Until An Opportune Time.

SATANS TRAP

Now when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time. Luke 4:13 New King James Version

 

This is something for every addict to remember.

Do not believe for a second that if you have recovered from an addiction like alcoholism that temptation will never rear its ugly head again.

The devil will wait until an opportune time to strike you so as to defeat you.

 

That is why it is important to have Christian mentors and support at all times.

“Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation.” Henry Ward Beecher

 

That is why it is important to memorize Scripture Verses to throw at him when He tempts you.

 

That is why it is important for you to maintain a constant relationship with Christ so the Holy Spirit will be there to help you overcome the temptation when it comes (and it will).

Christians who try to stand alone are doomed to fall. Joseph- Anthony: Green

 

I have used this method very successfully for many years with overcoming alcoholism.

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God my rescuer) for blessing me with the Divine protection You abundantly provide through Your Word, Your Spirit Helper and the mentors You so graciously provide to rescue me from the wicked ones wiles. I praise You in the name of the mighty warrior king who victoriously defeated him on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.

Is It Christian?

Good morning precious brothers and sister.

May I humbly request your help in a matter.

Mom wants me to go to a hypnotist with her to stop smoking. I am unsure if it is a Christian thing to do.

What is your opinion please Is it okay for a Christian to go to a hypnotist to stop an addiction? Please explain why   scripturally   why or why not.

Thank you.

Like a Roaring Lion.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8 New King James Version

Lions stalk unseen in tall grass. They charge quickly and roar to paralyze their prey. They take their prey with no mercy, many times eating it alive.

So too does the devil and his minions prey upon Christians. Just when you think it is safe is when they attack.

 

That is why we need the Holy Spirit to be our guide in life. He is like the birds in the trees that sound the alarm when they see the lions approaching. When you have a gut feeling not to go somewhere or do something you had better pay attention. That is the Holy Spirit chirping to you of appending doom.

I can think of when a tempting contract was offered to me and a strong feeling said to not walk but run away from it. It was hard but I obeyed and found out later is was a very bad contract that would have caused me a lot of grief.

It is also why we need good Christian mentors in our lives, because many times they have fallen pray to some of the devils schemes he may be preparing for us.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KaEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to Your protective voice so I do not fall easy victim to one of the tricksters schemes. I humbly request this in the name of He who always exposed the wicked one Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
