How Learning Taoist Magic Made me Find God’s Ways More Relevant
I used to find some of Christianity’s ways rather tedious and no longer made as much sense to me after awhile of using them. And then later on I drifted further away into a more universal path. But then I was led to learn the subjects of Fate which subsequently led me to take a course in Taoist Talismans.
I realize that I used to find God’s ways rather boring in many cases, but when I learn Satan’s ways, God’s ways become truly interesting and relevant.
2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
In the course on Taoist Talismans, I actually became “Authorized” by the Lineage’s spiritual power to draw and create Taoist Talismans. I found out that it involves connecting with the authority and power of deities and issuing commands to be carried out by the spirits as “heavenly edicts” and stamped with a heavenly seal that represents spiritual authority.
Later on I threw all my collection of talismans (that came with the course) away because it brought a curse of loss and destruction into my life. Satan cannot bless me because I belong to Jesus. And Satan is the enemy of Christ.
Satan always operates the same way as God operates and you can find that out in Satan’s religions and spiritual paths.
In Christianity, we are given the Gift of Righteousness. Righteousness brings Rights. We have the Right to prosperity, heath, peace and protection. These things are not an option for a Christian. It is theirs by divine right and they are supposed to claim it. This is not wishy washy like New Age affirmations. When we speak our rights based on God’s word and promises, it is from the King of Heaven Himself, and these Heavenly edicts are commands issued that have to be carried out by angels and spirits.
Those people who use New Age wishy washy affirmations tend to find little results unless they serve Satan represented in the form of all other gods other than the One True God. These gods are the gods, deities and spirits of other religions. It can also include channeled nonphysical entities and Egyptian gods of ancient mystery religions.
They might serve these gods knowingly or unknowingly even if they claim to be non-religious.
Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
One who gets ahead in this world by having greater prosperity and status is actually experiencing spiritual promotion either from God or Satan. No one ascends on their own. That is what the devil wants people to think.
I realize that in the past when I prospered supernaturally years ago, I was actually practicing God’s ways of claiming my rights in Christ and exercising spiritual authority and not just doing wishy washy New Age affirmations alone that are weak in real power. Later on I got confused and thought those New Age affirmations alone could do the trick and started to drift in and out of Christianity and further from God over time.
But experience helps me to realize how the spiritual realm really works and what is God’s Truth and Reality vs Satan’s Deception and Delusion.
As I reconnect back with God, I am being restored in God’s ways that the Devil has sought to separate me from and make me forget.
Daniel 4:30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? 31 While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. 32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. 33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws. 34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation: 35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? 36 At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me. 37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.
Robert Henderson who is a man of God that wrote the book “Operating in the Courts of Heaven” says that you cannot fake the spirit realm out. The demons know who had authority and who didn’t have authority. The Bible says that Satan is called the Adversary. The Greek word for Adversary is Antidikos, which means “Against Rights”. He is the one who brings a lawsuit to deny what is rightfully ours. Jesus is our Advocate, which means He is our defence lawyer in the Courts of Heaven. Know your rights first, know God’s verdict, then command. You will find that all those promises in God’s work when you are approaching God legally in the Courts of Heaven.
The Chinese Metaphysical Art of Qi Men Dun Jia says that the 4 Levels that govern Destiny is Heaven, Earth, Man and Spirit. Religion and Spirituality deals with the Spirit Level.
Are Christians supposed to learn Feng Shui, Astrology, Occult Knowledge, etc?
Well in the Book of Daniel, this was what was said about Daniel and his three friends:
Daniel 1:4 Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.
Daniel 1:17 As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
Daniel 1:20 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.
Daniel 2:47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.
God is a revealer of secrets but Christians are supposed to serve God and not bow down to any other gods. Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den to be eaten for continuing to pray openly to God despite the King’s edict not to. His three friends were thrown into a fiery furnace to be burnt to death for refusing to bow down to the great statue of a deity that the King worshipped. But all 4 of them were saved supernaturally from any harm. And the King started to believe in the God Almighty whom they served. All these events can be found in the Book of Daniel.
Of all the subjects in the universe, the one I am most interested in is the subject of Destiny. Destiny is governed by Heaven, Earth, Man and Spirit. At the Spirit level, God has a destiny for everyone and Satan also has a destiny for everyone. Everyone of us has a destiny that is written in the books in heaven but Satan wants to thwart God’s destiny for us and override it with his own destiny for us. In this life, there is spiritual warfare going on between God’s Kingdom and Dominion vs Satan’s Kingdom and Dominion over all sentient beings on this planet.
Psalms 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
In all subjects to do with Destiny, Satan wants to show us only 10% while blinding people from seeing the other 90% that God wants to show us. Satan would mix the 10% truth with 90% lies and delusion but God’s Light shines the Truth through Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
1 John 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
