I have to confess, that I didn't always understand the Holy Ghost very well. I invited it into my heart to reside, but then tended to ignore this God-given resource. When I was in a room, speaking to one or more people of spiritual matters and felt the room become charged, electrical currents in the air, my level of consciousness raised - I thought this was because of me - because of my understanding. I see now it was the Holy Ghost all along. But I am still learning. I think our first step toward preparation for "end times" is how allowing the "lies" to rule our culture, should be literally torn up by it's roots. It is the "lie" we tell that opens us to evil.
