The Paradoxical Nature of the Christian Faith

I have seen and experienced what I am about to reveal to you about God and the devil. Those who truly serve the Lord experience difficulties in this life that can’t be empirically explained or verified. Things that should work miraculously just don’t. It’s difficulties after difficulties! It is difficult to live for God following His commandments in this fallen world, ladies and gentleman, unless your faith is strong and you are praying constantly.

Serving the devil (or acting in sin) often gives devilish (sinning) people advantages over the Christians in this world. A Christian who chooses evil over good sometimes may gain substantial favors at first but eventually are judged much harsher when they fall especially if they teach others about the world of God. It ain’t worth it.

This is also ironical. The small solid doctrine sounded church who preaches the word of God to its members struggle to make ends meet and pay its bills while the word of faith prosperity false gospel church grants charlatans millions if not billions of dollars in resources every year to deceive many.

The guru spiritist who claims that there is no God and that the concept of God is a flaw idea, much capital he has yet it is a struggle for a Christian worker to provide for his family every month because of the little capital he brings home. The lukewarm Christian gets his rewards in sin but eventually he pays the price for being an anti-Christ in disguise. Remember: The devil claims his own.

Surprised? Don’t be.

God talks about the former in a number of places in the Bible. There is nothing new under the sun, remember from Ecclesiastes 3?

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10.

How about this verse, “More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Roman’s 5:3-5.

Let’s not forget this one. “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds.” James 1:2 or “Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” James 3:1

Being a true Christian is tough, very tough. Let me illustrate this to you by explaining what is happening to us right now. We have ordered a Photo Booth from Israel in July to complement our photo business, which is part of our life hood. It is almost November and nothing! Well, until yesterday. Stay tuned.

Seven thousand dollars financed, once delivered to an old address without our approval. There was another attempt but the gate was closed and the truck went back to Cincinatti. In all instances, our tracking number has been faulty, multiple emails and phone calls were sent and made in vain trying to solve this issue in an attempt to receive our asset that we paid July 18th.

It was just more uncertainty, unfulfilled promises and more headaches for me and my family this Photo Booth thing.

Wait! DHL sent a txt message to my wife 3 hours ago from charlotte stating that they were leaving North Carolina. It’s 5:30pm and nothing. Another case of a Christian having to pay a price for being close to the Lord.

My guess? If it comes today, it will come at 8:00pm or after when we least expect. I prayed in my heart and waited. In fact, we just got it after my wife suddenly sees the DHL truck in our complex. Our product wasn’t in the truck!

The poor driver was over for the day, it was 8:15pm. But he felt compelled to get our package which was in fact locally stored. At 9:00pm, he was back with it. My prayers have been answered, thank God.

I wonder how many months would a nasty witch would have to wait to get hers! Not over three months I bet. Being a Christian is tough and I know it. Do you? In God’s time we are to wait and we did.

If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, this inexplicable moments will happen to you as it happened to us. It is only through prayer and obedience that you will beat such events. In God we are to trust.

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.
