The Media and the Occult

I have recently had an automobile accident that totaled my car, and laid me up for a week. While I was laying around and recovering from the trauma of it all, I would channel surf to find SOMETHING pleasant to watch. During this time of the year, I'm a little more sensitive to the spiritual battles that encompass All Hallows Eve so I just needed a laugh or twenty! Much to my dismay, most of what I was surfing through had underlying occult references! That's Hollywood! The media! My Lord God is rarely mentioned, much less accepted, in the media and in the movies, television series or specials. If He is mentioned, it's to mock, joke about or deny. Sadly, the very one that is prominently spoken about, revered and lifted up, is Satan, the one who leads them to Hell......

While I was recovering, all I saw was references to mediums, vampires, the spirit world and a host of other "occult" practices. I also became sensitively aware to a word, one single word, that everyone seems to be throwing around non-nonchalantly, and possibly without even knowing what it means. CHANNELING! Let's see what this means and clarify WHO it belongs to....."it's a term used in reference to the esoteric process of receiving messages or inspiration from extra-dimensional spirits, whereby one is a medium or channel for such an entity." Now, to make this clear as a bell, these "spirits" are not angelic, Godly, in nature. These spirits are NOT friendly. They are what the Bible calls, "familiar spirits" or demonic spirits. Familiars take the "form" of a familiar person and "appear" to them as a "ghost." Make NO mistake, they are NOT the person they are appearing as. Satan mocks all that is good and pure and holy to deceive those who cannot see the Truth! Satan is infiltrating the media, every chance that is given to him, to sugarcoat what is forbidden by our Lord Jesus Christ. Satan wants his "doings" to appear good and safe and harmless to draw you into his web. One can't mix good and evil nor can they serve two gods.....God will not be mocked.

These deceptions are all just doorways to the occult. To ignite curiosity. To ignite thoughts of exploration. These doorways must remain shut! Satan wants to grab as many innocent lives and souls as he can because he knows his time is running out. The doorway you need to be searching is the doorway to the Light of Jesus and His Kingdom. God has won! Satan already knows he's been defeated! But our roles on this earth, is to educate, make aware and help open the eyes of the blind! Mine were opened along the way as well. The Lord truly shook me upside down and showed me a world that is REAL but only portrayed as being "make believe." One must remember, the biggest lie Satan has created is that he doesn't exist! He does! Along with his dominion of demons. However, he is not all powerful. He is NOT everywhere. He is NOT loving. And he is NOT Light! He is a DESTROYER not a CREATOR! In order for these movies and series to be written, one must know, or experience, demonic activities in order to convey it's perversity to the world. I've watched some movies in the past where I thought to myself, "Who on earth can even THINK up something so diabolical, so evil and so DARK?" My answer was right in the middle of my question. It surely wasn't a Christian, a Christ loving, blood covered Christian! Those things don't come out of the minds of a Holy Spirit dwelling Christian. So then, it must come from the darkest pits of hell and those who allow Satan to use them as their vessel. Why? Mostly because of fame, fortune and notoriety. But others believe the lies.....harmless, innocent, fun.

Let's make just ONE comparison to Vampires. Vampires make sacrifices. Blood is their main ingredient. They "bite" their "victims" and their victims then have ETERNAL LIFE as a vampire. Their victims are also their sacrifices. Does ANY of this ring a bell of similarity to Christ's sacrificial blood? To God's sacrificing His only Begotten Son? To His children having ETERNAL LIFE? Vampires are prominently night lovers and all the evil is associated with the night! God is associated with LIGHT because He IS the Light of the world as stated in John 8:12, Jesus proclaims, "I am the Light of the World. Whoever follows Me, shall never walk in DARKNESS, (emphasis mine) but will have the light of life." Also in 1 John 1:5, "This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all." Now think of THIS....a vampire is a BAT. Humans are being portrayed as being able to "fall in love" with a BAT....an ANIMAL. All of the occult vampire, wolves and beauty and the beast shows/movies romanticize this abominable practice! But because Hollywood dresses it up with the stains of the devil, it makes it look innocent and harmless! The whole media conditions people into accepting that which is wrong. Calling evil good, and good evil! This is exactly what our Lord says to us.....in Isaiah 5:20, it is very clear as to God's absolute authority, "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"  When God, in His inerrant Word, calls something evil, it is evil. When he labels something bitter, than no amount of religious authorities, can make it sweet through their solemn declarations!
