Im glad your response was the first I saw when I came back to this thread.
I was praying for a friends elderly parents health and yet again asking for some stringth for myself. I was starting to fall asleep when I got a message , I know it was from the Holy spirt . I turned on the lights and wrote it down because I knew this was something that was special and has never happened to me before. Ive been struggling with alot of things for a long time. Ive always knew the Lord was taking care of me because I would have been gone long before. It was awsome to get this message. It only reinforced my believing that He was actually real. I felt like if He took the time to give a simple guy like me a speacial message like that , It would be pretty awful to not share it with others.
I seldom start preaching to anyone. Especially on the internet, heck, I dont even go to church on a regular basis.
But, I Know its from The Holy Spirt. Thought last night I should keep it to myself, but this morning realized this was something very special and was intended to share.

You need to start keeping dream journals and journeying. Thats the two most important things you should be doing to protect yourself during a journey of this magnitude.
Once you dip your toes into the water and start believing all hell tends to break lose and dream journals and journeying will enable you to track your psyches response to the entities and allow you to maintain a better system of grounding by being able to see how they manifest symbolically into your thought patterns.edit on 20141America/ChicagoquAmerica/Chicago5431132014 by onequestion because: (no reason given)
BUT - I keep hearing all the warnings of a BIG LIE that will deceive millions of people. At this point let me say I never was into religion until I was saved at 19, and then I read the Bible voraciously. In those pages I found some comfort, then found places that told me I was destined to burn in hell no matter what I did, then found more pages that said I was saved from that. The more I read, the more I was confused. None of this has wavered my faith in God, but it has made me question my faith in my fellow man. I realized men chose what books we all would be able to read, back in the Council of Nicea, and I wondered what was removed. What beliefs and miracles were hidden from us during that Council?
You wrote this thread because of doubts, but are you really just seeking people's validation and approval of your chosen path by which you can further quash down that small voice attempting to restrain you? We all do this in order to ease the conscience so that we can do what we want to do. Are you any different here? How about repenting of your practices, lay it on the table in prayer, and pick up the gospel again? Or are you already addicted to these experiences that you prefer them over renewing your mind through the words given to us?
"Many things, I well know, have escaped us, through length of time, that have dropped away unwritten."
"Even now I fear, as it is said, 'to cast the pearls before swine, lest they tread them underfoot, and turn and rend us.' For it is difficult to exhibit the really pure and transparent words respecting the true Light to swinish and untrained hearers."
