The hidden half of domestic violence
How to have eternal life
Many of us have ran from things that we feared when we were kids. Often when we grew up, we found we did not need to fear most of those things we were afraid of. As Christian, we often grow Spiritually in much the same way.
When we were kids, when dad was around, we were not afraid anymore. Well my friend, if you belong to the LORD, DAD is ALWAYS around. We have no need to fear anything and that includes witchcraft and satan himself. You see, one thing that satan is most afraid of is the weakest Christian who is on his
knees...he knows that the SHEPHERD is also present too.
I have been in many groups where certain subjects were banned, We could not talk about them or even mention them. We could not talk about homosexuality but the Bible talks about it...We could not talk about demon possession. The Bible does. We could not talk about witchcraft but the Bible mentions it 6 times and it mentions witch 8 times. I guess for those groups who state they will not allow anything to be posted about these and other subjects, they would have a
real "holey (as in full of holes) Bible because of all the parts they cut out of it. We would not be allowed to post these scriptures even though they
are the word of GOD
Why am I posting this?
The Bible tells us:
1 Peter 3:15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness
I think this also means to be ready to show people why things are wrong for us to do. By allowing messages on these things to be posted does not mean we accept the wrong actions, but it helps us show those who are into it why those actions are wrong.
Suppose a pastor refuses to preach about anything other than good things. Recently, I have been removed from yet another group because I approved a message on witchcraft. It was a good message pointing out that control is essentially witchcraft. The owner than posted that she would not allow anything to be posted about witchcraft. Well that would mean that these verses would not be allowed! THIS or THIS I approved a post in a group titled "Breaking the Spirit of Control" This need to control is based upon witchcraft and I assure you that there are perhaps millions of Christians that are living a defeated life because of bondage to this spirit. It is the spirit of Jezebel. This spirit is one of the main reasons Shattered Men is necessary and this spirit is alive and doing very well inside our churches. The spirit of Jezebel feeds the feminist agenda. ALL of these sprits can be broken but we need to remember this and every evil spirit thrives in darkness. They want to remain hidden because once they are exposed, they can be dealt with according to the Word of GOD
THIS is why we need not be afraid of them and to allow these discussions in our groups. People need to be set free from the bondage they bring to millions of Christians. and we can NOT do this by pretending it does not exist or by refusing for whatever reason to allow things about it to be posted as long as the post are not "pro witchcraft" The post in question was intended to expose this spirit and bring it to the light of God's Word.
If you are reading this and feel you always need to be in complete control of your wife or your husband you may be in bondage to this sprit. There is hope, there is help. Come to Shattered Men and we will listen and help
(Not all witches are ugly)
I have personally approved messages in Shattered
Men that I knew were very off base Scripturally but I approved them only
when I could respond
immediately to give an answer as to why they were wrong. I do know that by doing this in one group, it literally saved the life of two people as a mother
was within hours of shooting her handicapped daughter and then herself God had other plans and because of allowing a post most would delete and answering it, she accepted Christ and is now living for HIM.
Have you ever knowingly talked to a demon? I have and this the actual chat with them but they were defeated PLEASE remember, our Lord used two ORDINARY people to do this, people just like you!
Please read this to see that demons and even satan himself have NO POWER over us.....read this to find out why!
One Sunday night I received and e-mail that said this:
Can you talk to me? Or are you busy? I'm not far from either going back to
my old ways of back magic, or taking my life! I feel that I can not win this
fight, but I don't know what to do anymore, and am ready to give up! A good
friend told me about you all, but I see everybody is busy so I don't want to
trouble anyone with my problems! I will not hesitate to destroy myself if I
need to! I do not fear death, or hell or any of that! But I screwed my
life up completely! So why not finish it?
Read the rest
This would not have happened if we
were afraid to talk about demons and demon possession nor would we see
taken out of our lives
To conclude, we do not need to fear allowing things to be posted in our groups that are not Biblically accurate..|.as long as we can and do respond right away
to show why it is not correct. When we do these things, we will correct error and we will teach others how to give an answer for the hope that lies within us
as we are instructed to do in 1 Peter 3:15
I would also point out that I have seen several be delivered from satanism or witchcraft but it would not have happened if we simply banned these people
without talking to them. I do agree we need to protect our newer Christians and those who are not Christians yet but we can do it because we have a
personal relationship with THE MASTER !
