The Lord Is My Joy & My Salvation! ;)

I can think back on the most happiest moment of MY LIFE! It was when I very first met Jesus Christ for the VERY first time in my life (during a NDE) with NO previous knowledge of him! 😉 

Whenever I look nowadays at the pool steps and look at the very place where he once sat (during my NDE), my soul starts to cry emotional tears of joy and I start to get all joyfully emotional! I can’t help it! 

I think of my life BEFORE Yeshua/Jesus Christ came to rescue me from death that day (in more ways than one) and it seems like my life prior to him was pretty pointless. And then I think about my life AFTER meeting Jesus Christ/Yeshua during my near-death experience and how EXCITING and FULFILLING it was, KNOWING that a) there was a God and that b) that same almighty God really, truly cared about me, no matter what! 😉 I can’t even BEGIN to describe what that feeling is like!

I remember the swimming pool water being extremely cold that day, especially at the point in time when he told me to dunk myself under so he could “baptize me in his great, heavenly name!” I remember the feeling of JOY, ELATION, ESTASTICNESS, PEACE, LOVE, HAPPINESS, HEALING, JUBILATION that came over me as soon as I came back up to the surface of the water! It was the best feeling that my soul has EVER experienced in all its existence!

And when I READ the bible, ESPECIALLY the New Testament, I think to myself with amazement and wonder: “Wow! That is THE JESUS that descended down out of heaven to come save me that day! That is THE JESUS who sat me in his lap and giggled when he splashed water on me! That is THE JESUS who warned me of the End Times and his almighty Judgement! That is THE JESUS who told me I had a pure heart and a dizzying intellect!” And I sometimes feel emotionally overwhelmed. I’ve been known to CRY (emotional tears of jubilation and JOY) when I read certain bible passages about him or spoken directly FROM him!

Though at times in my life I’ve gone through some bad things, and/or have felt extremely anxious and depressed, the Lord Jesus Christ has ALWAYS been there to see me through! Plus (get this!), he EVEN has a SENSE OF HUMOR! I kid you not! Let me share with you one of THE MOST FUNNIEST things he’s ever done:

It was Spring Break 2003. Me and my bestfriend Sarah were heading off to Arizona and New Mexico to see the sites. We drove through severe rain in southern Arizona and by the time we hit Northern Arizona, it was severe blizzard-like conditions. Well, to be quite frank, I was getting quite BORED with the “traditional prayer format” of “Dear Lord, I need this or that. Help me please, Amen”.

So I turned to Sarah and said Hey dude, I got an idea! and started giggling. She was wondering what was up. I then help up a “pretend CB radio with my right hand” while driving and said into the pretend CB radio: “Eagle 1, Eagle 1, this is Eagle 2, over. We need some major help down here. We’re caught in a really bad snow storm right now and there’s about 15 cars or more on the side of the road and we don’t want to become one of them, over”.

I sensed nothing in response so far. So again, I help up my pretend CB-radio in my right hand while driving and said: “Eagle 1, eagle 1, can you hear me, over? 10/4, 10/4, We REALLY, REALLY need your help right now, Eagle 1, I’m dead serious! Do you copy, over?” and just then, Sarah and I heard “static crackle” at what sounded like an ACTUAL CB radio come out of the car’s radio system, along with the audible words: Stop worrying, eagle 2! Help’s on the way, LOOK BEHIND YOU – OVER“. Sarah and I just looked at each other and both said at the same time, “Is that an ACTUAL CB radio? How did they hear us? Weird…?”

Not long after that, Sarah and I noticed a small U-haul truck coming up in the right-hand lane off to our right. And then, all of a sudden, Sarah said, “Dude, I think you’re supposed to get behind the U-haul truck with their emergency flashers on”. So I quickly got in the right lane and we got behind the small U-haul truck.

And then…..Sarah started giggling. I said, “what’s so funny?” She said, “look at where they’re from!” Their license plate said “Washington”.  Washington was the 1ST PRESIDENT of the U.S. and the Eagle is our National U.S. symbol, THUS, “Eagle 1”! 😉 Therefore, the Lord NOT ONLY gave us an actual CB radio response IN RESPONSE to my pretend CB-radio prayer, but he also HUMORED us a bit in the ANSWERING of the prayer! 😉 Hehehe

But that’s just one of MANY instances where the Lord displayed his sense of humor to me! Another time the Lord displayed his sense of humor is when I was at work, and I was carrying a small metal pan. And about 30 seconds after my crush walked by, something made me “drop” the pan on the floor (that I had had a VERY firm grip on) and it made a BOOMING LOUD CLANG (which made my crush look back and laugh) and I could FEEL the Lord LAUGHING at me and the embarrassed look on my face! Though I could tell it was “affectionate/teasing” type laughter and not the cruel kind. hahaha 😉 

The Lord has ALSO done things where he silently encouraged me to go talk to this person or that person (who ended up being some of the very best friends of my life!) He’s been there for me through thick and thin! When I am smiling, HE is smiling! And when I am crying, I can sense that HE is crying, too! Which makes sense, considering that the bible says that it’s not his will that ANY should perish! 

Before Jesus came into my life, I was nothing, I was no-one! But IN him, I am everything, I am SOMEONE! Apart from him, I can do NOTHING! But WITH him, I can do ANYTHING! He’s helped me overcome my anxiety on certain things and my soda pop addition, etc. (some things I thought I’d NEVER break free from!) He’s helped to humble me and to correct me when I need correcting! He’s enlightened me and taught me SO many things about what his word IS and what it isn’t!

He’s taken the spiritual blinders off my eyes and has now shown me his full gospel IN FULL! He’s given me strength when I was depressed, downtrodden, anxious, alone or angry! He’s helped me to overcome the most difficult of situations and people! He’s grabbed me out of Satan’s grasp more than once! He will ALWAYS be there to listen to me whenever I have a problem, struggle or question about something! Basically, he’s the best thing that EVER happened to me in this life and apart from him, I WOULD have no reason for being! I am ALIVE today because of HIM! I am forgiven of all my sins because of HIM and the spiritual sacrifice he made for ALL of mankind! And someday, I’ll get to live with him FOREVERMORE! 

The Lord is MY JOY & MY SALVATION! 😉  

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lord Delivers From Addictions!

I’ve heard and come across many people who were addicted to drugs. And though I’ve never done a hard drug in my life and have NO IDEA what that’s like (selling nearly all you have just for that one “fix” or “hit”), I HAVE struggled (and overcome) OTHER “addictions” in my life.

Drug addiction can honestly be compared to several other addictions like sex, alcohol, porn, food, smoking, shopping, Youtube, masturbating, Netflix, sugary drinks/soda, videogames, gambling, etc. Why? Because the physiological effects are the same! These addictions “reward” the “pleasure center” of the brain and after the brain develops a “tolerance level” to it, it needs more and more and more just to be able to feel the same “pleasure” (high levels of dopamine/endorphins release).

After awhile, the body (and brain) becomes SO used to these “addictions”, that the physical body suffers severe withdrawals if said thing is not had (though drug and alcohol withdrawals are the MOST intense out of ANY of the “addictions” mentioned). But HERE is where the lies of Satan and his demons come in (as a whole): THEY are the ones lying to you in your MIND, saying things like, “You better have more of this addiction right now, or else you’ll DIE!” [And yes, some people who starve themselves COMPLETELY of their “addiction” — during a SEVERE drug/alcohol withdrawal symptom/s — DO die, but that’s a different post for a different day].

Lets say you have a food, sex, porn, or soda addiction, for example. Your body gets SO used to it, that it almost feels like DEATH the moment you try to DEPRIVE yourself of said thing or things. You might even feel like you’re gonna pass out and die if you don’t have it – whatever the “addiction” may be. Your brain says, “I NEED IT! I NEED IT!” While your physical body CRAVES IT! But you have to understand that the ROOT CAUSE of the addiction is not so much PHYSICAL as it is SPIRITUAL! For the true “root” of the addiction problem comes from Satan and his demons “tricking you” into thinking that you NEED that thing/s when you DON’T! 

So what do you DO, in that instance? Answer: Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus/Yeshua, in all spirit and all truth! And don’t just call out to him half-heartedly! Call out to him FROM THE DEPTHS OF YOUR BEING! Call out to him from the pure depths of your MIND, HEART, BODY AND SPIRIT! Tell him how long you’ve struggled with said addiction! Tell him you’re tired of said addiction and that you’d rather own IT, in his great heavenly name, instead of IT owning YOU! And then……..HAVE THE FAITH THAT HE’LL DELIVER YOU FROM SAID ADDICTION(S) AND HE **WILL**, MARK MY WORDS! 

For years and years and years and years and YEARS, I struggled with a SEVERE soda pop addiction! I know that might sound *laughably funny* to SOME, but I’m DEAD SERIOUS! The psychological/physiological effects I suffered from soda pop withdrawal was probably not much different from what an alcoholic suffers when they can’t have their alcohol or when a crack addict can’t have their crack. It was THAT bad.

I would get these TERRIBLE HEAD-SPLITTING MIGRAINE HEADACHES that felt like my head was being crushed AND aggressively pulled apart on each “temple area” on the sides of my head and also behind BOTH EYES! (Not to mention I’d also feel EXTREMELY NAUSEOUS and I’d feel pain from my head to my stomach!) And these headaches would hurt SO BAD, that I’d CRY and moan in AGONY for HOURS! (Even drinking caffeine or taking actual headache medicine didn’t seem to help either, usually!) 

And if people that hadn’t known me saw me, they probably would’ve thought I was going through some type of SEVERE alcohol/drug withdrawal, instead of mere soda pop withdrawal. {What the HECK do they put in those soda pops on the market today, anyways? I wonder if it was the “phenylalaline” ingredient that did that to me? Because I know they put that ingredient in Diet AND Regular sodas……}

However, that was only when I experienced severe withdrawals from having no soda pop [like, when I was younger and my parents refused to buy any or when I was older and forgot to get some at the store and ran out of it, etc]. As long as I had atleast ONE soda pop a day (be it Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, whatever), I was usually fine. But even WITH drinking the soda pop once a day, I’d sometimes STILL get the *withdrawal symptoms* that I’d get when I’d have NONE (Weird, huh?), and again, the process would sometimes start all over again……the head-splitting headaches, the pain, the nausea…..

When I was about 25 or so, I FINALLY discovered a migraine medication that actually WORKED (which was Exedrin migraine). It would knock out my migraines in 15 minutes flat and would help me to go about my day, whenever I started to get a headache or a migraine. However, keeping around a constant supply of Exedrin migraine pills then became a “hazard” for me (spiritually AND physically) because it actually allowed me to dwelve deeper and deeper into my soda pop addiction. It was then that I started drinking 2, sometimes as much as 3 Dr. Peppers or Cokes a day. It became an OUT-OF-CONTROL addiction. And I started gaining weight, as a result.

I still read my bible and prayed at this time and the Lord was showing me so much through his written word in the bible. But I still hadn’t fully understood at around age 20 what I do, NOW: In order to feed THE SPIRIT, we must STARVE the flesh! Because if we FEED THE FLESH/BODY, we are STARVING THE SPIRIT! And if we are starving the spirit in ANY type of way, we are giving heed to SIN! In other words, at around age 20, I was still controlled by my LUSTS (my lust for food, my lust for soda pop, and the occasional lust for the opposite sex).

And it wasn’t really until the end of last year or beginning of this year that I was FINALLY able to permanently BREAK FREE from my soda pop addiction……..the thing that had held me physically and spiritually captive FOR YEARS! “How did you do it?”, some might ask. Answer: Two things! Through the help of the Lord God Almighty and something called Hint bottled water! (Hint bottled water can be ordered at: http://www.drinkhint.com). In other words, the Lord God Almighty (atleast in MY life, anyways) utilized Hint bottled water in order to help ME break my soda pop addiction FOR GOOD! Plus (as a whole) I no longer get the nausea and migraine head-aches that used to come with it! I feel so blessed! 🙂

And now, if I try to drink a soda (even a diet one), it tastes WAY TOO SWEET! (Glory be to God!) Therefore, the Lord has successfully delivered me from THREE addictions last year: lust, alcohol and soda pop! 

The Devil is SO GOOD at telling people LIES: “You’re biologically programmed to be attracted to the opposite sex, might as well act on it”, “there’s nothing wrong with masturbation or porn viewing”, “there’s nothing wrong with drinking sugary soft drinks all day”, “there’s nothing wrong with over-eating!”, “there’s nothing wrong with getting an abortion or being an active homosexual”, “there’s nothing wrong with not reading the bible or not believing in the bible”, “there’s nothing wrong with getting high/doing drugs”, etc.

Basically, his LIE starts out with the 4 words: “THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH ________”. Now think about that. TRULY think about that for awhile. If there was “nothing wrong” with _________, then why is the bible so AGAINST it? Ask yourselves that, folks!

The sad thing with people with addictions is that they feel so hopeless and as if they have “no way out”. But ya know what? According to Revelation 20:10 “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever”. Therefore, we know from this passage that Satan HAS ALREADY BEEN DEFEATED (in the Lord’s future timeline) and is nothing more than a DEFEATED FOE!

So when you hear that little voice in your head that says things like, “You’re gonna get a headache if you don’t drink a soda pop today”, “If you go gambling, you’ll make more money”, “If you get high, it’ll be the best high you’ve ever experienced”, “If you have an affair on your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend, nobody will EVER know”, “you better have some alcohol or you’ll die”, “there’s nothing wrong with porn viewing and/or masturbation, go for it“, IGNORE IT! For that’s the voice of the DEVIL and/or his demons talking to you, trying to get you to do things that go AGAINST the Word of God! [Please remember that the Word of God is Jesus Christ Almighty HIMSELF and that the bible is considered the WRITTEN Word of God!]

Philippians 4:13 is one of the most beautiful pieces of scripture for it says: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”. Wow. SO TRUE, people of God! SO TRUE! Each and every time I feel tempted with something, I think about those words and apply them to my life.

Another passage that gives me strength in time of trials/temptations is Isaiah 54:17 which states:No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord”.

So I’ve told you all how I got delivered from soda pop addiction. I went from drinking 2-4 caffeinated, sugary sodas A DAY to now only drinking ONE can or HALF a can of non-caffeinated soda (if that) every Shabbat/Sabbath (Saturday) for my “Shabbat wine” since I don’t really like to drink alcohol OR soda anymore (as a whole).

And yes, I will sometimes drink a can or two of 7-Up every great once in awhile when I’m not feeling good/have a cold or have an occasional Strawberry Welch’s/Diet soda (like, maybe once a month or every other month or so, if that). But that is nowhere NEAR the ungodly amounts of soda I used to drink every single day, when my soda addiction was still going strong. And sometimes, even the tiniest bit of soda I DO drink tastes too sweet for me. So perhaps I might have to switch to tea or water for my “shabbat wine” from now on. Anyways……….

Some of you are probably wondering what I meant about my lust addiction, what all it entailed and how I got delivered from it. Well, the truth is, I hardly ever lusted or watched porn and that sort’ve thing when I was around age 20 or so. But every great, great once in awhile when I DID, it became addicting and out of control! More like “binge porn”, if you will.

And finally one day, I realized something. Most of the people in the porn business (be they male or female) were sexually abused as a child. So when you watch those people in actual sex acts, it’s like you’re watching that child (as an adult) get visually sexually abused all over again. In fact, the Lord showed me visions/mental images of many of those porn stars as children, fearfully crying as they were being sexually abused by their relative or a stranger! And it made my heart absolutely DISGUSTED at porn watching and I just couldn’t watch it anymore! I prayed to the Lord to remove ALL porn viewing from my heart and he did!

That was YEARS AGO and I still hold the same view, TODAY! Porn watching is WRONG! It not only destroys the mind, heart, body and spirit but it destroys relationships and marriages, it has MANY bad long-term psychological effects on the people who view it (such as a reduction of brain cells, according to several scientific studies……but again, why is that surprising?), it makes men disrespect women and women “objectify” men, etc. 

But in fact, the Lord’s now got it to the point in my life where now I can look at a guy and think he’s attractive without wanting to do anything with him physically (as a whole). And yes, I might still have a “lustful thought” from time to time (I’m only human), but I know in my heart and soul that the Lord’s gonna find a way to deliver me out of such things if/when I do and that fact alone pisses the Devil off! Because I know the Devil’s wanting and hoping that I’ll fall back into lust and soda pop addiction again but alas, those things will NEVER HAPPEN, MARK MY WORDS!

Again, the devil becomes SO ANGRY whenever I won’t give in to “temptations”. I know it is a time of “testing” and the Lord’s “refining” in my life. And I am okay with that. Because I know in the end that I will pass nearly every test, for the most part! And I know that if there’s ever a time I fail at such “tests”, that the Lord can help me pick myself up, dust myself off, repent and truly start living for him again once more! For I know as a FACT that it was the Lord of the bible who delivered me from such things (as a whole!) The same Lord that plagued Egypt, parted the Red Sea, closed the mouths of lions and much, much more! 

I KNOW it was THE LORD who spiritually delivered me from such UNGODLY THINGS and it’s the Lord of the bible and ALL creation that I’d like to PRAISE HIGHLY! 

Because I KNOW as a fact that I wasn’t spiritually delivered from these things alone/of my own accord and that the Lord had HIS mighty hand in all of this! There’s no doubt in my mind, WHATSOEVER! GLORY BE TO HIS GREAT, MIGHTY, HEAVENLY NAME! 😉

[On the other hand, women: BE FOREWARNED about today’s guys. And guys: be forewarned about today’s women. Whenever you date them, they WILL try to manipulative you for sex sooner or later. At first, it’s so subtle: they’ll make sexual comments about a movie scene they saw in a general movie or mention about a sexual comment one of their close friends had most recently made or tell a dirty joke, etc. 

And THEN, they’ll start with the common tagline, “But EVERYONE’S doing it……you’re gonna have quite a bit of trouble keeping a guy (if female) or a girl (if male) if you DON’T do it with him/her!” (Which implies said guy or said girl will leave you if you don’t have sex with THEM!) Oh well, just let that person leave you, in that case. They’re not worth it, in that scenario. For if they REALLY, TRULY loved you, sex would be the furthest thing from their mind, as they’d be far more focused on YOU and just merely enjoying being AROUND you and spending time with you and just merely having you in their presence!

And NO, not EVERY single straight guy (and ESPECIALLY straight female) is “doing it”. Some have strong religious convictions. Others tend to be on the Asexual side of the scale. So no, not EVERYONE is “doing it”, as it were. Although it’s probably true to say that VERY FEW are refraining from “doing it” (as a whole). However, if everyone were jumping off a cliff, would YOU do it, too? Just because there’s ALOT of people “doing something” doesn’t make it RIGHT, so remember that, folks!].    

But the point I wanted to make is THIS: If the Lord can deliver ME from MY past addictions, he can MOST CERTAINLY deliver YOU from YOURS! 😉

So why not call out to the Lord of all creation today? Why not call out to him with all your might (your mind, heart, body AND spirit) and TELL HIM how much you want to be spiritually delivered from all your addictions today!

But KNOW this: As soon as you TRY to break free from addictions in the Lord’s heavenly name, the Devil and his demons will fight you ALL ALONG THE WAY! So you gotta be STRONG! You gotta KEEP WITH IT! Don’t give up! Keep going! You CAN overcome it and you WILL overcome it! For if the Lord created the universe and the heavens, doesn’t it stand to reason that the Lord can help ANY one person on this Earth overcome any one THING or THINGS? Think about it, folks!

The Lord’s NOT gonna create the ENTIRE universe and the heavens, and then scratch his head in confusion over how to help a person overcome their addiction(s), am I right? 😉

But again, I’m not really sure why I share all this (all my personal struggles with addictions and overcoming them) but I hope this will help someone out there who’s struggling with some sort of addiction(s), be they great or small. 

And for another post on the subject of addictions, please read the following:

Satan’s Lies: Our Own Personal “Thorn-in-the-flesh”

Satan seems to have a Rolodex of lies at his disposal that he tries to use on each and EVERY single human on the face of the planet (rather they’re a true, biblical-roots Christian or not). And when one “lie” in his “Rolodex” doesn’t work on a person, he just keeps flipping through the Rolodex of lies until he can find a “lie” that sticks & perpetually RESONATES within a person’s mind, heart, body and spirit! 

And he uses a two-thronged approach. First, he tries to overpower one’s mind with his “lie(s)”. And then, once he successfully sinks one in, he then allows the demonic “spirit of fear” to take over the person. He’ll then go back and attempt to sink in ANOTHER “lie” and then send the “spirit of fear” on the person ONCE AGAIN. And so on and so forth. And then, before long, he has the person completely spiritually conquered & the person doesn’t even know what hit them! 

His “Rolodex” of lies are divied up into “Categories”. Some of the most prominent categories are finances, health, faith, beauty, lifestyle, marriage, dating relationships, religion, etc. And most of his “lies” read something like THIS:

  • “You’ve lost your job, you poor bloke! You’re never going to find another one! Might as well give up, NOW!”
  • “Your life is not worth living! Kill yourself, NOW! Then your existence will become pain-free!” 
  • “You’ve got cancer & don’t have much longer to live. Might as well live life to the fullest/sin to the fullest!” 
  • Young girls: “Boys will only like you if you have sex with them or show some skin”.  Young boys: “You’re gay if you haven’t had sex with a girl by the time you’re 15!” 
  • Women: “Guys will only like you if you have sex with them”. Guys: “Women will think you’re a loser if you don’t try to have sex with them!”
  • “Might as well take a hit off that bong, EVERYBODY’S DOING IT!” 
  • “Nobody wants to hear about your rumbling’s about Jesus Christ/Salvation!” 
  • “Being Gay is A-OK!”
  • “There’s nothing sinful about living the gay lifestyle!”
  • “All paths lead onto one! All paths lead to eternal paradise!”
  • “ALL world religions are right! ALL world religions lead to paradise!”
  • “Your spouse is cheating on you, TRUST ME! So you might as well cheat on THEM as well, in order to get back at them!”
  • “Your marriage will NEVER be healed or repaired!” 
  • “You have NO HOPE!”
  • “Your life is NEVER going to get better!” 
  • “Everybody hates you! Nobody loves you!”
  • “You’re a complete LOSER!”
  • “Your name’s been PERMANENTLY etched out of The Book of Life!”
  • “Nobody is going to CARE about your *Christian witness*/your Christian magazine/blog/newspaper publication”, etc.
  • “You’re such a failure! You can’t do ANYTHING right!” 
  • “YOU are the reason this bad thing happened to you! It’s all YOUR fault!”
  • “Satan doesn’t exist! God doesn’t exist!”
  • “Evolution proves there’s no God!” 
  • “The Big Bang theory disproves God!” 
  • “You’re fat & ugly! Nobody likes you!”
  • “You’re not quite skinny enough! You need to lose more weight!”
  • “You will NEVER be able to overcome your sex/food/hoarding/drug/alcohol addiction” [whatever addiction you may be struggling with]
  • “You will NEVER be able to overcome your same-sex/bi attraction”
  • “Jesus Christ doesn’t have the power to heal you or to save you!”
  • “Jesus Christ doesn’t exist!” 
  • “The bible is false! It was written by man!” 
  • Ladies: “Go ahead and date that guy! Go ahead and have sex with that guy before marriage! He’ll marry you, later!” Guys: “Go ahead and date that girl! Have sex with her before you marry her! It won’t ruin anything between you two!” 
  • “You’ll NEVER get right with God/Jesus Christ!” 
  • “Jesus Christ HATES you! He’s forgotten about you down here, you poor bloke!”
  • “Paganized Christian holidays are JUST FINE with God/Jesus Christ Almighty! He doesn’t consider them an abomination at all!”
  • “The Lord’s Holidays outlined in Leviticus 23 in Old Testament REALLY WERE *done away with*! You don’t have to partake of them, anymore! They’re just old……..**Jewish holidays**! They’re ONLY meant for the Jews and not for ALL of the Lord’s people!”
  • “Constantine helped spread Christianity — true, biblical-based Christianity — all throughout the Roman Empire”
  • “It’s okay if you stay overweight…….it won’t cause any adverse health problems”
  • “Who cares about that lump on your throat…….it’s not cancerous…….don’t worry about it!”
  • “Might as well have sex before marriage or *get high*, EVERYBODY’S DOING IT!”
  • “It’s just ONE penny……certainly the Lord wouldn’t consider you getting over-changed one penny a SIN now, would he?”
  • “It’s OK….You don’t need to pray for forgiveness of your sins………Jesus Christ already knows you’re sorry for them! Plus he already died on the cross to take your sins away!”
  • “You don’t NEED to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. It’s not required anymore!”
  • “The world is just as evil in 2015 as it was 20 years ago, it’s just that the advent of the Internet makes certain crimes more apparent, now”
  • “Natural disasters have NOT increased within the last 10 years”
  • “There’s actually a natural, scientific [“NON-bible-prophecy-related”] explanation that can explain/account for the outrageous INCREASE in animal deaths, sink-holes, earthquakes and volcanoes, etc.”
  • “ALL people of America no longer want or need God/Jesus Christ/the bible in their lives!”
  • “Christians are POWERLESS today to cast out demons/heal sicknesses/triumph over Islam/other world religions!”
  • “America will NOT suffer a financial/political collapse anytime soon! She’s a-doing just fine!”
  • “It won’t do you any good to raise your kids in the love of Jesus Christ and with the fear of the Lord! They’ll someday turn out to be godless heathens anyways, so why even bother!”
  • “You WILL have your children taken away someday if you try to home-school them! The Lord will NOT protect your family!”
  • “Jesus Christ can’t save you from any type of calamity! You’ll just have to fend for yourself!”
  • “Jesus Christ WANTED you to suffer this bad thing because he HATES you and LAUGHS at your suffering!”
  • “I, Satan, am the “loving god”, while Jesus Christ Almighty is actually the *hateful God!*
  • “You’re really not gonna be able to triumph over demons/demonic spirits/I Satan!”
  • “Jesus Christ does NOT care about you and won’t help you in your time of need!”
  • “Jesus Christ doesn’t care about your petty little life’s problems or your pain! He doesn’t give a crap!”
  • “Jesus Christ will place you in the CONDEMN pile, someday! You’re not GOOD ENOUGH to be let into the gates of the new heavenly city!”
  • “The world’s gonna end, soon! So you might as well “sin it up” while you still can!”
  • “You’re an absolute LOSER if you don’t drink/party/do drugs/have sex before marriage like everybody else!”
  • “You MUST wear the latest fashions, have the latest car/Iphone/house/etc. in order for people to accept you and like you!”
  • “You’re WAY too bad of a person! Jesus Christ can NEVER forgive you, you poor wretch!”
  • “You have no faith right now! And BECAUSE you have no faith right now, Jesus Christ Almighty HATES YOU, you miserable fool!”
  • ETC. ETC. ETC. 

It all starts out so small, too. And then the lies become bigger and bigger and more bolder, as time goes on. He starts out with the small little tidbits and then eventually works himself up to the “big lies”.

However, there’s some good news…….NO POWER IN THE *ENTIRE UNIVERSE* (NOT EVEN SATAN’S) IS EQUAL TO GOD THE HEAVENLY FATHER’S ALMIGHTY POWER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Translation? Whatever it is in life that you’re dealing with right now, Jesus Christ has an answer and a SOLUTION! 

Because remember that it’s Satan and his demons who HATE you, who REVILE you, who CAN’T STAND YOU, who HATE everything you stand for in the name of Jesus Christ Almighty! They HATE Jesus Christ Almighty with such VILE, PURE HATRED and BECAUSE they hate Jesus, they hate YOU (the true, biblical-roots Christian) TWICE AS MUCH, since YOU (the true, biblical-roots Christian) are one of Jesus’s most prized possessions in the entire universe! The redeemed soul!

Whatever it is you’re struggling with in life right now……take it to Jesus Christ in submission and in prayer…….He’ll listen to you. He’ll hear you. He’ll answer you. But you must pray to him with your mind, heart, body and spirit! And you must MEAN that prayer with all your heart, soul and MIND! You must TRUST Jesus Christ 100% and trust the fact THAT he has the power to save you! Because remember: A prayer without 100% faith and trust in Jesus Christ Almighty is no prayer at’tall!

“Lord Jesus, I come before you today with a contrite spirit. There’s so many *broken* people in the world today, not just here in America. I pray for healing for the people of this world AND this here American nation. I pray that whatever a person’s struggling with in life, that you’ll give them a divine bible-backed solution. I pray that you’ll open up the minds, hearts, bodies and spirits of people who’ve been skeptical of you, actively running away from you for so long or just plain flat-out hating you without even truly KNOWING you, Lord!

Please open up the hearts of all Muslims, Atheists, Hindus, Buddhists, Humanists, Abortionists, Agnostics, Satanists, etc. today! As many as are willing to HAVE their hearts opened up to you, Lord! And please guide them on the path to TRUE righteousness in YOU Lord, NOT the “false righteousness” that the world tries to *sell* to people today! And please bless them and keep them for eternity! Also please return all wayward Christians onto you, Lord! I know it’s not your will that any of them should perish! Thank-you, Lord! Amen”.
