UNFORGIVENESS

UNFORGIVENESS

The root cause of unforgiveness is bitterness and hatred towards the person who has offended us.

One of the hardest things in life is to let go of old hurts. We often say, or at least think: “What you did to me and my family, my ancestors, or my friends I cannot forget or forgive. … One day you will have to pay for it.” Sometimes our memories are decades, even centuries, old and keep asking for revenge.

Holding people’s faults against them often creates an impenetrable wall. But listen to Paul: “For anyone who is in Christ, there is a new creation: the old order is gone and a new being is there to see. It is all God’s work”. 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 Indeed, we cannot let go of old hurts, but God can. Paul says: “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not holding anyone’s fault against them”.                  2 Corinthians 5:19. It is God’s work, but we are God’s ministers, because the God who reconciled the world to God entrusted to us “the message of reconciliation”. 2 Corinthians 5:19 This message calls us to let go of old hurts in the Name of God.

ONCE FOR ALL

ONCE FOR ALL
ONCE FOR ALL

Jesus Christ is the ultimate high priest and He presents us with a description of the one sacrifice of Jesus Christ as far superior to the many sacrifices offered by the old priesthood.

ONCE FOR ALL
ONCE FOR ALL

Jesus said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them”—though they were offered in accordance with the law. Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first to establish the second. And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.  Hebrews 10:8-10

ONCE FOR ALL
ONCE FOR ALL

Hebrews 9 and 10 tells us something that is complete and permanent, something that has happened once-for-all in the one act of Jesus Christ, something that never was and never could be done by the old sacrifices. Think again of the impact this one, once-for-all, never to be repeated, permanent in its effect, sacrifice of Christ has:

  1. The redemption it obtained is eternal.                 (Hebrews 9:12)
  2. It cleanses our consciences.                                        (Hebrews 9:14)
  3. It liberates us to serve God.                                        (Hebrews 9:14)
  4. It sets us free from sins.                                                (Hebrews 9:15)
  5. It does away with sin.                                                    (Hebrews 9:26)
  6. It is established.                                                                 (Hebrews 10:9)
  7. It makes us holy.                                                              (Hebrews 10:10)
  8. It is permanently effective, finished and complete.                                                                                                                       (Hebrews 10:12-14)
  9. It makes us perfect forever.                                    (Hebrews 10:14)
  10. God remembers our sins and lawless acts no more.                                                                                                                              (Hebrews 10:17)
  11. It makes any further sacrifice for sin redundant and unnecessary.                                                                    (Hebrews 10:18)
  12. It means that we have confidence to enter the very presence of God without fear of judgment or condemnation.                                                                                                                          (Hebrews 10:19)
  13. It means we can draw near to God with full assurance of faith.                                                                                    (Hebrews 10:22)
  14. It means that our hearts are cleansed from a guilty conscience.                                                                       (Hebrews 10:22)

ANXIETY CURE WITHOUT MEDS

MANY STRUGGLE WITH ANXIETY.

According the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States. That’s 40 million adults—18% of the population—who struggle with anxiety. Anxiety and depression often go hand in hand, with about half of those with depression also experiencing anxiety. 

Anxiety disorder is a feeling of intense nervousness and can sometimes be known as a nervous system disorder: oversensitivity and nervousness cause an over-reaction of the sympathetic nervous system. True depression is a disease and comes from anxiety where one gets down from events and circumstances.

UNACHIEVABLE GOALS

Normal people do not suffer when pursuing unachievable goals which may waste their energies on pointless effort. We ask a depressed person “Is there something in your life that is very important that you are trying to do but you are failing to do and you can’t bring yourself to give up?” Perhaps you are vulnerable to what you believe are catastrophic failures.

Pharmaceutical companies popularized the notion that anxiety and depression were caused by a chemical imbalance. Strict testing rules reveal how little good many of these chemical based drugs do: much like a quick band-aid on a more serious wound.

GO PLANT-BASED MEDICINE FOR YOUR ANXIETY

These “feel good” foods spur the release of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. They are a safe and easy first step in managing anxiety. It starts with limiting or avoiding alcohol and caffeine.

SOME CHEMICAL MEDICATION TEND TO BE ADDICTIVE.  YOU SOMETIMES FEEL LIKE YOU ARE ON A MERRY-GO-ROUND AND YOU CAN’T GET OFF. 

LAVENDER

 Some evidence suggests that oral lavender or aromatherapy with lavender can reduce anxiety.

OVERCOMING STRESS

EVERYONE IS FAMILIAR WITH STRESS.

PANIC OR ANXIETY ATTACKS

Anxiety or panic attacks can be caused by a consequence of circumstances and relationships in our lives. In small doses, stress can benefit us, but when it is too great, it affects our physical and mental functions.

“Save me, O God,
    for the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in the miry depths,
    where there is no foothold.
I have come into the deep waters;
    the floods engulf me.”                                    Psalm 69:1-2

Many of us have felt stress as a result of the pressure of expectation—of not being good enough: good enough to make the team or good enough to be popular. When we fail to meet these expectations, disappointment can be crushing. Sometimes pressure or stress continues no matter how hard we try: it is simply too overwhelming.

To make matters worse, we may know that we are in this awful position because of our own fault. Some of the pressures of life could have been avoided with better personal choices.

ANXIETY ATTACK
ANXIETY ATTACK

We can also experience stress of waiting for God to meet His own expectations:

“I am worn out calling for help;
    my throat is parched.
My eyes fail,
    looking for my God.”                                        Psalm 69:3

To begin with, we should never make important decisions when we are under pressure. The ramifications can affect the rest of your life.

Asking for help may seem very humbling. We have to acknowledge our personal inadequacy.

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”                                                                                                                                                1 Peter 5: 6, 7

We simply say, “Help me Lord, because you are a God of mercy.”—“in Your time

“But I pray to You, Lord,
    in the time of Your favor;
in your great love, O God,
    answer me with Your sure salvation.”  Psalm 69:13

David chooses to find his release from stress by praising God. This is another way of saying that you trust God to solve your problem.

“I will praise God’s name in song
    and glorify Him with thanksgiving.”  Psalm 69:30

HOW DOES PRAYER WORK?

Will we ever know how prayer works as long as we live in this earthly existence? Any scientific explanation remains quite elusive. Scientists simply don’t know. This question is similar to the riddle of how our conscience works.  These are the deepest questions pertaining to God. Albert Einstein once admitted that “Science without religion is lame.”

OVERCOMING FEAR

YOUNG AND RESTLESS

When you are young, you feel invincible. Life stretches before you without limits. Then you grow up and you take on more responsibilities. You have to be more ready for eventualities that require things like insurance and savings.

You start to see life as increasingly fragile and you begin to hedge your bets. Before you would just “go for it”, but now your look for the safe ground.

Then events begin to unravel around you, like the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack. The world’s only super power had been brought to its knees by a handful of terrorists with box cutters.

THE POWER OF FEAR

President Roosevelt spoke about fear itself in 1933: nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror that paralyzes us. He said,” the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

David captured the immobilization of that fear:

“I will watch my ways
    and keep my tongue from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth

    while in the presence of the wicked.”
So I remained utterly silent,
    not even saying anything good.
But my anguish increased.”                           
Psalm 39:1-2

When we are threatened, fear clouds our judgment and can impede us from doing the right thing.

LIFE IS SHORT.

 “Surely every man at his best is a mere breath.” Psalm 39:5 And we “make an uproar over nothing” orin vain we rush about”  Psalm 39:6 So we must make sure that our lives count for something.

There is hope:” “But now, Lord, what do I look for?
    My hope is in You. Psalm 39:7

We can regret our limitations that we endure and live accordingly, or we can live our lives to make a difference. We should not to be governed by the length of our days, but by the depth of our commitment.

Only God can overwhelm our sense of futility with His purpose. Only God can defeat our temporary existence with the hope of life that is everlasting (heaven).

LOOK FOR HIDDEN ROOTS.

It is a demonic and yes, you can be delivered of it. Look for hidden roots.  Examples of roots are guilt, which is defined as a feeling of responsibility or remorse for some offense, failure, mistake, crime, or wrong, whether real or imagined. It is associated with negative feelings such as shame, remorse, anguish, torment, self-condemnation, self-unforgiveness, self-judgment.

Do you often wondered about your own problems:

  1.  An inordinate desire to please
  2. Inability to say no to things I didn’t want to do
  3. Always setting goals, working hard to accomplish them and then stopping short of success
  4. Always feeling I had to do things better than anyone else  
  5. Trying to make everything around me and about me look better than I thought it was

WORRY AND ANXIETY

STAY CALM AND CONFIDENT, AND GIVE GOD TIME TO WORK.

“FEAR NOT” appears in the Bible, 365 times: “Do not worry.” ”Do not fear: once for every day of the year

The Lord delights in the impossible:Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us,”                                             Ephesians 3:20

We gain nothing by our restless and anxious efforts. We simply must wait upon the Lord and He will assuredly open the way for us.

God asks us to walk be faith, not by feelings. Faith is to prayer as the feather is to the arrow: it flies swifter and directly.

HIDDEN UNFORGIVENESS

UNFORGIVENESS
UNFORGIVENESS

Ask the Holy Spirit to bring to mind anyone whom you need to forgive. Respond to His prompting and specifically name each person. Remember, the ones that you find hardest to forgive are the ones you most need to forgive. You can use these words:

I forgive all who have harmed me or wronged me in the past. In particular, I forgive (name those who you need to forgive). It is done in heaven.

Forgiveness is a decision. It is not an emotion. Yet, psychologically, you may still find it difficult to forgive someone who really harmed you. This is when you take it upon yourself to pray a short prayer for that person including the above prayer every day for ten days. It will also be done in your mind.

Why is the important? God offers to forgive your ten million dollar debt to Him if you forgive a ten thousand dollar debt for someone is owed you. If you persist in holding on to this debt, God will hold onto yours. It becomes merely enlightened self-interest.

 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”                                                                                                                                                  Mark 11:25

PSYCHIATRIC SOLUTION

PSYCHIATRIC SOLUTION

THE MENTAL HEALTH SOLUTION

 Psychology is slow recognizing how the spirit realm functions. Most of the psychiatric world ridicules belief in demons. Mental disorders do exist and yes Satan is alive and well. 

Both neurobiological and/or spiritual reasons exist for some people with mental illness. There is NO non-spiritual cure for a spiritual problem. There can be, however, a spiritual cure for a non-spiritual problem.

It’s a simple issue. God is the greatest Healer ever known, and He can heal all things, regardless of cause. Man’s healers are limited by their finite power and ability. They can heal some physical/psychological things, some of the time. It therefore stands to reason that God can heal things of both a spiritual nature AND a physical or psychological nature.

LACK OF WISDOM

There is a variety of mental illnesses that do not allow us to “see” reality “as it is”, but rather see it through the distorted lens of doubt, ignorance and misconception. The root cause of this is lack of the true perception that is due to lack of wisdom, understanding or knowledge.

This type of understanding is given by the Holy Spirit to those who pray and meditate. We should be willing to write down what comes to us in a journal at this prayer time. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, Who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”                                                                    James 1:5

This type of illness can also keep us in bondage, prevent God’s healing power from working within us, and cause us to become physically ill.  We could force the demons to leave by the power and authority of Jesus Christ.

HOW DOES DELIVERANCE WORK?

 Jesus said, “I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy.”                                       Luke 10:19

These evil spirits immediately obey us in the name of Jesus Christ, submit to us (Deliverance practitioners), acknowledge our power, and are forced to come out of the bodies they possess. They fear Christ, have mortal dread of the word of God, and obey believers who speak it with authority: “At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.”                                                                                                                                           Philippians 2:10

Jesus explained this power-principle when He told the disciples “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.”                                                                                                                                   Acts 1:8

SOLUTIONS TO BULLYING

Bullying Solutions

SUFFERING IN SILENCE

Bullying can enter a kid’s life at anytime and send them spiraling down towards hopelessness and despair. The young victims are rarely aware of the options available to them, which is why they continue to suffer in silence. You need to help your child realize that they’re not weak and help them discover ways to bring their torment to an end.

A SUFFOCATING EXPERIENCE

Bullying can often leave the victim feeling utterly distraught, making them feel like the walls are closing in on them and that there’s no easy escape from the nightmare. People they turn to for help can let them down, thus reinforcing their sense of isolation. Depression despair and desperation can drive them to the edge, tempting them to end their misery at the expense of their health, dreams and even life.

WARNING SIGNS

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) identify these possible warning signs for bullying:

  • Child comes home with torn, damaged or missing clothes, books, or belongings
  • Unexplained cuts, bruises, scratches
  • Has few friends, if any
  • Seems afraid to go to school or take part in after-school activities
  • Takes a long “illogical” route when walking to and from school
  • Has lost interest in school work or suddenly begins to do poorly
  • Appears sad, moody, teary, or depressed when he/she comes home
  • Has trouble sleeping and/or frequent bad dreams
  • Experiences a loss of appetite
  • Appears anxious and suffers from low self-esteem
  • Recurrent complaints of physical symptoms such as stomach-aches or headaches with no apparent cause
  • Sudden change in language (calling themselves a “loser” or a best friend a “jerk”)

They can heal some physical/psychological things, some of the time. It therefore stands to reason that God can heal things of both a spiritual nature AND a physical or psychological nature.

Can God not heal a brain disorder, which is not rooted in demonic lies embedded in the memory, but in a structural defect of the brain?This healing is facilitated by saintly or holy Christians, who have a gift of healing because the Holy Spirit pours out His seven gifts to you through them. St. Augustine said, What I live by, I impart.”

Deliverance is another matter. Deliverance beliefs and practices are based on the assumption that both mental and physical ills result from possession of the sufferer by demons, and are to be treated by the expulsion of those demons. Once the lie has been removed, nothing will be able to trigger pain from the wound again, if a spiritual life is pursued. That can only happen with the support of a bible-based Christian community.

Deliverance practitioners claim to treat schizophrenia, ADHD, and Reactive Attachment Disorder, and believe that these problems are related to sins either of the person in treatment or of an ancestor. 

No person, including ourselves, is capable of talking us out of the demonic lies that we believe. Deliverance is required.

The first question that is asked: Does the person believe that an evil force is present?

ADDICTION COUNSELING

About 90% of all physical ailments are cause by not walking in the Spirit, that is the Spirit of reality and the realm of love.

You will begin to realize that you deal in Spirit-inhabited world, that is the world of angels and demons. The therapy of the Holy Spirit is “a renewal in the inner life of your minds.”                       Ephesians 4:23 Continue reading MENTAL ILLNESS HEALING
