Occult Cleansing

Work with the Holy Spirit weekly on this cleansing process until all the occultism and the related fear, rebellion, accusation, unloving, etc are removed. The process is accelerated when you do this with another believer who is seeking all that God desires for their life. Also remember to replace the old with the new (the mindset and actions of Christ Jesus).

Ministry for the Occult Work Out

(Note to instructor: – Minister to broken heart, as occultism is a crutch

  • These folks have good heart, as they want to help people
  • People in occultism expect confrontation from Christians – the whole kingdom will rise up to any challenge. By- pass strife and argument.
  • Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves

Acupuncture: Based on the Chinese tradition that proper body function is controlled by the flow of the “life energy” of Ch’i through the body. Depending on whether the Ch’i is excessive or restricted it disrupts the balance of yin and yang. Disease or pain indicates that the flow of Ch’i through the body is either excessive, restricted or blocked. Acupuncture therapists try to help restore Ch’i by stimulating specific points of the body while inserting needles, small electric charges, high frequency sound waves or by laser

Acupressure: Is essentially the same as acupuncture but uses finger pressure to stimulate specific points. Other forms of this technique include:

Myotherapy: tries to manipulate the Ch’i by body trigger points

Orgonomy: claims to free the flow of Ch’i through sexual orgasm

Reflexology: limits pressure point to free Ch’i to the hands and feet. Has links to ancient Egyptian medicine.

Rolfing: uses intense massage to manipulate Ch’i

Zone Therapy: the same as reflexology

Applied Kinesiology: Based on the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, which combines Taoist metaphysics and philosophy. Teaches that the strength of certain muscle groups reflects the status of internal organs, determines which foods are harmful to the body and which herbs willbenefit most. Forexample a certain bottle of herbs is held in one hand while the opposite arm is extended, the therapist pulls down on the arm to compare the relative muscle strength. If the arm is weaker the Ch’i will be compromised.

Aliens, ET’s and UFO’s: extraterrestrials:  The X files, Hangar 18, Area 51, Roswell, New Mexico, and who can forget the very popular movies like: “ET”, “Independence Day”, “Men in Black”, Aliens, UFO’s, space people, Martians. ET’s are not what they appear to be, they are fallen angels, demons masquerading as ‘nice and friendly’ space creatures.

Alternative Medicine: Pseudo science – mixture of science and occultism.

Generally have roots to eastern religion, cloaked in scientific sounding terms and explanations. Spirits travel by association, so essential to research the history of the modality. Eastern religion believes in yin and yang, good energy and evil energy. Says we are energy appearing to be matter. It tries to manage evil energy. None of them offer the healing that God intends for us in spirit, soul and body.

American Indian Ceremonies: herbal medicine, sweat lodges, powwows, Trail of Tears, dream catchers, medicine wheel

Animal Worship: worship of animals; groups like PETA, “Spotted Owls”, “Striped Lizards”, and “Three legged Frogs”.  Worrying and obsessing more about animals, than humanity, and our need for Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Apparitions: ghosts or ghostlike images of a person

Ascended Masters: Elizabeth Clair Prophet’s group. Ascended masters are a group of spiritually enlightened beings, once mere mortals, who have undergone a process of spiritual transformation. According to these teachings, they remain attentive to the spiritual needs of humanity, and act as superintendents of its spiritual growth. In this, they can be compared to the Great White Brotherhood or Secret Chiefs who are posited by various magical organizations; and more remotely, to the bodhisattvas of Buddhism, or the saints of Catholic and Orthodox ‘Christianity’. The ascended masters include: the Virgin Mary, Muhammad, El Morya, Mahatma Kuthumi, and Djwhal Khul. Many of these are strong advocates of reincarnation.

Astral Projection: In astral projection the conscious mind leaves the physical body and moves into the astral body.

Bahaism: a religion founded in Iran in 1863; emphasizes the spiritual unity of all humankind; incorporates Christian and Islamic tenets

Biofeedback: as used in holistic health is a form of “electronic yoga”; a highly technical means of altering consciousness and inducing physic experiences.

Chiropracticas taught by D.D. Palmer who was a magnetic healer before he “discovered” the principles of Chiropractic. The following is a quote from his book The science, Art and Philosophy of Chiropractic: “We release the prisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet of force that emanates from the mind and flows over the nerves to the cells and stirs them to life. We deal with the manic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty, and hues and scents the flowers with the glory of the air. In the dim, dark, distant long ago, when the sun first bowed to the morning star, this power spoke and there was life, it quickened the slime of the sea and the dust of the earth and drove the cell to union with its fellows in countless living forms. Through eons of time it finned the fish and winged the bird and fanged the beast. Endlessly it worked, evolving its forms until it produced the crowning glory of them all. With tireless energy it blows the bubble of each individual life and then silently, relentlessly dissolves the form, and individual life into itself again. And you ask, can Chiropractic cure appendicitis or the flu? Have you more faith in a knife or a spoonful of medicine than “The Innate Power” that animates the internal living world?” Palmer was an occultist, a pantheist, and an evolutionist; The “Innate Power” Palmer refers to is the same occult power behind New Age metaphysics. Other names for this “innate power” are:

Conjuration: As an invocation, a conjuration is the act of summoning one or more spirits with a pre-determined purpose by means of a charm. This typically means that the conjurer will perform some ritual to call upon the spirit

A Course in Miracles: Subtle counterfeit of real thing because it is intermingled with scripture. Scary thing is that in some cases it will work because of scripture content. Written by a professor at Columbia University, Helen Schucman an atheist psychologist that received her entire concept by channeling divination.

Crystal Balls/8Ball: is used by fortune-tellers, clairvoyants, and diviners in the technique known as “skrying”. Gazing into the glass the diviner enters into a trance-like state claiming to see present and future events (crystallomancy).

Deepak Chopra: uses the practice ofMaharishi Ayurveda to contact the essence of the Hindu God Brahman and to experientially recreate oneself as God through occult practices.

Déjà vu: Those believing in reincarnation theorize that déjà vu is caused by fragments of past-life memories being jarred to the surface of the mind by familiar surroundings or people. Others theorize that the phenomenon is caused by astral projection, or out-of-body experiences (OBEs), where it is possible that individuals have visited places while in their astral bodies during sleep. The sensation may be also connected to the fulfillment of a condition as seen or felt in a premonition. Other possible explanations are clairvoyance and telepathy.

Divination: tarot, fortune telling, Teal leaf reading, handwriting analysis, palm reading, I Ching, Numerology, False prophecy; Divination is the attempt to foretell the future or discover occult knowledge by interpreting omens or by using paranormal or supernatural powers. (Deut 28:10-12)

Emiagrams: psychological profiles

False Prophets: Jean Dixon, Nostradamus; anyone acting the part of a divinely inspired prophet utters a falsehood. Acts 13:6; Zec 13:3

Familiar Spirits: ghost or spirit of a dead person (Lev 20:6)

Feminism, Goddess Worship and Wicca (female witches): With the rise of feminism and feminist theology, new traditions within Wicca were created in which the goddess grew in importance, and the role of the male god shrank into obscurity. In fact, goddess worshipers are basically creating an alternative to the Judeo-Christian religious tradition, rejecting its male Deity and replacing him with their female counterfeit or even themselves.

Feng shui: literally, means wind and water. It is an art of living in harmony with environment. Its practice involves locating auspicious landscapes and rivers, as well as placement and arrangement of furniture in a house. The objective in feng shui practice is to locate a house where there are auspicious chi (or dragon’s breath) in its surrounding and enable the auspicious chi to enter the house, primarily through its main door.

Fetishes, Power objects: First, a fetish involves the transfer of power from an original source onto a substitute. Second, a fetishist is someone who operates outside the circle of what is characteristically considered normal. (Yeah right, what is normal nowadays?)

Financial bondage to the occult

Fire Walking: Calling up a familiar spirit to form a reciprocal relationship between a person and the Saints; in return for belief and veneration, a Saint (familiar spirit) will grant protection.

The Forum, Life SpringThe similarities between Life Spring, Scientology and the Forum are remarkable. All involve dyads where partners share and confront, hoping to bring about an awareness of human potential. The human potential movement holds high the idea that each person has a spark of the divinity in them

Freemasons or Masons: At first it looks like typical ‘Christian’ setting, but as you go up the ladder to the various degrees, it gets more occultic. Finally when you’re near the top, you practice Satanism ” The Luciferian Doctrine”. They are a part of the New World Order. The name of the Masonic god, Jahbulon, is an amalgam of the names of three gods, the middle one of which represents Baal! (Ex 20:5; 1Kings 18:28-29) Many Presidents were practicing Freemasons So was Alister Crowley and Anton La Vey of “The Satanic Bible”, two of the most renown satanic worshipers. Theirs is 2 divisions: the York Rite and the Scottish Rite. For Women: Order of the “Eastern Star”, “Daughters of the Nile“, and “White Shrine“. For Youth: “De Molay“, “Job’s Daughters” and “Rainbow Girls“. These clubs are nothing but a breeding ground for satanic activities.

Geomancy: A system of divination that employs the scattering of pebbles, grains of sand, or seeds on the earth and then the interpretation of their shape and position. The occultist Agrippa developed a method of making marks on the earth with a stick, (currently the method is also used by making marks on paper with a pencil or pen) and then interpreting them.

Ghosts, spirits: haunted houses, fascination with the dead. Ghosts are not the people they represent, they are demons masquerading as spirits of the dead.

Halloween: The Celts and their priests, the Druids, from Great Britain and Ireland. They celebrated “SAMHAIN”. It was a festival that marked the eve of the Celtic New Year, which began on November 1. The fall harvest was complete and winter was looming ahead. The Celts believed the sun was fading away, at this time of the year. For the next several months, darkness prevailed. The Celts believed that during “Samhain” the veil separating life from death was at its thinnest. On the evening of October 31, the evil spirits and souls of the dead passed through the barrier and visited the world of the living. The Celts believed these spirits could cause all kind of havoc. They also believed that they could talk with the dead, departed loved ones and such. They also believed that they could divine the future. The powers of darkness were conjured up on “Samhain”. The Devil himself would be called upon to foretell of future events.

The origin of ‘trick or treat’: The Celts tried to appease the evil spirits; ghosts, goblins, and demons. Huge “Samhain” bonfires were built to light the way for all the spirits to find their way into the world of the living. They would leave out food, hoping that this would please the spirit world. If they did not leave a thing, then hence, the spirits would play evil “tricks” on the living in that house. The Druids required human sacrifices, they would go door to door asking for the virgin daughters. If this was not attained at the chosen homes, then a hexagram was painted on the door in blood to show the appointed evil spirits to cause all kinds of evil to fall on the home. In some cases, even resulting in death.

Origin of ‘Jack O’ Lantern: When the Druids went door to door, requiring the human sacrifice and it was given over, the Druids would leave a turnip carved out to resemble that of an evil spirit. The turnip would be lit up with a candle usually made from human fat. This they would put at the door posts of the homes that gave the “Treats”. They thought the evil spirits would then “pass over” the house.

The black cat: they believed had special powers. To them they believed the black cat represented incarnated humans, malevolent spirits, or the “familiars” of witches.

The origin of the “costumes”: The Celts and Druids believed that by wearing masks and costumes, they would confuse the spirits into thinking they were one of them. Therefore the evil spirits would leave them alone. They would wear these while dancing around the big Samhain ‘bonfires’. Also it is believed that they thought by wearing the costumes they could communicate with the spirits. Deut 18:9-11; “When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not imitate the detestable ways of the nations there, let no one be found among you who… practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.”

Hare Krishna’s: Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (1486–1533). He taught that the Hindu god Krishna is the supreme personal God. The movement practices an ascetic lifestyle, vegetarianism, and devotion to the Hindu god Krishna as a means of attaining spiritual enlightenment, particularly through the practice of chanting the mantra Hare Krishna [O Lord Krishna].

Harry Potter

Healing Visualization

Heavy Metal Music: occultic; especially with satanic overtones, heavy metal rock bands and paraphernalia; posters, jewelery, skull and crossbones, degrading of women in the music, suicidal, violent behaviour, etc…

Herbal Products: Many people will take very large quantities of expensive herbs out of fear. You may need 500mg of vitamin C a day but you take 10,000mg – and you’ve just entered into pharmakeia. One of the fruits of the spirit is temperance. The devil has people spending billions in their fear of disease. It is error to believe that just because it is natural, it is O.K. to take. Cocaine, marijuana, tobacco, opium, and magic mushrooms are all natural, addictive and very dangerous. So moderation and knowledge is required. Concerning food itself there is nothing evil in itself but all things are profitable if taken with thanksgiving… Means food is sanctified by the Word of God.

Hinduism: looking inward for god by means of an altered state of consciousness. During a mystical state the amygdala is shut down, the part of the brain that places you in space is shut down giving you the feeling of being without boundaries and one with universal energy. Newsweek 05/07/01 Hinduism requires your mind to go blank whereas God never bypasses your mind…He works through you.

Homeopathy: founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who concluded that like cures like; the best remedy for a disorder is a substance that causes the same symptoms in a healthy person. The medicine is diluted to infinitesimal concentrations and the potency of the substance is said to be maintained or enhanced by vigorous shaking at each step of the dilution. To find the herb for the original tincture of the preparation, the researcher turns to occult practices including a pendulum or spirit mediums.

Human Potential Movement: See New Age

Hypnotism: appears as if familiar spirits were there during these people’s lifetimes to give a somewhat accurate reading, convincing those involved. It has been used for thousands of years by witchdoctors, and shaman spirit mediums alike. Hypnosis has always been a powerful tool of the occult. Anytime we interfere and change the normal brain pattern we bring ourselves into an altered state of consciousness, and if radical enough, in touch with the spiritual realm. The operator develops his power of hypnosis through the practice of crystal gazing and pranayama.

Idolatry, idol worship: of three dimensional objects anything that is a graven image, Mary and other Catholic statues, Buddha, Diana, Angels, Mercury, Venus, carvings of spirits, anything of worship, can even be a large collection of the same items: nicknacs, stuffed animals, sports memorabilia, Movie stars, Musicians, athletes, Gurus etc…Self-motivational seminars, tapes videos, T.V., focus on money, etc. Anything that takes your focus away from God.

You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.  You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God. Ex 20:4-5                

Incense: The carvings of the tombs and temples of Egypt represent kings offering homage to the gods by burning incense in censers much like those used in our Catholic churches at the present day. Incense was a part of ancient Biblical sacrifices to God. Sacrifices and incense offerings are not taught in the New Testament as their use ceased with the new work of Jesus Christ. New Age incense sticks or cones can invite spirits in your home. The Eastern religions burn incense to their gods and idols.

The Inner Peace Movement: founded by Francisco Coll, is a worldwide organization that professes to teach psychic awareness — clairvoyance, clairaudience, prescience and psychic healing. Through a spirit guide, they learn astral travel and communication with other souls.

Iridology: Founded by Dr. Ignaz Von Peczely who broke the leg of his own pet as a child and noted the change in the bird’s iris. Iridology teaches that the iris of the eye is a map of the body and that every disease and affliction, past, present and future is displayed there. It is a form of divination such as palmistry.

Jewelry: peace signs, yin and yang, pentagram, baphomet, all Masonic, Egyptian: all seeing eye, ankh, sun, crescent moon and star, hexagram, crystals, hemp, crucifixes, rosary beads and mala beads used for their repetitious prayers: Catholic, Hindu and Muslim. Skull and crossbones, Italian horn, dream catchers.

Jezebel / Ahab Spirits: Control and manipulation, Matriarchal Witchcraft

Jungian Psychology: see Part I

KKK/ Racism: White, racist hates movement. Claims to be Christian, but is outside of Christianity

Labyrinths and Mazes: represent a journey to one’s own center and back again out into the world. The spiral is the path of consciousness – the Phi Ratio – the Fibonacci Spiral of consciousness that forms the architectural constructs and blueprints of our reality through the patterns of Sacred Geometry. A labyrinth is an archetype (Jung’s name for unclean spirit) with which we can have a direct experience. It is a symbol that creates a sacred space and place and takes us out of our ego to our collective unconsciousness. New Age users say one is guided back out of the maze by a spirit guide, Ariadne; the way out symbolizes purgatory and resurrection. The designs change according to the desired holistic experience; centeredness, confusion, harmonic proportion, alternance of energy. The labyrinth can be experienced as the birthing womb of the Great Goddess thus achieving reincarnation and eternal life. According to Greek Mythology the labyrinth was built as a cage for the Minotaur where he received 14 children every nine years as food.

Light as a feather game: it is when a person of choice lays down, the others place 2 fingers under the person while chanting; “light as a feather” until the person miraculously is lifted as if weightless.

Magic; White / Black / Stage Magic: Magic is synonymous with sorcery and, as used here, is to be distinguished from mere sleight-of-hand. In some occultic circles, it is frequently spelled “magick” to distinguish it from sleight-of-hand.

Martial Arts: In China open hand fighting is called Kung Fu or Daeji-Chon; in India Selambam; in France Savate; in Japan, Judo, Karate or Ai Kido or Jujitsu; in Russia Samba; In Malaysia Bosilat; in Thailand Kick Boxing; and in Korea it is known as Tae KyonSoo-Bak-Gi, and Taekwon-Do. The original training for these “arts” was intended to free people from all conscious control and thus permit them to attain enlightenment while at the same time, supplementing their daily exercise was Shih Pa Lo-Han (18 movements of Lo-han hands), which imitated the posture of the 18 different temple idols of Buddhism.

Mediums: Edgar Cayce, Arthur Ford,, JZ Knight, Swedenborg, Jane Roberts etc; mediums claim to be in contact with the spirits of the dead and to communicate between the dead and the living.

Metaphysics: A philosophy (belief) that is concerned with the fundamental nature of reality (truth) and being (life). All is One: Everything is a part of everything else; I am a part of you; you are a part of a peach, which is part of a dog, and the dog is a part of me. Man is a divine being: our innermost self is divine or God. The purpose of life is to become aware of our divine nature: we are all emanations of one reality, so there is no need for forgiveness or salvation. We only need enlightenment to understand our own divinity. Enlightenment leads to the exercise of “psycho spiritual” power: as we realize the reality that exists beyond our five senses, manipulations of the spiritual and physical world are possible by controlling one’s consciousness.

Mind Idolatry

Mind Dynamics: Alexander Everett the founder, states that Mind Dynamics grew out of the various paths of spiritual and personal growth that he had been exploring since leaving England. He lists, as the primary influences, Edgar Caye’s work (with Mediums), Theosophy, Rosicrucianism, Egyptology, Silva Mind Control, and of course, Unity.

Movies: Alien, Ghost, Exorcist, The Omen, and Psycho, Etc. These kinds of movies can be addicting, they can open the door to demonization and to entertain thoughts of murder and mutilation. They can lead to a fascination of the occult. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  2Tim 1:7

Moxibustion: moxa is applied over the vital energy (KI) condensation points in the body energetic meridians. Uses the acupuncture points to access this energy

Necromancy: divination by means of pretended communication with thedead; Cost Saul his life in 1Chron 10:13, 1Sam 28; communicating with dead saints; Deut 18:11, 28:10; Is 8:19. Currently practiced by popular evangelist Benny Hinn who visits the grave of and has appearances of his mentor Katheryn Kuhlman.

NLP: Neuro-linguistic programming; Anthony Robbins; A New Age system of self-hypnosis to alter memory and change behaviour.

New Age: striving for one world religion. The term “new age” is copyrighted by the Masons. Embracing other beliefs brings the curse. Agenda is to demote Jesus – He is a role model, an enlightener a good teacher – make Him anything but God. New age is repackaged Hinduism. Believes in a universal, impersonal, pantheistic god. Based on Mythology and encompasses a variety of religious beliefs and practices. No good or evil, no right or wrong. All life is an illusion referred to as Maya. The goal is to turn inward to discover one’s true nature using an altered state of consciousness to experience union with god. This altered state of consciousness empties the mind and opens the door to evil spirits, whereas God never bypasses the mind. We don’t have to become like zombies to experience an intelligent creator. Offers karma as man’s way to escape judgment It is a selfish culture, you are gods, and it is all about you so it is easy for people to buy into. Popular symbols – Unicorns, Rainbows, Hippie memorabilia etc

Numerology: interpreting the numbers; New Age, the numerical value in the alphabet interpretation of people, places and things.

Two people usually sit facing opposite sides and place fingertips on the oracle, made of plastic or wood and a glass with a needle in the middle. The people ask the board a series of questions, the board will respond yes or no, or spell it out. Beware, this game eventually leads to possession.

Palm Reading: is based in apparent scientific data, the lines and mounts on the palm; but as divination, to read the future. Probably the oldest and most sophisticated method of divination.

Parapsychology: an international professional organization of scientists and scholars engaged in the study of ‘psi’’ (or ‘psychic’) experiences, such as telepathy, clairvoyance, psycho telekinesis, psychic healing, and precognition 

Pilates: By utilizing his background in gymnastics, yoga, and injury rehabilitation, Pilates formed what he believed to be the perfect exercise regimen, “incorporating . . . the Eastern emphasis on controlled breathing, controlled movements, and highly focused attention, and the more Western use of resistance.” The Pilates system mixed with yoga is done on a mat or an apparatus. There is now three dimensional balancing being taught from the Chakra, Hara, or Dan Tien centering system now, as originally taught by Joseph H. Pilates. The kundalini process requires space (within the body) and movement (outside the body) on a metaphysical level of consciousness producing a balancing effect. Bodywork unblocks the vital force in the body, moving stagnant energy in the chakras, hands and feet. The identification of resistance and the channeling of emotional energy are supposed to bring balance to the spirit. Physical and psychic touch supposedly awakens the body and releases the mind into vibrational sensations.

Poltergeists: a German word that means noisy spirit. They tend to function in cycles and are prone to be violent in nature.

Personality Profiles: Categorize us according to our sin natures so that our identity is according to sin rather than according to the image of God. You may be introvert, extrovert, an animal or left side, right side, and type A or type “F”. That is binding a person to something that is evil and calling it good. The use of the different love languages may also bind us into our selfish personalities.

Mammon worship/ Prosperity Movement:

1Ti 6:5Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
1Ti 6:6But godliness with contentment is great gain.

Psychic reading/ Psychic Portraits

Rebirthing: is an American form of prana yoga that is closest to Kriya Yoga. It may be called scientific breathing rhythm or spiritual breathing. Its purported goal is to resolve repressed attitudes and emotions that supposedly originated with prenatal and perinatal experiences. Practitioners, called “rebirthers,” encourage patients to re-enact the birth process.

Reincarnation / Past Life Regression: a succession of lives. In its basic concept, it had its origin in India sometime near 800 B.C. Reincarnation is vital to classical Buddhism and Hinduism. Although reincarnation has ancient roots, its more modern, popular versions are modifications of the ancient, eastern beliefs of Hinduism. In the original forms of reincarnation, it was believed that souls transform from life to life in never-ending cycles. It was believed that it was even possible to reincarnate into the form of an animal or plant.

Science Fiction: Star Trek, Star Wars, UFO’s, Aliens, The Force; the founder of Science fiction, H.G. Wells was contemporary with Darwin. From Newton, Science Fiction gains a sense of mechanistic determinism; from Darwin (the greatest single force operative upon it) it gains a sense of biological determinism and the inclusive metaphor of the lawless jungle which it has used perhaps more often than any other; from Marx it gains a view of history as a battleground of vast economic and social forces; from Freud it gains a view of the determinism of the inner and subconscious self; from Taine it gains a view of literature as a product of deterministic forces; from Comte it gains of view of social and environmental determinism. . . .”

Scientology: founded in 1952 to science fiction author Ron Hubbard. It reflects Hindu Karma, Freud, Jung, psychotherapy, and Buddhism teachings. Hubbard’s space opera teaching includes extra terrestrial civilizations, alien interventions on earth, Xenu – past lives on other planets and traumas of past lives.

Sorcery / Pharmakea

Stonehenge: Metaphysics adherents saywe see the heavens as a place of creational forces – the gods and goddesses of our reality who one day returns to show us the way home.

People travel there trying to recreate ancient ceremonial rites that allow for healing.

Strange Fire: unbiblical doctrines, teaching, signs and wonders of the counterfeit revival movement sweeping the Christian church from 1948 Latter Rain Movement to present. Very charismatic leaders satisfy their audience’s desire for a sign manifestation thought to be a blessing of the Holy Spirit, which can only be passed on by ministry by these certain “prophets and apostles” of the church. These manifestations occur regardless of the individual’s beliefs and desire for personal consecration and holiness. These manifestations may originate from one or more of the following: Kundalini Yoga, Qigong, Sathya Sai, Subud, or Shakers. (Lev 10:1, 20:6; Ex 30:9; Deut 13:1­­-4; Jer 5:31; 32:35, 44:19, 51:38­­­-40; Deut 4:2; Deut 17:3; Is 8:16­20; Mat 16:4, 24:5; Acts 19:13; 1Cor 14:15, 32; Titus 2:1; 1Thes 5:19­-­22; 2Thes 2:9-­10; 1Tim 4:1; 2Tim 3:12­-­4:4)

Taoism: is centered on the importance of process and change, the concept that nature and the universe flow in an endless course of continuous cycles. Taoism urges humans who are seen as utterly dependent on nature to live in harmony with these cycles and become “one” with Tao.

Telekinesis: is essentially the ability to move an object on the physical plane using only psychic power.

Therapeutic Touch: founded by Dolores Kreiger R.N., who expanded on her training as a psychic and a student of Hindu medicine, Chinese medicine and Yoga, by experimenting with the transfer of human energies. She concluded that Prana is “at the base of the human energy transfer in the healing act.” Krieger clearly teaches that Eastern mysticism and the transfer of Prana from one person to another is the basis for therapeutic touch.

Sometimes they carry around plastic dolls that look like little vampires too. They play a  ‘role playing’ game called: “The Game”. They love “Marilyn Manson”, who is a practicing Satanist, and very explicit at his concerts.

The Way International: Combines teachings from the BibleChristian Scientists, and spiritists. Dwindled in size due to homosexual infiltration.

Transcendental Meditation: a set of Hindu meditation techniques introduced to the Western world by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. TM is said to bring the practitioner to a special state of consciousness often characterized as “enlightenment” or “bliss.” The method involves entertaining a mantra, an allegedly special expression that is often nothing more than the name of a Hindu god. Disciples pay hundreds of dollars for their mantras.

Unification Church / Moonies: a mind-boggling mixture of Pentecostal ChristianityEastern mysticism, anti-Communism, pop psychology, and metaphysics. According to Moon, it was God’s plan for Jesus to find a perfect mate and produce sinless children, bringing about the world’s physical and spiritual salvation. But they say that Jesus failed because He couldn’t get the Jews to accept Him as Messiah. The Crucifixion was a “mistake” which thwarted God’s plans and made it necessary for a new Messiah to come during this present age. This new “messiah,” called the “Lord of the Second Advent” by Moon, was born in Korea in 1920 (which, coincidentally, is the place and time of his own birth). In Korea, Moon involved his congregation in an unusual ritual known as “blood separation,” during which female members of the church were required to have sex with him to cleanse themselves of Satan’s influence.

Urantia: The Founder is a noted Chicago physician and psychiatrist Dr. Bill Sadler. The Urantia Book was delivered to him by seven spirit beings in 1934. Their goal and message is to unify all religions and have them abandon their particular teachings for another spiritual unity. They are quoted as saying, “We believe in every church and in all forms of worship.”

Voodoo / Vodun: is a theistic and magical form of animism that developed among West African tribes predating historical times

Warlocks: (another name for wizards) are, among historic Christian traditions, said to be the male equivalent of witches (usually in the pejorative sense of Europe‘s Middle Ages), and were said to ride pitchforks instead of broomsticks

Water witching: divining or dowsing or witching for water is practiced all over the world and despite scientific ridicule, water witches still flourish today

Witchcraft; divinationSpells, charms and incantations: “White Witches” usually named for doing good. “Black Witches” usually deemed for doing evil. All witchcraft, sorcery and divination is the same and strictly forbidden by God. De18: 10-12

Yin and Yang: are the two fundamental forces in Taoism, which generate all the transformation in the universe. Yin and Yang mean “the shady and sunny sides of the hill.” Taoism teaches that all events in nature and in human lives are influenced by the ever-changing interplay of these forces.

Yoga: taught to awaken the serpent spirit guide Kundalini from the base of the spine until it takes over your mind. Involves ungodly meditation that removes all thoughts to open you up to impressions from another kingdom. (This modality is disguised in the North American church as Sacred Spaces so it will be accepted by even the “very elect”). God can’t teach in a mindless state – faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. So how can you be in faith and mindless? Yoga is a basic means of achieving an altered state of consciousness. That altered state is evidence of an unclean spirit. This is Hinduism’s method of evangelizing the western world. It cannot be Christianized again as spirits travel by association with their modality.
