You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free
spirits of dead people.) For all who do these things is an abomination to the Lord…’
According to the context of Scripture, the Spirit doesn’t give us a 'know-all' gift, which enables us to judge every situation instantly or prophecy over every person just by looking at them. That is the false ‘gift’ of divination. Sadly, many such ‘gifted’ prophets, like the well-known Kim Clement, are nothing more than fortune-tellers. (We personally experienced his manipulative techniques to extract information from unsuspecting believers while whispering to them, which he then screams out as revelations from God.) Notwithstanding the fact that most of Clement’s prophecies are extremely false, he also invites incredibly false heresies, chaos, and deceptive spirits to enter into believers through his ungodly declaration, “We want some unaccountable impulse to come into our services…’
Such arrogant disobedience to Jesus’ direct commandment to accountability is rooted in the charismatic declarations of Kenneth Copeland, “When I read in the Bible where it says ‘I Am,’ I just smile and say, ‘Yes, I Am too!’”
This means that where Jesus proclaims, “I Am the Resurrection and the Life… I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life… I Am the True Vine… I Am the Good Sheppard…” the false ‘christ’ Kenneth Copeland actually proclaims the same!
And Paul Crouch and others confirm, “We’re God, yes, I Am a little God!”
(Mt. 18:15-19, 1 Cor. 14:29-33; Mt. 24:11 and 5!)
THE SIGN OF JESUS
"Tell us," Jesus’ disciples asked, "when will these [end-times] things be? And what will be the [true] sign of Your coming, and the end of this world?"
Jesus answered, "Take heed that no one deceives you, [for great deception will be the SIGN which marks the time, (Mt. 24.)] For many false prophets [and teachers] will rise up and deceive many... False christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect, [truly born again believers.] See, I have told you beforehand. Therefore if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert!' do not go, or 'Look, He is in the inner rooms!' do not believe it... for the Kingdom of God is within you."
The God of the Bible is indeed the God of miracles, but Scripture is not about the miracles themselves - it’s all about the God of miracles, Whom we must love and serve. Believers have to know that Jesus forbade us to pursue miracle-makers and their great miracle-‘crusades!’
Jesus even rebuked the signs-and-wonders-seeking scribes and Pharisees of His day, saying, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of … the Son of Man, Who will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth…” (Mt. 12:39.)
ARE DOTS, ORBS, COLOR ANGELS AND ANGEL MIRACLES FROM GOD?
Remember the three 'fairy lights' that came after the man who banged on our garden gate late that night? They were demons, because fairies, fairy lights and fairy-worship under the reign of Fairy Godmother come from ancient Druidic and Celtic worship. Fairies, elves and gnomes are in fact evil spirits. However, good and evil are always intertwined in pagan worship. As a result, fairies are mostly perceived as 'good' spirits or angels, but fairies, angels and cupids can also be mischievous, spiteful ‘little’ bullies. Why, some can even be downright evil.
In occult and occult-related practices such as New Age color-coding and reiki, (reiki is the laying on of hands in Eastern mysticism, which is fast gaining popularity in Christian circles,) color angels and fairy-lights are also known as orbs.
Although orbs are increasingly Christianized in our day, orbs are the manifestation of demons in the form of white or colored circles, which range from a few centimeters, (little dots or fairy lights,) to a meter in diameter. Parapsychologists also believe that “orbs are spirits or lingering energy from deceased entities." Orbs can appear in many different shapes and colors, but most are white. In occult circles, orbs are mostly viewed as good spirits or ghosts, otherwise known as 'angels.' Some even believe they are “some type of UFO or space aliens." New Agers, pagans, quantum-physicists and spiritualists all proclaim that orbs are “paranormal life forms, spiritual in nature." Hindus and others believe orbs are "the souls of dead people, trapped between dimensions." (Scripturally, of course, this is utter nonsense, as Jesus explained in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus - Luke 16!)
It is common for Hindu healers and other shamans (or witchdoctors) to be in contact with their guiding and helping orbs, as they can clearly see into the spiritual world via their third eye, presented in Hinduism and Buddhism by the red dot they paint on their foreheads. Shadow chasers or ghost hunters, who research paranormal activity, claim that "red is a color associated with an energy that seems to be on guard duty, often watching over a last outpost, or a loved one who has died." Most of those acquainted with orbs reckon that a red orb can an angry orb, a white orb a holy orb, a black orb an evil orb, and so on. Color has always been used in the physical, mental, and emotional healing rituals of pagans. Thus, New Age practitioners place color angels, or rather, color demons in people through the ritual use of colored crystals and visualization. They teach that wearing certain color clothing, for instance, “can let you absorb color [demons] physically.”
The following also allow people to ‘absorb’ demons quite easily: The ritual consumption of color-coded food and water, and the ritual application of color-coded lights. Different ‘color vibrations’ [or demons,] which one ‘absorbs’ through music and writing, or by watching ‘color vibrant’ shows like ‘Merlyn, Roma, and the Starlight Citadel.’ In various forms, these are presented to children and adults alike, and introduced through colorful TV shows and beautifully illustrated books. Marvel Comics and Marvel Universe are known as ‘Otherworld.’ As many others in the same category, they are based on the mythical Avalon from Celtic and Welsh mythology – or rather, demonology. In reality, the nearly countless occult books, films and TV shows, all disguised as ‘entertainment,’ are attacking millions of unsuspected souls with the same goal in mind. Harry Potter books and films tower head and shoulders above all these.
The ritual application of aromatherapy massages in New Age beauty therapy, and holistic healing therapy such as reiki, reflexology, acupuncture and the like are all infused with demons. In fact, most ‘alternative medicines’ and their practitioners are related to some form of demon and ancestral worship, witchcraft, and the gods of Eastern religions.
It is good to remember that all Eastern practices are permeated with Buddhism and Hinduism. Exercises such as yoga, and ‘sports’ such as karate and judo - even Zen gardening and Zen home decorating, all focus on the strange dragon-gods of Eastern mysticism.
The non-religious use of ordinary medicinal herbs and medicine; non-religious exercise and healthy eating habits, ordinary gardening and home decorating, and ordinary books, entertainment and games do not fall under these criteria. To keep our balance in this dark and deceitful world, we must know that the God of the Bible is the Creator of His entire universe. Colors, crystals and lights were created for our visual pleasure here on earth, and God states that “the dead knows nothing… they will not have a share in anything done under the sun,” (Ecl. 9:5-10.) Therefore Scripture strictly forbids us to pervert God’s creation as described in this discussion, and to consult spirits or ‘call up the dead,’ (Jude v. 6-7; Deut. 18:10-14.)
CHRISTIAN ORBS AND ANGEL MIRACLES
Disobedience to Scripture seriously endangers our lives and well-being here on earth, as well as our eternal life in heaven. Occult practices, especially, open spiritual 'doors' for fairies, orbs and other demons in disguise, to contact humans, harass them, and possess them. Worryingly, these guiding and healing ‘angels’ are increasingly sought after among Christians. While most Christians are not into angel worship as such, many have been deceived to accept these strange entities as the ministering servants of God, His holy angels. Even orbs are invited into some Christian services and welcomed as holy angels. Thus, orbs manifest themselves in exactly the same way in these Christian meetings and lives as in paganism, or plain old occultism.
Angel and orb sightings began in earnest in Charismatic churches in 1997 and are increasing at a phenomenal rate. Not surprisingly, these angel-orb sightings also manifest miracles such as the ‘gold dust’ miracle and the ‘falling angel hair miracle,’ which ‘form out of thin air.’ These phenomena, also complete strangers to the truth of Scripture, were named "The Shekinah Dust Miracle," and "The Shekinah Glory." [Shekinah is the false holy spirit of the occult and Mother Mary of the Roman Catholic Church and NOT the Holy Spirit of the Bible!]
Regrettably, the poor deceived Christians who seek after these unscriptural ‘miracles’ were never taught to TEST THE SPIRITS TO SEE WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD. And so, despite the stern warning of Jesus in Mt. 24 and other passages of Scripture, these Celtic/Druidic fairy demons, masquerading as angels, were loosened upon the souls and lives of thousands of unsuspecting, blood-bought believers!
False doctrines and dangerous, unscriptural practices in church meetings opened massive spiritual doors to the demonic world. As a result, many Christians fell in love with their personal 'guiding' angels, 'guarding' angels, 'ministering' angels, 'healing' angels, ‘miracle’ angels, ‘teaching’ angels and so on, while real angels never draw attention to themselves.
For our part, we can testify that, a few times over the years, God’s holy angels did make their presence known to us. However, this only occurred under dire circumstances, when we were in desperate need of God's reassurance, comfort, help and protection.
What’s more, none of the angels ever tried to introduce themselves by name, or make any personal contact with us. Through their complete affiliation with God, holy angels will never attempt to be anything more than the humble servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. They will always focus our attention on Jesus, mostly without an audible word. We can honestly say that holy angels never tried to guide or teach us, as that is the work of the Holy Spirit, (Jn. 16:13.) They have never attempted to solve our problems for us, impress us in any way, touch us, or mourn with us. The very few times they made their presence known to us, they came to do exactly what God had told them to do; nothing more, nothing less, and we gave God all the glory, honor and praise!
DELIVERANCE FROM FALSE SPIRITS
Scripture clearly states that angels were created by God and for God. Only God has charge over the angels. Demons, disguising themselves as angels of light, will even pretend to obey humans in order to deceive them, but holy angels will obey no one but the Most High God, (Heb. 1:14; Ps. 91:11.)
Consequently, if you are in contact with a guiding angel, orbs or other spirits – especially if you believe you are in control of ‘your’ angel or angels, you should consider whether you were ever involved in any of the dangerous occult practices mentioned in this discussion.
Remember, God views all occult and pagan practices as idolatry! (1 Cor. 10:14-22.)
As the ‘whole world is in the power of the evil one,’ (1 Jn. 5:19,) most people fall into demonic traps without thinking. Unscriptural and untested ‘miracles,’ and false teachings and prophecies in churches and other Christian meetings, deceive many believers to open themselves up to demonic control unknowingly.
Through her well-published books and teachings, occultist Linda Goodman introduced thousands upon thousands of star-struck people to astrology, (either through star-sign personality reading or horoscope reading.) Through a lack of Scriptural knowledge, many people also open demonic doors by reading their daily horoscopes, tea-cups, etc., ‘jokingly.’ However, God never thinks any form of idolatry is funny.
Dangerous demonic computer games, TV shows and books are controlling the minds of even Christian people, especially the youth. ‘Traditional,’ tribal, and other cultic initiations ensnared millions more. Motivational speeches, self-enriching seminars and many ‘team-building’ practices are often nothing more than camouflaged demonic initiations into the occult. Fire rituals are especially dangerous. We heard of someone who, after a burning-coal-walking ritual, (which was disguised as ‘team-building’ fun,) experienced severe burning sensations in his lower legs. His torment had no outward manifestation, medical cause or cure, and drove him nearly insane without any form of relief.
Thousands of occult traps spiritually bind unbelievers, religionists, and the children of God alike. Think back on your life and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you any such active idolatry you might have forgotten, then confess and renounce all those sins by name. Ask God to cleanse you from all unrighteousness through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, to set you free forever, and to seal every door that your sin have opened to the occult world.
From this day forward, fill your mind with Scripture and ask the Holy Spirit to flood your heart and soul with His indwelling presence and power.
It is essential to surrender every area of your life wholly unto God.
Above all, grow in real Scriptural knowledge. Become a DOER of the contextual TRUTH of the Word, and as God grant you wisdom and strength to overcome the battles we have to face each day, He Himself will lead you forward in His Way.
