“Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth unseen, both when we
and when we sleep.” — John Milton, Paradise Lost, A.D. 1667.
With witchcraft sweeping the world, it might surprise you that one of
chief proponents of this New Age “religion” is none other than TV’s
personality, Oprah Winfrey along with her friend, Maya Angelou.
Blasphemy, you say!
How can someone criticize the media darlings?
To justify this premise, you have to go beyond the daily fare served
Oprah, an individual who was raised in a Christian, Bible-believing
environment even though suffering through child abuse.
She is known for her good works that most of us have adopted.
Do a good deed a day, just like the Boy Scouts.
Sympathy pours out of her mouth and out of her purse. She is the

Remembering your spirit.
It makes one grow warm and fuzzy, doesn’t it?
However, it conflicts with God’s Word and with what the Holy Spirit
There are many spirits in this world that have become legion as the
millennium approaches and the soon return of Jesus Christ (God in the
flesh) and “your spirit” is just another one from the age of the New
spawned by Satan himself. Before he fell, Satan was known as Lucifer,
brightest and the best in the heavenlies.
So besides loosing a legion of demons on this battered planet, Satan
loosed a legion of benevolent spirits that distracts the six billion
from the truth.
Would you listen to demonic spirits?
Mass murderers do, child molesters do, but when someone is espousing
and peace and bettering oneself, how can one resist such sweetness and
Now, I love Oprah, but the message she’s giving comes straight from
pits of hell.
In the preface of the 1972 bestseller, “Satan Is Alive and Well on
Earth,” prolific author Hal Lindsey wrote: “When God judged the crimes
of Lucifer, He changed his name to Satan, the Evil One. Satan means ‘the
resister’ or ‘adversary’; the name ‘Devil’ means ‘the accuser and
Satan was sentenced to eternal banishment. In Matthew 25:41, Jesus
that hell was created for the Devil and his angels.
After God pronounced Satan’s judgment, His first act was to clear off
of the planets of the universe, beautify it, and call it “earth.” This
little planet was to become the arena of the mightiest contest of all
a contest where God Himself would be wounded in a life-and-death
with the powers of darkness. God had a plan, a method to resolve this
pre-history rebellion led by Satan, which involved the creation of
creature with whom all of you are familiar.
While most choose to ignore the spiritual warfare that is raging,
nevertheless, it’s a reality.
Satan knows his days are numbered, for Jesus will return soon, so
creature has scattered his evil minions throughout the earth; however,
of them don’t have the grotesque faces of a crazed killer.
In order for such demonic spirits to be accepted, he has placed his
“servants” in high positions to deceive the “elect” — believers in

evil and Oprah or Maya or the countless people, who are honest and
to the core, but their New Age “volunteerism” is a diversion from their
reliance on their Creator — Jesus Christ — and in the Holy Spirit. All
other spirits, including “your spirit” are false.
“But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the
opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as
are in the things of which we boast. For such are false prophets,
workers, transforming them into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For
Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.” — 2
One of Oprah’s favorite authors is Gary Zukav, author of “The Seat of
Soul” and “The Dancing Wu Li Masters.”
Of “The Seat of the Soul,” publisher Simon and Schuster commented:
lucidity and grace, Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species
pursues authentic power — power that is based upon the perceptions and
values of the spirit. He shows how the pursuit of external power has
produced our survival-of the-fittest understanding of evolution,
conflict between lovers, communities, and superpowers and brought us to
the edge of destruction.
“Using his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows how
infusing the activities of life with reverence, compassion, and trust
them come alive with meaning and purpose. He illustrates how the
values of the spirit are changing marriages into spiritual partnerships,
psychology into spiritual psychology, and transforming our everyday
‘The Seat of the Soul’ describes the remarkable journey to the spirit
each of us is on.”
Fine, believable words. Right? Wrong.
These “your spirit” theories ignore the believer’s chief admonition:
rely on the Holy Spirit and not on man-made philosophies, or should I
Satan-inspired philosophies. Also did you notice that not once did Zukav
mention the name of Jesus?
Zukav also likens the soul to a ship on the ocean. He describes on
website (www.oprah.com) our personality as one ship in a fleet, and
our soul as a mother ship who knows where you’re going. Your personality
can choose to sail in the opposite direction of the mother ship, though
Zukav says, “That’s a sure way to encounter rough water.” As you sail in
the same direction, however, your life becomes filled with purpose and
meaning. And it’s meaning that is the inner compass that we can (and
learn to know).
The Bible says Jesus is the only way to the Father.
Now, one of the most popular programs on TV preaches a New Age
religion of relying on doing a kind deed a day, filling the world’s
largest piggy bank
and mixing it with Mother Ships and other claims that surely if followed
places one in the fires of hell for all eternity.
“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs
wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” — Matthew 24:24.

“When you come into the land which the Lord is giving you, you shall
learn to follow the abominations of those nations. There shall not be
among you anyone who makes his son or daughter pass through the fire, or
one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets
or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist,
one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an
