Book of Enoch - RH Charles

Book of Enoch by RH Charles (Audio).  The Book of Enoch written prior to 300 BC, it is an ancient Jewish religious work, ascribed by tradition to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah, although modern scholars estimate the older sections (mainly in the Book of the Watchers) to date from about 300 BC, and the latest part (Book of Parables) probably to the first century BC


Background on the Book of Enoch (wikipedia extract).


Judaism: Although evidently widely knownduring the development of the Hebrew Bible canon,1 Enoch was excluded from both the formal canon of the Tanakh andthe typical canon of the Septuagint and therefore, also from the writings knowntoday as the Deuterocanon.One possible reasonfor Jewish rejection of the book might be the textual nature of several earlysections of the book that make use of material from the Torah; for example,1 En 1 is a midrash of Deuteronomy 33.The content, particularly detailed descriptions of fallen angels,would also be a reason for rejection from the Hebrew canon at thisperiod – as illustrated by the comments of Trypho the Jew when debatingwith Justin Martyr on this subject. Trypho:"The utterances of God are holy, but your expositions are merecontrivances, as is plain from what has been explained by you; nay, evenblasphemies, for you assert that angels sinned and revolted from God."(Dialogue 79)

 

Christianity: By the 4th century, the Book of Enochwas mostly excluded from Christian canons, and it is now regarded as scripture byonly the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and the Eritrean Orthodox Church.

 

References in the New Testament: Enoch is referred to as a historicalperson and prophet, and quoted, in Jude 1:14–15:

And Enoch also, theseventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh withten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convict all thatare ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodlycommitted, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spokenagainst him.

Compare this with Enoch 1:9,translated from the Ethiopic (found also in Qumran scroll 4Q204=4QEnochc ar, col I16–18).

And behold! Hecometh with ten thousands of His Saints To execute judgment upon all, And todestroy all the ungodly: And to convict all flesh Of all the works of theirungodliness which they have ungodly committed, And of all the hard things whichungodly sinners have spoken against Him.

Compare this also with what may bethe original source of 1 En 1:9 in Deuteronomy 33:2:

The Lord came fromSinai and dawned from Seir upon us; he shone forth from Mount Paran; he camefrom the ten thousands of Saints, with flaming fire at his right hand.

Under the heading of canonicity, itis not enough to merely demonstrate that something is quoted. Instead, it isnecessary to demonstrate the nature of the quotation. In the case of theJude 14 quotation of 1 Enoch 1:9, it would be difficult to argue that Judedoes not quote Enoch as an historical prophet since he cites Enoch by name.However, there remains a question as to whether the author of Jude attributedthe quotation believing the source to be the historical Enoch before the floodor a midrash ofDeut 33:2–3. The Greek text might seem unusual in stating that "Enochthe Seventh from Adam" prophesied "to" (dative case)not "of" (genitive case) the men, however, this might indicate theGreek meaning “against them” - the dative τούτοις as a dativus incommodi(dative of disadvantage).

Peter H. Davids points to Dead SeaScrolls evidence but leaves it open as to whether Jude viewed 1 Enoch ascanon, deuterocanon, or otherwise: "Did Jude, then, consider thisscripture to be like Genesis or Isaiah? Certainly he did consider it authoritative,a true word from God. We cannot tell whether he ranked it alongside otherprophetic books such as Isaiah and Jeremiah. What we do know is, first, thatother Jewish groups, most notably those living in Qumran near the Dead Sea,also used and valued 1 Enoch, but we do not find it grouped with thescriptural scrolls."

The attribution "Enoch theSeventh from Adam" is apparently itself a section heading taken from1 Enoch (1 En 60:8, Jude 1:14a) and not from Genesis

Also, it has been alleged that 1 Peter, (in 1Peter 3:19–20)and 2 Peter (in 2Peter 2:4–5)make reference to some Enochian material.


Reception: The Book of Enoch was considered asscripture in the Epistle of Barnabas (16:4) and by many ofthe early Church Fathers, such as Athenagoras, Clement of Alexandria, Irenaeus and Tertullian, who wrotec. 200 that the Book of Enoch had been rejected by the Jews because itcontained prophecies pertaining to Christ.[29] However,later Fathers denied the canonicity of the book, and some even considered theEpistle of Jude uncanonical because it refers to an "apocryphal"work.

Healing Faith - Bill Prankard

Short message by Bill Prankard on the healing kind of faith.  Scripture taken from James 5.


James 5: Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.

Do you know the origin of Halloween?

On the best articles on Halloween's origin.  4 students of the history share their brief findings and thoughts on Halloween.

Origin and Meaning of HALLOWEEN.

After searching the origin of Halloween, historical meaning behind Halloween and the Halloween of today, I have found various viewpoints on the subject.  But even though there are slightly different view points there is a common message throughout it. Here are four statements from people in different walks of life really sum it up.  All of them have studied this topic extensively (refer to main stream reference material - like Encyclopedia Britannica for a surface reference.  It ties back to their statements).  One is from an Agnostic, the other from a certified Witch and the other from a Christian.  Can I go participate?  What are the repercussions if I do?  Bottom line, Is it good or bad for me and my family?  The world paints a pretty picture of Halloween, it looks harmless, but is it? 
There are many that claim to have the starting point but many of their stories vary from one another.  So in searching for the truth I used the first principle of law, i.e. the truth will be revealed by looking at what is constant in all the messages.  The people I chose come from completely different personal backgrounds in order to aid an unbiased viewpoint.  This is what I have found: The views vary but even though it varies there is one thing that is consistent - An Evil spiritual thread woven throughout all the rituals disguised under the banner of “Fun”, in order to trick people into it.  No matter which way it is dress up it is centered on 2 fundamentals - invoking Fear in others (not from God) and coming from or driven by Evil. The worst of it is we as parents encourage our Children to participate. Many of these rituals and playful events like, “Trick or Treat” is still performed today.  It is a pagan festival that will not be celebrated in the 1000 years reign with Christ.  For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord (Eph 5:8-10).  Celebrating a pagan festival (it is not a superimposed Christian Holiday like Christmas) is not acceptable no matter how much fun it is.  Christians know the answer deep down but do they want to obey.
Actual Extracts from 4 types of studients of Halloween: Agnostic, a Witch, and 2 Christians. 


1. HALLOWEEN from an Agnostic.

The word itself, "Halloween," actually has its origins in the Catholic Church. It comes from a contracted corruption of All Hallows Eve. November 1, "All Hollows Day" (or "All Saints Day"), is a Catholic day of observance in honor of saints. But, in the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on October 31. The holiday was called Samhain (sow-en), the Celtic New year. 

One story says that, on that day, the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year. It was believed to be their only hope for the afterlife. The Celts believed all laws of space and time were suspended during this time allowing the spirit world to intermingle with the living. The thrust of the practices also changed over time to become more ritualized. As belief in spirit possession waned, the practice of dressing up like hobgoblins, ghosts, and witches took on a more ceremonial role. 

The Jack-o-lantern custom probably comes from Irish folklore. As the tale is told, a man named Jack, who was notorious as a drunkard and trickster, tricked Satan into climbing a tree. Jack then carved an image of a cross in the tree's trunk, trapping the devil up the tree. Jack made a deal with the devil that if he would never tempt him again he would promise to let him down the tree. According to the folk tale, after Jack died, he was denied entrance to Heaven because of his evil ways, but he was also denied access to Hell because he had tricked the devil. Instead, the devil gave him a single ember to light his way through the frigid darkness. The ember was placed inside a hollowed-out turnip to keep it glowing longer. The Irish used turnips as their "Jack's lanterns" originally. But when the immigrants came to America, they found that pumpkins were far more plentiful than turnips. So the Jack-O-Lantern in America was a hollowed-out pumpkin, lit with an ember. 




2. HALLOWEEN from a Witch

In recent years, there have been a number of pamphlets put out by various Christian organizations dealing with the origins of modern day Halloween customs. Being a Witch myself, and a student of the ancient Celts, from whom we get this holiday, I have found these pamphlets woefully inaccurate and poorly researched. In an effort to correct some of this erroneous information, I have spent several months researching the religious life of the ancient Celtic peoples and the survivals of that religious life in modern day times. Listed below are some of the most commonly asked questions concerning the origins and customs of Halloween. 

Where does Halloween come from? Our modern celebration of Halloween is a descendent of the ancient Celtic fire festival called "Samhain". 

What about the aspects of "evil" that we associate with the night today? The fairies, however, were often considered hostile and dangerous to humans because they were seen as being resentful of men taking over their lands. On this night, they would sometimes trick humans into becoming lost in the fairy mounds, where they would be trapped forever. After the coming of the Christians to the Celtic lands, certain of the folk saw the fairies as those angels who had sided neither with God or with Lucifer in their dispute, and thus, were condemned to walk the earth until judgment day. Many followers of various pagan religions, such as Druids and Wiccans observe this day as a religious festival.

What about "trick or treat"? During the course of these hijinks, many of the people would imitate the fairies and go from house to house begging for treats. Failure to supply the treats would usually result in practical jokes being visited on the owner of the house. Since the fairies were abroad on this night, an offering of food or milk was frequently left for them on the steps of the house, so the homeowner could gain the blessings of the "good folk" for the coming year. Many of the households would also leave out a "dumb supper" for the spirits of the departed. The folks who were abroad in the night imitating the fairies would sometimes carry turnips carved to represent faces. This is the origin of our modern Jack-o-lantern. 

Was this a religious festival? Yes. Celtic religion was very closely tied to the Earth. Their great legends are concerned with momentous happenings which took place around the time of Samhain. Many of the great battles and legends of kings center on this night. Many of the legends concern the promotion of fertility of the earth and the insurance of the continuance of the lives of the people through the dark winter season. 

What about sacrifices? Animals were certainly killed at this time of year. Most certainly, some of these would have been done in a ritualistic manner for the use of the priesthood. 

Were humans sacrificed? Scholars are sharply divided on this account, with about half believing that it took place and half doubting its authenticity. 

3. HALLOWEEN from a Christian.

What is Halloween not?  It is not Satan's birthday nor is it a good celebration.  
What is Halloween?  It is a pagan festival started in the British Isles with the Druids.  And Satanists most solemn ceremony of the year.  It is the celebrating of the spiritual forces of darkness.  The ancient Celtic festival called Samhain is considered by many to be a predecessor of our contemporary Halloween.  Samhain was the New Year's Day of the Celts and was celebrated on November 1st (5th Century BC).  It was also known as the “day of the dead”, a time when it was believed that the souls of those who had died during the year were allowed access to the land of the dead.  It was related to the season, when the crops and the animals were to be brought in from the distant fields.  It was also the night of the wandering dead, the practice of leaving offerings of food and drink to masked and costumed revelers, and the lighting of bonfires, continued to be practiced on October 31, known as the Eve of All Saints, the Eve of All Hallows, or Hallow Even.  It is the glossing of the name Hallow Even that has given us the name Hallow e'en.  Come evening, evil spirits were everywhere. Charms and spells were said to have more power on the eve of Samhain than any other time.  The spirits of Samhain, once thought to be wild and powerful, and also evil.  People maintained that the spiritual beings people had experienced during that day were real, and later on the Church said it was the manifestations of the Devil, the Prince of Liars, who misled people toward the worship of false idols.  Thus, the customs associated with Halloween included representations of ghosts and human skeletons--symbols of the dead--and of the devil and other malevolent, evil creatures, witches etc..  People went on expecting the arrival of ghosts on Oct. 31st.  Halloween was brought to the US in 1840 by Irish immigrants.

In exchange for the victim, they left a Jack-O-Lantern with a lighted candle made of human fat. Which was supposed to prevent those inside the home from death demons that night. When some unfortunate person couldn't meet the demands of the Druids then it was time for the trick. A symbolic hex was drawn on the front door for later that evening. That night evil spirits would visit the homes that have the symbolic hex.  Some people in the home were killed or tormented.  Does this festival sound good to you?
Why do people keep Halloween going?  Kids love Halloween because it is both fun and scary, and of course free candy. But they have no idea what's behind this celebration.  As we get closer to the Second Coming of Jesus, Satanism will increase.  

Who is the motivating force behind it and why?  Satan's greatest desire is to hurt and destroy people.  He promotes Halloween because it glamorizes the powers of darkness thus drawing little children and ignorant parents into his realm. Parents who are allowing their children to participate are causing their children to stumble.  The children respect and believe what the parents are telling them.  When the children interact with other children who are dressed up as the devil, witches they come to accept it as “Fun” and nothing that should be shunned.  They establish strongholds in their mind like, “There are good and bad witches” (that’s a lie from hell because all witches are bad) another is the dark forces of this world have fun (that’s another lie).  But it is paying off, witchcraft is exploding among teens today under the banner of “innocent fun” and films, e.g. Harry Potter. If Satanists can establish strongholds in the minds of young children, then it will be harder for good to break them when they are older.  People hold onto their traditions and die defending it then even if it was based on a lie they will still defend it to their destruction.  Therefore knowing or ignorant parents are setting their children up for failure.  Now they may find moments of pleasure but later live in hardship unless they repent.

What do Satanists do leading up to this day?  They celebrate it and interact with the spiritual forces.  They brain storm ideas to impact the roots of future generations, i.e. Children. They want people to say, “It is fun and therefore it cannot be bad.”  So whatever evil core they use they seek for avenues to coat it with elements of “Fun” thereby disguising the evil properties.  Parents will start saying, “It cannot be bad, look how much fun and joy the children are having.”  Darkness needs an avenue through which to enter people’s lives, Halloween is just one avenue.  

What should Christians do?  Use it as an opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Share the gospel but don’t participate.  Sharing the gospel will bring people out of the spiritual darkness.  But if we are not bringing the lantern of the gospel then don’t participate.  Then we are hurting ourselves and others.  An increasing number of people are seeing the dangers associated with celebrating Halloween.  Wise parents are replacing Halloween with family night activities. Others are having "Glory Gatherings" where all references to Halloween are removed and wholesome games are played, Christian songs are sung and Christian videos are shown. While others pray that God shows mercy on the people. 

What happens if Christians don’t believe it is Bad and continue to participate?  God said that my people perish because of their ignorance, lack of knowledge (Hos. 4:6).  If the Christians truly want to know the answer they would seek God for the answer.  But the reason many don’t seek God on this is because deep down they know it is bad and if they ask God and He reveals it to them then they have to obey.  The fact is they don’t want to obey this.  Because once they know then they cannot hide behind the curtain of ignorance.  But ignorance is not an excuse, “If a person sins, and commits any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD, though he does not know it, yet he is guilty and shall bear his iniquity” (Lev. 5:17).  God will hold us accountable for the way we bring up our children.  As “there is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.  Even in laughter the heart may sorrow, and the end of mirth may be grief.  The backslider in heart will be filled with his own ways, but a good man will be satisfied from above.  The simple believes every word, but the prudent considers well his steps.  A wise man fears and departs from evil, but a fool rages and is self-confident” (Prov. 14:12-16).  Once we come to Christ Holy Spirit is on the inside of us speaking to us.  The only reason some cannot hear Him clearly is because they are not spending time in His Word and not praying.  He continues to speak but the strongholds of tradition cover His voice and many ignore it (Eph. 4:17-19).  So find out what is acceptable to the Lord (Eph 5:8-10). 

God will speak through His Word and will confirm it with a sense of knowing in the heart.  “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Tim. 4:3-4).  “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!  For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth....Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Tim. 3:1-7, 12-17).    “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Gal. 6:7).  People give out candy and join it with “Trick or treat”, thereby participate in the pagan ritual.  The things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons. Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?  (1 Cor. 10:20-22).  “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph 6:12).  So ask yourself, “What is the probability of Halloween being celebrated in the 1000years reign of Christ and why?”  If it is not God's Will to celebrate it then why are you participating in it now?  Is it to bring God Glory or Satan glory?


4. HALLOWEEN from another Christian.

In order to understand Halloween, it is important to understand the history of this fall holiday. Halloween, which directly stems from Irish, Scottish, Welsh and British folk customs, was celebrated as the Druids' autumn festival. The Druids were an order of priests who worshiped nature. They were accomplished magicians and wizards at the height of their influence some 200 years before the birth of Jesus.

This holiday was originally celebrated to honor Samhain, lord of the dead, on October 31 (the end of the summer). The Druids believed that on this date, Samhain called all the wicked souls that had been condemned within the last year to live in animal bodies. He was believed to have released them in the form of spirits, ghosts, fairies, witches and elves.

According to Druidic tradition, these souls of the dead roamed the city on Halloween night and returned to haunt the homes where they once lived. The only way the current occupants of the house could free themselves from being haunted was to lay out food and give shelter to the spirit during the night. If they didn't, the spirit would cast a spell on them. That is where the phrase "trick or treat" comes from: They would be tricked if they didn't lay out a treat.

The jack-o'-lantern was also a part of this belief system. The carved pumpkin symbolized a damned soul named Jack. According to the tale, Jack was not allowed into heaven or hell. So, he wandered around in the darkness with his lantern until Judgment Day. Fearful people hollowed out turnips (and later pumpkins in the United States), carved an evil face on them, and a lit candle inside to scare him and other evil spirits away.

The Druids had other outlandish beliefs which have since turned into tradition. For example, they were afraid of black cats because they believed that when a person committed evil, he would be turned into a cat. Cats were thus considered to be evil. To scare them away, the Druids decorated their homes with witches, ghosts and the like. They also decorated with cornstalks, pumpkins and other goods in offering of thanks and praise to their false gods.



In addition to being Halloween, October 31 was also the New Year's Eve of the Celts and Anglo-Saxons. To celebrate, they built huge bonfires on hilltops to frighten away evil spirits, and often offered their crops and animals to them as a sacrifice - sometimes they even offered themselves or others.

The Romans began the conquest of the Celts around A.D. 43 and ruled much of what is now the United Kingdom for about 400 hundred years. During this period, two Roman autumn festivals were combined with the Celtic festival of Samhain. One of them, called Feralia, was held in late October to honor the dead. The other festival honored Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruit and trees. The practice of bobbing for apples became associated with Halloween because of this festival.

Some people have thought that Halloween's only significance was as the evening before All Saints' Day, a festival of the Catholic Church honoring all Christian saints. The Mass said on All Saints' Day was called Allhallowmas. The evening before became known as the Eve of All Saints, the Eve of All Hallows, All Hallows' Eve, or Hallow Even, which has given us the name Hallowe'en.

Although All Saints' Day contributed to the naming of Halloween, All Saints' Day itself did not exist until A.D. 700 when it was instituted by Pope Boniface IV. Originally it was celebrated in the spring on the first Sunday after Pentecost. Its date was changed to November 1 by Pope Gregory III (reigned A.D. 731-741) in an attempt to add a Christian influence to the traditional pagan customs still being celebrated on October 31 by Celtic converts. When sending missionaries to convert native peoples, the Catholic Church encouraged the redefinition of local customs into Christian terms and concepts. Therefore, All Saints' Day and Halloween became unified, because of the same ties to reverencing the dead.

The combination of these customs eventually became the traditional celebration we call Halloween. It is important for parents to consider these "harmless gestures of enjoyment" and the distorted images they make in a child's heart. We must realize Halloween is a holiday centered around fear and death.

Modern day witches and wizards believe this night to be the most suitable night of the year for magic and demonic activity. In Deuteronomy 18:10-11, God forbids us to participate in any kind of occult practices or witchcraft. Further, in the New Testament, we are told to abstain from the appearance of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22).

As Christians, we should not celebrate Halloween, rather we should recognize October 31 as the day the Lord has made - a day we can rejoice in (Psalm 118:24). And we don't need to be fearful, for God has not given us a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7).

Parents should teach their children faith in God. Children can have just as much fun on a Halloween centered around the Word of God and family fellowship. Make a commitment today to give your children the Word of God instead of the fairy tales the world offers - it will help them grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4).

Here is a prayer of safety you can pray for your family on Halloween:
Father, in the Name of Jesus, I thank You that You watch over Your Word to perform it. I thank You that my family and I dwell in the secret place of the Most High and that we remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty, Whose power no foe can withstand.

Father, You are our refuge and our fortress. No evil shall befall us - no accident shall overtake us - nor any plague or calamity come near our home. You give Your angels special charge over each one of us, to accompany and defend and preserve us in all our ways of obedience and service. They are encamped around about us.

Lord, I will train my children in the way they should go; and according to Your Word, when they are old, they will not depart from it. And I bind the devil from trying to influence them in any way this holiday.

Father, You are our confidence, firm and strong. You keep our feet from being caught in a trap or hidden danger. When we lie down, You will give us peaceful sleep. Father, You give this family safety and ease us - Jesus is our safety!


Here are all the verses typed out at least one should hit home.
Deuteronomy 18:10-11There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead
Ephesians 5:8-10 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord.
 
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
  
Ephesians 4:17-19  This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of[a] the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; 19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
 
1 Thessalonians 5:22  Abstain from every form of evil.
 2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
 
2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables”.
 
2 Timothy 3:1-7, 12-17 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!  For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work"
 
Leviticus 5:17 “If a person sins, and commits any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD, though he does not know it, yet he is guilty and shall bear his iniquity”. 
 
Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places”. 

Acts 19:19-20  Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed. 

Galatians 6:7  Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

Now the decision is yours to make, make the right one.
