Lust is evidence for your thirst for God

How to Stop Lust, Pornography, and Sexual Addictions by Experiencing God Intensely! (Click on the link)

When we hunger and thirst for things in this world (sex, materialism, power, honor, etc.), it's an indicator that we long for something even greater and better than all of those things- God. Real nourishment (which is actually a spiritual type of nourishment) comes from doing the will of God.

I hope this song will encourage you- "Give us clean hands" by Chris Tomlin:

Worship God only and give Him thanks.  Don't commit idolatry by lusting after an object's/person's beauty. This will prevent your mind from becoming dark, confused (refer Romans 1:21-24), and enslaved to sin. Jesus also emphasized much on inner purity today which even many Christians (i.e. carnal Christians) ignore today. Our psychological and spiritual power to succeed against sin and the ability to succeed in our education/careers starts with taming our thoughts (refer to Mark 7:20-23). Many times, I've wished that I could be like the Jedi who were empowered by the Force in the fictional universe of Star Wars. God helped me realize that He is the real Force (power) that exists today and He wants to empower us. Thus, take heart (be encouraged) by the truth that the Holy Spirit can empower you to overcome everything you face in life (ex. sins, problems which seem impossible to overcome) if you will allow Him to come and live in you (refer to John 14:15-17).

Demonic spirits are responsible for attacking you with fear, anxiety, depression, covetousness, lust, envy, hatred, etc. Whenever you face such negative thoughts, learn to recognize that it is Satan and his demons working through the world around you to attack you with their spiritual flaming arrows designed to destroy you mentally/spiritually. In order to defend against their spiritual/psychological weapons, you must take up the armor of God (refer to Ephesians 6:10-18). You need the "shield of faith" to defend against the fiery darts of fear, depression, lust, envy, etc. As your offensive weapon, you also need the "Sword of the Spirit" which is the word of God (Scripture aka the Holy Bible) to fight back against Satan, his demons, and the evil people in this world they use to attack your mind (it's psychological warfare). When you are tormented by any negative thought, the Body of Christ is being attacked also. Remind evil spirits of that truth. That should instill fear in them as they are messing with Christ's body. Hence, when they try to instill fear in you, you can instill fear back in them as they all fear God. Their main strategy is trying to throw you off balance continuously by taking your mind off of God. Our tendency is for us to sink in fear even when we think we are standing strong in God. If you sink in fear, it means you're not standing strong in God as you lack faith. You fight fear and depression with faith. Thus, if you want to remain unshakable, you must have an unshakable faith even when Satan, his demons, and the world around you tries to instill fear in you (think of it as them throwing objects of fear at you but you standing fast by faith and knocking down everything they throw at you).

Mark 7:20-23 (NLT):
"And then he added, “It is what comes from inside that defiles you. 21 For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 23 All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you.”

Refer to my other post also regarding lust ("A perspective to overcome lust") for a more detailed discussion.

Bible passage for reference:

John 4:10,13-15,31-38 (NLT):
"Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”

13 Jesus replied, “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. 14 But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.”

15 “Please, sir,” the woman said, “give me this water! Then I’ll never be thirsty again, and I won’t have to come here to get water.”

31 Meanwhile, the disciples were urging Jesus, “Rabbi, eat something.”

32 But Jesus replied, “I have a kind of food you know nothing about.”

33 “Did someone bring him food while we were gone?” the disciples asked each other.

34 Then Jesus explained: “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work. 35 You know the saying, ‘Four months between planting and harvest.’ But I say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest. 36 The harvesters are paid good wages, and the fruit they harvest is people brought to eternal life. What joy awaits both the planter and the harvester alike! 37 You know the saying, ‘One plants and another harvests.’ And it’s true. 38 I sent you to harvest where you didn’t plant; others had already done the work, and now you will get to gather the harvest.”

All sociopaths will get what they deserve in the future

Recently, I've been seeing a celebrity having a hard time in his own life. He's clearly a sociopath and people have hated him for a long time. I didn't agree with his sociopathic behavior and tactics, but I always thought perhaps some good might still be in him. Nevertheless, things are falling apart in his own life despite the success he's had in the past. Now people are trolling him and enjoying seeing his fall from glory. I hope he learns his lesson, repents, and becomes a better person so that God will lift him up in due time. However, if he chooses to continue to indulge in his sociopathic behavior, he invites his own destruction. This is how Satan blinds people today (he blinds them through their success to make them think that as long as they have success, it's ok to be evil) . He is the ultimate sociopath. With human sociopaths, change is still possible, even though it's a difficult and rare thing for them to change. However, with Satan, he will never …

Pastor Anish Kavalam's ban on pants and ties for men

I found this video funny [refer to Pastor Anish Kavalam's criticism of those who wear pants and ties]. I like the Mr. Bean reactions along with the circus music in the background. Made it funnier. I've heard some sermons of Pastor Anish Kavalam calling out people (both men and women) regarding immodest clothing and carnal minded behavior in church meetings- which were good messages. However, his ban against pants and ties are going to the extreme of the conservative end of the spectrum. Also, in this clip, some of the pastors sitting behind him are also wearing pants. Thus, his criticism seems hypocritical in that manner also. This war between extremist conservatives and extremist liberals along with the elitism promoted by both groups is what is destroying Malayalee churches. Malayalees have been terrorists (through psychological abuse/bullying) in their churches for a long time. It's part of their church politics and elitism. Now it has spread to the internet where psych…

Brethren vs Pentecostal debate (Snehasamvadham)

Couple of months back, various Malayalee Brethren and Pentecostal Bible teachers came together to have a debate regarding various topics. Refer to the following links:

(1). Pentacost-Brethren Snehasamvadham- Dallas 2016

(2).Post-debate thoughts by Pr. Shibu Peediakal and Br. Ashish Jacob

(3).Pr. Shibu Peediakal refuting Brethren Assembly Preachers again

One of the topics that Pastor Shibu has addressed in various clips on his Youtube channel is regarding speaking in tongues (which of course, the Brethren teach that this gift has ceased with the early Church). Personally, I don't believe that the gift of tongues has ceased. Will all believers speak in tongues to demonstrate they have been baptized by the Holy Ghost? It's a very controversial question and subject. From studying Scripture, I personally haven't been convinced that speaking in tongues is a mandatory requirement for all believers. Each has a different gift that the Holy Ghost gives them in order to minister to o…
