“FAITH – ‘vs’ – ‘Anything Else’ – 101”…Blog.
*** (1Peter 1:6-7) In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you have to suffer various kinds of trials,
(1Pet 1:7) so that the genuineness of your faith, which is more valuable than gold that perishes when it is tested by fire, may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
How about… “Depression & Anxiety & Fear & Perplexity & Confusion &… ‘Any Thing’… “Else”…?”
*** (Romans 8:9) You, however, = are not of the flesh = but under the control of the [Holy] Spirit, = since God's Spirit = lives in you. = And if = ‘anyone’ = does ‘not’ have the Spirit of Christ, = he does ‘not’ belong = to Him.
The Anointing – 101
Physiology, Physicists’ & Their Practitioners… Simply use their ‘worldly’ philosophy… To ‘Explain Away’… SIN/SINS…! They “Label” such afflictions as mental deficiencies… and often prescribe “Pharmacy ‘controlled’ Medication”… to their patients. One bit if history that “MOST”… do not know… is about WW2 [1939-1945]. All the “Mental Institutions” were ‘over flowing’; packed with patients and residents. As soon as the news that Hitler had invaded Europe… they were ‘Immediately Voluntarily’ emptied; by the “Attendees”… leaving less than “Three Percent”… remaining! “97%”… did not even ‘need’… to be there…!
Now, before someone objects… I must state emphatically that; there are ‘genuine medical problems’ in the endocrine and CNS [central nervous system]… that need to be treated by special medications. I am ‘not’ speaking about those; but the myriad of maladies… ‘Imagined’ by those; that really have ‘nothing’ wrong with them… But… “Stink-In Think-In!”
*** (Luke 5:31-32) And Jesus = answered and said to them, = Those who are sound = do not need a physician, = but [only] = those who are sick.
(Luke 5:32) I [Jesus] = did not come = to call the righteous = to repentance, = but sinners [Romans 3:10-11].
*** (Matthew 6:24) “No one = can serve = “Two Masters”. = For either he = will hate the one = and = love the other, = or else = he will hold to the one = and = despise the other. = You ‘cannot’ = serve God = and mammon.
The Human Mind… “Cannot Entertain”… Faith… and…. Fear, Depression, or ‘any’ other thing… at the Same Time! ‘One’… =or= ‘the Other’… Rules the Heart, Mind and Soul…!
*** (Luke 16:13) “No” servant = can serve = “Two Masters”. = For either he will = hate the one = and love the other, = or else = he will hold to the one = and despise the other. = You ‘cannot’ = serve God = and mammon.
*** (Psalms 56:3) When = I am afraid = I will trust = in You [Lord God].
*** (Habakkuk 3:17-18-19) Though the fig tree shall not blossom, = and = fruit is not on the vines; = the labor of the olive fails, = and = the fields yield ‘no’ food. = The flock is cut off = from the fold, = and = no herd is in the stalls;
(Hab 3:18) yet = I will rejoice = in Jehovah, = I will joy = in the God = of my salvation.
(Hab 3:19) Jehovah the Lord is my strength, = and = He will make my feet like hinds' feet, = and = He will make me to walk on my high places. = To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.
In the Bible book of Habakkuk… their ‘Nation’ was facing ‘complete’ economic devastation and ‘capture’ by the Heathen. Yet the writer… viewed ‘all’ that; with only… “One Thought” in mind… “Jehovah the Lord is my strength!” Although he recognized the failure of all those things they trusted in… he ‘knew’ that; all that was… was ‘Nothing, without God!’ For the NT believer… who is “Born Again”, that is; “Born from Above… by the “Holy Spirit of God”… they have that “Supernatural Power from God”… to ‘wholly believe’; His Holy Word! Many speak about those ‘Promises of God’… but seldom ‘claim these’…!
*** (1Thsssalonians 3:4) For verily, = when we were with you, = we told you before = that we should suffer = tribulation; = even as it came to pass, = and you know.
*** (1Peter 4:15-15) But let = none of you = suffer = as a murderer, = or a thief, = or an evildoer, = or a meddler in the affairs of others.
(1Pet 4:16) But if = one suffers as a Christian, = let him not be ashamed, = but let him glorify God = because of this.
*** (Job 2:9-10) And his wife said to him, = Do you still hold to your integrity? = Curse God = and die!
(Job 2:10) But he said to her, = You = speak as one of the foolish ones speak. = What? = Shall we receive good = at the hand of God, = and = shall we not receive evil? = In all this = Job did not sin = with his lips.
Today ‘MANY’ Christians… ‘Blame’… Satan for; ‘all’ their problems & trials & temptations. The problem is not him… “But US!” Because they… “Don’t Know the Holy Word of God”… and what it really says; they simply believe ‘anything’ that someone says… “Without Checking” out what the ‘WORD’… “Says First!” How many of you… ‘check’ what the Word says… when reading my blogs… to see if they are; ‘Valid?’
*** (Acts 17:11) And these = were more noble than those of Thessalonica, = in that they received the Word = with ‘all’ readiness of mind = and = searched the Scriptures = ‘daily’ = to see if those things = were so [or not].
*** (James 1:14-15-16) But = ‘each one’ = is tempted = by his lusts, = being drawn away = and = seduced by them.
(Jas 1:15) Then = when lust has conceived, = it brings forth sin. = And sin, = when it is fully formed, = brings forth death.
(Jas 1:16) Do not = ‘err’, = my beloved brothers.
*** (Romans 6:16) Do you = ‘not know’ = that to whom = you ‘yield’ yourselves = as ‘slaves’ for obedience, = you are ‘slaves’ = to him = whom you obey; = whether it is of sin = to death, = or = of obedience = to righteousness.
*** (2Corinthians 10:3-to-6) Of course, = we are living in the flesh [our body], = but we do not fight [war] = in a fleshly way.
(2Co 10:4) For the weapons = of our warfare = are not those of the flesh. = Instead, = they have the power of God = to demolish fortresses. = We tear down = [contradictory] arguments
(2Co 10:5) and = every proud obstacle = that is raised = ‘against’ = the knowledge [Word] of God, = taking = ‘every’ = thought captive = in order = to ‘obey’ Christ.
(2Co 10:6) We are ready = to punish [Proverbs 28:13] = every act of disobedience = when your obedience is complete [1John 1:5-to-10].
Where does ‘One’… go from here..? When one knows what the Holy Word of God says… they can then… Simply Change = their “Stink-In Think-In” = for… “It is Written…!” Isn’t that what Christ Jesus did… when confronted by Satan; after His 40-day fast…? When you have thoughts of insecurity… do you invite them in to “Take Up Residence”… in your ‘Mind?’ Remember… ‘You’… serve the Master you Love! You cannot serve the Truth of the Scriptures… and then entertain thoughts of… “Depression, Anger, Hate, Lust and ‘Any Other’… Thought!”
…. Whose… Your… “Daddy” [Abba]….? ? ? … “WHO”…? ? ?
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him [Satan]; saying, = It is written that = “man shall not live by bread alone, = but by ‘every’ = Word of God.
*** (John 15:3) Now = you are clean = through the Word = which I [Jesus] = have spoken to you.
*** (Ephesians 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation, = and = the sword of the Spirit, = which is = the Word of God,
*** (Matthew 13:19) When = “Anyone” = hears = the Word of the kingdom = and = does not understand [believe] it, = then the wicked one comes = and catches away = that [Word] which was sown = in his heart. = This is the seed sown by the wayside.
… ‘Not’… to “Decide”… ‘Is’, to… “Decide!”
Simply take the “Scriptures”… in this blog, and make them a part of your… “Thought Life!” There are ‘many’ more… that you can lean on; but You have to find them… “For Yourselves!” Do you understand your Position in Christ…? Well then continue to “Read ‘Over & Over’ Again”… “Romans chapter 8:All!”. Did you know that Christ Jesus… Prayed for “All Those”… that are His…? Simply, “Read ‘Over & Over’ Again”… “John chapter 17:All!” Build you mind into a ‘depository’ of the Word and… ‘Obeying’ “2Corinthians 10:3-to-6”… “… Every Thought to the Obedience of Christ!”
*** (James 1:22) Keep on being = “Doers of the Word”, = and = ‘Not’ merely hearers = who = “Deceive” themselves.
