STARTING YOUR LIFE A NEW CLEAN SLATE IN CHRIST JESUS
Many of us have lives that we are not fully happy with. We’ve done things we’re not pleased about or we haven’t been able to do things that we want to do. Some of us have guilt, shame, indignations and many other matters that haven’t been realized or that we wish could just disappear. Is there any way we can walk each day with our heads high and satisfied with our place in this world? This article successfully addresses all those concerns.
I recently saw this totally beautiful Latina female on a Miami Christian show. Her parents used to “make love” in front of her while she was a baby in her crib. She began having sex and was totally “turned out” at an early age. She began getting “high” at age 11. By age 13 she was doing crack cocaine and heroine by age 15. At age 16 she got drunk at a party and woke up brutally gang raped in an abandoned building in a near by city. Her own father told her that she was hated by her entire family. She was thrown out the house and continued prostituting herself to make ends meet and pay for her drug and alcohol habits. That was four years ago. We’ll get back to this wayward sister soon.
Many of us have things that plague our minds and emotions. For years I carried the fact that my father beat me regularly and my mother never hugged me (but she totally loved my two sisters). My oldest sister recently died under “difficult to talk about” circumstances (2 Corinthians 12:4, 7;Psalm 78:49). I carried that burdened of my dysfunctional family for years. For others it might not be as extreme. Some people may still be stressing over lost loves, relationships or opportunities. I met a female in a restaurant who was still upset of an olympic bomb threat (years ago) where she lost her opportunity to compete for a gold medal. Most of us have something or somethings that keep us in a sluggish, depressed or downward motion.
My questions to you are: “how do you feel about your particular situation” and “do you want to stay that way”?
The truth is that the past can’t be changed. “Real Time (the present)” moves on to the future which then becomes the present which then keeps moving in to the past. There is no human who has ever successfully been able to live in “Real Time (the present)” for their lifespan. Many have tried with fake hair(s), plastics, and cutting themselves all over but the reality is we can usually tell that this is an aged individual reaching out for that time which has past (the youthful days).
When I realize that my father has been dead (he and my sister died very sad deaths) for over 20 years, there is only one logical question to ask myself. “Do I want to stay in 1979 or do I want to live in 2011/2012?” When I or you realize that you really do want to get on with your life then maybe we can seek help to do so.
Now let me tell you who our enemy(s) is. There is a Source which is able to manipulate your mind and feelings. A Bishop asked why does cancer only affect and kill the body until the body is dead? Why does cancer seem to stop “killing” the body once it’s dead? The Bishop was saying that the real culprit behind diseases like cancer is Satan, his devils and his demons (Mark 6:7, 13; John 8:44). It is Satan who entices a woman to choose the “bad boy” over the “good guy who wants her to marry him”. In doing so Satan depresses the “good guy” causing him to degress, sets the woman up with a “no good” “bad boy” daddy who can not or will not support his own children, and stresses the woman out (all in one Satanic “shot”). Women begin to despise men leading to decisions that this article won’t cover. Some “good guys” also turn away from female rejection. Many “bad boys” end up “getting worse” leading to a prison experience (that also gets worse in many ways). Just read Genesis Chapter 3. We’re in this messed up world because of Satan the Anti-God instigator (Genesis Chapter 3; Romans 5:12; Matthew 4:8-9). Satan hates you, your family, your children and anything human. He is the First and Original Man (Woman) Slaying Murderer (John 8:44).
Once you and I realize that we are in a Spiritual War between Jesus (God) and Satan we begin to realize why these bad things happen in our life. My father repeatedly beat the crap out of me because Satan was totally dictating my father’s mind and the circumstances leading to my father’s anger. Satan’s wicked kingdom also tried to lay claims on my family line. This is what some call a “generational curse”. It’s not just me. You too are experiencing the manipulations of Satan’s kingdom in your family and individual life.
The Good News is that God is Love (1 John 4:8). You might not presently believe that God is Love. Yet God came to Earth as Jesus and took a brutal beat down and crucifixion (Roman execution) for your sins and my sins. God loved you and me so much that He sent His only begotten Son to planet Earth to die for your sins and my sins (John 3:16; John 8:28, 32). It is because of Jesus’ precious blood that you and I can now approach God as a Son/Daughter ( Hebrews 4:16) and we can also joyfully enter Heaven when we die (John 3:16).
So do you want to change and have the victory in your life? That beautiful but abused Latina which I started this article with wanted to change.
This Is How You And I Can Fully Change And Totally Defeat Satan’s Agenda To Fill Our Lives With Stress & Unhappiness
1) You must believe that the Holy Bible is a Supernatural Book which is the Voice or Word of God (Hebrews 4:11-12; John 17:17)-You must learn how to read the Bible, Believe the Bible, Apply the Bible, and Continuously Speak the Bible to cause Godly and Good Things to come into your life.
In other words if you need Money, then you should be reading out loud and believing Psalm 112. God promises to richly and financially bless anyone who practices unselfishness, love, Godly obedience, and righteous. So you would continually read Psalm 112 outloud as you prayed to God. If you meet those requirements of Psalm 112 and you continually talk to God about it, He will bless you. How do I know that God will bless you? God’s Word is Truth (John 17:17) and God is Faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9).
You must also ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and life and your Lord and Savior. You must confess that Jesus Christ died for your sins on the cross and that you are now a Born Again Believer (John 3:1-16) and that God now views you as a totally Righteous Christian with no sin whatsoever (Romans 5:39)
Be Sure To Read Romans Chapter 8 out loud and apply it to yourself.
Be Sure To Also Read Psalm 103 out loud and apply it to yourself.
Get in the habit of repitition when talking to God about these things. Memorizing these things can greatly help you reshape your present mind to the mind of Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:7-10; Romans 12:1-5).
2) You must regularly associate with other followers of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 10:24-25)-Satan makes everyone think that Churches are hypocritical, materialistic, unrealistic, judgmental, and “old school”. That is one of the biggest lies in history! Yes Churches have issues just like your place of employment and your family does. Yet the Church is the place where God’s Spirit will commune with you, change you and improve you.
3) You must learn how to praise, magnify and worship God-God loves to be praised. If you want God to bless you today then read Psalm Chapter 145-Chaper 150. Read it today or as soon as you can. Read it out loud. Read it with passion. I guarantee God (the Holy Ghost) will “Show Up” and “Show Out”. Your blessing will come with in 2 24 hour days of your reading those 5 (easy to read) Psalms. Christians call those 5 Psalms the “Praise Psalms”. God Loves to be Praised (Matthew 6:9, 13).
4) Pray out loud Praising God and Thanking God before you begin to talk to God about your personal concerns (Philippians 4:6-7)- If you do 1-4 I guarantee Satan’s bondage over your mind, emotions and life will begin to decrease. He and his Kingdom of Darkness will begin to “weep and gnash their teeth” as their power over your life decreases (Psalm 112:10).
5) You must also realize that Satan’s Kingdom and your own sinful flesh/emotions/thoughts have a stronghold in your mind. You must begin to totally remove and eliminate your “old (Pre-Jesus)” ways of doing things and replace them with the ways of God (1 Corinthians 10:3-5). The Bible totally shows you how to do this. You must be Born Again (John 3:1-14). Always ask for the Holy Ghost in whatever you do. The Holy Ghost will help you renew, transform, conform and change your mind ways and everything about you to the ways and mind of Jesus Christ (Romans 12:1-5).
6) Jesus said that Heaven Bound Christians would be recognizeable by their “Fruits” (Matthew 7:16-17). Regularly ask the Holy Ghost to help you remove your “old” ways and replace them with the Fruit of God’s Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25).
7) The Bible advises us not to think on the things we would normally think about but to think on these things (Philippians 4:8). We must remove our Pre Jesus ways. This is how we totally cut off Satan and his dark kingdom out of our lives.
8) With the help of other Christians you will learn how to take Authority over Satan and his entire kingdom (Luke 10:17-19).
9) As your mind begins to change you will be in a better position to put on the mind of Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:7-10).
10) You also must culitvate the Whole (entire) Armor of God. You need this armor to protect you and help you in Spiritual Warfare (Ephesians 6:8-18; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5).
11) A good Christian Church and other Christian literature will help you to become a Strong and Fortified Christian. Never be afraid to ask God to baptize you in the Holy Ghost (Acts 1:7-8; Matthew 3:11) and give you the gifts of God’s Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:4-14).
The wayward female whom I began this article asked for the Holy Ghost to come into her life. She began attending a “Miracle” church in Miami. She gives the Holy Ghost all the credit. Some how she kept attending that Church even when her flesh rebelled. She is now a very active and devoted baptized member of that Church. She is a teacher and has many students who love her and respect her. And I can personally testify that she is Angelically Beautiful!!!
So the choice is yours. You or I can continue to be lied to, manipulated, set up, and possibly killed early by Satan and his Man, Woman and Child Killing Kingdom or we can stop doubting God’s Love for us and turn to Him (John 3:16).
Thank-you Father God for sending your only begotten Son Jesus Christ to die for me and humans. We enter Heaven because of the Blood of Jesus. We have Joy on Earth because of what Jesus did on the Cross. In Jesus’ Name and His Precious Blood and in the Presence of the Holy Ghost I say Thank-you Daddy. Amen.
