The Dark Satanic Powers that Deceive and Control…..


Occult - New Age and Paganism 4

Today I want to share with you about The Occult, New Age and Pagan Religions, all are very Dangerous and lead to deception and mind control, please feel free to share your own experiences of any of these tools of Satan, we are all called to warn of danger.  After these we will look at Atheists, False Teachers or Wolves in the Church, Cults and Childish and Deceived Christians, also very detrimental to our Maturity in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 5: 8 -11 For you were once darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord. Live as children of Light for  the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness, righteousness and Truth and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

First I would like to share with you the very real danger of the Occult, it has a deadly focus and outcome, it’s  Satan’s playground the same as New Age teaching and Paganism, their message is evil and Christians participation in them is in direct disobedience to God, which is very dangerous because we will reap what we sow until we come to our senses and repent.

Deuteronomy 18:10-11 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an Enchanter, or a Witch. Or a Charmer, or a Consulter with familiar spirits, or a Wizard, or a Necromancer.(KJV)

BEWICHED 1As a young person I innocently became involved in the Occult , it started with a T.V show called Bewitched, it seemed harmless but dangerous seeds were planted, I longed to be like Samantha the Star of this show, a good white Witch, or Wiccan (see below) but they are evil and so sadly in the end my life became a nightmare of delusion and fear, I could not find the power that was promised to be like Samantha although I did search for it which led to very harmful beliefs and practices but thankfully I didn’t become involved with a Coven and Satan worship which is where it could have led and these are the deep things of Satan and even murder is practiced in their sacrifices to him.

Wicca Spells Pagan Witchcraft 2Wicca the polytheistic nature religion of modern Witchcraft whose central deity is a Mother goddess; origins are in Pagan religions.

Later I became  involved with Tara card readings, Occult Numerology, and Astrology Charts focusing on the daily Stars but the lies that they projected weighed heavy on me and I was very troubled and had no peace even having nightmares until I repented and rejected the Occult and all that it involved but this was later in my life.

8675I went to a Clairvoyant in my early twenties and her predictions at first were pleasant but than she told me I would die on my second trip overseas and other disturbing premonitions and so the seeds were planted.

We need to remember only God knows the future and those He reveals it to  but they will be His anointed not Satan’s followers and yes Satan does know the past and the present, so  those who predict the future which will be based on lies, with them being motivated and in his empowering, will be very convincing in what they predict having shared past and present events.

Leviticus 19:31- “‘Do not turn to Mediums or seek out Spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God. (NIV)

When I went on the second trip overseas which I didn’t do until I was in my Thirties  the Plane hit turbulence and the seeds that had been planted bore bad fruit  and I panicked but I can assure you I didn’t die although it was a very fearful experience.

In New Age religious practices they separate Jesus from what they term “the Christ.” there are some differences, but they agree that the Christ is divine, but is often regarded as a cosmic, impersonal entity. They allege that this Christ-force or principle took over the body of the man Jesus with a view to helping humanity evolve spiritually. This same Christ is said to lie dormant within each person, waiting to be fully realized so that humanity as a whole may experience spiritual enlightenment, so be careful when sharing with them, you may be deceived and think they are Christians.

Pagan ReligionsOne of the major things they all focus on  is Meditation and Yoga, seeking spiritual guides and claiming they will  bring peace and serenity. I know one Christian woman who was curious and so went to one of the Yoga classes only to find she became involved, it lead her eventually into deep sin and destroyed her Christian witness. Be warned Yoga exercises originated in Pagan worship to their gods, to participate in them is Spiritual Adultery which will give Satan a foothold in your life. 

But also as a warning too we need to keep things in balance, not focusing on evil in extreme so it occupies our thoughts causing us fear.   I came in contact with a Christian Ministry years ago who went to extremes in their teaching , even banning Candles, Crosses and other harmless objects because they are used by those involved in the Occult, New age and Paganism,  this also included black Cats,  Butterflies and Ravens which are part of their symbolism but they were created by God and are not to be rejected just because they are used for evil.

This is the same with our Christmas symbols, it is what we  use them for that matters and how we view them in our heart, everything God created is very good, even though man may pollute them but God  does prohibit Tattoos and Body Piercing all types and this is not just under the law but is so we do not identify with New age and Paganism physically as well as spiritually  and this warning is for every generation of Mankind and with us being  in the end times now, is a warning about the mark of the Beast too.

Leviticus 19:28  Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.

Deuteronomy 14 :1 Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.

God tells us that we will be greatly blessed if we obey His guidelines, they are for our good and we will want to obey Him if we Love Him and He tells us not to have anything to do with the deeds of the darkness which is sin and gives Satan a foothold in our lives but we can be assured he won’t win, Jesus always has the Victory.

Jesus Wins 2

Thank you for sharing with me about the dangers of the Occult, New Age and Paganism, may you be greatly blessed in your walk with The Lord and not encounter any of these tools of Satan but if you do, walk away with confidence they can’t hurt us unless we welcome them into our lives, so instead we don’t focus on them but on what God tells us to do  below.

Philippians 4: 8- 9  Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

    May I use the images from this post please?

    I posted verses from Deuteronomy 17 and 18 and these images are perfect for those verses.

    All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ.


  3. I’d like to share what happened to me. Before I became a Christian, a neighbor convinced me to buy a Ouija board for a birthday party. I was clueless about such things. After I became a Christian, I remembered the Ouija board, which was still in the house, and asked a minister about it. He showed me Deuteronomy 18: 9-13 and told me to get rid of it. I burned it that night in the fireplace. Within a week I saw several apparitions and contacted the minister, who said that satan was angry because he had lost he hold on me. It’s sad that Ouija boards are sold in toy stores. Most people have no idea that they are opening a door to the occult and demonic oppression when they buy Ouija boards or tarot cards or get involved in yoga and the like. The New Age movement is rampant in the USA. And many Christians unwittingly take yoga thinking it’s only exercise without realizing that karma and reincarnation are yoga doctrines. Thank you for an excellent post and for getting the word out. May God continue to bless you in your endeavors to share The gospel.


    • Thank you for visiting and sharing Sheryl and with such honesty, Satan does indeed have tricks that deceive and confuse but with us having asked for God’s Wisdom and empowering and having received them, we will see through his deception. This is why we are also to test the spirit of those who seek to teach us, they will eventually show their True colors, which is lack of Love and deception, they can change their appearance but not their heart, unless they repent and turn from evil.

      It’s so good Sheryl that you are now focusing on Jesus and not Satan, the Occult, Paganism and New Age are all his playground and sadly many are deceived even those who claim to believe in Jesus.

      I will look forward sharing with you on both our blogs again.

      Christian Love Always – Anne.


  4. Hey Precious,
    This is a great post. I pray that those who were not aware get around to this post and be aware. I am so glad that I am “nosey” when it comes to learning the truth. And might I add, there are those professing to be Christians hollering God this and God that, and are not aware that they are behaving as though they are possessed with demons. I just had an experience with such a person. I rebuked them and moved forward. Needless to say, this person will fight with words professing Jesus is Lord, and behaves otherwise. So sad. Praise God I was able to discern, and He showed me that the person is under satanic influences even though they “give praise to God.” Be on the watch for behaviors of such folk in the church, friends, and family.. Satan is busy deceiving inside some Christians in a big way. God will show you who they are. Discern, Rebuke, Pray, and Loose.


    • So good to hear from you prettytalkative angel, I have missed the honesty and Truth of your sharing, sorry I’m a bit behind in commenting, it seems to be a constant thing with me lately both with Ron not well and my accident and yes a cold too although it didn’t fully develop thank goodness, I have highlighted two of your Posts and will visit you soon as I’m feeling better and Ron is at his Daughters.

      Very True as you shared, I too have experienced rudeness from Christians including Bloggers but I put it down to their Childishness, they are still babes Spiritually, Paul rebuked those in the Church too. But if you feel convicted prettytalkative angel that the person who abused you is under satanic influences, than often as you shared it is because they have been deceived and have walked into it, which is why I wrote this Post as a warning and will write one about the others including those who are childish and deceived later this week, if all goes as planed.

      But like all those who hurt us prettytalkative angel, we continue to pray for them, God won’t make them repent but He will show them the need to do so by their lack, as their sin separates them from Him, like the Prodigal Son did with his Father before he came to his senses and repented but Wow what a welcome Home!

      Christian Love Always – Anne.

    This was very interesting and full of things I did not know. I do have a question, you mentioned Tattoos and piercings, I have seen that scripture in the Bible and never thought about that meaning piercings, do you mean things such as pierced ears like for ladies earrings? Thank you for helping to bring this stuff all out in the open to warn others. blessings to you Anne!


    • Hi T there is another verse that talks about cutting yourself…. Deuteronomy 14 :1 Ye are the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.

      I find with most of the Old Testament food and appearance laws that God was protecting His people and setting them apart from the Pagans, by warning them not to do the things they did and I believe we also should not go with the flow either but show we are different. Apart from the danger of blood poising, I think tattoos are ugly including the so called Christian ones, I share with the Children the need to keep their sin beautiful like God made it. In reference to ear rings, I wish I never got my ears pieced, my left ear lobe got infected after it was pieced and now it is split right through, it’s in two parts, so I can’t wear earnings now.

      God also tells woman 1 Peter 3 not to trust in what they wear on the outside for their beauty but to have inner beauty, if we are tattooing and piecing ourselves why are we doing it.

      In the end times to be able to buy or sell we will have to have the mark of the beast which will be done by laser tattooing, like they do with animals and they have already invented it for us. I feel we are being conditioned and not just by the popularity of tattoos but in other ways too, I will share about this on another Post.

      If we do take the mark of the Beast, we will be under his Authority and also have to worship him as our Lord but as Christians who love Jesus who is Lord and Eternal King, we will choose to be Martyred as traitors instead, which will happen to some of us before the Rapture or First Sickle, as it is called in Revelation.

      Thank you for sharing T – Christian Love – Anne


      • Terri says:

        Thank you for answering my question Anne, that is a whole lot of information, and much appreciated. Have a wonderful weekend!


        • Thank you T, we all have gifts to build up the Body and to reach out to a hurting world, thank you for sharing yours, we are also all unique but we are One in Christ Jesus.

          Your integrity T in all things blesses me greatly and I remember too as I shared before, you are indeed one of God’s Beautiful Woman of Strength.

    Great analogy .Most parts of the world ,societies have up to 65% illiteracy rate ,,,These people can be taught anything and the will believe for the lack of understanding.. Thank you for liking my recent post.Warm regards.Jalal


  7. 50djohnson says:

    Dear Anne, You really need to do a series on each one of these evils and be very specific. For example, I had a talk with all my kids so they could talk to their kids about the book Harry Potter. That is two generations of our culture that have been greatly influenced by the teachings in a book whether they call it all in good fun or not. It was about sorcercers, evil spells, good spells, chanting and everything involved with the worship of Satan. I’ve heard my whole life we are only two generations from complete apostasy. For when one generation fails to teach, the next generation won’t, and the next generation can’t because they don’t know the Truth. This is only one example of the things going on for the lives of our children and grandchildren. Thank you for having the courage to stand up for Truth in our generation. By the way, Phillipians 4:8&9 is my life verse. It is very dear to my heart and soul and central to my whole blog. Think on these things. Blessings, I’m praying for you for when you take a stand against the evil one, you will undoubtedly enter into spiritual warfare. In Christ’s love, Debbie


    • Thank you Debbie for visiting and sharing, you are very wise in your focus and yes I know you Love Philippians 4: 8- 9 it’s one of my favorites too and something I seek to do even when sharing about evil, I warn but don’t overdo which only attracts too much attention to the evil practices in our world today, I keep a balance which is needed otherwise evil instead of God becomes the focus.

      Yes I agree with you very much Debbie about Harry Potter and have warned others by e-mail about these books in the years when I used e-mails and Power points as a Ministry in reaching out to my friends and contacts with God’s Truth. Yes you are right as He tells us, evil is passed down to each new generation, this is why in His Mercy we had the world wide flood in Noah’s time, all man’s thoughts were evil and we would not be here today if they had been allowed to continue to propagate it.

      Debbie what happened to your last Post ? I clicked on to comment but it said page not found.

      Christian Love Always – Anne.

    Anne, great post. Too often people think messing around with the occult is just having fun and there are no consequences. God, as you have put so well, tells us other wise. I feel a large part of the problem is that too few pastors warn their congregations that Satan and his demons are real and should not be things of entertainment. Hope you and Ron are feeling better,. Blessings, David


    • Thank you David and yes what you shared is very True and some promote Secular Physiology in their Churches too that encourages Yoga and Transcendental Meditation.

      Thank you also for your concern for us David, it is greatly appreciated, Ron starts Chemo on Friday and has been warned that he may be very sick, hopefully he won’t suffer too much. As for me, the tendons in my foot are very sore but my feet are often painful so I use God’s Balm for relief, He is so good to provide what is needed for us to endure and if needed intervenes Miraculously, as He has done in my life much more than once and also in other peoples lives.

      Satan can’t do good, his miracles and signs and wonders no matter how realistic are deception based on trickery and delusion, God is the only Healer.

      Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne


  9. Ron says:

    Yes Anne , Satan the father of all lies uses anything to achieve his ends of control and eventually destroying lives , Astrology seems so harmless but that’s the bait to snare you . Like when you start gambling , he`ll make sure you win at first and then you`re hooked. New Age is the weapon he uses and he uses it well .



  10. Colleen says:

    “In some of the New Age religious practices they talk about Christ but not in relation to Jesus, so be careful when sharing with them, you may be deceived and think they are Christians.”
    that’s so true that’s why Jesus said you shall know them by their fruits!


  11. bjsscribbles says:

    A very enlightening post, and I am aware of letting satan into my life


    • Thank you Barb for honesty in your sharing, what is wonderful is you recognize that you did, many are in denial and some don’t care but now that you have asked God to wash away all that mud and create in you a New heart and a right Spirit you can walk in victory.

      Christian Love and many Blessings – Anne.


  12. Savannah Hardcastle says:

    Woa. This is extremely important and no one really writes much about these things. . .thanks, Ann for making these things more known. And that picture of satan and Jesus wrestling….wow. God’s already won, satan can get lost!
    -sav ❤


    • Very True Savannah God has won Eternally, it can be no other way but Satan still controls this earth and we are all tried as he seeks to prove we are his, like he did with Jesus, Paul, Peter Job, Abraham etc but he won’t win, we are God’s own and as He promises in the Scripture below He will be with us.

      Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

      1 Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, in as much as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding Joy.

      1Peter 1:6-7 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

      James 1:12-14 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

      Thank you for visiting and sharing Savannah I noticed your new Post and have highlighted it to visit you too, I’m behind with my visiting but felt lead after responding to my comments to Post this message but I will see you soon.

      Christian Love Always – Anne


  13. I have a couple of questions if you don’t mind. 1. Is Yoga all wrong eg. if done with chanting or just the exercise itself without the chanting… 2. God does give special gifts… do you think as far as the gift of prophecy that there are some who say that they can help with knowing the ‘future’ etc. are ever legitimate? Note: I don’t do yoga (I couldn’t even if I tried) and I don’t go to fortune tellers… What I am referring to in one instance is the mediums that claim to have been given the gift of knowledge etc etc.. There are many on t.v. these days…. Do you think Satan is involved in knowing something about someone and uses these mediums to propagate the idea that all is well with someone’s loved one who has passed away.?.. Diane


    • Yoga exercises Diane, were originally part of Pagans worship to their gods, no doubt they have added some basic exercises today too but they are still not acceptable the same as their Meditation which also leads to mind control, like Hypnotism does.

      The knowledge that Mediums have is Satanic, yes they know the past and what’s happening now but not the future, what they share is deception based on lies but what we believe as True can influence us. God tells us not to talk to those who have died physically, they are really in contact with Demons.

      But He does tell us Diane that His anointed will Prophesy but we must test the spirit of those who do, as it is teaching too, one thing we need to remember is it must never be for money when they Prophesy or for their own glory and it will be confirmed as True if it is genuine.

      Thanks Diane, I added some information to my message because of your questions, there is a lot of evil practices in the Occult, New Age and Paganism, it is good to be warned and warn others especially because they will increase now that we are in the end times.

    • Dianne I have been trying to Post a comment on your last message about Humor, I was correcting the mistake I made with your name but WordPress keep deleting it or someone did, so I will leave it here instead, if the others appear, which has happened before just delete the copies and leave the original.

      I wanted to say sorry about using the wrong name, I was just sharing with Debbie here and than went to comment on your Post, Wow maybe I will get a card soon from the Queen Lol

      But I shouldn’t joke, I visited my friend Mary yesterday and she will be 100 on Friday, yet she is as sharp as a tack, her memory is amazing, she claims it’s from doing crosswords but the most wonderful thing about Mary is she prays every night for many people by name, her Love and Faithfulness is heartwarming.

      I hope I will be like Mary when I really do receive that card from the Queen but perhaps Jesus will come back first and I will receive one from the King or maybe He will say; well done good and faithful servant , yes that is what we are to aim for, His perfection in Love, which we can have now not just when we die but we will be rewarded when we do or when Jesus returns, whatever comes first.

      Blessings – Anne.


      • I tried again to post my comment on your Blog Dianne after I changed my Password but it also disappeared which means it must be WordPress, no one else could have worked out the password that quickly.

        This has happened a few times before but WordPress told me it was the Blogs doing it but I’m sure that would not be so with Christians like you who have integrity and most I Blog with do but sadly not all have had. There could also be something wrong with your settings Dianne, perhaps you will need to ask WordPress Support about this.

        Blessings – Anne.


        • I thought I would try one last time on your Blog Dianne as my Internet was open before which means someone could have had access but they still would have to had WordPress settings but I don’t want to to trouble WordPress unless needed, they have been hacked before a few times but the only other reason is if you have blocked my e-mail address and why would you do this without an explanation, as I said it shows lack of integrity and I’m sure that is not you.

          Blessings – Anne.


      • Hi it’s okay Anne I have done the same thing myself…. I didn’t delete anything and I wasn’t offended… Diane


  14. Yes, Satan has many masks.
