How to Discern Evil Spirits

Spiritual War


Exposing occult practices in the church

“I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, For You have considered my trouble; You have known my soul in adversities, And have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a wide place.” (Psalm 31:7-8, NKJV)

Christians exposing the occult

Ways to discern occult practices and you can discern occult practices in the bible

Methods of discernment:

• Who was the founder of this modality?
• What was his/her spirituality?
• What culture did it come out of?
• What were their beliefs?
• Who is their God or gods?

There are many occult practices in Christianity that needs to be discerned.  Another method of discernment is the word of God. The word of God is our measuring stick. The more we read the word, know the word and have a relationship with the Lord, the more we are not going to fall into these occult practices or be deceived. If it is not in the word, then don’t do it.

Remember, narrow is the path. No wonder Jesus said: “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it” (Matthew 7:13,14, NLT). While Jesus is speaking specifically of himself as the gateway to Kingdom life, His words also seem to communicate a pattern observable in all of life. Constriction must precede expansion and the journey to the wide-open places God ordains necessitates a journey through the narrows.

The world is going to tell you differently and the church sometimes can be wrong as well but if it is not in the word of God, then do not do it.
