Summary: Many people have been exposed to voices, aliens, angels or demons and these messages have confused their ability to discern what is truth. It is important to discern with scripture these communications.
Hearing Heresy? Rebuke It In Jesus Name! Kelly Durant 3-4-18
Galatians 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
Galatians 1:9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
2. How many of you have ever seen a spirit being? Have you talked with that being? How many of you have gone into a trance or been hypnotized? What about being with relatives when they prayed to the dead or did some strange ritual? Or done Santeria or told you about superstitious practices that they claim will get you some results for what you need? Or have you read any books on the esoteric practices of any culture? How about astrology or prophecy books?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you have been exposed to the spirit realm. But the spirits that you often meet are not always looking out for you or God's interests. One of the signs of the endtime is that people will seek out spirits and esoteric experiences. Angels do exist, but demons dressed as angels do too. Is it possible that you have experienced anything that has left a strange impression in your spirit? It is important that you and I remain free and healed from delusions, false visions, and evil communications. We must learn to discern amongst the spirits and it takes knowing God's scripture well, applying prayer, and the company of brothers and sisters who will support you in the things God. You need Christians nearby that can give you Godly advise! Also, many of us have heard many things from churches so we must discern.
1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
3. Satan's power is increasing with many people because we are in the last days and those who will not commit to Jesus are open game as a fortress without walls. But here is where the real power is, in the name of Jesus! When you have the doubt about something, if you feel fear or attacked from the spirit world, you can rebuke in the name of Jesus! The demons will leave when they see they cannot trap you into their labyrinth of mind games, illusive visions, or ugly intrusive thoughts when you call on Jesus. Call on Jesus always!
James 4: 7 'Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you'. If you resist uninvited evil thoughts, sad thoughts, destructive or vengeful thoughts, or strange thoughts like you feel like some extraterrestrial being is talking to you, and you pray, 'Jesus, put these feelings and thoughts away from me, I rebuke Satan and his demons!" he (they) will leave you alone! But it may take repeated prayers and several fights before a total victory comes .
Just remember how it happened to Jesus. Satan came to Jesus during his 40 day fast to tempt him first over his basic needs, then next over pride and power. Satan wanted Jesus to break his commitment first by breaking the fast which was conquering any impurity in his flesh.
4. So Satan, shape shifting into some flesh form, appeared to Jesus when He was extremely hungry, but we see Jesus beat him by will power, something you are going to need to develop as a Christian. How did He answer when Satan said to just make stones into bread? 4 But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.' Answer out loud and talk to these entities! Rebuke back!
Then Satan took him up to the top of a high temple, the motive was to get Jesus to abuse His authority, and you as a Christian are going to need to develop this resistance against being abusive as well. 7 Jesus said to him, "It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the Lord your God.'" When you are tempted you must learn to rebuke applying the Word of God that you memorize or search in the Bible for.
John 4:8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me." 10 Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.'" So Jesus resisted the pride of being worshipped for being ruler over all earthly kingdoms. Imagine if Jesus ever worshipped Satan? That would be the end of humanity's salvation! Be he did not, he resisted the age-old serpent cult creator, the destroyer, the fallen one doomed to a future prison in hell.
