Dangers of the Occult


Revelation 12 v 9: "And the great dragon was cast out (of heaven), that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."

Ephesians 6 v 12: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood (people), but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

The word "Occult" means hidden or secretive, which leads us to darkness and what lies beneath. Occult practices and religions originated in the East ie Asia, where the Dragon is worshipped.  The Holy Spirit in Acts 16 twice forbade Paul to go into Asia. He knows the spiritual battleground that exists there.

Africa was not called Darkest Africa because its inhabitants were black but because of the dark practices of voodoo, sorcery and witchcraft that encompass this continent.  And all these Eastern and African practices have spread throughout the world and become norms.

Towards the end of Revelations a mighty angel shouts Babylon is fallen, is fallen! And that city is the true origin of ancient occultism. The tower of Babel was an early planetarium to study the stars for astrological and divination (telling the future) purposes. God had to try stem the occult tide by changing their languages so they could not understand each other.

There was much witchcraft, sorcery and astrology in Babylon that has migrated far and wide. It is now flourishing in Rome under the guise of the Roman Catholic Church whom God in Revelations calls the Great Whore that sits on 7 mountains. Over 1 billion Catholics are trapped in this system.

Even the garments the Pope (a Babylonian title, also Pontiff) wears are replicas of the Babylonian priesthood. His mitre (hat) is the symbol of Dagon the Fish God. His two raised fingers the symbol of secular power over the Church. Read "The Two Babylons" by A. Hislop.

In 2 Corinthians 6 God says Come out of her My people and separate yourselves to Me and I will be a Father to you. 

Christians who dabble in the occult by reading their horoscopes or doing martial arts, Transendental Meditation, yoga (See "The Real Battleground" on this blog archive - or visualisation techniques are confusing themselves and following after another god. Jesus said in Matthew 6 that we cannot serve two masters.

I discovered that the names of the star signs are all ruling demons. Cancer the crab is a ruling demon and just this week I heard on Sky news how all forms of cancer are becoming epidemic. The ruling spirit of Cancer has free reign. Until Christians put this and other demon rulers to the sword they will mock us and kill us.

So many pooh pooh the existence of demons but just this week we were asked to pray and intercede for a man who for no medical reason had slipped into a coma. All we knew about him was his name and that he was a martial arts instructor.

Two demons immediately came to mind - both ruling occult spirits. The Kundalini at base of spine is also known as prana or The Force and is the Ki that martial arts practitioners bow down to; plus Rege who resides in the brain and when these two link up through special breathing exercises then feats of speed, power and combat can be performed.

All spinal problems originate from the Kundalini; all brain related problems come from control of Rege.

We prayed for him and a lady in England did great battle under much pain for this man, who the following day woke up from his coma and was out of ICU sending sms etc to friends.

The doctors were baffled but Jesus knew exactly what had put him in coma and called in His warriors to fight in prayer to release him from occult bondage.

When we follow a foreign god we step into the unknown and gamble with our lives. We don't see the danger, the minefield we run across never knowing when one will explode beneath us. God gives clear warnings but too few even listen and become like Eve eating the forbidden fruit and losing her place in paradise.

If the Holy Spirit is showing you that you are doing something dangerous please listen to Him and cease that activity immediately. Don't just minimize it to "take the edge off" that is Satan's lie to keep his control over you. Destroy everything associated with that activity - clothing, books, obJects - by fire.

Pray for forgiveness and release all those you guided into this activity with you. Ask Jesus to set you free of the demons that have bound you. He will block them from you unless you invite them back. Have fellowship with other born again Christians and read your Bible. Renew your mind according to the will of God.

Prayer: Heavenly Father we need help to know the strongholds of the enemy in our lives and how he has blinded us to the truth about You and Jesus and Your Kingdom. Open our eyes to see and our minds to understand the dangers of this world. Jesus overcame it all so we could follow in His footsteps and spend eternity with You. Increase our faith and obedience  O Lord, in Jesus' name. Amen.
