Adam and Eve Were Not Good Examples of Taking Responsibility

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth… (Genesis 1) but it wasn’t until Genesis 27 that man was created by God in God’s image and likeness. The story of creation described in the Hebrew Bible had all the right ingredients to be a story of love and success for an eternity but it quickly ended in the beginning of death because of lack of responsibility on both Adam and Eve’s part.

Let’s fast forward to Genesis 3. The serpent persuaded Eve to eat the fruit of good and evil… she ate and became knowledgeable of good and evil. Eve then persuaded Adam to eat the fruit of knowledge and so he did. Both Adam and Eve’s eyes were fully opened! Shame (for being naked) they felt.

None of them asked for forgiveness… both blamed others for their mistakes which makes me believe that both Adam and Eve had an external loci of control! Let’s examine…

And God said to Adam, “Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat. And Adam said, THE WOMAN whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.

And God said to Eve, “What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, THE SERPENT beguiled me, and I did eat.

Everything else is history ladies and gents. What is the moral of the story? We shouldn’t be or act like Adam and Eve. Clearly, God disproved their childish actions and punished their irresponsible behaviors as He did and should.

Rule #1: What God tells and instructs, we better do to the best of our abilities.

Rule #2: When we err, which is inevitable that we will, we are to take responsibility for our actions and ask God for forgiveness.

We can only wonder what the Lord’s response would have been if both Adam and Eve confessed their sin (disobeyed God) and asked for forgiveness.

The populist well know phrase once written states, “Humanity seeks its own destruction” had its origins in the garden of Eden.

My God, how great you are

Be kind to others even if they decide to go to war against you

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32. It amazes me how unkind human beings can be, the older that I get. I thank God for the much discernment that He gives me through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Evil, evil and more evil. It’s evil here, It’s evil there, it’s evil everywhere! As usual, human beings are seeking their own destruction by digging their own grave because of earthly greed and power trips. Is there anything new under the sun ladies and gentleman? Nothing new.

There is a war going on right now in the Ukraine. I’m not seeing much kindness, unfortunately. Both countries are a Christian nations! It’s a human tragedy, unfortunately. I wish that tragedies were brief and away from us all but sometimes the devil insists in tormenting us believers.

A former student of mine informed this past week what I had expected. Prior to resigning from a PWI, there were two individuals spreading unreasonable rhetorical remarks behind my back while I was in that school. No wonder why I felt that some of the kids were afraid to speak with me after a while due to fear of retaliation. Cowards…

The Lord has given me much charisma and God is my witness that I used in there. Do I need to apologize for having a godly gift? I’m not the awkward, fearful human being who desires to work in a Stockholm syndrome oppressive environment ruled by KKK like individuals.

Sorry…

I was kind to them… I forgave and prayed for them but behind my back, as I expected, these saints were not being kind and compassionate to me but God is father not a stepfather — “I left that school with a promotion.”

Hate, evil schemes, lies, oppressive actions, devilish behaviors… won’t take you anywhere. Vowing revenge directly or indirectly will only give you an ulcer and make you sick. Choose to love others and stick to the biblical principles. It’s much healthier for your soul.

Lack of compassion and the use of manipulation of others for self gain or defense are two traits in people that I can’t stand especially when I witness such events or experience them myself. When some decide to isolate others, they are technically isolating themselves! Lack of kindness is likely to backfire! Choose God’s laws and love others, no matter the circumstances.

At least try it! If they say no, then you live but try it first. Even in a war zone… these are not my words but the words of the Lord.

The Hidden is Revealed When The Lord Intervenes

Nothing can be camouflaged when God shows His glory. Human strategies are nothing more than mere blind chess moves against an invincible and giant chess master on the move. The power of the almighty reveals itself in the right place at the right time to show us all who is in charge.

The transparency of God’s plans forbid feel more like a visible collection of bright stars blinking repeatedly right in front of our naked eyes. It can’t be more clear to me. I know exactly what my call in life is — spread the world of God in education! Even though we all sin.

We are no different than bulls and goats in some respects, “or it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins” Hebrews 10:4. You and me? We are minuscule in contrast with the king of kings. Fortunate are those who understand this fact and don’t strive to be God in their lifetime but look for the signs that God shares for you sake.

Listen carefully to this: God’s future for you is revealed when you least expect! It is sometimes revealed under the most unlikely circumstances, over lunch, and very often. God has a sense of humor, ladies and gentleman. His power is eternal!

“”For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” Romans 1:20.

Brethren, never lose the faith in God no matter what may happen to you, strive to get closer to God and wait for God’s revelation in God’s time not yours for your life. Love God about everything.

It’s your duty. It’s my duty.

Predators Are Nothing Other Than Demons

In the Bible, we learn the following about satan, as stated quite eloquently in the forehunner Bible commentary, “The great deceiver, more often than not, works under a cover of darkness. As a skilled and experienced hunter, he patiently stalks his prey, invisible to them. His night vision is acute, his senses much sharper than ours. He sees his prey when they do not even know he is there! Even now, he is stalking us. Lifted up in their pride, he and his demons had the gall to hunt God’s throne, but they were soundly routed (Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28:16-17; Luke 10:18).

Earthly human Predators, like Satan, are always looking for a way to maneuver their prey to a position of inferiority so they can seize their victim. Once the on-line predator attacks, his goal is to cause pain, very much like satan. How evil. I must add.

Thank God that we have a great Lord who saves those who ask for help. “The LORD is near to all who call upon him, . . . He also hears their cry, and saves them” Psalm 145:18-19.

This past month and a half, I have worked long hours on a report to help parents worldwide to identify how predators communicate with their victims in a variety of smartphone apps, the dark web and how children communicate among themselves as well as and other relevant information related to computer mediated communication.

I am shocked to discover how diabolical on-line predators are and how similar to satan these people actually act. The texting lingo and emoji communication they use is quite disturbing and to a high degree, communicated in codes that most people simply don’t understand.

Being deceitful is a characteristic that on-line predators have in abundance. The same can be said about satan, the adversary and the father of lies. “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44.

Listen carefully: Be aware of how your kids are communicating on-line especially with their smartphones. Installing applications like Bark is almost a necessity these days, in my opinion. For more information on this topic, feel free to visit my website and read the Almeida Report yourself.

“Incline Your ear to me, rescue me quickly;
Be to me a rock of strength, a stronghold to save me.” Psalm 31:2. To God be the glory.

Amen.

We Need To Admit Our Own Mistakes

Ladies and gentleman, let’s not forget what is written in scripture, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” We are going to make mistakes and sin but in Jesus, we are going to sin less overtime if we repent. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9

God is going to know if we sin or not regardless. We might as well do good and repent from our sins. Adam and Eve tried to trick and blame God for their pitfalls without repentance and it didn’t work well for them, right?

In Genesis 3:12 we are informed about Adam’s response to erring against God’s commands as it is written, “The man said, “The woman you put here with me–she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it. He blamed the woman, not himself and didn’t repent. We pay a price because of him – Death. “The wages of sin is death “ Romans 6:23.

Eve made the same error by blaming the serpent when God asked her “what I’ve you done?” and replied not blaming herself either, “The serpent deceived me and I eat the fruit” Genesis 3:13. Both Adam and Eve sinned and didn’t repent from their sins and paid a high price that we all inherited.

Moral of the story: Blaming others for our errors isn’t the best way to make anyone to be a follower of the way. I wonder what God would have done to Adam and Eve if they would have regretted their decision to eat the forbidden fruit and asked for forgiveness. They didn’t, unfortunately.

Strive to sin less. If you sin, repent and observe which consequences you pay for sinning against God. When you pay attention to them, I bet that you will start to sin less. God “speak” with us this way. That fear that you feel when the lights are off when you are living a sinful life goes away when you start living a Godly life.

God is clear with His message, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7. Consider living a less sinful life and follow the example of Christ. It starts with admitting our sins, everyone.

Makes sense? Tell me. I wanna hear from you. God’s blessings to you and have a great night. I’m waiting for your response.

I Can’t Sing to Bethel or Hillsong Music Songs

It is not just the lack of musical creativity, eastern mysticism vibes combined with pop and four chords all night long music with three arpeggios that makes me listening to Bethel and Hillsong music unbearable.

Christian Contemporary Music (CCM), besides being musically elementary and full of meaningless repetitions like spirit move we are ready for you, hallelujah our God reins, we give you the highest praise, and many more… is in my conception a movement not founded in solid Christian doctrine but instead in demonic entertaining free for all loving non-judgement ecumenicism.

I have serious problems with any music that is associated with Christian unity tied to church experience through music that incorporates occult symbols and profit in its core. The fact that Bethel and Hillsong music is associated with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), a movement with goals to create a fifth branch of Christendom, led by former members from traditional Pentecostal and charismatic churches, is as troublesome to me.

I have worked in an organization that was Pentecostal in nature. You don’t want to work in such institutions and what is as bad… The hypocrisy and the songs played at chapel in such organizations are mostly CCM songs sang by a multitude of students who have been oppressed by the shallow meanings of these songs’ lyrics.

Their Pentecostal churches, which constantly play hillsong and bethel music, are full of kids in their congregations due to the entertainment nature of their service but many of these poor kids leave the faith when they reach adulthood due to not learning a solid Christian doctrine when growing up and participating in music spectacles that some call modern Christianity.

Let me keep things real for you, if I may.

The several churches that we attended in Tennessee constantly played Bethel and Hillsong songs yet their congregations were spiritually dead and lost in Pentecostalism and dominion theology. Kingdom now theology, or the belief that Satan is in control of the world not God and that people will help God to get back control is preached in taught its life groups on Wednesday evenings… These churches can’t be from God, in my view.

Satan is creation. God is the creator and therefore don’t need man to help Him to accomplish His will. Singing Christian contemporary music maybe entertaining for many youngsters but raising hands, closing one’s eyes and repeating meaningless statements combined with Indian mantras played on the keyboard may result in shallow Christianity and even demonic encounters.

Say no to labyrinth prayer, visualizations, interfaithism, personal prophesy, feelings based discernment and as important… the repetitive music and mantras played by CCM artists. You deserve better. You deserve to worship the one true loving God not be a part of a pop concert. Be weary of music with known elements from non-Christian traditions if your goal is to grow in the Christian faith.

You might end up celebrating an anti-Christian agenda without knowing otherwise. Remember what is written in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge because you have rejected knowledge.” Be aware!

Faithful Christians and Gossipers Don’t Get Along

The word of the Lord is clear, “Do not go about spreading slander among your people. “ ‘Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the LORD.” Leviticus 19:16.

Yet, so much gossiping is spread in this world. Gossiping betrays confident and among many other things, it separates friends. “A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy person keeps a secret.” Proverbs 11:13.

“A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid anyone who talks too much.” Proverbs 20:19. I admit, I’m not a friend with anyone who gossips because the act of gossiping is condemned by the Lord. As a faithful a Christian, I choose God ahead of man 10 out of 10 times and landless and gents, you should do the same thing.

Remember the wisdom of the Salmist! “Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.” Psalm 34:13. Thou said the Lord. “All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me.” Psalm 41:7. Listen carefully to the following piece Bible scripture.

“knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossipers, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:28-32.

I once worked for an establishment where the former piece of scripture summarizes some of its it’s overall corporate culture pretty well, in my view. I refuse to engage in discourses with anyone who is arrogant, boastful, envious full of malice gossiper individuals. Quite frankly, I don’t have time for them other than conveying the word of God to them occasionally.

It my duty. It’s the great commission!

“Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20.

“Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool.” Proverbs 10:18. Stay away from them and those who only talk about themselves. “A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.” Proverbs 18:2.

Is there hope for a gossiper? Only by repenting and turning to God! Otherwise not really. Stay away from them is they resist the gospel. “Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, for he will despise the good sense of your words.” Proverbs 23:9.

Say no to gossiping. It doesn’t come from God.

Much Discernment Christians Need These Days

The world maybe getting better as far as medicine goes but to me at least, medicine is perhaps getting more advanced because of how decaying our overall health has become. No wonder why the price of health care goes up every year! There are people sick everywhere.

A number of our own perceptions may not be accurate or even true, sadly. That’s why much discernment Christians need to have these days in order to be afloat and prepared for the many curveballs they experience in life. We live in an evil world full of unexpected traps where the majority of people, Christians or not, pretend to be something that they aren’t for social acceptance. It’s true. Go figure

There are so many pretentious people out there ready to hide their own vices at your and mine expense, so they plan. I see the former and say no, unequivocally and firmly because God has taught me to be so.

In scripture we learn that our yes be yes and that our no be no in Matthew 5:37. Easier said than done for most, I recognize yet important and necessary in practice. Be weary of anyone who is trying to change your core values for their self gain or hide behind a curtain of shame for self defense. Your word must mean what you intend it to mean.

Brethren, pray for discernment and ask God to give you much understanding! “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God.” 1 Corinthians 2:12.

Trust is possible but discernment must exist and spirits must be tested, always with caution and care. Failing to do so will have unexpected consequences in your life, I’ve experienced.

We learn in Micah 5:6, “Do not trust a neighbor; put no confidence in a friend.” My first marriage ended because my wife committed adultery with our neighbor. It is low, I know, but it happened. Some of my biggest confrontations occurred with those I considered to be my friends. What a rough reality yet factual.

Understand: The lessons of the Lord aren’t to be taken lightly! I thank God for every piece of scripture and for having a great God everyday in my life. We all should, in my opinion, say and sing praises to the only true God. He opens our eyes and ears to much sinful behaviors in life.

Listen carefully: How much envy, pride, hate and jealousy do us humans have? God shows me and He protects us all. What a blessing, I say.

The Lord was serious when he said the former in Exodus 20:1-26,” And God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me.”

Oh generation of sinners, hypocrites, and evil doers! Some who hide themselves behind a curtain of shame for self gain at the expense of the innocent are only digging their own grave! Shame be on you fake believer who claim to be of light yet has a heart in Sheol where the dead lives.

Be aware of the evil that exist in the world and
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.always, in every circumstance, test the spirits.” 1 John 4:1. It’s wise and necessary.

Practice discernment! Ask the Lord for more! He is a grateful God who provides to us much wisdom and discernment. Ask and it shall be given to you… seal and you shall find! These were the words of Jesus in the sermon on the mount. Believe in faith! And never forget…

Be aware about the nature of the enemy, “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.” 2 Corinthians 11-15.

What is not from God is from the devil. “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” Matthew 10:16. Be aware, “See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8.

Pray for discernment. Understand people and in all things, test the spirits. That’s what the Lord tells us to do in the Bible. Why should we do any different? God is all powerful and wise. Listen to Him and live. Ignore His teachings and be prepared to die. Christians, wake up.

Blessed are the Meek, the Innocent at Heart for They Shall See God

On the sermon of the mount, perhaps Jesus most well known sermon in then Christian Bible, He teaches us the following godly lessons written in the book of Matthew.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad,because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5-7.

Being meek, or the act of being quiet and gentle, is shared by God to be the formula to inherit the earth, interpreted as a means to those who sustain earthly power will inherit the kingdom of God. The pure innocent of heart, they shall see the living God.

Clearly, being meek and having innocence in our hearts are two qualities that God is looking for us to have here on earth in order to obtain eternal salvation. I believe that, not just because of what Christ has taught us in the sermon on the mount but due to Christian logic.

Can you imagine anyone being in heaven with a defiant attitude towards the authority of God or with a heart of malice? I can’t. Let’s not forget that the former were some of the reasons why Lucifer was expelled from the heavens, along with pride.

The message is clear cut to me — we must leave this earth with much meekness on us and with an innocent heart. The challenges are for real because this world is full of arrogant insubordinate people with much evil in their hearts. The workforce, as an institution in itself, has proven to me to not be any different than the quarrels that we witness in so called off day life.

Be quiet, gentle, follow the rules and with much innocence, love your neighbor as yourself. This is how the Lord wants us to live.

Asmodeus is in Action Between the Hours of Midnight and 3:00am

It is between the hours of midnight and three in the morning that weak Christians and pagans join in celebration of human sensuality appreciation with much extravagant displays of uncontrolled worldly wealthy waste in nightclubs and many alcohol driven sexual gatherings and parties all across the globe.

The devil of sensuality and luxury, also known as asmodeus or the creature of judgement, is joined by many demonic principalities to make war, along with evil and malicious spirits, in the life of Christians with the goal of help condemning the sons and daughter of the living God for their sins.

In Brazil in general and Rio de Janeiro in specific, midnight is when the little hells of the well known Copacabana beach prostitution district opens to sinners of all nationalities and ages everyday with peak attendance on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The devil’s army are definitely in these places to corrupt the last good there is in the lives of desperate yet lukewarm Christians who refuse to fear the Lord.

Heavy drinking, drugs, nudity and in some instances live sex mark the evil weekend scene of the south zone of the city with a touch of rebellion against the commandments of the living God where demonic temptation takes precedence literally describing the damnation that exists in a small part of the wonderful city of Rio de Janeiro alone.

In addition to the former, a sect of voodoo priests also known as macumbeiros (known in Puerto Rico as santeiros, practitioners of santaria) spend their evenings starting at midnight usually up to 3:00am cursing corners of each street with chicken blood, alcoholic drink followed by macumba paraphernalia left behind.

Evil, pure evil! Services of satanism done at night while Christians are at sleeping at night sometimes awaken by 3:00am by an evil presence spirit wanting to terrorize the lives of weak Christians. No wonder why Rio de Janeiro is the city that never sleeps, literally.

In America, the conundrum is the same with different labels, especially in big cities like New York and Los Angeles California. Midnight is party hard tome, defiant drink heavily periods, many times with the goal of meeting a mate and with much rebellion ignore the laws that God has given us in the Bible, regardless of nationality, creed, color or political affiliation. Sin is everywhere in the nights of New York City and the city of Angels! In reality, it’s everywhere.

The language we speak here in the US is different, the scenery and culture overall is operationally less chaotic but the culture of rebellion leading to sin is the same as in Brazil in many ways because devils aren’t nation specific but a fallen legion seeking to destroy the best in you. Be aware.

There is much more to the seen that is in fact unseen. The spiritual warfare that exists between the principalities of demons and the angels of good that are among us all in the spiritual real is for real. You must be strong and live an upright life in the faith in order to be in the position of being unafraid of the eminent evil attacks that will head your way or in the lives of your closest friends and family members.

The demons are so many that a number of lukewarm and Christians who don’t repent from their sins wake up between the hours of midnight and 3:30am, also known as the hour of the devil, with nightmares and all sort of inexplicable events like waking up three days in a role at 3:00am with a bad dream or with a feeling of fear if the person isn’t a strong believer in Jesus Christ. Who do you think that is waking you up in that hour? Your body? Maybe but it could also be an evil spirit (or person) astro projecting themselves to curse you.

Listen carefully to this: Be very careful with whom you associate yourself with. What may appear to be an innocent exchange, like someone laying hands in a prayer or a free gift given by a person you don’t really know, can indeed be an instrument of evil… of witchcraft. In the Bible we learn a very important lesson about being a companion of fools, “Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.” Proverbs 13:20.

We also learn the following from scripture.

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14. “Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare.” Proverbs 22:24-25.

In the New Testament, we are made aware of this piece of scripture in second Peter, also warning us about spending time with fools fulls of sensual passions and corruption. Bad company corrupts and destroys the brethren, increasing the chances of demonic activity occurring between the hours of midnight and 3:00am.

“For, speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved. For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.” 2 Peter 2-18.

Many hear the word but choose to live in unrepentant sin. The enemy and his army devour the spirits of those who choose to join their evil mission by purposely rejecting the Lord making them an unofficial demon soldier in this life and the next. How much evil happens at 2:00am nationwide? Murders, drug parties, beatings and assaults, all that is destructive and ungodly.

John Ramirez and former general of the church of satan in New York City, in his life testimony on demons reinforce the topics and concepts presented in this piece. The angels of death operate at night. Let me extend this discussion. How much drug activity happens in Chicago everyday around 1:45am? How about in the Bronx? Or in Youngstown, OH? How about the hundreds of demon churches that meet between the hours of 7:00pm and 5:00am? With the intent to do evil on others?

It’s an ugly reality, this spiritual warfare that exists between us Christians and the members of the enemy’s army. We are going to be attacked because of our sinful nature but with a solid and close relationship with the Lord.

Being in His word, repenting from sin and going through the process and motions of sanctification, sinning less and repenting more, conquering old sins and habits and replacing them with blessings and service to others, is the only way for us to have the true grace of God and be defended against the devil’s hour attacks that many experience everyday across the globe.

Baal is at work in these hours, from midnight to 3:00am. Say no to the temptations of the flesh which leads to destruction. Say yes to the ways of the Lord and enjoy much peace. No matter where you live, evil does exist in the spiritual realm. The principalities and demon legions are at work, along with warlocks and witches, to bring terror and destruction to the lives of many.

Choose the opposition! Be a soldier in the army of God and live to advance His ways. We are to deny our old ways, repent, and take the cross in this life! “And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Matthew 8:34-38.

Choose God today and say goodbye to old evil ways. You need to sleep at night without fear and the presence of demons disturbing your sleep between the hours of midnight and 3:00am. It’s liberating to love a fearless life, I say. You can do it. Join the army of God. You won’t regret.

If You Are Invoking Spirits, You’re Invoking Demons

In the bible, it says, “Do not turn to mediums or necromancers; do not seek them out, and so make yourselves unclean by them: I am the Lordyour God.” Leviticus 19:21. “And when they say to you, “Inquire of the mediums and the necromancers who chirp and mutter,” should not a people inquire of their God? Should they inquire of the dead on behalf of the living? To the teaching and to the testimony! If they will not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn.” Isaiah 8:19-20.

“There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you.” Deuteronomy 18:10-12.

Serving in any of these capacities, as a medium, necromancer, fortune teller, and divination, sorcerer practitioners, makes the person one with Satan, the accuser. A person cannot be a Christian and a medium at the same time, much like Greeks and Trojans couldn’t coexist in antiquity. Flee from these demonic activities and seek the refuge of the Lord. Why would you want to destroy yourself before time and glorify the ways of the devil?

The ways of the flesh will certainly impede people from inheriting the kingdom of God, be aware! “Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:19-21.

In my life, I have met a large number of people who claim to be Christians yet they behave like the sons and daughters of apollon, with much envy, immorality, jealousy, full of rivalries, and dissensions they aren’t Christian but satanists in nature. Omitting and deceiving are subsets of lying and lying is a major trait of lucifer.

A Christian is to behave like a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, full of love, with morality, without envy, or anger in their hearts for a justice that is self served. A follower of the way must repent when the sins of the flesh happen and strive to attain sanctification prior to death. “When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.” 1 Corinthians 13:11.

Let me give you an example. When we were teenagers, much passion were among us all. Some might call the former just hormones, things of the youth. I like to complement the former by adding hormone changes with lack of godly rules understanding. Sex prior to marriage, passions of the flesh, narcissistic tendencies and the love of self are all demonic traits that many of us experience while young.

As we get old, us Christians are to reduce our these former sins completely over the years, a process called the process of sanctification. Let me give you an example, a man age 75, who considers to be a Christian, should by then have conquered his passion of the flesh from his youth and narcissistic tendencies, among many other secular unchristian tendencies like greed and envy and involving spirits through a ceremony, whatever that ceremony is.

Listen carefully: The act of invoking spirits by playing with the ouija board or any other method is demonic and will likely cause harm to you and your life. Seeking spirits at night or engaging in paranormal activities with the intent of catching ghost spirits is as dangerous. Flee from these two activities quick, as they do belong to the enemy’s arsenal to destroy the brethren.

You are now an adult. You don’t need to think like a child anymore but to inspire your kids to follow the one true and living God. Your offspring is you in the future as they often imitate you when they get old. Train them to belong to the army of God instead of indoctrinating them in processes, systems and activities that have a demonic foundation in them. God makes us parents with unique gifts to advance the kingdom and save the lost.

Let’s all work together to make God the center of our lives and the lives of those around us. Quite frankly, this is precisely why we were made in the first place… to Glorify the one true God, everyday, every night, everywhere. Say no to invoking spirits today, tomorrow and to eternity. Say yes to honoring God and His commands.

“Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce.” Proverbs 3:9. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” Deuteronomy 6:5. “And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 10:12.

Glory be to God.
