    John, the possession of humans by evil spirits is very real. Even when looking at examples of this in the Bible, where Jesus dealt with them (e.g. Luke 4:33-36; Mark 9:20-27; Matthew 17:14-18; etc.) we know that this demonic activity was very much evident in those days as it is in ours. As Mishael has warned, that fooling around with occultic practices, even laying open our minds by use of drugs or pursuit of demonic religions, makes one highly susceptible to demonic possession, or oppression.

    My personal experience of one such occasion was when sharing in a Bible study in another country. My passage was actually on 1 Peter chapter 3, sharing with families in that respect. So, it was a study not essentially on the Cross or victory over Satan, etc., yet a lady in our midst appeared overcome with heaviness (sadness on her face) & later began to shake a little & then uncontrollably. I thought it weird given the passage of Scripture being looked at, but had later come to realize that when God's powerful Word is opened & read, then the spirits are also troubled. Indeed, "the devils (i.e. demons) believe & tremble" (Js 2:19). That woman wasn't shaking because of an affliction or being moved by my teaching: those which possessed her were agitated at the reading of God's Word. The end of that, was that my indigenous brother took charge & dispatched that evil spirit from out of her. She fell onto the bench she was sitting on & later recovered smiling & joining us in sweet fellowship, being freed from her torment. After some days, we visited her to see how she & her family were doing: and PTL they were all overjoyed in her release & being normal & useful in the home.

    I just share the above to give you a personal witness of such things that go on all the time. Evil forces surround us, many succumb in different ways, but to the child of the Living God, he walks on with joy & confidence, knowing that "greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world (Js 4:4).

    Yep. People in the Occult, Reading Horoscopes. Tarot Cards. Fortune Tellers at the circus or phone psychics. Pornography. Sorcery is the practice of doing drugs, dope, alcohol; buying Wiccan love potions or other injectable products; strong belief in Halloween type magic.

    Then there's the full on satanists: with their book of shadows. It ain't good. There's thousands of ways to part human beings with their cash. There are levels in satan that can do things to people who opened the door for them to come in.

    There are wicked human spirits: people who give use of their spiritual bodies, so the demon can murder. Satan owns their souls.

    If a person has not received Jesus Christ to be their Savior; been born again and received the Holy Spirit... they have no protection from the demonic realm. Nothing but the Holy Blood of Jesus Christ can save us; protect us; protect the family; protect those that we love.

    I'm not a deliverance minister but I've survived an attack. The Blood of Jesus is more powerful than you may know. Angels (big ones) are real. Everything the Bible teaches about this is absolutely Real.

    We already are able to see a demonically driven crowd on tv, destroying everything in their path. Steal, Kill, Destroy, Violence, hatred. It was the same kind of crowd that screamed for Jesus to be Crucified!!

    Barabas was a cold blooded killer and that is who got to go home that day.

    The Good News is that Satan thought he was finally going to see the Son of God die on a Roman Cross! He exulted in every moment of Jesus's pain and then His death. He even had the Romans post a detail of guards outside the Tomb. Satan was just about to go to a party when the stone rolled away! Jesus stepped out and smiled.

    How much does Satan hate people? Lots.

    Don't dabble in the black practices. Get saved. Idols are doorways. Get rid of it.

    Yes it is true. As a human being, you are a spirit, you have a soul (your mind, will and emotions) and you live in your physical body. What gives you and I thr right to interact here, is the physical body. Look at the physical body as an earth suit just like staying on the moon needs wearing a suit to survive here.

    Demonic powers also want to have a way to have influence on this earth. That is the reason why the demons try so much to look for a physical body to work through. So yeah, demons can and do try to possess physical bodies.

    That is why you and I must be full of God.

    I was lead to stop what I was doing and to respond again, to provide Biblical references. Out of many the following scriptures stood out to me:

    1 Timothy 4:1

    Matthew 17:18

    James 4:7

    Ephesians 6:10-18

    Luke 4:33-36

    1
    Peter 5:8

    God Bless!

    I am not a biblical scholar and can not point to the specific scriptures, my apologies.(Those who can will comment.) But simply, yes, 100%. It is not necessarily the "Hollywood version" either. This is why it is so important for us to follow the word of God. His law. Many things people believe to be normal culture, today, open the doors. Drug usage, the New Age spiritual movement, music, movies, sex addiction and perversion, sin etc. All stemming from SIN. The Bible does offer many accounts. Possession will change a person or cause them to worsen in many ways that are, at times, somewhat easy to "see." Evil spirits want to turn us away from God and his Truth. If you are asking in regards to someone in specific please place a prayer request, here on KJV, for them so that we may pray for them. Prayer is powerful. The good news is God is THE most powerful and has already overcome Satan. It is God that has the authority and power to remove and restore! I sincerely apologize for being vague in regards to scripture and I hope this helps you. God Bless!

    You did good!

    Sometimes I feel like a twisted voice crying out in the wilderness. In the prayer request room I saw that people are being oppressed from lack of knowledge. I asked the Lord what I was to do.

    For so long, people ask why God is letting all the bad things happen. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. One of satans names: Destroyer.

    I'm praying for people to get sick of watching dance shows, talent shows, super strength shows: to hate the superficial poison of people who only love the money. To me it looks like a spider that drains its victims dry. My heart aches for people always watching other people on YouTube. Even little children. I'm learning war. They will be Left Behind and I can't bear that thought.

    Cling to Jesus. Worship His Holiness.

    Did you know? The air of heaven is Faith.

    Leviticus 20:13-21 speaks of some of God's commands to the children of Israel, in the matter of homosexuality, incest & bestiality. God is really saying, that He has not made mankind to behave like this, they do it of their own volition & because of inherent sin in them. His penalty for such behaviour was death, as it was gross wickedness, akin to wilful murder, witchcraft, etc. Fortunately for us, post Crucifixion, that the door of God's Mercy is still open & forgiveness is still available for any caught up in this debauchery. Sadly, the World looks at these relationships as 'Alternative lifestyles', but God clearly says it is Sin & will be judged severely.

    Romans 1:21-23 New Living Translation (NLT)

    21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn't worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.

    the sacrifice before Christ was commanded by the Lord , was not mans law num:15, God instructed Moses on how it should be done, notice they all had to be unblemished as we are to come to him with a pure heart with our repentance
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    You are right in saying sacrifices did end with Christs death on the cross for Christians. But why did the Jews quit sacrificing?
  • Vanessa - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    I have been told when the Romans destroyed the temple in about 70ad, they have no proper place to preform it anymore, they only could offer it where God allowed it.
  • Vanessa on Leviticus 1
    sacrifice ended with Christ he was the unblemished lamb of God, he came not to do away with the law but to fulfill it by going to the cross, He died for all our sins, but he did not die for us to continue in sin thinking we are cleansed. Jesus taught the way and he was the word. So the old passed away we no longer keep the old traditions,same as we excepting Christ the old passes away
  • BSP on Leviticus 1
    Verse 3~Our sacrifices or offerings to Jehovah God must be holy and acceptable. We want to give him our best.
  • Tara L on Leviticus 1
    @Insight777 It's not that it was too harsh a punishment, death is the wage of all sin. But God is the one who judges and can also forgive those who repent, and part of the point of that story were that every one of the people there condemning her were just as guilty and in need of forgiveness as she was.
  • Rocky on Leviticus 1
    If Christ was not in the commentary it would be hard to understand. The reason I say that is today the animal sacrifice no longer exist.
  • Insight777 on Leviticus 1
    Jesus did not come to remove laws that are necessary for society like the commandments but Mosaic laws that determine what is sin and what punishment is required, he did come to change. An example Jesus used was death for adultery. He did not say it was not a sin but that death was to harsh a punishment. He fulfills law with temperance. Judging with equity, fairness which Mosaic law does not.
  • Bruce on Leviticus 1
    insight:do you Know The Son of God paid for "Your Salvation"? You must surely know most of Your post are not right. Verse 1: LORD: THE SELF EXISTENT or ETERNAL ONE who is CALLED: JEHOVAH./ Life here is very very, compared to Eternity----Is He Tugging on Your Heart? Time of The End---To The Beginning of---Eternity---Starts in a Twinkling of The Eye.
  • A disciple on Leviticus 1
    "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled." The Law given through Moses and the Prophets, was for our instruction unto the character of God, and the testimony of Christ, to write that Law in our hearts.
  • Insight777 on Leviticus 1
    The word Lord is used because God did not require animal sacrifices. It was the Lord of the land laws that required it. The Mosaic laws (not the 10 commandments) that Jesus was sent to earth to remove. They are man made laws not from God. Men kill innocent animals making them experience pain and die so they can feel their cruelty, evil sin is acceptable to God. God hates it, a pagan sinful act.
  • Kamryn on Leviticus 1
    Love god
  • A disciple on Leviticus 1
    The religious practice of offering sacrifice to God goes back to Abel. It was the part that made him accepted to God when he came to present himself and give account of himself before the LORD. It was for bringing to remembrance the Word which God spoke from the beginning about the Anointed Saviour to come into the world, to undo the works of the devil, and the sin in man. It was rejected by Cain.
  • Irene123 on Leviticus 1
    I am going to use a quote here,"Lev. is the bk. that is the gateway to the heart of God. The key message is holiness. This is conveyed over 87 times here, Leviticus 10:10; 19:2. The great mission of Lev. is to mortal men that behind all the laws, commandments of God stands a HOLY and UNDEFILED God. We, therefore, can trust His word in full assurance." From "The Feasts of Jehovah in Prophecy" - P. Dugas

    God here wanted his people to be clean
  • Terri Toldson on Leviticus 1
    It's been a blessing
  • Curtis Lee Smith on Leviticus 1
    It's how to sacrfice offering to God
  • Sonya on Leviticus 1
    The burnt offering is the example of giving our life totally to God. The sacrifice is for forgiveness of our sins by God. Those are totally different from oNE another. But , directly connected to each other. In Christian life , first we have to accept the sacrifice of our sin by Jesus Christ killed on Cross for us. Then , with offering our lives in a daily order, we live for God.
  • Dwayne on Leviticus 1
    Leviticus is very helpful in giving us YAHs laws and statues on how to live morally and godly
