Occult Bondage and Deliverance - Recommend Reading

Books by Kurt E. Koch, Th.D

Kurt E. Koch (1913-1987) is regarded by many to have been the world's leading authority on the occult. He received his Doctor of Theology degree from Tubingen University and was a noted German theologian, minister, and evangelist. He pastored and counseled those suffering from the occult in its various forms throughout the world, covering sixty-five countries and five continents.

I first heard of Kurt E. Koch and his books in the late 1980's through Johanna Michaelsen. Thirty years later, I still value these books over all the books I have ever read on the topics of occult bondage and deliverance. 

Just some of the things you will learn through books by Kurt E. Koch:
  • Clarification of what constitutes the occult.  
  • Why it is so dangerous to “dabble” in anything of occult nature.
  • The effects (fruits) of  “dabbling” in anything of occult nature.
  • Gifts of The Holy Spirit or Mediumistic gifts?
  • Why it is imperative that every Christian renounce and repent of all occult involvement, supernatural gifts (abilities) and renounce ancestral ties.
  • (There are Christians who are unknowingly practicing witchcraft.)

Books by Johanna Michaelsen

Johanna Michaelsen will always have a special place in my heart for writing the book that gave me the courage to trust in the name of Jesus Christ and to call upon Him to literally deliver me from Satan. Thank you, Johanna for all you have done for me. May God Richly Bless you. May your testimony continue to bring many more souls out of the kingdom of darkness and into the Kingdom of Light, that of Jesus Christ. 

About Johanna: She is a highly sought-after speaker for seminars, radio, and television. Her acclaimed autobiography, The Beautiful Side of Evil, has given her wide recognition as a foremost authority on the inner workings of the occult in today's society.

The Beautiful Side of Evil  by Johanna Michaelsen:
Are all miracles from God, or is there a beautiful side of evil? The blind see, the deaf hear, and the lame walk. Is God always behind such miracles, or can there be another source?

This is a true account of a young woman who, while in search of spiritual truth, became a personal assistant to a psychic surgeon in Mexico for 14 months. Then, in answer to her prayers, God revealed the true source behind the miraculous healings she witnessed. Lifting the veil of deception, He allowed her to see the evil behind the outward appearance of beauty and holiness. Johanna Michaelsen reveals how this deadly deception is not isolated to her unusual experience but rather is invading our everyday lives, even our churches.

My personal note: I highly recommend this book. It was by reading this book that I was able to finally SEE and accept the Truth that I was indeed serving the "Lords of Darkness". The most deceptive tactic of Satan and his servants is to create the illusion of beauty, perfection, purity, and Holiness.

I recently re-read "The Beautiful Side of Evil" and realized that this book is even more relevant today than when Johanna wrote it! I am alarmed at how much of the occult practices are presently being taught and promoted by professing "Christians". I am equally alarmed at the numbers of Christians who are blindly following these servants of Satan and are now practicing the occult.  

TEST THE SPIRITS !!! How can you ever know what is not of God if you are busy following after other voices???

People need to go back to the Bible, read it in context, ask God to open the eyes of their understanding. People need to seek God with their whole heart and follow after Jesus Christ! and not some modern day "prophet" who twists and tortures the scriptures to make it say something it does not!

Like Lambs To The Slaughter: Your Child and The Occult

Dungeons and Dragons, Saturday Morning Cartoons, Star Wars, E.T., Yoga, Spirit Guides, Guided Imagery & Visualization, Storybooks On Witchcraft and the Occult: Are these merely innocent, fun filled activities for kids designed to expand creativity and intelligence, or are these the subtle influences that are leading our children Like Lambs To The Slaughter.

This urgent appeal for awareness by best-selling author Johanna Michaelsen takes the concerned parent into the world of the innocent child by exploring and exposing the growing power of the occult in the lives of our children. Leaders in this New Age of Humanism intend to employ every means at their disposal to turn the hearts and minds of children away from fundamental Christian values and beliefs. 

This timely and welcome work by Johanna Michaelsen gives parents tools to counter the growing influence of the occult in their children's lives.
