WHO I AM IN CHRIST JESUS


This great doc was compiled by an ‘anonymous’ church secretary at a Charismatic church. It is for the Body of Christ at large to use . . . as well as anyone seeking life and wholeness:

When the enemy of our souls assails us with doubts and lies, these truths from The Word of God are a great defense as well as a great offense against the enemy’s schemes.

DECLARING, confessing one a day or one an hour or whatever fits the need at the time–is well worth it.

The Bible says that we

SHALL OVERCOME BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB

AND

BY THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY. These are great truths to testify of.

AM NOT ABOUT STRAIGHTENING PICS ON YOUR WALL


CORRIE TEN BOOM



“If I’m at your house

and I began to move from room to room

straightening pictures on your wall,

that’s commendable,

but if your house is on fire

and I began to move from room to room

straightening pictures,

I’ve become evil, and wicked

not choosing

to use my time
to save your life.”

I realize that I’m an intense person . . . with an intense personality.

There’s really never been much successful hiding of that fact. LOL.

And, certainly, I’m NOT one size fits all.

And certainly many biases of some readers convince them–coupled with my personality features–that I write primarily to stir up unwarranted to very questionable noise upsetting to Sunday afternoon teas, to the body politic and to sane net forum discourse.

And, certainly, as a watchman trying hard to err on the side of crying the alarm whenever the least bit evidently useful . . . I certainly earn a lot of “He cries wolf far too often” claims.

Yeah, I do expect readers to prayerfully sort out the warnings I write about and seek God’s face for what HE considers important FOR EACH OF THEM in THEIR contexts and for THEIR whatever follow-throughs.

It has appeared in recent months . . .

that a few to several or more mods and users on a number of websites . . .

have begun to intensify their efforts

to prevent expression of views

which they evidently perceive to be a hindrance to satanic Marxist globalist goals, values and perspectives.

I wonder how many readers would be willing to watch for such phenomena and report back to this thread when they see such things.

I’m particularly interested in what SORT of websites they observe such on.

Is it only on moderate to liberal websites or also on conservative websites?

Is it also only

1. in behalf of BRAZENLY GLOBALIST values, goals, strategies, actions, politicos etc.

or also

2. in behalf of moderately globalist values, goals, strategies, actions, politicos?

and/or also

3. in behalf of posts, writings, which could logically be construed as having nothing whatsoever to do with globalist values, goals, actions, strategies, politicos etc. but are seemingly generalized, blackwashed as such?

In #3′s case, that is, do mods and more globalist supportive users wail, agitate, hit abuse buttons etc. toward posts and posters who are logically to clearly saying nothing against globalism but are attacked AS THOUGH THEY WERE.

It is hard to discern in the current craziness of our Republic and our END TIMES ERA . . . just what is going on.

It is certainly logical . . . that IF . . . as many contend, we are ramping up to a full scale WW3 . . . that the psych-ops folks would be operating at full steam and full speed to control perceptions, minimize the effectiveness of truly conservative Christian perspectives etc.

Yet, it’s difficult in such complexity to discern and sort out with any clearly definitive understanding the parameters of such efforts, IF that is, actually, what is going on.

Soooooooo IF there are readers to these humble lines, PLEASE SPEAK UP and share your perspectives. I’m rather limited to my own without y’all’s help.

My own sense is that there may well be an intensifying of such efforts but I’m not absolutely sure.

Thanks in advance,

Da Ai Xin

QUAKES, NWO, UFO’S, EXOTIC TECH, END TIMES, PROPHECY


AM CONTEMPLATING

A NEW BLOG THAT I’D TRY FOR MORE DIALOGUE WITH . . . ON THE ABOVE TOPICS.

AM CURIOUS AS TO HOW MANY WOULD BE INTERESTED?

The discussion would be fairly strictly from a Conservative Christian DISPENSATIONALIST perspective.

IF SO, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT.

Comments are moderated so will take time for me to clear them before they appear.

DEADLINESS OF RELIGIONISM


Even in the Old Testament . . . with alarming frequency . . . God Himself had to upset the status quo . . .

Either HUMAN . . . RELIGIONISM had spread the rot . . . or they had just jumped straight into pagan and devilish idolatry pure and simple.

2,000 years ago, the RELIGIONISM rulers had reduced the spirit of RELATIONSHIP with God to

THEIR POLITICAL POWER MONGERING BUREAUCRATIC MAGICSTERICAL MANGLED AND MANAGED DEATH DEALING INSTITUTION.

EVERY RELIGIOUS organization of man has demonstrated an alarming percentage of the same tendencies whenever it exists longer than a year or so. Those existing longest tend to be the worst demonstrations of such horrors.

Denial of such facts of human nature and it’s accompanying habits is ignorance, willful blindness, pride polluted perceptions, devilish oppression or possession &/or some combination of perversities.

Of course, every self-perpetuating club of humans always is complicit to one degree or another in joining with satan to rationalize, justify, excuse, sanctify [in their own eyes], glorify [in their own eyes], prance about and parade such horrors as the best thing since Pentecost–particularly THEIR EXCLUSIVE brand of such . . . not only as holy–but AS NECESSARY FOR SALVATION.

Salvation is removed from THE CROSS AND BLOOD OF JESUS and saturated with ‘ecclesiastical’ elites’ edicts, pontifications, rulings and other varieties of their power mongering and exclusionism.

The IN-GROUP’S ‘distinctives’ become hostilities toward the OUT-GROUPS and transform into acts of holy ritual–glorifying punishment of those too hapless, unfortunate and ‘too stupid’ to be members of ‘OUR RIGHTEOUS IN-GROUP.’ And the stench procedes to get worse by the hour, month after month, century after century.

It should be small wonder that such is the case. The same thing happens or constantly threatens to happen between the ears of the blokes in all our mirrors. The pollution of sin in all of us works constantly to transform RELATIONSHIP INTO RELIGIONISM. And when we collect into groups, the collective sin forces in all of us tend to work together toward making of the group norms, labels and efforts another ungrand [from God’s perspective] GREAT GRAND PARADE [from man’s perspective] OF GILDED RELIGIONISM.

Clueless willfully blind idiots denying such are already experiencing the disasterous reality mangling distorted perceptions injected and infected by agents of hell. Those who continue in such denial and blindness become more deeply entrenched in and gripped more tightly by the same agents of hell. Possession is along that line, at some point.

Some may be haplessly inattentive to what’s transpiring. They are not exactly innocent by any means. Yet, they are not per se consciously delighting in going down hell’s road to wholesale RELIGIONISM. They just became entrenched in it incrementally like the frog in the warming holy water propped over the censer of fiery devilish self-righteousness fired by the brimstone of hell.

Such folks MAY have sufficient free will and perceptiveness left to recognize the rot in their souls and their mirrors enough to rebuke and fling off the robes of pride and self-righteousness and put on Christ’s humility, blood and Righteousness in earnestness and daily contrition.

Others have quickly become enamoured of RELIGIONISM and all it’s perverted allure of pomp, circumstance, exclusionist distinctives, !!!!CONTROL!!!!, !!!!TRADITIONS!!!!, fool’s gold gilded trappings, IN-GROUP mutual flatteries, excuses and rationalizations for sins generally and particularly for sins of arrogance.

Such folks tend to require a burning bush/ Damascus Road miracle to be rescued. Or else, a host of folks praying for their deliverance.

In my experience and observation, God is not frequently eager or seen to dispense Damascus Road miracles to such folks. Those levels of miracles seem to be reserved more for individuals genuinely seeking God and His Highest . . . though there-to-fore misguidedly like the Apostle Paul was as Saul. He had zeal for the God of Abraham . . . it was just stuck on the wrong track.

The latter cases of the slaves to RELIGIONISM last described above are not usually so much like Paul. They consciously relish in the trappings and pollutions of RELIGIONISM. They find the handy human rituals, habits, customs, distinctives of their IN-GROUP to be wonderously embellishing of their own insecurity and ATTACHMENT DISORDER fostered arrogance. They LOVE to prance about as priests of RELIGIONISM. They conclude wrongly that doing so IS RIGHTEOUSNESS personified.

They are off and running toward the mark of the low calling of deadly RELIGIOUS prissy pontificators, publishers, preachers, priests–thorns, brambles and mucky pits of hell’s worst eager to entrap the unsuspecting. The more victims they add to their IN-GROUP, the more glory they personally acquire–and the more pride the group feels as it gets larger and more !!!!CONTROLLING!!!! of more victims.

Various idolatries are usually a major feature of their RELIGIONISM. One of the first idolatries is of the bloke in their mirrors. Sometimes the first is a leader in the RELIGIONISM IN-GROUP. Or some historic personage. The idolatry can be the philosophy of distinctives of the group. Or it can be of some ritual, some initiation or some distinctive practice of that brand of RELIGIONISM–or all of the above and more.

Such individuals have an intense and way above average need to be above the average person, the masses–at least above the masses of those hapless folks in the OUT-GROUPS. Therefore, any of the features of their particular brand of RELIGIONISM which elevates them, in their eyes, above others–particularly OUT-GROUP others–is automatically seen as not only necessary but RIGHTEOUSLY GLORIOUS.

Sadly, it appears that past a certain point of such entrenchment, the larger percentage of such folks, if not all of them, are headed for the unglories of . . .

 

HELL.

SACRED COWS & ADDICTIONS THERETO


 

SACRED COWS & ADDICTIONS THERETO

Methinks there’s a starkly different world view between a number of Vatican Affiliates, some Calvinists, some Pentecostals . . . and myself.

Many RELIGIONISTS of EVERY stripe and flavor

are soooooooo enthralled with sacred cows, they build large herds of them and milk them for all they are worth.

They never met nor thought of nor fantasized of sacred cow that they could fail to adore, venerate, garland, caress, . . . Sacred cows comprise a major chunk of their life focus, interest, attention.

Quix, on the other hand, with different fingers firmly gripped around the ceremonial knife . . .

never met a sacred cow he thought should NOT be quickly sacrificed . . . repeatedly if the durn thing kept struggling back to life.

I can’t imagine either camp changing mentalities any time soon–though reality will foist a lot of CLASSES of sacred cows on quite a number of pyres sooner than many think likely.

######################

I have been immeasureably liberated into a greater depth, breadth, vibrancy, intensity, life giving reality in my RELATIONSHIP with God Almighty

FOR EVERY SACRED COW a loved one, OR even an ENEMY, has managed to slaughter . . . in my behalf or even out of pique and hostility.

Certainly it’s been far better when I’ve caught one roaming my mental range and slaughtered it myself. However, I’ve learned that THE PRIORITY is that the cussed thing is dead. It usually doesn’t matter by what means or out of what motive.

Is it possible that some folks consider other folks’ . . . how to put it . . . objects of adoration . . . to be unfitting sacred cows . . . when they aren’t all that unfitting and may not even Biblically nor even in God’s eyes quality as a “sacred cow?”

Sure.

So what?

IF the thing is NOT in any sense (say 0.00000000000%) a sacred cow in ANY unhealthy sense, then there’s no capacity for it to be slaughtered as a sacred cow. It is existentially and spiritually UNASSAILABLE!

IF It is a truly righteously spiritual NON-SACRED-COW . . . perhaps merely a fittingly SACRED focus . . . THEN, IT CAN ONLY BE SECURE IN JESUS . . . TRULY UNASSAILABLE.

ANYTHING ASSAILABLE, MUST NOT BE SECURE IN JESUS.

ANYTHING NOT SECURE IN JESUS . . . AND WHICH HAS AN INTENSE FOCUS . . . PARTICULARLY AN OBSESSIVE, COMPULSIVE, FIERCELY-RABIDLY-DEFENDED-IN-KNEE-JERK-FASHION-FOCUS–THEN HIGHLY LIKELY, IT IS A SACRED COW.

THE ONLY THING sacred cows are good for, is quickly slaughtering and sacrificing totally to ashes on an altar.

Sacred cows are a hindrance to God in any individual’s life.

Usually, sacred cows involve a death grip by the indivual around their necks.

It’s essentially impossible to hug God while hugging a sacred cow. Guess which Father God prefers . . . no, REQUIRES?

AGAIN:

1. Some folks seem only capable of collecting, feeding, adoring, breeding, multiplying, milking sacred cows for all they are worth.

2. Other folks seem ‘called’ to slaughter every sacred cow they encounter.

Such diverse folks are rarely great travel partners. One is always a bloody mess and the other is always desperately looking around for sacred cow replacements.

IF Prottys treated 1/20th the number things in their even RELIGIOUS lives as a sacred cow that so many Vatican Affiliates hereon seem to . . . the Protty’s would be wailing, whining, throwing dust in the air and rending their coveralls a noticeable amount.

Even those Prottys with some suspect sacred cows running around on their mental property, tend to not get that wound up about them, compared to Vatican affiliates responses about their sacred cows. Maybe even when SOME Prottys have real sacred cows, they just aren’t that ‘sacred’ to them???

Or maybe on such a forum, Prottys just don’t think it’s very . . . fitting . . . to wail, whine and throw dust in the air over a sacred cow. Maybe they inherently know that a sacred cow is not very spiritually beneficial and don’t dare make such a fuss for fear of being found out???

Then there’s the whole Biblical thing about TAKING OFFENSE. If I understand such Scriptures and such a Biblical perspective, IT DOES NOT MATTER whether the motive of the OFFENDER is horrible, or not. God would have us avoid offense.

Personally, I’ve learned to be eternally grateful for even Itinerate Hit And Run Sacred Cow Slaughterers. They have helped me clean up my spiritual life enormously.

[Triggered in part by Mad Dawg’s comment about gratuiously causing pain to other posters by things said about their religion, religious icons, facets etc.]

. . .

True enough.

I *THINK*

you understand that there’s a difference between “gratuitously causing pain”

vs

other motives which diverse folks experience as pain

some . . . seemingly looking for an excuse to wail, whine, moan and fuss.
