In these last days Satan has stepped up his program to generate fear in the hearts of God's people. He knows that "The just shall live by faith" and if he can spread fear of himself, demons, and man he can thereby manipulate Christians contrary to "faith."
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom ..." but "The fear of man bringeth a snare: ..."
One of the most deadly of these teachings is the belief that Christians can be indwelt by demons. He ( Satan) is conducting elaborate displays in order to convince many sincere Christians that this is indeed the case.
Note that there is not a single verse in the entire New Testament to back up this doctrine.
When anyone accepts Jesus as their Saviour they become members of the body of Christ. Can Jesus body be infested with demons? In order to believe that a Christian who is a part of Christ's body is demon possessed you must admit to the unscriptural belief that the true Church, Jesus body, is unclean.
"What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common."
This scripturally unfounded belief has given rise to a generation of exorcists claiming that they hold the key to renewal in the Church. True deliverance is the result of the preaching of the Word of God and lasting freedom from bondage to Satan is based on continuing to believe God by obeying the gospel. " Faith without works is dead." " If ye continue in my word then are ye my disciples indeed and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." Note, no mention about exorcists setting Christians free. Jesus says that,
"THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE ".
Satan is replacing true deliverance with a counterfeit based on misdirected exorcism. Many beguiled Christians are also spreading fear by claiming that witches can effectively place curses on Christians.
( And yet Balaam, a real (but greedy) prophet of God, was not able to do so.)
Note that Balaam taught Balac to seduce the Israelites to sin against God thereby causing them to bring God's judgment upon themselves. The modern Balaams are in the same business and just as greedy. Those who are suppose to be preaching the power of God to save are instead preaching the power of Satan to destroy. This psychological (soulish) warfare creates the fear that Satan and his servants need to spread as part of their method of controlling people.. God's Word says,
"Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear NO evil ...".
(Heb.2:15) tells us that Satan uses the fear of death to hold people in bondage and that Jesus delivers His people from this fear.
Have you accepted His true deliverance? OR Are you still afraid of the devil? Afraid of possession? Afraid of witches and wizards? Afraid of false prophets ? False teachers? Then guess what; they are indeed controlling you, through "fear.".
"Perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."
(Read 1 John 2:5) " Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."
What is holiness, if it's not abiding in love and truth? ( Abiding in Jesus.) Have you really surrendered all to Jesus? Do you live for Jesus or are you still serving that old devil and his selfish lusts? "Submit yourself therefore to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you."
Satan is spreading many lies among Christians.
( Rev.12: 15) "And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood."
He is also teaching that Christians have generational curses on them, contrary to God's Word.
"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature OLD THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY; BEHOLD, ALL THINGS ARE BECOME NEW." (2 Cor. 5:18) "
"Verily, verily, I ( JESUS) say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and SHALL NOT come into CONDEMNATION; but is passed from death into life."
A curse would of course be; "condemnation." Check out the link below
Satan is also teaching that demons have legal rights. Supposedly the Legion of demons that Jesus cast out could not recall any of their legal rights. If this teaching is indeed the case who is going to serve as their lawyer? Satan? I don't think so because he was disbarred many years ago. Jesus? He can't because we retained Him as our advocate. (1 John 2: 1) If we place our faith in lies from Satan; that displaces what God's word actually teaches on the subject and therefore Satan can and does use these "accepted" lies to control and darken our minds and thereby direct us into evil.
" But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." (2 Cor. 11:3)
However, the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us of this sin (of believing the devil's lies) and sets us free.
"They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives unto death."
Another doctrine that Satan is spreading is the pre-trib rapture ( which teaches contrary to scripture that there will be a return of the Lord prior to Jesus own account in Matthew 24.) This false teaching ( along with others) has so weakened the Pentecostal churches that they are sliding into bondage to the "Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the earth". ( The mistress of witchcrafts) ( Daniel 11:32)
("He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity:". . . )Rev. 13:10a
Demon possessed men (EG. Benny Hinn) are now considered among their top ministers. The tares are not the wheat. ( The devil sows tares, not Jesus.) ( Mat. 13: 38 & 39) ( He falsely prophesied that Jesus was going to put in a bodily appearance on his TV program.)
Note. that the bodily appearance of the Lord is what the 2nd advent is. (Read Matt. 24: 23-27)
He is one of many false prophets that the Lord Himself prophesied would come.
The tares are being gathered into bundles to be burnt.(ecumenism) (globalism). This is the Lord's doing. They in their pride think they will create a glorious kingdom (of God?) on earth but in reality are being fashioned into bundles for the fire. Do not fear these false apostles, but rather rebuke them. They operate under the influence of devils and Jesus servants have authority from Him and power over devils. ( Luke 10:19) Use the sword God gave you, His truth, His word. Have NO fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather reprove them.
Many false prophets are now reworking the old Latter Rain doctrines that Satan introduced many years ago. Among them are Paul Cain and the leadership of the Vineyard Churches. They are closely involved with the "Mother of Harlots and Abominations" of the Earth.( One of their prophets was knighted by the Knights of Malta, an exclusive counterpart to the Knights of Columbus.)
The United Nations "Genocide Treaty" signed by the United States makes it a crime to call any religion false. According to the antichrist communist UN all true believers in Jesus Christ are considered criminals. Matthew 24 is being fulfilled and the Lord has indeed destroyed the wisdom of the wise. Daniel 12:10 tells us that
"NONE OF THE WICKED SHALL UNDERSTAND."
The LORD God Almighty is gathering the tares into bundles to burn them. The UN bundle, the Roman Catholic ecumenical bundle, and the New Age bundle. Warn them, but DO NOT have any fellowship with them. The Lord may call upon you to witness to them, but exercise care that you do not compromise the Gospel to gain favor with them. ( Daniel 11:32-34) The Lord Jesus will stand with you, but you must not back down on your testimony for Him. The LORD tells us that He will give us the words to speak when the time comes. Do not fear them for if they do not repent they shall be destroyed by the Lord Himself.
Do not allow Satan to replace your fear of God ( which brings peace and joy and blessing) with the fear of man. ( IE. witches, false prophets, evil rulers etc.)
The devil himself could not touch Job and he cannot touch any obedient child of God unless the Lord allows it for our benefit and glorification. ( This can include persecution by the wicked which in reality is God identifying you with His Son Jesus. ) This may very well be hard on the flesh, but when you stand before Jesus, and receive a crown from His hand that suffering for His sake will look small compared to how Jesus suffered to give unto us eternal life. Our hope is in Jesus, not in the world, our home is with Jesus, it is not of this sin sickened world. Set your affection on things above for,
"Where your treasure is, THERE WILL YOUR HEART BE ALSO.
" By remaining faithful to Jesus during the days ahead, you will rule with Him .( Rev. 20:6 )
The meek shall inherit the earth. Praise God that He in His mercy has called us unto glory.
"Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision."
As for us,
"Be careful for nothing but in ALL things give thanks for this is the WILL OF GOD in CHRIST JESUS concerning you."
Call on Jesus , pour out your heart before Him, let His Holy Spirit fill you, let the blood of Jesus cleanse you from fear and doubt, and so present your body unto Him a living sacrifice. Be ready to give your life in defense of the faith and remember ( ALL things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are called according to His purpose.) Do not allow Satan to rob you of the peace which is in Christ Jesus our LORD. Do not believe in Satan's lies, claiming that he and his servants can snatch you out of God's hand or that hocus pocus works on believers. Let the peace of God rule in your hearts and be ye thankful.
Many will stand before the Lord claiming to have cast out devils in His name but will be rejected of Him as workers of iniquity. Beware of false deliverance ministers for they are servants of Satan and they are misleading many true servants of God. Rebecca Brown (Not her given name.) is a witch spreading pagan superstition which if believed can pull you into a strong delusion. I strongly suggest that you burn all of her books that you possess. Saints of God do not carry guns in their purses nor do they inject themselves with mind-altering drugs. Below I am placing a link to demonbusters.com that contains 2 expose tapes in mp3 format. I suggest you download them and have others listen to them. The tapes contain two testimonies, from two different sources that will convince you that Rebecca Brown and Elaine are both witches. I caution you however on some of the views expressed on this site; they insist that born again believers ( all of whom have the Holy Spirit) can also have demons in them. The Holy Spirit does not co-habit with demons! They also subscribe to the doctrine of returning curses to witches. God's Word says,
"Bless and curse not." and "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." and " Vengeance is mine, I will repay saith the Lord."
Do not try and play God or do the work of the angels of God. This is another trick from Satan. Pray for those who curse you, plead the blood, ask the Lord's protection and rebuke the demons, (In Jesus name) they may send your way. Witches cannot curse believers, but they can try and send demons to trouble you, so just rebuke the spirits in Jesus name. Note: Ask Jesus to run off the evil spirits empowering any witch that is giving you a hard time. They may turn to the Lord when they realize that Satan isn't as powerful as he has deluded them into believing. In any case witches fear losing their occult powers and will back off if they realize that they are at risk of becoming impotent.
" Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you."
( The idea that Christians are supposed to do spiritual warfare according to ways not presented nor taught in scripture leads up to the idea that the Church has power to overthrow Satan's rule in the earth, something that only Jesus will do at His return.) (These beliefs back up Dominionist and Latter Rain philosophy.)
IF GOD'S WORD DOESN'T TELL YOU TO DO IT, DON'T!
If you are practicing rituals or using methods of spiritual warfare not expressly given of the Lord in His Word that means that they must have come from some other source. Take a guess where these new directives are coming from! Are you sure you want to follow his advice! I am sure that the Lord doesn't want any believer obeying Satan. Simply do what the Lord tells you to do in His Word and do not add things because they sound OK. Those who enter into the ministry of deliverance and are not properly grounded in God's Word are soon directed into many foolish pagan superstitions and complex rituals some even writing books on Who's Who in the demon world. These "experts" because of their curiosity about the "deep things of Satan" (occultism) were captivated by a delusion and are themselves in desperate need of deliverance.. You will not find their strange practices or behavior mirrored in the New Testament.
( Learn the truth about Rebecca Brown and Elaine )
REBECCA BROWN & ELAINE - WITCHES!
"When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him."
Other deliverance ministries are guilty of not holding fast to what Jesus teaches on freedom. They having swerved aside are accepting pagan beliefs and practices on the subject.
They are even accepting as truth statements given by demons. Duh!
When the Lord sent out the disciples two by two they weren't sent to cast demons out of each other they were sent to cast demons out of the people. Note also that they did not cast devils out of everybody; real demonic possession is rare and can only affect the unsaved, however these phenomena are increasing along with occultism. Now some having been set free turned in repentance to serve Jesus others went back instead to evil and would have ended up worse off than before.
In both cases the Word of God is shown to be true.
The Holy Spirit directs us as to who He wants us to cast devils out of, it's not our business to prejudge their worthiness nor is the possible outcome an excuse to disobey the Lord. As long as Satan can keep Christians in an illusion casting imaginary demons (not to say that real demons are not present) out of each other they will never direct their efforts to casting demons out of those of the world. Small wonder that Satan is gaining ground, even in the Churches, because Christians are allowing the people to remain in bondage and so they themselves lose out on God's blessings. He will have judgment without mercy that has shown no mercy. Jesus sent us to preach deliverance to the captives. Christians are not obeying God in refusing to preach His Word and cast devils out of the unsaved. As a testimony of the Lord's power over all the works of darkness.
Note that the falling away from the faith precedes the appearance of the man of sin.
Are you abiding in the truth of God's Word or are you being poisoned by witches and wizards posing as God's children. Katherine Kuhlman was a witch that was accepted by many. Do you suppose that the Pope blessed her for serving Jesus? Or could it be that an anti-christ was blessing one of his own servants. Remember the Lord's warning that MANY shall come in His name and shall deceive MANY. The Lord's grace be upon all those who love Him in sincerity and truth.
Your servant in Christ Jesus
