  1. "Everything around you can change. Everything around you is subject to destruction and to desecration. But what God has placed within you is beyond the reach of human deception and corruption. It is beyond the reach of manipulation and seduction by any force, whether it be a human force or a force from beyond the world.

    This greater power within you is here to guide you and to protect you—to guide you to your greatest expression in life and your greater contributions to the world and to all life here. It is within you at this moment. And it will be within you each moment regardless of what happens on the outside.

    If your faith is in things seen and touched, you are placing yourself in great vulnerability. You are assuring that your future will be filled with anger and disappointment, shock and tragedy.

    You are entering very turbulent times in the world. The world is in decline. Its resources are diminishing. Yet human populations continue to grow. There has been great damage to the life-sustaining resources of this world. The environment has been compromised to a very serious degree. And there are forces from beyond the world who are here to take advantage of a weak and divided humanity.

    Where will your faith stand in the face of all these great travails and challenges? How will you maintain your focus on the great promise for humanity? How will you avoid losing faith in yourself, in other people, in nations, in governments, and in God, as your world undergoes cataclysmic change? Your life then is destined to immense disappointment, confusion and disillusionment if your faith is in things that are seen and heard and touched.

    It is the greater power of Knowledge—the Mystery, the evidence of things unseen—that must be the focus of your faith; that must be the heart of your religion; that must be the source of your encouragement, your wisdom and your guidance.

    This is the great faith. This is the faith that requires reinforcement. This is the faith that will ask of you to place your confidence in a greater unseen power—a power that you may only experience intermittently, or even rarely."

    A quote from The Pure Religion – Chapter 2: The Great Faith. I highly recommend this book by Marshall Vian Summers, it's free online.

  2. The following is my reply to a lady who wrote a reply praising the virtues of the YouTube religious videos. Here's my (edited) reply to her:

    Emily Pierce ~ You obviously have no concept of the spirit realm.

    Unbeknownst to most Christians, YouTube was concocted by the kingdom of darkness overlords for the purpose of using it as a forum for religious spirits to speak through human mouthpieces, as a means of controlling millions of Christians, and for extending the range and influence of their kingdom. The people who they use as human mouthpieces are anointed by religious spirits to rant out messages that may sound all spiritual and righteous, but which actually function as a vaccine which gives the hearers a tiny dose of the things of the spirit, but not a full dose of the real thing, which only the Holy Spirit can give, but due to the fact that YouTube is a demonic construct like TV he won't touch it with a ten foot pole. The worst effect of having received the vaccine is that it abates the person's desire to pursue the real thing by causing them to be satisfied with the counterfeit.

    The kingdom of darkness overlords regard the nonreligious videos on YouTube as worldly fluff, but which work to their benefit as those videos help to legitimize YouTube, and to quell people's suspicion that there could be anything wrong with YouTube.

    In case you don't already know, the kingdom of darkness overlords are the fallen angels. In Ephesians 6:12 in the King James Version the Holy Spirit speaking through the Apostle Paul revealed that the fallen angels run the world system, which is why the world is so messed up (YouTube epitomizes the world system). In that verse Paul referred to the fallen angels as 'principalities.' They are people (i.e. spirit beings) who have superior intelligence (albeit unfathomably evil intelligence), but who don't have physical bodies, so that most people have difficulty comprehending that they even exist simply because they can't see them, nor can they comprehend that they influence just about everything they do in their day to day routines.

    Also in case you don't already know, the religious spirits are the highest echelon of foot-soldier/warrior demons in the kingdom of darkness hierarchy who are meticulously groomed by the principalities to know how to mimic the Holy Spirit, and some of them can be quite convincing, as can be seen in the most popular YouTube religionists. Also, as has been proven by history, most false teachers and false prophets are very popular, some of whom have huge followings of people (as can be seen in Simon Magus of Acts 8:9-24 in the King James Version), whereas the genuine prophets of the Lord are most often ignored, regarded with suspicion, disdained, ridiculed, rejected, persecuted, and sometimes killed.

    So what all this means is that everything you hear in these religious YouTube videos isn't the Holy Spirit speaking through representatives of the kingdom of God who he has sanctioned and appointed to represent him, what you're hearing is religious spirits who are really good at mimicking the Holy Spirit speaking through people who willingly allow themselves to be used as human mouthpieces for religious spirits to speak through, who by so doing make themselves traitors to the kingdom of God, and they're going to face a huge comeuppance for it when the Lord comes back (and for all their talking expertise they won't be able to talk themselves out of it). I know that sounds extreme, but it's the truth (as we will soon find out). They're going to find out first hand what the Lord was talking about in Luke 12:47-48 in the King James Version.

    Most Christians would never figure out or believe that all of these religionists posting videos on YouTube are functioning as gatekeepers for the kingdom of darkness. The thought of that would never enter their minds, nor would it ever enter the minds of the gatekeepers themselves. They all mean well, but the Lord never sent them or sanctioned them (the proof of that being their presence on YouTube). They're all doing their own thing in the Lord's name thus making themselves false ambassadors.

    Moreover, their followers are as guilty as they are for being complicit in the scam by being their followers. The main reason they follow the religionists is because their teachings give the hearers a satisfying full feeling (very similar to the feeling one feels after eating a big meal of delicious food), but the full feeling soon goes away and they have to run back for another feed, and on and on it goes, which is what I call "The itching ears syndrome" (per 2 Timothy 4:3-4 in the King James Version), which is an addiction, which is a work of the flesh. Plus during times of no outpouring of the Holy Spirit (as in this day and time) the system churches end up being hijacked by religious spirits who work diligently to engender the itching ears syndrome in their congregations so that they will keep coming back for more. By making full use of this ploy the religious spirits usurp ownership and control of the churches from behind the scenes without ever being detected.

    The itching ears syndrome actually functions very much like a curse. The way a curse plays out is that it keeps the person going in circles spiritually, going round and round and round, year after year making the same mistakes and never progressing spiritually, just as the Psalmist said:

    "God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes therefore they fear not God." (Psalm 55:19 in the King James Version).

    All of this is why I say that Christians should avoid the YouTube religionists like the plague, because a plague is exactly what they are, a spiritual plague, a spiritual disease, who the religious spirits use to exploit the weak and those who are devoid of spiritual discernment (same thing).

    Christian YouTube addicts would do well forego poisoning themselves spiritually by watching these spiritually worthless religious YouTube videos and spend the time they'd spend doing that seeking the Lord directly themselves in the quietness at home without the assistance of these self-appointed 'professionals' who are doing their own thing in the Lord's name (some of whom are making a lot of money doing it).
