Choose “this day” whom you serve. Choose life or death, blessing or cursing.
Each day you must choose to hear, serve, and obey. God gave us the gift of free will and choice and with that as believers in Christ we must make decisions and choices daily. It takes a free moral agent, making the right choice, to create the mind of Christ in us.
In heaven, iniquity was found in Lucifer. In Heaven the Angels have the power of choice to sin. (Ezekiel 28, Isaiah 14, Ezekiel 28:13)
He was the most beautiful Angel that covered God’s Throne and “The workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.” (Ezekiel 28:13)
He became captivated in his own beauty, and in his pride, jealousy, and rebellion he went after God’s throne. For his iniquity and rebellion, Lucifer, or Satan, and a third of the Angels who were joined with him, were cast to the earth.
To this day Satan and the demons, having pure hatred and pure jealousy, go after the saints, to war against them.
In their treachery, they seek to deceive the saints and try to take as many souls as possible to inherit hell’s eternal flame.
They know they lost their eternal position in heaven, and they know their future and they tremble. But understand because of this, they hate you with pure hatred!
They know God loves his children and they plan, manipulate, and target the believers specially to take them captive in sin. If you love Jesus, the demons know your name!
“Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them, and the evil spirits went out of them. Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” Also, there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?” Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. So, the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.” Acts 19:11-20 NKJV
Satan knows the depth and power of music and he tries to corrupt God’s beloved children, just like the fairy tale of The Pied Piper. He used charms, and a mesmerizing song to entice the children to follow him to misfortune.
Music that charms, and mesmerizes the mind goes into spiritism, spiritualism, and fanaticism is New Age.
This deception is found even among “spirit filled groups.” I remember being in a Church for a brief period, which believed this way, and they taught that the people could come and get their daily reading. (Physic words)
This was a so-called Prophetic Church. AND they called it a prophetic reading! If I told you the name many of you would know it. What is bad is it is a prominent Prophetic Church and has an exceptionally large following!
This deception is very strong and the danger for the believer is that they don’t realize that type of music being played over and over is drawing them and mesmerizing them for many hours, some call it soaking, while the practice of fervent prayer, and study of God’s Word becomes all but nonexistent as they feel it is unnecessary since they say they have been “in the presence so long.”
These New Age practices are in The Church.
The Church does not realize the origin of the practice of hours of listening to mesmerizing music. This practice is being done by believers (over and over) that mesmerizes them into spiritism and spiritualism that is widely practiced in New Age.
The believer in Christ worships God with music, psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs making melody in their heart unto The LORD.
But it is never separate from the balance of Scriptures, and fervent prayer. If we are practicing this, we must repent before God and turn away from it.
Deception is in The Church and found among many spirit filled organizations. The scriptures say that the very elect would be deceived “if” it were possible. (Matthew 25:24)
New Age Spiritism and Spiritualism believe that the spirit world exists, and spirits have an impact on human beings. The impact may be positive or negative, informative, or deceptive.
Both Spiritism and Spiritualism agree that we continue to live on after physical death in “Spirit World.”
Both believe in psychic, or paranormal abilities, like clairvoyance, which make it possible for gifted “psychics” to see what is invisible to most people.
Both Spiritism and Spiritualism believe that spiritual healing has many forms and can have a positive impact on physical health.
Satan knows what he is doing, and he has invaded the church with New Age, and it is a much greater problem than people realize.
Pure fervency in prayer for the lost, the church, and the purity of the study and belief of The Holy Scriptures in The Bible is our only standard that we must live by.
God’s Word is forever settled in heaven, and heaven and earth will pass away, but His Word will never pass away. We should be walking, talking, living, breathing examples of God’s Word.
When the Word of God becomes flesh in us, we eat, drink, sleep, and live the Word of God. The Truth will set us free! Knowing The Truth gives us the only way to guide The Church, the only way to correct The Church, and the only way to protect The Church!
Beloved of God, pray for those who are deceived for they truly cannot see, and it must be cast out and broken off by The Word of The Living God.
If this word has opened your eyes, and you realize you are deceived, you need to repent. If you need help, contact someone in The Church to break off any demonic strongholds that may have attached themselves to you.
It is by the power of The Holy Spirit that gives us the grace to remain strong in this life. We must be fervent in prayer, study The Holy Scriptures, and remain obedient to them daily as our highest goal.
Our loyalty is to God, not man and we must stand in this hour and be the light. When light comes, darkness flees!
I exhort you to continue in the faith, pray without ceasing, and remain fixed on God and he will keep us prepared for anything and everything that comes.
“But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:10-17 NKJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
