STEPHEN HAWKING AND EVIL

STEPHEN HAWKING AND EVIL

Stephen William Hawking: an English theoretical physicist and cosmologist at the University of Cambridge, who scored one of the highest possible score — 160 — on his Mensa IQ test, died recently on March 14, 2018.

 Hawking said he didn’t believe in a personal God and that God did not create the universe. He claimed that the laws of physics themselves brought the Universe into being, rather than God:

The science-religion debate has been going on since science was born, centuries ago. Until relatively recently, it seemed to have quietened down, but now Hawking and others have brought it back into the limelight.

We need to stop thinking therefore that science is the fount of all knowledge. It’s simply not. Science does not tell us how we ought to live—science isn’t ethics. Scientists and religious believers should keep out of each other’s territory. But this is naive. The science-religion relationship is a sure-fire source of publicity, which is always welcome when one has a book to sell.

No religion has ever been set out in terms of scientific statements. This is why scientists are able to mock the claims of religions but have never been able to deal a knock-out blow: in the end, a religious believer can always fall back on a faith that does not depend on verification.

Einstein claimed that the greatest mystery of the universe was that its most fundamental laws can be expressed in terms of beautiful mathematical equations. Einstein followed closely the views of the concept of God as an expression of the underlying unity of the universe, something so wondrous that it can command a spiritual awe.

Hawking’s view appears to be that the belief in a God-created universe can be supplanted by a belief in M-theory (a form of string theory). One problem with the theory is that it looks as though it will be extremely difficult to test, unless physicists can build a particle accelerator the size of a galaxy. Even if the experimenters find a way round this and M-theory passes all their tests, the reasons for the mathematical order at the heart of the universe’s order would still remain an unsolvable mystery.

NONSENSE REMAINS NONSENSE

Nonsense remains nonsense even when debated by world famous scientists

Let us look at the flaws in Hawking’s logic that claims “Because there is a law of gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.”This statement is so contradictory that it amounts to nonsense, according to John C. Lennox in his book, God and Stephen Hawking: Whose Design Is It Anyway?

STEPHEN HAWKING AND EVIL

Firstly, the law of gravity cannot exist if there is nothing. There is no gravity in nothing. If there is nothing, there are consequently, no laws. If there is nothing, there is no gravity, and therefore no law of gravity.

Secondly, there is a problem with the last part of the statement, that “…the universe will create itself…” This is a contradiction of massive proportions. Logic dictates that if we say X creates Y, then we presuppose X already exists and Y does not. However, if we state X creates X (itself, not another version of itself), then we must presuppose that X not only pre-exists, but also that it does not pre-exist.

STEPHEN HAWKING AND EVIL

Scientific discoveries  have caused some people to fall into the trap of believing that science has become a substitute for religion and that, as its great high priests, they can claim to have all the answers to all the questions.

Loud scientific atheism is NOT scientific at all. Many people do not realize that it is just a personal preference under the mask of science. The fact that Hawking is a genius is indisputable but he is human and he is victim to human ways of isolating himself in the power of his own arrogance.

HAS SCIENCE BURIED GOD?

STEPHEN HAWKING AND EVIL

Of course not! In our lifetime science has become more God friendly, I can think of the hot Big Bang theory that shows that the universe has a beginning (1965), and therefore requires a cause; and the Anthropic Principle (Brandon Carter in 1974), which shows that the universe is fine-tuned for life.

God is very much alive and kicking, and pops up in the most unusual places. Science can answer many questions about the physical world, but it has no answers about the spiritual world.

However, because of their reluctance to admit spiritual and philosophical values, some scientists do not appear to be aware of the nature of some of the questions of creativity.

The spiritual sophistication of musical, artistic, political, and scientific creativity far exceeds that of any primitive function programmed into the brain as a basic survival mechanism.

THE “WHY” QUESTION

Atheists complain that human beings are always asking “Why?” Might it not be that our minds have been programmed to ask “Why?” And if this is the case they might then ask who programmed the human computer. The “Why” question needs to be addressed.

Physicists cannot claim to answer the questions of why the universe exists and why we, human beings, are here to observe it, any more than molecular biologists can satisfactorily explain why, we sometimes listen to the voice of conscience and behave with altruism, compassion and generosity.

THE CLOSED MIND OF A DOGMATIC ATHEIST

As he got older, Stephen became more and more hardened in his atheism. As a result, Jane Hawking, wife of Stephen, who wrote the book, Music to Move the Stars, notes that although in the early days their arguments on religion ‘were playful and fairly light-hearted’, yet in later years they increasingly became more personal, divisive and hurtful. For example, Stephen was insulted by any mention of compassion;” he equated it with pity and religious sentimentality’—something for which he had contempt.”

STEPHEN HAWKING AND EVIL

THE ENIGMA OF EVIL

Jane continues her thoughts on the enigma of evil,”God could eliminate evil, but if He did, freedom of choice also would be eliminated. She stresses that most evil is often reducible ‘to human greed and selfishness”.

“However far-reaching our intelligent achievements and however advanced our knowledge of Creation, without faith and a sense of our own spirituality there is only isolation and despair, and the human race really becomes a lost cause.”

Some intellectuals, like Stephen, who are governed by rational thought, and cannot recognize reality when it stood, bared before them. They appeared to jump to conclusions, which distorted the truth to make it fit their preconceptions. It is almost as if they have blinders.

Revealing Stephen’s dark side, it had been Hawking’s ambition for some time. Two years ago, he admitted that he’d love to be a Bond villain. The devil has a role to play in this discussion.

THE UNINVITED EVIL GUEST

DOES THE DEVIL REALLY EXIST?

Michael O’Brian is a popular Christian novelist, who published many books. In his biography, “On the Edge of Infinity”, he described what happened to him in the middle of the night.

Michael awoke to a terrible feeling that there was an evil presence in his bedroom: a malevolent spirit who wanted to devour his soul. He was guilty of replacing his loving God with some sort of vague cosmic force: an ungodly spirit which is the worst kind. He felt like a defenseless prey in front of a large predator. He cried out in the depths of his soul,” GOD SAVE ME!” Instantly, the evil spirit backed off and a supernatural peace filled Michael—something that he had not felt in years.

He perceived divine grace at work. He now believed that God was real and that everything that the Church had taught him was reality—ultimate reality.

After a while, he stopped praying, thinking that now he could go back to sleep. Immediately, He felt the evil presence resume the attack with full force. Spontaneously, he began to pray the 23rd Psalm, The Lord is my Shepherd. Success! “By their fruits, you will know them.”                                                                                        Matthew 7: 20

This story reveals the real presence of evil spirits and the possibility that these spirits could be the cause of one’s depression or mental state. These evil spirits must be delivered away from depressed persons. These evil spirits must be delivered away.

THE DARK SIDE

Humans possess a spiritual sense and there is a spiritual realm.  A demon is considered a harmful spiritual entity, which may cause demonic possession or obsession. These demons were angels that turned to the dark side. God Himself tells how Lucifer turned evil:

“You were anointed as a guardian cherub,
Through your widespread trade
    you were filled with violence,
    and you sinned.
So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God,
    and I expelled you, guardian cherub,
    from among the fiery stones.                       Ezekiel 28:14, 16

Matthew, Mark and Luke record numerous examples of individuals who were either cruelly afflicted or possessed by demons (demon possession occurs when an evil spirit completely takes over a person’s mind). Christ expelled demons (often called “unclean spirits” in the Gospels) from many people. Demons are so real and so powerful that Jesus also taught us to pray on a daily basis for God to “deliver us from the evil one”.                                                      Matthew 6:13

We don’t have to scream and holler at the demons to remove them from someone who is influenced by evil spirits. One who has authority only has to speak the word. “With authority and power, He (Jesus) commands evil spirits and they come out.”           Luke 4:36

authority deliver spirits

Jesus spoke about demonic influences in many parts of the Bible:

  • He called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal.”             Luke 9:1-2
  • “Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.”                                                                                   Matthew 10:1
  • And He appointed apostles” to have power (authority) to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils.”                                            Mark 3:15
  • “In My name, they will cast out demons.”                 

 JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

DELIVER EVIL SPIRITS

More people are Coming into the Light.

“I love you.

When I was born there was darkness over the whole world. The people were under the sway of the evil one. Sin had entered into the world and in a way we can say that the earth was polluted by sin. I came as the light of the world, just as the light of the sun we see now, and I was given the task to drive the darkness away from the hearts of the people.

Through the shedding of My Blood, I accomplished this great work. I defeated Satan and his hordes.

For many people to believe and to pray is a struggle. Their faith is not strong with the result that they are filled with doubt. Often they will see that there is something in their life that is disconnected.

An example would be: a person believes in Me but does not follow My teachings as regards marriage. Sometimes these people go through years of living a double life.

It is true that many people have doubts at times but all should see that doubting is not the same as not believing.

My advice to these people is this: go and see someone who has great faith and speak to him or her about your problem. I will help you through that person who is close to Me.

There are, My people, priests and Christians everywhere who are close to Me. It is by talking to one of these about your doubt that they can be resolved.

If prayer is a problem, then examine your conscience and see why this is so. The problem is not out there but inside you. There is something in your way of life that blocks your relationship with Me.

Remove that blockage and prayer will be possible. Often the problem is an area of your life which is sinful and you have not repented of it.

After you have repented, you will open to Me and I will come and live in your heart. Then prayer will flow from your heart without hindrance. I love you.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:     

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

THE AMAZING MAGIC OF DELIVERANCE 2

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

BREAKING CURSES

CURSES BROKEN

CURSES BROKENThe bringing of an idol into a man’s house, even unwittingly, brings a curse into it and  can makes him liable. This can come in the form of disease. One Christian discovered that she could not sleep in one particular room of the house because of nightmare.

“Do not bring a detestable thing into your house or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction. Regard it as vile and utterly detest it, for it is set apart for destruction.”                                    Deuteronomy 7:26

Certain jewelery can bring curses to a home. The makers of this jewelery sometimes pray in order to place a spirit in those objects. Christians have reported cases of demonic invasion from dolls and puppets. Some hard rock or rap music have been known to cause problems: in one case these records stored under a bed brought about sexual lust in the same way as pornographic materials open the gates to sexual sins.

This doesn’t mean that you must destroy these dolls or puppets. It is enough to pray for deliverance over these objects if you know a Christian to pray who is without sin :

  • In the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, I pour the Blood of Jesus upon these objects.”
  • “I command any evil spirits to leave now from these objects and never return and go to the abyss in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.”
  • In the Name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, I revoke and break any curse attached to this item and I command evil spirits to leave now and go to the abyss and never return.

Similarly tattoos can be problematic and can be handled in the same way and the tattoo can be renounced. “‘Do not cut your bodies (in mourning) for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.”                                                                                             Leviticus 19:28

THE HAUNTED ROOM

CURSES BROKEN

Demons may persist in inhabiting a dwelling even after the practice of worship in them is discontinued. This could also have happened if a house has been build over an ancient unknown graveyard. We enlist the services of a Christian without sin and use the same prayer.

In addition, this Christian can also walk the perimeter of the property counter clock wise (to reach back in time) using the same prayer. A vial of holy oil* can be dabbed on the sides and tops of windows and doors to post an angel there while using the same prayer. The heaviness that one feels from these evil spirits will be lifted and there will be a feeling of lightness.

*My vial of holy oil came from a home where a Portuguese lady, Maureen Morolly, (1609 boul Sunnybrooke, Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, QC, H9B 1R4). It is Montreal’s present ongoing miracle and this is attracting bus loads of people. Everything of a spiritual nature drips of oil in her living room that was converted into a prayer room. A coffee table filled with small holy statues drip into an eaves trough along the table and into a large jug. Any spiritual pictures on the wall drip with oil continually, but not the secular diplomas. This oil comes directly from heaven!

HOLY SPIRIT TRANSFORMATION

“Live by following the Holy Spirit.”                               Galatians 5:16

“The true children of God are those who let God’s Holy Spirit lead them.”                                                                                    Romans 8:14

HOLY SPIRIT TRANSFORMATION

To simplify this, the Holy Spirit is the Presence of God in our lives, carrying on the work of Jesus. The Holy Spirit grants us all the fruits of the Spirit Galatians 5:22-23.(“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control”). If the disciple teaches, it is the Holy Spirit that teaches the disciple. Luke 12:12 (“For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”)

If the listener is convicted, it is because the Holy Spirit has penetrated. John 16:10 (“Concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see Me no longer”) If the listener is converted, it by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 8:11 (“He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”)

If the new believer matures, it is because the Holy Spirit makes him or her more competent. “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own.”                                            1 Corinthians 6:19

 “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. You know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”                                                                                                                                                          John 14:16-17

How have you seen the Holy Spirit at work in your own life?

HOW DO YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT?

HOLY SPIRIT TRANSFORMATION

“As I (Peter)began to speak, the Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning. Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.  Acts 11:15,16  There are four different ways, which can be used by the minister of baptism:

  1. Laying on of hands: “they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied. ” Acts19: 2-6
  2. Praying : “When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. ”                            Acts 8:15,16
  3. Speaking: “While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message.”                   Acts 10:44-45
  4. Breathing: Jesus commanded that the disciples receive the Holy Spirit, “And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.”                                            John 20:22

The most important part of the rite is that the person being baptized in the Holy Spirit be in acceptance:  ” I receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ.”

I am Strengthening You Today for Jesus’ Work.

“I bless you, My brother and sister. 

It is time to advance the work Jesus has given you. 

The darkness that covers so many people has to be lifted.  My Son, Jesus, must be the center of every person’s heart because He is the light that eradicates all darkness. 

Satan has ensnared so many people in all parts of the world and even those within the Church founded by My Son. Satan’s hold on them has to be broken. 

It is easy today to make the wrong choices and to be led astray. How important it is for youth to be nourished in their growing years with a good knowledge of the faith, to form good habits and to remain close to Me through prayer.

Some youth in their search for meaning, turn to alcohol and drugs and become enslaved by these powerful stimulants.  Others give vent to their instincts especially their sexual instincts and this could destroy their future.  The evil one will lead them that way if they allow him to do so.

While he seems to triumph with so many willing helpers in his rage against Me, Jesus, through My power and My guidance, is going to overthrow the kingdom of darkness and He is going to bring about a new beginning. 

I am strengthening you today for this work. 

Always remain united to Jesus, your Friend.  I bless you and all My children.”

Where’s God in My Loneliness?

Jesus-the only one who knows everything about you yet loves you perfectly-is the answer to your deepest need and the cure to your loneliness. “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”                                                                                               Psalm 23:4

So if your life is empty, fill it with Christ. You are never left alone when you are alone with God. “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4. Put the Kingdom of God first and all else will come. Cling to your life and you will lose it. Let the Spirit teach you to be satisfied with the fact that you have eternal life and will be with Jesus forever. The more you delight in God, the greater joy and satisfaction there is!

TO DELIVER EVIL SPIRITS 2

ARE DEMONS REAL?

authority deliver spirits

Is there is a spirit power behind evil in our world? Are we in a fight with spiritual wickedness? Some believe that demons and Satan do not exist; that they are just folklore.

THE DARK SIDE

Humans possess a spiritual sense and there is a spiritual realm.  A demon is considered a harmful spiritual entity, which may cause demonic possession. These demons were angels that turned to the dark side. God Himself tells how Lucifer turned evil:

“You were anointed as a guardian cherub,
Through your widespread trade
    you were filled with violence,
    and you sinned.
So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God,
    and I expelled you, guardian cherub,
    from among the fiery stones.                       Ezekiel 28:14, 16

Matthew, Mark and Luke record numerous examples of individuals who were either cruelly afflicted or possessed by demons (demon possession occurs when an evil spirit completely takes over a person’s mind). Christ expelled demons (often called “unclean spirits” in the Gospels) from many people. Demons are so real and so powerful that Jesus also taught us to pray on a daily basis for God to “deliver us from the evil one”.                                                      Matthew 6:13

We don’t have to scream and holler at the demons to remove them from someone who is influenced by evil spirits. One who has authority only has to speak the word. “With authority and power, He (Jesus) commands evil spirits and they come out.”           Luke 4:36

CONTEMPLATION AND SCRIPTURES 2

CONTEMPLATIONWe simply have to find a quiet place and a straight chair and sit in a relaxed position. We close our eyes and begin to repeat the name of Jesus in a seven word breath prayer that  you find meaningful until we are completely focused on Him. 

Then we surrender to Him and allow Him to do whatever He wishes. We simply absorb all His love, His peace and joy. We let Him be in charge for the duration of the prayer.

If a distraction comes, we gently return to repeating the name of Jesus until the distraction goes away, and continue our surrender to Him. We must not expect anything but accept whatever the Lord gives us. This is a prayer of the heart and Jesus will communicate in the center of our heart. Remember He is free, and be patient.

If you have not contemplated before, just read the book on contemplative prayer and begin contemplating for 10 minutes.  Once you are comfortable with 10 minutes, you can add a few more minutes until your prayer lasts 20 minutes. Contemplative prayer should last 20 to 30 minutes at a time.

Almost every person can contemplate and even children as young as 12 years of age can profitably contemplate for 10 or more minutes.

Remember that contemplative prayer is a gift from God. Prayer is very dear to Jesus. It makes our relationship with Him grow continuously.

DIVINE WILL OF GOD

DIVINE WILL OF GOD

 For the first time in 2000 years Jesus invites all of mankind – through his revelation to Luisa – to experience the ultimate state of union with God: “living in the Divine Will”. 

“My beloved (Luisa), the soul who lives in my Will rests, because the Divine Will does everything for her, and while It operates for her, I find the most beautiful rest in her. So, the Will of God is rest for the soul, and rest for God in the soul. While resting in my Will, the soul remains always attached to my mouth, and suckles divine life into oneself, making of it one’s  continuous food. The Will of God is the paradise of the soul on earth, and the soul who does the Will of God comes to form the paradise of God on earth. The Will of God is the only key that opens the treasures of the divine secrets, and the soul acquires such familiarity in the house of God as to dominate as if she were the owner.”                              July 3, 1906

DIVINE WILL

LUISA PICCARRETA, “The Little Daughter of the Divine Will”  (1865-1947) was selected by God to initiate the sanctity of the living toward His Will. As she grew older, the communications with Jesus became full-blown supernatural phenomena. Continue reading DIVINE WILL OF GOD

ADDICTION GRACEADDICTION RECOVERY

Addiction Recovery can take months and for some many years involving medication. There is a short cut that God provides in the form of Grace, which is a mysterious interweaving of divine grace and human willingness.

We may yearn to let go and let God,” but it usually doesn’t happen until we have exhausted our own efforts.

addiction grace

LOTS OF ADDICTIONS

Most people are addicted to something, be it a substance or one’s own self-concept. Anything that steals life from us and causes us to make illogical or hasty decisions is our addiction: anything we cling to instead of God. The object of the addiction, whether it is drugs or alcohol or sex are not the primary issue. Rather, it is becoming obsessed with them: a false sense of love. It includes many other areas: chocolate, food, Facebook, power, fame, pornography, even driving too fast, etc.

The truth is, we were never meant to be completely satisfied. Saint Augustine states “You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.” We give all our time and energy to the addiction, instead of love. We were created for love but we seek it apart from the Creator. Addiction, then, displaces and supplants God’s love as the source and object of our deepest true desire.

Addiction is a spiritual disease, a disease of the soul, an illness resulting from this same longing, frustrated desire, and deep dissatisfaction – which is ironically the necessary beginning of any spiritual path.” Continue reading HEALING THE ADDICTIVE BRAIN
