VOODOOISM SPIRITUALITY

VOODOOISM

voodooism spiritual beings loavoodooism spiritual beings

Vodou or VOODOOISM SPIRITUALITY is primarily practiced in Haiti, New Orleans, and other locations within the Caribbean. There is great variation within Voodoo beliefs and practices. Many Vodou practitioners also consider themselves Catholics. Voodooism Spirituality involves spiritual beings.

As well as being the priest or priestess, the houngan acts as confessor, confidential and financial advisor, prophet and healer for the people in the community. But the houngan is more a folk healer with a considerable knowledge of herbal remedies who treats minor illnesses. While selling love potions and protective charms, including small bags to be worn for protection or for good luck, may be a lucrative side business for a priest or priestess, the primary occupation is still as a spiritual leader of his community. Voodooists especially places value on the strength of community for support.

Loa or Spiritual Beings

The spirits of death, The Guédé are really an enormous group of the loa who are the spirits of formerly living people. He is the one who controls the passage between life and death. In ritual, he is often offered black goats or chickens. The most frequently performed ritual in Voodoo is one that invokes a particular loa (supernatural beings) to offer food to him and seek his presence on earth.

The most important components of a human body, however, are the two parts of the soul, the ti-bon-ange (‘little good angel’) and the gros-bon-ange (‘great good angel’). The gros-bon-age keeps the body alive, and after death, it returns to the reservoir of energy in the cosmos. Without the gros-bon-ange a person loses his/ her life-force. The ti-bon-ange makes up the half of a person’s soul and it is the source of a person’s personality. Furthermore, it is responsible for determining an individual’s characteristics, personality and will.

In Voodoo belief, death is not seen as the end of life, but as a change. The soul – the gros-bon-ange and the ti-bon-ange – endures after death in a different form. The gros-bon-ange returns to the high solar regions where it joins the other loa (supernatural being) and is itself transformed into a loa. Approximately a year after the death, the houngan (priest) performs a ritual, to ensure that the ti-bon-ange is put to rest. This ritual is very important because otherwise the ti-bon-ange may wonder the earth and bring illness and disaster on others.

A Distinctive Human Soul

 A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body. Human beings alone are created in the image and likeness of God; and therefore, possess rational and spiritual souls: a human person is a body/soul composite.

Human Soul Sikhism

Why is this Extremely Dangerous?

Voodoo believers must invoke spells to pacify angry spirits.  The dark side of voodoo is used by participants to summon evil spirits and cast hexing spells upon adversaries. “Voodoo” has become part of modern folklore as something evil that can hurt us. There are terrifying stories about people who were affected by curses that had been placed upon them

In Voodooism, death is a transition to the invisible world, so our predecessors are still with us in spirit. They watch over and inspire us. Divinity is found in the act of ritual itself, in chanting and drumming and dancing to call the immortal spirits down from the cosmic plane where they live that infuses the practitioners with divine power.

Voodoo doesn’t pray to a Personal GOD. Why?

The “great good God,” although loving, is distant, and somewhat above individual human concerns.

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

The unproved assumption of this very common mountain analogy is that the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like “the mouse’s search for the cat”.

Taoism

Christianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up from special spirits into the nostrils of a waiting God, but like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue the fallen. 

Taoism

The Word of God: came to us from the Bible

In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth.”                                                                                                               Genesis 1:1

“He made from one blood all nations who live on the earth. He set the times and places where they should live. They were to look for God. Then they might feel after Him and find Him because He is not far from each one of us. It is in Him that we live and move and keep on living.”                                                                                       Acts 17:26-28

 “The heavens are telling of the greatness of God and the great open spaces above show the work of His hands.”                   Psalm 19:1

”Lord, You have been the place of comfort for all people of all time. Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, forever and ever, You are God.”      Psalm 90:1, 2

 

Life after Death

Are all religions are the same, deep down?

By Catholic standards, the religions of the world can be ranked by how much truth they teach.

  • Catholicism is first, with Orthodoxy equal except for the one issue of papal authority.
  • Then comes Protestantism and any “separated brethren” who keep the Christian essentials as found in sola scriptura (Latin: by Scripture alone) is a theological doctrine which holds that the Christian Scriptures are the sole infallible rule of faith and practice.
  • Third comes traditional Judaism, which worships the same God but not via Christ.
  • Fourth is Islam: the greatest of the theistic heresies.
  • Fifth, Hinduism: a mystical pantheism;
  • Sixth, Buddhism: pantheism without a theos (God);
  • Seventh, Christian Cults: Mormonism or Later Day Saints, Jehovah’s Witnesses; Voodooism
  • Eighth, modern Judaism, Unitarianism, Unification Church, whose members are often called “Moonies”, Confucianism, Falun Gong, Taoism, New Age, Modernism, Christian Science, Scientology and secular humanism, none of which have either mysticism or supernatural religion but only ethics;
  • Ninth, idolatry connotes the worship of something or someone other than God as if it were God.; and
  • Tenth, Satanism and Wicca contacting and convening with Satan as a supernatural being or force worthy of connection. They claim there is power here but it comes from the wrong source: BE WARNED!

HEALING CANCER ASSURED

 Do you believe God can HEAL cancer?

CANCER HEALED

Almost one in every two Canadians is expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and one in four Canadians will die from the disease, a new report by the Canadian Cancer Society predicts.. Currently, every year we’re seeing an increase in the number of cancer cases  About 90 per cent of all the cancers that we expect to be diagnosed in 2017 will be among Canadians 50 years of age and older.”

Still, four cancers — prostate, breast, lung and colon-rectal continue to top the list of the most common malignancies, which together are expected to account for more than half the cancer diagnoses in 2017. 

Survival rates for some cancers have improved dramatically over time: overall, 60 per cent of Canadians diagnosed and treated for cancer will survive five years or longer. These statistics probably hold true for United States.

GOD’S POWER

By His Stripes we are healed

To have faith is, to use the current jargon, to live outside of the box, risking, venturing, believing the impossible. Sometimes, the power of faith is manifested in spectacular and immediately obvious ways.  

FAITH HEALING

There is a long tradition, stretching back to Jesus Himself and including many of the saints, of faith healing.

When someone consciously and confidently opens himself to God, acting as a kind of conduit, the divine energy can flow.

 

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ appeared to this simple nun, Sister Faustina, bringing a wonderful message of Mercy:

“In whatever state the soul may be, it ought to pray … for every single grace comes to the soul through prayer.”                                                                                                       Diary 146   From the Diary of St. Faustina

“I see that God never tries us beyond what we are able to suffer. Oh, I fear nothing; if God sends such great suffering to a soul. He upholds it with an even greater grace, although we are not aware of it. One act of trust at such moments gives greater glory to God than whole hours passed in prayer filled with consolations.”                                                                                                                                          Diary 1182

“Ask and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.”                                                                                     Matthew 7:7

The Lord’s statement couldn’t be any clearer – if we ask we will receive. Note that there is no disclaimer that cancer or “impossible” situations are not included. While there is no guarantee that we’ll always receive a physical healing, we can rest assured that our prayers will be answered in the best possible way “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Matthew 7:9-11     We will receive EXACTLY what we need!

Some have observed that their illness was a “wake-up call”. Some have said that their lives only really began when they were diagnosed. The experience of illness can be a call for a genuinely religious life: the essence of which is a return to God It is the purpose of our lives. In the end our healing becomes a return to love.

No matter how hopeless a situation looks, ALWAYS pray about it! If you don’t ask, you may not receive! God’s power is greater than any problem we could encounter. If you’re having difficulty believing that the Lord can work miracles in your life, say “I believe; help my unbelief!”                                                                                                       Mark 9:24

Good health can be defined as inner peace. A spiritual, holistic notion of healing includes treatment not only of the body but of the mind, and spirit. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.  A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment.

EVIL SPIRIT DELIVERANCE

LIGHT SHINING DELIVERANCE Deliverance of EVIL SPIRITS

Evil spirits of “sorcery or divination” were evident in the Old Testament: evil spirits are real in the New Testament but God has anointed us with new powers of deliverance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This is a Précis: YOUR LIGHT SHINES IN MY DARKNESS      By Rev. Joseph Kane, OM


Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

THE WORKS OF GOD AND THE WORKS OF SATAN

Satan dangles a brief pleasure before the victim in order to visit permanent grief on him or her. God asks of us a moment of suffering with the firm promise of an eternal reward.

Satan tempts us to sin saying it will do no harm, then tortures the person when he yields, with the lie that the harm is irreparable and the sin unforgiveable. God warns us beforehand that sin harms us, but offers us the bright hope of forgiveness and renewal.

OCCULT PRACTICES

deliverance evil spirits

By searching for forbidden knowledge, one unwittingly opens the door to one’s mind to an evil spirit. But how can God permit this? He does not permit this. The Bible is very clear on this point:

When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God.                 Deuteronomy 18:9-15

Remember what the devil said to Eve: “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”                                                                      Genesis 3:4-5                      

The occultists always attract their victims with false promises: the lie. You will have power. We will inform you of your beloved deceased. The spirits will obey you.

Yet, the one who pretends to control the spirits sooner or later is controlled by them. How? They are told that obeying increases the channel of influence. Heavier things are asked and the slavery grows.

Have you observed anyone who is dabbling in any form of occult? Have you noticed that they actually lack joy — even nervous and fearful. You can actually recognize the signs of guilt, anger and resentment.

One person who had been a primitive pagan before being a Christian was asked what it was like: “It was living in darkness. The power of the witch doctor created an environment of fear, suspicion and murder.”

This form of slavery can be broken with a prayer of deliverance, where the person rejects the pact made and turns the area over to Jesus. In the Name of Jesus, the bonds are broken and revoked. The command to the spirits is to leave in the Name of Jesus and to go to the feet of Jesus without bothering anyone. The one who is delivered will feel a noticeable immediate feeling of peace.

THE NEW AGE

Satan deceives us into thinking we can possess powers on our own and control spirits, people and events. Ironically, those who want to control end up being controlled. Continue reading EVIL SPIRIT DELIVERANCE

DEPRESSING FEELINGS

Explain Depressing Feelings

DEPRESSING FEELINGS
DEPRESSING FEELINGS

How do you explain depressing feelings? Have you ever felt that the world is full of deception – nothing and no one should be trusted. Such notions, arises from disillusionment, distrust of one’s fellow beings, unhappiness and eventually, despair. Life has suddenly and devastatingly become devoid of meaning; we arrive at a time of life-threatening crisis. Meaning and purpose for life cannot be found. Where and to whom can one turn? Who can one trust to find the right answers?
We seem to be ‘looking through a glass darkly’ — looking at what was going on around us as if we were a detached observer – being there and involved but also feeling that somehow we weren’t really present.
We cry more than any normal person should; we don’t care to eat, cook, or clean, we don’t care to see our friends. We can’t focus at work, or carry out our daily responsibilities at home. When we step back and think about it, we wonder, is there a point to being alive? 
It’s a frightening thought when we realize we’ve just admitted to ourselves there could be no reason to be here. There is a difference between being sad, and being sad for no reason. A sadness deep in your bones that does not want to go away after time and effort. It’s not something anyone wants to readily admit.

depression sad
We practice making lists on why our life is something to be envious of, but that doesn’t help. It makes one hate oneself more for being sad when one has it so good. Then you say to yourself that you are a failure…and it spirals from there. It’s awful. It’s exhausting. It’s black.

People brush you off by telling me you that you need, “exercise and a combination of certain vitamins,” or, “think of the starving children in Africa without clean water to drink.”

So you realize that you need help. You  struggle with showing any signs of weakness, but asking for help is not something you can easily do. You are not sure there is anything any one person could do or say; you suppose this is a dark valley ; you have to go at it alone. You can only hope you make it out the other side.

You are afraid that you will spend your  life chasing happiness. But at times, you wonder if you are just running.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

Deliverance Is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall?

 DELIVERANCE AND EXORCISM 

Exorcism is exercised in case of possession, while deliverance deals with the influences that are not full possession. There are very few cases of possession as compared to ever pervading influence of different kinds of evil spirits affecting many people.

THE DELIVERANCE

“The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the Lord your God has not permitted you to do so. The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.”                                                           Deuteronomy 18:9-15 Continue reading DELIVERANCE from DEPRESSING FEELINGS ASSURED
