HOW TO GUARD YOUR HEART
FROM THIS WORLD?
Have we ever heard anyone says 'follow your heart' or 'let the heart guide you'? Maybe you also heard “believe in yourself, you alone are stronger than fear” or “Do not measuring the fear, otherwise you will be overpower” nor “Meditate your mind, heart, body, and spirit where you can overcome the pain” I'm sure some of us have. Well brother and sister, that advisement often can be dangerous suggestions. Everyday we are sub-consciously influenced by what people says or what things we're dealing with can completely be unaware and dangerous to face with. When we are surrounding by people or the advertisements throughout the media are saying; we may not know what the outcome of the influence or temptation could lead us into this world. If we fall in for it without being diligence to our heart and mind? Just because we are living in a world between good and evil and we don't want to get caught in dark trouble. Since we need to property our wisdom mind of who truly can help us master the dark side of all the troubling that trying to put us down in a awful suffering way.
Life can be so hard to live or how to make a decision that is a correct choice. Because we want to make sure our life in in the right path. It is not surprising to see how there is some who like to make a bad choice. Those who like to make a bad choice are dealing with evil. At the other hand, sometime we as the good person thought we made the right choice turnout to be the bad one? This is the reason why I, Bro. Pouliot want to share with you why we need to understand why we have to be very careful how we choose. Whether the subject matter we have in our mind-work to make the right decision are good or bad choice. Because we have this sin in us since birth, and we are likely to make mistake. Sometime we don't think twice or getting the wrong information. Most people don't realize how much damage we can get into without having the right master to help us.
Most people may not agree where all the troubling come from is from sin. How all the negative situation bring this to us, bring us down with a suffering horrible feeling which we do not wish to deal with. Where we do not wish to fall illnesses or death. This is where we have to basic understand where and why we have this sin live in us or how did it get in this world where we live? There is ONE kind of only books which can answer us all this questions? In our modern day, there is a book called The Holy Bible or Tanakh (Torah, Nevi'lm and Ketuvim) and the Natsarism writings (the New Testament books) which is also called The Messianic Writings.
According to the book of Genesis, the first man who once live upon earth had a wife was tempted by this Satan who took in the form of a serpent. Satan once a good angel named Lucifer, build this sin in this world when the change of heart gone dark. Lucifer sinned against our Creator ONE, YAHUAH. YAH cast him down from the high position Lucifer once had on earth. According to Isaiah 14:12-14, further describes that Satan's sin and was cut down to the ground because of this sin he said in his own heart that he would be above YAH. He was determined to set up his own throne that men might worship him. When the wife gave his husband the forbidden fruit and ate it too, both have also sin against YAH's command because they were told not to eat this forbidden fruit before Satan had appeared to the wife to be trick. Both and the world have change the Life on earth where sin of death were added. The paradise of only life on earth were no longer good and perfect. Now we have two master over this earthly world, YAHUAH and Satan.
Since sins have been around this world for many thousands year, we are dealing with good and evil spiritual works for year. We cannot see this spiritual work on us or this world and how limit of knowledge we know about this good and evil come from. Since our heavenly Father, YAHUAH still visit his creation people and taught them how to survive on earth from sins. He have been delivery and reminding people about the good news salvation.
YAH have first written on stones and now on a scrolls of paper for us to remember what HE had taught us how to live right from wrong. By this commandments law he have delivered us for years. He also have wrote the law in our hearts and mind (Hebrews 10:16). Since YAHUAH knew in time we would still keep sinning even people make mistake. He also know how people would have forgotten his teaching as well. This is the reason why we have been struggling with sin when we do not deal with the scriptural books. Satan with his evil spiritual work have been trying influence our mind and heart into the wrong way. Where Satan's goal is to destroy Yah's creation people. “Through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned.” (Romans 5:12) All people die because they all sin.—Romans 3:23. This is why the wages of sin is death we have to deal with it (Romans 6:23). Satan have taken the ruler-ship of this world for a temporary time because the first man and his wife had fall in to sin and become a salve of Satan's world but Satan do not own the world and he did not created it. The good news is, YAHUAH have already made the salvation plan to save us from eternal death of Satan's work. One day there will be no more sins in this world (or any where in the universe as well). We will live without sin and won't die but live forever in Paradise.
Since we were born on earth to live, we have been struggling to live for the good and perfect in life along with the sin of death. We often do forget that it is impossible to have a 100% perfect good life because we can not remove sin in us (or in the world).
“Man who is born of a woman is few of days and full of trouble. He comes out like a flower and withers; he flees like a shadow and continues not. And do you open your eyes on such a one and bring me into judgment with you? Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? There is not one” - Job 14:1-4
“Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins” -Ecclesiastes 7:20
Since Yahuah have brought this law of life for us to recognize the sin and do what is right-rulings - Galatians 3:19 “Why the Law then? It was added because of transgressions...”
Since our fallen humanity, we cannot act apart from our nature. We can see the sin nature at work even in a child who is not trained in their behavior often disobeys and is selfish naturally, they do not need to learn this or recognize it. Yet, we do have the responsibility to teach the children how to behave and how to live correctly from wrong. The scriptures book teaches that we're to act on our nature. The Psalmist says in chapter 58:3 “the wicked go astray from the womb, they err from their birth speaking lies”. Job 15:14 "What is man, that he could be pure? And he who is born of a woman, that he could be righteous?” Job 25:4. How then can a man be righteous before YAHUAH?
"Through one man's trespass, judgment came to all men, for by one man's disobedience all were made sinners." - Romans 5:18-19
Now we should understand that there is sin of evil in this world, all that is done under the sun. Also, the hearts of the children of man are full of evil, and madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead - Ecclesiastes 9:3. We also must understand that our heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it - Jeremiah 17:9? This is why we should not fall in people own wisdom advisement to “follow your heart” or “Meditate your mind, heart, body, and spirit where you can overcome the pain”. That is why we have to be careful how we taken the suggestions by man own word without the scriptural books. So the question is, how to guard our heart from all this troubling of this world? So that we may not be tempt to do wrong or make the mistake?
To understand how to live properly at best we can even if we still fall to sin? According to the book of Proverbs 23:19, we should listen or read YAH's words to be wise and correct our mind in the course of our heart properly. We also must trust in our heavenly Father with all our heart, lean not on our own understanding; Know Him in all our ways. He will still help us and lead us the paths straight. Plus, it also said that we should not be wise in our OWN understanding from what we see or do. We are to fear HIM and to turn away from evil way. Because Proverbs 28:26 also teaches that whom ever trusts in his or her own mind (even the hearts) is foolish, but whoever walk in the wisdom of YAH's teaching will be delivered for the good life. Yah will give us a new heart and put a new good spirit in us and HE shall take the heart of stone out of our flesh and HE will give us a heart of flesh. He can cause those who walk in HIS laws and guard HIS right-rulings and shall do them - Ezekiel 36:26-27.
"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of YAH, what is good and acceptable and perfect.... Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good" - Romans 12:2. 23
"Do not love the world nor that which is in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Because all that is in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life–is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world passes away and the lust of it, but the one doing the desire of Almighty ONE remains forever" - 1st John 15-17
Above of all, we need to watch over our heart and mind work with all diligence, For out of it are the sources of life. Whatever we may face upon earth. We should also turn away from our crooked mouth and put perverse lips far from ourselves. Plus, we should be careful how we look at but keep straight forward as Proverbs similarly teaches this in chapter 4:23-27. Proverbs also tells us that we are to guard our heart; then it also speaks of us not hardening our heart, and we need to know this difference as well. So, we should see why we can't not only rely on our own heart but to have the careful judgment with the words of YAH's teaching law with our mind set work and the hearts. Which why Proverbs 3:5-7 said “Trust in YAHUAH with all your heart, Lean not on your own understanding; Know Him in all your ways, And He makes all your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear YAHUAH and turn away from evil”. Let the WORD of the ONE from heaven dwell in us about the truth and the way of life that isn't we we see into this world.
"Focus your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.... Let the Word of MessiYah dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing with pleasure in your hearts to the Master in psalms and songs of praise and spiritual songs"
- Colossians 3:2, 16
"Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life" - Revelation 2:10
Sometime we do get anxious or fear of such thing which we feel like drowning into a major trouble or dealing with such pain or near death. We often forget not to let the sinful nature control our mind of the feeling and let YAH take care of our troubling.
"Do not be anxious about anything—but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to YAH. And the shalom of YAH, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Messiah, YahuSha." - Philippians 4:6-7
"Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and ‘you will find rest for your souls.’ [a] 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” - Matthew 11:28-30
" Get rid of all bitterness and rage and anger and quarreling and slander, along with all malice. 32 Instead, be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving each other just as God in Messiah also forgave you." - Ephesians 4:31-32
According to Revelation book 2:10, the message tell us that we do not need to fear what we may about to deal with, whether we suffer or not. To be ware that there will be a time when someone,
a person is full of evil, he or she will throw some of us into prison, this could be a tested during the tribulation time. This scripture also want us to remind us to stay faithful until death. Yah will reward us crown of life. So once again, remember what the scriptural said in 1st John 2:15-17 that we should not live by the world but the heavenly way. This way we will be strong and have faith with YAH's help.
“YAH is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear…” - Psalm 46:1-2
“I (YAH) have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things…and the YAH of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:8-9
“So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your Master ONE, I will strengthen you and help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
