How to Break the strong holds of the Occult

Updated on May 19, 2014

Suit up, and show up!

The first thing a Christian must realize is that the more we work for God, the more our enemy will come against us. This is why we must prepare our selves for this fact.

We battle not against flesh and blood!

It has been over twenty year now since I have had any involvement with the Occult. Even so, I still receive a lot of spiritual attacks. Satan is forever looking for a foothold; a way to either get me back into the darkness I was delivered from, or destroy me completely. I still get bazaar thoughts and I find I have to "suit up" with the armor of God constantly. The fact that I am working on a novel that has a lot of Occult aspect in it, does not make it any easier.

However, I am writing this book to do my best in countering the fascination that the Occult holds for young people in this day and age. I also am aware that even in the Christian churches, aspects of the "New Age" movement has a strong appeal. There is even a tendency to blend Christianity with Wicca and other forms of metaphysics.

Many try to convince us, that Wicca is a "white" religion; but I will boldly state that there is no such thing as white witchcraft! I go into this at some length in the last hub in a sires of hubs I wrote, Luciferian Doctrine My conclusion. In that article, I speak about how Wicca is much different than many claim. Even some of the Wicca "historians" have stated that the history of Wicca is not completely correct! If you want to read about my findings on this, then please read the link above for I will not repeat my self in this hub.

For I have other fish to fry; in this hub I want to discuss how to protect oneself from Satanic assaults. Especial if one has a pass with Occult involvement. The most powerful weapon we have is to "plead the blood of Jesus" over the situation that we find ourselves. for it is Jesus's sacrifice that has redeem us. We also must have a relationship with God though prayer and the diligent study of his word, the Bible.

It is also important for us to guard our thoughts and the activities that effects both conscious and unconscious aspects of are minds. For our thoughts is where the battle for our souls is fought. That is why the scriptures tell us that we must be diligent about what we dwell on. One important verse that speaks to this this truth is Philippians 4:8, which instructs us to focus on things that are true and honorable and right, pure and lovely. Some of these things are quite difficult to accomplish in the world we live in. Especially when we are constantly bombarded by just the opposite emotions and qualities. In this day and age, falsehood and dishonesty, corruption and just plain ugliness is everywhere!

Then Peter tells us that in spite of the fact that we live among "Pagans", that they will see our good works even when we are accused of doing wrong. This can be a tall order when we find ourselves in situations where we are being criticized for our believes. The bottom line here is that it is all about action.

Other things we can do is have our homes blessed by someone who's faith is strong. Anointing oil and holy water is two substances that can be very useful when ridding a home of unwanted spiritual activity. We must also avoid involvement with any thing that diverts us from our relationship with God. Dabbling in anything that has the signature of the Occult will only put out a welcoming mat for demonic activity. In my opinion, even an interest in Astrology can tempt us to explore even deeper into realms that belongs to the Devil. I speak of this in more detail in my hub The Devil wares Camouflage. Curiosity does not only "kill the cat", it puts our very souls in grave danger! In the next section of this hub, I will discuss some of the myths and misconception about Satan and all his methods of operations.

A long but important video!

Know your enemy

One of the myths about Satan, is that Demons do not have the ability to act on their own accord, that they are only pawns of the Devil and only do his bidding. yes, It is true, that Satan is in charge of the other Fallen Angles, and yet, there is a chain of command. It is the same with angles in "Heaven's Army." Every one of these spirits has their own purpose and position. The "high command" are in charge of actual areas, or even countries. Danial speaks of this when he talk"s about the "Prince of Persia".

When I was a Satanist, I was taught the "chain of command" and what demons would be used for different rituals. I go into this more in my the second hub in the series " Luciferian Doctrine", part Two. There are demons that attack us in our dreams, demons that brings about strife in our relationships, and even demons that are experts in tempting us with lustful thoughts,

Another myth, is that Christians are immune to attacks. That since Christ defeated Satan when He sacrificed His life for the world, that Satan has lost his power. Nothing could be farthest from the truth, for Satan is doing everything in his power to "deceive the very elect". Falsehood has slithered it's way into the Christian church from the very beginning of the Church.Of course, some of Satan's methods of corrupting the churches are quite subtle. Satan being "the Father of Lies" loves to use what some might call "white lies". Both Paul and Peter, warns us of false teachers.

I have spoken before about Satan being like a "bass pro fisherman" and the reason why I see him like this is that he has studied the human race for a long time so he will know what are weakness are. Just like a bass pro, that has studied the attributes and feeding habits of the fish he has targeted. He knows were the fish hang out at certain times of the year and if one thing does not work, he will try something else! In other words, he is flexible.

Not only is Satan flexible, he is patient and relentless. And it is my belief that he becomes more aggressive the closer we come to God.In my last Hub Crisis: American Style , I declare that the reason that America is going through so much strife at this time is that we have wondered away from God. Instead we have turned towards the very things that the Bible warns us to avoid. When we as a nation embrace the things of this fallen world, we bring on us the same fate that those who worshiped idols and false gods.

So in closing, I want to proclaim that the best way for us as a nation can break the stronghold that the Occult has on us, especially our young, is turn back to God as he is presented in the Bible.

      Thank you for your post Say Yes To Life. I think that the only one who should control is God. And yet, how does one know that he or she is being controlled by God and not by someones idea of God? This is personal thing that everyone must decide if it is God in control and not something man made. I have been in a couple cults, at least now I see them as cults but at the time that I was involved with them I did not see them as cult at all. Only though prayer was able to see the organizations that I belong to as a cult.

      High Voltage Writer - the cult I belonged to was a small one, simply a local church that used mind control, then abandoned me when I was attacked by a professional criminal. I wrote about it in the hub, "My Experience in a Cult". I left by moving, but it wasn't until a few years later when my niece dropped out of high school to join an obvious cult, complete with mini compound, that I realized I'd even been in one.

      I've noticed way too many parallels between cults and Christianity. That's why I believe it's extremely important to study other religions, and other ways people think. Ultimately, no one has the Last Word; any religion that claims to should be suspected as a mind-controlling cult.

      Thank you manatia44 for your comments...I agree that Grace has the last word. You right travel man, even things that others see as "White" can open up doors that may be hard to close!

      From simple Quija board and into sacrificing human lives, the brutal acts are indeed favoring the Evil Ones.

      I've been tempted by my distant aunt to try the so-called 'white-magic' but I declined. I know the consequences if I indulge in such practice to gain worldly power. It's eternal damnation.

      Good thing you have already escaped the dark stage in your life.

      Thanks for the warning.

      Thanks My brother.

      I presume you speak of Destiny or Faith. They are pretty precise and will coil around us like snakes. However, Grace has the last word. All the God-men I respect say this. Grace can nullify anything if it's the Will of the Supreme. Fate can be changed by an unchanging will, and the Soul of man is greater than his fate. Ultimately, God is not bound by any law. He is omnipotent.

      Thank you Manatita44 for reading this, and from looking at your site it appears that you are following quite a interesting path I will be reading more of your Hubs for I am open enough to consider other viewpoints. One of things you said in your post made me wonder if you believe in predestination. I would like to read more about your views on this. Hello Say Yes To Life, I am interested in finding out more about the cult you belong to and how you broke free. Also, I feel that God using "mere mortals" as way to get his message out to his children that he loves greatly. Thank you so much for reading and the fan mail you sent.

      Interesting article. Since I grew up in the Christian church, including attending a Christian high school, I've heard all this before.

      Nearly 20 years ago, I inadvertently joined a cult, putting my life in danger. Bear in mind people do not go around looking for cults to join; they only do so because they look good at the time. I wrote a hub about this, called "My Experience in a Cult". Currently, I am experiencing flashbacks, even though this happened nearly 20 years ago; they have changed the way I view the world.

      I'd also like to call you on what you wrote about Wicca. I once had an online associate who endured horrific childhood sex abuse from age 5 to 18, when she finally ran away from home. She repeatedly prayed to God for deliverance, but none came. She is now a practicing Wiccan, and has absolutely no complaints about it. I know virtually nothing about Wicca, but even if it's Satanic, you might consider what drove her to it in the first place. If I were an all-powerful being who turned my back on my daughter while this happened to her, I could hardly expect her to be devoted to me afterwards, could I?

      Currently, I identify myself as an agnostic Omnist. I believe all religions, including the pagan ones, hold some degree of truth, but none - including Christianity - are absolute. Regarding being an agnostic - surely any God powerful enough to create the universe could speak for Himself, rather than have mere mortals make up excuses for His behavior or lack thereof???

      Anyway, I certainly would not choose to involve myself in Satanism! Obviously, Good and Evil exist in this world, and aligning oneself with the forces of Evil is the stupidest thing anyone can do.

      Very interesting article, my newly found friend, Highvoltagewriter.

      You're trying to help here and this has to be commended. Like you say, though, I'm not sure that writing about the subject is the right thing. Still, you must travel the Path mapped out for you. I appreciate this.

      Personally I like the devotional way, the God Alone or Only Love approach. We sojourners walk along a narrow Path, not looking back; not being attracted by the many beautiful flowers we meet along the way. For as the Christ has taught me, I seek first the Kingdom knowing that all else is futile, until I have made the owner of this beautiful garden called earth, my true and only Friend. This keeps me one-pointed and as such free from occultic distractions.

      Good to know you Bro. Much peace.

      And yet it appears by your comments that you are still very young and still have not been exposed to a lot possibilities. This world is more vast than us mortals can even comprehend, and I think that science will eventually come to grasp with the spiritual reality, for science is already taking into consideration the possibilities of other dimensions.

      By the way I do not fear anything. I just came to realize that we only know just the very tip of the iceberg of what can be know and experienced.

      I am very interested in strange and absurd beliefs, be they those of organized religion where their absurdity is taken for granted for cultural reason, or those of the new age, fringe, and occult variety. It simply amazes me that people will believe in some of this stuff, from Atlantean mole-men beneath the Earth to Nazi UFOs to sacred geometry and spirit orbs, people will believe ANYTHING.

      I believe in the "unseen world" as well, meaning things like oxygen, nitrogen, bacteria, you know, what can be tested, proven, etc. Science is our best method for understanding reality, including things not readily apparent to our senses, such as the "unseen". If these phenomenon ARE real they should still be observable and detectable through some means.

      Those who look too hard for the reality of magic are missing out on the magic of reality. Living your life in constant fear of the "unseen" is not a good way to live. I for one am a happier person having given up the needless fear and guilt of the superstitious life my parents brought me up in.

      Thanks for sharing Titen Sxull....and yet you seem fascinated by Occult subjects that you say you do not believe in. You are unaware that you are opening a door that years from now you might find hard to shut!

      For I was once like you not believing in things I could not see with my own eyes. Then I had a wake up call and now I do believe in the unseen world, for I have had to many experiences NOT to believe. Someday I pray that you also will come to see there is more than meets the eye!

      A useful article. Thank you for writing it. The Bible is our guide-book and if we learn about our Father God and put our trust in Him, through Jesus Christ, we can put our life in His hands and not be enticed by such things. God bless you.

      I'm an atheist, I think both Satan and God are fictional beings in a mythological pantheon, just like Zeus and Aphrodite and the Cerberus that guards the Underworld. I am always baffled by Christians who talk about darkness and an evil supernatural enemy lurking all around us and then say that this entity is Satan or demonic. The sins and evils that the Biblical God commits are so horrific and dark that to suggest to me that Satan is the evil one is absolutely ridiculous.

      “Another myth, is that Christians are immune to attacks. That since Christ defeated Satan when He sacrificed His life for the world, that Satan has lost his power. Nothing could be farthest from the truth, for Satan is doing everything in his power to "deceive the very elect".”

      Sounds like an admission that your God is powerless to prevent bad things or affect change within reality. Hey, it's almost as if he weren't even there to begin with. When I was a Christian sermons like the one you're giving in your hub used to scare me to my core, I was never more afraid of demonic possession and activity than when I BELIEVED in it. Funny correlation is that, when I was a child, I used to believe there were monsters and ghosts. I used to be terrified that aliens might come and abduct me in my sleep. The thing that these fears all had in common was BELIEF, every shadow housed a monster and every bad event had a supernatural cause. When you grow up and stop believing in the boogeyman a funny thing happens, you stop being afraid and you no longer see boogeymen in everything around you.

      “I have spoken before about Satan being like a "bass pro fisherman" “

      If Satan is a bass pro fisherman than God must be the ahole who throws M80s in the lake to kill the fish in droves. How many people does Satan kill in the Bible? How many does he personally damn to Hell and find worthless and unworthy? The only people in the entire Bible that I can recall that Satan kills are Job's children, and SATAN GETS PERMISSION FROM GOD TO DO IT FIRST.

      In fact, your own Bible says that “apart from God we can do nothing”, Satan is powerless except for the power God has granted him (scripture admits this). Satan's temptations, his inevitable rise to power in the end times, are all PART of God's plan, decided upon from the foundations of the world to sift those willing to be faithful servants from the rest of us. And the rest of us, Revelations says the smoke of our torment with ascend forever. That's the monster that you hope to bow before in Heaven, the great white robe that of Christ that you cower behind because you are afraid of your own thoughts and your own “sins”.

      As I said, its all fiction to me. But for you, for whatever reason, you have chosen, or been lead, to see it as reality. Well the reality of your fiction is that Satan isn't the monster in the story forcing his will upon the people and demanding fealty under penalty of Hell – that's God.

      “For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.” - 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
