And behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. And he said to me, "O Daniel, man greatly loved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for now I have been sent to you." And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. Then he said to me, "Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and humbled yourself before your God, your words have been heard, and I have come because of your words. -- Daniel 10:10-12 (ESV)
Binding and loosing -- How to Employ Angels to do God's Will on Earth. Sometimes the sheer idiocy of an article title makes you stop and linked above you will find this article. I expected this to be written by angel fetishist Jennifer Leclaire but instead it is Charity Virkler Kayembe, a Christian author who penned it. One of the favorite topics for Charismaniacs has always been angels. The aforementioned Leclaire loves to pretend to release angels to do her bidding and apparently Kazembe believes similarly. Let us reason together through this article and see where she goes off the rails.
"Are you looking for a way to get through to your unsaved friend or child or parent, but there seems to be a spiritual block as they just don't see, hear or respond? Well, there probably is a spiritual wall there, and you can impact it through binding and loosing, partnering with the company of heaven. "Binding" is tying up demonic forces, and "loosing" is commissioning angelic forces and releasing the Holy Spirit to convict one's heart. God always leads us in this process." -- Charity Kayembe
We often times speak about the first sin recorded; the sin of Lucifer wanting to be God and how he deceived Eve into desiring the same thing. It comes up frequently because so many of the sins of the day are essentially the same thing. Who draws and convicts the unsaved beloved? The Holy Spirit does. Yet Kayembe is selling the notion that YOU can be like God and tear down the spiritual blocks that she claims is preventing them from coming to Christ. Who is God in that equation?
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed[d] in heaven." -- Matthew 16:19
This is the verse regarding binding and loosing. Kayembe makes the same mistake that all angel obsessed Charismaniacs make and that is who is God. The plan is God's plan, not ours. In the minds of false teachers we dictate to God but that is not how it actually works. Consider the Amplified Bible read on this:
