Pitfalls for Christians – Oppression and Depression – and what to do about it

As is pointed out in the sermon included in this post, Christians shouldn’t be subject to spiritual possession – but they could bear the weight of spiritual oppression.

While some suffering will be part of our lives, we must realize that the enemy, the devil wants to steal our joy and rob us from communion with our God. We must know where our love, joy and peace comes from.

What should we do in those trying times?

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

– I Peter 5:6-11

Here is a great message from Pastor David Lankford that deals with trying times and spiritual oppression.

There is after all, a simple solution. It is not always easy for us, since we fill our lives with so many other things and distractions.

Paul describes the simplicity of devotion to Christ.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” – II Corinthians 11:3

Original Christianity – Two documentary trailers

Not Catholic, Not Protestant. Neither of those are in the Bible, and one follows the other except in minor points.

Simply… Christian

A Pale Horse Rides – how barbarians transformed their lives, completely separate from the influence of the Roman empire. History of the Waldenses, and more.

The Way – how Protestant churches have entirely thrown out the Old Testament, and even the practices of Jesus. How modern people are re-discovering the teachings of the entire Bible, in a trend called the Hebrew Roots movement.

Tenth Avenue North – Control

God You don’t need me
But somehow You want me
Oh, how You love me
Somehow that frees me
To open my hands up
And give You control
I give You control
