DREAMCATCHERS EXPOSED )))))
Many occultic items seem beautiful or artsy. People fall for this deception and buy things to decorate their house or give as gifts, but in essence they are inviting demons into their house.
A good rule is if itâ€™s not in the Bible and if it doesnâ€™t give God glory-stay away from it!
DREAMCATCHERS are on of these items.
Dream catchers originated with the Ojibwe people. An ancient legend about the origin of the dream catcher is as follows. Storytellers speak of the Spider Woman, known as Asibikaashi; she took care of the children and the people on the land. Eventually, the Ojibwe Nation spread to the corners of North America and it became difficult for Asibikaashi to reach all the children. So the mothers and grandmothers would weave magical webs for the children, using willow hoops and sinew, or cordage made from plants. The dream catchers would filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter our mind. Once the sun rises, all bad dreams just disappear.
The Lakota Indians also have another legend about them.
Hereâ€™s one manâ€™s experience with the them...
About 3 weeks ago he was woken up in the middle of the night because his room was really warm, so as he was going to get a glass of water in the kitchen he walked into a cold spot, which is unusual because the heater was on and the house stays warm, (even when you donâ€™t want it to), and according to him it felt like some unhappy entity passed through him and he brushed it off saying there was a window open, not true, and as he was going back in to the room and going back to bed his dream catcher started spinning around very quickly. As he investigated thinking there was air coming from a window or the heater, his windows were closed tight and he turn off the heater before he got water. He found it strange that it was not because of air moving and right as he thought that he felt the cold spot go though him again.
THATâ€™S DEMONIC FOLKS.
I wanted to ask you a question: Have you ever heard of the story of the Trojan horse?
These men lost the war and lost their lives because they let their guard down and unintentionally invited their enemy into their camp.
Well, Satan is our enemy, and he does the same thing as the people who built the Trojan horse.
Satan masquerades as something that is fun or harmless or decorative. Then once he's inside -- inside your house or your body or your mind -- then he tries to take over.
One of the biggest problems that Christians have today is treating lightly the things of the devil and the influences those things can have in our lives and the lives of those we love.
Let's look at some ways that we flirt with false gods and invite devils into our lives:
How many of you have right now in your possession or at home carved images of other false gods or any articles used in worship of false gods? Maybe you have a voodoo doll someone picked up for $1.00 in New Orleans. Or maybe you have a sand painting brought back for you as a souvenir from the Grand Canyon. Or maybe you have hanging in your office a dream catcher that your mother gave you for your birthday. Or maybe you have some power beads that are supposed to bring good luck.
Now, you might say, "Oh, well, I don't worship it or believe in its powers. I just think it is pretty."
But God's Word tells us that any thing that is used in worship to other gods or is used to ward off evil spirits or that is taught by some culture that it is used to bring good luck is considered an idol and an abomination.
And God's Word tells us what He wants us to do with such objects.
In Deuteronomy 7:25-26 it reads
The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it is an abomination to the Lord thy God. Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt abhor it; for it is a cursed thing."
God's Word says that no matter how pretty something is or no matter if it is a part of your heritage, if it is used by a culture to worship false gods or to do some other kind of magic, you are to burn it, detest it!!! And that verse says that if you keep these things in your possession, you will become snared.
These are cursed objects!!
Get rid of anything that could bring evil into your life! If at first hunch you think it might be cursed-it probably is-trash it!
