They Hear Not

People are seriously over-board.

I went to a site where I post other material and got the comment that I have been “randomly deciding which christian sect is right”, and that “I chose my religion because it is the thing” and “it is from where you were born that you choose Christianity, not from divine powers” …  Whew, these comments show me that there are some sick people out there needing God.

Even if I had a rational answer for this guy, he would not understand what I am saying because he is not a believer in Christ.

Our religion is foolish to other people; as the bible says;

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. ~ 1 Corinthians 1:18

It is not even worth explaining to a person who has no ears to hear.

Beware if you are trying to share your faith, because faith falls on deaf ears if they are not genuinely seeking, or do not have the Holy Spirit.

Unbelievers Need God’s Grace Before Time Runs Out: Gaining Understanding Of The Spiritual World

angel-2693196_640I want to warn you that I think we are all being extra-challenged by Satan’s demonic world at this time, with all the world’s disturbances, people’s inability to handle their emotions, and the outpouring of rage we are seeing in everyday events.

 Warning: we have a lot of aggression in the world right now, may be Satan’s limiting the emotional functioning of people.

I remember the days when you said, “s’cuse me, can I get by you?” would render a person overly apologetic; it seems we all did it, were so very polite, apologizing for being in the way of someone, not knowing, and really not at the fault of anyone, but it was polite and very automatic when we said, “sorry”.  Remember?

Nowadays we hear the four-letter language telling us we have to “f” off and “get out of the way B#tch!”, and an almost sudden explosion of anger perpetrated upon us if we didn’t bow down to their dominion right away.  They are never wrong, their anger seems justified to their limited emotions, a sidelined emotional spectrum that doesn’t have more speeds than one; that of anger.

 Oppressive spirits use people to harm me, in my opinion.

A few years ago a friend gave me a book with a title relating to demonic spiritual strongholds, and the prayers I might say to cast the demons off me and to stay away.  It was helpful, at the time, but I have since decided that I am not God so that I have Him available to cast them down for me; to protect me, to say for me what they will hear and pay attention to, instead of my saying they have no dominion over me.  I just tell them that I now belong to Jesus Christ, so they have no power over me unless Jesus allows it.  

It may be more for my benefit that I say this, in order to help me grow my faith.  I think Jesus wants us to know what he says to us and to help us become more clear on what he is saying.  My strength grows stronger as I talk to the Lord out loud, and read the bible out loud.  I feel this helps me build my strength in the Lord as well.

 My insights as I grow stronger in the Lord.

I don’t understand the spiritual, any more than what’s in the bible.  I know that now the psychiatric world has begun exploring whether demons are real, or whether they are a manifestation of someone’s false belief for reasons why they have so much trouble psychologically with hearing voices, experiencing spiritual occurrences which can’t be explained, but I sympathize with these people, profoundly.  I am one that believes that spirits are real, not to scare you off, but to present another view of false teaching in the medical community.  We know there are lots of problems there, just in the treatments they use, and in the natural remedies they ignore.  They promote taking pharmaceutical drugs, and in the case of those who may have a psychiatric diagnosis, they are often presumed to be mentally ill and put on drugs.

I feel they have fallen short of learning about the world, and the truth of Jesus Christ.  Patients and doctors alike have no understanding of how real spirits are.  There are ministering angels that are of God, they are good, they are sent out to protect and inform people.  Then there are the fallen angels who like to harm people making them think they are mentally ill, and in some cases they are deluded into thinking that someone is talking to them from a distance using microwave weapons.  I left that line of thought years ago, and it is my belief that the Lord Jesus Christ never wanted me to return to that line of thought again.

Those people are taken over with the thought that there are electromagnetic weapons that are harming them, some call this “electronic harassment” or torture, but the truth may be that the devil is making them think this way, that mankind is shooting weapons to harm a segment of the population, across the U.S. and around the world.  This may be true, yet the better answer might be that whatever weapons man uses on people to harm them, it is from Satan that they do these things.  Satan inhabits people as we read in the bible, and since they are from Satan, they want to harm people.  That’s what Satan is set to do; harm people so they never will come to Christ; nor call upon Him to solve their problems.

I for one have experienced these problems in my walk in life, and I am very grateful to know that I am one of the Lord’s believers and have God on my side.  I think that since I believed, I have become much more healthy and strong, so that I know what is happening to my life more.  Instead of it seeming to be an exercise of pointless, random, problems I’ve faced, it seems to be an exercise of gaining strength in the Lord Jesus Christ and gaining ground in what I am learning.  I have God on my side to help me be strong against the people who have harmed me and I can grow righteously – obeying God – in these times, no matter what people do.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe. ~ Proverbs 18:10

I would help those in need if I had the chance.  At this point all I can do to help those with needs is to tell them to tell Jesus Christ, as their Savior, who has all the real answers for their lives, about their struggles.  He will help them.  He would save them, if they turn to him, asking in a pure heart as best as they can, to be their Savior.  The rest is easy, he begins showing them who He is, how He has love for them, and wants to save them for all eternity.  It grows, having a working relationship with God has been my experience.

Testing the spirits becomes a casual exercise, because the Holy Spirit teaches what to expect.  By that I mean, at least for me, that I can know beforehand what person is going to cause me hardship.  Is it a personality type?  I don’t know but I seem to have acquired a spiritual discernment that tells me what I need to know about a person.  Do I think they are straight-across honest?  Are they unstable?  Can they turn on me on a dime?  Do they seem wholesomely honest with me and seem to have a conscience?  Or do they have a fake demeanor, that is shallow in nature?  I can see this a mile away.  I am almost 100% right – not that I am perfect – buy my radar tells me is there is something wrong with a person I talk to.  What are the depths of their truths?  How well meaning are they?  Are they a good judge of people, and does it matter to them?

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. ~ 1 John 4:1

I have my own walk with Jesus, my own devastated life which I have experienced for years.  I have much that has happened to me that I usually do not share.  It was one, big nightmare for me until I learned that Christ helps us.

 Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. ~ James 1:12

Waiting for me is God, the Lord Jesus Christ on the day that I die.  That, or get taken up if the rapture occurs before that, but I have now a constant friend I can call upon who helps me, challenges me to think about life, and has me in the palm of his hand.  I am Christ’s and I can never be lost.  I am not willing to nor will I ever want to go back to living for Satan.  He seeks to kill, steal and destroy and is a roaring lion waiting for those he can devour.

The World Goes Berserk In Satan’s Hands

spooky-2580619_1280I was dumbfounded when I went to the laundry mat yesterday and a man literally blew up at me for not “being patient” after I had given him several minutes to move away from the dryer where I was wanting to remove my dry clothes from the dryer.  He stood right in front of my dryer, and at first, noticing this, I walked over to the front desk lady and asked her for the bathroom code, thinking that after I came back from the restroom, the man in front of the dryer I was waiting for would have had the time to move and allow me room to get my clothes.

He stood there, his back was to me, not moving or seeming to be doing much of anything, so I politely said, “Excuse me, can I get my clothes out of this dryer?”  He did not respond and I was not sure that he heard me, and I was not sure why he did not respond at all since I was sure he could have heard me.  So I repeated my question, and gently tapped the dryer so that he would know I was standing right behind him wanting into the dryer.  But instead of acknowledging me and saying, “Oh sorry, yeah sure, let me get out of your way” or something normal, he blew up at me instead, escalating into calling me the “b” word, (which excuse me, but I repeated back to him, not wanting to be a victim), and he was coming completely unstuck in a raving, lunatic stream of lecturing me and telling me I needed to “wait 2 seconds” and “be patient” which he was a good example of, being patient.

Well this went on for 30 seconds and he suddenly acted like he might attack me physically by twisting his body in a rageful manner as if to stack a step toward me, after which I backed away, taking my laundry in the basket on wheels and rolling away to load up my laundry in my clean laundry bags to leave the laundry mat.  He kept on yelling about the injustice to the laundry lady, and she quieted him and said, “I’m sorry”, in a compassionate tone.  I had already become quiet, ignoring his mad outburst.

 Describing how the man at the laundry mat sounded so berserk.

I believe that being in the end times, we are facing the fierceness of Satan’s devils making the human race seem unquestioningly demonic.  There is so much discord in the world with the Democrats being so against what our United States stands for and was founded upon: Christian liberty, the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and our form of government being a republic, and not a direct democracy, but some may argue that is is a representative democracy.  We live in a wonderful country, and are strong.  There is no other country like the U.S.  

I have, for many years, probably for my whole life, been the subject of a tyrannous spiritual warfare, which is described in the bible, and how people have been inhabited, causing them to have violent, bizarre behavior. These beings are real if you are a believer like me.  I believe the whole bible, not just some things, but God is real and so is His Kingdom.  He creates what he chooses and he created the angels that were thrown out of heaven, led by Lucifer, the angels who followed him known as demons, or unclean spirits.  They went against God, and now inhabit the earthy sphere, causing great harm to humans, who may have a chance in knowing Christ, and not abiding in the will of the devil.  Our strength as Christians against these devils come through Christ Jesus, alone. 

And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. ~ Revelation 12:4

Most of my life has been cut off and oppressed, because Satan is who I was raised with in my family.  We all were never believers, not even my mother who was raised as a Methodist, but it seemed to be only “recreational Methodism”, in my mind.  She gave up her belief in Jesus after marrying my dad, who was a hard-core atheist.  He dictated how we were raised, without God.

So my life had a blend of Methodism, through relatives, on my mothers side of the family.  I never knew them well.  My father’s side were Roman Catholics, and many Christians believe they are not true Christians in their doctrine and theology.  They pray to Mary and other saints, for instance, and may read their own bible, which does not say to have a relationship with Christ, or is it the Priest’s who tell them they may not have direct contact with Christ?  They are not Christians in my belief, they are just pagans taking the time to listen to some Luciferian Priest speak in a foreign language, maybe Latin, acting like they are the only way you can have Jesus in your lives.  

Jesus is for all people who choose to come to him, as we say.  It really means who will get to know him from reading the bible (I suggest the King James Version because the other versions have changed, or left out, certain verses and changed the meaning in the text), and who will pray to him, believe on him (as I’ve heard it said), and come to know Him.  He will come to know you if you are really trying to get to know Him, and sticking with it is the best advice I have on this.  When you are first starting out in believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, believe in your heart and ask Him where you go next in your beginning faith.

I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. ~ Jeremiah 17:10   

The man in the laundry mat, for instance, could have used the calmness and strength of Jesus, in order to help him control his anger, and see the error of his ways.  I have seen this in my own life; that I felt peace where there had been anger in the past.

You can have a nice life in the life of Christ if you recognize the importance of the peace He can give you to get through the day in all your trials and tribulations.  It is like a training camp for what we are facing now through the end until we are raised up to meet Him in the sky.  This is the time of the rapture when all good Christians will be lifted up in the spirit to meet our Savior face-to-face in the air.  He will be waiting with open arms.

God: Ready, Willing. False Doctrine Be Damned.

I really am angry at preachers who are falsely teaching the schools of thought leading to  the “seeker sensitive, new-apostolic reformation, prosperity gospel, divine healing” and even the “fourth wave” Christianity.  I was caught in one of those being new to the faith, seeking the Lord Jesus Christ, and not knowing what to do to “find” him.  I tried speaking in tongues until one night I actually did at home in my apartment there in Vacaville, California.  What I didn’t know is that I was being taught the false doctrine of the devil, who might have begun to target me years before, for accepting people’s reciting The Lord’s Prayer, at the end of some 12-step recovery meetings I attended.

Rewind back to about year 1986, I can remember, I had given birth to my daughter but had attended many a meeting for being married to an alcoholic.  I was raised to be an atheist, my father had been an alcoholic, and I married and alcoholic.  Seems the norm for many of us who were raised in that kind of family.

Then when I had attended Al-Anon meetings, branched out into several other recovery meetings and groups where they said that we could “have a god of our own understanding”, I became open to the possibility of God being Jesus Christ.  I guess you could say I became very tolerant of those people, saying The Lord’s Prayer myself at the end of those meetings.

Going to church in that false-doctrine, “full gospel” church that was so misleading, I think that Satan got his way when I fell down on my face, in a manner of speaking, learning the wrong doctrine and thinking I was “speaking in tongues”.  But it was all gibberish with no understanding on my part – or God’s.  He must have been truly upset to see a lady seeking Him speaking gibberish, then for years after that, being tormented by demons of the devil.  I am so mad at the false doctrines of mega-church pastors, not letting people really come to know God, but getting in the way of the people God reached out to in order that they respond and want to know him, so that they can lead lives with God’s strength, kindness and courage he gives that we are not capable of, of ourselves.  

He is real and true, and I was mislead, but Jesus has called out to me in a way I can answer.  He never let go of my life but kept me in his hands.  I have found God today and talk to Him regularly, knowing my strength comes from him; my bravery to stand up to the tyranny of people who try to stand in my way and stop me from whatever I am doing.

The annoyances of creeps who want to hurt me at work is one way I know satan uses people to come at me, but I win in this due to God’s helping me to understand; He is real, and is the One True God.

False-doctrine, be damned.

A Fake Jesus Shows Himself To Be Psychotic In Nature: What Blasphemy!

ghost-156969_1280I’m a little worried about all the people I know who are misled into thinking that Jesus appears as a “cloud of smoke”, or that Jesus’ joy consists of “laughing for hours” because his joy is so strong and other “manifestations” that people report about being special to God, being of God and having that “anointing” that is so strong and powerful that they become spokesmen for a certain church or belief.

And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. (Luke 16:31)

I wonder at how long the Lord will contain Himself, watching these ministers who spout miraculous healings, or Words of God that they receive, speaking in tongues all over the place, even teaching their flocks to “speak in tongues”?  My grief is that so many people will follow these preachers, not reading their bibles, and walking with Christ, but walking after these “signs and wonders preachers”, instead?

Won’t people be grieved to find they are not “known by God”, they have been too naive and trusting, to be led by preachers that have to have “signs and wonders” at their churches in order to prove that the Lord Jesus Christ is there?  Who do we follow, man or God?

My experiences in various false Divinity Schools has shown me that these “signs and wonders” teachers turn into leaders into the “miraculous”, that they are not followers of Christ, but of man.  Every “miracle” is not necessarily of God.  We are going down a slippery slope to believe that every “impartation, vision or sign” is automatically that of God.  Satan is a deceiver, who will lead people away from believing on the Lord Jesus Christ.  

Who needs signs and wonders to believe?  Why is it that they must preach in signs and wonders in order to prove faith?

Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. (John 4:48)

Who today supplants their faith with the need to see, or experience, signs and wonders? Faith is believing, sight unseen.

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)

I recall someone saying, the Jews needed signs and the Greeks needed logic.  How about blind faith?  You hear the word of God, and you believe?

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  (Romans 10:17)

People are too young in the Lord to really believe Him, without resorting to “proofs”.  Keep with your faith, do not be side-tracked into thinking that Jesus will perform special magic tricks to prove you believe. 

poker-2198117_1280

We cannot be turned from the truth about God, we must hold true to the bible and our faith.  God doesn’t need to show Himself in weird phenomena, He gave us his Word and that is enough.  We cannot let false teaching invade the church.  I offer a link to a message about seducing spirits by  John MacArthur.

The problem is, these false preachers lead people away from Jesus, to follow them.  They amass quite a following.

I must say it is a mental phenomena, to me, that so many would want a following so badly that they would look for signs and wonders to invade their churches, just so they can excite or impress people, grow their “flock” and maybe become famous.  

Look how many preachers seem to enjoy getting that special Word from God, thinking they are more special than others, so that they get that special message from God, and decree that you will have this or that.  I am tired of the showmanship where it is no longer about God, but about them.  These men and women of God who practice “little god” doctrines, who want all eyes to be on them, but not on the Lord Jesus Christ.  They play at being a “god”, because they want all the adulation, are self-seeking, ego-seeking and not of God.

I ask, who played at being a god, but was thrown out of heaven?

For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders that would deceive even the elect, if that were possible.  (Matthew 24:24)

I’m watching a disturbing video about how people are led to believe that Jesus is, and what he does with people.  It is very disturbing, talking about the Jesus Culture, in this particular video.  People shake, laugh for hours, see smoke in the air, and they call this a manifestation of Jesus.  They are looking for “an experience with God”, and sadly they are being misled.  They are not discerning the true Spirit of God.

Part 2: Jesus Culture – a Call for Discernment, Are you sure it’s your Jesus?

I was once part of this popular culture of spirits, of demons, really, which are the seducing spirits God talks about.  Spirits that led me to believe that I was being “slain in the spirit” for some strange reason.  Talking in tongues of gibberish, meaning nothing, not knowing I did not have to “hide” my prayers in “my prayer language”, so that Satan wold not understand what I was saying.  My prayers are heard and understood by God.  I do not need a special “prayer language” so that God knows secretly, what I am praying, so maybe this will protect my prayers from being understood by Satan.  Is Satan a threat to the Lord Jesus Christ?

All I can say is, wow.  I didn’t know we had such an unmighty, unvictorious Savior, like Christ who was raised from the dead, came back to walk the earth, and then ascend up into Heaven where he sits at the right hand of the Father.  Do I need to hide my prayers for God to be safe enough to understand them so that Satan will not hear?  When did Jesus overcome Satan, then?  Was it not the truth that Jesus has already been victorious over death, and that after a time, Satan will be no more on earth?

But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” (Revelation 20:9b-10)

Looking back, I see with great sadness how people want “the experience”, and, like a drug seeker who wants that “high”, and an altered state of experience, they are still seeking the seducer who calls them back, to relive that “special encounter” they are having with (a) god.  It is not Jesus.  It has become the broad highway, going in the opposite direction of the straight and narrow path that few will follow.  Who are you following?

I have more to say about my studying, and becoming an “ordained minister” in a few of these places, which I do not aspire to use ever in my life.  I reject the counter-culture I see in various churches I have attended, schools I have graduated from as well as churches I have attended.  I reject this “touchy-feely”, “unity spiritual” and “encounter groups” I have been a witness to, unfortunately.  I have seen the truth through the eyes of Christ by reading my bible every day, and leaning on Him to teach me through the Holy Spirit’s opening my eyes while I read and study His Word.  I am hoping you do, too.

Walking With God

20150422_140415Sometimes it seems I do my greatest thinking while I’m driving my car.  I often talk out loud as I’m thinking, asking the Lord Jesus Christ about what to do in any situation.  It seems to spur me to think about my life’s priorities, and then if I don’t figure out a way to record my thoughts like jotting a note, I will forget what I said and the clear as a bell insight I get when I’m saying it to the Lord.

Today I figured out how to position my cell phone on the cell phone cradle that’s attached to the fan and heater vents in my car, turn on the voice recorder, and start talking.

Here’s the recordings about the people I care about who don’t know God, and my feelings about them.  I am concerned about how many people on the earth do not know Jesus.

No one else can find Jesus for us, we each have to make this decision to get to know Him, reaching out to Him sincerely, asking to know Him.  No one else can believe for us, we have to walk with Him, ourselves.  That may be a scary thought to some, but really, He makes it very easy and I am so glad I made the decision to find Jesus, for myself.

Here’s one that is short, and an audio while I was driving:

Today in the library as I’m typing this blog post, I was surrounded by people of other cultures; muslim, with the head covering to my right, and to my left, the sari of an East Indian woman.

How could God create all these cultures, but they do not know Him?  It begs the question of whether I should just start talking about how I blog about Jesus so they know someone cares, or whether that will scare them away.  Interesting concept, but it would bring these people closer together.  I did not say anything to either of them, but smiled in a friendly way while typing on my blog.  This is interesting to me now that I think we are in the End Times, so close to the Lord’s returning for His people, His “elect”.

How would you react?  Would you start sharing Jesus with total strangers at the library, or just feel guilty that you said nothing?  After all, if I’m so concerned about how many people don’t know Jesus, why aren’t I taking action publically?  I guess this is the Holy Spirit’s conviction in my heart, but I still feel that if people aren’t ready and are not asking about Him, they will not respond in a way that they will keep reaching for Him, so that they will be saved.

God Is A Wonderous God

driving to Kirkland library christianviewToday while driving home, or rather, to the library near the car camp where I park every night in Kirkland, Washington, I decided to shoot some video.  Since I drive so much, being a van dweller, videotaping would make the drive more productive and add interest to my site.  It’s a new area that I drive in with my new part-time job as a temp Office Administrator and driving in new neighborhoods is especially fun.  Taping it makes it funner.

Driving to the Kirkland Washington library

While editing the video at this little table I’m sitting at, at the library, makes me feel like I want to rent a studio; just a little room somewhere where I can lean back in my chair and talk if I want to, without anyone walking by to look at what I’m doing.  I like my privacy and listening to people, including children, talk during creating a video and blog post seems disturbing and it is all too public.

I work the weekend, and this will add to the budget.  Have you ever wondered how you will get to where you want to go without the funds needed to get there?  

I think of these things often, how I will survive long enough to build that media empire – well, maybe a media company – of what size I do not know, and keep the dream alive until God calls me home.  After much prayer about this and discussing these ideas with God, I’m not sure what He has in mind for my life.  I know the rapture may come soon, but here we are having to live life to its fullest as best as we can, walking with God holding our hands and trying not to whine about what I want to have and what I can’t get right now.

Heaven will be much better and I know it’s worth the wait.  In the meanwhile I hope to carry the message of the Lord Jesus Christ in my heart every day and I hope and pray that more people will come to Christ that I see on my daily drives to work.  How must they feel knowing they are alone in life, working on dreams and goals, facing hardship at leasts some of the time I am sure, but hoisting the weight of these desires on their shoulders and aimlessly flailing around trying to fulfill some worldly goals without help from the Lord Jesus Christ?

Today I noticed again, a time when I would have felt so out of place, exposed, and even uncomfortable with people around me at the gym who seem to want to make eye contact and stare a little too long while I’m busy doing something else.  It’s very distracting but I notice that at times I feel God has surrounded me with a wall that protects me and neutralizes these stares so that they do not bother me.  I am amazed at His love and how He protects us if we but ask.  I wanted to write about this new development because it’s making it easy for me to walk through things that do not seem to effect me the same way as they used to.  For that I am glad, and I give thanks to Him, for He helps me in ways that I need help.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. – Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)

As I plan for my future, each day seems to bring joy and happiness because I know the Lord and He is my savior.

It seems He has helped plan my days each day since I start out in the morning and end the day on a high note with His guiding me.  Many problems get solved in my day from learning from God, or His ministering angels, how I should handle each situation.  If I need to plan how to get more exercise in my day He helps me walk through this, beginning with something easy since I am discombobulated and no longer live in a familiar area.  It’s hard to find my way around when I have to find new stores, laundromats, YMCA’s, and other things I normally do each day.  And every day is a new day in that it’s getting easier and funner.  I find my health has improved, I have more energy than I had six months ago, and I actually have some time to read the bible every day like I did when I lived up in Everett, Washington, when I knew my way around.

It’s hard living as a van dweller, space is cramped and I miss having a desk to hold a computer and I like showering at home, but it’s okay now that I know God is leading me.  I feel protected and in His Wonderful Hands.
