Wisdom has entered this nation, says the Lord! Many will understand what it means to fear Me and they will gain My knowledge. I will straighten the crooked financial paths for My people and provide all that is needed to further My Kingdom message! I will break through the resistance against Me in the land! My Name will reappear and be talked about! I will demonstrate that all I prophesy through My servants will come true! I am the Lord; that is My name! I will not give My glory to anyone else, says the Lord!

Jesus said: “Not everyone who calls out to Me, Lord! Lord! will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to Me, Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name. But I will reply, I never knew you. Get away from Me, you who break God’s laws.” Matthew 7:21-23 NLT
This passage also applies to many of the well-known Televangelists, pastors, prophets, and ministers who all preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, prophesying in His name, casting out demons in His name, and performing many miracles in His name. And yet all these ministers are not God’s true chosen followers of Jesus Christ, and will not enter heaven! These ministers are like what the Bible describes them; false apostles of Christ, deceitful workers who disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. (See 2. Corinthians 11:13-15) Or, they are false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. (See Matthew 7:15)
The Scriptures warn us not to believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit, but we must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world! (See 1. John 4:1)
The way we identify and test these ministers whether they are good or evil is by their fruit and that is by the way they act, their motivation! (See Matthew 7:16-20)
As I said before, many of these false ministers do preach about Christ, but not with pure motives. They preach with selfish ambition, to make money, make a name for themselves, to control and have power over people, out of jealousy and rivalry. (See Philippians 1:15-17)
A true minister of God is supposed to care for people not for what he or she can get out of it, but because he or she is eager to serve God. And never should a minister of God lord over or control the people assigned to his care, but lead them by his own Christ-like example of pursuing righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness! (1. Peter 5:2-3, 1. Timothy 6:11)

There is a false teaching circulating around this time of year, saying that Christians are supposed to celebrate the holiday feast of Hanukkah, remembering and celebrating God’s miracles.
Hanukkah, or the Festival of Dedication, was a yearly event celebrating the dedication of the Temple after Antiochus IV Epiphanes defiled it in 167 BC. The revolt under the leadership of Judas Maccabeus was the most recent deliverance in the history of the Jews. Hanukkah was not one of the feasts God commanded the Jews to celebrate, but it was popular among the people.
The Bible Scripture used to support that Jesus so-called celebrated Hanukkah, comes from John chapter 10 verses 22 and 23, where it says:
“It was now winter, and Jesus was in Jerusalem at the time of Hanukkah, the Festival of Dedication. He was in the Temple, walking through the section known as Solomon’s Colonnade.” John 10:22-23 NLT
Jesus was not there to celebrate Hanukkah, but was walking around! Jesus was at the Temple for a time debating with the Pharisees, and then He left! (See John 10:24-38)
Therefore, to think that Jesus celebrated Hanukkah can absolutely not be proven scripturally!
And besides this, the Scriptures do say: “Don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for NOT celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths.” Colossians 2:16 NLT

The Bible says: “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against EVIL SPIRITS in the heavenly places!” Ephesians 6:12 NLT
Spirits go by many names; even God and Satan are identified by numerous names and titles in the Bible.
There are two specific evil spirits that I want to address in this study. The first one is called Incubus, which is defined by the dictionary as one that lies on persons in their sleep; one that has sexual intercourse with women while they are sleeping.
The other spirit is named Succubus. This is a demon that assumes female form to have sexual intercourse with men in their sleep.
These two evil spirits are also referred to as “sex demons” or “night demons.” They are a powerful, high-ranking class of demons. These demons are primarily spirits of sexual perversion. Night demons are basically spirits of lust.
We see evidence of this happening in the Bible book of Genesis 6 verse 4, where it says: “In those days, and for some time after, giant Nephilites lived on the earth, for whenever the sons of God had intercourse with women, they gave birth to children who became the heroes and famous warriors of ancient times.”
This means that the “sons of God” were fallen angels, demon spirits who had sex with human women, impregnating them, and causing them to give birth to giants, abnormal people. Incubus and Succubus are the same class of demons that operated in those times, only now they are looking to impregnate people with spiritual perversion and lust.
The Incubus and Succubus spirit manifest itself to the conscious mind and cause it to experience all of the stimulation and physical feelings that take place during intercourse or sexual contact with a physical person. The demons most often reveal themselves to people during the nighttime hours, but can manifest at any time of the day.
These demonic spirits can have such a strong effect on people that they can cause overwhelming sexual urges in the body, so strong that they completely take over the mind. This can happen at any time, but tend to be most common when lying down.
The Incubus and Succubus spirit is also responsible for sex dreams. Those are dreams during which you are engaged in sexual contact or intercourse, or dreams in which your body has a spontaneous orgasm. Another manifestation of Incubus and Succubus is nightmares – realistic, graphic, heart-stopping nightmares that rob you of sleep and make you awake frightened. Many people also claim to actually see spirit bodies that come and subject them to various sexual acts. These spirits are often violent and will attack you by beating, choking, and restraining you.
However, it is important to understand, that not every powerful sexual urge in the body is due to a demonic manifestation. Strong sexual urges can be purely hormonal, or just good old-fashioned arousal at the thought of enjoying intercourse with your spouse. When sexual urges come on suddenly without warning and you simply cannot control them without having an intense battle, that is when you know they are demonic.
A vast amount of Christians are being kept in bondage by the Incubus and Succubus spirits, whose purpose is to impregnate them with fear and in doing so, pervert their faith. The devil knows that fear induces a desire to seek comfort. Sexual activity, especially sexual fantasy and masturbation, bring about a temporary sense of false comfort. Therefore, by inducing fear, these lust demons cause you to be that much more likely to commit sexually perverse acts. People that are afflicted by these spirits will experience a tremendous amount of failure and often feel cursed. Their belief system has simply been perverted.
But Jesus Christ came to set the captives free (see Luke 4:18)! All you have to do is renounce the Incubus and Succubus spirits that have entered into your life and their works.
“Submit yourself to God! Resist the devil, and he will flee from you!” James 4:7 NLT
