Supernatural Principalities And Powers

If you think that witchcraft, demons, and magic are bizarre but harmless nonsense... Dr. Lester Sumrall exposes the frightening reality of evil spirits-and tells you how to remain free from their pervasive influence-in this disturbing overview of satanic strategies.

Misconceptions about the devil abound. There are those who write off his existence as simple superstition. Others believe he exists but hold bizarre views of who he is and what he can do. He has been painted variously by artists as a grotesque creature with flaming breath, a little imp with cloven feet, and a hideous, fantastic monster with wings and claws. But Satan is real. He is not a joke or a myth. He is not a little red man with a tail and horns and a trident. Nor is he, as some believe, an impersonal power, a mere negative influence. Rather he is an intelligent, powerful, and evil being, ruler of the world of darkness. He is hard at work in contemporary society. I wrote this book because I sense a great need to expose the works of Satan all around us. He is striving feverishly in the world, and we can see it in the increase of witchcraft, Satan worship, spiritualism, and interest in the occult. The word occult comes from a Latin word that means "hidden, secret." Satan loves to work in secret, hidden from the light. Paul wrote to the Corinthians that when the Lord comes, He "will bring to light the hidden things of darkness" (1 Cor. 4:5). Satan fears that kind of exposure, like the vermin under a rock fear the light; therefore, exposure is often the most effective tool against the occult. At the same time, I admit that there is a tension between the need to expose the things of darkness, and the danger that putting the works of Satan in the limelight can arouse harmful curiosity. Paul wrote to the Ephesians, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret" (Eph. 5:11-12). I am convinced that the majority of people have no concept of the shameful things--many too vile to describe--that go on in the world of the occult. It is a dark, devious, dangerous world that lures unsuspecting people into satanic bondage. So while I must discourage investigation simply to satisfy idle curiosity, I encourage concerned believers to become informed about the dangers of the occult. Knowing the truth is the best way to avoid falling for a lie.
