In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wrote about my granny's involvement with the occult. As I have written about in the past, I grew up thinking such things were okay.
Once I recommitted my life to Christ and thoroughly read God's Word, the Bible, I knew that my teaching with regards to the occult, was wrong. It is wrong. It's evil. It's satanic. God hates it.
While some seers and readers are what some would call on the level, meaning they can truly see and/or know personal things and in some cases the future for people, this ability is not of God. It belongs to Satan.
At first, while considering this whole situation, a thought ran through my mind that this experience may have been done by Satan, in an effort to mislead me. After all, I had just declared to God that I did not feel competent enough physically to handle owning and maintaining a Roadtrek motorhome-type van, telling Him that I had cancelled the idea of purchasing one, literally moments before this strange phenomenon occurred.
While still thinking Satan was trying to lead me astray, I recalled my granny telling me that we are surrounded by spirits, always. I recalled telling her that I became afraid at times, when I thought there were some around me; her reply to me was that I have control over them. She continued on to tell me that if I am afraid or nervous, all I had to do was tell the spirit(s) to leave and they would, because they have to do what I tell them.
Oooo dear. What thoughts, especially for a Christian.
I quickly repented, because another incident came to my mind. One involving Gordon's mom. When she was hospitalized on one occasion with a near death experience, I recalled her asking Gordon and I who all the people were who were in her hospital room. He and I had looked at each other, with questioning glances.
We told Gordon's mom that there was no one in the room with her, but the two (2) of us. She then replied asking why we couldn't see all the people in the room, since it was filled to capacity. Then, she commented how she was beginning to recognize some of the people. They were all dead.
Oooo dear, once again. When this incident happened, I realized that not all strange phenomenon's such as this happen, they are not all of the occult. Some can be of God.
After all, God's word tells us that we should treat people well, because we may encounter angels. Hebrews 13:2 tells us, "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." Angels can come in any form, visual or not.
Then, my mind wandered, again. Thoughts ran through my mind of Gordon being in the room or God making the pics and the book fly off the shelf, in an effort to give me a message.
In any case, until I go to heaven, I will never know what or who caused this incident to happen. I can only say that nothing like this has never happened to me before.
However, I must say that I do feel God was sending me a message. A message that I needed to stop thinking I wasn't competent in maintaining an RV-type van. A message that this is indeed what I need to do.
Hence, I began again looking at Roadtrek's available for sale. This way, as I work doing God's work throughout southern USA this winter, I will be able to not have to pack and unpack regularly. I will be able to sleep in my own bed. Be comfy in my own personal environment. Be able to carry my books with me. And, I won't have to be travelling to and from airports with heavy luggage.
In the end, I thanked God for the message I believe I received; it almost felt like a miracle, even if it wasn't. Now, if it is His will, He will provide just the right unit for me.
Until next time...
