This two-part post is designed to help bring awareness to many people regarding falseness that many professed Christians are practicing. Many Christians are engaged in many forms NEW AGE PAGAN and Witchcraft practices. Sadly, along the way with the Demonic forces pulling those strings to get these people deeper into trouble with God!
So let's examine this false forms of ‘healing’ which is called Essential Oils. What many of you don't know about this subject is that it has roots which go way back into ancient ways - ancient Chinese, Egyptian, Greek, Indian and Roman Civilizations. Have you done the research as to where this stems from or did you just once again follow the doctrines of man which make this not fine with God?
Now I know this might upset many but I am here to tell you the truth. So let's examine this Essential Oil aspect. Now medicines were prepared in temples and there was a Greek temple of aromatherapy. Aromatic substances were burnt to ‘appease the gods’ and to channel ‘divine knowledge’.
The Greeks ascribed divine origins to aromatic plants. Did you know the word perfume is derived from the Latin ‘per’ (through) and ‘fumus’ (smoke)? Breathing in wood and resin aromas was believed to drive out demons! Hippocrates (460-370 BC) recommended aromatic baths to prolong life and Pliny recorded therapeutic aromatic oil massages. In the Middle Ages, incense and aromas were used during differing rituals, as perfumes and disinfectants, especially during plagues.
In relating to the biblical times, frankincense, spikenard and myrrh were used for anointing, incense and other religious rituals. However, this is far from the current ‘holistic aromatherapy’ which is taking place with Christian people. The Good Samaritan's oil was more likely to have been olive oil than an aromatic preparation.
Essential oils are highly concentrated substances (such as clove and bergamot) extracted by expression, absorption or distillation from plants and trees. They are labelled essential as they are considered to have a particular, essential relationship with their parent plant. Implications that they are essential for good health which are unjustified. Prominent aroma therapists, however, believe that they contain an essential vital force, life energy or universal cosmic energy, which have New Age, Eastern religious and cultural associations all over this. Does this sound ANYTHING that Christians professed in Christ Jesus are to even go near?
Remember this people - “You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to live, and you must not do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. Do not follow their practices.” Leviticus 18:22
In Practical Aromatherapy, 'Essential oils are so complex and magical that no one knows what they are - sound proper for a Christian to do? Romantics and enthusiasts say they are the life force of the plants similar to the human spirit - sounds very improper to me and is PAGAN. Researchers say they are mixtures of organic compounds such as ketones, terpenes, esters, alcohols, aldehydes and other molecules too small and complex to classify under a ‘microscope'.
Claims are that these benefits depend upon balancing the bodies' vital energy, cosmic energy or life force. That is a HINDU and Eastern Medicine practice. It is stated: 'Essential oils can be used to balance the energy flows of the body in a similar way to acupuncture'. Aromatherapy was based on the same principles as acupuncture (which is an Eastern Medicine and opens you up to Demonic forces), herbal medicine and homeopathy - the balancing of life force or ch'i (yin and yang). So Christians are to blend this ch'i with Christ Jesus and that doesn't sound proper. Aromatic oils were yin or yang in effect with astrological associations influenced by their ruling planets. Still think this is something professed Christians should touch and get involved with?
Here is what you probably did not know - The Essential Oil was created with D. Gary Young, a naturopath physician in the 1980's who worked with a LAKOTAH MEDICINE MAN named Wallace Black Elk. The technique called Raindrop Therapy which incorporates certain Native American concepts including a 'special form' of massage called 'feather stroking'. People this act conjures demons along with a procedure called Vitaflex. This was adapted from ancient oriental which addresses the 'energy flows' within the body. Once again does this sound anything proper that a professed Christian should be doing?
Raindrop Therapy is 'based upon' a theory that the spinal problems as well as many chronic illnesses and discomforts are caused by various viruses and bacteria which lie dormant upon the spine. Now this therapy uses 'specific techniques', 'energy work’ - code for REIKI which is DEMONIC and 'aromatherapy'. In addition, the therapy uses a 'sequence' of these oils - designed by a Medicine Man - a Native American Witch Doctor. These oils are dropped onto the spine from 6 inches above one at a time and worked in with hot towels to help penetrate and relax. People understand this sickness and infirmities come from SIN within one’s LIFE that is why this occurs!! In other words if you get right with God and you probably won't be sick anymore!
So my question is this - Should a Christian use oils designed by a Native American Medicine Man upon their bodies? Does this sound even remotely proper? One is going to put oils formulated by a MEDICINE MAN of Native American culture whose own roots go back to cursing this land and bloodshed? People there are lots and lots of Demons which are behind this!!!
People I cannot even tell you how many cases I have had to work which people had Demonic curses from Native American aspects in which many Demons were engaged and cast out to set these people free!
D. Gary Young of Essential Living oils and some of these other ‘oil’ companies market their oils under Christina banners, but this is plain old witchcraft. It is deceiving too, because Young Living has a DVD that they sell called, “Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture” in which you can purchase along with a kit of those twelve oils (for about three hundred dollars). They are acting like the fact that Christ Jesus was given Frankincense and Myrrh means that all of their practices are fully Biblical, however these practices aren’t biblical.
Here's why. I will prove it. D. Gary Young is the founder of Young Living oils and he is a “professing” Christian. You can find him discussing the twelve oils of Ancient Scripture if you search hard enough. In this article, D. Gary Young talks about the ‘Third Eye’ being opened by the use of essential oils. This is not a Christian belief. It isn’t even a scientific belief. It is only a pagan belief under Witchcraft and Hindu aspects with CHAKRA's!
People I have had to deal with many demonic cases of closing the ‘Third Eye’ with people who have done YOGA and other spiritual healing avenues instead of going to the Lord God Almighty in repentance and prayer. This is just another way for Satan to deceive you.
In part two we shall cover even more!
