the basic prop is a box of kleenexes to catch the demons as they come out!

Troy Day

seems like you are staying away from the NAR topic nowadays What say ye? How can one take over the government without taking over demons first? Isara Mo

Charles Page

The Prince of Peace took over the demons in 70 AD and they are confined under hell arrest!!

The one area I always differ wirh you soldier is your understanding of demons..
Jesus said He came so that we can have life ..and not only that, but He added, life abundant(I believe He was not talking about eternal life but mundane life..)
He had preceeded this statement with the threefold mission of a thief ie to steal, kill and destroy..
Lets assume the thief is in chains( as you clai m) so WHO does ALL these stealings, killings and destruction?
Who activated, engineered and propelled the minds of the young men who cut short 31 innocent, very innocent lives?
If the Prince of Peace took over the demons in 70AD and they are confined under hell why is there NO PEACE?
Because the dude, the devil and his cohorts and some human agents are stocking up the war…

Charles Page

Isara Mo wouldn’t it be nice if we could blame demons for all that is evil in the world?

Charles Page

we could empty all the jails and prisons

Charles Page

There would be no bad preachers just demon-possessed preachers!

Charles Page

we wouldn’t have to block bad post

Charles Page

There would be no cussing, swearing, drug abuse, abortions and women with short hair!

Isara Mo

Soldier I believe If there was no sin there would be no evil, if there was no evil there would be no sin so sin and evil and evil and sin need each other to be functional just like the positive and negative charges in electricity…
The Bible says a person with the SEED of God cannot sin …(what about a person with the seed of Satan?) He surely cannot fail to sin.
We cant blame ALL EVIL on the devil because the devil and his demons cannot force their way into a man unless the man permits them through a door…
So we can blame ALL the evil on the man for permitting the devil(demons) into their courtyards …
Babies dont commit murder…

Charles Page

Isara Mo yet babies are conceived in iniquity and are born sinners

Troy Day

Deliverance Ministries

Deliverance Ministries – A Definition
Deliverance Ministries may have various definitions among Christians. The most common definitions revolve around solving a person’s problems related to demons, spirits, and possession. Those who promote and practice deliverance ministry claim that Christians can be indwelt with demons. In order to be free from addictions, depression, and all sorts of sins that may weigh or afflict the person, the demon must be exorcised. Deliverance ministry claims that this sets the afflicted person free from the “bondage” they are experiencing. It is common for the person to attend a series of “discipleship” classes ending with exorcisms as the form of treatment.

Deliverance Ministry is a contemporary movement that is gaining ground and is crossing denominational lines. Although it is gaining popularity, many Christians are now seeing it as a negative and unbiblical practice that can have serious and disastrous consequences, even though it claims to offer “freedom” to the individual. There are even support groups forming to help people who have been victimized from various deliverance ministries.

Dr. Juncker defines Deliverance Ministry as “the name commonly given to Christian individuals or ministries who believe: (1) that Christians can have demons inside of them; (2) that there are specific methods, techniques, and prayers for discerning the presence of demons and for casting them out; and (3) that such exorcisms are a necessary prerequisite for living a successful and victorious Christian life. Evidence for these beliefs is derived from experience and from a handful of Scriptures that have been taken out of context.” 1

Deliverance Ministries – Demons and the Believer
When we study what the Bible says about demons, it is very clear that Christians cannot be demon possessed. However, the Bible does say that a believer can be oppressed or influenced by a demon. What’s the difference? Possession means that the demon has full control over the person. Examples of this can be found in Matthew 17:14-18 and Luke 4:33-35; 8:27-33. Demon oppression is very different. If a person is oppressed by a demon, that demon influences the person toward sin.

There are no instructions or commands in the Bible to cast a demon out of a believer. Instead, believers are instructed to resist the devil: “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). 1 Peter 5:8-9 says, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

Today’s deliverance teachers often claim that it is a matter of semantics. They say that a Christian cannot be possessed and state that he can be “influenced” or “oppressed” instead. However, their practices are not in agreement. They believe that a Christian can be influenced or oppressed to the point of becoming indwelt with demons with the need to cast them out. They state there is a space inside the believer’s body where a demon can indwell, but the Bible nowhere teaches such specifics.

Believers are a new creation and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, not indwelt by demons. Romans 8:9-11 says, “You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.” The Bible is very clear that believers war with Satan and his demons, but not from within themselves, but rather externally. “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you [God] is greater than the one who is in the world [Satan]” (1 John 4:4).

Chuck Smith explains how proponents of Deliverance Ministry get around these clear verses, “The proponents of this unscriptural doctrine use such terms as Christians being ‘invaded by demons’ rather than demon possessed. This is nothing more than a word game and a smoke screen to hide the scriptural weakness of their position. They also present an illogical supposition that demons can invade or control the mind or body but not the spirit. God’s Word declares that the body is a temple of the Holy Ghost who is in us.” 2

Deliverance Ministries– A Warning
Listen to this account from a prior participant of a deliverance ministry. When asked why he feels the need to warn others about deliverance ministry, he said:

    “I warn that this practice can be paralleled to 2 Peter 2:19 in which a legalistic form of ‘freedom’ is being offered that will only lead to further bondage, ending in futility and disillusionment. It enslaves people to the delusion that they continually need demons cast out of them. This works against the freedom that Christ offers.

“Jesus Christ warned us to watch out for false prophets who can mislead others (Matthew 7:15-23, 2 Peter 2:1-2).

“We must ask ourselves why Jesus would label those who were casting out demons as evildoers? After further examination of what deliverance ministry teaches, compared to the objective truths found in Scripture, it became clear to me that many of the leaders were ‘evildoers.’ Even though they may have been passionate and sincere, they were sincerely wrong. We have been warned in Scripture not to go beyond what is written (1 Corinthians 4:6).

“Deliverance Ministry attacked essential areas of my theology. 1) It denied the person and work of Jesus Christ by teaching that He is weak and cannot protect His own children. 2) It denied the sufficient grace and new creation granted to the believer upon salvation (2 Corinthians 5:17). 3) It ignored Scripture that states the evil one can no longer touch the believer, unless the Lord would allow for the purpose of discipline (1 Corinthians 5:4-5, Hebrews 12:4-7).

“Many believers fail to see God’s sovereign faithfulness and protection found in 1 Corinthians 10:13 which always provides a way out. We are really without excuse, as believers, to blame our behavior on demons.

“John gives us great assurance when he says: ‘We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him” (1 John 5:18). The Greek word for translated as “harm” is hapto. It means “to fasten to.” The evil one cannot fasten to a believer.

“Job is our clearest example of God allowing Satan to torment and oppress. We have been purchased and redeemed through Christ’s sacrifice and are no longer our own (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). We have been called to put to death the sins that can entangle us and to walk by the Holy Spirit who now indwells us. We are called to glorify the Lord with our bodies as living sacrifices (Romans 12:1-2).

“If you are considering becoming involved in a deliverance ministry, I encourage you to study what the Bible says and make an informed decision. Remember, it is Christ and His truth that will set you free (John 8:31-32), not the casting out of demons.”

Deliverance Ministries – The Dangerous Results
A shift of blame: Deliverance ministry shifts the blame for sin, addiction, and other struggles to the demonic. This is an unhealthy and unbiblical way of dealing with sin. Instead, a believer is called to repent and surrender to God. Our wickedness comes from the heart (Mark 7:20-23), as well as from the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21), even without the aid of demons. We are called to «crucify» fleshly desires and reckon them as dead, walking in the strength of the Holy spirit instead (Titus 2:11-14; Galatians 5:24, Colossians 3:3-5).

An unbiblical view of God’s sovereignty and a distorted theology of the Holy Spirit: Deliverance ministries deny the Lord’s power over Satan and actually grant the illusion of Satan having greater strength over the Lord than he really has. Deception has a high price that can enslave many into having a false assurance and relationship with Christ, as spoken from Himself in Matthew 7:15-23. To teach that the Holy Spirit can share the same temple along with demons would certainly be a house divided as well as come dangerously close to blaspheming Christ who indwells the believer (2 Corinthians 6:14-16).

A dangerous preoccupation with the demonic: God calls believers to be preoccupied with Him, not obsessed with things that oppose Him (Romans 8:5-8). Those involved with deliverance ministry have reported that they become dependent on their deliverance minister as the solution to their possession. It fostered paranoia rather than peace and security.

A false view of salvation: Many in the deliverance ministry misunderstand Jesus’ death on the cross. The Bible very clearly says that Christ’s work on the cross was sufficient. Further deliverance is not necessary. To teach otherwise gives the impression that Christ’s work is incomplete.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? — We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, «Jesus is Lord,» you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

Top 5 Best Bed Bug Sprays (**2020 Reviews)

Bed bugs are a flat, oval, rusty color bug that are only found in buildings. They’re more commonly found in homes, but occasionally can infest a building where there are a lot of people, such as a theatre, nursing home, or a hotel. Bed bugs are considered a parasite as they feed exclusively on blood, much like mosquitoes do. Cimex lectuarius is the common bed bug that feeds on humans. There are also other types of similar bugs that feed on animals.

What Causes Bed Bugs?

A bed bug infestation is always near humans. They may occasionally feed on dogs or cats, but only if there is no source of human blood. Bed bugs can be found all over the world, but seem to be cyclical. There has been a sudden increase in the bed bug population of North America in the past decade. This may be due to a large increase in population, and many people disregarding basic hygiene in the home.

Bed bugs normally feed on humans at nighttime without leaving a noticeable bite. A small percentage of people will experience allergic reactions and have large welts or noticeable bites on their skin that can become itchy.

Bed bugs normally live around the warm areas of the home, usually exclusive to the bedroom. They can hide under the frame of the bed or in bedding and pillows. They are often so tiny they can also hide in the cracks of the baseboards.

Bed bugs are more of a nuisance, and they look ugly, and rarely do they transmit diseases like mosquitoes can. Bed bugs can be difficult to eradicate in the home, as they’re so small, and they like to hide during the day. In the past, bed bugs were an accepted part of living. Today, they can make people squeamish.

Bed bugs love to travel, and will hop into your suitcase or backpack to move into a new location and breed. It doesn’t matter how clean you keep your home, bed bugs will move into any place that has humans.

Often bed bugs will quickly infest a home, particularly if people neglect regular cleaning, washing their bedding, or doing a regular inspection for bugs.

What Chemicals Kill Bed Bugs?

If you start seeing bed bugs around your bedroom, or have red welts on your skin, you could have a bed bug infestation. It’s important to immediately eradicate bed bugs as soon as you see them. A really bad infestation can be highly disruptive to your life, and it may even be recommended that your bed and furniture be destroyed, which can be costly.

Fortunately, there are certain chemicals that will destroy bed bugs. There are hundreds of special bed bug sprays, but they will fall into one of seven chemical classes to effectively kill them.

  • Biochemicals.

  1. Follow the directions on the bug spray bottle.
  2. Use gloves if requested.
  3. Be sure to thoroughly clean your room right before, or shortly after you do your first spraying. Vacuuming, washing bedding and pillows will go a long way towards killing any stray bed bugs.
  4. If you are using one of the more powerful bed bug sprays that isn’t naturally-sourced, you may have to close your room’s door for a few hours to let the spray dry. Once it’s dry it’s safe to place fresh sheets on the bed and sleep on it.
  5. Store your bed bug spray in a top shelf away from pets that may chew on the bottle, or small children who may try to play with the bottle.
  6. Store the spray in a dark cupboard away from heat, so that the efficacy of the formula stays good.
  7. Discard the bottle if the expiry date has passed.
  8. Wash your hands after spraying to prevent any allergic reactions.
  9. Do a thorough bug inspection of your room once a week.

The first time you see a bed bug in your home you need to immediately order a bottle or two of bed bug spray. The sooner you can eradicate bed bugs from your home, the sooner your family will be able to get a good night’s sleep.
