APART FROM BEING BORN AND RAISED IN THE OCCULT, PEOPLE GET CAUGHT IN SATANISM-VOODOOISM because it is a religion that provides instant magic, (Pow!) spiritual manifestations on command, entertainment, acceptance, instant gratification, power over people and allegedly, also over circumstances.  Satanism is an entertainment, lust-greed-power religion ruled by only one self-enhancing precept:  “Do what thou whilst is the whole of the law!” 

Thus, it is not uncommon for Satanists and even ex-Satanists to fit snugly into Power (Pow!) Religions such as the Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement, which is also based on the same principles. I.e., entertainment, instant gratification, wealth, success, positive confession, auto-suggestion, hypnotism, visualization, the so-called creation of your own 'miracles,' etcetera.  

As found in their “little gods and christs” teaching, people join this Movement because they believe God makes them into supermen and wonder-women through their self-enriching superpower: the tongue-baptism.  Whether Pentecostals want to know it or not, from their get-rich-quick tithing scheme franchises, to their “attend all the church gatherings to get church membership,” the same law governs them as in raw Satanism: “Do what thou willst is the whole of the law,” (lawlessness.) 

This is why Jesus warned so clearly against this Movement in Mt. 7:20-24, saying, “You shall know them by their fruits, [not by their anointing, gifts, wealth, health, or self-induced ‘miracles.’] Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.  Many will say to Me in That Day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied, cast out demons, and done many wonders in Your Name?”  And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness” - or raw Satanism.  (1 Sam. 15:23; kjv.) 

Traditional Protestantism and its mother Catholicism tripped millions of people through the ages.  But it is in these last of the last days where millions more are stumbling because they do not listen to what Jesus prophesied in Mt. 24:3-32, “Beware that no one deceives you.  For many will come in My Name, saying, ‘I am the christ,’ and will deceive many… Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.  And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many, [who were disillusioned and hurt,] will grow cold.  But he who endures [in Me and the truth of My Word] to the end shall be saved.”  

Yet, these supermen and wonder women practicing escalating “lawlessness,” say they are the “Haves,” because they have super or extra power - their ‘tongues-baptism.’  Of course, this clearly relates to the masonic teaching, (as masonic orders govern them as all other churches,) of “the elite enlightened ones versus the unenlightened goyim or ‘lower,’ mindless cattle.”  Their hyper power, tongue-baptism, makes these “Haves” “more saved,” “more anointed,” “more loved,” and “more favoured by God” than the Have-Nots.  This tongue-power is like Superman with his kryptonite.  Without it he is weak and useless; with it he can fly around the earth in a few seconds. 

The “Have Nots,” on the other hand, are diseased, poor, unholy, sorrowful slaves because of a lack of positive confession — but mostly, because they lack the “tongue-evidence-spirit-baptism” which will “initiate” them into the world of supermen and wonder women, wielding their superpower-tongue wand! 

 

Even in the days of the old prophet Ezekiel, people sought after religious entertainers. Ezk. 33:31-32, “…Their hearts pursued their own gain… [so, preachers] were to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your [true] words, but they do not do them.” The same happened in New Testament Christianity when the persecuted assemblies of true believers, (the ecclesia, or The Way,) were fertilized with the early power seeds of Roman Catholic Church Christianity, (Acts 9:2; 22:4; 24:4; 19:9, 23 - 11:26.) Today, preaches such as Benny Hinn openly declare that the Catholics have more miracles than Pentecostals!

God is the God of both the natural and supernatural realms.  His Spiritual Kingdom (Jn. 18:36) originated from, and is seated in the spirit world, and the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit are real and all-powerful, (Mark 16:16-18.)

Yet, Jesus rebuked those who sought after Him just because they wanted to live on spiritual experiences and supernatural power; by sight and not by faith. He said, “A wicked and adulterous generation demands a sign…” (Mt. 16:4.)

The Pentecostal/Charismatic Movement is in its Fourth Wave (called Charismatic Hermeneutics,) of so-called “successive ‘Holy Spirit’ outpourings through ‘new’ Pentecosts.”  Essentially, Charismatic Hermeneutics means, “broad or general, non specific interpretations of Scripture.”  Thus, “Hermeneutics” explain exactly why they can say, “don’t read the Bible; be the Bible!”  In other words, “Do what thou willst is the whole of the law.” 

One may seriously ask, “Is the utter ‘lawlessness’ of the Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement, Christian Satanism?” 

 

A FRIEND BROUGHT EX-SATANIST JOHN RAMIREZ’ TESTIMONY AND TEACHINGS TO MY ATTENTION

John’s Ramirez’s life demonstrates how almighty God is, and of course, what power God allows the devil to have in this world, (1 Jn. 5:19.)  When God finally saved this high mason and Satanist, he came under the mentorship of David Wilkerson. But believers must also “test” the authenticity of Wilkerson’s teachings, because the souls of millions are affected by Pentecostal/Charismatic dogma, (1 Ths. 5:21; 1 Jn. 4:1-4.)

It saddens me that this ex-Satanist escaped secular Satanism to fall into the Pentecostal power trap. I messaged John on Facebook and spoke to him in love, warning him of the dangers of the Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement, and their Jesuit-masonic leadership.  I asked him politely to look at my studies on this Movement and its leaders, who are prophetically governed by Rick Joyner, a self-declared, masonic Knight of Malta.  Until now, he hasn’t made an attempt to answer me.  But I still hope that John seriously desires to know and serve the God of the Bible in spirit and in truth, (Jn. 4:21-24.) 

Sadly, John came under the so-called non-denominational mentorship of David Wilkerson.  Wilkerson leaned strongly towards Pentecostal-Charismatic, extra-Scriptural doctrines, the Kingdom-Now theology, chaotic spiritual manifestations, and Messianic Judaism.   ‘Christians together in the highlands and islands,’ wrote, “[The well-respected] Mr. Wilkerson discredited himself… After denouncing the kind of 'laughing & drunken' counterfeit revivals associated with the Pensacola and Toronto fiascos in his excellent recording "Reproach On The Solemn Assembly"... he rejected solid warnings and accepted a number of engagements to speak to many of the… churches that continued promoting these very deceptions. One church he spoke at in The English Midlands promoted Benny Hinn only one month later. Mr. Wilkerson then began defending [them] and criticized their opponents who warned [against] them. Mr. Wilkerson then went to London to a church that followed the Toronto Experience and Paul Cain, the mentor of Todd Bentley… Mr. Wilkerson spoke of being on the ground laughing unable to get up because God's Hand was on him. The Fruit of The Spirit is 'Self Control' (ekreitei) not the lack of it. The fact that he 'could not get up' proves it was not God's Hand that was upon him. The Word of God teaches the very antithesis.”

I mean it sincerely when I say it is sad to read how John believes God is “waking up” the leaders of the church. If you study the Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement, you will find that Roman Catholic, Jesuit and other masonic orders govern them all.  Hence, they are continually sliding deeper and deeper into false teachings and demonic spiritual manifestations. 

 

In John Ramirez’s testimony, he said, battling with Satan in hell, a cross appeared before him. He “put the cross on Satan and the devil fell to his knees.” He alleges he “defeated” Satan this way. If one knows anything about Roman Catholicism and how it is ingrained in all church dogma as the “mother” of Christianity, it is clear that the cross in his vision came, I believe subliminally, from the dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church. Jesus Alone could ‘defeat’ Satan – and Jesus did that in full on Golgotha, and through His resurrection from the dead, (Col. 2:13-15.) Hence, we are “more than conquerors” because we firmly stand on His completed atonement in our place. We will never again have to ‘defeat’ the already defeated devil and his demons. But we must “overcome [their wiles and assaults] by the blood of the Lamb, [Jesus’ full atonement in our place,] and the word of our testimony, [not how great we are, but who we, the forgiven, really are in Christ: Col. 1:13-14; Rev. 12:11.]” 

Being the very high Satanist that John was, he must know that crosses and other manmade objects do not scare, never mind “defeat” Satan. The cross may be a symbol of Christianity, but it is our faith in Jesus Himself and His full, accomplished work in our place, by which we “overcome” the devil and his demons. John should also know that pentagrams, and stylized pentagrams like the masonic so-called Star of David, (David never had a ‘star,’) does not belong to, or refer to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ in any way.  Yet, in “standing with Israel” in Jesus-denying Messianic Judaism, he poses in front of this so-called ‘star,’ without warning anyone according to his great knowledge of the occult. 

 

THE GIFT OF TONGUES “DEFEATS” SATAN IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE? 

John also teaches, "Weapon #7: Our heavenly language. “Speaking in tongues builds up our inner man when we are in communion with our God. In the Scriptures, Paul makes a profound statement by saying, “I speak in tongues more than all of you” (1 Cor. 14:18 NIV).” 

So, what about the millions of believers through the ages, who never received the gift of tongues? According to this doctrine, they were not “baptized with the Holy Spirit,” and are therefore unsaved. Rom. 8:9 clearly states, “If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His?”

The gift of tongues is just one of the indwelling Spirit’s many gifts, which He gives “as He wills,” (1 Cor. 12:4-11.) 

Paul explained, “Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually, (1 Cor. 14:27-31…) Are all apostles, prophets, teachers, workers of miracles? Do all have gifts of healings? DO ALL SPEAK WITH TONGUES? Do all interpret?”

The answer is clearly NO! 

The wonderful gift of tongues, (and all His gifts are wonderful,) is actually a “SIGN for unbelievers,” not for believers, (1 Cor. 14:22.) Scripture-believing disciples of Jesus know that the Holy Spirit fully indwells all His sincere believers; they do not need "signs." Yet, to experience God's Scriptural signs is grace form our Father in Heaven; praise His Holy Name! (Mark 16:16-18.) But we live by faith in Christ according to the truth of God's Word and the Scriptural leading of the Holy Spirit, not by signs and miracles, like people do in the occult. That is why Jesus said in Mt. 16:4, "A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah" - Jesus' resurrection! 

The context of 1 Cor. 14:18, where Paul says he speaks in tongues more than other people, is as follows, (from verse 2,) “He who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; in the [born again human] spirit he speaks mysteries. But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself; he who prophesies edifies the body of Christ… What is the conclusion then? I will pray with [my human] spirit [1 Ths. 5:23,] and I will also pray with my understanding… I speak with tongues more than you all; yet in the assembly, I would rather speak 5,000 words with my understanding, that I may teach others also, than 10,000 words in a tongue...” 

Living and praying “in the spirit” is not confined to the gift of tongues as the Pentecostal Movement teaches.  If it were true that the gift of tongues “evidences” the ‘Holy Spirit baptism,’ or the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, it must ‘save’ us.  Then the other gifts like the gift to do miracles, and the gift to drive our demons, etc., can also ‘save’ us.  But that is just ridiculous, isn’t it?  Jesus said in Mt. 4:14, 21-24, “Whoever drinks of this Water, [Jesus’ Truth through Jesus Himself Who Is Truth,] shall never thirst again… [For] it will become in him a fountain of water [spiritual life] springing up into everlasting life… You will neither worship the Father on this mountain nor in Jerusalem.. [But after My death and resurrection, and the outpouring of the indwelling Holy Spirit at Pentecost, all] true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit, [with their born again human spirits, Jn. 1:11-13; 3:3-5; Gal. 4:6-7,] and in truth.” 

All sincere, personally born again believers of Jesus are possessed by the Holy Spirit, (Eph. 1:13-14.) They might not all have the gift of tongues, but they all did receive gifts from the Holy Spirit to minister to each other in the body of Christ, (1 Cor. 12:4-11; 12-31.) Whether they pray or worship the Father through the gift of tongues, or constantly in their innermost being or born again human spirits, speaking to Him inwardly and outwardly in words of understanding, all true believers in Christ are “in the spirit – or indwelt by The Spirit of God.” 

 

THE DEVIL CANNOT TOUCH THOSE WHO SPEAK IN TONGUES? 

Ramirez also states that the devil cannot touch those who speak in tongues, or as he puts it, “those who pray in the spirit.”  But God says in 1 Jn. 5:18, “[Whether you have the wonderful gift of tongues or not,] we know that whoever is born of God, [by sincerely accepting Jesus, Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5,] does not sin [habitually;] but he who has been born of God keeps himself [from deliberate, unrepented sin,] and the wicked one does not touch him.” 

This proves that the gift of tongues, just like any other gift of the Holy Spirit, is not “a weapon [or protection] against the devil.”  The full atonement of Jesus in our place, (His blood shed for us and His body broken for us;) obedience to the Truth of His New Testament Covenant, our minute-by-minute relationship with Him as His disciples, the leading of the Holy Spirit, and the mighty protection of His holy angels, “empower” us to “withstand the wiles of the devil,” “overcome” his onslaughts, and “hide us (or protect) us under Jesus’ wings.”  All the wonderful gifts of the Holy Spirit, tongues included, remain “signs” that He is living in us as His born again temples, for the purpose to minister His supernatural gifts to His body of true believers. 

According to the full context of God’s Word, all the millions of sincere believers; all those who do, and do not speak in tongues but keep themselves from sin, cannot be touched by the devil – excluding God’s permission to Satan to “test” and "prove" them, of course. 

 

TONGUES THE ‘FIRE’ OR ‘SPECIAL POWER’ OF THE HOLY SPIRIT? 

Truth is always in the context of Scripture.  John the Baptist explained perfectly what the baptism of fire means.  He said in Mt.3:12-13, “I indeed baptize you in water… but [Jesus] will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and [with] fire.  [And this is what the baptism with fire means:] His winnowing fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor, and gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” 

In the context of Jesus’ Holy-Spirit baptism in these two verses and throughout the New Testament, the gift of tongues is not the “fire” or ‘power’ of the Pentecostal Movement, to do their own miracles and so, to allegedly “defeat” Satan.  The true fire of Jesus’ Holy Spirit Baptism, (after He placed the Holy Spirit inside His newborn temples at the moment of their sincere their acceptance of Him, Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5; Gal. 6-7,) is actually a baptism of suffering, which follows the rebirth in Christ. Jesus demonstrated this “fire” baptism by going into the wilderness after His water baptism to resist Satan’s temptation there.  So, this ‘time of testing’ to “clean out His threshing floor…” with the purpose of separating the weed from the corn by the “fire” of affliction, follows the rebirth and water baptism of all sincere believers.  This baptism of fire ‘tests’ and ‘proves’ their commitment to Christ

Jesus explained the baptism with fire in Mt. 20:21-23.  He said, “[You want My spiritual authority,] but are you able to [first] drink [My purifying, testing] cup that I am about to drink, [at the cross] and be baptized with the baptism [of fire or suffering] that I am baptized with?  …You will indeed [shortly after your rebirth in Me, suffer] the baptism that I Am baptized with, [like I had to endure in the wilderness after I was baptized in water, and even like I have to endure on the cross… (Gal. 2:19-21.)]” 

The indwelling Holy Spirit already gave all His sincerely, personally born again believers His authority or full anointing, (1 Jn. 2:20; 27;) not to flaunt His power, but “to be His witnesses to the whole world,” (Acts 1:8-9; Mt. 28:19-20.)

Of course, the Spirit then gives His powerful, supernatural gifts to each believer “as He wills,” (1 Cor. 12:4-11,) to serve the body of Christ and to evangelize the whole world, (Mark 16:16-18.) 

 

"SHOES OF PEACE 'DESTROY' SATAN?"  (EPH. 6:15.) 

 

Image may contain: shoes and text

[Acknowledgement to the person who compiled this photo] 

 

In testing another Charismatic doctrine, which John Ramirez preaches, I took a closer look at their dogma, “the shoes of peace,” by which, John says, we also ‘defeat’ the already defeated devil, (Col. 2:11-15; Eph. 6:10-19.)

Both the 1933, 1983 versions of the King James Bible wrote Eph. 6:15 as follows, "Having your feet shod [or shoed] with the preparedness to preach the Gospel of peace."

John explains his doctrine as follows: “It means walking in the straight path that Jesus has set us on. Matthew 7:13-14. When you stand on this Scripture and believe God 100 percent, you are wearing the right pair of shoes. Then you will not be moved out of your purpose and destiny.” 

He teaches his own version of what Joyce Meyer and his other leaders say.  They allege, “The shoes of peace means walking in [unconditional] peace and love with all people…” Of course, we must, “as far as possible, as far as it depends on us, live in peace with all people,” (Rom. 12:18.) Sadly, most believers forget that peace and love can only exist in the Gospel peace of Christ with those who sincerely accept and obey Him. Hence, Gospel peace outside the spiritual Kingdom of Jesus is impossible. The best we can do to live in peace with unrepented people is to let them be when they decidedly reject Jesus' true Gospel. 

Jesus commanded in Mt. 10:14-15, “Whoever will not receive you, [bringing Jesus true Gospel of peace, salvation, redemption and blessing,] nor hear your words, when you depart from that house, city, [church, or person,] shake off the dust from your feet…” This means, “Some people are more inclined to accept Jesus as they are more open to the Truth and have a healthy fear of God to respect His real Gospel. But the evil of those who reject God’s truth must not cleave to us, (Ps. 101:3-4.)” 

Do not let any of their spiritual uncleanness or unrepented sin cleave to you in any way as you move forward in the leading of the Holy Spirit. Godly love and peace are Truth, and thus can never be separated from one another. Understand that the world hated Jesus and it will also hate His sincere disciples. “If you were of this world, the world would love its own… If I had not come and spoken to them, they would [not realize that they are living in a state of sin without Jesus,] but now they have no excuse for their sin… “ (Jn. 15:17-25.)

 

Ramirez teaches a correct and valuable principle when he says we must [endure] on the strait Way, Who is Jesus Himself, (Jn. 14:6.) But this too, is not what the verse, which he refers to as the "shoes of peace," means. The Pentecostal Movement awfully misquotes Eph. 6:15. It actually reads in the context of the English version, “Stand, therefore… [resist or withstand the devil’s attacks, wiles, and deception, Jam. 4:7,] having shod [shoed] your feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace…” Other translations say, “With your feet fitted with the readiness that comes [with] the gospel of peace, [readiness to proclaim the Truth of the Gospel.]”

The ‘shoes of peace’ Joyce Meyers or John Ramirez style does not exist in Scripture. Their doctrines contradict, as part of our armor in God, our readiness in obeying Jesus' commission in Mt. 28:19-10 in the leading of the Holy Spirit. We must "shoe our feet with the preparedness" or readiness to evangelize “the whole world, making [true believing] disciples, baptizing them [in water as personally believing disciples;] teaching them to observe all things I, [Jesus and not churches,] have commanded you… and [understand,] that I Am [constantly abiding in you, 1 Jn. 2:20, and] with you always, even to the end of the world,” (Mt. 28:19-20.)

If we fail to obey Jesus’ commission to shine His true Light and to be the preserving, purifying salt of the Holy Spirit, we are not “standing” with our “feet shod in the preparation of the Gospel of peace,” or in readiness to preach the Gospel of peace. And so, we lose a major part of our armor to withstand the onslaughts and deceptions of evil forces.
