    Location: Garden of Eden

    Thread Starter: DurbanDude

    There are few clues in the Bible concerning the location of the Garden of Eden. It's assumed to be the Middle East but the Bible doesn't actually say that. We know that it was possibly the highest point in the planet, because 4 rivers flowed out...

    What does the "law of Moses" consist of?

    Thread Starter: ObadiahHaidabo

    In Joshua 8:32, Joshua "wrote on stones a copy of the law of Moses". This was done in the "presence of the people of Israel". What exactly did Joshua write? i.e., can someone give me the range of verses? Is it Exodus 20 through Deuteronomy? Or...

    Thread Starter: DavidC

    John 14:2 My Father's Mansion has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I was going there to prepare a place for you? I heard a pastor talk about this scripture on the radio, he mentioned how "mansion" or even "house" was a...

    Martin Luther declared in the year 1520, that the papacy is the seat of the antichrist. Of course the popes didn't like that accusation, and the Jesuits' interpretation about the arrival of the antichrist shifted that event into the future, for to...

  • Two spirits, one space

    When I moved to this area of Oregon from Southern California, I was keenly aware of the different "spirits" that were here. People are friendly but also people are into a lot of weird occult, lifestyle, and earth energy practices. The tree huggers shop at the same organic grocery stores that the Buddists shop at and the Amazonian mystism followers ride their bicycles on the same path as cannabis growers. In the yearly city celebration parade a more eclectic group of folks you will not see, from full dress drum core kilt wearing pipers, to black hooded witchcraft coven members. Everybody is very open and accepting of everybody else..... but the spirits in some of these people are very NOT accepting of christs spirit.

    So one day.... after not being here too long, I felt like doing a little hiking and exploring...... so I hopped in the car and drove to an area just south of town....near the river and one of the larger hills where I hadn't explored much yet. I really enjoy getting out into nature and appreciating how wonderful God is in everything He has made and how perfectly it all fits together. So I came to a little dirt parking lot off the road and parked. No other cars were there which I kinda liked..... I got out and started walking..... just following the trail and looking at the wonderful forest growth. It's very special to me to be outside and all alone.... not even hearing the sounds of cars or people.....( course I had grown up in an L.A. beach town... so being somewhere where there are no people is magical !! )

    Well, after about a half and hour I see this guy on the path coming towards me. He's in his late 40's or early 50's maybe..... and he comes right up to me and says.....
    "Hey, do you know where there's a NUDE beach around here somewhere ?"
    Now, from the moment he spoke to me, I could feel something.....I don't know what it was....but something about the guy, was kinda weird or something. I could sense this.... like invisible spirit....or something just rising up out of him......like over his back and shoulders..... and felt like it was kind of reaching out at me. It was really oppressive and controlling ..... and dark.... and EVIL.
    So I say.... "No..... and then he asks me.....
    "What cha doin out here?" ..... and the feeling of this dark force is looming over me. He's like 5 or 6 feet away, but I'm repulsed ..... so I say.....
    "I'm just exploring. I like to get out in the wild cuz THE LORD always shows me something"

    And WOW !! ..... When I said..... THE LORD .... the guy just flew backwards almost 10 feet !! It was like somebody smacked him hard or somethin !
    I was stunned.... like..... what just happened? The guy was stunned too, and I distinctly remember a look of total confusion that came over his expression. He was kinda dazed after that, and just said...."Oh....and walked off down the trail. Meanwhile, I'm thinkin and talking to myself....(really to God) .... as I'm going back to find my car..... "What was that God? What just happened?
    And the Holy Spirit says to me......
    "You released the Name of God.... which is light and Holiness. Light and darkness cannot both occupy the same space"

    I was thinking about that one for days and days. I learned a lot about spirits that day.

      In 1980 I tried to explain that Bible concept to a "Christian" deliverance ministry in San Diego and was immediately banned from ever returning. Just a week before I was called a prophetess. I was still a babe in Christ and should not have been there in the first place. "Friends" introduced me to the so called deliverance ministry. I have had a Bible ministry now for 36 years.
      (John 1:1-5-Word of YHVH Bible) 1—In the beginning was the word, and the word was with YHVH Elohim, and the word was YHVH. 2—His word was in the beginning within YHVH. 3—All things were made by reason of YHVH and without YHVH was not anything made that was made. 4—In YHVH is his Spirit; and his Spirit is the light of men. 5—And the light of his Spirit shines in darkness; but the darkness does not understand.

      That's a good story.

      I imagine you had that effect because you spoke with conviction. I can imagine his surprise, out there looking for nudists (!?) and debauchery and instead finds someone communing with the glory of nature. It's kinda funny too. Good descriptions, thanks.

      Good story. I hope it's a true one. It probably is; it just is one of those miracles I don't hear much about nowadays.

      I completely understand the spiritual darkness you sensed. Its like a dark dreary cloud over certain people and places. Its just so strong and hard to ignore. I am so glad you shared this experience. I gotta wonder about what ever happened to the other guy? He had to of had a spark that day, unless he was just being used as some tool. Someone may have been praying for him and you were his sign..who knows? Well, God does. You may meet him again in Heaven someday.. I pray that is the case! Thanks for sharing!! There is truly power in His name!
