Veils and Demons

In the recent weeks I have begun to have a greater reverence for the power of prayer.  With this reverence I have begun to take to the old tradition that most Christians in other countries follow by wearing veils during services and prayer.  But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. (1 Corinthians 11:5-6 KJV).

I have seen people healed through the power of prayer.  I have also seen demons cast out by the power of prayer.  Demons are real.  They exist.  As children we are told about demons and the devil but with the advancement of the church into the modern era, the Church has deemphasized the aspect of demons, satan, and hell.  The church has been teaching that God is a forgiving God and will forgive you of all your sins no matter how many.  While this provides us comfort at the time of our death it deemphasizes that true forgiveness.  Luke states in Acts 26:18 KJV To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.  While God forgives we must keep moving toward his glory and salvation.  To receive forgiveness and to continue in sin is choosing sin.  It is not choosing the power of God and therefore true forgiveness is not received.

Demons live off our sin.  They build strongholds in our souls and prevent the power of the Holy Ghost from really working to his full potential. Deliverance ministry is important.  I have seen demons cast out of people and admittedly it is frightening.   No one wants to admit they have strongholds that demons reside in.  Going through deliverance ministry I find the hardest part for me to be willing to sit down and have the demons cast out is the fact that they show themselves.  I do not want to know that their there. I am a good person.  I care for others.  This is not me.  The fear is what happens if it takes more than one session.  Why would I want to experience this all over again?  At some point I will muster enough courage to sit and have my soul examined and cleared but it does not mean that there is fear about it.  A great deal of deliverance ministry is trust.  A trust that the Lord will help you, that others in the room that pray with you will not judge you  and that your priest will be able to assist you in your deliverance.

For deliverance to be successful change must occur.  For mine it is removing myself and my belongings from multiple organizations I have spent almost half of my life participating in. I have lost friends that I have had for over 15 years.  I had had rumors spread about me to villainize me for leaving.  Although this occurs I have found peace in being at church and on holy ground much more so than in lodge rooms that try to emulate that peaceful reverent feeling.  Debate runs heavy in the Christian churches whether these organizations belong to the occult because of the good works the organization does for children and the community.  My church has found these organizations to be part of the occult and for good reason.   In James 5: 12 KJV  But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. By taking an oath we have bound ourselves to following charges and commitments that might someday be contradictory to the Law of the Lord.  Why would we put ourselves in that situation?  The organizations require members to take oaths on Holy Books that require men to submit to having their throats cut in secrets are revealed.  Everything in the house of the Lord is open and no secrets are hid.  Therefore these organizations although claiming to be fraternities are contrary to the Christian Church’s teaching.

Therefore I pray and keeping with God’s word I veil myself while praying and while being in the church. Demons are real and the spiritual warfare that occurs in this world that we do not see I believe is real.  Thus to ensure my prayers are pleasing to the Lord and my worship is pleasing I choose to veil to ensure a holiness and peacefulness is maintained in my personal worship with the Lord.

  1. For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,fn

    15from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

    16that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,

    17that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

    18may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—

    19to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

    20Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

    21to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21

  2. If we love God with all our heart there will be nothing left to love anything contrary to God.
    We love Him because He first loved us. Focus on the cross and you will see how much He loved you. This is the key to freedom from sin and lust. Love Him more, and be patient. Love grows.
