The Holy Spirit impressed upon my spirit that this topic needed to be presented THIS WEEK. I was set to publish another article, but I have to listen to GOD!
Yep, this one’s going to get some high remarks! But, before you go off on me, I have no intention of calling anyone any names, nor am I judging. This is a subject which is obviously a very ‘touchy’ one, and boy, oh boy…do we know that people have been very emotional in the past couple years.
This is an observation and others are noticing it too, not just myself. All one need do is get behind the wheel of a car! My husband said he thinks I am like a magnet to all the people who have road rage.
CONSCIENCE
1. the inner sense of what is right or wrong in one’s conduct or motives, impelling one toward right action:
to follow the dictates of conscience.

2. the complex of ethical and moral principles that controls or inhibits the actions or thoughts of an individual.

3. an inhibiting sense of what is prudent:
I’d eat another piece of pie but my conscience would bother me.
COMPASSION
1. a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.

1 in 25 People Have No Conscience?
That’s what statistics seem to reveal! That’s a huge number. So, a person without any conscience is called a “psychopath”. This is a title given to those by a psychologists.

MIT suggests:

Psychiatrists and neuroscientists are making extraordinary advances in understanding the psychopathic or sociopathic mind, a mind that lacks empathy, compassion, fear, or remorse. In some of the most exciting research, advanced brain-imaging techniques are revealing that certain sections of psychopaths’ brains seem to be misfiring.

Psychopaths have no empathy. They are said to only feel the basic emotions such as anger, hatred, lust and very basic fear. But why? Their limbic brain is not working properly.

Get this!
In psychopathic patients the sections which generate feelings of empathy…remain DARK! Actually showing little or no activity.
Similar defects appear in the frontal cortex, (reasoning center) which is the part of the brain which regulate impulsive and irrational behavior.

Of course. NOT EVERYONE demonstrating these brain abnormalities ends up being a killer!

And not all killers are psychopaths!

Of course, some people have broken families where their emotional development was impaired…or other kinds of trauma took place. And even so, they may just have emotional issues with trust, or whatever.

Now, most people know someone who have the three traits suggested. Charm-Use-Discard. And even still, they are not considered automatic killers!

But, these kinds of people in question are said to have….”dead fish eyes”. Like your staring into a black hole.
Wheeew! Now that we established that…moving on.

good-and-evil
Why did The Holy Spirit impress upon me the need to write this?

I just got the whillies! You know, the goosies? Where the hair stands on end. Because the thought was…does this DARKNESS imply ‘evil’? Makes sense, doesn’t it?

It reminds me of the occasional news story of the neighbor who says, “He seemed very normal to me, just kept to himself is all.” Another statistic? There are more men psychopaths than women. Books from Robert D. Hare (who actually has ‘checklists’) which struck me (another whillies/goosies moment)…the “Sociopath Next Door”.
You just never know, right?
There is of course clear evidence that psychopaths are different from other people, in their behavior, thought processes, and language.
Lack of compassion being one of these checklist points.

Nature_of_Good_and_Evil_by_Young_Wolf
The TRUTH?
GOD didn’t create killers? Or psychopaths!
When HE created humans, HE gave them and all other creatures the right to have free will to do whatever they please, with consequences. GOD does not make a person sin…the person chooses to do so. So, serial killers would be breaking one, if not many of the 10 commandments.

I personally know someone from my past and her son, who was diagnosed with cancer. She told me that she stopped believing in GOD because how could GOD give an innocent child cancer! And even though I couldn’t give her a good answer at the time, now I realize that GOD have a reason for everything. We are given trials and tribulations as a stepping stone. Growing is part of GOD’s Plan. Before you freak out….no, the boy did not die. So, how do you perceive this?

Is there a point in time where the ‘normal’ person turns into a psychopath? When does the brain go “dark”?

Is this trend increasing? People going mad? Is that why the world is turning dark? How do we protect ourselves? Do you know someone with “dark” eyes? If so, what do you do?

Does society have a role in this subject? Television programming play are part? Interactive video games?

We’ve all heard of the people who said, “GOD made me do it” or “The Devil made me do it”.

Is sin just a universal human problem. Universal? Yes. Just human? No. The angels also decided to sin. Lucifer’s pride got the best of him and he decided he was not going to follow GOD. The Scriptures tell us he took 1/3 of the angels with him. Satan did all this by directing and influencing emotions, feelings and desires.

All creatures of GOD have the ability to choose/free will choice.

Sin springs from uncontrolled desires.

1. GOD can forgive ALL sinners.

2. Becoming a follower of Jesus Christ does not impart perfection. Humans commit crimes, Christians are human, Christians do commit crimes.

3. Love the sinner, hate the sin.

Jesus-Is-the-Answer-1
1 Peter 5:8-9 (KJV)

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

Ephesians 6 (KJV)
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The word, ‘pauper’ is not one we use on a regular basis here in the United States. It’s something which our country has not seen or experienced in many years, but that is changing.
The actual term came from the English Poor Laws, and it was the usage of charitable assistance provided by either public or private avenues. Although it hasn’t came to that point quite yet, it’s quickly becoming hard to make ends meet.
Ahhh…the daydream of playing the lottery and becoming rich! Many people I know play the lottery. They spend their hard-earned money on the one-in-a-billion chance at becoming ‘rich’. Someone told me once that GOD doesn’t give everyone that kind of money because they wouldn’t know how to use it…

10. Urooj Khan, $1 million
46-year-old Chicago native Urooj Khan had sworn off lottery tickets, yet took one last try at the lotto and actually won in June 2012. Khan decided to accept one lump sum instead of receiving his earnings in payments, and was awaiting his check when tragedy struck. After the check was sent on July 19, 2012, Khan mysteriously passed away the very next day. Medical examiners determined his death was due to natural causes, finding no trace of foul play. But when a relative urged the police to conduct further investigation and testing, it was discovered that Khan had actually ingested cyanide, a lethal poison. The bitter white powder which can kill a person in minutes was reason to change the case to a homicide investigation which is still open today.

9. Callie Rogers, $3 million
Many 16 year old girls are too busy with school, boys and arguing with parents to even think of playing the lottery. But Callie Rogers knew she would win one day, and her luck paid off when she won £1.9 million (3 million U.S) in her UK hometown. Callie naively began spending her money on everything she could think of; clothes, parties, vacations, breast implants…oh and the good old cocaine addiction. Nearly six years later, Callie was broke and in debt- she attempted to take her own life twice. After recovering from her traumatic experience, she took a job as a made to support herself and her two children. Poor girl.

8. Evelyn Adams, $5.4 million
Evelyn Adams was a very rare case in lottery winning history. She was fortunate enough to win the jackpot twice, earning a total of $5.4 million in 1985 and 1986. But the ever so classic gambling addiction began to kick in as soon as Adams cashed in her earnings- and Atlantic City became her second home. After a series of unfortunate investments and a losing streak at the casino, Evelyn found herself extremely broke and living in a trailer park.

7. Alex and Rhoda Toth, $13 million
1990 was the year that married couple Alex and Rhoda Toth chose their $13 million lotto ticket. As they opted to receive $666,666 a year for 20 years, things seemed to be going extremely well for the newly wealthy couple. After a spending spree in Las Vegas, the couple returned to their home state of Florida to purchase a new home and plenty of land. But 16 years later, they were officially broke! Alex was arrested numerous times for growing marijuana plants and writing bad checks. A couple of legal troubles later, and they were down to living in a tiny trailer on a half-acre of land (their only source of electricity was a wire connected from their cars engine to the trailer). In 2006 they were caught for tax evasion, and sadly Alex passed away while awaiting trial.

6. Michael Carroll, $15 million
One of the youngest lottery winners ever, UK born Michael Carroll won won his fortune at the age of 19 – which many would feel is an extremely young age to become an instant millionaire. Carroll (who was a garbageman before) began using his fortune on his family, purchasing them new homes and gifts. He later began to blow money on his serious addictions to crack cocaine, gambling and prostitutes-at least four women a day. Fast forward to eight years later, and Michael is back to hauling trash as a garbageman, which he says he is happier because of his journey. Highly doubt it.

5. William Post, $16.2 million
The year was 1988, and the $16.2 million jackpot was won by Mr. William Post of Pennsylvania. But Post was not so bright when it came to his spending habits and money management. Two weeks after he received his first annual payment of 500,000, he had already purchased a restaurant, a used-car lot, and an airplane..Yes you read that correctly. And within three months he was half a million dollars in debt, but seemed to have bigger problems than his spending issues. Posts brother was arrested for hiring a hitman to kill him and his sixth wife…you also read that correctly. His landlady convinced the naive Post to hand over a third of his earnings, while is family convinced him to invest in horrible business ventures. After facing a jail stint for firing his gun at a bill collector, William eventually filed for bankruptcy. “Everybody dreams of winning money, but nobody realizes the nightmares that come out of the woodwork, or the problems,” Post said in 1993, according to the Washington Post.

4. Janite Lee, $18 million
Janite Lee was an immigrant from South Korea who worked at a wig shop before she hit the Illinois lottery in 1993. However she was a different type of winner, as she wanted to spend her money on something other than herself. After she moved her family into a million dollar gated community, she spent her $620,000 a year earnings on many philanthropic efforts. She contributed a lot of money into political parties, which found her dining with Bill Clinton and Al Gore. She also donated to the education system, which earned her name on a reading room at Washington University School Of Law. Looks like not everyone goes crazy once they win! However, Lee later sold the rights to her annual lottery lump sum payment plan, and less than a decade later, she was in bankruptcy court. Lee mismanaged her money, and in 2001 she filed for Chapter 7 with less than $800 dollars to her name- and more than $2.5 million in debt!

3. Jeffrey Dampier, $20 million
When Jeffrey Dampier won the lotto in 1996, he pledged to use the money to bring his family closer together, relocating his parents and family to his newly purchased Florida estate. He then invested his earnings into a gourmet popcorn store in Tampa, and employed some of his family members to work there. Tragedy struck in 2005, when Jeffrey was called by his his sister-in-law Victoria Jackson to come over to her house and help with car trouble. When he arrived to the home, Jeffrey was confronted by Victoria and her boyfriend Nathaniel, who used a pistol to force him back into the car, ultimately kidnapping him. They tied his hands with his shoelaces, and drove him to a dead-end street where Nathaniel gave Victoria the gun and told her to shoot Dampier, or he would. After Victoria pulled the trigger and killed Dampier, the couple ran away on foot. They were soon caught, seeing as Dampier was last heard from telling his family he was headed to see Victoria. The couple was arrested three days later and both convicted of murder. Victoria Jackson received three life sentences in September 2006, and Nathaniel Jackson received life in 2007.

2. Billie Bob Harrell Jr., $31 million
Billie Bob was a Pentecostal preacher working as a bag boy in Home Depot before he won a staggering $31 million in 1997. Upon winning, Billie spent modestly, purchasing a new home and car, but nothing out of the ordinary. The trouble began when the preacher began loaning out money to his newly discovered friends and family who claimed they needed help. Not even two years later, Billie Bob found himself completely broke, because surprisingly no one paid him the money back as they had promised to do (shocker). When he and his wife Barbara separated due to the stress and financial woes, Harrell couldn’t handle the world any longer. He ended up committing suicide 20 months after his big win.

1. Jack Whittaker, $315 million
When Jack Whittaker won the Powerball in 2002, he went down as the man who one the largest jackpot by a single ticket–a total of $315 million! The 55 year old West Virginia native owned Diversified Enterprises Construction, and was already worth a reported $17 million before his big win. After winning, the devout religious man gave 10 % of his winnings to Christian charities, and used 14 million to create the Jack Whittaker foundation-not sure why he used his own name. The woman who was working the counter when he purchased the ticket was showered with gifts as well; he bought her a $123,000 house, a new Dodge Ram Truck, and gave her $50,000 cash.
Soon after his record-breaking when, trouble began to surround Jack in all ways. Less than a year after winning, a couple of thieves broke into Jack’s car while it was parked at a strip club, and got away with $545,000 in cash which Whittaker carried around in a suitcase. Why have all that cash in one place? We’re still asking the same question. Soon after, two managers of the exact same strip club he was first robbed, were arrested for conspiring to slip drugs into Jack’s drink and then rob him. It seems as if Jack would have learned his lesson of how much cash to carry around, but he didn’t. In January of 2004, Jack’s car was once again robbed, this time the thieves managed to take another $200 thousand, which was eventually recovered by the police.
Months later 18 year old Jessie Tribble, who was the boyfriend of Jack’s granddaughter Brandi, was found dead in Whittaker’s West Virginia home. The coroner’s determined that Jessie had died of an overdose on a combination of oxycodone, methadone, meperidine, and cocaine. Only three months later, his own granddaughter Brandi had suffered the same fate as she was found dead at the house of a male friend after being reported missing for a week. Her body was found wrapped in a plastic tarpaulin and dumped behind an abandoned van, yet no one was charged with murder-she also suffered an overdose. Jack was completely devastated after the death of Brandi, whom he had practically raised since birth. “I wish I’d torn that ticket up,” he told reporters at the time.
Sadly the hard and devastating times were far from over for Jack, as he was sued by Caesars Atlantic City casino for bouncing $1.5 million in checks to cover his gambling losses. As he was battling the lawsuit with his very own counter suit, his own daughter Ginger (mother of Brandi) was found dead in Daniels, West Virginia. While foul play was not involved, the actual cause of death is still a mystery. Today, it is said that Jack still lives in West Virginia, but is completely broke. $315 million down the drain.

Oh, many of these people will admit that “It’s A Curse”.
What became of these poor people was a great lesson to us. Sadly, many do not learn that money will lead one to ruin.
The one and only time I ever played the lottery was awkward. I walked in, and got the form…and immediately I felt strange. I didn’t know how to put the number in the form, silly right? My family member helped me and I paid the money and we left. Why was it my first and last time? Because to me, it’s a waste of time, and money. I could be spending that money on something more useful.
At my job I hear the phrase, “If I won a million dollars, I would quit this job.” I hear it at least once a day. NO KIDDING. And I’ve even play along…imagining how it would feel to not have to worry about paying my bills, and buying food. You see, I’m not better than anyone else but I worry about the necessities. It’s hard to make ends meet…even with two incomes. Right now, we live off of just mine.

My husband recently had major neck surgery and he will most likely never work again considering it was the first of many he will need. I’ve had seven surgeries myself and was at the point where I wanted, no needed to get disability when he had to have his neck surgery. He has a 9 inch scar from the top on his neck to the mid point of his shoulders. Every disc in his neck was shot, and they needed to do the neck in order to stabilize his spine to be able to do the rest of the surgeries. So, I must work…I don’t have a choice. And there are weeks which pass where I’m not sure if I will make rent. I only make $2.13 an hour. No, that’s not a joke. I’m a server. We literally live off of tips. And most people don’t realize that. So, I work hard to make every dollar that the customer thinks my service was worth.

So you see, I take money very serious but I don’t worship it. I ask GOD to give me everything I have. I will be driving to work, praying and letting GOD know that I trust HIM to make sure we have what we need. And I know I’m not the only one who lives like this!
So, money is important but it doesn’t control me, and it shouldn’t control you. Many times we don’t even recognize the behaviors that may be detrimental to our lives. We must intentionally control our thoughts that flow out of our mind. We must, because they shape our values.

1 Timothy 6 (KJV)
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Ecclesiastes 5 (KJV)
10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

The flesh can’t help but make you want more…
Therefore the flesh must be governed.

Hebrew 11 (KJV)
6, so those who abound in faith, will abound in other graces and good works also; and this will work and show itself by love.

MONEY CANNOT BUY EVERYTHING

Matthew 16 (KJV)
26 What will it benefit a man if he gains the whole world yet loses his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life?

Have you ever heard of the story of the man who was a billionaire? He had more money than he could ever spend in a lifetime. But, he became ill. He spent years going from hospital to hospital trying every treatment known to man, but he remained sick still. Don’t you think he would have given it all up to be well again?

THERE ARE NO WORDS
But, they through their own poverty might be rich; not in temporal, but in spiritual. They are enriched by Him with the graces of His Spirit; with the truths of The Gospel. Him? Him, who? Jesus Christ, The Son of GOD.
Seriously! There are no words which can explain the transformation in your soul when you truly change your life over to GOD. Making GOD first in your life gives you the ability to see the unseen, hear the unheard and feel the unfelt. Meaning? GOD will open up to you. GOD will give you HIS secrets. GOD will reveal love to you like you’ve never felt before. It’s an unconditional love which humans can’t express or show. Flesh keeps us from that…sadly.
That may not make sense to you but it’s true.
Happiness which GOD gives you cannot be purchased. Nor does it exist in a place in which you can travel.

If you don’t know Jesus Christ….The Son of GOD then it’s time you do. The Prince of Peace came into this world as the Loving Pauper…
“Jesus Christ, I know that I have broken Your laws and my sins have separated me from You. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward You. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. GOD, I believe that Your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become my Savior, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send Your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus Christ name I pray, Amen.”

GOD’s Word goes so far as to even identify what type of person we should avoid, stay away from, and especially never consider as a viable marriage partner. The list is timeless, and can be your guide to a joyous Biblical marriage.

Bad Boys and Men Look and Act Like This

Now, for the other side of the fence. What type of man would God say to stay away from, avoid imitating and setting any attention or affection upon? By the way, I do believe there are demons for each sin!

Beware of becoming a Lustful Person Proverbs 6:26-27. For by means of a harlot A man is reduced to a crust of bread; And an adulteress will prey upon his precious life. 27 Can a man take fire to his bosom, And his clothes not be burned? Watch their eyes. What turns their head? If a man can’t resist looking at a woman, married or not, he won’t stop those wandering eyes, wandering hands, unsatisfied longings. A lustful man chases anyone for merely external appeal, looks for cheap and quick thrills; and will only grow more lustful, more unsatisfied, and more ungodly.

Beware of becoming a Foolish Person Proverbs 10:23. To do evil is like sport to a fool, But a man of understanding has wisdom. You can spot this type of fellow because he always clowns around, always wants attention, always seeks to dominate conversations, always seeks to catch the spot light, shows off, brags, takes needless risks, always daring others, never respects authority. In fact, a foolish child is a child who cannot control themselves when outside the reach of their parents. Your child should sit with you until they are mature enough to sit alone without talking, writing notes, giggling, poking, and drawing others attention away from the teacher, the pastor, the leader, or the ministry.

Open Bible, with textured granite background.

Most Purchased-Least Read
The Bible was once the most purchased book in the world.
According to Guinness World Records, the Bible is the best-selling book of all time with over 5 billion copies sold and distributed. But, the number of daily sales are decreasing…it’s true!

Open Bible, with textured granite background.

The Bible is the least read book in the world.

We live in a time when technology has taken over! It’s taken over a lot of people’s brains! At one time it was just the computer, everyone was infatuated with it…then it became the game boxes…Nintendo, Sega Genesis, XBOX, and now it’s our phones because we can do all of those previous tasks which was individually mastered into one powerful little hand-held telephone. Yes, telephone. Once we use to spin a numbered rotary dial around what seemed like 100 times to place a call and now we can do what some call ‘miracles’. It’s possessed our every waking moment to the point that states are placing laws against using them while driving. Notice I said ‘possess’…because most people don’t realize that’s what it is! Demons work through the air! They can take possession of applications which glide through the air. They do it with such ease that you don’t even notice it!
So, with all these technological possessions…who has time to read a book? Most people even put books on their phone, but the least of which is The Bible. It’s true. People would rather read what’s been posted on FACEBOOK by their friends and associates. There are apps you can download that put The Bible on your phone, but if you look at the download specs compared to others..it’s minute in comparison.

why-study-the-bible

The Bible is the most misunderstood book in the world.
In 1551, French printer Robert Stephanus added verse numbers to the chapter divisions inserted in Scripture in the 13th century. But, it also allowed for individuals to take verses out of context. The mysteries of The Bible are too numerous to count. GOD promised us that HE would reveal these secrets in the end days and this is exactly what is happening.
If you look at The Bible with spiritual warfare in mind, and add the fallen angel scenario then you begin to get the picture. Some people say The Bible is 1/3 prophecy…well, I say it’s 100%. It all pertains to today. It was leading up to what the world is experiencing now…it’s connected like a puzzle. How can people fall asleep in church when these kinds of facts are becoming common knowledge? I promise you…there’s not one verse in the WHOLE BIBLE that is not meant for us to reveal! Some people even realize that a single verse can have a certain duality about it. It’s true. This is how GOD works! HE is a multi-tasker! And HIS WORD is revealed on many levels. But, sadly people don’t see it.

BUT HOW CAN THIS BE?

Oh, with Satan as the ruler of this wicked ball of dirt, it’s not only possible but it’s a reality. Fact: The Qur’an has billions of copies sold…

There are more witches in this world than ever before. It was once thought to be a Pagan issue…but there’s no such thing as good witch/bad witch. Pagans, witches, warlocks, etc…anyone who doesn’t believe in GOD is riding the fence of hell. GOD gives us all free will, even the angels. This is why we have a spiritual war. But, there comes a time when GOD has dealt all the cards, and you can’t play poker face with GOD. HE knows your heart.

bible-01

The world has demons, monsters and all kinds of creatures of old scurrying around. Really, they are all demonic because if they’re not on GOD’S side, then their against HIM! And the veil is thinning between the spiritual and natural, the closer we get to Judgment Day. And as that day draws nigh, the demons are breaking through more and more. Add that to the demonic rituals taking place all over this world and it’s no wonder we feel the pangs of the Earth on a daily basis. Uncontrollable weather, volcanoes, earthquakes, storms, tornadoes,…it’s all going crazy.
There are more possessions than ever before. In fact, there are three levels of possession and 100% of the people in this world are experiencing one type or another. This is why we are to perform daily deliverance! ON OURSELVES!! We have a protective hedge from GOD surrounding us and protecting us, and then someone manages to have demons abnormally attacking them – then my conclusion is – that there has to be some type of specific reason that this has been allowed to occur with these demons – and that specific reason will be their legal right.

There are more people who deny GOD than ever before. Satan set up false religions long, long ago. With names such as Horus, Baal, Molech, Dagon, and add the current ‘alien’ techniques to the facade, the name of Jesus Christ has been driven through the mud. The current agenda is the false Jesus, Sananda. He’s one of the Ascended Masters. There have been many in the Name of The One and Only, but this one will be the last false Jesus, but THE REAL JESUS CHRIST is coming to set the record straight. So, it’s easy to see how so many people are led astray. I believe we live in the time called, The Great Falling Away. Why? Because even those who don’t believe in GOD, or HIS Son, Jesus Christ…will believe in the coming false messiah. He will perform miracles and cause the people of earth to gasp at his accomplishments. this is why The Bible tells us he is a thief….and a copy cat. There is nothing unique about him…for all of this time Satan has spent copying The REAL DEAL! So, beware.
The Good Book or as I love to call it, “GOD’S Holy Word”…is the most persecuted book ever! Right now….the One World Religion is being set into place. And part of the center-point of this is the Muslim faith. The Roman Catholic priests of old invented it…and it’s part of their agenda. The Bible will be put aside more and more. Soon, we will not even be able to quote it. Or be able to own a Bible!

Did you know:
Even though it may well be the most purchased book in the world, it’s full of lies! Some may disagree but once Satan convinced man to change GOD’S Word, the True Doctrine…it became the doctrines of Devils. More than 90 English translations of the Bible are in print, and this allows for The Precious Word of GOD to be changed…because changing one word can reflect in a whole different meaning to the original verse.
Because of the changes made in these different versions, many are sitting in their pews without the slightest idea that key doctrinal statements they hear week after week have nothing in common with Scriptural teaching.

Did you know:
The most bought….is The Bible but that’s decreasing. The second is Harry Potter. WITCHCRAFT! Pure evil. And what’s worse is it’s enticing our children into performing rituals and spells. It’s teaching them witchcraft! Do some research if you don’t believe these words.

Why is it the least read book in the world? Satan has hold of this world. And he’s squeezing it tightly, and increasing that hold daily. Christian persecution has never seen such an increase as it is now. And it exponentially increased the very day that Obama passed the Gay Marriage Law. Since that day, you can actually research the articles, and watch the videos of it happening, because it’s rising daily.

Increasingly rare is the church or ministry that encourages its members to study the Textbook of their faith, let alone take along a Bible to worship services and prove what the minister is saying. Sadly, ministers don’t like to be challenged…but are told by the Bible to be humble. This pervasive malpractice is one of the reasons that popular error continues to go unchallenged and uncorrected.

THE BIBLE – You are responsible for your own understanding and what you do with it. You are responsible for your connection with GOD. Ask Jesus Christ, The Son of GOD to come into your heart! Ask Him to forgive you of all your sins. Jesus Christ is THE ONLY PATH TO GOD.

Lastly,
Don’t let anyone ever convince you that the King James Version of the Bible is full of lies. They would have you believe that Knights of Templar, Freemasons…etc, have changed it to the degree that no Bible has the correct interpretation of what GOD intended it to be. But, when GOD led me to do this blog site…The Holy Spirit led me to this quote:

Different people tell you different things, but I seriously believe that there are things you can do to lose possession of your soul…we also have the fact that demons are forever trying to steal them. Others will tell you that’s impossible too…but truly…what is their goal then? Here is some helpful information on this subject…

Lately within the entertainment industry we have heard from numerous entertainers that  have confessed to selling their souls to the Devil. The motivation has been to gain some sort of worldly advantage; success, fame and ultimate self glory.  Now such a practice is older than sin itself and has affected people through out all time. In fact Adam and Eve where the first to make such a deal.
When Adam and Eve sinned, their actions created a separation from God. As the glory of God left them, so too did the godly compass that once inspired them to make certain choices. The absence of God’s goodness and holy character brought about self-awareness and as a result, self centered motives began to dominate man’s life style. Selfish reasoning and a distorted perspective became the barometer for what they would deem as “just the way life works”. This caused Adam and Eve to lose touch with reality and their pursuits, both natural and spiritual, suffered for it. It was the spiritual side of man that caused the most concern. Without a proper connection with the Spirit of God, he looked for another spiritual master.
The First Substitute Savior
Prior to the fall and possibly before the earth was actually perfected, God was forced to bring judgment upon an angelic creature who sought to raise himself up as equal with God. This creature is known by many names, all of which reveal various aspects of his character. So let’s look at some of these traits that have been allowed to mold man’s perceptions of life but also seduced us along the way.

devil's_trick_world_exist_abstract_3d_and_2560x1440_hd-wallpaper-1140606

The Serpent’s Created Form
Originally the Serpent had been given attributes that described his potential as a heavenly being. These characteristics included the following:

• He is a spirit being who moves through spiritual and natural realms.
• He is an angel and displays angelic glory.
• He is great in power and intelligence.
• He does not reproduce so he remains genderless.
• He organizes by rank.
• He once reflected the glory of heaven and even had a capacity to worship God.

Mankind is often charmed by these angelic qualities and though the Serpent tempts us with his unique traits, these things become a destructive force which denies mankind true life and liberty.
One other characteristic not mentioned above; the Serpent has also been given freewill. If you have ever wondered how God could make a creature that became so evil, then please consider that it had to do with this universal attribute. Freewill permits us to make choices that move us towards God or allow us to walk away from Him. As this angelic creature walked away from God it left him spiritually dark and void; a dynamic that has also infected mankind.

The Serpent’s Fallen Qualities
The Serpent also has additional qualities which have influenced man in the negative. Even as the Bible reveals to us God’s qualities based on His many Names, a similar dynamic reveals the Serpent by his own titles. Lucifer, the Prince of the power of the Air, the Guardian cherub, the Father of lies, and the Accuser of the Brethren are all titles which reveal certain aspects of his fallen character. Mankind remains an easy target for many of these fallen attributes since we were all born under the influence of the world system.

Lucifer
“Lucifer” means “light-bearer” or “shining one” and this explains why scripture says he can manifest as an angel of light. In fact it is his intended purpose to hide many of his agendas in light. This can be described as initially creating a smoke screen of seemingly good and positive intentions. Yet what actually unfolds is a spiritual seduction, a manipulation of the senses, which offers man a fleshy way to be saved. This is what fueled Adam and Eve’s choice to rebel in the garden in the first place; it “felt right” or it “looked good” to them. As they surrendered to the light of the Serpent’s seduction, it was a powerful delusion, one that still remains captivating today.

Genesis 3:6 When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.

The Prince of the Power of the Air
The many references in scripture to heaven and heavenly realms, places the Serpent’s airy domain right in the middle. (For the purpose of our study we will refer to this realm as “second heaven”.) This spiritual zone resides between God’s throne in heaven; (third heaven, 2 Cor. 12:2) and Adam’s physical place of dominion which is subject to the earth and sky (first heaven Revelation 21:1).

Ephesians 3:10
His (God’s) intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms,

Second heaven actually represents a place of convergence between Adam’s created order and the spiritual influences of the Serpent and his demons. There goes the neighborhood!

1 Peter 5:8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

The term “the Prince of the Power of the Air” is then a reference to his domain and a description of his second heaven reach. Because he is a spirit he has the ability to manipulate that which passes through both natural and spiritual air. Thus he seeks to influence the world by altering verbal or written communication, radio waves, frequency, circuitry, electricity, sight, sound, light, touch, temperature, and thought. Notice that these things are all common elements that serve in mankind’s domain; they are not evil in themselves. However as the Serpent rides along on the airwaves and interjects his opinion, his spiritual seduction usually has no problem finding converts.
Subsequently, as man begins to process life choices, while subject to this added interference, he tends to accept a world view that is in fellowship with spiritual error. Yet this is also the place that man’s mind becomes a stronghold; if a spirit can own the mind then it can turn a man anyway it wants.

Guardian Cherub
When given place, the Serpents unseen influence will also add a spiritual veil. A discourse found in Ezekiel provides us with some understanding.

Ezekiel 28:14-15 You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.

This passage has multiple layers, beginning with a rebuke to the prince of Tyre, but it also explains how this prince was emulating the nature of the Serpent. Verse 14 explains the parallel.

liberty_of_soul_by_veinsofmercury-d646fqk

Ezekiel 28:14

Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

The amplified version says it this way:

“You were the anointed cherub that covers with overshadowing wings, and I set you so.”

The Serpent’s natural instinct is to “cover us.”

The word “Cover” in Hebrew means, “to shut in, to block, to screen, or to lay over.” Subjection to the Serpent and his system of control allows him to shut in, block, screen, or lay over a life. This issue is what actually motivates many to find comfort in the world system, if not in all systems offering muted glory. Lucifer’s long standing presence remains a familiar and comforting spiritual blanket.
Demons
Now apart from his direct intervention in a life, the Serpent carries out many of his plans through a regiment of fallen creatures. The Bible does not clearly explain what these spiritual creatures are; it simply acknowledges that they have been present throughout the history of mankind. Yet there are two schools of thought on the subject.
The first is founded upon an event where the Serpent pulled down a third of the stars (Angels) from heaven:

Revelation 12:4a His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth…

freedom-of-soul

This is reinforced by another verse;
Matthew 25:41 “Then he (God) will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

The second is in reference to the book of Genesis explaining how the sons of God came down and had relations with earthly women. Their offspring where called the “Nephilim”.

Genesis 6:4
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

It is believed that this hybrid race eventually died out and their disembodied spirits now roam the earth, looking for others to inhabit.
There is a strong possibility that both of these scenarios can be spiritually active. Ephesians implies that there are a number of other powers that seek to interrupt our lives.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

This variety of fallen powers has many destructive agendas, but we usually attribute all their activities to being the work of but one Devil. He is actually a singular creature, but he is the head and driving force of a dark kingdom that now spiritually dominates. Knowing the true origin of demons doesn’t seem to be of great importance; however there are enough references to the effects of evil spirits, celestial beings and demons throughout Old and New Testaments that we should give the matter our attention.
Let’s look at how these powers can negatively affect our lives.

Territorial, Familiar and Generational Spirits
In order to manipulate our world demons often interact with men in the form of; territorial, familiar, and generational spirits. These powers are committed to denying us any of the benefits that life has to offer us in Jesus. As they apply pressure to our humanity they come with the intention of afflicting our physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual health. Here is how they commonly position themselves:

Territorial Spirits
There exists a network of demons in the world today that influence people, households, organizations, cities, states, governments, countries, nations, and continents, all of which reveal territorial rule. Through geographical positioning and oversight they seek to affect our world view. Daniel 10:20 refers to two examples of territorial powers; the prince of Persia and the prince of Greece.
Let’s consider how territorial powers came about.
Though the earth belongs to God and all there in, it was His intention that mankind should care for His property, based on an initial commission. However as Adam and Eve yielded to the Serpent they handed their stewardship over to the enemy. We can mark that this transference of authority took place in the following portion of scripture.

prob

Luke 4:5-6 The devil led him (Jesus) up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. 6And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to.

It is interesting to note that Jesus did not refute the Serpent’s claim. Who gave this authority to him?
Adam and Eve did.

Ever since then the Serpent has manipulated the physical world with the intention of bringing mankind into spiritual bondage. The question that is now on the table is; did you personally make a deal with the dark side, has your family made a deal, or what about your ancestors? Any one of these sources could have invited an evil influence into your life. Riches, fame and power are just a part of what we seek, but a more subtle motivation remains all about gaining “control”; we want to control life, relationships, and circumstances all for selfish reasons and Devil backs up many of those desires.
In truth every one of us has handed over a part of our soul to the Devil. If we fell in love with the world and its many perks then we fell for a surrogate savior. It is for this very reason that Jesus had to come. He knew that mankind was doomed forever unless He could provide us a way back to God. Let me show you how we get free of the world and anyone of our past soulish contracts.

Untitled1

The Bible tells us that a contract of marriage is enforce as long as the parties are alive. After death the contract gets broken.  Now this reference to marriage is just an analogy for seeing something of greater value. If you sold your soul to the Devil then the way of escape his clutches is also a matter of passing through death. All contracts are nullified at the time of death. Now please don’t stop reading at this point. I’m not suggesting that you have to go kill yourself in order to be free. Instead our freedom from unwanted contracts is based on trusting Jesus with the journey. You see the whole basis of the gospel message rests on Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. In one instance His death paid the penalty for our sins. You see just as through one man sin entered the world sin spread to all men for all have sinned. So those that come to trust Jesus as their way out of eternal punishment are able to find a new way to live.
Secondly Jesus’ death on the Cross put an end to the Devils ownership of the human race. Hence those that accept Jesus as Savior are also being freed of a terrible task master.
Thirdly those that trust Jesus with salvation are also participating in Jesus’ to gain His life. To put this in simple terms once you accept Jesus as Savior He is putting to death your old life with all its bad contracts and He is then making you a new creation. Here, check out these verses as proof;

2 Corinthians 5:14-15
For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

Romans 7:5-6 For when we were controlled by the sinful nature, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in our bodies, so that we bore fruit for death. 6 But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.

Once we let the Cross separate us from our former way of life, the resurrection power of God begins to move in our hearts, minds and actions. Jesus raises us up into a new and living way which is empowered by His Spirit.

Colossians 2:12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.

Getting your soul back is really about handing your soul over to Jesus and letting Him make these changes within you. He offers us supernatural change which frees us from sin, frees us from our past, and breaks all those bad contracts we made with the Devil. What a wonderful gift! Our present and future lives can now be free of all sorts of added clutter and the things that have lied to us about life with God.

Romans 6:4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

The miracle of the Gospel (the good news) has offered us a way out from the trappings of our old man and entrance into abundant life with Jesus. If you are interested in getting the Devil off your back then ask for a better salvation in Christ Jesus. Say this out loud;

verse-graphic-no-other-name-550

Application
Jesus, I repent of my many sins and ask that you would be my Savior. I ask that you wash me clean of the evil I have done, take away my old sin nature and  break the many bad contracts that I once made with the Devil.  Jesus I sold my soul to the Devil and I now want it back. Come into my heart and be my new Lord. I want to be able to live with you forever.

This moment in time can be a turning point. Keep in mind that you did nothing to save yourself but simply believed that Jesus was powerful enough to set you free. He is the one that saves you and He is the one that unravels the hold that the Devil has had on you. So call upon Him regularly and from this day forward and if the Devil gives you any trouble then tell him to go away because you now belong to Jesus.
