Read the story about Adam the Eve who are warning people for satan, because he has fooled Cain to kill. Sataniel masqueraded himself to a human being several times to fool people.
CHAP. XVII Seems as this story is about the nephilims (the fallen angels in humanized forms who fool the women of Cain?)
4 Satan then appeared to him with thirty men of his hosts, in the form of handsome men; Satan himself being the elder and tallest among them, with a fine beard.
5 They stood at the mouth of the cave, and called out Jared, from within it.
6 He came out to them, and found them looking like fine men, full of light, and of great beauty. He wondered at their beauty and at their looks; and thought within himself whether they might not be of the children of Cain.
34 But while they were staying there, three of them went into houses of the sons of Cain, and said to them, “Bring us to-day some food by the fountain of water, for us and our companions to eat.”
35 But when the sons of Cain saw them, they wondered at them and thought: “These are beautiful to look at, and such as we never saw before.” So they rose and came with them to the fountain of water, to see their companions.
36 They found them so very handsome, that they cried aloud about their places for others to gather together and come and look at these beautiful beings. Then they gathered around them both men and women.
37 Then the elder said to them, “We are strangers in your land, bring us some good food and drink you and your women, to refresh ourselves with you.”
38 When those men heard these words of the elder, every one of Cain’s sons brought his wife, and another brought his daughter, and so, many women came to them; every one addressing Jared either for himself or for his wife; all alike.
43 He then spread his hands and prayed with a fervent heart, and with much weeping, and entreated God to deliver him from their hands.
44 No sooner did Jared begin to pray than the elder fled with his companions; for they could not abide in a place of prayer.
45 Then Jared turned round but could not see them, but found himself standing in the midst of the children of Cain.
46 He then wept and said, “O God, destroy me not with this race, concerning which my fathers have warned me; for now, O my Lord God, I was thinking that those who appeared unto me were my (satan and his disciples played arisen forefathers from the dead) fathers; but I have found them out to be devils, who allured me by this beautiful apparition, until I believed them.
THE children of Jared were in the habit of visiting him hour after hour, to receive his blessing and to ask his advice for every thing they did; and when he had a work to do, they did it for him.
2 But this time when they went into the cave they found not Jared, but they found the lamp put out, and the bodies of the fathers thrown about, and voices came from them by the power of God, that said, “Satan in an apparition has deceived our son (Jared), wishing to destroy him, as he destroyed our son Cain.”
3 The Lord said, “My Spirit will not ·remain in [or contend with] human beings forever, because they are ·flesh [mortal]. ·They will live [L Their days will be] only 120 years.”
4 The ·Nephilim [L fallen ones; C the significance of the name is unclear] were on the earth in those days and also later. That was when the sons of God ·had sexual relations with [L came in to] the daughters of ·human beings [T man; C Hebrew: Adam; 1:27–28]. These women gave birth to children ·who became famous [L men of a name] and were the mighty warriors of long ago. [C The Nephilim of Num. 13:31–33, though not related genealogically, were giants, suggesting these pre-flood Nephilim were also.]
5 The Lord saw that the human beings on the earth were very ·wicked [evil] and that ·everything they thought about [L every inclination of their mind/heart] was ·evil [wicked].

8 Then the serpent was struck dumb, and spake no more.
9 And a wind came to blow from heaven by command of God that carried away the serpent from Adam and Eve, threw it on the sea shore, and it landed in India. COBRA = THE SNAKE DEMONIZED ITSELF TO KUNDALINI?
Anyone mind-trolling people with a remote control? Anyone casting demons on their next fellow? Anyone who causes people to implant wicked thoughts or make people to sin?
Matthew 18:6-7 The Message (MSG) 6-7 “But if you give them a hard time, bullying or taking advantage of their simple trust, you’ll soon wish you hadn’t. You’d be better off dropped in the middle of the lake with a millstone around your neck. Doom to the world for giving these God-believing children a hard time! Hard times are inevitable, but you don’t have to make it worse—and it’s doomsday to you if you do.
Matthew 18:7 International Standard Version (ISV) How terrible it will be for the world due to its temptations to sin! Temptations to sin are bound to happen, but how terrible it will be for that person who causes someone to sin!
WE ARE ALL GOD’S CHILDREN grown-ups as well as kids!
Or are these verses ONLY meant for THE GROWN-UPS?
DO SMALL KIDS SIN OR ARE THEY ONLY MAKING MISTAKES?
New Living Translation Matthew 18:7 “What sorrow awaits the world, because it tempts people to sin. Temptations are inevitable, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting.
From what I understand there are different religions that forbid drinking blood weather it is from humans or animals. Why?
1.) Blood can be contaminated with known viruses, as well as unknown viruses.
2.) Blood may contain demons. Even animals can carry demons inside of them.
3.) One can carry a quite demon for many years and is trying to mislead you, and you might not notice “it/them” for a long time, one can also carry many different types of demons.
I don’t think it is possible for oneself to cast out demons at any time, just anyhow, from what I understand, because I have not found in The Holys Scriptures that any human being was casting out demons from their own bodies, by themselves. Because it seems as, in order to be able to cast out demons, one must have the Good Holy Spirit within oneself, one must be clean from all type of evil, it is not enough to be “shielded” by the help of witch-craft. Yeshua was asking, how can the devil cast out devils? People can not cast out demons out from them selves, if they do not have the Holy Spirit within themselves. Maybe one can get the Holy Spirit if you pray and read the Bible and try to understand the books.
But on the other hand, if the witches do not plan to give up their black magic, then at least cast out the demons anyway, but don’t but new demons instead. If you were able to cast demons onto someone, then you must be able to cast them out as well?
Suppose the demons you have put inside your fellows, will cast them out themselves and instead install themselves inside the person who actually is controlling them? Suppose the demons might find out that they are operating in the wrong body?
Luke 11:14-19 Expanded Bible (EXB)
Jesus’ Power Is from God
11:14 One time Jesus was ·sending [driving; casting] out a demon ·who could not talk [or who was making a man mute]. When the demon came out, the man who had been unable to speak, then spoke. The ·people were [crowd was]amazed. 15 But some of them said, “Jesus uses the power of Beelzebul [ another name for Satan], the ruler of demons, to ·force [drive; cast]demons out of people.”
16 Other people, wanting to test Jesus, asked him to give them a sign from heaven. 17 But knowing their thoughts, he said to them, “Every kingdom that is ·divided against [at war with] itself ·will be destroyed [is doomed/heading for ruin]. And a ·family [ house] that is ·divided against [at war with] itself will ·not continue [ fall]. 18 So if Satan is divided against himself, ·his kingdom will not continue [ how will his kingdom stand?]. [L For] You say that I use the power of Beelzebul to ·force [drive; cast] out demons. 19 But if I use the power of Beelzebul to ·force [drive; cast] out demons, what power do your ·people [own exorcists; followers; L sons] use to ·force [drive; cast] demons out? So they will ·be your judges.
Why do New Testament say one should have one loving partner?
Why do some religions want people to wait with sleeping together?
1.) Not only because of possible sexual transmitted diseases.
2.) But also because through the the intimate parts one can transmit demons.
Over and over people of Shem got so fascinated by the satanic magics that the descendants of Ham were performing by praying to the the sun, the stars, the devil with many names for instance baal. The Good God warned in almost every chapter several times that people should Only pray to the Good God Yahawah, they did so for a while, but the magics were more tempting, so people ignored the Good God and prefered satan and now we are here.
20:2 “I am Yah יהוה your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out
of the house of slavery. (But now there is a satanic slavery instead?)
20:3 You must not have any other gods beside me.
20:4 You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or on the earth below or in the waters under the earth.
20:5 You must not bow down to them nor be enticed to serve them, for I, Yah,
your God, am a God who requires exclusive devotion, bringing punishment for
the error of fathers upon sons, upon the third generation and upon the fourth
generation of those who hate me.
34:14 You shall worship no other god: for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous is a jealous God. World English Bible
Do not worship other gods, it says in many parts of the Holy Scriptures.
To worship other gods = satanism = black magics = voodoo.
Do not be tempted to even try, because you will only be fooled, snared in a trap by the devil.
The Magics will be taken away, to people’s devastating disadvantage. The devil ONLY borrows the magics from YAH.
The evil fallen angel lends out magics and knowledge to people who like Harry Potter enormously more than anything else.
It is a test to see who people choose:
The One and Only True Good God YAH.
You can only choose One, not both.
Stay away from all kinds of Magics which are being suggested on the internet for example.
I will destroy your witchcraft and you will no longer cast spells.
New Living Translation

Deuteronomy28:20“YAH himself will send on you curses, confusion, and frustration in everything you do, until at last you are completely destroyed for doing evil and abandoning me. 28:21YAHwill afflict you with diseases until none of you are left in the land you are about to enter and occupy. 28:22YAH will strike you with wasting diseases, fever, and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, and with blight and mildew. These disasters will pursue you until you die. 28:23The skies above will be as unyielding as bronze, and the earth beneath will be as hard as iron. 28:24YAH will change the rain that falls on your land into powder, and dust will pour down from the sky until you are destroyed.
28:25“YAH will cause you to be defeated by your enemies. You will attack your enemies from one direction, but you will scatter from them in seven! You will be an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth. 28:26Your corpses will be food for all the scavenging birds and wild animals, and no one will be there to chase them away.
28:27“YAH will afflict you with the boils of Egypt and with tumors, scurvy(/emerods), and the itch, from which you cannot be cured. 28:28YAH will strike you with madness, blindness, and panic. 28:29You will grope around in broad daylight like a blind person groping in the darkness, but you will not find your way. You will be oppressed and robbed continually, and no one will come to save you.

Exodus 23:24 You shall not bow down to their ( Amorite, the Hittite, the Perizzite, the Canaanite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite; ) gods, nor serve them, nor follow their practices, but you shall utterly overthrow them and demolish their pillars. 23:25You shall serve Yahweh your God, and He will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from your midst.
Exodus 23:32 You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. 23:33 They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against me, for if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
So what happened further on? Israel was tempted by these descendants of Ham anyway and became one of them back and forth, as I mentioned in Magics as well as King Solomon who made the mistake of falling in love with the extraordinary, exclusive, rare beauties of Ham’s descendants who put him in a snare.
World English Bible
Exodus 34:12Be careful, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you are going, lest it be for a snare in the midst of you: 13but you shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and you shall cut down their Asherim/Asherah; 14for you shall worship no other god: for Yahweh, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. 15“Don’t make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, lest they play the prostitute after their gods, and sacrifice to their gods, and one call you and you eat of his sacrifice; 16and you take of their daughters to your sons, and their daughters play the prostitute after their gods, and make your sons play the prostitute after their gods. 17“You shall make no cast idols for yourselves.

20 1-5 God spoke to Moses: “Tell the Israelites, Each and every Israelite and foreigner in Israel who gives his child to the god Molech must be put to death. The community must kill him by stoning. I will resolutely reject that man and cut him off from his people. By giving his child to the god Molech he has polluted my Sanctuary and desecrated my holy name. If the people of the land look the other way as if nothing had happened when that man gives his child to the god Molech and fail to kill him, I will resolutely reject that man and his family, and him and all who join him in prostituting themselves in the rituals of the god Molech I will cut off from their people.

29 “When Jehovah your God annihilates the nations that you are to dispossess,+ and you are living in their land, 30 be careful not to be entrapped after they have been annihilated from before you. Do not ask about their gods, saying, ‘How were these nations accustomed to serve their gods? I too will do the same.’+31 You must not do this to Yah your God, because they do for their gods every detestable thing that Jehovah hates, even burning their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods.+32 Every word that I am commanding you is what you should be careful to do.+ You must not add to it nor take away from it.+

And you must remove what is evil from your midst.+6 “If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son or your daughter or your cherished wife or your closest companion*should try to entice you in secrecy, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’+ gods that neither you nor your forefathers have known, 7 from the gods of the peoples all around you, whether near you or those far away from you, from one end of the land to the other end of the land, 8 you must not give in to him or listen to him,+ nor should you show pity or feel compassion or protect him.

The Evil one wants to be equal with the THE ETERNAL ONE AND ONLY GOD YHWH, as within Ying&Yang or Black&White or Bad & Good, why?
Because The Evil One wants to be uprised to the Skies and sit on THE ETERNAL ONE AND ONLY GOD YHWH:s Throne.
The Evil always wants to be equaled or become Higher than THE ETERNAL ONE AND ONLY GOD YHWH.
The Evil one likes to Copycat, but forgets that everything he has, do not own it, but borrows for example magics, that becomes evil/wicked when they go through the evil side.
Evil should not be equaled with good, like 50 % wickedness and 50% goodness. People should strive to perform above 50% up to 70%, and rise up to 80% and maybe up to 99% if that’s possible.
Because here is the destiny for the Evil one who is satan, lucifer, the demons:
Expanded: Isaiah 14:9 ·The place of the dead [or The grave; L Sheol] is ·excited [stirred up]
to meet you when you come.
It wakes the ·spirits of the dead [ghosts],
the ·leaders [L rams] of the world.
It makes kings of all nations
·stand up from their thrones to greet you [L rise up from their thrones].
10 All these leaders will ·make fun of you [L respond]
and will say,
“Now you are weak, as we are.
Now you are just like us.”
11 Your ·pride [or pomp; splendor] has been sent down to ·the place of the dead [or the grave; L Sheol].
The music from your harps goes with it.
·Flies [or Maggots] are spread out like your bed beneath you,
and worms cover your body like a blanket.
12 How you have fallen from heaven,
·morning star [or day star; or shining one; C still addressing the king of Babylon, though sometimes applied to Satan],
·even though you were as bright as the rising sun [L son of the dawn]!
In the past all the nations on earth ·bowed down before you [or were laid low by you],
but now you have been cut down.
The Evil one is a COPYCAT: 14:13 You told yourself,
“I will ·go up to heaven [or ascend to the sky].
I will put my throne above God’s stars.
I will ·sit [or rule] on the mountain of the gods [assembly],
on the slopes of ·the sacred mountain [or the north; or Mount Zaphon;C known as the mountain of Baal].
14 I will ·go up [ascend] above the ·tops [or high places] of the clouds.
I will be like God Most High.”
15 But you were brought down to ·the grave [or the place of the dead;L Sheol],
to the deep places ·where the dead are [L of the pit].
4-6 Can you believe it? The tyrant is gone!
The tyranny is over!
God has broken the rule of the wicked,
the power of the bully-rulers
That crushed many people.
A relentless rain of cruel outrage
Established a violent rule of anger
rife with torture and persecution.
7-10 And now it’s over, the whole earth quietly at rest.
Burst into song! Make the rafters ring!
Ponderosa pine trees are happy,
giant Lebanon cedars are relieved, saying,
“Since you’ve been cut down,
there’s no one around to cut us down.”
And the underworld dead are all excited,
preparing to welcome you when you come.
Getting ready to greet you are the ghostly dead,
all the famous names of earth.
All the buried kings of the nations
will stand up on their thrones
With well-prepared speeches,
royal invitations to death:
“Now you are as nothing as we are!
Make yourselves at home with us dead folks!”
11 This is where your pomp and fine music led you, Babylon,
to your underworld private chambers,
A king-size mattress of maggots for repose
and a quilt of crawling worms for warmth.
12 What a comedown this, O Babylon!
Daystar! Son of Dawn!
Flat on your face in the underworld mud,
you, famous for flattening nations!
13-14 You said to yourself,
“I’ll climb to heaven.
I’ll set my throne
over the stars of God.
I’ll run the assembly of angels
that meets on sacred Mount Zaphon.
I’ll climb to the top of the clouds.
I’ll take over as King of the Universe!”
15-17 But you didn’t make it, did you?
Instead of climbing up, you came down—
Down with the underground dead,
down to the abyss of the Pit.
People will stare and muse:
“Can this be the one
Who terrorized earth and its kingdoms,
turned earth to a moonscape,
Wasted its cities,
shut up his prisoners to a living death?
DO NOT LOVE satan! DO NOT LOVE evil. Yes, you can pray for your enemies, in order to not become a hater of people, but you can indeed abhor/detest your enemies’ wicked actions, you do not have to love the wickedness at all and definitely not love the demons! Be devoted/lojal to only One Good God called YAH YHWH, of Jacob. He LOVES all Noah’s kids who are willing to only pray to Him and no hokus-pokus voodoo-gods.
You can pray to GOD to help people who are suffering and to help people get insight to go out of black magic worshiping.
2Tim2:25 instructing with mildness those not favorably disposed.+ Perhaps God may give them repentance* leading to an accurate knowledge of truth,+26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the Devil, seeing that they have been caught alive by him to do his will.+
If you knew how it is to have activated satanic chips combined with real demons inside of your body and you are NOT shielded (you have no type of protection except the Bible that gives you comfort), then people would probably understand to not love demons or black satanic magics.
On youtube there are people giving credits to the kundalini wicked snake demon!
6-9 God, you’ve walked out on your family Jacob
because their world is full of hokey religion,
Philistine witchcraft, and pagan hocus-pocus,
a world rolling in wealth,
Stuffed with things,
no end to its machines and gadgets,
And gods—gods of all sorts and sizes.
These people make their own gods and worship what they make.
A degenerate race, facedown in the gutter.
Don’t bother with them! They’re not worth forgiving!
10 Head for the hills,
hide in the caves
From the terror of God,
from his dazzling presence.
11-17 People with a big head are headed for a fall,
pretentious egos brought down a peg.
It’s God alone at front-and-center
on the Day we’re talking about,
The Day that God-of-the-Angel-Armies
is matched against all big-talking rivals,
against all swaggering big names;
Against all giant sequoias
and against the expansive chestnut;
Against Kilimanjaro and Annapurna,
against the ranges of Alps and Andes;
Against every soaring skyscraper,
against all proud obelisks and statues;
Against ocean-going luxury liners,
against elegant three-masted schooners.
The swelled big heads will be punctured bladders,
the pretentious egos brought down to earth,
Leaving God alone at front-and-center
on the Day we’re talking about.
18 And all those sticks and stones
dressed up to look like gods
will be gone for good.
19 Clamber into caves in the cliffs,
duck into any hole you can find.
Hide from the terror of God,
from his dazzling presence,
When he assumes his full stature on earth,
towering and terrifying.
20-21 On that Day men and women will take
the sticks and stones
They’ve decked out in gold and silver
to look like gods and then worshiped,
And they will dump them
in any ditch or gully,
Then run for rock caves
and cliff hideouts
To hide from the terror of God,
from his dazzling presence,
When he assumes his full stature on earth,
towering and terrifying.
