God Hates

( Prov.6)

16 There are six things the LORD hates,
seven that are detestable to him:

17 haughty eyes,
a lying tongue,
hands that shed innocent blood,

18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
feet that are quick to rush into evil,

19 a false witness who pours out lies
and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.


30Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.

31Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.

Psalms 11
5The Lord tests and proves the [unyieldingly] righteous, but His soul abhors the wicked and him who loves violence.

Levitcus 7
18And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination,
and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity.

Deuteronomy 17:1
Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that is an abomination unto the LORD thy God.
Deuteronomy 18
9When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

10There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

11Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.

14For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

Worry, Stress and Fear Conditions

Worry, Stress and Fear Conditions

Recently the Lord God Almighty through His wonderful Holy Spirit alerted me about this very thing in my life. A lack of trust in the Lord was the cause with doubt of what the Lord says feeding it. I was alarmed that I had fallen into this hole of despair where darkness surrounded me and the only light was when I looked up to Jesus my savior and deliverer.
I called out to Him in repentance for losing my God focus and listening to the rantings of lies that cause me to lose sight of His great faithfulness. How could I, a seasoned veteran of the Jesus movement be so careless and allow the spirit of stupid to take over?
Worry is my enemy that slips into my mind and soul to overwhelm me with businesses that are not mine. To pray is to release our cares thus helping others bear their burdens to the Lord. We are not to hang onto them and maul them over and over trying to figure ways and means to get people out of their predicaments. That is God's business.
Stress is a result of worry to the max and blows us up like a balloon. It shows up in our bodies as sickness and pain. It shows off in our minds, our souls as messed up thoughts. It shows in our spirits as a weakening force. Only God can help us to restore.
Fear is the reality of what we have accepted as normal, as human. Fear will cripple, maim, and paralyze and terrorize our bodies, souls and spirits. The torment of fear is unparalleled. Anxiety feeds on fear. Stress absorbs fear like a sponge and fear multiplies and grows more fear.
In a dream the Lord showed me how that because of fear of bats I have been a hindrance to my husband's blessing of others. He has a wonderful ministry of helps that is so needed in our wicked world and my allowing fear to operate in my thoughts and emotions gets in his way and kicks in at the worst times.
Bats have never harmed me or anyone else that I know. They have been very good for our environment in eating mosquitoes and moths and other flying things that can do us bad. Sometimes they have gotten into an area where I am living and startled me . I am sure the fear in them of me was greater than the fear in me of them.
My heart will attest to the damage that fear can do and my muscles that tense up painfully scream at me to smarten up. My adrenal glands have been so overworked by my fight or flight modes that serious overload has caused them to be exhausted.
Jesus teaches the way of peace . He is the very prince of peace.
What is my problem? Forgetting whose child I am and not giving everything up to God including any fear or dread that are unfounded as being of the Lord, my creator.
Worry, stress and fear are not for the child of God. Trust means t-total, r-resting,u-under, s-severe,t-testing. We can do all this through Christ who strengthens us.
