Satan and his evil spirits are the inspiration behind evil and negative thoughts, yet many Christians (including leaders) tell us that Satan is not responsible for the bad things we do.It seems as though many Christians are taking up for Satan, but I for one am not letting him off the hook that easy!Many Christians are in bondage to Satan’s devices and are not coming to the church for help because the church is not teaching the truth of God’s Word.Instead of turning to God many Christians are turning to psychiatrists (when most psychiatrists do not even believe in the Bible).Christians run to the doctor (first) before praying – or if they pray they do not wait on the Lord to give him time to answer their prayer.There is nothing wrong with going to a medical physician (because God did give them wisdom to help people); however, many Christians do not ask God (first) to heal them, or even believe that He can, but instead are fearfully running to a doctor.They are taking all kinds of medication and cannot even think clearly enough to read their Bible or to pray.They are oppressed by evil spirits and the psychiatrist has convinced them that they are either manic depressive, or bi-polar, etc; and puts them on a bunch of medication.The psychiatrist then tells them that certain areas of their mind are suffering from an imbalance and so they give them even more medication in an effort to balance it.Then they have to give them some other kind of medicine to stop the side affects that the first medicine caused – and so on and so on.For more on bi-polar see my document on the ‘connection between soul and spirit’.
Many people (including Christians) do not realize this but when evil spirits constantly bring bad thoughts to a person’s mind, and the person continually dwells on those negative thoughts, they are using that portion of their mind more than others.Many times the person’s ancestors even had the same problems that they are having, and so the doctors tell them that this is a sickness they have physically and emotionally inherited from their ancestors.In one sense this is true, however, the problems they are experiencing are just as much spiritual as physical.Their physical and emotional problems (manifestations) are due to a spiritually evil visitation – the same evil that visited their ancestors.They are being visited with the iniquity of their forefathers, and a lot of the time it is because they have brought something into their home, or have participated in something that has re-connected them to this generational pattern of iniquity after salvation.They are being visited by the same evil spirits that visited their ancestors, and like some of their forefathers, they have fallen for Satan’s evil deception. However, they do not have to inherit this evil visitation; they can be set free through Jesus Christ, and maintain their freedom by walking in and obeying His Word.Unknowingly, many times the visitations they are experiencing are because they have followed man’s traditions – instead of following God’s Word – and have brought spiritually evil doorways into their home.These evil doorways allow Satan and his evil spirits to torment their mind daily, causing them to constantly dwell on the bad things and not develop the areas of their mind through which God speaks to them.Philippians 4:8:Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.Some areas of a person’s mind (the areas that Satan affects through torment, fear, or fantasy) have had so much activity that other areas of their mind have shut down – areas of their mind that God, through His Word, told them to develop.Areas like peace, joy, faith, etc.Exercising the wrong area of the mind is the imbalance that develops, and medication will not renew the balance – but deliverance through God’s Word will!Ephesians 4:17-27:This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour:for we are members one of another.Be ye angry, and sin not:let not the sun go down upon your wrath:Neither give place to the devil.
Continually listening to Satan’s evil suggestions can, and will, cause some areas of a person’s mind to have less development than others.Which can even show up on a CAT scan, MRI, or X-ray.The Bible tells us (as Christians) to renew our mind with God’s Word – not with the world, or with Satan’s evil suggestions.It is time for us to clean Satan’s garbage out our Christian homes, and to start washing our mind with God’s Word.Before trusting in doctors, we need to first trust in God’s Word!Romans 12:2:And be not conformed to this world:but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.Ephesians 5:26:That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.
For one reason or another many people try and escape pain by trying to escape who they really are.Due to their emotional, mental, and physical denial they have become susceptible to evil spirits.Running from (or denying) their pain, instead of giving this deep pain to Jesus Christ, many are under the influence of these evil spirits and do not even realize it.They just know something is wrong!Note:If anyone reading this is already on medication please donot stop taking your medication, but pray.In time, God will help you to be set free from the medication and the problems that caused you to turn to the medicine in the first place.If you just suddenly stop taking the medicine you will hurt your body, because your system now has a chemical imbalance due to the medication and you will need to slowly be taken off of it.I would suggest that if you do not have a Christian doctor (one who turns to the Word instead of all the medication) you need to find one.Also very important, clean out your house!(I have a document of suggested ‘items to remove from our homes and churches’.)
It is important for us to know that just because a child, or an adult, thinks a bad thought it does not mean that this thought originated in their mind, its influence was directed by Satan.The thought does not become their own until they act it out!
See my document of ‘suggested list of things to remove from our homes and churches’ – you’ll find prayers that will help you in that document!
