The World is divided into two categories of people. First: Believers who are indwelt by God for the reason that Jesus has been received and covers their sins.
“Christians are believers because they are indwelt by God because of Christ 1 Peter 1:23-25 — Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.” KJV
They are the people who realize their spiritual vulnerability and release their dependence upon Jesus. They show sorrow over sin, and are meek (balanced between extremes), hungry for God’s righteousness, merciful, pure in heart, peacemakers, ridiculed, persecuted, or slandered because of Christ. Jesus compares them to salt and light.
The other group consists of the unbelievers of this world. Many sects and cults have their members say a prayer that their soul touch all souls. This is one of the ways evil soul ties are formed. Christian must avoid fellowship with false religious sects and cults.
Some of these cults are: The Third Wave; The Word of Faith; The family of God; The Children of God, The Manifest Sons of God, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Christian Science, Rosicrucian’s, Theosophy, Unity, Mormonism, Unitarians, Bahai, Spiritualism, Scientology, Sweden organism, Christodelphiamism, Inner Peace Movement, Spiritualism, Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship, Association for Research and Development, Religious Research Foundations of America, Eckankar, Urantia, Moonies, Subud, Latihan, Islam, The Way, and other religions using the Bible but denying or omitting the Divinity of Christ, and/or the Atonement of His precious Blood, any group denying existence of heaven or hell.
A Christian believer must be aware that from every aspect of his life and activity, he/her can be threatened constantly with the prospect of witchcraft being beamed at him by the enemy. These attacks can come from unknown or unsuspecting sources. The snares of Satan are cleverly laid to trap the believer into a situation where Satan can have more control over his or her mind.
A good example of this is drugs, known as sorcery, and medications such as but not limited to: (even though they are prescribed by a doctor) Valium, Serex, Phenobarbital, and other common medications which are not curative. These can lead to mind control. Anesthetics in the hospital, blood transfusions, hypnosis, legal or illegal, smoking of tobacco, and smoking of marijuana are also mind altering. Consumption of alcoholic beverages, (including wine), participation in ESP, transcendental meditation, these can all lead to sharing and giving to the devil an edge in controlling the believer’s mind.
The Church was purchased with the precious blood of the Eternal Son of God, therefore, like Him is eternal. Jesus said, “upon this rock” (Petra, big rock of foundation) “I will build my church.” The Church is not built upon Peter, but it is built upon Jesus Christ. There is a divine person living in the church. Each member of the church is indwelt by the Spirit of God
The Christian has a unique relationship with Jesus. Jesus is shown as the Head of the church and the members are called His Body. He has given His believers a power of attorney to act against the power of Satan.
