Anonymous asked: Hey I checked out your paranormal topic but didnt see anything about mediums. I have been thinking about this lately because of that new show "Long Island Medium"( I know it sounds so silly) but like as christians is it ok to believe that some people communicate with the dead? I know the show is fake and all that but could things like that actually happen?
A lot of “psychics ” are known to be frauds. Research proves that psychics are unreliable with their predictions. In addition, some psychics have been caught using technologies such as caller ID to obtain personal information (such as where a caller lives) giving the impression that they have “insights” on the caller’s life. Taking note of documented inaccuracies as well as cheating activities, man people conclude that psychics have no power beyond the human realm. BUT, is it possible that there are some occasions in which psychics successfully note future activities or provide insights that would not be known by natural means? And, if so, how would we explain these connections to the supernatural realm?
The bible tells us that supernatural powers are exercised by two sources: God who grants such powers to His angelic messengers, and Satan, who in turn grants powers to his demonic spirits (Ephesians 6:12). Since physic activity is condemned as a sinful practice throughout scripture (Deutronmy 18:10-11; Acts 16:16-24), any instance in which a psycic taps into real supernatural power is an instance in which the “spiritual forces of evil” (Ephisians 6:12) have been utilized. In other owrds, a physic who claims to communicate with the spirit world is communicating with evil spirits (demons not human spirits). These spirits can perhaps provide information unkown through other human means.
Christians rightly oppose such practices, for communion with demons is flirtation with deep deception. however, we should not imagine that their powers are stronger than God’s.
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” - 1 John 4:4
Some psychics may tap into supernatural power, but we who know Christ have the Holy Spirit within us. And the power of God can punch all powers in the face with ease. Even the eagle powers from Nacho Libre! HaHA! I’m serious though!
In the book of Acts, a sorcerer named Simon amazed people through his acts of sorcery. However, when a Christian evangelist named Philip arrived and cast out evil spirits, Simon “was astounded” at the power he displayed (Acts 8:13). Simon realized that his supernatural powers were small in comparison with the Holy Spirit who worked in and through Christians.
So, in conclusion. Most psychics are fakes, frauds, you name it. BUT there are some who do communicate with spirits (not human spirits but demon spirits). There is no such thing as communicating with dead human spirits.
ailadgim-deactivated20130322 asked: IS IT BAD TO HATE THE DEVIL BECAUSE I HATE HIM AND I CANT WAIT FOR GOD TO DESTROY HIM
I honestly believe we shouldn’t hate the devil. Jesus tells us to submit to God resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7)
Jesus never calls us to hate anyone or anything.
The only one who has a right to hate satan is God and that’s because God is the judge, not us.
I know this is going to bring up the question: “Does God hate satan? ” So I’ll answer that now: I truly believe that God doesn’t hate satan.
Furthermore. I believe satan wants us to hate. Even if that hatred is towards him, because he knows that hatred will only corrupt.
Hatred does not come from God. & when you really analyze it, us hating satan really has no point. Think about it will hating satan change the fact that satan is satan?
I don’t think so c:
God bless! <3
Anonymous asked: can satan repent?
Hi! From my view of scripture I honestly believe satan is incapable of being saved or redeemed. It’s already written that satan is going to be cast into the lake of fire with the antichrist and false profit where they will be tormented day and night for eternity.
“But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.” - Revelation 19:20
This is what God’s ultimate plan is.&I don’t think God would change His mind about this.
“I the LORD do not change.” - Malachi 3:6
God bless! <3
Anonymous asked: Satan is neither omniscient, omnipotent, nor omnipresent ? Sorry i'm only 16 what does this mean? but if the devil is not everywhere then how come it's easy to think of sin or get tempted into something?
or all knowing, all powerful, and being everywhere at one time)
The bible says sin is what has dominion over us prior to our spirit being reborn, which is through the sin nature that we’ve received due to the fall of man back in the garden. This was power man gave Satan. Satan only has as much power over us as we give him. Over man, Satan has placed deception, lies, mindsets, etc, which are advanced by both demons and by the lives/lifestyles of those who aren’t in Christ. We have to renew our minds. I do not believe it is always, or even usually, directly related to Satan himself or demons but due to the fact we have to make a choice continually to walk in the spirit, which has been made righteous, so that the flesh and the soul would be under submission. In doing so we will also be walking in the Spirit. Galatians 5:6 says, walk in the Spirit and you won’t satisfy the lusts of the flesh.
Anonymous asked: i'm a Christian but a question just randomly got to me today,,umm can the devil tell the future? or is he dumb? and also is the devil like everywhere? or is he one individual spirit? i'm confused cuz like if he can know that we fear him? ,,then? i'm just confused a bit lol
Satan is neither omniscient, omnipotent, nor omnipresent (or all knowing, all powerful, and being everywhere at one time). I think it’s very rare for there to be someone who has battled satan himself but rather we usually fight demons, and also thoughts which come from the fact our flesh is not reborn but only our spirit.
Satan is an angel, who has fallen, and there were other angels who have chosen to follow him. Thoughts not in line with truth trace back to the fall of man, sin. Deception comes through Satan but can come without coming directly from him to you at that time.
And there is no reason to fear Satan if you’re a child of God through Jesus.

Anonymous asked: I was wondering if you could tell me from your own personal experience how you're 100% sure God exists.I am 99.9% sure he exists from all the testimonies I've heard in church all my life&the dreams I have had.But I keep getting this thought from the devil that how do you know God actually exists.I know this is something God kinda has to reveal to me personally&I'm still in the stage of seeking his face to find him.But i'm wondering if you can tell me how you know without a doubt that he exists.
You have faith. Simple. That tenth of a percent is like you said, the devil. Satan is referred to in the Bible as the accuser of the brethren. He’s trying to get deceive you. Satan is the father of all lies. All deception was birthed with him.
Anonymous asked: Hello! I've been having much trouble with fighting off satan- he continues to pry into my mind and draw me away from God no matter what! It's so annoying! One second i'll feel great and so close to the Lord and on top of everything- and then the next i'll feel miserable and alone and back to where i was before. How do i keep satan from getting ahold of me constantly? D: Thanks! <3
Yeah, it’s true. satan and his little ol’ crew can be a huge nuisance at times. But keep in mind, that God has given us (believers) the authority by the name of Jesus to tie, bind, and cast out demons. (mark 16:16-18) Sounds pretty cool, eh? c:
“When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, “Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!” - Luke 10:17
So when satan is bothering you, just say:
“In the name of Jesus I tie and bind you, satan.”
There is sooo much power in the name of Jesus!!!
Also! Remember to put on your armor daily & nightly. &Make sure you cover your self with blood of Jesus.
The armor of God can be found in Ephesians 6:10-18
God Bless c:
