Jesus and The Secret Place

Posted in Inspirational with tags , , , , , on December 8, 2015 by eliseway

Let’s look at how Jesus entered The Secret Place of God through the wilderness. In order dwell in that place in God, we must go through some trials and tribulations by continuing to seek God in spite of. Jesus, being the Son of God, didn’t automatically receive the power of God and the anointing without the suffering temptations and trials. The purpose of any storm is to push you toward seeking God more not a bottle, not a person and not material things. Jesus was tempted for 40 days and 40 nights in order to receive the fullness of God’s Glory to perform signs, wonders and miracles. Once Jesus entered that place in God. He was unstoppable in doing the works of the Lord and always kept a spirit of humility even knowing He was the Son of God. Jesus never acted in pride nor arrogance with all the power and anointing He possessed. Jesus remained in the secret place of the Most High and was able to carry out the plan of God to save  mankind from destruction. Once you have entered that place in God, there’s maintenance upkeep that is vital to keep the Glory of God flowing in your life. When you seek and find God, it is crucial to dwell where He is on a continual basis. There are people, things and habits that God will remove from your life in order for you to remain in this place. The Secret Place of God is revealed to those who earnestly seek Him out because of their utmost desire to have more of God. God opens doors to His Glory when He sees the seeking of Him is for a love to know Him more and be near Him more. People don’t seem to realize that God knows who wants the more of Him or the more what He can for or through them. Those who are in the secret place are hidden by the cares of the world and not governed by their five senses anymore. There eyes go beyond the visible realm to unseen and allow God to truly direct their paths. God is then able to truly order our steps and develop us into the greatness that lies within us. There is such comfort in the Secret Place of God that you will become more watchful of what or who tries to sift you out of the place in God. The Enemy will continue to sift us out of that the secret place through attacks, temptations, setbacks and trials in order to wearing us out into giving up on God to bring us through. When you’re in that secret place, God is able to reveal His mysteries and understand the directions He gives you concerning your life. There’s also strength in staying in the Secret Place and restoration comes over you for God is helping you to recover from every suffering event that cause your mind, body, and spirit to wear down. In addition, there’s a place in God where He wants to bring you to where He dwells including The Glory that He places on your life through your constant pursuit of God. The art of seeking God comes with the utmost place of God in order to walk in the fullness of God’s Glory. There’s so many dimensions and places in God that we have yet to discover. It is an important note to consider that reveals and rewards those who diligently seek Him on a continuous basis. (Hebrews 11:6). The more you continue to seek God, the more He comes to reveal Himself while rewarding you with His Anointed, Glory and Power.

The Secret Place

Posted in Christian fantasy fiction with tags , , , , , , , on November 12, 2015 by eliseway

After discovery of my purpose in my thirties, I have to the realization that God continues to desire for use to go into deeper realms and dimensions in Him. Once I had a desire to know the more of God, the pursuit became a passionate discovery of know who God really is and how He desires for us to seek Him. There’s a secret place in God that He wants us to dwell and remain in order to fulfill the divine purpose He has for us to accomplish. It is a place that demands a continuous, constant and intense prayer life. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). The more you seek God, the more God takes you beyond all your five senses to a place that eyes have not seen nor ears have not heard…..”(! Corinthians 2:9). Since it is a secret place meaning it must be sought after and pursued until it is found. God was us to seek Him until He is found and reveals His Glory to you. Let’s breakdown what’s in the Secret Place. In Psalms 91:1 explains the secret place in “whoever dwells in the secret place of the Most High God shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” This scripture explains that God looks for whoever or whomever whether it’s male or female to seek Him out. God dwells in a place that flesh cannot enter nor iniquities can be part of. People profess to want the more of God but think it is through works in the church or ministry. You cannot enter God’s Secret Place through works alone. Going through the motions of seeking God through the works of the flesh denies you access to the Glory of God which houses the anointing and the Glory of God. Just by coming to church, raising your hands, giving God the praise and responding enthusiastically to the Word of God does not give you access to the Secret Place. Doing works in the ministry and publicly through prayer, preaching and laying of hands alone doesn’t give you access to the Glory of God. These works alone are the manifestation of seeking God and abiding in the Secret Place. Works of God that bring no Glory to Him but glory to your flesh and ego are dead and unfruitful. This is why the Pharisees and Sadduccees never operated in the Power of God like Jesus did because they thought their works in the Kingdom of God granted them access to God’s Secret Place. If that was the case, why would God call it a secret place but a public place if it was so accessible to us. Then all of us would operate in the power of God and His Anointing in its fullness. Next blog is going to about how Jesus entered The Secret Place in God.

Spiritual Wasps, Sheepish Wolves, and Goatish Thieves in the Church

Posted in Christian fantasy fiction, Spiritual Realms with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2013 by eliseway

I do not like wasps at all because they are aggressive and territorial. Also, they like to sting as well  which is the main reason I don’t like them. One day, I was walking to my car through some grass and notice one of those friendly wasps circulating the area and waiting to jump anyone that came in the vicinity. I have had wasps circling around my car and ready to sting me because I wanted to get into my own car. Then I thought about people that can sometimes act like wasps in a spiritual sense waiting for the opportunity to sting you with lies, deceit, betrayal, indifference, malice or just plain evil. The thing about spiritual wasps is that they are territorial in that they want to dwell, rule, and control everywhere they go which can be your house, your job, your church, or even your school. If you seem like a threat to them, these people will do whatever they can to stop any changes especially if God is upon you and His Anointing as well. I’ve had several encounters with these kind of people and their stings aren’t as obvious as the insect but the side effects are still the same. Their sting  can consist of saying mean remarks on the side, confrontations that come out of nowhere, acting like you don’t exist, lashing out at you for no reason, and acting what I call slight and off. The way you deal with these people is through prayer and standing your ground no matter. 

Now let’s discuss sheepish wolves who are ravenous wolves who seem docile in nature by their appearance but are ready to devour and destroy the spirituality of every person they come in contact with. They act just like the wolf pretending to be grandma in Little Red Riding Hood acting like they are so sweet, kind and spiritual but with enough poison in their spirit to level a Third-World country. I realize that The Devil isn’t the only one that comes to steal, kill and destroy but people as well. You must be prayed up and have spiritual discernment to identify these wolves in your life making sure they aren’t in the devourment process with your spirit. One of these wolvish people can destroy friendships, make you physically sick, have you depressed, and not having the joy of the Lord whatsoever. 

Not goatish thieves are people who are grumpy, lazy and copycats for they like to act spiritual when its convenient for them or imitate another person’s spiritualness if possible. Goats aren’t friendly creatures like the sheep and will kick back at you if you rub them the wrong way. They do all the duties of godly person but their heart is nowhere near God nor the church. It is a form of godliness that becomes revealed through the Word of God because they don’t like to hear or receive the truth from God. These people walk around with chips on the shoulder, attitudes and act miserable even with a fake smile on their face. Since misery loves company, a goatish person wants you to join their grumpy, joyless, and miserable party. They get mad and will retaliate if you refuse to submit or fall to their schemes of stealing the anointing that’s upon your life. Just remember, prayer will help you discern and be warned about the company you keep in your life. 

 

Defeating Perverted Spirits

Posted in Christian fantasy fiction with tags , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2013 by eliseway

Well, been a long time coming to do some blogging on my website due to many uncontrollable circumstances that seem to take away my time to blog but I do have some more fresh insights about spirits and how to defeat them. Any spirit whether it is the spirit of perversion, infirmity or destruction can be cast out by the blood of Jesus and rebuking them back into the dry places of the spirit world. It takes prayer and fasting to keep demonic influences from ruling and overtaking your life especially if they have been a stronghold in your life as well. Demons and evil spirits have assignments to rule and govern humans by any means necessary with the powers that they possess before they got kicked out of the Holy Crib in Heaven with God. The one thing you have to remember is that you cannot kill demons or evil spirits so those movies that show people killing demons isn’t true because they are spirits and you can’t kill spirits. The thing you can do to spirits is cast them out and rebuked them like Jesus did in the Bible with the Power of God and anointing on your life. Demons recognize command and only those who have taken their authority in God to know who actually has the power which is God to overtake any evil influence spiritually as well as naturally. You can’t go around casting out devils and demons living a freaky, perverted, and non-consecrated life because they are just going to bring more of their friends to torment and harass you to death literally.  When it comes to the spirit of perversion, the person who has this spirit may not even realize they are operating in perversion because the spirit is very subtle in making the person think that certain activities are okay to do because God understands that you have needs, wants and desires. The spirit loves to entice the flesh to engage in forbidden pleasures and inhibitions that people will want to act out in the natural. These spirits love to be written and housed in paranormal romances and books about other spirits having romantic affairs with humans experiencing what they call supernatural love. The assignment of the spirit of perversion is to possess that person in order to engage in perverted and immoral activities that lead to spiritual and physical death to that person. Even watching what we call soft porn television on cable can bring about the spirit of perversion upon someone who has been dealing with that spirit. This spirit is also the author of child molestations, pedophiles, and any twisted sexual fantasies like in the case with Jeffery Dahmer. It also is the ruling devil in homosexuality for it governs those humans who engage in bizarre, perverted or just plain weird sexual pleasures that is the cousin of the other sinful activity, fornication. Now when you combine perversion with fornication together, that person is being completely ruled and governed by their flesh. The flesh that is not controlled by the Holy Ghost will lust, want and desire anything it can get it hands on by any unholy means necessary. You can defeat any spirit by the power of God and giving up what is causing you to want to commit perverted acts.

 

The BackSliding Spirit

Posted in Apostolic Order, Spiritual Realms with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2012 by eliseway

I never really knew this was a spirit until I became more aware and informed about spirits that attack and try to attach themselves to God’s people to get them out of the Will of God and quit serving God in all capacities. It is so easy to be just a pew member that hears the Word of God and go home and most believers including myself have been tempted to live this life for a long period of time. Yet, we have all been called to purpose and destiny by God and once you have decided to follow the Plan of God for life by walking in your true calling, prepare to suffer and serve in the name of Jesus. When you are discovering and being birthed out your calling in the earth, the first thing God has to put you is in a capacity of servitude in doing the His Work in the Body of Christ. Serving God doesn’t necessarily have to be in the pulpit but in helping show love to others or simply greeting them when they come to church. Whatever capacity you serve, it will be tested and tried by situations, God, and The Enemy. The suffering part of living out your purpose in God comes with having to deal with disappointments, crisis, setbacks, delays, distractions, and hindrances that are there to make you stronger, more depended on God, and able to walk in a greater level of anointing(the Power of God) in your life. You will get discouraged, weary, and weak in the process of becoming the great potential God called you to be from birth and living out the assignment God has given you to do,  but what you don’t do is quit. Many people of God are quitting their assignments in the Body of Christ because of the issues of life and the cares of this world. People want to just stop serving God and sit down on the pew to be poured into by the Word of the Lord because they need a break, physically and spiritually.  Or they stop serving God and coming to church altogether because they want to do their own thing and not truly give up the hidden sins in their life. This is the backsliding spirit.

The backsliding spirit invades the person when they simply make the decision to quit serving God and not committ to their assignment or calling anymore. It is a state of laziness and pure selfishness because they are thinking about themselves and what they need to do to get their spirit right again to serve God again on their own terms. I had the strangest conversation with someone who simply told me that they need to focus on what they need to deal with and sitting back from serving God is the best way to do that. Now, I have been tempted to want to just chill, go to church, and do nothing besides be a spectator of others doing their assignment but I know that doing that would hurt me, God and others in the long run. My spirit was grieved for the rest of the day and didn’t realize until God told me I needed to pray cause folks that quit on God also quit on people who are still serving God. They can be people you were friends with for a long time or someone dear to your hurt who was so dedicated to God for such a long time and then all of sudden decide, I quit. This spirit wants a person to think about themselves all the time and what they need to do for themselves. They are no longer cognizant or aware of the people that love them feelings nor concerns because now they are hiding out from doing any works for God and choose to participate in some activities at church if they want to. Its now all about them and them alone.

What makes this spirit so damaging is that it kills your joy, peace, and zeal for serving and loving God wholeheartedly. Your heart isn’t totally in God anymore and you just going through the motions thinking everything is alright and God is pleased with your backsliding spiritual state. Why would I want to reach to the top in God and slide back to a state that God got me delivered from? The repercussions of backsliding is that all those demons and bondage you had in the past are going to come to you seven-fold bringing more of their friends to invade your spirit. Refusing to live out your purpose and you know better means you are also in a state of rebellion and disobedient which can lead to having a spirit of witchcraft, spirit of anger, spirit of bitterness, spirit of jealousy, and the spirit of pride. Everything that God had for you in terms of blessings is permanently in a state of delay and your spiritual elevation has been cancelled until further notice. All the anointing, power, and revelation you had from God will disappear and you will be in a worse spiritual state than ever before. You also leave more open doors for the enemy to attack your life like never before. This spirit destroys God’s people and effectively helps people renege on living out the Plan of God for their lives. The only way to rid yourself of this spirit is through true repentance.

True repentance means you apologizing to God and releasing everything that is keeping you in a backsliding state. Until this happens, the backslider is going to continue to go backwards spiritually and naturally until they are in a reprobate state of being totally rejected by God completely. You can be saved and backslide your way back to going to Hell if you don’t repent to God. Once you repent to God, then the restoration can begin but it wont’ be easy because you have damaged the trust that people and God had in you to be reliable, trustworthy, and accountable to do your assignment in God without fail. You will have to be a pew member for sometime not by choice but that you will have to work twice as hard to get back to the spiritual state you once were in before you decided to quit serving God. God isn’t going to let you easily obtain what you forsook because of you needing some time to get your mind right, stay married to some fool, or getting a break because you tired of serving God and His people. In addition, you will have to endure the process of repeatedly getting deliverance from things you were free from but since you backslid, you have more demons than before to get rid of since you decided to return to non-victorious state in God.

So, when you feeling weary, tired, or think that its not worth it serving God because it seems too hard, unfair and way to much suffering in the process, think again on the worse things that can happen to you if you decide to backslide on God. I know if I choose to suffer,  God is going to reward and bless me if I continue the race and not faint. Serving and suffering does pay off but are you willing to go through the process or just be a quitter? One thing about quitters, they don’t reap the rewards of finishing the race nor receive the prize for enduring the obstacles. Winning a gold medal in the Olympics means finishing not quitting. You don’t get medals nor any rewards from quitting. Quitting meaning you lose everything by default spiritually and naturally.

Python Spirit

Posted in Apostolic Order, Spiritual Realms with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2012 by eliseway

The python spirit comes in many forms in the Body of Christ that uses its venomous powers to suck the very life of God’s people. It is an ancient demonic spirit that houses itself amongst people who have open spiritual doors in their lives for satanic influence and invasion. This demonic spirit has existed prior to the creation of the earth and waits for opportune times to destroy God’s people through false burdens, worshipping idols, and iniquities of the heart. Anyone who possesses the python spirit tends to carry iniquities in their spiritual heart that they don’t want to release to God and definitely do not have the Holy Ghost. You definitely can’t have the Holy Ghost and carry this spirit because the Lord can’t chill with this strong demonic spirit. But the people of God can be oppressed by the python spirit and eventually experience a spiritual and natural death if allowed. The purpose of the python spirit is to suck the spiritual and natural life out of people especially in church settings to block the people from truly and freely praising God to receive breakthroughs, miracles, signs, wonders and deliverance from yokes of bondage. Now, the python spirit can operate in a more personal setting through people that are close to you such as best friend, relatives, loved ones, and your significant others. That is when this evil spirit starts the process of drying out your spirit man and taking the joy of out of living for God. You began to become more tired, weak, weary, and heaviness in the heart. Sometimes, the symptoms of having a python spirit around you can be more sicknesses and infirmities that may manifest in infections, blisters, and diseases. The python spirit works like the snake it represents in that it slowly squeezes the life out of you  but not like the vampiric spirit. It is not in the shape of a snake but looks like a tall man with darkened skin and evil eyes.  Evil spirits do have forms and tend to look like what they do evilly in spiritual and earthly realms.  The thing about this evil spirit is that it is overpowering and can pretty much take over the spiritual atmosphere of the church making the people dry and not praising God. It can control an individual’s life to the point in that they lose their zeal and passion to serve God and abound the assignment God called them to do. It is a sneaky, parasitic entity that Satan uses specifically and strategically to destroy God’s people and keep the supernatural power of God from manifesting freely within the earthly realms. The way to rid yourself of the python spirit is through intensive fasting and prayer.  You will have to bind the works and effects of the python spirit off of your life. Sometimes you may have to cut ties with that person unless you are married to them. If you are married to a person who carries the python spirit, you going to have to confront that spirit as the Spirit of God leads you and rebuke the spirit out of that person. The thing about this spirit is that it will lay dormant and hide out appearing to be gone from that person but it will manifest itself eventually when it feels threaten in its hold over the other person. Python spirit is very controlling and wants to dominate the person that they want to dry and deaden out spiritually so the anointing cannot flow in that person anymore. Now if that person wants to be rid of the python spirit, they are going to have to release every iniquity, sin, and bondage out of their life in order for it to leave him or her.
