MEANING OF BEING HOLY

BEING HOLY What is the meaning: being Holy?

Many people think holiness is only for a certain few chosen ‘saints’, but this is not the truth.  God has created each and every one of us for holiness. 

I know it isn’t ‘cool’ these days for many people in the world to hear teaching about God, let alone Jesus.  Mmmmmmm.  Whether it’s cool or not, the fact is still that we are all empty, rattling tin cups when we look elsewhere for the thing our heart truly desires and was created for.  Love. 

You’re worth it’!  You are that one sinner that heaven waits to rejoice over, whether you know it or not.

Please don’t wait ’til you’re faced with your mortality to contemplate this fact.  Please don’t miss the entire lesson of your life here on earth – seeking God and growing in love.  God is an atom bomb of love! 

Being holy

Being holy is having a relationship with the living God! Then we must daily live a set-apart life, not trying to “blend in” with the world, but instead living according to God’s Word as we study the Bible and grow in it — doing God’s will.

“I will be your God, and you will be My people,” says Yahweh.                                                                                                     Leviticus 26:12; Hebrews 8:10

In 1 Peter 1: 15-16, Peter writes to believers, “like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.” not by coercion or out of duty like an abstract action but out of real love for God.

We have a relationship with the living God! Then we must daily live a set-apart life, not trying to “blend in” with the world, but instead living according to God’s Word as we study the Bible and grow in it — doing God’s will.

We set ourselves apart by showing our joy, our peace, and our love. All three of these things come fully only from Christ, and thus those who are set apart by Christ and for Christ should be able to exemplify them to those who are not yet in Christ, but still of the World. I believe 1 Peter 3:15 says this: “But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect”

To be a Christian means far more than merely to believe in God—as if the Christian faith were reducible to a system of beliefs—it means to be united with Jesus in and through the Holy Spirit. “I no longer live, but Christ lives in me”, says Paul.  Galatians 2:20. Elsewhere, Paul tells us that our lives are “hidden with Christ in God” Colossians 3:3  Passages like these convey the mysterious, yet utterly real fact that, by virtue of our union with Jesus, we participate in the life of God: He dwells in us, and we dwell in him.

Vassula Reydon received a host of messages from God, which she compiled in her notebooks, called True Life in God. The following excerpt come from her conversations with Jesus:

“Divine Works are beyond human understanding; many souls do not respond to My Works for these souls seldom want to change.”

 “These souls are attached to the world, to what is material; even though they call themselves spiritual, they are not, since they cling on what they see with their physical eyes and touch with their body; they are stubborn, living aridly; their heart will not open to let My Divinity pour into them.”   

The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. ”                                                                                   1 Corinthians 2:14

“Yes, there are many factors that obstruct them from dwelling in My Light; I have said and will repeat again and again these very important words: “anyone who does not welcome the Kingdom of God like a little child, will never enter it”; be innocent, believe in a child-like-faith, then My Divine Light will encompass you and you, like a flower, will face the sun and open, allowing My Light to pour in you.”                                                                                                                                           Message to Vassula:  May 16, 1988

MEANING OF BEING HOLY

“Remember My Presence; do you know how much I desire this meditation upon My Presence? My Presence is also a very important Mystery that most of you seem to forget; meditate on My Presence; children, whom I love with an everlasting love, please Me by remembering My actual Presence; train yourselves by using these words, we, us, you and I, I and you, us; include Me in your activities, in your discussions and in your thoughts; respect My Presence, never forgetting that I am the Holy One; by remembering Me, you will sin less knowing and remembering that I Am with you.”  October 24, 1988 Continue reading MEANING OF BEING HOLY

REMOVING EVIL SPIRITS ASSURED

 WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

SATANIC HINDRANCE

It is not the people who are the problem, but the spiritual forces of evil that prevail in the world.

Satanic opposition is permitted by God.  Sometimes it is permitted so that it can be used by God. You may pay little attention to God until you suffer a time of distress; then you begin to hear what He is saying to you.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”                                                                                                 Ephesians 6:12

deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE YOURSELF?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall.

Deliverance of EVIL SPIRITS

Evil spirits of “sorcery or divination” were evident in the Old Testament: evil spirits are real in the New Testament but God has anointed us with new powers of deliverance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This is from a Précis: YOUR LIGHT SHINES IN MY DARKNESS      By Rev. Joseph Kane, OM

PHYSICAL HEALING ASSURED

PHYSICAL HEALING

Jesus Himself did not emphasize the miraculous; He saw physical healing as an ordinary aspect of what He called “works“, rather than miracles: a form of Good News in action. Healing of the spirit, emotion and body was all part of the message of salvation. So the apostles preached by healing and this continues today.

Physical Healing

Most people don’t know that God want to heal them:

“Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. ”                                                                                                                                           3 John 1:2

“They were anointed by the Holy Spirit with power; because God was within them, they cured all who had fallen into the power of the devil. “So the kingdom of God is not just words: it is power.             1 Corinthians 4:19,20 It is power to transform lives. It is Good News

PHYSICAL HEALING

Too many Christians are broken.  They are so broken that they cannot carry out the commandment to love God and their neighbor. Their inner turmoil prevents them from following God’s will.

Paradoxically, they may believe that this illness or brokenness is part of God’s will. So they don’t pray for a release for what God wants of them.

There is a mistaken belief, that you should carry your cross, as Jesus did.  Jesus does say to bear your cross, yet whenever He meets people who are sick, He cures them. This inconsistency can be explained by describing this cross as a cross of persecution, which comes outside of man.

The words healing and peace are synonymous with each other. You cannot have one without the other. The measure of healing is measured by the degree of peace we are feeling. 

Physical sickness in our bodies is caused by disease or accident.  Sickness may simply be a message to you to keep your life in balance. Fear, anger, and stress are all barriers to healing.  These states often create illness.  The word “dis-ease” means without ease. This means that mind, heart and spirit are meant to be in balance.

We must use the natural means of preserving health. Physicians are instruments that are ordinarily used to bring about healing for trauma.  Psychology helps to bring problems to the light for what they are. One can administer to the body the necessary supplements and the body will heal itself to an extent. Surgeons can physically repair the body. But the miracle of healing is still by Jesus’ stripes (whippings).

UNGODLY SOUL TIES: DELIVERANCE

UNGODLY SOUL TIE

SOUL TIES

The souls of men and women knit together with negative repercussions. Manipulation and control by another person can create negative soul ties. For example, One can become tormented by thoughts of a former lover. Sexual partners can pass multitudes of spirits on through sex.  The souls of ex-lovers knit together, even though they no longer see each other.

Other negative soul ties include homosexual partners or anyone who played a dominant role in one’s life like a former bosses or a dominant parent. Witchcraft creates heavy negative soul ties as well.

“Do you not realize that everything that goes into a person from outside cannot defile, since it enters not the heart but the stomach and passes out into the latrine? (Thus he declared all foods clean.) But what comes out of a person, that is what defiles. From within people, from their hearts, come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly. All these evils come from within and they defile.”                                                                                             Mark 7:18-23

One lady had a demon of addiction to alcohol and drugs, she also had problems with men and love. When praying for her the Lord impressed upon us to tell her to get rid of the picture she had of Marilyn Monroe at the head of her bed. What problems (demons) did Marilyn Monroe have? – drugs, alcohol, and problems with men and love.

“And when Shechem …, prince of the country, saw her, he seized her, lay with her, and humbled, defiled, and disgraced her. But his soul longed for and clung to Dinah, daughter of Jacob, and he loved the girl and spoke comfortingly to her young heart’s wishes.” Genesis 34:2,3  Not only is it sin but you form an ungodly soul tie with that person. This is just one reason to teach your children not to have sex before marriage.

UNGODLY SOUL TIES

If a friend or person controls you then there is an ungodly soul tie – mothers with daughters, fathers with sons, bosses and employees with each other, just to name a few. Control is one of the key evidences that an ungodly soul tie has been formed.

One testimony we have heard is with a man that was a boy scout. When it came time to throw out the items he had kept from his youth as a scout he could not throw them away. The soul tie to the object was broken in Jesus’ Name and then the person was able to see where the control was. Any “collection” that you have and you feel that you could never get rid of is a clue that an ungodly soul tie has developed.

Remember that ungodly soul ties can be formed no matter how much you love the Lord and worship Him and serve Him.

This then is a job for spiritual deliverance “in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.”                                                                                                                                              2 Corinthians 2:11

Sexual relationships outside of marriage…are also called “Soul Ties” and each one could be an entry point for demon spirits. The ties must be broken by confessing them as sin and choosing to be free from them. It would be best if you could do so by denouncing each one by name. The deliverance process involves canceling permission of evil spirits to be in our life. This prayer and renunciation will cancel consent that was granted through soul ties. The prayer can be something like this:

 “Father, I confess the sin of sexual relations outside of marriage. I renounce that sinful activity in Jesus’ Name. I call back that part of me that was given to another, and I refuse that part of another that may have come to me. I denounce soul ties with and choose to be free in Jesus Christ’ Name. Amen

We can form “Godly” as well as “ungodly” soul ties with our family, friends, pastors, other Christians, churches, movie stars, and rock stars and the list goes on.

When a soul tie is formed, a person takes on the characteristics of the person or thing it has formed that tie with. We have found that people form ungodly soul ties with movie stars or rap singers like the demonic Tupac from having their pictures, books, tapes, etc.

A TRUE STORY

In Chisasabi, Quebec at James Bay, a young native boy was completely possessed. His mother and father were holding on to him with both arms.

A minister who attempted to deliver him from his tormenter (an evil spirit) had problems in deliverance. Finally, he said, in the name of Jesus, tell me your name. No answer! Then afterward at the end of the evening, the boy blurted out, “Tupac forever!”. The evil spirit in him had to obey Jesus’ command to reveal his name. The father realized that the boy wore a Tupac or 2pac belt. When the belt was taken away, deliverance was successful. The rap singer, Tupac, who died prematurely, had been using satanic lyrics. The minister used a prayer of deliverance: 

“I command the ungodly holy spirits to leave now and never  return and go to the abyss in the Name of Jesus Christ, Our Lord.”

The parents destroyed all the paraphernalia, which was kept in their child’s room or which was worn.

FORGIVENESS DELIVERANCE

WE ARE ALL IN NEED OF FORGIVENESS.

Untitled-3

Forgiveness is to our best interest because God said he can only forgive us only when we forgive others. “Forgive, and you will be forgiven,” Luke 6:37. “When you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins,” Mark 11:25. God lifts the penalty for the unforgiveness.  Favor comes from God when forgiveness is applied.

FORGIVENESS DELIVERANCE 

This can be solved by a prayer  of deliverance. Whatever has you in bondage can be broken by the power of the almighty God in the Name of Jesus.

COMPULSION and OBSESSION DELIVERANCE

 Obsessive Compulsive Cycle

Obsessive Compulsive Cycle

I was completely swept along with my own compulsion.

The Obsessive Compulsive Cycle: Damn Unwanted Thoughts!

Since the relief it brings is of limited duration, the compulsion and obsession is a gesture that has to be repeated and thus becomes a habit. The cycle is as follows:

1. The doubt in which the obsession is rooted persists.
2. The threat of danger arises again in one’s mind.
3. The sense of discomfort recurs.
4. The compulsion has to be repeated to neutralize the danger.

About 1 in 50 people, that’s over 5 million Americans and 500,000 Canadians, have developed obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD). Recent research shows that some children may even develop the illness as early as their preschool years… and that a full one-third of current adult OCD cases began in childhood. Some other researchers believe OCD may be hereditary.

What is a compulsion?

In obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), the action that results directly from obsessive thinking is a compulsion, affected people to make specific gestures to suppress the anxious thinking/condition which is plaguing them.

The goal of a compulsion is to eliminate the threat posed by an obsession. Compulsive actions provide temporary relief from the distress, discomfort or disgust caused by an obsession. It can cause tremendous anxiety for those who have it.

 

Typical Obsessions

 

Typical Compulsions

Fear of contamination by dirt, bacteria, disease, excrement, etc. Washing, taking many long showers, incessant cleaning
Fear of harming others as a result of carelessness (e.g., fear of causing an accident) Repetitive rituals, making sure that nothing terrible has happened
Excessive preoccupation with order and symmetry Arranging things in a precise order, placing or folding things in the same way
Fear of being afflicted by a serious disease such as cancer or AIDS Taking excessive measures to eliminate contact with contaminants
Perverted impulses, images or thoughts related to sexuality Invoking opposing images; reassuring oneself or asking for reassurance in a repetitive manner
Exaggerated concern about one or more body parts (e.g., fear that one’s nose is deformed or one’s skin is blemished) Spending hours in front of a mirror, putting on excessive amounts of makeup
Fear of being responsible for a terrible event Checking that doors are locked or that electronic devices are unplugged
Preoccupation with sacrilege, blasphemy or morality Prayer, performing mental rituals, using special numbers or words
Fear of throwing away an object that might be needed later Gathering and hoarding useless objects and papers

Untitled-7You are constantly battling yourself. Just as you can’t run away from your hips, you can’t get rid of your thoughts. Thought control and thought suppression don’t work. Worse—they make you feel more hopeless. Try not to think of polar bears for the next thirty minutes. Oops. There’s another polar bear. It won’t work.

DELIVERANCE FROM ADDICTION ASSURED

FREEDOM

Freedom is the corner stone of all great nations. It is an essential human right. Self-discipline is the foundation of freedom.The complete opposite is the feeling good thinking: “If it feels good, do it.”

ADDICTION

Addiction robs us of self-discipline, freedom and our own dignity. Of course, this leads to slavery to alcohol, drugs, food, pornography, gambling, sex, violence and shopping. These addiction attacks take over our bodies, but also our minds, hearts, spirits and check books. Those who are paralyzed by addiction follow sheepishly wherever the flock leads. Addiction clouds our judgment and causes us to lose sight of our essential purpose in life.

Aldous Huxley said, “Addiction is an increasing desire for an act which gives less and less satisfaction.” Quite the opposite is a person who is free: he or she is quietly confident and peaceful with all manner of positive thoughts.

An addict needs a strategy to solve the problem. The Alcoholics Anonymous has 12 steps that have been successful, but there is a missing ingredient: EVIL INFLUENCE.

ADDICTION AND  DELIVERANCE

ADDICTION DELIVERANCE

One can be laden with all sorts of addiction. These include: alcohol, cigarettes, masturbation just to add a few. This addiction must be dealt with on a spiritual level. Casting out demons is the only way to get rid of these demons that drive the person to do these things in the first place. The demons will hook themselves to a person’s flesh and mind. Deliverance WILL be needed.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall.

One minister of healing had a record of 70% recovery of drug addiction, compared to 5% by the public health system, simply by this form of healing ministry. We are dealing with desperate people who need help right now; they don’t want a sermon about the hereafter. What willpower cannot accomplish, Christ’s healing power can and does.

The Bible talks about the flesh, also known as the “Old Man”: the part of the person that is rebellious and wants to do its own will rather than the will of God and is open to be influenced by the Devil. “Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walk about, seeking whom he may devour.”                            1 Peter 5:8.

“For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.”                                                                                                        1 John 2:16

Ask the Lord what caused this addiction. This will help you to solve the mystery of this problem. Addiction often has its origin

The work of demonic powers is often present in cases of addiction. Our struggle is with evil powers. Drugs and alcohol are a demonic doorway to the supernatural world. When you use it, you enter a dark world of destruction, depression, anxiety, confusion, and restlessness.

The demons will hook themselves to a person’s flesh and mind. Deliverance WILL be needed.

OXYCODONE KILLS

Overdoses involving prescription painkillers are at epidemic levels and now kill more Americans than heroin and cocaine combined.

The number of people killed by drug poisoning, driven by large increases of painkiller abuse, surpassed motor vehicle fatalities for the first time.

DRUG OVERDOSE KILLS

Oxycontin, formally known as Percodan, allows the time released capsules to be absorbed all at once!

DRUG OXYCODONE KILLSDRUG ADDICTION

Oxycodone or Oxycontin kills the pain. It also kill the joy, the hope, the body and the brain and finally the SOUL!  Again spiritual deliverance is really the only solution through the Blood of Christ.

DRUG ADDICTION

Cigarette and Drug Bust

Smokers already know that smoking adversely affects virtually every organic system of the human body and bodily function. The smoker opens the door to the spirit of self destruction and commits “slow-suicide”. The heart and blood are affected. The eyes and nasal passages are inflamed and burned. The respiratory system easily falls prey to emphysema and asthma. Tobacco, nicotine and smoking attack and break down immune systems so cancers can develop unrestricted. Common to smokers are lung cancer, throat cancer and lip cancer.

We are responsible to God for the care of our body.  We are held responsible by God, for the care and use of our physical body. states: “What? Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. “                                                                            1 Corinthians 6:19

We open ourselves to our physical destruction: “If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.”                1 Corinthians 3:17

WHAT IS THE HOLY CALL?

 The call of the gospel is a HOLY CALL.

This is said to be given us before the world began, that is, in the purpose of God from all eternity: “He has saved us and called us to a HOLY CALL—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time”                                                     2 Timothy 1:10

HOLY CALL

“For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to                    strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.                                                                                                                                 2 Chronicles 16:9

Worship is a life of obedience.

 “Away with your hymns of praise! …I want to see a mighty flood of justice,  a river of righteous living that will never run dry.”                                                                                                                                              Amos 5: 23,24

God wants more than praise! God doesn’t say to be just  obedient, but rather to be willing and  obedient. “If you are willing and obedient you will eat the good things of the land.”           Isaiah 1:19

God has a particular will for our lives, each of us. He wants to be involved with us in our day-to-day stuff. There are various decisions of some significance that we must make. God has a will for each of these. We have to consult Him to find out what He wants. He’s a very good communicator and very capable of getting His will across to us. Yet, God will never ask us to do anything unless we ourselves want to do it.

Quite often He will lead us in directions, which eventually appear completely opposite of logic.”  We must choose to obey even when we don’t understand: we’ll see His promise fulfilled in a way outside our understanding. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;  in all your ways submit to him,  and he will make your paths straight.”                                Proverbs 3:5-6

In the end, the will of God is the only thing that’s worth doing. It’s the only thing that ultimately works anyway. Why should we waste our time and energy fighting it?

The key to hearing from the Lord? —

Tell Him you will do His will no matter what it is. We must challenge ourselves to move out of our comfort zone and put our gifts at the service of the whole Church.

The Holy Spirit can be unpredictable: one can experience a complete emotional and physical state as euphoric, even ecstatic: resting in the Spirit without distractions or resting in the arms of the Lord Himself.  In this state, you are able to hear voices but you are not the least bit interested.

“I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!”                                                                                     Luke 12:49

CAN THERE BE JOY IN SUFFERING?

WHY SUFFERING?

We will all experience pain at sometime or other in our lives. Whether this pain is our doing or God’s doing, which is something entirely different. Why an all-good, all-loving God does allow us to suffer?

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Suffering-Happiness98-done.jpg

Easy! He allows us all sorts of things because we have the freedom to behave as we will. He has also provided a place with the greatest contentment that we can imagine, if only we listen to Him. God wants us to return to Him, but He cannot force us to take this action.

SUFFERING JOY

SUFFERING AND JOY

God changes what suffering can do; it can make us one with God.

We are all called to the perfect joy. The Holy Spirit changes our sorrow and suffering into joy. “But the fruit of the Holy Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.”                  Galatians 5: 22-23

Fear not“, because God  is always with you, even in times that seem very obscure to you: “They do not know My ways. Psalm 95:10

Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and she was asked, How could God let something like this happen?‘ (regarding Hurricane Katrina).  Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response..  She said, ‘I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.  And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out.  

How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?
