聖靈的禮物,測試的精神,和屬靈的爭戰

第8章-聖靈的禮物,測試的精神,和屬靈的爭戰

我們得到屬靈的爭戰之前,我以為這將有助於聖靈的恩賜。 一旦你知道你是與一個惡魔或墮落天使處理,然後將適用精神作戰方法。 不過,我在我的經驗和研究發現,有時最難的一步是要確定,你其實有經驗或遇到一個惡魔或墮落天使。

希望在前面的章節惡魔和墮落天使的現代日常活動的總結會幫你的讀者輕易找出一些東西。 但惡魔和墮落天使是騙子,而且非常聰明的騙子。

在前面的章節中,我介紹了“敵基督”,“假教師”,“假先知”的概念。 我們被告知,“敵基督的精神,”現在的確存在。 不僅如此,但我們被告知,許多人都是騙子和敵基督。

“每次認耶穌基督是在肉體的精神是不是上帝:本[精神]是敵基督,為這事你們聽說他來了,它是目前世界上,現在若一4:3

“對於很多騙子進入世界,誰不承認耶穌基督是在肉體。 這是一個騙子和一個反基督者“。若1:7

小的孩子,這是最後一次:你們聽過敵基督應,即使是現在有許多敵基督;據此,我們知道這是最後一次 他們從我們中間出去,但他們並沒有真正屬於我們的。 ,如果他們有屬於我們,他們仍然與我們同在,但他們會表明,他們沒有屬於我們的 “若一2:18-19

“誰是騙子,但他認為denieth耶穌是基督嗎? 他是敵基督,denieth的父親和兒子。“若一2:22

就像有許多敵基督,也有許多敵基督的精神。 敵基督的這些欺騙性的精神是從字面上工作撒旦的惡魔和墮落天使。 因此,“反基督者的精神”是另一個長期妖或墮落天使的目標,因為這是反對耶穌基督。 基督徒如何得到假教師,假先知,或敵基督,如果他們最終妖或墮落天使敵基督精神。 的欺騙,這些嘗試基督徒工作之一,是偽裝成聖靈的恩賜,誰不明白聖靈的恩賜的基督徒。 所以重要的是了解聖靈的恩賜,這樣才能認識到什麼樣的事情的東西不被聖靈的恩賜。

聖靈中列出的“聖經”,特別在新約中有許多禮物。 這是從聖靈真正的禮物,給基督徒。 我想現在最重要的一點是,就像一個敵基督的精神(惡魔和墮落天使)做冒牌的“預言”聖靈的恩賜與“假預言”(墮落的天使或造成的恩賜,惡魔)... ...惡魔和墮落天使也嘗試假冒聖靈的其他禮品,在這樣或那樣的。

這是一個原因,“聖經”教導強調,
若一4:1-3“親愛的,不要相信每一位精神,但測試的精神 ,看他們是否從神;因為許多假先知了外面的世界。 通過這個,你知道上帝的精神:每承認,耶穌基督是成了肉身來的,是來自上帝的精神,和每一個精神不承認耶穌是不是從神,這就是敵基督的精神,其中聽說過,它是未來,現在它已經在世人面前。“

作為基督徒,聖經教導的責任,是放在我們,是我們測試的精神。 聖經教導我們,敵基督的精神不會坦白地說,耶穌基督在肉體,從上帝的精神會承認,耶穌基督是成了肉身來,或將拒絕父親和他的獨生子兒子。 我們也看到,

12:1-3 1肺心病“有關精神禮物,兄弟,我不希望你是無知的。 你知道,當你是異教徒,以某種方式或其他你的影響和帶壞靜音偶像。 因此,我告訴你,沒有一個人是由神的靈發言說,“耶穌被詛咒,”沒有人能說,“耶穌是主”,除了受聖靈。

從這個我們給出一個明顯的澄清,精神詛咒耶穌是不是從神來,沒有人可以說,“耶穌是主”,而是由聖靈。 一種精神詛咒耶穌似乎明顯,易於識別假冒,其中你就會知道這種精神並沒有你的這種精神測試。 了解精神已通過其他測試並不那麼容易和明顯。

它的重要性無異,當你與你明白什麼“耶穌基督是成了肉身來”是指一種精神,處理。 否則,你無法辨別,質疑精神,如果他們供認他如或不。 您必須知道耶穌基督是誰,而不是他是誰。 你必須知道,他是唯一的神的獨生子。 這些看似基本給你,但也有很多人有這種信任太心甘情願。 作為孩子們的歌說,“小心小心臟,你信任誰。”你必須警惕。 所有這些問題都是必不可少的基督教教義,它定義了聖經的基督教信仰。 因此,熟悉自己必不可少的聖經基​​督教教義,所以你就知道了真相,並可以更容易地發現任何謊言。 這裡是一個很好的起點:

另一個非常重要的事情要記住的是,耶穌是神“字”。 聖經是“上帝的話”。 耶穌說:

馬特5:17“不要想我來要廢掉律法和先知;我沒有來要廢掉,但履行。”

這是什麼意思? 這意味著,耶穌的聖靈,任何真正的精神和神(如聖潔的天使)永遠不會教,或說,或試圖讓你教,做什麼或說什麼,是違背“聖經”。

聖經神所默示的,[]有利可圖的學說,責備,改正,在義指令:神的人得以完全,徹底佈置你們所有的優秀作品 2添3。 16-17

人們說,“最好的防守就是進攻”。 事情是絕對的“測試”的精神,告訴他們的上帝或撒旦的寶貴,是知道“聖經”的教導。 要知道,整本聖經,你需要閱讀整本聖經。 一旦你已經讀過“聖經”的東西,聖靈會幫助你留住並記住它。

希伯來書10:14-17“一個提供他已經完善了所有那些成聖。 和聖靈也見證了我們後說,“這是該公約的那些日子以後,我將與他們的,是耶和華說的:在他們心裡,我會把我的律法,並在他們的心中,我會寫“他接著說,”他們的罪孽,他們的不法事蹟,我不再記念。

若14時26分“,但輔導員,他們的父親將在我的名義發送,聖靈,將教你所有的事情,並會提醒你的一切我已經對你說。

聖靈會提醒我們什麼是“聖經”教導,並教給我們所有的東西。 上帝會把你的心臟,他的法律,並寫上你的頭腦他的法律。 它只是讓這麼多對我們來說更容易,如果我們實際讀“聖經”。 現在是時候用得其所。 您不需要實際背誦“聖經”(儘管這是一件好事)學習和提醒您已閱讀,耶穌告訴我們,聖靈會提醒我們,他說的所有的聖靈。 讀“聖經”,尤其是整本聖經,在“測試的精神”是寶貴的。

在其他情況下,其中的精神不能受到質疑,但而不是一個夢想,或一個設想,正在發生的事情:如果可能的話,而正在進行中,在主耶穌基督的名稱和權威的譴責。 ,“ 主耶穌基督責備你。”此外,花一分鐘,並開始在耶穌基督的名祈求上帝會刪除任何虛假視力或從你的夢想。 如果從神來的願景或夢想,等,將繼續,但如果它是不是從神來的,那麼它會停止。 這是上帝在他的話語中,我們需要測試的精神,我相​​信我們這樣做時,上帝很高興,它是更安全的為我們留在打擊欺騙守衛。 神不會介意,如果你花時間做什麼,他已經告訴你這樣做 - 測試的精神!

現在我們已經介紹了一些基本測試的精神,我想進入聖靈的禮物,還包括一些偽造的假禮物從敵基督的(惡魔和墮落天使)精神。

什麼是聖靈的恩賜? 一些關鍵的經文告訴我們,它們是什麼,以及一些關於他們喜歡什麼,為什麼給他們:

羅12:6-8 說:“我們有不同的禮物,給我們的恩典 如果一個人的禮物是預言,讓他用他的信仰比例。 如果是服務,讓他擔任;如果它是教學中,讓他教;如果這是令人鼓舞的的,讓他鼓勵,如果是他人的需要作出貢獻,讓他慷慨地給予,如果是領導,讓他執政努力;如果是表現出的憐憫,讓他去做樂呵呵地“

4:11-16“,他給了一些使徒,一些作為先知,和一些為傳福音,並裝備服務工作聖人一些牧師和教師,建立身體基督,直到我們都達到統一的信念,神的兒子的知識,一個成熟的男人,屬於基督的豐滿身材的措施。 因此,我們不再是兒童,扔在這裡和那裡的海浪,並進行各種學說之風,掛羊頭賣狗肉的男性,在騙人的心計狡猾,但講愛真理,我們各方面成長起來的他,誰是頭,即使是基督,從人的整個身體,正裝和舉行該每一個關節用品,根據每一個人的部分的正常工作,導致身體的成長自身建設,在愛。

1哥林多前書12:4-12“有各種不同的禮物,但本著同樣的精神。 有不同種類的服務,但相同的主 有各種不同的工作,但神一樣的作品,他們在所有的人。 現在每一個精神的體現,是為了共同的利益。 一個通過精神智慧的消息,另一個消息知識本著同樣的精神,本著同樣的精神,以另一種信仰,治愈的另一個禮物,一個精神,另一種神奇的力量另一個預言,另一個顯著的精神之間,另一個在各種不同的方言發言,還有方言的解釋。 所有這些都是一個工作,並本著同樣的精神,他給他們每一個,就像他的決定 身體是一個單位,雖然它是由許多地方,雖然它的所有部件很多,他們形成一體。 因此,它是與基督。“

1肺心病12:28-13:3“在教會神已委任第一所有使徒,第二先知,第三個教師,然後奇蹟的工人,還有那些有癒合的禮物,那些能夠幫助他人,那些禮物管理,和那些在各種不同的方言的發言 所有的使徒嗎 所有的先知嗎 都是教師嗎 所有創造奇蹟嗎 是不是所有有癒合的禮物呢? 所有說方言? 是否所有的解釋? 但急切渴望更大的禮物。 現在,我將向您展示最優秀的方式 如果我發言的男性和天使的方言,但沒有愛,我只是一個響亮的鑼或鏗鏘的鈸。 如果我有預言的恩賜,可以捉摸的所有奧秘和所有的知識,如果我有信心可以移山,但沒有愛,我什麼。 如果我給所有我擁有的窮人和投降我的身體的火焰,但沒有愛,我一無所獲。“

林前14:1-6“愛的路上,並熱切渴望屬靈的恩賜,特別是預言的恩賜。 對於任何人在舌頭說話,不說話的人,但上帝 事實上,沒有人理解他,他說出他的精神奧秘。 但大家誰預言加強,鼓勵和安慰的男人說話 他談到舌edifies自己,但他誰的預言edifies教會。 我想,你們每一個人說方言,但我寧願你預言。 他的預言是大於一個人講方言的,除非他解釋,使教會的熏陶。 現在,兄弟,如果我到你們這裡來,說方言,有什麼好我是你,除非我給你帶來一些啟示,或知識或預言或指令字嗎?

林前14:12-33“所以它是與你。 既然你都渴望有屬靈的恩賜,嘗試到Excel建立教會的禮物 出於這個原因,任何人在舌頭說話應該祈禱,他說什麼,他可能會解釋。 如果我在舌頭祈禱,我的精神祈禱,但我的心是徒勞的 所以,我應該怎麼辦? 我會與我的靈魂祈禱,但我也會祈禱,我的腦海,我會唱我的精神,但我也會唱我的腦海。 如果你讚美神,你的精神,如何能發現在那些不明白自己說“阿們”你的感恩節,因為他不知道你在說什麼 你可能會感謝不夠好,但其他人是不是熏陶。 我感謝上帝,我的舌頭比大家多講。 但在教會,我寧願講五個理解的話,指示他人萬多字的舌頭 兄弟,停止思維像孩子一樣。 關於邪惡是嬰兒,但在你的思維是成年人。 在法律上寫的是:“通過奇怪的方言的男子,並通過外國人,我會說這個人,但即使如此,他們不會聽我的嘴唇,”耶和華說的。 然後,舌頭,是一個標誌,不信教,但對不信的預言,然而,對信徒,非信徒沒有 因此,如果整個教堂走到一起,大家都講方言,和一些不明白的人或一些不信的來,他們不說你是你的心靈? 但是,如果不信的人不明白,大家是預言,他將被說服所有,他是一個罪人,將所有的判斷,和他的心臟的秘密被戳穿。 於是,他會掉下來敬拜神,感嘆,“上帝是真的在你們中間!”那麼,我們應該說,兄弟? 當你走到一起,每個人都有一首讚美詩,或指令字,一個啟示,舌頭或解釋。 所有這些都必須做到加強教會。 如果有人說話,舌頭在兩個或三要發言,一次一個,並必須有人解釋。 如果沒有翻譯,揚聲器應保持安靜,在教會和對自己和上帝說話 兩個或三個先知說話,別人說什麼應該仔細掂量。 一個啟示,如果有人坐下來,第一位發言者應立即停止。 你可以在打開的所有的預言,使每個人都可能被指示和鼓勵。 先知的精神受到控制先知。 因為上帝是不是一個障礙,但和平之神,在所有的聖人眾。

哥林多前書7:7-8“但我希望所有的人都甚至我本人。 然而,每個人在自己從上帝的禮物,以這種方式之一,而另一個。 但是我要說的未婚和寡婦,這是對他們有好處,如果,他們甚至一保持“獨身的禮品“

3:6-8“是具體的,外邦人同胞繼承人和身體的其他成員,並在基督耶穌裡,藉著福音的承諾,我是一個部長研究員有分,根據的禮物神的恩典,這是給我,根據他的權力的工作。 對我來說,至少所有聖人,此寬限期,向外邦人傳教基督深不可測的財富“(使徒/傳道)


這裡有一個列表聖靈的恩賜,為了(或盡可能靠近我可以圖):

之間的精神使徒,預言,教學,牧區,傳福音,創造奇蹟,癒合,信仰,區分或辨別諸靈,智慧,知識消息,信息服務,鼓勵 /規勸,幫助他人的需要,或給,表現出的憐憫,領導或理事,獨身,方言的解釋,說在各種不同的方言。

似乎有19聖靈的禮物。 有些人有一個以上的禮物,但每一個基督徒至少有一個禮物。 聖靈選擇什麼禮物給一個基督徒,人本身沒有得到選擇自己的禮物。 當然,人們可以問一個特別的禮物,但有時他們不會給予的禮物。 重要的是要記住的是,每個禮物是重要的,需要和特殊,是來自上帝的禮物和祝福。 你可以學到很多在關於它們的更多的在線視頻和這裡的學習指導 http://www.guymalone.com/holyspiritbaptismspeakingintongues.htm

聖靈的恩賜是用來建立和幫助教會內外,並在其成長,並完成傳播耶穌基督福音的大使命。 舌頭是自我熏陶中提到的唯一禮物(也除非有解釋),但一般聖靈的恩賜是基督教教會基督的身體的熏陶,或對非基督教福音的含義。

但他曾對眾人prophesieth speaketh []的熏陶,並告誡,性和舒適性。 他說,speaketh [未知]舌edifieth自己,但他認為prophesieth edifieth教會。 現在,弟兄們,如果我告訴你與方言,什麼我的利潤你,除了我會跟你說話的啟示,或知識,或預言,或學說?1肺心病14:3-4,6

不僅僅是預言,而且智慧或知識的話,穩健主義的教學禮物,都有助於陶冶或精神上的利潤教會。 這是另一個重要規則的拇指區分使用的東西,如果是從聖靈的恩賜。

在區分聖靈的真正的禮物和敵基督的精神(惡魔和墮落天使)的假禮物,有幾件事情要記住。 有一件事是一個超自然的“禮物”,這是除了基督教教堂,除了耶穌基督,並帶來其他人或除了耶穌基督和父神的榮耀,是一個被認為是虛假饋贈的禮物。 一個禮物之一罪,魔術,崇拜天使,隱匿,邪教,巫術,占卜的做法,是不是聖靈的恩賜。

在此我想指出,基督的身體是設計功能一起作為一個整體,我們確實需要對方。 我們都需要教師,我們都需要discerners的精神,和使徒,並度外,和方言的揚聲器,這些發言者和口譯,真正大家都需要對方。

例如,一件禮物是預言。 有很多的預言包括不同意見。 有些東西包括的現在,過去或未來的願景和夢想,。 有人說禮物的預言在新約比舊約的禮物是不同的。 有人說,真正的預言今天不包括悔改的消息,否則會有破壞(如喬納)。 也看到徒11:27-29先知警告飢荒發生前,再有就是啟示錄。 有人說預言今天是經常被用來定罪觸摸神奇的知識與他們對自己,或者明知對他們說什麼,讓他們感受到信念,導致悔改他們的罪的人。 因此眾說紛紜。 但除了有關預言的早期經文,我們也看到:

2:17-18“”並應在最後的日子,“上帝說,”我要將我的靈提出呼籲所有人類;你兒子和你的女兒方預言,少年人要見異象,您老無所異夢,甚至在我BONDSLAVES,無論男女,我在那些日子裡滔滔不絕我的靈,他們應預言“。

12:6“他說,”現在聽到我的話:如果你們中間有一個先知,我,主,應在自己已知他的遠見 我會談談與他的一個夢想。“

阿摩司書3:7“當然,主權耶和華並沒有透露他的計劃,他的僕人眾先知沒有。”

它教導聖經“預言”字,在“聖經”中使​​用的,必須定義。 我們不能正好彌補了我們的這個詞的“預言”的基礎上,我們希望它是自己的定義。 它不包括夢和異象,引起聖潔的天使。 預言可以過去,現在,還是將來。 這是一個從神得到消息的問題,我個人不會限制它的外觀當它發生。 但消息的內容,“聖經”相比,必須檢查在測試的精神,告訴如果預言是從神或不。

有其他預言的聖經標準:

申命記18:20-22“但先知發言在我的名字,我沒有吩咐他說話,或在其他神的名字,他發言的一個詞,擅自,先知死的。“ “你可以說你的心,”我們應如何知道耶和華沒有口語?“ “當一個先知耶和華的名說話,如果事情不出現或成真,這是耶和華沒有發言的事情 先知說的,振振有詞;你不得不怕他“。

申命記13:1-5:“如果一個先知或夢想家的夢想出現在你們中間,給你一個符號或一個奇蹟,並簽署或難怪成真,關於他對你說話,說,”讓我們去後其他的神(你有不知道的人),讓我們為他們服務,“你不聽的話,先知或夢的夢想家;耶和華你們的神是測試你找出如果你愛耶和華你的神與所有您的心臟和你的靈魂 “您應當遵循耶和華你的神和恐懼他,你會遵守他的誡命,聽他的聲音,服侍他,抱住他。 “但是,先知或夢的夢想家應置於死地,耶和華你們的神誰把你從埃及的土地上,因為他已經勸阻叛亂和從奴隸制的房子贖回你,勾引你的方式耶和華你的神吩咐你走。 所以,你應清除惡從你們中間。“

3:19-20 1薩姆“因此塞繆爾增長和耶和華與他同在,讓他的話沒有失敗。 和所有以色列從丹甚至到貝爾謝巴知道,塞繆爾被確認為耶和華的先知。

消息從一個真正的先知未來的事情,與預言的真正的禮物,會通過先知的預言。 一個真正的先知的預言的真正的禮物的話,會不會失敗。 一個預言的真正的禮物是​​上帝的真先知不會鼓勵其他神靈的崇拜或服務期。

我們了解到,即使是假先知可能有一個標誌或難怪成真,但先知將已知的事實,他鼓勵其他神,而不是主神或耶穌基督的崇拜或服務的虛假。 事實上,有些人錯過,“聖經”教導這一點,只有資格先知的消息成真... ...但有時可以給惡魔和墮落天使(儘管有限)有關未來的信息,提供虛假的預言。 雖然很多次了一個關於未來的假先知的信息將只有部分通過,或含糊。 從神的消息來通過上帝說,上帝給每一個細節,而且,如果有一個悔改條件,那將履行一貫也,正如神在賀電中說。

假預言,有時也採取折磨形式,推到一個人做的事情,違反十誡,或在聖經中給定的其他方向,這是一種方法來確定假預言,它把一個人違反明確聖經規律是什麼罪。 上帝是一致的,他不會要求或推他的人的罪。

聖靈的確認,在這件禮物也是非常重要的。 如此看來,“聖經”教導說預言的恩賜是最好辨別的禮物,可以作為一個第二證人證實。

1肺心病14時29分“,讓兩個或三個先知說話,讓其他人作出判決。”

這個詞在這裡的“判斷”在希臘語中是“diakrino”(1252),辨別,單獨的,做一個區別,嘗試,或決定。 這是同根詞“diakrisis”(1253),這是用來“辨別諸靈”的禮物 1哥林多前書 12:10。 因此,我們實際上是在告訴記者,在“聖經”後,有人預言,別人是辨別有關的預言。

因此,我們作為基督徒,必須測試的精神。 我們知道“聖經”,“聖經”說,有關測試的精神,我們更祈禱法眼,更接近我們繪製的主耶穌,我們將在測試的精神。

因此,如果一個人的互動或妖或墮落天使的攻擊,也有精神的作戰方法,這將有助於。 ,第一步是確定你妖或墮落天使時,他們採取任何方式或形式。

被稱為“屬靈爭戰”等,因為我們真正的是一種精神戰爭中的所有。

REV 12:12,17“出於這個原因,飄柔,天哪,你在他們住的人 地球和海洋,因為魔鬼來給你,有很大的憤怒,知道,他只有很短的時間。“因此,龍被激怒的女人,去休息戰爭她的孩子,保持神的誡命並持有耶穌的見證。“

在過去 2000年,戰爭已經積極發動地球上的撒旦和墮落的天使和“撒旦惡魔之間,對耶穌和基督徒。 基督徒是那些“守神的誡命,並持有耶穌的見證”。 使徒和早期的基督徒都明白,這是形勢,談到了無數次的情況,和給屬靈爭戰的指令,以及如何最好地處理作為基督徒的情況。

墮落的天使,也稱為“光榮的”彼得在這下面這段話(只是所謂的“天使”的神聖天使區別),其中我們看到,很多人沒有(仍然不)了解目前的情況:

2寵物2:10-12“他尤其是對那些按照自己的邪惡,淫蕩的慾望,誰鄙視管理局的硬盤。 這些人都感到驕傲和傲慢,甚至敢於在光榮的嘲笑沒有這麼多為顫抖 但天使,即使他們在權力和力量遠遠大於這些假教師,從來沒有說出來的對光榮的不尊重。 這些假教師一樣沒頭沒腦的動物,生物的本能,誰是天生要抓住並殺害。 他們嘲笑他們知道這麼一點可怕的權力的,他們將被銷毀與他們相處。

“光榮的”墮落天使是在裘德證實:

裘德1:8-10“然而,這些假教師,那些聲稱權威從他們的夢想,過著不道德的生活,藐視權威,並在光榮的權力嗤之以鼻。 但即使是邁克爾,一個最強大的天使,也不敢帶來了對撒旦褻瀆神靈的指控,而只是說,“主責備你。”(這發生時,邁克爾與撒旦爭論摩西的屍體。)但這些人褻瀆的事情,他們不明白。 喜歡動物,他們不管自己的直覺告訴他們,和他們對自己的毀滅帶來。“

在這裡,我們看到,“光榮的”直接比較撒旦,墮落天使和墮落天使的領袖。

我們告誡說,作為基督徒,不能像那些將被銷毀。 我們是在“恐怖的權力”,“光榮的”墮落的天使不笑。 我們不是說出來的不尊重反對他們。 關鍵的詞是“不尊重”。 但到處是黑暗中我們要揭露它具有質輕,往往需要講出來的行動。

據指出,我們不應該“在光榮的權力嗤之以鼻”。 我們也不要“褻瀆的事情,我們不明白”,這可以適用於一般。

什麼是褻瀆? 這裡的一些希望有用的定義:從字典,從 GK“的假設到自己的權利或上帝的素質的罪行”。 blasphemia“褻瀆,講話,誹謗,”從 blasphemein,“發言邪惡的。”第二個元素是pheme“話語”。 它是“說出猥褻或褻瀆”,“說話的一種揶揄或不虔誠地”,從塞耶我們得到的,“講邪惡,誹謗,責備,欄杆,自虐”。
但可能最有用的定義是“犯罪”的假設,以自己的權利或上帝的素質。 我也想指出一些保羅說:

加拉太1:8“但即使我們,是從天上來的使者,宣講福音相反我們傳福音給你,讓他被詛咒的!”

有一件事要注意的是,邁克爾認為這是主的地方斥責撒旦,而不是他的地方。 保羅說,“讓他就應當被咒詛”,但沒有說,“我詛咒他”。 邁克爾,一個強大的阿爾漢格爾斯克說:“主責備你。”不“,我就責備你。”這是我們樹立了榜樣。 我們能夠投出的福音描述耶穌的名字,惡魔,。 這是類似的,和我這裡的要點是來,現實主義和謙遜,實現我們是無能為力除了耶穌和上帝的保護我們,和我們自己的弱比這些墮落天使的地球上,和我們應該是擔心這些事實,以及相應的行為和發言。

我們的權力和權威來自耶穌基督,從父神和耶穌的聖靈,而不是從我做起。 We see above when dealing with fallen angels (Satan in this example) that even the Holy archangel Michael (a powerful angel) did not say, “I rebuke you” but rather said “The Lord rebuke you.” Michael realistically understood that the Lord God is the one with the power, and the Lord, Jesus the Christ is also referenced here, and Michael called on the Lord, requested and asked that the Lord rebuke the fallen angel. Michael understood it was not his place or “right” to rebuke Satan, but rather that it was God's place and “right” to rebuke Satan. Looking at the definition of blaspheme above, this makes a lot of sense. It is something Christians may easily slightly do in their choice of wording, in ignorance, but it is blasphemous as a Christian to assume you have the right and place to rebuke fallen angels yourself apart from being under the given authority of Lord Jesus the Christ and the Lord God the Father. So like Michael, we should say “The Lord Jesus Christ Rebuke You.” (Especially in the case of fallen angels.)

We are to follow this principle, that the authority and power belongs to and is given by Jesus Christ, whether it comes to demons or fallen angels. As this passage illustrates the principle, there is a wrong way to do this:

Acts 19:11-16 “God was performing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul, so that handkerchiefs or aprons were even carried from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out. But also some of the Jewish exorcists, who went from place to place, attempted to name over those who had the evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, “I adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preaches.” Seven sons of one Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this. And the evil spirit answered and said to them, “I recognize Jesus, and I know about Paul, but who are you?” And the man, in whom was the evil spirit, leaped on them and subdued all of them and overpowered them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.”

We are not to have a spirit of fear, but at the same time we need to be apprehensive of who really has power over fallen angels and demons: it is not us, but the Lord Jesus Christ, and us only through Him. Jesus has given us authority as his disciples, but we need to use it correctly, as given authority, in His name, and as the Bible has instructed us to do.

Luke 10:17-20 “And the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.” And He said to them, “I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning. “Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall injure you. “Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.”

As such, when it comes to dealing with the enemy spirits of Satan in this spiritual war that is waging all around us, I think it best to follow Jesus' example and Biblical instructions.

But we need to keep in mind that when Jesus rebuked demons and Satan, that Jesus was the Son of God. All of our power over the enemy comes through Jesus. While Jesus said, “Come out of that person”, we are doing so under the authority Jesus has given us, and under His authority, and under the name of Jesus. We have authority over the enemy when we are under the Lord Jesus, under His blood, name, and authority, and what part we can do we do successfully only under the authority and in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

There are many examples of Jesus casting out demons throughout the gospels. Jesus also told his followers to cast out demons. This point is also shown in Mark 9:16-29:

“And He asked them, “What are you discussing with them?” And one of the crowd answered Him, “Teacher, I brought You my son, possessed with a spirit which makes him mute; and whenever it seizes him, it dashes him to the ground and he foams at the mouth, and grinds his teeth, and stiffens out. And I told Your disciples to cast it out, and they could not do it.” And He answered them and said, “O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him to Me!” And they brought the boy to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into a convulsion, and falling to the ground, he began rolling about and foaming at the mouth. And He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” And he said, “From childhood. “And it has often thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us!” And Jesus said to him, “'If You can!' All things are possible to him who believes.” Immediately the boy's father cried out and began saying, “I do believe; help my unbelief.” And when Jesus saw that a crowd was rapidly gathering, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and do not enter him again.” And after crying out and throwing him into terrible convulsions, it came out; and the boy became so much like a corpse that most of them said, “He is dead!” But Jesus took him by the hand and raised him; and he got up. And when He had come into the house, His disciples began questioning Him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?” And He said to them, “This kind cannot come out by anything but prayer.”

What this shows us is that some evil spirits can only come out with prayer. (This is also something to keep in mind as applicable for some “self-deliverance situations”.) In other words, we must ask the Lord God and the Lord Jesus to make the evil spirit come out, and not enter in again. By saying “The Lord Jesus Christ rebuke you” a person can pray to the Lord Jesus as they say it, pray out loud, and be asking Jesus to make the evil spirit come out and stay out, as they address the evil spirit in Jesus' name. Though some deliverances require much prayer beforehand and during the deliverance than that. Calling out to Jesus, “Jesus!” also is prayer to Jesus.

We read how the apostle Paul would cast out a demon; the correct way to do this is seen in Paul's choice of words:

Acts 16:18 “And she continued doing this for many days. But Paul was greatly annoyed, and turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her!” And it came out at that very moment.”

Where Jesus said to demons, “I command you to come out”, we must recognize we are under Jesus' authority and say “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out.” Where Jesus rebuked a fallen angel, we would say “The Lord Jesus Christ rebuke you.”

Speaking of addressing demons, I find it important to note that Jesus himself did not have much dialog with demons that he was casting out of people. Jesus asked demons their name.

Mark 5:9 “And He was asking him, “What is your name?” And he said to Him, “My name is Legion; for we are many.”

Jesus told demons to be quiet.

Mark 1:25 “And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!”

最重要的是耶穌告訴惡魔出來。 與保羅如上所述,早期教會緊隨其後,耶穌設置的例子。 耶穌說,

Mark 16:17-18 “And these signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it shall not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

I think there is something noteworthy here, in that we are to cast out demons in Jesus name, but that does not mean we should have lengthy conversations with them or listen to them or take heed of things they say. They are deceivers and liars, and cannot be trusted in anything they say.

When it comes to fallen angels in specific, we are told that Jesus resisted Satan with scripture, and told him to be gone, rebuking him. (Though demons are applicable also.)

Matt 4:1-11 “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry. And the tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.” But He answered and said, “It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'” Then the devil took Him into the holy city; and he had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God throw Yourself down; for it is written, 'HE WILL GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE CONCERNING YOU'; and 'ON their HANDS THEY WILL BEAR YOU UP, LEST YOU STRIKE YOUR FOOT AGAINST A STONE.'” Jesus said to him, “On the other hand, it is written, 'YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.'” Again, the devil took^ Him to a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory; and he said to Him, “All these things will I give You, if You fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, 'YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND SERVE HIM ONLY.'” Then the devil left^ Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him.”

We are told in James 4:7 “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” This applies not only to “the” devil, Satan, but also to the other fallen angels. In Luke 10 Jesus said he has given to his disciples “ authority… over all the power of the enemy” , and this includes demons and fallen angels.

Indeed, we are in a spiritual war, and these are the basic things Christians need to know about spiritual warfare. We in this battle we are told to put on the full armor of God.

Eph 6:10-20 “Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one. And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”

But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. 1 Thes 5:8

Our spiritual armor includes our loins girded with truth, which is like binding or tying up loose clothes (like a robe) to yourself so you can move with more agility. Don't have loose pieces that hinder you and could trip you up, but hold the truth tight to yourself.

Also, feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace, ready to preach the Gospel of peace, wherever we go, and moving forward with this goal in mind. And we are to be carrying the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God, the Bible. Just like a real sword, we need to be familiar with our Bible, and practiced in using it. The breastplate of righteousness is actually made out of faith and love. The shield of faith is possibly made of the same material as the breastplate, not just of faith, but also of love. At least it seems them being from the same material would make sense, in a literal analogy.

Why would love and faith be part of a protective breastplate, called the breastplate of righteousness? First off, because we are counted as righteous by faith, and not by works:

But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness. Rom 4:5

Second, because the 2 Commandments Jesus gave us, are all about us Loving God and everyone else, and so practicing Love is true righteousness:

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment. And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Mark 12:29-31

Therefore Love is a very essential and important part of spiritual armor, even the very material out of which the breastplate is made, and perhaps the shield also. And then there is also the Helmet of Salvation, and more insight is given here:

Remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thes 1:3

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began… Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 1:2,3:6-7

Faith, Hope, and Love are pictured together here. Faith and Love are both described in practice, through work and labor. But Hope is described in practice through endurance or faithfulness, in hope in Jesus Christ and eternal salvation in Him. It seems likely that the Helmet of salvation is made in particular out of the Hope of eternal salvation in Jesus Christ. In this it is clear that having Hope of salvation is important, and the endurance to continue in hope. So the helmet of salvation seems to indicate keeping an eternal perspective, fixed on the hope of eternal life in Jesus Christ. And it is also important in spiritual warfare, in battle, to strengthen Hope by protecting and surrounding it with Love, so it is impenetrable to fear, as “perfect love cast out fear” (1 Jn 4:18).

Keeping all this in mind, research into spiritual attacks on people has shown that there are 3 main causes for spiritual attacks. This summary of these findings is from CE4Research.com, of the CE4 Research Group, Christians who have worked with hundreds of cases of “alien abduction” experiences, and found that they stop in the name and authority of Jesus Christ.

“1。 You asked for it. Some people actually ask to have the experience to know what is like or about. Be careful what you ask for.

2。 You unknowingly open a door to the realm of this experience. Some people unknowingly opened a door for the experience, by being involved in New Age or Occult activities. When you engage in the unknown things outside of GOD the Creator and His WORD you make yourself vulnerable to these entities. We have found this reason to be the most often found root cause.

3。 You are part of a generational cycle or generational curse. When asked about the experiencer's parents or early family life, we found that the opening had come from one or more of the parents. It IS important how you raise your children. When there is a GODLY covering over the family by the head of the household, the family is protected. But if there is No GODLY covering, the family is open to these types of unnatural experiences.”

If there are spiritual attacks ongoing, then the solution is to deal with the 3 potential causes above. There can be more than one reason. Any of these can open a door to allow evil spiritual entities into a person's life, and give them spiritual legal authority grounds to harass or attack a person. But the solution for all 3 is prayerful repentance to God, whether for your sins and involvement, or for the sins or involvement of your ancestors. A person has to get whatever sin or occult involvement or false beliefs out of their life completely, and replace these things with the things of God. This also builds up the spiritual armor of God. In this a person is drawing near to God, and resisting the devil, so he will flee. And spiritual attacks can be stopped, not only once but as a life pattern, by drawing near to God and resisting/rebuking these entities in the name and authority of Jesus Christ.

The Bible teaches spiritual warfare, which is meant for all Christians. We do not have to go anywhere to be on the front lines, and we do not need to provoke to start the violence of this war, for Satan has gone off to make war against us. The violence is all around us, and we are on the front lines in one way or form or another. This war is raging on around us, and against each of us, all the time. We were born into a spiritual warzone. And our effectiveness as Christians in reaching the lost, as the church, is in many ways dependent on our effectiveness in becoming spiritual warriors whom practice Biblical spiritual warfare under our Savior and King, Jesus Christ.
