What just bit me? Part Three

"remember what you saw"... x

It was late one night and I had just returned home, after being in a motel. It would be the first time that I had slept in my own bed, in months.  As I layed in bed, my mind was racing.  I couldn't believe that I had survived all that had happened in the past 10 months.  I couldn't fall asleep, so I finally went out onto the couch and read for awhile.  I soon dozed off...

As I was asleep on the couch, I sensed someone standing over me.  I could feel his shadow and I could hear his breath.  My dogs began growling, I freaked out and opened my eyes.  At first I thought he was wearing a mask. I wanted to scream but I couldn't speak and I couldn't move.  My body felt as if it were completely paralyzed.  I was scared to death.

With the deepest voice that I have ever heard come out of anyone, he said, "You are not going to disrespect me through your music."  It was then that I realized, exactly WHO was in my face.  

I knew that if I could just say JESUS he would have to leave but I couldn't speak.  All I could do at that point was think His name... "Jesus, Jesus, J-E-S-U-S."  As soon as I thought his name the third time, I could feel this evil presence slowly disappear.  My heart was pounding so hard and I felt like I couldn't breathe.  There was this thick odor in the room, almost like a dark eerie fog.  I jumped up and turned the lights on. 

I had never been confronted with something so scary, in my entire life.  I wish I could find a picture to show you what I saw but all of the pictures of Satan don't even come close.  Even Freddy Kreuger looks like a nice cartoon character, compared to this dark (half human - half alligator), beast that appeared in front of my face.

I began to pray (or complain), and for the first time, I started feeling sorry for myself...

"What's going on... Why is he attacking me so much... He's already stolen everything I have... My dad almost died... I lost my venue and promotions business and all of the contracts with the bands... My bank account was wiped out... my identity was stolen... my friends stabbed me in the back and stole from me... I had to get rid of everything (including all my clothes), because of the mold in my home, I've been ill for months and I'm too weak to fight...

What is he talking about anyway... What music???"

I heard the sound of Angel's wings.

Let me rewind back to the 1980's again...

Like I had said in What just bit me? Part Two... many of the struggling musicians during that time, ate, stayed, played and lived in our home.  My parents never turned anyone away and they were always willing to help those in need.

The music during that time was Heaven and Hell.  The bands were BOLD and they had no problem singing about Heaven, Hell, The devil or God.  The churches were just as bold and they were out on the street corners preaching the gospel.

Throughout the 80's the music dominated the streets of LA and Hollywood felt ALIVE.  The musicians were on FIRE and they had so much PASSION.  It was do or die and you could hear, see, and feel the energy.  It was the oxygen that we needed to breathe and our hearts were pulsating through the music.

Throughout that time, my Bible was my most prized possession.  I never went anywhere without it.  It was just like a cell phone is for us today. Although, my Bible was covered with band flyers, stickers and pictures of musicians.  haha  I would take it to church with me, lay hands on it and pray for all of the bands.

I would also write a 'Hit List' a.k.a. 'Prayer list', with the musicians names on pieces of paper or napkins (I still do this... hehe), and pray over them.  The musicians would joke around and laugh about it but often times they would call me when they needed prayer.  ;)

Some people from church would freak out when they would see my Bible and I would always get the same reaction... "How dare you blasphemy God and His Holy Book."  I would always respond by saying, "The Rock Stars of today, will be the Preachers of tomorrow... Watch and See."

They all thought I was crazy!

So what exactly happened after the 80's?  I believe, what took place soon after was a flat out ASSAULT on God and Rock 'n' Roll music.  Something that had never happened before.  God was removed from our schools and the bands were labeled as glam/hair bands.  And the media told us that no one wanted to hear from either one of them.

What's been happening for years as a result of that, is that our kids are walking onto a battlefield blind-sided.  They have no idea who their opponent, Lucifer a.k.a. 'The Devil, Satan, or The Snake,' is.

Today, no one wants to talk about Jesus because they fear what people will think.  On the flip side, many of the churches nowadays won't even mention Satan or hell, for fear of losing members.  Which ultimately leaves the youth of today, weaponless.  They have never been taught or given any skills, on how to fight the enemy.  They are wandering around feeling hopeless and defeated.

On another note, the music has lost its creativity.  We were all created to WORSHIP and music is the KEY that takes us to that place of REVERENCE.  It brings us into the presence of God, it HEALS us and it ultimately unites us. Lucifer knows how POWERFUL music is, he was the Worship leader in Heaven.

I started to think about it...

Is it just a coincidence that several of the musicians from the 80's, are now speaking and singing about their love for Jesus?  Is it just a coincidence that the youth of today are searching for something real and listening to the musicians and the bands, from that era?  Why is that?  I believe it's because their souls are hungry for God!

But, I still couldn't figure out what any of this had to do with me, so I continued to ask God questions...

"Why has the attack from 'Lucifer and his Posse' been so severe in the past few years... How could I be disrespecting him through music... I'm not famous... I'm not the creator of the music...

"listen, don't ever stop praying for me"... x


Ding... Ding... Ding... I got it!

Music was created by GOD... for GOD.  Lucifer is NOT the Creator but he has always taken the credit for Rock music.  For years, Rock 'n' Roll has been referred to as, 'The Devil's Music', right?

The only way that I would be disrespecting him, is by EXPOSING him and GLORIFYING the ORIGINAL Creator.  Lucifer is just a CHEAP imitation and he can only copy, pervert or try to STOP what is already being created.

You SEE... everything happens in the SPIRITUAL realm or in Heaven first, before it TRANSPIRES into the natural realm or here on Earth.  Satan CANNOT hear or see into the spiritual realm, therefore he has NO IDEA what is going on or what God is up to.  He can only try to STOP it from happening.
He also knows that everything, from the beginning of time is SPOKEN into existence.  For example, God said, "Let there be light... and (then), there was light."  Even the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus was prophesied through a prophet FIRST, before it happened.  

This is why Satan has always attacked those that are SEEING in the Spirit and REVEALING what God is up to.  His goal is to SILENCE them and try to stop God's plan.  He knows that once people HEAR it, they begin to SEE it and when they SEE it, they will BELIEVE it.  "Faith comes by hearing, right?"

So, how am I disrespecting him through music?  What music is he trying so hard to STOP the world from hearing?

'WHO' is Satan so afraid of and threatened by that it would cause him to confront me... FACE to FACE?

I truly believe that it IS 'who' and what I've been SEEING, HEARING and SAYING over and over, for the past several years.    

I don't know?  Maybe I am crazy?  I guess we'll just have to Watch and See...

There's an Anthem in the Sky with a Choir of Angels.

It will make a mark on the planet
and like a strong wind 
it will change time.

This is a great story. The picture of your Bible totally rocks. I felt like I was back in the day on the streets of LA when I was reading this. If the devil is afraid of anyone I would have to agree it would be Axl Rose. He's probably the only one that would be bold enuff to put him in his place. Hell Yea! Rock and Roll.

Peace, Daniel

Dear Butterfly,

Sometimes it's hard to comment, the only thing I can do is thinking about what you write. Sometimes I'm a bit scared for you, but not in a bad way. "They all thought I was crazy!" - Yeah, I can see how people could feel confused, just like me sometimes. Because we all look at things with different eyes. You are not crazy.

And why I do not myself believe in demons (I think they are more like personifications that we make, when we encounter evil), I do believe in the same God - not the "bible god" or the "Christian-only god" or the "church god" - but a god who is bigger than those human limits. In this, I think our minds always connect. Jesus was great, because in him I can see how his God was really great - not a limited God.

So for some reason, these crazy dreams are among the most honest things on my reading list. Weird, yes. At odds with my thoughts in some ways, yes. I'm always a bit of a rationalist after all.

But we share our humanism. Your heart is where it should be. And I always agree with you on Rock stars being far more influential an powerful in a good way, than most preachers that I've ever heard. Many rock stars rock, because they know life is made to rock, to "kick ass". We are not created to be dogmatic and theological, but to be transformed into something like real people lovers.

I always love that in you. I'm not ashamed of saying that, even while some of my friends would perhaps think I'm not that rational after all. Me, the agnostic Christian, the rationalist, I want to be, above all, a 'humanist' too. It's all about people, not about theories. If we cannot love people, then even god cannot make sense anymore of mankind.

So we have to empathize. Engage. Just like rock stars to, when they scream out against the coldness of the human heart.

You are a real Love-girl in the most positive way.

And if you need some rational guy to talk to, I'll be there for you. But you always have to be a little crazy for me, because rationality can be terribly boring at times. Life is more than that. Life needs to be lived.

Much love to you,

This was a really interesting post. I reread and I thought what an interesting life you have had !! I agree with your comments on the music and our treatment of god!! I look forward to reading more of your thoughts. Keep well !!

Melissa Tandoc said...

This is so out of this world Lisa. It's the first time I've ever read of such prophecy and yet my heart tells me I could believe in this too.

I've always loved music but I have shunned certain ones that many have claimed to have blasphemed Jesus.

Yes, that included the ones in your images.

But what you wrote about something being Spoken and coming into existence is so true.

And what you wrote about Satan is scary... he is a stumbling block.

Thanks for this enlightenment... I have to read the other parts :)

@-S-: "now I know you better"...

"This melody inside of me, still searches for solution." ;) ;) ;)

@Jim: Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I truly appreciate it! I'm glad you agree, also! ;)

@melissa: Yes, Satan is a stumbling block. That's why God's word is so POWERFUL. Just like when Jesus was in the wilderness and Satan was trying to tempt him. Jesus fought the devil through the WORD.

Many people feel that way about music. But, only Jesus knows ones HEART. Just like Saul... remember he blasphemed God and persecuted and killed Christian's. But Jesus saw the PAUL inside the HEART of Saul, no matter what he was doing/saying on the outside.

This is what I hope, others will also SEE through my writing... the LOVE and COMPASSION of Jesus.

Thank you so much for reading again and for sharing my blog! I truly appreciate you!!! xo
