How we are blaspheming God with our daily language

Last Sunday I woke up under severe spiritual attack through physical oppression. It was very difficult for me to deal with because physical pain is a huge trigger for me. It takes me to a place of pain where I begin to see everything around me through a filter of pain. That is why when I have physical ailments I try to take them to the Lord Jesus Christ for discernment on what is happening to me. Nine times out of ten I need to renounce something I have done, allowed in or connected to, and the physical attack leaves me.

This attack was intense, but instead of allowing it to take me down a bad path I cried out to the Lord in earnest for help and healing. I tried repenting and renouncing for my usual things, such as witchcraft, astral travel, and being a portal for human spirits. None of it was helping relieve my symptoms and my desperation was great. Finally, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that it was my use of the phrases “oh my God”, “oh my Lord”, and “oh my Word” that was allowing this attack on me.

The Holy Spirit also revealed to me that those phrases, as well as other phrases such as “omg”, “oh my gosh” and “oh my goodness”, are grieving the Holy Spirit and allowing the enemy rights over me because I was blaspheming God. When we blaspheme God, the One and True Living God Yahweh, we are invoking the antichrist spirits of Baal, Baphomet and Beelzebub, cursing God’s name, and opening up portals inside of our bodies to human spirits and demonic entities.

I had no idea that saying some of these seemingly innocent phrases could possibly cause that much damage to myself and to God the Father. I could understand why “oh my God” was wrong, but “oh my Word”, “oh my gosh”, and “oh my goodness” are common Christianese phrases that are used daily by many people who love Jesus. However, Jesus Christ Himself is the Word of God, and “oh my Word, gosh, and goodness” are all euphemisms for the name of God.

We innocently think of these phrases as expressions of shock, but where did they originate from and how did they become so common? The phrase “oh my God” most likely came from prayers and supplications to God like this one that was sincere heartfelt cries to God. For the better part of the last two thousand years since Christ ascended back to heaven, it has been seen as a blasphemous act to use “God” in any other way. Yet somehow over the past few decades using God’s name in vain has become a popular form of expression of shock and frustration.

We need to also be aware of other common phrases we use in our everyday language that also seem innocent but are actually expletives. Phrases such as “for the love of God”, “Oh Jesus”, “oh golly”, “oh good Lord”, “for heaven’s sake”, “gee” or “jeez”, “for God’s sake”, and holy anything are all profanity that blasphemes God and grieves the Holy Spirit. The phrase “what the heck” is the same as “what the hell”, and “darn” is the same as “damn” and are also forms of profanity.

When I first became a Christian, six years ago, I was using Jesus Christ as a swear word. I fully repented of that when I gave my life to Christ, and the Holy Spirit did a massive work inside of me. I stopped cussing and using all foul language, and sought to please God with all of my heart and soul, including doing away with all terms that may offend God. However, as I worked through my inner healing and had to tap into the deepest levels of pain and anguish, I began to allow some of the hard work the Holy Spirit had done on me to fall away.

I am not ashamed of the negative changes that happened inside of me once I began inner healing. I had to dive into the most desperately sick and wicked parts of my soul in order to bring them healing. These fragmented alters began to override some of the basic behavior changes I had seen happen when I received the Holy Spirit, and I felt I no longer had control over my own life. This was exactly the point though, to understand and realize that while I believed I was fully in control, it was that level of denial that was actually bringing me more pain.

Once I began to tap into memories of abuse and betrayal I also had to deal with the fact that I believed Jesus Christ Himself was the sole cause and reason behind my abuse. I fell away from my daily Bible readings and even prayer. It was a difficult journey to get through even one day, and sometimes even one hour. But I have come down a long, arduous path that has brought me back to that place where I first began, and it was well worth the journey.

During this time I began to fall back into my old self, relying on cussing, and using “omg” and “oh my God” as daily phrases. I made excuses in my mind that because God’s name is not “God”, it was not wrong to say it. It didn’t help that I was surrounded by others who used God’s name in vain constantly, on television and in real life. It seemed so commonplace, that it only validated the excuses I made up to continue this sin.

Once I finally came back around to a place where pain was not my daily norm, I was able to receive the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and immediately renounced and repented, and surrendered all of my words and speech to the Lord Jesus Christ. Since then, I have almost completely stopped cussing and taking the Lord’s name in vain, and when I do, even if it is in my head, I immediately repent.

Jesus knows that my heart is for Him and that as I was trained from birth to become a soldier in the Antichrist End Times Army, that it would take time and a heart change for me to fully come back to Him with all of my heart and mind. He has waited patiently for me and treated me with the utmost loving compassion. I know there are many other Christians out there who are unaware, or who have made excuses to take the Lord’s name in vain, and this is your wake up call.

Jesus Christ came to this world to free us from our bondage to sin and the devil, but we must be willing to take that first step of humility towards Him. It takes a great deal of courage to admit you are sinning and blaspheming God, especially when you are a Christian. I believe most of us do not mean to intentionally blaspheme God with our words or behavior, but because we have been deceived by the spirits of sin, we ignore the truth.

Repentance and contrition are a normal part of the Christian walk, as we surrender our lives to Jesus. We must be daily reminded that we cannot do this life without Him, and begin to rejoice in our weakness as we allow the Holy Spirit to be our guide and mentor. Our Heavenly Father is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love for us, and because He is willing that none should perish, we can rest assured that our repentance will bring us back around to the righteousness we so desire.

Strange Cases of Mass Pet Vanishings

There has been plenty written on mysterious disappearances of human beings, and the cases seem to be countless. Yet, it is not always people who seem to vanish without a trace, and in some cases there have been rather enigmatic vanishings of pets that have gone on to be totally unexplained. Of course they don’t get the same sort of coverage or intense speculation as those of humans, but some of these cases seem to be truly strange in their own right and seem worth looking into. Here are a few of the unsolved mysteries of mass disappearances of pets, which remain to be solved and leave questions in their wakes.

One recent and rather spooky case of mass vanishings of pets began in 2013 in the U.S. state of Idaho. In a rural area of southern Idaho known as Magic Valley, which includes Twin Falls and nearby farming communities there was an intense spate of animal vanishings over a very short period. Over just a few months dozens of animals began disappearing in quick succession without explanation, to the point that authorities were baffled and one animal control center director said, “The dogs seem to vanish into thin air.” This was strange enough, but then some dead dogs started showing up under bizarre circumstances.

The carcasses were found dumped off the highway that runs through the region, and they all exhibited blunt head trauma indicative of what authorities deemed “ritual killings.” Some had been additionally shot in the head and in at least one case the animal was found at a place called the Devil’s Corral in Jerome County with a strange purple cloth draped over the body for reasons unknown. The bodies did not in any of the cases exhibit any sign of the dogs having been subjected to dog fighting, and it was all a mystery as to who would kill them or why, or even if the carcasses had anything to do with all of the missing pets at all. Most of the missing animals have not been found, and it is strange that there is absolutely no lead on so many missing, with Lisa Kauffman, Idaho director of the Humane Society, saying of it, “Animals go missing every day. What’s disturbing about this trend is that there is absolutely no trace of them.” Was this the work of cultists or something else? Why would they need so many dogs?

In 2015 there was another case from St. Lawrence County, in Northern New York state. Over just a few months 15 dogs suddenly went missing within a 26-mile radius area without a trace, sometimes right out of locked and fenced-in yards, and in one case a dog that had been chained just vanished, leaving both owners and police utterly perplexed. There were a few reports of unidentified people in dark clothing and driving a black car loitering about the areas where some of the animals disappeared, but other than that there has been no trace of where the animals have gone and no discernible motive for so many to be taken in such a short span of time. St. Lawrence County Animal Control Officer James McConkey said of the case:
"There’s something going on. Most dogs that disappear are found in a few hours or a day at most, but these dogs are never seen or heard from again. There have been a few where people had them in a fenced-in yard, with no way for the dog to get out, and they disappeared. In another, a dog was removed from its chain."
There are absolutely no leads, evidence, or hints as to what happened to these animals, and the best authorities can come up with is that it must be part of some sort of organized dog-theft ring. In 2015 there was also a strange series of vanishings in Reading, Pennsylvania, when between 50 and 60 small dogs went inexplicably missing over the course of less than a year. No suspects were ever found, and indeed no trace of the dogs was ever found, leading the main theory to be that they were stolen to be sold off. One resident said of this:
"Someone has to be taking these dogs. It’s just too many dogs to go missing in one month. In one month there was about 15 of them. If all of these dogs are missing and they are not going back to their rightful owners, and someone is stealing the dogs, they are breeding them."
It’s not only dogs that have been the subject of serial mass vanishings. In the city of Guelph, in southwestern Ontario, Canada, there was a sudden and massive disappearance of cats throughout the area in 2014 that has remained unexplained. Once again, over the course of just a few months, dozens of the animals went missing without a trace, and although it was reported that coyotes had been seen roaming around in the area the lack of any ravaged carcasses was seen as pointing more to a human culprit. There was also the fact that other small animals seemed to be thriving, as one resident said, “If there was coyotes marauding around in here you wouldn’t see as many rabbits or squirrels, and we are overrun with rabbits.” So is this some nefarious party abducting cats, and if so who and why?

There were three of the animals found in a dismembered state, and in one case a single cat’s head, just the head, was found, but it could not be determined if these incidents were caused by animals or done by human hands, nor what connection they had to the many other cat vanishings in the area. Local residents believed that someone was stealing the cats for some sinister reason, but there were no reports of anyone seeing someone actually snatch any of the animals, leading the Humane Society to speculate that it must have been the work of wild animals, but question marks have hung over the whole thing. In the meantime, the cat disappearances got so bad that a sign was actually posted reading, “This is not a safe neighbourhood for cats to be outside unattended.” Whatever was happening to these cats posed a big mystery in the area at the time, and one resident said, “Whether it is a person or an animal, no one is sure. But it is a concern to me that the cats are disappearing, like 30 of them.”

Oddly, like in many of these other cases, the disappearances seem to have stopped just as suddenly as they started, and that is one of the reasons such cases are so baffling. Who would move in to these areas to steal pets at such a rapid pace and why? Why would they just leave and why did they target these particular areas? What is going on here? Are these animal dealers, cultists, or something else? Who needs all of those animals and for what? As it stands no one knows. No one has been arrested in connection with any of these cases, and in most of these incidents there is no suspect or lead at all. All of these animals have just vanished into thin air. It may not seem like a big deal to some, but such mass pet vanishings are creepy nevertheless, and pose an odd mystery that no one has the answer to.
