My Journey Out New Age Spiritualism – Laura Maxwell’s Story.

As a spiritual counsellor, I’m honoured my work is shared worldwide via satellite TV, radio, books, magazines and so on. My mother and I were taught Lucifer is god when involved in new age spiritualism. I now expose the Globalist Agenda – the elite NWO cabal, from my inside knowledge of Luciferianism and Theosophy.

‘Laura educates people, from personal experience, on the dangers of New Age, Witchcraft, Occult and their Luciferian links to the New World Order’s global spiritual agenda, etc.’

As my story was recently published in Premier Christianity I’m resharing this previous post for those new to my blog. It’s a great honour to be featured in the UK’s leading Christian magazine and I am so grateful to God for this opportunity to share His love and power with others.

My Journey Out New Age Spiritualism – Laura Maxwell’s Story.

 (Taken from the About page).

We sincerely hope to humbly contribute to the journeys of those on a spiritual quest!

Do you enjoy ghost hunting, spirit communication or the paranormal? Maybe you explore esoteric or metaphysical interests, eastern mystical practices, or evolving spiritualities?

Perhaps you follow an ancient path based on Paganism? Do you practice Magick, Wicca, Neo-New Age, or the Occult?

As an open-minded seeker of truth, please consider hearing from myself and others steeped in such lifestyles. Discover secrets we experienced via supernatural realms and where it eventually led us.

When I was a Spiritualist, I was taught the New Age agenda – to recruit masses globally to Luciferianism and the New World Order. In those days, I fully agreed with such plans. Now, I’m aware of the truth behind it all! As supernatural whistleblowers, we expose inside secrets from top spiritual leaders.

Silence is consent. If you care, please share.

Silence is consent. If you care, please share.

Unfortunately, those like us are not often seen in the popular media. The world tends only to hear the one point of view, which is of course biased reporting! A spiritual form of propaganda is occurring. Even within scientific communities, they claim to portray ALL theories of any topic of debate. But with ‘spirit communication’, our ‘theory’ is rarely given air time!

You may suspect this is a conspiracy theory, so please use your critical thinking skills. Research online for hard evidence to back up our claims!

Truth

ೋƸ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒೋ

In 1996, I began to disclose my own private experiences. From 2008, I’ve been very privileged to share regularly on satellite TV and radio shows, broadcast over Europe and USA. Some of them are included in the playlist below.

The below interviews on Truth Frequency Radio, including The Kev Baker Show and other shows remain a few of my personal favourites. Namely because they air on Truth Frequency Radio – a very popular alternative network with a large global following of spiritual seekers.

Some of my TV interviews were requested by and aired on various Christian and secular TV channels across Asia, Russia, Pakistan, Ukraine, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

I also host a weekly talk show on Eternal Radio. On ‘The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell.’ I interview international guests, who share their dramatic true stories, eg, Ex Mediums, Ex Psychics, Ex Witches, Ex Pagans, etc. Some of them are authors and some have also shared their stories on TV.

My story has been featured in various Christian, secular and Spiritualist magazine articles, newspapers, a site of the leading Occult awareness ministry of 30 years in the UK, one of the leading Occult awareness sites in USA, other well known ministry websites and blogs. (Most of these people listed, have appeared on TV – please see the links).

Other overseas ministries have translated it into, for example, Croatian, Danish, Hindi, Spanish and Portuguese for magazines and TV. See link for translations.

In 2013, it was included in two new school books, now being used in secular schools across Australia and New Zealand.

It was an honour when EX Satanist, Jeff Harshbarger, asked me to write a chapter for his 2nd book ‘Dancing With The Devil,’ published in USA, by Charisma House, 2012. (I wrote a review for his first book). Jeff has been a guest on many Christian TV and radio programs in the USA and beyond.

Another well known US preacher and TV evangelist is including my testimony in a new book, due to be published in late 2016. (Details here, once released).

It’s also been an honour to be a guest speaker in churches, venues & conferences across the UK, or radio stations around the world.

During which, I share my testimony, or teach about the New Age, Occult or also the ancient spiritual roots of Halloween.

Plus I expose evil crimes committed by some Satanic and occultic groups on Halloween. (See my interviews with Ex Satanists over the years).

Laura Maxwell’s Story.

‘What New Age Spiritualism Means To Me Now.’

Supernatural phenomena interested me since childhood. I loved reading children’s books containing ‘ghost stories’, or watching TV programs about ‘ghosts’. If Harry Potter had been written then, I’m sure it would have been one of my favourites.

A few psychic episodes as a child added to the intrigue I felt. My mother’s uncle lead a Spiritualist Church and was also high up in Freemasonry. Mum had also experienced psychic events since her childhood, but didn’t pursue it seriously until later. By the time I began Secondary School, she felt ready to explore further. Once, when walking her dogs in the park, a Medium approached. He saw her potential as a Medium and invited her to a local Spiritualist Church in Glasgow, Scotland.

Very quickly, Mum became totally engrossed by the supernatural. As a new member of the Spiritualist Church, she attended Sunday services, mid week psychic development groups, Yoga classes, etc. She shared everything she learned with me. I also became fascinated. Her heart’s desire was to train in Mediumship. The other Mediums encouraged this, asking her to join an Open Circle and to meditate with them to channel ‘spirits of the deceased’. Mum was keen to develop her abilities of Clairvoyance, Clairaudience and Clairsentience and to learn from other Mediums.

Every time Mum booked a Private Sitting for a Life Reading with a resident or visiting Medium, she’d buy a recording of the session and we’d listen to it later. It amazed me that a half-hour recording could contain so much explicit communication from alleged ‘spirits’. Specific facts were relayed about our lives, in minute detail. Precise names, places and dates were often given. It was obvious the Mediums weren’t charlatans, falling upon names by sheer chance. They accurately described the physical appearance, personalities and even repeated common phrases of our apparent dead relatives, as they conversed with spirit entities.

I also joined the Spiritualist Church in Glasgow. Mum and I devoured mystical books on Yoga, opening the chakras, Crystal Healing, Reincarnation, Alternative Therapies, etc. Attending New Age Centres and Psychic Fairs, we absorbed as much information as we could to help in our ‘spiritual enlightenment’. With our passion for environmental and conservation concerns, social justice and international peace, we gladly participated in attempting to heal people and animals, through either contact or distant psychic healing.

We also read books on positive thinking. A favourite was, ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’, by Norman Vincent Peale, a 33rd degree Free Mason, who also believed in Clairvoyance, claiming to see his dead father at meetings.

Going Deeper

Laura's season as a goth

Laura’s season as a goth

Eventually, we attended Transfiguration Sessions. Mum developed in the area of Automatic Writing. Mediums predicted I’d become an author on behalf of Spirit Guides and a Psychic Artist, drawing portraits of ‘dead relatives and Spirit Guides’ for clients. I very briefly experimented with Kirlian Photography; using infra red film I captured images of ectoplasm as it formed.

Over the next 10 – 15 years, we’d often hear of Mediums who could no longer control when spirits spoke to, or through them. Many Mediums had nervous breakdowns. Some attacked people claiming their Spirit Guides had forced them to, or were admitted to psychiatric wards.

We heard reports of ‘poltergeist activity’ in Medium’s homes. At first, we accepted explanations that mischievous or obnoxious spirits could sometimes come through and it was a potential hazard of the job. But when it happened to us, it became intolerable and impossible to function properly.

Our beloved friends, the other Psychics and Mediums, kindly tried, but failed to free our home from spirits. The spirits spoke to Mum constantly, giving her no rest, depriving her of sleep, attacking her physically, chapping loudly from within wardrobes, slamming all the doors, etc.

On one of the occasions when they forced her into a trance against her will, she was frying food. When she came out of trance, the kitchen was consumed by fire. I arrived home after the Fire Brigade had extinguished it, just before it spread to other rooms. We all realized Mum, our dogs and cats could have been killed. One afternoon, Mum’s elderly Aunt who had also visited Spiritualist Churches, felt invisible hands grab her and throw her down our stairs. Her wrist was broken. Another day, while approaching shops, I watched in horror as Mum was lifted from the ground and catapulted from the pavement, landing on the bonnet of a passing car. This particular incident happened more than once.

Hellish Encounters

Naturally, we decided to withdraw from Spiritualism and kindly asked our ‘Spirit Guides’ to leave. To our shock, they laughed and insulted us. They began to physically attack us. This was deeply perplexing, as they’d provided guidance and kindness for many years! It became obvious they’d clearly deceived us, pretending to be benevolent, when in reality they were wicked all along.

It dismayed us that all the Spiritualist Mediums and Psychics we knew and dearly loved, had clearly been deceived too. After all, it was they who had introduced us to those spirits. They’d also assumed such ‘Spirit Guides’ and ‘friends’ were genuine.

However, the biggest shock came when even our supposed ‘dead relatives’ turned against us too! They also mocked and hit us. The spirits warned we couldn’t leave the occult, as we had unknowingly granted them control from the first day we invited them into our lives! It became clear to Mum and I there was something dangerous and deceptive in Spiritualism and forms of spirit communication, if even the Mediums who had brought our fake ‘spirit friends’ to us had not discerned their true spiritual identity.

A Christian Encounter

‘You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free’, John 8:32

Susan, a Christian I’d met in a Psychology Tutorial, at university, invited me to her Pentecostal Church. She explained other Psychics who had experienced similar tragedies were set free from spiritual attacks when they accepted the Biblical Jesus Christ as their Saviour, (not the New Age false Christ).

I did feel an atmosphere and presence in her church I’d never known and I hungered for it. When they prayed for healing and spoke in tongues, I senses instantly they had a supernatural power, but I wasn’t sure what it was! To me, Jesus was just a Healer and Medium.

That night when I returned home, the spirits were furious that I’d visited the Pentecostal Church. I was sure they’d try to kill me. (To learn more of those few days, please watch my TV interviews!)

I cried out to God in sheer desperation. I asked if He was real, to please speak to me through a bible I found. I had a divine revelation the bible was totally true, so renouncing Spiritualism, I came to Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I received Him as my Saviour and asked Him to cleanse me from all sin. Finally, I had saw the light. I had found truth. I had found Love Himself! Much to my own surprise, I had become a Christian, something I thought I’d never do! Never say never folks!

The very next morning, a Romany Gypsy appeared at my door. I’d been thinking about her for hours and now there she stood! She said she had got born again and that Jesus had sent her to tell me I was now on the right path! I began attending the church I’d just visited.

A Darker Tragedy Strikes

Just a few months later, during my 2nd year at university, Mum’s health deteriorated & her ‘Spirit Guides’ became more violent and even threatened to control her and use her to kill people. Mum’s doctor couldn’t accept poltergeist activity and was sadly diagnosed as Schizophrenic. Mum was detained in a Psychiatric Hospital, much to the utter shock of my Mum and myself.

Although my Mum gave her heart to Jesus a few months later, the Pentecostal Church I’d joined had no experience at that point, of helping people like Mum. At that time, they didn’t have the Deliverance Ministry. As a baby Christian myself, I didn’t yet know there were Christians who could’ve cast those demons out of my Mum in Jesus Name. After months of heavy sedation, the psychiatrists discharged her, but when she returned home, she endured further harassment from spirits. Sadly, the church I belonged to didn’t yet have experience of casting demons out of homes or people.

My pastor was young and inexperienced. He assumed mum and I were just over imaginative or mentally ill. So, we received no help. To my utter shock and dismay, my mother committed suicide.

Although not rare for someone to do … over the past couple of decades I’ve heard of many around the world, affected by the New Age or Occult have been in psychiatric wards or killed themselves. Therefore, I feel it emphasizes the crucial importance for Christians to embrace the Deliverance Ministry, more commonly known as Exorcism, and become God’s instruments to release freedom to such tortured people in Jesus Name.

(Over the years as a Christian, I have been honoured and delighted that the Holy Spirit has used me to see people & homes be set free from demonic harassment/poltergeist type activity, etc). “Greater is He (Jesus), that is in you; than he (satan) that is in the world.”

My chains are gone!

Soon after, I found another Pentecostal Church. It was experienced in Deliverance prayer – casting out demons. The co-Pastor, visited my mum’s home, successfully cleansing it the first time they prayed. At the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, all the spirits left and never returned. Praise God! Later, I sold Mum’s home without worrying the new tenants would be harassed.

The Pentecostal Church I attend, doesn’t serve up dead religious traditions or control. Instead it’s lively, loving and joyful. Members are trained by the Holy Spirit to prophesy of the future. Minds and bodies are healed and other miracles, signs and wonders occur. Actually, in a couple of years I saw more people healed in Pentecostal Churches than I ever saw in over ten years at Spiritualist meetings.

Deception Exposed

When I became a Christian, even before I had read the Biblical warnings of the Occult in Deuteronomy chapter 18, I suddenly saw the truth. I instinctively realized what had happened. The missing piece of the jigsaw slipped into place. When our ‘dead relatives and Spirit Guides’ began to attack us, it indicated those lying evil spirits had deceived us, merely impersonating our loved ones. It made complete sense when Christians explained from the bible, it’s impossible for dead souls to return to talk with us, as they remain in heaven or hell for eternity.

Also, the bible describes spirits are evil ‘fallen angels,’ or demons. They’ve existed since before creation. They possess vast psychic knowledge of our families & historical figures down the generations. Like ‘shape shifters’ from movies, they can easily disguise their evil form to pose as our ‘deceased family,’ to mimic ‘Spirit Guides,’ or any famous celebrity that ever lived. With their supernatural powers they can perform many false miracles. Through hypnosis etc, they can even produce false visions of your ‘former lives’.

They are masters of disguise. The Bible says that entities who work through Witches, Mediums, Ghost Hunters, etc, are called ‘familiar spirits’. They are psychic and very familiar with how all your ancestors looked and spoke, as they were on the earth at the same time. Thus, these entities can impersonate them perfectly. The Hebrew word for familiar spirits actually translates as ‘demon,’ evil spirit.

This is emphasised in passages such as 2 Corinthians 11 to 14 : “And no wonder! For Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.” The evil spirits working through Spiritualism, Ghost Hunting, etc, are evil demons. They serve Satan to deceive precious Mediums and others, appearing as dead relatives, Spirit Guides, ascended masters, goddesses, Reiki healing guides, aliens, fairies and so on. (Please see my article on how to ‘Test The Spirits’, or watch my TV programs on this crucial topic.)

The counterfeit nature of spirits makes sense, because many top Mediums even claim that Lucifer is god and the source of all psychic powers! (Benjamine Creme, David Spangler, Madam Helena Blavatsky, etc). They believe Lucifer is still an angel of light; god; the Saviour, and that he did not fall and become Satan, as the Bible states. Thus, Luciferianism is one of the roots of the New Age and Spiritualism. Madam Helena Blavatsky, a self proclaimed Luciferian Medium, was called the ‘mother of the New Age movement’. (Please see my article or watch my TV programs on this topic.)

Before I left the Occult, I was unaware the Bible lovingly advises in 1 John 4 verse 1 to 3 : “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God … every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus has come in the flesh is not of God … And this is the spirit of the Antichrist …”

Please see my note with directions on how to Test The Spirits, in the menu bar at the top. I’ve known countless numbers who have challenged Guides and other spirits, to show their true identity, in Jesus Christ’s name. Often they scream as they reveal their true evil form.

A Crucial Observation

Since I left Spiritualism and became a Christian, I have never been contacted by any spirit claiming to be a ‘dead relative’ or ‘Spirit Guide’! All such supernatural activity stopped, when I found the truth, that they were demons impersonating family or spiritual beings! You’d think, if they were truly real, they’d still try to ‘contact’ me!

Sharing With Others

About Jesus

When a Spiritualist, I’d regarded Jesus as just a cosmic force; part of the universal consciousness, a reincarnation of another god or great Healing Medium. Since my conversion in 1994, I’ve met, spoken to & read of many Ex Psychics, Ex Gypsies, Ex Mediums, Ex Witches, Ex Luciferians, and even Ex Satanists. They all discovered the entities of their ‘Spirit Guides’, ‘dead relatives’ or ‘goddesses’, were not who they claimed to be. These people were also set free from demonic attack after receiving Christ into their lives & receiving His overwhelming love and deliverance into spiritual freedom, (Exorcism).

Two successful Glasgow Mediums, Sadie Bryce and Geordie Aitken also became Christians. Sadie went to the same Spiritualist Church I did. She spoke of her occult past in BBC programs and an audio recording. Paul Watson wrote a book detailing Geordie’s experience. As Christians, Sadie and I wrote to each other and I met Geordie several times, discovering we all had been misled by deceiving spirits in the same ways. Geordie himself lost friends to demonically induced suicide. He spoke on my behalf at my mum’s funeral.

Jesus Christ healed me of a phobia of heights and physical conditions including Fibromyalgia and migraine headaches. He has given me joy and peace I simply never knew existed. His very tangible Presence of pure love is more real than any powerful encounter I experienced within Spiritualism, New Age or Mystical practises. I am forever grateful to Him for transforming my life and I give Him all the glory.

I now host a weekly show on Eternal Radio, called ‘The Supernatural with Laura Maxwell,’

On it, I interview international guests, who share their dramatic true conversion stories. My guests include former Mediums, Psychics, Witches, Pagans, Satanists and so on.

Some of them are authors or have shared their stories on TV and radio.

Since 2008, I’ve shared my life story, on satellite TV, radio, in conferences and churches. I also write for magazines. I don’t receive payment for this. I’m delighted and blessed to hear from people worldwide. They share they’ve also been saved out of the New Age and Occult – by the transforming, mighty power of our loving Saviour and Friend, the Lord Jesus Christ. Some say it was my testimony that helped lead them to Jesus. Hallelujah!

A Final Word

I continuously hear from more people who are turning away from Spiritualist Meetings, Tarot Card Parties, Yoga, Meditation, Reiki and all other spirit empowered practises.

The Death Of A Medium by Laura Maxwell.

The Death Of A Medium

(Testimony Based Poem – In loving memory of my mother).

A mother who muttered and spoke with ‘the dead’,
With ease predicting future events,
Dreams and visions played out in her head,
To development seances, she gladly went.

For this destiny was I born?
Events unexplained that brought a thrill.
A life for The Occult was being formed,
Strange sights drew me in deeper still.

From Astral Projection to Yoga and Zen,
Sketching ghosts – the Psychic Arts,
Crystals and chakras, trance and T.M.,
Our home became ‘haunted’. Fear seized our hearts.

Then mother became more and more ill,
Dangerous accidents. Terror by night.
Spirits controlling against her will,
Levitating furniture, a common sight.

Psychics and Mediums who tried their best,
To rid our home of unwelcome guests.
No help from gods of wood or stone,
Mum and I lost in our curs’ed home.

Afraid to stay in, yet afraid to go out,
Wherever she went, they would follow.
Their evil voices would mock and shout,
Cars halt, as spirits threw her across the road.

Events became more absurd,
I feared what would befall my mum.
Trapped in an unseen world,
For her, this meant the end had come.

Hell’s final surge. The gates open wide,
Spirits assailed her like a tide,
Blackest darkness, no hope in sight.
Mum’s final action – suicide.

My screams of horror echoed that night,
I found a Bible, searching for Light.
Praying ‘Who is the true God? Please reveal.
Jesus Christ, is He Saviour of all?’
His Word showed me Jesus forgives and heals,
Ghosts scream – fled our house when His Name I called,
Peace flooded my soul like a waterfall.

I learned to trust Him. His Love cast out fears.
Joy in His Presence. Worship sublime.
A new church family I can call mine.
Christ lovingly saved me from Satan’s snare.

Too late now, for Mum to pray,
If still alive, what would she say?
“Don’t dabble in New Age. Please! Not even a spell,
Why sign your life over to a living hell?”

ೋ♥Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ♥ೋღ

The Truth About Crimes Committed In Jesus’ Name.

To introduce this article, Steven Bancarz wrote in Reasons for Jesus, ‘The crimes committed in the name of Christianity throughout history do not reflect the teachers of Jesus or the Bible. We can’t judge a worldview by it’s abuse’.

Jesus Vs Crimes Committed In Jesus’ Name By George Mitrakos George Mitrakos https://reasonsforjesus.com/author/george-mitrakos/

“Jesus? Peace? Well, how about all those crimes committed in his name? I guess he is not as peaceful as you Christians make him out to be!” Oh boy! I can hear the sighs right now! You see, there exists a seldom number of those within the Christian community who have not come across such statements as the one just brought forth.  And who can really be so surprised?

I mean, some of the most horrendous crimes in history have been perpetrated in the name of the Messiah, successfully blemishing the image of his being among the realm of nonbelievers and skeptics around the world. But is this our Jesus? Is this the Christ of the New Testament? It seems as if humanity’s reasoning has fallen so short to the point of permitting the actions of fallible human beings to demonstrate the nature of an infallible God.

So, since I have yet to see an article which successfully tackles each of these crimes by bringing the teachings and actions of Christ within its light, this is exactly what I am going to do.

Within this article, we are going to be looking at the following points:

  1. Not everything done in the name of Christianity is representative of Christianity.
  2. The Inquisitions (Torture)
  3. The KKK (Racism)
  4. Burning Witches (Murder, Witch Hunts)
  5. The good ship Jesus (Slavery)
  6. Catholic Priests (Child Abuse)

1. Not everything done in the name of Christianity is representative of Christianity.

Although it was over 2000 years ago since Christ came to earth, it is quite evident that not a lot has changed. At least in terms of the topic at hand. You see, even during the time of Christ, his disciples took part in the performance of certain actions which Christ immediately rebuked or amended.

For example: In the garden of Gethsemane, whilst the mob was preparing to seize Jesus, Peter pulled out a sword from its sheath and struck off a man’s ear.  Jesus then healed the victim and told Simon to put the sword away, for whoever lives by the sword shall die by it as well. Luke 22:51Matthew 26:50-52.

Herein is a perfect illustration of what is going on in our time. In fact, probably even more so seeing as this was not an ordinary follower of the Messiah. This was one of the travelling twelve. An apostle. An eyewitness to the life and ministry of Christ. Yet, what we see is that he also managed to lose control and resort to violence.

But despite these doings, they were not in accordance with the teachings of the Lord. And he was sure to call him out on it, just like he calls his people out by means of his written word. So if an apostle and eyewitness to the workings of Christ was capable of falling short, then it should come to no surprise that modern day, so called “Christians” have the potential to do so as well, either knowingly or unknowingly.

2. The Inquisitions (torture)

The inquisitions were established by the Roman Catholic Church to serve the purpose of seeking out, trying and sentencing people who were found guilty of heresy. The purpose of the inquisitions was to secure and maintain religious and doctrinal unity in the Roman Catholic Church and throughout the Holy Roman Empire, through either the conversion or persecution of alleged heretics.

The 4 inquisitions were as followers:

– The Medieval Inquisition

– The Spanish Inquisition

– The Portuguese Inquisition

– The Roman Inquisition

Now the inquisitors used many methods of torture on the accused heretics for the purpose of acquiring a confession. Some of these methods included:

Stropaddo: Where the hands of the accused were tied behind his back and bound to the ceiling. The subject was then raised, hanging from his arms. Sometimes the tormenters would jerk the body, add weights to the ankles and even employ some heavy drops. All this permitted for his shoulders to pull out from their sockets.

Rack: During the rack, the subject had his hands and feet tied or chained to rollers at one or both ends of a wooden frame. The torturer turned the rollers with a handle, which pulled the chains or ropes in and stretched the subject’s joints. If the torturer continued, the accused’s arms and legs could be torn off.

But what about the Messiah? Did Jesus ever take part or sanction the torturing of heretics?

The word torture in the gospels: First and foremost, the word torture or torment is found no more than 10 times in the gospels. None of them, however, serve as commands for Christians to employ against other people.

Jesus did not torture or kill heretics: During Christ’s 3 year ministry, he spent a lot of time discussing and debating a people called the Pharisees and the Sadducees. Now many people may ask what this has to do with the inquisitions?

Well, when you further examine the practices and notions of these Jewish groups, you will see that they too, would have fallen under the category of “heretics” as well:

The Sadducees

The Sadducees were a very logical and legalistic people. They did not believe in the resurrection of the dead, the afterlife, spirit realms and angels or demons.

The Pharisees

The Pharisees did not adhere to the practice of “sola scriptora”. They were the possessors of other books and doctrines which were forged by men. So much so that many a times these man made traditions would OVERRIDE the word of God. One of its consequences can be found in the gospel of Matthew, where these people would create a hierarchical system of oaths which would justify and permit lying! Matthew 23:16-22.

Yet despite these heretical views and practices, Jesus did not command them to be tortured or killed. Read the gospels, you will not find it anywhere. Rather, when they tortured and killed Jesus, he told the Father to forgive them (Luke 23:34) Jesus did not hang them (stropaddo), yet he hung on the cross. Jesus did not tear off their limbs, he commanded us cut off whatever causes us to sin (Matthew 5:30).

Jesus says love heretics

Jesus commands us to love all people, brothers and enemies alike (Matthew 5:44). He commands us to be good to all people, the good and the evil. (Matthew 5:44-45). And he commands us to love him by keeping his commandments. (John 14:15).

3. The KKK (racism)

Although this may have come to be a surprise a few decades ago, there is now little to no doubt that the KKK, one of the most prominent racist groups in the United States of America is rooted in Christian ideology. Or so they claim. Their symbols of flaming crosses are believed and held to represent faith in the Messiah, so much so that a recent KKK leader out of the state of Virginia claimed that they are a “Christian organization”. Now of course, these are all just words flowing right out of the mouths of Klan members.

But do their statements really hold any water?

The Jewish and Samaritan conflict:

During the time of Christ, there was also a great schism between 2 kinds of people: The Samaritans and The Jews. In 722 B.C. Assyria conquered Israel and took most of its people into captivity. The invaders then brought in Gentiles to resettle the land. And during this time, intermarriages took place between the Jews and the Pagans. This served as a point of contention between them and the pure blooded Jews.

For the Samaritans, in their eyes, represented all the worst of the Jews in that they opposed God’s choice of David, Jerusalem and polluted their bloodlines which forever disqualified them from producing the Messiah, Jesus Christ. In fact, the hate between both of these people was so strong that they did not even converse with each other in private or in public.

Jesus breaks the barriers:

But let us now see how Jesus dealt with this situation:

  • Jesus talked to a Samaritan woman at a well in John 4 while offering her eternal life. The woman went on to ask him “How can you, a Jew, ask me, a Samaritan, for water?”
  • Jesus makes a Samaritan a HERO in one of his parables. Luke 10:30-37.

So although the Jewish people established a great racist schism between them and the Samaritans, Christ went beyond that and treated them like his very own.

Jesus opposed racism:

Furthermore, If Jesus endorsed such a belief in superior and inferior races, then he would have never commanded us to make disciples of ALL nations (Matthew 28:19). And likewise he would have never told Nicodemus that God so loved the world (John 3:16).

THERE IS NEITHER JEW NOR GREEK, THERE IS NEITHER SLAVE NOR FREE, THERE IS NO MALE AND FEMALE, FOR YOU ARE ALL ONE IN CHRIST JESUS. – GALATIANS 3:28

4. Burning witches (murder)

Witch hunting is another one of those crimes which Christianity is receiving the blame for. During the medieval time period, it was believed that certain diseases and bad weather was caused by witches found within the land’s populace, hence an order was issued by the church to have them all killed. Many people think 1 million innocents were killed by the witch-hunters, though Rudolph J. Rummel thinks 100,000 is a more accurate figure.

Medieval law codes such as the Holy Roman Empire’s “Constitutio Criminalis Carolina” stated that malevolent witchcraft should be punished by fire, and church leaders and local governments oversaw the burning of witches.  Although this was the church’s issued order, Jesus had a completely different approach.

Jesus is against destroying people (ironically, by fire):

While Jesus was entering a Samaritan village, the people there were very reluctant to receive him. As a result, the disciples wanted to send down fire from heaven to burn them. (Luke 9:54). Yet, Jesus rebuked them while stating “You don’t know what manner of spirit you are off”.

Jesus is against murder:

And not only that, but Jesus condemns murder altogether in Matthew 19:18, not specifying anyone in particular, implying that murder in regards to ALL people is against the Lord’s precepts.

Jesus and his disciples did not kill witches

In Acts 8:1-24, there was a sorcerer named Simon who resided in the area of Samaria, fooling people with his witchcraft. When Philip came unto him, he did not take part in any sort of witch burning or murder.

In Mark 7:24-30, Jesus is described as going into the regions of Tyre and Sidon. Now tyre and Sidon were largely pagan territories, where he healed a Syro-Phoenician woman. Ancient Phoenician religion was largely pagan which involved gods and goddesses as well as divination and sorcery/witchcraft. So the odds are extremely high that witches and sorcerers did in fact live in these areas.

Yet Christ did not issue for a witch hunt. He healed and preached.

5. The good ship Jesus (slavery)

And last not but not least, slavery in the New the world. When Europe initially began its settlement in the Americas, the very first slave ship which brought African slaves to that region was called “the good ship Jesus”. Now this was indeed the first, but definitely not the last. Countless of black slaves were shipped to the Americas whilst the Catholic church would subject them to hard labor, rape and torture. Many times this was perpetrated as a mere example to those who were thinking of fighting back.

Paul endorses slavery?

Now of course, many people like to quote the Pauline epistles which orders slaves to obey their earthly masters as substantiation of the bible’s permission for slavery. Ephesians 6:5. However, slavery in the 1st century Roman Empire was quite different to our view of slavery:

– Slaves were not distinguishable from others by race, speech, or clothing. They looked and lived like everyone else

– Slaves were not segregated from the rest of society

– Slaves made the same wages as free laborers, and therefore were not usually poor

– Slaves could accumulate enough personal capital to buy themselves

– Most slaves were NOT slaves for life.

Notice also that the masters must treat their slaves in the same way their slaves treat them without threatening them (Ephesians 6:9). He reminds them that they are no better than those they oversee, and God will not show favoritism. So, on a sarcastic note “What kind of slavery is this?”

The master-slave relationship clearly parallels the employer-employee relationship in our day.  It is the kind of relationship a person would have with their maid or their butler. Furthermore, Paul often sought freedom for slaves (Philemon 1:15–16).  But let us now hit the nail on the coffin.

Jesus and slavery:

Matthew 20:25-28

But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Here are a few things that we have to notice about this passage:

  • The Greek word for “Lord it over” is katakyrieuousin which means to exercise lordship over, to bring under one’s power, to subject to oneself, to subdue, master and to hold in subjection, to be master of. Jesus tells us NOT to be like that.
  • If we are to be great, then we must be slaves (servants) of other people. Mark 10:44 specifically says “slave of everyone”.

So the question arises: Does this sound like a people who can take upon themselves the role of a haughty and aggressive slave driver? Does this sound like a people who would subject those of another race under their power, demonstrating superiority and mastery?

What kind of slave master is one who is not permitted to Lord it over his slaves while being commanded to serve and be a slave to others?

6. Catholic priests (child abuse)

Now this should come as no surprise. Whenever it comes to the atrocities of religion, the raping of children immediately finds its way into the conversation, seeing as many of these instances were performed by catholic priests. As a matter of fact, according to the antlantic.com, the Catholic Church defrocked over 800 rapist priests in the last 10 years for child abuse.

But can such crimes really be used against the validity of Christianity? The answer is no. And here are 2 reasons why:

1) First and foremost, them sexually abusing the children forced them to commit either one or both of the following sins: Fornication and adultery, which Jesus clearly spoke out against. Mark 7:20-23Matthew 5:27-28.

2) Jesus valued children tremendously. Jesus said that it would be better off to drown yourself than to cause children to sin (Matthew 18:6). Jesus said that the kingdom of heaven belongs to children (Matthew 19:14). Jesus used a child as a standard for greatness (Matthew 18:3). Jesus used a child as a standard for admission into heaven (Matthew 18:3). Jesus healed children (Mark 5:41-42), (Matthew 17:18) and more.

Or how about this heavy-hitter:

“WHOEVER CAUSES ONE OF THESE LITTLE ONES WHO BELIEVE IN ME TO SIN, IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR HIM IF A GREAT MILLSTONE WERE HUNG AROUND HIS NECK AND HE WERE THROWN INTO THE SEA.” – MARK 9:43

 

Conclusion

So, as we come to the end of this article, you may be asking “what does all this really mean? Does this really make Christianity any truer than it was 5 minutes ago?” And the answer is no. What it does do, however, is attempt to make Christianity more accurate than it was 5 minutes ago.

Christianity is defined by the doctrines and teachings of the New Testament, not the behaviours of people who call themselves “Christians” 1000 years later.  And we must remember that not everyone who claims to be a Christian is actually a Christian:

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” – Matthew 7:21-23

Just because people call themselves followers of Christ doesn’t mean they are actually saved.  These horrors committed in Jesus’ name do not reflect him, the teachings of the New Testament, or Christians at large.  We have to go back to the text and analyze the person of Jesus, not the behaviour of people who claim to follow him.  You can’t judge the truth of a worldview by pointing to it’s abuse.

He is not that individual whom some Christians make him out to be. He is not a reflection of the disobedience that has been performed throughout human history.

Take him or leave him, he was a person filled with compassion, love and forgiveness. He is not the Jesus of the inquisitions and neither was he the Messiah of African slavery. He is the Jesus of the New Testament.

Ex Satanic High Priestess Charlotte Wants You To Know God’s Love Conquers All.

Halloween Rituals, ritual violence, sexual rituals, traitor deaths for those attempting to leave the cult, etc. Such horrific memories have afflicted this dear survivor for years. Despite it all, Charlotte, a Former Satanic High Priestess, born and raised in a satanic cult, longs to reach those still trapped in such cults. Her message is to assure them Jesus is greater and can set you free!

Ex Satanic High Priestess Charlotte Hates Halloween And Wants You To Know God’s Love Conquers All.

Host Johnny Storm of the Don’t Speak News show wrote,

”Listen in as Charlotte tells her story of her time in the cult and more importantly how she got out. Her message is that the love of Jesus Christ conquers all and that Lucifer is truly a defeated foe! I apologise for the audio issues, it always seems to happen when I interview someone.”

The Don’t Speak News Show

*******

Laura Maxwell,Charlotte and I have been talking together recently and she will be kindly writing a short article for my blog soon. This will be her first article, so please watch out for it!’

Charlotte told me that since leaving the cult:

“I praise God that although I have received some phone calls and been followed, Jesus has kept me safe.”

Freedom

A word of explanation: Many people born into cults suffer from abuse and trauma which causes the personality to split or fragment and this develops into what the medical profession sometimes call Multiple Personalities or Dissociative Identity Order. Much has been written about this in medical, nursing and psychological journals and is a very real phenomena.

The victim can have different personalities involved in different lifestyles, that he or she is unaware of at first, eg, a day personality and an evening personality. These may be referred to as alter personalities, alternates, or alters.

Often victims don’t tend to remember until their 30 or 40’s, when horrific flashbacks begin to occur. Details of which can be verified by members of their own families and so on, hence not just a result of an over active or paranoid imagination! Many who present for help can be suicidal but thankfully many do begin to recover, as their various alters become integrated.

For many who receive help from trained Christians, the benefit of healing prayer and the power of Jesus to bring integration is enormous.

Please pray for Charlotte and all those she desires to reach with her testimony of Christ’s love and power to overcome. Thank you.  Laura Maxwell

My Dad’s Recent Passing And Funeral by Laura Maxwell.

Laura Maxwell, ”My beloved father recently died, at aged 78.

My Dad’s funeral was absolutely beautiful. My dear minister friend led it. The songs were precious and it was so good to see my dad’s family and friends. Even friends who knew him from 45 years ago when he began his Drawing and Painting Degree at Glasgow School of Art, here in Scotland!

I’m raising funds for the hospice that cared for him in his final three weeks. They were so wonderful.

Church of Satan: ‘Satanists Embrace What Halloween Has Become’.

Church of Satan: ‘Satanists Embrace Halloween’.

The below statements released by The Church Of Satan, imply Satanists don’t perform evil rituals or worship Satan as a real entity. However, this isn’t the full story, as there are many branches and subcategories of Satanism who literally do.  For examples, please see links below this article.

Halloween Parade -New York’s Greenwich Village

NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 31: Revelers make their way along Sixth Avenue during the 43rd annual Village Halloween Parade, October 31, 2016 in New York City. Thousands of people are expected to attend as the parade travels up Sixth Avenue through the West Village. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)
_____

“Satanists embrace what this holiday [Halloween] has become,” reads the Church of Satan’s “Holidays” section of their F.A.Q. page.

According to History.com,

“[Halloween] originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints; soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes and eating sweet treats.”

The Church of Satan, on their “official” home page, says it was “[f]ounded on April 30, 1966 c.e. by Anton Szandor LaVey” and is “the first above-ground organization in history openly dedicated to the acceptance of Man’s true nature—that of a carnal beast, living in a cosmos that is indifferent to our existence.” To the Satanist, “all Gods are fiction.” Satanists “are thus [their] own ‘Gods,’ and as beneficient ‘deities,’” claim they “can offer love to those who deserve it and deliver [their] wrath (within reasonable limits) upon those who seek to cause us—or that which we cherish—harm.”

But what does the Church of Satan have to say about the holiday of Halloween? The following is the Church of Satan’s complete answer to the question “Is Halloween important to Satanists?”:

“We see this holiday as the night when the mundane folk try to reach down inside and touch the ‘darkness’ which for Satanists is a daily mode of existence. Particularly in the United States, Halloween is a time for celebrating monster films, wearing costumes of a macabre nature, and evoking the thrill of ‘fun fear.’ Children (of all ages) can indulge their fantasies by donning costumes that allow for intense role-playing and the release of their ‘demonic cores,’ the parts of their personalities often hidden from their friends, co-workers and families.

“Though there are traditions making this an occasion for recalling the dead, it has been popularized as a time to play with what historically were fears directed towards what were thought to be unquiet spirits of the departed. And the grand traditional question ‘Trick or treat?’ has become a means for fulfilling an indulgence in sweets, without the need to resort to the optional coercion.

“Satanists embrace what this holiday has become, and do not feel the need to be tied to ancient practices. This night, we smile at the amateur explorers of their own inner darkness, for we know that they enjoy their brief dip into the pool of the ‘shadow world.’ We encourage their tenebrous fantasies, the candied indulgence, and the wide-ranging evocation of our aesthetics (while tolerating some of the chintzy versions), even if it is but once a year. For the rest of the time, when those not of our meta-tribe shake their heads in wonder at us, we can point out that they may find some understanding by examining their own All Hallows Eve doings, but we generally find it simpler to just say: ‘Think of The Addams Family and you’ll begin to see what we’re about.’”

Mark Constantino, Famous Ghost Hunter – Interview With His Surviving Family: UPDATE.

Our Radio Interview.

Laura Constantino Leogrande’s recent online public comment to myself, Laura Maxwell.

Laura Constantino Leogrande, ”Laura Maxwell, I didn’t know what was going on with my family until it was too late. Thank you for freeing me of these evil spirits. What happened to me and my daughter were directly related to my late brother’s involvement in the paranormal.”

Ghost Adventures

Mark Constantino, a famous Ghost Hunter from the world famous and hugely popular Zac Bagan’s TV Show Ghost Adventures, and his wife Debby both came to extremely tragic deaths, as covered by the global media.

The Late Constantinos

Laura Constantino Leogrande, the late Mark’s surviving sister, contacted me last year, requesting help.

Deliverance Minister Michael Cummins on Revelation TV. https://christsetsyoufree.wordpress.com/youtube/

It was a sheer joy for me, as an ex spiritualist, and my friend and radio co-host, ex ghost hunter Dana Emanuel, to assist my friend, the radio and tv presenter Michael Cummins, in deliverance ministry, to ensure Laura Constantino and her home got freed from demons. Demons that had literally physically tormented her and her precious late daughter Samantha for years.

Christian Authors Thank New Agers and Occultists for Their New Book on The Enneagram.

Ex New Ager, Spiritualist and Professional Astrologer, participated in past life regression, astral travel, spirit contact, tarot cards and had spirit guides: Marcia Montenegro is a woman who I highly admire and have loved her resources for years!!!

IVP admits the Enneagram is spiritual!

Marcia Montenegro wrote the following article.

H/T Ron Huggins for info (Dr. Ronald V. Huggins, former professor at Midwestern Baptist Seminary)

So a Christian book’s authors are thanking New Agers and a heretic? The list of names includes thanks to the following:

At least 3 people who had nothing to do with the Enneagram: Evagrius Ponticus from the 4th century and Ramon Llull from the 13th century (see CANA article on No Christian Origins for the Enenagram at end) and Ignatius. The Enenagram as a supposed personality assessment did not even exist until the 1960s.

Occultist Oscar Ichazo (one person whose mother is a former follower and who grew up at Arica where Ichazo had his school called his work the “black arts”)

New Age psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo

Heretic Richard Rohr

Richard Rohr’s student and mentoree, Suzanne Stabile

Several New Agers such as:
Don Riso & Russ Hudson (co-founders of the Enneagram Institute)
Helen Palmer, noted New Age author
Kathleen Hurley
*Sandra Maitri,
**Roxanne Howe-Murphy
+Dr. David Daniels (worked with New Ager Helen Palmer)
Ginger Lapid-Bogda
Beatrice Chestnut (student of New Agers Helen Palmer and Dr. David Daniels)

Marcia Montenegro of CANA: So a Christian book is admitting the Enneagram is spiritual. But the issue is that it’s not Christian spirituality and cannot be because there is nothing Christian about the Enneagram. The spirituality of the Enneagram has always been occultic and New Age spirituality long before it got into the church. You cannot just slap on a Christian label to make it Christian. Moreover, it has no validity anyway as a personality tool It is a New Age design and like anything New Age that claims to dissect you, has no value, especially for a Christian.

*Sandra Maitri was a member of the first group of students to whom the Chilean psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo presented the enneagram system in the U.S (Info from Amazon)

**Roxanne Howe-Murphy runs The Deep Living Institute: “I’ve been drawn to the preciousness of this human experiment, to experiencing the Sacred in all that exists, and to exploring the great Mysteries of life. After a substantial period of ‘forgetting who I am,’ I was blessed to reconnect with my deeper guidance and discover both the profound power and practicality of presence.” – Except from her website at http://bit.ly/2yGO5yI

+ Dr. David Daniels: “Essence is that which underlies all external manifestations” — from website at http://bit.ly/2MEY1kv

++ Ginger Lapid-Bogda: “I’m more universal in approach, without an affinity to a particular religious practice. Maybe the closest would be Hindu, and though I’ve been to India and spent time at an Ashram. My spirituality is more like a universal consciousness.” From interview at http://bit.ly/2ZtijkQ

COMMENTS UNDER MARCIA’S FACEBOOK POST:

Marcia Montenegro: Sandra Maitri was one of Naranjo’s first students — see list in OP. I looked up most of the names and already knew some.

  • Don Veinot Joy has a copy of Father Mitch Pacwa’s 1992 book, Catholics and the New Age which has a subtitle, “How Good People are Being Drawn into Jungian Psychology, the Enneagram, and the Age of Aquarius” In chapter 4 he talks about it and the claim at the time was that Sufi’s had invented it but kept it a secret until they revealed it to the Western world through Ochazo. It seems as he went through the course at that time part of the process was Yoga and working to empty one’s mind of all thought. “We lay on the floor and imagined that we were burning logs turning into ashes. The goal was to let go of thought and identity and attain, ‘no-mind'” (pg. 98)
  • Ron Huggins Don Veinot. He actually was one of the guys who taught it to Richard Rohr.
  • Marcia Montenegro Mitch Pacwa has an article on the Enneagram in the CRI Journal.
  • Don Veinot In his 1992 book he is trying to warn Catholics about the dangers and occultism in that and other New Age things which were in the Catholic church at that time. Not sure at what point he intersected with Rohr.
  • Ron Huggins Pacwa writes:

    “Bob Ochs, after that course, came and taught it at our theologate, to people like Pat O’Leary from Cleveland, Colly Moloney in Canada, and later on, Gerry Hare who taught Richard Rohr. And I, who’d also taught Richard Rohr the Enneagram (before Gerry Hare taught him)—we began to teach the Enneagram course, and it has spread from these people in that course at the Jesuit School of Theology.”

    (Mitch Pacwa SJ. “The Enneagram: Spirituality It Is Not.” (www.catholicculture.org/culture/library/view.cfm?recnum=2622).

  • Ron Huggins The book you mention is pretty good. I have it.
  • Marcia Montenegro Yep, and Rohr won’t say Pacwa taught him since Pacwa has renounced and exposed the Enneagram.
  • Ron Huggins Yes, so far as I’ve seen, he credits Hare, but not Pacwa.
  • Marcia Montenegro Ron Huggins did you notice all the New Agers they thanked? I found 9 and I didn’t even look every name up. One I didn’t list is a mystical nun.
  • Ron Huggins Yes! It was striking. The problem is that those names are unfamiliar to Christians generally.
  • Marcia Montenegro Right. And I doubt most Christians know that the Enneagram Inst. is New Age. They probably think it’s some kind of academic or psychological organization.
  • Ron Huggins And its interesting how the Christian books describe the early players. Gurdjieff was an “Eastern Orthodox man.” Orchizo and Naranjo were “psychologists”.
  • Don Veinot Ron Huggins Ah, that is a different book than we have by Pacwa. Interesting admission.
  • Marcia Montenegro You can click on each image to see the names better in the Gratitudes image.

Why We Should Not Initiate Communication with Angels, Including Michael by Mark Hunnemann: PLUS Interview with Laura Maxwell.

Why We Should Not Initiate Communication with Angels, Including Michael.

By Reverend Mark Hunnemann.

I chose this title carefully because I could have entitled it: ”Why we should not communicate with angels”. However, I want to leave open the possibility that holy angels occasionally do initiate communication with humans today. All biblical theologians agree that overt angelic activity accelerates at crucial junctures in the flow of redemptive history (e.g. Announcement of Christ’s birth)

As we’ll see, the word “initiate” is key in this discussion.   Furthermore, it would seem that disguised interaction with humans is a rather frequent angelic tactic (Hebrews 13:2), as well as their general call to be ministering spirits to us. (see Hebrews 1:14) So, please don’t think I am in any way minimising the reality and frequency of their more covert role as our helpers/protectors, and occasional overt appearances. But, there is a big difference between that and OUR initiating contact with angels.

Every day I receive emails which advertise a book, services, etc. for how to communicate with an angel, or our guardian angel. I must confess that this is hot stuff. I mean, who would not be amazed and wowed by a visitation by an angel…especially if they had personal guidance for us? Pretty sensational, and we’re drawn toward that. I get it. But is this practice good, biblical and safe? No, on all three.

There is an explosion of books, and magazine articles dealing with this subject. In addition, in paranormal circles, some folks are attempting to reach angels. I know one man who will not try to reach the dead, but insists that he has been very successful in initiating communication with angels via traditional EVP methods. And he claims it’s biblical (more of that in a moment).

Moreover, in some churches there have been prophetic utterances that claim to be from an angel or a deceased preacher….or even Isaiah!  For the sake of time, we’ll focus on the claims for angelic utterances. The point is that popular culture, including the church, is getting inundated and fascinated with the angelic. And so, it is only appropriate that we ask: is it proper/biblical to initiate communication with angels? It’s sort of like an angelic form of EVP’s, which is precisely what one man I know claims is the voice he hears is. I have no idea how many EVP’s  are coming out these days that claim angelic authority, but my guess is that its growing in number. Satan is an opportunist. But whether the sought after angelic reply is audible or inaudible makes no difference—it is attempted communication with angels, and a possible reply.

So, the need is there for some clear guidance on this matter—one that takes into consideration all the salient data regarding angels. I may not answer some of the questions you may have regarding angels, but my focus is narrow: should we initiate communication with angels?

There are about 300 explicit references to angels in the bible…according to my concordance. Let us return to the man who claims that he not only gets EVP’s from angels, but that the bible warrants it. He cited verses like the angel talking to Mary, and the angels announcing the resurrection. But my point to him, which he seemed to have missed, was this: there is not a single case in the gospels or Acts where the Apostles (or even Jesus, as acting in His role as being the ideal Man) INITIATED communication with angel/s.

Nobody disputes that at crucial junctures of redemptive history angelic communication increased with God’s people. However, my point is simple—if Jesus and the apostles NEVER initiated communication with angels, then surely that is instructive. Authoritatively instructive because truth is communicated via Jesus’ actions, as well as His words—or lack of them in this case. Just because there is no explicit command not to initiate communication with angels, does not mean the bible is silent on the matter.

Surely the life and practice of Jesus and His apostles is as authoritative in its instruction as explicit teaching. This is especially true when we see that the gospels and the book of Acts have numerous accounts of angelic visitation, but none were instigated by a person. It was always God Almighty sending His holy angels to do His bidding on behalf of His Bride. Always and everywhere in the bible, angels are the initiators in angelic/human encounters.

I could stop there and that should be sufficient to show that we have no business contacting angels. But let me add this. Why does God detest our using horoscopes? Because He created the planets and stars for us to enjoy, and to distinguish between night and day/seasons, etc. To look to the stars and planets, which are part of God’s creation, for advice, instead of looking to the Creator for guidance and wisdom (re: relationships, love, decisions, job, and so on) is idolatrous and grieves God.

The same with angels—they are creatures and should not be sought out to give us wisdom, protection, and guidance. Why look to an angel when we can talk to our Heavenly Father? Again, it is idolatrous. Or to put it another way, we have the Bible and the Holy Spirit within us to guide and direct us in the paths of righteousness. Is not talking to angels a slight on the Holy Spirit? The classic text in Proverbs 3:5-6 needs to soak into our hearts and minds, and realize that God is jealous that we not only not look to our own insights, but also not the insights of other finite, fallible creatures, like angels.

Let me ask a simple question: WHY do you even want to talk to angels? For guidance…or insight…protection..or an angels perspective on the spirit realm…or being honest, just because it’s cool and fun? Doing an ‘end-run’ around God to attain these goals is unacceptable, even idolatrous. Do you see the prophets, apostles or Jesus communicating with angels for this purpose? NO! Then it is forbidden to us as well.

Switching gears, attempted communication with angels may open you to demonic oppression, just as trying to converse with the dead will do the same. Demons excel at mimicry…including mimicking angels (2 Corinthians 11:14). Unlawful communication with spirits is forbidden, and exposes you to demonic oppression. If you do receive a reply, then I’m fairly confident it is NOT an angel.

It may appear or sound like a holy angel, but its not. Having opened the door to the demonic, then you are communicating with the demonic. The reason why I keep saying that virtually all paranormal activity is demonic activity is because holy angels do not play EVP games, cause phantom footsteps, cause keys to disappear, etc. They are our servants  and delight in the supremacy of God’s glory.

Since this man (or anyone) is actually speaking to demon/s when he thinks he’s conversing with an angel, then there will be consequences. Though sincere, he is sincerely wrong…and traffic with demons will burn all those involved, and sadly there is often collateral damage as well. The children will start getting influenced.

Those who attempt to speak to human spirits or angels tend to become addicted to this endeavor. This is well documented, and the recent case of Steve Huff is a high profile case of a phenomenon that is very widespread…and ruining individuals and families.

It is safe to say that angels don’t want us talking with them because they are loathe to draw attention to themselves. In every way possible, they will seek that all the glory goes to God.

The man who actively seeks angelic EVP’s  says that this angel actually talks about the gospel and evangelizing the lost. Could and would a demon do that, he asks? The answer is: absolutely yes! Satan, and his angels, went to the best Seminary in the universe (heaven) and  were taught by God Himself. Hence, though demons may inspire a message that is entirely true, the identity of the messenger (the alleged angel) is a LIE. Let that sink in….the message is true, but the messenger is a LIE.

For example, by giving an evangelical and sound answer, the alleged angel ensnares the undiscerning and advances the kingdom of darkness by spreading the lie that one can communicate with angels. It’s the same MO he uses with communicating with allegedly deceased humans.

Demons, either by appearing as angels or deceased humans, can persuade the non-discerning simply by quoting the bible accurately. If he can make strategic advances in his kingdom, Satan will preach truth all day, but there is always a catch. And eventually, some imbalance will begin to appear in the teaching.

Some folks think that if they attend a church where the bible is preached, and the Holy Spirit is moving powerfully, then they are safe from demonic counterfeit or attack. Not so. Genuine spiritual revival—whether localized or large-scale revival—gets Satan’s attention and becomes his target to sow seeds of counterfeit revival. This was studied by Jonathan Edwards during the great revivals he and John Wesley was very instrumental in.

One example of such a counterfeit sign might be angels of light visiting a vibrant church and persuading people via a ‘prophetic utterance’ to focus so hard on ministry busyness, that they lose their fervor for prayer. The ‘angel’ wants them to get so busy, they lose their first love and become prayer-less in their busyness, and spiritually powerless. Busyness is not the same as bearing Holy Spirit fruit—starting with the fruit of the Spirit.

When you read the book of Colossians, we can see that there was the same fascination with angels then, as there is today in the West. It is simply another reflection of the ascendancy of the occult worldview which is taking over our culture, and is despoiling many Christians’ views of the proper role of angels.

Hebrews 1:14 is the classic text of the angels job description.

Hebrews 1:13-14 KJV

[13] But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? [14] Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

In addition, we remember 2 Cor. 11:14 of the “Angel of Light”

2 Corinthians 11:14 KJV

[14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Over-familiarity with angels is something that has been brought to my attention as well. With few exceptions, when humans had an encounter with a holy angel, they were terrified, and were tempted to bow down to them, which was abhorrent to the angels. However, it is instructive that the casualness that seems to accompany some of these alleged angel discussions, is in itself a red-flag.

Let me add the very common practice of reciting the prayer to Michael, the archangel. I know more than one person who seems to claim a special ministry partnership with Michael. That is a distinct issue, but let me strongly caution anyone who thinks that they are attended by Michael on a regular basis. He can only be at one place at a time, and frankly, why do WE think that he overlooks billions of other people just to be our ministry companion? He is the protector of God’s people in both Testaments.

If you’re explicitly relying on angelic help and communication in deliverance ministry,  Beware! You may end up needing deliverance yourself. Sometimes folks use ‘angelic’ help to heal people. In the NT we don’t see apostles consciously working alongside angels in ministry. Of course angels were present, but the apostles didn’t saddle up to them as partners…tapping into their powers. They relied on the Holy Spirit.

Here is the prayer said by countless investigators, as well as folks in general, seeking protection.

Michael the Archangel Prayer

“Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.”

In essence, we need to treat this petition to the archangel just like we did above regarding angelic communication in general. As is readily apparent, this ‘prayer’ is TAKING THE INITIATIVE TO CONTACT AN ARCH-ANGEL, MICHAEL.

Do we have any instances in the gospels or Acts in which the Lord Jesus or the apostles called on Michael to aid them in spiritual warfare? Is there any teaching in the epistles regarding how/why we should pray to Michael for assistance? A thousand times, NO! We’ve already noted that the church NEVER initiated communication with any angels. So, why do we think that WE should pray to an angel, when the early church did not? Do we know something Jesus didn’t? God forbid!

In addition, Ephesians 6 is the most comprehensive teaching on spiritual warfare in the bible. What does it say? Be strong IN THE LORD, and put on His full armor. No mention of praying to Michael. In Colossians, we are warned against anything that smacks of angel worship, and PRAYING to a creature like Michael is a form of worship…in this case, idolatry. You don’t commit idolatry, even sincerely, without consequences.

Colossians 2:18 KJV

[18] Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

Michael is a mighty warrior and worthy of respect, but he is not a saint. Gloriously, all genuine Christians are saints!

Don’t get me wrong: angels in general, and Michael in particular, are actively involved in spiritual warfare (Daniel 10:13). However, the Lord Jesus is the General of the Heavenly Hosts…not Michael. And for reasons already stated, we must not pray to him. God in His sovereign wisdom will dispatch His angels according to His will.

Why do we even want to pray to Michael, when he is but a finite creature, whom we shall judge and rule over for all eternity? He is more in awe of us then we are of him, and is part of the heavenly spectators of us as God’s image bearers, and those in union with Christ,  and he standing on tippy toe to see how God’s kingdom is advancing through US today!

On the other hand, I do get it. If I was on a case, it would be comforting to know that Michael himself was there. However, it is infinitely more comforting to know that I have the Word of God, and the Holy Spirit…and by virtue of my union with Christ, I have HIS authority over demons.

So, why do so many people pray to him? First, it has become common to do so in the paranormal community. But we take our clues from God’s Word, and not any practice that has become commonplace. Many wrong things/beliefs have been practiced by large segments of society, but our conscience is bound only by the bible. If you are a Christian, your primary identity is not a paranormal investigator, but part of the Body of Christ…and our allegiance is to Him, and not to a group. Following the crowd is not the way of a believer.

Another reason I’ve seen is that somebody we deeply admire prays this prayer. But once again, God’s Word is our guide, and not fallible humans, no matter how godly and ‘successful’.

For Roman Catholics, this is an ‘official prayer’, sanctioned by the church. For them, there are 2 strands of equal authority: the Word of God, and tradition…especially tradition sanctioned by papal ex cathedra decree or by ecumenical counsels. (eg Trent) But I see no evidence that this prayer has been officially sanctioned as ‘infallible tradition.

I say this gently but firmly, we must stop this praying to Michael; He is NOT a saint because he has not been saved by Christ and brought into union with Him. WE are the saints, and we should stop this practice of praying to an angel.

I cannot speak with absolute certainty regarding the consequences of praying this prayer, because I am not God. And many powerful things have been accomplished in and through folks who pray this prayer, but it is spite of this prayer and not because of it. It is tragic to consider, but if praying to angels opens doors to the demonic, then this prayer to Michael for protection may actually do the opposite. It may cause us to come under even more severe attack. It is supremely ironic, that a prayer meant to seek protection, may give the devil an opportunity (topos).

I’m sure God is merciful and often works through us despite our severe shortcomings, but that is no reason to continue a practice that is manifestly odious to God’s Word. The phrase “better safe than sorry” comes to mind if you have any doubt at this point. The stakes for all involved are way too high, just to continue praying to an archangel because it’s so common. Do we really think that Michael, who is supremely zealous for God’s glory, would be happy with us worshipping him via prayer? I think not.

I’ve already strayed, so let me re-state my basic premise: from Genesis to Revelation (especially the NT), when there is angelic encounters, they are NEVER initiated by man. GOD initiates the encounters with his holy and heavenly messengers. God said it, That settles it. I believe it. Amen.

PS. If this offends you, then please list biblical texts to support your case…thank you.

Angelic Communication, Is it Biblical?

In the above video, Laura Maxwell and Mark Hunnemann discuss the topic of this growing trend we see today in the paranormal community and abroad.

We even see it within the Catholic Church. The “initiation” of angelic communication… but, is it biblical? They also discuss the dangers involved in this practice, including demonic oppression, or even worse, possession.

You will hear how Laura shares with the listeners how she too was deceived by this practice and later sought deliverance as a result! A MUST HEAR!!!
