Hi, Rebecca here, I want to share the spiritual element of cannabis and how it may affect you if you are a follower of Christ.
Before you read let us pray, Dear Alpha and the Omega, I AM that I AM, Yeshua Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. If anyone wrestling with the same issue I had, please open their eyes to see truth, their ears to hear truth, and soften their heart to receive this information. Please help any who wrestle with this issue and are not aware that this is how they are being compromised, to understand it. Bind all spirits of blindness, bind all spirits of hate, allow them to see. In Yeshua Jesus I pray Amen.
In the past I used cannabis for pain issues when I didn’t want to use prescribed opiates. I had justified its use in that way. I know many believers still use it as a pain management plan, and if it works for you, I am so happy that you found something that is ‘natural’ and not addictive like Opiates. This article is NOT TO CONDEMN THOSE WHO USE IT, it’s just my story. Okay?… ok 😊
So, for years as my conditions progressed and I had to use cannabis daily, it progressed to several times a day. What I noticed is this, it caused depression, it caused anxiety, and worse of all! It opened me up psychically or spiritually! This last point is really the reason I want to share my experience.
Just to fill you in on the type of person that I am regarding my spirituality, I pray, a lot! I study and research a lot! And I am very strict about what I watch on TV and the music I listen to. Anything that is degrading, demoralizing, or demonic and violent I don’t watch that stuff anymore. That’s just to let you understand what kind of person I am, I am not trying to brag. FYI I used to LOOOOVE Marilyn Manson, Geiger, any kind of violence and darkness, just as a side note. Anyway, I found that regardless of how prayed up I was, or how pure I was trying to live, EVERYTIME I utilize cannabis whether CBD or THC, does not matter, I would feel another data stream pouring into my brain. And I did NOT LIKE IT!
I am trying to say, regardless of how much Holy Spirit I believed that I had, things were beginning to bother me. Thoughts and feelings that are NOT natural for me anymore came to me. Ideas that were NOT me, popped into my head. Desires that are NOT me began to grow. And in all honesty, they were not good. Some disgusting, base, and perverse. Stuff I would NEVER WANT TO DO naturally! That’s not all, wrongs against me would swirl and foment. I found myself mulling over those who had sinned against me in the smallest way. I was now becoming an unforgiving wrathful murderous person. If you knew me, you would understand how ridiculous that sounds that I would become that. But please be aware, if you have DID ( dissociative identity disorder), some of these traits may be there naturally,
I have since stopped all cannabis usage, and guess what? All that stopped. My depression is 90% under control, my anxiety is low, and what is most important to me… the Holy Spirit is the only spirit I commune with.
What I observed is this, it opens you up to receive whatever zeitgeist is being promulgated on the masses spiritually. Whatever hidden sins that are swelling up from the poisonous filth ruining our world, you may be a vessel for it. The more sensitive you are, the more you will feel it. I have always been an empath/sensitive whatever…. My entire family has that 6th sense. I am aware of foreign thought forms that invade my consciousness. As this went on, the more I became uncomfortable with its effects upon me.
You may not have any where near this experience. Great! I’m happy for you. But down the line, if a loved one says to you, “What happened to the person I used to know.”, or “That’s not like you at all! When did you get into that stuff?!” Do you get my drift? You may not even notice how you change, it may be so slow or in such minutia that it escapes your attention.
If you profess to be a follower of Christ, you use cannabis, and you are wrestling with foreign disturbing thought and feelings??? Well, try going off the stuff completely for a few weeks. You will feel like a new person…. I did and I have not looked back.
In conclusion this is what I have suspected, that Cannabis is a mild hallucinogen, much like LSD, DMT, or Ayahuasca. Yes, I know it’s nowhere near as strong! But like the others, it opens you up. It makes you susceptible to influence of the energies swirling around us every day. If you were forced to take spiritual warfare as seriously as I have you will come to the same conclusion, it’s not safe to put your self at risk. If you disagree fine, I just want to let others know there is something spiritual about cannabis and it affected me poorly.
God Bless you all,
