Uncle Ben's (Almost Daily) WRITE 519- October/ 27/ 2008 South Wartzor

 

Peace,

I've been chucking out spirits etc, so I wasn't able to write for a few days.

Ben the terminator of religion.

I had no idea that the Lord would want to use me as much as he has done these last years. I love to do His will, bring it on Dad :-) Even though I get do do lots of boring stuff, I still get a kick out of it, since He is behind it all. I don't really care what He tells me to do, I just obey.

I used to be very shy.

I asked the Lord to remove my shyness, and He did. It was hard for me to witness to crowds, except on stage, but I was nervous. Now it's fun, because the Lord gave me a different perspective on things.

There's not a whole lot of diversity in Christian music, here in Europe.

I don't have much to listen to. I like many styles, but everything seems to be in the Hillsong/U2 tradition. That's ok at meetings, but not in the stereo (to me). I like innovative music, and since I rarely listen to worldly music, I don't get to listen to music much any more.

I like POD, Hero, Eric Bibb

I'm sure there's lots of cool music out there somewhere, that I'll never know of...I wish there was a Christian Rammstein-type band. I still like energy!

The stuff they sing at church is very boring musically.

But praise music works live, if everybody sings from the heart. The style doesn't really matter, it's the Spirit that counts. The Holy Spirit fills the room as soon as we really sing from the inside of us. Then the fun part starts.

The church that I go to is slightly different than other churches.

Sometimes the Holy Spirit comes very early in the meeting, and then we change the meeting to accommodate Him. We let Him take over. That's why I love going to Kvevlax Missionskyrka every wednesday at seven, whenever I'm able.

If I lived in the states, I would probably go to church every day.

 

Whatever you do, don't let the devil get you, Uncle Ben

If you would like to try Jesus for yourself, say this prayer from your heart, it will change your life!

Heavenly Father, forgive me my sins. Jesus I believe that you are the only son of God, please save me, come into my heart, and take over my life. Amen.

If you said the prayer, you are saved! For we are save by grace and nothing else, we can come as we are! Now thank Jesus for saving you. Welcome to the family! Check out god.tv on TV or the Internet, it is full of good spiritual guidance. Your life will change for the better!

Peace,

In a nearby field © Benjamin Antell

When I stayed at Unanderra Hostel, near Port Kembla, NSW in Australia as a kid, a guy came riding with a huge axe in one hand, and chopped the head off a big Black Snake "thump". It was a pretty jet black snake with a bright red-orange belly.

Why am I telling you this, I dunno, but it was a weird experience.

The Black Snake was the first snake I had ever held in my hands, headless just like the devil...actually the devil does have a head, for now. But he is fang less to us Christians, because Jesus defeated him, when He rose from the dead. So now the devil can only try to chomp at us with his gums.

I seem to irritate a lot of people here in Finland (as well) now.

Finland is crowded with atheists, and when you proclaim the Good News and salvation through Christ, many get angry. Not even all Christians believe in God as powerful any more. Why should they, they don't spend any time with Him, and they have no idea that the Holy Spirit is a person.

People sit at home drinking their beer of Fanta in front of the house altar (TV), and burp and fart. Nobody cares about he suffering ones, "give 'em some pills, so that they shut up", is what doctors seem to think most of the time. Man what a sorry mess we have created for ourselves.

Flying with the Orbs © Benjamin Antell

Still Jesus is standing with His arms outstretched, ready to receive anybody who wants to know Him.

God is ready to forgive us 70 times per day or more (if need be). We can all be set free from whatever bugs us. I'm sure glad that God reeled me in, I was a very boisterous beast...and stupid. God must love us something fierce, to want to save us, from our self destructiveness.

Some of my friends are angry at God for not helping them.

I don't think it's natural to expect help, if you just live for your own lusts. I have noticed that you receive, when you give. If we help others we receive great blessings ourselves.

How can God bless those in need, if we don't heed God's call and help them?

 

Whatever you do, don't let the devil get you, Uncle Ben

Peace,

Before I met God, I was interested in the Paranormal.

Benjamin Antell

Since meeting the Holy Trinity, I've lost all interest in the occult (paranormal is the same thing, it's all crap), because now I know that satan is the author of it.

Deu 18:10-12 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord, and because of these detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you.

When I met the Holy Spirit, it felt like a light bulb went on in my head, for the first time.

It really felt like I'd been walking in utter darkness until that second. Now I see two dimensions, the worldly one and the supernatural. I prefer to stay in God's supernatural flow, most of the time, Earth is too boring for me now. My spirit is already in Heaven, but my body has to lug around down here, until God decides that my time is up.

Mar 1:8 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit.

Exorcising spirits, is a part of my daily life as a Christian.

It's nothing to get excited about, it's just a part of life. Some demons whimper and beg, others try to sound truly evil and frightful, they all lie, just like their master. The weakest ones will often say that they are mighty, some even call themselves lucifer, but that's just being silly. I just throw them out in the name of Jesus.

Luk 10:20 "Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

Spirits have to leave because all Christians have authority over them in Jesus name.

Most of them leave pretty quick, I don't get into conversations with them, I just tell them to shut up and leave in Jesus name, and that is what they do. Some of them try to hide, but God sometimes shows the hiding ones to me, so hiding doesn't always work. They kinda just sit there, holding their breath...then I command them by name (God often tells me their names) and then they often seem surprised and bolt it out of the person I'm praying for.

Mat 10:1 And he (Jesus) called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction.

Mat 10:8 "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay.

The spirits are fallen angels, some call them demons.

The devil does not possess people, because he can only be in one place at the time. The chance that you might meet him is very remote. The evil one has myriads of little helpers, spirits, demons or ghosts if you will.

The evil one is not like God at all, who is omnipresent and can therefore be everywhere at once. Don't ask me how He pulls that one off, I guess that's why He is God :-)

I just know that it's true, because He never lies, and He has shown me many miracles and supernatural things.

All ghosts are evil spirits.

I just returned from a paranormal site, it's sad to see how the spirits fool people all the time. One of their main goals is to keep us occupied with nonsense, so that we don't find God. If you think about it, what is so exciting about a spirit nudging a table, or some other piece of furniture? I think it's silly.

Channeling = spirits fooling people.

They can fool those who do not know God, since the spirits know everything about the past. What is so exciting about a person falling into trance telling fairy tales? Sure they sound true, since the spirits know everything about non Christians, but it's just utter nonsense.

The reason why the spirits don't know everything about Christians, is that God has given us a heavenly language that the evil ones don't understand. I speak in tongues a lot when I pray, because that kind of prayer is very powerful in the heavenlies. The spirits hate everybody, but they are manipulating bastards, so they fool some people into thinking that they are nice.

I "had" an old friend (actually I've had many) who has problems with spirits.

He is very manipulative, and hence has many "friends". Once when I wrote some lyrics for him, one song had one reference to the Bible (sword of the Spirit), and immediately a spirit manifested through him and told me to remove that part of the lyrics. After this I have not worked with they guy and I never will.

Eph 6:17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,

I detest evil spirits, they belong in Hell, Hell was made only for them and the devil originally. Others who end up there, are those who haven't received Christ. Nothing unclean can ever enter Heaven, all who don't know and abide in Christ are unfit for Heaven. That is why it's so important to receive Christ.

See the prayer below, if you want to give your life to Christ. Psa 145:18 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

Past life experiences.

Anders Antell

Same thing here, the spirits come up with lies about your past. We only live one time on Earth, there are no "past lives". The spirits can make you think the past lives are real, because they know what makes you tick. They are only keeping you occupied with rubbish, in hopes that you will never find God.

Spiritism in different forms is designed by satan.

The idea behind spiritism, is the same as the above. The evil spirits will do all they can to catch your interest. They are many times very convincing, they have been doing this for thousands of years...

 

Whatever you do, don't let the devil get you, Uncle Ben

If you would like to try Jesus for yourself, say this prayer from your heart, it will change your life!

Heavenly Father, forgive me my sins. Jesus I believe that you are the only son of God, please save me, come into my heart, and take over my life. Amen.

Peace,

Being a Christian is really fulfilling, I love it.

I don't care if the going gets rough at times, that's all a part of life down here on Earth. I spend as much time as possible in the spiritual dimension, but as all others, I have to wade in the ditch with one leg while the other one is in Heaven :-)

1400 Christian families had to flee from their homes in Iraq!

In India Christians are still being killed, and their homes destroyed.

I believe that we will see much more violence against Christians in the world yet. God is doing many miracles in the world, and the devil is scared, because he knows that the clock is ticking, and that means that his time will soon be up. Not many realize that we are in a constant spiritual battle:

Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

We need to pray for our countries daily!

There is tremendous power in prayer, it is stupid not to use it. We can never know when disaster will knock on our doors. The devil has hoards of helpers all over the world, since he himself can only be in one place at the time. As Christians we have power over these demons in Jesus name. I wish more Christians would understand this!

A Christian can be a major pain in the devils hinder parts.

"Prayer can move mountains", does not mean mountains per se, but problems. The devil is our biggest problem, not because he is powerful, but because he is such an evil busybody.

A fun way to harass the evil ones is to sing songs of Praise.

The spirits hate praise music, they really do. That's why spirits often manifest in church, when they do, they should be thrown out immediately.

I don't believe that there are "crazy" people.

I believe that they have problems with spirits. I've seen people being set free from all kinds of sickness and weirdness. I pray with people on a weekly basis, many times 1-5 days per week. When the opressing spirits leave, so do drug addiction, bad temper, depression, foul language etc.

People who were unable to function in society, get their skills back and become economically viable again. I love to see what my heavenly Father does in peoples lives.

 

Whatever you do, don't let the devil get you, Uncle Ben

Peace,

You can be a dirty rat and, still get saved!

That's how it works, Heaven is open to every single soul that receives Christ as his/her Lord.

Did you know that you can be righteous in the eyes of God?

All you need to do is say the prayer below, and mean it. How is this? It's all because of what Jesus did, when He gave His life in Your place.

Getting saved has nothing to do with our abilities.

We can be rotten to the core, and still be saved. If Hitler had asked God's forgiveness, He would have been forgiven! So would Stalin, Martin Luther, Pol Pot, Mugabe, Kim Jong-il, Ferdinand Marcos, Nicolae Ceausescu, Saparmurat Niyazov, Idi Amin, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, Saddam Hussein, Mobutu Sese Soku, Suharto, Sayyid Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini have be/have been.

People often tend to think, that one person is better than the other, but this is not true.

All the evil people of the world, have the same possibility of getting saved, as you and I. Nobody is better than the other. We are all saved only because of the Grace of God. Nobody on planet Earth is WORTHY of getting saved, not one.

The Pope is no more holy than an X jail bird.

He isn't! When are people going to understand that? Not all Popes have been Christians, I don't even know for sure that any one of them has actually been saved. Just becoming a Pope or some kind of priest won't save a anybody, you have to believe in, and follow Jesus to become saved.

 

Whatever you do, don't let the devil get you, Uncle Ben

If you would like to try Jesus for yourself, say this prayer from your heart, it will change your life!

Heavenly Father, forgive me my sins. Jesus I believe that you are the only son of God, please save me, come into my heart, and take over my life. Amen.

Peace,

Sometimes we try to steal God's Glory.

We do it in many ways. Sometimes we are eager to tell people that "we" came up with this and that idea, even though it's from the Holy Spirit. I don't think that many people think about it from that perspective. We are really not that important, even though God wants to use us. He uses us because He loves us, and wants us to feel a part of the BIG PICTURE.

Peace,

There is no such thing as Homosexuals or Transsexuals!

It's all nonsense, it's all about deceiving spirits. The spirits have personalities, and they need victims that they can live out their perversions through.

Just read about a 16 year old upcoming artist Kim Petras who had a sex change at the age of 12!

He felt like a girl when he was 2 years old, and could not identify himself a boy. This only means one thing, that an evil spirit or more, had come into his life when he was an infant. This is pretty common, it normally happens if the child is subject to a traumatic event, like incest, rape or violence. The kid could have been set free, it only takes prayer, if you want to throw out evil spirits.

I'm so sorry for this kid. He has been fooled by a spirit/spirits to believe in a lie. It's never too late though, anybody can be set free. Miracles happen all the time.

When a homosexual spirit leaves, the person who is set free gets his OWN PERSONALITY back!

I've seen it happen again and again. Naturally this applies to any kind of evil spirit.

There's NO however point in setting a person free, if he/she hasn't received Christ. That would only cause the spirits to return with vengeance.

The Spirit of Buddha © Benjamin Antell

Luke 11:24 “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ 25 When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. 26 Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”

In the original text, the word "rest" means such a short break that the demon would not even have time for a cup of coffee.

It is very sad that some children, have to grow up in families that do not know the Lord. Some of them don't stand a chance, because some parents are very dominating and fast in their philosophy whatever it may be.

Those who grow up in Christian families, get to choose, if they want to believe or not. You can't force anyone to become a Christian, if you do it does not count. Becoming a Christian is a personal choice. You can't have a go-between, you need to go directly to Jesus.

God has finally begun His work in Finland :-)

It's been slowly growing since last summer. These are exciting times we are living in. Many are turning to God, and are looking for the meaning of life. I get to pray with people every week, both in a local church, and a little here and there. It's a great blessing, to get to bless others.

Peace,

God has saved my life many times.

When I lived in Australia, I didn't understand to be afraid of snakes, so I caught all but two of the ones I saw. One was just to ridiculously long, didn't know how to carry it, and the other one that I caught with help was hurt and angry. I just ran after them and grabbed them by the neck, after all they always tried to "run away", like the knights in the Quest of the Holy Grail, by Monty Python.

Hit and run © Benjamin Antell

Another time the Lord saved me was in Bilboa, Panama way back in 1967. Dad and I were heading in to some slums, he wanted to take photos where others didn't. There was a shout behind us "Sir, don't go in there, they kill you for sure!", I turned around and there was an officer of the law, in a green uniform. He told us that we would surely be robbed and killed if we went into the slum. Dad decided to go the other way, after thanking the officer 888 times.

I've been held up at knife point in Helsinki, and Los Angeles. I was shot once, and I have almost drowned in Australia. When I was a kid, I loved to dive without gear. One day when I was trying to salvage a sunken boat, I noticed that it was easier to dive down without air in my lungs. I exhaled and dove to about 4 meters, everything went fine, until I started the climb. Boy, was that rough going. Just when I thought I would pass out of lack of air, I still had a meter or more to go. It was surely a close call, now I always inhale before I dive in the bath tub.

Another time I crashed my bike into Kriminaali konstaappeli (detective) Heino Jurva, from Vartioturva, in his green Javlin SS. I had nowhere else to go, he stopped in the middle of the road and WHAM! I was very lucky, if I'd been without a helmet I'd be pushing up thistles today.

These are just a few reasons why I try to wake up as many people as possible spiritually. You never know when your time is up. You could die today! I urge you to try God before it's too late, after all it's dead easy, all it takes is a short prayer, to get the ball rolling. Here's one, if you say this you will be saved, and stuff will begin to happen in your life:

Jesus forgive me my sins (we all sin every day), come into my heart and take over my life. I believe that you are God's son, and that you have risen from the dead. Thank you for saving me, amen.

That's it, if you said the prayer, welcome into the family of God. See if you can find a cool church, and don't take it personally if you have to go through a few to find a cool one. See to it that they are on fire for God, and that they love each other, and follow the Bible. Now you also need to get baptized in the Holy Spirit, so that you can understand the Bible. Some get baptized at the same time that they receive Christ. It's different for everybody, God meets us individually. If you haven't met the Holy Spirit, ask some real born again Christians to pray over you, that you might receive Him. After all, life without the Holy Spirit is worthless. He is the one who guides us through Jesus, he leads us day by day, and teaches us the Bible.

Peace,

Keep pointing...

The evil one keeps coming with his crap day by day, as Christians we only have to do one thing: point to the door.

The devil has no right to mess with us. Why? Because we are made righteous the second we receive Christ. There is nothing we can earn, we are saved by grace and grace alone. As God is, so are we! Check this out:

I John 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

Or New International version:

I John 4:17 In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.

It's funny how we often read these things without the penny dropping.

I once had speaks with a woman, who told me that she had received gifts of the spirit. I asked her why she wasn't using them. Her reply was, that she felt that she had to become a "better" person first, by not smoking etc.

That is a very humane way of thinking, but she's got it all wrong. There is nothing we can do to become more holy or better, we are made righteous the second we receive Christ into our lives. We are like Him, the second we receive His Grace! In other words, we can do everything Jesus did, the second after we have received Him and the Holy Spirit.

How do we receive the Holy Spirit?

Any born again Christian can pray over you, for you to receive the Holy Spirit. We all experience Him differently. Some receive Him in remarkable ways, others receive Him without barely noticing anything. After this, He will urge us to pray for others etc. Some of us have to concentrate to hear Him, others just live in the flow :-)

The more we give of ourselves, the quicker we will get to know the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit we can do all the things that Jesus did and more. So what? if some people don't get healed, move to the next one, just keep going.

John 14_12-13 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.

Peace,

I never liked saunas.

When I was a kid back in Australia, I had a weird encounter with one.

My mother told me to go fire up the sauna, since I never managed to get the thing to burn, I said I didn't want to. I never won a discussion with my parents, so off I went.

About a half hour later, while I was still trying to get the logs to burn, I saw my mother marching though the bush towards me. She looked stern, I was actually afraid of her as a kid. Anyway, in sheer desperation I ran off and got a bucket of thinner from the shed. I emptied the bucket into the sauna oven, squatted down and lit a match..."BOOOOM!", went the oven, rocks flew, and I bounced backwards into the air black and beautiful.

Since I wasn't wearing a shirt, I burned myself from the waist up. The eyebrows, the hair, my face...everything got scorched, and I lay in a bed for a while shivering with a fever. I didn't care about the burn, I was just happy that people felt sorry for me instead of being furious with me, which was normally the case :-)

one of my sons...

I've always respected my parents, I still do. I'm not trying to put them down in any way. I know from experience that it's hard bringing up kids, I have 4 of them myself.

When I grew up, I never felt loved.

It's like a curse that never goes away. Since I never felt loved, it made me pretty hard. I know that my dad had the same problem, so it's like a generational curse. My dad never talked to me as a kid, I don't remember anybody talking to me. The last time I tried to catch their attention was back in 1958 when my first sister was born (I was 4). After that I was "old hat". I guess this is pretty common. I'm going to ask the Lord to break the curse now, I've seen it happen to others many times. I just break it in Jesus name.

If you feel like you have a similar problem, go to a church where they follow Christ and the Bible. Have them pray for you and break the curse, it does work.

Anyway, when I met God in 1975, I felt loved for the first time in my life!

That's why I recommend everybody to try God, He really does care. All the evil in the world is man-made. It is that way because God gave us a free will, and most people are evil, egoistic and only think of themselves. Think about it, who have you helped today?

God is to this day, the only true love I have ever known on planet Earth.

Peace,

Britney Spears has had a hard life.

She evidently has a deep void in her life, this is due to the fact that we all need God. Unfortunately she has had no "born again" Christians around her worth a dime. A person who suffers like Britney, is in desperate need of spiritual guidance. I have heard Britney say that she believes in God. If she does, then Jesus is just a prayer away!

If she were to confess her sin (we all sin every day), and receive Jesus into her heart (Just ask Him to move in and take over your life), then she would be ready for the next supernatural step, the Holy Spirit.

After Jesus has moved in, most of us feel a deep sense of relief (I did).

The next step is to get baptized in water as a sign to those around us, that we want to start all over, being born again. Some people "can" get baptized in the Holy Spirit without being baptized in water, but it is not very common (my experience).

When we get to know the Holy Spirit, we have crossed the "point of no return", because then we know without a shadow of a doubt that God is real and that He loves us just the way we are...

I call it the Vanishing Point, because the old me disappeared and my whole life changed completely, I was no longer the same man...nor do I ever wish to return to the miserable joke of a man that I was.

Very few who meet the Holy Spirit, want to turn back to the old crappy life without Christ.

I was never into drugs, because I saw what drugs were doing to my friends. But I did smoke, drink and curse like an idiot. All that is history now, thank God.

I'm not saying that I'm a perfect man (nobody is), far from it. I still grow day by day, by the grace of God. I get to pray with people in churches on a weekly basis. I just got a call from a person who needs the Lord, so I'm off to share the Lord again today. The Lord has taught me a lot though the Holy Spirit.

I can't hold grudges, be bitter or hate others, if God is going to work through me. I have to sanctify my life, as well as I can. I do what I can, and the Lord takes care of the rest. There is no pressure on me from the Lord, and I love to do His will.

If you have never tried Jesus, do it, you'll never regret it.

Peace,

Christians are being massacred in Orissa, India right now!

This is not covered in the media with a black out from the State authorities.

At least 1,100 Churches have been burned,

More than 300 homes have been burned.

18.000 families have been attacked.

78.000 Christians displaced

13.000 in refugee camps

36,000 injured.

These numbers are steadily growing...

Christian Schools, motels and shops have also been attacked. People have been murdered by Hindu mobs and many even burned alive for preaching the Good News about Jesus Christ. A great number of Christians have fled out into the jungle, where they have a hard time to survive, due to the monsun rains and Malaria.

Some groups (atheists etc) who actually applaud Christians being killed, don't even understand that they potentially are next...

I don't think God will take this lightly.

In India they worship 33 million demi gods (spirits) out of fear, which Hinduism is based on. People are afraid of the demons they worship.

Most missionaries are on the level.

Naturally there will be fortune seekers among them too, evil people are everywhere in the world. It is however pretty easy to spot the phonies. Most phonies target rich countries like the USA.

Then there are "religious" missionaries, who do not even know the Holy Spirit...

They mean well, but they have no spiritual lives, and cannot therefore function as the Lord has intended. They should receive the Holy Spirit or do something else, since they are only in the way!

Now the demons are in panic because of the great awakening among the peoples of the Earth.

God is doing great miracles all over the world especially through god.tv, Over 30 have been raised from the dead in Lakeland, and thousands have been healed all over the place! They are even documented.

The devil, and his helpers are devastated.

The devil knows that his time is up as soon as the book of life is filled. After this Jesus will come back to Earth for the third time, to gather his body (the Church, all denominations who are Christ centered and live according to God's Word). Then all who haven't received Him as their Lord and Savior, will unfortunately end up with the devil and his underdogs in the Lake of Fire. The ones who are in Hell will also be thrown into the Lake of Fire, to die a second death.

It's only natural that India has lots of poverty and misery.

Any country who worships demi gods will have problems. If they on top of it all persecute the body of Christ, look out. A country like that can not be blessed by God.

I urge all responsible Christians all over the world, to pray for India, and all other countries in the word where there is persecution. After all we can be next.

•••

Another group of people who will face the wrath of God, are those who cut out verses and passages from the Bible like:

Acts 8:37, Matthew 17:21, 18:11, 23:14, Mark 7:16, 9:44, 9:46, 11:26, 15:28, Luke 17:36, 23:17, John 5:4, Acts 8:37, 15:34, 24:7, 28:29, Romans 16:24...

According to the Book of Revelation, they will suffer all the plagues mentioned in it. This naturally includes those who make bad translations of the Bible, on purpose.

God is a loving God.

The Lake of Fire was not made for mankind, it was just a dump created for the devil and his helpers. Since so many of us humans are evil and refuse to receive God's gift, He has no other option but to throw most of us in the same dump as the devil. Since no unclean beings will enter Heaven.

There is forgiveness, for ALL who want to receive Christ in their lives! Check out the prayer below.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------I'm not trying to put anyone down with my Write, I'm just trying to convey what God has put on my heart. I also feel that that life is too short, to just shut up and go with the flow, when people suffer under all kinds of bondage, when they could in fact be set free in Christ.
