An Insight into the Spiritual Realm in which we live
by Jack Vorster
9/20/2011 / Christian Living
Did you know that you are involved in a competition and that you have been in this competition since the day you were born? The prize of this competition is your very own mind. To be exact, the prize is the control over your mind.
We live in a world occupied by humans, demons and angels. All three are spiritual in make-up and all three operate within the spirit realm. Humans operate within the spirit realm from the point of view that the physical world exists within the spirit realm. The physical world is a product of the spirit world and as such the spirit realm holds sway over it. However, humans were designed to function in the natural world and to experience only the physical aspects of their environment. Human beings are, therefore, spiritually blind. Demons and angels have no such limitations and they know that they can communicate with human beings as if the latter were just as spiritual as they are. In other words, they can speak to to us and we can hear them, but we receive their voices as thoughts within the minds of our spirits. It is, therefore, interpreted as private thoughts and we believe that no-one has access to it or are able to dictate our line of thought. Our own words and deeds are executed physically as a result of the "instructions" from our spiritual minds. And those words and deeds will either be as a result of our own deliberations or as a consequence of spiritual mind control by demons.
A clear indication of demon influence would be expressions of resentment, rebellion, sarcasm, discontent, anger, malice, vindictiveness, unbelief, jealousy and vengeance - accompanied by actions and body language to support such outbursts. God created us in His image, which means we have the ability to be creative. However, the place where that creation takes place first is in our spirits, followed by a physical manifestation of that creation. Negative emotions, such as listed above, can be summed up as emotions of fear. And fear is a powerful catalyst for the creation of the spiritual blueprint for the physical product. And that product comes in the form of the destruction of human relationships. After all, what else do we have but human relationships, which leads to either love or hate and peace or war. Faith produces love and peace. Fear produces hatred and war, which is what demonic forces are trying to achieve amongst the human population. This is their primary goal. And there is a by-product to fear, which fits in neatly with their scheme of things, namely, sicknesses, diseases and death.
Yes, the more we upset ourselves and others by demon-invoked emotions, the more we are prone to contracting sicknesses and diseases. All compliments of demonic forces at work within the precinct of our spirit to whisper the things they want us to hear, feel, say and do. Their mission is to destroy the potential of the image of God within man.
To fully illustrate the fact that we can become oblivious to the idea of mind control and follow exactly what we are told to do without realizing that our words and deeds are influenced by outside forces we only need to look at hypnotism. People on a stage, under hypnosis and therefore having had their minds blanked out by the hypnotist, are told to use their speech and bodies to perform certain acts. They do exactly that, even unaware of the laughing audience being entertained by their antics.
Human beings can be totally possessed by demons to perform acts of violence and when the possessed end up in court to face the charges the court dismisses their explanation that they were told to do it and that they had no control over their actions. This is also how civil unrest, terrorism and wars between nations are primed. And the world looks on, thinking that it is just a matter of bad people doing their thing.
Rebellious teenagers, fighting spouses and schoolyard massacres are all examples of spiritual mind control. It is absolutely clear that we live in a world where war has been declared against the human sector. And the only reason why we are easy targets is because we all have that virus of sin running through our spiritual veins. We all know the difference between good and evil and the only thing we need - to make the choice of following the evil route - is to heed those foreign, demon-injected thoughts. This is how teenagers become drug addicts, marriages end up in divorce courts and, in general, humans become criminals.
Correctional institutions (prisons) hold human beings under lock and key hoping that "correction" will take place under those conditions. What inmates and the entire human population of this planet need is the "antidote" for the sin virus. And that is transformation through the Cross of Jesus Christ. There is no other way to sanctification, redemption and successful resistance to the forces of darkness launched from the spiritual realm in which we live.
