[Part 4 of Creation Series]

16th October 2006

Hi guys,

I don't think the previous thought is complete yet.

We mentioned briefly the various ways the dark powers attack us.

One could be a willing participant or an unwilling one.

Carl Jung, the well known psychologist with his Jungian theories that are used by some in the world of psychiatry - regression therapy, talking to inner child etc.. He received these from his spirit guide, Philemon, that possessed him at the age of 3 years old. This is an unwilling participant.

There are those who continue to seek knowledge before God's life. This is the problem of the 2 trees in the garden. It has not yet ended.

When one seeks the road to enlightment, travelling down Eckankar, Rosicrucianism, New Ageism, Witchcraft, Marine spirits etc... You are getting into willing participant territory. And yet in here, there are still unwilling participants.

They will tell you about soul travel and the silver cord - the connection between the soul and the body. A feeling of forced hoovering and moving out of your body in your sleep and going places, being energised by wicked spirits. If travelling too far it snaps and your body dies. Ecc 12:6 talks of this : or ever the silver cord be loosed...

 The Apostle Paul, speaks of those who are held captive by satan's will.
2Tim2:26 : That they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive at his will.

But Paul puts everything into the proper perspective. Even though, he had seen the screaming demons come out, the powers of witchcraft, the oppressed and possessed set free. He says:

1 Cor 8:5-7 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as there are gods many, and lords many). But to us there is but ONE GOD, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and ONE LORD Jesus Christ by whom are all things and we by Him. Howbeit, there is not in every man that knowledge....

The message is clear.

For those who are in Christ, the gods lose their
power if you have this knowledge. The word knowledge is gnosis - a knowing by experience.

Those without Christ are open access to devils right into their spirits.

But for those in Christ they cannot get into our spirits, but can still oppress our souls and bodies.

Yet when you begin to experience the power of the ONE GOD, The One WHO ALONE is supreme, the One who has all authority in heaven and on earth (Matt28:18), the devils cannot resist and must loose their hold and leave. But sadly, even among the Lord's chosen, there is not this knowledge. We look around and continue see the bondage in saved and unsaved alike.

Father, that all your people may have this knowledge. That there might rise up an army effectual, strong, with their heels made of steel. Heels that will crush every whisper of the slitherer. For Lord, You alone have all power. Amen!

We will look at the fall's effect on adam and eve next time.

Stay blessed,

Tony A.
