Danger of Divination by Tina Storey

Like many non-Christian families, visiting Spiritualists and Fortune Tellers was our form of Spirituality. We simply didn’t know any better and nobody taught us otherwise.

The Origin of Satan

There are two passages in Scripture that give a clear prophetic insight into the beginnings of Satan. In Isaiah 14 the message is introduced to be against the king of Babylon; in Ezekiel 28 it has two subjects,first the prince (nawgheed) of Tyre and then the king (mehleh) of Tyre. We need to ask however, “Can all that is said…read more →

John Cramphorn – formerly involved in the occult

Prologue Trapped in a spiritual battle. He went ballistic; he was so annoyed and angry he turned glowing red in colour as if flames of fire were coming from every orifice. In front of my very eyes, he changed into this unrecognisable creature of pure evil and hatred. Hatred just emanated from every part of his body, as I stood…read more →
