THE MINISTRY DECEPTION OF FALLEN ANGELS
Emmanuel Omoobajesu was once a very powerful occultist. Satan gave him the name “Bag Of Wickedness.” Emmanuel was saved by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who appeared to him and changed his name to Emmanuel Omoobajesu which means in Yoruba language (Nigeria), “Son Of King Jesus.”
Holy Father, we thank You for this moment. We thank You for the power of Your Word. We thank You for the power of the Holy Spirit. In this dark dispensation, a lot of voices are sounding in the ears of people in these latter days; and unless Your Holy Spirit intervenes, that is when we can identify Your own voice out of the whole lot. And Lord, as I go into this deliberation in this message, let Your Holy Spirit minister grace and victory unto Your people as they listen. And I give You the praise, even now in Jesus' name. Let every light that the light of Your salvation will shine in every darkened soul that this will be a turning point to every listener to this message. And I give You the praise Lord in Jesus' name. Amen and Amen! Praise the Lord.
Well, the title of my message to you is taken out of my experiences in the darkness of this world before Lord Jesus saved me. It is titled "The Ministry Deception Of Fallen Angels" or "The Government Of Satan.” I guess we have a duty to even know the origin of the angels.
The angels, we understand, were creations of God like we are men and women. The angels are creations of God, but we understand from the Scriptural view that some of these angels rebelled against God during one eon of eternity with God.
And the Bible summed them up to be about 1/3 of the total angels in Heaven, and they were driven away from Heaven and they were cast down into the earth. And some of them found places of abode, not just in the earth, but in some other Heavenly bodies where they chose their place of abode.
So for us to be able to understand this part of my life testimony, I like to associate it with much of Scriptural and Bible references. So if you see me doing that, do not think that I'm preaching to you, but I'm just trying to share with you what God has done in my life and has a great deal to do with the Word of God.
So I like to read from the Bible and that is in the book of Hebrews 1:4-14 Being made so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5 For to which of the angels said He at any time, You are My Son, this day have I begotten you? And again, I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son? 6 And again, when He brings in the first-begotten into the world, He said, And let all the angels of God worship Him. 7 And of the angels He said, Who makes His angels spirits, and His ministers a flame of fire. 8 But to the Son He said, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever: a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. 9 You have loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness above Your fellows. 10 And, You, Lord, in the beginning, have laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Your hands: 11 They shall perish, but you remain; and they all shall wax old as does a garment; 12 And as a clothing shall you fold them up, and they shall be changed: but You are the same, and Your years shall not fail. 13 But to which of the angels said He at any time, Sit on My right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
That's a big question to be answered by a theologian. But I like to share with you these experiences for I know this will be valuable and it will be a great blessing to your souls.
Now, let us know a little bit about the government of Satan. Before we know about the government of Satan, we need to know about the government of God: the Creator of all universe.
We all have the knowledge of the Trinity:
God - The Father;
God - The Son;
God - The Holy Spirit.
The God who created human beings, according to the Bible, in His own image and likeness. Likeness, in the sense that we are a Trinity in ourselves as God is a Trinity in Himself.
We Have The Flesh.
We Have The Soul, and
We Have The Spirit, as human beings;
So God, the Father; the Son; and the Holy Spirit.
When Satan and the rest of those angels rebelled against God in Heaven and they were driven away out of that place, we begin to see Satan trying to organize himself and trying to organize all these Fallen Angels along with him into groups and divisions and regions which I cannot enumerate here one out of another.
I want to expose the many deceivers in this world who use the name of angels as a cover to do evil.
In the Bible, God's eternal testament, Paul wrote in the epistle to the
Colossians 2:18-19 "Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.”
In my experience in the darkness of this world when I was learning the art of magic and after my graduation, I realized that the devil put his government as a counterfeit. I'm not saying a duplicate but a counterfeit: a counterfeit of the kingdom of God.
He has his own Trinity yet there are four personalities in this Trinity. So I may call the arrangement of Satan's government a Quadruplicate government or a Quadtrinity if you like to use that language.
The person of the devil, as magic presented him, is quite different from the Word. The Bible eternal authority exposes him and we must not forget that the Bible is a God-inspired Word of truth and Satan who himself the author of magic is the father of all lies.
The Bible told us in John 8:44, “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."
Jesus called him "The Father of lies".
The Bible confirmed to us, that is what Lucifer, the son of the morning is, who is the devil but the magic does not admit it. Magicians said that when God cursed Lucifer, the curse of God hit Lucifer and caused another spirit entirely to eject from within him and it is this spirit referred to as Satan.
They claim that Satan is not the same as Beelzebub, but in the Bible, the inspired Word of God, the Jews maintained that Beelzebub who is Satan is the Head of all demonic spirits. I'm referring to Matthew 12:24, “But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils."
HIERARCHY OF SATANIC ORDER
This is a Satanic Order as magic presented it. The government of the devil has three divisions which are...
1. The Superior Spirit,
2. The Sub Princes, and
3. The Servant Spirits.
The servant spirits includes familiar spirits which in Yoruba language down in Nigeria referred to as “emere,” that is the familiar spirits and there are some orders which Yoruba refer to “iwi” and the English word for that is "phantoms".
So all these ministers of the devil have their own duties in their offices and they carry them out thoroughly.
If you read Job 1:6-7, “Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it"
And if you read 1 Chronicles Chapter 21 there, you will see the evil that these forces were able to do to the soul of a human being. 1 Chronicles 21:1 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
Now, the four superior spirits are ...
3. Satan, and
The Sub Princes are only 8 in number and they are namely:
7. Eritin, and
These 8 sub princes have directly under their control over 5,000 servant spirits but all of other demons no matter what their number in their millions, they have their responsibilities to these 8 sub princes and these 8 sub princes have their responsibilities to the four superior spirits.
Among the servant spirits are
5. Michael, and
6. Archangel Michael (that Michael is different from the archangel Michael of the planet),
7. Archangel Hanniel,
14. Archangel Gabriel and
15. Archangels Uriel.
DECEPTION 1: DEMONIC THOUGHTS
All these are archangels of the Devil. These evil spirits seek to control the mind of a man in his thinking. They invade the thought of the man by suggestion. The devil can suggest a man's thought and cause him to think aimlessly. Then, the evil spirits will encourage him to carry out the thought until the man is finally destroyed. It is such a baseless thought that makes even a Christian to join occultic groups, secret societies and secret cults.
Some who hang themselves, and in general, those who commit suicide due to the frustration of life and the rest of it, having pushed to their death by demons that natural eyes can't see. But yet, they are in operation. They're so organized and you hardly can notice them.
As a safe guide, we are told in Gospel hymns that the children of God have the right to rejoice which means you should allow the joy of the Lord to be in your heart always. That is whether you have something to make you glad or not, you must rejoice again and again. And so, again I say rejoice!
The reason why the Holy Spirit declare that statement is that the devil does not dwell in Joy. The Devil cannot withstand strength that the Joy of the Lord produces or gives, but anywhere can find Satan problems, tears, sorrows, anguish, or way he can plan destruction, he will be tossing up and down rejoicing.
Nehemiah 8:10. "...for the joy of the Lord is your strength."
DECEPTION 2: MAGIC BOOKS DISGUISED AS BIBLE BOOKS
There are some magical books which deceivers used to seduce people and then they will claim that the books were taken from the Bible: this is the devil's lie in order to destroy souls.
The same deceivers will tell you that the Bible is incomplete and that the powerful books have been taken out during compilation. This is again blasphemy and the snare of Hell.
There is a magical book named "The greater key of Solomon" on the pages 6th and 7th of the introduction chapter, most of these names are there.
Again, in the magic book entitled "Moses’ Magical Spirits Arts" commonly known as "The 6th and 7th book of Moses" there on page 39, there is a name of Eleazar.
And the name of Sacheal is found on page 105 of the book of "The Sacred Magic Abramelin Damaige".
Now, let's talk on publications on magic and spiritism.
I have not finished explaining the case of Michael and Gabriel. Just listen carefully; you will get everything correct.
In the devil's devices to bring men to the pit and confines of Hell, he has made certain men to compile various magical books. like
"The Indian Occultism",
"The Egyptian Secrets" which is commonly called "Our Battles Magnus",
"The Book of the Dead",
“The Book of Black magic”,
"The Lesser Key of Solomon",
"The Greater Key of Solomon",
"The Angels Dictionary", and so and so forth.
If you're searching for the use of these books, you're inviting upon yourself the wrath of God and Hellfire. It is not even safe at all to keep such a book in your library or house as a Christian. The presence of such a book will invite the demons who are behind the powers therein to start tormenting or oppressing you in your ignorance.
If you read in the Acts Of Apostles 19, you will see the seven sons of Sceva, those false prophets. What happened to them when they began to play with the demons?
Acts 19:13-16 Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists undertook to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “I adjure you by the Jesus whom Paul proclaims.” 14 Seven sons of a Jewish high priest named Sceva were doing this. 15 But the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I recognize, but who are you?” 16 And the man in whom was the evil spirit leaped on them, mastered all of them and overpowered them so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
Acts 19:19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver"
And so whether the Holy Bible is complete or not, I will explain fully, for some people would want to confuse you that it was from the Bible that the Book named “The 6th and 7th book of Moses” were detached but this is not so; it's a lie.
The author of this magic book so named "The 6th and 7th book of Moses" was L. W. de Laurence, an American who lived in Chicago during his lifetime. He was once a Catholic priest before the devil turned him around.
The Catholics refer him today as a priest in good standing with the Church. He then began the collection and compilation of these horrible things which Satan made known to him. When he first completed the book, he called it "Moses’ Magical Spirits Arts."
The Christians in his contemporary opposed him in the act and although he reluctantly decided to change the title, he still resolved to confuse the people with the title and the contents of the books, so he called them "The Sixth and Seventh book of Moses."
L. W. de Laurence and the one other man, called "Spencer Lewis," I call them the "Confusionists." They are the confusionists. They have written many books and trying to convince the Christian world that magic is part of the Christian world.
And L. W. de Laurence, in particular, started to teach people that the books in the Bible written by Moses were seven and two of them were removed because they were too strong. He claimed that he had discovered the remaining 2 books. These are the lies many people choose to believe these days and these are planted in the hearts of many ignorant people even today.
I don't want you to be deceived again by the names of these books or by the authors.
I have made you to realize that what is called "The Sixth and Seventh book of Moses" were not taken from the Bible and Moses the leader of Israel's faith was not the author.
Another book title "The Greater Key of Solomon" was not written by Solomon, the king of Israel. The man who wrote them was "L. W. de Laurence"
I could remember after his death, one of his servants who used to be a mass server under him, while he was a Roman Catholic priest, his name was "Luis Clement" wrote other books which he also called "The 8th, the 9th, the 10th, the 11th, and the 12th book of Moses".
In one of L. W. de Laurence’s books, "The Book of the Sacred Magic," L. W. de Laurence was making the point that for somebody to believe in magic especially Christians or Muslims; that you don't tell him or her that his religion was wrong or bad but only tell him to add a bit of magic to it. Then, he said when the person sees the magic working, immediately, he will voluntarily throw away whatever he believes in and deviates to magic completely.
This is the reason why we have various occultic groups and organizations today who congregate in opulence and in the name of the church to perpetuate the doctrines of demons through the practices of fetishes and rituals.
DECEPTION 3: DEVIL’S ANGELS MASQUERADING AS GOD’S ANGELS
Now, let us talk a little bit of angel worship and let's talk a bit about Michael and Gabriel because you heard me a moment ago mentioning Michael and Gabriel as angels of the devil. This may surprise you and you may challenge me to prove from the Bible.
But hold on a minute, just fasten your seatbelt. Don't be embarrassed. When I did mention earlier on some of the archangels of the devil and in particular, by the name Michael and Gabriel, you might have asked millions of questions in your mind. If you are a Christian let me help you. I will explain.
When I was learning about secret magic, it was then I knew the various types of angels and what they do in the Government of Satan. Before I become a Christian, to me there was no such thing as devil's angels. Anyone who mentioned the devil’s angels to me then, I wouldn't be able to quote chapter and verse in the Bible where it was found.
That is why the Bible warns you that you should not allow anybody to deceive you by the worshipping of angels. When somebody, therefore, kneels down to pray, calling on the names of angels while praying, be sure that the person is praying to the demons and not to angels; not to God.
Now concerning Michael and Gabriel, I return back to that again because I don't want to jump over that. Michael and Gabriel, whose angels are they? Let me explain this to you. I want to explain this to you thoroughly.
The name Michael is in the Bible and the name Gabriel is there also. But let me remind you about the early warning that Satan has set his system of government to counterfeit the things of God.
While it is true that both Michael and Gabriel are in the kingdom of God, so also Satan has his own Michael and Gabriel in his Government. Do not forget that the Bible tells us that the demons are fallen angels sent away from God. And since their rebellion and expulsion, they have not changed their former names. Don't forget that!
Even though they are now debased and cursed and bound for hell, they are still known by their original names. When I was in the kingdom of darkness while I was practicing magic and practicing witchcraft and the rest of it, I knew up to six different Gabriels of the devil and about four different Michaels of the devil. Also, magicians like to call the servants spirits who have various types of offices and works.
We read of angel Gabriel in the Gospel of Luke 1:10 through 22.
It was in the temple where Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, When he gazed at the angel for fear and asked him, the angel said, "I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God." (Luke 1:19) The angel of the Lord explained to Zechariah, so that Zechariah would not mistake him for Gabriel of the devil.
But, when the priest could not believe the glad tidings from God, the angel told him that he will be dumb and unable to speak as a sign due to his unbelief.
Let me mention that what I'm saying here: it was not Zechariah who prayed or shouted or called or invoked for an angel to come down. The angel came at the bidding of God.
Where do we first read about Michael in the Bible? Even some people in the Old Testament was given the name "Michael" before the Bible revealed Michael as the name of an angel. So, Michael the Archangel in the Bible first appeared in the Book of Daniel 10:13 and 21 and Daniel 12:1.
Here again, I emphasized that it was not Daniel who prayed or invoked or called for the angel to come down to him. It was God Himself who sent Michael because Daniel was in such a position where he needed God's help.
But, I want to remind you also: Daniel did not see Michael at all.
It was the angel that God sent to Daniel to give him the answer to his prayers that told Daniel since the day Daniel knelt down to pray, 21 days ago, God has sent him to give him the answer to his problem but the devil delayed him. And so God sent Michael to rescue him from the hand of Satan. So, therefore, it was not Daniel who invoked Michael. Daniel did not even see him at all.
Also, many of our forerunners in the faith such as Abraham, Jacob, Moses, David, Elijah, Peter. Most of all these people saw angels and the angels ministered the messages of God to them. God sent those angels to them for a particular reason as in the case was with them.
When Manoah who is Samson’s father saw that angel after the angel had delivered the message and Manoah saw those mysteries, wonders, and miracles, he was asking for the name of that angel.
He wants his identity but the angel simply told him, "Why do you ask for my name? Why do you ask for my name?"
Jdg 13:17-18 And Manoah said to the Angel of Jehovah, What is Your name, so that when Your sayings come to pass we may do You honor? 18 And the Angel of Jehovah said to him, Why do you ask after My name in this way? Yea, it is Wonderful.
The reason being that the angels of God today are not servants of human beings. They are servants of God and they are directly responsible to God.
If you pray hard, I believe God can bid them come and minister to you. But you have no right to command God to send His angel to come and minister to you. God knows what to do; you can't teach Him what to do. Hallelujah!
Let's talk a little bit more about angels.
Angels are there for the servants of God or like the Bible put it as "ministering spirits." And so, God alone can send them on an errand as such.
Now, we have seen that there are two kinds of angels:
1. The angels of God and
2. The angels of the devil known as fallen angels or demons.
God in His love can send His angel to any man and as soon as the angel delivers the messages, he goes back to God.
Then when a person kneels to pray and shout, "Angel "X" come down! Angel "B" come down!" and the angel appears to him and answers him such is not the angel of the Lord but of Satan. It is a demonic agent that has answered such a prayer. We learn from experience and avoid the mistakes of our forefathers.
Act 17:30 Truly, then, God overlooking the times of ignorance, now He strictly commands all men everywhere to repent,
I have seen many people in this dispensation that invoke angels and by so doing lost their mental ability because these angels that they are invoking are demonic agents and all that they will be looking for is watching out for your mistakes. And whenever you make a mistake, they will just pounce on you, they will harm you, they will do evil thing that you never ever expected, and you will be tormented, you will be possessed and you will be oppressed for the rest of your life.
You need the power of Jesus Christ to intervene and to do something great in your life, then you will be delivered.
DECEPTION 4: BURNING CANDLES AND INCENSE
Some people say if you want to see this and that angel, they want you to put some things or aroma on your tongue and burn candlesticks and as the candle is burning, then you shall start praying.
Let me tell you something: Just let me tell you things about candles, aroma, lavender, and the burning of incenses.
Demons take delight in the odor of burning incense, and any kind of aroma. They love it so much. That is the reason why it baffles me when some people would stand up for prayer, whether they are Christians or Muslims or Satanists or whatever I don't care, they begin to burn incense and when you ask them, “Why are you burning incense; for what?” They will maintain is to drive the demons away from them. Hahaha! Such people would be cracking a big joke with Satan!
Magicians burn hemp because for instance, if you want to invoke "Phantoms", you need some high drugs to burn, so as to render yourself at least half-mad before you will be able to see those "Phantoms".
So, some magicians burn hemp as incense to such a degree that due to the strong odor that they start to behave as if they are a mad man in order to invoke "Phantom" spirit which in Yoruba called iwin. Satan himself will probably smoke hemp as his own cigarettes. The odor of hemp which is much stronger and worse odor than the incense cannot drive away Satan and his demons, but rather, attract them in large companies.
How can anyone claim to chase them away with the odor or any kind of aroma or scents? Besides, it is in the odor of these scents that Beelzebub who is the chief controller of the spirit of witchcraft, that causes him to always rejoice.
Furthermore, whenever incense is burning all the time, be it in a church or mosques or any ordinary room or sacred place or house of prayer; if you venture to go in there, you will realize that immediately you enter, your head will swell and your hair will stand on edge.
The reason is that the demon spirits have made that environment their habitation in large numbers and they are at ease. They will not leave that place until those odors of those incenses are gone down completely. It is in a situation like this that the spirit of witchcraft rules with pride. That’s where they love to reign. So, it is a kind of insanity for anyone to think that you can drive demons away by burning incense.
Let us quickly read the Book of Isaiah 1:11-13.
Let's learn something quickly about incense. It is a pity; I may not have the time to elaborate much on what you are going to read but meditate upon it. I'm sure it will be a blessing to your soul. Listen to this very carefully concerning incense,
Isaiah 1:11-13 "To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices, [in another words, ‘To what purpose is the multitude of your burning incenses,’] unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he-goats. When ye come to appear before Me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread My courts? Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto Me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting."
Now you see that a strong word here, the Bible is saying that incense is an abomination unto God.
So, there's no other sacrifice that we need other than the Blood of Jesus Christ that has been shed on Calvary for every soul, for every human soul, whosoever will believe, whosoever will come.
So it's highly unfortunate and this is so sad. A sad thing to know that some Christian churches burn incense in their services. This is highly improper and contrary to the worship of God in spirit and in truth. The burning of incenses means you are trying to drive away demons according to you, that's what you believe. But, as you claim that you are trying to drive away demons, you don't know that what you are trying to drive away is what you unconsciously inviting.
In the period before Lord Jesus came, incenses which the Jewish high priests and rabbi used in the synagogue must contain myrrh which Yoruba people call Ojiya added to them.
These days, the sellers of these incenses often deceive people claiming that the myrrh has been added. But from my experiences with these things in the past, I have known it to be a big lie.
Nevertheless, the purposes of the sacrifices and the burning of incenses have been fulfilled when the Lord Jesus Christ came and was made the propitiation for our sins through His death on the cross. The Bible makes it very clear - crystal clear - that Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice once and for all.
You remember Hebrews 10:6-14 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you have had no pleasure. 7 Then said I, See, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of Me,) to do Your will, O God. 8 Above when He said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin You would not, neither had pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said He, See, I come to do Your will, O God. He takes away the first, that He may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13 From now on expecting till His enemies be made His footstool. 14 For by one offering He has perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
There is, therefore, no need again for the ceremonial burning of candles and incenses. And to continue to do so simply amounts to unbelief in the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ and His intermediatory work as our great high priest.
And as concerning the use of candles of any type, be it a giant candle, dragon candle, anything candle whatever candle, scented candle. The devil that delights in the odor of the burning candles is called Eleazar. It is in the odor of fat or wax that Eleazar rejoices and takes his pride. Don't forget.
Candle is made of tallow which is fat extracted from sheep and cows to produce light. Candles are also made from paraffin wax, beeswax, vegetable wax, and gels.
The demon interested in the odor of burning wax and burning fat is Eleazar who has thousands and thousands of underlings under him.
Immediately, fire is put on fat or wax, those evil spirits that are Eleazar and his common ministers will come to that environment to enjoy the odor. The odor attracts them. That is Eleazar and his common ministers under him will come there whether they are invited or not. They will definitely come. It is just natural.
There is no such candle whether white or giant or dragon or any other types that do not have the content of wax or fat in them. Thus, whenever the wax or fat burns, these demonic spirits will come there in battalions to enjoy the odor.
True Christians do not rely on the power of candles. Let me repeat on earlier warning that you learn from the mistakes of odors.
You who seek the help of angels in prayer, the Bible makes it clear: the new world that is coming which we are expecting that is the everlasting life is not under the sovereignty of angels.
You remember what we read Hebrews 1:13 But to which of the angels said He at any time, Sit on My right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool?
That city, that commonwealth city, that we are expecting in the Lord, that everlasting life is not under the sovereignty of angels but under the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ, our Risen Savior.
The Bible says that Jesus that by His suffering on the cross and His divine humility, God has highly exalted Him and has given Him a name that is above every other names. That in the name of Jesus Christ every knee shall bow Hallelujah! The name of Jesus Christ is above every name, above the names of trees, leaves, and roots. Above the names of angels, above the names of any name big personality, Bishop you know around, above the names of witchcraft, above the names of wizards, above the names of familiar spirits, above the names of masquerades or idols, above the names of priests and prophets, even above the names of angels.
The Bible says, "At the name of “Jesus”, every knee shall bow." It is a compulsion. Nothing can resist His name.
His name is light and this light is the light of men. And light shineth in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not.
Therefore, if you're a prophet or a Muslim priest which is commonly called an Imam in Nigeria or any man for that matter shall call the names of angels or Malayka as the Muslims will call them, several times in an attempt to drive away Satan, that person is only wasting his time and is deceiving you. There is a spirit of deceit in that individual.
And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever man or woman, white or black, green or yellow, or aborigine shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever man or woman, white or black, green or yellow, or aborigine shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Some people do write to me some time, "Please give me some Holy names to be calling in my prayers."
Well, you know what I do. I replied and I simply tell them the only Holy name I know is the name of “JESUS " because the Bible told me, "God has highly exalted Him and He gave Him a name that is above every name."
So, the only Holy name I know is the name of Jesus. So Jesus is the only Holy name given on earth and in Heaven and through this name alone we have salvation, we have blessings, we have hope, we have eternal life.
Now, a little bit, let us discuss the power in the name of Jesus Christ.
Many do say, "Oh! God has power. Satan has power. This has power and that has power."
I always tell them frankly, "I do not believe that God has power and I do not believe that Satan has power either."
"Oh, you see what I believe then?”
I do not believe that God has power, I do not believe that Satan has power. All that Satan can use and you wish you call power is tricks.
But God has no power because God is the power. God Almighty is the power. So, if there is anything called a power that is God. So if you say God has power, it is a misconception or misuse of language.
Here, I'm not trying to pour out some intellectual gymnastics but I just want to make crystal clear: God does not have power. God is power.
So, the Bible says "Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation." that is human language that we can understand.
That's why it was framed that way. It should have been better said, "Jesus Christ is the power onto salvation".
THE NAME OF JESUS IS LIKE A NUCLEAR BOMB
I recall a meeting on occultism held at the Lagos, Bar Beach in Nigeria before I become a Christian.
All the high ranking occultists in Nigeria were present and among them were some of traditional rulers from all over Nigeria. Thus, from every part of the country, we all came and assembled in Lagos, Bar Beach in our demonic regalia while our evil powers made us invisible and we were just settling down on the beach to start a meeting when a man came to pray on the beach. Though we were invisible to him, we could see him clearly.
Unknowingly, he started to march on the members seated on the sand. We were all infuriated; we were all upset and a person in our assembly was ordered to deal with him. And instantly, he just got up and gave the intruder a heavy slap.
The man started to feel dizzy, confused, and on realizing this, the man cried out aloud and he shouted, "JESUS!"
The echo of his voice ruptured the silence of the night. What happened? What happened after that?
As soon as he shouted that name "Jesus," the name "Jesus" was called. And a ray of light came out of his mouth and disappeared into the Heavens.
We all sat down looking at what will happen next.
After a few moments, a light reappeared out of the sky coming back to the earth The light again exploded like an atomic bomb in the mid sky and subdivided into various parts.
The light came directly towards us. This light encircled our gathering on the beach which was supposed to be in darkness, in total darkness. But the light encircled our gathering there and made the whole surrounding very brightly lit.
Looking more closely, we saw accompanying this light were all forms of weapons of war, chariots of fire, and flaming winged beings. All were running furiously heading towards our direction. We all had to scatter by force. Everyone ran away. The chariots were chasing each of us home.
All of this happened within the twinkling of an eye. Believe it or not, your unbelief cannot change the truth of God.
The Bible said, "Forever Oh Lord Thy word is settled in heaven."
There is no name..no name.. And there is no power, no influence, under this Heaven that you can compare to the power in the name of Jesus Christ.
How I wish that many Christians will just know what they believe when they believe in the name of "JESUS." There is something that is very important here that I want you to note. It was not because of this man prayed that he was rescued or just because he called the name of "Jesus".
Truly, Jesus is a very present help in trouble like Psalms 46:1 put it:
Psalms 41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble"
Psalm 50:15 Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me."
Jesus is indeed the highest name; the angels bow down for Him.
Just like. the way we use to sing that choruses :
What a mighty God we serve!
What a mighty God we serve!
Heaven and earth adore Him.
Angels bow before Him.
What a mighty God we serve!
So, the angels bow down for Him and demons tremble and run on hearing that name "Jesus".
Can you call "Jesus"? "Jesus"
Can you say "Jesus"? “Jesus”
Can you say it one more time? "Jesus"
Now if you fail to find God's grace in Jesus Christ, you are lost forever because of this truth: It is written in John 3:35-36 (KJV) The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into His hand. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him"
Concerning those who deceive you that you should light several forms of candles and call on the holy names, read the Word of God says about them.
In 2 Peter 2:1-3 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not"
2 Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption"
The imposter as God knows them to be who give you black soaps, candles, amulets, rings, chains, cross, and the rest of it, they are making a profit out of you.
These are their qualifications. The Bible called them the "waterless well.” What are you doing? I mean, what are you doing in a "waterless well"?
2Pe 2:17 These are wells without water, clouds driven with a tempest, for whom the blackness of darkness is reserved for ever.
You just stand by those things that just carry big names. They claim they study metaphysics. They want to become metaphysician and they condemn everything that is of God and that of the Holy Spirit.
What are you doing with this "waterless well"? What are you doing with his dope that is ruining your life every minute of the day? What are you doing with these evil things that meant you enter into subconscious witchcraft and you cannot enjoy even your night?
What are you doing with this? I just pray right now that God will help you and rescue you from this destruction that is about to destroy you.
You begin to copy animals. I mean, what do you have to learn from animals that cannot teach you the wisdom of God? Because the Bible called them a brute animal that was created for destruction.
2 Peter 2:12 But these, as unreasoning natural brute animals having been born for capture and corruption, speak evil of the things that they do not understand. And they will utterly perish in their own corruption.
Why not return now to your Creator? The Bible told you to remember your Creator in the days of your youth.
And the proof that Jesus Christ is your Creator will be found in John 1:3, “All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made"
Even Jesus Christ who is the head of all the government and power in the kingdom of God, “Through Him, all things were made”.
Now, I like to enlighten you a little bit further because I know some people might attempt to entangle you further in the worship of angels by pointing you to some words like
Jehovah Shammah, and the rest of it.
Then, they begin to tell you that they are the names of some angels because I've heard some people telling me that before that these are the names of angels. But this is not so.
If you read the Bible very well, you'll see the other words like I told you: Jehovah Nissi, Jehovah Tsidkenu, Jehovah Shammah, Jehovah Rohi. All these are purely the original terms in the Bible and their meanings are fully well-defined in the Bible.
So, therefore, they are not the names of any angels at all like Jehovah Jireh was found in Genesis when Abraham was to sacrifice his son, Isaac. And God gave him a ram instead. So Abraham has that Jehovah Jireh. But when the son was even asking him a question and he told him, "Jehovah will provide." Jehovah Jireh: Jehovah will provide.
And Jehovah Shalom, Shalom means peace that is Jehovah of peace, the "Lord of peace".
And Jehovah Tsidkenu means Jehovah our righteousness, the “Lord our righteousness”.
The word Jehovah means "Lord." Jehovah Nissi which was a language used by Moses after crossing the Red Sea out there the other time.
Jehovah Nissi is a language and the meaning is the "Lord our banner."
So there's nothing like the name of angels in all of these names of God. They are not the names of the angels at all.
So, I say unto you that salvation is not in any angels but in Jesus Christ. Jesus did not die for angels but Christ died for me, for you, and for all mankind, that will believe in Him.
The greater sin, therefore, is the sin of unbelief. Unbelief is a massive disease. Better, let Jesus Christ deal with it.
If you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and that He died for your sins where you have believed the work of God. If you believe, you will see the glory of God.
"Ye the Lord of your salvation
Let Jesus Christ come into your heart.
"By and by your sins will be forgiven"
"Let Jesus come into your heart"
"Just now bury up your doubt"
"Just now reject Him no more"
"Just now throw up open the door"
"Let Jesus come into your heart"
If you wanna become Born Again as you have read above that it's only Jesus Christ that saves. Perhaps you are an unbeliever or Muslim or pagan worshippers. Please say the below words. Say out the confession and after that, please seek for a good Bible-believing church around you and identify with them.
CONFESSION AND ACCEPTANCE OF JESUS CHRIST:
Dear Lord Jesus Christ; I admit that I am a sinner and evil.
I have lost my ways and done many things that don't please You.
I have lived my life for myself only. I am sorry, and I repent.
I ask You to forgive me and accept me as Your child.
I believe that You died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what my parents could not do for me and also what I could not do for myself.
I come to You now and ask You to take control of my life I give it to You.
From this day forward, help me to live every day for You and in a way that pleases You.
I love You, Lord Jesus and I thank You that I will spend all eternity with You in Heaven. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
