Yes, I got my peace back! After about a week of carrying around a burdened heart full of confusion I am now at peace once again. The spirit of confusion has left the building.
I met up with my pastors and hashed it all out….everything that was plaguing me which I had written about in my piece entitled, ‘Deception Unveiled?’ was laid all out on the table. And, as it turns out, I had no reason to be afraid of telling them what I was struggling with after all! Zero judgement on their part. I have not become a cessationist, either. I actually feel sad for that guy. To go through life thinking and teaching others that the gifts are not for today, to me, is a travesty. The Lord had plainly shown me in the past how the gifts are still viable today. The devil was trying to make me doubt what I already knew to be true.
I am no longer concerned with everyone else. I’m focused on my own walk and I have comfort in knowing I have discernment in these matters. I trust God. And Pastor Dick cleared something else up for me….sort of. I was worried that this Kundalini spirit was masquerading as the Holy Spirit. I had read that it was a false holy spirit, but what I didn’t understand was that it is a serpent demon, not a false holy spirit, which is specifically summoned by the Hindus. They are not asking for God Almighty’s Holy Spirit only to receive an imposter. The Hindus know who they are beckoning/summoning. But he didn’t really answer my question concerning what is happening in some of the churches as far as “Christians” supposedly being slain in the spirit and behaving in odd and disturbing ways. I put Christians in quotes because I don’t believe this particular group have gained true salvation. Do I have all the answers as far as deceptions go? No. But I do know that Christians can lose their way and open up doors to evil spirits. Is it the Kundalini spirit? I don’t know! Can we call on God in an improper manner only to receive deceitful spirits? That very well may be the case, but I just don’t know. But I’m not worried about it anymore. God has me…..But I’m still waiting on God to clarify this for me.
All I know is this, if we ask the one and only true God for the Holy Spirit He will not give us something else or allow evil to instead enter. And maybe I’m too quick to judge what I believe is or isn’t from God? I still really don’t know.
Luke 11:11-13 …11 What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; 12 or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
