Conversation Number 2

Conversations are updated as He leads.

The following conversation between a believer and God is not meant to represent a specific theology or theological truth. It represents one believer's struggle and the response that believer represents as God's truth for that believer and that believer alone.

Hello Lord. I love you.
Thank you, my son. The feeling is mutual. You have questions today and I have answers.

Will you answer any question I ask?
Yes, but sometimes I must give no comment answers. I will not always give you an answer to a question that is not a part of your life or a part of your ministry destination. Prayer answers work the same way. People pray for answers and sometimes I must give them a no comment answer because it is not my will that they should have an answer at the time the question is asked. For example, I know you want an answer about what is going on with the chemtrail spraying, about prophecy of events into the next few months, N.W.O., and those kinds of matters. I will not give you information about these things because you need to focus your energies in other areas.

Lord, will you protect my family and I if a nuclear war or bio-chem war breaks out?
Yes, I will protect you as long as you do your part. You must not purposely endanger yourself or others. You must not put me to the test by standing in a dangerous place or by standing in a dangerous position just daring the danger to hurt you. If you are called upon to be in a place where you or others could be unnecessarily hurt, then I want you out of there if at all possible. Facing a dangerous or life-threatening situation must never be done to show off my power or to test me to see if I will rescue someone.

Lord, what is it like to die?
It is like exhaling air from your lungs but only in a spiritual sense. It is a release of spiritual energy from your body frame, your muscles, and all of your bodily cellular structures. Notice I said it is a release. You might think of it as an escape or as a freeing up. It is like getting out of a prison or getting out of school. Remember the freedom you felt after you had been in school all year and you got out on the last day of school for summer vacation? That is what it is like only millions of times more wonderful. You not only are released from your physical body but you also can inherent the physical kingdom of God in a spiritual dimension.

When we are in pain, as I am today, how can we not look forward to dying?
I know you are hurting. Remember you chose this path. You chose to walk this painful path. Even if you do not remember it, you must at least take my word for it that you chose it. You can look forward to being in heaven but you must look around you at the same time. People need you. People need to hear what you say, think, and feel. You are reaching thousands of people in sometimes indirect ways. The truth you tell is beyond theology. Truth sets people free so they can chose my path or reject my path. It is the truth of the Cross that sets people free. You may have in front of you what you consider to be a mission impossible, but with me, all things are possible.

Lord, I am troubled about the conflicting theologies in the world. In the world, there is such narrow-mindedness among believers of every stripe, denomination, movement, and religious faith. Is there a one true religion?
I created you in my image. I created all people in my image. Part of me resides within each person and that part of me which resides in each person connects to the rest of me and my Kingdom here on earth. Each of you, each of my children is different. Every child comes to me at a different time and place. Every child comes to me in different ways, in different ways of thinking and feeling, in different environments, in different cultures, in different ages. I don’t see religions. I see individual human beings. As much as one religious faith wants to believe they are the only true faith they are right part of the time and wrong part of the time. What believers do not want to believe is that people can find me in different ways. Christ said "only by me" and He meant it. It is only through Him that you or anyone else may find eternal life. I want to break off this part of our talk because this matter gets very complex and very difficult. The reason for the complexity and difficulty is that no person can see a human life the way I can see it. No human being can judge another person’s life the way I can. What grieves me is that believers of any faith want the power to make the judgements as to who is entitled to eternal life and who is not. That is the main issue in which religion is the true religion. From where I am, I can sort out every thought, inclination, temptation,and response to adversity. Every moment of a person’s life and heart can be sorted out and weighed against what the person was supposed to do and be in his or her life on earth. It may be hard to believe, but people do not find me through religion as people on earth believe. People must find me within themselves. Religion helps them do that. Religion is a framework or hallway down through which a person walks. There are many doors in this hallway. There are many rooms in this building. I want every person to walk this walk and to knock on every door until they have found me. It is only through Christ that people can truly deal with the great separator of sin. Sin separates people from me. All the other doors in the hallway can help people find me but they would still be separated from me. Through Christ, when people repent of their sins, they are closer to me than at any other time in their lives. Christ is the Great Door. This is not to say other believers cannot find me in part. However, if they want to find me in whole, they must come to me only through Christ. It is unfortunate that all men and women do not understand about Christ as the Great Door. When a man or women understands who Christ is and rejects Him or does not respond to Him they are writing their own ticket to hell fire. I am the judge. I will judge each person fairly. Every person knows this. Every person can make judgements on their own and they are expected to do so. I will not tell you that only certain people can make it into Heaven based upon certain criteria. You do not have and no one else has any way of measuring a person’s life. Only I can measure a person’s life.

Where will the world be in a thousand years?
I am sorry, that is not to be revealed to you.

I want to ask about suicide.
How horrible and grim. How disastrous for the human spirit. How grieved I am when one of my children makes such a decision. There are demons and evil spirits infesting the human soul. Many times, when a person is infested, their soul is so detached from their mind and heart they are darkened and cannot see me or hear me. There is never a time when taking your life is justified. Even if you are infested by an evil spirit, there is no justification for taking your own life. I can understand why a person takes their life but taking your life is still horribly wrong. If anyone is in such darkness they cannot see me or hear me. They are as close to hell as they will get without being there. When people are in hell they are truly in the outer darkness. In this outer darkness there is a fire but it is a fire that burns within the person’s heart and mind. This fire is the worst kind. This fire makes the soul thirst for just a tiny drop of my Living Water and in hell there is no Living Water, and there is no Light. Every person who truly understands the consequences of taking their own life and goes ahead and takes their life or the life of another will be judged accordingly. What most people hope for is that I will cut them a little slack when they are standing before me. This idea of my understanding fully is correct. I understand a person’s life more than they do. But I do not tolerate a person committing a sin based upon the hope that I will overlook it in the future. This is a false idea, and everyone who believes in this false idea, knows it is a false idea. You know from your own ministry that each person inherently knows some of the truth on some level. Each person is judged on what they know and what they did. Woe to those who are not honest and true. Woe to those who take a human life of any kind. Woe to those who do not treasure life in all its forms for they are bound to spend eternity in a fire and their teeth will crumble under the clenching of their jaws.

Lord, I see you as love. I see you as warm, caring, kind, and compassionate. I see you as being totally understanding. Yet, here you are talking like this. How could a person of love condemn people to hell like this?
Actually, I don’t condemn anyone to anywhere. Everyone writes their own ticket. Everyone gets on their own train to wherever they end up. I give people opportunities to make choices. People chose where they want to go by the choices they make in their lives. What so disturbs me is that people make the wrong choices knowing when they make the choice that the choice is wrong and then they think I will be understanding and let them slide by and alter their destination. Each of us carves our future in stone that cannot be erased except by repentance and coming to Christ for forgiveness. All the mistakes, all the wrongs, all the decisions made with a sinful heart can be erased when people come to the Cross and understand who Christ was and is and then they must repent and turn away from their sinful life.

Lord, can you tell me more about sin.
Sin is when people go their own way rather than my way. Every person has their own mind, their own heart, and their own soul. When people turn away from me and do what Satan wants them to do then that is a sin. People are born with 2 ears. I am not talking about the physical ears, I am talking about spiritual ears. One spiritual ear is tuned to Satan’s call. One spiritual ear is tuned to my Call. People do make choices about who they want to listen to. The sinful nature of man is within the person from birth. Every person is born with selfishness in their heart and an ear to evil and darkness as well as an ear to me. Satan and I conflict within each person. There is truly a war for each person’s soul. Some people are born and raised in total darkness and never hear my voice yet they still have the spiritual ear to hear me. Woe to those people who would do such a thing to a child. Even after you come to Christ and repent, you still have that ear that can hear Satan. You must continually pray that you resist the cunning voice of Satan and listen only to me. What everyone must understand is that after you repent then Satan will still come after you. Accepting Christ into your life does not mean you no longer are deaf to Satan and temptation. Many people want to believe they are deaf to Satan after salvation but it is not true. What you and others must remember is that I am always speaking to you.

Before we go I want to remind you that a church building can be beautiful but without me it is not a church. Keep your eye on me as well as the beauty of your web site. I love you my son.

Thank you Lord.
