Transcript

Hey girl. Hey. Oh my goodness. I am so excited about this episode because I get to talk to you about something that is a little spooky, wookie, but it is like low key. One of my favorite topics because it's, it's not natural because it is weird. And I like talking about weird things in the realm of This is Truth, this is gospel, like literally it's in the Bible, and this is God, okay?

So, let me start off by saying this. I feel like I have been getting I don't want to say the word attacked, but misdirected. I have been misdirected by a lot of things in my life. Now, is that people, is that things outside of myself? Yes, all of those are yes. But also not just things outside of myself, but in my own head.

And what I mean by that is the, the invisible one, that guy, Voldemort, you know who I'm talking about, uses things to get into our head to stop the thoughts that we have that are from God and that are louder than the voices that are from God. So when, when I want you to think about this, I know we're just getting straight into it, like.

Straight up into it. Straight hot dog. You know what I'm saying? We're getting straight into it though because I need you to hear me and I need you to understand what I'm about to tell you. The thoughts that you have in your business, in your mind, are not necessarily from a good place. They're not necessarily from Jesus.

They're not necessarily for you to walk out your calling. Okay Jeanette, what does that mean? It means sometimes you stop yourself or you get your coach to convince you, quote unquote, convince you that you should be doing something else or you get everybody else on the internet doing that cool thing that you think that you should be doing to convince you that you should be doing something other than what you're actually doing.

And I'm here to tell you that that small voice that says, no, this is the right way to go is the voice you should be listening to. That, my friend is the voice of God. That is not the voice of reason necessarily is not the voice of this is going to make you the most money necessarily. This is not the voice that makes the most sense.

And that's why it's easier for us to listen to those other voices, especially when the voice that says this doesn't make the most sense, that small God voice that's telling you what you should be doing in your business and in your life. That small voice is telling you, you can't do it that way.

You shouldn't do it that way and you're going to fail. Or if you do it that way, you're not going to make the amount of money that you think that you should be able to make. All of that is a bald, bold face lie. Bold face, bald face. I don't care. They're all, they're both gross. Ew. I'm sorry if your husbands are bald, but that is a lie that we should not be listening to perpetrating any of that.

So I want you guys to do this. When that voice comes upon you and you hear somebody in your head that you know is not God, Saying, I'm not saying that you're crazy and you're hearing voices. That's not what I'm saying here, but I'm saying when you hear those voices, they're saying you can't teach biblical stuff.

If you don't have a seminary degree, you can't talk about Jesus. If you are not a preacher, you can't tell people about the things that you've walked through. If you're still in the middle of it, nobody's saying that to you. God is saying, share my glory, share where you're at, do the things you're supposed to be doing.

He's not saying, oh, you don't have a degree, you can't do that. Guess who also didn't have a degree in seminary? Jesus, Paul, any of the gospel guys, they didn't have that. And you know what? My version of teaching scripture, teaching the Bible, teaching whatever this is, this podcast is, this teaching right now that I'm doing to you, that I'm telling you about, that I'm telling you to keep listening to God's voice and not anybody else's voice.

That is spiritual warfare. This is the woo woo thing that I was talking about earlier. That might get a little bit weird, but I want you to know that spiritual warfare is a real thing. I have been doing a lot of research into the spiritual realm and what that looks like. And I don't know why it's just very interesting to me.

And, and I say, I do not watch scary movies. I don't think that they're funny. I don't like them. That's creepy. I don't want to know anything about that. I do not watch specifically anything that has to do with exorcism, demons, poltergeist. ghost, any, any supernatural thing. I, that's not an interest of mine.

It creeps me out. I get really scared because I know in my heart that those things are real and those things are true. And I don't, I don't want to know anything about the supernatural realm unless it's Jesus. And I know I'm safe there. I'm not going there. Nope. So all that to say, I have been doing a lot of research with different books, different books in the Bible, different ministers, different pastors, and learning about this supernatural realm and what that looks like.

And so I'm just going to tell you what I have learned. Take it, leave it, I don't care. This is what I've learned. And so I'm just sharing it. Do your own research. I'm not, I'm not your mama. Do your own research. Okay. So number one. We live in a realm, the human sight realm, the things that we can see is one realm, okay?

Then there are the heavenly realms, plural, the heavenly realms. There's one realm where That evil guy, Voldemort, and his friends, his cohorts, are running around trying to do things and they affect the plane that we're on. This earthly plane. Then there is the other heaven. The heaven that we're all going to, where we currently live.

We currently live in this other heaven. Also, if we have been baptized. Okay. Okay. I'm just going to break down what I've learned. Take it. Like I said, take it or leave it. Okay. This is, this is what happens. When we decide to be baptized, we die to everything on this plane. We are no longer alive on this plane.

We are dead. We die with Christ as he did on the cross. We're dead. We no longer live here. We have a place to inhabit our physical bodies. Here on earth, but we are not alive here, not alive here. We live in the heavenly realm with Jesus seated next to him. Do you understand that? Okay. Breaking it down. We live with Jesus in the heavenly realm.

They're also inhabiting this body here. Okay. I know it's getting weird. It's getting a little woo woo, but just roll with me here. Roll with me now. The second heavenly place, and when I say heavenly place, it doesn't mean that it's not talking about hell. I'm talking about the actual hell, but it is a heavenly place because it is not on earth.

Do you get it? Kind of. Okay. Anyways. So that place is where that guy lives with all his friends and because both the place where we live with Jesus. And then, that other place can affect the realm that we live in, both of those places are true and live and can affect this physical realm that we live in, that we see everyday.

That sometimes we forget that we have a heavenly realm where we are actually living. Okay. So now I want you to think about this. If the Bible says, which it does, that the devil is under our feet, we do not have to allow, that's what we're doing, we are allowing the devil and his friends to affect how we think and act here on the physical.

We don't have to let him do that because he's already under our feet, but we have to remember we are in the heavenly place. We are not here on earth in this physical body that we are cohabitating, okay? That's not it. We have already gotten to that place where we are going to and should be on a daily basis Reminding him of where he is because of where we are seated next to Jesus on the throne.

Where's your crown, girl? Where's your throne? Where's your crown? I have this little little hat right here. This is a What is this? This is a helmet from a Lego I don't know my crowns out, but I'll put this on my head to remind myself of who I am in Jesus Because of Jesus, because he died for you and your sins, it is not your place to allow somebody else to tell you who you are in Christ or in anything else.

It is our jobs in the physical to remember who we are. That's who we already are. It's not like I have to remind myself, Oh yeah, I need to go to the store. No, I'm already at the store. I'm already the owner of this door and these people aren't going to come into it unless I allow them to your brain. You can only let them come into your brain.

Now there's, there's a whole other thing about like demons and spiritual warfare, meaning like possessed by and or being succumbed by those types of entities. I'm not talking about that right now. I'm just talking about remembering who you are, who Christ made you to be. And that there's nothing you can do already if you have been baptized and saved.

There's nothing you can do to separate you from the love of Jesus. Period. You're already sitting next to him. And we have to remember that when we are saved, we might not be spiritually mature to change all the things, to walk with Jesus in perfection, which is not a place that we can ever obtain. But as we're walking towards perfection, making mistakes is okay.

Disobedience will happen when you are spiritually immature. You don't get mad at your kid if they are, they have an accident in the store. Sometimes that happens. Now, if you're a 12 year old having an accident, you might think there's something wrong here. Are you sick? Is there something wrong? Why are you doing this?

Because you know that's out of character. So when you get spiritually mature, you know things are out of character and you need to take a look at yourself and be like, why am I doing this still? But that's another talk for another time. Okay. All I wanted to do was leave you with this. This is getting a little long.

I want to leave you with this. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor neither angels or demons, neither the presence, nor the future, nor any powers, neither height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8 38 39. And I love that verse because it reminds me That you are not saved by your works. You are not saved by anything. It even says angels, angels, nothing can separate you from the love of Jesus. Angels are still below Jesus. And if we are sitting next to Jesus, angels are below us too. They are good. The cherubim with their multi eyes and their weird faces and every time that they see one in the Bible It says do not be afraid because they seem like they're gonna be really scary scary type of things do not be afraid Like why would you need to say that if they're not gonna be scary?

They're definitely scary Definitely scary looking to humans apparently, but I just want to remind you Nothing you can do can separate you from the love of Jesus and you are already as loved as you will ever be because you have been saved by Jesus. So stop doing things that you think that you can't do right, which you can do because somebody else is getting in your head that is not Jesus.

You already live in heaven. You already live in heaven. Remember that. All right, friend, you have a wonderful day. I will talk to you soon.
