Not Given A Spirit of Fear

7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. ~ 2 Timothy 1:7

Anxiety is a crippling disease. It claims you from the inside out. It demands full and complete control over you, your life, and all of your actions. They say the average teenage/young adult has the anxiety levels of a psychiatric patient in the 1950s. Why? What happened in our society that has brought this amount of anxiety upon our young people? I believe it can be summed up in a single word, fear.

The Spirit of Fear has been unleashed upon our generation. Fear of failure, inferiority, rejection, imperfection. Fear is running rampant. Why? Because the love has dwindled. James tells us that the only thing that overcomes fear isn’t faith, it isn’t pride, it isn’t courage, it’s love. Perfect love casts out all fear. The love of God has left our societies.

I don’t mean that God has stopped loving us. This issue isn’t a problem on His end. It’s a problem on our end. Our love for Him has grown cold. Our hearts seek after and desire anything and everything except for Him. We refuse to remain in Him. Why? Because of distractions. Laziness. Rebellion. And apathy. We don’t care because it doesn’t seem that important. Anything and everything is more important than spending time with the LORD. Now is the time to live; tomorrow, we’ll get saved. No. Today is the day of Salvation; tomorrow is promised to no one.

If anxiety is crippling you, you lack the love of God. Your love for Him is being overrun and overpowered by fear. The only way to overcome fear is to face it. Face it with the Word of God. Speak verses that remind you of God’s love for you. Verses that remind you of His goodness. Spend time daily in prayer about your fear. Place it on the altar at His feet and ask Him to intervene. Speak boldly and with all confidence in the power of the Holy Spirit within you to the Spirit of Fear and cast him out. Fear is NOT a feeling. Fear is a person. A person that is no longer welcome in our lives, homes, societies, and nations.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Do Not Adhere To The Spirit of Fear.

Who Is Abaddon? Pt. 2: The Lucifer Connection

In our previous videos, we explained that Satan and Lucifer aren’t the same beings; they’re two separate beings. While Lucifer and Satan are two separate beings, Lucifer and Abaddon are the same being. As stated in part one, Lucifer was the only being thrown into the Bottomless Pit, and Abaddon is the only being that comes out, then they have to be the same being. But this didn’t seem to convince everyone, so join ArieRashelle as she shows us more connections between the two in her video, Who Is Abaddon? Pt. 2: The Lucifer Connection.

Who Is Abaddon?

The Lucifer Connection

12 How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! 13 You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north; 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’ 15 But you are brought down to Sheol, to the far reaches of the pit. 16 Those who see you will stare at you and ponder over you: ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms, 17 who made the world like a desert and overthrew its cities, who did not let his prisoners go home?’ 18 All the kings of the nations lie in glory, each in his own tomb; 19 but you are cast out, away from your grave, like a loathed branch, clothed with the slain, those pierced by the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit, like a dead body trampled underfoot. 20 You will not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land, you have slain your people.

Isaiah 14:12-20

1 And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit. He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft. Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone. And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them. In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, their hair like women’s hair, and their teeth like lions’ teeth; they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. 10 They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails. 11 They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon. 12 The first woe has passed; behold, two woes are still to come.

Revelation 9:1-12

Though Satan and Lucifer have no connections at all and are not the same being, Abaddon and Lucifer are the same being.

Is Krampus Real?

During the Christmas season, we’re used to stories of Santa Claus and his reindeer soaring through the sky on his sleigh to bring presents made by him and his elves for all the good children. Santa has become a staple in our society today, but in the more recent years, a new darker Christmas character has taken the spotlight.

What or Who is Krampus?

Krampus comes from central and Eastern Alpine folklore. Places like Austria, Bavaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Northern Italy, the Autonomous Province of Trento and South Tyrol, Slovakia, and Slovenia. He is a goat-like creature that comes out to punish naughty children.

Biblical Evidence

7 So they shall no more sacrifice their sacrifices to goat demons [śā·ʿîr], after whom they whore. This shall be a statute forever for them throughout their generations.

Leviticus 17:7

14 For the Levites left their common lands and their holdings and came to Judah and Jerusalem, because Jeroboam and his sons cast them out from serving as priests of the Lord, 15 and he appointed his own priests for the high places and for the goat idols [śā·ʿîr] and for the calves that he had made.

Is Shapeshifting In The Bible?

Throughout history, we have had several stories of humans shapeshifting into animals. Many different cultures and religions have legends of humans having spirit-animals that give them a form of supernatural capabilities that can present in a physical manifestation. Even though there are countless stories of these kinds of situations, does this mean that shapeshifting is real? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture for the Truth in her video, Is Shapeshifting In The Bible?

Is Shapeshifting In The Bible?


13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15

These three verses are talking about spiritual transformation, not a physical transformation.

20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body to be like His glorious body, by the power that enables Him even to subject all things to Himself.

Philippians 3:20-21

Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, He has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day—

Jude 1:5-6

Both of these instances are about a physical transformation (shapeshifting) in the Bible.

Call On The LORD

Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, “Behold, the people of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. 10 Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and, if war breaks out, they join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.” 11 Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with heavy burdens. They built for Pharaoh store cities, Pithom and Raamses. 12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad. And the Egyptians were in dread of the people of Israel. 13 So they ruthlessly made the people of Israel work as slaves 14 and made their lives bitter with hard service, in mortar and brick, and in all kinds of work in the field. In all their work they ruthlessly made them work as slaves. 22 Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, “Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.” ~ Exodus 1:8–14, 22

The Spirit of Pharoah attaches itself to the ruling class, and it influences those in power. That is, the ones making the laws and the decisions for the rest of the country. In other words, the elites. It seeks to oppress all who are not of itself. Those who are not of that same spirit.

The problem is, however, those under them, under the elites, are all collateral damage. It’s a very selfish spirit that deals in fear. Matter of fact, fear is the main weapon it uses to control people and have its will done. It’s a “my will be done” spirit. How does it do this? By presenting itself as looking out for the best interest of those it attaches itself to.

Look, the Israelites are too numerous and too powerful. If war breaks out, they will side up with the enemy and fight against us, and we will be conquered. The best thing we can do for you, to keep you safe, is to kill all the baby boys.

Not only does this spirit deal in fear, but this spirit does not know Joseph. In other words, it does not acknowledge Joseph. It only knows or acknowledges the brothers of Joseph, and their prosperity does not escape its notice.

Now please understand that Joseph was not the Christ, but he is a “type of Christ.” And if so, then the brothers of Joseph would be us, the Christians. The Spirit of Pharaoh does not rise up until the brothers of Joseph, who are free to prosper and contribute to society, begin to grow and increase and prosper. Christians have been prospering in the US for many years. And sure enough, the more we prosper, the more the spirit of Pharaoh has taken charge and become more blatant in our society. The only way to overcome this spirit is to cry out to the LORD for deliverance. It wasn’t until the people cried out to the LORD that the people of Israel were sent a deliverer.

Are you seeing the coming oppression? Are you seeing the taskmasters being set up against us? Don’t wait until we’re completely enslaved to cry out to God. Cry out to God now. Call on His name for mercy and deliverance so that He might remember His people and save us before the coming oppression.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Call On The LORD.

The Spirit of Pharaoh

In the Christian world, we talk about different spirits. We talk about the spirit of Python, the spirit of Jezebel, the spirit of antichrist, and so on.

The Spirit of Pharaoh

Pharaoh (King of Egypt) in the Bible

Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, “Behold, the people of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. 10 Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and, if war breaks out, they join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.” 11 Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with heavy burdens. They built for Pharaoh store cities, Pithom and Raamses. 12 But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad. And the Egyptians were in dread of the people of Israel. 13 So they ruthlessly made the people of Israel work as slaves 14 and made their lives bitter with hard service, in mortar and brick, and in all kinds of work in the field. In all their work they ruthlessly made them work as slaves.
15 Then the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other Puah, 16 When you serve as midwife to the Hebrew women and see them on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall kill him, but if it is a daughter, she shall live.” 17 But the midwives feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live. 18 So the king of Egypt called the midwives and said to them, “Why have you done this, and let the male children live?” 19 The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women, for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife comes to them.” 20 So God dealt well with the midwives. And the people multiplied and grew very strong. 21 And because the midwives feared God, he gave them families. 22 Then Pharaoh commanded all his people, “Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall cast into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live.”

Can Participating in Halloween Open Spiritual Doors?

In the Christian world, we often talk about spiritual doors. We say that the doors God has opened for us, no one can shut. We cling to the idea that the good things God has for us no one can take away, but many of us don’t like the idea that we ourselves can take away those good things by our own actions. We don’t like the idea of the possibility of opening evil spiritual doors in our lives by participating in things that aren’t of God. Many Christians believe that the occult is just foolishness. That the Devil is just a toothless lion, but the Truth is he is a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. Therefore, could participating in darkness, no matter how innocent it may look, cause someone to open a spiritual door for the demonic to enter their lives? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he opens our eyes to the dangers of careless actions in his video, Can Participating in Halloween Open Spiritual Doors?

Participating in Halloween Opens Spiritual Doors

What Are Spiritual Doors?

1 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber.
I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.

John 10:1; 9

But I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost, for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.

1 Corinthians 16:8–9

20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.

Revelation 3:20

1. Communication with spirits
2. Agreement with spirits
3. Passageway in from one place to another
4. A transition or an opportunity (either for the person or for the spiritual being – whether that being is good or evil)

Spiritually Opening Doors to Evil

If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is contrary to you, but you must rule over it.

Genesis 4:7

Spiritual doors are opened based on what we participate in. If we participate in the things of God, then the spiritual doors to be with God will be opened. If we participate in the things of evil, then the spiritual doors of evil to be with evil will be opened. Participating in occult practices, such as Halloween, opens spiritual doors to the demonic in your life.

Is The Grim Reaper Real?

Everyone has heard of the Grim Reaper. He’s literally the personification of Death from many mythologies that is said to come to collect his victim’s soul.

Who is the Grim Reaper?

The Personification of Death

The Grim Reaper is Death personified. He comes to collect the souls of his victims and takes them to the afterlife. We see that there are a few instances of the personification of Death, as well as the punishment of this seemingly evil spirit.

And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.

Revelation 6:8

12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. 13 And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. 14 Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second Death, the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:12-14

The Spirit of Life

Is Suicide a Sin?

Every 40 seconds, someone dies from suicide (World Health Organization statistic). Many of these are bible-believing Christians who couldn’t find hope in this world and thought it would be better if they were dead. So many believe that the only way they will ever find peace is if they take their own lives. As a Church, we have failed to address this and find a way to help those who struggle with Anxiety, Depression, and Suicide, which leads us to ask the question: Is suicide a sin? Is there such a thing as a spirit of suicide? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture to find answers to these questions in our video, Is Suicide a Sin?

Numbers 35:11-12
Joshua 20:1-3
Philippians 4:13

Is Suicide a Sin?

The Spirit of Suicide

We believe that suicide is a spirit, as we believe every sin has a spirit behind it. 1 John 4:1 tells us, 4 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” We believe that it is a Spirit of Suicide that plants the seed that someone is worthless, hopeless, doomed, or disgusting, in their head. Therefore, finding relief would begin in the mind. It all starts with changing your thoughts. But how do you do that? You have to make a conscious decision to change your thoughts. Then you fill your mind with scripture to tell you the truth. That you are not worthless. That you are loved. You are beautiful. You are wanted. You are not disgusting. You are a Child of God.
