Impartations and Feelings

September 5, 2019 at 11:46 AM 4 comments

I was recently reading through a series of articles about NAR and the “gift” of Impartation. (You can read the entire series starting here then go to the end of that article to see the connecting articles.) The whole article breaks my heart. I really feel badly for the mom and her family, especially her son Chaz and what they went through. It happened because there was no discernment and when they began using discernment to question what was going on, they were ostracized by the leaders of that particular new NAR-based church. This is the norm within these churches – ostracizing anyone who questions the leaders. It’s much like what the Left tries to do politically.

Unfortunately for that particular family in the articles, their protestations and questions did not end the problem. The article(s) is written by the mom who catalogs her son Chaz’ descent into what seems like hell itself, as he began being tormented by actual demons who robbed him of his health and nearly killed him.

One of the things the mom says is that she believes in “prophesies.” I’m going to assume she means that she believes in “words of knowledge” by people who might offer their words to others. As one who would have agreed with her years ago, I can’t anymore. I believe these “prophesies” or “words” are normally from the enemy. I’m well aware of the fact that people will disagree with me over this, but the problem is that when someone gives some “word” authoritatively, what they are actually saying is that “This is from God.” If it is from God, then clearly, it is equal with His written Word. How could it not be? If the listener rejects that word, then it is implied they are rejecting God’s authority over their lives. The whole concept is absolutely ridiculous to consider, yet it is understood as a norm within the NAR movement.

Because people accept these “words” as being equal in authority to God’s written Word, they often don’t even bother to check the veracity of the statement they’re hearing. “It’s from God,” therefore, there’s no reason to consider it could be wrong (from the enemy or simply SELF).

But my biggest problem with “words” or “prophesies” from people claiming to be speaking the very words of God in His authority is that it is not as though we will ever know God’s actual written Word well enough in this life, will we? We cannot ever get to the point in this life where we will thoroughly know everything there is to know about God’s written Word that would allow us to start listening to people who claim to be speaking God’s actual words? Please consider this, will you? God gave us His written Word for a very good reason.

In other words, why would we need to have “words of knowledge” if we are also not at the point of knowing God’s written Word well enough? Has every aspect of His written Word been internalized within us? If I memorized 10 Bible verses every day for the rest of my life, even if I lived longed enough to memorize the entire Bible, that still does not mean that I fully understood every aspect of God’s Word does it? Short answer: No.

People argue that Paul says we should not despise prophecies (1 Thessalonians 5:20). But what does that mean? On one hand it means to not despise “words” said to be from God. Why would Paul have said this then? I believe he clearly said this because ultimately, the entirety of God’s Word had not been composed and compiled yet. God was still writing His Word through chosen vessels during Paul’s lifetime. That is not the case today, now. It was common for God to continue to use true prophets during Paul’s day and even shortly thereafter. But of course, Paul warned continually about the false prophets that existed during his day as well. The Christians living then had the Old Testament Scriptures and a few letters to read, memorize and learn from then. Today, we have the entire Bible. There is no need for prophets today and certainly no need for anymore “apostles.”

Other commentators believe Paul is simply talking about the actual preaching of God’s Word. It’s possible that Paul is referring to both things. But in 2019, we have had the entirety of God’s Word (the full canon) for centuries and because of it, we do not need anything else. The Spirit will guide us through the use of His Word but too many today want the “experience” of hearing God “talk” to us directly.

Folks, feel free to disagree but this is a great way to open one’s self up to the demonic. If God does not want to speak to us (except through His written Word and through circumstances that guide our lives), but that is something we the people want more than anything, isn’t it safe to say that a demon or demons would be very happy to pretend to be God for the sole purpose of deceiving us? It’s not only possible, but highly probable! We need to move quickly away from those things which emphasize “man” and not God.

I was reading through some posts on a social network and this one woman was asking for prayer because she was so depressed. She had turned inward and didn’t want to go out. She was canceling appointments. Her depression was overtaking her. Many offered to pray for her and a few went so far as to “speak against” the powers and principalities whom they believed were causing the depression. That could be the case, but from my personal experience, the reasons for depression could also be solely or primarily based on what people eat.

Today’s processed foods are filled with chemicals, preservatives and excitotoxins. These are all designed to make food smell and taste really good, but often do not have the needed vitamins and minerals that are found naturally in many foods. Our meats are heavily laden with antibiotics and growth hormones. I firmly believe these things cause havoc in our systems and the best thing we can do is try to avoid most of them.

Is it possible that this woman is suffering from depression because of it? She said all she wants to do is eat and she has gained weight. This is a normal response to feeling like garbage. Whether she’ll consider my words or not in my direct response to her, I pointed out that if may well be due to a physiological problem, not a spiritual one. Too many Christians want to see demons behind everything and certainly they’re actively doing what they can to thwart God and His purposes. However, we’ve all heard the term “garbage in/garbage out,” correct? Usually it applies to what we think. If we are spending our time watching bereft movies, looking at porn, then clearly our brains and outlook will be affected by that. Apart from the fact that it is wrong to indulge in those things, it’s clearly not healthy either for our spiritual relationship with God. Is there anyone who would disagree with me here? I hope not.

I believe the same applies to what we eat. I see people everyday who look like they can’t even walk. They shuffle along, bent over, gasping for air and it’s because they suffer from a number of maladies. But why? Does it have anything to do with the choices they make in eating? I am firm in my conviction that it does. I know for a fact that this has been the case with me and roughly six years ago or so, the Lord, in response to my prayer for “healing” said “yes,” but not in the way I was expecting. He took me by the hand and led me down the path that restored my health and it took a while.

Too often Christians don’t see the obvious because they are too busy trying to see beyond the curtain that separates us physically from the spiritual realm. Sometimes, the answers are far more obvious but because of the way the pharmaceutical and food companies have brainwashed society, we rarely consider the fact that many of our health issues (including depression), might be connected to what we eat! When I began to wake up to that fact, it changed my life.

Am I perfectly healthy today? Not yet. I’m still slightly heavier than I would like to be. I have to be very careful about which supplements I add to my daily regime because they can cause issues and reactions are normally different for everyone.

There was a time in my life when I was on many medications. The doctors were all trying to treat symptoms and for the most part, the medications did what they were supposed to do. However, once I learned what I learned about processed foods (and the particular allergies I have where some foods are concerned), and how I began to eliminate these foods, my dependency on most of the medications I was taking waned. I still take one blood pressure medication (at 2.5mg/day). Every once in a while, when my Epstein-Barr virus rears its head, I have to start taking my anti-viral again. But that’s essentially it. I have more stamina today; more energy.

Recently, my wife and I were in California for her 40th reunion. While there, we went to some of her old stomping grounds like Huntington Lake and Shaver Lake in the Sierra Nevadas. From there, we walked trails that I hadn’t walked in years at 7,000 plus feet. I was amazed that I was hardly breathing hard at all. I certainly was not out of breath! I didn’t get tired. I enjoyed the hikes. Only a few years ago, I would not have been able to do that without a great deal of effort and resultant exhaustion.

If you are suffering from things like feeling the blues or depression, it may have something to do with what you’re eating. At least consider it, will you? I’m not saying to avoid doctors. I’m saying that there are things you may be able to avoid that are playing havoc with your physiology.

Not every problem is a spiritual one although many of them can result in spiritual problems. A person becomes depressed and doesn’t want to read God’s Word or go to church. They start pulling away. It needs to be looked at and the first step may be in taking a serious look at your diet.

If you want to get to know God better, read His Word and even seek to memorize parts of it. Then prove it to Him by being obedient in the things He tells us to do in His Word. Don’t go looking for ecstatic, ethereal experiences. As we obey God from the heart, He will reveal a greater depth of His character. In fact, I believe He will get our minds off of ourselves so that we can serve Him better. Speaking from my own experience, the main reason I sought after ecstatic experiences was due to my own selfishness.

It’s the same thing when we eat foods that end up creating bad health for us. We don’t give them up because we either are not aware of the problem they cause or because we don’t want to give those foods up.

What is your health – both physiologically and spiritually – worth to you?

Wrestling Against Spiritual Powers 18 Years Ago Today, America was Attacked

    Hi, I had nutritional issues too. I believe God has directed me to look at my diet – mainly my sugar intake – I have stopped all processed foods, and I eat OMAD, and on the Keto plan, taking a few high quality vitamins and getting vitamin D through being in the sun for a small period of time a day.

    I hear intermittent fasting is very helpful, but my husband and I had been eating OMAD for sometime, but we would eat bad carbs when we did eat, hence it was of no benefit.

    Been very careful how I do this and have lost 10lbs already, feeling so much better and the inflammation from within has gone.

    Sugar is evil! Lol…Don’t miss it and am very careful what I buy.

      Good for you! That’s great. I truly believe we have an obligation to eat as healthily as possible because the Holy Spirit resides in the temple of our bodies. I’ve not heard of OMAD but if it works for you that’s great. I like KETO and for me I adapted to it quickly to my surprise. My wife and I had done our own thing at first, then adopted the Whole30, then moved over to KETO. We don’t avoid fruit though, but we keep it to a minimum. Keep going. You’re doing well. Over the past 6 years I’ve lost nearly 100 pounds; from 255 to 162.

        Sorry, OMAD means one meal a day.
        Glad to hear you and your wife are doing well on Keto.

        Congrats on your weight loss. May God continue to bless us, give us wisdom and perseverance in our pursuit of taking care of our bodies.

        Have a blessed eveningm
