Dangerous Practices That Could Be Keeping You From Your Destiny
Aug 21, 2022
THINGS you might not know that are spiritually harming you that most churches are not teaching you:￼
Christianity is not about legalism, it’s about love for God and understanding that if He says no to something, it’s because He is madly in love with you and He knows more than you. Loving God in return means you trust Him - you obey Him.
Our obedience is the evidence that we love Him back. It’s not a ‘have to’… It’s a ‘get to’.￼
If you’re not wanting to let certain things go in your life, you can always find someone who will tell you what you want to hear. People who truly love you, however, will have the guts to tell you the truth and remind you to read the Bible for yourself..keeping it in context.
If you read your Bible and understand God loves you, you will also understand these are some of things that are not of God and He wants them out of your life...for YOUR GOOD. He’s loves you enough to tell you the truth. ￼
If your church or friends are telling you these are OK, then I would suggest you run and find a new church or new friends as fast as you can. Those are not true friends… I would call them Frienemies, wolves in sheep's clothing, or at the very least, dangerous people severely lacking discernment.￼
If you’re not wanting to get rid of certain things, I challenge you to have the guts to ask yourself why not? Something has a hold of you or you would willingly release it if there was even a slight chance it disappointed God.￼
The church does a poor job of educating us and protecting us against things the world says is ok. I have seen every one of these things IN THE CHURCH! It grieves God that His bride is sleeping with the world like a whore.
Here are just SOME things that are not of God that could be keeping you from Gods best for you.
>>Tarot cards, palm reading, fortune telling, astrology, ghost hunting, vampires, Halloween and even horoscopes. - have you ever said "it’s just for fun"? It’s witchcraft, it represents evil, it’s divination, and ALL divination is forbidden by God. God even put king Saul to death for consulting a medium and gave his kingdom to David.
>>Harry Potter, Pokémon, and Ouija boards - have you ever said "It’s just a game" or "It's just a book"? It’s witchcraft, divination and playing with demons. I am utterly appalled at the churches and the Christians who justify these things. The entire Harry Potter series is about witchcraft. What don’t you understand about God hating everything to do with witchcraft??!! It’s NOT harmless and He would NEVER justify it and say go ahead and use it for entertainment. He utterly hates it, and hates that you allow your children to be entertained by it and exposed to it and the demons surrounding it.
God would NEVER use something He says is evil for good purposes. ￼￼That’s like having your kids smoke crack to teach them that crack is bad. Go with me for a second….Does God hate witches and witchcraft? Does Harry Potter include witches and witchcraft? What don’t you understand? Ugh and by the way, there’s no such thing as a good witch! Witchcraft is an abomination to God. Period.
>>Speaking to the “universe”. Sounds nice, but relying on anything but God after He sent His one and only Son to die an excruciating death for you on the cross, is idolatry. And by the way… He holds the universe in the palm of his hand. Why speak to the universe when you can speak to the one who not only holds it, but the one who created it?
>>Day of the dead - It’s OK to love the memory of those who have died, but it’s totally unbiblical to pray for someone after they have died. (Hebrews 9:27)￼Stop saying you just like the decor of the skulls. It represents death and it comes from a belief system that you can pray for people's salvation after they die, and you can't. It's against God, and keeping that decor up is like being married and keeping pictures of your Ex up around the house - do you think your spouse would be pleased? Then why do you throw a false belief system that could be giving people a false sense of hope up in God's face?
>>Good luck - no such thing as luck. There is good and there is evil. There is heaven and there is hell. There is no luck… There are choices.￼Saying "good luck" absolves people from responsibility and gives a false sense that everything will be ok without any involvement on their part. We have been given the power to choose, the power to pray, and the power - through faith - to destroy the works of the enemy.
>>Yoga - have you ever said it’s just stretching? Yoga is spiritually seductive and is a Hindu practice. Yoga means to unite (become one with) and you take on the form of some of their 3 million gods.￼ Derek Prince used to practice yoga before he became a Christian, and he said it was the hardest demon to get rid of. He spent about 40 years of his life teaching about Deliverance, so I think he knows what he’s talking about. Look him up on YouTube. If yoga really is just stretching, why not just stretch? Why take on the form of other gods?
>>Karma. People believe this is a harmless word, but it actually comes from Hinduism and Buddhism. Here is the definition in the dictionary: (in Hinduism and Buddhism) “the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.” - This is very unscriptural for so many reasons! Here are the main 2 reasons: 1. Your previous state was with God and you don’t get to decide fate. 2. This refers to reincarnation, which is completely unbiblical. Instead, the Bible says God will not be mocked and a man will reap what he sows. It means your choices will result in a manifestation that aligns with your choices. If you sow good, you will reap good. If you sow evil, you will reap evil.￼￼
… So many other things. These are just really obvious ones that most people blow off that really matter to God because the root of them is evil.
Before you make some argumentative post, ask yourself why you want to defend them… if according to you, they are no big deal, why can’t you let them go? (Because they have a hold of you)
The things I have mentioned are just SOME of the doors that allow demons into your life to torment you, steal from you, destroy your relationships, your health, distract you from your destiny, etc. If we are resistant or unwilling to let something go, then that thing has a grip on us.
If you need help with any of these things, please reach out to me. God wants you set free. It starts by acknowledging, repenting, and asking God to help you. Whom the Son (JESUS) sets free is free indeed, and not a slave to these things. ￼
Why not let these things go today? What do you have to lose, except demonic activity in your life? You just might experience freedom like you’ve never known, and be blessed above and beyond all you could ask or imagine!
