Once a person gives place to the voices from beyond, whether it is a Charismatic prophet, a Baptist guru, a clairvoyant, a channeler, or Nancy Reagan, the wife of a US President, the victim becomes "converted." They then go forth to preach and evangelize for their devils who charm them. And some of the most zealous evangelists for Satanic voices from the other side stand in the pulpits of Christendom, maybe YOUR church.
This is the end of the Age of the Church, and there will be many voices seducing and distracting Bible believers. You may be dealing with alien voices that are not covered in this article, but I believe you will learn principles here to help with your own particular issue.
Will you be one of the deceived, or will you reject the voices of Satan and perverted men?
1 Corinthians 14:10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.
It is one thing for a voice to be significant, but it is quite another thing that a voice is approved of God and his Word. As wicked as the voice of the Serpent, Satan, was in the Garden of Eden as he spoke to Eve, his voice was highly significant. Evil, yet significant, voices in this world will not go away simply because you love the Lord and read your Bible. These voices hammer the minds of all men, both good and evil.
This series of articles and topics evolved over time from what I thought would be a rather simple and straightforward discussion into a very complex study of paranormal and devilish issues.
Thus, I challenge Bible teachers and pastors to use this series as a starting point to teach Bible believers to examine all things in the light of Bible truth and rational inquiry.
Topics in the series could be assigned to students for further research. Over and over I have given only enough information to prove my point. Much more is out there, especially on the Internet, which could greatly enhance understanding.
Be very sure to bring the student back around to the Word of God for their foundation.
Take the high ground, or else Satan most certainly will.
We will talk about what IS a devil's voice, and we will talk about what is NOT a devil talking. There are both literal voices and intense feelings of a presence. This is on the order of such pressure from the unseen that it calls for a response. We will not talk about suspicious sensations, fear of the dark, or other such normal human responses. But, there are voices or presences that feel so real that we are forced to deal with them as real. Which voices are devilish, and which are explained by natural or human origin? Could God be speaking? Indeed, are some of these from the Holy Spirit himself, and they are his way of arresting us for our own good?
are some of the terms used to describe hearing voices or
sensing a presence.

Voices of people under the control of Satan or God
I told a brother pastor I was doing this article, and he told me this story:
Just recently I had some communication from a preacher buddy of mine. This Brother has a married daughter (just this past year) and husband In a church down in Kentucky. Their pastor recently taught that people are trapped in their dead bodies and can hear your comments as you go through the viewing line! Can you believe that?! What a false teacher! My preacher friend has written to this guy and, of course, he has pulled the "I am The Pastor, so don't question me" card.
If you thought that Fundamental Baptists, or your personal denomination, could not fall for myths and legends about spirits and voices from the other side, think again please.
Hollywood has been largely responsible for the superstition and obsession to hear alien or Satanic voices, at least in modern times. Add to this the mad frenzy of Charismatic gurus and their gullible sheeple who follow them. These people are tossing their Bible in the corner and seeking voices. They get them too, but who is the source of these voices?
Let us see how very serious it is to deal with voices, visions, prophecies, and other communications from the other side.
About 90% of all Americans have been raised watching TV, and now they watch dramatic videos online. This has bred two generations of people who think they are analytical, but they are, in fact, very impressionable. Hollywood has learned to massage the imaginations of viewers so that most people will consider, as possible, things which my generation thought were a lot of silly fiction.
Back in my younger days we had Alfred Hitchcock and the Twilight Zone. We knew we were watching fiction on the order of Mother Goose and Alice in Wonderland. We did not become obsessive in these stories and anchor our world view to them.
Then CS Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia and Tolkien's The Hobit took the masses like a storm, and intellectual university students who claimed to be Christians gathered in dark corners of the student union and talked endlessly about the hidden meanings of The Chronicles. To this CS Lewis added his Space Trilogy-- That Hidden Strength, Paralandra, and Out of the Silent Planet, which were loaded with extremely mystical allegories and spirit world imagery. Lewis was a master at firing the imagination of his readers.
Later, we had Star Wars on TV, and it came back later as a movie series. There was Rosemary's Baby with its Satanic factor. Then along came Stargate and Lawn Mower Man. We now have The Sixth Sense, from which the above video clip was taken. The above video is what we are talking about. Hollywood takes Satanic mystic and devil driven activity and gives it credibility. The power of movies is such that people are now believing things ONLY because they saw it in a movie.
The transition from Hollywood mysticism to church based mysticism came along when Tim LeHaye made dramatic fiction out of Bible doctrine of the Great Tribulation in his Left Behind series.
And now, Tom Horn has published a whole slew of paperbacks and DVDs full of grossly unbiblical mystic conjectures and fictions. He has a matter of fact way of making his twists of truth sound so biblical, but he is playing on Christians' gullibilities implanted by years of Star Wars and ET. The problem in LeHaye's and Tom Horn's fictions is that fiction grabs the imagination far more aggressively than straight forward Bible teaching. Thus, the fiction sticks, and the Bible teaching evaporates quickly. This is why we now have very few "prophecy conferences" in local churches as we did in the 1960s-70s.
The message of all these, and many other productions, has been FEAR. People seem to love to be terrorized a lot more than to be taught the truth. It used to be that movie goers long ago watched such mystical dramatics, and when the words THE END came up, they shut it off, stopped for a bowl of chili and onion rings, and went home with little or nothing in the way of latent fears in their minds. Not so today. We hear youth, young adults, and even older folks taking in the vocabulary of the imagery of these mystic spiritual fantasies from Hollywood. We see the signs of its effect on them in their dress, mannerisms, conversation, and with almost religious frenzy. Satan's devils love it. Where Hollywood and Tom Horn leave off, Satan's imps take over.
And, there you are. You sucked up a batch of the rot didn't you? And, now you are hearing voices, right? Well, don't panic. It is not all that hard to get your head back in order if you stick with reality and the Word of God.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
So, like it or not, I am appointed by God to try to help snap you out of the silly world of the imagination which you may have slipped into. And, that is just what I will do if God helps me and you don't jump the committee and run away. All of our discussion will be based on facts, both physical and Bible based. A pastor who deals with this topic without a King James Bible in hand is probably possessed of devils himself. While the spirit world is real, I suspect you have some very defective notions of what is possible and what God approves of. I will cover many topics so that you can start to sort things out for yourself in the days ahead. The object here is not to cover every good and evil communication possible. The idea here is to jump start your godly mind so that YOU can sort and rearrange your world by using the mind of Christ and his Word.
We know that evil men in the certain militaries, and men in the sciences, are researching ways to deceive people by using technology, while playing on Hollywood based superstitions, to control the masses. Such things as UFOs, space aliens, and Nephilim giants are now being kited into our consciousness by people with ulterior motives. And, a bunch of prophecy nut cases like Tom Horn are selling many books telling you about devilish things coming, and they seldom tell you they are driven by devils. They use the Bible to teach that these things are some novel thing God forgot to tell us about, or they claim we just figured out some ancient mystery because some prophecy guru got a revelation from an Egyptian pyramid.
Thus, we begin our investigation.
BOOKMARK THIS PAGE
There are five long parts to this study. You will not, and should not, try to read the whole thing in one sitting. There is just too much to digest that way.
So, bookmark this page so you can find your way back.
We talk here about evil in people, good and bad signals from people and animals, and we will discuss messages we send people. The following are real, but they are not Satanic. Some of them we would do well to cultivate, but only as long as we NEVER imagine they are spiritual in any way. We will see that there is not a Sixth Sense. There is either the Holy Spirit, or there are devils and their godless human helpers. Everything else under this heading needs to be taken as a human experience alone. You might want to read that paragraph again.
We are told that 55% of your communication is not verbal. That means that when you spend a lot of time at the computer kidding yourself into thinking you are communicating on a personal valid basis, you are totally deceived. God made us to communicate with body language. So, if you are a face to face real life communicator, especially if you avoid online chatter and social media, you are becoming an expert in communication compared to the deformed society we now experience through technology. Even Skipe and web cam communication lacks hand and body language which says much to us.
So, it is entirely possible that you are unconsciously seeing body language in people which is ominous, or on the other hand, comforting. This could easily deceive you into thinking you are getting a message from the other side as the person speaks. What it really means is that the person may have learned to use gestures and body language totally alien to their actual words and intentions. This is evil, but it is not devilish or spiritual unless that person has actually studied deception as a spiritual art.
To learn what is going on, and to apply this in a defensive way, watch this video and meditate on how this skill could help you understand people instead of imagining they are sending you special messages from anywhere other than themselves.
In the video listen for the discussion of giving the right gesture at the wrong time in a conversation. That is a sign of a manipulator. Please understand this-- the lady is talking about very real issues, and Bible believers need to learn about this so they are more honest, AND so that they can catch the wicked playing tricks. DO NOT MISS THE PART ABOUT TOUCHING.
I have seen and experienced touchy feeling body contact which I have at once felt was evilly intended. The lady tells why this is. When a woman touches a man on the arm while she is talking to him, she is hustling the man, especially if the touching is a pat or clinging touch above the elbow. Please do not be put off by the lady's red glasses and hair style. She is well known nationally for body language analysis as used in court room and criminal investigations. She probably dresses in that way when talking to groups so they are not terrified of her.
So, we all need to be very conscious of body language, ours and others'. This is also why you may think you were getting some mysterious message from someone. They may have been intentionally messing with your mind for ulterior motives. If only 7% of communication is our words, and 55% is body language, as the lady in the video suggests, then being gullible about body language can indeed be deadly if you are dealing with evil people. There does not have to be a devil in that person, only evil intentions, in order to send you a troubling message.
Also, I suggest that when someone tells you how special you are, and how much you mean to them, but their gestures are negative and show boredom or disgust, they are wicked. Leave them at once, and do not give them the opportunity to deal with you again, AND I mean anyone, including your pastor. They are trying to intimidate you by saying soft kind words while they whip and batter you mentally with gestures.
Finally, I suggest that when someone tells you how special you are, and how much you mean to them, but their gestures are negative and show boredom, sensuality, or disgust, they are wicked. Leave them at once, and do not give them the opportunity to deal with you again, AND I mean anyone, including your pastor. They are trying to intimidate you by saying soft kind words while they whip and batter you mentally with gestures.
The dude in the photo has his head tipped back slightly, his eyes droop as if you are putting him to sleep, but he has a nice Clintonesque smile. The big clue that this man is a control freak is the tight closed fist almost raised to chin level. This is the personification of evil. Frenchmen almost always do this with Americans, even when they are tourists in the USA, because they really do believe they are superior, and they need to make sure you know it. The gracious words are total rubbish. In my experience, truly born again Frenchmen totally abandon this arrogant mannerism. The Holy Spirit removes it. In all fairness, Americans have their own tricks they play to take the high seat. But, this photo above should teach you to watch for signals in body language, and to take it seriously.
Yes, there ARE people in this world who do great evil with subliminal messages, and you do not owe them the time of day. In fact, there are times when you should bluntly but sincerely rebuke some mannerisms when the person before you claims to be born again. I am thinking in particular of preachers and evangelists who adopt a jaunty smart aleck manner when talking to people. Some quiet mockery or sarcasm would be in order. "Pastor, I can tell by your cool sophomore body language that you are a wise and sincere minister." Or ask the jerk if he thinks Jesus used the same slick manners the preacher uses. Then, watch the debonair dude go into barely concealed rage. The last thing a manipulator wants to hear is you calling his bluff.
Can you find the two obviously dominating people in the photo? They have their arms crossed, which ordinarily is a defensive gesture. But, they are listening very intently, and they are at the center with their backs to the wall. This way, no one can get their words of wisdom without standing in front of them WITH THEIR BACK TO THE OTHER GROUP. The power person thus forces CHOICE onto the listener. The dominators are sending this message. "Do not mess with me, pay attention, because I sincerely like you, and you will get great wisdom from me if you don't join the other group." I did not make this up. Hundreds of books have been written exposing this racket or telling upward motivated instructing people how to cultivate these tricks for personal gain. The point is, their victims MEAN ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO THEM.
The lady in the photo at the right, the one on the left in the group, is dominating well. She has her back to the man next to her to show she is impartial and open to all three listeners. Thus, she has control, and the smiles of the sheeple are obvious.
Watch your own pastor in the church foyer after the service. Do his body mannerisms reek of control? Right, it ain't pretty honey. The sheep who do not join these groups after the morning service, or in the foyer of the conference just before the plenary session, will be marginalized in ALL matters of church life. They are not enthralled with every gem of wisdom which falls from the guru preacher's lips. Most pastors in America, and in nations where religious freedom dominates, will use casual group opportunities to consolidate their control over the sheep who belong to Jesus Christ, not that pastor.
A power craving pastor is seeking the exact same thing the gurus of India crave. LIKE THIS
One more gem on this topic: Do you know what a "Keynote Speaker" is? Answer: He is the dude who is very dynamic in the pulpit, in spite of the fact that he is way off doctrinally. But, most of all, he has the charm to wow the masses and asses in the foyer after the meeting and at the luncheon with dominating table talk. You are meant to go away swearing by all the angels of heaven that you will not miss this conference next year. Marketing, that is the game. Nickels and noses and a butt every 24 inches. So, men who can make venues and conferences famous are paid very well.
Stop assigning spiritual or devilish power to clever people who simply have mastered the ability to project mannerisms and tricky physical signals to take power over people.
Having said that, you need to also understand that Satan wants power over you. So, if per chance people you interact with are possessed of devils, then indeed you are getting spiritual and evil signals from them. Only a close walk with Christ and his Word will deliver you from being seduced so that you can distinguish between the benign mongrel human tricks and devil driven treachery.
HERE IS A GREAT TED TALK ON DETECTING PEOPLE LYING
It is important not to think manipulative lying is devils or external evil. Lying is endemic, and we need to move to the truth zone and help, or force, our associates and family to do the same. Remember, the heart of man is deceitful above all things according to Jeremiah, so we do not need the devil to make liars of any of us.
Wrong sense of the presence of evil
Our family and kids were returning to the USA for furlough, from missionary work in Ethiopia. This is always traumatic for missionaries because they do not know if they are dressed in fashion, and so often they are exhausted from a seemingly endless flight which prevents sleep. Then, all too often the flight ends in New York City. This is the worst city in America to come into in this state of mind.
We got off the plane at Kennedy Airport. I had my passport in one pocket, and other goodies all over me ready to prove I was a good patriotic American with a nice family simply trying to get on to Michigan and collapse. I also had a collection of herbs and spices on my mind. I wanted to show American friends all the things Ethiopians used for spicing up their dishes. But, I needed to declare it, and I was prepared for the possibility that US Customs might take the seeds away from me.
I had my briefcase on the floor in front of me which I scooted along with my foot because my hands were full, with two bags to lug and a kid on my back in a carrier. My wife was also loaded down with bags and trying to herd our daughter along from the rear while I tried to prevent her from running away.
All the other people in line were business people with one bag and mostly traveling alone. They were unruffled and poised. I was over dressed, and it was warm in the airport. Some sort of official was standing beyond the US Immigration desk we all had to deal with, and this man was staring at me. He made me uncomfortable. Suddenly, he came hustling along to me, and he said, "Are you missionaries?" I was startled. He was not from the mission home office in Manhattan, so how on earth did he know I was a missionary?
I said that we were and started digging in my coat for my passport and papers, when he said, "Fellow me." Now what? Were we marked for some special grilling. He lead us right past the line of other passengers, and when we were in the main lounge area, he said, "Welcome to New York, you don't need to go through immigration."
I thanked him and was dazed. What was happening? Was this some special act of God?
In a way, yes-- God made sure that very savvy man was right there when we came along. But also, this was a clear case that we were giving off signals. This airport official had seen so many missionaries come through the airport that he could spot one in a flash. He assumed that missionaries were not going to be any threat to anyone and were harmless. He may have even watched me pulling all the paper work from my pockets and assumed I had everything to prove my US citizenship and legality. And, he knew we had not just come from London-- we had come from way beyond London and were miserably weary.
So, here is the punch line. How good are you at reading the signals people give off? People who are evil are much too poised and cool. People who are innocent of guile are troubled or put off balance by interruptions and any confusion in their immediate area. In other words, evil people are ready and planning how not to get caught. Innocent people are not nearly so casual and cool because they have nothing to hide, and when confronted, they become at least slightly flustered.
In the local church and in your work place, if you are wondering if someone is evil, or they have a hidden agenda, slyly make some confusion for them. If they are suave and cool, you have a problem. If they stammer and have to collect their thoughts, assure them and smooth the thing over at once. They are probably not any threat. Pastors need to cultivate this art to use on visitors, especially visitors who are super suave and debonair.
Also, this story gives us another lesson: Be careful about reading things into unexplained actions of people if nothing obviously evil is happening, and this includes both actions which seem ominous and actions that seem like mysterious esoteric things are happening. Many events in life are simply the result of people doing their job and being very clever at it. On the other hand, a lot of trouble is simply because we all bungle along at times. Take note of what is happening, and watch for a repeat of the same situation and signals before you assume too much.
When you are at the mall, or you are sitting on a bench waiting for someone to finish shopping at the super market, do some serious study of gestures. Watch for the body language of people talking, greeting, or seeming to be doing nothing. Ask yourself, "What is she thinking about the man she is talking to?" Ask yourself other such questions, and try to see patterns. The video above will help you learn how to analyze people. The object here is to learn to recognize normal human reactions, even if they are "normal" in the flesh. This way, when you do come onto devilish gestures or body language, you will catch it at once and know that a much higher level of spiritual warfare may be coming.
Most people communicate with their eyes. Where a man looks first at a woman tells you if he is really trying to live godly toward women and his wife. But, some things are more tricky. You meet a man, start talking, and suddenly you become intimidated by his eyes. There is probably a reason for this. He is using his eyes to attack you. I have given this my own designation-- power eyes. This is more often found in men because they love conquest. Feminazi women also use their eyes in this way.
When do power eyes move on from ordinary human power contests to Satanic eye power? The answer is tricky because the same glare or feeling seems to be present. So, you will need to subtly take stock of the other body language that goes with the power eyes. Finally, what is the verbal message? You may very well be under attack from a Satanic or devil possessed person. The eyes, for some reason, are the most powerful tool of intimidation or control.
Now, look at the photo of the lady above. The eyes may be simply seductive, and the mouth slightly open suggests that is the case. But, The lady could also be using the seductive eyes to draw in someone in order to overpower them mentally and even spiritually. What follows in conversation and other body language will give the answer. In any case, the lady wants something, and a fool will go right along with her.
Gesture that tells you evil is present
You walk back to the church house foyer, after the morning service, and begin to chat with the members. I lady comes up to you gushing with joy all over her face. She stops, looks up at you with eyes full of admiration, slumps her shoulders forward accentuating her cleavage, and then she strikes. She lays her hand gently on your arm, and she says, "Bill, you have been such a blessing to me lately. Your thoughts and help mean a lot more to me than you imagine."
Right here you should know that you are under attack. The words, no matter how sincere, are pure flattery, and the lady is destroying your godly defenses by tempting you to be exalted in your own eyes. If you are a fool, you will say something like this, "Sister, I am so glad I can be a blessing to you. I always ask God to make me a blessing." The lady has you hooked. In fact, you may even start feeling a libido rush right then and there, and the honey trap is sprung.
You are chatting in the foyer of the church house, and one of the leading men slips up behind you. You do not see him until you feel his gentle grip on your upper arm from behind, and just as he grabs, he says, "Sister, we are praying for you and Jack that God will heal your issues in your marriage. If there is anything I can do to help, just let me know, even if you just need to talk." What you do next, dear lady, will determine if you escape the damned hustler and send him packing, or if you end up owned by him. That is ALL he wants from you, and your gullible notion that this dude really cares is simply wicked. Snub the creep at once with a steady stare and something like, "I would be happy to talk to your wife alone some time."
The touchy feely gestures are damned to hell. Here is Paul on this:
1 Corinthians 7:1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
Also, to you ladies, men touch with their eyes as well. Watch where a man looks just as a lady appears on the scene, especially a younger lady. If his eyes go straight to her breasts and then to her face, the dude is a creep. If he just stares at her breasts, the dude is a mental rapist and is undressing her in his mind. Also, to you men, there are women in modern society who are liberated as to the mind, and they also look to see if a man is left dress or right dress or stare in lust at certain men.
These gestures are not a form of hearing from the other side. They are glaring warnings that vipers are loose in your immediate area of friendship. Shuck the creeps off. You owe them nothing and need to get away from them.
We are now looking at the art of sending signals through symbols and art-based tricks which influence people to respond in the way the artist and his employer wish. This is most common in product presentation in magazines, TV, and in posters and bill boards.
The problem is, these manipulative people are virtually seducing you by appealing to your desires, appetites, and personal living patters YOU crave. They are keying in to these, and they are driving you to want their product, political candidate, or any other life choice. The ethics of this is basically evil because the targeted person is not really being helped to a better life. He is simply being helped to part with his cash, or vote for a candidate, and the product or candidate could be worthless or criminal.
I will resort here to several videos to explain this. I hope you will watch them because you may find you are being deeply influenced to action and choices which waste your money badly, and you may realize you are actually being moved into evil choices which are Satanic and driven by lust.
MARK PASSIO, FORMER SATANIST, SHOWS HOW SATANISTS CONTROL PEOPLE
Please understand, Mark is not a born again Christian, but he is determined to expose the evil methods of the Occult and Satanism in the market place and in thinking processes. Mark shows you a powerful use of symbolism which may be working on YOU. It is out in the open but also subliminal in its message. .
Mark spoke at the end of the video about diagnosis, dia gnosis "by way of knowledge," as a self-defense mechanism to look at the cause and effect of what we see. For this study, we must apply diagnosis to all which we hear from anywhere outside ourselves. Mark's solution is to become fluent in natural law, and he even allows that God can be the source of natural law. The Bible teaches us that natural and spiritual laws are God-given and created in the world and in man.
Here is the point: Satan, and the lust of the flesh, cause certain advertisers and criminal intruders to present us with seemingly harmless ways to violate God's natural laws. In the world of making of law it is absolutely required that any law with no penalty attached is void from the moment it was passed into use. It has no force. It might be more accurate to call "law enforcement" agents "penalty enforcers." Thus, God's natural and spiritual laws all have penalties attached. Break them, and you get the penalty.
Recently, because it is winter, and I am not getting enough exercise, I have gained some weight. There is a natural law, well known by anyone who pays attention, that adding weight raises blood pressure. Guess what? My blood pressure is up. This morning I repented, and the carbs are going to be off limits until I can get back outside and work them off. It is not the law against murder that will kill you-- It is the little laws like eating too many carbs.
Song of Solomon 2:15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
Most alleged Christians really believe there are things in this world and life which are immune to the laws of nature and Bible truth. They are fools, and I can assure you that they came to this conclusion by listening to signals from the wicked via advertising and smooth talk.
Wiley E Coyote always has that moment when he is out over the edge, running hard, and violating the law of gravity just fine. But, it always ends in his total obedience to the law of gravity after all. No one can violate God's natural and spiritual laws and pray their way out of it. That is why we hear so many sorry tales of woe these days from Bible believers who were seduced by the voices out there, and they acted on those voices, and..... the divine Cop caught them.
Here is the Apostle Paul talking about this very thing:
Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
The Bible believer has the presence of God in him in the person of the Holy Spirit. God the Spirit will be at war with anything you run into, sight or sound, TBN gush or rush, which is at variance with the Glory of God and the laws of life and nature he created. Your job is to learn to hear from the Holy Spirit so well, and so constantly, that you sense when you are under attack by the Occult, psychology, or subtlety of any sort, even subliminally.
The first question to ask is, "Did I need this product or information before I got it.?" Or, "Did I live without it just fine until I saw or heard it?" We have all had the experience of browsing through these mailer catalogs of trinkets and trash, some of which are very reasonable. It may be Harriet Carter, or it may be Harbor Freight, or some other ad item. Suddenly, there is just the gadget we need. We did not need it before we saw it, and we still don't, but our lust tells us that this gadget will make life so much better.
Here is what is happening, and this is the law of God. Break it, and you will waste money and clutter your life with junk:
1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Will you throw the catalog away right now, or will you violate God's admonition to "love not the world, neither the THINGS in the world.....?" This applies to products of course, but it also works in testing presentations verbally by sales people AND by anyone trying to convince you to change your mind on any topic. And, that includes your preacher, and it includes me as I write these articles. Of you do not test EVERY voice or communication, you are not a noble Christian.
Acts 17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
God's noble saints check virtually every communication they receive against the Word of God, and where there is disagreement with the Word of God, the noble saint rejects the message.
Mark Passio above wants us to become truly moral beings by obeying natural and spiritual law. There is no hope for this outside of Jesus Christ. Man is totally unable to lift himself up to another plane because he is dead in trespassers and sins. But, Mark's point is well taken. Every choice is moral-- the dress that exposes you sexually-- what is your moral choice ladies? You men-- the chatting and flirting with the office whore-- what is your moral choice? The Bible believer hears the Holy Spirit, and he knows very well what the right choice is. Will he do it?
You see, we are under tyranny, the tyranny of self-will and lust. The reason American elected a sodomite twice, even though they could see him violating the US Constitution, and they knew he was not a natural citizen, is because they are like him. There is a magnetism between law violators. We usually call these gangs, but some jack ass Christians call it fellowship.
Now, as if discernible messages are not enough stress to resist, we now look at subliminal advertising by using hidden images in ads.
100 ADS EXPOSED
Caution: No children here please. Some of these are possibly a bit contrived, but many are very obviously tricks by artists. You may wonder about the skulls and monsters in the ice in whiskey ads. This is to trigger images seen by boozers when having the delirium tremors, and they will buy the whiskey to bury those fears. I have proven this over and over myself in ads I have collected, and researchers have shown these to long term alcoholics, and they at once saw the monster faces.
THIS VIDEO IS DYNAMITE
The author goes very deep into the subliminal ad imagery, and he has gotten hold of training manuals, produced by several companies, for ad artists. He reviews one of these, and it is glaringly clear that these companies have deadly motives in their ad productions.
So, in the light of our overall discussion, voices are not the only thing we deal with. We are being bombarded with imagery all the time as we move about in the market place. Only the mind of Christ, as applied to our mind by the Holy Spirit, can protect us from this rubbish. This discussion also explains why our unconverted friends seem to be slaves of profane and wicked life choices. Their lust for things and feelings is fed by these subliminal messages, and their behavior is actually hard to explain at times. They are the slaves of marketing and Occult slave owners. The advertising artists are most certainly sending subtle messages for Satan, either in sexual symbols, or in occult Satanic symbols.
1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
I finished this section of the discussion one evening, and I closed down my computer and got ready for Bible reading and prayer with my wife. The following Psalm was our reading. It is astonishing how often our flow of life, in this case, composing an article, coincides with God's Word:
Psalms 140:1 Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
2 Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.
4 Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
5 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.
6 I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD.
7 O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
8 Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.
9 As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
10 Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
11 Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
12 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
And, the shorter version:
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Assign these nine topics to students, and ask them to research the Bible for examples of Seduction.
List each example, and identify as many of the nine which are present in each example. In this, look at all participants in each Bible example, not just the woman or the man.
Look for any more that are possible.
Satanic and Human tools of Seduction
We want to list some of the most powerful tools in the Devil's too box for seduction of the saints:
Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
This is the most powerful tool Satan owns, AND it is only his. There is virtually no place in the Bible where flattery is presented as a worthy way to deal with other people. And, here is what it can accomplish:
Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
In other words, you are not worthy of this low level of existence God has given you. You can be a goddess. God knows you are worthy of better, and he has kept you back from self-fulfillment.
And, what tool does Satan's future Antichrist use to conquer the world?
Daniel 11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
Antichrist comes in with no honor, but by flattery he eventually rules the world. Read that sentence again. This is what the voice of flattery will do to you. You will rule. But, the little acre you end up ruling will lead you right into complete bondage to the father of lies, Satan.
"Pastor, you are a wonderful blessing to me. I do not know what I would do without your Bible teaching." There it is-- the voice of seduction lifting up a gullible fool in a three piece suit and a King James Bible under his arm.
There is a voice which comes from anywhere, and it comes just when you don't expect it.
It is the voice of Satan regardless of whether it comes from the village drunk or your pastor. This voice speaks to you about things, influences, jobs, education, cars, houses, pay checks, physical health, and a hundred other seemingly innocent things IN OTHER PEOPLE. Why did God give that to them and not to me?
This is what drives the Prosperity Doctrine churches and evangelists. They tell you that God intends for you to have better things and more money than you now have. And, some of you jack asses believe those voices. What proves that you are drunk on Satanic logic is that you gullibly hand money over to a very rich preacher in the superstitious belief that you bought a big blessing from God in the process. You would do better by going to Las Vegas and throw your money into a slot machine. At least there are some Federal Government regulations giving you tiny odds in your favor. Nobody EVER got a nickel back from Creflo Dollar or Joel Osteen.
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
You do not believe that do you?
HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE, UNLESS JEALOUSY DESTROYS IT
HERE IS PROOF FROM A MAN OF THE WORLD, A NON-CHRISTIAN
This man has proven that happiness is a choice, and we can use our God given will to choose happiness. God created you unique in many ways, but the man makes it clear, in spite of his evolutionary presuppositions, that your prefrontal lobes are a special gift from God. What are you doing with them. Do you use them to scan everyone around you to see who is better off than you, or do you use your prefrontal lobes to make yourself happy with what you have?
Again, from the video, what reversible aspect in your life is robbing you of happiness? And, adding our topic to the mix, has your unhappiness resulted from being jealous of someone else who has what you would rather have?
Now, moving on into the Bible believer's world with Christ, suppose you learned, (CHOSE BY AN ACT OF YOUR WILL) to consider all things in your life as irreversible. By this act of the will, move your mind into contentment. Would your peace in Christ make this possible, or would you revert, over and over, to jealousy of others?
So, who is happy according to God? Back to willful conscious happiness:
Philippians 4:10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Did you get it-- the key to Paul's happiness? He LEARNED to be content. Learning by a believer is NOT a sovereign act of God, as Calvinists might imagine. Learning is AN ACT OF MY WILL. Learning to be content, as Paul did, takes time, and it takes persistence. It takes both the good and the bad in life. Jealousy must consciously be denied entrance. No wonder one of the Ten Commandments is, "Thou shalt not covet."
For the Bible believer, every change in life must be seen as an act of God, and Paul, in verse 13 above, makes it very clear that if I WANT to learn contentment, Christ strengthens me to prosper in any state AND I LIKE IT.
I have been happy and content in Oklahoma, Arkansas, California, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Michigan, Kentucky, Arizona, Tennessee, and now Texas. People in Texas usually say they will stay in Texas until the go to heaven. Not me. I will be content in Texas until God moves me wherever he wants me next. AND, I am not jealous of you, no matter where you live. If that works for health, vocation, school, brain power, and prosperity, I am even more happy. And, it does work.
When I check my statistics for this web journal, I am almost always tempted by my old nature, and probably with the help of some devil who dropped by for a visit, to see my page loads as less than I would like. Then, if the Holy Spirit is given place in my soul and mind, I decide that I have just the right number of readers here that God has sent me, and that is as much as I can deal with. I then like my writing opportunity, I like God, and I like myself. You may say that you LOVE God, but do you LIKE him? Only if I go and check someone else's statistics do I then fall into stupid jealousy.
I like my garden also. I like Texas. I like my measure of health. If I want to be any use to God, and thus, to you, I dare not look beyond my blessings to see what you or someone else has. I sincerely pray that you prosper in all things, and if you go beyond me in something, indeed, in everything, blessings on you my friend. Please pray that I keep it that way.
Believe me please, and this statement comes from many personal relationships with all sorts of people-- I can assure you that..... THE PEOPLE YOU ARE JEALOUS OF OFTEN ARE VERY JEALOUS OF YOU. They have deficiencies of one sort or another in areas where you are greatly blessed. The whole issue here is that we are all measuring our happiness by where we fit into the blasted Satanic "order of the peck." This is the voice of Satan again calling you away from your Lord to look around and become jealous.
I have seen nothing more pathetic than a covey of preachers, at a pastor's rally, encircle some guest speaker, a famous Amos Christian College guru, and gush and flush out their awe and obvious jealous lust to get some of the measure of success of that famous guru. If the truth were known, some of those famous Amoses are full of dead man's bones, and their boasting is fiction and fluff.
READ THE VERSE IN HEBREWS AGAIN PLEASE.
Psalms 128:1 Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.
2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table.
4 Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD. 5 The LORD shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.
6 Yea, thou shalt see thy children's children, and peace upon Israel.
Some of you older folks will recall the ad on TV back in the 1970s in which Ricardo Mantanban, the gentleman Spanish actor of Hollywood, leaned seductively on the fender of a Cordoba, and said, "You deserve a Cordoba."
The world is being educated in greed by advertising campaigns. "Treat yourself right....." "Here, this buds for you....." "Letgo my Eggo....." Some products are even named to enhance greed and selfishness. People have been told thousands of tomes that they deserve this and that. And, if people these days do not get what they want, they say, "That is not fair." This trend shows that people do not understand that they are not owed anything. Life is never fair, and mature and happy people learn to deal with the deal they get.
Here is the protest voice from long ago. It is a voice even louder today. DO YOU BELIEVE IT?
The whole objective of Satan's lie that "you deserve better" is to drive you to be dissatisfied with what God has given you now so that you will be driven to greed. The advertising you see from online ads to bill boards on the avenue almost all have one theme-- Get more stuff and you will be happy.
Here is a man who paid the price for giving himself over to greed. I find it amazing that this man, who gives no evidence of being a Bible believer, has learned a lesson many Christians, and thousands of pastors, have never learned:
So, are you the person Jesus Christ sent out into the world after you were born again, or did you hear a voice seducing you which caused you to "turn left at Albuquerque?"
4. The libido
The most common way you hear voices which are driven by the libido, and which invite you to join in verbally, is in dirty jokes and comments. These can come up in casual conversation with anyone, and I have even heard a this when I was with other men who were pastors, missionaries, and evangelists. Some men seem to think that filthy jesting is OK. They are fools whose minds are clearly in their groin, and they are either in bed with whores or soon will be. I suspect you think I am judging too harshly, right?
Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
So, the voice of filth reveals a heart of filth and a vigorous libido run amuck. Will you follow the voice of this man and destroy your life and marriage?
There is also the seductive voice of the church house whore who coos ever to sweetly to leading men and faithful husbands, but we cover that elsewhere in this study.
This one is the companion of flattery. Satan, and his devils in human helpers, will say the most flattering things to you. Will your head swell. Will you decide you need to aspire to a level of life and power much higher than where God has placed you?
Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
When you begin to believe that you have mastered some aspect of life, ANYTHING, you are about to fall. Paul, who appears to have done very well at spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and planting churches right across the world he knew, said this about himself:
Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
If Paul had such a low view of his good intentions, and if he failed to live where he craved to live spiritually, what on earth got into you to make you think so highly of yourself. As a Bible believer, my friend, you accomplish NOTHING that God did not give you. You pastors need to go look at your resume right now. Are you a bragging pest in the economy of God's work? Who is getting the glory in YOUR life?
There is absolutely nothing more gross and distasteful in the Lord's Church than a bragging preacher, deacon, or elder. Read that again please.
Proverbs 6:16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
The voice of the proud is the voice of Satan. The voice of pride is driven by self-exaltation. This voice was first heard before the creation of the world:
Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
6. The Voice of Gossip
Gossip is everywhere. Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones make a fortune on gossip. I have gone into the homes and businesses of a good number of men whom I believed were godly and self-disciplined, only to find that Rush Limbaugh is on, in the background, for the whole show.
I will now make some of you tough Tommy church house hunks mad as hops at me. So what? I am convinced that Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, and Glenn Beck are the same narcotic to alleged conservative men as the soaps are to their wives. The drama of Rush hammering the nasty Liberals is a mental drug to which they are addicted. AND, Rush is a godless egomaniac. I believe Christian men listen to Rush's arrogant self-exaltation and contrived gossip because they are not as tough as the would like to be. Rush is their tough guy by proxy. Rush is a liar just as certainly as the people he exposes.
I used to visit a cafe when I was a pastor in a church in Michigan. I was finally enrolled at the big round table in the middle of the cafe by one of the good old boys. As a pastor, I was looking for ways to invade the lives of those men for Christ. Furthermore; I like them, and they liked me. Preacher, you are not much good to God until you are part of some good old boys' coffee club. Your Lord spent a lot of time with publicans and sinners-- are you better then Christ?
What was a riot was that those men gossiped worse than any women I every knew. On the way to the cafe they drove real slow looking up the driveway of every farm..... looking for anything new of odd. Once they got their coffee and were seated at the round table, they reported what Mr. Eddy was doing now. "He bought that new monster articulated tractor, and he don't have enough acres to pay for it. He will have to lease a couple thousand acres to keep from going bankrupt." Just then, Mr. Eddy walked in, and..... "Hey, brother Eddy, how are you doing? Come over here and sit down." What a hoot.
Leviticus 19:16 Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the LORD.
Psalms 50:19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son.
21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
What God is saying here is that he will bring all those whom you gossiped about to confront you, and you will be made a public fool in the end. SHUT UP, AND YOU WILL LIVE LONGER.
Proverbs 11:13 A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
God is giving you permission to cover things. You do not need to tell all the things you find deficient in your brother in the Lord. Also, try this at work, and you will stay employed a lot better.
Proverbs 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
God hates your gossiping mouth.
Now, our series is all about voices from the other side. Are you listening to a lot of gossip from your friends about other brothers and sisters in Christ? Why? How has it helped you be a better friend to the ones gossiped about? Read that paragraph again please.
Watch this TED Talk video please. >>>>>
Question: Since your words, and even your actions, may be recorded and leave a legacy of your life, what do you want people to remember about you?
Peter and Paul have no legacy other than what they wrote in the way of letters which were later included in the canon of Scripture. You and I live in a virtual fish bowl as far as what people will be able to learn about us in the future. Our USA NSA people also make sure there is much for future snoops to glean on all of us.
In spite of this, lying is endemic in the Lord's Church. Pastors are possibly the worst at lying. My experience with certain pastors I sat under in the past was a horror to me. These men were dedicated, and they were quite true to the Word of God in their actual teaching. But, these men lied over and over in private and group conversation. I am not talking about errors of facts due to ignorance. I am talking about flat out lying about things they knew were other than their words.
Also, there is a wicked custom going about in the preaching world, especially among Fundamental Baptists. This evil was started by Jack Hyles who told stories that sounded very doubtful to begin with, and then his preacher boys have gone forth to churches all over America and tell Hyles' stories as if the story happened to them.
There is also much extreme stretching of the truth in hundreds of preachers. We listened as one bastard son (Hebrews 12:8) told us that he and his kids had to clear their yard in Montana of rocks, and the truck driver who hauled them away said they had loaded 17 semi dump trucks of rocks-- BY HAND. This would have left the preacher with a huge hole instead of a yard. These are the voices of Satan in preachers who are possessed of devils.
So, in terms of voices from the other side, who is the "father of lies?"
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Jesus is talking to religious people, not Philistines. He is clearly associating the Pharisees with Satan in as the father of lies. May I suggest that it is about time that Bible believers examine themselves, not each other, as to lying. We need a whole new attitude, a revival of truth, in our lives. Having a Bible that we proclaim is error free, and then lying to each other, is a crass hypocrisy.
I am suggesting that we become voices of truth to each other. When we are asked a question that we do not want to answer, let us say, "Please allow me to not answer that question brother." If the brother demands an answer, walk off. He is indicating to you that he wants an answer, even if it is a lie.
Why is this so? It is because modern humanity worldwide loves lies. They would rather hear a lie than to not get any answer at all. This is true from the President of the United States, a famous liar, down to the most lowly indigent man on the street corner. In fact, some of the most honest people are those who have hit the bottom. This is a mystery.
It is a prophetic destiny of the End Times that men would lust for lies.
Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
The end, after the judgment of all men, comes down to this mob. Liars love lies, and they love to make lies. So, when you refuse to lie, you will be accused of being very evil. If you lie, you will get off a lot lighter.
The voice of lying, which is the voice of the father of lies, Satan, is craved in all sectors of life, and sadly, at the church house. Is your voice one of them?
You would never harbor murder in your heart, right? Well, let us go to Jesus for the definition of murder.
Matthew 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
Raca-- This is very old and possibly predates Hebrew because it is actually Chaldean. It means "worthless." This is typical of certain words in many languages around Africa and the Middle East. In Swahili we used the word "Pumbafu" or "Shenzi." In Amheric "yet abbat?" meaning "where is your father," which has the hidden meaning, "bastard."
The words "thou fool" mean just that-- "you fool." There is no way around this one. It works in any language. All languages in the world have a word like this. It is the extreme, and it places you in the seat of judgment and kicks God off his throne. God has the holiness and sinless nature to say, "Thou fool" without guile. You do not.
Luke 12:16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
It is highly important to help us understand that double meanings count here. The fact that you are clever at alternative words to "Thou fool" does not let you off the hook.'
In order to give the final verdict, "Thou fool," you need an attribute you do not have-- only God has it. That is the attribute of knowing what a man is thinking and craving. In verse 19 the man was clearly talking to himself, and God was reading his thoughts. Since you cannot read the thoughts of anyone, you cannot give the final verdict as to who is and who is not a fool. Some preachers do this from the pulpit during altar calls, and in this way reveal what heretics they are.
So, when you use a term that goes to the extreme in your language, wherever in the world you live, to describe someone, you have as much as murdered them. Christ gives the same penalty before God for your rage as if you killed the person.
Let us covenant not to be the voice of judgment.
Romans 12:9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
The word dissimulation carries many meanings in the Old and New Testament. Taken all together, I found that the whole idea can be reduced to the spirit of hiding my real self, and the act of plotting against someone so that they do not learn the real truth about things which are critical to them.
The whole basis of the propagation of information of the United States Government is dissimulation, that is, the masses, AND OUR BEST ALLIES, are systematically deceived and steered away from the truth. The USA has come to explicitly stand for deceit and collusion with many nations so that these nations come to distrust other nations if they believe the US Government. This policy of wicked diplomacy is the thing that will one day destroy the USA when the world finally understands that our Government, big business, our banks, and all of our policy making agencies are lying all the time.
Now, will you let Satan seduce you with the notion that dissimulation is the best policy with other people in your life? Will you make little clique arrangements to hedge around other saints, even your family members, with total deception so you can have the thrill of knowing the victim is flying blind in the midst of their best friends?
I bet some of you reading here have never had the word "dissimulation" defined for you by a preacher of Bible teacher. This is because pastors, and alleged mighty men in local churches, are grossly guilty of building a coral into which they lead the saints and keep them totally deceived about many things.
I will give you only one example: I have known a good number of pastors who make very close friendships with other pastors in the area from churches of "like faith and doctrine." But, if you happen to decide to visit one of those churches, and if your pastor learns where you were, he will make some sort of subtle remark to arrest you and herd you back into his coral. Like this: "Brother, that church is pretty sound, but you need to be careful about some of these churches in this area. That pastor has some issues, and I am not happy to see you exposed to things like that." Like what? You will never learn, and that is because there are NO issues.
If you are ready to be "churched" (excommunicated) already, the answer to your pastor is, "I had no idea how bad that church was. I actually enjoyed my visit there. But, I will avoid them, and if I ever see that pastor again, I will tell him that you warned me to stay away from him." THAT is how to deal with a dissimulator. Tie him and his coconspirators' tails together, and throw them over the clothesline.
But, you have NO business listening to the voice of a dissimulator, and if you are one, you are possessed with a devil. That is, a devil is supervising your mind, and if you are really born again, God is about to clobber you big time.
Hebrews 12:8 But
if ye be without chastisement , whereof all are partakers , then are ye bastards , and not sons.
What is the point here?
Satan, and his devils and human servants, are voices calling you to the abominations above. Are you listening to those voices and following their suggestions? When another saint is walking far from God, they will almost ALWAYS come up speaking in the context of one of the above Satanic voices. Will you run along with them and repeat their wickedness like a slop hog runs back to his wallow?
Death Sense-- Hearing from People after Death
Some people tell of a sense of evil emanating from a dead person's body. The Bible does not allow for a Bible believer to hang around after death for any reason.
2 Corinthians 5:6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
You cannot be in two places at once, that is, in eternity with Christ, and hanging around your dead body doing either good or evil. This clearly implies that dead unconverted people also cannot hang around and bother people. Any such feeling that someone is hanging around is caused by devils, not the spirit of the person. What is implied is that the person who died was possessed of devils. In fact, anyone seeking communication with the dead could find themselves possessed of the dead person's devil.
You will get nothing from a devil but sorrow. Get away from there, and rebuke soundly anyone, Christian or unbeliever, who claims to have sensed or heard from the deceased.
Here is Pastor Timothy Gupton from eastern Tennessee teaching that your soul hangs around body suffering rather than the soul going straight to hell. This is a classic example of sincere but very false teaching-- a voice that you should be able to reject by the wise use of the King James Bible.
LISTEN TO THE SERMON
So, the question is, "Maybe Christians cannot hang around and communicate with the living after death, but can evil unconverted people communicate with us after death?"
Jesus told a story of a rich man who lived ungodly and ended up in hell. A beggar named Lazarus, who sat at the rich man's gate, also died and went to be with Abraham in Paradise. Here is a conversation the rich man had with father Abraham:
Luke 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
The rich man could talk to Abraham on the eternity side of the grave because they were both in eternity after death. But, the rich man did NOT talk to anyone still alive on earth. The rich man wanted to get a message to his five brothers to repent so they would not end up in hell with him. He could not talk to his brothers in any way. That is why he imagined Abraham could send Lazarus to warn the five brothers. After death, no one comes back with ANY message.
Any alleged Bible teacher who claims he heard from someone "from the other side," is a devil possessed liar. Believe him, and you will be severely punished by God if you are a born again Christian.
Physical warnings of earthquakes in animals
Earthquakes can be sensed before they happen by animals. The lag time between an animal' s strange actions and the actual quake are not very long, but long enough to be of use. The Chinese maintain animal watching centers to predict earthquakes. The rest of the world knows about this but does nothing with it. The animals will act irrational compared to their normal behavior to each other or to strangers. If your dog, or other animals, get all weird, and you can find no obvious cause of it in the area, you might want to step outdoors for a while.
Now, what if some people have this sense while most of us do not? This could easily be taken as voices or signals from the other side. Again, be careful about interpreting strange feelings as from Satanic or from God. Both conclusions could make you look like a fool to others and to yourself.
There may also be other ways in which your brain picks up signals which are purely physical. Whenever a door squeaks it usually means a stranger is entering, and you need a gun. You are about to be visited by a criminal, not a vision or prophecy. Also, when "things go bump in the night," even if you cannot tell why, do not jump to conclusions. This world is full of bangs and bumps that we have not yet defined.
The booming in various places in the US and other nations is a physical phenomenon as far as I am concerned. The magnetosphere of the sun is going dead for the first time in 400 years. This mean the earth's magnetosphere is also going into a period of change, and there is little or now information from the past telling us what will happen next. All this to say, strange things in the earth may be increasing, including apparent voices, grindings, and these trumpet sounds in various nations. Do not jump to the immediate conclusion that devils are at work.
Unknown and undiscovered energies not yet defined
Kurt Koch, a German psychologist and theological scholar, did intense research into devil driven activity and was very helpful in distinguishing natural from supernatural phenomena. I heard him speak once about earth rays, and I feel like this may be needed for this discussion. Here is Wikipedia on earth rays:
Earth radiation, e-rays, or earth rays, (German Erdstrahlung) are a supposed form of radiation, emitted outwards from the earth, possibly from (or diffracted by) water veins, ostensibly only detectable by means of dowsing. There are various folklore beliefs that hold that lines of energy on the surface of Earth that can affect health, for example, feng shui and mana. The idea was revived by several Western writers and researchers such as Carl Reichenbach (Odic force), Alfred Watkins (Ley lines), Gustav Freiherr von Pohl, Manfred Curry and Ernst Hartmann. They described a mystic force field affecting the health of living creatures that supposedly covers the Earth at regular intervals and may be detected by using a divining rod. This belief is especially common in Germany and Scandinavia. The vast majority of scholars in geophysics believe that the theory of Earth radiation is nothing but pseudoscience or even a hoax.
First, the above quote is only partly accurate. Earth rays are not mystical, and the divining rod, which is highly suspect for dark reasons, is not needed to measure and locate earth rays. Kurt Koch had a meter he used to find the earth rays in people's homes. He said that moving a bed across the room would often solve a sleep problem due to earth rays.
Again, if feelings of any sort seem to come to you when you are in a certain spot, it might very well be earth rays and not anything from the other side as the mystics like to claim. If you get some feeling whenever you are at a particular point, try avoiding that spot, and if the feeling never returns, it was probably earth rays. This will probably never be dealt with by serious science because it is very hard to measure and regularize as a discipline. I included this discussion because I am concerned that we could blame something not yet well understood on Satan and make fools of ourselves.
I need to add that in recent years scientists have defined and studied the earths magnetosphere in depth, and it may one day be found that earth rays are simply the manifestation of strong magnetic points in the magnetosphere.
There are only five spirit beings in the universe. YOU, God, Satan, Evil spirits, Good angels. That is it. The New Age space cadet mystics want to give spirits to the trees, and fleas, and the moon. That is paganism, and God sends people to hell for playing that game. So, when some soft headed saint tells you there are spirits called aliens, zombies, reptilians, or grays, tell that saint that they are living in la la land, and they need to study their Bible instead of Star Wars.
If you hear from a spirit, it will be one of the four spirits besides you, God, Satan, an evil angel, or a good angel. The chances are, at the end of the present age, that you are hearing an evil spirit. It is exceedingly rare to hear an audible voice of God or a good angel. God simply is not doing that since he gave us his Word to read and speak to us, and since the Holy Spirit lives in us. The Holy Spirit will use our mind, if it is under his control at the time, to speak to us. The "voice" will be very clear, but again, it will not be audible. There is a lot of hocus pocus in some churches about voices speaking to people. Prophecies are claimed, and revelations are alleged. BAH! This is all of the flesh or the devil. The Charismatic movement is well known for its bogus revelations and false prophets.
Here are some examples of voices, dreams, or premonitions, both from God and from Satanic sources.
Elisha and his servant
2 Kings 6:9 And the man of God sent unto the king of Israel, saying, Beware that thou pass not such a place; for thither the Syrians are come down.
10 And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of, and saved himself there, not once nor twice.
11 Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them, Will ye not shew me which of us is for the king of Israel?
12 And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber.
13 And he said, Go and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him, saying, Behold, he is in Dothan.
14 Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about.
15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
The servant of the prophet Elijah could not see the chariots of fire. Elijah may not even have seen them himself, but he knew God was there. And, once God opened the eyes of the servant, he knew what Elijah knew. This was a special moment of fear and of feeling trapped by evil men. God did something exceptional which no one can expect to be common.
In this age of the Church, we have the complete Word of God. These special signs, revelations, visitations, and prophecies allegedly shown in some churches are simply not part of our expectation. Whenever I have seen Charismatic gurus who claimed to have seen things like chariots of fire, or who have been taken to heaven, I see men who want to put the gullible followers in awe of the guru. There is no unusual need present, no threat, and no need for revelation. The Bible is ALL the revelation we can have.
So, if there seems to be a supernatural presence in modern manifestations in some local churches, we must conclude that all supernatural power, when displayed in violation of the Word of God, is of Satan. God has closed the canon of Scripture, and I can prove it.
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:
So, any man who presents supernatural manifestations in the Lord's Church today is clearly damned. Any pastor who is not satisfied to teach the Word of God plus nothing is a spiritual bastard.
Paul and the man from Macedonia
Acts 16:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,
7 After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not.
8 And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas.
9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.
10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.
11 Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next day to Neapolis;
12 And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony: and we were in that city abiding certain days.
We must not claim that God does not use unusual things to lead his children along. While God will move in ways proven to be his work by the Word of God, we must be cautious about actually forbidding God from doing anything he wishes. But, the experience in the above text was that of an Apostle, and the Apostles were given special sign gifts, including working of miracles, so that the message of the Gospel would be verified to people being ministered to. Once the Apostles passed on, these sign gifts went away. Why? Answer: The complete Word of God was the sign and only revelation that people would have to relate to.
1 Corinthians 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
So, the notion given by some alleged Christians, that you can get a voice, a sign, a vision, from God on demand is blasphemy. The voice you hear may well be a devil.
My wife's parents were missionaries in Tanzania, Africa in the 1940s and 50s. On one occasion her Dad went to the central city of the area, Mwanza, to buy supplies. He was supposed to come home on the train on a given day. It would be necessary for another man on the mission station to go some distance to the train station to pick up her Dad. Elizabeth's Mom had a dream the night before her Dad was to arrive by train. In the dream she was told that her husband was not going to arrive on schedule. She had never had a dream like this, and she told the other man on the mission station of the dream. This man decided to take it seriously and did not go to the train station.
My wife's Dad had sent a telegram telling his wife he would not be coming on the scheduled train. He would come the next day. The telegram did not arrive, but the dream did.
This is not a case of being given a revelation or some sort of spectacular vision as we hear of in modern Charismatic circles. It was a simple matter of order and a lot of trouble being prevented for two or three people. Also, there would have been some serious fear if my wife's Dad had not been on the train. If God does something like this, it will not be the sort of thing some guru can use in a huge gathering of ga ga thrill junkies to wow the masses. And, it will not be a prophecy which adds to biblical revelation. It is simply a matter of God preventing chaos for his children.
Unclean Satanic spirits know the Holy Spirit in us
In this section we talk about situations where evil spirits know who we are because the Holy Spirit is in us. I use mostly my own experiences here because I feel safe in telling what I have actually experienced.
LADY AT THE SUPER MARKET
I pastored a church in the California High Desert in a town called Yermo. We did our shopping in a nearby city, Barstow. I was shopping in the Safeway super market in Barstow one day after taking care of business. I would take a shopping list and buy up things for my wife. I was putting along with my shopping cart slowly finding items I needed, and I turned down an aisle. At the far end was a lady coming toward me. She looked at me, jumped violently, jerked her shopping cart around and fled out of sight. I decided there was someone behind me that terrified her. I looked back, and there was no one there. I was puzzled but thought nothing of it.
A little later I turned down another aisle, and at the far end was the same lady. She panicked on seeing me and fled the same way. I did not know the lady, but the terror on her face made me wonder if she was possessed of a devil. You see, even if you do not know it, devils in possessed people recognize the Holy Spirit in you, and there is often a reaction which is irrational.
LADY AT THE POST OFFICE
I pastored a church in Delton, Michigan, but we got our mail in the town of Hickory Corners. We drove up to the Post Office one day, and I got out of the car to go check our mail box. As I approached the door, a lady came out. When she saw me she got a look of terror on her face, she jumped a big puddle in front of her, and got into her car in a rush. Her husband then drove off violently. Again, I had the sense that a devil recognized the Holy Spirit in me.
Now, do not get some warm fuzzy feeling about me. The terror of devils is not because we are particularly spiritual or victorious at any given moment. The devil is not a bit frightened of us. Devils fear and hate God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the one who indwells Christians, and it is he whom they want to flee from in terror. In a way, you and I are bystanders most of the time. Beware of preachers or evangelists who are introduced as prevailing warriors. The ONLY one who prevails is God the Holy Spirit.
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
But, the sobering side of this is that we are in a war zone every day of our lives. Satan wars against the saints and the Church of Jesus Christ. So, when all hell seems to break loose around you, and you did nothing to cause it, rejoice, for our Lord is doing warfare with Satan, and GOD ALWAYS WINS.
LADY IN RESTAURANT
My wife and I went to breakfast at a restaurant in Minneola Corners, Calif. After we ordered I noticed a lady sitting with a man in the far corner. She was dressed in black and had extreme red and black make up on. I took note of this and wondered if she could be a witch. The California High Desert was, and still is, crawling with Satanists and witches. Later, as we were eating, I looked up at the lady in the corner, and she was staring at me with white hot hate in her eyes. I had never seen the lady before, and she did not know me. But, her devils knew my Lord, and they were sending me a signal. Good, that is just the way I want it. I much prefer to be hated by devils than to have them in the front row of the church house pretending to be Christians.
DEVILS KNOW WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST
Here is a video that should cause you to be troubled.
Do you ever shake up the territory of Satan by just showing up?
Dr. Peter Ruckman and an International Airport
Dr. Peter S. Ruckman is a pastor and Bible teacher in Pensacola, Florida. He tells of a missionary family that were coming home from the mission field on furlough. They were to fly into an international airport, and Dr. Ruckman went to the airport to pick them up and take them to their lodging.
When Dr. Ruckman got to the airport, the plane had already landed, and he went looking for the family in the airport lounge. They were nowhere to be found. He finally went looking back in all the nooks and crannies for them, and he found them huddled back in a corner of the lounge. They were almost clinging to one another, and they looked frightened.
Dr. Ruckman approached them and greeted them. Their answer: "Can't you feel them Dr. Ruckman? This place is crawling with devils." Dr. Ruckman said he had felt a bit uncomfortable, but nothing like the response of the missionaries. He then realized that they had just come from a country that had extreme Satanic activity, and the missionaries were very familiar with devils and could easily sense them. He soon felt what they were talking about.
International airports are portals to all nations. Many years ago, before air travel, all portals were on the coasts of nations. Back then devils made these sea ports their favorite habitation. All sorts of people were coming and going, and devils seem to be attracted to these points of depravity. International airports have the same attraction today to devils. My wife and I have felt this while traveling between the USA and Africa. We felt it strongly in Frankfurt, Germany and in Chicago, Illinois. If you think I am making this up, go to an international airport, and just sit in the lounge area for a while.
So, what is going on here? This is a clear case of the Bible believer having senses from the Holy Spirit to tell when devils are in the vicinity. This is not spooky, it is simply a fact that you are different from the unconverted, and you sense things which are evil. If you have never experienced this, I would suggest your walk with the Lord is rather limited, and you spend very little time reading God's Word.
Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
There is no need to enter into spiritual confrontation with devils in such places because that is not your calling. Just get used to this-- you are the enemy of Satan and his imps, or devils. There will be times when you feel their presence, and you need not do anything about it. You may want to leave the area to avoid the discomfort in your spirit.
"Ah, as you mentioned about seaports and airports, there is a gateway there. A gateway into the power of the air. We think of air as being an extremely neutral substance, but Ephesians 2:2 confronts us with the fact that the air has evil power, and there is an evil prince over it. This is a mystery. " WC
The expression "the air" is used in the Bible to designate the place where the Prince of Darkness, Satan, rules supreme in the present world. This is not to say that God has somehow lost control of the world, but we are also told that Christ is in the Bible believer and thus shines and restrains the evil and Satan himself.
2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
That speaks of the Holy Spirit "letting," or restraining, in old English, and he does this as he indwells the believer in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is not ever spoken of as acting against evil in the world in our day outside of the context of the Church of Jesus Christ, and that is believers, not organizations. In other words, while we are not about to tell God the Holy Spirit what he can and cannot do, he has chosen to make his ministry in Bible believer during the Church Age. He is not in buildings or holy water, or anointing oil. God has always pretty much limited his presence to his children. The ark of the Covenant in the Old Testament is the exception.
Revelation 1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
God speaks to and through his people, not through sinners. Any voice, from any source, which is not based in a Bible believer and/or the Word of God, is of Satan.
So, if the Holy Spirit is in the believer in Christ, he will be moving that believer to sense and stand against evil entities, such as the Prince of the Power of the Air. Thus, if you want a short course in sensing, go to the largest international airport you can find, and sit in the lounge area and watch people walking about. People of the world, that is, people who are under the direction of Satan, are drawn to air travel. You will even find people in airports who seem to be camping there and are going nowhere. They are inhaling the sense of evil in the airport. Some will be dressed and act in obviously evil ways, while others will simply be sitting in a dull stupor. And, they will not look like indigents. They will be classy cosmopolitan types, and you will see them wearing some of the most daring clothing and toying with their own nakedness.
Those of you who have traveled by air on international flights will confirm with me that the atmosphere in the airplanes while in flight is oppressive in more than just a physical way. Also, you may see some extreme behavior in the taking of sexual liberties. Part of this flight from place to place by evil entities is because air travel people are not satisfied with staying put. Many of them crave being on the move constantly. This is why airline stewardess are often sex perverts and sluts. Not all, but I have confirmed this by my own observations and talking a relative of mine who was an airline pilot for many years.
None of the above topics are issues which need to make us worried. We are a new creation in Christ, that is, if we confess him as Lord, and we are told we are the salt of the earth. So, if we are being faithful to Christ wherever we go in life, Satan's devils will recognize us and cause their people to flee from us, or they may even attack us. There is no Sixth Sense in us at this time. The Holy Spirit in us Bible believers will give us the sense, for a moment in time, to discern Satanic attacks. There is nothing spooky about it.
Also, we need to understand that nowhere in the Bible are we told to even try to project a spiritual aura or presence. We are told the Holy Spirit will do that, and to try to enhance our presence, and how it affects people, is wicked. This is very common in Charismatic Movement gurus who get a far away look in their eyes and then tell you God is showing them something you need to know.
Matthew 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
There will be excitement enough if we simply live in a plain open way and let the Holy Spirit do his work through us.
ON TO PART TWO:
SENSING DANGER BOTH PHYSICAL AND SPIRITUAL
