Apathy

Apathy

One of the biggest struggles you will face when attempting to free someone is apathy. That’s not to say that the person is comfortable with their entrapment but a clinging to what’s familiar and a lack of hope work together to create the perception that it is comfortable for them.

You need to build up the persons faith, the only way to do this is to direct them to Christ for hope. Every time they pray and you pray always request strength to stand and hope, faith and endurance for the person. Freedom is seldom instantaneous, but a process. That can take years to complete. This may seem daunting to some, but it’s worth it. Most people can’t remember what it was like before the demons took control of their lives. Believing they deserve the treatment given.

Keep this in mind when analyzing their behavior, do not be quick to judge but ask yourself would you do anything differently? It’s not our place to judge, but to put them in a position for Christ to deal with them and use them. We are not here to decide someones worth, but hold true in the face of temptation. Anything less and we’ve fallen into the same trap the person themselves are in.

Choose Now Whom You Will Serve

Choose Now Whom You Will Serve

Deu 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Jos 24:14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.

Jos 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Jer 21:8 And unto this people thou shalt say, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I set before you the way of life, and the way of death.

[/quote]

This call has been placed before the nations repeatedly over many successive generations. Once again it has been issued and the Choice has been placed before us in this generation. The question still remains just who are you going to serve, Will it be God or will it be your own interests and your own selfish desires. There is no compromise, there is no hedging of the bets to see which way the wind blows, there is no place for politics or social conditions or economic concerns. You have placed before you a solid choice between two extremes and the expectation of a commitment that is in line with the choice you make.

You either serve God or you serve Satan. You look out for your salvation or you look out for your supply of Mammon. You are in submission to your God and your king Jesus or you are in total control of your own life serving other Gods of this world. What is the Choice and commitment that you intend to make. Make it now, choose your path.

Exactly what Jesus said here is exactly the situation this generation is in concerning the areas of this world once considered the strongholds of Christendom; In fact all the deceptions this generation face is listed here.

Rev 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

Rev 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

Rev 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Rev 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

Rev 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Rev 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Rev 3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Published before you is what is known as The Standard, this is the same Standard that was prophesied about so long ago. It is Bible based and explains exactly how the kingdom of Satan operates, which is so needed now as we enter the last days and the demonic hoards start to come in as a flood to try and drive Christianity from the face of the land. As the demons become more belligerent and sure of themselves this gives you the tools needed to oppose them and drive them back. Albeit with a lot of endurance at times.

[quote]

Isa 59:19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

Isa 62:10 Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.

Isa 62:11 Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

Isa 62:12 And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

Jer 50:2 Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.

Jer 50:3 For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast.

Jer 50:4 In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God.

Now this Standard will only be of use to you if you see and understand what it is showing you. Yes a lot of demons are named and demonic legions organized into their respective chains of operation but that is just the map of who, what and where and how. To be able to effectively use this Standard to combat the powers it maps out you also need to grasp the philosophy behind Satans tactics of operation, do that and you are able to grasp how their game plan operates. Only once you have that the rest becomes academic and mostly simple routine.

Also keep in mind that you also need to be able to operate in the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ and the covering of his blood if you want to work against these demonic hoards, Do not try and come against them if you do not have that authority or covering, they will eat you for breakfast. What is laid out here is very real and not something to play with and these covering demonic entities are not very nice if you tick them off. They can rob a person of their sanity, they do bring sickness and poverty and they do kill. If you are not well grounded in the scriptures and your faith in God then do not play with this Standard. It is not for kids playing some occult game. If you don’t know what you are doing, leave it alone. That warning is not hype, I’m deadly serious ! You have no idea what we had to endure when putting this Standard together. Yes it works very well and is very effective in freeing people and it does drive the gates of hell back but it is better left in the hands of those that actually have experience in a deliverance ministry. Yes there is a lot more to come and it is being added to daily but there is also enough here to warrant publishing and distribution to where needed.

Points to draw your attention to;

Right throughout all the chains it needs to be noticed that the attacking and defensive lines are all integrated with and attuned to the recruitment lines. This is the war that the kingdom of Satan is engaged in, recruitment either into a false religion or the occult straight. They have lines to punish those that resist and lines to reward those that follow and lines to isolate those they cannot tempt. They have lines to empower those that have fallen to their deceptions so that those caught up can be used to recruit others to the same deceptions they themselves are caught up in. It is all about gaining a hold over the souls of men and recruiting more with each successive generation.

The type of warfare is accomplished through coerced temptations where the victims are tempted in small, seemingly innocent things that gradually bring about a separation between them and Gods protection whereupon the more destructive legions gain an open door ending up in full rebellion and a renouncement of God altogether. Of course once a family tree has been corrupted it becomes easier to retain the fallen state of the family over many successive generations.

To demonstrate how this process works consider the following passages that talk about the temptations of the world that Satan places in our path with the objective of bringing about situations where we are drawn away from God and placed in a position of vulnerability where the legions of hell can get to work on us.

[/quote]

The temptations spoken of here are often accompanied by hardships to make them seem more desirable or wise, they lead into the sins of idolatry or spiritual whoredom. Sets the victim on the road to the worship of Mammon or faith in an alternative to Christ or the promotion of self over God.

Cutting

Cutting

Cutting is an addiction. But like any addiction it can be broken. I was fucked up as a child, are you surprised I turned out to be a cutter? It was a form of venting for me. A way to bleed out pain and emotional damage. It worked well in the beginning, but I know from experience it opens a door to the demonic. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Cutting was used in ancient times as a form of Baal worship. It’s also mentioned in the NT in regards to the man infested with a demon group called legion that Christ cast out. It’s highly associated with mental illness.

From my understanding it’s a sign of deep rooted soul wounds. Soul wounds occur when a person is deeply emotionally hurt. That hurt acts like a wound, just as lethal as any physical wound. But often ignored.

Before attempting quitting cutting I would suggest asking the lord for healing. Pray for healing. Quietly and with humility of heart. Do this often. If you do not. They will make your wound worse. Basically if you suffered hurt in your past they will blow it out of proportion so much in your own mind that your very life is no longer worth living. It’s a dirty trick but a trick none the less.

The lord will heal you if you let him. And life will be good again. Have faith.

God and Marijuana

God and Marijuana

What is Marijuana?

It is a mild hallucinogen. Meaning that in large quantities it has the potential to cause hallucinations. And in some people it can act as a hallucinogen in small quantities as well. Although it is a widely used drug, There is very very little actually known about it’s long term effects. To date there have not been any major studies endorsed by the government of Canada on weed and it’s effects. The majority of what I’m presenting to you is my own study based on interviews with chronic users and personal experiences.

Weed and youth

Although there are few willing to admit it there is a weed pandemic going on right now in western civilization regarding the use of weed. The majority of the users are youth, high school age. Between the ages of 15 and 21 it is most common on my study. Before you approach your child on their habit you should be armed with some facts first.

Long term effects of Marijuana use.

There is a term users use for the effects weed has on long term or over users. It’s called permafried. What it means is that the damage caused by the drug to the brain has reached the the point where it no longer able to function normally, but has the person in a permanent state of “High” Upon interview with long term users still functioning normally they stated that it is a little known fact in the chronic circles that you take 3 month breaks once a year to prevent yourself from becoming permafried. However this is only effective if a dependance hasn’t been made.

Dependance.

Studies Claim that there is no addictive chemicals within weed. However upon interview of various users of various age groups I uncovered immediately that it is in fact an addictive substance. People reported getting the “shakes” a common withdrawal symptom. Reported headaches, heart aches, body sickness. Experiencing cravings, such as smelling the substance where there is none, a general craving..

collapsed lung

Collapsed lung is uncommon side effect of smoking weed. What happens is your lungs relax when you smoke it. When this happens your lungs no longer cough up the flem that’s created from inhalation of smoke. The more damaged the muscles become the less they will work. Eventually you stop coughing up the liquid that’s building in your lungs, this creates a chance that when your lungs exhale they will cave in on itself, called collapsed lung.

How does it affect you spiritually?

It opens you up spiritually, it is an open invitation to the spiritual, all hallucinogens are. It has been used to help guide people through spiritual quests, in other words, used as a potion in a sense, just like love potions are a sin to drink or possess or make, so is weed sin to use in help in contacting the spiritual realm.

What does the bible say about it?

It is used in alternative religions for deeper insight to their religion, that alone should tell you where the bible stands

Weed and the gift of prophecy:

Personal experience:

During high school we had our psychology teacher tell us about what we do know about weed. He told a story about a girl who smoked it and knew she couldn’t handle it. That she spent a weekend running away from monsters because of it.

I knew I couldn’t handle weed but I smoked it anyway. Once you have the first puff you’ll always want more. However no high will ever be like the first one you had, you’ll be chasing the dragons tail as it’s called. Trying to get that high you had the first time.

Now spiritually I couldn’t handle it, this has been proven to me time and time again. But I always seem to make the same mistake over and over again of thinking I could handle it maybe this time. But I never could..

as I observe the people around me I’ve come to understand that the majority of the population is self medicating. You see there is a hole in man. We can be the most successful person in the world and still be dissatisfied in our lives. Our jobs, and victories and defeats eventually are not enough for a growing soul. But because of lack of understanding, or lack of will. People don’t turn to the one who can full that hole in our lives. God made a place for himself in our lives. It’s a basic need in our very selves. Without turning to God. We are robbing ourselves of developing further, beyond the point of just a job, just a house, dog, wife and kids..our lives are defined by the lords grace to show us himself, and the childlike nature of exploration renewed in us as we discover the hidden things the lord has planned for us…and the universe in a way that will question our old selves in such a way that we are no longer the people we once were.
