Religious Spirit

Image result for religious spirit

I was at the garage minding my own business when another driver asked about spiritual stuff.  I mentioned a few things I had seen and another fellow joined the conversation and said that I was full of demons. Bad thing to say to this lady!

I asked him how he knew that? He replied that "Healing has passed away and that if I was seeing demons on people then I was demonized."   I was stunned!  How could you ever think that?  That's ignorance gone to seed!

So the first thing I told him was that Healing was in the Old Testament and the new Testament and that the disciples were commanded to go heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons and cleanse the lepers in Matthew 10:8, long before Holy Spirit was given. (ref. Isa. 53:5, 1Pet.2:24)

As for being demonized  I doubt it as "a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand."  Jesus's own words!(Matt. 12:25)

Also, I explained to him how I saw stuff (occasionally) before I got saved but it was always demonic and it freaked me out.  I didn't want to see!  Fast forward to me becoming a Christian and getting filled with Holy Spirit inside of me and its a brand new world! Holy Spirit has helped me to see more stuff and guided me into greater truths so I can help more people.

In addition,  it's a fact that some psychics can see, just like seer gifted Christians can see in the spirit realm... The BIG difference is your source.  Is God guiding you or satan/lucifer/familiar spirit guiding you? That's the right question to ask!

So unfortunately this supposed Christian has believed a lot of junk and not read his Bible.   Like so many others with a religious spirit he has become totally ineffective at advancing the kingdom of God.  Imagine he wouldn't even vote!  Completely giving up on his right to influence society in a Godly way.

The icing on the cake was that he kept asking me who the first angel was... Like who cares?  What are you doing with your life to make a difference for God?  That's what really matters!

I was so not impressed with this fellow!   I told him, "Right...you sit here, in your little bubble waiting for the rapture and you are totally ineffective at advancing the Kingdom of God."  He got really upset at that.  So I asked him,  When was the last time you prayed for somebody and they got healed?  When was the last time you  introduced someone to Jesus.  When was the last time you prayed and demons fled?

The poor fellow that listened to us didn't know what to think!  When I told him about certain people not being allowed on my bus because of the demons in them  he really got interested.  Then I told him about the lady that found me after 3 or 4 weeks and she was so excited because her husband had finally been properly diagnosed after I prayed and was out of the  hospital feeling so much better.

So I know which bus the listening fellow wants to be on!  LOL....   As for the other guy.... what a waste.

Life is too short. I want to make a difference every day for the Lord.   Like I've said before  my usual prayer is, "Lord here I am. Please use me today!"

Anyhow... Thanks for reading... I needed to vent a bit, LOL.  May you have courage to pray that kind of prayer and follow Holy Spirit's nudges... It's definitely a life worth living!

Big hugs and blessings,

Angelic Court

Hi There....   Just a quick note.   I posted on my blog about going to the Angelic Court.... I was then asked several times to lead a group in going there..

I really didn't have peace to do that so I declined....  I felt bad but had to obey the Lord... Turns out that Ian taught about the Courts and he said the first thing to do is to cleanse your imagination.

To do that we say Jesus, Jesus... and wait till we sense Holy Spirit .  Then we tell the Lord that we've seen this and don't want it in our memory banks.  Then we Ask the Lord to forgive us  (don't give the devil a man to fight with),  and then ask the Lord to cleanse our imaginations.   He might show you a picture about this.

Then we step back physically and release the glory/victory that we have received. Pic by picture this is how it's done.  Trust me... so many times I would be seeking the Lord and all this junk would come up... That's because the devil doesn't want you receiving anything from Heaven!  So agree with God and cleanse your imagination..... And I bet Holy Spirit will show you what not to watch in the future! LOl.

Finally, remember it's all done by faith.   We do it by faith enough and then God gives us the reality of what we are doing.  Hallelujah!  Takes time for some of us to have our eyes opened  and that's okay!  I was a logical thinker too!

You can look up some great teaching about the mobile court on youtube too. 

Have a great day!

Tool Box Faith!

Hi again.    I was thinking about how much I missed my tools from back home since I moved.   Seems like I'm always needing another tool.   The hardware stores love me I'm sure!

Anyhow... There's a good analogy there.  The Bible is a tool box full of tools and each promise is a tool.   Now you can have that tool box in your garage for years and not know how to use those tools or even know what they are called, right?  Right!  Just ask  around...

In the same way we have tons of tools in the word of God but we don't know what they are or what they can do for us!   It isn't until we have a need and someone comes to help us that we realize what we have in our tool box!  

And I can also tell you that when I tried to learn how to use some of the tools in the garage I made a lot of mistakes. I bet you can relate to that too!

It's the same with the word of God!  We have all these wonderful promises (tools) at our disposal, but if we don't take the time to learn about these promises and what they can do for us we'll never get good at using them and we'll never get the jobs done! 

Tell you what!  I want to learn how to use all the tools in my tool box!  I want to be comfortable in anyone's garage!  I want to be able to recognize an angle grinder or a tap and die set because you'll never know when you might run into a situation where you need to know how to use them!

I especially want to know how to use a hammer  because God says his word is like a fire and a hammer that smashes the rocks into pieces!  Yeah God!   (ref. Jer. 23:29)

I want to know how to use various screw drivers, vice grips etc., etc.,  You get my point?

For the men.... pretend it's the kitchen tools that you need to learn how to use!  Same difference. 

God wants us proficient as using all his promises and tools!

Anyhow... I'm rambling, LOL

Have a great day!

Real Faith?

God is no respecter of persons.(Acts 10:34)  That means you and I are not favorites.  He does say however, that the just shall live by his/her faith.   (Rom. 1:17)
You say, "I have faith,"....  Well then tell me your recent testimonies!  Not as easy eh?

The truth is that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. (Rom. 10:17)   If we want faith we need to get a hold of the word of God, either by hearing it preached by anointed people or by reading it.  Then when a promise or verse hits our spirit we need to write that down and make a note of it.

Then as we start to meditate on it and speak it over and over we get revelation on it and it becomes a rhema word to us.   Then the next step is to decree that word over ourselves and our situations.   This is when our faith becomes active.   You see faith that can't be tested can't be trusted.  As you get tested your faith will become stronger and you'll see more victories.  Then the best part is you'll be able to pray for others and they'll get victories too!

It's the same for each one of us.  There are no short cuts.    I have results because for  over 20 years I spent  time speaking the promises of God over myself and my situations.   There is so much truth to the saying, "If you want a change you must make a change!"  

So you want victory?  Do the work....  It's that simple. 

God has no favorites.... He's promised to reward the people that diligently seek him and since he is His word and he's the living word  your best life is to seek Him! (Heb. 11:6, John 1:1)

Just think, after twenty years of your tv shows where will you be?  Or after 20 years of your hobby where will you be?  Where do you want to be?  That's what changed me.  I really, really wanted to make a difference.  I liked it when someone I knew used to say that all hell went on red alert when I woke up in the morning.    The choice is up to you.... I have lots of good confessions in this blog that will help you get started.   And Holy Spirit will highlight some good faith filled preachers for you if you ask.

Have a great day knowing how much you are loved by an amazing God!
Big Hugs,
