[quote=“MyK, post:1, topic:8176”]I’d like to ask experienced Magicians,
of your useful/successful/proven ways, means, tools etc.
to verify what the spirits are saying/appearing.
Having had some Christian education earlier in my life
I’ve been threatened and imprinted that
demonic entities always try to deceive you.
My experience tells me they are not that bad,
but still old belief is very deep routed and
may hinder performance when start working with them
proactively by evocation etc.
So… I thought it’d be great if you would kindly share such information
and it might help other beginners like me too…[/quote]
This is a smart question because I have noticed that some people automatically believe spirits simply because they look beautiful or powerful, or sound intelligent or otherwise trustworthy and benevolent. Now you mentioned that you are coming from a Christian background so let me appeal to you on that level of understanding and talk to you in a way that will make sense and have some authority to you.
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” - 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
So, by this verse it becomes apparent that a person or spirit may appear to be good, in order to deceive you. Therefore you should not automatically trust a spirit.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” - John 8:44
So here we see that Satan is not only a liar, but the father of lies and there is no truth in him. Think about politicians for example, notice how some of them are experts and making something bad sound good by using clever wording.
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.” 1 John 4:1-6
These verses explain that there are basically two different types of spirits, those that are of God and those that are not. Those that are of the truth, and those that are of error. It also explains how to determine which is which by giving you a way to test them. It also mentions something about the spirit of antichrist and I believe the following verse expounds upon that type of spirit a little bit more, observe:
“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.” 1 John 2:22,23
In this verse you should understand that Christ means Messiah. The idea is that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, he came to this earth to die on the cross for our sins, he was buried and rose again to life. Even though we are all sinners and the punishment for our sins is death and hell, God loved us so much that he sent his own son to pay that punishment for us. We cannot earn our way into heaven by doing good deeds. The only way we can be saved is by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, it’s only by faith. And he gives us the free gift of eternal life. So somebody that denies that Jesus is the Messiah, is antichrist.
“Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?” - 1 Corinthians 10:18-22
This verse is basically pointing out that an idol is nothing, however when you make sacrifices unto an idol, you are actually sacrificing unto a devil. It goes on to say that you cannot be on both sides. Either you are with the devils or you are with the Lord. One or the other, not both. Also another point to add is that when the bible uses the words devils, unclean spirits, deceiving spirit etc. it is referring to what we would normally call a demon.
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.” - 1 Timothy 4:1-5
Now this particular verse gives us an example of a lying spirit and some of the things they might teach such as abstaining from meats for example. Of course this is just one example and there are all kinds of doctrines of devils, or false doctrine. So long story short, it is good to question and test every spirit as opposed to sticking your head in the sand and being purposefully ignorant. I think based on the context of the bible in general, the purpose of these spirits is to lead as many people to hell as possible and prevent them from receiving the free gift of eternal life by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
