There is an aspect to the abuse of drugs, that most people don’t know about. When drug abuse produces an altered state of mind, the abuser of the drug sometimes enters a forbidden mysterious world full of intrigue. One man I interviewed recounted a fascinating story of his experience.
Having mainlined the drug in his possession, he entered a world seemingly in another dimension. A shadowy creature followed him around. He could tell where the creature was, but he could not see him clearly. His shape was like a man and the creature shared unusual knowledge with him. The so-called knowledge was intriguing and he enjoyed hearing these things. There was also a gripping sense of fear that was present in this world, scary, but exhilarating. It was sort of like the mysterious excitement involved in watching a horror movie. The creature would follow him to his parents home where he lived, but would not go inside for some reason. The creature would wait for him outside until he came back out and then would go with him again wherever he was going.
My friends, this creature in the interview is from the realm of fallen angels. Fallen angels are powerful, knowledgeable creatures that seek the destruction of humanity.
Jude 1:6, “And the angels that kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
One third of the angels rebelled with Lucifer against Almighty YaHVeH, and they have been imprisoned in darkness until the judgment day. They work with Lucifer/Satan/the Devil/the prince of this world, who walks to and fro in the earth seeking whom he may devour. They use deceit and trickery in their efforts to draw humans into their trap. One of their traps is sorcery.
Revelation 9:21, “Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
This word sorceries comes from the Greek word pharmakeia, and it means “medication”. In English we have the word pharmacy. Pharmakeia is linked to magic/sorcery/witchcraft and Revelation 9 reveals, that pharmakeia/sorcery is sin. It will be prevalent in the end times. Drug abuse/sorcery opens up a direct and dangerous avenue into the mind of humans. Once a human opens this door to demonic activity, it is extremely difficult to close, because it grants a type of permission to demonic oppression that leads to devastating bondage. Almighty God forbids this kind of human interaction with fallen angels/demons/devils; and instead, He tells us to seek after Him.
Psychiatrists sometimes use more medication and other secular tactics in their efforts to cure this spiritual condition and that is why they have such little success. If you bring physical weapons to a spiritual fight, you will doubtless lose the battle. A person enslaved by sorcery/drugs needs to seek spiritual help from someone who knows what they are doing, because these poor souls are in a desperate battle with fallen angels/demons/devils for their very souls. Only Yahshua Jesus has a satisfactory liberating remedy, that truly sets the captive free. The blood of Yahshua Jesus is overwhelmingly able to free humanity from sins. The name Yahshua Jesus is overwhelmingly capable of crushing the power of demons and breaking every chain of bondage.
Pastors and parents need to warn their youth of the spiritual consequences of drug abuse; namely, sorcery. The chains of sorcery are formidable. Many people are caught in this trap and have had little success of getting free. True Christians possess the power to set the captives free, blessed be the name YaHVeH.
