Hypnosis and yoga DEITY'S AND DEMONIC AFFLICTIONS
Hypnosis and yoga are a couple of mystical practices which have basically gone mainstream in America today. Just because a spiritual practice goes mainstream however, doesn't mean that it is safe and beneficial. Many spiritual teachings and practices are dangerous to the soul. This calls for daily discernment and constant vigilance on the part of every Christian. Altered states of consciousness and other mystical practices open doors in the spiritual realm. Once a door is opened, a person becomes vulnerable to any spirits which come through that door. For example, a seance opens a door. So do animal sacrifices....and all voodoo rituals as well. Astrology is another spiritual exercise which opens a door. Hypnosis is basic to the Eastern religions. Prominent hypnotists have estimated that there are probably over 100 different stages of hypnotic trance. Christians should never allow themselves to be put in a trance....regardless of who is leading you into that mental state of relaxation. No matter what obstacles we face, God will help us if we rely upon Him rather than magical or mystical experiences.
Yoga is rooted in the occult. Most people are deceived into thinking that yoga is just a sequence of exercises that promote health, relaxation and wellbeing. Far from it, it is deity worship and an open door for demonic attacks on people that practise them. Every pose in yoga is a worship position to a Hindu deity
Deuteronomy 12:30 But be careful that you don’t fall into the same trap they did! Don’t go to their false gods for help.
The physical exercises of yoga are designed to prepare the body for the spiritual changes which yoga produces. Some of the reported symptoms of a "Kundalini Awakening" through yoga include: itching, burning, cramping, twitching of skin and body, severe emotional mood swings, anxiety, depression, rage, fear and dread, mental confusion, and even paranormal activity. In short, yoga never produces Christ-centered peace. A person may enter into a seance or hypnosis or do yoga with innocent motives. That doesn't solve the problem. When you open a door to spirits, you place yourself in harm's way....unless you are turning to the Holy Spirit. No born again believer should utilize yoga or hypnosis because of the spiritual dangers associated with these practices. Even when facilitated by a "professional", the dangers far outweigh any potential benefits.
With out question, the most disgusting, cunning, and seductive spirit in Satan’s hierarchy has to be what many call the Jezebel spirit.
The Traits of the Jezebel Spirit
I want to start this off with the actual traits of this evil spirit, so you can have all of this information right at the top of this blog. Below is a list of the personality traits of this evil spirit. The Jezebel spirit will try to infect and contaminate the person it is in so they too will operate with these same kinds of evil traits. It has always amazed me over the years that this kind of spirit can get very smart and intelligent people to do its evil bidding so easily. Some of these people will say and do some of the most horrible things, but yet find some way to rationalize it and think they are perfectly justified in doing what they are doing. This spirit will play some of these people like a puppet on a string, with the puppet master being the Jezebel spirit itself.
Here are some of the demonic personality traits to look for with a person who has been operating under this demonic spirit’s influence for quite some time.
Prideful Highly Lustful, Unnatural Sexual Desires and Actions Highly Self-Centered and Narcissistic Will Always Seek To Be the Center of Attention Overly Demanding and Manipulating Cunning, and Calculating Very Good at Lying Cannot Stand Any Type of Constructive Criticism
This spirit operates with maximum pride in it. As a result, it will try to infect the host with that same kind of pride. And once it does, the host will no longer be able to accept any type of constructive criticism from anyone. The host will seek its own throne and they will now have to be the total center of attention. Everything will now be about them and them alone. They also will no longer be able to bond with anyone because they are now totally self-sufficient in their own egos. The only true friends they will have are the people who will get duped into falling into their web of deceit and lies, where they will now become their mindless followers. These people will have all of their friends and family leave them because no one wants to be around this kind of demonic spirit and around these kinds of negative, demonic, and destructive personality traits. And then sooner or later it happens, this person completely fails and falls, as well as losing anything that is close to them.
And this was all due to them allowing this kind of demonic spirit to get on the inside of them in the first place, and from there, blindly follow this demonic spirit’s leadings to do what it wanted them to do. I have seen this spirit literally play some people right over the edge of a cliff where they ended up losing everything. And this was all because they were too blind and ignorant to see what was really going on behind the scenes in the spiritual realm. Again, the Lord has already given us fair warning when He tells us in His Word that without His knowledge, that His people will go into captivity and perish.
The Demonic Spider Web
When someone is walking with this kind of demonic spirit deeply entrenched in them, they will initially move and operate on what I call the spider web analogy. Just like a spider creates a web so it can trap its prey so it can then devour them, the Jezebel spirit will start out in the exact same way once it moves into a certain environment to try and work. These people are very good at playing the good cop-bad cop game. They will always start out playing the good cop. These people will initially seem to have their act all together. They will know how to talk the talk. They will know Scripture well enough so they can impress every one with their high level of spiritual development. They will know how to smooth talk people and use false flattery to gain favor so they can then start to work to get their demonic claws worked into them. And before you know it, you will be caught in their demonic web. And then once they have you comfortably caught in their web through false flattery and deceit, they will then start to attack you and try to tear you down.
Like a moth being drawn towards an open flame!
Another thing that helps these people lure unsuspecting people into their webs is the amount of charismatic energy they are carrying on them. When you initially meet these kind of people, you will feel a certain type of energy coming off them and you will initially feel very drawn to them. You will feel like a moth being drawn towards an open flame. This charismatic type energy on them will have a major drawing power to it. You initially may think it is the presence of the Holy Spirit on them because they will be so good at sounding like they are very spiritual and that they are walking very close to God. When I first started to see this type of drawing power on these people, I found myself being amazed that an demonic spirit could emit this kind of energy off a person. You would think if an evil spirit was attached to someone, that you would be initially totally repulsed and repelled by it. You would not think demons could have this kind of drawing power within their evil natures and then be able to project it through their host. But some of these demonic spirits do, and the Jezebel spirit has this kind of power within itself, and from there, it will project this drawing power through the person it is living in. This is why this spirit has been so successful over the years in bringing down individuals, churches, marriages, and friendships. It has the ability to draw people into their well spun webs, and then before the person knows it or realizes what they have been caught up in, it then moves in for the attack to either kill that person, or try and completely hinder whatever their calling is in the Lord.
This evil spirit simply has a mission to Infiltrate, Attack, and Undermine Everything!
Here is a breakdown of some of the kinds of attacks you can expect once this spirit has gained a good foothold into a certain environment.
The one thing I have noticed about this spirit is that it is very good at playing mind games and head games with people. It will know where your weak spots are and the attacks will always be targeted there so it can start to weaken and demoralize you and bring you down. It will come after your levels of self-confidence and self-esteem. It will come after your calling for the Lord. It will come after your specific personality traits, both good and bad, to see if they can convince you that you are a nobody and that you will never amount to anything good and worthwhile in this life. It will try and make you think you are the crazy one and that they are the ones who have all of the knowledge and wisdom.
They will try and make you feel inferior so they can gain the upper hand in the relationship and that you then need to be totally guided by them and dependent upon them. Before you know it, this kind of spirit can throw you into a depression, along with causing major confusion and indecisiveness. You will feel disoriented and feel like you are caught up in a fog. In other words, this demonic spirit will try to suck the life out of you and tear you down every which way it can so you can no longer function in your calling for the Lord.
The Person Usually Will Not Know They Have This Kind of Demonic Spirit in Them.
The saddest thing about these types of cases is that most of the time, the host will not know they even have this kind of spirit operating on the inside of them. These people never feel it moving on the inside of them, nor do they ever hear it trying to talk to them. This spirit is very good at hiding behind the scenes, but yet at the same time getting the host to do exactly what it wants them to do. The reason these people are usually clueless that this spirit is operating on the inside of them is because this spirit is so smooth and so cunning in the way in which it operates. This is why this spirit will try and fill the person up with as much pride as they can, so these people will be totally incapable of admitting that they could even have this kind of spirit in them in the first place. This is how well deceived these people are, and how well this spirit has played and manipulated them during the entire time it has been on the inside of them. As a result, many of these types of people will never receive a true deliverance from the Lord. And this is all because they have too much pride operating in their personalities, which will prevent them from admitting that they could ever have this kind of spirit operating in them in the first place.
The prophet Elijah himself was so distraught and depressed after coming into direct contact with Queen Jezebel and the spirit operating on her, that he almost wanted to throw in the towel and quit until God strengthened him through an angel and then gave him a direct word. This spirit is very good at being very critical and judgmental and before you know it, it will have you believing in all of the lies it has been throwing your way. This is where you really have to know who you are in Christ, and that you never allow a person with this kind of spirit on them to be able to bring you down like they almost did with Elijah. Let this part of Elijah’s story be a major lesson to all of us on how far this spirit will try and go to literally try and get you to quit and walk out on God’s calling for your life. I believe a lot of the suicides we see may be as a result of this spirit’s evil influence over a person and the mind games it knows how to play with them. If they can do this with a great man of God like Elijah, they then will be able to do it with some of us too.
