THE WALKING DEAD Editorial Reviews Product Description OCCULT STEPPING STONES TO WITCHCRAFT "The Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils." (1 Tim. 4:1) The Walking Dead book concerns the Lamb family (a fictitious name) that was living in Central Florida where a white witch that cast deadly spells upon them that almost cost Rita Lamb her life. It also reveals witchcraft power that engaged the teenagers in the community to become involved with the powers of darkness. They became zombies like when this white witch gave them drugs and taught them witchcraft rituals in the local cemetery, thus destroying their lives through demon possession. No one can dabble in witchcraft and come away unshackled. However through Jesus, one can be deliverance, (Matt. 18:18) there are very few Christian ministers that can deliver them. He died for us that we might live. Dr. Holliday says that the rise and social acceptance of witchcraft in America has caused progressive interest and involvement in the occult and capturing millions spiritual slaves. Also she says, "Witchcraft and Satanic worship, coupled with human sacrifices is widespread and happening now!" Christians should never seek help, guidance or healing from a witch or psychic. EPHESIANS 6:10 “Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.” (Eph. 6:13-21).Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always
with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”
Soldiers who believe Jesus' command. Arise! Take possession of the land. Will be empowered by His mighty band. Free them from Satan's evil hand. Receives hope of King's Promised Land. Pat Holliday, Ph.D. Luke 10:9 “And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.” Luke 11:20 “But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.” Charles H. Spurgeon "To preach deliverance to the captives," (Lk. 4.18). None but Jesus can give deliverance to captives. Real liberty cometh from Him only. It is a liberty righteously bestowed; for the Son, who is Heir of all things, has a right to make men free. The saints honour the justice of God, which now secures their salvation. It is a liberty which has been dearly purchased. Christ speaks it by His power, but He bought it by His blood. He makes thee free, but it is by His own bonds. Thou goest clear, because He bare thy burden for thee: thou art set at liberty, because He has suffered in thy stead. But, though dearly purchased, He freely gives it. Jesus asks nothing of us as a preparation for this liberty. He finds us sitting in sackcloth and ashes, and bids us put on the beautiful array of freedom; He saves us just as we are, and all without our help or merit. When Jesus sets free, the liberty is perpetually entailed; no chains can bind again. Let the Master say to me, "Captive, I have delivered thee," and it is done for ever. Satan may plot to enslave us, but if the Lord be on our side, whom shall we fear? The world, with its temptations, may seek to ensnare us, but mightier is He who is for us than all they who be against us. The machinations of our own deceitful hearts may harass and annoy us, but He who hath begun the good work in us will carry it on and perfect it to the end. The foes of God and the enemies of man may gather their hosts together, and come with concentrated fury against us, but if God acquitteth, who is he that condemneth? Not more free is the eagle which mounts to his rocky eyrie, and afterwards outsoars the clouds, than the soul which Christ hath delivered. If we are no more under the law, but free from its curse, let our liberty be practically exhibited in our serving God with gratitude and delight. "I am Thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: Thou hast loosed my bonds." "Lord, what wilt Thou have me to do?" "For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same spirit; to another faith by the same spirit; to another gifts of healing . . . But all these worketh that one and the self same spirit,” (1 Cor.12:8-11).

The gifts of the Holy Spirit interact. Therefore, the gift of healing the sick can occur while a minister is casting out demons and miracles happen all the time. These gifts are used by God to demonstrate that Jesus Christ is alive and His death atonement is the same today as it was when He called His disciples and gave them power to use His name. Also, God uses these wonderful signs and wonders to draw lost souls to Him because they can see that His people serve a Living God Who loves His people. “And by the hands of the Apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people, and believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women. Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the Shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, Bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits; and they were HEALED EVERYONE,” (Acts 5:12-16). God help modern pastors who stand behind pulpits preaching a dead Jesus, a Word that has been reduced in importance of revealing the foundations of ministry and reveals Jesus in a historical, traditional method. Meanwhile people’s lives are being ravaged by the forces of darkness and Satan has caused many to become destitute and shipwrecked receiving strange doctrines of demons... They seem to believe in the power of devils but see anyone who obeys the New Testament by demonstrating the power of God as charlatans and kooks. Miracles confirmed the Christian gospel and assisted in the establishment of a firm foundation for the church. Everywhere the Disciples preached and healed the sick and cast out devils, multitudes turned to Christ! “The city of Samaria gave heed to the WORD that Philip sake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying with old voices came out of many that were possessed: many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. And there was great joy in that city,”(Acts 8:5-8). All the inhabitants of Sharon and Lydda “turned to the Lord when Peter told Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, sick of the palsy, “Jesus Christ maketh three whole. Arise and make thy bed. And he Arose immediately,” (Acts 9:33-35).“Many believed in Joppa when Peter raised Dorcas from the dead,” (Acts 9:42). “Some of the converts were <men of Cyprus and Cyrene, when they were come to Antioch, they ?spake unto the Creeks, preaching the Lord Jesus. And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned to the Lord,” (Acts 11:19-21). “The People at Lystra thought God had come down to them when they saw the crippled man leap and walk at Paul’s command,” (Acts 14:8-18). “And by the hands of the Apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people, and believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women. Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the Shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, Bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits; and they were HEALED EVERYONE,” (Acts 5:12-16).
If God gave this gift to Old Testament and New Testament Saints, why would he take this gift from today’s church? (Acts 10:34), “Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.” The devil is still around today. Old Testament Miracles David said in (Psa. 103:3), “Bless the Lord . . . and forget not all His Benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases.” Healing is still consider a benefit by those who needed it and will accept Christ’s healing touch!
Power of Jesus Deliverance “So will they fear the name of the Lord from the west and East. His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift a standard against Him,” ( Isa. 59:1). FREEDOM Christians can live free from mental torture, panic, envy, hatred, pride, self-pity, addiction, gluttony and all other forms of bondage, oppression and defilement! There are two main causes for a person’s inner problems. The first point is what the Word calls “the flesh, or the ‘old man.” The old man that part of the person that is the carnal nature of the person’s flesh and it is the rebellious person’s will that is being influenced and tempted by Satan. “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin,” (Rom. 6:6). That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; 10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him,” (Col 3:9-10). The second cause for inner problems is the working of evil spirits. Demons will tie themselves to the person’s mind or flesh. They will not relinquish their evil hold unless compelled to do so by a Christian that is empowered by Jesus. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil , and he will flee from you,” (Jam. 4:7).
DEMONS ARE REAL Many Christians are totally unaware of the reality of indiscernible world of demons. They are real! The Bible says, that my people perish for a lack of knowledge. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge : because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children,” (Hos 4:6). Multitudes are tormented because people choose to ignore the power to cast out devils. The word of God declares, folks can be bound by Satan,. “And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. 17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. 19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. 20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. 21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: 22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils,” (Lk. 13:11,16). COMPASSION Jesus had great compassion for the possessed. He used His power to free them. Then the first assignments that He gave His followers was the empowerment to cast out devils. However, every problem is not the devil. Some problems comes from the person’s willful sin life. The scriptural answer to the sins of the flesh is complete surrender to Jesus, (Ro. 6: 611. ) If the problem is caused by the person’s submission to the sins of the flesh, then counsel must direct that person to commitment to the Lord and His Word. If it is a demon, then we must cast it out. Obviously correct diagnosis is of major importance. We must discern what we are dealing with each case. Is the problem being caused by oppression of the flesh? If this is the reason, then we must counsel the person to totally commit his or her life to Jesus Christ. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts,” (Gal. 5:24). If it a question of demon possession, then we must cast it out.
http://www.miracleinternetchurch.com Page 5
“For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.” (Mk. 5,8, 16:17). “For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed,” (Acts 8:7). Only born again Christians have this ability. Remember, you cannot cast out a person’s flesh nor can you crucify an evil spirit! Spirit of Deception “The spirit of the Lord is upon me because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach DELIVERANCE TO THE CAPTIVES, and recovering of sigh to the blind, to SET AT LIBERTY THEM THAT ARE BRUISED,” (Lk. 4:18). DISHONEST The inspired Apostle Paul warned us: “Let no one deceive you,” (2 Thess. 2:3). It is clear that Christians can be vulnerable to deception and we must not forget it. We must be on guard and protect ourselves against deceit. There is deception everywhere in the religious world. We must be alert. The Spirit of God revealed to John in a vision that in the last days, demon spirits would be released upon the earth which would go forth to deceive the world. (Rev 16:13-14), “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.” These three spirits that John saw represent lying, deceiving, seducing demon spirits that are going to be released by Satan. (Rev. 16:14), “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” The Body of Christ will face Satanic - demonic confrontation greater than at any other time in history. It will be a time of intensified spiritual warfare where demons will manifest themselves and will be in direct confrontation with God’s people. The Church has slept through the occult witchcraft revival of the seventies, eighties, nineties that has continued until the present time. The darkness has entered the American Churches in many manifestations and forms. Many leaders do not discern the betwitchments because they mainly do not believe that it even exists! It is time that the Church shake itself out of the spiritual stupor that it finds itself and seek the Lord. The Church has become so fragmented, it seems that Satan’s army is foraging ahead with Satan’s well-organized plan to bring the entire world into rebellion against God! This is just fulfillment of end time prophecy of the Bible. Jesus said, “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive
you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many,” (Matt. 24:4-5). [Take heed ...] (Matt. 24:4). Jesus, in reply to their question, first gives them a caution to beware of deception. They were to be constantly on their guard, because many would arise to deceive the people. [Many shall come in my name] Not in the name or by the authority of Jesus, or claiming to be HIS followers, and to be sent by him, but in the name of the Messiah, or claiming to be the Messiah. 1 [I am Christ] (Matt 24:5). I am the Messiah. The Messiah was expected at that time, (Matt 2:1-2). Many would lay, claims to being the Messiah, and, as He was universally expected, multitudes would easily be led to believe in them. There is abundant evidence that this was fully accomplished. Josephus informs us that there were many who pretended to divine inspiration; that deceived the people, leading out numbers of them into the desert. "The land," says He "was overrun with magicians, seducers, and impostors, who drew the people after them in multitudes into solitudes and deserts, to see I the signs and miracles which they promised to show by the power of God." Among these are mentioned particularly Dositheus, the Samaritan, who affirmed that He was Christ; Simon Magus, who said He appeared among the Jews as the Son of God; and Theudas, who persuaded many to go with him to the river Jordan, to see the waters divided. The names of 24 false Messiahs are recorded as having appeared between the time of the Emperor Adrian and the year 1682. 2 The Church will have a continual conflict with infinite miseries and offences, and furthermore, with false prophets, until the day of victory and triumph comes.3 Deception tries to deceive by appearing like the real thing. Some no longer can perceive what the real Christian faith is. Christianity is more than seeking God for favor for getting things. Jesus is the center of the Gospel. His Word is the avenue to God’s throne. Many teachers have needed to be taught. One of Martin Luther’s favorite sayings was “mundus vult decipi” — the world wants to be deceived. In the first chapter of the book of Zephaniah, the Lord charges and convicts both the people and the corrupt leaders they followed indicates the same: “Your prophets have seen for you false and deceptive visions; They have not uncovered your iniquity, to bring back your captives, but have envisioned for you false prophecies and delusions,” (Lam. 2:14). The words deceit, deceitful, deceitfully, deceitfulness and deceive are used again and again in the Bible. It is one of the major themes, you are warned in Scripture about being deceived. There are numerous warnings about the exploiters and purveyors of deceit. The underlying Greek words for deceit cover everything from self-deceit to the practice of deceit by unprincipled religious teachers and con artists. You are warned repeatedly and must be ready, (2 Cor. 11:3-4, 13-14). Deceit is defined as: “The act of representing as true what is known to be false; a deceiving or lying. 2. A dishonest action or trick; fraud or lie. 3. The quality of being deceitful.”2
http://www.miracleinternetchurch.com Page 7
British scholar, W. E. Vine defines the Greek words apate and dolos that underlie the various English words for deceit: “APATE . . . to cheat, deceive, beguile, that which gives a false impression, whether by appearance, statement or influence . . . In (Col. 2:8), ‘vain deceit’ suggests that deceit is void of anything profitable . . . DOLOS . . . primarily a bait, snare; hence, craft, deceit, guile.”3 The Apostle Paul warns, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ,” (Col 2:8). PRACTICING WITCHCRAFT There is rise of social acceptance of witchcraft in America. We have entered the supernatural age of progressive interest and involvement in the occult. Satan's ambassadors are very successful and extremely evangelistic, capturing spiritual slaves. Also Witchcraft and Satanic worship, coupled with human sacrifices is widespread and happening now! The Messages from the Spirits: Preachers no longer preach about Hell. However, Jesus tells us about the rich man and the beggar, Lazarus, who have both died, in Luke 16. When the rich man pleads that the beggar, Lazarus, be allowed to go back to earth to warn the rich man’s brothers about his separation from God after death, and the terrible place he is in, the rich man is told that his brothers can listen to Moses and the Prophets and be warned that way. When the rich man begs again that "someone from the dead" should go to them, he is told that if his brothers ignore Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced "even if someone rises from the dead," (verses 27-31). Jesus is not just speaking of someone coming back from the dead, but of his own resurrection from the dead whom many refused to believe.4 Spiritualism is demonic. The person is a medium that traffics with evil spirits who impersonates a dead person. This is called necromancy in the Bible. John Edward’s show, "Crossing Over," was so popular on the Sci-Fi channel, that it ‘‘crossed over’’ from cable to regular network. Edward approaches a section of the audience and starts giving his ‘‘impressions’’ of what he is getting, whether it be a name, numbers, or a date, until someone responds with information that matches. He also asks the person questions as he tosses out ‘‘clues’’ he says he is receiving. Sometimes it seems that he is throwing out very general information and that the person in the audience is filling in the blanks for Edward. Other times, Edward seems to be uncannily accurate. Is he really receiving messages from dead people? 5 Interestingly, it seems the dead have a hard time being very clear. For example, they may show Edward pink roses to say that everything is alright, according to Edward, or they may show Edward a flag to indicate their past patriotism in this life. It is sort of like a game of spiritual charades. One wonders about this. Why can’t the dead just speak words to Edward, or write them out on a "spirit chalkboard" so to speak? James Van Praagh, in explaining the difficulty he has in interpreting the symbols shown to him by spirits, said that the recently deceased spirits were just learning to communicate, and so one could not expect all messages to be clear. This raises other questions: Why do recently dead people have trouble communicating? Where do they get these objects that they show Edward and Van Praagh?
http://www.miracleinternetchurch.com Page 8
Why can’t they just project their thoughts into Edward’s mind? Why are their messages so prosaic and, well, boring? The picture one gets of these creatures certainly does not present a very interesting company of people to pass the time with. Why would these spirits have any special wisdom just because they are dead? Though the spirits always claim to be happy and to be doing well (is Hitler also there with them, doing okay), we do not know why they are happy and doing well? What do they do, exactly? And if they told us, how do we know it’s true? How can we test these spirits to see if they are lying about anything or everything they tell the mediums? The answer is that we can’t test them based on our own experiences since we haven’t been to the other side. Only God really knows if these spirits are telling the truth, and who these spirits are. Note that the messages from the "dead," from the spirits, and from channeled entities never encourage people to believe the Bible, never urge people to trust Christ for salvation, and often openly contradict God’s word or even speak derisively of Christ as Savior. For example, the "God" in Walsch’’s books attacks very early on the credibility of the Bible, which he mentions specifically, saying that words cannot contain truth (of course, that should apply to Walsh’s books as well since they are nothing but words!). This "God" also attacks the idea that there is right and wrong, and urges Walsch to abandon previous beliefs. At one point, "God" even tells Walsch that he (Walsch) is God’s equal, and that Adam’s fall was actually his "upliftment," (sic) and that it was not sin, but was a "first blessing,"6 The medium called up Samuel, who was dead, but the medium seemed surprised to see Samuel. Although God also allowed Saul to see the impersonating devil appearing like Samuel, it was for him to receive news of his death the next day. God used Saul’s forbidden consultation with the medium to give him a message that condemned his action. (First Chron. 10:13, 14) follows up by telling us that one reason that Saul is allowed to die in battle is because he consulted a medium. “Then said the woman, whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, bring me up Samuel. 12 And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul,” (I Sam. 28:11). Noting the confused description she gives, it is fully evident that she was both surprised and alarmed at what she saw. The spirit being so widely different from what she expected to see, she cried with a loud voice. She was horrified at the strange spirit that made its appearance take shape of Samuel. Instantly she receives the message that the person that comes to her seeking information was, in fact, King Saul. (1 Sam. 28:12). At this point of the experience, King Saul could not see the manifestation of the evil spirit posing as Samuel. However, he had great fear that something frightening was happening. The witch said to the King, “ And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth,” (I Sam. 28: 13). “And he said unto her, what form is he of? And she said, an old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to
http://www.miracleinternetchurch.com Page 9
the ground, and bowed himself. (I Sam. 28:14). Saul perceived that it was Samuel. From the witch’s description, Saul believed that “it” was Samuel. The word perceives means, he “felt” or “sensed” “it” was Samuel. After Saul received the spiritual information from the witch, his spiritual ears were opened to “hear” the demon speak. “And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up?” (I Sam. 28:15). Then Saul no longer needed the medium acting as a spiritual pipe line between him and the demon. He answered the demon and sought information from “it” for himself. “And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do.” It is important to see here, that Saul tells the demon that he has the problem that his enemy is going to make war against him. Imagine this. His enemy is the same demonic force that he is seeking an answer. Also note he knows it. He said, “God is departed from me and has cut all Divine communication. So, he simply joins the other side. There is no way that God would break His Word and allow a dead prophet to appear to the back slider King Saul. If God tells us not to seek information from the dead, then he is not going allow His beloved Samuel participates in this type of demonic activity. If God was silent to King Saul, God would not have used a demonic activity to give spiritual information to the King. “Then said Samuel, Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the LORD is departed from thee, and is become thine enemy? (I Sam. 28:16). There simply is no help if the Spirit of the Lord has turned you over to the Devil. Words are spirit. They are either coming from the Spirit of God or the spirit of a demon. The demon speaks spiritual words of curses over King Saul. “And the LORD hath done to him, as he spake by me: for the LORD hath rent the kingdom out of thine hand, and given it to thy neighbour, even to David: Because thou obeyedst not the voice of the LORD, nor executedst his fierce wrath upon Amalek, therefore hath the LORD done this thing unto thee this day,” (1Sam. 28: 17, 18). The impersonating demon of Samuel pronounces a curse over the King which reveals to him the utter destruction of his work and the also the deaths of himself and his sons. “Moreover the LORD will also deliver Israel with thee into the hand of the Philistines: and tomorrow shalt thou and thy sons be with me: the LORD also shall deliver the host of Israel into the hand of the Philistines,” (I Sam. 28:19). “Then Saul fell straightway all along on the earth, and was sore afraid, because of the words of Samuel: and there was no strength in him; for he had eaten no bread all the day, nor all the night. The witch was smart enough to know that what was happening by Saul’s evil communication was in violation of the spiritual laws of God. Inspired by her craft, she moved to capture Saul’s spirit for her master.
Witches’ use rituals of making potions from food and drinks. They “bless” these drinks and foods to their devils. These potions are for the witch to get total control over their subjects. The witch of Endor wanted to use her familiar spirits to block King Saul from being able to repent to God for his wicked actions of going after other gods. The next verses tell us how she secured his soul by bringing into complete subjection to these witchcraft powers. (1 Sam. 28:20-25). “And the woman came unto Saul, and saw that he was sore troubled, and said unto him, Behold, thine handmaid hath obeyed thy voice, and I have put my life in my hand, and have hearkened unto thy words which thou spakest unto me. 22 Now therefore, I pray thee, hearken thou also unto the voice of thine handmaid, and let me set a morsel of bread before thee; and eat, that thou mayest have strength, when thou goest on thy way. 23 But he refused, and said, I will not eat. But his servants, together with the woman, compelled him; and he hearkened unto their voice. So he arose from the earth, and sat upon the bed. 24 And the woman had a fat calf in the house; and she hasted, and killed it, and took flour, and kneaded it, and did bake unleavened bread thereof: 25 And she brought it before Saul, and before his servants; and they did eat. Then they rose up, and went away that night.” Notice that she killed a fat calf. Another words, she sealed the evil pact with King Saul and his men with a blood sacrifice. This fact sealed the fate of Saul and his men and though they knew that they were going to their deaths, they went into battle like controlled zombies and died. It is a serious thing to go to necromancers, spiritists or mediums. God is not going to wink at those who seek necromancers out like John Edwards. Seeking after these familiar spirits, will condemn them before the throne of God. They may be committing abominations to God that may take their souls for eternity. Consulting mediums or attempting spirit contact takes us away from seeking God for direction: "And when they say to you, ‘‘consult the mediums and the spiritists who whisper and mutter should not a people consult their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living? To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them," (Isa. 8: 19, 20). (Lev. 19:31), puts it clearly: "Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God." God considers this spiritual adultery (Lev. 20:6). There are two kinds of angels: good angels who serve God, and fallen angels (evil spirits, demons) who serve Satan. Good angels are messengers of God; they serve God, not us. They do not come and go at our command. If one seeks to contact an angel, only evil angels will respond. 7 (2 Cor. 11:14), tells us that Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light. Demons serve Satan, and take after him. Why can’t a demon disguise itself as a good angel, a dead person, a wise spiritual ‘‘master,’’ or any other spirit that humans seek? 8 Conclusions This is what God had to say about the prophets who presented their dreams as coming from God, when they weren’t: "I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in my name. They say, ‘‘I had a dream! I had a dream!’’ How long will this continue in the hearts of
http://www.miracleinternetchurch.com Page 11
these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds? They think the dreams they tell one another will make my people forget my name, just as their fathers forgot my name through Baal worship. Let the prophet who has a dream tell his dream, but let the one who has my word speak it faithfully. For what has straw to do with grain?" declares the Lord? ‘‘Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord, and like a hammer which shatters a rock?’’ (Jer. 23:25-29). The Bible warns people not to get entangled with mediums or wizards, or witches. God knew that doing so would endanger the souls to enter the pit of eternal hell by doing so. “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter , or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer (talking to the dead). 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. 13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God,” (Deut 18:10-13). DEMONS ARE REAL At this time, many Christians hardly believe that demons are real, let alone that there are people practicing witchcraft. “All one has to do is keep your eyes on Jesus,” many said. Another thing, “We don’t want to lift the Devil up or give him any credit,” others would assert strongly. Meantime, right before our eyes one of the greatest occult explosions took place. Satan has tremendous control over his captives. He can control them completely. The Bible says, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost; In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them,” (II Cor. 4:3-4). There are two sources for a person to be able to achieve supernatural power, Jesus or Satan. Seeking power beyond the Word of God and beyond the authority of Jesus Christ finds a person stepping into the world of the Occult. The occult is very religious. Many are seeking hoping to find for themselves a reason for their life. They want to fill a void in their soul. Instead, they will move into a door that very few people come back. Once ensnared by the Devil, the person’s mind, body and spirit is totally bound by the powers of darkness. The only way out is through the grace of God and the Blood of Jesus. 9 The Apostle Peter tells us in (2 Pet. 1:19), "We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.” We are living in dark days: morally, spiritually, nationally, internationally, politically and economically. A prophecy gives light on the pathway that is set before us. The prophetic word is the only ray of light by which we can know the future. The coming outlook is pitch-dark but for Believers. It is bright. SATAN AND JESUS In the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, we see the power of Satan and the results of his influence over people. Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden and all of its blessings by following his influence. This alone should tell all men that he is a power to be reckoned with.

Jesus, while on earth, was confronted by the power in the physical as well as in the spiritual sense. Often he rebuked the Devil in people who were afflicted with illness as well as those who were violent and acted abnormally. Look at Mark Chapter 5, devils of epilepsy were cast. The seventy came rejoicing because the devils were subject unto them. In the final statement in Mark, Chapter 16, casting out of devils is shown as part of the preaching of the Gospel, and I find no place in Scripture where this was ever rescinded. There are many occurrences in life that even the medical world cannot explain. Only knowledge as shown in the book of Job can explain these strange occurrences. We find a full onslaught of Satan’s work and ability. His destruction of Job’s wealth, family and total physical health reduced the man to a fragment of his original self. Satan is man’s enemy, as proven by the book of Job, and is a destroyer of all good things, but, every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father of Lights with whom there is no variableness. It should be easy to identify the source of what is happening by the results that are before us. God is a good and the giver of all good things; Satan is just the reverse of God. The influence of each is easily discerned by the end results. 10 Author Corrie Ten-Boom says, “Someone asked my opinion of the missionaries in a certain country. My answer was, ‘They have given all, but they have not taken all. They have given homeland, time, money, luxury, and more, but they have not taken all the riches abundant that the Word gives us from the boundless resources of God’s promises.’ Many do not know about two precious weapons: The power of the cross and the blood of Jesus and every legal right of use of the wonderful name of Jesus.” 11 PSYCHIC ABILITY The Bible give demonstrations of divination spirits that are constantly working to try to infiltrate the church. Look at (Acts 16:16), “As we went to prayer, a certain damsel (demonized) POSSESSED WITH A SPIRIT OF DIVINATION met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying.” This woman was delivered after the giving “a prophetic word” to the people. “And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: 17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. 18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour,” (Acts 16:16-18). Through the power of being able to discern the divination spirit in the woman, the Apostle Paul took authority over the evil spirit and cast it out. In our world today, we must be astute concerning the spirit of prophecy. Many have come into the church that had psychic abilities before asking Jesus to save them. Many of them have never been delivered from the divination spirits from their pre-Christian life. There are very few leaders that are alert and guarding the sheep. Many do not even know how to discern whether someone who is using supernatural power is connecting with God or the Devil.

The Apostle Paul shows that even as false ministers appeared as true ministers, so also Satan can masquerade himself as a true angel of God. The purpose of coming to a person in the role of the deceiver is to trick that individual into accepting the false for the true. “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works,” (2 Cor. 11:14). You must look to see if a spirit that is operating through a person is the Holy Spirit or an unholy spirit. A believer protection is discerning the spirits to see if they be of God and studying the whole counsel of God’s Word and rightly dividing the Word by interpreting Scripture with Scripture. PSYCHIC POWER Marcia Montenego, a former New Ager, writes, “Psychic ability is developed by learning to get into an altered state of consciousness (a light trance) and opening one's mind and self to supernatural forces. The most common way one learns to do this is through certain forms of meditation or visualization (normally preceded by relaxation and/or breathing exercises) or through the use of occulted tools such as an astrology chart, a crystal ball, a numerology chart, etc., which seem to spontaneously trigger such altered mind states. 12 In psychic development classes in which the writer once participated, students are taught to practice various techniques of meditation, focus and visualization; sometimes this includes contacting a 'spirit guide' from another dimension. Some go deeper into this state and become a medium or channeler. They lose conscious awareness and allow a supernatural entity to take over their body and speak through them (a medium thinks the spirit is a dead person; a channeler believes it is a being from another realm, or possibly a space alien). A psychic normally maintains awareness while receiving the information. Once these techniques are mastered, it becomes very easy to 'slip' in and out of such a state at will. Visiting the county library, this writer found several books on the occult that give instructions on how to use a crystal ball, read tarot cards, etc. The instructions emphasize going into a meditative or trancelike state in order to more effectively use these tools. Where do psychics think the information comes from? Not all psychics agree, but generally they believe one or more of the following: They are tapping into an energy field which contains the information. They are accessing a type of psychic central records division called the Akashic Record which contains all information about the past, present and future. They are receiving the information from the client's 'higher self' which has access to information pertinent to that client. The information is coming from the psychic's spirit guide or from God.” 13 THE WHITE LIGHT BARRIER Montenego goes on to warn, “When one takes steps to develop telepathy, ESP, or other psychic abilities, one is opening the door to dangerous forces. As this writer’s psychic abilities expanded, so did the frightening experiences. Many of this writer’s friends and associates in the occult often had similar experiences. In fact, it is common practice for a psychic to call on
http://www.miracleinternetchurch.com Page 14
benevolent protective forces or to visualize 'white light' (supposedly for protection) before practicing a psychic technique, doing a reading or spirit contact. What do they think they are protecting themselves from? By doing this, the psychics acknowledge the existence of evil or harmful beings, but how do they know these beings are not disguising themselves as benevolent spirits or guides? What law says a white light is a barrier to evil entities? Why would such a light keep out any spirits? Maybe the evil entities have been laughing all these years at this flimsy 'protection' as they fed false information to the psychics and pretended to be helpful. And why shouldn’t they? What would they have to lose? God already called this one when He wrote that Satan disguises himself as an "angel of light," (2 Cor. 11:14). 14 Montenego clearly shows that having Psychic power involves the influence of traffic in demonic forces. She says, “Psychic power in the Bible is described as having a familiar spirit, being a medium, being a soothsayer, or being a fortune-teller, among other terms. The Hebrew and Greek words for these terms are different from the Hebrew and Greek words used to describe prophecy or speaking in the power of the Holy Spirit. Divination, the art of retrieving hidden information with occult methods or paranormal powers, is linked with psychic ability and strongly condemned throughout the Bible.” (See Deut. 18:10-12; Lev. 19:31, 20:6; I Chron. 10:13-14; Is. 2:6; Dan. 2:27-28a). She went on to state, “God gives us the acid test in (Deut. 18:21-22), to use for prophecy. If the prophecy is not 100% accurate, the prophet is not from God. This writer, who once was involved in the occult and in psychic activity, was often told by psychics that a really good psychic on their best day might be about 85% accurate. No psychic claims 100% accuracy 100% of the time. Another test: If someone gives accurate information or foretells an event from dreams or visions, but then leads you away from the Biblical God, you should reject that prophet or visionary (Deut. 13:13). There is no way around it: when psychic ability is put to the test, it falls on its face.”15 These familiar spirits do not tell the truth. Many lives have been wrecked following after lying spirits. The Bible says, of LYING SPIRITS, “There came forth a spirit and stood before the Lord and said, "I will persuade him.”The Lord said to him, "Wherewith?" He said, "I will go forth and I will be a LYING SPIRIT in the mouth of all his prophets." Therefore, behold, the Lord has put (allowed) a LYING SPIRIT in the mouth of all these prophets,” (1Ki. 22:21-23). “There came out a spirit and stood before the Lord and said, "I will entice him." The Lord said to him, "Wherewith?" He said, "I will go out and be a LYING SPIRIT in the mouth of all his prophets." The Lord said, "You shall entice him and you shall also prevail; go out and do even so. The Lord has put (allowed) a LYING SPIRIT in the mouth of these your prophets,” (2Chron. 18:20-22). Truly lying spirits are real and they inspire false prophecies. We would do well to listen to Mrs. Montenego’s advice concerning going to Psychics. She warns, “Consulting a psychic, in person or by phone, for 'fun' or out of curiosity, according to the principles God gives us, should be avoided. You may discover that, in the long run, the information seems helpful only temporarily, and you will start using the psychic to make up for your own inability to cope and make decisions. You may also start relying on the psychic as a counselor to listen to your problems. The prophet Daniel said it best, "No wise man, enchanter, magician or diviner can explain to the king the mystery he has asked about, but there is a God
http://www.miracleinternetchurch.com Page 15
in heaven who reveals mysteries," (Dan. 2:27), for it is God who "alone has all wisdom and power," who "reveals deep and mysterious things and knows what lies hidden in darkness, though he himself is surrounded by light," (Dan. 2: 20, 22). 16 This word of caution, this writer can also add that you must be careful about hooking up with certain Christian prophets and prophetess. Many call themselves prophets and prophetesses’ but are they called by themselves or God? Words are spiritual. If a lying spirit is operating, a lying spirit will work to bring these words to happen. If God has not spoken, then Satan can work his plan for your life. This writer has seen many so-called Christian prophets telling Christians strange words that God did not speak. How did I know? Their words did not agree with God’s Word and through the discerning of spirits. You had better test the spirits to see if they are of God. UNCLEAN SPIRITS “I will cause the prophets and the UNCLEAN SPIRITS to pass out of the land,” (Zech. 13:2). “When the UNCLEAN SPIRIT is gone out of a man, he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he walks through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, I will return into my house from where I came out. When he is come, he finds it empty (because the man did not ask Jesus' Holy Spirit to move in.), swept and garnished. Then goes he, and takes with himself 7 other spirits more wicked than himself. They enter in and dwell there. The last state of that man is worse than the first,” (Matt. 12:43-45). “There was in their synagogue a man with an UNCLEAN SPIRIT; and he cried out, saying, "Let US alone. What have WE to do with You, You Jesus of Nazareth? Are You come to destroy US? I know You who You are, the Holy One of God." Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Hold your peace (be silent), and come out of him." When the UNCLEAN SPIRIT had torn (violently shook) him and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. They were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What thing is this? What new doctrine is this, for with authority He commands even the UNCLEAN SPIRITS and they do obey Him," (Mk. 1:23-27.) “UNCLEAN SPIRITS, when they saw Him, fell down before Him and cried, saying, "You are the Son of God," (Mk. 3:11). “All the devils (demons) besought Him saying, "Send us into the swine (pigs) that we may enter into them." Jesus gave them leave. The UNCLEAN SPIRITS went out and entered into the swine and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea,” (Mk. 5:12-13). “They brought forth the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude (out of the cities about Jerusalem) bringing sick folks and those tormented by UNCLEAN SPIRITS; they were all healed,” (Acts 5:15-16.) UNCLEAN SPIRITS, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed (demonized), palsied and lame,” (Acts 8:7).
http://www.miracleinternetchurch.com Page 16
“I saw 3 UNCLEAN SPIRITS, like frogs, come out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are the (evil) spirits of devils (demons), working miracles,” (Rev. 16:13-14). The Bible warns, "The Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils." (1 Tim. 4:1). He has captured the world now Satan is infiltrating doctrines into the Christian circles with his tactics to destroy from within. These New Age methods idealizes witchcraft and its supernatural orientation and the world's pagan cultures. They exalt pagan practices by depicting good verses evil Characters. Satan’s powerful agenda seduces its fans into an imaginary world that pits ‘‘white’’ or benevolent magic against dark, evil black magic. Both sides of this imagined ‘‘battle between good and evil’’ use cabalistic practices that God forbids and says, it is an abomination to God.” Fantasy movies are now being targeted to the Christian Church by powerful Evangelical leaders. The Bible says, "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness . . . Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight,” (Isa. 5:20-21). Parents, beware! FALLING AWAY The Apostle Paul warns of the spread of heresy from the Christian faith. The word Apostasy conveys the particular idea of falling away, a withdrawal, a defection from the faith. Paul goes on to say in the scriptures, “Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,” (I Thess. 2:3). The Bible shows in (II Thess. 2) the last days that a spirit of “strong delusion” will overtake the whole world. Have you noticed that “another Jesus, another Gospel,” is being preached everywhere? Paul shocked his listeners with the fact that many of their apostles were actually false when he said, “And no marvel (surprise); for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the minister of righteousness: whose end shall be according to their works,” (2Cor. 11:14). The Apostle Paul shows that even as false ministers appeared as true ministers, so also Satan can masquerade himself as a true angel of God. The purpose of coming to a person in the role of the deceiver is to trick that individual into accepting the false for the true. A believer protection is discerning the spirits to see if they be of God and studying the whole counsel of God’s Word and rightly dividing the Word by interpreting Scripture with Scripture. People of our day have a tendency to trust their church leaders and famous personalities by relying on them to do their Bible studies and tell them how to live. No one seems to watching the sheep. A Good Shepherd never runs when the wolves come, but he fights for his sheep. Jesus said, “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood. For I know this that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in AMONG YOU, not sparing the flock.” “Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them” (Acts 20:28-30).
