• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

Spiritual tool specifics

As a Christian we often just know in our knower that Jesus is alive as we experience Him.

Historians cannot deny that Jesus existed and by the logic of the process of elimination and apologetics (He was either bad, sad or divine), we can say He was and is the true divine son of God.

The devil tried to twist scripture when tempting Jesus and Jesus said the right scripture back.

The enemy may try and tempt you and accuse by using twisted and misused scripture. We have to use the sword of the Spirit then as is written in Ephesians 6. Learning your verses is vital for this as just like Jesus (but to a lesser degree), we can use a verse (the sword of the Spirit) to repel the enemies lies.

The main point I am making here is about using the sword of the Spirit skillfully with prior knowledge of the Word.

If you live alone in lockdown and get a mind battering from the enemy then this post is useful.

Dont be afraid. 1 Corinthians 10:13 is about not being tempted beyond what you can manage.

Hopefully this post has given you a head start if you ever need to use this spiritual tool.

Shalom

This post is quite timely! I definitely agree that one should be very equipped with the scriptures. In being able to see how all throughout scripture, the devil has been using the word of God in a twisted manner to lead believers astray, we must today be even more vigilant as now there are both the words of the Old and New Testament which we must understand completely and correctly.

Thank you for sharing. What comes to mind is perhaps it might bless people struggling and new believers to have some suggestions for passages of scripture to look up, meditate on and memorise.

For example psalm 23:1-6

Yes SeekerOfTruth,

Maybe encourage this:
A4 plain sheet on wall with small sticky notes of relevant verses for the current time. Small stickers so they dont overlap and can be seen. Check and update throughtout the week. The Word is being prioritized then and will help a lot.

Also:
Write down your jobs list in bullet points and put a number before the bullet point for its priority. Do high priority first. Lots of little jobs is good for the brain but this is a 'how' like the verses is a 'why'. Like book of Genesis creation 'why' and maybe years of evolution 'how'. Years being figurative for each day of creation. Good to default to when witnessing to a non believer as they probably cant deny the theory of evolutiom.

Shalom

May I say this; The Bible Is book of a collect of books and "NT" letters. Verses were added "thousands" of years later, Verses was added for lacation of what was said doing certain event or story and who said it and why. We should not take a verses out of a story and put it in our pocket and own it. We should know the story. And see how is related to our life. And why and who God, or a person said it. But we must know the stories.

Example: The 3 little Bears, Hantzel and Gretel, The Little Ginger Bread house, 3 Little Pigs, Humpty Dumpty, Pinocchio, Rip Van Winkle,

Grandma what a big nose you have, I will huff and puff and blow your house down, you have slept through a Great Revolution, follow the bread crumbs, your nose has grown awfully long and the more you talk the longer your nose grow"
Ice skating on a frozen pond.

I hope this is understood, The Bible has so many stories within stories especially in the Old Testament that you will never hear in a church setting. Only a few "clips" time after time again. So many stories of betrayal of ones close friend and your enemies has been the one who has protected you! Then when you read "proverbs" you see and understand that proverb more clearly because of, Bible told recorded events, you see plots of deception Orchestrated by God and His Angels, directed to His Children or others.

Covid-19 has been the perfect time for "The True Child of GOD" to read their Bible from front to back a few times, with a Good translation of the "Original Copied text"! In order to Get acquainted with "The GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob" as He is Written in "The Holy Scripture" and not in "The God of their Imagination" who they would like for Him to be.
Now that is "The Will of GOD" for YOU" "Even your Sanctification"!

" Lord, who have believe our report". How could it even be possible for a "True Child of God" get lonely and bored at home by them selves and "GOD the Father and The SON and The Paraclete" is in the room with them. Who wants company? Company is a distraction, When you have the "Triune"! That is why He has to "make us go into the World"! "If GOD had not place " NERO" in Rome, Christianity would not have scattered through out the World! "NERO's other name in secret, the Christians called him the "BEAST"! They scattered through out the world getting away from him. They did not mind, dying for the "Gospel of Jesus Christ". But Nero invented news ways for "Christians" to be torture and put to death! Jonah's Fish, is a stroll in the park, compared to entertainment in "Nero's" torture of Christians in the Coliseum". Many think in the early Church movement that many went out willly to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ! WRONG! The Spreading of The "Gospel was a Death sentence" a violent death awaits you! They were chase from city to city! Many feared for their life! That is how the true gospel of Jesus Christ gets out into the World, the false Gospel of Jesus is smooth and easy going, makes a lot of friends. They are still slaughtering true Christians through out the world, America is only about 4.5 percent of the world. American is not the "poster child" of true Christianity". But maybe "China" is.

Shalom, "my brother and sisters in Christ".
Many think because churches are in lockdown they are being "persecuted" because of Covid-19 lockdown.
Lockdown churches does not lock down "The Gospel of Jesus Christ", it makes the Gospel of Jesus Christ spreads. Lockdown churches frees, the Gospel of Jesus Christ". Do not believe the devils lies, Persecution spreads the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it always has. The Bible testifies to this truth. The longer you are in lockdown, the more Bible you might read and complete it. Is it not strange a person can get a college degree, and read a collection of "Romance novels" but cannot read a little book like the Bible. Within a couple of weeks. But they believe in God and believe it was written for them to read, so they can know God. but they will not read it. And the word is supposed to dwell in us "Richly" and Jesus declares He comes in the volume of the Book for it is written of Him. But they say they know Him. Many Christians knows the joy of the Holy Spirit. Is that not just a attribute?

Many need to take a walk over there in "North Korea"! Those Christians, will open your eyes over there the true meaning of "lockdown"!

Would we not agree, in times like these, "Stickynotes" is Not going to get the job done! A person needs to be "inoculated" with the Whole counsel of GOD". "Drink the Whole Bottle"! And make sure it is not a "placebo"! And stay in "isolation" until God says; it is safe to come outside, and maybe once the inoculation of the unadulterated Word takes effect, you might see things in a different Light! And found out what true Happiness is! For GOD has ween you off of that "micro dosing" of "theological Kool- aid"! By your inoculated and isolation produce by The Word of God.

Hi ploughboy, yes I agree its vital not to lift things out of context and its good to be made aware of this or reminded of it ....at the same time though for someone struggling it can be helpful to jog ones memory with some verses and also memorize psalms for example.
If they have been read in context, I'm still not sure I understand why that's wrong, if It's not manageable to have the whole bible committed to memory?

sometimes it is OK to taste His goodness

O taste and see that the Lord is good:
blessed is the man that trusteth in Him.

Psalm 34:8

... and be reminded


Bless you ....><>
