It would appear the world, including most people of the bible, have more fear of the dead or ghosts than of God. They have preset numbers or agencies on whom to call in times of trouble. Whether car breakdown, medical or other. In the USA there is 911, in the UK 999. I recall a song that accompanied a film. It’s lyrics are:
If there's something strange, In your neighbourhood, Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters. If there's something weird And it don't look good, Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters.
From creation mans’ spiritual enemy has put strange things in our neighbourhood. I refer to the garden of Eden and the creature depicted as a talking snake. Had Adam and Eve called upon who they should have, they and us could have avoided a whole world of problems. Instead she tried to find the answer from within her own logic. The bible says Gen 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
They should have known this something weird didn’t look good. It tried to entice them to disobey their creator. A creator that had given them a beautiful garden, food and their needs. We have the same choices today. Later God, our creator made it clear to our more recent ancestors. He again did good things for them and gave them a directive to remember His goodness and redemption in times of temptation, weird or strange things. He calls things “strange” when they are not of Him or from within His directives.
Num 15:37 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Num 15:38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue: Num 15:39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: Num 15:40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God. Num 15:41 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God.
That was not the only place we are told not to use our own eyes or understanding. Pro 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Pro 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.Pro 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.Pro 30:12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
Many bible believing generations follow teachings of denominations and think they are doing right in God’s eyes, yet may not be washed from their disobedience. Those who obey, can confidently say, the answer in the song “I ain't afraid of no ghost”.
If you're seeing things, Running through your head, Who can you call? Ghostbusters. An invisible man, Sleeping in your bed, Oh, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters.
The bible says Jas 1:14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.God’s commandments are clear. Do not take nor covet anything that is not yours. That is sin. Whether the thought comes from within your own head or others suggestions.
Pro 1:10 My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
Ofcourse the biggest sin is going after or following another God than Yahweh. Numerous times His scriptures list that as the number one sin.
Deu 13:6 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Deu 13:7 Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Deu 13:8 Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: Deu 13:9 But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
That still remains the number one sin, not adultery as is taught or translated in bibles. Mat 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: Many think fornication is to do with outside marriage relations and bibles commonly replace “fornication” with sexual immorality. As if Yahshua would be saying a man can put away his wife for such; but not for having a false god! Is that not what brought Solomon and Ahab down. Having false god worshipping wives? Personally, I think that is one of the deceiver’s teachings.
1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;2Co 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2Co 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness.
So whether that invisible man is in your bed, head or graveyard, the bible says, Ecc 9:2 All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath. Ecc 9:3 This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all: yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.
Ecc 9:4 For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. Ecc 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Ecc 9:6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
Yahsha made it clear in His parable about Lazarus and the rich man. The dead do not return. Yahshua was the first to return. We are to only fear those who can take our lives. Spirits cannot hurt us; but the thoughts the enemy put in our heads may lead us to hurt ourselves; even to suicide. There is no need to sleep with the light on. You will only hurt your bank balance. So what do you tell yourself when you see these imaginations “I ain't afraid of no ghost”.
If you've had a dose, of a Freaky ghost, seen something strange and it don’t look good, If you're all alone, Pick up the phone And call Ghostbusters. The ways of God frees you from anything the enemy can do. God and His angles are the ultimate ghost busters.
I am going to give you some 0800 direct dial numbers to them.
When In sorrow: John 14.
Joh 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. Joh 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. Joh 14:4 And where I go ye know, and the way ye know. I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me… he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; Joh 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Joh 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. Joh 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Joh 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Joh 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, Joh 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Joh 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Joh 14:27 … Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
I hope you see from this extract, that the Father and son are one as their commandments are the same. The Holy Spirit, comforter that they send operates in this physical world in their physical absence. We are told to live in the spirit and be one with them, be Christ like etc. We are their physical representatives to each other. When Cain asked God if he was his brother’s keeper. The answer for us should be yes we are. When scriptures says we are gods. I want you to read it as not gods as in plural but “God apostrophe S”. We are God’s helpers. It is through us that He administers comfort to others. In a sense, we are His ears, eyes and hands. We should observeour brethren in need either by sight, hearing and give that helping hand, words, hug of comfort, a time of companionship and so on to lift each other up. In the same way God sent His son or came in human form to show us how to live His way, He should also be working through us to go to others and show them how to be and live according to His ways and world. The kingdom of God is truly inus and we can bring that kingdom to others, our brethren.
So as we read through these other topics we should not merely see them as God doing things for us and others in some distant miraculous way that does not involve our participation; but doing it through us as a valuable link between man and God. Let us not always focus on our troubles, needs and agendas; but others too. What part do we as an individual play. How can we bring these scriptures to life in someone else’s life. As the angel of God said to Joshua, he is the captain of our lives and director of our paths. He comes to show us the way to go. The way to live in our families, congregation and other believers whether from other denominations or not. We can be one family in this pagan world. There is strength in numbers and the enemy will always be attacking us one by one; but by supporting each other we can overcome.
2Co 1:3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 2Co 1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
2Co 1:5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
2Co 1:6 And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. 2Co 1:7 And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.
When You are let down by otherson whom you called for help Call Psalm 27.
Psa 27:1 Yahweh is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Psa 27:2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Psa 27:3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
Psa 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. Psa 27:6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD. Psa 27:8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Psa 27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up. Psa 27:13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Psa 27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
When have sinned Psalm 51
Simply acknowledge and sincerely repent.
Psa 51:1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Psa 51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. Psa 51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Psa 51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
Psa 51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Psa 51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Psa 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Psa 51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Psa 51:16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
Psa 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
When you worry over possessions Mat 6:19-34
Remember and be single eyed on your priority. Materialism, fame and esteem in others eyes is one of the biggest lures of the enemy.
Mat 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: Mat 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Mat 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Mat 6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Mat 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Mar 10:23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! Mar 10:24 … how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! Mar 10:25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. Mar 10:26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved? Mar 10:27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
Mar 10:28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
Mar 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, Mar 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
REMEMBER JOB, WHO GAVE UP ALL OR AT LEAST DID NOT COMPLAIN OR TURN FROM GOD WHEN ALL WAS TAKEN AWAY. AS THIS SCRIPTURE SAYS, HE RECEIVED MORE CHILDREN, LAND AND ASSETS.
Mar 10:43 But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: Mar 10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
Isa 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Isa 55:2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
Isa 55:6 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
Isa 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Isa 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
When you are low on funds for your needs, Psalm 37
Psa 37:1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. Psa 37:2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
Psa 37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Psa 37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Psa 37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Psa 37:6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
Psa 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Psa 37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. Psa 37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. Psa 37:16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked. Psa 37:21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth. Psa 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Psa 37:24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. Psa 37:25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. Psa 37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. Psa 37:31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. Psa 37:38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off. Psa 37:39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble. Psa 37:40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.
When in Danger, Psalm 91
Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psa 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Psa 91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; Psa 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
Psa 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
Remember Daniel and the three other Hebrews.
When you want courage, Joshua 1.
Jos 1:3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. Jos 1:5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Jos 1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.Jos 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Jos 1:9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
When God seems far away, Psalm 139
Psa 139:1 O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me. Psa 139:2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. Psa 139:3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways. Psa 139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. Psa 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Psa 139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! Psa 139:18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
We cannot hide from God, nor does He hide from us. He is always easy to find and has a hand outstretched to those who seek Him with all their heart, soul and might. Jonah learnt this when trying to flee.
When your faith needs a boost, Hebrews 11.
Faith in God’s promises and ability and your obedience to His ways, makes the impossible possible.
Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Heb 11:11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised. Heb 11:12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable. Heb 11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, Heb 11:24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; Heb 11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Heb 11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days. Heb 11:32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:
Heb 11:33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, Heb 11:34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Heb 11:39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: Heb 11:40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
When you need some assurance, Rom 8:1-30
Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Rom 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Rom 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God,
Rom 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Rom 8:24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Friction with others, Romans 12.
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Rom 12:9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
Rom 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Rom 12:15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Rom 12:16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Rom 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Secret to a happy mind, Colossians 3:12-17
It is all about your perspective. Do you hold onto things, forgive even if not forget? Have you renewed your mind. Water flows, carries away junk, makes room for and brings new items. Ice does not. A wrong mindset makes your blood colder as ice, preventing stress and bad things to move away as junk.
Col 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Col 3:13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
Col 3:14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
Col 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Col 3:18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Col 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them. Col 3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. Col 3:25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
Sometimes submission brings peace, a better and longevity of life.
2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2Co 5:18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 2Co 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
When you are feeling down, Romans 8:31-39
Rom 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Rom 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Rom 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Rom 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Rom 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
When you want peace and rest, Mat 11:25-30
Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
When the world seems bigger than you.
Lord Psa 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. Psa 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
When you seem bigger than the world, Psalm 19
Psa 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. Psa 19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. Psa 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. Psa 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Psa 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Psa 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
Psa 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
We started off the study with the first error of mankind, committed by Eve and Adam. That of using her own understanding and sight. Psalm 19 reiterates the message of God since that time. The message told by all His messengers. His prophets or Law and Prophets and Yahshua said. Let us heed to the lesson and the laws of Yahweh God. If you have faith to belief what we have read, you should believe keeping them brings blessings and disobedience curse, ultimate sadness and death.
One of the last lines of the song is “Don't get caught alone no no. When it comes through your door, Unless you just want some more, I think you better call, Ghostbusters”.
Of all the invisible problems or ghosts the enemy would send to you, Yahweh has given you the ability to be a ghost buster Jas 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. and if any ever get too big or many for you, call on God the ultimate ghost buster through prayer.
The song ends with “Let me tell you something. Bustin' makes me feel good”. Well defeating your desires and the devil should make you feel good. Even if not on earth, when you get the reward it would. Like an endurance runner who resist quitting and all the training etc is insignificant when they gain the prize. For mothers, any pain of childbirth is insignificant when they hold that child in their arms. Busting and seeing you bust ghosts also makes God’s angels feel jubilant for you in heaven.
Lastly, never forget to praise God Psalm 145:3-4.
Once upon a time, there lived a King who, despite his luxurious lifestyle, was neither happy nor content. One day, the King came upon a servant who was singing happily while he worked. This fascinated the King; why was he, the Supreme Ruler of the Land, unhappy and gloomy, while a lowly servant had so much joy. The King asked the servant, "Why are you so happy?" The man replied, "Your Majesty, I am nothing but a servant, but my family and I don't need too much - just a roof over our heads and warm food to fill our tummies." The king was not satisfied with that reply. Later in the day, he sought the advice of his most trusted advisor. After hearing the King's woes and the servant's story, the advisor said, "Your Majesty, I believe that the servant has not been made part of The 99 Club." "The 99 Club? And what exactly is that?" the King inquired. The advisor replied, "Your Majesty, to truly know what The 99 Club is, place 99 Gold coins in a bag and leave it at this servant's doorstep." When the servant saw the bag, he took it into his house. When he opened the bag, he let out a great shout of joy... So many gold coins! He began to count them. After several counts, he was at last convinced that there were 99 coins. He wondered, "What could've happened to that last gold coin? Surely, no one would leave 99 coins!" He looked everywhere he could, but that final coin was elusive. Finally, exhausted, he decided that he was going to have to work harder than ever to earn that gold coin and complete his collection. From that day, the servant's life was changed. He was overworked, horribly grumpy, and castigated his family for not helping him make that 100th gold coin. He stopped singing while he worked. Witnessing this drastic transformation, the King was puzzled. When he sought his advisor's help, the advisor said, "Your Majesty, the servant has now officially joined The 99 Club." He continued, "The 99 Club is a name given to those people who have enough to be happy but are never content, because they're always yearning and striving for that extra 1 telling to themselves: "Let me get that one final thing and then I will be happy for life." We can be happy, even with very little in our lives, but the minute we're given something bigger and better, we want even more! We lose our sleep, our happiness, we hurt the people around us; all these as a price for our growing needs and desires. That's what joining The 99 Club is all about.
Shalom. (Continued below).
When you grow bitter and critical 1 Cor 13; Lonely and fearful, Psalm 23; leaving for a journey, Psalm 67;
When you want to be fruitful, John 15.
Joh 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Joh 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Joh 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. Joh 15:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. Joh 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. Joh 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Joh 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. Joh 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you..
