New Age Channeling
The subject of channeling is quite popular today. Even
Hillary Clinton and other famous people have been involved with channeling, but does that
make it right and safe? Channeling is performed by someone
opening themselves up to other forces, supposedly of those who have long been
dead, and are supposedly benevolent, helpful and kind
"spirits." Channeling is done for the purpose of
obtaining "helpful" information to "guide"
humans along the road of life, or to contact a dead relative or friend.
Hollywood actors, politicians, new age disciples and others
are moving toward channeling simply because it is exciting, and
it is a supposed way of receiving vital information from
"the other side." But, IS THIS TRUE?
Many people will undoubtedly jump to the defense of new age
mysticism and channeling because they have "experienced" the
"reality" of it. Others defend it because they HOPE channeling
is real and would LIKE it to be real. After all, it IS exciting,
isn't it? However, unless you understand what you are playing
with, you could be badly deceived, and even physically hurt.
If you really want to understand this subject, you also need
to read about the Prince of Spirits who
has dominion over this earth. If you don't believe in such
things, ask yourself this: How do you KNOW that the forces some
people are opening themselves up to are GOOD forces? Is it wise
to simply take THEIR word for it? If you were a spirit, with the
intent of deceiving human minds away from the truth and into
ANYTHING else, would YOU tell them the truth? On the other hand,
would you tell them so many obvious lies that they became
suspicious and wouldn't listen?
The human race has free will and the ability to discern and
judge things in the world. It wouldn't be a good idea to lie
about everything because this would show up quite easily. So what
do they do? They simply tell enough truth to make it believable,
but sow in enough deceitful lies to bring about the end result
they really want. By revealing themselves as "good
guys," they cater to the NEED within all of us to have a
spiritual contact and base.
Notice 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 "For such [are] false
apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into
apostles of Christ. :14 And no wonder! For Satan himself
transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore [it
is] no great thing if his (Satan's) ministers also
transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, (appear
to be ministers of truth, helpers of mankind) whose end will be
according to their works."
1 Timothy 4:1 "...giving heed to deceiving spirits
and doctrines of demons."
Once you understand the truth about
death and what happens after it, you will see that it is
impossible for these "spirits" to be departed humans.
These spirits have been around long before any human was on the
earth. They know a great deal about the lives of past humans, ao it
isn't any surprise that they can cough up details about them. Some of these lying spirits (1 Kings 22:22) make themselves out to be
some wise, powerful, ancient forces here to lead mankind to
So what is the purpose of this deception anyway? They are
playing on human ignorance and rejection of the only true spirit
that mankind absolutely MUST have to survive the grave. The great
"Christian" religious counterfeit foisted on the human race by
Satan has turned off untold millions of people, and keeps
hundreds of millions more in ignorance of the true plan of God.
This watered-down Christian facade only tells a part of the whole
process God is working out on the planet.
Either way, the prince of evil spirits is temporarily
blinding the minds of the entire human race, preventing them from
seeing the truth. He doesn't care what people believe as long
as it ISN'T the truth of God. These spirits KNOW full well
the plan of God and the destiny of the human race. They have set
themselves up as enemies of God in an attempt to keep people from
this truth and to try to destroy their personal potential, and
the earth itself. Witness the environmental situation, and take a
long, hard look at all the other systems man has devised as
"solutions" to problems. We are seriously deficient,
and slowly going down the tubes.
All this is being done slowly, because Satan KNOWS that to do
things more blatantly would raise some suspicions. He isn't
in a big hurry so he can plan the downfall of the human race down
to the littlest detail. God is allowing this to occur as an
example to all of us that we, of ourselves, CAN NOT direct our
own course according to the true reality of existence, without
God. He is the only spirit that can take us from the situation we
were born in, to the God Plane of existence.
Is New Age Spirit Channeling, Really NEW?
You might be surprised to learn that the so called NEW age
practices are far from being new. In fact, these practices are
thousands of years old, and have been utilized by mankind for
much the same reasons. Take a look at just a few of the
references to such:
Leviticus 19:31 "Give no regard to mediums and
familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by
them: I [am] the LORD your God."
Leviticus 20:6 "And the person who turns to mediums
and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will
set My face against that person and cut him off from his
Deuteronomy 18:9 "When you are come into the land which
the LORD your God gives you, you shalt not learn to do after
the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found
among you [any one] that makes his son or his daughter to pass
through the fire, [or] that useth divination, [or] an observer of
times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 ""or one who
conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls
up the dead." 12 For all that do these things [are] an
abomination to the LORD: and because of these abominations the
LORD your God doth drive them out from before you."
2 Kings 21:6 "Also he made his son pass through the
fire, practiced soothsaying, used witchcraft, and consulted
spiritists and mediums. He did much evil in the sight of the
LORD, to provoke [Him] to anger."
Isaiah 8:19-20 "And when they say to you, "Seek
those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,"
should not a people seek their God? [Should they seek] the
dead on behalf of the living? :20 To the law and to the
testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, [it is]
because [there is] no light in them."
Isaiah 19:3 "The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst;
I will destroy their counsel, And they will consult the idols and
the charmers, The mediums and the sorcerers."
1 Chronicles 10:13-14 "So Saul died for his
unfaithfulness which he had committed against the LORD, because
he did not keep the word of the LORD, and also because he
consulted a medium for guidance. 14 But [he] did not inquire
of the LORD; therefore He killed him, and turned the kingdom over
to David the son of Jesse."
2 Chronicles 33:6 "Also he caused his sons to pass
through the fire in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom; he practiced
soothsaying, used witchcraft and sorcery, and consulted mediums
and spiritists. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, to
provoke Him to anger."
POINT: Today, as back then, people are seeking answers
to their problems, but looking in the wrong place.
Judges 9:23 "Then God sent an evil spirit between
Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt
treacherously with Abimelech:"
1 Kings 22:23 ""Therefore look! The LORD has put
a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of
yours, and the LORD has declared disaster against
Matthew 4:24 "Then His fame went throughout all Syria;
and they brought to Him all sick people who were afflicted with
various diseases and torments, and those who were
demon-possessed, epileptics, and paralytics; and He healed
Acts 8:7 "For unclean spirits, crying with a loud
voice, came out of many who were possessed; and many who were
paralyzed and lame were healed."
Acts 16:16 "Now it happened, as we went to pray, that a
certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination
met us, who brought her masters much profit by
Acts 19:15 "And the evil spirit answered and
said, "Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?"
:16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them,
overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled
out of that house naked and wounded."
1 Timothy 4:1 "Now the Spirit expressly says that in
latter times (end times) some will depart from the faith,
giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of
Revelation 16:14 "For they are spirits of demons,
performing signs, [which] go out to the kings of the earth
and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that
great day of God Almighty."
POINT: As the above references show, there are EVIL
spirits, LYING spirits, DECEIVING spirits, and UNCLEAN spirits
that CAN AND DO communicate with human beings. Think about the
world's condition right now. Is it really difficult to
imagine how millions of such evil spirits can influence the
collective mind of mankind?
There IS some truth to the concept of channeling, however.
The only true "channeling" we should be attempting to
do is to channel the spirit of the true living God into our
lives. He has to start the process, but WE need to renew this
contact daily and grow to be more like Him. This can ONLY happen when we play by the rules... described in detail in His word, the Bible. Trying to contact any
other spirit is not only dangerous, but it can have serious
repercussions for us SPIRITUALLY, not just physically as the
world shows. We ALL need to have spiritual contact, but if it
isn't with the right spirit, we will never achieve the goal
that God has for us.
So I ask you once again, how can someone be SURE that what
they may be connected to is really good? Unless you know what the
test is, and have the right understanding of truth, you WILL be
1 John 4:1-3 "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but
test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false
prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the
Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has
come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not
confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God.
And this is the [spirit] of the Antichrist, which you have heard
was coming, and is now already in the world."
Please realize that a demon COULD acknowledge that Christ has
come in the flesh, simply because they know who He is. This scripture,
along with many others, teach that these "spirits" would have to acknowledge God's
authority, His laws, commands and His word, the bible. In other words, if they do
NOT teach what the bible teaches, or teach ANYTHING contrary to what it says...
they are lying spirits and deceiving with their words.
This will become so prevalent that, in the future, when
things heat up, people will be so deceived by all this and more
that they will be brought to the point of making war with God
Revelation 17:14 "These will make war with the Lamb,
(Christ) and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords
and King of kings; and those [who are] with Him [are] called,
chosen, and faithful."
This battle will involve millions of people in the middle
east and will be the bloodiest war ever fought...
Revelation 14:20 "And the winepress was trampled outside
the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the
horses' bridles, for one thousand six hundred
The vast majority of humankind will be deceived into believing a false religion... something far different from truth, and will be caught up in actually doing battle against Christ when He returns to this Earth.
Suffice it to say that what you may think about new age
mysticism, there is ONLY a dark side to it all. You need to
