John 10 : 2 – 5
Authorized King James Version
Verse 2 But he that enters in by the Door is the Shepherd of the sheep
Verse 3 To Him/The Shepherd, the Porter Opens; and the sheep
Hear His Voice
And He Calls His Own Sheep By Name and Leads Them Out
Verse 4 and when He/The Shepherd puts forth His own sheep, He goes before them, and the sheep follow Him;
For they Know His Voice!
Verse 5 and a STRANGER WILL THEY NOT FOLLOW!
But WILL FLEE FROM him/the stranger’s Voice!
For they know Not the Voice of The Strangers!
John 12 : 28 – 30
Authorized King James Version
Verse 28 Father, Glorify Your Name, then came there a VOICE from Heaven saying,
I have both Glorified It and Will Glorify It/My Name Again!
Verse 29 The people ( at the feast ) thereof, that stood by and heard IT/THE VOICE said that it
An Angel spoke to Him!
Verse 30 Jesus answered and said,
This Voice came Not Because of Me, But for Your Sakes
These scriptures are the reason for this story.
First, for the last 5 or more years for every Sunday morning where ever I was, I would watched and still do today on DVD or YouTube the 3 hour movie
The Gospel of John
If you haven’t seen it, go to YouTube and type Visual Bible, there are many great movies there, your should watch them all. Also type in
The History of Christianity
The History of The King James Bible
And many others. There is so much good and historical movies to watch. Especially about how The Bible was translated from Hebrew, Greek and Latin into English and many other languages. Please check them all out, you will learn much. Also watch all the following movies,
Joshua at Jericho
The 10 Commandments
Peter and Paul
Books Of Acts
Decline of an Empire
The Book of Eli
Jesus Of Nazareth
The Passion of Christ
Watch, enjoy and learn. Watch over and over. Be a good disciple/student; look up words in the Dictionary
Now Back to the Garden Hose Story
Because I faithfully watched
The Gospel of John
Weekly for years and years, Satan was going to be allowed to SIFT me/Try me/Tempt me/Test me on my
Spiritual Understanding and Obedience to the scriptures in the Gospel of John ove being JESUS’S SHEEP by spiriutally hearing His Voice and FLEEING from a STRANGE SPIRITUAL VOICE!
So, the story begins on a Sunday afternoon after I had watched again
The Gospel of John
I was outside, watering and dark clouds were gathering to rain. So, I said or rather prayed silently
Father, It would be great if you would rain and water the yard as a blessing to me
Remember, I very rarely pray out loud and I do not JOURNAL. I do not want Satan to know what God says to me spiritually or what I ask for in my prayers. Satan will NEVER KNOW if I am
My Heart’s Desires
What I am praying to God About
No, I keep my prayers, petitions, tears, fears, joy, frustrations, etc. JUST between me and The Heavenly Father
I don’t even talk about going through something, a test, a battle or with others!
No, no human ever knows even when I am being
Once it is over, then I can talk about it or speak about it to others.
I decided years ago to
NEVER LET SATAN SEE ME SWEAT !
I never ask anyone but God, My Heavenly Father for strength to endure the test, the temptation the attack.
Only God The Most High, My Heavenly Father has what I spiritually need to get spiritually through and be Victorious for His Glory and Name Sake!
Since, I and The Most High God talk a lot daily and every night and some times all night long, therefore I do not need another human to spiritually encourage me, pray to God for mem to hear from God for me.
I also do NOT seek a Prophet for Words of God or What God is doing
This seeking is spiritual evidence that a believer does NOT have a
Close spiritual INTIMATE relationship with The Heavenly Father as that they could hear the Words or The Voice of God The Most High for THEMSELVES!
So, I seek His Words from His Bible, His Voice to me personally in the spirit through The Holy Spirit. You see, I always believed in The Son of God, Christ Jesus and His Heavenly Father and desired to see God’s Power of His Agape Love and that He IS REAL, even each and every day of my life.
So, the circumstances of this story were
1. Years of watching and hearing the Gospel of John
2. A Heart’s Desire for a Blessing from The Heavenly Father
3. A Dark, cloudy day, with rain coming soon
4. Satan desiring to spiritually ACCUSE me of something to God The Most High
5. God The Most High spiritually ALLOWING the Test/The Sifting/The Temptation/The Trail
So, after my silent prayer for rain to come as a blessing to me
A sound of Thunder Came!
Then Came The VOICE!!
Just like in the movie, The Gospel of John in the temple and even others heard the Thunder.
Some said it only sounded like Thunder, Others said, NO it was the Voice of An Angel and others said it Was The Voice of God Himself. Jesus said, that this Voice came NOT FOR HIS SAKE, but for theirs!
Now, remember I had heard this over and over again for years.
IF YOU WILL PUT DOWN THE GARDEN HOSE, I WILL WATER THE GARDEN!
So, desiring to be blessed
I put the Garden Hose down, and sat down on my screen porch to watch it rain and to receive my blessing!
AND I WAITED!
2 AND 1/2 HOURS
NO RAIN, NO BLESSINGS!!
I started thinking, there is something WRONG!
This WAS NOT LIKE GOD, The Most High!
So, after a while, I came to a SPIRIUTAL REALIZATION
The VOICE I heard right after the sound of the thunder, just like in the movie The Gospel of John which I had wanted/desired to be The Most High God as in the movie
WAS NOT GOD!!!!
IT WAS SATAN!!!
I listened to, obeyed ANOTHER VOICE than God’s The Most High!
I immediately confessed my SPIRIUTAL ERROR!
I spiritually took off to the Throne Room of God, knelt down, hung my head and asked Him for
Forgiveness of my sin of listening to and following ANOTHER VOICE.
During this time, 2 and 1/2 hours God was holding off Satan so I could have time to spiritually recover myself and figure out what was spiritually going on during this time.
You see, Satan had a PLAN AGAINST ME
He had been watching me for years as I watched faithfully the movie, The Gospel of John and he wanted to PROVE TO GOD THE MOST HIGH THAT I WAS NOT ONE OF HIS SPIRIUTAL SHEEP!
Remember, the scriptures of
John 10 : 2 – 5
Authorized King James Version
Verse 2 But he that enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep/that be me.
Verse 3 To him/the Shepherd, the porter opens; and the sheep/that be me
Spiritually Hear His Voice
And He Calls His Own Sheep/That Be Me by Name, and Leads Them/That Be Me out
Verse 4 and when He/The Shepherd puts forth His Own Sheep/That be me, He goes before them/That be me, and the SHEEP/THAT BE ME Follow Him
For They/The Sheep/That Be Me KNOW HIS SPIRIUTAL VOICE!
Verse 5 and a SPIRIUTAL STRANGER will they the sheep/that be me WILL NOT FOLLOW!
But instead WILL FLEE/RUN/NOT OBEY/NOT LISTEN TO/ NOT FOLLOW HIM/THE SPIRIUAL STRANGER’S VOICE, Why? For They/the sheep/that be me KNOW NOT THE VOICE OF THE SPIRIUTAL STRANGER!
Satan’s spiritual plan for me also included a CLAP OF THUNDER, Then a VOICE would speak to me just like in the scriptures of
John 12: 28 – 30
Authorized King James Version
Verse 28 Father, Glorify Your Name
Then came there a VOICE from Heaven saying,
I Have Both Glorified It/My Name, and Will Glorify It/My Name Again!
Verse 29 ( The people at the feast/Me at my house ) thereof, that stood by and HEARD IT ( The Voice From Heaven/From out of the Realm of The Spirit ), and said that it sounded like thunder: others said, An Angel spoke to him/to me
Verse 30 And Jesus answered and said,
The Voice came Not Because of Me, But FOR YOUR SAKES!
Because Satan knew that if
One of God’s spiritual children/sheep/people followed/listen to/obey ANOTHER VOICE besides His, they/that be me WOULD SURELY DIE/be spiritually SEPARATED from The Heavenly Father and would be spiritually cut off from the spiritual INTIMACY of the spiritual RELATIONSHIP/PARTNERSHIP between the Heavenly Father and themselves and would spiritually NO LONGER BE the spiritual IMAGE AND LIKENESS of The Heavenly Father, NO LONGER A SON OF GOD!
The Loss of The Kingdom of Heaven of Love, Joy and Peace
In this spiritual condition for LISTENING TO AND FOLLOWING ANOHER VOICE, I would cause even the Earth itself both the planet and all that is in it and even humanity to remain under the curse of Satan and remain in their pains and groans of be subjected to Satan’s Dark and Evil Heart of Hate for all that Belongs to a Loving Heavenly Father, The Great Creator of Life.
Then Satan knew my spiritual heart would be filled with sorrow for this result of A SHEEP NO LONGER BEING A SHEEP OF GOD, FOLLOWING ONLY HIS VOICE, BEING PROTECTED AND A INTIMATE PARTNER WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT HIMSELF.
This spiritual test/sifting by Satan was being allowed to Test me and Prove me. I had to learn the difference between Voices and I had to learn about a spiritual test I had forgotten to apply and would need to learn to apply always.
Satan knew if He could get me to fail this test he would get me, Deborah into a spiritual position that most of humanity were still in.
A spiritual man who was no longer in connection with or hearing the Intimate Voice of Their Heavenly Father, but now cursed and bringing curses upon others and even the earth itself. A spiritual man no longer supported by and in partnership with God but instead having to work hard by the sweat of his own work and hands, No Help From on High!
A spiritual man Fearful of the True Voice of The Heavenly Father, and only knowing and obey the Voice of Satan. For The Spiritual man would be punished and live in fear of death if he did not obey this Voice of Satan.
So, Satan had gotten permission to SIFT ME. TEST ME, PROVE ME, TRY ME so he could win a court case in the Court Room of The Judge of The Universe against me. The Judge had given permission. Of, course all this was unknown to me down here on planet earth.
Of course I had no idea that by FAITHFULLY WATCHING the Gospel of John would or could bring about
Such a Test! Such Sifting!!
BUT IT DID!!
So, be on guard because anyone of The Heavenly Father’s children can also be tested/sifted/tried in such a manner with the Most High’s permission.
Maybe your Test/Shifting/Trials/Temptations will come because of the
Words you say
The Songs you sing
The Words You Read In The Bible
Scriptures You Memorize
The Preaching You have Heard
Bible Studies You Take
Books you read
The Tests Will Come, Sifting Comes, Trials of one’s Faith Are provided, Who One Listens to and Follows Is Tested
Tests, Trials, Sifting, Attacks will come and I hope everyone passes.
This story/testing ended when Satan went to the
Courtroom of The Judge of The Universe/The Most High God
To bring his spiritual ACCUSATIONS against me for FOLLOWING/LISTENING TO AND OBEYING another’s VOICE besides The Good Shepherd and boy was he shocked.
No spiritual EVIDENCE Existed of my DISOBEDIENCE of Following ANOTHER’S Voice of Putting The Garden Hose Down!
For God The Most High had spiritually given me time to SPIRITUALLY RECOVER MYSELF and come to the spiritual Revelations of The Test!
And To confess my SPIRIUTAL ERROR of
Listening to/Following After/Obeying Another Voice besides His/The Most High God’s
So, under the Blood of Jesus and into the Sea of Forgetfulness the SPIRITUAL EVIDENCE Went!
But this story also includes another SPIRIURAL FAILURE of mine.
I didn’t spiritually TEST the VOICE to see if it was of God or Another!
I didn’t APPLY the SPIRIUTAL TEST of
1 John 4 : 1 – 3
Authorized King James Version
Verse 1 Beloved BELIVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT, but TRY/TEST the Spirits WHETHER they ARE OF GOD; because many false prophets are gone out into the world
Verse 2 Hereby now you the SPIRIT OF GOD, every spirit that CONFESS that Jesus Christ is come in the Flesh is of God
Verse 3 And Every Spirit that CONFESSES NOT that Jesus Christ is come in the Flesh is NOT OF GOD!
And THIS is that Spirit of ANIT-CHRIST,
Whereof you have heard that if should come and even now already IS IT/This Spirit of ANTI-CHRIST in the world.
Because I didn’t TRY/TEST the SPIRIUTAL VOICE that told me to put the garden hose down and JUST BELEIVED/ASSUMED/TRUSTED that this was the VOICE of God Himself because I wanted the VOICE to be like the VOICE in the movie of The Gospel of John when the Greeks came to Jesus in the Temple. I wanted/Desired so much to hear God’s Voice in the Thunder and I wanted to a Blessing From God, I FAILED TO TEST/TO TRY THE VOICE THAT WAS SPEAKING TO ME!
So, Satan used the example/pattern from the movie to speak to me and was hoping I would not
Try The Voice
According to 1 John 4 : 1 – 3
And I Didn’t!!
So, I had FAILED THE TEST!!
But in The Heavenly Father’s Agape Love for me and His spiritual Knowledge of Satan’s plans, god The Most High held Satan off from the Throne Room of Judgment, The Judgment Hall in The Kingdom of Heaven Until I could spiritually figure out what had happened, and get to His Throne Room and humble myself and confess my Spiritual Error, my Spiritual Disobedience by Following/Obeying ANOTHER’S /a Stranger’s Voice/Request/Instructions/Guidance/Counsel/Commands in order to get a personal Blessing.
So, the next time, which was just a few days later, once again I was outside watering and a VOICE spoke to me,
But This Time, I remembered to
TRY THE SPIRIT According to the spiritual test I had FAILED to do before.
The Voice of The Spirit passed for it was The Holy Spirit Of God The Most High Himself.
I spiritually learned that NONE of God’s Angels or His Holy Spirit GET OFFENDED or MAD at me for requiring them to
Take The Spiritual Test!
In fact, they are happy to Comply for they are Responsible for TEACHING ME to be spiritually Careful and Guarded about
Because I hear spiritually many spiritual Voices through the Spiritual Gift of DISCERNING OF SPIRITS and I am very spiritually close/intimate and ministering in total spiritual oneness with God The Most High in the spirit realm on the earth in the Kingdom Of Darkness to spiritually reach precious spiritual ones who are still trapped in Satan’s spiritual grip of the fear of death, of ignorance and abuse.
I am spiritually tested and tried often and very powerfully to being the SPIRIUTAL DROSS/IMPURITIES/IGNORANCE out of my spiritual heart and to educate and train me and then for me to train my soul so that only the Pure Light of the Holy Kingdom Of Heaven Shines and that my spiritual heart and it’s soul would be Sifted for it’s motives and desires. My spiritual heart and soul had to be tested/tried/sifted in order for all that is not of the Father and Agape Love would be cast out and burned up so that only The Image and Likeness, the Spiritual Oneness and Unity of the Heavenly Father and Agape Love would remain. I had to know the spiritual differences of Voices speaking to me for not only my life, but others but the PURPOSES OF GOD were at stake. I had to KNOW THE DIFFERENCES, I HAD TO LEARN TO TEST THE VOICE OF THE SPIRITS AND KNOW!
Satan is always allowed to Test me to see if I can be spiritually SEPARATED out of The Spiritual Unity/Intimacy of the Presence of The Most High God, out of His Pleasure, Out From His Fellowship and thus become a Follower of Another Voice and then becoming a Spiritual TRAITOR!
A Servant of Sin/Rebellion
A Slave Of Another Instead of A King And A Son Of God Of The Kingdom of Heaven
An Unauthorized, Unanointed King/Child/Sheep of God
Spiritual Captive instead of have The Spiritual Dominion and Authority over Sin, Satan and Death and all the Works of God
A Spiritual Adulterer To God’s Holy Voice by Listening/Obeying/Following after Another’s Voice/Obeying Another by Not Testing and Trying as I was Commanded to do.
The Spiritual Stakes are High, The Spiritual Goals Are Eternal and Unchanging!
I HAD FAILED THE TEST!
Then I spiritually figured out I was being tested/sifted/tried by Satan!
Then I went to confess my spiritual failure and asked for forgiveness.
The Evidence Vanished Into The Sea of Forgetfulness
Under The Blood From a Cross
The Accuser Defeated
A hard lesson I learned
Test/Try Every Spiritual Voice I heard
Victory Was Won!
Lessons Learned, Spiritual Growth Advanced, and
God Had The Victory For The Kingdom of Heaven and His Purposes
Well, some tests are not very obvious, but at the time of the testing and sifting and trials of one’s spiritual heart and soul, God The Heavenly Father is usually quiet – Not speaking to us
He is waiting for me to spiritually figure things out, to use the His Words of Spirit and Life I have read and used in this situation, this test, this trial, this sifting.
So, be careful out here in the spiritual realm
Watch out for Tests, Trials of Faith, Sifting
TRY THE SPIRIUTAL VOICES YOU HEAR, YOU FOLLOW, YOU BELIEVE, YOU OBEY
And When you FAIL a TEST, A TRIAL, A SIFTING, A TEMPTATION, go to The Throne Room of God The Judge of The Universe and humble yourself and confess that you failed the test, you missed it and then get up and don’t do it again. Go and Pass the tests/trials/the sifting for they will come again to see if you have learned and CAN PASS THE TESTING, THE TRIALS, THE SIFTING THIS TIME!!
Test, Sifting, Trials They Have to Come to Purify one’s spiritual heart and soul, to bring up the dross, the impurities of the heart and soul and to burn them away in the Fires of God.
