Spiritually Spookey

When we come into the knowledge of the truth, it is very easy to get so wrapped up into the faith with a higher being that we cannot see, that some tend to go too far and into the dark side. Initially it doesn't seem so wrong, but all deceit starts off that way. Its the reason there is the phrase little white lies. That's like being a little pregnant. Even after the last tri-mester, is it still a little or are you then full fledged? Be as it may, those little trips to the dark side could be the very reason you can't quite figure when you allowed the enemy place (Ephesians 4:27 KJV) to steal, kill and destroy your stuff (John 10:10 NIV). Let's find it, shall we?

You see, it started with asking God to give us a sign for this and that. We do those things because we aren't use to walking by faith. But then when you put away with childish things (1 Corinthians 13:11 KJV) (and know that is a process as well), that sign thing is a thing of the past and should have died with the old stuff so again creating the new things that are much more applicable and profitable for your new life. Signs are suppose to be manifestations assuring you that God heard your prayers and He is at work completing what you asked. The truth of the matter is when Jesus said, "it is done" that meant a plethera of things including anything that you can ask or think. We just have to believe that's what it meant in order for it to be done. Its faith at work, not God at work. He did all He is going to do. Now we have to believe to receive it. That's faith (Hebrews 11:1 KJV).

Where the imp thought he could needle in is when God hears His children say the oddest things that have absolutely nothing to do with faith. You know:
Say you have been believing God for a new car. You are expecting this humongeous miracle and the very car you were hoping for (except for the color) drives past. What do you say? Is it something like, "there goes my car. That's God telling me that it is on its way." Well, the truth is, that's not your car and that's never been the way He tells anybody anything. Show me that in the Word. I will make a retraction! What that is, is superstition and it isn't the way; contrary to what Stevie Wonder sung.

Or how about when your right hand itches? Do you really think money is coming your way? And then left hand itches. Do you really think that means you are going to spend it all?

How about wearing something red to keep the ju-ju from you. I have no idea what ju-ju is but if you think about it long enough, guess what? Ju-ju, what ever it is, is coming for you with or without your red clothing item.

I spoke to a woman that said you aren't suppose to point at yourself when talking about someone else's ailment. I asked why and she said it could come on you. She then did something with her hand and started spitting on the table a few times. Whatever I did while having the conversation and gesturing with my hand could not come near to the filth she just did on the table. Spitting doesn't have any harm in ooooooh-oooooh world. But in my house if you spit on my table because of some weird ju-ju.... OMG, He is going to have to help you!

Oh there are scores more of crap that people have said from way, way back and they think once becoming a Christian, these are the things that are also spiritual that God would not call for us to get rid of. If you think that, you would be wrong. Of course you need to rid yourself from superstition. It is fear saying that faith doesn't work. If you aren't using the Word, then you aren't using faith. If you aren't using faith, then you are not pleasing to God (Hebrews 11:6 NIV). If you keep this up anyway even after you have been warned over and over will He say, "I know you not?"
