The Chakra Opening Epidemic! No Quick Fixes Will Help!

22 Feb

jail

Below are three examples of 3 men who have engaged in spiritual practices to open their chakras. I find that men do not want to take the time to work on themselves. In fact, they never give me much time to help them.

Case 1

I found a web site that says the opening of a Chakra is Demonic.The Day I “Got Saved” (He does not realize that the website he saw was mine, settingcaptivesfree.me)

My “Crown Chakra” was opened where I have often felt a tingling manifestation. I always thought of it as a manifestation of the Holy Spirit and have found it to be relative to the crown Chakra by google search. I did not seek to open a “chakra” on purpose by any means nor have come to understand much about this. This web site says they ” These Chakras” are supposed to be sealed.” I want to know if in your opinion this is a door way for demonization? Where can I find help? There is much more to my story that reflects demonic issues.. I think I need help.

My comment:  Those who are in churches that practice mysticism and call it “the anointing,”  take a serious look at this case.  The answer to his question is “yes.”  Charismatic Christianity can open your chakras and yes, it is a doorway to demonization.

Case 2: From the age of 18 to 20 I was extremely new age minded. Obsessed with Marijuana induced trance like meditation doing guided chakra opening meditations, felt energy pulsing at those chakra points, invested large money into crystals and whatnot. for 2 years I have been a Christian, first year I kept doing the chakra meditation stuff, one time I did it while I was on a 17 day water fast (I think I cant really remember too clearly) anyways at the end of the fast I was admitted to a psych hospital because they thought I was crazy ( I was acting pretty strange admittedly.)

My comment:  This man is in an entangled web and in serious danger. There are occult evil spirits and their are religious demons.  He is in a crossfire between them both, as there exists a competitive, hostile division in Satan’s camp between the witchcraft, occult spirits and the religious ones. In other words, two opposing groups of demons are fighting each other over him and he will find himself in great torment, as He is THEIR battleground!

Case 3
I just spoke with you with over the phone. I recently opened chakras over a year ago. And it’s become a complete curse. I have whole new perception about the world which is completely demonic but does not change. Energy flowing through my body that will actually move me. My thoughts feel as if they are not my own. A high level degree Freemason have manipulated my mind in a homeless shelter. Tried giving me false knowledge of Jesus Christ. I feel damned. I believe I am demon possessed. My whole family is separated as well. I’m fighting to live. When I fight this thing  takes holds and makes the perception feel as if I’m in hell. I’m living in mental health housing because of low income, illness and I would say this is too blame. I see all evil in the work when I want too see good. Please save me I don’t want too burn. Demonic dreams with succubus’s in which I denied them and every time they try and come back and keep me asleep I say in the name of Jesus and I wake up instantly.  I need to be exorcised by many Christians. As we are talking now I feel energy shooting down my spine and moving in my lower body. I feel it has made itself a home.

Comment:  Is this man mentally ill or demon possessed, or both???!!! Did he become demonized through the opening of his chakras, or was he already mentally ill when he did so?  He must have a diagnosis or he would not be living in mental health housing. 

All 3 of these men expected a quick fix.  Quick fixes have no lasting effect.  If you decide to seek my help then you must commit yourself to at least 6 months.

Lies and Fake News From Politicians

9 Feb

By Pastor Pam Sheppard of RESCUE Ministries

I was a public servant, working in government for 25 years, yet I had absolutely no interest in politics until I heard from the Lord in a dream I had in 2011. Briefly, I was shown that Russia would conduct cyber-warfare on the US during Barack Obama’s administration. I did not fully understand the dream when I saw my computer scramble, and Russians were outside my door. It looked in the dream like they had successfully invaded this country but there was no sign of military war and I was not yet familiar with the term “cyber warfare” or “digital espionage.”

Therefore,  I kept my eyes open on Obama for the next 5 years. Nevertheless, my interest in politics still waned until suddenly, it was announced on TV on October 7, 2016, that Russia had successfully hacked the Democratic National Convention and Hillary Clinton’s emails, just 3 months prior to the end of Obama’s presidential administration on January 20, 2017.

In 2011, I was so non-political that I did not even know who Vladimir Putin is.

Well, now, I know. I have my eye on him and a bunch of other despots.

Since October 7, 2016, I have continued to watch MSNBC for at least 3 hours a day, or more!!

Trump and Graham

One of the important revelations I have received in the last year and a half or so is that politicians cannot be trusted, particularly Republicans. The lies and fake scenarios are ruled by the love of money, which is the root of ALL evil, especially among politicians. In spite of the fact that he is a Republican, I have had high regards for Senator Lindsay Graham, perhaps because he is a close friend of Senator McCain, another Republican whom I deeply admire. So check THIS out from a New York Times article, dated January 5, 2018.

Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a senior committee member, told the Justice Department that they had reason to believe that a former British spy, Christopher Steele, lied to federal authorities about his contacts with reporters regarding information in a dossier, and they urged the department to investigate. The committee is running one of three congressional investigations into Russian election meddling, and its inquiry has come to focus on, in part, Mr. Steele’s explosive dossier that purported to detail Russia’s interference and the Trump campaign’s complicity.

Hopefully, Senator Lindsay Graham read the same testimonies obtained from Glen Simpson concerning Christopher Steele that I myself have read. I took the time to read several hundreds of pages because I can no longer depend on politicians to “interpret” anything for me so when it concerns Russia and what God revealed to me almost 7 years ago now, I go to the original documents and I read for myself. I don’t consider myself to be a more competent reader and interpreter of the facts than a Congressman or a US Senator. But what I can tell you after reading the testimonies of Glen Simpson is that
“there is a there, THERE!”

Simpson_Steele

Here is a summary of what stood out for me in the two testimonies of Fusion GPS Executive, Glen Simpson to the House and the Senate Investigative Committees concerning Christopher Steele and the 33 memos that have come to be known as the infamous dossier, and why I believe that both Simpson, the ex-journalist and Steele, the intelligence professional are  BOTH credible. Jesus Christ is the Truth and as such, He reveals to us all, that “truth is simple.”   So I believe the account is true because of the unexpected sequence of events found in Simpson’s testimony.

As testified under oath, the original purpose of Fusion GPS was routine to any opposition research assignment, this time, on Donald Trump. Whether Clinton paid for the research out of her personal fortune really does not matter. `Whether Fusion GPS was originally hired by “never Trump” Republicans also does not matter. Opposition research is a natural course of events during any campaign, usually conducted by both parties against its rivals and opponents. Similarly, Simpson’s testimony establishes that Fusion GPS did its routine review of paperwork and legal documents in order to trail candidate Trump’s international business dealings with the former Soviet Union and its Republics as well as with China,  Latin America and other countries. Once Fusion exhausted the paperwork trail in search of corruption evidence, Glen Simpson contracted with British Intelligence Officer Christopher Steele to conduct a human resource inquiry.

According to Simpson’s testimony, the truth became clear to me that both Steele and Simpson were shocked at the unexpected findings that emerged from interviews with various human resources. Suddenly, the original purpose of looking for financial corruption emerged into an un-imaginable direction: political collusion by digital espionage.

For example, in the very first memorandum dated June 20, 2016, Steele wrote, “Trump and his inner circle have accepted a regular flow of intelligence from the Kremlin, including on his democratic and other political rivals.” At that time, the public was not yet aware of the June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, where Donald Trump Jr. Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort were expecting to receive dirt on Hillary Clinton from a delegation of Russians.

What makes both Steele and Simpson credible to me involves their professionalism and the timing of their responses. As a seasoned intelligence person, Steele was professionally obligated and mandated by his profession to inform the FBI of his findings and he did so . in late June, early July, in other words, almost immediately.

Furthermore,  consider the fact that there are 33 memos. By the second memo dated July 26, 2016, Steele had already met with the FBI regarding the first memo. Simpson, the ex-journalist submitted to the professional opinion of Steele, the intelligence officer. Steele immediately discerned that what had been uncovered was a criminal matter. There was enough ‘there, there,” to question whether or not Trump was being blackmailed, if an illegal conspiracy was in operation to violate campaign laws, and most importantly, if these matters constituted a national security threat to the USA.

I also noted that Simpson and Steele had a long-standing professional relationship. Simpson describes Steele as “well-respected in his field.” He stated that Steele is a credible, highly respected investigator who does not exaggerate, make things up or sell bologna.

Looks to me like the bologna salesmen include Lindsey Graham and his Republican counterparts in their slimy actions to protect Trump for the sake of money and political favor by discrediting Christopher Steele, a man who ought to  receive both an apology along with an expression of gratitude from this nation.

We don’t serve bologna at RESCUE ministries. We believe in the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Our mandate is to help you prepare for these end times from a spirit, soul and body perspective, which includes politics.  To know more about us, call 888-818-1117 or complete the contact form below.

DOES GOD STILL HEAL?

28 Jul

You have probably run into an ad like the one below. Such types of posters are common all over the world.

Inline image 1

Many flock to these meetings, hoping that they will find remedies for illness affecting them or a loved one. Faith or spiritual healing has been around for a long time, some believe it’s a scam but to others it’s a show of faith in order to get a miracle from God.

Seeking supernatural help for healing is a practice that has happened both outside & in the church.

Brief history of Supernatural healing outside the church

Ancient Egypt and Yin & Yang philosophies in ancient Chinese healing traditions believe that illness came as a result of unbalanced human energy and returning the balance was key to bring healing back to the body.

In Egypt, several ritual practices that were done to bring about healing included chanting, drumming, dancing, incantations & hoaxes that would be done by priests. The Egyptian priests were supposed to be pure enough to connect with spirit guides who would let them know if the patient is ready to be healed or they should remain with their illness because it is intended to teach them a life lesson.

In ancient Egypt – a physical ailment was seen as an outward sign of an inner spiritual issue.

In Ancient Greece, around 4 BC many temples were built to worship a god called Asclepius who was referred to as the god of medicine & healing. Followers claimed they would receive healing just by entering the temples.

The rod of Asclepius, is a snake-entwined staff, commonly seen today as a symbol of medicine.

Inline image 2

Those who sought healing would offer sacrifices, and then spend a night in the holiest part of the temple. Any dreams or visions were reported to a priest who would interpret and prescribe the treatment the patient required. Some temples had sacred dogs to lick wounds.  There were also non-venomous snakes left to slither on the floor. These snakes were used in the healing rituals.

Healing practices such as Reiki, Yoga, healing touch used today share some similarities to the ancient practices..

Brief history of Supernatural healing in the church

When looking at the Old Testament, there are few references in relation to healing; a good example is when Prophet Elisha directed Naaman to dip himself in the river Jordan 7 times & he would be healed of leprosy. Naaman felt the instruction was insulting & beneath him, So he didn’t want to do it but at the pleading of his servant he did and his skin was restored. 2 Kings 5:1-14

The New Testament on the other hand has a lot of references to healing, mostly done by Jesus, some examples:-

Matthew 8:16

When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.

Matthew 12:15

Aware of this, Jesus withdrew from that place. A large crowd followed him, and he healed all who were ill.

Matthew 14:36

and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed.

Jesus also bestowed the power to heal on his disciples as well.

Matthew 10:1

Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.

The Early Church

The Early church was characterized by miracles and huge growth as many people heard the gospel & were saved.

In Acts 3 Peter & John heal a lame man and the crowds became astonished and gathered around them, thinking they are powerful healers. Peter corrected them in verse 12 that they haven’t healed the man by their own power but that the crowd had witnessed  the power of Jesus Christ; Peter then preached the gospel of salvation to the crowd.

Another example where many were healed is recorded in Acts 5:12-16

The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade.13 No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people. 14 Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. 15 As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by.16 Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by impure spirits.

From this passage, we can see the apostles were known for healing people.  The end result was many started believing in Jesus Christ & the church grew rapidly.

Healing had a purpose for the early church – to show the people of that time that the kingdom of God had come & it was used to support the preaching of the gospel to others. Would it be correct to say that this specific gift of healing has accomplished its purpose & thus ceased with the early church?

God still does heal & restore people, I can personally attest to my mind being healed & restored as I went through my deliverance journey with Pastor Pam Sheppard. But In recent times, we haven’t seen healing situations as recorded in the book of ACTS where huge crowds of sick people legitimately received miraculous healing.

Will the gift of healing as shown by the apostles in the book of ACTS return? – maybe, if it does, it will be to fulfill a specific purpose that God wants.

Nowadays both in the Christian & non-Christian world there are many people seeking supernatural help for healing. The world has methods such as Reiki where people get hands laid on to receive healing. In the church people flock to crusades where the pastor breathes on them, lays hands on them and prophesy healing to the attendees, Christian TV has a lot of programs where people are told to touch the screen & receive healing. Some ministries send prayer cloths, handkerchiefs, oil which have healing power for a nominal fee. One might say they are doing the same as the early church, but are they?

The fruits of some of these healing ministries we have today can help us determine whether God is in it or not. Most ministries are embroiled in some sort of scandal. There are cases where people have come forward stating they were paid to act sick. Innocent people have also suffered as they were deceived into thinking they were healed only to continue suffering from their illness; and in some tragic cases, people have died because they stopped taking medication.

What purpose does healing in current ministries serve?  Is it to further the gospel that teaches we can accept Jesus into our  hearts by repeating the sinners prayer? It seems to be the case which in itself is a huge red flag since that is not the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Believers at this time need to be more vigilant as deception is the order of the day. God definitely has the power to heal but understand the devil can also perform supernatural acts in order to trick people. People have turned to Reiki, yoga and received immediate healing only to be tormented. In the church people have gone to healing ministries and asked Jesus into their hearts when they actually received the fake Jesus who calls himself Jesus Sananda Emmanuel. When they asked Jesus to come into their hearts, they opened themselves up to be demonized.

It can be confusing to know what to believe.  The key is to be undeceived and understand the times we live in.

The enemy is using everything including healing to Lead many into more deception. Therefore we need to learn the wiles & strategies of the enemy to avoid his traps. If you don’t know where to begin started by getting a copy of The Church of the End-Time Zombies.

Don’t Lose Your Crown With Fast Food Religion and Quick Fix Deliverances

22 May

armorThe bible warns that the conditions at the end of the age will “wax worse and worse” men deceiving and being deceived.(2 Timothy 3:13) and many children of God will be deceived, possibly destroyed, because of a lack of discernment, becoming unconscious vessels for the enemy to use in the DAY of his power. (Matthew 24:10). Therefore, it is mandated that every true believer must be prepared to stand alone in order to emerge as an overcomer. To be prepared means that you have been trained in peace time but most often, while you are actually in the battle.

Unfortunately, we are not prepared for what is happening among this generation’s religious people.  Whether in church or absent from Her, Satan is pulling out all  his last stops including spirit rape, voices, intrusive blasphemous thoughts and horrifying visions to let religious folk know, that he is in control of them.  And he is.

How did the devil obtain this kind of power when the bible reports that the Lord Jesus Christ has defeated him? Simply put, the  spiritually undernourished have been eating fast spiritual foods leading to the expectation that quick religious  fixes and fantasies will  pull them  through to victory. What is neither understood or considered is that we who will overcome must try the spirits NOW. We must not believe every spirit.  The spirit that is not of God is Anti-Christ.  So if you are hearing blasphemous thoughts about the Lord Jesus, or if entities or spirits are having sex with you to satisfy their need for spiritual worship, if you are having evil visions that cause shame and guilt , you have been taken over by Satan as  the Accuser of the brethren and the  spirit of the Anti-Christ.

In order to overcome the spirit of the Antichrist who is now quite active in our present world, everything and everyone must be tested, including yourself.  How is this test implemented? First of all, , check to see if you have been  consistently eating junk food. Also, examine where you stand relative to the gospel of Jesus Christ of Nazareth: sin, the cross, the death, burial, resurrection and the return  of the Lord.   Do you understand repentance? Did you experience godly sorrow as led by the Holy Spirit and not by the needs of your own flesh for grief, self-accusation, and self-induced shame?   Did the Holy Spirit call you to the cross or did you just ask Jesus to come into your heart because you were afraid of going to hell? Are you expecting a pre-tribulation rapture and therefore you are not preparing for His coming? Do you believe you are born again yet you still have not been able to control sinful behavior? Do you believe that church attendance and loyalty will save you?

The answers to these questions will reveal whether or not you have been eating fast foods, and relying on quick fixes, fantasizing that you are blessed when in fact, you may be cursed.

Let us face it!.  WE ARE IN A WAR.  A SPIRITUAL WAR! if you are in agreement with theantichrist spirit of the world and the spirit of the Antichrist, you are a weak vessel, not a soldier, one  who is actually food for Satan.  He smells your blood in the water and you are the prey of the mighty. He will tempt you with illusions in the spirit that are not common to man and he does not play fair.  However, those of us called to Calvary have been given weapons for warfare that we are to use and become proficient in their use by experience, developing our faith by trial and sometimes by error.

A part of that warfare is to recognize the spies and overcome them BEFORE the Lord returns. We are in a conflict with the Antichrist and his army NOW.  Consider perhaps the very near future as outlined in Revelation 17. In this chapter, Christ is carrying out terrible things on His enemies who “war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, for He is the Lord of lords and the King of kings, and they also shall overcome who are with Him, called and chosen, and faithful.”

I want to be in this number.  You should want it also.

crown1

We shall judge and rule with Christ, at least those of us who overcome.  Those who have died in Christ already have escaped the  kind of uncommon supernatural trials and  tests Satan will throw our way in these Laodicean, deceitfully lukewarm times of fast food religion and quick fix deliverances.  I suspect that the dead in Christ have their crowns already.  However, what if we are alive when He comes?   It seems that it is OUR crowns that are up for grabs. Will you allow YOUR crown  to  be stolen because you enjoyed too much fast food in the spirit  and you depended solely on quick fixes, incapable of standing against the wiles of the devil.

RESCUE Ministry will train you to be prepared for the Satanic onslaught that is coming your way.  We also work to set you free once you have slipped  into sinking sand. God wants to work in you. RESCUE is a safe haven where He can answer your prayer and prepare you for the future, with solid meat.  Has the enemy interfered in your life?  God is greater than the devil. At RESCUE, we will train you to get a crown and keep it. We will help you to past all tests with flying colors, as you learn to stand in strong faith.

Deliverance From Error: Avoiding Truthiness, FAke News and Alternative Facts

10 Mar

I have noticed that some churchgoers feel absolutely miserable when they become undeceived. Their self worth was bound up in their acts of religion. Self-hatred, shame and guilt are a part of the process as well. Serious remorse and sorrow—the grieving stage—is usually followed by intense anger and desire for revenge against those who deceived them.

I never experienced any of that.

As for me, I was a minister for more than 25 years within a well-known denomination when I got undeceived. I NEVER GOT ANGRY OR BLAMED ANYONE ELSE. I was actually angry BEFORE I got undeceived. That is because most of the time, I was rejected by church folk and other ministers. So once I got undeceived, I realized why people in the institutional church aka the  IC did not like me. And so it was very easy for me  to forgive them and move on. Also, I really never submitted myself to anyone. I took all the blame primarily  on myself. Therefore,  all those whom the enemy used to deceive me did not even get a second thought.

In fact, I was blissfully joyous. First came shock. Then understanding followed by extreme gratefulness.

What I was grateful for is that everything I was wrong on: tongues and other supernatural gifts, tithing, I RARELY PREACHED FROM THE PULPIT. I never insisted that everyone speak in tongues, or tithe. Did I create false conversions? Not many. On a rare occasion,  I declared people born again when they “accepted Christ.” I did not do much on “ask Him to come into your heart” though. While I was ministering at the altar, it just did not come to me to say.

The denomination I was in did not have many people to come forward to accept Christ. The pastors  asked the congregations to come forward to join the denomination and then they put them on a 6 months trial. So there were not many people falsely getting born again.

I REMAIN VERY GRATEFUL THAT MY MARGIN OF ERROR DID NOT REALLY HURT ANYONE.

Actually, I knew from the beginning in 1979 that something was seriously wrong with the church but I  thought it was my responsibility to be an instrument for IC change. Recently I heard that the special church I adored and desired to pastor for so many years is practically dead right now.  A close ministerial friend who was my rival over that church has now left it in failure and disgrace. Did I feel vindicated?  NO.  What  I felt was utter sadness.  You know them by their fruit.

One of the stages you should arrive at is being grateful that God saw fit to undeceived you. If you have had a false conversion, if He has un-deceived you, that means He intends to cause you to be born again and to deliver you. I am particularly in  awe that most of my life, I thought I was special. I WANTED TO BE KNOWN as the best this or that. The truth is that I did not know what it really means to be special really  until God Himself made me special beyond my expectation with the revelations He has given me. No, I had no idea what special really is. If there is a duplicate of me anywhere in the world, I would like to meet him or her.

God has made me so special that I prefer to hide than to make myself known to the world. All I want is for God”s elect to be undeceived.”

What really shocked me was to discover that the 3 dreams I had in 1979 that told me to go to that particular  church were from the devil. That was one of my biggest shocks. It caused me to wonder if God really called me to the ministry while in the church. Certainly, something supernatural DID happen. Was that God or the devil? Was all my work a waste? Did I really cast out demons from people or was it all a sham? Was The Holy Spirit helping me to preach or did my help come from a fallen angel?

Well, I have answers to those questions. One way I got an answer was to listen to messages I preached and taught before I was undeceived. I have not heard them all as there are many, but I have not found a mistake or an untruth yet in the ones I have heard thus far. Actually, I am being blessed and re-taught by my own messages.

For me, my past spiritual life is not a major concern. I put all those years behind me without much effort.

How about you? What has YOUR stages of undeception been like? If you are at the beginning, the middle or even the final stages of being undeceived, you may need some pastoral coaching via telephone sessions.  If so, call 888-818-1117 or fill out the contact form below.  If you prefer to work on your own, I have prepared resources for you that you can review and obtain by clicking here.

Religion Takes Away your Identity

12 Feb

jail

One thing I have really disliked about religion (well, there are many, but I will focus on this one! lol), is that being religious makes a person become something they are not. You all know what I am talking about. There is just this certain way people become when they turn religious…even in the way they speak. The religious practices and rules make us feel like we have to do certain things, and act a certain way to be accepted by God, be righteous, or “get into heaven.” It’s like a switch turns on for them to act a certain way when the subject of God or Jesus comes up. All of a sudden, they know all the righteous things to do and say. Interesting…

I do not miss the long, drawn out, religious prayers, that are nothing but FLUFF, leading people to believe that they have attained a certain righteousness with these deep prayers. I remember going to all-night prayers. I HATED them. Why? Because people would use all these religious terms, trying to sound all holy, instead of just talking to God (or who they thought was God) like they talk to a regular person. The constant, “Father Gods,” or the “Oh, Almighty God,” religious sayings after every sentence drove me CRAZY!!!! I am the type of person who just talks normal when I pray. I don’t see a point in saying all this religious stuff to try and impress God. I’m sure he will hear my prayers if I just talk to him, like a normal human being.

Then there’s the “acts of worship” people put on as they suddenly hear a religious song, or get in an atmosphere of falling into an altered state, thinking they are worshiping God. To me, worship is in EVERYTHING I do for God, it’s my life…not just some religious state I get in when I hear a religious song or something. When I was in the IC, I felt something was a bit odd how a certain song will come on, and people would suddenly CHANGE.

Then, there’s the constant referral to scripture for everything you say, as if quoting Bible verses makes you more spiritual than others, or closer to God. I used to be in discussions where I had to have a scripture to back up everything I was saying.

Let’s not forget the SERMONIZING…the religious, on cue rise and fall of a preacher’s voice, just to get a huge reaction from his/her audience.

While I was in the church, I hated the bondage. I suspected something was just not right with having to follow all these rules, and do certain works to transform myself into become this IMAGE of what a “christian” is supposed to be. I yearned to just be REAL. To be FREE. To be NORMAL. Religion took that away from me, and made me this person who would put on a form of Godliness in any situation related to church, God, Jesus, etc.

Today, I can happily say that I am FREE from all of that. I don’t need to say religious lingo to talk to God. I don’t need to act a different way, just because spiritual topics are being brought up in a conversation. I don’t have to suddenly go into this altered state of worship, to try to feel close to God. I don’t have to talk a certain way, citing Bible verses everywhere I go, trying to appear righteous. I’m just ME…Learning truth, living my truth, and being REAL. No fake religious mess. And you know what? God still accepted ME. Just the way I am. Finally, I do not have to live a life of being fake, engaging in religious works, just to feel that I am close to God. No more religious songs, no more religious facebook groups (of God knows WHO is really saved in there), no more pressure to go to church to “earn” or “maintain” my salvation, no more feeling like I have to sound a certain way in prayer, no more listening to pointless sermons, that have nothing to do with the truth, but rather a point the preacher wants to get across, no more saying “grace” before meals, as if something is wrong if I DON’T say grace. I know that GOD IS NOT IN ANY OF THAT. RELIGION IS MAN’S INVENTION OF WHAT THEY CONSIDER TO BE THE PATH TO GOD, INSPIRED BY THE DEVIL. IT IS COUNTERFEIT. IT IS NOT REAL. IT IS A FORM OF GODLINESS THAT DENIES THE POWER OF JESUS CHRIST. I NO LONGER STRUGGLE WITH MY IDENTITY BECAUSE OF RELIGION. I KNOW WHO I AM, AND AM HAPPY I HAVE THE FREEDOM IN CHRIST TO BE ME, AND NOT SOMETHING RELIGION HAS CREATED ME TO BE.

Living by the Spirit vs. the Flesh

1 Jan

Competition

In today’s society, what I see as the age of Laodicea, what people consider “Christian” is actually CARNALITY that exists in RELIGION. It is OF THE FLESH. It appeals to the DESIRES OF THE FLESH. The majority of the organized church consists of CARNAL people who consider themselves Christian and includes carnal practices that people engage in that they THINK are about God. Everything they do and practice is with a carnal mind. Everything they do in church is about THEM and the frivolous things of this world. Their minds consist of things that encourage them to be consumed by attaining everything on this earth. Every scripture in the Bible is somehow supposed to be for THEM. They are self-absorbed, thinking that somehow, in their self-absorption, they are serving God. Even the praise and worship is about SELF. They attempt to worship God in order to get some type of spiritual high…as if God is some kind of drug. They believe that every fleshly desire they have is supposed to be granted by God, as if God is a magical genie, just sitting around waiting to grant wishes. They think that, if they just do this or that religious practice enough, and pray for it enough, then God will just wave his magic wand and giving them what they want, hence misinterpreting  Psalm 37:4, “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart,” twisting it to mean that all they have to do is pretend to delight in the Lord by engaging in religious practices, and then POOF! God is going to go ahead and magically give them everything their hearts desire, when in actuality, in Psalm 37:4, the meaning of the scripture is quite the contrary. It actually means that when a person is delighting him/herself in the Lord, HIS desires will become THEIR desires…it is about the Lord changing a person, making him/her a new creation, desiring what the Lord would desire so that he/she can be more like HIM. But most people in the organized church don’t get this because they are CARNAL “Christians.”

Romans 8:7 explains this succinctly, yet quite well. “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.”

The CARNAL MIND IS AT ENMITY WITH GOD. What does enmity mean? It means “the state or feeling of being actively opposed or hostile to someone or something.”  So what does this tell you about church and religion?

As for me, everything I did and thought about used to be carnal…yet I considered myself a Christian. Truth is, I didn’t know the FIRST THING about living a life dedicated to the Lord. The Lord showed me that I was NOT born again. I was so carnal that my motivation for being saved was because I wanted to go to heaven. Folks, if you think like this, THAT IS CARNAL. Salvation is about the LORD. Godly sorrow is just that…GODLY SORROW. Sorrow for the Lord. Anybody who simply said a sinner’s prayer, responded to an alter call, joined a church, or chased after God out of fear of going to hell is led by CARNAL DESIRES. THOSE THINGS DO NOT SAVE YOU.  I only used him when I wanted him. I used to want to be saved because it benefited ME…nevermind the power of the cross, and the incredible sacrifice Jesus Christ of Nazareth made…nevermind the heartless crucifixtion he had to endure…the SPOTLESS LAMB…because I, in my nature am so wicked and evil that I could not save myself. The Lord had to SHOW me the wickedness of who I am…not just what I did. It was then that I realized that salvation is  not about focusing on what we did and how miserable our lives are (like the churches falsely teach), but rather the wickedness of WHO WE ARE…THAT WE ARE SO CARNAL MINDED THAT EVERYTHING WE DO IS CENTERED AROUND US, and that it is a PRVILEGE to be called to salvation…NOT, “Oh, my life is so miserable, I don’t want to go to hell, so I am just going to do some fleshly thing to choose God.” HOW DISRESPECTFUL IS THAT???!!! When the Lord CALLED me to salvation, I did NOT choose. The Holy Spirit blew on me and showed me the POWER of the cross and resurrection. HE CHANGED ME. I DID NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING…NO ALTER CALLS, NO SINNERS PRAYER, NO SPEAKINGIN TONGUES, NO “DECISION-MAKING..” HE SIMPLY SAVED ME. Hearing the true Gospel of Jesus Christ was all it took. The TRUE Gospel that Jesus Christ of Nazareth was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, he is GOD, who came to earth in the form of Jesus Christ, he lived a sinless human life, shed his blood and died for the WICKEDNESS of humanity, and CAME BACK TO LIFE IN THE SAME BODY HE DIED IN, AND IS NOW ALIVE TODAY, IN HEAVEN, SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER. THAT WAS IT. No religious mumbo jumbo. Just the Gospel. When I heard that, the Holy Spirit did the rest and re-birthed my spirit. I can CONFIDENTLY stand here today and say that I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Lord saved me!!!! And IT WAS NOT IN SOME FLESHLY, RELIGIOUS CHURCH!!!! Now that I AM truly born again, any personal desires for me are no more. I have no desires of my own, but to serve the Lord, and live my life on this earth, while I’m here…nothing extra. I don’t expect anything, nor do I feel that I deserve anything. I live in peace daily, and am not bogged down by the weight of this world singing CARNAL gospel songs that do NOTHING for my spirit, and do NOTHING to uplift the Lord, but rather put the focus on self and fleshly desires. Yes, there are a few songs that actually DO focus on the Lord and on the Gospel, but most of those songs are about the FLESH. THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS THE BONDAGE OF RELIGION. And I am happy to be free of religion. Oh, I have MUCH MORE TO WRITE ABOUT THIS!  This is just the tip of the iceberg. You aint see NOTHIN YET!

A friend of mine couldn’t have said it better: “Religion teaches people to seek personal destinies and it is another false perception of God. People think that God waves a wand of fulfilling fleshly desires and so they do not understand that the true focus is not our own.”

So how about YOU? Do you have your OWN destiny? Do you focus on carnal desires, yet profess to be a Christian? If so, are you willing to give up your desires in order to TRULY understand what it means to live a life revolved around the Lord?

This post is not for the haughty, religious folks whose only effort is to try to prove to me that they are “saved,” or to try to debunk what I am saying, as a means to engage in meaningless, religious arguments.

NO. This post is for those whom the Lord is calling OUT of the organized church system, and who are humble enough to consider that something may be wrong with the religion that they thought was their avenue to God. It is for those who are courageous enough to DARE to DETOX themselves from everything religion has taught them, in an effort to find the TRUE God, and NOT some sorry religious copy.
