The Year of the Lord’s Favor


So what if this was it? The year where all debts were cancelled? A clean slate? Well, we are to preach the message as if it is the last hour. He has poured His Spirit out with this command.

It is His gift to mankind. In 2 Timothy4:2, we are told to, “Proclaim the message, in season and out. Point out errors, warn people, and encourage them. Be very patient when you teach them.”

As I said in my last post, some do not accept teaching. But I wanted to point out, not from a place of pride, teaching is only from the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. And it is with the genuine love for people and the concern for their soul, not for selfish ambition.

When I see people, striving to sell something as it relates to ministry, or self-promotion, I can only be a little bit suspicious. The enemy loves to get a foothold in this part of our soul. We are all very susceptible to this sin. I can see how many times he tripped me up with this. I almost smelled the smoke of my own burning flesh.

The other day I was thinking back to my rebellious youth. I had come into a department store and had started working with a girl who was very sweet and pretty naive. Another girl was a bit older than us and she was more worldly. She was a hard rocker, with a boyfriend in a rock band. So, I kind of fit right in the middle. She told us all about her escapades, as she went on the road with him and his band. Helen, shocked by all her stories, and me, just laughing at everything, as if I knew it all. I thought I was so cool. I saw Helen doing things she wouldn’t normally do, like smoke cigarettes.  Helen and I would go out after work to the place across the street. This is when I realized what it was to influence a persons behavior. Never thinking about the negative aspect. I just thought it was humorous.  I found this out at my performance interview.

My manager sat me down, and spoke. “Listen. You have tremendous leadership potential. You just need to channel this in the right direction.” There was another guy in a department who I would talk to when I would walk through the store. “You need to slow down.” He would tell me. “Hmm, whatever, that’s supposed to mean.” I thought. The guy was about in his 30’s and I thought he was older than dirt.

I was about 18, and I thought I had the world by the tail, and no one could tell me what to do. I sure had no idea what they were talking about. And no one could teach me anything about anything. Isn’t it funny how I can still remember their words now?

The Lord tells us, that the Holy Spirit calls all things into remembrance. He is our, “Paraklete,” or Counselor. So He had actually placed so many in my life all along my path, to guide me, to warn me, to encourage me. As my stubborn feet, kicked, and dug in. As I shook my own fist and questioned. He knew, I would one day bow my knee in repentance. But how much suffering came first. Yea, I had fun, but at what cost? Believe me, there’s a lot of very small print at the bottom of that bill of goods. There’s nothing in the end. With the Lord, there’s a much better deal. I’ll take the clean slate…Thank you! His blood, for my sins??? Why hesitate? Oh, and did I mention? It’s a FREE gift!

Now the Lord said to Peter that, “Satan had requested to sift him as wheat.” But he reminded him that He would pray his faith remain strong, and when he was finished, he turn and encourage his brothers.”

So we are all allowed the same opportunities. Our Heavenly Father, does not play favorites. And there is no sin too great to be forgiven. However, there is only one way up, and that is by bowing down. Repentance.

“Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord!

Tearing Down Strongholds


In my last post I wrote about the need to “rebuild the foundation,” in my life, as it pertained to my loved ones. I could see the enemy laying the groundwork, for many years, and he had robbed us of so much. The Holy Spirit, revealed everything to me, through His discernment, in His given time.

I had been deceived. Angry. Bitter. I had fought, because of the years of hurt that I’d experienced. Every bitter seed sown into my heart. The enemy had used this. And this is why the Lord tells us to keep this from taking root. Because the enemy is so good at what he does. He will allow this to grow in soil and we have eyes that perceive something, but we are looking through a flawed glass. He loves this. To focus on something else, so that we are distracted from the truth. As long as there is discord. Division. Because the power is in unity. That has always been the Lords message to us.

So if you see contention and division, you can bet that the enemy is at work. Spinning lies, to keep you divided. But how does he do this? He is a master at his craft. He’s been at it since the beginning of time. In the Garden of Eden. Look at how he spoke to Eve. He posed a question to make her doubt her creator. He didn’t use a blatant deception. It was a question making her doubt the authority of God.

Satan uses enough truth mixed with lies, to make it acceptable. This is the world system. He rules the world system, until the return of our Lord. Now, our responsibility as believers, is to understand this and to realize that each day presents another day of warfare.

He uses the people closest to us to bring us down. So therein lies, the meaning of the words which Jesus spoke of when he said, “And do not think that I came to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be those of his own household. (Matthew 10:34) The warfare caused by the knowledge of this truth, is incredible, and the enemy will do everything possible to divide as a result.

Paul had spoken of this warfare in Ephesians. We skip past this in many teachings, and it is the most important aspect of a new believers life. I never understood what was happening to me in most situations, and I think that many believers are lost to the world, because they aren’t trained.

Christ taught His disciples to be spiritual soldiers and this is what is important. The Bride of Christ is a warrior Bride. We fight against spiritual forces of this world. As in any military, we need to understand our enemy. Paul said, “We are not ignorant of his schemes.”

In 2 Corinthians 10:4 “The weapons we fight with are not of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” (NIV) Or in the New Living Translation, We use God’s might weapons not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of the human reasoning and to destroy the false arguments.

Now let’s look at the spiritual world versus the carnal world, for all the cynics out there. When you look at this world, you must admit, there is an order to it. There’s no denying this. Even the seasons, give reason to believe that there is some order to the universe.

Now, there is also an order in the spirit world, as there is in the natural world. Paul told us that “natural world speaks of things eternal.” So, we do know that the spirit world came first, and will exist after this.

We know that there is a heirerarchy, because our we are told of the greater and lesser beings. And He gave authority, even in heaven. He began this also in the Garden of Eden. It was important for everyone to submit to some authority and no one to be a law unto themselves. This is why Satan is referred to as, “the lawless one, full of rebellion.” It is also why the Lord said, that “He demands obedience above sacrifice.” And rebellion is as witchcraft.”

He wants us to know that He is a Father who loves us and protects us. That His discipline is not out of anger, but to keep us safe, from the enemy. He is full of love and compassion, as a perfect Father. The enemy’s lies are to keep us in fear and running from His love and protection, just as Adam and Eve did in the Garden.

The enemy will get a space, or foothold, in our mind,  and if it is anger, toward someone, he will spin a lie. Now our mind is like a battlefield. If this lie is not dealt with, it becomes a fortress, or stronghold. A stronghold is a belief system, by which we operate. Our basis for ‘truth,’ now comes from this position. This instead of God’s Word.  This is why the Lord tells us to “pull this down.”  We are told to “cast down every vain imagination, which exalts itself against the knowledge of Jesus Christ.”

I had a pastor preaching years ago about the meaning of Golgotha, and how appropriate. “The Skull.” For Christ to be crucified on the Mountain, and to have told us, in essence, put to death, every thought, which enters our mind, that doesn’t come from Him. I saw this place, when I went to Israel, and it gave me a shudder, to know, his blood ran down from this hill, for my sickening thoughts, which I refused to crucify. Every nail, that I placed in His flesh. Every thorn, I pounded into  His head, every time, I spit on Him. Every time, I mocked Him. Yes, that was me. And I wouldn’t dare think otherwise. All I could do was bow my head and say, forgive me Lord.

The enemy will go back and forth between two or more people. Hoping that they will not speak. He will continue to do this and build on this. The people get angrier and angrier. Sometimes not even realizing it is a lie. Terrible destruction happens as a result. As believer’s it is very frustrating. Even seem insane. Don’t forget. The enemy is good at what he does. Judas was a disciple. Just remember love each other, because the Lord loves all of us, and our one common enemy is doing this.

This is why the Lord says, “And if a brother offends another, go to this brother and speak to them.” Sometimes it has never even taken place. The enemy has lied about the whole thing. This is also why intervention takes place in families. Because the offending person, is spinning lies to everyone and keeping each person in their place. Hoping that no one finds out.

Why does a person do this? Because the enemy has this person so bound up in fear about their own sin, that they’re afraid, if anyone ever finds out who they really are, they will not be loved. But they have forgotten, that the Father knows all the secrets of our hearts. The hidden things. He loves us. The enemy has deceived them.  So, for the rest of their life, they live in bondage to the enemy. He holds the keys. He torments them. Satan is referred to as, “The Accuser of the brethren. He accuses us night and day before the Father. ” The Father wants repentance, and the enemy does not.

As long as we are in darkness, we are in prison. The Lord told us, “That they overcame him by the word of their testimony, and the blood of the lamb, and by not loving their lives unto death.”

 

The Skull

So, let’s tear down the strongholds together, and remember to love one another, as the Lord loves us!

Guardian of Souls


As I have been blessed to be a part of so many people’s lives, coming and going, I realized, it has been a test, of sorts.

After the loss of my brother, and my father, a fact emerged, which I knew was something which was a gift, which the Lord had given me. In spite of the fact that it was quite painful He would use this gift, as the seed, to bring forth fruit. And the fruit would bear more fruit.

I was to be a witness to last wishes, as it were, and actually been in the presence of my brother, as the Lord took him home.

This would be the beginning, as I found, of the souls, which would be entrusted to me. I would make trips to the nursing homes, the hospice, hospitals, and literally, anywhere, which the Lord would see fit to send me. I would be in rooms with families, to usher those souls into the hands of the Lord. Sacred moments, prepared in advance.

I began to understand what the Lord meant when he spoke to Peter and he had a request for him, “feed my sheep,” he said. To tenderly care for the precious souls left in his care.

Timothy was reminded, “to guard, what had been entrusted to his care.Turn away from Godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is commonly called, knowledge, in which some have professed and in so doing have wandered from the faith.” 1 Timothy 6:20

The Lord reminds us that he “guards the feet of his saints.” (That isn’t someone deemed a saint by the Catholic church either) It’s anyone called and anointed by God.

He has told us that when we’ve been tested and shown that we can be trusted with a little bit, then we can surely be trusted with the keys to the kingdom of heaven.

The problem is that most people cannot see past, ‘the little bit.’ Satan has them so blinded by pride, power, or greed, that this is where they begin to stumble.

Now, I have a true legal guardianship of my brother. In man’s legal terms it is written, Guardianship of person and property. But, stealing ones property to most people would really be infuriating. Although in my mind, this is not why I was called into action.

No, my calling and purpose was defined by God as a Guardian of souls. And this is what has been tampered with. My God owns the cattle on a thousand hills. So doesn’t all property belong to him? Yes. So it is the souls of these, which are of his greatest concern. This is why He steps in.

Yes, there’s a plan and it involves my calling. I know who I am. It has taken me a while to be sharpened for the task. But I see my lineage. There is my great uncle Harvey Graase. I laugh about him with my family. He worked for the US Department of Treasury. My mother and my relatives used to tell us the stories all the time. He lost his eye to a gunshot by Dilinger. He was one of the Untouchables. My Aunt told me when they would go to Chicago to visit him, they loved it. He was a rough kinda guy, just as he should be, and he’d reach under the bed, and grab a cigar box filled with different colored, glass eyes. He would tell them to pick out which one they wanted him to wear. Now that’s just plain cool. Urban legend? I don’t think so. I did a record search and got some of the papers. He certainly was working for them at that time, and my crazy cousin was right about one thing. A lot of the guys under Elliot Ness, sure didn’t get the credit they deserved. But then again, if he was anything like, I am hoping, he wouldn’t have wanted it.

Now, my point is there are true spiritual ‘Untouchable’s.’ And believing to be from that lineage, the Lord had already spoken this into existence. Elliot Ness had a difficult time finding ‘the incorruptible’ men. Just as our Lord has a tough time finding the ones untouched by the world’s pull. The ones to guard the soul’s entrusted to them. So, God being a supreme Elliot Ness, did speak of these chosen ones. The remnant. 1Chronicles 16:19-22 When they were but few in number, few indeed, and strangers in it, they wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another. He allowed no man to oppress them; for their sake he rebuked kings; Do not Touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.

There is no legal document which I need to give me this power.  It was ordained by God. It is the same providence which made Mordecai speak those famous words to Queen Esther, “Do not think that because you are in the kings house, you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place. But you and your father’s family will perish. But who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:13-14

All of us have unique callings and purposes, in this life. It is up to each and every one of us to choose whether we will fulfill this or not. God tells us, we have free will.

One day about a year ago, I had my bible stolen out of my car. It was a study bible, which I had for years. Many markings and scriptures highlighted. I decided to report it to the police, just in case, it was necessary for safety reasons. I still believed, the person needed it, more than I did.

When I sat down with the officer, he was a little stunned, that someone would steal my bible. After sharing that I had two perfectly good DVD, players, which were left behind, he laughed and said the same thing. “The person obviously needed this.” But then somethings strange. “Hey, do you have a big dog?” “What? No, why do you ask?” As I started thinking, maybe he got the letter’s mixed up, and he meant, God.

“Oh, I just know your name.I’ve heard it before, and thought someone said you had a big dog.” I thought that was really strange. But then the Lord has been reminding me of the moniker used for the Holy Spirit. And lately with what He’s been revealing to me, it’s all starting to make sense.

The other day, He reminded me of the primary reason He’s called me as Guardian of Souls. And everywhere I walk, I have the Hound of Heaven, with me. The Holy Spirit. He hunts people down. No one can bring me harm, nor harm to those who belong to my Lord. The Hound of Heaven literally pursues people to bring them to repentance.

The Lord loves all men, and His desire is to chase them down. He will do whatever it takes to bring them back from the brink of destruction. Men become insane with greed and lust. They do not know what they are doing, and the Hound of Heaven has a job. To sniff them out, and chase them down. To wear them down, until they can run no more.

Until they finally give up the chase and surrender. I have seen the criminals do this many times on the cop shows. The dogs, literally take them down. It’s sad, but they almost seem relieved. Sometimes this is what the Lord has to do to us.

Give up, while you still have time!

Chasing Shadows


Everything that I could learn packed into that ball

I just cannot believe my life. It seems that the past 5 years, has been about chasing nothing but shadows. I wondered at the things I was witnessing. Who were these guys? Were they the good guys or the bad guys?

I was so fearful and at times, I thought I knew what was happening, then I would just learn to live with the silliness of it all. I wondered, “Why do I have to notice this stuff? Why can’t I just be like most people and just totally unobservant?” But then again, My son is the one that would see a guy coming out from the side of my house. “Hey mom, what is that guy doing there? He’s got a phone truck with cones set up.

Yep, my son. He notices everything. I wouldn’t dare tell you about the other things he’s seen, or you’d think he’s crazy. One time he came home from school after my brother, he, and I had flown up to Wisconsin, on a trip, and he told me his teacher had asked him, “What’s up with your family?” In response to our family trip. The whole trip was supposed to involve me seeing an attorney, so I thought that was interesting.I mean a teacher, questioning a child in school elementary school?

Shadowy characters, appearing and disappearing. I would see people coming and going from my life, and almost thinking I was operating from a paranoid position.Doing things which made no sense.

At one point I asked a friend, “Who am I?” I felt as if people were watching me with interest. As if I had something they wanted. Well, what was it that I had?

Sure, I had experienced many things, and I had knowledge of a lot. But it seems that the Lord had me on what I would call, “a dry run,” for the last couple years.

In my situation, ignorance really is bliss. While all these people thought I knew what I didn’t know, I was terrified of something completely different, and much less threatening. The Lord certainly has a sense of humor.

Because in that time, He sharpened my sword and He showed me that I am “The head, and not the tail.” I am not to be afraid. If He has called me, then He has equipped me. And He has called me. Because it is His will to make me a voice for the less fortunate.To champion the cause of the meek.

Now I was remembering my experience at the charity Ball, I was at one night,at the beginning of all of this.Since it had so many spiritual signs for me. The name, Discovery was the most significant. I was only at the beginning of the quest for discovery. Yet, most of those hiding their deeds, had already thought I knew, so my favorite scripture applied perfectly. “The wicked flee though no man pursues, yet the righteous are as bold as a lion.”

After leaving the Ball, I had headed on the freeway in the wrong direction. The traffic got stuck and I literally sat on the freeway, all night long. I was in a long formal gown and freezing. I had a little jacket and the woman in the car across from me had a radio. She radioed ahead and found that a truck had jackknifed  across the lanes of traffic, cutting all of us off.

We sat for hours, until we were free. As I talked with her, I asked if I was going the right way. I was staying at my girlfriends house that night, and she said, “no, I was going the wrong direction.”

So, cold, tired and annoyed, at the thought of this whole experience, I had to ask what the spiritual meaning was. I was totally deflated by the time I arrived back to my friends house.As I had shared this with my friend, she told me in all her time living here, nothing like this had ever happened to her in her experience.

Shortly after, I went out on leave from work. I had all kinds of terrible experiences taking place at work and it would be just the beginning of a nightmare experience for me.

But, as I said, this was the dry run. I had come into contact with all kinds of people. I confronted the people and their bullying and started to pull down all the strongholds of lies.

After all of this time, I have realized that my wrong turn on that freeway was a spiritual picture of something much bigger. I had no idea how big.

The Lord placed a roadblock in my way to keep me from continuing in the wrong direction. This is His way of guiding me. “Lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path.”

He gave me a covering to keep me warm and someone to keep me posted. It was just enough to let me know He was close by.

Then He released me from the ‘holding pattern,’ in His time. He turned me around. And revealed everything which had been hidden. “And everything which is hidden will be disclosed.”

“Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.

The Simple Life


My brother is just so funny. I feel blessed to have him in my life. He makes me laugh so hard.  It’s wonderful for my mother to share this time with him too, since he had been living apart from her for many years.

I’ve noticed that he and the other people with special needs bring home beautiful pictures. The other day I was looking at this picture and I said, “Kevin, this is not yours. You’ve taken someone else’s picture by mistake.” He promptly picked up a pen and crossed out the other persons name and wrote his own name on the top! Then he said, “There you go.” As if life is just that easy. Take what you want. I wonder how many times he’s seen that done I thought. “Hmm,” I said. “He’d make a great attorney!”

My mother and I were laughing so hard at him. In his world forgery was nothing. If you like it, make it yours.

I looked at all of the artwork and started looking at the things in my home. I realized that life is just too short to collect things. The beauty of simple things that the artwork my brother produces, is better than anything one can purchase.

I sat in my living room and was sad when I noticed a small cardboard box which held the belongings which my mother was left with after being moved from her home. I took a picture. I cried to think this was so important to her.The Barbie dolls which she used to knit clothing for. No one could believe that she could do this and it was something that she took great pride in. The little Charlie Brown that plays music. The pictures. I managed to get the bronze shoes from my brother Dennis who had passed away as a baby. These she somehow never lost in all of her shuffling through the years. It is difficult to see my mother’s life reduced to a cardboard box. But then I look around and feel the weight of all the things in my life holding me down. I don’t want anything in my life. I can’t stand things holding me back from what is important. I hate greed and what it does to people. It hurts me to see what it has done. I don’t want to take care of things. Although I love looking at my brother’s pictures. And my mother’s things. It’s cute, but we all have the propensity to collect. So I want to bring joy to other’s by giving.

Now I got my mom into a pottery class to learn something new. She was making me laugh with her antics. When the teacher told her to “pinch her pot,” she said, “What?” “Yea, I said, “That meant something completely different in the 70’s!” Now she’s learning a different skill at 82 and she’ll be able to make new memories and so will I.

I realized that life is not about owning things. In fact the more time I spend with my mother, the more fleeting I see that our time is on this earth. I see that those who have robbed and tried to fill their lives with things, are missing the most important qualities.

My mother and I listened to my brother talking last night. He was telling us about the lipstick that he was going to give his girlfriend at school. He was going to put it in his purse. It’s really a fannypack. He crams all kinds of stuff into that purse. Sometimes I’ll check it just too unload some things. It’s so stuffed full. I just have to see what he’s carrying around and it’s funny. Pictures of things unrelated. I try to connect the subjects, but can’t seem to and move on. The objects make no sense,but they amuse me.

The keychains that I have given him have all found a place on this pack. I have actually had to remove some,because it has become unsafe. The weight of this is ridiculous. And the fact that one of them is a round basketball for coins, makes it hilarious with his gait and when he bowls, underhanded, my son made the remark that it’s a good thing I didn’t give him the bull’s you know what, to hang from this pack, or it would be quite a sight to behold, when he bends down to bowl! This visual just made me crack up.

He is very animated. And when he tells us that someone threw up at school it’s hilarious. He is over the top. I don’t think it happened the way he tells us and at times, I only wish I could place a hidden camera on him. There was one day that he told me that one person threw up and another girl was told that “she stinks and needed to go into the bathroom,” while the teacher was spraying the bathroom. And later, he said the same girl was his girlfriend. My son, who is not easily grossed out, said, “Come on, I don’t want to hear this! You’re girlfriend stinks!” And my brother as proud as could be, said, “Yes, she stinks! Right?” Wow! That’s unconditional love at it’s best! And, all I can say is, those special education teacher’s work very hard, and deserve pay raises!!! Treat them well. They’re very special people.

But,people like my brother are also very special and he keeps me centered. I sometimes find I’m taking him for granted and when I come back to him, I find humor in his simple words and beauty in the world around him. It is just what God was trying to point out to all of us and the reason He told us that “the meek would inherit the earth.”

Look at what a mess we have made of all of this. Greedy people have tried to use people like my brother for selfish gain. I’ve had people say, “They look at your brother like a throwaway.” That has brought me unspeakable pain.” Yes, even at his birth they thought he wouldn’t live. But God had a different plan. And his plans were to bring men to repentance through my brother. Yes, my brother who is so innocent. Who would take an art project and cross someones name and sign his name, would do this with anything. He knows no difference. He tells me everything costs “a hundred dollars.”

But who cares? My brother puts everything in perspective. Whether it a billion dollars or a penny, in his mind it’s the same price. Just as the value of a soul is worth more than everything. And as the Lord has said, “Woe to the man who gains the whole world, yet loses his own soul.”

Strange Visitations


What is going on? A UFO hovering over the Dome of the Rock? Oh wouldn’t everyone love to believe this is a hoax? Yes, and for decades, they were all hoaxes. And the ancient landing strips are also hoaxes. And the bible has spoken of the Nephilim, and Enoch and Elijah, were taken up in a whirlwind. And it was all a hoax. They were the only two, who did not see death. They will return in the end to be the witnesses to a callous world.

The “whirlwind,” by all accounts, would have been very similar to our present day description of a spacecraft. But then, this is just a hoax. People try to discount what they cannot understand, and what they are unwilling to believe. Aliens, are not aliens. But if we accept what the Lord has told us, then we must also accept the rest of His word.

Consider this portion of scripture; “One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them. The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it.” (Job 1:6)

We can see many examples in scripture of the free access allowed the fallen angels in the heavenly and earthly realm. There will come a time of the end, but this is when the total plan is complete. What we are witnessing is the increase of visitation, because of these events.

Remember the Lord had spoken of the signs and wonders, “in the heavens above and the earth below.” However, we have no idea, whom, or what this is about, until the Lord decides to reveal His almighty hand. And it really doesn’t matter to those of us with faith.

When Jesus Christ returns, He tells us His coming will be visible to all as far lightning in the East can be seen in the West. (Matthew 24:27) So do not be surprised by the things you see happening. The spiritual world is not invading. It has always existed and always shall exist. It is the material world which is slowly eroding.

Satan’s domain is being challenged, and he will be deposed. “He has bruised my Lord, but his head has been crushed!” He knows his time is short and his job is to recruit as many as God’s creation as he can to take with him to his final destruction. 

There have been many debates over the set of scriptures about the Nephilim. “When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.” (Genesis 6:1-3) “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days-and also afterward-when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them.” (v4)

I tend to believe that they were the fallen angels and daughters of men. But it is expressly noted that it was a demonic attempt to thwart God’s plan to bring redemption by the pure seed of Jesus Christ through the birth through the human race. However, Noah was found to be the righteous man, saved through water, a picture of baptism. And a whole lot of other symbolism

At any rate, we know that the plan of Satan’s to outwit his own creator, would have no way of working,, but it doesn’t stop him from trying. And it certainly wouldn’t keep him from his destruction and hatred. And it should be easy enough to spot who his followers are. Jesus spoke these words to the ones who claimed to be the very teachers of the law, “If you were Abraham’s children, then you would do the things that Abraham did. As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. You are doing the things your own father does.” (John 8:39-41) “Why is my language not clear to you?Because you are unable to hear what I say, You belong to your father the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell you the truth you do not believe me! (John 8:43-45)

The Lord has told us that they have gone out into this world. We know they are here. We are told to test the spirits. We know that not ever one of them comes from God. So, be vigilant. Even more so as the day of our Lord draws near!

Don’t be shaken by the strange encounters of the third, fourth or fifth kind. We are to Look up! Our redemption is near!!!!!
