Hope in the Fire

One day, all the disagreements, offenses, misunderstandings, and unforgiveness we experienced in our life with one another will cease. We, eventually, will all meet our God who will reveal His judgement for us and none of the trivial plans of man will matter as our lives are weighed against His divine plan. All that will have mattered is if we listened and obeyed His commands of loving Him and loving His other children. Mark 12:30-31

You see, we are God’s creations, not the other way around. He is Holy and endures forever while we are evil and are only here for a short while. Psalm 144:4 We are living in mortal vessels and often we are unaware that we are truly and wholly dependent on Him! John 15:5

“For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”

2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:1‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Even so, God created our spirits to be eternal. We are to live even after our fleshly bodies are dust. Our lives will be judged to see in which path or eternal place we will live. It is either the Kingdom of Heaven with Him, or the darkest of darkness. Matthew 8:12

In these ways, life on earth is like a fiery furnace. A place to tested and reviewed, while He sorts us out and refines us (Jeremiah 9:7) to the purest form of spirit He created us to be. Where He determines if we are His or not. Matthew 25:31-46 We are clay and He is the potter, we are being sifted like wheat under His direction and rule, and we are being tested and tempted, undergoing trials and tribulations (1 Peter 1:6-7) throughout our life to see if we are are truly His.

So let us not wax and wane by over-thinking the gospel. It is to be so simple that a child understands it and unless we become like them, trusting the Lord in all His truths, we will not enter the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:3).

As fallen man, we love complexity. Simple is silly to most and often dismissed as foolish. We tend to overcomplicate the most mundane details of life to the point we don’t see the truth of how simple it is or should be. So let’s always renew our minds to His truths (Romans 12:2). Let us refresh ourselves in His spirit and presence. Let us repent from our worldly ways and get back to the basics of His ways and His will for us.

 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:2

One day, this will be indeed be over. Each of us have a divine appointment with the Lord, set by Him. None of us will know the hour or the day it will happen, but when it does happen, trust that you will indeed know the truth to all that is. There will be no way to lie or deceive Him with falsity, we won’t be able to lie in the presence of the Almighty, there will only be truth. We will have our whole life unfolded before us as in a book and each of us will indeed bow to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ with the Honor our King rightfully deserves.

It’s better to start bowing now, to start listening now, and to begin learning to accept the Holy Fire of God’s refinement for our lives, now. If we are to be Holy as He is Holy, then why wait? If this is indeed all done for love, a true love story, then let’s love now. Let’s yield to each other, forgive one another, pray for one another, and honor and serve one another. Let’s learn to treat others with humility, gentleness, kindness, and long-suffering. Knowing that this is the way of the Kingdom of Heaven and Jesus Christ is the door in which we enter.

Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who have come before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep have not listened to them. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.[a] They will come in and go out, and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

John 10:7-10

Correction is Coming

We must always remember, that none of us are perfect. We all sinned (Romans 6:23). We all can have logs or splinters in our eyes that block us from seeing clearly what is in our brother’s eye (Matt. 7:3-5), but we must be honest and faith-filled with sharing the words of knowledge we receive with others about the correction needed. This, so we may sharpen each other and strengthen one another against the tactics and plans of the enemy. This is the truth of correction each of us in the body of Christ must desire in our hearts to have and learn to accept so we may be found ready for the day of salvation that is ahead.

There is correction coming to the church of Christ and to the world. This is not a threat, nor is it a curse. It is a blessing! For when we, God’s people, receive correction first, we receive truth, either by the word or by the Spirit of our Lord that counters mistruth. These truths set straight our path from an otherwise crooked and perverse one. It allows us to receive the truth of Christ with clearer vision, hearing ears, and a sounder mind. It enables us to help others operate in the world as God intended. It is then our responsibility to bring the same correcting truth to the world that so desperately needs truth in these important days to please or Lord.

There are errors we perceive as truth and correction must first start in the church. In these modern times, our young are being tossed to and fro by false beliefs, perverse values by destructive and demoralizing movies, TV shows, phone apps, and music from the most degenerative entertainers. Our children are being deceived at a greater number than ever before because the instant and easy access to the internet, which holds uncountable perverse information and ideas. Our children’s legal rights are quickly being stripped away for the sake of safety and God’s people are being put back into slavery in ever-renewing attempt by Satan to separate us from God.

my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.

Hosea 4:6

This is not a new plan against humanity, it is indeed quite old. It originated in the garden of eden when the old serpent spoke to make us question God’s truths. He cast doubt into man and seduced us into believing his lies over God’s good truth. Evil and sin has been in the world since and has affected generation after generation. We must never forget where we came from, why we are here, and why we need to receive correction; to save our souls! Our Bible is our guidebook. It holds information of correction and God’s truth that we must hold the highest importance in our lives. It is the word of God and it is considered to be higher than the name(s) of God!

I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your name!

Psalm 138:2

What needs correction?

While, I could try and approach all the mis-guided beliefs and values we have incorporated in the church and deconstruct them against the word of God, but there are so many pioneers who have already done so. There are so many men and women of God who have woven a tapestry of good documented works to reveal the schemes and plans of our enemy. The Bible itself revelates many of the prince of the power of the air’s tactics against man. We must learn what these threats are by studying the scriptures, self-examination and deploying the proven strategies learned by saints who came before us. We must review the stories of biblical lives whose words God himself breathed into our Bible, along with the mentors and mighty men of God who lead us by example of laying down their lives so we may live and not die (Romans 6:23).

It is not difficult to see the ways many in the Church of Christ have compromised doctrine with the ways of the world. We have replaced God’s truths with man’s theology and opinions. Modern man may believe (erroneously) that science and philosophy explains everything, but if you speak to any professional or dedicated scientist or studied philosophist, they will reveal to you that their life-long studies only present more questions than answers. The deepest knowledge of our world and our lives, our Lord keeps deeply hidden in secrets. He then reveals those secrets to those He chooses.

The rebellious have given themselves over to occult learning and studies to try to learn more about the unseen, the unexplainable, and the supernatural, only to find themselves completely yielded to doctrines of demons. This is not the way to eternal life! Jesus Christ is the door, the path, the way, and the light to the truth. Yet, our society looks upon God and His truths as foolishness with their acquired knowledge and wisdom makes them believe they are wise, but only in their own minds.

So where do we start with correction? We start in the word of God, our Bible. Each of us must return to study of the word so we may understand God’s purpose for our lives and how to live, how to love, how to obey, and how to bring heaven to earth. We must also learn to give and take correction with direct relationship with God.

With the word of God, we examine ourselves and yield to Jesus when we find something that isn’t lining up with His word. We must also listen to God’s apostles, prophets, teachers, and pastors, seeking truth while listening with the intent of changing and repentance and choosing not to be offended. Our main question to them should be: “how can I follow Christ better?”.

While I have heard some in the church say “people know their sin and shouldn’t be told of what it is”, which is a dangerous precedent and I don’t completely agree with this practice. There are many who simply do not know what it is keeping them from the closest relationship with Christ they can have. Sometimes it’s unrepentant sin, but sometimes it’s a misunderstanding in their mind about what is true that keep hindering evil spirits active in their lives. Perhaps it is hindering belief or idea they may have about a past event, trauma, abuse, or unresolved hurt that is unresolved, unforgiven, and unhealed. How will people know what is against them if they are not made aware of their belief in a lie when they are unable to hear the voice of God for themselves? This is where an accurate word of knowledge from God can help with correction. Prophets and pastors or prophetic people who clearly hear from God (via the Holy Spirit), can be the catalyst in this interaction for those who cannot hear as clearly as they.

We must always remember, that none of us are perfect. We all sinned (Romans 6:23). We all might have logs or splinters in our eyes that block us from seeing clearly what is in our brother’s eye (Matt. 7:3-5), but we must be honest and faith-filled with sharing the words of knowledge we receive with others about the correction needed. This, so we may sharpen each other and strengthen one another against the tactics and plans of the enemy. This is the truth of correction each of us in the body of Christ must desire in our hearts to have and learn to accept so we may be found ready for the day of salvation that is ahead.

and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

Mark 1:15

When the body of Christ can receive, accept, and repent with correction, we will be stronger as a church. We can then go in all the world and help those who cannot help themselves. If we choose not to correct ourselves in the church first, then we lose all credibility with the world, because we are not listening to God either. We must choose to appreciate correction, to embrace God’s truths, and to trust the Lord want us to share His truths to the world. Above all, we must correct each other with mercy, grace, and love and in full submission to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank you for your attention to this important topic. May God’s truth always bring you lasting peace, a deeper hope and faith in Christ Jesus, and an insatiable, ever-increasing desire to have more of God’s Spirit and Presence in your life. You are loved! ❤️

“My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord,

    nor be weary when reproved by him.

For the Lord disciplines the one he loves,

    and chastises every son whom he receives.”

Hebrews 12:6

Stay In The Son

As I woke this morning, I heard the words spoken to me: “get plenty of sun today”.

Fall and Winter are coming! The days will be darker as the planet rotates and our time in the sun gets shorter. Even our fall schedules won’t have flexibility to stay in daylight as we were allowed to in the summer months. Our bodies need Vitamin D, which is derived from the sun. Vitamin D is important to our bodies and health, especially for our immune systems.

Walking in the sun with my son.

With the fall season, we will also have darker days and therefore, even our minds will see less physical light. Because of this, it is also important to stay in the son (of God), who is Jesus Christ. The fall season is also considered to be a season of death. Much of the world’s life systems, bugs, trees and plants die or go dormant. We tend to see this death and lose hope or at least recognize that even our lives are temporary. As such, we must always remember our Lord and praise Him and the son, who is Jesus Christ. Our hope is in Jesus for an everlasting life. This will bring us light even in the darkest of days and seasons. So, stay in the son of God, Jesus Christ. Be hidden in Him, who saves and trust in Him to keep you at peace and full of light and hope.

For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

Colossians 3:3

This message also means we must continue staying in the body of Christ. We are called to meet together often (Hebrews 10:25) to celebrate our Lord, our callings for the Lord and, and to sharpen each other in Christ (Proverbs 27:17). Let us also pray for each other continuously and pray without ceasing for His guidance, mercy, grace, and gifts.

not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:25

We serve a triune God! Three in one, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. So when I hear a word, I also look for the other meanings, usually at least three. The third revelation from this morning’s word is to stay in the Son, and since Jesus is also the Word of God (John 1:14), we must also keep our minds on His word in our bible and continuously renew our mind in Christ and His teachings. This means bible study is required. New meaning and revelations will be added to our lives as we stay and study the word of God throughout the year. This is just a reminder to do so, as many have fallen away from meeting together or have neglected reading or staying in His word. The Lord is our strength and our comforter. He will see us through the next seasons. He is with us!

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14
Open Heavens

We have open heavens! This may result in the enemy having abilities to attack more powerfully in the upcoming months. So, let’s be sure to keep our mouths full of praise, our minds stayed on Him, and let His word from this message bring us a gentle reminder to stay in His word, focus on His Son, get some sun (outdoors), dwell on His Kingdom, and behold His glory!

Blessings to you this day and may the Lord keep you in perfect peace for the days ahead. Have joy in all things, for the Lord is good!

You are loved! ❤️

Your Stolen Identity

When people lose their identity because of a mask, they begin to adopt new ones. Some choose movements like BLM, or All Lives Matter. Some choose the political left or the political right. Some will choose pride while others choose to live as they were created.
Many will choose whatever is loved by the world and fall victim to it. 1 John 2:15

Which identity have you put on lately?

We are not to be like the world, we are to be new creations in Christ. 2 Cor. 5:17

Our identity should be in Christ. 2 Cor. 5:17
We are to be hidden with Christ. Col. 3:3

For to be saved, we must have died with Christ, so we can be risen with Christ. Col. 2:20
So that it is no longer we that live, but He that lives in us. Gal. 2:20

Let this be an encouragement to you!

Rest assured, this world, your body, your enemies, and the like will all fall away. All of it will no longer matter. The things we covet in this world will rot and rust and will all be in a landfill and the people who have harmed us will all face judgement, as we will also. We will be renewed and restored and all of our enemies will be gone. No more hunger, no more thirst, no more sickness, and no more pain. No more losing loved ones, no more anger, depression, worry or shame.

Now is the time!

“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

Acts 2:38-39

So can you believe? Do you already?

All we have to do is believe in Jesus Christ, the one who saves to have freedom now, in knowing we will have an eternal life with Him. We can have peace and joy now knowing that this is not our final resting place.

Your identity cannot be stolen when it is with Christ. You are protected, saved, and adored. This is not the end.

It is only the beginning.

You are loved! ❤️

“And that’s just the beginning: After that – “I will pour out my Spirit on every kind of people: Your sons will prophesy, also your daughters. Your old men will dream, your young men will see visions. 29 I’ll even pour out my Spirit on the servants, men and women both. 30 I’ll set wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below: Blood and fire and billowing smoke, 31 the sun turning black and the moon blood-red, Before the Judgment Day of God, the Day tremendous and awesome. 32 Whoever calls, ‘Help, God!’ gets help. On Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be a great rescue – just as God said. Included in the survivors are those that God calls.


Paranormal TV & The Rise Of The Demonic

In 2004, the reality TV entertainment industry had a whole new quest to release an endless supply of ghost-related and paranormal television shows into the world. I should know because that was when my addiction to paranormal began. I was a full-blown addict to all things ghostly and paranormal and I didn’t know why until God showed me.

Weekly Entertainment

Ghost Hunters on A&E Network (2020)

The first show that had me hooked was a weekly show called Ghost Hunters on the now-defunct SyFy channel. Every year, there were similar new shows released to tickle the fancy of the paranormal reality TV viewers with all things ghostly and scary. There was Ghost Adventures, release in 2007, Paranormal State, also released in 2007, Most HauntedA HauntingCelebrity Paranormal ProjectExtreme Ghost Stories, and the list went on and on for the last 14 years. These shows had been released before but not in the reality TV way it was now being portrayed. I just had not realized how popular the older shows were since I had only begun to watch it in 2004 in the new, more addictive, and attention-getting format. I have viewed and purchased many seasons of these shows and found myself watching and rewatching the episodes. God, please bless my family for having endured this! I was fascinated by the paranormal and everything that it entailed and I was not alone.

It was in 2018 that I finally had a moment where I realized that I had looked at these shows all wrong. These 43-minute episodes fed my appetite for fear, only it wasn’t my appetite, but a demon of fear I had acquired. Demons of fear love these shows and have us coming back to them over and over, wasting our time, stealing our peace and joy, taking our blessings and we end up not producing anything fruitful without lives as a result of it. I had nothing to show for all the years of my TV viewing, except for spooky tales of various people giving testimonies of their experiences with, what I now know are, demons.

Ghosts and the Demonic

Ghost shows have it all wrong, well, that is all of them except one, which is Ghost Adventures. This show has been on the air for over 13 years. At one point, I had purchased every episode and season of the show and spin-off show (Aftershocks) since its inception into the paranormal franchise of television entertainment. Every year, I watched the people on these shows go from chasing spirits, or ghosts, in old western towns, to globetrotting across the world to various and notoriously haunted, or at least quite spooky, locations and every place in between. I was thoroughly addicted to these shows, that is until I was baptized in the Holy Spirit. 

These shows have us all fooled. There are no ghosts of people hanging around old decrepit and abandoned places. These aren’t spirits of people at all, they are demons.

Ghost Adventures on A&E Network. (2020)

These shows have us all fooled. There are no ghosts of people hanging around old decrepit and abandoned places. These aren’t spirits of people at all, they are demons. And if you watch Zak Bagans and his crew does their research for the past 10 years, they had come to know this to be true as well. They had to increase their show’s viewership by keeping the show titillating enough that their audience was supernaturally glued to the TV by ramping up the fear factor associated with their genre of television programming. Demonology is where they put all their focus for the maximum amount of profit, and rightly so, these shows made a lot of money and fear.

Ghost Adventures Season 17, Episode 1, Pasadena Ritual House. Example of satanic programming.


How do demons mess with us? Demons have been around for a long time. While I will not get into the biblical theology or other alternative theories that show where demons likely came from, we will say they have have been around humans long enough to know a great deal about us. They have these supernatural powers because they were created supernaturally, by God. Some say they are all fallen angels, while others say they are created by Satan himself using a spiritual children theology that I will not get into. Needless to say, they are here and they are just as bad and evil as we have come to know them. They hate us!

And why shouldn’t they? We were created in the image of God. We are alive and we have been given bodies. They have no bodies, they are personas without bodies, meaning, they have personalities, thoughts, feelings, etc. but they do not have a body. They have to use a host to experience life. So they live in us. This is what a ghost or an apparition is. A once connected to a human spirit that still retains the likeness and image of the host that had passed away. Since they no longer have bodies, they can appear as the people who once lived or breathed, because they were the deceased person’s familiar spirits.

Fear Not!

Bacteria sample

This is not to scare you, but if I told you that you have a staphylococcus epidermidis bacteria on your forehead, would you be alarmed? You shouldn’t as this bacteria is quite common on normal human skin and is known as our healthy skin flora. Well, much to the same effect, this is how demons can infect humans, except there is nothing good in demons, they are thieves trying to steal, kill, and destroy. Demons are real and they can be dangerous, but still, don’t be scared. We weren’t made with a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind as described in 2 Timothy 1:7God protects us.

Addiction to Scary Things

Why did I like these shows? Well, I did learn a lot from them and how they operate in people’s lives much more than many suspect, and it was a precursor to my life now in Christ, especially with the discerning of spirits gift I received in 2018. These evil spirits are in the world and they are constantly watching, planning, and harming people to keep them from their God-given blessings. They also cause horrible things to people in life to cause damage to God’s kingdom and His relationship with them when people are kept from the true purpose that God created them for. We must not put anything above God.

It’s so negative, why do you focus on them? Well, I don’t focus on demons all the time, but I do know they exist. I’m learning more and more each day as to how they manifest, how they operate, often in demon gangs, and most importantly, how to permanently cast them out. I hate evil spirits. They have caused so much loss in my life, and now that I know they exist, I am on a mission to help people identify, understand, and get rid of them from their lives through education. Besides, we are commanded to cast them out.

Many ministers get to the topic of demons and they think that all there is to know is about them is to cast them out and they should just stay out. While I agree 100% that this is what should happen, it is my experience that shows me that they do not stay out, especially when the host or person who had them make an accidental agreement with them. Jesus spoke of this in Matthew 12:43. For example, in the case of addiction with porn, a person makes an agreement that they are accepting and deriving evil pleasure from the activity of watching people, they do not know, having sex on a computer or TV screen. The person watching, and likely doing more than that, may or may not be married, which switches the sin from fornication to adultery. Both are bad, yes, as we (believers in Christ) are not to be engaged with anything that makes the body of Christ impure. So we do need to feed the sheep by educating others to the truth of Satan’s kingdoms and the strong grip he has on us because of the entertainment industry and shows them how to keep evil out of their lives. Yes, it is self-control and discipline, and it is required of us to reject the world to live for God’s kingdom, not Satans.

The Battle is Real

I had to reject paranormal TV for several reasons. One, it was too addictive for me, and two, it is demonic, meaning it is used to worship Satan and his kingdoms, not Gods. I learned that I had demons of fear of evil things, which gave me a fascination with evil things and kept me in bondage to these shows. I had to repent for this, so I deleted all the TV shows from my library and DVD collections, and I haven’t watched an episode since 2018! 

These shows can be gateways into the demonic, especially if you start ghost hunting and participating in demonic teachings by having lust for more of it and becoming involved or infatuated with the paranormal. I have seen enough of these shows, and now that I know how demons are attention thieves and distractors, I am on a mission to tell others. The main purpose of demons is to steal, kill, and destroy. If this is true, what do they steal? Peace, blessings, hope, love, kindness, patience, and other fruits of the spiritWhat do they kill? They murder our character, our God-given drives, our ability to move to help others, and do God’s will and they kill our blessings. What do they destroy? Anything they can. If they manage to destroy God’ s children, it’s for the glory of their father in hell, Satan. 

Paranormal State

Paranormal State (2010)

One example of a show gone wrong is that of Paranormal State. I had enjoyed this show because of its host, Ryan Buell. Ryan seemed authentic, kind, and serious about helping those afflicted by paranormal while on the screen with the “clients” who had suffered from attacks. The show ran until 2010 when Ryan stepped back and canceled the show unexpectedly. What the audience didn’t see was how much the show affected the personal life of Ryan Buell. I started following Ryan on social media in 2014 when I learned he was teaching a demonology class. I thought, “what the heck, why not” and I signed up for the $100 class.

Ryan Buell Mugshot (2017)

The class started, but after one or two classes, Ryan made excuse after excuse to not complete the remaining six-week course. He would sometimes show up in a meeting forum and then would drop out again. He’d kick off a class and the lightning from a storm would flash outside and an evil smile crossed face as the feed went dark and later would give an excuse that the storm had taken down his internet. He then continued using vague excuses that dragged on for months. I never did receive a refund for the class and I was okay with it. I forgave him. You see, Ryan gave me a front-row seat to what a demonic attack looks like, but this was before I was able to understand it. This attack made Ryan fail to follow through with plans. It caused him to self-destruct and it destroyed his reputation, his business, and his ability to overcome his challenges. Ryan tried resurrecting the class in 2017 to save face for the fraudulent class and later I learned that Ryan was suffering from a severe drug addiction that he finally received treatment for the same year. He is clean now and trying to resurrect his past glory in the field and the show, but is meeting limited success because of burned bridges. This is a perfect example of how a seemingly normal young paranormal investigator can become demonized and not know how to defeat a dangerous, smoke-like enemy, because of spiritual blindness during involvement with the paranormal.

The TV is a gateway or portal. It allows demons to traverse technology into your home to see if they can live with you in your home, which is your vessel or body, mind, and soul.

Paranormal TV shows have become more demonic as time advances. At the time I stopped watching Ghost Adventures, the programming was nearly 100% focus on devils, satanism, and evil people. They performed satanic rituals on the shows with seances, ouija boards, satanic and evil artifacts from serial killers, and the like. Demons can walk right into your home from an evil show, especially one where they perform rituals, chants, and spells. I only know this, because when I was baptized in the Holy Spirit and subsequently baptized by a crown of thorns with the gift of discerning of spirits, I could physically see, hear, and feel spirits entering through certain modalities. The TV is a gateway or portal. It allows demons to traverse technology into your home to see if they can live with you in your home, which is your vessel or body, mind, and soul.


Time to shut it off and repent! If you are a Christian or are have concerns about addiction with paranormal research shows, ask yourself, “why do I like this so much?” When you answer honestly, you realize it’s the pleasure you receive from the jump scares, the fearful visuals and sounds they create, and the possibility that it just may happen to you. If you have any fear at all with these shows, you are a potential target for more spirits to affect your life in ways that you will only realize when it’s too late. They can affect you deeply. 

Three main spirits work with these types of shows, seducing spiritslying spirits, and the spirit of fear. Together, they will keep you in bondage to sin, not just for the TV show, but in any area of your life that you have a weakness. Other spirits that have attacked people from these types of shows are witchcraft and sorcery, divination spirits, and spirits of necromancy which are summoned during seances that paranormal shows have often done live during holiday specials.

These shows can be very dangerous, they are door openers to the demonic and they steal your time away from the Lord if you are not with a mouthful of praise and worship at all times. If you get to a point where you can no longer stop yourself from watching, you can fall into the sin of idolatry, which has serious consequences in the spirit realm. Also, if you are around anyone who chooses to continue watching these shows, pray before, pray after and praise the Lord all the way through and declare that He has defeated the enemy for them.

If you have also had the desire to learn more about ghosts or have been ghost hunting yourself, please get into your prayer closet and repent, and pray to the Lord to remove any influence of the demonic spirits from you and your family. Have faith that He will and He will!

Blessings to your understandings of this post, I hope it will educate and arm you in your spiritual warfare against our unseen enemy, the devil. God bless!

In Christ,

1 Peter 5:8 states, “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

And much like a real lion, his favorite tactic is to divide God’s people by separating us from our flock (church), running us down with his “pride” of demons and striking us when we are tired and weak.

We cannot allow ourselves to be divided. When we are, we are his game. He seeks to destroy us with his methods. We must resist his wiles and temptations to be divided, where he tempts us to hate, reject and to war against each other. To expose this tactic is to prevent his deadly predator tactics, which always lead to a kill.

We must stop the rioting and protests, the destruction and unrest, the name calling, the mask shaming and social distancing. If we don’t, we will be devoured by our enemy.

God put us together in His church for protection, much like a pasture. This is why the churches are still on lockdown right now, to keep us out of our pews, where we should flock together and learn from one another, heal each other and feed each other the word of God.

It’s Satan’s very old game and he has found some new tricks, of which, men have become seduced by them, but we must realize his tactics are repeating and are becoming desperate in this late hour.

We must stop the rioting and protests, the destruction and unrest, the name calling, the mask shaming and social distancing. If we don’t, we will be devoured by our enemy, Satan.

In this hour, love your neighbor by rejecting division and submit to God’s will, not your own. Reject the world and embrace His kingdom mindset. The spirit of Christ is in us and we are His body. Keep yourself holy as He is holy.

Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is returning soon! ❤️

Exposed: The Devil’s Bag of Tricks.

You need a teacher! I can teach you the ways of the force!

Kylo Ren, Star Wars Sith Lord

Satan has his favorite subjects. He has his favorite students too. He has his false prophets and teachers lined up in the world to teach you lessons from his doctrine of demons, philosophy, music, psychology, and his media. He is called the prince of the power of the air and he has control of the airwaves and media in our world. He has networks of movies, TV shows, books and pornography to educate you with his creations and how he wants everyone to see the world. He invites you openly to participate in his worldly ways and learn secret initiations to hone your (his) crafts. All you have to do to agree is say yes, because no signature is needed. So many people do, including Christians.

Whether it is witchcraft through: yoga, tantra, zumba (dance worship), black magic, voodoo, Santeria, eastern mysticism, freemasonry, palmistry, hypnosis, tarot cards, fortune telling (sooth saying), psychology, Neural Linguistic Programming (NLP), horoscopes, Wicca, paganism, pantheism, humanism, animism, and many other ‘isms’. These must also include newer technology and natural based fantasy role playing games and the like, because it’s all his works, it is all created for men to bow down and worship him and it is all stolen worship from God.

Satan is a thief and a liar. He will yield his powers and his kingdoms to anyone who worships him, for a time, but it comes at the everlasting price of a soul and sometimes many, as you will be required to recruit and procure more and more people to participate in your new found skill and craft. His will is to have you become his evangelist to win over (condemn) souls of men and women until you find a way out of the mess, by receiving the gift of freedom from Jesus Christ. Some never get out and lose their souls.

Numb and Dumb

Satan only has to numb you and dumb you down to the truth enough so you are blinded to the dangers of participating in these works until you begin to idolize and worship yourself (as he does), which is why he fell in the first place. He tricks many into believing that this world and its machinations are all made up by man to control man. He has you question what the bible says until you become so confused that you no longer comprehend what God intended for you to understand, your purpose in life. Atheism, agnosticism and like philosophies are his domain and they trick people into thinking that there is no God and there is no devil. This, by the way, is humanism. That we are all alone and it’s all just a weird non-created thing instead a divine plan. Satan is quite clever at deceiving people into thinking he does not exist. He has been doing it since the beginning and he has been disguising himself in many ways, including masquerading as an angel of light to trick people who believe in God into following after many cults and false religions.

Any false religion ultimately is a deception of Satan, to try and keep people from the only way to Heaven, which is through faith in Jesus Christ.

One Bag, Many Tricks

There are so many tricks, so many deceiving spirits, so many seducing spirits at his disposal to make you think you are doing something harmless, when you are not. Some are indoctrinated through Ouija boards (necromancy). Some are tricked with fortune telling (sooth sayers) and divination via tarot cards or other card based activity, horoscopes, palmistry and the like. These seem like harmless activities to pass the time, but in the spiritual realm, you are making an agreement with devils to give you secrets, which is really information you likely already know, and thereby allowing evil spirits to remain in your life. Even in the case of a ouija board where you are to use the planchette to say goodbye to “close the portal” to spirits. In effect, when you use the board and believe in it, you have already opened the door to communicate to allow demons to continue supernaturally operating in your life, by default.

But what can start off as just harmless interest or just as fun can often lead to serious negative experiences for people.

Dr Richard Wiseman, University of Hertfordshire paranormal and occult research unit

Unless you read the bible and learn from some of the men and women that are currently doing God’s work in the world, and there are many, you can easily get lost into thinking that anything goes. I know, because at one point in my life, I too was tricked into following after these tricks. I thought that hypnosis, NLP and psychology, including dark psychology and subliminal studies, would be a harmless pursuit, but I was wrong. They are actually based on doctrines of demons. Only demons can carry out missions when you are engaged in these kinds of activities. They seduce you to make you feel you have power, like you have super skills and can control your life or the life of others through techniques. Most assuredly, you do not. You are actually using demonic forces at work in each person to manipulate behaviors. It is a form and use of intimidation, manipulation, and domination of your environment or the will of another, which is the essence of witchcraft.

It (psychology) is a form and use of intimidation, manipulation, and domination of your environment or the will of another, which is the essence of witchcraft.

Renounce Satan

When you work with divination spirits or spirits of any kind, you are in the devil’s grip. I had to renounce my activities with these forms of witchcraft. I had repent and pray for deliverance from familiar spirits that made these activities seem useful to me when they were, in reality, creating spiritual destructions in my life. I had to be forgiven and receive deliverance, of which Jesus Christ did with a baptism in the Holy Spirit and a renewal unlike I had ever felt in my life in the fall of 2018. God is good and He is faithful!

Are there any activities described or like the ones listed that can be used safely and still worship God, like yoga? No. In truth, you can be a witch or bride of Christ, but you cannot be both. The devil is like a lion that goes about seeking those to devour, and any sheep playing with his snares become a target of prey for him. God is also specific in His first law of having no other gods before Him and His second law, to not create an idol. He states emphatically throughout the bible that He is a jealous God and demands that we worship Him only. Why? Because He created us and we are to be bride of Christ! Would you want your future spouse sleeping around before you married them? No? Exactly! Remember, everything you see in this world was made possible because of Him. Nothing good you wish to see in this world is possible without Him.

Burn the Books

You can be a witch or a bride of Christ, but you cannot be both.

In Acts 19:19, all the people who came to Jesus burned their books and magic possessions. They turned to God and repented from the magical arts. While many would disagree, we are to do the same. There are many false teachers in the world who proclaim heresies as doctrine and who tell us that all things are made good because of Jesus. There are ministers of God who love magical things and have collections of witchcraft items, tokens, books, charms, and items that are not of God. Yes, even the Harry Potter books are to be listed as things a Holy Spirit-filled Christian should not possess, as it gives license, a legal right, for the devil to work in your household. And since many people cannot see or know that the spirits are with them, because their senses are dulled, they do not know how many of their blessings are stolen by the enemy because of sin.

I was challenged with this task too when I went all in for Christ. I deleted my entire music library and trashed countless books and movies. I now do whatever I can to make sure that my salvation and freedom is not compromised, because of a lust for worldly possessions of any kind, but especially of the magical kind. Many witches, ones that are knowingly against God, are educated to the bible and its laws. They use it to cast spells and curses, gain favors and more.

When you play in the devil’s toy box, he claims you as his child.

You Do Need A Teacher

When you truly accept that we are fallen man, then you will understand that indeed, you do need a teacher, much like the evil Sith character, Kylo Ren, says in the Star Wars series. Not in the sense that you need to depend on any one man or woman or put your trust in any one teacher to lead you to the truth, but to have a man of God who can guide and disciple you and keep you accountable to God’s ways.

Jesus is Lord and He was qualified to disciple His Apostles well enough for them to also go and make disciples. He started by educating them in the ways, not of the force, but of God. To be clear, there are many good men and women to learn from. We all must use prayer and discernment to find and follow God’s men and women in truth. Our leaders must be loyal to Him and not themselves, for they are the Shepherds we can grow and learn with in Christ. Always bearing in mind that they are never meant to replace our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

John 14:6

Jesus, The Way, The Truth, The Life

Jesus Christ is our true teacher and our way to salvation. He is our door and our path. He is all we need. It takes an unshakable belief in Him to manifest any powers of God in this world by His name. While some can help us on this path to understanding what God wants for our lives, we are to learn to listen and learn from His still small voice, because He is with us. Jesus is the one who leads us on a righteous path, without witchcraft, without false teachers speaking lies and without the curses from the ruler of this world.

Blessings and thank you for your time you have taken out of your day to read this. There will be similar posts on this topic in the near future, because it is part of my story, part of my journey and my testimony of my path to be in a close relationship with Christ. I pray it will help you and others find the truth to what Christ is saying in this hour.

Please, like, comment and share if you can. Your support is necessary for this work to continue. Glory to God!

In Christ,

My First Money Miracle

When I was a child of around nine or ten, I lived on a street named South Abbie, in the poorest neighborhood of Empire, California. We lived next to a migrant worker’s camp at the end of the street and the house we lived in was in a cluster of rented houses near the end of the street. We had only moved to the house in the past six months, and right behind my house, there were some neighborhood boys who became my good friends. They were the Wallaces and they were what I recall to be a very religious family.

I recall my friend’s parents being very strict to their boys, but they were always nice to me. The two things I easily recall about their family was their discipline, because when the boys would get into trouble, their parents made the boys get a “switch” from the walnut trees outside their house so they could spank them. The second thing I remember the most about them was when I was unable to play with the boys. I would knock on their door and they would answer the door very quietly, because their mother would get migraines and was pained by noises of any kind. I didn’t know what migraines were back then, but I knew she couldn’t function well and the boys would always look desperately sad when she had them.

One Sunday, I attended church with the Wallaces. My parents never went to church, but they didn’t mind if I went with my new friends. The church was in Ceres, California, which was a half an hour drive from our house. I remember I had just received my weekly allowance for mowing our lawn the Saturday before, so I had some money in my pocket, a grand total of $2.50. It was the first time I had been to church in California, we had only moved there in the past year, so I was nervous about being with my new friends and their parents. When we got to the church and were in the middle of service, the offering plate was passed around. I quietly asked my friend’s parents what it was for. They simply said that they put money as an offering to the Lord in the plate, which looked more like a basket. In my child’s mind, I thought they would give it back at the end of church, so I put in all my money into the offering plate. I still recall feeling very nervous and scared about giving them all my money, especially since I had brothers and they weren’t so willing to give it back if they got a hold of it.

After service, I sheepishly asked my friend’s parents, “when do they return the money?” They laughed and said they didn’t return the money, and that the money was given to the Lord! I recall beginning to cry. I just gave away my whole week’s allowance and I had plans for it! The Wallace family comforted me and said that the money is now the Lord’s, but because I was faithful by giving the money, especially all of my money, into the offering that it would multiply ten times and return to me, because God was good. I was still scared.

That message really stuck with me. I was expecting to see something that day. I was excited! And throughout the week, I pondered what they had said and wondered, “when”? It was one night, while my brother Dave and I stopped at the local stop-and-save convenience store, that the promise came back to me. While walking back to the car, I saw a wad of rolled up bills. I grabbed the money. No one was around. No cars, no people, just my brother and me. So I picked up the money and put it in my pocket. I nervously but quickly counted the money and it just happened to be $25.00. The most money I had ever had in my entire life, and it was mine!

The Lord is faithful. He is good, and He is kind. I was just a kid, but that money miracle just happened to be 10 times the money I had given to the church offering plate earlier that week. Part of me felt guilty, as though I stole the money from God because the money returned to me and part of me felt shameful, because someone had dropped that money and likely missed it very much. It is said that God works in mysterious ways, but I don’t buy that, and I reject the guilt and feeling bad, because while the money was from Him, the guilt and shame isn’t!

The words of our Bible tell us how God works. He works through love, compassion and faith. The Lord had compassion on me that week, when I was just a little boy. He also taught me real lessons, which was to give generously and it will be given generously back and trust in the Lord with everything you have. And though I had seen such an amazing miracle as a young child, my later years of life tried to explain away and rob me of my first miracle from God. It wasn’t until these past few years that I have begun to re-believe the miracles and gifts God gives us as a youth and even now. God restored the memory of this miracle and even while I wrote this blog post out, He restored the sights, smells, memories, and thoughts I had nearly 40 years ago. He is so good!

The first servant reported, ‘Master, I invested your money and made ten times the original amount!’

Luke 19:16

Have you lost memories of the goodness of God? Can you recall the miracle moments in life you have experienced? I would love to hear about them! When we share stories such as these, they glorify our Father in Heaven. They allow our hearts to heal and to recall the special moments we have shared with our Lord. He is so good!

Blessings to you this day. You are loved!

You will always have a good excuse not to do something great.

Doing great things can be scary, scary in a primal way. Fear of failure or fear of success can get in the way of achieving something that you were likely created to do. This fear is a temptation, a temptation to give into fear instead of courage. These fears, which are excuses, are considered natural to this world, but they are not natural to the Kingdom of Heaven. Faith is.

“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”

Henry Ford

Your enemies know this. It is why they attack so often and with such intensity. They attack you through haters, through friends or family, and through naysayers who had given up on their own dreams and inspirations, or sold out to the worldview of rejecting greatness due to the fear of risk. We too can be on this list if we have, for the sake of convenience, comfort or fear have ever rejected doing something great. We can be our own enemy by giving in to the temptation of fear instead of remembering God’s promises. We must hate fear and overcome rejection.

Perhaps rejection is the root of not getting to a place of greatness? We have all been rejected before, by people who were once considered friends, by lovers, employers, or those who judged us for what they judged us by instead of righteous judgement. We have all been rejected before, either unfairly or sometimes fairly. What is the remedy for rejection? Adoption. The act of accepting something not of your own, as your own, thereby dismissing rejection.

Builder or destroyer? If we are like those of the world we have become cynical, critical, and negative when it comes to positive ideas and works. Perhaps even you have made fun of or ridiculed others’ ideas or plans because they did not make sense to you or you thought their plans would fail. Perhaps you placed judgement on others for following their dreams instead of encouraging them to go ahead with them? Perhaps you were jealous of their plans because you secretly wished for those things to be true for you and couldn’t make it happen?

If so, you are likely standing in your own way too. These are the marks of the enemy, who tempts us to envy, fear and destroy what is good in ourselves and others. It’s time to rethink and choose to have hope in ourselves and others again; to build rather than to tear down.

Are there great ideas or plans you have had in your life but failed to act on? Are there God-inspired dreams and visions you know deep down in your heart that are your purpose in life, but have lost the ability to overcome the thoughts that tell you “it probably won’t work,” or “what will others think,” or “if I fail…..”.

If so, it’s time to reclaim your dreams. It’s time to believe you can. It’s time to try again and it’s time to overcome the fears that go along with being inspired by God to do something great. It’s time to act.

It’s time to loose ourselves from the spirit of fear and rejection and remember that God gave us a spirit of power, love and a sound mind; and that we were predestined for adoption into sonship into our King Jesus Christ’s kingdom. We are co-heirs in Christ’s Kingdom when we choose to believe in Him and reject the enemies tactics to dissuade us from the moving towards our dreams and plans that can lead to more glory to our Father in Heaven.

Are there people you can encourage today? Encourage them!
Are there people who encourage or inspire you? Thank them and listen to them!
Are there naysayers in your life that keep you from greatness? Get rid of them!
Are you a naysayer in someone else’s life? Then let’s repent!

Let’s kill the serpent-like excuses that bite us! We are to be the encouragers, the builders, the fearless, the overcomers and the faithful. We are to trust in God with our plans, and trust that he will deliver us from the temptations of the evil one. We will have our trials and temptations and we are to help each other through them. In this way, we bring the kingdom of Heaven to earth!

Blessings to your understanding of this message, you are loved!

Is God Speaking To You?

Did you know – God speaks to you frequently? He can help you through any situation big or small, if you yield to Him and listen. He speaks through a still small voice and often through ways that are unique to your perception and experience of life.

Example: Yesterday, my step-daughter was looking for a missing sock. She couldn’t find it and she looked everywhere in the area of room she thought she left it and didn’t see it. So she asked Jesus for help. When she opened her eyes and turned her head, she could plainly see the sock in front of her and was surprised because she didn’t see it there before. She went about telling everyone in our household of her experience, because she was quite amazed that God, the creator of everything, would help her find her lost sock. He is faithful!

There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t receive messages. Some are simple messages that help me in my day, some are prophetic and are to be used to help others, and still another kind that are like data points that provide me with information about my current situation to aid me in spiritual warfare; to guide me when an unseen enemy is near, which is the spiritual discernment discussed in Colossians 1:9, Hebrews 5:14.

I receive a lot of messages for people, daily. I believe we all do. We all need to learn to discern them. People are what God cares about. They are also who He wants us to help. Does He care about your work, your business, your financial problems? Absolutely! People are who He loves and He will tell those who yield to Him what they need to know to encourage, guide, heal and deliver. In order to receive these messages, we must have our eyes and ears opened to hear the truths (Matthew 3:16) God has for us, so we will be able to obtain the knowledge and wisdom God has for us with every situation.

He gives us great gifts. I perceived that I received one gift, the gift of spiritual discernment, in 2018 when I had a supernatural Jesus Christ experience. I later came to know that the gifts I have were with me most of my life. They helped me make decisions for work, about people and about life situations. It was in 2018 that I became hypersensitive to the gifts through revelations by God.

Spiritual gifts that God gives us are without repentance (Romans 11:29), meaning, you likely already have them, have experienced them, or maybe you already have an active gift you use daily. You just may not be aware of what it is or what all of the capabilities are. Some of these gifts are listed in 1 Corinthians 12. The bible states Jesus Christ poured out His spirit to all flesh in Joel 2:28 and Acts 2:17. It is because of Jesus Christ’s spirit outpouring 2,000 years ago that we all can have the supernatural ability to hear, see, and experience God, today.

Activation: If you seek to hear God and want to be made aware of the gifts He has for you, you can be filled with the Holy Spirit (if you haven’t been already). You can receive the Holy Spirit by laying on of hands by elders who are anointed, which are usually found in Holy Spirit-filled church. Another way – that I was blessed with, is to desperately seek God with all your heart, with prayers and supplications, until you have a supernatural experience like I had.

Warning: The laying on of hands is serious matter and one not to be taken lightly. The gifts do come with responsibility and our enemy, who is in this world, may just make an appearance for you to question your new found gifting or knowledge of his kingdoms. Fear not, God is with you! Just remember to put on your full armor of God – and never take it off again!

When you become activated in gifts, you will become more aware of what God has for you and others. Your daily life can become easier because you start to rely on God to give you everything you need to live, daily. When you expect to receive words of knowledge, wisdom, revelations, you will. Much of everything God has for us is by faith; Jesus said that all things are possible for those who believe (Mark 9:23).

Calling: God is calling you. He has gifts given and more to impart. He only expects you to pick up your cross daily and to follow Him, the one who saves, in order to save others. It’s a calling and you are called now. Can you hear Him? Are you ready?

May our Lord Jesus Christ bless you to the understanding of this message and may your eyes and ears be opened for Him to impart His supernatural love to you and reveal your special purpose, the one you were created for, Amen.

You are loved!
