GOD DOES NOT LOVE SUICIDE AND TIPS ON LIVING A SURVEILLANCED CHRISTIANITY – PART II
As you recall, that other definition from the Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary is that, "The salvation Christ brings is...deliverance...from sin as a present power." It is further explained in this other definition it provides also, that "salvation" is, "the whole process by which man is delivered from all that interferes with the enjoyment of God's highest blessings." When you call upon His name, He saves you from the present power of sin you are guilty of, because He is come to set the captives free, as Jesus said in, Luke 4:18, "The Spirit of the Lord is on me...He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners..." And it states in, 2 Corinthians 3:17, "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." The other definition provided is, "the actual enjoyment of those blessings." This is salvation. You are welcomed by God to enjoy the highest blessings of His love, of the knowledge of the Word of God, of the freedom to practice what the scriptures teach you, to pray, to worship, to praise His name, and to feel the touch of the Holy Spirit. This even though you are presently disqualified from heaven, because of your sins. This is salvation. To be set free from "sin as a present power" in your life, which causes a separation or withdrawal from enjoying His blessings and the things of God you can experience. That is why the definition of salvation is also, "the actual enjoyment of those blessings." You are in His salvation through your enjoyment of those blessings. You can rejoice in Him with gladness, boldness, confidence, and thanksgiving. But, this is not the highest level of salvation you can experience or obtain. It is till you endure unto the very end, that you can enjoy life with Him in heaven. I am tailoring it to meet your needs. Now, let me go over some other definitions of the word "save" I provide from a different source:
The Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, defines the word "save "as follows: 1. SOZO, to save, is used...(a) of material and temporal deliverance from danger, suffering, etc.; from sickness, "made...whole"... (b) of the spiritual and eternal salvation granted immediately by God to those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ... (c) of the present experience of God's power to deliver from the bondage of sin...(d) of the future deliverance of believers at the Second Coming of Christ for His saints, being deliverance from the wrath of God to be executed upon the ungodly at the close of this age and from eternal doom...(f) inclusively for all the blessings bestowed by God on men in Christ...(g) of those who endure to the end of the time of the great tribulation... 2. DIASOZO, to bring safety through is used (a) of the healing of the sick by the Lord,..."were made whole"...(b) of bringing safe to a destination (c) of keeping a person safe (d) of escaping through the perils of shipwreck...Note: A.V., PHULASSO, to guard, keep, preserve, is translated "save." PERIPOIESIS, (a) preservation, (b) acquiring or gaining something is used in this latter sense...
The above definition states that the word "save" means, "of material and temporal deliverance from danger, suffering, etc." Then, the word of God says, whosoever calls upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. This is an example of a level of salvation that man can receive, yet does not qualify him to enter into heaven, unless he dies calling upon His name, perhaps. This is His salvation He promised to those who call upon His name. I just want to clarify to you that you can walk in His salvation, and that it is sure, so you can make it with confidence throughout your surveillanced life. One form of salvation, may come in the form of being saved from the sword, like it talks about in, Ephesians 18:4, saying, "...for the God of my father, said he, was mine help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh." He can also save you from your enemies, like it says in, Luke 1:71, stating, "That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of those who hate us." This is a true salvation of God. Yet, this is not the highest level of salvation one can obtain from God, which is life with Him in heaven. Just because you are not born again, does not mean that you do not have the right to walk in His salvation. This I say, so your realize you do qualify, though you are not yet walking in true righteousness. This is how Jesus begins to manifest Himself in man, which at times even takes many years, to bring him to devote himself to God. These are spiritual levels of salvation, which are sure, because He is present; meaning He brings salvation with Him, especially since you called upon His name. So, never stop, believing.
The Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, defines the word "save " as, "...from suffering...from sickness, 'made...whole'..." This is a mark of the salvation of God upon one's life, but it is no guarantee that you will enter into heaven, because of the healing power of God's salvation you experienced. But, through it, He intends to influence the one healed to consider the power of God and turn to live for Him from that day forth. See what happened in, Luke 17:13-18, where it says that, "And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests...And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice, glorified God...And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger." As we see, Jesus did not revoke the salvation He had given them over the sickness of leprosy, though they did not come back to thank him and glorify God. What He does, He does. He will not revoke the power of His salvation upon your life, just because you refuse to go all the way and get born again. So relax, God will be merciful with you and not take it away from you. But, you are lacking and your soul is in jeopardy of hell fire! For, "Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy...," as it says in, Romans 9:18. That means, you can still enjoy walking in that level of the salvation of God, but it is not total or complete in you.
But, at least, you know it is sure, and you can rejoice in it, in this world you live in as a victim of electronic harassments, wireless tortures, mind control, and surveillances. It is God's good pleasure to show forth His salvation power that men might be saved. In Mark 2:9-11, it states, "Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house." He did not go to Jesus for forgiveness. He just wanted to be healed. But, Jesus, showed forth His salvation with power on that man. Jesus did not give him a list of requirements that he should keep so that he could continue to qualify living in that healing miracle he had received. It was for life! With no strings attached. God saved him from his sickness. And also God saved him from his sins. God is present to establish His kingdom in you. That is what is meant by what the Bible says in, Acts 2:21, that "...whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." And also, what it says in, Romans 10:9, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." However, just because you feel and experience His good nature does not mean that you are right with God, all in all. You still have to repent of your sins. Jesus, assures this in, Luke 13:3, where He says, "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." Then He says in, Matthew 5:29-30, "And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell." He meant, take radical action against sin.
Then, the Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, defines the word "save " to mean, "to bring safety through...of bringing safe to a destination...of keeping a person safe." It says in, Psalms 34:4 and 6, "I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears...This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles." You need to realize, God will bring you safety, while you go through your situations. This is salvation. One way He has begun to work this out in you already is through this report I emailed you, explaining just about everything you need to know that I can put together, so you can walk a life full of confidence in Him where you live. It is His will. Also, now you can walk through life understanding it is the military who is behind all the surveillances and electronic activities you are put through. This is just an example I provide. With this knowledge He will "bring safety through." Also by the knowledge of the Word of God and His Spirit. Yes, His salvation is upon you, which can also mean, according to this definition, "keeping a person safe." He will save you. It also says that, "of bringing safe to a destination," is a meaning of the word, "save." He will be with you always and bring you safe to your destinations. This, at least, because you are sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, like it says in, Ephesians 1:13, because you heard the Word of God and trusted in Jesus. There are more scriptures that are also powerful, I will share with you in just a little bit.
Also, the Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, defines the word "save " to mean, "to guard, keep, preserve..." He will guard you, keep you, and preserve you. Just call upon the name of the Lord. In, 2 Thessalonians 3:2, it states, "And that we be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith." This is the type of situation you and I are suffering. They who surveillance are unreasonable and wicked men, who electronically harass us, use mind control on us, torture us wirelessly, trick us into believing the community is surveillancing us, and communicate with us abruptly, wirelessly. We may still have to suffer it, but He will guard us, keep us, and preserve us through it all. We are and can be in His salvation. If we call upon the name of the Lord, we shall receive His salvation and be saved.
He has broken the chains by which the military had me bound for so long. I believed everything they told me and it lead me to live a lie for their pleasure, without knowing it, but I was still saved. Then He answered my prayers asking Him to show me the end of these surveillances. It took about 12 years for that prayer request to be answered in its complete form. Then all was revealed to me through them. God works in mysterious ways. It was the hand of God upon my life in answer to my prayers. Now, they can no longer deceive me into believing anyone in the entire community was, is, or will ever surveillance me. Not even the police. It all makes so much sense now that God opened my eyes through these soldiers' confessions. This is how the Lord Jesus Christ saved me further and God will save you through what He revealed to me, also. He will save you through many means at different times. This may not come to you as a born again experience, yet. But, it is authentic. I have seen the proof positive without a doubt that no one was ever doing anything to me. But, because you experience these negative things, you will continue to live believing it must be someone within your community, unless you find out where it really came from, which is the military who surveillances you, just like I told you.
What goes on, you see, is that you yearn for God to be there with you to comfort you in your time of need, but you know you cannot bring yourself to be born again, just yet. This confuses people into thinking God will not be their help, even so. Then, the individual winds up feeling needs to withdraw and deny oneself intimacy with God. This happened to, Peter, in Luke 5:8, where it says, "When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord." But, Jesus did not. This comes with the realization of our sinful state, that we don't measure up nor qualify to deserve this intimate experience with God. You exist in sins that disqualify you from heaven. The Lord knows that. But, you must realize what the Bible says in, John 1:4-7, where it states, "In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not...John...The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe." His nature is light. And in him is life. That is what happens when you experience Jesus. That life in Him He expresses to you when you experience him and that same life expresses His will for you to obtain it. And that life is the light of men. The only way the light of men can reach you is to shine in the darkness where you exist. That is why it goes on to say, and the light shineth in darkness. How else can He reach out to you, who lives in darkness? That light has come unto men that through Him men might believe. What you need to do is receive Him. Believe. For, though, you exist in sin, it is His good pleasure to manifest Himself unto you. What I mean is that, though you are not going to devote yourself to a born again lifestyle, you should reach out to Him still and receive His salvation. It is a gift from God to you. Don't withdraw or deny yourself of it.
Remember, Romans 10:9, which states, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Just by believing in your heart that God has raised up Jesus from the dead, you have begun to receive Him. And in, John 1:12, it states, "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." What you now got to do is confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, for that level of salvation to be complete. What you don't realize is that you have already begun to do that when you pray. When you reach out to him with thy mouth, you have engaged in the act of confessing the Lord Jesus Christ. The word "confess" is defined in, Webster's New World Dictionary as follows: 1. to admit or acknowledge (...opinion, etc.) 2. to declare one's faith in. When you confess to yourself the Lord Jesus Christ you have engaged in the act of receiving Him. And the Bible says that, but as many as receive him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God. And to make it clear, it also says, even just for believing on his name. And when you speak to Him with your mouth, calling Him, "Lord, Jesus, Christ, Messiah, and Savior," you have begun to confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, as it states in, Romans 10:9, which activates salvation in your life. This is salvation and this salvation is true. Yet, Jesus said, "...but he that endureth to the end shall be saved." Which reveals to us that this salvation received in this manner is sure, but is not yet the experience of the highest level of salvation one can exist in, which is life in heaven with God. You have received salvation through faith and confession, but you are not yet totally saved from the furnace of hell. This is because you still exist in this world that is full of sin, which has the power to ensnare you.
But, what I mean to explain to you is that you don't have to withdraw, shy away from, or deny yourself of what God offers. Yes, the above level of salvation is not total. But, with it, he has given unto men the power to become the sons of God. This is salvation. You can call upon the name of the Lord and receive Him, because you believed on Him by confessing to yourself and to Him He is Lord through prayer. The Bible says, then He will save you. When you pray to Him asking for forgiveness, you are engaging in the act of calling upon the name of the Lord. With this act, alone, He can have relationship with you. It is the miracle power of what the Son has done on the cross for us. But, recall, what the Bible says of Jesus in, Mark 2:9-11, stating He said, "Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?" This question was made to reveal the salvation work of the Lord Jesus Christ. He was only called upon for a miracle of healing, but the Lord Jesus Christ forgave him of his sins as well. This is the work the Lord Jesus Christ sometimes fulfills during acts of saving someone, when they call upon His name.
Since you believe and received Him as Savior, Lord, and the Son of God by the act of confessing to yourself that He is, I believe He forgives you and responds to your cry. This has to do with God forgiving you of your sins to the point and level that He can begin to manifest Himself to you or engage in touching you by the Holy Spirit. But, you still have to take care of those problems of sin you have done. I don't want you to be fooled, but just informed. This is a minimal type of overlooking your sins He performs in order to reach out to you and embrace you. Just the way He did with the sick of the palsy. In fact, how else could He reach out to heal all the sick that came to Him? It must be that God forgives sin automatically, refusing to hold it against the individual, to enable Him to fully respond to that cry for help, mercy, and salvation. This is the only way I can fathom He could fulfill what He promised, and that is, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. But, don't depend on it. Ask for forgiveness too and repent.
But, this means you can exist in His salvation though you have not let go of your sins, which are an offense unto Him. This also means you can exist secure in Him and in His salvation though you are not yet born again. You can exist like this for life, but it is appointed for man to die one day, and then comes the judgement. At this level He will glorify Himself still. You are made free by Him to enjoy that level of salvation He has given you. In this level of salvation you can enjoy all the learning about the things of God, the kingdom of God, and even the Word of God. He, the Word of God, or Jesus, will minister to you the wonders of His love and salvation. This is revealed to us in, John 1:1 and 14, by stating, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth." Whenever the Word of God is doing something in you, you must realize, it is the work of His ministry inside and around you. That is because, He is the Word of God. This even though you are in sin, not born again, and deserving of hell fire. The Word of God is active in you working His salvation power no matter whatever you encounter, though you will suffer when you walk into sin, instead of paying attention to Him. This, even though you are disobedient. And this is salvation. This is what it means in, Romans 8:39, that, "nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
With me, what happened is that they who surveillanced me day after day, wound up heckling me, condemning me, judging me, and speaking to me in the name of the Lord with the voice of authority, yet it was all a theatre they role played for their enjoyment, kicking my faith down to the ground. Whenever I committed a lie, accused falsely someone in anger, judged within myself that the people from church are in gross sins surveillancing me, thought evil of someone I suspected was against me, or harbored unforgiveness towards someone for any amount of time, they leaped out and slambed it in my face to destroy my faith and confidence in the Lord. This would happen through sporadic announcements they would make portraying themselves to be people of God who had witnessed my evils. These types of things they continued till they defeated me, making me realize I should be ashamed of myself claiming to be walking in God and committing sins that testified the opposite. Even, Paul, said, "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?," in, Romans 7:24. Through this process, they forced me to withdraw myself from confidently participating in the things of God. I felt ashamed of calling myself saved and it caused my lifestyle to mimic what I had begun to confess. Then, it felt better for me to begin withdrawing away from the things of God, even denying myself intimacy with God. I felt wrong living for God. This is because it feels terrible when your sins are waved like banners in victory over you around you and before your very face, through mental visualizations and spontaneous wireless communications.
Then, with every gradual withdrawal of practicing the things of God, they continued to demand and take over new territories. They wanted them all. They made me feel like I could not possibly be saved at all to my face and by much doing of this it caused me to start accepting and believing in it, since what they had cast over to my face were indeed facts, in the form of verbal banners and flags of victory. They made me feel captive, caught with the evidences of sins, red handed, and guilty before them all. Especially, when I would stop going to church, because I thought the pastor was involved in these surveillances as well. I thought that his participation in it would only encourage, support, and even imply it is an authentic right to engage in. If I submitted to his endorsement of these things against me, then I would be justifying these wrongs as something that comes from God and I had already seen it was not the work of God, for as God did not inject a chip implant inside of me. It was man. But, how could I not accept that I was indeed guilty, again? What was my problem? Is the type of stuff I thought. Why do I continue like this in the Lord? What kind of hypocrite have I become? Is where this all would lead me. And so, my Christianity is not pure, I would reason. And if my Christianity is not pure, it is not right! And if it is not right, then it is not authentic. And if it is not authentic, then I am not even saved. With every new practice of sin they would catch me in, I would withdraw more and more from intimacy with God, believing I was honoring Him this way. They made me feel like God was sick of my sins and that my voice to Him was a displeasing bother.
Then, I wondered if God was even with me any longer. This is a terrible feeling in times of troubles. You feel all alone in this world with no one to turn to but yourself and you don't have any solutions there for you either. And if this is so, you begin to feel converted into realizing that you exist as open prey for the devil without any hinderances. The devil can invade through all, any, or things to do with you, what he wills. And since you feel disqualified from salvation or having a relationship with Him, because of your sins, especially because they who surveillance throw it back at your face, you begin to crumble and demoralize into self-defeat and depressions. You can reach a point in your life when you feel like you are unable to reach God. For it says in, Proverbs 28:9, "He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination." Then in, Jeremiah 11:14, it states God saying, "Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry nor prayer for them, for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble." This becomes convincing it is you, when you also consider what it says in, 1 John 3:8 and 10, stating, "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning...In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother." But, what complicates things more out of this is when, they who surveillance you read what you are reading from the Bible through you and begin to philosophize to you how the nature of who you are is not of God, but of the devil. This to trigger your mechanisms to react in such a way that would cause you to garbage your walk with God to honor Him, because you don't want to play games with God any longer. Watch out here! Open yourselves to what you can learn. In this, they had pleasure with me, for years.
Then I made another decision to leave my church. This happened from church to church. It was because I believed the pastors were becoming part of these surveillances. And that they were loosing faith in my professions as a Christian, witnessing how I lived in privacy. I was not living like the devil, but what sins they would witness they would oppose without question. And the military who surveillanced me caused me to believe these pastors were designing their sermons based on what they had witnessed of me through these surveillances. This chiefly happened through coincidences. What message was preached that just so happened to match with things I did away from church in my privacy, had me hooked into believing it was so that they were surveillancing me, as well. And when I would go home after church, they would heckle me with the very words the pastor had used during his sermon. They just wanted to make sure I got the message that what was preached had to do with me so much, that it was based on what was learned through these surveillances. They would even make comments impersonating these pastors. How could it be any other with such graphic details? Well, it has to do with the military having the ability to study the people you experience through your very eyes, ears, and memories about how they are. They do this as a form of sophisticated entertainments, complete with the arts of impersonations. But, most of all, it has to do with them having the ability to record what the pastor said through my ears, and then playing these preaching moments back to me, wirelessly. This for effects that he is present. I did not understand these techniques, until later. Let me first explain a couple of things to alert you of severe troubles they can cause, before I continue to explain how God has established different levels of salvation, to work His work in man to train and bring him or her, to higher experiences with Him.
I felt defeated, offended of them, irritated over them, frustrated at it all, and suspicious of the calibre of good Christian character they were supposed to represent. I was out of church again and that caused 2 evils to rise up in opposition to me. The first is not identifying myself through my actions of leaving the church as an authentic and official child of the living God. But, this is not always so. It has to do with what the Bible says in, Psalms 1:5, assuring that, "Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous." When they who surveillanced me caught that scripture I read, they readily used it against me. They stood up against me as though they were saints of God who stood in judgement. This grieved me so. I wanted to be used of God and be raised up to do His work through the church. It was desired that I be raised up as a pastor or minister in 3 different Christian organizations. In one of them, they wanted me to be a missionary. But, even with all that background and Bible knowledge, these surveillances prevailed against me with the military's deceptive portrayals of church authorities. Yes, I had to stand up in opposition to them and these surveillances, especially because their effects drew me away from God, which made them my greater enemy, even more so. There was nothing about them that was good, generally, since they maintained this position against me.
Yet, Jesus assures also in, John 10:11-14, that, "I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine." This is what Jesus called pastors, "hirelings." They are not the final authority in your life, but He is. It is best, for sure, to stand in the congregation of the righteous, like is says in, Psalms, 1:5, no matter the problem, if you want to assure your position in the Lord, with God. Yet, there are moments God understood, when these would fail you. I saw every pastor as an hireling who ran and made friends with the wolf, in my moment of trial.
The other evil that rose up in opposition against me was the sin of speaking evil against church dignities. The Bible speaks against this in, 2 Peter 2:9-12, saying, "The Lord knoweth how to...reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished...Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities...But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption." This is how they managed to disassemble and break me down, using this passage of scripture. I was no longer of them and I spoke evil against church dignities, though it was because they did evil surveillancing me and judging me wrongfully, so I thought, due to the impersonations portrayed me of the military of them. But, sin is sin, and God will judge it all. They had fun with this, causing me to feel separated from God, because of the offense of these types of sins against His saints. This was a vicious and fierce challenge to my faith, my assurances of salvation, and about questions I had concerning His presence in my life. Please wake up. It is the military and unless you realize it, you will find yourself falling without anything to grab on to that will sustain you.
How could I justify my sins? If I should, then God could not bless me, in the long run. How could I manage overcoming these surveillances? It was these surveillances that were the cause of relationship breakdowns in my churches. Without good relationships with the brothers and sisters in the church, God could never bless me. Especially, when it has to do with the pastor! The Bible says He will oppose you. This is why and when it is not a bad idea at all to find a new pastor, when he and you do not get along any more. This is not a good situation to be in. You never know what may happen and when? You need the favor of God, but you have been destroyed in this area of them that surveillance you. So, I would withdraw from the church when I felt things get out of hand. I needed a new pastor. One that would refuse to surveillance me and leave me and my situation in the hands of God, by faith. This, because, his participations in it would trigger others to do the same. Then they who surveillanced, I thought, would feel justified that even my own pastor endorsed it by participation in it. And this could not be found anywhere, so I thought. But, I did not know during these years of 1997 through 2003, that it was only the military impersonating them. Then I lived for God by myself, alone. So realize, what I am explaining to you, does come from years of struggles and God saving me from all these troubles through the knowledge of the Word of God.
But, that did not work out too good. The military that surveillanced me caused me to feel attacked of the community. They would portray themselves as people who were announcing to other listeners amongst the community that they should target me with evil, because I deserved the punishments for ever walking away from God by leaving the church. I did not know this was a hoax concocted by the military that surveillanced me, until about late 2008 or early 2009, when chiefly by accident, they revealed to me they were just the military all along, due to the sophisticated logics of one devising evils that back-fired. But others, did allow for this opportunity to set me free from the hands of my enemies. But, before this, their portrayals caused me to live suspicious, worried, and cautious about all my surroundings. This drained me.
I then started smoking cigarettes, which I used as some sort of a sedative. I was just so frustrated, irritated, worried, suspicious, defeated, and tense about everything these surveillances were and might have the power to accomplish. Also, since I did not even feel saved, I thought smoking cannot be all that bad, while I existed in these emotional, spiritual, and psychological torments they brought on me through their fierce portrayals of what my fate had for me in the future. When I reach that opportunity to get saved, again, then it would make a difference not to smoke, I thought. When you believe the entire community has access to these surveillance capabilities you begin to wonder just what on earth devious, criminal, and cruel individuals might desire to accomplish with that. The smoking helped me get a grip of my spirits and enabled me to think. I just did not care that much anymore. What difference would that sin make, when you have lost it all, anyway? But, I would repeatedly pray to God that He would hear me and consider the situations I was in, asking Him to show me the end of these surveillances, so I could be at peace and know how to handle it enough to enable me to serve Him. And that He did. It took about 12 years for that to happen. Let me explain this briefly, before I show you some other powerful scriptures I have to share with you.
This is all very important, because it tells of the problem situations one who is surveillanced can find himself or herself in. When you find yourself worn down and defeated of these surveillances, it winds up junking you around some. This is also because you grow tired, keeping watch daily and nightly, for so long, trying to keep on top of things that you are faced with. The military has created a surveillanced environment out of your community that is merely a hoax, but that leaves you believing if you fall asleep, you will drown, because this is a sink or swim situation, if you want to survive. Then you wind up radically thinking up of theories upon theories about who is involved, why, and what they could possibly achieve against you, somehow. And coincidences wind up impacting you mighty blows into your living, when they are merely harmless things at that. These psychological burdens, trickeries, and attacks they trap you in are clearly not healthy to your well being. These have the power to cause emotional trauma, psychological break downs, and loosing control of the good things in life you enjoy, love, and need. These are the product of vicious, cruel, criminal, hateful, disgusting, riotous, and evil low life military people who they put in charge of surveillancing you with all these devices they use on you for sport. They have lost their dignity and even self respect engaging in criminal terrorisms of your life, threatenings, stalkings, tortures, mind control, and harassments for illegal entertainments they revel in. To them, these wireless devices they were issued of the military government are toys they use to psychoticize themselves with destroying your very life, live for pleasure. They say faces of death made millions. This tells us what people exposed to these devices can turn out to become once they start to invent things they can do with them on living individuals.
But, in the midst of all this, the question still exists inside of you about whether or not you will ever experience salvation. With psychotic savages surveillancing you, electronically harassing you, and torturing you wirelessly, the question of salvation comes to mind. It was a struggle I sincerely dedicated myself to achieve obtaining what I loved, which was to live a born again experience, for life, till I die. But, you realize you are not yet quite ready to live a born again experience, in your case, perhaps. This might even seem like an extra burden you would have to take on, since it kind of has the feel of having to do with rules, change of conduct, radical changes to your lifestyle, practicing obedience, and doing what you don't want to do. It seems like a hard thing to do with your life and you for sure, don't want to play games with that, pretending you are going to be a born again believer, when you know you will not change, because you don't want to, just yet. And besides, why put up an act? You want to come to God right, not wrong. It is a waste of time, energies, efforts, and even accomplishments, because it would not be from the heart. You would be doing something you definitely do not want to do with your life. You would rather push that away as something you could do later, when you are ready to do it right. This so that your act of reaching out for a born again experience will be truly blessed of God, because it will be authentic, then. And, it is good, so you don't tire God with lies to His face. It will disgust you as well. But, I want to show you that God will meet you in this entire situation you find yourself in, anyhow, with a different measure of salvation you can appreciate, walk in, and live in to bless your life, while you wait for that right moment to reach out for a born again experience. Only remember, it is appointed for man to die one day, and then comes the judgement.
For God to be with us, is salvation, as well. Remember, His name is also, "God with us," indiscriminately. His name is not, "God with others" or "God with some" or even, "God with them." With this experience of salvation through God being with you that you can live in already, you can begin to master this same level, so that you can achieve maturing out of it into something higher with Jesus, later, when you make those decisions to do so. That is the end purposes of His workings. But, for the moment, you can enjoy an experience with God without hesitations, because it exists though you exist in sins; but it is much better for you to go further and get born again, for sure. In fact, the presence of God with you exists automatically, once you believe on His name. That is how simple it is. For, "God with us," will be with you, because you believe on Him and called upon His name. And when you receive Him by confessing to yourself, especially through prayer, that He is Lord, Messiah, Savior, the Christ, the Son of God, and your salvation, He will save you. This, by blessing you with His presence, you do not deserve. Also, by believing that God has raised Him from the dead. Just as I have shown you the scriptures assure. These are like the ABC workings of His salvation power, beginning its work already inside of you. This, though you don't go any further to get born again. He has already begun to do His work in you, patiently, waiting for the right moment to cause you and to inspire you to give your entire life to Him.
I do not believe most of you knew that, but I explain it to you to minister to you. You already have His salvation power at work in your life, since the day you did this, which happened so long ago, for most. But, they just never understood it and were unable to know what to do about it, either. Like, believe in it, have faith in it, and ask for more of His presence in your life. It took some serious years of struggles trying to comprehend the right Biblical solutions about this all to cause me to understand it, as well. These are simple things you can practice that open the doors of your life to His salvation and His presence. This means that, you can call upon the name of the Lord daily, through even small prayers you can say, while you walk, watch TV, drive your car, ride the bus, stand, work, think, or rest. Just small petitions made to Him with short, quick utterances of praise and worship made to Him, scattered throughout your days and nights, at least for starters. He will be there for you and will be your salvation and God, though you live in sin. But, He will bring home the issue of repentance, desiring and urging you to change your lifestyle, so you can experience the complete work of His salvation and a much greater, close relationship with Him through a born again experience. Just remember, you have already experienced or have obtained His salvation, at a much lesser scale or level. You just probably did not know or understand it was His salvation influence upon your life. This is why it is always said, your relationship with Him must be by faith. Which means, you have to take it, walk with it, and live in it, through faith. Put some action into working out that which God has already given you. Pick it up, in the name of Jesus. So, what is the problem with taking what you already have and doing something more constructive, useful, and purposeful with it? I told you I would tailor my explanations to meet anyone's needs and all. Let me show you how close God is to you, despite you. But, remember, He is closer to the born again believers, still.
In, I John 4:15, the Word of God assures us that, "Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God." This has already occurred in your life. You have confessed with your mouth that Jesus is the Son of God, to yourself and to God. Therefore, God dwelleth in you. That is because God is also, "God with us," indiscriminately. You just haven't acknowledged Him the way this scripture implies you should. It has to do with the Spirit of Christ, who is the Word of God, working His miraculous works through His omni-presence (God is everywhere). That means whenever the Word of God is invoked, thought, or spoken, He, the Word of God, is present working His salvation power in and through individuals that experience, through their perceptions, the knowledge of His word. In, Philippians 1:19, it reveals about the Spirit of Jesus Christ, by saying, "...the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ." And, 1 Peter 1:11, states, "Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them...," revealing to us about matters having to do with the Spirit of Jesus Christ. These two scriptures clarify that it is the Spirit of Jesus Christ, that is actively functioning and working inside of you His miraculous salvation power. This is Jesus in you, factually having personal relationship with you. This is because, He also is God, and is part of the omni-presence of God (God is everywhere); as the Word that was God, since the beginning, like it explains in, John 1:1. This happens, as I explain to you, through that same Spirit working its influence through the Word of God that you think to yourself about, reason out logically, remember, or hear uttered into being. Now, in, Revelation 19:13, it reveals to us also, that, the name of Jesus is also the Word of God, by saying, "And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God." That is the revelation of what is going on spiritually influencing the physical, each and every time you hear, read, think, or speak The Word of God. This is why there exists, salvation. And when you call on His name, you are confessing Him that He is the Son of God, implicitly, causing God to dwell in you, and you in God, just like, 1 John 4:15, states.
Now, that you understand that God dwelleth in you, which would include the Lord Jesus Christ, the Word of God in operation in your life working His salvation power and influence in and through you daily, you know that you have the Son. This being so, tells you have life, like it says in, 1 John 5:12, stating, "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." Remember, this has to do also with what, John 1:4, stated that, "In him was life; and the life was the light of men." That is the Spirit Life or Christ that you exist in, live in, and walk in, simply because you confessed Jesus is the Son of God, to yourself and to God, especially through prayer. It is much stronger and of higher quality for you to confess the Lord Jesus Christ to others, but as long as you do confess Jesus is the Son of God, God will dwell with you and you in Him. And in, I John 5:10, it states, "He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son." You have the witness in you. You are free to walk in His salvation, which He has given you, to have power to become a child of the living God, but also to have relationship with Him. This means you are secure in Him. This is authentic, true, and without apology. So you don't have to live in doubt anymore, wondering if you can reach God in your times of need and troubles. He, God with us, is already there. You just have to know through the scriptures that it is so in order for you to have and exercise your faith in it. This is though you are not living right. This is how He begins to pick you up from the floor in your darkness and mold you into having a better relationship with Him through the years. Then, hopefully, one day, you will make that decision to be born again. You can ask Him for that and He will give it to you in due time.
Also, realize another promise God makes to man is found in, I John 2:5, saying, "But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him." Remember, there are different levels of keeping His word, and God will bless you accordingly. It is His love that is perfected in us, from day one, because His love towards you is perfected when you keep His word. That is His expression of love for you within you. And He seeks to conform you unto His likeness expressing the perfecting of His love towards others. Living His word is the highest level of keeping them. Another form of keeping them is memorizing them. Another form is honoring them as worthy of respect. Plus, you do keep a Bible around the house, don't you? To read every now and then. Hereby we know we are in Him, the Bible says, only the measure is accordingly. The Bible also goes on to say in, I John 4:6, that. "We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us, Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error." When we keep His word it is because we hear them. It speaks of the Apostles, but can also mean pastors, teachers, missionaries, and even others who testify to you about the Lord Jesus Christ. You hear the Apostles, at least, if no other. And that alone qualifies you to be someone who knows God, to some level at least. And by it we know the spirit of truth is in you. But, this is just a little, O.K. You know God, but you do not know Him well enough, the way you should. It is one thing to know someone you like that you see around church or your neighborhood, but it is another thing to know that person as your spouse. Then, you will have known that individual, for sure. But, yet, you have been given the right to have relationship with God, and He will be there with you as your salvation, just for knowing Him this little bit. So rejoice and be glad, for great are His wonderous works, mercies, and salvations through acquaintanceship, as well.
As I mentioned before, I am going to tailor my explanations to meet the needs of any and all. This is why I say to you, and if your heart condemns you, because you are not right with God, He is greater. This does exist when you find yourself red handed, guilty before God, and you understand you do not qualify for heaven. There is no doubt about it, you cannot be saved, existing with these offenses you commit without apology. Not from hell, at least, unless you get that right with God. Yet, I want to show you, that you have an assurance of salvation from God still, because you still believe on Him, confess He is Christ, the Son of God, and call upon His name. This is salvation, but at a lower level. Not at the highest level, which is to be born again, living a life with the assurance that should you die, at any given moment, you will awake in the presence of God in heaven. Yes, let not your heart condemn you that you cannot still come to God, asking Him to see you through whatever you go through or encounter. Please consider what it says in, I John 3:20, by saying, "For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things." You can still have relationship with Him. Just remember, it will never be as good as it is for those who are truly born again, the one's who are truly saved from all their sins, ready to get to heaven any moment they should die. These things I tell you, so you realize that right in the middle of doing your sins, you choose not to garbage respecting His presence that is still with you. Why not? Look at Samson, who lived in sin, and yet the Spirit of the Lord came upon him mightily. God did not depart from Him, until his hair was cut, but you are not Samson, O.K. This is just so you don't reproach your Maker, who is everywhere, including there with you and around you, all the time, anyhow.
He said He would be with you, even though, He knows you exist in your sins. You just have to come to grips of the whole reality of it and live with it, acknowledging always He is there and is with you wherever you are. So, do not reproach Him though you are living with instances of committing sin. This in no way is justification for your sins. But, you can live thankful of Him for being such a great God, that He is. Not only does He deserve your praise and worship, because He is God; but also because He exists the way He does, being merciful, gracious, forgiving, and involving Himself with your affairs. In, I John 4:15, the Word of God states, "Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God." This is His promise! Learn to live acknowledging His presence, being appreciative and thankful for it, for He will see you through your situations. No matter what goes on, though you may have to experience bad encounters and sufferings, God is still with you. So, you can stand up and reassure yourself in the salvation your God has given you to live in, because you believe on Him, confess Him with your mouth, at least to yourself and to God, and believe that God has raised Jesus from the dead. The Bible says that because of that, God dwelleth in you, and you in Him. For His name, according to, Isaiah 9:6, shall be called, "...Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." No matter how you live, seek never to reproach your God or His presence, so that it may go well with thee. And this is salvation. It is a different level of salvation, than born again believers exist in, but it is sure that God is with you. And, one day, this will enable you to take further steps into making heaven your home.
There is a spirit about you that is in you, that I want to identify for you, according to the scriptures. This spirit in you is of God. This is because the Light, who is Jesus, shines in and within your darkness. This is salvation, because where He is there is salvation. He is the Savior. John 1:5, states, "And the light shineth in darkness..." That which expresses itself within you the knowledge of God, which is the Truth, and which measures all things by it, is of God. This is because you keep His word within you by memorizing them, or at least generally recalling them. This can also happen by keeping them, by picking up your Bible, at least every now and then, to read what His word says. Remember, what it says in, I John 2:5, stating, "But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him." It is the love of God perfectly working in you, through the Spirit of Christ who is the Spirit of the Bible, for His name is also the Word of God. Please consider what, I John 4:2, is saying here that, "Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God." That spirit inside of you that confesses this is of God.
But, that was the King James Version of the Bible. Lets see how the Living Bible puts it. It says, "and the way to find out if their message is from the Holy Spirit is to ask: Does it really agree that Jesus Christ, God's Son, actually became man with a human body? If so, then the message is from God." You believe on Him. Already. That He came down from heaven and took the form of a man. And that all Jesus did was God who was doing it, because He was God who became flesh and dwelt among us. And so, that spirit in you is identified as being of God, like this above scripture proclaims. That is the simple faith, which you confess to yourself and to God, making it possible for the Spirit of God to dwell in you. To believe on Him, includes believing that He was everything He said He was and who He was. But, you can reach greater levels of faith. For instance, this also includes believing everything He said is so. This includes, to a much higher degree, to those who are not novices of the scriptures, to believe everything that even the Old Testament says, how it says it. Only that we are no longer under the Law, but live for God through faith.
Now, you are struggling in and through your situations, being targeted with evil of them who surveillance you. You reach out to your God, whom you know is Savior, but your position of existing in unrighteousness prevails against you. You wonder if He is there at all to bless you with His salvation or deliverance or help. You then believe the solution is to go through a process of getting born again in order to be able to exist in this blessing you desire of Him. It is good, but it may take time, when you need something more immediate. I want to explain to you that He is present hearing you already. And I want to explain what the scriptures say you must do to receive His salvation or deliverance or help. This comes in the form of overcoming the world. I begin by showing you what, 1 John 5:1, states by saying, "Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him." This says you are already born of God. But, this is not the same salvation that is assured to them that become born again, because it is a lesser form of it. But, this does reassure the born again believer of it. But, you are born of God, just by believing Jesus is the Christ. God is not a liar. You already qualify and you are standing in His salvation. You are born of God, so you have the right to reach out to Him and for His promises. It is true, you are lacking if you are not born again, which is different, according to the scriptures, but that doesn't stop God from being God in your life and in your affairs.
We already confirmed that you are born of God, so lets go to the next step. In, John 5:4, it states, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." We are born of God, already, because we believe Jesus is the Christ. So, since we are, it is us that will overcome the world unto victory. And this is our victory, even our faith. That means you are incredibly stupid if you don't use it already. Begin to exercise your faith. Have faith that God will accomplish what the scriptures say for you, your situation, your fate, and your tomorrows. Through it all, He intends to cause you to graduate from this level of salvation, faith, lifestyle, and works to higher ground. Yet, you will overcome this world, because He promised you, you would. Just never trust believing it will happen exactly the way you want it. God is not an errand boy of yours. You are not an Old Testament prophet, and even they suffered. You are a sinner, so don't be choosey, because you are the beggar in this situation. And John goes on to reinforce what he is saying and meaning with the next scripture, being, I John 5:5, which states, "Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?" You are a champion. You can do it. You have God with you already who will enable you through the struggles of life. You will overcome and you still have Him. What you got to do next is also desire to remain in Him after death, in heaven. Then, you will over come it all: the world, your sins, and even death.
Now that you know who you are in Christ and also where you are in Him; you should come to realize that as someone who is legitimately born of God, like the scriptures that cannot lie assures, you have the right to exercise the power He has given you, without shame or apology. Jesus said, in, Luke 10:19, "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you." That means you can exercise power over the enemy. You should call upon the name of the Lord, and you will be saved from your enemies or anything else, as well. Just remember, there are also no guarantees at times, that His manner of salvation is not for you to just go through, without the destructive powers of the enemy having devistating or total affects on your life. You have enemies who wrong you, realize God is on your side, and not on the side of injustices against you. Get up and take authority over the works of the enemy. Have faith in God that He will see you through all your struggles, situations, and troubles. The Word of God states in, James 4:7, "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." Resist him, especially when he is trying to convert you into doubting God and His watch over you and your affairs.
Recall, that the Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary defines the word "salvation" as follows: "...(1) the whole process by which man is delivered from all that interferes with the enjoyment of God's highest blessings, (2) the actual enjoyment of those blessings." Part of the blessings of God is that you are able to overcome this world, with all its troubles it brings. One of the things you should do is start binding whatever actions rise up against you. Just state, "I bind it in the name of Jesus." Bind the mind control effects, the wireless tortures, the electronic harassments, and the illusions the military creates for you that you are being surveillanced of the police and the community, in the name of Jesus. Just remember, you are also invoking His name, which means, you are also calling upon His name, so that He will intervene in your affairs, because of your faith in His power. This is also a form of calling upon Him for salvation. Some things may not come immediately, some may take years, and others may come in the form of spiritual prevailings. But, with that action of faith that you took, you have invoked the power of God upon it, that it not prosper.
This manner of taking authority over things in the name of Jesus comes from the scriptures, like in, Matthew 16:15-19, where it states that, "He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou...for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say unto thee...I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." Since, Peter, had received the revelation of who Christ was of the Father, he was blessed by Jesus. He said, "I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." He will always establish His place of worship, where His presence exists before man, which you should honor. Just at least, pray short prayers to Him of praise, worship, and petitions unto Him, every now and then, to start, at least. You can do this while you walk, play, ride the bus, drive or ride a car, rest in bed, sit to rest, or think. Then Jesus assured him that, "whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.." So take action, for God has given you the power and the keys of the kingdom of heaven. All you have to do is be born of God, which you are, because you do believe Jesus is the Christ, like is says in, 1 John 5:1. So take action against a thing, bind it in the name of Jesus by faith, and just believe it is bound in heaven, and so is shall be, that it not prosper in or on your life.
Remember, the above definition of the term, "salvation." It is the whole process by which man is delivered from all that interferes with the enjoyment of God's highest blessings. This has to do with being delivered from the power of things you are put through or go through that have the capability to frustrate your peace, comfort, and tranquility in Jesus Christ. Another thing, which also assists you in the obtainment of them, but also is part of His highest blessings you are to enjoy, is using the weapons of war God has given us. This is part of His salvation, that we have these weapons of the Spirit to overcome in this world with victory. Lets take it from, 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, which states, "(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." You are not born again, perhaps, but you are still at least born of God, which makes you a qualifier to use these to take authority over matters, in the name of Jesus Christ. You need to claim the promises of the scripture and also with authority establish them and the things of God; with the dominion God gave you also over the earth, when He created you. Plead the blood of Jesus, then do the physical, by taking action by faith to establish yourself, a thing, or a matter in the name of Jesus Christ as well.
Another thing I need to go over with you is that God has given you the power and authority to cast out devils. You need to do this. I mean put it to practice by casting them out of your life, your surroundings, your house, your work place, your neighborhood, your endeavours or efforts to accomplish a matter or thing. Bind him and cast him down in the name of Jesus; and out of that situation, while you are at it, as well. This promise is found in, Mark 16:16-18, stating, "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils..They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them..." You may not be baptized, but you do still believe, right? Jesus said, that in His name, you shall cast out devils. This because you simply believe. Jesus did not say, and these signs shall follow them that are baptized or are born again, but simply to those that believe. Do you know why? It is because He wants you to start taking the initiative for yourself and start kicking the devil out of your life, in His name. This also tells Him, just how much of Him you prefer, instead of the devil. When you call upon the Lord, you shall be saved from the devil, especially, when you cast him out in His name. I am not saying you qualify to do the work of a minister, casting out devils inside people who look for help at a church, but that you have that power of God in you for yourself, so use it for your own good. You cannot allow the devil who hates you and wants to destroy you to hang out there around you. He is your enemy!
This is tailored to meet your needs and anyone elses. I just want you to prosper in the Lord and achieve living a good life with confidence. Does God trash you to bits and away from Him? No. That judgement has not come yet, because you are still alive. And there is still space for you to get it right. Does He reject your presence in the kingdom of God. No. But, you might not inherit it, when you die. You may be disqualified from heaven, because of your sins. Do you trash yourself, then? No! These are goals and projects you have just got to suspend and set up for yourself to do sometime, to overcome and cut out the bad from your life somehow, with time. If you remove yourself from God, then you will worsen, and how will you then be capable of accomplishing a thing, then? You need God to help you with those projects of yours you need to begin working on. And if you are not even there, well then you got to get to work and jump into His salvations and go from level to level. Take care of the ones you know you can take out first, then challenge yourself with the others, till you got them all, in time. You still have time. You got the breath of life, so seek to accomplish it. God will walk you there too. Why would God not be pleased and grant you the joy of His salvation, when He sees you doing that, because you want Him in your life? God is not evil. He is the God of patience, too. Ask Him to wait on you. Why would God not desire to just take you home one day, for it? Jesus said, in, Luke 18:41-42, "...What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee." That is all that man needed. Faith. And it saved him.
Knowing about the different levels of salvation will help you establish habits that are profitable towards a better relationship with God. These are stepping stones that will lead you to that end of salvation always, which Jesus desires of us, by taking us to endure in Him unto the end. You got to deal with it and work out your own salvation. But, I am going to put this another way, to meet the needs of all and any. This picture was the only one I could think of that would show, up to what level you should trust in God for salvation. This in no way justifies sin. Your sins do separate you from a close relationship with God. It is one thing to know a person you like around church or your neighborhood by talking to that individual whenever you see him or her. You might even go together to the store or you might just help that individual with some thing. But, it is quite another thing to know that person as your husband or your wife. There is a bond of ownership that exists now that marriage life has commenced. The Bible says in, 1 Corinthians 7:4, that, "The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife." God wants to marry you, and if you don't, then He will deny knowing you in that day of judgement, because you are not His wife. Let me explain this to you, before I go into the other picture I said I would give you to show how much He is there for you, though you live in sin and do not for the moment, choose to change. It might be a goal you intend to accomplish sometime later. This is much better than not intending ever to leave or stop your practices of sin, at all. Even if you don't, God will be with you still, for He is the God of patience. You can still call upon His name and He will be there to save you in other ways, but you will be in jeopardy of hell fire, still, until you repent.
Luke 13:25-28, states, "When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out." It says that they had acquaintanceship with Christ who even ate and drank with them. He even taught in their streets. Be not deceived, God is not mocked. Yes, He will have relationship with you, but you are not known of Him, until you wed Him in Spirit and in truth. You will recall all the experiences of Jesus you had teaching you by the Holy Spirit, while you were in the streets. You will remember Him doing a mighty work in your life and even teaching you by His Spirit of Truth, the things of God that you read about, while you wondered what they meant? Jesus said, they said, "Lord, Lord, open unto us." Meaning, they were familiar with Him and knew who he was. They knew He was the Christ, the Son of God, the Messiah, and the One who died for their sins, but they will be thrust out, because they never became His. This is because, they chose not to be known of Him, like a wife allows her husband to know her. And so, they refused, choosing to wed the devil and the world, instead, through or even because of, such sins like, unforgiveness. These were the ones' who cheated on God, while He was courting them. He wants to marry a virgin, not a harlot.
Now for my story I developed, just for you. I put it together out of sermons, teachings, testimonies, and stuff I read throughout my life. First, God is like a good father, not a bad one. Then, you as his son, pick up the habit of drinking alcohol. You are young and underage. Your good father, becomes aware of it. He does hate it, but he sees you with that bottle of beer, ever now and then. But, he still loves you. He welcomes you still to live with him at home. You are a fool, if you run away, just because you started drinking and he hates it. Besides, with God, where will you go that He will no longer be? He will be there, like He is where you are right now. If you run away, you will wind up homeless in the streets, where you could wind up killed, stabbed, shot, exploited, beat up, or even raped. You know you are not going to stop drinking, just yet. But, you do know he is right, that you should stop the drinking. Choose wisdom and stay home. That good father God is like will still feed you, give you a place to sleep, buy you clothes, be a friend you can go to with real problems, will be on your side against others, and pick you up at night so you don't have to walk home. And sometimes, he will even help you pay your traffick tickets, so they don't put you in jail. And, if they put you there, he might pay to get you out. In fact, he may even buy you a car, so why young youth, should you destroy yourself by leaving his house? This good father gave birth to you with his wife he loves, so he will love you, accept you, and provide for you your needs. He wants you to snap out of it, dear child, so you don't live your entire life as a drunkard, because it will damage your life. Then, one day, you will open your eyes and realize your father was right and you leave the drinking behind, for good. Then it is, that your relationship with your father will improve! Things are better now. Seek to desire entering the kingdom of God, not just here on earth, but also in heaven where He dwells.
Now, instead of drinking, because this was the only way I could put it in a story to prove a point, try unforgiveness, worldliness, speaking evil of church people, desiring your neighbor's spouse, not honoring your parents sometime or another, or not loving the brothers and sisters in Christ. There are worse sins than that, you could be guilty of. But, so what. I want to reach out to every one of you. You love your father and he loves you. So why would you leave him? Things can disqualify you from heaven, but God can forgive you, easy too. But, if you live like that to your grave, you won't make heaven your home. Even if you are not ready for church, you can still remain in Him by reading the Bible, every now and then, to start. You are not pretending to be someone you are not, just desiring to know more of Him. Buy yourself some Christian music to start listening to and phase out the other music from your life that does not glorify the Lord. Yes, surround yourself with His praises and welcome that atmosphere of worship into your life, for He will bless you. There are all sorts of styles of Christian music you can choose from, so get the kind you like. Get yourself the Bible on DVD. You can find them on the internet. I bought one for just about $20.00. It is much easier getting to know God through the Bible like this. Even though you live in sins that disqualify you from heaven, go out and do this. It is a beginning and it shows you are appreciative of Him and what He is about. And, when the time comes, you can mature out of this beginning level of salvation you exist in.
But, work these things out in your life. It may take lots of time. These are all examples. Whatever it is that makes you understand you don't qualify to inherit heaven as your home, God can work with you about them, even in stages. No matter how long it takes. When you called upon the name of the Lord, you invited Him over to your house. When you accepted Him as your Lord and Savior, you invited Him to move in with you. That is what it means with the scripture that states, "Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God," in 1 John 4:15. That is because, since that day, you became His. You are still not married yet, but you have become His acquaintance in spirit. Therefore, you are His, so to speak. You even asked Him to move in with you and He did. That is what it means that God dwelleth in you, because you confessed that Jesus is the Son of God.
Then, the Word of God says, in, 1 John 5:1, "Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God; and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him." You were born of God, which identified you with Him. But, even though you are born of God, you can still get married with the world, your sins, or the devil, instead of with Him. That is your power of choice you still possess in you, till you die. But, that eternal marriage with heaven or hell has not happened yet, and it can't, until you die or are raptured or resurrected of the Lord Jesus Christ. So the total ownership of your life is still not complete, but it's a start. But, now that you have invited Him over, don't reproach Him. He understands it’s your house and He has given you the power to do what you will. He is just going to be with you till you die, like you always wished He would, even if you sin and do not repent. Don't allow your sins to cause you to get an attitude against God, treating Him with contempt, anger, and reproaches. You invited Him. This may happen when you know you want to sin, and you feel it is rude for you to sin in His presence. You might desire Him to leave, but that is a mistake, because you will be rude to Him and how will you feel good about speaking to Him again. Whether you like it or not, you will always sin in His presence when you sin, but why should that sin cause you to despise His company. Wise up, He is there and He is an understanding God. But, truly, He hates your sins. But, like the good father that loves his son, though he started drinking, God will always love you and welcome your invitations to be there with you, when you ask Him to by calling upon His name. Just live accepting the fact that He is always there and make it a habit to speak to Him, at least every now and then. Talk to Him about all your problems as though He were your best friend you were telling all your problems to, looking for comfort.
In time, if you are not ready just yet, you can begin to work on developing habits, that please the Lord. But, at least, start to pray to Him, short prayers, every now and then to worship Him, praise Him, thank Him, and to bring your petitions to Him. They can be as short as just a quick minute, while you are walking in the streets, resting in your home, watching TV, or even riding the bus. What hurt is that to you? What discomfort? Then, before you know it, this will become a habit to you, and you will begin to do that automatically and increase your confidence in the Lord. Setting special times for the Lord are good, but short prayers vocalized to Him throughout the days really breaks the ice. One thing about setting aside special times for the Lord that may not be good, is that they may have the feel of church activity, which may become something you wind up looking at negatively at the end. Especially, if you are a beginner. The feel that you are not ready for that may invade you and cause you to deny yourself that time, because you have seen you are not going to change. Plus, at times, it may look like or even become a chore, which may cause you to feel lazy about doing that after all, when the time comes. Just break through the day with short prayers unto the Lord that take about a minute each. Practice doing this, every now and then. All you have to do is speak out at the moment just a few words like the following: "Lord I praise you. I worship you. I want to thank you for this day you have given me. Please, forgive me of my sins. Be with me, O Lord. Walk with me. I accept you into my life and heart. I know I live in sin, but I still need you. I acknowledge you, O God. Help me to change. I see and know it will take time. I know I am a sinner. Please cause me to live for you, naturally. Thank you Lord, for being with me, every day and keeping me in your hands." These are just examples you can use. Say what you need to.
If you don't strive (start working at it), then you never will. I met people who live with zeal for the things of God from, Victory Outreach. A ministry that reaches out specifically to drug addicts, gang members, prisoners, ex-convicts, criminals, drunkards, and harlots. I heard testimonies how some started their Christianity going to church. That is where their help was to all their problems. They started reading the Bible. They started listening to Christian music. They wanted to make these things a habit, so they continued in them. Well, I found out that some were still doing drugs while they were doing this, because it is hard to break some habits. They wanted to break out of it and serve the Lord. But, it took time to leave the drugs and also to stop hanging around their old friends. Also, addictions can be fierce, like with heroine. Their body demands it and trembles with sickness when they don't have it. That is a bad and fierce bondage of sin. But, they got it (the addiction) and God wanted them to struggle that out of their lives. For some it even took up to a year or more.
They were ready to serve the Lord, but they had big problems. They saw those huge structures of sin in their lives and they determined to break them all down and build a building for the Lord in their stead. For them, spontaneous conversion was something they just could not come to comprehend or see themselves live, from one day to the other. So they did it in stages. To them, that was something they saw as achievable. They had to stop the drugs, stop hanging out with the friends they loved, stop reaching out for the beer, liquor, and cigarettes as a calming sedative for the irritations, frustrations, and yearnings to do something, when there was nothing to do. They had to teach themselves with the help of the Lord how to live without reaching out for those things, whenever they felt frustrated, irritated, grieved, and like calming their bosom with those things as relaxants. You can do something like this all. At least, begin praying short prayers daily. Work on reading the Bible. Get yourself some good Christian music you can enjoy. Buy the Bible on DVD, it will entertain you with good, while you relax.
Work these things out in your life, at least, first, so you can enjoy His company and the salvation He has given you that you live in right now. Plus, that knowledge and those habits will help you through all you will go through, just ahead of you. Then, one day God will begin, through your involvement with these things, to build your lifestyle in a different way. It will be something you will want to do. It will become a habit "to want to." Then, you will find yourself doing that. You will, because of the influence, begin to desire that lifestyle. You might begin, just like those brothers and sisters from, Victory Outreach, did, by stopping your vilest sins first; but then work on the others, some time later. That's, O.K. You have made some steps and now you are at a higher level of salvation. You will be saved from that which you did, but no longer do. And that too, is salvation. And, one day, you will get born again. I mean to meet the needs of all and any with these examples. I only hope to bless you in the Lord.
God is the God of patience, so have faith and walk with assurance, trusting in God. You may not want to get born again for a while, but you can have access to Him and the enjoyment of the things of God, still. It is not wrong or evil, because you are not standing up pretending to be a minister, so don't feel like you are a hypocrite for doing those things on your own and in your own privacy. Remember, it says in, Romans 15:5, "Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus." It says, that God is the God of patience. He will wait all the way till you die, but remember, once you die, then comes the judgement. With no life, you have no more opportunity to do something with the time you have wasted. But, you are not dead and while there is still breath there is still time. Ask God to be merciful and patient with you, while you pray your short prayers to Him. You may not be ready to get born again, but you can at least begin functioning and practicing your faith. You will not be a hypocrite at all, because you are not a minister practicing your sins, while you involve yourself in these things of God for helps, enjoyment, or for health, by yourself in your own privacy. You are not pretending to be that minister, which would classify you as a hypocrite. Just because you are not born again, doesn't mean you can't practice Christianity. God wants you to anyhow.
The critical reasons I am going through these rigorous explanations to instruct you is so you are able to stand and remain strong. The military who surveillances me targets me wickedly with wild accusations, reproaches of the quality of my service to the Lord, and fierce questions of doubt. What enables me to overcome is my strong background in the things of God. Since a teenager, I was applauded for my intense research into the profound meanings of things through the Word of God. I am able to answer their devil questions and accusations with the Word of God. They spit out at me, with defeat saying, they wished I were a novice, so they could convince me to loose faith in God, for sport. I have too many years of history in the things of God, so they cannot defeat me, now, like they used to. Yet, it makes me fear for those who are mere novices and of even supposed experts, who have not yet obtained masteries with the scriptures. Should they suffer these consistent daily attacks on their faith and understandings, they might crumble at a matter. They twist the nature of the scriptures and portray bad fate to be the very hand of God working against the victim in order to achieve masteries and feelings of justifications against him or her. This can lead to disasterous psychological, emotional, and spiritual troubles of helplessness, defeat, and sorrow. They seem psychotically sensationalized to affix themselves in managing to triumph over me for purposes of self-entertainments and sport. It is what I call, the psychological affects these surveillance devices have on them that use them, for long periods of time. For this reason, I am putting forth a rigorous set of explanations of the scriptures, that will strengthen your view of things, as they truly exist through the Word of God. Through these it is my desire to minister to each and every one, any and all.
But, there are also other stages of salvation. He saves you from you troubles, though you are not born again, when you call upon His name. There is physical salvation, mental salvation, emotional salvation, too. Then there is spiritual salvation, which is His ultimate goal for you life and with it, too. Once you are born of God, because you believe that Jesus is the Christ, according to, 1 John 5:1, you become a servant, categorizing everything you do for Him to become a rendering of service unto the Lord. That is even if you don't live a born again lifestyle. He does not reproach your good works you do for Him to honor Him. This is important to note, should they who surveillance you find you in your sins, reproaching every good work you do unto the Lord, for whatever purpose. They can make you let go of faith you were enacting through your good work you do for the Lord, by engaging in smear campaigns against you, verbally opposing you, your intentions, and your actions, for sport. They can by slambing rememberances of your sins to your face, startle you and confound you into reacting against yourself to refrain from such actions and approaches. They will glory in their abilities to make you feel ashamed for coming to the Lord with that act of faith, which you enacted to begin doing something for the Lord and to inspire you to please God. They know you are looking for favor of the Lord, but they want to keep you defeated, so they can revel in their evil against you, with entertaining enthusiasms. They can be truly evil, cultivating your temperances that empower your susceptibility to the impact of their treacheries. Recall, they are just around suveillancing you for long periods of time, which plunges them into states of fierce irritations, frustrations, and boredoms. This is no justification, but description of the psychological affects these devices they handle have on them. We, just got to deal with it and live with it, until the government does something about it.
They threw continually, monkey wrench after monkey wrench, at me from day to day, for years. And it is still going on. They question every instance of my service to God, to cause me and the others to feel as though I am disqualified, somehow; because the quality of my service to God is not what it could be, every moment of my life. They got ideas, wondering, if that gives them the open door to feel good now, and justified, doing something treacherous, just to break out for sport against me, and release some tensions they feel inside towards me, about anything. They were just, checking. But, what came to my aid, was the idea and concept of military service. When someone joins the military, though they are off base on their free time, not doing something active for their country or the military, they are still in the state of service. They belong to the military who has the right to call them in to do whatsoever is demanded, any moment of their day. Now, I could answer them. They laughed, thinking I was cunning, and I remembered what Jesus said, that we are to be wise as serpents.
Since they are military, it worked a wonderous work in their psyche. Yes, I am God's servant and I am serving Him every day, even though I am not presently doing something active for Him each and every moment. Just like a military person is considered as serving his country, 24 hours a day, when they enlist for active duty. So, I can still answer and say, "I am serving the Lord," even though I am doing something that does not actively and directly glorify Him, like rest and think about what I could do or read a book that has nothing to do with Christianity. This is simply because I am His servant, since I am born of God, just for believing Jesus is the Christ, according to, 1 John 5:11, for example. It works better when you deal with strong basics they cannot gainsay. And God still dwelleth in me, according to, 1 John 4:15, which states He does, simply because I do confess that Jesus is the Son of God. This, though I am not warring against the sins of my past, or even present ones, which come in the form of thoughts; which could be better, and not sinful. Just trust in Jesus that your sins are forgiven you. But, also, ask Him to forgive you of your sins or bind those thoughts in the name of Jesus.
They were challenging me with these style of inquiries to frustrate me into believing I have to exist with constant enthusiasms, practicing my religion without fail when there was nothing to practice it on, like maintaining a state of constant glorification towards God, and not spending time with myself to interest myself with what encounters I could involve myself with. This irritates, frustrates, wearies, and disillusions one to desire no more, when you try to live that way. But, remember, God wants you to spend time just getting away, resting, and doing something else for pleasure, comfort, and relief too. God knows that if you read the Bible, pray without doing something else, and seek to do something for Him each and every moment of your days, without end, you will overdose, tire, and throw it all away to get a moment's rest. And He knows that will cause you to never seek doing those things ever again. Besides, that is not His will. This is how He created you, to also enjoy life. Please consider my words, and be wise. I am seeking to minister to every need and confused thought that may exist within any or all victims of electronic harassments.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-9, says, "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born...a time to plant, and a time to pluck up...a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing, A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;...a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time of love...and a time of peace..." Get out there and do something entertaining or to break out of your daily routines. It is of the Lord. This, even though you live in sins and practice them. Its O.K. with God if you just get away, seek rest to get your mind thinking clearly and better, forgetting that you have not overcome your sins, yet. In this, you will strategize and seek to find ways you can defeat your sins, later, which will prove to be more effective against them, in the end. Just let things go, so you don't frustrate yourself away from choosing to remain living with confidence and peaceability towards God and self. There will come another day. Ask the Lord to grant you those days with confidence in Him. Realize, you are serving the Lord, just not like angels do. This I say to you to enable you to wake up and smell the coffee. You are still walking in the salvation your God has given unto you, each and every day.
Another misconception I want to deal with, is the idea and belief that God puts or wants you to put a load of bricks on your back and shoulders you need to carry from this day forth. This I tell you for good, especially because the military who surveillances you might heckle you every moment of the day for sport and enjoyment, like they did me; because they believe they got nothing more pleasurable to do with their time. That's what it is, folks. Through and true. Just remember, Jesus, said in, Matthew 11:28-30, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto you souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." He assures you that, His burden is light. He knows that especially for most of us, it is impossible to transform ourselves into live and permanent angels, with immediacy. You will never succeed. Therefore, He did not make these requirements, though you are accountable to live sinless before Him, because He knows and understands the correct methods of saving you in stages. You can call upon Him for forgiveness, and He will save you from your sins and have fellowship with you, even so. He is determined to save you from your sins, so don't loose heart.
Paul said in, I Corinthians 3:2, "I have fed you with milk, and not with meat; for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet are ye able." What he spoke came from God, Himself. Therefore, do not frustrate yourself with major challenges and accomplishments in the Lord, seeing you are unable to achieve them. You will loose heart with major undertakings you are unable to bear. But, if it is your wish, go ahead and try them out, just don't allow the outcome of it to defeat your faith with disillusionments. I see it can be like the brothers of, Victory Outreach, who could not still break their drug addictions. They received the Lord Jesus Christ and also determined to be born again. They went through a time of birth pains. They became youths in the Lord and kicking them out of the things of God, would not have helped at all, but would shatter their faith and desires to continue seeking God. There are things that just take time. God wants to rehabilitate you to the state you were once in, when you were a child, an automatic citizen of the kingdom of God, like He said in, Mark 10:14, that, "...Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not; for of such is the kingdom of God."
Stop living doing things with irritations, grievousness, over loading yourself to complete a thing for the Lord, wherewith anger and troubles of the flesh and spirit are birthed. Don't fight to force yourself to live for Him with tensions, stressing yourself with irritations and frustrations. Throw the ton of bricks away and start dominating your goings, instead, by establishing your victories over what you can accomplish with certainty first. Once that couple of bricks are surely established in the Lord, begin carrying other ones, till you finish building your life in the Lord. Consider, you will come to complete building your born again lifestyle in the Lord; but then you will have to begin building again your lifestyle of enduring unto the end, like Jesus said you should, so that you will inherit eternal life with Him in heaven. This is when you will be married with Him, for sure. If you want to complete it all by automatically transforming yourself into an angelic saint without fail in the Lord, you will fail, because you have not the training nor the strength that enables you to exist that way, yet. You need to first exercise yourself to complete the other things, before you can have the strength to enable you to take on the other harder and much needed things, to accomplish living a life worthy of eternal salvation. It must become a habit, and this can only exist with you exercising yourself to practice the things of the Lord in stages and in separate ways to enable your mastery over these distinct matters. For instance, practice trainings in the Lord to defeat sins separately. Then, practice trainings of doing service to Him, separately. These sessions may take a day or more, each, to achieve masteries. There are others too, like fastings, doing good deeds, and etc. And when you cannot lift any more or you just don't feel like it anymore, stop, and ask the Lord to bless your efforts and achievements, then begin again, some other time.
TIPS ON LIVING A SURVEILLANCED CHRISTIANITY – PART II OF IV
