I 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.
