Another Soul Enters Eternity Posted on January 17, 2011

I have felt unusually down-in-the-dumps lately and I have not understood why. Today, I went to a Super Store whose name I will leave unmentioned, and at the next check-out counter I recognized three women of whom two do not live in my neck of- the-woods normally but I knew why they were in the area. The 90-year-old mother of the two sisters were in town because their mother had suffered some Type of heart attack.

I had been in the dark except for a brief description about this woman being in the hospital. We finished checking-out at the same time and I was very anxious to ask about their mother. When I did, I was given the bad news that she had passed away yesterday. I ate lunch with this woman in a semi-public facility a few times each week, and had done so for a few years.

I had been very concerned about her because she had behaved in an unusual way, other than in previous months. Her attitude toward me had changed, even though I took very good care of her. I suspected that it had to do with the fact that I had on a few occasions mentioned that I was a Christian and had made brief comments to another person sitting with us, along those lines. Even though these comments were made to other people seated with us, I suspected that it bothered her somehow. I believe that she was not “Saved”and she had developed hard feelings toward me, because of it, somehow. I am now convinced that The Holy Spirit had worked on her heart but she was resistant. I had waited for an opportunity to witness to her but she never joined the conversation when Christian related comments were made in her hearing.

My heart has been very burdened because of her spiritual condition and somehow, The Holy Spirit was causing me to be troubled over her condition because her time was short! This goes back to other posts that I have written about “Spiritual Gifting”and It was the gift of “Spiritual Discernment” that through God’s Spirit, had troubled me for this past week or longer! Now she is Gone and I am convinced that she is not in a good place because of her stubbornness and now she will have to endure an eternity of punishment.

I can not tell you how saddened I am over this situation and wish it had turned out differently. If you have anyone close to you who you suspect that he or she is not saved then make every effort to talk to them, privately, if possible because you may not have another chance, which was the case in my life. It is too important to allow an opportunity pass by!

But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

After this we strive to understand who we are and what we should do with this life that we have been given by God. This is of course referring to those who believe in The God of Creation. Those who do not, lack the basic moorings necessary to achieve true joy and peace within their lifetimes. Very few that do not receive the Gift of Eternal Life when they are young, ever do so later in life. This unfortunately encompasses most of mankind. They have what is called a God shaped void within their soul that can only be filled by God Himself. People try to fill that spiritual void with every conceivable form of fulfillment including all things sinful which I will not try to enumerate at this time. Most people deep in their soul know what sin is. God has given all of us a conscience that tells us that something is wrong. After a person suppresses these pangs of conscience over and over, their conscience becomes calloused and are no longer sensitive to their God given inner warning system. That is the way it is and no one can force an adult person to do what is right nor should they, apart from the criminal justice system. All we can do is witness to them and set an example of how we should behave and act like a Christian should act, in their presence and pray for them.

As for those who are true believers, we are to direct our focus onto The Lord of our Salvation and try our best to please Him through obedience which is empowered by the Holy Spirit who dwells within us. We need to seek His perfect will for our lives on an individual basis. We need to ask The LORD to reveal to us how we are to use our Spiritual Gifts for the edification of the Body of Christ. What is your Gift or Gifts? How can we be sure what they are? It takes prayer and the study of God’s Word to discover our Gifts and then put them into practice.

This is my attempt to share the very unusual life occurrences that The GOD of our universe has so graciously allowed me to experience, even great pain! I will also try to share what HE has taught me through my pain and study of HIM.

The Holy Spirit Today / Spiritual Gifting

Through years of intense study on my own as well as with some of the best Bible teachers available, I have come to the stark realization that I have been “Spiritually Gifted” with the “Gift of Spiritual Discernment”. It is the only way to explain all of the spiritual/supernatural things that I have seen including demons and the Devil himself. I do not seek to have these experiences but I now know that The LORD has allowed these realizations, for the lack of a better way of describing what has happened to me, to prepare me for a great task that he has already began. After decades of spiritual oppression with Satanic attacks through wicked people, in my dreams and in ways that I still do not fully comprehend, GOD has been preparing me for an even greater battle ahead. The LORD has also made great promises to me many years ago otherwise I would not have had the strength to continue with the mind boggling events that I have endured. I am a great threat to the Adversary who is the Devil otherwise he would not be so interested in harming me. This has encompassed the first half of my life to toughen me up for the later stages in my life.
The later stages began at the age of 30 in a very unusual way. It has been an even more challenging set of circumstances than the first half of my life and even harder to describe, although I will try my best to inspire you to believe even unto “Eternal Salvation” if at all possible.
After years of great hardship, both physically and psychologically, The Lord stepped into my life by sending an elderly man who I had just met a couple of days earlier. It was in the evening at a van customizing shop that virtually had no business and an owner who preferred to develop his country western band. This was his uncle. I manned the office in exchange for a place to plug-in my camper van and a place to sleep. His uncle presented himself with the exclamation that he had just had a “vision” about me personally. Even though I had been a believer in The LORD since I was 6 years old, I had not become grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Life had been too intense and I had not found anyone to mentor me from a Biblical point of view. This elderly man said that this, as well as previous visions included color similar to a stop light, red, yellow and green which told him whether or not to share the vision. My vision was green which told him to tell me. It simply consisted of three numbers, 7, 9, and 18, as I recall. He also gave to me 3 airline tickets that were for a flight that was departing in a day or two. I had to make a decision to trust God with this because it was around the holidays and the destination was Baltimore from Tucson and I was broke except for 8 dollars. I prayed about it and then on the next afternoon, I was on my way even though there were blizzard conditions in the Northeast USA and I would be hitch-hiking back. Thankfully, the plane landed at the Dallas / Fort Worth airport for a brief layover. I decided that it would be best for me to start hitch-hiking back from there.
This was the beginning of my choice to start trusting my LORD and Savior in a big way. I did not really have many other choices available and it was time for me to start to follow Him where-ever he led me by faith! IT was because of this major choice that made me became a major target for the adversary (Satan) and he has been relentless except for periods where he tried to get me to let my guard down. My thirst to study the Bible has been ever increasing since then! Great pain and suffering has had a way of  forcing me to focus on Him as well. It has been this great increase in Bible study that has helped me to understand that all of these spiritual encounters were directly related to Spiritual Gifts that The LORD has given to me and in particular “Spiritual Discernment”. I have seen spirits apart from  human beings and have learned to recognized those people who are controlled or have allowed themselves to become influenced in a variety of ways. There are certain characteristics that I will notice after getting to know a particular person. The Devil and his minions are very deceptive so a person (believer) needs to be very careful who they allow into their lives.
There are a number of other “Gifts” that are enumerated in the New Testament. These can be found in 1st Corinthians chapters 12 and 14, 1st Peter chapter 4 and Ephesians Chapter 4. and of course the book of Acts. You can glean other information about the working of the Holy Spirit throughout the bible. It is the Holy Spirit who primarily works within us and “Gifts” us as he sees fit for the edification of the Body of Christ.
I am not prepared at this time to delve into the other “Gifts” in detail because there is still much discussion and many differences in opinion concerning which gifts are still active today and even whether we can have more than one spiritual gift per person. There is one thing that I do know from personal experience and that concerns “tongues”. There are “Cults” who specialize in tongues as well as the Occult and this is straight from Satan who’s people also do this kind of “babble” which is dangerously deceptive. Mediums or those in the “New Age Movement and the Holy Spirit that dwells in all “True Believers”. There are many in the “Church” that are planted by Satan. They are known as “Tares” or false believers who pretend to be “Saved” but are not! To be fair, there are many who truly believe that they are saved but do not understand what it really means to have a personal relationship with our Creator! This group encompasses much of Christianity today! They need to learn how important it is to truly humble ourselves in the presence of Our LORD and truly repent and confess all of our sins and by faith receive the type of salvation that is a free gift and not by any works! As the prophet Isaiah says in his writings that our :good works” are like filthy rags in the sight of God! He will not accept anything except for the shed blood of His Son!

I am amazed by all of God’s Creation but dismayed by all of the evil that has corrupted it ! I have seen God’s hand at work in my life and because I am actively seeking His will, I am also a target for Satan’s attacks and have been attacked for decades! I am willing to share as much as I can to those who are honestly seeking the Truth
