Coincidence or synchronicity ? A question that often came up when I would constantly see recurring number, or when I would happen to glance at my phone just in time to see 11:11 or 4:44 or some other combination of repeating numbers.
After reading a book and watching a documentary that purported to have the secrets of the universe,I was convinced that the “universe” was trying to tell me something. So I did what any serious researcher of academia would do,
I googled it.
and of course I was led to a site that had all the answers,
I hit the jackpot.
or, so I thought. The message on the site said that my “angels” were trying to communicate with me. I was convinced that they were trying to provide me with the answers to the questions I had about my purpose, my calling. In other word what was the one thing I was put here on earth to do, that would make me wildly successful.
So I went all in and jumped head first into a rabbit hole that gave me all of the answers that I sought after…or so I thought. You see the bible warns us in Matthew 7:15 to beware of wolves in sheep’s clothing but inwardly they are ravening wolves. However I had been so blinded by my newfound freedom from religiosity, that I did not realize I had made myself easy prey for the enemy to devour. I was no longer bound by the restraints of religion but I was now “spiritual” and “woke”.
So here I went reaching out to my angels, my spirit guides to provide me with information and instructions. I read the books and watched the videos that would take me further along my journey of enlightenment. I went so far as to uncover my life number and relied on numerology to guide me into my destiny. I was on my way.
To the deepest, darkest, kind of depression that only leads to death.
But I was still blinded by my “angels”, after all angels are God’s messengers so this must be good. Right. 2 Corinthians 14:15 says that Satan himself masquerades himself as an angel of light, and his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness.
You see what I failed to understand was that rather than seeking answers from the one who created me, who predestined my future from before time began, I was seeking idols that speak deceitfully, diviners that see visions that lie; telling dreams that are false, giving comfort in vain. I was wandering like a sheep under oppression as described in Zechariah 10: 2 (emphasis mine).
I had broken the first commandment and chosen to worship the creation above the creator.
I was walking towards an artificial light that was leading me into the depths of darkness.
Until one day ……God.
