Don’t freak out!

If you have read other posts and articles on this blog that talk about the influence of spirits in addiction, it might come across as really weird. Just don’t freak out. As strange as it may seem at first, we know that when Jesus Christ walked the earth, he often would cast out devils and unclean spirits (Matthew 12:22), and this seemed to be part of the healing process as he healed the sick. We know that the disciples of Christ did the same thing (Matthew 10:8). In the book of Luke the disciples of Christ tried to stop someone from casting out devils in Christ’s name. He replied, “And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.” (Luke 9:40). Apparently Jesus was OK with people casting out devils in his name. At the end of the book of Mark, Christ gives a list of signs that will follow those who believe in him; he said, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils;… (Mark 16:17). There it is right at the top of the list. Why is it that so many people who profess to believe in Christ freak out when we talk about these spirits playing a role in addiction, and accessing Christ’s power to free them? Maybe we have seen too many scary movies. Maybe we think if there is an evil spirit involved that we are really super evil. Maybe there is something in our culture that says this can’t be happening in our world today. But it is. It isn’t anything to be afraid of, just to be aware of. It doesn’t mean a person is super evil-out of control possessed when dark spirits are playing a role in addiction. Once we know the truth, with Christ’s help we are empowered to deal with the problem effectively. Satan wants us to do everything we can about the problem except get rid of the problem, namely him. Once the dark spirits are taken out of the situation, it is much, much easier to break free from the bad habit of addiction that is still left over.
If in doubt, give it a try. Go along with the video demonstration on this blog. You don’t have anything to loose – oh wait, yes, you might loose your addictive cravings. I would say 9 times out of 10 when I coach a person through the process, there is a change in their addictive cravings right there on the spot. Results don’t lie. Completely healing from the addiction still takes some time to work through, but with the right Christ centered tools it doesn’t have to be as hard as most people experience. There is hope for complete healing through the power of Jesus Christ!
God bless you!
