Exposed: The Devil’s Bag of Tricks.

You need a teacher! I can teach you the ways of the force!

Kylo Ren, Star Wars Sith Lord

Satan has his favorite subjects. He has his favorite students too. He has his false prophets and teachers lined up in the world to teach you lessons from his doctrine of demons, philosophy, music, psychology, and his media. He is called the prince of the power of the air and he has control of the airwaves and media in our world. He has networks of movies, TV shows, books and pornography to educate you with his creations and how he wants everyone to see the world. He invites you openly to participate in his worldly ways and learn secret initiations to hone your (his) crafts. All you have to do to agree is say yes, because no signature is needed. So many people do, including Christians.

Whether it is witchcraft through: yoga, tantra, zumba (dance worship), black magic, voodoo, Santeria, eastern mysticism, freemasonry, palmistry, hypnosis, tarot cards, fortune telling (sooth saying), psychology, Neural Linguistic Programming (NLP), horoscopes, Wicca, paganism, pantheism, humanism, animism, and many other ‘isms’. These must also include newer technology and natural based fantasy role playing games and the like, because it’s all his works, it is all created for men to bow down and worship him and it is all stolen worship from God.

Satan is a thief and a liar. He will yield his powers and his kingdoms to anyone who worships him, for a time, but it comes at the everlasting price of a soul and sometimes many, as you will be required to recruit and procure more and more people to participate in your new found skill and craft. His will is to have you become his evangelist to win over (condemn) souls of men and women until you find a way out of the mess, by receiving the gift of freedom from Jesus Christ. Some never get out and lose their souls.

Numb and Dumb

Satan only has to numb you and dumb you down to the truth enough so you are blinded to the dangers of participating in these works until you begin to idolize and worship yourself (as he does), which is why he fell in the first place. He tricks many into believing that this world and its machinations are all made up by man to control man. He has you question what the bible says until you become so confused that you no longer comprehend what God intended for you to understand, your purpose in life. Atheism, agnosticism and like philosophies are his domain and they trick people into thinking that there is no God and there is no devil. This, by the way, is humanism. That we are all alone and it’s all just a weird non-created thing instead a divine plan. Satan is quite clever at deceiving people into thinking he does not exist. He has been doing it since the beginning and he has been disguising himself in many ways, including masquerading as an angel of light to trick people who believe in God into following after many cults and false religions.

Any false religion ultimately is a deception of Satan, to try and keep people from the only way to Heaven, which is through faith in Jesus Christ.

One Bag, Many Tricks

There are so many tricks, so many deceiving spirits, so many seducing spirits at his disposal to make you think you are doing something harmless, when you are not. Some are indoctrinated through Ouija boards (necromancy). Some are tricked with fortune telling (sooth sayers) and divination via tarot cards or other card based activity, horoscopes, palmistry and the like. These seem like harmless activities to pass the time, but in the spiritual realm, you are making an agreement with devils to give you secrets, which is really information you likely already know, and thereby allowing evil spirits to remain in your life. Even in the case of a ouija board where you are to use the planchette to say goodbye to “close the portal” to spirits. In effect, when you use the board and believe in it, you have already opened the door to communicate to allow demons to continue supernaturally operating in your life, by default.

But what can start off as just harmless interest or just as fun can often lead to serious negative experiences for people.

Dr Richard Wiseman, University of Hertfordshire paranormal and occult research unit

Unless you read the bible and learn from some of the men and women that are currently doing God’s work in the world, and there are many, you can easily get lost into thinking that anything goes. I know, because at one point in my life, I too was tricked into following after these tricks. I thought that hypnosis, NLP and psychology, including dark psychology and subliminal studies, would be a harmless pursuit, but I was wrong. They are actually based on doctrines of demons. Only demons can carry out missions when you are engaged in these kinds of activities. They seduce you to make you feel you have power, like you have super skills and can control your life or the life of others through techniques. Most assuredly, you do not. You are actually using demonic forces at work in each person to manipulate behaviors. It is a form and use of intimidation, manipulation, and domination of your environment or the will of another, which is the essence of witchcraft.

It (psychology) is a form and use of intimidation, manipulation, and domination of your environment or the will of another, which is the essence of witchcraft.

Renounce Satan

When you work with divination spirits or spirits of any kind, you are in the devil’s grip. I had to renounce my activities with these forms of witchcraft. I had repent and pray for deliverance from familiar spirits that made these activities seem useful to me when they were, in reality, creating spiritual destructions in my life. I had to be forgiven and receive deliverance, of which Jesus Christ did with a baptism in the Holy Spirit and a renewal unlike I had ever felt in my life in the fall of 2018. God is good and He is faithful!

Are there any activities described or like the ones listed that can be used safely and still worship God, like yoga? No. In truth, you can be a witch or bride of Christ, but you cannot be both. The devil is like a lion that goes about seeking those to devour, and any sheep playing with his snares become a target of prey for him. God is also specific in His first law of having no other gods before Him and His second law, to not create an idol. He states emphatically throughout the bible that He is a jealous God and demands that we worship Him only. Why? Because He created us and we are to be bride of Christ! Would you want your future spouse sleeping around before you married them? No? Exactly! Remember, everything you see in this world was made possible because of Him. Nothing good you wish to see in this world is possible without Him.

Burn the Books

You can be a witch or a bride of Christ, but you cannot be both.

In Acts 19:19, all the people who came to Jesus burned their books and magic possessions. They turned to God and repented from the magical arts. While many would disagree, we are to do the same. There are many false teachers in the world who proclaim heresies as doctrine and who tell us that all things are made good because of Jesus. There are ministers of God who love magical things and have collections of witchcraft items, tokens, books, charms, and items that are not of God. Yes, even the Harry Potter books are to be listed as things a Holy Spirit-filled Christian should not possess, as it gives license, a legal right, for the devil to work in your household. And since many people cannot see or know that the spirits are with them, because their senses are dulled, they do not know how many of their blessings are stolen by the enemy because of sin.

I was challenged with this task too when I went all in for Christ. I deleted my entire music library and trashed countless books and movies. I now do whatever I can to make sure that my salvation and freedom is not compromised, because of a lust for worldly possessions of any kind, but especially of the magical kind. Many witches, ones that are knowingly against God, are educated to the bible and its laws. They use it to cast spells and curses, gain favors and more.

When you play in the devil’s toy box, he claims you as his child.

You Do Need A Teacher

When you truly accept that we are fallen man, then you will understand that indeed, you do need a teacher, much like the evil Sith character, Kylo Ren, says in the Star Wars series. Not in the sense that you need to depend on any one man or woman or put your trust in any one teacher to lead you to the truth, but to have a man of God who can guide and disciple you and keep you accountable to God’s ways.

Jesus is Lord and He was qualified to disciple His Apostles well enough for them to also go and make disciples. He started by educating them in the ways, not of the force, but of God. To be clear, there are many good men and women to learn from. We all must use prayer and discernment to find and follow God’s men and women in truth. Our leaders must be loyal to Him and not themselves, for they are the Shepherds we can grow and learn with in Christ. Always bearing in mind that they are never meant to replace our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

John 14:6

Jesus, The Way, The Truth, The Life

Jesus Christ is our true teacher and our way to salvation. He is our door and our path. He is all we need. It takes an unshakable belief in Him to manifest any powers of God in this world by His name. While some can help us on this path to understanding what God wants for our lives, we are to learn to listen and learn from His still small voice, because He is with us. Jesus is the one who leads us on a righteous path, without witchcraft, without false teachers speaking lies and without the curses from the ruler of this world.

Blessings and thank you for your time you have taken out of your day to read this. There will be similar posts on this topic in the near future, because it is part of my story, part of my journey and my testimony of my path to be in a close relationship with Christ. I pray it will help you and others find the truth to what Christ is saying in this hour.

Please, like, comment and share if you can. Your support is necessary for this work to continue. Glory to God!

In Christ,
Darrell B. Jones
