The Dangers That We Face

danger

There are two kinds of danger in a Christian’s walk. As an illustration of these dangers, I will use different types of body of waters. 

  1. A lake
  2. An ocean

 In Scripture, water is used as a reference to nations, worldly people from all over the world [Revelation 17:15].

Let’s say one day you decide to go out to have a swim. You walk around and find a lake, but with closer inspection, it looks dirty and unclean. Mind you, a lake will not contain dangerous sea animals, big waves or currents to take you out to the deep. The danger lies in its contamination because of its still water. If while swimming any water enters the mouth, you will become dangerously ill. 

After thinking it over, you decide to continue until you see the ocean. the ocean is clean because the body of water is constantly moving through its current. When observing the beach, you noticed that the white sand in the water stops and it turns to a dark blue. You become aware that it is very deep near the shore and one can easily sink. It has pretty big waves and a current that will take you out into the deep. 

The lake represents secularism which is godless, homosexuals, lasciviousness, greed, self-centeredness, haters of God, transgenderism, Atheism, and the worship of demons through the occult. 

The ocean represents false Christians as it seems that the water is clean but it can drown your faith. It includes Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, The Seventh Day Adventist, Catholicism, The word of faith movement, Liberal Christianity, Oneness Pentecostal, Christadelphians, and churches that preach Preterism. 

Our walk must be based upon the Word of God so that we won’t find ourselves intaking doctrine that is contaminated or bringing confusion to our faith in Jesus Christ and stopping us from having a pure devotion to Christ.    

Wherever you turn in this world, there will be dangers. Don’t be dismayed for the Lord is with us to strengthen us so that we may continue in the faith, reaching out to those who are in danger to bring them out to safety through faith in Jesus Christ.

There Is A Spiritual Battle For Your Soul To Apostatize

Mediums

Mediums and any other spiritual guidance apart from the Bible pretend to be good but in reality, they are pure evil

Acts 16:16

Once, as we were on our way to prayer, a slave girl met us who had a spirit of prediction. She made a large profit for her owners by fortune-telling.

Behind every medium, fortune-teller, spiritist, palm reader, and any other occultic practices is a demon with that person.

It doesn’t stop there. False teachers, Idols, or any New Age books are accompanied by demonic entities.

False teachers:

1 Kings 13:16-19 

16 But he answered, “I cannot go back with you, eat bread, or drink water with you in this place, 17 for a message came to me by the word of the Lord: ‘You must not eat bread or drink water there or go back by the way you came.’” 18 He said to him, “I am also a prophet like you. An angel spoke to me by the word of the Lord: ‘Bring him back with you to your house so that he may eat bread and drink water.’” The old prophet deceived him, 19 and the man of God went back with him, ate bread in his house, and drank water.

Idols

1 Corinthians 10:14-21

14 Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. 15 I am speaking as to wise people. Judge for yourselves what I say. 16 The cup of blessing that we give thanks for, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for all of us share that one bread. 18 Look at the people of Israel. Do not those who eat the sacrifices participate in what is offered on the altar? 19 What am I saying then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20 No, but I do say that what they sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God. I do not want you to participate with demons! 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot share in the Lord’s table and the table of demons.

New Age books & Extra-biblical sources

1 Timothy 4:1-2

Now the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will depart from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, 2 through the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared.

Matthew 15:1-9

Then Pharisees and scribes came from Jerusalem to Jesus and asked, 2 “Why do Your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they don’t wash their hands when they eat!” 3 He answered them, “And why do you break God’s commandment because of your tradition? 4 For God said:

Honor your father and your mother; and,
The one who speaks evil of father or mother
must be put to death.

5 But you say, ‘Whoever tells his father or mother, “Whatever benefit you might have received from me is a gift committed to the temple”— 6 he does not have to honor his father.’ In this way, you have revoked God’s word because of your tradition. 7 Hypocrites! Isaiah prophesied correctly about you when he said:

8 These people honor Me with their lips,
but their heart is far from Me.
9 They worship Me in vain,
teaching as doctrines the commands of men.”

This is why I strongly encourage all of my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus to always have the Full Armor of God on (Ephesians 6:10-18). We live in dangerous times and you are a marked person. The evil spirits won’t stop until you are destroyed. Jesus is our only hope and strength. We have overcome the demonic forces by placing our faith in Jesus and holding tight to the Word of God. That is our weapon and our spiritual food. As long as we continue to mirror God’s Word in our life, we will overcome darkness with Christ’s righteousness.

If we neglect Scripture, we will be in trouble. The only way we can get closer to Jesus is through His Word. Remember that. Don’t ever forget it.

May the Lord Jesus Christ give all of His children a hunger and thirst for His righteousness.

Christians Under Attack: Spiritual Battles Seen Through Spiritual Eyes

christianbattle2

Imagine if you can see the spiritual warfare and battles between demons and Christians through spiritual eyes. This is how I see that war and battles fought in the fields of our minds.

Europe at one time was strong in the Lord, not without faults, but nevertheless, they held to the Word so let’s see that with spiritual eyes.

It was very early in the morning with fog all over the place. The Christian’s camp was behind a wall of long thick trees for protection against the enemy’s arrows. Christian watchmen were in place and you could hear absolutely nothing but the wind. From the distance, a watchman saw a small light heading to his direction. Amazed by this light he stayed still until it was too late. The arrow with fire at the tip struck the man’s neck and bleeding from his mouth he quickly ran to another watchman close by and died in his presence.

The other watchman with his eyes wide open heard the battle cry of demons running toward the camp to slaughter the Christians so this man (the watchman), ran for dear life to the camp to warn the Christians of an impending attack. Immediately a call to arms went throughout the camp and Christians were putting on the full armor of God. All the believers got in battle formation. They were like the sand of the seashore with beautiful silver shiny armor with each name of the armor engraved in each piece of armor. Christian soldiers who were assigned to prayer went ahead of the army of God knelt down in prayer to the Lord of lords and King of kings Jesus Christ, to ask for His protection and strength. The demons got in battle formation and a call went out for the demon archers to get ready. Arrow tips ignited with fire and the command was given to fire. The Lord was there with the Christians fighting their battle and a strong wind blew from the Lord so strong that all of the fiery arrows were blown right back to the demonic army who had to take cover from their own arrows. While they were taking cover, the Lord gave the command to attack and all the Christians ran to meet the dark army in battle. The cry was so loud it made the demonic army go into confusion running in all different directions. There was such a great slaughter that day only a few demons made out of the slaughter. Christians were victorious that day because the Lord fought their battle and won.

We win battles because we keep God’s Word and live according to it but now since the Devil knows he can’t do a frontal attack, he has to do a stealth one to kill us spiritually from within by taking us away from God’s Word and disarming us.

Numbers 25:1-3
While Israel was staying in the Acacia Grove, the people began to have sexual relations with the women of Moab. 2 The women invited them to the sacrifices for their gods, and the people ate and bowed in worship to their gods. 3 So Israel aligned itself with Baal of Peor, and the Lord’s anger burned against Israel.

Numbers 31:16
Yet they are the ones who, at Balaam’s advice, incited the Israelites to unfaithfulness against the LORD in the Peor incident, so that the plague came against the LORD’s community.

The verses above show how Satan destroys the believer in Jesus by hitting him from the side instead of the front so he won’t suspect it.

Islam is a device from Satan to bring fear and political correctness to shut the mouths of Christians speaking God’s Word which is a Satanic tactic so people won’t hear the truth. Homosexuality is being used by Satan to make Christians abandon God’s moral law in their lives which is found in the Word of God and the Devil is making so-called Christians through pressure from society conform to unbiblical views by accepting homosexuality as not being a sin. Europe is destroyed and Satan’s focus is now America. Whoever abandons God’s Word will get deceived and their soul destroyed.
