Real Spiritual Experiences

Christ Saved Me... Now What Do I Do?

 

This happened about a year ago. I was hiking in Sedona with a friend and later throughout the day I started getting an uneasy feeling. I wasn't sick, but I felt my spirit was being attacked. I never felt this way before. A kind of conviction I never knew possible. I dabbled in many different spiritual paths at that time. I had an addiction to going to psychics and healers. I hit a wall in life and couldn't find anything to pull me in the right direction so I could feel like myself again.

It was 30 degrees outside, and the hotel room wasn't that warm but I was burning up! Soon my friend heard voices and I felt something go into my stomach. I vomited for three hours and just felt this guilt and fear leaving me. I knew I had done wrong and sought the wrong sources for my problems. Suddenly I felt this infinite love and this voice that I've known my whole life tell me to stop worrying what happens here on Earth because it will soon pass away but its love for me will always stand.

This is no coincidence. I was staying at the Ransom Hotel. I looked at my devotional book for Jan. 21 and The message was "Purge Out the Old." The scripture wrote: "How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance--now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant." I can't believe this happened, BUT now... What do I do?

This happened during the well documented christian genocide (of 3.5 MILLION Armenians, Greeks and Assyrians), that the Turkish government committed, under the butcher prime minister MOUSTAFA KEMAL ATTATURK, and Sultan ABDUL HAMMID, between 1894 and 1923. I will write about how God supernaturally saved two greek girls, Themia Halo and Hariklea Poursanidou, when their innocent families, along with many others, were forced out of their houses at gunpoint, by Turkish soldiers, and put on a death-march, on a road to hell, through the deserts of Turkey-without any food or water, with only their clothes on their backs!...where millions died from thirst, hunger, and exposure, being torchered, brutalized and raped in front of their families, and left un-burried on the side of the road, to be eaten by vultures and dogs... GOD BLESS THE MEMORY OF THESE HEROES! Themia Halo, 10 at the time, had escaped the death march, and was kept as a servant by a cruel lady in south Turkey. She then ran away because of the abuse, and found herself on the outskirts of a large city, DIARBAKIR, in which she knew only one lady... But not her adress or name. Exhausted, Themia sat there, near a well, not knowing what to do!...and MIRACULOUSLY, out of no where, that lady came to her, and recognized her and took her to her home! Read her mind blowing story, in the best selling book: 'NOT EVEN MY NAME', by Thea Halo. The other girl, Hariklea, also escaped the death march. She was 6 years old! A family took her in for 2 months, in Kurdistan. One day, she went to the well, to give water to the cow, as usual, and MIRACULOUSLY found her mother at the well! LOL! This is recorded in a greek book, with refugee testimonies of survival, from that genocide. My friends, i've read so many incidents, that are BEYOND coinsidence, that prove that a higher power- God, Jesus, is at work in our lives! And if YOU can't see any miracles, well: Just take your hand off your eyes.LOLOL! Or email me, and i'll send you some awesome ones that happened to me, and friends and relatives. Stay safe. God bless!

Well, I would suggest: read the bible, and then start 'doing' the bible. Because Jesus said: 'he who DOES what I say, is the one who loves me...' Also you should pray, with a little fasting, so God can save you, guide you and protect you... With the help of His holy angels, along with all those people you pray for. 'The journey of a thousand miles, begins with one step'. Take each day at a time, knowing that today could very well be the last day of your life on this earth, (also called 'the valley of tears'). GOD BLESS!

To nickr2 I'm somewhere between agnostic or atheist I think you could only choose one religion to believe in right?

You do not choose. You are. Either you are an atheist and don't believe in god. Or you are an agnostic and believe in god and don't know what religion to be in.

I'm not sure what trials you have been in. But it makes me sad that you once believed in god and now you don't. I would suggest trying to make peace with whatever it is that made you stop believing. Remember, you are not perfect, and just because you don't feel something doesn't mean it isn't there.

Try to have faith brother.

Erin...Ask Him.

You have a very good signal! Only you two will know what to do. That's the very strong message you received, isn't it? You don't need anyone else invloved. Trust yourself...He's there.

Over 9300 it is very vast, and all encompassing, a message for a 1000 years. The Greatest Message ever given, given at this time in our collective evolution. The Message is pure and you can hear it... There are lots of free books...

Hi Erin-As a Christian, I will answer this from a Christian perspective. When we accept Christ, as you pointed out, there is that natural question, now what? One of the first things we are called to do, is to become disciples-students. We show that we love God, by serving Him and learning to listen to Him. To often we in the Christian faith overlook this, but in the Great Commission, it is what Jesus told us to become-disciples. We also begin to serve Him-this is where your personal calling comes in. When we accept Christ, are given gifts-I suggest, pray about your's, and try and find it. My advice to you would be practical, what are your interests? This can take years to work out-be patiant. My prayers are with you, and I ask God's continued blessing on your life in Christ.

When you asking what you should you do I can't tell you what exactly you should do
But I can tell you this one thing Mrs Erlin
God loves you, so He shares with you what He is thinking
You are the proof of His almighty and love
He brings you to a consciousness of your sin
For what you have done wrong, fix them
For what problems you might have solve them
Live under His Light
Praise and worship Jesus all the time
Jesus loves you

To answer your question..., look to God. God is your hope, your everlasting love, your guiding light. If you continue to believe in him and hold onto faith, then the answers you seek will be there. All you have to do is trust that God will lead the way and to never lead you astray.

Our bodies are not made to live with sins like fear, guilt and other bad energies. Jesus taught us to deny anything thought we have that makes our bodies feel bad even if we deserve to feel bad about our mistakes. We are all children, some of us are in older bodies than others. Keep your mind innocent just the same as when your body was young, don't worry. I found myself in a den of lions once but, my faith in the Universe kept the mouths of my devourers shut.

Hello Erin

Loved your reply and I firmly believe that faith is an individual thing, what is to one is not necessarily to another (they could be sitting in the same pew and have differing experiences listening to the same text).

Yeshua (pronounced ee-shoe-a) is not from futuristic sci-fi, it goes back to the days of Hebraic times (Ben just means "son of"). The interpretation of His name into English has taken not just the popular form we know of as Jesus, but also Joshua depending on whom was doing the interpretation. Mary was know as Mariam in the days of the Hebrews.

As for the images of the priests, I am glad you do not see that, it is as it should be. I had that image, and still do every time someone begins to quote "chapter and verse" because they were such a negative influence on me while I sat in the pews on Sunday mornings, thinking "Is this really the house of God, surely not?!?!"

That is why I began to search for Christ outside of the buildings and doctrine and was very surprised with what I found when he laid his hands upon my chest in a fit of absolute rage and anger, only to feel nothing but calm, love and serenity. I truly meant it when I typed you cannot look into the Shepherds eyes and not be changed forever and since then no written word has had the same meaning or impact.

You are backing your faith up with scripture, cool, I can understand that, relish in that blanket of security and let your faith bee seen by who you are towards life.

There is no greater example than the man whom walked amongst us 2000 years ago and gave of himself for the greater good of mankind. Look at his life and see where yours now goes in your new-found experience of Jesus.

I will continually to be "sorely misguided" in my love and faith of the greatest human that ever walked this planet and His even greater role now, for as the word comforts you, my personal experiences with Yeshua will comfort and guide me until the day...

May the love of Jesus forever more guide you and keep you

To David and Manashadow I do believe that he ransomed me - In fact, I know. I don't see any influence of pitiful priests when I read Manashadow's post. I think because he is telling me to back up my experience with scripture and make sure what another tells me aligns with the bible you viewing him as a bible thumper, but I don't believe that is the case here. Also, Yeshua Ben Joesph sounds a little sci-fiction to me and it doesn't resonate at all. Although I appreciate your opinion and your kind words. After all, this is an open forum.

Hello Manashadow 

My wonderful friend in God, thank you for your words to Erin. Your advice are notes of joy to those seeking a way through the mist. It is true I am "sorely misguided" however I do not speak for Christ and hopefully will not knowingly do so. I am just a normal, non-intellectual individual who has a devout love of Christ and the Heavenly Father. I do not have a knowledge base of educated wisdom behind me, only love for The Son Of Man

My wonderful friend you state that those who do not belong to the only acceptable form of belief in Christ are not true believers. You have passed judgement on every soul who is not part of your church or bible study group, or any church for that matter.

I lifted my head from those same pages a long time ago thinking that there is much more to Jesus than we are led to believe. After all the Son of the Father is much grander, wiser, greater and more loving than we see in the text as words cannot capture the complete essence of an individual in its' entirety.

So this is where I simply ask those who can see only the text to put down the words and truly open their eyes to what is right there in front of them, if they choose do so. The Father and His Son are there, always have been and always will be. Now look upon the word again and you will see a glory in those same words that you have never seen before, not a different interpretation, but seeing words through the eyes of one who now UNDERSTANDS the glory of what is right in front of them.

That previous paragraph  has met with much scorn from devotees of all faiths. Yet all it is intended to say is that perhaps there is much more beyond the bedrock foundation, that is written in the word of our Holy Books

I see Christians every day who tout the  bible and then show how  empty their faith is from their lack of actions towards their fellow man. I do not read the  Bible  as often as most here would like, however I will gladly let my faith be seen through the actions I undertake with my fellow  man.

What of the Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists are they not deserving of the love of the Father?

Just because one sees faith in a different way should they be sentenced to eternal darkness!?

My friend I see only the children of God here on earth and love each no differently regardless of faith, for as Christ treated every man or women as a brother or sister, regardless of faith or social standing, why should I strive to do nothing less. An example was set and I will do my best to follow!

Along those lines I guess I will have to face the fact when I stand to be judged, my absolute love of Jesus, his life and teachings, his compassion, his love of the criminal as well as the honest. All the work I gladly do with nothing but love in my heart and not a stitch of judgement what-so-ever in my being, will mean nothing in the end, for I have been told by a brother that I will be condemned because I do not follow HIS way of worship.

For me the Bomber is deserving of as much love and compassion as the victim, I will never condone the  acts of the bomber, however I have compassion for him/her as to what drove the individual to do such a thing.

So at the end of it all, I guess I will have to say to St. Peter, I am sorry all of my love for Yeshua and for God is of no consequence as I did not read the Bible or attend  church, so into damnation I must go!?!?!?

As I re-read your words I am filled with sadness. Instead of seeing an image of the loving person of God you are, all I see in front of me are the images of the Catholic Priests who would berate the parishioners on Sunday mornings. Sometimes it was for attendance, sometimes someone was late, but usually for not putting enough money on the collection plate.  I was usually left feeling sad and empty,  now I feel the same once again, sad...

Yes Jesus says he is the way to the Father, however does that mean the poor lady who gave of her last shekels at the Temple was not to be given the love of the  Father or the  Son simply because she didn't know he was standing there?

I share a love of Yeshua that goes beyond anything that has ever been written, or will ever be written in the future and  yet I am judged as a NON BELIEVER and not a true person of Christ.

For he took the emotions of vengeance and anger from my heart and soul. In doing so he filled  me with peace, love and an eternal gratitude that goes beyond our physical existence.  When you look into the eyes of the Shepherd and feel his touch, hear his words of peace and reconciliation. Somehow words on a page may never have the same meaning again. 

Whether he "ransomed" himself or  freely gave of himself, matters not to me.  I see and feel his unconditional love for man that he gave himself,  he knew who was going to betray him, he knew  how he was going to be betrayed and when. Knowing this he still willingly went with the soldiers when they came for him in the Garden. At the final moments, both he and his brother (on the Temple Mount decades later) showed their love through those words "...forgive them Father for they know not what they do..."

It is sad that today, with all our "wisdom" and education, we have not  been able to reach the levels of love and  compassion he showed on the Cross that day

My wonderful Friend, I can only pass along MY personal experiences to others as they affected me and me alone. They are based on personal experiences, not on doctrine or ritual, but solely unconditional love of my fellow man regardless of faith. If this is then being "sorely misguided" then I am guilty as charged,  please judge me accordingly...

Namaste to you and may the peace and love of Jesus and the Heavenly Father  continue to be with you and your family forever more

I must say, David was very kind to take the time to leave you a post, but he is sorely misguided. Christ did indeed say he was here to ransom us. It is recorded for us in the Gospel of Mark 10:45. Erin, I think it is wonderful that you have seen a need to turn from the wrong doing in your life. It is not an attitude of guilt that God is looking for, it is a willingness to admit that you have done wrong and can't make it right. Jesus offers the free gift of a personal relationship with God. You don't need to and in fact CAN'T earn it (Eph. 2:8, 9). You need only accept that only Jesus can and has died on the cross to pay for your sins and has risen from the dead. John 1:12 says that calling on his name is what makes you a child of God. THAT is the first step to take if you haven't done that already.

If you have made that step, even better. Try to find a community of believers in Christ and start to learn more about the bible and be built up by the community. I would suggest looking for a group that preaches salvation through faith in christ alone. No works-based salvation and no "other" or "several" ways to God. If they preach that, they're likely not really believers in Christ. Jesus said that he is THE way, THE truth, and THE life. NO ONE comes to the father except through HIM. -John 14:6 There is no room for syncretism when it comes to Jesus.

If you don't agree with this, that's fine. But please do not let anyone claim to know what Jesus said based on anything outside of the bible. They are very reliable eyewitness accounts and without them there is no account of what Jesus has said. Period. I have intellectual evidence and reasoning for this and my email is Wagner.731 [at] osu.edu if you would like to have more information. I sincerely hope that you will find not simply a power spiritual experience, but truth.

Thank you David for responding. Your love and light is much appreciated. And you are right about expecting something huge to change right after this. Sadly, many of us get disappointed and forget it's not just about peak experiences. Thank you for the reminder!

Much love,

Hello Erin

"... Now what do I do..."!?!?!?!?!?!?!

You live your life to the fullest it was intended to be every day of your existance here on earth, that is what you do!

The is no big earth shattering revelation here, you have now become more aware of what is within you, now let others see that spark by being the person you are meant to be... A being of love, a being of compassion, a child of God.

People are continually looking for something bigger and better to happen in their lives when this occurs and are usually quite discouraged IF nothing happens. It is not for us to say when anything changes, our souls determine that, for we are just the physical presence of that amazing creation of God. We experience life and all the related experiences spiritual, good,bad, indifferent on a timetable set by our Grander Selves.

Our interaction with the Christos energy and the love that is our eternal brethren Yeshua Ben Joesph, is something that is always there, we just have ignored it most of the time. You have now felt that love and power that he was, that he is, that he forever more will be.

He didn't "ransom" himself for us, those are words of man, not his. He showed Us a life that was and could still be today an example to follow for our day to day lives.

What should you do you ask, be that example, live your life in the awareness of his love, the knowledge of your own inner divinity and allow the beacon of God's Light that is you shine for all to see...

Namaste my wonderful friend

David
