Welcome to LiV.
LiV is a product of a carefully prepared range of materials that are selected to help you gain real spiritual freedom. Spiritual freedom gives you clarity and frees you from acts of a dark mind, confusion and utter foolishness, things that drive people to blindly follow human beliefs, rituals, traditions, religions, groups or practices that bring no spiritual benefit or freedom to the soul!
Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Romans 1:21(NLT)
All topics captured here are based on real life experiences in family circles, religious setups and within the socioeconomic environment.
These experiences helped in shaping my spiritual freedom that led to personal victories over habitual sins, cold love, worldliness, insecurity, fear of unknown, fear of man, spiritual fear, sorrows, the need to please other humans and the need to be accepted by a mob. These conditions vanished overnight once this freedom was attained.
LiV will explore with you some of these experiences that brought real freedom and fearless love for righteousness within my soul.
When you endeavor to pursue spiritual freedom, you will be forced to jump through a number of spiritual hurdles.
Beyond the first hurdle is a state where your spiritual sight becomes alive. You are then able to see deception a mile away and therefore capable of avoiding the wrong path of association and fellowship.
After the second hurdle there is a gain in the ability to shake off anything that causes spiritual oppression.
Spiritual oppression has human agents and is a factor of external control and calculated manipulative moves by other humans. These acts trigger and give birth to a deep-seated fear in the soul.
The fallen nature in us gets busy to workout a solution for our stressed soul. I can’t help but compare the scenario to a novice mucking around trying to solve a complex equation in algebra. We juggle every variable to get some peace while facing or waking up to a set of constant nightmares that we can’t wish away!
When you reach this stage, ‘you are toast’! So, in the privacy of your environment, make a U-turn, in other words, repent! Quietly resist reactions or solutions coming from your human nature. Seek peace with the Creator first, and fast. Do it without blaming anyone else. Live in this new found honesty. Honesty is a slippery road. You will fall many times. Please pick yourself up and keep walking! When you repeat it long enough, falsehoods living within you will give you up and drop off! Falsehoods or unclean spirits are defined in Ephesians 6:12(Living Bible Translation) as intelligent spiritual parasites living in a human spirit!
How will you know that evil previously alive in your spirit is gone? Once this happens, struggles in your spirit, normally manifested as fear, worry, stress or depression, will cease. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds … Philippians 4:7 (BSB). Remember that you can’t get real peace when one or more of these evil forces are still calling your spirit home! So long as they are in you, they will ride your soul like a horse to do things that destroy your peace, body, social life, family and finally your destiny! The good news is, when you realize and resist them by deliberately choosing to get rid of your inborn rebellion and endeavor to build a loving relationship with the Creator, then you will be past the third hurdle. Your spirit will finally be free to experience real rest. You will have achieved an extremely important level of spiritual milestone, a gain in divine peace in your soul. You will look back and smile in gratefulness for reaching this previously unattainable state in this jungle of a world full of dark spiritual entities lurking in every shadow of a human life!
A few years ago, I was privileged to have a beautiful (and I mean beautiful) spiritual experience. Unknown to me then, I needed to mature first in order to benefit from this experience. I did this by walking through the above spiritual hurdles. Though the walk was unexpected and painful, the outcome cemented in me a spiritual foundation that is not humanly possible. This is something that I cherish knowing that no dark force can ever take it away from me.
This spiritual awakening gave me determination in the face of mockery from deceived humans who think they are clever! They are the type who are in constant competition for greatness or recognition! These persons have unbelievably huge appetite for making a name for themselves! No number of earthly achievements can ever satisfy their need to be regarded as great! I once believed in these smooth talkers, visibly perishing mortals, slyly convincing and smiling vipers, wearing permanent mocking faces that exuded spiritual ugliness lit by seeds of ignorance from acquired stupidity! I have also seen these self-righteous crumble and their plastic grins replaced by unstoppable rivers of sorrow!
The following scriptures are an encouragement to those who are bullied and treated with mockery by these vipers. Proverbs 3:34 (NIV) He mocks proud mockers… and from John 8:32 (NIV) Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
It was refreshing when the truth began to dawn on me. This was not by brain knowledge but through my spirit. It became crystal clear that I am a spirit being living in a body and that my bondages were from the spiritual realm. I also learnt that my real strength in enjoying everyday life depended on regaining divine freedom to my soul. I was astonished when I found out that this freedom had already been robbed off me.
My writings are about a personal journey to spiritual freedom that leads to overcoming habitual sins and gaining the ability to see, expose and fight spiritual oppression!
I have included topics on some specific agents of evil that I came across and wrestled with such as the Jezebel spirit. This is a highly narcissistic spirit that specializes in control, manipulation, plotting, gossip and character assassination of its real or perceived ‘enemies’. This spirit mobilizes as many people as it can to join in its ‘fights’. It’s an unbelievably stubborn evil spirit, alive in a person that targets anybody who it thinks is a threat to its established power of control in a given environment. It operates through specific types of people. Through its host, the spirit harasses, bullies and intimidates to look powerful. It can criticize you for anything. It is petty in everything.
Many religious demagogues have in the past tried to paint from their ignorance, a picture of a Jezebel as a person of loose morals! This is a deceptive tip from the devil! Jezebels are not pushovers, they are legitimate or illegitimate leaders in their environment! A person with this spirit cannot submit to anything that does not massage their ego! Does that really describe a prostitute? If your answer is yes, then you need deliverance or an appointment with a psychiatrist!
In our vulnerable world, young women growing up in a hurtful environment are more susceptible to being infected by this spirit than young men! It chooses them, to be there ‘strongman’!
Though identified by many people as a female spirit, Jezebel is very much alive in some males. You can easily tell when its in a male because its pattern of attacks are similar to when its operating in a female!
Both male and female hosts of this spirit, have a higher than normal need to be appreciated and they suffer the same disasters of emotional cycles, characterized by an occasional anger outburst!
Please note, that not everyone who has an anger outburst has a Jezebel spirit!
Jezebel spirit is common in families, social groups, church groups, work places and in the political arena.
Many people who have this spirit are not even aware they have it. They are just amazed at the power they have over other humans! A Jezebel spirit in a person, toys around with other people who have a weaker spirit, and by a weaker spirit, I mean spiritually an unprotected human!
This spirit makes these people subordinates, then it takes away their spiritual freedom, triggering an oppressive environment for their souls. If it is a person of power who has this spirit, they are forced to run helter-skelter, tiptoeing and scared. Anyone with a keen eye will see the spiritual fear in them through their body language! You can even see it on TV and in photos! You cannot really blame them, since however educated or knowledgeable any carnal-mindset humans are, they are still much weaker than a spirit! When they are around a person driven by this spirit, their personal freedom is quickly eroded, followed by a loss of confidence in their abilities and creativity. It does not take long thereafter, before they become unconsciously defensive and apologetic to their ‘master’! Peace, harmony and freedom of expression or professionalism vanish from their immediate environment.
Believe you me, an experience with a Jezebel spirit is a horrible feeling! Something that you don’t forget for a long time!
Read more about this spirit in the book title displayed above!
I feel privileged to have gone through long painful moments of spiritual discovery. Moments when my only human help came from inspired materials that I read from honest persons who were in no doubt living right and were at peace with themselves and the Creator.
I therefore decided not to ever publish a spiritual crap but only what can bring life to others!
