God has designed each of us to be transformed into His image. This is the essence of His original intent for all mankind. 1 Corinthians 6:20 says that we have been bought with a price, and we are to glorify God in our bodies. The Bible also teaches that we are predestined to become conformed to the image of Christ (Rom. 8:29).
Many kinds of addictions!
• Drugs – street or prescription drugs, and Alcohol because alcohol is a drug, The most addictive prescriptive drug is antihistamines. The withdraw can be as serious than you can imagine.
• Inordinate affection – there is a sole tie that is not godly. Females will become co-dependent with each other, situational homosexuality. You find that in prisons. It does not have to be sexuality but it involves ungodly bonding to members of the same sex. The roots are still the same. Being in need for affection from another person instead of God. Soul Ties!
• Homosexuality is a sexual expression of dependence upon another person for significance and value. It is an inordinate affection with each other. It is the need for love instead of God. They don’t believe God loves them. It is also motivated by an inability to resolve emotional difficulties, which leads to addictive relational and sexual patterns.
• Nicotine from cigarettes. The nicotine in cigarettes is incredibly dangerous to your mobile home you live in. Cigarette spiritually to a person. It has nothing to do with nicotine whatsoever. It what hits the lips for nurturing. When a baby kitty is taken away too early, it will continuously tries to knead on you. It wants milk from you. Because it was taken from its mother too soon. It needs love. Nurtering, the need to be loved. Sucking reflex from eating and smoking.
• Addiction to soap operas, etc.
• Food addictions – if you have alcoholic addiction, you can change your addiction to charbohydrates and surger because both of these convert to alcohol in your body to feed your addiction.
Anything that you cannot lay down by an act of your will means you are addicted. Anything that controls you and rules you is your master. The Lord is not your master, the father is not your master. Something in physical creation is your lord. Master of, ruler of, etc.
You try to take away from them and it is like a kid with a piece of candy. When trying to take it away, they go into a temper tantrum. Because there is something from within that controls them.
This kingdom uses many mechanisms. The enemy knows how to control you out of your need.
What is behind addiction? The need to be loved. Takes you into a world of finding love in all the wrong places. And that place can include a chemical. How does the enemy knows how to bind you to this level.
3 classes of addiction in scripture. They are all talked about in Galatians.
1. Galatians 3:1-3 1O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
2This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
3Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
First thing that happens is spiritual bewitchment. You shall love god, neighbor and yourself. Upon this all of the law and prophets hang. Addiction is rooted in the need to be loved. If you were complete the gospel, receive the love for yourself, accepting who you are once and for all, and having the love for others and being complete, you would never need love in all the wrong places. Your enemy knows that if he can get in a place, loved by god, love yourself or others, he can get you to look outside for something that will be a fix.
When you don’t love yourself and you don’t accept who you are, the first thing that happens in your body chemistry is seretonian levels dip. Seretonian is a neurotransmitter that is released out of the nervous system out of the dendrits out of the baselganglia which is part of your brain stem. Your enemy knows through the mind/body connection between the cerebral cortex and hypothalamus that if you start stewing in your juices about god, yourself and others and don’t feel love, that he can make seretonian levels, what he does through the hypothalamus, causes the pineal gland that regulates seretonian levels in the body to trigger the under production of seretonian levels. When you have seretonian level deficiency, you not only don’t feel right in the area in acceptance and love spiritually, you don’t feel that way in your psychy, or in your soul or emotions and now you feel goofy in your phsio. Now you are in trouble.
If you take your peace with God, self and others, then the hypothalamus will recognize your fulfillment will signal your pineal gland to release seretonia values your spirit soul and body will come into balance again and you will feel completed.
Jesus said peace if give unto you but not as the world gives …
When we find addictions we find a person that is separated from god, themselves and separated from others in every single time. If you find somebody that is struggling with any type of addiction, you now or will know in the future, you know their or your battleground. You have been spiritually bewitched from the simplicity of the gospel.
Your enemy knows your biology better than most of your pastors. The enemy knows if he can get you stewing in this stuff, that he can make seretonian levels drop or deficient. There is no way you can get it back up unless you take a drug. Because you are in chemical imbalance. So the sorcerer, your friendly drugstore pharmacist, knows from the study of pharmacoly he can give you a seretonian drug enhancer to make you feel good but now you are addicted to the enhancer. That is a false peace. As long as you take the drug you may feel better about yourself but you still have an unloving and unclean spirit that is part of your nature and even on the drug you still don’t feel satisified but just more tormented.
Yoru enemy also knows that if he can create an altered state of consciousness, he can release various chemicals also. Your enemy knows that since now produced a chemical imbalance in your body, because of an unloving spirit, that he now wants to be your solution. First he causes the problem, you don’t know what is going on. He knows what is going on. He will engineer thoughts that you will take steps to enter into various arenas to go after fulfillment. IN certain cases it could be pornography. The root is not lust. It is the need to be loved. Lust is not the strongman is pornography. Lust fuels doplamines. Doplamines is another neurotransmitter called “feel good”. The pleasure neurotransmitter. In order the person to compensate biologically for the spiritual deficiency, they got to get a rush.
Example: Drug that operates on that principal. Cocain is not chemically addictive. Cocaine, according to the secular world, is psychologically addictive. Cocaine, the person does not lilke themselves, there seretonians are down and desperately need to be loved. Wherever they go is not enough and never satisfied. Somebody introduces them to cocaine. The pharamacutical for cocaine is to release doplamines. Cocaine is releases doplaime, all of it. The first hit of cocaine releases all the doplamine in the body that there is in one big rush. Doplaimine is what is released in a orgazim. In proper relationship is the physical release in that relationship in that level. Someone takes cocaine and they have what is equvilent of a spiritual and emotional relationship. The rush go back into real life and bump into not feeling loved because that didn’t go away. Now there is no chemical rush happening and now drawn to a fulfillment. They find a dealer and get more cocaine they take next hit of cocaine and ready for that fulfillment and come into a rude surprise because they didn’t get a rush at all. They remember what the first one did. Why don’t they get a rush again. Because god puts checks and balances on promiscuity. All the other neurotrasmitters are manufactured by the body fairly quickly. Except doplamine. If doplaimine is released completely from the body, it takes 2 years to come back to full value in the body. If it is never released again. That person goes to one hit to the next hit and never again achieve that release. They remember it. That is why is it called a psychologically addictive drug.
Altered state of consciousness defy what creation is all about! If he created you to smoke, he would have created you that way.
The enemy gives you chemicals to alter state of consciousness into a chemical peace. It is not the peace that Jesus gives because Jesus said this Peace I give to you but not as the world gives to you.
The need to be loved is built in us from creation. The ability to give and receive love is part of our creation. Because of our breakdown from our families and cities, nations that we have not loved our children, husbands, wifes, we have brutally loved each other that the animal kingdom has done much better than we have. WE now have the rage of rejection, bitterness, of not being loved.
Spiritual betwitchment says that god does not love you, you don’t love yourself and that no one loves you either. When you buy that lie because of the sins of others around you, you have been bewitched and you need a fix.
It would be difficult to get away from your nuturing if you don’t feel loved. You can give up on one but there is cross addiction. You will give up on one and your addiction will turn into something else.
What is spiritual bewitchment. You are lisening to a lie that you are not loved or belong on this planet. That you don’t love yourself. You are listening to a lie that others don’t love you. If they don’t love you, it is their loss because the Lord loves you and is your creator and knew you before you were born. You don’t have to carry somebody eles sin because they don’t love you for you to go into addictions for your destruction.
Galatians 5:19 – 19Now the works of the flesh are manifest (you can see it) , which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21Envyings, 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.
A Christian who allow these things to continue without a conscioons or without conviction. Witchcraft is actually legal drug. The other drunkness which is illegal drug.
3rd cause of death in this country, is death from prescription drugs. Sideeffect and adverse reaction. Death from illegal drugs does not make the top 10.
Regards to diet. Did you know weight all depends on how much you like yourself. The more you don’t like yourself the more you have a weight problem because when you don’t like yourself your metabolilsm slows down. The more you like yourself, your rate of metabolism increases (the rate of burn). It does not matter what you eat, you won’t lose it).
Prozak is the first legal, illegal drug. It is an antifedimine. It is the chemical equivalent of exosy. They are identical. It is an upper. If you don’t feel good about yourself, go take your upper.
Side effect – it creates anxiety disorders. Second, loss of libido.
You alone choose your freedom or your bondage.
Addiction, when you come from off those drugs, you won’t die even though the withdraws are horrible but if you stay on the drugs you will die. That Is spiritual bewitchment that’s alie because your body has become the lord.
You know how you get rid of bad habits, you make new ones. Sometimes fasting is a wonderful way to subdue the flesh.
Addictions to hide your pain.
Prov. 31:1 – 1The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.
2What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?
3Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.
4It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:
5Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.
6Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.
7Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.
What is side effects about strong drink. Will not administer justice on the earth.
If you have inherited alcoholism you are in trouble. The person that cannot handle alchol is that they have addictive behavior and are really have allergies. Root of allergies is fear. ! John 4:18 – made not perfect in love.
Allergies a broken heart and a spirit of fear.
The kingdom behind the invisible that produces addictions.
Luke 11:21 when a strongman armed his goods are in peac.e This means some type of individual that is strong and armed and is in control of its house or palace. His good is protected. This is about satan’s control over a human by a kingdom. The palace is a human being. The strongman is the principality the unloving spirit that controlling that human beings life. But answering too this principality of an unloving spirit from 10 to 2,000 other spirits reinforcing its power in their life. We cannot remove the strongman but need to remove all the things that give him power. You cannot remove bitterness until you remove unforgiveness because unforgiveness gives it power, etc.
The power of the strongman cannot be removed is trusting in the fact that the power structure is in tact. God wants it removed. Jesus is teaching a reality of evil spirits in humans.
Jesus didn’t say you needed inner healing, he said abide by the finger of god to cast out devils…..
Inner healing makes no provision for casting out demons in a person’s life. Most inner healing models is co-habitation with the enemy. It is called psychotherapy. You know what psychotherapy is, identify the uncestral darkness of your past, come into agreement with it, look at it, understand it so that you can have a better life with it. That is cohabitation with the enemy. That is classic union psychotherapy. Psychotherapy – is herracy as far as the word of god is in concern. What the Lord sets free is free indeed. Remove it and don’t cohabitate with it but destroy it out of your life.
I want the archetypes and dark shadows gone.
Dark shadows, the term in psychotherapy world, are evil spirits. Carl Young saw an invisible kingdom and even channeled them. He turned it and called it archetype and dark shadows – evil spirits.
When an evil spirit is cast out is wonders through a dry place seeking a place of rest and finding none and comes back to its original house to see if the house is filled or empty. Finding the house cleaned and empty, it comes back bringing 7 more with it much worse with itself. When an evil spirit is cast out, it wonders through a dry place looking for a place of rest. Why, because it can torment. Because it has every urge of its fallen nature. No where to express itself. When it was in the human, it was at peace and the human was in torment. When it is cast out, the human is at peace and the spirit is in torment because it has no place now to fulfill its fallen nature in creation.
When you have a fear of evil then you are saying satan is greater than god and that is a herracy. Satan has never been greater than god and never will be unless you make him bigger.
If you believe evil is greater than good, then you got exactly what you got coming.
Job 3: what I have feared greatly, has come upon him.
When a stronger than he comes upon him, who is he, the strongman that is armed. With addictions you are not in control because you have another lord that is controlling you. You are in the basement in the house like a prisoner while the strongman is eating your food.
21″When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe.
22But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the armor in which the man trusted and divides up the spoils. IN unraveling addiction, we have to dismantle addiction armor that goes that strongman the pweor to rule. That strongman is the unloving and unclean spirit. It is an unloving and unclean spirit that will not allow you to accept God’s love that will not let you be at peace with yourself on this planent in the new birth. And will not let you give or receive love from others. What feeds that, has to be dismantled. It isn’t just a matter of conversion. It is a matter of restructinr our entire spiritual personality by removing the armor that has beome part of our lives spiritual and psychologically.
Addiction, craving, craving drawing to what you are addicted too. Your body is about to pitch a fit and then yoru body has a desire forgetfulness is a characteristic. Many of the drugs destroy your brain cells? Cludy thinking, substitution for of surger base products for actual alcoholic drinks. Refusal to face reality. People that are in denial won’t Face their problems are highly addictive or addiction prone. God wants you to face every issue of your life. Refusal to accept responsibility. Craving for surger. Some of the diseases that hypoglycemia, and hyper. Bear belly, excessive weight. Predisposition to fornication. That is improper sexual relatiaonships before marriage.
23″He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me, scatters.
24″When an evil[h] spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ 25When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. 26Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”
Pornography and sexual addiction they have to have the doplamine rush. 90% are male and 10% are female.
Pornography 100% in masturbation is adultry (power of the man’s body belongs to the wife or visa versa if you give to another thing it is sexual adultery because something else has power over your body) or fornification. In the masturbation there is an orgasm that releases doplamine.
It is not just a sin issue it is a root issue that produces sin.
Fornication and incest –
What is behind the molestation. It is more than just sin. It is an addiction. The need to be loved. No outlet. Being unfulfilled. The driving force
Personal lust gratification – it is not lust but the need to be love. The lust give sthe picture to create the drive. To create the adrenaline rush.
Dopamine. Same as cocaine. The need for a chemical covering is a bad exchange for the need for peace.
Dependency – highly dependent on others. Poverity comes with it. rEjection, full of shame, childish. Sometimes in a male femaile alcoholic profile, the relationship is like a mother and a son. Running away from home for periods of time going out getting drunk disappearing in benges avoiding reality, that includes repentance (I will never do it again) that only producing more guilt. Pouting that is a form of control and abuse. The silent treatment that is a form of emotional abuse. Fits of rage, fear of man fear of rejection, self hatred, hatred of men, women children, hatred of insecurity. Multilble fears. Jealosoy, verbal, emotional, secual abuse, physical abuse cronic abuse from the spouse that is a victime. Insanity, gulilt, worthlessness, low self esteem, shame, blame, insecurity in the spouse and the children . Sickness and disease in the spouse and the children. Insanity and depression in the spouse and the children. Critial spirit, critism controlling another, being hard on the family, being cruel on the family. Difficulty showing love. Hard harded never allowing the spouse to have joy in anything. Snearing rejecting what another has done.
The victims, are rejected, withdrdawn, depressed, sickness exhaustion, being over weight, self-hatred, loneliness, mental confusion, hopelessness, shame, anger, fear of suicide and death.
The alcholic is more denial more cruelity, more hardness, more pride, more self guilt, arrogance, self hatred, more shaem, more shelf pity, more suicide. Many addictions are inherited in the family tree.
This is the armor of Luke 11. This is the stuff that the strongman of addiction is counting on to keep in place in the person’s life so you cannot overthrow him and he controls him in the need for love.
To remove armor, you begin to show God’s love, bring to bring the person to a place to accept or relieved that they are loved. That is the first principal. Perfect love cast out fear. Acceptance, esteem.
Alchologic, child is born with a defective chemistry base in the baselganglia. It is spiritual but is reinforced from a biological standpoint. IN the baselganglia there are four basic categories of neurotransmitters. One of them is defective genetically at birth.
Science, has said this about alholo. Child is born with a defective chemistry model in the baselganglia. Alhocol is a drug. It goes right to the brain. That is the pathway. It passes through the baselganglia. Chemical units with the defective chemical in the baselganglia producing a chemical reaction that produces another chemical reaction that produces another chemical reality in the baselganglia called THIQ. THIQ now been formed in the addictive personality the mechanislm of THIQ is to produce a biological craving for alcohol.
You not only have the spiritual but now you have the biological. IN ministry, in al. in the gift of miracles we command the baselganglia to become normalized. Break the inherited patterns of unloving spirits and we speak directly into the genetic pattern and we command that defective chemistry and that new chemical THIQ to be eraticaed to of the work of the HS. We pronounce in the name of the Lord Jesus that the baselgangla be reformed and conformed to the way it should have been from the foundation of the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
You could have been conceived in drunkenness out of wedlock because of alcohol inherited alcoholic patterns in childhood. The alcohol and drugs helps to hide inferiorities and insecurities and rejection.
Armor: Inherited characteristic. Iniquities and whoredoms in the family tree that need to be dealt with. Co-dependency that goes with it that is a form of victimization.
Co-dependency is calling evil good in the name of love. Behind the scene you have cruelity, rage, verbal abuse, retailiation, self-hatred, violence, slander, malance, gossip, sleeplessness, nervous stomoach, nervousness, headaches, red eyes, physical illness, poor eating habits, nervous breakdowns, cirosis of the liver, anxiety, fear of being rejected, paranoya, fear of failure, resentment, fear of being unwanted, guilt, insecurity, self hatred, intimidation, hopelessness, hatred of others, inability to give or receive love freely, 1 John 4:18. Impairment of decisions, shame, condemnation, depression, inability to communicate, slow thinking, feelings of worthlessness, despair, sorrow, emptiness, no hope, jealosy, madness, despair, torment. These are just a small area of the armor that needs to be stripped in order to produce freedom.
Accepting my sonship. Learning to love God and to receive God and that I am ok and that I am love. The ability to give and receive love keeps me and preserves me in my marriage. Keeps me from pornograpy and keeps me from adultery and keeps me safe and I don’t even have to think about it.
Relationships, romance, and sex from a Christian angle
Relationships, acceptance, love, and belonging are our deepest human needs. We are designed to relate to God, and each other. In a fallen world, people mess up on all these things probably more than anything else, and are searching for answers on the Internet. There is a big need for pages that really identify with people in these felt needs. Here is a selection of pages. You may or may not agree with every part or every approach in what is a very sensitive area, but they are offered here as snapshot of what is possible. Read also how the same approach is being used on Australian TV. Please tell us of other pages to add. There is certainly a big need for more pages to cover these subjects sensitively and in an accessible non-condemning way.
