“THE DEATH OF THE EMMANUEL NINE…SERVES MORE THAN REMOVING A FLAG. I KNOW THAT THIS SERVES MORE THAN A WARNING TO THE CHURCH. HATRED IS IMBEDDING IN SOME MINDS THAT ARE NOT ONLY MENTALLY IMBALANCED…BUT A SIGN OF EVIL THAT WILL RADICATE MANY IF WE ARE NOT CAREFUL”.
TRUE STORY… Quite some years ago… A horrific discovery of a family gone bad. After suffering long lines of abuse and mentally ill evil. One family that lived in Chicago could no longer ignore what has been brewing for years. Four children lived with both parents. Both parents abusive and both mentally ill.
I knew the mother was very well-educated and so was the daughters… I didn’t know a lot about the father only that he was cruel, abusive and a whole lot of crazy. They had four children two boys and two girls. Rumors had been that some strange things happened within the home and the home was cursed!
The father died and the mother was left to endure some of the end results of things being hidden and mental has issues ignored! To bring everything up to speed. One of the daughters knew that hers brother was getting more and more mentally imbalanced. The cover up is we go to church and act like the son didn’t have issues. In fact both sons had mentally health issues. Yet, the younger son, had other things on his mind. Coming in one day… He stabbed his mother 23 times with a steak knife…she didn’t die but stabbed one of the girls 22 but she died. No one wanted to talk about just how bad it was and no one wanted to speak about how certain people with mental issues we shouldn’t ignore. nonetheless…. He wanted to murder his family. He is still in prison… there is no talks of his mental health … Whatever secrets the family hid… the end results proven deadly. The mother eventually died from illness and the stress of losing two children. One murdered by her sibling and the other who is still incarcerated today. All those years he stayed in the basement under the stairs plotting!
Unfortunately… the entire family was marred with the mere fact… bad behaviors were ignored! I told this story because I am not one who ignore people with this odd behavior. My guards are never down when some people are so far out of touch with reality. Mental illness of any kind shouldn’t be made light of… Yet, there is something about erratic behavior to kill!
I go back to the Emmanuel Nine who died after praying for someone who apparently meant evil and brought a massacre to God’s House. My point…Is there is this influx of people who have evil intent. I will keep shouting it to the roof top and make my voice be heard. I don’t do well when I see a lot of irrational behavior that many shrug to be nothing. I can almost swear that on the South Side of Chicago… It’ like the temperament is getting more riper for a situation to occur.
People who rather ignore it than to do something about it. You prefer not offend anyone versus “any bloody Sunday”.
Within this family who I knew personally one of the family members who was recently also died a strange death… she was found dead… in that house . Some say suicide and it too was hurried and buried along with the secrets.
My point with all of this. People love to act like someone isn’t disturbing them. Not only does this disturbs me … I often discern that something will pop off if we don’t stop get our heads out of the sand.
My concern is that I am seeing more and more people like this in our places of worship. When you have people like this around you better be mindful. No, I don’t feel safe and I am not that comfortable closing my eyes in prayer, because too many folks have their guards down. My safety is first whether anyone decides I am important enough. If one decides that all of this should be taken lightly.
I want you to carefully recall what has recently happened in a church in South Carolina. The loss of life all because the church wants to be more open about what they open themselves up to. Elders were the wise mean and women of the group. No days… the people talk among themselves and lose the courage to be outspoken about it. I am going to be bold. More than ever we have something lurking under the stairs… Killers are taking a survey but they will do a test runs.
We cannot live in fear but foolishly we can’t start to believe their mindset to do us harm will go away. Ignorantly the church ignores rude and erratic behavior as if the cherubim of God will rescue the people.
How about … God’s common angels are sounding the clarion alarm…. I believe the satan is marking territories with some feeble minds. We cannot live in fear but we can’t live foolishly either… that this kind of mindset that want to do us harm will eventually go away… I have seen this many times… Warnings are ignored and then tragedy occurs and everyone wants an explanation!
WE ARE COMMANDED TO WATCH AS WELL AS PRAY!
