Transferance of spirits

TODD BENTLEY Lakeland “Revivalist”


Most Contagious “anointing” Florida ~ (In other words, the most easily transferable).

Spirits are being imparted or transference of spirits (NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT).

The stage is being set to bring the Antichrist to power. Will this new Jesus deceive the
whole world? Is the Great Apostasy as prophesied in II Thessalonians 2, the end-time stage in
which the full powers and miraculous works of Satan’s Antichrist come to fullness?i

This book, Transference of Spirits, show how Satan transfers his demonic spirits to humans. The Bible
shows that the mind can be manipulated by supernatural forces. "But their minds were blinded: for until this day
remained, the same veil taken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ" (2 Jn.
6:14). These devils use deception to transfer spirits through the mind "Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (2
Jn. 11:14), appearing to men as a messenger of that which is good and wholesome to indicate that, truly, he comes
from God. http://patholliday.com/dlguard/cart/index.php?page=2&c=30

(1Sam. 15:23) ,“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou
hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. “

2
(2Chron. 33:6), “And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he
observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he
wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.”

(Gal. 5:20), “Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variances, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies.”

With discernment, with prophetic teachings, exhortations and warnings, Dr. Holliday came on the church
scene before the church was ready to listen to or believe her message . . . God's message . . . for this day and to His
people. Like the tribe of Issachar, who knew the times they were living in, we must also move into and operate in
that gift of DISCERNMENT. Our prayer is that the Church will wake up out of their slumber . . . "Arise O sleeper!
Awake!” (Jon. 1:6; Isa. 21:5; 60:1; Jer. 31:6; Song of Sol. 4:16; Eph. 5:14). ii

“Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power

and signs and lying wonders,”(2 Thess 2:9),

JESUS CHRIST OR SATAN

There are only two sources for supernatural power: Jesus Christ or Satan.

Derek Prince says that “Witchcraft is the universal, primeval religion of fallen humanity. When the
human race turned from God in rebellion, the power that moved in was witchcraft. As the Bible says,
“Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft” (1 Sam. 15:23). 1 Prince goes on to say, “There are four levels of Modern
Witchcraft. The Westernized, “modern” practice of witchcraft contains the same elements . . . 1 Open,
public. “Respectable” 2. Underground” - covens. 3. Fifth Column, disguised with society and the Church. 4. A
Work of the flesh.

PEOPLE AND SATAN

(2 Cor. 11:14-15), “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it
is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be
according to their works.”

WHO IS THE ANGEL THAT CREATES SIGNS AND WONDERS IN TODD BENTLEY’S MEETINGS?

(Rev 13:13-14,) “And he doeth great wonders , so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in
the sight of men, 14 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. . .”

Todd Bentley, the Lakeland “Revival,” New Age outpouring of angelic false signs and wonders, says
an angel called Emma leads his ministry. Who is the mysterious angel that is attached to this “revival,”?

3
1. EMMA-O: King of Hell. He lives the good life in a large castle covered in gold, silver, pearls and jewels . . .
Google EMMA ~ O
2. Galatians 1:8, "If we or an angel from heaven preaches any other Gospel unto you (than this Gospel
(Gospel of Jesus Christ) that he (Apostle Paul) had preached), let him be accursed."

3. ANGEL EMMA-0 is also known in Japanese Mythology as EMMA Hoo.


4. EMMA-0, The Lying demon that calls itself the angel that (it is claimed) ministered with Rev. William Branham,
the famous faith healer who fell into much error before he died. He believed that he was god.
Bentley claims that “Emma is a female angel that is a motherly type.” There is no scripture to prove that
God made female angels. Let me say, that real revivals do not move on the power of angels.

Jesus warned in (Jn. 10:10-15), “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am
come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd: the good
shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are
not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and know
my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life
for the sheep.”

JESUS

(Jn. 4:24), “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

(Jn. 14:6-7), “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way , the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and
have seen him.”

[I am the WAY] That leads to the Father: the TRUTH that teaches the knowledge of God, and directs in
the way:-the LIFE that animates all those who seek and serve him, and which is to be enjoyed eternally at the
end of the way,” (Jn. 14:6).

CHRIST IS THE WAY ~ THE TRUTH AND LIFE

1. By his doctrine, (Jn. 6:68).

2. By his example, (1 Pet. 2:21).

3. By his sacrifice, (Heb 9:8-9).

4. By his Spirit, (Jn. 16:13).

He is the WAY:

1. In opposition to all false religions

2. To the Mosaic law, this was only the shadow, not the truth or substance, of the good things which were to
come. And

3. In respect to all the promises of God, (2 Cor. 1:20).

He is the LIFE, both in grace and glory; the life that not only saves from death, but destroys it.

[No man cometh unto the Father] By any other doctrine, by any other merit, or by any other intercession
than mine. iii

Seeking power beyond the Word of God and Jesus Christ finds one stepping into the world of witchcraft.

ANOTHER GOSPEL, ANOTHER JESUS BY ANOTHER SPIRIT

(2 Cor. 11:4), “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus , whom we have not preached, or if ye receive
another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with
him.”

The Apostle Paul says, (2 Cor 11:4),

[For if he that cometh] the false apostle, who came after Paul had left Corinth.

[Preacheth another Jesus] Who cannot save more fully and more powerfully than that Jesus whom I have
preached.

[Or if ye receive another spirit] And if in consequence of believing in this new saviour ye receive another
spirit, the gifts, graces, and consolations of which are not greater than those which ye have received from the Holy
Spirit, which has been given to you on your believing on the Christ whom we preached.

[Or another Gospel] Containing more privileges, spiritual advantages, and stronger excitements to holiness,
than that which we have preached and which ye have accepted, ye might well bear with him. This would be a
sufficient reason why you should not only bear with him, but prefer him to me.

Others think that the last clause should be rendered, Ye might well bear with ME-notwithstanding he brought
you another Jesus, spirit, and gospel, ye might bear with me, who have already ministered so long to and done so
much for you. But the former sense seems best.

The Apostle John forewarns, ABeloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits, whether they are of God,
because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know we the Spirit of God, every spirit that
confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is
come in the flesh, is not of God and this is that spirit of antichrist whereof you have hear that it should come and
even now, already is in the world,@ (I Jn. 4).

Certainly, as we look at this text, we see that Christians should be discerning the times and seasons.
Numerous Believers provide understanding to the involvement of the occult, cults and bizarre Christian sects.
However they choose ignore the stunning fact that Satan is busily infiltrating many churches through
supernatural New Age methods. These bewitching seeds of seduction have been etching themselves into the
landscape of the American Christian Church for many years. The Church has ignored the subtlety of Satan tactics
because the discerning of Christian doctrines and ministers has not been at the forefront of Christian teaching
and preaching. The sideline of a great deal of preaching consists of teachings concerning materialism,
emotionalism and intellectualism and ministering under the powers of demonic fallen angels. When biblical
foundations are weakened, the church loses it purposes and becomes religious instead of being powerful and faithful
guardians of the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

CAUSES OF TRANSFERENCE OF SPIRITS

Laying on of hands
(Mk. 6:5), “And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and
healed them.”
(Acts 19:11), “And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul . . .

(Acts 19:13-16) 13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists , took upon them to call over them which
had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. 14 And
there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. 15 And the evil spirit

5
answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? 16 And the man in whom the evil spirit
was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house
naked and wounded.

1. Lust of the flesh.


2. Eye gate and ear gate.
3. Though the medium of words using mass hypnosis..
4. Witchcraft and idolatry.
5. False religions and cults
6. Music.
7. Mind Control
8. Living a sinful life.

MIND MANIPULATION

The Bible shows that the mind can be manipulated by supernatural forces. "But their minds were blinded: for
until this day remained ,the same veil taken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in
Christ," (2 Jn. 6:14).

These devils use deception to transfer spirits through the mind “Satan disguises himself as an "angel of light,"
(2 Jn. 11:14), appearing to men as a messenger of that which is good and wholesome to indicate that truly he comes
from God.

Satan uses false teachers too spread his lies capture souls.

CHARACTERISTICS OF A FALSE PROPHET

Profess to be believers.
1. Believe they are servants of righteousness because of the deception of spirits.
2. Act in the name of Jesus.
3. They preach another Jesus, another gospel. (Like Jim Jones did).
4. Can use the Bible as teachers or preachers. (using all the perverted Bibles)
5. Some may have large followings.
6. Will mislead many, (Matt. 24:11).
7. Word of God is subordinate to experience.

FALLING AWAY

The Apostle Paul warns of the spread of heresy from the Christian faith. The word Apostasy conveys the
particular idea of falling away, a withdrawal, a defection from the faith. Always remember you can’t fall away
from something that you’ve never had. Paul goes on to say in the scriptures that misrepresentation of the truth is a
primary avenue for the great end time falling away, “Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall not
come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,” (I Thess. 2:3).

Another avenue is following a strong erroneous belief or illusion. The Bible shows in (2 Thess. 2) the last days
that a spirit of “strong delusion” will overtake the whole world. Have you noticed that “another spirit, another
Jesus, another Gospel,” is being preached everywhere?

A man from Clearwater, Florida says that a number of people from his fellowship have attended the revival
and then brought the 'anointing' back with them. Here is what he personally saw: "These are the effects that I have
witnessed on people who have attended this movement and either have had hands laid on them or claim to have been
imparted with "the spirit": They come back with this kind of childlike drunken stupor.

MASS DEMONIZATION

6
I have films of deliverance sessions in Africa that look, sound and manifest exactly like these false revival
sensationalistic manifestations …the difference is this…In Africa, they call it demon possession and cast the demons
out! In America, they call it the “holy ghost” (it’s another Holy Ghost) and tell the people to take it back to their
churches in what, they call, “impartation”) I call it transference of spirits.

From an E mail that I received, "A friend of mine invited me to a church where the ministry team brought
back a "Fire" from the Lakeland revival… Descriptions of a burning sensation either in their veins, heads or
stomach.

 -Being washed back and forth like the waves in the ocean;
 Dancing about like drunk...
 Inappropriate yelling and screaming like they're at a football game;
 -Young men whistling over and over and holding their heads and claiming that they "feel the Holy Spirit
about to split them in two"; (could this be the splitting of their minds?)
 -One young man's back two teeth turned completely too some metallic finish.
 -People with their eyes rolled in the back of their heads and weaving around like they're lost. (I see this
manifestation in deliverance in Africa- it’s a death spirit).
 -Women just gyrating and pulsating like they're being ravaged from behind from some unseen force.
 -Drunken uncontrollable laughter in the middle of a solemn prayer time…
 -People being "slain in the spirit"... just falling down and being unable to move (like something's holding
them down)..." (Believe me, something is holding them down).

Another eyewitness from the USA writes:

The pastor's wife was moderating, but she could not complete her sentences because she was 'drunk in the
Spirit.' She imitated the type of sounds I read in your blog. (Dogs barking, hyena’s howling, cows mooing,
chicken’s clucking, etc).

 I saw people breaking out into uncontrollable laughter. I came with my Bible to receive a word…
 There was no teaching or preaching (no Bible). Just testimonies.
 They talked about their experience in Lakeland... Where was the word? I did not find any. I also heard a
sound BAM and then I saw someone being slain (or pushed) in the spirit."

ANGELS OR THE HOLY GHOST

7
A Spirit-filled pastor that I know from the UK who has been following Todd Bentley's ministry closely for
some years wrote to me about what he himself has observed since the year 2000:

"My difficulty with Todd Bentley's ministry is not whether he has recently covered himself with tattoos or pierced
himself silly, but the SOURCE of his power. He keeps changing his position on this.

Sometimes Bentley says it's the Holy Spirit and a lot of the time it's his angels…

"Many have said that they believe that Florida is a 'mixture'. Personally, I do not believe 'mixture' is involved. I
believe these deceiving spirits have hi-jacked Todd's ministry… Either the healings are of God or they are not.
Which is it?
People can be healed in spiritualist churches. I have witnessed, close-up, first hand, people being instantly
healed by mediums and faith healers. I have also seen people healed by the power of the Holy Spirit. To begin with
there is no discernible difference. However the counterfeit healings soon begin to either go wrong or something far
worse comes upon the person.
"When God heals someone - He adds 'no sorrow.' iv

BUT WE SEE SUPERNATURAL EXPERIENCES AND MIRACLES

Can Satan create miracles, signs and wonders? Yes!

(Rev 13:13-14), “And he doeth great wonders , so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in
the sight of men, 14 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.”

We should not follow after signs and wonders. We should follow Jesus and His Word and then signs
and wonders will follow.

FINDING SATANISM IN A CHRISTIAN CHURCH
Many Christians and others are prone to be skeptical about the existence of spirits and demons, but they do
exist and they are responsible to Satan for deceiving curious humans. Such is the case with the well-known
clergyman who was convinced that he was talking to his dead son! Evil spirits are openly marching into the
Christian Churches. Todd Bentley is leading a revival in the Christian Church that is being led by angels instead of
an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is said that 150 million Christians have become caught up involved with this
scripturally questionable movement. If it is not ordained by God, then the other spirit would be involved.

CAN CHRISTIANS BE DECIEVED? YOU BET

I have seen many people over the 33 years of my deliverance ministry that have been deceived.

A Christian couple came. The husband was a minister who had been drawn into New Age practices
by members of his congregation. His investigation led him into much mental confusion. He eventually was
placed in a mental institution. When he was released, he would call his wife to sit at his feet and prophesied,
under “the power of the Holy Spirit, “sometimes for eight hours. One day, the trailer flies filled the room.
The wife begins to pray and the flies disappeared. They searched the windows and doors for holes but they
could not find an entrance.

When I put my hand on her husband’s head to pray, a demonic spirit spoke through his lips saying,
“Don’t touch me. I’m am God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit and I hate your blank- blank
guts.”

Of course I knew this was a devil. I delivered him by the power of the Holy Ghost.

The author has witness many cases of witches infiltrating Christian churches over the thirty years as a
Christian. One Lady, (I’ll call her Tessie) was a member of the local coven. She gave testimony that the way she
was led into witchcraft was when she was a young girl. Her parents were attending a Baptist church. One night, after
service, a young man invited her to have pizza with him. Since this man was in our church, my parents agreed that I
could go with him. He asked me many times and one night he pulled me to him, kissed me, and told me that he
loved me.” She started dating this young man. (I’ll call him Jim).
“We started having sex. Then one night he told me that he was going to take me to meet some of his
friends. We stopped the car along the side of a warehouse. It looked vacant and very dark. However, when we went
inside, there were about five hundred people inside the building.
He took me by the hand and led me to a stage and took a microphone and said, “This is my new princess.” The
people all bowed and worshiped us!” (This is a true story, with the name changed). Needless to say, this event
called her into the coven where she is today. Thank God that he gave me spiritual eyes to see. Our church meeting
was the first one that she had been unsuccessful in infiltrating.”

Then another time, a mother brought her thirteen year old daughter to me because she was very rebellious.
The daughter confessed that her best friend claimed to be a witch. Jennifer had been born into Christianity. She said,
“My friend invited me to her home. She told me that she was a witch and that her mother was the Queen of the
coven. She told me, “Ma Ma sends us into the church to draw young people to our coven.”
Jennifer confessed that her friend proved that she was a witch by changing the color of her hair, green, also
changing the color of her eyes… making the furniture levitate… The witch gave Jennifer some black clothes and
black boots to take home. We ministered deliverance to Jennifer. Praying in the name of Jesus we threw away the
witches gifts and chased the demons out of her house.

I could fill a book with testimonies such as you see above… So, if you think you are safe just because you
go to a church, you’d better think again. Satan is very busy with his 5th column, working, destroying from within.
May God have mercy over us? So many are now totally blinded by the powers of darkness. Trust Jesus and His
Word, and seek His face in repentance and he will deliver and save you.

CHRISTIANS DABBLING IN THE OCCULT

9
Can a Christian be made subject to these occult powers? Many spiritual authorities believe they can when
they play around with the occult! Dabbling in the occult and even reading books on the black arts can bring much
spiritual, mental and spiritual distress. A Christian who might wish to learn more about this subject should only
consult books written by evangelical Bible scholars for their information.

The Bible says, “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: Ye cannot be partakers of the
Lord ’s Table and of the devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?” (I Cor. 10: 21,22).
Christians should never seek service, direction or healing from an occultist or psychic. When a Christian pursues
healing from these demons, they will be bewitched and guided by the devils. Many have discovered to their surprise
and horror that Satan is the one who is willing to divulge supernatural affairs and give them momentary assistance.
Often too late, they find that the real source of their advice and supernatural ability is demonic. Confusion results
and many end up going into insane asylums and never return! Occult powers come from Satan. When one uses
occult power he or she opens a door for the devil to enter into their spirit. Once the door is opened, very few victims
ever get it to shut again.

Christians should never look for guidance or healing from an occultist or psychic. Yes, if any Christian seeks
healing from these demons, they will be lured and lead by the devils. The author heard about a certain man whose
wife had lung cancer. A group from his church encouraged him to take to see a New Age faith healer. Another
Christian warned him that the occult healing that she was doing was being done by Satan. He said, “I don’t care if
she is hurling conch shells, I just want my wife to live. This man was serving on an international ministry board. His
wife died!

Many have found that it is Satan who is willingly reveals supernatural mysteries to them. The help that they
get in the beginning is not lasting. They fall into confounding confusion spiritually, physically and mentally
unstable. Satan is the real root for their counsel and the occult supernatural power is coming from the powers of
darkness. It is really demonic. They become bedeviled, unable to pray, read their Bible and uninterested in Christian
activity. Soon they drop away from Church. In fact many fall away from the faith of Jesus and never return. "Now
the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing
spirits, and doctrines of devils,” (1 Tim. 4:1).

It is truly hard for the person that has enter into Satan’s world of binding powers to find help to be released.

The Scriptures show, (Hos. 4:12b), " . . . for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err . . . ” Look at
the New Testament, (2 Jn. 4:4), "The god of this world has blinded the minds.

Scripture reveals, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is
come in the Flesh. This is a deceiver and an Antichrist," (2 Thess. 2:9).

The coming of the lawless one is according to Satan's working, with great power and signs and miracles, all
of them false, and the limitless DECEIT of wickedness for those who, because they did not welcome the love of
truth for their salvation, are going to destruction. And for this reason God visits them with a delusion that operates
on them to believe a falsehood, so that all who hath not believed the truth but have taken pleasure in wickedness
may be judged." (Rev. 12:9), “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which
deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

I. "Shall go out to deceive the nations,” (Rev. 20:8).


II. "The devil that deceiveth them," (Rev. 20:10).

Sin is the reason for the lack of peace in the mind of men and women. We cannot counsel the demons out
of their minds. We cannot change their lives with psychology. We must return to the basic of the Word of God.
Jesus Christ is Lord. We must depart from this global explosion of false religious peace of a strange, new,
universally accepted Jesus that is being introduced into the Christian Church, a “Jesus” who resides in Buddhist and
Shinto Temples and shrines. This is a “Jesus” who approves homosexuality, and never condemns. Texe Marrs says,
“it is the global explosion of religious blasphemy that has women dancing and mentally having sex with a dreamy

10
“Jesus.” Through the spiritual powers of this blasphemy, people are laughing hysterically in churches, barking like
dogs, roaring like lions and screaming like hyenas.”

This is the same continuation of the former counterfeit revival that has been raging for several years is now being
driven by a man that looks like a “Hell’s Angel.”

STEPPING STONES TO WITCHCRAFT

The American media have found a new horror story to promote. Full page advertisements and articles show
these powers as helpful, not harmful. A typical advertisement may read: "Whatever it is you need or want,
Witchcraft can get it for you quickly, easily, and automatically, say these experts. You'll discover how it can bring
abundant and overflowing wealth, find or bring back a lover, ward off evil influences, and much more . . . Step-by-
step in plain English, with complete easy-to-follow instructions!" Magazines and newspapers do not seem to realize
the terrible forces they are unleashing on the deceived individuals who will respond to the power of witchcraft.
Hundreds of thousands have become spiritual slaves. They are captives because of the media's spiritual blindness.
They don't see the psychics, for example, as dangerous influences on society.

A recent issue of Psychic Life Magazine carried articles on astral travel, reincarnation, psychic healing,
meditation, spirit guides and prayer to "Your God" - whoever he might be (and angels and talking to the dead).
Psychics are being used by police to help solve murders and give "valuable information" in other crimes. The use of
mediums or psychics by institutions and conservative law enforcement agencies is not new and, lately, it has become
commonplace. With society generally accepting the validity of ESP, the increase of psychic activity can be seen
everywhere.

There are occult means that people use with the intent of tapping into demonic wisdom. But the Bible warns
us that God condemns and forbids seeking after demonic wisdom. This is clearly expressed in (Deut. 18:9-12),
where we are told not to learn to imitate detestable demonic ways such as divination, sorcery, witchcraft,
channeling, necromancy, casting spells and more because they are said to be an abomination to the Lord.

There is a rise and social acceptance of the occult and witchcraft in America and in the church. We have
entered the supernatural age of progressive interest and involvement in the occult. Satan's ambassadors are very
successful and extremely evangelistic, capturing spiritual slaves. Also Witchcraft and Satanic worship, coupled with
human sacrifices is widespread and happening now!v

SHOCKED WORLD

When the world discovered Nancy Reagan, wife of President Reagan, was using an astrologer. Everyone
was shocked! Why? Americans had been sold on the reports that Ronald Reagan was Born Again and they probably
assumed that his wife was also a Christian.

What Is the Occult? Is it just for fun and games? Too often Christians and others are prone to be skeptical
about the existence of spirits and demons. But they do exist and they are directly responsible to Satan for deceiving
curious humans. Such is the case with the well-known Episcopalian clergyman, Bishop Pike, who was convinced
that he was talking to his dead son! Pike was found dead in cave in Israel, seeking paranormal activity.

HIDDEN KNOWLEDGE

The occult is defined as secretive-hidden knowledge or wisdom beyond human understanding. It could also
be described as supernatural perception from sources other than God. "The secret things (hidden knowledge) belong
to the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us," (Deut. 29:27).

A young girl says: "I was bored and unhappy. Then someone told me that I had telepathic powers. I became
fascinated with ESP, witchcraft, and the likes. It wasn't long until I was hooked. I wanted power. But when I got it, I
was terrified. I almost lost my mind before I found release through Jesus Christ."

11
If Jesus does not really occupy the highest place in our hearts, controlling all, something else does - millions
are now serving other gods. "For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous
God," (Exo. 34:14).

THE OCCULT IS RELIGIOUS ~ RELIGIOUS MINISTERS ARE DANGEROUS

The occult is very religious and many seeking it hope to find themselves, a reason for their being and to fill a
void in their soul. Instead, they will enter a door that very few are returning back through. Once ensnared by the
Devil, the person's mind, body and spirit is totally bound by the powers of darkness. The only way out is through the
grace of God and the Blood of Jesus Christ and deliverance! Once a devil has been invited in, he has to be kicked
out!

The modernistic occult movement is a do-it-yourself religion. People are looking for a power or force other
than the living God. They are seeking a supernatural experience that will require no change in their sin life. They
want supernatural adventure without spiritual responsibility. Others participate in the occult through curiosity and
knowing better. Even if a person does not know the demon power behind these activities and does not believe in
them, they are still and sinful and have supernatural results over their lives. There is no such thing as innocent
participation nor can you study occult materials to refute them.

Jesus instructed His Church, (Rev 3:18), “I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest
be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and
anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.”
