The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture is set to host Chelsea Clinton, Anthony Fauci, Deepak Chopra, and others for a May conference to explore the “mind, body, and soul” and its role in health care.
The Vatican Council for Culture and the Cura Foundation and the Science and Faith (STOQ) Foundation are partnering together to host “the world’s leading physicians, scientists, leaders of faith, ethicists, patient advocates, policymakers, philanthropists and influencers to engage in powerful conversations on the latest breakthroughs in medicine, health care delivery and prevention.”
Speakers for the virtual conference are the world’s elites. Those picked to lecture on health and the soul include CEOs of large pharmaceutical companies, including Moderna and Pfizer, and former supermodel Cindy Crawford, English primatologist Jane Goodall, Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry, and CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
Speaker Chelsea Clinton is a high-profile abortion advocate, like her mother and father, Hillary and Bill Clinton.
Chelsea labels the pro-life movement as an “anti-choice movement,” and is an outspoken supporter of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S.
In 2018, Chelsea spoke at a “Rise up for Roe” event in New York City, a meeting organized by the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League and Planned Parenthood to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. During her address, she glowingly credited legal abortion for adding trillions of dollars to the U.S. economy.
“American women entering the labor force from 1973 to 2009 added three and a half trillion dollars to our economy,” Clinton stated. “The net, new entrance of women — that is not disconnected from the fact that Roe became the law of the land in January of 1973.”
The Catholic Church publicly professes that life begins at conception and “abortion is a case of direct killing of an innocent human being — a violation of the rights of the youngest members of our society and the human family.”
In fact, the Catholic Church has been a leading advocate for the right to life for hundreds of years. “Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion. This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable. Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law,” reads the Catholic Catechism.
There is no mention of Clinton’s anti-life stance on the Vatican’s website, she is simply identified as “vice chair, Clinton Foundation.” The Church is actively elevating Clinton, who vocally advocates for a practice that harms mothers and kills innocent children, as an authority on the “mind, body, and soul.”
The conference will take place May 6-8, and “will be moderated by renowned journalists, who will explore the role of religion, faith and spirituality, and the interplay of the mind, body, and soul – and, ultimately, search for areas of convergence between the humanities and the natural sciences.”
The “renowned” journalists include Katie Couric, Richard Lui, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Amy Robach, Robin Roberts, and Meredith Vieira.
“Together we will focus on advances in medical innovation and the creation of healthier communities and seek to catalyze new, interdisciplinary approaches and partnerships to improve health and wellbeing, as well as understand human uniqueness,” the Vatican said.

The Setup – Almost one year ago, former President Trump declared a national emergency and the White House announced a 15-day plan to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Governments around the world either preceded the U.S. or soon followed with similar pronouncements. The upsurge in totalitarianism since these edicts were installed is mind-boggling.
Staying home, social distancing, and hand washing were the first steps in the slippery slope towards medical martial law. Then came the lockdowns and mandatory face mask policies. These were soon followed by pressure to take a COVID-19 test, contact tracing, and quarantines. Next were vaccines that were rushed to production, given only “emergency use authorization” by the FDA and still deemed experimental, having completely skipped long-term safety studies. Now, the threat of vaccine passports/certificates represents the next step towards complete tyranny and subjugation of the people.
All of these draconian measures have served as social engineering tools to get people used to having “experts” and government officials tell them what to do. In fact, you could argue that all of humanity (outside those in authority) has been slowly tortured over the past year. With staggering numbers of suicides and rising rates of substance abuse, many decided to just check out. The remaining masses have been subjected to classical conditioning like Pavlov’s dogs. During this “plandemic”, most people have been retrained to depend on authorities to tell them when they can go to work, visit loved ones, travel, go to church, hug someone or even shake their hand.
The path to totalitarian control always starts with something simple and seemingly reasonable. It’s also usually accompanied by a promise of peace and safety in exchange for surrendering one’s rights.
There is a sickness going around that’s much worse than any coronavirus. It’s called “Stockholm Syndrome” and it infects those who are too ignorant, trusting, and fearful to question those in authority and hold them accountable. Infected people lap up every word people like Dr. Anthony Fauci say, no matter how many times he’s contradicted himself or even been caught lying. They fully agree with taking a vaccine rolled out at warp speed with completely new technology that’s never before been tested on human beings. They yell at people in stores who refuse to wear face masks. They call anyone with facts contradicting the mainstream narrative a conspiracy theorist. They cheer when people who disagree with them get censored, deplatformed, and even lose their jobs. They don’t balk when authorities extend or issue new state of emergency rules restricting their freedom. They don’t even get angry when hypocritical officials are caught violating their own rules. But they are quick to attack anyone challenging their beloved rulers and attempting to restore liberty such as when Texas Governor Greg Abbott reopened the state and lifted mask mandates (well, sort of).
We all know someone infected with this syndrome. It might be a family member, close friend, co-worker or neighbor. They have been conditioned to love their despotic overlords. In turn they’ve learned to love their slavery and cheer when authorities clamp down and then “allow” them to do what was once normal and considered basic rights. It’s because of people like this that greater restrictions and oppression await us all.
One Passport to Rule Us All
The engineers of the “plandemic” recognized that new technology is often resisted by the masses, but could be adopted quickly due to a public health crisis. What better way to coerce people into using technology that has long been planned to enslave humanity than by holding them hostage to a “deadly” virus causing people to fear for their lives?
Vaccine or “immunity” passports represent the final nail in the coffin of freedom. If the following headlines don’t get you angry, then you must be among those with Stockholm Syndrome who are unassumingly helping the elites erect a digital prison planet that will be extremely difficult to escape.
The Seven-Step Path from Pandemic to Totalitarianism
First published on GR in April 2020.
There are just seven steps from pandemic declaration to permanent totalitarianism – and many jurisdictions are about to start Step 5
As if it was planned in advance, billions of people around the globe are being forced step by rapid step into a radically different way of life, one that involves far less personal, physical and financial freedoms.
Here is the template for rolling this out.
A new virus starts to spread around the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) declares a pandemic.
International agencies, public-health officials, politicians, media and other influential voices fan fear by focusing almost exclusively on the contagiousness of the virus and the rising numbers of cases, and by characterizing the virus as extremely dangerous.
Within a few days governments at national and local levels also declare states of emergency. At lightning speed they impose lock-down measures that confine most people to their homes – starting with closing schools – and shut down much of the global economy. World markets implode.
The stunned, fearful and credulous public – convinced over the previous few years that their bodies do not have the natural ability to react to pathogens by producing antibodies that confer long-lasting immunity – largely complies willingly.
The first weekly virtual class on local emergency and crisis responses to COVID-19 is held for mayors and other city officials around the world. Coordinated by a handful of American organizations in the academic, medical, financial, political and transportation spheres, the classes feature guests ranging from Barack Obama to Bill Gates.
National, state/provincial and municipal leaders, as well as public-health officials, start daily press briefings. They use them to pump out frightening statistics and modeling asserting the virus has the potential to kill many millions.
Officials and media downplay or distort inconveniently low death tolls from the virus and instead focus on alarming statistics produced by compliant academics, social-media influencers and high-profile organizations.
The main message is that this is a war and many lives are at stake unless virtually everybody stays at home. Mainstream media amplify the trope that the world is at the mercy of the virus.
Simultaneously, central banks and governments hand out massive amounts of cash largely to benefit the big banks. And they bring in giant private-sector financial firms to manage the process despite these global companies’ very poor track record in the 2008-2009 crash. Governments also rapidly start to create trillions of pounds’ worth of programs that include compensating businesses and workers for their shutdown-related losses.
There is a concerted effort by all levels of government and public health to very rapidly ramp up testing for viral RNA, along with production of personal protective equipment.
They push aside the need for regulation, including quality standards and independent verification of tests’ rates of accuracy, by insisting that fast approval and roll-out are imperative for saving lives.
Models are released that predict snowballing of numbers of cases, hospitalizations and deaths even under best-case scenarios.
At about the same time, public-health officials significantly loosen the criteria for viral infections, outbreaks and deaths, particularly in the oldest members of society. That increases the numbers of cases and deaths ascribed to the new pathogen.
The media continue to clamour for more testing and for severe punishment of people who aren’t completely compliant with the lock-down measures.
As a result, there’s little backlash as police and military with sweeping new powers enforce these measures and give stiff penalties or even jail terms to those who disobey orders. States also monitor with impunity massive numbers of people’s movements via their cellphones.
Vast human resources are focused on tracking down people who have had contact with a virus-positive individual and confining them to their homes. Thus the portion of the public exposed to the virus remains relatively small.
It also contributes to social isolation. Among many effects, this enables those in control to even further erase individual and collective choices, voices and power.
When the numbers of cases and deaths start to plateau, local officials claim it’s too early to tell whether the virus has finished passing through their population and therefore, restrictive measures must continue.
An alternative narrative is that if such measures aren’t kept in place there will be a resurgence of cases and deaths. Yet another is that the continuing climb in elderly persons’ deaths means all bets are off for the time being.
They admit that initial models incorrectly predicted there would be a tsunami of cases, ICU admissions and deaths. However, they assert more time is needed before it can be determined whether it’s safe to loosen some of the restrictions and let children return to school or adults go back to work.
Officials do not try to calculate the overall skyrocketing cost to their populations and economies of the shut-downs and other measures against, nor do they discuss what cost level may be too high.
They and powerful media organizations also push for the massive virus-testing over-capacity to be used to surveil the general population for viral DNA in their bodies. At the same time, the roll-out begins of widespread blood testing for antibodies to the virus.
Meanwhile, new data are published showing the virus has a high capacity to mutate. Scientists and officials interpret this as meaning a larger medical arsenal will be needed to combat it.
About two or three weeks later, the dramatic increase in testing for viral DNA produces the desired goal of a significant upsurge in the number of people found positive for the virus.
Public-health officials add jet fuel to the surge by adding to their case and death tallies the large number of people who are only suspected – and not lab-test-confirmed – to have had an infection. Politicians and public-health officials tell the populace this means they cannot return to their jobs or other activities outside the home for the time being.
Governments work with public-health agencies, academics, industry, the WHO and other organizations to start to design and implement immunity-passport systems for using the results of the widespread antibody testing to determine who can be released from the lock-downs. This is one of many goals of the seven steps.
Meanwhile, government leaders continue to highlight the importance of vaccines for besting the virus.
Large swaths of the population don’t have the antibodies to the virus because they’ve been kept from being exposed to it; they eagerly accept these medications even though they’ve been rushed to market with inadequate safety testing. They believe these medical products offer the only hope for escaping the virus’s clutches.
Soon the new virus starts another cycle around the globe – just as influenza and other viruses have every year for millennia. Officials again fan the flames of fear by positing the potential for millions of deaths among people not yet protected from the virus.
They rapidly roll out virus and antibody testing again, while companies sell billions more doses of antivirals and booster vaccines.
Governments simultaneously cede control of all remaining public assets to global companies. This is because local and national governments’ tax bases were decimated during Step 1 and they’re virtually bankrupt from their unprecedented spending in the war against the virus in the other steps.
This is coupled with the creation of permanent totalitarianism controlled by global companies and a 24/7 invasive-surveillance police state supported by widespread blossoming of ‘smart’ technology.
The key players repeat the cycle of hysteria and massive administration of antivirals and booster shots every few months.
And they implement a variation of steps 1 to 7 when another new pathogen appears on the planet.
Sounds far-fetched? Unfortunately, it’s not.
With the arrival of COVID-19 many countries quickly completed Steps 1, 2 and 3.
Step 4 is well under way in a large number of jurisdictions.
Step 5 is on track to start in early May.

The existence of chemtrails used to be a topic of debate, but they are now being more widely acknowledged by experts like meteorologists to scientists. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to deny that they exist as more and more people are coming down with illnesses related to chemtrails.
When TV host Rachel Reenstra had trouble overcoming a persistent cough, accompanied by aches, pains, and fever, she visited a doctor. After chest x-rays revealed a type of bronchitis, she was given antibiotics, which only seemed to make her feel worse.
Her doctor told her that lots of bacterial infections are going around, and when she asked him where they are coming from, he told her the truth that many doctors wouldn’t dare reveal to their patients: Chemtrails are at the heart of widespread lung problems right now. Surprised by his candor, she asked if she could videotape him talking about the phenomenon. You can see the video below; the unnamed doctor appears just before the 8-minute mark.
The doctor says he has witnessed hundreds of Californians suffering from this problem, which he calls “chemtrail lung.” He says it is an “emerging problem” that is being faced all around the world, with the toxic gases, chemicals, virus particles, heavy metals and other gases that are being sprayed into the atmosphere leading to problematic levels of respiratory infections.
He added that it’s particularly bad where Reenstra lives in California thanks to the area’s proximity to Palmdale Airport. He said that the area’s topography and the Santa Ana Winds make this problem worse, and the fact that many of the nation’s most polluted cities are found in California doesn’t help. In addition, he cited gases from fracking as contributing to the problem, along with antibiotic overuse and inhaling mold and mildew.
Interestingly, Reenstra’s symptoms initially pointed to the flu. When she told her doctor she hadn’t gotten a flu shot, he was relieved. In the video, you can also see the courageous doctor admitting that he does not recommend the flu shot except for a select few and even then, he advises against getting it every year. He points out that scientists basically guess what to include in each year’s vaccine, and some years it’s less than 20 percent effective. He feels it doesn’t benefit patients, and they are better off being proactive about health and prevention than relying on shots.
Both the doctor and Reenstra are risking their careers by talking publicly about this controversial issue, and one can only hope that their courage will inspire others to speak out.
Nearly everyone on Earth breathes in unsafe air
It’s not just chemtrails you need to worry about, by the way; there’s also the matter of particulate matter. The type of fine particulate matter that comes from car exhausts, for example, can cause inflammation in the lungs and beyond, contributing to heart disease and insulin resistance.
A recent report from the Health Effects Institute found that 95 percent of our planet’s population breathes in unsafe air, which comes from everything from burning solid fuels like coal or biomass to transportation emissions. Last year, more than six million people’s deaths were related to air pollution, with causes like chronic lung disease, lung cancer, stroke or heart attack.
With so many toxins already floating around in the air we breathe, the last thing we need is chemtrails putting even more toxic substances into our air. Discover more news about geoengineering and chemtrails at Geoengineering.news.
GeoeongineeringWatch.org is pleased to announce the release of our groundbreaking documentary that conclusively exposes the existence of global climate engineering operations.
Global climate engineering operations are a reality. Atmospheric particle testing conducted by GeoengineeringWatch.org has now proven that the lingering, spreading jet aircraft trails, so commonly visible in our skies, are not just condensation as we have officially been told. Over 75 years ago global powers committed the planet and populations to a climate engineering experiment from which there is no return.
The intentional dimming of direct sunlight by aircraft dispersed particles, a form of global warming mitigation known as “Solar Radiation Management”, has and is causing catastrophic damage to the planet’s life support systems. The highly toxic fallout from the ongoing geoengineering operations is also inflicting unquantifiable damage to human health.
Why aren’t scientists or official sources disclosing the ongoing climate engineering operations?
Who is responsible for carrying out these programs?
What will the consequences be if geoengineering / solar radiation management operations are allowed to continue?
The Dimming documentary will provide answers to these questions and many more.
Thank you for viewing and for notifying others of The Dimming film release.

Surrender is a term that is generally used to refer to losing or giving up in a battle. When we surrender to YAHUAH, we are choosing to give up the fight between our selfish sinful man and YAHUAH. We surrender our will to His and this helps us to have a relationship with Him. Each time we surrender more of ourselves to Him, we are able to become more filled with and guided by the RUACH HA’QODESH (SET APART Spirit) (Ephesians 5:18).
The reason we have to make the choice to surrender to YAHUAH is because of the original surrender of this world to the Devil at the fall of mankind (Genesis 3:17–19). This made Satan the “elohiym (god) of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4) and caused all people to be born under the power of sin because of Adam’s sin (Romans 5:12). Until YAHUSHA returns and takes His rightful place as the final authority and ruler over all, we have to make the decision over and over to surrender our minds, wills, and actions to Him (Romans 8:20–22; 12:1–2).
Our first stage of surrender is the surrender of our lives to YAHUAH when we are saved. The RUACH HA’QODESH (SET APART Spirit) draws us to Messiah and we make the choice to surrender ourselves to Him and receive His free gift of salvation (John 6:44; Acts 2:21). When we choose to submit to the headship of YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH, we become YAHUAH’s children (John 1:12; 2 Corinthians 5:21). We are new creations in Messiah (2 Corinthians 5:17).
As we continue to grow in our walk with YAHUAH, it becomes more natural and more necessary to surrender more of our lives to Him so that we may know Him more closely and serve Him more effectively. This continuation of our surrender enables us to be filled more and more with the RUACH HA’QODESH (SET APART Spirit), showcasing His character and the fruit of the RUACH (Spirit) (Ephesians 5:18; Galatians 5:22–23).
When we seek YAHUAH, we find Him (Jeremiah 29:13; Matthew 7:7–11). This leads us to multiple points of decision throughout the course of our lives. Each decision we make comes down to surrender: Will we surrender to YAHUAH and His will for our lives, or will we live for ourselves without submitting to Him? The battle to surrender our will to YAHUAH’s is a difficult and ongoing one, but it is for our good. The choice to engage in the battle is ours (Joshua 24:15).
YAHUAH calls us to live lives that are surrendered to Him so that we may be “instruments of His righteousness” (Romans 6:13), denying our fleshly desires for the greater cause of YAHUSHA Messiah (Mark 8:34). When we surrender our minds, wills, and actions to YAHUSHA, we exchange our life for His: “I have been crucified with Messiah. It is no longer I who live, but Messiah who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of ELOHIYM, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). YAHUSHA surrendered His life for ours, so we surrender our lives for Him. In doing this, we grow closer to Him, help draw others to Him, and reap a heavenly reward (Luke 6:22–23).
Brother Gerald would like to take a moment of your most valuable time to share with you part of my personal journey of some very dark days we were facing back in the day.
Back when Brother Gerald was married the wife had fallen for a TV preacher called Bennie Hinn. She wanted to be like him. To be world famous and go on tour. She had to go see him when he came to Atlanta Georgia and we bought the tickets, the hotel rooms and took along a van load of her friends.
It was a mad house and circus to say the least what I saw. The second service we attended the ex kept holding her hands over her face during the exceptional emotional music they were playing and when she came up for air she said that god had called her to preach and she was going to quit her job.
I knew right then and there my marriage was over for the absence of her income will and did bankrupted me.
She gotten into demonology or something. She hooked up with a group that was supposed to be casting out demons from people and saw some weird stuff. Well the ex had it in her mind because I enjoy smooth jazz and old tv westerns I was full of the devil. I had demons and could not be head or priest of our family and now she’s the head. And It’s either her way or the highway.
After she had flushed the 3rd set of wedding rings down the toilet and 3 months without her contribution to the household income and bill collators at me left and right. Then she says you do it my way or else and I said I guess it’s or else and she goes and flushed the 3rd set of wedding rings.
I packed up my bags and left.
I became very depressed and instead of turning to the Almighty for help I turned to those whacked out psychotic witchdoctors and they had be on so much dope I became suicidal and even attempted it by taking 17 different medications those quacks had me on.
As I was being over taken with the drug overdosing I called my daughter and told her I was sorry I had failed her as a daddy. I told her that I love her with all my heart. I’m sure as I was being overcome by the drugs my words became slurred and I possibly passed out while talking.
She immediately called 911 and sent them to me.
All I can faintly remember someone running a tube down my throat and fighting them to get it out.
3 days later I woke in the hospital then taken to a mental institution for 30 days.
What an ordeal that was.
As I was trying to heal and start a new life without my family was most difficult adjustment for I had lost my identity and had to rediscover and redefine myself a new.
I was working in a church as music minister and the pastors wife wanted me to learn the song by the The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir “Use Me”.
I was not familiar with the tune and called my daughter to see if she did and yes she did and we made plans for my to go over so she can help me learn the new song “Use Me”.
We caught on fast and had a most cherished time sitting at the piano with my daughter singing and playing one more time.
The song was a big success and many were blessed with our presentation.
Just a few days later I get call from a old friend that my daughter (of 22 years old) had past away in her sleep due to heart failure.
When I heard this words I felt I was going to have heart failure as well.
And all I could think of here this precious little angle saved my good for nothing life and I was helpless saving hers.
I didn’t blame ABBA Father for this tragedy but I sure did blame myself and took years to get though losing our precious daughter.
So this little tune means a lot to old Brother Gerald.
Hope you enjoy my feeble attempt giving our ABBA YAHUAH Highest Esteem.
If you can use anything YAH, You can use me
If You can use anything YAH, You can use me
Take my hands YAH and my feet
Touch my heart YAH, speak through me
If You can use anything YAH, You can use me
I remember a story in the Bible days
You took a man called Moses with a rod in his hand
You told Moses, “Take the rod in your hand,
stretch it forth and walk on dry land”
If You can use anything YAH, You can use me
I remember a story, I remember it well
He took a shepherd boy, David, with a sling in his hand
He took the rock with the sling in his hand
Flung the rock and the giant fell dead
And I know if You can use anything, You can use me
The greek word “daimon” means “spirit” (good or evil), although in the New Testament it is only used to designate evil spirits. With the exception of Hebrews 17, 18 in which it has the generic meaning of “divinities”.
In the pagan atmosphere of the classical epoch, the points of reference used concerning the concept of demon are very different, since they considered the existence of phantasms, eons, nature spirits, mediators, souls of the dead, good and evil spirits, etc.
Demons are fallen angels: spiritual, immutable, and immortal. Demons are not omniscient, but each one has a specific knowledge, sometimes on only one subject, sometimes on more than one. Their power is limited to that which Yahuah allows, so they are not omnipotent. No reference has been made about omnipresence, so it is as yet unclear if they can be in different places at the same time.
Demons are disembodied spirits that are at work virtually everywhere in the world today. They are evil in nature, and are obedient to Satan, their ruler. In Scripture they are also known as “evil spirits” or “unclean spirits”.
There are a number of theories about their origin, but Scripture doesn’t make it absolutely clear. Many believe they are fallen angels who fell when Satan, rebelled against Yahuah in heaven. This theory has the problem that demons seem to be earth-bound spirits that walk and cannot fly unlike angels. There are fallen angels, who presently occupy positions of influence and authority over the earth in a kind of Satanic hierarchy, and are referred to in Scripture as “principalities and powers” Ephesians 6:12.
Earth bound demons are the “foot soldiers” in Satan’s kingdom, and they are the ones we deal with on a day to day basis, whether we realize it or not.
Some speculate that demons are the spirits of former inhabitants of earth who rebelled against Yahuah, possibly the results of the offspring of fallen angels and women in the days before the flood Genesis 6.
Scripture doesn’t tell us and we don’t have to know. What matters is to know how to
deal with them and overcome them, as they are everywhere and they enjoy making our lives miserable if they can.
It may be that when Yahuah judged the snake in Genesis 3 and said it would crawl on its belly that this translated into a loss of power for many fallen angels. It’s impossible to say with total Scriptural authority.
Characteristics of demons
They are evil, malicious, deceptive and never to be trusted. We can see that demons possess the following:
“Now there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, saying, “Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Yahusha? Did you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of Yahuah!” Mark 1:23, 24
Demons have knowledge and are able to come up with things to say. The knowledge that demons have explains the source of knowledge at work with “psychics” and other occultists. It explains the knowledge of past events and places that supposedly confirms the false doctrine of reincarnation.
Will Spirits (demons) return where cast out, to see if the Ruach ha Kodesh is present When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came. Luke 11:24 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation Matthew 12:45
Evil spirits can speak through a person! In our day, some call this “channeling” the person with the evil spirit is being used to channel the Spirit from the Spirit world to the physical.” Spirit guides and those that channel spirits need to ponder what Scripture says about a spirit speaking through a person.
Demons are self-willed beings who seek to impose their will on the will of man.
“You believe that there is one Elohim. You do well. Even the demons believe – and tremble!” James 2:19.
Demons definitely fear Yahuah and his power. On the other hand, they have pleasure in seeing people suffer. Anyone who is that way is so because they identify with the demons in them.
Legends of demons
“Then He asked him, ‘What is your name?’ And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion; for we are many.” The demons begged Yahusha, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.” Matthew 8:31
Demons usually operate in groups. They know who they are and they know their names and functions. Sometimes demons change their functions. One spirit said, “I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.” 2 Chronicles 18:21.
Sudden and major changes of events can cause some demons to change their function or activity. Most of the time, however, they continue with what they have been able to do successfully in the lives of people.
Pagan religions “sacrifice to demons”
They sacrificed to demons, which are not Yahuah, gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, and gods your fathers did not fear. Deuteronomy 32:17
They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons. Psalms 106:37
A believer has authority to drive out demons, just as Yahusha did
He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. Matthew 10:1
Some people know this as “exorcism.” Note: Wooden cross and/or holy water is NEVER used, in Scripture, to drive a demon out of a person.
The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching and with authority! He even gives orders to evil spirits and they obey him.” Mark 1:27
For Yahusha had commanded the evil spirit to come out of the man. Many times it had seized him, and though he was chained hand and foot and kept under guard, he had broken his chains and had been driven by the demon into solitary places. Luke 8:29
But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of Yahuah, then the kingdom of Yahuah has come upon you. Matthew 12:28
Whenever the evil spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, “You are the Son of Yahuah.” Mark 3:11
Evil spirits in John’s vision looked like frogs:
Then I saw three evil spirits that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. Revelations 16:13
Demons are deceivers
They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of Yahuah Almighty. Revelations 16:14
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 1 Timothy 4:1
There are many ways in which demons can deceive people, but the more common ones are through occult involvement, Ouija boards and seances. Dear reader, don’t ever dabble with such, even out of curiosity or amusement. If you have already, ask Yahuah to forgive you and renounce all such behavior.
Demonic supernatural powers are believed to include fabrication, psychokinesis, levitation, divination, possession, seduction, ESP, telepathy, witchcraft, and curses, as well as binding, making contracts, controlling the classical elements, animal control, and provocation. Demons use variants and combinations of these powers to harass, demoralize, confuse, and disorient the victim, or the willing subject of demonic interest. All of these attacks, as well as their effect or scope, can be ended by Yahuah. Demons are believed to have the power to physically or mentally hurt people, but only within the boundaries of what Yahuah will allow.
Demons can destroy any material on the earth; these supernatural powers are always inferior to the power of Yahuah. Yahuah may use His will to cancel or destroy any effect the demon chooses to invoke. According to the gospels, Yahusha also had full power over demons and they always obeyed his commands.
Demons assumably are granted permission to test, bring about trials and to tempt people through the use of their destructive powers, to make people prove their faith, sometimes as a means to carry out the will of Yahuah. Often Demons are said to create negative emotions, wreaking havoc, ensuing chaos, and disrupting peace
Possession of Demons
The word “unclean spirit” and demon (devil) are used indistinctly. Thus, the syrophoenician woman says that her daughter is possessed by a devil in Matthew, and in Mark it says that she had an unclean spirit.
The different names with which these devils are designated are: -deaf spirit -spirit of dumbness -impure spirit
-evil spirit -spirit of an unclean devil
In the Gospel, the word “lunatic” appears once Matthew 17, 14.
In ancient times, this word could refer to epilepsy and to possession, and it was derived from the belief that the moon had an influence in the critical states of these persons. “Energumen” (madman; demoniac) is a form of referring to the possessed and comes from the word “energy”, due to the strength that these people had in their critical moments The possession of the demons has been a problem to Christian demonology and theology since early times.
A very early form of incarnation of demons was the idea of demonic possession, trying to explain that a demon entered the body of a person with some purpose or simply to punish that one for some allegedly committed sin. But this soon acquired greater proportions, trying to explain how demons could seduce people to have sexual relationships with them or induce them to commit other sins. To Christian scholars, demons didn’t always have to manifest themselves in a visible and tangible form. Sometimes it was through possession.
Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. This girl followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High Yahuah, who are telling you the way to be saved.” She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so troubled that he turned around
and said to the spirit, “In the name of Yahusha the Messiah I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her. When the owners of the slave girl realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities. Acts 16:16-19
You believe that there is one Elohim. Good! Even the demons believe and shudder.
When Yahusha rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons Mark 16:9
And also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out Luke 8:2
Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by evil spirits and all of them were healed. Acts 5:16
There are some Scriptural mentions of the possession by demons, similar in result to possession as in invocation, in the New Testament, according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke as they could be seen and heard, as well as banished. When the evening had come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with [his] word, and healed all that were sick: Matthew 8:16
And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, Saying, Let [us] alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Yahusha? Art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of Yahuah. And Yahusha rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, what thing is this? What new doctrine [is] this? For with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him. Mark 1:23-27
And when he Yahusha was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, what have we to do with thee, Yahusha, thou Son of Yahuah? Art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
And there was a good way off from them a herd of many swine feeding. So the devils besought him, saying, if thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters. And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils. Matthew 8:28-33
The purpose of this study is to answer the Question: What are Nephilim, fallen angels, Demons or something else?
NephilimasderivedfromtheHebrewword פלאPelewhichmeanswondrous. The traditional Hebrew view is that the “rapha,” meaning, interchangeably, “irrevocably dead,” “evil spirits,” “demons,” and Giants are the spirits of the half-angelic, half human offspring called the Nephilim.
They are mentioned in Numbers 13:32–33, in a description of the inhabitants of Hebron:
So they gave out to the sons of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land, through which we have gone, in spying it out, is a land that devours its inhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size. There also we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.
There are four common views regarding the identity of the Nephilim.
They were the hybrid offspring of fallen angels and human women. They were the offspring of descendants of Seth with those of Cain.
Webster’s 1913 Dictionary defines the word simply as “Giant.” Thus, any especially tall, powerful, large, or mighty man would be described in ancient times as Nephilim. Nephilim may simply mean “giant,” champion, or strong man.
They are not historical figures and are ancient imagery with questionable meaning.
The Targum Jonathan was read as a verse-by-verse translation alternatively with the Hebrew verses in the synagogue, states that the Nephilim were given this name because they were descended from fallen angels (Watchers).
The New American Bible commentary draws a parallel to the Epistle of Jude and the statements set forth in Genesis, suggesting that the Epistle refers implicitly to the paternity of Nephilim as heavenly beings that came to earth and had sexual intercourse with women.
The footnotes of the Jerusalem Bible suggest that the Biblical author intended the Nephilim to be an “anecdote of a superhuman race”.
Genesis 6:4 implies that the Nephilim have inhabited the earth in at least two different time periods, in antediluvian times “and afterward.” If the Nephilim were supernatural beings themselves, or at least the progeny of supernatural beings, it is possible that the “giants of Canaan” in Book of Numbers 13:33 were the direct descendants of the antediluvian Nephilim, or were fathered by the same supernatural parents.
In Aramaic culture, the term Nephila specifically referred to the constellation of Orion, and thus Nephilim to Orion’s semi-divine descendants (Anakim from Anak); the implication being that this also is the origin of the Biblical Nephilim.
and one third of the angelic host joined his rebellion and dissention from Heaven with him. So, Yahuah prepared Hell for the devil and his angels, according to Matthew 25:41
“Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.’” Yahusha, by using the possessive word his makes it clear that these angels belong to Satan.
Revelation 12:7-9 describes an end times angelic battle between Michael and “his angels” and the devil and “his angels.”
When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of Yahuah (Watchers) saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. Then Yahuah said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years.” Genesis 6:1-4
The first verses of Genesis 6 are transition verses. On the one hand, they wrap up the
pre-Flood history of the earlier chapters, showing the state of degeneration that the human race had fallen. On the other hand, they prepare for the story of Noah and the Flood that follows; it was because of this degeneration that the Flood came.
The passage tells us that “When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of Yahuah saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose” Genesis 6:1-2.
The thing that makes these verses so interesting is that three New Testament passages seem to refer to them: 1 Peter 3:18-22; 2 Peter 2:4, 5; and Jude 6, 7.
These passages say in part: “Yahusha died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to Yahuah. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison who disobeyed long ago when Yahuah waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built” 1 Peter 3:18-20; “For if Yahuah did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others” 2 Peter 2:4, 5; and “the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their own home-these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day” Jude 6.
Some reject the idea that the demons are the fallen angels due to the fact that Jude 6 declares the angels who sinned to be “bound with everlasting chains.” However, it is clear that not all of the angels who sinned are “bound,” as Satan is still free 1 Peter 5:8.
Why would Yahuah imprison the rest of the fallen angels, but allow the leader of the rebellion to remain free? It seems that Jude 6 is referring to Yahuah confining the fallen angels (The Watchers) who rebelled in an additional way, likely the “sons of Yahuah” incident in Genesis 6.
The most common alternate explanation for the origin of the demons is that when the Nephilim of Genesis 6 were destroyed in the Flood, their disembodied souls became the demons. While Scripture as we know it today does not specifically say what happened to the souls of the Nephilim when they were killed, so some conclude that it is unlikely that Yahuah would destroy the Nephilim in the Flood only to allow their souls to cause even greater evil as the demons. So they feel the best explanation for the origin of the demons is that they are the fallen angels, the angels who rebelled against
Yahuah with Satan.
So, the question is who were the Nephilim? The heart of the matter lies in the ancient accounts of the Nephilim and their offspring, who and what they really were, what they did, where they are now, what their agenda is, and so on.
The lost books of Enoch explain that demons as disembodied Evil spirits and are not fallen angels (angels who rebelled against Yahuah and were kicked out of heaven). Demons (Evil spirits) are the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim/Raphaim/Anunnaki, hybrids of the fallen angels (Watchers) mixed with the seed of men
In the Books of Enoch he discusses fallen angels and demons.
ENOCH CHAPTER XV
1. And He (Yahuah) answered and said to me, and I heard His voice: ‘Fear not, Enoch, thou righteous man and scribe of righteousness: approach hither and hear my voice. 2. And go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent thee to intercede
for them: “You should intercede” for men, and not men for you: 3. Wherefore have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men and taken to yourselves wives, and done like the children of earth, and begotten giants (as your) sons? 4. And though ye were holy, spiritual, living the eternal life, you have defiled yourselves with the blood of women, and have begotten (children) with the blood of flesh, and, as the children of men, have lusted after flesh and blood as those also do who die and perish. 5. Therefore have I given them wives also that they might impregnate them, and beget children by them, that thus nothing might be wanting to them on earth. 6. But you were formerly spiritual, living the eternal life and immortal for all generations of the world. 7. And therefore I have not appointed wives for you; for as for the spiritual ones of the heaven, in heaven is their dwelling. 8. And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. 9. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men, and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. 10. As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of
the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling. 11. And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.
ENOCH CHAPTER XVI
1. From the days of the slaughter and destruction and death of the giants, from the souls of whose flesh the spirits, having gone forth, shall destroy without incurring judgment thus shall they destroy until the day of the consummation, the great judgment in which the age shall be consummated, over the Watchers and the godless, yea, shall be wholly consummated.”
2. And now as to the Watchers who have sent thee to intercede for them, who had been before time in heaven, (say to them): “You have been in heaven, but all the mysteries had not yet been revealed to you, and you knew worthless ones, and these in the hardness of your hearts you have made known to the women, and through these mysteries women and men work much evil on earth.”
Why did the early church (Catholic) suppress the Book of Enoch? After all, there are various references to Enoch throughout the Old and New Testament, in fact, Enoch never died but was carried up to heaven in a Chariot and will return as one of the two witnesses of Revelation 11 during the tribulation period.
The book of Enoch used in conjunction with the Book of Jude and Revelation bear witness to the conclusion that Demons are actually the Evil Spirit of the Nephilims, as do the original Old Testament actual mention the Nephilim, Anakim (Anunna/Anunnaki), Rephaim, and Rapha, along with others descended from Nephilim. In fact, the traditional Hebrew view is that the “rapha,” meaning, interchangeably, “irrevocably dead,” “evil spirits,” “demons,” and GIANTS, are the spirits of the halfangelic Nephilim offspring that were killed in the great cataclysm we remember as the Flood.
This is not a tall tale, but a truth of which Yahusha and his disciples were aware. This is why they quoted from the book of Enoch.
The story can also be found in the books of Jasher, Jubilees, and the recently-found Dead Sea Scroll, the Book of Giants. Angels have bodies as they can take a variety of forms, as well (“for Satan can appear even as an angel of light,” etc.).
There were two angelic rebellions, the first being the Satan rebellion that most are familiar with; this is the source of what Paul calls, in the sixth chapter of Ephesians, “Spirit wickedness in high places.” This is why Yahusha calls Satan “the prince of the powers of the air.”
The second rebellion came much, much later, and is well known in Hebrew esoteric tradition. In fact, much of this knowledge is still intact in the Hebrew tradition. Many books which were originally in Scripture, the books of Enoch, Jasher, Jubilees, and so on contain the whole story of the fallen angels who rebelled in order to mate with human women. These beings were called the Nephilim, literally “those who came/fell down.”
A recent dead-sea scroll find and translation, “the Book of Giants,” also contains this story in great detail. Before you question the validity of the non-canonical books I mention, keep in mind that not only were they part of the original Old Testament, but many of them particularly Enoch were quoted from by the Apostles in the New Testament. Quotes from the book of Enoch can found in the books of Jude, Revelation, and several other places. The book of Enoch pre-dated the time of Yahusha by around 300 years. In the Old Testament, Genesis tells us that “the sons of Yahuah looked upon the daughters of men and found them fair, and took of them wives as they chose.” The actual translation of this passage reads something like this: “The Watchers came and took human wives for themselves, as many as they wanted. Their children were the Nephilim of old, the giants.”
The books of Jasher, Jubilees, Enoch, and others contain the complete story of what happened in the antediluvian (pre-flood) world. The Watchers set themselves up as pagan “gods” to be worshiped, and their hybrid, genetically monstrous sons as “demigod” kings over the rest of humanity. These offspring were also called Nephilim, and they were brutal, cruel, occultic and cannibalistic giants who treated ordinary human beings with contempt. There were 300 original “Watchers” above the Earth who rebelled and their leader was named Semyaza. Through corrupt angelic knowledge, the pre-flood world was corrupted.
The book of Enoch says that the Watchers and the daughter of men “sinned against all flesh,” creating hybrid creatures which were part human, part beast, part fowl (or bird). Sound familiar? The 300 fallen “watchers,” whose original job had been to protect humanity and the Earth, were utterly depraved. They taught mankind the arts of witchcraft, sorcery, drug abuse, and war. The gene-pool of the human race was tainted as well, almost beyond recovery. When you read the story of Noah and his family, it should be understood that he was not only selected to survive because of the quality of
his character; Genesis states that, unlike the majority of the rest of humanity, Noah was “found perfect in all his generations.”
In other words, he and his family were untainted by the fallen Watcher and Nephilim bloodline, which Yahuah had cursed to eternal damnation (in the Hebrew Old Testament, the word “rapha” means “the damned,” the “eternally dead,” “demon,” “ghost,” and giant, i.e., the spirit of one of the Nephilim.
After the flood, when the Nephilim offspring and hybrid mutations were physically destroyed not spiritually, the 300 former “watchers” were confined inside the Earth, in a prison from which they can not escape. These are those who are referred to by Paul in Ephesians 6 as “the rulers of the spiritual darkness of this world.” Although imprisoned, they are still very powerful and can influence world events, particularly through their offspring’s evil spirits formally known as the Nephilim. Jude refers to the Watchers, quoting directly from the book of Enoch, when he says “the angels (Watchers) who are chained in eternal darkness, awaiting the judgment of the great day.” This is not a reference to Satan and his angels, who still “wage war in heaven.” The more one learns about the ancient knowledge and traditions, the more it is seen that a spiritual yet physical and galactic war is behind all the myths, legends, religions and traditions of our world.
Demons are real. Their activity accounts for many of the things that are happening today. Demons are spirit beings with the characteristics of personality. Some are stronger than others, but all of them are totally corrupt and evil in nature. They never do any good. Any apparent benefit obtained through them via occultism is always just something to gain trust so they can do you and others far greater harm in the future. They are unsatisfied beings who desire to use and abuse you. They don’t feel satisfied without a body to inhabit and through which to express their evil natures. Yahuah, on the other hand, is the source of goodness and life and who desires to give of Himself to you, and see you grow up to become like Yahusha Himself.
Don’t allow demons to get the upper hand in your life. Let us do all we can to destroy their influence by drawing near to Yahuah and letting Yahuah fill us and show us the way It is also believed that demons torment people during their life, like the case of Job or through possession, or simply showing themselves before persons to frighten them, or by provoking visions that could induce people to sin or to be afraid. (Matthew 17:15- 16)
Demons are also believed to try to make people abandon the faith, commit heresy or apostasy, remain or turn themselves Pagan or venerate “idols”, and gain the highest number of “Satan’s” or adversaries of Yahuah. (Ephesians 6:12)
In the Book of Luke, it is stated that demons walk “waterless places”, and finding no rest return to their previous home.
It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” Revelations 9:14
