Do Not Put God to the Test

The devil is a pathological liar, a divider, and a violator. For some reason, he hates us and will spend a great deal of time grooming us for destruction. He operates as a molester, and tries to amaze us with signs and wonders in order to manipulate us physically and mentally. Absolutely nothing is off limits for him; he will use your love of God and Jesus, he will use Scripture, he will use anything that he can to get to you.

 

One of the things I felt upon realizing how badly I had been tricked, was anger. Another was confusion; why does he try so hard to cause us pain? I don’t know and I never will. I simply know that he is a psychopath who stalks us and hunts us. He wants us to hurt each other; he wants us to destroy the environment and hurt the animals. He wants us to do drugs and drink to excess; it’s very easy to manipulate and trick someone who is under the influence.

What were my mistakes that led me to this point? I was too focused on religion as a quest, a pilgrimage, a constant striving to be closer to God. I was too open to things that I thought could bring me closer to Him, instead of focusing simply on my faith in Him. I never would have messed around with a Ouija board, but I didn’t realize that a lot of the things that I was open to were just Ouija boards in another form.

 

We are not asked to seek after signs and messages from God. In fact, we are told “not to put God to the test” (Luke 4:12). I should not have asked to hear God’s voice, and I should not have asked for signs and messages. When you do that, you open yourself up to a spiritual attack from Satan. I pray you never find yourself in a situation like this, but if you do, remember to call on Jesus for help. He is our Lord and Savior. It’s important to say, “Jesus, please help me!” as I believe that he needs our invitation to begin.

 

If you are someone who can hear the voices of those in spirit, it's also a good idea to go to a psychiatrist. They won't believe that you are hearing real voices, but the medicine they can prescribe will help. It won't erase the presence of bad spirits, but at least it will be a little easier to ignore them. One of the devil’s tactics is to keep you up at night and to deprive you of sleep. The doctor can give you medicine that will reduce some of the noise in your head, and help you sleep at night.
