Is anyone else getting these? I've had two recently. Today's is posted in below!
I have as well. So this is one of the reasons why I am so thankful I consume copious amounts of high quality garlic.
This fellows 'message' sounds 'voo-doo' like. I could see how a new believer, who came out of the occult; but who is still not well grounded in the faith, might be disturbed by this fellows 'mumbo-jumbo
there are any weaker brothers or sisters out there that have received this silly message...good news: "Fear not"
! 'Love cast out all fear'. God, who has accepted you "into the beloved"
(Christ is the 'beloved'...God's Son...his beloved Son), is not going to hear and honor this deviants prayer
. Why not? Read what this person is saying and asking: he is asking God - which 'god' I do not rightly know; but he is asking some god to do things that the God of Scripture (your God, the true God) does not do. Good news right?!!!
But if he (or she) is trying to pray to the true God, the Creator God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the Father of Lights, and Father of the Jesus of Nazareth...the Lord Jesus who is the Messiah: Well you can be certain that this God, your God and Heavenly Father is not like this cognitive challenged fellow.
Your Heavenly Father, not only is the One who created the concept of prayer and gave all kinds of encouraging words to motivate us to call upon him (to make our requests and petitions known to him), he also established "the due order"
in which we are to do so.
Your Heavenly Father, the God of all Creation, is not blind or mentally challenged, as if he cannot help but blindly answer this fellows 'prayers' against you, and grant his request.
God is not thinking: "Oh no! That fellow who sent that private message to [insert name] at grace__.com; I hope he doesn't ask me to take the blessings of wisdom, protection, health, money, good looking wife/husband/kids/dog (etc.) away from [insert name], and then ask me to give them to him; and then ask I transfer all the curses and afflictions he has and give them to his poor victim!
If he does, I just don't know what I'll do?!!! [wringing of Heavenly hands]
I don't want to that; but what can I do; I have to do what he asks don't I?
If only I had put more qualifying statements in this whole prayer thing I created...some kind of exception clauses or loop-holes; then I wouldn't have to worry about these kinds of people twisting my arm."
JUST A LITTLE ABOUT PRAYER
There are certain things which in order for God to hear and grant us our petitions and requests; we have to be in harmony with what he says about all this.
The long and short of this, is that God is good and only does good. He is not and will not grant the prayers of this or any other person who ask such foolish, UNSCRIPTURAL and cruel things that is being asked by this person.
"FRET NOT THYSELF BECAUSE OF EVIL DOERS"
Be as unmoved and unconcerned of this fellows foolishness as Nehemiah was of those who tried to create a stir in him, attempting to distract him from his business:"Now it came to pass, when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and Geshem the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies, heard that I had builded the wall, and [that] there was no breach left therein; (though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates;)
"That Sanballat and Geshem sent unto me, saying, Come, let us meet together in [some one of] the villages in the plain of Ono. But they thought to do me mischief.
"And I sent messengers unto them, saying, 'I [am] doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?'
"Yet they sent unto me four times after this sort; and I answered them after the same manner."
Now to pray for our enemies. "Father, bless this person with your presence, that he or she might come to the true knowledge of You; and in time to come, that they being redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, will be able to testify that when they acted evil, they received love in return, blessing instead of cursing; and received the knowledge of the truth; for the ignorance of the lie"
So though I say this fellow in 'cognitively challenged', this is true, it is not a put down. Their mind is alienated from God and cannot think aright, being not in the Light, but in darkness. So I want to say to them if they some how end up here reading these posts:
You have not by happenstance found your eyes reading this. Yes you came to this site, for whatever reason your father had for you to come here. But being that he is not in control of even his own fate to come (you can read about Satan's or the Devil's final end in the scriptures of truth); he cannot anticipate when the Father of Lights is in his wondrous grace, wisdom and mercy about to 'pluck one from the fire' (as it were); you may be one of those so chosen to be given life eternal.
So repent my friend. Start asking, petitioning and requesting God how to do so in truth.
Satan is a very cruel 'father'. We have a wonderful glorious Father. Come to him, through Christ's gracious offer of being your substitutional-sacrifice on your behalf. His death paid your penalty for sin; he died so you can live.
Take him up on this offer. If you do, he will receive you and cleanse you of your sins and iniquities - if
you make that kind of request
your prayer to him
.I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Him hath God exalted with his right hand [to be] a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.
Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and [then] to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
"Taste and see that the LORD is good"
tooglercollma. Feel free to send me another message if ever desire - next time, asking questions that will lead to life. Or informing me of the joy that occurred in Heaven over your repentance some day!
