The Origin Of Evil/Demons

Hello my para beauties! I trust you had a great weekend and I hope you enjoy my humble blogs regarding my opinion on the Supernatural from a Christian point of view. These days I hate calling myself a Christian due to how many of them exhibit a poor example and turn people away from God. I mean come's so embarrassing how so many judge and assume things. They make our God appear as something he isn't. So many say "that's the reason I don't go to church" referring to Holier Than thou behavior. Remember we will answer for turning people off from getting to know The Lord. Think about this next time your gossiping and judging others when you are not perfect. Only Christ was.

There are many beliefs and answers to that question.

God gave humans and spirits free will.
(Deuteronomy 30:19) I do take the heavens and the earth as witnesses against YOU today, that I have put life and death before you, the blessing and the malediction; and you must choose life in order that you may keep alive, you and your offspring,

Satan made his choice I believe. Once you choose, you can't go back.
(John 8:44) YOU are from YOUR father the Devil, and YOU wish to do the desires of YOUR father. That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of lies.

(James 1:14-15) But each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire. 15 Then the desire, when it has become fertile, gives birth to sin; in turn, sin, when it has been accomplished, brings forth death. It's a tough question to answer. The difference in opinions will vary from person to person. I would think it's a great topic to have for discussion.

Editing of the Bible was never undertaken with the intention of creating uniformity, despite the railing of fundamentalists. There are many internal inconsistencies and disagreements. We should expect no less of a book written over a period of about a thousand years by several different writers grappling with life’s big questions. Inevitably students ask about the Garden of Eden. Genesis 2.17 has Yahweh state that newly created people must not eat of the “tree of knowledge of good and evil” Here the evil grows on a tree. Who planted that tree?

What is the origin of demons? According to the Bible, the origin of evil and, subsequently, demons or evil spirits began with the fall of Lucifer. Most Bible students are fully aware of this.

We understand from scripture that these fallen angels are powerful beings who occupy the atmosphere and stratosphere of our Earth. We also know from scripture that there is a hierarchy or order among the evil spirits with Satan being the chief.

In Ephesians 6:12 we read, For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

There are classes of evil spirits or demons and some of those evil spirits are bound to this Earth. It is the origin of the demons who are earthbound that is the focus of this article.

It is from one of the lost books of the Bible that gives us a clue to the identity of these evil spirits that I believe are responsible for hauntings and possessions that we hear so much about in our modern day world.

Where did sin come from? Most Christians say that God created Adam and Eve perfect, but because they ate the fruit of good and evil, they became sinful. Another argument is that sin comes from Satan, who brings out the worse in us. Let’s start with this verse:

Romans 8:20-22 – for to vanity was the creation made subject – not of its will, but because of Him who did subject [it] – in hope, that also the creation itself shall be set free from the servitude of the corruption to the liberty of the glory of the children of God; for we have know that all the creation dowth groan together, and doth travail in pain together till now.

This verse says that all of mankind is vain not of our own will but of God’s will. WHAT? God created sin? That can’t be right… Let’s look at another verse:

Genesis 3:6 – And the woman seeth that the tree is good for food, and that it is-pleasant to the eyes, and the tree is desirable to make one wise, and she taketh of its fruit and eateth, and giveth also to her husband with her.

Eve sinned Before she ate the fruit. First she saw the fruit was pleasant to the eyes (lust), then she thought the tree was desirable because it would make her wise. In other words, God created both Adam and Eve to be sinful. Why? Do you think that God created man and it went wrong? That somehow God made a mistake? God created man sinful, created the tree of good and evil, and created the desires in man to want the fruit. He knew it would happen and did it on purpose. Why? Because he had a plan which consists of the law of Jubilee.

Origin of Evil

Where did evil come from? Again the argument for this is that it came from Satan. Take a look at the book of Isaiah.

This subject can go on and on. I hopefully touched base on this for you enough without making you dizzy. It's a tough subject with many, many opinions.

Deliverance SKYPE

By Pastor Stephen Piersall,
God’s Preservation Ministry

A fine blast from the past post that originally was posted on August 9, 2013.

The world of communication technology has exploded over the past decades. The late “Gene Roddenberry” was way ahead of his time when you reflect on the original “Star Trek” TV shows. They had cell phones, and the ability to see whom they were speaking to on a viewing screen. Jesus used long-distance communication when he healed the child of the “The Syrophoenician Woman” Mark 7:24-37. Think about other present days distant driven church communications opportunities; Pastors, church prayer teams, your own personal pray list, etc.

When we created our web page for God’s Preservation Ministry, we did not envision it becoming global. We have now reached people in many other countries worldwide, helping with our same basic theme of; Salvation, Deliverance, Healing, Christian counseling. We cannot minister to everyone in their homes, so thanks to modern computer technology; we use SKYPE.

When we start a deliverance session, we already have received consent form and questionnaire information giving us their background to work with. We talk about the case, pray and sometimes fast, and we want to make this all about God and the client. NOTE: You want to see your client the best you can, and for everyone’s safety, we ask that someone be with them. Never look the client directly in the eyes! Any demonic presence can use their powers against you if you just stare into the client’s eyes. You want to have all five senses available to determine what is going on, etc. ALWAYS pray prior to doing the session on your own asking for protection. When everyone is on SKYPE and ready to start, begin and end the session in prayer.

Mark 5:9 Jesus asked the demon his name, “Legion; we are many." "Many", this is true for all demonic presence. The Deliverance session can be several hours, and even then; you may not have all the demons expelled. Billy and I like to compare it to an onion, as in removing layer after layer. Many times several sessions have to be done to get completion.

Manifestations are actually slight and barely noticeable: eye twitches, yawning, narrowing of the eyes, coughing, etc. Occasionally they are more melodramatic: crying, yelling, and doubling over in pain or, in some cases, the demon will want to lash out physically! Consequently, the need to have someone present with the client is for everyone’s concern and safety. Each case is always different from others but there are similarities. It is of the utmost benefit to be prepared for what might happen when the power of God encounters these demonic strongholds.

Touching on the subject of Cleansings/Blessings, PLEASE do NOT attempt to do these until the Deliverance is fully complete. It is okay to bind any demonic spirits, but if the person is not a Christian, you first need to offer the opportunity of salvation. If they are Christian, and have not renounced any Legal Rights with evil through repentance with God you will be going home and leaving the family in circumstances that are more dangerous. Matthew 12:43-45--43 "Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. 44 then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came'; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. 45 then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation."

One thing we do that other Deliverance Ministries do not do is following up with the client. Sure, some may call a week later and that is it. We go into much more detail, with Healing and Christian counseling. We want to see and hear proof that they are praying and reading their Bible every day and have connected with a church. With the local church, that pastor can assist them in their everyday lives.

If you follow the recommendations given, you walk in the freedom Jesus paid such a dear price for you to have. Think of this, if Jesus was willing to suffer on the level, he did; he must truly desire you to be healed and delivered. 1 Peter 2:24 and Galatians 3:13-14. Christ's coming is near. Let us make sure we are righteous and ready for his appearing.
