Part One: Discovering The Reality that you and I and the whole world exist in, and why the Good News about Jesus is GOOD!!
God made Angels to be His companions in His heavenly Kingdom. At some point, some Angels decided to rebel against God. They became the enemy - the devil/satan, and his demons, and were cast out of Heaven.
To share His love with us, God made humans to be His children. He made the first male and female perfect, whole. To love Him and each other and themselves, and to want only goodness and love for each other and themselves.
And since God made us, we are good. Very good. Worthy of love, happiness, life, respect.
In his hatred for God, the enemy set his hatred on humanity, to destroy and to drag it to hell with him.
So he tricked Adam and Eve into disobeying God, to eat the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden.
Their choice of disobedience gave the devil and his demons entry into the world and into humanity – bringing their evils of wrong-doing, death, sickness, war, suffering.
Adam and Eve’s humanity was broken by this evil. This brokenness is called the sin nature and every human being has inherited this sin nature.
In His love, God sent Jesus, so that through His Cross and Resurrection, humanity can be healed and restored to our original perfection, and evil can be overcome.
And so since Jesus came, every person now has a choice to make:
1: to be in relationship with God. To receive Jesus as the only one who can save you from your wrong-doing, brokenness. To confess your wrong-doing to Jesus, to be forgiven, and to let Him heal you and to teach you everyday to follow His Way, His Commandments, as a child of God. To bring God’s Kingdom of Heaven into the world, to fight away the demons and wrong-doing and sickness and war and suffering. To know that God as a good Father, Jesus as the most best friend, through His Holy Spirit of love, will be with you to get you through whatever trouble, sickness, pain you experience. To pass through death into eternal life in Heaven.
2: or to not be in relationship with God. To reject Jesus and to continue in doing wrong. Taking the risk that this choice may mean choosing hell. That however unintentionally, this choice gives demons access to the world and your life, with their evil and suffering and brokenness and disorder and dysfunction.
Since choosing Jesus in 2014, I have come to know the depth of God’s power, love and healing and happiness, and have been spiritually and physically healed and cured from multiple demons, wrong-doings, misguided behaviours, dysfunction, disorder, diseases like:
+ Lack of self worth/dignity/respect
+ Self harm
+ Self punishment
+ Shame and guilt
+ Anxiety and fear
+ Depression / borderline personality disorder/ disassociative disorder / manic disorder / attachment disorder
+ Menstrual disorder
+ Suicidal thoughts, urges, attempts
+ Revenge/violence - idolizing school shooters, other shoots/killers
+ Racism / KKK / Nazi
+ Bisexual / LGBT lifestyle
+ Porn addiction
+ sexual immorality
+ magic / new age / witchcraft
+ The whole horror genre of music, movies, etc
+ The Gothic lifestyle
+ Satanic / demonic practices
+ And a whole lot of “underground” practices / realms of darkness and immorality
So I share The Good News of Jesus, personally knowing that the goodness of God and the freedom and life and light is available for every person,
that Jesus wants to bring salvation and forgiveness and new life to the most broken, darkest places in our hearts and lives - that it is never too late, no one is ever too far gone, no one is ever too lost.
If you have disbelief, doubt, fear, uncertainty, anger about Jesus, about God, – you can tell Him that. No matter how you feel about Him, you can call out to Him and He will respond.
Everyday, you can just simply say to Him, in your heart, out-loud what you’re feeling. Ask Him to forgive you, to save you, ask Him to fill you with His love, ask Him to help you believe.
Start turning away from evil and wrong-doings – because the enemy doesn’t want you to be saved. They will try to interfere with you believing in God, try to stop you from accepting Jesus, try to stop you from turning away from wrong-doings and obeying the Commandments. Ask Jesus to help you
Jesus WILL do this for you, everyday, when you give Him the access, the permission for Him to do so = Because it’s all about your free-choice.
What will your choice be?
