Startling, but Exciting Revelations about the World we Live in - Part Three of Six: Voices From Beyond
by Jack Vorster
3/09/2011 / Christian Living
In a court of law the judge will be influenced by the voice of the prosecutor against the defendant and the voice of the advocate for the defendant. The judge will then decide or make his "choice" based on those voices.
The world we live in is filled with voices, not only the voices of human beings, but also the voices of unseen spiritual beings. The voices of the latter have a bearing on our freedom of choice in life. These voices belong to demon spirits and fallen angels. And they are in direct contact with our own spirits and, if allowed, will orchestrate and assist the actions of those (human beings) who desire to follow evil means of achieving their goals as a result of these voices.
The origin of these unseen spiritual forces is a subject for another book. Suffice to say, they exist and are active all over the world as we speak. They are in control of governments, nations and individuals, as is clearly evident in the evil being perpetrated worldwide. Corruption, death and destruction follow in the wake of their influence. Their very first objective is the removal of all forms of reference to or belief in God in the public sector, which then opens the way for decay in the moral standards of society. Crime, drugs and promiscuity become the norm. Hardly a movie script is without the repetitive use of the name of Jesus Christ as an expletive.
Where do you think our jealous, revengeful and murderous thoughts, that lead to like deeds, come from? The minds of our spirits are under constant bombardment and scrutiny. Evil spirits can add to our thoughts by means of suggestion and temptation using our very own senses, such as when men look upon beautiful women for too long. Remember, we are spirit, and evil spirits can pass on some powerful ideas, which we believe to be our own. And soon we start having a mental debate. Sound familiar? There are those of us who are so steeped in sinful living that we don't even need encouragement from the invisible world, in which case it is likely that we are possessed by one or more of these evil spirits, who sit back, enjoying the ride.
Then on the other hand, you might be a peace-loving, law-abiding individual with hardly a nasty thought crossing your mind, but you either loathe or have no interest in religion of any kind. This suits the invisible enemy just fine. They'll place you on the backburner for a later date.
The reality of interference from the spirit world is repeatedly made clear in the Bible, consummately so in Ephesians 6:12, which reads, "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." And the ruler of these spiritual forces is none other than Satan, to whom the title of "god of this world" is given in the Bible.
Sicknesses and diseases are the offspring of lives being lived in sin. These evil spiritual forces are at the forefront of plunging mankind into an abyss of unrighteous living and the ill health that follows, so as to cut short any chance of reconciliation with God.
Mental illness is supposedly a demented condition of the mind for which people receive psychiatric treatment. As already expounded, one's mind belongs to one's spirit to which the spirit world has access, and mental illness comes as a result of demon possession or oppression. Jesus cast out these demons and healed people when He walked the earth, delivering them from the bondage that made them spiritual prisoners, thereby highlighting the fact that man's state of health can be attributed to "spiritual wickedness in high places".
And that is what people in the world have become - spiritual prisoners, or 'captives' as referred to by Jesus. Man is captive to wickedness and the sordid pleasures of the world, but basking therein and wanting more.
So you see, the world is a spiritual prison camp, of which Satan is the master, but we are there by choice, albeit through ignorance. That is why God, because He has provided us with a way of escape, first holds us personally responsible. He will deal with Satan later. In the meantime He will afford protection to those who seek it
You are now standing in front of that stage not yet tread upon. In Part Four you are going make a rapid climb up the steps and on to that stage. Be afraid. Be very afraid - and then receive wings to fly like an eagle.
