Have you noticed a strong force of evil taking over Earth? Beware…this is why! Strongholds are battles within themselves. It’s a battle within a battle. It can take place within yourself, and then around you as well. Wickedness in high places are the elite who worship Satan. And the Principalities are the fallen angels/demons who rule over them. We must understand how the spiritual world works in order to battle it. Don’t believe Satan’s lies when he tells you that learning these things is evil…that just makes his work easier!
The phrase spiritual wickedness in high places refers to Satan and his demonic horde who inhabit the spiritual realm. This is a world unseen by us that exists in our midst. These spirit beings are not friendly toward us and will use every opportunity they can find to torment us. Sometimes they plant lies in our minds that contradict the truth we learn from GOD. Paul said we have divine weapons to take these thoughts captive and make them obedient to Jesus Christ.
Strategies Of Satan: Spiritual Wickedness In High Places
Through “spiritual wickedness in high places” Satan aims for the total allegiance of man.
Satan Has His Own Church: Synagogue of Satan
GOD established the true church which is known as the “Body of Christ” of which Jesus Christ is the head: Now ye are the Body of Christ, and members in particular… (I Cor. 12:27)
The difference between deliverance and spiritual warfare is that deliverance is dealing with demonic bondages, and setting a person free.
Whereas, spiritual warfare is resisting, overcoming, and defeating the enemy’s lies (deception, temptations, accusations) that is sent our way.
Deliverance involves the breaking up of legal grounds, the tearing down of strongholds (offensive spiritual warfare), and the casting out of demons.
Spiritual warfare on the other hand, is dealing with three key things the enemy sends at us: temptations, deception and accusations.
Defensive warfare is guarding yourself against the tactics or schemes of the devil.
Spiritual warfare comes in two ways: offensive and defensive. Offensive warfare is tearing down the strongholds the enemy has formed in your mind through deception and accusations.
Strongholds are based on lies from the devil. They can come in the form of deception or accusations.
In part one, we discussed the war which is raging all around us and the players within it. We are part of this war…we are an important part of this war to GOD. GOD loves us deeply. So, we are given weapons to war against the dark side. These are opposite of the kinds of weapons which the fallen angels gave us…which teach us to war against one another instead of the darkness.
In part two, we touched on some of the manifestations which one might see if a demon is harassing someone.
Part three, we shall see some valuable armor pieces used to battle the evil around us.
Basics in the “ARMOR OF GOD”
Paul addresses the Armor of GOD in Ephesians 6, where he talks about ‘putting on’ the armor. But what does this mean? Is it a physical or spiritual armor? It’s both. Following Isaiah’s lead (Isa 59), Paul drew a powerful comparison between a soldier’s armor and the spiritual armor of GOD.
The Bible describes unseen spiritual battles, with the titanic battle in the end of age. Satan and his demons are invisible, and they master in camouflaging not only themselves, but their techniques.
Stand therefore having girded your waist with truth…
When a soldier wore his belt, it signifies that he was ready for battle, since he only loosened it when he went off duty. The belt—known as the cingulum or balteus—held the Roman soldier’s scabbard and sword. The belt provided a place to house the sword and carry it into battle effectively.
Truth is to surround us…like a belt. The belt is the first piece of armor. It secures all other pieces in place so it protects us against all of Satan’s lies and deceptions. The idea of absolute truth is inseparable from the life of Jesus Christ, and from The Bible. Jesus Christ defined Himself as “the way, the truth, and the life”! The truth shall set you free.
We must be completely honest with ourselves! And knowing GOD’S Truth which is The Word of GOD is very important for peace of mind.
Having put on the breastplate of righteousness…
Soldiers of that time had another piece of protective armor to ward off enemy blows—the shield. But during the heat of battle, those blows could come from unexpected directions, or there could be too many to ward off with just a shield. The breastplate provided protection against the unexpected and against overwhelming numbers.
The breastplate worn by Roman soldiers was generally made of iron, though some wealthier soldiers may have worn a bronze breastplate. It consisted of overlapping pieces of metal with connecting front and back sections. There were rounded pieces protecting the shoulders and the breastplate usually rested on the soldier’s hips so the entire weight wasn’t carried on the shoulders. The overlapping pieces allowed for more flexibility of movement. This piece of armor protected the vital organs of the soldier during battle.
Paul was very decisive about our righteousness because he knew it opened the door to attacks. Doing what is right in the eyes of GOD is to obey GOD’S laws of love.
And having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace…
During the time of the apostle Paul, the shoes worn by the soldiers of the Roman Empire were called caligae. They were specifically designed to keep soldiers’ feet healthy during the rigors of long forced marches and were very different from the sandals worn by most of the populace.
The shoes were constructed from three layers of leather, which were pulled up and laced around the ankle. The caligae helped protect against blisters and foot diseases. In addition, small spikes or iron hobnails were often driven into the soles of the shoes in order to give firm footing on uneven terrain.
A soldier’s shoes formed the foundation of his armament. In those days, the foot soldiers of the empire relied on walking as their primary means of transportation, so the ability to move easily and comfortably was a necessity for them. In addition, they needed to be able to step about in battle without thinking about where they placed their feet. They needed solid footing in order to concentrate on the battle at hand.
All metaphoric for preaching upon a firm foundation.
SHIELD OF FAITH
Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one…
The Roman shield, or scutum, was a central part of the soldier’s defense. The scutum was rectangular in shape and rounded on the ends. It was typically made from two sheets of wood that were glued together, then covered with canvas and leather. The canvas and leather could be doused with water to protect against flaming arrows.
The shield weighed about 22 pounds and was roughly 37 to 42 inches high and 27 to 33 inches across. A metal piece ran across the center of the shield, so it could also be used as a weapon to punch or push forward.
When our relationship with GOD is strong, our faith is powerful. Without this Satan is able to create strongholds.
And take the helmet of salvation…
When a soldier of the apostle Paul’s day suited up for battle, the helmet was the last piece of the armament to be put in place. In fact, without the helmet, a soldier would be so vulnerable that the rest of the armor would be of little use. Paul’s statement “take the helmet of salvation” is the shortest description given to any of the pieces of armor—it required almost no explanation in terms of its value.
The Roman helmet, known as a galea, could vary quite a bit in design, since mass manufacturing didn’t exist at that time and each helmet was created individually. There was also some variation in the helmet design over time during the life of the empire. Usually the helmets were made of metal, though poorer soldiers or soldiers from the early days of the empire may have had leather helmets fortified with pieces of metal.
The most obvious value of the helmet was to protect against blows to the head.
Helmets usually had cheek plates to guard against blows to the face, and a metal piece in the back to protect against blows to the back of the neck. In addition, during the early first century the helmets began to include a brow ridge to provide protection for the eyes.
Every action begins with thought, and our thoughts need to be centered in line with GOD’S Word and commandments. To be in the right mind, gives us peace of mind knowing that GOD will deliver HIS promises.
Our salvation is of tremendous value! Jesus Christ gave His life so that we may be able to have it. This is an incredible sacrifice given to us. This salvation gives us hope which protects our minds from the discouragement and despair of the world around us.
SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
The sword of the spirit, which is the word of God…
The first five elements of the Christian armor are defensive pieces—armament the Christian can use to defend against spiritual attack. Why would an offensive weapon be listed with the other pieces of armor? What use should a Christian make of it?
The sword used by Roman soldiers was known as a gladius; and in the hands of a skilled man, it was a fearsome weapon. In fact, it became known as “the sword that conquered the world.” It was sharpened on both sides, making it lethal against an unarmored foe. The point was also sharpened, enabling it to pierce armor.
An infantryman in the Roman legions would also go into battle with a dagger, a few spears and possibly a few darts. But the gladius was the only offensive weapon listed by Paul, and it was the main weapon in the soldier’s arsenal.
Paul defines the sword of the Spirit as the “word of God” (Ephesians 6:17). This isn’t the only place where God’s Word (the Bible) is described as a sword. The author of Hebrews also makes reference to it: “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:12-13).
The Word of God is even sharper than the gladius! It is capable of piercing to the deepest levels of one’s heart and attitude, and it is also a tool of discernment in the hands of the skilled user.
This is our only offensive weapon. The sword won’t stay sharp because over time it becomes dull. This is metaphorical for the fact that The Word of GOD is something we must continually sharpen by regular and focused Bible study.
Hebrews 4:12 explains: “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
THE POWER OF PRAYER
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit…
It’s important to note that Paul ends with this as an encouragement to us to pray fervently. We are to pray for ourselves and others, and for the work of the mission to spread the gospel.
The Bible and prayer are the most powerful of all tools given to us for combating Satan’s weapons.
So, in the first entry we saw how Satan has set up the Five “I Wills”…but we need to learn ‘how’ this is being enforced.
Evil forces influence and control the minds of individuals, change their behavior, thus stopping their ability to function, and could even cause suicide. Sounds a bit drastic…don’t you think? Well, it is!
Actually that’s their ultimate goal. They hate us, and it only makes sense that this is why they taught us war, so we would kill one another…essentially doing their work for them.
As a teacher, it is my objective to give the necessary information which will allow you to use the tools. But, I must warn you that once you peer into the dark side, it looks back.
You see…you’re not a threat until you become a child of GOD and begin to learn these things. Then you become the teacher and your family and friends…the student.
But, this allows everyone you know and care about to potentially become a target/victim. They want to slow your progress by attacking your loved ones, in return slowing the process of the knowledge you obtain.
So, are you ready? Be very sure…because once you begin, you must stand your ground.
Satan has attacked GOD and set up a false government…a counterfeit hierarchy. He has affected what GOD created…us; He is affecting The Word of GOD; and he has affected GOD’S character. This allows doubt to sneak into the world. Bringing forth false religions with disgusting doctrines allow Satan to teach man that he does not need GOD. This is even affecting GOD’S very own children because it’s ensnaring and tempting them. It’s pulling the wool over their eyes. Hence, wolves in sheep’s clothing is a perfect example. Pastors who seemingly work for GOD but instead use every evil indignation to arouse mankind into his trap. I liken this to a pastor who seeks familiar spirits for knowledge and convinces his congregation that it’s communication from GOD.
The two sides of course are basically the good and bad. Simple as that, but so much more diverse that many comprehend.
Demons are angelic beings, though fallen, are spiritual beings. They are frequently called evil spirits. They can be visible, and invisible. Audible, and in your face! Generally, they are invisible but can make your life a living hell…until you learn to battle against them.
Demons can and will try to influence your thoughts, and therefore your decisions which in turn changes your behavior. In doing so, they can actually take over your very being…only to exist through you. Although you are a Believer in GOD, your body and mind can be inhabited. We have three (Holy Temple has three sides-body/mind/soul) sources of struggle within us. They want to take over all three! It begins with inhabiting a human by one or more demons who exercise various degrees of control with the resultant physical, psychological, and spiritual manifestations. (C. Fred Dickason, Angels: Elect & Evil, Chapter 20, Moody Press, 1995 Edition, p.198).
So, we see that the progression begins on the outside (influencing thoughts) with the person being possessed (controlled within).
First…let’s get this straight! Those who believe that a demon spirit cannot invade the life of a believer can and eventually will be harassed by persistent sin. Beginning as a “squatter” only to end as an intruder! A robber of souls.
The evidence is all around us. It lends itself every source of media…and is exponentially increasing. Although all events are not publicized, it’s happening on a worldwide scale such as never witnessed before….
The paths of the wicked is a common denominator in peoples actions but also though deceptions such as UFO (demons) encounters, apparitions of “Mary”…etc.
Satan is capable of producing audible, mental, and bodily phenomena in order to create illusions which are covered in a veil of darkness.
The very nature of a believer’s salvation is in check…and Satan wants nothing more than to place us in checkmate!
The Characteristics of Demon Possession
a) In the Middle Ages, a period of superstition and ignorance, a list of symptoms were established to confirm demonic possession.
(1) The ability to curse/blaspheme in languages unknown to the person.
(2) The ability to find secret things, read the mind, and divine future happenings.
(3) The ability to make physical efforts abnormal for that person.
(4) The act of spitting or vomiting every object the demons would have made the person swallow.
(5) Fear and/or hatred of holy objects.
(6) The inability to say the word “Christ.” (Wikipedia, Demonic Possession)
(7) Other characteristics noted by people at that time:
(a) …that oppressed persons had an ugly and terrible aspect, wrathful eyes, bluish lips, foam coming off their mouth; their body was almost permanently shaking, when they spoke their tongue came abnormally out, their speech consisted mainly in curses and blasphemies, and they were able to imitate animal sounds as well as to speak with human-like voices with a strange sound and a different pitch of theirs. However, these symptoms as described are not always in accordance with scripture.
b) Listed below are the various expressions of demon possession in Scripture. We should not jump to the conclusion that isolated symptoms equate to demon possession. Characteristics of Demon Possession in Scripture are:
(1) Convulsions (Mar 1:26; 5:4; 9:20-26; Luke 4:35; 9:42)
(2) Falling (Mat 17:15)
(3) Stretched and disjointed body movements (Mar 9:18)
(4) Deformity (Luke 13:11)
(5) Foaming at the mouth (Mar 9:18, 20; Luke 9:39)
(6) Shrieking and screaming (Mar 1:26; 5:5; 9:26; Act 8:7)
(7) Demons speaking (Mar 1:34; 3:11; 8:31; Luke 4:41; 8:28; Act 16:17; 19:15)
(8) Deaf (Mar 9:25-26; Luke 11:14)
(9) Mute (Mar 9:25, 32-33; Luke 11:14)
(10) Blindness (Mat 12:22)
(11) Super-human strength (Mar 5:4; Luke 8:29; Act 19:16)
(12) Self-destruction (Mar 5:4, 5; Luke 9:39)
(13) Violence (Mat 8:28; Mar 5:4; Act 19:16)
(14) Isolation (Luke 8:29)
(15) Lunacy (Mat 17:15; Mar 5:15; Luke 8:35; John 10:20)
(16) Nakedness (Mar 5:15; Luke 8:27; Act 19:16)
(17) Divination (Act 16:16)
(18) Leave and return (Mat 12:45)
(19) Reluctance to leave (Mat 17:16)
(20) Multiple demons (Mat 12:45; Mar 5:15; Luke 8:30)
Now that you see some of the manifestations of evil…how do we counteract these moves?
Chess is a highly intelligent game where the objective is to attack and capture your opponent’s pieces, while supporting your own.
It doesn’t surprise me that this game was invented in India. India is Satan’s greatest achievement of masterful moves. He began the (smooth as silk) attack on the monothesistic philosophy of One GOD. But, at the same time creates the belief that we are all “ONE”….crazy, right?
Chess is played on a square board with “light” and “dark” squares. And if you research its origin you will find a picture of the Knights of Templar playing the game…talk about ironic.
So, Satan works with chess moves….slowly gaining status with small incremental moves as to not be noticed. The end game results in his being enthroned. He’s the master of an elaborate combination of moves in the sequence of attacks and brazen sacrifices. Don’t think for one split second that he doesn’t know GOD is in control but he just doesn’t want you to believe that.
3 Stages of Deliverance
One; repent. Two; renounce. Three; restore.
Repenting of our sin is hard. Pride controls the flesh in every manner possible. Accepting Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and understanding that Only Jesus Christ can lead you to GOD.
Renouncing your sins with prayer and fasting. Renouncing your actions which lead to your sins. Renouncing any and all involvement with the dark forces.
Restore your life by deliverance by removing any and all cursed objects, idols, and connections to evil.
3 Stages of Repentance
One; recognize your guilt. Two; trust that GOD will forgive you. Three; turn from sin, to GOD.
Recognizing that you have sinned and this is what allowed these events to transpire.
Trusting that GOD has forgiven you of all of your sins. Controlling the temptations in your life which could lead to future/more transgressions/sin.
Turning from sin to GOD. Trusting in GOD to have complete authority over everything in your life.
3 Stages of Renouncement
One; omission. Two; turn away. Three; release.
Accepting you sinned.
Turn from your sin.
Release the legal rights.
3 Stages of Restoration
One; complete admission. Two; restore communications. Three; continue in authority.
Completely admitting GOD is in control and giving HIM the control over your life.
Restore your communication with Jesus Christ, The Only Son of GOD. Accepting Him as your Savior, understanding that He is The Only Path to GOD.
Continuing in the authority which Jesus Christ gave us in relation to demons and their activity. Retaining a higher level of faith by fasting and prayer.
The Two Sides
Every time I put out a series of articles such as this, I’m reminded of just how much people are suffering. I have a parallel site where I publish articles like this to help those in need but The Holy Spirit compelled me to put this here. And for those mockers, and non-believers…grin and bare it! Why do I say that? Because Satan hates this kind of work to get out there…it makes his job that much harder. Oh, and for those who don’t believe he exists…he’s a master-manipulator and the king of lies.
Oh, by the way…I have a present for you! LINK
The light and the dark, the white and the black….the good and the evil.
Now…on with the important message!
You see, or wait…maybe you don’t see! OR more to the point, you can’t see it don’t want to see…right?
GOD gave us duality and Satan twists it for his pleasure. He thinks that this endeavor will ultimately allow him to reign in both dimensions…or should I say realms.
Sadly, Satan has convinced many that he doesn’t exist. Sure makes his work easier! Satan decided he could become a god…and he taught other angels the same.
When the angels decided to war against GOD, they made a choice. This choice will determine their fate and they do their best to pull us into the dark side with them.
When they first came to earth, they brought many wicked things to mankind. One of these being weapons and mankind learned to war against one another instead of against the dark side. Simply put…when you’re consumed with fighting one another, you don’t have time or the energy to battle against them. And this is what we’ve been doing ever since!
Thousands of years have taught us to hate one another, but GOD told Jesus Christ to teach us to love one another. Thank you, GOD!
To help us, GOD does not want us to be helpless, so HE sent HIS Merciful Son, Jesus Christ.
And instead of warring against one another, GOD gave us HIS Word so we could be taught warfare against the dark forces.
In The Word, we are shown spiritual warfare. We are given spiritual weapons to use. We were never meant to fight one another…we are meant to teach one another the methods and doctrines of The Holy Word of GOD.
The first thing we need to know is the fallen want nothing more than to change these doctrines. This is being accomplished on a worldwide scale such as never witnessed before. Changing The Word by replacing or deleting words…of course changes the meaning entirely. So, this essentially the meaning and the power to defeat them! Don’t doubt for one second that this is a primary goal for them.
SATAN’S DESIRES-Satan’s pride influences his every step. Isaiah (Isa 14:12-14) reveals the best example of this with Satan’s Five “I Wills”…
Let’s explore these in order to understand the whole agenda which Satan has implemented over GOD’S creations.
Satan desires the divinity of GOD
The desire to ascend into the status of GOD will never be completed by Satan. He began his work with the other angels around him, directing their thoughts and actions by causing them to fall with him. Then, he set his eyes on Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Convincing man that he can become a god/god-like status is the same procedure he utilized over the fallen angels. Thus, we see his behavior has not only effected them but us. By the way, this continues to this very day. How, you ask? By organized religion. Many churches have incorporated this doctrine into their theology.
Satan desires dominion over GOD
Satan desires to rise above the stars of GOD. What does this mean? He wants to control all of the angels….good and bad. The stars are GOD’S angels. So, Satan wants dominion over the entire angelic realm.
Satan desires the domain of GOD
Satan wants to be enthroned on the mount of assembly on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. This means he wants to sit on the very spot where Jesus Christ does. Satan wants all religions to become one, thus taking leadership over it, on Earth. This is inclusive of having influence over all nations and its leaders.
Secular decisions can and do effect spiritual realms. In order to control the ‘world’…meaning temporal influences which denotes “FLESH” type sins. GOD created us with flesh which is susceptible to the sins of the world. In order to tempt you with these sins, Satan must make them desirable….very desirable. Example: …we see this taking place with the gender agenda….i.e., sexual promiscuity.
Satan desires the dignity of GOD
Satan tells us he wants to ascend over the tops of the clouds. This speaks of Earth in general and its religions. He wants to receive all the glory and worship due GOD. The reality is that whatever glory GOD gave Satan in the higher realms…he lost. Sure, he retained his appearance and even his powers but he lost his status in the higher heavens. He wants this back, and more.
Satan desires the depiction of GOD
But, you see this is not just in our lower atmospheres…he is speaking in terms of all creation. All the heavens…and once there he will insist upon being worshiped. Satan wants to be ‘above’ all others. His strategy is to counterfeit everything of GOD to confuse the world. He shows himself as an ‘angel of light’ but he’s not of the Light anymore. He’s a counterfeiter! A fake. A thief.
Satan directly attacks the believer by hindering the spread of The Word of GOD, accusing believers and devouring the believer’s testimony. This is why we see so many websites being attacked, up to and including mine. This is a far stretch but consider this: the tragedy which took place in Florida recently…
Considered the ‘worst attack since 911’…where a person, Omar Mateen, called 911 during the attack of a packed gay nightclub called, PULSE CLUB to pledge his allegiance to ISIS. But, Satan is slick…watch this!
Satan has the pulse of the nation in his hands! The media have turned this into an attack on Christians.
ACLU attorney, Chase Strangio, blames Christians for the shooting massacre.
Do you see?
The goddess, Isis (Ishtar) in mythology was the deity who represented life/resurrection, rising from the dead! She is the goddess of the Illuminati. She is perfectly portrayed as a depiction of liberty. The “Statue of Liberty”….blind justice! The lack of justice in the world is a constant. Isis is considered to be the goddess of enchantment and magic. And magically we are losing our liberties! Do you see the connections? It’s ironic, really. Because most people don’t see!
The powers that be (Illuminati) are controlling the world by symbolic sacrifices to their gods, the fallen angels. They create false flag events in order to produce blood sacrifices and at the same time use the cogs in the wheel to advance their agenda…the New World Order.
In Matthew, it discusses some very interesting events…and The Holy Spirit pointed something out to me today…
I will be writing one article and GOD reveals truths for another! It’s amazing!!
Jesus Christ went out and departed from the temple…and then the disciples came and wanted to point some things out about it…but Jesus Christ wanted them to see what was to come.
Jesus Christ foretold of the temple being scattered and not one stone upon another. What an amazing vision…scary, right?
I know The Bible speaks on dual levels…and some will object to this but I’ve had GOD show me these parallels too many times to know it’s true.
Prophecy of the future is connected to the past. Jesus Christ will reveal an event and then give you signs of what will parallel this in the future…do you see this too?
How does the destruction of the temple relate to signs of the end? And how about the abomination of desolation?
We can look around the world right this minute and see these things which Jesus Christ describes within this chapter, except for these two things…what is your thoughts?
It was a shocker to me…I had thought it before but GOD never revealed it in this manner before.
What does The Bible tell us?
The temple in Jerusalem was shattered into pieces! Jesus Christ did just as He said He would…
1 Corinthian 3 (KJV)
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
Let’s go backward for a minute…
In the earlier passages, it tells us that GOD wants to speak to us in the supernatural but because of our flesh, HE cannot. So, HE tells us HE fed us with milk…and no meat. But, man can receive reward according to his own labour.
We are considered labourers with GOD, and we are GOD’S building. GOD laid the foundation…and HE tells us that every man should take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
Why would HE give us such advanced instructions if we are just carnal? Is it a warning? I believe so.
To build onto what GOD created us to be? But, we are already made in HIS Image, what could be the next step without ascending with GOD?
Mankind got their greed, and pride from Satan…no doubt about it. And he’s been whispering in our ears for thousands of years about how we can be more…how we can become like GOD. No, even one step further, how we can be a god (Genesis 3:5).
In Ezekiel, it’s the end! GOD speaks of abominations…
Ezekiel 7 (KJV)
I firmly believe the “strangers” are the Fallen Angels and their descendants and other demon spirits. They are teaching mankind to rise above GOD. In turn this raises Satan above GOD (in theory)…this is familiar in Isaiah when Satan tells us he will complete the 5 “I Wills”.
Defiling our image is the “secret place”! Robbers entering into it? This speaks of our DNA. This has to be the abomination of desolation.
Until recently, as recent as this decade most people didn’t have a clue what this meant. Most, including myself thought this brief description was the Antichrist stepping into the church which the One World Religion will bring forth…the head of the church.
Ezekiel 23 (KJV)
38 Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths.
True enough, these events took place but we must remember GOD works in parallels. And the desolation GOD speaks of will be 1/3 dying by plague; 1/3 fall by the sword; and the last third will be scattered to the wind.
GOD speaks of idolatry in the temple…this is literal and prophetic. Many men and women are worshiping false gods (fallen angels/demons) and GOD warns us that we shall see greated abominations than what Israel did when they worshiped Baal.
2 Kings 23 tells us that the cities of Judah and Jersualem burned incense to Baal, to the sun and moon and to the constellations and to all the host of heaven.
Let’s be clear about this!
They worshiped Baal, they burned incense to the sun/moon (sounds like Muslim doctrines) and to the constellations…why? Because they named them after the Greek demi-gods, the Fallen Angels…the host of all heaven.
In the Scriptures it speaks of Apollo (Acts, …and calls him a Israelite…but this is awful suspicious, is it not? It tells us it’s a real Jew, but I think we have another parallel here.
Here we sit…thousands of years later and humanity is repeating the same cycle! This is what GOD meant when HE said, there are still greater abominations to come.
So, GOD knows what’s coming. You can’t hide anything from HIM! Don’t seek to better your place in the future because that’s GOD’S job…HE knows exactly what you need. Trust is the key. Faith is our hope. Love in our Savior, Jesus Christ will guide us to the Only Path…our Father in heaven, Almighty GOD.
Speaking of abomination,…
Interestingly, in Genesis 28 (KJV)
17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
Jacob speaks of a stone, a pillow, a pillar…and describes the place of its location as the “gate of heaven”.
So, we have CERN…the world is finding out just how dangerous this place is. They admit to creating portals…to other dimensions.
Then, I heave China is doing the same, but the super collider they are constructing will be TWICE the size of CERN.
6 Billion to build it…it will be 50 KM in circumference…to begin construct in 2021:
The very symbols/LOGO of this website reveals so much…
Beijing’s Underground City
33 miles? Really? Hmmm…
They can try in hide in their coves underground but GOD will collapse them. Performing secret rites and rituals in thew dark only heightens GOD’S anger. Beware, those of you how follow false gods (Fallen Angels).
Oh sure, this is probably one of the most discussed out of all current prophetic subjects but my article is one which travels a little left field. I’m sure you’re use to that!
When you think of this title, you directly assume it’s the weather, or signs in the skies. Well, we know that the elite are very good at convincing mankind that most of the things happening around us are part of The Bible and its predictions…I mean all one need do is research the Chem-Trials, or even the animal deaths which have been happening an unprecedented scale all over the world! But that’s not the road I want to travel. This has surely been covered enough.
No! The avenue I want to highlight is magic.
Magic is something children are fascinated over, especially with the elite’s agenda to confuse them into believing that Harry Potter is a good thing,…and this is something that parents should be concerned about but the magic I speak of is…so-called “parlor tricks”.
Otherwise known as ‘platform magic’, ‘cabaret magic’…or one you might be more familiar with…”STAGE MAGIC”.
The names of the performers are nothing short of a household name! Names that are automatically known worldwide.
For instance, Harry Houdini, or David Copperfield….right?
Other names fall into place in this next link…
Top 10 Magicians of all time:
But, let’s take a stroll…shall we?
Dante, or Houdini…
Harry August Jansen, better known as Dante the Magician, was so influential that his death in 1955 has come to end what historians call the “Golden Age of Magic.”
The Parlor of Prestidigitation
2700 B.C. – The reputed first known performance of a conjuring effect (balls) by the magician Dedi (or Djedi) in ancient Egypt. Supposedly this is a fictional story but the next reported performance.
1700 B.C. – The Westcar Papyrus (located in Berlin) records the earliest known performance of conjuring…as a form of enter-tainment. (Was this the beginning of major spikes in possessions?)
40 A.D. – Simon Magus, aka Simon the Sorcerer and Simon of Gitta. Known as the founder of modern gnosticism. It is rumored he plunged to his death while performing his own levitation.
50-300 A.D. – Acetabularii – who’s performance was of the same type. It was in Rome.
That’s not surprising to me! The esoteric knowledge is given from the Greeks, to Egypt, and then to Rome (known as Roma). Of course, this knowledge is known in modern terms is the occult.
1000-1500 – The Middle Ages where much magic was still associated with the occult and witchcraft. The growing trading nature of society allowed some street or circus performers.
1963 – The Magic Castle is formed by Milt Larsen in Hollywood USA by converting a 1908 Victorian mansion to a center of magical excellence.
TEACHING A NEW CHURCH OLD TRICKS
I would venture to say that there is a very powerful and intelligent principality over the early church, and like a destroying hurricane, sweeping everything in its path…so was magic in the church. Much like today, it was used to trick people into giving money to the church…even up to their very last penny. Again, sounds like the modern church!
Spiritualism actually falls hand-in-hand with this article. This is the belief that spirits of the dead have both the ability and inclination to communicate with the living. The afterlife, or “spirit world”, is seen by spiritualists, not as a static place, but as one in which spirits continue to evolve. These two beliefs: that contact with spirits is possible, and that spirits are more advanced than humans, leads spiritualists to a third belief, that spirits are capable of providing useful knowledge about moral and ethical issues, as well as about the nature of GOD. Some spiritualists will speak of a concept they refer to as a “spirit-guides”–specific spirits, often contacted, who are relied upon for spiritual guidance.
The Bible is very specific about this subject…actually there are many verses which give warning of the consequences of such activity. But it never speaks of ‘hauntings’, per say. This is because when we die…we leave this dimension and this is why we’re told to test the spirits! Namely, the verse in 1 John 4:
According to those who believe in ghosts, there are three different kinds of hauntings: WAIT a minute…there are no such thing! No such thing as ghosts, only demons.
- Interaction with demons. These entities can masquerade as human spirits, but they are harmful and dangerous.
The Bible warns us to test the spirits. Why? Not because they may be your dead mother! But, because we have two sets…GOD’S and Satan’s spirits.
We’re meant to test them because GOD does send HIS angels but this is happening less and less. Why? Because The Holy Spirit and GOD’S forces are being pulled back the closer we get to the end. The veil is thinning and because of this, the dark side bleeds through more and more. This is meant to be. It’s not because Satan is in control but quite the opposite. GOD is in control but everything must happen according to HIS Master Plan.
So, if you take a look at the world in the past 20 years or so, you will notice that the paranormal is becoming the normal.
Spiritualism has played a huge part in this increase.
Now that we’ve established the fact that GOD tells us NOT to communicate with the DEAD…let’s continue.
Magic has a long history of being connected with the devil and the dark arts. The art of Phantasmagoria is a form of theater in which a modified lantern projected frightening images onto a wall…this reminds me of how the television (magic lantern?) was devised. The devil is in the details, right?
All the world’s a stage, right? For who? Satan!
Spiritualism and magic-tricks became synonymous and quickly people became enamored with the idea of magicians.
Vintage posters of magicians reveal that these men knew exactly who they were dealing with when they were performing.
Rene Walter has amassed an amazing collection of vintage magic posters:
Robert Heller was one magician who was blatant in his use of demonic imagery within his posters, and he even sent some of the flyers to churches!
After the Golden Age of Magic, the use of demonic figures diminished though as you will see, not entirely…even today.

Notice the deceptive practices?
Spiritual Movement-Golden Age of Magic-16th Century?
The Renaissance was a particular period of time of diverse activity with intense conflicts. But, the term “Golden Age” was a suggestion by H.P. Blavatsky of a “heaven on earth” for the 21st century as compared to the 19th century. This esoteric movement was said to begin when the “Age of Aquarius” was upon us.
HPB wrote of root races which would eventually become their own gods! Essentually growing out of its bonds of matter and flesh…which would allow their consciousness/subconsciousness to merge with the Masters of Wisdom….aka the “Golden Age”.
Some referred to her as one of the greatest thinkers of her time! Her all-embracing philosophy/theology combined with modern occult initiates makes for a ‘new Atlantis/Meropis’ where its inhabitants would be capable of superhuman feats.
Transhumanism is Blavatsky language of the elite. The lineage of the Merovingian’s are said to be the descendants of of the inhabitants of Atlantis, and they currently claim the bloodline of Christ. This may very well be true! But this Christ which they refer to is one of the Masters of Wisdom. NOT the Jesus Christ of The Bible!!
Manly P. Hall talks about magicians proving the spiritual world exists. He acknowledged that many a magician had lost his life as the result of opening a way whereby submundane creatures could become active participants in his affairs.
Ceremonial magic utilizes invocations and magic formulas to control demons! But, eventually the demons control the magician.
Don’t think for one second that this kind medieval magician died out…oh no! Indeed these wizards are securely implanted in this world today. In fact (black/white-both the same) magic has made an exponential comeback! These witches and warlocks use meditative states to connect to the hierarchy which The Bible refers to as “Powers, principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
There’s a reason why there has been an EXPLOSION in the rise of the occult…occult magick!
Head Disconnected From The Body
The HEAD of the Church is Jesus Christ….but the difference between the Church which Jesus Christ intended is at the opposite of the spectrum from what we see now. It’s disconnected from the body.
Jesus Christ warns us about the Church….we have the Churches of Revelation. And just as GOD always does…HE gives us a parallel of then and now. In the end days, the Christian Church is prophesied as being a great apostasy, which will open the door for the Antichrist and eventually, Satan himself.
Paul warns us of doctrines which will lead people astray…strange distortions of truth which has spread like wildfire on a windy day with the Church being in the eye of this tornado.
How do we know this is true?
Look around you….what’s the general attitude of people? Their values? Their morality?
What does the internal workings of a church look like? Does your church have a Starbucks? Does your pastor hold church in a stadium? Do they question the validity of the old church and their inner workings? Does your pastor publish books/CDs/DVDs on a regular basis but there’s not really any meat/substance to them? Does the Pastor drive a Mercedes while the congregation seeks help from outside sources to help pay rent, or buy food to eat? How much does your church help its community?
Does your church tell you to study different versions (i.e. “New World Translation) of The Bible? Does your church leaders speak of a global religion? Do they have signs outside which read, “Support your Government”? Does your pastor speak of you and your “divine seed”? Do you see strange types of “annointing” (Kundalini) of physical manifestations (trances) such as people flopping around, screaming and calling it the “Holy Spirit”? Have they spoken of introducing “prophetic booths”? Does the sermons consist of speaking about mysticism, mystics, seers as ‘gifts’?
Healing from Angels?
Toking the ghost?
God in a box?
Drunk in the spirit?
Did you know?
Rick Joyner, of Morningstar Ministries, is a self-proclaimed prophet and is very dangerous! He is a member of the Order of the Knights of Malta of the Roman Catholic Church!
I could literally go on and on….
This is spiritual war, friends.
