Don’t worry about being hit on the highway by a driverless automobile. Something worse this way comes. The race is on to produce artificial intelligence, AI for short. Silicon Valley and America’s tech industry are feverishly working to come up with machines approximating human intelligence. But more than that, scientists want to devise a Hal-Space-Odyssey-like machine that can “think” rationally, be aware of its surroundings, and achieve its programmed goals without ongoing human help. The sex industry wants in on this creative curve. So-called sex-bots, copulating robots, are already used in European brothels. There are even child-like simulations for perverts of such predilections. With the leftist, liberal bent of companies like Google and Facebook, do we really think that they’d allow conservative, Christian principles to guide their exploratory impulses?

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal (July 15-16, 2017) warned, “Facebook recently announced that it is trying to build ‘optical neuroimaging systems’ that would allow users to direct their digital lives just by thinking. If Facebook succeeds in creating brain-computer interface, will we be prepared to welcome such corporate access to our very thoughts?”

Case in point. YouTube, owned by Google, recently flagged almost two-thirds of the 300 exorcisms on our YouTube Exorcism Channel as “offensive.” This means, among other things, that advertisers cannot place ads there, as has happened in the past. (The revenue was small, but every little bit helps.) And what was deemed offensive? YouTube refuses to say, and all power is in their hands. We do know that this censorship started with them flagging any mention of Islam in our videos. Obviously, their algorithms are set to a politically correct standard of permitting attacks on Christians but nary a discouraging word about Islam.

AI is on the way, and Christians must be vigilant as to what lies ahead. Sex robots with indwelling spirits of Jezebel? Don’t laugh. Stranger things have happened. Satan may have things in store we’ve never dreamed of. Lord Jesus, come quickly (Rev. 22:20)!


An encouraging word: GOD ENDURES
Not much in our world lasts long, but “the Lord shall endure forever” (Psalm 9:7). As society and government rapidly moves further and further away from God, it’s comforting to know that He hasn’t moved. The Almighty is not affected by the petulance of man’s arrogant desire to rid Him from our daily lives. While America disregards God’s law to a greater extent with each passing day, we need to be reminded of the rest of this verse: “He has prepared His throne for judgment.” We need it written large over the entry to every building of our government: HE WILL ENDURE AND HE WILL JUDGE!

Spiritual Gifts (8-14-17)

I’m often asked about spiritual gifts. Most want a simple answer. There isn’t one. Of course, there are the spiritual gifts that Paul mentions in 1 Corinthians chapter 12. These get the most focus, especially from Pentecostals. But there are other spiritual gifts. Romans 12:6 speaks of spiritual gifts, but places them in a broader category, including preaching, ministering, exhorting etc. Hebrews 2: 4 speaks of gifts of the Holy Spirit, but doesn’t necessarily reference the ones cited by Paul.

My personal favorite, and the one I feel that God has most gifted me with, is “discerning of spirits” (KJV) or “distinguishing between spirits” (NIV), mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12:10. There are several ways to look at this gift. First, it obviously refers to the detection of demons. But it also can be broadened to include insights about human behavior, the “spirit” in which an individual operates. (Often this is an awareness of a person’s spiritual fruit or lack thereof.) Sometimes I discern spirits visually, by looking at a person, and at other times with a God-given, intuitive sense. I’ve not always been as good at this as I am now. Age, maturity, and a lot of experience has helped to refine the operation of this gift. It doesn’t function with a 100% certainty, and I don’t feel It working through me all the time. But as with anything, practice makes, if not perfect, better accuracy.

Let me be clear. The discerning of spirits is not guesswork, suspicion, curiosity, or mere behavioral insight. It goes beyond natural “horse-sense” to a realm of prophetic insight. And anyone walking in this gift must be careful to avoid being judgmental, since discernment can too easily be confused with prejudice or private opinions. Nevertheless, it is something that can be strongly felt and judiciously utilized. In this age of perverted, demonic evil all around us, it may the one gift Christians need most!

To those who feel called to deliverance, especially students and alumni of our International School of exorcism, I recommend this gift as one to be earnestly desired (1 Corinthians 12:31). Seek it, cultivate it, and subject it to peer review (accountability to spiritual authority). Humbly ask the Lord for wisdom on how best to let it operate in your life, not for your own edification, but for the sake of setting free the captives of Satan.

An encouraging word: REJOICE!
Yesterday was one of those days when I didn’t feel much like praising the Lord; probably a combination of fatigue and stress. Then I remembered the words of Phil 4:4: Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! “No way,” my emotions said. Then I remembered the several times that I’ve visited Paul’s prison in Rome. It was just a hole carved out of rock, leading to small room not much bigger than most bathrooms today. It was solid stone on every side. Cold. Damp. Dark. Beyond miserable. If Paul could take pen in hand and, in those circumstances, and tell the Philippians to always rejoice, perhaps I too could praise the Lord for just this one day. The results were amazing. Try it.

Everything You Need to Know (8-7-17)

Monday, August 7, 2017

This simple notice on the front page of our website, www.boblarson.org, is your key to knowledge about nearly 500 topics. Many of you are new to this ministry and have a thirst for information about spiritual warfare. You’ll find a wealth of teaching in our online International School of Exorcism. But what about yesterday’s news headline? Just click on the above and it opens a portal to everything you need to know, the equivalent of about another dozen books, added to the 37 we’ve already written. For example, the click above will lead you to this:

Then type in what you want to know about. For example, yoga. You’ll find blogs such as “Yoga for Peace,” “Don’t Yield to Yoga,” “Yoga in Airports,” and “Mindful Meditation.” If you need help ministering to a young person who smokes marijuana, type in “weed” and you’ll get the blogs “Demon Weed,” “Pot Capitulation,” “Pot Propaganda,” and “America’s Going to Pot.” Type in “demons” and you’ll be directed to “Pastors Can Have Demons,” “Territorial Demons,” “Demons Don’t Exist?” and many more blogs on this topic.

Get the idea? You can search by both title and content. You can even find a complete listing of all topics by year for the last six years.

We have spent countless hours and huge amounts of money to make this all possible. Why? God has called us to provide the most complete, one-stop source of information about spiritual warfare, demons, exorcism, and deliverance found anywhere in the world, and in all of history. Mega-ministries aren’t going to do it. America’s Bible colleges and seminaries won’t make the effort. We have the passion and the calling to put at your fingertips a comprehensive resource center so that no one needs to live in bondage to demonic powers. As Christians, we have a right to be spiritually free, and we can be free, in the name of Jesus, IF WE DON’T PERISH for “lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6).

An encouraging word: THE WICKED SUFFER SORROW
If you take a peripheral glance at Hollywood and the entertainment industry, it may seem like the most godless people are having the most fun. But Psalm 32:10 says, “Many sorrows shall be to the wicked.” Is that true? On the outside, sinners often appear to be successful and carefree. From my experience in counseling thousands of people, I can attest that ungodly often hide their torment behind a glamorous exterior. God’s Word is true. Those who turn their backs on the Lord eventually suffer the effects of sin on their minds and bodies. Heed this warning that a life of spiritual rebellion will lead to sorrow. Those who sow their “wild oats” are in for an eventual crop failure.

Incredulity (7-31-17)


Monday, July 31, 2017
Incredulity – A Christian can have a demon?
 
“Incredulity” is one of those impressive words that carries more weight than its somewhat obscure meaning. It’s defined as the unwillingness to believe something, or more extremely, the willful refusal to accept the truth. I assert that this state of mind is one of the biggest problems facing evangelical Christians. For the most part, born again believers aren’t heretics. They don’t deny the cardinal truths of the gospel, such as the resurrection. And they aren’t apostates, having totally turned from the faith. But they suffer from selective incredulity. They pick and choose the most comfortable parts of the gospel, and remain incredulous of the rest, especially the commands of Christ to cast out demons.

As I’ve stated many times in these blogs, the proof is objectively overwhelming. Followers of Christ can be afflicted by demons to the point of having their sentient identities periodically overwhelmed by indwelling, evil spirits. Luke’s gospel, chapter 8, speaks of the entourage that followed Christ. Mentioned are the 12 disciples and “certain women who had been healed of evil spirits” (Luke 8:2), Mary Magdalene being one of them. We don’t know how many women there were or the facts concerning their exorcisms. The text is silent as to whether they were first delivered and then followed Christ, or whether they became disciples and then were exorcised. What if they were set free after believing in Christ? To most Christians today, such a suggestion reeks of incredulity. As we teach in our International School of Exorcism, the turning of the water into wine in Cana was not necessarily Christ’s first miracle. In Mark, chapter one, it was the exorcism of the godly Jew in the Synagogue on the Sabbath.

The attitude of incredulity also afflicts the idea that we should be casting out demons today. In Matthew 10:1, Mark 6:7, and Luke 9:1-2 Jesus told the twelve disciples to cast out demons. Clearly, Jesus intentionally gave them this mission and they fulfilled this command in action (Mark 6:13). Why aren’t more doing it today? That is truly incredulous.

An encouraging word: OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD
It might be supposed that, because I constantly deal with demons, my life is a little depressing. Imagine what it’s like to regularly uncover the seamier side of life and confront despicable schemes of Satan. How do I survive emotionally and spiritually? By remembering the words of Romans 12:21, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” Acts 10:38 says that Jesus “went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil.” The best way to get one’s mind off the overwhelming sense of evil around us is to do good in the name of God.

Psychiatry and Possession (7-24-17)


Monday, July 24, 2017
Demon possessed Christians. A psychiatrist says it’s the real deal!
 

I am indebted to my good friend, Pastor Steve Strader, in Lakeland Florida, for passing on a fascinating new report entitled “Psychiatrist Admits Mental Illness is Caused by Demonic Possession.” (The full account can be found at: http://yournewswire.com/psychiatrist-admits-mental-illness-is-caused-by-demonic-possession/).

Richard Gallagher, board-certified psychiatrist and professor of clinical psychiatry at New York Medical College, admits to having personally encountered demonic possession. A priest had invited his opinion about a woman who claimed to be a “Queen” of Satan. He relates that this woman spoke multiple languages she didn’t know (a phenomenon I’ve witnessed hundreds of times) and possessed paranormal ability to reveal facts to individuals that no one knew.

Gallagher says he’s consulted on hundreds of possession cases spanning more than two decades. Some cases he observed were medical conditions; but others he acknowledges were possession by “evil spirits.” Gallagher says, “I’ve seen the real thing.” He cites instances of “trance, enormous strength, even levitation and hidden knowledge.” The doctor says, “I have seen more cases of possession than any other physician in the world.” His final word on the subject is, “For any person of science or faith, it should be impossible to turn one’s back on a tormented soul.”

Gallagher is a confessing Catholic, so that made his conclusions a little easier. My question is this: Why should it be any more difficult for an evangelical Christian to accept such things? Our ministry spans more than four decades and more than 40,000 documented cases of exorcism. Our books have numerous accounts of such instances. Our YouTube site hosts nearly 300 live encounters with demonic possession. The people you see are real. Many are known to their pastors as well as families and friends. Their torment and their freedom is documented, and they are living proof of exorcism’s efficacy.

If you have an unbelieving friend, or a skeptical pastor, point him/her to this article. Force the issue to face the facts. Get my books, such as “Dealing with Demons,” “Jezebel,” and “Curse Breaking.” Enroll in our International School of Exorcism. (To enroll CLICK HERE.) Your honest investigation may lead to the deliverance of someone you love, or even yourself. Get out of the Dark Ages of denial regarding demonic activity. Psychiatry and belief in possession are not contradictory and neither are the words “Christian” and “demonized!”


An encouraging word: LET GOD JUDGE YOU
“Judge me Lord.” That statement of David in Psalm 26:1 is an appeal to God to vindicate the psalmist’s character, who goes on the say, “I have walked in integrity.” David isn’t asking for mere self-examination. He wants Divine inspection of his character. He is asking the Lord of the Universe, who knows him better than he knows himself, to pass judgment on his life. Are you and I willing to do that? Do we really want God inspecting our motives and actions? We should, because that is the only path to a clean heart.
