Good morning everyone and God bless you all as we begin December 2019! I have been up since 5 a.m. reading blogs and chatting with friends here on WordPress. One of the blogs I read this morning is written by an atheist. She talked about atheist “nontracts” that she said were similar to the Gospel tracts Christians use to evangelize at times. She discussed the contents of the atheist informational tracts and one of them was called, “Dear Christian.” It is a tract that is supposed to challenge the Christian’s beliefs and “open” the Christian’s mind to “free thinking.” I found it very interesting, but there is just one thing, man’s philosophy cannot answer the truth of the spiritual realm that is found in God’s Word. No amount of philosophy will ever change what I have lived through!
I have posted comments to the atheist’s blog in the past, but she never approves my comments or responds. I am assuming that is because she has no answer and my testimony really freaks her out. What do you do when you are an atheist who encounters a guy who used to be an atheist, but he isn’t anymore because of the intense spiritual events he lived through? What do you do when that guy preaches the Gospel to you and tells you all about the spiritual events he lived through? What happens is you are confronted with the truth and you have a choice to make. You can dismiss what I tell you and think I’m crazy and ignore me, but the fact remains that these events happened to me and my family whether you believe it or not. What is crazy is fighting God with your mind as you try to act more intelligent than God with your human philosophy. Man’s philosophy leads to spiritual bondage, not freedom.
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
Man’s philosophy is slave thinking, not free thinking. Here is the comment I left under the atheist blogger’s post. She did not post my comment on her blog and she did not respond. This could be called, “Dear Atheist.”
Interesting. I used to hate God and I hated Christians. Let me ask you this, what happens when all your philosophy gets blown away when God opens your eyes to the spiritual realm? When I was in 8th grade (back in 1991), we moved into a house that we soon found out was possessed by a demon. We suffered poltergeist torment the entire 4 years I was in High School and it changed our lives forever. Lights going on and off at random, our dog getting kicked out of thin air, my sister waking up one night to a dark figure standing in the corner of her room, it made a breathing noise in my left ear, took clothes out of my parent’s closet and laid them over my Dad while he slept, crayon marks all over the walls and high ceilings, it knocked framed art off the walls, it lit a candle in my sister’s room, and many other terrifying things it did to us…for the entire 4 years.
I ended up coming to Jesus my freshman year in college at the age of 18 (1996) and I went home that Christmas break and rebuked the demon out of our house in the Name of Jesus. I have been following Jesus and preaching the Gospel ever since. Philosophy is an endless circle of dialogue that never gets anywhere and won’t save your soul. We all need a Savior and His Name is Jesus. I didn’t want to believe it either and I used to get real mad whenever Christians would preach to me. Living in a haunted house and being terrorized night and day for 4 years changed all that.
My life continued to be supernatural after I accepted Christ and in the summer of 1998 I had two encounters with angels in Denver. 14 years later in 2012 I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I ate a sandwich on oat bread on 4-28-2012 and went into anaphylaxis for the first time in my life. The torturous pain lasted all day and that night I went into anaphylactic shock and stopped breathing. I died for a short time, left my body, and I was with Jesus. I did not see Him, but He walked over to me and said, “It’s okay.” I was at perfect peace and there was absolutely no pain. I came back in my body in the powerful wind of the Holy Spirit and my wife witnessed the entire miraculous event as she was praying over my body.
I am 41 now and I have been following Jesus and preaching the Gospel for 23 years now. All I can tell you is Heaven and hell are real and people better make the right choice. God and His angels are very real and so are Satan and his demons. Your philosophy does not hold up to the Truth of God’s Word and it never will. Maybe someday He will have to show you the spiritual realm and prove it to you like He did for me.
I published my testimony on Amazon. It’s called, “One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life.” If you would like a free copy of my eBook, please contact me and I will send you one directly from Amazon.
God bless you,
You could be an atheist philosopher and talk in circles until you are blue in the face, and nothing you say would ever change the Truth God has revealed to me! I hated God, Christians, and the Bible, until God showed me it was all true. I am a living testimony and witness that God exists, Jesus exists, the Holy Spirit exists, and so do angels, demons, Heaven, and hell, and no amount of atheist questioning is ever going to change that Truth! I am free in Jesus and I give Him praise for saving my soul!
We are all sinful and we all need a Savior. You can try and fight it and hate God, but you will lose in the end. I often wonder if I would have accepted Jesus had I never lived in that house in High School. I don’t know, but it definitely sent me running to Him much faster!
“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”
The philosophy of man is just an endless circle of questions that are never answered. It goes on and on with no definitive answers because it is man’s attempt to understand himself without our Creator and it will fail every time. It is man’s attempt to define right and wrong without addressing the problem of sin, and it will fail every time. It is man’s attempt to find meaning in life without believing in and loving God, and it will fail miserably every time. We were created to be known and loved by God, but sin corrupted our flesh. We cannot understand ourselves, what is right or wrong, or find true meaning in life without God! Without God we are lost, poor, weak, naked, and blind. Every atheist will find that out when they take their last breath.
“You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.”
Jesus speaking in Revelation 3:17
Jesus Christ is alive and I am a living testimony of that Great Truth! He has rebuked a demon through me, He has shown me His mighty angels, He was right there with me when I died in 2012, and He put me back in my body and brought me back to life by the power of the Holy Spirit! We receive His salvation by faith and I pray in His Holy Name that everyone would accept Jesus before it is too late!
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
Jesus loves you! Jesus died for you to forgive your sins and set you free from sin and death! I am warning you that without faith in Jesus, you will die in your sins and pay for them yourself in eternity! Receive Jesus by faith and you will be forgiven and receive eternal life!
Grace and peace to you all!
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”
Jesus speaking in John 3:16-18
“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.”
Jesus speaking in John 5:24
“For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
Jesus speaking in John 6:40
