Hell and Heaven

False Holiness: Clarifying Outward Holiness

Sometimes, the Lord may tell you that something is wrong and you stop doing that thing but you start doing it in another form.

God really takes outward holiness clear and you can’t enter heaven without it.

My sister Rachael shared on how the Lord showed her that stretching hair using a blow dryer is just the same like relaxing it with cream and that people who do that are in hell today if they died without repenting. In this post, I’m going to share an experience that I had when after the Lord had told us to stop using artificial hair when He first visited us, I decided to start using cotton wool to braid cornrows in my hair.

Sometimes, the Lord may tell you that something is wrong and you stop doing that thing but you start doing it in another form.

People do such things, even apart from examples like that of hair and you don’t know that you’re still trapped by the devil. The way is narrow and you have to make sure you’re not deceiving yourself. These things may look so trivial to us and yet they can cost us our souls for all eternity. The Lord told me that many people who think they are following holiness are actually deceived and are practicing false holiness.

Am sharing this so that you can check yourself and be warned. The way is extremely narrow. Its not only about hair nor is it justice about women, but both males and females from all races do various things thinking they are following holiness not knowing they are deceived.

The following is just an example.

I had plaited cornrows using cotton wool and it was a normal day just like any other, then I went to sleep.

At night, I started seeing demons entering the room. They all surrounded me and started strangling me.

Immediately, I knew that it was about my hair. 1 Timothy 2:9-10, 1 Peter 3:3. I n the spiritual realm, you just know some things without anyone even telling you. I was struggling to get out of their grip and fighting to wake up. I was kicking my legs up in the air and moving my hands up and down vigorously trying to wake up, to no avail. This demon that was strangling me was tall and had a thick long tail. Its skin was greenish in appearance and it’s flesh had no pores at all but it was just smooth. It was also smelling bad and I kept spitting saliva while struggling to get out of its grip because it was smelling horrible! It was strangling me so hard that its muscles in its arms were even tight. This same demon was looking me straight in the eyes and it screamed, “eeeeeeeeeee!!! ” in a freaky voice, celebrating! I knew that if I was to escape, I should wake up, but I found myself coming out of my body instead. I looked and saw behind me, my body lying lifeless . I was literally dead. I saw my body lying on the bed. The light had been on in my bedroom but when I came out of my body, it was pitch black. I was exactly how I had been in the physical realm, including being barefoot since I had been sleeping and I could feel the cold floor under my feet. Everything that exists physically manifests spiritually. If someone had come into the room, they would not have seen me in the spiritual but would have just seen my physical body lying lifeless on the bed. I was alone with these scary demons! I tried for a long time to fight but couldn’tand get back in. I kept begging, “Lord Jesus have mercy on me! Please help me! Have mercy on me please! ” But there was not even a trace of any sound. I looked to see if He was coming but there was nothing. It was very dark and there was no answer. I was alone with these demons. Nor was there any sign of His presence or assurance or warmth at all!

Then these demons held me by the legs and started dragging me to hell! They were dragging me on a place that had sharp stones and taking me deeper. Other demons in hell came running to come and join in torturing me. They are spirits. No one had to go and tell them but they knew what was happening and came running. I could hear them running hard as they came! and I could see that they were preparing to rape me! One of those which came running had a huge iron private part shaped like an arrow and it wanted to rape me! They were not talking to me but they were making celebrations sounds like, “wooo! wooo! wooo! ” and dancing and looking straight at me while dragging me and preparing to start the torture.

Then I screamed, “Lord Jesus, if you help me, I promise I’ll unplait my hair tomorrow” and instantly, I opened my eyes and was back in my body. God’s mercy. Because of cotton wool, I’d have gone to hell.

This is just one example. After God had said that outward adorning leads people to hell, I had replaced artificial hair braids by plaiting cornrows using cotton wool using thread but to the Lord, they are all attachments. This was false holiness. In the same way, you can stop stretching your hair using relaxer cream and start using a blow dryer to stretch it and to you, you will think you’re obeying the Lord but you don’t know that you’re still doing the same thing, only in another form. You can stop listening to secular music but you’re listening to gospel music with worldly beats etc. You’re not doing so many other things but you don’t know that you’ve replaced them with other things. To you, it may seem like you’re following holiness but you don’t know that you’re following false holiness.

Luke 11:33
“No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.

I know that many people are doing this and they think they are right in God’s eyes. You have to stay as far away from the APPEARANCE of evil as possible. Stop trying to cling to the world and show the world that you’re a child of God or else you’re just deceiving yourself. Jesus says that He who seeks to save his life will lose it and who loses it for the sake of the gospel will find it.

The way to heaven is narrow and there is only one way. You can’t go there while being Lukewarm.

Jesus Saved Me from Death

I thought that maybe I should declare scripture and when I managed to open a bible, it was as if the letters were glittering! I realized that THE WORD OF GOD IS ALIVE! I could see that each and every word in the bible was so precious.

While at work on Saturday22nd September 2018, I started feeling unwell. When I went home,I noticed I had a cough and had flu. On Sunday, I was still sick with flu and cough, but in the evening I also developed a high fever. On Monday morning, I woke up feeling so sick I couldn’t even go to work.

But when I went to the hospital, the doctor said it was just flu and would go away in a matter of days.
He gave me a painkiller and some cough medicine. But I ‘ve had flu several times before and this didn’t feel like it was just flu. I was experiencing variations of high fever and extreme cold, loss of appetite, severe body aches, weakness, and general unwellness. I couldn’t really eat starting Saturday night, and I was just forcing myself to eat a little cause I felt weak.

But then on Tuesday morning, I woke up feeling dramatically better. I felt strong, my appetite was back, and I was convinced I was almost completely healed. It was a dramatic change because by Monday evening I was still very ill and still lacked appetite. My husband had gone out, and I was home with my younger sister, Lois and another relative.After showering, I had my breakfast without a struggle as I felt fine and my appetite was back. I then laid down on a couch, watching TV. The time was around 10 AM.

Shortly afterward, I noticed my phone battery was low, so I got on feet to put it on the charger.
When I stood up, before taking any step, I noticed that I was extremely weak and dizzy. I could also hear a very loud ringing in my ears, ding ding ding!  I immediately sat back on the couch and decided to rest until I felt better.

As I laid down on the couch, I couldn’t really tell the moment it happened; I just discovered that I had blacked out and was in the process of dying! I couldn’t see anything, I lost consciousness of everything around me, and I could feel my soul separating from my body at great speed!
I didn’t think I was dying, I knew I was dying.

The whole sensation of your soul leaving your body is never a good one. It is a scary experience.
I just found myself lifting up my hand with great desperation and shouting at the top of my voice, ”JESUS!” Immediately, I gained consciousness, I could see everything around me, but my heart was racing, I was sweating, and I was shaking uncontrollably.

I was suddenly extremely sick, and I knew that I was still dying. My soul was still fighting to leave my body and I totally had no control over it. I was desperate and I thought, ”Maybe if I hold on to a physical thing, I tried holding on to the couch, I could see that my soul just passed right through it and it was just my physical body that held on.”

All this time I was extremely sick and I thought at any moment I would just collapse and die. My whole body was just shaking and I couldn’t make sense of anything. In these moments the realization that life is a personal journey hit me. I was praying, and I was so dizzy and weak. I thought that maybe if I stood up, I’d feel more alive.

But even when I stood up, my soul was still fighting to leave my body. I was declaring life and healing.
When I stood up, my whole body was still shaking extremely, and the only thought I had was for me to go to the bedroom to get the anointing oil and anoint myself while declaring healing.
(James:14)

The living room where I was is just next to the bedroom, but when I stood, I knew I wouldn’t make it to the bedroom, I knew was just going to collapse and die. I absolutely had no power over my life.
I saw my sister making her breakfast, and I knew she couldn’t help me. I knew no one could help me.
My sister had not realized what was happening, as she was in the kitchen.

I started to call her, ”Lois!Lois!Lois!” When she saw me, I saw that she panicked.
She began asking me, ”What’s wrong?!” She ran to where I was and she held me, all I could tell her was, ”am dying! am dying!” I was shaking so much, that when my sister held me, I shook her too.
I just told her, ”am extremely sick! am dying!”

And I knew she couldn’t help me. My sister later told me that she got so scared she thought I would literally die in her arms. I knew I couldn’t keep myself alive and that my sister couldn’t keep me alive even if she wanted to. Thoughts crossed my mind of how much more loyal to Jesus we should be than to any other person because everyone else remains behind and you go on to meet Jesus alone.

At this point, I didn’t know whether I would go to heaven or to hell. I was just blank.
All I knew was that I would die. I told my sister to call my husband, She just came over on Saturday and didn’t know how I had saved him in my phone and she was busy asking me, ”wait, what is he saved as?” I was just like,” call him, call him”

But I knew that even my husband couldn’t help me. I couldn’t really make sense of anything happening around me, I could just hear Lois telling my husband,’Rachael is really really really really really sick………….” I couldn’t hear how the whole conversation went, it was as if I was drifting into unconsciousness. I thought that maybe if I drank water it would make me feel alive,but when I got a bottle of water to drink, I was shaking so much it almost spilled and even after drinking it, I was fighting so hard to leave my body, and I was extremely sick, weak and still shaking.

My sister was panicking, and telling me, ”let’s call mum, shes on prayers today” But my mum didn’t pick the call because she happened to be praying at the time. My Sister was trying to reassure me that I wouldn’t die, that I’d be okay, but I knew that was going to die at any moment.

I thought that maybe I should declare scripture and when I managed to open a bible, it was as if the letters were glittering! I realized that THE WORD OF GOD IS ALIVE! I could see that each and every word in the bible was so precious. And because I knew I would die at any moment, I envied those who would still be able to read the word of God because I wished I had read it much more than I did.

I realized it was much more precious than gold and that to the chance to read it is such a huge privilege.
I was so weak, I couldn’t read even a single verse, but I saw light shining on each and every word!
It seemed like a refreshing spring! Children of God, let us spend much time reading the bible, it is a very precious gift from God. On the day you die, you will realize just how precious it is but you will not be able to read more of it.

I very much envied my sister and the other relative who was not dying and could still read it, but I realized that they too did not yet understand just how precious the word of God is.
I wished for a second chance just so that I could obsessively read the bible.
Even though I couldn’t read anything, just seeing the words on the page where my bible was opened, I felt a great warmth of the Holy Spirit in my heart, as if my heart leaped for joy, at seeing the word of God!

I was still declaring healing. But I was so weak most of my declarations were just whispers and mumbles, ”Jesus please help me. I will live, I will not die.” I began to feel better, when my husband arrived, he found me sitting up. He couldn’t believe it because I seemed fine. It was as if my sister had just lied when she told him I was really really really sick.

Days before I got sick, my husband had seen a vision of an ancient army coming from a place between the east and south. In the vision, the coming of the ancient army was like a déjà vu.
He saw that this ancient demonic army has been there through the ages, even in the time of David.
He saw that wherever it passes, it leaves total destruction and death. And in the vision, he knew that it was coming to our home.

On Sunday night when I got very sick, God reminded my husband of this vision and told him to anoint our house for a “PASS OVER”. So he anointed the doorposts and windows like the Israelites did during passover. So after experiencing what I experienced, almost dying, I knew that it was the same attack God had showed to my husband just days before but God had already gone ahead of the enemy and our home would be passed over.

That very day in the afternoon, as I slept (I was still kind of sick), God spoke to me in a dream. He just told me, ”It’s about Calvary”. Immediately I knew He was talking about my healing being paid for on Calvary. And at that very moment even while still in sleep I knew that I was healed.
I was reminded of the centurion who asked Jesus to heal his servant by just saying the word and the servant was healed at the very hour Jesus spoke the word! (Luke 7:1-10)

Jesus told me that He had allowed this to show me that He is the only One who has power over my life.
It is only Him who can take my life and it is only Him who can give me life. Sometimes we can get carried away with life to a point that death seems like a story, like it can’t happen to you, but am here to tell you that death is very real. And it can come so suddenly.

All may be well, but in an instant, you could be breathing your last. Do not be ashamed of living your life for God no matter how many people are going the other way. You are on a personal journey. On that day no one will be able to help you but Jesus. It is better to look foolish today, for Christ’s sake, because on that day you will be the wisest.

Don’t engage in gossip, even if doing that may offend that ‘friend’ of yours who loves to gossip so much. They will not accompany you to the judgment seat. Don’t compromise to make people who still love the world to be “comfortable “around you. They will remain here, on the day you die and meet your sin in the afterlife.

Depart from all iniquity and save your soul. Prioritize JESUS no matter the situation, even if you end up looking foolish to the world, don’t mind the world’s opinion of you, they will remain behind when your time to die comes. I have been in situations where I have chosen to look foolish according to worldly standards, just because I didn’t want to disappoint Jesus.

Start regarding life as a personal journey. Do not feel lazy to pray and fast just because your prayer partner is feeling lazy. It is about you and Jesus.
The word of God is MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD, it will never pass away. Read the bible, fight the spirit of laziness in reading the bible. Make use of the time you have on earth and serve God to the best of your ability. On that, it will be worth it.
The world may have regarded you as foolish, or backward, but worldly smartness is actually the real backwardness. Think of someone who in 1970 stole money just to enable them to buy the latest clothes in fashion at the time and the person died and went to hell for stealing.
If you were to be shown the kind of clothes that made them steal, now they would look so backward, yet at the time they seemed so precious to that person. They have passed away.
Everything will pass away, only the word of God will remain.
Treasure the word of God.

Which Road Are You On?

When I looked to the sides I got scared because this path was in what seemed like a thicket!
Thick bushes that went really high, were on both sides of the road. It seemed impossible for anyone to find a way of penetrating through the bushes, the only way was to use this very narrow and steep path!
These bushes grew all along this place I was at

In a vision, I found myself walking alone on a path headed somewhere.
It was evening and darkness was fast approaching. Since I was alone, I decided to hurry so that by the time its dark I would have reached where I was going. As I hurried along this path I noticed it was very difficult to walk here, the road was very narrow and as I walked I came across places that were so steep that if you didn’t pay special attention you could fall down! I also came across huge depressions that seemed to have been made by heavy rain and I had to jump over them with much difficulty.

When I looked to the sides I got scared because this path was in what seemed like a thicket!
Thick bushes that went really high, were on both sides of the road. It seemed impossible for anyone to find a way of penetrating through the bushes, the only way was to use this very narrow and steep path!
These bushes grew all along this place I was at. And climbers that looked like they had been growing for years were all tangled up in trees, making the bushes to look even thicker.

Danger seemed to lurk in those bushes and the only way seemed to stick to the narrow path.
Fear gripped me as I imagined what scary creatures could be in the surrounding bushes.
I got so desperate to get out of this place that seemed so dangerous, but I couldn’t walk fast enough as there were so many obstructions; potholes that made it easy to stumble and fall, other parts of the road required climbing up then going down, as if they were small hills.

I felt exhausted and as it was quickly getting dark I was scared of walking down this path alone.
I thought to myself, “it’s so hard to walk here and its so dangerous, what made me use this path? why didn’t I use the highway everyone else is using?! ” I then saw other people walking on the highway which I wished I had used as it was much easier. I saw that this road was tarred, and extremely wide. It was a dual carriageway and vehicles were moving along this road.

I noticed that it was almost night time. Because it was tarred, this road was extremely smooth. I saw people who were walking on this road. They were not stressing and moving here was so easy.
I saw them walk so smoothly and there was nothing to make them stumble. The people here were smiling and so much at ease as they walked. Unlike the narrow path, this road was wide enough to accommodate even vehicles.

I didn’t see any dangerous bushes surrounding this road, it was all clear. I envied these people especially that night time was approaching and I didn’t have any company as I walked down the dangerous road I was on. I wished I had gone with these people so that I wouldn’t have to go through all the difficulties of the road I was on! As I looked at the thick bushes surrounding me, I imagined all sorts of creatures hiding there and just waiting to devour my flesh!

I then heard a voice call to me saying, “you!don’t ever walk on this road! It’s so dangerous! There are snakes on this road!” I recognized the voice. It was Satan trying to intimidate me out of walking in this path. It did seem dangerous but I was determined not to turn back! I decided that the only thing I could do since this road was dangerous was to run as fast as I could despite the obstacles, so I would get to my destination faster and be safe.

The vision ended.

The Lord then made me understand that this difficult narrow road is the way to heaven. You meet many obstacles on your journey to heaven, and there are times when it may seem so costly, but we must not turn back, we must instead run on ahead, clinging even closer to Jesus since so much danger lurks all around us. The road to hell is very broad, smooth and easy to walk on. You have much company while on this road, but the end thereof is eternal death. Don’t be discouraged even if you meet the steep parts of the path, or if you hear warning of the dangerous things that could happen to you while on this path, Satan just wants you to get off the path. Run straight ahead and don’t turn back, eternal life awaits you.

104-year-old Australian scientist to fly to Switzerland to end life

By CNN

A 104-year-old Australian scientist has started his journey to Switzerland where he plans to end his life, saying he “greatly regrets” living to his advanced age.

Botanist and ecologist David Goodall is traveling to the Life Circle clinic in Basel, accompanied by a nurse from pro-euthanasia organization Exit International, the group’s founder said.
Speaking on his 104th birthday, Goodall said if he had one birthday wish it would be to die. “No I’m not happy. I want to die… It’s not sad particularly, what is sad is if one is prevented (from dying),” he told Australian broadcaster the ABC.
The question of whether people should be able to legally seek help to end their lives is a subject of fierce debate around the world.
Euthanasia is still illegal in Australia, including in Goodall’s home state of Western Australia, although the state of Victoria plans to allow assisted dying from mid-2019.
