Christian Occult Practices

Thousands, and possible more, practice an occult version of Christianity when they believe and practice that our words carry supernatural power to release favor, ability, opportunity, confidence and God's goodness. Joel Osteen and Paula White are big supporters of this false doctrine.

Also, do not place yourself in a position of declaring and decreeing that the heavens open and God does what you declare and decree. You may find out that you are setting yourself up against Him.....

God's Judgement is Here

If I told you that Satan himself married someone I know in a Presbyterian church and both afterward flew in a jet to their honeymoon locale drinking champagne, would you buy it? Or, if I told you of individuals that I know that are werewolves; they actually have the ability to change back and forth from human to wolfman, would you believe me? These are a couple of examples of what Dr. Rebecca Brown sells you in her writings. And, she has sold 100's of 1000' of books. Really.

Sensational lies cloaked as truth so she can masquerade as a minister of the Gospel. Judgement of God is here folks and I don't believe it is here because of the sin of the sinners. I believe it is because we lack righteousness. We are biblically illiterate, experientially oriented and don't know the difference between the Holy Spirit and a demon....that's in reference to what I have been looking at and some are calling 'revival'. That isn't the Holy Spirit and it isn't revival. What we are experiencing is sensationalism and emotionalism void of biblical teaching and the great falling away...from God. False apostles and prophets have come in and we have embraced their deception as long as we 'feel' something while they get rich. In the meantime, children die daily due to a lack of water and medication....but, we want to place our seed in good soil, so we can reap....Indeed, we are reaping what we have sown.

Our Move to Florida

Well, we moved. Phew! That was a bigger adventure than I had anticipated...but, we are glad to be back home. Starting a church and still settling in. Church starts next Saturday...no, we aren't Seventh Day Adventists...just offering an alternative service.Will keep you up as 'things' develop

Why I Share My Testimony

When I became a Christian some 20+ years ago, I used to share my testimony rather freely. I met with some rather unusual responses as I was quite naive and rather zealous to win the world for Jesus Christ. I expected those who did not know Jesus to fall to their knees in repentance and the ones who knew Jesus to welcome me with open arms of love. I told you that I was naive.

What happened was man...y who did not know Jesus did not want to know me or hear about Him because they thought that I was a freak.

Telling Yourself the Truth

How is your thought life? Are you under the influence of the Holy Spirit when it comes to what is going on in your mind?

Folks, the way and what we think affectseverything; the way that we feel and our behavior/actions. Wrong thinking produces wrong emotions, wrong reactions and wrong behaviors - and unhappiness! So, when you learn to deal with your thoughts, you have taken your first step on the road to real contentment.

Jesus promises us in John 8:31-32 that if we remain or abide in His word, we will be His disciples.

Come Out Of Hiding

Wherever you are in your walk as a human being, God Himself would love to reveal Himself to you. You may be a Christian who is surrounded with the 'things' of God; church, bibles, Christian friends, Christian books and various paraphernalia but you really don't know Him. Or, you may be an occultist or pagan who is attempting to manipulate the spiritual realm for your own well being. You have your beliefs, practices and paraphernalia. You may be sincere in your attempt to pursue Truth.

In The Name Of Jesus

The contemparary church would do well to follow the example of the early church, not to ignore the demonic, but to focus attention on Jesus, who defeats the demonic. Undue concern and involvement with the demonic has often been seen as opening oneself up to its influence. The well-known passage of C.S. Lewis from his preface to The Screwtape Letters bears repeating here:
There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them.

Selling One's Soul

Periodically I receive inquiries from individuals who believe they have 'sold their soul to the devil'. I would like to address that one is not able to sell the soul to any god, 'For every living soul belongs to Me' Ezekiel 18:4. Thus the soul is not to be 'sold' due to the ownwership of its Creator. No one supercedes God. We, as humans, do not own our own soul to begin with, thus we cannot 'sell' what is not ours. As well, the devil does not have the means to 'buy' a soul.

Spiritual Warfare

Many Christians today are losing the battle in spiritual warfare because they lack an adequate knowledge of God's Word. This ignorance has led some people into occult practices that are cleverly disguised as 'neutral' self help techniques. Others have one foot in the world and the other foot in the Bible; thus compromised, they cannot understand why biblical principles never seem to work for them. Defeat is commonplace because their lives are not established on truly biblical principles but rather on the shifting foundation of human experience.

The Indwelling Spirit

'The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you' Romans 8:11 NLT

I love that Scripture!God Himself lives in the born again Christian. Man, if that doesn't get your horn honking, you may still be dead in your trespasses. Or, you may have lost focus on what really matters. Folks, this is a passing stage of His plan. Don't get 'hung up' on this world and it's ways. We aren't 'obliga...ted' to do what our flesh tells us to do. Christians can actually have joy in a bad situation.

1983

I will not die but live,
and will proclaim what the Lord has done.' Psalm 118:17

I remember when the Lord spoke to me in 1983. I was still battling the same demon that attempted to kill me when I was a satanist. The demon returned and continued to battle me to take my own life. The battle continued and the Lord told me that I was not to die, but he was going to use me to tell others of who He is and what He has done.
30 years later, I look back at the profound Truth and faithfulness of the Lord. God is indeed very good!

Finished With Self

God has made us, says Paul to the Ephesians: "We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus." We are 'to be conformed to the image of His Son'. That is the language of scripture. So that we may say that the reason for His death on the cross is that you and I might be saved and separated from that life of self. "He died for all", says the apostle again in 2 Corinthians 5. We believe 'that one die...d for all, then were all dead; and that He died for all.' Why? For this reason, says Paul: 'That they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again.' That is the life to which we are called. The life that says I have finished with self, I have died to myself, and my one concern now is the glory and honor of God.

True Freedom

A key to your spiritual; mental,emotional, and physical freedom is to respond to God and not react to the devil.
