Watch the video linked through the title below:
It is an eye-opener! Most people have no idea this is going on. Until recently I, too, was not aware. I went about my daily life in middle America clueless. But it has become impossible to ignore. It is now time for us all to wake up! We are so close to losing our freedom and the world as we know it! We must stand for righteousness! The time for a great awakening has come. As we realize and recognize what and who is behind this evil, I believe it will usher us into a great spiritual awakening. I believe God is shining His cleansing light on the filth that has been going on in this nation and the world for far too long. Many are refusing to open their eyes. Those who do and get on board with His plan will rejoice. Those who refuse will perish.
Here is the description of the above linked interview from Mel K's channel on Rumble — Mel K welcomes the courageous super hero survivor of the CIA MK Ultra mind control program who lived to tell. A life in the bowels of the DC Swamp, abused beyond comprehension, used for all kinds of covert black ops for decades, Cathy was saved by Intelligence insider Mark Phillips, and risked her own life to save herself and her daughter by becoming a whistleblower who's congressional testimony was subsequently blocked for phony reasons of national security. Cathy speaks all over the world, and her testimony and journey to healing has helped thousands of SRA/MK ULTRA/Child Abuse survivors reclaim their lives, love themselves, and find peace through strength. This is a must see for anyone suffering from any kind of trauma or PTSD, and I highly recommend her book PTSD:Time To Heal as I used it myself to regain balance after my own traumatic injury. A joy to see such a resilient spirit in atime we all could use some inner healing.

I am adamantly opposed to wearing face masks. I believe forcing children to wear them is really a form of child abuse. Children very rarely get Covid and when they do they recover. The physical and mental trauma from wearing one is taking a huge toll on children. All the research I've done says masks can't possibly protect from a virus because viruses are so small they can easily pass through the weave of a mask. The example I have seen is it is like trying to keep a mosquito out by using a chain link fence.
But I'm also opposed because common sense says inhibiting oxygen intake and retaining carbon dioxide is very bad for your health. Why have natural health doctors prescribed hyperbaric oxygen chambers to saturate unhealthy cells with oxygen? Oxygenating cells is one of the best ways to rid them of disease! How foolish to deprive cells of oxygen and think we are making ourselves healthier! I've seen people jogging with masks!! Fear has taken hold of so many! I've also seen many in cars wearing masks when they are the only person in the car! What insanity! What has happened to common sense?
This excerpt from a letter from Dr. Mercola should convince anyone who is still wearing a mask to stop immediately. You can read the entire article here.
Mask Use May Pose a Risk for Advanced Stage Lung Cancer
While it’s well-known that gut microbiota affect your immune system and risk of chronic diseases, it was long thought that lungs were sterile. Now it’s known that microbes from your mouth, known as oral commensals, frequently enter your lungs.19 Not only that, but researchers from New York University (NYU) Grossman School of Medicine revealed that when these oral commensals are “enriched” in the lungs, it’s associated with cancer.20
Specifically, in a study of 83 adults with lung cancer, those with advanced-stage cancer had more oral commensals in their lungs than those with early-stage cancer. Those with an enrichment of oral commensals in their lungs also had decreased survival and worsened tumor progression.
While the study didn’t look into how mask usage could affect oral commensals in your lungs, they did note, “The lower airway microbiota, whether in health or disease state, are mostly affected by aspiration of oral secretions, and the lower airway microbial products are in constant interaction with the host immune system.”21
It seems highly likely that wearing a mask would accelerate the accumulation of oral microbes in your lungs, thereby raising the question of whether mask usage could be linked to advanced stage lung cancer. The National Institutes of Health even conducted a study22 that confirmed when you wear a mask most of the water vapor you would normally exhale remains in the mask, becomes condensed and is re-inhaled.23
They went so far as to suggest that wearing a moist mask and inhaling the humid air of your own breath was a good thing, because it would hydrate your respiratory tract. But given the finding that inhaling the microbes from your mouth may increase advanced cancer risk, this hardly sounds like a benefit.
Not to mention, the humidity inside the mask will allow pathogenic bacteria to rapidly grow and multiply and, since the mask makes it more difficult to breathe, you’re likely to breathe heavier, thereby risking inhaling the microbes even deeper inside your lungs.
Masks Are Harming Children and Adults
The “new normal” of widespread masking is affecting not only the environment but also the mental and physical health of humans, including children. It’s largely assumed that face masks are “safe” for children to wear for long periods, such as during school, but no risk assessment has been carried out.24 Further, as evidenced by Germany's first registry recording the experience children are having wearing masks.25
Using data on 25,930 children, 24 health issues were reported that were associated with wearing masks that fell into the categories of physical, psychological and behavioral issues.26 They recorded symptoms that:27
“… included irritability (60%), headache (53%), difficulty concentrating (50%), less happiness (49%), reluctance to go to school/kindergarten (44%), malaise (42%), impaired learning (38%) and drowsiness or fatigue (37%).”
They also found 29.7% reported feeling short of breath, 26.4% being dizzy and 17.9% were unwilling to move or play.28 Hundreds more experienced “accelerated respiration, tightness in chest, weakness and short-term impairment of consciousness.”
It’s also known that microplastics exist in human placentas,29 and animal studies show that inhaled plastic particles pass through the placenta and into the heart and brains of fetuses.30 The fetuses exposed to the microplastics also gained less weight in the later part of the pregnancy.31
“We found the plastic nanoparticles everywhere we looked — in the maternal tissues, in the placenta and in the fetal tissues. We found them in the fetal heart, brain, lungs, liver and kidney,” lead research Phoebe Stapleton of Rutgers University told The Guardian.32
Dr. Jim Meehan, an ophthalmologist and preventive medicine specialist who has performed more than 10,000 surgical procedures and is also a former editor of the medical journal Ocular Immunology and Inflammation, also conducted an evidence-based scientific analysis on masks, which shows that not only should healthy people not be wearing masks but they could be harmed as a result.33
Meehan suggests that the notion of mask-wearing defies common sense and reason, considering that most of the population is at very low or almost no risk of becoming severely ill from COVID-19. He also compiled 17 ways that masks can cause harm:34
Medical masks adversely affect respiratory physiology and function
Medical masks lower oxygen levels in the blood
Medical masks raise carbon dioxide levels in the blood
SAR-CoV-2 has a “furin cleavage” site that makes it more pathogenic, and the virus enters cells more easily when arterial oxygen levels decline, which means wearing a mask could increase COVID-19 severity
Medical masks trap exhaled virus in the mouth/mask, increasing viral/infectious load and increasing disease severity
SARS-CoV-2 becomes more dangerous when blood oxygen levels decline
The furin cleavage site of SARS-CoV-2 increases cellular invasion, especially during low blood oxygen levels
Cloth masks may increase the risk of contracting COVID-19 and other respiratory infections
Wearing a face mask may give a false sense of security
Masks compromise communications and reduce social distancing
Untrained and inappropriate management of face masks is common
Masks worn imperfectly are dangerous
Masks collect and colonize viruses, bacteria and mold
Wearing a face mask makes the exhaled air go into the eyes
Contact tracing studies show that asymptomatic carrier transmission is very rare
Face masks and stay at home orders prevent the development of herd immunity
Face masks are dangerous and contraindicated for a large number of people with pre-existing medical conditions and disabilities
Adding insult to injury, the first randomized controlled trial of more than 6,000 individuals to assess the effectiveness of surgical face masks against SARS-CoV-2 infection found masks did not statistically significantly reduce the incidence of infection.35
Considering the lack of evidence for their use, and the potential harms to human health and the environment, it’s no wonder that calls for peaceful civil disobedience against mandatory maskingare growing. The U.S. nonprofit Stand for Health Freedom has a widget you can use to contact your government representatives to let them know wearing a mask must be a personal choice.

Have you heard of the SPARS 2025-2028 document? If not, you might want to look it up. I watched most of this frightening video by Alex Jones. I am not a fan of Alex Jones, but was struck by the title, World Shocked by SPARS 2025-2028 Document, which I had not heard of, therefore I decided to watch some of it. If even 1/4 of what he says is true there is no way I would ever take the chance of putting the vaccine in my body. Since I have posted videos and watched many more that support much of the evidence he is presenting I have no reason to doubt his premise.
I am very concerned for friends who have taken the vaccine. If you haven't, please don't. And please warn everyone you know not to take it. There is a very diabolical plan associated with this whole COVID scam. Do your research. Your life and the life of those you love is at stake.

I know the format doesn't fit well on my page but because all the info is so important I am posting it in its entirety. It is another encouraging article from Dr. Mercola:
Chicken Little's Puppet Masters — Fear Destroys Freedom
While COVID-19 can hardly be called a major public health threat anymore, having now reached endemic status (like the seasonal flu), the fearmongerers who need this crisis to continue in order to complete the implementation of a Great Reset of the global economy and social structure aren’t letting up.
In a mid-March 2021 appearance on MSNBC News, National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins expressed dismay at the public’s display of independence, saying:
“Oh my God, Florida, stay out of the bars with your masks off! What are you doing? This is exactly the wrong thing to be doing unless you want to end up where Europe is.”
He’s referring to a new variant of SARS-CoV-2 that is, allegedly, now “causing so many problems” in Europe. But is it really? To be clear, there will be many new variants of this virus, just as the seasonal flu changes and evolves from year to year. The thing is, as viruses mutate within a population over time, they tend to become more benign.
Mutations: 'Much Ado About Nothing’
As reported by Mary Petrone, Ph.D., and Nathan Grubaugh, assistant professor in the department of epidemiology and microbial diseases at Yale, in a March 2020 CNN Health article:1
“A recent scientific article suggested that the novel coronavirus responsible for the Covid-19 epidemic has mutated into a more ‘aggressive’ form. Is this something we need to worry about? No, and here’s why …
The effects of mutation in real life are nuanced and generally innocuous. Using the idea of mutation to incite fear is harmful, especially in the midst of an epidemic like COVID-19 …
The genetic material of the virus is RNA, not DNA like in humans. Unlike with human DNA, when viruses copy their genetic material, it does not proofread its work. Because RNA viruses essentially operate without a spell-check, they often make mistakes.
These ‘mistakes’ are mutations, and viruses mutate rapidly compared to other organisms. While this might sound frightening, mistakes during replication usually produce changes that are neutral or even harmful to the newly generated virus. Neutral mutations, which neither improve nor hinder viruses' survival, may continue to circulate without any noticeable change in the people they infect.
Mutations that are harmful to the viruses are less likely to survive and are eliminated through natural selection. Fortunately, when mutations occur that help a virus spread or survive better, they are unlikely to make a difference in the course of an outbreak.
Viral traits such as infectiousness and disease severity are controlled by multiple genes, and each of those genes may affect the virus' ability to spread in multiple ways. For example, a virus that causes severe symptoms may be less likely to be transmitted if infected people are sick enough to stay in bed.
As such, these traits are like blocks in a Rubik's cube; a change in one characteristic will change another. The chances of a virus navigating these complex series of trade-offs to become more severe during the short timescale of an outbreak are extremely low.”
The Ever-Moving Goal Post
If you’ve paid attention, you’ve likely noticed that the goal post for “public safety” has been moved further and further away as we’ve gone along. At regular intervals, there’s been another Chicken Little warning that the sky is still falling and that we must not let down our guard.
First it was the number of deaths that was cause for alarm. Now we know that many of the so-called COVID-19 deaths were not, in fact, caused by the virus, while erroneous epidemiological models predicted millions of deaths lest drastic measures were taken.
As PCR testing took off, rising “case” loads seemed to confirm such dire predictions, sparking widespread panic. With 20/20 hindsight, we now realize that the cycle thresholds of these tests were set so high that even healthy, uninfected and noninfectious people tested positive.
This, in turn, allowed for the myth of asymptomatic spread to take root, and that then became the fear trigger, with everyone being a potential threat, no matter how healthy they appear.
The solution offered was for everyone to wear a mask at all times. Or two. Or perhaps three. Fortunately, even the experts backed off from suggestions of four layers. Yet, from the start, we knew, based on published science, that masks don’t work against viruses.
As “cases” skyrocketed in tandem with fraudulent PCR testing, we were then told the best thing to do is shut everything down for two weeks to prevent overloading hospitals. Stay home, save a life, let the virus die out.
But even though hospitals remained at functional capacity in most areas, as “cases” (read false positives) continued to rise, two-week lockdowns were turned into three weeks, then four. In some areas, lockdowns dragged on for months, yet it didn’t seem to have the desired effect on the case load. By this time, hospital capacity was entirely forgotten.
As lockdowns continued and people started to grumble, the “experts” in charge of this global organization (or more accurately, reorganization) warned that this was the new normal. Settle in. Get used to it. The virus doesn’t seem to be going anywhere, so our only hope is a vaccine. We just have to keep it together until then, and then we’ll all be safe again.
Alas, flies in the ointment appeared in the form of inexpensive treatments that worked just fine, and scientists and medical doctors sharing concerns about these novel “vaccines” that really aren’t and the public health dangers of lockdowns.
Censorship unlike anything the world has ever seen before was launched, and vaccine-deniers became the new enemy — worse even than those pesky asymptomatic healthy people that refuse to wear a mask.
Something had to be done about free thinkers and question-raisers, and so the goal post was moved again. The whole world, all 7-plus billion people, must get vaccinated, or else we’re all toast. This way, people will turn on each other and force each other to comply and stop with the questioning.
And so it continues. The sky hasn’t fallen yet, but we’re promised that unless we comply, it surely will. Any day now. Just a matter of time. Obey, and the experts will make sure we survive the inevitable pandemonium. Now, vaccine passports are being rolled out, and both private companies and entire nations are considering restricting any sense of normalcy to vaccinated-only. Aren’t you tired of chasing the goal post yet?
Chicken Little’s Puppet Masters
In a Wall Street Journal essay2 published March 18, 2021, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis urges readers not to trust “the elites,” pointing out that “Influential people in public health, government and the media” have “failed to rise to the moment.” He goes on:
“The COVID-19 pandemic represented a test of elites in the U.S., from public-health experts to the corporate media. The results have been disappointing. Policy makers who bucked the elites and challenged the narrative have been proven right to do so.
To begin with, highly publicized epidemiological models were as consequential as they were wrong … The lockdowns failed to stop the virus but did a great deal of societal damage along the way — damage that a more targeted approach, seeking to reduce total harms, would have been able to avoid (and did, in places like Sweden and Florida) …
Elites sent conflicting messages about the efficacy of cloth masks, the uniformity of risk across age brackets, the danger of outdoor transmission … Perhaps most damaging to public trust was the public-health campaign urging ‘15 Days to Slow the Spread’ … Going from ‘save the hospitals’ to ‘zero COVID’ represents one of the greatest instances in history of moving the goal post …
While it was abundantly clear by May that schools represented low-risk environments for the spread of COVID and that the consequences of prolonged school closures were potentially catastrophic, the corporate media did its best to obscure the data and stoke fear and panic among parents and teachers.
Had the media presented the data on schools in a rational fashion with proper context and perspective … millions of students would be in markedly better shape academically and socially.
For months we were told to ‘trust the experts,’ but far too often over the past year those who were most influential in our society — in public health, government and media — proved incapable of rising to the moment … We cannot simply undo the harm caused by flawed policies advocated by our elites, but we can resolve that we never let this happen to our country again.”
Who’s in Charge, Really?
DeSantis’ definition of “elites” is basically prominent public health and corporate media leaders. That may be appropriate for the critique offered in his article, but even these influential individuals are mere foot soldiers in the bigger scheme of things.
Above them towers a pyramidical power structure populated by globalist entities — nongovernmental organizations, think-tanks, private corporations and billionaire philanthropists — many of which we’ve never even heard of, and who rule without being seen.
In fact, one of the most influential yet universally overlooked global powerhouses, the Swedish Wallenberg family dynasty’s motto is “Esse non videri,” or in Swedish, “Att verka utan att synas,”3which translates into “To operate without being seen.”
The Wallenbergs’ involvement in banking, and technological and power infrastructure grants them immense power over entire nations, not to mention the global intelligence and surveillance apparatus as a whole.
I suspect that in the final analysis, we will find the little country of Sweden may actually be a most significant power player in the Great Reset. The hope, of course, is that by exposing this nefarious global takeover plan, we can stop it and reverse course.
Fauci Called Out for His Theatrical Performance
More locally we have Dr. Anthony Fauci, who surely qualifies as an elitist pharmaceutical priest whose advice we ought to balance with more rational perspectives. In a recent Senate hearing over the COVID-19 pandemic, Sen. Rand Paul confronted Fauci about his mask recommendations, saying:4,5
"You're telling everybody to wear a mask, whether they've had an infection or a vaccine. What I'm saying is that they have immunity, and everybody agrees they have immunity.
What studies do you have that people that have had the vaccine or have had the infection … are spreading the infection? If we're not spreading the infection, isn't it just theater? You've had the vaccine and you're wearing two masks, isn't that theater?"
When Fauci tries to defend his position by bringing up the issue of new variants that the vaccine may or may not defend against, which he says necessitates the use of a mask even if vaccinated, Paul strikes back saying:
“What studies show significant reinfection, hospitalization and death from the variants? None in our country. Zero. You’re making your policy based on conjecture. You have the conjecture that we’re going to get variants so you want people to wear a mask for another couple of years.
You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show. You can’t get it again … You’re defying everything we know about immunity by telling people to wear masks who have been vaccinated … If you have immunity, [wearing a mask] is theatre. You’re wearing a mask to give comfort to others. You’re not wearing a mask because of any science.”
Masks and Social Distancing Here to Stay?
In related news, BBC News reports mask wearing and social distancing in the U.K. may need to continue for “several years.”6 So says Mary Ramsay, head of immunization at Public Health England. Another extension on the foreign holiday (vacation) ban is also being considered.
The reason, again, is that no one can be free until the whole world has gotten vaccinated. The idea being presented, as DeSantis pointed out, is that we now have to reach a COVID-free state before we can start living life again. Meaning, as long as there’s a single specimen of SARS-CoV-2 anywhere on the planet, the whole world is at risk, as it will spread and grow, so no one can live as they please until the virus has been eradicated.
The goal post is now so far in the future, we can’t even see a glimmer of it in the distance anymore. The old saying, “Give them an inch and they’ll take a mile,” seems apt at this point.
At some stage, you must realize that the more you give in and obey, the more you have to give in and obey. There really is no end to what they can take from you, and holding on to the belief that your government would never [fill in the blank] is becoming more dangerous by the day.
It’s also important to realize that your government isn’t the ultimate power. Our government officials take orders too, believe it or not, from what is now commonly known as the deep state. It’s not a government at all, but a global, hidden power structure that is accountable to no one, while influencing and manipulating everyone to bring about a new world order.
The New World Order
In years past, this shadowy cabal of power brokers were referred to under the term the New World Order. In 2020, the World Economic Forum came out on the public stage and announced the Great Reset, which is nothing but the NWO rebranded. So, it’s a conspiracy no more.
In the video above, investigative journalist Harry Vox talks about disease outbreaks, quarantines and curfews being essential tools in the ruling class’ toolkit, and how these tools were planned to be used to usher in the next phase of control.
The interview, which took place seven years ago, sounds more than a little prophetic today, as these three indispensable tools for totalitarian control have been part of our reality for the past 12 months. In it, Vox also refers to “Scenarios for the Future of Technology and International Development,” a document by the Rockefeller Foundation, in which they lay out their “Lockstep” scenario, which details the global response to a lethal pandemic.
The Lockstep Scenario
While the name and origin of the virus differs, the scenario laid out in this document matches many of the details of our present. A deadly viral pandemic. A deadly effect on economies. International mobility coming to a screeching halt, debilitating industries, tourism and global supply chains. “Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers,” the document reads.
“In the absence of official containment protocols,” the virus spread like wildfire. In this narrative, the U.S. administration’s failure to place strict travel restrictions on its citizens proved to be a fatal flaw, as it allowed the virus to spread past its borders. China, on the other hand, fared particularly well due to its rapid imposition of universal quarantines of all citizens, which proved effective for curbing the spread of the virus.
Many other nations where leaders “flexed their authority” and imposed severe restrictions on their citizens — “from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries of communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets” — also fared well.
Listen to the disbelief in the interviewer’s voice when he asks if Vox actually believes that such a thing could happen, that we would have to stand in line to get our temperature checked before entering a building.
Well, every single one of us has now had to do this at least a few times, so we know it’s possible. And if that’s possible, why not the rest of the Lockstep plan, which tells us that: “Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck, and even intensified.”
We can no longer afford to disbelieve the lengths to which the globalist elites, the unelected deep state, can and will go to seize total control over our global resources and people. They’ve already told us what the ultimate plan is — to use bioterrorism to take control of the world’s resources, wealth and people.
All we need to do is to believe it, and realize that the only thing giving them the power to impose their will is our fear. As long as we choose fear and demand our government keep us safe from pathogens, they have every chance of winning.

If you still need information to convince you not to take the covid vaccine here is another excellent video by Dr. Vernon Coleman. Why would anyone take this when the best results of the vaccine will only diminish the symptoms of Covid if you get it which already has a 99% recovery rate (or higher if you are younger). The makers of the vaccine do not even claim it will keep you from getting Covid! But the side effects from the vaccine may cause many lasting results and may include death! I saw they are beginning trials of the vaccine on children as young as 6 months even though there is a 99.99% chance they will not get Covid. What insanity! What parents would allow this?
Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis
Acute myocardial infarction (heart attack)
Pregnancy, Birth outcomes
Other acute demyelinating diseases
Non anaphylactic allergy reactions
Disseminated intravascular coagulation
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children
Vaccine enhanced disease
You aren’t necessarily going to get all of those or even any of them if you have the vaccine. But those are the possible side effects that the FDA has listed. They’re all unpleasant, most of them very serious and you can’t get more serious than death."
Over the past years I have been learning much about Integrated Healing. Our team has ministered healing to many people using some of the same methods with excellent freeing results that Diane discusses here in this informative article shared on The Elijah List. If you would like to talk with me about it, email me and we can discuss it at length. I would be glad to share some of my materials.
"...See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it..." (Revelation 3:8, NKJV)
Perhaps you recall the game show "Let's Make a Deal." You kind of have to be my vintage to remember it. There have been remakes of the show, but the original ran from 1963-1976. In most of the games, contestants had to decide whether to keep a cash amount or trade for what was behind door number 1, 2, or 3, without knowing what was behind that door.
The Lord has been speaking to me a lot about doors recently. Doors can represent decision, opportunity and expectation. I see 3 doors reflected in Scripture, and one in particular that stands open before us today.
Door Number 1
I call door number 1 "Sin," or "Death." This door is referenced in Genesis 4, with the context being that God did not approve of Cain's sacrifice.
One time when my youngest returned from Sunday school class, I asked him what he had learned. He replied, "God didn't like Cain's carrots." What a great (and cute) illustration. In Genesis 4:7 (NKJV), God said to Cain, "If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it."
We don't want what's behind door number 1—sin and its effects (Deuteronomy 28:15-68). That door is easy to eliminate.
Door Number 2
Door number 2 is what I call "Life." Behind this door lies not just salvation, but abundant life. Jesus said in John 10:10 (NKJV), "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
This promise of life and abundant life is prefaced by a reference to a door. In John 10:7 (NKJV) Jesus said, "...I am the door of the sheep." Again in John 10:9 (NKJV) He said, "I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture."
It was many years after becoming a Christian before I discovered that salvation was a process. I was saved at age 10, but by the time I was in my early 40s I was a miserable, hopeless wreck—suicidal even. What I didn't realize is that although a person's spirit is born again in an instant, we can carry around a lot of wounds and baggage, which until addressed, can prevent us from living an abundant life.
At that point, I discovered that there were key areas contained within Scripture which no one in my world had been talking about. They remind me of the natural law, or the principle of gravity. You might not know about gravity, might not understand how it works—you might not even believe in gravity—but if you step off a tall building, you will get hurt; you will be impacted because gravity doesn't care what you think.
These key areas are like that. Simply because they exist in Scripture, they have a certain effect on your life—whether you realize it or not.
4 Key Areas
The first area is ungodly beliefs, or mindsets. These are beliefs and attitudes that do not agree with God—how He reveals Himself through His Word, nature and character. These are beliefs we develop about ourselves, other people, the world around us, and God.
For example, you might think of yourself as a failure. Perhaps your parents told you this, and perhaps circumstances of life seemed to confirm it. Or let's say you're a woman whose father abandoned you as a young child, and later, your husband left you. You might conclude that all men can't be trusted. Concerning God, you might decide that God is dead—that's something I came to believe by my early 40s. This happened because, over time, I decided God didn't care for or about me—He never answered my prayers for healing from migraines, or for certain difficult relationships in my family to improve. (Photo via PickPik)
Romans 12:2 reveals that we are not to be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.
The second area relates to generational sin. There are tendencies or propensities toward certain negative or destructive behaviors that we can inherit from our ancestors. We might see cycles within families of anger, addiction, abuse, abandonment or low self-esteem. There can even be physical ailments. Personally, I suffered from terrible migraines and insomnia for many years—both of which plagued my mother.
Both Jesus and the disciples affirmed that consequences of generational sin can exist (John 9:1-3), and Ezra in Nehemiah 9:2 provides us with a model to remove those consequences. The accumulation of these sins continues until we repent for ourselves and on behalf of our forefathers (see also Exodus 20:5-6).
The third area is deliverance. This is the "pressure" we might feel from sources which we know are not God, to either get us to sin, or to keep us bound in limitations. Acts 10:38 tells us that Jesus was anointed by God with power and the Holy Spirit and that He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil. As I mentioned before, by the time in my early 40s, I was oppressed, repressed, and depressed—I was pressed! If you can relate, I have good news—Jesus died for that too.
The fourth area is soul/spirit hurts. These are the hurts (wounds) to the soul or spirit which are carried on the inside of a person. They are not physical; they cannot be seen. Their presence is revealed by their symptoms—the manifested evidence of unhealed emotions, behaviors, or thoughts. Psalm 147:3 reveals that He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds/sorrows (see also Luke 4:18-19).
Some sources of soul/spirit hurts are:
• death of a loved one
• abuse (physical, emotional, verbal, or sexual)
• trauma (accident, war, PTSD)
• catastrophic failure/loss
Some signs you might be affected include:
• being easily hurt/offended
• lack of joy/purpose/zest for life
• feeling stuck, like you'll never grow or move forward in life—or even like you're moving backward
I was definitely affected by source number 1, as my mom and two of my brothers were killed in a horrible accident when I was 17. It wasn't until I addressed this and allowed the Lord to begin the healing process that I began to move forward. The first thing the Lord did was to deliver me of extreme shyness and withdrawal. That happened literally overnight. Other things like healing from migraines and insomnia took longer—even years—before they were gone.
Here's what I did, and what you can do to begin the healing process:
1. Allow the memory to surface. Ask the Lord what memory you need to deal with; it may already be there in your mind.
2. Be honest with the Lord. What are you feeling? Are you feeling abandoned, angry, bitter or scared?
3. Ask for God's presence to invade the memory together with you.Invite Jesus into the memory.
When I did this, concerning my mom's accident, I pictured myself in my childhood home, all alone, at age 17. I saw myself picking up the phone. It was my dad telling me that there'd been a horrible accident. I saw myself sobbing, but I also saw Jesus this time. He was there comforting me—putting His arms around me and telling me He was sorry that this had happened, that it wasn't His plan.
Sometimes we might tell ourselves, "Well, God allowed it." But remember, it is the thief who comes to kill, steal and destroy—not God. When I see death, destruction and devastation I do not attribute it to God. From the time that Adam and Eve sinned, what God allows is for sin and the effects of sin to perpetuate. And until the time that that dirty old dog, satan, is bound in chains and thrown into the lake of fire, sin and its effects will continue to bear down on us.
"For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he give him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" (Luke 11:10-13, NKJV) (Photo via Piqsels)
It is the Holy Spirit who heals us on the inside—ask!
Door Number 3
"...I will give her her vineyards and make the Valley of Achor [troubling] to be for her a door of hope and expectation. And she shall sing there and respond as in the days of her youth and as at the time when she came up out of the land of Egypt." (Hosea 2:15, AMPC)
Door number 3 is the door of hope. You can't fully appreciate this door without understanding a bit of the backstory. Hosea, at God's request, had married a prostitute who worshiped idols. His marriage was a wreck and the nation of Israel was not much better off.
The Valley of Achor (or "Troubling") is referenced in Joshua. The children of Israel had had a tremendous victory over Jericho, but went on to suffer disaster at Ai. There, Achan sinned and hid the sin, which caused God to remove the blessing from over the nation. The place where Achan was stoned to remit the sin was called the Valley of Achor or Troubling.
In that place of overwhelming circumstance and trouble, God spoke to Hosea of hope, restoration and turnaround.
Points to Consider
The Lord might be trying to open a door of opportunity for you, but issues like unforgiveness and unhealed soul/spirit hurts may be hindering the blessing of God. Certain unresolved issues have to be addressed in order for the blessing to flow. Consider these suggestions:
1. Seek the Lord regarding your life. ASK! Spend time with Him and review the past. Is there anyone you need to forgive? Have you been hurt by someone or something and need to get healed from the pain?
2. Release the circumstances, disappointments and expectations that you felt went unmet by your heavenly Father.
3. Ask the Lord if there's anything to repent of—either for yourself, or on behalf of your family/ancestors.
4. Ask the Lord to reveal a new strategy for you to move forward.Do you need to find some new friends, formulate some new habits, or extend an olive branch to anyone from your past?
There stands before you an open door—His name is Jesus. Remember, in John 10:7 and 9 Jesus said, "I am the door." Whatever it is you need—the way, the path, the door is Jesus.
What's in a name? Everything! Salvation. Wholeness. Abundant life. Hope. Healing. Deliverance. Acts 4:12 (NKJV) says, "...[T]here is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
Through Jesus' name we receive salvation, and so much more... JESUS IS THE DOOR!

The Fall of the Cabal. Someone introduced me to this series a few weeks ago. I thought it was mind-expanding, thought-provoking and very well done! I highly recommend it!
And when you are through you will want to continue with The Sequel to the Fall of the Cabal. Janet Ossebaard has not yet published all of these but is trying to get one out every week of so. There are 10 in the series of 17 available as of this post.
