and the Holy Scriptures
In the physical as well as in the spiritual worlds, knowing the enemy
is always advantageous. If you are considering praying in earnest to
receive Heavenly protection against the snares of the evil one, we
encourage you to first acquaint yourself with what the Holy Scriptures
say about evil, possessions, exorcisms, etc.
There are Ten Parts to this Series. Using our Search
Engine, you may find any topic related to demonic possesion on
these Sections as well as in the entire Domain of The M+G+R Foundation.
Once you know The Enemy better, your prayer accessing the Power of God
will be far more effective for your protection, and that of your loved
ones, against the snares of the evil one.
PART 9 [Old
2 Kings 21:6-12
And he burned his son as an offering,
and practiced soothsaying and augury, and dealt with mediums and with
wizards. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking him to
anger. And the graven image of Asherah that he had made he set in the
house of which the LORD said to David and to Solomon his son, "In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I
have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, I will put my name for
ever; and I will not cause the feet of Israel to wander any more out of
the land which I gave to their fathers, if only they will be careful to
do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all
the law that my servant Moses commanded them."
But they did not listen, and Manasseh seduced them to do more evil than
the nations had done whom the LORD destroyed before the people of
Israel. And the LORD said by his servants the prophets, "Because Manasseh king of Judah has
committed these abominations, and has done things more wicked than all
that the Amorites did, who were before him, and has made Judah also to
sin with his idols; therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel,
Behold, I am bringing upon Jerusalem and Judah such evil that the ears
of every one who hears of it will tingle."
2 King 23:24-27
Moreover Josiah put away the mediums
and the wizards and the teraphim and the idols and all the abominations
that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, that he might
establish the words of the law which were written in the book that
Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD. Before him there was
no king like him, who turned to the LORD with all his heart and with
all his soul and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses;
nor did any like him arise after him.
Still the LORD did not turn from the fierceness of his great wrath, by
which his anger was kindled against Judah, because of all the
provocations with which Manasseh had provoked him. And the LORD said, "I will remove Judah also out of my sight,
as I have removed Israel, and I will cast off this city which I have
chosen, Jerusalem, and the house of which I said, My name shall be
Bind up the testimony, seal the
teaching among my disciples. I will wait for the LORD, who is hiding
his face from the house of Jacob, and I will hope in him. Behold, I and
the children whom the LORD has given me are signs and portents in
Israel from the LORD of hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion. And when they
say to you, "Consult the mediums and
the wizards who chirp and mutter," should not a people consult
their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?
To the teaching and to the testimony! Surely for this word which they
speak there is no dawn. They will pass through the land, greatly
distressed and hungry; and when they are hungry, they will be enraged
and will curse their king and their God, and turn their faces upward;
and they will look to the earth, but behold, distress and darkness, the
gloom of anguish; and they will be thrust into thick darkness.
Let us pray...
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us
in the day of battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and
snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou,
Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the Power of God, thrust into Hell
satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the
ruin of souls. AMEN!
