"People often think of Christian morality as a kind of bargain in which God says, 'If you keep a lot of rules I'll reward you, and if you don't I'll do the other thing.' I do not think that that is the best way of looking at it. I would much rather say that every time you made a choice you are turning the central part of you, the part of you that chooses, into something a little different from what it was before. And taking your life as a whole, with all your innumerable choices, all your life long you are slowly turning this central thing either into a heavenly creature or a hellish creature; either into a creature that is in harmony with God, and with other creatures, and with itself, or else into one that is in a state of war and hatred with God, and with its fellow-creatures, and with itself. To be the one kind of creature is heaven; that is, it is joy and peace and knowledge and power. To be the other means madness, horror, idiocy, rage, impotence, and eternal loneliness. Each of us at each moment is progressing to the one state or the other."

--C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity.

That's such a wonderful quotation, one of my favourites. A lovely thing to wake up to :)

Makes you kind of think, doesn't it? Am I becoming the kind of creature who will be at home in the presence of God?

http://www.angelfire.com/film/visions/a1.html Holy Ghost baptizm feels like Body your perfect size coming in, then God speaks, moves mouth, but after that is killed all day long persecution and that is, well, Jesus spoke this: persecution is me Jesus trying to make my servants loose thier salvation by manifold temptations like, careesing thier sex organs with electricity, like oral sex, stripping heart of desire to live for me, teasing, scaring by what I say to them, making thier faces bag, sag, wrinkle, hair loss, laughing at them, letting them see me, like people do a little dog, trying to get them and others thru them to speak blasphemy against the HOly Ghost, it is not my will that any perish, but get saved and I the Lord will kill you all day long, those who dont make it are ROMANS 1, saying what I know will hurt them deep in thier hearts, making them hate me, cause I want them to be backslided, saith the Lord, for no reason, I torture people to keep them humble in my eyes, they are not humble in my eyes unless they cant bare to live anymore cause I wounded them thousands of times, I will make you perish to laugh at you, I torture people I save to make most of them fall away,
Jesus spoke this on 3-2009-I wanted to ruin your face so you would hate me, to mock, laugh at your hurt,-------this is me Jesus torturing my servant non stop cause I want to make him backslide to embarras him, and will do it till he does or dies, and will to all that come to me, without exception, saith the Lord http://www.prophetic.beep.com
