How To Receive The Power To Overcome Hate?

 Nehemiah Hephzibah on October 13, 2021

power to overcome hate

Hate is the launch pad for murder. The spirit of hate needs a reason to enter your heart. Hate is a spirit desirous of entering a human body. Like all spirits, it needs a dwelling place.

An evil spirits favourite place is the human heart.

Why? It has only one motive, to destroy the very creation of God. Its aim is, to devalue the power of the blood of Jesus.

Are you jealous of another’s blessing?

Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing. He decided to kill Jacob after their father passed away.

So Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father blessed him… Esau said in his heart, “The days of mourning for my father are very near; then I will kill my brother Jacob.”

GENESIS 27:41

“Esau said in his heart”, the scripture reveals. The heart is easily deceived, if not guarded.

The only power to overcome hate is the matchless love of Jesus

Jesus called us to love all. Jesus died on the cross and rose again the third day so we receive the power to love all. Every human being is created with purpose. Every believer has access to God’s love and blessings. God calling us special isn’t the same thing as another human calling us special.

After a believer receives Jesus as Lord and Saviour, ever child asks for the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit sheds love in the hearts of every believer who comes to God’s holy presence in all sincerity.

The Holy Spirit is a Comforter and Teacher, among many things the Holy Spirit is for believers. He will comfort us and teach us the way of God’s love. Remind us the words of Jesus so we can live victoriously over hateful spirits.

Fill your heart with God’s word. Be sanctified. Be holy. Receive the power to overcome hate. He will make all things new. Even a messed up heart. Maranatha, Praise God and amen!

Fear, Anxiety and Courage

By Reverend Paul N. Papas II

31 July 2012

You can have all three. Crowded places, large gatherings and movie theaters have a growing commonality for many.

The shooting tragedy in Aurora, Colorado brought the worst and best of us, once again. We as exceptional Americans have unique qualities that help us in many ways. When confronted with an obstacle someone usually finds away to go overcome it or go over, around, or through it without waiting for a government solution.

There were several named heroes in the Aurora shootings who gave their lives protecting loved ones or friends, just as their were in the field outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania on 9/11 who brought down plane so it would not hit the Capitol building.

Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is acting in spite of fear.

There are many named and unnamed heroes who serve and have served in the US Military; they gave the government a blank check to include their lives.

There is a commonality with survivors, victims, heroes, first responders, and witnesses of tragic events or crimes. They all experience emotion.  It is possible that each could be diagnosed and treated for the medical condition of a mental illness called PTSD.

PTSD can cause many symptoms. These symptoms can be grouped into three categories:

1. Re-experiencing symptoms:

  • Flashbacks—reliving the trauma over and over, including physical symptoms like a racing heart or sweating
  • Bad dreams
  • Frightening thoughts.

Re-experiencing symptoms may cause problems in a person’s everyday routine. They can start from the person’s own thoughts and feelings. Words, objects, or situations that are reminders of the event can also trigger re-experiencing.

2. Avoidance symptoms:

  • Staying away from places, events, or objects that are reminders of the experience
  • Feeling emotionally numb
  • Feeling strong guilt, depression, or worry
  • Losing interest in activities that were enjoyable in the past
  • Having trouble remembering the dangerous event.

Things that remind a person of the traumatic event can trigger avoidance symptoms. These symptoms may cause a person to change his or her personal routine. For example, after a bad car accident, a person who usually drives may avoid driving or riding in a car.

3. Hyperarousal symptoms:

  • Being easily startled
  • Feeling tense or “on edge”
  • Having difficulty sleeping, and/or having angry outbursts.

Hyperarousal symptoms are usually constant, instead of being triggered by things that remind one of the traumatic events. They can make the person feel stressed and angry. These symptoms may make it hard to do daily tasks, such as sleeping, eating, or concentrating.

It’s natural to have some of these symptoms after a dangerous event. Sometimes people have very serious symptoms that go away after a few weeks. This is called acute stress disorder, or ASD. When the symptoms last more than a few weeks and become an ongoing problem, they might be PTSD. Some people with PTSD don’t show any symptoms for weeks or months.

It is true most people would not want to think of PTSD as medical condition called a mental illness because of the Stigma attached the words mental illness.

PTSD and other the medical conditions of a mental illness are common and treatable.  If you or someone you know experience any of the symptoms please call your Doctor.

When you are confronted with an obstacle you can or someone can help you find away to go overcome it or go over, around, or through it.

Fear is okay and often healthy. Having some anxiety can be okay. Fear and anxiety can be debilitating if left unchecked. Have the courage to overcome.

How To Overcome Troubles In Your Everyday Life?

overcome troubles

March 15, 2021Author: Nehemiah Zion

Is there a way to overcome troubles? Before we get too troubled to deal with it. Trials and temptations will come and they will feel like winds and storms and waves of the sea.

Most people who pray or go to church, do it because they are afraid and not because they love God. There is no true understanding of why they believe in God. Such end up living carnal lives, go to church only to appease their fears inside.

Non-believers make peace with evil spirits they encounter because they do not know what they are dealing with. There are enough true stories of those who create space in their courtyard (trees, pots, etc.) or inside their homes for evil spirits to reside.

When we do not deal with the problems of life because of fear, we enslave ourselves and get burdened greatly. It affects our overall functioning in the long run. We end up getting depressed, increasingly anxious and disappointed with ourselves.

What can we do to overcome troubles?

God tells us to test every spirit, whether they are of God or not.

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1)

We are daily dealing with people at home, work, neighbourhood and wherever we go. The devil uses non-believers and distracts believers to behave erratically often. How we stay on the rock, Jesus, will enable us to navigate the problem effectively.

When evil spirits attack directly or through a person, we use the authority God has given us to rebuke them in Jesus name.

And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. (Acts 16:18)

What happens when people behave unseemly? We need to use wisdom and lean on God’s leading through the Holy Spirit. Trusting in the Lord, we must dare to speak the truth in love.

Whatever trouble invades us, big or small, requires us to pray and wait on God as He directs our steps daily.

Draw near to God. People are troubled, and need help. Give your life to Jesus to serve Him daily. To be available for His glory. Jesus is coming soon, Praise God and Amen!

VIDEO Missouri State Representative Wins Bi-Partisan Praise for Reminding Us of the Real Battle

By Jim Hoft April 26, 2021

Once upon a time in America, the United States Congress produced moving, meaningful eloquence that changed the tide of history. Daniel Webster, Henry Clay, and Abraham Lincoln are just a few of many whose words lifted the debate above the issue to address the cause.

The quality of lifting our focus above the debate to the true issues that matter is called “statesmanship.” Statesmanship does not have to be eloquent or brilliant. It has be honest and human. Statesmanship overcomes partisan wrangling and emotional pettiness by reminding us of our real purpose on earth.

In short, the US Congress has lost its sense of purpose, history, and proportion.

Sadly, in the last 50 years or so, Congress has become the last place to look for statesmanship. The United States Congress has become the trading pit of America’s basest interests. Congress is where the traders exchange deals to the satisfaction of shadowy stakeholders.

But in the state legislatures, true statesmanship still rises above the crowd to remind us of higher purposes and greater goals.

Last week, a second-term Missouri Republican state representative rose above the crowd and lifted the debate above petty emotion. She earned praise from every faction of Missouri’s fractious legislature for a short, impromptu speech delivered as the body debated restrictions on 1619 education.

The 1619 project is a controversial and emotionally charged doctrine dreamed up by editors at the New York Times. The 1619 project intends to reframe American history as a story of exploitation and cruelty, of wealth for a few extracted from the involuntary suffering of many others.

Such a philosophy is bound to evoke high emotions from many groups. For those who believe they were the exploited masses, the 1619 project supplies ammunition and justification. At the same time, those accused of benefiting from slavery and exploitation are bound to feel defensive and wronged. The very existence of a project to rewrite history, then, seems designed to drive wedges of hatred, jealousy, resentment, and defensiveness between multiple factions of our society.

And it worked.

The Missouri House experienced one of its angriest sessions last week as the body debated whether to restrict the teaching of the 1619 project in Missouri’s public schools. The debate became wildly partisan and racially divisive. Legislators who were friendly turned upon each other.

Dottie Bailey, a second-term state representative from a district that spans St. Louis and Franklin Counties, left the floor to pray. She returned before she got a clear answer from God. But she returned with the righteous courage to let the Holy Spirit speak through her.

What she said silenced the rancor and earned personal praise and thanks, not only from her fellow Republicans, but from the Democrats and African-Americans in the legislature. This despite the fact that Dottie didn’t really talk about race at all. She talked about the deadly sin of division. Without using the words, she evoked Lincoln’s “a house divided” speech. Without quoting Churchill, she evoked his Iron Curtain warning. Without conjuring William F. Buckley, she reminded us that the battle we face is Good vs. Evil on a different plane.

Here is the video from the House floor.

This floor speech could go down as a turning point in the battle of the people vs. the elites. Dottie managed to unite a divided state legislature in its fight to represent the people against powerful and shadowy interests.

Share this with your family and friends. America might have a future after all. If we could just find more Dottie Baileys.
