To Elieve Or Not To Believe

The enemy doesn’t only use questions to take over your mind , but it can be statements like “ don’t ask that person for help, they’ll look at you like your crazy” and with you saying “that’s true” he has worked a stronghold over your mind.

 

Romans 4:18-21 (New Century Version)

 18There was no hope that Abraham would have children. But Abraham believed God and continued hoping, and so he became the father of many nations. As God told him, "Your descendants also will be too many to count."[a]19Abraham was almost a hundred years old, much past the age for having children, and Sarah could not have children. Abraham thought about all this, but his faith in God did not become weak.20He never doubted that God would keep his promise, and he never stopped believing. He grew stronger in his faith and gave praise to God.21Abraham felt sure that God was able to do what he had promised.

  • Doubt is a spirit that satan uses to attack our mind. He’ll use questions like “did GOD really say…” or “does the word really mean…”.
  • Un-belief is much worse then doubt because doubt brings in the questions and un-belief is the result.

Ex: Even though both are bad, its better that I doubt that GOD will bless me with the job and I keep on praying every night that I’ll get it, then to just living life not expecting for GOD 2 bless me in any way nor change me when he clearly said he would.

  • It all starts off with a question…

Just like in the garden with eve and Adam, the devil launched a question and said

Genesis 3:1 (New Century Version) The Beginning of Sin

 1Now the snake was the most clever of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day the snake said to the woman,"Did God really say that you must not eat fruit from any tree in the garden?"

“That’s subtle (slight). The devil doesn’t fight with GOD or argue with the bible. He just raises a question and allows our mind to do the rest. When the question comes in such a simple way the obvious answer must be, ‘Well, he didn’t really mean…’ With that reaction, Satan has established a stronghold in your mind, and it takes little for him to move you from there to a total lack of belief”

THAT’S WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO NEVER GIVE UP ANDNEVER GIVE IN!

“One man said, ‘I was simple and native in those days. I believed anything I heard. I know better now.’ Satan robbed him of his FAITH and, in process, stole his joy and hope (expect).” The enemy will try to take everyone so never think that you’re the only 1 going through longsuffering, or temptation, or fights with those questions he puts in our minds. BUT know that you can be different and not NATIVE like that man said he was in the past, you can decide to keep your TRUST IN GOD, HAPPINESS, AND EXPECTANCY!!!

  • ”As soon as we let our guards down, even in the slightest, Satan sneaks up behind us and start whispering his lies” J.M

Romans 4:19-20 (New Century Version)

19Abraham was almost a hundred years old, much past the age for having children, and Sarah could not have children. Abraham thought about all this, but his faith in God did not become weak.20He never doubted that God would keep his promise, and he never stopped believing. He grew stronger in his faith and gave praise to God.

NEVER GIVE UP, JUST ABIDE IN HIS LOVE AND KEEP TRUSTING!!

“After the Holy Spirit called me into ministry I was elated- and humbled. I Thought Who am I that GOD should call me? I could think of hundreds of reasons why anyone but Joyce Meyer should be used by GOD. But I believed in his call and I had no doubts-not then.” -Joyce Meyer

^ ^ ^ PERFECT EXAMPLE^ ^ ^ She didn’t doubt GOD, even though she may not have understood the purpose, GOD DID! and that’s why he called her. Now look what her ministry has done, its blessed and brought so many people closer to CHRIST And its done it for me as well. He used her to get the glory, and that’s what he does, uses us as his vessels to glorify(worship;praise) his nameJ

TIP: No one will ever understand what GOD decides, so questioning him WON’T make sense.

Romans 11:33 (New Century Version)  33Yes, God's riches are very great, and his wisdom and knowledge have no end! No one can explain the things God decides or understand his ways.

“THAT’S HOW IT IS EACH TIME-A FRESH BATTLE AND A NEW AND JOYOUS VICTORY” J

GOD and Father of Abraham, [I COME TO YOU AS HUMBLE; LOWLY, AS I KNOW HOW. KNOWING AND CONFESSING MY SINS, AND THANKING YOU FOR LOVING AND FORGIVING ME LORD.] I Thank you for Abraham’s example. Help me to push aside the devil’s advances by totally trusting You and standing on Your promises for my life-even if no one else stands with me. In JESUS name, I ask and [trust] Amen. – Joyce Meyer

Just realize that the reason you fight is because GOD has a calling over your life, and the devil see’s that so he’s trying to take over your belief in any way imaginable but TRUST in GOD always, NEVER GIVE UP NOR GIVE IN. If you notice in the bible, it says so much about DON’T GIVE UP. Moses told the people in EXODUS14:12-14, ”Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."and the bible also says in ROMANS 8:37 THAT “…in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” & you can find many more scriptures in the bible as well … so just remember to keep the faith and don’t be afraid to look at the vision GOD has over your life, take it and soak it in and always humble yourself, meditate in GOD’S word, and you WILL, [I guarantee you] see his promises he made to and for you ! GOD BLESS, & STAY BLESSED. I love you Brother/sister!

GLORY BE TO GOD ALWAYSSSSS !!!!!

DEFEATING UNBELIEF

1 Peter 5:8-9 (New Century Version)

 8Control yourselves and be careful! The devil, your enemy, goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to eat.9Refuse to give in to him, by standing strong in your faith. You know that your Christian family all over the world is having the same kinds of suffering.

A lady once told me over a prayer line when I was battling with the un-belief of my belief and happiness, and peace during this fast that:

“Were always going to be faced with trials and tribulations, and to know this, its two scriptures in the bible that points it out, one is “No weapon formed against you shall prosper(Isaiah 54:17)” he never said ‘IF’ the weapon comes, he said NO weapon that’s formed against you shall prosper. The other one is “he that is within me is greater then he that is in this world, so I command you to bow your knee to the name of JESUS and leave me(1 john 4:4)< study it”. The enemy is always out on a mission when you’re doing something good for GOD. And when you’re struggling and suffering then that means your doing the right thing, and if you’re not suffering then you’re not doing the right thing. BUT what we must remember is to STAND even in our sufferings; we must not give up nor give in. We have to believe GOD and trust in him to bring us out because he will.”

Such powerful words she spoke to me !!!!

HERE’S SOME MORE SCRIPTURES THAT WILL HELP:

2 Corinthians 10:3
For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons.
2 Corinthians 10:2-4(in Context) 2 Corinthians 10(Whole Chapter)

2 Corinthians 10:4
For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,
2 Corinthians 10:3-5(in Context) 2 Corinthians 10(Whole Chapter)

Ezekiel 39:10
So that My people shall take no firewood out of the field or cut down any out of the forests, for they shall make their fires of the weapons. And they shall despoil those who despoiled them and plunder those who plundered them, says the Lord God.
Ezekiel 39:9-11(in Context) Ezekiel 39(Whole Chapter)

Joel 2:8
Neither does one thrust upon another; they walk every one in his path. And they burst through and upon the weapons, yet they are not wounded and do not change their course.
Joel 2:7-9(in Context) Joel 2(Whole Chapter)

(THOUGH WE ARE IN BATTLE, WE ARE NOTWOUNDED)

BUT HOLD FAST –

The Christian life isn’t just full of battles every single hour. God gives us joy, and peace, us Believers can have if we accept and pursue and keep and feed it (work on keeping).

“Peter wrote to the Corinthians about their enemy-warning them and urging them to be vigilant [watchful; alert], which is where we often put the emphasis. Just before he wrote those words, however, he said, ‘7Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.’(verse.7) As we read that verse, it tells us that we must remind ourselves of GOD’S love for us-GOD cares. Because GOD cares, we can trust him to take care of us.” – Joyce Meyer

“We need that as part of our foundation. And its not that we don’t have faith it’s just that the enemy tries to destroy OUR faith with his lies, like: ‘if GOD really cared about you, would he make you go through this trial?’ or ‘if GOD truly loved you, would he treat you this way?’ “–Joyce Meyer

“Those questions that the devil throws at you are full of lies. If he can make you think you’re not loved or that GOD doesn’t have best interests at heart, he can plant tiny seeds of unbelief. GOD wants you to remain strong and true like Abraham and over believers in the bible.” – Joyce Meyer

“The more faithful you are, the more you have to resist him and his lies of unbelief”      –Joyce Meyer

TiP: whenever you are dealing with anything the devil might throw at you I just encourage you to keep the faith because you never know how many lives you can touch with that 1 situation. Let GOD FULLY pull you out of the situation and just watch how his name gets the GLORY. You can all live in either fear, despair, pain, not feeling loved, negative thoughts, burdens, loneliness or you can choose to live in happiness, joy, PEACE, no worries, relaxed, LOVED, appreciative, humble, healthy, and soooooo much more but the thing is “ITS Y O U R CHOICE” so choose which one you want to live in right now (& it can be more than 1, cus GOD WANTS US TO LIVE A ‘FULL’ LIFE THAT’S WHY HE SENT JESUS) and PURSUE it. Im a witness, I lived in bondage for a lot of yrs but I made a choice that I wanted to take JESUS promise of an ABUNDANT life and run with it and never look back, and I’m here to say WHAT THE DEVIL MEANT FOR MY BAD, GOD TURNED IT FOR MY GOOD. CUS WE HELP OTHERS WITH OUR TESTS, IT’S CALLED A TESTIMONY. GOD BLESS J

ITS TIME TO LIVE 2010 IN FREEDOM!!!

I LOVE YOU ALL !!

DEAR HEAVENLY FATHER, [I TRUST YOU AND I COME TO YOU SO HUMBLE , BOWING DOWN AT YOUR FEET, THANKING YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND CARE FOR ME]. THE ENEMY OFTEN TRIES TO FILL ME WITH UNBLEIF AND MAKE ME DENY YOUR POWERFUL LOVE FOR ME. BUT LIKE ABRAHAM, I STAND FIRM ON YOUR PROMISES. THANK YOU FOR THE COMFORT I FIND IN YOUR ASSURANCE THAT YOU’RE ALWAYS WITH ME. AMEN

Princess I am just curious why the hell you are coming in a "I don't believe in God" experience and shoving religion down all of these persons' throats? It's people like that you make religion more hated and just another boil on the *** of humanity.

Yes, we should.

Princess is in a group called "Love Jesus Christ." Should we all join that one an go on an anti-religion diatribe? I'm sure they would all crap their pants.

Yes, do that.

Yes lets launch an attack on theist sites. I'll statrt by visitng the Islamofacists and discussing the merits of Mohammed marrying a 9 year old girl as his last wife and ******* her.

We could try it, just to see what happens.

Princess, I'm just curious, why do you believe in God?

I think you put this in the wrong section. This is the section for people who don't believe.

Do posts of this nature ever get removed when they're flagged?

It never ceases to amaze me how religion caught on. When I read this post, well part of it, like Phage says it is so boring and repetitive, I could not believe the utter tosh and nonsense it contained. A snake is the smartest in the animal kingdom. Duh, great apes, dolphins, even my dog can edge a snake. But I guess it doesn't strike as much fear into the chattering masses if a Golden Retriever is espousing the virtues of eating or not eating deciduous fruit. How desperate do you have to be to need this stuff?<br />
<br />
Posting this stuff in this group is either total ignorance or total arrogance, the latter me presumes. Not believing in this drivel does not mean living without the light it means a light has gone on in side our heads. it's called self determination. Fundies are no better (or worse) than Taliban suicide bombers. Indoctrinated and incapable of free thought.

Panda, congrats. I'm fairly sure you're the only person who actually read every word of it. I certainly couldn't be bothered to read a long string of tedious quotes from a book of fake history.

Why does your god fear knowledge and hate questions? <br />
The only phrase I will ever contemplate coming from the mouth of your mighty jehovah is " Pay no attention to the man behind he curtain"

Rated up what Morbid said. Princess is trying to indoctrinate.... I mean, she is trying to make us see the virtue in drinking all her beer.

Patriciarose - there is neither need nor purpose to your visit here, so suspiciously soon after Princess's post. Do you follow her through all the groups she visits, and C&P your response at each one?<br />
<br />
I Elieve (sic) you do.

"Now the snake was the most clever of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day the snake said to the woman,"Did God really say that you must not eat fruit from any tree in the garden?""<br />
<br />
And, at this early point in the bible, we are supposed to take the whole thing seriously?<br />
<br />
(heads out to get his Beatrix Potter books)

I really like your write up here and it's so great to have God in our lives and believe in the Holy Spirit when you are at your bottom and when evil has almost taken over your life. <br />
<br />
It takes a very strong inner soul to defeat the evils in this world and I am strong and stand by my inner existence of truth and loving, and caring, and doing good for our fellow human beings and all who want to learn more about what ,why, how, where, and who God is and his Words of wisdom in the Bible teachings. <br />
<br />
God bless you all here on this site and hope the Holy Spirit is strong in your soul today!
