Natty, can you explain that one again if you don't mind? I would like to know what God's message was to you and why you chose to stop.

well breddah, it a very long story but i suppose the a summary and the end of it would answer you question.
what i meant by "being that way" was that i would smoke ganja all day long everyday and not be in a bad state of mind i worked and prayed and operated quite normally the ganja didn't take me to another place

heres what happened: (extremely short version)
i had been losing many things first i totalled i truck which but i wasn't really worried about that i still kept peddling ganja with i cellphone and a skateboerd , then i parents kick I out of the house (for the third time) so i move into i freinds house his father and he always partook of the ganja with I, but one day they decide to stop and ask i to stop with them i said no so they kick i out as well. then i live on the streets for some time but in the winter time in california it is not to cool having to sleep on park benches. i have money then and plenty ganja to smoke but no warm place to rest i head. so i parents say found a place for i to stay and some of their and i freinds take me out there and it is a rehab home i figure i will wait it out there and then be able to go home eventually, once the parents are happy no intention quit smoke the ganja nothing anyone would say could convince i that i should stop even though i had already lost just about everything because i wouldn't, now some might say that is babylon trying to oppress i but the next thing that happen could not have been no babylon. i been in the rehab for some weeks and i start get real bad dandruff and the hair of i little dreadlocks begin to fall out, it get so bad that i have to cut i hair. as the razor goin over i head i thought about apostle paul and him take a nazerite vow , i felt that Jah want i life for His service as a nazerite for the rest of i life and as my locks fell to the ground i felt Jah urging me to make a solemn promise as part of i nazerite vow to never again take the ganja or any other drug again for the entirity of i vow, this includes alcohol, narcotics including those issued by the doctor, and caffine(no caffiine means no chocalate sodas coffee lots of things). i get a feeling swell up inside i and then i sing this vow out unto Jah seeming to solidify this commitment. and then i begin to let my locks grow back out again. from this point i devote my time there to study the hola scrips. as i am doing this i find some scritpure that go agsinst the use of ganja one is

Romans 13:1"Obey the government, for God is the one who put it there. All governments have been placed in power by God. 2So those who refuse to obey the laws of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow."

i also read other scripture that talked about being sober and as i explained before the greek shows that the word sober is not just talking about abstaining from alcohol.
so thats what happened, i made choice to quit smoking ganja before i even thought or knew that the bible said it is wrong. i dont reallt feel like i ever did anything or made any choice it seems like it all just happened, like i human flesh had no part in the change it was Jah spirit working with i spirit to do such a thing and hold i to it. i am still a nazerite to this day two years later and have upheld i vow and will for he rest of i days. now still jammin reggae music and teaching those who want to learn about Jah and He gave i the opportunity to go to the mother land twice the second time to I-thiopia.
but thats other stories

i hope that iman have answered the question

Jah Blessins

TWAN- I have a question for you.................I am aware of the bible verse that says to obey the gubment. But what about the twisted laws our gubment has? Do we obey them as well? I think not! What are your thoughts?

the only time i think it is justified to break the law is if a specific law is forcing us to disobey the laws and precepts of Jah. and if that is the case the person breaking the law of the land will still probably suffer the lands consequences fo that disobedience.

which laws specifically did you have in mind?

Every Ganja Smoker will see Jesus Christ. He is the Government and authority. Fornicators, battyman, lezbian, sodomite, hypocrites, evil leaders will be the sorry ones. Jesus is coming in a cloud of smoke, let it be preached. The Cloudy Pillar will destroy satans kingdoms. Jesus is Lord and none other. Leave out of babylon and partake not of her sins. she is the habitation of every foul and unclean spirit. STUDY!!!!!Healing of The Nations with no condemnation.

everyone on day will see christ but what will they see him as Lord and savior of or judge sending them to eternal damnation. be careful with your statement cause i know plenty ganja smoker that are firmly set on the fact that Iyesus was a man like you and me. now they see him but not for what he is

I agree that many say they see him as a man. However I cannot backbite my sayings. I am not a hypocrite, Ganja fe Bun. Thats my life. Perfect. I am not of this world so it will not be accepted. When I lose my virginity maybe I will stop, but still...Ganja fe Bun, Give Thanks for all things in His name.
no more pearls mi a give way....MORE LOVE< UNITE GODS CHILDREN, THE BABES AND SUCKLING WILL PERFECT JAH PRAISES. YESSUS LIVETH EVERMORE,OMNIPOTENT, OMNIPRESENT, and THE PREESSENCE
mi nah put Ganja above him, moderation.
