Welcome to this site. My prayer is that you take a look at the site and as you do, let the Holy Spirit speak to your heart and reveal what God wants you to discover. (in Jesus' name)

God tells us that if we see a brother (or sister) in need we should do that which is within our means to help. Prayer is always within our means but we never know what doors Father may open through them. Should you desire prayer for anything (healing, direction, etc.) or if you want supportive prayer along with your own please feel free to e-mail that request to and be assured that there are others who will be praying with or for you.

In this blog, I share what the Lord shares with me. I reference scripture a lot in support of what is being said. I realize that what is in each entry is NOT a complete 'word' on what is being said, but is rather enough information to stimulate our spirits to dig deeper (remember the Bereans Acts 17:10-11) thereby gaining a fuller understanding for ourselves.

At the end of each post are the options to share, forward or make a comment. Click 'comment' to respond. Let us know if you like, don't like or are helped by what you read. Comments can be made or read by anyone. All you have to do is select the "comment" at he end of the entry.

9-9-2023    SG-1 and Spiritual Warfare


#3        Divine completeness or fullness, perfection)

#7        Resurrection; Spiritual completeness; Fathers (or Spiritual) perfection

#8        New birth; New beginnings, New creation

#9        Fruit of the spirit; Divine completeness from the Father, God’s Visitation, Judgment; it signifies the Gifts, as well as the Fruit of the Spirit 

The past two months (July & August) and this month (September) are a unique lineup of how Father is working in the world today.

Let’s look at what He has been and is doing:

In July, Father has brought some things to spiritual completeness.  We should have completed some things in our lives which Father had set before us.  We should have also seen some ‘old’ things (necessary for now) resurrected in our lives.  That is things we should have dealt with long ago, but haven’t.

In August, Father began a new work in us.  That is, new doors should have opened up for a richer, deeper relationship with our heavenly Father.

And, now, for September.  9 is 3X3, divine fullness or perfection.  Not double your ‘pleasure’ or double your ‘fun’ BUT triple!  As we approach and move through Rosh Hashanah (9/15-9/17), Father will be bringing more things to completeness, that is our gifts, abilities and/or talents can be increased.   That is, our understanding will become more vivid and/or alive.  We should see an increase in the fruit of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and self-control  (Gal. 5:22-23) and the gifts which are the word of wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, tongues and their interpretation (1 Corinth. 12:4-12).  And as we seek our heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord, because the Holy Ghost is alive and well within our heart, we will not only see but receive (to some degree) these increases.

Now is the time to be obedient in the Word of God so we can reach out and receive!  And then share.

Now, what does “Stargate SG-1” have to do with all of this?  Glad you asked.

I’m a Sci-Fi fan.  I enjoyed the ‘Day the Earth Stood Still’, I liked ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Star Wars’ were okay and I loved ‘SG-1’.    However, I never saw the spiritual battle in SG-1 before this AM (Labor Day 2023).  OK, so I’m a slow learner (lol)! 

But Father started running it through my little brain.  In the beginning, the goa’uld were the primary nemesis against whom SG-1 battled.  They were snake-like parasites who needed a host (human) in which to live (they needed arms & legs to do anything) and according to SG-1, they were responsible for transporting humans throughout the universe since the Egyptian dynasties.  Hmmmm.  However, I don’t think they ever explained how more advanced humanoid life occurred.  Oh, they did introduce the ‘Origin’, didn’t they?  And they did introduce more technologically advanced human-types throughout the series.  The goa’ulds needed a host and they forced themselves – not onto, but into, a not so willing host.  Of course, the host then became a vicious, egotistical wanna-be ruler proclaiming to be a god.  Though more intelligent and technological they were still ‘just’ created beings.  However, SG-1 later introduced the Tok’ra who were also humans possessed by a goa’uld but rather than by force, there was a mutual agreement so both entities could work together and benefit from the agreement.  One forced possession, the other by mutual agreement.  Think about it.

In the beginning, God put Adam and Eve into the garden and gave them free reign with one exception, the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Gen. 1:26-1:31, Gen. 2:7-17).  With this one negative command, Father gave man a choice to disobey and eat or to obey and be obedient and not eat of this tree.  The choice is still ours to make but look at how the ’field’ has grown since the garden!  Not just a tree but a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,  a heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that run to do mischief, a false witness who lies and one who sows discord (Prov. 6:16-19).  And this just speaks in ‘general terms’, not specifics.

Don Stewart, associated with the “Blue Letter Bible , a non-denominational group organized to provide free bible study info , suggests that angels were created when God created the heaven and the earth (Gen.1:1)

Billy Graham suggests that the Bible tells us that the angels were witnesses to the creation of the world, which indicates they were created long before that great event. God asked Job, “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation … and all the angels shouted for joy?” (Job 38:4-7).  Now, this seems to be on the same wavelength as with Mr. Stewart.

The book of Revelation tells us that a great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and a third of the stars of heaven were cast to the earth as they were ready to devour the child of the woman (clothed in the sun) (Rev. 12:1-4).  The word for ‘stars’ here is the Greek word aster (G792) and translates ‘star’.  Take note that God put the stars in the heavens on the fourth day (Gen. 1:14-19), which included the greater and lesser lights (sun & moon).  The Hebrew word used for stars here is kowkab (H3556) which is likened to a blazing object.  I cite Doug Addison here.  Doug runs a prophetic ministry in California and has claimed to see balls of shining light which he, in the Spirit, was told were angels and he has seen and apparently interacted with them.  Implication is that there just might be a relationship.

A quick look t the first two days of creation: the Spirit of God moved across the face of the waters,  mayim (H4325) which is urine, sperm, flood or spring.  Then He created light which He separated from the dark.  Light is owr (H216) which is bright, clear morning, sun (happiness), and dark is alataw (H5939) which is a cover or dusk.  He separated the waters from the firmament.  Firmament is raqiya (H7549) an expanse, the arch of the sky. 

Hmmmm!  Is there a correlation between stars and angels?  I don’t know, but it is something to consider – concerning when angels were created.  Before Genesis 1:14, God was setting the stage for life, here on planet earth.

Okay, ‘nuff about angels and astronomy.  Let’s get back to SG-1 and spiritual warfare.

In spiritual warfare, there are two ways the enemy influences our thinking.  The imagery and sounds around us.  That is, he uses what we see and hear to draw us into his realm.  When this becomes all that we consider, we call this obsession, becoming totally immersed in that to which our enemy exposes us.  And, of course, outright possession, where a devil actually takes up residence within us as with the man in the Gergesenes (Matt. 8:28-34) or the damsel with the divining spirit, whom Paul encountered (Acts 16:16-18.  And as we see in these examples, yes, there is deliverance (PTL). 

The Holy Ghost is a God-given gift as shown with the baptism of Jesus (Matt. 3:11-17) and then the apostles (Acts 1:4-8, 2:1-18).  Now were 120 in that upper room, so not just the 12 apostles but 108 other disciples were also baptized in the Holy Ghost.  Today, this means we, too, can receive this baptism.  The Holy Ghost does give us power (dunamis G1411) to do the things that Jesus did and more (John 14:12-14).  Of course, whatsoever we do in Jesus’ name, we have to believe that He will do it (Mark 11:24) and as with Peter and John with the man at the beautiful gate, do something (Acts 3:1-11). 

Now, even though the Tok’ra had a ‘working’ relationship with their ‘goa’uld’, generally speaking the goa’uld took their hosts by force.  Whereas we ‘invite’ the Holy Spirit into our lives and as we follow Him lead, we find ourselves drawing into a closer relationship with our heavenly Father.  No little parasite of any kind within us!

Keep in mind that the goa’uld do represent a literal evil entity, wich become a literal, controlling parasite within.  The Holy Ghost is the ‘breath of God (ruwach, (H7307) & and in the Greek pneuma (G4151) who is inseparable with the Father (YHWH [Yahweh] and Son (Jesus).  And it is He who takes up residence within our heart, when we invite Him in.

The battle that rages is for ‘where will we spend eternity’?  Humans contend with the goa’uld for the safety and freedom of the universe.  Jesus contends with Satan for the freedom and safety of our soul.  Satan uses devious methods to woo us into his clutches, the goa’ld use a more direct approach – accept or be killed (some choice).  Jesus fights for us by persuading us with the truth of the Almighty God.  Because Jesus desires our love, the choice is totally ours.

Now, I’m not proclaiming that SG-1 is a true reflection of spiritual warfare, but I do find it interesting how this saga does parallel spiritual warfare.  We see the ongoing struggle between good and evil from a ‘human’ perspective.  With all the books, magazines, TV shows and movies, I find it interesting how much man thinks about spirituality while trying to deny there is a true and living God who has the final say in all things. 

We want the truth on spiritual warfare, of course, so we need the bible as our guide for it as it leads to our Lord and Savior (Jesus), who strengthens us and it is in Him whom where find victory victory.

Nonetheless, I find it amazing what we can learn from the world around us.  We pay attention to those things which appeal to us most.  Or do we?  All we have to do is look at the world around us and observe, then realize our relationship (or non-relationship) with our Lord.
