The Spirit of Baal
Baal is identified as the ruler of the demons. Matthew 12:24 (Beelzebub is another name for Baal)
Baal-hamon, one of Baal's names, means "the lord of wealth or abundance." You must war against this spirit to see your inheritance released. Jeremiah 51:44 (Bel in this verse is Baal).
Baal-berith, another of his names, means "the lord of the covenant." The Hebrew word baal actually means "husband" or "marriage." This spirit always attempted to cause Israel to "divorce" or break covenant with God and "marry" or align with him. Consistent with this, in so many ways America has broken covenant with God and married Baal.
Baal is the strongman behind sexual perversion. Homosexuality was and is one of his big strongholds. I believe all of the sexual sin and perversion in America is, to one degree or another, under Baal's orchestration. You will continue to see God expose leaders in the church who aligned themselves with this spirit. Pray for the church to be cleansed and for Baal's hold on America in this area to be broken. Baal always goes after the next generation, trying to cut off the extension of God's covenantal purposes. He is a violent spirit and even required human sacrifice. Abortion is under Baal, as is the "cutting" of today's young generation (1 Kings 18:28), the vampire and gothic movement, and the death culture in general that has so invaded America. Pray against and bind these efforts. Witchcraft and occult spirits in general operate under Baal. So does Jezebel, the spirit that is behind all rebellion.
Nearly all churches have adopted the spirit of Baal. It is critical, dangerous and grave that we know what Baalism is. Today Baalsim has been successfully able to disguise itself so that even the elect of God would be deceived. This false God is held in deception and in secret. It must be exposed as it has nearly destroyed the church, sending many members to hell. Baal was the God of the Canaanites. Baal was called “the God of fertility”. They gave him credit for all reproduction. He was praised for crop production and the weather. This thought was translated into the realm of human reproduction. Public sexual orgies, including Bi-sexual acts where forms of celebration. Loud noises where made at these practices to drown out the noise of unwanted babies, being burned alive. Free sexual acts where causing unwanted children. In order handle this problem they would sacrifice their unwanted children to Baal in worship.
Over the last 50 years there’s been a huge shift within the church. The salvation message has been replaced with positive thinking. Popularity and church growth have become first and knowing Christ and His Word in Obedience is not a priority.
Obeying Christ is how we have the assurance of salvation.
1st John: Chapter 1, 6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
Chapter 2, 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
