Obama, ISIS, And The Western Church: The Capitulation Into Evil

The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Inspirational Christian Blogs

Seek ye the kindom of God

This is a long article, I apologize in advance for that but I hope you will be patient with me and read it all the way through, it is worth your time. I did not want it to be long, but there is much that needed to be said. I hope that this article blesses you and encourages you in Christ.

Reading the news these days it seems little good occurs in this world, of course that is not the case but this would be the general conclusion drawn by anyone reading about the goings on in today’s world.

Whatever happened to the family and values? Or decent entertainment that reflected those values instead of today’s shows that push the limits in every conceivable way and are used to convey a point – like sex outside marriage is totally cool and acceptable. Whatever happened to actually telling the truth instead…

Little Girl

Cyber Support Group

images[8]

I was a little girl 

at an innocent age,

Tormented by your sick 

and controlling rage.

*

You took my spirit,

my childhood,

and nearly my life,

Treated me not as your daughter,

but as your wife.

*

I needed attention,

but the kind you gave,

Turned me into

a prisoner

and made me a slave.

*

To protect my family,

I kept quiet and lied,

While everyday

a part of me died.

*

The little girl

went away,

she will never be found.

And this big girl

now stands on shaky ground.

*

The demons are chasing,

they’re closing in fast,

I’m starting to wonder

how long it will last.

*

Hurt and anger,

that’s all I feel.

Staying alive is a battle,

no longer a thrill.

*

Will there ever be peace

that I call my own?

Will there ever be a place

that I can call home?

UnGodly Soul Ties are Destructive

nc

search

What is the soul? The soul is our mind, will, and emotions. The Devil’s play ground.

What is a soul tie? A soul tie is an emotional bond or connection that unites us with someone else. We can become bound to a person through our soul. This can be done through generational sins that have been passed down through the generations, through vows we have made, and when we are close to someone or something. It can be a best friend, a pastor, our spouse, our children, a grandparent, relative, a celebrity, an abuser, and especially with every person we’ve had sex with. Even inanimate objects such as cars, jewelry, a house, money, etc.

Ungodly Soul ties can be formed with anyone or anything on a daily basis if we are not vigilant.

God creates Godly soul ties. Duet. 10:20 states, “You shall fear the Lord your God; you shall serve Him, and to Him you shall hold fast, and take oaths in His name.” The Lord tells us to love each other and to help each other. By loving someone, as Christ loves us, we are forming Godly soul ties.

Demons cause ungodly soul ties. “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” John 10:10  Ungodly soul ties can destroy us! They take hold in our mind, will, and emotions, and will destroy what Christ created; love, joy, and peace.

If we are consumed with bitterness and anger, we dwell on the past, feel rejected most of the time, and if we’re constantly meditating on any other person/s or thing/s, we’re probably tied to those people or things. Ungodly soul ties have been formed and need to be broken and severed.

Here are a few keys to knowing if Ungodly soul ties have been formed:

We have been, or are in:

* A controlling relationship.

* An abusive relationship. (Physical, sexual, emotionally, or verbally.)

* Adulterous affairs

* Sex before marriage

* Obsessive entanglements (obsessed with someone or something)

* The occult

It is important to repent, renounce, break, and severe all ungodly soul ties! Even with our spouse! “and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh.” Mark 10:8 Remember, ungodly soul ties are formed through sex. Within the marriage bed and outside the marriage bed. Both husband and wife need to renounce the ungodly soul ties they each harbor.

We are NOT renouncing and severing  GODLY soul ties. We are severing the ungodly soul ties. This brings us freedom to be more like who Christ wants us to be. If we renounce something that the Lord knows is not an ungodly soul tie, don’t worry. No harm has been done. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Ask the Lord to reveal to you the ungodly soul ties that have been formed. Write them down being very specific and renounce each one. Don’t be surprised if there are many. Then thank Him for the Godly soul ties.

Here is a sample prayer of renunciation:

Heavenly Father, I confess and repent of the sin of  (name the sin which caused the evil soul tie, such as adultery or fornication), and I ask that You forgive me of this sin.

(Now is a good time to destroy or get rid of any physical gifts or other objects that could hold the soul tie together, such as a gift given in adultery, etc. Anything that could hold the bond together between you and that person. It’s important to let go of those physical things/keepsakes.)

In the name of Jesus, and by the power of His blood, I now renounce, break and sever all ungodly soul ties formed between (name the person) and myself, through the sin of (name the sin which caused the evil soul tie). I thank You Lord for cleansing me of this sin.

I now command any evil spirits which have taken advantage of this ungodly soul tie to leave me now in Jesus name!

(Repeat this prayer if you have more than one evil soul tie to break.)

Unholy Vows is an Open Door

Cyber Support Group

imgres

An inner vow is a solemn promise we make to ourselves. Those vows lodge into our subconscious and although we may totally forget we made such a vow, it is there and will control parts of our attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.

As children, and even as adults, we make vows that start with “I will never.”  Usually it stems from hurt or pain. “I’ll never get married again!” “I’ll never be like my Dad!” These inner vows stem from a spirit of rejection and open the door to the enemy.

As a child being abused I learned that by crying it created great satisfaction to my abuser. Upon my realizing that fact the devil stepped through that open door and whispered, “Show her, don’t cry!” I immediately vowed, “No-one will ever see me cry again!” That not only shut the door to my true emotions but caused me more physical…

The Best Sermons are Lived, Not Preached

These are real life stories that teach us many things in life. They are based on true incidents both wonderful and inspirational.

1. Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile.”

2. Today, I asked my mentor – a very successful business man in his 70’s – what his top 3 tips are for success. He smiles and said, “Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking, and do something no one else is doing.”

3. Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center.”

4. Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.

5. Today at 7 AM, I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work. At 3 PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat, too. A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted, and then he offered me a job. I start tomorrow.

6. Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.”

7. Today, I kissed my Dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.

8. Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start recycling. I chuckled and asked, “Why?” She replied, “So you can help me save the planet.” I chuckled again and asked, “And why do you want to save the planet?” “Because that’s where I keep all my stuff,” she said.

9. Today, when I witnessed a 27 year old breast cancer patient laughing at her 2 year old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.

10. Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me. He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he said, “I hope you feel better soon.”

11. Today, I was feeling down because the results of a biopsy came back malignant. When I got home, I opened and e-mail that said, “Thinking of you today. If you need me, I’m a phone call away.” It was from a high school friend I hadn’t seen in 10 years.

12. Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe. He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating. The first thing the man said was, “We can share it.”

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Can Light Penetrate a Black Heart?

hearts_aglow_ii-72

My child sized heart pumped fiercely as I ran away. Fear filled me. I felt like the devil himself was close behind breathing down my neck. “If he catches me I’ll never survive.” I scream out, “Jesus save me” but He didn’t appear at my door. (I thought He would come to my house and save me from the abuse.)

That’s when the devil got his foothold. The anger at God for rejecting my plea intertwined with the fear. The roots of disappointment and a lack of understanding was transformed into a bitterness that grew deeper. With each injustice, betrayal, hurtful word, and rejection another black spot replaced what God created. Hatred filled spaces unknown within a normal pulsating heart that was created to love. Instead of the red blood of Christ filling a beautiful, pumping pink organ, the enemies blackness was trying to fill it to the brim.

Life continued with struggles and the bitterness against man and God continued to grow. God’s light would try to penetrate my darkening heart but with snarled lips and vehement words God was rejected. “If there’s a God then why……..?” “Don’t talk to me about this so-called loving God!” was spewed out from a heart filled with pain, rejection, bitterness, and a hatred so deep it seemed no light could penetrate. God would step in but the door was quickly slammed shut.

God is a persistent God! He never gives up pursuing the lost. He didn’t give up then and He hasn’t now. He continued to chase me down and at my lowest point was standing there to pick me up. I accepted Him and He taught me much. With much love and patience He began healing the heart wounds from all the years of hurt and betrayal and gradually I learned who I am in Him. The blackening of my heart began turning grey. Some of the black spots of evil dissipated. But with a news report I learned it was still filled with hatred. The roots of hatred and bitterness still ran deep. I desperately needed surgery! The kind only Christ can do.

God’s light broke through the darkness within a dream. In the dream the flames within the cage roared about the body of man while ISIS stood watching with vile, wicked grins and slapping each other on the back for a job well done, I screamed out, “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!” It wasn’t the man being burned alive, it was me! Just before I awoke, I glared at the evil men and said, “If Mohammed was here I would spit in his face!” I awoke suddenly with my chest filled so full of hatred that I thought I was having a heart attack.

The hatred grew within me until I thought my chest would burst. I prayed in English, I prayed in tongues, I asked God what was happening to me. At one point I felt I wanted to jump out of bed and scream at the top of my lungs. I didn’t because it would wake the whole subdivision. I couldn’t move. The chest pain continued until I thought my chest would explode right there in my bed. I prayed some more. I rebuked the devil to no avail.

Confusion swirled around in my head, “Was I feeling what Christ must feel?” I told the Lord I know He loves those people but, “Forgive me, I want them to suffer every scream, every cry for help, every pleading agonized breath and feel every pain that every person and every child felt, for all of eternity in hell!”

My chest grew, the hatred increased. It was vile, it was ugly. I could barely breath. I could taste the wickedness of it. I prayed some more. I cried out for understanding and even threw out the fact that Jesus got mad and threw tables around the Temple. “I can’t ask You to forgive them because You will if they ask, but they won’t!” And, “I won’t pray their heart be changed! They are Satan’s incarnates! That’s like transforming Satan’s heart! It ain’t going to happen!” My thoughts whirled around like a balloon skittering around a room when suddenly released of its air. One minute I was thinking like Jesus might want me to and the next I was lashing out with hatred.

I don’t know how long I spewed the vile hatred I felt for what is going on in this world. The evil that surrounds us all. I confessed, I quoted a couple of scriptures, I did everything I could to try to rationalize and try to understand what was happening to me. Had I not been wide awake I would have thought I was in the middle of a horrible nightmare.

Suddenly a thought dropped into the midst of all the praying, all the arguing and expounding on why I should hate these people,“You have hurt people, too.” That shut my mouth for a moment but then of course my first response was, “I haven’t chopped off anyone’s head! I’ve burned no-one alive! I’m not robbing and stealing and raping!” Then the realization took hold, I have hurt people with my words, some deliberately and some not. I have rejected others, and above all, I rejected God and His Son for many years.

The pain in my chest began to slowly dissipate as that realization took hold. A calming began to replace the pain of hatred. It seemed as though my chest was deflating slowly and as that realization of my own sin penetrated my heart I realized that maybe, just maybe, it was my heart that needed to be changed.

There was no glowing translucent light filling the room. No angels appeared in white robes. No heavenly choir songs rang out from heaven. There was only a hushed silence as I whispered, “Is it my heart that needs changing, Lord?” The pain suddenly vanished! I was left limp and exhausted.

Many of us have prayed, “Search my heart O’Lord.” He takes that seriously and in my case He used the evil of ISIS on a T.V. newscast to reveal the depth of hatred in my heart and not only to expose it and make me aware of its depth but to taste the vile bitterness of it. “Love the sinner, hate the sin.” I was hating the sinner as well as the sin.

We’ve all suffered pain of some sort. We all have areas of hurt. There are no pure hearts in humanity and He’s still working on mine. By His grace I am saved, not perfect.

“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.”

Ps. 139:23

“Reaching Out”

 tears-290x194

Written by Christine R. – Angels by Grace Pub. April 1998

I feel your pain

And long to touch your hurt

And make it melt away.

Yes, I know

I can’t really see

the breadth

and depth

of this dark valley you’re in.

*

I can’t truly know

just how sharp the knife is

in your soul –

for it is you in its path, 

not me.

But I have known other valleys,

and in my heart

still bear knife-wounds scars.

Even so

I would walk your road

and take your pain

if I could.

I cannot. 

*

And yet, perhaps

in some way

I can be a hand to hold

in the darkness;

in some way, try to blunt

the sharpness of pain.

But, if not

it may help a little

just to know I care.
