When I was at church yesterday
evening, a word came from the Lord through the pastor’s wife that He
wants us to praise, because those who are worshippers are those who
hear the voice of God. If you want direction from the Lord in any
area of your life, get into praise. This puts you in such a place in
God where you can hear His voice clearer.
Tarot Cards and Crystal balls are tools allowing you to play with evil spirits. These spirits are of a ‘lower’ energy and make you feel incredibly nauseous. They lack the power of anything Godly which has the ability to fill a room with depth, sensitivity and absolute pure, perfect love. It is not the tools which attract the unseen . . . . But the thoughts and intentions behind their use. Anything can be used as a tool – an ordinary pack of playing cards, anything which you may feel inclined to use. It is the Devil’s playground.
Its sad to say folks, but nowadays many of the leaders in the charismatic movement can no longer be trusted. The love of money, influence, fame, power and zany spiritual experiences has, for many of them, overcome the love of truth, integrity – actually the love for the true God. Whether this expresses itself as endorsement for bizarre and unbiblical practices, support for America’s imperial wars of destruction and mayhem, or enthusiasm for Roman Catholic spirituality – the truth is that we are going to have to choose between following Jesus and following these leaders.
Here is a video showing some of the bizarre things that can happen when “strange fire” is allowed to predominate in a service.
Eph 4:27 “neither give place to the devil”.
If Paul, writing to Christians, told them that they should not give place to the devil, it implies that it IS possible for a Christian to do so.
The fact is, Christians all over the world have done this, and this is one of the main reasons we are falling short of God’s intentions for our lives.
The Bible says a curse without cause cannot rest. If we are walking in the Spirit consistently, we need not fear the devil, because “greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world”.
Mat 15:21 Then Jesus went out from there and departed to the region of Tyre and Sidon.
Mat 15:22 And behold, a woman of Canaan came from that region and cried out to Him, saying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David! My daughter is severely demon-possessed.”
Mat 15:23 But He answered her not a word.
Jesus, I come to you as my deliverer. I believe that You are the Son of God, that You died for me and rose again. I confess You as Lord and renounce all influences of Satan in my life. Lord, you know the demons that oppress me, that harrass me, that entice me, that enslave me. I confess all my sins to you. (You must name them out loud before God). I repent of (turn away from) all my sins. I renounce any form of the occult or idolatry in my life or in the life of my ancestors (Name them to the extent of your knowledge of it).
