The Meaning of Repent and Repentance - Must You Repent to be Saved?

There is a controversy among Christians as to whether it is necessary to repent in order to be saved - to become a born-again Christian. Some say you do not need to repent, you just need to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. They claim that repentance is a works-based doctrine.

Here are a few Bible verses that only mention having faith in, or believing in, Jesus Christ to get saved. Repentance is not mentioned at all:

John 3:16​

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Ephesians 2:8-9

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Romans 10:13

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Others say that you must repent; and what they mean by "repent" is that you must be sorry for your sins, confess them to God, ask for His forgiveness AND believe in Jesus Christ in order to get saved. They will cite several scripture that call for repentance. Here are three:

Matthew 4:17​

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Luke 13:5

I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Acts 3:19​

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

Are Christians Saved by Faith Alone or by Faith and Repentance?

First, What is the meaning of repentance? It is absolutely crucial to know the meaning of words if we are going to understand the Bible. Yet many people assume they know the meaning of certain words, when actually they don’t. The word repent or repentance is one of these cases.

We need to use a dictionary that accurately gives us the definitions of words in the King James Bible, because as time goes on many words change in meaning. We’ll use the Webster’s 1828 dictionary for the definitions of Repent and Repentance.

REPENT

1. To feel pain, sorrow or regret for something done or spoken; as, to repent that we have lost much time in idleness or sensual pleasure; to repent that we have injured or wounded the feelings of a friend. A person repents only of what he himself has done or said.
2. To express sorrow for something past.
3. To change the mind in consequence of the inconvenience or injury done by past conduct.
4. Applied to the Supreme Being, to change the course of providential dealings.
5. In theology, to sorrow or be pained for sin, as a violation of God's holy law, a dishonor to his character and government, and the foulest ingratitude to a Being of infinite benevolence.

REPENT'ANCE

1. Sorrow for any thing done or said; the pain or grief which a person experiences in consequence of the injury or inconvenience produced by his own conduct.
2. In theology, the pain, regret or affliction which a person feels on account of his past conduct, because it exposes him to punishment. This sorrow proceeding merely from the fear of punishment, is called legal repentance as being excited by the terrors of legal penalties, and it may exist without an amendment of life.
3. Real penitence; sorrow or deep contrition for sin, as an offense and dishonor to God, a violation of his holy law, and the basest ingratitude towards a Being of infinite benevolence. This is called evangelical repentance and is accompanied and followed by amendment of life.

Repentance is a change of mind, or a conversion from sin to God.

Repentance is the relinquishment of any practice, from conviction that it has offended God.

We also need to let the Bible define itself. The first time the word repent is used in the Bible is in Exodus 13:17. The use of the word here clearly shows that it means to have a change of mind. This verse says:

Do the Italicized Words Belong in the King James Bible?

According to critics of the King James Version of the Bible the italicized words were not inspired and therefore should be left out of the text. Italicized words were added by the King James translators for easier reading in English when a literal translation could not be rendered.

But if the italicized words are not the words of God then why are they quoted by Jesus and many of the apostles?

We will first read the Old Testament verse, and then we will read the New Testament verse that quotes the Old Testament's italicized words.

Note: The italicized words are in brackets

Moreover he said, I [am] the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. (Exodus 3:6)

I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. (Mat. 22:32)

And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every [word] that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live. (Deut. 8:3)

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Mat. 4:4)

Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out [the corn]. (Deu. 25:4)

For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? (I Cor. 9:9. Also see I Tim. 5:18​)

But the word [is] very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it. (Deu. 30:14)

But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; (Romans 10:8)

I have set the LORD always before me: because [he is] at my right hand, I shall not be moved. (Psalm 16:8)

For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: (Acts 2:25​)

I have said, Ye [are] gods; and all of you [are] children of the most High. (Psalm 82:6)

Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? (John 10:34)

The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. (Psalm 118:22)

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? (Mat. 21:42)

This is the Lord’s doing; it [is] marvellous in our eyes. (Psalm 118:23)

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? (Mat. 21:42)

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner [stone], a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. (Isa. 28:16)

Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. (I Pet. 2:6)

In some cases the italics avoid what would otherwise be contradictions. For example 2 Samuel 21:19 says:

And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaare-oregim, a Beth-lehemite, slew [the brother of] Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.

Without the italics Elhanan would be credited with having slain Goliath, rather than David. And 1 Chronicles 20:5 confirms that the italics in 2 Samuel 21:19 are correct, and reads:

And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver’s beam.

Because the New Testament writers quote Old Testament italics, this means that those italics were in the original manuscripts. Although the King James translators did not have those words in the Hebrew, they were lead by the Holy Spirit to put in the right words that are quoted in the Greek New Testament.

The italicized words are inspired.

How to STOP Alien Abductions and Demonic Oppression - Spiritual Warfare

Many UFO abductees and victims of demonic oppression feel helpless when visited, attacked or kidnapped by these entities. They do not know how to stop the occurences. However, there is a way to stop both alien abductions and demonic oppression dead in their tracks.

Signs of Alien Abduction and Demonic Oppression

Many of the signs of alien abduction are the same for demonic oppression. Some of which are:

* Loss of time and memory
* Sleep paralysis
* Dreams of aliens or supernatural entities
* Unexplained scars, contusions or abrasions
* Inexplicable aches and pains, like severe headaches
* Sensory changes in vision, hearing, sense of smell, and sense of taste
* Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
* Uncontrollable thoughts
* Sudden chills or overwhelming heat in the body
* Uncontrollable feelings like, fear, hatred, guilt or depression
* Supernatural events
* Voices that are not coming from the victim’s own mind
* Sudden personality and attitude changes
* Heavy sleepiness when reading the Bible, listening to a preacher, etc.
* Demonstration of ESP
* It feels like there is a band around the victim’s head

Alien Abductions and Demonic Oppression Are from the Same Source

In the book "Unholy Communion: The Alien Abduction Phenomenon. Where It Originates And How It Stops" authors David Ruffino and Joseph Jordan document how so-called aliens are actually Fallen Angels who work with demons in Satan’s hierarchy. They are not from another planet, but from another dimension and can manifest themselves physically, to a degree, under certain conditions.

Several UFOlogists have come to the belief that the alien abduction phenomenon is not about creatures visiting Earth from another planet, but that it is actually supernatural.

Jacques Vallee, a computer scientist and astronomer, writes in his book "Confrontations" on pages 160-161 that "The UFO beings of today belong to the same clase of manifestation as the entities that were described in centuries past..." On page 15 of his book "Messengers of Deception" he says that impressive parallels can be made between UFO occupants and the popular conception of demons, and on page 19 Vallee writes that UFOs can "project images or fabricated scenes designed to change our belief systems."

J. Allen Hynek was an astronomer and professor who came to believe similar views as Vallee. In an interview for "The Unexplained Column" by Allen Spragett, November 8, 1975, Hynek said that many UFO reports are more like accounts of poltergeists and psychic manifestations than "actual solid items of nuts and bolts hardware." And "This is one of the reasons why I cannot accept the obvious explanation of UFOs as visitors from outer space."

Several other UFO researchers came to the conclusion that the UFO phenomenon is not extraterrestrials from another planet, but beings that come from another dimension. Some of whom are:

John E. Mack, Raymond E. Fowler, Ivar Mackay, Lynn Catoe, Pierre Guerin, John Keel, Ronald D. Story, Farah Yurdozu and Whitley Strieber.

Some people can manifest UFOs on demand. They will either use magic rituals to summon them, or they will use a certain type of meditation or telepathy. There are videos on YouTube that document people doing this, which is further evidence that the phenomenon is spiritual that can manifest in the natural to varying degrees. A space vehicle from another planet could not and would not just suddenly appear before humans engaged in a summoning ritual. However, entities from the spirit realm could and they do appear when conditions are right.

Here is a webpage with videos that show people manifesting UFOs:
https://www.soulask.com/anyone-can-su...​

The Holy Bible describes these creatures in a number of verses. Demons (or devils) are of lower rank than the angels. They can tempt people to sin through thoughts and they can sometimes possess a human being. These spirits can manifest under certain circumstances. Usually they appear as dark shapes many call "the shadow people." When they can move objects they are called "poltergeists."

How to Find Value in Your Life - The Key to Happiness

Every single one of us would like to have a life worth living. A life of value. And we are all seeking happiness. But for many these aspirations come far too infrequently. They are enjoyed on occasion, but most of the time these people are left with a hollow, void feeling inside.

Others feel happiness more often, but they too ask themselves if their lives really do have meaning. It is a rarity when we encounter a person that is full of life, vibrant and for the most part is happy.

What Are People So Miserable?

It seems that more and more these days people are looking inward for happiness. They’ll take their selfies to post on Instagram, send out a meme on Facebook to get a like or try to find someone to converse with to talk about - oneself.

We live in an age where even the poor would be considered rich in just about any other age. We have more things than at any other time in history and technology makes our lives more "convenient" at an astonishingly fast pace.

In the age of instant electronic communication and social media people have become more self-centered and more narcissistic than ever before in history.

And people are more miserable than ever before.

The more people turn inward, the sadder they become.

What is the Meaning of Life and How Can We Be Happy?

From a certain perspective life only has the meaning each individual places on it. Put when a person decides that he or she is the center of the universe and looks inward for the meaning of life and tries to find happiness on the inside, that person really gets the opposite of what was searched for.

You see, the answer does not lie inside us, but outside us. Instead of trying to find meaning and happiness for ourselves we should be trying to help others find meaning and happiness.

By helping other people in some way you instantly give your own life meaning, and you immediately feel better about yourself. When we look at what we can do for others, rather than ourselves, our perspective becomes clear. We no longer put the cart before the horse, and we begin to realize that when we turn things inward those things become dark and ugly. But when we put them out into the world they can shine bright and that gets reflected back to us.

So the question becomes not "How can I be happy?" But "How can I make others happy?"

Answer that question and then set out right away to do it. Use your unique abilities and talents to take your own individual happiness out into the world.

The Holy Bible has given us the formula for happiness for thousands of years:

Psalm 41:1

Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.

Luke 11:41

But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.

Matthew 6:4

That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Matthew 25:34-40

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Growing As a Christian - Prayer, Scripture and Fasting: Spirit, Soul and Body

The Bible says that there are three parts that make up a human being: Spirit, Soul (Mind), and Body.

A Christian should grow in each of these three areas on a daily basis.

Spirit = Prayer
Soul = Scriptures
Body = Fasting (Exercise when not on a long fast, or do very light exercise)

Spend at least one hour daily on these three things. For most people it is best to do the exercises in the morning.

You could spend 20 min. a day under each of the three sections for one hour:

20 minutes of Prayer
20 minutes of Reading the Scriptures
20 minutes of Exercise (and practice Intermittent Fasting)

Or, for example, you could spend 30 minutes under each section for a total of 1 1/2 hours:

30 minutes of Prayer and Goals
30 minutes of Reading and Memorizing the Scriptures
30 minutes of Strength and Conditioning Exercises (and practice Intermittent Fasting)

When starting out with the exercises you could start small (like 5 minutes a day for each section, for a total of 15 minutes daily). Then gradually add on more time as your new habit develops.

Exercising the Spirit, Soul and Body on a daily basis will work wonders in your life and your Christian walk.

"The Demonic Spider: Ayahuasca, Witches and Jesus"

NOTE: A few times during this video there is a BEEP sound. It is there to mask information that I do not want to give out - like the ayahuasquero's real name. The reason will be explained in another video.

This video is about when I was in Pucallpa, Peru for an ayahuasca ceremony with a master ayahuasquero (a shaman who specializes in ayahuasca) and a witch.

Sorcery was used on me in the form of a Demonic Spider which almost completely took me over - until...

In this video I give tips on how to fast effectively.

Fasting is a powerful way to improve your health, to cure diseases and to extend longevity.

Fasting cured my plaque psoriasis, rosacea, spider veins, helped me to sleep better and helped my overall health.

If you are suffering from health problems, or wish to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I recommend that you start fasting.

For more information about fasting read the book "The Miracle of Fasting" by Paul Bragg, watch videos by Dr. Robert Morse and check out the YouTube channel MarkJamesGordon.

Website: https://www.againstspiritualwickedness.com

There are 5 Types, or Levels, of Fasting:

1) Intermittent Fast
2) Light Fast
3) Water Fast
4) Dry Fast
5) Absolute Fast

Fasting is a powerful way to improve your health and to cure diseases. In this video you will learn which type of fasting is right for you.

Fasting cured my plaque psoriasis, rosacea, spider veins, helped me to sleep better and helped my overall health.

If you are suffering from health problems, or wish to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I recommend that you start fasting.

I had plaque psoriasis which dermatologists say has no cure.

I was looking for ways to treat or cure psoriasis and I came across this verse in the Bible:

2 Chronicles 16:12

And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the Lord, but to the physicians.

So I did not go to the dermatologists this time (I had gone earlier for rosacea but they did nothing to help). Instead I went to the Lord. I prayed for help for a few days and during prayer the Holy Spirit told me that I needed to fast.

I researched fasting and discovered that it can cure many ailments. So I would fast for a few days, then eat for a few days, and I repeated this cycle for about 2 months. During that time my plaque psoriasis was completely cured and has not returned. This was about 2 1/2 years ago.

Fasting also cured my rosacea, spider veins, helped me to sleep better and helped my overall health.

If you are suffering from health problems, or wish to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I recommend that you start fasting.

Bible Problem: 2 Samuel 24:10 vs 1 Kings 15:5. Did King David Only Sin Once?

Problem

2 Samuel 24:10 says:

And David's heart smote him after that he had numbered the people. And David said unto the Lord, I have sinned greatly in that I have done: and now, I beseech thee, O Lord, take away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.

But 1 Kings 15:5 says:

Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.

David obviously sinned more than just with the matter of Uriah (in which he committed adultery with Uriah’s wife Bathsheba and had him killed in battle). 2 Samuel 24:10 says that David sinned in commanding the census.

But 1 Kings 15:5 only mentions the Uriah incident, so is this verse wrong?

Solution

David sinned by having Uriah killed, by committing adultery, and by commanding the numbering of the Israelites (he was glorifying himself - the sin of pride), among other things.

However 1 Kings 15:5 does not claim that David only sinned once. It says that “David did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord,” referring to an overall sense that David was a good guy by God’s standard of righteousness; which is faith. And then the text says that David “turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.” This verse is about how King David disobeyed a direct commandment from God. The verse is not about how many times David had sinned.

Website: http://www.againstspiritualwickedness.com

Bible Problem: John 14:27 vs Matthew 10:34-36. Did Jesus Give Peace or a Sword?

Problem:

In John 14:27 Jesus says to His disciples:

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

And in Matthew 10:34-36 Jesus says:

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Solution:

In John 14:27 Jesus is talking to His disciples. So He is saying here that He gives peace to His followers.

In Matthew 10:34-36 Jesus is talking about the world, the unsaved people. God sends the sword, or warfare, to an earth of disobedient sinners.

In this chapter Jesus tells His disciples to go out into the world to preach the kingdom of heaven. So He was also warning them about what to expect from the world, and how even families become at odds with each other when they hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Bible Problem: 2 Samuel 24:13 vs 1 Chronicles 21:11-12 . Did God Tell David to Choose Seven Years of Famine or Three?

Problem

2 Samuel 24:13

So Gad came to David, and told him, and said unto him, Shall seven years of famine come unto thee in thy land? or wilt thou flee three months before thine enemies, while they pursue thee? or that there be three days' pestilence in thy land? now advise, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me.

1 Chronicles 21:11-12

11 So Gad came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Choose thee

12 Either three years' famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the Lord, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the Lord destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.

So did God, through the prophet Gad, ask King David to choose seven years of famine or three years of famine?

Solution:

Israel just had three years of famine in 2 Samuel 21:1, then at least a month of famine in 2 Samuel 21:9-10, and in 2 Samuel 24:8 Israel suffered nine months and twenty days of famine during the numbering of the people. So the Israelites had just gone through about four years of famine.

If David chose to have three more years of famine then Israel would have had a total of about seven years of famine.

The prophet Gad could have spoken to King David on two or more occasions until David made up his mind. Something like: “So David, do you choose to have seven years of total famine?” Then later, “David, have you chosen to have three more years of famine?”

The text in the King James Bible aligns up perfectly.

The Difference Between GOD, God and god in the King James Bible

While reading the King James Bible you may have noticed that the word "god" is spelled three different ways: GOD (all uppercase letters), God (the G is capitalized and the other letters are lowercase), and god (all lowercase letters).

What is the difference?

The three spellings of "god" indicate different meanings, which are:

god (all lowercase letters): denotes a deity or an object of worship, and sometimes means "judge" or "magistrate." It is never used to refer to God the Supreme Being.

God (capitalized G and the other letters are lowercase): In the Old Testament the Hebrew word Elohiym is translated "God." In the New Testament "God" also refers to the Supreme Being, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

GOD (all uppercase letters): This refers to the name of God rendered Yahweh or Jehovah.

The Phrases LORD God (LORD in all uppercase letters) and Lord GOD (GOD in all uppercase letters) in the Old Testament

The Old Testament was written in Hebrew (with some parts written in Aramaic). The New Testament was written in Greek.

In the Old Testament KJV we find these two phrases which do not appear as spelled in the New Testament:

LORD God (LORD in all uppercase letters): is from the Hebrew YHWH (Yahweh, sometimes rendered as Jehovah) Elohiym. Yahweh is the name of God (whose pronunciation is debated) and Elohiym means "God," the Supreme Being (in the singular and sometimes plural sense). So here we have LORD God as Yahweh God.

Lord GOD (GOD in all upper caseletters): are the Hebrew words Adonai YHWH (Yahweh). Adonai is translated as Lord (capital L and the rest lowercase letters), while YHWH (Yahweh) is translated as LORD (all uppercase letters.) The translators could not have the text read “Lord LORD,” so they have GOD in all uppercase letters stand for God’s name Yahweh. So in this case Lord GOD (GOD in all upper case letters) means Lord Yahweh.

The King James Bible’s Built in Dictionary - The Bible Defines Itself

The King James Bible’s translation into English was finished in 1611. Many people claim that it is too difficult to understand the King James Bible (KJB), also known as the King James Version (KJV), because some words have changed meaning and other words are not used anymore. However, most people are not aware that the King James Bible has a built in dictionary that defines all of the most difficult words. The KJV defines itself according to God’s definition of the words, not man’s.

The first time an important word appears in the KJV it defines itself in context, even using the words of the Oxford English Dictionary and the Webster’s 1828 English Dictionary (both are available online). The vocabulary and reading level builds progressively throughout the King James Bible, and being a legal document it is very precise.

The First Time a Word Appears in the KJV there are Three Ways to Find Its Definition:

1) Look at the words that are right before and right after the word you need defined

2) Look at all the other words in the verse that has the word in question

3) Look at the next verses or the preceding verses; read the entire chapter

Some Examples:

Word in Question: ATHIRST from Judges 15:18:

And he was sore athirst, and called on the Lord, and said, Thou hast given this great deliverance into the hand of thy servant: and now shall I die for thirst, and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised?

We see the word “thirst” in the verse and Webster’s defines the word “athirst” as “thirsty; wanting drink.”

Word in Question: BESOM from Isaiah 14:23:

I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the Lord of hosts.

We read “I will sweep it with the besom of destruction,” which indicates that BESOM means to sweep with destruction, power or force. The Oxford dictionary’s definition of the word is “to sweep with force.”

Word in Question: BETWIXT from Genesis 17:11:

And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.

Looking at the previous verse, Genesis 17:10, we read:

This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.

So after reading “between me and you” in verse 10 we read in verse 11 “betwixt me and you,” giving us the definition of BETWIXT, which is between.

Word in Question: ABATED from Genesis 8:3:

And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

Looking at the previous verses in chapter 8 we find the words “stopped,” “restrained,” “waters returned,” and then in verse 3 “waters were abated.” So we now know that the word ABATED means to stop, restrain, to decrease.

One last example: ALPHA and OMEGA from Revelation 1:8:

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Here the Greek words ALPHA and OMEGA are defined in the verse as meaning “the beginning and the ending.”

The King James Bible Defines Itself

The King James Bible tells us something in many different ways so we can better understand what God wants us to know. The Bible teaches us by repetition. There are key biblical words that tie concepts together. When we pay attention to what we read in the KJV, and take the time to study it, we will uncover a treasure trove of wisdom and knowledge that God has graciously given to us.

Proverbs 25:2

It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

The Difference Between LORD, Lord, lord in the Old Testament King James Bible

While reading the Old Testament in the King James Bible you may have noticed that the word "lord" is spelled three different ways: LORD (all uppercase letters), Lord (the L is capitalized and the rest is lowercase) and lord (all lowercase letters).

What is the difference?

The Old Testament was written in Hebrew, with a few portions in Aramaic. The three spellings of "lord" indicate different Hebrew words. Here are the meanings of each:

lord (all lowercase letters): This always refers to man, not God. It means "master," or someone who has authority over another.

Lord (capitalized L, the other letters are lowercase): This refers to God in the plural form, meaning "my lords." It is addressing the Trinitarian aspect of God and in some parts of the Old Testament it refers to the pre-incarnate Christ.

LORD (all uppercase letters): This is for the divine name of God. It has four consonant letters: YHWH and is called the tetragrammaton. The vowels were taken out so people would not speak God’s name, but would use the substitute Hebrew word Adonai instead (which means Lord, capital L and then lowercase letters). No one knows for sure how to pronounce the tetragrammaton, but it is generally agreed to be Yahweh, while some use Jehovah.

Remember:

lord (all lowercase letters): is a human master or authority figure.

Lord (capitalized L, the other letters are lowercase): is God in the plural form.

LORD (all uppercase letters): is God’s name Yahweh or Jehovah.

The Phrases LORD God (LORD in all uppercase letters) and Lord GOD (GOD in all uppercase letters) in the Old Testament

The Old Testament was written in Hebrew (with some parts written in Aramaic). The New Testament was written in Greek.

In the Old Testament KJV we find these two phrases which do not appear as spelled in the New Testament:

LORD God (LORD in all uppercase letters): is from the Hebrew YHWH (Yahweh, sometimes rendered as Jehovah) Elohiym. Yahweh is the name of God (whose pronunciation is debated) and Elohiym means "God," the Supreme Being (in the singular and sometimes plural sense). So here we have LORD God as Yahweh God.

Lord GOD (GOD in all uppercase letters): are the Hebrew words Adonai YHWH (Yahweh). Adonai is translated as Lord (capital L and the rest lowercase letters), while YHWH (Yahweh) is translated as LORD (all uppercase letters.) The translators could not have the text read “Lord LORD,” so they have GOD in all uppercase letters stand for God’s name Yahweh. So in this case Lord GOD (GOD in all upper case letters) means Lord Yahweh.

The High Importance of the Meaning of Words

While doing biblical research on the internet I came across some very interesting videos by a man who claims to be Christian. Much of what he said was true, and could be verified, but the more I watched his videos the more questions I had, and the more suspicious I became. I felt like he was manipulating his viewers, but I wasn’t sure how.

So I prayed about this, asking God if these were true Christian videos, or a cleverly disguised deception. God told me that it is highly important to know the meaning of words, and gave me some words who’s definitions I needed to look up. I did so and immediately discovered that the man in question is not a Christian but a gnostic who subtly deceives Christians into believing unbiblical views.

You Are Easily Manipulated When You Don’t Know the Definition of Words

Word-play and manipulation is like a magician’s trick. If you don’t know what to look for you can be easily fooled. The word magician can lead you on a path you normally would not go, by using words that you think you know the definition of, but actually do not.

Politicians are masters of this. Often they will describe something that sounds good, but if you know the definitions of the proper words you will discover that what they seem to propose is actually the opposite of what they desire. In this way people believe they are voting for certain policies and laws when they are really voting against them.

How many voters know the true definitions of the following words?:
Fascism - Socialism - Capitalism - Communism - Liberalism - Conservatism - Republic - Democracy

Common English has a certain meaning, but in law the same word can have a totally different definition. In a court of law it is of extreme importance to know the legal definition of words. Even words and names using lower case and capital letters have a different legal meaning than words and names written in all capital letters. Do an internet search for "why legal name is all capitals" or "birth certificate name in all caps" and see what comes up. Do you know the meaning of "maritime law" or "admiralty law"?

Of course, many religious leaders, evangelists, preachers and new agers use words to fool their followers as well. Wolves in sheep’s clothing are far easier to spot when you know the definition of religious or belief systems like: Christianity - Pentecostalism - Calvinism - Gnosticism - Agnosticism - Animism - Protestantism - Catholicism - Judaism - Islamism - Theism - Atheism and so forth.

Even when you know the meaning of words they can still be used against you if you are not aware of the manipulation. Many things, people and situations are renamed in order to reframe your beliefs.

The media will use sensationalism to distort the facts of a news report to excite the audience and to form biased impressions. The media also puts its spin on a story, which is a form of propaganda. They will spin words like "homophobia" or "Islamophobia" to push a certain agenda or belief.

Advertisements in all its forms use a number of tactics in which words are used to influence the audience to make a buying decision, whether it is beneficial or harmful for the consumer. There are many words used in a copywriter’s arsenal to trigger emotions, like: guaranteed, money-back, scarce, limited-time, quality, now, powerful, secrets, special offer, free and bonus.

At a higher level many advertisers, media outlets, religious leaders, lawyers, writers, musicians and politicians use words to hypnotize people.

Words Have Different Meanings According to Situation, Context and Time

Situation: The meaning of a word can change according to the situation you are in. For example; in an informal setting the word "kill" is probably used to mean "to cause the death of something." But in court it can mean "to cancel an investment transaction prior to the system receiving its posting." If you are in the United States and you hear the word "bird" it refers to the animal, but in England it is used to describe "a very young female." In the USA a "casket" means coffin, but in Great Britain in means "a box to store jewelry or trinkets."

Context: A word may have several different meanings. To determine its definition you need to look at the context in which the word is used. For example: some of the meanings for the word "race" are: the act of running, a contest of speed, to function at top speed, a breeding stock of animals, a class or kind of people unified by shared interests, habits, or characteristics. To determine the meaning the author intended it is vital to take the word in context. In the sentence "he won the iron man race" the author is obviously talking about a contest of speed and not a breeding stock of animals.

Satan’s Weapons: Progressive Entrapment -
The Ouija Board, Ayahuasca and the Occult

What is Progressive Entrapment?

2 Corinthians 11:13-15

13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 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.

One of Satan’s most cunning, subtle and manipulative weapons is what is called “progressive entrapment.”

Progressive entrapment is a term used when the spirit of an Ouija board slowly gains the trust and dependence of the board user with intent to deceive, manipulate and control him.

The Typical Progressive Entrapment Process

In Chapter 4 of the book “The Ouija Board: A Doorway to the Occult,” Edmond C. Gruss cites from the article “The Truth About the Ouija Board,” by J. Godfrey Raupert and from the book “The Satan Trap: Dangers of the Occult” by Martin Ebon, to describe the typical progressive entrapment process.

I will summarize here:

1) The spirit claims to be a deceased friend or family member of the board user, or at least acts like a friend, and the spirit’s messages are completely normal.
2) Non-threatening and light-hearted exchanges occur until trust is established with the board user.
3) Then the spirit changes character and relates unexplained, surprising messages. The spirit may know things about the board user that nobody could possibly know, or it may predict the future.
4) Something beneficial is gained by the board user, an emotional healing or insight into a problem, for example, and the spirit gains more trust. The spirit claims that it wishes to continue the relationship for the benefit of the board user and the human race.
5) The user continues communication and the spirit gains more control over the user’s mind.
6) The user receives lots more revealing messages and is told that he is “special,” or is “chosen” for an important task and deserves this unique attention from supernatural beings.
7) The user begins to do what the spirit desires, often becoming obsessed with the designated task
8) Very subtly the spirit plants doubt and immorality in the user’s mind. It might say that the spouse is unfaithful, or state that a co-worker wishes to do harm, or maybe a friend’s motives are not benevolent. Those against the use of the Ouija board are especially attacked. The idea that moral codes are created by man and that Christian ideals are outdated becomes more prevalent. The user begins to feel that he is above morals, or that he can make his own.
9) Psychic powers are developed. These could be automatic writing, clairvoyance, clairaudience, precognition or telepathy. The user may receive messages from other spirits; he hears more voices.
10) The user’s mind gate is opened to spirits and he has no power to close it. He begins to collapse mentally and morally. The spirits become hostile and obscene. Possession may occur.

Progressive Entrapment is in All Areas of the Occult

Gruss in “The Ouija Board: A Doorway to the Occult,” documents several cases in which interaction with the Ouija board ends very badly, sometimes in murder or suicide.

The novel "The Exorcist" by William Peter Blatty and the film adaption are based on real-life events. "Possessed: The True Story of an Exorcism" by Thomas B. Allen documents the real story of the 14-year-old boy who was introduced to the Ouija board by his spiritualist aunt, and became possessed by means of progressive entrapment.

What is not recognized is that progressive entrapment does not stop with the Ouija board, but runs through every aspect of the occult and even in the UFO phenomena.

In "The Mothman Prophesies" John Keel investigates very strange sightings of a winged apparition called the Mothman in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. His investigation leads him down the road of high strangeness in the paranormal and he encounters UFOs, the Men in Black, alien contactees, mysterious phone calls and the prediction of future events that had him questioning his sanity. The entire book unfolds a very elaborate plan of progressive entrapment that ultimately ends in tragedy.

When I would drink the San Pedro and Ayahuasca hallucinogens I was the prey of sophisticated progressive entrapment. The spirits followed the classic progressive entrapment of the Ouija board, but were able to make it much more effective due to the effect of the hallucinogenic brews and the guidance of witches and shaman. For a time I became obsessed with Ayahuasca after it helped me to quit a ten-year smoking addiction...

The Law, or Principal, of First Mention in the Holy Bible

The Law of First Mention, also called the Principal of First Mention, simply means that the first time an important word or phrase is used in the Bible it is in its most understandable or simplest form. As it continues to be referred to, that concept is expanded upon and more fully developed.

Genesis, the book of beginnings, contains many of the “First Mentions,” like: God, heaven, good, atonement, covenant, family, sacrifice, love, salvation and many, many more.

You can use a tool like eSword, available for free download at e-sword.net, or the Blue Letter Bible at blueletterbible.org, to look up a word or phrase to find its First Mention, and all the other verses with the same word or phrase. This way you can see how the concept develops.

Let’s take the word “blood” and extract its first mention and a few random verses.

Genesis 4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

Genesis 9:4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

John 6:53
Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

Ephesians 2:3
But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Hebrews 12:24
And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Revelation 19:13
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

In just seven verses we can see how the word “blood” is expanded upon throughout the Bible. With an extended study we will learn much more about this complex word and concept.

Understand that the Law of First Mention is better termed the Principal of First Mention as it is intended to be a guideline, and concepts must be taken in context.

Applying this principal is a powerful and simple way for us to greatly expand our knowledge of Biblical concepts.

The Meaning of the Rod and Staff in the Holy Bible

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. - Psalm 23:4

What are the rod and the staff of God?

In biblical times the rod and staff were a shepherd's tools.

The rod was used to discipline a sheep with a tap on the side of its head. It could also be used to protect the sheep against predators.

The staff (or crook) is a hooked staff. It was used to hook a sheep's head to guide it back to the flock.

The rod represents God's discipline and the staff represents God's guidance. Both are used to protect God's followers from harm.

Rods and staves are also used as symbols of leadership or authority in the Bible. Like the rod of Moses and the rod of Aaron, or the staff of Elisha.

Some Bible verses talk about using the rod on a child. This is often misunderstood to mean that the child should be physically beaten. However, there is a big difference between A rod, a physical object, and THE rod, a metaphor for discipline.

Proverbs 13:24:

He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

Proverbs 22:15:

Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

And Proverbs 23:13-14:

13 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.

14 Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.

From these, and other biblical verses, the saying “spare the rod and spoil the child” was clearly inspired. It does not appear in the Bible.

The saying comes from the 17th-century poem ”Hudibras”, written by Samuel Butler.

God loves those whom He guides and disciplines. THE rod refers to discipline, not corporal punishment.

Proverbs 3:11-12

11 My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction:

12 For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

When God breaks one of His staves, He is breaking a covenant. Read Zechariah chapter 11 to discover what happens when God breaks His two staves, called Beauty and Bands.

The Rod (discipline), and the Staff (guidance) are the tools of a Good Shepherd. Jesus Christ is the shepherd of all who believe in Him. In John chapter 10 Jesus explains His role as the shepherd. In verses 14 through 16 Jesus says:

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.

16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

And in verses 27 and 28 Jesus says:

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Test the Spirits of Ayahuasca, Psilocybin, LSD, Peyote and other Hallucinogens

I receive messages from worried friends and families about Christians who take ayahuasca and other hallucinogens. They wonder what can be done to get the Christian to stop taking such substances.

First, I would point out that many who claim to be Christian actually are not true born-again believers, rather members of a cult or religious institution that call themselves Christian, but are not. They need to get saved by believing on Jesus Christ.

Second, it is clearly and strictly forbidden in the Bible to engage in any occult activity as stated in many verses like Deuteronomy 18: 10-11, which reads:

10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

Third, if you are born-again and you ignore God's command to abstain from the occult, sorcery and the like, and decide to take ayahuasca or some other hallucinogen anyway, I challenge you to test the spirits you encounter according to 1 John 4:1-3:

1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

While on an hallucinogenic journey follow John's advice and ask the spirits, entities, creatures, guides, demons or whatever you encounter if Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.

A warning though. The tested spirits may not react kindly to you.

Meanings of the Word Endings EST and ETH in the King James Bible

The King James Bible has many words ending in EST or ETH like goest or goeth. If we take the EST or ETH from the word we have the simple meaning. For example, when we eliminate the EST and ETH from goest and goeth we have the word go. This is the easiest way to understand the principal meaning of a word of this type.

But why the EST and ETH? What do they mean?

The King James Bible was translated to give us the clearest meaning of the translated texts as possible. In this case these suffixes are given to help us differenciate between the Second and Third Person Singular.

Words ending in EST are Second Person Singular Present.

Words ending in ETH are Third Person Singular Present.

For example:

When we add EST to the word see, it becomes seest, which is the Second Person Singular Present. If we add ETH to the word see it becomes seeth, which is the Third Person Singular Present.

Other words with EST and ETH are:

Mayest - Mayeth Teachest - Teacheth Carest - Careth

Callest - Calleth Knowest - Knoweth Sendest - Sendeth

Comest - Cometh Answerest - Answereth Doest - Doeth

In Luke 23:3 when Jesus says "Thou sayest it," he was speaking to Pilate in the Second Person Singular Present.

In John 21:17 Jesus says to Simon Peter "Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me?" Again, the word love with EST or lovEST indicates the Second Person Singular Present (Jesus speaking to Peter).

In John 1:15 John the Baptist speaks of Jesus "He that cometh after me is preferred before me:" the ETH in cometh shows us that Jesus is being spoken of in the Third Person Singular Present, and further down in verse 26 John the Baptist says to the Pharisees about Jesus: "I baptise with water, but there standeth one among you whom ye know not." Again we see ETH, this time with the word stand. In this case standeth refers to Jesus in the Third Person Singular Present.

Did Jesus Command Us to Sell Everything We Own?

In Matthew chapter 19 a rich young man had a brief conversation with Jesus about how he may obtain eternal life. Jesus told him to follow the commandments and the young man replied that he had followed all of them. Jesus then told the young man to sell his possessions and to follow Him. But the young man couldn’t do it.

In Matthew chapter 19 verses 16 – 22 we read:

16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

First: notice that Jesus summarized the last six of the Ten Commandments that deal with how we should treat our fellow human beings. Jesus did not mention any of the first four Commandments which tell us how we should be with God, which are:

1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me
2) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image
3) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
4) Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy

When the young man told Jesus that he followed the last six Commandments Jesus told him to sell his possessions, which the rich young man could not do. Jesus was showing the young man that he was not following the Commandments that concern our relationship with God. The young man put his wealth and possessions before God, therefore breaking the first and second Commandments, and quite possibly the third and fourth as well. The rich young man was so enamored with his material wealth that he would not give it up even when God in the flesh told him to do so.

Second: many people believe that Jesus was telling everyone, even us today, to give up all of our possessions in order to become followers or disciples of Christ. But look at the context. Jesus was speaking directly to the young man. It was a conversation just between the two of them. Also, Jesus used the pronoun thou when speaking to the young man.

In the King James Bible the pronouns that start with a “T” are singular (thee, thou, thine), and the pronouns that start with “Y” are plural (you, your, ye).

Jesus was speaking directly to the young man in the singular. After the young man left Jesus then spoke to his disciples and used the plural pronoun you to address everyone in verses 23 and 24:

23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Jesus showed the young rich man that he was not following all of the Ten Commandments and that he needed to repent (change his mind) about his worldly wealth by selling his possessions and following Jesus. He was speaking directly to the rich young man and never commanded all of us to sell everything we own.

Bible Problem: Is God Jealous?

Problem:

There are many Biblical verses that say God is jealous. For example, Exodus 34:14 says:

For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

Some other verses stating that God is jealous are Exodus 20:5, Deuteronomy 4:24 and Nahum 1:2.

Oprah Winfrey said on her television show that QUOTE "God is jealous, God is jealous of me”; UNQUOTE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2SrZ...

Is that true? Is God really jealous of people? Isn’t being jealous a negative trait?

Solution:

Sometimes people confuse the definition of words. In this case Jealous is confused for Envy.

Here is the definition of jealous according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

1 a: intolerant of rivalry or unfaithfulness
b: disposed to suspect rivalry or unfaithfulness
2: hostile toward a rival or one believed to enjoy an advantage
3: vigilant in guarding a possession - new colonies were jealous of their new independence-

Here is the definition of envy, also according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

1: painful or resentful awareness of an advantage enjoyed by another joined with a desire to possess the same advantage
2: obsolete: malice
3: an object of envious notice or feeling -his new car made him the envy of his friends-

You see God is not jealous of you, He is jealous for you. He is not envious of anyone or anything. God is jealous for His people as a husband is for his wife. When God’s people commit idolatry it is like a man’s wife committing adultery.

God’s jealousy is not a flawed human envy, but a loving jealousy for us. God is jealous as in “vigilant in guarding a possession,” He does not want anything to come between Him and his people, so yes, He is hostile toward a rival that attempts to do so. God is jealous, not envious.

Don’t flatter yourself Oprah.

Ayahuasca and San Pedro Hallucinogens Destroy Marriages

This is an email I received from a woman who began to have marital problems with her husband once he started taking the Ayahuasca and San Pedro brews. She wrote to me because I used to take both Ayahuaca and San Pedro here in Peru until I discovered how harmful they are.

Here is her email:

Hello Thomas,

I found your article on the internet as I have been researching for many years the very subject you wrote about in 2012.

I am just seeking some help and guidance, as in 2011 my now ex-husband ended up exploring Ayahuasca and subsequently San Pedro. Shortly after he began using the plant medicine he became obsessed with learning about it and eventually he started brewing and ended up running many ceremonies in our home for years till April this year.

Our marriage began to fall apart soon after he started using Aya, and I eventually began to display unusual behaviour where I was progressively becoming more depressed, and eventually isolated and aggressive. He began to withdraw more and I became more insecure. I at the time was conducing many Sound Healing events as i had been working with sound as a healing tool for over 20 years. Till 2011 I had done a lot of work, and achieved many wonderful creative endeavours as an inspirational speaker, and artist mainly healing work.

In any event our relationship deteriorated in October last year and eventually in April this year I walked out of the marriage needless to say it was not and has not been an easy ride.

I ended up getting some help some months ago with a Christian pastor who reckoned I was contaminated with evil spirits which I believe were attacking me within the relationship possibly from his side. He changed from being a kind and loving man to becoming arrogant, demeaning, condescending and paranoid, blaming me always of all issues, including our separation.

It is now a difficult situation even though we are separated, he is using many tactics some very subtle like ignoring, stone walling, and also aggression if I ever approach him. We have a child together and I have been trying to harmonise the situation for my son's sake, and his relationship with his father.

I am looking for some insights and help to better understand how to deal both with him and myself. Are you able to offer me some guidance and help in this matter?

Many years ago I did a lot of reading on Aya and whilst I was trying to support him everything I found was not supportive of the use of Ayahuasca, of course when I shared this with him he used to get very angry with me, and told me that I was trying to control him and manipulate him.

I spent many years in the New Age movement and recently found Christ and the Word of God in the Bible, I must admit it has change everything i have learnt for 27 years, It almost feels like a total eclipse of knowledge which was useful at the time but seems to be redundant now.

Hope you can help me somehow. Your article was very helpful already so thank you for taking the time to write it.

God Bless You

Here is my response to her:

Hi,

I am thrilled that you have found Jesus. He is the way out of the troubles our involvement with the New Age has caused us.

It seems to be common that Ayahuasca will try to get the practitioner to leave his or her spouse. It tried to get me to leave my wife, stating that she was holding me back and not letting me develop spiritually, etc.

When someone does Aya they literally have spirits enter their bodies. These spirits are invited by the practitioner who believes that they are benevolent spirits, when in fact they are malevolent demonic spirits. All ayahuasqueros recognize demons, and will usually tell people point blank that they exist and are used by the shaman in his sorcery.

These demons harbor inside the Aya practitioner and spiritually attack those around him or her - especially Christians.

Christians are constantly under demonic attack and only God can keep Christians shielded from those attacks.

What you need to do right now is to get deliverance from demonic attack. Ask your pastor if he knows someone who is in deliverance ministry (he may be hard to find). You need a deliverance minister to bind the evil spirits and to send them to the pit.

You should also do deliverances on yourself. Briefly, here are the steps to take:

Hi I'm Thomas Carroll and welcome to my channel Against Spiritual Wickedness.

The phrase "against spiritual wickedness" comes from the Bible, Ephesians 6:12

"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.”

This channel is about exposing satanic deception to reveal Jesus Christ.

We are born and indoctrinated into satanic systems of control. The world is under more mind control than ever before in history.

I used to study the occult, and the paranormal, but back in January 2012 Jesus Christ showed me the truth. I took a 180% turn from the occult to Jesus and I haven't looked back.

Jesus has shown me that the only way out of the satanic matrix is through Him. In John chapter 14 verse 6 it says "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me."

I've been having a gentle urgency from the Holy Ghost to share some things; thus this channel. So be sure to subscribe, share and comment. Visit often as there are lots more videos coming soon.
