Darkness Attacks Light- Truth or Lie| Why You?

I was taught darkness (depression and dark entities) becomes present because you have inner darkness that attracted it. In this blog post, I will present why I question this tradition of thinking and explore if darkness attacks light.

Truth or Lie – Darkness Attacks Light

Darkness despises light because light reveals what cannot be detected in the dark. Darkness doesn’t despise itself (darkness). Darkness attacks light because light is the enemy of darkness. Now I have established why light is the opposing opponent of darkness, I wish to consider this further.

Each December day that passed, Darrell became more reclusive, sad, and depressed. I so disliked watching him give up, but he couldn't seem to help himself.

Give Up or Hope- Update About My Son

In the middle of December 2019, my son, Darrell’s emotional and mental struggles heightened. He so desires a normal life with a wife and family rather than living with severe Bipolar II disorder. He became discouraged watching his siblings raise and provide for families. Each December day that passed, Darrell seemed to be surrounded by a fog becoming more reclusive, sad, and depressed. I so disliked watching him give up, but he couldn’t seem to help himself. Nothing I said or encouraged him to do was helping either. I felt helpless as I watched his mental and emotional well-being decline.

Refusal to Give Up

It is difficult for me to write about his decline after several months of improvements, but I must honestly share this recent setback along with his past improvements I previously shared. The truth sets us free, not lies. I have faith there is purpose in this setback. I am either learning something to help me or others or both. I refuse to give up.

2019 Holidays- Challenging

Christmas Day, Darrell stayed in his room all day. He didn’t even come out to join us for dinner let alone to open Christmas gifts. He did finally decide to open his Christmas gifts three days after Christmas which lifted his spirits temporarily.

Give Up - We thought things would get better after Christmas passed, but the downward spiral continued into New Years'.  Then we thought it would improve after the New Year, but it didn't.

We thought things would get better after Christmas passed, but the downward spiral continued into New Years’. Then we thought it would improve after the New Year, but it didn’t. Darrell was not finding his way out this slump. I pleaded with Darrell not to give up, but he continued to be reclusive, very sad, depressed, grumpy, and difficult to live with.

Very Sick

One morning a few weeks into this downward spiral, Darrell became so distraught and mad that he broke his X-box and TV screen throwing them in the garbage. About a week later, the first of February 2020, this downward spiral finally culminated after six weeks of depression and sadness. He became suicidal. He was pale and could not speak or was speaking very slowly sometimes using “made up” words that made no sense. We took him to the brand new “access center” located in the hospital. The “access center” is equipped to help mental patients “access” treatment faster since the hospital ER generally has long wait times. A very helpful addition to a hospital facility!

I wasn’t surprised the doctor decided to admit him to the hospital. The staff psychiatrist prescribed several medications over Darrell’s nine-day stay in the hospital which was helpful. I was devasted and couldn’t understand after so many months of progression why this was happening. I still don’t understand why, but I have been able to find my way to accepting it with trust in God.

Others

Others have notified me of the desperation they feel from a heavy fog surrounding them too. I wrote a previous blog post about what a servant of Jesus Christ says this fog is if you would like to check it out.

Conclusion – Give Up or Hope

It is a big setback, but if I choose to give up hope, I cannot cope with this situation without hope so I am choosing to continue to hope.

It is a big setback, but if I choose to stop hoping, I cannot cope with this situation without hope so I choose to continue to hope. I believe when you ask God for something, there can be a period of waiting before an answer is granted. I think faith is having hope and perseverance during “this said time of waiting”. I also think it is likely this waiting period is a time for God to work with me so I can learn whatever is intended from this challenge. I wrote about the likelihood of being involved in choosing challenges in the premortal existence before coming to earth in a previous blog post if you would like to read it.

Darrell is stabilized and his well-being is improving. If you feel inclined, please pray for Darrell’s healing. Thank you. I would very much appreciate your prayers.

This guy diligently studies the scriptures and I think because he consistently pondered God's words for many years, he has been blessed to be in the presence of Jesus Christ numerous times.

In the Presence of Jesus Christ- True Servant Helper

About eight years ago, I started reading a blog I heard about. This guy diligently seeks truth and studies the scriptures and I think because he consistently pondered God’s words for many years, he has been blessed to be in the presence of Jesus Christ numerous times. He has learned amazing things directly from Jesus Christ and some of the knowledge he has received conversing with the Lord, he has been permitted to share with others. Presently, it isn’t easy finding those who speak truth, but repeatedly over the past eight years, I have clearly recognized this man, Denver Snuffer, speaks truth.

Easier to Understand Website

I highly recommend studying the following website that breaks down Snuffer’s teachings about Christ in an organized and easy-to-understand format. This website also offers you the option to ask questions if you would like.

Learn of Christ.org

After you have thoroughly studied this website, then I recommend studying Snuffer’s books and blog.

Been In the Presence of Jesus Christ

I can’t think of anyone I would rather learn from than someone who has been in the presence of Jesus Christ and has been taught directly by Him, other than learning directly from Christ himself.

Lies leading to depression, anxiety, loneliness, etc.

D. Snuffer was recently asked about depression, anxiety, loneliness, feelings of worthlessness, suicidal thoughts, and PTSD. Here is his reply:

There is a great fog of lies surrounding us continually. There is a vision that Enoch had, Moses restored, and is now part of the Old Covenants in Genesis. In that vision Satan had the whole world bound in a great chain, and he looked up at heaven and laughed. It is in OC Gen. 4:15: “And he beheld Satan, and he had a great chain in his hand, and he veiled the whole face of the earth with darkness; and he looked up and laughed, and his angels rejoiced.”

That great chain is not physical, but mental. The chain used by our common enemy is made of lies and deceit.

People are not depressed irrationally. They are responding in a normal way to an abnormal perception made of lies. They despair because they think there is reason to be despairing. But that is because they accept what the “world” is telling them about our present condition. Part of waking up is realizing that most of what is said, taught, claimed and broadcast in society is filled with lies about mankind’s condition, the state of society, and lies designed to inspire envy, jealousy and discouragement.

I have tried to awaken people to the reality that God lives and cares very much for those who respond to His voice. He intends to protect and care for His sheep. His commandments are calculated to free us from the imprisonment of worldliness and sin. He is trying to free us, not to impose upon us.

Depression, Denver Snuffer

I can feel this fog of lies and many of you can too.

Pay attention to the words of the few who have been in the presence of Jesus Christ

A true servant of God will always point and encourage you to make your own connection with God. A true servant of God will never handicap you by standing between you and your potential to connect to God’s healing power.

There is no man with the power to heal. All men have to borrow from Christ or whatever title you refer to as God. God is no respecter of persons. ALL of us have equal status, “borrowing from God” status. If you respond to God’s voice by following the promptings of the Holy Ghost, ALL can eventually tap into the power of God that heals.

Make sure to focus on Jesus Christ or the title you refer to as God.

Whatever church you are attending, ask yourself, "Is the focus on Jesus Christ or the title you refer to as God or is the focus on titles, status, or the education of men."  Many churches have become businesses competing to convince lay members of their superiority over other religions to further their worldly purposes.

If you are attending a church, ask yourself, “Is the focus on Jesus Christ or the title you refer to as God OR is the focus on titles, status, rituals, traditions, or the education of men?” Many churches have become businesses competing to convince lay members of their superiority over other religions to further their worldly purposes. If any of these signs are present wherever you worship, these are not characteristics of true servants of God.

I share a bit of my experience as I discovered my religion of 56 years is governed by deceit and lies if you would like to read it at the following link:

Under Disguise of Religion

I also wrote a blog post that includes a “New Age Movement” alert. Rather it is knowingly or unknowingly, energy workers, yoga classes, meditation sessions, etc. are sometimes being governed by the powers of the adversary/darkness and I desire for you to be aware of this problem. To be safe, we all must learn to discern between truth and lies. Like me, if you haven’t been taught this skill, it takes some practice. For me, studying the scriptures and searching for truth along with heartfelt prayer prevents me from being deceived by cunning lies most of the time.

Importance of truth/light/intelligence

The reason truth is so important is that truth/light/intelligence is what frees us from the chains of the adversary. Have you heard the saying, “The truth will set you free?” I wrote a previous blog post about this true statement if you would like to check it out. We have to be equipped with proper knowledge so we understand how to arm ourselves against the evil of “control” the adversary seeks.

Conclusion

The majority, if not all people, are exposed to lies mingled with truth but falsely represented as pure light/good through religion, energy work, yoga, acupuncture, acupressure, meditation, and spiritualism of all types making it a challenge (but not an impossibility) to discern between truth and lies.

As I began to offer a daily spiritual warfare prayer, I gradually learned about other healing prayers I felt the need to offer in behalf of my son that I would like to share in this blog post.

Daily Spiritual Warfare Prayers – Powerful and Effective

I am a strong believer in the power of prayer. Three years ago I discovered saying daily spiritual warfare prayers can heal and make a positive difference.

Bipolar II Disorder

My son, Darrell, has dealt with darkness (depression) for quite some time, but we didn’t know how serious it was until three years ago when we discovered Darrell was dealing with Bipolar II Disorder.

Where does darkness come from
