This came to me as I was waking up this morning, and speaking to the Lord about all the evil that is plaguing this world.
I mentioned to Him (as I do every day as I wake up) how much I’d rather be HOME with Him, than be here, and that I cannot wait for That Day.
His exact response at that moment was, “YOU fight FIRE with FIRE; The consuming fire of God fights against the fires of Hell.”
As I started my morning routine and continued to think more about this and discuss this with the Holy Spirit, I felt led to make this statement.
We ARE in a fight for eternal souls; either mankind ends up in “the lake of fire and brimstone” (Rev. 20:10) because they have chosen NOT to follow God and His Word, or They will become a child of the Living Eternal Godhead while here on Earth, and have the fire of the Holy Spirit of God living and working within them, for the remainder of their time here on Earth.
Again, the choice is up to each individual human spirit, WHERE they end up, and what kind of FIRE they give themselves up to.
I do “get” what the LORD God is attempting to do—wake every single person up out of the satanic spell we’ve been under since Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate the fruit. I may not like HOW the LORD is doing it, and how much of the evil He is allowing to be infiltrated into our lives right now, but He knows that some will finally “wake up” and realize that this life here on Earth was never supposed to be all that wonderful; especially not after what happened at the Fall—of Angels, and Humans. This is a broken, evil world, and eventually, the Lord needs to destroy it.
Seriously—since then, we lost the power and ability of our higher spiritual “functions”, if you will = close relationship with God, and those of us who have accepted His Son over the last two millennia, still have struggled to live a life that would please Him. The only way to regain some of those higher functions is having a relationship with the Lord Jesus, and NOT the illegal way some others manage to “tap into” those powers. It is ONLY through Jesus Christ. Period. Any other way is satanic and demonically induced.
The rest of the human population is walking around, still under that same Satanic “spell”, and in all reality ARE “the walking dead” – spiritually. They are very OPEN (and most do not know it!) to the very LEGAL demonic doorways in their lives, and every evil entity that finds a “legal” doorway, takes it. Hence the reason why there are more and more immoral people out there, saying and doing things that we never thought in our lifetime we would see or hear, but it’s happening!!
LAWLESSNESS IS abounding, as the Lord Jesus stated (Matt. 24:12). We cannot go hide under a rock somewhere and pretend it’s not going on!! We cannot go on with our own lives, and IGNORE the truth of the amount of evil there is, because ONE day, it very may well catch up with US, or someone we love and care about (esp those who do NOT have the Lord Jesus in their lives!)!
The only ROCK we should be clinging to, is the LORD God Almighty! HE is our ROCK, our fortress, and our deliverer!! (2 Sam. 22:2-3; Ps. 18:2)! HE alone is the ROCK of our salvation (Ps. 95:1)! He is our REFUGE (Ps. 62:7). We should remind ourselves that we ARE to be that “light” (Matt. 5:14; Jn. 1:5)to all those who are in the darkness (evil)! TELL them (and let us remind ourselves as well!) that The LORD lives, and blessed be our ROCK, and exalted be the God of OUR salvation! (Ps. 18:46)
If WE do not tell them, beloved—if WE do not INFORM and WARN them now, we WILL answer to the Judge of all the Earth (Gen. 18:25) for it. IF they refuse—If they choose NOT to REPENT, and go further into the evil that is increasing every day here (and the LORD God is allowing it for a reason!!), it eventually will destroy them.
Let us do our part to continue to inform and warn everyone, and tell them that they DO have a choice—and that choice is to accept the ROCK of AGES (Is. 26:4) into their lives—Jesus Christ!! HE is the ONLY way a human being is to avoid what is soon to come upon the Earth, and also, eternal damnation and destruction.
Once I knew my true birth name of “Geist”–it stunned me how the LORD God can be that precise-in everything! I heard the Spirit of God speaking to me ever since I was a child. The first verse I learned in 1st grade Religion class, “I have called you by name; You are Mine” (Is. 43:1) meant the world to me. He’s always been with me; He’s never left my side. And then, 50+ years later, I find out even more about my connection with Him.
His Name. Geist = spirit, or ghost. Heiligen Geist = Holy Ghost/Spirit in German.
It was fitting and made total sense, seeing that the Lord placed me on a Path that deals with Spiritual Warfare, to want to help those who are spiritually bound with demonic entities, keeping them from the peace and freedom they could have with the Lord Jesus.
Hence the reason why the Lord has directed me to go to school, to learn His Word, in the ancient languages–Hebrew, Latin, and Greek (and Aramaic this summer on my own), in order to fulfill the WALK that the Spirit of God laid for me on this Path.
And once I am done with schooling this May with my Master’s in Biblical Languages, I will begin another Master’s class for Pastoral Counseling, in order to get further education in counseling, in order to help those who are in need of spiritual breakthroughs in their lives; to help break the demonic chains that have bound them all their lives. To allow the LORD God through the Holy Spirit to set them free, in order to accept the Lord Jesus as Savior and Lord of their lives.
It really was all this time, in the name. It just had to be revealed to me, and now hopefully it is made clearer to you. Maybe the Lord has more to reveal to you about you and your walk with Him.
Walking IN the Spirit every day of our lives, as fallible as we are, will reveal what the LORD God has always had in store for us.
I finally found out what my destiny was-to be a mouthpiece for the LORD God and His Son, Jesus, and to walk in and by the Holy Spirit, letting Him lead and guide me by faith, every day, until it is Time for me to go Home to Him.
Allow the Spirit of God to show you what YOUR Path is with Him. WALK that walk of faith–yes, IN the dark, most likely, for “we walk by faith, and not by sight” (2 Cor. 5:7). Remember, “Hope that is SEEN is not hope” (Rom. 8:24). It MUST be by faith in Him, in the Spirit, and talking about it is not enough.
It MUST be a WALK. LIVE in the SPIRIT, and WALK in the SPIRIT.
I don’t think the late Benedict XVI fully realized how prophetic his statement was. David certainly did not realize many of his Psalms were prophetic either, at the time when he was writing each of them. But we are actually SEEING this happen before our eyes, whether we are part of a “C” Catholic church or not.
The fact is, anyone who considers themselves a Christian—a true believer IN the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost/Spirit, and is baptized (Mk. 16:16), is a child of God, and IS part of the One holy “c” catholic (universal) and apostolic Church, regardless of what sect of Christianity you may hail from.
THIS AFFECTS ALL OF US—not just born-again, Bible-believing Catholics like myself who attend the TLM-Traditional Latin Mass-the very Mass that started it all, and yet the hierarchy has been trying to shut us down. Why? Because the TLM reminds them of how it all started, at the Last Supper between Christ and His disciples-that it’s all about HIM, and not the people in the seats. It’s FOR us in the seats, but the attention is wholly on GOD in that service, no one else, just like it was in the OT when the priests were in the tabernacle and even more so, in the Holy of Holies with the Spirit of God. And they hate that.
If you think that this does not or will not affect your church one day—think again. The power and spirit of AntiChrist has been here since the ascension of the Lord Jesus to the Father in Acts 1:8-11. The Apostle John spoke about it in his letters to the Church. He WARNED us that this would happen, and further more was able to explain and expound upon it when the Holy Spirit “raptured” or “snatched” his spirit up in a vision to Heaven in Revelation 4:1-2, and showed him some things that were at that time in his life that had to do with the Church, but the remainder of John’s vision had to do with what was to come in the latter days-the days WE in the 21st century, are living in presently.
You see, the problem with the CHURCH as a whole, is that one branch of the Tree thinks it is better, or holier, or more “Spirit-filled”, etc., than the others. Some branches do not at all accept the others as fellow believers, and would rather even dare to call them “heretics”; for that, the Lord Jesus will judge them harshly. It was Jesus Himself that admonished John in Luke 9:49-50 about this very thing; John and the other disciples saw someone casting out devils in Jesus’ name, and they told him to stop, just because that man was not in their particular group. Jesus said to John, “Do not stop him, for the one who is not against you, is for you.” But the devils and demons have done an excellent job in getting all of us to see each other as the enemy, INSTEAD of focusing on THEM! May the Lord forgive us for our lack of love toward one another!
NONE of us in any branch of the Church has it “perfect”; as a matter of fact, there wasn’t supposed to BE thousands of splits in the BODY of Christ! As the picture with the Scripture states, we were and ARE to be, ONE BODY, ONE SPIRIT in Christ-ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM, with ONE GOD and Father ruling OVER ALL of us (Eph. 4:4-6). But we managed in 2000+ years, to majorly screw that up to the point even the devils and demons themselves scratch their heads wondering how we managed to let it get that bad!
If after reading all of this, you still think that some parts of the whole BODY of Christ are “heretics” or “non-believers” because they do not worship exactly the same way you do, or sing the same songs you do, or preach the same way you do, or speak the Mass/service in the same language that you do, OR they do not seem to be as “holy” as you and your branch of Christianity is, well get ready to be KNOCKED OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE like Saul of Tarsus was (Acts 9:1-6)!
The Lord Jesus did it then, and in order to get HIS BODY of believers back to where it was wayyyy back in the time of Acts, there’s going to be some —actually, MANY of us who just may be going back to the “catacomb” days that soon followed in that first couple of centuries. So He will ALLOW it to happen, in order for us all TO become what He Himself prayed to the Father for in John 17, that we would be “sanctified in the truth, for Your Word is truth” (vs. 17), and that “the glory that You have given me I have given them, THAT THEY MAY BE ONE EVEN AS WE ARE ONE” (vs. 22). Jesus continued in verse 23, “I in them and You in Me, that THEY (that is us!!) may become PERFECTLY ONE, so that the WORLD may know that YOU sent Me and loved them even as you loved Me.”
The prayer in John 17 by the Lord Jesus has YET to fully be answered, because the BODY of Christ has been too busy arguing, fighting and condemning each other, instead of turning toward the Lord Jesus, and LISTENING to the HOLY SPIRIT, allowing HIM to lead and guide us, and grow us into the true BODY of CHRIST we were always meant to be, with ONE TRUE Spirit —not hundreds of evil spirits leading us into judgment and God forbid, even damnation!
PRAY and ask the Holy Spirit to REVEAL to you, how YOU as a believer in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit —the ONE TRUE GODHEAD—should be praying about this. Allow Him to HUMBLE you, and let Him show you what can do about all of this in this ever increasing evil time when the CHURCH BODY is and will be continuing to go through MUCH TRIBULATION in the days to come.
With much HUMILITY, REPENTANCE, and ALL of us in the Body seeking FORGIVNESS of such sins against each other, we may just be able to once again, stand strong (Eph. 6:10-18) against the TRUE enemy of our souls—the evil ones who have since the beginning of the time of God’s creation of humanity, sought out to STEAL, KILL, and DESTROY (Jn. 10:10) us off the face of the Earth, just because the LORD God loves us, and created us in HIS image. Also, because He sent His Son, Jesus, to SAVE us from our sins (Matt. 1:21), IF we were to ACCEPT Him into our lives.
Mark my words, mark Benedict’s words, and most importantly, mark THE WORD OF GOD—because ALL Scripture will be fulfilled, and the Church WILL go through a time of persecution and tribulation this world has yet to see. But it is coming. And sooner than any of us who ARE watching and seeing it happen, would like to admit.
PRAY and SEEK the Lord God, and His Son, and ask Him to humble you and your church body, in order to work with the other true branches of the Body of Christ. Those who ARE truly His, will desire to do HIS will, and work with one another, in love, in humility, in reverent fear of the LORD God and His living Word, which IS His SON, the LORD JESUS (Jn. 1:1-2, 14), Who is and always will be the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE (Jn. 14:6) for all that accept Him as both SAVIOR and LORD of their lives.
Remember the words of the Apostle Paul in Galatians 3:26-29, and LIVE them out, in love, humility and service to one another, fulfilling the law of Christ, and answering His prayer to the Father:
“For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither JEW nor GREEK, SLAVE nor FREE, there is no MALE and FEMALE, for you are ALL ONE in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to Promise.”
May the LORD GOD Almighty have mercy on us, and forgive our sins of highmindedness, and help us once again to become the HUMBLE servants of the Most High He desired all of us in the Body of Christ to be—one HOLY, CATHOLIC, and APOSTOLIC CHURCH. In Jesus’ most precious Name—Amen. ✨✝️📖✨✝️📖✨✝️📖✨✝️📖✨✝️📖 Pope Benedict XVI visionary….(from 1969)
WE ARE HERE ! The prophecy of Fr. Joseph Ratzinger in 1969: “We will soon have reduced priests to the role of social workers and the message of faith reduced to political views. Everything will seem lost, but at the right moment, right in the most dramatic stage of the crisis, the Church will be reborn. She will be smaller, poorer, almost catacombal, but even more holy. For it will no longer be the Church of those who seek to please the world, but the Church of the faithful to God and His eternal law. Rebirth will be the work of a small remains, seemingly insignificant yet indomitable, passed through a purification process. Because that’s how God works. Against evil, a small flock resists. “
I saw a devotional this morning, that spoke about how we have peace with the LORD God when we are awake, but especially, when we lay down to sleep. It quoted Psalm 4:8, and the prayer taken from it that my Godmother Helen used to have us kids to say before we were put to bed each night when I visited my cousins—“Now I lay me down to sleep…”.
But the verse that stood out to me this morning was from Psalm 23:4. As I read the verse over and over again, the words “valley of the shadow of death” resonated within me. For David, who had many enemies, being under attack by his king, and even by his own son at one point, I can see how this Psalm poured out of his soul and onto paper.
I looked up the verse, and the specific word צלמות “salmavet”, which in Hebrew is “of the shadow of death”. It is also defined as “death-shadow” (of distress, extreme danger), “deep shadow”, and “deep darkness” (of place of the dead). Even though they are mostly used figuratively, I sense there is a more literal meaning of it than we would like to admit.
This world has become more and more “the valley of the shadow of death”. In fact, I dare say that literally walking in this world right now IS like walking through the “shadow of Death”—the same Death that is mentioned in Revelation 20:14–the Greek word for death being θάνατος = “Thanatos”, the name for the ancient Greek god of Death (in Rome, the god was “Mors”). Thanatos may sound familiar, since in recent years the Avengers movies had a supervillain character named “Thanos” which first appeared in the Marvel comics. He most certainly lived up to the name in those movies.
Some other Bible verses that include “the shadow of death” or the other definitions of it are in Psalm 107:10–“There were those who dwelt in darkness and in the shadow of death, Prisoners in misery and chains…” Boy, does that sound a lot like the people who basically are the “walking dead” on this Earth right now, who deny the very GOD who allows them to still have BREATH in their lungs.
Another verse is from Matthew 4:16 which is taken from Isaiah 9:2, “The people that walked in darkness (חשׁך)- kho-shek’, which means “darkness, obscurity”; “darkness”, “secret place”, “death”, “misery”, “IGNORANCE”—!, “sorrow”, “wickedness”. Hmm, very interesting how that is “figuratively” used, because the way our world is right now—actually, it has BEEN that way, but MOST of us have been ASLEEP, eating the “Lotus cookies” (some of you will 😉get that), busy with our own lives, not paying attention to what really has been going on in the world, both physically and SPIRITUALLY.
We human spirits have partaken in “panem et circenses”—“bread and circuses—a WHOLE lot of distraction from what has really gone on in this world—the work of the evil ones who “steal, kill, and destroy” (John 10:10)—the HUMAN PUPPET AGENTS of SATAN who have continued his work for millennia, because he vowed to himself to take as many with him as possible to the Pit and ultimately, to “the LAKE WHICH BURNETH WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE; which is the SECOND DEATH” (Rev. 21:8). That “second death” is WORSE than the first, because it is PERMANENT and ETERNAL.
WHAT needs to happen if one wants to avoid that “valley of the shadow of death”? You cannot avoid that, for WE ALL who are living ad breathing, are walking IN that valley right NOW—it is HERE on EARTH; it IS EARTH. Hence the reason why David wrote it the way he did, “Even though I WALK THROUGH the valley of the shadow of death”; David realized he was IN that valley throughout his lifetime. This entire life is about HOW to walk through that valley of death, misery, destruction, evil works, etc., and come out FROM it, with the help of the ONLY ONE Who can “deliver us from evil” (Matt. 6:13) that we see, hear, smell, touch, and taste of every single day of our lives. THAT Person is within the Eternal Triune Godhead—the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Lord Jesus DEFEATED Hell and Death (very real evil spirits) at the Cross, and OWNS the keys (Rev. 1:18)!! He is the ONLY ONE Who was RESURRECTED, and because of His victory at the Cross, as Paul stated in 1 Corinthians 15:55, “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” The Lord Jesus has made a way back to the Father—the ONLY way, for He IS “the way, the truth, and the LIFE” (Jn. 14:6), and there is NO OTHER WAY out of eternal DARKNESS, the shadow of DEATH, or DAMNATION, except one who acknowledges Jesus as LORD and SAVIOR of their life (Romans 10:9-10,13).
If you want out of the “valley of the shadow of death”, you first must REPENT (Ez. 14:6; 18:30; Matt. 3:2; Mk. 1:15; Lk. 13:3,5; Acts 2:38; 8:22). The Lord Jesus warns once again of what will happen if people do not repent of their sins and wickedness: “Therefore, repent. If not, I will come to you SOON and war against them with the sword of My mouth” (Rev. 2:16). The “sword” IS His Word, and He, Jesus, IS THE WORD OF GOD.
SEEK the Lord and His Word out. BE HUMBLE and ASK Him to forgive you of your sins, and LIVE as a child of the King, Who WILL hold your hand and walk WITH you, “through the valley of the shadow of death” here, UNTIL the “appointed time” (Dan. 8:19; 11:35; Hab. 2:3; for Him to come back and “redeem His people” (2 Sam. 7:23; Job 5:20; Ps. 69:18; Is. 50:2; Jer. 15:21), and I will end with Hosea 13:14a: “I SHALL ransom them from the power of Sheol; I SHALL REDEEM them from DEATH…”
“There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for EVERY event under heaven…” Eccl. 3:1
“For the Day of the LORD of Hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low…” Isaiah 2:12
“Behold, the Day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.” Isaiah 13:9
“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain: let ALL the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the Day of the LORD is coming; it is near…” Joel 2:1
This message is both a warning to those who continue to do evil, to STOP NOW, and for those who wait on the LORD—get ready, for He has NOT forsaken you! Keep your lamps trimmed with oil, and your minds focused on Him. Continue to PRAY for the the lost, and hope, for the best IS yet to come for all those who have waited upon the LORD.
“Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him; fret not yourselves over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!” Ps. 37:7
“For the evildoers SHALL BE CUT OFF, but THOSE who WAIT for the LORD SHALL inherit the land.” Psalm 37:9
“It IS good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.” Lam. 3:26
“The LORD looks down from Heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God” (Ps. 14:2).
Pray for every inhabitant on the face of the Earth, that they may take a knee NOW, while they still have breath in their lungs, and acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, Lord, King, and Master, before it is too late (Phil. 2:9-11).
If anyone has cried over the sins and evils that both mankind and demon have done, it is the LORD God, and His Son. The Holy Spirit has grieved like no other, to see this world decline and become like those evil creatures chained in Tartarus, awaiting their Day of Judgment (2 Pet. 2:4-10; Jude 1:6-7).
But until That Day arrives; Until the Lord finishes what He has started so long ago, EVERY person who still has breath in them, STILL has an opportunity to REPENT, and ask Him for forgiveness. He will gladly give it to all those who cry out to Him (Ps. 18:6; 34:6,17).
For those who refuse, There is a place where they will go for all eternity; It was NEVER meant for mankind, but only for Satan and all those angelic spirits who rebelled against their Master so long ago (Is. 66:22-24; Dan. 12:1-2; Matt. 25:31-46; 2 Thess. 1:5-10; Rev. 14:9-11; 20:11-15).
The LORD is Just. He must punish the wicked ones of mankind along with those angelic creatures.
That Day is coming…SOON. NO ONE knows that Day or Hour, but the Father Himself (Matt. 24:36).
Will YOU be ready when He calls His children HOME to Himself? Will YOU escape the Time of His Wrath upon the Earth that is yet to come (Ps. 110:5; Is. 13:6; Jer. 30:7; Joel 2:11; Rev. 6:17)?
The only person that can answer that question, and will be held RESPONSIBLE for what happens to their ETERNAL state, Is YOU.
Cry out to the LORD now; SEEK His Face; CALL upon His name. HE WILL ANSWER YOU (Jer. 33:3; Ps. 17:6; Ps. 20:6; Zech. 10:6; Is. 30:19).
“Answer me quickly, O LORD; my spirit fails. Do not hide Your face from me, or I will be like those who descend into the Pit” (Ps. 143:7).
Do not wait for “tomorrow”; there might not be one.
BUT, realize when you do all these things, it IS for certain that you will: Lose friends like Jesus did. Lose family members like Jesus did. Have people ignore you like they did to Jesus. Have those who were the closest to you, as best friends, even, no longer want to talk to you or see you anymore, like what they did to Jesus (that actually happened to Joseph and Mary, His parents, as well). Have people hate you for no reason at all, like they hated Jesus. Have people ostracize you, like they did Jesus. Have people tell lies about you, like they did to Jesus. Have some want to even harm you or kill you, like how they wanted to do to Jesus. Have some put curses on you, like they did with Jesus. Have people not include you in family gatherings anymore, because your love for Jesus. Have people try to silence you because of your love for Jesus.
The devil moves people to see you as their enemy, because you put God and His Word first in your life, as Jesus did. They will persecute you, because they persecuted Jesus.
No matter how many times you reach out, No matter how many times you try to let them know you still love them, No matter how many times you tell them you miss them and want to stay in touch with them, No matter how successful and accomplished you can be-if you love Jesus, most will have hardly anything to do with you.
But did not Jesus tell us that would all happen? He did. Is it still worth following Him, then, to lose all those who would rather not have anything to do with you, because of your love for the Lord Jesus, His Father, and the Holy Spirit? Is it REALLY all worth it?
YES, IT IS.
I do not like it; it breaks my heart that loved ones have nothing to do with me anymore. And if you are a follower of Christ, it WILL happen to you too.
BUT I will STILL go on, loving, caring, praying, forgiving, being patient with and serving others, even if while I’m here on this Earth, I do not see the “fruit” of my labors. I will see them fulfilled One Day, when my Lord soon calls me Home, and honestly, that is really all that matters.
Jesus IS all that matters to me.
Because as HE hung on that Cross, I was ALL that MATTERED to HIM.
This is short and sweet, but as soon as I read today’s quote from the daily devotional I received in my inbox this morning, I knew I had to share it with everyone.
We, the Body of Christ = Church—NEED to have this fire kindled in our lives each and every day!
The days are coming, and actually are already here, that the people will long to hear the Word of the Lord. The enemy will do ANYTHING to keep us from hearing it by distracting us as much as possible, and also will keep us from having that relationship with the LORD God, and learning His Word.
Be a holy rebel—be the ONE that the devil hates, and allow God’s consuming fire to burn all that keeps you from getting closer to Him. Then allow Him to grow and mature you into the strong servant warrior of Christ you were meant to be!
I normally do not use my site to speak about anything else but spiritual and Biblical things, but then again this is MY blog site, and I can write about what I want, right?
So if the world wants to celebrate something as vile as men having vile sex with each other, women doing the same, and companies want to “join in” by showing their support, well I guess I have the right to say that I DO NOT stand with them, because my God, Who happens to be my FATHER, does NOT allow such evils to be practiced, or worse yet, celebrated!
So WHY NOT celebrate the BIBLICAL things, like all the Judeo-Christian holidays and such? WHY NOT give praise and honor to the LORD GOD and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who CREATED the very EARTH these humans live on? Why has the world pushed Him aside? Because what they stand for—evil—is dead set against Him and His Word. Heavy on the “dead” part, but I will get to that in a bit. Good and evil cannot live with one another; one of them has to be destroyed—that is the invisible war presently going on behind the scenes that most humans have no clue about.
I cannot tell you how many times I have heard people say to me, “I do not want any Christianity or Bible passages shoved down my throat—if I do not believe, you have to respect my rights!” Ok, so WHY THEN, can they not respect OUR rights to not see or hear about it either? Every time I turn around now, I see drag queens putting on shows with CHILDREN in the audience, or reading to them in libraries? OR, worse yet, allowing their children to LIVE OUT that lifestyle as well! And there are parents out there that think this is all great and just part of the “evolution” of the human! Oh yea, the human is DEVOLVING into the very demonic creatures they knowingly or unknowingly, are serving!
WHY is THAT ok? Since when does THAT not cross the “line”, like us Christians sharing the Bible with others?? How can a human being be fine with what actually IS an abomination as per Scripture, but God forbid if I or another Christian start speaking about the Lord Jesus—they’ll say, “Run for the hills, people, these ultra right-wing, 2A, God-loving, Bible-thumping Jesus freaks (oh, and most of like Trump also, so that makes them hate us even more) are at it again—thinking they can force us to become holy! We want nothing to do with them!”
Well guess what? I want NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR VILE, DISGUSTING, DEMONIC, evil ways, either!! Sodom and Gomorrah did not get destroyed by some angry hateful God who had nothing else better to do that day; He destroyed it because ALL of them were so vile, the demonic infestation ran from the adults straight into the children (Gen. 18:17-19:28)! There was no one left that was worth saving, because even Abraham asked the LORD to save them all if there even were only 10 righteous (Gen. 18:32) left in that place, and the LORD said that IF there were 10, He would not destroy those cities.
But, as most people know, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed (see Gen. 19, esp. vs. 28). The disgusting demonic sins of the people had to be dealt with. And even though it has been several thousand years since then, these same sins still exist today, BUT the difference is, the world has been living in what is called “the Age” or “Dispensation” of Grace.
Because of Christ’s work on the Cross, and through His death and resurrection, the world’s inhabitants have had an opportunity all this time to get their life right with the LORD God. Until they take their last breath, a human spirit has the opportunity to come to the LORD God, ask for forgiveness for whatever it was they have done (except for the blaspheming of the Holy Spirit (Mk. 3:29, Luke 12:10, Matt. 12:31). That is as per the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
So except for that, if one were a murderer (like Moses), an adulterer (like David), a thief (like Jacob), a pagan/unbeliever (like Rahab, Ruth, Abraham, the Canaanite woman, or the Roman centurion-just a few examples), the Lord Jesus would lovingly accept their humble plea for forgiveness, cleansing, and deliverance.
THAT is what is missing—people needing to get exorcised and delivered FROM the demonic vexations, infestations, obsessions, and worst of all, POSSESSIONS. Most people, even some Christians (especially clergy these days) do not even believe in the spiritual realm, whether it is angelic or demonic. Hence the reason why Satan and his crew of minions have been able to run around, “seeking whom they may devour” (1 Peter 5:8), because most humans have NO IDEA where the evil is coming from.
Demonic infestation of a human being happens mostly through sexual intercourse = transference of demons from one human to another. Any good exorcist (like the late Fr. Gabriel Amorth) would tell you that is true. But again, most people do not believe in such things, so the evil has “free reign” to grow, fester, and “populate”, if you will, in others who live certain lifestyles that desire to be very sexually “liberal” with themselves and others (see Leviticus 18-21, 1 Cor. 6:9-10, and also Romans 1:18-32). They will have “inherited” many demons, some more stronger than the others, and unless that person is serious about leaving that lifestyle, humbly seeks forgiveness and sincerely desires help from an exorcist or deliverance worker, just giving their lives over to the Lord Jesus will not solve their problems of all the demonic strongholds they have within their spirit, soul, and body.
There are multiple other ways of demonic infestation beside sexual transmission—drugs, alcohol consumption when it becomes an addiction, pornography (basically any type of sexual sin outside the confines of marriage), witchcraft and dealing with any other pagan/false idols, gods, demons, etc. opens up a WIDE path (and a “legal” one for Satan!) for those demons who are in charge and controlling such strongholds in humans, to “set up residence” and create havoc in a human spirit’s life. AND, they will NEVER LEAVE, unless the person gives themselves over completely and wholeheartedly-SPIRIT, SOUL, and BODY—to the Lord Jesus Christ. THAT is the truth. The longer the demons reside in the person, the worse mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually the person gets, until they either end up destroying themselves and most of the time, taking others’ lives in the process.
In closing, I did not write this out of “hatred” for any human spirit being; I wrote it out of LOVE and concern for this human race that has been deceived by those demons and Satan himself, who actually was clever enough to deceive 1/3 of the angelic population WHILE STILL IN GLORY with God Almighty!! Lucifer made an awful free-will choice that day, and has since been sentenced (but NOT YET confined!) to the Pit (Rev. 20:3), and then the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:10).
So what makes a person think they are smarter than him, that they will not “fall” for such demonic traps? Think again, because every single person has been deceived one way or another in their life. “There is none righteous, no, not one” (Rom. 3:10). We’ve all “fallen short of the glory of God“ (Rom. 3:23).
Every precious human spirit has the opportunity to go to God NOW, while there is still breath in their lungs, and ask for Him to forgive them, even of the most heinous deeds one could even imagine. Yes, Christ died for that human being as well. In the End (which is soon to come), the Judge of all the living(Ps.50:6; 75:7; Is. 33:22), the Lord Jesus Christ, will sit on His Throne, and separate those who loved Him and His Word, and served Him from those who mocked and reviled Him, His Word and His people, and blatantly and purposefully went against all His Word, to serve Satan and other false gods/demons (Matt. 25:31-46).
A final few verses of loving warning to those who think this was all about “hatred” for those living in that vile lifestyle, and other ungodly living that will bring them into perdition:
“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the Lake of Fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
“And I saw a great White Throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the (spiritually) dead were judged out of those things where were written in the books, according to their works.
“And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and Death and Hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged EVERY MAN according to their works.
“And Death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. THIS is the SECOND death (the first was the death of the body of the human).
“And WHOSOEVER was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire” (Revelation 20:10-15).
