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.

DOES the reader know of anyone who is deceived?

HAS the reader ever wondered why that person engages in his “self-destructive” behaviors?

“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.”

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.

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.

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.

Compulsions of the Flesh: Brought Into Bondage

chain

“While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.”
–2PETER 2:19

Recently an acquaintance (who has had problems with strong drink) mentioned that a certain amount of the liquid (which he had previously restricted himself to) was “no longer working.”

He then floated the idea that he perhaps he should increase the amount of strong drink he allowed himself each day.

He also asked for suggestions on this topic.

The main suggestion offered was “Rarely is MORE of what’s ailing you the solution.”

Later that same day, 2PETER 2:19 came to mind.

“…for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.”

Basically, whatever compulsion of the flesh overcomes a man, that same man is then in bondage to that same compulsion.

This then brought to mind all of the many compulsions which have been labeled as “addictions” by moderns.

AS IF there was no choice  by the person involved.

Sex, drugs, alcohol, chocolate, shopping, pornography, fatty food, smoking, whatever.

Addictions” are physical cravings which not so very long ago were more accurately labeled “lusts.”

OR, more accurately still: the “lusts of the flesh.”

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1JOHN 2:15-16

Oh, by the way: still no word about what the acquaintance decided.

A great many tales have sprung up around these fleshly lusts–particularly from those who profit by “solving” these problems…

…which never seem to resolve themselves.

If the reader still believes the many tales told about the fleshly compulsions–such as being a result of “brain chemicals” or “chemistry” OR the ones about the “enablers” sharing co-responsibility for the choices made by the one with the fleshly lusts–then the reader will likely NEVER put two and two together to overcome such bondage.

OF COURSE, this is the main reason so many worldly stories surround these fleshly compulsions.

IF one does not know the problem, then one rarely finds the solution.

Don’t Let the Muggles Get You Down

Harry Potter

While looking about recently on a trip to a book store, a large sign caught the eye.

The sign was for sale.  It was the type of sign one can buy to post in one’s home as a conversation starter or just to declare where one’s thoughts are on a particular topic.

The sign proclaimed “Don’t let the muggles get you down.”

Although this particular phrase might not mean much to the casual observer, it was known that in the occult world of Harry Potter, “muggles” referred to a person who was not magical.

In fact, a quick Internet search revealed that the term “muggles” is actually used–and has been employed for decades–in the real world.

muggle

a person who lacks any sort of magical ability and was not born in a magical family. Muggles can also be described as people who do not have any magical blood inside them. It differs from the term Squib, which refers to a person with one or more magical parents yet without any magical power/ability, and from the term Muggle-born (or the derogatory and offensive term mudblood, which is used to imply the supposed impurity of Muggle blood), which refers to a person with magical abilities but with non-magical parents. The equivalent term used by the in-universe magic community of America is No-Maj, which is short for No Magic. The neologism, No-Maj was popular in the 1920s but soon went out of fashion and the original term, muggle came back into use before World War II and has been muggle ever since.

Muggles: other usages

Like so much else that is repeated endlessly in the stories told by Big Entertainment, “muggles” is more a term of deception than a mere plot device.

“Muggle” is a term meant to mislead and deceive those who do not know any better–as is the term “magic.

There is NO magic.

There IS demonic power from a familiar spirit.

Meanwhile, back at the bookstore, the mind then wandered to the thought that this is all merely end times camouflage to assist the wicked.

Harry Potter was one of the largest propaganda campaigns ever conducted to convince the masses that wizardry, sorcery, demons and witchcraft is, not only acceptable, but is to be preferred over the alternatives.

To convince that familiar spirits and those cursed with them are fashionable and cool.

Witchcraft in the End Times: Popular and Fashionable

Meanwhile, that quick Internet search also revealed that  “Don’t let the muggles get you down.” merchandise was widely available.

Mugs, shirts, signs, keychains: like so much else in the world, whatever occult wish one has can be fulfilled for the right price.

Don’t let the muggles get you down.

It’s a great way to show which side the youth should be on: those with familiar spirits who are able to perform “magic” and other parlor tricks OR the non-magical muggles, who must make do with the same boring routine: day after day, year after year.

Those who control the world do NOT do counterprogramming.

Otherwise there would be signs–and much other merchandise as well–available which proclaimed, “Don’t let your evil spirit pal give you cancer” OR “Don’t let your demon drag you to hell.”

IS the reader familiar with the warning “Don’t let the muggles get you down“?

IS the reader a fan of Harry Potter and other popular occult tales?

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.

Devils, Demons, Evil or Familiar Spirits: Ten Observations

devils

Ten observations on devils, demons, evil, familiar and/or unclean spirits.

To the regular reader of End Times Prophecy Report: some of the following will, no doubt, be familiar.

To the occasional reader of End Times Prophecy Report: the reader may be better acquainted with the stories of the churches and the world than of the following.

To the new reader of End Times Prophecy Report: the following will likely be new.

1- Demons/devils/evil spirits are NOT under the control of Satan.

This is one of the stories which is told by the wolves in the pulpit, popular writers and others who labor in the churches of the tares.  There is NOTHING to support this contention in all of God’s Word.

Nothing.

Now, there are MUTUAL interests which occur–as among any group of like-minded creatures.  One such illustration of this is Revelation 16:13-14.  But Satan does NOT control demons/devils/evil spirits: God does.

“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.”

Satan does NOT send devils/demons/evil spirits: Satan has no control over these spirits.

Satan has no more control over demons/devils/evil spirits than the car mechanic down the street.

2- 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

“And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.”
–1SAMUEL 16:23

“And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul’s hand.”
–1SAMUEL 18:10

“And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.”
–1SAMUEL 19:9

“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. Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.”
–1KINGS 22:19-23

3- Devils/demons/evil spirits are a judgment from God on the wicked and disobedient.

As the previous Old Testament verses signify.

And even if the one who is sent affliction does not recognize his actions as sin and disobedience.

4- Devils/demons/evil spirits may be cast out IN THE NAME OF JESUS by believers.  They may also, on occasion, be cast out by non-believers.

However, those who are not saved apparently also can cast out demons (at least at times) using the name of Jesus.

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Matthew 7:22-23

Notice that Jesus doesn’t tell these people “I don’t know you now” or “I no longer know you.” He says He “never knew” them.

Yet they were able to cast out demons in His name. Or at least they claimed to have cast out demons in His name.
EXORCISM: 10 Observations on Casting Out Demons

5- Devils/demons/evil spirits are cast out of a person IN THE NAME OF JESUS by God–not by church-appointed exorcists; not by church-approved rituals; not by “holy water” or Bible verses or anything else other than the power of God through the name of Jesus.

As Jesus put it: “But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.”
Luke 11:20

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

6- Devils/demons/evil spirits are agents of torment and affliction–even if the one being tormented does not recognize this.

Even if the one being tormented and afflicted believes the devil/demon/familiar or evil spirit is a great treasure which unlocks powers others do not possess.

EVEN IF the one who has accessed the evil spirit–in direct defiance of God’s Word–has jumped through many hoops in order to access this spirit.

These spirits are sent by God to torment and afflict those who are disobedient–particularly to those who practice what the Bible calls “abominations.

Through this torment and affliction, God attempts to have the afflicted one examine what might be wrong and causing him all of the trouble.  In this way, repentance comes about at times.

“But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.”
–1SAMUEL 16:14

7- Many tales are told by the world and the church folk concerning devils/demons/evil spirits.

There are many of these deceptive tales.

WHY would such tales be told?

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

A few of these tales are:

8- Evil spirits are fallen angels.

We can KNOW this is untrue because the Bible specifically declares that fallen angels are in chains beneath the earth until the day of judgment.

NOT running around tormenting and afflicting man.

“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
–Jude 1:6

“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment”
–2PETER 2:4

(Though there are a few specific bound angels which are released a bit earlier in order to carry out specific tasks from God.

“Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.”
–Revelation 9:14

9- Christians (believers) cannot be troubled by evil spirits.

There is NOTHING in the Bible about believers being exempt from devils/demons/evil spirits.

“He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.”
–Job 36:15

In oppression, i.e. in the time of their oppression. Or, by oppression or tribulation, as the means of opening their ears and hearts.
–Matthew Poole Commentary

God has a variety of ways to chastise those he loves, depending on the need.

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”
–Romans 3:19

10- Devils/demons/evil spirits are attached to houses, relics, or some other inanimate object.

Demons do not “haunt” places.

They strongly desire to be in the BODY of someone.

They constantly seek a host.

“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.”
Luke 11:24
EXORCISM: 10 Observations on Casting Out Demons

There is more–MUCH MORE–to be said on this topic.

It has been almost four years since we last addressed the specifics of this subject.

God willing, a return to this discussion shall not take as long this time.

God willing, the discussion WILL continue…

Everyday Demons: Demons in Everyday Life

everyday life

 

During the past several months, the following was overheard during a discussion.

“I never was a heavy drinker.  I never did drink much liquor or whiskey.  Except for a six-month period.  I was involved in some things I shouldn’t have been involved with and I started drinking to kill the bad feelings that came over me.”

“Did it help?”

“I found out you can’t drink that much. So no.”

“What happened?”

“After a short time, I stopped doing what I was doing and the bad feelings immediately stopped.”

The discussion then turned to those “bad feelings” and what might have caused them, as well as what they might have been.

It was during this time that one thought of the many celebrities, stars and other of the rich and celebrated who drank themselves to death–many before the age of 30–despite having what appears to be all of the advantages the world can offer.  Might they also be trying to “drink away” bad feelings?

Then, the conversation turned to other–though related–topics.

Such as ILLNESS and what might be the cause of sickness and disease.

Modern medicine claims that disease is caused by “germs” and “microbes.”  But Germ Theory is only about 140 years old.  What did the medical authorities claim caused disease before the Germ Theory story was agreed upon?

Bad air” or the Miasma Theory.

The wise doctors and medical authorities before 1880 would look at their patients and tell them the story of how bad air caused their disease.

And then they prescribed fixes which were about as effective as the ones used 140 years later in our present day.

MORE

There was mention of the biblical proscription against the speaking the names of pagan gods (devils).

“And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.”
–Exodus 23:13

This was so important a command, it is repeated several times.

“And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.”
–Deuteronomy 12:3

“Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left; That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them”
–Joshua 23:6-7

“And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.”
–Zechariah 13:2

It was also mentioned how DIFFICULT it is for the modern person to obey this command due to the extreme number of modern companies and everyday products–even many of the days of the week and some months– named after pagan gods, devils and demons.

MORE: Demons USA: Demons in Everyday Life

Finally, the discussion landed on why it is that so many everyday products and services in the modern world are named after pagan gods, devils and demons.

And that this circumstance grows worse, not better.  The reader cannot begin to know the number of everyday words which are the same as the name of obscure devils, demons and pagan gods.

SO NOW, that is the question posed to the reader:

Why does the reader suppose that so many everyday products, services and other descriptions used everyday in the modern world are named after pagan gods, devils and demons?

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.

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.
I am not ashamed of the gospel
