Don't Give Up...Staying Positive In A Negative World ^

Posted on 11/08/2012 6:53:32 AM PST by virgil283

"If you haven’t noticed that we live in a negative world, you just haven’t been paying attention. These negative influences have been especially evident during the last few months of the presidential campaign. Each party has spent millions painting a picture of the worst possible scenarios for Americans if their opponent is elected. Not nearly as much has been spent expressing hope........Jesus was saying that the negative things going on around us—not necessarily in us—would cause the love of many to grow cold. ...Here’s another example. In 1 Samuel, we read the story of a terrible situation that David was facing. His father-in-law, Saul, was trying to kill him. He had been running for his life every day for thirteen years. His possessions had had been burned, his wives and all of the wives and children of his men had been taken, and his own men wanted to stone him. Not a great environment! Yet it says in 1 Samuel 30:6,

And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.

Things looked bleak. David was in a situation where everything in the natural said “Be discouraged and dismayed,” but David encouraged himself in the Lord. Do you know how he did it? He took the Word and began to encourage himself, and it was only a matter of hours until all God had promised him came to pass and he became king. If he had given in at that last minute, he would have lost. I see a lot of people today who stand for a period of time and then quit. It’s like there are limits on how long they’re going to believe God. You might be thinking, Well, how long am I supposed to stand? The answer is simple. You stand on the Word of God and His promises until you’re encouraged and it works. Don’t quit .........

Thank you for this post; I am reminded of one of my biggest problems: Impatience.

There is a reason for the fraud’s re-selection; I must believe it is God’s plan.

I pray for patience during this time and hope He hears my prayer, and will eventually show us the reason.

Thank you for the reminder.

There is no question in my mind that we are entering the beginning times. I prefer not to call them end times as they are not end times any more than a pregnancy is the end of life. We are entering a birthing period that is very painful, but necessary. Remember, you can’t put new wine into an old flask or patch an old garment with new cloth. You must get rid of the old as a person that is full of himself has no room for God. That is what is happening right now.

If we lower ourselves to the level of those we oppose, we become like them and we too will be destroyed. Remember Jesus’ words when He was being persecuted, “Forgive them Father as they know not what they do.”

Yes, there is global warming. but it is not man made. Just as giving a prayerful blessing to an evil person is like placing hot coals upon their heads, and just as the weeds in the wheat field will be burned, we will only lose if we too become weeds. Right now, the presence of the Holy Spirit and Divine Grace is stronger here on earth than ever, and increasing every moment.

Remember how Daniel was not harmed by the fire but the guards who threw him into the furnace were killed? Or Justin Martyr or Polycarp who according to the Roman court records, had to be pulled from the fire and stabbed to death as the fire they were place into did not harm them.

I personally expected Obama to win as the signs of the times were too strong and Romney to the rescue did not fit the sequence of events or timeline unfolding. I have sorrow what happened due to the difficult times ahead, but joy as it is a sign that we are in wonderful times ahead.

I grew up very, very poor and can live that way again. While I have gratitude for the many blessings bestowed upon me, I would let them all go today to return to communing with my Father. There is no choice. Having died and returned here, I can say that with no reservations.

Always remember, God is in control and everything is unfolding exactly as He planned. Years ago I was doing a lot of demonic deposession work. For some reason unknown to me, I can communicate with ghosts and spirits easily. I had a personal war on darkness. When I would encounter a demon or dark spirit, I would work my way up the chain of command structure, capturing each higher commander until I got close to the top. Each of these I would redeem as Lightworkers by pointing out the lies they lived by and helped them lose their fear, and then send them to the Light. After working to the top of the command using a single command line, I would redeem the top commander and have him call out to all those under his command to come forth and be redeemed. All hell broke loose one evening as there were hundreds of thousands of dark spots coming forward, each encapsuled in a bubble of Divine Light, all floating upward. Suddenly the room got freezing cold and there I was, face to face with satan. I turned to Michael and said, “There he is. You can get him!” To which Michael replied to me, “It’s not time yet.”

That was the end of my personal war on darkness as I realized that God was in control and what was happening was exactly what He had planned. Remember, God created the demons too. Things are happening right now, exactly as Peter described in Acts 2 when he was quoting the prophet Joel. It’s time. Hang onto your hat and keep looking up. We are in the springtime of soul growth and it is my prayer that everyone starts working in the vineyard prior to the end of the day.

“I can communicate with ghosts and spirits easily”

I loved everything you wrote and then you wrote the above and I tuned the rest out. We are forbidden to communicate with the dead. Remember, satan can be disguised as an angel of light.

As a catholic, we pray and ask the saints to intercede for us, but that is entirely different.

It’s not that I try to do it. It just is reality. Sad part is, I see them influencing many people who don’t even realize that they are in/around them, and are real. Denial of their existence is to be vulnerable.

I am a Bible believer. I refuse to fear anything except the possibility of not pleasing my Father above. Just as perfect Love casts out fear, fear casts out perfect Love.
