There is more than one Truth that sets men free. “Overcome evil with Good”. Why do the 12 steps work? And make no mistake it will work. Because its implementing a great spiritual foundation & axiom that promotes replacing good with evil. The addicted person goes to meetings and shares their heart in an attempt to do what is right. They confess their weakness. They keep trudging over and over again. Till finally they forge out a good place in their heart and mind of overcoming a long standing crushing bad habit.
When tempted give thanks to Jesus, to God in Jesus name over and over. Whatever the temptation. Or take further action and go to a meeting, work the 12 steps, and you may find out what exactly is behind the need for evil behavior. If you have no guilt then what is the need to change? Only those who struggle with their flesh eventually overcome their flesh.
The source of most evil roads lead to pain & trauma of some kind.
No fear? No Courage. Know Fear Know Courage. Embrace fear. Fear is part of the human condition. Those who deny their process of expressing fear deny the Belt of Truth the armor. The Truth shall set you free. Fear shame programming is at the heart of much self deception. Those who embrace the lies about themselves as a coping skill rely on the lie as their safe harbor. Truth is what protects. A man cannot embrace Truth until he sees himself in Truth and sees he has embraced the lie on many occasions. Only God changes hearts. How can a man go before God in Truth if he cannot face his own heart in Truth? False humility & inventive self degradation are worthless & also a lie. What I tell you is trauma programming at the core of the deceiver’s plan. The Locust cannot deceive the children of Truth. The dividing of time and strong delusion are here. Either ye are in the lie or in the Truth. To be in Truth is to see both realities. To watch those under the strong delusion is not what you believe it to be. The strong delusion IS a delusion not some super lie spewed by the beast. The S.D entails a pair of glasses that lie to one’s heart and mind feeding it lies on going. Lies of Illusion to see and to remember that which was not. Yet they remember it as if it was. The lies must be expelled lest the Christians continue to follow the wrong god. Idolatry idolatry they called the serpent by God’s holy name. Idolatry idolatry the juggernaut was insidious. What is “Holy”? Some temple of unbelievers? What can be desecrated is being desecrated. For desecration there must first be something Holy in it.
The process of being set free from the deception of the beast requires the supernatural kick which only God Himself can provide. The rest is the work to be done. I speak not of the born again experience. But rather I entrust to you the words describing what should occur in time for those who are born again. To receive The Holy Spirt of God is no small non-event. If a man receives the Holy Spirit for supernatural gifts, The Comforter, and to be lead into all Truth it will be a Wonderful experience. Most likely the only Wonderful experience on Earth & unlike any other.
Am I saying Christians who have not had a spiritual experience of wonder cannot possibly have the Holy Spirit of God Baptism? No. But I am sharing my experience with it. And what I have learned of many others who have had a spiritual experience in a Pentecostal setting by prayer and the laying on of hands.
God does not go by man’s rules. But there is obvious to me, a key of transference that happens with the laying on of hands and prayer.
Seek and ye shall find. Knock and it shall be opened.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for & the evidence of things not seen. By Faith the elders obtained a good report from God.
It’s not Faith IF it’s not Faith. Meaning…Hope & Faith both have their doubts. Why? Because hope is not yet fulfilled. Once you understand the nature of Hope and that there is fear involved because it’s part of the human condition…accept it.
