I’m possessed!

When someone acts strange some might say, “that person must be possessed!”  Most of the time people don’t really believe it.  They are just saying it because it sounds right or it seems appropriate at the moment.  But stop and think about it for a moment.  Can people really be possessed?  Is there a spiritual realm out there that, though unseen, still exists?  Can we be sure?

“My words are Spirit and they are life, ” Jesus claimed.  Was He crazy?!!!  Spirit?!!!  Life?!!!  Jesus can see the spiritual realm because He created it.  He understands spirits.  He has authority over them.  He gives that same authority to those he chooses.

One of the verses I cling to during times of spiritual warfare is, “He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world.”  In other words, “Jesus who lives in me is greater than the devil who lives in the world.”  Jesus possesses me!  I am His treasured possession!  If God Himself possesses me then I am safe, for NO ONE can snatch me out of the Father’s hand!

I have a special gift from God in a friend with whom I pray often.  One of her favorite names for God is “Dear Sweet Holy Spirit.”  And He is.  The Holy Spirit is the unsung hero of the Trinity.  He is content to go about His business of pointing people to Jesus.  His is a True Servant’s Heart.  I love the Holy Spirit.  I would be nothing without Him.  I am so thankful for Him and for His possession of my life.  I am His treasured possession!  The possession of God through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Wow.  I stand in awe.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
