Playing Football For The King

A dream…

I am to work for the King. But the work I was doing was being stopped by the authorities. I knew I could go over their heads and get the job done, but I’d have to fight all their red-tape and that thought scared me away.

So I left, but not far enough away. I went to the ocean side, and hid among many others.

Then I heard that the King was searching for me. A part of me was flattered, (the King wants me?), and yet the other part of me, wanted to be left alone.

Then I overheard people saying that the King was searching for someone who could play football for His team.

I knew, without doubt, He was searching for me.

An emissary for the King called out to us all, “The King is looking for the one who can play football!”
Others around me, gave pause for a moment, and then continued on with their life. I could have raised my hand, but did not. (Why? Too shy? Or did I just not like playing football, and would rather not?)
So the King’s men spread out among the people, and began to play football among them. Every now and then, the ball would chance upon someone, who either ignored it, or tried to play it back to them.
Then, as I was interacting with others, the ball came right at me.

I caught it without thought. I held the ball for a moment, and then nonchalantly tossed it back to them.

“Hey!”, they exclaimed, pointing at me, “she can play football!” (A girl who can play football? – A novelty!)

“Get her!” exclaimed their leader, and they all began converging to where I was.

I ran. They followed. But they couldn’t catch me. Every time they’d get close, I’d manage to get help from the others around me and they would hide me.

I enjoyed the chase, for it was a chase between a loved one and the lover, but I did not want to be caught! Getting caught would mean the loss of my freedom, and I enjoyed living free.

Then, they caught me. They marked me as one who belonged to the King, and then brought me before Him.
I feared seeing Him. I knew He would want me, but I feared settling down with Him. Wouldn’t everyday life with the King be boring? There would be responsibilities placed upon my shoulders, responsibilities I did not want. I knew joining with Him would be wonderful, but I just didn’t want to join him yet!

Then, suddenly, I am before Him. The great King comes down from his throne, and comes to me. Already, my soul feels the pleasure that will come from being with Him.

He dismisses his men with a nod, but never takes His eyes off of me.

(Oh, to be loved like this!)

He reaches out to me then, aglow with His power and His love, to gently touch my cheek. “Why, ma petite?” He asks me.

At first, I cannot look at Him, and then I can no longer avoid Him, and I then open my eyes – my soul – to His gaze. With just that one look, He can see all my emotion; my fear, my projections, my self-will. And a moment pauses, as He takes this in.

Then, He asks me again, “why? Are you not mine?” The mixing pain, shame, and love, is too much for me to take, and I close my eyes.

Then I awake.

What Ebola Really Is

In the middle of the night, my Lord woke me up.

“Ma Petite! Ma Petite!” He whispered to me with urgency. Over and over He whispered my name, until I began to wake up. He was quite persistent, and very, very patient. It took several minutes for me to wake me up, for I was in a deep sleep. But finally I was awake enough to respond to Him.

“Yes, Lord?” I mumbled. “What is it?”

I sensed Him overlooking all the earth. “Ebola! EBOLA! Oh Ma Petite,” He says, with great sorrow in His voice, “My children FEAR Ebola, and this is not My Will for them!”

“Oh?” I said, rubbing the last bit of sleep from my eyes.

Then I felt Him turn directly to me.

“What about you, Ma Petite? Do YOU fear Ebola?”

I thought about it for a moment before answering. “No.”

“Why not?” the Lord asked me. He was quite insistent in hearing my answer.

I thought for a moment, before answering. I was wide awake now. “Because I know what Ebola really is.”

I sensed the Lord nod in agreement, pleased with my answer, before turning back to the earth.

“Tell My children, Ma Petite. Tell them what Ebola really is. They need to know too, Ma Petite, so they do not live in fear of it anymore.”

“Tell them what Ebola really is!”

*

That very morning, I began to think about what I would say in this post.

Then satan, (that weaseling snake,) came and whispered in my ear.

“But this virus is DIFFERENT than all the other viruses you’ve dealt with. This one is MAN MADE! You can’t fight off this one like you have all the others. The other ones were natural. They were easier to fight off. This one is DIFFERENT!”

Sadly, I listened to his poisoned words, and began to ponder upon them.

Then, a little while later, doubt entered in.

I began to research Ebola, to try to discover more about this virus. Sure enough, there were those who claimed it was indeed, man made.

For a whole week, it stopped me from writing, as I dug deeper into all the information that is out there on the virus.

As I dug deeper, FEAR entered in to me as well. I myself began to fear the virus. If it was indeed different, then how would I be able to fight it off? It got so bad that I became immobilized from the fear. I could do little else, than just sit there in front of my computer, in the fear.

Then I couldn’t take it anymore, and turned back to God in prayer. I told Him how sad I was, that instead of doing what He had asked of me, that I too, was now hit with that same fear that the Lord said His children, my brothers and sisters in Christ, were suffering from. I asked Him to forgive me, and to help me to SEE the answer that I knew must be there somewhere. I figured that God wouldn’t ask me to do something that I could not do. Somewhere, someway, God would make the way.

He didn’t respond to my questions immediately. Instead, He told me to go out with my husband for dinner, (a real treat for us,) and to talk to him about it.

So we went out, and I told my husband while we were at dinner, about the message I had received from God, and then about the doubt that had crept in.

Now, those of you who have been following this blog for a while now, can guess as to what I believe viruses really are.

They are DEMONS, nothing more, nothing less.

Yet the whole man made part really threw me, for if man made it, then there would be no demons in it, for as far as I know, man can not make demons.

But then my beloved husband asks me, “What if the demons for this ‘Ebola’ had been created long ago, and have simply been tucked away waiting for their time upon the earth?”

Wow, relief! I agreed with him. I could see this happening easily, for even in Revelation, it speaks of demons being held back until their appointed time. So why not ones for Ebola?

Then after dinner, the Lord told me to share what I was going through with one of my kids.

When I did, it was pointed out to me, (by the kid who can see so easily into the unseen world,) that many evil things have been created by man before, and those things usually have some really bad demons attached to them. When man makes something that is meant for evil, it is a sin. And wherever sin is, there are demons.

Then the Lord told me to spend some time reading from one of my favorite books on healing, called “His Healing Power”, by Lilian B. Yeomans, M. D. (ISBN-13: 978-1-57794-819-3, and ISBN-10: 1-57794-819-X.) This book has always been a TREMENDOUS help in boosting up my belief that one could be healed. The author was an MD, a licensed physician, and she gave up her practice, because she found that she had far better results with just the Word of God alone. The Lord saved her out of the claws of addiction, (an addiction to morphine,) after being told by other doctors that she was a hopeless case and had just a few months to live. She lived far longer, and brought healing to many through her testimonies. She has seen MANY DEADLY DISEASES CURED by the Holy Spirit. It is a book I HIGHLY recommend getting for your library!
Well, anyways, after reading her book again, the last of my doubts were removed, and then I was able to go ahead and write this post.

I share this struggle with you, to show how devious satan can be, and how he attacks those who are trying to do God’s Will.

Now that I look back upon it, it seems so silly, to doubt God just because the virus might be man made. I am actually ashamed to admit that something that silly stopped me. But that is how satan works. He distorts one’s vision with his doubts, so you can not see the truth.

*

One thing that really interested me during my research into Ebola, was that some of the people who wore the containment suits, still came down with Ebola. And some of the comments placed about this sounded so bewildered; they even pointed out that the workers must have been very careful in the use of their suits, for they knew it was a matter of life and death. Yet they still became sick from Ebola. Of course they were saying this, thinking of how severely contagious it must be. Yet when I first read this, I almost shouted out loud “demon!”, so clear was the revelation from this example. After all, a containment suit is no protection from a demon. Spirits would go right through it!

Then all the demon would have had to do, is place its lying symptoms of say, fever, headache, and muscle aches for example, on to the person, and then if the person believed those lies, The symptoms would become his, and the disease could then enter in and do its damage to the person.

Yes, I can just imagine all those who may read this and think “Wow is she foolish!”(1 Corinthians 1:18,) yet I am here to testify, that I DO NOT GET SICK FROM VIRUSES ANYMORE.

And for me, this is quite the blessing and a miracle besides!

For those of you who do not know this, many years ago, a group of doctors proclaimed that I had only a few months to live. They had given up on me, and told me that I had maybe three to four months left to live, six at the most. Yet thankfully the Lord had other ideas for me. (Thank You Jesus Christ of Nazareth!)

At first, (after being sent home to die,) I got into all the herbs and vitamins that one could take for my illnesses, and soon satan had me convinced that I had to take all these vitamins and herbs, or I would get sick again. If I missed one, I got sick. I’d still get sick even if I didn’t realize that I had missed one, until many days later. I was taking over sixty pills a day just to stay healthy! Much of our money was wasted on this stuff. Thousands upon thousands of dollars was spent on it, year after year. I came into bondage to those vitamins and herbs. I lived in fear of when the powers that be would simply declare them illegal and then cut off my supply. I figured that then I would die.

Then one day the many vitamins and herbs I took couldn’t stop another ‘incurable’ disease from attacking me.

I kept praying and asking the Lord to come save me. In return, the Lord kept asking me to give up all the herbs and vitamins that I was taking.

It was during this time, that I learned that sicknesses, especially viruses, were caused by demons. And the Lord was teaching me all about casting them out in His Name, and in claiming good health also in His perfect name.

So, I claimed that I could go off all those vitamins and herbs, and still not get more sick.

And then I did. I went off of them, and I found that I was not just free from having to swallow all those pills, but I was free from that so-called ‘incurable’ diseases, too! Hallelujah!

Now I will say, that there are times when the Lord will tell me, to eat a certain fruit, or take a few vitamins or herbs, but it is in no way even close to what I had been doing before. Just a few here and there, and then just for a day or two. There are months that can go by, without the Lord telling me to take anything.

And yet the viruses do not get me.

Oh they have tried. But now THEY LOOSE EVERY SINGLE TIME.

It usually starts out, with a swollen gland, or slight sore throat. And then I hear a demon from the pit of hell, whispering in my ear, “Your throat is starting to hurt, and your glands are starting to swell up. Your getting sick…”

And then I stop whatever it was that I was doing, to address the evil imp right away. (Waiting only gives satan time to push more lying symptoms onto me, in the hopes that I will accept them as my own by default.) I say right out loud, (it must be out loud, for satan can not read ones mind,) “You’re a liar satan! I don’t believe you at all! These symptoms are LIES! They are NOT MINE! They belong to YOU! THEY ARE YOURS! Take your lying symptoms and get out! Go where my Lord God will have you go! I forbid any of your replacing spirits to take your place! Get out and trouble me no more!”

Next, I pull out some scriptures and read it out loud. Sometimes Psalm 91, other times I will say some of my other favorite scriptures, like: “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future.”, and “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.” (Jeremiah 29:11, Proverbs 3:5-6.) Singing praises to Him also helps; if I can not remember any praise songs to Him at that moment, I will sing a joyous song in tongues, knowing that the Lord will interpret what is in my heart.

Then I claim, out loud, that all lying symptoms will be gone within the hour or less, in the name of Jesus. (Sometimes I have claimed that the lying symptoms are gone already, while other times the Lord has had me claim that they will be gone by morning light, but this is usually when I have let it go for too long, before trying to fight it off.) I say out loud” “FOR IF YOU LIVE IN ME, AND MY WORD LIVES IN YOU, YOU MAY ASK ME FOR ANYTHING IN MY NAME, AND YOU WILL RECEIVE IT, IN ORDER TO GIVE GLORY TO THE FATHER, AND IN ORDER THAT YOUR JOY WOULD BE FULL.” (John 15:7, John 14:13-14, and John 16:23-24.)

Then I covered myself (verbally) with the blood of Jesus, (Revelation 12:11 & 1:5, Romans 5:9, 1 John 1:7-9) and then asked the Lord to send His angels down to watch over me and protect me from satan’s attacks. (Psalm 34:7.)

Every time my body is prompted with more symptoms, (or more of the same ones,) I repeat this process and call him a liar all over again. Sometimes I have felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to get another believer to anoint me with the blessed olive oil, (a symbol of the Holy Spirit,) and ask for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to help the process along. (James 5:14-16, Mark 6:13, Luke 10:34, Psalms 23:5.) This has been especially helpful in fighting off headaches and migraines. Sometimes the moment the oil touches my temple, the pain IMMEDIATELY leaves. Other times, it takes a short while for the pain to go. Demons hate blessed olive oil! (To bless the oil to be used for anointing oil is to proclaim it to be blessed in the name of Jesus. I suggest holding up the bottle and saying “Jesus, please bless this oil in Your name, and fill it with Your Holy Spirit. It is now set aside as blessing oil, and is to be used as a symbol of Your Holy Spirit’s indwelling.”) Note: Do NOT use the old testament oil, a special mixture of herbs and oil, for your blessing. This often carries the spirit of priest-craft in it. (Exodus 30:31 – 30:33.) Just use plain olive oil. (Some success has been seen using just regular vegetable oil, and in one case, motor oil, if there is nothing else available.) Do note however, healing happens most of the time without any oil, so if you are too poor to buy some, HAVE NO FEAR, the Lord will know this, and still keep you well without it!

The first time I tried all this, I actually fell asleep fighting off satan. He kept at me so diligently, that I resorted to speaking out loud small scriptures, just so I wouldn’t have to listen to him taunt and pester me anymore. I kept saying over an over again: “No evil dis-ease shall cleave to my body, in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ!”, and “By His stripes I am healed!” and “He heals me from ALL my disease!” (I get these sayings from Psalm 103:3, and Isaiah 53:5,) till I fell asleep. In the morning, all the lying symptoms were GONE.

For the most part, the sicknesses stopped. (Not the attacks, just the sicknesses.) Then I realized that I was still getting sick about twice a year. No matter how hard I fought off satan’s lying symptoms, I’d still end up sick. Bewildered, I went to the Lord and asked Him why I still fell sick at those times. (I knew it must be something I had done, for God was perfect and I was not.) The Lord then reminded me that I had told others that I now only get sick about twice a year. So here I was, verbally giving the jinx demon permission to win control over me twice a year! After verbally taking back those words, and telling the jinx demon to cross those words off of his list of self-imposed curses, the sicknesses stopped. I HAVEN’T BEEN SICK SINCE!

Satan will try to hit you with doubt; expect it and be ready for it. He does not like to give up his control over you easily. He wants you to continue to believe his lies. He likes to see you sick and miserable and too weak to do anything for the kingdom of God.

Satan has even used other believers to attack me with doubt. I have had those who claim that only SOME of the sicknesses are from demons; the rest are ‘real’ and ‘natural’, and they must be treated with herbs and even medicines.

But then satan would always try to get me to wonder, which sicknesses were from satan, and which ones were not. (And of course, the one I’d be currently trying to fight off, would always be the one that satan claimed could not be fought off with the Word of God and faith alone.)

Finally, I realized that this was a doctrine from demons, and not from God. There are many scriptures that claim that Jesus wants His children to have health, healing, and wholeness. My favorite one says that He came to give life and that you might have it more abundantly, and that it was satan that comes to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10.)

Another doctrine of demons to be aware of, is the use of Paul’s thorn to defend sickness. (2 Cor. 12:7-10.) But if you read the passage carefully, you will find that Paul’s thorn was actually a messenger, an evil fallen angel, sent by satan to continually hit Paul with persecutions, because he was serving the Lord so faithfully. That thorn had nothing to do with an ‘incurable’ sickness! For an eye-opening teaching on this, please see: http://www.awmi.net/extra/article/pauls_thorn .

So, what will you now do, after reading this testimony? Will you live in fear of Ebola? If you do, you have just given the Jinx demon an opening for the Ebola virus (or any other virus for that matter,) to attack you. God’s people are not to live in fear of such things. It is not His Will for you to suffer like that!

If you start having symptoms of sickness, what will you do? Will you fight it off as if it is a real attack from an enemy that is hovering right next to you? Will you tell it forcefully, and with deep belief, that it is nothing but a liar, and that those symptoms the devil has been putting on you are nothing but satan’s lies? (Ephesians 2:6.) Will you have some scriptures ready, to use to fight it off?

Yes, you can prepare to fight off Ebola, or any other virus. And if you are reading this post, then you have access to a computer, which means you have access to the Word of God, and this means you already have everything you have to have to fight these demons off!

Now if you hear the Lord tell you to store up some Nano Silver 10 PPM or simple colloidal silver, or other immune boosting herbs and vitamins, (or whatever,) then do so. Like Mary, the mother of Jesus said in John 2:5, “Do whatever he tells you.” Sometimes the Lord will use what is at your disposal, (or at His,) to bring forth His miracle, just like bathing in the Jordan river, or rubbing mud on the eyes. (2 Kings 5:10, John 9:6.) Just know, that IT IS POSSIBLE to be healed without any of them! (Matthew 8:5-17, Matthew 9:35, Mark 5:34, Luke 8:43-56.)

To all of God’s children: May you continue to fight the good fight! May the Lord bless you and keep you, and may His face shine down upon you and give you HIS PEACE!

I thought about putting a bunch of scriptures here on healing, (there are many,) but the Lord wanted me to focus on finding scriptures on fear instead.

The Biggest Event In This Man’s Life

A dream…

This time, I am an angel of the Lord,
A recording angel,
Sent to accompany one of the healing angels of the Lord on a mission of mercy and grace, and to answer a believer’s prayer.

We are in one of the top hospitals in the world,
In the cardiologist department.

Before me, is the head of the department,
An African-American doctor well known for his newest advanced treatments in cardiology. (He was very proud of himself, having come so far despite those who had been prejudiced against him because of his ethnicity.)

Also with him in his office, is his wife and son.

His wife is still quite pretty despite her older age, dressed in the latest of fashions, and her glossy hair smoothed out into a shoulder-length bob, and his son, a teenager, only fourteen years old, was with her. The son looked like he had taken a short break from his prep school, for he still had on the sharp looking dark blue pants and crisp white shirt, tie, and blazer that was the uniform of the private school.

It was noon, and the man’s wife and children had come to see if they could pull him away from his work for just an hour or so for lunch.

I watched, as they began to argue, for the man had already forbidden his wife and child to come and trouble him while he was working. But his wife still pleaded with him, telling him that it was the only place that he would even stop to listen to them, and since it was during his lunch break, she felt he should be able to spend some time with them.

The boy then picked up a handful of fat tongue depressors that had been sitting on the cardiologist’s desk, and began stuffing them into his suit pocket. The man became quite upset at this, and told him to stop and put them back. His son then told him that he needed them for his school project, as regular Popsicle sticks were too thin for his use. The father then returned to fighting with the mother, blaming her for interrupting his day and trying to shame her into leaving. But she would not.

I knew the man would not leave and go to lunch with his wife, for he felt could not; he had pompously just told his staff that they could take their breaks, and that he alone would stay and watch over the patients for the next half an hour. It wasn’t like the unit was full; there was only four patients in his unit, and he was very confident that he could handle it all by himself.

Of the four patients, one was his closest friend, a man he had grown up with and gone to school with. He was most worried about him, for he exhibited the worst of symptoms, and looked to be on his last breath. He hated the thought that there was not more that he could do for him, and he feared that his best friend would die under his care.

Of the remaining three patients, there was another one that he felt shouldn’t even have been admitted into his care, for he felt his case was not serious enough to warrant his attention. He remained there under his care, as a favor to another, who was on the board of directors. (He resented this.)

Suddenly, as the man and wife continued to argue, one of the heart monitors begins to fluctuate. I waited for the man to stop arguing with his wife, and go check it out, but he was not paying any attention to anything except his wife.

I went into the room of this man’s best friend, and watched the heart monitor completely change, and listened to the man warmly chuckle and laugh with joy. My angel partner was doing his work on him as he had been ordered to do by the great I AM. The man was being completely healed and strengthened, and was being told what he was to do with the rest of his life. He was to give up his previously self-centered lifestyle and serve the one who had just saved him. This pleased the man very much, for he had always wondered in the back of his mind, if there really was a God somewhere up in the heavens, and now he was getting all the proof he needed that there was. I listened to his voice, (it reminded me of James Earl Jones,) and was warmed by his enthusiasm upon receiving his instructions. I kept thinking that the cardiologist should be in this room witnessing this, but when I went back out to check in on him, he was still too engrossed in arguing with his wife.

This grieved me greatly, (as it did the Lord,) for I knew that he was missing the biggest event in this man’s life. His eternal life, and those of his family’s, was at stake. If he had been in that room, witnessing all that transpired, he would have become a believer in Christ. His then changed behavior, would have caused his wife and son to also become a believer in Jesus. But because the man had not taken the few minutes that was needed the night before, to tell his wife something that showed he still cared for her, and ask his son how he was doing in school, he was now missing the most important moment of his entire life, and even the most important moment of his friend’s life.

For from this moment on, the cardiologist would begin to grow apart from his closest friend, because he would not believe what had just happened to him, and would think his best friend was crazed. His friend would try to tell him what had really transpired in that room, but he would never come to believe it. He would peruse past the monitor’s print outs and see the return to normal heart beats, but would have no reasoning for it, except for his friend probably following his regiment so closely.

Just moments after my angel of healing partner left the cardiologist’s best friend, the other man’s heart monitor, the one who the cardiologist felt should not have even been there, began to beat erratically, and then flat lined. I went back out to check on the cardiologist, but once again, he was too involved in arguing with his wife, (trying to be self-righteous,) that he completely missed the other man’s heart alarm going off.

This saddened both me and the Lord, for we knew that all it would take to save this man, was a defibrillator  to his chest, and all would have been well again. (No prayers were ever said for this man, and he was a staunch atheist, so we did not intervene.)

But the man ended up dying. And as this man was not a believer, we knew his soul would now go down into hell. Had he lived, we had hope that he still, somehow, might have turned from his wicked ways and come to the Lord, but his time had run out and now it was too late.

The cardiologist stopped arguing with his wife, when he seen his best friend calmly walk out of his room and into his office to say goodbye. The cardiologist strongly argued then with him, that despite him felling better, he should stay in the hospital under observation, just in case his symptoms should return. But he then told him what had happened, and that he no longer had need of the sick bed, for the Lord On High had healed him.

His wife also then turned away, and with her son, left her husband there at the hospital, for she knew then that no matter what, he would not go out with them for lunch that day.

After his wife and friend left, the cardiologist checked up on the rest of his patients, and discovered the now dead man that had been forced under his care. He reviewed the records, and soon realized that he probably would have lived had he not been so distracted by his wife and son. His guilt was so strong that he never told another person at the hospital of what he had let happen, but he went home that night and blamed his wife for the man’s death. After that, the wife soon left him, and sued him for divorce, and received custody of his son.

I then woke up.

1 Corinthians 7:3-4 (1599 Geneva)

“Let the husband give unto the wife due benevolence, and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not the power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not the power of his own body, but the wife.”

1 Corinthians 7:16 (1599 Geneva)
“For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thine husband? Or what knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?”

Malachi 2:14-16 ESV
“But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth. “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.”

Colossians 3:19 ESV
Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.

An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.

Luke 5:24-26 (KJV)
“…I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house. And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.”
