Jesus casted the demons out

“I’m thinking of how my life is perfect in terms of the progression of things,” Tracey Flagler had confessed in her diary shortly before she took her life. “Fear and therapy got me in touch with my emotional guidance system even thought I could not apply it like you taught me, Abraham. And then came Seth, Ray, and Immanuel, and my heart totally opening, learning how to focus on choosing love, having a visceral, cellular experience for years, of being a blended being, and finding Immanuel stuff and Seth stuff and believing that I could create anything I want while wanting only joy along the way. Abraham, you are the best. I could learn to channel you really well in another five years, and find true love, money, joyful focusing, all the stuff we will finally get when we die because we want it, but I want it all now. Tell me, Abraham, can I get it now?”

 

YES O SHALOMA IF YOU FOCUS ON JOY CREATE THE RIGHT VIBRATIONAL FIELD YOU WILL BECOME SHALOMA MAGNETA AND ATTRACT THE THINGS YOU DESIRE.

 

“But why couldn’t my relationship with Peter just be easy? I focused on joy and I vibrated the best I could. I wanted it to be easy. I wanted a relationship where it is so natural and so right that we wouldn’t question it even if it is challenging and there is asking going on. Why couldn’t it be about fun and more fun, or joy and more joy? It should have been so easy. Men are so stupid! Why couldn’t he believe it was worth any challenge for the joy being together brings? Relationships are so stupid. I am so stupid. I want to be a vibrational match. But I don’t feel like my life counts like a life should. I feel like if I had a family I would feel secure like there was more of a reason to focus and feel joy. But my vibrations don’t work that way. Why? The Law of Attraction brings me stupid men. I am a stupid magnet, so stupid that I attract stupid ones. I get my hopes up for fun and joy, attract some stupid man, and then I get shot down because I’m stupid. I don’t know what it is in my vibration that says I need to be alone, that attracts men only to make them run away from me. Maybe it is just stupidity.”

 

THEY LEAVE ONLY BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE A POSITIVE FOCUS YOU LIKE THAT AND SO DO THEY AND LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE.

 

“I seem to attract the opposite of what I like.”

 

THERE IS NO EFFECT WITHOUT A CAUSE O DEAR ONE YOU UNCONSCIOUSLY WANT WHAT YOU CONSCIOUSLY THINK YOU DON’T WANT AND EVERYTHING FALLS INTO ITS PROPER PLACE BUT DO NOT BLAME YOURSELF O SHALOMA KNOW THIS YOU ARE EVOLVING AND BETTER IS COMING YOU ARE DOING AN EXCELLENT JOB EVOLVING TO THE LOWEST ENERGY STABILIZATION WHERE YOU CAN COMPLETELY RELAX AND ENJOY YOURELF REMEMBER THE SECRET YOU ARE IMMORTAL YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY CONTINUE TO USE THE LAW OF ATTRACTION TO PLAY THE FIELD AND ATTRACT A LOVER HE WILL BE WEALTHY AND YOU WILL BE RICH AND FAMOUS PEOPLE WILL LOVE YOU ON THE OPRAH SHOW REMEMBER O DEAR ONE YOU ARE AMAZING.

 

“But I want to be so okay that I would be fine if I never had a partner or lover. I would still feel satisfied and fulfilled without one. What’s the use of trying to attract what does not exist? I was lying in bed and was feeling how a relationship would help me to open up and relax and connect with the source. But no one is trying to see what an amazing person I am. They are all trying to look out for themselves and feel amazing themselves! So I am alone. When I put that into the context of eternity, I will never fit in: I will die without a mate and a house and a career. I will never become a famous channel and get on the Oprah show. I will be alone forever, with nothing to do. I will be dead.”

 

O DEAR ONE YOU CANNOT DIE YOU SHALL AT LEAST BE IN ETERNITY AND THAT IS ENOUGH BUT YOU CAN BE MORE THAN THAT YOU CAN BE MUCH MORE CONNECTED TO THE SOURCE IF YOU FOCUS ON JOY AND CONFIDENCE AND EAGERNESS AND WELLNESS USE YOUR VIBRATIONS TO CREATE A RELAXING MAGNETIC FIELD YOU CAN CREATE THAT STRUCTURE OF BEING SMOOTH OUT YOUR WAVES AND MAKE THEM LONGER AND CIRCLE THE EARTH YOUR LOVER WILL FIND YOUR HOLE AND FILL IT HE WILL SPEED TO YOU FROM AFAR YOU DEAR SHALOMA CAN BE SHALOMA MAGNETA YOU CAN CREATE A VIBRATONAL STRUCTURE OF JOY ANYTIME JUST RELAX INTO THAT STRUCTURE AND FEEL THE FLOW OF ENERGY LET JOY BE YOUR LOVER. JUST SAY YES TO LOVE AND LOVE YOURSELF AND YOU SHALL BE LOVED BECAUSE LOVE FEELS GOOD AND LOVE IS JOY AND YOUR MISSION O SHALOMA IS TO JOYOUSLY CHOOSE THOUGHTS WORDS ACTIONS THAT FEEL GOOD WHILE YOU CHOOSE THEM.

 

Of course I had heard of mediums before I retrieved and began reading Tracey Flagler’s diaries and notebooks shortly after she departed to the Other Side. I did not know that the process had been renamed “channeling”, nor did I know that mediating psychic entities is enormously popular nowadays, thanks in part to the revelations of such public figures as Oprah Winfrey, currently the high priestess of the New Age.

Oprah’s guest, Shirley MacLaine, whose looks I liked at the time and whose professional role-playing I enjoyed, grew rich and famous consorting with channelers. They put her into touch with such prehistoric spirits as Cro-Magnon warrior Ramtha, but I did not take her role as a professional spiritual advisor seriously enough to pay much attention to her bizarre performances in that capacity. MacLaine apparently hailed from the lost continent of Atlantis, went looking for flying saucers, and flew beyond the Moon in Peru: No doubt she took some pretty good trips, but quite a few people were tripping in those days and some of them had far more interesting things to say. She chanted “I am God, I am God, I am God” and then hawked the usual New Age message: Dead people are not really dead. Everyone creates her own truths, realities and fates. Terrible consequences should not be condemned no matter how evil they might seem to be, for everything has a purpose and good and evil are merely relative if they exist at all.

A Christian spiritist may rightfully claim to channel Jesus if he sticks to scripture. But the New Age message does not match the faith in the one and only God, who appeared as his one and only Son, who is definitely not merely any and every man or woman who chants “I am God” or “I am Jesus.” Such delusory beliefs as “I am Napoleon” or “I am Caesar” and so on are a sure sign of insanity.

Paranoia – delusions of persecution and grandeur – is indeed an ubiquitous symptom of our individualistic and discontented civilization, which has been uprooted from its traditional foundation in the spiritual monopoly established by Saul of Tarsus in the name of Jesus. He appeared in troubled times along with countless would-be messiahs, wandering faith healers, false prophets, pessimistic prognosticators, foolish soothsayers, vain self-exalters and the like. His purported mission was to restore order by establishing a universal religious monopoly under a divine monarch.

Jesus, the son of man, for what that’s worth, was purportedly the Son of God as well, the one and only channel for God. It was God who filled him with the Holy Ghost that served him as his ghostly Spirit Guide. Jesus channeled tradition biblical entities: for example, on one haunted day Moses and Elijah appeared in their glory and palavered with him. Jesus traversed the Holy Land, healing the sick and raising the dead; but above all he cast out the competition, the demons and unclean spirits who served God’s archangelic enemy, Satan, who was thrown out of heaven because he loved God so much that he hated man. Only those who cast out demons in Jesus’ name were sanctioned by God, for they were not against him. But he advised his disciples not to rejoice in the subjection of spirits in his name, but to rejoice when they were worthy of having their names recorded in heaven.

 One might say that only ministers who serve as mediums for Jesus and his heavenly father are true . And woe unto the hypocritical sophists and lawyers of the wicked generations who twist and spin the truth to exalt themselves and their wealthy clients; woe unto those who support the temples but have no love for the Lord. For those who exalt themselves shall be eventually humiliated and the lowly shall be raised high.

Jesus was no millionaire preacher of personal prosperity. Salvation seekers will be provided with as much as they need and nothing more: a loaf of bread, a cup of water, perchance some wine, and shelter for the night shall suffice, although man does not live by bread alone. Indeed, he urged his followers to abandon their selfish pursuits and to donate their goods to charity. Thus committed to charity, everything given shall be returned measure for measure, according to one’s own standard of measure. Jesus did not appear on this planet to sell success books and seminars and to get rich quick: He appeared as a sign of Jonah, to warn the people of the doom awaiting them if they did not repent of their selfish ways – of course Jesus was far more ready to give the warning than Jonah, who, after the Lord had mercy on the repentant evildoers, may have been sick and tired of being made a fool of; or perhaps he thought they should not have gotten off so easy and wanted no part in making things easy for them.

As for personal salvation, Jesus did not say that people should love themselves and declare themselves gods. Someone asked: What shall I do to have eternal life? “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,” Jesus declared, “and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself. Do this and you will live.”

It is no wonder that unwholesome spirits writhe, moan and groan at the mention of the name of Jesus the Christ to this very day: “You are the Son of God!” they screamed when he laid his hands on the sick to heal them, but the son of man rebuked them and shut them up instead of making them whole. Was it because they dared to make a god out of a man? That would be a capital crime, no doubt unforgivable if the healing were worked on the Sabbath.

The New Age is utterly anti-Christian, despite giving occasional lip service to Christ. The most devout adherents to diverse and sundry postmodern cults tend to tolerate any sort of cult but Judeo-Christianity – if there must be a Christ, let him be not a Jew but a Greek or a Hindu. Secular Christianity’s By-Goddery or bigotry, its often ruthless attempt to establish a monopoly over the souls of human beings and to distribute the absolute power worshipped is deeply resented. We cannot know if the world would have been better off without it. A postmodern reversion to hedonistic heathenism, pantheism, atheism and paganism proves nothing; it does not liberate humankind from its slavishness, and is likely to spurn the saints and elect a demonic man to madden and stampede the crowd over the cliff. Jews deny that Jesus is their expected Messiah, and the iconoclastic-minded among them eschew the worship of any man-god. Religion constitutes the worship of absolutely infinite power, which is unlimited by any form, including the mere image of the Lord. One may wonder how faith in such a god differs from nothing at all, or Nothing, but at least one can say that such a faith, unlimited by nature’s conditions, including one’s own faults, is ultimately conducive to liberty. It is this unconditional freedom from the world and its diverse material things and psychic entities that spiritual monopolists in truth sell. “Give me liberty or give me death,” finds unmitigated liberty in death and rebirth into eternity, where Nothing or God exists.

Tracey Flagler finally has the relaxation she craved, may she rest in peace. A psychic entity counseled her to throw down her life in return for glorious dominion over the world. She took the test: She took her life into her own hands and ended it, and now she is in the hands of her maker, so to speak, in timeless eternity.

Tracey Flagler appeared as a sign, as a red flag, and the ever so slight trace of her existence in space-time cannot be erased. The fact that she existed at all shall persevere forever, despite her death. Whether anyone shall remember her a generation hence remains to be seen. Since the day I found her bare body, so cold, pale and fair, stretched out on her bloodstained bed, I have been stirred to speak of her predestined plight and her fatal flight therefrom.
