Elizabeth Smart…Soldier for God

December 31st, 2013 | By admin

HAPPY NEW YEAR…May the year 2014 take you HIGHER!


I have just completed reading the true story of Elizabeth Smart. Elizabeth was 14 years old at the time she was taken from her bedroom on June 2, 2002 at knife point by Brian David Mitchell in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was found alive 9 months later, walking on a road in Sandy, Utah (18 miles from her home) with Brian David Mitchell and his wife Wanda Ileen Barzee.

Needless to say, Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Ileen Barzee, were convicted for her kidnapping. Mitchell is now serving a life sentence at the United States Federal Penitentiary Tucson, and Barzee is currently serving a 15-year sentence at the Federal Medical Center, Carswell in Texas.

The main chord or rope that has tied me to this story was Elizabeth Smarts enormous faith in GOD. Elizabeth is of the Mormon faith and wikipedia.com explains the belief as:

“Mormons self-identify as Christian, though some of their beliefs differ from mainstream Christianity. Mormons believe in the Bible, as well as other books of scripture, such as the Book of Mormon. They have a unique view of cosmology, and believe that all people are spirit-children of God. Mormons believe that returning to God requires following the example of Jesus Christ, and accepting his atonement through ordinances such as baptism. They believe that Christ’s church was restored through Joseph Smith, and is guided by living prophets and apostles. Central to Mormon faith is the belief that God speaks to his children and answers their prayers.

My personal belief as a Christian man is that God is the Father whom sent his Son Jesus into this world as a sacrifice to die for the sins of all mankind. Jesus was crucified, died, and was buried, and on the third day he rose and ascended into heaven into the God-Head(Father, Son & Holy Spirit). As Jesus departed from earth by ascending into heaven, he left us all the gift of the Holy Spirit/Spirit of Truth/Holy Ghost. I believe in the Triune God manifested as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each itself being God.

My reason for mentioning the difference in "religion" is mankind will often turn into "Spiritual Gang Bangers" in the sense of fighting one another over which religion is the supreme religion, and closest to God. This fight is not ours to fight, as we should be most concerned with our own repentance and Salvation. I know who saved me, I know the source from which my Salvation, Joy and breakthrough flow, and as for me and my house we will serve the triune God.

As Omnipotent as GOD is, who are we to say who will get to Heaven or will not? God has the last say so in all things.

“John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

God Loves us all whether Mormon, Catholic, Baptist, Protestant, C.O.G.I.C, Muslim, Pentecostal, Budhist, Scientologist etc. In the end it was our choice on whom we served. So please research, test and try spirits while using razor like discernment. Your eternity depends on you to make the right choice!

“1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

I have a Muslim friend with whom I have shared some of my deepest spiritual dreams and visions. In turn, he has shared his faith and the spiritual depth. We have agreed, and at times agreed to disagree, all done in Love. My friend once mentioned a conversation between he and his deceased father. He said that he asked his dad while meditating once, " Father, what do you see as the way to GOD?, and How do I get there?" His Muslim faithed, father spiritually responded and said, "Son there are many funnels upon the earth, and these funnels pull people in and may seperate them according to their faith and relationship with God. These funnels may lead to an eternal position inside the Spirit Realm"

I then quickly told my Muslim friend that 8-10 years earlier, a Christian faith cousin of mine said she had a dream about the same funnels. She told me that she was on a large 747 airplane, flying smoothly through the sky, but noticed the other passengers looking out of the windows down onto the earth. She then looks out of the window and see's several funnels spinning throughout the earth pulling people into them like huge vacuums.

Three Months ago, I watched the movie "R.I.P.D" and well what do you know??? A scene with those funnels! At this point I'm thinking "GOD CAN YOU MAKE IT ANY CLEARER":)

So now back to Ms. Elizabeth Smart. Inside her book, Elizabeth speaks of many miracles that only GOD could've provided her during her abduction. The one's that will forever reverberate throughout my mind are when God provided her water on several occasions after experiencing near death, water deprivation.

Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

I think of the horrible humiliation and torment that Elizabeth went through in being raped almost daily, mentally tortured, and humanly deprived by a man who claims to be a Man of God on a Mission for GOD!?!?! Brian David Mitchell’s God was clearly Satan. God answered her prayers on time each time, as he spoke so clearly to her. She truly went through hell on earth during her abduction at the hands of 2 demonically led individuals.

We as Christians believe that through Christ is the only way to heaven. So many believe that Lutherans are closer to God than Catholics and Catholics are better than Baptists and Protestants are holier than all of them! Once again, I personally follow the triune God, not any religion or Man. You can find the bones of Joseph Smith, You can find the Bones of Buddha,Elijah Mohammed or any other prophet who walked this earth. But still to this very day NO scientist, NO Man, in the earth or outside have found the bones of the ascended into Heaven, the One, the Only JESUS CHRIST. He has risen, Yes he is risen indeed!! and May he rise inside your heart within this New 2014 Year.

Lastly, The Elizabeth Smart story was a great true story read, that will most definitely help many that are struggling today. This story showed that no matter who you are, or what pit you have fallen into, GOD and GOD alone can save you, bring you through and deliver you if you call his name! Though he has brought us low, he has made us high! God Bless You Elizabeth Smart. Stay Pushing for God and Never give up the righteous fight in Spirit & Truth!

Thank you to my friend Deborah for sharing this book with me:) God Bless You!
