Television…it’s not just Television anymore!

Over the last year or so, I have been noticing a disturbing trend in the television shows I’ve watched – or decided not to watch. Recurring alien/occult/apocalyptic themes are seeking to claim our attentions with ever-increasing frequency & intensity. Series that started out as interesting & entertaining suddenly metamorphosed into something else. Heavy-handed darkness & threat loom. The landscape changes, it changes quickly, and even more concerning to me, was that the same pattern was appearing in several different shows at approximately the same time. Among other things, the concept of a Hidden One, rising up from deep places & intending only horrible suffering, destruction & death for this world, was presented to us.

(In two of these television series, this diabolical entity was shown in similar human form & appearance, with the same basic physical traits & coloring. Just FYI…I thought that was odd.)

~~~

An example of such a program is the relatively new television series Sleepy Hollow, in which the setting for the nightmarish ‘headless horseman’ of childhood lore is resurrected. Only this Sleepy Hollow is a real town that exists in the present day. The thrilling promise of hauntings, however, yet remains, and we are drawn in.

Hollow begins with the actual resurrection of Ichabod Crane, (who as it turns out, had been a lieutenant in George Washington’s army) setting the stage for an intriguing mix of the occult with Revolutionary War events & persons. Crane knew & served with not only General Washington but Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross…it was really interesting. I was hooked in short order! and Sleepy Hollow shot to the top of my favorite shows.

Occult ritual & spells are lightly sprinkled throughout the opening episodes. But that changes. Magic & supernatural events begin to multiply, eventually gaining dominance. Apocalyptic horrors are ever at the doorstep, about to consume all.

~~~

Now…I was not unaware of the theme of occult symbolism, even possible ritual, throughout the seat of our government, Washington DC. Look at our dollar bill – what’s up with that pyramid? and the big eye? Come on, something is odd here!! Once you start noticing & researching things like that, the occult concept presented in Sleepy Hollow might seem vaguely palatable. You think, Hmmmm…and it might not be so bad if this concept didn’t, like a vortex gaining wild & frightening momentum, amp itself up to dismaying proportion. I began to skip watching Hollow, off & on. On the whole, it lost its charm.

~~~

Another theme that repeatedly caught my eye was the introduction of aliens/hybrids to human life & society. Some – like Supergirl & Flash – are benevolent & ‘fit right in’; others, not so much…my point here is, that we are being conditioned to accept aliens into our lives.

~~~

…so what we think of as entertainment, may actually be conditioning. What we thought television-staticwas myth & fantasy, may well be much closer to reality than we ever thought. I used to ignore such suggestions until, as I learned more, they made sense, and provided answers to so much of what goes on in this world.

It is suggested that forces behind the ‘entertainment’ industry have a chokehold on it. They determine what we see. This is done in order to dispel threat. That which is only evil is disguised as quirky (Lucifer, Angel from Hell), even friendly, so that we will begin to see it from a harmless perspective. It is anything but harmless. That which is/may be real is presented as myth or fantasy – for the same basic reasons. If we are conditioned or re-trained to accept dangerous as not dangerous, then, when the actual reality manifests in our world, we will be much less likely to resist. Some may even foolishly welcome these beings/practices. Do not be one of the foolish ones.

~~~

Now, alien/supernatural plot lines in television & movies are nothing new. My Favorite Martian, Mork & Mindy, X-Files, come to mind, to name a few alien theme shows from further back in time. Or ET, that little alien plaintively calling out “Home…”, his ‘vulnerability’ endearing himself to probably millions here on earth! (And of course, who could forget Star Trek and its many offspring…Jean-Luc Picard remains one of my favorite characters ever, to this day!)

But in years past, such plots were given us in measured doses. Now, it seems they are being vomited in our faces – I have to think there is a reason for this.

~~~

…so I think it is good to be aware of possibilities. In a way, like the Old Testament account of Joseph’s brothers selling him into slavery, what some intend for evil, God means for good. Insinuating their devious plots into our down-time activites has revealed an evil hand, and shown us how to mount a defense.

~~~

I do not swear off television. I do sometimes watch less, or different types of programs. Sometimes I really am able to simply be entertained, while other times I catch frequent glimpses of a ‘hidden’ message. I am forewarned & on guard.

And my trust is in God.

Releasing of Good Things

Lately I have been wondering, what should I write about next? I get so many glimpses of topics, insights & ideas, but I hesitate to just dive in & start scrambling out an article. I want to be focused.

…and so I have just settled on a word that I believe I heard from the Lord right after President Trump’s inauguration. That word has been confirmed to me, it seems, coming in from an unexpected direction. I am going out on a limb here…but I wouldn’t, if I didn’t think I was on the right track.

~~~

TREMENDOUS opposition rose up against Donald Trump, before & after his election, to prevent him from first, even being elected and then secondly, actually being sworn into office. But he was…and he was. Opposition continues its resistance to his position, his actions & his policies. Some of that opposition is just part of our American process, but not all of it. (My personal guess is, not most of it.)

Information abounds – some supposedly fake, some ‘leaked’ – on the world wide web, and it’s hard to know what’s what. How many levels deep, and at the very bottom (or perhaps I should say top), who is pulling each string, in releasing ‘information’, breaking ‘news’? But this stuff is out there, and unless one buries their head in the sand, it’s hard not to hear/see at least something. And the ‘somethings’ I’ve seen have caused me to believe that insidious actions are still being attempted by the overthrown parties, to subvert the Trump administration & its outcomes. Actions ‘outside the camp’ so to speak.

~~~

NONETHELESS the Trump campaign was victorious. Immediate Presidential decisions & actions were and will be released. Granted, resistance was triggered…but my point is, there was a victory and there was a release.

~~~

I believe that release from battles & circumstances will also be seen & felt Body-wide, throughout the Body of Christ and perhaps even in the lives of some not in/not yet in the household of faith. The powerful battles waged to prevent the Donald Trump victory, were not only waged on a national/Presidential level. God was/is very much involved in the Trump conflict, and I think that conflict is a representation of a universal/celestial one. Whether we believe in God or not, we are in it. “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” (William Shakespeare / Hamlet Act 1. Scene V) And so I think that on many levels and in many areas of life, there will be breakthroughs & releases into more freedom & more fulness of well-being. Maybe, at first, just in small things. Look for them…

In ushering in the Trump Presidency, God in Christ broke a mighty stronghold. It goes far beyond what we can see.

Post-Inauguration…Rising out of the Ashes

In this post-inauguration upheaval, with at times worse turmoil than during the campaign itself, I find I am depleted. I can barely look at my emails, or online news, ‘journalism’, & updates. I cannot see anymore ‘breaking news’ pieces about yet another crisis, riot, protest, or President Trump-hater. I cannot bear it.

But…it is still there.

~~~

Up until right about now, I was in the fray, ‘campaigning’ for our President on Twitter, Facebook & Google +1. Getting involved in conversations, leaving comments, posting memes, photos & articles…but I am done, it seems, now. The die has been cast. God is at the helm along with President Trump, so I feel that I can step back & leave things in those capable hands/Hands. Which is a reprieve I welcome, because I have very little starch left in me. Other than continuing in prayer for this new President & his administration, I am laying down the rest of it.

~~~

…so what next, though?

Recently a preacher I trust made the statement that Jesus is so easily ‘set aside’ in favor of the latest trend in the Body of Christ/the church or…you guessed it, current events. That pricked a little when I heard it. But too many times I have been aware of just how much of my time gets sucked up by online activity involving just that, i.e., ‘keeping up’ with the political news of the day. For me, it has often been like gorging on sickening food. And, one gets addicted! Am I right? I don’t think it’s a habit that one can easily lay down…and maybe some of us don’t have to, even maybe shouldn’t, depending on one’s calling…but I am being called elsewhere now.

At the end of it all, we will find Jesus. All the rest of this life is really about Him, and the opposition to Him. EVERYTHING victorious, that we have seen & are seeing in the Donald Trump Presidency is by His hand, and going forward, it will be the same.

Jesus is at work here. A very recent prophetic word, given to my go-to prophetess Lana Vawser, reveals that an ‘Elijah & the prophets of Baal showdown’ is going on right now over the United States. “All of hell is frantic over what I am doing in the United States because the breakthrough taking place in the nation is releasing the DOMINO EFFECT BREAKTHROUGH into other nations all across the world. My plan and picture is so much bigger than every one can see. The redemption, healing, freedom, increase and breakthrough that I am orchestrating and bringing into the United States is going to flow like a river and into all over nations in the earth.”  (https://lanavawser.com/2017/02/i-had-a-vision-and-i-saw-ephesians-320-on-fire-across-the-united-states-of-america/) This is not the first time she has received such a word from the Lord, regarding mighty spiritual battles being fought over Donald Trump and the United States. And more trouble will come. But our powerful God, with the prayers of the saints, will overcome.

~~~

My point is that knowing Jesus is the only answer.

Some I know, not aligned with Him, are looking at externals. I can’t reach them. I cannot talk them out of protests, or their anger.  But I can get to know Him better. Abiding in the revelation of the only begotten Son brings it all home!  His throne endures forever. Learning of Him will equip you like nothing else. Get on the inside track!

Tolerance…at What Cost?

It was with deep relief that I read a news article  (http://rickwells.us/trump-plan-leaked-no-refugee-entry-for-120-days-none-from-syria-period/) yesterday regarding President Trump’s refugee prohibitions plan. I cannot state enough how important & how necessary I think this action is. I also can’t state enough how much consternation I have felt over the previous administration’s totally opposite course of action. It is confounding to me that anyone could have been in favor of not only allowing such a mass influx of potentially dangerous foreigners, but also actively seeking to import even more.

What were the motives here?

~~~

I have to be suspicious of any news event that suddenly erupts onto the screen or over the airwaves. You never heard mention of it before, then one day you learn that it is already underway en masse. C’mon!!! These things don’t pop up overnight. There has been veiled activity going on for possibly awhile; someone had a plan. Why did we not know about it?

For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (discovered).” ( John 3:20)

~~~

“…this whole refugee thing has never been about helping people. It’s about helping people take over the Western civilizations, the globalist…objectives” says Rick Wells, author of the above-cited article.

Let me expand on that thought a bit.

…and begin at the beginning…where we once again find ourselves in the Biblical Garden of Eden, a pristine & perfect creation of God that is invaded by a snake. Now this snake was the most subtle of all the beasts of the field. A smooth talker. (Sidebar: this is the main reason I so distrusted Barack Obama from day one – he was too smooth a talker.) Because he was so slick, he confused & deceived the first woman, Eve, and through this deception, death entered. Death shifted the balance of everything! The poisonous die was cast.

My point here is that, there is a good situation/environment. Then something arrives to tarnish it, weaken it, corrupt it.

…plus, it often arrives in the disguise of something that seems ‘good’ but is not.

~~~

So we were presented with multitudes of refugees flooding our shores, being planted in our cities. On the face of it, we may see “…your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore…”. From that perspective, how could anyone turn them away, right?

But is that what this was?

~~~

Many do not know that an invasion technique used within the world of radical Islam, called hijra, employs refugee resettlement. Increase their numbers, strengthen & solidify, work Shariarefugee-resettlement-etc-hijra-_federal_immigration_policy_amazonbutton1-684x1024 law into the legal system…change the cultural, religious & legal landscape to their image. Keep this up until a takeover can be effected. The world-wide caliphate is not an imaginary fairy tale. It is the goal of radical Islam.

So it seems feasible, to me, to be suspicious of this kind of activity here.

~~~

There are other possibilities to consider as well – if a globalist agenda really is the driving force behind so much of what goes on our world today (I believe it is), the melting of borders would be to the globalist’s benefit. No separate nations, no sovereign governments… no citizens & no individuality, ultimately. Just  people being controlled (whether they fully realize that or not). Rights would dissolve as well. A one world government & ruler, a New World Order, will tell you what to do and you’d better do it.

So there is much to be said in securing & maintaining borders. Which would absolutely include processing, vetting, documenting those crossing those borders legally, to ensure homeland security. To prevent drug trafficking, human trafficking. Terrorism. Crime. Murder…the list goes on, you’ve heard this before. Within those established & maintained borders, you as a citizen of your own country will have the rights ascribed to you by that country’s laws. Your country will remain sovereign & hopefully solvent. It will not become destabilized & threatened by masses of refugees whose agendas we do not know, who will place I think great burdens on the societal infrastructure & economy. Which will weaken us. We do not want to be ripe for the picking, nor sitting ducks.

~~~

A question asked is, how far does a country go to prove it is ‘tolerant’? (In other words, to allow the out-of-control resettling programs to run amok. To allow weak border control.) WHY do we need to prove we are ‘tolerant’? And at what cost?

The false god of political correctness has been attempting to force Americans to prove how tolerant they are by embracing more & more inherently dangerous activities & conditions. Think this through. “Security experts warn that we don’t have enough homeland security agents to monitor suspected terrorists who are already in our country. If we increase the number of refugees from terrorist-supporting nations…” the price we would eventually pay, for allowing ourselves to be exposed to such risks, would be ever-increasing surveillance & loss of liberties.  “Who We Are As a People—The Syrian Refugee Question” (Edward J. Erler, Imprimis, October 2016(https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/who-we-are-as-a-people-the-syrian-refugee-question/)

~~~

Because God has graced & highly favored the United States of America by ushering the man of His choosing into the Presidency, Donald J. Trump, I think it may no longer need to be said that “time grows short for the American people to reassert their sovereignty…to stop the self-sacrifice which the political elites…have determined is necessary to satisfy the gods of political correctness…”

We are on the road back to wholeness & health as a nation.

Thank Him with all your heart!  REJOICE!!!!

President-elect Trump a Globalist?…I Think NOT!

I’ve seen a few headlines recently touting President-elect Trump’s complicity in a papal/ globalism agenda. Color me a little bit shocked! Of course there isn’t going to be a complete 180′ on MSM integrity of reporting…and the Trump haters are still out there hating, it seems…so I expect continued resistance in varying degrees. But this was a new one, for me….

My take on President-elect Trump couched no such New World Order (NWO) influence. He President-elect Trump.pngseemed to me – and seems still – to be that shining light on a hill. A main reason that he commanded my respect & support was in fact that he did NOT give off the NWO vibe….

…but I will admit, there were a few times (and only a few) that the unwelcome suspicion of Hmmm, I wonder…? invaded my thoughts. I didn’t sense anything, hadn’t read anything, it was just a thought that I didn’t want to be having. If you have had any exposure to NWO/secret society technique information, as I have, you know about the ‘two apparently opposing sides actually aiming for the same goal’ routine. Puppet masters deceive us. At these distasteful moments, I wondered, am I being deceived? Is Donald Trump actually part of that game?

I repeat – I NEVER sensed this. I still do not. But cautious skepticism is often a wise move. I moved on, though, leaving any…concerns…behind.

Then I saw a mention of now President-elect Trump being a Knight of Malta. Hmmph. Still moving on, though.

~~~

Venturing into ‘conspiracies’ reading over the past few years, I’ve come across surprising research that certainly seems to prove that United States Presidents are not only all related, but related through royal bloodlines – some dating back to ancient Egypt. “The Windsor-Bush bloodline reaches from the American presidents, back to British/European royalty, and it doesn’t stop there. It continues back through Roman emperors, all the way to Babylonian Kings and Egyptian Pharaohs near the beginning of recorded history.”

The upshot to this is the unpleasant possibility that essentially, America is still ‘ruled’ by the same country/countries from which we declared independence in 1776.

“By placing bloodline members on both sides of America’s faux political dichotomy, the old monarchs have guaranteed their right to throne under the guise of democratic elections.” http://www.atlanteanconspiracy.com/2008/06/presidential-bloodlines.html

~~~

I hate to say that all this makes sense to me. ‘This’, however, includes much more than a monarchical conspiracy to maintain its grip on power & rule. Why is this rulership so very critical to those involved, if these things be true? Below are my thoughts on this –

https://godhistoryandyou.wordpress.com/2015/09/23/once-the-anointed-cherub-but-now/

https://godhistoryandyou.wordpress.com/2015/08/21/lucifer-keeps-busy

https://godhistoryandyou.wordpress.com/2016/06/12/what-went-down-in-eden/

https://godhistoryandyou.wordpress.com/2015/05/02/america-the-founders-vision-2/

~~~

So I mentioned that I’d been seeing internet items suggesting that President-elect Trump is a willing participant in these global power plays. This video featuring Walter Veith (https://youtu.be/YtRBexcpFTA)  crossed my path recently, and I watched it in its entirety. I am watching it again, as I write this. The implications concerning our new President concern me. Pieces seem to fit.

…but every piece that seems to fit flies in the face of every witness or Word that I believe I and others have heard from our God, regarding Donald Trump & the United States of America. So it comes down to: whose/Whose side are you on? Who or what are you going to believe?

~~~

…so what I believe is this – regardless of the possibilities of President-elect Trump actually being a part of such conspiracies (and if so, my money is on unwittingly) (yet he seems WAY too smart for even that!) – God has the final say. Through those who seek Him & listen to what He says or shows them, He has declared a change. He has declared “”I WILL MAKE DONALD TRUMP LIKE KING DAVID, A MAN AFTER MY OWN HEART!!” He has declared, that right after the election, “In many ways in the next few months the enemy is going to attempt to DIVIDE even more…”  https://lanavawser.com/2016/11/an-encounter-with-jesus-regarding-donald-trumps-presidential-season/

…so that I wonder if even a video like the one above-mentioned, though recorded perhaps in an earnest attempt to share ‘truth’, may be inadvertently divisive.

God’s picture is bigger. It extends farther. If you have eyes to see, then you are already realizing that. And He is just getting started……

Things can Change in a Heartbeat: Give Jesus a Chance

 

Well, Christmas 2016 is over.

My holiday took an extremely unexpected – shall we say ‘turn’ – when I stepped outside onto the 2nd. floor landing of my apartment stairs. What I didn’t realize: how slippery it was.

Things happen fast.

My left foot shot our from under me like greased lightning.

How quickly – in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye – we can lose control. And there is nothing you can do about it. Even if there was, the whole thing is over before you even have time to do it anyway.

Oddly calm, I remember knowing that this was it, I was either about to die from tumbling headlong down the stairs, or sustain severely broken bones, maybe my back. Like that, it can be over.

~~~

Well, it wasn’t.

~~~

I don’t think that I was ‘lucky’. I think that either Jesus Himself, or an angel sent as a ministering spirit guided my fall or actually set me down, in a seated, upright position with the door sill right up against my lower back area.  I was not aware of any jolting impact. I noticed I was in no pain. Check. Nothing seemed broken. Check. Or bleeding. Check.

For He shall give His angels charge over thee…they shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.”  (Psalm 91: 11, 12)

Wow.

~~~

I had been carrying a box full of Christmas presents, which barely spilled out. They were okay, too…

I had not even had time to panic before it was over & I realized I was basically unharmed. After a minute, I carefully raised myself up, looking around and beginning to notice that the toe of my left foot was hurting. That got alot worse as the day wore on, witangels-charge_2h swelling & bruising, but apart from that and the onset of shock & nausea etc., at this moment I seem  relatively unscathed.  Some may say, Well, you still fell down & you did actually hurt your foot, so….what’s your point?  My point is that it could’ve been so much worse.

~~~

 

I imagine as the days go by, I will experience a continuing aftermath of realizations. Today, though, mainly I keep recalling my ‘flying through the air’ moment, no contact with the ground or handrail or anything…but Jesus. I know this is hindsight, maybe I’m wrong, but in that moment I think I sensed I was being somehow ‘held’. I just didn’t have time to consciously process it, so initially  I assumed the worst .

~~~

…so my Christmas Day was delayed for a while, I ended up on my sofa with ice on my foot. When I finally made it to the family gathering…well, the starch was knocked out of me, sooo….but I find that without all the usual hullaballoo – and nothing wrong with that! – I seem to be seeing spiritual reality with a wonderful focus and clarity. Today, I think my ‘eye is single’. (That’s not always the case!)

“Therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light.”  (Luke 11:34)

Over the years, so many times at Christmas I’ve heard those cliché statements about Jesus that I knew should’ve resonated with me but did not. I was doing my Christmas thing, ya know? But today – today I get it. There is nothing more important than knowing Jesus. The real Jesus. He is so unbelievably integral to all things that it behooves any one of us to give Him a chance.  Every day.

 

 

Christmas 2016…some Gifts aren’t Tangible

 

 

In years past, I’ve written articles relating to this Christmas time of year, or re-published  ones previously written to mark the holiday season.

(https://godhistoryandyou.wordpress.com/2011/12/20/about-that-christmas-tree/ https://godhistoryandyou.wordpress.com/2008/12/19/on-the-giving-of-gifts-etc-at-christmas/)

christmas-tree-fireplace This year – for me personally, it is a landmark holiday season – but my Christmas time post might not even include that much about the actual holiday. Maybe nothing…we’ll see…I’m not sure where I’m going with this…

~~~

 

 

In the comments section of one of Lana Vawser’s recent prophetic posts (https://lanavawser.com/2016/12/anxiety-attacks-attempting-to-come-upon-the-writers-and-pioneers/) concerning anxiety, someone explained that Jesus had shown her, in a dream/vision, to simply worship Him when anxiety strikes. Turn your back on the adversary, the enemy of your soul. My anxiety levels at that time were unusually high, almost at an unprecedented level, so I began practicing spur-of-the moment worship. When numbing, immobilizing fear gripped me, when my stomach began crunching from dread or anxiety, I began stopping whatever I was doing, wherever I was, and entering into my own ‘compressed’ version of bowing down before Him. I usually could not concentrate very well in these tormented moments, so I kept it simple. Very simple. And I don’t know that I worshipped Jesus so much as said “I worship You, Jesus.”

But it worked.

~~~

Why this is happening now, in the way that it is, and not years ago during so many times of prayer & supplication, intrigues me. What is different?

~~~

The Scriptures speak of all things being put under His feet. ( Jesus’ feet, that is.)  And the glory, the power, and the kingdoms belonging to Him. Do you want to keep some things out from under His feet & instead keep them under yours? Ya want some of that power for yourself? So maybe you aren’t willing to yield it all up…I am now sure I was not willing. And I cannot say if I even recognized that.

What I can say is, in declaring “I worship You, Jesus” out loud (even if softly) & in public places that were not churches or Bible studies – I FELT myself yielding things up. I FELT myself ‘coming under’ Him in a way I never had before. I FELT & I SAW Jesus covering me, and all that I was yielding. HE is the Possessor of heaven & earth, and all that is herein. HE is your Champion. He is gracious. He’s got your back…

~~~

Merry Christmas!
