Baal worship was rooted in sensuality and involved in ritualistic prostitution in the temples. At times, appeasing Baal required human sacrifice usually the firstborn of the one making the sacrifice (Jeremiah 19:5). The priests of Baal appealed to their god in rites of wild abandon which included loud, ecstatic cries and self-inflicted injury (1 Kings 18:28).
Before the Hebrews entered the Promised Land, the Lord God warned against worshiping Canaan’s gods (Deuteronomy 6:14-15), but Israel turned to idolatry anyway. During the reign of Ahab and Jezebel, at the height of Baal worship in Israel, God directly confronted the paganism through His prophet Elijah. First, God showed that He, not Baal, controlled the rain by sending a drought lasting three-and-one-half years (1 Kings 17:1). Then Elijah called for a showdown on Mt. Carmel to prove once and for all who the true God was. All day long, 450 prophets of Baal called on their god to send fire from heaven—surely an easy task for a god associated with lightning bolts—but “there was no response, no one answered, no one paid attention” (1 Kings 18:29). After Baal’s prophets gave up, Elijah prayed a simple prayer, and God answered immediately with fire from heaven. The evidence was overwhelming, and the people “fell prostrate and cried, ‘The LORD–he is God! The LORD–he is God!’”

slashed themselves with swords and spears.

are being driven by demonic Influence!
Biblical laws were given that forbid the slashing of flesh.
(Deut. 14:1) which states:
“You are the children of the Lord your God; you shall not cut yourselves.

(Mark 5:5 ) who sat night and day crying out and cutting himself with stones.

the conjuring of demons. Demons are attempting to isolate our children so they turn
their frustrations and fears on themselves.
