can you remember the exact day when you were born again?
Do you recall what you did on that day, how it happened when JESUS came into your life and into your heart?
What was it like?
Where were you?
Of course, I know this, without you even telling me one single aspect of that experience: your life has never been the same ever since…
Just as mine hasn’t been.
It is such a life changing, significant experience that we will never, ever forget it, will we…
Let me tell you a little bit about mine (don’t know if I have already spoken about it, please forgive me if I did) – because the anniversary of my salvation is coming up next week!
And I literally consider this my (second, but much more significant) birthday as I was born again on that day and my old life was gone, past, overcome – and even though some of it has kept haunting me for a while or even until this day, it is still not the old “me” dealing with these things and living here on this earth, but a “new creature”, literally everything has become new…
And I cannot tell you how grateful I am.
For saving me.
Saving me out of the darkness I was walking in.
So what happened was, I had been infiltrated and infested by demonic and satanic, black magical “vibes” / energy / spells / demons / kundalini / spirits / telekinesis / astral projection / sex magic / New Age beliefs and methods / tantra / occultism / channelling / Tarot Cards / talking to “angels” and “ascended masters”/ witchcraft / shamanism…
Whatever you want to call it, any of the above and I probably even forgot some of them – I was practicing it or had tried it… and I had come under the influence of a “New Age guru” aka warlock, satanist – and his coven, and they had been trying to kill me for almost 4 years at the time…
I had been looking for help everywhere, all over the world, there was hardly any “energy healer” or whatnot that I hadn’t either tried or considered going there for a session, for freedom, for relief…
I was in deep despair.
I knew that something was completely wrong and somehow, I also knew that what I was doing to overcome these severe physical and emotional disturbances (and that’s a very mild expressions for them), it wasn’t working…
Most of the time, I was looking on the internet for answers, doing research on the symptoms I was experiencing, trying to find people who had had the same problem and researching what they had done to get out of this.
The good thing was, I very soon found that I wasn’t alone with my “issues”, that was a good confirmation that these phenomenons exist, but it took about 2 more years of TERROR, torture and horror, of literally going through hell until I found the one and only solution and remedy for these things:
It is probably hard to understand for those of you who have been Christians and have lived and walked with THE LORD all their lives… but it can be hard to find HIM, especially when the enemy doesn’t want you to!
These “circles” and sources of teachings and “wisdom”, they are so extremely good at leading you astray, they mix the truth with their lies so cleverly, it is really hard to look through them and I would even say it is not possible out of one’s own powers and efforts.
Me, I didn’t even KNOW that I was in demonic, satanic hands, I thought that what I was going through was actually COMING from GOD – that’s what they try to make you believe, that suffering is part of life and that you need to “suffer through” until your ego is dissolved, overcome – and part of it is true, that makes it so hard to find out that they are liars – I mean, it is true that you need to overcome the flesh, need to crucify it, and that the ego needs to die to some extend…. they mix everything with GOD’s truth and they have a fake copy for everything GOD has – except for THE PEACE OF CHRIST.
So what I am telling you is this: do not condemn or judge people involved in witchcraft and divination and idolatry, because it is very likely that they WANT to serve GOD or even believe they do, that they even believe they have more truth than you do, many of them have searched hard for the truth, have tried very hard to understand life and GOD and have most likely payed a lot of money to “improve themselves” – they just were deceived!
And they need you!
If I had known a Christian, a loving, patient one, not one of the self-righteous hypocrites you can find so many of in all the churches (the ones who would have put me off and whom I am glad I only met AFTER I came to The Lord!!!), one that would have loved me, would have inspired me, would have suggested GOD’s word in a manner I would have been able to accept – one like some pastors I have seen, loving, absolutely non-judgemental, just there… then, I would have probably found the truth sooner or easier – but the problem is when you are involved in the occult, you are not hanging around with the people who would be good for your salvation, on the contrary.
These people, lost souls, like me a few years ago, they cannot get out there by themselves.
And if they don’t come across a person, you, me, a brother or sister, who can pull them out of their darkness with the help of GOD, then, they need GOD HIMSELF to come and find them and get them…
HE can come HIMSELF or use other people – or combine the two…
That’s what HE did in my case.
I was researching on the internet, on youtube to be precise… I think I had come to a point when I realized that what was happening to could be called “astral attack”… and I was looking for teachings and speeches related to this topic.
And remember when you look something up on youtube and are watching a video and on the right hand side, there are suggestions for other videos you might be interested in watching, similar ones?
By the way, I think that is a trick of the devil to hook you more, to not let you leave this page, but in my case it was good, because I saw a man there and he caught my interest:
Many of you will know him, but for those of you who don’t, he is one of the leading voices in the deliverance field, even though he has gone to be with The Lord more than 15 years ago, his teachings and sermons and books on the topic are still up to date and they must have been groundbreaking when they came out!
If you have problems with demons or witchcraft, his books and sermons will help you!
So I clicked on it…
And it was a teaching about how to get rid of demons.
As I was watching it, it occurred to me that THIS was exactly what had been happening to me for almost 4 years at the time.
In the end of the teaching, he offered to pray for the people in the audience – and he asked them to stand up if they wanted prayer.
Automatically, where I was, in my room, in front of my laptop, I stood to my feet and prayed along – and in this very moment, something left me and I felt a peace like never before in my life.
THE PEACE OF CHRIST.
PRAISE THE LORD!
And I can’t lie to you, my life has not been happy, shiny, lovey-dovey and easy from that moment on.
I would even say that some of the warfare only really STARTED at that point. Today, I know why that is: the devil never, ever wants to loose a soul he once had in his filthy claws… and all those so called “angels” and “spirit guides” and “teachers”, they show their true colors and become really nasty once they realize that you are aware that they are fake and want to leave them and get rid of them….
But it is true that everything has become new.
I wouldn’t even recognize myself anymore if I had known me before and now…
And I thank GOD for coming into my life, for saving me out of these lies, out of these dead-end-streets that never lead anywhere except into deeper darkness…
My prayer is that HE will use me and use this blog to help more people find HIM and find the truth, find a way out of all this!
Like I said, it hasn’t been easy since… and I am not complaining, only being honest… because all the wonders I have seen, the things HE brought me out of – I can’t even tell it all…
It is a new life indeed.
My dear friend, if you haven’t been born again, have not truly had a REAL experience of JESUS coming into your life, into your heart – it might as well be you have been going to church all your life, that’s not what I am talking about! – you can ask HIM to come right now and become LORD over your life as well!
You don’t have to, but you can even use these words if you wish and pray them out loud right now:
“Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge and confess that I have not lived my life for YOU to this day, but have been living for myself and in sin and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins just as I forgive others. I need YOU in my life; I want YOU in my life.
I recognize the completed work of YOUR only begotten Son JESUS CHRIST in giving HIS life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart JESUS is LORD and that HE was raised from the dead and ask for YOUR forgiveness, which YOU have made freely available to me through this sacrifice.
Come into my life now, LORD!
Take up residence in my heart and be my KING, my LORD, and my SAVIOUR!
From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow YOU all the days of my life. Those days are in YOUR hands.
I ask this Jesus name.
I will be celebrating my birthday as a Christian next week… I will do something special with and for THE LORD and I will praise HIM and thank HIM on that day – not that I don’t do that every day, but in a special day, just like you would be extra attentive on the day when your beloved celebrates their birthday or on the day when you got married – only that it is my birthday, the second kind of birth HE granted me – and I owe it ALL to HIM.
THANK YOU JESUS!
Dear friends, I am curious – do you celebrate the day when you were born again?
If you do, do you have a ritual or something special you do to give thanks?
I hope and pray that this will bless, inspire and heal you. And that THE LORD will bless you abundantly in all areas of your life. That HE will keep you and shine HIS face upon you and bring you peace. In JESUS’ name I pray. AMEN.
