Biblical Fact VS Doctrines Of Demons
Do NOT question the Bible, not any of it ! Why ? Because if 1% of it is untrue to you, then the other 99% is not fact. The Bible is the word of God. It tells us how we should live our daily lives, how to avoid hell, everything. The Bible was written by men inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Did you know that the Bible is the ONLY book of prophecy that has been, and always will be 100% correct ? Yes
In this day and age of sin, one end-time prophecy that is rapidly gaining a foot-hold is: APOSTASY (Falling away from the truth - Going against what the bible says is right): The Bible says, 'In the later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons'. What does it mean 'doctrines of demons', plainly it means lies. As the Bible says many times the nature of demons is to lie and deceive, we are supposed to read the Bible, believe and follow what it says, and it alone. Not what some great scholar, new age leader, great new author, or some ancient scroll or lost book says.
What are some of the doctrines of demons (lies) being said and believed right now ?
1. Jesus is NOT the only way to God or Heaven
This is one of the most horrible new-age doctrines of demons 'lie' spreading around ! Why ? Because unless you trust and accept Jesus Christ, and him only, as your saviour, YOU WILL NOT ENTER HEAVEN !
There is NO other way to God or Heaven ! There are 3 verses that clearly tell us the salvation can only come from Jesus Christ:
1 Corinthians 2:14 (Jesus himself says he is the ONLY Way !) Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
And in Acts 4:12 - Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. Again, in 1 Timothy 2:5 - For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
2. Same-sex relationships are ok
This is clearly wrong ! Folks are now being accused of being a hater or against the times if they say homosexual or same sex relationships are wrong ! Let's see what God himself and the Bible says about it.
Genesis 19:5-7 (Tells us it's a Wicked Thing !) - They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them." Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing. Leviticus 18:22 (It's Detestable !) - Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman, that is detestable. Leviticus 20:13 (Again it's called: Detestable !) - If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. Leviticus 20:13 (Folks engaged in homosexual, Immoral or adultery will NOT enter Heaven !) - Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders.
3. Jesus wasn't really born of a virgin
If you deny the Virgin Birth then you are removing the credibility of the Bible. To deny the Virgin Birth is to question the uniqueness of who and what Jesus Christ exactly is! Some say 'It's impossible for a virgin to give birth ?' That is true except when God makes it possible ! Remember, God can do anything, he does not have to obey our laws of physics, normality's, or anything !
Matthew 1:23 - The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel –which means, “God with us.” Isaiah 7:14 - Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.
4. Jesus was married and had a child
The Bible does NOT mention that Jesus was married ! This is more new age thinking ! Non-christians think of nothing but sex when they think of a relationship between a man and a woman. What the Bible does tell us about Jesus and the woman they are now saying he was married to, 'Mary Magdalene' was that they were the best of friends. Clearly Mary and Jesus loved each other, but as friends ! She recognized him as who he was, the saviour !
Mary was a great witness for Jesus, she even was the first one he appeared to after the resurrection. Those who believe and teach the myth about Jesus being married and having a child do so as an attempt to "humanize" Him, to make Him more ordinary - like everyone else.
5. I believe in Heaven but not Hell as a literal place
That is the most stupid statement of all, because it goes against every purpose of Jesus's death on the cross, our salvation ! If there was no Hell and we all go to Heaven, then Jesus died for nothing ! Plus if there is NO Hell, then the Bible is not accurate, and this is of course not so, the Bible is 100% accurate and true. Let me show you some Bible verses that tell us that hell is a real place of fire.
Matthew 25:46 - Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life. Revelation 20:15 - If anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. - Matthew 25:41 - Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
6. Reincarnation - Past Lives
This is of course NOT true ! A person has one physical lifetime, then they spend eternity in either one place, Heaven or Hell. There is NO reincarnation or past life. But what about them feelings or the things I talked about while under hypnosis ? That is either one of two things ! Either in the years since birth this person who has feelings of another life, read or heard of the information and later forgot about it in their normal consciousness, or they were under the influence of demonic forces and this information came from them, or under hypnosis they were the victim of demonic influence. When in a hypnotic state the mind is not under the normal control of the persons will, they are open to influence, this influence can come from the hypnotist or a demonic spirit.
Demons have been around for longer then the earth and know facts about history, and have easy access to historical records, births, deaths, even peoples feelings, that have died years before. If you believe in reincarnation, you are not believing in the Bible. If you believe the Bible, reincarnation with the law of karma is a contradiction to the Bible, because it offers no loving God, no forgiving grace, and robs the Almighty of his attribute of mercy. The sacrifice of Christ on the Cross and the shedding of his blood cannot be compatible with a system of belief that denies his atonement, and in Hebrews 9:27, it states - Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.
7. Ghosts - Communicating with the dead - EVP and other signs from the dead
The Bible clearly tells us there are NO ghosts as far as them being the souls of dead people that roam the earth or come back to talk to us after death ! The spirit returns to God at death and is then spends eternity in either heaven or hell. So then what or who are we seeing when a dead loved one appears to us, or when we see a person (ghost) in a house or basement ? This is a demonic spirit. Remember these beings have great knowledge of the past and can even predict future events, and they can appear as anyone or anything. Remember the Bible says even the devil (Satan) can appear as an angel of light ! The demons can shows up as orbs, people, animals and other things on film, or they can whisper, talk in echos, backwards, ancient languages, and more on voice recorders (EVP).
Some of the reasons these demons are appearing more and more around the country as ghosts are: They want folks to dabble in the occult, using such things as Ouija Boards, Pendulums, Automatic Writing and other satanic things to try to contact their dead loved ones, in reality all this will do is allow demonic activity to occur or manifest in the persons life.
Plus, the more people that start trying to talk to the dead, gives these beings a role in our human lives, something that should be filled by Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, not Satan ! In Ecclesiastes 12:7 it says - And the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. Job 7:9-10 - As a cloud vanishes and is gone, so he who goes down to the grave does not return. He will never come to his house again, his place will know him no more. We are even WARNED to NOT even try talking or communicating with the dead ! Stay away from psychics, mediums, fortune tellers, Ouija boards, pendulums and any occult activity: Let no one be found among you ... who is a medium, spiritualist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord' (Deuteronomy 18:10-12).
I could go on and on, such crap as the Da Vinci Code, The Jesus Papers, and much more is running rampant across the globe ! This stuff is all 'doctrines of demons !' How can you be sure that what you are told, or read is the Biblical truth (100%) ? Read the Bible for yourself ! And accept Jesus Christ as your saviour so you can understand spiritual things and not be deceived.
The Bible says that folks that don't know Jesus as their personal saviour or are not saved, are actually spiritually blind ! They cannot even understand biblical truth. Many people have tried to read the Bible and they can not make any sense out of it. Then when the Holy Spirit works in their hearts they accept Jesus...they get saved...and it is like they are reading a different book, a book they can understand. 1 Corinthians 2:14 (NIV) - The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.
