Spiritual Warfare Forum: Harry Potter -the doorman to the occult & Satan's playground
Harry Potter -the doorman to the occult & Satan's playground QUESTION from Cathy on November 15, 2001 Dear Friend,
What an answer to prayer as you have provided real documentation I can use against the promotion of the Harry Potter Madness as a tool for sowing the seeds of the Gospel. (Catechist Magazine, March 2001, written by Mary Margaret Keaton, 4th grade catechist in Northern Virgina). This article was passed out to us Catechists last night at our church to use as a way to help teach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
As a baptized Christian Catholic, confirmed and regularly in prayer, instantly the spirit of wisdom and discernment rose up in righteous anger over what I was actually reading! When I was a teen, I too went to Catholic school, but in the afternoons, at 4pm, I watched the soap, Dark Shadows- no one told me any different. I played w/ ouji boards ( felt funny about them and eventually stopped). My mother sought out palmist and we experimented w/ saounces(sorry I don't know how to spell the word). As an adult I experienced the reaping of both; the hunger to know God more personally and then, unexpectedly the torment of the enemy where places of dominion had been innocently turned over to him in places such as my imagination, my mind, feelings and emotions. Matthew 13: 24-30, (the parable of the weeds).
As I sought to fight this enemy w/in me with desperation, the Holy Spirit showed me where I sinned and I went into deep repentance and grieving of the Holy Spirit. I inadvertantly allowed Satan to enter into my soul, through my imagination, desire to know the unknown and just plain curiosity & boredom. He became the Oppressor of my Soul, my Spirit, my countenance, my attitude, all those things that ought to be worshipping our Lord, I gave him dominion over. I needed a Savior, I had turned my back on God and sought other gods. God's word stands true and explicit, Stay away!-Turn from all evil. 1Peter5:8-9, Be Alert, Self-Controlled, for your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour...
Please let people know the truth by continuing to keep this website on and filled w/ information, for God's word says,My People perish from lack of knowledge. We are to be filled with the living, true word of God, our foundations built upon Jesus Christ, the way, the truth and the life. Innocent souls are at stake because so many are seeking their way and not the Lord's way. Genesis 2:6 - When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then their eyes were opened, and they realized they were naked;
As a watchman on the tower (Ezekiel) this is a warning: Stay away from Harry Potter and all that is evil and an abomination to God, our heavenly Father, who is Holy and calls us to be holy, and seperate, set aside unto his own purpose. Sanctification and Consecreation to the Cross of Jesus Christ. Amen. I am so humbled and I pray the truth shines forth during this time of darkness and deception.
May God Bless you and May His face shine upon you... Cathy
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on February 10, 2002 Dear Mrs. Cathy:
Thank you. People who have their socks knocked off if they knew what we had to go through to keep this website and apostolate open and operational. The enemy does not like us.
EVERYDAY, and I mean everyday, I am attacked by people or by things unseen. I have even been slandered by some Church authorities and there are some people who have called for my death.
We need your prayers and we will pray for you.
As for Harry Potter, St. Joseph's Covenant Keepers (www.dads.org) has an excellent artcle about this.
