The Soul, part 6
Part 7 of Spirit, Soul and Body.
REASONS FOR WOUNDS AND DEMONIC ACTIVITY IN THE SOUL.(part 2)
We read in Proverbs 18:21 that death and life are in the power of the tongue. God created by speaking. There was so much life and power in His words that the whole creation became alive through His words. Our words will also create life or death. I have really prayed that God should reveal this truth to you. We should not be afraid to speak, but get help to choose life-giving words.
When parents say to their children that they are so lazy that they will never manage school, they are actually speaking curses over their children.
Others might say: ” When you eat so many sweets, you will become so fat that nobody wants to marry you.” This is like shooting an poisonous arrow into the soul of the child. This will create a wound and the wound will grow for every new arrow. This wound influences our thoughts, emotions and actions. If the wound is not healed, it can become an opening for the devil. That is the same for any kind of wound.
You can also curse yourself by saying: ” I am so stupid. I can’t manage anything.”
When I pray for people, I often have to break the power of the negative words spoken by themselves or others. Words do not disappear by themselves. They stay as signals in the atmosphere for both God and the devil to use.
We can break the power of the words in the Name of Jesus.
TRAUMA AND HARASSMENT
When we watch TV from countries in war, we may see both children and adults surviving terrible things. Children might have to watch their parents being killed or tortured. We often see pictures of people who have lost a part of their body.
Here in Scandinavia, life might be a little less dramatic, but even so, many have experienced very hurtful things.
A great number of children are living with parents who are misusing alcohol or other drugs. They might tell about ill-treatment or how they have been neglected.
Incest was a great topic some years back and that is still going on all over the world. It is terrible when a child is sexually abused by a person who should represent great security for the child.
Others have experienced an accident that caused both physical and mental damages.
We read constantly about women being raped and many of them experience guilt and shame in spite of the fact that they are innocent.
Death and divorces can be traumatic experiences, not only for the children, but everybody involved.
All this and much more can create wounds and open up for demonic activity.
I do not have any easy solution, but a combination of talks, the Word of God, closeness and love, prayers, deliverance and compassion can help to heal.
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD!
Children are especially vulnerable and we have to pray for their protection. They might not know the difference between right and wrong and they are not able to separate a lie from the truth in the same way as we adults.
They might not have experienced a drama, but maybe they have a controlling mother and a weak father. That could create an unbalanced mother-father image. Others have a sister or brother who needs a lot of attention and the “strong one” is left to him-or herself.
Some families lack money and the children may daily be hearing that they cannot buy what they want.
As parents or teachers we have to consider that whatever we say or do to children, will have an impact on them for the rest of their life.
God has one Kingdom and in that Kingdom we have angels. The devil also has an invisible world with demons. To-day there are many who do not know what belongs to the kingdom of God and what belongs to the invisible world of Satan. Within “Alternative Medicine” you will find a lot of treatments based on occult revelation, not godly nor scientific. These can help for some time, but the symptoms will often come back and you can become dependent on either the treatment or the one who treats you. The devil reveals himself as “the Angel of light.”
We humans are spiritual beings and many are seeking the spiritual through meditation. Quite a few repeat mantras and many of them are names of other gods. This is highly displeasing in the eyes of God.
People are hungry for experiences and spiritism is such a supernatural experience. In spiritism they try to contact a dead person.
Others visit fortune-tellers. One can predict the future by looking at cards or coffee-grounds.
Horoscopes are popular reading in many magazines. The Bible is warning us against seeking the devil for our future. We Christians know that our future is in the hands of God.
It is easy to see that the devil operate through the Satanists, but more difficult to see that some of the rituals of the Free-Masons are inspired by the devil.
If you participate in rituals, be sure that Jesus is there and that the rituals promote life, joy, freedom and peace.
I will not present a complete list over all occult activities, but contact a spiritual advisor with knowledge about this. If you yourself or anybody in the family has had contact with occultism, you need help.
The occult opens up and welcomes the devil in and he wants to harm and destroy you. I warn you to play with the “fire.”
CONFESS ALL FORMS FOR OCCULTISM AS SIN AND RENOUNCE EVERYTHING YOU HAVE PARTICIPATED IN AND CUT OFF ALL TIES TO IT. COMMAND THE DEVIL WITHIN YOU TO COME OUT. CLEANSE YOURSELF WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
God has created us as human beings and we do not live in three separate circles. Both spirit, soul and body belong together. Many of the things that create wounds in the soul can also be harmful for the body. I will write about the body next time.
GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
