I generally do agree to personally pray for others rightfully
on condition that I can also share with them God's truth so they can also stop
sinning, not repeat their faults that have led up to the cause of their
personal problems. That is why I also do often warn people of real
negative consequences if they truly do not get right with God.. no matter how
old they are or how long they have been a Christian too. A general first
rule of counselling effectively others is that one cannot help a person if
they sincerely do not want to be helped, or admit they do need help still. For
many people they still do not know the common solution of God's to their
common problems, sins, the sins even of laziness, fantasizing, even having
unrealistic expectations, or following after lusts, and they do
not know God's solutions to their hurts, needs and really
why? Most people still really do not pay attention to what the Word of God
says about loving Him God, following after God but also what the Word of
God says about work.
(1 Cor 10:13 KJV) There hath no temptation
taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not
suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation
also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth,
that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the
flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit
reap life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in
due season we shall reap, if we faint not.10 As we have therefore
opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the
household of faith.
(Rev 2:4 KJV) Nevertheless I have somewhat
against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember
therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or
else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his
place, except thou repent.
NOTE THIS EARTHLY REALITY, that
applies to all of us, IF WE LEAVE OUR FIRST LOVE ( CHRIST) THE CANDLESTICK
WILL BE REMOVED.. IT WILL NO LONGER BE USED TO SHINE GOD'S GLORY TO ALL,
ONE'S LIFE WILL, WILL BECOME DARKNESS INSTEAD TOO.
I have also
said that prayer is not enough, even for healing, forgiveness, the
real personal confession, repentance of sins is needed as well. We
all have done many wrong things.

treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously

a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets. 31 And, lo, it was all
grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the
stone wall thereof was broken down. 32 Then I saw, and considered it
well: I looked upon it, and received instruction. 33 Yet a little sleep,
a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 34 So shall
thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed

(2 Th 3:10 KJV) For
even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work,

and eat their own bread.

Laziness and personally unrealistic expecations in life are
also two important issues that cause a lot of of even once Christian persons
to next have real major PERSONAL problems in life, even to be rightfully
rejected by others as well.. husbands, wives, single persons too.

of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
9 Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old,
having been the wife of one man,10 Well reported of for good
works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she
have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have
diligently followed every good work.11 But the younger widows refuse:
for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;
12 Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.
13 And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to
house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things
which they ought not. 14 I will therefore that the younger women marry,
bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak
reproachfully. 15 For some are already turned aside after
The Persons who do not continually work have turned after
Satan, and the issue is not earning our salvation by doing Good works, but
rather even losing our salvation by following after Satan, being idle, lazy,
and doing bad works..
Seriously look at how many verses in the New
Testament alone dealing with the need to work, to personally do good
One of today's big tragedy is that many young ladies and
young men are wrongfully spoiled, I.e. unable to work, they too aren't
prepared to do house work, to do real physical work at home or elsewhere. They
are really not prepared for working in real life.
(1 Ki 14:22
KJV) And Judah did evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked him
to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their
fathers had done.

in the sight of the LORD, as his fathers had done: he departed not from the
sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.
KJV) And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and
stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their

righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away
from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the
iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to
all that are about us.
It is also an extreme, wrong value that a
teenage girl or boy year old should have a boy friend or a girl friend
before completing their educations, for they do rather FIRST need to have a
priority of getting a real education so that they can be employable next
Instead of listening to the the mostly bad
advice of others we do need valid help to be real godly persons and also
following after God's will which includes working, working for God too, that
help can be found in God's Word.
(James 3:14 KJV) But if ye have

We all do need to firstly be now what God had made us to
be, and not what we and others expect us to be, and not be
negatively influenced by the media, the world, the flesh the devil here too.

himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto
himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm
constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain
good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

(Prov 31:9 KJV) Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and
plead the cause of the poor and needy.
(Prov 31:10 KJV) Who can
find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11 The
heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need
of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her
household, and a portion to her maidens. 16 She considereth a field, and
buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She
girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. 18 She
perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her
hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household:
for all her household are clothed with scarlet. 22 She maketh herself
coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. 23 Her husband
is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. 24
She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the
merchant. 25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice
in time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue
is the law of kindness. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her
household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise
up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. 29 Many
daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. 30 Favour
is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall
be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works
praise her in the gates.
I once had a vision during my sleep
about a young teenager that I had once known and she troubled me in my
spirit for many years as I would think about her, and I could not understand
why? untill nextGod spoke to me and said her that her unacceptable sin was the
sin of laziness. He God called it an unacceptable sin. What do you call
We need to will and to also desire that God will change us so
God now will not lets us personally experience the real, more
negative consequence of our sins, of our own turning away from Him. One cannot
personally pray for personally healing OR MOST ANYTHING ELSE and have
unrepented sins still in one's life.
Now if you also are looking in a
garbage can for love still it is cause you have likely become an extreme, an
"aholic", and you are clearly following after the
wrong personal values in life.
Looking for worldly pleasure,
false loves, fulfillment of their lusts too many persons now still have
wandered away from God..
Even most Christians tend to go to extremes
and do STILL have many wrong values. I thus rightfully too have been
encouraging all believers first to daily read the Bible and pray daily
for themselves and others, praise God in all things too, for that is how
God starts to change us for the better, but still only if we let him,
when we DO try to follow after him. Thus I tend to first look into
this as well if in fact each and every believers are firstly daily
in the Bible, daily praying for themselves and others but I also
then next do look at their their actual, practising value system to see even
if it is really now appropriate, a GODLY ONE.
Our life, our love is in
God, we love Him because he first love us. We need to continue to love
and to follow after him and first always.
I often have to counsel
women and men, pastors too, of remembering daily the importance that Christ is
our first love, our first spouse, our good husband, and no one, NOTHING
can take his place, certainly no man or women as well . Even "Romance" is a
false spirit of sexual lusts that even RATHER NEXT brings unhappiness
and not REAL OR LASTING joy. CHRIST IS OUR LOVE, OUR JOY.
KJV) I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also
instruct me in the night seasons.
(Psa 16:8 KJV) I have set the
LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest
in hope.10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer
thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt show me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for
Now when we do wrong and leave God out, we cannot even
love God or ourselves or others too. And the depression keeps just getting
worse, it seems, because even a nice car, a nice house, nice furniture, the
handsome husband, the good looking wife, they cannot , and will not make
anyone happy due to to the fact that even all of these things still being
a wrong personal desire, a wrong expecations of ours, and we all
will be, will be next disappointed, depressed when we pursue after
them primarily and not God.
(Mat 6:33 KJV) But seek ye first the
kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added
unto you.34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall
take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil
Too many persons read the newspaper and the TV too
much and are wrongfully influenced by it. the firstly really do need to get
back into the Bible.. Today the mostly ungodly News,
entertainment, advertising, media often lie to you and say that you can almost
do anything, that all things are right to do, you can do what you
want, what you desire... but it is not in God's eyes. I rarely
regularly watch the news anymore since I have become a
Christian. Instead of listening to what the mostly ungodly others say we
can do we rather need help to be real, to be now what God
had made us to be, we need to read and follow after the Bible, which is God's
words for us, and not follow rather what we and others wrongfully expect
us to be.
(Psa 119:105 KJV) Thy word is a lamp unto my
feet, and a light unto my path.
The media is mostly under the devil's
control and it wants to turn you eyes off of God, Christ and to serve the
flesh, the rotten flesh that really makes you so unhappy too.
KJV) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,23 And
changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to
corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things. 24
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own
hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed
the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than
the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
personal depression is made worse by all of this unrealistic
lustful expectations for oneself and wrongfully comparing oneself
with others instead of loving God only and following fully only after
him. The secular EMPHASIS ON outward beauty and one being handsome
is still not God's love, for all that is now is mostly carnal, idol
worship, a secular materialistic and a wrong values system. All these
wprdly valies are not the rightful goals for any believers rather
Jesus alone is.
Jesus also looks at the heart and sees only our
God ward beauty not the false beauty in outward appearances. Next if one
can't love oneself then how can they fulfill the second greatest
commandment that tells us to love God and to love our neighbours as we love
(John 4:16 KJV) Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy
husband, and come hither.17 The woman answered and said, I have no husband.
Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:18 For thou hast
had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that
saidst thou truly.
Here was a clear example of a woman who had five
husbands and SHE ALSO did not find true happiness till she found Jesus
We all also need to understand that sex is not love, and
it is not what can make us at all truly happy, but the world today tries
to teaches sex to minors and wrongfully encourages it. It is not
just our lusts that we have, had to renounce it is ALSO our carnal,
physical body the flesh, that contains the lusts..
I too still do have
to often step out of the flesh into the Spirit of God. Many people do not
understand how to do this, or the difference between walking in the flesh and
walking in the spirit of God. Walk in the spirit and you will not fill the
lusts of the flesh.
In further reality and I studied this in more
detail most high school dating patterns next are reflective of their
subsequent marriages and related divorce. If one is depressed now as a
teen one will be next even more depressed in marriage because even their
spouse selection method is not under God's control nor the false expectation
of what they do want next the spouse to be, even to be a false
replacement for God and God will never accept this false substitute nor will
he bless it.
Let me be clear AGAIN sex is not the answer to our needs
in life! JESUS IS!
(Col 1:12 KJV) Giving thanks unto the
Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the
saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness,
and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we
have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who
is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth,
visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or
principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the
firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to
reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in
earth, or things in heaven. 21 And you, that were sometime alienated and
enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In
the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and
unreproveable in his sight: 23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and
settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have
heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof
I Paul am made a minister; 24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you,
and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for
his body's sake, which is the church:
(Eph 2:10 KJV) For we are
his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath
before ordained that we should walk in
Our personal self worth,
self esteem, self image can be compared to a tire ( a symbol of man)
with air ( the air a symbol of the Holy Spirit ) in it that is on a bus (here
used as a symbol of God's kingdom on earth). The persons who have the
normal tire pressures,are clearly those persons who are
doing a good work. The persons who have low tire pressures
are clearly those persons who are rather doing bad works, and not rather
the good works that God wants us to do. And the persons who do bad
the bad works, they also feel bad about themselves, like when the air in
a tire is lowered, they thus have a low self esteem, a low self worth, a low
self image. To feel good, better about themselves they instead
must do good works as the Holy Spirit leads them. The God inspired good
works inflates their self esteem, their tire to the proper
pressure.. In their arrogance some persons they even do not want
to admit that if they continue running on low air pressure, lack of good
works, that God will, will replace them, and he often next does if they
do not repent. One can abuse the tire by driving on it with
very low air pressure, and the same tire will tear, be destroyed eventually,
is no longer of any use and is replaced. The same thing applies
to the persons who unrepentantly continue to do mostly bad
works they are no longer useful to God, are disposable.
I thus do
rightfully warn them of this often that they too do have a continual
free will, their own personal choice as to how they will turn out, and how
even thus God will use them.

is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also
(Mal 2:1 KJV) And now, O ye priests, this commandment is
for you. 2 If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to
give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse
upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already,
because ye do not lay it to heart. 3 Behold, I will corrupt your seed,
and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one
shall take you away with it. 4 And ye shall know that I have sent this
commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of
(Mal 2:6 KJV) The law of truth was in his mouth, and
iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and
did turn many away from iniquity. 7 For the priest's lips should keep
knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger
of the LORD of hosts. 8 But ye are departed out of the way; ye have
caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi,
saith the LORD of hosts. 8 Therefore have I also made you contemptible
and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but
have been partial in the law.
(Isa 65:12 KJV) Therefore will I

sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl
for vexation of spirit.
(Isa 65:15 KJV) And ye shall leave your
name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call
his servants by another name:16 That he who blesseth himself in the earth

shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten,
and because they are hid from mine eyes.
(1 John 2:15 KJV) Love
not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the
world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world,

of the Father, but is of the world.17 And the world passeth away, and the lust
thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

and sex is not the answer to the world's inadequacies, Jesus alone is. Sadly I
do know of many persons who have rejected the the truth of the word of
God because they wanted rather and the false spirit of romanticism, the
very false world of false dreams and dreaming. I thus would appreciate
that you would pray for these persons and others like them that they would
come back to God alone who is the answer to all of our needs, and not even our

(1 Cor 7:29
KJV) But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that
both they that have wives be as though they had none;30 And they that weep, as
though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and
they that buy, as though they possessed not; 31 And they that use this world,
as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away. 32 But I
would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things
that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: 33 But he
that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please

shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life
shall preserve it.
(Heb 12:15 KJV) Looking diligently lest any
man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble
you, and thereby many be defiled;16 Lest there be any fornicator, or
profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his
birthright.17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have
inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance,
though he sought it carefully with tears.

(Gal 5:15 KJV) But if ye bite and devour one another, take
heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16 This I say then, Walk in
the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the
flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these
are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye
would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery,
fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft,
hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell
you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such
things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the
Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they
that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

(1 John 3:1 KJV) Behold, what manner
of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of
God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. (2 Pet 1:3
KJV) According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that
pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called
