“Depression – 101” …Blog.

“Depression – 101” …Blog.

*** (Romans 11:3-to-6) “Lord, they have killed your prophets; and demolished your altars. I am the only one left; and they are trying to take my life.”
(Rom 11:4) But what was the Divine [God] reply to him? “I [God] have reserved for myself 7,000 people who have not knelt to worship Baal.”
(Rom 11:5) So it is at the present time: there is a remnant, chosen by grace.
(Rom 11:6) But if this is by grace, then it is no longer on the basis of works. Otherwise, grace would no longer be grace.

*** (1Kings 19:9-to-13) And he [Elijah] came there to a cave and stayed there. And behold, the Word of the LORD Jehovah came to him; and He said to him, What are you doing here, Elijah?
(1Ki 19:10) And he said, I have been very zealous for the LORD Jehovah the God of Hosts. For the sons of Israel have forsaken Your covenant; thrown down Your altars; and have slain Your prophets with the sword. And I, I alone, am left. And they seek to take my life away.
(1Ki 19:11) And He said, Go forth and stand on the mountain before the LORD Jehovah. And, behold, the LORD Jehovah passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains, and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD Jehovah. But the LORD Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind was an earthquake, but the LORD Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
(1Ki 19:12) And after the earthquake was a fire, but the LORD Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire: was a still, small voice.
(1Ki 19:13) And it happened when Elijah heard, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out, and stood at the cave entrance. And behold, a voice came to him and said, What are you doing here, Elijah?

*** (Psalms 46:10) Be still; and know that I am God! I will be praised among the nations; I will be praised in the earth.

Where does ‘Depression’ come from…? Sorry No, it is not a demon that can be exorcized! There are two places it comes from. First an electro-chemical imbalance in the brain which affects the ‘Endocrine’ system. Only a Medical Doctor can ‘test & analyses’ this. The other one is ‘part & parcel’ of your… “OWN Thought Processes!” …“I want ‘What’ I want & ‘When’ I want it! Anything outside of those ‘Parameters’: may cause depression. It goes something like this. I asked Santa for a “Lamborghini” for Christmas and he did not bring me one! …LOL! [Joke!] Now I know that Santa Clause if “NOT Real!” That is an oversimplification of the problem, but ‘You’ understand what I am speaking about, don’t ‘You’? We often ‘Plan’ out our lives… but then ‘Things Happen’… which we have absolutely no control over. We may lose our job, our mate, one or more of our children and the list goes “on & On & ON!” There is a sort of a “Short Circuit”… in our “Cognitive-Thinking-Reasoning Processes”. We cannot seem to put “Humpty Dumpty” back together again! No matter how hard ‘You’ try. And ‘You’ do try to… “Don’t ‘You’?”

Humpty Dumpty

*** (Job 2:4-to-10) And Satan answered the LORD Jehovah and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man has he will give for his life.
(Job 2:5) But indeed put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse You to Your face.
(Job 2:6) And the LORD Jehovah said to Satan, Behold, he is in your hand, but save his life.
(Job 2:7) And Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD Jehovah and struck Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to the top of his head.
(Job 2:8) And he took a broken piece of pottery to scrape himself with. And he sat down among the ashes.
(Job 2:9) 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. [Isaiah 45:5-6-7]

*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are not discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out, our inner man is being renewed: day by day. [John 15:1-2-3]

*** *** (2Corinthains 10:3-to-6) Of course, we are living in the flesh; but we ‘do not’ fight in a fleshly way.
(2Cor 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’ arguments
(2Cor 10:5) and ‘every’ proud obstacle; that is ‘raised against’ the knowledge of God; -> taking ‘every thought’ captive; -> in order ‘to obey’ Christ.
(2Cor 10:6) We are ready; to punish [Proverbs 28:13; ‘every’ act of disobedience [1John 1:5-to-10]; when your ‘obedience’ [James 1:22 & Luke 6:46] is complete.

Are ‘You’ really in control of “Anything”… or is your “Human control of Life”… just an “Illusion?” Did ‘You’ ever wonder why the Holy Word of God says… “The Just will live by Faith?” Part of depression is that ‘You’ are “Not”… “Completely Trusting”… “God & His Holy Word!” Have ‘You’ ever studied those “Others” of “Hebrews 11:36-to-40?” Or those “Seven Thousand [7,000]” that God had chosen as His… during the time of “Famine” in the OT days of Elijah? When ‘You’… “Read & Study”… His Holy Word; it becomes a part of your “Cognitive Reasoning Thinking Processes”. When 2+2=5… then ‘You’ begin to realize that He is in control and what “Mark 6:38” really means. Why do ‘You’ think the Scriptures say… “But by every Word of GOD?”

*** (John 3:3) Jesus answered and said unto him; Verily, verily, I say unto you: Except a man be born again; he ‘cannot’ enter into the kingdom of God.
“Christian or ‘Born Again’ – 101”…Blog.  

*** (Matthew 13:19) When anyone hears the Word of the kingdom; and does ‘Not’ understand it; then the wicked one [Satan] comes; and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown by the wayside.

*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. [Matthew 4:4]

*** (Deuteronomy 8:2-3) And you shall remember all the way which the LORD Jehovah your God led you these forty years in the wilderness in order to humble you, to prove you, to know what is in your heart; whether you would keep His commandments –> or Not.
(Deut 8:3) And He humbled you and allowed you to hunger, and then He fed you with manna, which you did not know, neither did your fathers know it, so that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of the LORD Jehovah man shall live.

*** (Hebrews 10:38) Now, "the Just shall live by Faith. But if he draws back, My soul shall have no pleasure in him."

*** (Hebrews 13:5)  Let your way of life be without the love of money, and be content with such things as you have, for He [God] has said, "Not at all will I leave you, not at all will I forsake you, never!"

*** (Micah 6:8) He [God] has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do Justice; and to love Mercy; and to Walk Humbly; with your God?

*** (2Chronicles 12:14) And he did the Evil: –>because he did ‘Not’: –> prepare his heart; to seek the LORD.

*** (Ezra 7:10) For Ezra had prepared his heart –> to seek the Law of Jehovah; –> and to do it; –>and to teach statutes and judgments: in Israel.

*** (Psalms 119:11) I have hidden Your Word in my heart; so that I might not sin against You [Lord].

Faith & Fear… “Cannot Reside” in the Human MIND… at the ‘Same’ TIME…!

“Suicide – 101”…Blog.         

Where do ‘You’ go from here…? Perhaps it is a matter or ‘Reprograming’ your thought process. And Yes, I have suffered from depression. Especially after cancer surgery and radiation treatment! I immediately flushed all the meds I was prescribed. Then I simply used a mixture of “Half Apple Juice / half Wine”. [1Timothy 5:23] Do ‘You’ meet with Christ Jesus in His Holy Word Daily? He rose early in the morning and met with His Heavenly Father, God! [Mark 1:35] This has been my practice for a number of years, Yes, even when working “8-10-12+” hour days. Simply get up “One Hour Early”… and meet with Him. When His Holy Word starts to work on your “Mind & Heart & Soul”… thing will change! Have ‘You’ ever read the promises in… “Psalms 19:7-to-14”…? How about Psalms “119:97-to-104”…? Do ‘You’ memorize Scripture…? Surely ‘You’ cannot be ‘Depressed’… and recite the Scriptures ‘You’ have memorized!

*** (2Corinthains 4:16) That's why we are not discouraged. No, even if our outer man is wearing out, our inner man is being renewed: day by day. [John 15:1-2-3]

*** (Mark 1:35) And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, HE [Jesus] went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. [worshiped]

*** (1Samuel 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the: Word of the LORD.    

*** (Romans 8:24-to-28) For we are saved by hope. But hope that is seen is not hope; for what anyone sees, why does he also hope for it?
(Rom 8:25) But if we hope for that which we do not see, then we wait for it with patience.
(Rom 8:26) Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
(Rom 8:27) And He searching the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
(Rom 8:28) And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
