and the Holy Scriptures
In the physical as well as in the spiritual worlds, knowing the enemy
is always advantageous. If you are considering praying in earnest to
receive Heavenly protection against the snares of the evil one, we
encourage you to first acquaint yourself with what the Holy Scriptures
say about evil, possessions, exorcisms, etc.
There are Ten Parts to this Series. Using our Search
Engine, you may find any topic related to demonic possesion on
these Sections as well as in the entire Domain of The M+G+R Foundation.
Once you know The Enemy better, your prayer accessing the Power of God
will be far more effective for your protection, and that of your loved
ones, against the snares of the evil one.
PART 8 [Old Testament]
The LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why has your
countenance fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if
you do not do well, sin is couching at the door; its desire is for you,
but you must master it."
The LORD saw that the wickedness of man
was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of
his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that he had
made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart. So the LORD
said, "I will blot out man whom I
have created from the face of the ground, man and beast and creeping
things and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
shall not be found among you any one who burns his son or his daughter
as an offering, any one who practices divination, a soothsayer, or an
augur, or a sorcerer, or a charmer, or a medium, or a wizard, or a
necromancer. For whoever does these things is an abomination to the
LORD; and because of these abominable practices the LORD your God is
driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the LORD
your God. For these nations, which you are about to dispossess, give
heed to soothsayers and to diviners; but as for you, the LORD your God
has not allowed you so to do."
not turn to mediums or wizards; do not seek them out, to be defiled by
them: I am the LORD your God"
1 Samuel 28:9-18
The woman said to him, "Surely you know what Saul has done, how
he has cut off the mediums and the wizards from the land. Why then are
you laying a snare for my life to bring about my death?" But
Saul swore to her by the LORD, "As
the LORD lives, no punishment shall come upon you for this thing."
Then the woman said, "Whom shall I
bring up for you?" He said, "Bring
up Samuel for me." When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out with
a loud voice; and the woman said to Saul, "Why have you deceived me? You are Saul."
The king said to her, "Have no fear;
what do you see?" And the woman said to Saul, "I see a god coming up out of the earth."
He said to her, "What is his
appearance?" And she said, "An
old man is coming up; and he is wrapped in a robe." And Saul
knew that it was Samuel, and he bowed with his face to the ground, and
Then Samuel said to Saul, "Why have
you disturbed me by bringing me up?" Saul answered, "I am in great distress; for the
Philistines are warring against me, and God has turned away from me and
answers me no more, either by prophets or by dreams; therefore I have
summoned you to tell me what I shall do." And Samuel said, "Why then do you ask me, since the LORD
has turned from you and become your enemy? The LORD has done to you as
he spoke by me; for the LORD has torn the kingdom out of your hand, and
given it to your neighbor, David. Because you did not obey the voice of
the LORD, and did not carry out his fierce wrath against Amalek,
therefore the LORD has done this thing to you this day."
Let us pray...
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us
in the day of battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and
snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou,
Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the Power of God, thrust into Hell
satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the
ruin of souls. AMEN!
