Spirit Chronicles: Healing Breath of My Guardian Angel

I have had a bad back for several years and lately it has gotten much worse. I have sciatica and lower back muscle issues that keep me from sleeping comfortably most nights. This also limits what I can do physically and was one of the main reasons that I retired from coaching football a few seasons ago. I would hurt really bad after three days of practice and by Thursday and Friday night Football games. I had gotten to the point lately that it was getting harder and harder to function in getting things I needed to do done daily. I began to pray about healing and asking God for healing back a few weeks ago.

I was sincere in seeking his grace and healing and waited patiently. A week ago I was asleep and was dreaming a nice dream about heaven and God. I was suddenly laying on my belly at the feet of an angel that stood way over nine feet tall. In front of her was a guardian spirit, a man I have seen many times that is ancient and looks after me. He gently grabbed my head and told me to lie still and he pushed my head down into water I was lying in about six inches deep. That made me react to going under the water like most people would be pulling my head up. He again said relax and believe and pushed my head into the water again.

As my face submerged into the shallow water I relaxed like I was in the pool at home and submitted to the guardians request. I then felt him lean across my body and blow a cool breath of air at the location where my back has hurt for many years. It was the coolest I have ever felt as if someone blew liquid ice across my lower back. But the difference was it did not hurt at all. I woke up instantly and my wife was lying in bed playing a card game on her phone. She knew instantly something amazing had happened and ask me what it was.

I felt my back and since I had been under the covers every part of my body was lukewarm due to being under the covers. Every part of my body except that one spot on my back. I was ice cold like an ice pack had been on it for twenty minutes. The pain had gone away and I was healed. I had also been praying about going back into football coaching and pursuing a head coaching job. But I knew that the back would not allow me to do that.

I fell back to sleep amazed that my back was not hurting and slept very well the balance of the night. I woke up and went to the bathroom early that morning, hopped right out of bed and went and walked normal for the first time in years. I went back to bed and was doing some meditating what I call “tunnel time” which is when I see, hear and feel spirit while I am vey relaxed. Just as I was ending tunnel time I heard a male say “he wants to coach again”. Then a female said “then go coach”. That was confirmation that I had been given a miracle and that God has a plan for me coming.

I am not sure where I will coach again, but I will soon and my back will not get into the way. Today I was a little sore after a lot of outside activity, but I continue to sleep like a baby with no moving around, tossing and turning. I walk upright as I should and feel very strong. I have been healed by the spirit of God and my guardian did it. I am Thankful for God, his grace, my Angels and Guardians. Ask yours for help, pray about it and be patient and a miracle can come your way.

Jeremiah 17:14; Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.

1st Samuel 12:16; Now therefore stand still and see this great thing that the Lord will do before your eyes.

Faith: Christian Character

Being a person of faith requires us to be committed to a cause of good and right. We must stand firm, stand strong and be faithful in life. Today I was reading the Bible about good character and being a good person. Character is defined as the actions, reactions, morals, views and mental awareness of a person. God defines character in Galatians 5: 22-23; as “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law”. Lets take a quick look at each of these characteristics of a good person as given to us by God. These are his expectations for life and being of good character.

Love- Loving others is the first step to building relationships, managing relationships and living your best life. We have to love one another through the good, bad and ugly.

Joy- We must live a life of joy. We must have inner peace and joy in our lives to maintain a healthy relationship with people and God. God is joy so live life with joy.

Peace- Living a life that is full of strife, anxiety and craziness does not offer peace. We need peace in life to have a healthy attitude and mental outlook.

I could go on and on about all of these virtues, characteristics God calls us to have. I only ask that you sit down, do some thinking, do some research and reading about what it takes to be of good character. If you follow this simple verse from God’s word you can live your best life and meet his expectations along the way. Submit yourself to being kind, patient, loving, faithful, gentle and good. Read the verses below for more word of God on how to live your life and be the best character you can. That will let your light shine to others and make the world a better place for all.

Philippians 4:8; Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Romans 12:2; Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

1st Corinthians 15:31; Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”

Spirit Chronicles: The Demon Temptress of 11A

I dreamed I was at a motel on the 3rd floor on a nice vacation with my wife, family and friends. The entire time we were there my wife was not paying any attention to me and only hanging out with the friends and family. I got bored being alone so I started walking down the steps to go outside and see the beach and get so e fresh air. My phone rang and it was a number I had never seen and before I could touch the phone to accept or deny the call the phone call went active on its on. On the other end I heard scrambled voices, screams, and scary people talking to me. A lady said “you don’t need her anymore”. A man said “just walk away from all that”.

I knew the voices were demonic and told them to go away and leave me alone. I told them I was happy and had no intention of leaving my wife. As I went down the final step a door appeared out of nowhere blocking my path to the front door. I felt an urge to knock on it. One of my relatives that is a prayer warrior was in the dream and he touched me on the shoulder and told me not to knock or open the door. I felt the urge so I knocked and a large black lady as big as the door opened the door and I am around six feet tall and was staring at her breast plate. She had to be over seven feet tall and as wide as the door.

She looked at me and said “I can take care of you, leave her now”. My family prayer warrior grabbed me and said get away from her now and then my wife stepped down the steps and told me to get away from her. I knew as soon as she opened the door she was a demonic temptress sent to try and mess with my mind. I told her I was not interested because I knew what she was and why she was there. I was also not interested in here physically so I told her to go away. She tried to grab me but I pushed her off and then the door slammed shut and I was thrust back upstairs and around my family.

I awoke and wrote down the dream and began to process it. The devil tempts all of us with physical, emotional and spiritual forces trying to tap into our biggest fears, needs, wants and desires. We have to stand strong and not allow him and his minions to win our souls. Being a light worker (a person that helps) people find God and the light this comes with the territory. The battle of good and evil rages on and some will fall to the devils trickery while others will defeat it and be of the light. Choose the light and stay strong for the darkness the devil offers is bleak, scary, misguided and deceptive.

Faith: Teach Me Lord To Be A Role Model For My Student/Athletes

Today I was reading about how we all serve in some capacity as a teacher. Whether we are a school teacher, Sunday school teacher, coach, mentor, boss, manager, trainer or parent we spend portions of our time teaching. As a veteran teacher my goal is to consistently model the behavior, actions, language and professionalism that I would expect a teacher to model for my own children when they attended school. Keeping a focus on that can be challenging on some days, especially when the week is grinding to a halt and you have been dealing with teenagers and teenager things all week. The same applies to managers, parents, bosses, coaches and others as our patience, leadership and example is tested daily as we fulfill our chosen career paths and dreams. I pray for God to guide me and inspire me through his word to be the best possible husband, father, brother, friend, family man, coach, teacher and mentor I can be.

More importantly I want to be the best Christian example I can for my student athletes. That does not require you to cross the lines between religion and schools to accomplish this goal. If you model the best behavior, speak, listen, guide and lead your organization, team or classroom with a sound fundamental set of biblical values then they will see the light in you. They will know who you really are, what you are about and what you value. I have recently been working with a young lady that has a really bad home life and she has been challenged for sure in her life time. The parents are not role models for her and she has began to follow their lead. As her teacher I have taken on the task of modeling behavior for her that she needs to understand about real life when she becomes an adult.

Over the period of a few weeks I have already seen a difference in her thought pattern, language and attitude. She ask me one day why I was always so cheerful and happy. I could only say to her that I was blessed to be here working with my student athletes and peers. I told her that we all choose our path of life and can overcome challenges laid before us. I told her we can change our lives for the better and break the cycle of poverty, drugs, violence, single mom issues and other things that she witnesses daily. She smiled and said I beleive I can do that Coach. That is what we do as teachers, we work daily to inspire our people to build a brighter future, face obstacles head on and challenge life. We can do this by modeling the behavior we expect from them as if they were our own children.

It is not my job to tell them how to think, live or act. It is my job to show them that living a happy, healthy and fruitful life will reap them the benefits they deserve and desire. John Maxwell wrote that “God uses ordinary people who are obedient to him to do extraordinary things”. That quote sticks out to me and I like to seek Gods grace, guidance and mercy as I pursue being extra for my kids, family, friends and community. You can be extra in a good way if you are obedient and model the behaviors God expects of us.

Daily Bread: Seven Ways to Spend Renewal Time With God

1- Spend time with God first thing in the mornings. Get out of bed five minutes earlier grab a cup of coffee sit down and read a couple chapters in your favorite book. I like having a study bible handy with specific chapters or passages based on what is on my mind.

2- Invite Gods Presence into your life. Ask God for guidance, leadership and his ever steady watch over you daily. Pray for grace, mercy, patience, understanding and inner peace as you begin your attack on each days activity.

3- Use mobile Bible apps to listen to the word. Have it read to you and get sent occasional reminders to pray, read and rest in the word.

4- Meet God in different places and times. Find a quiet place for lunch or walk in the park during lunch. Go outside in the morning or early evening and talk to God. Chill in your car and talk to God. Hike into the woods and talk to God and get back to nature.

5- Take a long warm cleansing shower. Water is healing and cleansing to the mind, body and soul. Use the energy of the water flowing on you to amplify your connection to God. Be willing to open up, break down, cry, celebrate, laugh and many other emotions that may come as you cleanse yourself spiritually and physically with a good long shower.

6- Pray in groups with friends, family or on text or phone chains, Lift each other up everyday and feel the power of two or more people lifting you or someone else up. There is power in prayer and the way it rises up.

7- Be Thankful for spiritual support, blessings, guidance, grace and forgiveness. Thank God daily for his enduring love, patience and role in your life.

Be Blessed, Bless Others, Pray, Grow Spiritually and Seek God.

Addiction- The Real Toll It Takes on the Family

This week I lost a family member to something that breaks millions of people and wrecks their lives. I am talking about addiction and they come in a variety of ways and means. Addiction to drugs takes over a persons body and eventually takes over their soul. Everything becomes about that high, that short term good feeling and each time a needle hits the arm or drugs are put into a mouth a little more of that persons fate is decided and life begins to be lost. Some may find this to be too much and that is OK. But for me I have to speak to the damage that drugs, street life and addiction does to a family and not just the person.

Drugs destroy families, destroy relationships and strips people of their potential to be great and do good things for people. Drug addiction is a path of destruction that hurts so many people and leaves a legacy of damage to the parents, siblings, and children of the end user. The children of those that die from drugs are the real victims here. The people that take drugs and die from that high chose to do so. They chose a path of destruction over their family and kids. They chose to do what they wanted to instead of doing what was right for their family. I may sound a vit angry in this and I am.

I have witnessed close family suffer emotionally and be scarred for life by the actions of a drug addict that refused over and over, many times over to stop what they were doing and get clean. Instead of surrounding themselves with supportive family and friends they chose drug culture and the so called easy way out. Well that culture ended up costing a life and costing the children of this person a lifetime of questions about “why” my parent chose dope over me.

Stop the madness, step away, get counseling, get a job, get a life, do whatever you can to stop addiction. If you don’t it will certainly cost you family, friends, jobs, life and eventually give you death. And your death leaves those behind wanting to see you, hear you, touch you and just be near you. God can cure addiction and you can also if you want it bad enough and decide enough is enough. To those that have beaten addiction, awesome and best wishes forward. To those that lost someone to addiction, I am sorry for your loss and feel your pain and frustration.

God Bless!

Politics: Shamed, Demeaned and Cancelled- Woke Cancel Culture

Todays writing may hit a few nerves so I give advance notice. If it turns you off or offends your feelings then please read another person postings. However, my hope would be that because we may disagree on this does not mean we have to quit following one another or reading each others work. I am writing this because I am tired of seeing my friends, family and co-workers that do not agree with liberalism, socialism, Democrats or woke culture get cancelled, called stupid and demeaned because they disagree or have a differing opinion of this new movement in America. We have this thing that the country was founded on called the Constitution and it guarantees certain rights under the law.

One of those rights is the first amendment otherwise know as 1A. That gives people the individual right to speak freely, freedom of the press, choose the religion of their choice, “peacefully” gather to protest and petition the government. If your not aware of it go to google and see what it is about. It seems that we have a new culture of people that are now dead set on infringing on this very right from what appears to be a lack of understanding of what it represents “individual right to speak freely” without being censored. I have a suspicion it is being taught to these people by liberal woke teachers and professors in schools. Once again, that is my opinion so that is what it is, an “opinion”.

We can prove that it is all over social media, television, internet sites and the left wing mass media groups. Some of the largest companies in the world are shutting free speech down, especially if it does not agree with their woke ness and views. Heck, this one may get shutdown, but that is OK because I have my rights and refuse to be told how to think, act, behave or get re-engineered to meet someone else’s standards. I will write about my beliefs, opinions, views based on my set of morals and how I think.

I exercise my right to free speech just as most people do on social media sometimes and I do not post things with intent to harm or offend anyone. I simply post things of interest to me that meet the values, beliefs and issues that are important to me as a man, husband, father, teacher, coach and Christian. What has spurred this posting today was a simple picture I posted about gas prices. It showed the price at $2.55 per gallon and I had recently bought gas at the same place a month ago in mid December for around $2.10 a gallon.

Instead of reading the posting and either liking it or stating some type of opinion, suddenly I was hit with replies that I am basically stupid, do not know what I am talking about and other comments. The intent was to show that my idea of progress is not paying .45 more cent per gallon at the pump. It suddenly turned into a posting with liberals posting fact checking, stats and columns from guess where, liberal media sites and outlets. I am an educated man with two Bachelor degrees (one in Business Management) and a Masters Degree with advanced education.

I am smart enough to think for myself, form an opinion and post it without being told by a woke person or liberal that I am stupid and my opinion does not count. Then it expanded into conservatives versus liberal, then it went into Trump versus Biden and what they did or did not do. All over a freaking picture of gas prices simply asking to “please explain how paying more for gas is progress”. I got replies about the Texas storm, renewable energy and other stats. What I wanted was explain to me how going backwards is progress.

(IMO) shutting down the pipeline is impacting gas prices and anyone who cannot see that well I won’t say what I am thinking because then I am part of the problem then. Think of it like this, you own an oil company and have an unlimited supply at minimum cost. The system works and everyone getting it from you is good and its easier on their pocket book. Why in the hell would you sell it to your neighbor, give him control over pricing so he can charge people whatever and think that is progress. Paying higher prices, taxes, costs, losing jobs, losing industry, and many other progressive views cannot be progress. Going backwards is not progress, hell it is actually going backwards.

Does a football running back take the ball and run the wrong way? Does a tractor trailer load heading west turn around and waste time driving East? Does a person wanting to lose weight instead purposely gain 10 pounds? These are silly but tell the story of who truly may not be as “woke” as they think they are. Personally I think as a country we need energy independence while working towards a better future with some green energy options.

The very same people stating I am stupid and do not understand get in their car everyday and drive to work using what “gas”. Gast that is made from oil. Oil that was coming from America and Canada mostly. Duh, dumbass and they want to tell me conservatives speak out of one side of their mouth. Yes, I was told I speak out of one side of my mouth during this posting. Honestly I speak what I consider to be the truth and it comes straight out with no BS, make you feel good sugar coating.

It then turned to Trump and Biden and who is the best and all that bull crap. If you like Biden, good for you and I hope it works out for us all. If you like Trump or King Kong it is your business, opinion and thought process. For the cancel culture folks, please explain to me how tearing up cities, destroying the past and rioting makes things better? Explain to me how a movement that claims to want equality is trampling on the very rights they claim to need. Explain to me how some people of all races, colors, creeds and religions make it in life while others don’t. Explain to me how me and other working class people owe anyone a damn thing.

I have been working over thirty five years and no one ever punched the clock for me and did my job, no one paid my car payment, college loan or mortgage. Why in the hell do we need to do that for basement dwelling college dropouts that will not work because they are “professional gamers”. I refuse to be cancelled, re-conditioned, changed, woke, harrassed or believe that anyone else’s thought process or opinion of me is valid if it involves hate, malice, anger or resentment. You see that is the root of the problem (IMO). The bible clearly states that these things are unGodly and create issues within us.

For the woke generation and cancel culture people reading this. Do your research, use your mind to think and form your opinions, values and beliefs on how you feel and not how others tell you to feel. Stand on your own, be an adult and respect others regardless of how they agree or disagree with you. I will end by saying I could have “cancelled” those people. I could have “erased” the posting. I could have fought back, sent hateful and resentful remarks.

Instead I just read what they had to say, absorbed it and was an adult about it. If I was to unfollow the people that disagreed with me I would then be part of the problem and not the solution. If I was to erase the posting to stop the banter back and forth, then I am giving into their demands and trying to erase or cancel the past.

I will post, read, react and exercise my rights as given to me by the Constitution of this great country. I will consider other views and opinions, but ultimately I will be guided by my belief systems, views and moral code. I refuse to be woke, cancel out the past and allow my country to go to hell in a hand basket by being told how to act, think, behave or believe. I am smart enough to do that for myself whether one agrees with me or not. That is all!

Faith: The Foundation for A Successful Life

The Foundation of Life

In the sermon on the mount, Jesus spoke about having humility, love and living a prayerful life.  He addressed the masses on how to live a full Christian life and what it took to meet that standard.  Let’s think about this for a minute.  The anointed one, God’s only son Jesus stood there and spoke to the crowd giving them the ultimate message and knowledge.  This was actually God’s word directly from the source of life.  What an experience that must have been, Jesus telling a parable right there to those people.

I can picture the scene in my head and it is one of my favorite passages in the bible.  Jesus taught that following stated religious laws and methods did not meet the standards that God had set forth.  God set the gold standard by sending Jesus to earth to witness to mankind, die and ascend back to heaven to serve forever at God’s side.  The pharisees and their followers were not happy with this and didn’t buy it.  What they taught was in direct opposition of God’s will and word.  Following a process or procedure does not make you holy or Christlike.

Jesus directly stated that righteousness is attained by deciding to make an internal decision to have a personal relationship with God.  You must acknowledge that Jesus is the savior of all sinners.  He is worthy of all praise, honor and your commitment.  Question is, are we worthy of his honor and commitment?  

In the sermon on the mount Jesus spoke of the parable of the two houses.  One which was built on a weak foundation and when the storm came it crumbled away.  The other house was built on solid rock.  It was built on a solid foundation and it withstood the storm.  Jesus is that foundation we must have in our lives or we will crumble in the storm.  Build a relationship based on Jesus as the rock, Jesus as the foundation and watch what happens.  He can help you endure all of life’s storms and overcome them without fear.

I wrote a book not long ago and I spoke about many life events that would have crushed me along the way.  I talked about disappointments, injuries, deaths and all kinds of things that we face as humans.  I always leaned on Jesus, but had I not had him I would have perished mentally, physically and spiritually during those times.  Give Jesus your heart, tell the world what he has done for you and be faithful that he will be your foundation in life.  

  1. Is Jesus your foundation of life?
  2. Will you allow God to change you so life will not rule you?

Jesus, thank you for being my rock of life.  Thank you for the foundation you gave us to stand on by giving your life for me and all the sinners of the world.  I pray your spirit spreads globally and becomes the rock of life for all mankind before it is too late. Amen

Matthew 5:1-7:29 Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him. And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Motivational: Winning In Life Mindset

Today I am writing about having a winning mindset in life.  The definition of winning is to gain victory, overcome an opponent, gain status or conquer something or someone.  As a career football, wrestling and softball coach I have spent the better part of my adult life trying to win sporting events.  I have had my fair share of victories along the way and accomplished some pretty amazing goals.  

However, I have had tough losses along the way and learned as much, maybe more from those defeats about dealing with life and its shortcomings.  As a player I had the opportunity to be on some really good teams one in particular in college that was undefeated and a championship program.  As a high school coach I have been part of state caliber programs, coached on conference and regional title teams.  

On goal I have as a head coach is to win the ultimate prize, and that is a team state title in football or wrestling.  I have won conference titles and had numerous conference, regional and a few state championship caliber wrestlers.  However, the elusive team title has remained a target of mine to this day.  As I head into the later years of my coaching career (retired from football) for now in 2018 and am still an active head wrestling coach.  

I have work to do and am seeking that team title which would top things off for me and allow me to walk away on my terms and completely satisfied with how things ended. However, if that elusive team title never comes, then I will be OK going forward knowing that I did about as much as I could to gain that title, but it may not be in the formula or plan of my life.

Winning in sports and life are very similar as both take dedication, discipline and determination to overcome obstacles, bumps in the road and setbacks to continue to get up everyday and fight for your goals.  As a career teacher, coach and mentor I have kept the same type of plan for success in work, family, life and spiritual and so far it has been rewarding and a fun journey.  One of wins, losses, hills, bumps, straight roads, dirt roads, valleys and mountains.  

The only way to have gotten through all those was to do the three things mentioned above.  You can google winning at life or sports and get a million ideas, thoughts, plans and actions to follow to be successful.  Below are my four things I like to do to pursue my goals, dreams and the opportunities God gives me.

1- Know where you are and where you want to be.

2- Make a plan for success, analyze it and tweak it as needed to stay on track.

3- Focus on your mental, physical, spiritual, work, life, family, relationship and other goals with dedication, determination and discipline.  

4- Do not try anything without God in the plan.  Make sure to give it to him, pray for guidance and strength to overcome and battle to get where you want to be.

Lastly, never quit on yourself, your family or your dreams and goals, staying on top will be even harder to maintain.  At that point you have to focus on the three D’s above even more so and know that a fall from the top may occur, but once you have reached that pinnacle of success in life, sports, jobs, relationships, and spirituality no-one can take that away from you.  No-one can slight your accomplishments because you know what it took to get there.  Winning at life is fun and is an adventure.  Embrace your gifts, opportunities and seek them with vigor using the three D’s.  Pray to God for guidance and watch what happens!

Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

2nd Timothy 2:5, An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.

Lord, make me a winner at life.  Make me a winner with my family, friends and relationships.  Help me to focus through you on the three D’s to become what I know you want me to be.  Amen

Faith: Stand With God

2nd Timothy 3: 1-5 , “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people”.

As we have now entered a time in mankind’s history where the devil begins to have his way with the lost and is able to mislead people with promises that cannot be kept. The saved will also will tempted just as Jesus was by the devil. The devil offered Jesus everything but he refused and “stood” with his father. Worldly feelings, wants and needs will take over peoples hearts and begin a time of trouble. Those that remain faithful to the Lord will be revealed to him and will rise above the lost and shine the light of heaven to others. Jesus will push his word to all corners of the world proclaiming his coming kingdom and it will be the last chance for redemption and salvation.

Those that look away and seek the worldly way will perish and those that stand with God will have eternal life through the blood of Jesus Christ. God is in control so do not worry or suffer as the devil will have his due. This will come to pass as written by many in both the old and new testament. His return will shake the world, trumpets will sound, a light like no other will shine and his crown will be restored.

Proverbs 6: 16-19 “There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers”. God is in control! Stay strong of faith, seek God’s counsel and Open your eyes and heart to him. Do not be deceived by the Wolf in Sheep’s clothing.

Matthew 24: 4-10, “And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.”

Jesus, thank you for being my rock of life.  Thank you for the foundation you gave us to stand on by giving your life for me and all the sinners of the world.  I pray your spirit spreads globally and becomes the rock of life for all mankind before it is too late. Amen

Matthew 5:1-7:29 Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him. And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Spirit Chronicles: Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

Last night I went outside to just sit down in a chair in the cool November air and look at the stars. It was a very clear night, cold with no clouds above and the view was awesome. I saw sparkling stars and God’s wondrous creation at it finest. I took the opportunity of the quietness to seek God’s word and prayed to him asking for a message to write today. I have been dreaming visions for many years and this election has been heavy on my mind and soul lately. I am not talking about republican vs. democrat garbage, but Godly concerns and the deception that is stealing the minds, hearts and souls of America.

My prayer was answered and I dreamed about a man, a deceitful man that was all about power.  This man was corrupt and not decent.  Men envied him and woman secretly wanted to lie with him.  He had a power over people and was an expert at lying, cheating and deceiving people.  His intentions are opposite of what he says he will do.  He is bad for not only America, but the world.  I asked God for a message and it was received.  I now say this to you, be careful to be mislead and vote for a so called “change” because the people behind this change lie in wait and are a wolf in sheep’s clothing. 

Colossians 2:8, See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

He will turn his back on the very ones that put him in power.  He will begin the downfall of America and usher in a time like none have seen.  I tell you the man I saw was a stately older man that had made a lifetime of deceiving and lying to people.  He believes in things that are immoral and is not whom he claims to be.  He is part of a greater plan to dismantle America and begin the downfall of all mankind, If he gains power, those around him will eat him alive, throw him to the fires and begin the devils work.

Mark 7: 20-23, And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.

The devil made many promises to Jesus in the temptation of Christ. Jesus stood strong and refused those things which were power, money and deceit. Do not sell your soul or the soul of this great country and world out to this movement of evil ideals. Turn to God now and open your heart, which will open your eyes to what truly is being offered up to you. With those offerings of things will come a cost much greater than any taxes, it will be a cost of life, liberty and religious freedoms. God is watching and ultimately do as he sees fit. He will make the wrongs right and will always rule regardless of the devilish plans of others.

Proverbs 6: 16-19, There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

Lord I pray for an awakening of hearts, minds and spirits today. I pray we see through the lying, cheating, and destruction that it creates in our world. I pray people seek you before they vote today and not blindly vote based on personal demonic views. Amen
