Welcome to fireside chats, where I let you inside my head and hear the conversations I have within myself whenever I come across entrenched duplicitous behaviors in the church. I am going to host a fireside series on duplicity on how I encounter it on a daily basis in my prayer ministry.
Webster defines duplicity as a dishonest behavior that is meant to trick someone.
Duplicity in the church occurs when you the believer knows that something is not right, or goes against the will of God, yet you let your soul convince you that what you’re doing is okay with God.
Notice, I didn’t say demons?
Duplicity is a Luciferan agenda that enters the church through – you!
Far too many deliverance ministers and their brothers seems to be on a witch hunt for a jezebel spirit, yet, they don’t deal with their own duplicitous behaviors. Perhaps this is one of those cases where Jesus is telling you to deal with that 2x4 sticking out of your own eye.
It’s not up to me or a deliverance minister to tell you what’s right or wrong. It’s between you and the Holy Spirit --and how you offended Him at the end of the day. Your soul must deal with this! This is about your sanctification!
I am going to address many topics on church duplicity in the next couple of articles on this blog.
Today, I am going to address the topic of Harry Potter and how its connected to duplicity in the church. I thought I beat this one to death, but the church still keeps bringing this back in. I will only cover the key point of how Harry Potter, or as we call it in our house, Harry Pottie, offends God! The rest is up to you, if you’re out raged then go talk to the Holy Spirit. Ask Him if you or your kids should be reading this. That would be a good exercise in whether you truly hear God or not – or if you listen to your own soul-ish desires.
I work daily in the ministry of spiritual warfare and deal with the occult and attacks from witchcraft. My discernment is pretty dead on for incoming attacks. What I and other people in ministry started reporting on was how are own alarms were starting to go off with subtle entertainment productions, like the Wizard of Ox, Wicked, the Craft, and Harry Pottie. The more the spiritual discernment grew within us for darker battles, the stronger our discernment became, tangibly, for a disdain for these venues of entertainment. I used to really love these genre of movies, The Craft, and The Wizard of OZ was my favorite movie of all time. So what happened? Why the change on spirit in myself and with others in deep warfare ministry?
The spiritual discernment started becoming more aware of witchcraft and how it was seeping in through the cracks of our every day lives. Anything that is in agreement with witchcraft or glorifies witchcraft is pretty much witchcraft.
Luciferan Agendas and Duplicity in the Church
The father of duplicitous behavior in church, just so happens to also be the father of lies. None other than the fallen angel with the title, Satan. We know from Ezekiel 28, and Isaiah 14, that the title of Satan, was originally, the title, Morning Star, or Lucifer, in Latin.
Witchcraft is rebellion to God. The angel with the title (Latin) Lucifer led a third of the angels in rebellion to God. This rebellion and the corruption of Lucifer’s powers into darkness was the birthing of witchcraft. A white witch, good witch, good witch from the east, wicked witch from the west, the pagan witch who solves police crimes, all draw their power from witchcraft. The father of witchcraft is Lucifer.
All witchcraft is from the forces of darkness, Lucifer.
What does that make Harry Potter, and who is this novel series glorifying? Witchcraft!
I know what you're saying to yourself. But I am a mature Christian and I nor my kids would ever get sucked into witchcraft through Harry Potter. It’s simply a children’s book.
Fair proposition. Let’s look at the Luciferan agenda in Harry Potter. It’s right there in black and white, or whatever it is your Kindle settings are.
Let’s take a look at the Hogwarts' syllabus from Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s stone. At the fictitious Hogwarts, a student must study, transfiguration (shape shifting), charms, potions, history of Magic, defense against the dark arts, astronomy, herbology, and flying. The discussion is not to bash this work of fiction, but the point is highlight the duplicity for a Christian.
Deuteronomy 18:10-13 - 10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you. 13 You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.
Go back and re-read the Howart’s syllabus and Deuteronomy 18:10-13 until you see it. This is duplicity, scripture forbids us to do something, and the Luciferan agenda comes in and tells us it’s ok to go against the will of God.
The purpose of a Luciferan agenda is to invert scripture and go against the will of God.
Sorcerer – transfiguration, flying
One who casts spells – charms, potions, herbology (pharmaceutica)
Witchcraft – defense against dark arts (witchcraft against witchcraft), flying
The Luciferan agenda takes something that is against God's will and flips it with a flare of seduction.
Don't be seduced by the lie. Adam and Eve were seduced with the Luciferan agenda in the garden. Folks this is how the occult works. This is one of the ways how the occult recruits, through seductive lies.
The Harry Potter series makes witchcraft look like a lot of fun. It even kindled interest in a lot of children who read the series to explore and dabble in the dark arts of witchcraft. Mission accomplished.
My goal isn’t to convince you of what you should or should not be doing. If you’re into spiritual warfare and you have a crack like this in your spiritual life, I would go repent and seal that crack immediately!
My Encounter with the Demon Calling Itself VoldemortBack in 2010, it was Spring break, and I was leading ministry outreach team from the a school of supernatural team from Bethel Redding. We were ministering to the homeless in the Haight-Ashbury of San Francisco. We were setting up at the Mc Donald’s on Stanyan in the late afternoon to prepare to go out on the streets and meet with street people.
While we were setting up one of the girls on our team freaked out because a homeless man came up to her and identified himself as “Legion”. He was manifesting spirits so I walked over and talked with him. His taunting spirits wanted no part of me, so they went back down inside. The man had a lightning bolt tattoo on his face like Voldemort in Harry Potter had. The man identified himself as Voldemort. I noticed it was another spirit that was up and not the man. From that day on I was always intrigued that a demon chose to represent itself as Voldemort. And with Voldemort were Legion. Off and on I saw that homeless a few more times on the streets. He mostly manifested Voldemort whenever I was around him. I always thought this was an interesting encounter from the Harry Potter lore. Is it demonic? Does it have demonic roots? There is something about Harry Potter that fuels dark angelic realms do to the world wide popularity of the series.
I hope there is a convincing case here about duplicity and how it enters the church through the Harry Potter intellectual property. I know there is even a priest at Yale who teaches about Christianity and the benefits of Harry Potter fiction. The course points out the Jesus like aspects in Harry Potter. Again this is Luciferan duplicity. Forget Jesus, magic is what you need and it does it in the place of Jesus. You can’t fight darkness with darkness. But the Luciferan agenda wants you to think so.
I can speak volumes on Harry Potter and the occult, but I want to keep the fireside chats to vignettes, in a matter of speaking.
Some of you Christians may flame away at me. Go right ahead. I just pray you never have to walk in my shoes to find out why the Holy Spirit has me convicted in this manner.
Next fireside chat I will continue to poke the stick in the hornet's nest as I discuss Christian duplicity and yoga.
