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.

Why Wouldn’t Jesus Allow The Demon To Say Who He Was?

The demon whispering lies to a false teacher

Mark 1:23-26

23 Just then a man with an unclean spirit was in their synagogue. He cried out, 24 “What do You have to do with us, Jesus—Nazarene? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!” 25 But Jesus rebuked him and said, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” 26 And the unclean spirit convulsed him, shouted with a loud voice, and came out of him.

Why wouldn’t Jesus allow the demon to say the truth about who He was?

What we first have to understand is even if a false teacher says or teaches one part of Scripture correctly and we accept it, we unknowingly will give him legitimacy as being a true Christian or even worse, God is using him. Those who witness us accept it will think that it is okay to believe some of their teachings as from the Holy Spirit, even though a false teacher does not have the Holy Spirit. Remember, false teachers are used by demons (1 Timothy 4:1-3) and their purpose is to teach the truth with small lies. Deception sounds like the truth and if we are not in the Word we won’t be able to see his true intentions behind his message. By accepting a teaching from someone who is false, you are putting yourself in danger and others to be deceived.

Never ever receive a doctrine, even if it sounds correct from a person that you know full well believes in unbiblical doctrines because it will always contain lies.

Let me illustrate it this way. When we go fishing, we must first deceive the fish with the bait. The bait is real but wrapped over a deadly hook. The fisherman allows the fish to nibble on the bait which is seemingly harmless until it tries to swallow all of it and in the process gets hooked. 

That is how a false teacher directed by demons work. They will give you the truth as they hear it from true Christians because believe me, they didn’t get it from the Holy Spirit since they are devoid of Him. Once you have accepted some of their teachings, they will introduce their erroneous ones and it will be more palatable for you to receive it.

Now, we understand why Jesus didn’t accept the demon’s confession because the demon wasn’t really there to promote Jesus, just like a false teacher.

If Jesus would have allowed the demon to speak and proclaim who He was without the demon being rebuked by Him, it would have been easier for the evil spirit to deceive the crowd. Once the demon saw that they believed him, he would have introduced a false narrative of Jesus to deceive them all. 

1 John 4:1

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Verse By Verse Through Revelation (16:11-15)

11 and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, yet they did not repent of their actions.

The people who received the mark of the beast (666) cursed God instead of repenting which confirmed that they were committed to Satan even though they knew that God had defeated their leader, the Antichrist. He was of no help to those whom he deceived against God’s judgments.


12 The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the east.

The phrase, “The sixth poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates” refers to the stage being prepared for the heaven and earth war, see Revelation 19:19.


13 Then I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming from the dragon’s mouth, from the beast’s mouth, and from the mouth of the false prophet.

This three unholy trinity will give the command to send out demons into the four corners of the earth to deceive those who are in a high position to mobilize them with an enormous army to fight against Jesus Christ with His army when He comes to earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords, see Revelation 20:1-2, 4..


14 For they are spirits of demons performing signs, who travel to the kings of the whole world to assemble them for the battle of the great day of God, the Almighty.

It seems that the leaders are only convinced through signs and miracles. That is why deception is so effective. It takes your focus away from the Biblical Truth and into the sign being performed.

This is exactly what is occurring within the Catholic Church, they see the statues of Mary crying blood, images in the skies but yet, they disregard the warning of Holy Scripture against idolatry.


15 “Look, I am coming like a thief. The one who is alert and remains clothed so that he may not go around naked and people see his shame is blessed.”

The word alert and clothed refers to the same thing. It means to make sure that you are walking in step with the Word of God and are watchful through prayer.

Insight: Naked

Nakedness in Scripture refers to sin (Isaiah 47:3).
