Breaking free from witchcraft curses

The Bible reminds us to use our tongues to bless others and not to curse them. Out of envy or malice, people may go to the extent of consulting witches, sorcerers, or witchdoctors to curse those whom they consider a threat or an enemy. If we suspect we have been...

破除神秘主义

Breaking off from the occult

The occult has infiltrated mainstream media and everyday life to the point that we have accepted them as the norm. Astrology, fortune telling, magic, witchcraft, spiritualism, para-psychology, ancestor worship and idol worship are just some occult practices that have been disguised as “harmless”, “entertainment”, “family tradition”, “good for health” or...

祭祖违背了神的话语

Ancestor worship opposes God’s Word

As followers of Jesus Christ, we worship the living Saviour who conquered death by His resurrection from the grave. Chinese traditions, however, call on Chinese people to revere our ancestors and their graves. Such practices directly oppose God’s Word and can be a source of conflict with non-believing family members,...

Spiritual pollution of homes, districts and territories

Our Creator has given us the privilege to care for and have dominion over His earth. He also promises to bless us in the land He gives us when we obey His commandments. Yet as we know, mankind has been polluting our environment at alarming rates. More than that, the...

Testing for idols in our hearts

When Jesus Christ becomes our Lord and Saviour, He sends His Holy Spirit to reside in our hearts to guide our conscience, motivations, and inclinations. Many things in this world fight for God’s position in our hearts and divide our devotion to Him. An infinite number of idols tempt us...

Overcoming the spirit of Jezebel

In the final book in the New Testament, God commends the good and faithful church in Thyatira, but rebukes it for tolerating “that woman Jezebel”. It appears God is talking about a long-dead queen called Jezebel from the Old Testament. In reality, He is referring to the same destructive spiritual...

Withstanding the social pressures of Halloween

Between October 31 and November 2, people around the world honour spirits of the dead with various festivities. These include Halloween, All Saints’ Day, and Samhain, an important event for Wiccan witches. As followers of Jesus Christ, it is contradictory for us celebrate Easter and such festivities. Easter honours Jesus...

Image for Beware energy healing

Beware energy healing

The original Hebrew word for the Holy Spirit is Ruach, which refers to the breath of God that disperses His life-force and energy. We see that God’s powerful life-force and energy flowed out of Jesus as He laid His hands on people to heal them. Today, there are other forms...

Image for Understanding demonic oppression 

Understanding demonic oppression 

There is a general disbelief that Christians can be captured, oppressed and controlled by demons. It seems hard to imagine how believers who have the Holy Spirit in them can also “host” demons at the same time. Isn’t faith in Jesus enough to stay free from demonisation? As the testimonies in this...

Image for What is your horoscope

What is your horoscope?

Horoscopes, lunar calendars, zodiac signs, tarot cards and numerology are based on the study of the stars and planets to try to explain who we are, our relationships and what lies ahead. We need to keep in mind that over time, these floating bodies of rock and gas will explode...

Lies we believe from horror stories 

Ask anyone how he or she would react if they saw a demon, and the usual reply would be one of dread and fear. Such reactions are heavily influenced by horror movies and ghost stories. Sadly, we have fallen for too many lies about evil spirits. The true story from the Bible is...

Image for Why feng shui is unprofitable

Why feng shui is unprofitable

Many people turn to feng shui with the hope of influencing the energy flow in their homes or workplaces, so they can be blessed with the best possible fortune. They orientate their interiors, move furniture around and buy objects they believe bring them good luck. Unfortunately, they miss out on the...

How Satan camouflages his deceptions

Deception is subtle and can even comprise 95% truth. When we are not alert, Satan will cunningly slip in a little lie in the midst of truth and cause us to stray from our loving Father in heaven. The Bible warns us to be alert. How does Satan camouflage his...

Image for Breaking generational curses

Breaking generational curses

Every family is defined by its biological and spiritual roots. Nowadays, we don’t make much effort to examine our family tree or try to understand our spiritual heritage. If we did, we may notice the passing of blessings or curses from one generation to another. How do we break generational...

Image for Witchcraft is mainstream and dangerous

Witchcraft is mainstream and dangerous

Witchcraft is defined as the “religious practice involving ritual, spells, and nature worship, usually within a pagan tradition“. Witchcraft promises people superior power or wisdom through beliefs, philosophies, idols, “energies” and signs and wonders. It appeals to man’s desire for greater knowledge, favour or control of our own lives. All these...

Curses can be broken

When we rebel against God’s laws and run our lives selfishly, we invite curses upon ourselves. Anyone who goes against God’s designs for life will eventually suffer spiritually, relationally, mentally, physically or financially. Thank God that curses can be broken in Jesus’ name.   Deuteronomy 11:26-28 “See, I am setting...

Image for Ungodly soul ties must be cut

Ungodly soul ties must be cut

God calls us to love Him with all our soul. Yet we can be enticed away from God by those that are “as our own soul” and compromise our full devotion to our Heavenly Father. Such relationships form the foundation for ungodly soul ties. (See Chinese versions: 體中文 > 切斷不敬虔的魂結 | 简体中文 > 切断不敬虔的魂结)  ...

Baby dedications must be renewed
