I pray dear reader, that you and yours are well in these difficult times. To be honest, I don’t worry as much about my readers as I do those who are out of tune with the true nature of things. The stage could not be more perfectly set for the end times prophesied in the Bible. The pandemic, earthquakes, locusts…and false prophets. My morning Chamber’s read earlier in the week sparked the realization in me of how so many of us came to be so tragically out of tune, and ill-prepared…and I don’t mean in terms of ammunition, food storage, water…and toilet paper.
It wasn’t a “fearful curiosity” that led me to years of studying the “unseen world” with a psychotherapeutic shaman practiced in the art of healing, or so I thought then. A Sufi-Kabbalist of sorts. It was more a grateful curiosity, having witnessed her work her magic on a hopelessly addicted woman who had been spiraling to her own self-destruction. This would have begun in the early eighties right up until the red flags started rising after 9/11…and flying at full mast after she became a Middle East “consultant” for the Obama State Department.
Raised Christian, I was always drawn to the mystics. Who could argue the merit of Ram Dass’ sage advice to Be Here Now? I was “initiated” into Transcendental Meditation with my high school buds because, hey…if it was good enough for John, Paul, George, and Ringo don’t ya know. Never saw the point…until reading Deepak Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success years later…1989 maybe, “The voice of God is in the gap between our thoughts, and the point of meditation is to widen the gap.” I thought hearing more from God was a good thing. And just like that, I now had both feet upon the slippery slope…with no shortage of slippery sorcerers. They seemed to pop up everywhere…and I never gave a thought then but realize now…how all of them were promoted by none other than Oprah Winfrey herself. And you understand what that means…I know Barack Obama and a man known as John of God do, but more on him later.
I would venture a guess that no one person has led more people on planet earth away from personal responsibility, accountability, and I would argue, away from God than TV Queen Oprah Winfrey. If she had a mantra it would be its not your fault. When, in reality, every last bit of it is our fault…BOOM!
Paul’s encounter with the false prophet in Acts 16:16-19 is both telling and familiar. She had found a profitable niche with the political interests around her, as a result of her communication with the unseen rulers and majesties. The health and well-being of our nation went from the tried and true hands of the local pastor and family doctor, to what has become a multi-billion dollar smoke and mirror carnival of barkers from the cottage industry of tarot card, palm readers, and crystal pushers, to the leviathan of Big Pharma and man-of-the-hour Bill “Mark of the Beast” Gates…just in the nick of time! Oh, I nearly forgot to tell you, John of God was my Shaman’s Shaman. She and her husband traveled to Brazil on multiple occasions, for his “healings”. Talk about a fearful curiosity. I am sure they had no idea of who this monster really was, but isn’t that the point?
What do barkers, sorcerers, and witches all have in common? They lure you in, just as the possessed prophet in Acts 16, appearing so knowing…and helpful. But the sheepdog in Paul could see her “center of everything” heart. If you haven’t been lured in yourself at one time or another, then you most likely haven’t lived. As I said in my own baptism testimony several years ago, my own path to becoming a saved born-again Christian was truly a process of elimination, having turned over all the other stones.
The other part of our Pray & Fast Wednesday this week was inspired by my morning Maxwell, A Brother in More Than Only Blood, on the importance of trust and “inner circle”, as found in the relationship between Moses and Aaron in Exodus 4:14-16. I have never been lied to, that I am aware, by a saved and convicted Christian. It’s impossible to overstate the darkness, evil, treachery, and pure wickedness that is upon us. But just as the blood of the Lamb on the door of every Jewish home saved the Jews from the angel of death on Passover in the Old Testament, so too will His Blood on the Cross of Calvary save us in the New. They are not selling vaccine dear friend; they, having lured us in, are selling fear. They can and have forced many things upon us, but they can never make us buy fear. Let not your hearts be troubled.
