The Advantages of Being in and out of Christianity
I have been in and out of Christianity several times and the advantage is that I get to see clearly what the difference is.
Since I am a practitioner of metaphysics, law of attraction, magick, and spirituality, it can become confusing and unclear what exactly are the causes of the effects in my life. I am sure many people on the spiritual path also go through the same thing.
Satan is a liar and his weapons are deception and confusion. Satan creates counterfeit religions and spiritual paths for people to follow. A counterfeit is something that can look like the real thing, but it is incomplete and there are things missing or corrupted.
Satan also seeks to replace and leave out God’s ways with his counterfeit ways.
I have tried using meditation audios to download spiritual gifts and energy from new age angels and entities. But those power I have found are so dim in light and very weak and limited. Satan maybe able to empower those who do not belong to Jesus but ultimately his ways are far lesser in comparison.
Whereas for those who belong to Jesus, the Bible says:
John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
I have found out that in my life, the major cause of good effects in my life come from the blessing of God. When I leave Christianity and focus on using new age methods of visualization and law of attraction or other magical and metaphysical methods without Christ, I find my results dwindling and my power decreasing.
The keywords here are “With Christ” or “Without Christ”.
I realize that it is the power that comes from God and Jesus that makes my spiritual and physical activity have success. It is way more powerful that some “impersonal vortex” that people are trying to tap into on their own. Jesus and His Holy Spirit are the energizing power that lifts a believer’s spirit into heavenly realms.
Jesus amplifies all the power of the universe by many times.
Psalms 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Visualization and power of subconscious mind operates at the fourth dimension. Satan and his false gods operate at the fifth dimension (Second Heaven). God and Jesus operate at the sixth dimension (Third Heaven). Different philosophies and religion have all kinds of reasoning that sounds good in theory. But it takes experience to know the difference in power.
1Co 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
1Co 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
1 Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.
Only God’s way gives me all the answers that makes everything so clear about life, reality and spirituality. Without God, there is much confusion and uncertainty and bewilderment.
Isaiah 45:17 But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.
Whenever I come to God, I always receive more of what I want, not less. The devil wants us to think that we may get less of what we want when we come to God. But that is not true. The blessing that comes upon you draws more wanted things to you.
Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
Life is an experience of knowing God. Like Feng Shui, you can know the difference by activating or deactivating certain formations and seeing the difference over time in your life. You can also see a noticeable difference in life with and without Christ over a period of time while focusing on different paths and applications.
Christianity is the only path compared to all other religions where there is no condemnation when you come and go as you please.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Thank God for divine intervention in the life of a believer to bring them back into alignment with His intended destiny for them even when they go astray.
Psalms 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psalms 139:10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
When you belong to Jesus, you will find that it is not just you walking with Him, but it is He that is walking with you.
I have also observed that those who are constantly in the presence of God are more blessed than people of the world, or people of other religions. There is something about the life of Christ that is more real than the counterfeit offered by the devil.
Psalms 5:12 For thou, LORD, will bless the righteous; with favour will You surround him as with a shield.
Palms 92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
