Faith, Believers and Demon Possession

Posted in 06 : Possessing Spirits with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 07/24/2010 by timenolonger

A fallen spirit gaining access to one of Messiah’s followers is a notion which perhaps many are unwilling to objectively explore.

This idea usually faces rejection based upon the premise that an evil spirit and the Holy Spirit cannot both occupy a believer.

I would like to point out some specifics that address why this is not the case, but first I’d like to briefly examine the word “possessed”.

“Possessed” is found 15 times in the New Testament.

Of these 15 occurrences, 13 refer to what is commonly called “demonic possession”.

11 of these 13 occurrences are translated from Strong’s Greek word 1139 “daimonizomai”.

Each of these 11 uses of diamonizomai is translated as a phrase, as opposed to being translated as a singular word.

The 11 phrases translated from ‘daimonizomai’ can be found in the following verses:

“possessed with devils”.. Matthew 4:24, 8:16, 8:28 and Mark 1:32
“possessed of the devils”.. Matthew 8:33 and Luke 8:36
“possessed with a devil”.. Matthew 9:32 and 12:22
“possessed with the devil”.. Mark 5:15, 5:16 and 5:18

Daimonizomai is a middle voice verb with one singular definition: “to be under the power of a demon”.

The other 2 verses which mention possession by fallen spirits are in the book of Acts.

“..unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed..” [8:7] and “..damsel possessed with a spirit of divination..” [16:16]

Both of these verses render “possessed” as a single word, translated from Strong’s Greek word 2192 “echo”. Echo is a common verb, found over 600 times in the NT, and means “have, hold, own, possess, be closely joined to”.

The other 2 instances of “possessed” in the NT are in Acts 4:32 and 1Cr 7:30, where we find the participle “hyparchonta” and the verb “katecho”, respectively. These 2 verses do not reference spiritual possession, but rather possession of goods or things.

At this point, all of this information may seem unnecessary, however it’s important to point out the fact that in scripture there are not myriad ambiguous hypotheticals.. but rather infinite solid truths.. and that in the New Testament when someone is noted as being “possessed” of devils, it means just that.

Perhaps when we consider this condition of being possessed by fallen spirits, we assume that those who are inhabited by unclean spirits are themselves strictly the worst of the worst of humanity.. but before resigning yourself to that assumption.. give quiet consideration to the following..

Luke 9:38-42

“And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child.”

[ a man’s son, his only child.. ]

“And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him.”

[ possessed by an evil spirit.. ]

“And I besought Thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not.”

[ which His disciples could not cast out.. ]

“And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you?”

[ because their faith was lacking. ]

“Bring thy son hither.”

“And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare [him].”

[ the demon visibly afflicts the child in front of Yahushua, His followers and the multitude.. ]

“And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father.”

[ Yahushua casts out the spirit and heals the child. ]

“Child” in the last verse is Strong’s Greek word 3816 “pais” a noun which means “a child, infants, children”

Think about that for a moment.. we just read about what is most certainly a young child (not quite the “worst of the worst” of humanity).. obviously violently possessed by a devil.. who could not be cast out, not for the child’s lack of faith in Yahushua, but for the disciples lack of faith in Him.

Do we as believers ever want to find ourselves in the same position as the disciples were when Yahushua said of a little child, ‘Bring him to Me’, because they were so lacking in faith that He could not work through them to heal a little child overtaken and hurt by the enemy..

Perhaps imagine that little child is your only son or daughter.. would you be willing to let Messiah work through you to cast the enemy out of your little one.. even if it took fasting and prayer.. or would you let your only child suffer needlessly because you could not accept the fact that a child could be possessed by a devil..

“And they brought unto Him also infants, that He would touch them: but when [His] disciples saw [it], they rebuked them.

But Jesus called them [unto Him], and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”

[Luke 18:15,16]

Would any believer argue the fact that children are protected by the One who created them.. we just saw how a child could be possessed by a demon, then delivered by Messiah.. and we know that if we are not at least like little children then we have a shallow grasp on humility, not to mention the Kingdom.

“At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.”

[Matthew 18:1-5]

Often it is said that believers can become vulnerable to “demonic oppression”, but are impervious to “demonic possession”.. though that idea really falls short considering the account of the possessed child in Luke 9 (and Matthew 17).. perhaps more often it is said that believers cannot become vulnerable to demonic possession because the Holy Spirit cannot reside within the same believer in which an unholy spirit resides.

The idea that “good and bad” or “light and darkness” cannot both be present at the same time is not found in the bible.. ‘light and darkness’ do not agree with one another, but they do co-exist within the same individual.. if this were not the case, then all believers would be perfect and without sin.. sin is evil, and yet we as believers will sin at times, even though the Holy Spirit indwells.

“..if thine right eye offend thee, pluck it out..”

[Mat 5:29, 18:19, Mar 9:47]

We are called to continually separate ourselves from sin.. first and foremost the sin that originates in our own flesh, which is not yet redeemed, and is still carrying a weak human sin nature

“..the spirit [is] indeed willing, but the flesh is weak..”

[Mat 26:41]

When we accept that we are hopeless sinners.. then turn and accept Yahushua as our savior.. He forgives us and washes away those sins.. from then on, we are told, we will still sin.. but that we should repent of our sins, instead of willfully remaining in them. Unrepentant willing sin can become a demonic stronghold in a believer.

This is not put forth to frighten (we are called to fear only the Almighty), but to bring to light the truth of our condition as believers in this fallen world.. and also to remind, that as believers we have the ability through the Holy Spirit to be delivered by the authority of Yahushua our savior.

We are in a physically unredeemed state though, in a spiritually wicked world of which we desire no part.. but all believers are in different phases and stages in their walk of faith.

Often new believers who have been delivered out of occult practices will struggle especially hard with the reappearance in their lives of former sins.. the enemy never wants to let go of someone it once had hold of, and will fight to regain a foothold in the life of a new believer.. during this time it can be touch-and-go for some as they claw to cling to the cross of salvation while their former masters work tirelessly to recapture their souls.

Did any of us here wake up perfect the day after accepting Messiah..

At this time I would like to offer up the reminder that as those born again in Messiah, we are called to be compassionate teachers of the gospel, loving of each other, and workers together in furthering the Kingdom of our Master.. none of which can be best accomplished by turning a blind eye to the truth in His scripture.

Consider the only son of the man who cried out to Yahushua for help.. the lack of faith of the disciples in that situation.. and what you would do if you were in their shoes.

“Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.”

“He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through Thy name.

And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

[Luke 10:16-20]

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

[Eph 6:10-13]

Deliverance From Spiritual Possessors

Posted in 06 : Possessing Spirits with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 07/18/2010 by timenolonger

Deliverance from possessing spirits is a subject which seems to have been treated by the majority of churches in one of two detrimental ways.

The most common treatment of the subject of spiritual invasion in the Christian community is to avoid it entirely.

A host of excuses are offered up as justification for this when it is questioned such as… giving attention to such a subject is empowering to the enemy in some manner… giving Satan attention when it should be focused on YHWH.

Another justification is to say that such incidents are so rare as to not call for any serious concern, or that it simply Never happens in this modern age.

There’s surely no biblical foundation for the last two of these excuses for avoidance of the issue of possession.

Not only is there a pointed lack of scriptural support for the idea of possession being a phenomenon which faded into obscurity, but the end times are defined in terms of demonic and fallen angelic activity on earth.

The anti (or pseudo) messiah would naturally, himself, be expected to be possessed specifically by Satan.

I don’t think we would realistically examine the state of the world today and come to the conclusion that it seems like a world Less influenced by evil entities than it was in times past.

As for giving the enemy attention or empowering him thereby, I simply fail to understand in what way we advance the agenda of the enemy by becoming active in the freeing of his prisoners in the name of our Savior.

By what stretch of the imagination do we glorify Satan if saints are equip with the weapons of spiritual warfare in order to combat his tyranny over our fellow brethren?

It would seem this argument is a born out of a similar origin as the accusation itself would imply. A hesitation derived out of an ingrained fear of the enemy… a “leave the Devil alone and he’ll leave you alone” mentality.

Sadly there have been, and are untold numbers of, people who have found themselves in a situation of spiritual harassment or control from which they can neither extract themselves, nor find anyone to take them seriously enough to offer their help.

These individuals often find themselves taken advantage of by the predatory institution of psychiatry… forced to medicate themselves or to be caged like animals.

Their friends and family are likely to not understand the situation, and it is considered an indication of insanity in itself, or at least of backward ignorance if the term “demonic possession” is brought up.

Spiritual invasion and possession begin in sin… at times it is a sin which has not been committed by the victim themselves… but a sin which an ancestor gave themselves or their family over to.

Spirits hold human beings captive by way of legality, they are not empowered to simply choose anyone they wish as their physical host, but require that some “breach” has been made by way of transgression against YHWH.

As a piece of real estate… a “deed” is passed over to a spirit who has succeeded in obtaining that legal authority over a human body, and as children are under the spiritual ownership of parents… that child’s “deed” automatically belongs to the one in the highest spiritual position of ownership…the one “holding the deed” to the parent.

This should come as a warning to those who meddle in a life of consistent sin… not only is there the danger of coming under the control of evil entities… but the danger of passing those attachments on to later generations.

Regardless of whether the reason for the possession of an individual is personal sin, or generational (and those generationally possessed often carry on the same sorts of sins their ancestors did)… the attitude and approach of the believer to victims of spiritual harassment ought to always be compassion, not judgment.

This is not to say that we do not have an obligation to insist that a victim come clean of sin before deliverance takes place… but that we must keep always in mind that, but for Grace, we would be in no better circumstances.

Likewise, we should be ready to take seriously what a victim tells us is happening to them… I would rather needlessly go through the motions of deliverance, than turn my back on a person who genuinely needed help out of some prideful need to not be a “sucker”.

As mentioned earlier, there are two approaches to spiritual invasion into which many churches fall, that are detrimental to a correct way to deal with the problem.

Some avoid it… and others Revel in it.

What is meant by “reveling” in it, is that these groups tend to throw themselves into deliverance in a very ritualistic, sensational way which leaves one with the impression that the service being done for the victim is second to an “experience” for the one doing the deliverance (or for an audience).

The idea that casting a spirit out of a human being ought to come with a scripted liturgy of things to say to the spirit, a long list of inquiries which to ask, a great deal of yelling, screaming, head spinning melodrama… or that the event must be presided over by a specialized exorcist such as a priest… is all quite Hollywood and not biblical.

A sincere believer in Yahushua who is mature in their faith and a victim willing to turn to their Savior and repent is all that is necessary for the success of a deliverance.

Although there is certainly a potential for strange things to happen when dealing with a spirit being… generally you will not find that the event is packed with “supernatural fireworks”.

Deliverance should begin in pinpointing the transgression which gave legality for the possession to occur.

This should be followed by an assurance from the victim of willingness to change their life and give it wholly to Messiah… insincerity in this can result in worse outcomes than simple failure to cast the spirit out, this can eventually lead to a state of possession which is much worse, and the victim needs to be warned of this.

After this assurance should come an official, verbal renunciation by the victim, of all sins and ties which bind them to the spirit…

this is a prayer of confession before YHWH, and is ended in the name of Yahushua, by whom comes deliverance.

It is not a necessity to learn the name, the variety, the function or the number of spirits from the entity itself, as long as the lack of these points of information are not a hindrance to completing the deliverance.

The victim himself can more than likely produce an answer to what the spirit’s function is by knowing what area of their life is affected by it.

In a case where it is suspected that there are many spirits, and it is necessary to know if all of those spirits fall under one legal authority, interrogation of the entity might be useful, but should be pursued with cautious.

The same applies to the function of the spirit if the right of authority comes generationally and the root is unknown by the victim.

Manifestation of the invading spirit most often occurs at the point when the victim begins to confess and renounce.

At this point, the spirit realizes that his “castle” is about to be under siege, and he must commence some sort of defense in order to maintain his position.

This outburst often consists of an adamant and angry insistence of ownership of the victim… “he/ she belongs to me!” This outburst is mostly designed to derail the deliverance and stop the victim from completing the prayer of renunciation.

It is not yet time to deal with the entity… and the possessing spirit needs to be instructed to regress, and to allow the victim to resurface.

All instructions given to the spirit should be done in the name of Yahushua… He is the one delivering, not the human being who is speaking the words – and it is of great importance that this is never forgotten.

Commands by the individual conducting the process in their own authority (I command you to…etc) will most likely be met with failure.

This process might be the most time consuming… and there is a chance, particularly with multiple spirits, that the interruptions will occur more than once… but once the victim has completed the renunciation, the rest should not be terribly involved.

At this point it is a matter of instructing the spirit or spirits to leave in the authority of Yahushua.

This might be met with resistance… shows of hostility and threats, but the appropriate response is simply calm and firm insistence on the superiority of Yahushua’s power.

There is no need… absolutely none… for yelling and finger-shaking in the spirit’s face, or for childish insults.

Believers who feel it’s their right or duty to behave this way in the presence of an evil entity are behaving ignorantly and foolishly, and possibly endangering themselves and the victim.

We are never given authority to revile, demean or display hatred toward any enemy… human or otherwise, and to do so only puts a believer squarely in the camp of the enemy’s ways.

“They are presumptuous, self-willed.

They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries.

Whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Master”.

– 2 Peter: 10,11

“Likewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignitaries.

Yet Miyka’el the high messenger, in contending with the devil when he disputed about the body of Mosheh, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, “Yahuwah rebuke you!”

But these speak evil of whatever they do not know, and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves”.

– Jude 8-10

The power of our Savior is sufficient to cast out every unclean spirit… He will never need our sensational shows of grand posturing to do so.

Scripture states that our attitude toward deliverance should not even include any rejoicing that spirits are subject to us… but that our whole rejoicing ought to be the knowledge that we are bought by Him with a price, not because we are better than the lost, or even better than a fallen spirit… but because of His mercy.

There is hope for the captives… that is assured by the fact that He came to set them free, and there is nothing He has come to do that will not be done.

No matter the severity of sin or the length of time which a victim has been under the control of a malicious spirit… there is hope in Yahushua for freedom and a real life set loose from the bonds of Satan.

Rephaim : The Reincarnate Possessors

Posted in 06 : Possessing Spirits with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 06/08/2010 by timenolonger

The subject of reincarnation is rarely delved into by followers of Yahushua past the point of delegating it to a category of false occult or pagan belief. While there is no sound biblical evidence for the occurrence of reincarnation of the human spirit (though some may disagree)… there is some interesting, if rarely discussed, explanations in scripture for the prevalence of a belief in reincarnation throughout pagan cultures from the earliest to the most recent.

There is a mistake to be made in a complete, willful ignoring of what pagan belief systems held as true, in that these records cannot be brushed off as complete fabrications of imagination born in ignorant and godless minds.

At one point in the far past, all humanity had one common record of events from which derived a variety of partial truths or biased views of true events perverted thus by fallen spirits during a lost time, when no man personally recalled the beginning and no man had yet been given the testimony of the Creator.

When so much has been craftily translated into and out of the original languages which the testimony of His Truth was given… we have arrived in a time when it is simply not enough to read a KJV (or other English version of scripture) and come to the conclusion that all that is recorded therein is precisely what was written.

With fairly little effort, any person can use a concordance of original languages to better gain a picture of what has been given to men to know… before the same fallen powers which have constructed half truths all along, came in to undermine His message.

Buddhist Ancestor WorshipWhat can be gained from a mature study of pagan beliefs are the mile markers of history that, though defaced, can be used to lead one to seek a scriptural answer to the truth of how those subjects really entered upon the world scene.

In this day we hear quite a bit from the New Age community on “ascended masters”. This concept is a very old one but the term and it’s present popularity began with Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, founder of Theosophy and the Theosophical Society.

The basic idea of this belief is that these ascended masters have lived successive lives in multiple incarnations on the earth, gaining knowledge as they proceed to a point of great enlightenment at which time they are considered masters and teachers of humanity.

It is further believed in certain occult circles that at the point at which a reincarnated soul reaches this status they are able to retain and recall the memories of their various past lives.

The “Illumined” Luciferian or Illuminati concept of a Moon Child ties in closely with the concept of ascended mastery. A Moon Child ritual is a very dark and high level occult ritual which requires blood sacrifice, the goal of which is to call into a prenatal infant, a demonic entity which will not just possess, but displace the original spirit, and live out a mortal life in the body.

It is necessary to clarify that the use of the term “demonic” here is to refer to a nephil spirit, a human/angel hybrid who has died and whose spirit is free-roaming on the earth. 1 Enoch gives some information on spirits of this kind:

“The spirits of the giants shall be like clouds, which shall oppress, corrupt, (cause to) fall, contend, and bruise upon the earth. They shall cause lamentation. No food shall they eat; and they shall be thirsty (for a habitat); they shall be concealed (invisible), and those spirits shall rise up against the sons of men (torment), and against women; for they come forth (from them) during the days of slaughter and destruction (the flood or deluge). And as to the death of the giants, wheresoever their spirits depart from their bodies, let their flesh, that which is perishable, be without judgment. Thus, they shall perish, until the day of the great consummation of the great world. ”
– 1 Enoch 15

Aleister Crowley, infamous Satanist and Freemason, wrote on the Moon Child stating that the ritual ensured the “perfect” spirit for the body, likening spirits who await their reincarnation to butterflies and in his book entitled Moonchild, the villa where the ritual was performed to create Moon Children was named The Butter-fly-net.

The CIA projects Monarch and MKultra created Moonchildren and made the connection between bloodline and the spirits which were obtained to inhabit the bodies.

As with various ancients traditions on reincarnation, the spirit which reincarnates into the prescribed body must do so in a body which belongs to the same hereditary line… hence Moonchildren were normally made of children who belonged to one of the “blue-blood” families.

A very curious creature is named in Old Testament scripture which has gone by the wayside to be identified as simply one more tribe of heathens with which Israel had disagreements.

Modern scholars of Old Testament scripture are much perturbed by the definition and etymology of the name of this people called the Rephaim. It would seem, perhaps at first glance of a few uses of the name in a KJV bible, that they are, indeed, just a tribe of people.

Genesis 14:5 “And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim”

Genesis 15:18-20 “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,”

It occurs after these references though, no less than 17 times, that Rephaim or Rapha is translated “giant/s”… here are a few examples:

2 Samuel 21:18 “And it came to pass after this, that there was again a battle with the Philistines at Gob: then Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Saph, which was of the sons of the giant.”

1 Chronicles 20:4 “And it came to pass after this, that there arose war at Gezer with the Philistines; at which time Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Sippai, that was of the children of the giant: and they were subdued.”

Deuteronomy 2:11 ” Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emims.”

Deuteronomy 2:20 “(That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;”

Joshua 17:15 “And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee.”

Perhaps most strange of all is that this word is also translated as “dead” on several occasions. Instances where Rephaim/Rapha are translated as “dead” are listed below:

Job 26:5 “Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.”

Psalms 88:10 “Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah. ”

Proverbs 2:18 “For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.”

Proverbs 9:18 “But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.”

Proverbs 21:16 “The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.”

The Hebrew definitions of Rephaim, it’s root and offshoots are:

rapha/ raphah – to mend, cure or thoroughly make whole…
or as a noun (rapha): a ghost, the dead…
or as a noun (raphah) something invigorating, a giant
or as an adjective (raphah): feeble, idle, still
Rephuw: cured
Rephach: sustain

It becomes incredibly confusing to attempt to reconcile each of these definitions to one root, and especially confusing to understand how each of these ideas should be applicable to one group of ancient people, incorporating both the ideas of something dead: a ghost, something feeble or ethereal, with something which seems opposite of that: the concept of healing and revitalizing – while the definition of “giant” is thrown in besides.

Taking all this into consideration with some clues that have come down from the culture itself though, begins to fit the pieces of the puzzle together.

Scriptural text is not the only historical mention of Rephaim… these people were also discussed by Phoenicians and Ras Shamra Ugaritic texts. A warning against raiding a Sidonian king’s tomb reads “May there be no resting-place for you with the Rephaim”.

Phoenicians clearly understood rephaim as being spirits which inhabited the netherworld. Ugaritic texts explains them as being divine in nature though not precisely “gods”. They are also described as a warlike people.

It was customary that they prayed to the rephaim, brought food offerings and flowers in hopes of benefiting their dead loved ones, a practice which is identical with ancestor worship, and we can safely conclude that is what it was. (Pictured below, a Korean Jesa Altar)

Korean Jesa AltarThe Rephaim, in the understanding of those cultures, were partially divine, ancestral spirits. It becomes then, crystal clear, why YHWH made a point of letting it be known to His people that He is an Elohim of the living and not of the dead.

The hybrid offspring of rebel angels and mortal women were born to physical bodies, having earthly mothers, but the spirits of these creatures, once their bodies perished, were not like the human spirit – which, once deceased, proceeded to a “holding place” (whether a restful one or a tormenting one). Neither were their spirits beholden to the natural process of mortal life followed by a judgment.

In Hebrews 9:27 it is recorded for mankind:

“And as it is appointed for men to die once but after this the judgment,”

…but for nephil spirits: “… And as to the death of the giants, wheresoever their spirits depart from their bodies, let their flesh, that which is perishable, be without judgment.” – 1 Enoch 16:1

Their judgement awaits the great judgment at the end of all ages, until then… they roam the earth, and it is possible for them to take up incarnation over and over, in physical bodies which descend from their own hereditary line.

Understanding this, it then becomes clear why a word or words in Hebrew describing one group of people should encapsulate the ideas: giant, (a product of angelic and human procreation) ghosts, (disembodied spirits who have lived perishable, flesh lives) and healing or revitalization (an ability to reincarnate).

The Rephaim, then, are those particular nephil spirits who return successively to live multiple mortal lives, becoming the highly esteemed “Ascended Masters” of the New Age movement.

It is not hard to imagine what great influence embodied ancient spirits like these can have on modern society as a whole and what important part they can play in helping to achieve a NWO agenda… it is also not difficult to figure out why YHWH warned His people to never have anything to do with communication with the dead.

Although it is flatly assumed by many that no nephil can be saved, I would have to utterly disagree just by the mere fact that at this point in history there is very likely no pure human left on earth.

It is statistically probable that since the time of Yahushua (the last point in time a pure human lineage would have been entirely necessary) that due to the greater ability to travel about the world in hours rather than months… the whole world has become a melting pot of lineages.

If no person whose bloodline was adulterated with fallen angelic bloodlines was able to be redeemed, we might well have a whole world of unsalvageable souls.

This is not to say that I believe that every person who has any trace of non-human blood is capable of future incarnations by any means, rather that is the result of being a high percentage of angelic ancestry (50/50 or 75/25 where the lineage comes from the paternal grandfather).

I would also venture to add that if any half-angelic nephil were to repent during the course of a mortal life, they would possibly no longer continue to re-enter further physical lives (as the loss of memory from one physical life to the next might negate the decision to repent).

Would this be some “unfair” advantage to nephilim? No… I don’t think so… in a creature who was so thoroughly predisposed to evil at their first conception and must undergo (more or less) the entire learning process over and over again… it would remain much more difficult for one of these to come to a knowledge and acceptance of the truth, having an ever present influence of fallen spirits, if anything, the chances of repentance would decrease with each reincarnation.

Plan to Put the Whole World in a Demonic Trance

Posted in 06 : Possessing Spirits with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/05/2010 by timenolonger

The last thing people in this country in general might want to believe, is that their own government and its agencies have deep roots in the occult, or that they have actively made their own citizens unwitting victims of their occult practices.

The unfortunate case of the matter, though, is that this is true. It’s not a subject of highly speculative guesses or overactive imagination… or flat out paranoia, it is a matter of public record, if the public cares to know.

Trauma based mind control is a very ancient, pagan practice. It is described in texts dating far back into antiquity from renown civilizations such as Egypt and Babylon.

By using various means of torture, drugging and hypnosis, victims’ psyche’s were broken and twisted to allow the compartmentalization of their minds to take place in such a way that would make them the ideal mind controlled slave.

The shattered soul also became an easy vessel of demonic possession, and thus ensuring that the broken mind of the victim would always remain so, under the command of the spirits which took up housing in them.

In pre-World War II Germany, the emphasis on eugenics and mind control made a strong come-back. The psychiatric branch of the eugenics field through the Tavistock Institute began to promote social engineering, euthanasia, and sterilization of certain “genetically unfit” groups of people.

It should be remembered that the basis which forms an ideology that says there is a superior and an inferior populace – that there should be a control mechanism on who can have children and who should not – comes from family lines who regard themselves as having the “blood of the gods”.

It is the ages old creed of the “divine right to rule” of the nephilim.

Josef Mengele was perhaps one of the most notorious of Nazi eugenicists, having performed horrific experiments on countless children to further the fields of genetic engineering and behavior modification.

He was known to attempt to change the eye color of his subjects by placing drops of painful, caustic chemicals into their eyes, sometimes resulting in blindness, but never resulting in the blue eye color he was attempting to produce.

He was also known for a demented mind control technique called “twinning”. In this technique, two non-related children were connected emotionally in an intense and reinforced bond, and then one of the two children would be forced to murder the other or die themselves.

This would result in such immense psychological trauma that the mind of the child would literally split, one part disassociating from the main, conscious core to avert madness or death.

It could hardly be imagined by most citizens of this country, that the US, who apparently fought against the tyranny and inhumanity of Nazi Germany, should then turn around after this conflict and recruit the very scientists who were at the core of the evil taking place there.

Sadly… the nature of history and the reasons that wars have been fought are scarcely understood by the general public.

The US, indeed, imported approximately 1,600 scientists and family members of the Nazi regime into the states up until the 70’s.

This was known as Project Paperclip… and from this began America’s downward spiral into the dark heart of occult mind control.

MK-ULTRA was the vile offspring of Hitler’s regime, and it was born on American soil. Primarily an operation under CIA control, MK-ULTRA was a project to delve deep into the creation of perfectly mind-controlled slaves on an individual basis, as well as the public at large.

The CIA often sought out the “elite bloodlines” for children to use in these experiments. The reason for this was due to a phenomenon which received it’s own project heading, The Monarch Project.

The Monarch Project had as it’s premise, the theory that people, much like animals who travel a migratory route from generation to generation, had the memory of their ancestors imprinted on their DNA.

A child belonging to a long history of “blue-bloods” would theoretically have a multitude of innate talents for occult practices, and be the best candidates for trauma-based “splitting”.

MPD (Multiple Personality Disorder) was the main goal of MK-ULTRA. By beginning early in the life of a child… even prenatal, the perpetrators would physically, mentally and emotionally abuse and confuse their victim to past the breaking point.

Their methods included drugs, electroshock therapy, being caged or buried alive for hours or even days, forced witnessing of brutality and murder, satanic ritual abuse and sexual molestation.

As the mind split with the trauma, which was carefully interwoven with various symbolic stimuli, such as certain keywords, numbers, colors, letters, etc… a new fraction of the whole mind manifested as a separate and independent personality who had its own memory, its own function and its own agenda.

Each split part could then be programmed by the “handlers” to come to the surface in response to “cues” and “triggers” which had been introduced in the splitting process. (the aforementioned colors, numbers, letters, etc.)

The victims of these experiments could be literally turned into human computers, made to run “programs”, which were their various alter personalities, at the whim of their handlers.

The programs would execute their function just as they had been wired to do, and depart, leaving the core personality unaware of what the alter had performed.

So complex could a system of a “Multiples” be that there could potentially be hundreds of different alters, all created to perform their own, compartmentalized function within the whole.

The system would often be designed by the handlers to have an internal geography for the victim. That is, the various alters would see their internal world in their mind’s eyes as if it was a house or a city, or a pyramid, or some other manner of societal/ building hierarchy.

Each alter would reside in a specific room or house and have access to specific others, or to no others at all… the handlers would then implant demonic entities to control “gateways” between the sectioned-off geography of the internal landscape, and to keep the alters in their specified areas and tasks.

Often the head authority in the MPD system was the “unknown controller” or the most powerful demonic entity who had a position of overseeing the entire structure while never making itself known to the rest of the system.

It is said that the MK-ULTRA experiments were halted in the early 70’s, however, by taking a look at a little book called “Brave New World”… we can maybe earnestly question the authenticity of that claim.

Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World, had a great deal of connectedness to the Tavistock Institute.

This book was designed to be a prediction of the realization of the New World Order and it portrayed a utopian society that emerged from a devastating world war.

A reality in which everyone lived in a strange, hypnotized peace… not a peace born of freedom, but one born of addiction to “sex, drugs and rock and roll”.

Does the idea of a society that is drunken past caring on sexuality, mind altering substances and hypnotic music sound familiar? It sounds like right now.

I, personally, have no doubt that the continuation of MK-Ultra experiments have persisted past the 70’s… only now the objective is broadened.

It is not the individual “Manchurian candidate” they have focused on, but the whole of society.

Utilizing the “soft-core” tactics of mind control – not to the goal of producing people with full blown MPD – but training the average mind by the same uses of symbolic triggers and cues, through entertainment and media, to disassociate into a trance wherein the mind readily accepts the insidious and subtle brainwashing it is exposed to.

I think it is also not too far of a stretch to say that they are able, by the proliferation of trance-inducing techniques delivered through television, music and drugs, (both legal and illegal) to warp a person’s will so as to allow possession by demonic entities.

Believers, it would be wise to keep alert to what you allow your children to watch and what video games you allow them to play and to which music you allow them to listen.

In fact, it would be wise if even as adults, believers take note of what sort of things they allow to saturate their environment.

Don’t believe for a moment that the danger is only contained in violent movies and raunchy music… everything on TV is designed to subliminally subvert the will, including the evening news.

It should come as no surprise to us that the enemy has a suffocating hold on the world and that we have been warned to not be part of it for a reason.

The Dragon : Satan The Serpent

Posted in 03 : The Dragon with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 04/22/2010 by timenolonger

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field that Yahuwah ‘Elohiym had made
– Genesis 3:1

The word “serpent”, mentioned here, is translated from the word nachash. This word can mean in the sense of a verb: to whisper, prognosticate or enchant. As a noun it can mean an incantation, an enchantment or a snake.

It is of interest and importance to also note that the same root is used to mean “copper” : nechuwshah and the Chaldean word for “copper” (nechash) is virtually identical to the word which is used for “serpent” in Genesis 3:1.

Was an actual snake involved in the temptation of Eve?

I have encountered, recently, quite a bit of material which supposes that there was no involvement of any reptile in the events of Genesis 3. This view is often closely associated with the idea that the method of temptation also did not involve a literal tree nor any literal fruit.

It is noted in this view that the definition of the word “nachash” only associates serpents with the meaning by way of attributing the primary definition to its character, such as hissing and a sneaky, crafty nature.

Without going off topic and delving into the literal or non-literal meaning of trees and fruit, the use of the word nachash can be found throughout scripture in reference to instances where anything But a literal snake would be quite odd.

An example would be Exodus 4:3 when Moses cast a rod upon the ground and it became a serpent. YHWH commands him to then put forth his hand and take the serpent by its tail. It’s a logical conclusion, then, that the word nachash is, at least at times, used to mean an actual, physical reptile.

Another source to examine for evidence of the presence of an actual serpent in the garden of Eden is what history and archeology have to say about serpents throughout a wide array of cultures.

Serpents, are perhaps, the most heavily dealt with beasts in religious and mythological records. They are seen as embodiments of evil, wisdom, luck, power, knowledge and enchantment. Depicted in ancient art countless numbers of times, they are often shown as an evil to be defeated or feared.. as if mankind had learned to associate their misfortune in life with this beast.

Other depictions actually portray a serpent with a tree and human beings nearby… a scene very reminiscent of the description of events in Genesis 3.

Some even depict serpents as having legs. Recall the curse put on the serpent – “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle and more than every beast of the field. You shall go on your belly and you shall eat dust all the days of your life.” Genesis 3:14

So then if we have the involvement of a real beast… how did this beast come to be used as Satan’s tool and why a serpent rather than some other animal or why did Satan himself not appear instead of using a creature as his medium?

First we can look at what is unique about the serpent as opposed to other animals. “Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field…”

You might look at a modern snake crawling through your own garden and not associate it with a great degree of intelligence, and such is the case now with this animal who has been debased from its original created form both in appearance and brain power, but not only did the serpent once have a very different form, it also had great intellect.

Though most might be accustomed to considering humans the only earthly creatures with sentient intelligence and feel that this is directly connected to mankind being created in YHWH’s image… there is not an actual parallel between human monopoly on intelligence and their unique design in His image.

Humans are designed in His image in the sense that they literally resemble the form of their Maker, both in appearance and in having an imperishable and individual spirit. The serpent was not made in the image of YHWH but it was created with great intelligence and even a sentient will that could yield to Satan.

This brings us to another point about why the serpent as opposed to some other animal. YHWH created man in His image, but is man the only creature who had a “model” they were created to resemble?

Consider a particular classification of angelic being called a Seraph. Seraphim are mentioned in the English translation of the Bible in Isaiah: “Above it stood seraphim, each one had six wings, with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.” Isaiah 6:2.

The word in Hebrew – saraph means a fiery, burning creature identified with a serpent and interestingly… copper. (refer back to the words nachash and nechuwshah). The word saraph occurs also in Numbers 21:8 and is translated “fiery serpent” and again in Isaiah 14 and 30 also translated a “fiery serpent”.

In Revelation, Satan is referred to as “that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan” Revelation 12:9. If the animal known as a serpent was modeled or “made in the image” of the class of angelic beings to which Satan himself belongs, it is quite logical that he chose this beast as the most suitable physical housing for himself.

Why didn’t Satan himself manifest physically to Eve? Because he couldn’t. Satan had no physical presence and as a rebellious spirit outside of YHWH’s will, he had no authority to breach the divide between the spiritual and physical realms without the explicit consent to inhabit a native, physical resident of earth.

Satan: The Originator of Sin

Satan is most often connected to the individual called “Lucifer” spoken of in Isaiah 14… i do not agree that these are the same individuals, but that subject is for a different discussion.

The bible does, however, provide an understanding of his goals, his motives and when he initiated his rebellion. He is described in Job as an opponent of both the Creator and those who serve Him… attempting to lay accusation against YHWH’s servants in order to destroy them.

He behaves like a malicious prosecuting attorney, he can’t supersede his Creator’s law so instead he attempts to work it to his ends… knowing that the wages of sin are death, he seeks to demand the full penalty of breaking the law when a person stumbles… and is not above tempting you to stumble so he can. (Thank Yahushua for Mercy!)

In Revelation are these verses about him :

“And war broke out in the heaven. Miyka’el and his angels fought with the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought but they did not prevail nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.
So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Diablos and Satan, who deceives the whole world. He was cast to the earth and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in the sky, “At this moment salvation and strength and the kingdom of our ‘Eloah and the power of His Anointed have come, for the accuser of our brothers who accused them before our ‘Eloah day and night, has been cast down. ” Revelation 12:7-10

This future event shows some of Satan’s goals… he has a desire to literally overthrow YHWH, His law and His will to the (insane) point that he will even storm the “gates of heaven” and engage His faithful angels in battle.

Some will see this as a description of a past event, however it is clear by looking throughout scripture that until this point, he brings before YHWH accusation against believers and is denoted as the “prince of the power of the air”… still having access to heavenly realms.

Satan was the original sinner… having been created (as were all creatures) good, he conceived the antithesis of creation… destruction, in that he willfully began to oppose the sovereign will of YHWH which by its very nature upholds all creation… the natural consequence of that opposition is destruction… the wages of sin were always death.

In his dissent, he successfully lured legions of other angelic beings into his vision of a universe without YHWH. This event occurred before mankind existed, as obviously he was already in a sinful state when he tempted Eve.

This is the rebellion most believers are familiar with, and it was the one which would set in course all other instances of willful sin for all of time… but it might not be as well known that it wasn’t the last angelic rebellion. That’s another discussion.

Possessing Spirits : Opportunistic Spiritual Invaders

Posted in 06 : Possessing Spirits with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 04/21/2010 by timenolonger

Putting aside all Hollywood education on the matter of possession… this is a serious and a real phenomenon which has not only persisted in the modern age but has increased incrementally as the last days have drawn nearer.

Fallen spirits are literally everywhere… they control geo-political domains, areas of societal influence, specific sin, specific family lines and individuals.

We are accustomed to hearing a simplistic definition of what a spirit is who can possess human beings… most frequently the answer given is that they are fallen angels, but this only defines one type of spirit that has the ability to take over a host body.

Types of Possessing Spirits

Fallen angelic – this is the most well known unclean spirit which can enter a host. these are by far the most powerful though they range in power according to their class and rank. There are several types of beings which are all familiarly called “angels” in modern English although the term technically refers to only one class. Fallen angles act as the generals of the Satanic army with lesser types of spirits working in positions under them.

Nephil- The departed spirits of Nephilim are what are in all technical correctness, called demons. These are the spirits of angelic/human hybrids who have died and are not bound by the normal human laws of where a normal human spirit should reside after departing the body. They have a craving to return to a bodily existence and this drives their motivation to attempt to possess more so than even a loyalty to the cause of their master to destroy the lives of living human beings.

Daeva Chimera – Another hybrid creature who is a combination of beast and angel… human/beast chimeras do not have spirits which continue to roam earth, but those who were partially angelic have a spirit which can. These normally function just as nephil demons do but generally occupy a lower rank.

Siren – These are the only wholly human spirits in origin which are able to roam the earth after their deaths. They were the human wives of fallen angels and just as a human husband and wife become one flesh, a human woman who has an angelic marital partner takes on some of the spiritual attributes of her husband.

Sirens were cursed to roam the earth and have been known mostly to draw living men to destruction through lust. They are highly connected to water and operate through it… haunting bodies of water or indwelling trees that draw up waters where sirens dwell, from which came legends of creatures like nyads and dryads (water and tree spirits).

All of these spirits share one common agenda… and that is evil. Their opportunity to enter comes through sin… whether it is national sin, familial sin or personal sin. Where they enter into the lives of human beings, they wreak havoc and destruction on a world-wide scale all the way down to a single body and spirit.

They also share one common weakness for which they have no defense… they are utterly subject to the will and authority of Yahushua… always.

The victim of possession usually has no clue they are possessed until the situation peaks at a point of control or contention which makes the spirit brazen enough to act up physically in the body in ways which are obviously not consistent with the person themselves, or which put the person’s will in a “blacked out” state where they are unconscious and the time lost begins to become apparent.

A spirit within a host will, unless making a conscious effort to be unnoticed, behave in a way consistent with the spirit’s own personality… their own manner of expression, voice, body language, personal knowledge and degree of strength.

Possession as a result of personal sin often begins in temptation, evil spirits goad temptation in people and when the goading succeeds the temptation becomes action… now the power of influence for the spirit has opened up and they can direct more pressure on the person’s psyche to continue in the sin. As the sin continues, the natural protection of the barrier which would stop invading spirits from connecting into the physical faculties of the human become weakened, and holes open up in the barrier which then allows the spirit to enter.

The spirit will at first have a weak hold on the physical connection… occupying a place in the “background” or the subconscious mind. The hold gradually strengthens until at the worst possible point in possession… the possessor does not retire from control of the body and entirely takes over the life of the person… usually resulting in destruction of the life either literally and physically or in essence and spirit.

Familial spirits have a grounded right in genetics… that is through occult ancestry, nephil bloodlines or grievous sin of ancestors, a family line is dedicated spiritually to a certain spirit or group of them. This runs a course in four generations or so and then the end generation is normally encouraged, either by tradition or by the spirit itself, to rededicate the line.

These take a less aggressively destructive approach to their hosts and tend to be more inconspicuous as their goals are geared toward using the family members under their control as agents within the community, though their presence is no less destructive to the spiritual life of the person or their mental and emotional well being.

The remedy for any manner of spirit possession is deliverance in the name of Yahushua. This does not involve a lot of screaming or ritual acts or special prescribed prayers and chanting.

This involves the fervent prayer of two or three genuine believers and a victim who is wholly willing to renounce the grounds on which the spirit entered and submit their whole life to Yahushua.

Deliverance is that simple, though one turning his back on a sin which has been a staple of his life can also be less easy for that person than it should seem to an outsider.

It comes down to a life changing decision to be cleansed or to remain in a situation of slow degradation which can lead ultimately to death or worse.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the celestial realms. -Ephesians 6:12
