Four Realities of the Spirit World
Understanding the reality of the Spirit world will help us stand firm against the destructive influences on our lives. The truth of the spirit world helps us keep in perspective our purpose and faith.
County Jail Study on Psalms 103
King David wrote this Psalm later in his life and we know this because he wrote this Psalm from a deep understanding of God’s grace and mercy. He understood all the benefits of being in a right relationship with God and he was thankful. What is more amazing is the fact that we have a greater understanding of Psalms 103 and it has more meaning to us because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross for us.
How do we Know our Purpose?
Have you figured out the purpose for your existence? I wondered what my purpose was for many years, but then I saw purpose in every day in how I treated other people. Purpose is to aim, intend, or resolve to do something. Did you ever think that our purpose is to resolve to show love, be kind, be patient and gentle with annoyances, spread joy, ease a burden for someone, live in peace with others, be faithful to our family and employers, be trustworthy and not lie, and lastly to be self-controlled and not indulge our unhealthy feelings or desires. The following verses are well known to many concerning God’s purposes.
EVIL—What is it and what is the remedy?
Why do people murder, hurt children, and cause destruction? Some say they have a mental illness. I believe they have a depraved soul that is controlled by evil. So, what is evil?
How can we be a blessing to someone or be a curse to someone. Do our words encourage or discourage? Do you want to be blessed by God or be cursed by God? Being blessed is being encouraged and made joyful with good things.
It is because of the life of Jesus Christ in us that we can have spiritual authority to fight against the demonic Spirit World. Next, are four reasons why we have spiritual authority through Jesus Christ.
I hope the following summaries will help you see that God’s purposes are different for each person. Note how hardships prepared each person for their purpose. We only need to obey, be faithful, and trust Him even when we don’t see the whole picture or results.
People are like an iceberg, there is so much more under the surface than what you see. I knew I was forgiven and saved, but I struggled with wrong thinking for most of my life. I never had victory over my thoughts and emotions until I learned how to renew my mind and take my thoughts captive and heal my painful memories.
The mind determines what you think, perceive, feel, and believe, which then influences your decisions and behaviors. So, when you renew your mind you are transforming your life.
