Binding and Loosing

Information I compiled to help you pray:

Matthew 16:19 “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

There are so many people that are still walking around searching for the “keys of the kingdom of heaven” when God already gave it to us in this scripture. It is following the semi-colon “whatever YOU bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever YOU loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Yes, it is so subtle but so true. The authority has been given to the believer in Christ Jesus to bind and loose. This is the key.

You bind and You Loose. You have this power so God has already given you the ability to take action and all you have to do is use it.

So what does binding mean? The Greek word is deo (Stong’s concordance G1210)

definition of binding

So when you bind something you are forbidding it, prohibiting it from happening and putting it in chains.

How do we define loosing? The Greek is Lyo (Strongs 3089)

define loosing

So, loosing is the opposite action. You are untying something loosening it. You are setting it free.

Now we will show you how to use this in prayer.

Imagine that you see something happening around you and you know it’s not right, it’s not godly, it’s demonic, it’s an injustice, it is a complete violation of the word of God (this is not your opinion or your feelings). Once you identify that this is not the will of God you have the authority to bind it up and to loose the Kingdom and all of it’s righteousness in place of that!
So your prayer would sound like this “I bind up pride in the name of Jesus and I loose humility” So you would loose the opposite of what you are binding up. You could even pray this over yourself in whatever area you see that you may need it.

“I bind up fear and I loose the perfected love of Christ” this would be based on the scripture (1 John 4:18) “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

When you bind up something you think of the opposite to loose over the situation.

The prayer of binding and loosing is very effective if you use it as an offensive prayer. Don’t wait until you get into a situation or things get tense before you do this. If you know that you are about to face a confrontation or a bad situation you start binding and loosing before you even get to the scene. This will ensure that things are in order before you show up and God has already sent his angels to take care of it before you arrive.

Here is a general binding and loosing prayer:

Jesus, according to Matthew 16:19 you said that you gave us the keys to the Kingdom and whatsoever I bind on earth is bound in heaven; therefore, I bind the enemy and every angel that was kicked out of heaven from interfering with Your blessings coming into my life. I bind every principality, every power, every might and dominion, every ruler of darkness and every spirit in high places from interfering in my life, my family, my health, my finances, my ministry, my business, my relationships with others and more importantly with you Lord. They will not be able to operate in any aspect of my life or have any influence over it, in Your Holy Name and according to your word Amen.

Lord Jesus, You also said that whatsoever I loose on earth will be loosed in heaven; therefore, I ask that you give the angels of heaven charge over me, according to Psalm 91. I ask that you loose the angels to hearken the Word of God on my behalf. Loose Your blessings and favor over my life, my family, my health, my finances, my ministry, my business, my relationships in Your Holy Name, Amen

Now remember that you can make this prayer as specific as you need it to be for your situation. If you are not sure of what you should loose for what you are binding up leave us a comment below and we’ll be happy to give you some suggestions.

**Please note, that this binding and loosing is not a permanent prayer. What does that mean? You may need to do this all again tomorrow. The main reason is sin and it is the enemy’s job to get you in a sinful situation so that you lose the authority to stop him in his tracks. You can read more about this here in a post on Spiritual Warfare. Under the beginner and intermediate stages it explains why some prayers get undone because of sin.

Until then, God bless you and remember you have the power and authority to do this because it was given to you by Jesus himself.

Watch Your Mouth

Proverbs 18:7

7 A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

Have you ever said something and it came to pass or spoke about a situation and it only got worse?

Our mouths can get us in trouble. The less said the better.

Have you ever said anything you regretted to someone? You can’t take those words back.

Words have power give them careful consideration.

Start taking thoughts captive

2 Corinthians 10:5

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Bad thoughts can produce bad words.

Take words captive. Hold your tongue as much as you can.

Ever Wonder Why God Isn’t Hearing Your Prayers?

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

You can’t go to the Father in prayer without connecting to Yeshua(Jesus).

One of the titles of Jesus was the Word of God. In John’s gospel we read.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1).

John also wrote.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth (John 1:14).

In the Book of Revelation it says.

He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God (Revelation 19:13).

This Term Is Not Defined

Although there is no explanation given in Scripture as to why Jesus is called the Word of God there have been several suggested reasons.

It May Refer To Wisdom Personified

It has been argued that Jesus is the personification of wisdom as is described in Proverbs 5-8. This section begins by saying.

My son, pay attention to my wisdom, listen well to my words of insight (Proverbs 5:1).

The Word Is God’s Communication To Humanity

It is possible that the term “word” is used the same manner as does the Old Testament – the communication of God to humanity. This is exactly what Jesus did – He revealed to the world the Word of God. Jesus was the personification of the written and spoken Word. In the Old Testament God revealed His word through the prophets while in the New Testament the word of God was revealed in a Person – God the Son.

Summary

Jesus is called, “the Word of God.” Although Scripture does not define what is meant by that term it could refer to the fact that He is the personification of the written and spoken word. The testimony that God revealed through the prophets during the Old Testament period was now made human with the coming of Christ. Hence the Word became flesh.

Are We Carnal and Bewitched?

Galatians 3:1
O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?

I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard a Christian radio host talking about his son watching videos of strangers opening pokemon cards. He said his son had watched for three hours at a time.

Many years ago I saw a glimpse of pokemon and it looked so demonic I would have stayed away for that alone. But I researched and found out there were many demonic powers this little yellow creature possessed. One of those was psyshic.

Why would anyone Christian touch anything demonic like that?

I’ve seen in several Christian homes objects of occult and new age. Are people perishing for lack of knowledge?

A Pastor wasn’t aware of the dangers of acupuncture telling a woman it was ok as long as she didn’t fully connect with it. I wasn’t sure what he meant but I wonder if he knew how dangerous it was if he would have changed his stance?

We are to be innocent of evil but could they be opening themselves up to evil without knowing it?

Maybe the body of Christ isn’t aware of the dangers of being unified with the world? King Solomon was very wise but yet he took on false gods. All occult is from false religions. They all are practices that should be avoided at all costs. God will have no other gods before him. And the main reason is all false religions have satan behind them being worshiped. Not a good thing at all. Wouldn’t you agree?

Then why aren’t they seeing it?

1 Corinthians 3

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are your’s;

22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are your’s;

23 And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.

Could they be so innocent but yet so deceived?

How does that bewitchment come into a believer is it things they’ve never left? Or are these things they’ve pick up from the secularism carnal nature we all have.

There needs to be more teaching on concegreted sanctified lifestyles I presume.

🤔Hmmmm

Out of Your Belly Shall Flow Living Waters. What’s in your gut?

Connecting your gut to your spiritual walk with God seems to be hooky, but this scripture makes it clear there’s a connection : John 7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water

I’ve experienced my most intimate times with the Lord during a fast. My thoughts were very clear. It was almost as if there was nothing blocking my belly for his living waters to flow through.

We’ve all had times after eating something great discomfort in our tummy. Is that a warning don’t eat that again? There have been sleepness night with an upset tummy. Was what I put in bad for me spiritually too?

The Bible is called bread of life. Bread is a natural substance used as food. The analogy of being fed by the Bible is strongly significant here. I remember as a young Christian having so much anxiety not knowing what to do. Then one day the Lord convicted me I was running out the door with no fuel. I didn’t eat breakfast so I’d burn out really early in the day because my body had no fuel. And I wasn’t meditating on the word of God to feed my spirit man so I’d be burnt out spiritually too. So after I got this revelation from God I would feed my spirit and my body before even starting the day. If ever I felt a little anxious I’d sit down open my Bible and partake in the spiritual food that gave me peace. It gave me clarity too. I had times where I had so much responsibility and didn’t know what to start. After sitting down with the word I had clear direction. Start the laundry first then put away the clean dishes make my phone calls. Order was being established in my life.

There are so many connections in the Bible with food besides it being called the bread of life. Taking communion is using a physical representation of bread being the body of Christ and wine being his blood. Taking it in remembrance not only reminds of us his sacrifice but the antioxidants in the wine to clean the blood the bread to not do it on an empty stomach.

There are references if a brother be weak in his flesh with infirmity and eat just vegetables we should not judge him.
Romans 14 3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

There’s wisdom in abstaining from food if you are dealing with any type of infirmity. Giving the gut a break from food gives you time to get your gut back in order without putting digestive stress on it. When you abstain from food it allows the gut time to heal. Then it processes better.

When you do a cleanse you clean out anything that might be blocking you spiritually too.

Just some food for thought for you.

Ya Can’t Live Like The Devil And End Up In Heaven When you Die

How can I say such a thing? Well, it’s my testimony I was claiming to be a Christian and had no idea I was living like the devil going to hell. A Roman Catholic girl raised with a strict Italian upbringing. They told us to not have sex before marriage but never the reason why. We were taught out don’t say curse words. Well my Grandad told me Christina you have a better vocabulary than that. He never referenced the Bible in Collosians where it says don’t do that. So I was given a lot of rules without understanding consequences of sinning. Don’t do this don’t do that never the reason why.

I fell into sins that any Christian could have without reading the Bible. Well, at least I thought I was a Christian but after reading the Bible I found out I was certainly not. The word Christian means Christ like. Christ would ever do things as doing for sure. People attending church weekly could be living like the devil too. It doesn’t save you saying you’re a Christian you have to act like one too. To act like one you must know what one is.

The Bible was created for us to eat like bread daily. The scripture give us this day our daily bread. We are to chew on that word daily like a piece of bread, one bite at a time. When it’s eaten it gets into our system it’s digested and used for energy just like food.You’ll be full the more you eat. We feed our bodies but forget to feed our spirit, most of the time. Our souls starve without the living word. Eventualy without it you could starve and die a second death without it. The first is your body the second is your soul dying.

2 Timothy 3:6 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

These words feed our spirit and soul truth. Without correction your Spirit dies. The opposite of truth is lies. Truth brings good fruit and life. Lies produce fruit rotten fruit and death.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Without being in the word with correction you’ll end up living a life of sin.

It wasn’t until after I started reading the Bible that I started to understand the error if my ways.

Continual sin brings death to your soul. Christ died so we could have eternal life. In his death he lⁿp upeft us the Holy Spirit to fill us when we have communion in the word and in spending time with God in prayer or worship.

I called myself a Christian without reading the Bible to know what a Christian was. It’s not what we call it because we claim it we are. It’s what we live. The word Christian means Christ like. How could anyone be like Christ without even knowing him?
Isaiah 53:6
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Sin glorifies the devil because he is the father of all lies.When you aren’t corrected you live in deception being deceived. You become blinded to truth. You’ve all heard the song Amazing Grace? If not look up the lyrics. I was blind but now I see.

Amazing Grace

Don’t claim to be a Christian be one! The devil doesn’t need any more followers by default. Live righteous for righteousness sake. Because if you live like the devil, you’ll surely go to hell with the devil. He hates God’s creation and wants for all to live like him without God. If he can get you to follow a doctrine other then one that’s holy, he’ll grab a hold of you.

Romans 6:16

“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”

This sin unto death like I said is not only physical but spiritual. We are made with three parts. Body soul and spirit. If your soul choses to live in flesh and not the spirit your spirit will die. What do you see in a casket? A dead body without it’s spirit and a dead soul.

We are born in the flesh the spirit does not reside in us until we choose him to. The Holy Spirit will indwell in you only when your will is to have him in your life and body.

James 4:4-10

4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

So examine yourself 2 Corthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Heaven is where you want to be for an eternity I assure you.

Turn The TV On!! 9/11 story

The night before the attack I was up most of the night sick. That morning I slept in. My morning routine was to wake up go down to the kitchen and turn phone ringer on. That morning I saw my answering machine had a lot of messages. It struck me as odd. Then the messages were even more strange. I pressed the button and began to prepare breakfast. The first was message was an business associate of mine. He said “Christine, I’m so sorry I hope your family is ok?” I looked over at the machine puzzled.Just waking up being groggy didn’t help much. The second message was my Mom. she said “Christine we are fine, but concerned they closed off Long Island we can’t get out.” Please try to call me. In shock by these strange messages. I froze as the last message played. My ex husband screaming “Christine turn the TV on and call me immediately!” At that point I was clueless and concerned about my family. I was living in Charlotte, NC at the time. So hearing Long Island was closed off made my heart race. There had to be an emergency of some sort for that.

Turning on the tevelision the first thing I saw was live coverage of the tower and bodies falling out of it. In shock and disbelief watching I thought it was fake. it looked like a godzilla movie. I ran to grab the phone to call my ex husband. He said “I think we’re at war go get batteries, candles, fill up our gas gallon tanks!” He said “Joe is struck on the bridge coming out of NYC, they are concerned it might get blown up!” Joe was my sister in-laws boyfriend. He said all of the phone lines are out in NY.

I heard loud screaming coming from my TV. I looked up to see the second tower had been hit. I said “David please get home, I just saw the second tower get hit by an airaplane.” We both paused and were at a loss for words. He told me he would try to get home as soon as he could. That I needed to pull myself together and get the supplies he requested.

I decided to walk to get gas gallons to not use any gas in my car. On the way back a man in a very large truck jumped down and said” What are you doing?” I told him “I’m getting gas for our vehicles.” He said “Where will you go?” Then he looked me straight in the eyes with his peircing blue eyes. “Don’t you trust God?” I dropped my gas can I was so taken back by what he said. I was a new Christian, how did he even know believed in God?I said “Yes I do” He said then go home and pray” He jumped back up into his truck. I looked down a split second to grab my gas can. He literally disapeared into thin air. I was visted by an angel. I felt this peace wash over me as I walked home.

Coming in I could hear my phone rining the machine came on, it was my church they were opening the church for anyone that wanted to pray. I immediately went there. News reporters were outside as I was leaving. I saw a reporter coming towards me and walked out the furthest door I could to avoid her. That night I saw they filmed me inside praying I felt violated. My family was stuck on Long Island with no way of getting out and my thoughts we were at war. I truly had no words to say that might be encouraging at that time.

As I continued to seek God he led me to read Mark 13. In this passage it spoke of end times and buildings being torn down. I felt some peace knowing and some nervousness we were heading in the direction of end times. It was a large blow to NY but many started seeking God over it. Especially those that saw this coming out from the rubble.

So that morning I turned on the TV to see a revival that was started. Everything satan means for bad God turns to good.

Gossip Murder With The Tongue

Who’s doing the gossiping? Just about anyone that doesn’t catch themselves doing it.

I overheard a Pastor’s wife complaining about a girl that was in the church nursery. It was after bible study we all were talking in little groups. She was not too far away and her tone and the stuff coming out of her made the room so uncomfortable.

She had no idea what she was doing. When you do this it opens doors for evil to mount up larger than what you’ve already complained about. We give power to the devil not only in our lives for allowing angry words about another but by passing judgement on another.

Romans 2

2 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

2 But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God?

How many of us are guilty of doing this? Complaining about is gossip.

There’s nothing productive coming from talking negatively about another.

We are to go to the person directly or take another person with us to resolved conflict. Not try yo form a lynch mob of people to agree with you.

When you gossip you are confessing another persons sins for them. Wouldn’t that be better for them to do? They answer for themselves not you.

Gossiping-300x208

Most gossips are jealous using negative information to defame your character. Think about it the things they tell others about you, would they ever share about themselves?

Why Reading the Holy Bible is So Important!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 1:1

John-1-14a

John 14:6-12

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?
10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

After reading this you see that unless you read the word of God you will not have access to God in your prayers or to heaven. The word says the only way to the Father is through the son the word John 1:1 states that the son is the word of God. This is saying the only way is through Jesus/Yeshua by abiding in his word and being covered by his blood. Open your bible the red letters are the blood of Jesus/Yeshua flowing through the pages. To be covered by the blood you must be in the word of God, his blood will flow through the pages to cover you.

John 15:7

7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you<sup class=”footnote” data-fn=”#fen-NKJV-26707a” data-link=”[a]”>[<sup class=”footnote” data-fn=”#fen-NKJV-26707a” data-link=”[a]”>a<sup class=”footnote” data-fn=”#fen-NKJV-26707a” data-link=”[a]”>] will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

2-timothy-3-16-kjv

Without correction from the word of God sin will get strong on our lives. It will become a stronghold and turn into iniquity. This is why Jesus/Yeshua says.

Matthew 7:21-23

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

How many would agree reading the bible is a good idea? Please comment below.

What Is New Age/Occult? Why Is It So Dangerous?

Let me first start with this.

Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

These practices bring people into a non-biblical awareness of the esoteric. By adding to the bible they created a new doctrine and a false one. This has caused many churches to be Laeodacia churches, with the Lord who was once welcome there to be knoncking on their door to come back in. Churches are being fooled by the strange fire because it too has power. The occultic practices have replaced the biblical ones. The scripture Revelation 22:18 is very clear to not only steer clear but what will happen to you or your church if you do these things.

This alone should scare people from adding anything to the church or ministry of Christ. But many have been seduced led astray with false doctrines. I’ve heard preachers say, when I use these types of practices ministry is much faster. Beware! You are being deceived, speed was never an option with the ministry of Christ. It’s only God speed when the Lord chooses it to be.

God is mysterious and he will do what he chooses to do. This is why we are to seek his face. Yeshua(Jesus) said I do nothing but the will of my Father. That being said do you really think the Lord would want new age in his church? In order to seek his will and not miss the mark we must line everything up with his word of God.

Ephesians 1:9-12

9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

The world is looking for answers most are looking in the wrong places. We must line our doctrines up with the Holy Bible. It is not only the oldest recorded word in history, it is the inspired word of God. The bible teaches us how to minister=help people. It teaches us how to pray and what we should be doing to see people set free or healed. Somehow the snake slithered his way into the church body and up to pulpits of many churches.

New Age is known as self help, making yourself into the great I am. I can do this without God, his word or prayer. I have a better way. It always stems from false religions or false doctrines. All of it has satan hidden behind it. The word occult means something hidden. Why would the devil want to hide behind these practices? He’s doing it to get you to indirectly worship him. The kingdom of darkness always mimics Gods. An example of this is when Moses threw down his staff it turned into a snake(well technically a crocodile, but we wont get into that now you may want to look into that). The pharisees threw down their staffs and they turned into snakes too. God’s snake ate all of their snakes, showing the higher power comes from God and that the kingdom of darkness has power too. Being that the enemy’s only power is what we give him. It makes sense he would be the author of confusion, creating false religions to hide himself behind to get worship. “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me” (Hebrew: לא יהיה־לך אלהים אחרים על־פני‬) is one of the Ten Commandments found in the Bible at Exodus 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. 3 Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 4 thou shalt not bow down unto them, nor serve them; for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; 5 and showing mercy unto the thousandth generation of them that love Me and keep My commandments. {S} 6 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain.

Deuteronomy 5:6 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.

Having no god before him means worshiping him alone. When you practice these occultic practices it causes you to be worshiping false gods. How you say? Well, I’ll use yoga as an example. In yoga each movement is a prayer to hindu god. The word yoga actually means hindu practice. Now as a Christian we can not be a hindu, so anyone doing this is opening their life open to confusion along with demonic entities.
Here’s a list of other occultic and new age practices:

Occult-Practices

Be In Health -Occultism

Click link above to watch

Why are these practices so dangerous?

All of the above list may come across as innocent things, some present themselves as God sent things. and all are no doubt on my mind from the devil. Hebrews 2:14-15 14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Occult activity rejects God’s will for mankind. Occult practice is hazardous because it is a violation of the will of God. It is forbidden by God and even pronounced to be an “abomination” to Him Deuteronomy 18:9-12 9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.10 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.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.

The only power has is what we give him. If a person opens themselves up to any of these they will have a measure of grace from God to get it right. But if they continue in them they will in no doubt have demonic involvement of some sort. It will cause health issues or anxiety. Romans 6:23 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

These 5 verses are giving all of us major warnings from the Lord on what specific areas of the occult that we are to avoid like the plague. To be forewarned is to be properly armed.

  • “There shall not be found among you anyone who makes His son or daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures up spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.” (Deuteronomy 18:10-13)
  • “And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them …” (Deuteronomy 4:19)
  • “Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.” (Leviticus 19:31)
  • “And the person who turns after mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people.” (Leviticus 20:6)
  • “So Saul died for His unfaithfulness which he had committed against the Lord because He did not keep the word of the Lord, and also because He consulted a medium for guidance.” (1 Chronicles 10:13)

“Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.” —Hebrews 13:9

I personally renounced all practices I found the devil had duped me into dabbling in. I also went trough deliverance and healing too. I would say to anyone that has gotten involved please seek the Lord for guidance in removing any ungodly influences over your life.

Here are some steps you can take:

  • Confess the specific activity before God as a sin and ask for His forgiveness.
  • Renounce the specific activity before God and tell Him that you will never, ever participate in that activity again.
  • Burn or throw away all books, objects, or items associated with this activity.
  • Directly engage with the demons by speaking out loud to the them, telling them they no longer have any legal right to stay attached to you since the occult activity has now been fully confessed and fully renounced before God the Father.
  • Then command them to now leave you in the name of Jesus Christ and for them to never, ever come back on you again.

You should seek a full gospel church that may help you in deliverance from any thing that may have attached itself to you as a result of an open door with these activities.

Be blessed because we are victorious in Christ! Don’t allow the enemy to beat yourself up for being duped. It has happened to the best of us. It’s time for us to stop and be that pure bride he’s coming for.
