Doctrines Of Demons Part I
DOCTRINES OF DEMONS PART I
Now the Spirit expressly says (clearly and precisely) that in latter times (the last days) some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines (teachings) of demons. I Timothy 4:1
Jesus warned of false prophets, Paul warned the churches of false teaching, the traditions of men and those who perverted the gospel of Jesus Christ. Today we have literally hundreds, if not thousands of denominations, sects, cults and false religions all competing for your devotion.
Contrary to popular belief there is one gospel, the "Good News" of the Lord Jesus Christ, the only One to give His life as a sacrifice for our sins! The gospel is not complicated, it is simple, concise and to the point and it consists of three basic component parts: repent, believe and follow. Jesus never led anyone in a prayer, nor did Paul, Peter or any of the disciples, they all preached the same thing, although many tried to pervert, distort and change the truth they were sharing.
It is a known fact that the Bible is the most divisive book in the world in the hands of the unbeliever, or deceived person led by demonic influence, possessed by religious spirits and blinded to the truth of God's inspired word! To discern the Word's revealed knowledge one must be born again, thereby receiving the "Light" of the Spirit illuminating our spirit with the life of the Lord Jesus Christ!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1-5
BORN FROM ABOVE
Jesus said, "Unless one is born again (born from above) he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3
The first message Jesus preached when He began His ministry was repentance from a sinful life and for men to become born again new creations in Him! This is where many of the demonic teachings begin when one comes to the Lord and doesn't have a strong support group of believers around him he is bombarded by false teaching and with the advent of the Internet it has only grown worse!
When Nicodemus came to Jesus acknowledging Him as a teacher, He responded by telling him he must be born again to see the kingdom. Nicodemus being a leader of the Jewish religion didn't understand how he could be born twice but Jesus explained that he must be born of water, and be born of the Spirit in order to receive eternal life. When we experience this supernatural metamorphosis we are transferred from the world of flesh into the realm of the Spirit thereby giving us divine discernment and the ability to see spiritual things!
We as believers should take a stand against false prophets, false teachers and charlatans who have entered the true church of Jesus Christ and rebuke them and run them out, just as the apostle Paul exhorted the New Testament churches to do because they poison new believers with dangerous teachings and doctrines of demons! Do you want your ears tickled, or do you want to know the truth that is able to set the captives free?
But the natural man (fleshly, carnal) does not receive things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, nor can he know them because they are spiritually discerned. I Corinthians 2:14
SOLID ROCK OR SINKING SAND?
"Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock." Matthew 7:24
The key to allow one to remain free from doctrines and the teachings of demons and the traditions of men is a firm foundation and knowledge of the word of God. Sadly, today in our liberal culture the word of God and the teaching of truth has been greatly diminished from the pulpits of America, allowing
the entrance of "Pillow Prophets," false teachers, and a multitude of men and women who pervert the gospel and tickle the ears of those who "ooh and ah" over their sugar coated sermons.
The result of this demonic diatribe is a brood of lazy deceived church goers, completely devoid of any truth that is able to set them free and save them! The church in America has spread this poison around the world polluting other countries with a false and perverse gospel that has no power to transform or convict sinners and as the apostle Paul told the Galatian church, "Let them be accursed!" Health, wealth and prosperity have replaced repentance and death to self with a gospel of ease and entertainment where millions attend to see magic, Yoga, rock bands and any other form of Eastern religion, some even joining up with Islam, a demonically inspired religion of death and deception!
The truth will set you free but the false teaching of greedy men will only open your spirit to demonic possession, which in turn will lead to misery, torment and even death. If you have involved yourself in anything opposed to the teachings of Jesus Christ, then come out and be separate says the Lord and shake off the bonds of deception and spiritual death that feeds on the doctrines of demons!
"Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: "He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. "But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth (sand) without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. (collapsed) And the ruin of that house was great." Luke 6:47-49
