Silly Joke Friday

A minister is driving down the road and is stopped for speeding. The state trooper smells alcohol on his breath, sees an empty wine bottle on the floor, and asks, “Sir, have you been drinking?”

The minister replies, “Just water.”

The trooper asks, “Then why do I smell wine?”

The minister looks down at the bottle and exclaims, “Good Lord, He’s done it again!!!”

The Las Vegas Shooting, Murderous Rampages, and Their Motives

On June 12, 2016, our country endured a terrible terrorist rampage by a lone gunman at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where 49 innocent people were killed. Fifteen months later, on October 1, 2017, it happened yet again on our soil when another lone gunman perched from a 32nd floor window at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas and opened fire onto a large crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. When all was said and done after the gunman’s life was extinguished, another 58 harmless individuals had lost their lives, leaving our country with the ongoing question of the motive behind these murderous rampages?

Some argue that it all comes down to gun control, while others say it’s because of how the media continues to glorify it with 24/7 coverage. Then there are those who say it’s because of all the escalating violence in video games. Some claim it’s related to childhood abuse. And then there are even those who claim it’s due to the lack of social connection that people have nowadays, as far too many are withdrawing their lives into technology instead of each other.

Personally, I don’t think it’s any of the above and what I’m about to say is something that I’m sure plenty are just going to roll their eyes to. But, with me being a spiritualist and one who is inclined to believe that there are dark energies at work on our planet, ones that most can’t see with their eyes, I have begun to wonder if many of these murderous rampages are because of them.

I have always believed in both angels and demons. Or if you prefer, good spirits and bad spirits. While I have never seen the existence of either yet (as far as I know), I have read many books about them and have also connected with a number of individuals over the years who have witnessed both. And what I’ve learned from them is how easy it is for the dark spirits to attach themselves to individuals who regularly engage in low vibrational behaviors.

People are probably going to think I’m crazy for admitting this, but when I used to engage in sexual addiction behaviors years ago, I actually felt constantly drained and often had many desires that I felt weren’t even coming from me. Then one day I had a random woman approach me and say I had a dark entity attached to me that needed to be removed. I was pretty freaked out to say the least. She introduced me to someone not too long after that who was gifted in removing such entities and once that person did (for free), I felt a whole lot lighter in life.

With this latest shooter from Las Vegas, it is now known that he too was involved in addiction-like behavior, that being gambling. And I have never known an addict of any kind to only succumb to one addiction. Usually there are others closely tied to a main one. So, could it be possible that through his addiction behaviors, that some dark entity was able to attach itself to him and lead him to do the tragic act he did?

This is all pure speculation of course, but it is said in many of the books I’ve read and from those spiritualists I’ve connected with, that when an entity attaches itself to someone, it can’t force them to do anything, but it can repeatedly whisper and prod them into doing what it does want, almost making it feel like it’s a desire coming from deep within.

In my case, when I relapsed back into my sexual addiction a few years after the first entity got removed, I frequently started getting urges beyond anything I had ever experienced before, ones where I regularly felt a huge need to go hook up with someone. Many would say that’s just the nature of an addiction, which I might normally agree with, but after I got the second entity removed, those severely strong urges totally disappeared and I found an immediate desire to leave the addictive relationship I was in at the time, one that I never had enough strength to leave prior.

I know what I’m proposing here might sound totally preposterous, but my point in writing today’s article was simply to raise an awareness that maybe the motive behind some of these terrible gun-based tragedies is actually tied to dark forces at work on our planet? Maybe the real motive isn’t due to the ease of getting guns, or due to media glorification of the tragedies, or due to the amount of violent video games played, or due to childhood abuse issues, or even due to the lack of social interaction? What if instead it really is due to dark forces at work that somehow find ways to attach themselves to individuals that eventually drive them to do an insane behavior like shoot into a crowd of innocent people?

Regardless of whether there’s any truth to this or not, seeing that I’m not sure it can ever be proven, I’m just grateful God has freed me from engaging in all toxic addictions where anything dark or ominous could potentially attach itself to me again. Because the last thing I would ever want in this life is to find myself with an overwhelming and insane urge to suddenly pick up a gun and harm or kill anyone…
