The kingdom Of Spirits

There is a famous wine company, (in the top twenty five of the world,) that was looking for a few summer interns. They searched among the thousands upon thousands of students at the most prestigious colleges across the United States. Twenty five of the top performing students were chosen, flown in, sheltered, wined and dined, and then given a tour through their processing plants, and then through a battery of interviews with the higher ups in the company.

One of my boys was one of the chosen.

At first, the interviews and mixers went well; my son clearly had the advantage over the other students. He knew what to say and when to say it, and had no hang ups or nervousness in speaking to those interviewing him. As a home schooled student, he was used to interacting with many different ages and even with people in authority over him. Questions that stumped the other candidates were easy for him to answer. Once he would give his answer, the others chimed in with likewise answers. He was known by those within the company to be the favored applicant from California.

Then he toured the processing plant.

As soon as the bus carrying all the students drove onto the land, my son could see all the demons. They were so utterly numerous, that it left him speechless. They were vicious demons, some looking like fighting warrior men, while others were animals such as bulls with large horns or dragons with sharp claws and teeth. Others were so black and covered with filth, that he knew they must have come from active satanic worship, from somewhere on the property.

As he walked past the vats of wine and hard alcohol, (this surprised him; he had no idea that they also made hard liquor,) he could see shadows darting in between the containers. He seen the workers there, with their own demons attached to them, following them wherever they went. He bound up the demons that came near him, and the angels that surrounded him were very, very angry at the demons. They shielded my son from the demons attacks.

He described the place as a bus depot for demons. It was a place for the demons to laugh and party with each other, while they waited to hitch a ride in one of the bottles, and then into a human host. Gambling, addiction, pornography, and of course alcoholism, all the vices were there, just waiting to be imbibed.

On his final interview, he was to meet with the head of the department. As soon as he seen the man, he knew that he was a practicing satanist. There were so many demons on this man, that he had to struggle to make out the face of the man throughout all the black swirling smoke that covered him. When my son shook hands with him, my sons hands started to burn. The burning didn’t stop until he left the property. The man spoke very fast and very quietly, almost with a hiss, making it hard to hear him. He refused to repeat anything he said, or answer any questions my son asked him about working there. The interview was a total failure.

When my son came home and walked in to the room, he looked extremely tired. He asked me to bless him. I told him I would in just a minute, (I was in the middle of doing something,) but the Lord Jesus stopped me in my tracks. “When he asks you to bless him, what does that mean?”

Demons!

So I stopped what I was doing and went to get the blessed olive oil to bless him.

As I got closer to him, I could see some demons still tagging on to him. “Oh my!” I said to my son, “I see you have some stragglers on you!”

I bound them up in the name of Jesus, before even getting to the oil, because I did not want them to do something to stop me from blessing him.

As soon as the oil touched his throat, my son stumbled and fell forward, but I was able to catch him. I said “I cast you out in the name of Jesus!” I was angry at the demons and my voice showed this. “Trouble him no more!”

But for the first time in my life, the demons answered me back. “Only if HE,” they sneered, “troubles US no more!”
I gasped in shock, and thought ‘you don’t have the right to tell us what we can or can not do!’ So I answered them, “THAT will be for my Lord to decide!”

Then they left.

He told me that they had bothered him on the way home, and he kept casting them out, but it was difficult to get rid of them all. The blessed olive oil was needed to do the job.

He complained of his sinuses hurting, and of feeling like he was coming down with the flu. I realized then, that the seeds of those demons were still in my son. As he had stood there in that alcohol processing plant, and breathed in all those horrible fumes, he was breathing in all those spores too. So I had him use the nebulizer to breathe in some colloidal silver, to kill off those nasty spores. He said that his eyes began to hurt, from looking at all the demons. So we prayed that the memory of witnessing such horror would go away.

My son assumed that because that final interview was so awful, he would not be getting a job offer from the company. So he didn’t even send the company the standard thank you letter for the interview.

But weeks later, he was offered a summer intern position in a different department. The person who offered him the job, is the same one he would be working for. He flat out told this person that he didn’t think he could work there, because he refused to drink alcohol. The person told him that it would not be a problem; he did not drink alcohol either.

Then this man broke all protocol, (he could have gotten into such trouble for this!,) and asked my son if it was because of his religion. My son heard the Lord tell him that it was o.k. to tell him his religion, so he told him that he was a Christian, and that he didn’t believe in drinking alcohol.

The man’s voice perked up at this, and he said, “so am I! I don’t believe in it either!”

So they got to talking, and by the end of the conversation, my son was torn. He gave him the weekend to decide if he should take the job or not.

On one hand, the job itself would be a bonus; he would get to work with some artificial intelligence, which he has dreamed of doing for years. (This son of mine dreams of building a robot that believes in Jesus.) It would be his first foray into that kind of experience.

On the other hand, dealing with the demons would be a chore. However, he was assured that the office he’d be working at is on a different compound, and has nothing to do with the main one he had visited.

But the deciding factor came when he had prayed and asked the Lord what he should do. It was then that the Lord told him that He wanted him to go work there for the summer, to be there for the man. For some unknown reason, God wanted him there to help him. So he said yes, and accepted the job.

As a side note, a few weeks later my husband had asked me to wrap some bottles of wine to give as gifts to his clients. As I was wrapping them, my hands started to burn. I had to stop because the burning became so severe. I asked one of my sons if he could see anything, and he said yes, and that it was the wine that had the demons in it. This surprised me, for this wine was from a very small and private vineyard that was owned by a Christian home schooling friend of my husband.

I share this post with some apprehension, for I know there are many Christians out there who drink, and they can get quite upset when their drink is in question. Yet from all that we have seen in the unseen world, liquor of any kind, yes even wine from a Christian, is filled with demons.

(In the bible, the word wine can refer to fermented grape juice, or just grape juice that is not yet fermented. Our family has seen no demons in plain aged grape juice. It’s when man tries to change it so that the alcohol level is increased, that trouble seems to occur.)

Proverbs 20:1 – Wine [is] a mocker, strong drink [is] raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

(Mocking and raging are demons.)

Ephesians 5:18 – And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

Romans 14:21 – [It is] good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor [any thing] whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

1 Thessalonians 5:22 (KJV) Abstain from all appearance of evil.

Please Do Not Get That Tattoo!

 

In our family’s experience, where ever blood is spilled from the body, there are demons. The more blood, the more openings, the more demons. Any form of blood-letting will do. Tattooing causes about 3,000 piercings of the skin per minute, which is a lot of openings for demons to enter in. “Blood-letting has both occult and demonic origins as it is considered a power source that is supernaturally unleashed.” (http://www.raptureready.com/featured/schaefer/tattoo.html)

My kids can spot a tattoo parlor from over a mile away, just from all the demons hanging around it. These demons are attached to the parlor, almost like balloons on strings, and they reach out and hover over the city, while they try to entice people to enter in. The demons are covered with tattoos, and they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. We have not found a tattoo parlor yet without demons attached to it. Tattoo artists are filled with demons. (Yes, even ‘Christian’ tattoo artists.) Those demons can easily transfer to you when you get a tattoo from them. Once in, the demon has the right to ask other demons to come and live within you as well. (Matthew 12:43-45)

My kids and I have seen and spoken to many people with tattoos. They have ALWAYS had demons coming out from their tattoos. And yes, this is the same even for ‘Christian’ tattoos. For this reason, we tend not to get together in person on a regular basis with those that flaunt their tattoos, for we have yet to meet one that was free of those demons. (And we do not like to spend our time with demons.) If the person covers them up with their clothing, we don’t get hit as much from the demons. It’s like they are held back somehow, and can not reach us.

One of my kids was friends with a missionary. This man had no tattoos. Then he went to a foreign land to minister unto the people, and when he returned, he had ‘Christian’ tattoos on his hands. He also had demons on him, that were not there before. My kid could see that these demons were attached to his new tattoos. Yes, his CHRISTIAN tattoos! His friend does not believe that his ‘Christian’ tattoos could have opened him up to demons. So the demons in him happily remain.

My husband wanted to show me a wedding photo of one of his friends. When I went to look at the computer screen, I gasped and stumbled back from the onslaught of demons that were reaching out towards me from the computer screen. I then braced myself and carefully looked closer at the photo, to try and discern from where the attack was coming from. I followed the strings of the demons to their end, and found that one of the people in the wedding photo, had tattoos covering both of her arms. (The rest of her was covered, and she had no tattoos on her face.) There wasn’t a place left on her arms that was not covered in ink. I was very glad then, that we had not gone to this wedding. I also felt bad for the bride, who will always have her wedding photo marred with those demons.

Our family knows that God is not fond of tattoo’s, for in Leviticus 19:28 (KJV) He says: “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.” He did not want His children to be mistaken for those who follow pagan gods. Pagans and even Satanists still use tattoos today to mark themselves as being apart from others. Satanists are known to get tattoos as a way of purposely acquiring specific demons.

Some carnal Christians try to explain that piece of scripture away, stating that in Lev 19:27, (right before 19:28,) it forbids one to get a hair cut. But “what Leviticus 19.27 is talking about is ‘rounding the corners of your head’ and ‘marring the corners of your beard’. These were heathen practices. One such practice was to cut the hair so that the head resembled a celestial globe. It is called a ‘tonsure’, a practice of heathens to honor their gods.” (http://pratonix.hubpages.com/hub/The-Tragic-Truth-about-Tattoos)

Did you know that cutting your body is a sign of demonic influence? (Mark 5:1-9) When you get a tattoo, you cut your body. Just thinking about getting a tattoo, shows that a demon is right there trying to entice you into getting one. Cast out that demon in the name of Jesus, before it causes you to mutilate the temple of the living God!

http://www.biblebelievers.com/watkins_tattoos/bible.html states: “…In 1 Corinthians 3, the Lord clearly and sternly warns against defiling your body – the temple of God. …”Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” (1 Corinthians 3:16-17)”

The health risks of getting a tattoo is alarming. Again, sickness comes from demons, and not from God. (John 10:10) Particular demons can cause specific sicknesses. “A tattooing machine can puncture the skin 3,000 times a minute. And every one of those thousands of punctures creates a hole 1/64 to 1/16th of an inch into the dermis that literally invites infection and disease. Every single puncture of the tattoo needle opens up the real possibility of AIDS, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, tetanus, tuberculosis and about any other blood-borne disease. With the average tattoo taking about 60 minutes that equals 180,000 tiny “Russian Roulette” puncture wounds providing a potential path to a very deadly infectious disease. Psalm 38:5-8 almost sounds like it was written just for such an infection… “My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness. I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh. I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.” (http://www.biblebelievers.com/watkins_tattoos/health.html)

God commands us to SEPARATE from the sinful world (2nd Corinthians 6:14-17), and not to help them by befriending and adopting their wickedness.
(http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20America/Apostasy/tattoos.htm)

“Jameison-Faussett-Brown Commentary and Explanatory on the Whole Bible writes under Leviticus 19:28: “…they were wisely forbidden, for they were signs of apostasy; and, when once made, they were insuperable obstacles to a return.””
(http://www.biblebelievers.com/watkins_tattoos/bible.html)

Throughout history tattoos have symbolized rebellion and deviancy. They were used to mark criminals, traitors, and deserters.
(http://www.biblebelievers.com/watkins_tattoos/rebel.html)

Humans learned the art of tattooing, (among other decorating arts of the body,) from the fallen angels that mated with human women before the flood of Noah. (http://www.eaec.org/bibleanswers/Noah.htm) Indeed, an increase in tattooing is a sign of the end times, because so many were doing it in the pre-flood days of Noah. It would not surprise me if the mark of the beast might one day be noted with a tattoo.

“Former Satanists have stated that one of the major societal signs of a society slipping into Satanism is a surge in the number of body piercings and tattoos. God forbade tattooing of the body in Deu 14:1 and Lev 19:28 because it went hand in hand with the Satan worship among the foreign populations of the people living in Israel at the time. God forbade body piercing in Leviticus 21:5, also because it was part of the satanic practice of that time, and God wanted Israel to have nothing to do with either the practice or the outward physical manifestations of it. Many of the people who pierce the body are practicing Satanists, and will take a month’s supply of body piercing jewelry to their monthly coven meeting to be cursed. Specific curses will be placed upon each piece of body piercing jewelry so that a person having their body pierced will automatically invite demons into their body. Many of the people performing tattoos will likewise have their work cursed.”

“…we are to live life as a new creature that is set apart as different from the world in lifestyle, faith and practice. We are to walk circumspectly and modestly, humbling ourselves–rather than look to ostentatious display wherein we look for ways to be adulated as the world does… Tattooing and body piercing (in the most basic, honest, definition) is the vain marking, cutting or self-mutilation of the human body for the express purpose of pretentious display, adulation or admiration. Basically, you want others to see this portrait that you’ve had placed upon yourself, that you may in some way glory in it. Is that a harsh evaluation? Of course, because the truth is a harsh and often bitter pill. Nevertheless, what other reason is there for these actions except to stand out, for adulation, for rebellion or for the lust of the eyes? Along with idolatry, these are the same reasons that the world had for doing these things to the body. Are we to honestly claim that we have different reasons? As is illustrated in 1st John 2:15-16, this is the way of the world, not of those who are supposed to be “set apart” or sanctified from the world for the service of God. We don’t need tattoos and body piercings to glory in, to attract converts, attention, to be prideful of, or to feel good about ourselves. We have the faith of Christ within us, the genesis of humility and selfless service.” http://www.mountainretreatorg.net/faq/should_christians_get_tattoos.shtml

We should honestly ask ourselves, “is tattooing ourselves and placing body piercings all over our body, glorifying to God?” If not, then why are we doing it? We are not our own and so we simply do not have the right to do anything we want with our life, our spirit or our body. It all belongs to God who purchased it. That is what many professing Christians (consciously and unconsciously) neglect. Again, would we paint graffiti on someone else’s building? It is interesting that in man’s justification of this behavior (his weakness) many professing Christians say that they should have the free will or catch all, “Christian liberty,” to do whatever they chose with their own body. Indeed this sounds perilously close to the justifications of those who support the so-called “right to choose” in the abortion rights issue. I’m not saying that people who want tattoos and body piercings are akin to abortionists, but I am saying that the carnal self-serving mindset is the same. It is one of narcissism where they desire what is their will, rather than have the love of God to desire what He wills for us. It is truly a lack of surrendering ourselves and our will fully to the will of God. We are living in the “Me Generation” where there is a marked and growing disdain for Godly selflessness, sacrifice and denial. As long as they can do whatever they want, they will joy in being Christ-like. However, if there are any restrictions, then they want no part of that kind of Christianity. This is so because all law is by nature judgmental, and that’s considered a violation of so-called Christian liberty. Yet there truly is no such Christian liberty that excuses Christians to do such things. It is a Christian myth that has been perpetrated upon the church for years.”

What happens if another new baby Christian sees another Christian with a tattoo, and then thinks he can do it too? That Christian would be partially responsible for this new baby believer getting more demons into their life! We need to be salt and light to others, as we draw them towards Christ. We are supposed to be known by our fruit. A tattoo upon our body is a form of fruit. And it is not from God, but from the evil one. Scripture tells us in Romans 14:21, (KJV): “It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.” If someone sees the tattoos and asks you about them, tell them that they are as sin to you, and not something for them to emulate.

Tattoos are a sign of being in the world and of the world. God has not said in His word that we are to do such a thing. Instead, it states that we are not to do it, because it is pagan. Those who are proud of their ‘Christian’ tattoos remind me of those who proudly celebrate Christmas and Easter. They claim they do so (and think it right in their own mind,) because whatever they do, they do in the name of Jesus. (They like to quote Colossians 2:16 in their defense, but God never called pagan practices ‘holy’, so this piece of scripture doesn’t fit.) Jesus never said that it was acceptable to worship Him like the pagans worship their gods. Some people in the Old Testament got into trouble because they tried to do that. Christian tattoos are no different. Jesus never said that we could go against Old Testament scripture and get a tattoo like the pagans do, as long as we do it in His name and for His glory!

It is heart-wrenching to run into someone who has tattoos but now wishes to undo them. http://www.biblebelievers.com/watkins_tattoos/regret.html states that “As many as 80 percent of people with tattoos regret their tattoo.” And it is very expensive to remove it! To remove a twenty five dollar tattoo can cost thousands of dollars. And no, insurance does not cover the procedure. I do find it interesting, that a laser light is what’s needed to remove one. Repeated shining of a very bright light onto that darkness is what it takes to erase them.

For those reading this post who have already gotten that tattoo, ask the Lord what He wants you to do about it. If He wants you to have it removed, then He will help you find the way and the money to have it done. If the tattoos are able to be covered with clothing, then cover them. Our family has noticed that the demons are way less able to affect others when they are covered and unseen.

I would try applying blessed olive oil to the tattoos, and blessing them in the name of Jesus, until they can be removed. Plead the blood of Jesus over them and over you as well. Demons HATE blessed olive oil, as it represents the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. (And we have seen and heard demons scream in pain when the Blood of Jesus hits them!)

When casting out the tattoo demons, I would cast out all demons that come to mind. If there is the slightest thought that it could have transferred to you, then cast it out in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. You might want to look at the place and the person who gave you the tattoo for clues. Look at the problems that your tattoo artist had. For example, did he or she like to get drunk? Were they into pornography? Divorced? Whatever symbols that they worked with, would need to be cast out also, just in case they may have transferred themselves to you. Keep in mind, that the demons often lay dormant for years, before coming out to harass you. They can also use you as a conduit in order to transfer themselves to someone else. (For example, you may never know you had the demon of pornography in you, but suddenly your friend gets hit with those desires. The demon could have transferred itself from you to your friend.)

List of possible demons to cast out: skulls, bloodletting, tattooing, fire, shamanism, mysticism, roots, occult, paganism, demonism, baal, hell, cannibalism and vampirism, (especially if you seen your tattoo artist lick the blood that came from your tattooing,) serpent worship, death, priest-craft, magic, heathenism, sun worship, darkness, resentment, rebellion, witchcraft, deviancy, defiling, adultery, criminal, homosexuality, lesbianism, sexual perversion, alcoholism, drugs, violence, depression, sickness, regret, defile,, worldly, idolatry, pornography, hopelessness, anger, rage, self-righteousness, hate, un-forgiveness, satan, apathy. If your tattoo artist used specific names of the tattoo they were applying to your skin, then cast that particular name out as well.

There are some ministries out there, that are willing to help you remove the tattoo for free or at low cost. You might try doing a search on line to see if there are any in your area.

I had hoped to delay the posting of this topic, until we had met someone with tattoos that wanted to get rid of them. But sadly, as of this date, no one we know personally who has tattoos, believes that they could have any tattoo demons. They refuse to have them cast out in Jesus name. And they do not want to get rid of their tattoos. So, we are uncertain if the demons can be removed, with the tattoo still remaining. My guess is that they could at least be bound up in the name of Jesus, so they could not cause anyone any problems. I suspect that those tattoos of satanic origin (skulls, pentagrams, snakes, demons, etc.,) would act like a doorway for the demons to enter back in, simply because of their picturesque symbolism. Demons are attracted to those kinds of symbols. It is like a welcome mat to them.

The Lord is pressing me to share our family’s testimony concerning tattoos now, and to not wait any longer, for He has told me that the practice is increasing among His people, and that this is not His Will for His beloved children.

The other night, I had a horrible dream. I dreamed that I was trying to help out another believer, but she suddenly showed up with some kind of orange and white Indian tattoo over her body, and I found that I could no longer reach her. Whenever I got too close, the demons that were now in her through the tattoos, would come forth and physically shove me back. Meanwhile those demons took great satisfaction in torturing her. There was a sharp sense of horror and unreality, the kind that one goes through after a bad accident, when the mind screams ‘this is not happening to me!’ With tears streaming down both of our faces, the other believer and I kept wishing that we could turn back the hands of time, and stop her from getting the tattoo. I awoke from the dream with sorrow sitting upon my heart. I hesitated at first, to share this dream with you, for I was uncertain from whom the dream came from. But now I am sensing that I am to share it, for even if it was sent from the evil one in an effort to try and scare me and make me feel hopeless, (it didn’t work, for God’s Word is more powerful than any demon,) God proposes to use it for His glory, His kingdom, and His people.

Let us not be assimilated into the practices and customs of the world, but let us be a peculiar people set apart for Christ. (http://www.mountainretreatorg.net/faq/should_christians_get_tattoos.shtml)

“Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came’; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation.” (Matthew 12:43-45)

And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. (Mark 5:1-9) (See also Luke 8:26-28)

Waiting In The Waiting Room

 

 

I was getting ready to go into the doctor’s again
For blood work to be done,
When I kept feeling God tell me to bring my bible along with me.

“My bible?!? Why?”

“I want you to read it while you’re waiting in the waiting room.”

I thought of the other book that I had planned to bring,
But He told me no. So I didn’t.

I was about to forget to bring it, but God reminded me.

So I went to go get it.

As I reached for the Geneva one, God told me no.

“I want you to bring your red-covered one.”

“But Lord! They’re going to think I’m one of those
Weirdo bible-thumping Christians!
Anyone will be able to tell that it’s a bible!”

“Maybe I want them to see this.
Maybe some one else needs to be reminded
That even my younger generation holds believers in Me.”

(Sigh.)
So I brought it with me, wondering if this too,
Is just another trick my imagination is playing on me,
And that it’s really NOT my God telling me to do this.

When I get there, there are only two other people in the waiting room.

So, I sit down to wait.

I ask the voice within, what I am to read.
James came to mind, as that is my husband’s favorite chapter to read.

And so I began reading.
I was going to remove my sunglasses,
But I could feel the Lord tell me no,
So I left them on. (I had no make up on underneath.)

Soon after, an older woman walks in,
And to my surprise she sits down next to me.
(There were many other chairs that she could have sat on.)

Moments later, she asks me out of the blue,
“What does the word ‘infidel’ mean?”

I couldn’t help it;
I looked at her like ‘huh?!?’

“I see you reading your bible,”
She said, motioning to my book,
“I was wondering if you could tell me,
What the word infidel means.
You know; where it says in the bible
That a man who does not take care of his family
Is worse than an infidel.”

(Gasp!*)
“Oh, that’s painful!,” I whispered.
I remembered well, being in that space.

“I’m not sure,” I replied tentatively.
“I can see if it’s here in the back of my bible.”

But it wasn’t there.

“I think it means ‘unbeliever’.
At least I know that’s the Muslim definition of the word.”

Then she started telling me about her husband,
Who has left her, for the world of sex & pornography.

So I told her a little about my husband,
And how we too, went through the problems common to addictions,
And I even told her about one of my older sons,
And his struggle with the demons of pornography.

All during this time, others were coming into the waiting room,
Some of whom seemed to listen to our conversation
INTENTLY.

I tried to encourage her to keep praying for him,
Especially P.U.S.H. prayer, (praying until something happens,)
As that is what has helped me with my husband.
I told her, “Just think of when he suddenly comes to his senses,
and realizes just what a beautiful woman he’s lost!
You don’t just give up 47 years of marriage
Without any regrets! There’s HISTORY there!
Many GOOD times that were shared!
That matters! It counts for quite a bit!”

“He used to listen,” she responded to me,
“to the televangelist right along with me.
He used to call himself a Christian. But now…
Well,…I’m not so certain if God really wants me
To keep praying for him and our marriage.
After all, the bible does say that we are to escape from evil.
Maybe God doesn’t want me to stay married to him!”

My heart just ACHED for her, hearing this!!

But I shook my head in disagreement.
“I KNOW that God does not like divorce!”

Then she seemed to remember the piece of scripture that claims this.
“Ah yes, it is only because of man’s heart being hard, that God o.k.’s it.”

Just then, the nurse calls for me.
So I said goodbye to her, and went in.

And I cried all the way through having my blood drawn.

Not because of the pain from the needle,
But because of the pain leaching from this woman’s heart.

When I walked back out there, a part of me was afraid
That she would still be there.

What would I say to her?
What COULD I say to her to help ease her pain?

Sure enough, she was still waiting out there in the waiting room.
Along with many of the others who had been avidly listening in
To our exchange.

“OH LORD!”, I screamed in my mind, “WHAT DO I SAY?!”

“Peace, little one. I will give you the words to say…”

And sure enough, He did.

Her eyes snagged mine, the moment I stepped out into the waiting room,
So I knew that she still wanted to talk.

So I walked over to her, and as I stood before her,
She told me more of her problem.

“It’s not just him,” she confides to me, “It’s me, too. I get so angry at him!
I try to talk to him, but he just won’t listen!”

I nod in understanding.
“My husband wouldn’t listen to me either.
The only thing that would work, is prayer.”

“I get so angry,” she continues, “that I loose control.”

I told her that Al-Anon helped me deal with my anger issues.
But I sensed she did not want to hear more about that.
I did not push that avenue, for I had just recently learned
That it was not wholly Christian.
I sensed that there must be another piece to the puzzle,
(something else believers can do to fight such issues,)
But it was one I did not have yet, so I remained silent.

I then sensed that our time together was coming to a close,
So I asked her, if I could have the first name of her husband,
So I could pray for him.
She asked me what I had just said, and I forced myself to repeat it.
(I’m not usually one to ask for names, but I do know now,
that it makes the prayers more effective.)
She told me, and then she said she would pray for my son, too.

The nurse then came in, and called for her.
(So I now have her first name to use in prayer as well.)
I wrote them down on a little sticky note, and stuck it in my bible.

Then unseeing, I walked out to my car,
And once in it, Proceeded to bawl my eyes out.

Here I am,
DOUBTING MY GOD,
Wondering if he even exists,
And here he shows me
WITHOUT A SHADOW OF DOUBT,
That He doesn’t just exist,
HE STILL LIVES!

And even more, that I, sick as I am,
Can still be of use to Him!

Update:

I still wonder how that woman is doing,
If her husband has returned back home
And has been set free from the addiction.

I wish I could talk to her now to let her know
What that missing piece of the puzzle is,
For I am learning about the other tool that has been given to all believers
To fight off such sin problems and issues;
The quoting of scriptures and casting out demons in His name!

I wish I could thank that woman for her prayers,
And let her know of a victory in answered prayer,
For my son with the addiction problem
Gave his life over to Christ one evening, many months later,
(After watching the movie entitled: “Fireproof”,)
And has since been set free from that demon of addiction!
 
PRAISE BE TO OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!
