God Meth Demons
Genesis 1:26 - Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
I created this page in response to a few pages i've seen here based on the Spiritual Effects Of Using Meth. Most of the pages i've read are seriously out-dated. I can attest to this from personal experience. I started using Meth 5 years ago, and i've been clean for almost a year now. I'd like to share what i know with you. What i've seen and what i've experienced.
Most 'speed' drugs, such as amphetamines and cocaine put the user into a numb state. They tend to open the user to experiences they normally would not be subject to. This heightened state of awareness sometimes allows them to experience things that normal people wouldn't. These experiences often lead to paranoia ( a thought process believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of Irrational and delisional. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs concerning a perceived threat towards oneself.) There is a reason for this.
The battlefield or realm in which our spiritual warfare takes place is in the mind of every believer in Christ. And even those that don't believe in Him. I'll be honest, it's easier to party than it is to believe that you have a reason not to. We wrestle, or strive and struggle in our minds against world systems, the flesh or the carnal nature, and the devil. Pressure from life alone is enough to make us seek an alter-reality - one where we won't be punished. The mind encompasses our thoughts (imagination, reasoning, and intellect), as well as our emotions and will. In all of these aspects lie the very heart of an individual. By our thoughts and feelings we determine our will and purpose for our lives. But 'thinking' that there isn't a saviour won't protect you from being judged.
Drugs affect that reasoning. Let me ask you a simple question: Other than getting high.. what good has come from you getting high? Lost jobs? Children taken away? Criminal record? Jail time?
Satan is a major reason for people's suffering. The Bible tells of "that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan" (Revelation:20:2), who rules over mankind as the "prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience" (Ephesians:2:2). As "the god of this age" (2 Corinthians:4:4), Satan is the instigator of much of humanity's misery.
Now i'm going to tell you about me. No lies here, no transparencies. 5 years ago i started doing Meth. Pretty heavily. It got to the point that i started not feeling alone. Even though i was alone when i did it. I 'felt' that others were around me. Yet I was alone. They talked to me. they told me i was lost and that they owned me. They told me that HE (God) hated me because i betrayed him. I did Meth for 4 years. 4 Years of being kicked in the mouth by demons. 4 Years of being lied to. 4 Years of being made to think that i wasn't worthy of His Grace. One day i walked into a Church with them on my back. I'd been awake for 7 days. I went to the alter and prayed, and accepted Jesus and was baptized. I've been clean for a year now.
(Added 7.4.2011) - A lot of the people addicted to Meth are being made to believe that they cannot be redeemed. This is a Lie directly from Satan.(exerpt from http://www.gotquestions.org/God-forgive-big-sins.html) " There is no sin too big that God cannot forgive it. When Jesus died on the cross, He died to pay the penalty for all of the sins of the entire world (1 John 2:2). When a person places his faith in Jesus Christ for salvation, all of his sins are forgiven. That includes past, present, and future, big or small. Jesus died to pay the penalty for all of our sins, and once they are forgiven, they are all forgiven (Colossians1:14; Acts 10:43)". Don't allow Satan to beat you into submission. If he convinces you that you are damned and un-redeemable, and you accept it. Then you are in serious danger. However it's important to understand that forgiveness of sins requires repentance. Repenting from a sin means you stop doing it.
If you don't think drugs affect you, if you think you just do it for fun.. then you are being mislead. Satan is smarter than you or I. He is a master of his game. He knows what he's doing.
I'm not gonna beat my chest.. or pound your chest with the bible. If you are reading this then you obviously know you need Him.. Why else would you be curious? Be well and God Bless.
