GATEWAYS TO DEMONIC OPENINGS INTO OUR LIVES ESPECIALLY CHRISTIANS
Praise God Children Of God, (I saluted you first to protect you and me from the consequences of this teaching, because your eyes will be opened and the enemy will try a lot to attack you in all ways). Once we get Born Again (John 3:3-5), our lives are cut off from the biddings of these world as we shall see through this wide and very traumatizing to many leaders in the body of Christ. Many church institutions have done away with deliverance and praying for the saints because the devil has given them a lot not to and even to think about what they have (Luke 4:5), BUT WE AT POINT OF GRACE CHURCH we shall continue and stand till the day our lord Jesus comes back.
John 10:10, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
So, So many of the gospel preachers/teachers have compromised and negotiated this mission in all ways a bit, but Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.( Heb 13:8). The Spirit of God says in the Bible that We the Humans Know partly of what concerns the things of God and we prophesy part of it, but the Holy Spirit has all the ANSWERS. We are going to navigate through the bible six not major but known and paramount gateways and highways of the Enemy (devil) to the human soul. I hear many preachers and teachers say Humans can’t be possessed but they are oppressed, yes its true but am here to say, both are true.
Mat_4:24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. I will start to mention them and we shall be seeing them one by one in a cluster:
A Occult Family Background!
This is more evidently observed right from the beginning of man in the Garden of Eden. Its when man gave in to the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of a serpent instead of sticking to what God had given him. Many families have served the devil throughout, right from their family root to grand children with false gods. The first two commandments speak a lot about this. First of all lets look at this occult at length, The word ‘occult’ comes from a Latin word for ‘hidden.’ It is a collection of beliefs and practices founded on the premise that humans can tap into a supernatural world. Once connected to this other realm, various rituals and special knowledge are used by those involved in the occult to allow a person to gain abilities and power they would otherwise not possess. These powers include controlling the nature world or other people.
Biblically, the occult is any practice that tries to gain supernatural power, abilities, or knowledge apart from the creator God. The Bible is clear regarding what the Eternal thinks about man’s foolish attempts to circumvent Him.
When you come to the land which the LORD your God gives you, you shall not learn to do according to the abominations of those nations.
There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire (child sacrifices), or that uses divination, or an observer of times (one who foretells lucky or unlucky days), or a fortune teller, or a witch (sorcerer) Or a charmer (one who uses spells), or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or one who seeks oracles from the dead (the occult practice of contacting those who have died). For all that do these things are an abomination (morally disgusting and abhorrent) to the LORD (Deuteronomy 18:9 – 12)
A person can be involved in activities others find occult-like without actually belonging to a cult-like group. On the other hand, a person can be a member of a cult yet not involve himself or herself in activities of a questionable nature.
There are a variety of beliefs and practices that are part of the occult. Some of the more popular manifestations include astrology, white (sometimes called ‘good’) and black (sometimes labeled ‘bad’ or ‘evil’) magic, clairvoyance, dream interpretation, fortune telling, horoscopes, references to ‘karma,’ mediums, the study of metaphysics and necromancy.
Other occult activities and beliefs include Ouija boards, psychic healings, reincarnation, voodoo, séances (attempt to communicate with spirits), sorcery, spells, Tarot cards, witchcraft (e.g. Wicca), reading palms and Spiritualism (the belief that dead spirits can be contacted, usually through a medium).
The belief that spells, magic, strange gestures, etc. can alter or manipulate the physical world, including the minds of people, and bring prosperity and power, is also of the occult.
