CAN SATAN VEX US AND TAKE OUR LIVES AS HE PLEASES – AND CAN SATANISTS KILL PEOPLE AS THEY CHOOSE?

John Ramirez, Ex-Satanist turned Pentecostal/Charismatic, also says, “Satan has a PhD in capturing your imagination. Once he has a hold of that, he then takes control of your life [with your permission,] and owns it. In his timing, he will take your life out.” John also states that, while he was still a Satanist, he could kill anyone whom he disliked – except those that were “surrounded by fire.” I messaged John when I began replying to his teachings, but until now, he has not answered me.
Although Satanism is powerful, we must never lose sight of the fact that only the God of the Bible, the Creator God of heaven and earth, is all-powerful. It is no greater feat for God to save the soul of the worst Satanist than to save the soul of someone stuck in Christian church religion that leads away from the truth of Scripture. Only the Lord Jesus Christ has the power to give life, and the authority to take it away. No one, not Satan himself, the highest Satanist, or anyone else, can “own your life,” or take anyone’s life without the permission of the One and Only, Highest God, the Lord Christ Jesus of the Bible.
Unrepentant moral sin places us in danger of demonic control, but for those who obey and follow Jesus according to the truthful context of the New Testament covenant, He promised, “...No one is able to snatch, [steal] them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are One. [So, no one can steal or grab true believers out of Jesus’ almighty hand.]” (Jn. 10:28-29.)
Satan is “the thief who does not come [to anyone] except to steal, kill and destroy [when we live in unrepented disobedience to Jesus.] But [his evil can, at any time, be counteracted by] Jesus, Who came that we may have life… abundantly… I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish… [as long as they follow Me, The Light of the world, they will never live in darkness,” (Jn. 3:16; 10:10; 26-30; 8:12.) If this were not true, there would not be a person alive today, (Rom. 3:9-20.) Unrepentant people, (not true believers who “stumble” Jam. 3:2,) can be deceived by Satan to such a degree that he can ‘possess’ them in the sense that his demons can indwell and control them, but every person on earth remains the property of his or her Creator, the God of the entire universe. Demonic possession is like the owner of a house who lets the property to a tenant - in this case, the person who indwells that human body. No matter who the tenant allows to share that house with him, it remains the property of the owner. Rom. 14:19-11; Phil 2:9-11, say, "To this end Christ died, rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living... [In the Name of Jesus] every knee shall bow to Him, [of those in heaven, on earth, and those under the earth,] and [at His return] every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord..."
What’s more, God said in Ezk. 18:4, “All the souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who [unrepentantly] sins shall die [spiritually by his own choosing, and thus never enter into heaven…]” People choose to either allow or disallow Satan to lead them astray and bring them into bondage and eternal death. Free will is the greatest gift God entrusted to humanity. Thus, God commanded in Deut. 30:19-20, “Choose [either] blessing or cursing… for I Am your life and the length of your days…” Only the Highest Judge of the Universe presides over life and death in this life, and in the next.
God knew us all even before He laid the foundations of the world. Eph. 2:10, “We are His workmanship, created [born again] in Christ Jesus for good works, which God, [Who knew who would choose Him and who would reject Him,] prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” If we miss God’s plan for our lives to do His “good works in Christ,” it would be our own choice. But where God is concerned, all His true disciple-followers were “chosen [because He knew who would believe His Gospel and choose Him, Jn. 1:12-13,] before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy [in Jesus’ completed atonement in our place,] and [thus] without blame before Him…”
God knew each of us, and of course, every day of our lives that lay ahead, before we were conceived in our mothers’ wombs. Ps. 139:14-16, “…I am fearfully and wonderfully made… When I was made in secret… Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, [all] the days [You] fashioned for me [here on earth, even] when as yet there were none of them…”
God Alone “holds our times [all our days] in His hand,” (Ps. 31:15.) Job 14:5 rejoices, “Since the days [of man] are determined, the number of his months is with You…” The Lord Jesus might have allowed Satan to do some horrible things to us through our lives. However, God was always there, overseeing everything to “work together for good all things for those who [would choose to] love [obey and follow] Him…” (Rom. 8:28.)
Concerning the “protective fire that surrounds some Christians,” God declares in true Scripture, "I, [Myself,] says the Lord, will be a wall of fire all around her [in N.T. terms, the true body of Christ...]" (Zech. 2:5) Of course, Ramirez’ ‘fire,’ translated into Pentecostalism, refers to super Christians, who speak in tongues through their superpower, their “baptism ‘in’ the holy spirit with the laying on of hands.” It was Charles Parham (1973-1929,) that first came up with the notion that, after the spiritual rebirth through faith in Christ and Jesus’ baptism with the indwelling Holy Spirit, there must be a second ‘super experience:’ a baptism “in” the holy spirit with the laying on of hands with the ‘evidence’ of speaking in tongues. Except for teaching British Israelism, (the so-called 10 lost tribes of Israel,) Parham also taught that “God created non-white races on the 6th day and whites on the 8th day!” Again, I believe in, and experience the Scriptural gifts of the Holy Spirit, but this 'baptism' came from shady origins such as racism to drastically expand Pentecostalism in the early 20th century, not from the truth of the Bible.
God’s true wall of fire has nothing to do with either the Scriptural gift of tongues, or the superpower tongues of Pentecostalism. Wonderful as the Holy Spirit’s gift of tongues is, 1 Jn. 5:18 annihilates this claim. “We know that whoever is born of God [through personal faith in, and acceptance of Christ, 1 Jn. 1:12-13; 3:3-5,] keeps himself [from unrepentant] sin, and the wicked one does not touch him.” Obedience to God’s contextual, true Word is therefore the protection against the onslaughts of the enemy; not the gift of tongues — or any of the other wonderful gifts of the Holy Spirit.
1 Pt. 1:22-23, “Since you have purified your souls [minds or thoughts, Rom. 12:1-2] in obeying the truth through the Spirit… having been born again… through the Word of God which lives and abides forever.” Obedience to the truth of God is our life, salvation, redemption, protection, healing, blessing… Thus, all disobedience through false doctrine is “lawlessness,” or following the will of the devil through obedience to man rather than obedience to God, (Mt. 7:21-24)
STILL, SATANISM CAN DO A LOT OF HARM TO UNREPENTED, UNSUSPECTING CHRISTIANS AND UNBELIEVERS BY LEADING THEM INTO “LAWLESSNESS,” WHICH IS SATANISM
God is almighty and “holds our times in His hand.” And so, 1 Jn. 5:18-19 tells us, “[True believers] are [born] of God, [and if they obey the truth of His Word] the devil cannot touch them. [However,] the whole world, [the church-false-doctrine obeying Christian world too,] lies under the sway [or deception] of the wicked one.” That’s why, although the enemy cannot “take out” anyone without God’s permission, I do not dispute that those who practice voodoo and other kinds of Satanism can do a lot of harm to unrepentant and unsuspecting Christians and of course, to unbelievers who do not know and follow Jesus.
However, let us remember that no harm we do to ourselves and others can be ‘innocent’ or without impact. All wilful, unrepentant sin is fully empowered by Satan and his demons. That is why lies, manipulation, adultery, theft, and underhanded destruction, (all violations of God’s Moral Law of Love,) "kill" just as certain as orchestrated, ritual Satanism, (1 Sam. 15:23.)
We do not have to do rituals and sacrifices to empower our curses, other maliciousness, and “lawlessness.” Lawlessness is practicing Satanism already, (Mt. 7:20-24.) There is nothing more “lawless” than the hatred of taking God’s True Word and making false doctrine out of it. God taught in 1 Jn. 3:15, kjv., “He who hates… is a murderer. And you know that no [unrepentant] murder, [just as any other moral-law violator,] has eternal life abiding in him.” 1 Cor. 6:9-11, “...Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, idolaters adulterers, homosexuals, thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers, extortioners, [nor any other Moral-Law violator] will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were [you,] but you were washed [at your personal, Scriptural rebirth,] made holy [past tense, and thus, fully] justified in the Name of Jesus and by the Spirit of God.”
Satanists do rituals and sacrifices to climb the ladder of power and destructive success in Satan's kingdom. Nevertheless, the higher the sacrifice, (as in abortion, sadism, rape and other sexual sin, animal and human sacrifice, drinking blood, cannibalism, etcetera,) the greater and stronger demons Satan assigns to them, and the greater they become in his kingdom.
Point is, one does not have to be a Satanist to impart strong demons to people. Any gross violation can, for instance, allow strong demons to infest those who were molested, assaulted, and raped. It is a myth that “ritual abuse” is so much greater than “ordinary” abuse. The only difference is, those subjected to “ritual abuse” in Satanism will be abused to greater degrees, allowing more and stronger demons to enter and control the person.
Hence, only the Truth, Jesus Himself and the Truth of Jesus’ Gospel: Who He really Is, and what He really did for all people, can “set the captive free.” Jesus is omnipotent or all-powerful. It is no greater work for Him to save and completely deliver a high priest of Satan, than to save and deliver a “high priest” of church deception.
So, we can either believe the truth of His Word, or the manipulative lies of “deliverance ministers.” Jesus could not lie when He promised all true believers, “He has [past tense, fully] delivered us [past tense] from the power of darkness and conveyed us into [His Kingdom of light.] In Him we have [present tense] the redemption through His blood: the forgiveness of sins.” Jesus’ ministry to the Hebrews were before Calvary and Pentecost. There is only one real case of “casting out” a demon in the ministry of the apostles, and that was from an unbelieving slave girl. All the other so-called “evidence” of “casting demons out of believers,” is taken out of context. Demons that attach themselves to the sick, do not indwell believers, and can be “cut off” and “cast away.” But true, Moral-Law abiding believers cannot have indwelling demons, (1 Cor. 6:13:20.)
What I must add is that, according to the depths Satan had control over a person, even after true, personal salvation and thus Jesus’ total deliverance from darkness, the enemy will attack and harass him or her. Not that the devil has any power over the person anymore, but God will allow it to “test” the person’s commitment to Him. This is the “baptism of fire,” which Jesus and all His true disciples, after especially the water baptism of disciples, will encounter, “(Mt. 3:11-12; 4:1-10; Mt. 20:22-23.)
In all pagan religions, (always based on the Old Babylonian roots of ancestor worship,) as well as in Christian church circles, lawlessness, (or doing with God’s Word and Spirit what they want,) superstition, fear, and witchcraft rule rampant, (Mt. 7:21-24; Mt. 24:4-5; 11-14; Rev. 17:5; 1 Sam. 15:23.) All their gullible church members are subjected to Satanism through their leaderships, who are secret (and open) adherents of masonic orders. Masons are Satanists. Those who participate in such idolatry and witchcraft, either knowingly or unknowingly, invite Satan into their lives, (Deut. 18:10-13.) This is why the “mother church” openly worships the spirit of the goddess “Mother Mary,” the third ‘person’ or feminine ‘holy spirit’ in their trinity.
The real mother of Jesus died and was buried, and is in heaven with Him through His blood-atonement for her as well. When someone associated Jesus with His human family, He said in Mt. 12:47-50, “... Whoever does the will of My Father… is My brother, sister, and mother.” Catholics also worship their so-called dead ‘saints,’ who are actually demonic spirits, which masquerade as their ancestor intercessors, (2 Cor. 11:4.) Trying to communicate with the deceased violates God’s Moral-Law commandments, (Ex. 20:1-6; Deut. 18:10-13; Eccl. 9:5-6; 2 Cor. 10:14, 19-22.) Yet, ignoring God’s Moral Law completely, Catholics also bow down to, and thus worship their religious statues. Powerful demons are attached to these statues, sacred images, and other talismans such as ‘lucky’ charms, which allegedly give them spiritual power and magic, (2 Cor. 11:14.)
Besides the many false doctrines, which God also terms as “idolatry and witchcraft,” (1 Sam. 15:23,) the brazen witchcraft in Pentecostal and other churches is just as unbelievable. For instance, I heard of a pastor in South Africa, who follows “bishop” Charles Mason’s example of making and selling voodoo and other prayer-dolls such as “spirit” dolls and “worry” dolls, in church. This pastor lures believers from all over South Africa, telling them to bring little Barbie and other dolls they can buy at shops. He then ‘prays’ over the dolls for money, “giving the toys the power” to “become” the people’s enemies, whom they then curse to destruction, sickness, torture, and death.
Some "spirit" dolls are “good luck” talismans used in witchcraft for protection, etcetera. They are often very ornate dolls, bought by unsuspecting people. "Worry" dolls can be small, cute, dressed in traditional dress - and even made from paper, etc. Wikipedia wrote, "...Worry dolls are given to sorrowful [people.] They would tell the doll their sorrows, fears and worries, then hide it under their pillow during the night. After this, they will literally sleep over the whole thing. The next morning, all sorrows are said to have been taken away by the worry doll. Worry dolls also play a role in modern pediatrics and child psychiatry. During a psychological interview with children, some counsellors offer a worry doll to the child as some kind of imaginary, but trustworthy "listener" and "contact person". The doll, in turn, will work for psychiatrists, psychologists, educators and parents as some kind of "agent" and "trouble-shooter" between child and adult. Worry dolls are sold in huge quantity in Guatemala and Mexico. Nuns and poor children sell them to tourists as souvenirs. The dolls are quite popular since they are so small and thus easy to carry around." These might seems like "dolls from the light," while they are voodoo dolls from the kingdom of darkness.
Can any of these objects really be cursed, because Satan cannot ‘bless’ anything or anyone to be “powerful?” Paul answered this question in 1 Cor. 10:14, “Beloved, flee from idolatry… (verses 19-22,) Am I saying that an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? Rather, that the things [like candle and smoke prayers, etcetera, which Christians and] Gentiles sacrifice [to these statues,] they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons.”
The conclusion is, if you “fellowship” with demons, and frequent places, (churches too,) where you open yourself to spiritual harm, Satanists can do nasty supernatural things to you. Still, only the Highest God, Creator of heaven and earth, decides who lives and who dies, and when exactly this happens. Trouble is, we can never play with the dangerous devil and his demons. We never know when “the measure of sin, [which God allows to give us time to repent,] is filled up” — after which, God allows the devil to take the lives of wilfully unrepentant people,
“CURSING MOSQUES AND OTHER TEMPLES, (OVERLOOKING EVIL CHURCHES,) AND REMOVING THEM?”
[Acknowledgement to the person who published this photo]
Ex-Satanist John Ramirez also alleges, “[A mosque (like most churches) is] …a demonic place where the devil meets with his people, yet we pass by it every day and brush it off like it’s nothing instead of laying hands on it, cursing it to the root, and removing it. When was the last time we prayed and took inventory of our own neighborhood and claimed it for Jesus Christ and believed God to turn it around?”
If Ramirez and his friends from the Charismatic Movement has the “tongue-power” to “destroy all ungodly places and to remove them,” why is a single evil establishment still standing in this world?
To answer this, I refer to Paul’s warning in 2 Cor. 10:6; 2 Cor. 10:13, “...Do not think beyond what is written that none of you may be puffed up on behalf of one against the other… [Thus,] we will not boast beyond measure, but within the limits of the sphere which God appointed us...” It is a terrible sin to assume power and authority, which Jesus never appointed or allowed us to have.
Thus, the truth of New Testament/Covenant Scripture tells another story. First, we do not lay hands on people to curse anyone or anything, or to cast out demons (1 Tim. 5:22.) We can certainly not lay hands on pagan buildings to ‘remove’ them either, (1 Jn. 5:19.) The laying on of hands is to heal the sick, (Mark 16:18.) To bless, (Mark 10:16.) To pray for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, (1 Tim. 4:14.) To set disciples apart for ministry, (Acts 13:2-3.) But the laying on of hands is NOT for ‘receiving the Holy Spirit,’ as was erroneously believed among the first disciples after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. This was before Paul and the other apostles understood and explained more clearly the spiritual rebirth of believers, Jesus’ own baptism with the indwelling Holy Spirit at the rebirth, (Rom. 8:9,) and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which “He [Alone] gives as He wills,” (Mt. 3:11-12, Jn. 1:12-13; Gal. 4:6-7; 1 Cor. 6:17-20; 12:4-11.)
Second, we must understand that God allows the devil the awesome power to keep “the whole [unbelieving and disobedient] world, [who choose to believe and obey the will of the devil,] in his under his deceptive control, (1 Jn. 5:19.)
Third, Jesus never sanctioned or commanded His disciples to “destroy and remove” physical pagan temples or places. He declared in Jn. 18:36, “My Kingdom is not of this world, [it has no such origin or source.] If My Kingdom were of this world, my servants would [physically] fight...” That’s why He commanded us to pray for the salvation of all unsaved people. As His instruments on earth, we must also preach His true Gospel to the whole world to “let His Kingdom come [in the ‘hearts’ and minds of all people, Mt. 28:19-20.]”
Fourth, Paul annihilated this Kingdom-Now doctrine in 2 Cor. 10:3-6 when he explained, “…Our weapons are mighty in God for pulling down [not casting out,] strongholds [or false beliefs, fortified by brainwashing and the convincing of evil spirits in the minds of people to bring them His Scriptural truth. Thus, we must] cast down [not cast out] arguments [false doctrines and other beliefs,] and every high thing that exalts itself against the [saving, redeeming, blessing] knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…”
Therefore, Jesus’ spiritual Kingdom is definitely not a “physical territory we occupy here on earth” as all churches teach. That teaching stems from the Kingdom-Now deception, which confuses Jesus’ Spiritual Kingdom with the physical nation, country, and temple of the Old Testament Covenant. That’s why Charismatics believe they can declare they are “bringing the entire physical world under their dominion before Jesus’ return.”
Because Jesus’ Kingdom is spiritual and not of this world, Jesus never gave His disciples the authority or permission to “save the whole world automatically” without the preaching of the true Gospel, to force people to their knees before Him, compel them to serve Him, or ‘cast down physical strongholds’ such as satanic covens and mosques – overlooking the evil churches of this world. In That Day when Jesus returns, “every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that He is Lord,” but not before then. In That Same Glorious Day, “when the seventh angels sounds… The kingdoms of his world will become the kingdoms of our Lord Jesus,” not before then, (Rev. 11:15.)
