Looking For A Miracle

For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive {and} lead astray, if possible, even the elect (God's chosen ones). {Matthew 24:24 AMP}

Some will undoubtedly find it this rather ironic—especially after posting “A Demonic Diatribe” a few days ago. For here I am looking for a miracle in regards unto the deliverance of those who have become enslaved unto deliverance ministries; and they are the very ones who openly profess to be on the frontlines in the war against the devil and his demons.

Oh yes, irony abounds; but it is not meant in jest. For there is a war (of sorts) going-on between good and evil{1}; and it is over our hearts and minds{2}.

No, there is no need to repeat everything that I was given to say in “Spiritual Warfare” and “Judas Iscariot”; but there are some things that keep getting missed. For Satan and his horde of rogue angels are still just as much under the full and complete control of our Heavenly Father as they have always been{3}; and this will stay as such forever and ever{4}. AMEN!!!

Therein lies the key unto knowing who has and who has not been deceived. For all who believe that the devil and his demons are out there reeking havoc far and wide in this world as they please have been deceived{5}.

Yes, there is a multitude of Bible verses and personal experiences that can be called upon in support of both sides of the issue. For our Heavenly Father’s Holy Scriptures can be employed to support almost anything if taken out of context enough; and I have been made all too painfully aware of the absolute truth of the matter truly being that far too many want to believe that this is exactly what I am seeking to do in order to accomplish my own purposes.

Hence: looking for a miracle. For it is quite natural of us to want to believe that we are much more important than we really are; and this is something that the devil and his demons are allowed to exploit at times.

No, this is not to deny that we are important. In fact: even the least from amongst us is more important unto our Heavenly Father than any of us can even start to naturally comprehend{6}; but in regards unto Him needing soldiers in His war against the forces of darkness: be assured that this comes straight from the devil’s mouth unto the itching ears of those who want to believe it{7}.

Yes, there are other tactics in use. For spiritual pride is another thing that the devil and his demons are allowed to exploit; and there are far too many who want to believe that it is because of their own faithfulness that are of such good use unto our Heavenly Father{8}.

Alas, oh I how wish I had either a carrot or a stick to offer{9}.For a carrot carries with it the promise of personal satisfaction if things change for the better. Whereas: a stick carries with it the threat of personal harm if things remain as they are.

Woe be it unto me. For this is about wanting to truly be as righteous in the eyes of our Heavenly Father as He will allow and enable us to be; and if this is not enough of an incentive: woe be it indeed{10}.
