Satan

Satan, devil, demon

It is sometimes forgotten how discussions got started or how they ended up like they did.

And so it was about a very recent conversation about Satan (“…And the great dragon…that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan”–Revelation 12:9).

The conversation included odds and ends about idols, devils, angels, familiar spirits–and Satan.

Specifically, the qualities which Satan obviously has.

And while it is well-known that the devil, Satan, is an accomplished liar and deceiver, there’s not much else (outside of some speculation found in fictional stories, songs and various claims by TV preachers) that can be found about mankind’s number one enemy.

THIS was how the topic was immediately arrived at.

What follows are a few of the various qualities that discussion attributed to Satan.  (Other characteristics were discussed BUT those will have to wait for another time, another written piece.)

1- As stated, Satan is an accomplished liar and an arch deceiver.

“And the great dragon…that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world”
–Revelation 12:9

2- Satan is restless, constantly pacing, constantly walking about the earth, looking for dupes.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”
–1PETER 5:8

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”
–Job 1:6-7

Later in the Book of Job, Satan once again describes himself.

“Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. And the LORD said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”
–Job 2:1-2

MORE:  Satan is a Walker

3- Satan is, for the most part, very unoriginal and repetitive.

Satan is STILL TODAY telling the two lies he told Eve in the garden.

“And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die”
–Genesis 3:4

“… ye shall be as gods…”
–Genesis 3:5

In the devil’s defense, he does NOT have to be very original: the same old, same old lies are STILL working today.

  1. Because wicked, foolish man is ALWAYS looking for a way to escape judgment at life’s end; and,
  2. Because arrogant and VAIN man will never tire of being told he is wonderful; indeed, that he is a god; is on his way to becoming a god; acts like a god; whatever.

MORE: The Two Lies of the Serpent: Still Being Told Today

4- Satan, as a created being, serves God–EVEN in his role as mankind’s chief adversary.

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”
–Colossians 1:16-17

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”
–Isaiah 45:7

Though created as a glorious angel, Satan harbored rebellion in his heart and flipped.

HOWEVER, even a rebellious higher order of being (such as Satan) can be used by God to do His bidding.

So, to all who are deceived into worshiping Satan: Satan is a servant of God and serves at God’s pleasure.

As will be made perfectly clear at the climax of human history (the return of Jesus Christ).

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

A Question of Control

control

Of all the deceptions the workers of iniquity choose to participate in, probably the worst comes from their belief that they control familiar spirits and other evil spirits sent by God to hand out punishment in this life to the wicked.

This particular deception arises from several sources.

  • The workers of iniquity place their faith in the words of old men from the past.
  • The workers of iniquity may have been in contact with a spirit from an early age.
  • Because they are rebellious, the workers of iniquity place their faith in false SPIRITUAL AUTHORITIES which directly contradict God’s Word.
  • Much of the deception comes from the spirits themselves.  AS IF these higher order of beings are held in check and restrained by candles, circles drawn in the grass, salt, sparkling gems or crystals or incense or solemn words spoken in a commanding tone. These spirits are NOT restrained and controlled by such items–but it suits their purpose (especially to deceive the one who has been assured he is “protected“) to play along–just as it suits their purpose to let the human believe that he is “in control.

Because most workers of iniquity have had to toil for (in some cases) YEARS and, sometimes, have had to spend MUCH WEALTH to acquire “secret knowledge” which allows them to summon what is essentially their doom, they believe such spirits are a forbidden source of extrahuman power.

And there are some small displays of demonic power (which in the long run are totally inconsequential).

Because most workers of iniquity are arrogant and vain, they enjoy the feeling of having something most other men do not.

BUT, the sad fact is: the workers of iniquity cling to their judgment AS IF it was some great treasure which is their “right” since they worked so hard to obtain it.

Instead of a perfect judgment from the God they despise (which is unusual since most claim not to believe in Him).

“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 necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
–Deuteronomy 18:10-12

Poor, deceived souls!

As families are broken; as their health (and many times, the health of their family members) deteriorates; as their lives crumble and fall apart: the worker of iniquity fails to place the blame where it belongs.

Mostly, the blame falls squarely on themselves.

But ALSO on the same spirit they believe is such a benefit.

Because pride, vanity and arrogance are prime values of the wicked, they are trapped by their belief that they CONTROL their spirits.

Instead of being played as a sucker.

But, as already stated: the worker of iniquity is often deceived AND arrogant.

Regardless of how much proof he has, he STRONGLY DESIRES to believe that his association with a familiar spirit is a benefit, not a judgment.

Even if it means that everything around him that he formerly cared about withers and dies.

DOES the reader believe that being associated with a demon/evil spirit is a blessing?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

The Three Woes of the Last Days

woe

“And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”
–Revelation 8:13

In the very last days before the return of Jesus Christ, God smites the earth and its inhabitants with judgments.

These judgments fall upon end times man because it is the time for end times man to be judged.

Of all the many judgments God delivers, there are three which are particularly noisome. These judgments are called the “three woes.” These three woes are the fifth, sixth and seventh “trumpet judgments,” so called because an angel sounds a trumpet announcing that particular action by God.

What are the three woes?

THE FIRST WOE: God’s Demonic Army

God has been called “The LORD of hosts.”

The first woe is about one of those end times hosts.

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

“And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

“And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.

“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

“One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.”
–Revelation 9:1-12

More can be found on this end times army in Joel Chapters 1 and 2.

The reader should make NO mistake: this IS the LORD’s army and it IS the day of the LORD (the day of the return of Jesus Christ to earth).

“And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?”

Though Revelation describes this army as “locusts,” those who know their Bible KNOW this army is NOT composed of insects. Revelation declares that the members of this end times army had a king over them which is the angel of the bottomless pit.

Proverbs 30:27 reveal that the insects we call locusts have no king.

“The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands”

Neither Joel nor Revelation offer descriptions of those in the army which are as locusts are described.

One especially noteworthy aspect of this judgment is that the stings of this army will be so painful that “And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.”

Who Controls Demons?

THE SECOND WOE: THIRD OF MANKIND KILLED, THE TWO WITNESSES

“And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 

“And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

“And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

“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.

“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

“And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven. And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

“And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

“And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

“And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

“The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.”
–Revelation 9:13-21, 10:1-11, 11:1-14

The second of the three woes begins with a third of the remaining men on earth being killed.

It ends with an account of God’s two end times witnesses, who prophesy UNHARMED against the False Messiah for forty-two months in Jerusalem.

THE THIRD WOE: THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST AND ARMAGEDDON

“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.”

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.”
–Revelation 11:15,18-19,16:13-17

The third of the three woes is arguably the worst.

The third woe includes God’s final seven judgments–popularly called the “vial or bowl judgments“–and the gathering together of the world’s armies at Armageddon for their destruction when Jesus Christ returns.

Though this synopsis might not make the third woe appear to be bad, it is VERY bad for those who dwell upon the earth at that time.

In the Old Testament, the time of the woes is called the day of the LORD.

HAS the reader prepared himself for woe?

OR has the reader went along with the world and told himself there’s nothing to worry about?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Is Disinformation the Greatest Witchery?

witchcraft services

Of all the witcheries commonly practiced, perhaps the greatest are the many deceptions which are carefully nurtured by those caught in the snare that is witchcraft.

Although this quite likely will be disputed by those trapped in its coils, witches rival even the federal government in the amount of disinformation disseminated among the public.

This was all recently brought home during an interesting chat with a pleasant young woman whose family has been enmeshed in witchcraft for generations. In fact, it is not uncommon for friends of the young woman’s grandmother to greet the old lady with some variation of “How are you doing, you old witch?” and then laugh AS IF a great joke had been told.

During the discussion with the pleasant young woman–who had been an acquaintance for at least eight or nine years–several of the more familiar stories told by witches and their circles were brought to mind.

A few of these old wives’ tales follow.  (There are a great many more.)  Some are superstition; i.e., they are believed by at least some witches.  Others are deceptions meant to deceive the uninitiated as to the true nature of witchcraft and those who practice it.

1- There are good witches and and there are bad witches.

This has been a tale a long time in the telling. Europeans promoted this story with the designation of some witches as “cunning folk” or “wise women.”

Names given to folk healers or magicians in parts of Europe include the French devins-guérisseurs (soothsayer-healers) and leveurs de sorts (curse lifters), the Italianbenandanti (“good walkers“), the Dutch toverdokters or duivelbanners, the German Hexenmeister or Kräuterhexen, the Spanish curanderos, the Portuguese curandeiros/as,benzedeiros/as or mulheres de virtude (this last one applies only to females, translating as “women of virtue”), the Danish kloge folk,[1] Swedish klok gumma (“wise old woman“) or klok gubbe (“wise old man“), and the Slavic Vedmak.

The difference between being labeled a “witch” or a “wise woman” by neighbors usually boiled down to a matter of maliciousness on the part of the practitioner.  IF the person was seen as having evil intent toward others, they were branded a “witch;” IF the person’s intentions appeared to be mostly beneficent, then they were a “cunning folk.”

…most common people firmly distinguished between the two: witches were seen as being harmful and cunning folk as useful.

HOWEVER, God’s Word informs that ALL witches obtain their powers from access to illegitimate supernatural power. As such, the Bible associates witches with anyone else who consults with a familiar spirit (demon).

“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 necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
–Deuteronomy 18:10-12

Therefore, there are no “good witches“–only witches who are seen as back-scratchers and those who are not.

2- Witches do not consult with the devil because witches do not even believe in Satan.

This is often offered as a “witches’ defense once-removed.” Such as,

“I’ve heard that they don’t even believe in the devil.”

Strictly speaking–regardless of centuries of stories told by both witches and their supposed persecutors–witches are not powered by Satan.

The Many Stories Told By Satan’s Storytellers to Stroke Satan’s Ego

HOWEVER, Satan no doubt treats witches as he does any of fallen humanity: as those who have “seen the light,” forsaken God and Jesus Christ and joined Satan’s “winning” team.

Of course Satan is a master deceiver.

But one of the greatest deceptions is self-deception.

As for the popular claim “Satan is an invention of the Christian church“: accounts of Satan predate Christianity by centuries.

Satan is for Real

Satan: What does the Bible say about Satan, the Devil?

Many witches mistakenly believe (in private) Satan is a benefactor instead of someone whose motto is “Misery loves company.”

3- Witches practice MAGIC, utilizing an endless number of hexes, spells, incantations and the like–as well as the corresponding actions which accompany hexes, spells, etc.–to produce their power.

Magic Is Not

There IS NO magic.

There ARE displays of demonic power.

Let this piece serve as an introduction to the subject.

MAGIC: Some Thoughts About Magic

QUOTES: 30 Quotes about MAGIC

As previously stated, there are a GREAT many deceptions witches pass off as “the truth.”

Which leads to one final question:

“Is disinformation the greatest trick of all witchcraft?”

ONE last reminder to any of the few actual Christian readers: witches are part of fallen mankind.  They NEED the prayers of the believer in order to change paths.  

Therefore, do not forget to include prayers for witches as a part of daily supplications to the LORD–whether those prayers are appreciated, acknowledged or even wanted.

DOES the reader feel that witchcraft is merely a method of displaying “girl power“?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

Deception is NOT a Matter of Information Only

deception

During several recent discussions, it became clear that DECEPTION is not merely a matter of wrong information (lies), which is widely believed.

DECEPTION is a spiritual problem, not a problem having to do with information.

Yes, in many cases bad information (mostly lies) does lead to DECEPTION.  BUT, because DECEPTION is a spiritual problem, the lies themselves are not the whole circumstance.

In a GREAT MANY cases the deceived one contributes as much to his DECEPTION as do the lies.

So, the deceived share some of the responsibility for their situations.

This can be demonstrated by the following examples.

1- A man lies in the hospital, teetering on the edge between life and death.  The man has undergone surgery for throat cancer.  The man is a heavy cigarette smoker. Yet, even knowing his condition and the likely cause of that condition, visitors to the man’s room still find him sneaking into the bathroom or ANYWHERE! to light up a cigarette.

The man KNOWS his circumstance.  The man has PLENTY of good information about his condition. The man will even admit (while smoking) “These things are killing me!”  And yet, the man continues to engage in the same dangerous behavior which landed him in his very uncomfortable situation.

The man is deceived.

2- A woman is bitterly complaining about her fiance.  She has had him put in jail for violating a protective order and beating her up for times uncountable.

The woman KNOWS her circumstance. The woman has PLENTY of good information about her condition.  And yet, the woman continues to talk glowingly about her “future with Jimmy“–the man the woman had jailed for his latest beat-down of her.

The woman is deceived.

The world attempts to explain away the woman’s deception by supplying a great number of stories WHY this woman cannot let go of a person who regularly beats her.

But the world never touches on the woman’s deception.

3- A woman gambles, using her last quarter to play an electronic poker machine. Every month she gambles and every month she ends up a loser, gambling away all of the money she gets from her monthly Social Security check.  She makes ends meet by borrowing from those too drunk to refuse, petty scams and other nefarious means.

The woman KNOWS her circumstance: how could she not? The woman has PLENTY of good information about her condition–even going so far as to “swear” she is “getting help.”

The woman is deceived.

4- A man drinks heavily.  He is careful not spend all of his disposable income on alcohol, but he still allocates a goodly portion of his available resources to his habit.  As the man aged, his physical health has deteriorated.  The man’s doctor puts much of the blame for the man’s physical woes on the man’s drinking regimen. The man has been in the hospital several times due to alcohol-related afflictions.

The man KNOWS his circumstance. The man has PLENTY of good information about his condition–particularly from his doctor, who has become concerned. The man insists that he is “controlling his drinking so it doesn’t get out of hand.

The man is deceived.

In ALL of the above instances, the person who is deceived has PLENTY of information about the problem, the physical root of that problem and how that problem is making their life difficult.

In ALL of the above instances, the person who is deceived contributes to his circumstance by engaging in behaviors which are detrimental–and which he intellectually KNOWS is detrimental.

In ALL of the above instances, the person who is deceived may have AT FIRST succumbed to lies, but in ALL of the above instances, the person NOW knows his behaviors are not beneficial.

In ALL of the above instances, the person who is deceived could benefit from knowing what his true problem is.

The true problem is deception, which is spiritual.

Thirty Spirits

spirit

The Bible contains information about a GREAT MANY very specific spirits.

One would think that this might be self-evident: God’s Word being the ultimate in spiritual guides.

But it is not.

Modern storytellers have turned the very clear spirits of the Bible into metaphorical figures of speech.

However, the reader can know this is not right.  In fact, God is referred to as a “Spirit” and the “God of the spirits of all flesh“.

“Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation”
–Numbers 27:16

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
–John 4:24

By far, the most mentioned spirit in the Bible is the Spirit of God: the Holy Spirit (or the Holy Ghost).

“Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God”
–1JOHN 4:2

“And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”
–Ephesians 4:30

“All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit of God is in my nostril”
–Job 27:3

“If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?”
–Luke 11:13

“For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.”
–Romans 14:17

Also receiving a number of mentions–all in the New Testament, naturally–is the spirit of Jesus Christ.

“For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ”
–Philippians 1:19

But there are a number of other spirits mentioned as well. The natural man (non-believer), not having the spiritual key, does not understand God’s Word, and so he believes that when the Bible refers to the various spirits, it is speaking metaphorically.  OR, that the Bible is only a collection of writings of primitive man.

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
–1CORINTHIANS 2:14

Several times, the Holy Spirit of God is referred to as the “Spirit of truth” or the “Comforter.” He is also referred to as the “Spirit of grace.”

“Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”
–John 14:17

“Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?”
–Hebrews 10:29

The following are a few of the spirits mentioned in the Bible.

1- Spirit of prophecy

“And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
–Revelation 19:10

2+3 – Spirit of truth, spirit of error

“We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
–1JOHN 4:6

4- Spirit of life

“And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.”
–Revelation 11:11

5- Spirit of antichrist

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
–1JOHN 4:3

6- Spirit of fear/bondage

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
–Romans 8:15

7, 8 + 9- Spirit of love, spirit of power, spirit of a sound mind

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
–2TIMOTHY 1:7

10- Spirit of the world

“Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”
–1CORINTHIANS 2:12

11-Spirit of meekness

“Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself,”
–Galatians 6:1

12- Spirit of wisdom

“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him”
–Ephesians 1:17

13- Spirit of faith

“We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak”
–2CORINTHIANS 4:13

14- Spirit of infirmity

“And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself”
–Luke 13:11

15- Spirit of grace, spirit of supplications

“And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.”
–Zechariah 12:10

16- Spirit of whoredoms

“They will not frame their doings to turn unto their God: for the spirit of whoredoms is in the midst of them, and they have not known the LORD.”
–Hosea 5:4

“My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.”
–Hosea 4:12

17- Spirit of the living creature

“Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels. When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.”
–Ezekiel 1:20-21

18- Spirit of the king of the Medes

“Make bright the arrows; gather the shields: the LORD hath raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes: for his device is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of his temple.”
–Jeremiah 51:11

19- Spirit of heaviness

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.”
–Isaiah 61:3

20- Spirit of the humble

“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
–Isaiah 57:15

21- Spirit of deep sleep

“For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.”
–Isaiah 29:10

22- A perverse spirit

“The LORD hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.”
–Isaiah 19:14

23- Spirit of Egypt

“And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.”
–Isaiah 19:3

24 + 25- Spirit of judgment, spirit of burning

“When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.”
–Isaiah 4:4

26- Spirit of Cyrus

“Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, The LORD God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah.”
–Ezra 1:1-2

27 + 28- Spirit of Pul, spirit of Tilgathpilneser

“And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgathpilneser king of Assyria, and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river Gozan, unto this day.”
–1CHRONICLES 5:26

29- Spirit of Elijah

“And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.”
–2KINGS 2:15

30- Spirit of jealousy

“And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled: Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.”
–Numbers 5:14-15

In addition, a great number of evil spirits are mentioned. In EVERY instance in the Old Testament, these evil spirits were expressly declared to have been FROM GOD Himself.

“But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.”
–2SAMUEL 16:14

“Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech: That the cruelty done to the threescore and ten sons of Jerubbaal might come, and their blood be laid upon Abimelech their brother, which slew them; and upon the men of Shechem, which aided him in the killing of his brethren.”
–Judges 9:23-24

“And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left. And the LORD said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.”
–1KINGS 22:19-22

Also referred to is a “spirit of an unclean devil” and the “spirits of devils.

“And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice”
–Luke 4:33

“For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
–Revelation 16:14

So, what is the reader to take away from all of this?

Probably the best warning for the end times came from the Apostle John.

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
–1JOHN 4:1

There are innumerable spirits in the world–both those who do the will of God and those who do wickedly.

In either case, the reader would do well to take heed.

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Tales of the Demonic

Weird Tales of the Demonic

During a recent discussion with a friend, it was mentioned that a visitor had appeared one day at her workplace insisting that the visitor had a message from the friend’s late, long-departed husband.

The visitor (who did not request anything) then gave the friend information–some from the past, some from the immediate future–which was clearly surprising to the friend.  Mostly, it was surprising because the information was correct.  In some cases, the information was verified at a later date.

Upon hearing the account, it was remarked, “Very interesting.  Very surprising.  BUT though the information might be correct, everything is NOT as it was presented.”  Later, it was remarked once more that “the information was not as it had been presented.”

And there it stood–until the thought occurred later that there are a GREAT MANY tales told about the demonic. Many of these stories are told by those who know better–but they are told in order to deceive others.

MORE: IF One Does Not Know the Problem, One Can Never Find a Solution

Other stories are told by those who have heard such fables and, not knowing any better, repeat them.

Still others are told by the church folk, as these stories have been handed down through the years and have achieved the kind of treasured status that something old and traditional receives.

Sadly, the truth COULD be known by all IF a book which is no longer believed by the great majority of moderns was consulted.

But, in the times in which we live, few believe God’s Word–and so accordingly, many have to suffer from the lack of knowledge which occurs when men substitute the false fables of other men for the truth of the Word of God.

And so, we present five tales told about the demonic.

1- Those who claim to “talk to the dead” DO NOT talk to the dead.

Such persons communicate with  a familiar spirit (a kind of demon that the afflicted one believes serves him).  Many have maintained that such necromancers “told me information that only the dead person would know.

Familiar spirits (demons/evil spirits) know a great deal that is spoken aloud between two people.  The worldwide network of demons knows even more and will relay it to the spirit involved.

HOWEVER, the deceived claim that their necromancer is speaking to a dead loved one.

“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 necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
–Deuteronomy 18:10-12

“For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.”
–Ecclesiastes 9:5

“Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lord your God.”
–Leviticus 19:31

“Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”
–Ecclesiastes 12:7

This same situation is repeated among fortune tellers, diviners, wizards, witches, astologers or any other who consults with a familiar spirit–regardless of what story that person may employ to disguise the source of their power/information. Such information is from illegitimate supernatural sources and is strictly forbidden by God’s Word.

MORE

2- Demons are NOT under the control of Satan.

Satan does NOT control the devils/demons/evil spirits of this world.

God does.

God controls devils/demons/evil spirits.

As the creator of all, this makes perfect sense.

It is also biblical, as ALL verses from the Old Testament concerning evil spirits affirm that evil spirits are sent FROM GOD.

“Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech: That the cruelty done to the threescore and ten sons of Jerubbaal might come, and their blood be laid upon Abimelech their brother, which slew them; and upon the men of Shechem, which aided him in the killing of his brethren.”
–Judges 9:23-24

“But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him. And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee. Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.”
–1SAMUEL 16:14-16
Devils, Demons, Evil or Familiar Spirits: Ten Observations

Satan does NOT control devils/demons/evil spirits–though he will utilize their power whenever possible.

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
–Revelation 16:13-14
The Many Stories Told By Satan’s Storytellers to Stroke Satan’s Ego

3- A number of tales are told in order to explain the lack of God’s power in the churches.  Some of these tales lay the blame on the demonic.  Which, in some cases, is true–just not in the way it is presented to the congregations.

There are those in the churches who summon devils and familiar spirits (demons) to show up and imitate the Holy Ghost to impress the ignorant.

When various spirits (which those who run the churches pretend to be God’s Holy Spirit) put on shows for the congregation, the question those in attendance need to ask is “Is God glorified by this exhibition?

Wild dancing, twirling and yelling, as well as other displays, should easily supply the answer.

One question the congregations might pose: “IF God’s Holy Spirit is so present in the churches and so intent on putting on questionable displays of his presence, where is the power promised in the Word of God?”

Another question which might come to mind: “Why does our church not have the specific powers promised in God’s Word?

IF the congregation pays close attention, they will soon discover that those who control the churches spend a great deal of time explaining why their church is powerless.

MORE: The Powerless Churches: Church Folk and Their Lack of God’s Power

3- Having a demon/evil spirit expelled is not the end-all for a non-believer.

There are those in the churches who present the solution to the problem of demonic torment as a “deliverance from the demonic” issue.

For the non-believer, this is not true.

As Jesus said

“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.”
–Matthew 12:43-45

A- If a demon is expelled from a man and that man does nothing further (such as being born again), then the spirit which was expelled will soon return.

B- Not only that, but the spirit will bring seven other spirits MORE WICKED than the original spirit which came out. And so, the man who did nothing to prevent the return of the unclean/evil spirit will have to contend with EIGHT demons rather than just ONE.

C- IF the man who had the spirit expelled continues in his wicked behaviors, then God will send a greater judgment on the man.  There must be a change in the behavior which prompted the evil spirit being sent by God in the first place.

4- A great many dramatic tales are told by those in the churches. One such tale is that demons will “defy” those who seek to expel them using the name of Jesus.

This is not biblical.

“After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.”
–Luke 10:1-3

“And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.”
–Luke 10:17

There are some devils/demons/evil spirits which require more preparation than just casting out the entity in the name of Jesus.

“And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. “
–Mark 9:17-18

“And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.”
–Mark 9:28-29

5- There are a great number of dramatic tales told to the church folk about casting out demons.  A number of these stories revolve around and emphasize PROPS (such as Bibles, holy water, church rituals and crucifixes) while de-emphasizing the use of the name of Jesus.

This is not biblical.

AT ALL.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

Watchmen on the Walls

"Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;"

watchman-wall-pd "Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

--Ezekiel 33:1-6

More important than pomp, popularity, riches or recognition: we will be guilty of no man's blood upon our hands.
