There are other blogs where people encourage as I do yet you are not jumping on them as you do me. However there were no influences that would have given you so much strength as there was with this blog.

Wisdom is something that true kings rule by ( Solomon) in particular, Wisdom was here from the beginning. Pray that the lord will give you wisdom perhaps then you may be able to judge between good and evil.

MarkV, although I agree that Satan no longer has POWER OVER DEATH, as LIFE now is found In Christ, we are warned satan roams around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.

He is a liar, deceiver, and there are still over this world powers and principalities. In the last days more evil will be evident and anti-christ will reign for a while.

THIS is what we are called to OVERCOME in the Power of HIS MIGHT!

As we become overcomers, we grow stronger and stronget THROUGH GOD'S Word.
---kathr4453 on 12/31/10


You see where you fail Kathr and Mark_V you both have an axe to grind and trying to sharpen it on the wrong people, you do not have a clue who the enemy is and are spiritually blind.

How did you both demonstrate bearing the imfemities of the weak(the blog poster) by discerditing solid experinces and using scripture out of context.

Your witnesses are pure scepticism!

what steveng said was 100% bible so when you fail to recognise the truth you strengthen the devil, your both not fully ready for spiritual battle and satan is pleased but God is not. The battle is spiritual, not physical and you are both fighting with your mouth's instead of the word.
---Carla on 12/31/10


Steveng/Carla, when I first became a Christian the spiritual warefare was beyond description. It was real.

But there are very real TRUTHS in scripture for those IN CHRIST.

By Faith, we are seated above the powers and principalities. 2) Psalms 91 is a fact..those who dwell in the secret place of the most High ( us now IN CHRIST)...I urge you to read the whole psalm..and BELIEVE IT.
God will teach your hands to war, that you may break the bow of bronze, If you allow Him to.
Wear the whole armour of God,is absolutely necessary, and 1 John shows us WE OVERCOME satan and any demonic warefare. WE BECOME VICTORIOUS over our enemies!

You all will never be victorious if all you do is say...there are demons..watch out..duck!
---kathr4453 on 12/31/10


Steven G, you and I will not agree much on anything anyway. but let me say that I have looked at the world around me and it is the way it is because of sin. It is not the demons who are doing it, it is the sin of the creature. After the Cross the enemy was defeated and so were his angels. Their power is limited for all Christians have the Spirit of God. Now giving the demons a lot of credit is your cup of tea, not mine. If a person works with wi gi boards, are watches horror demon movies he will experience a lot of stress and spiritual problems. Spiritual I said.
---Mark_V. on 12/31/10




Carla, you did not give me any Scriptures that what I said was not true at all. What you gave me I already know, we do wrestle against principalities but that is a spiritual warfare. I said spiritual is possible. Your other verse Romans 8:39 speaks of no one can separate us from the love of Christ, my love is invisible, you are still speaking of spiritual matters, not physical. You have to try again but don't get upset, study to make yourself approved
---Mark_V. on 12/30/10


Ephesians 1:20-22
20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,

So Carla and markV, are you saying you are not IN CHRIST seated with Him ABOVE the powers and principalities of this world?

If you say you at one time weren't, but saved, HOW did you escape those powers today MarkV?
---kathr4453 on 12/30/10


Mark V: "While it is true that angels can... kill humans, given the power by God, they can also manifest into a human form, and hurt you..."

Then if angels (Satan is an angel) can surely kill and hurt you then they could surely hold a person down.

Where in the bible says that angels trasform themselves into human form? They only appear to be human.

Mark V, you are talking from both sides of your mouth.

I have shown you several verses about angel's strength, but you have not read. Now, it's time you show verses from the bible that they cannot perform physical feats.
---Steveng on 12/30/10


Mark_V: "What you do is give more power to demons then they have. After the death and resurrection of Christ their powers are now very limited."

On the contrary, they are more powerful now than ever before. Just take a look at the world around you and what do you see? It's Matthew 24, 2 Timothy 3:1-5, Daniel 12:4, Luke 21:23-24 all rolled up into a ball. Satan has only a short time here on earth and will do everything in his power to turn humans against God even to create signs and wonders and perform miracles.

Are you ready?
---Steveng on 12/30/10


Mark_V

Let me tell you something I have patience with you because I myself was a sceptic and would have said the things you say but... along life's way it is good to listen first read the word have an understanding then engage mouth.

The boy in the grave yard was moved by the evil spirit. He had no control, but there are ranks of spirits just as their are ranks of angels for they were indeed angels but are fallen under the power of satan.

now if I am to believe the word:

Eph 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].
---Carla on 12/30/10




God is above the devil and his works but do not forget scripture:Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Rom 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Paul is suggesting a separation here. it don't mean they won't try.... (Temptation of Christ)

Not food or film Mark... Or some vain words of self Kathr and accusation! use the word of truth to Stand approved.
---Carla on 12/30/10


Steven G, you were quoting the words of satan to defend your view. He "misquoted Ps." If you had read what he said you would know. He was lying. He never tells the truth. While it is true that angels can hold the wind (invisible) and kill humans, given the power by God, they can also manifest into a human form, and hurt you, tempt you and so on. They can also have dinner with you and you would not even know it. They are 'messengers." What you do is give more power to demons then they have. After the death and resurrection of Christ their powers are now very limited. Why? Because Christ lives in us. "Greater is He that is in me then he who is in the world" If you are Christian they cannot possess you.
---Mark_V. on 12/30/10


Mark_V: "Steven G, don't you realize you were quoting Satan?"

Satan was quoting a biblical truth, but Jesus refused. Why?

You did not read the verses I gave you on 12/22/10. Read them to show that angels have strength to accomplish God's will on earth.

If they have the strength to hold back the winds, they surely can hold a person down.
---Steveng on 12/29/10


Carla 2:, In no way did I suggested that if you sin you have demons in you. What I said was, that what causes you to wake up down and out could be your own sins. Not that because you sin you have a demon. That is just nonsense. What you describe and others too, are just not possible. You must belong to some Charismatic denomination who follows the teachings of Derek Prince, or some other person. If you do not like my answers and are sick of hearing them, shut down the computer and don't go to your TV either for you will see more movies on spirits and devils pulling people out of bed and dragging them through the floor then in any other place. Stop watching horror movies and train your mind on the good and great things of God.
---Mark_V. on 12/29/10


Carla, Bless you for your witness. I've also experienced being in a "frozen state" while I was asleep, awhile ago. For a long time I didn't know what it was. While I was in this frozen state, I felt "fear" and "helplessness". I was being bound and could not do anything about it. And, I just kept wishing I would wake up. I look back on that time, and I know I was in sin during that time of my life. I sense that too much of the Church underestimates the reality of devils and demonic spirits and their power. YAHUSHUA is way more Powerful, and Infinitely so. But, each of us must, in Faith, be open to His Power.
---Gordon on 12/29/10


Carla, I believe you are a great lady, and you mean to give good advice, but what you say is just not true. No spirit can pick anyone up and throw people against the walls or throw people to the ground and hold them. There is no such thing. They have no physical parts. They can possess a person and hurt others, they can also hurt you spiritually. But in no way can they hold you down physically. Unless you are not saved and and evil spirit has possessed you, otherwise it is not possible. You've seen too many movies. And those images are still in your mind and they project pictures from experience in your life. Maybe you saw 'paranormal" and other movies of the same kind.
---Mark_V. on 12/29/10

Carla 2: my argument with Gordon was not about spirits but about people coming back from the dead and seeing hell or heaven and telling others about it. He proposes that we should believe them because Scripture was not sufficient enough to tell us what hell was like. He needs signs and experiences of people to understand what hell is like. There is millions of people with signs. Jesus spoke more about hell then anyone, if Jesus words are not enough, then he has a problem with Scripture.
---Mark_V. on 12/29/10


Steven G, don't you realize you were quoting Satan? You used the quote satan made to Jesus. You want to argue with his word? He misquoted Ps. 91:11, 12. Your argument has no substance since it came from Satan. Try again, but only from the word of God. Think and study before you answer.
---Mark_V. on 12/28/10


Mark_V.: "The question is whether a spirit by itself can hold a person physically down. It can only hold him down spiritually not physically. For it has no physical parts to hold you down."

Do you believe that if a spirit can lift a person up then a spirit can hold a person down? Luke 4:9-13
---Steveng on 12/28/10


It may not just be a dream...it can be you in the spirit realm or a revelation of what it going on in your life. Plead the blood of Jesus, it has worked for me since I was a child. "I plead the Blood of Jesus"" Lord Jesus it is you who reign"

I am no authority on demons but there is a well known condition called Sleep Paralysis in the Mental Health field. Those who suffer from it describe a very disturbing awareness of evil and are terrified. Thank goodness you are only having nightmares rather then actually having this happen when you are conscious. The Neurologists have tried to explain this as well and have come up with all types of theories. Truth is that no one knows what causes it but I lean towards a spiritual cause.

Frank I also find you to a credible witness with love and with understanding and when the Holy Spirit works he works through the few not the many.

God knows we speak and witness in truth, not afraid of what is below us but what is above and holds our eternal future. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

How can we be confused.... God is truth and those who are sceptic are without understanding and afraid of the very evil they claim to understand. I was once a sceptic and belittled Ghost experiences, but now as a mature Christian I have the gift of discernment, I also feel in my spirit if they are speaking truth.
---Carla on 12/27/10


Moderator, If a demon or devil can possess a person and cause them to hurl themselves into fires and cause them to cut themselves (as recorded in the Gospels), taking control of the victim's body, then, they surely would have the power to hold a person down. The more the person gives into to sin and the occult, the more power the devils have. Especially if a person is filled with more than one devil. The spiritual body is more real than the fleshly, physical ones that we humans now inhabit. It doesn't seem that way because our inferior human eyes cannot see the spirit world (except when GOD allows it).
---Gordon on 12/27/10


Frank, I don't believe anyone is disputing that a spirit can possess a human being. They possessed pigs also. The question is whether a spirit by itself can hold a person physically down. It can only hold him down spiritually not physically. For it has no physical parts to hold you down. It can only hold you down if he is possessing another human. An evil spirit could come into your dreams. But it is a dream. Many things hold us down, the first person that is mentioned is satan or a demon. It could be the persons sins. It could be as the mod said, ate the wrong food the night before. It could be your conscience that is bothering you. So many things it could be. If you are a genuine believer no spirit can possess your body.

Mod what do you mean by spiritually?

Either you are physically held down or not the fact that you cannot wake from this stronghold until it releases you, is that not physically holding you down whether it be spiritually or physically
you cannot speak or wake although you are conscious that this is happening physically you cannot move or speak.

Now this also happens when you are awake although I have never been totally awake and held down I was always woken from sleep or going into sleep.

I have experienced a room filled with a strong condescending oppressing presence, that I was forced to wrestle through prayer, off of myself and sister.
---Carla on 12/27/10


If an evil spirit could throw a young man down in front of Jesus they can surely hold a person down.
They are also listed as throwing a person when being cast out by the Lord.
It is not good to limit what the devil can do when the Lord saw them take hold and throw people.
Making a joke out of it isn't wise either as the Lord takes his word very serious. It says he has exalted his word above all his name.
May God bless,
Frank

My testimony is sure, and I give God thanks that he knows my heart mind and soul, because if it was left up to sceptics the world would be in continuous bandage. I will continue to allow the name of the Lord to expel evil spirits and Kathr you can allow what ever ignorant spirit you possess or food you have been eating to cause what ever deludion you were experiencing.

However the Specialist I ever needed or anyone else to expel demons is Jesus Christ.

Mark_V.: [a 12/24/10 reply concerning who wrestled with Jacob]

Jacob thought he was wrestling with a man. Which was it? A man, an angel, or God himself? The questions are:

Who renamed Jacob? 2 Kings 17:34, Isaiah 45:4

Who blesses people?

Whose face did Jacob see?

Whose face are we to seek?

Who allowed Jacob to win? Isaiah 41:21, Isaiah 44:2

What was the purpose of the wrestle? Isaiah 44:23

What does Peniel mean?

Do an online KJV bible search for the word "Jacob" to learn more.

Also, didn't God visit Abraham?
---Steveng on 12/26/10


Steven G, your whole point was to argue against the Moderator. The mod was correct. Now I gave you Scripture about the angel that wrestled with Jacob, the passage reads,
","The Jacob was left alone, and "a man" wrestled with him until the breaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip"
Now if you read it correctly, it declares it was a man. The moderator is correct and you are wrong. Angels appeared many times in human form, other times they were just messengers or were bringing justice on people.
---Mark_V. on 12/24/10


Mark_V.: "Steven G, let me first say that an angel wrestled with Jacob not with David."

I knew it, but I pressed the send button too early.


Mark_V.: "And the angel was in human form."

It's obvious that you did not look up the verses. Anels cannot take human form, but they surely can appear to be human. Read the verses I wrote.
---Steveng on 12/23/10


Steven G, let me first say that an angel wrestled with Jacob not with David. And the angel was in human form. As spirit he cannot wrestle with anyone for he has no parts.
The passage reads,"The Jacob was left alone, and "a man" wrestled with him until the breaking of day. Now when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the socket of his hip" In order to touch him He had to have hands. In order for a spirit to touch someone or wrestle with someone, he has to be in a human form, for spirits cannot touch anyone. That is why I said they had to possess a human or manifest themselves as humans in order to hold someone down physically. But they can surely hold you down spiritually.

Mark_V., Moderator: Spirits don't have physical bodies so they don't literally hold people down,"

I'm not surprised at both your answers.

Have you not read of David's fight with an "angel?" If an angel can wrestle with David then an angel can surely hold a person down. What about Job's physical sores? The man in the graveyard? Just to name a couple.

---kathr4453 on 12/22/10


Moderator, your answer to Carla was a good answer. Spirits don't have physical bodies so they don't literally hold people down, they do hold them down spiritually. And then you said spirits may work through people which I presume you mean pocess someone, that someone can physically hold you down. I believe I understood exactly what you were saying. And I believe you are right on all counts. As always.

Its amazing that you want to show how much you are knowledgeable about these witches but we are not talking about witches here?

I feel you are siding with the moderators cynical response and so gain brownie points by keeping in with that tread.

That does not take away the the fact demons exist, nor the fact just because it is not your particular experience everyone else who experience demonic activity eat ridiculous foods just before going to bed.

The Salem event was brought on by preaching satan this and satan that than preaching Christ.WARNING!!! Extremely legalistic, the people lived under fear. That alone causes the power of suggestion. One Historians states it was the mother of the main ring leader (girl) who claimed to have been posessed, in order to take some of the blame off her daughter, who many believed was the instigtor. Regardless, these attacks stopped without any casting out of demons. When one of girls accused the wife of the Governor of Mass of being a witch...it all came to a head. The Gov and his wife didn't live in the area.
There are many theories ,..even greed to take property away from widows and daughters who inherited from their deceased fathers/husbands.

No doubt that video will cause what is called Mass hysteria: Mass hysteria
describes mass public near-panic reactions. It is commonly applied to the waves of popular medical problems that "everyone gets" in response to news articles. A similar usage refers to any sort of "public wave" phenomenon, and has been used to describe the periodic widespread reappearance and public interest in UFO reports, crop circles, and similar examples. Hysteria was often associated with events like the Salem Witch Trials.

Demons are more common now than ever before. I watched this video again this evening and a church of Minister challenges the demon but to no avail however shortly after the evil spirit drags the boy off the outside table he is sitting on and then drags him onto the floor under the table.

after seeing for himself that it exists he anoints the boy with oil commanding that no harm should come of him in Jesus name.

a while after the boys stresses that he is no longer afraid as he was and says he just humours it, because he no longer fears it because it does not bother him anymore.

has obviously had no real experience in a medical setting. No medical doctor risks using medication for a suspected appendicitis, instead of surgery.
There is no shame in not knowing something. Just realize that a little theoretical knowledge may easily lead you to a false conclusion.

Donna66: "You would benefit from study of a good anatomy and physiology textbook."

Like most of these people on these blogs, you assume much. I'm not boasting, but I tutored several medical doctors from China for eight years from the time they came into the United States (which isn't too united anymore, eh?) until the time they opened their own practice in the early 2000s. In fact, while attending the graduation of one of my students, the director of the Detroit Medical Center, a training hospital in Michigan where she was an intern, quipped that I could easily pass the USMLE exam which was being held in Chicago at that time. I politely declined saying it's one thing to teach it than to actually perform it.
---Steveng on 12/16/10


Steveng--An inflamed arm is not usually life threatening. There is time for an anti-inflammatory and possibly anti-biotic drug to work. And their effectiveness is easily seen.
The appendix is hidden from view. Inflammation of the appendix is rarely noticed until severe. No anti-inflammatory drug works fast enough ensure the appendix does not rupture.

You would benefit from study of a good anatomy and physiology textbook. The body is too complex for you to figure out, unaided.

Yes, cluny, there is a demon behind every coffee pot and Satan has only a short time left to do all he can to have people turn their backs on God - and you are helping Satan to accomplish his deeds when you apply worldly knowledge to spiritual matters.

Ana you have recieved very good advice on this forum, particularly the advice of Char, Eloy, and, Pharisee, listen well.
Cluny, what is about Catherine that troubles you so? It it that you view her as Paul viewed "a certain damsel" that followed him? Act 16:16
If that is not the case remember the words of Isaiah concerning Jesus "A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench, He will bring forth justice for truth." Isa. 42:3
Catherine is zealous, however I do not believe she is possessed. Be gentle.

Carla, i did stop taking night time cold medicine, and guess what, the demons left. I didn't even have to call on Jesus to cast them out. The Lord just told me to stop taking the over the counter stuff, and it was not a demonic attack.

It's IGNORANCE that blames everything on demons.
---kathr4453 on 12/12/10


It amazes me when Gods people behave so ignorant. It is nothing you have eaten, it is actually a real occurrence that people for no apparent reason actually have happen to them. Hopefully your experience will be short lived otherwise call upon the name of Jesus repeating his name in your head until it leaves. They do come and go.

Recently, after a cold, and using an over the counter cold night time medicine, I'm having sleep issues. What appears to be happening is part of my brain is falling asleep faster than another part and that strange in-between or out of kilter mode is the cause. along with being paralized in body but awake in mind. I can force myself to wake up by focusing on trying to move a part of my body. Once I do that, I walk around, drink some warm milk with a chewable vitiman c.

And in that in-between mode it is like a demonic attack.

Check your diet and what you take before bedtime.

\\Well, I have a testimony of demons. If God will permit me, I am going to put it on here. When I was lost, I had become so overtaken by the devil, just this once.\\

We know, catherine, and things have not improved much with you.

Probably not a demon, just a sleeping problem.

Say your prayers to Jesus before you go to sleep everynight, and specifically ask him to get rid of the nightmares and in their place to give you instead a very good and very deep and very restful sleep.

Well, I have a testimony of demons. If God will permit me, I am going to put it on here. When I was lost, I had become so overtaken by the devil, just this once. My bed was a shaking. I was awake. Demons are real. Stop making jokes. DEMONS ARE NOTHING TO LAUGH ABOUT. anyways, THEY DESIRE YOUR SOULS. Ha.

I used to have those kinds of dreams after watching scary movies. What are you putting in your eyes, ears, and mouth? Does it line up with the Bible? I can tell you it is demons, that you may be allowing into your life by what you watch, listen to, or speak. Also, are you playing with the occult (horoscopes, pyscics, owgie boards)? If so, that may play a role as well. Get rid of those ungodly things that you allow into you, and you will get rid of those dreams.
---Leslie on 12/1/10


Ana, you are in need of deliverance. Your story reminds me of one told by Pastor Lester Summerall and the same situation he ran into in the Philippines.
I would also encourage you to cast these demons away from you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and I would encourage you to speak about study about and meditate on the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Cluny

I understand sleep paralysis is a real condition but I have experienced demonic presences or as the Bible calls it, night terrors.

I agree sometimes people try to put a demonic face on everything negating even there own involvement at times but demonic spirits do buffet, remember Paul's thorn, and we must educate the body on how to deal with it.
---paul on 12/1/10


Pharisee and paul:

I'm not denying there are demonic manifestations, but these are much rarer than many here want to think.

Eliminate all natural causes first before you go looking for demons.
---Cluny on 11/30/10


Is this happening in a semi-sleep state or as you are drifting off to sleep? Some will make lite of this because they don't understand it but I know it is real. I also know satan views you as a threat and is trying to intimidate and control you.What you can do is grow stronger in the Lord and realize your power over him so you can rebuke him in this state. This usually means you will have a delivery ministry of some kind and God is allowing this to grow you into understanding. God Bless, Paul
