BIBLE | The Study Notes of a Demoniac [2 Timothy 2:10]

Before any of you start getting a little heify over that last post—the one where I clearly erred in moral judgment, even though I still intend to go through with it, if I can—take a look at my latest Bible study note on what you're supposed to be doing with that clean conscience of yours that you're just dying to wave in my face...



Most people's primary reason for keeping their hands clean (abstaining from sin)—and, therefore, possessing a clear conscience before God—is to preserve their own lives; but, that's not the right motive, even if it is the right means:
Therefore I [am ready to] persevere and stand my ground with patience and endure everything for the sake of the elect [God's chosen], so that they too may obtain [the] salvation which is in Christ Jesus, with [the reward of] eternal glory.
Seeking life through righteousness is for the explicit and sole purpose to serve the lives of other saints, who are an early dispensation of your eternal reward: that is, an intimate and eternal friendship with like-minded, loving, faithful and true brothers and sisters molded in Christ.

Jesus even said:
For whoever is bent on saving his [temporal] life [his comfort and security here] shall lose it [eternal life]; and whoever loses his life [his comfort and security here] for My sake shall find it [life everlasting].
Seeking life, then, by righteous conduct may obtain it, but using it for the benefit of the saints is essential to keeping it; otherwise, you may die, leaving behind any number of confused people asking, "Why do bad things happen to good people?" The answer being, of course, that you weren't making good with your "good."

The Bloodline of a Demoniac

Demon-fighting is in my genes, I think, and here's why:
  • I thrive on it, even when it demands all my days and nights, all my relationships, all my skills, and all my resources above working, eating, sleeping and...well, breathing;
  • Of all the powers there are to have, mine is the only one out there that actually repels all varieties of demons [see VIDEO | Demon-exorcising power (finally) caught on camera; see also VIDEO | "Zap" emits EMF radiation visible to digital camera]; and,
  • My innate, unfathomable, unwavering, all-encompassing, dominating, overwhelming and steadfast devotion to the greatest demon-fighter of all-time, namely, Jesus of Nazareth (aka the Son of God), is actually strengthened by the fight, and is never diminished by it, suggesting a soul connection, if not a genetic one.
Okay, that last one was way gratuitous, and the first one has nothing to do with genetics; but, the second, I'm not so sure it doesn't. Either way, to determine the role of genetics for sure, I'd have to have a kid, and then see how far the apple falls from the tree.

From theory to practice
Hence, my tentative child-bearing arrangement with Sandra Collins, a stranger-but-becoming-much-less-so-now from Texas:

Tentative volunteer for birth mother of my hoped-for progenitorI was just trying to be funny at the time, but I wish I hadn't said it the way I did, though
Anyway, turns out she wasn't barking up the wrong tree, after all, as I suggested at one point after her second attempt to contact me, and here's where the negotiations stand so far:

I ignored her for about a month until I had a need for herAfter that, a mincing of words did not happen
Unfortunately, locale is at issueBut, flexibility seems to be her forté
Ack, the money problem haunts me once again......but, I seem to find my way around that every time
Morality versus conquest
Now, this may seem a little seedy or amoral to most; but, the Apocalypse will not not pretty—no wars ever were. I'm in this fight to win it; but, I'd rather give life than take it. Rearing a child in the training and admonition of the Lord is a war-time maneuver, designed to leave a suitable replacement of my choosing in my stead, who will not only have the most unique (ad)vantage point of all other humans—with me being the only known doorway between worlds, and all that—but will also possess all of the invaluable inborne demon-fighting characteristics unique to me to which my genes contribute, as well.

The conversation between Sandra and I are ongoing, even until this very minute. We are discussing her vocational and educational career path right now, which I am helping her solidify, so that when I pass the child back to her just prior to my death, he/she will land in good hands.

Update on September 10th, 2015
It's probably a no-go between Sandra and I, or even between Plan B and I; I just can't abandon my one hope. True, I need to do exactly as I said in this post; but, I should probably ask God for a way to do it correctly, instead of hopping right off and doing it incorrectly. The author of Let God Be True! probably put it best as to the exact reason why:
He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.
— Proverbs 10:9 
Your character and conduct are everything. They determine if God will bless or curse you, if you will succeed in life or not, or if others will discover you are a fool. A successful life lived confidently and securely is far better than being exposed for sins. 
A man or woman that walks uprightly is one with great character and conduct – always doing what is right as defined by God in the Bible. This is no cheap talk – this is walking the walk. Such a person’s conduct matches God’s standard of right and good. The promised reward is His blessing, life success, and no fear of hypocrisy being discovered. 
A person with low character perverts his ways – choosing to do what he thinks is right, without total submission to God and His word. He often covers his cheating choices with pious pretensions, but God will curse him, he will fail, and his hypocrisy will be exposed. 
Doing things strictly by God’s word, which is the only right way to do anything, makes for a sure life of blessing and success. Perverting things, or choosing to do them even slightly different than what the Bible says, leads to trouble and humiliation. Guaranteed! 
What is your character? Read carefully. It is the traits that define or describe you, what you are other than biological factors, the code of conduct that rules your actions, the discipline or defaults for what you do, and the lifestyle that makes up your reputation. 
A consistent life of godliness will keep a man confident, and God’s favor will keep him from stumbling. But rejecting instruction and wisdom, and choosing his own way, will lead a man to pain and suffering, and his perverse rebellion will be revealed to others. 
The sister proverb declares: 
Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
— Proverbs 28:18 
The slight variation in wording helps fill out the full sense of the warning. The upright man will be blessed and safe from trouble in his life, but the perverse man will definitely and suddenly fall into trouble. 
The proverb you are considering adds that secret hypocrisy and hidden rebellion will be exposed and known. The man who chose to do things his way will be ridiculed by others, for they will clearly see that he cheated and compromised godly wisdom. Though he flattered himself that he had better insight, he will later hate his foolish choice (Ps 36:2). 
Zophar bluntly reminded Job about hypocrites by saying, “Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth, that the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment? Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds; Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?” (Job 20:4-7). Judas and Ananias perverted the way of the Lord, and their judgments are well known, the former hung himself by God’s judgment, and the latter was killed directly by God (Matt 27:3-5; Acts 1:18; 5:1-11). 
A sincere and faithful man, who walks righteously before God and men, will be secure in his conscience, in the blessings of God on his life, and in safety from trouble (Pr 28:1; Is 33:15-16). Reader, this is the good life. This describes a great man. Where are you tempted to compromise? Where are you playing with folly or sin in your life? Repent! 
This man is single minded with no fear of detection, for he has never practiced deceit or hypocrisy. He neither fears devils or wicked men, for God is his helper and heaven his home. He will not fear the future, for his heart and steps are fixed in God’s word. He knows that God is with him, regardless of what men may think. He knows that difficulties for other men will not defeat or destroy him. He is confident and secure. 
But the man who chooses sin and perverts the way of righteousness will fall for sure, and all men will know his secret and selfish pride and perversity. To disobey is truly to be perverse, for it is corruption of, and rebellion against, God’s wisdom. Perversity is God’s word for disobedience, and you should respect the seriousness of disobeying (Job 33:27). 
Sin has consequences, and the hypocrite cannot hide his foolish heart and private life for long. He shall fall at once, and good men will see his perverse practices being the cause of the fall (Pr 26:24-26). Noble saints will even pray for his exposure (Ps 144:7-8,11). 
Though such a man thinks he has hid his sin, the Lord sees every motive of his heart and every hidden act. If he makes it to the grave with his lying pretense in place, it will show up in his family and/or in the Day of Judgment (Eccl 12:14; Luke 12:1-5; I Tim 5:24). 
Upright men are commended, but perverse men will be despised (Pr 12:8). Upright men fear the Lord, but perverse men despise him by their actions, no matter what they say (Pr 14:2). It is better to be a poor upright man than to be a rich perverse man (Pr 28:6). 
The man who walks obediently with the Lord Jesus Christ is the surest of them all (Heb 13:5-6). He is content and confident, and the Lord will be with him when all men desert him (II Tim 4:16-18). Paul was not ashamed of his despised life, for he knew Whom he had believed (II Tim 1:12). Reader, are you walking surely with the Lord this day?
Plan B...
Should things not proceed as hoped for with Sandra, there are always options, and here's how I plan to explore them (although I'm open to suggestions for any improvements to my approach):
My craigslist ad, posted to Men Seeking Women (!)
So far, this is just a trial run to gauge interest; I'll expand to other dating sites as data suggests (and, if necessary).

About bloodlines and powers
What made me think to ask the question of genetics to begin stems largely from this fact: Jesus was half Holy Spirit of God, half man; much of what He did I've seen the equivalent of in human-demon hybrids with my own eyes (e.g., walking on water, etc.). Many humans are not pure human; rather, they are a blend of demon (or, Sons of God) and human [read Genesis 6:2]—some to the extent of having an actual conjoined demon hidden in and around their otherwise human bodies. One such person is Sally the Tranny, whose demon was caught on camera, extending himself from her bosom (the most common location for a conjoined demon) in VIDEO | Tranny harbors demon in bosom.

Accordingly, I think they are transferred from parent to offspring, genetically.

Child safety, considered
This world was specifically designed and shaped by God to suit any demon fighter just fine; so, my child will feel right at home, even in light of the daunting circumstances he/she will face. Let me explain:

Jesus isn't just an add-on at the end of the Old Testament; rather, everything prior to the New Testament that happened and was written about were acts of God intended to prepare our hearts and minds to receive Christ. The Old Testament, then, is a record of how God shaped and otherwise prepared the world for the coming (and success) of His Son.

Exodus 12:13 describes the first act of God in this regard, which was made on behalf of his Son, who would not come until thousands of years later. The message He intended to send to Man by and through this act:

Whereas the angel of Death passed over houses on which the blood of the paschal lamb was sprinkled on their thresholds [Exodus 12:13], likewise, sprinkling the blood of Christ over the doorway to your heart will give you life [1 Peter 1:18-19].

This message is the foundation for our rejoicing in Christ Jesus and our worship of God, as the early church so poignantly emphasized in its writings...
You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold, But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.
Purge (clean out) the old leaven that you may be fresh (new) dough, still uncontaminated [as you are], for Christ, our Passover [Lamb], has been sacrificed.
By faith (simple trust and confidence in God) he instituted and carried out the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood [on the doorposts], so that the destroyer of the firstborn (the angel) might not touch those [of the children of Israel]. [Exod. 12:21-30.]
...and shows that God goes to great lengths to make a home for His own, and prepares those homes well in advance.

I didn't make this up, in that the Bible explicitly states that God had a plan since the before the beginning, and that it led up to everything we know and cherish now:
Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of His purpose). [And it is this:] In accordance with His good pleasure (His merciful intention) which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him, [He planned] for the maturity of the times and the climax of the ages to unify all things and head them up and consummate them in Christ, [both] things in heaven and things on the earth. In Him we also were made [God's] heritage (portion) and we obtained an inheritance; for we had been foreordained (chosen and appointed beforehand) in accordance with His purpose, Who works out everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His [own] will, So that we who first hoped in Christ [who first put our confidence in Him have been destined and appointed to] live for the praise of His glory!”
So, my rationale is this: if God made the world for Christ, those who follow Him will make for as good a fit in this world as any. Moreover, it looks like God made the world for Christ to conquer evil, and that is definitely going to be the focus of any child of mine.
