The Tares Amongst The Wheat
Just when you think, at my age, you have seen and heard it all God surprises you by letting you see one more thing that you weren’t expecting.
It’s this new thing I begin to sense in the spirit about two months ago.
It’s unrepentant Christians with sin in their lives masquerading as righteous believers.
Now I know none of us is perfect. We are all works in progress but most of us are at least trying to live righteously before God.
Who are these people? They hide behind keyboards doing drugs, living sexually promiscuous lifestyles and drinking too much. Then in that unrepentant state they begin to argue with you online. Because they have opened a portal through drugs, illicit sex and alcoholism you often cannot believe the mean and cruel things that a demon they have given open access to, speaks to you through them.
So now we have to be on guard against demonic attacks from so called believers as well as out and sinners.
Yesterday was the first day of rest I allowed myself to take in a long time. I have been working seven days a week between my new YouTube channel and doing my counseling ministry. I wanted a quiet Sunday at church and then home to relax. Alas Satan also works 24/7 and was not having any of it.
The night before it had started at 11:45 pm. I received a 3500 word email from a woman who had seen one video I made and decided to tell me all her problems. I mean all of them. She started out with her childhood. From that point until 6:00 pm the next day she sent me one email after the other compulsively. She was stalking me.
I tried to seek the Lord for her but God told me STOP, this is not a good situation. I told her a couple of things at first and each time she denied what God was showing me clearly. It then got worse and worse. She told me she had sought psychics in the past few years.
Bingo. I thought, “There you go, that’s where this demonic spirit took over!”If we see psychics, or as in my case while backslidden did psychic readings, we need deliverance. I was prayed over by a deliverance minister and then I repented and was restored. If you do not do that you must realize that you have opened a portal for demonic activity.
This woman begin to say mean vile things to me. I knew I was dealing with a demon. I have been battling Satan my whole life. If you want to slay demons you have to know their habits. I know the o’boys habits. I have even had demons talk to me through people whose voices completely change.
I tried to ignore her but she flooded my inbox with long emails. As I was trying to have one day of rest Satan decided to ruin it through this person who called herself a Christian.
I think it’s Satans newest trick. You don’t see it coming, after all they SAY they are believers.
Folks always see the sweet, kind side of me. Folks, lurking just below the surface is a warrior. Once that Christian Warrior is brought out of me the devil begins to tremble. I ended up telling her I would notify the police she was stalking me, and I told her she needed help. I had to repeat that twice before she FINALLY retreated.
In the past few days I have heard of terrible things being done and said to Christians by other so-called believers online. They masquerade as Christians but they are not living as Christians.
I sought the Lord about it last night and we must get wise as serpents. Matthew 7:21 says, “Not everyone that says, Lord Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven,” so we must realize that there are enemies within the camp that have been brought in by these mega church ministers that never teach about sin. They don’t do so because nobody wants to hear it so they cannot maintain their huge congregations and, as a by-product, their huge salaries and rich living. These folks think sinning is okay. They only want to be uplifted and ministered too but they don’t want to get sin out of their lives and don’t believe they sin at all.
That’s what we are dealing with folks. We are facing half-baked Christians that are still miserable deep inside because sin causes misery. They are not friends. They are enemies and we must root them out of the camp. We must firmly let them know we will not be their emotional scapegoats for unrepentant anger.
We have to quit thinking we can love them to Christ. These demons working through them feed off of sweetness. We must realize this is war and take our God given authority over them. Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to tell you exactly how to deal with them. Pray for discernment because if we do not nip this thing in the bud they will soon get rid of all of us and never will our great grandchildren ever hear about the consequences of a sinful lifestyle.

If you don’t get the infection out of a wound it never completely heals.
If we keep using alcohol, drugs, sex, food or love Addiction to escape the pain, that we are afraid to face, we never heal completely.
There might be a temporary healing, it might form a scab of sorts but if infection is still present, even a tiny bit, it will fester and cause us trouble and pain over and over again.
It takes a conscious effort on our parts to find out exactly what the root of our pain is. It takes getting in and staying in the Word of God. It takes sincere heartfelt prayer asking God to show us the place where depression and emotional pain took root in our spirits. Once we understand where that place of pain originated we can then face it and get it out of our life.
We have to make peace with all the parts of our lives. No ones life is perfect. Bad things may have happened but Praise God they are over now! We made it through them.
Constantly dwelling on past hurtful memories will cause us to stay stuck in a place where we don’t move forward because we are still concentrated on the past.
In order to move forward we have to face the bad memories and look at them fully. We then say, “Past you no longer have a hold on me. What happened, happened. I see it, but I let it go because it no longer defines my life. The Word of God says I am a NEW creation.”
2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version (NIV)
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:[a] The old has gone, the new is here!
You, beloved, have the power through Christ, Jesus, to overcome you past and to quit letting it have any control over your current life. When the hurtful thoughts come you choose to dismiss them with thoughts, instead, of the wonderful future God has planned for you.
The choice is YOURS. You no longer have to keep letting the past infect today or tomorrow. Let the wound be healed. Look forward now to the glorious future that can be yours. You know the past was a dark, unhappy place of defeat. Why do you choose to keep visiting it?
I feel impressed to say to you today that some of you are your own worst enemies. You must make a choice daily to walk in abundant new life. You must make a choice to be committed totally to putting the old behind you and daily doing what it takes to get you to your promised land.
If any of your addictions really helped you would not be feeling bad now. There is a big difference between numbing pain and healing pain. God wants you to know TODAY is your day to walk free from Addiction. Today is the day you and God find the strength to move on. You are the only one that can change things. Make up your mind to walk into your glorious future. Tell God you are ready to put the hurt and pain behind! As you do so door after door will miraculously open in front of you!

Turning against God, when something hurtful happens, is for some understandable. We have all had times when we suffered pain and felt as if God let us down. It was during one of those times in my life where I reached a crossroad with God. I knew I could go down a road without Him or I could decide to trust Him and go on down the road with Him. I fell to my knees and told Him, “I don’t know why you have allowed this but nevertheless you are the only one who truly loves me, unconditionally, and whether you never answer another prayer I pray again, I am going on with you!”
I remember this quote from the movie, “The Shack,” when I need to, I take it out of my bible and read it. It puts everything in perspective for me. God spoke the following…
“Just because I work incredible good out of unspeakable tragedies doesn’t mean I orchestrate the tragedies. Don’t ever assume that my using something means I caused it or that I need it to accomplish my purposes. That will only lead you to false notions about me. Grace doesn’t depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace in many facets and colors.”

I often feel like Jonah. I can relate to him standing on the shore of Nineveh and looking at all the evil around him and saying, “God get them all!” To be fair Nineveh was an awful place to be. Evil was everywhere and don’t forget that Nineveh was the home of the Tower of Babel.
When we serve God He often uses us just where we are, in the belly of the beast. He keeps us there until, like Jonah, we repent and decide to do things God’s way.
Maybe you and I feel like we are wanting to escape our Nineveh today. Maybe we have bill collectors, troublemakers, our stressful jobs, sicknesses, family and Satan working through these very people that are all around us. In the natural, like Jonah, we are telling God, “Get me out of here let me escape to another town, another country, ANYWHERE God but here!”
Yet, like Jonah, God has a job for us to do in the midst of all these troubles. He wants us to witness to these people by showing them that through faith in the living God things can be better just where we are, right in the place we want so badly to escape.
When nothing is moving forward for you and you feel stuck consider the fact that God has a job to do, through YOU, right where you are. Once that job, whatever it is, is complete, then and only then, will God move you out.
So what can you do? Surrender. Yes, it’s that easy. Decide that, like Jonah, the quicker you surrender your will to His will, the quicker God will move you out of the current unpleasant situation you are in.
I often compare being in unpleasant situations to a caught fish, struggling to try and get off the hook the fish wildly trashes about. It’s all to no avail because that fish is not getting off that hook until the fisherman takes him off.
Surrender, be still and relax. You will be removed from these people and the unpleasant situation when God wants you to be removed. Be okay with that by living in the moment.

Do you ever get mad at God? I hate to admit it, and maybe I wouldn’t have admitted it until I read a blog entry by someone who used to write a Christian blog and no longer does. One of the reasons they listed is because they are, or were, mad at God.
Now I could get all judgmental and say, “This person is going to hell for being mad at God!” I might say anything or might have said anything prior to God helping me bring my tongue under control.
However, instead, I didn’t judge the person because I understand that sometimes in the life of a dedicated to God person, we are going to get mad at God. If you don’t understand that you will before your walk with God is through.
In my case my life went to hell in a hand basket after a terribly unfair situation. I mean a REALLY unfair situation! Everyone I knew realized how unfair it was and how horrible our lives had become because of a mistake by a doctor and a hospital. There was no mistaking that their mistake had ruined our lives. So we took these negligent people to court and as unbelievable as it sounds we lost the case. Because we lost the case the house we were leasing with an option to buy was lost too. Our credit was ruined as a result of medical bills and now we were about to be out of the streets because the landlord refused to deal with us now that it looked like we couldn’t afford the house. He was rude, mean, and demonic and things went bad quickly. We had planned to buy the house and so had no money saved up and had to borrow money to move from high interest loan companies. There have been days we have had nothing but rice to eat but we make those payments on time. I have three payments left of 350.00 a piece and we live on fixed incomes.
God promised us that we would have justice. We were treated unfairly and we believed, and still do, that we should have won that lawsuit. But we didn’t.
My husband, due to his injury, couldn’t lift our furniture and neither could I. We literally ended up selling at least half of our belongings so that we could have the money to hire a mover. We found another rental home. The rent was higher then where we were but there were only two houses for rent in our small town at the time, and the other one was two stories. It wouldn’t have worked with my husband’s injuries.
At first I was so busy selling things, and getting paperwork together to try and get loans that I didn’t have a moment to think. I was on automatic pilot. When we finally got in our new rental it was weeks before we were relaxed enough to think about our situation. I had to sell almost all my dishes and glassware and had two coffee mugs left. One for Chuck and one for me and one day one slipped out of my hand and fell and broke. It was then that I too broke down.
I cried for hours. I lifted my hands to God and told Him that I was so mad at Him! “Why did you do this to us God,” I cried. I told him of all the things we had done for others during our life of ministry and the rest of our lives too, since we dedicated them to Him.
“I don’t understand you God? You know this isn’t fair and you know that we are flat broke with nothing at our age to show for our lives,” I said angrily. Bottom line is I let God have it.
Then as I cried myself out to a whimper and lay down on my bed exhausted, God begin to speak to me of His love for me. He told me that it’s not over and that He would not break His promise to me to have my own home again someday. But then I saw that the real culprit was Satan. God spoke to me that Satan was desperate because we had so many plans for that money that involved God’s people! Satan put people in that jury box that were cold hearted and eager to see us suffer because it was the only way he could stop all the good that was going to come from the money we needed.
It made sense. Our case is at the State Supreme Court now and they are hearing it. I don’t know how it will turn out but I don’t care anymore.
I began to see that I had put too much emphasis on money and not enough on God. I shouldn’t have thought about it at all and remained dependent on a loving father who saw to it that we still have a roof over our heads and gave us the strength to keep going day after day.
I apologized to God because I realized that our relationship with God is not a human relationship. Human relationships break down when we often don’t feel like we get what we need from them. We think, “If he or she loved me they would have done this or that for me.” But our relationship with God is a covenant. He never stops loving us, even when we do get mad at Him. It’s a love that is meant to be everlasting because He chose us. He knew who would be His from the beginning of time. That is a love that is supernatural. It’s a love that lasts through eternity. He is always on our side, and He promises to make something good out of our lives and restore the years the locusts have eaten away.
Any human relationship can and will end. Either through natural death or God only knows what. God’s love will never fail us.
Satan was laughing and dancing gleefully the day I threw myself on the floor and confronted God. I know that now and it breaks my heart. I was wrong. I realize now, more then ever, when you are working for God you are a prime target. The sooner Satan can make you mad enough to turn against God, the better for Him it is. The less people you can minister too the better it is for Satan. This is war. We have to put on armor and understand the enemy.
So get mad at God if you must, but don’t stay mad. Moses questioned God, Abraham questioned God and many others have too.
It’s okay to get mad, but it’s time to ask forgiveness of Him and restore your relationship. He’s waiting for you in the Garden! Meet Him there and make up with Him!
I hate it when someone I believe in disappoints me. You work with someone, pray for someone, study the Word with him or her, and counsel him or her and then when you least expect it they are back in the gutter of life. We so expected that something we said would have stuck. We hoped and prayed that God would have given them a realization, like He did for some of us, that He hung on a cross, bloody and beaten to shreds, because of His deep love for us. We hoped that realization would have taken root and kept them strong for Jesus. Perhaps it wasn’t their time, or perhaps they were never really saved and just playing a game for what they could get out of it.
I am not saying that we shouldn’t be expectant. Of course we should always expect the best from those we loved. But we must remember that they are human beings, with imperfection, just like we all are.
Jesus expected his disciples to do their best. When they fell asleep the night before his crucifixion and left him alone, he felt awful, “He said to them, “Could you not stay awake with me?” But He knew that they were who they were. They were men in suits of flesh. The soul was willing but their flesh was weak.
God has used situations where people have let me down in many ways. First He has taught me that the perfect friend, pastor, spouse and relative does not exist. He has used these times of disappointment for me to cling even closer to Him.
This I know without a doubt. Jesus does not disappoint us. He is who He says He is, and He does what He says He will do.
As Christians the Holy Spirit is always with us to comfort us when a human being lets us down. He is there; too, to give us enough strength to get through situations by ourselves when someone we counted on for help has let us down.
So many people miss the boat when it comes to helping others. We are, as believers, to be reaching out to others, not constantly looking for someone to help us.
We have to keep focused on the good times Jesus promised us. We also have to be realistic. I don’t care who you are there will be hard times in your life and unpleasant people who are disagreeable. We should not quit pouring into the lives of others just because of a few who disappoint us.
People who disappoint us teach us how to be merciful. Can you imagine how many times you and I have disappointed God? Where would we be without His mercy and forgiveness for those times when we let God down?
So today, as I sense some folks are dealing with disappointment in relying on others who have let them down, lift your head up and don’t let it get you down.
God will bring others into your life that you will not be disappointed in. He will bring others who will be there for you through thick and thin.
Be glad you found out who the person that disappointed you really is. They are not the person they pretend to be. God is removing them from your life. Don’t hold on to them. Release them now so that God can bring people into your life that appreciate you and love you JUST AS YOU ARE!
