Are Christians being deceived in these last days by depending on Satanic methods of healing, while losing their walk with God in the process?Instead of depending on the healing power of God through His Word (His Son Jesus Christ), many Christians are running after false religious methods and practices. Jesus Christ still heals today, but even in church there are some people who are performing supernatural miracles that many Christians think is being done through the power of the Holy Spirit, but they are deceived.It is an evil seducing power that comes from the same supernatural source as the miracles that will be done in the book of Revelation under the power of Satan.Revelation 13:12-14:And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.This same power is even now deceiving many people through false doctrines, through cults of every kind, through Satanism, New-Age, and false Eastern Religion, etc.People are receiving physical healings that come from sources other than Jesus Christ (sources such as acupuncture, magnetic healing, etc), and because of their deep desire to be healed these people are not thinking of the spiritual consequences. See document for information concerning the false healing methods of ‘acupuncture and acupressure’.Matthew 16:26:For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?Save a life, but lose a soul in the process!Not to say that it is bad for a person to desire to be healed, but we must be careful by what means we are seeking to receive a healing, or miracle!Satan is the one who places sickness on us and he can surely remove it – giving the appearance of a healing.If you do not believe it is possible for Satan to heal then what about in Revelation where the beast will be healed of his deadly wound – God surely will not be the one responsible for that healing!Revelation 13:12:And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.People need to be careful of the healing methods they are trying, or in the end they may wind up in a worse condition, both physically and spiritually!Jesus Christ (the only Begotten Son of God) is our only true healer, and Jesus is the only way to God and His Holy Spirit.You cannot find God through false religious methods and practices. The same way you cannot get to God using a picture or statue of what is supposedly Jesus, or through any other religious imagery!Also see my document on ‘stigmata’.Many people are claiming healing through religious imagery and they become missionaries of encouragement bidding others to revere these supposed holy statues and images.Isaiah 42:8:I am the LORD:that is my name:and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
It is only through Jesus Christ (the real Jesus Christ) that true and lasting miracles can be received.Matthew 6:33: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.Jesus Christ can bring both healing and eternal life – Jesus Christ can save your life and save your soul/spirit.Remember, the greatest healing miracle of all is salvation through Jesus Christ of Nazareth (the true Messiah)!Acts 4:10, 12:Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.Neither is there salvation in any other:for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
If we, as Christians, are to experience God’s true miracles and His healing power we must stop chasing after signs and wonders, and start looking to Jesus Christ who is the true miracle maker!If you will notice in the following scripture it says that signs and wonder will follow those who believe.It does not say we are supposed to go chasing after them!Jesus speaking:Mark 16:17-18:And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Did you know that in New-Age and other false beliefs, which are Satan’s religions, they too believe in healing?They even give testimony of people being healed through their ritualistic methods.See my document of ‘suggested things to remove from our homes and churches’ for a list of ungodly and ritualistic methods and practices; it includes a prayer of deliverance and release from them. Though they may appear to be physically healed through their false methods, the difference is that through their Satanic (un-Godly) healing methods an evil spirit of infirmity is being exchanged for an evil spirit of deception.Though they appear to be physically healed their soul is in danger of being eternally lost!It is God’s will for us, as Christians, to be healed; but it is not His will for us to use Satanic methods of healing, and lose our soul in the process.Matthew 16:25-26:For whosoever will save his life shall lose it:and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?Satan has power to perform miracles, including as we saw in Revelation Chapter 13 the power to heal the beast.If God took away Satan’s power when He cast him out of heaven then who, or what, will be empowering the false prophet to performmiracles and deceive so many? II Thessalonians 2:9: Even him, whose coming is after the work of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. Revelation 16:14:For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.And why is Satan still referred to as the “prince of the power of the air”?Ephesians 2:2:Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.Satan is now, and will continue, deceiving many people with his power through the appearance of supernatural miracles and healings.It is God’s own people who must learn the truth of God’s Word and be wise to Satan’s devices!II Corinthians 2:11:Lest Satan should get an advantage of us:for we are not ignorant of his devices.
