Disarmed or not Armed at All?
“Listen! I have given you authority, so that you can walk on snakes and scorpions and overcome all the power of the Enemy, and nothing will hurt you. But don’t be glad because the evil spirits obey you; rather be glad because your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:19-20
Another thing disturbing about the paranormal shows communicating with spirits is that they disarm people, and influence them to believe that those things are not harmful. On many shows I have heard participants say “they won’t bother you: just exist with them.” If it was that easy to exist with them they would not have the show. They would not have people calling them to investigate 3 am haunting and paranormal events. I believe what they are experiencing is very real but the source of the events are causing deception to disguise what the entities really are. Locations across the world are now famous because demoniac forces in full bloom are becoming prevalent. They are becoming “stars” at these locations causing massive followings and interest that is steeped in deception. But I will give them credit for trying to uncover thing that are paranormal that many Christian will not deal with. There will be more show that will deal with this and more out right manifestation! Evil is coming out an all new high. It is times to be sober-minded about the thing you are experiencing around you. It is not just in your mind. The reality is as believer we have the power to deal with it. the sad p[art is that if you talk to anyone about it they will think you are crazy. That is the state of the church. deliverance ministry are not just extract program that are hidden away in some part of the body of Christ. However the attack on families and homes are real. It will take power from on high in Jesus name to deal with it. It will take first addressing the evil around you and then doing what the word of God say: Rebuke and bind it in Jesus name.
One new shows deal with evil on college campus: School Spiritts. This makes sense given the long history of most colleges in areas that have been through much. The other new show Haunted Collector and Haunted Highway are trying to solve the objects and legend that are around the homes and cities of every day people. It is troubling to see them use every thing they can to deal with evil except the power of Jesus. However because these are not Christian based shows I watch them with great understanding that the world is trying to make sense of things that are going wrong. It is not their role and they don’t have the power from Jesus to deal with it anyway. It makes senses to see them operate with only what they know. I give them credit for trying to unravel what most Christian avoid. As believers we have the answer in the word of God. We can operate with revelation from what God shows us in the gift of the spirit. I am not recommending going on a witch hunt for evil, but deal with what is in your homes and family that is not of God. Stand up and be counted. You house is not settling again and again! Something is walking around your home and family causing torment. Stand up inside and pray for power in you to rise up and take authority as Jesus did! Jesus gave us the answer in his teachings, life, and resurrection!
It is appointed unto to man once to live and once to die. By that the word it is clear that you are cast into hell or heaven in the after life. It is God’s grace that people return from these two locations, back from death and are given a second chance. It reminds me of the story of Lazarus in the Bible. He died and was brought back to life by Jesus. It seems that these events reflect on God’s power and grace to allow people a second chance in life to finish what they started or get right before they have a final blow with death. Jesus resurrected Lazarus to show us God’s power and glory. With the understanding of what the scripture says concerning death and life and the events surrounding Lazarus it can be concluded that we do go from one stage to the other as God wills. However the concept of being a ghost still has no biblical grounds. Once we die, we are not walking around on earth haunting each other. Demons take on the form of loves ones to gain your trust then haunt you. Light can look like darkness, but it will always turn back to darkness at some point. The demon will look like loved one and respond as loves one. This open the doors for oppression and trusting in something other than God. It is historical for humans to play with necromancy.
“ Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spirits or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you.”Deuteronomy 18:10-12 New International Version (NIV)
There are psychics who have become famous from communication with these forces making millions of dollars based upon deception. They are working with demons, spirits, and entities that assist them in knowing about the lives of the people they encounter. And no marvel for the spirit realm is vast. You can easily pick up history from people by reading their lives. History in the spirit realm in always available for psychics, but the future is never made known as far as God’s will. Only God hold the keys to our future. He reveals it to His prophets and messengers based upon his word and the Holy Spirit. There are also many false prophets in the earth claiming relationship with him but that they do not have it biblically. False prophets create deception knowingly or unknowingly using demonic powers to lead people astray. Before getting saved when I used ESP, readings, and mind control I could pick up very accurate information about people. I was rarely ever wrong. But I could only tell them things they already knew to gain their trust. The future had to be fabricated with truth + lies, and a little demonic imagination to tell them what they wanted to hear. Witchcraft is based on manipulation and intimidation. It takes a lot of truth weaved into deception to tell a really good lie. The more truth is used, the better the lie to deceive.
The 1st heaven is the sky where the clouds and lightning are, and where birds fly: Genesis 7:23 and I Kings 18:45.The 2nd heaven is the sky where the sun and moon and stars are: Matthew 24:29. The 3rd heaven is Paradise where God’s home is: Deuteronomy 10:14. John 14:2-3, and II Cor.12:2
A movie was made from the TV show “The Haunting” about the ‘Haunting in Connecticut’. The family was tormented by spirits in their house. I do believe that regions, nations, communities, houses and lands can have more than normal demonic activities based upon the territory. There are levels of spirits in that realm that try to rule over nations, cities, homes, and towns.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
“ And it is he who gifted some to be apostles, others to be prophets, others to be evangelists, and still others to be pastors and teachers, to perfect the saints, to do the work of ministry, and to build up the body of Christ “ Ephesians 4:11-12
The operation of the office is instructive and edified the body of Christ and others in the world around us. Every thing that God creates is real and there is a counterfeit for it. It is important to study the word to know the real reflection of the calls that exist in the body of Christ. It is important to understand the truth of the different offices when confronted with the office in the word of God. Here’s a list of the similarities dimensions of the Five Fold Ministry and the fivefold Demonic that I have discerned.
Five Fold Holy Five Fold Demonic
Apostle of God/Jesus Satan
Prophet /Messenger/Jesus Principalities
Pastor/Shepherd/Jesus Rulers of Darkness
Teachers/Jesus Spiritual Wickedness in High Places
The operation of the Godly Five Fold edified the body of Christ. The demonic five fold operates as in the heavens and earth with similar tasks, but opposite to the Five Fold Holy. For example a pastor deals with the soul, spirit and heart of men in counseling and shepherding. The rulers deal with the soul, spirit and heart of men in decisions that result in sin. The Teacher affects knowledge and instruction from revelation of truth. The operation of Wickedness in High places affects mistruth in society with darkness that is exercised in daily life, spirituality, and communities. The prophets are messengers of God to reveal and guide through the word of God in our daily lives. The gift of prophet is too often misused in the church. True prophets do exist, but are too often buried under legalism. The Principalities in the atmosphere affect people and societies with law, commands, legal matters, and legislation that perverts God will for his people. Principalities promote a false sense of what is truth and what is set in its place is evil working over and through governing bodies.

Do not be afraid of whom or what you will face but know that in you is more than enough power to change the world around you through the name of Jesus! Wake up! It’s morning and God gave you a new day as you prayed through the night. The new day has just begun! Rejoice and glorify God in this new day! So who ever is up at 3 am.
