New Things To Us
The world has instilled fear and gave a boxed explanation for each one. In truth, things are not as obvious to the naked eye. However, there are those who, after receiving Jesus Christ and accepting Him in his life, and making Jesus as King and Sovereign Lord, have received the Holy Spirit – and the Holy Spirit gifted with the eyes to see the Spirit realm. Such people can see anything and everything spiritual. This would include the following, but may or may not be limited at all:
- demons and evil spirits
- works of the demons
- movement of demons and evil spirits
- weapons of the warrior angels
- what they are wearing
- the color of what they are wearing
- the Lord of all!
- God’s mighty hand
- God’s throne
- heaven’s gate
- golden stairs, golden lampstand, golden cup, golden book, golden pen
- silver things – swords, shields, etc.
- waters – all forms
- other many things…
- their location
- what is happening to them
- attacks on them
- spirits around them
- disgusting faces of the evil spirits
- horrible sight of the demons
- witches and their doings
Now let us explore this, and clarify things:
- You are unbeliever like me before. Sinner. Disobedient. Unforgiving.
- You encountered the Lord – you received Him and make Him King and Savior!
- You got saved. You were given more knowledge – to know what is right and wrong
- You desired to know the Lord more, and in the process He revealed the Father – by the power of the Holy Spirit. More likely, you became prayerful, and a reader of His Word – the Bible.
- The Holy Spirit enabled you to change, and be holy and righteous – to be able to enter the Lord’s presence. More likely, you were delivered from filth and you repented of your sins.
- The Holy Spirit enabled you by giving you a gift. And there are many gifts.
- You received the ability to see the Spirit realm.
Now that you are a believer who received the Holy Spirit, you are now empowered.
Mark 16:17 New Living Translation
These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.
Believers of Jesus Christ. Can speak tongues (an oxymoron). It’s actually a spiritual thing – speaking something no one can understood except the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the living God – our Sovereign Lord. If the few words before this sentence doesn’t make any sense to you, this writing is not for you. Note that you can only cast out demons in the name of our Lord Jesus – no other name is given.
Bear with me. Know the following scriptures, for your own sake. :
Acts 4:12 New Living Translation
There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”
1 Timothy 2:5 New Living Translation
For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity–the man Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 8:6 New Living Translation
But we know that there is only one God, the Father, who created everything, and we live for him. And there is only one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom God made everything and through whom we have been given life.
Matthew 11:27 New Living Translation
“My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”
Matthew 28:18-19 New Living Translation
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Mark 16:15-16 New Living Translation
And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”
Ok. Let’s munch on this:
- One Savior
- One God, and One Mediator
- One Lord
- One Lord with all the authority in heaven and on earth
- One Lord who instructs all to :
- Make disciples of all nations
- Baptize the disciples
- One Lord who ordered to preach the good news around the world
Now, we are an empowered believer of Christ Jesus – a disciple baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
What happens now?
Our lives change. We are living daily for Christ. We are in constant fellowship with the Holy Spirit – the mighty Spirit of the living God, our Sovereign Lord! Going back – the Holy Spirit gave us gift to enable us to do things – for the glory of God!

Acts 19:6 New Living Translation
Then when Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in other tongues and prophesied.
The tongues is a very powerful gift. And there are many gifts. Prophesying is another one.

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.
Luke 11:13 New Living Translation
So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.”
Now this is worth noting. Ask for the Holy Spirit and our heavenly Father will give. But we are past that. We are already empowered believer (Christian) of Christ – able to do things by God’s grace.
Romans 8:15 Berean Study Bible
For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

Beware of worshipping the angels. Only God is to be worshipped!

Jesus replied, “The Scriptures say, ‘You must worship the LORD your God and serve only him.’
Colossians 2:17 New Living Translation
For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality. Don’t let anyone condemn you by insisting on pious self-denial or the worship of angels, saying they have had visions about these things. Their sinful minds have made them proud, and they are not connected to Christ, the head of the body. For he holds the whole body together with its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God nourishes it.
We are already in the last days. Expect the unexpected! The knowledge of God increases! He reveals new things about Him and His power. We ought to seek Him more now for His revelations. He alone can enable us to endure. He alone can rescue us in the coming tempest – for He alone knows everything.
Acts 2:17 Berean Study Bible
In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people; your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on My servants, both men and women, I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and clouds of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
All glory to God, our loving Father – our Abba Father!

OTHER IMPORTANT SCRIPTURES:
Hebrews 2:1-4 New Living Translation
So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. For the message God delivered through angels has always stood firm, and every violation of the law and every act of disobedience was punished. So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus himself and then delivered to us by those who heard him speak? And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose.
Romans 12:6 New Living Translation
In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you.

One day Jesus called together his twelve disciples and gave them power and authority to cast out all demons and to heal all diseases.

1 Corinthians 10:18-21 New Living Translation
Think about the people of Israel. Weren’t they united by eating the sacrifices at the altar? What am I trying to say? Am I saying that food offered to idols has some significance, or that idols are real gods? No, not at all. I am saying that these sacrifices are offered to demons, not to God. And I don’t want you to participate with demons. You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too. You cannot eat at the Lord’s Table and at the table of demons, too.
2 Corinthians 6:15-18 New Living Translation
What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the LORD. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you. And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty.”
Mark 3:13 New Living Translation
