How to handle emotions


Be quick to forgive, but don’t be quick to take decisions and make conclusions when dealing with issues of contention, bitterness, hurt, anger, hate e.t.c Don’t be quick to make decisions and conclusions when under negative emotions, come out of negative emotion before you take any decision because your decisions and conclusion will be clouded and wrongly influenced when acting under such negative moods. Just as we are advise to avoid taking actions when angry so are we advised to avoid taking actions when under a heightened or dull emotional state, take decisions when normalcy has returned and you are at your default state.
Be also quick to forget, forgive like a child, in forgetting the hurts, you refuse to make reference to the hurt in your mind (reasoning) and in your statements, you refuse to allow that hurt though it had been forgiven to be as a guide in making preceding decisions as regards that hurt. Because of the previous hurt which had been forgiven and forgotten, we develop resilience and enough sense and maturity to deal with and handle similar or even greater magnitude of hurt.
Quickness in forgiving and forgetting reduces the impact of the hurt and improves your emotional rigidity and places us in the highest position which is of love, and love is greater than knowledge. In forgetting, it is not that the event is lost in the faculty of the memory, but a conscious decision is taking not to make reference to it when making decisions: we refuse to be influenced by that hurt, if the hurt was intentionally inflicted, the ones who did so would come in contact with your superior energy of love. This is not easy as it seems, because our natural tendencies are just opposite to this, but for those who are born again, they have the nature of God; which is the nature of Love for God is Love. And this love is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who is in you. In finding difficulty to forgive and forget, first we ask for the help of the Holy Spirit, you try to recall and meditate/ponder on what the word of God says about love and forgiveness, as ponder on it; begin also to confess it; because power is released from your spirit; your inner man and it finds expression in your life because your spirit becomes dominant over your flesh that is responsible for those feelings and wrong tendencies.

The word of God is able to heal any pain because it is the anointing. It is necessary that you are quick to forgive and also to forget, because the faster your are in doing this, the better for you, the quicker and easier it is for the pain and hurt to find relief, every hurt has an initial magnitude of impact, but the degree of the impact is dependent on how quick you are to forgive and forget it, if you don’t do this, you will be drawn to meditate on this pain, and by virtue of this act of meditation; the negative virtues and impact of that pain will be enhanced, magnified and multiplied which is seen on most of the emotional people whereas meditating on God’s word of love releases the healing and enabling virtues of the word of God.

The Communication of your Faith


That the communication of thy faith might become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing in you in Christ Jesus. Philemon 1:6

You acknowledge the good things that God has deposited in your spirit, and one way of acknowledging those things is by thanksgiving unto God concerning those virtues, righteous qualities that are inherent in your spirit because the Spirit of God has put them there.
Even though you don’t see them manifest in your life; by faith giving glory to God, concerning those things you have known by the revelation of God’s word; you make Confessions and you will see that that grace in your spirit will find dominance and expression through you.
Making confession like “for the love of God is shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Spirit” even when you are angry and you are full of hate and malice, you will find that latter that feeling would disappear.
Meditating and confessing God’s word is the access to walking in the Spirit where the fruit of the Spirit is made manifest. This confession is part of the communication of your faith

Heaven is so Real



Heaven

 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 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. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 
John 14:1-4 (KJV)

 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. 22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. 24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. 27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. 
Rev 21:10-27 (KJV)

Is your name there? What a joy and privilege that the love of God has given us, don’t miss that place.

Too Late!

In heaven, it is too late to go to hell and in hell it will be to late to go to heaven.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: Heb 9:27 (KJV)
 There is no repentance in the grave.
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reap what he sows. Gal. 6:7
Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who is the Son of God, having abandoned all he became flesh and blood, suffered much and was killed as a criminal. Despite the living proves of the effects in the name of the resurrected Christ in the miracles, signs and wonders evident everywhere which is undeniable, you keep shunning the word of God and persistently resist the prompting of Jesus at the door of your heart. Every time you are alive is to determine the position of your existence after death. No one can be accused by you for your action because you have a choice and a will. Each time that goes is a precious opportunity, who knows whereas, this is your last opportunity.
Many will regret for the eternity of their existence the choice they had made on this issue; rejecting salvation.
… “Today, if you hear his voice,
Do not harden your hearts
As you did in the rebellion.” Heb.3:15
You might not know the essence of salvation till you cannot get it again. No level of personal integrity or goodness can make you worthy of salvation. Only believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as you say this prayer from your heart.

Love


For God so love the world that He gave His One and Only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not out of His love perish but shall have eternal life. Jn. 3:16
In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:9-10 (KJV)

The bible in John 4:16b said “God is love” Have you responded to love? Have you responded to God? By judgment, you are already condemned, but out of His love He let go the Best Person He had; Jesus Christ. Can you estimate the reality of Divinity being encapsulated in a zygote in Mary’s womb? Can you estimate the creation killing its Creator? Can you fathom the Son of the Living God and the Master of the universe to die in the most humiliating and worst form available at the time He came? God crying, spat on, ridiculed by what was formed out of dust of the earth (men). All this was because He love you so much. Can anyone you know do such a thing for you considering the essence of the Son of God?
Respond to the love of God in Christ, God gave his life for your life, you deserve nothing less than death. Give him your life. REMEMBER, God said “My Spirit will not contend with man forever,…” Gen. 6:3
As has just been said:
“Today, if you hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts
As you did in the rebellion.”  Heb. 3:15

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Rev 3:20 (KJV)

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. Romans 5:5 (KJV)
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:16-18 (KJV)
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. 16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. 17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death. 1 John 5:15-17 (KJV)
Perfection is made possible in love. In the heart of a believer, two kinds of love try to fill the heart, The love of God and the love of the world. An acid test for the intensity of the love of God in our hearts is in the face of the word of judgment and sin. How do you react to judgment (of God) against sin? Is it in fear of being worthy of judgment or faith in the salvation of Christ?
Every unholy fear (fear of sin, Satan, sickness, death e.t.c ) is an indication of imperfection. To know God and to be perfect is to know love and be perfect through love. The love of Christ will keep you from the love of the world and the love of the world might keep you from the love of Christ.
