    Why I don't celebrate Halloween...this is a good one about the demons on little kids and big-time ministers who didn't serve Jesus and are in hell. Serious stuff. You can check out more of His stuff if you want.

    I don't share too much from 'trips to heaven' videos but this one is more or less Biblical enough...and I've seen and experienced the demonic for myself. 'Chew the meat, spit out the bones' for yourself.



    Here's the full link on the demonic and Hell referenced in the previous video...more or less Biblical.

    EVERYTHING about this is BEAUTIFUL...I want to share this again. A man of God teaching a VALUABLE lesson to His son. For 'REAL KIND SPIRITS' (LAMBS) out there...JESUS knew WHEN to bring out the LION [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    OVERLY-PASSIVE Christianity was not the GOSPEL! Satan will destroy you if you think being 'loving' is just being the secular world's punching bag. No one ever changed an unbelieving world by allowing it to trample them underfoot.

    'You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its savor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men' Matthew 5:13

    I love this representation. The CRUCIFIXION of Christ came BEFORE the RESURRECTION of Christ. I'm convinced many believers are unfamiliar (or just plain ignorant) of what it means to be 'spiritually strong' ('spiritually mature' - Philippians 3:12-16)...it's the end result of crucifying your flesh. It has NOTHING to do with your CHRONOLOGICAL AGE...this is why there are 8-year olds casting out demons but some 70-year-old Pastor's with doctoral degrees don't even believe in tongues.

    Some people have had everything handed to them their entire life...and some have not (Ecclesiastes 2:18-26). Everyone continues to run the race...this is why it's so hard for RICH people to have a part in the Kingdom of God, they are already content with worldly material things and pleasures...they do not realize they are spiritually impoverished and lack the strength of Character required to be a disciple.

    'You say, ‘I am rich; I have grown wealthy and need nothing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, white garments so that you may be clothed and your shameful nakedness not exposed, and salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Those I love, I rebuke and discipline. Therefore be earnest and repent' Revelations 3:17-19

    'And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and with people' Luke 2:52.

    'The child grew up and became spiritually strong, and he was in the wilderness until the day of his public appearance to Israel' Luke 1:80 (CSB - John the Baptist).

    'Now we have this treasure in clay jars, so that this extraordinary power may be from God and not from us. We are afflicted in every way but not crushed; we are perplexed but not in despair; we are persecuted but not abandoned; we are struck down but not destroyed. We always carry the death of Jesus in our body, so that the life of Jesus may also be displayed in our body. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’s sake, so that Jesus’s life may also be displayed in our mortal flesh.

    So then, death is at work in us, but life in you. And since we have the same spirit of faith in keeping with what is written, I believed, therefore I spoke, we also believe, and therefore speak. For we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you. Indeed, everything is for your benefit so that, as grace extends through more and more people, it may cause thanksgiving to increase to the glory of God.

    Therefore we do not give up. Even though our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day. For our momentary light affliction is producing for us an absolutely incomparable eternal weight of glory. So we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal' 2 Corinthians 4:7-18 (CSB)

    About 2 years ago when I really started to search for God (aside from 'praying a little prayer' at the age of 5) I realized just how lost I had been. No one told me that my sin addictions were actually killing me physically and mentally every day. It was all about 'love'...that I should 'just be myself' and it was 'grace'...even though that twisted definition of grace was the reason I was afflicted by demons every day.

    I was shown the reality of demons, evil spirits and how they can influence our lives daily....also the devil physically manifested at the foot of my bed (as a dark shadowy man). I was told I had authority over these things but...they were still afflicting me as a believer. [​IMG]

    So I realized that from my perspective (while I was being cheated out of thousands of dollars and forgiving it)...the 'hyper-grace' preachers never mentioned how to deal with 'the brother who sins against you'...the Lord told me 'sin will always find you out in the end'...so I've always relied on God to deal with the people in my past that have wronged me so horrifically time and time again...according to His Word, not that I wanted it but His Word does not return to Him void. (Isaiah 55:11, Romans 12:14-21, Proverbs 25:21-28).

    I've seen how people's sin (even in ignorance) always catches up to them. I've never had to feel the need to 'avenge myself' because we really only reap what we've been sowing (Galatians 6:6-10).

    “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea“ Mark 9:42

    I've always been fascinated by this passage. I realized that the 'eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth' passage was never abolished. It was simply replaced by agape love and holiness for the believer who is truly in Christ.

    For the unbeliever who is not truly in Christ...the 'eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth' principle is still in effect (spiritually speaking). This idea that 'unconditional love' and 'forgiveness' means we can do whatever and not be disciplined for it is not true (Hebrews 12:4-12, James 1:13-15, Romans 6:23).

    'Remember, the sins of some people are obvious, leading them to certain judgment. But there are others whose sins will not be revealed until later' 1 Timothy 5:24

    Of all the people that have wronged me the most and I forgave it completely...not holding it against them...none of them are doing well right now. My firm belief is that the Law is still in full effect, it just doesn't influence people who are truly in the Faith (OBEDIENCE to CHRIST) 1 Timothy 1:3-11, Matthew 5:17-20.

    So you can't sell me this 'anti-dualistic' teaching or 'anti-dualism' theology. Just because I believe something hard enough...doesn't change God's Word and how it is actively being carried out on a daily basis. I believe in the 'TREE of the KNOWLEDGE of GOOD and EVIL' I just don't eat from it. I eat from the 'TREE of LIFE' (Christ - John 15).

    Same HOLY SPIRIT/GHOST POWER that HEALS PEOPLE ALSO CASTS OUT DEMONS/DEVILS...let THE CHURCH stop PICKING and CHOOSING the miracles that are 'of God' and the ones that are 'not of God'...BEFORE seeing the END RESULT (hasty emotionalistic judgements on what is 'loving' and what is 'unloving'). A bad spot to be...saying the same things about the power of God that the PHARISEES (poster children for hypocrisy) were saying to JESUS.

    'Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.”

    But JESUS KNEW THEIR THOUGHTS, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.

    If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?

    And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, BY WHOM do YOUR SONS cast them out? Therefore THEY shall be YOUR JUDGES.

    But if I CAST OUT DEMONS BY the SPIRIT OF GOD, SURELY the KINGDOM of GOD has COME UPON YOU.

    Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house.

    He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.

    Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come' Matthew 12:24-32 (NKJV)

    It is just another branch of 'religious' dogma to deny the power of God which manifests in the casting out of demons...we need real discerning of spirits in this Kingdom Age.

    Too many are calling good, evil and evil, good. Healing is a good gift from the Father and authentic deliverance (authentic casting out of demons) is a good gift from the Father of lights (the children's bread Matthew 15:21-28)....authentic deliverance always brings the fruits of the Spirit too.

    'But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, HAVING A FORM of godliness but DENYING ITS POWER. And from such people turn away!

    For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.' 2 Timothy 3:1-9 (NKJV)

    This is why I can only recommend KJV, AMP, NKJV, and AMPC (maybe NLT, CSB, HCSB and a few more word-for-word translations...I cross-reference many translations but these are a reputable list). All the newer(est) translations...should be scrutinized. They are more skewed toward thought-for-thought.

    Not only can poor Bible translations/transliterations hinder spiritual growth...it is dishonest (and damnable, why would anyone do it or want to do it?) to add to or take away words from the Bible. 'But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.'

    Revelation 22:19, Proverbs 30:5-6, Deuteronomy 12:32, Deuteronomy 4:2, Matthew 5:17-20, John 12:37-50, Matthew 24:32-35, and 2 Corinthians 4:1-6 provide plenty of Biblical support for presenting information with integrity...I suppose not everyone is as dishonest as the Roman Catholic Church/Jesuit Freemasons.

    Yes to everything (especially about the drunk's honesty, it's their heart crying out from the convictions of their conscience).

    Sound Biblical Truth on a seared conscience. The truth about pornography and homosexuality...the attack on real love and truth. True REPENTANCE to God through the Gospel of JESUS CHRISTmakes all things BRAND NEW...great grace. [​IMG]

    'And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent' Acts 17:30 (KJV)

    'New Age is a No-No!'...

    if you're interested in a different perspective. 'Chew the meat and spit out the bones'...according to BIBLICAL TRUTH and the HOLY SPIRIT.

    This is worth sharing...because the spiritual realm is very real (I see it and experience it every day) and we need TRUTH so we will not believe the lie.

    Fascinating (demonology) teaching against 'self-deliverance' that makes Biblical sense. Wow. Lots of confirmation here (especially if you see things as spirits via the gift of discerning of spirits 1 Corinthians 12:10). A win against the scoffing at 'ranks' of demons (in my book). Matthew 12:45. I reject the 'lumping theology' of everything into 'DNA' as well. The Kingdom has courts/ranks beyond DNA. I especially liked the lesson on why Jesus had the disciples wash each other's feet. So much insight/revelation! This guy always goes deep.

    This is about self-professing Christians who exchange the Truth about God for a lie. It's referring to the 'license' extreme of 'grace' (0 Transformation). Jude 1:3-19 also talks about this. Good fruit/bad fruit (Matt 7:15-23)

    You have to think spiritually (metaphorically and figuratively from knowledge of the New Covenant Word). For example, 'houses' could symbolize hearts/minds, and fields could symbolize denominations of Christianity.

    'Woe (judgment is coming) to those who join house to house and join field to field [to increase their holdings by depriving others],

    Until there is no more room [for others],
    So that you have to live alone in the midst of the land!

    In my ears the Lord of hosts said, “Be assured that many houses will become desolate,
    Even great and beautiful ones will be unoccupied.

    “For ten acres of vineyard will yield [only] one bath of wine,
    And a homer (six bushels) of seed will produce [only] one ephah of grain.”

    Woe (judgment is coming) to those who rise early in the morning to pursue intoxicating drink,
    Who stay up late in the night till wine inflames them!

    They have lyre and harp, tambourine and flute, and wine at their feasts;
    But they do not regard nor even pay attention to the deeds of the Lord,
    Nor do they consider the work of His hands.

    Therefore My people go into exile because they lack knowledge [of God];
    And their honorable men are famished,
    And their common people are parched with thirst.

    Therefore Sheol (the realm of the dead) has increased its appetite and opened its mouth beyond measure;
    And Jerusalem’s splendor, her multitude, her [boisterous] uproar and her [drunken] revelers descend into it.

    So the common man will be bowed down and the man of importance degraded,
    And the eyes of the proud (arrogant) will be degraded.

    But the Lord of hosts will be exalted in justice,
    And God, the Holy One, will show Himself holy in righteousness [through His righteous judgments].

    Then the lambs will graze [among the ruins] as in their own pasture,
    And strangers will eat in the desolate places of the [exiled] wealthy.

    Woe (judgment is coming) to those who drag along wickedness with cords of falsehood,
    And sin as if with cart ropes [towing their own punishment];

    Who say, “Let Him move speedily, let Him expedite His work [His promised vengeance], so that we may see it;
    And let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel approach
    And come to pass, so that we may know it!”

    Woe (judgment is coming) to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    Woe (judgment is coming) to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever and shrewd in their own sight!

    Woe (judgment is coming) to those who are heroes at drinking wine
    And men of strength in mixing intoxicating drinks,

    Who justify the wicked and acquit the guilty for a bribe,
    And take away the rights of those who are in the right!' Isaiah 5:8-23 (AMP)

    O my. Scientific evidence of Jesus Christ Messiah's DIVINITY. The Father's really coming with a wake-up call even for the unbelieving scientists (who would receive it). That is serious mercy, kindness, love, and compassion! [​IMG]

    Watch this video (and the related videos)...Something to consider. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]



    4 Places Jesus' Blood Was Found


    ‎4 Blood Samples of Jesus Studied by Scientists

    ‎Atheist Geneticist Proves Jesus' Father is 'God'


    ‎God Said Jesus is His Son (So Does Jesus' DNA)
    https://youtu.be/9wDy0x31Vzc

    'Israeli geneticists have scientifically confirmed the divinity of Jesus' DNA through tests performed by a team of research scientists in Tel Aviv (news report narrated by archaeologist Ron Wyatt).

    Having 24 distinct chromosomes or 22 autosomes (mother's are duplicated) in addition to 2 (XY) chromosomes, the 22 autosomes of the mother are equal to the corresponding 22 autosomes of the father (one to one) and the X chromosome of the mother (XX) plus the "Y" sex chromosome given by father being (XY).

    In total, 2 of His mother's autosomal chromosomes duplicated times 22, plus 1 (X) chromosome + 1 [​IMG](Y) chromosome = 23 homologous pairs of chromosomes. Thus, the (Heavenly) Father's [​IMG](Y) male chromosome was expressed as Jesus.

    The DNA Jesus is 96% from Mary rather than 50% from Mary as would be normal. So the Holy Spirit had to have inseminated a virginal Mary with the "Y" chromosome of the one true almighty G-d of Avraham.

    ‎במקום הראיות המדעיות, ברור כי ישוע המשיח הוא הצאצאים הגנטיים של אלוהי אברהם. הדם היקר של ישו הוא רק עוד הוכחה ועוד ראיות והוכחה למציאות של הקורבן האוהב של אלוהים של בנו שלו למען חטאינו. שלושה ימים אחרי מותו של ישוע, אלוהים אלוהים של ישראל קם לתחייה והלל אותו, מה שהופך אותו אלמוות, באמצעות כוחה של רוח הקודש. לורד ישוע הוא בבירור בן יהוה ואת המשיח נבואה שלנו. אנו מצפים בשקיקה לבוא השני של המלך שלנו!'

    A quick word to anyone adamantly opposed to 'naming names' (they typically view ANYTHING remotely related to calling people out as 'gossip' 'religious' 'slander' 'judgement' 'backbiting' 'criticism' 'unloving' 'instilling fear' etc..long list.

    'Now I beseech you, brethren, MARK them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them' Romans 16:17

    Mark (skopeó) In this specific passage and context means to regard attentively, take heed, beware, consider.

    There were self-professing believers whom the Apostle Paul called out by NAME. They were NOT DEMONS...they WERE PEOPLE.

    Have you heard the saying 'it's not the demons I'm worried about'?...its MEN. PEOPLE. HUMANS. BELIEVERS. CHURCH FOLK.

    I'm not 'angry' 'wounded' 'bitter' etc...this is THE WORD. (that's a different topic).

    Not everything is evil spirits! Not everything is demons! [​IMG];)

    Some people are so consumed with a spirit of error that they cannot see past their own stronghold of ignorance.

    The following were rebellious PEOPLE in the NEW TESTAMENT that needed to REPENT. Paul NAMED NAMES in the SCRIPTURES. I can only conclude that they must have given Him A LOT of trouble, to record it through THE GOSPEL.

    'ALEXANDER the COPPERSMITH did GREAT HARM TO ME. The Lord will repay him according to his deeds. You too should beware of him, for he has VIGOROUSLY OPPOSED our message.' 2 Timothy 4:14-15

    'Timothy, my child, I entrust you with this command in keeping with the previous prophecies about you, so that by them you may fight the good fight, holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and thereby shipwrecked their faith. Among them are HYMENAEUS and ALEXANDER, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme' 1 Timothy 1:18-20

    'But avoid irreverent and empty chatter, which will only lead to more ungodliness, and the talk of such men will spread like gangrene. Among them are HYMENAEUS and PHILETUS, who have deviated from the truth. They say that the resurrection has already occurred, and they undermine the faith of some' 2 Timothy 2:16-18

    (Disclaimer: Don't get me wrong, you should be careful who you speak against if you don't yet KNOW them or KNOW the favour that God has placed on their life)

    I was just in the bank and suddenly the Holy Spirit had something to say about all the little Halloween idols and plastic jack-o-lanterns littered on the counter with candy in them. He basically just took possession of my willing vessel! (He also spoke against X-mas...to a lesser extent)

    At first the older lady at the counter started spilling out excuses about how 'it's good for the kids' ('kids love candy')...then she ended up agreeing with Holy Spirit and how Jesus Christ is Lord and how she secretly thought and agreed that NOT growing up in Church is the safest place to encounter the Almighty Yahweh. How she doesn't like hypocritical Christians and before I knew it Holy Spirit took over and spoke life into her.

    Everyone stopped talking and listened to Holy Spirit express His disapproval at the unfaithfulness and idolatry of Halloween...How he finds it offensive and just wants His people's devotion to Him alone. He was prophesying out of things I didn't even remember reading and even very recent things I had studied (none of these people needed healings etc...).

    He was spitting fire to all the bank tellers and big banker men and they didn't say a word but looked away in shame...the lady started confessing and loudly coming into agreement (same one who was whispering just a few seconds ago)...only because the Lord's presence and Holy Spirit was thick in there. Also people can tell when the Holy Spirit is spilling out of a believer! It's from PRAYER and Holy Spirit's PRESENCE.

    I love Jesus and the Holy Spirit needs to speak His piece! He hates Halloween! [​IMG] Yes, HATES. He HATES Halloween!

    He HATES Halloween because it STEALS His people's affections AWAY from JESUS. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Some believers just need their FIRE REKINDLED. It's THAT WEAK. They need to STRENGTHEN what is DYING! (Revelation 3:1-6) [​IMG]

    'God is not your superpower' This is a good one about CHRIST'S LORDSHIP.

    Please watch this and judge it for yourself (I always encourage comparing and testing it to God's Word, like any other supernatural experiences/happenings).
