Jon Oleksiuk sat with Neil T Anderson who is arguably the most read author on the issue of Spiritual Warfare. This video is the unedited raw interview shot for a new documentary film called “Battling Darkness: Hollywood & the Rise of Exorcism” In this revealing documentary, leading voices from Hollywood and the Christian community, as well as psychologists and modern-day exorcists, discuss the mysteries of the demonic realm. Through a Biblical understanding and first-hand accounts, the film provides insights into the reality of spiritual warfare and offers keys to victory when you find yourself Battling Darkness.
I wonder if Christians still remember what sin is. I do not know a church, even a small, old-fashioned one, that preaches about sin. And this is truly disturbing. They talk about the good stuff, like grace, how wonderful it is that we are forever saved and our sins are forgiven, the past, present and future, how we are children of God and have all the privileges as such, but I have never heard any preaching to stop sinning, to stop gossiping, slandering others, speaking evil about your brother, smoking, drinking, cursing and swearing, watching evil movies full of sex, cursing and crime and so on. They never teach about holiness, never warn that we must strive to finish the race, that the road is narrow and only a few walk on it.
Is it the same in all churches? Just how wonderful it is to be a Christian? Well, listen to this video and think for yourself, Jesus warned clearly several times, to stop sinning, the book of proverbs is full of warnings about various sins. The letters by Paul and others are also full of warnings to be holy. I am getting tired of lukewarm Christianity and Christians picking up only what they want to believe. According to what they believe, it’s better to let people die or be heavily depressed, or on drugs, or in a mental hospital, or commit suicide or do hundreds of other demonic, compulsory actions than to do what Jesus commanded us to do, which is to cast out demons and follow Him with all your heart. Lukewarm Christianity is a dangerous state of sleeping spiritually and thinking that all is fine while your heart is getting harder and harder and further away from your God. This is exactly what demons want, to drag you away from your Savior and make you cold. Until you are back with the world and forget your God.
The End Times
12 “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. 2 Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”
5 Then I, Daniel, looked, and there before me stood two others, one on this bank of the river and one on the opposite bank. 6 One of them said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?”
7 The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time.[b] When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.”
8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?”
9 He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.
11 “From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12 Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.
13 “As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.”
