“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6).

The word knowledge

there is the same word used for knowing someone intimately, as in “Adam knew Eve.”
So the correct rending of that text should be “my people are destroyed for lack of
knowing (God) me.”

We need to know the enemy and what his plans are. God reveals his secrets to his
servants. So those who have the lukewarm Laodicean spiritless attitude, will not
know. The basics on Satan are that he steals, kills, and destroys. His way is to
accuse us to God, to others, and to ourselves. What are devils? “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” (Jude
1:6). All of them are not yet in hell and we wrestle against them, bringing every
thought into captivity and subjection to God's word. Now Jesus dealt with evil
spirits. “When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the
foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out
of him, and enter no more into him” (Mark 9:25).“When the even was come, they
brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits
with his word, and healed all that were sick” (Matt 8:16). “And when he was come
out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean
spirit” “For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit” (Mark5:2,
8).He had the Holy Spirit in him. That spirit gave him power over all the enemy.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the
gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach
deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at
liberty them that are bruised” (Lk 4:18). This is what he said for us, today:
“The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as
his master” (Lk6:40). “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means
hurt you” – Jesus (Lk 10:19). “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to
every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that
believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In
my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall
take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they
shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover” (Mark 16:15-18). “But ye
shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be
witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto
the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8). So we see it is the Holy Spirit or
Holy Ghost, even Immanuel or God within us, that has the power over all the
opposition. Here in the bible we see his followers in action “And it came to pass,
as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit ofdivination met
us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and
us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew
unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved,
turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come
out of her. And he came out the same hour” (Acts 16:16-18). The power to heal also
comes from the Holy Ghost. “And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay
sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and
laid his hands on him, and healed him” (Acts 28:8). Now seven sons of Sceva were
attempting to cast out demons yet were did not have the gift of the Holy Ghost or
were baptized into Jesus' name. “And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I
know, and Paul I know; but who are ye” (Acts19:15)? Now they were overcome and
serious beaten. If you do not have a personal relationship with God, do not
attempt to cast out demons! Leave it to the saved professionals. Anyone who is a
Christian can cast out demons by prayer and fasting. I've seen people healed after
being prayed over from cancer. Others received healing only after the church
congregation prayed, as well. “The people that do know their God shall be strong,
and do exploits” (Dan 11:32).In other words, it’s after having an intimate
relationship with Jesus through his spirit and word then you can do great things,
like casting out devils. No wonder some of them cannot go unless one “fast and
pray” (Matt 17:21); which greatly intensifies your relationship and thus faith.
Saints of the most high God I implore you to not only “contend for the faith that
was once delivered unto the saints” as it relates to being saved, but in all
doctrine and authority.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers,against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places” (Eph6:12). We fight a spiritual battle against the
lusts of the flesh and eyes, as well as against the pride of life daily. Here are
some of the elements we fight against in our walk. Remember we are going against
the works of the flesh also. Eastern Religions, fears of all kinds, pride and
self-deception, compromise, self-hatred, insecurities, lying tongue, horoscope
beliefs, unbelief, spiritism, unrighteous competing, sexual impurity, visiting
cult houses, satanic temple, obeah house, voodoo house, New Age clinics, using
ouija board (Tantamount to calling on evil forces), stepping on charms for power,
martial arts (That teach oriental religion and concepts), Yoga exercises (That
teach Oriental Yin/Yang), demonic computer games, demonic board games, reading
demonic literature, Palmistry, Handwriting analysis, crystal ball, levitation,
water witching, black magic, white magic, false angelic visitation, witchcraft,
Santeria, ventriloquism, satanic inserts, Rod and Pendulum, demonic television
shows, wearing satanic Jewelry, listening to satanic audio messages and songs,
evil fellowship, TM, UFO, ESP, mind control, necromancy, alien abduction (evil
spirits pose as 'Aliens'), spirit guides, joining or affiliating to secret
organization, theosophy (A belief that all religions lead to God and hold wisdom),
psychics (Seek God first,he will reveal all things;he has the spirit of
discernment!), gypsies, tarot cards, witch craft, wizardry, enchantment,
consultation with familiar spirits, charmer, self mutation, and many more open
doors. In order to be delivered we must be spiritually minded, thinking about God,
and gaining his peace which passes all understanding Isaiah26:3-4. There are
different Satanic influences out there and here are but a few. “Intelligent corps
are brilliant cult members. They could be future tellers, e.g. psychic and cult
seers.They could tell you what you have been going through and the conditions you
are in. The Israelites were warned by God never to consult them (Deut 18:10-12).
Beauty Corps “These are cult members who possess tremendous seducing spirits. A
look at a man could easily confuse that man. One of them told me that their
targets are preachers and active church members. The wicked corps This is the most
terrible of the three. “Mary was a grade ten student at school. She was the head
of this corps in that school and surrounding area. One day, a student offended one
of the popular cult members. The student’s case was handed over to Mary. Mary
directed the boy (the offender) by evil spirits into a nearby bush. She followed
the boy and physically tied him to a tree. For two days both the parents and the
school community searched for the missing student without any success. It was on
the third day that Mary decided to release him – with a warning not to tell
anybody where he was. Fortunately, some of the Christian teachers discovered that
it was an act of Mary. The case was made known to the principal who was very angry
at Mary and decided to expel her. The principal fell sick to the point of death.
He was prayed for. God healed him. The natural man cannot fight demons. Now there
are Satanists, people with power to teleport their mind into another area, and
witches. The T.V. or internet is filled with many good things, but much more bad
or misleading things. Devils are spirits with greater intelligence than humans, as
even Jesus spoke with them (Mr 5:9). Which other being beside man did God create
with intelligence, much more, greater than that of men? Angels! However, 1/3 of
them fell with satan and some are still with him; and as the Bible said, he and
them that deceived the nations will be cast into the lake of fire at the end of
time - Revelation 12:9. By that verse alone you should know that devils or fallen
angels are the spirits working with satan (2 Cor 11:15). It's hard to associate
the word devil with the word angel, because to us angels are brilliant wonderful
creatures. However, the word devil means "accusers;" nothing more. To have access
to do their evil, they send their representative, satan, to accuse the brethren
before God (Rev12:10). In Job 1:6 we get a glimpse of this political scene in
heaven; "Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves
before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan,
Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Fromgoing to and fro
in the earth, and from walking up and down in it." When God said, "Whence comest
thou" he was saying, 'where are you coming from, give your report (including
accusation).' Satan then answered that he was in the domain of the earth. So his
report would be about humans. If he was in another part of heaven he would give
his report against angels. He and his brethrens were like a bad case of 'tell
tale.' And most often, to make his accusation he had to cause the brethren to sin,
as seen with Adam. The devil could not move a finger against God's man, until
given permission from God himself to afflict him. Remember just as angels have
ranks or orders of power, so does Satan and his followers.

Today we are too distracted to see that the affairs of the earth are greatly
influenced by angelic forces. It’s still puzzling to see a cherub, of all God’s
creatures, to fall and corrupt himself with the merchandize of the earth; makes
you wonder, could men like Ted Turner, Bill Gates, Proctor and Gamble, Meryll
Lynch, Jack Welch, Donald Trump, Larry Ellison, John Rockefeller, Ross Perot, The
Waltons, Phillip Knight (owner of the goddess named company Nike), Warren Buffet,
Oprah Winfrey and all great men of merchandise or influence in the world be one of
these fallen beings.

Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus
saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in
beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy
covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the
jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of
thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast
created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou
wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of
the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast
created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they
have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I
will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O
covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. Thine heart was lifted up
because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness:
I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold
thee. Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by
the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst
of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in
the sight of all them that behold thee” (Eze 28:12-18). The Anti-Christ will rule
by crafty ideas and prosper.

"Principalities are second in command to Satan. They are Satan's lieutenants.

Principalities are fallen angels who were very close to angels like Gabriel and
Michael before the fall. They are powerful and intelligent creatures before and
after the fall. Among top principalities are Demons of Death and Demons of Hell".
"Powers are demons next in command to principalities. They are also powerful and
carry out the activities with a profound deceit. They have the serpent's wisdom,
but not a dove's peaceful nature. The powers are assigned to men and women in
authority since they are also authorities. They try to control the head of
nations! "Rulers of the darkness of this world" These "control human minds and use
human beings as agents of destruction. The demons of power use economy, intellect
and policies to fight people through their government or rulers. The rulers of
darkness use force, violence, and physical destruction to fight people through
their rulers. Rulers of the darkness of this world use three areas of man's life
which were used on Jesus during his temptations and on Adam. Again, they are woth
repeating! They use; "the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of
life". "Spiritual wickeness in high places" "The most wicked in operation. These
demons are highly powerful because they use human beings as agents of operations.
Spiritual Wickedness operates directly through human beings. Their most common
appearance is what is referred to as familiar spirits. “Familiar spirits are
demonic forces operating through human beings who are their members. If not
indwelled by an evil spirit, they imitate the dead and make predictions. Fallen
angels can take on any form they please,even appearing as angels of light. The
deceptive rebel angels often appear to humans in seemingly benign guises: as the
enlightening angel to Mohammed, as the angel Moroni to Joseph Smith, in disguise
as the Virgin Mary in apparitions, and disguised as Enlightening Alien Space. Only
once did men appear after death and only to show witness of Christ's power over
death, see Matt 27:52-53. This happened when Jesus was crucified and only saints
were released at the time. But generally, when someone dies they go to a holding
place awaiting the final resurrection. They can neither communicate nor appear
unto the living. Therefore those who manifest as Ghost or appear as dead relatives
are really evil spirits or fallen angels. TV Shows like “Beyond” with spirit
mediums trick people in thinking they are communicating with dead people when
devils have them wrapped up in Satanism. Another such evil manifestation is
reincarnation. This is said to first come from the eastern religions who worship
many deities or fallen angels. If they came in flesh to dwell with their adherents
or for any reason, when the flesh grows old and dies, seeing that they are spirits
that live on until judgment, couldn’t they not come in the next generation as they
often do? So reincarnation is only an angel carrying on their fleshly existence.
When a human dies he goes straight to the grave unable to surface the earth (Lk

So, in the light of these four groups, when Paul said we wrestle against
“principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual
wickedness in high places," he was saying we wrestle against fallen angels; those
that dwell in the heavenlies and those that dwell on earth. "Howbeit then, when ye
knew not God, ye did service [slaves] unto them which by nature are no gods. But
now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again
to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Ye
observe days, and months, and times, and years" (Gal 4:8). "By nature are no
gods,” means they weren't legally initiated as gods; God didn't directly give them
this authority as "god of this world" (2Cor 4:4). They stole it by tricking Adam
to sin and through our ignorance want us to give them reverence. The pagan
Holidays (Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day, etc), which do glorifying these
fallen angels who are mystified as Greek gods; also preserved in things like the
horoscope (the stars), New Ageism and Neo-pagan culture. By celebrating these
holidays you are honoring gods who "are no gods" that shall perish; gods who are
the "work of error" and in due time God Almighty shall deal with them for
polluting humanity. Jeremiah 10:11 & 15 explains this: "thus shall ye say unto
them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall
perish from the earth, and from under these heavens...They are vanity, and the
work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish." The final
authoriy in all things is the Lord Jesus. When in doubt (Of sin.) get out of that
situation. As God already provided a way to escape, if you look for it. Many may
agree with this article and others not. My purpose is only to inform you to make
the wise choice. You alone can decide what to do. The name of the Lord is a strong
tower, and the righteous runs into it, and are safe and saved. May God bless us
