Warming a pew, or even a pulpit every Sunday and Wednesday does not make one a Christian
I know what this brother is talking about is truth. I have dealt with this in my own life and walk with the Lord. Someone said to me a few years ago…“You have isolated yourself”. That wasn’t exactly true because what I had done in obedience to the Lord, was leave an apostate church, along with the horrible sins I saw being committed there, all the while they were proclaiming this was a bible believing “spirit filled church”. When I left, I also left all my “Christian” friends whom I had previously fellow-shipped with. I found myself in a peculiar situation. I was now caught between two worlds, neither one of which I could return to without being disobedient to my Lord and Savior; which was the apostate “church world” and…

If we say we believe in the sufficiency and the authority of scripture, then we must fully obey and practice all of it not just the parts we like.
| AND THEY WORSHIPED THE DRAGON
Revelation 12:9, 13:8 … Satan… deceiveth the whole world… And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb A. According to Scriptures Satan deceives the whole world. He deceives them into worshipping him. It is sad, but yet it is true, Satan has deceived the great multitude into worshipping him unaware.
B. Is it possible to worship the Devil when you do not intend to? Yes, according to Scriptures the heathen who worshipped images and made sacrifices to them unknowingly worshipped demons. -1st Corinthians 10:20
C. Who are the only ones that do not worship the dragon? According to Scriptures only those whose name is in the Lamb’s book of life don’t worship the dragon.
THE WORLD IS IMMERSED INTO THE SPIRIT OF SATAN
SATAN’S SPIRIT IS AT WORK IN THE CHILDREN OF THIS WORLD.
THE PRINCIPLES OF DRAGON WORSHIP
DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
“ The idea behind Satanism is to better yourself and do what makes you happy. As long as you follow the Satanic way of life you can call yourself a Satanist.” Chapter 1, of Satanism 101. In true worship the ultimate goal isn’t our personal pleasure, but to be pleasing to God in all things. Holiness and conformity to the image of Christ is our goal. If our personal ‘happiness’ conflicts with our “holiness’, we will choose holiness. Where as the dragon worshippers almost always choose ‘pleasure’ first.
Moses is a good example of rejecting the pleasures of sin, so he could be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ [Hebrews 11:24-26].
LISTEN TO YOUR HEART?
True Worshippers know that the heart is not a trusty guide, the Bible teaches that it is deceitful above all things and wicked [Jeremiah 17:9] and a fool trusts in his own heart [Proverbs 28:26]. True worshippers do not look to themselves for truth, but to Jesus Christ who is the truth, and to his WORD, the BIBLE which is the truth in written form. All things are to be judged by the word of God, and it determines what is right and what is wrong. Even the ‘feelings’ of the heart must be made subject to the TRUTH of God’s word.
IF WE “LOVE” THEN WE CAN’T BE SATANISTS? Many Dragon worshippers use this verse in attempt to prove that they are actually worshippers of God.
1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. They will tell you, “I love” therefore “I am of God”. But what “LOVE” are they speaking of? Satanists believe in ‘love’ also!
In one statement of faith shared on a Satanists website we read:
“Our destiny is to serve with compassion, love and spiritual faith of our beliefs, remembering to always bring comfort, aid and encouragement to all that come to us for help. We are to heal, give shelter, feed the hungry… We believe that as ministers we are to love one another as we serve all in faith and spiritual fulfillment… We serve man through Satan as Satan’s servants, and soldiers” – From the Satanic Statement of Faith. So we see that just because someone says they ‘love’ and do ‘good deeds’ it doesn’t mean they are of God.
Do you remember Aliester Crowley’s statement: “Do what thou wilt shall be the sum of the law”? Here is the next sentence:
“Love is the law; love under will” You see the Satanists believe in ‘love’, but the love is submissive to the self-will. Where as the true love of GOD is manifested in its submission and obedience to the Divine Will. Christians exalt love above their own will.
God’s love is explained in these verses: 1st John 5:2-3 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
The True love of God is seen in the submission of the self-will to the Divine Will, and this is exhibited in the obedience of the commands of GOD.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John 14:21-23 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him… Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
Anyone who says they love God but are not willing to submit to the Commandments of GOD is a liar. And in truth are followers of the dragon, who is the Father of lies.
John 14:24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
1 John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
THE TRUE WORK OF EVERY MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL.
Jesus said, ” ALL WHO BELIEVE”, not just the disciples/Apostles.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. 26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.
15 And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all…

This is a good series from Roberta Morrison. I’ve been reviewing it and getting a lot out of it that applies to relationships, even here on the WordPress blogosphere, where spiritual issues are concerned. I’ve had to examine my own life to try and understand why, at various times, I’ve had the misfortune to seem to be a magnet for dysfunctional, manipulative and controlling people. Most recently, within the last 3 years, I’ve had 3 people who’ve tried to latch onto me, and begin trying to take over my time…and life in a most aggressive way. I’ve been one of those people who try to be nice to people and as the word says, to try and be at peace as much as is possible, letting love cover all sins. But sometimes, boundaries have to be set. even if it offends the other person, like it or not. As a Christian, I believe the issues that pertain to our personal lives, most certainly navigate over into our spiritual lives, if we are not very careful. We’re all learning….there is no one that can say they are a finished product spiritually. So, what I’m trying to convey here is going to be more than just a cautionary tale, but addressing real problems with manipulative, controlling people, and especially those claiming to be Christians who may be approaching us from such a spirit, through our blogs and other social media, even emails. For example, I’ve had several who’ve come onto my blog, at first appearing to be very encouraging and supporting, expressing their “love” for me, and then gradually, becoming more controlling and aggressive to the point where I began feeling oppressed, and that they wanted to control or have a say in what I posted…..or apparently, even what I thought, and/or believed. And that everything I posted had to be filtered through them, according to their doctrines, and the stuff on their own blogs and websites. Yes, astonishingly, I was being bombarded with “teaching links” from their blogs, that were being sent to me, and also posted on my blog in the comment section; some of them quite lengthy. Even though I didn’t follow through with reading all this stuff, just doing damage control in trying to deal with this was taking up too much of my time…time which I needed for other important things…like prayer, study, and even my family! Apparently, they felt they were the sole arbiters of truth and that I needed their advice on just about everything and that I should be “admonished” by them.
The saying goes, and I believe it, that manipulation is as witchcraft. If someone comes to you, that you don’t really know, telling you they “feel led” to tell you to do this or that…BEWARE! You don’t know that God told them to do that and nine times out of ten…He didn’t! These types of CINO “Christians” in name only, are spiritual vampires…I don’t care how much scripture they have in their arsenal; it’s their motives I’m looking at, and when a so-called Christian becomes overbearing and doesn’t recognize or observe appropriate boundaries with us, we need to set those boundaries for our own preservation and spiritual safety. The bible says, “Work out your own salvation”…not someone elses!
