1.“Man’s body, which is matter, is therefore evil.It is to be contrasted with God, who is wholly spirit and therefore good.
2.Salvation is the escape from the body, achieved not by faith in Christ but by special knowledge (the Greek word for “knowledge” is gnosis, hence Gnosticism)”.
3.“Christ’s true humanity was denied in two ways:(1) Some said that Christ only seemed to have a body, a view called Docetism, from the Greek dokeo (“to seem”), and (2) others said that the divine Christ joined the man Jesus at baptism and left him before he died, a view called Cerinthianism, after its most prominent spokesman, Cerinthus.This view is the background of much of I John (see 1:1; 2:22; 4:2-3)”.
4.“Since the body was considered evil, it was to be treated harshly.This ascetic form of Gnosticism is the background of part of the letter to the Colossians (2:21-23)”.
5.“Paradoxically, this dualism also led to licentiousness.The reasoning was that, since matter (flesh) – and not breaking of God law (I John 3:4) – was considered evil, breaking his law was of no moral consequence”.
“The Gnosticism addressed in the New Testament was an early form of the heresy, not the intricately developed system of the second and third centuries.In addition to that seen in Colossians and in John’s letters, acquaintance with early Gnosticism is reflected in 1, 2 Timothy, Titus, and 2 Peter and perhaps I Corinthians”.Gnosticism is head knowledge, not heart knowledge (faith).The meaning of Gnosticism sounds exactly like the teachings of false eastern religions of today.A form of mind over matter – matter being man’s body.In false eastern religion some of the leaders refer to themselves as guru’s and believe that they are Christ reincarnated.These leaders who believe they are Christ reincarnated believe that Jesus and the Christ are not one in the same, but are two different people, or beings.They believe that Jesus is not the Christ.WHICH IS AN ABSOLUTE LIE OF SATAN!I John 2:22: Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.Those who teach this lie believe the Christ (and not the Holy Spirit) entered Jesus at his baptism, leaving him just prior to his death, and even now continues to indwell others who are the supposed chosen ones.The Bible warns us about these false Christs!Mark 13:22-23:For falseChrists and false prophets shall rise, and shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.But take ye heed:behold, I have foretold you all things.This should prove that following Gnosticism, false eastern religion, or any other false teaching/religion, will lead to a person’s spiritual and physical destruction.Their physical destruction can include self-inflicted abuse and self-torture.I have found that some people who have practiced false eastern religions; which include yoga and meditation (a form of mind over matter), or those whose ancestors have practiced false eastern religion, are prone to cutting and other methods of self-torture.I Kings 18:28:And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.(They were cutting themselves in this scripture as part of a ritual to their false god Baal!)A person could even be cutting them self because they have opened a door in their life due to their false religious décor.If you have practiced sadomasochism, cutting or any other form of self-mutilation and torture; or have ancestors who have, please say the prayers at the end of this document.Very important, also throw out any false religious décor – including the so-called Christian religious décor.Through prayer you can stop it in its tracks, in your generation and your future generations.
Some of our young people are participating in body piercing and other methods of self-torture.They are being introduced to a ritualistic method of self-torture which is intended to induce an out of body experience.Certain tribes used this same method as part of their ritual beliefs and practices.Today our young people are using self-torture to try and achieve some sort of spiritual experience, not realizing that Satan is the one behind the experience.In an effort to separate themselves from their own body they are hanging from meat hooks until the pain becomes so excruciating it actually causes them to spiritually separate from their body and all knowledge of their pain (a form of mind over matter).It is very sad when our children are facing so much emotional pain that they would turn to self-torture as a means of trying to rise above it.They are turning to everything but God; yet many sit idle as Satan destroys them.A man interviewed on television made it his mission to show as many young people as he could how to do this ritual.He said that he wanted to show them (as he put it) the right way to do it so they would not cause any permanent damage to their body.Oh God, please help our young people!There are even websites promoting this, and other methods of self-torture, instructing people how to do it.Parents, we had better wake up!Our young people are living in a very dangerous time and we are leaving them to face it Spiritually unprepared.We have got to tell them that Jesus Christ bled and died for them – so that they do not have to!
If either you or your ancestors have been involved in any ‘un-Godly practices or organizations’; or if your family has a history of divorce, depression, anorexia, bulimia, gluttony, suicide, cutting/self-torture, sadomasochism, alcoholism, drug addiction, anger, control, jealousy, pornography, stealing, poverty, lying, fear, witchcraft, stubbornness, rebellion, etc.; or if they have practiced any form of martial arts, yoga, eastern meditation, etc. please pray the following prayers (saying whatever the Lord may lay on your heart when you get to the blanks below).You may also say the following prayer for your spouse (or ex-spouse’s) family to cover the bloodline of your children with prayer:
I proclaim before Heaven that I am a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ my Risen Savior.Father God, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I confess to you my sin(s) and the iniquity of my ancestors for _________ _________ _________.Not only have I confessed my sins, but the sins (iniquities) of my forefathers. Nehemiah 9:2:And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.By doing the things they did they have (knowingly or unknowingly) allowed, and invited, evil visitation into my life.I ask you to forgive me for anything I may have done to reinforce this evil visitation.Forgive me for any way that I have (knowingly or unknowingly) re-connected this generational chain of sin in my life.Please destroy this evil chain of sin from my life, and I will remove any unclean objects or décor from my home.I acknowledge these things as sin, and I ask you to separate me from all evil visitations which I have allowed or invited into my life (due to my own sinful actions and/or unclean objects of décor).In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and because of the Blood He shed for me, I command any and all evil spirits to leave me and my family.I destroy every evil assignment against us in the name of Jesus Christ closing every evil door that has been opened in our life through sins, evil dedications, and/or decorations.I ask you to cleanse me, and my family, with the shed Blood of Jesus Christ – and to remove every evil door.From this day forward I receive only generational blessings in my life and my family.In Jesus’ name.Amen!
If either you, or your ancestors, have been involved in (or have given money to) any organizations (i.e. witchcraft, freemasons, Roman Catholicism, etc.) which practice or participate in ritualistic blood worship please say the following prayer (also please say this prayer if you have had, or performed an abortion):
If you have not been involved in these organizations, or participated in an abortion, but have an ancestor who has please say this prayer.Or, if your spouse’s family participated in these things please say the following prayer and cover your children.
I proclaim before Heaven that I am a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. I accept Jesus as my one and only Savior – and you God do I serve. Matthew 4:10 and Luke 4:8: Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, THOU SHALT WORSHIP THE LORD THY GOD, AND HIM ONLY SHALT THOU SERVE. Right now in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth (and by the power of the Holy Spirit) and through the precious blood of Jesus I cancel and destroy every vow, pact, and promise that I have ever made to Satan. I repent for any shedding of blood either through impulse or ritual (of any kind), or for doing this to achieve any type of out of body experience. I also cancel and destroy any and all dedications made to Satan, especially if I or my kids were ever dedicated to him. I know because I have prayed this prayer that Satan will try and put a spirit of destruction on me and my family so in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I come against all evil spirits (and evil assignments) of destruction. I take authority over these evil assignments and cancel them in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Because of the Blood that Jesus shed for me on the cross, and because he is alive and sits at the right hand of God (even now) making intercession for me, all evil vows, pacts, and promises made to Satan (by either myself or my ancestors) are destroyed. I and my family belong to Jesus Christ! From this day forward I will serve Jesus. I will pray and study His Word (the Bible). Ephesians 6:10-18:Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.Hebrews 4:12:For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.James 4:7:Submit yourselves therefore to God.Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
