin/addictions in your life” and MANY, MANY MORE!!!

6. The less of a fight we put up against Satan and his demons, the MORE he’s going to be able to FIGHT US and to infiltrate our mind, hearts, bodies and spirits!

7. The ONLY WAY to defeat Satan and his demons altogether is to:

  • Pray to Jesus Christ
  • Have Faith in Jesus Christ
  • Trust Jesus Christ
  • Wait on Jesus Christ for deliverance

8. But please know this: the harder and harder you try to fight off the Devil and his demons, the harder and harder that he’s gonna try to fight back! While there IS that passage in the bible in James 4:7 which states: Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you“, Satan only flees for a time, not forever.

Sooner or later, he will come back and start running through all the steps again……

“Hhhmm……I can’t break apart her marriage? Okay, lets see if I can make her become overcome with fear and anxiety. I can’t make her full of anxiety? Okay, lets see if I can get her to neglect bible study. I can’t get her to neglect bible study? Okay, I can make her husband cheat on her, etc.” and keeps going on and on and on down the list until he finds SOMETHING to FULL OUT SPIRITUALLY ATTACK a person with!

And then, once he has attacked a person on ONE thing, he will then oftentimes try to then attack a person with MULTIPLE THINGS so he can hold them down and KEEP THEM DOWN for as long as possible. Imagine if the game of Christian life were like a boxing ring. Once Satan has you down, he wants to hold you down for as long as possible. But Jesus is like the referee who won’t LET him hold you down any longer if you cry out to Jesus in fervent prayer & submit yourself to Jesus by not only OBEYING him but by TRUSTING HIM!

9. The spiritual battle is a subtle one, it doesn’t happen all at once. Maybe you don’t feel like reading your bible one day. And then maybe next week, you don’t feel like attending church. And then, the week after that, you don’t even feel like reading or meditating on the bible at all and become much too focused on “secular life”. It all starts out SO SMALL……then eventually leads up to things that are SO BIG…..problems in our lives that would indicate we’re in what the archangel Michael called to me during a partial N.D.E.”THE RED ZONE”. That is the point in our lives where we become SO overwhelmed with our sins and SO overwhelmed by the feelings of fear, guilt, shame, and disbelief, that we feel we are BEYOND HOPE and become MOST ESTRANGED from God/Jesus Christ! And that is THE MOST DANGEROUS place to be (in “THE RED ZONE”).

10. Whenever you feel OVERWHELMED with feelings of doubt, fear, insecurity, lack of faith, shame, guilt, or feel this ever-so-“strange”/”strong” urge to look at NEW AGE MATERIALS (Ouiji boards, Meditation, Yoga, Wicca), please realize that you are under SEVERE DEMONIC ATTACK and that if you actually SUBMIT to these feelings and NOT to Jesus Christ, there’s a chance your soul could be lost for ETERNITY! So please, I beg of you, if you ever find yourself in a situation where you discover you’re under “severe demonic attack”, PRAY TO JESUS CHRIST! IN FERVENT PRAYER, NEVER CEASING! For it is the ONLY WAY by which you will be able to free yourself from Satan’s attacks!

11. Remember that Satan HATES US (all those who’ve washed away our sins with the blood of the lamb, Jesus Christ), and that he will STOP AT NOTHING to OVERTAKE US! But don’t let him win! Put all your faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ, TODAY! And you can be sure! You WILL have a spot in Jesus’s eternal kingdom someday! 😉

“Lord Jesus, the name above all other names, I pray for all the lost souls out there or wayward souls that have strayed from you, lately. Please bring them back to you and bring them to a saving knowledge OF and trust IN you! Please shed light on just HOW Satan’s been at work in their lives, lately and give them the necessary spiritual tools to fight him off, once and for all, in their lives! Please help them to spiritually ENDURE until the end! Please help them have the faith in you that’s SO strong, that even death or the threat of death wouldn’t part them from you! Please give them a renewed strength, faith and hope in YOU! Please shed your light on them always, in this dark and fallen world. And Lord, if they are followers of other religions (particularly of the Catholic, Islam, Mormon, etc. religion), I pray that you work on their hearts and give them a renewed heart and renewed wisdom about the eternal truth that can ONLY be found in YOU! I pray that you bring them (as many as are willing) to the fold and that you bless them and keep them for eternity and that their newfound faith in you will NEVER fail them, no matter what. Amen”.
