EVIL EXISTS WHETHER YOU BELIEVE IT OR NOT

Standard

(Ephesians 6:12-13) For we wrestle not against blood and flesh, but against principalities, against the powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against the wicked spiritual wickedness in high places. If the fight isn’t against flesh and blood, it means it’s spiritual.

The Bible tells us these things will happen. If you don’t believe or you’re not in the Word, you won’t understand what’s happening. What I’ve found to be true is the fact that the world doesn’t want to touch on the subject of EVIL. People don’t want to touch on the subject of the supernatural realm. These things are scary to many people or people don’t believe it exists. It does and it’s just as alive as you are breathing. We are constantly fighting against these things.

Things are trying to trip us up at every turn. If we stand firm in full armor we can withstand anything. Evil exist through spiritual warfare that is constantly attacking us. It attacks us as individuals, but it comes in many forms. I believe because people don’t understand what is happening many will fall prey. It affects both the body and the mind. This is why you see parents killing their children, children killing their parents, people molesting their own children and other people, people killing for no apparent reason, suicidal victims, and all of the other horrific things we hear about. It causes people to be trapped by their own minds in unhealthy states of mind. They are depressed, drowned in alcoholism and drugs, doing nasty filthy sexual acts, trapped by their minds in memories of their pasts, unfaithful, liars, and doing all kinds of immoral things that are against God. It is only going to continue whether people understand or believe it’s happening or not.

It doesn’t happen to only some people; we all experience it because we’re all fighting a spiritual battle between good and evil. People are afraid to talk about what is happening; fear of being ridiculed . Although many are confused about it or engulfed by darkness; many will keep it to themselves until they’re driven to the edge and eventually over.

I believe if a person don’t truly know God and have a daily relationship with God this warfare can push them to the brinks of destruction. I’m so thankful for all of my experiences. I know the spiritual world is alive and well. If it weren’t for me knowing what side I’m on, developing a real relationship with God, and connecting with Him on a daily basis I probably wouldn’t be here today. If it wasn’t for the fact that I understood that His love conquers ALL fear, I probably wouldn’t be here today. If I didn’t understand in whom my strength lies, I probably wouldn’t be here today. When I was physically alone, I realized that I wasn’t alone. I knew God had me covered, it is what kept me and brought me through unscathed and strong as ever. I had to completely rely on God, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I was strengthened where I was weak and built up where I was torn down. He gave me the ability to see things through my spiritual eyes and not natural.

When you speak or write about these things, people think you’re completely nuts. It’s okay! This is the norm for those who don’t understand or believe spiritual warfare and God exists. They think things happen by chance when NOTHING happens by chance. Many shrug their shoulders and shake it off until the next thing happens. People struggle daily with the affects this warfare has on them and others.

If no one is exempt (and no one is); think about the affect it can have on people of this whole world today. Millions and millions don’t have a clue as to what they’re dealing with and why they’re dealing with it. All I’m asking is for you to get educated. It cost you nothing to sit and get educated. ThereĀ are tons and tons of information available free of charge. You have a choice to whom you will serve. Of course I will always recommend God and His Son Jesus, but you have the choice to choose whom you will serve. Regardless of your choice; get educated about the spiritual realm, which involves both good and evil.

Evil exists and it’s seen when we see people doing the unthinkable. Reality of its existence is seen every single day. The world wants to always call it mental illness. They NEVER want to say anything about evil, spiritual darkness, spiritual realm, paranormal, etc. They label everything as mental illness. IT IS NOT! Millions do suffer from mental illnesses, but it’s not always something passed down. It’s often the result of this spiritual warfare. The affects causes people to have the characteristics of mental illness. People not only question their sanity, they also question the sanity of people like me who speak about it. Well I assure you I’m sane. I’m covered under the Blood of Jesus. I’m only here trying to help someone.

People don’t want to entertain this subject. They want to dismiss it or ignore it altogether. The world will tackle science and medicine; which are two things they will NEVER know everything about. Yet they’re too afraid to deal with the supernatural world that is alive around us.

Many don’t don’t believe in God, because to them they can’t see, feel, or touch Him. Therefore in their eyes if He’s not tangible; to them it means He’s not real. I assure you He yet lives! He can be seen and He is tangible through His wondrous works and His Holy Spirit. However, if a person don’t believe then they won’t receive it and therefore cannot see it. This is why many are lost and losing the spiritual warfare battle. A battle that has really already been won, if we believe!!! God’s death on the cross was for all of the transgressions that exists today. A person can’t understand if they don’t understand the Creation and the Creator.

WHEN THE ONE YOU LOVE WALKS OUT

Standard

One thing I’ve learned in life is you can’t put your everything into another person. What I mean is this. There are many women who are in relationships where they have relinquished everything to the man they love. When I write everything it’s exactly what I mean. These women allow their men to run and control every aspect of their lives and relationships.

Many completely rely on their men (husbands). These women basically have lost touch with who they are as women. The only thing they do is keep the house up and take care of any children they may have. They don’t know anything about the finances, health or life insurance, bills, etc. Some of the women think they’re in control but in reality they’re not and it’s proven when the one they love walks away.

These women find themselves in places they never thought they would be. They lost touch with daily living and because of it they don’t know how to do the most simple things. Many find themselves completely broken and close to nervous breakdowns. They’re sad, crying, and depressed. They can’t seem to pick of the pieces and move on.

I’m not saying a couple shouldn’t love one another and be in love. What I’m saying is no one is worth you losing yourself over; forgetting who you are and completely letting someone else take over YOUR life. Your life isn’t for anyone else to take over.

Unfortunately people get too comfortable in their relationships especially some women. These women begin to totally depend on their men for security. As long as they feel safe and secure they don’t try to stand as individuals in their relationships. Some think they have it together because they have a roof over their heads, food to eat, and clothes to wear. After they’re left alone they realize just how little control they had.

I’ve always said and will always say there are always signs of any and everything. Anyone who says “there were no signs” is a person who doesn’t face the truth. There are always signs, but people allow their feelings and emotions to block them from seeing these signs UNTIL it’s too late. This doesn’t have to be the case for anyone if people face reality and the truth as it presents itself. Believe me, it will at some point present itself and it doesn’t take long. People choose to be oblivious.

Life goes on! If you love someone and they walk away from you most times it’s to be with someone else. If this is the case move on. Pick up the pieces and move on. I don’t care how long you’ve been with someone if that person no longer wants to be with you don’t sit around crying your eyes out day in and day out. Don’t fall into depression and dark places over someone who doesn’t want to be with you. It’s senseless. Stop devaluing yourselves!

Life goes on whether you choose to move with it or not. Never forget you’re an individual. You can love a person without allowing them to completely take over and run your life. Always stand on your own two feet because they are yours to stand on. If you act powerless it’s exactly how you will be treated. If you act weak and insecure, it’s how you will be treated. If you’re clueless you will live to regret it. If you allow someone to treat you any kind of way, believe me; after figuring you out any way THEY choose is exactly how you will be treated. Why? It’s because they know they can get away with it.

There are men who are in this situation as well and the same goes for them. When you love someone people learn exactly how they can treat you by your actions towards them. It shouldn’t ever be all about how you feel and treat the other person. It also has to be about how they feel about you and how they treat you. Too many are so focused on being all they can possibly be to the other person; when all the other person is doing is taking what is given, yet giving NOTHING in return. Some individuals make their everything about the person they’re with; totally forgetting about what they want and need. It’s why so many relationships are sexless, loveless, together but separate, and simply unhealthy period. One is in it all the way while the other isn’t even half way in. You can’t see it until it’s too late, if you’re blind to the truth!

STOP ALLOWING OTHERS TO BLOCK YOUR PROGRESS

Standard

Many of you must stop allowing people to block your progress. When a person allows others to limit them to a point where they’re unable to show their true potential this is a problem. A person who allows this has some issues they need to face such as a lack of confidence and self esteem. Stop being afraid. Stop standing in the shadow of others. God has given us all gifts and talents. No one can have yours and you can’t have another person’s.

Stop being afraid to step out. Stop being afraid to dream and move towards your goals. People try to limit you for many reasons such as jealousy, envy, sad, unhappy, depressed etc about their own lives. They see something in you and they’re afraid of what you may accomplish. They will try to make you think what you want is unattainable. They will say discouraging things, they will act disinterested, and oftentimes they’re unsupportive. Don’t lose sight of your dreams!

There are also those who are afraid of letting go. They try to keep you at a place you really don’t want to be so that you can remain in arm’s reach. This can sometimes kill your ambition. Don’t let people do this to you. Just as a person who allows this to happen has issues, any person who tries to block another person’s progress has issues else well.

There are many situations where people don’t show their true abilities and potential. They know they’re being hated on for whatever reason, so they try to remain low key. Stop it! Don’t let no one prevent you from giving your all every chance you get. Don’t continue to stand in the shadows. Step out and let your light shine!

IGNORING YOUR MARITAL ISSUES WON’T FIX THEM

Standard

There are people who are in relationships they don’t necessarily want to be in. However, because they don’t try to work on their problems they remain in unhappy places. One thing that gets to me is when a person is clearly unhappy, but he or she make 100 excuses for why they remain where they are.

A lot of people feel they’ve invested too much time to move on; despite of how miserable they are. They feel they must ride it out until the end. I believe wholeheartedly many people are together but they weren’t put together by God. They’re together of their own doings and God had nothing to do with it. I further believe that when relationships are put together by God people won’t struggle so much in them. I’m not saying people won’t have some issues, they will, but when they’re constantly struggling and doing so for years and years, something is wrong! The problem with many relationships is they start off wrong, yet people try to make them work. Occasional they do but most times they don’t. The relationships are in constant chaos.

There are many people who can’t work things out at home, because they’re not trying. They’ve gotten too complacent. They aren’t necessarily content with the way things are but they’ve settled without trying to make things better. People get used to old ways without ever trying to change them; not realizing how much further apart it makes them. He’s stuck on how he feels and what he wants and she’s doing the same without trying to come together. They live under the same roof, but a million miles apart. This isn’t a marriage.

If you’re in a relationship and there’s absolutely no intimacy something is wrong. If you’re in a relationship and your mate don’t know how to talk to you without being brutally rude, something is wrong. If you’re in a relationship and it’s completely sexless yet there’s no health issues contributing to it, something is wrong. If you’re in a relationship yet you don’t know how to effectively communicate, something is wrong. If you’re in a relationship and you’re not on the same accord, something is wrong. If you’re in a relationship and you sleep apart, because you don’t want to be in the same bed, something is wrong. If you’re in a relationship and there’s mental, verbal, physical, or emotional abuse going on, something is wrong. There are MANY forms of abuse outside of physical, but many people tend to overlook that fact.

I could go on with many other examples, but you all know your situations. Many women although unhappy they stay out of a false sense of security. Their men provide a roof over their heads and does little things for them here and there. Although unfulfilled it’s enough to suffice these women. These women suffer silently because they’re not receiving what they need as women. They have no intimacy, they’re mates aren’t in love with them, and some don’t love them period. These women are afraid to be alone, they’re afraid to have to start over, and most importantly they’re afraid of losing the security of having a roof over there heads, food, clothing, etc.

Men stay and provide these types of security yet they’re just a miserable inside. Many stay for the exact same reasons as the women. They feel they’ve been there too long and have invested too much to leave. They don’t want to be alone and certainly don’t want to start over. Despite how unhappy both are no one is trying to fix anything. They simply settle with the way it is. This is nonsense!

I pray every single relationship peace, love, and happiness. The truth is, everyone together isn’t meant to be together and wasn’t put together by God. However, if people are going to stay together then they should at least try to make their situations better. No one has to live in misery. It’s all a personal choice. A husband and wife should love one another and be in love; point blank! If they’re not; there’s a problem. A big problem that needs to be fixed!

Instead of people looking to the streets for what they don’t have at home, they must learn to fix what’s at home, especially if they’re going to remain. Instead of turning to other things (drugs, alcohol, etc), lean how to come together and talk out your problems. Be honest with one another in order to get to the core of what’s really going on. I’m not saying people should separate or divorce, but what I am saying is if you’re going to stay together you can’t fix your relationships if you don’t try. You can’t fix them by getting involved with other women or men. You can’t fix them by turning to other people or things to give you what you’re lacking at home.

TRADITIONS CAN STUNT YOUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Standard

I’ve wrote a little on this before, but I will write a little more in depth about it. In today’s sanctuaries people are seriously missing the mark. I won’t say Christians, because we all know there are many who have a “form of Godliness,” but are living something opposite. People use the term Christian like they use I Love You. They profess it but their actions say something else. There are many who go to church strictly out of tradition. People must get it together, because this form of tradition will not save you or get you a seat in the Kingdom. If people want to one day see Jesus, they must be born again and live their lives holy and acceptable unto God.

People go to church faithfully. Some work in their churches while others just go faithfully. They’re faithful to their choirs, paying tithes, honoring the leaders, etc. etc. However, their relationships with God is nonexistent. I know people get tired of hearing me talk about it, but it’s my duty to write about it and speak about it. Going to church out of tradition stunts people’s spiritual growth. A person won’t progress and grow spiritually if they don’t get a personal relationship with Jesus. “The only way to the Father is through the Son.”

Many are so wrapped up in what man thinks of them. They don’t want to miss a service, because they’re going out of tradition and to be pleasing to man. They feel it’s the right thing to do and they feel obligated. Yet they live something else. They’re holy on Sunday, but don’t give God any time on other days. Actually they’re not giving Him time on Sunday, they’re giving it to the Pastors of their churches. It is their leaders they praise and worship. They have put on forms of Godliness, because it’s acceptable by man, but it’s not acceptable by or to God.

There is so much evil going on in this world. People are committing horrible acts (killing their children, children are killing their parents, killing family members, and others) over meaningless things. The value of life means nothing to many. People are seeing signs in the skies and experiencing supernatural things, yet they don’t understand what it means. They want to come up with logical reasons, without understanding the Bible speaks of these things happening. There is a lot worse to come. In other words the Bible is being fulfilled. Yet, it’s still not enough for people to change their ways.

I pray no soul is lost. It’s each individual’s choice as to where they choose to live eternity. People do what they do because they don’t believe God is real. If they truly believed they would live differently. It’s sad, because many will lose their souls on that great day. I pray that it won’t be you. Please understand your faithfulness of attending church will not do. People must get out of their in-grained traditions and get personal relationships with our Creator and then begin to live a holy life before their chances come to an end. Not wanting to give up this mean ole nasty world is going to cause many to spend eternity in hell.

I know a lot of people get tired of hearing about Jesus, but IF you do it’s because you’re not where you need to be in Him or you don’t know Him at all. I will share with the world until I leave this world.

LEARNING TO WAIT ON LOVE

Standard

There are many people who constantly find themselves in the exact same types of relationships. I know many who have broken up with significant others only to go right back into other bad relationships. You won’t ever change your situation without making the decision to change you. You will continue to ride the merry-go-round you have created for yourself. The reason many people have the tendency to this is because they don’t learn from previous bad decisions. They still have maturing to do.

A person who doesn’t take time in between break-ups to be alone, is someone who doesn’t have a clue about love. These types of people have problems with being alone. Instead of being alone they’d rather jump into other bad relationships. They try and try to make it work, but it doesn’t. There’s constant chaos. This isn’t love. You’ll never make a change until you acknowledge that a change needs to be made. These types of people are desperately seeking love, when they don’t understand love at all.

If you’re this type of person, it’s time you learn who you are as an individual. Work on you! You’ll never be in a happy relationship, because you’re not happy with yourself. You’re looking for something in someone that you yourself don’t have. You keep getting involved with people who are often as messed up and confused about life as you are and it’s why you’re constantly in and out of bad relationships. You’re always being lead by your emotions; which causes you to ONLY see what you want to see.

First learn how to love yourself. If you TRULY love yourself you will be very careful as to who you allow in your life. You won’t be so eager and desperate to find love. When it’s time, love will find you. If you’re always getting caught up in emotions over the first person you meet you won’t ever experience real love.

Step back and look at your life. If you’re in the same place as a year or more ago and you’re STILL unhappy; that’s a RED FLAG. Your life is like a revolving door. Around and around you go. You’re doing the same things and you’re doing it the exact same way! Can’t you see this is true? Abort the mission to find love until you can first love yourself and understand what love is and what it is not. Knowing who you are and loving yourself empowers you with the capability to understand love, know how to give, and know how to receive love.

You start by making the decision to change you!
