“What do you say to a man who constantly battles feelings of inferiority, thoughts of suicide, or habitually hearing voices telling him he’s a loser who will never measure up as a husband, dad, son, or child of God?
He tells you he’s prayed, fasted, memorized Scripture, and studied his Bible, but the ideas, accusations, and voices never release their paralyzing grip, at least not for very long.
Do you tell him he just needs rest? That it’s a chemical imbalance? Do you assume he’s schizophrenic because he says there are voices in his head? Or might this battle be something more than physiological or psychological?
Karl do you think this could be demonic?”
This was asked by one of my favorite authors on demonic and deliverance Karl Payne. He is the author of “Spiritual Warfare: Christians, Demonization and Deliverance”
(To order this book, you can get it here – http://amzn.to/2ixEzGx )
Believe it or not, I have gotten hundreds of emails asking me the same thing as well.
Because spiritual warfare is not taught in churches anymore, people think the following..
- That all this stuff happening is bad luck
- Not so good and impure thoughts
- Its just life and I have to deal with it
- I am a failure
- I am not saved
- God does not love me
For many (YES MANY) things are going bump in the night. Shadows are seen, “people” standing at the foot of the bed, a presence felt near by. Bodies moving out of the corner of one’s eye. The feeling of being touched, being poked, being scratched while in their sleep, even sexual advances and yet no one is there.
All these thoughts, feeling and apparitions are happening to you, but you tell yourself this is “normal.” The most common thing you may tell yourself ” these just a figment of your imagination.”
I mean, who really believes in little demons propping up on one’s shoulder whispering sweet little evil things in the ears of unsuspecting people?
Me… Ray Gano … I do.
And you would not believe how many people are suffering from these demonic activities and do not know what is going on.
I mean after all, they are sane people and who believes in demons anyways?
People will ask themselves, what, are we living in the middle ages?
How do I know that these are real? I know because it happens to me as well.
“Hello… my name is Ray and I host demons inside me.” As if it’s “Demon-a-holics” meeting.
What many Christians today do not realize is that Christians today are being hammered harder than probably any other time in history.
I can hear some of you now…. “OH GREAT… Ray is doing yet another demon article. Hey Marge, turn on the 7 o’clock news for me… demons? I don’t got no demons.”
“ I don’t got no demons” … YEP… lie number one from the pit of hell.
For the past 50 or so years demons and real spiritual warfare has not been taught in the church.
Why? Because it is a topic that we do not like, we are uncomfortable with it, we want to sweep all of it under the rug and just ignore it.
This is one of the reason why our world as well as our nation is in the shape that it is in.
The demons have been winning because we have swept it under the rug and not dealing with it like we should have.
A Plague of Demons
Our world is plagued with demons, more so now than almost any other time in history.
Just about everything bad is growing and growing.
One moment you think you have seen the worse on the 10 o’clock news and the next day something even more gut wrenching happens.
Then something even worse takes place.
At one time in history Charles Manson (who just died) was thought to be the worse of the worse.
Today the serial killer’s crimes make Manson look like boy scout. “A boy scout with swastika tattooed in his forehead, but a boy scout never the less.”
So, why is this?
Why is evil running utterly rampant ?
Remember Jack the Ripper? Yeah, he was a bad guy, but today we have crimes like this happen almost daily.
Folks, evil is on the rise like never before.
In fact, there seems to be a point in time when “things changed.”
When was that change?
That change was around the dawn of the industrial revolution.
It seems that from the time of Christ to the beginning of the 1900s the rise of knowledge was at a slow growth. If you look at that period of time demonic activity was also not as bad as it is today.
Suddenly, the industrial revolution takes place and man’s knowledge shoots up into the stratosphere and so does the spread of evil.
What is my idea?
Was The Demon Horde Released 100 Years Ago?
We read in the bible that fallen angels were bound in chains and cast into hell approximately 3000 BC.
Now, the book of Enoch WHICH IS NOT part of the cannon of scripture, but was part of the apocrypha and included as part of the KJV1611 bible states the following…
“…Bind them [fallen angels] fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, until the day of THEIR (emphasis mine) judgment and of their consummation, till the judgment that is forever and ever is consummated.” Enoch 10:12
The book of Enoch gives us a possible clue in the key word THEIR.
Why am I looking at this?
We read in scripture…
Jude 1:6 says…
“And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
Many assume that scripture is talking about the day of judgement that we as humans face.
What happens if the fallen angels had their own day of judgement? In fact, what does that judgement entail?
Is it possible that the fallen angel judgement is to be cast back upon the earth? We do not know because scripture is not clear.
We know that scripture backs up scripture, so we read in 2 Peter 2:4 the following…
“For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;”
I believe that the same angels found in Jude 1:6 and 2 Peter 2:4, were bound for a period of 70 generations. I believe that THEIR time came to be released (judgement) and that time was around the early 1900s.
Another scripture found in Jude also points to this fact. We read in Jude14-15 the following…
“Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, “Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”
This is talking about the Second Coming, but how can Christ, along with us who are the saints, “execute judgement” if the fallen angels (the ungodly) have not been released?
SO, what am I getting at?
Angels were bound, by God, around 3,000 B.C. and based on the book of Enoch. They were due to be released after seventy generations. Their time for judgement came and they (Fallen Angels) were released back into the world again as part of their judgement.
If you do the math, based on the definition of a generation found in Psalm 90, that would mean that seventy generations x 70 years would put us in or around the 1900’s.
It was the dawn of the industrial revolution where we and man began to see an increase of knowledge as spoken about in Daniel.
Wars and rumors of wars spoken about in Matthew and Luke.
The growth of technology and the desire to bring about immortality as spoken about in Revelation.
Is it possible that these fallen angles, also known as “the watchers” have been released?
It is believed that ancient man had technology that has escaped us today. The things they did, the things they built, even possibility of means of travel, all point to a massive amount of knowledge that seemed to die out after the flood.
In fact, pushing back even to the post flood, man’s knowledge really did not progress like it has since pre-flood and funny enough, since the dawn of the industrial revolution it seems that the knowledge growth has reappeared.
The Rise of The Demonic Wars – The Days of Noah Are Here Again
You may not agree with my findings on the fallen angels / watchers, but one has to agree that we have in fact seen have seen…
- An explosion of knowledge
- Weaponry that would kill the world many times over
- World wars upon world wars
- Killer and beast like technology
- And finally, the insatiable desire for immorality
Along with that, the incredible rise of demonic activity in the world today with MANY Christians being plagued and infested with demons.
Fallen angels or not, these things are a fact and we are seeing the demonic wage war on the Christians like never before.
BUT… the sad thing is that because all this is not taught in church, nobody even has the slightest clue.
The church has been lax in their job. Christ tells us to – Share the Gospel, Heal the Sick, Cast Out Demons. (Matthew 10:8)
We have been doing the first one, share the gospel pretty well. The second, heal the sick..yeah ok. But cast out demons… I don’t think so.
What we have going on today is that the body of Christ has got a demon problem, and as I have said, many Christians today are in fact infested with demons and do not realize it.
IF you are interested to go on, I am going to give you some of the basic groupings which will show you the different areas that demons will like to target once they move in on a person.
Take The Demon Test
Look this list over and write down all the demons that you believe are oppressing you, telling you lies in your mind.
Demons love to torment the mind and so many of us let them speak to us in our mind thinking this is normal. But it isn’t. It is being attacked and oppressed by the demonic.
By writing these down, you can see what you are dealing with and knowing the enemy is the first step to the battle plan.
Know this, that deliverance from this is possible. I will be writing more on this in following articles.
The primary demon areas are…
- The Occult
- Mental Health
- Different Kinds of Vices
- False Religions
These 9 specific areas are some of the major areas that demons will try and target once they move in for an attack on someone. These are “games” that demons will try to play on us. These are real life-and-death games / snares / fiery darts. This is why the Bible tells us to always be sober, vigilant, and alert for any kind of demonic activity that could set in on us, or any of our closest loved ones.
