JESUS, ANSWER TO DEPRESSION?

Are you intense, stressed out and have hypertension as you strive to achieve your goals in life? Do you think about what every new day has in store for you? Have you planned for contingencies in life such as mid life crisis? I ask that in particular as I did not prepare for it and was totally not ready for the things that took place. The problem was, I didn’t understand how certain events in life can produce enormous pressure on me and not really be aware what was causing it; such as, my daughter’s wedding, my brother having a massive stroke and almost died, my son joining the army instead of accepting a full scholarship to USC, my father died, and then my mother died. There is more but that should suffice to get the point across. It caused me to unconsciously become depressed and not be on top of my game in society.  In my case, I was not familiar with mid life crisis and didn’t realize what affect it was having on me until I asked one of my church elders for advice about my condition. After having asked me a lot of questions, he asked me if I was familiar with mid life crisis and I answered, not really. The first thing he did was pray with me about it asking God to give me understanding what I was going through, then he told me that I was having  full blown case of mid life crisis. Jesus is very familiar with being stressed out and understands what we go through. He knew what was waiting for Him on the cross as He asked the Father to take away the problem but always submitted Himself to His God.  Matthew 26:39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” James 5:13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray.

He explained in great detail what it is all about and how it works. This was all new to me! God has much to say about such things in our life.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:

2 A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;

3 A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away;

7 A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;

8 A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.

Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned and saw under the sun that — The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.

God revealed all of this to King Solomon so he could record it for us to learn. The problem exists that people do not want to believe God. Therefore, they do not receive the blessings God wants to give them and they suffer many of the afflictions mentioned above. Psalms 78:22 Because they did not believe in God, And did not trust in His salvation. But if they give themselves over to God and believe what He says they will receive His help in time of need. Psalms 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all.

Are you seeking an answer to our problems in life? There is an answer! 1Corinthians 15: 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 19:26 With God all things are possible.

Seek peace and pursue it through Jesus! He is waiting for you to ask Him! God bless you!

DECISION TEXAS TOUR 2017 THOUGHTS AND NOTES

Attending the Decision Texas, Lone Star Tour reception was a real blessing as I was inspired, encouraged, shocked, and saddened by the things Franklin Graham had to say. He showed us videos of the horrendous flood in Houston caused by Hurricane Harvey. He showed the many people working to help the people who lost everything in that storm. They prayed for, cleaned, fed, and comforted those suffering from such great loss. Franklin Graham said that Samaritans Purse would be there for about three years helping people.

Franklin Graham showed videos of their relief work in Puerto Rico, Dominica, and Barbuda and said most of the home were leveled especially in Barbuda where all the homes were destroyed. The devastation is unbelievable.

He said that they had a request from the United Nations headquarters to set up a field hospital eleven miles from Mosel in Iraq. Isis has killed and maimed so many people in Mosel there was a great need for a hospital as there were none available for these poor injured people. Refugees were fleeing Mosel heading into the desert to get away from the bloodshed and the Isis sharp shooters were targeting the children of the refuges killing and maiming them. LITTLE CHILDREN! It took thirty days to set up the hospital and staff it. There were sixty doctors and nurses on duty 24/7 and operated on more than four thousand people that fled Mosel trying to get away from Isis. The hospital compound was in shelling distance from Mosel so they had to erect a fifteen foot concrete blast wall around the ten acre hospital compound with solid steel gates and was guarded by the Kurds. Franklin Graham said that there were children screaming and crying, some had lost arms, legs, eyes, shot in the head and the doctors were relentless in helping these children. He asked all of us to pray hard for these people.

The Florida Keys was one of the areas hard hit by the hurricanes of recent date. This area is heavily homosexually dominated. There were people who were homosexual who suffered damage and lost their homes. The Samaritans Purse disaster relief chaplains prayed with and for these people and some surrendered to Christ. Praise the Lord!

Samaritans Purse and the BGEA are constantly helping people all over the world and have invitations from governments such as North Vietnam to go preach to them. They have a wounded warrior camp in Alaska and have helped hundreds of veterans and their husbands or wives to reconcile their marriages and show them how they can still live productive lives. Hundreds have received Christ through that program.

Pray for Samaritans Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association! I think it is amazing that none of what they do ever is reported in the news. God just continues to use them and bless them daily! They set a great example for all Christians showing that if we work together more can be done in serving our Lord Jesus Christ.

Continue to pray for our nation that it will turn back to God!

Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD!

HOW DO YOU KNOW THERE IS ETERNAL LIFE?

 

ETERNAL LIFE MEANS ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED OR THERE WOULD BE NO ETERNAL LIFE!

There are those who teach that a believer could fall from grace and lose his salvation and they search for different translations, commentaries to find verses that say what they want it to say rather than what God ordained it to say. There is nothing wrong with using these various materials for research of God’s Truth but all too often it is manipulated. It is the Holy Spirits job to give us understanding of what Jesus teaches and to reveal the Truth. Millennialism has a real problem accepting the old ancient ways of the Bible.

UNDERSTAND THAT ETERNAL LIFE IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE IF IT IS NOT ETERNAL LIFE!

 John 10:28 And I give them eternal life; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.

1 John 2:25 And this is the promise that He has promised us — eternal life.

Eternal life is a gift Jesus gives when one receives Jesus into their heart (Romans 6:23 The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.) an confesses that he is a sinner.

1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Romans 10:9-13 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”

To those who are trying so hard to sound so intellectual and theological to the point they actually say and believe that no one can understand the Bible unless someone like themselves explains it to them. However, the Bible tells plainly what God has to say about why He uses preachers.

1 Corinthians 1:18-21 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.  For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

The Bible always explains itself and reveals to our hearts what God wants us to know.

Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”

Dear heavenly Father write upon the fleshly table of our hearts Your spiritual truths and revelations as You promised You would thousands of years ago and even now in the new covenant according to Your own Word write your truth in our hearts and minds revealing Your glory to us individually. In Jesus name, amen!
