    Paul says towards the end of the book of James that anything that doesn’t involve getting to know Jesus is rubbish. In relation to the invisible realm that is always fighting a very intense battle around us, anything that doesn’t bring us closer to God brings us closer to the dark one. What are your thoughts on the subject…

    I totally agree! There’s so much going on and the western world is sooo oblivious to most of it, although, from what I’ve heard the demonic realm is much more active in other parts of the world. Quite often too, a demon would diguise itself as something nice, comforting and familiar (the spirit of a relative for example). Satan knows how to twist his lies so that it looks like truth, even to a point where it looks Christian friendly. That’s why it’s so important to read the Bible frequently and double check everything you hear. Especially today when a new New Age idea pops up every minutes and is endorsed by Oprah :o . So many of these open doors for demons and satan’s lies to slip in. They can be very comforting and give you a lot of good things in this life, but still lead you away from Christ.

    The idea you’ve brought up really made me question what I was doing with EDm in my life. I was totally worried I was just clinging on to Satan’s lies after being saved and slowly being brought back into a life of sin. Then I found God’s DJs! :D

    As some of you may know and some of you may not know I work with troubled youth and they have many disorders. But I have started to work with a new young man over the past couple of months that I have seen the demon in him. So I have to be very careful around this young man always asking Jesus to protect me and also praying when I leave work that nothing has clung on to me.

    I do believe in another realm were there is a battle going on around us. It is not just happening in other countries but it is happening in our work places and in our homes. We live in a world that plays with fire everyday with the music we listen too, down to what we watch on TV.

    Now I think this is were our discernment comes into play and asking for it and listening to the spirit when we feel like something is not or has a heavy enemy influenced base and we need to ask for the protection and ask for war angles to stand by our sides like big spiritual bouncers.

    I know when mixing this music I could be playing with fire, But it is hard when I feel led too. I pray that I am not listening to the wrong person…

    Blessing all

    That is my 2 cents

    They say if you play with fire you will get burnt.. I know for fact that Jesus is a consumeing fire, and the blood of Jesus is what keeps us safe.. so claim the blood of Jesus over your life.. and that should keep you safe…

    here’s a rhyme I came up with to remember it…

    “Evil will flee from my soul, as the blood of Jesus takes control”

    dose anyone want to contest weather or not there is any truth behind that statement..

    This is a GREAT topic & discussion…

    I will just say that my church from home has an AMAZING series on “Paranormal Activity” that clears up a TON of issues, it might just be my favorite topic. If you have some free time you can watch them here:

    You know I read what you wrote shortly after posted it and I have no idea why it’s taken me this long to respond, so I apologize about that. I really liked what you had to say. It is so true. I love the Bible and its message but it’s not always clear and with Satan taking the truth and twisting is just a little bit off to where we don’t even recognize the alteration, it’s scary. I’ve heard that if you’re not careful Satan can use scripture against us. I think that’s where hardcore religious people misquote the Bible or its meaning to judge and persecute people.

    It is a constant battle against the sinful nature, being bombarded everyday with the worlds ways and it shows no mercy. One thing that has given me comfort is when a close friend told me for one that where ever God is demons are not, hence when we pray or read the Bible or WORSHIP :) and also, that we know Jesus has already won the war. Another thing that helps me and keeps me on guard is that Satan isn’t just a co-worker I don’t get along with, or an atheist preaching against God, he is someone who wants to kill me and wants my soul and will do whatever it takes to not let me serve and reach the Kingdom of Heaven.

    I thank you very much for your post and sharing your heart a bit. I also liked the Oprah comment haha Take care and God Bless JBradintheghetto

    Unfortunately JBrad, this is a horrible misconception – that demonic activity is more active elsewhere. Couldn’t be farther from reality. It is the Western world what has been a concentrated focus of demonic attack for centuries, largely due to our Christian heritage. The “rest” of the pagan world is exactly that . . . separated from God, thus it’s Satan’s objectives to separate those seeking Him. Our condition of oblivion is merely our depravity . . . a social conditioning. God identifies His “people” as dying because of a lack of knowledge. We are complacently sitting back in our depravity and neither understanding or motivated to “take the bull by it’s horns.”

    I think i used the wrong words. What i mainly meant was that satan and his demons do better at hiding in this half of the world making it so we don’t recognize them, although im sure in other parts of the world they dont know any better either.
    In anycase, I had a recnt encounter with a demon. Although i do believe I can never be demon posessed as a follower of Christ, I still believe very much that i can be domonized as long as i open a little door for the enemy to get in. In any case, I’ve been having a lot of very negative thoughts lately, and I was starting to think i was clinically depressed. It certainly wouldnt be the first time this has happened to me, but is the first time since i gave my life to Christ (about 4 months ago). My girlfriend was visiting from out of town and sleeping in my sisters room and my mood was seriously effecting our relationship, and we went to bed really upset. so i prayed that God would show what was wrong and how to fix it and while i was still praying i hear my girlfriend coming down the stairs so i quickly finished up my prayer and she came in and we started talking. I finally told her about some of the self destructive thoughts i was having. It was really scary looking back because as i was thinking about hurting myself, it didnt even bother me. I knew it was wrong, but i didnt feel bothered by the idea. At that point, she told me that it wasnt me and that i need to let go of whatever was in there. She prayed for me that the whatever negatives ties i had in myself be broken and while she was doing that i felt whatever it was shudder. The name of Jesus seriously scared this thing. then she left me my room to pray alone and partially because she was scared. I struggled with it for about another hour just telling it to leave me, and asking God to protect me.
    Since then (about 3 days ago) I havent had any of these thoughts, and i feel so light. I’ve been dancing around and smiling again. It’s so amazing to see how awesome God is and how he answers my prayers. He blows my socks off constantly with his faithfulness even when i’m stumbling and my faith is wavering.
    Vigilance is so important. We cannot afford to be relaxed as Christians. Always be on your gaurd and put on the armor of God every day.
