Cathedrals and the Devil (6-19-17)

  Monday, June 19, 2017

 

The painting above appears in the Cathedral of Antwerp, Belgium. Construction on this magnificent cathedral started in 1352. I took the photo with my iPhone during our recent Exorcism Invasion of Europe. If you’re looking at this on a smartphone you might not catch the details of the Archangel Michael casting out Satan’s demons from Heaven. On the right is a closeup of the lower, left corner of the painting, showing the hideous faces of two demons. The entire painting is at least six feet tall.

As I quietly and reverently walked through this ancient edifice, I was struck by this painting, on display in a building which is essentially a museum, certainly not a place overcrowded with worshippers. There, in the middle of this venerable church, was an artistic rendering of what I deal with almost every day of my life. Archangel Michael was depicted vanquishing the powers of darkness. There could be no mistake that this artist from nearly 500 years ago took demons as seriously as I do. This oil was no psychological construct of inner angst. Frans Floris took his theme quite literally, as I’m sure the priests and parishioners of his day did.

I’ve been to Europe many times and always find it remarkable that the continent is filled with such majestic houses of worship, mostly relics of the past, amazing to behold but with little practical spiritual relevance. As this painting illustrates, Europe was once alive with faith and Christian influence. Today, few attend churches. As I stood just outside this holy place, two Satanists walked by, dressed in black head to foot, and sporting T-shirts with pentagrams.

How could this happen to a continent so rife with religion centuries ago? It didn’t take place overnight. Slowly people prospered and lost their “first love” (Rev. 2:4). Clergy became more focused on power and recognition Religion became a means to an end, not the end of all man’s searching. Don’t think it can’t happen in America. It already has, to a tragic extent. We’re just a few decades behind Europe. Yet, if we read this roadmap for the signs of spiritual apostasy and lukewarm theology, we may avoid Europe’s moral decline. One way to do that is to recognize the enemy, as did Frans Floris, and join Michael in the eternal battle against the demons of Hell!

An encouraging word: BLESSED AND COVERED.
Psalm 32:1 reminds us that the man whose sins are forgiven is “blessed.” The verse goes on to say such a blessed person also has his sins “covered.” Remember how Adam and Eve covered their nakedness once God confronted them for their sin? They instinctively knew they could not talk to God without being covered. For them, there was no Cross, no Blood, no Atonement. Their evil was exposed, and they grabbed fig leaves as a way of covering shame before God. For Christians this side of the Cross, there is no need for humiliation or fig leaves when approaching God. We who are saved, have the righteousness of Christ as our covering (Philippians 3:9). Remember that if the devil tries to torment you with condemnation.

Exorcism is Inevitable (6-5-17)

  Monday, June 5, 2017

 

DEMONS DON’T LEAVE . . .
ON THEIR OWN!
They must be exorcised!

 

Every other week, our YouTube Exorcism Channel features an interesting question that focuses on some truth about spiritual warfare. We receive so many hundreds of questions that it’s impossible to answer all of them. Some are uniquely important. They need an immediate response. Such is the question posed by a man named Evans who lives in Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa. Evan asks, “Is it possible for a Christian who has demons to live a biblically consistent life until the demons become weak and possibly leave by themselves? Do the demons eventually find the environment uninhabitable?

No! Demons never leave of their own accord. No matter how close to the Lord an individual gets, or how uncomfortable an indwelling demon may be because of the host’s faith, that evil spirit isn’t going until he is told to go. If the host of an indwelling demon is to be completely free from evil intrusion, an exorcism is inevitable. One an evil spirit has invaded a human, it is the nature of that fallen angel to fight to occupy the territory that they claim. When confronted and made to manifest, demons say things such as, “This is my home”; “He/she wants me”; “I’ve been here too long to leave”; “I can’t give up my assignment.” Most fight tenaciously. Even weakened demons don’t voluntarily leave. The nearest I have come to a demon being cooperative is when the invading spirit says, “I don’t like it here anymore. He/she prays too much.” But even then, they must be commanded to leave.

When Jesus confronted the spirits Legion, he told them, “Come out of him” (Matthew 5:8). These evil spirits knew who Jesus was and didn’t want to suffer at His hands. In the previous verse 5:7, they begged not to be tormented. They knew that Christ was coming to the country of the Gadarenes, but they did not pre-emptively skedaddle. They knew they would suffer at the hands of Christ, the Son of God, but still stood their ground, to the point of begging not to go (Matthew 5:10). If demons didn’t leave because Jesus was about to confront them, your demons aren’t going because you fast and pray. Such spiritual preparation is important to get ready for your deliverance, but you’re still going to need an exorcism. Soaking prayer won’t do it. Healing therapy won’t suffice. Demons only obey the command of Christ to leave. To have complete freedom exorcism can’t be avoided. It’s inevitable.


An encouraging word: PRESUMPTUOUS SINS
What opens the door to addiction in a Christian’s life? Psalm 19:13 says, “Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me.” Presumptuous sins are those that you know are wrong before you do them. Have you ever thought, “I know this is wrong, but I can do it and later repent?” This is yielding your will to the enemy. If you continue, this sin will gain “dominion” over you, meaning it will get to the point that you (outside of God’s intervention) will be unable to resist it. This is how every addiction takes root! Stop addiction in its track. Repent (turn around) BEFORE you sin!

Manchester Murders (5-29-17)

  Monday, May 29, 2017

Youth fleeing bomb at May 22 Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

Most have understood our recent missions to war-torn Ukraine. Supporters of our ministry comprehend the vision to, each year, train more than 1,000 future pastors to cast out demons. But response to our upcoming Exorcism Invasion of Europe hasn’t had equal enthusiasm. England? Norway? Belgium? Netherlands? Ireland? Can’t I find enough demons at home without the expense of traveling across the ocean? Surely, the unspeakable tragedy in Manchester, England this past week silences any questions about why we’re taking deliverance to the great cities of Europe. The cowardly, terrorist killing of 23 young people at a pop concert forcefully emphasizes how important it is to confront Satan and his demons. Have we so soon forgotten the Belgium airport bombing of March 2016, when32 people were killed and 300 were injured? Or the 2011 slaughter in Norway when Anders Breivik murdered 69 youth at a summer camp and then set off a bomb in Oslo?

Combatting the demons behind mass murder and terrorism is needed to stop the killing. Governments must be vigilant. Security agencies and police must do their jobs. But this is ultimately a spiritual war. That’s why I’m going to Europe to drive back the devil. If we don’t, who will? No other ministry of deliverance has been so favored by the secular media and able to have a nationwide impact. God has called us for such a time as this, and we cannot stand by while innocent children are murdered. Salman Abedi, the Manchester murderer. was demon possessed. How else can we explain such an unspeakable crime? This coming Friday night, June 2, I’ll be in London, England, to take on the Powers of Darkness that want to destroy the nation of Great Britain. Pray for me. AND PLEASE support this mission.

I’ve had to charge thousands of dollars on credit card to finance mission. Consequently, we’re more than $25,000 in debt. Meeting halls in Europe are enormously expensive. Plus, hotels and plane flights getting from place to place. But we can’t stand back and wait for someone else to stand in the gap. By the time we depart Europe, we’re determined to leave behind a motivated army of Christians, aware of demonic activity, determined to fight back in the name of Jesus.

An encouraging word: HE IS YOUR LORD!
“LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth,” David declared in Psalm 8:1. Focus on the word “our.” The Lord God Jehovah, creator of the entire universe, ruler of all thrones and dominions, the I AM is OUR Lord. That’s a pretty big God and a very wonderful relationship. Your God is not like the Brahma of Hinduism who arose out of a lotus flower, or the Buddha of eastern mysticism who had to sit under a bodhi tree to get enlightened. Before anything was, He existed, and He now calls you his friend. His name is majestic, and He is OUR Lord. He is YOUR Lord.

Demon Weed (5-22-17)

  Monday, May 22, 2017

 

Hindu god Shiva being given marijuana.
Parvati, goddess of fertility, dispenses it.
Sex, drugs and . . . demons!

 

Here’s something you may not know. As an exorcist, I spend considerable time ministering to those addicted to all kinds of drugs. Because of this experience, I’ve observed several things about the process of addiction. First, the effect of drugs on people behaviorally and spiritually. Second, which drugs are the worst. The answer to the latter is easy, meth. It burns the brain. It induces psychosis and all kinds of mania and paranoia. Its effect is lasting, even long after a meth addict has become a Christian. But in second place to meth is pot. Weed. Marijuana. It’s a killer, but not like heroin or crack. It’s a slow killer, and it’s the drug that is a gateway to all others. Almost 100% of all demonized addicts I’ve encountered, and they number in the hundreds, started out with marijuana as their initial drug of choice. And get this. My observational data reveals that more people get demons from pot than any other drug!

Case in point. I recently did a Personal Spiritual Encounter with a pothead, a Christian, who vehemently defended his right as a Believer to smoke weed. I directed him to an online entry of the journal “Psychology Today,” one of the top 10 consumer magazines. In an article entitled “History of Cannabis in India” the magazine states, “Cannabis has a long history . . . in the Vedas, sacred Hindu texts.” The article further discloses something which I’ve known for years, namely, that marijuana (ganja, bhang) was believed by Hindus as far back as 4,000 years ago to be inhabited by “guardian angels” (read that demons). The article further states that, “The god Shiva is frequently associated with cannabis.” (Shiva, known as the god of death and destruction, is one of the three principle deities in Hinduism.)
More could be said, but isn’t this enough for any Christian to think twice about claiming Christ and smoking weed? Yet some do. I’ve met these defenders of getting high and heard all their fallacious arguments. Countless times demons manifesting in drug addicts have admitted that they got there by the gateway of marijuana and pushed their host on to harder drugs. In case the reader is too purple-hazed to get my point, pot will get you demons and those demons will spur you on to even worse drugs to seal the doom of your addiction. To avoid the demons of weed, don’t take the first whiff. That “sweet leaf” may come wafting your way with a demon you didn’t plan on getting.

 

An encouraging word: CHRIST IS THE ANSWER
Every day we hear about troubled souls turning to New Age quackery for help. It may be crystals, sweat lodges, vision quests, hypnosis, past life therapy or some other silliness. The story is always the same. It helps for a while but then things get worse. That’s what they tell me when they come for an exorcism. If these deceived individuals would have sought Jesus first they could have saved themselves a lot of trouble. These occult diversions don’t help and only increase the torment. CHRIST IS THE ANSWER! He promised, “My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you” (John 14:27).

Exorcism Invasion of Europe! (5-15-17)

  Monday, May 15, 2017
THE FIRST EXORCISM TOUR OF EUROPE’S GREATEST CITIES! 
What I need to share with you is so important that we’re combining our usual “Blog” and “Ministry Update” into a single report about our Mission to Europe June 2-14.
I’ve been privileged to minister in more than 100 countries and 6 of the 7 continents. (I haven’t cast out demons yet in Antarctica, but who knows?) The last six years we’ve concentrated on Eastern Europe and Russia. Now we are called to the cradle of Christianity, Western Europe.  
 
These cities have been strategically selected because . . . 
LONDON: Financial capital of the world. 
OSLO: Satanic Death Metal music capital of the world. 
ANTWERP: Belgium has seen some of the worst terrorist attacks.  
AMSTERDAM: Most powerful Freemason influence in all Europe. 
DUBLIN: Historic religious city that is now more than 80% pagan. 
 
These cities were once strongholds of Christianity. Today, Bible believers are vastly outnumbered by Muslims and followers of witchcraft and the occult. Only a dramatic demonstration of God’s power will change things. Casting out demons will make the difference. EUROPE MUST WITNESS GOD’S POWER! 
We’ve planned this mission on short notice, with little funding, and lots of faith. With credit cards, we’ve temporarily secured the meeting places and booked flights and hotel. WE DON’T HAVE THE FUNDS to cover these expenses. And it’s just a matter of days before we’re there.  
 
Meeting room rentals in Europe are 4-5 times the cost of America. Please, send $10,000. $5,000, $1,000, $500 or even $100. Any gift of ANY SIZE will help.  
 
 This is a step of faith. We need YOUR help. Thank you for responding TODAY.
