Old testament harlotry occurred in two forms: the worship of false gods or the worship of the true God by the use of images and statues. All of the nations surrounding ancient Israel practiced idolatry in one form or another. For example, some worshiped mountains, springs, trees and blocks of stone in which the so-called deity was believed to be “incarnate” in them. The Egyptians worshiped the sun,the Nile River,and animals they believed to be sacred: the bull,cow,cat, baboon, crocodile, the snake. Today, when the Holy Spirit reveals to tormented captives that a demon is manifesting in their lives, they often have had dreams of demons who confronted them in the form of these very same animals that were once worshiped as gods in the old testament.
With this in mind, interpretation of these kinds of dreams is very easily. Other animals dreamed about are insects and rodents. Among the Canaanites, worship was barbaric, degrading and often violent,including various demoralizing practices like child sacrifices, prostitution,sodomy and other degrading sexual acts. This is why there is often a strong sexual connection to idolatrous religion, and those who are tormented by a religious demon are often attacked in their sexuality. When the Israelites inhabited the lands where idolatry of this sort was practiced, God often mandated them to cleanse the area by destroying the idols which often included the livestock. Destruction was necessary due to the shameful character of the worship that was practiced, wherein sodomy was a prevalent practice.
The first cited case of idolatry among God’s people is the account of Rachel’s stealing of her father’s teraphim. Teraphim were household gods that were small enough to be held in the hand or to sit on a stand in the house. (Genesis 31:19) Moreover, the whole book of Judges is an account of periodic apostasies, judgments and repentances where idolatry was often mixed in with the outward worship of Jehovah. NOTHING HAS CHANGED ALONG THESE LINES EITHER.
The occultists and the non-Christian religions of today have their relics and practices while those who profess Jesus Christ of Nazareth may be unknowingly worshiping the Fake Jesus as they lift up idolatrous practices within the organized church system. In one of our publications entitled “Faces of the Religious Demon,” several issues on demonic religious practices within new age as well as within Christian cults and churches are addressed. Likewise, the mediums of the old testament are referred to as “channels” in modern times. The term “medium” denotes the ability to operate as a conduit between the natural and the spiritual worlds: either the spirits of the dead which the bible refers to as “necromancy”, or the spirits of non-corporeal entities, , and/or nature spirits. In practically every case, the spirit that is communicating is either a demon masquerading as the spirit of the deceased or as an angel sent from God.
The most outstanding biblical account of mediumship occurred when Saul sought the services of a medium, shortly before his death in an attempt to raise up his former deceased prophet, Samuel. A spirit came forth who claimed to actually be “the ghost of Samuel.” Was that “really” Samuel? The bible does not say. we suspect NOT—that it was a demon masquerading as Samuel. Present day mediumship is at the core of the New Age belief system, and a routine practice among occultists. In this context, and under the name channeling, 21st century mediums are called “channels”. Channels are demoniacally “gifted” to receive messages from a “teaching-spirit” of advanced wisdom known as “ascended masters.”
The usual process is telepathic, mind to mind. The ascended masters are fallen angels , cosmic beings or demons of the highest Satanic order. In some instances, mediums (or the spirits working with them) can produce physical, paranormal phenomena such as materializations of spirits, the movement of objects, or levitation. This was the school of mediumship that I was being trained for in the early 70’s. I saw a few materializations but experienced no levitations—other than my spirit left her body when demons “spoke” through me. However, objects moved about me several times and continued to do so on rare occasions for at least 10 years or more, AFTER I was saved. Only once did I actually feel like I “caused” a lost object to “appear” and this occurred BEFORE I was saved.
Every other time that an object moved, I had no conscious awareness that it was by a power that emanated from within or upon her. Religious demons are not human, nor are they divine. They are simply fallen angels who began calling themselves ascended masters around the mid 20th century. In open communication with their occult disciples, we Christians have been sleepwalking in the spirit. Tenaciously focused on the contents of our own personal lives, the so-called “ascended masters” have been secretly planting their seeds and working diligently toward the fulfillment of their sinister agenda. The ascended masters are in the service of their master, Sanat Kamura, —Lucifer, the highest fallen angel that we all know as Satan or “the devil.” While the higher ranking demonic have been setting the stage for “their final act” of the endtimes, rank and file foot soldiers in Satan’s army were busy distracting all of us from the real issues.
