HOW DID I GET “HERE”!
Survival: How Do I Get Out?
Ever ask yourself … “how did I get HERE” in my life?
The next question is, usually, “how do I get out” or “where do I go from here” or even can I get out“? Sometimes, the question is “how do I get back“?
When you don’t like where you are, Satan’s tactic is to pressure you into hating God, blaspheming God and His holy things, accusing God, being angry with and bitter at God, or slipping little by little away from obedience to Jesus Christ’s commands for life.
Satan always uses a person to influence your mind. Therefore, you must keep your heart with all diligence. Watch who you let into your mind through books, radio, tv, movies and games. These communications can take you either the way Jesus wants for your healthy life or the direction Satan wants.
Think of many entertainers who wanted out of poverty and other life conditions. The only way they could see out was the world of performance and entertaining the publeic. God blessed them with the abilities they have and they get awards for using those abilities — however, often for Satan.
Later, Satan called in the debt they owed him for the world he gave them. All he wanted was for them to use God’s talents for increasing his world and his stranglehold on people. We know this is true — because Satan tried to make the same deal with Jesus. See Luke 4:5-6.
5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
KJV from Biblegateway.com
10) Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.
The Lord Jesus Christ has commanded us to reverence God by giving thanks in all things. In all situations that Satan brings, try your best to remember to NOT side with Satan by muttering against God and falsely accusing him of the evil Satan did. Give thanks, find SOMETHING! Acknowledge that, you can’t see how, but choose to believe God will do something good toward you even out of this situation. He loves you and that is “exactly” what He has planned for you.
So, if you are stumbling, or have stumbled and your faith is faltering, realize that how you got wherever you are began with “MURMURING” (griping, complaining, muttering under your breath). Somehow, a person helped you choose to do it. First step would be to cut off that person from your life while you get strong.
SATAN USES A PERSON AGAINST YOU
Satan “always” uses a person to get you where he wants you.
Satan always uses a person against you. By you obeying only the Bible Lord Jesus Christ, as He trains your spirit in faith and love through your pastor, Jesus is strengthening and maturing you.
By maturing yourself through other preachers in addition to your pastor (Ephesians 4:11) who even rank above your pastor, you will conquer whatever weapons Satan launches against you. The entire New Testament reveals to you that Jesus intended that it take more than one kind of preacher to mature you into the person Christ needs you to be.
There is either “The Holy Spirit” of Jesus Christ) or an evil spirit (from Satan) engaging you through persons entering your affairs all day.
When you know this, you will take more seriously whom you allow into your head or home. Your response to them should always be respectful and FIRM if you need to leave them or shut them out. Sometimes “holy” anger will require you to take greater measures toward them to make them understand to abandon their commitment of poisoning you and your family into Satan’s power.

SUMMARY: How To Investigate
- You can always investigate and verify where you are with the Bible Lord Jesus Christ. Trace it using Mark Chapter 4.
- You can investigate and verify if you are saved or still have His judgment pending upon you.
- You can investigate and verify how He saved you. You can even investigate and verify how you got where you are — good or bad.
- Either way, saved, stumbling, or not saved at all, Satan ALWAYS plants a person to work through for his plans against you. Satan always uses a person. This individual or individuals — is “camouflage”.
- Try to make sure “you” are not the camouflage
