If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that I discussed Islam. And, how it's god is the devil. Satan.
Some people don't believe Satan exists. But, I know the truth. He does.
How do I know this?
After reading God's Word, the Bible many times, I know for certain he's here on earth. In fact, he is basically god of this world... of those who are not yet born-again Christians.
Also, in the past, he has affected part of my life. And, I've met people who worshipped him.
Someone shared an article that was upsetting to me. It was about how a high school football coach, was put on paid leave, after being removed from doing his job.
Why? Because he prayed with the football team high school students.
Check it out, by reading this link by nydailynews.com entitled, Washington high school football coach placed on leave for praying at games: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/wash-high-school-football-coach-leave-praying-article-1.2416715.
Here is another link to the article I just mentioned. To me, this one gives even more information. It's by Sfgate.com and is entitled, The Latest: Praying coach, Satanists attend game: http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/The-Latest-Satanists-still-plan-to-attend-high-6598684.php.Sat.
To me, it was upsetting that Satanists were able to do this.
I must admit that I had a problem with someone on Facebook (FB).
Please know that I am not putting down FB. I truly enjoy FB. And, I am grateful to be able to use it to honour God!
Just so you know, I was a member of a group of women, who met from time to time.
This group has pages of various sorts on FB. This is mainly how the group passes along information. And, is how contact can be easily made with other members.
It was shocking to me what happened.
After being a member of the group for about a year, I was removed from the majority of the group's pages. And, even blocked from one.
There was a person, who didn't like me ending my FB comments, as I usually do. Normally, at the end of each comment, I try to bless people.
Instead of saying, God bless you... I usually say, Blessings...
Okay, I type it. But, you know what I mean, I'm sure. After all, Blessings, is easier and quicker to type than the full statement of God bless you.
I got messaged from the person, who was upset seeing me 'blessing' people.
I was told to stop typing the word... blessings at the end of my comments.
She also criticized me, and put me down for doing it.
I responded. And, let her know that I do not do that to hurt anyone; I do it to bless people... to help them.
She replied that I was NOT to do it, ever again.
We had quite a discussion.
I let this woman know that as a Christian, it is the best thing I can do for people.
I asked her, if we had a Muslim woman in our group, would she tell her to not wear a hijab, or do anything that wasn't acceptable to her. No response about that.
But, I was put down for blessing others... because, I am Christian.
In fact, not only was I put down, but as I said earlier, I was removed and blocked from most of our group pages. There is only a page I can access for our group, where people can ask for help or offer help for items.
Just so you know, I had also been not allowed to attend some of our group meetings, that happen from time to time, like I used to do.
At first, I thought the problem was that this and another person were not Christian.
However, even though I wasn't aware of it at the time, I found out later, that Satan is involved.
How did I find this out?
Wait 'til you hear what I have to say! LOL :) and :'( You'll probably be shocked.
Being that I am a member of this group, I received a special e-mail and was invited by someone else to attend a group meeting for all who are doing truly well.
At the meeting, a woman sat next to me, who I had met a year before, and I seen at various places. She is partially disabled. And, so am I. So, we related well to each other.
As conversations were taking place, I looked over at the woman I had trouble with on FB. I almost had heart-failure.
She was wearing a ring.
When I looked at it, I was shocked. It had a star on it, surrounded with a circle.
A pentagram... the Satanic symbol.
In case you don't know what I am referring to, I will share with you a pic of what I am talking about.
There are other pics I could share, but don't really want to. The other pics, use this for a basis, and add other images on with it.
While this woman's ring was a little more complicated, I admit that I realized that this woman was wearing a Satanic ring.
Then, I looked at her necklace. And, it was similar!
I actually leaned over and whispered to the partially-disabled woman who was seated next to me, and who we had shared conversations. I let her know, because she is also a born-again Christian.
Hopefully, she saw and understood. I truly am not aware, because we didn't discuss it, further. But still, I hope she understood.
Why? Because I knew that I had been hurt by that woman, who was Satanic.
After all, Satan destroys things in our lives, at times.
Thinking of this, made me think of John 10:10, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
Yes, the thief (Satan) cometh not, but for to steal, kill and destroy.
Much like he did to me, in his evilness of robbing me from being able to access group pages on FB, plus attend the majority of group meetings. And, about how he literally destroyed our relationship, between me and a couple of group members.
But as Jesus said, "I am come that they might have life, and they might have it more abundantly".
How grateful I am that Jesus did this! For me, and hopefully for you, also.
My friend, if you haven't yet come to Christ, please do so, today. Tomorrow, may be too late.
Besides, Jesus loves you.
And, He will provide for you, always.
Until next time...
