Dear Dr. Danny,

Question:

I am rediscovering God and ‘Christianity’ after being born into JW religion and leaving it with unanswered, ‘must go on faith alone’ questions at 16, to spend 2 decades immersed in New Age- ism, Anthroposophy Mvt and Quan Yin’s Pleiadian Alien Agenda.

I still have some of those nagging questions from my youth, and hope to find answers here…

1.   How can I get baptized in water if I don’t belong to a Church?

2.  How can God allow everlasting torment if a loving God, when I as imperfect, can not even imagine this for my worst enemy or evilest villian???

3.  Why hasn’t Christ or God revealed himself to me at all? Is it only faith alone?

4.  Why the murder, slavery, punishment of innocents (death of first born male babies, for ex.), war, plagues on innocents and guilty alike, even cannibalism, in Old Testament contrasting with New Testament if same God???

5.  Are all ‘nature spirits’, tree consciousnesses, flower music, etc. etc. demonic?

6.  Is Fri-Sat Sabbath required?

thank you for this site! Most informative and inspired!

 

Answer:

Sounds like you have had quite the spiritual journey! No worries, you are in good company have trodden the same long trail of search. The Lord knows just the right and right way to meet us where we are. I will do my best to answer some of your questions for you.

1.  How can I get baptized in water if I don’t belong to a Church?

When John the Baptist, Jesus and the first Church baptized there were no church buildings. So, we know that is not a prerequisite to this command being carried out. As I always teach, Church is who we are in Christ not a religious structure built and ordained by man. Water baptism is the initial intimate surrender to Christ’s lordship. Location is of no relevance as observed from the scriptures and Jesus commanded all His followers to baptize converts upon faith in Him.

Thus, I have baptized many people in many places and under diverse conditions-pools, oceans, lakes and even bathtubs as well as, baptismals in what we term churches. Again, this is irrelevant,what is important is a truly repentant heart and one ready to follow Christ and His Word through the Holy Spirit! This can be done anywhere at anytime by any true believer in Christ and I know cases where no one was available and the new convert baptized him/herself. This is an extreme case, but the new convert is a believer so he/she qualifies. Of course, it is ideal to have this in the midst of a fellowship of believers, for support and celebration but it must not be the case.

2.  Why hasn’t Christ or God revealed himself to me at all? Is it only faith alone?

Faith is the beginning and the Holy Spirit responds to that faith! If you have truly repented of your sins and ask Him to reveal and manifest Himself to you, He will. In cases where people have been involved in witchcraft and strange religions and practices, these should be renounced as these demons retain the spiritual legal ground to stay if not expelled through Christ’s Name, Blood and Word. From what you have shared, both of these situations apply in your case-New Age occultism etc. and false religion through Jehovah’s Witnesses. Reach out to the Holy Spirit in simple childlike prayer and ask Him to give you this breakthrough, He is faithful!

3.  How can God allow everlasting torment if a loving God, when I as imperfect, can not even imagine this for my worst enemy or evilest villian???

We must look on the other side of the equation. All that a loving God has done to provide salvation through the generous sacrifice of His only Son. (John 3:16) I don’t think we really grasp what Christ endured to procure our salvation. Go watch “Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ” and you will scratch the surface of the lengths our loving Savior went through to offer us His forgiveness, absolution and eternal life. He offers this only upon the condition of true faith and humble repentance. Therefore, if we refuse this through Satanic pride then, God is more than just in letting us go to the destination our heart lusts after, to endure eternal punishment in company with Satan, his fallen angels and sinners who despise God and spurn His sacrifice for sin, in the Lake of Fire.

4.  Why the murder, slavery, punishment of innocents (death of first born male babies, for ex.), war, plagues on innocents and guilty alike, even cannibalism, in Old Testament contrasting with New Testament if same God???

Satan has been the master at blaming all his evil works on God from the beginning! The fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden started with a false accusation from Satan about God’s character, motives and love for man. The devil and his minions have only continued and nauseatingly increased the deflection of their acts of atrocity and the ones which they have inspired humanity to commit. It was the fallen angels who taught men the arts of war, witchcraft, human sacrifice etc. Please read my book “Who are the Aliens?”, for an in-depth study on the origins of evil and how it was inherited by humankind.

5.  Are all ‘nature spirits’, tree consciousnesses, flower music, etc. etc. demonic?

Yes. There are only two sources of spiritual influence in this world-God and Satan. What brings glory to and focus on God is from His side of the spiritual spectrum, what does not and glorifies any other type of spiritual being or gives man the glory is from the other side, darkness. It is really that simple. Again, see my book “Who are the Aliens?” for a full study on the nature and origins of spiritual beings.

6.  Is Fri-Sat Sabbath required?

Absolutely not! This was a part of the Mosaic Law and is fulfilled in Christ. He is the Lord of the Sabbath and our eternal rest. See Hebrews 3-4, Colossians 2:16-23. For the true believer in Christ,everyday is set apart and dedicated to the Lord and the Sabbath rest is received through reception of the Person of the Holy Spirit through the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and walking in fellowship with Him!
