condemn the mere existence of wine as sinful. Of course anyone with a drinking or drug problem must avoid these substances! Yet, Paul instructed Timothy to ‘drink a little wine for his stomach and frequent infirmities,’ explaining that repentance from the sin of drunkenness was quite different from the perception that, for the sake of holy living, one should reject the moderate and therapeutic use of wine. This proves we must guard against asceticism, which is religious self-denial to earn holiness or merit with God. Asceticism is witchcraft and devoid of any spiritual value, whether it teaches religious abstinence from certain foods, medication, intercourse in marriage, or “a little wine.”
Initiation through Heavy Metal and satanic Rock Music, Song, and Dance
Let us not confuse true praise, song and dance to the God of the Bible with demonic counterfeits! The writer of Ps 149: 150 rejoiced, “Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song… Praise His Name with the dance; sing praises to Him with the tumbrel and harp… Let the saints be joyful in glory; let them sing aloud on their beds… Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet. Praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the tumbrel and dance. Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Praise Him with loud cymbals! Praise Him with clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath, praise the Lord!” The psalmist of Ps. 47:1 added, “Oh, clap your hands, all your peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph!” “Then Miriam… took the timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her with tumbrels and with dances…” (Ex. 15:20.) “Then David and all Israel played music before God with all their might, with singing, on harps, on stringed instruments, on tambourines, on cymbals, and with trumpets,” (1 Chron. 13:8.) “Then David danced before the Lord with all his might…” (2 Sam. 6:14.) David also prayed in Ps. 141:2; 63:3-5, “Let my prayer be set before You as incense. The lifting up of my hands [in surrender, adoration, and thanksgiving] as the evening sacrifice... My lips shall praise You… I will lift up my hands in Your Name… and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips.”
Old Israel’s joyful praise, worship, and dancing before the Lord was carried through to the spiritual body of Christ. Heb. 13:15-16 says, “Let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His Name. But… [also] do good and share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.” [See Rom. 2:28-29; Gal. 3:28.]
No wonder the devil covets humanity’s joyful, spontaneous praise, the lifting up of grateful hands in complete surrender, adoration, and worship, which belong to the Living God alone! Since the fall, Satan has been perverting and redirecting the wonderful gifts of praise, song, and dance away from God to glorify himself. Musical instruments, song, and dance are not entities in themselves, therefore song, dance, and musical instruments can be used either to praise or worship God, or to praise and worship Satan. While not all ‘worldly’ song, dance, and music are demonic, the devil can and does use these God-given practices to initiate unsuspecting and willfully disobedient people into occultism.
It is therefore no surprise that the devil also infiltrated the body of Christ with fake praise and worship songs, which disseminate false doctrine and conform to the world in ways that should make us flee from them. In most modern assemblies, their so-called “spiritual dancing before God” also has nothing to do with the Holy Spirit. Stage-diving, ballet, and tribal dancing simply cannot be used in Godly praise and worship! What Christians might perceive as the ‘anointing of the Holy Spirit’ in song, preaching, etc., is often nothing more than Satan’s kundalini or ‘serpent power.’ Both worldly and Christian musicians who are openly or secretly sold to Satan, plan to infiltrate the minds of their audiences with multitudes of demons, resulting in mass hysteria, rebellion, riots, violence, lust, promiscuity, substance abuse, filthy and disrespectful language, homosexuality, pedophilia, murder and suicide, to name but a few perversions that are hiding behind the smiles and charisma of such iconic singers.
The abuse of the God-given gifts of music, song and dance, is common in virtually all types of initiations. In all occult initiation and in Christianity too, rituals and ceremonies involve chanting and hypnotic music such as continual drumming, which serve the purpose of summoning demons from the spirit world. Humming sounds such as in yoga breathing; shamanic shouting in tongues, non-intelligent repetitive lyrics; spell-bounding dance in the form of constant rocking motions and erratic or rhythmic body shaking. All these methods serve the purpose of emptying the mind of all responsible, controlled thought. Once the minds of trance-dancers, meditating singers and hummers, etc., are completely ‘open,’ demonic control, possession and hypnotic, surreal states of mind are inevitable.
In occultism and modern Christianity, such trances are highly desired. Under the influence of demonic power, trances serve the purpose of manifesting painless fire-walking, bloodless self-mutilation, fortunetelling, (called “prophetic prophecy” in Christianity,) and so on. The Greek philosopher Aristotle correctly believed that the right rhythm, melody, and lyrics has the power to arouse any kind of emotion, thus inducing any state of mind that the singers intend to produce. For instance, engulfed in the electrified atmosphere of a Rock concert; captivated by the deafening rhythm, which shakes the ground underneath their feet, the heavy-metal band Wasp thunders over their arm-waving, spellbound audiences, “The gods you worship are steel, at the altar of Rock ‘n Roll you kneel!”
Hip Hop music is a most dreadful onslaught on the youth, while Blues singer Jimmy Hendrix literally sold his soul to Satan one midnight at a crossroad to gain his hypnotic, rhythmic abilities. Hendrix said, “Music is a spiritual thing of its own. You can hypnotize through it and preach into the subconscious whatever you want to say.”
Occult and Christian Blood-Initiation through Body Piercing, Body Modifications, and Tattoos

Middle photo above: Todd Bentley’s hand display his membership of the satanic Roman Catholic Knights Templar Order, the masonic cross and crown, as illustrated in the image on right. This proves that only Satan can sit behind these corruptions of the human body, which must be the holy temple of the Holy Spirit, (1 Cor. 6:15-20.) All of these witchcraft practices and many more are on the rise in modern and Western societies and in churches.
Tattoos aside, let us not go overboard and see evil in ordinary jewellery and irreligious earring piercing, which have always been acceptable in Old Israel and in Jesus’ Times. Here, we are talking about the desecration of the body. “Modesty” and “decency” are the keys to Godly dressing and the wearing of jewellery, opposed to provocative dressing and the wearing of occult jewellery. Godly people will always focus on the “heart” instead of keeping up with fashion, (1 Tim. 2:9.) However, the numbers of pagans and Christians getting even their whole bodies engraved with occult, masonic, church, “Jesus,” and other signs because “it’s tribal” and signify “blood-brotherhood,” are spreading like wildfire. This blood initiation into the occult makes them an integral part of a particular friendship, group, club, society, or church, but it actually engraves false gods into their flesh to signifying that they wholly and forever belong to them and their satanic orders. This is why, in “blood-in-blood-out,” (murder someone to get in and get murdered if you leave,) or actually “no-way-out” gang membership and other pagan initiations, it’s ‘compulsory.’ Some see it as ‘living art’ – which you will take with you to your grave. Whatever the reason, the engraved, scarred, skewered, and modified bodies, faces, tongues, teeth, lips, mouths, noses, eyebrows, ears, and bodies of these initiates are nauseating because they showcase millions of lives dedicated to Satan. The primitive, pagan jungle is overrunning all our cities, cultures — and even the churches!
Much worse than those in the world, are the masonically initiated, tribally engraved, and skewered Christian preachers, prophets, teachers, and so-called “deliverers” who run, jump, scream, and teach false doctrine in churches. Joyce Meyers and Company openly campaign for Christian tattoos and teach that those who say we must not take tattoos and make cultic cuttings in our flesh, take God’s Word out of context and are legalists. These people allege, “Pagans do this for the dead; we do it for Jesus!” (Lev. 19:28.) Yet, this is not about wearing modest hairstyles, clothes, jewelry, make-up, etcetera, (Rom. 12:1-2.) These “lawless” preachers are decidedly chasing the horrible pagan practices of the world to conform unrepentant people to their ‘acceptable’ form of wild, pagan Christianity, (Mt. 7:21-24.)
One such ‘tribal’ Promise Keeper is Tod Bentley, who allegedly ‘shoots’ demons out of, or actually into people: “Pow! Pow! Pow!” while God’s Word commands that the laying on of hands with sincere prayer and the anointing of ordinary oil in “confession of [personal] sins [one to another] will heal the sick,” (Jam. 5:15-16; Mark 16:16-18.)
Where Scripture says, “God has engraved us in the palm of His hands,” it is merely a symbol that explains how permanent God views His relationship with true believers, (Isa. 49:16.) These teachers are using uncontextual snippets of God’s Word to justify these abominations. Because pagans make these cuttings and tattoos to dedicate them to their dead gods, is not to say we may engrave the living Jesus into our flesh. God forbade us to make cuttings and tattoos in our flesh because it is a dreadful pagan dedication to false gods, (Lev. 19:28.) Why do we need tattoos in any case? We must “go into the world to preach His Gospel” while “not conforming to the world,” (Mt. 28:18-20; Rom. 12:1-2.) Just imagine Jesus and the apostles trying to evangelize the world, covered with tattoos and skewered like pagans, which signify that they are deeply rooted in blood sacrifice, cannibalism, and vampirism! The truth of Scripture commands, “Do not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but rather expose them,” (Eph. 5:11.) All true believers must flee from these money-making, masonic, pagan/Christian preachers, (Rev. 18:4.)
There is something scarily sinister about these strange practices from the jungle — and especially when they become the norm among believers in Christ. These satanic practices are not ‘fun,’ ‘funky,’ ‘hip,’ or ‘innocent.’ They endanger the spiritual lives of believers, because your body and mind must be completely dedicated to God Alone, (1 Cor. 3:16-18.)
Ritual scarring, body modification, and tattooing have always formed intricate parts of age-old, religious initiation rites into ‘manhood’ or ‘womanhood’ – or, in fact, into Satanism. TribaltattooDesign.com wrote, “Three major factors took the practice of tribal tattooing from the realm of art and into the plane of the spiritual, [whence they came, originally, as used in ritual, religious, tribal initiations in the jungle:] Pain, Permanence, and Loss of Life Source (blood.) [These are true marks of human sacrifice to Satan!] This mystical trio elevated the tattoo [and other scarring and body modifications] to a chance to draw people into a relationship with a god, magic powers, or a trance or vision state. Many of the tribes from Borneo believe that tattoos also offer them special qualifications for advantageous occupations upon their arrival [in the hereafter.] Many tribal tattoos are done as proof of the power of certain totem animals [a hierarchy of ancestor ‘animal’ spirits, worshiped as gods,] over the lives of those they chose to guard and bless… Bestowed with a totem animal guardian meant you gain the strengths and abilities of the totem animal, but the tattoo also served as a mysterious link between the animal spirit [a demon] and the bearer of its marks. Different animals provided different [attributes.] Today, animal totem tattoos are wildly popular.. [and are all occult symbols in some way or another.”
Gang related initiations usually call for the gang’s crest to be tattooed on the person’s chest, shoulder or arm, and it often incorporates blood sacrifice, sealed by a rose – as in the crest of the Russian Mafia. (A black rose tattoo signifies death and darkness – actually cursing themselves with untimely death!) National Geographic wrote, “In Africa, scarring is used in tribal initiation as a sign of bravery. Done with razor blades, the painful process starts at puberty and continues into manhood. Each tribe has distinctive tattoo designs, usually on the face, and include black magic symbols to keep away evil spirits” – now that’s a contradiction if I ever heard one!
Dr. Peter Hammond wrote in his book, ‘Body Piercing – Return to Paganism,’ “The response of pagans when they embrace Christ: From Papua New Guinea to the Amazon jungle, pagan tribes engage in body scarification, earrings, nose rings tongue studs, multiple piercing and tattoos, wearing little or no clothing. Once in Christ, they abandon all these practices… They find it strange when male Christians visit them wearing pony tails and earrings!”
God designed the human body to be a temple of the Holy Spirit. Consequently, Satan covets the human body as a temple of demons. The easiest way to accomplish this, is to lead the person to scar, modify, and tattoo the body, thereby violating God’s Word, and attaching demons to the person’s life and body, while others indwell the person’s soul or mind.
To protect humanity from such demonic possession, God commanded in Lev. 19:28, “You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, [in ancestor worship initiation rituals,] nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord.”
CURSES, JINXES, SPELLS OR HEXES, ENCHANTMENT, AND HAUNTING
Technically, all the words in this heading qualify as curses. Just as so-called ‘white’ and black magic, all these words originated from the realm of the devil. Cursing is the way in which an evil desire or request is set in motion by calling up and sending forth demons to haunt, (plague, destroy, deceive, control, etc.) other witches, enemies, family, lovers, children and friends. One does not have to be a Satanist to call up demons. As God views all disobedience as “idolatry” and “witchcraft,” and because all those who hate are spiritual “murderers,” all evil words and actions are powered by demons, (1 Sam. 15:23; 1 Jn. 3:15.) Left unrepented, such witchcraft will have nasty consequences for everyone involved. Although demons have no reason to be loyal to witches or to function under their control, they deceive witches to believe that they are in control of ‘their’ demons, while the opposite is true. Nonetheless, evil attracts evil, so that the curse without a cause will merely fly overhead, and those whom Jesus have blessed cannot be cursed as long as they remain under His blood Covenant, (Prov. 26:2; Mt. 25:34-36.) It is impossible for a demon to stick a curse on the person, who is “pure of heart,” and has not intentionally wronged the one who sent it.
Jinxes or hexes are curses that give demons the power to bring ‘bad luck’ on people, such as repeated accidents, constant loss and illness, and even premature death. Luck always comes from Lucifer and has nothing to do with God’s blessings in Christ. All curses affect the witch, the ‘client,’ and the victim. It is well known in the occult that once a demon has been called up and released, (or “energized,”) it cannot be stopped. (Not by demonic power, in any case. The prayer of Jesus’ true disciples in the power of the Holy Spirit is another matter.) If it cannot penetrate the life, soul, or body of the victim, it will return to the witch and the client to release its intended power onto the senders. (This is God’s principle of ‘reap what you sow’ in action. Eventually, everyone lives by what they have sown throughout their lives.)
Curses can be spoken, recited or chanted, written, or a combination of these. High Satanists also send forth curses by ‘thought processes,’ (concentrating on a demon; instructing him to act as the unseen agent performing a certain act,) as illustrated in ‘magic’ shows where they supposedly send stuff flying through the air with the ‘power of their minds.’ Demons are always the ones who are actually performing these ‘tricks.’
Spells tend to focus more on hypnotic deception to bring a person under the witch’s control, such as an unwilling or unsuspecting man or woman, who is ‘bewitched’ or ‘enchanted’ by a female or male witch. ‘Love’ spells always focus on placing demons of deception and blindness, emotional melancholy, uncontrollable lust, and emotional and sexual control on the victim. Deceptively, so-called ‘white’ witches allege they use ‘white’ magic or do ‘good’ curses, such as to ‘bring back a lost lover’ - against the lover’s will, one might add. And of course, there is no ‘goodness’ in magic of any kind.
