Narrow Gate – 2/11/2016

The reason I am writing this blog, and why it has taken me so long to do so, is because I have changed. I’ve struggled as to whether or not I should publicly share my transformation. Recently, I have reawakened to the power of Jesus Christ. What most people don’t know is that years ago I had an awakening, via Christ, which prompted the writing of the book. I guess it sort of says that in my bio, but I used the words spiritual experience, because I didn’t want to offend anyone or push away potential readers. Well, the time for political or religious correctness is over.

Yes, the book is just a story, but it is so much more than that if you read between the lines. To some folks I’m sure it seems anti-Christ. Heck, even the cover could be viewed as some kind of Illuminati symbolism. If you believe in any kind of conspiracy, here is what you already know, there is a war going on in this world. It is the war of good versus evil. The two sides have never been as opposed, as they are today, and they are both fighting to get what they feel is rightfully theirs…..your soul. Many may not believe this, but please read on.

Anyway you slice it the choice is yours. Anyway you slice it, as stated, the book is a story. It will offend some and delight others. The battle that took place in me, to write it, was between the light and the dark. It was as if two entities were housed inside of me. Some days the light (Jesus) would win for a page or two and some days the darkness (Satan) would prevail for a page or two. It was/is an enigma. However, the fight for me is finished, and I mean that literally. I have kicked out the evil with the power of the Holy Spirit. There will be no turning back. I disagree with many of the ideas that were put forth in the book. In fact, I can hardly believe I wrote them, but what is important is that it is over. The demon is gone. I am penning my testimony for a future book, but I’m not sure if it will ever make it to print. I hope so, but ultimately time will tell.

So would I still recommend that anyone read Moon Shadow and The Keeper of the Canines? Absolutely, but with eyes wide open and an understanding that there is a choice to be made. There are many good things in the novel that are formed from grace. As well as things that come from a darker aspect.

Do I realize that some of you will be put off by these words? As a former champion of the New Age movement, of course I do. Do I know that I may be ridiculed or persecuted for following Jesus Christ? Yes, but I don’t care. I’d rather dwell with peace in my heart and love for the Father, and His Son, than have a few years of fun satisfying my human desires living in the world. Am I the same person I was a year ago, ten years ago, twenty? No, and I have never felt happier and more loved than I do today walking with the Lord. Granted, I am far from perfect, nor do I claim that I will not fall into sin. I am learning The Word like a child eagerly learning to read for the very first time. I guess my hope is that by sharing something so personal it might prompt some of you to examine the way in which you live and to understand that it is never too late to change.

Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

    I’m glad you wrote the book as well, Kim. When I read it, it was obvious there was the “space between the lines” and filled with some very profound thought. No, I didn’t agree with all your thoughts….although I love animals and have cared for many [as a former small homesteader], and I believe all animals should be treated with kindness; never with cruelty…I am an omnivore and always will be. Dogs and cats eat meat; chickens are scavengers and they will certainly eat meat if they can get it. An aside: one of the worst things for dog and cat health is a diet of soy/corn etc.
    But back to the Light and the Darkness. We ALL have that duplicity in ourselves and yes, it is up to us which side we manifest….the side we “feed”, like that old Plains Indian tale goes.
    We do our best; what we feel in our heart of hearts is the right thing to do. God by any other name, whether it be Yahweh, the Goddess, the Great Manitou…is still the Creator. The Creator understands all languages and sees into every Heart. We, on the other hand, have to use our intuition…which is also a Gift from above.
    Here’s to you, Kim, for not being afraid to voice what you feel is right and how you’ve changed your views. Being “Politically Correct” is just another word for being a “chicken- ____” in my books. 😉

    It is exciting! I never quite understood the joy of those who have a relationship with our heavenly Father, until it happened to me. I am enjoying your book, too. I’ll plug it for you, so anyone reading these comments will be directed your way. It is titled, “The Speaking God: 366 Devotionals to Nourish Your Faith” by Denny Stevens. It’s an excellent way to embrace the teachings of the Bible.

    Thank you Bill. I appreciate you taking the time to comment. In some ways I have second guessed myself, because I do remember the battle inside of me as the novel was being written. With my newfound clarity I have a better understanding as to why certain things bothered me, and why I went ahead with them anyway. I always hoped people would read between the lines and it’s nice to hear that you did.

    I, for one, was seeing between the lines as I read the book. It would throw me off once in awhile, and I would backtrack a page or two and reread.

    I still think of it as an excellent book and am glad you wrote it.

    I am also very glad for you, for finding yourself physically and spiritually and standing up for who you believe you are, and what you think and believe.

    Very good Kim. Very good.

    Bill

    What an exciting declaration. I share your conviction to expose the truth that alone can change a heart and feeling compelled to make Him known. He is our reason for being. Why not shout it from the rooftops? “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us…” 1 John 3:1
