Negative Emotions hinder the Blessings

In my own spiritual growth, the greatest breakthrough was when I learned that negative emotions caused God could not to bless me. Because God taught us this truth we spend our lives teaching people about it.

When we draw a horizontal line through the middle of a page we can write good emotions in the top half. Things like those written in Gal 5:22: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law.” 

In the bottom half, we write those negative things that are Gal 5:19-21:  “The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

These are the works of the flesh. If I allow these lower emotions like impatiens, fear, or worry into my heart then the lower emotions have come into the above.

The top half, above the line, is where my spirit is present, it is also my heart. It is also where we hope and imagine. Our hearts belong to God and we should love God with all our hearts. In other words; keep the below from coming above.

Proverbs 4:23:  “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”  NIV.

Strictly speaking, when the below come above, we have a sinful state in the heart, which God does not bless. God is a good God who wants to bless us with all the good things we can imagine. When the below comes above, our imaginations are not life-giving.

The above is the kingdom of God within us. It can be described as a garden in which seeds must be sown into. If we allow the below into the above it will be compared to corrupted seeds that are being planted and it brings forth thorns and thistles. We are now like Adam, we are not guarding the garden; not guarding the heart.

However, who can Guard the heart completely? Who can keep the below out of the above by themselves? There is no other way than to follow Jesus.

Luk 9:23:  “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” 

We take up our cross and we nail to the cross those sinful thoughts like worry, fear, and shame. We do this in the same way that Jesus was crucified, we also crucify the sinful man. We do this while using communion. When we crucify the flesh we eat the flesh of Christ. Then we drink the blood of Jesus which is a seal for our hearts and provides us with a blood-washed conscience. Heb.12:22.

The below can no longer come above, we are sealed with the blood of Jesus, now you can go ahead and have a great day while giving God thanks and praise.

This is the only way to stay above.

Deuteronomy 28:1-8  And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. 

Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. 

Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. 

Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. 

Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

Are you overcome by Fear?

A Person who have gone through our Alpha Omega Cave some months ago phoned us with a fearful, shaking, timed voice. She is being tortured by overcoming voices, nagging and bringing up the past, like a tape playing over and over. When she tries to have quiet time it gets worse and she does not know if it is from God. She is afraid and nervous, the tension makes her shake so much that she cannot do her work. She is affecting her colleges and they have moved her to a separate room.

I am sure that there are many others who are being affected this way. Perhaps you know someone who is in the same state. It might be that you are praying with someone who is not overcoming nervous problems or illnesses of some kind.

It is should categorically be established that the things mentioned above is not from God.

We know from the Lord’s Prayer that the will of God must come to earth and it must be in earth as it is in heaven. How is it in heaven? Stop thinking that God wants bad things to happen to you, God is good. Go read about the character of God in Galatian 5:22. God is love, joy peace, longsuffering. God loves us. God is love. He sent Jesus to show His character, which is to heal all the sick, and free the oppressed no matter what your sin is or what your problem is.

If fear has come into you in such a way that it is destroying your life it is because fear is in your heart. You have a fearful heart. But you have already given your heart to Jesus.

All the above is a result of a guilty conscience. The heart is the conscience.

YOU MUST LEARN TO GAURD YOUR HEART!

We take thoughts captive, we do introspection. What thoughts came into your heart? Now that you know that negative thoughts are not from God we should deal with them. You deal with them in the same way you deal with an unwanted aggressive dog in your home. It’s time to put your foot down and chase that dog out with your God given authority. Notice the words ‘Violent’ and ‘Force’ in the next verse.

Mat. 11:12:  “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.”

The Biblical way of dealing with negative thoughts feelings and emotions is to know that the Bible calls it the flesh. Gal 5:19 the works of the flesh is every bad feeling, thought and emotion. Jesus overcome the flesh at Calvary. Unfortunately He did not take it out of us, but we overcome them in the same way He did.

In Gal 5:25 we are taught how to do it. It says if you struggle with the flesh, CRUSIFY it!

This is what we do when we use communion. When we eat the bread we eat the flesh of Christ. Because He overcame the flesh we can do the same. Read Luke 9:23. Now comes the most important part. Drink the wine, which is the blood of Jesus.

Heb 10:22:  “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.” 

If those thoughts dare to come back you bombard them with this scripture. Your conscience is blood washed You are sealed against death thoughts in the same way the Israelites were saved from death in Egypt because they applied the blood of the lamb of God  to their door posts. All day you meditate on the meaning of the blood of Jesus and the work of the cross and you will be free and you will know how to remain free and saved from the wicket, evil, nature of the sinful man.

Are you living in the Blessing?

I inquired of one of our guests, how things were in this New Year and he responded in the following way. “I work very hard for my boss but he does not want to increase my wages. My boss said that everything is more expensive and he can’t afford to pay me more”. This is the way the conversation went as I began to realize that the man’s focus is his boss. He can’t put too much pressure on the boss because he could lose his job. Strictly speaking, his boss is his provider.  I wonder how many people have this same problem at this time in our country? So many of the men are working in other countries while wives and children are alone at home.

This does not sound like the blessing that God promised His people. It sounds like a curse.  

 I would like to suggest shifting the focus.

 Stop focusing on being the provider, only focus on guarding your heart. Read the following carefully word by word.

Pro 4:23:  “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” 

This proverb is saying that all the issues of life come out of the state of the heart. Finances is only one of the issues that we have.

The heart is the conscience and we must love God with all our heart, we must keep all His Commandments if we are going to love Him. If we should do this all the blessings that is written in Deuteronomy 28 is ours.

Deut 28:8:  “The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”

God will bless everything you do if you make the heart your first priority. God is our provider! Let’s face it, we cannot trust people. People might have good intentions but they are only people. Never think that people can provide for us, even if they might want to, they are subject to change but God never changes. God made the world and the universe with a word, don’t you think the least we can do is to keep our heart from sin so that He can live in us constantly and be our provider? If you worry, you are not keeping your heart. Then God is no longer the ruler of your heart, fear is ruling in your heart. It’s idol worship.

God loves us, God wants to provide all the issues of the heart. God wants to bring ideas to us, the earth has never seen, but He cannot find a guarded heart. Our negative emotions and feelings walk in and out of our hearts.

The way we think causes the curse and not the blessing.

If we make the heart the focus of our lives God provides in many creative ways. If you love only God as in the first commandment, the second commandment follows automatically. To love your neighbor as yourself. Because God does bless you, you are automatically a blessing to your workplace and to your colleagues. God will show you how to bring extra income to that business that will cause you to be promoted. You will be a blessing in everything you do!

Go and be a blessing!

Please comment, we love to hear your thoughts.

The Power of Agreement in the New year

In this New Year, I would like to welcome our new readers who have gone through the cave. Most of our new readers have experienced the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit who brought them here in wonderful ways.

It is a time for doing introspection so that we can experience the blessings of God constantly. It’s a time for house cleaning and rearranging our lives so that we have a clear conscience by which we have greater confidence towards God and man.

There is nothing as good as to have a clear conscience. This is the way to have the expectancy that good things are coming our way.

One of the other main things that bring God onto the scene of our lives is the power of agreement.

Mat 18:19:  “Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”
