Your authority in Christ – see miracles

Did you know Christian Brother or Sister that when minions are persecuting you, be it verbal abuse, being drugged against your will or anything else, you can actually use your authority in Christ (providing you have faith) to make them or it stop instantly.

This is why:

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
Luke 10:19‭-‬20 ESV

This is how:

Think, believe and mean “in Jesus name I command you stop, in Jesus name!”. Now tap your foot or do something else appropriate to help confirm the belief (e.g. click fingers). Now think “thankyou Jesus they (or it) has stopped, amen”. Believe the Luke verse and wait for it to happen.

N.B; highest faith is praise but you cannot always do that even if you think of praise songs. Think these words “Jesus you are good” and mean it. A more rooted and constant faith comes from knowing the Word. I have said it before and will say it again:

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”
Romans 10:17 ESV

N.B; Click or tap foot but be wise and inventive e.g. clicking your finger in a muscly minions face will give you a nobbly nose if you do not have sufficient faith.

Pray to Jesus that He would help you to use your authority. Persevere and you will get it. He did not say Luke 10:19-20 as if it was not a present for you.

You will see some pretty cool things if you learn this.

Selah, it’s the belief that counts when you do it therefore it can be a “calm” command.

Stronghold busters – real chain breakers

Have you got a sin or bad habit that keeps on dragging you down when you succumb to it e.g.

  • Vanity and looking in the mirror too much to then pay in self-consciosness in public?
  • Or have you got a problem with forgiveness and feel bitter?
  • Have you got emotional hurt inside of you after past abuse?

A great remedy is the use of a stronghold buster. I got the idea from Freedom In Christ ministries by Steve Goss – search online, it’s great.

Let me briefly explain. A stronghold buster can break the lies that the enemy has put in our minds. Lies that hold us back e.g. not being able to forgive. Stronghold Busters re-program your mind with the use of the Word of God e.g. for unforgiveness you might use the points that we are released spiritually when we forgive, and include scripture on forgiveness to say that this is the case.

This is not brainwashing as you are not being fed only rice and you are not paying me £39.99 an hour in a 10 year contract. Anyway, the brainwashers are the kind of minions who put the strongholds there in the first place.

Example:

In Jesus name I affirm that I will forgive my enemies as then I will be spiritually released as it is written that I will not be forgiven unless I forgive, Jesus name!

Thankyou Jesus that I can now walk in your freedom and thankyou for forgiving my sin.

Amen

That is a simple example that you can adjust, but remember to use the Word of God inside of the text as Jesus said:

Hebrews 4:12 “the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two edged sword, dissecting soul and spirit, joints and marrow and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart”.

N.B; the sword is spiritual and not a tangible sword.

When you say “In Jesus name!” believing it will happen and then thanking God, you are using your authority in Christ (Luke 10:19-20).

That verse says that this works, and I have said it before and I will say it again;

Jesus agrees with this verse and Jesus Himself is the Word which is the bible. You say then “but that authority thing does not work”. Then pray to grow in faith and God might tell you to learn His Word more. In time I am certain you will be able to use your authority if you grow in true faith in Christ:

Romans 10:17 “Faith comes through hearing and hearing through the Word of God. ”

Disclaimer; Jesus controls the heavenlies so you cannot just do a Stronghold Buster to get a Ferrari or a life time supply of chocolate, or a chocolate Ferrari.

Jesus clearly said He won’t and He decides (Ephesians 1:20-21). He will give you things that you need e.g. healing, peace, the assurance you are loved, desire to love others and things like sorting out the bullet points I made at the start.

Selah 🙂

About me

I give advice on Worthy Christian Forums website too.

I struggle with Seasonal Affective Disorder over Winter so please forgive me if I snarl like a zombie. Someone recommended that I should do gentle purring instead. Only being silly but I do get SAD.

I am an abuse victim and run half marathons for survivors.org.uk.

I have been put on medication due to the torment in my mind. This has caused additional problems therefore I meditate and it helps.

  • I do cycling and running daily to keep fit and healthy. I have done the last three Chesterfield half-marathons for charity and have signed up for the 2020 Chesterfield half-marathon. I have done 10k races recently and have registered for more.
  • I do mindfullness for my mental health.
  • I have lots of fruit and veg. I love jackets potatoes lol.
  • I do pilates for my core and chin ups for my upper body strength.
  • I volunteer at a charity shop.
  • I think the NHS is very good and have been a great help with my mental health. I am a high functioning patient.

The pain has brought me closer to God and I have mostly come to know Jesus in suffering.

I believe that if you are going to help somebody suffering, then you should have been through it yourself. Then you understand.

Jesus went through everything for us, so He is the best person to help us and He is God.

Alone and afraid solutions for Corona

Do you feel lonely? You are not the only person who feels like that.

Are you afraid too? You are not the only person.

It might feel like you are the only person suffering at the moment. This does not mean that you are not suffering. Feeling like you are the only one is a symptom of the suffering though so if you realise that there are thousands of people in the same situation as you then it helps to know it is not just you. It helps even more if you pray for them as it takes you out of yourself like a third peron view. Things make sense when you do this well.

You are not actually alone and also, you need not be afraid. Let me explain.

I need to help you believe the truth that Jesus is sitting right next to you.

Jesus is love, Jesus is God and God is Spirit. One of the definitions of God is that He is omnipresent i.e. He is everywhere as He is God. He is omnipotent which means He is very powerful and if someone very powerful is on your team then you need not be afraid.

Well lets say why there is a spiritual realm first so we can do the rest.

If your are fortunate enough be clever from birth then you can look up the “Cosmological argument”. This is where a monk with a big beard has sat at a monastry for a long time with big books, candles and scrolls at his desk to figure something out. If Jesus was taken to court then it would be revealed that He is the son of God. This is how we should decide as this how we decide for other people in this world. If it was a fair case then He would be revealed. The devil has tangled up so much of our thinking though e.g. science as a how for now is positive, but the spiritual why is lost to science’s over use. Philosophers debate that theories we base science on now, were not perfect long ago, thus making an domino effect of wrongness. I believe that a spiritual why like loving people shifts the universe like a living organism and leads to the science how of you being happy, like dopamine in your brain.

Or you could consider things like beauty. Do you think that beauty is skin deep. Do you think that beauty is just things like the shape of a pretty woman’s face and when that model gets home she feels empty for being manipulated by that industry. What about the shiny eyes of a slightly more plump black Momma? Or a medium weight very spiritual African lady. Her beauty is the energy and enthusiasm inside her.

A spiritual thing and don’t forget we are dumbed down in some countries. We will see many more tangible spiritual things in third world countries.

Jesus now. We have been using AD Anno Domini in our calendar for 2020 years and before that was BC Before Christ.

Any historian cannot deny the existence of Jesus but then according to C.S Lewis we are left with only three things He could be; bad, sad or divine.

  1. A tyrant who manipulated people for his own purposes.
  2. A mad man who was possessed.
  3. God. Divine.

The bible’s authenticity far out weighs any secular writing of its time. Check out the statistics from a valid source of its historical validity based on the number of copies of itself.

So the historian then reads in the bible that Jesus Christ died a very painful sacrificial death for people He loved. He is not bad then.

2. He was able to rationalize and use logic e.g. He stunned the thinkers of that time with His answers to their difficult questions.

We are left with number three.

Guys, He loves you very much.

Try praying. Praying will work if your heart is true. Genuinely ask for His help. Can you think how true your heart would be if you were in desperate danger e.g. hiding from a violent person. Trying to find help when there is no other way, believing that Jesus is also there in that situation.

“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Hebrews 13:5 ESV

Jesus can comfort you. Ask Him in prayer for understanding and find rest in Him.

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28‭-‬30 ESV

Maybe you will read this and pray successfully e.g. maybe He will remind you of memories of when it was actually God who kept you alive after overdoses or how He collected your tears in a bottle because of the pain that made you do it.

He loves us unconditionaly no matter how naughty we have been (don’t be naughty, it hurts you) so just pray and mean this:

“Lord Jesus I realise I am a human and I struggle with being naughty. You said in your love letter (the bible), that you would forgive me. Please forgive me and help me to be a better person and love my neighbour. Jesus I believe you are God and that you rose from the dead after the cross where you died for my naughtiness. Please help me to cuddle up to you in your warm powerful arms. Please I need someone to help me”.

Read and learn the advice from this blog in order to stay a Christian and keep the assurance, purpose and significance this brings to your life in Jesus Christ.

Don’t just taste the gift and fall away like is written in the book of Hebrews. Life would become worse than before you trusted in Christ then. I am not trying to manipulate you. Jesus is saying something to keep you in His love. Check out what it says:

Hebrews 6:4-6 NKJV

For it is impossible for those who were
once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become
partakers of the Holy Spirit,
and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them againto repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God,
and put Him to an open shame.

to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God,
and put Him to an open shame.

So if you make the commitment then make sure you do it with all of your heart.

Maintain your faith by learning your bible. Keeping in contact with true, bible believing and loving warm Christians. Keeping the understanding of the cross of Jesus Christ central in your faith. Find ways to go to a healthy church and ask the Pastor for advice. Say to the Pastor that you have just made the commitment to be a Christian and follow Jesus. Keep praying to Jesus and He will help you.

Knowing Jesus is something very special and is from another world. When you realise that you are loved by Him, the things of this world seem different, distant. You think of eternity in heaven where it is just love. There is nothing else that matters. You realise that there is no greater gift that a human can possess.

You have a voice

Do you ever get so messed around and trodden on by this cruel world that you just end up going into victim mode and start apologizing and saying sorry to people that you do not need to say sorry to as they are just minions anyway…

Let me remind of something: YOU HAVE A VOICE

Now that does not mean shouting back at the minions, it means being assertive e.g. rather than saying sorry to someone who is bullying you, instead keep calm and explain in the simplest way possible that you are being hurt by them. If they don’t listen then you are wasting your time anyway.

A few game changers:

1. The best thing best thing if you can is love as it casts out the fear (first bit of the verse 1 John 4:18).

Love them back as they bully you and then miracles happen.

Love is the greatest thing and the demons of fear dissolve.

2. Exercise is a game changer.

1 Timothy 4:7-9 says that exercise is “of some use” but this is after Godliness is made as the main point.

If “physical training” occurs just after Godliness then I think it is very useful.

Running till you get a sweat for good earobic respiration, press ups for upper body or pilates for your core.

It makes you break out of the mental cage of bullying that the minions put you in.

3. Have a laugh as laughter is good medicine. There is a Proverb for that but I won’t bible bash you 🙂

Watch, read, listen to something that you know is going to give you a proper belly laugh.

It frees up your mind so much and you cannot even be bothered to say sorry to the minions, their spell is broken.

4. Read the book called “The Chimp Paradox by Professor Steven Peters”. It has some super ideas on how to deal with people who are difficult e.g. how to be assertive but fair when you are being given a hard time.

Check Proverbs 16:32. A super Proverb.

If you struggle with these things and get home at the end of the day and feel all frustrated, then check out this post about what to do:

Sleep 101 – Earplugs are the way forward. I know but try this / 2 hour theory / 20 minute reset

Earplugs are the way forward. I know but try this

Did you try ear plugs once and not get on with them and then take them out as you thought they were not comfortable.

Do you still get broken sleep because of the noise but will not use ear plugs.

When you actually manage to get used to them, they are amazing and your sleep pattern gets super blessed though. It is so worth getting used to them as it is prudence for a night when you have to sleep.

Let me tell you how to get used to them:

  • Get really tired one night and put them in thus you will just sleep and that is one night done getting used to them.
  • Conquer the belief that they are not good by counteracting with the belief that the prudence for the long-term benefits are worth it.
  • I reckon roughly three or four nights getting used to them and you will think they are super.

Oh by the way, if you have trouble hearing as you have blocked up lugholes, then gently warm up some pure virgin olive oil and put it in a very clean squeezy bottle with a thin end (like a syringe) and put it in your ears to soak for 2 minutes when you are laying on your side. Do this for a few days and tidy up with a tissue each time obviously.
Otex eardrops is even better if you can afford.

My 2 hour theory

Are you tired and know so well that you need to sleep but you are laying there annoyed and worried about tomorrow as you cannot sleep?
When you lay down, your pulse drops and your body regains energy anyway.

Why not do that for 30 minutes, an hour and thrn learn 2 hours. Lie down and tell yourself that your body is regaining energy and if I sleep then I sleep (nothing to worry about then).
What you will find is that with this attitude you will soon sleep anyway.

20 minute reset

Did you get little sleep last night and feel tired today?

Do not go to sleep for 7 hours in the day time to catch up as this will mess up your sleep pattern. Do that if you are truly exhausted though.

What I am saying is set your alarm and try sitting in your bed or a comfy chair for 20 minutes and just relax with your eyes closed. It does wonders to pick you up for the rest of the day and it feels like a reset for you.

Shalom 🛏

Satisfaction in thankfulness to God for His gifts, the best bitterness remedy

John Piper is a famous preacher and he once said “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him”.

I really do believe this is right.

Also did you know that the opposite of bitterness is thankfulness and being thankful gets rid of the bitterness.

SO…

Make yourself a coffee and sit down with your favourite bible version. Maybe read a Psalm for a bit of faith and just think of the good things in your life and say thankyou to God for them and why you like them.

This will be satisfying and enjoyable if done right:

– “Jesus, thankyou for your steadfast love in giving me this house after I was homeless before, I am so happy to have a roof and warmth. Even if I am alone this Christmas, you are with me always”.

– “Jesus, thankyou for coffee lattes that are delicous and they do not cost much”.

– “Thankyou for chocolate, it is a rather nice thing, I am so thankful that we are in an easy country.”

– “Jesus thankyou for my warm snuggly dressing gown and slippers, they help me to be cosy”.

– “Jesus thankyou that I have you as my closest friend who holds me by my right hand. I know I am homeless, but let’s layer up and have a coffee and a prayer in the tent”.

– Think of your own ones. Maybe for your family or for you health but remember to say why you like it so that it works and say thankyou.

Selah…. shalom 🍰

P.S don’t drink too much caffeine. Be sensible please.

List of pickups for when your in a pickle

This is just my list that works for me when I am down. Print out your own list and refer to it when you are down.

I usually get to 12 and I feel fine again:

1. Just say “Father you are good” and try and mean it – even this is praise which is the highest form of faith.

2. Forgive your enemies from your heart and confess your sins – if there is sin from either party then this may stop the downer.

3. Put your Ephesians 6 armor properly whilst relaxing your body.

4. 2 – 10 minutes bible. An easy to manage time and picking it up for 30 seconds starts a 10 minute read.

5. Speak in tongues.

6. Use your authority in Christ to get rid of the demons.

7. Ask for prayer from someone.

8. Speak to another Christian.

9. Do some exercise like a 10 minute run.

10. Look at some nice photographs or nice objects that you have specially collected in a shoe box.

11. Just laugh at something. A memory or a non-detailed list (even better) of funny stuff you have seen.

12. Do a silly little dance – make sure you do not get seen though lol. ☺️

13. Make a cuppa with three sugars.

14. Think of greater positive thoughts every time you get a negative thought.

15. Calm words like Selah and relax your body.

16. Run away in your imagination like a child but make sure Jesus would approve of what you think and do not do it too long as you will get down again as the brain will need to calm down after.

Bless ya! 🍪🍰🎂🍬🍫
Might be a hint just above 😋

Praise is the highest level of faith

Do you remember guys how in the old testament the Israelites won mighty battles when they were vastly out numbered. They did it while singing praise to God.

Praise is the highest level of faith as it takes place in the third heaven where the Seraphim and Cherubim are right next to God praising Him.

We should never use a sword to win our battles (the pen is mightier than the sword anyway), but why shouldn’t we be like those Israelites and think (don’t go singing in the office as it is a bad witness) of songs in our minds as we go through our challenges in the day:

• Hillsong Oceans when you need big faith to love someone who hates you or to give you faith to use your Luke 10:19-20 authority. Makes you do something amazing as it is a profound sounding song.

• The battle belongs to the Lord when you are in a cycling race event. Your strength is God you know therefore you can go very fast. A bit like the Israelite battles.

• How great thou art or The Maker by Chris August when you walk through the forest. You get peace out of this busy world as you enjoy creation more through seeing clearer how much of a good designer He is.

• If you are struggling to praise then just say “Father you are good” and mean it in your heart. This is a big faith power pellet you have just swallowed.

• Think of your own ones guys and feel the boostings.

 

Praise Jesus 😃

Do not get too relaxed

If you are a Christian and you are feeling great and having good times (most usually after serving God this occurs), then keep your happy times rolling by not getting too relaxed as that is when the enemy catches you out and steals all your joy.

Luke 4:13 And the devil had finished tempting Jesus, left Jesus and then waited for an opportune time.

For example (ficticious scenarios):

  • You just preached and you know it was good as you know that your heart did it for Jesus when you did it. You are not married and when you get back home you are happy and decide too ask your girlfriend round for a coffee and chat. You feel great but you get too relaxed and the enemy tempts you with sin. You and your girlfriend snog before marraige and this short mad fun sin robs all your joy for a long time to come.
    Stay on your toes, you should have went to a cafe.
    Note: I have a girlfriend but this did not happen to us and we also have wise backup plans in place for any frustrations.
  • You have quit smoking for a year and an old friend from your last job turns up and you have a lovely chat about old times. You feel relaxed and happy in his company so you take the fag he offers you and you are hooked again.
    You got too relaxed and stung by temptation. Also should have packed your E-cigarette to have as an alternative instead.
  • Think ahead about when this might happen to you. Think of an example yourself, be prudent and keep your joy rolling.

 

Shalom ☺
