FAITH
Apostle Paul says: “…for whatever is not from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23)

Faith is that leaning of the whole human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness. Faith is always based on the word of God. Your faith, trust and confidence in God starts with what God say about your life and how you live it. Faith is not about your feelings, your thoughts, or what other's believe to be true; your faith is not based on your past or what someone else has experienced in the same situation - faith completely rests on what God says in His word. True faith is your positive response to what God has already done by grace through Jesus Christ. Your faith is either in Jesus and what He accomplished through his death, burial, and resurrection; or in yourself and what you do. God through Jesus Christ has already provided everything you will ever need; and this is Grace (Peter 2:24). The New Testament says the just shall live by faith and this is a Biblical principle (Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11, Hebrews 10:38).

Every individual has the choice to place confidence in God or to place confidence in something else. When you are making a decision what do you focus on? Do you focus your attention on your range of perceptions, your understanding or your thoughts about the problem or situation? If you depend on your own understanding; if you are impressed with your own wisdom and you do not acknowledge God in your decisions; you will sin (Proverbs 3:5-7). You will not walk by faith and you will receive the same results that Adam and Eve received.

Remember what the Apostle Paul says: “…for whatsoever is not from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23). For whatever does not originate and proceed from faith is sin, whatever is done without a conviction of its approval by God is sinful. The opposite of faith is sin as you know, according to the Word of God (Romans 14:23). When you are acting in faith you will feel the emotion of trust towards God. When you are in sin you will feel the emotion of fear (Romans 8:15, 2 Timothy 1:7, 1 John 4:18). You will fear and hide from God. This is what happened to Adam and Eve in the Garden after they sinned. Listen to what Adam said to God after he sinned: “I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid”.

Many people have questions about the word believe. In James 2:19 - it says: “even the demons believe in God and tremble”. We see from scripture that demons believe in God, they believe that God exists and they have a fearful respect for God. But demons are not born again, they are not part of the Kingdom of God (John 3:5), and they do not have eternal life. Demons know that God exists, but they do not put trust or confidence in God, God's word, or God's Way. The big question is what do you believe to be true in your life? What are you persuaded of on this earth? What do you put your confidence in? The answers to those questions are what you really believe and have faith in; I say trust and confidence in God. Your faith should begin with what God say about your situation or problem. So, you see, it is impossible to please God without faith, anyone who wants to come to him must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. True faith completely rests on what God says in His word (Romans 10:17). Amen

Psychological, Physical, Sexual, Child, Drug, Alcohol abuse are Demon strongholds

Psychological Abuse Is A Demon Stronghold

proverbs 3:5-6   Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.  Remember that if you emotionally abuse others, threat or harm your loved ones, humiliate them, blaming them, controlling them, intimidating your loved ones, harassing them, verbally abuse them, or control them, bullying them, and keeping them in isolation.  It is not the way and how the Lord God sees it Romans 12:2  It is up to you not to conform to this world with psychological abuse but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what the will of God is, what is good, acceptable and perfect.  1 Thessalonians 5:23   Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Physical Abuse Is A Demon Stronghold

 1 Corinthians 13:4-7    Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing especially physical abuse of your loved ones, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.  So physically assaulting your loved ones, hitting them, slapping or pushing them.  Remember if they have history of unexplained falls, unexplained bruising in well protected areas or soft parts of the body it’s because they have been physically abused, bruising in different stages of healing, unexplained burns in unusual locations, unexplained fractures to any part of the body, unexplained slap, kick, punch of finger marks injury shape similar to an object, untreated medical problems, weight loss due to malnutrition or dehydration, these all related to physical abuse.  Ephesians 6:4 People of the world, do not provoke and physically abuse your children but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.  Psalm 91:1-16 And remember that he who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”  For he will deliver you from the snare of abuse.

Sexual Abuse Is A Demon Stronghold

Matthew 11:28  Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Psalm 9:9  The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble of rape, indecent exposure, sexual harassment, inappropriate looking or touching, sexual teasing or innuendo, sexual photography, subjection to pornography or witnessing sexual acts, indecent exposure and sexual assault or sexual acts to which the adult has not consented or was pressured into.  We must remember when sexually abused, you may discover a sudden change in your behaviour, sudden onset of confusion in you, incontinence, withdrawal, overtly sexual behaviour/language by the vulnerable adult, self-inflicted injury, disturbed sleep pattern/poor concentration, pain or itching, bruising or bleeding in the genital area, sexually transmitted disease/urinary tract/vaginal infection, bruising to upper thighs and arms, frequent infection all this because you have been abused.  Habakkuk 1:3  Why do you make me see iniquity, and why do you idly look at wrong?  Destruction and violence are before me; strife and contention arise.  1 Corinthians 6:9-11 or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who sexually abuse, practice homosexuality will inherit the kingdom of God.

Child Abuse Is A Demon Stronghold

Shocking and rather disturbing …. about 50,000 cases of sexual abuse were recorded by Police and Local Authorities in the two years to March 2014,  but the findings indicate that official figures vastly underestimate the true scale of child sexual abuse.  The actual number of children abused in that period is thought to be as many as 450,000.

What are the causes of child abuse?

We have to ask ourselves what is the true cause of child abuse.  There is not any single fact which causes child abuse; abuse usually occurs in families where there is a combination of risk factors.  Abuse and neglect occur most often in families who are under pressure and lack support.  Most abuse other than sexual abuse occurs in families to which some, or all, of the following apply: Poverty, Lack of education, Serious marital problems, Violence between family members, Lack of support from the extended family, Loneliness and social isolation.  In some cases, the abuser may also display the following: Very high expectations of the child and what the child should achieve.  The parent may have been abused as a child, a lack of knowledge and skills in bringing up children, Low self-esteem and self-confidence, Depression, Alcohol and/or drug abuse, Mental or physical ill health.  Certain community attitudes may encourage child abuse also.

These include: Acceptance of the use of violence and force, Acceptance of physical punishment of children Acceptance of parents "ownership" of children and their right to treat children as they see fit, Racism.  But who are the abusers?  With child sexual abuse, the overwhelming majority of abusers are male, and the majority of victims are females although many boys are also abused. Sexual abuse is associated with attitudes to women and sex that men learn from a young age as well as unequal power relationships between men and women and adults and children.  Both men and women commit physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect. It often depends on which parent spends most time with the child. Child abuse usually takes place in the home with someone that the child knows rather than with strangers.  Proverbs 22:6    God had said that you should train up your child in the way he or she should go; even when he is old he will not depart from you. Colossians 3:20   Children, obey your parents in everything and forgive them for their abuse, for this pleases the Lord.

Drug Abuse Is A Demon Stronghold

 We seem to be losing the drug war, we must remember drugs Is a serious public health problem that affects almost every community and family in some way. Each year drug abuse causes millions of serious illnesses or injuries among people. Abused drugs include: Methamphetamine, Anabolic steroids, Club drugs, Cocaine, Heroin, Inhalants and Marijuana.  Drug abuse also plays a role in many major social problems, such as drugged driving, violence, stress, and child abuse. Drug abuse can lead to homelessness, crime, and missed work or problems with keeping a job. It harms unborn babies and destroys families. There are different types of treatment for drug abuse. But the best is to prevent drug abuse in the first place.  Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me, so seek God from your drug addiction.  John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life

Alcohol Abuse Is A Demon Stronghold

Proverbs 20:1  Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise. Ephesians 5:18 And do not get drunk with wine or any other spirit, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit of God. When we abuse alcohol; we continue to drink even though you know your drinking is causing problems. If you continue to abuse alcohol, it can lead to alcohol dependence. Alcohol dependence is also called alcoholism. You are physically or mentally addicted to alcohol. You have a strong need, or craving, to drink.  What doe’s Alcohol abuse means having unhealthy or dangerous drinking habits, such as drinking every day or drinking too much at a time. Alcohol abuse can harm your relationships, cause you to miss work, and lead to legal problems such as driving while drunk (intoxicated). Isaiah 5:22 Misery to those who are heroes at drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink, Isaiah 5:11 Sorrow to those who rise early in the morning, that they may run after strong drink, who tarry late into the evening as wine inflames them.

Alcoholism has little to do with what kind of alcohol one drinks, how long one has been drinking, or even exactly how much alcohol one consumes, but it has a great deal to do with a person's uncontrollable need for alcohol, most alcoholics can't just "use a little willpower" to stop drinking.  The alcoholic is frequently in the grip of a powerful craving for alcohol, we must take on board that 88,000 deaths are annually attributed to excessive alcohol use and that Alcoholism is the 3rd leading lifestyle-related cause of death in the nation.  Excessive alcohol use is responsible for 2.5 million years of potential life lost annually, or an average of about 30 years of potential life lost for each death and also up to 40% of all hospital beds in the United Kingdom) are being used to treat health conditions that are related to alcohol consumption. Romans 12:2 We must remember not to be conformed to this world with alcohol, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.  Amen

In Remembrance of Jesus Christ’s Sacrifice On the Cross

Posted by Boguslaw Ziarko, With 0 Comments, Category: Announcements, Latest,

Written by Bogdan the Exorcist

They spat upon Jesus

We must remember what the body of Jesus Christ actually endured during those hours of torture before and on the cross.  This was and is probably the crudest and most humiliating form of punishment and eventual death.  We must remember Jesus came to earth for the very purpose of offering his physical body to suffer crucifixion; death being the perfect atoning sacrifice for the sins of those he died for, so they could have the opportunity to return to fellowship with the eternal Godhead.

We must remember the first physical trauma that was inflicted on Jesus.  A soldier struck Jesus face and told him to be silent, and then the palace guards blindfolded him and mockingly taunted him.  They spat upon Jesus and he was bleeding at this point and the blood, blood just poured on the floor.  When morning came, Jesus was battered and bruised, dehydrated and exhausted from a sleepless night.  Next, Jesus was stripped of his clothing and his hands were tied to a post above his head.  Then the whipping began 39 lashes in all.

The Blood just poured out of Jesus

The whip consisted of several heavy leather thongs with two balls of lead.  This heavy whip was brought down with full force repeatedly across Jesus’ shoulders, back and legs.   At first the thongs cut through Jesus’ skin, the blood, blood wept out and poured on the floor.  As the blows continued, they cut deeper into the tissues bringing more blood, blood and it oozed from the veins of his skin and finally spurted arterial blood, producing large bruises and cuts.

Moreover, the skin on the back of Jesus was hanging in long ribbons and the entire area was an unrecognisable mass of torn, bleeding tissue and the blood, blood just poured out of Jesus.  When this beating finally stopped, the half fainting Jesus was then untied and allowed to slump to the stone pavement, wet with his own precious blood.  The roman soldiers still needed a crown to make their travesty complete; flexible branches covered with long thorns were plaited into a shape of a crown and this was then pressed into Jesus scalp.

This caused copious bleeding on Jesus’ scalp, blood amassed and poured out of his scalp.  After mocking and striking Jesus, the soldiers took hold of the crown and pressed it even deeper into Jesus’ head and more bleeding and blood, blood just poured out of Jesus.

Jesus was at this point crucified

We must remember the clots of blood and serum that Jesus lost, the wounds he suffered and the excruciating pain he suffered.  Jesus again was whipped and even more blood, blood just poured out of Jesus on the floor.  Jesus tried to walk erect but the weight of the heavy beam, together with the shock produced by copious blood loss, made it difficult, Jesus still bleeding and sweating the cold clammy sweat of shock.

Simon was ordered to place the patibulum on the ground and Jesus was quickly thrown backward with his shoulders against the wood.  The legionnaire felt for the depression at the front of the wrist and he drove a heavy square, wrought iron nail through the wrist and deep into the wood.  Blood spirted and just poured out of Jesus’ wrist, and the legionnaire quickly moved to the other side and repeated the same action and more blood, blood pours out of Jesus’ wrist.

Then the left foot was pressed backwards against the right foot and with both feet extended toes down; a nail was driven through the arch of each, leaving the knees moderately flexed.  Jesus was at this point crucified and his blood was everywhere, it was Jesus Christ’s blood.

Jesus said forgive them for they know not what they do

As Jesus slowly sagged down, with more weight on the nails in the wrists, excruciating pain shot along the fingers, up the arms and exploded into the brain and more blood just poured out.  The nails in the wrists put pressure on the median nerves and as Jesus pushed himself upward, stretching, it was pure torment and as he placed his full weight on the nail through his feet, again searing agony tore through his nerves and bones of the feet and more blood, blood just poured out of Jesus.

At this point, his arms were fatigued, great waves of cramps swept over his muscles, knotting them in deep; relentless throbbing pain and more of his blood, blood just poured out.  The pectoral muscles were paralysed.  Jesus said, while trying to gain consciousness.  Father forgive them for they know not what they do.

Moreover, Jesus, looking to his mother Mary, women behold thy son.  My god, my god, why hast thou forsaken me? Hours of limitless pain, joints rending cramps, searing pain where tissue is torn, blood still pouring out of Jesus; it was an arena of Jesus Christ’s blood.

The great sequel in the infinite mercy of God towards man

Jesus said, I am poured out like water and all my bones are out of joint, my heart is like wax; it is melted into the midst of my bowels.   Jesus said:  it is now almost over.  In addition, he said. my strength is dried up like potsherd, my tongue cleaveath to my jaws and thou have brought me to the dust of death.  The body of Jesus was now in extreme pain, more blood poured out of him, and he felt the chill of death creeping through his tissues.  Jesus said, it is finished, father into thy hands I commit my spirit.

The rest you know, apparently to make doubly sure of death, the Roman soldier drove his lance through the inter-space between the ribs, upwards and into the heart and immediately there came out blood and water.

This was post mortem evidence that Jesus was dead.  Here we have had a glimpse of the epitome of evil that man has exhibited toward man and toward God.  It has been a terrible sight and more, enough to leave us despondent and depressed, how grateful we can be that we have the great sequel in the infinite mercy of God towards man.  AMEN.
