Origin of the Counterfeit


 Scripture: Revelation 4 v 1 - 4:  "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me which said, come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.
2  And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
3  And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
4  And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold."

The Apostle John sees a door opening in Heaven which means he is having a strong vision of God's Kingdom, and he hears a voice like the sound of a trumpet saying 'Come up here'. 

He sees the Throne and the One sitting upon it, he sees the 24 Elders seated around the Throne clothed in white with gold crowns on their heads.

When satan fell from Heaven he set up his own kingdom with himself on the throne, and 24 elders. His New Age symbol of the fake 5 coloured rainbow is around his throne. The 24 elders are ruling demons that are the 12 signs of the Zodiac and the 12 months of the year, which are the names of Roman gods.  So if you are into astrology satan is in control of your life and future. 

The Lord's comment on this can be found in Isaiah 47 v 13:  "Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee." 

I can actually hear His voice saying these words, heavy with sarcasm and anger; knowing that the diviners cannot save anyone.

Satan cannot originate anything!  He always takes and twists what God declares as truth in order to control us, if we let him. He twists Godly Prophecy into divination and fortune telling; Miracles into Magic; Love into Lust; Faith into fear; Truth into lies. His kingdom is a complete counterfeit of Heaven and very deadly to humans. There are many devious twists and turns that only Jesus knows how to navigate for us - so follow Him closely!

When you go to a fortune-teller or psychic medium for knowledge about your life and future you start a fire that will burn you. Their knowledge comes from the one who has sworn to destroy every human being. He got it so right after Adam and Eve were turned by his lying words, that God had to send a flood to wipe them out nearly every human alive.  Only Noah and his righteous family escaped.  Eight people!

Your visit to the occult world of divination starts a chain reaction that puts demons in charge of every false prophecy they utter. The demons make that bad news happen to prove that the psychic had it right. Someone in your family will die this year is a common false prophecy that satan loves to fulfil. From African witchdoctors to gypsy caravans and crystal balls the results are the same. If you have ever been snared by their words, repent and break that curse through the name of Jesus.  

The doors that open up the occult realm are "glassy glassy" or Ouija Board through which we talk to dead relatives and friends, or we think we do!  You are really talking to demons that impersonate the dead.  They are called Familiar Spirits because they are familiar with the dead.  

They know nicknames, special memories, secrets so they are very convincing.  This leads to Spiritualism where spirit mediums call up the dead and the demons mimic their voices.  If you have ever seen the movie "Ghost" you will understand this very clearly.  

Trance music and recreational drugs make you susceptible to an altered state of consciousness which demons exploit.  They insert suggestions into your unprotected mind and alter your moral or spiritual compass to suit Satan's will for you.  Never a pleasant outcome.

Movies with a dark satanic theme like Vampires, Witchcraft, Zombies, Pentagrams, include The Omen, Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby and many other titles that fascinate while the demons invade your mind and senses.  Some people become addicted to watching these horror movies and it can lead to false religions like Buddhism, Bahaism etc.  Anything but Jesus, our Saviour from eternal Hell.

We have choices to make.  Deuteronomy 7 v 24 - 26: "And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them.
25  The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the LORD thy God.
26  Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing."

God hates the counterfeit world of Satan.  It is cursed and we are subject to it until we are born again.  To be truly free get rid of, by fire or any other method, anything occultic or tainted with witchcraft or false religion.  All objects associated with these evil practices including music, books, charms, emblems, symbols, clothing.

Acts 19 v 19 - 20: "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."

We must overcome this counterfeit kingdom fully and finally to be free of the curses it brings upon our lives and our planet. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father, when we disobey Your Word and seek idols and fortune tellers to enlighten us we fall into serious problems. You alone know the future and we should only seek this knowledge from you. Please forgive us and break every curse and counterfeit belief over our lives.  In Jesus' name. Amen.
