Christianity, Daddy Freeze: Miracles, Strange Spiritualties, Pride & Faith -By Nneka Okumazie

Filed under: Article of Faith |

Pride is a theory on why some believe there is problem with submitting to GOD. Submission of thoughts to a list of prescribed things, and acts like someone is watching – standards beyond regular ethics, morals or discipline – are massive qualities of the Faith.

The submission is the genuine Christianity. Repentance, salvation, holiness, sanctification, consecration, faith, evangelism, prayers, hopes, giving, etc. can be related with submitting to GOD.

The Christian Faith is not of pride. Yes, there is a lot of love, mercy, grace and forgiveness by Christ, not equality.

This total humility is what others can never understand – that thoughts have to be true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report. But this submission is a shield.

When thoughts are voluntarily submitted as this and trained to think around these things, it may be difficult to have out of control thoughts and give in to worries or anxiety.

Also, the humility to do things in secret which – if exposed – wouldn’t be worrying, could help build character; avoiding acts that may happen involuntarily that brings disgrace.

The choice to have Faith in GOD could mean foolishness to others but it isn’t. The choice to believe that GOD can do all things is a valid one.

There are numerous testimonies in the Scriptures beyond physical possibilities but they happened. GOD is Superior and Supreme Sovereign.

The LORD respects honesty and holiness beyond anything worldly.

[Matthew 7:22, Many will say to ME in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Thy name? and in Thy name have cast out devils? and in Thy name done many wonderful works?] [Matthew 7:23, And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.]

It can be possible some people prayed in the name of the LORD, and because of the power in the name of JESUS, things happened. It is also possible some lied they did, but their deception – for Christ – failed.

GOD answers prayers and He does wonders. Though there are fake miracles and bewitchment.

[Acts 8:9, But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:] [Acts 8:10, To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.]

They may have said so because they were already bewitched.

There are strange spiritualties that can control, but may seem ordinary to all. That is why prayer is really important for genuine Christians, not play, but prayer.

Prayer can be like defense, in the spiritual, against things that are coming – unknown and unanticipated.

While it may seem like answers aren’t physical, but a lot of work is done in the spiritual.

There are lots of strange acts, stories, experiences, mysteries, thoughts and effects, across the world. There are perfect pretenders and those, expert at deceit. There are things that are not normal wrong with some, but vaguely interpreted by diagnoses.

In the Scriptures, there were those who used strange powers, or had strange motives.

[Acts 13:8, But Elymas, the sorcerer (as his name means in Greek), interfered and urged the governor to pay no attention to what Barnabas and Saul said. He was trying to keep the governor from believing.] [Genesis 11:4, And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top [may reach] unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.] [Nehemiah 4:8, And conspired all of them together to come [and] to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it.] [Nehemiah 4:8, They all made plans to come and fight against Jerusalem and throw us into confusion.]

But sorrow awaits those like these.

[Micah 2:1, What sorrow awaits you who lie awake at night, thinking up evil plans. You rise at dawn and hurry to carry them out, simply because you have the power to do so.]

Science can’t solve every problem, technology can’t, therapy can’t, medicine can’t, psychology can’t, meditation can’t, etc. Wickedness, bitterness, hate, envy, unknown motives, deception, etc. are difficult for science.

There are complex complications – so strange, it takes getting more into it for reprieve. It is even possible some who should be in the LORD’s side, can also go to war within. And with all the choice men, still fail.

[Judges 20:16, Among Benjamin’s elite troops, 700 were left-handed, and each of them could sling a rock and hit a target within a hairsbreadth without missing.]

Life seems to be operational physically and beyond. But genuine Christianity gives an advantage against the strange and the unknown.

[2 Corinthians 12:2, I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: GOD knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third Heaven.] [Isaiah 33:2, O LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.] [2 Corinthians 12:3,And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: GOD knoweth;)] [Joshua 5:14, And he said, Nay; but [as] captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my Lord unto his servant?]
