We cannot be back to this…

There is a simple thought..but quite ugly and damaging thought..that surfaces itself….and rears its lie…

The thought..that favor of God is shown by…

Physical health..no headaches..no cancer..no disease that steals your body from you…

Money…that just appears from the skies..because one prayed enough..

A car..that glimmers in the sunlight…

A home with more bathrooms than even the orphanage would need…

Clothing from designer labels….

Food…gotten from the finest restaurants…coffee at the best coffee spots…

Everything in order…no want no need…

And if you do have…

Well..a disease that wracks havoc on your immune system..or unbearable headaches…

Or eat from Walmart…and the Dollar Tree…

And have coffee from gas stations…and your milk too..

Use the bus for getting around..and a car that a dear friend lets you use…and some not that…

And share a space with roomies..and for some..a space on the floor..or next to a heating vent on the streets…

That well you have lost God’s favor…you must have a demonic..ugly..sinful force making home inside of you…

And it is time for you to come clean..and get yourself straightened out…and pray for deliverance…

Yet I keep coming back to Jesus…

Did not own a chariot..or fine horses..walked a lot…

Did not eat at the palace…actually avoided it..ate with the commoners..and shared their food…

Slept on the ground when traveling….and occasionally in a home as a guest…and in the home of his mother…

And faced many physical hardships..most especially..the cross…

So are we to believe that Jesus had to be removed of a demon or demons…?

Is that the general thought…

Is that why He clocked more miles on foot..than we will ever do..in our cute little cars…and me on the bus…?

Is that why He ate fish..and some pieces of bread..with the umm(clearing throat)..commoners…?

And when He did sit down to a feast..known as the Last Supper…He watched the disciples feet…and taught them..this is how you treat people…

Is that why..He was beaten beyond recognition of His own mother..which takes some doing…

Nailed to a cross..had His lung pierced..mocked…because He needed to be cleared of demons…?

Is that why He went into the Temple..what we now call the church..and with a whip in hand..filled with anger…and destroyed the whole lot…?

Did He do these things..suffer these things…because He needed healing..cleansing..God was not on His side…?

Or perhaps…did Jesus show us..this is the reality of life…

From the measures we have taken and created..these forces…

When Jesus spoke to the woman at the well…

And for a few pointers…he was not supposed to be talking to her..she was well..a loose woman..one who got paid in various ways..for various services….

And do not think we do not do it today…

We just do it with I phones..and credit cards..and cars that say..I am blessed….nah nah nah nah….

He did not slam His hand on her forehead and speak..demons be gone…nope…He spoke to her about..living…and what she was doing was really hurting her…

And do any of you think this was easy for her…?

Come on…she had to go back..and tell about the “guy” at the well..and leave the man she was with…and deal with the already insurmountable ridicule she was and would receive…and then find something to eat…and a place to rest…without going back to the thing she had been told..was what she was meant to do…please do not make me say it…

And she is one of well..a lot of examples..of people who were sick..dead..suffering…bleeding..headaches…disease…and Jesus just spoke to them…and some made choices..to change their world…

And Jesus not one time..spoke about removing a demon…and life would be better..and God will love you now..and you have entered His favor…nope..

There are times when Jesus spoke to demons…and actually discussed with them..to release this person…and they were from times..when we opened the door to these sorts…

Like the time my sister..with her girlfriends..decided to play with a Ouji board…and I went running from the house…

It is from looking at porn….and seeing others hurt..and tossed about..like garbage…

It is from filling our bodies with drugs…so we look better…somehow…

It is from betraying the essence of who we are..for something cheap…

That is a demonic presence…and once played with..hard to make an exit…

Sickness..headaches..poverty…no car..disease..and something that kills you…

Is not possession…some demon taking roost in you…

It is facing this world..and what we have created…and how we have created it…

And the many toxins we push out into this world..are going to show themselves…

I have spent three days now…wishing someone would rip out my spine…

And I am scared about relationships…being honest people…

But it is not because I have lost the favor of God..and I have been deserted…or have a demon I need to exorcise…

Here it is..plain and simple…

I was beaten..starved..and hurt…and my body is taking the brunt of it…

Just like my friend who has debilitating migraines..and that is such a nice word for them…and my other friend..facing ALS…stealing their body…

Time..toxins..society..hunger..drugs..have come a calling…

Not the demons..not God turning away from you…none of that..filth…

And on a side note…

I would rather have what I have..every second of every day…

Than your dinner at restaurants…a car to drive…pretty clothes..and a house…

And what one has to do..and the lies they speak..to have that..

Yes we are back to this…
