In order to understand why it is wrong for a Christian to celebrate Halloween, we must understand how God feels about the celebration of death and darkness , rebellion, and magic/sorcery. . .

 

1.  ‘But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.’  (Proverbs 8:36)

 

2.  ‘Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD.’  (Jeremiah 28:16)

 

3.   ‘If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:  Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.  And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.’  (Deuteronomy 21:18-21)

 

4.  ‘For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. . . ‘ (1 Samuel 15:23)

 

5.  ‘If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:’  (Psalm 66:18)

 

6.  ‘A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.’  (Leviticus 20:27)

 

7.   ‘Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.’  (Exodus 22:18)

 

8.  ‘Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.’  (Leviticus 19:31)

 

9.  ‘And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.’  (2 Kings 21:6)

 

10.   ’And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the LORD of hosts.  For I am the LORD, I change not . . . ‘  (Malacchi 3:5-6)

 

11.   ‘ . . . Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.  But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation ) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

 

Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?  And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.

 

Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.’  (Acts 13:7-12)

 

12.  ‘The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.’  (Numbers 14:18)

 

13.   ‘Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.’  (Galatians 5:19-21)

 

14.   ‘Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.  Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? . . . ‘  (1 Corinthians 10:21-22)

 

15.   ‘He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil . . . In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.’  (1 John 3:8-10)

 

16.   ‘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)

 

17.   ‘He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.’  (Revelation 21:7-8)

 

18.   ‘And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.  Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.  So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.’  (Acts 19:18-20)

 

19.   ‘Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.’  (3 John 1:11)

 

20.  ‘O worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness: fear before him, all the earth.’  (Psalm 96:9)

 

21.  ‘But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light’  (1 Peter 2:9)

 

22.  ‘For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light’  (Ephesians 5:8)

 

23.   ‘And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.’  (Ephesians 5:11)

 

24.   ‘ . . . what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.’   (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

 

25.   ‘Abstain from all appearance of evil.’  (1 Thessalonians 5:22)

 

26.   ‘And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.’  (Leviticus 20:26)

 

27.   ‘Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation*; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.’  (1 Peter 1:13-16)

*conversation = behavior

 

28.   ‘There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancerFor all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

 

Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.  For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.’  (Deuteronomy 18:10-14)

 

29.   ‘Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.’  (Revelation 22:14-15)

 

30.   ‘And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.’  (Revelation 21:27)

 

31.  ‘I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members* servants to righteousness unto holiness.’  (Romans 6:19)

*members = body parts

 

32.  ‘And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.’  (Ephesians 4:24)

 

33.  ‘For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. . . But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.’  (Romans 6:20, 22-23)

 

34.  ‘For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.  He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.’  (1 Thessalonians 4:7-8)

 

35.  ‘Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord’  (Hebrews 12:14)

 

36.  ‘Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

 

For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:  Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you’  (1 Peter 4:1-4)

 

37.  ‘Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!’  (Isaiah 5:20)

 

38.    ‘For men shall be lovers of their own selves . . . unholy . . . lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.’ (2 Thessalonians 3:2, 4-5)

 

39.   ‘This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me . . . ‘ (Matthew 15:8-9)

 

40.   ‘And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.’  (Revelation 9:20-21)

 

41.  ‘And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. . . she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. . . And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. . . for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.’  (From Revelation 18:1-2, 8, 21,23)

 

From beginning to end, the Bible is clear:  God hates rebellion, and He hates sorcery/witchcraft. He wants His people to be holy, and separate themselves from every thing that defiles.  This sounds simple enough–but Jesus said:

 

‘ . . . strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it.’  (Matt. 7:14)

 

Let me tell you why that is:  because just ‘believing in’ Jesus isn’t enough.  You must OBEY Him too.

 

‘Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that DOETH the will of my Father which is in heaven.’  (Matt. 7:21)

 

‘Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.  But be ye DOERS of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.’  (James 1:21-22)

The Name of God

The Kabbalah, Gematria, and Sacred Geometry are all part of the ‘Mystery Babylon’ occult/hidden knowledge.  The ‘god’ of the occult traditions is Lucifer. So why in the world is the tetragrammaton (YHWH or YHVH) a common symbol in these traditions?  Why is the tetragrammaton spelled out on a Tarot card?  Isn’t this the name of God?  Or, perhaps the question should be . . . what ‘god’s’ name IS this?

Kabbalah is also known a ‘Jewish mysticism’.  It is a Jewish pagan religion, the ‘god’ of which is Lucifer.  Judaism is not, as most Christians suppose, a religion based on a pure adherence to the Old Testament.  No–Judaism is a religion based on rabbinic interpretation of the Old Testament.  This rabbinic interpretation is contained in the Mishnah and the Talmud.  You don’t have to be a genius to read a bit of the Talmud and see it is ‘the Old Testament according to Satan’.

Even in Jesus’ day, this was so.  Jesus didn’t wrangle with, and defy, the Scribes and Pharisees because they were very devout about keeping the Old Testament laws.  No!  They had substituted their OWN (Satanically inspired) teachings and traditions for the Word of God.  (In fact, if you read a bit of the Koran and compare it to the Babylonian (Jewish) Talmud, you will recognize that they have the same author, and say very similar things.)

It seems that Jesus made a deliberate point of repeatedly defying the Pharisees, whenever THEIR laws contradicted HIS law.  He also, PLAINLY, called them ‘The Synagogue of Satan’.  Most people think He was speaking figuratively, but in fact, He was being quite literal.  The Scribes and Pharisees served a different ‘god’:  Lucifer.  Take a little time to explore Jesus’ interactions with the Pharisees, and you will see that the Scripture confirms what I’m saying.

So, back to today . . .

Why the sudden emphasis on returning to our Hebrew roots?  Why the push towards the authority and interpretations of Jewish Rabbis?  Why the insistence on learning the ‘real’ names of God?

We know from the Scriptures, that God is looking for people who will follow Him with all their HEARTS, who will worship Him in SPIRIT and TRUTH.  God discerns the intents of our HEARTS.

On the other hand, you don’t have to look very far into any practice of the occult, to see that it is very precise . . . very ritualistic . . . very dogmatic in exactly WHAT is said and done, WHEN it is said and done, and HOW it is said and done.  This is the very same spirit that I discern is at work behind the ‘Sacred Name’ movement.

If you believe that WHAT we call God is an issue, I would urge you to pray . . . do your own research . . . and let HIM show you what He wants you to call Him.

Here is something really strange I discovered, while looking for a little information on JP Morgan Bank.

A man named Robert Gordon Wasson is a former vice president of JP Morgan Chase.  R. Gordon Wasson is an ethnomycologist–someone who studies how different peoples have used fungi.  His particular interest was in . . . ‘magic mushrooms’  (and the search for Soma–the means to becoming a God?).

(Wikipedia says:  ”  . . .  Wasson views historical mushroom use primarily as a facilitator for the shamanic or spiritual experiences core to these rites and traditions . . . “)

Books attributed to him:

I can’t even speculate as to what connection there is between a banker and a researcher of magic mushrooms.  How extremely strange it seems that one man would be both.

I believe that the (Satanic)  ‘reason’ behind hallucinogenics is to create a gateway for demonic spirits to enter our physical world.

America’s era of hallucinogenic drugs has been a time of greatly increasing spiritual darkness and deception in their proximity.  It also coincides with a great rebellion–one that spawned a generation of radicals (who have now hijacked the White House) and the ‘New Age’ religion (that has hijacked The Church).

When one starts investigating these things, what they find is a very intricate and tightly woven web between the occult, the global political and banking elites, multinational corporations, pharmaceuticals, agricultural giants, eugenics, Hitler, etc.

I’m including this link, for those who are investigating such things.

Is The Transformation To Communism Already Well Underway?

On the one hand, I find it hard to believe that a post such as this would be necessary to write for Christians, but (considering what the Bible tells us about the times we are living in) it appears to be vital, and perhaps a bit late in coming.

Christian–vampires are real! Certainly not as they are so favorably portrayed on television though.  There most certainly are foul, demonic spirits with a bloodlust that go about in search of a human to inhabit, in order to fulfill their lusts!

In fact, a lot of the strange ‘beings’ you see today on TV, and in movies, are actual types of demonic beings that are only visible in the spirit realm.  We are being allowed to ‘see’ them, to desensitize us to them–and to change our attitudes towards them.  (I suspect a day may even come when they will be able to manifest in the physical realm.)  Movies today are even teaching kids that they can ‘train their [own] dragon’!

Trained Dragon

What a misrepresentation!  The whole idea that these beings are subject to us is an absolute lie!  Neither are they ‘just misunderstood’ or harmless to their ‘friends’.  These beings, in reality, are demons–dangerous, deceiving and manipulative.

Dragon

We can debate all day whether it is possible for a Christian to be possessed, or whether a possessed ‘Christian’ ever truly was a Christian, but there are things we may never completely understand, in this life.  The working of the spirit realm are one of those things.  The Bible gives us glimpses into what happens there, but most of it is hidden from us.  (definition of  ‘occult’ = hidden)

I think one of the reasons that people are so drawn to occult is that they fail to understand the nature of life.  In this world, we are mortal.  But this world is only a testing ground, and a place to develop and refine our character.

Most of us wish to be immortal (but is this world really a place where you would wish to be trapped forever?).  Some people will go to great lengths to achieve immortality.  Sadly, they are easily led astray.

Only what is good and righteous will be granted the gift of immortality! This universe has a Creator, and it is His purpose to sift the good from the bad and destroy all wickedness forever.  He is good, and it is His will that what is good and righteous will be with Him for all eternity.  Because He is the Creator, He makes the rules and He gets to choose!!

Now, the sad thing is, all mankind is bad.  The seed of evil(ness) lies within each of us.  I believe it is encoded in the DNA of man.  Each and every human being inherits a physical body, complete with a tiny seed of evil.  God watches to see whether we will feed and nurture that seed of evil, or whether we will fight it.

But, even fighting it is not enough.  Because each of us has that spot of rottenness inside us, we cannot take part in the immortal world that exists beyond this life.  But here is the mystery that God performed: He came to Earth (Jesus) and lived a life of perfection inside a human body.  Then, rather than die a natural death, He arranged that men would put Him to death.  Because He was perfect and completely innocent, He was able to take our sins upon Himself, and suffer in our place, to make a passage into eternity for us.

Make no mistake, this is the only exception God ever has or ever will make for mankind to enter into immortality!

Jesus on Cross

Since Jesus was perfect, and without sin–whose sins did He suffer and die for?  Any of us who is really sorry for the wrong we have done, and who is willing to stop doing wrong!  But, each person has to ask God for their own forgiveness and trust that Jesus died in their place (this is your ‘ticket’).

Then we must live life differently–we must turn away from evil and do good.  We must be obedient to God’s rules for the rest of our life–this protects us from evil.  (Living this new life is what ‘gets you to the airport when it’s time for the plane to leave’.  Many people have accepted the ‘ticket’, but have failed to  ‘be at the airport’ when the plane took off–because they went back to living an evil life.)  If you truly want to be immortal and spend eternity with God, you need to spend your life here with Him too.  There is no immortal life apart from God.

What does any of this have to do with vampires?

Vampire

As most of you are aware, there is a hidden spirit world.  God lives there.  He created the immortal beings that also live there–angels.  But not all angels are good.  One of the chief among them decided He could do a better job than God, and he (the devil/Satan/Lucifer) is in rebellion against God.  Nearly 1/3 of the angels have joined in his rebellion.  (They are now called ‘fallen angels’, ‘demons’, ‘evil spirits’).

From their point of view, they believe Satan is going to win the fight against God.  Therefore, when they make contact with humans, they make you all kinds of promises of what things will be like for you, if you befriend them and join in the rebellion.

Here’s something to remember though–God created Satan.  God and the devil are not equals.  There is no question that Satan will lose his fight against God.

God created a destroyer to nurture evil, and to fight goodness.  This opposition makes goodness stronger, and makes evil visible.  At the time He has planned, God will sift the good from the evil, and will destroy all evil.  This was God’s purpose in creating the role of ‘The Destroyer’.  None of this was a mistake, or a surprise to God.  This is why God allows evil–because it must grow to maturity before the judgment day.

But God is just.  He will avenge and He will repay.  He will make right the things that we suffer here.  Whatever we lose in this short life will be more than repaid in eternity.

Back to vampires and evil spirits . . . the devil is going to be given a short time (3 1/2 years) to be in charge of the whole world.  He will enter into, and possess, a man who will be global leader for 42 months.  During that time, he will try to kill all of God’s people (Christians and Jews).  That day is very close.

These days, there are evil spirits everywhere.  These spirits are telling people a lot of things (some true, some not) and making a lot of promises.

Some of these demonic spirits have fooled people into believing that they are space aliens, a superior race which has come here to teach and help us.

Grey Alien

Reptilian

Others claim to be angels  (technically they arefallen angels), and they promise to lead people into new truth.   Many different groups of demons lead people into the many false religions around the world.  Some lead people into a particular type of wickedness–such as drug abuse, homosexuality, or astrology.  Others seduce people to explore or experiment with evil–demonic music, ouija boards, invoking spirits, watching or reading about witchcraft, sorcery, and vampirism, etc.

Some demons portray themselves as good, loving and compassionate–‘white witchcraft’, nature spirits, male cross dressers, some religious spirits, etc.–while others are very proud of their violence and wickedness.  Some even portray themselves as gods (I suspect these are fallen angels that were given control over a specific geographical location, before they fell).

But they all have one purpose in common: to spread the rebellion against God and destroy His people.  And they all have this in common:  they twist people’s perception of God and teach them to disobey the one true God, in one way or another.

You are going to have to decide if you believe them, and which side you want to be on.

It is important to understand–angels and demons know God’s rules and what the Bible says.  Demons just choose not to believe it anymore.

You also need to know that angels and demons are immortal–but there is no savior for angels that go bad.

Why are these things important to know?  For a number of reasons:

  • Angels don’t make mistakes.  If there is even one thing wrong in what an angel tells a person, that is a deceiving angel–because all angels know the truth.
  • Angels who obey God will only speak to a child of God who is living in obedience . . . WHEN and IF God instructs them to . . . and will only say what God instructs them to say . . . and this VERY rarely happens.
  • Obedient angels who do contact humans are only messengers.  They never draw attention to themself, or allow themself to be worshiped.  They speak only on behalf of God and they give God praise and glory.
  • Obedient angels’ messages always line up with the Bible–the whole Bible message, not just one passage.  They never contradict God or His Word.
  • Obedient angels never tempt people to sin.
  • Angels who follow God don’t disobey Him, because an angel that disobeys will not have a place in God’s kingdom in eternity.
  • Because angels are immortal, even an angel that disobeys God will not die.  Disobedient angels suffer eternal punishment.
  • Obedient angels don’t accidentally disobey God.

Many people, knowingly and unknowingly, are doing things that are enabling more demonic spirits to enter our physical world.

Some of these ways are obvious: seances, taking hallucinogens, staring in the mirror while speaking satanic invocations, etc.

Others may be a little less obvious: tarot readings, palm readings, playing with ouija boards, talking to dead relatives, listening to certain music, using drugs, watching horror movies, watching or reading porn, etc.

Besides those, there are many ways that would be surprising to many people:  hanging out in cemeteries, piercing, tattooing, drinking alcohol, smoking cigarettes, taking prescription meds, having ‘lucky’ objects, calling on luck when playing games, having sex with someone you aren’t married to, etc.Laying Hands On

And there are some that would be very surprising even to Christians:  having hands laid on you, or being prayed over (even in church), by someone who has demons or is demonically influenced.

Some of these things are spiritually dangerous, no matter what your mindset. You would need to be fasting and praying in order not to be overtaken by them.  Others are dangerous if approached with an emptiness, a desire, an expectation, or an openness that you long to have filled.  (In other words, if your ‘defenses are down’, you will be susceptible.)

The Bible warns against all these things.  If you read the Bible, you should not be surprised that these things are ‘wrong’ or dangerous.  God makes rules to protect you–because He knows what you don’t:  how things work in the spirit realm!

Any kind of rebellion is an open door, and an invitation, to rebellious demonic spirits.  But there are some spiritually dangerous things that seem less obvious.  (They should be obvious, but because of being around them so much, many of us have become desensitized to them.)

So, last but not least, one that will probably surprise everyone:  watching television!

Television, as we know it in America, is in a class by itself.  It puts us into a very receptive, trance-like or hypnotic state while we watch.  In this way, it is able to bypass our objective mind and implant its messages (both verbal and nonverbal) directly into our subconscious.

Watching TV

Most people have some understanding that this happens, in regard to convincing us to buy different products, etc.  But I think very few people see how television molds and shapes the collective conscious of our nation.

The American consciousness (way of thinking/belief system/paradigm/virtual reality) is outwardly manifest in our ‘culture’, but it is first created in our minds through television.  This virtual reality is a composite of the messages that are promoted through television.

It is highly unlikely that the people that create television programs, or television networks, have much awareness of what they are doing–although many of these men are unquestionably demonically influenced.  Such a level of sophistication, deception, and evil intent is required to create this alternate reality, that I am certain it is the mastermind of very powerful demonic entities.  It is a very intentional form of thought and behavior control that is being created and controlled from the darkest spiritual realms.

It is ironic, that the nation which possesses the most truth and the most religious freedom, also has the most scoffers–and ‘Christian’ scoffers (‘Christians’ who don’t believe in the spirit realm) are the worst!!  Truly we have a ‘form of godliness, but deny its power’!

When the truth is taken to  other parts of the world–to ‘unsophisticated’ and ‘backwards’ people, to ‘third world’ nations, they receive it with joy!  They are very aware of the nature of demonic influence around them, and seek to be freed.  But, in America, such things are denied!

Who, from one of these places, if brought to America, would fail to discern the tremendous number of demonic beings here?  Who would not see the myriad ways in which we openly welcome demonic spirits into our lives?

Who would fail to see the obvious danger of television, and how it is being effectively used by the devil to corrupt an entire nation?  Who would not be amazed that we sit (with our little children) in front of this demonic teacher, and absorb the teachings and subtle propaganda from hell that it spews?

Christian: there is little hope that you will have spiritual discernment if you don’t turn off your television!  The devil’s power and ability to deceive is far greater than the level of wisdom and discernment that most of us have!  How much more so, when it is done subliminally!!

Jesus said that few would find the way (to truth and eternal  life).  It is a certainty that if you really want to find God, most of the time you are going to stand apart from other people!  You cannot conform yourself to the crowd and live in truth!  If you can’t stand to not ‘fit in’, you aren’t going to be able to stand for God.

If you want to stand for God–before anything else, you have to make up your mind that it is ok not to fit in!

Until standing for God is more important to you than standing with the crowd, any correction given to you is just a waste of time.  All teaching, all truth, will be totally lost on you.  You will accept a lie–even an ugly, wicked, obvious lie–before you will accept the truth.

The themes that Satan is promoting in America, through television, are becoming more evil, and more blatant, every day.  In fact, if you are following something that is popular in movies and books, and on TV, it is a virtual certainty that it is propaganda from hell in the rebellion against God.

Christian–wake up!  Think about it:  Satan is consolidating the mindset of the world, to accept evil and to rebel against God.  Have you been so blinded that you have to wonder whether or not it is ok to read Harry Potter books?  to watch Twilight and True Blood?  to be getting tattooed and pierced?  to smoke?  to be ‘hooking up’?

Television has so desensitized Americans to evil and danger that we walk around with a fearless mentality–as though evil isn’t real, or we are somehow above it.   Yet, at the same time, many American ‘Christians’ have opened so many doors to demons that their own bodies have become habitations for every sort of foul spirit!  No wonder they can’t discern when evil spirits infiltrate their churches–they are already living in  harmony with them every day!!

It is time to wake up, and be afraid!!  Some things are not meant to be toyed with!  While it is true, that believers who are living righteously have power over the enemy, it is not true that we can live carelessly and nothing can touch us!

You may not need to fear being seized by some violent evil spirit that will cause you to jump off a cliff–but you certainly need to be very aware that you can easily be seduced into opening yourself to a deceiving spirit, by partaking of things that you shouldn’t.

Deceiving spirits can be hard to detect.  They affect your mind, twist your understanding of truth, and distort your perception of God. They burrow deep into your heart and mind, looking for seeds of unbelief and rebellion that they can cultivate.  Then they lead you away from God, and into sin.  They can work very slowly, and it may take decades to see the fruit of their work in your heart.  You may even continue to ‘do great things for God’ outwardly, while your heart is being drawn away from Him.  But, if you live long enough, one day it will become apparent that the fruit you produce, that looks so beautiful on the outside, is full of rottenness and worms on the inside.

One last thing you need to know: demons multiply!  Once a demon has taken up residence inside you, others will join it.  Wise people know this principle and will warn you against many things that may seem trivial.  It is easy to laugh them off, but think about it:  if some activities, that seem safe enough, can provide entry points for demons . . . and if demons ‘multiply’, once they have taken up residence . . . is there really any way to be sure how many and what kind of demons you may eventually have inside, if you carelessly allow the first one in?

When spirits move in, you become ‘possessed’; you are ‘taken captive’, ‘in bondage’–no longer in control! Does this still sound like fun?

Jared Lee Loughner

How do you know that you won’t end up with ‘multiple personalities’?  or a schizophrenic spirit? an epileptic spirit? a homosexual spirit? a ‘serial killer’ spirit?  a pedophile spirit? an alcoholic spirit?  a suicidal spirit?  Yes, any of those could enter in–and you don’t get to pick!

If you are playing with these things today, there’s a good chance you’ll later end up in jail, a mental institution, or the morgue!  Go ahead and laugh, but remember this: once evil spirits move in, your spirit is merely in the way . . .

Are you afraid of plots by the elite, to brainwash you?  Plots like the Blue Beam Project?  Afraid you might be a target for a microchip in your brain?  Perhaps these plots serve best to inflate our fears and direct our attentions elsewhere.  While we are worrying about the horrifying, and the extreme, do we even notice that what we fear has already subtly crept into our reality, in the form of something small and harmless?

Watching TV

We have all been bewitched.  Whether we realize it or not, we live in an alternate reality.  Our opinions, our values, our emotions, our desires, and our dreams have all been carefully crafted and fed to us.  It has been done so effectively that we would all vehemently deny it!  Yet, how many of us have not watched movies, listened to the radio, played video games, or watched television for several hours a day . . . nearly every day . . . of every year . . . of almost our entire life?

The voices all blend into one.  We repeatedly get the same messages, albeit from different vantage points, through the eyes of different characters, in the context of different situations.  Bit by bit we are molded and shaped.

It is no mistake that our culture has descended into an abyss of perversion, corruption, greed and violence.  If you follow the short history of television, you will see that the time line of our societal decay is enveloped in the same time frame.  It is beyond argument that the substance of television programming has undergone the same degeneration as our morals.

It is argued that art mirrors reality, but in the case of this form of ‘art’, I would beg to differ.  Our culture has closely followed our entertainment media, right down the drain.  There may be a speck of truth to the argument–yes, someone, somewhere may have done what is portrayed, but after it becomes ‘art’  many people feel tempted and emboldened to do it themselves.  And for every one that does it many others, who don’t, feel an empathy with those who do.

How many of those who are terrified, at the thought of the ‘elite’ coming up with a way to brainwash the masses, are still tuning in to their favorite shows, night after night?

Sure, we know the difference between truth and fiction, fantasy and reality–or do we?  Not everything we experience is filtered by our conscious and logic.  Our subconscious absorbs far more than we are aware of, and treats it all as though it were real.

Great swells of emotion-stirring music accompany us as we vicariously experience what the character is living.  The strong emotions it evinces serve to further embed the message and anchor it in our memories.  By the end of a three hour movie, our hearts are full of anger and vengeance–or lust and temptation–fodder to chew on later, as memories of the movie rise to the surface of our consciousness from time to time.  Those pictures and feelings we just can’t get out of our mind . . . and with them, the emotion inspired justifications for things that we knew were wrong, just a few  hours earlier.

Prerecorded applause and laughter punctuate the storyline at the appropriate times while we watch situational comedies.  The story lines are designed to stretch our tolerance as the envelope of decency and morality is pushed farther and farther.  The laughter and clapping follow jokes that are increasingly coarse and deviant, and give us the illusion of being surrounded by others who are all in agreement.  No one wants to stand alone, so we push our objections aside and laugh too.

In this fantasy world, we are one with the crowd.  Christian or not, we can set our morals aside and pretend we really live in this alternate reality–a world without God, without rules, without judgment, without remorse, where we determine what is right and wrong.  And of course, later, we’ll come back to the real world.  But, like an agent too deep undercover, eventually we don’t.  Eventually this pleasurable world, where we spend so much time, supplants reality.  Eventually its tentacles have wrapped so firmly around our heart and mind that we cannot free ourselves–indeed, we can’t even discern that we have become thoroughly ensnared.

Surely Jesus saw our day, when he explained that we would be judged by the content of our hearts.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Do not commit adultery.’  But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Matthew 5: 27-28

I would argue that we are judged for how we respond to fantasy as well as for how we respond in real life.  Because–it is our heart that will be judged, not merely our actions.

Consider the rest of the passage:

“If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.
And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.” Matthew 5: 29-30

What you feed your mind eventually becomes a part of you.  I grew up in the television age and I can see the change in myself, over the years, from continuing to partake of ‘American entertainment’, even as a Christian.  Now, after more than six months of not watching television, it is easier to observe how it works, when I do see it.

” . . . By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.”
Revelation 18: 23

Don’t think you’re being brainwashed?  Too proud to believe that you are being molded and shaped?  Don’t think it could happen to you?  It probably already has.  Your denial serves to confirm it.
