pardon the very personal question, but how old are you – both biologically and spiritually?
Where are you in your life?
Are you building your foundation still or living on it already?
Or have you even experienced that your foundation has drifted away right under your feet…?
Everything I had built, believed in and lived upon until my “midlife” has suddenly drifted away and apart under my very feet, I literally lost the ground under them.
Hopefully, this hasn’t ever happened to you…?
But if it has, what did you do?
How did you build yourself back up?
Do you even believe we can?
Me, I don’t and I didn’t.
It was only when I had nothing and no one, when none of my qualifications or assets or skills or knowledge or experience would help me, when everything I had ever known and done had failed me, that I discovered the help I had needed all along.
In a way, it was probably good that I had lost everything.
Not pleasant, but good – at least for someone like me. Someone who was full of themselves, someone who was so confident that they could master every storm and do it all by themselves- because had I not been fully convinced that I was completely at the end of my tether, I may not have surrendered to GOD.
Who then became my foundation – instead of all the sand I had piled up there…
I have since been shaken, tried and afflicted more than ever before…
But my house still stands.
Not like before.
There IS a part of me, my very core, which has become unshakable, unmovable, unimpressable, unscarable, unirritable, unintimidatable, unattackable, invincible.
And we all know that this is neither an exaggeration, nor pride speaking – not this time.
Because my strength is not of me and not from me, it is nothing I know or have learned or have done or even earned.
It is the GOD in me.
When I am in trouble or sad or desperate or angry or in need – I don’t try to solve my problems anymore.
And I don’t mean by that that I will only sit there and do nothing and cry – of course, most of the times, there is something I can do- but the point in that is, it shouldn’t be what I think I should do, but it can only work when it is what GOD tells me to do.
This is the difference which makes the difference.
My own thinking, knowledge and understanding is SO limited.
Only THE ONE who knows it all can tell me more than I could possibly know… if that makes sense?
So what I do is I get on my knees and I call on the only one who could bring me a solution – if it is HIS will.
And if HE doesn’t show me a solution, I know that a time of prayer and fasting has to begin now.
The revelations and guidance I have had since I knew GOD are nothing like the things I had seen or known before.
If you have read my testimony you will know that the enemy, too, has given me gifts, has shown me things… many people in the occult would be very jealous if I told them more about the “spiritual gifts” and epiphanies and sensations I had had before JESUS saved my soul.
But what these people don’t know is that none of this “stuff” (and I can only call it this since I have been shown THE TRUTH) has any true value, has any true power or any true meaning compared to what GOD gives to HIS children – they are just shenanigans…
I will give you an example:
if you were able to astral project – and for those of you who don’t know what this is, it is when satanists leave their bodies and travel to any place in their spirit – and could go anywhere you’d like, what would you do?
Would you spy on someone you fancy or on someone who has a lot of money to find out how you could steal it?
Or would you use this gift to save the world?
How could you possibly use this gift for something good?
Is this really a “power” you think?
And what do you think will happen before you can get it?
Do you think the devil will give it to you for free?
Will he demand any of what you have for it?
Is he going to want and demand you to worship him?
GOD on the other hand, look at the gifts HE gives.
Let’s look at the greatest one of them: salvation.
Nothing compares to this, now, don’t you agree?
All the agents can do about it is deny that hell and heaven exist.
Otherwise, if they were unable to plant any doubt about this in people’s minds, they wouldn’t stand a chance of even winning one single soul!
Ok let’s take another example – or try to see the pattern clearer:
the gift of healing for instance.
There you have a true superpower!
Can you imagine, people got well wherever JESUS went, and this has not changed one bit since 2000 years!
If you ask me what I believe the pattern is, it is not only about the difference between true and false gifts, also about the purpose of these gifts – the gifts of the enemy are to glorify men.
Just as the one who gives them – he wants to be worshipped and wants the world to acknowledge that he has power, so he will promise the same to those whom he “gifts” – these gifts will be for themselves, to feel more powerful.
You can take whatever example you like, witchcraft powers, astral projection, dream manipulation, psychic vision, (black) magic, fortune telling – none of these gifts can be used for good purposes and they are not helping anyone and only feeding the pride of the “owner” of the gift.
On the other hand, the gifts of GOD are gifts which can only be used for LIFE and for THE TRUTH.
They bring people out of bondage, restore health to them, encourage and edify them and glorify GOD, not the one who is using the gift GOD has given them.
I could go on and on friends.
There is nothing you could find when you compare both sides and both kingdoms which could lead to any other conclusion than this:
Only GOD has the truth and all the devil has is lies.
Only GOD is reliable, good, benevolent, generous, gracious, mercyfull and solid.
The devil is fake, sneaky, deceptive, a liar, mean and vicious and dodgy.
All you need to do is open your eyes.
We all get to (or have to) harvest what we reap.
Perhaps a life of sin is fun to begin with or for a short while, but will you like the fruit???
Perhaps seems wise to choose the house which is cheaper and easier to obtain, but will it stand????
Friends, I came to see that what the devil promises will not only never come to pass, but it will also cost you and cost you dearly to pursue it – and he will take all you have for a few moments of cheap thrills.
I am not saying this because I want to ruin your fun.
I am saying this because I have been there and I wish I had not.
My house collapsed, I lost everything.
It is my prayer that you will let GOD open your eyes and that you will not have to go through what I have been through, my friend.
I hope and pray that you will turn to GOD – much sooner than I have, to save yourself a lot of suffering and damage.
If you don’t know JESUS as your personal LORD and savior, you can give your life to HIM right now!
JESUS CHRIST came to earth as the SON OF GOD to save us all from the devil. And HIS works are still relevant today, HE is as alive today as he was more than 2000 years ago. And if you are not saved, HE wants to save you today, right here and right now: please don’t stay under the power of the king of darkness, please join us and give your life to THE LORD.
Here is an example of what you can pray in your heart right now, if you want to make JESUS LORD over your life:
“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.
If you have just prayed this prayer, you are now part of GOD’s kingdom and family and I heartily welcome you, my dear brother or sister!
The next thing to do is get a bible and find a church where you can receive further instructions, so that your new life in THE LORD may prosper and that you will become who HE made you to be.
GOD bless you and if you have any questions or need any assistance, please get in touch.
I hope and pray that this will inspire, encourage, heal and bless 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.
