EVIL SPIRITS of many sorts...
The New Age movement has a need to explain the spirits who find embodiment in many of their groups. They call these entities "walk ins". Fundamental Christianity call them "demons," and the embodiment to be "demon possession."
The New Age says that these 'walk ins' are alien life forms who enter a "willing" subject. These beings, they say, have been roaming the universe seeking embodiment. They call them "highly evolved" alien life forms... They say they are so "highly evolved" that they have shed the limitations of physical form. They also say they must be invited in...
In these New Age groups, when they enter a state of altered consciousness, as in astral projection, telepathic communication, channelling, hypnosis, mediumship, etc. it leaves a void, and these evil spirits, called 'walk ins' by them, enter a person.
We are warned in several places of the Bible that in the last days, there will be many "rulers of darkness" and other evil spirits loosed (tribulation period)... and also that many already freed evil spirits will become more and more evil, knowing that their time is short.
"The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amos did see. Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles. I have commanded My sanctified ones, I have also called My mighty ones (Heb. gibborim" = the same word used to describe Nimrod, and other half human, half angelic spirits) for mine anger, even them that rejoice in My Highness (theSeptuagint translates = the insulting of My Highness)."
"Take heed, that no man deceive you."
Satan is a deceiver, and we need to beware of many of the teachings seen on television, heard on the radio, read in novels, heard in music of the day, and filling the screens of the theaters.
"You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He (the devil) was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature; for he is a liar, and the father of lies; but because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me."
The Bible warns us of many of the items, doctrines, and heresies of the religion of the devil.
We are forbidden to take part in:
enchantments, charms, putting spells on someone, and magick arts
(Leviticus 19:26, Deuteronomy 18:10-12, Isaiah 19:3)
witchcraft, sorcery, magick, wizardry, dealing with evil spirits, interpreting omens, using mystic mutterings (animal sounds done much like speaking in tongues [satanic counterfeit] found now in 'Toronto blessing' groups)
(Deuteronomy 18:10-12, II Chronicles 33:6)
divination, soothsaying, fortune telling
(Deuteronomy 18:10-12, Acts 16:16-24)]]
necromancy, communications with demons who impersonate the dead
(Deuteronomy 18:11, I Chronicles 15:13-14)
stargazing, astrology, suggesting that stars control human affairs and character
(Isaiah 47:12-15, Jeremiah 10:2)
making a son or daughter to pass through the fire, child killing, abortion
It is vital that we, in Christian churches, stay careful to recognize heresies in the faith. The devil not only wants his religion outside the church, but he seeks to get his lies and perversions into the denominational dogmas, and into the worship services of today's assemblies.
We are in a spiritual war, against evil beings, normally unseen ones, but still real, and to be battled. We know that Jesus has won the ultimate victory, and our battle is assured of success against these beings, if we 'resist' those forces. Stay tuned to learn now to beat those evil ones.
