Question to ChristianAdvice;
Dear brother or sister,
I am from India. I am 33 years old man. I am married last year April and my wife is pregnant now.
She is actually due in a few days.
But the problem is that we had a lot of fights which never kind of resolved. We are living separately for the past 6 months.
I have been contemplating divorce.
I don’t know what she wants but I feel I can’t stay with her anymore.
The other issue now is that I started talking to one of uncle’s daughter and came to know that she loves me and wanted to wait for me. She decided that she would not get married if she can’t get married to me. I met her recently and unfortunately we had been intimate physically.
Now I am pretty much in a big mess. And I don’t know what to do.
I am sorry I don’t know if I can ask things like this.
But please help me if you can. I didn’t tell this to anyone till now.
If you have to publish thus, please change my name and personal information.
Absolutely not. If we did, we could simply say a prayer, bind the Devil and he would never come back. Better still we could call on Jesus to do away with the Devil altogether. But we know that won’t happen. What we do have is absolute authority over sin in the sense that we can overcome it and enter heaven. But we cannot do away with sin. We do not have absolute power over anything in fact – only God has that power. Besides, the Bible makes it absolutely clear that Satan, having decided not to serve God, now has another purpose to serve; to chasten the disobedient, to punish and blind the wicked and to purify the obedient. But He will not do away with the Devil as that is the Devil’s whole complaint in the first place – that God forces His will on others and does not offer us true freedom.
So why pray? Answer: because if all we have to do is speak words to unleash all kinds of blessings on untold numbers of what would otherwise be bad people and situations, and bind up all kinds of evil – then why not? Not to pray would and is a sin in itself!
It’s a scary disease – and something that I have not yet had to face or cope with (yet I am told we all actually have cancer cells in us – it’s just a case of wether the body is removing these damaged cells effectively or not) but we know the world, and all creation including our genes and bodies are fallen, and accordingly, bad things come upon those that love god and those that don’t – and we we read this in the Bible.
However – God also many times intervenes at various times of His choosing to heal and display His power and glory – and not only that – Jesus ALWAYS healed that came to him when he walked the earth.
But how can I cope as a Christian with this terrible prognosis? I myself am not sure but I know a man and woman that may be able to help you get through cancer. I hope these two videos give you inspiration to put your trust totally in God your creator who knows suffering Himself whilst on earth.
This article attempts to help, advise and inspire Christians and others on how they can deal with the diagnosis of having stage 4 or what may turn out to be terminal cancer through belief and trust in God.
What is Mammon?
Mammon is not, as some translations say ‘money’ itself. It’s meaning is actually something a bit deeper. Mammon is more that money – the Bible is referring to the evil spiritual power that grips and enslaves men through money. It is out attitude to money that God is interested in, and Jesus rightly says; “you cannot serve God and Mammon” – not God or money but God or Mammon! Money is mentioned all throughout the Bible and a HUGE part of the commands are related to the handling of money. Money is not evil, in fact is is neither good nor bad – it’s merely a method of paying for goods and services, but serving money is what mammon is, and serving money is what is wrong here.
wealth regarded as an evil influence or false object of worship and devotion.“others have forsaken Mammon in search of something on a more spiritual plane”
Derek Prince gives the best and most through walk-through on this subject in my opinion – at least that I have heard. I will also hold up my hands and say that I have and still hold back money that is owed to god and I am working on this continually – to be more generous and trusting of my finances – not in order to receive, but to simply do what God is asking of us!
The result will be blessing and not curse financially – but if you are thinking that by giving this is a prescription to get rich – forget it. That will only happen if you gain the favour of God which means giving for the RIGHT reasons – not selfish reasons. The reason being for the good of OTHERS! So please check out both of these videos and teachings on money, the Bible and tithing! God bless you all.
