I was taking a break from work watching the new feed across the screen from MSN and an article came up named “gaslighting”. I had never heard of it so I did a quick google search to find out what it was. There were a large number of articles on this word so I looked it up in Wikipedia. This is what I found:
gaslighting (present participle)
- manipulate (someone) by psychological means into questioning their own sanity.
An article from the UK said:
Gaslighting is a term that refers to trying to convince someone they’re wrong about something even when they aren’t.
The thing that is important to note here is that the person who is doing the “gaslighting”, trying to convince someone they are wrong about something even when they aren’t, knows and is fully aware they are wrong but choose to continue to bully and badger and abuse their target with the full intention of causing them mental emotional and then physical damage. This is an act of one person against another with complete and utter awareness and intent of malice with forethought. This is a murderer acting upon their urges to follow their murderous heart without lifting a finger. This is a murderer acting upon their urges to follow their murderous heart using their words……… It is an act of intimidation and control. It is an act of torture. It is an act of torment. It is an act of the “tribulation of those days”.
I have personally most recently been the target of “gaslighting” perpetrated upon me first by and entire institutionalized social system who demanded I agree with them that my severely crushed foot was only a bruise, a contusion. The lie that my severely crushed foot was a bruise healed long ago and I was goldbricking trying to milk all I could out of it hit the local church structure. These who believe themselves to be the “hand of GOD on earth” decided I was a sinner and I deserved “consequences” which they took upon themselves to administer in “The name of The Lord”.
There were several points to the lie that was the foundation for the “gaslighting” campaign against me:
1. she smokes
2. she is a drunkard and drinks to excess
3. she is a whore/prostitute, damaged goods, dirty, not to be approached because the “dirt” would rub off on you.
4. lazy, never works, does not have a job, does not want a job, a GOLDBRICK
5. a liar full of lies and deceptions, do not trust her, do not do business with her
6. is addicted to illicit drugs/ narcotics
7. is a person into witchcraft and control spirits (this is one of the descriptions of “gaslighting” projecting their aspects onto the target)
8. She is a siren that captures weak men, married men, “christian men” into sexual acts to gain control over their soul and destroy their family.
9. she does not pay her bills
None of this is true, of course. None of this is even based in truth. We used to think where there is smoke there is fire so some place some time the rumors were based in a fact of some sort. But not in the case of gaslighting. Absolutely not based in fact in my regard. They are making it all up. They do not even have to know the person they are gaslighting. It is a new phenomenon I have encountered in earth. This is much further advanced past the “gamers” I had to deal with in high school, or the bullies. I think this is human. I do not think it is “spiritual” or from the ethereal realm. I think this is man’s inhumanity to man. It is human.
The articles I read from psychologists who are studying this phenomenon say the one and only best defense against a person “gaslighting” you is to distance from them. The professional psychologists say it is possible to heal from a serious “gaslighting” campaign against you, but it is not easy. In fact, they suggest healing is rare. They equate “gaslighting” to a soldiers war fatigue and PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
For me, even after I stood my ground and got my surgery so I have my foot back and can walk, there was a single person at my job that took up that old “gaslighting” campaign I defeated and made it her foundation to wage another war against me saying the same things only this time she added “unprofessional and harassing”.
I had just been talking to The Lord God about this wonderful gift I was given. I am talking about this wonder filled tour I was given of the next age of perfection. I saw the river of life with the tree of life branching over it. I walked and talked with the Man in White Linnen. Jesus of Nazareth came by my house and picked me up and took me through the corridors of time back to ancient Israel in the time of the Ashera worship and Jezebel to join him in crushing the Ashera poles effectively ending the power base of the witches. I have seen the place called Purgatory. I have been to the physical place known as Gehenna or hell. It is not hot now. Jesus victory is complete. I have walked and talked with the angels incarnate among us. I was shown my mansion that is prepared for me there. I have seen with my own eyes the throne of Creator God and witnessed the lake of glass and Lucifer and the two beasts…. Why. I asked. Why was I given these great gifts? What am I supposed to do with them?
THE ANSWER WAS I WAS GIVEN THESE EXPERIENCES SO THAT I COULD WITHSTAND THE RECENT “GASLIGHTING” CAMPAIGN AGAINST ME AND ALL OTHER CAMPAIGNS FROM LUCIFER AND THE REBELLION THAT WOULD SHAKE OR EVEN TARNISH THE LIGHT OF CREATOR GOD I CARRY. I WAS TAKEN TO SEE ALL THESE THINGS SO THAT WHEN THOSE WHO WOULD COME AT ME TO CONVINCE ME I AM WRONG ABOUT CREATOR GOD, THE ONE CALLED HOLY, AND JESUS OF NAZARETH THE CHRIST OF GOD, THEIR ROLE IN OUR EVERY DAY LIVES, THE FACT WE ARE IN THE TRIBULATION AS SPOKEN OF BY THE PROPHETS, AND THAT WE ARE GOING HOME, WILL NOT EVER BE ABLE TO SHAKE ME AWAY FROM WHAT IS REAL AND TRUE. THEY CAN NEVER CONVINCE ME THAT IS NOT REAL. BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN IT WITH MY OWN EYES. I HAVE EXPERIENCED LIFE OUTSIDE AND AWAY FROM THIS PRESENT DARKNESS IN THE REBELLION. I AM WITNESS TO THE TRUTH OF IT. JUST LIKE MY FOOT AT THE END OF MY LEG WAS CRUSHED. THE PHYSICAL REALITY OF IT MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO CONVINCE ME I WAS JUST BEING A BABY AND A GOLD BRICK AND I JUST NEEDED TO WALK ON THAT FOOT AND GET OVER MYSELF. NO SIREEE. MY FOOT WAS CRUSHED. THE NERVES DAMAGED TO THE POINT THE FOOT FELT PLASTIC. I HAD THE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE IN FRONT OF ME.
JUST LIKE THE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF THE TRUE CONDITION OF MY CRUSHED FOOT WAS IN FRONT OF ME. NOW, IN OUR TIME, IN THE TIME OF THE TRIBULATION, WHEN THEY BEGIN GASLIGHTING AGAINST THE TRUTH OF CREATOR GOD AND THE ONE CALLED HOLY AND JESUS OF NAZARETH THE CHRIST OF GOD AND THE TRUTH THAT THIS CREATION OF REBELLION IS PASSING AWAY, WE WHO ARE TRUE SONS ARE GOING HOME, WILL NEVER BE TAKEN AWAY FROM ME.
I AM A LIGHT IN AND TO THE WORLD. A BEACON ON A HILL. THAT IS WHAT I AM SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THE EXPERIENCES GIVEN ME OF THE NEW HEAVEN AND THE NEW EARTH.
IT IS REAL. THEY ARE THE LIE AND THEY ARE THE LIARS. HOLD FAST TO WHAT IS REAL. KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE GOAL. PROTECT YOUR EYE GATES AND YOUR EAR GATES. PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD. NEVER DOUBT. NEVER FEAR. YOU WHO ARE TRUE SONS ARE RIGHT.
