Science and God
As for the people who say there is no afterlife the same applies. If they are right you can do anything and believe anything and it makes no difference. You can even throw science out the window with this thinking because science says energy can't be destroyed.
AH! Yes, science lends credibility that God might actually exist! Why? Because God is energy! And energy can't be destroyed. Energy can be converted, it can be contained in some cases, it can be utilized but it cannot be destroyed.
Our Creator established the fabric upon which all creation both seen and unseen exists. This concept was first given to Enoch, 7th generation from Adam and Eve.
Enoch wrote while in the presence of God and the angels and said basically God called forth to the unseen which is above and called it down and he called to that which is unseen from below and brought it up. This process is a never ending process that had no beginning and has no ending. It is the description of the creation of atomic matter, the fabric of all of creation. It is the description of the birth of a nebula. A nebula is what a galaxy is created out of and yes it takes billions if not trillions of years. It's happening all the time and we can see these nebulas and galaxies being formed and we know it is a process of God's creation.
Everything in all of existence is by design. Nothing happened out of what some refer to as chaos. The concept of order out of chaos is a human term based on human intelligent and lack of comprehension. Science is based upon human's endeavor to understand what God has done and why. It is a human learning process. The more science learns the more they see how nothing is by chance, that everything is by design and with purpose.
Energy is omni-present and eternal. Everything has some form of energy. Every living thing has an electrical charge. Spirits are energy, our bodies contain physical mass, an electrical charge and a spirit that is energy and cannot be destroyed. But if the people who say God does not exist and there is no after-life are correct none of these concepts hold any validity.
Several religions teach that we must have respect not only for others, but for the planet and all living things. Another teaches you must die killing innocent people in order to please their god. Let's face it they can't both be right.
Another religion teaches that order comes out of chaos. Good cannot exist without evil and light can not exist without darkness, etc. Some concepts hold a grain of truth but ultimately do not hold the key to anyone's salvation.
There are some who believe it's better to believe in something than nothing at all. I tend to agree with this thinking but must say what we believe in is important but must add that how hard we try to find the truth is also important. Whether or not we find the truth is even more important. How we get there however can be somewhat illusive since sometimes it's not the amount of effort we put into it but rather how much we are willing to accept the truth regardless of what we want to believe in. Some people are extremely devoted to their religions and miss the mark completely. They won't know how lost they are until the end. Salvation however is a gift from our Creator and you can't earn it, but you can accept it.
What is science? My definition of the word is the study of those things which God has created. ;-) Yes and that's exactly what it is. Are scientists always right? Of course not, their human and humans constantly make mistakes. They come up with wild unsubstantiated ideas and theories that couldn't be further from the truth. One of these is known as "The Big Bang Theory." It breaks my heart to see highly intelligent people holding fast to ridiculous ideas. Do you know how big a THING/ball/planet/sun/etc would have to be to explode and fill infinite space? It would have to be infinitely large, in which case there would be no space. Humans can't even comprehend such terms and therefore sometimes speak from their infinitely growing lack of wisdom and knowledge. It's no wonder the prophecy said in those days the simple will confound the wise. Another thing that makes me sad is when I see people holding onto incorrect religious concepts who grasp onto some ludicrous scientific concept like the Big Band Theory and use that to explain how God created everything in just 6 earth days.
The Bible and Religion
There are Christian religions today who believe the Bible is the living word of God. Many of these people believe that since God is without flaw and without blemish the Bible itself is without flaw or blemish. They couldn't be further from the truth. Having met Christ the Creator in spirit and having several other prophetic encounters with Him I can tell you for a fact the Bible is not the Living Word of God, Christ the Creator is. (* See my personal experiences pages.)
The Bible was not only written by humans it was compiled and translated by flawed humans some of which had their own sins to cover and their own agendas to achieve. Books were left out that should have been included. We refer to some of these as "The Lost Books of the Bible" and "The Forgotten Books of Eden." You see Enoch was the first of the sons of men to write and he wrote 365 books while in the presence of God and the angels and gave those books to the descendants of Seth, his relatives. He knew the earth was not only round but revolved around the Sun. He knew the galaxy was millions if not billions of years old. He was the one who recorded the first account of the creation. He was the one who's works were being referred to by Moses in the creation stories Gen. 1 and 2 which are the very shortest versions of creation ever given.
The GREAT Six Days of Creation!
Many who believe the Bible is without flaw refuse to look anywhere else for evidence of the truth for fear they will find something that indicates something about their translation and understanding of the Bible may be in error. One example is the reference to the so called "six days" that God took to create everything in all of existence.
More to come. Questions and answers about various religious things soon to come.
The young lady who asks the following question has had an interesting life so far. She was caught up in the things of the world only to be taken captive by a religious cult. Finally she found her way out but not without mental and emotional scars. God led her to find this website and I've been doing my best to answer her questions. These are questions everyone should have asked if they haven't yet so I will share them with you.
Question > Bryon! what do you think of this church..
they have videos there too!...tell me what you think..
so..is it possible that maybe some people here are mixed up with holy spirit filled and also spirit of religion?
I really want to go to church..but I'm scared...I don't have to go to church do I? if I have him in my heart! right now..going to church reminds me of being in a cult.. :(
Some people feel the need to be entertained. They are drawn like a moth to the flame by flashing lights, music and people dancing. They feed upon the energy being sent out to them from the stage like a drug.
In the Lost Books of Eden we read how the descendants of Enoch were enticed to come down from their mountain by the descendants of Cain, with music and dance.
We read how when John the baptizer was captive in Harrods's prison that it was the daughter of the woman who Harrod was having an affair with who danced for Harrod in order to influence Harrod to hand her John's head on a platter. Because it was John who said Harrod was living in sin by taking another man's wife. Like many who live in sin doing immoral things the woman hated John for presenting her with the truth. Like some who live in sin her desire was to snuff out the light that shone upon her. She used deception enticing music sexually implicit dance in order to get what she wanted.
In the Bible we also read that when David was elected King of Israel he sang and danced. Not all song and dance is the same but it is an attractant. People love it and they are drawn to it.
A Letter Of Explanation
I tell people on my websites and in person not to read a few paragraphs of my work and think they have me figured out, because they don't. I'm not that easy to understand nor are the mysteries they want explained. Close friends and family who have known me most if not all of my life are shocked when they ask a question and I answer them in depth revealing details they wouldn't have guessed. The preachers can't explain it because they don't understand it either. Among the spiritually gifted speaking in tongues is easy. Search the world over and you will find very few preachers who have ever cast a demon(s) out of someone, cleaned a house of evil spirits or closed a portal to the underworld.
The following is a message I sent to someone who was literally drug though a series of distasteful events by another family member regarding the estate of their father. The lady wanted to know what caused it all.
The entire set of events was manipulated by a set or team of demons through their sub-demons.
Using what you might call a stacked deck and trigger events they tried to turn everyone against each other.
Person #1 packed the powder by taking everything he could get his hands on but in his own mind he was "saving it" from being lost. Person #4 lit the fuse and set off the chain of unpleasant events.
When a sub-demon works inside a person they alter their perceptions of the truth and reality. People do wrong things under their influence without seeing for themselves what they are actually doing. They see themselves as doing a good deed. As a result one of the symptoms of being called on their actions the demon has rationalized in their minds they speak what that demon tells them. "I have done no wrong." Meaning they were hypnotized from the beginning by the evil spirit to not be able to see the truth about their own actions.
The main sub-demon that's working on person #1 has been with him since he was a kid and the longer those things feed and work inside a person the bigger and more powerful they become.
Person #1 knew for a while that he has an evil spirit but instead of having it cast out of him he turned to hide himself in the bible. So the sub-demon was protecting itself by turning its host to the bible. Since the bible is not the Living Word of God it is no threat to the demon but it does give the host the sense of security. The bible literally becomes God to the host. It becomes a type of idol to that person. The demon is not afraid of the bible and becomes a refuge to it.
It's complicated sick and twisted but it happens all the time. There are millions of people who are full of a spirit of religion who have sub-demons who do the very same thing that person #1 has done. When the bible becomes God to a person then God Himself can't get past it to explain and reveal the truth to that person. As long as they continue to "hear" the voice of their subdemon they will not turn to God for salvation.
This is why I tell people the bible is an invaluable historical document for the purpose of instruction, it is not the Living Word of God.
The Living Word of God is Christ not the bible. The Living Word of God is in fact alive and can speak to anyone He wants clearly.
People get tangled up in the spirit of religion and they say "God doesn't speak to people anymore." Because most of those people don't have the Holy Spirit they have a spirit of religion. If they knew how lost they were it would scare the hell right out of them. But it won't make any sense because their spirit of religion tells them the bible is the Living Word of God and they have built their entire belief system upon that. To learn they were wrong all their life would be devastating to them.
Therefore since they believe the bible is the Living Word of God they can also believe any mistranslations as fact like believing that we are the first beings God ever made. Like believing that everything in all of Creation was created at the same time for us alone in just six earth days. To tell them there were ascended beings known as the Great Elders working in the Garden of Eden before Adam was ever created is not a concept they will accept. When the truth is revealed to them it will be crushing and there's no way to go back in time to fix their misunderstanding.
Insecurity Exists In Believing The Lie
Likewise they view science and those who work in that field as the enemy of God. They think without question that science is out to disprove the existence of God and in their hearts actually fear that science might succeed. They can't see the harder that science works the more they prove intelligent design. Science is not the enemy of God. It is the enemy of those who believe that it is the enemy of God.
All of those who have sub-demons and the spirits of religion have certain things in common and this is one of those things. All of them now and then will say something that gives clues as to the possibility of them having a sub-demon. I've had conversations with demons and evil spirits and I've heard what they say. When I hear a human say the same thing word for word I can be fairly sure that person has a demon in them I've met somewhere in the spirit world.
What Person #1 has is a spirit of religion that finds security in its host as a result. The bible is no danger to it. Ask him if he's ever cast a demon out of someone. Because Satan cannot cast out Satan nor can evil cast out evil.
The highly religious, those having a spirit of religion pray frequently and sometimes for long hours at a time. Most of their prayers are for others to "see the light" but not for them to see the truth. So Person #1 was praying his heart out for others to see the truth but he didn't want to know the truth himself, all he really wants is the loot.
So I say things like if you are praying for something you never seem to get change your prayer. It's like shooting at shadows. That's why they say if you want to bind the demon you need to know its name. At the very least you need to know where it is and what it's doing. But since Person #1 didn't realize and never thought for a second that he was a key part of the problem he wouldn't pray for himself to see the truth. Where-as I ask God to show me where the demon is and give me the ability to deal with it.
So Person #1 says "Dear God show Person #2 and Person #3 that terrible demon that's after them and make it go away."
I say "Dear God show me the demon and give me the ability to deal with it." I'm asking God to show me the truth and where the bad thing actually resides. People who have sub-demons will never ask God directly to reveal a truth to them when the problem resides within them. People with sub-demons will never turn back to God to save them because the Holy Spirit of God is a real threat to them.
None are blinder than those who refuse to see. None are deafer than those who refuse to hear. All the really bad things that have happened to him are a result of him not listening to God's instructions. He's not hearing God he's hearing the sub-demon speaking to him and thinks it's God. Something very similar happened to Mohammed when he was attacked and possessed by a demon in the cave. From then on it was the sub-demon speaking to him and him thinking it was God.
Do you have a Spirit of Religion?
Spirits of religion come in various shapes, sizes and denominations but they all alter a person's way of understanding certain things.
If you believe the written Bible is the Living Word of God.
If you believe everything in all of creation was made in 6 earth days just for our benefit.
If you think the earth is only 7000 years old.
If you think God sat around and did nothing for eternity then decided to do something 7000 years ago.
If you believe that Adam was the first human ever created by God. (He was the first of his genetic design.)
If you believe that Adam and Eve were alone on planet earth when they were evicted from the Garden of Eden.
If you believe the existence of dinosaur bones was put there to test your faith.
If you believe that God doesn't speak to His people anymore.
If you believe science is the enemy of God.
If you believe the special gifts have been done away with.
If you believe murdering people opens the gates of heaven to you or gets you a higher position.
If you believe there's going to be 70 (or any) virgins waiting on the other side.
Then yes, you have a spirit of religion and you need to get that fixed ASAP.
How To Get Rid Of A Spirit Of Religion
A spirit of religion is an energy sub-demon created by either the devil or one of his demon / fallen angels for the purpose of interacting with the living. Demons actually have bodies but sub-demons do not, they use people and other living things as hosts.
People who have sub-demons may realize it. People close to them may be aware they have a problem and some of them may actually seek help to remove the thing. People who have religious spirits / religious sub-demons are the hardest in the world to remove primarily because the host is in complete submission to the thing. They don't know they have a problem and they don't want to take the chance they might make a mistake. They think the thing is the Holy Spirit and they know that if they insult the Holy Spirit they they will never get the chance to become saved. Taking a step of faith in that direction is like Indiana Jones when he stepped off the ledge near the end of the Holy Grail. The fear factor is off the scale and the sub-demon uses it to control their host. What they fail to realize is seeking the Holy Spirit is not the unforgivable sin! Asking God over and over for the Holly Spirit does not upset Him. Asking Him for validation of the reception of the Holy Spirit does not bother Him.
As Jesus said concerning the religious leaders of his day, "leave them alone, they are blind guides." And they won't turn to him to have him heal them. It's not impossible but it is highly unlikely.
What they don't know is you don't actually have to cast that one out, all you have to do is return to God with an open heart and ask for the Holy Spirit through laying on of hands from someone who has it. The spirit of religion will not remain in someone who has the Holy Spirit as long as that person keeps asking God to show them the truth.
