Is Levitation Demonic

My husband has a friend who he says is "spiritual" and he once saw him "self-levitate" for 5 seconds!! I told my husband it's satanic but he says "where in the Bible do you find that?", how do I answer him?

I will say the same thing I've said about any other unusual sign, be it healing, levitation, tongues, prophecy, or whatever:

What DOCTRINE comes with it?

And what is the fruit in the lives of the l involved.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

My father and i went for a walk. he could not walk very far and complained of pain in his hips. We returned to his trailer.When praying a second time for my father with my fingers on his hips,I commanded his hips to align with his back and legs and for the arthritis to leave his body,then went into praying in tongues. My eyes were closed but my father began to levitate and was healed in his hips. I praise Jesus Christ !

Read Deuteronomy 26: 9-14. There is one way to GOD and tat is through His son JESUS. So if he is "spiritual" and not filled with the HolySpirit, then thats of the enemy. Remember 2 corinthians 10:3-5
---Eric on 9/26/14


Our faith is in the Word of God, not faith in faith itself. What scripture are you putting your faith in that you may self- levitate at your own time and will? Yes Peter walked on water, at the command of Jesus to Peter for that moment.

If The Lord perhaps physically lifts you up over something, it will be to your surprise, not your willing it so by mustering up enough faith to do so. This whole concept is not of The Lord, expecting God to jump at your command.

Not everything supernatural is spiritual. Satan is capable of many supernatural things trying to hoodwink you into believing it is of God. Anti-Christ will also do many wonders that hopefully you will not fall for just because it is supernatural.
---kathr4453 on 9/7/14


The assumptions of Enoch and Elijah, the assumption of Jesus, and perhaps even Jesus's ability to walk on water are some spectacular Biblical examples of levitation.
---StrongAxe on 9/2/14




-Jim_Langston on 9/1/14: The levitation issue is one I do not want to enter, because one never knows what it really does.....

What it does means what is the real purpose of it? When you levitate, is there a good reason to do that?

Of course, the same was the issue of speaking in tongues that Paul does not exactly criticise the Corinthians for, but does seem to somehow dislike their speaking in tongues - for the same reason: that speaking in tongues, as well, was not 'doing anything for someone'

\\Just because one has a high ranking title of a denominational church it doesn't mean that person is a christian. Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing. //

I can levitate, but I'm not sure if it's forbidden.
From what I read in Deuteronomy it does not seem to fall there: [KJV] Deuteronomy 18:10-11 "Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead."

It's coming from faith not of spirits as far as I know.
[KJV] Mathew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place, and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
So, I'm not sure.

Mary....That is one example why you should be very careful who prays for you. Since the Bible says that a drunkard would not inherit the kingdom of God, then he should not be allowed to pray for you.

Hi Lidia, I agree with you, I was also angry with this guy because my husband is an alcoholic who has relapsed since treatment--and he had a little of this guy's vodka--grrrr!!!!

Hello,Mary...bless you. Listen ,) the man who came to your home could be well meaning,but wrong...
the Bible talks re: strong drink is a mocker Pro.20:1, Ep.5:18
honestly he could be well meaniing but,wrong... the bible talks about " the strong man" read Lk.11:21, 22.
Here Jesus Christ speaking re: also occult practices. Read Lk.11:23,24,25,26.

The man can be well meaning but, if ( somebody NEW not a christian or not saved) this bad testimony or guest appears....your home.
seasoned christian avid bible scholar may have given him " a biblical rebuke" ... pray for him.
This brother can be delivered from this bondage.

shira4368: "Steven has a good idea where 3 or more meet for bible study."

Actually, we do not "study" the bible, per se. We do read the bible to the young folks. Most of the time we're extrememly active in our love for others - feeding the poor, give clothing to the poor, give drink to those that are thirsty. Most of the time we do it as an individual and sometimes we do it as a group. When we gather together - usually about a dozen or so including families - we talk about certain needs of ourselves and of others, pray, sing songs, etc. In essence, just enjoy the spirit of God.

There is to be a time when true christianity will be forced underground as in China. It's going to happen sooner than you think.

Hello,Sis.Mary, It done with the aid of spirits! Demons,,yes! Levitation is against the Bible teachings! It' against God...1Pet.5:8 Gal.1:6,7. Ex.20:3-5a. Rom.1:25 (my point here Ex.22:18 Jer.27:9a. This is under Sorcery' forbidden by God.

Somebody said " If Jesus did not do it, or God is not the Author of it! Then it is errant,wrong and of Satan".

Levitation Is related to Witchcraft, Sorcery...1Tim.4:1,this is worship with demons 1Cor.10:14b,vs.20.

micha9344: "Steveng, on the other hand, seems to believe it to be a corporate entity with the "Christian" label attached to it. Hence, the Orthodox Church is a "denomination" to him."

It's not what I "seem to believe," it's what the laws dictates. Denominational, even your so-called nondenominational, churches are owned by the government. In order to keep their tax exempt status, they must obey certain laws. The government is now demanding what the churches can and cannot preach to keep their tax exempt status. Instead of looking at your church's financial statement or tax records investigate IRS Form 990 which shows each non-profit corporation in complete financial detail.

It's is hard to have a reasonable discussion while having different understandings of relevant words, such as "denomination."
Cluny seems to understand that it applies when separations happen. Hence, the body with which Steveng congregates is a "denomination" in his view.
Steveng, on the other hand, seems to believe it to be a corporate entity with the "Christian" label attached to it. Hence, the Orthodox Church is a "denomination" to him.
So, I suggest that an agreement on "denomination" would be wise, more than likely in a general sense, and then see where it applies.
---micha9344 on 2/25/14


Cluny: "No. That's why I'm Orthodox. We're PRE-denominational. Everyone else, including you, is denominational."

Does your church own property made by the hands of man? Do your church elders wear clothing as of those of a rich man? pagan head dresses? art treasures? furniture? stocks and bonds? a tax free corporation?

Then you are definately a denominational church.

Cluny: "\\Would your church sell all of its possessions to feed the poor?\\

The true church of Christ does not have buildings or worldly possessions.

Besides, I was talking about your church's possession not personal possessions.
---Steveng on 2/24/14


\\Does one need to be a member of a denomination to follow Christ?\\

No. That's why I'm Orthodox. We're PRE-denominational. Everyone else, including you, is denominational.

Cluny: "Just like you do, Steveng, when you claim your church is neither denominational nor of this world.

But nobody is fooled."

Does one need to be a member of a denomination to follow Christ? The ultimate commandment is LOVE - genuine, unconditional love. Christianity is a lifestyle. Material possession do not spread the gospel.

Would your church sell all of its possessions to feed the poor? No, they would not. They must guard their worldly possessions to the death.

The true church of God does not need worldly possession to spread the gospel. Preaching the word of God is on a personal level.
---Steveng on 2/23/14


I can't begin to understand why some here have so much trouble with other peoples denominations. I trust God enough to believe no matter where we are He can find and guide us into the path we need to follow. Our lives aren't to be spent bothering about others church but serving God with prayer and praise. If we do that at all times as the Bible tells us to we don't have time to think about the mundane things we come in contact with. God help us all not to be busy bodies and meddle in others choices. If someone is misguided pray for God to show them and share His Word not your opinion. Love one another,love is patient and kind not hard to others.

Remember: united we stand, divided we fall.

Satan's very good at deceiving, dividing, and destroying God's people in order to defeat the purpose of God. Some say I am a Baptist, I am a Catholic, I am Orthodox, I am Lutheran. It the same argument Paul was abmonishing to the christians at Corinth. (Corinthians Chapter 1, especially verse 12) Do you not know that denomination means divide?

My church is not of this world. Christianity, in fact, is a lifestyle, not a denomination. The church ARE the christians, not a building to go to.

Bible says Jesus "walked on water". don't you believe Jesus can do what He wants?-shira4368

Thank you for the nugget. Let me share a nugget that requires a little more digging.

The greek scripture uses the word 'epi'...as in epidermis, translated as on and directly over. Yes jesus can still waters and does, but in that 'epi'sode, he had not yet. That is the point...Peter (we all can) could do what jesus does if we keep our focus on jesus not the storms around (or maybe innocuous jokes). If we focus on 'the Bible', we may just miss the Truth.

And I do not believe that jesus can do what he wants. Jesus has to do what his father wills. He himself said that while praying to his father in the garden of gethsemane.
---aka on 2/20/14


Steven, if you aren't a worldly denomination, then do you believe what all denominations believe? A generic church is a melting pot for all beliefs. If you look at my church you know what I believe but I can't tell what you believe. Do you even go To church? I do know some of your beliefs are the same as mine.

---aka on 2/19/14


shira4368,
I am sorry I forgot quote marks in quoting aka. At any event I know Jesus walked on water.

As we walk on ground, we are suspended by gravity and the earth. Walking over a well frozen lake
we are suspended by the hard water, "Ice". If not for the ice we would sink..., it suspends us abobe
the water.

Of course, Jesus did not need Ice to walk over water and just as he commanded the storm, he commanded
gravity and water that they would not affect him.

aka was just being funny and I found his comments to be so.

But, I challenge you and your husband to do some real Internet research and study of demon spirits and of the fallen angels and of the Occult. They are all tied together.

The bible has many warnings. Witchcraft, occult are a couple that are very important. We are warned against playing in the fire.
---shira4368 on 2/17/14


I believe it to be demonic. There are signs and wonders associated with scripture, not necessarily for us to use today, but are biblical nevertheless but there are other things which are not scriptural so should be avoided I feel. Some things the bible does warn against e.g. fortune telling, tarot cards, palmistry etc.

Some signs and wonders are from occultish religions which have their origins with Satan.

There might be no clarity in the bible about this particular activity (although it sounds like Witchcraft to me) but anything which brings about doubts are best avoided until proven to be of God.

Once we dabble in Satanic things it can be difficult to extricate ourselves.
