Why We Should Not Initiate Communication with Angels, Including Michael

By Reverend Mark Hunnemann

I chose this title carefully because I could have entitled it: ”Why we should not communicate with angels”. However, I want to leave open the possibility that holy angels occasionally do initiate communication with humans today. All biblical theologians agree that overt angelic activity accelerates at crucial junctures in the flow of redemptive history (e.g. Announcement of Christ’s birth)As we’ll see, the word “initiate” is key in this discussion.   Furthermore, it would seem that disguised interaction with humans is a rather frequent angelic tactic (Hebrews 13:2), as well as their general call to be ministering spirits to us. (see Hebrews 1:14) So, please don’t think I am in any way minimizing the reality and frequency of their more covert role as our helpers/protectors, and occasional overt appearances. But, there is a big difference between that and OUR initiating contact with angels.

Every day I receive emails which advertize a book, services, ect. for how to communicate with an angel, or our guardian angel. I must confess that this is hot stuff. I mean, who would not be amazed and wowed by a visitation by an angel…especially if they had personal guidance for us? Pretty sensational, and we’re drawn toward that. I get it. But is this practice good, biblical and safe? No, on all three.

There is an explosion of books, and magazine articles dealing with this subject. In addition, in paranormal circles, some folks are attempting to reach angels. I know one man who will not try to reach the dead, but insists that he has been very successful in initiating communication with angels via traditional EVP methods. And he claims it’s biblical (more of that in a moment).

Moreover, in some churches there have been prophetic utterances that claim to be from an angel or a deceased preacher….or even Isaiah!  For the sake of time, we’ll focus on the claims for angelic utterances. The point is that popular culture, including the church, is getting inundated and fascinated with the angelic. And so, it is only appropriate that we ask: is it proper/biblical to initiate communication with angels? It’s sort of like an angelic form of EVP’s, which is precisely what one man I know claims is the voice he hears is. I have no idea how many EVP’s  are coming out these days that claim angelic authority, but my guess is that its growing in number. Satan is an opportunist. But whether the sought after angelic reply is audible or inaudible makes no difference—it is attempted communication with angels, and a possible reply.

So, the need is there for some clear guidance on this matter—one that takes into consideration all the salient data regarding angels. I may not answer some of the questions you may have regarding angels, but my focus is narrow: should we initiate communication with angels?

There are about 300 explicit references to angels in the bible…according to my concordance. Let us return to the man who claims that he not only gets EVP’s from angels, but that the bible warrants it. He cited verses like the angel talking to Mary, and the angels announcing the resurrection. But my point to him, which he seemed to have missed, was this: there is not a single case in the gospels or Acts where the Apostles (or even Jesus, as acting in His role as being the ideal Man) INITIATED communication with angel/s.

Nobody disputes that at crucial junctures of redemptive history angelic communication increased with God’s people. However, my point is simple—if Jesus and the apostles NEVER initiated communication with angels, then surely that is instructive. Authoritatively instructive because truth is communicated via Jesus’ actions, as well as His words—or lack of them in this case. Just because there is no explicit command not to initiate communication with angels, does not mean the bible is silent on the matter. Surely the life and practice of Jesus and His apostles is as authoritative in its instruction as explicit teaching. This is especially true when we see that the gospels and the book of Acts have numerous accounts of angelic visitation, but none were instigated by a person. It was always God Almighty sending His holy angels to do His bidding on behalf of His Bride. Always and everywhere in the bible, angels are the initiators in angelic/human encounters.

I could stop there and that should be sufficient to show that we have no business contacting angels. But let me add this. Why does God detest our using horoscopes? Because He created the planets and stars for us to enjoy, and to distinguish between night and day/seasons, etc. To look to the stars and planets, which are part of God’s creation, for advice, instead of looking to the Creator for guidance and wisdom (re: relationships, love, decisions, job, and so on) is idolatrous and grieves God.

The same with angels—they are creatures and should not be sought out to give us wisdom, protection, and guidance. Why look to an angel when we can talk to our Heavenly Father? Again, it is idolatrous. Or to put it another way, we have the Bible and the Holy Spirit within us to guide and direct us in the paths of righteousness. Is not talking to angels a slight on the Holy Spirit? The classic text in Proverbs 3:5-6 needs to soak into our hearts and minds, and realize that God is jealous that we not only not look to our own insights, but also not the insights of other finite, fallible creatures, like angels.

Let me ask a simple question: WHY do you even want to talk to angels? For guidance…or insight…protection..or an angels perspective on the spirit realm…or being honest, just because it’s cool and fun? Doing an ‘end-run’ around God to attain these goals is unacceptable, even idolatrous. Do you see the prophets, apostles or Jesus communicating with angels for this purpose? NO! Then it is forbidden to us as well.

Switching gears, attempted communication with angels may open you to demonic oppression, just as trying to converse with the dead will do the same. Demons excel at mimicry…including mimicking angels (2 Corinthians 11:14). Unlawful communication with spirits is forbidden, and exposes you to demonic oppression. If you do receive a reply, then I’m fairly confident it is NOT an angel. It may appear or sound like a holy angel, but its not. Having opened the door to the demonic, then you are communicating with the demonic. The reason why I keep saying that virtually all paranormal activity is demonic activity is because holy angels do not play EVP games, cause phantom footsteps, cause keys to disappear, etc. They are our servants  and delight in the supremacy of God’s glory.

Since this man (or anyone) is actually speaking to demon/s when he thinks he’s conversing with an angel, then there will be consequences. Though sincere, he is sincerely wrong…and traffic with demons will burn all those involved, and sadly there is often collateral damage as well. The children will start getting influenced.

Those who attempt to speak to human spirits or angels tend to become addicted to this endeavor. This is well documented, and the recent case of Steve Huff is a high profile case of a phenomenon that is very widespread…and ruining individuals and families.

It is safe to say that angels don’t want us talking with them because they are loathe to draw attention to themselves. In every way possible, they will seek that all the glory goes to God.

The man who actively seeks angelic EVP’s  says that this angel actually talks about the gospel and evangelizing the lost. Could and would a demon do that, he asks? The answer is: absolutely yes! Satan, and his angels, went to the best Seminary in the universe (heaven) and  were taught by God Himself. Hence, though demons may inspire a message that is entirely true, the identity of the messenger (the alleged angel) is a LIE. Let that sink in….the message is true, but the messenger is a LIE.

For example, by giving an evangelical and sound answer, the alleged angel ensnares the undiscerning and advances the kingdom of darkness by spreading the lie that one can communicate with angels. It’s the same MO he uses with communicating with allegedly deceased humans.

Demons, either by appearing as angels or deceased humans, can persuade the non-discerning simply by quoting the bible accurately. If he can make strategic advances in his kingdom, Satan will preach truth all day, but there is always a catch. And eventually, some imbalance will begin to appear in the teaching.

Some folks think that if they attend a church where the bible is preached, and the Holy Spirit is moving powerfully, then they are safe from demonic counterfeit or attack. Not so. Genuine spiritual revival—whether localized or large-scale revival—gets Satan’s attention and becomes his target to sow seeds of counterfeit revival. This was studied by Jonathan Edwards during the great revivals he and John Wesley was very instrumental in. One example of such a counterfeit sign might be angels of light visiting a vibrant church and persuading people via a ‘prophetic utterance’ to focus so hard on ministry busyness, that they lose their fervor for prayer. The ‘angel’ wants them to get so busy, they lose their first love and become prayer-less in their busyness, and spiritually powerless. Busyness is not the same as bearing Holy Spirit fruit—starting with the fruit of the Spirit.

When you read the book of Colossians, we can see that there was the same fascination with angels then, as there is today in the West. It is simply another reflection of the ascendancy of the occult worldview which is taking over our culture, and is despoiling many Christians’ views of the proper role of angels.

Hebrews 1:14 is the classic text of the angels job description.

Hebrews 1:13-14 KJV

[13] But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? [14] Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

In addition, we remember 2 Cor. 11:14 of the “Angel of Light”

2 Corinthians 11:14 KJV

[14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Over-familiarity with angels is something that has been brought to my attention as well. With few exceptions, when humans had an encounter with a holy angel, they were terrified, and were tempted to bow down to them, which was abhorrent to the angels. However, it is instructive that the casualness that seems to accompany some of these alleged angel discussions, is in itself a red-flag.

Let me add the very common practice of reciting the prayer to Michael, the archangel. I know more than one person who seems to claim a special ministry partnership with Michael. That is a distinct issue, but let me strongly caution anyone who thinks that they are attended by Michael on a regular basis. He can only be at one place at a time, and frankly, why do WE think that he overlooks billions of other people just to be our ministry companion? He is the protector of God’s people in both Testaments.

If you’re explicitly relying on angelic help and communication in deliverance ministry,  Beware! You may end up needing deliverance yourself. Sometimes folks use ‘angelic’ help to heal people. In the NT we don’t see apostles consciously working alongside angels in ministry. Of course angels were present, but the apostles didn’t saddle up to them as partners…tapping into their powers. They relied on the Holy Spirit.

Here is the prayer said by countless investigators, as well as folks in general, seeking protection.

Michael the Archangel Prayer

“Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.”

In essence, we need to treat this petition to the archangel just like we did above regarding angelic communication in general. As is readily apparent, this ‘prayer’ is TAKING THE INITIATIVE TO CONTACT AN ARCH-ANGEL, MICHAEL.

Do we have any instances in the gospels or Acts in which the Lord Jesus or the apostles called on Michael to aid them in spiritual warfare? Is there any teaching in the epistles regarding how/why we should pray to Michael for assistance? A thousand times, NO! We’ve already noted that the church NEVER initiated communication with any angels. So, why do we think that WE should pray to an angel, when the early church did not? Do we know something Jesus didn’t? God forbid!

In addition, Ephesians 6 is the most comprehensive teaching on spiritual warfare in the bible. What does it say? Be strong IN THE LORD, and put on His full armor. No mention of praying to Michael. In Colossians, we are warned against anything that smacks of angel worship, and PRAYING to a creature like Michael is a form of worship…in this case, idolatry. You don’t commit idolatry, even sincerely, without consequences.

Colossians 2:18 KJV

[18] Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

Michael is a mighty warrior and worthy of respect, but he is not a saint. Gloriously, all genuine Christians are saints!

Don’t get me wrong: angels in general, and Michael in particular, are actively involved in spiritual warfare (Daniel 10:13). However, the Lord Jesus is the General of the Heavenly Hosts…not Michael. And for reasons already stated, we must not pray to him. God in His sovereign wisdom will dispatch His angels according to His will.

Why do we even want to pray to Michael, when he is but a finite creature, whom we shall judge and rule over for all eternity? He is more in awe of us then we are of him, and is part of the heavenly spectators of us as God’s image bearers, and those in union with Christ,  and he standing on tippy toe to see how God’s kingdom is advancing through US today!

On the other hand, I do get it. If I was on a case, it would be comforting to know that Michael himself was there. However, it is infinitely more comforting to know that I have the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit…and by virtue of my union with Christ, I have HIS authority over demons.

So, why do so many people pray to him? First, it has become common to do so in the paranormal community. But we take our clues from God’s Word, and not any practice that has become commonplace. Many wrong things/beliefs have been practiced by large segments of society, but our conscience is bound only by the bible. If you are a Christian, your primary identity is not a paranormal investigator, but part of the Body of Christ…and our allegiance is to Him, and not to a group. Following the crowd is not the way of a believer.

Another reason I’ve seen is that somebody we deeply admire prays this prayer. But once again, God’s Word is our guide, and not fallible humans, no matter how godly and ‘successful’.

For Roman Catholics, this is an ‘official prayer’, sanctioned by the church. For them, there are 2 strands of equal authority: the Word of God, and tradition…especially tradition sanctioned by papal ex cathedra decree or by ecumenical counsels. (eg Trent) But I see no evidence that this prayer has been officially sanctioned as ‘infallible tradition.

I say this gently but firmly, we must stop this praying to Michael; He is NOT a saint because he has not been saved by Christ and brought into union with Him. WE are the saints, and we should stop this practice of praying to an angel.

I cannot speak with absolute certainty regarding the consequences of praying this prayer, because I am not God. And many powerful things have been accomplished in and through folks who pray this prayer, but it is spite of this prayer and not because of it. It is tragic to consider, but if praying to angels opens doors to the demonic, then this prayer to Michael for protection may actually do the opposite. It may cause us to come under even more severe attack. It is supremely ironic, that a prayer meant to seek protection, may give the devil an opportunity (topos). I’m sure God is merciful and often works through us despite our severe shortcomings, but that is no reason to continue a practice that is manifestly odious to God’s Word. The phrase “better safe than sorry” comes to mind if you have any doubt at this point. The stakes for all involved are way too high, just to continue praying to an archangel because it’s so common. Do we really think that Michael, who is supremely zealous for God’s glory, would be happy with us worshipping him via prayer? I think not.

I’ve already strayed, so let me re-state my basic premise: from Genesis to Revelation (especially the NT), when there is angelic encounters, they are NEVER initiated by man. GOD initiates the encounters with his holy and heavenly messengers. God said it, That settles it. I believe it. Amen.

PS. If this offends you, then please list biblical texts to support your case…thank you.

Angelic Communications, Is it Biblical?

In the above video, (Link above ^^^^^^) Laura Maxwell and Mark Hunnemann discuss the topic of this growing trend we see today in the paranormal community and abroad. We even see it within the Catholic Church. The “initiation” of angelic communication.. but, is it biblical? They also discuss the dangers involved in this practice, including demonic oppression, or even worse, possession.

You will hear how Laura shares with the listeners how she too was deceived by this practice and later sought deliverance as a result! A MUST HEAR!!!!!

12 Points Regarding the True Identity of Ghosts by Rev, Mark A. Hunnemann

12 Points Regarding the True Identity of Ghosts

by Rev, Mark A. Hunnemann

 

In the last decade or so, the belief in ghosts has exploded; changing the spiritual landscape of America. Polls indicate that what was once a fringe belief is now embraced by at least one-third of those in the US–65% of young adults.

In addition to its prevalence, there are titanic issues at stake surrounding the question of their existence.My own passionate desire to get at a definitive answer to whether ghosts exist resulted in publishing Seeing Ghosts Through God’s Eyes–which is a comprehensive analysis of this juggernaut from a biblical worldview perspective.

Because of space constraints, I will state my thesis and then briefly give evidence to support it.One more preliminary point–this is NOT some ivory tower debating point…it is immensely practical and serious. Every day scores of dear people are becoming demon oppressed due to curiosity or confusion re this issue.

What we call ghosts are said to be the trapped souls of deceased human beings.We all have an ultimate authority we appeal to in order to answer life’s most basic questions–this authority is unconscious for most people.Two intellectual starting points: we can either answer this question via speculation or revelation…our autonomous reason or Gods word.

God’s word is emphatic that ghosts don’t exist. What we perceive as ghosts (apparitions, EVP’s, smells, shadow figures, and so on) are really demons mimicking deceased humans in order to deceive us.

1. Deut.18:9-14 God commands us in the strongest language to not attempt to speak to the dead…this occultic practice was popular in Canaan.As with idolatry the reason for the prohibition on spiritism was the demonic reality behind it All other passages in the bible re spirits are to be interpreted through this primary text (basic hermeneutics)…..

2. In 2 Cor. 11:14 we are warned that “Satan can appear as an angel of light” in order to deceive us.If the devil can appear convincingly in a form antithetical to his true identity as the prince of darkness, then he–and by extension his demons–can easily appear as an apparition of a little girl crying, an elderly lady dressed in white, Uncle Charlie, a spirit guide, and so on. In agreement with above text, most judicious paranormal investigators acknowledge that demons can mimick and morph into anything they so desire…anything. If that is the case, then how can we ever be certain that a paranormal phenomena is not demonic…..we CAN’T!

3. From personal experience as a demonologist and exorcist, EVERY alleged ghostly entity has revealed it’s true identity when biblically challenged.

4. Heb.9:27 (and many other passages) state that death is determinative of eternal destiny; that is, upon death our souls go to heaven or hell. For the honest seeker, there is good academic evidence supporting the authority of the bible as God’s word.

5. When Jesus died on the cross, He defeated Satan, death, and the grave…he holds the keys to death and the grave (Heb 2:14-15; Rev. 1:18) That a traumatic death could trap an unsuspecting soul is contrary to every doctrine of the bible.

6. For 3,500 years the historic Judeo-Christian faith has taught that ghosts were demons, but as New Age beliefs displace Christianity, the belief in ghosts has soared–both inside and outside he church.

7. Having studied the data carefully, the entities we call ghosts lack certain aspects integral to true humanness.

8. Ghost hunters claim that they use the scientific method. Yet the vast majority of traumatic deaths do not result in a haunting. If a theory (traumatic death can lead to soul being trapped) does not hold true in the vast majority of cases, then something is amiss re the theory…it certainly cannot be claimed to be based on science.

9.  Jesus created the world and sustains it moment by moment (Col.1:16-17) When He walked on earth 2,000 years ago demon possessed people came to Him in great numbers…the demons recognized who He was. Ghosts and demons are said to occupy the same dimension. Then, why do we NEVER see Jesus ministering to ghosts, who seem to be far from perfect….Also, why did ghosts not seek Him out to help them as demoniacs did….If they did exist, then we would rightly expect Him to help these allegedly poor trapped souls.The simplest and best answer is that He did not minister to ghosts because they don’t exist, otherwise He would be guilty of overlooking an integral part of His creation.A re those who seek to assist ghosts in crossing over more knowledgable and more compassionate than He who created the world and is perfect love…To ask the question is to answer it.

10. Lastly, (there are many more), if ghost are real ,then why do they not show the same character and personality as when alive…We are allegedly surrounded by ghosts, which means there should be a good cross-section of America represented. With many thousands of hours of EVP’s caught on tape, there are no EVP’s which sing of the glories of Jesus Christ….they are on the front door to eternity, and yet they are mute about AMAZING GRACE…demons hate grace.

11. What we call the paranormal realm is the place God has sovereignty decreed to be the temporary home of Satan and demons. Hence, we are unwittingly “playing in Satan’s sandbox”.This is unspeakably horrible and dangerous.

12. Any attempts to communicate with the dead are as dangerous as playing with a Ouija board..The commonality is an invitation for residents of spirit realm (which is Satan’s abode) to speak or make their presence known. That gives a foothold to demonic…

Séance, The Conjuration of Demonic Spirits

What is a Séance?

According to Wikipedia:

A séance or seance (/ˈs.ɑːns/) is an attempt to communicate with spirits. The word “séance” comes from the French word for “session”, from the Old French seoir, “to sit”. In French, the word’s meaning is quite general: one may, for example, speak of “une séance de cinéma” (“a movie session”). In English, however, the word came to be used specifically for a meeting of people who are gathered to receive messages from ghosts or to listen to a spirit medium discourse with or relay messages from spirits. In modern English usage, participants need not be seated while engaged in a séance.

Necromancy/ the conjuration of the spirits of the dead…

Necro:

The dead

Mancy:

a combining form meaning “divination,” of the kind specified by the initial element: necromancy.

Evocation/ is the act of calling upon or summoning a spirit, demon, deity or other supernatural agent, in the Western mystery tradition. Comparable practices exist in many religions and magical traditions and may employ the use of mind-altering substances with and without uttered word formulas.

*It’s interesting to know that in commercialized grimoires book of magic spells and invocations it says that evocation includes elements of ‘diabolism‘ and one (The Grand Grimoire) even offers a method for making a pact with the devil, in general the art of evocation of spirits is said to be done entirely under the power of the divine. The magician is thought to gain authority among the spirits only by purity, worship and personal devotion and study.

The Rise of Spiritualism and Spirit Communication (according to common folklore, history, and beliefs)

The Fox sisters

According to common folklore and belief, Leah, Margaretta, and Catherine Fox, from New York, played an important role in the “creation” of spiritualism, as we know it today. The two younger sisters convinced the older sister and others that they were communicating via seance’, with spirits, via “rappings”. They were considered popular and successful “mediums” for many years.

In 1888, one of the sisters, Margaretta, confessed that their “rappings” had been a hoax and she publicly demonstrated their method. She later attempted to recant her confession, but by that time, their reputation was ruined. In less than 5 years, all three sisters were dead.

Despite their confession, the spiritualism movement continued to grow in popularity.

(According to Wikipedia, Fox sisters)

When I think of the word “séance”, It makes me think of times when I was a paranormal investigator, and our investigation team would sit around a table, in a dark room, with candles lit, and everyone holding hands, singing songs to attract/appease the spirits, and once contact was made with the spirits, we would ask the spirits questions, while we all eagerly awaited responses, which would come by way of a simple knock, or a tap on the table, or in some cases, the table would actually levitate and rock back and forth on its own.

*It “appeared” to be on its own, but later I found that in reality, it was a demonic force that was responding and moving the table.

Different types of Séance:

Religious Séance:

In the religion of Spiritualism, and the religion of Divine Metaphysics (a federally recognized religious branch out of Spiritualism in the United States), it is generally a part of services to communicate with living personalities in the spirit world. Usually, this is only called “séance” by outsiders; the preferred term for Spiritualists is “receiving messages”. In these sessions, which generally take place in well-lit Spiritualist churches or outdoors at Spiritualist camps (such as Lily Dale in upstate New Yorkor Camp Cassadaga in Florida), an ordained minister or gifted contact medium will relate messages from spirit personalities to those here in the physical form.[4] Generally Spiritualist “message services” or “demonstrations of the continuity of life” are open to the public. Sometimes the medium stands to receive messages and only the sitter is seated;[6] in some churches, the message service is preceded by a “healing service” involving some form of faith healing.

(Wikipedia: Séance)

Stage Séance For large crowds:

These types of Séances are very common today as there have been many examples of it shown on TV. Shows. Shows such as “Long Island Medium”, Tyler the Hollywood Medium”, and many others have made spirit communication very appealing to the public. These are usually done with the Psychic/medium giving and receiving messages from spirits posing as dead loved ones, to the audience members. Just as with any other “supernatural” types of performances, there are always some cases where fraud and trickery are involved. But nonetheless, there are cases where these “psychics” truly relayed very detailed massages that only the person and the “alleged” spirit would have known. The true question would be, “what kind of spirit is actually giving these messages?” A trapped human spirit, an angel, or a demonic spirit?

Seance’ in modern society today

Among this new generation of spiritualists and those that are simply fascinated with the concept of earthbound/trapped spirits, there are many types of Séances happening around the world today. With an explosion of interest in the occult and paranormal, there has risen a tradition of conducting séances outside of any religious context and without a leader. Many seance sessions are with only 2-3 participants.

Paranormal reality TV shows are also at an all time high. One quick search on our local TV guide came up with several shows related to the paranormal and ghost hunting. Here are some…

*To know the heart of society, look at its entertainment.

Many people are wondering what makes viewers believe, or disbelieve what they see on the TV screen. The popular paranormal shows are not only featuring “ghost stories”, but they are using fancy para-tools to collect evidence of “ghosts”, and calling it “science”. Even many skeptics are tuning in.

All it takes is a group of paranormal enthusiasts waving around cool looking tools that beep and suddenly people believe in ghosts and haunted houses.

Today it is more common to see groups of only a few people participating in Séances, attempting to copycat what they have seen on the latest “Ghost Adventures” episodes, using the latest evp recording devices, or “ghost boxes”, to record the voices of alleged earthbound spirits, only to compare gathered evidence with other paranormalists and hoping to get the “holy grail” of all evidence, to prove life after death, and that “ghosts” do exist.

Then there are those that are sensationalists, or paranormal daredevils that may be participating in Séances as a way to test their understanding of the boundaries between reality and the paranormal. These séance participants are often known to use ouija boards, dowsing rods, etc., often along with attempts of provoking spirits into performing, usually via religious provocations, verbal threats, etc., just to get that sought after evidence of spirit manifestation and materialization.

*Please note that ALL spirit communication is dangerous. It is a common misconception that Séances where the participants are using an ouija board is more dangerous than those that simply use a digital recording device. The truth is, ALL spirit communication is an open invitation to the demonic.

My late friend Joe, conducting a séance session using dowsing rods, with a few other team members.

But one must take into consideration what the Bible says about life after death, and the possibility of “trapped spirits”. Because if they are not truly the trapped earthbound spirits of our departed loved ones, what are they?

Earliest known instances of Séance recorded in history:

While many believe that “Spiritualism” and Séances began around the 1700-1800s with the Fox sisters, or even the wife of President Abraham Lincoln, it is important to know that Séances goes back to the days when the Old Testament of the Holy Bible was written.

We see the first known recorded seance in scripture, with the story of Samuel and Saul. There were mediums, necromancy, divination, and Séances in those days. The Bible tells us that there is nothing new under the sun. The enemy uses the same tactics today that he used in the days before Christ came and walked the earth as a man. In those days, there were people that believed in “ghosts”. (Earthbound Spirits)

The medium calls up the “familiar spirit” that masquerades as the departed spirit of Samuel.

1 Samuel 28:7-15 KJV
[7] Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor. [8] And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee. [9] And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those tthat have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die? [10] And Saul sware to her by the Lord , saying, As the Lord liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing. [11] Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel. [12] And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. [13] And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. [14] And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself. [15] And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do.

Familiar Spirit, or the Departed Spirit of Samuel?

Amoung many other controversial topics in the Bible, the incident that took place in 1 Samuel is one of the most controversial, especially within the “paranormal community”. Many scholars have debated on this issue, as to whether Samuel himself was actually called up by the medium, or if it was a “familiar spirit”, masquarading as the departed spirit of Samuel. In order for us to know the truth, we must look at scripture and divide the word rightly. After dividing the word rightly, and carefully looking at this incident, as it is written, and comparing it with the whole counsel of the Bible, I, and many others, have come to the conclusion that this was actually a familiar spirit, masquaradeing as the departed spirit of Samuel.

This is what led me to this conclusion:

1. Verse 14 says: And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground..

*When we look at the word “perceive”, it means:

Perceive: “to identify by means of our senses.”

The word “perceive” does not necessarily mean the perception was correct. It only means that the perception was based on the information gathered. Things can be perceived correctly, but they can also be falsely perceived.

2. Verse 13-14 ..what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. [14] And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle.

*The medium seen “gods” ascending out of the earth..

I find it interesting that she seen “what appeared to be Samuel”, amoung “false gods”, ascending out of the earth. This tells me it was a familiar spirit (demonic spirit) as it also ascended out of the earth with the other demonic spirits (false gods).

3. Verse 7 “Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit”..

*This point is very important, as it is actually the very answer to our question, right under our nose. If it had been a snake it would have jumped up and bit me!

4, By Dividing the word rightly, with the rest of the Bible:

1 Chronicles 10:13-14 KJV
[13] So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord , even against the word of the Lord , which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it ; [14] And enquired not of the Lord : therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.

*Saul was actually enquiring of the familiar spirit, not Samuel himself.

5. In Luke 16:19-31, The story of the rich man, and Lazerus, the beggar makes a few things clear, which show the impossibility that Samuel himself could have possibly came back from heaven to talk to Saul. It shows that when saved people die, they are immediately carried to heaven by an angel, and the wicked lift thier eyes up, being in torment, in hell. It also says that there is a great gulf “fixed”, which makes it impossible for someone to leave heaven or hell to talk to the living. Abraham also told the rich man that if the unsaved will not believe Moses and the prophets, they will not believe, though one come back from the dead. So, if God will not allow a departed spirit to “come back” from heaven or hell, for the gospels sake, He will not allow them to come back for any other reason. As the gospel is the most important message anyone could give someone else!

The Bible also tells us….

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJV
[10] 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, [11] Or a charmer, or a CONSULTER WITH FAMILIAR SPIRITS, or a wizard, or a NECROMANCER. [12] For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord : and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

There are reasons that the Bible forbids communication with spirits

The Bible tells us that Satan masquerades as an angel of light.

Isaiah 8:19 KJV

[19] And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

*God wants us to inquire of HIM, not familiar spirits.

These spirits do not speak according to Gods Word

1.Because they pretend to be earthbound spirits, when the Bible teaches that people either go straight to heaven or to hell when they die.

2.These spirits are also known to say that they “cannot go to the light”, but that they need the “paranormal investigator” to assist them into the light. This would suggest “Post mortem salvation” (Salvation after death) which is contrary to what the Bible teachs.

*Please see my article on “Post-mordem Salvation” (Salvation after death) for further proof that this is contrary to what the Bible teaches.

3.These spirits are known to say there is no real, literal hell.

Dangers involved with Spirit Communications

Demonic spirits masquerade as trapped earthbound spirits of our departed loved ones. Even most paranormal investigators will admit that demons are capable of “mimicking” the dead, and that often times they do.

(AKA; The “little girl ghost lie”)

While some believe that “mimicking” is “sometimes” the case…

The truth is… when paranormal activity is present, it is ALWAYS demonic spirits involved.

*Even holy angels do not “haunt” us.

Satan is the father of lies, and his minions are liars as well. During these Séances, they will give good, and accurate information, in which usually persuades people that, not only is the information true, but that they are indeed whom they say they are. THIS IS A GREAT DECEPTION.

What would be their motive? As long as we allow and consent to them being in our lives, they will have access to us.

These spirits are here to STEAL, KILL, AND DESTROY.

Once we allow them into our lives, they will eventually cause much havoc in our homes. Sometimes this takes days, months, or even years, before their true identities become known.

There are known cases where mediums that have used their “ability” to receive messages from these “spirits”, have later become unable to control such messages from coming through, in instances where the spirits literally took over the medium at unsuspecting times, and even tried to harm or kill them.

Laura Maxwell’s mum, Rita Peffer

One case in particular, a psychic medium, named Rita Peffer, (Mother of Laura Maxwell, Ex-Spiritist), would have episodes where the spirits that she often communicated with, suddenly turned on her, showing their true negative identity. The same Spirits that she once knew to be the kind spirits of dead loved ones that she spoke to often. They changed. Suddenly, she would go into trances, against her will, at unsuspecting times, and she would hear the voices of these spirits yelling at her and saying very negative and hostile obscenities toward her. She would be walking down the street and a spirit would take over her abruptly, and give passerbys messages, and then the spirit/s would try to throw her in oncoming traffic to get hit by moving vehicles! Also, once she was in her kitchen and then suddenly she went into a trance (against her will) with later waking up to finding the kitchen on fire. The spirits were trying to kill her. Tragically, Laura’s sweet mum later took her own life after having gone through such demonic torment. Please see the full testimony of Laura Maxwell. Laura leads a very successful ministry, called “Our Spiritual Quest”, warning people of the dangers and deceptions surrounding spiritualism, the new age, and the occult and she shares the truth of Jesus Christ.

(Please see more on Laura Maxwell below, under article)

How demonic spirits work

Just as with any other sin, the enemy will try to “tempt us”. They will try to “lure” us into occult practices. (necromancy, divination, consulting with familiar spirits, idolatry, etc.)

Usually, soon after someone dies, a familiar spirit will attempt to make “contact” with us. They will try to make thier presence known. These attempts can range from the sound of footsteps, or things being moved on it’s own, disembodied voices, physical manifestations that can be seen, such as the form of dark shadow figures, orbs, or full bodied apparitions, trying to mimic a deceased person that is familiar to us or a particular place. It could also be strong smells of things that you would associate with a particular person, such as cigarette/cigar smoke, or perfume.

The problem comes in when people do not “test the spirits”. Could this spirit truly be an “earthbound spirit”? Is this concept in line with scripture? 

What to do if you or someone you know suffers from a haunting

When these spirits attempt to contact you, or make thier presence known, you need to rebuke it in Jesus name! When this is done, these spirits always flee! This is proof that they are not whom they say they are.

After the spirit flees, as described above, if it returns, you must evaluate the situation. Usually, when there is any type of “haunting”, the familiar spirit has some kind of “legal right” to be there. Something must be contributing to an open door to the demonic. Is it possible that you or a family member may need deliverance? If you’ve had deliverance, are you, or someone in your household involved with any habitual sin or occult practices?

If you or someone you know suffer from demonic attack, please contact me. If for some reason, I am unable to help, I can help you connect with another deliverance minister who may live in your area, or can help you via Skype.

Seeking first the kingdom of God,

HELL, An Eternity Without the Acceptance of Jesus

Written by Kevin Riordan

A few years ago while doing street ministry I encountered a group of kids skateboarding. They we between the ages 16-20. I began to talk to them about Jesus and they were making fun of me.

I told them that this was the most important information you will ever hear. I explained that the conversation we were having would have incredible significance one million years from now. That if they never put their faith in Christ, they would go to hell.

I then began to describe what it would look like. I shared with them that hell would not be a big party, where all their friends would be, but it would be unspeakable torment. I painted a pretty clear picture from scripture. I shared about the blackness of hell, the foul smells of hell, the dryness of hell, demonic torment in hell, the ear piercing wailing in hell, how their is no sleep in hell, and the lake of fire. I explained how you will have an eternal body that will never die, that completely feels all of the pain and torment. I explained how in hell you have your memory. For all eternity you’ll remember every time someone came to you with the message of the gospel, appealing to you to follow Jesus. For all eternity you’ll remember laughing and scoffing, and rejecting the gift of salvation that Jesus died to give you. Lastly I talked about the hopelessness in hell as you are faced with the fact that you will be in that place for ALL eternity.

Most of the kids continued to laugh and joke, but there was one kid who was locked on everything I was saying. When I finished he pulled me to the side and asked if he could talk to me.

He began to tell me that he overdosed on heroin and died a year earlier. He told me that he was in the place I had described. He remembered coming out of his body and falling down a tunnel and landing in a pit. He said “I saw everything you described.” He told me about the the darkness, the smells, the horrible shrieks of pain and agony. He described the lake of fire that people were being thrown into, and the grotesque demons he saw. He told me that he looked up and saw a pinprick of light. He was suddenly sucked up to that light and back in his body. He told me that he didn’t know where he was, but that he was terrified of going back. I reiterated the gospel and he Committed his life to Jesus.

Hell is real. It is not only for bad people. There is a misconception that if you are a “good person”, a generous person, you’ll go to heaven. The reality is that hell is full of people who were really good by the worlds standards, but sadly rejected Jesus. Heaven has plenty of people who were not so good by the worlds standard, but placed their faith in Jesus, received forgiveness and were born again.

If you reject Jesus, you reject His heaven. The bottom line is this, one way or another, payment for sin will be made. Either a person will receive Christ and His blood shed on the cross will pay for your sin, or you will reject Christ, and pay for your own sin in hell.

It is not Gods will that anyone go to Hell. God did everything He could possibly do to keep you out of that place by sending His son Jesus to die for your sin. Give your life to Christ. Experience healing and freedom in this life, and peace, joy and happiness for all eternity!!

The Exorcism of Laura Constantino, Sister of the late Famous Ghost Hunter, Mark Constantino

~Article written by Dana Emanuel~

Exorcism/deliverance after involvement in Paranormal investigation/s, which led to Demonic Harassment And Deaths.

SEE VIDEO HERE, OF OUR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH SISTER AND BROTHER OF LATE FAMOUS GHOST HUNTER, MARK CONSTANTINO!! >>>>>>

https://youtu.be/XmUNi-7rP_g

On July 14th 2018, After seeing my video “The Great Paranormal Deceptions”, on my good friend, Laura Maxwell’s YouTube channel, Laura Constantino contacted Laura and myself regarding demonic activity and torment she was having in her home.

Her brother, Mark Constantino, of the famous TV show, “Ghost Adventures”, died in tragic circumstances, (double murder-suicide) on 9/22/15 at the age of 53.

Laura’s brother, Mark Constantino, and wife, Debbie Constantino, of the famous TV show, “Ghost Adventures”, died in tragic circumstances, (double murder-suicide) on 9/22/15.

Mark and Debbie Constantino, of “Ghost Adventures” TV Show, Featured on the Travel Channel.

How Laura’s personal nightmare began

On the show, Laura C. explains that after the tragic deaths of her brother, Mark Constantino, and his wife, Debbie, Laura was curious and wanted answers. How could someone, like her brother, that she knew so well.. do what he did? This was not a case of someone she hardly knew, but this was her brother that she grew up with.

As Laura explains in the interview, they grew up together, going to catholic school, and Mark was even an alter boy. This was not someone that lived in a home with no love. Her and Mark grew up in a loving home with very loving parents. The conversations between them never ended without saying, ” I love you”.

Laura and her siblings (Laura on front left, Gary on top left, and Mark on top right)

As Laura mentions on the show, she had many unanswered questions. Could this “hobby” of Marks’, (hence his involvement in the occult/paranormal) attributed to the tragedy? Could it have been that demonic spirits led him to do what he did? And what was it about the “paranormal” that Mark was so passionate about? Could the tragedy have actually been linked to this “hobby” of his?

Soon after Marks death, Laura decided to go to Virginia city, where Mark lived, to hopefully, try to get some answers. Her, along with her brother Gary Constantino, and her daughter Samantha LeoGrande all went together, despite warnings from her Priest, that “nothing good could come out of it”.

Laura, Samantha, and Gary

After they arrived, they went to a local “ghost hunt” to find out what it was about the “paranormal field” that Mark was so attracted to, and to also see if the investigators could possibly “contact Mark” during their ghost hunt, as she had seen Mark do so many times on Tv.

During the “ghost hunt”, it was brought to their attention that one of the investigators captured an EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) of what sounded like her brother Mark’s voice. They were all amazed, and also “convinced” that they did indeed make contact with Mark.

In the interview, Laura and her brother Gary explain that after arriving back home, almost immediately, Laura’s daughter, Samantha and Laura, started having paranormal activity in their home. The activity that Samantha was experiencing slowly progressed to severe torment. The incidents became more severe, and even physical. There were a few times, in which the demonic spirits literally almost killed her.. (house fire, auto accident, etc) After months of this torment, and failed attempts of house clearings by the family priest, Laura’s precious daughter, Samantha passed away unexpectedly.. when only an hour before, her eyes appeared to be black in color, and she “didn’t seem like herself”. Laura felt certain that Sam’s life was taken by something not of this world.. something evil, something supernatural.

Soon after Sam passed, the paranormal activity that Laura was witnessing, soon escalated. As Laura explains in our interview, things happened such as sightings of “shadow figures”, and there were even incidents of physical attacks. Laura also suffered from incidents of sleep paralysis, where she would wake up on the floor, finding that she had been dragged out of her bed. Once, She even walked into a room and found her hanging cross inverted upside down. Besides all the demonic torment she was going through, she was also grieving for her daughter Sam, to the point of major depression, at times, even considering suicide.

Laura Constantino and her beautiful daughter, Samantha LeoGrande

Out of pure frustration and desperation, she finally put her home on the market for sale. She couldn’t take anymore. She was seeking help through the Catholic Church, as this was all she knew. But why weren’t they able to help her? Why wasn’t things getting better after the priest would come and pray for her? The torment only escalated.

One day, she was searching on YouTube for answers, as she had done so many times before, She came across a video, called “The Great Paranormal Deceptions”, by Dana Emanuel, an ex-paranormal investigator, now a deliverance minister. On the video, Dana talks about the dangers involved in the paranormal field and the occult. During the video, Dana coincidentally mentions Laura’s brother, Mark, and the tragedy that led to his and his wife, Debbies’ deaths.

After watching Dana’s video, on Laura Maxwell’s YouTube channel, Laura C. contacted Dana and Laura Maxwell. . (Laura Maxwell is an ex-spiritualist, now Deliverance minister , Radio host, and owner of Our Spiritual Quest International Ministry.)

After Laura C. contacted Dana, they spoke several times over the phone, sometimes the conversations lasting 3+ hours, as she and Dana discussed the torment that her and her family were going through. Having gone through a very similar situation, Dana explained to her how her prior involvement in the occult (paranormal investigations) eventually led to the demonic torment that Dana and her family went through, and she explained the steps necessary to rid herself and her home of the demonic spirits.

About the hosts of Spirituality Today, Laura and Dana Investigate

About Dana Emanuel, Radio Show Co-host:

Dana, being an Ex-Ghost hunter herself, was very familiar with Laura’s brother Mark Constantino, and his wife, Debbie. As she was always a big fan and follower of theirs while she was in the paranormal field. Dana used to be the founder of “Dead Time Paranormal Investigations”, until she finally left the field in 2011.

Dana left the paranormal field and got deliverance (aka exorcism) after her and her family suffered severe demonic attacks, and she learned that the “spirits” she was communicating and interacting with during these “ghost hunts”, were actually demonic spirits, masquerading as the departed spirits of our dead loved ones, (familiar spirits) just as the Bible tells us. After leaving the field, Dana began a deliverance ministry, warning and teaching others about the occult, and deceptions regarding the paranormal field.

About Laura Maxwell, Radio Show Host

Laura Maxwell, also has a very similar testimony, leaving spiritualism and the occult, but only after losing her dear mum tragically to suicide, after suffering severe torment by demonic spirits.

Laura Maxwell’s mum, Rita Peffer

Laura Maxwell leads a very successful ministry, Our Spiritual Quest, warning people of the dangers and deceptions surrounding spiritualism, the new age, and the occult and she shares the truth of Jesus, on TV and radio interviews. Laura Maxwell was also the Radio Host for “The Supernatural, on Eternal Radio”.

Laura Maxwell and Dana teamed up and advised Laura C. of what needed to be done for her to get deliverance and to stop the demonic activity in her home. They counseled with her for several months.

In the meanwhile, we did a radio show interview with Laura Constantino and her brother, Gary Constantino, on August 25th, so Laura C. and Gary could warn others about the dangers involved in the paranormal. But after that show was recorded, Dana and Laura M. discussed getting Laura C. deliverance as she truly needed it. At this point, she had listed her home for sale, as the demonic harassment had become severe.

Laura Maxwell contacted a close friend of hers, Pastor Michael Cummins, Deliverance minister, to see if he could assist/lead in Laura C.’s deliverance, in which, he graciously volunteered.

Laura Maxwell and her good friend, Michael Cummins, of Revelation TV.

On 9/6/18, Laura Maxwell, and Dana assisted Michael Cummins as he led Laura’s deliverance, over Skype, which was very powerful and ended successfully, and we give God ALL THE GLORY!!!

After her powerful deliverance, we kept contact, and witnessed a miraculous transformation in her life, and besides all of the demonic activity ending, she is no longer depressed, or has thoughts of suicide! Even some people that she knew in her daily life told her that “something about her had changed” for the better. One lady told Laura that she seemed so happy and that the change was noticeable! The lady had no idea about her deliverance or the demonic torment she had been secretly going through.

The day after Laura C.’s deliverance, she messaged Laura and Dana, and told them, “when I woke up this morning, although it is cloudy outside, it seems as the day is bright, with birds singing, and it feels so good, and I feel FREE”!!

We did a second Radio interview with Laura C., to update everyone with her testimony, following her powerful deliverance, in which is included in the video! It’s a MUST HEAR!! (Part 2@ 1hr 59 minute mark)

Laura LeoGrande writes:

I am free! Thank you Jesus. Three years I suffered and was tormented every day. I thought I was going crazy. Then I came across your video Dana, and I know God had me watch it. Divine intervention is what happened to me. Thank you Laura Maxwell, Michael Commons, And you Dana Emanuel for giving me my life back! My long-distance sisters, I love you both so much! Gary and I thank you for having us on your show to tell our story…..

Dana Emanuel writes:

This/these interviews were special to me for personal reasons, and Laura C. has been such a wonderful friend. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her transform spiritually where she has found profound freedom, like she has never experienced before! This case was personal also for my cohost and good friend, Laura Maxwell, as she too shares a very similar testimony! We pray that others will realize the truth behind paranormal research/the occult and how it affects people spiritually. We need to only seek the truth in Gods word and submit ourselves to it. Freedom is only found through Jesus… in Jesus alone!! This case was difficult as the enemy came against it in many ways. I was honored and humbled to have been able to assist and take part of her miraculous deliverance with Micheal Cummins and Laura Maxwell. It was very powerful and brought her much freedom! People that weren’t even aware of her situation and deliverance communicated to her of the noticeable differences and positive changes in her, which was the result of her deliverance, praise God!! We give GOD all the glory!!!!

Laura Maxwell writes:

Please share & pray that countless ghost hunters, mediums, and psychics, including fans of the world famous “Ghost Adventures TV show”, (that Mark & Debby both starred on with Zac Bagans and Team), see this interview with Mark’s brother and sister! Many thanks! God bless you!

Not long ago a tragedy rocked the paranormal community with the passing of the Constantino’s. It obviously affected the family the most, and Mark’s sister and brother were interviewed by Laura Maxwelland Dana Emanuel.. It was one of the most touching interviews I have ever heard…and later Mark’s sister was spiritually freed in marvelous way.

DISCLAIMER:

“We recognize and respect the diversity of opinions regarding involvement with the paranormal and it’s possible role in the Murder-suicide tragedy that occurred with Mark and Debbie Constatino, and her roommate, James Anderson. Neither the public nor the family ever believed that Mark was mentally or morally capable of carrying out his actions.

While there have been comments made by family members that were made public regarding the incident, we really cannot comment on them, as we don’t know all the facts surrounding them nor do we know all the private facts regarding Mark and Debbie on the day of or leading to the tragedy. Speculation and here say would not offer any resolution nor will it bring peace to any of the families involved.

We too want nothing more than the truth of what happened, and we do not wish to avoid Mark’s blameworthiness of his actions. As deliverance ministers, given what we know about spiritual warfare and the demonic, we do feel that the demonic played part in the horrific tragedy that took place on Sept. 22, 2015, claiming all 3 lives. Not only were their lives ended, but the lives of all 3 families were affected tremendously. And we do not wish to add to their loss and suffering by initiating or allowing hurtful statements in this forum. This is to respect and protect all families involved.

The intent of this channel and blog is to help educate others of the dangers involved in the occult and to share testimonies of those that have been through similar situations and have found the truth about these deceptive spirits, and have since turned to Jesus Christ and have found true freedom. We hope and pray that no other family ever has to go through what these 3 families have endured. We want the victims’ families to know our thoughts and prayers are with them. As bad as we, the public may feel about what happened, it pales in comparison to what the victims’ families will have to face and endure in the coming years.“

Christian Witches

Christian witchcraft has become a new topic of debate within the Christian/secular community. The reason for this is that there are many people that claim to be Christian, while at the same time, they hold onto their Witchcraft beliefs.

How is this, one might ask? This has made myself and others curious, curious enough to examine witchcraft and what it truly means to be a witch, and if it is truly compatible with Christianity.

Please see my video on this subject here:

https://youtu.be/7oh-y-R3r2U

I thought it would be wise to first examine the question, What is a witch?

When I went to Wikipedia, it said:

“A woman thought to have magic powers, especially evil ones, popularly depicted as wearing a black cloak and pointed hat and flying on a broomstick.”

Although this description seems to fit what society visualizes when the word witch is mentioned, one must know it is much more complex than that.

Witch – One who practices witchcraft, usually one of the pagan / or Witchcraft religion.

When researching this subject, and asking this question, I was surprised at the variety of different answers I got. There are several different types of witches, and “groups (aka covens)”. Please note, all these different groups/covens have different traditions/beliefs.

Some topics that not all witches/covens agree on are:

The afterlife

Reincarnation and karma

Heaven and hell

God/s and goddesses

Jesus

Holy Bible

Sin

What is witchcraft?

According to the pagans path website:

It’s a form of spirituality and a religion, like many other faiths. In the most simplistic definitions, Witchcraft can be described as:

A nature based religion that believes in the balance of mind/body/spirit within the divine multiverse. It is a religion and way of life, honoring all things seen and unseen within that divine multiverse. Practitioners strive to live in harmony and balance within nature, believing we (human and nature) are all interconnected and parts of the greater divine force. Some call this force, The GreatSpirits, The Divine, God/Goddess, All That Is and so on. It’s really up to the individual and what label best fits their view of the Divine Spirit.

*This type of belief is new age. It suggests religious relativism.

What does the Bible say about witchcraft or “witches”?

Anytime we want to know if something is accepted by God, we must look at what His Word says. For the Christian, God’s Word is our final authority in all matters of our faith and life.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJVS

[10] 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, [11] Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. [12] For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord : and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

2 Kings 21:6 KJVS

[6] And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the Lord , to provoke him to anger.

What is a Christian?

First we should look at the first time the word “Christian” is used in the Bible:

Acts 11:26 KJV

[26] And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Christians are those that accept and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. They assemble together in the church and study what the disciples taught, which is the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are Christ followers.

What is the gospel?

Christians must believe the gospel. The gospel is essential to the Christian Faith.

In Christianity, the gospel, or the Good News, is the news of the coming of the Kingdom of God. Paul’s gospel is of Jesus’s death on the cross and resurrection to restore people’s relationship with God. It also includes the descent of the Holy Spirit upon believers and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

How do you get to have eternal life?

John 3:16 KJVS

[16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 17:3 KJV

[3] And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

What does it mean to be saved?

Acts 16:30-31 KJVS

[30] And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? [31] And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Note: Anyone can “say” they believe in Jesus.. but that doesn’t mean they believe in the one and only true Jesus.. Jesus our savior! Many false religions claim to believe in Jesus, but in reality, they believe in a false Jesus. For example; Jehovia witnesses, Mormons, and 7th day advents. Some new age religions believe that Jesus is/was a descended master.

Jesus as a “Descended master”

Can you be both? Be of light AND of darkness?

1 John 1:5-7 KJVS

[5] This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. [6] If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: [7] But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1 Corinthians 10:20-21 KJVS

[20] But I say , that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. [21] Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

Saying something, verses true “confession”..

You can say anything, but it doesn’t mean you believe it with your whole heart. To confess something, means to declare it as absolute truth and knowing it as fact.

Verse that says “Lord Lord”

Their hearts are far from me:

Matthew 15:7-9 KJVS

[7] Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, [8] This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. [9] But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men

*To all Christian Witches~ Do the things of the world, including the practice of witchcraft, come before God and what He has to say about it? A true Christian will “want” to please God, and will not want to do things that He abhors.

Christianity and Wicca-

Not only do they not agree, but they are blantly opposed, one to the other!

Do witches believe the Bible? Are they true believers? If they claim to believe, but yet they only accept “parts of the Bible, and make up an image of a Jesus that is different that the Jesus of the Bible, then they are created a graven image of Jesus Christ. It is a different Jesus.

Witches believe that humans are not superior to nature. They believe in nature admiration. The Bible says that amount people that rebel against the Bible are those that worship nature and the created things, instead of the creator. In which, would be in rebellion against God‘s word.

Witches believe in using divination, sorcery, and magic, while the Bible condemns it.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJVS

[10] 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, [11] Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. [12] For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord : and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Witches also believe in spirits, spirit guides, and ghosts.

The Bible does not describe or support the notion of earthbound spirits/ghosts. The paranormal phenomena of ghosts, spirit guides, and spirits, are described in the Bible as familiar spirits. These are demons. Satan and his fallen angels masquerade as ghosts.

2 Corinthians 11:14 KJV

[14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

1 Samuel 28:8-14 KJV

[8] And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee. [9] And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die? [10] And Saul sware to her by the Lord , saying, As the Lord liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing. [11] Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel. [12] And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul. [13] And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth. [14] And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself.

(This was a familiar spirit that was masquerading as Samuel.) *Please see my other article, called “What is a Familiar Spirit” @ https://www.spiritualrealities.org

Witches believe in energy and psychic abilities.

They believe that we are all energy beings and connected through energy. That through this energy we can connect to each other and all things with our psychic senses and that these senses are part of all nature and that all people have these senses within them.

This is not found in scripture, and this is also a new age belief.

What witches believe about God? (VERY IMPORTANT and central to the Christian Faith)

Witches believe/revere in both gods and the goddess.

(Bible describes these as False Gods)

The Bible explicitly describes God as a male figure. All throughout scripture, God is referred to as “He”, or “Father”.

What do Christians believe about God?

The Bible says there is only one true God. The God is Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The same God described in the Holy Bible.

Exodus 20:2-5 KJVS

[2] I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. [3] Thou shalt have no other gods before me. [4] Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: [5] Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

1 Timothy 2:5 KJVS

[5] For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Isaiah 44:6 KJVS

[6] Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

Isaiah 44:8-11 KJVS

[8] Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it ? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any . [9] They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed. [10] Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing? [11] Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.

What do Christians believe about death and the afterlife?

As seen in Luke 16, the rich man that died and went to hell immediately. And a beggar named Lazarus that was immediately carried to heaven (Abraham’s bosom) by angels.

Luke 16:22-31 KJV

[22] And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; [23] And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. [24] And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. [25] But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. [26] And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. [27] Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: [28] For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. [29] Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. [30] And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. [31] And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

Do witches believe in hell?

No. They believe in a final eternal home called Summerlands. In which all people will live there, the good and the wicked.

Christians believe that when a person dies, their spirit immediately goes to either heaven (for the righteous) or hell (for the unrighteousness).

Witches believe in reincarnation

The Bible does not teach reincarnation.

Hebrews 9:27 KJV

[27] And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

The Bible teaches that Jesus is our blessed hope

Our hope and promise is that we will be ressurected to eternal life with Jesus after we die.

Acts 24:14-15 KJVS

[14] But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: [15] And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

God’s Holy Word:

A person that believes that they can be both a Christian and a witch, do not believe what Gods word says. They reject scripture.

The God of the Bible says that scripture is essential! The Bible tells us to test everything with scripture!

2 Timothy 2:15 KJV

[15] Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Acts 17:11 KJV

[11] These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Christianity has not changed. The Bible also tells us to not lean on our own understanding.

Proverbs 3:5-7 KJV

[5] Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. [6] In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. [7] Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord , and depart from evil.

People say, well, the Bible means different things to different people… the Bible says that scripture is not for private interpretation.

2 Peter 1:20 KJV

[20] Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

Everyone might not understand everything in the Bible, we are all learning.. but if you truly pray and ask God for understanding of certain issues, he will show it to us. Then there are people who cannot know the things of the spirit because they are not of the spirit.

People spend millions of dollars on books, counselors, classes, etc to find answers to life’s questions, when in reality, it’s all in God’s word!

All of this doubt that we see today, in Gods word, and coming against Gods word, is of the devil.

The devil has come against Gods word since the beginning.. when he asked Eve in the garden, “hath God really said”?

And just like when Eve gave place to the devil, by heeding to this doubt, and rebelled against God.. it led to the fall of man. and death. Which is what will happen to us if we die in disbelief. The enemy is not our friend.. he aims to kill us, and to take us to hell with him.

If you are a true Christian, this verse will be ESSENTIAL to your faith. Do you believe the following verse?

Acts 4:12 KJVS

[12] Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

And that name is Jesus Christ!!

If the answer is “no”, then you are not a true Christ follower/Christian.

Sozo Inner Healing, In Light of Scripture

Video Link Here>>>>

SOZO In Light of Scripture

It is with my truest intentions,  and with the utmost humility and love for others, that I explain in this blog and video, why “Sozo Inner Healing” is not of God. It is not biblical, and it actually leads people deeper into bondage than they already were into, before they sought help.

One might ask, “How do you know”?

I personally went to this inner healing counseling with someone close to me. We both participated in it. Did it bring freedom? No.

This technique called “Sozo Inner Healing” Emphasizes heavily on Experience, and De-Emphasizes on Doctrine. This is an extra biblical teaching, which is not found in the Bible, anywhere. The bible is our final authority and rule on all things, faith and practice. .

Some people claim that this concept of “creative guided visualization techniques” have brought them freedom.

This technique includes guided visualized “visits of Jesus” in your mind, where the counselor “acts as the mediator.” But scripture tells us, There is only one mediator between us and God, that is Jesus.

1 Timothy 2:5 KJV

[5] For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

My personal experience with SOZO:

During these sessions, the counselor encouraged me to imagine in my mind, the most traumatic event that took place in my life, and for me to imagine I was there again.. and he even asked me to look around in the room I was in, and he asked, “Is it the same room that this traumatic event took place in? And then, he told me to imagine the event that took place years ago. As I brought these thoughts to my mind, it was very emotional for me. I began to sob. I began to become angry at the person that did these horrific things to my family and It brought back memories that I never wanted to visit again. (Why would I?) After I became very emotional, the counselor then asked me to imagine Jesus, coming to the scene. The counselor even asked me to imagine what Jesus was wearing.. and kept asking me things like, “do you see Him yet?” , and “”what is he wearing, what color is his clothes”? He wanted me to focus on details so I could confirm to him that I was actually “seeing Jesus”. He kept encouraging me to try hard to imagine him there. During this time, he was “praying”to Jesus, asking Him to appear to me in my mind, so that he could “heal me”. Finally, Jesus showed up, in a white robe, and I imagined Him hugging me and my kids and telling us that “everything will be ok.” The session seemed somewhat emotional, and draining. It brought back old memories that I truly thought I had already healed from. If I was already healed from the past traumatic events, why would I be so disturbed by it all, once again? I began to question to myself… why have I never seen this kind of “healings” in the Bible?

The second session came. I was feeling a little uneasy about it. With my history of coming out of the occult and getting saved and born again, I didn’t want to fall into another trap of deception of the enemy. This just didn’t seem biblical. Why have I never heard of Jesus or the disciples ever healing people this way?

On this second session, I expressed to the counselor my concern regarding these inner healing sessions, and asked him lwhy I’ve not read about these types of healings in scripture. He acted slightly offended, and then brought up a few bible verses, which were less than convincing to me. But none the less, he acted as if I was just being too paranoid and that it was not surprising that I was acting that way because after all, I had been deceived once before in the occult, and later got out of it and had to get deliverance, and once again he assured me that these sessions were in fact biblical. I brought my grandson with me on this visit. He was probably around 5 yrs old at the time. I talked to the counselor and once again, he began to pray for me. Except this time, while he was praying, I started praying low, where he couldn’t hear me. I prayed to God, “Father, if this is not of you, I ask that you reveal it to me and show me. I ask that you protect me from any harm or from any evil spirits that may come through as a result, in Jesus name.”

Then as the session went along, as the counselor was trying to bring Jesus on the scene, I kept getting distracted because my grandson was making strange noises and talking to himself. I then noticed he was slithering around on the floor like a snake. Some people would have perhaps thought he was playing, but deep down I felt something could be going wrong. I stopped the counselor and asked him if he noticed what my grandson was doing, and he just simply said “yes”. I thought that maybe he would stop and ask to pray for my grandson, but he didn’t. So I stopped the session and told the counselor that I felt like something was wrong and I wanted to leave. I just knew in my heart that this was not of God and that it was truly opening up a door to the demonic and that it also affected my grandson. I felt that he was “manifesting” an evil spirit, that came trough during this session.

That same evening I prayed to God and renounced my involvement in these sessions and I asked my brother (which is a minister) to pray for us. I also had a local pastor pray for us, and we received deliverance.

There is nothing in scripture that suggests that we need to visualize “past traumatic events” that took place in our lives, in order to get healed of the emotional traumas once suffered.  People become deceived when they enter into a spiritual realm that they have no business delving into.

The visualized “Jesus” in this technique is the same as the spirit guides that the new Agers and spiritualists meditate on and communicate with. Just because something claims to have the name of Jesus does not mean it is indeed Jesus. The Bible warns about false Christs that will come, and false signs and wonders in the last days.

It’s very interesting to know that the Bible warns us that this “false Christ” that comes will masquerade as something good. And that if possible, it will deceive even “the elect”. What better way to do this than to minick Jesus Himself. You can’t deceive a Christian with something that “appears” as something evil. The best way for Satan to deceive a Christian would be to appear as something good.

This is how Satan deceived Eve. The fruit “looked good”.

2 Corinthians 11:14-15 KJV

[14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. [15] Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 KJV

[1] Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; [2] Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

In the book of revelations it talks about how the antichrist and false prophets will deceive many.. it will be false signs and wonders.. and the Bible also talks about how if possible, even the elect would be deceived. How would this be? A FALSE JESUS WITH FALSE SIGNS AND WONDERS!

Matthew 24:23-26 KJV

[23] Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. [24] For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. [25] Behold, I have told you before. [26] Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

Visual techniques are also designed for people to discover their “inner power” by giving them control of their own lives and destiny.

These demonic spirits come in by way of invitation, through these “visualization/meditation techniques”.

Demonic spirits (Familiar spirits) pose as angels, spirit guides, aliens, descended masters, earthbound spirits (including Mary, and apostles), animal spirits, big foot (and other mythical creatures), and yes, even Jesus. The “jesus” that is visualized during these inner healing sessions, is no different than what spiritualists call spirit guides.

Also, when we communicate with these familiar spirits, (for example, Mary and the saints) it is essentially the same thing as necromancy. Because as we know, the Bible says that when we die we are no longer here and it is impossible for the dead to speak to us. (Luke 16, 2 Corinthians 5:8, Hebrews 9:27) and therefore, any attempts of communicating with the dead is actually communication with familiar spirits.

Necromancy is a claimed form of magic involving communication with the deceased either by summoning their spirit as an apparition, or raising them bodily, for the purpose of divination, imparting the means to foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge. The term may sometimes be used in a more general sense to refer to black magic or witchcraft.

Common hinderance to true freedom:

Unforgiveness

When we suffer from past hurts (for example, sexual abuse, physical abuse, mental abuse, Rejection) and we have unforgiveness, it can cause depression, anger, drug abuse, alcoholism, addictive behaviors, etc.

Have we forgiven those that hurt us? How do we forgive, biblically? Jesus said seventy times seven.. and in the Bible, Jesus gives us an example of a daily prayer.. in which, he tells us we should ask God to forgive those that trespass against us, everyday, and that we need to forgive them “from the heart”. ( not only by word) The Bible tells us that if we do not forgive others, we can not be forgiven by God. It also says that if we don’t forgive others, God will “deliver us to the tormentors”, until we forgive others.

Matthew 18:33-35 KJV

[33] Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? [34] And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. [35] So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.

With the sozo healing techniques, the counselor will guide the client through a mental visualization of the client “going back to the time and place of a traumatic event” that took place earlier in their life, in which, the counselor feels is the source of the current problems client is having. This technique causes the person to have a flood of negative emotions, and feelings of hurt, in which is only a replay of the trauma they suffered before, except, during the visualization sessions, the counselor will now bring “Jesus” on the scene, (False Jesus) which will embrace the client and “heal them”. This technique only makes the person relive the trauma all over again, feel traumatized all over again, making them feel the flood of negative emotions that they felt when they actually went through the traumatic event earlier in their life. These sessions usually make the client feel emotionally exhausted and in reality, they become demonically oppressed even further, Demon possessed.

Philippians 3:13 KJVS

[13] Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do , forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before [14] I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

This sozo healing techniques is merely “masking” an old new age technique, except in this case, the spirit “guide”, is in the form of Jesus. Jesus does not operate this way. This is a false Jesus!

According to several online sources, Bill Johnson’s “Bethel Ministry” is one place where this practice originated from. They have also adapted to other new age techniques, such as:

False prophecy

Visualization

“Fire tunnels”

Grave soaking trips

Visualization, contemplative prayer, and meditation practices

Chanting, soaking, and spiritual drunkenness

“Toking” the Holy Ghost to get “high on Jesus”

They believe that “a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with a doctrine.”

Test The Spirits

We need to always test things with scripture. We are commanded to in the Bible.

1 John 4:1-6 KJVS

[1] Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. [2] Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: [3] 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. [4] Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. [5] They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. [6] 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.

Bad Fruit

The evil root of these techniques are demonic new age philosophy .. A bad tree cannot produce good fruit!

Matthew 7:15-23 KJVS

[15] Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. [16] Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? [17] Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. [18] A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. [19] Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. [20] Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. [21] Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. [22] 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? [23] And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

The “fruit” of any professed prophet would be their “teaching”. This would also apply with any pastor, teacher, or any other person who stands in the name of God.

This teaching is not based on biblical teachings. It is based on immediate experience, as the long term effect would result in further bondage and demonic oppression/or worse, possession.

How to get True Freedom

2 Corinthians 5:17-19 KJV
[17] Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. [18] And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; [19] To wit, thatGod was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

We do not need to perform any ritualistic techniques or guided imagery sessions, for the freedom Chris gives us!

One major problem with this “way of salvation” and deliverance, is the fact that it teaches that freedom comes from these visualization techniques, but do not hold to the true teaching in scriptures of salvation, and deliverance. There is no mention of repentance of sin in these techniques either. Many times, it is Sin that brings on our bondage! There is no possible way to get freedom if we do not repent of our sins, break generational curses, forgive others, submit to Jesus, and read God’s Word.

•Believe on Jesus

•We must submit to God fully,

*turning away from sin

*Forgive others

•Get deliverance

•Read His word everyday, as this is how the Holy Spirit transforms and renews our mind.

Seeking first the kingdom of God~
