Mind Binding Spirits

Mind Binding Spirits

In my bible a while back I looked in one of the footnotes about demon-possession and it said that some forms of schizophrenia were from demon possession or oppression. I have searched this matter deeply, with God, myself, professionals and media sources. What I have found is the source of demonic power. It lies in strongholds of the mind and institutions of oppression and lies that have perpetuated themselves throughout history.

Evil spirits seek to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10). Jesus came so that we may have life and have it to the full — now. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). In Him there is no darkness, falsehood or iniquity (1 John 1:5). Demons, on the other hand, and the realm of darkness, seek to establish themselves through lies (John 8:44).

There are many lies that they tell us. You may wonder if you are a Christian if you are ever subject to listening to these lies. The devil seeks to infiltrate the truth of the gospel with demonic lies. Most of them come in the form of what we would call thoughts. They can be doubtful thoughts, angry thoughts, unforgiving and hateful thoughts, fearful thoughts, or just negative thoughts in-general. They come so subtly and they can sometimes be intertwined with partial truth making them difficult to detect. Keeping these thoughts at bay can require much mental energy but we are told to take every thought captive and make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). Some fantasy and sexual thoughts that are sinful can also creep in. It all matters what we focus our mental energy on. If you refute your negative thoughts with the Sword of the Spirit — that is, the Word of God, you will be well on your way to victory (Hebrews 4:12). That is not to say-that it isn’t an on-going battle. Negative thoughts will always try to creep in.

If you listen to sinful music, watch sinful television programs, read sinful media, even pornography, albeit, your mind will be full of trashy thoughts. This is not godly and you have the power to say no to this type of mind activity — shut out the trashy media, starve the demons and they go away. "Resist the devil and he will flee from you," (James 4:7b).

There is another form of mental intake that can negatively or positively charge your thinking — how you talk to yourself. If you constantly put yourself down and talk to yourself like you are guilty your mind will become negative. However, if you build yourself up and others up even in your mind you will find yourself better off. The bible tells us not to complain (Philippians 2:14). God doesn’t like it when we are whiny. Like when the Israelites sinned in the desert in their Exodus from Egypt, God was angry at their bitter ungratefulness. God did so many miracles, including the parting of the Red Sea, just for them and they still doubted His power, making an idol out of a golden calf statue they made with their own hands (Deuteronomy 9).

Demonic power can also lie in institutions. Institutions like churches that still adhere to lies told in medieval times to subdue and oppress the poor. I’m reading two books right now that are great examples of this type of demonic stronghold. One is called Papal Sin which talks about lies propagated by the papacy (the Pope); the other book is about Harriet Tubman and her faith in God which allowed her to help herself and others overcome demonic strongholds in society like slavery and racism. Lies that are generated to oppress the people can start out as thinking that you are better than someone else or some other group of people. This fosters hate. At certain points in papal history the Pope has claimed to be infallible. The bible says that if we claim to be without sin the truth is not in us (1 John 1:8).

There are many other lies that have been perpetuated through the church that need to be brought into the light. Unfortunately, many people are resistant to do so because of the power some churches have. I will comment on one thing that has always rubbed me wrong which is the doctrine of excommunication and condemnation that the papacy assumes the authority to carry out on earth. Christ Himself said, "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven," (Luke 6:37). Now I have no right to condemn the Pope or any Popes prior to the current one. I will say, however, that they need to wipe the slate clean and teach doctrine from the bible instead of continuing in teaching things and adding rules that were not and are not from God.

I wish I didn’t have to go into this gray area to explain this but I will. God saves people who believe in the resurrected Lord, Jesus, and His power over death and sin. This means that the only requirement to being saved is faith in Christ. There are saved Roman Catholics just as there are saved Protestants. Only God has the power to judge who is and who is not welcome in His kingdom. Please don’t take this posting as Catholic-bashing. Think of it rather as doctrinal disagreement with some Catholic customs and Papal authority. No one but Christ is infallible and it is a demonic lie to say that any human being is infallible.

In order to cast the demons out of our institutions and our minds we need to focus on positive truth and the Good News of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our minds need to be centered on praise and worship of the one true God. We need to pray to God alone with Christ as our intermediary. Mary or any other saint that has been canonized is not God, they are not to be worshiped or prayed to. Christ was made our priest and intermediary and is the only One who can give us access to God (Hebrews 6:20).
