Although the Devil may tempt, accuse, and even serve as a slave of God to test the faithfulness of His Children; God is Absolutely Sovereign, and the Satan himself must first go through God before he can even lay a finger on anyone (Job 2:5; Jn. 10:28; 17:12-15; Rom. 16:20; 1 Jn. 2:13). God protects and shields His people, so the Devil cannot take full control of His children ("toucheth him not" is in the middle voice/reflexive; i.e., the Devil cannot seize Genuine Christians in his grip) because God has Satan on a leash; but the time will come when all hell will literally break loose, and all restraints that hold back evil and wickedness will "step aside" (2 Thess. 2:7; Rev. 9:1-11; 12:10-12; 13:5). The wicked one Satan already has the whole unbelieving world in his clutch (2 Cor. 4:4).

"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." (2 Corinthians 4:3-4)

"(According as it is written, [GOD HATH GIVEN THEM] the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should [not see], and ears that they should [not hear];) unto this day." (Romans 11:8) 

The definite article (Grk. ho theos; "the god") is employed here to describe the Devil as the one responsible for blinding the minds of the unregenerate, and when it is used in most contexts, it refers to the One True God, but the context here suggests otherwise. Nevertheless, we must keep in mind that God often allows the Devil to inflict harm, cause mischief, accuse, and to deceive those who are unwilling to bow their knees before the Almighty. In spite of all this, God's Sovereign Decree wills that such should occur according to His Perfect Plan; we find several instances of this recorded in Scripture where this is initiated by none other than God Himself (cf. Exod. 7:3,13; 9:12; 10:1; 1 Chron. 21:1; 2 Thess. 2:11). 

I will be exposing the schemes and craftiness of the arch-deceiver, and how he operates in this world through human and non-human agency (e.g., those who are willing and unwilling victims of his ploys). Satan is perhaps the most underestimated, misunderstood, or even overestimated creature in Christianity, folklore, and in religious texts and literature found throughout this world. The Bible provides us with the most detailed description of this most treacherous and foul creature: his behavioral traits, character, nature, and methods of deception as the vilest of all creatures in existence, and the epitome of evil and rebellion. He is worshiped by men and women of all walks of life who are indwelt, oppressed, or influenced by evil spirits within the hierarchical system of darkness governing this world (i.e., the Kingdom of Darkness; cf. Matt. 4:8; Jn. 12:31; 14:30; 16:11; 2 Cor. 4:3-4; Eph. 2:2; 6:12; 2 Tim. 2:26; 1 Jn. 5:19).

Message added by *Light*

Our battles are not fought with human weaponry; they are fought with the Word of God and its application in our lives, and through unceasing prayers whenever the Spirit prompts us to depending on the given situation. This Invisible war involves a battle with our minds and conscience (i.e., the flesh waging war against the soul; cf. 1 Pet. 2:11-12; 4:2-3); for this cause, we are to be vigilant at all times, and never to engage in this battle with frivolity (e.g., spiritual overconfidence, self-reliance, etc.). 

We are also to understand that it is God Himself who gives us the Victory over Satan and his devious schemes  (2 Cor. 2:11; 11:13-14; Eph. 4:14; 6:11-12; 1 Pet. 5:7-9), and it is the Lord who fights our battles (Deut. 3:22; 2 Chron. 20:15; Ps. 91:1-4; Isa. 54:17; Zech. 4:6; Lk. 10:19; Jn. 16:33; Rom. 8:31,37; 12:21; 1 Cor. 15:57; 2 Cor. 10:3-5; Eph. 6:11-17; 2 Thess. 3:3; 1 Tim. 6:12; Jas. 4:7; 1 Pet. 5:8-9; 1 Jn. 3:8; 4:4; Jude 1:9). How does He accomplish this? This is accomplished by/through the Holy Spirit's control: His guidance, empowerment, dependence upon Him in every situation we face, and with the aid of our fellow brothers and sisters [in] Christ functioning as a corporate entity (i.e., "the Body of Christ" cf. Rom. 12:4-5; 1 Cor. 12:12-31; Eph. 1:20-13; 4:16; 5:23-30; Col. 1:18; 2:18-19; 3:14-16; et al).

[Psychiatry and Psychology]: 

I have already exposed this mass deception a while ago, and it resulted in deleted/hacked emails and messages in which I made a connection between mental illnesses and demonic activity (NOTHING NEW BTW to those who are spiritually discerning); someone obviously does not want this to be exposed to the public. I will prove without a hint of a doubt by yielding the piercing, Two-edged sword (The Word of God), and it will reveal what the pharmaceutical industry has been hiding for quite some time. Some of you may already be aware of this, and I am certain that MOST discerning Christians will agree that Psychiatry and Psychology do NOT go hand in hand with TRUE Christianity in a positive way.

If one were to do an extensive study on every passage in the Holy Scriptures concerning mental illness, or those who were not in their "right" mind, you will find that in every instance, it was the direct result of sinful rebellion, or involvement with demons, and the supposed remedy to see a shrink or a doctor specializing in mental illnesses is not what the Bible advises us to do -- NOT EVEN ONCE (1 Sam. 16:14-15; 18:10-12; Dan. 4:31-37; Matt. 8:28-34). The fruit of the Spirit (i.e., "love, joy, peace, self-control, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, patience"; Gal. 5:22-23) are completely antithetical to nearly every form of mental illness.

"And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit. Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broke in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always. night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, [CRYING, AND CUTTING HIMSELF WITH STONES]. But when he saw Jesus afar off, [HE RAN AND WORSHIPPED HIM], And he cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou [torment me not]." (Mark 5:2-7) 

Matthew 8:28-32 records that the demon possessed men said, "art thou come hither to [torment us] before the time?"

Jesus had commanded the demons to leave the two men who were possessed by them; and the demons entered a herd of swine upon their request as the entire herd ran violently off of a steep bank and perished into the waters. The sudden onset of violence of the swine was the result of the nature of the demons who had entered into them; and we see this same disturbing behavior in the two men who were demon possessed. The demon possessed men would unceasingly gash themselves with sharp rocks, and this type of bizarre and disturbing behavior was most likely the result of the demons knowing that there will come a time in the future when they will be sentenced to the Eternal Lake of Fire to suffer Endless Torment. Perhaps this was done as a way to dispel their misery, fear, and hopelessness concerning the fate of their souls (cf. Isa. 24:21; Jer. 10:11; Matt. 25:41; Rev. 20:10). 

The demons know full well that even the self-inflicted gashing their bodies they occupy does not even come close to the  agony, suffering, and torments which await them in the Eternal Lake of Fire. This is still going on today in mental asylums, but instead of being in "fetters and chains", they use straight jackets now.

Message added by *Light*

If this were to occur in today's secular world, many would offer suggestions to those who exhibit odd, violent, irrational and bizarre behavior, to make a visit to the local Psychologist or a Psychiatrist who specializes in "mental" illnesses. This sort of advice would only make matter worse; and more than likely, the Psychiatrist would most likely prescribe such "mentally disturbed" people with medications designed to make men or women even more vulnerable to demonic attacks; and the evil and unclean spirits already residing in them will invite more of their "kind" to share their abode by leaving the door open as a result of these psychoactive medications.

One might wonder why the symptoms of mental illness are completely the OPPOSITE of True Christian behavior? The medical term [Schizophrenia] literally means, "split mind", and [bipolar] means just what you think it means, i.e., "two-poles"; which is an unpredictable behaviors expressed with emotions that are polar opposites of each other. Anyone with spiritual discernment can see that there are more than one personality involved when these mental illnesses are exhibited. This mental disorder can lead to Suicidal Ideations; and with most other mental illnesses, taking medication to "remedy" this behavior only exacerbates the condition . . . Go figure! I will give an example of a common mental illness and its distinguishing traits, and I will also juxtapose these erratic behaviors with the "mind" of a Christian, who has the Supernatural Peace of God indwelling in them (Grk. allon parakleton, "The Comforter"; lit., another of the same kind [i.e., "the Spirit of Christ"] cf. Jn. 14:16; 1 Jn. 2:1).

According to Psychiatry and Psychology, BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) is characterized as a "mental illness" -- its signs and symptoms are listed below, and are taken from Wikipedia as its source. BPD signs and symptoms are contrasted with Scripture references to show the stark contrast between the two, and they will be in (parentheses):

  • 1. Identity Disturbance [Unstable Moods: i.e., Emptiness, Apathy, Social Alienation, etc.] (1 John 3:2 states, "Beloved, now are [we] the [sons of God]". See also John 1:12 as to our "identity" [in] Christ, and belonging to the Family of God. Other related passages are: Rom. 15:7; 1 Cor. 6:17; 12:27; Eph. 1:5; Gal. 3:27-28; 1 Jn. 3:1-2; et al).
  • 2. Frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined [abandonment] and extreme reactions to such (Hebrews 13:5 states, "I will [never leave thee], nor forsake thee." See also Deut. 31:8; Josh. 1:9; Isa. 41:10; Jn. 14:18).
  • 3. Splitting "black-and-white" thinking (1 Corinthians 14:33 states, "God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints." See also Jn. 14:27; 1 Cor. 2:16; Gal. 5:22-23; 1 Thess. 5:6; 2 Tim. 1:6-7; etc.).
  • 4. Impulsivity or dangerous behavior (e.g., "uncontrollable spending, sex, substance abuse, reckless driving, binge eating). Galatians 5:22-23 states, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." See also James 3:2-3; Prov. 7:22-23; 19:2). 
  • 5. Intense or uncontrollable emotional reactions that often seem disproportionate to the event or situation (see number 4).
  • 6. Unstable and chaotic interpersonal relationships (cf. Jn. 13:34-35; Gal. 6:2; Col. 1:4; Heb. 10:24-25).
Message added by *Light*

The Bible says that God has given us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, so there is never a reason to schedule a visit with a Psychiatrist or Psychologist (cf. 2 Pet. 1:3), nor are/should we to take any "advice" on how to treat any form of mental disturbance from them. The best they can do is prescribe you a list of medications that has the potential to welcome demons into your life and make matter worse; ingesting synthetic drugs that are mind altering will incapacitate soundness and clarity of mind, and your natural thought processes can be taken control of by the active ingredients in psychoactive medications when ingested, and I am not referring to Tylenol here, but MAINLY the medications used to "treat" mental illnesses. The New Testament word for "Sorcery" (Grk. pharmakon) is where the word [Pharmacy] is derived from, and its literal meaning is the administering of drugs (cf. Gal. 5:21; Rev. 9:21; 18:23).

It's no wonder why many of these medications can lead to suicides, and I can provide a strong argument that suicide is almost always connected to demonic activity influenced by demon spirits. Such drugs WILL alter the state and perception of a person's mind, and leave him/her vulnerable to the power of suggestion; these drugs will impede and impair the natural thought processes, and this has the danger of inviting or allowing evil spirits to enter into the person taking these prescribed medications, especially those engaged in recreational drug use. If you are a child of disobedience, then you are susceptible to every form of attack from the enemy, including mental illnesses: the characteristics, behavior, and attitudes of Genuine Christians manifest fruits of the Spirit, which are the complete opposite of those battling with symptoms of mental illness (cf. Isa. 26:3; Matt. 11:28; Jn. 14:27; 16:33; 1 Cor. 10:13; Gal. 5:22-23; Phil. 4:8; 2 Tim. 1:7).

[The Occult: Witchcraft, Sorcery, Black Magic, White Magic, Satanism, Voodoo, Divination, Necromancy, Palm reading, Kabbalah, Telepathy, etc.]: 

"He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, [AND SORCERERS], and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." (Revelation 21:7-8)

The [Bowl of Hygieia] and the [Rod of Asclepius] are BOTH pagan in origin; one depicts a snake coiled around a cup, while the other depicts a snake coiled around a rod, and this is where the pharmacy logo originates from. Moreover, another pharmacy symbol (the mortar and pestle) is what Witches and Sorcerers used when grinding ingredients to concoct potions for magic spells and witchery. Now I am in no way implying that anyone who takes medication legitimately for pain, improvement of one's health, or to ward off any future health problems are guilty of engaging in Divination or Sorcery, but to use any form of prescribed drugs other than its intended use (e.g., self-gratification, recreational use, etc.), are categorized as substance abuse.

There is another word for Sorcery (Grk. mageuon), and in this case, it is interpreted as anyone who practices magic arts or dabble in the occult (cf. Acts 8:6 -- Astrology, Necromancy, Satanism, Taro divination, contact with "Ascended masters" [i.e., deceiving spirits masquerading as "god-like" beings who impart devilish wisdom to the simple-minded; cf. 1 Cor. 2:14; 2 Cor. 11:14-15; Jas. 3:15], Theosophy, Voodoo, etc). I have discovered that Christianity has been placed into the category of "occultism" and its practices:  this is just another pathetic attempt by the Adversary to slander the ONLY True Faith, the ONLY True God revealed in Holy Scripture, and the Word Incarnate (our Lord  and Savior, Jesus Christ). The Bible gives strong admonitions to those who peach another Gospel or another Jesus, and to do so in defiance to the Almighty warrants Eternal Punishment; this is why we are to test every spirit to determine if their message or doctrine are indeed [from] God, and NOT from another source (cf. Matt. 24:24; Jn. 8:44; 2 Cor. 11:4; Gal. 1:6-9; 1 Tim. 1:20; Tit. 1:16; 2 Pet. 2:1; 1 Jn. 4:1).

"And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a [spirit of divination] (Grk. Pneuma Pythona; lit., a "python spirit") met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: 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]." (Acts 16:16-17)

A spirit of divination is closely tied to a Kundalini spirit, and these spirits are found within the hierarchy of all forms of demonic entities under Lucifer, who is their master; most of these spirits work within the sphere of false religions or forms of spiritism. Those who possess mere intellectual assent concerning the Gospel Message does not prove that such people are [True] Christians, or that they have any desire for the lost to come to the knowledge of the Truth leading to Salvation; we read that even the demons fully confess that there is ONLY One God, and we know that they are anti-gospel and headed to the Eternal Lake of Fire (Matt. 8:29; 25:41; Jas. 2:19; 2 Pet. 2:4; Jude 6). The church visible is filled with loyal agents of Satan who know full well that they themselves are NOT Christians: their duty is to serve their master (the Devil) by posing as "genuine" Christians, and their objective is to accuse the Pastor or anyone ordained in ministry to fall into gross immorality so they may be disqualified (cf. Ps. 101:6; 1 Cor. 9:27; 1 Tim. 3:2; Tit. 1:6).

"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, [but rather reprove them] (Grk. elegchete; i.e., "to expose"). For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever make manifest is light." (Ephesians 5:11-13)

There are many despicable deeds done in secrecy, and the mere mention of it would be too shameful to discuss, unless the sole purpose of it is to reprove those who are in opposition to it (cf. Rom. 1:32). Just broaching this subject will not accomplish anything if the deeds done in the dark are not brought to the fore and exposed with the light of God; this has to be proclaimed through the "Sword of the Spirit" (cf. Prov. 6:23; Eph. 6:17; 2 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 4:12). More and more men and women who bargained with the Devil for fame and fortune are being involved in Sorcery (e.g., "Cocaine, Marijuana, Ecstasy, Heroin, LDS, etc."). Sorcery was practiced in both the Old and New Testament times by mixing plants together in a mortar and pestle to concoct elixirs, potions, etc.; and in today's world, it has become somewhat of a widespread epidemic in all areas of cultural and social groups (e.g., the music and film industry, celebrations, festive gatherings, the nightlife, etc.).

"Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. But [IF A MAN WALK IN THE NIGHT, HE STUMBLETH], because [THERE IS NO LIGHT IN HIM]." (John 11:9-10)

The Bible fortells that in the time of the end, this wicked practice will abound and become the norm, and the Bible categorizes this abominable practice as a "work of the flesh" (cf. Gal. 5:19-21; Rev. 9:21; 18:23; 21:8; 22:15). Many are those in the limelight who cannot function without engaging themselves in the use of recreational drugs, and what they fail to realize is that these drugs are gateways and doorways for all types of evil entities to take control of the one giving them permission. It grieves me that the lost would bargain their eternal souls for momentary "pleasures" that can only do harm to both their bodies and their souls; and even more saddening is that there have been MANY who have already been deceived that their carnal desires would ever bring them lasting joy, peace, and contentment; and now their regrets are too late as they reaped what they have sowed (cf. Job 4:8; Prov. 22:8; Matt. 7:16-18; Lk. 12:16-20; Rom. 6:23; Gal. 6:7-10).

One doesn't have to be fully possessed by dark entities in order for these evil creatures to use humans as their puppets to accomplish their master's (The ancient serpent who deceives the whole world) Will; just as a Christian doesn't literally become God and Christ when they are [led by] the Spirit of God, but their spirits are joined together with the Lord (cf. Jn. 17:21-23; Rom. 8:14; 1 Cor. 6:17; 12:13; Eph. 5:18). All Genuine Christians will stumble at one time or another, but their lives will be dominated by righteousness, holiness, and godliness through obedience to God and Christ; and this is done by being [filled] with the Spirit. Being filled with the Spirit is another way of saying that we must [walk] in the Spirit; this is achieved by allowing ourselves to let the Spirit take control our actions though what is instructed in Holy Scripture (cf. Matt. 4:3-4; Lk. 4:1; Gal. 5:16-23).

"When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and [TAKETH WITH HIMSELF SEVEN OTHER SPIRITS MORE WICKED THAN HIMSELF], and [THEY  ENTER IN AND DWELL THERE]: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation." (Matthew 12:43-45)

Allowing demons and other unclean spirits to enter into a man or woman are done through sinful practices (e.g., "illegal drugs, sodomy and sexual immorality, occultic practices, self-gratification, false doctrines, worship of false gods, rebellion, obsession with death, secular music, etc.") and the more debasing their immoral lifestyles become, the more they are taken over by these entities; this can eventually lead to full on demon possession (Mk. 1:32-34; Lk. 4:33,36; 7:21; 8:2). These spirit entities are known to "invite" other spirits that want to share in their wickedness (cf. Matt. 8:28; 12:43-45), and this is one reason why the RCC is full of Pedophiles; their closely knit bond within the body of a counterfeit "Christianity"of works Salvation disseminates many destructive spirits, and these spirits share a common interest of demonic lusts.

Satan will always come up with new ways to create more golden calves by joining demon worship with the worship of the One True God; but God does not fellowship with the evil works of darkness (cf. 2 Kgs. 21:1-15; 1 Cor. 5:9-13; 2 Cor. 6:14-17; 10:7-21; Jas. 4:4; 1 Jn. 2:15). These deceived men and women in false Christianity are deluded into believing that they have a Genuine relationship with the God of Scripture, when in reality, they are worshipping a false god masquerading as the One True God of Creation. A calf in a creature, and it is a creation, not the Creator; if only the men and women in today's religious system of lies would wake up and read their Bibles. Moreover, their rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft (1 Sam. 15:23), and just as dabbling in occultic practices will invited all forms of evil entities, these doctrines of demons are the result of deliberate and willful defiance against the One True God and His Christ. More information regarding this subtopic will be expounded on in "Sellouts for Satan."

Who turned on the lights?



Hello Family of God,

"No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. For [NOTHING IS SECRET], that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, [THAT SHALL NOT BE KNOWN] and come abroad." (Luke 8:16-17)

Words contained within [brackets] are used to expound on/place emphasis on certain words or phrases; there may also be grammatical errors, such as: punctuation, sentence fragments, and misplaced modifiers; so i apologize if you may have difficulty understanding any content within this message. ALL CAPS within [brackets] are utilized to place extreme importance and special attention in order that the reader may have a clearer and definite understanding concerning the Context of Bible passages cited in this discussion. I am fully aware that some readers may be overwhelmed by the length of this message; however, I believe that this is vitally important and crucial if we are to grow in the Knowledge of the Truth and to ascertain it, because none of us have "arrived" spiritually.

The bombardment of attempts made by the Devil and his cohorts to put an end to my ministry is what elicited me to write this message; these ultra pathetic losers just can't seem to get it through their thick skulls that Satan does not have their best interests in mind. These men and women are under his absolute control; he has them on a leash, and when he is done taking advantage of these poor saps, he will dispose of them like the trash that they are. When God's Absolute Sovereignty over all creatures who oppose Him and His Faithful remnant are understood with acute discernment, it will then reveal that such men and women most certainly do live up to their name. This topic will be [ongoing], as there are countless methods the god of this world uses to deceive the unbelieving and simple-minded; so please be patient and bear with me on this. Let's fight this battle together, soldiers!

"We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and [THAT WICKED ONE TOUCHETH HIM NOT] (Grk. ouch haptetai autou; i.e., to lay hold of or grasp). And we know that we are of God, and [THE WHOLE WORLD LIETH IN WICKEDNESS]. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life." (1 John 5:18-20)
