The World, the Flesh and the Devil…

What immersing myself daily in the Word of God is doing so far, among other things, is that it is taking me out of the World, revealing the ploys of the Devil and helping me understand the excuses of the flesh that keep me off that straight and narrow path…

Coming Out of The World

As I find deeper levels of peace when reconnecting with Christ through the Word of God, I am losing my interest in all the many conspiracy theories flying about. My focus is increasingly to turn away from the drama and toward the heart of God. I’m still in the world but I’m no longer of it. Evil men will continue to do what evil men have done for aeons. Their deeds no longer concern me.

The Sins of the Flesh

The sins of the flesh have been legion if I am honest with myself. Listening daily to God’s word, I see how I allowed myself to be seduced away from that straight and narrow path in a myriad of ways. Try as I might, on my occult path of ‘spiritual development,’ I could not redeem myself. If you have successfully redeemed yourself, congratulations. I’m just not that good, I guess.

The Devil

Not long ago, I realised that the Tarot card in the Major Arcana representing my own Capricorn Sun Sign, The Devil, is related to the ancient practice of Saturn worship, recently relabelled Satanism. The Devil is real and it’s his greatest trick to make us think that he isn’t. I have to admit I was wrong in this article. The Devil is indeed the ruler of this world. He is known by many names and it is his spirit which guides most of the rulers of this planet at this point in time.

The Consequences

The consequences of acknowledging all of the above are twofold (with many subcategories):

  • Understanding that my best hope is to return to Christ and re-dedicate myself to him, asking forgiveness for the many wrong turns I have taken in my life during the past 30 years.
  • A change in the way I work. I no longer feel that divination is my calling. As of yet, I have no idea what I will be doing for the rest of my life. Please pray for me.

Remembering Who I Am

The path of faith in Christ is not new to me. I was ‘saved’ at age 17 and even before then, I had a strong love for Jesus Christ in my heart, from as early on as the age of five or six. I remember singing the Christmas hymns as a young child and feeling the words of them warm my heart, as if this was a love and a hope that I could trust in always – not just for myself but for the darkness in this world.

As it turns out, my six-year old self knew my heart and soul better than the wayward young adult version of myself who gradually abandoned her faith and threw Baby Jesus out with the proverbial bathwater.

Lockdown Metanoia

Metanoia is translated as ‘repentance’ in the King James Version of the Bible. It means to turn away from one’s old ways and having a change of heart. I have indeed had a change of heart and much of it is no doubt due to the lockdown – Proof that God can use the schemes of the wicked for His own ends.

Messiah

In the post about the Mark of the Beast, I touched on prophecy. Anybody interested in ‘divination’ ought to have an interest in prophecy. Prophecy is the revelation of God’s future plan for mankind. There are hundreds of prophecies concerning the Messiah in the Old Testament that were fulfilled during Christ’s ministry on Earth.
