Issue 38 – Chip Coffey's Tighty Whities in a Twist/Exposing Fake Demonologists – Part 3

The world was exposed to more proof that Mr. Coffey is not as good of a psychic/medium as he claims. This week on his Facebook page he wrote:

"Just heard that another TV psychic/medium has been making some nasty comments about me. Waaaaaay uncool and unprofessional!"

Why did he have to hear this from others? It seems that all the big events in Mr. Coffey's life come to him as a surprise! Shouldn't his gift be telling him of this person's actions? And the reader is never told who said it and what were the nasty comments? How the heck is it unprofessional to point out if somebody is doing wrong?

Mr. Coffey left this as his top comment for nearly 24 hours so the world could see that he had about 658 of his paranormal back scratchers' shaking their fists in the air. Was this done to scare others to say stay quiet or you'll get the same treatment? What a sad commentary from one who says he is against bullying. Yet he's basically doing the same thing.

Exposing Fake Demonologists – Part 3

It's important to note that Christ was not like any normal child. He was human of flesh and bone yet He had the wisdom and the spark of God inside His spirit and soul. He knew all about the powers of darkness and the wrath of the lesser gods toward our Lord the most high. For more about this, read the Infancy Gospel of Thomas.

Note: I'm not putting it on the same level of the Holy Scripture, but it allows the seeker of the truth some insights to events that would later unfold in the life of Christ. We see that Christ understood from the moment of His birth that He was at war with the powers of darkness.

Matthew Chapter 4 focuses on Christ's time in the wilderness and His 40 days and nights of temptation that he had to overcome to move onto his next mission. These events are an important marker to any light worker as prior to your mission in this field and even during it [especially during a confrontation with demons] you'll be tempted by the demons. Your burdens and shortcomings from your sins will be exposed. Or they will make tempting offers of wealth and powers in this world and the worlds to come. You'll be faced by temptation just as Jesus was.

In Matthew Chapter 8 we learn two important lessons:

1 Christ heals the leper and tells him not to brag about it and not tell anyone. Some might teach that Jesus didn't want others to know who He was and what powers He commanded even at this point in His life. Those with spiritual eyes knew who He was on both sides [the light and the darkness]. Far too often people celebrate being healed and being delivered from the powers of darkness. What happens is the focus shifts away from the healing and who did it and the focus ends up being oh, aren't I special because I've been healed.

2 Christ's encounter with the centurion who understood that Christ's words are commands that carry authority. Whether it is sickness, death and evil it had to respond to those words but this tricks up many of the fakers.

What makes a person certain? We know that Christ's power and position of authority came with His birth. But when a person becomes a leader that position is earned as you go through training. You start on the bottom and work your way up. You follow the rules. You have others above you that you must report to. Just by calling yourself a centurion does not make you one -- far from it.

When I read about people who claim that a demon or other evil presence can't be driven out that tells me that somebody is lying. There is no place that has a demon or other evil presence that can't be cleansed. There is no person possessed by a demon that can't be freed unless that person has given themselves over to the darkness. When you read stories about undefeatable demons there is something wrong. Either the place or person is not haunted or possessed or the person performing the work is not under the authority of our God most high.

In verse 16 we find the first recorded act of exorcism in Christ's public ministry. How did He cast them out? Through "HIS" word. No crystals, no gimmicks. Simply through the spoken word the "DEVILS" fled. It is also noted in this verse that He healed the sick marking a difference between the acts of exorcism and healing. Not all illness is caused by demonic influences.

We are then given the incident of Jesus sleeping on the boat and the disciples became fearful of the storm. Christ awakes, calms the sea, but tells them they had no reason to worry. In spiritual warfare we can have no fear of the enemy. We will defeat them through the power of God. He will protect us, never fear. If your human eyes see storms ahead for you have a spirit with you that is more mighty then anything that can be thrown in your way.

We encounter an act of exorcism. When two men who are again possessed by "DEVILS" know who Christ is and ask why has He come to torment them prior to the End Times? It shows us that demons know who Christ is, fear His power and He has knowledge of future events.

Will share more on this as we move through the other gospels. We can also come to understand here that more than one person can be possessed within a group. Often if you find one person possessed within a family, you can find a second one [many so-called experts never look for this].

Next week we will pick up on Chapter 9 and what it tells us about the state of death.

Educating the Uninformed

We came across an interesting post by Sarah, who participated on the now-debunked show, Demon Exorcist. This comment was posted on a thread in which she and Jackie discuss the book they are writing concerning her claims. She brings up a point that I would like to address.

"He believes that only Christians can have demons.. if so, how come the people in Africa have rituals for evil spirits? I'm sure their religious beliefs differ from ours.. but he needs to argue that with someone else."

So let me take each point at a time.

1 Never said that only Christians can have demons. Demons can and will go after Christians and non-Christians in order to appease the leaders they serve. Tormenting Christians brings them great joy but non-Christians are very easy targets for them.

2 If you mean that I say only Christians can cast out or drive away a Christian demon then that is the Bible's position. Only followers and Disciples of Christ have that authority. I will get into more detail later on in the series.

3 What you fail to understand, or are confusing with the aid of fake demonologists like Dwayne Claud and Carl Johnson, [NOT his brother Keith who is the real deal] is that all alleged demonic activity is demonic. There are evil spirits, lesser gods [demi-gods], shadow people and other negative entities that can impact a person's life. Only trained people have the ability to determine this.

4 Not all demons are Christian demons. There are Hindu demons, Muslim demons, and even demons found in the Buddhist faith. A Christian has no spiritual authority over them unless they invade the life of a Christian. To repel or drive away a demon of a particular faith, you must get a person that has that faith's spiritual authority.

5 You bring up a topic of people in Africa driving away spirits. A. Demonic forces can and will act as if they have been driven away to prove their spiritual powers. B. If they are driving them away then they are performing rites that have powers over that demon or spirit.

Sarah, when it comes to dealing with demons it is not just a matter of I see things this way and you see things that way. There is only ONE WAY.  That is the way of Christ and the spiritual authority He passes on to those who follow and serve Him.

Hope this information makes your book easier to write.
