Bad Thoughts – The Christian Killer!!
There is a war going on, and this war is very real!
There are two sides in this war, and both sides are fighting back and forth in us, through us and even around us.
What is this war about?
THIS WAR IS ABOUT YOU!
THIS WAR IS BEING FOUGHT OVER YOU!
BOTH SIDES FIGHTING IN THIS WAR WANT OUR THOUGHTS TO BE CENTERED ON THEIR INFLUENCE.
GOD wants our thoughts to be CHRIST like and to match up with the bible as much as possible each day and night of our lives.
Satan on the other hand wants our thoughts to be conformed into his image, and to match up with his evil thoughts that will eventually take us straight to the Lake of Fire.
Satan wants control of our mind, and he will try to do this by influencing our thoughts by having his demons talk to us.
GOD on the other hand wants us to be FREE in Christ JESUS. GOD wants our thoughts to be free from bondage, free from lies, free from strongholds, free from pain and oppression, free from all that is UN biblical.
GOD wants us to read the Holy bible so HE can help transform our thoughts into the CHRIST like thoughts that lead to life, lead to love, lead to joy, lead to freedom and eventually lead to Paradise for eternity!
Satan will attack you quite often using his demonic army to talk to you. Since they have been watching you ever since you were a tiny newborn infant baby, they know exactly what to say to you. They do this to try to get you to think UN biblical thoughts! If we agree with the demon, and think UN biblical thoughts. Those evil thoughts will lead us to depression, sadness, loneliness, rejection, self condemnation, lusts of every kind, suicidal thoughts and deep despair!
If we continue agreeing with satan and his evil thoughts, they will eventually destroy us if the LORD doesn’t set us free...............
Praise GOD that when we do get overwhelmed by the enemy, the LORD quite often comes to our rescue!
Of course GOD in in full control of this battle, and of course GOD loves you. But GOD also wants us to learn to watch what we think about. This is mentioned in the Holy Bible in multiple places and this is extremely important to practice.
Look at his wonderful scripture →
Romans 12:2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
GOD is constantly monitoring our thoughts 24/7!
Take a look at this->
Psalm 94:11 Jehovah knoweth the thoughts of man, That they are vanity.
GOD is also monitoring the thoughts of entire countries, WOW!
Take a look at this->
Jeremiah 4:14 O Jerusalem, wash thy heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thine evil thoughts lodge within thee?
We must hold every thought captive all day and night because the enemy is always lurking waiting to attack us.
2 Corinthians 10:5 casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;
We must learn to cast out all bad, all evil, all UN biblical thoughts the second we catch them coming into our minds! At the same time, we want to make sure that our thoughts are always as biblical and Christ like as possible each day of our lives.
The best way we can do this is by reading and studying the bible.
This war that we are stuck in the middle of, is being fought right inside of our minds over our thoughts and for the control of our thoughts. This war is so serious, that if you were to sit on your couch for 20 minutes thinking about sad and depressing things that have happened in your life, not only would you be sad and depressed, but you very well might have a demon of sadness or depression with you too!
And it only took 20 minutes. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME......................... It is just an example of how serious this war is being fought for the control of our minds.
Another example of this is. If you were to sit at home thinking about lustful thoughts for 20 minutes, not only would you feel very lustful now, but you might also have a demon of lust connected with you too.
I have had a demon of lust with me on multiple occasions, and I tell you straight, this is one demon that we DO NOT want with us. He can torment us terribly! We children of GOD better start casting down and out those lustful thoughts!
Here is a perfect example of what happens. Let's say that a demon of lust tries to attack you by talking to you. If you entertain his lustful thoughts, if you start thinking about those lustful thoughts, before you know it, you will be imagining lustful images in your mind. Once we men & women of GOD use our imaginations for lustful images, we are only seconds or minutes away from sinning possibly with pornography or whatever else that might happen.
Bad thoughts lead to bad imaginations. When we imagine bad pictures or bad things in our mind, that leads to bad actions on our part like drinking beer or watching pornography or even playing World of Warcraft. Bad actions and sinning can ruin marriages, ruin jobs, ruin families and friendships. If the sinful behavior keeps going on over a period of time, there will be more and more demons living inside of us to the point where we are now headed for destruction unless the LORD intervenes.
Most Christian people did not know that GOD is watching every single thought and imagination inside of us. Here is a scripture that points out what GOD thinks about our evil imaginations, our evil thoughts!!
Genesis 6:5 And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
GOD said this in Genesis 6:5 right about the time that he was going to destroy the earth with a terrible flood.
Here is a true story to help you to understand a little better what we have been talking about so far.
*I remember a while ago being woken up at about 3am in the morning by an evil spirit. He was on the right side of my bed close to my right ear. For the next few hours he kept talking to me over and over and over again about playing a specific online game. I had been badly addicted to World of Warcraft in the past, and now he was talking to me about turning the game back on. This went on for hours as I tossed and turned trying to fall back asleep. At first I didn’t know that I was under a spiritual attack. I thought that the thoughts were coming from me. As they continued non stop for a while, I started to realize what was happening.
Some of you might be wondering how can we tell the difference between our own thoughts and the thoughts that come from our demonic enemies?
Well on this specific night, thought after thought after thought came crashing against my mind, just like huge waves crashing on the beach. When these evil thoughts come against us over and over again, that is not natural.
That is the Supernatural.
The LORD had set me free from that evil game praise GOD, but satan through his demons, many times uses this game to tempt me, attack me or even test me.
How does satan tempt us most of the time? By talking to us.
As I sit here allowing GOD to write through me, I could easily take a 10 second break and think about World of Warcraft. It would not bother me at all.
But! When the enemies choose to attack with that strategy, you or I will notice that the thoughts keep coming and it can be quite hard sometimes to get them to stop. The thoughts from the demonic world can even have a little more force behind them than when we simply think about a topic.
In that situation, we are being attacked by the demonic.
So we can see from above, satan's main way of attacking us is by talking to us. Satan knows that by talking to us, he can try to get us to focus on and think about UN godly thoughts, UN biblical thoughts. And once we start doing that, the enemies strategy that he is using against us will start to work.
Now we have a big problem. The demon is trying to enter into us and if we take heed of his evil messages to us, he can try to get permission to be with us and oppress us.
Do the demons need permission to enter us?
Well look at this scripture which happens to be my favorite scripture in the bible.
Lamentations 3:37 – Who can command things to happen without the LORD'S permission!
There have been times when a demon would talk to me over and over again about playing World of Warcraft, but I rebuked him and commanded him to leave me in the name of JESUS. He left right away!
There have been other times though, where I have commanded the demon to leave me and he would not leave. A little while later I would command him to leave again in the name of JESUS, yet he continued to stay with me talking to me over and over again about this evil game.
Sometimes when I would command a demon to leave, he would leave but only to try to come back a short time later.
As we can see, sometimes they get permission from GOD, or possibly we give them permission to stay with us and they wont leave when we command them to, or when they do leave, they try to immediately come back.
Besides GOD giving permission, another way the demon can enter us is if we give him permission. Yes that is right, we people of GOD are giving satan permission to come against us day and night throughout the world seven days a week. We are doing this by either sinning, or thinking UN godly and UN biblical thoughts! We can also do this by speaking UN godly, acting UN godly, looking at UN godly things, hearing UN godly things and many other ways too!
The first demons goal is to get you or I to think about UN godly and UN biblical thoughts in our mind. He might talk to us about looking at bad web-pages, or Internet gaming, or listening to bad music, or watching bad movies etc etc etc........ When that first demon gets permission to enter us through our bad thoughts, bad words or bad actions, now he tries to open up a door for one of his demonic friends. The first demon will try to get a door opened in us for a second to enter, then those two will try to open a door in us for a third to enter. This will go on and on and on until either we get deliverance from JESUS, or until we are possessed and taken over!
I have a Christian friend who during his terrible Dark Valley of Death experience which lasted for over two years, had 50 demons inside of him. We know this because JESUS told him so.
I am NOT saying a demon can take over our spirit, of course not. But the demons will try to take over your soul which means = Our mind, will and emotions! All that is of the flesh, satan can attack. The flesh is created in the image of satan, so wherever satan can find the sinful carnal nature inside of us, he can then try come against us!
1 Corinthians 5:5 to deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
If the demons can fully take over the mind, will and emotions, then that person would be possessed or on the way to being fully possessed!
JESUS uses his children to deliver one another from the demons, but sometimes HE comes to us and delivers us himself!
One of the signs of being a believer in CHRIST is to cast out demons. So the main way we get deliverance is by helping one another cast out the demons. In many instances we can also cast them out of ourselves with no help, but sometimes they overwhelm us and we need the LORD to step in and send help to us.
Did you know a huge portion of JESUS' ministry on earth was the casting out of demons?
Here is a short example using another true story of what I am talking about above.
*A while ago, I went into a terrible Dark Valley of Death experience. It lasted about 3 ½ months of horrific tormenting.
What happened was, at the beginning of the 3 ½ months, and with the enemies help, I started thinking about sad thoughts, depressing thoughts, thoughts of being rejected, thoughts of being UN loved and UN wanted. That was all it took for the first few demons to enter into me. Once a few of them entered into me like the demon of (self condemnation) and the demon of (rejection), they then overwhelmed me by bringing in more of their evil partners. As a week or two went by, I also had a demon of depression, a demon of lust, a demon behind Internet computer gaming and a few more including despair!
They overwhelmed me and I could not get out of this trap. Once again, I sat around in the beginning of this valley experience thinking of UN godly topics, UN biblical thoughts and that was all it took. Now I had so many enemies with me, I could not cast them out and deliver myself.
ONCE A FEW DEMONS CAN GET INTO US, I NOTICED THEY SOMEHOW TAKE AWAY OUR (WANTING TO CAST THEM OUT)............... What I mean is, one or more of the demons has an ability to stop us from wanting to cast them out. It is almost like they sap us of our energy and they cloud our minds! Quite often we no longer feel we can cast them out. Of course that is a lie, but they seem to do this a lot. I have felt them do this to me too, and it is real. They somehow make us feel lazy towards casting them out, or they numb us somewhat and our fire and aggressiveness to cast them out kind of melts away and now we are in big trouble.
Here is a scripture that partially talks about this →
Can the demons blind and block our minds? Yes they do! They are blinding all non believers and many Christian people too. It seems they do this in our mind and possibly our inner heart too...
I have talked to many people who agreed they had demons in them, but did not want to cast them out. Since this has happened to me on multiple occasions, I knew exactly what they were feeling. I knew exactly what it felt like to be extremely sad and depressed, yet NOT wanting to cast the demons and those evil emotions out of myself.
During this 3 ½ month valley experience, I emailed people for help, and many godly people prayed for me and offered encouragement - Praise GOD.
A few months went by of this terrible torment and I felt completely drained. I felt as if I was 80 years old. My bones inside of my body felt like they were weak and about to give in. day after day, night after night dragged on with this terrible suffering. There was no end in sight. I knew if I had died during that valley experience there was no way whatsoever I could ever get into Heaven. Wow what a sad and terrible time it was.
How did this happen to me? All because I entertained those evil thoughts and acted on them a few of those bad imaginations months earlier. This kind of terrible torment went on for another month and a half, lasting 3 ½ months all together.
Then it happened. One night while I was sound asleep, my spirit jumped up and I woke up immediately. It was about 4am in the morning. There were demons hovering above me slowly moving away from me towards my kitchen ceiling and then out of my apartment!
I WAS FREE!
I did nothing to deserve this. I easily could have been left with these demons for years and years like many other people are. Either by people praying for me, or a FREE gift of JESUS, the LORD kicked all of the demons out of me. While the demons were leaving my apartment they were very angry that they got kicked out of me.
I fell back asleep very quickly not fully realizing all that happened until I woke up the next morning.
I quickly deleted all of the evil stuff in my computer that I had been doing the last few months including all of the Internet games.
ALL OF THIS STARTED BECAUSE IN MY MIND, BECAUSE I FED AND THOUGHT ON EVIL THOUGHTS MONTHS EARLIER!
Many people don't believe that satan and the demons can read our minds. I am fully convinced that they know exactly what we are thinking. I believe this and know this from personal experiences I have had with them.
Here is a wonderful article that goes into very good detail on the topic of (Can Satan Read Our Thoughts)?
I highly recommend this article->
If a Christian man were to sit in a chair and spend 20 minutes thinking about lustful thoughts, not only will the man be lustful now, but the demons will be able to hear this and a demon of lust very well could attack that person. It seems that our thoughts are out loud not only to GOD, but to the angels too.
Many people who have had near death experiences and have gone up to heaven, were able to talk to JESUS, an angel and other people merely by thinking.
Obviously the angels can do this!!!
Need more proof? Take a look at this!
This is quite shocking & it will really open up your eyes -->>
I bet some of you did not know that JESUS could read minds! Take a look at these wonderful scriptures and be blessed →
Luke 6:8 But he knew their thoughts; and he said to the man that had his hand withered, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.
Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.
Matthew 9:4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
Matthew 12:25 And knowing their thoughts he said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
There is a literal war in our minds over our thoughts, and this war is very real and very dangerous!!!
Some of you reading this are quite surprised that most of the evil emotions we feel have a demon behind them.
The demons can mimic the evil emotions we feel and even go by their names! So if you are feeling deeply sad, you most likely also have a spirit of sadness with you. If you are feeling deeply depressed, once again you will have a spirit of depression with you. If you are feeling very lustful, be sure that there is a spirit of lust with you too!
Because the demons are behind these evil emotions, there is NO need whatsoever for children of GOD to be taking psychotropic drugs to feel better!!
Those pills can do NOTHING to kick the evil spirits out of you!
Those pills can do NOTHING to stop you from thinking bad thoughts!
Now, what can be done to fight back?
We cannot be sad if we do NOT think about sad thoughts. We cannot be lustful if we are NOT thinking about lustful thoughts. We cannot be depressed if we do NOT think about depressing thoughts. This is the key to overcoming all of the emotional pains that we have been living with throughout most of our lives! We must learn and practice this Christian principal as if our very lives depended on it, BECAUSE THEY DO.
Let's take loneliness for a moment. We want to STOP thinking about thoughts having anything to do with being alone. When we do that, we will disarm the demon who is behind it. At the same time, we want to command the evil spirit of loneliness out of us right away.
The reason why this works is because GOD says that if we resist satan, he will flee!!
As you STOP thinking about thoughts that make you feel lonely, you are resisting satan. As you continue to resist satan by casting OUT all bad thoughts, that demon will eventually leave.
Why not command him to go now in the powerful name of JESUS and get him out of you, out of your house, out of your area completely!
Some of you reading this article might not realize that GOD gave us authority over satan and his demons. Look at this wonderful scripture-->>
Luke 10:19 – JESUS says – Behold, I have given you authority to trample upon the (serpents) and (scorpions) and over all the power of the enemy: And nothing in any way shall harm you!
The demon entered you most likely because you gave in and thought about how alone you are, or how nobody loves you, or how the last three people you asked out on a date all said no. Maybe you sat in a chair at dinner thinking about how you have been single for five years now!
So let us do the opposite now!!!!
Let us reject all evil thoughts whatsoever having anything to do with being a lone. At the same time, lets use our GOD given authority and command this evil spirit of loneliness to leave us right away! As you do this, you will immediately feel better. I have done this many times and have felt better in seconds. This is how real the the demons and spiritual warfare truly is.
Take a look at this scripture →
Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
GOD says for us to keep our thoughts on HIM!
THIS IS EXTREMELY POWERFUL!
When we are being attacked lets try to quickly get our thoughts on JESUS and the bible. I have done this laying in bed late at night and the demonic presence quickly goes away. There is so much power in simply thinking about JESUS, talking to him and praying!
In Luke 10:19 – When JESUS gives us authority over The serpents and scorpions mentioned above, those are two different types of demons.
So we have authority over them, NOT visa versa.
They are subject under us, NOT visa versa.
They must obey us when we use our authority, NOT visa versa.
So why are so many of satans attacks against us successful? Because we are giving in and thinking about and daydreaming about the evil thoughts that he is using against us.
JESUS never sinned once in his mind, not once. That all by itself is reason enough for me to worship him.
That is what GOD is teaching us to do. Sure these lessons can be quite slow, even spread out over many years and decades. And yes we will fail these lessons from time to time for sure, but GOD will help us to keep going forward in these trials over our thoughts!
The HOLY GHOST is slowly teaching us to have the mind of CHRIST!
If we think about sad thoughts, we will get sad. If we think about lustful thoughts, we will get lustful. If we think about all of our failures, we could get a spirit of self condemnation in us! GOD wants to teach us to say no to all of these evil thoughts. To refuse to allow them into our minds. GOD wants to teach us to hold every thought captive and to rebuke all bad and UN biblical thoughts, while allowing the other thoughts to be processed correctly! By practicing this, we are slowly getting the mind of CHRIST.
Here is another true story to further the point on how satan tries to torment us through bad thoughts.
*I met a young Christian sister many years ago. About a year or two after we met, she ended up marrying another friend of mine whom I had also known for many years. She was being tormented terribly in her mind. She was being attacked by many different kinds of spirits, but I will only talk about the spirit of jealousy that was inside of her.
Her husband had a night job a few miles away from where they were living. He would usually start work at about 4pm and get off at 12:30am after midnight. Each night when he was at work, she would be attacked with jealousy among many other types of attacks. I spent many of those nights on the phone with her trying to counsel her the best I could.
See people, many times when we are being attacked by a demon we do not even realize it. We are not even aware of it. There attacks can be quite subtle, so we have to be really on guard day and night against satan's schemes.
The jealousy inside of this young lady was barely even controllable on some nights. She would call him constantly, falsely accusing him and all kinds of other things were being said. It was absolutely terrible to watch this happen night after night. She would call her husband and if she could hear a woman’s voice in the background, for example a female co worker, the accusations would start flying!
Many times while we were on the phone together, I was even shocked myself at the level of these attacks! She has been fighting this spirit of jealousy off and on for many years now!
Even last night, many years later I received an email from her late at night. I read the long email and quickly saw that there very well could have been a spirit of jealousy in her over her husband.
So even though we command the different demons to leave us, most of them will try to come back.
THIS IS SPIRITUAL WARFARE! And you are stuck right in the middle so you better start fighting back!
Here is another true story:
*I met a young Christian man a while ago on the Internet. Just like any other young man who was with the LORD, he was struggling in a few different areas in his life. The LORD used me to talk to the young man about practicing to abide in JESUS and the bible. After a few very long talks with my new friend, he seemed to get some good momentum going with JESUS, the bible, praying and even worshiping.
One time he called me and his entire countenance was different. He had more enthusiasm inside of him and I could tell he was spending time with JESUS and the bible. It was quite obvious that he was practicing some of the wonderful ways of abiding in JESUS that we had talked about
Then it happened!
He got a new job at a huge factory working full time. One night he called me while I was on a cliff overlooking the entire ocean. We talked for a very long time about how to specifically abide in the LORD and the bible even while working a full time job. He seemed to understand everything that we were talking about and I had confidence that everything was going to be OK with him and the LORD.
He called me a few times during the next week or two and we had some good discussions. I noticed something though. He kept bringing up a few of the young ladies who were his co workers working inside of the factory.
I quickly mentioned on the phone how we have to be very careful what we think about. I told him it was perfectly fine to pray to the LORD about approaching any of these young women, but it was VERY BAD to think about them.
That was the beginning of a long, long period of torment and suffering for him. Satan was able to get his mind focused on women, dating and sex, and once that happened, he started to quickly change.
When he would call me, now he would second guess GOD on why is he still single. Or he would mention how the LORD has never brought him a wife to marry yet. We went over and over these topics on the phone, but he was a different man now. He was not the young man I knew when we first met.
Many times when he would call, not only could I tell, but he would also admit about how angry he was at GOD. He was angry at GOD because GOD never sent him a wife to marry. How does this happen to us children of GOD? Because we think about and entertain bad thoughts.
Now for you people reading this, he was a very young man at the time. Barely even at an age to even want to get married................. This is Demonic Warfare at its best!
This is how satan attacks................. He will use anything and everything to talk to us, to try to get us to focus on, to try to get us to use our imaginations to take our minds and thoughts and hearts off of JESUS and the Holy bible.
My friend fell away from the LORD and the bible and he eventually moved into an apartment with a young woman who was a non believer.
I never heard from him again!!!
It all started because he started thinking about woman, dating and sex!
Another one of satans attacks →
Satan will try to get people that he is attacking to stop calling ministers of GOD on the phone. He will use any and every trick in his satanic arsenal to convince the person he is attacking to stop calling such and such for help.
How does he does he do this? He talks to us!
I heard through a mutual friend, that the reason why he doesn’t call me anymore is because he thinks I am a fake believer in GOD. The last I heard about him, which was about 3 weeks ago, he was still in the Terrible Dark Valley of Death experience.
Out of all of the weapons that satan uses against us Children of GOD, it seems that he uses the opposite sex the most. If satan can get us to think about and focus on the opposite sex, now we are in big, BIG TROUBLE.
How does satan do this? By talking to us about the opposite sex!
The demon will talk to us about the opposite sex and even sex itself! If we listen, now our thoughts and imaginations will be running rampant and satan is winning this battle.
If we rebuke all thoughts having to do with the opposite sex, if we cast down those thoughts, now we gain the victory. We can gain even more victory if we quickly replace those evil thoughts with CHRIST and the bible.
Some of you might be thinking to yourselves, why is he saying it is evil to think about the opposite sex?
Here is a list of some of Satan's Big Guns! Some of his most powerful topics to try to get children of GOD to think about. This order is NOT perfect, the LORD is still working on me :)
Topics satan wants us to think about!
The Opposite Sex & Sex Itself & Lust with sexual topics mixed in.
Ourselves! Satan wants us to put all of our focus on ourselves. GOD wants us to put our focus on CHRIST, the bible, praying, worshiping, our churches, ministry work of all kinds etc etc etc..... Satan wants us to doubt GOD and to try to run our lives for ourselves, or to try to solve all of the problems in our lives by ourselves because we cannot trust GOD enough.
Feeling Pride, Self Righteousness, Ego, Better than thou attitudes – Etc etc etc
Greed. Wow can Greed be powerful! Much more powerful than people give it credit! This demon of Greed is a huge player for the end times!
Feeling Sadness, Loneliness, Depression, Rejection, Un Wanted, Un Loved - Etc etc etc etc.
Focusing on bosses, Co Workers, Family and Friends. These thoughts will be negative thoughts in nature about the above mentioned people. Satan will even try to get us to gossip about the above mentioned people.
Focusing on our Financial Bills, Our Finances, Problems in our lives and also on any Addictions we might have!
Our Medical problems.
Internet Conspiracy talk usually against our own Government, Gossip about our Church or our own Church Leaders.
Topics that cause Fear & Anxiety! The end of the world, Disease, Plagues, Earthquakes, Volcanoes, War and Rumors of War – Etc etc.
Please take a slow, deep look at the list above. Have you noticed that throughout your life you have struggled greatly in many of those areas? I am sure you have just like all of us have. Satan is not using anything new, he doesn’t have to because his strategies keep working over and over again in our lives and the lives of our loved ones!
One more topic that satan has the world focusing on right now would be – The So Called Aliens and Abductions.
If we look at the list above, the entire list is the exact opposite of what GOD wants us to do. It is the exact opposite of what The Bible says to do.
Copy and paste that list above and print it out so you can put it on your bathroom mirror. That way every day when you go in the bathroom, you will see 10 of the more powerful ways that satan is trying to come against you for the purpose of destroying your faith.
The more we focus on those topics in the list above, the LESS faith we will have, the LESS love we will have, the LESS compassion we will have for others, the LESS we will pray or read the bible and on and on and on.
Another True Story!
*I met an older Christian lady named Sonia about 9 years ago while attending a prayer meeting. This is one of those times where GOD brings someone into your life for the two of you to be friends for a long period of time.
When she was much younger, Sonia hired a voo doo doctor to break up the relationship between her brother and Beatrice, the woman that he was dating at the time. Well it worked! Her brother broke up with Beatrice and left her for another woman.
This completely crushed Beatrice for a very long period of time.
A little while later, Sonia came to the LORD JESUS, praise GOD.
Sonia learned that what she did was wrong, and even though she repented, she has been living with the guilt and self condemnations for years and even decades now. Guilt and condemnation have been attacking her day after day, month after month, year after year and even decades now tormenting her terribly. I have been on the phone with her many times during our nine year friendship where she would break down crying and in tears over what she had done to Beatrice.
Now people – This Is Not Natural!
This is Heavy Supernatural Interference here.
This is satan tormenting her over and over again throughout the years and decades. I have talked to her many times about what is happening, but she wont listen, or she cannot listen because the enemy does not want her free!!!
If you heard her being tormented on the phone with the guilt and condemnation, it would bring you to tears! We could cast out the demons, but she would have to believe first that those emotions are even coming from demons in the first place. Knowing her for nine years now, I highly doubt she would even believe this.
Oh how subtle the demons can be. They will try to live in us for years and even decades if they can. Even all the way to our death if we allow them to, or better yet, if GOD allows them to stay. They do not want to leave a person that they are living inside of, and they will fight to the last second to stay in their host!
When my friend Sonia thinks about the entire situation and all she had done, the guilt, the condemnation, the hurting and pain overwhelms her and she goes through terrible times of tormenting!
PEOPLE OF GOD, WE MUST FIGHT BACK!
We must cast down and cast out all evil and UN biblical thoughts the second we see them coming into us.
We want to cast out the evil thoughts and imaginations the very second that we catch them inside of us. If thoughts of lust come about the opposite sex, cast it out immediately. If thoughts of buying beer or drugs come in, cast them down right away. If thoughts of committing adultery against your spouse come in, cast them down!! If you are being tempted to play World of Warcraft, cast those evil thoughts out of you right away! If you catch yourself imagining to do any evil things whatsoever, command those thoughts to leave you in the name of JESUS.
You will find that when you cast those evil thoughts out right away, the temptation to do them leaves just as fast!
So one way of overcoming a temptation is to STOP THINKING about it.
Here are a few more evil thoughts that you want to cast down. Thoughts about how nobody loves you, thoughts about rejection, sad thoughts, depressing thoughts, thoughts of loneliness and all other evil thoughts that bring about bad emotions inside of you!
Some of you reading this might be saying to yourselves, I understand that I have to push all bad thoughts out of my mind but it seems so hard.
I have good news for you!
The more you practice this the better you will get at it. Not only that, GOD will help you!!!!
Let me show you what I mean.
Philippians 4:6-7 - 6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
The more we abide in JESUS and the bible, the more that GOD'S peace will guards our thoughts!
Look at what GOD says through Paul →
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
In the scripture above GOD gives us a wonderful example of what he would like us to think about. Ask GOD to guard your thoughts, to set you free from bad thoughts, to help you to overcome bad thoughts and he will!
Mark 11:24 – You can pray for anything and if you believe you received it, it will be yours!
Once again, the more we abide in JESUS and the bible, the less the fiery darts of satan will hurt us.
And what are those darts?
Most of the time bad thoughts.
Now I want to show you a few wonderful scriptures about GOD'S thoughts!
Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith Jehovah.
Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
One of the main lessons we are learning here on earth is to allow GOD, and reading the bible to change our thoughts into the way CHRIST thinks!
GOD is slowly transforming us into the very image of CHRIST. One way he is doing that is to help us and to teach us how to change our thoughts.
Most of us Christian men and women are learning that if we think about sad things, we will get sad. If we think about depressing things, we will get depressed. What The LORD is teaching us here is, that there is a very evil demonic spirit behind many of the bad thoughts and most of the evil emotions that we entertain.
Evil thoughts also come from inside of us, take a look at these two scriptures.
Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, railings:
Mark 7:21 For from within, out of the heart of men, evil thoughts proceed, fornication’s, thefts, murders, adulteries,
The scriptures above show us that we can have satan or demonic spirits living right inside of our spiritual hearts.
We must with the grace and help of GOD get satan OUT of our hearts, OUT of our souls, OUT of our emotions and finally, OUT OF OUR THOUGHTS!
We want JESUS living in our hearts, not satan. We want our soul to be transformed from the image of satan, INTO the very image of JESUS. We want to have the perfect emotions that JESUS has, not to have the ship wrecked emotions that the demons have.
We want to have the MIND OF CHRIST! OH PRAISE GOD!
How can we get the mind of CHRIST? By reading the bible first of all, and by asking GOD to help you to transform your thoughts and your mind into the very image of his son JESUS.
How else? By abiding in JESUS. The more we abide in JESUS, the more the LORD is living inside of us and we start to become more and more like him. That will include JESUS transforming our minds into one just like his.
Look at this scripture now->
The bible will point out what is wrong in our hearts and thoughts by just reading it.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart.
I have noticed as I read the bible, the bible and GOD will show me what is wrong inside of my heart. I bet this has happened to most of you too without even realizing what it was that you were feeling. Just reading the bible each day can and will show us the evil in our hearts!
Here is an example of what I mean. If I have pride inside of me, then when I read scriptures about how they bowed down to GOD, I will feel that funny twinge inside of me.
When we feel that strange thing inside of us, that is darkness, that most likely has a demon behind it.
So as you read the bible, read it slowly allowing it to sink into your heart and mind. When you feel those uncomfortable feelings inside of you, that is GOD and the bible showing you things about the condition of your spiritual heart.
Oh wow the power of GOD and HIS Holy bible! Just reading your bible will transform your mind into the very mind of CHRIST!
Here is one last true story that I will use to show just how important it is to watch what we think about.
*I met a young Christian lady on the Internet about a year ago. Before I put her letter down below, I want to give you a little bit of background on her. She is a college student and she had approached me a while ago about getting some advice for her and a Muslim friend. I did not know the two of them were dating at the time. So she starts off her short letter to me with an apology because she had kept that secret from me.
Here is her letter!
*Hello brother, I am so sad, desperate and in pain. Sorry I lied to you about my Muslim friend. He is not just a friend, but he was my boyfriend. We just broke up and I have been crying for like 2 days now. I have a test in 2 days but I cant even read. I am just so sad and I cannot stop thinking about him. He is now treating me so bad, no talking yet we go to class together. I feel the pain is too much for me. I feel like going back to him so that the pain goes away. It hurts so much. I have prayed for the pain to go away but it just increases. I cannot go on like this please help me.
If you look carefully at the letter above, these demonic attacks can come against our mind and can even make it almost impossible to read, let alone reading the Holy Bible, Praying or Worshiping JESUS.
She said that she was feeling desperate and in pain. What kind of pain could she be talking about? Emotional pain which is just as real as physical pain. When you see someone talking like this, it is very safe to say that there are demons behind this torment she is going through. In other words, there were demons behind the emotions she was feeling and she was expressing this emotional suffering by writing in the letter about how much pain she was in.
You can even see the emotional bond that my friend and her boyfriend had in the way she expresses her pain. This leads us to believe that she was being intimate with her Muslim boyfriend. They got soul tied by having sex, and now when they break up, it feels like she is being ripped in two!
She said she has been crying for two days now. That means she has been THINKING about this for two days. Do you think the demons picked up on her thoughts and attacked?
OH YES THEY CAN AND THEY PROBABLY DID!!
Her crying would of stopped as soon as her bad thoughts would of stopped. We cannot be sad if we do NOT think about sad thoughts. We cannot be lustful if we are NOT thinking about lustful thoughts. We cannot be depressed if we do NOT think about depressing thoughts. This is the key to overcoming all of the emotional pains that we have been living with throughout most of our lives! We must learn and practice this Christian principal as if our very lives depended on it, BECAUSE THEY DO.
To continue, she said that she could NOT stop thinking about him. Remember what we learned above. When we are bombarded with thoughts on a specific topic or two, that is the supernatural attacking us. When we are being bombarded we must cry out to JESUS for help. Repent our sins, forgive our enemies and seek out help from the LORD first and foremost!
She then went on to say that the pain is too much for her to handle! I know exactly how that feels. Those bad thoughts lead to some very powerful and extremely evil emotions. These evil emotions all have demons behind them, and when a few of them get inside of us, we now need deliverance from our enemies!
IT CAN EVEN GET TOO PAINFUL TO BE ABLE TO HANDLE!
She said that he was ignoring her now and treating her badly. Praise GOD!!! We children of GOD are not allowed to date non believers let a lone become intimate with them. Praise GOD for setting her free from that terrible sin and bondage.
What a heart wrenching letter up above. As long as we continue to think about the sad and depressing things going on in our lives, the suffering and torments will continue!
As long as we focus on all of the disappointments that life has to bring, we are going to be living in torment and suffering living through one sin after another.
The choice is yours to make each day. Are you going to allow bad thoughts to stay in your mind that will eventually lead to tormenting and suffering and all kinds of emotional pains?
Are you going to start practicing to cast down and cast out all bad thoughts and to live in freedom in your heart, freedom in your soul, having the mind of CHRIST JESUS our LORD!!
Children of GOD, the choice is yours to make, and we must make these choices over every single thought that comes into our minds for the very rest of our lives!
Our thoughts will either lead us into Heaven for all eternity to see our FATHER for the very first time, or our thoughts will bring the tormentors to us, to live in us and to torture us on and off and on and off as we suffer a thousand deaths!
Please choose life, choose JESUS, choose reading the bible as much as you can and be the wonderful child of GOD that GOD created you to be.
Love, your servant Garrett
