Steve goes on to explain how chemistry of meth relates to witch craft and sorcery through the leading of the Holy Spirit. His findings are that the Greeks, Chinese and Indians usually referred to what westerners call alchemy as ” The Art “. by terms denoting change or transmutation (transformation). It’s the beginning of what is called scientific view also preceded alchemy. Which was based on opposite forces —hot and cold positive and negative—- good and evil. Alchemy was always obsessed with the making of gold and also revolved around base metals and a focus theory on the idea that a substance (POWDER) can transform instantly, magically to. Steve also stressed that methamphetamine has to be transformed with some kind of metal—it revolves around this.
This makes so much sense to me, because preparing crack or heroine before smoking or shooting it in your vein you must use a metal spoon or pop can to mix the (POWDER) with certain other ingredients. I know because I use to cook both before using. Again, this parallels with meth and from my experience Steve is correct in his findings through his experience.
Methamphetamine is what Satan has been working on for hundreds and hundreds of years, developing a substance that would transform the human person into the likeness of him. I know this to be true. I was a totally different person when I was in the drug game. I got so caught up in its power over me that I became blind to self destruction of my body, mind and soul. People become ruthless. They steal, lie, cheat others and even to the point of killing others lives mentally and physically.
At one point It turned both Steve Box and I into the complete opposite of Jesus Christ. In the Holy Bible, Paul wrote in Galatians 5:22 The fruits of the Holy Spirit ( characteristics of Jesus himself) which are Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control. Against such things there is no law.
The best way I can describe how ugly and ungodly these drugs are is to share how Opposite I really was
Love – I hated myself and therefore didn’t care about all the lives I was affecting negatively, so if I didn’t Love myself I couldn’t really truly Love another nor did I feel like I could be loved by anyone EVEN GOD. I always thought He was angry and hated me for what I was doing, not knowing the unconditional Love of Christ is always I Love You “WHEN” you sin and not I Love You “IF” you do or do not sin.
Joy – I had no real Joy because I was too busy chasing my next high to where it consumed my every thought and deed. After coming down off the high I felt so guilty and sad that it transformed me sometimes into a hopeless zombie.
Peace – I had none because I knew what I was doing was bad and deep down all of us druggies know it’s all evil.
Patience – I had none. nor have I ever met a dealer/user who did. A roller coaster of cat and mouse but always feeling like I was prey to an unseen evil force. It blinded me into thinking that the police, family or even God was the threat of taking it away from me, and I couldn’t possibly live without it by dismissing what it was doing to me by thinking,”Oh well, everyone does it.” Or, “I can stop when ever I want cuz it aint got no control over me.” Besides gotta make that money so I might as well do a lil somethin, somethin to keep me going and get paid!
Kindness – The only kindness I’ve seen is sharing your dope to keep the high going and sometimes even that is deceived as ” awe you care… you gave me some dope for free so therefore you must really like or love me.
Goodness -I have seen some really good people fall into this lifestyle, but it is the complete opposite of what good stands for because NOTHING GOOD ever comes out of this lifestyle. You never meet a longtime drug dealer/user because they don’t exist due to them being Dead or Incarcerated for life.
Gentleness – I became so hardhearted. I carried a gun, fist fought at the drop of a dirty look or word.There was nothing about me that read gentle. In fact I was aggressive, hateful and mean.
Self-control – Huh? Whats that? you re-read these first seven and then you tell me where self-control fits in?
Now if drugs like Meth, Cocaine and Heroin are not the work of satan then maybe you need to ask yourself, “AM I ALSO BLIND TO THE SCHEMES AND EVIL DONE BY SATAN?”
