Numerology, Gematria & Bible Codes: Being Stupid with Numbers

AUDIO VERSION: YouTube  Podbean

Here’s how it works in the world of numerology.  First, you pick a number—any number.  Then you randomly pluck some concept out of the air that you want to associate with that number.  For example, you might decide that the number 4 represents healing.  Once you accept your own baloney as truth, then you start peddling it to other people.  So when your friend Judy finds out that she has a terminal illness and she comes to you for help, you say something like, “Take heart, Judy.  I’m sure you’ll be healed.  Look: four ducks are swimming in the pond, and four is the number of healing.  Clearly those ducks are a sign from God telling you that He’s promising to give you total healing.”  This is the kind of moron you turn into when you go down the road of numerology.

In this post, you will learn everything you need to know about the human practice of verbally blessing and cursing other humans.

HOW HUMANS VIEW BLESSING & CURSING

There are two main ways that humans view blessing and cursing.  For non-serious users, the phrase “Bless you!” is the same as saying “Thank you!” or “I like you!” or “Wow, you seem like such a nice person that I hope things go well for you in the future.”  Alternately, to say “Curse you!” is a way of saying “I hate you!” or “You’re such a jerk!” or “I hope rotten things happen to you because you’ve upset me!”  For non-serious users, blessing and cursing people or objects is just a way of expressing personal joy or anger.

Seeking the Advice of Demons

Demons have a very different perspective of reality than you do. They know a lot of things that you don’t know. They’re able to do a lot of things that you can’t do. An understanding of these basic facts lures many people into trying to contact demons for advice in life. Even Christians get sucked into this, figuring that demons might prove easier to talk to than God. Let’s face it: God can be one aggravating conversation partner. He is notorious for going silent on you right when you really, really need an answer. And then of course there’s the issue of us not wanting to have to work at learning to recognize God’s leading in our lives—that causes us to miss out on many messages from Him. But biggest of all is our unwillingness to trust Him. After all, we humans are lazy. When we want guidance, we want it to come according to our schedule in a form that we choose. We don’t want to settle for silence. We don’t want to have to trust that God is handling things while He intentionally keeps us in the dark. When we reach out to a nonhuman being, we want that being to answer now. If God won’t cooperate, or if we don’t like what He has to say, then we start looking around for other options. This is when we start viewing demons as potential advisers in life. Read more of this post

Attracting Demons

What factors determine how attracted demons are to certain individuals? There are two reasons to ask this question. One is that you want to avoid being someone who demons are drawn to. The other reason is that you are seeking out their company. Both of these motivations are going to lead you in the wrong direction because your focus is wrong.

Demons do not run this universe; God does. So if you want to understand mechanics, you need to turn your focus onto God and off of created things. God controls everything that He creates. Some creatures—such as humans and demons—are given a measure of choice. But by the time God is limiting how many choices we have and deciding what those choices are, He is still controlling the situation.   Read more of this post
