Many Christians have a habit of putting things they do not understand the category of “witchcraft”, and even “sorcery”, without further investigation. Distance muscle testing is one of those things people do not understand. Some even call it “voodoo”.
After all, the concept that something can be controlled by distance may be rather far-fetched. Do you think so? Would you like to explore whether this is witchcraft?
Or could this possibly be a tool based on cutting-edge science, given to us since the dawn of creation?
Shall we sort this out?
Let us start with things being “far-fetched”. Maybe you are too young to remember the Dick Tracey cartoons that featured a watch that looked like a phone. I remember as a young girl looking at those cartoons and thinking to myself how far-fetched that was that Dick Tracy could speak into his watch that was functioning as a phone. But now, we have come to a place where this is “normal”.
This is so old that it is new. There is one commercial now that features a woman speaking into her watch to activate something. So what was far-fetched fifty years ago is now trendy.
So let us now begin with at what science has proven regarding brain to brain communication.
In August of 2014 a paper was published with the title:
Conscious Brain to Brain Communication In Humans Using Non-Invasive Technologies. 1.
This study demonstrates the conscious transmission of information between human brains.
You can watch that video here:
Or how about this article: “Wheelchair Makes The Most Of Brain Control” which is about a wheelchair system that can give paralyzed people more mobility using only the thoughts coming from their brain. 2.
Oh, but that is not a great enough distance for you? How about what DARPA is doing? The USA Department of National Defense research arm is “paying scientists to invent ways to instantly read soldier’s minds … to create thought control weapons.” This article was published on May 23, 2019, by Live Science.3. If the government is taking the idea of thoughts being transmitted through space as a serious consideration, then folks, this is the stuff of science.
So let us ask this question again. Is it witchcraft to do distance muscle testing?
Well, we see from the above that it is proven that our brains can communicate one to another, a wheelchair can be propelled by mind control, and the government is developing ways of having a soldier control his weapon with just his mind. So the mind has then been shown to be able to communicate information from a distance.
So it appears that thoughts cannot be limited by distance.
Science of Thought
Dr. Caroline Leaf in her TEDx talk spoke about the power of thought to change our brains and that thought travels vast distances in a split second. She is unabashedly Christian as well as a world-renown neuroscientist. Here is a link to her video speaking about this topic:
Dr. Caroline Leaf also said: Every thought influences every single cell of your body at quantum speed which is much faster than the speed of light. Your thinking changes the physical. Mind is over matter. Mind influences matter.
Note: Dr. Caroline Leaf is a Cognitive Neuroscientist with a Ph.D. in Communication Pathology and a BSc in Logopedics and Audiology
So are we calling “distance muscle testing” witchcraft just because we are having difficulty wrapping our minds around the concept of thoughts being able to travel and accomplish something they were intended to accomplish?
Or is “distance muscle testing” part of the science that God created?
What would “scripture” have to say about this?
In the beginning, God spoke. And it was. Genesis 1:3
He was not holding play dough in his hand and physically forming the earth. No, he spoke and vast distances became populated with matter and form, including our earth and everything in it. His thoughts and verbal commands traveled across space and affected matter. See also Heb 11:3.
And we were made in his image. On the sixth day. And He said it was “very good”.
He purposed within to make all things; he then spoke. He has given us this same ability as we are also made in His image.
In the beginning, we were told to subdue and master. In short, we were given dominion.
We have dominion because we are, after all, made in his image. To do as He did.
How Powerful Are Words (speaking)?
They are so powerful that we will be held accountable for the words we speak. Matt: 12:36
How Powerful Are Thoughts & Intent?
Thoughts are so powerful that we are told that even to think about doing something, is the same as doing it. Matt 5:27-28
Are Words, Thought & Intent all the same?
Yes. Just to drive home the point here about the relationship between thought, words, and intent, consider this. In Genesis 1:3 where it says: “God spoke”, that word for “spoke” in the original Hebrew language is “amar” which means to "say, speak,(voice) answer, think (thought) or intend." 4.
Therefore, Based On The Original Hebrew Words Of “God Spoke”, We Conclude:
By going back to the original language, we can see there is no difference in speaking, thought and intention. This is another way we can conclude that even just the intention of doing distance muscle testing can be just as powerful as being there in person. Why is that? Because as the creator himself is, so are we - as we are made in his image.
Shall we demonstrate the power of words (speaking/voice), thoughts and intent?
From scripture, of course!
What Would Jesus Do?
There are three accounts of Jesus healing from a distance, using thoughts, words and intent. Note: thought must precede words and action.
The first account:
The first one involves a government official from Capernaum who had a sick son. John 4:43. While Jesus was in Cana, this official traveled the 15 to 20 miles to Cana to find Jesus to implore him to come to Capernaum with him to heal his son. How did Jesus respond? He told him to go back home, that his son would live. So the man turned around and began to go home. He was met along the way and told that his son was indeed healed at the very hour that he was told he was. That was a distance of 15 to 20 miles. Not very far in our day and time when we can travel that in a few minutes. This was likely a journey of about a day at that time.
The second account:
A gentile woman had a daughter at home that was possessed by an evil spirit. Mark 7:24 The mother came and fell at the feet of Jesus and begged him to release her child from the control of the demon. What was the answer she was given? “Because you have answered so well, I have healed your daughter." And so the mother found her daughter freed from the demon when she got home.
We read in both Matthew and Luke about the centurion in Capernaum who had a sick servant who was paralyzed and suffering terribly. He was a member of the hated Roman occupation, yet he valued Israel and helped built the local synagogue and so was esteemed among them. As Jesus was on his way at the request of respected Jewish leaders who were sent to fetch him, this centurion sent some friends to tell Jesus that he was “unworthy” to receive him, yet he knew that just a word from where Jesus was would be sufficient to heal his servant. And so it was. When his friends returned home they found the servant completely healed.
Note about the three distance healings:
The first one was reminded of his small faith (for insisting on Jesus being physically present). The other two were commended for their faith, even though one spoke of himself as “unworthy”.
The woman with a sick daughter needed deliverance of a demon which puts her in a very different category. The fact that the mother and the daughter were women would have normally put them at a disadvantage to gaining favor. Adding to the remarkable compassion of Jesus, he healed even someone who was greatly disregarded and put down by the members of his people as she was of a different nationality – a big thing in those days.
In all three accounts of distance healing, we read that the effect was immediate.
Fulfilling Old Testament
We are told in Psalm 107:20 "He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions."
This has been fulfilled in the days of Jesus. He is our example.
Furthermore, He told us:
John 14:12 Anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works.
We are to follow his example. From a distance, he was able to affect the physical realm and cause people to regain what they had lost. Are you doing that yet?
But step back a notch here. Before we speak, we must formulate a thought. The thought comes before the action.
So it is in “distance muscle testing”. We “connect” with the person before we do the action of the testing.
The Conclusion Of Putting Science And Scripture Together To Answer The Question About “Distance Muscle Testing”.
We have seen that there are experiments that demonstrate that thoughts can travel vast distances instantaneously. And we have heard from Dr. Caroline Leaf who has spent her career proving how thoughts affect matter.
Then we still have a great commission in effect from the beginning to rule and subdue. We also have been shown the way of doing that through the life of Jesus who told us to do what he had done. He ruled over dysfunction and destruction both in person and by distance.
So we see that distance is no barrier at all.
And for that last, lingering question which might be: how can we “connect” to someone by a distance? The answer to that is short. In 100 seconds, you can see the proof of how everything is connected to everything else. It is simply, quantum physics in the application; created by God for us to have dominion over his creation. For those who have to see to believe, this is your answer. View here.
One Word of Caution
As with everything, Satan is the great deceiver and has twisted everything possible. This tool can also be misused and twisted and Dr. Bradley warns about that.
#1 We are not to do any work on anyone without their express permission. If we were to do that, we would then step into the realm of "witchcraft".
#2 We are not to try to forecast the future in any way.
This is only to access the information already in the energy field of a person, rather similar to accessing the computer hard drive information on your computer.
So how we use the tool is also important to keep it pure.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I would like to close with a quote from Dr. Caroline Leaf:
“God made everything and science is simply the description of everything.”
Therefore, we can conclude the following: "distance muscle testing" is just another one of God's creations.
There will be additional articles released soon on how to boost our Emotion Code results using Christian prayer, as well as featuring specific prayers for specific needs.
Hope to see you again, then!
You might be surprised to learn that Mark Virkler Ph.D., founder of Communion With God Ministries has written an article called Muscle Responsive Testing.
