Robert: A Victory In Love
This story is about two real people whose names
are not Susan and Robert. The lives of these real people served as n
inspiration for this story. Because the lives of these two real people
were a blessing to others and as well as a blessing to God, we present
this story to bless your life and the life of all those you will ever
We present to you a transcript of one of the
interactions between NewOne and OldOne, angels whose names indicate
their respective state of service to our Lord.
OldOne: NewOne, look into your portal. You will see
in your portal two people named Susan and Robert. Susan and Robert are a
blessing to the Lord, and in turn, the Lord has blessed both of them.
Susan was attacked by the darkness at an early age. The darkness saw her
potential and tried to stop her from realizing her contribution to the
NewOne: Why didn't we stop the darkness from
attacking Susan in the first place?
OldOne: Susan wanted to know that as well. The
answer is we cannot change reality or we cannot change the rules of
reality until the Lord Jesus returns to walk the earth. Until Jesus
returns, the Father wants every attack by the darkness to be used in
love for His glory. We use many agents in our work on the earth. We
place invisible seeds of influence in people's lives. Nearly all of our
work planting seeds of influence is done without people knowing what we
are doing. Some of our seeds germinate, others do not. How many of our
seeds germinate depend upon how much faith a person has in the Father,
the Son, and the Holy Spirit. A person of little faith is a person with
arid ground. A person of great faith is like fertile ground. The greater
a person's faith, the greater their responsiveness to our influence
planting will be. In Susan's case, the Father called her father into the
ministry. Her father's responsiveness would, in part, lay the spiritual
groundwork for Susan's success later on. Her father's responsiveness to
the Lord's calling was, in part, the work of his parents or Susan's
grandparents. In our seed planting activities, we work for generations
to get a result in the future from persons yet unborn.
NewOne: What if the seed planting does not work?
What if people ignore the seeds of influence?
OldOne: Tragically, it happens all the time.
Unfortunately, when people ignore God and ignore His will in their life,
chaos and disaster will surely visit. In Susan's life, in the life of
her parents, grandparents, on back into generations past on both sides
of her family, people were receptive to the love of God. Their
receptiveness got passed on from one generation to the next. The same
was also true of Robert's heritage although his heritage of faith was
not as visible or vocal as was Susan's. In Robert's and Susan's life, we
had to start our work several generations back in their family history.
To get those earlier generations on our side, we had to start in still
earlier generations back in each person's family history.
NewOne: What if one of the persons in a family
history does not respond to us? What happens in the future of that
OldOne: When that happens, we try to make up for it
in other ways by introducing influences into a person's life from
neighbors, friends, teachers, doctors, anyone possible to try and make
up the difference when we have someone who lacks faith. The intricate
nature of all this seed planting and influencing of persons is so
complex, only the Father has the mind and capability to do the eventual
placement of His love and power in any person's life. Although all
persons are given the same amount of our influence, many persons do not
respond the Father's love. Unbeknownst to either Susan or Robert,
thousands of people had seeds planted by us in the history of their
lives. When the darkness struck Susan, at least some of the seeds
germinating would give Susan the kind of support and background she
would need to multiply the Light in the face of certain darkness. We
knew there would be an attack by the darkness but we did not know the
specific time, place, or substance of the attack on her life. Each
person is singled out by the darkness and we single out each person for
our blessings and unseen influences. We take great pains in making sure
people do not know when and how we intervene in their life.
NewOne: Why don't we want people to know we are
working for them? Wouldn't knowing more about angels working in a
person's life be of benefit to a person?
OldOne: Sometimes we do let people know we
intervene but this knowledge is extremely rare. If people knew what we
did and how we work, they could become dependent upon us. In some cases
people can begin to worship us instead of worshipping the Father. We do
not want people being dependent. God is glorified most when people are
strong and spiritually healthy. God is not glorified when people are
spiritually weak and dependent.
In Robert's case, we singled him out as soon as we
saw what was happening to Susan. Of course, neither of them knew each
other at the time. When Robert first encountered Susan in a college
library, we did have to goad Robert to make him irritated at Susan's
shyness, fear of contact, and fear of disapproval. Susan's affliction
put upon her by the darkness made her want to avoid contact with others.
Although most people would have just overlooked Susan, in Robert's case,
he saw past her exterior afflictions and we got him to be irritated
because he could not see what she was really like. We made him irritated
enough he actually confronted Susan about her shyness and fear of
contact. At first, this confrontation was shocking to Susan. However,
with the groundwork we did in her family, we knew she would see Robert's
confrontation in a loving way and not as an attack to shame her or
humiliate her. Robert's confrontation was an epiphany event for Susan.
From that moment on, her world started turning, light started to filter
in, and all the groundwork of love done by us in her ancestors,
neighbors, friends, and acquaintances of people in generations past,
people she never knew, began to take hold. The darkness had not only put
a physical affliction upon Susan, the darkness had put lies,
half-truths, and misconceptions into Susanís mind about what others
thought of her.
NewOne: How did you get Susan to turn away from the
grip of the darkness? How did you get her to see and know the truth?
OldOne: Oh, that was pretty easy although we
didnít have much to do with it. Susanís darkness was really
shattered when Robert first kissed her. The darkness had no chance after
Robert first kissed her.
NewOne: What if you had not gotten Robert to
confront or kiss Susan?
OldOne: Of course, Robert was not aware of this,
and other people are not aware of this, but we had a plan B, C, D, E,
and F in mind for Robert. Fortunately for us, Susan was a beautiful
young woman so our job was made a great deal easier by her beauty. In
Susan's case, the Father achieved one of His ultimate victories.
Initially, on her life track, Susan became a physical therapist and
worked with people who needed assistance in their life like she did. In
the beginning of his career, Robert became an accountant and was very
successful in landing new accounts.
NewOne: What would you have done if Susan and
Robert had made the wrong decision about their vocations?
OldOne: Actually that is what happened. We wanted
both of them to become teachers so the Lord's influence in their life
could be multiplied a thousand-fold through others. Because Susan and
Robert were sensitive to our influence, although neither of them would
have strongly testified to being sensitive to us at the time, they began
to position their life more toward teaching the longer they worked in
these other vocations.
NewOne: What if neither of them had decided
to become a teacher? Then what would you have done?
OldOne: In our work, we take losses. With
some people, we take enormous losses. The more we can influence a
person's ancestral line, the less of a loss we usually take. There is
only so much we can do in a person's life. We cannot take over a
person's life. We cannot live out a person's life for them. We cannot
influence a person to the point where they have no free will. All we can
do is plant the seeds of influence. By eventually pursuing a teaching
profession, Susan and Robert directly influenced thousands of others.
Those thousands would go on to influence thousands more. Susan and
Robert, although not aware of how much influence they had upon the
kingdom of God, would have a major impact upon God's work upon the
earth. We used Robert and Susan to plant God's seeds of influence in
their students just as we used others to plant seeds of influence in
Robert and Susan's life.
NewOne: Did you get Susan and Robert to make
statements of faith, to evangelize, to make direct statements about God?
OldOne: No, not in this case. Not everyone in the
world is chosen to be an evangelist. Some people do nothing more than
place holding. Place holding is where a person does not add or subtract
in regard to the Father's work. However, we got Susan and Robert
committed to making sure people did not fold up and go home when they
were attacked by the darkness. We instilled in Susan and Robert a
steadfast and unrelenting spirit in the face of an attack by the
darkness. In Susan's case, we were able to introduce enough godly
influences into her life and the life of her ancestors, she did not just
stand against the darkness, but she actually began attacking the
darkness in providing healing and wholeness to others.
NewOne: Couldn't you just avoid all this ancestral
influencing and use a new convert to get done what you need to get done?
OldOne: In doing our work, an important factor is
the work we do in a person's ancestral lineage. By placing love,
kindness, understanding, worship, and faithfulness in the lives of a
person's ancestors, we are more able to influence the outcome of the
lives of persons in later generations. In addition, we can remain more
unseen and more anonymous by working in generations before someone is
born. Generally speaking, we work in the past to produce the present.
Robert began to love Susan even before Robert knew much about her
history or her life. In his life, we made love, kindness, understanding,
worship, and faithfulness the foundation of people in his ancestral
heritage like we did in Susan's ancestors.
NewOne: Isn't the intent of a person more important
then being victorious in life?
OldOne: No, we want victory. Many people on the
earth want victory and they have godly intentions. However, wanting
victory and godly intentions can still bring about devastating losses.
In earthly terms, we want the goods delivered. The victory achieved in
the life of Susan and Robert was a true victory for God. In addition,
both Susan and Robert had freedom of choice about every matter.
Fortunately for us, the influences of their heritage came into play,
their own spiritual sensitivities came into play, and those influences
molded and shaped Susanís and Robert's responses to events in their
life and work.
NewOne: Shouldn't people be aware we are trying to
OldOne: Technically speaking, we do not do the
influencing, we just try to arrange things around a personís life. The
Father is really the person who provides the power or influence. All
people should to be receptive to the Lordís attempts to influence them
without knowing He or we are doing the seed planting. Some people refuse
to accept God's reality. Some people refuse to accept the power of the
love of the Father or the dynamic of Christ's love in the world.
Tragically, some people love the darkness. Some people choose the
darkness over the light. In Susan and Robert's life, they choose the
Light. If either of them, or if a substantial number of people in their
ancestral heritage had chosen the darkness, the outcome of their
respective lives would have been tragically different. The darkness
sought to make victims. In Robert and Susan's life, what the darkness
got was not victims but victors. Each person contributes to the power
and love of God by pointing their life and soul in the direction of God.
The more devout people are, the more they contribute to God's plan for
their life and contribute to the life other persons. The love of God and
the love of other persons brings about a realization of God's power in a
person's life. Robert's love for Susan gave her power, strength, and
hope. Without love there is weakness, powerlessness, and hopelessness.
Susan was a person of faith. Her faith was tested early on in her life.
Susanís faith maximized our influence in her life. Through her,
Susan's faith multiplied the love of God in the lives of thousands of
NewOne: What was Susan's greatest achievement for
OldOne: Susan's greatest achievement was in
learning how much she made up her own issue about her affliction. Susan,
like millions of others, accepted lies and untruths from the darkness
about her affliction and about how others saw her. Susan, like others,
made up, out of thin air, most of her pain about her issue. This is not
unusual. As a general rule, many of the issues people face in life are
made up. Although the issues are seemingly real, much of the time the
issues people face are lies fed to them by satanic evil. People often
have issues tear them apart. What these people do not realize is the
product of their thinking and imagination is not only unreal, but the
product of their dark thinking and imagination is also an evil lie. When
Susan realized Robert loved her, and when Susan realized she had nothing
to fear from others, her issue of fear and anxiety melted away. Because
of her freedom from the evil oneís lies, Susan went on to not only
lead a productive life, she glorified God by attacking the darkness in
her work with others.
NewOne: What the story about Susan and Robert means
we are to plant seeds of influence in a personís life so when darkness
strikes, they are to use the darkness to glorify God, even when it seems
there is no way to use tragedy or darkness. Using the darkness against
the darkness is one of Godís greatest victories.
OldOne: You are correct, NewOne.
Matthew 13:3 Then he told them many things in
parables, saying: "A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was
scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and
ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil.
It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun
came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no
root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the
plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a
crop--a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 He who has ears,
let him hear." 10 The disciples came to him and asked, "Why do
you speak to the people in parables?" 11 He replied, "The
knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you,
but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an
abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from
him. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables: "Though seeing,
they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. 14 In
them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: " 'You will be ever
hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never
perceiving. 15 For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly
hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they
might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their
hearts and turn, and I would heal them.' 16 But blessed are your eyes
because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17 For I tell you the
truth, many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see but
did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it. 18
"Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 When anyone
hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil
one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed
sown along the path. 20 The one who received the seed that fell on rocky
places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy.
21 But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or
persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away. 22 The one
who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears
the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth
choke it, making it unfruitful. 23 But the one who received the seed
that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it.
He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was
sown." 24 Jesus told them another parable: "The kingdom of
heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while
everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat,
and went away. 26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the
weeds also appeared. 27 "The owner's servants came to him and said,
'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds
come from?' 28 " 'An enemy did this,' he replied. "The
servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?' 29 "
'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling the weeds, you may
root up the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the
harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the
weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and
bring it into my barn.' " 31 He told them another parable:
"The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and
planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all your seeds,
yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a
tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches."
33 He told them still another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is
like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour
until it worked all through the dough." 34 Jesus spoke all these
things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without
using a parable. 35 So was fulfilled what was spoken through the
prophet: "I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things
hidden since the creation of the world." 36 Then he left the crowd
and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said,
"Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field." 37 He
answered, "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. 38
The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the
kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who
sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the
harvesters are angels. 40 "As the weeds are pulled up and burned in
the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will
send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything
that causes sin and all who do evil. 42 They will throw them into the
fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their
Father. He who has ears, let him hear. 44 "The kingdom of heaven is
like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again,
and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. 45
"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine
pearls. 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold
everything he had and bought it. (NIV)
