God told Abram: “Leave your country, your family, and your father’s home for a land that I will show you. I’ll make you a great nation and bless you. I’ll make you famous; you’ll be a blessing. I’ll bless those who bless you; those who curse you I’ll curse. All the families of the Earth will be blessed through you.”
Genesis 12:1-3 MSG
I grew up in a Christian household that lived a life contrary to what God believed. There were days we went to church but our lives where in direct contradiction to what The Bible says.
With that being said, God delivered me from my family but because I was so use to abuse I allowed someone to tell me that I needed to go back to my family (which was not what God told me to do) and live with them… That was a mistake. Yet I am grateful that God gave me another chance and delivered me like Abram ! With that being said, I dont really have time to vent to you about everything I went through but I am going to tell my story and how GOD dealt with me to leave my family…. and for this reason.
When I Was Growing Up
I often read The Bible secretly as a child and God would always send His prophets to prophesy and speak over my life His promises of what He was going to do… (although I was being severely abused as a child). Some examples of abuse is that my mother would lock the bathroom doors so I couldn’t use the bathroom, I wasnt allowed to throw my trash away with the rest of the family, and my clothes would be taken away from me. I was made to sleep on the floor often throughout highschool and my mother was very aware of what she was doing.. Not only that there was something else going on that God pointed out years later which I believe was the source of abuse.
When I was growing up I did not know it was a sin to see psyhics and have palm readings. I didn’t not know astrology was a sin and numerology. Because my entire family believed it …. and they are ministers and pastors.
So this is what I grew up with… and this revelation came after I had a dream that I was preaching in front of my family saying it was not them but God who brought me out of the wilderness and a powerful demon manifested inside of a family member… I mean that person didnt even look the same.
Rebellion Opens Counterfeit Doors
“Do not permit any of your children to be offered as a sacrifice to Molech, for you must not bring shame on the name of your God. I am the Lord . “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin. “A man must not defile himself by having sex with an animal. And a woman must not offer herself to a male animal to have intercourse with it. This is a perverse act. “Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, for the people I am driving out before you have defiled themselves in all these ways. Because the entire land has become defiled, I am punishing the people who live there. I will cause the land to vomit them out. You must obey all my decrees and regulations. You must not commit any of these detestable sins. This applies both to native-born Israelites and to the foreigners living among you. “All these detestable activities are practiced by the people of the land where I am taking you, and this is how the land has become defiled. So do not defile the land and give it a reason to vomit you out, as it will vomit out the people who live there now. Whoever commits any of these detestable sins will be cut off from the community of Israel.
Leviticus 18:21-29 NLT
Because of what my family did they welcomed a spirit of Molech (which involves heavy child abuse). They opened so many doors to rebellion and witchcraft and toxic spirits… But I am so HAPPY God called me out of it !
After God Has Delivered Me
I don’t believe in that stupid stuff about astrology … I dont believe in satanic signs and witchcraft . For my family it goes so deep that someone confessed that they messed with a satanic board at one point… They literally asked a demon a question and it answered. They told the story and said after that they never did it again, but I don’t believe that because years later they spoke of palm readings.
It took years for me to process all of the abuse I endured and God began to show me the root of it and it’s satanic. Because they refuse to repent , God is going to deal with them (Psalm 7:12).
But as for me and my house we will serve the Lord ! Just because my family involved themselves in witchcraft that does not mean I am going to. I love Jesus, I trust Jesus and I will never trust in those things again. When I was in my teens I had no idea this was not the will of God until I got away from my family.
“Do not eat meat that has not been drained of its blood. “Do not practice fortune-telling or witchcraft.
Leviticus 19:26 NLT
“When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there. For example, never sacrifice your son or daughter as a burnt offering. And do not let your people practice fortune-telling, or use sorcery, or interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft, or cast spells, or function as mediums or psychics, or call forth the spirits of the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord . It is because the other nations have done these detestable things that the Lord your God will drive them out ahead of you. But you must be blameless before the Lord your God. The nations you are about to displace consult sorcerers and fortune-tellers, but the Lord your God forbids you to do such things.”
Deuteronomy 18:9-14 NLT
“But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Then one of the seven angels who held the seven bowls containing the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come with me! I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” So he took me in the Spirit to a great, high mountain, and he showed me the holy city, Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God and sparkled like a precious stone—like jasper as clear as crystal. The city wall was broad and high, with twelve gates guarded by twelve angels. And the names of the twelve tribes of Israel were written on the gates. There were three gates on each side—east, north, south, and west. The wall of the city had twelve foundation stones, and on them were written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
Revelation 21:8-14 NLT
It is by GOD’S GRACE that I have been saved and I love Him. If you come from this , I charge you to repent. I believe that the church is in a era of Saul, but this is what The Bible Says
So Saul disguised himself by wearing ordinary clothing instead of his royal robes. Then he went to the woman’s home at night, accompanied by two of his men. “I have to talk to a man who has died,” he said. “Will you call up his spirit for me?” “Are you trying to get me killed?” the woman demanded. “You know that Saul has outlawed all the mediums and all who consult the spirits of the dead. Why are you setting a trap for me?” But Saul took an oath in the name of the Lord and promised, “As surely as the Lord lives, nothing bad will happen to you for doing this.” But Samuel replied, “Why ask me, since the Lord has left you and has become your enemy? The Lord has done just as he said he would. He has torn the kingdom from you and given it to your rival, David. The Lord has done this to you today because you refused to carry out his fierce anger against the Amalekites.
1 Samuel 28:8-10, 16-18 NLT
And This Is How It Ended
Saul groaned to his armor bearer, “Take your sword and kill me before these pagan Philistines come to run me through and taunt and torture me.” But his armor bearer was afraid and would not do it. So Saul took his own sword and fell on it. When his armor bearer realized that Saul was dead, he fell on his own sword and died beside the king. So Saul, his three sons, his armor bearer, and his troops all died together that same day. When the Israelites on the other side of the Jezreel Valley and beyond the Jordan saw that the Israelite army had fled and that Saul and his sons were dead, they abandoned their towns and fled. So the Philistines moved in and occupied their towns. The next day, when the Philistines went out to strip the dead, they found the bodies of Saul and his three sons on Mount Gilboa. So they cut off Saul’s head and stripped off his armor. Then they proclaimed the good news of Saul’s death in their pagan temple and to the people throughout the land of Philistia. They placed his armor in the temple of the Ashtoreths, and they fastened his body to the wall of the city of Beth-shan.
1 Samuel 31:4-10 NLT
