I first came to the knowledge of the truth of Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible only a few years ago.
For years I had searched for understanding and knowledge of spiritual things through new age spiritual teachings
and experimenting with psychedelic drugs. They always lead me to a dead end with no real solid answers
to the questions I had. Such questions as is there life after death? Do we have souls? Were we created or is this
all a random chance? Where do we go when we die, if anywhere? Thankfully God had a plan for me and one day it all
clicked and I was able to connect all the dots.
Everything that had happened in my life from my childhood to now. All the false spiritual paths I tested. All the
mystical psychedelic drug experiences. All the bad and good times. All my relationships. Everything became clear for
what they really were.
I realized that I am in the middle of a war. And that every one of us is deeply involved. A war for our souls.
There are three types of people in this war. Those that follow Jesus Christ in obedience and faith. Those that follow
Satan in obedience to him. And those that are ignorant of what world they are living in, sheep without a shepherd,
having no clue of the danger their souls are in, just mindlessly going on not caring for spiritual things
or where they are going to end up after this short life.
God began to show me that I was surrounded by people who chose this world and the temporary pleasures of sin.
That the majority of the world had given themselves to Satan. I found out everyone in my family had chosen
Satan and this world. I found out my girlfriend of two or three years was one of Satan's. That she was only with
me to deceive and distract me from what mattered, from the salvation of my soul. Though they are required to act and say
that they have no idea what you're talking about. Yea, that's how real this war is.
Satan will set you up with one of his people and they will pretend to like you, date you, even marry and have kids
with you if it means taking your soul to hell with them. Thankfully I didn't get her pregnant. But God has shown
me a woman that I grew up with, friends of the family, that her husband is one of the wicked and targeted her since
high school. Those that deny Satan and his kingdom are marked.
I realized that every word of God was true and that Satan and his people use it to make war with us.
If God says that flattering someone is bad. Guess what, the wicked will flatter you. Why? Because flattery
plants the seed of pride. If God says to not be drunken on alcohol. Guess what, the wicked get drunk on alcohol
and will try to get you drunk as well. Getting drunk on alcohol is a good way to let demons control you.
If God says fornication, sodomy, and adultery is bad? Yup you got it, the wicked will try to get you to do these too.
Which brings me to my demon. A demon is a fallen angel. Satan is the leader of the fallen angels. Satan was one of
the highest ranking angels in Heaven before iniquity was found in him and he was cast down to earth.
When we commit sin we give demons power over us. Sexual sins like fornication are a surefire way to let a demon
into your body. I didn't realize I had a demon in me until I came to the knowledge of Jesus Christ and started to obey God
and His commandments in His word. In the first couple of months of beginning to obey Jesus I overcame my sexual lusts and God
shew unto me a vision in a dream that He was casting out a demon from me through the cross of Christ. It was a very vivid and
real dream. In the dream I was holding a flaming cross and making the demon flee. It is only through Jesus Christ
that we are able to overcome the lusts of this world and to be freed from the control of demons.
Demons are very powerful beings. When we give them influence over us through sin they are able to tempt us. They are able
to put thoughts in our heads as if they were our own. Not to say our hearts are not desperately wicked themselves.
"Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life."
Overcoming the lusts of sexual perversions was the hardest thing I've had to do in my life
as it had such a great influence over me. By truly wanting to overcome it & and asking God for help I was able to thankfully! Eventually
Jesus Christ (who is God) cleansed me from the filthy shame of my sins after He knew I would no longer commit them.
It is not an easy path to overcome this world and the lusts of it. But if you care about not ending up in Hell, you will do whatever it takes.
We don't have much time before major end time events (nukes/war) take place.
So get in the word of God and read and do God's commandments for your own sake.
Hopefully some of you can relate to my story. Thank you for reading.
"I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? But I
have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!
Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
for from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two
against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the
father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the
mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law."
