I'm sure you've heard the saying, 'misery loves company'. You
knew what was happening, i.e. under attack by the devil as we
Christians are especially now in these last days. There's
no doubt the devil has all his special forces out and KNOWS every
single child of God and where they are most likely to fall the
hardest. He hates to lose and stops at nothing! He's
downright mean and it's good when we can recognize him quickly!
Luther threw an inkwell at him so at least Satan knew he'd been
recognized. I find myself continually calling at him as it says
in James 4:7 ...."Resist the devil and he will flee from
you." You have already given yourself humbly to
preacher Charles Stanley once said (maybe more than once) that every
morning even before he gets up he goes over Eph 6:12-18 where it says
that "we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of
this world and against spiritual weaknesses in high places."
There you are!
Stanley went on in a demonstration how he puts on the whole armour of
God that he might be able to withstand the evil day and to stand.
Then there was loins girt about with truth and the breast-plate of
righteousness. Feet are to be shod with preparation of the
gospel of peace and taking the shield of faith to quench the fiery
darts of the wicked. He said put on the helmet of salvation and
take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying always
with prayer and supplications..
A lot to
remember every single morning before getting up but something to think
these are times of the END for Satan and he's ruthless with all
God's family here. I keep John Tng in my daily prayers since
he's bound to be a Prime Target for the devil! Be assured
of my prayers Suzi and I would be grateful for prayers as
is ON! Not for long though....We'll be home in
Heaven! And Satan Loses!

The last few days I've been marveling at the beauty of the Full Moon
and how any day could be 'the day'. On Weds night, my daughter and I
got to go to the premiere of the Disney movie "You Again"
with Betty White. We joked that seeing her in person was another check
mark on our 'bucket list'. I believe Jesus loves to give us even the
little trivial/mundane desires of our hearts. Me sharing a fun time
with my daughter, walking a red carpet and watching a movie with some
of the celebrities we like was just such a 'fun outing'. Driving back
from the LA area (we live just South of Fresno), in the middle of the
night, we were in awe at how bright it was outside, the moon was
I remind my family nearly everyday that 'it could be any day now'.
Why then am I asking for prayer?
My husband left to go to a work related 3 day weekend (he trains the
Sheriff's Explorer Post and they are having a competition). As soon as
he left, I felt a spirit of fear, foreboding (hearing noises around
the house, even had the dogs doing the 'someone is here' barking). As
bright as the moon had been, the yard was very dark...I kept thinking
my daughter was home, but it was always 'nothing'. *even now, as I
type this, the computer keeps freezing up*. I also came under a spirit
of 'vice', and can't get some images out of mind. I am praying, and
after reading the post about Communion, I think I am going to set
aside a special Prayer Time with my daughter tonight. I just felt a
weakness of Spirit, and was on edge, fearful and weak in so many ways
last night. I didn't want to be alone. My daughter had made plans with
friends to go out (they sit down at the all night Denny's and visit
over sodas and breakfast specials). When she came home to bring me
some soup (I was sick to my stomach all day, and had had 'night
terrors' earlier in the morning before finally waking up), I really
wanted her to stay home, but they were all going to go to a married
friends' house to play video games (she's 22, and this is how she
usually spends her 'out' time). I asked that she not be out too late,
since I was alone.
I don't like that as soon as I am 'on my own', I can fall so
quickly...preyed on by the enemy. After all these years, he still
knows how to 'push my buttons'.
So please friends, pray for me, my family and for all of us, I'm sure
I can't be the only one to feel this kind of attack. I think the enemy
knows all our weaknesses, and will go for the jugular on each of
Thank you, and hope to be meeting all of you soon.
