The Truth About Magic, A Power of Darkness5

~By Dana Emanuel

When people think of magic, they usually think of the kind of magic that is nothing more than “parlor tricks”, these are illusionary tricks, that are carefully planned out, to make it “appear” as if the person performing the magic has “supernatural powers of the mind”, But in fact, they do not.

But then, there is a type of “magic”, that involves true “supernatural” powers. Many believe that these powers come from one’s own mind. (Psychokinesis) This theory is technically labeled as “pseudoscience”, as it has been unfounded as it has not been proven scientifically.

Psychokinesis, commonly known as “PK”, is believed to be, the ability of using only the mind, Consciously or unconsciously with no physical intervention, to manipulate physical objects.

This concept of has been employed by humans through magic, curious arts,!witchcraft, sorcery, and spiritism, The practice of magic is not new. There is nothing new under the sun. This has been employed as far back as when the bible was recorded. The Bible strongly prohibits using these practices, and for a very good reason, which I will explain further along.

The Spiritual World,  A True Reality

Besides our physical world, that we can see, hear, feel, and taste, there is also a spiritual world. When supernatural occurrences happen, it can not be scientifically explained, or tested in a laboratory. We can oftentimes “observe” supernatural (spiritual) occurrences when they happen, but no one can “physically” prove what the source truly is. But, we do however, have God’s Word, which tells us all that we need to know regarding the spiritual world.

Supernatural magic, is not the work of the human mind. It is done with supernatural spiritual powers, but these powers are not of God. God does not perform “parlor tricks”.

Powers Of Darkness

I find it very interesting to know that many “magicians” actually admit to the fact that thier supernatural powers are the works of “supernatural spirits/spirit energies”.
One magician in particular, named Mike Super, performed on the TV show, “America’s Got Talent”. He performed magic using a voodoo doll, and he also appeared to teleport from one location on stage, to another area in the room in a matter of a few seconds. He admits openly that his magic “phenomenon” is done with the help of his “spirit energy friend” named “Dezment”.
He says that it all started when he was a child, at about the age of 6. He said this spirit used to write on his chalkboard, “I am Dezment”. He said this happened several times, until he finally answered back, “Hello Dezment”. He said that after he answered back, other things started happening. He says that “Dezment” is the one that caused his magic to happen.

He said that if “Dezment” does not “show up”, then nothing will happen.

Once, a man named Manly P. Hall, a 33rd degree Freemason, confessed that all successful magicians were aided by demonic entities in his book, “ The Secret Teachings of All Ages”.

His teachings have been adopted by all mainstream magicians.

The following steps are explained in his book.

1. The magicians have come to accept that the visible universe has an invisible counterpart meaning they truly believe in the habitation of good and evil spirits in our relm and the next.
2. By means of the secret processes of black magic it is possible to contact these invisible entities and gain their help in some human undertaking.
3. it is possible to make contacts with spirits whereby the magician becomes for a stipulated time the master of an elemental being, known as a demon.
4. True black magic is performed with the aid of a demonic spirit who serves the sorcerer for the length of his earthly life, while understanding that after death, the magician shall become the servant of his own demon.

BD42E6C2-4DAF-47D8-8C19-A3B1FBACA97D

These people are truly “selling thier souls” to demonic spirits, in exchange for the supernatural powers for the length of thier earthly life.

The Bible tells us not to practice magic, sorcery, witchcraft, or use divination. There are reasons for God’s Laws. His laws are in place to protect us. When we attempt to use magic or sorcery, it is not the power of God that manifests during these practices. It is the work of demonic spirits. These spirits are here to steal, kill, and destroy. If we disobey God, and yield to using these practices, we will reap the demonic oppression , or perhaps even possession, that will come as a result.

Satan, The Counterfeiter

Satan tries to counterfeit all things of God.

Isaiah 14:12-14 KJVS

[12] How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! [13] For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: [14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

One of those things that he tries to counterfeit, is the supernatural miracles performed by God.  The Bible talks about a place called Ephesus, where God wrought special miracles by the hands of Apostle Paul. While some unbelievers seen these miracles, they tried to do miracles themselves, but without knowing Jesus Christ. One miracle in particular that they tried, was to cast an evil spirit out of a man. Thier attempts failed. When they tried casting the evil spirit out of a man, they were overtaken by him, and beaten, naked, and wounded. After this happened, those that heard about it, realized the truth and came to believe in Jesus Christ, as they found that true miracles and wonders were only done by the authority of Jesus, the true Son of God.

AC0F1C93-9D10-423A-B557-07BC69F96B8C

Acts 19:17-20 KJV
[17] And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. [18] And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. [19] Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men : and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. [20] So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

Galatians 5:19-21 KJV
[19] Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these ; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, [20] Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, [21] Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Revelation 21:8 KJV
[8] But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Magic Vs. Miracles

Supernatural Magic is the work of  demons. Some people may think that magic and miracles are the same thing, but there is a very distinct difference between the two. Magic is the work of demons, and it is always aimed at glorifying ones self.

Miracles on the other hand, are the supernatural work of God. He works miracles because He loves His people, and He also does them, so that people may come to believe. (Exodus 4:1-9),  He also does it to glorify Himself,

Closing Statement:

Many people are seeking a sign.. they are waiting to see some kind of miracle, when the greatest miracle of all is staring them right in the face. God’s love for us, as revealed to us, in the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is the ultimate miracle that defies explanation.

Hope For All Who Repent

It is important to know that it is never “too late” for a person that repents and turns to Jesus.  Jesus paid the ultimate price for our souls, and that if those that are practicing magic, we’re to repent of these practices, and submit to Jesus fully, and believe on Him, they can be saved and have eternal life with Him.

Spirit Communication, a Demonic Invitation

Spirit Communication, a Demonic Invitation, by Dana Emanuel

Sitting in front of the television set,  flipping through the channels, chances are, you will find at least one show on, that involves some sort of spirit communications. With so many shows dedicated to “paranormal investigations”, or Psychic phenomena, one could easily understand why Spirit Communications is accepted by society, and why most people see no harm in it. And while it is heavily pushed by the media, the church remains quiet. No one is speaking about it in the church. The statistics of how many Christians that sit in churches every week, but yet believe in earthbound spirits, would most likely be somewhat of a shocking number… considering what the Bible actually says about it.

All spirit communication techniques are against Gods Word. All spirit communication involves contact with demonic spirits.

355E1192-3723-48AF-B090-375EDE7828C0.jpeg

I often shake my head when I hear ghost hunters warn against the use of ouija boards. What they do not understand is, that ALL forms of spirit communications are an abomination to God according to the Bible. Using an ouija board is no different than using dowsing rods, a pendulum, tarot cards, ghost meters, trigger objects, or even a simple voice recorder. Realistically, they all do the same thing. They are all used with the intention of communicating with the “dead”.

201B00FD-5BB0-4062-B256-FC30111EB876.jpeg

There are different reasons why people attempt to communicate with the dead.  Probably the most common reason would be because of the grief one feels after losing thier loved ones, and thier desire to have contact with them. Wanting so badly to feel that they are still here with them.

EA36BD86-BA70-4902-A269-0C2E0116DD18.jpeg

Another reason would be, our natural fear of death; and curiosity of what is in store for us in the hereafter.

Unresolved issues is also a reason people attempt to communicate with the dead. These issues could range from unanswered questions from our deceased loved ones,  or it could be things such as unresolved crime related issues. An example could be police officers that contact psychics in an attempt to gain information related to crimes committed, surrounding the death of an individual.

E03D50C8-6D9C-4499-A913-EB1C71EC19A3.jpeg

Another reason would be an unhealthy attraction to darkness.  There can be a thrill in becoming fearful in certain situations.  An example of this could be when someone wants to watch a scary movie, and they find themselves, under covers with one eye peeking around the sheet that is in thier clinched fist, daring to watch the whole movie, but when the scene gets too scary, they pull the sheet over both thier eyes, but only to pull the sheet back away again, only seconds later, attempting to watch it again. There is a thrilling factor to it. But that “scary feeling” we get when we do these things is our natural feelings and conscience, that tells us, it’s not good, and that it is rather evil.

B12752CC-F14C-4466-9DE8-A458915C67C7.jpeg

Ghost hunting also has a thrilling effect, (an euphoria effect). There is something about sitting in a dark room, with all the “up to date” ghost hunting gadgets, daring to do what others are too afraid of doing. Feeling somewhat like a “Spiritual daredevil”. Challenging one’s fearful side.

Sometimes we come across “ghost hunters” that become provocative when communicating with these spirits. They will try to “challenge” these spirits.
This is exceptionally dangerous. Why is this dangerous one might ask? Because spirits have not flesh and blood as we have. We cannot fight a spiritual battle using physical weapons.  These spirits are only subject to Jesus. They can only do what God allows them to do. (Job 1:9-12)

A9F80E76-9395-4312-A73F-70EC7F5DF885

The only time a human has authority over demonic spirits, is when they are born again, believers in Jesus Christ, that are in obedience to Gods Word.

*Mark 16:17, Jesus gives specific instructions to all believers, telling them that all those who believe in The name of Jesus, will have the authority to cast out devils…
Jesus only gives this “authority” to cast out demons, to believers. Unbelievers do not have that right.
For example;

*Acts 19:13-16 the vagabond Jews, exorcists took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus saying we Adjure you by Jesus, who Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said Jesus I know and Paul I know but who are you? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.

As I stated above, “The only time a human has authority over demonic spirits, is when they are born again, believers in Jesus Christ, that are in obedience to Gods Word.”

The reason I mentioned “ in obedience to Gods Word”, is because, even if we claim to believe in Jesus, if we dabble in the occult, by doing things that God forbids us to do, we are in danger. In doing these things, in a sense, we are leaving God’s umbrella of protection.

*Proverbs 1:33 KJV
[33] But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

If the enemy merely showed himself as the evil being that he really is, people would do whatever it took to avoid him. But the fact is, he is very deceptive and he will use whatever tactic that best suits you, to destroy you. He “sifts us as wheat”. The enemy comes but to steal, kill, and destroy.

9EEEF8CF-6C47-4907-A549-ACD6C4AF9032.jpeg

God forbids necromancy, and divination in His holy Word. Some often wonder, “ why is it wrong to talk to my deceased loved one, I’m not hurting anything by doing this”?
But the truth is, all of Gods “laws/commandments” are in place for our own protection. It’s not because he wants to withhold anything “good” from us, but instead, to protect us from something bad.

God tells us in His Word, that when we die, we immediately go to either heaven, or hell. And the Bible says that once someone in in heaven or hell, that there is a “great gulf”, fixed in place, that makes it impossible for those that are in either place, to return to earth, even if it is to go warn (or talk to) the living. (Luke 16:19-31)

So, if these spirits are not the departed spirits of our deceased loved ones, who, or what are they? The Bible tells us in 2 Corinthians 11:14, that we should take no marvel, for “Satan himself is transformed as an angel of light”

914AB4E5-A344-4D9A-9FCA-2A49CA7238CE.jpeg
Demonic spirits will mimic the dead. These are called “Familar Spirits”. Familiar spirits are familiar with the person they mimic, as they have followed that family down through the generations, which is the reason why they know so much about the deceased person and their family.

And the Bible tells us, that they will deceive and defile us. (Lev.19-31, Deut.18:10, 2Chronicles 33:6, Lev.20:6, Isa.19:3, Isa.8:19)
In Isaiah, it says:
Isaiah 8:19, And when they Say unto you seek not  them that have familiar spirits and onto wizards a peep and that mutter: should not a people seek onto their God? For the living to the dead?
God wants us to seek him regarding the dead. He gives us all truth in His word. On the other hand, the familiar spirits lie, and will tell us things that are not true. Things that directly conflict with Gods Word. The belief in earthbound spirits alone, is an attack on God’s Word and His truth. This belief is contrary to what the Bible tells us, one example would be, that when unsaved people die, they do not go to hell.
(It takes away the fear of hell)

It gives a false sense of hope to unbelievers, while it takes away the true hope given to the believers.

69E93329-668A-4816-9172-C84F26A2CD1C.jpeg

This is the reason God forbids necromancy, and divination. Satan is here to try to deceive us, and he will masquerade as our deceased loved ones. You see, he always mimics something “good”. Something that will appeal to us. He wants to gain our trust.

When you have a person that is suffering from the grief of losing someone dear to them, the enemy will take advantage of the opportunity, and try to deceive them. This is why in most cases, people will “experience” paranormal activity right after someone they know dies. People want so badly to be able to hold onto their loved ones while it is very difficult for them to accept the fact that they are no longer here. This is a very cruel tactic of the enemy.

Weighing the Evidence:

It’s very interesting to know how many “ghost hunters”, “psychics”, etc., truly rely on their own senses, and trust what these spirits “tell them”. When coming to a conclusion in “paranormal cases”, the evidence that is always presented as “proof” of ghosts (earthbound spirits of our departed loved ones) include things such as:
*EVP recordings (having to trust in what the spirits tell them)
*Photographs of paranormal anomalies (familiar spirits can “appear” as ghost)
*Temperature readings of the area during the investigation.
*EMF readings (again, this can be manipulated by demonic spirits)
*Video footage of paranormal activity.
*Information given through a medium or psychic. (Demonic spirits are known to do this, as even many in the paranormal/psychic community agree that these occurrences do happen at times, but they deny the possibility that this is perhaps always the case.)
All of the types of evidence above, are determined by using our natural senses.

But where the deception comes in is this… when we determine the presence of a “spirit”, we do not have the “natural” ability to distinguish whether the spirit is that of a deceased loved one, or if the spirit is truly demonic. And we cannot go by our own “feelings” either, as the Bible tells us:
Proverbs 14:12 KJV
[12] There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Jeremiah 17:9 KJV
[9] The heart is deceitful above all things , and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Proverbs 3:5 KJV
[5] Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Therefore, we must seek God’s word, and what he says. His word tells us,

2 Corinthians 5:8 KJV
[8] We are confident, I say , and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

It also says,
Hebrews 9:27 KJV
[27] And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

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.
The scripture above, from Luke 16, is very clear. It tells us that immediately, when we die, we are either carried by angels to heaven, or we will lift up our eyes being in everlasting torment. It also tells us that there is a great gulf “fixed” in place, so that anyone in heaven or hell cannot leave.
And most importantly, this scripture tells us that God will not allow one to come back from the dead, even if it is to warn others. And if God were to have any exceptions to this rule, it would definitely be for the gospels sake, as there is not a more important message than the gospel.

A9C83DA3-6200-4AD0-AAC8-59B92A7563FD.jpeg

Testing The Spirits:

Humans are limited, having to depend on our natural senses. We have a “flawed” nature. Naturally, we determine truth by our “experiences”, through our 5 senses. Some people believe in a 6th sense, but this “sense”, is something that cannot be explained naturally. This phenomenon is supernatural, and actually comes from the spiritual realm. But we must take caution, as there is no true way to determine scientifically/naturally, if it comes from God, or if it comes from the demonic realm. God gives “believers” different gifts. But these gifts are from the Holy Spirit. One of those gifts are “discerning of spirits”. But the “test” that the individual would do, would be to test the situation or the information given, by the Word of God. Does the information given line up with scripture.

Many people believe that “discerning of spirits”is the distiquishment of whether a spirit is a trapped “human” spirit, or a demonic spirit. But this idea is not biblical as it is not found in  scripture! Rather, it is used to distinguish between teachers who are empowered by Holy Spirit or teachers empowered by unholy spirits/demons.. spirit of antichrist.

For example, if a spirit appeared to someone, and claimed to be the spirit of a small child, immediately, the person would know this isn’t possible, because the Bible clearly tells us that spirits cannot leave heaven or hell for unresolved issues. So the person would know that this is a familiar spirit.

1 John 4:1-6 KJV
[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.

If for any reason, you believe the spirits of our departed loved ones are indeed still here with us, please do this one thing. “Test the spirits”, to see if they are of God or not. We need to compare the situation and what is being said, with scripture! And if for some reason, you have an “encounter” with a spirit, you can ask the spirit, “Do you believe that Jesus Christ came in the flesh, and that He died on the cross and rose again from the dead? And see what the spirit tells you. And then, command any, and all evil spirits to leave in the name of Jesus!

If you do these things, be rest assured, you will find out the true identity of these demonic spirits, that are masquerading as our deseased loved ones.

When people test these spirits this way, the reactions of these spirits  and thier submission to the name of Jesus is usually all it takes, as this is proof of the authority and power of Jesus Christ,  and the true identity of these demonic spirits!

Spiritual Cleansing Techniques, And Why They Don’t Work

The Truth regarding Spiritual Cleansing Techniques and Why They Don’t Work,
By Dana Emanuel

Spiritual Cleansing Techniques and Why They Don’t Work

Before I became a true born again Christian, I was an avid “paranormal investigator”, and the founder of a “paranormal research team”. As part of the paranormal “research”, I had an excessive amount of paranormal equipment such as CCVT Stationary camera and monitor set, infrared digital cameras, audio recorders, EMF pump, EMF meters, IR temp meters, and goes boxes, Ouija boards, etc.
Along with the “investigative equipment”, I carried a small case that contained my “Protection” and House clearing supplies. In this case, I had items such as Sage, candles, rosary beads, holy water, salt, cards that had the “Micheal the archangel” protection prayers printed on them for my team members, and to give to “clients”. These items are common items used by different religions, such as Wiccans, Pagans, Shamans, or even by some religions that guise under the umbrella of “Christianity”, for example, Catholic exorcists.

F288F717-4983-4E20-AF64-9BC4B7E9C003

By using items that were commonly used by several different types of “religions” techniques, I was practicing religious “Syncretism”.

Syncretism, as defined by the American Heritage Dictionary, is “the reconciliation or fusion of differing systems of belief.” This is most evident in the areas of philosophy and religion, and usually results in a new teaching or belief system. Obviously, this cannot be reconciled to biblical Christianity. **(Which I would later find out the reason why, as it is because Jesus is truly the only way, and HE is the true deliverer)

As an ex-paranormal investigator, one of my main objectives while I was in the field of paranormal research, was to “ help others” that were being tormented by evil spirits, and often times, we were asked to “rid a home or place of negative energies/spirits”. Although I identified myself as a Christian (as I went to church often my whole life, but it did not reflect on the way I was living, hence my involvement in the occult). I was a Jesus “believer”, but not a Jesus “follower”. As part of my research, I was not looking in the Bible for answers on how to do these spirit banishments/house clearings. I was seeking for the answers from other people in the paranormal community, and at the local bookstores.
At these bookstores, I found many books on the subject of “ghosts” or paranormal activity. And almost always, I would find at least one chapter in those books dedicated to instructions on “how to cleanse a home of ghosts/demonic spirits/negative energies, etc.”. While no two books are exactly the same, they usually always pretty much gave very similar instructions of certain “techniques” accepted and used by the paranormal community. They included techniques such as: burning sage, black candle banishments, placing salt in a house and/or outside at each corner around property lines, burning tourmaline, while some use items that are often “associated” with the Christian faith, such as rosary beads, holy water, prayers to Micheal the archangel, or placing bibles or crosses in rooms that are believed to have paranormal activity. Although these specific techniques were often “associated” with Christianity, they were not actually biblical.

I found that in all the cases we followed up on, where we used these items, the “spirits” (demons) would “seem” to leave, but we would often find out that the “clients” would report that the paranormal activity eventually returned.

But why was this? This is something I would not find out the answer to, until the day of my deliverance, in Feb. 2011.

After I was in the occult ( paranormal field ) for many years, it came a time where my home became a spiritual war zone. I had experienced paranormal activity in several homes we lived in through the years, but it finally came a time when these “spirits” that were, for the majority of the time, usually never threatening or negative, suddenly were very negative, threatening, and ultimately became even physical! It was interesting though, that these spirits “became” negative around the same time that I started to figure out that the “ghostly spirits” we interacted with, were truly demonic spirits that were actually mimicking the dead. As this is actually what the Bible teaches.

The Bible teaches that when a person dies, they immediately go to either heaven or hell, depending on if they are a believer or nonbeliever, and that once a person is in heaven or hell, that it is not possible for them to come back to visit or to warn the living. (See Luke 1619-31 KJV)

When these spirits become so negative and aggressive, I became desperate. They were not only tormenting me, but also they were tormenting a few of my family members! I tried all of the techniques I learned to use. But none worked! With my Christian background, I usually used items such as crosses, rosary beads, and I even had opened bibles in every room of our house. I hung rosary beads over every door and window, and every time one of us would get attacked, We would command the spirit to leave in the “name of Jesus”! Everything would stop, but these attacks would always return yet another night. I just could not get rid of it, no matter what I tried. I began to pray to God more, and seek him about it, as I was at a point of desperation.

I started researching online more about true biblical deliverance, and listened to some deliverance ministers on internet radio talk about deliverance and casting demons out. I also watched testimonial videos of others that went through it. (Such as Laura Maxwell, and other ex-occultists) So, I decided that perhaps I should take my husband (as he was the one that suffered a majority of the attacks) to a church to try to see if they could help us. We went to a local church. After the service was over, we walked down and talked to the assistant pastor, and I told him about the attacks. I explained to him that I was a “paranormal Investigator”, and that it was possible that I may have brought home an “attachment of a negative spirit”, from a previous investigation I did. He told me immediately that I needed to stop my involvement in the occult. When he said this, I was not clear on what he meant as I did not think that my paranormal research was in anyway related to the occult. But it was because it involved divination, necromancy and the fact that when people die, their spirit is no longer here, earthbound. He explained that I was actually engaging with demonic spirits. And he told me that by my involvement with the occult, that this was an open door and invitation for the demonic spirits to attack me and my household. He then looked over at my husband and noticed that my husband had on a rosary bead necklace. And he asked him why he was wearing it. My husband and I both started to explain to him that it was for protection and I told him how we had rosary beads hanging up in my house, over all of the doors and windows, and I also told him about all the Bibles I had in my house, in every room. He asked my husband to take off the necklace and my husband complied. I asked him why he wanted him to take it off. He then explained to us that when you put your faith “In an object”, you are taking your faith “off Jesus”. He said that we need to have faith in Jesus, and in Jesus alone!!! Suddenly it all made sense to me that this was why all of the other things I was using was not working and the reason why that when I did use the name of Jesus, the spirits would leave, but then they would always return. And they were in our home because of my involvement in the occult.

I made the decision that day, at that moment, to follow Christ, and to leave the occult, and after he prayed for us, I went home, got rid of all my paranormal equipment, and anything else I felt convicted of having in my home. We NEVER had anymore paranormal activity!

The Bibles that I had open in my house, had no power, as the only way it gives us power, is when we “apply it to our lives”!

There is only true safety in Christ and when we are obedient to him and his word. When we are disobedient to Him, we are leaving his umbrella of protection. He loves us and tries to warn us in his holy word, about the ramifications of sin, and what sin does to us. He tries to protect us with his loving guidance and warnings In his word.

I praise God for truly delivering and saving me that day!

As a result of my experiences and deliverance, I learned a few valuable things.

I learned that you cannot use physical objects to fight a spiritual battle. And that there is only one authority in or under heaven that can crush spiritual darkness, and that is Jesus Christ! And we must be a believer in Him, and we must follow Him. as HE is the TRUE LIGHT. The Bible also tells us clearly, that our weapons of warfare are not “carnal”… but spiritual. There are no wooden crosses, salt, or even holy water, that will save or deliver us. Only Jesus has full authority over these unclean spirits, and the amazing thing is.. He gave US full authority over them too, in HIS NAME!

2 Corinthians 10:4-6 KJV

[4] (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) [5] Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; [6] And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Mark 1:27 KJV

[27] And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

Luke 9:1 KJV

[1] Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

Mark 16:15-19 KJV

[15] And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. [16] He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. [17] And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; [18] They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. [19] So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

I also learned that the Holy Bible is truly Gods written and inspired Word, and our only true source of information regarding spiritual warfare and all other things that pertain to this life.
