“What about Demons & the NT Born Again? – 201” …Blog. [2/2]

“What about Demons & the NT Born Again? – 201” …Blog. [2/2]

*** (Acts 19:13-to-20) Then some Jews who went around trying to drive out demons attempted to use the name of the Lord Jesus on those who had evil spirits, saying, "I command you by that Jesus whom Paul preaches!"
(Act 19:14) Seven sons of a Jewish high priest named Sceva were doing this.
(Act 19:15) But the evil spirit said to them, "I know Jesus, and I am acquainted with Paul, but who are you?"
(Act 19:16) Then the man with the evil spirit jumped on them, got the better of them, and so violently overpowered All of them that they fled out of the house Naked and Bruised.
(Act 19:17) When this became known to everyone living in Ephesus, Jews and Greeks alike, fear came on all of them, and the name of the Lord Jesus began to be held in high honor.
(Act 19:18) Many who became believers kept coming and confessing and telling about their practices.
(Act 19:19) Moreover, many people who had practiced occult arts gathered their books and “Burned” them in front of everybody. They estimated the price of them and found they were worth 50,000 silver coins.
(Act 19:20) In that way the Word of the Lord kept: Spreading and Triumphing.

Did You “Read & Understand”… the previous blog on this topic? Without a proper background in the Scriptures, the Holy Word of GOD… further discussion will only confuse You! All Truth about this issue of demons… “MUST” have the Truth found in the Holy Word of God! Often times, I will ask, “Please, can You provide, ‘Bible Chapters & Verses’… to validate what “You have just Said & Taught”…? If they cannot or will not… ‘Identify’ them as  “False Teachers!” Those MANY are simply teaching False Doctrine and NOT what the Holy Word of God, “Teaches!” Remember Satan is the “Father of All LIES!” He will always take some “Partial Truth” and then mix in his “LIES!” In his interaction with, Christ Jesus… Satan often Chose NOT to quote the “Entire Text!” Did You notice in the Above Text: “Acts 19:13-to-20”… that a ‘Revival’ took place? The people actually LEFT their Occult Practices and Burned them!

*** (Romans 6:1-2) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
(Rom 6:2) God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

*** (Proverbs 28:13) He who covers his “Sins” shall NOT be blessed; but whoever confesses and leaves [Forsakes] them shall have mercy.

*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation; as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you; according to the wisdom given to him.
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things ‘hard’ to be understood, = which the ‘unlearned’ and ‘unstable’ = “Pervert”; = as also they do the rest of the = “SCRIPTURES”; = to their own destruction. [1Corinthains 16:22]

“Pick & Choose ‘Christian’s’? – 101”
What about those Scriptures, “Mark 16:15-to-18”…? that… speak about Believers, Casting out Demons, Drinking Poison and Handling Snakes…? Often times, people [Christians?] will read these verse and NOT Compare them: with Any Other Bible Verses. This type of ‘Pick & Choose’ Christianity [?] will simply leave one… “Wrong and Void”… of the totality of the Holy Word of God. For example, Christ Jesus & His disciple healed… to validate their Message of the Kingdom of God. Today, there are many “Pseudo Christians [?]” preaching healing for today. Physical Healing is NOT promised to the NT Born Again! A Spiritual Healing is… “Only IF”… One believes on the Finished Work of Redemption, by Christ Jesus! Can You quote from memory… “John 7:38-39”… and its Requirements…? The Key is, “As the Scripture has said!”

*** (John 7:38-39) The one who believes in Me [Jesus], as the Scripture has said, will have rivers of living water flowing from his heart."
(John 7:39) Now He [Jesus] said this about the Spirit, whom those who were believing in Him were to receive. For the Spirit was Not yet present, because Jesus had Not yet been glorified.

*** (John 5:39-40) You examine the Scriptures carefully because you suppose = that in them you have eternal life.  Yet they testify about Me [Jesus].
(John 5:40) But you are ‘NOT’ willing to come to Me [Jesus] to have life.

*** (John 6:44) No man can come to Me [Jesus], except the Father [God] which has sent Me draw [Compel] him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

*** (John 6:37) All that the Father [God] gives Me [Jesus]; shall come to Me, and the one who comes to Me; I will in No way cast out.

*** (2Timothy 2:25-26) in meekness instructing those who oppose, if perhaps God will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth,
(2Tim 2:26) and that they awake out of the snare of the Devil, having been taken captive by him, so as to do the will of that one.

“What is ‘Salvation?’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (Mark 16:15) And He [Jesus] said to them, Go into all the world, proclaim the gospel to All the creation. [Luke 24:44-to-48]
(Mark 16:16) He who believes [John 7:38-39] and is baptized [1Corinthains 12:13] will be saved, but he who does Not believe [1Corinthains 16:22] will be condemned.
(Mark 16:17) And miraculous signs will follow to those believing these things: in My name they will cast out demons; they will speak new tongues;
(Mark 16:18) they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them. They will lay hands on the sick, and they will be well.

What do the rest of the Scriptures say about this…? Are these “Commands or Options”…? Many of the Original Codex’s do NOT contain these verses. They were added by the translators. “Codex Sinaiticus”   But for discussion, let’s look at the rest of the Scriptures and what they teach about each of these topics?

… Is that One “BAPTISM”… The Holy Spirit Baptism, “1Corithains 12:13”… or is it ‘SIMPLY WATER’, which ONLY gets one Wet…? Please Answer… “Yes or NO”…?

*** (1Corinthains 12:13) For also by one Spirit we are all baptized [1Corinthians 12:13] into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free, even all were made to drink into one Spirit. [John 7:38-39 & Acts 15:8-9]

*** (Titus 3:5) NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,

*** (1Corinthains 1:17) For Christ did ‘NOT’ send me [Paul] to Baptize; but to Preach the gospel; not in wisdom of words; lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.

*** (Romans 11:6) But if by grace, then it is no more of works; otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it is of works, then it is no more of grace; otherwise work is no more work.

*** (Matthew 16:4) A “Wicked and Adulterous” generation seeks after a SIGN. And there shall NO sign be given to it, Except the sign of the prophet Jonah. And He left them and went away.

*** (John 20:29) Jesus said to him, Thomas, because you have seen Me you have believed. Blessed are they who have NOT seen and have believed.

The NT word translated into English for “TONGUES”… is the Greek NT word for “KNOWN LANGUAGES”! There are ‘Tongues’ being practiced… in MOST of the “FALSE Heathen Religions” of the World. ALL Major FALSE World Religions have ‘Tongues’ in their religious services. That is Not to say All… in Each and Every Service! The Shinto in Japan, = the Islamic in most of Asia, = the African Tribal Religions, = the Buddhist monks = and the list goes ON and On and on…!

TRUTH about Speaking in Tongues - JOHN MACARTHUR 1 of 22

What about ‘Casting out Demons’…? (Acts 19:13-to-20) Who do You know that has: “Cast Out Demons…? After reading… “Acts 19:13-to-19… do You really want to try, “Casting out Demons”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…? What about “Drinking Poison”…? Perhaps You should read, what Christ Jesus told Satan… “Matthew 4:6 & Luke 4:12”…? After reading these Bible verses, do You really want to “Tempt God”…? Please answer, “Yes or NO”…?

*** (1Jn 5:19) We know that we are of God; and “ALL” the world: lies in Evil.

“Satan is ‘Alive & Well’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 8:44) You belong to your father the devil; and ‘You’ want to carry out the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning; and has never stood by the Truth; since there is “No Truth” in him. Whenever he tells a Lie, he speaks in character; for he is a Liar and the “Father of LIES!”

*** (Proverbs 12:22) Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.

“Satan said, ‘You’ are “Not” doing ‘Enough for JESUS’ – 101” …Blog.

*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, are not of the flesh but under the control of the Spirit; since God's [Holy] Spirit lives in you. And if anyone ‘does NOT’ have the Spirit of Christ, he does = ‘NOT’ = belong to Him.

*** (1Jn 4:4) You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, because He, [Romans 8:9] Who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. [Satan]

“Satan” has absolutely… “NO AUTHORITY”… over those Born Again… “UNLESS”… they are… “In ‘Direct’ DISOBEDIENCE”… to God's HOLY WORD...!
“Satan & the NT ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog. [1/2]

*** (2Timothy 2:15) STUDY EARNESSTLY to present yourself to God as an approved worker who has nothing to be ashamed of, handling the Word of TRUTH: with Precision.
(2Tim 2:16) However, avoid pointless discussions. For people will become more and more ungodly,

"What about Demons & the NT Born Again? – 101” …Blog. [1/2]

“What about Demons & the NT Born Again? – 101” …Blog. [1/2]

*** (Ephesians 6:10-to-13) Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty strength.
(Eph 6:11) Put on the whole armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the devil's strategies.
(Eph 6:12) For we do NOT wrestle against flesh and blood, but against Principalities, against Powers, against the world's Rulers, of the darkness of this age [Luke 4:6], against Spiritual Wickedness in high places.
(Eph 6:13) Therefore take to yourselves the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done ‘All’, to stand. [1Jn 5:19]

*** (Acts 16:16-to-19) And as we went to prayer, it happened that a certain girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much gain by divining.
(Acts 16:17) The same followed Paul and us and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the Most High God, who are announcing to us the way of salvation.
(Acts 16:18) And she did this many days. But being distressed, and turning to the demonic spirit, Paul said, I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her! And it came out in that hour.
(Acts 16:19) And when her masters saw that the hope of their gain went out, having seized Paul and Silas, they dragged them to the market before the rulers.

*** (Mark 1:34-35) And He [Jesus] healed many who were sick of different diseases, and cast out many demons. And He [Jesus] did Not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him [Jesus].
(Mark 1:35) And rising up quite early in the morning, He [Jesus] went out and went away into a deserted place, and He was praying there.

First, did You notice… that I use the term: NT Born Again and NOT the term “Christian”…? The “MANY” that Christ Jesus spoke about in… “Matthew 7:21-22-23”… are here with us today! “MANY’ do NOT know their Bible, but claim to know Him! “MANY” take Bible verses: out of context to make a point about demons? “MANY” blame their “Sinful Choices” and their “Walking in the Flesh”… simply to the cause of Demons! Have You ever seen an unruly child, who seems not to be controlled by their parent [‘s] seem to be… “Demon Controlled?” Their lack of “Parental Discipline” simply allowed the Child: to do what they wanted: without any control! Most of the Children in America, who are given ‘Pharmaceuticals’ to control their “ADD, ADHD and the Like!” Do these children have “Demons”… or is it simply, “The Parents Non-Discipline”…? I have friends who allow their children to “Talk Back” and them “Demand Things” of their Parents! What is wrong with that Picture…?

*** (Proverbs 19:18) Chasten your son while there is hope, and do Not set your soul on making him die.

*** (Proverbs 23:12) Apply your heart unto instruction, and your ears to the words of knowledge.
(Pro 23:13)  Do NOT Withhold correction from the child: for if you beat him with the rod, he shall Not die. [Spank!]
(Pro 23:14) You shall beat him with the Rod, and shall deliver his soul from Hell.

*** (Deuteronomy 21:18-to-21) If a man has a son who is stubborn and rebels, who will Not obey his father's voice or his mother's voice, even when they have chastened him he will Not listen to them,
(Deut 21:19) then his father and his mother shall lay hold on him and bring him out to the elders of his city, and to the gate of his place.
(Deut 21:20) And they shall say to the elders of his city, this son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey our voice. He is a glutton and a drunkard.
(Deut 21:21) And ‘All’ the men of his city shall stone him with stones so that he dies. So shall you put evil away from you, and ALL Israel shall hear and fear.

*** (Ecclesiastes 8:11) Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily; therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do Evil.

*** (Isaiah 26:10) Let favor be shown to the wicked; ‘Yet’ he will ‘NOT’ learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal ‘unjustly’, and ‘Will Not’ behold the majesty of Jehovah the LORD.

*** (Jeremiah 13:23) Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard its spots? Then you also may do good; who are ‘Accustomed’ to: Doing Evil!

*** (Judges 2:10) And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them –> which knew NOT: the LORD, Nor yet the works which He had done for Israel.

When children are raised by a “Care Giver”… how then are they to learn “Discipline”…? Dare that ‘Care Giver’… “Spank your Child”…? Surely you would have them in “Court & then in Jail!” What You won’t do for “Love”… You expect a ‘Care Giver’ to do for “Money”…? These children grow into Adults: or should I say “Adult Bodies?” The Minds, Will & Emotions are still “Child Like & Adolescent!” Did You know the Bible speaks of these in… “2Timothy 3:1-to-7”… and other Bible verses. If You say You know Christ Jesus, surely You have seen them, “While Reading & Studying His Holy Word?” When was the last time “You”: read thorough the ‘Entire Bible’…? Adult Maturation is a process and does Not happen overnight. Mushrooms grow up seemingly overnight, but “Oak Trees take Years!” Have You ever wondered why, “Furniture is Not made from Mushrooms”…? What happens when You FAIL: to train your Children… According to the Holy Word of GOD…? And as a result of “Non–Parenting”: Over “55,000,000 Million Innocent Babies… are Murdered by their American Mothers… by Abortion!  But save the “Whales, Polar Bears & Stray Pets”… BUT: “Kill the Unborn Babies”…? And You want to blame all this on “Demons”…? What is wrong with that “Word Picture”…?

*** (Exodus 20:13) You shall NOT Murder the Innocent!

*** (Genesis 4:10) And He [God] said, What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries to Me [God] from the ground. [James 5:4]

*** (Galatians 5:16-to-21) I say, then, Walk in the Spirit and you shall Not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. [Romans 8:9]
(Gal 5:17) For the flesh lusts [wars] against the Spirit, and the Spirit [wars] against the flesh. And these are contrary to one another; lest whatever you may will, these things you do.
(Gal 5:18) But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. [Luke 6:46]
(Gal 5:19) Now the works of the flesh are clearly revealed, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lustfulness,
(Gal 5:20) idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, fightings, jealousies, angers, rivalries, divisions, heresies,
(Gal 5:21) envyings, murders, drunkennesses, revelings, and “Things Like These”; of which I tell you before, as I also said before, that they who Do such things shall Not inherit the kingdom of God. [1Corinthains 16:22 & Revelation 20:15]

If You are old enough… You remember the comedian, “Flip Wilson” and his phrase, “The Devil mad me do IT!” Mocking the Holy Word of God, he and others “Laughed” at what the Holy Word of God: Teaches! The Devil cannot make anyone do anything. He tricked Eve and of course his “Methodology” has Not changed! So long as he can get Anyone to question the “Complete Authority”, he has a stronghold in your ‘Thought Processes!” Why do You think, Christ Jesus simply said to him… “It is Written”…? He Christ, stood on the Complete Authority of the Holy Word of God! If You do Not hold to the Holy Word of God… perhaps Satan has “You also Fooled?”

“It is Written – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Timothy 2:13-14) For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
(1Tim 2:14) And Adam was NOT Deceived, but the woman being Deceived was in the Transgression.

*** (Genesis 3:4-to-7) And the serpent said to the woman, You shall not surely die,
(Gen 3:5) for God knows that in the day you eat of it, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as God, knowing good and evil.
(Gen 3:6) And when the woman Saw that the tree was Good for food, and that it was Pleasing to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make Wise, she took of its fruit, and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.
(Gen 3:7) And the eyes of both of them were opened. And they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made girdles for themselves.

*** (Mark 7:6-7-8) He [Jesus] told them, "Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites. As it is written, 'These people honor me with their Lips: –> but their Hearts are far from Me [God].
(Mark 7:7) Their worship of Me is empty: –> because they teach human rules as doctrines.'
(Mark 7:8) You ‘Abandon’ the commandment of God: –> and Hold to ‘human’ tradition."

*** (2Corinthains 10:3-to-6) Of course, we are living in the flesh, but we do not fight in a fleshly way.
(2Cor 10:4) For the weapons of our warfare are not those of the flesh. Instead, they have the power of God to demolish fortresses. We tear down arguments
(2Cor 10:5) and every proud obstacle that is raised against the knowledge of God, taking every thought captive in order to obey Christ.
(2Cor 10:6) We are ready to punish every act of disobedience [Romans 6:1-2 & Proverbs 28:13] when your obedience is complete. [1John 1:5-to-10]

“Whose your ‘Daddy’ – 101?”…Blog.

About now, You may be wondering about… “Real Demonic Oppression”…? Perhaps You should be, “Prayerfully Reading & Studying” your Bible? Oh yes, a Real Born Again Child of GOD, cannot be oppressed by “Satan or Demons!” There are MANY False, Pastors, Preachers, Teachers, Evangelists, False Apostles & False Prophets… teaching a Myriad of False Doctrine. I even had a Preacher tell me on the phone: that takes Demons on to “Himself from Others” & then Casts them Out of Himself!” When I shared1Jn 4:4 & Romans 8:9”… he hung up on me! If You really want to know, the Sign Gifts were given to Christ Jesus & His Apostles to Validate what they said was True! Even the Apostle Paul LOST his Apostolic Gift of Healing when he left Trophimus at Eiletum… “2Timothy 4:20”…!

*** (1Jn 4:4) You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He [Romans 8:9] that is in you, than he [Satan] that is in the world. [1Jn 5:19]

*** (2Timothy 4:20) Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick.

*** (Matthew 16:4) A Wicked and Adulterous generation seeks after a SIGN. And there shall NO sign be given to it, Except the sign of the prophet Jonah. And He [Jesus] left them and went away.

*** (John 20:29) Jesus said to him, Thomas, because you have seen Me [Jesus] you have believed. Blessed are they who have NOT seen and have believed.

*** (Acts 17:11) These people were more receptive than those in Thessalonica. They were very willing to receive the message, and every day they carefully examined the Scriptures to see if those things were so. [Or NOT!]
