The other day, a non-Christian acquaintance from my old community told me they were making a fairy door for their tree outside, and I said "What is that?" It seems that this is a new trend where people will make little miniature doors, and windows and rooms for would be "fairies". They will use bottom crevices in trees often to put these doors. I found myself very disturbed by this.
Some towns have made these art installations for the entire town. Even their town library has little
doors spread among it's shelves for the fairies. That's kind of creepy. What would you think to walk down a street and see little miniature doors and rooms that no humans could enter? Also take note
of how they leave coins for the fairies.
This is now a popular trend with people putting these things in their trees and decorating their yards and gardens with fairy doors, sometimes called Gnome Doors too....
The world thinks this stuff is cute fantasy but what is a fairy or faerie as they are known in the occult?
Ever hear of wood, water sprites? of elementals? of "lights" out in nature? Some claim they see little lights or orbs. Faeries are known to be connected to magic. Faerie magic is a known subject in Wicca. There are magic spells to call up faeries [aka demons]. There are herbs and magical properties that go along with the faeries or "little folk".
Here is a definition of fairies. Obviously they are considered SPIRITS even in the occult realm.
"Definition from "Funk & Wagnalls Multimedia Encyclopedia"-- "a diminutive supernatural creature, generally in human form, dwelling in an imaginary region called fairyland; and the stories of its interventionsthrough magic in mortal affairs.The term fairy is also loosely applied to such beings as brownies, gnomes, elves, nixies, goblins, trolls, dwarfs, pixies, kobolds, banshees, sylphs, sprites, and undines. The folk imagination not only conceives of fairyland as a distinct domain, but also imagines fairies as living in everyday surroundings such as hills, trees, and streams and sees fairy rings, fairy tables, and fairy steeds in natural objects. The belief in fairies was an almost universal attribute of early folk culture. In ancient Greek literature the sirens in Homer’s Odyssey are fairies, and a number of the heroes in his Iliad have fairy lovers in the form of nymphs. The Gandharvas (celestial singers and musicians), who figure in Sanskrit poetry, were fairies, as were the Hathors, or female genii, of ancient Egypt, who appeared at the birth of a child and predicted the child’s future."
One thing I noticed is some dictionaries listed fairies as "imaginary creatures full of mischief", in other words "not real". I am sure some would read this post and think it crazy that someone would protest the building of fairy doors and little doorways spread around a town for fairies to move into. But how many places in our society are we told that spirits aren't real and that dabbling with the spirit realm is just child's play and FOR FUN? How many times do lost people invite the occult in under the guise of fantasy and fiction or just playing a game? Why are human beings so fascinated by the idea of little creatures who have powers superior to human beings moving into cracks in their trees or little doll-houses they have set up for them? Talk about an invitation to false spirits. Talk about leading children into vain imaginations. That's what that Santa Claus and Easter Bunny stuff does too.
2 Corinthians 10:5
King James Version (KJV)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Makes you wonder about FAIRY TALES? Named for the fairies, maybe they aren't so good. That would be a subject for another post.
I believe that demons shape-shift, in various forms, and that fairies definitely would be one of those forms during human history. Today one form are aliens. There is a reason they never have found a UFO with little green men to take to the lab. Those are sometimes spiritual manifestations in my opinion. [Of course with Project Blue Beam and other deceptive forces among human beings there is a lot of planned trickery as well]
Many mystical creatures are demons shape-shifting throughout history. If the creature is "metaphysical", has special powers, etc, then watch out! Leprechauns, Gnomes, Elves, Fairies, Goblins, Aliens, etc. Perhaps even Big Foot and some of the other creatures seen out there beyond what the tricksters are up to. While yes, they can be just imaginative and not a physical manifestation of a spirit, I believe there is a reason the theme of their existence crops up in all human societies. Demons have shown up to deceive and mislead. These creatures are demonic and as they have appeared in history to people they are just shape-shifted variations on demons.
In the 1970's, Gnomes were celebrated. I owned this book and even collected Gnomes and as a child I imagined "What if they were real?" My relatives bought me Tom Clark Gnome statues for Christmas. We sold off the Gnomes before I became a Christian or realized the truth about Gnomes. One thing about Gnomes, they were praised even in the Gnomes book for having magic powers. You may want to rethink the next time you buy a garden gnome to decorate your yard with.
All those Gnome statues had coins attached to them. What did that mean? Trolls and pot of gold go together and so does money and Gnomes.
People take for granted how much all these little would be " metaphysical" creatures are part of the secular world and imaginations. House decor, decorations, garden decorations, wind chimes, Tinkerbelle, naming little girl scouts Brownies--Why on earth do little girls have to say this to a mirror on the floor ?
Of course the LOGO itself has the ELF/BROWNIE in it. [picture cite]
"brownies" which may make you wonder about the Girl Scouts choosing that as the name for their younger members. [Warning on link. it is a witchcraft website]
"In 1703, John Brand wrote in his description of Zetland that:
- “Not above forty or fifty years ago, every family had a brownie, or evil spirit, so called, which served them, to which they gave a sacrifice for his service; as when they churned their milk, they took a part thereof, and sprinkled every corner of the house with it, for Brownie’s use; likewise, when they brewed, they had a stone which they called ‘Brownie’s stane’, wherein there was a little hole into which they poured some wort for a sacrifice to Brownie. They also had some stacks of corn, which they called Brownie’s Stacks, which, though they were not bound with straw ropes, or in any way fenced as other stacks used to be, yet the greatest storm of wind was not able to blow away straw off them.”
Then let's take false holidays like Christmas, where they focus on ELVES:
There is a popular trend out there called ELF on a SHELF, that is like this fairy door nonsense. Based on a 2005 book, this is a new tradition where people are buying elves to "watch" over their children and get them to behave:
There a child is taught legalism and indoctrinated into more false Christmas traditions. Basically the Elf on the Shelf is like NSA and Santa [Satan Claws] rolled up into one. As everyone here knows I have posted against Christmas multiple times. Christmas has witchcraft as part of it, that is because it is based on paganism at it's core. "Christmas magic" is a phrase oft used."The poetic story dictates that the elf's main priority around the family's household is to keep watch over the children's behavior during the day and return to the North Pole overnight to report their behavior to Santa Claus, detailing any acts of obedience or misdeeds performed by a child during that particular day, returning home by the following morning.Starting from the day following Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, the elf remains with its family to ensure that they behave properly throughout the holidays. However, the top policy regarding the Elf on the Shelf is to refrain from touching the creature, as doing so could permanently erase any Christmas magic with which the elf had been bestowed upon being named by the family. It is no longer capable of fulfilling its duties of recounting the events of the day to Santa Claus, cautioning that he may or may not learn about a child's behavior should the Elf on the Shelf be stripped of its holiday enchantment. Every day, the elf's position changes, providing the family with the responsibility of locating its current perch before its departure for the year on Christmas Eve."
So why are people so into this stuff? All these "creatures" in every world culture, are credited with magic powers. The Bible warns us against witchcraft time and time again.
Isaiah 19:3 - And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.
It's like Disney world, the worse of the occult and obvious witchcraft is infused into the culture. No one even questions this stuff. My space was limited here but I could provide endless other examples.
Obviously if one reads through legends and more in other world cultures, these are "beings" called upon for the use of magic and to "fix problems" and also seen as the cause of problems as well as help at a price to human beings. In "fairy tales", very few pray to God, they seek after false spirits and beings.
In fairy tales, elves, fairies, leprechauns, brownies are called upon to aid humans and they all require a spell or a price in every fairy tale I ever have read. So why are these creatures celebrated by Christians in too many instances? Why do they buy their child a fairy-princess bedroom set, or buy a set of Gnomes for the garden? Trust me I know these are some things that may not even occur to some folks until pointed out. I know some are going to be outraged by this article, telling me I am legalistic and in disbelief that I am even addressing this issue, but if you know God's mandates regarding spirits and witchcraft, why celebrate characters that are associated with BOTH?
