Secret society cults targeting Christians

The following coin (also depicted in my book Esoteric Coin, A Numismatic Study) shows Roman Emperor Hadrian's face and on the reverse is depicted the Cult statue(idol and image) of Artemis (also known as Diana of Ephesus) which was at the centre of the riot in Ephesus as recorded in Acts 19:23-29.

Such Secret Society Cults have always been used by the enemy satan to lure, seduce, infiltrate and attack the children of God. Some of the cults date back to ancient days and are still in operation today. In the new testament, Paul encountered one such cult in the city of Ephesus. The cult members were so infuriated with Paul and began  to riot. This incident is clearly recorded in Acts 19:23-29.

The Riot in Ephesus:

"23 About that time there arose a great disturbance about the Way. 24 A silversmith named Demetrius, who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought in a lot of business for the craftsmen there. 25 He called them together, along with the workers in related trades, and said: "You know, my friends, that we receive a good income from this business. 26 And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that gods made by human hands are no gods at all. 27 There is danger not only that our trade will lose its good name, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be discredited; and the goddess herself, who is worshiped throughout the province of Asia and the world, will be robbed of her divine majesty."
28 When they heard this, they were furious and began shouting: "Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!" 29 Soon the whole city was in an uproar. The people seized Gaius and Aristarchus, Paul's traveling companions from Macedonia, and all of them rushed into the theater together."

The Acts 19 incident reveals the following
1.    There was a temple of the cult of Artemis in Ephesus
2.    There was a venerated cult statue of the so called goddess Artemis in the Ephesus temple
3.    Silversmiths like Demetrius made lots of money selling silver shrines of Artemis
4.    The idol of Artemis was worshipped in throughout the Roman province of Asia and the world.
5.    The temple of Artemis would have made blood sacrifices in her temple which was customary for idol worshiping temples
6.    The temple of Artemis would likely have hosted the cult prostitutes to service the worshipers
7.    Divinations and wicked incarnations would have taken place at the temple
8.    Many people would have travelled from afar to go to worship there
9.    The temple of Artemis would have had priests, priestesses and temple servants
10.    The temple of Artemis would have been wealthy and influential

History records that even Roman Emperor Hadrian visited the cult temple of Artemis and worshipped the idol with pomp and prestige. He would have made blood sacrifice there and sought divinations from the oracle temple priests and priestesses. Emperor Hadrian was bisexual and would have slept with the temple prostitutes as this was customary.

The bible clearly says in 2 Corinthians 6: 16, "…What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?.."

Therefore those who worship such idols are worshiping satan, for it is written in
1 Corinthians 10:20, "On the contrary, the things which the Gentiles (pagans) sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons [in effect], and not to God; and I do not want you to become partners with demons [by eating at feasts in pagan temples."

So the demon worshiping secret society cults like that of Diana are still in operation today and their goal is to lure, seduce, infiltrate and attack the children of God. Many servants of Jesus have already been lured and initiated into these secret cults and that is why they have changed the original gospel of the blood of Jesus and are now preaching what tickles the flesh.

The bible clearly warns in 1 Timothy 4:1 that, "The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons."




Many so called pastors, prophets, prophetesses today are essentially secret members of such cults and have received demonic spirits of divination which they prophesy through and they are earning lots of money and have multitudes of followers. They are no different from the girl with the spirit of divination who was irritating the Paul and the apostles.

Acts 16:16-20, "16 It happened that as we were on our way to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave-girl who had a spirit of divination [that is, a demonic spirit claiming to foretell the future and discover hidden knowledge], and she brought her owners a good profit by fortune-telling. 17 She followed after Paul and us and kept screaming and shouting, "These men are servants of the Most High God! They are proclaiming to you the way of salvation!" 18 She continued doing this for several days. Then Paul, being greatly annoyed and worn out, turned and said to the spirit [inside her], "I command you in the name of Jesus Christ [as His representative] to come out of her!" And it came out at that very moment.19 But when her owners saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them before the authorities in the market place [where trials were held], 20 and when they had brought them before the chief magistrates, they said, "These men, who are Jews, are throwing our city into confusion and causing trouble."

Today such slave girls (who are slaves to sin) have infiltrated the church and are become high ranking prophetesses and church congregants ! The church seems to have no authority to command the spirit of demons to come out! But now, if the christian is willing to REPENT and turn away from all sin, THE LORD JESUS will restore the authority to cast out demons!

Those who want to disconnect from the seductions, infiltration's and attacks of the demonic occult, let us REPENT and RETURN TO JESUS right away!

Say,

Dear JESUS, MIGHTY GOD, I am a sinner. I have been infiltrated by demons. I have been infiltrated by secret cults. Disconnect me JESUS from the kingdom of satan. Expose the enemies of your Kingdom who are hidden as christians. Disconnect me and my family from occult influences. Fill me with your HOLY SPIRIT and give us the authority to cast out the demons in your name. Today, In the name of JESUS, I repent of heeding demonic teachings and occult philosophies. I am born again today in Jesus name and I repent of sexual sin, perversion, idolatry and all wickedness. Amen.

Blessing.
LORD JESUS bless all who have repented here. Bless them with your HOLY SPIRIT. Separate them from the wicked one. Use them to do battle against the enemy. Protect and watch over them JESUS. Lead them not into temptation but deliver them from all wickedness. Write and Keep their names in the  BOOK OF LIFE and REMEMBER them when you establish your KINGDOM. SO BE IT. AMEN.
